Fighting Spirit: Toyko 2018

 

(EAW Intro plays)

(“Electric Feel” by MGMT plays on a video package as various tourist attractions in Tokyo, Japan are shown, including Senso-ji, the historic temple, Tokyo Disneyland, and lastly the Tokyo Skytree — the world’s tallest freestanding broadcasting tower at 2,080 feet. The ground below is shown with cars driving about the streets of Tokyo before the image pans in on the Ryogoku Sumo Hall. The camera pans into the arena where over eleven-thousand people are seated, all of which represent a capacity crowd. Various wrestlers on the titantron then come into view, rattling off famous quotes, catchphrases, and their intentions from this week)

(Mr. DEDEDE appears on the titantron, shown in his earlier years making a speech with one line standing out…)

“He who laughs last, laughs best.”

(The titantron flips to Impact…)

“Expect the unexpected.”

(The titantron now pans in on Malcolm Jones…)

“I was always destined to go straight to the top, no shortcuts and no pit stops.”

(The titantron now sees Jamie O’Hara, and the crowd erupts with a huge reaction…)

“It’s time that you remembered your place in my world.”

(The titantron now pans in on Chris Elite repeating something he said earlier in the week, the World Heavyweight Title draped over his shoulder…)

(“Because at Fighting Spirit, I shatter dreams.”)

(Camera then pans to the ramp where pyro goes off, shaking the generally quiet, meek and respectful Japanese crowd. The camera pans in on a female member of the crowd who strikingly resembles George Foreman before she turns away. Camera then pans in on the commentators Kawajai and Nick Angel who are ready to present Fighting Spirit LIVE!)

Kawajai: Welcome to the Ryogoku Sumo Hall in Tokyo, Japan! There are over eleven-thousand people jam-packed here tonight! They’re here to see matches that are going to determine what happens in the future like the No Way Out, and matches that are going to determine the champions tonight like the Interwire Championship bout between Ahren Fournier and Alejandro Correa and the Fatal Four-Way featuring champion Chris Elite, former champions Jamie O’Hara and Impact, and fresh blood Andrei Sokolova!

Nick Angel: Yeah, they’re here to see a wrestling show, Kawa. We get it.

Kawajai: Somebody has to do the dirty work and it certainly isn’t going to be you, Nick! Nevertheless, welcome to Fighting Spirit everybody, presented by the “A” brand Voltage!

( ‘It Follows’ by Cane Hill starts playing as the crowd starts the boo’s and Xander Payne slowly comes out taking a look around the arena, not being impressed at all as he makes his way to the ring with a frustrated look in his face. )

Rebecca Sawyer: And his opponent, from Brampton, Ontario, Canada, weighing it at 255 pounds, “The Paynekiller”, Xandeeeeer Payneeeeee!

Kawajai: These two have been on fire on their social stream accounts Nick, exchanging words with eachother, also involving the EAW New Breed Champion, The Revenant.

(Intermission. Commercial for Extreme Answers Wrestling: EAW’s first seven years plays)

(The camera cuts to Rebecca Sawyer in the ring. DING! DING! DING!)

Rebecca Sawyer: THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SCHEDULED FOR ONE FALL!!!

Crowd: ONE FALL!!!

Sawyer: AND IS FOR THE EAW INTERWIRE CHAMPIONSHIP!!!!!!!!!!!!

(“Blood on the Leaves” by Kanye West hits!!!)

Sawyer: INTRODUCING FIRST! FROM MADRID, SPAIN WEIGHING IN AT 205 POUNDS… HE IS ALEJANDRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRO CORRRRRRRRRRRRRRRREA!!!

(Alejandro Correa steps out to the stage to a mixed reaction moving his hands across his waist signalling that he is the next Interwire Champion! Alejandro stops at the top of the stage taking in the reaction from the crowd.)

Kawajai: Alejandro Correa has been out taking in all the sites during his time in Japan, but now he looks all business! He has promised victory here tonight so that he can bring “order and consistency” to this company.

(Alejandro Correa slides into the ring as he awaits his opponent looking very ready for this upcoming contest.)

Nick Angel: He claims that Ahren Fournier does not properly value the EAW Interwire Championship. He’s going to beat some respect into this motherfucker!

(“Beat The Devil’s Tattoo by Black Rebel Motorcycle Club hits!!!)

Rebecca Sawyer: AND HIS OPPONENT… FROM PAWTUCKET, RHODE ISLAND WEIGHING IN AT 210 POUNDS… HE IS THE EAW INTERWIRE CHAMPION… “THE INEFFABLE” AHREN FOURRRRRRRRRRRRRNIER!!!!

(Ahren Fournier steps out onto the stage holding the EAW Interwire Championship up above his head in pride as the crowd boos the shit outta him. Ahren laughs at the crowd for hating on him as he walks down towards the ring.)

Kawajai: Ahren Fournier sure looks confident. He has spent the entire week belittling his opponent. Calling him a rookie, calling him out of touch, even going so far as straight up calling Alejandro Correa a liar!

(Ahren Fournier enters the ring and yells at the referee to take care of his championship as he relinquished it. Ahren begins doing stretches in the ring as he stares across the ring at his opponent.)

Nick Angel: Well this crowd may not like Ahren Fournier but he is the EAW Interwire Champion. He also has multiple victories over the first inductee into the EAW Hall of Fame Jamie O’Hara. Alejandro Correa can act like he’s not a rookie, like he’s got all the experience in the world, but you can’t take away Ahren’s accomplishments. We will see if Alejandro can measure up!!!

(DING! DING! DING!)

Kawajai: I absolutely love the feeling we get here when EAW comes to Japan. These fans are quiet during the matches, but that is not at all out of boredom. That is out of respect. They may hate on the wrestlers they dislike but they damn sure respect them!

Nick Angel: If being silent is a sign of respect maybe I should just shut the fuck up and let you call this entire match Kawa.

Kawajai: Are you saying you respect me?

Nick Angel: …

Kawajai: Well it appears I have been left on my own as this match is underway! Ahren Fournier and Alejandro Correa going face to face in the ring talking mad shit about each other. Shit is about to get real as Ahren goes for a punch but Alejandro dodges with the quickness! Alejandro walking around the ring as Ahren circles as well… the two men now locking up as Ahren takes the arm of Alejandro twisting out the arm trying to break it off. Alejandro however wrenches his arm free and connects with a vicious knee into the gut of Ahren! Alejandro locking onto Ahren as he throws him back with a Belly to Belly Suplex! It connects! The cover!

1!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

2!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Nick Angel: THE KICKOUT!!!

Kawajai: Oh so you started talking again?

Nick Angel: Yes because I don’t respect you.

Kawajai: 🙁

Nick Angel: :umad: Alejandro with the first cover of this match, but he comes out with nothing. Both men back up as Alejandro swiftly maneuvers himself behind Ahren with a Backslide!!!

1!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

2!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Kawajai: AHREN KICKS OUT AGAIN! Another close call delivered by Alejandro who appears to be trying to end this match as early as possible. And he might just do it with all of these sneaky pinning combinations. Ahren back up on his feet now in the corner as Alejandro charges in with a Running Knee! NO! Ahren dodges and Alejandro collides directly into the turnbuckle! He is all tied up as Ahren ruthlessly punches, kicks, and chops away at his opponent in the corner. The referee forces him off as Alejandro falls out of the corner to the floor. Ahren now bouncing off them ropes… Knee Drop to the head of Alejandro! The Interwire Champion in total control now as he picks up his opponent… Ahren twisting Alejandro around… German Suplex connects!!! But Alejandro rolls through! Alejandro back up… BUT A SPEAR FROM AHREN CONNECTS!!!

Nick Angel: SPEAR! SPEAR! SPEAR!

Kawajai: The most destructive spear in EAW history connects as Alejandro is sent back his head bouncing off the turnbuckle padding. Ahren drags his lifeless body back into the ring and goes for the cover!!!

1!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

2!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Nick Angel: THE KICKOUT!!! I think that Ahren is starting to recognize that Alejandro will not go down easily! Alejandro slowly returns back up his feet as he immediately goes in to lock up with Ahren. Alejandro with all his power pushing back against Ahren who looks shocked at the strength and determination of his challenger! Ahren battling back with some shots to the back of Alejandro! But Alejandro pushes Ahren into the corner and lights him up with a kick to the head! Alejandro with a series of vicious kicks in the corner! Ahren shoves him off but Alejandro right back up in it with punches to the head of his opponent! Ahren shoves back again and dodging the onslaught from Alejandro! Ahren grabbing his opponent by the hair as he tosses him over the top rope to the outside! Ahren quickly following as Alejandro is right back up on his feet delivering some hard forearms to the skull of the champion! AHREN WITH A LEGSWEEP THO! ALEJANDRO GOES FACE FIRST INTO THE STEEL STEPS!!!

Kawajai: Ahren smirking at the booing crowd as he tosses Alejandro back into the ring. The cover!!!

1!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

2!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Nick Angel: The kickout! Alejandro will not give up here tonight! Ahren picks up his opponent as Alejandro goes in with some precise kicks to the legs taking Ahren to the mat. Ahren smartly rolls out of the ring as Alejandro yells at him to come back in… Alejandro tho running off the ropes… SUICIDE DIVE TO THE OUTSIDE CONNECTS!!! Ahren sent back first into the barricade as he screams in pain!!! Alejandro sending his opponent back into the ring as he climbs up to the top rope! Alejandro signalling to the crowd as he dives off… MEZZALA CONNECTS! THE DIVING ELBOW DROP RIGHT INTO THE CHEST OF AHREN!!! Alejandro Correa now with the cover!!!

1!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

2!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Kawajai: Close but not quite as the champion kicks out! Alejandro not even thinking about it as he is back up to his feet. Ahren regaining his footing as he is on his knees… Alejandro off the ropes as he connects with a running knee to the skull of the champion! Ahren might have just been knocked the fuck out!!! Alejandro tho going back up to the top rope! Ahren back up tho as he charges in knocking Alejandro over the top rope to the outside! Alejandro lands crashing down on the steel steps!! Ahren rolling out of the ring now as he grabs his opponent and OH SHIT!!!

(Kawajai goes running off as Ahren tosses Alejandro over the commentary table! Nick Angel is taken out by Alejandro as they collide sending Nick’s chair tipping over!!!)

Kawajai: GET THE HELL OUTTA HERE! THIS IS MY TABLE!

(Ahren Fournier laughs as he shoves Kawajai aside and grabs Alejandro by the hair dragging him back over the table.)

Kawajai: Who the hell do you think you are? I’m a Hall of Famer I won’t be disrespected like this.

(Kawajai shoves the timekeeper aside as he grabs the EAW Interwire Championship and starts to leave the arena. The referee stops him as he starts to go up the ramp and they begin arguing. Nick Angel returns to his position at the commentary table as Ahren has tossed Alejandro back in the ring and is pummeling the shit outta him.)

Nick Angel: What the hell is that dumbass doing. He is definitely going to get fired for this…

(Nick Angel leaves commentary to go help the referee convince Kawajai to return to commentary. Meanwhile in the ring Alejandro has turned the tide with a Roundhouse Kick connecting to the head of Ahren Fournier! NO! Ahren ducked it and connected with a low blow! But the referee is distracted on the outside!!! Ahren now realizing what is going on as he bounces off the ropes… AHREN FOURNIER WITH A SUICIDE DIVE TO THE OUTSIDE! AHREN JUST TOOK OUT KAWAJAI, NICK ANGEL, AND THE REFEREE WITH THAT PLUNGE!!!)

Rebecca Sawyer: Ummm I’m not really sure how to do this. I guess I will be taking over commentary until the actual commentators come back and actually do their damn jobs! Ahren grabbing the referee and throwing him into the ring! Ahren Fournier grabbing his Interwire Championship as he gets back into the ring. Alejandro Correa back up on his feet as he turns around… AHREN WITH THE INTERWIRE CHAMPIONSHIP OFF THE SKULL OF ALEJANDRO!!! THAT GOLD MEETING FLESH AS ALEJANDRO JUST GOT KNOCKED THE FUCK OUT! AHREN WITH THE COVER! THIS HAS GOT TO BE OVER!!! THE COVER!!!

….

Sawyer: But the referee is still motionless! Ahren shaking the referee trying to wake him up! Oh god look at Alejandro Correa’s face! He is busted wide open! The referee finally moving now! Ahren demanding he count as he returns to the cover!

1!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

2!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sawyer: … ALEJANDRO CORREA KICKS OUT! HE IS DOING IT FOR SPAIN! HIS FACE COVERED IN BLOOD AS HE OPENS HIS EYES STILL ALIVE AND STILL IN THIS MATCH!!! Oh no here comes Kawajai and Nick Angel. I guess I have to leave now. THANKS GUYS I LOVE ALL MY FANS! CALL ME UP AT THE POON PALACE I’M ALWAYS AVAILABLE!

Nick Angel: Well that was not how I wanted to spend my night. My back fucking hurts.

Kawajai: I guess I got a little heated. I would like to apologize to my fans and to my boss please don’t fire me.

Nick: How about that Rebecca on commentary tho? She really came thru for us!

Kawajai: A WOMAN ON COMMENTARY?!?!? WHAT IS THIS TERMINUS?!?!?

Nick Angel: … What a pig. Terminus was fantastic!

Kawajai: Nobody cares what you have to say. Anyway both men are still motionless in the ring. Alejandro covered in blood and Ahren in disbelief that Alejandro still hasn’t been put away! Ahren looking mad pissed right now as he kicks the Interwire Championship out of the ring glaring down at his opponent.

Ahren: GET THE FUCK UP! I’M GONNA PUT YO ASS DOWN BITCH!

Nick Angel: Alejandro Correa struggling back up to his feet… Ahren Fournier bouncing off the ropes… He’s looking to end it!

Kawajai: STORYBOOK ENDING CONNECTS!!! THE CURB STOMP SENDS ALEJANDRO’S FACE CRASHING DOWN ON THE MAT IN A POOL OF BLOOD!!! THE COVER!!!

Nick Angel: NO! THE KICKOUT BY ALEJANDRO CORREA! HOW THE HELL?!?!?

Kawajai: He just will not die… He has to pass out from that blood loss at some point right?!?!?

Nick Angel: Ahren Fournier looking so appalled. He just unleashed his most devastating maneuver and still couldn’t put down this rookie invader with roots in REVOLT! Pro Combat!

Ahren Fournier: Another one.

Kawajai: Ahren channeling the former underboss of REVOLT! Pro Combat Talib Bari as it looks like he is going to go for yet another Storybook Ending! Alejandro’s entire body shaking as he climbs back up to his feet… Ahren off the ropes… STORYBOOK ENDING CONNECTS!!!

Nick Angel: The referee lifting the arm of Ahren! It falls down to the mat!!! The referee lifts it again and it falls limply yet again! If it falls again the match will be awarded to Alejandro via knockout! The referee raises up the arm of Ahren… Will it fall?!?!?!?

Kawajai: THE ARM STAYS UP!

Nick Angel: The arm of Ahren Fournier staying as erect as I am right now.

Kawajai: AHREN FOURNIER REACHES OUT AND GRABS THE ROPES! ALEJANDRO CORREA IS FORCED TO BREAK THE HOLD! ALEJANDRO FALLING BACK ON THE MAT OUT OF BREATH! HE LOOKS ABSOLUTELY DEVASTATED HE COULDN’T PUT AHREN AWAY WITH HIS SUBMISSION!!!

2!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

3!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(DING! DING! DING!)

Rebecca Sawyer: Here is your winner… and STILL the EAW Interwire Champion… AHREN FOURRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRNIER!!!

(“Beat The Devil’s Tattoo by Black Rebel Motorcycle Club hits as the referee awards the blood stained Interwire Championship to Ahren Fournier who clutches it tightly to his chest.)

Nick Angel: Absolutely stunning performance by Alejandro Correa who would not give up here tonight. Yet in the end whether you like him or you hate his guts Ahren Fournier has retained the championship here tonight.

(Alejandro Correa is out cold in the ring as Ahren Fournier struggles to walk up the ramp with his championship. Ahren falls over as he reaches the stage catching his breath. Ahren shoves away officials looking to help him as he gets back up under his own power and makes his exit.)

Kawajai: Alejandro is definitely going to need some medical attention after this match with how much blood he lost. Alejandro showed the entire world here tonight that while he may not be Interwire Champion he is not just some rookie ass noob to be taken lightly.

Nick Angel: And Ahren Fournier reminded the entire world why he is STILL the EAW Interwire Champion.

(The camera cuts to an advertisement for “EAW High School Story: Five Years in the Making” premiering soon we guarantee it!)

(Camera fades backstage to a large entourage of men in “Joneset” and “Blicky Boyz” shirts walking down the hallway, in the middle of the pack being guarded by the goons are Chris Elite, Malcolm Jones, and Astraea Jordan)

(As they’re walking down the hallway they’re suddenly stopped by Kathy Kush who tries to get in the middle of the entourage to get the attention of the Blicky Boyz)

Astraea Jordan(stepping in front of Kathy before she can get to them): What you want snowflake? The espresso bar is THAT way.

Kathy Kush: I’m actually Kathy Kush, I do interviews here, just wanted to see if I could get the Blicky Boyz time before they head into their big matches tonight.

Random Entourage member: Kathy Kush? Aye ain’t that what we just smoked before we pulled u-

(Chris Elite jumps into the frame distracting everybody from the comment)

Chris Elite: Hayyyy, wassup Kathy, so you wanna get an exclusive from the Blicky Boyz huh? Now I see why EAW hired you because you got some heart sis. You the first white girl to see a pack of black men and actually rush towards the group as opposed to going in the other direction because you think we’re gonna snatch your purse or some shit. That’s wassup tho, I can humor you for a bit. Don’t mind Astraea she’s still a little disappointed about last night but she’s a winner in our books.

Kathy Kush: Alright well Chris, tonight you face a man who claims to be the true World Heavyweight Champion of Voltage, and two multiple time world champion EAW Hall of Famers. That’s gotta be about the biggest challenge that any world champion on any brand or company can possibly face. How are you dealing with the pressure?

Chris Elite: Pressure? Who says I’m pressured? If anything I’m excited to show these people that not only am I the true world champion on Voltage, but in EAW period. Fact of the matter is that Carlos can’t even keep possession of his championship without being terrorized by a homeless drunk, Rex can barely keep up with Hurricane Hawks leftovers, and the women’s champ is a dyke. So here’s what I’m gonna do, I’m gonna defeat the three fake edgy bozos and end any confusion on who the TRUE champ is or who earned what, and then I’m going to walk into Pain for Pride with a world championship around my waist in the main event.

Kathy Kush: Have you thought about the prospect of facing your partner Malcolm Jones? He’s in a No Way Out match tonight that basically determines your opponent and while he odds are stacked against him, he still has a fighting chance.

Malcolm Jones: Woah woah woah, first of all ain’t no odds stacked against me bih. As far as I’m concerned I’m the favorite just like Bhris is the favorite, and both of our mind states are that we’re walking out the winners of our respective matches and then seeing one another at Pain for Pride because honestly we the only ones who we deem worthy enough to see one another on such a stage like that. We homies but we still got that competitive spirit and no matter how it ends, the love is still there. So any clout chasing clowns who think otherwise, you’re in for disappointment.

Chris Elite: Facts. We not even thinking about the upcoming matches, our head is already at Pain for Pride where we gonna headline that whole shit and put NYC back on the map! Very rarely do you come across somebody you can genuinely relate to and be around and trust, and Malcolm is somebody who I can trust, that’s why I wouldn’t want it any other way but to face him at the biggest stage possible. Better my brother than one of these other weirdos in the No Way Out match, especially Ryan Adams. That’s why his homies are my homies and vice versa, you see all these people around us, it’s not hired goons.. it’s a family. It’s the Joneset and my clique. It’s my sister Astraea Jordan who runs that dyke infested brand and will be walking away with as much gold as us when it’s said and done. It’s a comradery and that’s never gonna change.

Astraea Jordan: You heard that Becky? It’s never gonna change, so think twice before you try to throw a wrench into the Blicky Boyz wave. We all know what we signed up for sis, besides at the end of the day regardless of who wins, it’s all going to be under one umbrella, the only umbrella that matters in EAW. The clique filled with real ones, not some bum ass fake edgy birds nest, or some fake mean girls, but people who simply got over by being themselves. Watch them work tonight, and then watch how I bounce back from last night going forward… that’ll be all.

(Astraea Jordan walks away as Blicky Boyz, Big Mike and the rest of the entourage follow)

(Camera pans to the ramp. A video package of highlights showcasing Jamie O’Hara, Impact, Andrei Sokolova, and finally the World Heavyweight Champion Chris Elite plays. Commissioner Daniels’ announcement on the last Voltage that a Fatal Four-Way for the World Heavyweight Championship would take place at Fighting Spirit is shown. Camera then pans to ringside)

Rebecca Sawyer: The following match is scheduled for one fall… and is a Fatal Four-Way for the EAW World Heavyweight Championship!

(The lights begin to flicker various shades of grey and white as “Can I Live” by Jay-Z hits. Impact walks down the ramp, symbolically closing his eyes mid-way through as he appears in peak physical condition. Impact stops and pauses for a brief moment, now reopening his eyes and walking into the ring…)

Rebecca: Introducing first, from Seattle, Washington, weighing in at 237 pounds… IMPACTTTTTTT!!!!

Kawajai: Since he’s returned to EAW, Impact’s sole goal seems to be getting to Jamie O’Hara. He’s gone on speeches claiming to be an “evolved essence” but it seems like his only real value is to deprive O’Hara of success.

Nick Angel: And maybe there’s a bit more to that. As Impact’s career was declining and reaching its twilight, Jamie was ascending to heights never before seen by an elitist. You have to think Impact saw that and was seething and bitter that somebody else was shining. It’s not right, but that’s how the conceited, arrogant mind of Impact works!

(“Kashmir” by Led Zeppelin [EAW Edit] hits as Jamie O’Hara walks down the ramp being greeted respectfully by the Tokyo audience. Jamie looks right ahead at Impact who slides out of the ring and near the announcer’s table as Jamie walks down. The two men never break with one another as Jamie slides into the ring walking over to the other side and jawing with Impact who remains near the announcer’s table)

Rebecca: From Melbourne, Australia, weighing in at 190 pounds… “THE ACE OF ELITE ANSWERS WRESTLING” JAMIEEEEEE O’HARAAAAA!!!!

Kawajai: O’Hara has a golden opportunity to regain everything he lost tonight, but will the seeds of hatred that have been sown between he and Impact overcome what could be a banner night for the former World Heavyweight Champion?

(“Pray for Me” by G-Eazy hits as the crowd responds with a mixed reaction. The lights dim. Andrei Sokolova walks out onto the lit stage, he stares around at the crowd with an actual expression on his face, as a small smirk begins to form on the face of the man known as the “Agent of Chaos”. After a long buildup, and at 44 seconds, the song kicks in and Andrei roars loudly to the crowd as the lights fully come back on around the arena. Andrei walks to the left side of the stage and raises his arms out emphatically to the crowd, garnering a reaction from them, he then does the same with the right side of the stage, garnering the same reaction. Sokolova then makes a title gesture around his waist as he walks forward and into the ring, capturing Jamie O’Hara’s attention…)

Rebecca: From Doncaster, England, weighing in at 245 pounds… ANDREIIIII SOKOLOVAAAAA!!!

Nick Angel: Just look at Sokolova. The guy is built for a heavyweight fight.

(“Odee” by A Boogie hits as Chris Elite makes an animated entrance on the scene, dapping up fans along the way and seeming completely calm and at ease in stark contrast to his three opponents. The World Heavyweight Championship is draped around Elite’s muscular waist and he’s smiling along the way as he hands his belt to the timekeeper’s area. Impact re-enters the ring and tries to regain Jamie’s focus with some verbal jousting after it strays to Elite)

Rebecca: And from Brooklyn, New York, weighing in at 210 pounds… “GAWD GIVEN GREATNESS” … HE IS THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION … CHRISSSSSS ELITEEEEEE!!!!!

Kawajai: Elite has an air of confidence about him tonight, like he’s about to do something big and prove why he’s the World Heavyweight Champion.

Nick Angel: He had better be prepared to do something big. He’s thrown into the shark tank tonight against three hungry competitors.

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Kawajai: This hotly anticipated Fatal Four-Way bout for the EAW World Heavyweight Championship is underway! AND RIGHT OUT OF THE GATE THE CHAMPION CHRIS ELITE WASTES NO TIME DARTING AT ANDREI SOKOLOVA, CLUBBING HIM IN THE SHOULDER WITH A FLATTENING CLOTHESLINE! ONLY, SOKOLOVA IS SUCH A PHYSICAL SPECIMEN THAT HE SEEMS BARELY FAZED BY THE IMMEDIATE ONSLAUGHT OF THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION CHRIS ELITE! HE HAS THAT LOOK IN HIS EYE LIKE HE WANTS ELITE TO KNOW HE JUST MESSED UP, AND SOKOLOVA PINS THE CHAMPION UP AGAINST THE ROPES! AND NOW IMPACT AND JAMIE O’HARA ARE GOING AFTER ONE ANOTHER! A HOCKEY FIGHT HAS BROKEN OUT IN JAPAN AS IMPACT AND O’HARA, WITH NO LOVE LOST OR FOUND BETWEEN THESE TWO MEN, BEGIN TRADING CLUBBING BLOWS TO THE FACE! A LEFT FROM O’HARA FOLLOWED BY A RIGHT FROM IMPACT, AND O’HARA GAINS THE UPPER-HAND AS IMPACT STAGGERS BACK INTO THE TURNBUCKLES! O’HARA IS CONNECTING WITH KNEES TO THE GUT OF IMPACT AS HE HAS HIM HUNG UP IN THE CORNER!

Nick Angel: On the other end of the ring, Sokolova is forcing Chris Elite up the ropes, taking him up by his legs and positioning him atop the second rope, and now again — and Chris Elite is perched atop the third rope of Sokolova’s volition! Elite is trying to fend off Sokolova’s attack, pummeling him right between the eyes and around the temple with lefts and rights, but Sokolova again seems unfazed as he retaliates to the perched Elite with a headbutt squarely in the cranium! Elite looks glassy-eyed as Sokolova makes his way up the ropes himself, now seating himself on the second rope and positioning Elite for something as he has his arm over the back of Elite’s head! Elite once again seems determined to not fall into Sokolova’s trap as he connects with a desperation knee to the gut to temporarily prevent Sokolova from executing here! SOKOLOVA TRIES TO HOIST CHRIS ELITE UP, AND ELITE’S FEET ARE UP OFF THE GROUND — BUT HE USES IT WEIGHT TO POSITION HIMSELF BACK ON THE TURNBUCKLE, NOW SLAPPING SOKOLOVA IN THE FACE! AND ELITE IS NOW FORCING SOKOLOVA UP TO THE TOP ROPE ALONG WITH HIM AS JAMIE AND IMPACT CONTINUE TO DUKE IT OUT ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE RING! IS CHRIS ELITE GOING TO GO FOR A SUPLEX ONTO THE OUTSIDE??

Kawajai: FRANKENSTEINER! A FRANKENSTEINER ONTO THE OUTSIDE MAT AS SOKOLOVA IS TAKEN ALL THE WAY DOWN! ELITE FALLS DOWN TO THE MAT AS WELL, WHAT A DANGEROUS, DEATH-DEFYING MANEUVER BY THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION AS HE MAY HAVE INJURED HIMSELF THERE JUST AS MUCH AS HE DID SOKOLOVA! SOKOLOVA FELL BACK-FIRST ON THE OUTSIDE MAT IF HIM CLUTCHING AT HIS BACK AFTERWARD WEREN’T ANY INDICATION, AND NOW IT’S JUST IMPACT AND O’HARA IN THE RING AS ELITE AND SOKOLOVA ARE LAID OUT ON THE OUTSIDE!

Nick Angel: O’Hara has gotten the better of Impact thus far as Impact is down on the mat with his head pinned up against the bottom turnbuckle and Jamie O’Hara knee pressing straight against his throat! The referee asks Jamie O’Hara to separate from impact and he obliges, distancing himself for a brief moment, but only to charge back into the grounded Impact as he lifts his leg for the SUPERKICK! NO! IMPACT MOVED OUT OF THE WAY, MAYBE FEELING THE END WAS NIGH EARLY, USING HIS VETERAN INSTINCTS AS THE BACK OF JAMIE’S BOOT HIT THE BOTTOM TURNBUCKLE, AND NOW IMPACT FROM BEHIND O’HARA TRIES TO GET THE ROLL-UP PIN! EIGHT REIGNS!

Ref: ONEEEEEEEEE!!!!… TWOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!…

Kawajai: But a POWERFUL kickout by Jamie O’Hara as Impact recoils all the way over to the ropes! O’Hara is incensed as he regains a vertical base and the two men with a world of bad blood between them that started two months ago now once again break out into a hockey fight, trading blows with one another, a left from Jamie, a right from Impact, and now slaps! A knife-edged chop by Impact in the chest of O’Hara, and now an open-hand slap from O’Hara into the chest of Impact! Impact staggers back and Jamie takes him by the hand, pressing him against the ropes and now Irish whipping him — RIGHT INTO A CLOTHESLINE! Jamie never gave Impact a chance to dart off the ropes on the other end, employing an aggressive gameplan early, and no doubt enjoying himself as he exacts his sweet revenge on the man who cost him his record-breaking World Heavyweight Championship reign! O’Hara turns out AND IS IMMEDIATELY MET BY A SPRINGBOARDING CHRIS ELITE, WHO IS BACK IN THE FOLD AS HE RE-ENTERS THE RING BY CONNECTING WITH A SPRINGBOARD DROPKICK TO THE SHOULDER OF JAMIE O’HARA! IT JUST BARELY WENT UNDERNEATH THE FACE OF O’HARA BUT IT WAS ENOUGH TO LAY HIM OUT! THE CROWD IS FIRED UP AS THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION IS BACK IN IT, BUT ANDREI SOKOLOVA REMAINS ON THE OUTSIDE!

Nick Angel: Chris Elite takes Impact by the arm and forces him back up to a vertical base! Impact’s chest is red and he has that glazed-over look in his eyes after being subject to the physical punishment of former World Champion Jamie O’Hara, and now Chris Elite with a shoot-style kick to the back of Impact’s calf, and another! AND CHRIS ELITE WITH A SPINNING WHEEL KICK — BUT IMPACT GRABS ELITE’S LEG IN MID-AIR, AND NOW HE HEARKENS BACK TO THE DAYS OF YORE AS HE HAS THE ANKLE LOCK APPLIED! IMPACT MAYBE PAYING HOMAGE TO STARR STAN, OR IS HE THROWING SHADE? EITHER WAY, THE MOVE IS IN IMPACT’S ARSENAL AND IT’S CAUSING CHRIS ELITE TO WRITHE IN AGONY RIGHT NOW! IMPACT IS REARING BACK ON THAT ANKLE LOCK SUBMISSION HOLD, HE DOESN’T WANT CHRIS ELITE TO BE HOPPING AROUND AND USING HIS INCREDIBLE AGILITY TO TILT THE TIDES OF THIS MATCH AND ULTIMATELY RETAIN! AND NOW WHAT’S THIS?! IMPACT DELIBERATELY RELEASES CHRIS ELITE FROM THE ANKLE LOCK AS HE SEES ANDREI SOKOLOVA MAKING HIS WAY BACK INTO THE RING, AND A DROPKICK TO SOKOLOVA LEVELS HIM! IMPACT IS BACK UP IMMEDIATELY AND NOW HE DARTS TOWARD THE ROPES, SPRINGBOARDING AND TRYING TO LAND HIS PATENTED LIONSAULT — BUT IT’S JAMIE O’HARA OUT OF NOWHERE, CATCHING THE SEVEN-TIME WORLD CHAMPION IN MID-AIR, TAKING HIM UP AND CONNECTING WITH A POWERSLAM!

Kawajai: Impact didn’t expect that one bit, and you can tell from the “ooh’s” and “aah’s” in the crowd that none of these very fine people in Japan expected it, either! AND NOW AFTER O’HARA RISES TO A VERTICAL BASE, SOKOLOVA IS BACK UP AND HE CONNECTS WITH A BRIDGING GERMAN SUPLEX FROM BEHIND! THE PIN!

Ref: ONEEEEEEEEEEE!!!…. TWOOOOOOOO!!!…

Nick Angel: AND CHRIS ELITE MANAGES TO BREAK UP THE PIN IN THE NICK OF TIME WITH A FOREARM SMASH TO THE BACK OF ANDREI SOKOLOVA! CHRIS ELITE MAY HAVE JUST SAVED HIS WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP! BUT ANDREI SOKOLOVA STILL ISN’T FAZED, THE MAN IS INCENSED AND CHRIS ELITE IS SUCKING WIND AS ANDREI SOKOLOVA TURNS AROUND AND YANKS HIM BY THE THROAT FROM A GROUNDED POSITION! ELITE KNOWS HE MESSED UP AS ANDREI SOKOLOVA RISES TO A VERTICAL BASE AND USES HIS IMMENSE STRENGTH TO TAKE CHRIS ELITE UP ALONG WITH HIM! ANDREI SOKOLOVA IS CHOKING THE LIFE OUT OF CHRIS ELITE, AND NOW HE TAKES HIM UP HIGH IN THE AIR AND HE’S GOING TO SLAM HIM DOWN, HE’S GOING TO CHOKESLAM CHRIS ELITE! NO! AS SOKOLOVA WAS TRYING TO BRING ELITE DOWN, THE AGILE WORLD CHAMPION MANAGED TO SIDESTEP IT, AND FROM BEHIND SOKOLOVA HE CONNECTS WITH A STIFF KNEE TO THE BACK OF ANDREI! ANDREI’S BODY IS HALF THE WAY DOWN, AND NOW ELITE WITH AN AXE KICK TO THE BACK OF SOKOLOVA! IT CONNECTS! THE AXE KICK CONNECTS, AND IT’S IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWED UP WITH A STANDING MOONSAULT TO SOKOLOVA FOLLOWED BY A LATERAL PRESS PIN!

Ref: ONEEEEEEEEEEE!!!… TWOOOOOOOOO!!!!….

Kawajai: But a kickout from Sokolova! Elite managed to get in some more offense against Sokolova, but the man just refuses to go down without a fight! Elite has a look of disbelief in his eyes as he bangs his fist against the mat in frustration before once again rising to his feet. Elite is measuring Andrei Sokolova as Impact and Jamie O’Hara remain laid out in the ring. In fact, Impact has now rolled out to the outside — smart move by the veteran to regain some stamina, but not if Elite finishes the match right here! Elite is up to his feet and he tries to capitalize on the dazed Andrei Sokolova. Sokolova’s slowly getting up, he’s on one knee, and now Elite builds momentum and charges forward with a whole head of steam — WHO SHOT YA! THE PENALTY KICK! — BUT IT’S INTERCEPTED BY THE RECOVERED JAMIE O’HARA WHO TRANSITIONS THE MANEUVER INTO A DRAGON SCREW LEG WHIP, COMPLETELY FLOORING AND BLINDSIDING CHRIS ELITE! THAT’S GOTTA FEEL GOOD TO DO AGAINST THE GUY THAT’S WEARING THE TITLE O’HARA THINKS SHOULD STILL BE HIS!

Nick Angel: And O’Hara goes right back to work on Chris Elite, connecting with a boot stomp to the shoulder of the grounded World Heavyweight Champion, and as Elite is writhing in agony on the ground O’Hara just walks over him, now pressing both boots over the chest of Chris Elite and tugging on the bottom of the ropes for leverage! O’Hara is savoring every bit of this right now, and finally breaks off of Elite after multiple moments! Chris Elite is clutching his chest in pain, but again O’Hara doesn’t waste a moment of time as he forces Elite to rise back up to his feet. O’Hara now drapes his arm over the head of Chris Elite, and Elite is struggling to stay down as O’Hara tries to hoist him high up in the air, aiming a flurry of punches in the midsection of O’Hara, but most of them missing as O’Hara tries to subdue Elite by kneeing him in the gut, and he’s got him! Elite is limp as O’Hara lifts him vertically in the air and take him down, maybe for some kind of Suplex — BUT A DIVING CROSSBODY FROM THE TOP ROPE OUT OF NOWHERE BY ANDREI SOKOLOVA! THAT’S A MOVE NOT IN THE REGULAR ARSENAL OF ANDREI SOKOLOVA, AND HE TAKES JAMIE O’HARA DOWN AND ALONG WITH HIM CHRIS ELITE! ELITE DIDN’T EXPERIENCE THE BRUNT OF THAT FALL, HE JUST SLID OFF O’HARA AND NOW HE’S REGROUPING IN THE CORNER — AND NOW A HOOK OF THE LEG OF JAMIE O’HARA BY ANDREI SOKOLOVA! NEW CHAMP!

Ref: ONEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!… TWOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!

Kawajai: IMPACT RE-ENTERS THE RING AND IMMEDIATELY CONNECTS WITH THE LIONSAULT TO BREAK UP THE PIN ON JAMIE O’HARA! YOU WOULD THINK IMPACT WOULD BE FINE WITH JAMIE O’HARA TAKING THE PINFALL, BUT MAYBE IMPACT WASN’T BEING ENTIRELY HONEST ABOUT NOT BEING IN IT FOR CHAMPIONSHIPS! THAT WAS A “QUINTESSENTIAL CHAMPION” MOVE BY IMPACT RIGHT THERE AS HE SITS UP WITH THIS SMUG, SELF-SATISFIED GRIN ON HIS FACE!

Nick Angel: BUT FROM BEHIND IMPACT, RIGHT AS HE LIFTS HIS HEAD IT’S CHRIS ELITE WITH ANOTHER PENALTY KICK! WHO SHOT YA! CHRIS ELITE LAYS IMPACT OUT AS HE FALLS TO THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING AGAIN ON THE FOLLOW-THROUGH! AND NOW ELITE WITH THE BIONIC FOOT STOMP ON ANDREI SOKOLOVA! ELITE IS CLEANING HOUSE RIGHT NOW AS HE SETS HIS SIGHTS ON JAMIE O’HARA, AND NOW HE’S GOT HIM UP AND HE’S SETTING HIM UP FOR A VERTICAL SUPLEX, BUT O’HARA IS STRUGGLING, THE TWO ARE SWIRLING AROUND AND NOW ELITE HAS POSITION ON HIM AS THE TWO MEN ARE PRESSED UP AGAINST THE ROPES — AND A VERTICAL SUPLEX ON JAMIE O’HARA SENDS HIM CRASHING SHOULDER-FIRST ON THE OUTSIDE! WOW! YOU COULD HEAR THE THUD AS THE FORMER CHAMPION’S BACK CRASHED INTO THE OUTSIDE MAT, AND NOW IT’S JUST HIM AND IMPACT ALONE TRYING TO RECUPERATE ON THE OUTSIDE!

Kawajai: But on the inside of the ring it’s Chris Elite with Andrei Sokolova! AND ELITE IMMEDIATELY DASHES TOWARD THE TURNBUCKLES, WALKING UP THEM UNTIL HE’S ON THE THIRD RUNG OF THE ROPES, AND HE’S THERE! ELITE HOLDS ONTO THE ROPES FROM BOTH SIDES TO PROPERLY POSITION HIMSELF AS HE LOOKS AT THE DOWNED ANDREI SOKOLOVA! THE CROWD IS BRIMMING WITH ANTICIPATION, AND ELITE LEAPS AND CONTORTS HIS BODY FOR THE 630 SENTON ON ANDREI SOKOLOVA, THIS IS GONNA HURT! — NO!!! KNEES UP! ANDREI SOKOLOVA GOT THE KNEES UP ON CHRIS ELITE! THAT MOVE COULD HAVE FINISHED THE MATCH BUT SOKOLOVA HAD OTHER PLANS IN MIND, AND I THINK ONE OF THOSE KNEES OF ANDREI’S MAY HAVE DAMAGED THE TRACHEA OF CHRIS ELITE AS IT HIT THROAT-FIRST! ELITE IS CLUTCHING HIS THROAT IN AGONY, AND SOKOLOVA SEEMED TO HAVE BEEN PLAYING POSSUM AS HE GETS RIGHT BACK UP AFTER THAT FAILED 630 SENTON ATTEMPT BY CHRIS ELITE! SOKOLOVA HAS A SMIRK ON HIS FACE LIKE HE HAD A PLAN ALL ALONG, AND HE’S LOOKING TO CAPITALIZE NOW!

Nick Angel: What’s this?? Impact on the outside of the ring has taken the steel steps and is now toting them high above his head like a flag, STALKING Jamie O’Hara — BUT HE’S NOT WAITING FOR HIM TO TURN AROUND AS HE LAUNCHES HIMSELF INTO HIM, STEEL STEPS AND ALL, AND BASHES THE STEEL STEPS TO THE BACK OF THE SKULL OF O’HARA! O’HARA IS OUT OF COMMISSION! IMPACT MAY HAVE KNOCKED O’HARA UNCONSCIOUS JUST THEN AND THERE, AND HE SEEMS TO HAVE ACCOMPLISHED HIS GOAL THUS FAR WHICH WAS TO SCREW JAMIE O’HARA OVER! NOT WITHOUT AN ASSIST FROM CHRIS ELITE WHO CONNECTED WITH THE VERTICAL SUPLEX, BUT WOW! AND NOW WHAT’S THIS?? IMPACT MAKES A HAND GESTURE AS IF HE’S ABANDONING THE MATCH, HE WAVES OFF CHRIS ELITE AND ANDREI SOKOLOVA IN THE RING AND IS WALKING BACK UP THE RAMP AND LEAVING! IMPACT’S TAILING IT OUT OF JAPAN!

Kawajai: Sokolova is now all alone in the ring with Chris Elite. Medical professionals are attending to Jamie O’Hara on the outside as he still hasn’t moved a muscle. Andrei Sokolova is sizing Chris Elite up, and now he forces him back up to his feet, just jerking him by the hand and afterward connecting with a thumb to the eye of Elite to obscure his vision! Elite is sent staggering back, backed up against the turnbuckles, and now Sokolova takes Chris Elite forward — BUT A SPINNING BACKFIST FROM CHRIS ELITE! ELITE IS STILL CLUTCHING ONTO HIS THROAT AFTERWARD, BUT HE CONNECTS WITH THAT SPINNING BACKFIST AND IT SENDS ANDREI SOKOLOVA STAGGERING BACK! SOKOLOVA TURNS HIS HEAD AROUND TO MEET ELITE HEAD-ON, BUT IT’S ELITE WITH THE BOX OFFICE SMASH! THE BOX OFFICE SMASH CONNECTS! THAT SUPERKICK PLANTS ANDREI SOKOLOVA AND CHRIS ELITE IS GOING TO HOOK THE LEG AND RETAIN HIS CHAMPIONSHIP!

Nick Angel: EVISCERATION!!!!! EVISCERATION!!! IMPACT SPRINTED THROUGH THE CROWD, RUNNING BACK INTO THE RING AND PLANTING CHRIS ELITE WITH THE EVISCERATION! IMPACT WAS LYING ALL ALONG! HE WANTED THE EAW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP AND NOW HE COLLAPSES OVER CHRIS ELITE FOR THE COVER! EIGHT REIGNS!

Ref: ONEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!….. TWOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!…. THRRRRRRRR—

Kawajai: KICKOUT!!! CHRIS ELITE KICKS OUT OF IMPACT’S EVISCERATION AND IMPACT IS IN DISBELIEF! HE’S BANGING HIS FISTS ON THE MAT NOW, STOMPING AND KICKING AND SCREAMING AT THE REFEREE! IMPACT TAKES A MOMENT TO REGROUP AND HE’S NOW SMACKING CHRIS ELITE ACROSS THE FACE! THE CHAMPION IS GROUNDED, HE CAN’T DEFEND HIMSELF, AND IMPACT IS EXPLOITING HIM AT HIS MOST VULNERABLE! IMPACT GRABS CHRIS ELITE BY THE HAND AND HE’S GOT HIM BACK TO A VERTICAL BASE — AND IMPACT SPITS IN CHRIS ELITE’S FACE! IMPACT HAS BURIED RESENTMENT FOR CHRIS ELITE INSIDE SINCE HOUSE OF GLASS 2015 WHEN ELITE HIT THE BOX OFFICE SMASH EXTREME ON IMPACT WITH GLASS SHARDS IN HIS MOUTH! ELITE TRIES TO WIPE THE SPIT OUT OF HIS FACE AND IMPACT CHARGES FORWARD FOR A SECOND EVISCERATION!!! EVISCERATION!!!

NICK ANGEL: ELITE THROWS IMPACT OFF OF HIM BEFORE IMPACT IS ABLE TO BRING HIM DOWN WITH THE EVISCERATION, BACKING IMPACT AGAINST THE TURNBUCKLES, BUT IMPACT IS UNDETERRED AS HE MARCHES FORWARD WITH CHRIS ELITE’S VISION STILL OBSCURED — ?!?!?! BOX OFFICE SMASHHHHHHH!!!! THE BOX OFFICE SMASH LANDS SQUARELY IN THE JAW OF IMPACT! THE SUPERKICK CONNECTS AND AN ABSOLUTELY EXHAUSTED CHRIS ELITE COLLAPSES OVER IMPACT FOR THE COVER! SOKOLOVA HASN’T REGAINED ENOUGH STRENGTH TO BREAK IT UP!

Ref: ONEEEEEEEEE!!!!!…. TWOOOOOOOOOOO…. THRRRR—-

(Andrei Sokolova inches near, trying to break up the pin…)

THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

(“Odee” by A Boogie hits as Chris Elite is handed his World Heavyweight Championship. Sokolova holds his head down in discontent, frustrated about not being able to break up the pin)

Rebecca Sawyer: The winner of this match… and STILL WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONNNNNN…. CHRISSSSS ELITEEEEEE!!!!

Kawajai: Elite did exactly what he said he was going to do! Impact did, too, but his actions at the end kinda contradicted his stated intentions. He said he wasn’t concerned with championships, just with screwing over O’Hara, and he succeeded in screwing over O’Hara after a well-timed assist from Elite, but after abandoning the match he re-entered the fray, racing through the crowd and back into the ring to deliver an Evisceration to Elite that shocked everyone! In that moment, the entire capacity crowd here in the Ryogoku Sumo Hall in Tokyo, Japan thought Impact had securely notched his eighth World Championship reign in EAW!

Nick Angel: Not to be denied, Chris Elite went and outdid himself. In a lot of ways, Chris Elite has Impact’s number! Maybe the win-loss column hasn’t always been the kindest to Chris Elite when facing Impact, but every time Elite’s gotten in the ring with Impact he’s managed to do some serious damage. A great effort from Andrei Sokolova, and Jamie O’Hara was controlling the match up until that Vertical Suplex to the outside opened up the floodgates for Impact’s cowardly blindsided assault with the steel steps!

Kawajai: Something tells me that business is far from finished with Impact and O’Hara. Andrei Sokolova proved he was built for the heavyweight fight, so early on in his EAW career too, but he did it. Only one man can walk away World Heavyweight Champion, though, and tonight that’s the guy who came in with the title — Chris Elite!

(Xander Payne is shown rushing down the hallway frantically looking around until he finally comes across a door that says “Matt Daniels” on it, he barges in)

Xander: Did you see that?!?! Did you????!!!

Matt Daniels: :whoa: Did your mother not teach you any manners? Barging into my office unannounced like that you don’t know what I could have been doing behind closed doors! But what was I supposed to see?

Xander: You mean to tell me you were too busy playing with yourself to watch a match on your own brand’s show? You missed my make my mark here in EAW! I’m officially the number one contender for the New Breed Championship.

Matt Daniels: Oh no trust me I’m very well aware, I just didn’t know it was something I was supposed to be keeping with me for the rest of my life when I have things like an NWO match and a WHC match to determine my Pain for Pride main event on the horizon. But what am I supposed to do with this info?

Xander: This is what you do with it, for once you not doing your job can actually pay off. You can let ME determine when I want to use that opportunity to compete for the New Breed Championship.

Matt Daniels: When would you like to?

Xander: I thought you’d never ask, well quite frankly I don’t see any better place to do such a thing BUT the place I was born and bred for. Because you see this?

(Xander points to the slogan on his shirt that says #PayneForPride)

Xander: This isn’t just a catchy slogan I’m yelling out because I want my cut of the merch sales, this isn’t just me being cool and edgy by spelling Pain for Pride differently. This is me on an absolute fucking mission, that mission is to walk into Pain for Pride and turn it into PAYNE for Pride as I walk out of it with that New Breed Championship on my shoulders. That’s been a dream of mine forever, and now here’s my chance to make it a reality, so what do you say?

Matt Daniels: Well you certainly represent the New Breed division as well as anyone here on not just Voltage, but EAW period and it’s funny you bring this to me. I had a meeting with the other GM’s and commissioners of both Showdown and Dynasty and we all agreed to have a contender from each brand represent their respective brand at Pain for Pride in a match for the New Breed Champion. You just became Voltage’s representative, congrats.

Xander: I don’t need the congrats, my mission is far from over. Wait till I finish it by snatching that championship in Las Vegas.

( The camera cuts to the ring where Rebecca Sawyer is standing by with a mic in hand. Above the ring is a twenty foot No Way Out structure. The four secondary cells begin to descend.)

Sawyer: the following contest is scheduled for one fall!

(Wild boys by Duran Duran starts up)

Sawyer: introducing first from Rancho Cucamonga, California, at at total combined weight of 350 pounds, Billy and Jimmy, THE WWWWWIIIILLLLDDDD BBBOOOYYYYS!!!!

(Billy and Jimmy step thru the curtain full of swagger)

Angel: well these two guys look to prove themselves here as tag team and you have to think they have the advantage seeing as their opponents don’t see eye to eye

Kawajai: you got that right I’m predicting a Quick victory here tonight.

(The wild boys sling shot over the top rope into the ring there music fades and in its place let’s go all the way by insane clown posse blast over the speakers)

Sawyer: and thier opponents first from Long Island, New York, weighing in at 225 pounds, the tattooed nightmare, NNNNEEEEMMMEEESSSSIIISSS!!!

(Nemesis walks down to the ring with a twisted grin painted on his face)

Angel : lord know what evil plans are brewing in that man’s mind tonight)

Kawajai: say that again, i haven’t gotten jitters about another elitist since Solomon Caine was last seen.

(Nemesis stands on the apron staring with wicked intent at billy and Jimmy. As he does his taunt, “Can’t Be Touched” by Roy Jones Jr. hits as Terry Chambers quickly makes his way down to the ring)

Sawyer: and his partner from Detroit, Michigan, weighing 287 pounds, the Silent Killer, TTTEEERRRRRRYYY CCCCHHHHAAAAMMBBBNEEEERRRRSSS!!’

(The towing chambers steps out past the curtain)

Angel: strength and power personified Terry can change an entire match with just a few big moves

Kawajai: yes but tonight you can expect the attacks to come from everywhere maybe even from behind him the question is can chambers keep up.

(Terry steps up and over the top rope into the ring)

(DING DING DING)

Angel: Terry starting things off against Billy…

Nemesis (no mic): CHAMBERS! CHAMBERS!!

(Terry turns towards nemesis)

Angel: Nemesis just flipped off Terry Chambers, and now where’s he going?!?

(Nemesis hops off the apron and heads back up the ramp)

Kawajai: chambers barking at Nemesis to get back on the apron but he pays no mind, meanwhile Billy signal to Jimmy who joins him in the ring. The Wild lying in wait looking to capitalize off the distraction, Chambers about to get these feet… SUPERKICKS IN STEREO!!!

Angel: NO! Chambers catching both Wild boys by their feet Terry pulls them both in and now has a hand around each of their necks! What power as he lifts both up with one arm each… JIMMY GETS CHOKESLAMMED RIGHT TO THE CANVAS!!!! AND BILLY GETS SLAMED ROGHT ON TOP OF JIMMY!!! CHAMBERS WASTING NO TIME NOW WITH THE COVER!

Ref: ONEEEE!!!…. TWOOOO!!!… THREEEEEEEE!!!!

(DING DING DING)

(“Can’t be Touched” by Roy Jones Jr. hits as a disenchanted Terry Chambers rolls out of the ring in frustration after being abandoned by Nemesis)

Sawyer: The winner of this contest by pinfall, Nemesis and Terry Chambers!!!

Kawajai: I called it, a quick victory here tonight!

Angel: What?! You said the Wild boys were gonna win!

Kawajai: No I didn’t.

Angle: Oh, give me a break.

(The Revenant is shown backstage with his manager Bo Maro as he’s preparing for the upcoming NWO match)

Bo Maro: Everything culminates to this one moment Rev, just remember to stick with the plan and keep your eyes on the prize and we’ll have his in the bag.

Rev: I don’t need the reminder Bo, I know what’s at stake here. If anything you should be more worried about my opponents than me. I know what I’m gonna do in the match, and that’s absolutely dismantle every fucking person who stands in my way. Especially that Harlem scum Malcolm Jones who I’m going to lay to waste just like he wastes money on plastic and rubber pieces of garbage. I’ve been waiting for this moment for a long time, I won’t waste it.

Bo Maro: That’s the spirit, this company knows you’re the real star and they know you’re the future of this business. Not everybody is capable of being placed into two multiple man matches in back to back days with championship incentives in the grasp. But being simply placed into these situations mean nothing outside of the fact that there’s faith put into you. But the rest is up to you to justify said faith and make it even more meaningful by winning that match.

Rev: That faith was placed onto me for a reason, because they know that I’m the real deal and they know what to expect when it comes to The Dreadknight. Not everything in this business is a sure thing, but when it comes to my success.. It’s guaranteed.

( DING! DING! DING! )

Rebecca Sawyer: This match is scheduled for ONE FALL and is a NO WAY OUT MATCH! The winner of this match will be the NEW NUMBER ONE CONTENDER FOR THE EAW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP!

( The crowd becomes ecstatic as Rebecca stands by with a smile on her face. )

Rebecca Sawyer: The first four entrants will be locked into these prison-like cells and will be elevated to the top corners of the structure when the match begins. Every FIVE minutes a new entrant will descend and join the match. Once ALL entrants are in the ring, the first pinfall or submission will be the new NUMBER ONE CONTENDER! Are you ready…?

( The crowd continues the roar of cheers. Rebecca places the mic back up to her mouth. )

Rebecca Sawyer: Introducing first…

( The lights dim in the arena as “For Whom The Bell Tolls” by Metallica begins to play. The crowd erupts into a deafening cheer as The Revenant steps out onto the stage with some security guards and his manager, Bo Maro. The security guards guard the entrance as Revenant and Bo Maro make their way down the ramp. )

Rebecca Sawyer: Weighing in at two hundred and forty-five pounds… From Chicago, Illinois… He is the current EAW New Breed Champion… THEEEEE REVVEENNANNTTTTTTTT!!!!

Kawajai: Here comes the New Breed Champion! Coming off a loss last week, he’s looking to head into the following weeks as the New Breed Champ and the Number ONe Contender for the World Heavyweight Championship!

( The Revenant steps into his cell as “Nightmare” by Avenged Sevenfold starts to play. The crowd bursts into cheers as Erebus Jennings steps onto the stage. He makes his way to the ring. )

Rebecca Sawyer: Weighing in at two hundred and forty pounds… From Parts Unknown… “The Forthcoming of Darkness”… EREEBUUSSS JENNINNGGSSSS!!!!

Nick Angel: Since attacking Terry Chambers in his return, he’s been on the hunt for some Gold and a win here tonight would put him that much closer to doing just that.

( Erebus steps into his cell as “Carrera Lu” by Lupe Fiasco echoes throughout the arena. The whole stage glows a flashing rainbow assortment of colors and smoke billows through the curtain until the entire stage is covered in smoke. Flames start pulsing up from the parts of the stage, and Mr. DEDEDE trolls out with confidence, and walks halfway down the ramp before stopping and lifting both pinkies in the air instead of the corna — inciting an eruption of pyro from the stage behind him. )

Rebecca Sawyer: Weighing in at two hundred and twenty-nine pounds… From Bridgeport, Connecticut… He is “The Sheriff” of the Gay Meat Community… MRRRRR DEEEEDEEEEEDEEEEEE!!!

Kawajai: Mr. DEDEDE is no stranger to World Championship matches nor is he a stranger to high intensity matches like this No Way Out match. This isn’t his first NWO match either. Wouldn’t be surprised if he’s the winner tonight.

( Mr. DEDEDE steps into the cell and looks absolutely happy to be in there as a raven sound blares throughout the arena, a precursor to his theme, before “FTW (F**k the World)” by A$AP Rocky & Tom Morello blasts from the speakers of the arena. The lights flash to the sound of the guitar and fast drum beat and A$AP’s rapping.. Dark purple and red lights cascade down onto the ring before Lars Grier comes out, wearing his usual attire and walking slowly and intently down to the ring. As the song hits the chorus, his movements become much more distinct and energetic, as he steps onto the top rope, posing for the crowd. )

Rebecca Sawyer: Weighing in at two hundred and sixty-five pounds… From Cincinnati, Ohio… “The Raven”… LARRSSS GRRRIIIEERRRR!!!!!!!!

Nick Angel: You know, Lars has been trying and trying to capture a World Championship and I’m on his side tonight. I think tonight will be it and he’ll go on to face whoever the Champion is at Pain For Pride!

( Lars steps into his cell as “Pray For Em” by Meek Mill begins to play. Malcolm Jones steps out onto the stage to a roar of cheers and a standing ovation. He makes his way to the ring. )

Rebecca Sawyer: Weighing in at two hundred and thirty pounds… From Harlem, New York… “The Wave”… MALCOLMMMM JONNEESSSS!!!!!!

Kawajai: There’s no doubt in my mind that Malcolm has what it takes to face the World Heavyweight Champion. With the competition in this match tonight, it’s hard for me to just pinpoint who I think is going to win. It would be cool to see him face his Blicky Boyz partner in Chris Elite for the Title.

( Malcolm faces towards the stage as “Disease” by Ghosts of Augusts starts to play. Liam walks out with his hood up and bandana on. He then takes both off at the same time, as water comes out of his mouth. He pulls his bandana back on, and walks down to the ring, until he gets up on the top rope. He spreads his arms out, then jumps down onto the mat. )

Rebecca Sawyer: Lastly… Weighing in at two hundred and twenty-five pounds… From Ballymum, Dublin, Ireland… “The Outlaw”… LIAAMMMM ARRCHHEERRRR!!!

Nick Angel: Personally, I think Liam is out of his league in this match, but that doesn’t mean he won’t step it up. That’s just how I feel.

Kawajai: Now we know that Liam and Malcolm will be the ones to start us out in this No Way Out Match!

( The primary cell lowers as Malcolm Jones and Liam Archer stare at it the entire time. The four secondary cells elevate to the corners of the structure. )

( DING! DING! DING! )

Kawajai: NO WAY OUT MATCH HAS BEGUN! Malcolm and Liam inch closer to one another and they lock up in the middle of the ring. Liam immediately pulls Malcolm’s head down into a headlock, but Malcolm pushes him off to send him into the ropes! Liam stops abruptly and turns around. He meets a fist to the face from Malcolm! And another! Malcolm pulls Liam’s head down and drives his knee right into it. He grabs a hold of his head again, this time for a snap suplex that connects! He can’t go for the cover until everyone is in the ring, so he stands above Liam and lifts himself up for a Standing Shooting Star Press. Malcolm is in complete control over Liam right now, but still has twenty minutes before he can even pin or make someone submit. He’s gonna have to conserve some energy for later! He takes a second and waits for Liam as he starts to get back on his feet. Malcolm grabs a hold of his head before he does and pulls him up himself. He throws a forearm straight to Liam’s jaw! Then an elbow! He goes for a right hook! LIAM BLOCKS IT! Liam throws a right hook of his own. Left hook! Right hook! He spins around to the back of Malcolm now… DOUBLE KNEE BACKBREAKER! IT CONNECTS! Malcolm is in pain and quickly rolls out of the ring to the exposed cement! Liam takes a second to himself to gather himself after the beating he’s been taking.

Nick Angel: LIAM IS RUNNING AT THE ROPES, WHAT IS HE THINKING? HE JUMPS ON THE TOP ROPE… MALCOLM JONES IS ON HIS FEET… SPRINGBOARD TORNADO DDT AND LIAM DRIVES MALCOLM’S HEAD INTO THE EXPOSED CEMENT! OH MY GOD! HIS BODY IS LAID AGAINST THE CELL NOW AND HE’S NOT MOVING! Liam is well aware of the damage he’s done to Malcolm which is proof in the smirk on his face. This is the type of match to change a man for good! He leans against the cell for a few seconds and takes a deep breath. Now grabbing a hold of Malcolm, he lifts him up to his feet and he’s almost lifeless still! Liam attempts to throw him into the prison bars of the cell structure, but Malcolm just collapses back down to the cement! This match might already be over for him as he may have suffered a severe injury brought on by Liam Archer! He turns his back and starts to look at the four prisoners hanging from above.

Liam Archer (without mic): WHO’S NEXT?

Kawajai: Oh boy, this kid is getting ahead of himself very quickly. AND LOOK! MALCOLM SOLD IT SO WELL HE’S NOT EVEN AFFECTED BY THE TORNADO DDT! HE MUST’VE HAD HIS HANDS ON HIS HEAD OR SOMETHING AS HE RUNS HE LIAM RIGHT NOW! HE SHOVES HIM FROM BEHIND INTO THE PRISON BARS AND THEN WRAPS HIS ARMS AROUND HIS WAIST! DDD IS LOOKING DOWN AT THEM AND LOOKS JEALOUS RIGHT NOW! GERMAN SUPLEX AND LIAM LANDS ON HIS NECK ON THE EXPOSED CEMENT! Now THAT had to hurt… Malcolm looks unfazed by the earlier move and he got us all honestly.

Nick Angel: He worked us.

( Kawajai shakes his head. )

Kawajai: Anyways… Malcolm slides back into the ring as the countdown starts for the next entrant!

( TEN! NINE! EIGHT! SEVEN! SIX! FIVE! FOUR! )

Nick Angel: Liam is starting to get back to his feet already!

( THREE! TWO! ONEEE! )

( Lars Grier’s cell starts to lower and the door opens, allowing him to enter the ring. )

Nick Angel: LARS GRIER INCOMING! HE SPRINTS AT LIAM ARCHER WHO IS STILL A LITTLE DAZED! RAVENBEAK! LARS ENTERS AND SPEARS THE HELL OUT OF LIAM! HIS BODY FOLDED AND IS LAID OUT RIGHT NOW! Lars stands outside of the ring now as Malcolm looks down at him from inside of the ring. He’s calling for Lars to get into the ring. LARS SLIDES INTO THE RING AND MALCOLM CHARGES RIGHT TO HIM AS THEY BOTH START CLUBBING EACH OTHER! Malcolm throws a right hook! Lars throws a right hook! Malcolm throws an elbow to his jaw! Lars throws one back! Malcolm throws another– LARS GRABS HIS ARM AND FLIPS HIM OVER HIS BODY AND DROPS DOWN TO DRIVE HIS KNEE INTO HIS BACK WHILE EXTENDING HIS ARM! He’s got a submission locked in but even if Malcolm was to submit nothing would happen!

Kawajai: This is smart by Lars if you think about it. He’s weakening his opponent and creating an opportunity for later by targeting Malcolm’s arm, which he’s obviously going to need! He extends that arm further back, causing his knee to drive deeper into his back. Lars locks Malcolm’s arm on his knee with his left arm and clubs his chest with his right arm. And again! Wait look at Malcolm… HE LIFTS HIS KNEE UP AND KNEES LARS RIGHT IN THE FACE! Lars is forced to weaken the hold, allowing Malcolm to move freely. He pulls his arm away from Lars and from a kneeling position starts to throw punches at him! He’s got Lars dazed right now after the knees and punches! Malcolm rises to his feet and runs against the ropes… ENZIGURI! LARS FALLS TO THE MAT AND SO DOES MALCOLM! He’s still feeling the pain from the submission Lars had locked in and I’m sure it’s taking its toll on him currently!

Nick Angel: Malcolm stretches his arm out and then gets back to his feet. He looks at Lars who’s trying to get back to his feet now and immediately kicks him back down! He drops down with a forearm smash to a grounded Lars now! Malcolm grabs Lars by the hair and pulls him up to his feet and he’s about to send him into the ropes! WAIT NO! MALCOLM IS THROWING LARS INTO THE EXPOSED TURNBUCKLES NOW! THERE’S NO PADDING AND THIS ISN’T GOOD! HE’S GOT LARS ON THE RUN AND PUTS SOME EXTRA STRENGTH INTO IT! LARS IS ABLE TO STOP HIMSELF BEFORE COLLIDING WITH IT AND GRABS A HOLD OF THE ROPES! Malcolm runs directly to Lars now… LARS THROWS AN ELBOW BACK AND STUNS MALCOLM! HE GRABS A HOLD OF HIS HEAD AND GOES TO SLAM IT INTO THE EXPOSED METAL THAT IS THE TURNBUCKLE! MALCOLM IS FIGHTING IT STILL!

Kawajai: AN ELBOW STRAIGHT TO LARS’ JAW FROM MALCOLM AND LARS STAGGERS BACK! PELE KICK! THE PELE KICK CONNECTS FROM MALCOLM! I just realized in all this time, Liam Archer has been out on the side of the ring until now when he’s finally starting to show consciousness. And the countdown begins for the next entrant!

( TEN! NINE! EIGHT! SEVEN! SIX! FIVE! )

Nick Angel: Liam slides into the ring, but Malcolm notices! CLOTHESLINE FROM MALCOLM!

( FOUR! THREE! TWO! ONE! )

( Mr. DEDEDE’s cell starts to lower and he begins to clap his hands as his cell opens up. )

Kawajai: Mr. DEDEDE immediately slides into the ring and Malcolm is in a fighting stance, waiting to attack. DDD runs up to Malcolm and turns around to have his back facing him. What is he doing…?

Mr. DEDEDE (without a mic): Grab my waist like you did Liam’s, zaddy!

Nick Angel: Oh my god… you have to be kidding me…

Kawajai: Did he just call him zaddy?…

Nick Angel: Malcolm looks disgusted right now and instead of grabbing his waist HE CLUBS HIM IN THE BACK OF THE HEAD AND PULLS HIS HEAD DOWN AND PLACES HIM IN A SUPLEX POSITION! VERTICAL SUPLEX CONNECTS! AND LIAM COMES FROM BEHIND CLUBBING MALCOLM IN THE HEAD! HE GRABS A HOLD OF HIS HEAD NOW… HE’S DRAGGING HIM TO THE CORNER! LIAM IS LIFTING HIS HEAD UP NOW… AND SLAMS IT INTO THE EXPOSED METAL! HOLY HELL! HE DOES IT AGAIN! AND AGAIN! AND OH MY GOD MALCOLM IS BLEEDING! BLOOD HAS BEEN DRAWN! Liam lifts Malcolm to the top rope now and he steps up to the second rope. He pulls Malcolm’s arm behind his back AND HE’S LOOKING FOR THE POINT BLANK! AND… IT CONNECTS! THE HAMMERLOCK DDT OFF THE TOP ROPE! He can’t go for the cover and I think that’s bothering him right now! Liam rises back to his feet and notices Lars getting back to his feet. He charges at him right now!

Kawajai: LARS GRABS A HOLD OF HIM AND LIFTS HIM UP FOR THE PUMPHANDLE NECKBREAKER! MUNNIN’S VISION CONNECTS! FOR THE SECOND TIME LIAM IS LAID OUT, THIS TIME BY LARS GRIER! DDD is on his feet now and Lars turns around… SPEAR! SPEAR! SPEAR! WAIT NO LARS SLIDES OUT OF THE WAY! HE SPINS AROUND AND SWEEPS THE LEG OF DDD! DDD falls to the mat and Lars grabs a hold of his legs to get him in a wheelbarrow position. He’s lining him up as Lars has his back right up against the ropes… HE LIFTS HIM UP AND OVER AND DDD FLIES RIGHT INTO THE PRISON BARS! HEAD FIRST AND HE FALLS RIGHT DOWN TO THE EXPOSED CEMENT! LARS IS MAKING A STATEMENT TONIGHT! HE WANTS THAT WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH! DDD IS OUT OF THE RING LAID OUT! MALCOLM IS BLEEDING AND OUT RIGHT NOW! LIAM IS OUT COLD! EREBUS IS THE ONLY MAN STANDING!

( TEN! NINE! EIGHT! SEVEN! )

Nick Angel: Here is the countdown for our second to last entrant and with no one else moving, they’ll be going face-to-face with Lars!

( SIX! FIVE! FOUR! THREE! TWO! ONE! )

( Erebus Jennings’ cell lowers and the door opens. )

Kawajai: Erebus slowly walks out of the cell and stares down Lars Grier who’s standing in the ring, waiting for him to enter. He steps up onto the apron AND LARS DOESN’T WASTE ANY TIME! HE CHARGES AT EREBUS! RAVENBEAK! THE SPEAR! IT CONNECTS AND EREBUS IS SENT BACK FIRST INTO THE PRISON BARS THEN COLLAPSES TO THE EXPOSED CEMENT JUST LIKE DDD DID! WAIT LOOK OUT FROM BEHIND! LARS TURNS AROUND AND THE C-NOTE FROM MALCOLM JONES! SPEAR FROM MALCOLM! HOLY SHIT DDD IS IN THE RING AND LOOKS AT MALCOLM WITH HIS TONGUE OUT! MALCOLM TURNS AROUND… SPEAR! SPEAR! SPEAR! HE TURNS HIM INSIDE OUT JUST LIKE OTHER MEMBERS OF THE GMC AND THAT’S BACK-TO-BACK-TO-BACK SPEARS! MALCOLM ROLLS OUT OF THE RING AND JUST LIKE THAT DDD IS THE ONLY MAN STANDING IN THE RING!

Nick Angel: BUT WAIT! LOOK AT LIAM ARCHER! HE’S ON THE TOP ROPE AND HE’S PULLING HIMSELF UP TO STAND ON THE SECONDARY CELL! WHAT THE HELL IS THIS KID THINKING? DDD TURNS AROUND AND LIAM IS STILL GETTING HIMSELF BALANCED! HOLY HELL! HOLY HELL! DDD RUNS ONTO THE TOP ROPE AND SWEEPS HIS LEG! LIAM CATCHES HIMSELF AND IS SEATED ON TOP OF THAT PRISON CELL NOW! JESUS I AM NERVOUS RIGHT NOW!… DDD HAS LIAM’S FACE LOCKED ON HIS SHOULDER… LIAM IS FIGHTING IT! DDD IS STARTING TO GET ENRAGED AND ABSOLUTELY DECKS THE HELL OUT OF LIAM! NOW DDD IS CLIMBING UP TO THE TOP OF THE PRISON CELL! LIAM AND DDD ARE WAY UP RIGHT NOW AND THIS ISN’T A GOOD SPOT FOR EITHER OF THEM TO BE IN! BOTH OF THEM STAND UP AND ARE TRYING TO BALANCE THEMSELVES AS THEY TRADE PUNCHES! BUT LIAM PUSHES DDD AND WHAT THE HELL! DDD SLIPS AND HIS LEGS FALL THROUGH THE BARS! HE LANDS BALLS AND DICK FIRST ON THAT STEEL BAR! HE’S GOT TO BE IN EXCRUCIATING PAIN RIGHT NOW!

( TEN! NINE! )

Kawajai: The countdown begins for the final entrant to be released from their cell and then the first pinfall or submission will be the winner! WHO WILL BECOME THE NEW NUMBER ONE CONTENDER FOR THE EAW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP?

( EIGHT! SEVEN! SIX! FIVE! FOUR! THREE! TWO! ONE! )

( The Revenant’s cell descends and the door opens. )

Nick Angel: Here we go! Next pinfall or submission wins!

Kawajai: Liam is dropping down from the cell after pushing DDD and causing great pain on his testicles! He’s on the top rope right now! AND HERE COMES REVENANT JUMPING UP TO THE TOP ROPE WITH LIAM! HE LIFTS HIM UP IN A VERTICAL SUPLEX POSITION… THE EXECUTIONER OFF THE TOP ROPE! THE JACKHAMMER OFF THE TOP ROPE! LIAM’S HEAD IS DRIVEN INTO THE MAT AND WITH HIGH IMPACT! REVENANT GOES FOR THE COVER AND THIS COULD BE IT JUST LIKE THAT!

Ref: ONEEE!!!

Nick Angel: EREBUS IS BACK IN THE RING WITH A BAT AND BREAKS UP THE PIN AT THE LAST SECOND BY SWINGING IT AT REVENANTS BACK! REVENANT IS IN PAIN AND FALLS OFF OF LIAM! Liam rolls out of the ring and Erebus is looking around to make sure no one is sneaking up on him. He lifts up the bat again and hammers it down into Revenant’s back once again! EREBUS PUTS THE BAT AGAINST REVENANT’S THROAT AND PULLS BACK ON HIM! HE’S CHOKING THE HELL OUT OF THE NEW BREED CHAMPION RIGHT NOW! LOOK HE’S WRAPPING HIS LEGS AROUND HIM NOW! HE’S GOT A SCISSORED CHOKEHOLD LOCKED IN WITH THAT BAT! REVENANT CAN TAP ANY SECOND AND THIS COULD BE OVER! EREBUS APPLIES MORE PRESSURE! MALCOLM IS IN THE RING AND HE’S GOT THE DRACO IN HIS HANDS! THE YOPPER IS IN THE RING! HE RUNS AT EREBUS AND SWINGS IT AT HIS FACE! EREBUS RELEASES THE HOLD AND THE DRACO TOOK SOME OF HIS FACE PAINT OFF!

Kawajai: LARS IS COMING BACK INTO THE RING WITH A CROWBAR NOW AS MALCOLM IS DRIVING THE BACK OF THE YOPPER ONTO EREBUS’ CHEST! LARS SWINGS THE CROWBAR AT MALCOLM BUT HE DODGES IT!

HE IS BLEEDING PROFUSELY AS HE ROLLS OUT OF THE RING!

Nick Angel: EREBUS IS UP AND LOOKS PISSED! THIS ISN’T GOING HOW HE WANTS IT TO TONIGHT! Malcolm turns around and you can see the blood slowly dripping from his face. Erebus has the bat in hand, but here comes Malcolm charging at him! EREBUS SWINGS THE BAT BUT MALCOLM BASEBALL SLIDES BETWEEN HIS LEGS! HE RISES BACK UP TO HIS FEET AND RUNS AT EREBUS AGAIN! HE TURNS AROUND AND TRIES TO DRIVE THE BAT INTO MALCOLM’S SKULL, BUT MALCOLM SIDESTEPS AND SMARTLY ROLLS OUT OF THE RING!

THRRRR—-

THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!

( DING! DING! DING! )

( “Pray for ‘Em” by Meek Mill blasts through the speakers and the crowd is on their feet screaming at the top of their lungs. DDD is in disbelief on the outside after Malcolm Jones took the pin. The ref holds Malcolm’s hand up)

Rebecca Sawyer: Here is your winner… AND THE NEW NUMBER ONE CONTENDER TO THE EAW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP… MALCOLMMMMMMM JONESSSS!!!!!

Kawajai: I am in awe right now. There are no words from what took place during this match. An absolute classic! If it doesn’t go down in the history books I’ll riot!

Nick Angel: Shut the hell up, Kawa, you won’t do anything. But can we please see that final move on replay real quick?

( A quick replay shows DDD on top of the prison cell. He runs across the bar on the top and dives off, connecting a spear down onto Liam Archer. It then shows Malcolm Jones playing possum on the outside and coming in to capitalize on DDD’s efforts, throwing him outside the ring and getting the pin on Liam)

Nick Angel: Everybody laid it on the line but in the end Malcolm Jones showed up and snatched opportunity.

Kawajai: Every single Elitist in this match put up the fight of their life. Their bodies were put on the line, some of them losing a lot of blood, some may even be suffering some serious injuries after this. Not a single one of them should be disappointed in their fight.

Nick Angel: Agreed. Everyone had their fair share of moments where they were either in control or not so much. In the end, Malcolm played the game he knows and waited till the very last second to strike and that’s why he’s now the Number One Contender for the EAW World Heavyweight Championship. What a great night, everybody. Tune into Voltage next week.From the Ryogoku Sumo Hall in Tokyo, Japan, I’m Nick Angel and this is my broadcast colleague Kawajai… Signing off!

(Camera pans in one more time on Malcolm Jones celebrating his victory, perched atop the turnbuckles with an ear-to-ear grin on his face as DDD walks to the back dejectedly)
