(Empire Intro Plays)
(Cold show open.)
(“O Fortuna” by Carl Orff erupts from the speakers in the arena and as Madison Kaline walks out onto the stage, she is greeted by massive boos from the crowd. She stands proudly on stage, cupping her ear as if to tell the fans she can’t hear them, egging them to boo her louder. She smiles and raises her Unified Women’s World Championship in the air as she struts down the ramp).
Cori Simmons: Ladies and gentlemen, at this time, please welcome, MAAADISOONNNNNN KAAAAALIIIINNNNNEEEE!
(Madison enters the ring and rests her title on her shoulder. The camera sees her spitting some choice words at Cori who backs away into a corner. Madison steps to Cori and rips the microphone out of her hands).
Madison: Cori, I think you forgot something. What? Huh? Don’t look at me like I’m stupid. What, are you blind? Don’t you see this belt? Don’t you see my championship!? I’ll give you one more chance to do your job right. Make sure when I walk down that ramp and you announce my name that you say it correctly. Go on, say it!
(Madison forces the microphone back into a scared Cori’s hands and poses in the middle of the ring, arms outstretched. Cori slowly raises the microphone to her mouth).
Cori Simmons: Ladies and gentlemen…please welcome, your NEW Unified Women’s World Champion, Madison Kaline!
(The crowd breaks into thunderous boos as Madison soaks up her glory).
(Madison turns to Cori and rips the microphone from her hands again. She commands Cori to exit the ring before addressing the crowd).
Madison: That’s right, you heard her! No need to adjust your television screens or check your volume―it’s me, your new Women’s World Champion! I did it! I told you so! I kicked Stephanie Matsuda right off the throne, exactly like I said I would. Oh, how the mighty fall…
(She smiles wide, and the crowd boos her some more. She adjusts the title on her shoulder, waiting for them to quiet down).
Madison: That’s right. Bask in the essence of your new Women’s Champion. The funny thing about this belt is that it’s been the only thing missing from my already illustrious EAW Career. I’ve already been a Vixen’s Champion, I’m already a Hall of Famer, I am a woman who knows how to get exactly what she wants, I am the Mistress of Death, I am one of the greatest women in the history of EAW. There wasn’t a doubt in anybody’s mind that I was always the true face of Empire―now I just have the cold, hard proof.
(She smirks and raises her title in the air).
Madison: With no thanks to Cloud, no thanks to Astraea, no thanks to the idiots who choose to mock me time and time again, the women’s division is finally returning to its former glory. It’s about time that I start to get some credit for the work I’ve done around here. I am a trailblazer, I am always going to be remembered for spearheading the EAW Women’s Revolution. But…I can’t take all the credit. There are two other women who I know deserve to relish in this victory just as much as I do. Amber, Cleo, I would love it if you guys would join me in celebrating my most recent accomplishment. There’s no one else I’d rather share this moment with.
(Madison stares out to the ramp as the intro to “Mona Lisa” starts up in the arena. Within seconds, we see Amber Keys and Cleopatra walking down the ramp, cheering and applauding for Madison as she bows and models with her title in the center of the ring).
(As “Mona Lisa” dies down, Amber and Cleo each give Madison a tight hug and reach for a microphone, ignoring the negative reception from the crowd).
Cleopatra and Amber: CONGRATULATIONS MADISON!
(More boos from the crowd).
Cleopatra: First, I just want to thank you so much for thinking to invite both of us out here.
Amber: And from two great champions to another―congratulations.
Cleopatra: Amber and I―we know more than anyone what it takes to run a brand, we know what it means to carry a title as weighted as that one, Maddie. We’re so happy that you finally got this opportunity, and that we were able to rid Empire of that coward Matsuda. This is a moment worthy of a grand celebration, Maddie! Don’t you think, Amber? It’s a shame that we have to do it in front of all these disgusting halfwits here in New Orleans. I couldn’t imagine a worse city to do this in, but what are you gonna do, right?
(The crowd responds with massive boos. Fans begin to throw soda cups and food wrappers into the ring).
Amber: Woah, woah, woah, are you kidding me?! (The fans boo her). Show some goddamn respect for your UNIFIED WOMEN’S WORLD CHAMPION!
(Amber leans over the top rope, resting her foot on the bottom rope for support ad she picks up some of the trash and starts to throw it back out to the crowd, only causing them to boo some more).
Amber: SHOW SOME RESPECT FOR YOUR LEGENDS! PUT SOME RESPECT ON OUR NAMES!
(Amber starts cursing and screaming at some fans as the crowd starts to chant).
Crowd: Fuck you, Amber! :clap::clap: Fuck you, Amber! :clap::clap:
(Cleopatra taps Amber on the back, motioning for her to step down from the ropes and calm down. Amber throws a middle finger in the direction of one section of the crowd, and she joins Madison and Cleo at the center once again).
Madison: Amber, it’s okay. It’s no use, you won’t get anywhere with them. They’re too dumb to realize how big of a moment this is, or recognize that this might be the greatest moment of their entire lives! And that’s not our fault. They can’t help themselves. Give them time. It’ll take them a while to recover from the brainwashing that one-hit-wonder Matusda has put them through over the past eight months, but that time is over now. Empire is officially the Madison Kaline show―I am a woman of my word, aren’t I? I’ll show you to never doubt me again, to never question my ability. You’ll all learn sooner or later! I’ll show you to never call me or my friends here anything apart from what we truly are―your Queens.
(Madison drops the microphone and holds her title in the air as “O Fortuna” picks back up and plays throughout the arena. Amber and Cleopatra stand at either side of her, applauding their champion as she leads the way out of the ring).
(Cut to Alicia Amby and SG1 sitting at the commentary desk.)
Alicia Amby: Good evening everyone and welcome to the first night in the reign of our New Unified Womens World champion, the Queen of Death, Madison Kaline. Sg1, Madison wasted no time putting the Empire Universe on notice that she is the new woman in charge around here!
SG1: That’s right, and she’s going to have an even further opportunity to prove it next week when Empire presents Bloodletter, from the Mexico City Arena in Mexico City, Mexico! Throughout the night we will be taking you to the press conference held earlier today announcing the major matches for next week’s big event!
Alicia: In the meantime, however, let’s give the stage to Cori Simmons with the first match of the evening!
(“Roar” — Katy Perry plays as Constance Blevins comes out to the cheering of the crowd! Constance is going down the ramp as she is tagging the hands of the fans on the way to the ring. Every now and then, Constance is looking behind her shoulder to see if Raven Roberts will appear.)
Cori Simmons: The following match is a TRIPLE THREAT MATCH and it’s scheduled for ONE FALL —
Crowd: ONE FALL!!
Cori Simmons: Introducing first, from Baltimore, Maryland she is “The Lioness”, COOOOONSSSSTANNNNNCCCCCE BLEEEEVIIINNNNNNSSSSSSS!!
Alicia Amby: Here is a woman, who has been in Raven Roberts’ crosshairs. Apparently, she is has been looking over her shoulder constantly because you can never be so sure when Raven will appear and well… POP her.
SG1: Constance Blevins is a workhorse, but the thought of her being on alert for Raven might hurt her chances in this match! I hope, I’m proven wrong, but this might not end well for Constance!
(“Raise Hell” — Dorothy plays as the crowd stands up as Daisy Thrash walks out with a confident look on her face. She goes down the ramp and tags the hands of the fan on her way to the ring.)
Cori Simmons: Introducing her opponents, first, from Seattle, Washington, she is “The Razorblade Snowflake”, DAAAAAAISSSSSSSSSYYYYYYYYY THHHHRASSSSSSSSHHHHHHHH!!
SG1: Daisy Thrash has been sick of watching the Empire brand go upside down thanks to women like Madison Kaline, Amber Keys and Cleopatra! She has been one of the three women who has helped Stephanie Matsuda out with Cleopatra. She came to Monica Vaughan’s aid last week when it seemed like Madison, Amber and Cleopatra were going to go after Monica! It seems like Daisy has been doing her role in sticking up for people that need it to the most!
Alicia Amby: Daisy is not afraid to hurt herself if it means that these people do not get the last laugh! We could use someone like Daisy to be a champion one day!
(“Furious 2” — Niklas Gustavsson plays as the crowd stays standing for Clara Lovelace, who comes out with the Young Lioness Cup. Coach Cameron Ella Ava is by her side as Clara raises the Cup high in the air.)
Cori Simmons: Introducing next, being accompanied to the ring by Cameron Ella Ava, from Roswell, New Mexico, she is the Young Lioness Cup Holder, CLARRRRRRAAAAAAAAAAAAA LOOOOOVVVVEELAAAAACCCCCCCCEEEE!!
Alicia Amby: Clara Lovelace was a victim to Sazae Hangaku last week after being hit with the exposed turnbuckle. Clara would love to get a victory in the bag and against some of Empire’s best and rising talents, it may be one of the more impressive victories and if she can get it without any help, it may prove Consuela Rose Ava wrong.
SG1: I think Consuela is almost expecting that her words got to Clara last week and Clara puts all of that into action, but we’ll see!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
SG1: The three women exchange looks at one another! They are looking to see, who will deliver the first punch —
(“Make a Move” — Icon for Hire plays as the crowd explodes in boos. Raven Roberts walks with a smirk on her face. The New Breed Championship is on her shoulder as she is looking at the crowd booing her and laughs before making her way down to the ring.)
Alicia Amby: What in the world is Raven Roberts doing out here? How does this match concern her whatsoever?
SG1: I think Raven may be looking to send a message to Remi McQueen using her last remaining Pride member standing…
(Raven Roberts makes it to the announcer’s table and sits down next to SG1. She gets her headset on before looking at the two women beside her.)
Raven Roberts (looking at the women in the ring): Don’t mind me! I’m just wanting to POP on by and see this match!
(Constance Blevins is looking over her shoulder as it seems like she had just seen a ghost. Raven Roberts playfully waves as Constance has forgotten for that moment that she has a match to be apart of.)
Alicia Amby: The first triple threat of the night begins as it looks like Constance Blevins has not taken her eyes off of you, Raven. I think you may have startled the woman. Constance turns her head around as is met with Daisy Thrash, who uses her shoulder to thrust Constance against the turnbuckle! Daisy gives Constance a few turnbuckle thrusts before getting her arm and connecting with a whip to the other corner! Constance runs to Daisy and delivers a high knee to Daisy! DAISY’S HEAD GOES BACK BEFORE CONSTANCE GRABS DAISY’S HEAD BEFORE GOING FOR A BULLDOG FROM THE SECOND TURNBUCKLE! DAISY GOES DOWN! MEANWHILE, CLARA LOVELACE GETS HERSELF INVOLVED IN THE MATCH WITH A DROPKICK TO CONSTANCE FACE! IN RESULT, CONSTANCE GOES DOWN! CLARA GOES FOR THE COVER THERE, BUT CONSTANCE KICKS OUT AND PREVENTS ANY PIN ATTEMPT FROM BEING MADE! CLARA AND CONSTANCE GET BACK TO THEIR FEET AT THE SAME TIME, BUT CLARA CONNECTS WITH A KICK TO THE STOMACH! CONSTANCE MANAGES TO CATCH CLARA’S RIGHT LEG BEFORE A KICK IS CONNECTED! CLARA CONNECTS WITH AN ENZUIGIRI AND KNOCKS CONSTANCE TO THE SIDE! CLARA GETS HERSELF BACK UP QUICKLY AND GETS CONSTANCE UP AND WHIPS HER TO THE CORNER! CLARA RUNS AND CONNECTS WITH A BACK ELBOW THAT KNOCKS THE LIONESS DOWN!
SG1: Clara Lovelace pulls Constance Blevins back to her feet before connecting with a powerful spinebuster! Daisy Thrash tries to go after Clara, but Clara connects with a spinebuster on Daisy as Daisy falls on Constance! Clara Lovelace finds herself to be the only woman standing in the match! Clara is jumping and getting all excited, but Cameron Ella Ava is trying to tell her to focus and keep the momentum up! Clara goes back to a serious look on her face as she picks up Daisy up! Constance rolls to one of the sides of the ring to recover for the time being! Daisy is back on her feet as Clara gets Daisy up and connects with a snap suplex! Clara goes for the first cover in this match!
Jesse Carlton: ONE!
Alicia Amby: Daisy Thrash kicks out quickly! Daisy has been showing some aggression in her matches these past few weeks! I wonder if this is something that we’ll see in this match? Clara gets Daisy to sit up straight before getting herself back up! CLARA LOVELACE TAKES A FEW STEPS BACK BEFORE RUNNING TOWARDS DAISY AND CONNECTING WITH A RUNNING SPINNING BACK ELBOW TO DAISY’S BACK! DAISY CRINGES HER BACK IN PAIN AS CLARA GETS IN FRONT OF DAISY BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A RUNNING CLOTHESLINE TO A SEATED DAISY! DAISY GOES DOWN BEFORE CLARA GETS HERSELF BACK UP! CLARA CONNECTS WITH A SERIES OF RAPID ELBOW DROPS! WITH EACH ELBOW DROP, CLARA IS GETTING MORE EXCITED AND PUMPED UP! CLARA DELIVERS ONE LAST RAPID ELBOW DROP BEFORE GETTING HERSELF BACK UP! CLARA IS MET WITH A CLOTHESLINE FROM CONSTANCE! CLARA GETS HERSELF BACK UP BEFORE CONSTANCE CONNECTS WITH ANOTHER CLOTHESLINE! CLARA GETS BACK RIGHT AWAY BEFORE CONSTANCE CONNECTS WITH A SWITCHBLADE KICK! CLARA BENDS DOWN FORWARD BEFORE CONSTANCE CONNECTS WITH A
VICIOUS HEADBUTT! CLARA DOES NOT GO DOWN BEFORE CONSTANCE CONNECTS WITH ANOTHER HEADBUTT BEFORE BOUNCING FROM THE ROPES AND CONNECTING WITH A BOOT TO CLARA’S SKULL, KNOCKING HER FORWARD IN THE PROCESS!
SG1: Constance is looking back at you, Raven!
(Raven gives a sinister smile before playfully waving at Constance Blevins, who turns away from Raven. Not wanting to look her in the eyes before setting her attention on Clara .)
Raven Roberts: I don’t care for either Clara or Daisy, but Constance is the only one I give a damn about at the moment. Constance looks like she is trying to shift her attention to Clara Lovelace in the ring! Constance sees that Clara is on her knees before running and connecting with a knee strike to Clara, who goes back! Constance gets Clara by her face and connects with a bunch of knees to Clara, almost like she is a rabid animal! At least, Constance stops kneeing Clara and follows that up with a sidekick to Clara’s chin! Clara is going down!
SG1: Daisy Thrash finds herself back in this match out of nowhere with an Anarchy in the WA, the thesz press into some mounted fists! Daisy’s punches are looking quite aggressive as Constance is failing to block all of these punches! Daisy gets herself back up and Constance soon after before grabbing Constance and taking her to the ropes! Daisy connects with a springboard armdrag and Constance goes around! Daisy follows that up with a spinning back fist! Constance stumbles back a bit before Daisy connects a dropkick that sends Constance to the ropes! Daisy runs towards Constance in the ropes! Constance manages to throw Daisy over her head! DAISY IS FLIPPED AROUND TO THE APRON! CONSTANCE TURNS HERSELF AROUND AS SHE IS MET WITH A FIST FROM DAISY AS SHE STUMBLES BACK! DAISY GOES TO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE AS SHE LOOKS BACK AT CONSTANCE BEFORE JUMPING OFF AND CONNECTING WITH A MISSILE DROPKICK! CONSTANCE GOES DOWN INSTANTLY BEFORE DAISY GETS CONSTANCE BLEVINS IN POSITION FOR THE DAISY CHAIN! THE MUTA LOCK FROM THE RAZORBLADE SNOWFLAKE! CONSTANCE IS TRYING TO ROLL HERSELF TO HER STOMACH, BUT DAISY CONNECTS WITH STOMP TO CONSTANCE’S BACK BEFORE ROLLING HER OVER! THE DAISY CHAIN IS CONNECTED! CONSTANCE BLEVINS IS TRYING TO SCRAMBLE FOR THE BOTTOM ROPE! CONSTANCE IS IN TROUBLE!
Raven Roberts (sarcastic): Oh no…
Alicia Amby: Clara Lovelace with the knee drop on Daisy Thrash! I think Clara may have saved Constance from having to tap out! Coach Cam is applauding CLARA FOR THE SAVE BEFORE TELLING HER TO KEEP IT UP! CLARA ROLLS HERSELF BACK UP TO HER FEET! DAISY IS SLOWLY RISING BACK TO HER FEET, BUT CLARA CONNECTS WITH SOME AXE HANDLES WHICH KNOCKS DAISY DOWN BEFORE SHE IS ABLE TO GET HERSELF BACK UP! ONCE AGAIN, CLARA CONNECTS WITH AN AXE HANDLE THAT KNOCKS DAISY DOWN! DAISY GETS UP AND CLARA CONNECTS WITH ANOTHER AXE HANDLE! DAISY GOES DOWN! DAISY GETS BACK UP BEFORE CLARA CONNECTS WITH A DROPKICK! CLARA GETS BACK UP TO HER FEET BEFORE GETTING DAISY BACK UP AS WELL! CLARA GETS DAISY BY ONE OF HER HANDS BEFORE WHIPPING HER TO THE CORNER! CLARA GETS HER HANDS UP AND SPINS THEM AROUND BEFORE RUNNING AND CONNECTING WITH A BACK ELBOW TO DAISY THRASH! DAISY GOES DOWN TO A SEATED POSITION BEFORE CLARA APPROACHES DAISY BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A SERIES OF STOMPS TO THE RAZORBLADE SNOWFLAKE!
Jesse Carlton: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FIVE! THAT’S ENOUGH, CLARA!
SG1: Clara has her hands up where the official can see them before backing away from Daisy! Clara should know better than trying to get herself disqualified! Daisy is trying to get herself back up to a standing position! Clara goes back and grabs Daisy from the corner! Clara throws a few forearm shots before whipping Daisy to the other corner! Daisy tries to hold onto the corner as Clara Lovelace runs and connects with a clothesline! DAISY THRASH MOVES TO THE SIDE AS CLARA COLLIDES TO THE CORNER! NO! CLARA HOLDS ONTO THE CORNER BEFORE SHE COULD COLLIDE! DAISY USES THAT AS AN ADVANTAGE BEFORE HOISTS CLARA UP BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A DREAM ON! THE SCHOOLGIRL LIFTED INTO A DEADLIFT SITOUT POWERBOMB ON CLARA AS DAISY HOLDS IT THERE FOR A COVER!
Jesse Carlton: ONE! TWO —
Alicia Amby: Constance Blevins breaks up the pin fall! She gets Daisy up before exchanging a look at you, Raven!
Raven Roberts: I’m still here, Connie! Don’t you worry!
Alicia Amby: Constance Blevins manages to get Daisy up! Clara Lovelace rolls underneath the ring ropes and recovers for the time being! Constance connects with a back kick to Daisy Thrash! Constance right away goes for the swinging neckbreaker! DAISY IS DOWN AS CONSTANCE GETS DAISY BACK UP BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A SERIES OF SHORT ARMED CLOTHESLINES! DAISY IS DOWN AGAIN AS CONSTANCE GIVES OUT A ROAR BEFORE LOOKING RAVEN ROBERTS WAY BEFORE GETTING DAISY BACK UP! CONSTANCE HAS DAISY IN POSITION FOR THE LIONESSPRIDE! THE SWINGING LEG HOOK FIREMAN’S CARRY SLAM CONNECTS ON DAISY THRASH AS CONSTANCE GOES FOR THE COVER!
Jesse Carlton: ONE! TWO! THR–
SG1: Clara Lovelace breaks up the pin at the last second! Daisy rolls out of the ring to cover for the time being! Clara gets Constance back up to her feet before using her feet and springboarding from the ropes! Clara with a falling reverse ddt on Constance Blevins! No! Constance is able to get out of the way! Constance gets Clara back up on her feet before connecting with a back kick! CONSTANCE GRABS CLARA BY HER PIGTAIL BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A SERIES OF HEADBUTTS! SLOWLY, YOU CAN SEE CLARA GETTING DOWN TO ONE KNEE BEFORE CONSTANCE CONNECTS WITH A SUPERKICK THAT TAKES CLARA DOWN! CONSTANCE DECIDES TO GIVE A GROWL BEFORE PICKING CLARA LOVELACE UP! RAVEN ROBERTS IS SLOWLY RISING UP FROM HER CHAIR AS HER EYES HAVE NOT GONE AWAY FROM CONSTANCE! CONSTANCE IS LOOKING AT RAVEN BEFORE GETTING CLARA UP TO HER FEET BEFORE PICKING UP CLARA UP AND CONNECTING WITH THE LIONESSTOUCH, THE CRADLE DDT CONNECTS AS CONSTANCE IS LOOKING AT RAVEN! CONSTANCE GOES FOR THE COVER AND HER EYES HAVE NOT GONE AWAY FROM RAVEN!
Jesse Carlton: OOOOOOONE!! TWOOOOOOO!!
Alicia Amby: Daisy Thrash slides underneath to break up the pin!
Jesse Carlton: THRREEEEEEE!!
SG1: It’s too late! Constance Blevins wins!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
(“Roar” plays as Constance Blevins stands on her knees. Clara Lovelace rolls out of the ring in disappointment as Cameron Ella Ava is holding and checking on her. Daisy Thrash smacks her hands against the apron in disappointment that she was too late on breaking the pinfall. Constance gets back up as the official raises her hand in victory.)
Cori Simmons: The winner of this match, COOOONSSSSSSTAAAANCCCCEEEEEEEE BLEEEEVIIIINNNNNNSSSSSSSS!!
Raven: Well look at that.
Alicia Amby: What an competitive Triple Threat Match! These women brought everything to this match! My heart breaks for Clara Lovelace, who really wanted to get back in the winning streak after her loss last week, but she went in this match and gave it a great fight! Daisy Thrash brought some aggression into the match that was never seen, but she just entered the ring a second too late and you can tell that she’s not happy with that result!
(Daisy begins to walk up the ramp, disappointed. Clara struggles to stand on the outside as Constance celebrates in the ring)
SG1: Constance Blevins is standing tall at the moment! Wait! WHAT? NO!
(Raven has removed her headset and slid into the ring with her title. Constance doesn’t see until she turns around and all remaining color fades from her face)
Alicia: Raven just walking towards Constance with that evil grin of hers! We’ve seen this too many times! Constance puts her hands up to fight but she looks scared to death!
(Raven walks forward and Constance begins to take steps backwards until she bumps into the corner, trapped. Raven walks up and grabs Constance’s face in one hand and holds it to look at it. Raven drops her title onto the apron and runs her free hand up high through her hair)
Raven (off-mic): Such a shame. You’re such a pretty girl too.
(Constance looks frozen in fear. But Daisy Thrash is back at the ring apron and eyeing Raven. Raven looks at Daisy with that same sadistic smile)
Raven (off-mic): This doesn’t concern you, Daisy. She’s not one of yours.
(Daisy watches closely as Raven turns her attention back to Constance, her face still in Raven’s hand. Raven laughs at Constance’s fear and releases her face)
Raven (off-mic): Don’t worry sweetheart. Today’s not the day.
(Raven pats Constance on the head and slides out of the ring, grabbing her title as she goes. She walks up the ramp backwards waving at all the girls in the ring with that malicious smile. Clara finally makes it to her feet and Daisy moves inside to check on Constance, who looks like she’s about to vomit)
(Commercial plays for Nike featuring Astraea Jordan)
(Cameron Ella Ava and Clara Lovelace are seen walking backstage. Clara has a disappointed look on her face following her defeat. Two weeks in a row, this young woman has suffered defeat and you can tell that it was beginning to shake her confidence a bit.)
Clara Lovelace: I’m sorry about losing again, Coach. Constance brought her A-game tonight and I should have been more prepared.
Cameron Ella Ava: No need to apologize. We’ll find a way to bounce back. Do not let these losses get the best out of you. It happens to the best of us. The next time, you’ll get your victory.
Clara Lovelace: I feel like you say that everytime and I always find myself in defeat. Last week, it was thanks to an exposed turnbuckle that I lost to Sazae Hangaku. This week, it was because I was the weakest woman in the match. I know, I can win, Cam. You do not understand my drive and passion to be the best. I want to prove that I am deserving of this young Lioness Cup, but people just look at me as a nerd and I want them to look at me as someone who can be the next Specialists Champion.
Cameron Ella Ava: I’ve suffered my own defeats in the past. Even those hard to swallow, but I bounce back and sometimes, stronger than ever. There is no doubt that this will happen to you. We’ll go back and train harder, we’ll look back at the mistakes you made and we’ll return better.
???: This is so sad.
(The camera goes to Consuela Rose Ava, who was rolling her eyes at the altercation between her sister and her partner.)
Cameron Ella Ava: Now, is not the time, Consuela.
Consuela Rose Ava: I just wanted to come by and say that “I told you so” to Clara! Clara Lovelace cannot win a match with her own skills. She couldn’t defeat Sazae Hangaku last week because as much of annoying bitch she was to face this week, she did what she needed to do to win. Sure, I didn’t appreciate that she injured your eye, but Sazae played her cards right and she won. Even though Constance didn’t need to do that stuff to win, she proved that your skills weren’t enough to defeat her. And, what happens when you have your lovely partner, Consuela helping you out? What happens, Clara? Oh yeah, you win! You hold a victory over the Specialists Champion thanks to me. I thought that something would finally click with you and you’d follow on my footsteps, but no. Still resulting to your own ways. You still want to do the right thing to win, but when will you realize that you need to take matters to your own hands if you want to be successful on Empire?
Clara Lovelace: Consuela, I don’t want to talk about this.
Consuela Rose Ava: But, we need to talk about this! Clara, we may get in little arguments, but I still care for you. I want you to succeed on Empire. You may not understand why I am doing the things I have been doing. I don’t like what I’ve done, but I feel that this is the right way to get things done. Remember when I said that it’s time when we take matters to our own hands?
Clara Lovelace: Yeah, you made sure to make that point a few weeks back.
Consuela Rose Ava: I am going to help you get your victories back.
Clara Lovelace: I don’t want you cheating on my behalf, Consuela.
Consuela Rose Ava: I’m not going to do that. I went to Flannery McCoy and demanded a spot for you on the Bloodletter card. Guess what? You got it!
(Cameron Ella Ava and Clara Lovelace smile and grin at each other before looking at Consuela Rose Ava.)
Cameron Ella Ava: How thoughtful of you, Consuela. What’s the catch?
(Clara Lovelace is smiling as Consuela continues to speak.)
Consuela Rose Ava: It’s not just one opponent. It’s two opponents, who Clara has lost to these past two weeks. Sazae Hangaku and Constance Blevins. Clara, you have a chance to kill two birds with one stone at Bloodletter, if you defeat these two women in a Triple Threat Hardcore Match!
(The crowd is shown cheering as Clara Lovelace’s smile is wiped away from her instantly.)
Consuela Rose Ava: I know, you’re speechless! I’ll give you time to process everything!
(Consuela Rose Ava is smiling as she leaves the camera shot. Clara Lovelace is looking back at her Coach with an unsure look on her face.)
Clara Lovelace: OMG, I’M GOING TO DIE!
(Clara Lovelace hugs Cameron Ella Ava for comfort as Cameron realizes that she may have a situation in her hands.)
(Camera opens on the commentary desk)
Alicia: Earlier this past Monday night, the Empire roster took part of a house show in Southaven, Mississippi. During the show, Consuela Rose Ava faced off with Specialists Champion, Tyler Wolfe. And as it was covered earlier this week by Kathy Kush and Sofia Clarke on EAW Fight Grid, during the match, the referee was knocked out and Consuela Rose Ava took advantage by assaulting Tyler with a chair and stealing the victory. After the match, Consuela declared herself the number one contender and declared the Specialists Championship as her personal championship due to her history with it.
SG1: She was calling out Flannery McCoy for a title match when Tyler Wolfe ran backstage seeking vengeance. The two brawled through the backstage area until both women were left bloody and Tyler was unconscious. Earlier today, Flannery McCoy held a press conference to discuss the upcoming Bloodletter show and discuss the matches there. She also took time to discuss the incident that the EAW universe has used Social Media to describe as #WolfeHunt.
(Camera fades to the media room where Flannery McCoy stands at the center podium with Kendra Shamez to her right and Stephon Hunte to her left. Tyler Wolfe sits to the far right with the Specialists Championship in front of her. Tyler has a fresh bandage on her forehead and taps her foot beneath the table. She appears to be… mildly perturbed.)
Flannery: Thank you everyone for coming. It’s been something of a chaotic week in the lead up to Bloodletter. But today we are here to settle everything. We intend to begin tonight with the Specialists Championship. After recent events, there has been a lot to be considered. But given the instigation of the #WolfeHunt incident happened in the ring, therefore we will be settling it in the ring.
(Tyler has a look of sheer rage on her face)
Flannery: Ladies and Gentlemen, the woman who will challenge Tyler Wolfe for the Specialists Championship… Consuela Rose Ava.
(Consuela walks out, waves and smiles at the cameras, and takes her seat to the far left.)
Flannery: Is there anyone with a question?
Tyler: Yeah. I have a goddamn question. This bitch cheated, used a chair while the ref was out, and beat one of your champions over the head with it until she was unconscious. And you’re going to reward her for that?
Consuela: Tyler, I simply did what was necessary and got the win. I pinned the Specialists Champion one on one. That makes me the number one contender.
Tyler: Oh you’re a number one something that’s for—
Flannery: OK. ENOUGH. Tyler, I know you’re upset. But Consuela did win the match on paper. She has a claim, shaky as it may be. But Consuela, you will be getting your match, although it won’t be a singles match. As the Specialists Champion, Tyler will be selecting the match type.
(Tyler taps her foot for a moment and then smiles)
Tyler: Yeah… I get to name the match. And if it takes a chair for you to beat me, then I’ll do the same to you. We’re having a Chairs Match.
(Consuela visibly groans as Flannery raises her eyebrows)
Flannery: Okay. Interesting choice. A Chairs Match it is.
Consuela: Fine. That’s the way it is. But after Bloodletter, that championship is coming back home to me, where it belongs. I’m taking MY championship back from you and your overblown bullshit.
(Tyler stands up)
Tyler: I’m going to break your stick figure little body.
(Consuela stands and locks eyes with her)
Consuela: You’ll try. You’ll fail.
Flannery: Okay. Ladies. I’m going to ask you both to take exits in separate directions. Let’s save it for next week.
(The two stare for another moment before Consuela smiles and walks off the stage and out the press door. Tyler grabs her championship and walks out through the curtain)
(Commercial for Chocolate Cake featuring Xander Payne)
(Cori Simmons stands in the center of the ring to announce the next match.)
Cori SImmons: The following contest is set for one fall! Introducing first, from Barcelona Spain, The Perfectionist, Consuela Rose Ava!
(“Fire” by BTS begins as Consuela makes her way to the ring, receiving a louder, if more mixed, reaction than usual.)
Alicia Amby: Consuela has certainly been on a run lately, declaring herself number one contender for the Specialists title after using a chair to beat Tyler Wolfe at a house show, Consuela believes that people have started to forget her and, to be honest, I think she may be right!
SG1: She’s the only two time Specialists Champion! How could anyone ever forget her? Consuela has been trying to use tough love to teach Clara Lovelace and in the eyes of some has started to go to far.
Cori Simmons: Introducing her opponent, from Yomi-no-Kuni, Japan, The Neon Oni, Sazae Hangaku!
(‘I Am The Animal’ hits as the spotlight falls upon Sazae Hangaku, who licks her lips as she stares first at her dancers then at the audience before making her way down to the ring, long kimono billowing out behind her before sliding into the ring, Kanji Rocca cowering in her wake the whole way up and clearly praying for Sazae to not attack anyone she shouldn’t.)
Alicia: Accompanied by Kanji and Runko, Sazae has been a bit of a thorn in the side of Consuela and Clara these last few weeks. Tonight she’s looking to make her mark before heading into Bloodletter, an event Sazae would seem particularly suited for!
SG1: Sazae is a terrifying competitor who challenged Consuela tonight to prove she was
Capable of beating Consuela as well as Clara. Often overlooked, Sazae is out here to make a point tonight!
(Cori exits the ring as the official checks both competitors and calls for the bell.)
DING! DING! DING!
Alicia Amby: Sazae charges at Consuela, who ducks under the ropes!
Consuela (off mic): Descanso!
Alicia: Consuela calling for a rope break already, wanting to halt the momentum of Sazae, who is being held back by the referee. Consuela waves her hand, indicating the official to get Hangaku back so she can get ready to begin. Once Sazae is restrained, Consuela indicates that she is finally ready, and the two tie up! Irish whip from the Neon Oni and Consuela hits the ropes…Sazae leaps over the charging Ava then catches her in the stomach with a back kick, stopping Consuela dead in her tracks. Moving quickly into position, Sazae locks her arms around the waist of the Perfectionist and execute a very nice German suplex, planting Consuela into the mat!
SG1: Looking to follow up, Sazae pulls Consuela to her knees…she starts driving kicks into Ava’s chest! “Vamo Alla Flamenco!” Sazae looks to follow it up with a super kick…NO! Consuela bends backward on her knees, Matrix-like, and dodges the kick! Ava with the quick roll up on the disoriented Hangaku!
Sazae powers out before the three count! Consuela meets the Neon Oni with a forearm to the jam, stunning her long enough for Ava to take Hangaku’s arm…BACKFLIP ARM DRAG! What a show of athleticism! Sazae rolls out of the ring, looking to break Consuela’s momentum, but Ava sees the opportunity…suicide dive from Ava! NO! Sazae was baiting her! She managed to use the apron to assist in pushing herself up and delivering a kick Consuela’s head as she comes through the ropes! Ava collapses to the mat in a heap as Sazae rolls into the ring to break the count, then immediately back out to pull Consuela to her feet then roll her back into the ring.
Alicia: Consuela seems to be still loopy headed from the kick she received. Sazae rolls her to her back and makes the pin.
KICKOUT FROM AVA!
Consuela isn’t finished yet! Sazae snarls at the referee as she powers Consuela to her feet but Ava grabs the top of Hangaku’s head and drops to the mat, executing a jawbreaker! Sazae falls to the mat and Consuela climbs to the middle turnbuckle and waits for Hangaku regains her stance…MISSILE DROPKICK! Sazae is shotgunned back toward the far corner as Consuela kips up, now fired up, runs to the corner and starts kicking a mudhole in Sazae! The Neon Oni catches a foot, however, and twists, sending Consuela to the mat with a modified dragon screw!
SG1: Consuela is holding her knee as Sazae pulls herself to a standing position, the Neon Oni rolls forward, to the center of the ring, and looks to be setting Consuela up…SCREAM IN SILENCE! The mandible claw is sunk in deep! Consuela is flailing to escape! The referee is moving into position to check on Ava…CONSUELA SEES THE OFFICIAL AND PUSHES SAZAE BACK INTO THEM! The official is down! Sazae releases the hold and yells at Rocca to assist the official! As he is, Consuela backs off and gathers her composure. The Neon Oni turns to admonish her manager who is helping the referee, but not quickly enough for Hangaku, Consuela sees an opportunity…La Rodilla de la Muerte! The running knee catches Sazae in the back of the head! Ava tosses Rocca out onto his head then covers Sazae as the referee slowly gets into position!
DING! DING! DING!
(The official groggily calls for the bell as “Fire” by BTS begins to play.)
Alicia: Consuela was caught in a dangerous position, but used her ring awareness to get out of it!
(Cut to commercial for next week’s Battleground, featuring the EAW Tag Team Grand Prix)
(Cut to backstage and Empire Tag Team Champions, The Jaded Hearts, Sienna Jade and Kassidy Heart, are standing at the door to the office of Kendra Shamez. Sienna looks over at Kassidy and gives her a nod before knocking on the door. After a second it opens to reveal not Kendra but a man in a three piece suit standing in the doorway. He’s giving the Jaded Hearts a broad smile that seems at the same time welcoming and foreboding. He extends his hand to Sienna.)
???: Pleased to meet you, won’t you guess my name?
(Sienna scoffs at him and ignores his hand.)
Sienna: How the fuck would I do that? You’re not wearing a name tag, stupid!
(The smile from the man doesn’t break.)
???: Oh, well, my apologies, Sienna, it was just a joke anyway. I’m Stephon Hunte, representative from Fox. I’ve been…helping Kendra here with running Empire in a way that works best for Fox. Please, don’t let me interrupt, I’m just here to observe.
(Rolling their eyes, Sienna and Kassidy step around Stephon and walk up to Kendra’s desk.)
Sienna: Kendra, this is bullshit! Kass and I have been tag champions since Pain for Pride and we’ve had how many feature matches? Do you even give a shit about these belts, or us? Is it because we’re not dykes or whores like the rest of the roster? You’re not dealing with the shitty Pride who can’t even beat Raven, or Clara and Consuela who are barely even a team anymore, we’re the Jaded Hearts, and we’re a big fucking deal…if you don’t see it, I’m sure another GM of another brand will.
(Kendra holds up her hands to calm Sienna.)
Kendra: Sienna, please, calm down! You’re right, Flannery hasn’t done much with the tag belts lately, and that was a mistake. You want a match at Bloodletter? Fine, how abo –
(Stephon steps forward cutting Kendra off.)
Stephon: I think you two would pair up nicely with Amber Keys and Cleopatra, don’t you, Kendra?
(Kendra falls silent, then nods.)
Kendra: Yeah, no, that was gonna be my suggestion. The Jaded Hearts face off against Amber and Cleopatra for the Empire Tag Titles! It’s going to be one of the marquee matches on the card, Sienna, Kassidy, you two are valuable members of the roster, and I –
(Flannery McCoy’s voice cuts her off from the doorway.)
Flannery: That’s a good match, Kendra…but it’s missing something. Seems like in the last few weeks we’ve had another team step up and start making people take notice, and since I, not you, am the General Manager of Empire, I’m going to add Astraea Jordan and Daisy Thrash to the tag title match.
(Sienna slams her fist on the desk hard causing Kassidy and Kendra to jump.)
Sienna: Why? Because you want to stack the odds against us? You can’t wait until we drop these titles to your cronies so you can parade them in front of everyone, well fuck that and fuck you! We’re the best team in the whole company and we’ll prove it at Bloodletter!
(The Hearts go to leave, but are stopped by Flannery.)
Flannery: I wasn’t finished. Since the show is called Bloodletter, and since you two are so confident…how about this: The Jaded Hearts versus Amber Keys and Cleopatra versus Astraea Jordan and Daisy Thrash…T.L.C. match. You ladies wanted a marquee, featured match? You got one.
(Flannery steps aside as Sienna storms. Kassidy follows but slows long enough to give Flannery an icy stare.)
Kassidy: You’re the fucking worst, Flannery, everyone knows it.
(She follows her partner as Flannery sighs and approaches the desk. Stephon clears his throat.)
Stephon: Ms. McCoy, I wonder if you might give me and Kendra a little time? I have some things to discuss with her, and well, time is money afterall…
(He gives Flannery an apologetic smile. McCoy rolls her eyes and looks to Kendra.)
Flannery: Okay, I’ll be around, so just come find me when you’re done here. We’ve got to talk about Bloodletter.
(She walks out of the office, pulling the door closed behind her as Stephon steps in front of Kendra’s desk.)
Stephon: Now, Ms. Shamez, let’s talk about your career and what I can do to help further it…
(The camera fades out)
(Commercial plays for Wicked Games)
Camera opens again on the commentary desk)
Alicia: One of the most heated feuds in recent Empire history has been Raven Roberts versus Remi Skyfire. The two have brought each other a number of injuries and pain, both physical and personal, over the last seven months since they first faced off on Empire.
SG1: For the first time on an EAW FPV, the two will face off in one on one singles action at Bloodletter. Flannery McCoy made a hellacious declaration earlier today regarding the match.
(Camera fades back to the press conference where Flannery McCoy stands at the podium with Kendra Shamez and Stephon Hunte on either side of her. Raven Roberts sits to the left with a big smile on her face and the New Breed Championship on the table in front of her. Remi McQueen sits to the right with a look of frustration on her face)
Flannery: Next we will address the New Breed Championship match, in fact the first New Breed Championship match to occur as an Empire exclusive match, showing the historic growth and development of the athletes on the Empire roster.
(Stephon visibly rolls his eyes as Flannery motions toward the belt. Raven smiles as if Flannery had motioned toward her.)
Raven: Yes, Flannery. Thank you. I feel a deep sense of pride as the first woman to ever hold this title. But as I’ve told you, I don’t appreciate being defined by that fact. I’m the greatest—
Remi: The greatest champion in blah blah blah. Do you hear yourself? This isn’t about you. Nothing is about you. Get your head out of your ass.
Raven: I could put my foot in yours.
Flannery: NO!!! I WILL NOT DEAL WITH THIS TODAY!!!!! You two have been at each other’s throats for over half of a year! This is the end! After next week, I want this to be over! There is a reason we put this no physical contact ban on you two until Bloodletter!
Raven: Fine. Make it no DQ and I’ll punish this minor irritation until she’s off my case permanently.
Remi: No DQ? Been there. After everything you’ve done to me, my friends, my family… I want to end you for good. I want Last Woman Standing.
Flannery: You know what? I’m done. No more requests from you two. I’ve got an idea that will end this for sure. You two met for the first time on the April 26th episode of Empire earlier this year in what was meant to just be a showcase match for two rookies, and if I’d known the headache it would bring me, I never would’ve booked that match. But Raven won that match as well as three other singles competition matches against Remi before Remi won the triple threat at Manifest Destiny. You two have taken shots at one another for too long. The winner will have to be the definitively better woman. You two will face off… IN THREE STAGES OF HELL!!!
(Raven and Remi both look at Flannery in shock before looking at one another with malice)
Flannery: You two have faced multiple times in standard singles matches, so that’s our first stage. You two have faced off in No Disqualification situations, so that’s our second stage. And if it has to go this far, we will take it somewhere you two have never gone before. Remi, you wanted Last Woman Standing? That’s our third stage. If the two of you can’t get your differences out after all of that… then too bad. Because it will be a cold day in Hell before I book this match again.
(An evil smiles crawls across Raven’s face)
Raven: Hmmmm… sounds like fun. No worries, Flan. The better woman will win this match.
(Remi stands up and storms off as she shouts)
Remi: YOU’RE DAMN RIGHT I WILL!!!
(Raven rolls her eyes and grins as she takes her Championship and exits the stage.)

Corie Simmons: The following contest is scheduled for…ONE FALL!!!
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!
(‘I Smell A Massacre’ by The Butcher Babies begins to play as the crowd gives off a mixed reaction for the reigning Specialist Champion as she has her title draped over her shoulder with somewhat of a scowl on her face while marching down to the ring.)
Corie Simmons: Making her down the isle…she hails from Sydney, Australia…. weighing in 153lbs….she’s THE REIGNING AND DEFENDING EAW SPECIALIST CHAMPION……TYLERRRRRR!!!! WOLFFFFEEEE!!!!
SG1: Tyler Wolfe, the reigning Specialist Champion! Tough as nails, tough as they come. But last week the Dirti Diva Amber Keys and Cleopatra apparently didn’t get that memo as they took it upon themselves to try and take out and decimate her and Sienna Jade, all before Kassidy Heart made the save!
Alicia: Yeah, I’d bet dollars to donuts they just signed their own death certificates the moment they decided to pick a fight with the Jaded Wolfe Hearts, namely this woman standing in the ring right now!
(Tyler enters the ring and doesn’t waste any time posing with her title as she gives it up to the referee right away. She’s already gesturing toward the entrance way for her opponent to come on out!)
(‘Easy Target’ by Blink 182 hits to boos as Amber Keys makes her way down the ramp)
Corie Simmons: And now introducing her opponent…she hails from Bronx NY!…. weighing in at 136lbs….She’ known as the DIRITI DIVA!……AMBERRRR!!!! KEYYYYYYSSSSS!!!!
SG1: Amber Keys is here, Alicia! She’s ready to go, but it looks like Tyler Wolfe may be too!
Alicia: Indeed, wow, Tyler has just left the ring to meet Amber. This may get out of hand already and both-OMG!!! HOLY SHIT!!! BOTH AMBER AND TYLER SLUGGING IT OUT ON THE RAMP! TYLER HAS THE ADVANTAGE! THRUST KICK BY TYLER TO THE MIDSECTION OF AMBER WHO KEELS OVER! TYLER GRABS AMBER AND LOOKS TO-OMG!!! TYLER WOLFE JUST GOT SPEARED BY AMBER OFF THE ENTRANCE RAMP TO THE HARD FLOOR TO THE RIGHT! BOTH LADIES ARE DOWN! BUT TYLER BARELY SEEMS FAZED AS SHE IS STILL TRYING TO THROW THOSE VICIOUS STRIKES OF HERS AT THE DIRTI DIVA EVEN FROM A SITTING POSITION! AMBER TRYING TO GET THE HELL OUT OF DODGE!
SG1: Let her get in the ring, Tyler! It’s Amber’s time, not yours! Why couldn’t you just let this get to the ring!!? Come on! Amber trying to escape! Amber sees Tyler advancing toward her from a distance! Tyler has a mean look on her face as she continues toward the backpedaling Amber Keys! Amber with her arms outstretched in front of her as she pleads with Tyler to back off! But Tyler does no such thing! Tyler darts at Amber who instinctively hops the gate that leads into the crowd!
Alicia: Amber’s booking it through the sea of humanity! But look at this!!?? Tyler Wolfe just hopped the gate and is making her way to the frantic and panicky Amber Keys who is making a b-line through the audience and toward the ringside area! AHHH!! Tyler is gaining ground fast as these fans love it! Amber just about to the barricaded area now but Tyler almost to her! Amber hops over now to ringside! Amber turns to see Tyler Wolfe who stands frozen in place! Look at her, SG1! Tyler gritting her teeth as she slowly walks the rest of the way approaching the barricade! Folks this match has not even officially started yet! Tyler Wolfe, who no doubt took exception to the fact that Amber and Co. tried to take her and Sienna Jade out last week! She wants Amber, and she wants blood….badly!
SG1: Tyler hops over the barricade! Amber finally tries to strike Tyler, but TYLER DUCKS THE STRIKE AND IN THE SAME MOTION GRABS AMBER IN A BEARHUG AND RUNS WITH AMBER RAMMING HER BACK RIGHT INTO THE RINGPOST! MY GOD!
Tyler: GET UP!!! YOU”RE ABOUT TO LEARN WHO THE FUCK I AM!
Alicia: TYLER WOLFE TAKING IT RIGHT AT AMBER KEYS LIKE NOBODY HAS SO FAR SINCE AMBER’S RETURN TO EAW! TYLER GRABS AMBER UP AND THIS TIME PICKS HER UP OVER HER SHOULDER LIKE A BATTERING RAM! TYLER RUNS WITH AMBER NOW! BUT AMBER ESCAPES ANOTHER UNFORTUNATE UP CLOSE WITH THAT SAME RING POST JUST IN TIME AND LANDS ON HER FEET AND THEN SENDS TYLER WITH FORCE INTO THE RING POST FACE FIRST!
Ref: COME ON, AMBER! GET IT IN THE RING!
SG1: Amber grabs up Tyler Wolfe outside just in front of our announce table! Amber grabs a head full of blonde hair and smashes the head of Tyler Wolfe into the announce table!
Amber: I’m up, and now it’s time to take you out to the woodshed and put you down for g-..
Alicia: Tyler Wolfe fighting back with huge rights to the face of Amber sending her staggering back! The crowd loves it! Amber escapes under the bottom rope but Tyler is right there with her! Now both ladies have finally made it into the ring! And the referee signals for the bell!
(DING! DING! DING!)
SG1: And the bell has sounded! Amber up to her feet as is Tyler and Tyler lands are hard right to the face of Amber that sends her staggering back!! Tyler again! No! Amber with a kick to the midsection! Now Amber sends a couple of chops to the chest that sends her staggering back! Amber whips Tyler but Tyler reverses the whip and sends Amber to the ropes! Amber off the ropes! Tyler with a thrust kick that was anticipated well by Amber as she baseball slides underneath Tyler! SPINNING HEEL KICK FROM AMBER TO TYLER! NO! IT’S DUCKED BY TYLER! TYLER HAS AMBER FROM BEHIND! GERMAN SUPLEX! AMBER STOPS THE ATTEMPT WITH REPEATED BACK ELBOWS TO THE HEAD OF TYLER! TYLER RELEASES HOLD OF AMBER! AND NOW A SPINNING HEEL KICK FROM AMBER CONNECTS THIS TIME SENDING THE REELING TYLER WOLFE STAGGERING BACK AGAINST THE ROPES! BUT TYLER ON HER FEET STILL AS SHE COMES BACK BOUNCING OFF THE ROPES! HEADSCISSORS TAKEDOWN BY TYLER TO AMBER! AMBER BACK UP TO MEET TYLER BUT IS MET WITH A THRUST KICK FROM THE SPECIALIST CHAMPION! THIS TIME IT CONNECTS! DDT BY TYLER TO AMBER! THE FANS ACTUALLY REACT POSITIVELY TO THAT SERIES! TYLER WITH THE FIRST COVER OF THE MATCH!
Alicia: Kickout by Amber! Tyler has Amber up! Forearm strikes by ‘The Big Badd Wolfe’! Tyler whips Amber to the opposite side! Amber smartly hangs on to the ropes though! Tyler wasn’t anticipating that! Here she comes! Amber moves out of the way and instead uses Tyler’s momentum to hang her out to dry on the ropes! Uh oh! Tyler stuck in the ropes! Amber takes advantage by twisting and locking Tyler’s arms in the ropes! Tyler tries to escape! She’s kicking her legs at Amber! AND SUPERKICK TO THE HEAD OF TYLER WOLFE WHO HAD NO ARMS TO BLOCK IT! AND ANOTHER BY AMBER! OPEN FIST PUNCHES TO THE SKULL NOW OF TYLER WOLFE BEING DELIVERED BY AMBER KEYS! THE REFEREE IS AT THE COUNT OF FIVE! Amber backs up as the referee has to unwrap Tyler of the ropes! Tyler falls immediately to the canvas dazed as she tries to recover! OH MY! AMBER ALREADY UP TOP READY TO FLY! WHAT’S SHE GOING TO DO HERE!?? KNEE DROP ONTO TYLER! AMBER ROLLS TYLER WOLFE OVER FOR THE COVER!
SG1: Kickout by the Specialist Champion! Amber now dropping repeated elbows on the head of Tyler who is trying to recover here! Amber paces around Tyler in a circle, circling her prey! Tyler going for the ropes to pull herself back up! Amber now grabbing at the hair of Tyler! Amber saying something to Tyler! Tyler-OH!! Headbutt by Tyler to Amber! That rocked Amber! But Amber comes back with a swinging back fist to Tyler! Amber now going down low by taking out the left leg of Tyler with that dropkick! Now Amber grabs Tyler by the same leg she took out but Tyler sweeps her other leg in a twisting motion that trips up the Dirti Diva! Tyler takes full advantage now as she’s now all over Amber with these hard elbow strikes to the head of Amber! Amber trying to scramble away as she’s frantically kicking at Tyler! Oh and connects with the face of Tyler! And another! Another! Tyler backs away now but she’s still in it! Both ladies back to their feet! Tyler coming right at Amber but here comes the Dirti Diva she’s not backing down! Both trading forearm after forearm one right after another and the crowd loves it! And a rake to the eyes by Amber that finally ends the forearm war! Amber grabs Tyler by her hair and slams her face into the corner turnbuckle! She makes a second attempt at the same thing but doesn’t get the same result because Tyler just walloped Amber right in the mouth with a surprise elbow! Amber comes back for more! AND A DEVASTATING SIDEWALK SLAM BY TYLER WOLFE OUT OF NOWHERE! TYLER WITH THE COVER!
Alicia: Amber with the kickout! Wow! That was close! Tyler Wolfe no doubt is showing off the stuff that’s made her a dominant female here on Empire and Amber Keys is getting a first hand demonstration of that right now! Tyler has Amber up! NIGHT OF THE WOLFE! NO! AMBER TRANSITIONS INTO A HEADSCISSORS! NO! RE-REVERSED! OH MY GOD! BROKEN BITCH! BROKEN BITCH! THE X-PLEX SENDING AMBER KEYS TUMBLING TO THE CANVAS! AMBER SLIDING BACK TOWARD THE CORNER! PLEADING WITH TYLER WOLFE! TYLER JUST SHAKING HER HEAD GRITTING HER TEETH! TYLER SMELLS BLOOD! HERE COMES TYLER! RUNNING METEORA!!!

Tyler trying to battle out of the grasp of Amber! Amber pulls Tyler into the ringpost! Amber-WHAT’S SHE DOING!!?? Amber wrapping Tyler’s legs in a figure four around the ring post!

The referee starts his count as Tyler is still in the ropes! Amber lining up in the opposite corner! She can sense the end is near! Tyler Wolfe having trouble standing as she uses the ropes for support as she slowly tries to make it to a standing vertical base! And Tyler is up and she turns around HERE COMES AMBER! AMBER ALERT! TYLER MOVES OUT OF THE WAY AT THE LAST SECOND! AMBER JUST SPEARED THE RING POST! TYLER WITH A ROLL UP OF AMBER!
Alicia: Tyler Wolfe was so close! Amber rolling from the ring to the floor as Tyler once again trying to rise back to her feet! The pain she absorbed from the ring post and extra punishment afterwards by Amber has taken it’s toll! Amber back to her feet! Amber heads toward the timekeeper and ring announcer area! Amber grabs up a chair now! Oh come on Amber, enough is enough! The Dirti Diva entering the ring armed with a weapon in hand and evil intentions on the mind! The referee admonishes the Dirti Diva but Amber just shoves him away! Tyler turns around and ****CRACK*** TYLER WOLFE JUST TOOK ALL OF THAT CHAIR SHOT! The referee telling Amber “NO”! As he signals for the timekeeper to ring the bell!
(DING! DING! DING!)
SG1: Amber is smiling as she holds up the chair she just used on Tyler to taunt the crowd! She just laid a nasty shot in on Tyler! There is no way Tyler Wolfe is-NO WAY! YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME RIGHT NOW! LOOK AT AMBER’S FACE! FROM PROUD TO LOOKING LIKE SHE JUST SEEN A GHOST! TYLER WOLFE SITS UP! SHE HAS BLOOD TRICKLING DOWN HER FACE FROM HER FOREHEAD! THE BIG BAD WOLFE GRITTING HER TEETH AGAIN AS SHE BEGINS FORCING HERSELF UP THROUGH THE PAIN IN HER LEG! TYLER COMING RIGHT AT AMBER WHO DROPS THE CHAIR AND DROPS DOWN AND ROLLS OUT OF THE RING! Ohhhh man, Alicia, what a war that was! Amber still in shock as she slowly backpedals keeping her gaze on Tyler the whole time!
Corie Simmons: The winner of this match as a result of a disqualification…. TYLERRRRR!!! WOLFFFFEEE!!!!
(“I Smell A Massacre” by The Butcher Babies comes to life as the crowd reaction is a mixed one in favor of Tyler Wolfe as she limps toward the ropes facing the entrance watching her opponent escape.)
Alicia: Tyler Wolfe leaning on the ropes here as Amber continues to backpedal! That smirk on Tyler’s face says it all as she wipes some of the blood from her head! These women just beat the hell out of each like government mules! This was hardly a wrestling match! This was an all out slugfest!
SG1: Right it was, Alicia! Except who is standing? That’s right, Alicia, both ladies are standing! That tells the story right there! This is something that is far far from being over!
(Amber is shown standing on the stage now looking on as Tyler Wolfe stares right back as the show goes black.)
(Commercial plays for new Fox show, Robert Raven, Lion Slayer, coming soon!)
(Camera opens to the commentary desk again)
Alicia: With Madison Kaline taking the Unified Womens World Championship and injuring Cloud Matsuda to the degree she and her partners did, no named contender remained for the championship.
SG1: Flannery McCoy addressed the issue earlier today at the Bloodletter press conference.
(Camera transitions back to the press conference where Flannery stands at the center podium and Kendra Shamez and Stephon Hunte sit at either side of her. Madison Kaline sits with her feet up on the table, blowing bubbles with her bubble gum. The Unified Women’s World Championship sits on the table in front of her.)
Flannery: As many of you know, reports deem it unlikely that Stephanie “Cloud” Matsuda will be able to return to in ring competition.
(Madison smiles and gives a thumbs up to the camera)
Flannery: Madison, seriously, stop.
(Madison sticks a blue tongue out at Flannery)
Flannery: As I was saying… Cloud is unlikely to return. So with that said, we will not allow the World Championship to go undefended next week.
Madison: Oooooh. Next victim. Sounds fun!
(Flannery shoots a glance at Madison)
Flannery: Well I have made a decision on the next contender for the Unified Women’s World Championship. Ladies and Gentlemen, please welcome Andrea Valentine.
(Madison nearly choked on her gum as she hears the name. Andrea walks out and sits on the opposite side of the podium from Madison)
Andrea: Thank you, Flannery. I’m honored the have the opportunity.
Flannery: It’s more than deserved.
Madison (mocking): I’m honored for the mehmehmeh.
Andrea: And you call yourself a world champion?
Madison: Uhhhh. Yes. I have the belt. You don’t.
Flannery: Please. Let’s keep this professional.
Madison (laughing): Fine. You want to keep it professional? I’ll keep it professional wrestling. You want Andrea to get this shot? Ok. I’ll add her name to my list a second time since I’ve taken her out before. But I just won this title last week and I had to do it in a steel cage. So this time, I’m setting the stipulation. A match of my own decision. Now that I have my gold and sit on top, I’m the Queen of Death. So I’m declaring we have a Mistress of Death Match. Extreme rules. Anything goes.
Flannery: Madison, after what you, Cleo, and Amber pulled last week, you have no right to—
Andrea: I accept. You wanna open it up to where I’m allowed to do to you what you’ve been doing to everyone else without repercussion? I’ll take that chance.
Flannery: …ok then. The Unified Women’s World Championship will be defended in a Mistress of Death Match at Bloodletter. The match is set. Thank you all for joining us here today.
Madison: Just remember, I can do whatever I want to you even with the referee watching.
Andrea: Just remember, you deserve everything that’s coming to you.
(Madison giggles as she stands up with the title and leaves. Andrea glances at Flannery and nods before leaving)

(Cori Simmons stands in the center of the ring to announce the main event of the evening.)
Cori Simmons: Ladies and gentlemen, the following contest is set for one fall and is the Main Event of the evening! Introducing first, from Montreal, Quebec, Canada, The Queen of the Nile, CLLLLLLEEEEEEOOOOOPPPPPPAAAAAAATTTTTRRRRRAAAAA!
(“Mona Lisa” by Lil Wayne, feat. Kendrick Lamar plays as Cleopatra makes her way to the ring wearing the Vixens title around her waist.)
Alicia Amby: Love her or hate her, you can’t deny that Cleopatra has made quite the impression since her return, uniting with Amber Keys and the new Unified Womens Champion Madison Kaline. She is absolutely a fierce competitor and should not be overlooked!
SG1: All that is true, but she seems determined to prop her legacy up at the expense of the current generation.That has ruffled feathers to say the least, leading to tonight’s situation. Sienna and Astraea do not like each other, but if possible they may hate Cleopatra more!
Cori Simmons: Introducing next, from Chicago, Illinois, she is the 2018 Empress of Elite, ASSSSSSSSSTTTTTRRRRREEEEEEAAAAAA JOOOOORRRRRRDDDAAANNNNN!
(“Party Goin’ Dumb” By Rico Nasty plays as Astraea comes out to the roaring crowd. Astraea’s eyes are locked on Cleopatra in the ring as she makes her way down the aisle and into the ring.)
Alicia: Astraea is, in many people’s opinion, World championship bound. Having very nearly defeated Cloud Matsuda earlier this year. She’s looking to prove those people here right here tonight, and make her claim for Madison’s title!
SG1: She doesn’t have to actually make a claim for the title, Alicia, she has one, she’s Empress of the Elite! She’s got to be many people’s odds on favorite here tonight, but we’ll see what happens once the bell rings!
Cori Simmons: Introducing their opponent, from Calgary, Alberta, Canada, she is one half of the EAW Tag Team Champions, SIIIIIEEEEEEENNNNAAAAAAA JAAAAAADDDDDEEEEEE!
(The lights begin to flash as ‘F.U.U’ by Dream Wife begins to blast all throughout the arena. A few moments pass as Sienna Jade emerges with her EAW Empire Tag Team championship in her hand. She poses and raises her title high as the camera focuses on the glistening gold. Sienna then turns around and shows off her leather jacket with the letters, “F.U.U” attached. She turns and takes the championship and throws it on her shoulder as she begins to strut down the ramp. Sienna slides under the ring and climbs the nearest turnbuckle as she raises her title above her head with her two hands.)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Alicia Amby: And with the bell we begin the main event for tonight. As Astraea and Cleopatra are taking a moment to size each other up Sienna rolls out of the ring. Now, there are no count outs of disqualifications in a triple threat so Sienna can spend as long as she likes outside the ring, however she will need to be aware because that limits her ability to interfere with any pinfalls or submissions! Cleopatra doesn’t seem to care, though, she rushes Astraea with a flurry of forearm shots. Jordan doesn’t back down, however, and starts throwing forearms of her own into Cleopatra’s face (The sharp crack of skin on skin impacts can be heard after each blow.) Neither are giving any ground! LOOK OUT! Double dropkick from Sienna Jade! The Empire Tag champion was waiting to strike and has floored both her opponents!
SG1: Astraea and Cleopatra are back on their feet and now all three women are throwing wild punches at each other! There is a lot of hatred between these competitors, and it’s all coming out right here tonight! Sienna slips a right cross from Astraea and delivers a stiff knee to Jordan’s gut, causing her to stumble back. Cleopatra catches Sienna with a headbutt to the jaw of Jade, stopping Sienna in her tracks! Hooking the tights, Cleopatra suplexes Sienna to the mat, then rolls on top and starts driving her elbow into SIenna’s face, but Jade is able to cover up from the blows mostly, and escapes from the longest reigning champion in EAW history. Headscissors takedown from Astraea as Cleopatra tries to stand!
Alicia: Showing her strength, Astraea pulls Cleopatra to her feet and dumps her out of the ring. As Sienna stands she is met with a chop to the chest from Astraea, and falls back into the corner as the Empress of Elite follows her. Jordan drives her shoulder into the midsection of Jade, driving the Tag champion’s breath from her body. With a handful of hair, Astraea slings Sienna out of the corner and across the mat! Astraea is clearly in control at this point in the match, and stalks Jade. Astraea looks to be going for a superkick -NO! Sienna counters, catching Jordan’s foot and holding it as she stands, leaving Astraea hopping on one foot…dragon screw leg whip from Sienna sends Jordan to the mat holding her knee! That maneuver can torque the tendons of a knee, ruining a person’s night! On the outside Cleopatra seems to be taking a bit of a breather as Sienna continues her assault on the inside.
SG1: Astraea makes her way to her feet only to be met with a clothesline from Sienna, knocking her again to the mat, Jade locks Astraea in a side headlock but Jordan still is able to make her way to her feet, showing off that superior strength…she catches Sienna…BELLY TO BACK SUPLEX! Sienna is planted in the mat and Astraea is now stomping the hands of Sienna who is trying to back away from her to no avail! Astraea pulls Jade up by her hair CAN YOU COUNT TO TEN? Astraea delivers the ten consecutive vertical suplexes to Sienna and looks to be firmly in control of this match! Cleopatra is still on the outside and seems to be signaling someone from the back…Amber Keys! The Dirti Diva is coming down the entrance ramp carrying the chair she used on Tyler Wolfe earlier tonight!
Alicia: Speaking of Tyler, she just attacked Amber from behind! Tyler and Amber are fighting on the ramp in the middle of this match! Back in the ring, Astraea is looking to set Sienna up for Free Smoke from the looks of things…NO! CLEOPATRA CLOCKED HER IN THE HEAD WITH THE VIXENS TITLE! Sienna now sees Tyler and Amber going at it and has decided to go help her stable mate, this match is devolving into mayhem! Cleopatra makes the cover as the official gets into position!
Astraea kicks out right at three! Cleo doesn’t believe it, she thought she had the match won! Sienna and Tyler on the outside are starting to get the better of Amber…WAIT! Consuela attacks Tyler from behind! There is an absolute brawl going on the entrance ramp as Sienna sets up Amber for the Witches Hammer only to be met with the Amber Alert spear! Remember there are no disqualifications in this match, so it will continue! Amber is now stalking her way to the ring now that Sienna is out of the picture for a moment. Cleopatra sees her partner coming to the ring and smiles devilishly. She picks Astraea, who is still groggy from the title shot to the head, and holds her arms as Amber readies her chair to hit Jordan!
SG1: DAISY THRASH FROM THE CROWD! DAISY RUNS IN AND TACKLES AMBER! The Razorblade snowflake is laying into the Dirti Diva! Cleopatra screams in rage as she drops Astraea to the mat and grabs a handful of Daisy’s hair! Thrash is fighting back, but she’s already gone through a match tonight and isn’t able to put much resistance up! CLEO HITS BRUTALITY ON DAISY! THat Canadian Destroyer has flattened Daisy Thrash! Back on the stage Consuela is getting battered by Tyler who is dragging her Bloodletter opponent toward the back! Sienna is slowly making her way to her feet, but Amber has exited the ring and is coming back up the ramp, chair in hand! (Suddenly the crowd cheers as Kassidy Heart runs down and meets Amber with a chair of her own.) KASSIDY IS STANDING OVER SIENNA, HOLDING AMBER OFF!
Alicia: Meanwhile in the ring Cleopatra is distracted by Kassidy Heart, she doesn’t see Astraea standing up…LATE REGISTRATION! The snap Powerbomb Cutter! Cleo is out! Astraea makes the cover!
DING! DING! DING!
(The official calls for the bell and raises Astraea Jordan’s arm in victory)
Cori Simmons: Here is your winner by pinfall…ASSSSSTTTTTRRRRRRAAAAAEEEEAAAAAAAA JOOOOOOOOOOORRRRRRRDDDDAAAAAANNNNNNNNNNNN!
(“Party Goin’ Dumb” by Rico Nasty plays as Amber turns in disbelief at the announcement and gets clocked in the back by Kassidy.)
Alicia: The match is over but it looks like the fighting is still ongoing! Astraea checks on Daisy, who manages to get to her feet then the two make their way up the ramp, Astraea is going after Sienna and Daisy is going after Kassidy! Ladies and gentlemen this is pure bedlam, these six women will meet each other again next week at Bloodletter, if they can make it that far! Cleopatra is making her way up the ramp now and joins the battle!
SG1: Here comes Flannery flanked by security and followed by Stephon Hunte, the Fox representative, they’re trying to seperate the brawl! Ladies and gentlemen, please join us next week for Bloodletter, we’re out of time tonight, for Alicia Amby, I’m SG1 and thank you for joining Empire tonight!
