(EAW intro plays.)

(Friday Night Dynasty opens up with a recap of last week’s episode: Andre Walker has his opening promo interrupted by Bronson Daniels, as the two of them trade jabs before a brawl is unleashed, with Bronson getting the better of the World Heavyweight Champion in the end. Caroline wins a number one contendership match for the New Breed Championship, which Ruler responds to, warning her of what’s to come at Justified Reckoning. Amir Yusuf beats Jay Jerry Johnson. Joso has his promo interrupted by the aforementioned Jay Jerry Johnson who puts out a challenge for the Interwire Championship, which Joso swiftly denies. Tyrone Montgomery rewards Milli Banks with a Specialists Championship shot at Justified Reckoning, in which Serenity Valdez interrupts, making a statement to her newly confirmed challenger. Astraea Jordan gets a win over the returning Sierra Bradford. Sienna Jade cuts a promo challenging Harper Lee to a Universal Women’s Championship match at Justified Reckoning, before then beating Madison Kaline in her return match. The new and improved Soul Food Sunday cut a promo inside the ring, welcoming all challengers but already putting themselves above them. The Visual Prophet and SOSA Henderson then go on to beat the Off-Brand Amphetamines. Limmy Monaghan has a backstage promo which is interrupted by Amir Yusuf with it ending in a brawl that has to be separated between the two. In the main event, Bronson Daniels and Serenity Valdez ends in an Andre Walker interference forcing the referee to call off the match, before he lays out Bronson in revenge for what happened at the beginning of the night to stand tall in what ends the show and the recap.)

(As a firework display around the entrance stage lights up the arena, it’s after that with lights waving over various sections of the crowd that the Dakar Arena is shown to be alive with excited fans! Cameras pan over the audience while an edited, clean version of “P.A.T.” by Denzel Curry plays into the building before cutting down to the commentary table.)

Stew-O: The clock is winding down and we are just 22 days away from the first brand-exclusive Free-Per-View of the Season, Justified Reckoning! Welcoming you all tonight to another exciting episode… of FRIDAY NIGHT DYNASTY!!!

Flannery McCoy: And let me just tell you, what a show from top to bottom we have for you guys tonight. Kicking it off we have PJ Hendrx facing Aubrey Mack. Afterward, Shane Gates will be going up against one-half of the Off-Brand Amphetamines in Solomon Stane. Next up Jay Jerry Johnson will be facing the New Breed Champion Ruler. Then Milli Banks will be facing Sierra Bradford.

Jake Mercer: THEN FINALLY in our main event! We have THE NEW ERA Joso facing… um… Amir Yusuf, yeah that’s his name. I agree Flan, what an exciting show! So let’s kick this off right now with someone that is a fan favorite here in EAW!

(Friday Night Dynasty goes from the commentary booth to the entrance stage upon the sound of ‘Sweet Dreams’ by Eurythmics, Annie Lennox & Dave Stewart being heard blasting through the speakers. The Senegal crowd immediately erupts into resounding boos, with the camera panning over to show Saturday Night Showdown’s Harper Lee beginning to make her way out from the backstage area. She has the Universal Women’s Championship in her hands, wasting no time taking it and raising it into the air while pyro is seen shooting out behind her. She brings her Championship down to a resting place on her shoulder, a grin on her face while she scans the crowd continuing to shower the Champion in negativity, before beginning to make her way down the ramp and toward the ring from there.)

Stephie Love: Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome… the EAW UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPION!!!!!!!!!! HARPER LEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Stew-O: Well look how we’re kicking off the show, a visit from Showdown’s Universal Women’s Champion, Harper Lee! We know why she’s out here though, and that’s because of the recent events that have taken place with one Sienna Jade, who recently returned at Territorial Invasion, and in a big way of course. She confronted Harper and had a staredown, making a statement that she wanted her Championship, before just last week on Dynasty challenging her at Justified Reckoning for the gold, and Harper seems more than happy to respond to that tonight.

Flannery McCoy: But who knows how she’s going to respond, that’s the question that we should be asking ourselves right now. We know that Harper has… a little… of an ego, so what’s going to stop her from flat-out declining Sienna a shot at her title? Better yet, what’s going to happen once Sienna Jade inevitably comes out to respond to her? All of these mysteries and more, we’re about to find out right now!

Jake Mercer: What is this, an anime? Save yourself the suspension, Flan, I get we’re excited but that doesn’t mean we have to geek out here.

Flannery McCoy: Uh huh, *I’m* the one that geeks out, alright.

Jake Mercer: Hey, just because I know what brand of toothpaste Harper uses DOES NOT mean I geek out. 🙄

(Harper makes her way up the steel steps and into the ring, heading up to the top rope and confidently raising her Championship one more time. She then jumps off and lands on the canvas before heading over and snatching a microphone into her possession. She turns around and makes her way toward the center of the ring, all while ‘Sweet Dreams’ begins to come to a close. From there, Harper brings her microphone up to her mouth and begins to speak toward the crowd.)

Harper Lee: Wow, what a warm welcome to Friday Night Dynasty. Thank you, everyone! 🥰

(Harper’s words cause the crowd to boo even louder, while she scoffs before continuing to speak.)

Harper Lee: Oh, believe me, I wouldn’t want to be here either. But unfortunately, I don’t have much of a choice, considering my obligations as Champion have brought me here today to address… well, it’s something. At Territorial Invasion, I got absolutely disrespected by a washed-up has-been who tried to viciously leech off my fame and popularity. While that could be anyone, turns out, that was Sienna Jade, and I’m just so intimidated! I’m so scared that EAW legend Sienna Jade has decided to challenge me for my Universal Women’s Championship! I don’t want my reign to end! Yeah, no. I’m not going to waste any time because I feel like what I’m going to say is obvious, but nobody cares. Nobody cares about the 20th Sienna Jade return and quite frankly, nobody cares about her either, so I can’t really blame her for trying to come after me as a last-ditch effort. But while people would have cared if this was the stone age and she was in her prime, the issue is, it isn’t and she isn’t.

Harper Lee: Sienna has done nothing more than let down this company for the past few years and the fact she’s managed to get away with it so many times is absolutely baffling to me. I mean, when was the last time she was actually relevant? The only point in recent memory when that comes to mind is that absolutely abysmal National Elite Championship reign, but even then surpassing that now is a low bar to reach. Maybe it’s not that though, maybe more the fact that she’s just never been good. She has branded herself as this woman that has inspired so many of the Elitists that you watch today! She’s ‘The Greatest’! People are meant to care when she enters a ring! But really, is that true? ESPECIALLY when you have someone like myself in the conversation, are you kidding yourself to even consider Sienna a valid contender in that? Absolutely, and I just don’t see what makes her so great in the eyes of many, enough to think she can walk around here and do whatever she wants, ESPECIALLY at my expense.

Harper Lee: At that point, this brings me to the challenge at hand, sigh… Justified Reckoning. Look, I’ll be honest-

(Suddenly, ‘Unf**kwithable’ by Deez Nuts is heard with Harper giving off an audible groan. The camera goes over to show Sienna Jade beginning to make her way out to the stage, a smile on her face while she claps her hands toward the Universal Women’s Champion sarcastically. She already has a microphone in her hand as she signals for her music to be cut off, slowly beginning to make her way down the ramp before speaking toward Harper from there.)

Sienna Jade: Harper, do you want to know something?

Harper Lee: No, but you’re going to tell me anyway so what’s the point?

Sienna Jade: When people have the conversation of who’s the greatest female Elitist of all time, nine-out-of-ten times I’m going to be included in that. There is nobody that has done it like me, none that can replicate the type of impact that I’ve had on people just like you. Even if you don’t know it, somehow, someway, you’re being influenced by me; so it comes as no surprise that the follower on the other hand wouldn’t even come close to being considered one of the greatest. You can wave that Championship in my face all you like, but we live in a reality where Serena Bennett managed to hold two of those, it’s less about the possession and more about the holder. And the way I see it, Harper, you’ll fall just like everyone else. So if you think that me beating you is something that is unobtainable, then you just don’t know who the hell I am. You should’ve got your facts straight before coming out here.

(Harper waits for Sienna to finish before rolling her eyes and giving a loud and obnoxious yawn in response to what she had to say. It’s clear she doesn’t take what ‘The Greatest’ is saying so seriously and shakes her head before bringing her microphone back up to her mouth.)

Harper Lee: 🥱 Alright, now that that’s over… Sienna, let me ask you something, do you honestly think it matters what those people think? Their opinions on who’s the greatest, that proverbial measuring stick, do you really hold that close to your heart just because you’re at the top of their list? I don’t understand, because the most you’d get out of it is a pat on the back, never anything more, and definitely not a Universal Women’s Championship match. What’s funnier to me is that through you responding to me, you ignore the point I put out there before you came out. It was that you haven’t been important in, no exaggeration, YEARS. Not once has anyone looked at Sienna Jade and thought that she could pose a threat in modern-day EAW, and that’s not just through words, that’s through proof. You’ve given us proof these past few years by constantly letting us down time after time again. You have nothing to show for yourself, and now you have the audacity to come up here and try to say otherwise? You’re kidding yourself trying to challenge me.

(Sienna jumps up onto the apron and enters the ring, sighing before continuing to speak once again.)

Sienna Jade: I don’t need to explain anything to you or anyone Harper, you already know who I am, and regardless of what year or generation that we’re in you cannot deny what I can consistently bring to the table. I will always deliver regardless of the scenario and when I don’t, well, I will do everything to make sure that it goes my way. Which is the scenario when it comes to your Universal Women’s Championship, which I indeed want. It’s not a question of whether or not I can hang with Harper Lee or not, because I’ve proven that I can do that and more, but it’s a question of whether or not Harper Lee can hang with Sienna Jade. Regardless of how you look at it, it doesn’t take away from the fact that I’m not going to settle for being empty-handed when the two of us are going to step into the ring at Justified Reckoning.

Harper Lee: I never confirmed anything of the sort-

Sienna Jade: I’m going to make sure that I walk out adding another World Championship to my already extensive list of accolades. Then, there will be no question of whether or not I truly live up to the name of ‘The Greatest’, because not only have I already proved that, but I will have solidified it with the new piece of gold around my waist. No matter what you try to do, there is absolutely nothing you can do about it. That brings me to the challenge…

Harper Lee: I was getting there until you interrupted me.

Sienna Jade: I know, but I just couldn’t help it, and wanted to hear you accept it in person. Besides, the opportunity to face someone of my caliber? Why would you decline it??? Don’t tell me you’re scared now…

(Harper’s eyebrow twitches while Sienna says that, bowing her head down while slowly bringing her microphone up again.)

Harper Lee: This is annoying. I’ll accept it just so you can shut up, deal?

(Sienna smirks upon hearing that, with the crowd erupting into cheers after hearing Harper give in to the challenge.)

Sienna Jade: I’ll see you at Justified Reckoning.

Harper Lee: I said shut up- Whatever, sure.

(Harper drops her microphone down to the ground before rolling her eyes again as she rolls out of the ring, not even giving a second glance at Sienna even after the match of great proportions that has been made official.)

Stew-O: WOW, what a dream match set in stone for Justified Reckoning. The Universal Champion, Harper Lee will be defending her title against none other than Sienna Jade! I don’t know about you guys, but that makes an already exciting night even more exciting!

Flannery McCoy: I certainly agree, and we know what these two Elitists can do under the bright lights. They deliver and I’m sure that will be no different when the two of them step into the ring with one another. What a start to Friday Night Dynasty tonight folks, but the show has just begun, we’re coming at you right after this commercial break with jam-packed action right to your television screen!

(Sienna seems unphased by Harper’s disrespect, instead just smirking and making a Championship gesture around her waist while ‘Unf**kwithable’ begins to play up once again. It’s the last shot seen, as from there, Friday Night Dynasty then begins to fade out to elsewhere.)

(A commercial is shown for Justified Reckoning, featuring the newly confirmed Universal Women’s Championship match between Harper Lee and Sienna Jade.)

Stephie Love: The following contest is scheduled for… ONE FALL!!!!!!!!!

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

(‘Mack 10, Mack 10’ by Mack 10 begins to play throughout the arena to a loud reaction of cheers as Aubrey Mack would make his way onto the stage. He begins to walk down the rampway, before entering the ring, and backing into his corner.)

Stephie Love: Introducing first… from Frankfort, Kentucky… weighing in at 216 pounds… The “Big Mack’… AUBREY MACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(‘Mack 10, Mack 10’ would fade out, as it would then be replaced by ‘DNA’ by Kendrick Lamar, the cheers getting louder as PJ Hendrx would walk onto the stage. He begins to make his way down the rampway, but making his time, walking with a limp from the injured knee as he would enter the ring and back into his corner, and ‘DNA’ would fade away.)

Stephie Love: And his opponent… from Charlotte, North Carolina… weighing in at 195 pounds… ‘PHANTOM’… PJ HENDRX!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(DING! DING! DING!)

Stew-O: AND HERE WE GO! PJ Hendrx and Aubrey Mack meet in the middle of the ring, and they both lock up! These two are holding their ground looking for someone to make the first move, and it looks like it’s going to Aubrey as he immediately goes for the injured knee! PJ knows that he is put at a disadvantage right now from the injury he suffered last week, as he quickly hops into the ropes, forcing the referee to break them apart.

Flannery McCoy: Aubrey Mack backs away as PJ is able to get back into this match, but you can tell that he has a limp on him, as he limps back towards Aubrey, and they lock up once again, but this time PJ quickly takes advantage and grabs Aubrey by the arm, before going around, and pushing Aubrey down to his knees.

Jake Mercer: And PJ Hendrx slaps Aubrey right upside the back of his head! You can tell that Aubrey is not happy about that, as PJ goes running off the ropes, but his knee is definitely going to be an issue for his usual fast pace style, as Aubrey is quickly back up, and he grabs a hold of PJ before dropping him down into a quick crucifix pin!

OOONNNEEE!!!!!!!!!

Stew-O: But PJ Hendrx easily powers his way out of the pin attempt! Both men get back up to their feet, and Aubrey Mack grabs a hold of PJ’s leg once again! And it looks like Aubrey is going to attempt a dragon screw, as he goes to drop down, but PJ drops early, and PJ grabs a hold of Aubrey’s arm, and instead of the dragon screw connecting, it was Hendrx connecting with an arm drag!

Flannery McCoy: And now PJ Hendrx is able to quickly get back up to his feet as Aubrey gets to his knees, and PJ quickly just boots Aubrey right in the face pushing him back down to the ground. Hendrx is trying his hardest to make sure that his knee is able to put weight on it, but as we saw last week, he did mess it up pretty badly. Aubrey is able to once again get to his knees, as PJ goes to kick at him again, but Aubrey moves out of the way, and he jumps right up to his feet…

Jake Mercer: AND AUBREY GOES FOR AN ENZIGURI BUT PJ HOLDS ONTO HIS LEG! Aubrey Mack drops down onto the mat below, but PJ doesn’t let go of his leg, as he uses it to pop Aubrey back up to his feet! AND THEN PJ HENDRX GRABS AUBREY INTO A POWERBOMB POSITION… AND HE CONNECTS WITH ‘PLANET ZERO’! THE BRIDGING PACKAGE POWERBOMB CONNECTS!

Stew-O: But no! Aubrey Mack was able to fight out of it! Aubrey pushes Hendrx backward, as he runs the ropes… but PJ catches Aubrey with a calf kick, but you could tell that PJ hurt his knee in the process, but it doesn’t matter to him as PJ Hendrx is able to quickly scurry to the pin, as this could be it for Aubrey Mack right here! PJ Hendrx could get the victory!

OOONNNEEE!!!!!!!!!
TWWWWOOOO!!!!!!!!!

Flannery McCoy: AUBREY MACK POWERS OUT AT TWO! Aubrey wasn’t going to go down just yet, and you can tell that PJ Hendrx is pretty frustrated right now, as he is still continuing to try and get his injured knee into this, but he hasn’t been able to. PJ gets back up to his feet, as his knee is barely holding his weight, as Hendrx drags Aubrey Mack up with him, before connecting with a power slap, and Aubrey is dazed! AND NOW PJ RUNS, AND HE JUMPS ONTO THE MIDDLE ROPE!!!

Jake Mercer: THE PAIN IN PJ’S KNEE CAUSES A SLIGHT HESITATION! PJ HENDRX WAS GOING FOR THE SPRINGBOARD SPEAR BUT HIS KNEE CAUSES HIM TO HESITATE-

Stew-O: AND THAT GAVE AUBREY MACK THE TIME TO RECOVER, AND NOW HE JUMPS ONTO THE MIDDLE ROPE WITH PJ! Hendrx has no idea what he is able to do in this situation, and Aubrey Mack is going to take advantage because of it! AUBREY JUMPS ONTO THE TOP ROPE, BEFORE SPRINGBOARDING WITH A BACKFLIP… AND HE IS ABLE TO GRAB A HOLD OF PJ… PULLING HIM BACK WITH A RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP OFF OF THE MIDDLE ROPE!!! PJ HENDRX MIGHT BE OUT OF IT!

Flannery McCoy: But Aubrey Mack isn’t finished! Aubrey is able to recover and quickly get back up to his feet, as he drags PJ Hendrx up with him, and Aubrey connects with a forearm smash, dropping PJ right down to a knee! PJ looks to be out of it as Aubrey exits onto the apron of the ring, and he might be going for that springboard forearm smash! He is yelling for PJ to get back up to his feet, and PJ is slowly but surely doing exactly that…

Jake Mercer: AND AUBREY MACK SPRINGBOARDS, BEFORE DROPPING PJ HENDRX WITH THE CHIN CHECK! SPRINGBOARD FOREARM SMASH COMPLETELY HITS THE MARK AS PJ IS COMPLETELY OUT OF IT ON THE MAT! AUBREY MAKES HIS WAY TOWARDS PJ HENDRX, AND HE HOOKS THE LEG! THIS HAS GOTTA BE IT! AUBREY HAS WON THIS MATCH!

OOONNNEEE!!!!!!!!!
TWWWWOOOO!!!!!!!!!
TTTHHHHH-

Stew-O: NOOO!!!!! PJ HENDRX IS ABLE TO PICK THE SHOULDER UP AND OFF THE MAT! You can tell that Aubrey Mack is NOT happy about this as he quickly gets back up to his feet, but it looks like he isn’t going to give PJ Hendrx any time to breathe as he stomps right onto that injured knee! Aubrey sees his opportunity right here as he quickly picks PJ back up to his feet, and PJ Hendrx is trying to fight back but Aubrey connects with a big backfist right to the head!

Flannery McCoy: And PJ Hendrx might be completely out of it on his feet! Aubrey Mack sees his opportunity and he backs up, as PJ starts to gain some sense back… but it might be too late as Aubrey Mack spins right around… AND HE CONNECTS WITH 93 ‘TIL INFINITY! THE SPINNING HEEL KICK BY AUBREY MACK! THIS IS OVER! THIS IS OVER!

Jake Mercer: WAIT NO! PJ HENDRX COMPLETELY AVOIDED IT! Aubrey Mack is just now coming to the realization that he didn’t connect with the spinning heel kick, and noticing this, Aubrey turns his attention right back towards PJ, and he swings at him, looking to stop him right in his tracks-

Stew-O: PJ HENDRX CAUGHT AUBREY MACK AND HE LIFTS HIM UP… AND HE CONNECTS WITH PLANET ZERO! THE BRIDGING PACKAGE POWERBOMB CONNECTS AND NOW PJ IS GOING TO GO FOR THE COVER… WAIT NO! HE IS GOING TO ADD INSULT TO INJURY AS HE SLOWLY GETS BACK UP TO HIS FEET… AND HE GRABS A HOLD OF AUBREY, BEFORE TWISTING HIM OVER ONTO HIS STOMACH…

Flannery McCoy: AND PJ LOCK IN ‘PHANTOM’S LOST CRY’!!!! THE KNEELING INVERTED SHARPSHOOTER, AND AUBREY MACK IS TRYING TO HOLD ON! AUBREY IS TRYING TO HOLD ON BUT THE PAIN MIGHT BE TOO MUCH! YOU CAN HEAR THE YELLS OF PJ JUST TELLING AUBREY TO TAP OUT, BUT AUBREY MACK JUST WON’T DIE… BUT IT IS INDEED TOO MUCH! IT WAS TOO MUCH FOR AUBREY AND HE HAS NO CHOICE BUT TO GIVE IN! AUBREY MACK TAPS! PJ HENDRX WINS!

(DING! DING! DING!)

Stephie Love: HERE IS YOUR WINNER… PJ HENDRX!!!!!!!!

(‘DNA’ begins to play throughout the arena once more to a positive reaction of explosive cheers as PJ slowly gets up to his feet, still on a limp from his injured knee, but he gets his arm raised by the referee as he begins to celebrate his victory.)

Stew-O: What a match! Both PJ Hendrx and Aubrey Mack came into this match after the loss they suffered last week in the fatal four-way number one contender’s match looking to win, and in the end, injured knee and all, PJ Hendrx was able to make Aubrey tap out to the Phantom’s Lost Cry to get the very much deserved victory.

(Aubrey Mack would be getting checked on by the referee, as PJ Hendrx would look towards him. He limps over to Aubrey, before putting his fist out, and they fist bump each other before Aubrey would roll out of the ring and walk away. PJ continues to celebrate his victory as the camera fades from there)

(A commercial is shown for ‘The New’ iPhone 14, starring ‘The New’ Jake Smith and ‘The New’ Serenity Valdez.)

(Shortly after the commercial break, the Dynasty broadcast would begin to fade in from the matte black darkness that fills the screen and titantrons, as we return to the ringside area. The camera pans back into the bleachers, a long shot of the stage ensuing, before eventually we hear ‘O Fortuna’ by Carl Orff hit the speakers, the crowd immediately booing, as Madison Kaline’s graphics play on the stage, black and red lights moving around the arena. Madison Kaline would walk out onto the stage with a smirk on her face, though her eyes indicate that she is still a little annoyed over the losses she succumbed to over the past two weeks. Madison Kaline would walk down the stage, dressed in casual jeans and a leather jacket, making her way to the ring, a mic visible in her left hand as she looks to speak her mind.)

Flannery McCoy: And here comes “The Mistress of Death” – Madison Kaline – former Team Captain of the Dynasty Brand Warfare match! When it comes to a Dynasty show, we hadn’t heard much from Madison Kaline, but right now it seems like she is going to speak her mind, perhaps about the past, or the future, if not both at once. I can’t imagine her being too happy about what occurred last week and the week before, however, it certainly is going to be interesting to hear what she has to say!

Jake Mercer: I mean, why should she??? She was supposed to be a fantastic leader that was going to succeed before that loser Bronson Daniels couldn’t pull his own weight! He let his old teammate’s ex body him in the matchup, but it is what it is. I’m sure Madison Kaline is going to address all of this and more, because that’s just what kweens do.

(Madison Kaline would walk over to the steel steps, before walking up one by one by one, eventually making her way up onto the apron, her hand dripped over the top rope. She would pause momentarily as she stares off to the hate-filled crowd, perhaps reasonably hate-filled, before shaking her head. She bends down and places her leg over the middle rope, eventually slipping into the ring, walking into the very center of it. Her theme would slowly begin to fade out to silence, the only sound in the background being the chattering of the crowd, as they await what Madison Kaline has to say. However, she would make them wait. She continues to look around, before smirking to herself as she can easily see that they don’t think too fondly of her. Madison Kaline places her right hand on the left wrist, microphone still in hand, as she awaits for them to settle down. Eventually, they would, giving Madison the time to speak, albeit not that they exactly wanted to – just that the show wouldn’t continue until they did, practically wisening up to Madison’s tactics just for a moment. Madison would raise the microphone to her lips.)

Madison Kaline: First things first, I would like to start with a couple of words about the Territorial Invasion match that happened two weeks ago, just a little insight regarding the Brand Warfare contest. Honestly, while it very clearly didn’t go my way, I’m proud of the team that I managed to create, and I’m happy that I got to watch it sprout from the ground just as I intended, being the Team Captain after all. There is no greater pleasure than watching something that you are the creator of beginning to come into it’s own, like watering a flower in a plant pot – one you planted – it’s beautiful. Despite me being tired of facing the same people over and over again because SOME people don’t like anything new, I still am able to appreciate stuff like this, and I appreciate them as they trusted me to lead them to new heights. And such, I wish them all luck, though it’s doubtful that they don’t believe otherwise. I am one of the more hated wrestlers on this roster, unrightfully, after all. Regardless, I’m proud of the work we all created, and what I lead us to as a team!

(Madison Kaline raises up the microphone in the air, a smile plastered on her face, as the crowd would continue to boo her – forcing the smile to completely dissipate. She sighs, before bringing the microphone back down to her lips.)

Madison Kaline: Now, regardless of that loss, it is quite obviously time for me to move on as the greatest asset this brand has – and just like everybody else would agree, competing at and furthermore succeeding at Justified Reckoning would be a huge step forward and yet another chance to show that I completely stand out from the rest of the pack, among omegas and betas, showing that I am the one and only alpha. I’m adamant about applying myself and going out there on that stage, making a huge impact no matter what the odds and circumstances ahead of me are. After all, I was deserving of- no, I was *more* than deserving of the Undisputed World Heavyweight Interwire Championship opportunity that I found myself competing in just a few months back, and I wouldn’t be the Elitist that paved the way for every of these little pretend-princesses in this company if I didn’t earn just one more. Whether it be for the World Heavyweight, Interwire, or Universal Women’s Championship, I’m going to succeed and I’m going to pick up yet another title in my illustrious career. That victory is going to propel me back into the main event no matter what-

???: Whoa whoa whoa, easy there Maddie!

(Madison Kaline would quickly be cut off from what she’s saying, as a familiar voice is heard throughout the speakers. A portion of the crowd would cheer as they largely dislike Madison Kaline and having her be cut off is almost like paradise on earth. The camera would pan over to the stage as we see Sierra Bradford, sporting a crop top alongside a denim jacket and black ripped jeans, walking onto the stage holding an EAW-branded microphone in her right hand. Madison rolls her eyes, feeling insulted and disgusted that somebody like Sierra would dare interrupt her, as she believes herself to be far above anybody in this company, perhaps having the resume to back those claims up. Sierra would stand atop the ramp, staring down at Madison, running her hands through her newly-dyed pink and white hair. Madison crosses her arms, as Sierra Bradford begins to speak up.)

Sierra Bradford: Y’know, I wasn’t *actually* going to come out here tonight, not until my match later on, but I heard you talking and couldn’t help myself. I keep hearing a lot about “opportunities”, more specifically how people “need” said “opportunities” – and honestly when it comes down to it, nobody needs that more than me, especially not you Ms. Fumbles The Bag. I’m quite frankly the only one here who needs it rather than disguising “want” behind that word, and while you can go on and on and on about what opportunities you’ve gotten and what you’re obviously going to get in the future, each time you’ve been given them, you’ve failed, no doubt about it. Consistently, constantly, everything you’ve done since coming back. There is only one person out here that deserves to bear the weight of these supposed opportunities, and I can assure you she’s not standing in that ring. She’s standing up here, on this stage – it’s me, Madison, right in front of you. Sierra Bradford. All you’re doing here is taking up space, oxygen, and valuable time that I could be inhaling as I look to captivate my return with a victory in an opportunity like the ones you’re pleading for.

(Madison Kaline scratches her head.)

Madison Kaline: Honestly, I don’t even know who you are, but even if I did, I’d completely disagree. It truthfully would not be in your best efforts to dip your toes back into this company by challenging somebody like me. Why not test yourself against the bottom of the barrel and scrape your way to the top like everybody else? It wouldn’t be wise for you to challenge the Mistress of Death so suddenly, and honestly, you will regret it. Don’t get me wrong, little one, I appreciate the fact you’re looking out for yourself, after all that’s what we’re all here for, but there are better ways to do it than tying a noose around your career and kicking the chair for a short drop and sudden stop.

Sierra Bradford: Uh-huh. Whatever floats your boat, Maddie, that’s fine by me. It doesn’t make you special saying stuff like this and it never will, so let me propose something for you. Watch me beat Milli Banks later on tonight, and I’ll be more than happy to show you what I’m all about, and I can assure you that’s going to be the complete opposite of “career suicide” – more like “career murder” as I take your opportunities for my own benefit.

(Madison smirks.)

Madison Kaline: That a challenge, I hear? (She chuckles) That’s fine by me. Sure thing, girlie, I’ll take you at your word. Good luck, you’re going to need it. After all, it’s pretty hard to come back from Grade A-embarrassment.

(Madison winks, as the camera pans back over to Sierra. She smiles, as she obviously looks ecstatic for her challenge to be accepted. We cut back to Madison, who exits the ring, and looks up at Sierra who is standing at the top of the ramp. Slowly but surely, the show would then fade out.)

(A commercial is shown for Paramore’s newly released single ‘This Is Why’ starring Saturday Night Showdown’s Holly Arrow.)

Stephie Love: The following contest is scheduled for… ONE FALL!!!!!

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

(“Quiet as a Rat” by Amigo the Devil hits as a very mixed reaction sounds off in response. The lights go off in the arena as various different images flash across the screen showing the OBA in victory. After the lyrics begin, fire pyrotechnics shoot from out of the stage and Solomon Stane walks out whilst being accompanied by his close ally and tag team partner, Kirk Redwood).

Stephie Love: First, fighting out of The City of Sin.. Being accompanied to the ring by Kirk Redwood and weighing in at 266 pounds.. He is “The Soldier of Sanity”… SOLOMONNN STANNNEEE!!!!

(Solomon Stane makes his way up the steel steps and climbs up onto the top turnbuckle as he looks across the crowd, smiling. He jumps down and makes his way over to his corner, leaning back as he and Kirk Redwood begin to talk with each other).

(As “Quiet as a Rat” fades away, “The Dying Song” by Slipknot blasts throughout the arena. Shane Gates makes his way out onto the stage alone, and he then begins to walk down the ramp with little to no emotion being shown).

Stephie Love: And next, his opponent. Fighting out of Huntington Beach, California.. Weighing in at 213 pounds.. He is “The Natural Born Killer”… SHANNNEEEE GAAATTESSSS!!!!!!

(Shane Gates rolls into the ring from underneath the bottom rope and gets into his corner. Kirk Redwood hops down off of the apron where Solomon Stane stands as Gates and Stane look eye to eye with one another. “The Dying Song” then fades away as the referee signals for the starting bell).

(DING! DING! DING!)

Flannery McCoy: And here we go! Solomon Stane versus Shane Gates live on Dynasty! Two Elitists who are more than ready to take each other down no matter the cost of it. The two men circle around the ring for a moment before then meeting in the centre and locking up with each other! No time is being wasted as their hands now lock in instead, with Solomon Stane beginning to overpower Shane Gates.

Stew-O: Stane is starting to slowly push Shane down and onto the ring canvas with his undeniable power, but Gates responds with some quick thinking as he shifts his right leg over and swipes Solomon off of his feet. Shane Gates now, without letting go of the lock that he has on Solomon’s hand, forces Stane back up to his feet where he then connects with a knee strike straight into the big man’s abdomen. Gates still doesn’t let go now as he maneuvers under the arm of Solomon and lands a huge strike on the shoulder blade, before then pushing him into the corner..

Flannery McCoy: ..AND NOW TRANSITIONING INTO A HUGE GERMAN SUPLEX!! WOW! Solomon Stane just got LAUNCHED from one corner to the other with that German from Shane!! — And he isn’t finished there with his early fury of attack and he jumps on top of Solomon Stane and starts to rain some vicious punches to the face of one half of the Off-Brand Amphetamines! Shane is determined! Solomon, though, uses his in-ring smarts in order to cover up most of the shots and he is able to open up a perfect opportunity to push Gates off of him and away..

Jake Mercer: But just as soon as it seems that Solomon Stane has opened up a pocket of recovery as he gets right back up to a knee, he is instantly clocked RIGHT in the back of the head with a HUGE clothesline by Shane!! This boy is on a roll here — This is what Dynasty needs!! Shane Gates AT his best doing WHAT he does best.. Solomon Stane is able to roll out of the ring now and goes over to Kirk Redwood, perhaps looking for a breather. There is no doubt about it that he has been caught off guard by Shane’s assault of pure determination.

(The referee is at a two-count).

Stew-O: Very true. Shane Gates is enjoying what he just did as he now exits the ring and looks to approach Solomon Stane in order to inflict some more damage – BUT KIRK REDWOOD TELLS SOLOMON TO TURN AROUND AND HE RESPONDS JUST IN TIME WITH A HUGE UPPERCUT TO GATES!! It was a very smart move by Stane to get out of the ring when he did to collect himself, as he now swiftly ducks a punch of Shane Gates.. AND LIFTS HIM UP AND BACK BODY DROPS HIM ONTO THE RING CANVAS!!!

(Kirk Redwood tries to hype up the fans seated at ringside view after the move, only to be met with large boos from the audience).

Jake Mercer: Wow, that was fire.

Flannery McCoy: Shane Gates did NOT see that coming — His spine just went straight into the hardest part of the ring, as Solomon Stane now pushes his limp body underneath the ropes as he also slides in himself. And an instant cover!

OOONNNEEE!!!!!!!!!
TWWWWOOOO!!!!!!!!!

Flannery McCoy: Not even close!! Shane Gates powers out at just around one and a half, one and three quarters, and is able to stay alive against a former EAW Unified Tag Team Champion. Impressive stuff for Gates after taking such a hard bump on the outside just mere moments ago, but that is what these Elitists are built for. Hard fight and competition.

Stew-O: Solomon Stane seems enraged, as most others would be in this exact spot, as he lifts Shane Gates off of the mat by his throat- ONLY TO SMASH THE BACK OF SHANE’s HEAD BACK DOWN ONTO THE CANVAS!!!.. AND A SECOND TIME — NO! A THIRD!! Shane Gates is about to have a concussion after this one is over, and Solomon Stane shoves his opponent’s shoulders to the ground as he looks for the winning cover right here!!

OOONNNEEE!!!!!!!!!
TWWWWOOOO!!!!!!!!!

Jake Mercer: And Shane Gates powers up and out of Solomon’s efforts once again! But as you can see this time around, it was a two-count. The moves and overall pain that Solomon Stane is inflicting upon Shane Gates here is nothing but effective, and he knows this! Solomon Stane grabs the hair of Shane Gates and forces him up to his feet, and he follows up with a huge spinning back fist to the jaw!!

Flannery McCoy: Shane Gates now stumbles back into the top middle ropes, bouncing back towards Solomon Stane’s way.. AND SOLOMON STANE LOOKS FOR THAT HUGE SUPERKICK OF HIS, BUT SHANE GATES DUCKS RIGHT UNDER IT!!… Solomon Stane is lifted up onto Shane Gates’s shoulders, but Shane Gates can’t seem to keep his opponent up as he makes his way over to the nearby corner to place Solomon on the top rope. Incredible strength by Shane, but his back must be in horrible pain after what already transpired and keeping Solomon up would only make it worse.

Stew-O: Shane Gates now turns around and lands a huge elbow strike to Solomon’s jaw, followed up by another one with the opposite elbow right to the stomach! And with that, Shane Gates looks to make his ascent to the top in order to join Stane, where this could end really badly! Shane Gates is able to stand up and get his balance — BUT SOLOMON STANE LANDS A HEADBUTT! AND LOOK AT THIS!

Jake Mercer: HE IS IN PERFECT POSITION FOR AN AVALANCHE POWERBOMB!! ALL THAT HE’S GOTTA DO NOW IS GET THE PROPER FOOTING AND LAUNCH SHANE OFF AND ONTO THE CANVAS. KIRK IS ON THE OUTSIDE TRYING TO GIVE SOME WORDS OF SUPPORT TO SOLOMON… But Shane Gates fights back with some closed fist strikes right to the head! He could have been way worse off right here, and now Gates wraps his arm around the back of Solomon’s head and he could be looking for a Superplex!

Stew-O: Shane Gates now looks to lift the big man up! But Solomon Stane is able to hold his feet in between the top and middle ropes, avoiding some serious damage! Shane tries again but is met with the same exact fate… WHAT?!?! SOLOMON STANE JUST BROKE FREE, AND NOW HD GRABS SHANE GATES AND LIFTS HIM UP… A TOP ROPE MICHINOKU DRIVER?!? WHAT A HUGE TURN AROUND FOR STANE!!!

Jake Mercer: :krabs:

Kirk Redwood: :krabs:

Flannery McCoy: Both Elitists are down and out on the mat after that huge move by Solomon, with Shane Gates clearly out of all possible breath. Solomon Stane now begins to stir and lifts himself up with some help from the ropes as he looks down at Shane Gates who is in a world of his own at this point. Solomon now makes his way over to Shane Gates and begins to lift him up.. He could be looking for the end here and he has Shane Gates in a completely vulnerable state. Stane picks up Gates onto his shoulders and looks to land a powerslam.. BUT GATES SLIPS OUT? Solomon turns around and dashes right at Shane Gates..

Jake Mercer: …AND SHANE GATES HITS A SPINE BUSTER WITH WHAT SEEMS TO BE HIS VERY LAST THREADS OF ENERGY!! SOLOMON STANE POPS UP ON INSTINCT NOW, AND HE RUNS STRAIGHT INTO A SUPERRRRKIIICKK!!!!! THE “KILL SHOT” LANDS SUCCESSFULLY!!!… But Shane Gates can’t capitalize!!! He managed to knock Solomon Stane down, but after that back body drop onto the ring apron and the Michinoku Driver from the top rope, there would be no possible way that Shane Gates could just shake all of that off.. This could very well be a hard turning point for the outcome of this match.

(After a little bit of time, with the referee at the count of five, both Shane Gates and Solomon Stane are able to start moving and get up and onto a knee).

Stew-O: Solomon Stane and Shane Gates seem to have awoken, and despite Shane Gates being the one to have hit the latest move within this match, Stane is the first one up to his feet. Shane Gates isn’t that far behind, but his back is clearly suffering after all that it’s been put through in this match as he turns around and locks eye to dye with Stane.. AND SHANE GATES WITH A HUGE PUNCH!! AND ANOTHER — NO!! It’s now Solomon Stane with a punch of his own!!! But Gates right back at it with his own! These two are now trading blows – Strike after strike!

Flannery McCoy: Solomon Stane looks to change things up now as he goes for a discus clothesline, but Shane Gates ducks – YET IT DOES NOTHING TO HELP HIS CASE AS SOLOMON INSTEAD HITS A DROPKICK!! Shane Gates goes flying back, but he is able to scramble back up to his feet — BUT SOLOMON STANE WAS READY FOR THIS AS HE PICKS GATES UP AND HITS THE “KEY OF SOLOMON” RIGHT IN THE CENTRE OF THE RING!! THE SITOUT FORWARD FIREMAN’S SLAM CONNECTS!!! And a cover!!!

OOONNNEEE!!!!!!!!!
TWWWWOOOO!!!!!!!!!
TTTHHHHHRRRRREEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(DING! DING! DING!)..

(Before Solomon Stane’s theme can even hit on the loudspeakers, Kirk Redwood rushes into the ring and begins to land hard, repeated strikes to the back of Shane Gates head whilst Solomon Stane taunts the crowd. The booing echoes loudly).

Stew-O: Oh come on, this is disgusting. The poor guy just lost the match and his back is probably injured, and the Off-Brand Amphetamines still feel the need to continue the assault?? Just let it go. You already took home the FLIPPING victory..

Flannery McCoy: I don’t think any words of reasoning will stop this attack, Stew… Kirk Redwood now lifts up Shane Gates and is telling Solomon Stane to land some more shots, and — Hey what!??? Kirk Redwood just got pulled from out of the ring?!?.. Who the- HEY, WAIT A MINUTE. THAT’S NICK HART!!! HE’S HERE TO SAVE SHANE GATES AS HE RAINS PUNCHES DOWN ONTO THE FACE OF REDWOOD!!!

Jake Mercer: The Off-Brand Amphetamines just got caught off guard as Nick Hart now sprints into the ring, dodging a clothesline from Solomon Stane in the process.. AND HE HITS A SPEAR TO SOLOMON STANE!! STANE JUST GOT TAKEN THE HECK OUT BY NICK HART!!!.. Kirk Redwood now makes his way into the ring, only to get kicked right in the gut by Hart.. AND HE GETS LIFTED UP AND PLANTED WITH THE PUMPHANDLE DRIVER!!

Stew-O: Nick Hart just saved Shane Gates from a brutal assault that could have been a horrific sight to see! The Off-Brand Amphetamines are able to roll to the outside of the ring as they sit up against the barricade trying to understand what exactly just happened.. Nick Hart then looks down at Shane Gates and offers out his hand..

(Shane Gates looks back up at Nick Hart for a moment and accepts it, as Nick Hart helps to pull him back up to his feet).

Jake Mercer: And Nick Hart helps Shane Gates up, putting his arm around his shoulder in order to help him stand. What a beautiful sight, man. What a fortunate occurrence… What a good guy… OBA could have gotten rid of Shane Gates for good, but Nick Hart was able to come in just in time!!

(The final shot is of The OBA walking back up the ramp, heading to the backstage area, as Shane Gates and Nick Hart stand tall in the middle of the ring).

(A commercial is shown for this week’s episode of Sunday Night Voltage, with the main event being Drake King going up against the Ice Aces’ ARIA!)

( Friday Night Dynasty returns back from commercial break as ‘ Trophies’ by Drake hits, the crowd cheers as Joso walks out from gorilla with the Interwire Championship over his shoulder and a grin on his face. He has is ring gear on for his match against Amir Yusuf later in the night, before he takes his Championship and raises it into the air while heading down the ramp.)

Stephie Love: Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome… the EAW INTERWIRE CHAMPION!!!!!!!!!! JOSO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Stew-O: Last week we heard what Joso had to say about his Anarchy in The Arena performance at Territorial Invasion in a promo. While he’s appreciative of the opportunity, he looks toward the future and that’s the Interwire Championship and the inevitable defense that he’s going to have at Justified Reckoning. Well, someone called first dibs to that, and that was Jay Jerry Johnson.

Flannery McCoy: I can’t blame him much either, Jay has to feel amazing after what he did in the Brand Warfare match. As miniscule as it was, he pinned a former World Champion and a EAW Hall of Famer to eliminate him, and that’s something that you just can look over. But at the same time, Joso did just that, and shrugged his challenge off immediately. Now it seems like he’s going to completely ignore the confrontation tonight and speak his mind in the ring.

Jake Mercer: Ah, the classic CTE shtick. :wow: Did you know Xander Payne used to do that in the indies? Pretty fitting considering how his brain is mush nowadays.

(Joso walks up the steel steps and enters into the ring, making his way over to the edge of the ring and getting a microphone while ‘Trophies’ then comes to a close. He adjusts the Championship over his shoulder, before bringing his microphone up to his mouth and then beginning to speak toward the hyped up Senegal crowd from there.)

Joso: Last week you heard what I had to say about everything going on lately. You can’t help but marvel at the fact that I’ve grown so much in such a short time, while others would take years even coming close to my level. That’s just the perks of being me, and the fact that nobody on this roster has even come close to touching that just proves that even further. So yeah, you know what, I was tooting my own horn. I gave myself my well-deserved pat on the back. But, unfortunately… that was shortlived a I ended up getting rudely interrupted.

( The crowd begins booing as Joso looks around nodding in agreement, seeing that he’s talking about Jay, before placing the microphone back to his face and continuing to speak. )

Joso: Jim John Jenkins thinks I’m going to give him the time of day, but nah, he doesn’t deserve that. Better yet, he ain’t even deserve a slot on the roster, so what makes him think he can even come close to matching me? So I saved him the trouble, and told him to find something better to do with his time, because not only is it not worth it for him, but I’m not tryna give energy to that. So I’m not going to waste my time responding to that tonight, no, instead the reason I’m out here is to paint a pretty vivid picture. A lot of people despite everything I’ve done still ain’t gonna give me the credit that I deserve, and the only thing I can really say is… why? I have rose to prominence in this company in a fraction of the time that it takes most people to. I’ve faced some of the greatest elitists this company and this brand has to offer. What have I not done to win y’all over??? Is it jealously? Is it entitlement? I don’t know, but the one things for sure is the fact that I’ve got some haters out there and they don’t know a thing about what they’re going on about.

( The crowd quiets down as Joso adjusts the Interwire Championship over his shoulder before continuing on. )

Joso: Nobody has proven that they can beat me for this Championship, absolutely nobody. Run down the entire roster top to bottom, they can’t beat me when it’s primetime and I’m in my element. Only competition, and I’ll give him credit, would be Andre Walker, but even then you know the vibes, I beat him. And there ain’t no chance he’s coming back around because for one, he’s too scared, and two, he’s World Heavyweight Champion. So with him being out of the picture and the landscape of Dynasty being what it is… There is no one left… There. Is. No. Competition.

( The crowd begins responds with a mixed reaction that Joso inevitably avoids as he continues on. )

Joso: As conceited as it may sound, that is the unfortunate truth. No one has proven that they can step up to the plate and take this Championship away from me, and as badly as you all may want to pretend that’s not the truth, we all know it is. I am leagues above everyone else, but it’s as I said before, you can pretend as if that’s not the case, but the reality of the matter is that it’s beyond the truth. I am the premiere Champion that this company has to offer, and until you understand that then I just don’t understand what’s going to make you think that anyone, from frankly anywhere, is going to be a perfect fit to go up against me.

( A frenzy of boo’s begins to envelope the crowd as Joso paces around in the ring, his demeanour unchanged before he tunes out the crowd and continues to speak. )

Joso: Y’all really need to get used to this visual, because with how things have played out for me thus far, even with the bumps in the road and whatnot, this is an indication of the future. A future where, the fact of the matter is, you’re going to be seeing me as your Interwire Champion for a very long time. Hey, who knows… I might even go on to break Andre’s record. The sky is the limit for me, and who knows what the future holds? But the one thing that I do know is that there is no one left to oppose me. I’m challenging anyone… anyone in the back that want’s a sh-

( Before Joso can finish his sentence ‘Treasure Sniper’ by Kimito Totani hits as the crowd goes crazy with Jay Jerry Johnson making his way from gorilla and stands atop the entrance ramp with a microphone in hand. Jay has his ring gear on as well seeing as though he has a match against the New Breed Champion, Ruler later on, as he stands on the stage with a skeptical look and slightly shaking his head. He quickly calls for his theme to cut before starting to speak whilst Joso looks on unimpressed. )

Jay Jerry Johnson: I’m sorry, I know you had something to say, but I needed to come out here to clarify something with you. Now, I don’t know if I heard this right, but I believe you said something along the lines of… “there’s no one who can beat you”?

Joso: That’s exactly what I said.

Jay Jerry Johnson: Ah, see that’s what I thought you said. But I find that statement quite funny, Joso, even though it was meant to be as serious as you made it out to be. I get your belief that there’s not much competition when it comes to you and the Interwire Champion, hey, I’ll even give you credit; doing as much as you have in such a short time is something that I’ll give a round of applause for. I look around at the locker room and I don’t see much people matching you, but… when I also look around… I also see myself, and I think that I’m actually the perfect fit for the person that you’re looking for who is capable of defeating you and taking the Interwire Championship.

( Joso stares down as Jay Jerry Johnson for a moment, he looks deadly serious for a moment… before bursting out laughing. Joso sighs as he collects himself before continuing on to speak. )

Joso: Oh man, we really doing this whole thing again??? Let’s get this straight… You? Beating me for the Interwire Championship? You are hilarious, Jay. What makes this even funnier to me is looking back, and seeing how I’ve seen you your entire career up to this point. You have always been nothing more than a comedy act for me, but even after all of that, I can’t really deny that you’ve stepped up your game this Season. Yeah you’ve put in the work, but as time has shown, it hasn’t stopped you from making a fool of yourself on multiple occasions. So answer me this, Jay… why the hell are you out here interrupting me again?

Jay Jerry Johnson: Do we really have to go over this again? I said it last week, I said it a few seconds ago, and I’ll say it again, I want what you have. Hell, why wouldn’t anyone want what you have? That Interwire Championship you have draped around your shoulder would look even better strapped around my waist, and as much as you may think I don’t have the fundamentals to take it from you, you’ll be surprised to know that what I offer once I step into the ring will be too much to handle for you.. And unfortunately for you— this isn’t a joke. I am dead serious.

( Joso begins to smirk once more before the look on his face turns to a more serious look as he continues speaking. )

Joso: No, Jay. You don’t seem to understand how things work around here. And that’s fine. In fact I don’t even expect a serial loser like you to grasp the concept of how these things work in the first place. But nonetheless I understand what you’re trying to do, and a part of me actually respects it. But let’s be realistic here. You aren’t worth my time, and you definitely aren’t worth the effort. So let’s stop beating around the bush. You have nothing of value or importance to say to me. So stop wasting my time, and just shut up and go back to doing what you do best and enjoy the food in catering or something– because you are not— and I mean this with every fiber of my being— YOU ARE NOT taking this championship from me. And even beyond that, you’re not getting an opportunity to begin with.

( The crowd begins to boo Joso as Jay Jerry Johnson ponders what he just heard before he begins walking down the entrance ramp and entering the ring to which Joso seems unphased. )

Jay Jerry Johnson: Now who’s the comedian, Joso? You call me a serial loser, but you’re still afraid to put your championship on the line against me? You beg for competition and a challenge, and when one arises, you’d rather tuck your tail and run? Is that the type of champion you want to be, Joso? Because if that’s the case then you’re absolutely right about everything you said before. It’s easy to break records and remain champion when you never actually defend your title. So that’s what I’m out here to ask of you Joso, be the champion you pretend to be and face me for your Interwire Championship at Justified Reckoning. I mean… if you are as you claim to be, then this should be no issue.

(The look on Joso face turns to a more bitter one as he and Jay Jerry Johnson get face to face before Joso lifts up the microphone to respond. )

Joso: You know what Jay, I was trying to do you a favor. You’ve gone through so much embarrassment over the course of your career, the absolute last thing I wanted to do was give you another reason to question retirement. But you pushed me to this point. You want a match at Justified Reckoning? You got it. It’s your funeral. But don’t say I didn’t try to spare you.

( Joso drops the microphone on the ground and pushes past Jay Jerry Johnson before exiting the ring. As the camera pans back to the ring a grin begins to form on the face of Jay Jerry Johnson who begins taunting Joso as he walks up the ramp and back through gorilla. Jay shakes it off, realizing that despite having a match confirmed for Justified Reckoning, he has a match to prepare for coming up next against Ruler. Jay takes off his entrance attire and begins to get ready inside the ring while Friday Night Dynasty fades to a quick commercial break. )

(A commercial is shown for ‘Marvel Studios’ Special Presentation: Werewolf By Night’, streaming exclusively on Disney+ on October 7th, 2022.)

(“Sweet Caroline” by Neil Diamond plays as Caroline steps out. The crowd cheers for her, and she gives a warm smile acknowledging everyone. As she heads down to the ringside area, she gives a few fans high-fives and even stops to take a quick picture with a young fan in attendance. She’s as bright and bubbly as ever. She takes a seat close by the ring, her smile never fading.)

Stew-O: And here is “Sweet” Caroline, who is at ringside to watch the upcoming contest between Jay Jerry Johnson and the man she will be competing against for the New Breed Championship, Ruler.

Jake Mercer: Well, she seems as happy as ever, but she’s probably out here to scout Ruler out and study up on him as much as possible leading up to their match. It’s smart, sound strategy, admittedly. Of course, though, the flipside is that she could’ve came out here to try and throw Ruler off of his game!

Flannery McCoy: And why exactly would someone like Caroline want to do that?

Jake Mercer: I don’t know! You know how all these supposed ‘nice’ girls can be. They all have a secret sneaky side to them.

Flannery McCoy: Yeah, I seriously doubt Caroline would stoop down low to distract Ruler or anyone for that matter. She’s a by-the-books competitor and if she wants to prove that she’s better than someone she’ll wait to do so inside the ring.

(The camera goes to show the inside of the ring where Jay Jerry Johnson is seen preparing for his match. Obviously he’s coming off his encounter before the commercial break with Joso, where he got a Interwire Championship match at Justified Reckoning. Jay could not be more ready while Stephie Love is seen at ringside beginning to speak.)

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

Stephie Love: Already in the ring, from Yokohama, Japan, weighing in at 206 pounds… he is the “Charismatic Artist”, JAAAAAAAYYY JERRRRRRRY JOOOOOHNSOOOOOON!

Stew-O: Jay Jerry Johnson gave a valiant effort against Amir Yusuf last week, but he came up short. That would be his fifth loss in a row, and this week is practically a do-or-die match for him.

Jake Mercer: At this rate, no more excuses can be made. We see Jay have moments of brilliance but so far he hasn’t been able to connect them altogether into meaningful wins. He’s looking to prove that he deserves the Interwire Championship shot he was granted. Maybe tonight will be the night where he accomplishes the unexpected, but given who he’s facing, that’s going to be a tall task to handle.

Flannery McCoy: It probably doesn’t help that he’s going against a man that not only beat him already but is currently the reigning New Breed Champion. Speaking of which…

(As the music fades, ‘Prices’ by Lil Uzi Vert plays. The lights grow dim before a spotlight lands in the middle of the stage. Standing within it is Ruler. The New Breed Championship glistens around his waist as he stands there, eyes locked on the ring. He stalks down the ramp, hands remaining on that prized possession of his.)

Stephie Love: And introducing his opponent, from the Reserve… weighing in at 220 pounds… he is the New Breed Champion, RUUUUUUUUUUUULEEEEEERRRR!

Stew-O: To say that Ruler has been a role would be an understatement. He has ascended quickly here in EAW since joining us earlier this year and after only six months, he has won his first championship. The New Breed Championship means a lot to him as he sees himself as the potential revolutionizer for the division. Now, he intends on making sure that any potential challenger he faces won’t come close to taking the title away from him.

Jake Mercer: Ruler has proven himself to be one of the best Elitists in not just Dynasty, but EAW period. And if anyone disagrees, well, Ruler will go out of his way to make sure you look foolish for ever thinking otherwise.

Flannery McCoy: This match is important here for both Elitists. Jay needs to match to ensure that he can get his foot back on the right track while Ruler is looking to cement his dominance over here on Dynasty and especially so leading up to his title bout against Caroline. As we get closer to Justified Reckoning, momentum is going to matter a lot, regardless of an Elitist’s standing.

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Stew-O: Both men meet in the center of the ring. A collar-and-elbow tie-up ensues, and we see Jay trying to get an advantage early on by focusing on Ruler’s arm and getting a hold locked in. Ruler remains standing, still calm as she works to find a way out. He spins and turns the arm lock back onto Jay who drops to a knee. Johnson gets up and rolls forward, getting on his back. He uses his foot to break up the arm lock. The shift in weight brings Ruler slightly down, allowing Jay to cinch in the headlock. A quick and impressive counter on his part.

Jake Mercer: Submission and holds are his bread and butter. Once again, Jay is able to maintain some form of control. Ruler gets his arms around him and pushes him back into the ropes. He goes to push Jay off of him with a running start, but he gets stopped right in the middle! Jay drops his weight down onto one knee, tightening that side hidelock! Ruler tries to go to the opposite ropes and do the same thing to get lucky, but once again, Triple J remains stuck on him like a moth to a flame! Ruler doesn’t seem to be frustrated, but it’s clear he’s trying to work out a means for escape.

Flannery McCoy: Both men get back to their feet, and this time the New Breed Champion gets his arms around Johnson. He sends an elbow right into his side! Then another one! Really focusing with the tip of the elbow to strike right at the liver of Jay Jerry Johnson! Jay flinches, but he isn’t letting go! Ruler uses all of his strength to life him up for a back suplex! Oh, but Jay lands right on his feet! He’s able to remain stand– WAIT! THE REVOLUTIONZIER! RULER SPINS AND LIFTS HIS HEEL UP TO STRIKE JOHNSON WITH THE PATENTED SPINNING BACK… heel… kick?

Stew-O: Jay covers up, expecting the worst, but Ruler doesn’t hit him with it! A taunting smirk spreads across his face! Jay looks and realizes what he did. Ruler brings two of his fingers together, as if to say that he was this close to putting him away for good!

Jake Mercer: Talk about mind games. Ruler did say that he was going to give Jay a chance to have a good showing against him. Though, I feel like he’s just playing with him like an owner would with their pet. He’s gonna be the one to dictate whether or not Jay can even come close to him inside that ring.

Flannery McCoy: Yeah, but Ruler may want to be careful. He has a habit sometimes of thinking he’s bigger than his opponent, and in a place like EAW where anything can happen, that bit of egoism can really come back to bite him.

Stew-O: Both Elitists circle around the ring, eyeing each other down. Jay undoubtedly now is on the edge, watching to see if his opposition will pull any unexpected tricks on him. They meet up once again, arms locked, but Ruler ducks down and goes behind Jay. Arms around the waist, he picks Johnson up and slams him down into the mat before spinning over and getting a front-facing headlock in. Jay has his palms agains the canvas, trying to get up. But Ruler is right on top of him as he sends an elbow down onto the back of Johnson! Ruler reinforces his grip and rolls both himself and Johnson over. With the hold clinched in tight, he sends a knee into Jay’s head! And another one! Finally, he relents and gets him back on his feet, but he still has the hold on! Ruler lifts him up and sends Jay’s back into the ring mat with an interesting suplex variant! Ruler bridges as Jay’s shoulders are pressed down!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE–

Jake Mercer: And Jay Jerrry Johnson kicks out! However, Ruler STILL isn’t letting go of that lock! They get up and Ruler goes to town with some stiff, close-contact knee strikes. Jay tries to the best of his abilities to use his arms to block the knees, but Ruler is able to get a few in there! Finally, he let’s go of him. Ruler takes Jay by the wrist and irish whips him into the corner. Jay’s back hits the turnbuckles as he finds himself in a precarious situation! Ruler charges right at him–

Flannery McCoy: But Jay slips out onto the apron through the ropes! Ruler collides with the corner! He steps out, and there goes Johnson as he gets back in and runs for the opposite set of ropes! He comes right at Ruler, looking to take him off his feet with a forearm smash–

Stew-O: Ruler ducks! Jay comes back on the rebound and Ruler raises his foot up, looking to hit him with a roundhouse! Jay slides underneath the leg and pops back up! He sends a punch Ruler’s way, but that gets blocked. Ruler reciprocates with one his own– NO! Jay is able to scout that out and block it in his own right! Jay SLAPS Ruler across the chest and hits him in the gut with a quick side kick! He takes him down with a snapmare and gets Ruler in a seated position. He goes and hits the ropes! Now he’s going to take him out with a running soccer kick to the head–

Jake Mercer: RULER CATCHES IT! He manages to grab that swinging leg and stands up. With the leg caught, he brings Jay closer and sends him over his head with the leg-trapped suplex! We get a quick pin attempt!


ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE–

Flannery McCoy: But once again, Jay kicks out! Ruler stays on the attack and brings down a few stomps onto him! Now, he gets Johnson back up to his feet as he throws in a few forearm shots his way. He goes for the ropes and comes back with a clothesline! No! Jay Jerry Johnson is able to jump up with a knee strike from out of nowhere! Ruler is stunned as he turns around from the impact of the strike! From behind, Jay grabs his arm and turns him around with the ripcord, and BANG! A sickening headbutt finds its way to Ruler! The Monarch of Agony is in trouble as Jay fires at him with a slap to the chest, a couple of backhand slaps to the face, and brings it all home with a discus elbow smash! The Jerrination lands flushed and Ruler is down! Jay goes for the ropes and comes back down with a running senton! Jay is on fire now! He gets up as Ruler flips over, trying to gain some distance, but Jay comes up in the air and DROPS BOTH OF HIS FEET DOWN ONTO THE BACK OF RULER’S HEAD! He goes for a pin!


ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE–

Stew-O: Ruler kicks out! The fans are cheering and even Caroline is giving Johnson his props! Jay has been able to turn the tides of this match into his favor yet again.

Jake Mercer: I have to say, despite all of the losses, Jay Jerry Johnson have been able to give it his all with each consecutive match. This is a far cry from the first go around he had with Ruler. Still, will this be enough for him to win and not only bounce back, but be able to beat a champion in Ruler here tonight?

Flannery McCoy: Let’s not write him off completely. Yes, Jay Jerry Johnson has had many issues since the start of this season, but he’s really working hard towards upping his game. Ruler is great and has proven himself to be one of the biggest threats here on Dynasty, but Jay is showing tonight that he really wants to win this!

Stew-O: Jay looks to be in the driver seat now as he takes Ruler up to his feet and whips him into the corner. However, Ruler doesn’t get the chance to breathe as Jay is right there, coming in with a european uppercut! Jay uses his strength to bring Ruler to the top tunbuckle. He climbs up and stands his opponent up. This is a high-risk zone he’s entered! He’s setting him up for the suplex!

Jake Merer: But look! Ruler is throwing body shots right at him! He was able to refocus and recognize where he’s at! Jay let’s go and drops down to the middle corner ropes as he tends to his midsection. However, Ruler is just clubbing at him down! His fists comes down on the back of Johnson’s head over and over again! Jay hunches! Ruler takes him into a powebomb position and… oh my god… HE GETS HIM UP! JAY HAS NOWHERE TO GO! RULER TAKES A LEAP AND HE JUST STRAIGHT UP PLUNGES JOHNSON INTO THE MAT WITH A THUNDEROUS AVALANCHE POWERBOMB! JAY IS DOWN!

Flannery McCoy: It was a risk, and it paid off but not for Jay Jerry Johnson! Talk about shifting momentum out of the blue! However, that’s just the sort of competitor Ruler is. Just when you thought you’re comfortable and have things under control, he comes out of nowhere and catches you off guard! Ruler looks pleased at the results as she goes to hook the leg as he coves Jay!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

TWOOO–

Stew-O: But Jay is able to get his shoulder up! Despite the unexpected reversal, he’s still in this match! Ruler looks right down at him and shakes his head! He grabs a fistful of Jay’s hair and forces him up to his feet. He drives his knee right into the gut! Jay hunches over, but Ruler presses on and keeps the pressure up with a side kick! There’s the spinning backfist straight into Johnson’s face! He’s moving lightning quick as he hits a kick to the back of the knee and finishes off everything with a viscous knee strike to the jaw of Jay Jerry Johnson! Johnson collapses to the ground after the blitzed with the Dark Fury combination. It’s as if Ruler is paying him back for earlier!

Jake Mercer: Anything you can do, I can do better, he’s saying. Forget about giving Jay the chance to fight back. Now, he’s just looking to try and completely upstage him! Ruler gets Jay up with a gutwrench and brings him down with ANOTHER powerbomb! He rolls over into the jacknife pin attempt!


ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO–

Flannery McCoy: Kickout! Ruler stands right up as Jay gets to his knees and HE GETS HIT FROM BEHIND WITH A KICK TO THE BACK OF HIS HEAD! I think just about everyone in the arena cringed at that shot! Even Caroline looks to be in shock.

Jake Mercer: She’s getting a full presentation on just how ruthless and unrelenting the man that’s holding the title she wants can be. Once Justified Recokoning comes around, she better be careful, because that could easily be her when she squares up against HIM!

Stew-O: Ruler grabs Jay roughly and gets him up for a bodyslam. He looks at the corner and goes to it, but not before he literally walks right on top of Jay to get there! The fans boo, but Ruler remains stone-faced as he scales all the way to the top. Jay is out in the center of the ring, back on the mat. He’s able to stir a little, but he’s still in grave danger now as Ruler is settled at the top. He jumps into the air and flips back, going for the moonsault! AND IT LANDS! A sick grin rests on his face as she goes for the cover.

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO–

Flannery McCoy: Ruler breaks the pin and grabs Jay by the hair! The crowd boos even more! He’s not even paying attention to them, though. His eyes are set right on Caroline!

Ruler: (off-mic) Anything you can do, I can do better, sweetheart. You’re done for once we meet.

Caroline: (off-mic) If you say so. :eyeroll:

Stew-O: We talked about the mental tactics Ruler implemented earlier with Jay, but he seems to be doing the same thing with the person he’s set to go up against for the New Breed Championship in just a month’s time.

Jake Mercer: He definitely wants to send a clear-cut message to Caroline with this match. Now, he gets Jay up who clearly still looks dazed. Ruler gives him a few patronizing pats to the cheek before getting his arm around his head and DRIVING HIM DOWN WITH THE EVENFLOW DDT! THE WILL OF NICHOLAS CONNECTS! JAY IS LIMP AS HE GETS ROLLED OVER AND COVERED!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

TH–

Flannery McCoy: BUT HE KICKS OUT! HE GOT HIS SHOULDER UP JUST BARELY, BUT IT’S ENOUGH TO BREAK OUT OF THE PIN! THE CROWD IS ROARING! RULER LOOKS A BIT DUMBFOUNDED!

Stew-O: Jay Jerry Johnson has been able to keep this match alive going for himself, but how much further can he go? Ruler now is muttering to himself as he looks down at Jay with nothing but utter contempt and disgust. He mounts Jay and sends a barrage of strikes and punches down onto him. The referee admonishes Ruler as Jay can barely defend himself here! However, Ruler transitions right into a triangle chokehold! Could we see a submission here?!

Jake Mercer: It’s been all Ruler these past few minutes and the visciousness of his offense hasnt softened. Jay is struggling as he trapped in this hold! He’s using his free hand to try and reach out for the ropes, but Ruler isn’t having any of it! He just kicks down on the hand and that causes Jay to pull it back away from him! This is bad!

Flannery McCoy: Jay is usually sharp when it comes to submissions, but right now he finds himself on the verge of tapping out! His hand goes up into the air! Oh my god! Is he going to give up here?!

Stew-O: Jay brings his hand down– BUT HE JUST STOPS SHORT OF HAVING IT HIT THE MAT! AS MUCH AS HE’S IN PAIN, AS MUCH AS HIS HAND IS TREMBLING, HE REFUSES TO GIVE UP! HE YELLS AND SLOWLY FORCES HIS WAY TO HIS KNEES! HE BALLS HIS HAND UP AND BRINGS IT DOWN ONTO THE RULER! RULER LET’S GO! HE’S HOLDING ONTO HIS RIGHT EYE! I THINK JAY MIGHT’VE HIT HIM THERE! JAY COLLAPSES, BUT AT LEAST HE’S ABLE TO GET A BIT OF BREATHING ROOM!

Jake Mercer: Yeah, but he might want to hurry up and take in as much air as he can, because Ruler is up and he looks ticked off! Ruler comes in with a big boot– NO! Jay falls back to avoid it! Ruler stomps down, but his foot meets nothing but the canvas as Johnson rolls out of the way! Ruler stalks him as Jay backs up. However, Jay sweeps at the feet and Ruler drops down to a seated position. Jay gets up and NAILS HIM WITH A RUNNING KNEE! Ruler falls down and Jay Jerry Johnson stands up, shaking off the pain from his hand!

Flannery McCoy: Jay’s eyes are laser focused on Ruler as he is slow to his feet. He’s up now, but Jay is right there and gets him up onto his shoulders! Jay readies himself and DRIVES RULER DOWN WITH THE MEDIUM PITFALL! THE BURNING HAMMER PUTS RULER DOWN RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING! JAY QUICKLY GOES FOR THE COVER!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

THR–

Stew-O: KICKOUT FROM RULER! JAY WAS ABLE TO GET A RALLY GOING, BUT IT WASN’T ENOUGH TO PUT THE NEW BREED CHAMPION AWAY! SO CLOSE! JAY DROPS TO HIS KNEES AS HE COVERS HIS HEAD, TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT HE CAN DO TO BEAT RULER!

Jake Mercer: At this point, it’s either man’s game. Both are spent and both have come close to putting the othe one away. At this stage, it’s going to come down to who wants this more; who has enough gas in the tank to land that last, devastating blow to secure the win! If Jay wants it to be him, then he better hurry up and not get frustrated! As agonizing as it may be, he’s got to kick into the next gear and keep this momentum up!

Flannery McCoy: You’re absolutely right, Jake, and I think Jay realizes this! He looks to Ruler and goes to trap one of his arms in between his legs! Now he’s got the other one behind his hamstring! I think we all know where this is going–

Stew-O: And so too does Ruler, because he’s kicking right at Jay’s head as he went to try and get a hold of his leg! He’s firing off, trying to get Jay to back off! Eventually, he does! The Jerry Special ‘96 doesn’t come to fruition! Jay goes to his feet and tries to shake off the pain as Ruler climbs back up to his feet. Jay looks at him and meets him with a backhanded chop! Ruler takes the chop, gritting his teeth before answering with one of his own! Jay’s chest lights up as that becomes red! Jay comes in with a headbutt and that forces Ruler back into the ropes! BUT RULER STRIKES HIM WITH A HEADBUTT RIGHT BACK AS HE COMES BACK FROM THE REBOUND! BOTH MEN ALMOST CRUMPLE DOWN TO THEIR KNEES, BUT THEY’RE STANDING, FOREHEAD AGAINST FOREHEAD AS THEY STARE DAGGERS INTO EACH OTHER!

Jake Mercer: Ruler snarls and grabs Jay by the head before unleashing a series of elbows and punches onto him! He races for the ropes, but Jay comes in and catches him with a knee to te gut! Ruler bends over as he holds onto his stomach. Jay backs up and runs to the opposite set of ropes, but right there is Ruler who finds a second wind and hits him right back with a knee of his own! Jay winces in pain! Ruler takes a few steps back and points at Jay! He runs at him, but Johnson CATCHES HIM AT THE LAST SECOND WITH AN ENZUGIRI! AND THEN THE BICYCLE KICK! RULER FALLS TO ONE KNEE! JAY BOUNCES ON HIS FEET AND RUNS RIGHT AT HIM, GOING FOR THE FULL MOON FLASHER–

Flannery McCoy: BLACK MIST! RULER SPRAYED IT ALL OVER HIS FACE! JAY IS CAUGHT BY IT AND STUMBLES AROUND, YELLING AS HE TRIES TO WIPE ALL OF IT OFF OF HIS FACE! AND RIGHT AS HE COMES AROUND, RULER GRABS HIM INTO POSITION FOR THE BLOODRAYNE MAKER!! AND IT HE GETS IT! RULER GETS THE COVER ON JAY!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE–

Caroline: (off-mic) Wait, stop! His foot is on the rope!

Stew-O: WAIT! THE REFEREE STOPS TO LOOK AT WHERE CAROLINE IS POINTING AT! SURE ENOUGH, JAY JERRY JOHNSON’S FOOT IS ON THE BOTTOM ROPE! THE REF SEES IT AND CALLS OFF THE PIN ATTEMPT! JUST AS SOON AS WE THOUGHT WERE ABOUT TO GET A WINNER!

Jake Mercer: I know you’re lying.

Flannery McCoy: Nope, not at all! Thanks to Caroline, the referee is able to see that his Jay’s foot was indeed on the rope! However, we don’t know if it was there because of Jay putting it there deliberately or if it was accidental due to how close Ruler had him to it!

Stew-O: The angle from where we’re at made it hard to see definitively, but regardless, this match is still ongoing! However, Ruler’s eyes focus on Caroline!

Ruler: (off-mic) What do you think you’re doing?

Caroline: (off-mic) Nothing! I just want this match to be a fair one! His foot was on the rope!


Ruler: (off-mic) Oh, so are you looking to apply as a referee now once I beat you and retain my title?

Caroline: (off-mic) What? No! I’m just saying that the win wouldn’t have been a fair one if the referee continued on! Besides, wouldn’t you prefer to win cleanly instead of people potentially picking up on Jay’s foot was on the rope?

Ruler: (off-mic) … Just get out of here.

Caroline: (off-mic) What? Why?

Ruler: (off-mic) Get. Out. Now.

Stew-O: And Caroline raises her hands, as if to say that isn’t trying to cause any problems. Still, she goes ahead and walks away, making her way towards the ramp. Ruler shakes his head and mumbles underneath his breath, but with Caroline out of the way he can regain his focus–

Flannery McCoy: OH MY GOD! JAY JERRY JOHNSON FROM OUT OF NOWHERE TRAPS RULER’S ARM AND TAKES HIM DOWN INTO THE DEATH OF A WINGMAN! HE’S GOT THE PIN! COULD THIS BE IT?!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)


Jake Mercer: WHAT?!?!?!

(‘Treasure Sniper’ plays as Jay Jerry Johnson rolls out of the ring. He smiles, and the referee follows after him to raise his hand in victory. Meanwhile, Ruler is on his knees, disbelief coloring his eyes. A blink brings him back down to the real world, and what replaces his shock is a quiet sort of fury brewing within him.)

Stew-O: He did it! Jay Jerry Johnson was able to pin Ruler and pick up a much needed win here tonight! After five consecutive loses, Jay has not only snapped his losing streak, but did so against the current New Breed Champion!

Jake Mercer: No way. I-I mean, wow. How did that even happen? Caroline and Ruler were just bickering for a moment and just like that, Jay swooped in and stole the win!

Flannery McCoy: Stole? Now, that isn’t fair to say, Jake. Can you blame him for taking the opportunity to go for a quick pin against Ruler? Had the match gone on any longer, he likely wouldn’t have had the strength left to face off against him. Not to mention that Ruler got distracted. Any other Elitist in his position would’ve done the same thing.

Jake Mercer: Oh my god. Caroline really inadvertently helped him tonight. I feel like I’m watching the 2020 NBA Bubble all over again! A fraudulent win in my books!

Stew-O: Well, regardless of how it was done, Jay Jerry Johnson is the winner here tonight. Not only can he rest easy knowing that he was able to get back on the right course in his career, but he did so against a very game Ruler here tonight.

(Caroline watches on as Jay celebrates and leaves. She stands on the ramp for a moment, looking back at Ruler who still remains in the center of the ring. He eyes her down and motions that she has a target on her back courtesy of him. However, Caroline gives an innocent shrug and a smile as she walks up the stage and exits. The cameras focus on Ruler’s face as we transition over to a brief commercial break.)

(A commercial is shown for the Sunday Night Voltage exclusive Free-Per-View, Wicked Games, featuring the EAW World Champion Minerva and the EAW Hardcore Champion Charlie Marr.)

(As the commercial cuts back to Dynasty, the camera panned to the ring as the crowd inside the Dakar Arena were out of their seats excited for what was to come next. ‘Demeanor’ by Pop Smoke hit the speakers and the crowd died down with excitement and exchanged their ecstatic behavior for boos as they began to rain them down onto the new entering Serenity Valdez from the titantrons entrance. A smirk on Serenity’s face and her Specialist’s Championship hanging on her shoulder as she made strides down to the ring, wasting little time as she walked up the steel steps, onto the apron, and through the middle rope to enter the ring.)

Stephie Love: And coming down to the ring, from Tijuana, Mexico… she is the EAW SPECIALIST’S CHAMPION… SERENITY VALDEZZZZ!!

Stew-O: Serenity Valdez making her way to address the EAW World tonight surely following the announcement of Milli Banks becoming her new challenger for that Specialist’s Championship at Justified Reckoning on the 22nd of October in the Sparks Arena of New Zealand, which tickets are on sale right now for our overseas fans to watch what is already seeming to be an amazing Free-Per-View showing from this Dynasty exclusive event!

Flannery McCoy: I mean you could only assume Serenity has some choice words for Milli Banks following the altercations they’ve had previous, and also including the sudden promotional video she let out last night airing out all of her feelings about how she’s felt about her Specialist’s Championship reign and if that video showed anything? She’s unhappy with her current situation and this could either be a huge step forward in the Serenity Valdez era; or a bit of a detriment to her morale in front of such a big title defense!

( Serenity Valdez grabs a microphone from an EAW Personnel at ringside before standing in the middle of the ring, adjusting the title on her shoulder as she began to speak. )

Serenity Valdez: See, here’s where I could say I might have messed up with spilling my guts last night in that promotional video; because most of what I said there I could repeat here in heavy excess, I could talk about how disappointing Tyrone Montogomery has been with the handling of my career, I could talk about how insignificant Milli Banks is to me and my title reign… It’s all just a mushed arc in my head now, and quite frankly? You know what guys, I think I’m just going to go.

( Serenity says, a frown on her face as she sighs, looking down as she trots towards the apron of the ring, the crowd ecstatic as they chanted ‘YES! YES! YES!’ and the beginnings of the ‘Na Na Na Na, Hey Hey Hey, Goodbye’ Chorus as Serenity Valdez got onto the opposing side of the apron, a shot of her face being shown on the camera with a pensive look as she took a moment to lapse across the arena of fans who were all over the moon of her decision to leave before suddenly a huge grin began forming on her face, Serenity beginning to cackle loudly as the crowd began noticing the mood shift, starting to overload on boo’s again. )

Serenity Valdez: JUST KIDDING! YOU THOUGHT I WAS GOING TO TAKE AWAY THIS MOMENT FROM MYSELF?! YA DAMN WRONG, I’M GOING TO BE OUT HERE FOR AS MUCH TIME AS I NEED TO – AS LONG AS I WANT!

(Serenity said before re-entering the ring, taking a victory lap around the ring as the crowd began to shut down from their chants and cheers of Serenity Valdez’s quick exit, or the exit they thought they were promised as Serenity paced around the ring.)

Serenity Valdez: Guys guys guys, look – how could I ever; and I mean EVER leave this ring without pointing out to the world that in four days, FOUR days from now I will have reached the milestone of 100 Days as Specialist’s Champion?! Look, I know I was a bit of a downer last night, but nevertheless, this is just another ACCOMPLISHMENT under my belt and another bump up in the charts of becoming the BEST Specialist’s Champion of all damn TIME, and look – I was trying to get the Champagne out here along with some lights and balloons but as I said before; this company simply does not give enough of a damn about its superstars, but I will make do with this treatment for now because post Justified Reckoning? This WILL NEVER happen again, I will destroy Milli Banks and the foundation she’s building for herself into absolute smithereens to the point that looking past me isn’t an option anymore, rather, everything that happens on Dynasty will go THROUGH me; it’s just the Serenity Valdez effect.

Serenity Valdez: So I think it’s time that we give me some praise as a UNIT; as fans of this business, I think what we all need right now? Is a loud, resounding, You Deserve It chant! How about it guys? C’mon, I deserve it! I deserve it! I deserve it – C’mon get the claps going and everything, CELEBRATE ME! BAHAHAHAHA!

( The crowd booed massively, Serenity getting huge heat as the whole arena was screaming hate speech and slandering words towards her, though the clear smile on her face showed her care for all of the disrespect, or rather, the lack thereof. )

Serenity Valdez: Sorry, I forget I can’t not count on you all to do anything but be incompetent – that’s MY bad guys, MY bad! But seriously, this is a week for me, a week of Valdez; a moment of celebration amongst many to come from each milestone and accolade I get, and while you all might not appreciate that fact being true; Success is a part of one baby, and I am DEFINITELY partying like there is no tomorrow! But alas, all of this ties into one thing – doesn’t it? Yes, I suppose I can’t just skim over her as much as I want to, I mean it’s what I am advertised to do here tonight; talk about the one and only, Flavor of the Month, Milli Banks.

( The crowd popped slightly at the mention of her name, somewhat behind Milli Banks in the hope of her being the one to dethrone Serenity Valdez’s Specialist’s Championship reign.)

Serenity Valdez: Yeah yeah, you all like her right? Figures, that’s telling really; the same people who cheer on the Ice Aces enjoy Milli Banks? I mean the story writes itself. Look, I get it; I can see the appeal in Milli Banks – seriously, I really do! Because you want to know something, you want to know who Milli Banks reminds me of, Senegal? Well, I’ll tell you what, Milli Banks reminds me of myself quite frankly. To clarify, not the Serenity Valdez of today because NOBODY comes close to touching the Elitist that I am currently, rather, she reminds me of the Serenity Valdez of old – the Serenity Valdez who competed in the Extreme Elimination Chamber on her first month of employment to EAW, the spunk and confidence radiating off her skin – false confidence that is, truly reminds me of how I was being so naive to jump into a moment too big for someone so green to what real competition is.

Serenity Valdez: See, when I competed in that Universal Championship Match in the Extreme Elimination Chamber, I thought I was coming into EAW with a free ride to Championship gold; I felt like I just struck a lottery win of opportunities and that I was in for the biggest debut year of all time, and that mindset was kept with me from the announcement of my entry into the match… All the way to the point where I got dropped in my head and eliminated rather quickly if I must say, see, I can ADMIT to my misdoings and I can also admit to how beneficial that moment has been to me in the long run of all of this; how that moment set my trajectory to where I am right now, to how I am Specialist’s Champion in THIS very moment! THAT is what got me here, failure as I began to figure out what type of Elitist I was, and Ladies and Gentleman now I get to see the night and day of that process – because THAT is what Milli Banks is about to go through.

Serenity Valdez: Milli Banks needs me, in fact, Milli Banks should thank me for taking her on rather than demand a new opponent from Tyrone – but I am going to do her the favor of keeping her in this position so she could turn from the Flavor of the Month that she is now and begin the process of rebuilding into the star I’m sure she wants to be, the teach now officially becoming the student and Serenity Valdez being able to humble a young Elitist so they could be BETTER, I will make Milli Banks BETTER; I will make her flourish and I can have a heavy sliver of credit in any accomplishment she makes. Any title win? Serenity Valdez. Any Marquee Match? Serenity Valdez. Cash in the Vault, Grand Rampage – Hall of Fame? Serenity Valdez caused all of that. Hell, if it comes down to it I’ll be the one to induct her because I SEE some potential in her currently laughable demeanor, I see a glimmer of a spark but it’s up to her to grant me permission to use that spark and make it a gleam so bright she might amount close to who I am currently, not surpass it, but come close enough to be applauded by the world.

Serenity Valdez: Milli Banks will learn a lot from me come Justified Reckoning, she will put up one hell of a fight from someone of her caliber, and quite honestly she might give me Match of the Night; a lot will be left to take from what a show I am about to put on featuring Milli Banks, and I can’t wait to flourish Milli Banks in defeat to begin her process of blooming into a star – keywords here though, in DEFEAT. Because remember, Milli Banks? She is just taking her baby steps, she’s beginning to learn how to walk but with that, she also has ZERO chance of running with me at this moment in time, she WILL NOT win against me at Justified Reckoning but rather leech off my glory and raise her stock so she can move on to a match that’s a little more in her range, get me? The cockiness, the feeling like you can just waltz in here Milli, and take this title like they already got your side plates in the back ready? That isn’t going to fly when I beat you into the mat and put the quote-on-quote, ‘Conversation’? On mute. I don’t blame you, Milli, again, I said that I have done this myself before; I walked this road that you are about to travel down so I sit here to be your instructor down this learning curve. And before you try and convince me otherwise with a speech to sway my mind on you – to convince me that you can hang with Serenity Valdez? I’d hold that because I’m not interested in the back and forth because not only am I not to be convinced? But the idea itself is absolutely stupid.

Serenity Valdez: So with that lesson aside, I think it’s time to look past Milli Banks and onto the next-

( As the sound of, ‘Changed It’ by Nicki Minaj feat. Lil Wayne cut off Serenity Valdez mid-sentence, and the crowd erupted with a mixture of boos and cheers as the one and only Milli Banks began making her way out of the titantrons entrance, in her ring gear for her upcoming match though a mic in hand, clearly unamused by all that has been said thus far from Serenity Valdez as ‘Changed It’ slowly faded out, Milli beginning to speak.)

Milli Banks: Look, I tried, I really tried to ignore the ear-piercing sound of a Serenity Valdez promo ringing in my ear; I mean it was really hard not to plug my ears or come out here to shut you up before, before the more you drag this whole spiel on and one and one – GIRL! Just SHUT UP! Playing with my name is not what you should be doing right now, you will have enough time to make those mistakes when we meet at Justified Reckoning; but you really deadset on going out down bad, huh? Shame, to say I expected better from the ‘GREAT’ Serenity Valdez is an understatement, but here we are anyways; boo-hoo, now we done here? Because ain’t nobody need to hear you go ahead and preach about how bad your title reign is and yet contradict yourself by saying you’re the best ever; honey, it just don’t make sense and neither do you like – EVER. You can go on ahead and speak on your own free time about how badly you’ll beat me to a pulp at Justified Reckoning, but speeches can only go so SO far before reality comes in to break that motivation, and that reality is the absolute BUTT whoopin’ you’re going to receive at Justified Reckoning that no amount of words you spew out of your mouth will keep ya’ from.

( Milli said, smirking at Serenity Valdez who showed clear annoyance with the interruption as well as the notice Milli Banks was putting her on.)

Milli Banks: You were right when you said the reign you’ve had was lackluster, if anything, I found it really cute to see how much you poured your heart and soul into it, preaching how amazing it would be; lights, camera, action; all that jazz – and yet we are standing here and Tyrone Montgomery CLEARLY wasn’t a big fan of it as we’ve seen as he has just sent the Eviction Notice from Championship Residency otherwise known as Milli Banks, moai, yours truly; and as much as you might be filled with disdain for moments like these deep down? Honey, I am living it up knowing that whilst I shut the door on this little reign of yours I open the land of opportunity for MYSELF as I go on to make moments I can look on back to for years to come, atop of the other achievements I earn along the way of that of course. Even so though, there will be a different gleam in Milli Banks that you provide me Serenity, it’ll be the gleam in my smile knowing that I just boosted my stock in this company and gain the accolade of my first official Championship Reign in EAW at YOUR demise; one of the most proclaimed EAW Elitist in this company currently, being done and dusted by Milli Banks as she leads EAW into a new era- beautiful headline isn’t it? Can’t wait for it to be real and on every billboard and newsletter EAW releases post Justified Reckoning-

Serenity Valdez: ALRIGHT ALRIGHT, CUT IT! Milli all you are spewing at me right now is some BULL SHI-

Milli Banks: Nuh-uh, uh! Serenity, did I sound like I was done? :usure: Because if I did, apologize, because I wasn’t – and even if I was, I don’t think ANYONE wants to hear your voice any more than you’ve already spoken, I mean you said it yourself; you talked a whole lot in your shoot promo last night, so there shouldn’t be much else for you to stretch out this promo to the ten-minute mark, delaying works of art like the one I am about to make on Sierra Bradford’s face after I am finished with her! So please, if you may clear the ring and get all the way back to Tijuana far, FAR away from EAW broadcasting so someone who actually has something other than moaning and complaining or boosting their already bloated ego gets their turn at stepping under the bright lights – ‘kay?

Serenity Valdez: :childplease: Sorry, how DARE you Milli; if you couldn’t tell I was doing more than-

Milli Banks: You’re RIGHT! You should be sorry Serenity, but I think what I would enjoy more than you being sorry is you being SILENT and leaving the ring so I can have my match; think you can do that for me?

Serenity Valdez: Interrupt me one more –

Milli Banks: – Time?! Interrupt you one more time? Was that what you were going to say? I am just so EAGER (not) to hear what you have to say that I just COULDN’T wait for you to finish! Please, try speaking again I would LOVE to cut you off and look at the wonderful face of pure ANGER that you have every single time I do!

( Milli Banks says as she twirls the mic in her hand, laughing to herself as Serenity Valdez is boiling with anger inside the ring, taking a deep breath Serenity Valdez would calm down as she leaned over the top rope looking over at Milli Banks who was now right in front of the ring only feet away from her on the outside. )

Serenity Valdez: You know what? You’re right! Who am I kidding, I mean we’re on Friday Night Dynasty, are we not? I come here every week to do my job beating up whoever Tyrone wants to throw at me, and yet, I don’t think I get much time enjoying the show myself! So tell you what, I’m going to change that starting right now because I think it’s time for me to get a front-row seat to Milli Banks vs Sierra Bradford! Sounds like a good idea to me, and I don’t care if it sounds good to you because it is happening right about… NOW! Try to impress me a little bit if you can, if not. It’d be a real shame, now wouldn’t it?

( Serenity said, grinning ear to ear as she backed up to the edge of the ring, sliding under the bottom rope and backpedaling towards the commentary desk as Milli Banks confidently brushed off the now appearingly sudden threat of Serenity Valdez as ringside as she hopped onto the apron, entering through the middle rope. Milli is still heated from the exchange with Serenity, but she rolls her head around, warming up in preparation for her match.)

Stephie Love: The following contest is scheduled for one fall! Introducing first, and already in the ring… from Brooklyn, New York, she is the “Brooklyn Bankroller”… MILLIIIIIIIII BAAAAAAAAAAANKS!

(The fans boo right on cue, but Milli waves them all off. Serenity can be seen cheesing on the sidelines. Soon, ‘Hey Superstar’ by Madina Lake comes on as the fans cheer. Stepping out onto the stage is one Sierra Bradford, focused as ever. She bounces lightly on her feet and she inhales and exhales. She pauses, looks around the arena, and nods, having a faint smile on her face before she heads down the ramp. Her eyes are locked in on Milli, and likewise, Milli’s eyes are on her as she waits in the ring.)

Stephie Love: And introducing her opponent, from San Jose, California, she is the “Killer Queen”… SIEEEERRAAAAAAAA BRRAAAAAADFOOOOOOOOOOORD!

Stew-O: Sierra may not have won last week, but she’s shown everyone that she is here to stay and rewrite her career. At any given moment with her match against Astraea, she could’ve convincingly walked out as the winner. Even in defeat, she’s shown a lot of heart and determination, and her skills have improved. Many people highlighted the change, but now it’s game time. Sierra has expressed she wants nothing more than to beat Milli Banks, and with a win against one of the fastest-rising stars in EAW, that will surely help Bradford out.

Jake Mercer: Yeah, she was close, but close isn’t good enough. Sierra has improved, sure, but now we’ve got to see the results. A loss against Astraea? Hey, nothing to be ashamed of. However, she’s going to have to pull out all of the stops here tonight to beat Milli Banks who’s always in the mindset of showing up and showing out.

Flannery McCoy: Both women are focused and motivated here. However, I have to wonder if Milli will be able to keep all of her attention on Sierra here tonight with Serenity out with us. She really got into a war of words with Valdez, and as much as Milli may claim that she isn’t worried in the slightest, you can still see that she’s practically smoldering underneath.

Stew-O: You’re right, Flannery. Either that rage will serve to her benefit or lead her to her first loss in over a month. Either way, we’ll just have to wait and see for ourselves.

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Stew-O: The bell rings, and Milli Banks gets straight into the face of Sierra Bradford!

Milli Banks: (off-mic) You a warm-up for me, you hear? It’s over for you.

Sierra Bradford: (off-mic) You need to back up. I’m already tired of you after you disrespected me. Don’t make this worse for yourself.

Milli Banks: (off-mic) Word? That’s how froggy you Cali cats be feeling? I ain’t moving at all, so move me. Do it! Move me! I dare you! Put your hands on me and see what’s gonna ha–

Stew-O: And Sierra responds with a shove before GOING FOR A SUPERKICK! BUT MILLI DUCKS! SHE THROWS GOES FOR A ROUNDHOUSE KICK, BUT BRADFORD AVOIDS THAT! SHE DUCKS AND EXTENDS HER LEG OUT TO SWEEP AT MILLI’S FEET, BUT BANKS JUMPS, AND CATCHES SIERRA WITH A STIFF FOREARM AS BRADFORD COMES UP!

Jake Mercer: Oh, man, we are starting hot and heavy tonight! Milli goes to whip Sierra into the ropes, but Bradford turns the momentum against her. Milli comes back and Sierra goes for a kick! But Milli cartwheels out of the way! She goes for a dropkick, Sierra goes for a dropkick, and both their feet hit each other as the two Elitists roll away. Milli flips forward and onto her feet while Sierra kips up! We got a stare-down going on!

Flannery McCoy: Both women go for the ropes. Sierra comes in, but Milli leaps right over her. Milli runs at her now, but Sierra ducks down and pops back up. She goes to catch Banks off with a kick, but Milli rolls underneath and rolls back, trapping Sierra with a head scissors! She spins and spins and she takes Sierra down! Bradford scrambles up to her feet as Milli comes bolting at her and catches her with an uppercut! Milli gives a look over at Serenity and blows her a kiss! Now, she’s hitting the ropes again, and she goes for a clothesline– NO! Sierra catches the arm! She wrenches it as she falls back with the wind-up pele kick! Milli shakes at her arm as she stumbles about, but Sierra grabs it again and wrings it, flipping her to sit on the mat. A kick lands flush on the side of Bank’s head! Sierra goes for the quick cover!

ONE–

Stew-O: Kickout from Milli! Sierra takes hold of that same arm and gets it trapped in a hold, trying to work on it. Milli winces, but she’s getting up to her feet. Milli looks at the ropes, at Sierra, and then back at those ropes. She grabs the top rope, flips forward into the air, and hits the arm drag, rolling Sierra through! Sierra gets up and goes straight for Milli– BUT SHE GETS STUNNED WITH A ROARING DISCUS ELBOW! Milli shakes that arm again before she brings Sierra in. She lifts her up and drops her down with the snap suplex! She floats over and goes for the pin!

ONEEEE–

Jake Mercer: But Sierra gets her shoulder up! Milli brings her up to her feet and tries to go for another strike, but SIERRA SCOUTS HER OUT WITH THE SCORPION KICK! MILLI STUMBLES AND FALLS TO HER KNEES! Sierra grabs her by the wrist, traps her arm between the legs, and rolls her through for the magistral cradle!

ONEEEEEEEEE–

Flannery McCoy: Kickout! But just when we thought Milli was free, Sierra rolls her up again with the schoolboy! Another cover here!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEE–

Stew-O: And again, Milli powers out. Banks is up as Sierra rises to her feet. As soon as they meet, Sierra is quick to strike and trips her legs. She rolls forward and goes for the jackknife pin!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE–

Jack Mercer: But Milli has her arms wrapped around the midsection of Sierra and bridges up, using her core strength to get right back up and switch positions to go for the backslide!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

TW–

Flannery McCoy: Kickout! What an incredible sequence there from these two talented Elitists! The fans are applauding their efforts, but of course, both Milli and Sierra only care about winning this thing! The two women eye each other down as they pace around the ring. Milli’s talking some serious smack, but Sierra just shakes her head. They lock up, and this time Milli is the quicker of the two as she brings a knee to the gut of Sierra Bradford! She goes behind her and wraps her arms around her waist, trying to lift her up, but Sierra isn’t budging! Another attempt, but Sierra’s weight isn’t shifting! Sierra nails an elbow behind to the side of Milli’s head before reaching back and throwing her off with the snapmare. Milli rolls forward and gets up, but SIERRA IS RIGHT BEHIND AND COMING AT HER WITH A CLOTHESLINE–

Stew-O: MILLI JUST NARROWLY AVOIDS IT! SHE BENDS BACK WITH THE MATRIX-ESQUE EVASION! Sierra stops her momentum from leading her to the ropes! She turns around and Milli gets her with a calf kick! Sierra is hit and pops up, but another calf kick sends her down! Milli kips up, beckoning for Sierra as Bradford finds her way to her feet. A roundhouse kick stuns her! Milli races for the ropes and springs off of them, CONNECTING WITH THE SPRINGBOARD MOONSAULT! Banks’ athleticism is on full display here as she nails the manuver! She keeps her body on top of Sierra’s as she pins her down!

ONEEEEEEEEEEE!

TW–

Jake Mercer: But Bradford pops her shoulder up off of the canvas! Milli laughs! She looks at Serenity and makes a gun-like motion at her with her fingers. The Specialist champion just shakes her head! However, Milli’s attention shifts back to the down Bradford as she forces her up to her feet and takes hold of her wrist. Milli sends her down with a sharp throw, but still maintains a hold on that wrist! She sends Sierra down again, but not letting go of that wrist! Sierra gets to her knees, but here comes Milli as she steps in and ROCKS HER with a sharp knee strike! Sierra goes down!

Flannery McCoy: The crowd is booing her, but Milli basks in their hate! With her grip still on that wrist, she drags Sierra up to her feet brings her over to rest on the middle rope. Milli holds on to that top rope as she presses her feet into Bradford’s back and uses the ropes to help choke her out! The referee begins to count! We’re getting awfully close to five, but Milli lets go at the last possible second! Talk about milking every second!!

Stew-O: It may not have been respectable, but it was effective. Sierra is clutching at her throat, trying to bring air back into her body. Milli eyes her down before bouncing on the bottom rope, hopping onto the middle one, and DRIVING HER KNEES DOWN ONTO THE MIDSECTION OF SIERRA BRADFORD! BRADFORD IS IN PAIN!

Jake Mercer: She’s definitely ruthless, and it seems like she wants Serenity to know that she’s going to use everything at her disposal to beat her once they meet at Justified Reckoning! For now though, Sierra is the unfortunate Elitist being used for this demonstration. Milli drops an elbow onto her! Sierra winces! A quick stomp is offered before Milli leaps into the air and brings both of her knees down onto Sierra again! She rolls forward and flips back, nailing the moonsault! Bank Roll! And she goes for the cover!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO–

Flannery McCoy: But Sierra kicks out emphatically, shaking her head! Milli runs a hand through her hair and sighs. She gets up and brings Sierra along with her, leading her to the corner. Grabbing her by the hair, she stars to ram Bradford’s face against the turnbuckle! Once! Twice! Three times! Just over and over again! The referee tells Banks that she needs to cut it out and she does! She laughs and taunts Sierra, even going as far as to smush her face with her palm! Just absolute disrespect here!

Stew-O: Milli backs up and dusts her shoulders off before she gets a running start. She cartwheels and goes for a handspring back elbow– but no one is home! Sierra is able to get out of the way in just the nick of time! The fans come to life as Sierra runs to the ropes behind Milli and comes back to DRIVE HER FACE INTO THE CANVAS WITH A BULLDOG! Sierra is able to swing the momentum of this match into her favor and she takes the time to gather herself before going back on the attack.

Jake Mercer: Here comes Sierra now, coming down with a double foot stomp of her own! Milli sits up, clutching her gut, but as she gets to an upright position, Bradford is right there to bring her back down with a Meteora! Sierra psyches herself up as she eyes those ropes! Milli stirs, albeit slowly, as her opponent’s eyes lay right back onto her. As soon as she gets up, Sierra runs for the ropes! She springs off of them and flips back, catching Milli with the Fairytale Killer–

Flannery McCoy: NO! MILLI BLOCKS THE ATTEMPT! SHE SPINS OUT OF THE HOLD AND GRABS SIERRA WITH HER, GETTING HER UP IN A TOMBSTONE POSITION! BUT WAIT! SIERRA IS ABLE TO FALL BACK AND GET TO HER FEET, LIFTING MILLI IN THE SAME POSITION! SHE GETS HER UP INTO THE AIR AND DRIVES HER CHEST DOWN ONTO HER KNEES! OH MY GOD! WHAT A REVERSAL!!

Stew-O: Milli is in big trouble now! Sierra is back up on her feet, yelling at Banks to get up! Milli is clutching her chest, but she’s able to get up! Sierra comes in and GETS HER WITH THE ROLLING KOPPU KICK! ELECTRIC FEEL! COVER!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

T–

Jake Mercer: SHE KICKS OUT! MILLI IS STILL IN THIS! EVEN IF SHE’S IN A WHOLE WORLD OF HURT RIGHT NOW, SHE’S ABLE TO POWER OUT!

Flannery McCoy: Sierra has her hands on her hips as she looks up, trying to not get worked up. She wants to win this badly! She wants to make sure that her return here in EAW isn’t one that will be in vain! She came so close to beating Astraea last week, and now she’s close to putting Milli Banks away for good!

Stew-O: Sierra is up now, and she brings Milli up with her. She starts lighting her up with a series of quick kicks and a few chops and strikes. The offensive flurry has Milli reeling! Sierra takes a couple of step backs… AND SHE ROCKS HER WITH THE SUPERKICK! MILLI ALMOST COLLAPSES, BUT SOMEHOW, SHE’S ON HER FEET! Sierra shifts over to get a hold of Banks and places her back on her shoulders! Milli is in the backbreaker rack! Sierra is going to end it here–

Jake Mercer: But look, they’re close to the ropes, and Milli’s hands are grabbing them for dear life! Milli isn’t letting go! Sierra tries to pull her from them but she can’t pry her away! Sierra lets go of Milli and she comes charging in, but Milli sends her over the top rope! Sierra almost goes out completely, but at least one of her feet manages to stay on the apron! She hangs on!

Flannery McCoy: But she may not be out of the clear yet! Milli slingshots over the top rope and SHE GETS SIERRA BY THE HEAD AND USES ALL OF THAT MOMENTUM TO SPIKE HER ON THE APRON WITH THE DDT! WHAT A NASTY MOVE! SIERRA FALLS TO THE GROUND HARD WHILE MILLI TRIES TO SHAKE OFF THE PAIN ON THE OUTSIDE! THE REFEREE BEGINS TO COUNT!

ONE!

TWO!

THREE!

Stew-O: Milli uses the apron to help her up as she takes a deep breath. She looks down at Sierra and stomps down at her! Now, she gets her up and just throws her right into the barricade! The fans boo, but she gets up in their face and yells back at them!

FOUR!

FIVE!

Jake Mercer: Milli gets Sierra up and rolls her underneath the bottom rope! She goes to enter back, but Serenity is yelling at her!

Serenity Valdez: (off-mic) Are you really hurt by her? I thought you said that she was going to be light work for you!

Flannery McCoy: Uh-oh, Milli’s attention is right on her! She walks over to Valdez and gets right in her space.

Milli Banks: (off-mic) Girl, shut up before I throw your trifling self in there and whoop the two of you at the same time. If you wanna catch this work for real, then we ain’t gotta wait for October to come around, boo. I’m ready for you.

SIX!

SEVEN!

Serenity Valdez: (off-mic) As much as I would love nothing more than to get in there and embarrass you, you’re running the risk of doing that yourself. You might wanna hurry up, Milli Vanilli. You’re about to get counted out!

EIGHT!

Milli Banks: (off-mic) Man, suck my d–

Serenity Valdez: (off-mic) Oop, you better not! Otherwise, you might just get banned like you did from the Olympics!

Milli Banks: (off-mic) I’m coming for you. Watch me.

NIIIIINE!

Stew-O: And Milli is able to beat the ten count as she rolls back into the ring. Sierra is still down as Milli gets into a corner. She crouches down, eyeing Bradford! The crowd boos! We could be coming close to the end of the match here, ladies and gentlemen!

Jake Mercer: She’s getting ready! Sierra finally begins to move as she slowly gets to her hands and knees! We could be seeing either the ‘Bankrupt’ or ‘New Body’ here–

Serenity Valdez: (off-mic) Actually, Milli, there is one last thing I wanna say to you.

Flannery McCoy: Milli’s head snaps over to Serenity who’s gotten closer to the ring! Oh god, what is going on here?!

Serenity Valdez: (off-mic) Simone is better. :troll:

Milli Banks: (off-mic) ..Wow. I’m so heartbroken, Serenity. I’m literally going to cry and throw up now. :eyeroll: Stupid little–

Stew-O: WAIT, SIERRA BRADFORD ROLLS MILLI UP! SHE ROLLS HER UP AS SHE WAS TOO BUSY TALKING BACK TO SERENITY!

Jake Mercer: BUT LOOK! SHE GOT THE TIGHTS! HANG ON NOW! THE REFEREE DOESN’T SEE IT!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Flannery McCoy: OH MY GOD! SIERRA WON! JUST LIKE THAT!

(‘Hey Superstar’ blasts throughout the arena as Sierra Bradford beats Milli Banks, securing her first win for her comeback run. Most of the crowd in the audience goes nuts, rooting for Bradford. However, a few of the fans are puzzled, looking at each other as they still try to register the way in which Sierra won.)

Stephie Love: Here is your winner, SIERRAAAAAAAAAAA BRAAAAAADFOOOOOOOOOOORD!

(Sierra gets up and has her arms raised by the referee. Serenity laughs on the outside, slapping her knee and pointing right at Milli Banks who pops up in disbelief. She goes straight to the referee and explains that her tights were being held. However, the referee blows her off. Enraged, she jumps up and down before giving the bottom rope a kick. In the meantime, Sierra leaves the ring, holding on to her head yet very much radiating that post-victory glow as she makes her way to the back.)

Stew-O: And Sierra gets the win here tonight, even if it’s in a controversial fashion! Milli is livid right now.

Jake Mercer: Can you blame her?! She had that match won. WON! Serenity stuck her nose in and look at what happened! As a matter of fact, this is the second time tonight where someone who had no business being at ringside got themselves involved and cost the Elitist that was going to win everything. This is preposterous! Egregious! Shameful!

Flannery McCoy: There’s… definitely a lot of mixed feelings going on, but Sierra won. The circumstances of that win may not have been ideal, but as it stands now, she’s been able to beat a rising star in Milli Banks. Hats off to her two, because she was able to go the distance with two women back-to-back who may be the purest athletes here on Dynasty. This time, Sierra’s efforts have paid off for her in a big way tonight.

(Serenity continues to laugh as she props the Specialist Championship on her shoulder and walks up to the ramp. However, making their way down is Gemma Jackson, who stops to exchange looks with Valdez. The champion gives a smarmy grin and a sarcastic wave before departing. Gemma scoffs and shakes her head. She gets in the ring and approaches her sister, getting her to calm down. Milli is able to simmer down, but it’s clear as day that she’s still upset by everything.)

(A commercial is shown for tomorrow’s episode of Saturday Night Showdown, showcasing the big-time main event match with Jake Smith and Chris Elite of The Haircare Kings facing the Answers World Champion Impact and Kassidy Heart in a tag team match!)

(‘Morals’ by EST Gee plays throughout the arena. The crowd boos as the trio of Astraea Jordan, Visual Prophet, and SOSA Henderson come out. They’re all dripped out, wearing their Friday best as they make their way to the ring.)

Jake Mercer: HERE WE GO! THE GREATEST ENSEMBLE OF BLACK ELITISTS TO HAVE EVER WRESTLED IN EAW! :blessed:

Stew-O: And here comes Soul Food Sunday, fresh off a successful week that saw Astraea Jordan defeating the returning Sierra Bradford and SOSA Henderson and Visual Prophet defeating the Off-Brand Amphetamines.

Jake Mercer: As they should’ve. But then again, it’s just routine for them to dominate their competition.

Flannery McCoy: They are a tough team to beat. Alone or together, all three members are a force to be reckoned with.

Jake Mercer: Oh, at least now you’re giving them their props. Keep it at, Flannery! Recognize them as the greatest to ever do this!

Flannery McCoy: Um, okay…? I’ve always given them their credit, but hey, it’s whatever. :shrug:

(Soul Food Sunday are in the ring, dapping each other up, laughing, and just celebrating amongst themselves. Despite the booing, the three of them are in good spirits.)

Visual Prophet: What did we tell y’all? Hm? What did we tell all of you that we were going to do? Astraea, correct me if I’m wrong, but didn’t we say that we were going to continue to dominate and beat any team that thinks they can step to us?

Astraea Jordan: We sure did.

Visual Prophet: And SOSA, didn’t we say that we’re good as a team? That whatever differences we had in the past were gone and now Soul Food Sunday can look forward to being the best crop of talent there is in EAW?

SOSA Henderson: Absolutely, Viz.

Visual Prophet: And did we not prove ourselves correct last week?

Astraea and SOSA: Yup, we did!

Visual Prophet: So, do you all know what that means? It means that Soul Food Sunday means business. Unlike all these other flash-in-a-pan teams that think they can coast on by with one cute win and think that they’re up, we’re actually consistent. We’re up on the basis of our hard work and unwavering talent. Last week, it was nothing but dubs. Just like we said we would, we proved without a shadow of a doubt that the three of us as a collective are the team to beat… except for, well, the fact that none of the teams here currently in EAW can beat us. :mjlol:

Astraea Jordan: Nah, ’cause so many people had a lot to say about us, yet they ended up looking really stupid. I beat Miss Sierra-That-Wants-To-Have-A-Last-Name-Now. And you know what? Fair play to her. She really did everything she could to try and beat me, but in the end, I proved that I am simply cut from a different cloth. She wanted people to believe that she had all of this heart and passion, but… I proved that my drive is far greater than hers. I’m one of one, and no one else can compare themselves to me, especially not some uppity cac who thought that she had an actual chance of beating me.

Visual Prophet: Ooooohhhh snap, Astraea. You better preach it! The only woman here capable of getting that snapback is you! Gone for four years, had a beautiful baby, and now you’re out here steamrolling all of these other chicks here. You just love to see it.

SOSA Henderson: For real, you held your own, but it ain’t nothing new. You been that chick, just like how Viz and I been them dudes. We all up. In fact, if people really need further proof that we are out here strong as ever, then look no further than looking at what we accomplished last week. Be it together or by ourselves, we win. We come in, step through those ropes, enter this ring and we wild out. Ain’t nothing changed or switched up. None of these Elitists here can match us. Going against one of us is bad enough, but trying to go against us together? Now, you’re just asking to get yourself humiliated. But aye, if we wanna get to the top of this place, then we can’t be out here sitting on our hands and waiting for the opportunity to fall on our laps. That ain’t our style.

Visual Prophet: It sure isn’t, SOSA. Even if a lot of the Elitists here can’t really measure up to us, we still appreciate anyone that’s willing to step up and at least try to present themselves as a challenge for us. I mean, the harder you try to go against us, the more you’re actually working to make us look good! It’s been fun having forgettable tag team matches with the likes of the Off-Brand Amphetamines and… the Off-Brand Amphetamines. However, we want a more forceful push now. Together. So, what better way to do that than by offering a proposition for any team aside from the bozos we’ve already beaten to step up to us and get in the ring with the three of us at Justified Reckoning?

Astraea Jordan: Don’t forget we ain’t facing off against the Ice Aces either. We’ve already beaten them.

Visual Prophet: Oh, yeah, true true. So, that’s at least two teams off the cards already, just like how they’re poised to be off the cards for the next upcoming free-per-views! :mjlol: Still, that’s the fate that’s to be expected when you go up against three people who can easily son you. So, who’s next? Who else wants to try and prove their mettle against us? Hm?

(Astraea, Viz, and SOSA look on at the stage, waiting for someone to come out. Fortunately, they’d get their wish soon. “Shake It” by Metro Station plays and out comes Jake Smith and Chris Elite! The two walk down and enter the ring, mics in hand as they look straight at Soul Food Sunday. However, before they can speak, they notice that SFS are trying to hold back their laughter. Both Chris and Jake roll their eyes, but they remain unphased.)

Jake Smith: Oh, we get it. Trust us, we do. We know what’s going on in your heads and likely the heads of a lot of people here. We’ve been on a string of bad luck, and that’s putting it mildly. We both know it. Still, just like you three, Chris and I are looking for something big to get us going this season and it really doesn’t matter which brand it is either. All we want is a chance and an opportunity to make sure that this season goes well for us. So, what better way to do that than by accepting your challenge? After all, we’re all vying for the same thing. Even if the results are different right now, we’re all just trying to get to the same path.

Astraea Jordan: Huh? The same path? No we ain’t! And certainly not when you two are out here taking losses on top of losses every other week! We’re dominating consistently, you get that? It was cute when the two of you were running this division way back when, but your chapter is done. The story isn’t going to be written in your favor. Y’all are over at this rate. So, really, cut the weak stuff out and leave the fluff outta this. Be real. The two of you are out here because you want some of this Soul Food magic to rub off on y’all. Otherwise, y’all would be like the rest of these teams that have become an afterthought.

SOSA Henderson: Even then, ion know what kind of magic can help the two of y’all out. We’re elite. The two of you, meanwhile? Well, y’all couldn’t even use that stupid little contract y’all got to help y’all out.

Chris Elite: Wow. Thanks, SOSA, for once again pointing out the obvious. It’s not like Jake and I acknowledge our faults and slip-ups almost every single week and try to hold ourselves accountable! Wow! Thank you for adding some worth to this very stimulating conversation, good sir.

SOSA Henderson: Boy, don’t be trying to be all cute and funny with none of that sarcastic slickness, ’cause you definitely ain’t got no right tryna be that way with us. Matter of fact, it’s funny how you’re almost tryna talk up to us as if you ain’t out here dragging your feet and doing the bare minimum. Yet were a captain, yet it was for a ship that was alreay sinking. That’s crazy.

Chris Elite: And you were out here being a snake and turning on your partner because you both got your butts handed to you by the two people you joined forces with. You’re really on that Kevin Durant wave, aren’t you?

Crowd: Ooooooooooohhhhhhhhh!

SOSA Henderson: Excuse me? Listen, don’t be talking about something you know nothing about! Tha chick was weak, okay? She was dragging me down with her laziness just like how you dragged your own team down with yours. I had to cut her off and level up myself. ‘Sides, whatever beef I had with these two are in the past. And unlike you and your boy here, at least we ain’t gotta rest on our past laurels to remain relevant here.

Visual Prophet: Get them, SOSA. Own these frauds!

Jake Smith: Um, no. The three of you aren’t owning anyone. Like I said, we know the current position we are in isn’t a favorable one we’ve brought it up again and again ad nasuem. It’s to the point where it makes us sick. We know we could be so much more. We know that we can do more. We were tag champions before, after all. We’re used to facing high-level talent such as yourselves to get there. We’ve been at the top of the tag team mountain before, and we will definitely be back up there again. We’re an established team here. You’re not.

Astraea Jordan: Hm. Okay. But, um…

(Astraea looks perplexed for a moment, scratching her head as she looks at her partners before eyeing Chris and Jake up and down.)

Astraea Jordan: If two plus two is four, and five plus five is ten, then what is this that’s going on here? Three doesn’t equal two, dummies. You’re outnumbered here. All this talk about stepping up to the three of us, yet where’s the third person? Huh? Where they at?

Jake Smith: Oh, don’t you worry. They’re here.

(Jake gives an all-knowing smile as he raises his finger. All of a sudden, ‘ətˈæk 0N tάɪtn <WMId>’ by Hiroyuki Sawano plays and the crowd is on their feet. Holly Arrow steps out, nodding and smiling.)

Stew-O: Oh, my! She’s here! Holly Arrow is right here on Dynasty! She’s the third person!

Jake Mercer: :eyeroll:

Flannery McCoy: What?

Jake Mercer: Of course she would be here. I mean, hello? She and Jake are dating? Yet I’m supposed to be all surprised?!

Flannery McCoy: Why do you have to be so negative?

(Holly enters the ring and settles in the middle of Jake and Chris. The three fist-bump each other, but the lighthearted nature of Holly leaves as she puts on a more serious expression.)

Holly Arrow: So much for that one, huh? At any rate, I’m here, so you three don’t need to worry about who will be the third person. As soon as Chris and Jake made the offer to me and I couldn’t resist. We’re all fighting for our chance to either become and return to the upper echelon of the competition here in EAW, and since a certain team wanted a nice challenge, well, who was I to refuse?

Visual Prophet: Oh man. The material is so ripe with you Holly that I’m not going to say anything. The jokes write themselves.

Holly Arrow: Well, let’s hope that those jokes will be funnier than anything you have ever said in your career here, Viz. We are not going to be walking punchlines. We’re here to be the best, and we’re going to do just that once we beat you and make the claim for being the best crop of talent here in EAW.

(Viz’s eyes go wide, while Astraea makes up her face and SOSA shakes his head, kissing his teeth. The crowd cheers.)

SOSA Henderson: I mean, if y’all wanna believe that, then that’s on you. But the thing here is this: you’re going up against the three of us who are currently in our primes. Meanwhile, the three of you are coming off of some of the biggest losses in your careers. Y’all are slipping while we’re on the comeback. If you can somehow kick it up a gear and come close to matching us? Then fine. We’ll congratulate you. Might even get y’all a box of cookies and some of them stickers like the teachers used to give out for the effort put in. But that’s all you’ll amount to: putting in the effort, yet the effort never leads to actual results. And if you think you’re somehow going to beat us and get a shot at those tag titles? Then y’all are seriously delusional.

Chris Elite: Delusional? Us? Ha! No, the only ones delusional here are you three. See, there you go again, claiming you want a challenge yet at the same time undermining us and thinking that this is going to be a breeze for you. Sorry, but spoiler alert: it isn’t going to be easy. Not when we have so much to gain by beating you. We’ve already tasted the bottom and we’ve had enough of it. So, from here on out, we’re working our way back to the top, and that includes beating Soul Food Sunday at Justified Reckoning.

Visual Prophet: Wow. You’re really desperate, huh? But so be it. You’re on, but just like we’ve told all these other teams before you, don’t get upset when the outcome doesn’t land in your favor. We’ll be seeing you three soon enough. Just try not to lose any more matches between tonight and then, yeah?

Holly Arrow: Oh, no worries. We won’t. Just make sure that none of you three end up leaving the group if you do happen to lose before we meet and throw a tantrum.

(The Haircare Kings’ theme hits as Jake, Chris and Holly leave, satisfied. Meanwhile, Soul Food Sunday watch on, talking amongst themselves and waving them off.)

Jake Mercer: Guess it’s official then, huh? The Haircare Kings and Holly Arrow are the ones stepping up to the plate, and Soul Food Sunday is open to the idea of facing them.

Flannery McCoy: The challenge has been made and accepted. Still, I have a feeling this won’t be the last time these two teams will meet as we get closer to Justified Reckoning.

(A commercial is shown for the Saturday Night Showdown exclusive Free-Per-View, No Regards, starring Xander Payne, Alex Myers, Holly Arrow, and Adam Lucas.)

(Friday Night Dynasty comes back from commercial break as immediately we are met with ‘The Rumbling’ by SiM beginning to play through the speakers of the arena. The camera goes over to the commentary table to show Limmy Monaghan joining the Dynasty trio, putting a headset on with a smile on his face.)

Stew-O: Ladies and gentlemen we have an addition to our table for this match, thank you for joining us Limmy.

Limmy Monaghan: The pleasure is all mine gentlemen and ladies, let’s have some fun.

(The camera goes over to the ring where Stephie Love is seen with a microphone in her hand, ready to announce the next match!)

Stephie Love: Ladies and gentlemen, this is your MAIN EVENT!!! And it is a singles match scheduled for…

Crowd: ONE FALL!!!

(‘A Stranger I Remain’ by Free Dominguez is heard playing through the speakers while the camera goes over to the stage to show Amir Yusuf confidently making his way out from the backstage area. He has a fist raised in the air while the crowd greets him with loud boos upon making his appearance here tonight. He points toward the ring as he then begins to make his way down the ramp with sheer determination in his wake.)

Stephie Love: Introducing first… residing in Chicago, Illinois… weighing in at 182 pounds… ‘THE IRREPLACEABLE’… AMIR YUSUF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(‘Trophies’ by Drake is then heard blasting through the speakers, with the camera going over to show the Interwire Champion Joso begin to make his way out to the stage. He wears his Championship around his waist confidently, before he unbuckles it and takes it into his hands, raising it high into the air while the crowd cheer loudly in approval. He smirks while looking around at the crowd, feeling good here tonight even after the debacle he had with Jay Jerry Johnson earlier, while he makes his way to the ring.)

Stephie Love: And his opponent… from Bronx, New York… weighing in at 206 pounds… he is the EAW INTERWIRE CHAMPION!!!!!!!!!! ‘THE NEW ERA’… JOSO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(DING! DING! DING!)

Stew-O: The bell has rung, signaling that this main event match is officially underway! Amir Yusuf and Joso begin to make their way around the ring, AND IMMEDIATELY AMIR GOES UNDER AND SNATCHES THE LEG OF JOSO BEFORE TAKING HIM DOWN TO THE MAT! Joso rolls onto his back, realizing the trouble he’s in and doing everything he can to recover quickly, BUT AMIR GETS BACK UP TO HIS FEET AND LEAPS INTO THE AIR TRYING TO ATTEMPT A JUMPING DOUBLE FOOT STOMP TO HIS CHEST! BUT BEFORE HE CAN JOSO ALSO SEES THAT COMING AND ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY OF THAT! Joso gets up to a knee while Amir rolls downward and gets back up to his feet, and look at the crowd roaring in approval while these two Elitists find themselves at a standstill!

Limmy Monaghan: :notbad:

Flannery McCoy: Joso pushes himself up to his feet while Amir gives a sly smirk before beginning to make his way around again. If I had to guess, the two are looking to refresh and start traditionally with the lock up. Which is what they do with the both of them stepping forward and engaging in a collar-and-elbow tie up! The two of them are looking to jockey for position now, and before Amir can do anything it’s Joso that manages to beat him to the punch and go under before clinching in a waist lock from behind! He attempts to pry himself free, but before he can Joso lifts him off of the ground before slamming him onto the canvas stomach first!

Jake Mercer: Amir pushes away and tries to roll away in retreat, but Joso catches him while he’s sitting up and locks in a headlock behind him! He’s making sure that Amir doesn’t escape his grasp because give him just a little bit of breathing room and he’ll capitalize on that; which I’m sure is what he’s looking for right now in response to the Interwire Champion’s attack. Amir gets his footing and pushes himself up to his feet, while Joso attempts to drop his weight to bring him down to the mat. He keeps the hold locked in, BUT AMIR MANAGES TO STEP TO THE SIDE BEFORE SNATCHING THE HEAD OF JOSO AND FORCING HIM TO LET GO BEFORE DROPPING HIM DOWN WITH A SNAPMARE! Joso is up in a seated position, WHILE AMIR GETS BACK UP TO HIS FEET AND TAKES HIM DOWN TO THE MAT WITH A DROPKICK TO THE BACK OF HIS HEAD!

Stew-O: Amir turns around and runs toward the ropes… LEAPING INTO THE AIR AND CONNECTING WITH A KNEE DROP TO THE HEAD OF JOSO! Joso is hurt now, once again sitting up in place, and that gives Amir the opportunity to grab his arm and heave him up to his feet… PULLING HIM IN AND CONNECTING WITH A HIGH KNEE TO THE FACE! He isn’t done there as he keeps a hold of Joso, BEFORE USING THAT MOMENTUM TO PULL HIM IN AND CONNECTING WITH A SAITO SUPLEX! JOSO IS DROPPED ON HIS HEAD WHILE AMIR GOES FOR A PIN!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOO-

Flannery McCoy: JOSO KICKS OUT BEFORE THE THREE COUNT!

Limmy Monaghan: Yup, no surprises there. Joso is a tough competitor to keep down and excels when his back is against the wall, Amir is going to have to do a lot more if he wants to keep him down, and even then… I don’t think it’ll be enough.

Jake Mercer: You know, I have a feeling I know who you want to win this match. :mjpls:

Limmy Monaghan: Personal biases aside… I’d be interested to see a reality where the opposite happens, certainly would add a little more ground to his absurd claims. It would be idiotic of me not to root for my former teammate though.

Stew-O: While that’s happening it looks like Amir is back up to his feet and leaving for the apron. He turns and immediately begins to make his way up to the top rope, meanwhile Joso is steadily beginning to get up to his feet despite the offense he’s sustained. Amir positions himself… BEFORE LEAPING OFF OF THE TOP ROPE AND GOING FOR A CROSSBODY- BUT JOSO MANAGES TO MOVE OUT OF THE WAY! Amir crashes and burns on the ground, but grabs at his abdomen and fights through the pain by quickly getting back up to his feet, but Joso has fallen into the corner to prop himself up in hopes of a quick recovery. AMIR RUNS FORWARD LOOKING TO TAKE HIM OUT IN THE CORNER- But Joso manages to sidestep out of the way of it before throwing Amir into the corner himself! Amir is backed up and trying to find a way out of the situation that he’s in, BUT WHATEVER HE HAS IN MIND HE’S TOO LATE AS JOSO LEAPS ONTO HIM BEFORE SENDING HIM FLYING ACROSS THE RING WITH A MONKEY FLIP!

Limmy Monaghan: Coming from me, he should know better than to do top rope moves recklessly. :mjpls: But what do I know, I’m no better than Amir Yusuf!

Flannery McCoy: Amir certainly looks to prove that here tonight as he begins to get back up to his feet, clutching at his spine now and realizing the trouble that he finds himself in right now in this match. Joso is quickly approaching though and if he wants to find a way around this then he’s certainly going to have to think quickly. He grabs Amir by the head, but before he can do anything it’s Amir that shoves him away and manages to create distance between the two of them. Joso is taken off guard while Amir gets back up to his feet, stepping forward and beginning to unload with an absolute barrage of forearms straight to the face! Joso is left stunned while Amir pushes him back toward the ropes, before grabbing him by the arm and sending him toward the opposite side! While that happens Amir runs toward the opposite pair… LOOKING TO CATCH HIM WITH A PERFECTLY EXECUTED HANDSPRING BACK ELBOW TO THE FACE UPON THE REBOUND OFF THE ROPES!

Jake Mercer: BUT JOSO COUNTERS HIM AND LEAPS INTO THE AIR BEFORE DROPPING AMIR DOWN TO THE GROUND WITH A PICTURE PERFECT BACKSTABBER! YOU CAN SEE THE EYES OF AMIR WIDEN UPON IMPACT KNOWING THAT HIS PLAN HAS BEEN THWARTED AND I CAN ONLY IMAGINE THE IMMENSE PAIN THAT HE’S IN RIGHT NOW! JOSO NOW GRABS HIM BY THE HEAD AND BRINGS HIM UP TO HIS FEET BEFORE SETTING HIM UP FOR SOMETHING BIG… ‘INCOMING SILENCE’! THE SPINNING SIT-OUT POWERBOMB DRILLS AMIR YUSUF DOWN TO THE CANVAS WHILE JOSO HOLDS POSITION FOR A PIN ATTEMPT!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!!

TTTTTHHHH-

Stew-O: NOT JUST YET! AMIR MANAGES TO KICK OUT BEFORE THIS MATCH COULD COME TO AN END! Joso doesn’t seem very deterred by the kick out and it’s going to be up to Amir to find a way out of this tricky situation that he’s in and furthermore outmatch the Champion in this one. Amir begins to roll toward the ropes, clutching onto the bottom rope and using them to get back up to his feet. I think he sees Joso back up to his feet and beginning to make his way toward him though as he drops his plan to roll out of the ring in retreat instead.

Flannery McCoy: Joso seems to be thinking on the spot as well as he leaves the ring and stands on the apron, focusing his trajectory on Amir who has dragged himself over to the barricade and clutched onto the edge of it to pull himself up to his feet. He stumbles forward and I don’t think he sees that he’s right where Joso wants him, AS HE RUNS FORWARD AND CONNECTS WITH A PENALTY KICK TO HIS CHEST TO DROP HIM BACK DOWN TO THE RINGSIDE MATTING! Amir is taken down and I don’t think Joso is quite finished yet, positioning himself once more, possibly looking for something big to connect on the outside… AS HE LAUNCHES HIMSELF OFF OF THE APRON AND LOOKS TO CONNECT WITH A DIVING SENTON TO CRUSH AMIR BENEATH HIM!

Jake Mercer: BUT HE MISSES! AMIR ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY CAUSING JOSO TO CRASH AND BURN IN A HUGE WAY ON THE OUTSIDE! Amir quickly gets back up to his feet, realizing the opportunity that has been laid out in front of him now as he begins to set Joso up… GRABBING HIM BY THE HEAD AND POPPING HIM OFF OF THE GROUND BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A HUGE SUPLEX TO THE OUTSIDE! You can tell how much pain Amir is going through right now thanks to the offense that Joso has dished out to him, but he pushes it away in hopes of getting the upper hand which is what looks like what happened right now!

Stew-O: Joso sits up in pain, but before he can do anything to even try and get up to his feet it’s Amir that grabs him by the head and instantaneously rolls him into the ring through the bottom rope before jumping up onto the apron. Joso is beginning to recover slowly but I don’t think he’s going to have the energy left in him to counter what Amir has in mind right here, as he turns and begins to make his way up to the top rope, and we know whenever he does that he has something big in mind. Joso is up to his feet… WHILE AMIR LIFTS OFF OF THE TOP ROPE AND CONNECTS WITH A DIVING HURRICANRANA TO DROP JOSO DOWN TO THE CANVAS! NOW AMIR WASTES ZERO TIME CRAWLING OVER AND GOING FOR THE PIN ATTEMPT!

OOONNNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWWOOOOO!!!!!

TTTTTTHHHHHHHRRRRRRRREREEEE-

Flannery McCoy: BUT JOSO SHOOTS THE SHOULDER UP! AS MUCH AS AMIR EXPECTED OTHERWISE THIS MATCH CONTINUES!

Limmy Monaghan: He knows better than to expect otherwise considering the type of competition he’s up against. But underestimating his competition at the worst possible scenario has always happened to be Amir’s strong suit.

Jake Mercer: Amir does not look happy by this at all, but regardless it doesn’t take away from the fact that this match is going to continue. He’s back up to his feet and grabbing Joso by the head and bringing him up as well, before sending him toward the corner with an Irish whip… BEFORE RUNNING FORWARD AND CONNECTING WITH A EUROPEAN UPPERCUT! Joso is stunned while Amir grabs him by the head and throws him down to the mat, beginning to climb up to the middle rope while at the same time it’s Joso that begins to follow up to his feet trying to fight back with all of his power. BUT BEFORE HE CAN IT’S AMIR THAT LAUNCHES OFF OF THE MIDDLE ROPE AND COMPLETELY LEVELS JOSO WITH A BLOCKBUSTER!

Stew-O: That certainly did the job but the question remains of whether or not whatever Amir has in mind will finish the job. Amir turns around and climbs to the top rope again, looking to continue this absolutely vicious aerial barrage that he has going on right now. Meanwhile, Joso has clutched onto the ropes for dear life and is using all the power that he can to pull himself upward and onto his feet. Amir balances himself while Joso pushes himself off of the ropes and tries to stand on his own two feet… WHILE AMIR GOES FOR ONE MORE BLOCKBUSTER THIS TIME FROM OFF OF THE TOP ROPE-

Flannery McCoy: BUT JOSO WITH A BURST OF ENERGY TAKES A DEAD SPRINT TOWARD AMIR AND JUMPS ONTO THE TOP ROPE BEFORE HE CAN TRY ANYTHING!

Limmy Monaghan: :francis:

Jake Mercer: Amir loses his balance and drops down to a seated position on the top rope, meanwhile Joso maintains his stance and begins to absolutely fire away with punches toward the head of Joso looking to take him off of his game! Amir is trying his best to fight back but his plan is not exactly going to plan right now and that leaves him on desperate defense to try and get himself out of this pickle that he’s in! But Joso already has him primed and ready for something big…

Stew-O: AS HE LAUNCHES UP ONTO HIS SHOULDERS AND SENDS HIM FLYING OFF OF THE TOP ROPE WITH A HUGE FRANKENSTEINER! JUST AS FAST AS HE WENT UP TO THE TOP ROPE AMIR YUSUF CRASHES AND BURNS WHILE JOSO HOOKS THE LEG AND GOES FOR A PIN!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!!

TTTTTTHHHHHHHRRRRRR-

Flannery McCoy: HE TRIED BUT FAILED! AMIR YUSUF BY THE SKIN OF HIS TEETH MANAGES TO KICK OUT OF THE PIN! Joso’s efforts prove ineffective and what has to be running through his mind right now is what is it going to take to finish the job completely in this one.

Limmy Monaghan: Not much, with all of the mistakes that he’s made I don’t expect him to last much longer. But hey, I hope he surprises me and proves me otherwise.

Jake Mercer: Joso is leaning against the ropes, while Amir is down on the ground clutching at his back while trying his best to breathe air into his lungs. The two of them have been through an absolute war in our main event, and right now it’s far from over! Amir is down on the mat still and Joso sees that as an opportunity as he jumps over him and runs toward the ropes… LEAPING OFF OF THEM AND CONNECTING WITH A HUGE SPRINGBOARD MOONSAULT TO KEEP AMIR DOWN BENEATH HIM! Joso isn’t done though as he gets right back up and with this last ounce of energy runs toward the ropes again… GOING FOR ONE MORE SPRINGBOARD MOONSAULT!

Stew-O: BUT AMIR SHOOTS BACK UP TO HIS FEET AND FALLS AGAINST THE ROPES! THIS SENDS JOSO OVER AND TUMBLING DOWN TO THE OUTSIDE AND MY GOD DID THAT HAVE TO HURT! Joso attempted to take a gamble for a second time, but unfortunately that costed him as Amir was one step ahead and managed to foresee what was happening before it could! Joso is more dazed than hurt right now as he falls against the barricade and clutches onto it for dear life, realizing that the tides have been turned and now if he let’s this go any further than Amir Yusuf is going to be one step closer to a victory over him! Amir looks to make sure that happens as he turns around and starts his share of rope running to the opposite side… LEAPING OVER THE TOP ROPE AND LEVELING JOSO WITH AN ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL TOPE CON HILO WHICH TAKES BOTH OF THEM DOWN TO THE MAT WITH AUTHORITY! WHAT A MOVE AMIR YUSUF JUST PULLED OFF!

(Amir gets up and hypes the crowd up out of pure energy with the crowd sharing it and giving off loud cheers in response to what’s been an already great matchup up to this point. He grabs Joso by the head and brings him up to his feet, glaring at Limmy who is on commentary completely ignoring him.)

Limmy Monaghan: What a match this has indeed been ladies and gentlemen, these Elitists haven’t given an inch!

Flannery McCoy: You can say that again, as now this fight spills back into the ring and Amir knows what he has to do. He’s standing on the apron, yelling passionately at Joso to get back up, possibly looking to finish the job and bring this matchup to a decisive end. Joso is giving in and beginning to slowly rise up, and right now especially after everything that he’s been put through, I don’t even know where he is let alone how much more he can take in this match. He’s right back up to his feet, hanging off a thread while he turns to face Amir Yusuf…

Jake Mercer: AMIR ROLLS THROUGH THE ROPES! HE’S GOING FOR ‘WHEN REALITY HITS’! ROLLING CUTTER TO JOSO TO FINALLY PUT A CAP ON THIS MATCH WHILE HE HAS THE CHANCE!

Stew-O: BUT AS SOON AS HE GRABS JOSO BY THE HEAD THE INTERWIRE CHAMPION MANAGES TO SHOVE HIM AWAY! Joso stumbles forward, barely being able to stand up before turning around to face his opponent, ONLY FOR JOSO TO LAUNCH INTO THE AIR AND CONNECT WITH AN ENZUIGIRI TO THE SIDE OF HIS HEAD! JOSO ISN’T DONE THOUGH AS HE TAKES A STEP BACK WHILE AMIR IS DOWN AND LAUNCHES INTO THE AIR BEFORE ABSOLUTELY CRUSHING HIM WITH A RUNNING SHOOTING STAR PRESS! WHAT A MOVE BY JOSO AS HE MANAGES TO ONCE AGAIN TURN THIS MATCH AROUND!

(Joso makes his way toward Amir and snatches him by his hair, tugging him up so he’s in a kneeling position before shoving his face arrogantly.)

Joso: (Off-Mic) … That all you got-

(Before Joso can finish, out of sheer disrespect for his opponent, Amir spits in his face. This causes Joso to take a step back, wiping his face in absolute disgust.)

Amir Yusuf: (Off-Mic) No.

Limmy Monaghan: :francis:!!!

Flannery McCoy: Joso immediately approaches Amir after his disrespect, BUT BEFORE HE CAN EVEN COME CLOSE IT’S AMIR THAT LUNGES FORWARD AND GRABS HIM BY THE WAIST BEFORE TAKING HIM DOWN TO THE MAT! AMIR NOW BEGINS TO SLAM PUNCHES DOWN ON HIS FACE WHILE JOSO BRINGS HIS HANDS UP AND TRIES TO DEFEND THEM! THIS HAS TURNED INTO AN ABSOLUTE BRAWL RIGHT NOW AND JOSO IS GOING TO HAVE ABSOLUTELY NONE OF ITAS HE PUSHES THROUGH AMIR’S OFFENSE BEFORE SHOVING HIM AWAY AND GIVING HIMSELF SOME SPACE SO HE CAN GET BACK UP TO HIS FEET!

Jake Mercer: Joso and Amir get back up to their feet, WHILE JOSO STEPS FORWARD AND GOES FOR A SUPERKICK- But Amir manages to grab the leg just in time and avert taking any more damage! He pushes the leg away, BEFORE LEAPING INTO THE AIR AND ATTEMPTING A HIGH KNEE TO THE HEAD OF AMIR- But that doesn’t work either with Joso managing to side-step that just in the nick of time to move out of the way! Joso then grabs Amir by the head and turns him around, before connecting with a European Uppercut! This takes Amir completely off guard while Joso turns around and runs the ropes… LEAPING INTO THE AIR AND ATTEMPTING TO CONNECT WITH A HURRICANRANA!

Stew-O: NO! AMIR MANAGES TO LAND ON HIS FEET! Amir runs to the ropes… HANDSPRING OFF OF THEM BEFORE LEAPING INTO THE AIR AND GRABBING JOSO BY THE HEAD BEFORE SPIKING HIM DOWN ONTO THE CANVAS WITH A BEAUTIFUL TORNADO DDT! WHAT A BEAUTIFUL MANEUVER BEING EXECUTED IN FULL BY AMIR YUSUF! AND THIS COULD VERY WELL GET HIM ONE STEP CLOSER TO VICTORY!

Flannery McCoy: Amir is once again back up to his feet as he looks toward the corner once again, he’s eyeing it, and I think we know that he has some bad intentions whenever he has one of his vicious top rope moves in mind. Joso is laid out on the mat, exasperated, trying his best to recover, but right now it seems like there’s been too much energy lost in that body of his to keep going. Amir turns around and leaves onto the apron, beginning to make his way up to the top rope now, and positions himself. If he hits this, he could very well be inches away from beating the Interwire Champion in our main event! Amir is setting him up… BEFORE LEAPING OFF OF THE ROPES AND GOING FOR A SHOOTING STAR PRESS TO JOSO-

Jake Mercer: JOSO IS UP! NO WAY! NO WAY! HE CATCHES HIM IN MID-AIR WITH THE ‘CRIMSON PEAK’! STYLES CLASH CONNECTS DROPPING AMIR DOWN TO THE CANVAS AND KNOCKING HIM OUT COLD! OH MY GOD!

Limmy Monaghan: And here it comes…

Stew-O: JOSO BRINGS AMIR UP… BEFORE CONNECTING THIS TIME WITH ‘HEAVEN’S GATE’! PACKAGE PILEDRIVER CONNECTS ONTO AMIR COMPLETELY TAKING HIM OUT WHILE JOSO ROLLS HIM INTO A PIN!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!!

TTTTTHHHHHRRRRRRRRRREEEEEEEEE!!!!!

(DING! DING! DING!)

(‘Trophies’ begins to play up once again while Joso sits up, absolutely exhausted beyond belief while clutching at his head in pain. The referee leaves the ring to take his Interwire Championship before sliding back in and handing it to him while slowly helping him back up to his feet. Joso clutches his Championship close to his chest, before taking it and raising it up into the air before continuing his celebration. Meanwhile, Limmy Monaghan is seen standing up from his position at commentary and giving Joso a standing ovation.)

Stephie Love: Here is your winner… the EAW INTERWIRE CHAMPION!!!!!!!!!! JOSO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Flannery McCoy: Wow, what an ending to an already excellent main event. It was clear the two of them were walking into this one with a point to prove and looked to give it their all in hopes of having their hand raised in what is a very important matchup here tonight on Friday Night Dynasty. But when it was all said and done and the curtains came to a close, there was only one person on top, and that was the Interwire Champion himself.

Stew-O: And that certainly had to bring a smile to the face of Limmy Monaghan tonight, seeing Amir like this. But that doesn’t take away from the fact that Amir put up a hell of an effort against some tough competition. Even after all of that, I’m still adamant in believing that there is going to be some huge things laid out for him in the future, and I just can’t wait to see what that happens to be. Nonetheless, congratulations to Joso on his victory.

(Amir Yusuf is seen slowly recovering at ringside, bringing himself upward into a seated position and staring daggers at Joso inside the ring. He turns his head to the right though and finds himself looking directly above him toward Limmy, who looks to be taking his leave.)

Limmy Monaghan: (Off-Mic) Pathetic.

(Limmy then steps right over him and before Amir can even do anything, he’s gone. Amir balls his hands into a fist and slams the mat while the camera catches a final glimpse of Joso celebrating inside the ring with his Championship while Friday Night Dynasty fades out to elsewhere.)

(A commercial is shown for ‘Marvel Studios’ Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’, in theatres on November 11th, 2022.)

(Friday Night Dynasty fades back into a pan-around shot of the Dakar Arena, with the crowd as excited as ever tonight even with the show evidently beginning to wind down. That doesn’t affect them though, as they get even louder upon the sound of ‘Runnin’ by 21 Savage & Metro Boomin” playing up. The camera then focuses on the entrance area, to reveal Bronson Daniels energetically making his way out from the backstage area and toward the stage. He has a smile on his face as he scans the crowd who welcome the former Interwire Champion with a positive reception. He points around before looking toward the ring, gripping a microphone in his hand while he begins to make his way down the ramp and toward the ring from there.)

Stephie Love: Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome… BRONSON DANIELS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Stew-O: Well this is a man who’s certainly had his hands full these past couple of weeks. After his breakout performance in the Brand Warfare match at Territorial Invasion, Bronson used that momentum to ride into Justified Reckoning in a big way, interrupting World Heavyweight Champion Andre Walker and making it painfully evident that he’s going to be next in line for his title. That led to the two of them getting into a huge brawl, where in the end it was Bronson that managed to lay him out and make a statement at ‘The Kaiser’s’ expense. That was something that certainly didn’t sit well with Andre though, as later in the night he interfered in his main event matchup against Specialists Champion Serenity Valdez, attacking Bronson and completely calling off the match, ending the show standing tall above him.

Flannery McCoy: And by the looks of it, Bronson seems to be coming down to the ring to respond to what’s happened. We knew, just like Andre, Bronson wasn’t going to go down very quietly either, and I don’t think he’s going to settle with speaking his mind tonight. No, I think he wants Andre out in that ring so the two of them can meet face-to-face. All I can say though is that this conflict has been brewing, and I believe a match between the two of them for the World Heavyweight Championship, especially at Justified Reckoning, is inevitable.

Jake Mercer: Yeah, and ‘The Kaiser’ is going to absolutely squash that chump, what’s new? Just when you think the World Heavyweight Champion couldn’t degrade himself any further, he manages to find himself facing the absolute waste of space known as Bronson Daniels. What is he? A charity? No, he’s THE ONE. And if Andre wants to find that one out the hard way, then by all means. Just know I’ll be glad to see him leave again for the greater good. :wow:

Flannery McCoy: Why do you hate that man so much?

Jake Mercer: Well, it all started-

Flannery McCoy: You know what, forget I asked.

(Bronson stops at the bottom rope, once again looking around, before running forward and sliding into the ring. From there he circles around the ring, taking a moment to hype up the already amped-up crowd with a smile on his face, before centering himself in the middle of the canvas. ‘Runnin’ begins to fade away while Bronson takes his microphone and tosses it up in his hand, before bringing it up to his mouth and beginning to speak from there.)

Bronson Daniels: Hello. 🙂👋

(The crowd cheers louder.)

Bronson Daniels: Well, I got a lot to talk about, so I’m not going to take up any more of your time with the theatrics. I’m sure there are people out there that want to hear my response about what happened last week, so you know what, let’s address the elephant in the room right now before we move on to anyone else. I returned here to Friday Night Dynasty just one day from it being the two-month mark with the idea that a confrontation between myself and Andre Walker was bound to happen. No matter how much I tried to rid it from my conscience, even though he seemed beyond the need of myself, I had unfinished business with him. After he beat me for the Interwire Championship, during my long and well-deserved break I had the displeasure of watching him turn my failures into his success, seeing him once again take another Championship of mine and elevate it higher than I could when I held it. I watched him hold the New Breed Championship longer than anyone else, that sucked. I watched him hold the Interwire Championship longer than anyone else, that sucked even more. I watched him win the World Heavyweight Championship and for a short time simultaneously hold it alongside the Interwire Championship, that sucked because I felt more than anyone else that was on me for allowing in my last match in EAW. Yeah, I feel like I’m the one responsible for this current incarnation of Andre Walker, and while other people would try to take credit off of it and leech off of his name, for me? I feel embarrassed, I feel ashamed that because of my failures, this man has been born and been granted the privilege of running amock and being able to do whatever the hell he wants to do.

Bronson Daniels: I’m not saying that based on the notion that it should’ve been me, no, not at all. I’m saying that because I had the opportunity and despite all of that I didn’t have what it takes to finish it before it could even start. I got my shoulders pinned square to the mat with ease and tucked my tail between my legs and walked off, that was the one thing I was hoping to redeem upon my return. And as much as a fancy extravagant match with Ronan Malosi was, and an amazing Brand Warfare performance that will probably be impossible to replicate, it didn’t give me enough to grant me the satisfaction of a job well done. I still have so much more to accomplish, and all of you know that. So it just so happened that the circumstance of Andre Walker trashing Friday Night Dynasty brought me out there to defend not just this brand’s pride, but my pride as well. And guess what, even after all of that, even after being attacked from behind like the coward that he is, I still have zero regrets. Unlike Andre, I would go to war for this brand any single day, I will take a bullet for it. Because this is my brand, and as long as I’m on it then I’m going to put my best foot forward to make sure that you get my best performance on their behalf. As much as he wants to say otherwise, Andre Walker does not give a damn about Dynasty, he couldn’t; like I said last week, he’s in business for himself, and absolutely nothing will change that no matter how hard you try to make yourself believe otherwise. This also brings me to what I’m going to do about it…

Bronson Daniels: I’m not going to sugarcoat it, I’m a sucker for gold. If there was one thing that was immediately on my radar when I came back, it was the World Heavyweight Championship, and with Andre just so coincidentally holding it… call that killing two birds with one stone. Shoot man might as well say three because I think I made it obvious that I want to be on the Justified Reckoning card as well. So let’s do this, shall we? How about Andre Walker come out to the ring right now and stand before me, and we can cut a deal that can satisfy the two of us? Because I know damn well you’re unhappy with what happened last week and if not certainly after what I’ve been saying right here on this microphone. So whenever you’re ready buddy.

(Bronson brings his microphone down to his side before turning over to the stage, the crowd quieting down to a murmur while waiting in anticipation for the World Heavyweight Champion to make his appearance. It isn’t long afterward that ‘Leaving Caladan’ by Hans Zimmer is heard playing up, the crowd absolutely roaring in negativity while the camera goes over to the stage.)

Stew-O: Oh man, things are about to go from zero to a hundred real quick. Andre Walker is here and I’m sure he has some choice words to say.

Flannery McCoy: Wait a damn minute…

(The crowd boos grow even louder, as it’s revealed that Andre isn’t making his entrance, instead, it’s his manager Albert Hitchman! Albert stands cockily on the stage with a microphone in his hands, and right now it’s Bronson that does not look so happy about it. Albert happily struts down the ramp and toward the stage before making his way up the steps and entering the ring, confidently standing face-to-face with Bronson Daniels while ‘Leaving Caladan’ begins to come to a close from there. Albert can only chuckle seeing Bronson’s face of disappointment, shaking his head before beginning to speak.)

Albert Hitchman: What? Did you expect someone else? I’m sorry, Bronson, I’m afraid my client Andre Walker couldn’t find the time in his busy schedule to mess around with you tonight. Though he does take your… claims… very seriously, he has explicitly told me to tell you that he will address it another time. For right now, you have me to vent all your problems toward.

Bronson Daniels: You bozo, does it look like I care about you??? I didn’t call out Albert Hitchman, I called out Andre Walker, and the fact that he doesn’t want to come out here now just shows that he very well might be scared of me after what I did to him on Dynasty.

Albert Hitchman: Ah, yes… when you disrespectfully attacked him after attempting to drag his name through the mud. What Andre Walker did last week in response was simply an act of retaliation, and you coming out here all mad about it, saying that it wasn’t right and *we’re* in fact in the wrong… it seems more like a victimization ploy than anything else. And I’m thoroughly disappointed in that, Bronson, I’d thought you’d know better after the last two matches with Andre and do what’s for your benefit and shut your mouth. But no, you had to continue poking the bear, and now you get the claws.

Bronson Daniels: I don’t want to waste time going back and forth with you, Albert. If things went my way I would’ve had Andre out here so he could face me like a man, but apparently we’re using the excuse of him being busy to justify his absence tonight. But you know what, it’s whatever, regardless, the two of us are going to cross paths again and when we do, he’s sure going to regret ignoring me. Regardless, since you seemed to have come out here to be his personal messenger, tell me, will he at least accept my challenge for the World Heavyweight Championship?

(Albert rubs his temple for a moment before looking back up at Bronson. Right now, it looks like he doesn’t have an answer for him.)

Albert Hitchman: Andre Walker has taken your challenge into consideration-

???: No, no, your job is done, Albert.

(The crowd cheers solely out of relief as the booming voice of the World Heavyweight Champion Andre Walker is heard blasting through the speakers of the arena. Bronson’s look of seriousness turns to a smirk as he immediately turns toward the stage, but what he gets isn’t exactly what he wants to see…)

[SCREENBAR: WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION ANDRE WALKER – LIVE VIA SATELLITE]

(The titantron flashes and shows a luxurious hotel room overlooking the sea, with the camera panning over to show Andre Walker standing on the balcony of his executive suite, with the World Heavyweight Champion propped on a coffee table next to him. He seems to be living his life, and most importantly, nowhere near the arena, which does explain his absence and Albert’s appearance as a replacement. But he’s found some time to show up, and right now he’s looking to address what Bronson has had to say toward him.)

Andre Walker: All bark, no bite; Bronson Daniels you have proven to be a letdown consistently throughout your career, what makes you think a third round against the pound-for-pound greatest Elitist to ever step foot in this company will change anything? In fact, it will only make matters worse, considering all you’re going to get if you hypothetically step into the ring with me is another tally to the loss column. It’s a shame that your mind has been deluded so far to the point that you think that you’re even remotely close to my level, especially considering how obvious it is I’m far beyond the last incarnation of myself that you saw inside that ring… meanwhile you’ve done nothing but float in stagnation for the latter half of your career up to this point. But you know what? Let’s entertain this narrative for a short moment, and at the very least look toward your appeal as to why you deserve a World Heavyweight Championship match against me at Justified Reckoning.

Andre Walker: There’s an argument to be made that because I faced someone like Amir Yusuf at Territorial Invasion, facing you is in the realm of possibilities at this point, and you’re absolutely right. But for the most part, what you said is correct, and that’s the fact that I’m beyond you and frankly everyone else that stands on the same level as you do as a forever mid-carder. Because as fun as it is delivering an obvious result consistently on a platter, I don’t think that satisfies me. You saw my Interwire Championship reign, you saw the type of competition that stepped up to the plate trying to take me down. From main eventers to former World Champions, to even Hall of Famers, all of them fell at my feet and continued to form the building blocks of what was going to be an inevitably prosperous reign at the top. I want that, I want to replicate that feeling again this time on a higher level as the World Heavyweight Champion. That means looking past Bronson Daniels and looking at the big-time players who think they can stand up to me. And while the answer to that claim is obviously not, the fact of the matter is they have more of an argument to be had than you ever did against me.

Andre Walker: Regardless, I realize that if I decline you, you’re just not going to shut up about it. No, despite me warning you about it constantly time after time again, you’re going to continue to persist thinking that you’ll come even a foot away from becoming World Champion at my expense. It’s not happening, but as you see, I don’t have anything in particular allocated for Justified Reckoning. So Bronson, if a match then for my Championship is what you want… then that’s what you get.

(The crowd cheers at this bombshell of a match announcement, meanwhile Bronson is inside the ring looking happy himself, and Albert beside him looking absolutely bewildered at this turn of events right now. Bronson, before Andre can say anything else, brings his microphone up and begins to speak toward him.)

Bronson Daniels: I’m glad to see that we could come to an agreement, Andre, even if you couldn’t make your appearance here tonight. But, there’s a slight problem, and it’s not your fault in the slightest. You see, last week you ended my match against Serenity Valdez unceremoniously, and it has too left me craving more. So seeing as though I find myself unbooked this week, I have to find a way to compensate for that…

(Bronson turns his head toward Albert, who is looking back and forth between him and the titantron video of Andre Walker with absolute fear in his eyes.)

Albert Hitchman: Whoa whoa whoa, we can talk about this-

Stew-O: BRONSON LEAPS INTO THE AIR AND CONNECTS WITH A ‘BATMAN PUNCH’ TO ALBERT’S HEAD!

Jake Mercer: Oh c’mon, how many people are going to attack this poor man? He’s defenseless, leave him alone!

(Andre, sees this on the titantron, and his face immediately drains off any sort of emotion. His expression clearly becomes annoyed, and not looking to watch this any longer, takes the remote to his camera and shuts it off, knowing that there’s nothing he can really do about it. Meanwhile, Bronson has the biggest smirk in the world on his face while he grabs Albert and brings him back up one more time…)

Flannery McCoy: ‘SAVAGE MODE’! LIFTING UNDERHOOK GUTBUSTER CONNECTS! AND I COULD ONLY IMAGINE HOW ANDRE IS GOING TO RESPOND TO THIS ATTACK ON ALBERT HITCHMAN!

(Albert is immediately knocked out, with Bronson dropping down to a kneeling position and grabbing him by his ponytail. He brings his head up, before looking toward the camera directly toward him, with Albert in hand like a trophy before beginning to speak.)

Bronson Daniels: (Off-Mic) AT JUSTIFIED RECKONING, THERE’S GOING TO BE A NEW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION! AND THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING THAT YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT, ANDRE!

(Bronson slams Albert’s head down on the floor before popping back up to his feet, ‘Runnin’ begins to play up once again while Bronson climbs up to the top rope and begins to hype the crowd up. It’s the last shot seen before from there, Friday Night Dynasty slowly begins to fade out completely to black.)
