He’s here because he was to make Pain for Pride II his night of triumph! Starr wants this Interbranded Championship more than many people can understand, he wants his career to escalate…
Deadprez: And let’s not forget that this thing between him and HBB is purely competition! You could call this match the most competitive match in Pain for Pride, because Starr wants to prove that he is the single BEST wrestler in this business today! And When both guys like these want to prove a point like that on a stage like Pain for Pride.. well you do the math!
ETR: I’ll do the math after i add up how many times you’ve interrupted me tonight…

Stew-O: The Interbranded Champion, the man who has held this title coming into Pain for Pride has a HUGE task ahead of him! He has Starr… who has kept himself HOT on the Interbranded Champion’s trail! Tonight is the night where both of these men must battle, both of these men must simply outwrestle eachother if they want to survive! And personally, i’m sure that neither of these men are going to have any 2nd thoughts on anything heading into this!
( DING! DING! DING! )
Deadprez: That’s true, that’s true, both HBB and Starr are backed up at two opposite corners… Both men are having a staredown and are positioning themselves. Both HBB and Starr close in and are tieing up in the middle of the ring, both men are having a test of strength & technique…. which Starr over comes! Locking in the headlock!!! And HBB runs Starr backed into the Turnbuckle as Starr lets go, and HBB attempts an irish whip into the alternative Turnbuckle… but Starr REVERSES with a Kitchen Sink knee into the gut, as HBB frontflips over, stumbles and tumbles from inbetween the ropes to the outside of the ring! HBB swings to his feet, and HBB is staring up at Starr who is in the ring as Starr is beckoning to HBB to enter the ring!
ETR: HBB goes up the steel steps into the ring, and both men are in the middle of the ring… and tie up again! A test of strength and technique again….which….. HBB gains advantage by swinging behind Starr holding in the waistlock….but Starr swings himself around and presses his weight with a crossbody, and HBB rolls back so he’s pinning Starr! 1!!!…………..2!!!.. No! An immediate kickout after 2 as HBB gets up… and HBB is near the turnbuckle as Starr runs for the Turnbuckle clothesline???? NO! HBB Back Body’s Starr to the outside of the ring… but Stan lands on the apron as HBB runs towards Starr, but meets a Shoulder into the midsection, and Starr steps into the ring and is GOING FOR THE OLYMPIC SLAM!!! But HBB with his right hand throws hammershots into Starr’s Face!
Stew-O: And from behind HBB runs into Starr’s spine.. as Starr RUNS FACE FIRST INTO THE TURNBUCKLE, and is knocked down! Starr is getting back up and HBB runs towards Starr… and Starr swings an arm for the clothesline, but HBB baseball slides under Starr’s arm to the outside and has hold of BOTH of Starr’s legs!!! And HBB tugs them as Starr falls flat on his face, and HBB happens to have Starr’s legs infront of the ringpost!!! Starr is in huge trouble!! Bigger trouble than he realizes… as HBB PULLS STARR WITH ALL OF HIS MIGHT, AND STARR PLUMMETS GROIN FIRST INTO THE RINGPOST!!! As Starr ERUPTS in screams and outbursts of pain!!
