(The New Breed Title Logo flashes across the screen.)
(Frontier Psychiatrist – The Avalanches hits as the crowd begins to cheer heavily. After a few moments, Clark Duncan emerges onto the stage looking very serious. He then quickly walks down the ramp and into the ring as he turns to face the ramp once again.)
RA: The following contest is for THE NEW BREED CHAMPIONSHIP! Introducing first, the challenger, from Chicago, Illinois, weighing 233 pounds…. CLARRRKKKKKK DUNNNNCANNNN!
Stew: Clark failed to win the number 1 contenders match at Reasonable Doubt to be in this match, but his relentlessness earned him the opportunity.
(Supermassive Black Hole by Muse begins to play. After a few moments Starkman can be seen zip lining to the ring. The crowd cheers heavily as he goes over their heads and lands in the ring where he poses. He begins to stare down Clark Duncan before turning his attention to the stage.)
RA: And his opponent, from Manhattan, New York, weighing 230 pounds…. STARRKKKMANNNN!
Ryder: Here’s the superhero himself, the alter ego or so of Stark. Can Starkman persevere?
(In Flames – With Eyes Wide Open hits as the crowd erupts into cheers. Jamie O’Hara comes out onto the stage with the New Breed Title Belt over his shoulder. He looks around the arena with a grin on his face. He then goes down the ramp and into the ring where he holds up the New Breed Title in the air.)
RA: Now introducing, from Sydney, Australia, weighing 215 pounds…. HE IS THE NEW BREED CHAMPION!…. JAMMIIIIIEEEE OOOOO’HARRRAAAAA!
Mercer: Jamie has been at the top of the New Breed Division for a long time now, but these two men are seeking to dethrone him.
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Stew: All three men get in different corners of the ring…. AND CLARK AND STARKMAN CHARGE DIRECTLY AT ONE ANOTHER AND BEGIN TO UNLOAD ON EACH OTHER! STARK WITH A RIGHT! DUNCAN WITH A LEFT! These two men are clobbering each other right out of the gate as they have been at each others throats for months now. Starkman now gets the upper hand with a strong uppercut. He now Irish whips Duncan off of the ropes… AND DUNCAN RUNS STRAIGHT INTO STARKMAN’S DROPKICK! Starkman now lifts Duncan back to his feet and he pulls him in! Starkman now goes for a float over DDT! Clark Duncan now struggles to prevent him from doing it! Starkman knees Clark in the side of the ribs but Duncan responds with several punches to the midsection and Starkman releases his hold! Now Duncan delivers a headbutt right to the skull of Starkman! Clark now steps back… AND HE CHARGES AND CONNECTS WITH A FRANKENSTEINER ONTO STARKMAN!
Ryder: The emotion of these two men is boiling over, and it’s making things go better for Jamie than he could have hoped. He has simply watched this whole thing and he’s still continuing to do so! Starkman now gets back up to his feet! DUNCAN NOW CHARGES AND CONNECTS WITH A CLOTHESLINE THAT SENDS STARKMAN TO THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING! Clark now steps onto the ring apron and he jumps and attempts a Double Axe Handle on Starkman… AND STARKMAN COUNTERS WITH A SWIFT KICK TO THE MIDSECTION! Starkman now grabs Clark… AND HE SUPLEXES HIM RIGHT ONTO THE ANNOUNCE TABLE!
Mercer: Starkman now pulls Clark off and he continues the assault! He delivers a knee to the midsection and he now steps back… HE GOES FOR A ROUNDHOUSE KICK! BUT CLARK DUCKS! STARKMAN SPINS AROUND TRYING TO REGAIN HIMSELF AND DUNCAN PULLS HIM IN AND CONNECTS WITH A NORTHERN LIGHTS SUPLEX! Clark now stomps the chest of the grounded Starkman several times! Clark now lifts Starkman back up to his feet as he prepares for his next move-… WAIT! LOOK ON THE TOP ROPE! IT’S JAMIE! HE LEAPS AND CONNECTS WITH A MOONSAULT ON BOTH STARKMAN AND DUNCAN ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING! ALL THREE MEN ARE DOWN!
Stew: Jamie O’Hara got fed up with waiting! He enjoyed it for a while but I guess boredom took over! Jamie waste no time getting back up to his feet! Jamie lifts up Clark as Starkman gets up on his own behind him… AND JAMIE EXECUTES A DROPKICK TO THE JAW OF DUNCAN THAT SENDS HIM STRAIGHT INTO STARKMAN! CLARK STUMBLES BACK TOWARDS JAMIE! JAMIE SETS UP DUNCAN…. AND CONNECTS WITH A DRAGON SUPLEX! DUNCAN IS DOWN! NOW STARKMAN GETS BACK TO HIS FEET AND CHARGES AT THE OCCUPIED JAMIE… AND JAMIE SPINS AROUND AND COUNTERS WITH THE DOWN UNDER! THE DOWN UNDER CONNECTS! WITH A SPINEBUSTER!
Ryder: Jamie rolls Clark Duncan into the ring and he now goes back to work on Starkman as he drags him towards the steel steps. He drags the steps out a little and places them in front of Starkman! He lifts up Starkman! AND JAMIE CONNECTS WITH ANOTHER DOWN UNDER! MY GOD! A SECOND DOWN UNDER TO STARKMAN! THIS TIME ON THE STEEL STEPS! Jamie now gets back into the ring and leaves Starkman on those steps where the agony he is in is obvious. Clark is just not getting back to one knee and now back to his feet…. AND JAMIE CONNECTS WITH A DISCUS ELBOW SMASH! CLARK IS DOWN AND OUT AND JAMIE GOES TO THE TOP ROPE ONCE MORE! HE LEAPS AND CONNECTS WITH THE FAR KEW! A MAGNIFICENT DIVING ELBOW DROP CONNECTS TO THE HEART OF DUNCAN! JAMIE NOW COVERS HIM!
Mercer: Clark manages to kick out and O’Hara is now forced to plan his next course of action. Jamie now climbs to the top rope once more. He’s perched… AND HE LEAPS… THE SERENADE OF ECTASY! THE FROG SPLASH CONNECTS! NO! CLARK MANAGES TO GET BOTH KNEES UP AND JAMIE INSTANTLY GOES INTO A STATE OF AGONY! Clark now has a moment to regain himself as he has been under fire since the opening gate. He checks on Starkman who still is laid out on the steel steps. Duncan now goes to the top rope where he waits for O’Hara to return to his feet. Jamie does just that he he continues to hold his midsection… MISSLE DROP KICK! CLARK CONNECTS WITH A MISSLE DROPKICK TO O’HARA! JAMIE STUMBLES BACK TO HIS FEET AND CLARK QUICKLY PULLS HIM IN AND CONNECTS WITH A CRADLE DDT! CLARK NOW GOES FOR THE COVER!
Stew: Jamie isn’t done yet! Clark now lifts Jamie up and he throws him into a nearby turnbuckle! Clark charges and connects with a corner clothesline! He steps back and goes for another one… AND JAMIE’S HIS FOOT UP AND CLARK CHARGES DIRECTLY INTO IT! JAMIE NOW TURNS AROUND AND PULLS HIMSELF UP TO THE TOP ROPE! HE JUMPS TOWARDS DUNCAN AND CONNECTS WITH A TOP ROPE HURRICANRANA! THAT MOVE HAD SO MUCH FORCE IS THREW DUNCAN COMPLETELY OUT OF THE RING! Jamie gets back to his feet and turns around… THE WINTERS BITE! THE TOP ROPE KNEE TO SKULL CONNECTS ON JAMIE O’HARA AS STARKMAN SEEMINGLY CAME OUT OF NOWHERE! MY GOD WE ARE GOING TO HAVE A NEW BREED CHAMPION AS STARKMAN COVERS!
ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEE TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO THREEEEE!
Mercer: THAT’S IT… NO! JAMIE KICKS OUT AT THE LAST POSSIBLE SECOND AND STARKMAN IS LOST FOR WORDS! STARKMAN SLOWLY RETURNS TO HIS FEET AND THERE’S DUNCAN! HE GOES FOR A CLOTHESLINE ON STARKMAN BUT HE DUCKS! STARKMAN NOW STEPS BACK AND GOES FOR THE STARK PUNCH!… BUT CLARK DODGES THAT! A SUPERKICK! CLARK DUNCAN HITS A SUPERKICK TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD OF STARKMAN! AND HE’S GOT HIM!… THE LAST LAUGH! DUNCAN CONNECTS WITH THE LAST LAUGH AND HE COVERS!
ONEEEEEEEEEEEEE TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO THR
Ryder: IS THAT IT! NO! JAMIE LEAPS AND BREAKS UP THE COVER JUST IN TIME! IF JAMIE HAD WAITED A FRACTION OF A SECOND LONGER, CLARK WOULD BE THE NEW BREED CHAMPION! All three men are now down. All three men slowly get back to their feet and Jamie and Starkman stumble towards one another… AND DUNCAN EXPLODES AND CONNECTS WITH A DOUBLE CLOTHESLINE! Jamie and Starkman are down again and Clark focuses on Jamie! He grabs his legs… AND HE LOCKS IN THE COMIC RELIEF! CLARK HAS LOCKED IN THE REVERSE BOSTON CRAB AND JAMIE’S AGONY IS EVIDENT! STARKMAN IS STILL DOWN AND JAMIE IS UNABLE TO PULL HIMSELF TO THE ROPES DESPITE HIM USING ALL OF HIS ENERGY TO DO SO!
Stew: I don’t know how much longer Jamie can endure this. CLARK NOW MUSTERS ALL OF HIS STRENGTH AS HE APPLIES THE HOLD EVEN HARDER AS HE’S READY TO BECOME THE NEW BREED CHAMPION! BUT JAMIE IS REFUSING TO TAP OUT! STARKMAN IS SLOWLY GETTING BACK TO HIS FEET! AND HE REALIZES WHAT’S GOING ON! CLARK YELLS FOR JAMIE TO TAP AS STARKMAN RUNS OFF THE ROPES AND GOES FOR A BIG BOOT ON DUNCAN! AND CLARK RELEASES THE HOLD AND DIVES ONTO THE MAT TO DODGE IT! HE SPINS AROUND AND STARKMAN CONNECTS WITH THE STARK PUNCH! THE SUPERMAN PUNCH LAYS OUT CLARK DUNCAN!
Ryder: Clark is down and Starkman turns his attention to Jamie who is back to his feet. STARKMAN GOES FOR THE STARK PUNCH ON O’HARA! JAMIE DIVES OUT OF THE WAY! STARKMAN SPINS AROUND AND JAMIE CONNECTS WITH A TILT-WHIRL BACKBREAKER! HE HOLDS STARKMAN ON HIS KNEE AND NOW LIFTS HIM BACK UP AND THROWS HIM AGAINST A NEARBY TURNBUCKLE! HE CHARGES TOWARDS THE CORNER AND CONNECTS WITH A RUNNING DROPKICK! STARKMAN FALLS AND JAMIE GOES FOR THE COVER ONCE MORE!
ONEEEEE! TWOOOOOOOOOOOO! THR-
Mercer: STARKMAN KICKS OUT AGAIN! JAMIE IS EXHAUSTED BUT HE CONTINUES ON ANYWAYS! Jamie now gets to his feet as he continues to eye Starkman… AND CLARK CONNECTS WITH A BACKSTABBER FROM BEHIND JAMIE! CLARK NOW PULLS JAMIE IN AND ATTEMPTS THE JUST FOR LAUGHS! HE GOES FOR IT AND IT CONNECTS… NO! JAMIE LANDS ON THE TURNBUCKLE AND DUNCAN HAS NO IDEA AS HE THOUGHT HE HAD HIT IT! CLARK TURNS BACK AROUND AND JAMIE CONNECTS WITH A TOP ROPE MOONSAULT ON CLARK DUNCAN!
Stew: Jamie is on his last legs and Starkman is back up! THE SCARLET DAWN! JAMIE GOES FOR THE SUPERKICK! BUT STARK SIDESTEPS IT AND HITS A SNAP CLOTHESLINE ON JAMIE! JAME RETURNS TO HIS FEET AND STARKMAN NOW GOES FOR THE RAINMAKER LARIAT! JAMIE DUCKS AT THE LAST SECOND AND GETS A HOLD OF STARK FROM BEHIND…ECHOES OF GLORY! JAMIE GOES FOR THE ECHOES OF GLORY BUT STARK GRABS THE NEARBY ROPES TO PREVENT JAMIE FROM DOING IT! JAMIE RELEASES HIS HOLD ON STARK AND GOES FOR THE SCARLET DAWN AGAIN!
Ryder: YOU HAVE TO BE KIDDING ME! STARKMAN DODGES IT ONCE MORE AS HE DROPS DOWN TO THE MAT TO CAUSE JAMIE TO MISS! HE NOW QUICKLY PULLS HIM IN… AND HE LIFTS HIM UP AND CONNECTS WITH THE BRAIN BUSTER AS HE DROPS JAMIE ON THE TOP TURNBUCKLE! THAT WAS DONE SO QUICKLY THAT JAMIE NEVER HAD A CHANCE TO ESCAPE!

ONEEEEE TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
Stew: HE DID IT!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
(Supermassive Black Hole by Muse hits as the crowd erupts into cheers as Starkman stumbles to his feet as the referee hands him the New Breed Title Belt. Starkman holds up the New Breed Title as the crowd continues to cheer. Starkman these does several poses with the belt before he exits the ring as he continues to celebrate.)
RA: Here is your winner… AND THE NEWWWW… NEW BREED CHAMPION…. STARKKKKMMMANNN!
Stew: Jamie O’Hara has been dethroned as his amazing reign has come to an end. And what a mighty reign it proved to be, but ALL good things MUST come to an end, and Starkman happens to be the beneficiary of such a law of men! That was about as enticing and entertaining of a start of the night that we could possible ask for!
Mercer: Clark and Jamie were fantastic in this match but Starkman never gave up and persevered in the end. After months at winning his contendership at Reasonable Doubt in a 6-man scramble match, he has finally cashed in on the opportunity after two months of ups and downs. Coming in, he perhaps had the least amount of momentum – winning only once. But he just showed here tonight, that the rest doesn’t matter.
Ryder: A heart breaker for both Clark Duncan and Jamie O’Hara, that’s for sure. Both men came close to capturing the victory in various moments… leading to what many would consider a classic in the history of the New Breed Championship. What a spectacular match and Starkman does what few people thought he would do, he has beaten Jamie O’Hara and Clark Duncan here at the Grand Rampage. Congratulations to him!

(The camera pans to the backstage area as Max A. Million is standing beside the Grand Rampage Tumbler as he smiles towards the camera.)
Max A. Million: We are live from Dortmund, Germany for Grand Rampage and the show has already kicked off with an amazing triple threat contest! Right now, I am standing beside the Grand Rampage Tumbler where elitists can go in and pull out their numbers going into the match! Tonight’s first elitist to take on the lottery of the tumbler… TIBERIUS JONES!
(Tiberius Jones and Joseph Anubis walk to the camera’s view as Tiberius fashions the National Elite Championship on his shoulder as he has a confident smirk on his face.)
Max: Tiberius, are you ready to receive your number and see what fate has in store for you tonight?
Tiberius Jones: Trust me, I already know what fate has in store for me, but sure. I’m ready to see what number I pull. I got to get my Vegas Luck going!
Max: Well, let’s spin the tumbler!
(Max spins the tumbler around a few times before stopping and opening the hatch for Tiberius to go in and take a number. He takes the number and looks at it.)
Tiberius: Could’ve been worse, but nevertheless, hopefully this will be pleasing.
Max: Say what?
Tiberius: Don’t worry about it. Just know that this will be a great Grand Rampage Match tonight. In fact, this will e the greatest Grand Rampage match of all time.
(Tiberius and Anubis walk out of the ring as Max is somewhat confused by the statement and the camera focuses back to the arena.)
( A highlight package ensues dating back to prior to Reckless Wiring, when Norman Hellion forced Lannister to choose between Psycho Brody and Norman himself, leading to an assault by Norman Hellion on the King of Elite. The highlight package transitions to Reckless Wiring, when Lannister cost Norman Hellion the Answers World Championship in retaliation. )
( The arena goes silent, as the camera pans to the center of the ring. )
RA: THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS A TRIAL BY COMBAT MATCH!
( A roar is heard from the crowd, as the lighting in the arena fades. )
RA: Now in this match, each participant will have one person in their corner. The only way this match ends, is when the participants manager calls for the match to end. There are no pinfalls. No submissions. Only surrender!
( The camera pans onto the ground floor of the entrance ramp, as a beckoning roar is heard from the surround system in the arena. )
( “The Regulator” by The Clutch plays as the crowd gets on their feet just to let the boo-birds rain down. The lighting in the arena blackens as The Agents of Extreme file out one by one, before making a line of succession, facing towards back the curtain. Norman Hellion is the first one to make his deafening appearance, as he is followed by Kendra Shamez and the King of Extreme Ares Vendetta. )
RA: And introducing first… from Parts Unknown, weighing in at 310 pounds… He is “THE BEHEMOTH”… representing HOUSE VENDETTA… And in the company of the King of Extreme Ares Vendetta and Queen Mother Kendra Shamez… NORMANNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN HELLLLLIONNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Mercer: “Dream with the feathers of angels stuffed beneath your head! The regulator’s swinging pendulum!” What a fitting theme song for The Angel of Debt’s fate tonight, here at the Grand Rampage. The Agents of Extreme! Ares Vendetta – THE KING OF EXTREME. THE QUEEN MOTHER. How MAD was it of this King Lannister to formulate such a type of match, where Norman Hellion had such a numbers advantage in his corner. The empire of RAGNAROK has been as strong as they come in recent memory – but this is House Vendetta we’re talking about. Norman Hellion definitely played his cards right, by pledging his allegiance to such a kingdom, and it will help him prevail here tonight.
Ryder: Not so fast! You are forgetting the fact that this man right here has been denounced as a traitor and enemy of the crown. Lannister has made a reputation by crossing out every name on his list, garnering him the “Angel of Debt” nickname – and tonight Lannister has Norman just right where he wants him. The foolish thing to do was to set your own funeral date, like Norman has – so the King of Elite can put you on display in his home kingdom.
Stew-O: As a general observer, I believe this match is as even as it can get. You have two powerful houses, two bitter rivals at each other’s throats. It’s anybody’s game. However, I will say – the X-Factor in this match will be the women representing each contestant. Lannister has his love interest in his corner, and Norman his King’s mother. I’m not a betting man, but if I was, I’d bet that Cerci would throw in the towel sooner than Kendra if things got way out of hand.
( Norman’s music fades, as the three turn their heads towards the entrance ramp, waiting for RAGNAROK’s representation to appear. Instead, a series of men dressed in red and gold armor pierce through the curtain with violins in hand as the tune of “The Rains of Castamere” begin to play. )
Ryder: A COAT OF GOLD! A COAT OF RED! A LION STILL HAS CLAWS.. AND MINE ARE LONG AND SHARP MY LORD. AS LONG AND SHARP AS…
( “Feuer Frei” echoes throughout the arena as the German crowd JUMPS to their feet, at the sight of their own Lannister, as he is accompanied to the ring by Cerci, and the two march down the ramp in hand and hand. )
RA: And introducing his opponent… weighing in at 252 pounds… REPRESENTING RAGNAROK… He IS the KING of ELITE… The ANGEL of DEBT… The STAR of the MOURNING… LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, DORTMUND’S VERY OWN… KINGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG LANNISTERRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Mercer: King of Elite, perhaps – but he is surely no king of Norman’s or the rest of House Vendetta. Norman Hellion had seen Lannister as a brother, and Lannister debunked Norman’s loyalty by choosing Psycho Brody over the then Answers World Champion. And Norman would STILL be reigning as Answers World Champion, if not for the pride of this pretender. Norman had already lost everything there is to lose… this match is all about retribution and redemption for Hellion – what does he have to lose? Lannister has an entire kingdom he can lose here tonight possibly.
Ryder: I should spit all over your shoes for that. What a disgrace of an argument. A loser’s mentality no doubt – Norman has no one to blame but himself. RAGNAROK was and IS the best empire to grace the Kingdom of Elite, and Norman chose not to be apart of it. It is Lannister in fact seeking retribution here tonight – and you’re wrong. Norman has so much more to lose here tonight – his relevancy, his pride, his stature. All of which Lannister helped pave the way for, how poetic will it be here tonight if the hometown Lannister takes it all away from him, in his own kingdom.
Stew: You two can bicker all night and day on who is in the right, but it is the laws of this match that decide who is truly in the wrong. One way or the other, we’re going to find out. Norman and Lannister will put each other through hell, that much I’m confident of. Past that, I’m not so sure. So many wild cards in this match, mainly Cerci and Kendra. Cerci has stated she has a secret, that she wishes to entail sooner or later… and Kendra has given herself the reputation as the most cunning and deliberate Vixen of all-time. These two are bound to impose their will in this match-up, and ultimately whoever wins this match comes down to one of their surrenders. But it looks as if this match is bound to get underway! Norman and Lannister staring one another down…
( DING! DING! DING! )
Mercer: And the referee calls for the bell, HERE WE GO! TRIAL BY COMBAT! MAY THE GODS DECIDE YOUR FATE! Norman and Lannister circle one another to start this match, as the hatred is evident, and the destruction imminent, but neither seems to be willing to make a move. This is far more personal than any of us could possibly describe, as the two exchange words! Whatever it was, I don’t feel as if any love was lost! And now Kendra and Cerci are getting into a war of words… much bark so far, but no BITE!
Ryder: HOLD THAT THOUGHT, JAKE – AS LANNISTER AND NORMAN EXPLODE OUT OF THEIR CORNERS AND HERE WE GO! AN ONSLAUGHT OF PUNCHES ENSUE. LANNISTER’S LEFT HOOKS MATCH NORMAN HELLION’S RIGHT JABS. NEITHER MAN SEEMS TO BE LETTING UP! They take each other to the ropes, as Lannister pins Norman against the turnbuckle! But Norman Hellion fires back with an immediate headbutt, and now he throws Lannister into the turnbuckle, pinning him against it! Norman Hellion throws a right chop into the chest of Lannister, and that could echo all the way to Munich, I feel!
Stew-O: Lannister storms out of the corner in pain, only to be planted by a running bulldog by the large man they call Norman! Norman leaves off a smirk, looking down upon a planted Lannister – as he clenches him back to his feet, bear clawing his hands around the skull of Lannister! Lannister is agonizing in pain, as Norman begins to shake violently! I haven’t seen ANYONE, and I mean ANYONE, just throw Lannister around like a ragged doll like this! This could be over right here, as Cerci looks on intently, with Lannister’s skull being swarmed by the mammoth hands of Norman Hellion! Kendra pestering Cerci, telling her to throw in the towel for her lion cub… but it looks as if Lannister himself is having none of that! Lannister sends a series of swift kicks into the sternum of Norman Hellion – as Hellion lightens the grasp on Lannister! Lannister kneels to one knee, throwing Norman overhead and straight to the canvas! The strength of the German is on full display!
Ryder: Both men slowly get to their feet, a moment for admiration is shared – only for King Lannister to seize control of Norman by wrapping his hands around his waist, GERMAN SU — NO! Norman Hellion bashes his elbow in Lannister’s skull, staggering Lannister away! Now Norman Hellion seizes control – as he grips Lannister, BELLY TO BACK SUPLEX! NO! Lannister holds onto the ropes, and now a taste of his own medicine going Norman’s way, as Lannister throws a series of elbows to the face of Norman… Lannister turns around – MAH GAWD! RUNNING KNEE SMASH FROM THE PRIDE OF DORTMUND! NORMAN DIDN’T SEE THAT ONE COMING – AS HE IS PLANTED TO THE CANVAS! THE crowd gives their approval, as Lannister has the momentary upper-hand. He’s toying with Norman now, smacking him in the back and head and all, sending cheap shots his way while Norman crawls on all fours to get back to his feet.
Stew-O: BUT BAH GAWD – THE PRIDE OF THIS LION GOT HIMSELF IN TROUBLE! As Norman counters, firing back with an inverted cutter from the canvas! Lannister drops to the mat, as Norman hooks his arms – GATOR ROLLing him around like nothing. As Norman keeps the hold locked in, but sending vicious knee strikes to the body of Lannister, as Lannister has nowhere to go whatsoever! Mah gawd, the STRENGTH OF THIS MAN, the BRUTE STRENGTH. Norman keeps the hold locked, as he powers HIMSELF and Lannister to their feet! Norman twists Lannister around, and locks his head in now! The sleeper hold! Lannister has nowhere to go in the middle of the ring as HE IS GETTING CHOKED OUT! Lannister waving his arms around the ring gasping for air, but Norman Hellion is giving him none whatsoever! Bah gawd, Norman has the King of Elite just where he wants him, taking away life by the second… Cerci is pleading, but the only thing she can do is throw in the towel and surrender on behalf of RAGNAROK! She’s looking reluctant to do so though, but she may have no other choice! Lannister isn’t escaping that hold, NO ONE CAN! Lannister seems to be fading here, early on! The referee might have to take it upon himself to call this match!
Mercer: The reign of King Lannister looks to be in quite a jeopardy now… BUT WAIT, NORMAN TURNS LANNISTER AROUND, LETTING GO OF THE HOLD – PUSHING HIM BACK… BAH GAWD! DISCUS CLOTHESLINE!!! IF LANNISTER’S HEAD WAS LOOSE, IT WOULD HAVE COME RIGHT OFF WITH THAT IMPACT! BAH GAWD. LANNISTER IS LIFELESS, NORMAN IN CONTROL – CERCI MIGHT HAVE NO CHOICE, AS SHE CLENCHES THE TOWEL IN HER HANDS. THIS HAS BEEN A BEATING SHOWCASING BY HOUSE VENDETTA’S NORMAN HELLION SO FAR. But Norman doesn’t look intent on letting Lannister rest up on the canvas, as he grabs Lannister’s arm and drags him to the turnbuckle?! What in the world is Norman planning to do here? Whatever it is, it can’t be good! Norman sets Lannister up right, and NORMAN RUSHES ACROSS THE RING, BOUNCES OFF THE ROPES – BAH GAWD! RUNNING BIG BOOT AS LANNISTER’S HEAD WHIPLASHES AGAINST THE TURNBUCKLE PADDING. CONCUSSION CITY, MUCH?
Ryder: Don’t get too confident there, Mercer! Cerci doesn’t look intent on calling this match now, Lannister has gone through much worse before… but I’ll admit he needs to start getting his own offense in because Norman HELLION is as relentless as they come. When he gets going, there’s no stopping that freight train. But it looks exactly as if that’s what’s happening – as Norman is PLEADING… BEGGING… DEMANDING for Lannister to get up on his feet. He’s calling for the Fractured Intent! Norman letting OUT all his arsenal already – NOT HOLDING ANYTHING BACK. BUT WAIT, WAIT… CERCI! SHE’S FOOLISH ENOUGH TO GET IN THE RING WITH THE CROWN OF ELITE, AS NORMAN TAKES NOTICE! BAD MOVE! SO MUCH FOR A SNEAK ATTACK! And Norman clenches her! No, no no – NOT THE QUEEN OF ELITE!
Stew-O: Wait, hold on! Norman’s corner is calling for him to calm down! What in the… ? Kendra is actually ASKING for Norman not to hit Cerci, what a peculiar situation this is proving to be! WAIT, now I understand! If Cerci isn’t conscious, there is no possible way for Lannister to surrender! Norman reluctantly lets go of Cerci – BUT HOLD ON! LANNISTER BACK TO HIS FEET! NORMAN THINKS FAST – PUSHES CERCI OUT OF THE WAY, AND BAH GAWD!!! HE TACKLES LANNISTER, SENDING LANNISTER THROUGH THE ROPES AND THROUGH THE OUTSIDE! CERCI MAY HAVE BOUGHT LANNISTER TIME, BUT NOT ENOUGH IT SEEMS!
Mercer: Lannister crashes to the concrete floor, as he tries to gather himself from the fall. Kendra and Ares separate themselves from the scene – as LOOK. NORMAN IS ON THE MOVE! HE BOUNCES OFF THE ROPES – DIVING CROSS BODY THROUGH THE OUTSIDE ON LANNISTER —
Ryder: BAH GAWD, NO! NO! YES! FEUER FREI! FEUER FREI WITH ELEVATION! BAH GAWD, NORMAN HELLION CRASHES AND BURNS LIKE A PLANE LOSING A WING. BAH GAWD – LANNISTER PULLS THAT OUT OF NOWHERE. NORMAN IS OUT COLD. Lannister gets to his feet – pledging to Kendra to throw in the towel now or else Norman is going to be the victim of much worse! Kendra scoffs him off – and Lannister responds by searching under the ring! Bah gawd, the King of Elite going Extreme! All allowed within the realms of this match. Lannister looks to have found something! A STEEL CHAIR! AND HE DOESN’T WASTE ANY TIME SWINGING IT, AS HE CRUMBLES NORMAN’S HEAD WITH IT IN AN ONSLAUGHT OF SWINGS! BAH GAWD, LANNISTER GIVING NORMAN ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING! ALL TO THE SKULL! NORMAN’S HEAD IS CAUGHT BETWEEN CONCRETE AND STEEL! AND ALL KENDRA CAN DO IS WATCH ON – AS CERCI KEEPS AN EYE OUT FOR ANY MOVEMENT.
Stew-O: THIS MATCH TOOK A TURN FOR THE WORST FOR HOUSE VENDETTA AS LANNISTER LOOKS TO BE IN ULTIMATE CONTROL. AND HE’S NOT GIVING UP, A 5TH SWING! THE CHAIR IS BENT TO HELL SO LANNISTER THROWS IT TO SIDE, BUT JUST LOOK AT THAT THING! NORMAN ISN’T MOVING STILL – AND NOW KENDRA IS NOW AT LEAST GOING TO HAVE TO CONTEMPLATE ENDING THIS MATCH FOR HER CHAMPION. The answer is a resounding NO though, so Lannister goes back to work! He picks Norman Hellion’s lifeless body up off the floor – and throws him right into the barricade head first! But Lannister walks past the body of Norman Hellion – storming past the House Vendetta corner… and right to the GERMAN ANNOUNCE TABLE! BAH GAWD, HE’S TAKING OFF THE COVERING. He throws one monitor to the ground… holding onto the other… AND TAKES IT RIGHT TO NORMAN. BAH GAWD, HOW MUCH CAN NORMAN TAKE – AS LANNISTER HITS HIM BETWEEN THE EYES WITH THAT PIECE OF EQUIPMENT! AND NORMAN IS OPENED UP – AS BLOOD POURS FROM HIS NOSE. I’M SURPRISED THAT’S THE ONLY ASPECT HE’S BLEEDING FROM.
Mercer: Wait – wait what the HELL are you DOING?! LANNISTER IS TAKING OFF OUR COVER NOW. WHAT GIVES?! GO DO DAMAGE TO THAT FOREIGN COMMENTATING TABLE LIKE YOU HAD ORIGINALLY PLANNED. THERE GO THE MONITORS – WHAT IN THE HELL IS LANNISTER DOING? TWO ANNOUNCE TABLES WITHOUT COVERING AND MONITORS… Lannister drags Norman’s lifeless body in front of us, lays him ATOP OUR TABLE! WE’RE GETTING TOO CLOSE OF A LOOK ON THIS MATCH, FOR MY EYES.
Ryder: You have the heart of a woman, Jake! MAH GAWD – Lannister climbs on top the table too, something MAJOR is BREWING here… AS LANNISTER LIFTS UP… HE WARNS KENDRA TO SURRENDER NOW, OR ELSE. BUT SHE JUST SHAKES HER HEAD NO — BAD MOVE! BAH GAWDDDDD!!! BROKEN CROWN! BROKEN CROWN FROM OUR TABLE TO THE NEXT AS NORMAN HELLION GOES CRASHING THROUGH THE GERMAN ANNOUNCE TABLE, AFTER BEING THROWN FROM OURS! HOLY HELL – WHAT AN IMPACT! NORMAN HELLION IS NOT MOVING – I REPEAT NORMAN HELLION IS NOT MOVING! THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU GET INTO THE DEPTHS OF THE LION’S DEN AND ANGER THIS KING OF THE JUNGLE.
Stew-O: Lannister had warned Kendra before – and now SHE MUST listen to his pleas. Norman is already bloodshed, he has been whiplashed with a steel chair, and now has been mingled into an obstacle course of table debris. Lannister by no means is going to let up… and Norman is at the mercy of Lannister for as long as Kendra allows for it. Ares Vendetta and Kendra huddle up – a movement of discussion! Kendra emerges from it – with Lannister anticipating an answer!
Kendra: On wrongs… SWIFT VENGEANCE WAITS.
Mercer: I’ll take that as a no! Norman Hellion does NOT surrender to the wrath of Lannister. But even I’m not so sure that’s the smart thing to do at this point – as Lannister seems to be up to something! What in the hell is he doing?! BAH GAWD, A TABLE IS PULLED OUT FROM UNDER THE RING! BUT THAT’S NOT ALL – A SERIES OF BARBED WIRE AS WELL, AS HE THROWS BOTH INTO THE RING! HE SETS THE BARBED WIRE ATOP THE TABLE… AS NORMAN HELLION STILL ISN’T MOVING OUT HERE. BUT IT MAKES NO MATTER TO LANNISTER – WHO DRAGS HIM TO THE RING. LANNISTER PULLS NORMAN UP FROM THE CANVAS – LOCKING EYES WITH HIM…
Lannister: KING LANNISTER SENDS YOU HIS REGARDS!
Ryder: AND LANNISTER LIFTS NORMAN UP ON HIS SHOULDERS… ANOTHER BROKEN CROWN!!! BAH GAWD — WAIT NO! NO – NORMAN HELLION IS FIGHTING IT, AS HE GRABS ONTO THE ROPES AS LEVERAGE! HE’S NOT LETTING GO – AND I CAN SEE WHY – A SERIES OF BARBED WIRE IS WAITING FOR HIM ELSEWISE! AND WHAT THE HELL – KENDRA SWIPED LANNISTER’S FEET RIGHT FROM UNDER HIM! AS NORMAN AND LANNISTER CRASH TO THE CANVAS! WHAT TREACHERY!
Stew: You didn’t seem too keen on complaining when it was Cerci helping Lannister out of trouble! Norman lands on top of Lannister, as both men seem content with staying on the canvas for now! Blood continues to drop from Norman’s face – all over the King of Elite now. Norman’s blood is literally on Lannister’s hands now – but makes no matter, as Norman is the first to stagger to his feet! Lannister follows suit – BUT IT’S TOO LATE! HE RUNS RIGHT INTO NORMAN HELLION’S GRASP — BAHHH GAWD!!!! THE LONESOME ROAD POP-UP POWERBOMB ONTO LANNISTER, AS HE CRASHES THROUGH THE BARBED WIRED TABLE! KENDRA’S MANEUVER PAYS OFF! AND NORMAN IS IN A COMPLETE RAGE — AS HE ISN’T CONTENT WITH THE DAMAGE DONE. HE PICKS APART THE BARBED WIRE WITH HIS BARE HANDS, RIPPING IT IN HALF, AS HE WRAPS IT AROUND HIS HAND, THROWING PUNCHES TO THE FACE OF LANNISTER!
Mercer: THAT BARBED WIRE IS RIPPING RIGHT INTO LANNISTER’S FACE – TAKING BITS OF SKINS WITH IT EVERY SINGLE ENCOUNTER. SOME SMALL STREAKS OF BLOOD BEGIN TO POUR FROM THE VACATED SKIN – AS LANNISTER IS CAUGHT IN NO MAN’S LAND! NORMAN HELLION PICKS UP THE CROWN OF ELITE THAT CERCI DROPPED BEFORE — MAH GAWD!!!
Norman Hellion: CROWN FOR KING!
Ryder: NOOOO! LANNISTER SMACKED BETWEEN THE EYES WITH HIS OWN CROWN! IF HE WASN’T BLEEDING BEFORE – HE IS NOW! MAYBE HAVE EVEN BENT IN THE CROWN WITH THAT SHOT! CERCI CAN’T TAKE IT… SHE… SHE GETS IN THE RING! BUT WAIT – ARES VENDETTA JUMPS IN TOO! BAH GAWD – HE WRAPS HIS ARMS AROUND HER! HE HAS HER HOSTAGE! SHE’S GOT NOWHERE TO GO – AS SHE’S STOPPED IN HER TRACKS!
Stew-O: Back to Norman and Lannister for a second! NORMAN WRAPS A STRING OF BARBED WIRE AROUND LANNISTER’S NECK! BAH GAWD – BOTH LANNISTER AND CERCI HAVE HOUSE VENDETTA ARMS WRAPPED AROUND THEM – BUT LANNISTER IS BEING CHOKED OUT WITH THAT BARBED WIRE AS IT CUTS INTO HIS NECK! LANNISTER IS SQUIRMING – CERCI CAN’T HELP – NORMAN IN COMPLETE CONTROL… HOUSE VENDETTA HAS LANNISTER AND HIS QUEEN CERCI RIGHT WHERE THEY WANT THEM! THIS ISN’T LOOKING GOOD – CERCI IS GOING TO HAVE NO CHOICE, I BELIEVE! Wait, hold on – Ares IS SPEAKING TO HER!
Ares: Don’t even think about it… at least not yet, Cerci. I want you to look into the eyes of your “King” as Norman suffocates the living life out of him. THEN, you have House Vendetta’s permission to surrender.
Mercer: A decree from the King of Extreme! Ares Vendetta not ALLOWING Cerci to surrender on Lannister’s behalf here… not yet, at least! Bah gawd, this is what happens when you serve as a roadblock to House Vendetta’s claim. Norman has stopped his choke hold on Lannister, as you can SEE the red marks all AROUND Lannister’s neck. LOOKS AS IF LANNISTER UPGRADED FROM A HANGING DEATH, TO A BEHEADING – BECAUSE LOOK AT THIS! KENDRA THROWS A CHAIN INTO THE RING! NORMAN knows EXACTLY what to do with this… BAH GAWD, AS HE WRAPS IT AROUND HIS ARM! WE HAVE A DISCUS CLOTHESLINE COMING… AND IT HAS LANNISTER’S NAME WRITTEN ALL OVER IT! HE’S PLEADING… BEGGING… DEMANDING LANNISTER TO GET UP! WE SAW THIS EARLIER IN THE NIGHT, BUT I GENUINELY BELIEVE THIS IS THE END OF LANNISTER HERE.
Ryder: NO, Stay down! Stay down, Lannister! I admire your pride, but NO – NOT THIS WAY! Cerci is still held hostage by Ares Vendetta, as all she can do is LOOK on. I think tears are even falling down her face – as there’s NOTHING she can do. There’s NOTHING ANYONE CAN DO. Lannister is staggering… slowly getting to his feet, as he uses the ropes as leverage. He grabs at his neck, as it’s obviously bothering him… but little does he know Norman Hellion is stalking hi every move! Calculating the run… LANNISTER GETS UP TO HIS FEET, I CAN’T WATCH! NORMAN CHARGES… DISCUS CLOTHESLINE!!!!! WITH THAT CHAIN WRAPPED AROUND HIS HAND!!!!
Stew-O: DISCUS CLOTHESLINE!!!!! BAH GAWD – WAIT NO! NO! LANNISTER DUCKS OUT OF THE WAY! AS DOES CERCI — AND MAH GAWD THE CARNAGE! NORMAN HELLION CAN’T BELIEVE HIMSELF – HE JUST HIT ARES VENDETTA WITH THAT CHAINED DISCUS CLOTHESLINE! ARES VENDETTA IS OUT – NORMAN HELLION IS SHELL SHOCKED! LANNISTER PICKS UP THAT CHAIN… TURNS NORMAN HELLION AROUND! PUSH-UP FEUER FREI!!!!!! MAH GAWD! WHAT A TURN OF EVENTS! NORMAN HELLION IS OUT COLD – ARES VENDETTA WAS A VICTIM OF THE WRONG PLACE AT THE WRONG TIME! AND LOOK NOW – CERCI IS THINKING ON HER FEET! SHE GRABS THAT CHAIN!
Mercer: NO! NO – DON’T DO THIS YOU FIEND! CERCI GRABS THE CHAIN THAT DROPPED FROM NORMAN’S GRASP – AS SHE ROPES IT BETWEEN THE 1ST AND 2ND ROPE, AND WRAPS IT AROUND ARES VENDETTA’S NECK! AND SHE PULLS FROM THE ARPON! THE LIFE IS BEING CHOKED OUT OF ARES VENDETTA! KENDRA CAN’T ACT FAST ENOUGH – AS SHE CHARGES TO GO HELP OUT HER KINGLY SON! BUT NO – NO, LANNISTER INTERCEPTS HER PATH! SHE CAN’T GET TO HER KING – AS HE CONTINUES TO GET CHOKED OUT BY THAT CHAIN!
Lannister: SURRENDER or ELSE “King” Ares meets his fall here in Dortmund.
Ryder: KENDRA HAS NO CHOICE AT ALL – AS THE LIFE IS SUFFOCATING OUT OF ARES VENDETTA! SHE THROWS IN THE TOWEL! SHE SURRENDERS ON NORMAN HELLION’S BEHALF! BAH GAWD! THIS IS OVER! KING LANNISTER REIGNS SUPREME!
( DING! DING! DING! )
RA: And winner of this match via surrender… KINGGGGGGGGGGGGGG LANNISTERRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!
Stew-O: WAIT – HOLD UP! LANNISTER GRABS A HOLD OF KENDRA AND THROWS HER INTO THE RING! OH NO – WHAT GIVES?! THE MATCH IS OVER BUT IT DOESN’T LOOK AS IF LANNISTER’S INTENTIONS ARE BY ANY MEANS. CERCI FINALLY STOPS CHOKING ARES, AS ARES JUST FLOPS TO THE CANVAS. CERCI ENTERS THE RING – THE ONLY PERSON IN THE RING RIGHT NOW IS NORMAN HELLION. THE HOUSE OF LANNISTER IS SHOWCASING THEIR DOMINANCE RIGHT NOW.
Mercer: Let the Queen Mother go! Let the King go! Your business was with Norman Hellion and no one more – the Trial by Combat has been WON already. You German trash!
Ryder: Shush – be quiet! Looks as if Cerci is asking for a microphone, as she is handed it by the ring announcer… the sound of “Feuer Frei” sounds out… as nothing but the deafening picture in front of us is the only sound that remains. But what exactly does Cerci mean to entail with that microphone?!
Cerci: Oh – House Vendetta… How your wrongs, have swiftly been avenged. I want everyone to look around – look at the picture in front of you now. Norman Hellion has been beheaded by the chains of the Elite Crown. House Vendetta’s Queen Mother sits on trial by the TRUE King, King Lannister… and why, the pretender himself, Ares Vendetta… lays before the crown, beaten and conquered. This is the sight of RAGNAROK, as it always had been… Your pride has gotten the better of you, Ares Vendetta.
Oh, what a cruel joke your gods have pulled on you. You have all this aid, all this power… yet when the moment strikes, they can’t even bear the opportunity to spare and save you. It would be quite foolish for your Agents of Extreme to involve themselves now, with the King holding your mother hostage…
You thought you could impose your will on House Lannister because of this ongoing blood feud… because you think your CLAIM on a Kingdom is superior? Why – look around, look inside – ONLY KING LANNISTER REIGNS. And it is now… TIME to hand out the King’s Justice. Lannister has been warning you – he told you and Norman specifically, that you’re running out of grand time. And now that bell tolls…
( The Crowd begins to chant: HEAD ON A STICK! HEAD ON A STICK! )
As enticing as that is… King Lannister is a just man – if he were to pass the sentence, he’d do it himself. You are being shown an ounce of mercy, Ares… This is the King’s royal decree.
( The crowd grows silent. )
Cerci: But well… the same can’t be said for your mother.
Ryder: BAH GAWD – LANNISTER TURNS KENDRA AROUND, LIFTS HER UP IN THE AIR! FEUER FREI!!!! FEUER FREI! THE QUEEN MOTHER HAS FALLEN VICTIM TO LANNISTER’S WRATH! BAH GAWD – SHE’S LIFELESS. MOTIONLESS. NOW WHAT IS LANNISTER DOING?! HE’S GOING OVER TO ARES VENDETTA – AS HE PULLS HIM UP FROM THE CANVAS!
Cerci: Oh Ares… Look. Look at what you’ve done. I SAID LOOK AT ME!
( Ares Vendetta opens his eyes, seeing Kendra laying on the canvas floor, as he turns his attention to Cerci. )
Cerci: Hopefully you don’t see this as a “wrong” to your house, because I guarantee you… it is hardly as such. Actually… she wronged me long ago. I told you all weeks before – I had a secret, and I intend to let it known right here, right now. For you see, Ares… this whore shamed House Vendetta long ago – when she bred you. You are a bastard… a bastard to Robbie Vendetta, the Mikado of Extreme. You may be Robbie’s eldest living son… but you are not his legitamate heir. You see this?
( Cerci picks up Ares’ King of Extreme crown. )
This doesn’t belong to you, by the laws of inheritance. Because there is only one trueborn heir to Robbie Vendetta… and it’s not you. Reading through your family history, it is quite apparent that Robbie’s only true born is a female…
Ares: …She’s gone.
Cerci: Ah yes… yes she is. You want to know why? LOOK AT ME.
( Cerci slaps Ares Vendetta – as he locks eyes with her. )
Cerci: THIS CROWN… IT BELONGS TO ME. FOR I AM ROBBIE VENDETTA’S ONLY TRUE BORN OFFSPRING…
Mercer: THIS CAN’T BE – THIS CAN’T BE! CERCI HAS NO CLAIM ON KINGDOM OF EXTREME!
Cerci: YOu thought I was lost all this time… when in all reality, I was in your company, hidden, disguised under the name of Cerci. Father sent me to House Lannister long ago… and now I am back… claiming what is MINE. AS ATHENA VENDETTA.
( Cerci puts the Crown of Extreme on top of her head. )
Ryder: MY GOD – THIS… THIS… I CAN’T EVEN PUT ALL THIS TOGETHER. MORTAL ENEMIES – HOUSE VENDETTA AND HOUSE LANNISTER… HAVE ACTUALLY BEEN LIVING UNDER THE SAME ROOF ALL THIS TIME? ..THIS, THIS IS ATHENA VENDETTA, THE HEIR TO ROBBIE VENDETTA – MY GOD SHE’S THE KEY TO EVERYTHING!
Cerci: So as the true heir to our father… this father is to be mine. This house is mine. And one month from now… HOuse Vendetta and House Lannister end their centuries of war… when the King of Elite MARRIES the Queen of Extreme. The end of two wars really, Elite vs Extreme, Lannister vs. Vendetta.
And brother, you’ve had it wrong all this time. For the new house words are… On wrongs, SWIFT VENGEANCE SENDS ITS REGARDS!
Stew-O: AND LANNISTER LIFTS ARES VENDETTA INTO THE AIR, BAH GAWD – FEUER FREI!!!! FEUER FREI TO ARES VENDETTA! AS LANNISTER SHOVES HIM OUT OF THE RING – MY GOODNESS WHAT A TURN OF EVENTS. WHAT NEWS… I CAN’T EVEN GATHER MY THOUGHTS.
( “Rains of Castamere” echoes throughout the arena as the crowd hums to its tune, as Lannister and Cerci, with their crowns on the top of their head, hold each other’s hands high up in the air in victory. )
Ryder: I guess we’re one month away from a royal wedding! My god – the head of House Vendetta and the head of House Lannister! I did not see that coming into tonight. Lannister has won his trial by combat over Norman Hellion here tonight… but it seems as if he won the heart of Athena Vendetta long ago!
( Screen fades. )
(( COMMERCIAL ))
(Intro to “Cant Kill Us” by The Glitch Mob hits as a high tech pyramid slowly emerges from a desert floor)
Narrator: The spectacle returns…
(The pyramid continues to rise)
Narrator: Become a part of history, and witness the Greatest Show on Earth… PAIN FOR PRIDE!
(The pyramid is fully risen. Screen flashes, and “Cant Kill Us” bass drops with flashes of the excitement and roar of the EAW Audience during amazing “Pain for Pride moments” over the years such as HRDO doing his signature flame taunt in the ring,
Jaywalker smashing a beer bottle over Johnny Bad Blood’s head,
Alexander Da Vinci making his entrance
Prince of Phenomenal hitting his finishing ive and celebrating with the Answers World Championship,
Heart Break Boy hitting the Goldprint on CM Banks,
Y2Impact hitting the codebreaker on Methuselah,
and Heart Break Gal raising her Vixens Championship.)
(Cut back to the Pain for Pride logo, as “Cant Kill Us” comes to an end and “61 days” flashes across the screen.)
( Logo for the EAW Tag Team Championships appears on the screen )
RA: This following contest is a TRIPLE THREAT TAG TEAM MATCH scheduled for one fall… and is for the EAW TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIPS!!!
“OHHH WOOOOAW OOOOHHH WE WON’T BREAK BUT WE MIGHT BEND”
“WOOOAAAHHH OOOOHHHH WE’LL SEE YOU AT THE BITTER END!”
( “Blackout” by Zebrahead hits as Ciserano and Caliban come out to the ring in matching trunks and attire, full of momentum and drive as they hype each other up )
RA: The challengers, first making his way to the ring weighing in at 185 pounds, he is the king of queen city, THIS IS JORDAN CISERANO!!!! … HIS PARTNER, weighing in at 195 pounds, Hailing from Coleraine Northern Ireland, being accompanied by Sinnesy Rose, He is the artful dodger of professional wrestling, THE NEW AGE LIBERTINE! CALIBAN!!!! THEY ARREEE DEEEATTHHHH.. BYYYYYYYYYYY VEEEELOOCITYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!
Mercer: There is SO MUCH energy surrounding these two firecrackers right now! This is the first EAW FPV appearance in their careers, and they arrive on the big state in a BIG BIG way being involved in not only a championship match, but a tag team championship match in some of the thickest competition this division’s had in a quite a long time! And these two kids, these young bucks Ciserano and Caliban want to come away with what would be a monumental upset!
( “I Get It” by Chevelle hits as Matt Miles and Aren Mstislav make their way out to the ring wearing red and gold attire, looking around at the massive stadium while making their entrance. )
RA: The next team, representing RAGNAROK and weighing at a combined weight of 444 POOOOOUNNNDSSS… MATT MILES AND AREN MSTISLAV… THEEE NEEEEEEEEEEWWW MONARCHYYYYYYYYY!!!!
Ryder: Now it’s clear the three teams in this match represent their brands, and since the three of us also represent each brand naturally there would be commentary bias and the three of us would ROOT for each team that most represents our brand. HOWEVER IT DOESN’T TAKE A BRAIN DEAD CHIMP TO REALIZE RAGNAROK HAS WHAT IT TAKES AND THEN SOME TO LEAVE CHAMPS TONIGHT! These boys are PRIMED! They’re ready to bring the win home for RAGNAROK and make it 1-1 and bringing back the tag team titles would do that in such a big way!
( “On Sight” by Kanye West hits as smoke arises on the stage. After the electrical whirring, Mr. DEDEDE runs out through the smoke full of energy while in his vintage trenchcoat with the EAW Tag Team title around his waist, and Ryan Savage walks through the smoke holding his title on his shoulder as both men make their entrance. )
RA: And their opponents! Weighing at a combined weight of 485 POOOUNNDSSSS…. THEY ARE THE REIGNING EAW TAG TEAM CHAMPIOOOONSSS… RYAN SAVAGE… MR. DEDEDE…. THE SAVAAAAAAAAAAAGGGEEEE RYYYAAAAAAAAAAAAAANNNSS!!!!
( DEDEDE stops at the middle of the rant to do his corna-pyro taunt while Ryan stands nearby raising the title as pyro blasts into the air )
Stew: Ryan Savage and Mr. DEDEDE have waited a long time for a day like this, where they could go into an FPV like this tag team champions getting to prove themselves as a team! It was a year ago where these two men became allies and since then we’ve seen their relationship grow as they’ve fought beside each other in numerous battles, and we’re talking about one of the fastest rising Elitists in history teaming with arguably the greatest Elitist in history!
( The music dies down as the referee decides, via coin-toss that the New Monarchy will be in the ring with the Savage Ryans while DBV stand at the third of the remaining 2 unoccupied corners. )
Mercer: This will be a trying match for all three of these men, which team will leave the Grand Rampage with the gold?!
( Ding! Ding! Ding! )
Stew: It’ll be Mr. DEDEDE in the ring with Aren Mstislav while Ryan stands at one corner, Matt Miles stands at another corner and Death By Velocity stand at the third. DEDEDE and Aren circle the ring… you can hear the trash talking coming from DEDEDE, Aren’s not having any of it, both of them lock up! Collar & elbow grapple to start the match and DEDEDE instantly catches a side headlock… Aren counters with the HAMMERLOCK, BUT A SIDE KICK TO THE GUT BY DEDEDE HITS THE MARK. DDD snatches the arm, backpedals to the ropes and bounces off taking Aren with him and DOWN AREN GOES WITH THE BATTERING RAM SHOULDER BLOCK. But it’s not long before Aren kips back up to his feet with DDD still ahold of his wrist and Mstislav hits the LEGSWEEP! DDD hops over it, they both recover, ROUNDHOUSE FROM DDD! Mstislav ducks and goes for the BACK SUPLEX RUNNING BACKWARDS AND HITTING IT IN THE CORNER!
Mercer: But it’s the Death By Velocity corner, and Jordan Ciserano tags himself in afterwards! Now both members of DBV hop over the ropes and gang up on Aren with punches! Now they double whip Aren to an idle ring corner and turn back to DDD… DOUBLE CLOTHESLINE BY MR. DEDEDE! NOW DDD RUNS TO THE CORNER, CORNER SENTON ON AREN!!!! BUT AREN JUMPS OUT OF THE WAY! DDD hits the corner hard, hung upside down taking a nasty crash there and the referee sends Aren Mstislav out of the ring as both members of Death By Velocity drag Mr. DEDEDE out of the corner and hit a DOUBLE BACK SUPLEX!!! Now in comes Ryan Savage, the referee’s trying to keep him out of the ring and in comes Miles and Mstislav hitting DOUBLE DROPKICKS ON BOTH MEMBERS OF DEATH BY VELOCITY.
Ryder: Nice one boys! Now there’s low dropkicks to the face by Mstislav and Miles for both Ciserano and Caliban and now they drag DEDEDE over to their corner… the ref notices and scolds RAGNAROK for it, but now DDD’s just trying to recover… but Matt Miles tags himself in on DDD, grabs the 3 time tag team champion and tosses him through the ropes out of the ring and goes after Jordan Cisarano, who’s the legal man. Miles hits the HALF NELSON BACKBREAKER on Ciserano and AREN MSTISLAV HITS A SPRINGBOARD DOUBLE FOOT STOMP ON THE ROBS OF CISERANO WHILE HE’S DRAPED ON MILES’ KNEE!!! Now Matt Miles drags Ciserano back up and hits the CALIFORNICATION, BACK SUPLEX FACEBUSTER COMBOED WITH THE CODEBREAKER FROM MSTISLAV!!! OHHH THAT WAS SICK!!!!
Mercer: Now look, Caliban drags Mstislav out of the ring and both men exchange punches! Both combatants at each other with right hands back and forth! Miles meanwhile has the leg hooked!
Ref: OOOOOONEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOO!!!!
Mercer: RYAN SAVAGE breaks the pin! Now Savage drags Matt Miles up to his feet and hits him with several MEAN shots with the uppercut. Miles comes back with an EYE RAKE! Savage turns away holding his face and there’s the KICK TO THE BACK OF THE KNEE BY MILES! Savage tries to rush back to his feet but Miles comes on strong with the right hands… now in comes DEDEDE WITH THE BIG BOOT!!! MATT MILES TAKEN DOWN! AND OUTSIDE THE RING, CALIBAN WHIPS AREN MSTISLAV FULL FORCE INTO THE STEEL STEPS! Caliban rushes into the ring now and BLITZES DEDEDE WITH THE FOREARM TAKING HIM DOWN! Now Caliban grabs Ryan Savage SPRINGS UP FOR THE FRANKENSTEINER…. BUT SAVAGE CATCHES HIM AND TOSSES HIM TO THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING WITH THE POWERBOMB AS CALIBAN LANDS ON AREN MSTISLAV, PILING UP BOTH MEN!!!!
Stew: The ref’s having a hard time controlling this thing, the referee’s trying to send DEDEDE out but DEDEDE grabs Matt Miles and is going for the german suplex… and RYAN SAVAGE GERMAN SUPLEXES MR. DEDEDE, PUTTING MORE VELOCITY AS THE SAVAGE RYANS HIT THE DOUBLE GERMAN SUPLEX!!! 450+ POUNDS GOING RIGHT ON MATT MILES! DDD’s a little rattled but now the ref’s had it, he kicks Ryan Savage out of the ring… CISERANO TURNS RYAN SAVAGE AROUND!!
Stew: CISERANO SUPERKICK ON RYAN SAVAGE!!! RYAN SENT THROUGH THE ROPES OUT OF THE RING!!!! Jordan Ciserano grabs Matt Miles and drapes him on the top ropes…. going for a TOP ROPE HUNG NECKBREAKER ON MATT MILES….. BUT HERE COMES DEDEDE WITH THE SPEAR!!!! SPEAR HITS CISERANO AS CISERANO DROPS MILES WITH THE NECKBREAKER!!!!
Ryder: THAT WAS SICK, BRO! Both legal men in the match roll out of the ring and they’re being helped up to their feet by the respective partners who are also recovering at ringside after that Ryan Savage powerbomb….. OH LOOK!!! DEDEDE’S FIRED UP! MR. DEDEDE RUNS THE ROPES AND CHARGES…. FLINGS HIMSELF OVER THE ROPES…. VINTAGE DEDEDE!!!! SOMERSAULT SENTON TO THE OUTSIDE TAKES JORDAN CISERANO AND MATT MILES, THE LEGAL MEN IN THIS MATCH ALL DOWN!!! AREN AND CALIBAN GET THE HELL OUT OF DODGE AT THE KNICK OF TIME! …. NOW LOOK, DEDEDE RUNS AT MSTISLAV FULL SPEED GOING FOR THE SPEAR!!!!! …. AREN COUNTERS, POPPING DEDEDE UP FOR THE FLAPJACK AND DEDEDE COMES DOWN INTO A MID AIR SUPERKICK BY CALIBAN!!! WOW!!!!!!
Mercer: ABSOLUTELY NUTS! THAT WAS ABSOLUTELY NUTS! DEDEDE’S BEEN KNOCKED THE HELL OUT!
Ref: 1!!!! …… 2!!!!
Mercer: Both Aren Mstislav and JP Caliban rush to their fallen partners to roll them back in the ring after having to take the brunt of that somersault senton…. now both Mstislav and Caliban rush back to the ring apron just waiting for their partners to recuperate… but ironically enough their partners drag themselves to the wrong corners, Matt Miles dragging himself to Caliban’s corner and Ciserano to Mstislav’s. But in a three way tag team match you’re allowed to tag in and out at any corner you please, even your opponents. Nonetheless both opponents blind tag themselves in, hop over the ropes and rush right over to each other to a series of hockey fight style right hands at a rapidfire pace! Now Mstislav hits European uppercuts in succession sending Caliban staggering back to the ropes… Aren backs away… and COMES AT HIM …. CONFORMITY OF THE MASSES!!! RUNNING SINGLE-LEGGED HIGH KNEE!!! CALIBAN EVASIVE ROLLS UNDERNEATH THE LEG! Caliban springs to the ring ropes perpendicular to the ones Aren bounces off of… and there’s the SPRINGBOARD SATELLITE DDT ON AREN MSTISLAV!!! NO AREN COUNTERS IT INTO A SPINNING GUTBUSTER!!! HOOK OF BOTH LEGS!
Ref: OOOOOOONEEE!!! TWOOOOOOO!!!
Stew: KICK OUT! WHAT HEART SHOWN FROM JP CALIBAN TO KICK OUT OF THAT! THAT HAD TO KNOCK THE WIND OUT OF HIM! Mstislav gets back to his feet and backs into a corner…. Aren stalks his opponent, waiting for Caliban to recover and get back up to a vertical base….. after a moment Caliban is up and is staggering, THIS MIGHT BE THE COUP DE GRACE FROM MSTISLAV! BUT OH, SAVAGE JUMPS UP TO THE APRON AND BLIND TAGS HIMSELF IN! Aren is FURIOUS about that, he comes at Savage with rapidfire European uppercuts but Savage DROPS OFF THE APRON WITH THE FACEPLANT TO THE ROPES. Mstislav is doubled over holding his face now…. and …. AND CALIBAN!!! CALIBAN RUNS OFF ARENS BACK SPRING UP TO THE TOP ROPE AND OFF TO RYAN SAVAGE…. OUTGOING!!!!!!!! MULTIPLE FLIP SHOOTING STAR PRESS!!!!!!!!!!!!
Ryder: RYAN SAVAGE DODGES!!!! RYAN DODGES!!! UNBELIEVABLE!!!!! THAT WAS AN UNBELIEVABLE MOVE, BUT HE GOT NOTHING! AND LOOK AT JORDAN CISERANO, HE’S CLIMBED UP TO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE LOOKING FOR PERHAPS A 450 SPLASH ON AN UNSUSPECTING RYAN SAVAGE — BUT MATT MILES GRABS CISERANO BY THE ANKLE ON THE APRON STOPPING HIM, AND HITS PUNCHES ON CISERANO! Now Matt Miles snatches Ciserano who’s been rocked by a few right hands and is going for a BACK SUPLEX OFF THE TOP ROPE TO THE RINGSIDE FLOOR… BUT RYAN SAVAGE HEADS OVER AND HOOKS MATT MILES FOR THE POWERBOMB!!!!! AND RYAN SAVAGE TAKES MATT MILES AND JORDAN CISERANO DOWN TO RINGSIDE WITH THE POWERBOMB/BACK SUPLEX TOWER OF DOOM!!!!!! WHAT AN IMPACT!!!!
Stew: AREN MSTISLAV RUNS ONTO THE APRON, EYEING RYAN SAVAGE LIKE A HAWK AS HE LOOKS TO RECOVER… BUT LOOK AT MR. DEDEDE, HE GETS UP ON THE APRON AND AREN RUNS AT DDD….. OH MY GOOD LOOOOORD!!! DEDEDE HITS THE POP-UP SPEAR ON AREN MSTISLAV OFF THE APRON!!!!!!!!!!
Ryder: MOTHER OF GOD.
Mercer: HOOOOLY SMOKES!!!! DEAR CHRIST THAT WAS INCREDIBLE! DEDEDE, MSTISLAV, MATT MILES, CISERANO ARE ALL DOWN! Ryan Savage breaks the count by the referee who was counting up to “8”, and he rolls back out grabbing the still recovering Caliban and rolls him back in the ring…. and RYAN SAVAGE SCOOPS CALIBAN UP AND HITS THE EDGING!!!!! OUT!!!! HUUUUUMANITYYYYY!!! PACKAGE PILEDRIVER, HOOK OF THE LEG!!!
Ref: OOOOOONEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOO!!! THREEEEEEEEE!!!
( Ding! Ding! Ding! )
( “On Sight” by Kanye West hits and the referee raises Ryan Savage’s hand. Mr. DEDEDE enters the ring with the tag team title belts and both men celebrate with their gold in the ring. )
RA: HERE ARE YOUR WINNERS AND STILLLLLLLLLL THE EAW TAG TEAM CHAMPIOOOOONSSSS… RYAN SAVAGE… MR. DEDEDE….. THEEEE SAVAAAGGGEEE RYAAAANNNNNNNSSSSS!!!
Stew: I FEEL LIKE I JUST GOT OFF OF A ROLLERCOASTER, GUYS!
Ryder: NO KIDDING, WOW! If this match wasn’t Dudebro, I don’t know what Dudebro IS! These six hombres went ALL OUT, this match was at 100 miles per hour man!
Mercer: No kidding, and Ryan Savage with the clinch performance manages to retain the Tag Team Championships along with Mr. DEDEDE… I mean just LOOK at some of these highlights!
( Major highlights are shown throughout the match, and the camera pans back to DEDEDE and Ryan Savage backing away on the ramp, holding their belts in the air in triumph and celebrating with fans at ramp-side )
( Camera pans backstage, where the camera picks up a scene with Showdown’s Daniel Marshall hanging out backstage, as he is spooked up from behind by Damien Murrow. )
Damien: Why, hello there Daniel.
Daniel: Murrow. What may I offer the pleasure?
Damien: Oh, nothing – nothing at all that you can offer me, anyway. I’m just intrigued as to why you’re here tonight. You aren’t booked for any match, especially not the Grand Rampage match itself. Have you forgotten that you had lost your spot in the GR?
Daniel: Oh trust me… the last thing I’d do, is forget that loss. Actually, it’s my motivation. For ALL I do.
Damien: I thought as much… you think I don’t see right through you, don’t you? You’re here on your own ambitions… you have a score to settle.
Daniel: And what business is it to you, if I do?
Damien: Why, everything – as Showdown general manager, I dare to have bragging rights over the other brands. And if your intentions are to eliminate Troy Archello yourself, without being involved in the match – that I cannot allow.
Daniel: Then suspend me.
Damien: Oh, you do have a set of balls to you, don’t you. Most would freight at standing up to a position of authority. Well… I won’t suspend you, no I won’t give you that pleasure. I sure have enjoyed Troy making an example out of you week after week… but I can take away something I was going to give you in a week’s time.
Daniel: And what is that?
Damien: You see… I have a VERY, and I mean… VERY intriguing tournament starting up two weeks after the Grand Rampage, Showdown exclusive. And as of right now, you are slated to be apart of it. YOu wouldn’t want to jeapordize such an opportunity do you? Because listen here, and listen closely… opportunities, for men like you who are grasping at the straw… become harder and harder to swallow down when you get on the wrong side of power. Don’t get on the wrong side of the power, and who knows… maybe you’ll be seen as a Spartan of Showdown.
( Damien Murrow walks away confidently, as Daniel Marshall looks on confused. )

Kawajai: And it’s already that time of the night as the cold, merciless, and wrathful Charlie Scene challenges the newly-crowned, regretless, opportunity-capturing EAW Champion in Xavier Williams. This contest began as a squabble between EAW’s Chairman, Zack Crash, and Voltage’s General Manager, Y2Impact, but it’s since then taken on a life of its own between its two competitors that has become a war of pride, deliverance, and World Championship gold.
(Promo package plays for the EAW Championship feud between Xavier Williams and Charlie Scene)
(Camera transitions back to Signal Iduna Park as the titantron shows a picture of every previous EAW Champion: CM Ronn, Mak, Masters, Mr. DEDEDE, Lethal Consequences, StarrStan, Captain Charisma, Extreme Enigma, Montell Smooth, Cyclone, Kevin Devastation, Alexander Da Vinci, The Heart Break Boy, John Alloy, Superior Quality 85, Kawajai, Jacob Senn, and Diamond Cage before showing a picture of Xavier Williams with the Title and then a picture of the EAW Championship itself)
(The lights go out and the titantron shows various clips of life in a prison while a countdown clock of of 1 ½ years quickly dwindles down. The images and clips grow more rapid and louder with audibles of men screaming in pain, prison guards yelling, and other various sounds while the countdown dwindles quicker and quicker…)
(The titantron shows a visual of a prison cell opening up before cutting to Charlie Scene’s tron as “Motionless In White – Reincarnate Instrumental” plays all throughout the arena)
Mercer: Here he is… A man that’s waited 1 ½ years in a cold, lonely prison cell just for an opportunity like this.
(A stoic, determined Charlie Scene makes his way out to the stage in his usual attire with an equally as determined Y2Impact following behind him)
Mercer: Anyone else in his position would probably be shaking in their boots at such a huge shot such as this that Charlie Scene EARNED here tonight at the Grand Rampage, but not our challenger. You can tell this man has been through Hell and back and if anyone is starving for a taste of World Championship gold the most, you can bet without a doubt that it’s him.
(Charlie enters the ring and waits as “Chalk Outline” by Three Days Grace plays all throughout the arena)
Kawajai: We’ve got our challenger, and now here comes the Champion himself, making his first… And potentially last defense, if Impact and Charlie have anything to say about it.
(Xavier Williams makes his way out to the stage in new, customized gold and white attire to match the EAW Championship around his waist before he’s caught off-guard by Zack Crash suddenly joining him)
Kawajai: It looks like both the Chairman and Voltage GM are eager to see this contest up-close and personal tonight as the Champion makes his way towards the ring. Xavier Williams has been very vocal about not regretting how he came about his Championship win at Reckless Wiring, or any opportunity he took, for that matter. However, opportunity may not come so easily tonight. He’s got a huge obstacle in his path, but he poses just as much of a threat to his challenger.
(Xavier Williams enters the ring as “Chalk Outline” fades out as both he and Charlie Scene stare down from adjacent corners)
Announcer: The following contest is scheduled for ONE fall…. AND IS FOR THE ELITE ANSWERS WRESTLING CHAMPIONSHIIIIIIPPPPPPP!!!……. First, in the corner to my left, the challenger…. Accompanied by Y2Impact…. From North Central Correctional Institution in Marion, Ohio…. He weighed in tonight at 230 pounds…. CHARLIE SCCCCCCCCCCCCCEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEENNNNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEE!!!….
(Charlie remains motionless, not even blinking as he stares at Xavier and the EAW Title)
Announcer: And to my right…. Accompanied to the ring by Zack Crash…. From Detroit, Michigan…. He weighed in tonight at 215 pounds…. HE IS THE REIGNING AND DEFENDING EAW CHAMPION…. “THE YOUNG WOLF”, XAVIER WIIIIIIIILLLLLLLLIIIIIIAAAAAAAMMMMMMSSSSSSSS!!!….
(Xavier takes off his EAW Championship and holds it up in the air with an expression as equally as determined as his opponent. Xavier takes one last look at the EAW Title before handing it over to the Referee, who shows it to Charlie Scene before holding it up in the air for all to see. The Referee hands the Title off to the Timekeeper before finally calling for the bell)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Kawajai: This World Championship contest is officially underway as both competitors stare down – both men looking towards the other to make the first move… Both men looking very cautious here as they step out of their corners… Neither one–
Mercer: XAVIER EXPLODES FORWARD AND TAKES CHARLIE DOWN OUT OF NOWHERE! WILLIAMS NOW JUST THROWING A FLURRY OF SHOTS AT CHARLIE AS THE REFEREE TRIES TO PUT A STOP TO IT!
Referee: ONE! TWO!
Kawajai: CHARLIE STOPS THE ASSAULT WITH A STIFF SHOT TO THE FACE OF XAVIER! Both men race back to their feet! Charlie manages to get up on his feet first as he – XAVIER LEAPS FOR A JUMPING DDT! Charlie stops it dead in its tracks and forces Xavier off and backpedaling into the ropes! Charlie charges! Xavier uses the momentum from the ropes to charge himself and wins the exchange with a stiff clothesline as Charlie drops right on the back of his head! Charlie’s already looking to get back to his feet… But he’s struck with a big lariat from Xavier Williams as soon as he’s up! Charlie struggles this time to get back up once more… AND XAVIER SENDS HIM STRAIGHT OVER THE TOP ROPE AND TO THE OUTSIDE WITH ANOTHER BIG LARIAT! Charlie crashes to the outside and scrambles to his feet using the apron while a concerned Y2Impact tries to talk to him! The Champion is out for blood in this one!
Mercer: Xavier knows that if he lets Charlie get offense in, it’s gonna deal him perhaps more damage than he can take! He needs to keep on his opponent as much as possible! Completely snuff out his flame! Impact’s trying to talk perhaps some strategy with Charlie here on the outside while Zack Crash looks very pleased with himself in the Champion’s corner… XAVIER NOT GIVING CHARLIE EVEN A SECOND TO RECUPERATE AS HE COMES FULL FORCE! SUICIDE DIVE!! IMPACT PUSHES CHARLIE OUT OF THE WAY! No! Xavier stops his momentum dead in its tracks as he has Impact’s ploy scouted and quickly readies himself on the apron! Charlie turns around as Xavier charges! XAVIER LEAPS OFF THE APRON WITH A BIG THESZ PRESS ONTO CHARLIE SCENE! THE CHAMPION ISN’T GIVING CHARLIE AN INCH! HE’S LAYING INTO HIS OPPONENT WITH RAPID RIGHT SHOTS! CHARLIE MANAGES TO PUSH WILLIAMS OFF OF HIM AND QUICKLY TRIES TO RUSH BACK TO HIS FEET!
Kawajai: WILLIAMS ISN’T HAVING IT AS HE GRABS CHARLIE AND DRIVES HIM STRAIGHT INTO THE BARRICADE! HE GRABS A HOLD OF CHARLIE IMMEDIATELY AND DRIVES HIM HEAD-FIRST INTO THE STEEL STEPS AS THE TOP GOES FLYING OFF AND NEARLY HITTING IMPACT! XAVIER WILLIAMS FINALLY GRABS CHARLIE AND SENDS HIM ROLLING BACK INTO THE RING! CHARLIE LOOKS LIKE HE KNOWS HE’S IN TROUBLE! HE’S IN SOME SERIOUS PAIN AS A VICIOUS XAVIER WILLIAMS FOLLOWS HIM INTO THE RING! Charlie doing his damndest to climb back up to his feet as Williams grabs a hold of him! CHARLIE SWINGS AROUND WITH A LOUD LARIAT TO THE COLLAR BONE OF WILLIAMS! THE CHAMPION IS SENT REELING INTO THE ROPES.. XAVIER LOOKS TO USE THE MOMENTUM AS HE COMES OFF WITH–
Mercer: THE HURLEY!!!! CHARLIE SCENE CAUGHT HIM WITH THE HURLEY OUT OF NOWHERE!!! XAVIER WILLIAMS HAS BEEN DRIVEN INTO THE CANVAS WITH GREAT FORCE AS CHARLIE SCENE STRUGGLES TO GET THE COVER!! DO IT! I DIDN’T THINK HE’D BE ABLE TO CONNECT WITH THAT SO EARLY HERE ON AS HE ROLLS WILLIAMS ONTO HIS BACK… CHARLIE COVERS!!!
Referee: ONE!!!!!!!!………. TWO!!!!!!!!!!!……….
Kawajai: AND THE CHAMPION KICKS OUT! Charlie may have laid him out with one of his strongest maneuvers, but there just wasn’t enough damage to keep the Champion down for three! Nonetheless, at the very least, catching Xavier with that managed to buy the challenger some time to recuperate and take full control of this contest… Charlie slowly rises back to his feet in a nearby corner as a still dazed Xavier Williams struggles to pull himself up to a vertical base.. The Champion knows he has to get back in this and recapture all of that momentum his opponent just stopped.. Charlie lunges forward and catches Xavier with a big chop block to the back of the left leg! Williams is dropped on his back, visibly in pain as he favors that left knee while a still damaged Charlie Scene grows a devious smile across his face… Impact seems to be right on the same page with his associate as Charlie immediately grabs the right leg of Williams and drags him to the nearby corner.. Charlie drops to the outside and pulls Williams to the ringpost to immediately swings the right leg into the post! He grabs the leg and swings it into the post again! And again! And once more! Charlie grabs the left leg of Williams and does the same thing as he just VICIOUSLY swings the Champion’s legs into that unforgiving steel post!
Mercer: This is a brilliant strategy, Kawa, ANYONE is useless without their legs, and doing this could easily kill any offense Williams attempts from here on out! His biggest asset is his speed, let alone the fact that he needs to be capable of hitting ANY maneuver, and with two injured legs, it’s all gonna be difficult to accomplish! Zack Crash looks none too pleased as he demands the Official put a stop to this use of the ringpost, and he does so as he tells Scene to take the match back into the ring… A sly-smiling Scene seems compliant as he rolls back into the ring and drags Williams back up.. Williams nearly can’t even be pulled up as his left leg gives out and he drops to one knee! Charlie deadlifts the Champion! AND DROPS HIM KNEE-FIRST UPON HIS OWN KNEE! Williams drops to the canvas in pain! CHARLIE SCENE NOW JUST MERCILESSLY STOMPING INTO THE LEGS OF XAVIER WILLIAMS! THE CHAMPION SEEMS POWERLESS BY THIS POINT! Impact’s having a good laugh here at ringside as he looks on! Xavier Williams could be in big trouble if this keeps up! Charlie Scene seems satisfied with himself as he stops the attack and admires looking down on the Champion, who writhes in pain, favoring his damaged legs!
Kawajai: A determined and angered Xavier Williams struggles to climb back up to his feet as Charlie Scene now seems to be mocking him; “encouraging” his opponent to get up.. And Charlie with an immediate kick into the right leg of Xavier as the Champion falls back down to the canvas! Charlie now with slaps to the back of Williams’ head!
Charlie (without a microphone): I waited a year and a half for this, Xav! I’m gonna enjoy every bit of this win!
Mercer: Charlie Scene without a care in the World as he openly tells Xavier he aims to torture him in this match! He clutches the hair of Williams and drags him slowly up! Xavier’s legs looking wobbly! Charlie– WILLIAMS MANAGES TO SPRING UP WITH A STIFF PUNCH STRAIGHT TO THE FACE OF CHARLIE SCENE! Where did that come from?! Williams is on spaghetti legs as a surprised and amused Charlie Scene sees his lip his busted.. A smile forms across his face… AND HE IMMEDIATELY FIRES BACK WITH A SICKENING SHOT OF HIS OWN TO THE FACE OF XAVIER WILLIAMS! The Champion drops down to the canvas in pain as blood drips from the bottom lip of Charlie, who disappointedly shakes his head, looking down upon the Champion! Charlie spits blood onto a downed Xavier before grabbing a hold of him and dragging him back up as quickly as possible! Charlie’s got Xavier by the throat as he verbally assaults his opponent! Xavier’s barely able to stay on his feet here! Charlie with a slap across the face of Williams! Another slap! Charlie shakes his head again as if he’s disappointed in the fight Williams is putting up… HE PULLS THE CHAMPION IN TO END THIS! THE HURLEY!!!!
Kawajai: SLEEPER HOLD!!! XAVIER WILLIAMS SLIPS OUT OF THE HURLEY AND INTO A SLEEPER HOLD ON THE CHALLENGER!! CHARLIE SCENE REALIZES HE’S IN TROUBLE! THIS IS A BRILLIANT TACTIC FROM WILLIAMS – USING A MANEUVER THAT DOESN’T NECESSARILY REQUIRE THE USE OF HIS LEGS!! CHARLIE IS STRUGGLING FOR DEAR LIFE! WILLIAMS LOOKS LIKE A MAN POSSESSED AS HE CONSTRICTS AROUND THE HEAD OF CHARLIE! LEGS MAY NOT EXACTLY BE REQUIRED FOR THIS, BUT THEY WOULD DEFINITELY HELP AS CHARLIE LOOKS TO FIGHT OUT OF IT! HE SWINGS A STIFF ELBOW BACK INTO THE RIBS OF XAVIER! ANOTHER ELBOW INTO THE RIBS! XAVIER ISN’T LETTING GO FOR ANYTHING! HE SWINGS A THIRD TIME, BUT THERE’S VISIBLY LESS POWER INTO THAT ONE! CHARLIE IS LOSING CONSCIOUSNESS! WILLIAMS CAN BARELY STAY ON HIS FEET, BUT HE ABSOLUTELY REFUSES TO LET GO OF THIS SLEEPER! CHARLIE DROPS DOWN TO ONE KNEE! XAVIER’S EYES ARE NEARLY BULGING OUT OF HIS HEAD AS HE TIGHTENS THIS SUBMISSION!!
Mercer:I can’t believe it! Charlie’s eyes are shut! He may be out cold! His body seems to go limp as he’s dropped to both knees! Xavier drops down to the canvas and takes Charlie with him as he keeps this hold in! Impact’s demanding Charlie get back in this, but I don’t think he can hear him, or anyone else for that matter! The Referee grabs the right hand of Charlie, picks it up… And it drops down to the canvas!
Kawajai: No sign of life from Charlie as the Official grabs the right hand of Charlie once more… And it drops to the canvas a second time!
Mercer: NO–CHARLIE’S FIGHTING! HE’S ALIVE ONCE MORE! CHARLIE SCENE FIGHTS AS IF HE WAS JUST SHOT UP WITH ADRENALINE AS HE VICIOUSLY TRIES TO WRANGLE XAVIER WILLIAMS OFF OF HIM, BUT TO NO AVAIL! CHARLIE MANAGES TO CLIMB BACK UP TO ONE KNEE AS WILLIAMS KEEPS THAT SLEEPER HOLD IN TIGHT! CHARLIE REACHES OUT FOR THE NEARBY TOP ROPE, BUT HE’S NOT CLOSE ENOUGH! IMPACT’S TELLING HIM TO DO IT! CHARLIE SCOOTS CLOSER… HE’S INCHES FROM IT! WILLIAMS ISN’T GONNA LET HIM! CHARLIE SPRINGS UP TO BOTH FEET WITH A BURST OF ENERGY AND PULLS HIMSELF AND WILLIAMS OVER THE TOP ROPE AND TO THE OUTSIDE OUT OF NOWHERE!! BOTH MEN GO CRASHING TO THE OUTSIDE! NO– LOOK AT THIS!! WILLIAMS STILL HASN’T LET GO OF THE SLEEPER!! I CAN’T BELIEVE IT! CHARLIE IS FIGHTING WITH EVERYTHING HE HAS ON THE OUTSIDE! WILLIAMS CAN’T WIN OUT HERE, BUT HE CAN STILL INCAPACITATE CHARLIE! CHARLIE’S UP ON BOTH FEET AND CHARGES WITH WILLIAMS IN TOW!! BOTH MEN GO CRASHING OVER THE BARRICADE AND INTO THE FRONT ROW!!
Kawajai: What a battle this has been! Neither one of these men want to give up whatsoever! I can’t even tell who’s in control after that! It seems… Charlie Scene! Charlie somehow makes it out as he pulls himself up using the barricade! The Sleeper Hold has been broken at last and Charlie certainly looks relieved knowing it! Charlie–WILLIAMS WITH A FOREARM OFF THE BACK OF CHARLIE’S SKULL! CHARLIE IS TURNED AROUND AND MEETS RAPID-FIRE SHOTS TO THE FACE FROM A FIRED UP XAVIER WILLIAMS! A BIG CLOTHESLINE SENDS CHARLIE OVER THE BARRICADE AND SCRAMBLING TO GET BACK UP! Williams seems to be in complete control as he climbs back over the barricade and sets Charlie dead in his sights! Williams tries to bring some life back into his legs as he hits them to get some circulation flowing again! Charlie’s up! WILLIAMS CHARGES WITH EVERYTHING HE’S GOT! CHARLIE SENDS HIM UP AND STRAIGHT INTO THE RINGPOST!! WILLIAMS IS NOW THE ONE SCRAMBLING – LOOKING FOR SOMETHING TO GRAB ONTO IN HIS DAZED STATE AS BLOOD RUNS DOWN HIS FACE FROM A GASH ON HIS FOREHEAD!!
(A replay is shown in slow-motion of Xavier Williams being launched up into the ringpost by Charlie Scene)
Mercer: A bloodied Xavier stumbles and catches himself against the barricade while Charlie Scene props himself up against the ring apron! Both of these men completely exhausted! Both men beaten and battered! They stare down with one another as the Referee refrains from counting after being told not to by both Impact and Zack… The look of fury on the faces of both of these men as they stare down… Both men lumber towards one another… They’re both dazed and damaged, but they’re not stopping! Charlie picks up momentum and strikes Williams with a big shot to the face! Williams fires back with a forearm off the face of Charlie! Charlie with a forearm of his own! Williams with a shot to the face of Charlie! Another shot! Another– it’s blocked by Charlie! European uppercut to a bloodied Williams! Another uppercut! ANOTHER! ANOTHER! ANOTHER! ANOTHER! HE’S GOT WILLIAMS UP AGAINST THE BARRICADE! SCENE WITH VICIOUS STOMPS TO THE BODY OF WILLIAMS NOW! Charlie puts a stop to it and immediately starts ripping at the mat! He’s got something big in mind as he exposes the cement! Charlie looks like he’s in another World by this point! He looks like he’s lost his damn mind! Charlie makes his way towards Williams and slowly pulls him up.. Williams– WILLIAMS SPRINGS UP WITH A HEADBUTT UPSIDE THE JAW OF CHARLIE! Charlie somehow still on his feet after that, but backs up a bit, visibly in pain while a bloodied Williams tries to drag himself up… HE’S UP– ROLLING ELBOW!!! IT MISSES! GERMAN SUPLEX!!! A SICKENING GERMAN SUPLEX DRIVES XAVIER WILLIAMS INTO THE EXPOSED CEMENT!!! JESUS CHRIST!!
Kawajai: The Referee and Zack Crash immediately go to check on Xavier Williams! He could be out cold! He could be dead! Charlie Scene may have just ended this man’s career for Christsakes! The Referee’s trying to communicate with Williams, but the bloodied Champion seems distant.. Williams pushes the Referee and Zack out of his way! He’s still somehow moving! Charlie’s rolled back into the ring and slowly gets to his feet as he sees Williams now struggling to get up – still wanting to fight! Williams is a bloody mess! He looks like he just crawled out of a wreck! Charlie even looks happy with this development as he watches his opponent crawl into the ring! Blood dripping down on the canvas as he journeys back to his feet! CHARLIE PULLS THE CHAMPION IN AND SENDS HIM NEARLY ACROSS THE RING WITH A BELLY TO BELLY SUPLEX! Williams is STILL trying to get back on this as he struggles, but Charlie isn’t letting him get any time to recuperate as he lays into him! Charlie mounts the chest of the Champion and lays into him with merciless shots! Williams can hardly even defend himself! The Referee pulls Charlie off of the Champion! Williams seems to be nearly out of it! The Referee tries to speak with Williams once more as he– CHARLIE OUT OF NOWHERE WITH A BOOT TO THE FACE OF WILLIAMS! Zack Crash yells something… The Referee seems to agree… He’s calling for the bell?
(DING! DING! DING!)
Mercer: Zack Crash takes the EAW Championship and drags Williams out of the ring… He helps Williams up the ramp as Charlie Scene and Impact both look confused…
Announcer: The Referee has ruled that Xavier Williams is physically unable to continue… Therefore–
(Impact swipes the microphone and pushes the Announcer away)
Impact: NO! THIS ISN’T GOING TO END LIKE THIS! GET BACK HERE, WILLIAMS, YOU COWARD!
(Xavier Williams stops with Zack on the ramp and looks back at Impact and Charlie Scene)
Impact: YOU KNOW WHO THE BETTER MAN REALLY IS! YOU KNOW I WAS RIGHT! CHARLIE SCENE IS THE NEW FACE OF ELITE! YOU’RE NOTHING! NOW YOU’RE GOING TO RUN AWAY WITH YOUR TAIL BETWEEN YOUR LEGS? YOU’RE A JOKE! YOU KNOW I’M RIGHT! YOU–
Kawajai: HOLD ON! XAVIER PUSHES ZACK AWAY! HE’S STUMBLING BACK TOWARDS THE RING! THE CHAMPION ISN’T GONNA LET IT END THIS WAY! WILLIAMS ROLLS BACK INTO THE RING AND USES THE ROPES TO HELP HIM UP AS HE YELLS FOR THE REFEREE TO RESTART THIS MATCH! IMPACT TELLS HIM TO DO IT AS AN ANGRY ZACK CRASH LOOKS ON! THE REFEREE’S DOING IT!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Mercer: BOTH MEN RUSH INTO ONE ANOTHER– THROWING LEFTS AND RIGHTS ALL OVER THE PLACE! CHARLIE SEEMS TO BE WINNING THE EXCHANGE OVER THE DAMAGED WILLIAMS AS THE CHAMPION IS BACKED INTO A CORNER! WILLIAMS SPITS BLOOD STRAIGHT INTO THE EYES OF CHARLIE! WILLIAMS RUSHES A TEMPORARILY BLINDED CHARLIE SCENE AS HE TAKES HIM DOWN! BOTH MEN JUST BRAWLING HERE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING!! BOTH MEN SCRAMBLE TO THEIR FEET! SCENE IS UP FIRST, BUT HE’S IMMEDIATELY TAKEN DOWN WITH A BIG FOREARM FROM WILLIAMS! SCENE SCRAMBLES BACK UP, BUT GETS TAKEN DOWN WITH A ROLLING ELBOW THIS TIME! HE’S LOOKING DAZED AS HE CLIMBS BACK UP.. WILLIAMS PULLS HIM IN!! CHARLIE FORCES WILLIAMS OFF AND INTO THE ROPES! WILLIAMS COMES BACK WITH A REBOUND LARIAT!! BICYCLE KICK FROM CHARLIE SCENE!! WILLIAMS WAS NEARLY TURNED INSIDE OUT!! CHARLIE SIGNALS THE END AS HE MAKES HIS WAY OVER TO THE NEAREST CORNER… He climbs up!
Kawajai: Scene is perched! THE INDICTMENT!!!! IT’S NO GOOD AS XAVIER PUTS BOTH KNEES UP!! CHARLIE SCENE WRITHES IN PAIN ON THE CANVAS, BUT TRIES TO CLIMB BACK UP TO A VERTICAL BASE AS WILLIAMS LOOKS TO DO THE SAME… THEY’RE UP! WILLIAMS CHARGES FORWARD, BUT HIS INJURED LEGS ARE WORKING AGAINST HIM AS HE STUMBLES! SCENE WITH A KICK TO THE GUT! THE HURLEY!!!! END OF HEARTACHE!!!! IT CONNECTS!!! WILLIAMS COVERS!!!
Referee: ONE!!!!!!!……. TWO!!!!!!!!………. THREE!!
Mercer: SCENE KICKS OUT!! HE’S STILL IN THIS! HE’S NOT FINISHED! WILLIAMS CAN’T BELIEVE IT! Williams knows he needs to keep this momentum up as he grabs a hold of Scene and does his damndest to drag him up with him to their feet.. Scene forces himself up and nails Williams with a hard shot! Another shot! Williams fires back with a rolling elbow off the face of Charlie! CHARLIE WITH A BICYCLE KICK! NOBODY’S HOME! END OF HEARTACHE!!!! A SECOND END OF HEARTACHE CONNECTS AS WILLIAMS HOOKS THE LEG!!
Referee: ONE!!!!!!!……… TWO!!!!!!
Kawajai: THE REFEREE IS PULLED TO THE OUTSIDE BY IMPACT?! What?! The Referee is yelling at Impact, who completely ignores him and swipes the EAW Title from the Timekeeper!! He slides into the ring with it as the Referee follows! The Referee swipes the Title out of Impact’s hands as Williams slowly rises back up with Charlie.. The Referee hands over the Title to the Timekeeper AS IMPACT CHARGES FOR WILLIAMS! WILLIAMS DODGES AS IMPACT ACCIDENTALLY NAILS SCENE!!

(DING! DING! DING!)
(“Chalk Outline” by Three Days Grace plays all throughout the arena as Xavier Williams is handed his EAW Championship by Zack Crash and helped back to his feet)
Announcer: The Winner of this contest by pinfall!!….. AND STIILLLLLLLLLL EAW CHAMPION….. XAVIER WIIIIIILLLLLLLIIIAAAMMMSSSS!!!!
Mercer: What a brutal contest between these two men! Two men who gave it their absolute ALL just to hold that EAW Championship, but in the end, it seems as though Impact’s plan backfired on him! Williams managed to capitalize where it mattered most and even gave up the opportunity to walk out on this contest with his Title to prove himself!
Kawajai: Impact looks none too happy as he realizes what just happened… Williams and Crash make their way up the ramp in celebration as Impact enters the ring to check on Charlie… A damaged Charlie Scene doesn’t seem to even realize what just happened.. Impact helps Charlie up… No, Impact drops him! Impact looks furious as he looks down at Scene…
Mercer: I’m not sure what to think of this… Impact now just exits the ring and leaves Charlie Scene on his own as the Official checks on Charlie… Nonetheless, congratulations to Xavier Williams in a huge victory tonight and his first successful Title defense.
(Xavier Williams celebrates with his EAW Championship on the stage with Zack Crash as a furious Impact rushes pass them)
( Screen fades backstage, where Pierre McGuire is seen standing by. )
Pierre: Ladies and gentlemen… my guest at this time… THE NEW New Breed Champion… STARKMANNNNN!!!!!
( Stark appears into the screen, all giddy with the championship belt draped over his shoulder. )
Pierre: I HAVE to ask, how does it FEEL to be the New Breed Champion?
Stark: I can’t even put it into words, Pierre… truly this is an honor to be standing before this company, gracing this championship. You don’t know how hard I’ve worked for this… through all the doubts, from self and outside, I actually did it. I actually beat Jamie O’Hara and Clark Duncan. I DID as I said I would… but it wasn’t easy. But here I stand. And here I reign.
Pierre: That you do! Definitely an impressive performan —
( Pierre stops mid-sentence, as Jamie O’Hara enters the screen. Jamie says nothing, as he locks eye with Stark, with nothing but silence… until Jamie extends his hand out, and Stark reluctantly accepts it. )
Jamie: Congratulations… you better make that championship worth your victory. Because if not, don’t think for one second, I won’t come back and claim what’s mine.
( Jamie bolts off, with Stark looking on with a blank expression – before the camera fades elsewhere. )
Ring Announcer: The following contest is scheduled for ONE fall… and it’s for the THE ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP!!!
(“Asylum” by Disturbed plays all throughout the arena as Psycho Brody makes his way to the stage in a black ring attire with Dr. Erik Vance by his side)
Ring Announcer: First, making his way to the ring… from St. Mary’s Mental Institution!… weighing in at 309 pounds!… accompanied to the ring by Dr. Erik Vance… PSYCHO BBBBBRRRRROOOOODDDDDYYYYY!!!…
Eddie Mack: This started back at, well, Reckless Wiring in the Main Event with Starr Stan vs. Norman Hellion – it seemed that would be the end of Starr Stan’s career but then he says to Norman Hellion “Lannister sends his regards” and that’s what you and I were confused about, we had no idea why Starr Stan would say that to him but we found out shortly thereafter, which led to the Answers World Championship changing hands and then on Showdown. It was a deal – Lannister helps Starr Stan and Starr Stan has to face Psycho Brody for the Answers World Championship. That was the deal but you know Starr Stan isn’t going to let Psycho Brody beat him and take the Answers World Championship away from him and you know Psycho Brody is looking to bring it back to RAGNAROK!
(“2nd Sucks” by A Day To Remember plays all throughout the arena as Starr Stan makes his way to the stage in a black, red, white and blue ring attire with the Answers World Championship around his waist)
Ring Announcer: And his opponent, making his way to the ring… from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania!… weighing in at 240 pounds!… HE’S THE REIGNING AND DEFENDING ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION… STARR SSSSSTTTTTAAAAANNNNN!!!…
Matt Ryder: Starr Stan and Psycho Brody have had altercations with one another, Psycho Brody has taken Starr Stan out and Starr Stan just last week on Showdown had Dr. Erik Vance and despite Psycho Brody trying his best to make sure that he wouldn’t get hurt, Starr Stan connected with the Olympic Slam on him and got out of the ring before Psycho Brody to get a hold of him. For Brody, this is personal but for Starr? This is to show why he’s the Answers World Champion and that Brody is second to him like everyone else is!
(Starr Stan unstraps the Answers World Championship from his waist and hands it to the referee who raises it for all to see and then signals for the bell)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Eddie Mack: And just as the bell has rung these two lock up and they’re in a struggle… Psycho Brody pushes Starr Stan into the corner with the lock up still in… but Starr Stan then pushes him out of the corner! You’d think that Brody would just overpower him but Starr isn’t letting him… Brody tries to get Starr into something here… but Starr grabs a hold of Brody’s beard and then gets him in a hammerlock! Brody grabs at Starr’s ankle and sweeps his feet out from under him and Starr falls down onto the mat as he landed on his back there… Brody with an elbow drop… but Starr rolls out of the way and Brody’s elbow hits the mat hard! Starr gets back up to his feet quickly and grabs a hold of Brody as he has him in a headlock on the mat… but Brody gets out of it… and they’re back up to their feet! You just have to see this… Brody and Starr are staring each other down… and Starr with a knife-edge chop! Brody with a knife-edge chop of his own! Starr comes back with another knife-edge chop! They’re just lighting each other’s chests up with these knife-edge chops! And Brody with a flurry of knife-edge chops to the chest of Starr!
Matt Ryder: You hear that?! You hear those knife-edge chops?! Psycho Brody is putting all of his power into those chops just lighting up Starr Stan’s chest! And?! And Starr with a flurry of knife-edge chops of his own to the chest of Brody and some elbows and then a slap to the side of Brody’s head! Brody staggers backwards and Starr connects with a spinning backfist to the head of Brody but he’s just not letting up! Starr then connects with a kick to the side of Brody’s head as he picks him up and connects with a side slam! Starr follows it up with a rear chinlock on the mat as Brody is trying to get out of it but Starr has it locked in tight! Starr wrenches on it as Brody tries to get up to his feet… Brody elbows Starr in the midsection and is back up to his feet as he Irish whips Starr to the ropes… Starr rebounds off of them and into Brody who connects with a back body drop! Brody waits for Starr to get back up to his feet… Starr is up… and Brody takes him back down with a clothesline! Starr gets back up to his feet quickly and Brody takes him back down with another clothesline!
Eddie Mack: Starr Stan gets back up to his feet quickly and into Psycho Brody who grabs a hold of him and then goes for a belly to belly suplex but Starr Stan reverses it into a belly to belly suplex of his own! And then he goes up to the top of the turnbuckle and waits for Brody to get back up to his feet… Brody is up… Starr turns around on the turnbuckle and then jumps off as he connects with a moonsault! Both of them are down and the referee may have to make a count! But Starr is pulling himself to his feet as Brody is starting to move but not up to his feet… Starr grabs a hold of Brody and picks him up… and connects with a German suplex! Starr… Starr still has the hold on him as he goes for another German suplex… and connects with it! Starr then connects with another German suplex! The fourth German suplex?! –Brody reverses out of it and lays into Starr with lefts and rights! Brody isn’t too happy after those three German suplexes and he’s just unloading on Starr with those punches! Brody backs off of him and… and… MENTAL BREAKDOWN!!! BRODY WITH THE MENTAL BREAKDOWN AND STARR JUST FOLDED!!! BRODY HAS HIM FOR THE COVER!!!
Referee: ONE!!!!!!!!……… TWO!!!!!!!!………
Matt Ryder: No! Starr Stan kicks out after the count of two and Psycho Brody is just frustrated because of that as he grabs a hold of him and picks him up before Irish whipping him into the corner… Psycho Brody charges! As he connects with a clothesline in the corner! Starr stumbles out of the corner as Brody grabs a hold of him and slams him down to the mat! Brody presses his boot against the throat of Starr as Starr is gasping for air! The fans are booing him as he keeps his boot there while Starr is trying to get it off of him! Brody removes his boot from Starr’s throat but quickly picks him up and sets him up… Starr with a drop toehold as Brody’s face bounces off of the turnbuckle in the corner! Brody staggers backwards as Starr grabs him by the waist and has his hands intertwined… ELITE FOUR!!! STARR CONNECTS WITH THAT FOURTH GERMAN SUPLEX AS BRODY IS TOSSED ACROSS THE RING!!! AND BRODY LANDS ON THE BACK OF HIS NECK!!! Starr coughs as he holds his throat after Brody had his boot against it… then Starr crawls over to Brody… and has the cover on him!
Referee: ONE!!!!!!!!……… TWO!!!!!!!!………

Starr then grabs a hold of one of his feet and is going for it but Brody uses his strength and pushes Starr off of him! Brody gets up to his feet as Starr charges at him… and goes for a clothesline… but Brody ducks underneath it! Starr rebounds off of the ropes and goes for a flying forearm!

And then connects with a discus European uppercut! Starr picks him up as he goes for a body slam… but Brody gets out of it and lands behind Starr… AS HE CONNECTS WITH A FEW ELBOWS TO THE BACK OF HIS HEAD!!! BRODY WITH THOSE VICIOUS ELBOW SHOTS TO THE HEAD OF STARR AND STARR IS UNABLE TO DEFEND HIMSELF!!! BRODY THEN THROWS STARR INTO THE CORNER AS STARR IS JUST HANGING LIMPLY IN THE CORNER!!!
Matt Ryder: Starr Stan knows that Psycho Brody is in a vulnerable position as he charges… and connects with a running knee to the face! Starr Stan then grabs a hold of him and pulls him out of the corner as he picks him up… and connects with a snap suplex! …Oh! Starr Stan grabs a hold of him again and connects with another snap suplex! And then he waits for Brody to get back up to his feet… Brody is slowly getting back up to his feet… and Starr has him up and over his shoulders!

Brody is back up to his feet as he goes over to the downed Starr and picks him up… Brody may be looking to end this as he sets him up… but wait!

Starr waits for Brody to get back up to his feet… Brody is up slowly… and Starr grabs him from behind! But Brody with those elbows to the face as he turns around and clotheslines Starr to the mat!

Matt Ryder: NO!!! STARR STAN KICKS OUT JUST BEFORE THE COUNT OF THREE AND PSYCHO BRODY IS YANKING ON HIS BEARD IN FRUSTRATION AS THAT COULD HAVE BEEN THE END!!! THAT WAS CLOSER THAN BEFORE!!! Brody… Brody is just telling at Starr to get up… this is just like when Norman Hellion was yelling at him to at Reckless Wiring! Starr is back up to his feet but barely as he had to use the ropes to help himself up… and Brody goes after him! But Starr catches him off guard with a roundhouse kick to the face of Brody! Brody staggers backwards as he’s still on his feet… Starr grabs a hold of him and has him up on his shoulders… but Brody lands on his feet behind him and pushes him into the corner!

Starr with a few lefts and rights… then a few more lefts and rights… as he takes Brody down to the mat and is going for the Kimura Lock! Brody is trying not to let it get locked in but Starr is just too damn good as he has it locked in! The Kimura Lock is locked in and Brody just might have to tap! Brody… HEY!!! DR. ERIK VANCE!!! HE’S ON THE RING APRON AS HE’S DISTRACTING THE REFEREE!!! BRODY HASN’T TAPPED… AND STARR RELEASES HIS HOLD ON BRODY!!!

AND SO HAD I!!! UNBELIEVABLE! JUST UNBELIEVABLE!

(“Faith” by Devour The Day plays all throughout the arena as three Agents of Extreme make their way to stage)
Matt Ryder: WHAT? WHAT IS THIS ABOUT? WHAT ARE THEY DOING OUT HERE? BRODY DROPS STARR… AND ALL THREE OF THEM GET UP ON THE RING APRON AS THEY STARE BRODY DOWN… THEN THEY ENTER THE RING AS THEY ALL GO AFTER BRODY WHO’S TRYING TO FIGHT THEM OFF!!!

(“2nd Sucks” by A Day To Remember plays all throughout the arena as Starr Stan is handed the Answers World Championship and has his arm raised by the referee)
Eddie Mack: Starr Stan may have not won the match how he wanted to but he’s STILL the Answers World Champion and that, at the end of the day, is what matters. Starr Stan was going to make Psycho Brody tap but Dr. Erik Vance just had to interfere and attack him with that steel chair. Starr Stan is the one standing with the Answers World Championship after all of that.

(Y2Impact, Zack Crash, Xavier Williams and Charlie Scene all exit a stretch limo wearing suit & tie’s. Quality Control clear the way of rabid fans as they make their way through.)
(Another stretch limo pulls up, and House Vendetta exit the limo all wearing black tuxedos except for Kendra, who dons a black dress and heels and Norman Hellion, who’s wearing his ring gear. )

(We get a recap video of all of the events leading up to the EAW World Heavyweight Championship match starting from Tyler Parker winning the EAW Championship at King Of Elite, Lucian Black winning the Number 1 Contenders match at Reckless Wiring, and their feud up until this very point.)
(Back to the ring now as the ring announcer is set and ready to announce.)
Ring Announcer: Ladies and gentlemen, the following contest is scheduled for one fall and it is for the EAW World Heavyweight Championship!
(“Locked And Loaded” by Godsmack begins to play to a massive reaction as Lucian Black walks out to the ring looking nothing but absolute business.)
Ring Announcer: Introducing first, THE CHALLENGER! From San Francisco, California weighing in at 265 pounds, he is THE SAMOAN SUPERMAN, LLUUUUCIIIANNN BLLLAACCKKKK!!!
Stew-O: Ever since the start of this year, Lucian Black has been nothing but an absolute dominating machine on Dynasty barreling through every single person who stood in his way and on top of that just eight nights ago, had an impressive victory against EAW Hall Of Famer, Mr. DEDEDE and that is giving him even more momentum into tonight’s contest!
Jake Mercer: That is very true Stew-O! Back at Reckless Wiring last month before our EAW Champion Xavier Williams shockingly cashed in his briefcase to become the EAW Champion, Lucian Black defeated him in a gruelling steel cage war to earn the right to face Tyler Parker tonight!
Matt Ryder: I’ll be honest here broskis! After two amazing Showdown matches, this contest between Lucian Black and Tyler Parker definitely has a tough act to follow, but at the same time this should be a great World Title match and I can hardly wait!
(The sound dies down as “An Island” by Chevelle plays to a gigantic pop as Tyler Parker comes out with a big smile on his face and the World Heavyweight Championship title belt around his waist.)
Ring Announcer: And his opponent, THE CHAMPION! From San Diego, California weighing in at 213 pounds he is the CURRENT EAW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION! THE LIEGE OF LIGHT, TYYYLLLERRRR PPARRRKKKKERRRR!!!!
Stew-O: And here is the man of the hour! The man who is the current EAW World Heavyweight Champion, Tyler Parker! Back in January this year, Tyler Parker officially dethroned Mr. DEDEDE to become the new champion ending the match, KOing DEDEDE after a brutal series of five Across The Parks.
Jake Mercer: And at the same time would you listen to this reaction? Over 70,000 people tonight are just on their feet in anticipation for this man! You can tell this match is going to have some fire, have some intensity and will definitely have some heat!
Matt Ryder: If there’s one thing I know it’s that this is a match that the fans have been waiting to see, and it’s a match that we definitely can’t wait to see start! It’s Tyler Parker vs. Lucian Black for the EAW World Heavyweight Championship live tonight in Dortmund, Germany and you can watch this action right now on the EAW Network!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Stew-O: AND IT IS GO TIME! PARKER VS. BLACK! EAW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP ON THE LINE! ONE FALL TO A FINISH! The Samoan Superman and The Liege Of Light are about to go head to head in this very ring for the richest prize of the game! AND CAN YOU FEEL IT JAKE AND MATT!? This crowd is going nuts here! Both of these guys are circling around the ring now, slowly, trying to find any way of kicking things off!
Jake Mercer: AND HERE WE GO! Lock up in the middle of the ring! Both the champion and the challenger are pushing and pulling, fighting for position with neither of these guys letting go! BUT HERE IT COMES! The strength advantage of Lucian Black is definitely coming into play here AS LUCIAN IS PUSHING TYLER PARKER DIRECTLY INTO THE TURNBUCKLE!
Matt Ryder: What an impressive feat of strength here by the challenger! Parker is just being pushed directly back into the turnbuckle AS HE HAS HIM JUST FIRMLY TIED UP IN HERE! LUCIAN IS NOT LETTING GO! HE’S PUSHING ONTO PARKER WITH ALL HIS STRENGTH AS THE REFEREE BEGINS THE COUNT!
Referee: ONNNNNNEEEEE! TWOOOOOOOOO!
Matt Ryder: AND THE SAMOAN SUPERMAN IS STILL NOT LETTING GO AT ALL!
Referee: THHRREEEEEE! FOOUUUUUURRRR!
Matt Ryder: And just before the referee could count to five Lucian Black let’s go! Lucian’s slowly backing away now whilst Tyler holds his hands up! Trying to get some distance right there between the two of them! Tyler’s still positioned in the turnbuckle right now AS LUCIAN BLACK IMMEDIATELY RACES THEN JUMPS UP INTO THE AIR! IT’S TIME! LEAPING CLOTHESLINE INTO THE CORNER!
Stew-O: AND NOOOOO!!! TYLER PARKER DIVES OUT OF THE WAY JUST AT THE NICK OF TIME AS LUCIAN BLACK COLLIDES HEAD ON INTO THE TURNBUCKLE! The San Francisco native dazed as he collides straight into the turnbuckle! AND LOOK AT THIS! TYLER PARKER NOW IS BACKED UP INTO THE OPPOSITE TURNBUCKLE! HE’S JUMPING! HE’S FIRED UP! HE’S RAVING AND READY TO GO!
Jake Mercer: AND OFF HE GOES! Parker races from one turnbuckle to the other AND CONNECTS WITH AN ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL DROPKICK TO LUCIAN BLACK! Lucian Black is stunned and dazed as he wanders out of the turnbuckle AND TYLER PARKER QUICKLY POSITIONS HIMSELF AROUND HIM! THE LIEGE OF LIGHT GRABBING ONTO BLACK’S HEAD AS HE DROPS HIM DIRECTLY BACK FOR A BEAUTIFUL INVERTED DDT! Black’s head bouncing off of the canvas as we get our first cover for this title match!
Referee: ONNNNNNEEEE!! TWOOOOOOO!!!
Matt Ryder: AND NO! KICK OUT BY THE CHALLENGER! That might have been a great inverted DDT but the champion is going to need to do a lot more damage than that to keep the Lucian Black down for this one! Black is pushing himself back up onto his feet as Parker gets ready to continue this battle against The Samoan Superman!
Stew-O: Parker and Black are both standing on their feet now and this battle is officially still continuing! PARKER RACES DIRECTLY AT BLACK BUT LUCIAN PICKS UP THE MAN FROM SAN DIEGO AND SCOOPS HIM UP INTO POSITION! Parker is high up in the air AS BLACK IMMEDIATELY PLANTS HIM DOWN ON THE GROUND FOR A SCOOP POWERSLAM!
Jake Mercer: We can just hear the impact of Parker’s back colliding straight onto the mat as Lucian Black is set to do some more damage right here and right now! LUCIAN BLACK LIFTS TYLER PARKER STRAIGHT UP OFF OF THE GROUND AND POSITIONS HIM BETWEEN HIS LEGS! I think it’s powerbomb time folks! BLACK LIFTING PARKER UP ONTO HIS SHOULDERS PREPARING TO DRIVE HIM TO THE GROUND!
Matt Ryder: But look at the champion! He’s fighting back! TYLER PARKER JUST RAINING A SERIES OF RIGHT HANDS DIRECTLY INTO THE CHALLENGER’S FACE! ANOTHER, ANOTHER, ANOTHER AND ANOTHER AND BLACK LETS GO! Parker pushes himself off of Black’s shoulders here AS BLACK GOES FOR A CLOTHESLINE ATTEMPT! NO HE MISSES! The champion ducks behind AND CLUTCHES TIGHT AROUND BLACK’S WAIST!
Stew-O: HE ATTEMPTS TO GO FOR A GERMAN SUPLEX! LIFTING WITH ALL OF HIS MIGHT BUT THE WEIGHT ADVANTAGE FOR BLACK MIGHT HAVE PARKER STUMPED! He lifts…lifts…AND GETS BLACK UP AND OVER! GERMAN CONNECTS! Tyler Parker just lifting up Black with all his strength and connecting with that German!
Jake Mercer: BUT CAN YOU BELIEVE THIS!? PARKER HAS THE HOLD LOCKED IN! THAT VICE GRIP AROUND BLACK’S CHEST AS THE TWO MEN SLOWLY GET UP! He can’t possibly going for another German!? Parker lifts…lifts…AND WITH ALL OF HIS MIGHT AND STRENGTH CONNECTS WITH A SECOND GERMAN! UNBELIEVABLE!
Matt Ryder: Tyler Parker! The Liege Of Light! Successfully connecting with two German Suplexes in a row on Lucian Black! OH COME ON! YOU HAVE TO BE KIDDING ME! I CAN’T BELIEVE THIS! PARKER STILL HAS THE VICE GRIP LOCKED ON LUCIAN BLACK! IS HE GOING FOR A THIRD GERMAN SUPLEX!? WILL HE COMPLETE THE TRILOGY!?
Stew-O: PARKER AND BLACK ARE BOTH ON THEIR FEET! IT’S GERMAN SUPLEX TIME! THE THIRD ONE IS COMING! BUT WAIT! Black is trying to get out of it! He’s throwing a series of stiff elbow shots to the head of Parker! ONE ELBOW! TWO ELBOWS! THREE ELBOWS! A FOURTH AND FINAL ELBOW AND PARKER FINALLY BREAKS LOOSE OF THAT HOLD!
Jake Mercer: Parker is a little bit dazed from those elbows BUT HE COMES DIRECTLY CHARGING AT LUCIAN BLACK! PARKER TAKES FLIGHT! HE LAUNCHES THE ATTACK NOOOOOO!! BLACK CATCHES PARKER IN MID AIR AND NAILS HIM WITH A SAMOAN DROP! CENTER OF THE RING! That was just brutal! That Samoan Drop might have taken everything out of the champion as Black goes for the cover!
Referee: ONNNNNEEEE!!! TWOOOOOO!!!!
Matt Ryder: AND TYLER PARKER GETS THE SHOULDER UP! What a match this has been so far folks! The 73,000 people here in Dortmund, Germany are loving every second of this and I have a feeling that this match is going to get bigger and better as it goes on! Black pulls himself back up to his feet and so does Tyler Parker slowly AS BOTH MEN NOW ARE BACK UP STARING EACH OTHER DOWN!
Stew-O: AND BAM! COLLAR AND ELBOW TIE UP! LOCK UP ONCE AGAIN! But the World Heavyweight Champion is quick and immediately goes behind Black locking on a tight hammerlock! He’s twisting that arm with everything he’s got as we see that Lucian is definitely in a lot of pain right now! BUT WAIT LOOK AT THIS! LUCIAN BLACK IS REACHING AROUND AND COUNTERS THE HAMMERLOCK WITH ONE OF HIS OWN!
Jake Mercer: And it is now Parker’s turn to see what it feels like on the receiving end of that painful hold! The champion now in a lot of pain AS HE WAIT! PARKER ROLLS THROUGH AND NOW REVERSES IT ONCE AGAIN INTO A HAMMERLOCK INTO HIS FAVOUR! The submission is locked on tight now AS WAIT! BLACK REVERSES THE HOLD AND LIFTS PARKER BACK ONTO HIS SHOULDERS! A second Samoan drop now!?
Matt Ryder: Black prepares to go for the drop as he starts to fall back NNNOOO!!! JUST BEFORE BLACK CAN DO SO PARKER SWINGS OFF OF HIS SHOULDERS STANDING IN FRONT OF HIM! BUT LOOK AT THIS! HE’S GRIPPED HIS HEAD THE WHOLE WAY AS HE TWISTS HIMSELF AROUND! PARKER HAS A FIRM HOLD OF THE HEAD AS HE COLLAPSES DOWN ONTO HIS BACK…AND LOCKS IN A TRIANGLE CHOKE ON LUCIAN AS THE CHALLENGER GOES DOWN TOO!
Stew-O: That was arguably one of the most beautiful counters I’ve ever seen! Tyler Parker has that incredible Triangle Choke locked in so tightly around Black’s neck and they’re in the middle of the ring too! Black is doing everything he can to fight out of it but I think he’s fading! AND I THINK THE REFEREE NOTICES THIS TOO!
Jake Mercer: The referee walks over to Lucian Black as THE CHALLENGER’S ARM IS BEGINNING TO DROP! IT’S BEGINNING TO FALL! THE REFEREE LIFTS LUCIAN’S ARM UP FOR THE FIRST TIME…AND IT DROPS! PARKER IS GIVING THIS SUBMISSION HOLD EVERYTHING HE’S GOT! THE REFEREE LIFTS LUCIAN’S ARM UP FOR THE SECOND TIME…AND IT DROPS AGAIN!
Matt Ryder: Tyler Parker is just squeezing the absolute life out of Lucian Black right here! One more drop of the arm here and this match is over Tyler Parker retains the EAW World Heavyweight Championship! THE REFEREE LIFTS LUCIAN BLACK’S ARM UP FOR THE THIRD AND FINAL TIME! AND IT GOES DOWN!!! WAIT NO! IT DOESN’T HIT THE FLOOR! LUCIAN HAS STOPPED IT IN THE NICK OF TIME AND HE’S NOW HOLDING HIS ARM HIGH UP!
Stew-O: Lucian Black is fighting! He isn’t quitting! The Man Of Honor is getting himself back up now AS HE’S ASCENDING UP ON TO ONE KNEE!? OH YOU GOT TO BE KIDDING ME! HE CAN’T DO THIS! LUCIAN BLACK IS NOW UP ONTO TWO KNEES AND TYLER PARKER STILL HAS THE TRIANGLE CHOKE STILL LOCKED IN! UP ONTO BOTH FEET NOW FOR LUCIAN BLACK!
Jake Mercer: Just look at this! This is the power and strength that The Samoan Superman possesses! LUCIAN BLACK IS PULLING HIMSELF UP! PULLING AND PULLING! AND OH MY GOD I CAN’T BELIEVE IT! LUCIAN BLACK IS NOW IN A FULLY STANDING POSITION AND HE’S HOLDING TYLER PARKER UP IN THE AIR! PARKER WITH THE TRIANGLE CHOKE STILL LOCKED IN! LUCIAN BLACK HAS PARKER PRIMED IN THE POWERBOMB POSITION AND I THINK HE’S WAITING TO DRIVE HIM STRAIGHT ONTO THE CANVAS!
Matt Ryder: WAIT WAIT WAIT WAIT! WHAT IS LUCIAN BLACK DOING IS HE!? OH GOD YOU HAVE TO BE KIDDING ME! THE SAMOAN SUPERMAN IS…HE’S!? HE’S MOVING TOWARDS THE ROPE!? OH GOD PLEASE NO! DON’T DO THIS! DON’T DO THIS LUCIAN! LUCIAN BLACK LIFTS TYLER PARKER UP HIGH…AND POWERBOMBS HIM OVER THE TOP ROPE SENDING THE CHAMPION CRASHING TO THE OUTSIDE!
Stew-O: THAT IS ABSOLUTELY INSANE! TYLER PARKER JUST COLLIDING BACK FIRST ON THE OUTSIDE AFTER LUCIAN BLACK NAILED THAT SICKENING POWERBOMB OVER THE TOP ROPE! And wait…that look in Lucian’s eyes…what is the challenger thinking right now? Tyler Parker is down on the outside…AND LUCIAN BLACK RACES FROM ONE SIDE OF THE RING AND THE OTHER AND HE FLIES INTO THE AIR! OVER THE TOP ROPE SUICIDE DIVE CONNECTING ON TYLER PARKER!
Jake Mercer: AN ABSOLUTELY SICKENING POWERBOMB FOLLOWED BY AN ABSOLUTELY SICKENING SUICIDE DIVE! I THINK THE BEST WAY TO DESCRIBE FEAR FROM ABOVE IS A 265 POUND SAMOAN FLYING IN MID AIR ABOUT TO DIVE ON TOP OF YOUI think both of these men are out of this match and it wouldn’t surprise me after we’ve seen this absolutely hellacious war! The referee begins the count-out!
Referee: ONNNNNEEEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOO!!!
Jake Mercer: No signs of life for either of these men! No movement at all!
Referee: THREEEEEEE!!!! FOUUUURRRRRR!!!
Jake Mercer: Tyler Parker is VERY SLOWLY crawling on the outside! Lucian Black slowly attempting to push himself back up!
Referee: FIIIVVEEEEEEE!!! SIIIIXXXXXXXX!!!
Jake Mercer: LUCIAN BLACK IS DRAGGING HIMSELF BACK TO THE RING APRON AND SLOWLY TRIES TO PULLS HIMSELF UP! TYLER PARKER IS UP ON ONE KNEE BUT IS STILL VERY VERY DAZED AND VERY VERY CONFUSED!
Jake Mercer: BLACK HAS HIS ARM INTO THE RING AS HE ATTEMPTS TO DRAG HIMSELF BACK IN! PARKER IS IN A CROUCHED POSITION BUT IS STILL VERY OUT OF IT!
Jake Mercer: LUCIAN BLACK USES THE FINAL OUNCE OF STRENGTH IN HIM AND PUSHES HIMSELF BACK INTO THE RING! PARKER IS NEARLY IN THE RING AS HE’S CROUCHED BUT NOW GRABBING ON TO THE BOTTOM ROPE!
Jake Mercer: LUCIAN BLACK HAS PUSHED HIMSELF BACK UP TO HIS FEET! HE’S TIRED! HE’S LOST A LOT OF ENERGY BUT IS HE STANDING! TYLER PARKER IS PULLING HIMSELF UP! PULLING WITH EVERYTHING HE’S GOT!
Jake Mercer: AND JUST BEFORE THE REFEREE CAN SIGNAL TO RING THE BELL TYLER PARKER ROLLS HIMSELF BACK INTO THE RING! Black is exhausted here as Tyler Parker pulls himself across the floor to a seated position in the turnbuckle AS HE SLOWLY GRABS ONTO EACH ROPE FROM THE BOTTOM GOING ONE BY ONE TO THE TOP AS HE IS EVENTUALLY BACK ON HIS FEET BUT HE’S RESTING IN THE TURNBUCKLE TOO!
Stew-O: BOTH OF THESE MEN ARE EXHAUSTED! BOTH OF THESE ARE MEN HAVE THROWN EVERYTHING AT EACH OTHER IN THEIR MOVE ARSENAL AND LADIES AND GENTLEMEN! EAW UNIVERSE! I THINK THIS IS OFFICIALLY THE BEGINNING OF THE END! Black slowly moves himself to the middle of the ring! Parker slowly moves himself to the middle of the ring…AND OFF WE GO!
Matt Ryder: CHAMPION AND CHALLENGER! TRADING RIGHT HANDS WITH EACH OTHER! Right hand from Black! Right hand from Parker! Right hand from Black! Right hand from Parker! BLACK! PARKER! BLACK! PARKER! BLACK! PARKER! BLACK! BLACK! LUCIAN BLACK GOES FOR A SHORT ARM LARIAT! BUT MISSES AS TYLER PARKER CATCHES HIM WITH A GLORIOUS KICK!
Jake Mercer: That was a hard stiff kick and I think that incredible hard kick shot has just echoed around the entire Signal Iduna Park here! Lucian Black is clutching onto his chest here AS PARKER SCORES WITH ANOTHER KICK! AND ANOTHER! AND ANOTHER! AND FINAL A MASSIVE SUPERKICK JUST CLOCKING LUCIAN BLACK BIG TIME!
Stew-O: I think the challenger to the EAW World Heavyweight Championship may be out for the count here! Tyler Parker now! Going out of the ropes and he’s standing on the apron! HE’S GETTING HIMSELF PUMPED AND READY! I THINK WE KNOW WHAT’S COMING NEXT! TYLER PARKER JUMPS UP AND SPRINGBOARDS OFF THE ROPES! FINAL CHAPTER TIME!
Matt Ryder: AND JUST AS TYLER PARKER IS ABOUT TO SCORE THE MOVE LUCIAN BLACK JUMPS AND CONNECTS WITH A SPEAR IN MID-AIR! HOLY S**T! HOLY S**T! THAT WAS JUST ABSOLUTE INSANITY! THAT SPEAR MUST HAVE ABSOLUTELY DESTROYED TYLER PARKER! THIS IS IT! THIS HAS GOT TO BE IT! THIS IS OVER! LUCIAN BLACK IS THE NEW CHAMPION! IT IS OVER! LUCIAN WITH THE COVER!
Referee: ONNNNNEEEEEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOO!!! THREEEEEEEEEE!!!

THIS MATCH SHOULD HAVE BEEN LIGHTS OUT RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW! THAT SPEAR SHOULD HAVE KILLED HIM YET SOME HOW TYLER PARKER HAS DEFIED EVERYTHING! SOMEHOW HE KICKED OUT!
Stew-O: THIS IS HOW MUCH THE EAW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP MEANS TO THESE TWO MEN! THESE TWO DYNASTY ELITISTS ARE JUST PUTTING EVERYTHING ON THE LINE, DESTROYING THEMSELVES JUST TO MAKE SURE THEY CAN BECOME THE TOP OF THE CHAIN OF DYNASTY!
Matt Ryder: TYLER PARKER IS STILL DOWN AS LUCIAN BLACK PUSHES HIMSELF BACK UP! Lucian lets out a MASSIVE ROAR AND IT IS OFFICIALLY TIME TO END THIS MATCH! LUCIAN BLACK LIFTS TYLER PARKER BACK UP! Lucian is dragging Parker over to the turnbuckle AS THE SAMOAN SUPERMAN RAMS PARKER’S HEAD INTO THE TURNBUCKLE PAD!
Jake Mercer: The Liege Of Light’s head connecting a few times into that pad AS LUCIAN BLACK PROPS TYLER PARKER UP ONTO THE TURNBUCKLE AND BLACK FOLLOWS SUIT! THIS CAN’T BE!!! LUCIAN BLACK AND TYLER PARKER ARE BOTH UP ON THE TURNBUCKLE AS LUCIAN IS ATTEMPTING TO SUPERPLEX THE CHAMPION!
Stew-O: BLACK IS ATTEMPTING TO SUPERPLEX PARKER UP AND OVER! BLACK CLUTCHES HIS HAND AROUND PARKER’S WAIST AND LIFTS UP ONCE! BUT PARKER LANDS BACK ON THE TURNBUCKLE! HE LIFTS UP A SECOND TIME! AND PARKER STILL LANDS ON THE TURNBUCKLE! HE LIFTS UP A THIRD! NO! THE CHAMPION IS CONNECTING WITH SOME SHOTS TO THE SIDE OF LUCIAN’S HEAD!

Stew-O: Lucian Black gave Tyler Parker one HELL of a run for his money tonight no question. Both of these Dynasty guys gave this match their absolute all tonight but Tyler Parker stands on top! The Liege Of Light is still your reigning EAW World Heavyweight Champion!
(And we get our final shot of Tyler Parker happy but exhausted holding onto his title belt as he’s leaning on the ropes whilst Lucian Black finally drags himself back up as he tries to comprehend what just took place.)

Y2Impact: You failed me. You miserably failed me.
( Impact continues pacing )
Charlie: YOU HAVE FIVE SECONDS TO SHUT YOUR (EXPLETIVE) MOUTH!!!!
( Charlie gets up and gets in Impact’s face. They stare down. )
Impact: No… no no no… you’re not going to get away so easily.
( Impact turns to the door to walk away )
Charlie: Where are you going.
Impact: I’m going to rectify this situation. And when I’m done with that, I’m going to deal with you.
( Imp walks out of the room and Charlie looks on before punching a hole through a wall in frustration )
( Camera cuts to the commentary table where Stew-O, Matt Ryder and Jake Mercer are seated )
Stew: It is HOT in Dortmund, this has been a BREATHTAKING show! An absolute THRILLER, and the best has yet to come! Still to come is the Grand Rampage match, and the showcase of the immortals that is Pain for Pride has been on all of our minds.
Mercer: That Pain for Pride bug is in the air, Stew!
Stew: It sure is, but we also want to remind you that the EAW Hall of Fame is returning this year and will be taking place the week before Pain for Pride at the 02 Arena! Tickets are on sale Monday at noon.
Ryder: And that’s not it dudebro! This week LIVE, EXCLUSIVELY on Showdown we will find out who the first entrant into the prestige EAW Hall of Fame will be! That’s right! You WON’T wanna miss it! Hopefully it’s me!
Mercer: I seriously doubt that.
( The audience can be heard cheering )
Stew: WELL FOLKS, LET’S TAKE IT UP TO THE RING WHERE OUR SPECIAL GUEST COMMENTATOR IS STANDING BY. IT’S TIME FOR THE GRAND RAMPAGE MATCH! THE BRAWL FOR IMMORTALITY IS NIGH, WHO WILL PUNCH THEIR TICKET TO THE MAIN EVENT OF PAIN FOR PRIDE? WE FIND OUT NOW!
(The camera transitions to a close up for the Pain for Pride VIII logo before slowly zooming out as a microphone begins to descend from the rafters revealing Michael Buffer standing in the ring.)
Michael Buffer: Ladies and Gentlemen… the following bout will be contested for one of the grandest prizes in the history of the business of professional wrestling: a guaranteed World Championship match of their choosing should they be able to defeat twenty nine other elitists; they will book their ticket for the main event of the Pinnacle of all Federations! The Granddaddy of them all! The Greatest Show on Earth! PAIN-FOR-PRIDE-EIGHT!… So… for the thousands sitting in attendance tonight in Dortmund, Germany… for the millions sitting at home around the world…. LEEEEEEEEEEEETTTTTTTTSSSSS GET READY TO RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAMPAAAGGGEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!
Michael Buffer: Introducing the man that drew number one…
Ryder: Who’s it gonna be?
(“”Wanted Man” (Acoustic) – Rev Theory” hits as Hades the Hellraiser rides out onto the stage, down the ramp and around the ring on his motorbike.)
Michael Buffer: Making his way to the ring… From Devil Town, North Carolina!… Weighing in tonight at 312 POUUUNDDSS!… HE IS “THE BIG DEVIL”… HAAADDEEESS THEE HEELLLLLRRAAIIISSEEERRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!
Mercer: OOOHHH BOY! What a way to kick this thing off! The winner of the 2014 Grand Rampage! The man that went on to beat both Dark Demon and Zack Crash at Pain for Pride to capture his first World Championship here in EAW, Hades the Hellraiser!
Ryder: Hades has his work cut out for him if he wants to repeat history here tonight, drawing the unlucky number one entrant.
Stew: I don’t think that it really affects Hades here tonight; last year, Hades broke the record for the most eliminations in a single Grand Rampage match, breaking his own record which he had previously set. Hades the Hellraiser has become extremely adept at surviving in this environment. But, with that being said, who’s going to be the man starting this match out with him?
(“Breathe In, Breathe Out” (instrumental) by Kanye West hits as Montell Smooth slowly makes his way through the curtain and down to the ring.)
Michael Buffer: Introducing the man that drew number two! Making his way to the ring… From Boston, Massachusetts!… Weighing in tonight at 280 POOOUNDSS!… HE IS THE “ESSENCE OF EXCELLENCE!”… MONTELLLLL SMMOOOTTTHHHH!!!!!!
Stew: It’s the man that made his return to this company a few short months ago after a long hiatus, Montell Smooth. Gentlemen I must say, what a way we’re going to start this match off! Hades the Hellraiser and Montell Smooth, two monsters standing toe to toe, just a taste of what we’re going to see in this match!
Mercer: What does Montell Smooth possibly think he’s going to be able to do to Hades the Hellraiser?! It doesn’t matter about what this man has done in the past, Stew; Hades the Hellraiser is going to tear this man to shreds! Hades, for once is going to make both Zack Crash and Voltage proud!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Stew: Hades the Hellraiser may look more focused that I’ve ever seen him in my life; the man’s coming off what may be the most humiliating loss in the entirety of his career and is looking to take one last reach at the same opportunity that he had last year and Montell Smooth is looking for the opportunity to stand at the top of the mountain once again! AND NEITHER OF THESE MEN WASTING ANY TIME ALMOST IMMEDIATELY STARTING TO TRADE BLOWS! Hades the Hellraiser quickly gaining the advantage, pushing the Essence of Excellence back against the ropes before looking to send him across the ring! BUT MONTELL SMOOTH REBOUNDS OFF THE ROPES AND RUNS THROUGH HADES THE HELLRAISER LIKE A FREIGHT TRAIN! HADES DOESN’T KNOW WHAT HIT HIM; HADES STUMBLING BACK TO HIS FEET AND MONTELL SMOOTH LOOKS FOR THE EARLY ELIMINATION! YOU COULDN’T POSSIBLY THINK THAT HADES IS GOING TO BE ELIMINATED THIS QUICKLY?!
Ryder: Montell Smooth trying to power Hades over the top rope, but, Hades quickly able to regain his senses, swing his elbow back and hits Montell Smooth in the side of the jaw. Montell Smooth stumbling back, possibly a little stunned as Hades fires back with another hard shot to the jaw! Hades once again sending Montell Smooth across the ring AND ONCE AGAIN MONTELL SMOOTH BURSTS BACK— BUT THIS TIME HADES SEES IT COMING AND ALMOST TAKES MONTELL SMOOTH’S HEAD OFF WITH A BIG BOOT! I THINK THAT I MAY HAVE JUST SEEN A TOOTH FLY OUT OF THE MOUTH OF MONTELL SMOOTH AFTER THAT SHOT! Montell pushing his way back to knee as Hades wastes no time, this time looking to get the early elimination on the Essence of Excellence as we get ready for our next entrant! Who’s gonna be number three?!
(“Monster” by Eminem hits as Terry Chambers bursts through the curtain and charges down to the ring.)
Stew: The young man from Voltage, Terry Chambers! This man looking to make a big statement tonight and what a better way than the Grand Rampage! Hades the Hellraiser has Montell Smooth teetering over the top rope, Montell trying to fight his way out of this position— BUT LOOK FROM BEHIND, OH MY GOD! TERRY CHAMBERS CHARGES AT BOTH HADES AND MONTELL, SENDING THE TWO OF THEM OF OVER THE TOP ROPE! THEY’RE BOTH ELIMINATED, YOU’RE KIDDING ME! NO, BOTH JUST, JUST ABLE TO HANG ON, BUT CHAMBERS THINKS THAT HE’S JUST PULLED A QUICK ONE! TERRY CHAMBERS IS CELEBRATING LIKE HE’S WON THE WHOLE THING AS HADES THE HELLRAISER ROLLS BACK UNDER THE BOTTOM ROPE AND MAKES HIS WAY BACK TO HIS FEET, TERRY DOESN’T HAVE A CLUE! TERRY TURNS AROUND— AND HADES WRAPS THAT HAND AROUND THE THROAT OF TERRY CHAMBERS! CHOKESLAM! BAH GOD ALMIGHTY WHAT A CHOKESLAM!
Mercer: Montell Smooth, who has now made his way back into the ring, drags Terry Chambers back to his feet and throws him straight over the top rope and we have our first elimination of the night! Buh Bye Terry!
Announcer: Terry Chambers has been eliminated!
Mercer: Chambers not having a great showing for Voltage in the opening minutes of this match! But look at Hades wrapping that giant hand around the throat of Montell Smooth, possibly looking for another chokeslam! But, Montell Smooth grabbing the arm of Hades the Hellraiser and COMPLETELY OVERPOWERS HADES, RIPPING THAT HAND OF HADES AWAY FROM HIS THROAT BEFORE POWERING HADES OFF OF HIS FEET AND DRIVING HIM DOWN WITH A STANDING SPINEBUSTER! I DON’T BELIEVE I HAD EVER SEEN THAT HAPPEN TO HADES THE HELLRAISER, I HAVE TO SAY THAT I AM IMPRESSED!
Ryder: Hades quickly rolling over to the corner, dragging himself back to his feet but Montell Smooth has him locked completely in his sights! And Montell Smooth squashes him with a body avalanche; Hades stumbling out of the corner, but, Montell doesn’t allow him to drop down to the canvas, instead locking his arms around the body of Hades the Hellraiser and takes him down with a belly to belly suplex!
(“Nothing Left To Fear” – Slash ft Myles Kennedy as the lights throughout the shot off and a single spotlight shines down as Vic Vendetta makes his way through the curtain and down to the ring.)
Stew-O: And things are about to pick up in a big way with the man that’s representing House Vendetta in the Grand Rampage, the former Interwire Champion, Vic Vendetta! Montell Smooth immediately turning his attention away from the downed Hades the Hellraiser and onto Vic Vendetta; Montell meeting Vic at the ropes, not letting him enter the ring! But, Vic with a sickening uppercut to the throat of Montell Smooth! Montell stumbling backwards as Vic is finally able to enter the ring; Hades recovering in the corner, I think that he’s more than happy to let these two go at it for the time being. Vic fires with another uppercut, this time to the bottom of the jaw of Montell Smooth. Montell falling backward but is able to catch himself on the top rope, not the position that you really want to find yourself in! Vic looking to eliminate Montell Smooth, but Montell quickly fighting out of it with a hard elbow to the back of Vendetta’s neck! Vic’s a little rocked as Montell Smooth tries to shake out of the cobwebs; Vic looking to send Montell over the top rope with a clothesline, but Montell is able to duck underneath!
Ryder: Montell hitting the ropes and bursts back across the ring and takes Vic Vendetta down with a clothesline of his own! Vic scrambling back to his feet as Montell drives the shoulder under the ribs of Vic, pushing him back into the corner! Montell repeatedly driving his shoulder into the mid section of Vic Vendetta, you can see the air being driven out of his lungs! Montell grabbing the arm of Vic Vendetta and whips him across the ring into the opposite corner! Montell Smooth looking to follow it up— BUT HADES THE HELLRAISER OUT OF NOWHERE WITH AN ALMOST DECAPITATING LARIAT! DID YOU SEE MONTELL’S HEAD SICKENINGLY WHIP BACK?! Vic stumbles out of the corner as Hades grabs him and wrenches that arm! I don’t know if this may be the smartest of moves by Hades the Hellraiser! Hades dragging Vic over to the corner, making his way up to the top rope! Hades walking across the top rope, he’s put himself in a really bad position here! Death From Above! Old School connects!
Mercer: Vic somehow on his feet, but he’s definitely on jelly legs! Hades wasting no time, wrapping that giant hand around the throat of Vic Vendetta and takes him down with another chokeslam!

NO, KERRY KELLER WITH A STRAIGHT KICK TO THE GROIN OF HADES! HADES DROPS DOWN TO HIS HANDS AND KNEES! KERRY KELLER QUICKLY MAKING HIS WAY TO THE TOP AS HADES PUSHES HIS WAY BACK TO HIS FEET!

Announcer: Hades The Hellraiser has been eliminated!
