(EAW Intro Plays)
(Camera opens to a panning shot of the Australian outback.)
Narrator: They say that some just want to watch the world burn… some men just seeking chaos… but if all the world would go to war… could you stand alone atop the rest?
(Various clips of the recent Grand Rampage preview matches begin to play, Rex McAllister versus Jack Haze, Charlie Marr versus Jamie O’Hara, Drake King versus Daryl Kinkade.)
Narrator: Some wish to rule the world… others to leave it to its ruin…
(Flashes are seen of the recent battles between Chris Elite, TLA, Malcolm Jones, and Ahren Fournier.)

(Jackson Blayde yells at Jack Ripley over the microphone as he walks away.)
Narrator: But sometimes even the unexpected make their way to the top…
(Shaker Jones points at Ms. Extreme’s PURE Championship.)
Narrator: And the very fate of the future may hang in the balance…
(SOSA Henderson stands nose to nose with Visual Prophet.)
Narrator: But what could that future entail?
(The Jaded Hearts hold their Unified Tag Team Championships high, the Revolution stand with fists raised in the air, Xander Payne and Myles stand face to face before turning to stand together and face the camera.)

(Charlie Marr, Darkane, Drake King, Mark Michaels, Rex McAllister, El Landerson, Jamie O’Hara, and Daryl Kinkade are all seen in various clips.)
Narrator: Or will you falter… and just be one of the rest?
(Screen cuts to black.)
Narrator: The path to Pride… begins in the depths Down Under…
(Camera opens to the roaring crowd inside the Melbourne Cricket Grounds as the sold out crowd go wild to see EAW’s 2019 Grand Rampage event! “Middle Child” by J Cole can be heard playing through the arena. The crowd cheer for a moment before the camera turns to the commentary desk currently with Gavin Kirkland and CJ Hana.)
CJ Hana: HELLO EVERYONE! I AM CJ HANA AND BESIDE ME IS GAVIN KIRKLAND! WE ARE LIVE FROM THE MELBOURNE CRICKET GROUNDS IN MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA! AND THIS IS EAW’S GRAND RAMPAGE! TONIGHT’S EVENT WILL BE MASSIVE AS WE WILL SEE TWO PAIN FOR PRIDE HEADLINERS DECLARED AS WE WILL HAVE THE FIRST EVER EMPIRE GRAND RAMPAGE TO DETERMINE THE CHALLENGER TO THE UNIFIED WOMEN’S WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP!
Gavin Kirkland: But more importantly we will also see the REAL Grand Rampage later on!
CJ Hana: “REAL” Grand Rampage…?
Gavin Kirkland: That’s the one! We will see 30 of EAW’s best men go to war for the chance at glory this coming June! Not to mention EVERY World Championship will be on the line tonight!
CJ Hana: As well as the National Elite, PURE, New Breed, and Unified Tag Team Championships! Every match tonight could be a career maker for the winner! And speaking of…
(‘Give ‘Em Hell, Kid’ by My Chemical Romance begins to blast across the public address system. The crowd begins to heavily jeer as Jake Smith and Joshua Nicholls make their way onto the stage.)
CJ Hana: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN WE ARE KICKING THINGS OFF WITH A MATCH FOR THE UNIFIED TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIPS! A MATCH WHERE EACH TEAM HAS A NATIVE AUSTRALIAN COMPETING FOR THE TITLES!
Gavin Kirkland: AND BESIDE ME I HAVE TWO BOTTLES OF FOUR PILLARS BLOODY SHIRAZ GIN AND SIX PLATES OF BUNNING SNAGS! G’ MOTHER FUCKING DAY MATES!!! YOU’RE ALL PROPER CUNTS!
CJ Hana: … he’s drunk and has already eaten two of these hot dog things. I apologize in advance because I feel like he’s gunna wild out during this match.
Gavin Kirkland: TALK LIKE A BLOODY AUSSIE, CJ! I HOPE EVERYONE AT HOME HAS THROWN THEIR SHRIMP ON THE BARBIE, AND IS READY TO GO! THESE ROUNDTABLE FLOGS LOOK PRETTY READY FOR THIS MATCH AS THEY MAKE THEIR WAY TO THE RING! TELL ME WHY WE ARE CALLING THIS SAUSAGE FEST AGAIN?!
CJ Hana: Because the Unified Tag Team Champions are members of Empire.
Gavin Kirkland: Aye. No Wucka’s then.
CJ Hana: :skip:
(Jake and Josh slip inside the ring and take their corner, as their music fades. After a moment it’s replaced by ‘It Follows’ by Cane Hill, and Xander Payne walks on stage.)
Gavin Kirkland: DEAR GAWD IN HEAVEN! WHAT IN BLOODY HELL IS A WHALE DOING WALKING ONTO THE STAGE?!
CJ Hana: Gavin! That’s the former New Breed God, Xander Payne!
Gavin Kirkland: Well this walking, breathing embodiment of obesity needs to piss right off. He must weigh close to 783 pounds!
CJ Hana: :whoa: We’re not gunna sit here and body shame Xander Payne. #PositiveAtmosphere
(Gavin Kirkland lets out a burp.)
(Xander’s music fades out as he gets halfway to the ring and is replaced by ‘Enemy Strike’ by Yuki Hayashi. The sold out crowd inside MCG absolutely loses their minds as Myles walks out.)
CJ Hana: You know, this is my first actual chance to get a look at The Wildcards and The Revolution and I must say, that I’m super stoked about this match. These two teams are sooooooooo talented and even though I’m definitely rooting for the Jaded Hearts to retain because #EmpirePride, it’s going to be an uphill battle for them tonight.
Gavin Kirkland: Seriously? You really think either of these two raggedy ass tag teams can dethrone the reigning Queens of Everything?! The Jaded Hearts are the 2018 Tag Team of the Year, and this ginger looking fruitcake walking to the ring with a golden fucking skull cap on looks like he just walked off the set of some ancient Roman fetish film.
CJ Hana: They shoulda just let James and Eve join me for this match…
(Myles joins Xander down at the ring and the two nod at one another before getting inside. They glare at The Revolution before taking their corner.)
(Myles’ theme music fades and ‘True Love’ by CFO begins to play. An extremely loud mixed reaction is heard as Sienna Jade and Kassidy Heart step onto the stage.)
Gavin Kirkland: :blessed:
(Sienna and Kassidy smile at one another and link their pinkies before making their way down to the ring.)
CJ Hana: I think the accomplishments of the Jaded Hearts just goes without saying. These two have literally won everything you can possibly win together as a team here in Elite Answers Wrestling, and are looking to pick up another successful title defense tonight.
Gavin Kirkland: Have I told you how fucking hard Sienna makes me now that she’s dyed her hair FOX blonde?! Both her and Assidy are the perfection representation of FOX’s vision of Empire and I’m busting out the lotion right freaking now. Stephon Hunte, may you always live forever in our hearts.
CJ Hana: Rest in hell.
(The Jaded Hearts get inside the ring, unstrap their titles, and pose with them for the crowd. After a moment, they pass them over to the referee and all three teams meet in the middle. Empire ring announcer, Maria Del Rey, steps forward. She is dressed in a super cute, yellow and green, Fashion Nova mini-dress, yellow stilettos, and her face has been beat to perfection. MAC’s ‘Lady Danger’ lipstick completes her look because it’s a universally flattering shade of red that looks great with all skin tones.)
Maria Del Rey: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SCHEDULED FOR…
Crowd: ONE FALL!
Maria Del Rey: AND IT’S FOR THE ELITE ANSWERS WRESTLING UNIFIED TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIPS!!!!
(The crowd pops huge for this.)
Maria Del Rey: INTRODUCING FIRST… AT A COMBINED WEIGHT OF 430 POUNDS… THEY REPRESENT THE ROUNDTABLE… THE ARE THE REVOLUTION… JAKE SMITH AND JOSHUA NICHOLLS!!!!
(The Revolution exchange smirks with one another as the crowd kind of gives them a mixed reaction. Aussie pride runs deep mates, and Joshua is from Australia.)
Maria Del Rey: AND THEIR OPPONENTS… AT A COMBINED WEIGHT OF 448 POUNDS… THEY ARE XANDER PAYNE AND MYLES… THE WILDCARDS!!!!
(The reaction for The Wildcards is overwhelming positive.)
Gavin Kirkland: I find it hard to fucking believe that those two combined only weigh 18 pounds more than The Revolution…
Maria Del Rey: AND THEIR OPPONENTS… AT A COMBINED WEIGHT OF GO FUCK YOURSELF APPARENTLY… THEY ARE THE EAW UNIFIED TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS… SIENNA JADE AND KASSIDY HEART… THE JADED HEARTS!!!!
(Another mixed reaction, but this one is mostly positive. All three teams step away from one another, as the belts are handed to the timekeeper and Maria gets out of the ring. Strategy is discussed and Josh, Xander, and Sienna climb out of the ring, and take their corners.)
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
CJ Hana: Jake Smith, Myles, and Kassidy Heart are getting us started for their respective teams. The Iconic Cup holder is standing in the middle, looking at Jake and Myles. Jake and Myles exchange looks with one another and they both rush towards Kassidy! Kassidy quickly darts out of the way, but that allows Myles and Jake to lock up and they’re fighting for position now. Jake has a slight size advantage over Myles and he utilizes that to his advantage and forces The Soldier into the corner. Jake begins putting the boots to Myles, but here comes our Kassidy, clubbing Jake in the back and rolling him up!
Gavin Kirkland: SHOOT STYLE KICK TO THE FACE BY MYLES TO ASSIDY! Our blonde bombshell just had the shit kicked out of her and I hope Myles didn’t damage Assidy’s face or anything. We love a pretty face here at FOX, especially one as marketable as that one! Myles drops down for the cover, but here comes Jake! Jake looks to land an elbow, but Myles rolls out of the way and Jake connects with Ass! Jake hooks the legs and goes for the cover but here comes Myles! Myles dives to break it up, but Jake moves! Myles lands on top of Assidy! What the fuck guys?! Stop that! That’s the future face of Empire and world champion!
CJ Hana: Damn, rough start for the Jaded Hearts here but Jake grabs Myles by the hair and tosses him into the corner. Jake rushes towards Myles but Myles manages to get his feet up! Jake stumbles back and Myles hops up on the ropes! Myles takes flight! MISSILE DROPKICK CONNECTS! Jake Smith is down! Myles crawls over and covers Jake!
Gavin Kirkland: ASSIDY DIVES ON TOP OF MYLES!!! She breaks up the cover and quickly grabs Myles! She’s got him by the ankle and she slams that ankle into the mat! Assidy quickly looks to grab Myles in the Brazilian heel hook submission she’s so good at, but Myles uses his free foot to kick her back and get to his feet. He swings wildly at the beautiful Queen of Hearts, and connects, landing a stiff right hand to the side of Assidy’s head. Assidy fires back with a stiff right hand of her own, and now both of these two are trading blows!
CJ Hana: Myles obviously has more power behind his shots than KASSIDY does, because that’s her name you know, but that’s never been something that’s stopped Kassidy. She fires back with a right hand, and follows it up with a kick to Myles’ shin! Kassidy with a huge European uppercut! BUT HERE COMES JAKE! JAKE WITH A DROPKICK TO MYLES’ BACK THAT KNOCKS HIM INTO KASSIDY! JAKE GRABS MYLES AND HE RAMS HIM SHOULDER FIRST INTO THE TURNBUCKLE! JAKE TURNS HIS ATTENTION TO KASSIDY AND GRABS HER BY THE HAIR! HE SCOOPS HER UP AND HE SLAMS HER INTO THE MAT! PARALYZER! THAT SPINEBUSTER CONNECTS BUT JAKE DOESN’T GO FOR THE COVER! HE GRABS MYLES AND SCOOPS HIM UP! PARALYZER TO MYLES ON TOP OF KASSIDY! JAKE RUSHES TO HIS CORNER AND HE TAGS IN JOSH! JOSH CLIMBS TO THE TOP ROPE! HE’S IN POSITION! JOSHUA NICHOLLS FLIES!!!
Gavin Kirkland: ‘BLUE VENGEANCE!!!!’ THE MOONSAULT CONNECTS ON MYLES AND KASSIDY! JOSH THROWS MYLES TO THE SIDE AND COVERS KASSIDY!!!!
CJ Hana: SIENNA JADE AND XANDER PAYNE BOTH RUSH INTO THE RING! THEY GRAB JOSH NICHOLLS AND START BEATING THE SHIT OUT OF HIM! THIS IS A TRIPLE THREAT MATCH SO TECHNICALLY THERE ARE NO RULES I GUESS! OUR SENIOR REFEREE MARTI SOLO IS TRYING TO REGAIN CONTROL RIGHT NOW, BUT SIENNA AND XANDER AREN’T HAVING IT! THEY WHIP JOSH INTO THE ROPES AND TAKE HIM DOWN WITH A CLOTHESLINE! JAKE CHARGES INTO THE RING LOOKING TO DEFEND HIS PARTNER! SIENNA CATCHES JAKE WITH A KICK TO THE GUT! XANDER GRABS JAKE AND BULLDOGS HIM TO THE MAT!
Gavin Kirkland: SIENNA TURNS HER ATTENTION TO XANDER AND SHE SLAMS HER FOOT INTO HIS NUTS! XANDER CRUMBLES TO THE MAT!!!
CJ Hana: Sienna turns her attention to Kassidy and helps her partner up. They walk over to their corner and Sienna gets out and stands back on the apron. Kassidy makes the legal tag to the Women’s World Champion now, but instead of getting into the ring, Sienna jumps down to the ground! She’s reaching under the ring… and what’s she grabbing?!
Gavin Kirkland: Sienna Jade just pulled a steel chair wrapped with barbed wire! Now how in the world did that get under there?!
CJ Hana: Sienna slips into the ring with her weapon and lies in wait. It’s Myles who is the first man standing after all the fuckery, and he sees Sienna. A little smile crosses the face of the hometown boy and he tells the champ to bring it! Sienna doesn’t need to hear anything else! She rushes towards Myles and swings the chair! Myles ducks the chair, and catches Sienna in the back with a perfectly placed kick, and that chair crashes to the mat! Myles grabs Sienna and tosses her into the corner, rushing forward!!! RUNNING KNEE STRIKE CONNECTS WITH SIENNA’S FACE! NOW MYLES IS GOING TO WORK ON THE CHAMP! THOSE MULTIPLE STRIKES HE’S HITTING HER WITH ARE CONNECTING WITH H-
Gavin Kirkland: WITH HER SURGICALLY ENHANCED CHEST! STOP THAT! GET THAT BARBARIAN OUT OF THE RING BEFORE HE POPS ONE OF SIENNA’S PRECIOUS IMPLANTS! THOSE THINGS ARE A HUGE DRAW ON THURSDAY NIGHT EMPIRE AND WE CAN’T AFFORD TO LOSE THEM!
CJ Hana: MYLES WITH A SPIN KICK TO THE BODY NOW AND HE FOLLOWS IT UP WITH ANOTHER KNEE STRIKE! MYLES GRABS SIENNA AND DRAGS HER TO THE WILDCARDS’ CORNER! HE MAKES THE TAG TO XANDER WHO HAPPILY TAKES OVER!
Gavin Kirkland: I don’t like Assidy and Sienna in this match whatsoever. These four men have no business putting their hands on our money making queens.
CJ Hana: Xander whips Sienna across the ring, and looks for a clothesline! Sienna ducks, but she is quickly cut off by Joshua! Joshua is the one who takes Sienna Jade down to the mat and now he charges at Xander Payne! Xander and Josh lock up and immediately Josh grabs Xander in a side headlock! Xander fights his way out and is able to grab Josh, throwing him into the ropes! Xander takes Josh down with a shoulder block on the rebound! He scoops Josh up and goes to the work on the arm.
Gavin Kirkland: But Josh is fighting back and he grabs Xander’s fat wrist, twisting it! Josh with an arm drag takedown and he drops down to the mat, wrapping Xander up in a headlock! Sienna Jade is back into the fray now and she immediately kicks Josh in the back of the head! Sienna jerks Josh up by the hair and sends him into the corner! She rushes forward and connects with a running knee to the face! The walrus is back to his feet now and he takes off running…. SIENNA PLEASE GET OUT OF THERE!!!!
CJ Hana: XANDER LOOKING TO SPLASH BOTH OPPONENTS BUT SIENNA DROPS DOWN TO THE MAT! XANDER CONNECTS WITH JOSHUA AND THERE IS SIENNA FROM BEHIND… ROLLING XANDER UP! SHE HAS A HANDFUL OF TIGHTS AS WELL!!!
Gavin Kirkland: MYLES WITH NO LAST NAME BACK INTO THE RING! SIENNA EATS A KICK TO THE FACE! KASSIDY HEART RUSHES IN NOW AND SHE TACKLES MYLES TO THE MAT! HERE COMES JAKE, AND ALL HELL IS BREAKING LOOSE AGAIN! KASSIDY AND JAKE WORK IN TANDEM TO GRAB MYLES AND LIFT HIM UP IN THE AIR! THEY BRING HIM DOWN WITH A SUPLEX, AND XANDER CHARGES TOWARDS THEM BOTH! JAKE AND KASSIDY DUCK HIS RUNNING CLOTHESLINE AND WHIRL AROUND! THEY HIT XANDER WITH A DOUBLE DROP KICK!!! JOSHUA COMES INTO THE PICTURE NOW AND HE GRABS KASSIDY! JOSH NAILS THE QUEEN OF HEARTS WITH AN UPPERCUT AND JAKE SENDS HER TO THE MAT WITH A LARIAT! SIENNA IS BACK UP NOW! SHE TAKES JOSH DOWN WITH A SWEET LOOKING ENZIGURI! OUR AMAZING WOMEN’S WORLD CHAMPION KICKS JAKE IN THE STOMACH AND LOOKS TO DDT HIM INTO THE MAT…
CJ Hana: BUT MYLES AND XANDER ARE BOTH ON THEIR FEET NOW! XANDER HITS SIENNA WITH A SUPERKICK WHILE MYLES HITS SIENNA WITH A KNEE STRIKE! SIENNA JADE CRUMBLES TO THE MAT AND THE WILDCARDS TURN THEIR ATTENTION TO JAKE SMITH! JAKE HAS GOTTEN BACK TO HIS FEET, AS HAS JOSH, AND NOW THESE FOUR MEN ARE SHOUTING AT EACH OTHER! THERE WERE SOME HARSH WORDS EXCHANGED BETWEEN THESE TWO TEAMS THIS WEEK, AND HERE WE GO! THEY’RE TRADING BLOWS! XANDER AND JAKE! MYLES AND JOSH!
Gavin Kirkland: BUT LOOK AT KASSIDY! KASSIDY HAS THAT BARBED WIRE WRAPPED STEEL CHAIR! SHE SLAMS IT INTO THE BACK OF JAKE SMITH! JAKE DROPS TO HIS KNEES AND XANDER SUPERKICKS THE SHIT OUT OF JAKE! JOSH SWINGS AT KASSIDY BUT SHE DRIVES THAT CHAIR INTO HIS STOMACH! MYLES LOOKS FOR A RUNNING KNEE, BUT KASSIDY DUCKS AND MYLES CONNECTS WITH JOSH! KASSIDY TAPS THE CHAIR ON THE MAT AND WAITS FOR MYLES TO TURN AROUND! XANDER GRABS KASSIDY FROM BEHIND BUT SHE ELBOWS HER WAY OUT OF HIS NASTY, FAT CLUTCHES!!! KASSIDY SWINGS THE CHAIR AT XANDER BUT MYLES KNOCKS HIM OUT OF THE WAY! MYLES TAKES THE FULL BRUNT OF THAT CHAIR SHOT AND HE’S BLEEDING NOW!
CJ Hana: The fact we just saw Myles sacrifice himself for Xander Payne :wow:
Gavin Kirkland: :wow:
CJ Hana: XANDER KICKS THAT CHAIR OUT OF KASSIDY HANDS AND SPEARS HER BACK INTO THE CORNER! XANDER IS PUTTING THE BOOTS TO THE QUEEN OF THE HEARTS AND KASSIDY IS COMPLETELY DEFENSELESS RIGHT NOW! XANDER STOMPS KASSIDY UNTIL SHE IS IN A SITTING POSITION AND HE HEADS FOR THE OPPOSITE CORNER OF THE RING! XANDER RUNS FORWARD!!! CANNONBALL INTO THE CORNER!
Gavin Kirkland: That 847 pound man just crushed our future world champion…
CJ Hana: XANDER DRAGS KASSIDY OUT OF THE CORNER AND BRINGS HER OVER TO THE BARBED WIRE CHAIR. XANDER HAS HIS HANDS IN KASSIDY’S HAIR AND HE FORCES HER FACE TO THE CHAIR!!!
Xander Payne: ULTA CAN’T SAVE YOUR FACE NOW!
Gavin Kirkland: SOMEONE STOP THIS MONSTER! DON’T SLAM HER FACE INTO THAT, XANDER!!!!
CJ Hana: JOSHUA NICHOLLS FROM BEHIND! HE LOW BLOWS XANDER, GRABS HIM BY THE WAIST, AND THROWS HIM OVERHEAD WITH A GERMAN SUPLEX!
Gavin Kirkland: DID YOU FEEL THE GROUND SHAKE?!
CJ Hana: Shut the fuck up. Xander is not Chudd.
Gavin Kirkland: Fat is fat. They’re all the same to me, mate.
CJ Hana: WHAT IS JAKE SMITH PULLING OUT FROM UNDERNEATH THE RING??
(The camera cuts to Jake, who’s of course pulling out a table.)
Gavin Kirkland: Da fuq??
CJ Hana: Uhhhh… that table is wrapped in wrapped wire and has… wait. Are those legos?? ARE LEGOS GLUED TO THAT TABLE??
Gavin Kirkland: Glass too. Is this a LEGO table?
CJ Hana: Jake is sliding that table into the ring and I don’t like this whatsoever! A barbed wire wrapped table covered in Legos and broken glass will surely be a disaster for whomever goes through it!
Gavin Kirkland: :lupe:!!!! Joshua just grabbed Sienna!
CJ Hana: SIENNA JADE HAS A TITLE DEFENSE LATER!
Gavin Kirkland: Jake sets the table up and Joshua lifts Sienna up into a powerbomb position! BUT SIENNA IS FIRING BACK WITH RIGHTS AND LEFTS! SIENNA JADE FIGHTING TO GET FREE! JOSH HAS TO LET GO AND SIENNA DROPS TO THE MAT! JAKE COMES RUSHING IN WITH A SUPERKICK!
CJ Hana: HE CONNECTS WITH JOSH! SIENNA GOT OUT OF THE WAY!!!
Jake Smith: FUCK!
Gavin Kirkland: HEY! THAT KIND OF LANGUAGE IS NOT OKAY! WHAT WOULD DRAKE KING SAY?!
CJ Hana: Well he certainly wouldn’t say the word ‘fuck’ now would he?!
Gavin Kirkland: Fuck. Fuck. Fuck.
Drake King Fans: :mjcry:
CJ Hana: MYLES JUST SLAMMED JAKE IN THE FACE WITH THE CHAIR! MYLES JUST SLAMMED JAKE IN THE FACE WITH THE CHAIR! JAKE SMITH IS DOWN!!! MYLES IS PUMMELING JAKE NOW WITH THOSE FOREARM STRIKES TO THE FACE! SIENNA WITH THE LOW BLOW TO MYLES! MYLES DROPS TO THE MAT! SIENNA GRABS HIM BY THE HAIR AND THROWS HIM ON THAT TABLE! SHE QUICKLY GOES TO THE ROPES!
Gavin Kirkland: BUT FATDERR DERR DERR PAYNE IS BACK UP! HE GRABS SIENNA BY THE HAIR AND JERKS HER TO THE MAT! XANDER DROPPING DOWN AND JUST DRIVING HIS FISTS INTO SIENNA’S FACE NOW! HE SCOOPS HER UP A-
CJ Hana: JOSHUA NICHOLLS IS BACK INTO THE MATCH! HE HITS XANDER WITH A DROPKICK TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD! JOSH GRABS SIENNA AND HE THROWS HER ON TOP OF MYLES AND THE TABLE! JOSH GOING TO THE TOP ROPE NOW! I THINK HE’S ABOUT TO FLY!!! JOSH GETS HIMSELF SET!!!

Gavin Kirkland: NOOOOOOOO! WHAT THE FUCK?!
CJ Hana: JAKE SMITH JUST CRACKED KASSIDY IN THE BACK OF THE HEAD WITH THE CHAIR! KASSIDY IS OUT COLD! JAKE GRABS JOSH AND THROWS HIM ON TOP OF KASSIDY!
Gavin Kirkland: XANDER PAYNE MAKES THE SAVE! XANDER PAYNE MAKES THE SAVE!!!!

MEANWHILE KASSIDY IS SITTING UP AND XANDER SEES THIS! HE IMMEDIATELY SLAMS HIS KNEE INTO HER TEMPLE AND I THINK SHE’S OUT GAVIN! WE BOTH KNOW KASSIDY HEART HAS A HISTORY WITH CONCUSSIONS AND I THINK XANDER JUST ENDED HER. XANDER GRABS KASSIDY WHO IS DEADWEIGHT IN HIS ARMS AND HE SETS HER UP FOR THE PAYNEKILLER!
Gavin Kirkland :noah:!!!!! SHE’S DEAD! DON’T DO THIS XANDER!
CJ Hana: THE PACKAGE PILEDRIVER CONNECTS!!!!!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
CJ Hana: Ohmygawd…
Gavin Kirkland: …..
Maria Del Rey: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… HERE ARE YOUR WINNERS AND THE NEW EAW UNIFIED TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS… MYLES AND XANDER PAYNE!!!!!
(The crowd erupts, as the look of surprise and elation crosses Xander’s face. His theme music begins to blast across the MCG.)
CJ Hana: Xander Payne just did something no one else in EAW has been able to do since August of last year back at Manifest Destiny. He knocked Kassidy Heart unconscious and pinned her for the one… two… three.
(The referee has awarded the Unified Tag Team Championship belts to Xander Payne, and Payne has gone over to Myles and helped him up out of the wreckage from that table. Xander presents Myles with one of the championships and after a moment, he extends his hand as well. There’s a lot of emotion on Myles’ face, as he comes to the realization that he just won his first ever championship in front of his hometown crowd. Myles takes Xander’s hand and the two men shake.)
Gavin Kirkland: This makeshift team of Xander Payne and Myles have somehow managed to do the unthinkable. They have dethroned the Jaded Hearts and could very well be heading into Pain for Pride as champions! I’m fucking hate them. Pretty sure the referee cocked this match up because I don’t remember Sienna ever making the tag to Kassidy to get her back into the match legally.
(As the celebration with Xander and Myles continues, Sienna has crawled over to Kassidy to check on her. Kassidy is awake but clearly has no fucking clue where she’s even at, and the referee is trying to explain to them what happened. On the outside of the ring, Jake and Josh are trying to regroup as well. They look pissed off and disappointed having come up short once again in their quest to become Unified Tag Team Champions.)
CJ Hana: I think it’s funny how once upon a time, a douchebag once referred to a match featuring Xander Payne, Myles, and the reigning Interwire Champion Drake King as a piss break. A little over two months later, all three of them now have Elite Answers Wrestling championship gold in their possession having defeated The Jaded Hearts and Malcolm Jones respectively, Elitists who are no doubt at the top of this company and will continue to remain in place as the upper echelon for however long they want they want to be here. It just goes to show you that no matter how bad you want to shit on someone and ignore them, and cast them to the side, talent is talent, and the ones who are willing to work hard, get better, and take everything in stride and as a learning experience are the ones who will always rise to the top. I hope The Revolution realize that as well. They have the heart and the dedication to truly make names for themselves here in EAW as well. As long as they keep pushing and keep improving, they’ll achieve their dreams as well.
Gavin Kirkland: The Jaded Hearts were robbed, but yeah whatever. Good job Golden Payne I guess.
CJ Hana: They’re called The Wildcards and I can’t wait to see what they do as Unified Tag Team Champions.
(The camera cuts to the ring for a final time as Xander Payne and Myles raise their championships high above their heads.)
(Grand Rampage fades to commercial break.)
(Commercial break for vegemite featuring all Australian Elitists.)
Bella Braxton: The following contest is a steel cage match! FOR THE EAW NEW BREED CHAMPIONSHIP!!!!!!
( ‘Love Sosa’ by Chief Keef’ blasts through the speaker to a mixed reaction from the crowd. SOSA Henderson steps onto the stage, making his appearance in the Melbourne Cricket Ground, ready for his upcoming match )
Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING THE CHALLENGER! From Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, weighing in at 191 pounds…. HE IS THE BULLLLETTTPROOOF…. SOOOOOOOSAAAAAAAAAA HEENNNNNNNNDDEEEEERRRRRSONNNNNNNNNNNNNN!!!
James Peters: SOSA Henderson walks down the ramp as the most confident individual in the Melbourne Cricket Ground, ready for his opportunity. However, what he is stepping into, is a steel cage and we all know, no matter what kind of cage is, you are not the same person after competing.
Rich Russillo: Even though SOSA Henderson will be putting his life on the line in the steel cage, he is also fighting for the EAW New Breed Championship. A championship, ever since he’s gotten the opportunity, that he has been dying to obtain and he has that opportunity to dethrone The Visual Prophet.
(The lights go completely black as all attention is shown to the tron. The sound of Bill Conti’s “Gonna Fly Now” plays as the infamous horns and trumpets roared through the speakers. The screen goes from black to bright light as we see The Visual Prophet running in 80s workout gear while holding two bricks in his hands through what looks like a junkyard. As a monorail next to the junkyard rides by, Viz throws a few punches as he continues jogging.)
James Peters: What is this? Is this a Rocky montage?
Rich Russillo: When did he have time to go to Philly? Is he there right now?
James Peters: Must be pre-taped! He has known “The King of Philly” was his opponent for weeks now!
(Next, the scene cuts to Viz running down a packed street as people boo him and heckle him the whole way. It’s clear he is running through Philadelphia as he tosses the bricks aside and keeps running.)
Philly Woman: I FUCKING HATE YOU! YOU ARE A FRAUD!
Philly Man: SOSA’S GONNA KILL YOU! PAID IN FULL TO YOUR FACE!
(Prophet keeps running as the music continues on. Viz licks his lips and keeps pushing as he runs past the Philly natives. One old man tries to throw an apple at Prophet but he catches it and takes one bite before throwing it at a kid who gets pelted in the face with it.)
James Peters: This man has not a shred of humility!
(The scene jump cuts to inside a sweaty gym as Viz trains inside the ring. He alternated between left and right handed one arm push-ups as ringside stood Veena Adams and Nina making sure he does them properly.)
Veena Adams: SEND THAT STREET RAT BACK TO THE GUTTER FOR STEALING MY NECKLACE!
Nina: VIZZY BAE THE CHAMP! VIZZY THE NEW ROCKY!
(Next, we see Viz going full speed on a speed bag as he bashes it back in forth like a boxer. Next, we cut to Viz in a butcher’s freezer punching the hell out of a bunch of meat.)
Veena Adams: BEAT THAT MEAT VIZ, BEAT IT!
Rich Russillo: My god somebody call Sylvester Stallone, PLEASE!
James Peters: Apollo Creed is rolling over in his cinematic grave!
(We cut to see Viz now running furiously up those famous 72 steps of the Philadelphia Museum of art as the music builds up. Prophet reaches the top and throws his hands high in the sky as the camera rotates around him. He celebrates feverishly like Rocky in his first movie as he stops and begins to gyrate his hips. Viz shadow boxes as the music crescendos and ends with complete darkness again. Until purple smoke fills the stage and the sounds of Queen’s “Another One Bites The Dust” plays and fans immediately begin booing.)
Bella Braxton: And our champion! On his way to the ring! From Detroit, Michigan…Weighing in at 240 pounds…he is the reigning New Breed Champion! THE SOVEREIGN…THE VISUAL PROPHET!!!
(Viz slowly makes his way on to the stage as he appears from out of the purple smoke wearing a pair of boxing shorts with the name “VIZZY” on the front. Prophet has on a robe similar to what Rocky wore in his first movie as his New Breed Championship sits around his waist.)
James Peters: This man knows how to make an entrance and loves to try and show up his challengers in big matches. Nothing new here, Prophet is mocking the Philadelphia roots of Sosa Henderson with that video package of him recreating the training montage of the first Rocky movie!
Rich Russillo: Don’t forget this entire boxing attire! Minus actual gloves, he at least looks ready for a big fight and Sosa is going to give it to him!
(Viz grabs a mouthpiece from his pocket and places it in his mouth as he slowly walks down the ramp.)
Rich Russillo: As he smiles and shows off to this hostile crowd, we can see even his mouthpiece is purple!
(Prophet makes his way into the cage and Sosa stands on the other side not phased at all by this mockery. Viz begins to climb the turnbuckle and do his signature pose as a golden shower of pyro rains down on to him. Prophet removes his belt from his waist and raises it high for the Australian audience to see.)
James Peters: Viz hops down from the turnbuckle and turns to Sosa as he smiles before spitting the mouthpiece up and out of the ring as his music fades out.
Rich Russillo: These two are going to tear each other limb from limb, James! Only one man can leave New Breed champion and only one man can walk into Pain for Pride with that belt in their possession!
( DING DING DING )
James Peters: The match has begun and The Visual Prophet immediately climbs up and onto the wall, trying to win this match quickly, but SOSA yanks him down, shoving him down to his feet and attempts to escape the cage.
Rich Russillo: Vizzy rolls onto his feet, running over to SOSA, grabbing his left foot and pulling him down. He shoves SOSA away from him with a determined demeanour before staring at SOSA, getting into fighting position as the crowd begins to boo him.
James Peters: It seems The Visual Prophet wants to spar with SOSA Henderson, I wouldn’t even call it a spar! SOSA Henderson, with a smirk, partially confused look on his face, gets into position before both men meet in the middle. Prophet sends a couple of jabs to SOSA, but none could connect as all attempts were blocked and dodged. Prophet now going more aggressive as SOSA backs up into the corner.
Rich Russillo: SOSA realizing where is as Prophet charges into him like a bull, getting out of the corner. Prophet quickly steps into his direction and SOSA THROWS A RIGHT!! PROPHET DUCKS THE FIRST AND SENDS HIS RIGHT HAND UPWARDS!!! AND SOSA IS DOWN!! SOSA IS OUT COLD!!!!!! THE VISUAL PROPHET CELEBRATES IN THE CAGE AS THE REFEREE CHECKS ON SOSA!! The Visual Prophet should be climbing up the walls of the cage, but he isn’t!
James Peters: SOSA JUST FLIPPED RIGHT ONTO HIS FEET!!!! VIZ TURNS AROUND!!!! SOSA WITH A RIGHT FIST THAT SENDS THE VISUAL PROPHET TO THE GROUND!!! The crowd cheering SOSA Henderson after he knocked the senses out of the New Breed Champion. SOSA immediately picks Vizzy up, Irish whipping him into the ropes. SOSA stays in the center of the ring as Vizzy rebounds into him! SOSA CHARGES INTO HIM!!
Rich Russillo: Vizzy grabs his arm, spinning him around and bringing his head down to a reverse sto! HE TWISTS AROUND!! TWISTING DDT!! NO!!!! SOSA reverses it, shoving Vizzy into the ropes! Vizzy climbs onto the ropes, getting onto the cage wall and ascending. SOSA JUMPS ONTO THE CAGE WALL, WHAT HEIGHT REACHED FROM THAT JUMP AS VIZZY FIGHTS SOSA OFF!!
James Peters: IKE TURNER SPECIAL!!! NO!!!! SOSA DODGES IT!!! AND SENDS A ROUNDHOUSE KICK TO HIS CHEST!!!! The Visual Prophet is hanging from the wall with one arm holding onto the steel chains! SOSA grabs Prophet’s head, throwing it against the cage wall. Prophet grabs SOSA’s head in response, doing the same thing! These two continue to smash heads against the cage wall!
Rich Russillo: PROPHET WITH A RIGHT HAND!!! SOSA REVERSES IT, GRABBING HIM IN A URANAGI POSITION!!! SOSA FLIPS BACKWARDS, BUT PROPHET HOLDS ONTO THE CAGE!!! SOSA FLIPS ONTO HIS FEET IN THE RING!!! It looks like SOSA was going for a Spanish fly as PROPHET SOARS!!!! DOUBLE AXE HANDLE!!
James Peters: DROPKICK!! SOSA CAUGHT HIM WITH A DROPKICK IN MID AIR!! Henderson catching the champion by surprise with the dropkick in mid-air and both men are down! SOSA begins to get up to his feet, crawling over to Prophet, picking him up slowly and leaning him in into the turnbuckles!!
Rich Russillo: SOSA catching his breath, he needs to pick up the pace in the match, tire Prophet up to the point where he can climb out of the cage without any disruption. SOSA whips Prophet into the opposite corner! Sosa follows him into the corner, but is met with a HUGE BACK ELBOW TO THE JAW!!
James Peters: Sosa holding his jaw after the shattering elbow strike as Prophet hops onto the top turnbuckle, spinning off and onto SOSA!!! JUMPING AXE HANDLE!!!! SOSA GETS OUT OF THE WAY AS PROPHET LANDS ON HIS FEET, TURNING AROUND AS SOSA JUMPS ONTO THE TURNBUCKLE! SPINNING AROUND!! TORNADO DDT!!!
Rich Russillo: Vizzy holds onto him, using his strength to lift him up into a suplex! HE RUNS INTO THE RING WITH HIM!!! SOSA REVERSES IT!! AND DRILLS HIM INTO THE CANVAS WITH A DDT!!! COVER!!
Rich Russillo: KICK OUT!! Sosa makes his way to his feet, getting The Visual Prophet up with him. He hoists him up, positioning him on the top turnbuckle. Sosa begins to climb up the turnbuckles, standing on the ropes and over Vizzy. HURRICANRANA!!! NO!!! Sosa was looking for an avalanche hurricanrana, but The Visual Prophet holds onto him. Vizzy now reaching up onto another level, going from the middle rope to the top rope! HE JUMPS OFF!!!! SOSA TURNS IT INTO A HURRICANRANA!!!
James Peters: VIZZY LANDS ON HIS FEET!!! HE LANDED ON HIS FEET!! HOW IN THE HELL!!!! SOSA IS IN THE CORNER, SHOCKED THAT VIZZY LANDED ONTO HIS FEET AFTER THAT HURRICANRANA!!! SOSA CHARGES INTO HIM!! SPEAR!!! VIZZY TOOK TOO LONG CELEBRATING!! COVER!!!
Rich Russillo: KICK OUT!! The Visual Prophet gets his shoulder up! Sosa again, catching Vizzy by surprise with that spear out of nowhere. He almost split his body in half with that spear, but it wasn’t enough to put the champion away. SOSA in the corner, sizing Vizzy up! SUPERKICK!!! IT CONNECTS!!
James Peters: Vizzy rebounds off the ropes! AND SUPERKICKS HIM IN RESPONSE!!! Viz stumbles back into Sosa! TORNADO KICK FROM HENDERSON!!!! VIZZY REELS INTO THE ROPES, GOING BACK INTO SOSA!! WHAT THE HELL!! CLOTHESLINE!!!!! SOSA TURNS VIZZY INSIDE OUT AND ALL MEN HAVE FALLEN!!!!
( The outside referee opens the cage door as both Prophet and Henderson are down )
James Peters: The referee has opened the door, giving an opportunity for one of those men to escape the cage and win this match! WHAT THE HELL IS VEENA DOING!! VEENA JUST PUSHED THE REFEREE INTO THE STEEL STAIRS!!! She is now looking under the apron sheets, bringing out chairs and throwing them into the ring!
Rich Russillo: Both men now grabbing one chair, trying to force it off one another’s hand, but both keep their hands on that one chair in particular! Veena slides a table into the ring as the crowd pops. The Prophet has a steel chair in hand, walking towards SOSA, backing him into the ropes. HE LIFTS THE STEEL CHAIR!!! AND BRINGS IT DOWN!!! BUT SOSA MOVES OUT OF THE WAY AND THE STEEL CHAIR REBOUNDS OFF THE ROPES AND INTO VIZZY’S HEAD!! The Visual Prophet staggers into the hands of Sosa, who lifts him up! AND PROPELS HIM INTO THE STEEL CHAIR PILE WITH A GERMAN SUPLEX!!!!!
James Petes: SOSA doesn’t go for a cover, he climbs up the cage, looking to win the match by escaping! BUT VIZZY IS BACK ON HIS FEET, HOPPING ONTO THE MIDDLE ROPE AND GRABBING SOSA FROM BEHIND!!! GERMAN SUPLEX OFF THE WALL!!!!!
Rich Russillo: BUT SOSA LANDS ONTO HIS FEET!!! VIZZY WITH A SPEAR!!!! SOSA IS SPEARED INTO THE PILE OF STEEL CHAIRS BY THE VISUAL PROPHET!! SOSA IS DONE!! COVER!!
James Peters: SOSA GETS HIS SHOULDER UP!!! Veena slides a brick of concrete into the steel cage, providing it to The Visual Prophet, who grabs it and slides it under the jaw of Sosa. He forces Sosa to open his mouth, resting his teeth onto the side of the brick. Oh no… NO…. CURB STOMP!!! NO!!!! SOSA WITH A BACK ELBOW!!!! HE GRABS PROPHET, BRINGING HIM DOWN INTO A REVERSE STO!!
Rich Russillo: VIZZY’S HEAD SPIKES OFf THE CONCRETE BRICK!! TWISTING DDT CONNECTS AS SOSA MAY HAVE JUST KILLED THE NEW BREED CHAMPION!! Henderson isn’t going for the cover, he rests The Visual Prophet’s jaw onto the concrete brick! HE WANTS TO FINISH THE JOB!! HE BRINGS HIS FOOT UP!!! AND BRINGS IT DOWN INTO THE BACK OF VIZZY’S HEAD!!! VIZZY IS DEAD!!!! SOSA brings The Visual Prophet, who seems to have a bloody mouth, maybe missing a couple of teeth, and pins him down for the cover!
Rich Russillo: VEENA JUST BROKE THE COVER UP!!! VEENA JUST SAVED THE VISUAL PROPHET’S NEW BREED CHAMPIONSHIP REIGN!!!!! SOSA Henderson looking at Veena with a fiery look in his eyes, angry that Veena just screwed him! Veena with a scared, anxious look on her face, I believe she’s sweating! SOSA looks like his eyes popped off his face! VEENA TRIES TO GET OUT OF THE RING!!
James Peters: BUT SOSA GRABS HER LEGS, BRINGING HER BACK INTO THE RING!!! Veena has nowhere to go as Sosa grabs the cinderblock and SMASHES IT ONTO THE BACK OF HER HEAD!!!!! GOD DAMN!!! BOTH VIZZY AND VEENA REST IN PEACE!!!
Rich Russillo: SOSA now attempting to do the curb stomp on Veena, the same thing that made The Visual Prophet perish in this match! SOSA HAS VEENA ON THE CINDER BLOCK!! NO! NO! NO! NO!!!! HE LIFTS HIS FOOT UP!!! VEENA ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY AND SLIDES OUT OF THE RING!!
James Peters: Veena just saved her life as she breathes heavily near the barricade with bruises all over her face. That cinder block into the face did a toll on her! The Visual Prophet is still laid out on the canvas and SOSA stares at Veena with a smirk on his face.
Veena Adams (off mic): COME MESS WITH ME OVER HERE
SOSA Henderson (off mic): I won’t need to.
Rich Russillo: ITS SERENA BENNETT!!!!! SHE SPEARS VEENA ADAMS THROUGH THE BARRICADE!! OH MY GOD!!!!! SOSA HENDERSON JUST CALLED THE SHOTS AND VEENA ADAMS IS NOW ERASED FROM THIS MATCH!!!!
James Peters: SOSA with a bright smile on his face, turning around! LOW BLOW!!!!! LOW BLOW FROM THE VISUAL PROPHET!!!!! SOSA gets down to his knees, leaning on the legs of the resurrected Visual Prophet. The Visual Prophets making SOSA Henderson pay after what he and Serena Bennett did to Veena Adams!
Rich Russillo: The Prophet grabs Sosa’s jaw, bringing it up and kicking underneath the belt for the second time!!!! SOSA IS IN PAIN AND PROPHET IS LAUGHING AT HIM!!! A smile turned into a face of agony, The Visual Prophet picks him back up, turning him around and kneeling down!!! AND LOW BLOWS SOSA FOR THE THIRD TIME!!!!
James Peters: The Visual Prophet now picks SOSA up! HE HOISTS HIM IN A MILITARY PRESS!!! AND TOSSES HIM INTO THE THE STEEL CAGE WALLS!!!! SOSA COLLIDES INTO THE WALLS, HIS FLESH GRINDING AGAINST THE CHAINS AS HE SLIDES DOWN!!! The Visual Prophet with a unique, yet effective strategy, leaving SOSA to a point where it is improbable to get up and stop The Visual Prophet!
Rich Russillo: SOSA Henderson has yet to move as The Visual Prophet walks over to the opposite direction, getting as far as possible from Henderson and begins to climb up the wall! The Visual Prophet nonchalantly ascending the wall of the steel cage, taking his time as Henderson is out cold!
James Peters: The Visual Prophet halfway up the wall as Henderson just moved a muscle! How in the hell is he still breathing?! The Prophet is clueless on what Henderson is doing! SOSA slowly rolls under the bottom rope, beginning to gingerly crawl towards The Visual Prophet’s direction! SOSA needs to fasten the pace, he is barely halfway across the ring while Vizzy is three quarters up the wall!
Rich Russillo: The Visual Prophet being slower than usual, he wants to savour this moment for as long as possible, but has no idea on what seeks below him! SOSA Henderson is on his feet! The Prophet finally looks below him and sees SOSA Henderson, a bloodied face who is thirsty for his championship gold!
James Peters: The Prophet with a look on his face as if he just shit his pants! SOSA FASTLY CLIMBS UP THE WALL, FASTER THAN EVER AS THE PROPHET HYPERVENTILATES AT THE TOP, NERVOUS AS HE CLIMBS OVER THE TOP BEAMS!!!
Rich Russillo: BUT SOSA BEAT HIM TO IT, GRABBING HIS LEGS!!!! The Prophet should’ve never taken his time as SOSA Henderson has now recovered!! Vizzy kicks SOSA’s hands away, grinding his body against the top of the steel cage, making his way to the corner. SOSA climbs the wall, moving to the left, meeting PROPHET IN THE CORNER!!!
James Peters: Both men switch sides, SOSA on the top of the cage and Vizzy below him. Vizzy sending jabs, but it does nothing to affect SOSA Henderson. SOSA WITH A ROUNDHOUSE KICK TO THE EAR OF VIZZY!!! The Visual Prophet is out cold, hanging from the top of the steel cage! SOSA GETS UP TO HIS FEET, STANDING ATOP THE CAGE!!
Rich Russillo: HE BEGINS TO ROTATE HIS HIPS, GYRATING AND MOCKING THE EAW NEW BREED CHAMPION!!!!! He begins to lean down, grabbing Vizzy’s face! If I was him, I would’ve jumped off the cage and win the championship already! BUT HE IS LOOKING TO FINISH THE JOB FOR THE SECOND TIME!!
James Peters: THE VISUAL PROPHET SITS UP, GRABBING THE LEFT ARM OF SOSA HENDERSON!!! NO NO NO NO NO!!! HE PULLS IT DOWN!!!! MAMMMMMMAA MIAAAAA!!! HOLY SHIT!!!!! SOSA HENDERSON JUST PLUMMETED TO HIS DEATH OFF THE STEEL CAGE, COURTESY OF THE NEW BREED SOVEREIGN!!
Rich Russillo: The Visual Prophet hangs in a tree of woe from the top of the steel cage, looking down at the unconscious SOSA Henderson. He sits up, climbing to the top! THE VISUAL PROPHET IS GOING TO RETAIN HIS CHAMPIONSHIP REIGN!! But, The Visual Prophet isn’t looking to escape the cage, he is looking to defeat SOSA Henderson by pinfall, standing atop and overlooking SOSA! HE POSES AT THE TOP!!! HE SOARS!!!!! BOWWWW TOOO THE HEART!!! SOSA ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY!!!
James Peters: NOBODY HOME AND THE PROPHET GOES CRASH LANDING INTO THE CANVAS!!!! FUCK! BOTH OF THESE MEN IN THE LAST 5 MINUTES HAS PLUMMETED TO THEIR DEATH OFF THE TOP OF THE STEEL CAGE!!! I AM SURPRISED SOSA HENDERSON HAD THE COURAGE TO ROLL OUT OF THE WAY!!!!
Rich Russillo: Sosa Henderson and The Visual Prophet scattered around the squared circle, unconscious as they haven’t moved a muscle. SOSA begins to move, crawling towards the door! The referee opens the door as SOSA gets closer to it. The Visual Prophet has yet to move! COME ON SOSA!!!!
James Peters: The Visual Prophet has to get up if he wants to retain his championship! SOSA Henderson is a fingertip away from the door! COME ON VIZZY, GET YOUR ASS UP!!!! SOSA NOW HAS A GRIP ON THE APRON!! SHIT!
Rich Russillo: THE VISUAL PROPHET STILL HASN’T MOVED YET!! SOSA HENDERSON SLIDES OUT OF THE RING!!!
( DING DING DING )
( ‘Love Sosa’ by Chief Keef blares throughout the arena to a huge pop. SOSA Henderson uses the steel chairs to get up to his feet, shocked that he just escaped the steel cage from The Visual Prophet )
Bella Braxton: HERE IS YOUR WINNER… AAAANNNNNDDDDD NEEEWWWWWWWWWWW EAW NEW BREED CHAMPION………… SOOOOOOOOOSSSSAAAAAAAAA HENNNNNNNNDEERRRRSONNN!!!
James Peters: SOSA Henderson has done it! SOSA Henderson has become the EAW New Breed Champion after one of the most brutal New Breed matches in history! Henderson just solved the puzzle to the Visual Prophet’s dominance and he did it in fashion!
Rich Russillo: I am still in shock Sosa Henderson was able to get up on his feet after receiving three low blows in a row and get out of the way after taking a fall from the top of the steel cage. SOSA Henderson fought against all odds and there not one thing that says he does not deserves the EAW New Breed Championship.
James Peters: The Visual Prophet is still lying in the ring, looking up at the lights of the Melbourne Cricket Ground as we have a new EAW New Breed Champion crowned in Melbourne, Australia. Congratulations to SOSA Henderson!

(“Blackout” by Company Flow starts playing and immediately the crowd reacts with pure hatred. After a few seconds, Lethal Consequences walks out onto the stage, and looks at all the booing fans with a grin on his face, before proceeding to make his way down the ramp.)
Bella Braxton: Making his way to the ring.. From Oakland, California.. Weighing in at 230 pounds… LEEEETTHALLLL CCOOOONNSEQQUUEENCESSS!!!
James Peters: Lethal Consequences got this opportunity after defeating Prince of Phenomenal at Tempest! Although I can’t really say he defeated him, as much as he did steal a victory from POP!
Rich Russillo: Stole the victory? Let’s get this straight Lethal Consequences dominated and decimated Prince of Phenomenal to earn a shot at this championship! This man is a seasoned vet and one of the most decorated performers to ever grace this company. Debuting all the way back 11 years ago at Midsummer Massacre 2008, LC has been through a rollercoaster of a career, from the top of the world to having the whole world doubting his abilities. It takes a lot of perseverance to once again reach the level he has to be contending for a world championship at this point in his career and I must say I’m proud of the Blue Moon!
James Peters: Slob the old man up all you want Rich, he’s a guest at House Reigner tonight.
Rich Russillo: Yeah whatever you Mark. You’re sounding a lot like those neckbeards that tried to destroy his legacy over the years. You, that drunk Irishman, and that legacy manufacturing Alabama hick can all kiss LC’s two Hall of Fame rings and eat your hearts out to this moment. LC overcame all of the adversity in his career and nobody can take that away from him.
“I GOT, YOU WANT.
IT’S JUST, DON’T STOP.
I GOT, YOU WANT.
IT’S JUST, DON’T STOP.”
“THIS IS ENTERTAINMENT.
LIES ARE ENTERTAINMENT.
YOU ARE DOWN ON YOUR KNEES…
BEGGING ME FOR MORE! ”
(The hook for the song “Don’t Stop” by InnerPartySystem rips through the sound system as Noah Reigner walks out onto the stage along with Evelyn Ridley. Noah stops on top of the ramp, his eyes scanning the crowd as the verses of the song begin to take over.)
Bella Braxton: And his opponent.. Accompanied by Evelyn Ridley.. From Seattle, Washington.. Weighing in at 184 pounds.. He is the World Heavyweight Champion.. NNNNOOOAAAAHHHHHH RRRRRREEEEIIIIGGGNNNEERRRRR!!!!
James Peters: Noah Reigner has been on top of the Voltage mountain ever since he cashed in his Cash in The Vault briefcase on Impact, just after #8Reignz! Since then Noah had an impressive victory against Xander Payne at Tempest, where he’d manage to defeat the Paynekiller on his road to Pain for Pride!
Rich Russillo: You’re right about that, but Lethal Consequences is not Xander Payne. He’s been here for a long time, and if anyone knows how to do whatever it takes to win, it’s LC!
James Peters: You’re right, but if Noah could do what he said he would and drop LC with that Killshot, Noah would be on track to walk into Pain for Pride as champion.
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
James Peters: And here it is! The Voltage main event! World Heavyweight Championship, Noah Reigner versus Lethal Consequences! The two men standing in their respective corners, clearly taking their time as LC has a smirk on his face as always, leaning on the turnbuckles as Noah stares a hole straight through him. The two slowly back out of their corners, and they now engage in a collar and elbow tie up! LC is able to overpower Noah quite easily as he pushes him into the corner. The referee now backing LC away from Noah, BUT LC WITH A CHEAP SHOT TO THE FACE!
Rich Russillo: LC with a cheeky grin as Noah holds the side of his face, BUT NOAH HITS A FOREARM, CONNECTING WITH LC’S JAW! LC now firing back with a forearm of his own! Noah now with a kick to the midsection, and now he throws LC into the corner! Noah now with punch after punch, all hitting LC right in his face, but LC pushes Noah away, AND THERE’S A HUGE CLOTHESLINE DROPPING THE CHAMPION! LC now walking towards Noah, and now he puts the champ in a rear chinlock! Noah’s struggling to breathe as Noah locks in the hold as tight as possible!
James Peters: Noah’s reaching out for those ropes but there’s no chance of him grabbing them from the middle of the ring! But wait, Noah makes it to one knee! Now the other! Noah has made it back to his feet, and now he drives two hard elbows into the midsection of LC! Noah now with an irish whip into the ropes! KILLSHOT! NO! LC CAUGHT THE FOOT OF NOAH AND HE DROPS HIM DOWN! SLINGSHOT INTO THE TURNBUCKLES! NOAH JUST GOT THROWN FACE FIRST INTO THE TURNBUCKLES! LC now getting back to his feet as he begins to charge towards Noah! CLOTHESLINE IN THE CORNER! LC now with an irish whip into the opposite corner as he charges in, BUT NOAH GETS OUT OF THE WAY, AND HE DROPS LC WITH A JUMPING NECKBREAKER! Noah now going for the first cover of the match!
Rich Russillo: And LC kicks out before the one count! Noah now looking down at LC who’s holding his neck, before dragging him to his feet for an irish whip into the ropes! LC attempts to hit a clothesline but Noah ducks under it before bouncing off the ropes himself, HITTING A JUMPING KNEE STRIKE! LC falls back into the ropes, BUT THIS TIME HE HITS THE CLOTHESLINE AS HE BOUNCES OFF OF THEM! Noah just got floored by that huge clothesline, meanwhile LC is backed into the corner holding his jaw! Noah crawling into the opposite corner now, but LC doesn’t give him any time to recover as he charges in! EUROPEAN UPPERCUT! LC doesn’t stop there as he sends Noah into the other corner, but this time he hits Noah with a knife edge chop! LC now sending Noah into the ropes once more, BUT THERE’S A DROPKICK BY NOAH!
James Peters: LC now rolling out of the ring as Noah tries to catch his breath, but I don’t think Noah wants to end it there! Noah, with a crazed look in his eyes! He bounces off of the ropes, SUICIDE DIVE! NOAH JUST DROPPED LC WITH A SUICIDE DIVE, BUT NOAH RUNS BACK INTO THE RING, AND IT LOOKS LIKE NOAH WANTS TO GO FOR A SECOND! Noah running the ropes once more, AND HE GETS IT! SECOND SUICIDE DIVE, BUT BOTH MEN ARE OUT AT RINGSIDE! Noah is able to make it to his feet though, and he rolls LC back into the ring, while crawling up onto the apron himself! Noah now climbing up to the top rope, AND HE DIVES! DIVING SENTON BY NOAH! NOAH NOW WITH THE COVER TO PUT LC AWAY!
James Peters: No, LC kicks out once again! Noah this time is visibly more frustrated as LC managed to kick out! Noah now dragging LC to his feet, and he’s dragging him up to the top rope! Noah following behind as grabs onto LC, and it looks like he’s going for a superplex! LC’s trying to fight out of it though! Multiple punches to the midsection, AND HE PUSHED NOAH OFF THE TURNBUCKLES! BUT NOAH LANDS ON HIS FEET! NOAH LANDED ON HIS FEET AND NOW HE RUNS BACK UP THE TURNBUCKLES! OH MY GOD! SUPERPLEX! BUT HE’S ROLLING THROUGH, HE’S NOT DONE YET!
Rich Russillo: THE HOUSE E- NO! LC MANAGED TO SLIP BEHIND NOAH! THE FLASHBACK! THE SLEEPER SLAM BACKBREAKER CONNECTS AND LC NOW FALLS INTO THE COVER! THIS COULD BE IT FOR NOAH’S TITLE REIGN!
Rich Russillo: NOAH GETS THE SHOULDER UP! LC can’t believe what he’s seeing! Noah just kicked out, but what I’m more surprised about is that LC had the power to hit the Flashback after that Superplex, but he’s feeling the effects of it now as he has to take a minute to recover. LC backing up into the corner, and I don’t know if he’s trying to catch his breath, or just waiting for Noah to get to his feet!
James Peters: I’d assume he’s trying to take time to recover, but it doesn’t matter now as LC now drags LC up to his feet, and it looks like he has something in mind! GO TO JAPA- NO! NOAH HE CAUGHT THE LEG, AND NOW HE LIFTS HIM UP! THE HARD GOODBYE! NOAH JUST HIT THE HARD GOODBYE!
Rich Russillo: BUT NOAH’S SPENT! HE CAN’T MAKE IT TO THE COVER, AND THE REFEREE IS FORCED TO START THE TEN COUNT! IF NEITHER MAN GETS UP BEFORE TEN, THIS WILL END IN A NO CONTEST!
Rich Russillo: NOAH JUST POPPED BACK ONTO HIS FEET! THIS MATCH IS STILL ON! AND THERE’S A RUNNING SENTON BY THE CHAMPION! NOAH NOW WITH THE COVER TO PUT LC AWAY!
Rich Russillo: LC GOT HIS SHOULDER UP!
James Peters: Noah can’t believe it! LC somehow managed to survive, but that may be because of how long it took for Noah to capitalize from the Hard Goodbye! Noah now picking LC up again, but LC! He’s trying to get out of it, AND HE DOES, BUT NOAH SENDS HIM OUT OF THE RING WITH A CLOTHESLINE! LC manages to get to his feet, BUT NOAH WITH A SLINGSHOT CROSSBODY! Noah isn’t done yet, as he drags LC, AND THROWS HIM INTO THE RING POST! Noah now throwing LC back into the ring, and he climbs onto the apron, waiting for him to get to his feet! SLINGSHOT SPEA-NO! LC CAUGHT NOAH! AND HE HITS A HUGE SUPLEX, RATTLING HIS SPINE! Now it’s Noah forced to roll out the ring on the other side, meanwhile Evelyn is making sure he’s okay! LC now joining Noah outside the ring, and kicks the champion in the midsection!
Rich Russillo: LC now throwing Noah into the steel steps! He goes over to continue his attack, BUT EVELYN GRABS HIS ARM! Evelyn could be making a mistake here as LC turns around to her, AND LC JUST PUNCHED EVELYN IN THE FACE! EVELYN DROPPED TO THE GROUND AND SHE MAY BE KNOCKED OUT AS LC NOW ROLLS NOAH INTO THE RING! LC is in complete control over this match now as Noah’s out of it after getting thrown into those steel steps. LC holding Noah’s face up by his hair, and you can see how determined LC is to win this match as he lifts him up! ROW’S PEDA-NO! ROLL UP BY NOAH! TO RETAIN THE TITLE!
Rich Russillo: KICK OUT! BOTH MEN GET TO THEIR FEET, AND NOW THEY BEGIN TO BRAWL! BOTH MEN TRADING AS MANY FOREARMS AS THEY CAN, CONNECTING WITH EACH OTHER EACH TIME! NOAH NOW WITH A KICK TO THE MIDSECTION, AND NOW HE RUNS THE ROPES! NO, RIGHT INTO A ROLL UP BY LC!
Rich Russillo: NOAH KICKS OUT, AND LC IMMEDIATELY LOOKS FOR A BIG BOOT BUT NOAH GETS OUT OF THE WAY!
James Peters: Noah now looking for a German Suplex but LC catches him with an elbow to the jaw! Noah now stumbling back as Noah rolls him up agai- NO! NOAH TURNS IT AROUND INTO A ROLL UP OF HIS OWN!
Rich Russillo: LC KICKS OUT! BOTH MEN SCRAMBLE TO THEIR FEET AND NOAH CHARGES RIGHT AT HIM! KILLSHO- WAIT! NO! THE REFEREE! LC JUST SENT NOAH RIGHT INTO THE REFEREE! THE REFEREE IS OUT, AND SO IS NOAH! LC JUST FLOORED NOAH, AND LOOK, IT’S THE HALL OF FAME RINGS! LC HAS USED THOSE TO DEFEAT HIS OPPONENTS IN THE PAST, MOST RECENTLY DARYL KINKADE, AND NOW IT LOOKS LIKE HE’S GOING TO DO IT TO WIN THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP!
James Peters: LC lifting Noah up as the referee starts to stir! ACID REIGN! THAT’S IT! THE COVER NOW BY LC! THE REFEREE IS CRAWLING INTO POSITION! THERE HE IS!
James Peters: NOAH GOT THE SHOULDER UP! NOAH IS STILL IN THIS MATCH AND LC CAN’T BELIEVE IT! This match should be over by now, but somehow, even with the hall of fame rings, even with the acid reign, Noah managed to stay in this match! LC looking at the referee now, WHAT! LC JUST FLOORED THE REFEREE! WHAT IS HE DOING!? LC throwing Noah outside the ring, and it looks like, A STEEL CHAIR! LC JUST PULLED OUT A STEEL CHAIR FROM UNDER THE RING, AND HE JUST SMASHED IT OVER THE BACK OF THE ASSAULT RIFLE! LC now throwing Noah into the barricade! There’s no way Noah can come back from this! LC NOW THROWING NOAH FACE FIRST INTO THE RING POST! NOAH’S GOT A BLOODY NOSE NOW, AND LC ISN’T FINISHED YET AS HE REVEALS THE HALL OF FAME RINGS ONCE AGAIN, AND HE NOW BEGINS TO JUST BASH IN THE FACE OF NOAH! THIS IS TOO MUCH!
Rich Russillo: And it looks like LC is realizing that the referee is once again making it back to his feet! LC now rolling Noah back in the ring, and there’s the cover!
Rich Russillo: NOAH!! HOW!!?? HE GOT THE SHOULDER UP!! AFTER EVERYTHING LC JUST DID TO HIM!! LC can’t believe his eyes! This match is still on, and now LC is covering him again!
Rich Russillo: AND NOAH KICKS OUT! LC is livid! If that didn’t put Noah away, then what will?
James Peters: It looks like we’re about to find out as LC begins to drag Noah to the top rope. LC, oh no. It looks like he’s going to try the Acid Reign from the top rope! BUT NOAH PUSHES HIM OFF! NOAH JUST SENT LC CRASHING INTO THE MAT, BUT CAN NOAH CAPITALIZE!? He’s getting into position! FROG SPLASH BY NOAH! NOAH JUST HIT A HUGE FROG SPLASH BUT CAN HE COVER HIM!? YES, HE DOES IT! THE COVER TO RETAIN THE TITLE!
Rich Russillo: LC IS STILL IN IT! This is insane! The fact that these two are still able to go in this match is just amazing! Noah now backing up into the corner though, and it looks like this just might be the end! Noah urging for LC to get to his feet, and as he slowly does The Assault Rifle charges in! KI- NO! ACID REIGN BY LC! HE HIT THE ACID REIGN! I SAID THIS WOULD BE THE END BUT I DIDN’T THINK IT WOULD BE LIKE THAT! THE COVER NOW BY LC!
James Peters: EVELYN JUST PULLED THE REFEREE OUT OF THE RING! THAT WAS PROBABLY LC’S BEST CHANCE OF WINNING, AND EVELYN JUST TOOK IT FROM HIM!
Rich Russillo: That was payback for what LC did to her earlier in the match! But was that a good idea? You can see it in LC’s eyes! He’s furiou-
James Peters: ACID REIGN! LC JUST DROPPED EVELYN ONCE MORE, BUT I DON’T THINK SHE’S GETTING BACK UP THIS TIME!
Rich Russillo: And once again Noah can’t do anything about it, as he’s barely managing to even get to his feet as LC gets into the rin- THE KILLSHOT! NOAH, HOW!? WITH A SUDDEN BURST OF ENERGY, NOAH JUST HIT THE KILLSHOT ON LC BEFORE HE COULD EVEN GET ALL THE WAY INTO THE RING, AND NOW IT’S BOTH EVELYN AND LETHAL CONSEQUENCES THAT ARE LAID OUT! But is Noah going to end this match with a count out?
James Peters: I don’t think Noah has a choice anymore! Neither man are able to get to their feet, but if LC can’t get back in the ring before ten, then this match is over for him, and so are his dreams of becoming world champion!
Rich Russillo: LC is stirring! Can he make it!?
Rich Russillo: HE MADE IT! LC MADE IT BACK INTO THE RING JUST BEFORE THE TEN COUNT! Both men now are just grasping onto anything possible to help them get to their feet! Of course Noah able to do so first, with LC still rocked after that Killshot. Noah now slowly making his way towards LC, and he hits a huge right hand connecting with his jaw! LC just got sent staggering into the corner, but he quickly fires back with a right hand of his own! Noah now firing back with a forearm, and a second, and a third, dropping LC down to a knee!
James Peters: Noah tries to grab LC, but LC hits a well placed punch right in the midsection! Noah now with a kick to LC’s midsection, AND HE LIFTS HIM UP! NO, LC GETS BEHIND HIM, AND TURNS NOAH AROUND! ROWS PEDAL! THE REVERSE STO CONNECTS! LC COVERS NOAH!
James Peters: AND NOAH ONCE AGAIN GETS THE SHOULDER UP, BUT LC ISN’T DONE! HE LIFTS NOAH UP! AND THERE’S A SECOND FLASHBACK! LC NOW GOING FOR THE COVER ONCE MORE! THIS TIME IT MIGHT BE OVER!
James Peters: NO! HOW MUCH CAN ONE MAN TAKE!? NOAH HAS KICKED OUT OF JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING LC HAS GIVEN TO HIM, BUT WHAT’S LEFT!? LC grabbing Noah’s arm to drag him to his feet- BUT WAIT! NOAH PULLS LC DOWN! RIGHT INTO THE CHICKENWING! NOAH HAS THE CROSSFACE CHICKENWING APPLIED, AND HE LOCKS IN THE BODY SCISSORS! THIS MAY BE IT FOR LC! THE SAME WAY NOAH DEFEATED XANDER PAYNE AT TEMPEST! HE’S LOOKING TO END LC RIGHT HERE!
Rich Russillo: LC reaching out to the ropes, but they’re in the center of the ring! At this rate, LC might just have to tap out!
James Peters: Forget tapping out, LC looks like he’s fading! This could be it! The referee lifting up his hand, and there’s no response! He lifts it up once more, no response! This might be it! He lifts it up again..
Rich Russillo: LC IS STILL ALIVE! LC IS FIGHTING FOR HIS LIFE, BUT NOAH STILL WON’T LET GO! BUT LOOK, LC TRYING TO TURN AROUND, AND HE’S PULLING HIMSELF ONTO A KNEE! IT LOOKS LIKE HE’S TRYING TO STAND WITH NOAH ON HIS BACK, AND HE DOES IT! NOAH HAS THE HOLD APPLIED STILL, BUT LC SOMEHOW MANAGED TO GET TO HIS FEET, AND NOW HE RAMS NOAH INTO THE TURNBUCKLES, FINALLY FREEING HIMSELF!
James Peters: The two men now rolling out of the corner, and LC is trying to get the oxygen back in him after being in that submission so long! Meanwhile Noah looks like he’s out of it after being slammed into the turnbuckles so hard! LC, manages to get to his feet now, meanwhile Noah is hanging across the middle rope, and I don’t think he even knows where he is! Nonetheless, LC IS CHARGING TOWARDS HIM! 619! LC CONNECTS WITH THE 619 AND NOW HE MAKES HIS WAY TO THE TOP ROPE AS NOAH STUMBLES RIGHT INTO HIS SIGHTS! DIVING CROSSBODY BY LC! NO! NOAH ROLLS THROUGH, INTO A PIN!
Rich Russillo: LC KICKS OUT, AND THE TWO ONCE AGAIN QUICKLY GET TO THEIR FEET! NOAH GOES FOR A KICK TO THE MIDSECTION, BUT LC CATCHES HIS LEG! Noah though, WITH A STEP UP ENZUIGIRI! LC falling into the ropes now, AND HE REBOUNDS OFF OF IT WITH A ROLLING WHEEL KICK! Now it’s Noah, WHO FIRES BACK WITH A JUMPING KNEE STRIKE! AND LC IS DOWN TO ONE KNEE AS NOAH BOUNCES OFF THE ROPES, SHINING WIZARD!
James Peters: Noah dragging LC to his feet now, and he puts him into a fireman’s carry, but still won’t give in! Multiple elbows to the jaw, and LC somehow manages to escape! LC now grabbing Noah from behind! GERMAN SUPLEX! This match has been insane thus far, but it looks like things may be coming to a close very soon! LC grabs Noah and lifts him into a fireman’s carry of his own- BUT NOAH SLIPS BEHIND BEFORE DELIVERING A GERMAN SUPLEX OF HIS OWN, AND NOW IT’S NOAH LOOKING TO END THIS MATCH! HE’S SETTING UP FOR IT ONCE MORE! NOAH RUNS IN! KILLSHO-
Rich Russillo: NOAH JUST GOT FLOORED WITH A BIG BOOT BY LC! ONCE AGAIN LC WAS ABLE TO COUNTER THE KILLSHOT, AND NOW LC LIFTS NOAH UP, FOR A SECOND ROWS PEDAL! BUT LC ISN’T GOING FOR THE COVER! IT LOOKS LIKE HE WANTS TO MAKE SURE NOAH IS DOWN FOR GOOD!
James Peters: But how? Noah has kicked out of every possible! Everything LC has gave to him, Noah has survived! So what more is left? What more can LC do to put Noah down and win the World Heavyweight Championship?
Rich Russillo: Oh no, I think I know what! LC IS DRAGGING NOAH TO HIS FEET! AND HE LIFTS HIM UP INTO A FIREMAN’S CARRY ONE MORE TIME! AND THIS TIME EVELYN ISN’T THERE TO SAVE NOAH! IF THIS LC’S WAY WE COULD BE SEEING A NEW CHAMPION!
James Peters: LETHAL CONSEQUENCES HAS NOAH IN POSITION!! HE IS GOING TO TRY AND FINISH THIS MATCH WITH GO TO JAPAN!!! HE ALREADY FAILED AT KEEPING NOAH DOWN WITH HIS HALL OF FAME LOADED FIST SHOT!!!
Rich Russillo: … I don’t think he’s calling it that.
James Peters: IT DOESN’T MATTER BECAUSE NOAH REIGNER IS ABOUT TO LOSE THE WORLD HEAVYWEI-
Rich Russillo: JAMES! JAMES! JAMES! LOOK WHO IT IS!! LOOK WHO THE FUCK IT IS!!! HOLY SHIT!!
James Peters: IMPACT SLIDES INTO THE RING AND HE BARRELS INTO LETHAL CONSEQUENCES!!! HE TAKES LC OUT AND HE’S THROWING HIM OUT OF THE RING!!! LC DOESN’T KNOW WHAT THE HELL JUST HAPPENED! HE HAD NOAH REIGNER IN POSITION FOR GTJ!!!
Rich Russillo: NOAH HAS ROLLED TO THE ROPES AND IS PULLING HIMSELF UP! HE’S BEEN THROUGH HELL AND BACK TONIGHT! HE TURNS AROUND AND HE SEES IMPACT! OH MY GOD! THESE TWO MEN HAVE LOCKED EYES WITH ONE ANOTHER!
James Peters: KILL SHOT! KILL SHOT!!
Rich Russillo: :damn:
James Peters: :damn:
Rich Russillo: IMPACT JUST LAID NOAH OUT WITH THE KILL SHOT! THE MAN’S FAMILY IS HERE WATCHING!!!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
James Peters: THE REFEREE IS CALLING FOR THE BELL BUT WHAT DOES IT MATTER?? IMPACT MAY HAVE JUST COST LETHAL CONSEQUENCES THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP!!
Rich Russillo: IMPACT GRABS NOAH AND THROWS HIM OUT OF THE RING! HE’S DOWN ON THE GROUND NOW AND HE’S GOT THE CHAMPION!! IMPACT GRABS NOAH AND THROWS HIM INTO THE STEEL RING STEPS!!
(Impact looks down at Noah and the damage that he’s done and smirks. The 8-time World Champion looks over at LC next, and LC doesn’t even know what to think. Impact just shrugs at his Generation Genesis partner and heads over to Bella Braxton and grabs the microphone. Impact heads back over to Noah and stands over his fallen body.)
Impact: Guess what? I’m back, bitch, and I’m coming back for what’s mine. You and me, Noah, Pain for Pride for the World Heavyweight Championship, bitch. I don’t give a fuck if someone from Voltage wins Grand Rampage later. They can take their goddamn ass to Dynasty or Showdown, and challenge for that world championship. My road to Pain for Pride is set, and Noah… you’re dead.
(Impact drops the mic and “Can I Live” by Jay-Z begins blasting across the PA system. The fans inside MCG are losing their minds over the Hall of Famer’s announcement.)
James Peters: DID HE JUST MAKE HIS OWN MATCH FOR PAIN FOR PRIDE??
Rich Russillo: I… wow. I think he did…
James Peters: Jesus.
Rich Russillo: We still have Grand Rampage… like Voltage has a damn good chance of winning that match….
James Peter: Shook.
(Grand Rampage fades to commercial break.)
(Commercial for PETA featuring Malcolm Jones advocating against the abuse of dogs.)
(“Odee” by A Boogie hits the sound system as Chris Elite comes out with Big Mike to a massive cheer. Chris wears his signature pink mink as he does on the stage.)
Eve: IS IT REALLY TIME?!? LADIES AND GENTLEMEN IT IS SATURDAY NIGHT AND IT IS TIME FOR THE SATURDAY NIGHT SHOWDOWN EAW CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH!!!!
Deadprez: Chris Elite is coming here after earning his way into this already massive matchup by beating EAW Champion, Ahren Fournier, last week on Showdown! You have to think his confidence is riding high as he steps into tonight. Two weeks ago he was being asked to qualify for the Grand Rampage, and now he’s walking into the World Championship match having paved his way!
Eve: The power of a Gawd. Truly.
(Chris takes off his mink and climbs up into the ring as his music is replaced by “Pray For Em” by Meek Mill and Malcolm Jones walls out onto the stage to boos from the crowd.)
Eve: And here comes Chris Elite’s former tag partner! Malcolm Jones, competing tonight on his birthday no less, has had a meteoric rise since his return to EAW after leaving for REVOLT! Pro Combat! This year’s King of Elite now stands with a chance to become a triple crown champion this season alone!
Deadprez: Unified Tag Champion with Astraea Jordan, Interwire Champion, and a chance to become the EAW Champion here tonight! It’s been a massive rise to the top but don’t think that finishing the task is gonna be all that easy! He’s got to get by three of the very best Showdown and all of EAW has to offer here!
(Malcolm climbs up into the ring as “Ambitionz Az a Ridah” by Tupac hits and TLA rolls out to the ring in his lowrider to massive cheers.)
Deadprez: Case in point! TLA has been the man who’s fought to reach the top for years! Even when he was cast out from EAW in the past he found his way back, from the REVOLT! Middleweight Champion to the Openweight Championship, and now the EAW Championship match!
Eve: Few in the history of this company have had the popularity and fan support that TLA has had! You have to wonder if that’s going to be a factor here as he tries one more time to reach the top of the mountain.
(TLA exits the low rider and slides into the ring, posing briefly for the crowd before “Starboi” by The Weeknd hits and Ahren Fournier walks out with Kassidy Heart, the EAW Championship around his waist. They also wear their matching fur coats.)
Eve: And here comes the Champion! Accompanied by his associate, Ahren Fournier has been a force all his own lately! Some would argue against his reign, many fans claiming he wants to hold the title hostage for the sake of the payout having the belt brings him!
(Ahren and Kassidy make their way down. Ahren pauses next to the low rider and removes his sunglasses, using the corner of them to scratch the pain of TLA’s car. Ahren grins as the referee holds TLA back.)
Deadprez: Ahren is the most naturally gifted man to step into an EAW ring! He has earned the right to demand his time be valued properly!
Eve: Have you googled “Fournier” recently?
(Ahren removes his fur coat and hands it to Kassidy before climbing up and into the ring. Gina Romano steps up with a microphone in hand.)
Gina Romano: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN! THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS A FATAL FOUR WAY MATCH FOR THE EAW CHAMPIONSHIP!!!
Gina Romano: Introducing first… from Brooklyn, New York, weighing in at 210 pounds… he is Gawd Given Greatness… CHRRRRIIIISSSS EEEEELLLLIIIITTTTEEEEE!!!!
(Chris stands up in his corner and poses for the camera.)
Gina Romano: Introducing next, from Harlem, New York, weighing in at 230 pounds… he is the 2019 King of Elite… MAAALCCCOOLLMM JOOOONNEEEEESSSSS!!!!
(Malcolm looks laser focused as he ignores the boos from the crowd.)
Gina Romano: And next, from Tlaxcala, Mexico, weighing in at 210 pounds… He is the EAW Openweight Champion… T! L! A!
(TLA puts his arms up for the fans but keeps his eyes on Ahren.)
Gina Romano: And Introducing the Champion… from Pawtucket, Rhode Island, weighing in at 210 pounds… he is THE EAW CHAMPION!!!! AHHHHHHHRREEEEEENN FFFFOOOUUUURRRNNNNIIIIIEEEERRRR!!!!!
(Kassidy scoffs on the outside as Ahren enjoys the boos. The referee comes up and takes the title from Ahren before holding it up for all to see and calling for the bell.)
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Eve: And we are finally underway in this heavily anticipated matchup! Gawd Contract versus Openweight Championship versus King of Elite versus EAW Championship! All four men now locked into a staring contest inside the ring as no one will be the first to move! OH! Ahren and Malcolm both just slid out of the ring! I don’t think they planned to pull the same tactics but we are left with Chris Elite and TLA inside the ring! These two men know each other far too well and move to the center of the ring! Face to face they come as they stare a hole through one another! LISTEN TO THIS CROWD GOING WILD AS TWO OF THEIR FAVORITES STAND TOE TO TOE! AND NOW—
Deadprez: BOTH OF THEM JUST TOOK OFF TO THE SIDES! SUICIDE PLANCHAS FROM BOTH MEN! TLA TAKES OUT MALCOLM AND ELITE TAKES OUT AHREN! THEY WONT LET THEM SIT ON THE OUTSIDE AND THIS MATCH IS ALREADY DEVOLVING INTO A MASSIVE BRAWL! TLA WITH FISTS TO THE FACE OF JONES WHILE ELITE STOMPS INTO AHREN! BUT HERE COMES KASSIDY HEART! SHE HITS ELITE WITH A FOREARM TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD AND CHRIS TURNS AROUND TO FACE HER! NO DQ IN A FATAL FOUR WAY, FOLKS! ANYTHING GOES! KASSIDY SCREAMING HER HEAD OFF AT ELITE TO LEAVE AHREN BE BUT NOW HERE COMES BIG MIKE— to offer Kassidy a rose… seriously this shit is getting played out.
Eve: The heart wants what the heart wants and his heart wants Heart. No matter how he may hide it at times, it’s true love.
Deadprez: Uh huh. Well it’s played its part because while her back was turned Elite grabbed Fournier and rolled him into the ring! Elite pulls Ahren up— PLANTS HIM WITH A DDT! ELITE HOOKS THE LEG!
Eve: Quick kickout by the Champion! Elite grabs him by the head and tries to pull him up to continue the assault— THUMB TO THE EYE FROM FOURNIER! Elite is blinded and tries to clear his sight but Ahren now taking advantage! SUPERKICKS THE SHIN! ELITE DOWN TO A KNEE! STARSTRUCK! THE SUPERKICK TO THE JAW OF CHRIS ELITE AND AHREN GOES FOR A COVER—
Deadprez: BUT TLA CATCHES ABREN BEFORE HE CAN MAKE THE LATERAL PRESS! TLA WITH THE REAR WAISTLOCK AND PULLS AHREN BACK UP TO HIS FEET BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A ZIG ZAG! TLA NOW CLIMBING TO THE TOP ROPE! BOTH AHREN AND ELITE ARE DOWN INSIDE THE RING AND THE OPENWEIGHT CHAMPION MAY BE LOOKING FOR THE BURNOUT! WAIT WHOA!
Eve: MALCOLM JONES IS BACK UP AFTER TLA TOOK HIM OUT! HE JUST SPRINGBOARDED OFF THE ROPE AND CAUGHT TLA BY THE HEAD AND INTO A FALLING DDT FROM THE TOP ROPE! TLA CRUMBLES TO THE MAT BUT MANAGES TO ROLL OUT OF THE RING OFF INSTINCT! BUT MALCOLM SEES AHREN JUST GETTING UP TO HIS FEET AND NOW MJ GRABS HIM! WHIPS HIM INTO THE CORNER AND FOLLOWS WITH THE KNEE! WATER WHIP CONNECTS! HE SPRINGBOARDS BACK OFF THE SECOND ROPE AND TURNS INTO A DIVING KNEE DROP TO AHREN! MALCOLM HOOKS THE LEG!
Deadprez: ELITE BREAKS UP THE PIN! NOW DROPPING FOREARMS INTO THE BACK OF MJ’S HEAD AS HE TRIES TO GET BACK INTO THIS FIGHT! ELITE WAILING AWAY AT HIS FORMER PARTNER AND NOW DRIVING KNEES INTO JONES’S RIBCAGE! NOW ROLLING MALCOLM OVER AND TRIES TO HOOK A LEG FOR A PIN BUT JONES QUICKLY ROLLS HIS SHOULDER OFF THE MAT, CLUTCHING HIS RIBS! ELITE NOW PULLING MJ UP BY THE HEAD! GETS JONES UP TO HIS KNEES BEFORE TAKING OFF AND SPRINGBOARDING OFF THE TOP ROPE! BIONIC STOMP! THE MOONSAULT DOUBLE FOOT STOMP INTO THE BACK DRIVES MALCOLM FACE FIRST INTO THE CANVAS!
Eve: BUT HERE COMES ABREN NOW THROWING ELITE OVER THE TOP ROPES AND TO THE OUTSIDE! HOW THEMATICALLY APPROPRIATE FOR THIS SHOW! HE PINS THE DOWNED JONES!
Eve: JONES POWERS OUT IN TIME! LOOK AT HIS EYES! IM NOT SURE HE KNOWS WHERE HE IS RIGHT NOW! BUT HE SURVIVED AND AHREN THOUGHT HE’D MANAGED TO STEAL THE WIN!
Deadprez: Kassidy Heart is pounding the apron on the outside! She thought he had it too! Ahren gotta find a way to stay on top of this though! Ahren yells over to Kassidy… WHO NOW SLIDES A STEEL CHAIR INTO THE RING! Ahren is a former hardcore champion! He knows how to cause some major bodily harm! Ahren has the chair as Malcolm is stirring! Stalking him as he slowly stands! MJ is big trouble! Nearly to his feet! AHREN RUSHES WITH THE CHAIR!
Eve: BOX OFFICE SMASH! CHRIS ELITE BACK IN THE RING AND SUPERKICKS THE CHAIR INTO AHREN’S FACE!!! AHREN DROPS TO THE MAT AND ELITE LOOKS TO CAPITALIZE— NO! JONES GRABS HIM FROM BEHIND! KICK TO THE GUT! PLACES ELITES HEAD BETWEEN HIS LEGS! LOOKING FOR THE L TRAIN! THE CANADIAN DESTROYER!
Deadprez: BUT TLA SLIDES IN NOW AND RUSHES HIM! LEAPS UP INTO A SHOTGUN DROP KICK OVER THE TOP OF CHRIS ELITE TO KNOCK MJ BACK INTO THE CORNER AND TLA LANDS ON TOP OF CHRIS TO PLANT ELITE TO THE MAT! MJ COMES OUT OF THE CORNER AND NOW TLA KICKS HIM IN THE GUT! PUTS MALCOLM IN THE SITUATION ELITE WAS JUST IN! LOOKING FOR THE MEXICAN DESTROYER! HIS OWN VARIATION OF THE CANADIAN DESTROYER!
Eve: It’s the same move except with cholula hot sauce.
Deadprez: BUT MJ HAS HIS HEAD ABOUT HIM AND LIFTS HIM UP AND OVER! AVOIDS THE MOVE! BUT TLA GRABS HIM BY THE WAIST FOR A SUNSET FLIP ROLL UP!
Eve: JONES ESCAPES THE SURPRISE ROLL UP! HES BACK TO HIS FEET BUT TLA MEETS HIM THERE! VERY MEXICAN UPPERCUT! THE EUROPEAN UPPERCUT CONNECTS WITH JONES’S JAW AND KNOCKS HIM BACK! MALCOLM COMES IN SWINGING A PUNCH BUT TLA DUCKS IT! CARTEL KICK CONNECTS! HE HITS HIM WITH THE PELE KICK AND TLA IS ON FIRE RIGHT NOW!
Deadprez: MJ is down and TLA gonna— CHRIS ELITE WITH THE RUNNING BULLDOG FROM BEHIND TO PLANT TLA! TLA stunned but not staying down! Trying to get back up but Chris pounding away at him! TLA manages to shove him away— BOX OFFICE SMASH!!!
Eve: NO! TLA DUCKED IT! VERY MEXICAN UPPERCUT! KICK TO THE GUT OF ELITE! GRABS THE HEAD! MEXICAN DESTROYER CONNECTS! TLA MAKES THE PIN!
Deadprez: STORYBOOK ENDING! AHREN CONNECTED THE CURB STOMP ONTO TLA WHILE HE WAS IN PIN POSITION! AHREN MAKES THE COVER ON TLA!
Eve: NO! TLA GETS THE SHOULDER UP AT THE LAST INSTANT! FOURNIER IS LIVID! BUT HE MOVES OVER AND NOW PINS THE STILL DOWN CHRIS ELITE!!
Eve: NOT ENOUGH! Elite had enough time to recover! Fournier seething now as he grabs the steel chair from before! HE PLACES THE LEGS ON EITHER SIDE OF ELITES HEAD AND THE SUPPORT BAR IS DRIVING INTO HIS THROAT! ELITE COUGHING AND STRUGGLING TO BREATHE! CHRIS FIGHTING FROM BENEATH BUT AHREN LOOKS LIKE A CRAZED MAD MAN! THIS IS THE FORMER HARDCORE CHAMPION AT WORK! ELITE LOOKS LIKE HES FADING!

Eve: KICKOUT! AHREN MANAGES TO SURVIVE! THAT MUST HAVE BEEN THE LAST MILLISECOND! MJ CANT BELIEVE HE KICKED OUT! MJ now forcing his way back to his feet!
Eve: TLA WITH THE STEEL CHAIR TO THE BACK OF JONES! TLA RAINING THOSE CHAIR SHOTS DOWN ON MALCOLM! MJ IS FLAT ON THE MAT! TLA NOW TURNING HIS ATTENTION TO CHRIS ELITE WHO IS BEGINNING TO GET UP! TLA LAYING TO CHAIR INTO ELITE! AND NOW INTO FOURNIER! TLA RUNNING WILD WITH THE CHAIR SHOTS NOW! He goes after elite again… BUT ELITE CATCHES THE CHAIR BY THE SIDES! ELITE HOLDING THE CHAIR JUST AWAY FROM HIS HEAD! HE THROWS A KICK INTO TLA’S GUT AND WRENCHES THE CHAIR AWAY—

SHE ISNT ABOUT O LET ANYONE OTHER THAN AHREN WIN THIS MATCH! BUT HERE COMES BIG MIKE! HE GRABS KASSIDY BY THE FOOT AND DRAGS HER OUT OF THE RING! Look at Big Mike trying to apologize and— KASSIDY WITH THE KICK TO THE GROIN ON BIG MIKE!
Deadprez: Don’t sound shocked. Not the first time. Starting to wonder if Kassidy likes going after Big Mike’s dick.
Eve: Regardless, back inside the ring all four men are beaten down! TLA and Ahren look to be the first ones getting up to their feet! Ahren looks to be in pain but TLA is still groggy from the chair shot to the head! TLA IS BLEEDING! HIS FACE IS CRIMSON AFTER THE SHOT FROM CHRIS ELITE MOMENTS AGO! AND AHREN SEES IT! HE CHARGES THE OPENWEIGHT CHAMPION! PROTECT YA NECK! THE CLOTHESLINE FROM HELL!
Deadprez: NO! TLA DUCKS IT! HE AVOIDS THE MOVE AND LOOKS FOR ANOTHER VERY MEXICAN UPPERCUT— BUT AHREN MOVES BACK TO DODGE THE EUROPEAN UPPERCUT HIMSELF! AND HE GRABS TLA BY THE BACK OF THE HEAD AND THROWS HIM THROUGH THE ROPES AND OUT TO THE FLOOR!! TLA CRASHING HARD TO THE FLOOR!
Eve: LOOK AT KASSIDY HEART NOW! BACK UP ON THE APRON AND HANDING THE UMBRELLA TO AHREN! SHES WHISPERING SOME THINGS TO HIM AND— BOX OFFICE SMASH!

(MJ stands and raises both arms into the air before punching the air with all his remaining strength out of sheer adrenaline.)
Gina Romano: Here is your winner… and NEW EAW CHAMPION… MALLLCCOOOLLLMMM JJJOONNNEEEESSSSSS!!!
Deadprez: FROM NEO TO REVOLT TO RETURNING AND HEADLINING HIS FIRST PAIN FOR PRIDE IN WHAT WAS A HEARTBREAKING EFFORT AGAINST THE VERY MAN HE JUST PINNED.. TO SHOWDOWN WHERE HE WAITED ALL THIS TIME TO FINALLY BE ABLE TO CALL HIMSELF EAW CHAMPION! MALCOLM JONES HAS MADE HIS WAY TO THE TOP OF THE MOUNTAIN!
(MJ is handed the title and he holds it high above his head. Camera shows TLA still motionless by the commentary booth, Elite still on the mat, and Ahren sitting on the apron staring at the unconscious Kassidy Heart.)
Eve: MALCOLM JONES COMPLETED THE TRIPLE CROWN BY SUCCESSFULLY CASHING IN HIS VERY OWN CROWN! IN JUST UNDER A YEAR OF BEING ON THE MAIN ROSTER, MALCOLM JONES HAS ADDED HIMSELF INTO PRESTIGE COMPANY. WHAT A MOMENT THIS IS FOR THE KING OF ELITE! ON HIS 26TH BIRTHDAY, MALCOLM JONES BECOMES THE EAW CHAMPION OF THE WORLD.
(Camera fades on Malcolm climbing to stand on the turnbuckles, placing the championship over his shoulder.)
(Commercial for Hot Pockets, featuring Provencal.)
(The scene fades in as “Unfuckwithable” by Deez Nuts is playing in the background. Sienna Jade, who has the Women’s World Championship on her shoulder is sat down on the end near Gavin Kirkland on the commentators desk. Next to her, is Kassidy Heart, who never seems to leave Sienna’s side, but wanted to watch the match up close. Across from her is the number one contender for the Women’s World Championship later tonight, Raven Roberts, who is sat in a chair on the other end of the commentators desk next to CJ Hana.)
Gavin Kirkland: The Women’s World Champion, Sienna Jade and Raven Roberts are out here. They won’t be competing until later this evening, but whoever wins this Women’s Grand Rampage Match will be facing either of these women at Pain for Pride! But, we are just moments away from the first-ever Women’s Grand Rampage Match! Maria, take it away!
Maria Del Rey: THE FOLLOWING MATCH IS YOUR DAY ONE MAIN EVENT AND IT IS THE FIRST-EVER WOMEN’S GRAND RAMPAGE MATCH!
(The crowd in the Melbourne Cricket Ground cheers loudly in anticipation of the match!)
Maria Del Rey: The rules of the matches goes: two women start off the match and every ninety seconds, another woman will enter the match until number twenty has hit the ring. A competitor is eliminated once they go over the top rope with both feet touching the ground! The last woman standing will be the winner of the Women’s Grand Rampage and challenge for the Women’s World Championship at Pain for Pride! Introducing first, the woman who drew number one …
(Everything goes silent for a moment, but the crowd is more than anticipating who was the lucky woman to draw the number one spot in this match…)
(“Surfin’” — Kid Cudi featuring Pharrell Williams begins playing through the PA system. The crowd jumps on the edge of their seat as Serena Bennett walks from the back and steps on top of the ramp. Serena is all dressed in her typical ring gear as she is showing off her flashy jewelry. Being one out of the two women to begin this match is much pressure to her, but Serena is embracing the pressure and making the most out of it.)
(SCREEN BAR #1 — Serena Bennett.)
Maria Del Rey: From Compton, California…SEEEERRRRRREEEEENNNNNNAAAAA BEEEEENNNNNNEEEEEETTTTTTTTT!!
CJ Hana: Serena Bennett is a former Specialists Champion! She lost her title two weeks ago to Consuela Rose Ava on Empire thanks to a little assistance from Felix Hartley! You would think that this title loss would be devastating to Serena; however, she is shifting her attention to winning the Grand Rampage and going to face the Women’s World Champion at Pain for Pride! This is one woman, who loves to see her name in lights! She loves all of this attention! Being the first one out allows all the eyes to be on her going into this match!
Gavin Kirkland: If there is anyone I do not want to win the Women’s Grand Rampage Match, it’s Serena Bennett. She should have never been the Specialists Champion in the first place! She shouldn’t even be in this match, but if someone not named Andrea Valentine, Karina-Ann, Felix Hartley or even my wife, Cleopatra, does not win this match, I’m not bothering of coming on the next episode of Empire! Go find SG1 from the dumpster or someone to fill my void because I will not be able to deal with the travesty that will come with a non-blonde Grand Rampage winner!
(Serena Bennett has all of her jewelry off. She is only left with her ring gear as “Surfin’” fades away. Serena is walking around a bit in the ring as she waits for the woman, who drew number two. The crowd is getting rowdy in anticipation! Will it be a surprise? Will it be a fan favorite? We will have to see…)
Maria Del Rey: Now, it’s time to find out who drew number two…
(“The Joker” — New Years Day plays through the PA system as the crowd explodes as Ms. Extreme steps on the ramp. The PURE Championship is on her waist as she looks around the sea of fans in the Melbourne Cricket Ground before setting her sights on Serena Bennett in the ring, who is grinning ear-to-ear in the ring.)
(SCREEN BAR #2 — Ms. Extreme.)
Maria Del Rey: From Calabasas, California, she is the ELITE ANSWERS WRESTLING PURE CHAMPION, “THE RED QUEEN”…MSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS. EXXXXXXXXXTTTRRRRREEEEEMMMMEEEEEEE!!
CJ Hana: THE PURE CHAMPION?? Ms. Extreme debuted in the Specialists Rampage Match last year, but was instantly eliminated from this match! It seems like Camille is more than determined to redeem herself from what happened last year! Camille has been a pretty major part of the Dynasty roster for the past few months! She’s managed to hold onto that PURE Championship since January and has her sights on breaking the record held by Ares Vendetta at the moment!
Gavin Kirkland: Not as attractive as Felix Hartley, but I am not going to take away Ms. Extreme’s journey since the merge! She went from being instantly eliminated last year to becoming PURE Champion! Can you imagine if she won this match? Can you imagine if Sienna Jade is still champion after Grand Rampage? It seems like we could have a REVOLT 1 rematch at Pain for Pride!
(Ms. Extreme enters the ring as her and Serena Bennett stand toe-to-toe in the ring! The two women begin to trash talk as Camille raises the PURE Championship high in the air as Serena looks at the title. The official of the match, Marti Solo, takes Ms. Extreme’s title and hands it over to Maria Del Rey to take care of. Marti checks to see if both women are ready! Serena and Camille nods as the official rings for the bell to begin this Grand Rampage Match!)
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
CJ Hana: THE WOMEN’S GRAND RAMPAGE MATCH IS UNDERWAY! THE CROWD IN THE MELBOURNE CRICKET GROUND IS ELECTRIC! BOTH SERENA BENNETT AND MS. EXTREME ARE LOOKING AROUND THE CROWD! Both women look at each other before locking up! Camille manages to get Serena in a headlock before connecting with a headlock takedown! During her time as PURE Champion, Ms. Extreme has developed and enhanced her pure wrestling skills! It seems like she is going for a bit of mat wrestling as she manages get Serena up a bit, but still maintaining the headlock! Serena pushes Ms. Extreme to the corner! Ms. Extreme rebounds from the ropes — Serena with a superkick! Camille manages to stop herself from rebounding off those ropes! A superkick is what caused Camille to be eliminated from the match last year and she’s not falling for that trick this year! Camille manages to hold onto the ropes and prevent herself from rebounding off of them! Serena stumbles due to that superkick, but manages to catch herself! Ms. Extreme goes right after Serena Bennett with a clothesline as Serena falls to the ground, Ms. Extreme manages to catch Serena by her hair before throwing her against the corner! Ms. Extreme takes a few steps back before going for a meteora, but Serena manages to duck out of the way! MS. EXTREME IS STUCK AT THE CORNER AS SERENA MANAGES TO GET CAMILLE BY HER HAIR BEFORE SLAMMING HER BACK AGAINST THE MAT! CAMILLE IS HOLDING HER NECK IN PAIN AS SERENA TAKES CAMILLE AWAY FROM THE CORNER BEFORE TAKING A FEW STEPS BACK BEFORE CONNECTING WITH MOONLIGHT! THE RUNNING NECKBREAKER ON MS. EXTREME!
Gavin Kirkland: SERENA BENNETT CONNECTS WITH ANOTHER MOONLIGHT ON MS. EXTREME! MS. EXTREME IS HOLDING HER NECK AS SERENA CONNECTS WITH A THIRD MOONLIGHT! SERENA CONNECTS WITH A FOURTH! THE PURE CHAMPION IS DOWN AS SERENA GETS MS. EXTREME BY HER HAIR! SERENA THROWS CAMILLE OVER THE TOP ROPE, BUT CAMILLE MANAGES TO CATCH HERSELF ON THE APRON! SERENA GOES TO THROW CAMILLE OFF, BUT CAMILLE THROWS A FOREARM, WHICH STAGGERS SERENA BACK BEFORE GETTING INSIDE THE RING AGAIN! Ms. Extreme gets Serena up before connecting with northern lights suplex! Ms. Extreme begins to throw some punches to Serena’s face before getting the former Specialists Champion back to her feet! Ms. Extreme goes to whip Serena to the corner, but Serena counters and whips Camille to the corner instead! Camille stands on the turnbuckle as Serena goes right after her! Ms. Extreme with diving calf kick that sends both women down! By the look on the clock, we are just a few seconds away from adding a third woman into this match!
(“Underground” — Gob plays through the speakers as Io Ishimori comes out from the back. The crowd boos at the sight of her, but Io is more than focused to change the course of this match. Serena Bennett is down for the time being, but Ms. Extreme is up and ready for a fight.)
(SCREEN BAR #3 —Io Ishimori.)
CJ Hana: Io Ishimori is one of the newcomers that you will be seeing in this match! She has been here for a little while, but is just waiting for the one break out opportunity of hers and perhaps, winning the Grand Rampage and facing the Women’s World Champion at Pain for Pride will be a way to break out!
(Io Ishimori doesn’t wait until the ring to take off her mask. She takes off her mask on top of the ramp before running down the ramp and going towards the ring!)
Gavin Kirkland: Io Ishimori is going after the PURE Champion herself! IO SPRINGBOARDS FROM THE ROPE BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A BLIZZARD, A SPRINGBOARD HURRICANRANA AND THAT GETS CAMILLE AVA SPINNING AROUND LIKE A TOP! IO INSTANTLY GETS BACK TO HER FEET AS MS. EXTREME DOES AS WELL, BUT IO MANAGES TO STAY ON THE OFFENSE BY CONNECTING WITH SPRINGBOARD CROSSBODY AS THAT GETS CAMILLE DOWN ONCE AGAIN! IO RISES BACK TO HER FEET AS SHE GETS CAMILLE BY HER HAIR BEFORE THROWING HER AGAINST THE CORNER! IO TAKES A FEW STEPS BACK BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A HESITATION DROPKICK AS THAT SENDS CAMILLE IN A SEATED POSITION AT THE CORNER! Io takes a step back, but Serena Bennett manages to connect backstabber, but Io manages to catch herself as Serena crashes onto her back! Serena clutches to her lower back as she tries to get back to her feet, but Io connects with a dropkick! The dropkick sends Serena to her back again, but Io manages to follow that with a standing moonsault! Serena is clutching to her stomach in pain as Io gets Serena before whipping her to the same corner Ms. Extreme is at! Serena goes crashing onto Camille, who was trying to get herself back up to her feet! The crowd is not liking what whatsoever, but who cares about them? Io takes a few steps back before running and connecting with some double knees to Serena at the corner, but Camille sure felt that for sure! BOTH THE NUMBER ONE AND TWO ENTRANT FALL TO THEIR KNEES AS IO BEGINS TO DELIVER SOME SHOOT KICKS! ONE FOR SERENA! ONE FOR MS. EXTREME! ANOTHER ONE FOR SERENA! ANOTHER ONE FOR MS. EXTREME! THIS GOES ON BACK AND FORTH! I AM LOSING TRACK AT HOW MANY SHOOT KICKS HAVE HAPPENED, BUT EVERY AMOUNT OF FORCE IS BEING DELIVERED IN THOSE SHOOT KICKS!
CJ Hana: Io Ishimori goes for a shoot kick on Serena Bennett, but Serena manages to duck that shoot kick as Io goes spinning around due to missing that shoot kick! Serena manages to roll up, Io but pin falls will not win you the match, but Io manages to roll out of the roll up, but Serena has Io by her right leg! It seems like Serena is going to slam Io’s right leg against the mat, Serena has the leg high, but Io manages to catch herself as she springs back to her feet! Serena lets go of the leg as Io manages to connect with a spinning heel kick as that takes down the former Specialists Champion! Ms. Extreme plans to take advantage of the distraction, but Io connects with a back elbow as that staggers back the PURE Champion! IO GETS CAMILLE IN POSITION BEFORE CONNECTING WITH CHAOS! THE SOMERSAULT REVERSE DDT CONNECTS ON CAMILLE AVA! IO ISHIMORI IS THE ONLY WOMAN STANDING IN THE RING AS WE AWAIT FOR THE FOURTH PERSON TO JOIN THE MATCH!
(“Mona Lisa” — Lil Wayne featuring Kendrick Lamar play through the speakers as Cleopatra stands on top of the ramp. She has a serious and determined look on her face.)
(SCREEN BAR #4 — Cleopatra.)
Gavin Kirkland: IT’S THE LOVE OF MY LIFE! MY PICK TO WIN THE WOMEN’S GRAND RAMPAGE! THE ONE WHO IS GOING TO HOLD THAT WOMEN’S WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP AT PAIN FOR PRIDE! :blessed: :blessed: :blessed:
CJ Hana: Just don’t get the Jergins out…But, it seems like Cleopatra is not wasting any time as she is racing down the ramp and slides underneath the bottom rope! Io Ishimori manages to get Ms. Extreme out of the equation! Serena Bennett is slowly recovering on the apron! Io waits for Cleopatra to get to a vertical base, but the former Vixens Champion goes right after Io with a giant clothesline, but Io manages to duck before delivering some mean chops as she manages to back Cleopatra against the ropes! Io gets Cleopatra by her right arm and goes to whip Cleopatra towards the other ropes, but Cleopatra counters that whip as Io goes rebound off the ropes! IO GOES FOR A CROSSBODY, BUT CLEOPATRA MANAGES TO CATCH IO BEFORE SHE COULD FULLY CONNECT WITH THAT CROSSBODY! CLEOPATRA HOLDS IO UP AS SHE SHOWS HER STRENGTH TO THE CROWD BEFORE LIFTING IO UP AND THROWING IO BEHIND HER! IO CRASHES ONTO HER STOMACH! CLEOPATRA WITH A SINISTER SMIRK ON HER FACE AS SHE BEGINS TO STALK IO AS SHE SLOWLY GETS BACK TO HER FEET! POOR IO HAS NO IDEA WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN NEXT, BUT CLEOPATRA IS NOT GIVING HER ANYTIME TO THINK ABOUT THAT AS CLEOPATRA DROPKICKS IO’S ANKLES AS IO FALLS TO HER KNEES! CLEOPATRA TAKES A FEW STEPS BACK BEFORE RUNNING AND CONNECTING WITH A HURRICANRANA ON IO! Io is down for the time being as the “Queen of the Nile” makes it back to her feet! Her eyes turn to Serena Bennett, who is using the assistance of the ropes to get back to her feet! Serena is still as confident as ever as Cleopatra smirks at the former Specialists Champion! The two are face-to-face at each other as Serena shoves Cleopatra, but Cleopatra shoves Serena back! Serena connects with a huge slap across Cleopatra’s face!
Gavin Kirkland: Serena Bennett was always an idiot, CJ! I mean, do these women learn NOT to make Cleopatra angry? Cleo may be sexy when angry, but she can probably murder you as well! Using her shoulder, Cleopatra rams Serena Bennett against the corner! Cleopatra begins to connect with a few turnbuckle thrusts on the former Specialists Champion! Cleopatra tries to go for another turnbuckle thrust, but Serena gets on the top turnbuckle and sits herself on top of that, but my sweet Cleopatra sees no problem with that as she gets on a handstand! HER LEGS GET A GOOD HOLD ON SERENA AS CLEOPATRA MANAGES TO CONNECT WITH A TURNBUCKLE HEADSTAND HEADSCISSORS TAKEDOWN! SERENA BENNETT GOES FLYING ACROSS THE RING, BUT SHE MANAGES TO SLIDE HERSELF INTO A SEATED POSITION! CLEOPATRA MANAGES TO GET BACK TO A VERTICAL BASE BEFORE SERENA GOES RIGHT AFTER CLEOPATRA WITH A REEL IT IN, THE TILT-A-WHIRL HEADSCISSORS TAKES DOWN THE FORMER VIXENS WORLD CHAMPION AS SERENA GETS CLEOPATRA BACK TO HER FEET AND THROWS HER OVER THE TOP ROPE, BUT CLEOPATRA MANAGES TO CATCH HERSELF ON THE APRON! BY THE LOOK OF THINGS, CJ, IT LOOKS LIKE WE’RE GOING TO INTRODUCE THE FIFTH WOMAN IN THIS MATCH!
(“Ten Thousand Fists” — Disturbed plays through the speakers as Fatal Destiny’s Celes Dumont steps on top of the ramp. She looks at the four other women in the ring as she strategizes how she is going to approach this match.)
(SCREEN BAR #5 — Celes Dumont.)
Gavin Kirkland: Oh god, not that thing! Celes Dumont is one woman, who can turn the tides of this match into her favor! She better not go after my Cleopatra! She is one of the messiest wrestlers on Empire! She is not afraid to do what she needs to do to win!
CJ Hana: Celes Dumont runs down the ramp as she slides underneath the ring as she goes after Io Ishimori, who was dealing with Ms. Extreme at one of the corners! Celes gets Io by her hair — Celes throws Io over the top rope, but Io manages to stop herself in her tracks before Celes could do such a thing! It seems like Celes is going to for for the strategize to eliminate as much women as possible! The more that this ring begins to fill up, the more difficult it will be to focus on one woman and eliminate them! Celes delivers forearm to the back of Io Ishimori’s head as that knocks her to the ropes! Celes turns Io around before delivering some punches to Io’s face as Io finds herself in a seated position! Celes gets her foot and presses it against Io’s throat! Celes gets Io back to her feet before getting her by the arm and whipping her towards the corner! CELES RUNS BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A FLYING FORWARD TO IO AT THE CORNER! IO STUMBLES FORWARD AS CELES CONNECTS WITH A HUGE SIDE HAND CHOP TO IO’S STOMACH! CELES CONNECTS WITH ANOTHER ONE UNTIL SHE MANAGES TO BACK IO TO THE SAME CORNER AGAIN! CELES BEGINS TO STOMP ON IO AS IO SLOWLY GETS TO A SEATED POSITION AT THE CORNER! CELES TAKES A FEW STEPS BACK BEFORE RUNNING AND CONNECTING WITH A CANNONBALL SENTON TO IO ISHIMORI AT THE CORNER! CELES DUMONT GETS IO BACK TO HER FEET BEFORE GOING FOR THE TWISTED SISTER, THE ROLLING SNAPMARE FOLLOWED BY A SHOOT KICK COMBINATION! CELES GETS IO IN POSITION FOR BURST TIME, THE BACKBREAKER RACK AS SHE DROPS IO WITH A GUTBUSTER! CELES MANAGES TO DROP IO TO THE MAT! CELES GETS IO BY HER NECK, BUT —
Gavin Kirkland: A BLIND FURY FROM MS. EXTREME AS SHE MANAGES TO TAKE DOWN IO ISHIMORI WITH THAT DIVING DOUBLE FOOT STOMP! THAT MUST HAVE HURT LIKE A BITCH! IO ISHIMORI ROLLS HERSELF TO THE SIDE TO RECOVER FOR THE TIME BEING! CELES DUMONT TURNS MS. EXTREME AROUND AS CELES CONNECTS WITH A SPINNING BACKFIST ON CAMILLE! CELES SEES ONE OF THE BIG THREATS IN THE MATCH AND THAT IS THE PURE CHAMPION! CELES THROWS ONE PUNCH TO MS. EXTREME’S BACK BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A BUNCH OF RABID PUNCHES AS SHE GETS CAMILLE AVA TO HER KNEES! CELES IS GESTURING FOR CAMILLE TO GET BACK TO HER FEET! CELES REBOUNDS HERSELF OFF FROM THE ROPES TO CONNECT WITH AN AXE KICK THAT TAKES MS. EXTREME DOWN! Meanwhile, Celes gets herself turned around by Io Ishimori, who connects with a spinning back kick! Io races towards the ropes and rebounds herself off of them, but Celes manages to catch Io an uppercut as Io bounces onto the ropes! Celes gets Io by her arm before connecting with a series of short arm clotheslines! Celes follows that up with a neckbreaker as she takes down Io! Celes begins to throw some rabid punches to Io! Io is trying to cover herself, but Celes is getting each punch in! It seems like we’re going to let the sixth woman into this match, CJ! I wonder who it’s gonna be?
(“Feel Invincible” — Skillet plays through the PA system as Miho Li comes out from the curtain with a happy, but determined smile on her face. She looks around the crowd in the Melbourne Cricket Ground, before shifting her attention to back in the ring.)
(SCREEN BAR #6 — Miho Li.)
CJ Hana: Miho Li is one of the newcomers that you will be seeing throughout this Grand Rampage Match! She is nothing more than a young woman, who wants to make her family proud and prove that she can measure up to her family’s legacy! A wonderful way to do that would be winning this match! It seems like her and Io Ishimori have promised on some sort of alliance going into this match! I’m curious to see if we’ll get that here!
Gavin Kirkland: Miho has no idea what she is going to be getting herself into by getting involved in this match! Cleopatra and Serena Bennett are fighting each other! Ms. Extreme is down and trying to recover! No women have been eliminated so far! Celes Dumont and beating the living hell out of Io Ishimori as Miho Li runs down the ramp and slides underneath the ring! Celes throws Io to the side as she waits for Miho to come at her in the ring! CELES GOES RIGHT AFTER MIHO WITH A CLOTHESLINE, BUT MIHO DUCKS THE CLOTHESLINE BEFORE REBOUNDING OFF THE ROPES AND CONNECTING WITH SPRINGBOARD CROSSBODY ON CELES DUMONT! CELES GOES DOWN IN RESPONSE AS MIHO QUICKLY GETS BACK TO HER FEET! CELES DOES THE SAME THING SHORTLY, BUT MIHO MANAGES TO STAY ON THE OFFENSE BY CONNECTING WITH DROPKICK THAT SENDS CELES BOUNCING AGAINST THE ROPES! MIHO RUNS AND IT SEEMS LIKE MIHO IS TRYING TO CLOTHESLINE CELES OUT OF THE MATCH, BUT CELES MANAGES TO THROW MIHO OVER HER HEAD! MIHO GOES FLYING OUT OF THE RING! DID WE GET OUR FIRST ELIMINATION OF THE MATCH?
CJ Hana: Miho Li manages to catch herself on the apron! Celes Dumont believes that she has eliminated Miho from the match, so she shifts her attention back to Io Ishimori, but Io manages to catch Celes in position before she connects with a Last Day, a reverse STO that gets Celes to the ground! Miho Li gets herself back inside the ring once again by getting Celes from behind and throwing her over the top rope, but Celes manages to hold onto the top rope and drop herself to the apron! Io Ishimori gets Celes by her head before dragging her back inside the ring! Io connects with a rolling snapmare on Celes before getting in front of her and takes a few steps back! Io with a v-trigger as Celes is still on her knees! The only result was her head going back, but she is still in perfect position as Miho goes after Celes with a shining wizard as that knocks the member of Fatal Destiny to her side! These two women said earlier on Empire that they were going to look out for each other, and it’s starting to look like it’s paying off! Miho stands in front of Celes, while Io gets behind of Celes! What are they going to do here, Gavin?
Gavin Kirkland: IO ISHIMORI CONNECTS WITH A SHOOT KICK TO CELES DUMONT AS SHE LEANS FORWARD INTO A SHOOT KICK FROM MIHO LI! CELES LEANS BACK AS SHE LANDS IN ANOTHER SHOOT KICK FROM IO AND ANOTHER ONE FROM MIHO! THESE TWO WOMEN ARE REALLY GIVING IT TO THAT THING! NOT THE BLONDES THAT I LIKE, BUT I’LL TAKE THIS FOR THE TIME BEING! HOWEVER, WE ARE JUST A FEW SECONDS FROM INTRODUCING OUR SEVENTH PARTICIPANT! THIS RING IS STARTING TO FILL UP! NO ELIMINATIONS SO FAR!
(“Voices” — Motionless in White blasts through the speakers as Harlow Reichert stands on top of the ramp with determination in her eyes. She is looking around the crowd in the arena as they give her a pop.)
(SCREEN BAR #7 — Harlow Reichert.)
CJ Hana: Harlow Reichert should be a favorite to win the Grand Rampage Match, Gavin! She managed to defeat Celes Dumont two weeks ago on Empire in a No Disqualification Match! She seems like she is more than ready to kill for this opportunity!
Gavin Kirkland: Harlow Reichert runs down the ramp and slides underneath the ring! Io Ishimori and Miho Li throw Celes Dumont to the side as they go for a double clothesline on Harlow! But, Harlow manages to duck out of the way! She rebounds from the ropes to connect a jumping reverse STO on Io Ishimori and takes her down! MIHO LI TURNS HARLOW AROUND, BUT HARLOW QUICKLY CONNECTS WITH A MODIFIED REVERSE STO ON MIHO LI! SHE MANAGES TO TAKE DOWN THIS SMALL ALLIANCE BY HERSELF! SERENA BENNETT GOES AFTER HARLOW, BUT HARLOW IS ABLE TO STOP SERENA WITH BELLY-TO-BELLY SUPLEX! CLEOPATRA TURNS HARLOW BEFORE KICKING HER IN THE STOMACH AS SHE GETS HARLOW’S ARM BEFORE WHIPPING HER TOWARDS THE ROPES! HARLOW IS HOLDING ONTO THE ROPES TO PREVENT HERSELF FROM REBOUNDING OFF OF THEM! CLEOPATRA GOES RIGHT AFTER HARLOW, BUT HARLOW TUGS AT THE TOP ROPE, LOWERING AS CLEOPATRA GOES OVER! OH MY GOD! CLEOPATRA FALLS TO THE OUTSIDE! :sob: :sob: :sob:
CJ Hana: No, Gavin! Look! Cleopatra is hanging from the top rope! Her feet are just barely touching the ground, but Cleopatra is still in this match! Cleopatra could still win Grand Rampage! Harlow Reichert believes that she has eliminated Cleopatra from the match and shifts her attention back to Miho Li in the ring!
(Cleopatra being the GOAT she is, manages to use her strength to flip herself inside the ring. The crowd is in awe because of this, but Cleopatra brushes her shoulders off. It’s almost like that required no effort at all.)
Sienna Jade, Kassidy Heart and Raven Roberts: :notbad:
Gavin Kirkland: How I love this woman. :heart_eyes:
CJ Hana: Meanwhile, Harlow Reichert is clashing with Miho Li in the corner! Miho is in a seated position at the corner as Harlow takes a few steps back before running towards her and connecting with a cannonball senton! Harlow gets Miho back to a vertical base before getting her in position before connecting with a Saito suplex! HARLOW GETS MIHO BACK TO HER FEET ONCE AGAIN, BUT MIHO CONNECTS WITH A HUGE SLAP TO HARLOW’S CHEST! HARLOW YELPS IN PAIN; HOWEVER, HARLOW MANAGES TO CONNECT WITH A HUGE SLAP TO MIHO’S CHEST BACK! MIHO CONNECTS WITH A SLAP TO HARLOW’S CHEST AGAIN AND HARLOW TO MIHO’S CHEST! MIHO! HARLOW! MIHO! HARLOW! MIHO! MIHO! MIHO! MIHO GETS HARLOW BY HER RIGHT ARM BEFORE WHIPPING HER TOWARDS THE ROPES, BUT HARLOW REBOUNDS RIGHT AT MIHO AND CONNECTS WITH A FLYING TRIANGLE CHOKE ON MIHO LI! CHOKE A BITCH TO DEATH! MIHO IS TRAPPED! She has nowhere to go as Harlow quickly brings Miho down to the mat! Harlow may not be able to win via submission in this match, but she can probably make Miho pass out and eliminate her from the match! Miho is trying her best to escape this move, but Harlow has this moved locked in quite tight! MIHO IS TAPPING, BUT IT WILL BE NO USE AT ALL! MIHO IS DOING HER BEST TO FIGHT THIS MOVE, BUT HER TAPPING GETS MORE SLOWER AND LESS FREQUENT! SHE STOPS MOVING! IT SEEMS LIKE SHE MAY HAVE PASSED OUT AS HARLOW REICHERT RELEASES THE HOLD AS SHE GETS MIHO AND THROWS HER OVER THE TOP ROPE!
Maria Del Rey: Miho Li has been eliminated!
Gavin Kirkland: Miho Li put on a good fight, but ChOkE a BiTcH tO dEaTh was just too much for her, but we got our first elimination of the match! Just eighteen more to go! By the looks of things, we are about to introduce our eighth participant in this match!
(“Roar” — Katy Perry plays through the speakers as Constance Blevins walks out with a positive reaction to the crowd. Constance stands on top of the ramp as she looks up to the heavens and gives it a kiss before focusing her attention to the mess already happening in the ring.)
(SCREEN BAR #8 — Constance Blevins.)
Gavin Kirkland: MINERVA! :blessed:
CJ Hana: It’s Constance.
Gavin Kirkland: o
CJ Hana: Anyway…Constance Blevins has developed a new aggression in the ring! She had a dominating performance at the Iconic Cup against her former Pride stablemate, Layla Lockhart. Just two weeks ago on Empire, Constance injured Remi Skyfire during their match! Constance feels bad about about what happened to Remi, but it seemed like she burned the bridge over her friendship with Remi! With this hidden aggression that Constance has, she could be someone to win this entire thing! If she doesn’t hold anyone back, I think she has a clear shot of going all the way!
Gavin Kirkland: Constance Blevins steps through the middle rope and gets inside the ring as Serena Bennett goes after Constance with a somersault clothesline! Serena is someone who we haven’t been seeing much in this part of the match and it was truly a blessing! SERENA TAKES CONSTANCE DOWN AS SHE GETS HER BY HER HAIR BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A ROLLING SNAPMARE! SERENA GETS IN FRONT OF CONSTANCE BEFORE FOLLOWING THAT UP WITH A DROPKICK! CONSTANCE FALLS TO HER BACK AS SERENA BEGINS TO THROW SOME AGGRESSIVE PUNCHES TO THE SKULL OF CONSTANCE! SERENA GETS CONSTANCE TO A VERTICAL BASE BEFORE TUGGING HER ARM AND WHIPPING CONSTANCE TO THE CORNER! SERENA GOES RIGHT AFTER “THE LIONESS” AND CONNECTS WITH SOME DOUBLE KNEES TO THE CHEST OF CONSTANCE! CONSTANCE STUMBLES FORWARD IN RESPONSE TO THAT AS SERENA FOLLOWS THAT UP WITH A MONKEY FLIP, WHICH…WELL FLIPS CONSTANCE AROUND! There was nothing much to that, but I wasn’t expecting much from Serena! Serena gets Constance to a seated position before applying a bow and arrow stretch on Constance! It seems like Serena is going for a similar approach that Harlow went for when eliminated Miho Li from the match! Perhaps, she can weaken Constance’s limbs enough before applying the Trap Queen or Serenity! She could pass out Constance that way and eliminate her from the match! Constance is crying out in pain! That bow and arrow stretch is locked in tightly as Constance has nowhere to go and you don’t see any of the other women getting involved since they’re going with the same approach and clearing the ring as much as possible!
CJ Hana: Constance Blevins is a fighter and there is no way that she wants to get herself eliminated from the match! Serena Bennett releases the bow and arrow stretch as Constance falls face first in response to that! BUT, SERENA TRIES TO STAY ON THE OFFENSE AS SHE QUICKLY APPLIES SERENITY! THE INDIAN INVERTED DEATHLOCK FACELOCK ON CONSTANCE! CONSTANCE IS TAPPING OUT! CONSTANCE WON’T BE ABLE TO GET SERENA TO RELEASE THIS HOLD ON HER LIKE THAT! SHE NEEDS TO THROW SERENA OVER THE TOP ROPE TO MAKE THAT HAPPEN! WE ARE ABOUT THE INTRODUCE ARE NINTH WOMAN IN THIS MATCH! ONE ELIMINATION SO FAR, BUT THIS NEXT WOMAN COULD CHANGE THAT!
(“Chun-Li” — Nicki Minaj plays through the speakers as Felix Hartley walks out in her full length fur red coat to a mixed reaction from the crowd. She rolls her eyes at the crowd as she turns her attention to the action in the ring.)
(SCREEN BAR #9 — Felix Hartley.)
Gavin Kirkland: THIS MATCH JUST GOT BETTER!! WHERE IS MY JERGINS!?!?
CJ Hana: Do that on your own time, Gavin! Felix Hartley is the ninth woman to take part of this Grand Rampage Match! She has been on a roll as of late as she has yet to face a loss on Empire! That makes her a target going into this match! Not only that, but there may be quite a few woman, who she has pissed off since her arrival on Empire! But, Serena Bennett releases the Serenity hold as she demands for Felix to enter the ring! Serena is pissed at Felix for costing her the Specialists Championship two weeks ago on Empire! Serena would love nothing more than to get her revenge on “Ass, Class & Sass”!
Gavin Kirkland: Felix Hartley slowly gets on top of the apron as Serena Bennett is anticipating Felix’s arrival to the ring! Felix takes off her coat as it drops to ring side before stepping through the middle ropes and into the ring! SERENA SPEARS FELIX TO THE GROUND AS SHE BEGINS TO POUND AWAY WITH A SERIES OF STIFF FISTS TOWARDS FELIX’S SKULL! THAT MONSTER! SERENA BETTER STOP THAT! FELIX IS A POTENTIAL FACE FOR FOX! SHE MAY NOT BE THE BLONDE I DESIRE, BUT THIS WOMAN UNDERSTANDS THAT SEX SELLS AND KNOWS HOW TO USE IT! SERENA GETS FELIX BY HER HAIR, WHICH IS MOST LIKELY REAL INSTEAD OF THAT WEAVE THAT SERENA HAS IN HER HEAD! BUT, FELIX DELIVERS A DANGEROUS BITCH SLAP ACROSS SERENA’S FACE, MAKING HER STUMBLE TO HER KNEES! Serena has been in this match from the start! She entered the match as number one! I wouldn’t be shocked if Serena is beginning to lose steam, but her anger over what Felix did to her is driving her to keep going in this match! Felix gets Serena and connects with a flatliner! FELIX RISES BACK TO HER FEET AS SHE’S GRINNING TOWARDS THE CROWD! HER ARMS ARE OPEN IN CONFIDENCE AS THE CROWD IS BOOING THIS WOMAN! HOW DARE THEY BOO AT HER? SHE IS THE FUTURE OF EMPIRE! SHOW HER RESPECT! FELIX GETS SERENA BACK TO HER FEET AS SHE POINTS TOWARDS THE ROPES BEFORE GETTING SERENA IN A HEADLOCK AS SHE CONNECTS WITH HER VERSION IF A SPRINGBOARD BULLDOG, DOGGY STYLE, WHICH IS THE POSITION I LOVE MY WOMEN AT!
CJ Hana: All I wanted was a partner who wasn’t such a sex pest. :mjcry:
Gavin Kirkland: You love me, CJ! I’m like SOSA Henderson! The bitches love Gavin!
(Sienna Jade, Kassidy Heart and Raven Roberts turn to Gavin Kirkland at the commentator’s booth with glares and disgusted looks on their faces. It must be the fact that they were referred to as bitches. These three have been watching the match and minding their own business and Gavin was ruining that for them.)
Kassidy Heart (off-mic): Don’t be a sex pest.
Sienna Jade (off-mic): You’re embarrassing yourself.
Gavin Kirkland: The blondes hate me. I hate life. :mjcry:
CJ Hana: As we shift our attention back to the Grand Rampage, Felix Hartley shifts her attention from Serena Bennett to Ms. Extreme! This is a battle of the redheads, but my preference is towards Camille! Felix whips Camille to the corner as Felix runs and connects with a hesitation dropkick to Ms. Extreme, who stumbles forward! Felix catches Ms. Extreme with busaiku knee, but Camille is able to duck the knee by grabbing onto Felix’s knee before getting a good grasp onto her leg! Felix is shaking her head no as Camille has a huge smirk on her face before connecting with a dragon screw leg whip! Felix goes turning around as she grasps onto her right leg in pain! Ms. Extreme gets back to her feet as she places her foot on top of Felix’s right leg as Felix cries out in pain! The PURE Champion gets Felix back to her feet as she gets Felix in position before getting her up in the air — hair-pull gory special on Felix, who lands harshly front first!
(Ms. Extreme exchanges a look at Sienna Jade, but most importantly, the Women’s World Championship on her shoulder. Sienna Jade holds the title high up in the air proudly.)
Gavin Kirkland: MS. EXTREME GETS FELIX HARTLEY BY HER ARM BEFORE LOCKING IN THE SEATED FUJIWARA ARMBAR! CAMILLE CALLS THIS RED HANDED AS FELIX IS TAPPING OUT IMMEDIATELY! WHAT’S UP WITH THESE WOMEN BELIEVING THAT THEY CAN TAP OUT AND END THE PAIN? THIS IS FREAKING GRAND RAMPAGE! NOT A SUBMISSIONS MATCH! AS CAMILLE CONTINUES TO LOCK IN RED HANDED, THE CLOCK IS TICKING DOWN AS WE ARE IN DOUBLE DIGITS AS WE GET OUR TENTH WOMAN IN THIS MATCH!
(“Roll With Me” — Charli XCX plays through the speakers as the crowd in the Melbourne Cricket Ground EXPLODES out of their seats as Andrea Valentine comes out with a huge smile on her face. She is amazed of the crowd’s reception of her as she looks directly to the ring.)
(SCREEN BAR #10 — Andrea Valentine.)
Gavin Kirkland: Talk about another fan favorite entering this match! Andrea Valentine has had a rough part of 2019 as she lost her Specialists Championship to Serena Bennett at King of Elite! She tried getting the title back at the Iconic Cup, but it was no luck on her part! She looks forward to turning her luck upside down by winning Grand Rampage and challenging for the Women’s World Championship at Pain for Pride!
CJ Hana: Ms. Extreme releases Red Handed on Felix Hartley, who is clutching her arm in pain! Andrea Valentine runs down the ramp and slides underneath the ropes as she is face-to-face with the PURE Champion! This is one confrontation I didn’t envision, but Camille came into this match at number two and looks like she is about to crack at any second! The two women go to lock up as Andrea Valentine gets a good hold on Camille’s waist, but Ms. Extreme manages to elbow Andrea in the face, which releases the waistlock! Ms. Extreme connects with a headlock takedown on Andrea before getting herself on one knee as she wrenches in the headlock! She releases her headlock on Andrea before rebounding from the ropes, but Andrea connects with a hiptoss on Camille before getting in front of her to connect with a low dropkick! MS. EXTREME FALLS TO HER BACK AS ANDREA GETS MS. EXTREME TO HER KNEES BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A VALENTINE’S MASSACRE, THE HANDSTAND MODIFIED HEADSCISSORS DRIVER ON MS. EXTREME! ANDREA GETS TO A VERTICAL BASE AS SHE GESTURES FOR CAMILLE TO RISE BACK TO HER FEET! THE PURE CHAMPION SEEMS TO BE IN TROUBLE AS ANDREA RUNS TOWARDS MS. EXTREME! LOVE HAZE! THE RUNNING CORKSCREW NECKBREAKER AS MS. EXTREME COLLAPSES TO HER BACK! SHE IS CLUTCHING TO HER NECK IN PAIN AS ANDREA GETS MS. EXTREME BEFORE THROWING HER OVER THE TOP ROPE!
Maria Del Rey: Ms. Extreme has been eliminated!
Gavin Kirkland: Andrea Valentine manages to eliminate the PURE Champion from the match! Two women eliminated! Seventeen more women to go!
CJ Hana: Ms. Extreme redeem herself from last year! That’s for sure! It was a well-fought effort! Andrea Valentine turns her attention from Ms. Extreme as she turns around —
Gavin Kirkland: Andrea Valentine is face-to-face with Serena Bennett! These two started off 2019 in a bit of a heated rivalry; however, it concluded when Andrea lost at the Iconic Cup, but it seems like these two women are more than willing to settling this business once and for all!
Serena Bennett (off-mic and points to the Pain for Pride sign high in the rafters): It’s my time, Andrea! You got no chance of making it to the end! Not with me in this match!
CJ Hana: ANDREA VALENTINE DIDN’T SEEM TO LIKE WHAT SERENA BENNETT HAD TO SAY AS THE TWO OF THESE WOMEN! ANDREA THROWS A FOREARM TO SERENA, BUT SERENA THROWS A FOREARM TO ANDREA! THESE TWO WOMEN ARE THROWING RAPID FISTS AT EACH OTHER! YOU CAN TELL THAT THESE WOMEN STILL HAVE SOME BUSINESS THAT THEY WOULD LOVE TO SETTLE! Serena connects with a knee to Andrea’s stomach before taking a few steps back before connecting with Moonlight on the so-called “Heart of Empire”! Serena gets back to her feet as she gestures for Andrea to get back to her feet before connecting with another Moonlight! Andrea is clutching to her neck as she slowly gets back to her feet before connecting with another Moonlight! Serena connects with a fourth Moonlight as she manages to take Andrea down! Serena gets Andrea by her head as she tosses Andrea over the top rope!
Gavin Kirkland: BUT, ANDREA VALENTINE LANDS ON THE APRON! SHE IS STILL IN THIS MATCH, CJ! SERENA BENNETT REALIZES THAT AS SHE GOES TO ANDREA! ANDREA CONNECTS WITH A FOREARM TO SERENA BEFORE SPRINGING FROM THE ROPES AND CONNECT WITH A TILT-A-WHIRL HEADSCISSORS TAKEDOWN ON SERENA BENNETT! SERENA GOES SPINNING AROUND LIKE A TOP! SERENA HOLDS HER NECK IN PAIN AS ANDREA SLOWLY RISES BACK TO HER FEET! AT THE SAME TIME, SERENA IS GETTING BACK TO HER FEET! THE CLOCK BEGINS TO COUNT DOWN AS WE PREPARE FOR THE ELEVENTH PERSON TO ENTER THIS MATCH!
(The area goes silent as they await for the next arrival.)
(“Fighting Gold (Cloudy Remix)” — Coda beings to play throughout the arena…)
Gavin Kirkland: Oh my god…can it be?
CJ Hana: I think we’re looking at a ghost!
(SCREEN BAR #11 — Stephanie “Cloud” Matsuda.)
Gavin Kirkland: It’s the second longest reigning Women’s World Champion in EAW history! It’s “The Iconic War Queen”, Stephanie Matsuda! We haven’t seen her since she was injured by The Queen’s Court back in November! She finally got herself a set of balls to return and confront the roster, she basically held back in her reign of terror!
(The Empire Elitists in the ring stop fighting for a second. All of them are in disbelief with what is happening. Meanwhile, Sienna Jade, Kassidy Heart and Raven Roberts are all in shock of what is going on. Are their eyes deceiving them? Is this really Stephanie Matsuda?)
CJ Hana: Stephanie Matsuda is looking around the crowd as they are getting her a negative reception. I mean, she spinelessly walked away from this company! She ghosted everyone for three months! Wouldn’t answer text messages, phone calls or emails! Then one day, we read articles about how she joined that one company in Philadelphia and realized that she’s not only a traitor, but a spineless gullible follower!
Gavin Kirkland: When is she going to realize that Aria Jaxon is never going to love her?
CJ Hana: Stephanie Matsuda walks down the ramp before entering the ring! Not one single woman is fighting in the ring! They were all waiting for Stephanie’s arrival in this match! ANDREA VALENTINE KICKS STEPHANIE IN THE STOMACH BEFORE GETTING ON HER SHOULDERS! ANDREA VALENTINE WITH AN ATOMIC BLONDE, THE REVERSE FRANKENSTEINER AS SHE SPIKES STEPHANIE ON HER HEAD! ANDREA GETS STEPHANIE AND TOSSES HER OVER THE TOP ROPE!
Maria Del Rey: Stephanie “Cloud” Matsuda has been eliminated!
Gavin Kirkland: ANOTHER ELIMINATION FOR ANDREA VALENTINE! THIS GIRL IS ON A ROLE! :whew:
CJ Hana: RAVEN ROBERTS GETS OFF THE EDGE OF HER SEAT BEFORE GETTING STEPHANIE MATSUDA AND THROWING HER AGAINST THE STEEL STEPS? WHAT IN THE HELL IS GOING ON? RAVEN ROBERTS IS ROLLING STEPHANIE BACK INSIDE THE RING! HARLOW REICHERT, SERENA BENNETT, FELIX HARTLEY, IO ISHIMORI, CELES DUMONT, CONSTANCE BLEVINS AND CLEOPATRA ARE STOMPING THE HELL OUT OF STEPHANIE MATSUDA! A MAJORITY OF THESE GIRLS CAME AFTER STEPHANIE DEPARTED FROM THE COMPANY, BUT THIS IS THE MOST UNITED WE HAVE SEEN THE EMPIRE ROSTER! RAVEN IS INSTRUCTING FOR ANDREA TO CONNECT WITH THE ATOMIC BLONDE AGAIN! ANDREA GIGGLES, BUT AGREES TO IT! ANDREA GETS ON TOP OF STEPHANIE’S SHOULDERS AGAIN — ATOMIC BLONDE ON STEPHANIE ONTO A TALON BY RAVEN ROBERTS! STEPHANIE MATSUDA COLLAPSE TO HER BACK AS —
???: GET HER ON HER KNEES!
(Andrea Valentine and Raven Roberts look at Sienna Jade, who is standing on the apron, jumping in anticipation! She has been waiting for this moment for over a year now! Raven and Andrea may not like Sienna, but the desire to give Stephanie her karma is something that they can all agree on.)
Gavin Kirkland: STEPHANIE MASTUDA IS RISING BACK TO HER FEET! SHE HAS NO CLUE WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN NEXT AS SIENNA JADE CONNECTS WITH RAW SIENNA! THE SPRINGBOARD DROPKICK TO STEPHANIE AS KASSIDY HEART FOLLOWS THAT UP BY PAINFULLY EVER AFTER! THE CURB STOMP TO STEPHANIE! STEPHANIE’S HEAD GOES BOUNCING AGAINST THE MAT BEFORE CLEOPATRA GETS STEPHANIE AND THROWS HER THROUGH THE MIDDLE ROPE! OUT WITH THE PIECE OF TRASH!
(The Empire roster is with a huge grin on their faces. They may not like each other, but they despise Stephanie Matsuda and that is something that they can agree on. Stephanie is struggling with getting herself up as the crowd gets antsy for the next woman to enter this match.)
(“I Smell A Massacre” — The Butcher Babies blasts through the speakers. The crowd EXPLODES as Tyler Wolfe steps on top of the ramp. She is embracing the reception that her home country is giving her. She is feeling the love before her eyes focus on Stephanie Matsuda. Stephanie stops moving as Tyler Wolfe makes her way down the ramp! She is running in the speed of lighting before…)
(SCREEN BAR #12 — Tyler Wolfe.)
CJ Hana: STEPHANIE MATSUDA TURNS AROUND AS TYLER WOLFE RUNS THROUGH HER WITH A SPEAR! TYLER BEGINS TO CLUB AWAY WITH A SERIES OF FIERY FISTS ON STEPHANIE! TYLER GETS STEPHANIE BY HER HEAD BEFORE HITTING HER HEAD FIRST AGAINST THE APRON! STEPHANIE’S HEAD GOES BACK BEFORE TYLER GETS HER HANDS ON STEPHANIE’S HEAD BEFORE THROWING HER AGAINST THE RING POST! THE SOUND OF THAT WAS UGLY, GAVIN!
Gavin Kirkland: Stephanie Matsuda is ugly, CJ! She’s not blonde, a dyke, and a traitor. All the things that I hate in a woman. But, Tyler Wolfe gets Stephanie’s up to the apron! Tyler has Stephanie in position before she connects with an BINGO HALL MASSACRE! THAT CANADIAN DESTROYER ON STEPHANIE! TYLER KICKS STEPHANIE OUT OF THE APRON! BEFORE STEPPING INSIDE THE RING!
CJ Hana: Io Ishimori is not going to give Tyler Wolfe any time to breathe as she goes right after the former Specialists Champion with some punches to her back! Tyler is knocked down to her knee as Io follows that up with a dropkick as that knocks Tyler to her back! Io gets Tyler back to her feet and it seems like Io is going to eliminate Tyler, but Tyler has her feet firmly on the ground! She had just gotten into the match! There is no way that she is going to get herself eliminated so early in this match! I think we may have a riot if we do! Io begins to punch away at Tyler’s face! TYLER FINDS HERSELF ON HER KNEES BEFORE IO RUNS AFTER HER WITH A BICYCLE KNEE TO TYLER AS THAT KNOCKS HER BACK! IO FOLLOWS THAT UP WITH A MOONSAULT, BUT TYLER HAS HER KNEES UP! IO LANDS ON TYLER’S KNEES AS SHE CLUTCHES ONTO HER STOMACH IN PAIN! THIS MAY BE THE ONE MOVE THAT TYLER NEEDED TO GET HERSELF INTO THIS MATCH! TYLER WOLFE GETS HERSELF BACK TO HER FEET AS SHE IS MET FACE-TO-FACE WITH CELES DUMONT! WE HAVEN’T SEEN CELES MUCH IN THIS MATCH, BUT THAT MAY HAVE BEEN A GOOD THING FOR HER! CELES IS GESTURING FOR TYLER TO COME AT HER! CELES MAY SEE THAT TYLER IS A THREAT IN THIS MATCH AND BY STANDING TOE-TO-TOE TO HER, SHE MAY BE PROVING SOMETHING!
Gavin Kirkland: That thing goes after Tyler Wolfe as Tyler gets Celes Dumont by her arm and connects with a hiptoss! Celes finds herself in a seated position before Tyler connects with a giant knee that knocks Celes to her back! WITH CELES DOWN, TYLER BEGINS TO KNEE CELES TO THE FACE MULTIPLE TIMES! TYLER WOLFE IS GOING AGGRESSIVE IN THIS MATCH! TYLER GETS CELES IN POSITION BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A GERMAN SUPLEX, WHICH THROWS HER ACROSS THE RING! ANDREA VALENTINE GOES AFTER TYLER, BUT TYLER GETS ANDREA IN POSITION BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A GERMAN SUPLEX ON HER! CONSTANCE BLEVINS GOES AFTER TYLER, BUT ENDS UP WITH A GERMAN SUPLEX! CLEOPATRA GOES AFTER TYLER, BUT TYLER WITH A GERMAN SUPLEX! AND ONE FOR SERENA BENNETT! TYLER WOLFE IS THE ONLY WOMAN STANDING IN THIS RING! TYLER IS ON FIRE AS THE CROWD IS ELECTRIC AT THE MOMENT!
CJ Hana: Harlow Reichert makes it back to her feet as she stands toe-to-toe with Tyler Wolfe. Harlow and Tyler have clashed a few times, but Tyler always seems to have the upper hand on Harlow, but Harlow is not going to let that stop her! Harlow throws a punch to Tyler! Tyler throws a punch to Harlow! Harlow throws a punch to Tyler again! Tyler throws a punch to Harlow again! Harlow! Tyler! Harlow! Tyler! Harlow! Harlow! Harlow gets Tyler in position! LMFAO — THE BRAINBUSTER TO THE KNEE! TYLER GOES DOWN! HARLOW GETS HERSELF BACK TO HER FEET AS TYLER ROLLS HERSELF AWAY FOR THE TIME BEING TO RECOVER! BUT, IO ISHIMORI MAKES HER PRESENCE KNOWN IN THIS MATCH AGAIN! SHE TURNS HARLOW AROUND! LAST DAY — THE REVERSE STO AS THAT KNOCKS HARLOW DOWN! IO GETS HARLOW BY HER HAIR AND IT SEEMS LIKE SHE IS TRYING TO THROW HARLOW OVER THE TOP ROPE, BUT HARLOW IS NOT LETTING THAT HAPPEN AT ALL! HARLOW KNOWS WHAT IS IN STAKE IN THIS MATCH! SHE WANTS TO MAKE IT TO THE PAIN FOR PRIDE STAGE! THIS MAY BE HER SHOT AT DOING THAT! IO GETS HARLOW BY HER HAIR AND SMACKS HER HEAD BACK AGAINST THE MAT! IO TRIES TO GET HARLOW BACK TO HER FEET, BUT HARLOW SOMEHOW ADJUSTS HER BODY ENOUGH TO GET IO IN POSITION FOR PAIN! SHE IS SPINNING IO AROUND LIKE A TOP! HARLOW MANAGES TO SLAM IO’S BODY OUTSIDE THE RING! IO IS OUT OF THE RING!
Maria Del Rey: Io Ishimori has been eliminated!
Gavin Kirkland: Four eliminations already! Another one for Harlow Reichert! She currently ties Andrea Valentine with two eliminations! By the looks of things, we are waiting for the thirteenth woman to enter this match! I am still shook by the death of Stephanie Matsuda still, but let’s move forward in this match!
(“Siren Assassin”— Kristine Elezaj plays through the PA as Fatal Destiny’s Karina-Ann walks out and stands on top of the ramp. The crowd is booing the woman as she rolls her eyes at it. She focuses on what’s happening in the ring.)
(SCREEN BAR #13 — Karina-Ann.)
Gavin Kirkland: Yes! The more blondes, the merrier! The beautiful and blonde Karina-Ann put on an amazing showing at the Iconic Cup! She proved that she could stand toe-to-toe with some of the best on Empire! Winning Grand Rampage will be the first step into breaking out and hopefully, leaving that thing she calls a partner!
CJ Hana: Harlow Reichert is more than waiting for Karina-Ann to make it back to the ring — CELES DUMONT CLUBS HARLOW IN THE SKULL FROM BEHIND! IT’S IMPRESSIVE THAT CELES IS STILL EVEN IN THIS MATCH! KARINA-ANN TAKES HER TIME AS SHE STEPS THROUGH THE ROPES TO GET INSIDE THE RING! FATAL DESTINY BEGINS TO STOMP AWAY AT HARLOW! BOTH MEMBERS OF FATAL DESTINY SEE HARLOW AS ONE OF THE THREATS TO ELIMINATE FROM THIS MATCH! CELES STILL FEELS A BIT OF ANGER FROM HER LOSS AGAINST HARLOW TWO WEEKS AGO ON EMPIRE! BY ELIMINATING HARLOW FROM THIS MATCH, IT COULD EASE SOME OF THAT ANGER! FATAL DESTINY IS A TAG TEAM! THEY ARE GOING TO NEED TO WORK WITH EACH OTHER AS MUCH AS THEY CAN IF IT MEANS LESSER WOMAN IN THIS MATCH! They have that chemistry on their side, Gavin! Karina-Ann gets Harlow Reichert back up to her feet! Karina-Ann has Harlow by her arms as Celes delivers a huge forearm to Harlow’s face as that knocks her to a seated position! Fatal Destiny is making their presence known in this match! KARINA-ANN AND CELES DUMONT GET HARLOW REICHERT BACK TO HER FEET AS THEY WHIP HER TO THE CORNER! FATAL DESTINY WITH THE KISS OF DEATH — THE RUNNING BIG BOOT TO HARLOW BY CELES AS KARINA-ANN FOLLOWS THAT UP WITH ENZUIGIRI TO HARLOW! HARLOW STUMBLES TO HER KNEES! KARINA-ANN SEEMS TO LEAVE CELES WITH HARLOW REICHERT BEFORE SHE FOCUSES ON CONSTANCE BLEVINS, WHO IS SLOWLY RISING BACK TO HER FEET!
Gavin Kirkland: Karina-Ann gets a fistful of Constance Blevins’ hair before slamming her head back against the mat! Constance is for sure feeling a huge pounding from the back of her head! Karina-Ann gets Constance back up to her feet before getting her by the arm and whipping her to the corner! Karina-Ann connects with the corner high spin kick as that makes Constance fall to a seated position on the middle row of the ropes! KARINA-ANN BEGINS CLUBBING CONSTANCE WITH FISTS ON TOP OF THE HEAD TO GET HER DOWN ON A SEATED POSITION ON THE MAT! CONSTANCE BLEVINS FIRES BACK WITH A PUNCH OF HER OWN AS THAT STAGGERS KARINA-ANN BACK BEFORE KARINA-ANN RESPONDS WITH A PUNCH OF HER OWN, BUT CONSTANCE FIRES BACK WITH A HUGE PUNCH AS THAT STAGGERS KARINA-ANN A BIT AGAIN! CONSTANCE POWERS HERSELF BACK UP TO HER FEET AS KARINA-ANN GOES FOR A CLOTHESLINE, BUT CONSTANCE STOPS KARINA-ANN IN HER TRACKS BEFORE GETTING KARINA-ANN BY HER ARM AND DELIVERING A VICIOUS HEADBUTT! KARINA-ANN STUMBLES TO HER KNEE AS SHE CONNECTS WITH A PUNCH TO CONSTANCE! CONSTANCE WITH A HEADBUTT TO KARINA-ANN BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A SERIES OF SHORT-ARMED CLOTHESLINES! WITH THE LAST SHORT-ARMED CLOTHESLINE CONSTANCE GIVES OUT A BATTLECRY AS IT SEEMS LIKE THE FOURTEENTH WOMAN WILL BE MAKING HER WAY TO THE MATCH! FOUR ELIMINATIONS SO FAR!
(“Cannon Rock” — Jerry C plays through the speakers as the crowd gives a positive reaction as La Halcón stands on top of the ramp with a smile of determination.)
(SCREEN BAR #14 — La Halcón.)
(La Halcón she doesn’t waste anymore time taking in the reception of the crowd as she runs towards the ring, slides underneath the bottom rope and goes after Constance Blevins.)
CJ Hana: La Halcón doesn’t waste anymore time as she goes right after the woman, who put her half-sister, Remi Skyfire on the shelf for the time being! Constance goes for a clothesline, but La Halcón ducks the clothesline before spring boarding off the ropes and connecting with a crossbody! BUT, CONSTANCE MANAGES TO CATCH AS SHE SHOWS OFF THAT STRENGTH, BUT LA HALCÓN MANAGES TO SHIFT HERSELF IN POSITION BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A TILT-A-WHIRL HEADSCISSORS TAKEDOWN ON CONSTANCE BLEVINS! CONSTANCE IS FLIPPED AROUND AS LA HALCÓN KEEPS UP THE MOMENTUM BY FOLLOWING UP THAT TILT-A-WHIRL HEADSCISSORS TAKEDOWN WITH A LOW DROPKICK AS CONSTANCE FALLS TO HER BACK! LA HALCÓN RUNS TOWARDS THE ROPES AND CONNECTS WITH A LIONSAULT AS SHE LANDS ON CONSTANCE! LA HALCÓN MAKES IT BACK TO HER FEET AS SHE IS HYPING THE CROWD IN THE MELBOURNE CRICKET GROUND! SHE GOES TO GET CONSTANCE BACK TO HER FEET AS SHE THROWS “THE LIONESS” OVER THE TOP ROPE!
But, Constance manages to catch herself on the apron as she hands onto the rope! La Halcón doesn’t see that as she manages to shift her focus on Felix Hartley!
Gavin Kirkland: I wonder why La Halcón wears a mask? Is it because of how hot Felix Hartley is and her looks threaten her? I mean, same! La Halcón gets Felix back to a vertical base as she whips her towards the ropes! La Halcón connects with a dropkick as Felix falls to her back! La Halcón was one of Felix’s first opponents in EAW, so La Halcón feels like she may have something to prove going up against one of the best rookies that EAW has ever been graced with! WITH FELIX ON HER BACK, LA HALCÓN CONNECTS WITH A STANDING MOONSAULT, BUT FELIX HAS HER KNEES UP! LA HALCÓN CLUTCHES TO HER STOMACH IN PAIN AS FELIX HAS A HUGE AND SINISTER GRIN ON HER FACE! FELIX RISES TO HER FEET AS SHE FLIPS HER HAIR BACK! SHE LOOKS SO HOT BEFORE LOOKING BACK AT LA HALCÓN AND CONNECTING WITH A SPIT-LEGGED MOONSAULT ON LA HALCÓN! BY THE LOOKS OF RAVEN ROBERTS RING SIDE, SHE WAS QUITE IMPRESSED WITH THE MOVE! The three of these women ringside have been quiet for a majority of the match, but it must be because they know how serious they need to take this match! Any of these women can be their opponent at Pain for Pride! Felix Hartley shifts her attention from La Halcón to Celes Dumont! THE TWO OF THEM CLASHED LAST WEEK ON EMPIRE! FELIX’S TEAM ENDED UP GETTING THE VICTORY, BUT IT SEEMS LIKE CELES IS JUST CLUTCHING ONTO THE HOTTEST THING ON EMPIRE AT THE MOMENT LIKE THE CLOUT CHASER SHE IS! BUT, BY THE LOOKS OF THINGS, WE ARE ABOUT TO INTRODUCE THE FIFTEENTH WOMAN INTO THIS MATCH!
(“Boom Clap” — Charli XCX plays through the speakers as Layla Lockhart gets a somewhat decent pop from the crow. Layla has a huge smile on her face as she is taking the scenery around here.)
(SCREEN BAR #15 — Layla Lockhart.)
Gavin Kirkland: LAYLA LOCKHART IS MAKING HER RETURN IN THIS MATCH! JSENJWENGJWENJNWEJGF
CJ Hana: She’s been back for about a few weeks now, Gavin.
Gavin Kirkland: Really? I haven’t paid much attention. She is not a blonde or Felix Hartley, so I don’t give a damn about her to be quite honest. Nothing about this girl impresses me. I’m surprised that she even made it to this match on time! Just stop looking at the scenery, Layla and get in the damn ring! We need to get more eliminations in this match! FELIX HARTLEY SHIFTS HER ATTENTION FROM CELES DUMONT ONTO LAYLA LOCKHART, WHO IS THE FRESHEST WOMAN IN THIS MATCH AT THE MOMENT! FELIX GOES RIGHT AFTER LAYLA, BUT LAYLA STOPS FELIX BEFORE GETTING HER IN POSITION AND CONNECTING WITH A SPANISH FLY! THAT TAKES FELIX DOWN! FELIX IS ON HER BACK AS LAYLA FOLLOWS THAT UP WITH A DOUBLE FOOT STOMP! FELIX IS CLUTCHING TO HER STOMACH IN PAIN! LUKEWARM LAYLA SHIFTS HER ATTENTION FROM FELIX AS SHE GOES RIGHT AFTER CLEOPATRA, WHO TRIES TO HALT HER MOMENTUM BY CONNECTING WITH AN AXE HANDLE, BUT LAYLA MANAGES TO DUCK IT BEFORE HOPPING HERSELF OFF THE APRON BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A FALLING WITH STYLE AS SHE MANAGES TO TAKE CLEOPATRA DOWN!
Layla turns herself around as she manages to stand toe-to-toe with her former Pride teammate! Constance managed to defeat Layla with an ease at the Iconic Cup! You can tell that Layla wants to redeem herself from that humiliating loss! LAYLA CONNECTS WITH A FOREARM TO CONSTANCE, BUT CONSTANCE CONNECTS WITH A FOREARM BACK TO LAYLA! LAYLA WITH ANOTHER FOREARM TO CONSTANCE, BUT CONSTANCE WITH ANOTHER FOREARM TO LAYLA! THESE TWO WOMEN ARE DELIVERING FOREARMS AT EACH OTHER! CONSTANCE DELIVERS A NASTY LOOKING FOREARM, WHICH STAGGERS LAYLA BACK A BIT, BUT LAYLA GOES RIGHT AFTER CONSTANCE WITH A BOTTLE ROCKET, THAT SPEAR AS LAYLA BEGINS TO CONNECT WITH A SERIES OF RAPID PUNCHES BEFORE GETTING HERSELF BACK UP TO HER FEET! BEFORE CONSTANCE CAN GET BACK TO HER FEET, LAYLA CONNECTS WITH A SUPERHERO KICK AS SHE TAKES CONSTANCE TO HER BACK!
CJ Hana: Layla Lockhart is getting herself hyped up before she turns herself around and is face-to-face with Tyler Wolfe! Tyler has a sinister look on her face! Tyler is out for blood, Gavin! She has been going hard all week and in this match, it will be no different at all! TYLER MANAGES TO FLIP LAYLA AROUND BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A SNAPMARE! TYLER FOLLOWS THAT UP WITH A HUGE SOCCER KICK TO LAYLA’S BACK! LAYLA YELLS IN PAIN AS TYLER GETS IN FRONT OF LAYLA BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A DANGEROUS KNEE! THAT KNOCKS LAYLA OUT AS SHE FALLS TO HER BACK! TYLER GETS LAYLA IN POSITION BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A (YOU’RE) BROKEN BITCH! THE X-PLEX ON LAYLA LOCKHART! THE MOVE CONNECTS AS TYLER GETS LAYLA AND THROWS HER OVER THE TOP ROPE!
Maria Del Rey: Layla Lockhart has been eliminated!
Gavin Kirkland: Finally, we get another elimination in the match! But, it seems like we’re going to introduce the sixteenth woman in this match! I wonder who it will be, CJ?
(“Another One Bites The Dust” — Queen plays through the speakers…)
Gavin Kirkland: OH MY GOD! CAN IT BE?!?!??!?!?
CJ Hana: Oh god no…
(SCREEN BAR #16 — The Visual Prophet.)
(The Visual Prophet casually strolls out as the crowd is giving a huge mixed reaction. By his side is his assistant Nina Dobrev. Veena Adams is nowhere in sight because Empire is a #QueensOnly show apparently, which she hates.)
Gavin Kirkland: IT IS, CJ! IT’S THE SLAYER OF SLUTS! THE SLASHER OF SPIRITS! CONQUEROR OF CUNTS! THE BASHER OF BITCHES! THE FACE OF EMPIRE HAS RETURNED TO US! :blessed: :blessed: :blessed:
Nina Dobrev: BAE MAKING HISTORY AGAIN! MAKE WAY FOR BAE!
(The Visual Prophet is making sure to take his precious time getting into the ring. Tyler Wolfe looks to be pissed off due to how things went in their match at the Iconic Cup. She had her foot on the rope, which was taken off thanks to Veena Adams. Tyler is planning to use this match as away to get her revenge.)
CJ Hana: The Visual Prophet slides underneath the ring as he goes after Tyler Wolfe with a spear takedown! Viz gets back up to his feet as Tyler goes right after him! Viz and Tyler are trading forearms at one another! These two plan to resume what they began at the Iconic Cup! One of the most talked about matches of the night! VIZ MANAGES TO PUSH TYLER BACK BEFORE CONNECTING WITH THAT IKE TURNER SPECIAL! THE SPINNING BACK FIST IS ENOUGH TO MAKE TYLER STUMBLE BACK AGAINST THE ROPES! KARINA-ANN GOES AFTER VIZ, BUT AN IKE TURNER SPECIAL FOR HER AS WELL AS THAT MAKES HER STUMBLE BACK! LA HALCÓN RUNS AFTER VIZ, BUT AN IKE TURNER SPECIAL TO HER! HARLOW REICHERT RUNS AFTER VIZ, BUT AN IKE TURNER SPECIAL FOR HER AS WELL! VIZ HAS MANAGES TO TAKE DOWN FOUR PARTICIPANTS IN THIS MATCH AS HE GETS TURNED AROUND —
Gavin Kirkland: The Visual Prophet is staring down as Serena Bennett is running her ugly mouth at him! Viz has had his issues with her new boy toy, that thief SOSA Henderson. Viz has been taking shots on Serena all week. How does Serena believe that she can handle this herself? SERENA CONNECTS WITH A HUGE SLAP ACROSS VIZ’ FACE! THAT IS YOUR FACE OF EMPIRE AND YOU BETTER GIVE HIM RESPECT, SERENA! VIZ IS FEELING THE STING FROM THAT SLAP ACROSS HIS CHEEK, BUT SOON CHUCKLES IT OFF BEFORE CONNECTING WITH AN UPPERCUT THAT SENDS SERENA TO HER BACK! VIZ GETS SERENA BACK TO HER FEET BEFORE GETTING HER UP! LOOK AT THE STRENGTH FROM THE FACE OF EMPIRE, CJ! TYLER WOLFE CAN NEVER DO THAT! SERENA BENNETT CAN NEVER BE THE PERSON OF COLOR THAT THIS BRAND NEEDS! Andrea Valentine can never have as much heart as The Visual Prophet! VIZ IS SHOWING OFF THAT STRENGTH OF HIS BEFORE CONNECTING WITH THE MILITARY PRESS SLAM AS THAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN ENOUGH TO BREAK SERENA IN HALF, BUT SADLY, IT DOES NOT! IT IS TAKING SOME TIME FOR SERENA TO GET INTO A SEATED POSITION, BUT VIZ DOES NOT WASTE HIS TIME BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A RUNNING KNEE STRIKE THAT TAKES THE FORMER SPECIALISTS CHAMPION DOWN! SERENA IS DOWN ON HER BACK AS VIZ GETS SERENA BACK TO HER FEET! VIZ DELIVERS A LONG KISS TO SERENA’S HEAD!
CJ Hana: SOSA Henderson is not going to like that one bit as he probably knows that Serena Bennett can handle herself! Serena is stumbling on her feet, but Viz with the Kiss to the Head! The bullhammer elbow strike —
Gavin Kirkland: NO! TYLER WOLFE COMES AT THE VISUAL PROPHET WITH AN FOREARM TO VISUAL PROPHET! VIZ IS DOWN! TYLER GETS VIZ IN POSITION! TYLER IS GOING FOR THE MOVE THAT SHE DELIVERED TO STEPHANIE MATSUDA EARLIER IN THIS MATCH — THAT CANADIAN DESTROYER! BINGO. HALL. MASSACRE. THE MOVE CONNECTS ON THE VISUAL PROPHET AS TYLER THROWS HIM OVER THE TOP ROPE!
Nina Dobrev (no mic): I CAUGHT BAE! BAE STILL IN THE MATCH!
CJ Hana: NINA DOBREV JUST CAUGHT THE VISUAL PROPHET! WHO KNEW THAT THIS WOMAN HAD THAT STRENGTH IN HER? WELL, NINA IS TRAINING TO BECOME A WRESTLER HERSELF! SHE NEEDED TO THINK QUICK ON HER FEET! TYLER WOLFE IS PISSED OFF! THAT BINGO HALL MASSACRE SHOULD HAVE BEEN ENOUGH TO ELIMINATE VIZ FROM THE MATCH! TYLER IS DEMANDING FOR NINA TO PUT VIZ ON THE APRON AND FOR HIM TO GET BACK IN THE RING! But, Nina is not doing that and Tyler can’t exit the ring without getting herself eliminated from the match! Nina sits Viz on top of our announcer’s table! Viz’ feet hasn’t touched the floor, so he’s not eliminated yet! But, it looks like we’re going to introduced the seventeenth woman in this match… or at least, I hope it’s a woman!
(“Big Bad Wolf” — In This Moment blasts through the speakers as Minerva comes out with a series look on her face. She takes a glimpse of the scenery around her before setting her eyes on Cleopatra in the ring.)
(SCREEN BAR #17 — Minerva.)
Gavin Kirkland: IT’S CONSTANCE BLEVINS!
CJ Hana: That’s Minerva, you dumb idiot.
Gavin Kirkland: The mother of my children wants Minerva in the ring! Cleopatra is ready for Minerva! Minerva has her first target in this match as she goes right after Cleopatra! Minerva runs towards the ring and underneath the bottom rope before looking at Cleopatra face-to-face! Minerva and the Queen’s Court have had issues with each other these past few weeks! Minerva is going into this match with hopes that she can eliminate at least one of the members of the Queen’s Court! CLEOPATRA USES HER HAND TO SHOVE MINERVA’S FACE AWAY FROM HER — MINERVA HAS HOLD OF CLEOPATRA’S RIGHT HAND AS SHE BEGINS TO BITE IT! WHAT THE HELL IS SHE? A RABID WOLVERINE? CLEOPATRA CRIES OUT IN PAIN AS SHE GRASPS ONTO HER HAND! MINERVA GETS CLEOPATRA’S OTHER ARM BEFORE DELIVERING A HIPTOSS, BUT MINERVA HAS A HOLD OF CLEOPATRA’S OTHER HAND? MINERVA HAS CLEOPATRA BY HER FINGERS AS SHE SHUSHES THE CROWD AS THEY DO SO IN COMMAND!
CJ Hana: MINERVA BREAKS CLEOPATRA’S FINGERS! CLEOPATRA YELPS IN PAIN AS SHE HOLDS ONTO HER FINGERS! MINERVA HAS A HUGE GRIN ON HER FACE! MINERVA GETS IN FRONT OF CLEOPATRA BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A PENALTY KICK AS THAT TAKES THE FORMER VIXENS WORLD CHAMPION TO HER BACK! MINERVA GETS ON TOP OF CLEOPATRA BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A SERIES OF CLOSED FISTS PUNCHES ONTO CLEOPATRA’S FOREHEAD! MINERVA GETS CLEOPATRA BACK UP TO HER FEET BEFORE GETTING A GOOD HOLD OF CLEOPATRA BEFORE WHIPPING HER TOWARDS THE ROPES! But, Cleopatra has her feet on the ground as she counters her whip as Minerva goes bouncing from the ropes in order to connect with Lou Thesz press on Cleopatra! Once again, Minerva is connecting with a series of punches! She is not holding back in this Grand Rampage match! Minerva gets Cleopatra to an all fours position! It seems like Cleopatra is slowly rising back to her feet as Minerva bounces from the ropes and connects with scissors kick! The scissors kick connects on Cleopatra as she goes down! Cleopatra is grasping to her neck in pain as Minerva gets Cleopatra and tosses her over the top rope!
Gavin Kirkland: CLEOPATRA MANAGES TO FALL ONTO THE APRON, BUT SHE IS CLUTCHING TO THE BOTTOM ROPE! MINERVA IS TRYING TO PUSH CLEOPATRA OFF THE APRON AND GET HERSELF AN ELIMINATION IN THIS MATCH! HOLD ON FOR DEAR LIFE, CLEOPATRA! JUST LIKE I WILL HOLD ON TO THE LOVE THAT I HAVE FOR YOU, BABY! DO NOT LET ME DOWN! YOU NEED TO STAY IN THIS THING OR ELSE I’LL CRY. :mjcry:
CJ Hana: As Cleopatra is holding onto the bottom rope with dear life, we are about to introduce our eighteenth woman into this match!
(“O Father O Satan O Sun” — Behemoth plays through the speakers as the crowd waits for the anticipation of Sian Ryder. A few moments pass by and no sign of Sian.)
Gavin Kirkland: Sian Ryder is the eighteenth woman in this Grand Rampage Match, but there is no sign of her!
(BACKSTAGE: Amber Keys is seen beating the living daylights out of Sian Ryder. Amber connects with a series of punches towards Sian’s face before getting Sian back to her feet and throwing her head first against the wall! Sian’s head goes bouncing back as Amber gets Sian back to her feet before throwing her head first against the wall again.)
CJ Hana: THAT’S AMBER KEYS! SHE WASN’T ANNOUNCED TO TAKE PART OF THIS GRAND RAMPAGE MATCH! BUT, HERE SHE IS BEATING THE LIVING HELL OUT OF SIAN RYDER! AMBER HAS SIAN BACK TO HER FEET AS AMBER APPLIES A CHOKEHOLD ON SIAN! SIAN IS TRYING TO FIGHT THE CHOKE HOLD, BUT SHE HAS NO WAY TO DEFEND HERSELF! SHE WAS ATTACKED FROM BEHIND! SIAN IS FADING AS AMBER DROPS SIAN TO THE GROUND! AMBER GETS ON TOP OF A TABLE BEFORE STANDING HERSELF UP! SHE IS GESTURING FOR SIAN RYDER TO GET BACK TO HER FEET. SIAN SLOWLY MAKES IT BACK TO HER FEET BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A MAJOR KEYS, THE DIVING CORKSCREW STUNNER AS SIAN FALLS BACK HEAD FIRST.
(A bunch of medical personal is surrounding Sian Ryder as there are a few security guards that are yelling at Amber Keys to get away from the scene.)
Amber Keys: F*ck you. I’m taking her spot.
(Amber Keys walks away from the scene as she is heading straight for the ring.)
Gavin Kirkland: AMBER KEYS IS GOING TO BE IN THE GRAND RAMPAGE!
(“All It Takes For Your Dreams to Come True” — A Skylit Drive as the crowd boos the living hell out of Amber Keys walking out from the curtain. She is giving a death glare to Minerva, who shifts her focus from Cleopatra! With that, Cleopatra manages to sneak her way back into the ring.)
(SCREEN BAR #18 — Amber Keys.)
CJ Hana: It seems like the Queen’s Court has planned for this to happen! The timing could not be any better as Amber Keys stands on the bottom of the ramp! She is having a war of words with Minerva! Minerva is demanding for Amber to step into the ring against her!
Gavin Kirkland: CLEOPATRA ATTACKS MINERVA FROM BEHIND! AMBER KEYS SLIDES UNDERNEATH THE BOTTOM ROPE AS SHE JOINS CLEOPATRA INS STOMPING MINERVA! THE CROWD IS HATING EVERY SECOND OF THEM, BUT DON’T LISTEN TO THEM, QUEENS! KEEP DOING YOU, AMBER. WHILE, I’LL KEEP DOING CLEOPATRA! AMBER INSTRUCTS FOR CLEOPATRA TO GET MINERVA BACK TO HER FEET AS CLEOPATRA DOES THAT WITH NO HESITATION AT ALL! Amber and Cleopatra get Minerva in position before connecting with a double suplex on Minerva! Amber takes a few steps back before getting gesturing for Minerva to make it back to her feet! I think we’re going to get an Amber Alert here, CJ! Minerva rises back to her feet before turning herself around. AMBER RUNS AT MINERVA BEFORE CONNECTING WITH AN AMBER ALERT! THAT DEADLY SPEAR AS I’M SURPRISE THAT DOESN’T BREAK MINERVA IN HALF! CLEOPATRA NOW GETS AMBER BEFORE APPLYING THE CLEO LOCK ON “THE GYPSY MOTH”! MINERVA IS TRAPPED IN THAT BEAUTIFUL VERSION OF THE JETTA LOCK! MINERVA IS CRYING OUT IN PAIN, BUT THIS IS A BRILLIANT PLAN FROM THE QUEEN’S COURT! THEY’RE GOING TO MAKE SURE THAT MINERVA PASSES OUT DUE TO THE PAIN BEFORE THROWING HER OUT OF THE RING! BUT, MINERVA FADES AWAY ALMOST INSTANTLY!
CJ Hana: CONSTANCE BLEVINS ATTACKS CLEOPATRA FROM BEHIND! AMBER KEYS COMES TO CLEOPATRA’S AID WITHOUT ASKING FOR IT! CONSTANCE BLEVINS GOES AFTER AMBER KEYS AS THAT WAS ENOUGH OF A DISTRACTION TO GET! CLEOPATRA GETS MINERVA BACK TO HER FEET, BUT MINERVA DELIVERS A DROPKICK TO CLEOPATRA’S LEGS AS CLEOPATRA FALLS TO HER KNEES! IT’S ALMOST LIKE MINERVA HAS GOTTEN HER SECOND WIND IN THIS MATCH — OR THAT SHE WAS PLAYING POSSUM ENOUGH TO CATCH CLEOPATRA OFF GUARD WITH THE MOVE! Minerva gets Cleopatra and begins to gauge her eyes out! She did this during their match about three weeks ago! Minerva takes Cleopatra to the corner and begins to stomp away on her stomach. Meanwhile, Constance has Amber at another corner! This is a smart approach with how to deal with the Queen’s Court! Separate them as much as you can! Cleopatra and Amber thrive on working together as a collective unit and having that to their advantage! CONSTANCE GETS AMBER IN POSITION BEFORE LOCKING IN THAT CTO — CONSTANCE TAP OUT ON THE FORMER EMPIRE TAG TEAM CHAMPION! AMBER IS CRYING OUT IN PAIN! MEANWHILE, MINERVA GETS CLEOPATRA IN POSITION BEFORE CONNECTING WITH TPK — THE PRINCESS KILLER — THAT SPINNING TOMBSTONE PILEDRIVER ON CLEOPATRA! MINERVA GETS CLEOPATRA BEFORE THROWING HER OVER THE TOP ROPE!
Maria Del Rey: Cleopatra has been eliminated!
Gavin Kirkland: …
CJ Hana: AN ELIMINATION FOR MINERVA, BUT SHE DOESN’T STOP HER! SHE PUSHES CONSTANCE BLEVINS TO THE SIDE BEFORE GETTING HER HANDS ON AMBER KEYS BEFORE THROWING HER OVER THE TOP ROPE AS WELL! AMBER FALLS OUT OF THE RING NEXT TO HER PARTNER!
Maria Del Rey: Amber Keys has been eliminated!
CJ Hana: Gavin, are you alright?
Gavin Kirkland: I hate life. :mjcry:
CJ Hana: The clock is counting down! We have two women left to enter this match. Who will be the next one?
(“Party Goin’ Dumb” — Rico Nasty beings to play…)
Gavin Kirkland: Is this legit happening right now?
CJ Hana: This is an interesting surprise! We haven’t seen her in a while!
(Her first appearance since King of Elite, Astraea Jordan stands on top of the ramp as she takes in the scenery around here. The crowd is giving her a pretty good ovation as she never expected herself to be in this position, but she is more than excited to take part in this historic moment.)
(SCREEN BAR #19 — Astraea Jordan.)
Gavin Kirkland: Astraea Jordan is our nineteenth participant in this match! We haven’t seen her in two months. It seems like that loss at King of Elite really got the best out of her, but it seems like she is back for just tonight! Astraea Jordan has her eyes set on that ring! She knows how insane it’s going to be! We have seven eliminations so far into this match! Astraea runs down that ring and slides underneath the ring ropes and enters the match! She goes right after Minerva and throws her over the top rope, but Minerva is able to catch herself on the ramp! Astraea was trying to get an easy elimination there, but with the competition as good as Empire’s, there is no such thing as an easy elimination! CONSTANCE BLEVINS GOES RIGHT AFTER ASTRAEA, BUT ASTRAEA MANAGES TO PICK UP CONSTANCE BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A MILITARY PRESS BEFORE THROWING CONSTANCE BEHIND HER! CONSTANCE LANDS STOMACH FIRST AS SHE ROLLS ONTO HER BACK, BUT ASTRAEA CONNECTS WITH THE POWER OF EQUALITY, THAT ELEVATED DOUBLE FOOT STOMP ON CONSTANCE! KARINA-ANN GOES RIGHT AFTER ASTRAEA, BUT ASTRAEA MANAGES TO CONNECT WITH A HIP TOSS ONTO CONSTANCE! CELES DUMONT GOES AFTER ASTRAEA, BUT ASTRAEA CONNECTS WITH THE FREE SMOKE! THE REVERSE ROUNDHOUSE KICK CONNECTS ON CELES, WHICH KNOCKS HER DOWN IN THE PROCESS!
CJ Hana: Astraea Jordan begins to hype the crowd up before noticing Serena Bennett standing across from her! Serena has a victory over Astraea and Astraea would love nothing more than to redeem herself from that. By throwing Serena over the top rope, she takes out the woman, who has been in this match from the very start! The two women begin to trash talk to one another! ASTRAEA KNEES SERENA IN THE STOMACH BEFORE CONNECTING WITH AN UPPERCUT! SERENA STUMBLES ON THE ROPES AS ASTRAEA GETS SERENA’S HAND BEFORE WHIPPING HER TO THE OTHER SET OF ROPES, BUT SERENA COUNTERS THAT WHIP AS ASTRAEA GOES BOUNCING OFF THOSE ROPES AND CONNECTS WITH A SPEAR TO SERENA BENNETT! ASTRAEA GETS HERSELF BACK TO HER FEET BEFORE LOOKING INTO THE EYES OF TYLER WOLFE! THE TWO WOMEN BEGIN TO THROW FOREARMS AT EACH OTHER! BOTH ARE PROBABLY THE STRONGEST WOMEN IN THIS MATCH! BOTH WOMEN CAN BE HARD HITTING WHEN THEY NEED TO BE! TYLER KNEES ASTRAEA IN THE STOMACH BEFORE GETTING HER IN POSITION BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A RIPCORD ROLLING ELBOW AS ASTRAEA GOES DOWN! THE ANTICIPATION IS KILLING ME, GAVIN! WE ARE ABOUT TO INTRODUCE OUR LAST WOMAN IN THIS HISTORIC GRAND RAMPAGE MATCH!

(The crowd EXPLODES as Empire General Manager, Kendra Shamez makes her way from the back and stands on top of the ramp. Kendra embraces the scenery. She knows how historic this moment is and is fortunate enough to take part of it.)
(SCREEN BAR #20 — Kendra Shamez.)
Gavin Kirkland: They saved the best for last, CJ! Kendra Shamez is a blonde, but she is an EAW legend. She is someone who took part in the women’s revolution in EAW. She is the OG Vixen. A former three-time Vixens Champion, former Specialists Champion, an EAW Hall of Famer! We are not worthy of being in her presence!
CJ Hana: Tyler Wolfe has a sinister look on her face! She managed to take down Kendra Shamez last week on Empire, but to do it in the ring would be so fantastic for her! Kendra would be getting a personal look as Tyler winning the Grand Rampage match! It would be a middle finger to Kendra if Tyler were to win! Kendra is taking her time with entering the match! Tyler is demanding for Kendra to get into the ring! Tyler is looking for a fight!
Gavin Kirkland: THE VISUAL PROPHET STRIKES TYLER WOLFE FROM BEHIND! HE WAS NEVER ELIMINATED FROM THE MATCH LADIES AND GENTLEMEN! VIZ WAS LOOKING FOR THE MOST PERFECT OPPORTUNITY TO ENTER THIS MATCH! CATCHING TYLER OFF GUARD WAS THE ONE MOVE THAT HE NEEDED! VIZ GETS TYLER BACK TO HER FEET! VIZ WITH A DROPKICK AS HE SENDS TYLER TO HER KNEES! VIZ CONNECTS WITH A RUNNING KNEE STRIKE AS HE TAKES TYLER TO HER BACK! THIS IS FOLLOWED BY A LIONSAULT BY KENDRA ONTO TYLER! The Empire General Manager still has it! But, I don’t think that she ever lost it! Kendra gets Tyler back up to her feet as she connects with a knife edge chop to Tyler’s chest! Tyler connects with a knife edge chop to Kendra’s chest! Kendra with a knife edge chop to Tyler! Tyler with a knife edge chop to Kendra! Kendra! Tyler! Kendra! Tyler! Kendra! Tyler! Kendra! Kendra! Kendra! She back Tyler onto the corner! Kendra places her foot against Tyler’s throat as she hold it there! Tyler is dangling off her feet as Kendra is using those long legs of hers to her advantage! Kendra releases her hold as Tyler is holding onto her throat as she stumbles forward, but Kendra pushes Tyler against the corner before stomping on her stomach! Kendra takes a few steps back as she waits for Tyler to get back up and away from the corner! THE BITCH TREATMENT — THE JUMPING CUTTER ON TYLER WOLFE! TYLER IS DOWN! HARLOW REICHERT GOES AFTER KENDRA, BUT A BITCH TREATMENT TO HARLOW! CONSTANCE BLEVINS GOES AFTER KENDRA, BUT A BITCH TREATMENT TO HER, TOO! MINERVA GOES AFTER KENDRA, BUT A BITCH TREATMENT TO HER! ASTRAEA JORDAN GETS A BITCH TREATMENT AS WELL! CELES DUMONT GETS A BITCH TREATMENT! KARINA-ANN GETS A BITCH TREATMENT AS WELL!
CJ Hana: THIS WOMAN IS LEGIT DESTROYING HER ROSTER AT THE MOMENT! KENDRA SHAMEZ HAS SOMETHING TO PROVE GOING INTO THIS MATCH! SHE’S MORE THAN ONE OF THE OLDEST WOMEN IN THE LOCKER ROOM! SHE STILL HAS SO MUCH IN THE TANK! KENDRA DOES A KIP UP AS SHE GETS HERSELF BACK UP TO HER FEET!
Crowd: YOU STILL GOT IT! :clap: :clap: :clap:
Kendra Shamez (no mic): I never lost it!
Gavin Kirkland: ANDREA VALENTINE STANDS UP AS SHE IS STARING AT KENDRA SHAMEZ! THIS IS ONE OF THE HOTTEST CONFRONTATIONS THAT WE WILL HAVE IN THIS MATCH! BOTH OF THEM BLONDE AND POWERFUL! THE TWO WOMEN ARE GRINNING AT EACH OTHER! ALMOST AS IF ANDREA IS A FAMILIAR FACE, OR REMINDS KENDRA A LITTLE BIT OF HERSELF IN THE PAST! NOT SURE WHY, BUT IT MUST BE THE BLONDE. :thinking: Kendra goes after Andrea with a spear, but Andrea manages to duck the spear, but Kendra gets a good hold of Andrea’s waist — German suplex, but Andrea manages to catch herself on her feet! Kendra is on her knees as Andrea goes right after Kendra before connecting with a Love Haze! The running corkscrew neckbreaker! Andrea Valentine takes down the Empire General Manager! ANDREA GETS UP AS FELIX HARTLEY RUNS TOWARDS ANDREA BEFORE CONNECTING WITH ASS, CLASS & SASS — THE TILT-A-WHIRL HEADSCISSORS AS SHE FLIPS ANDREA AROUND! BEFORE FELIX CAN HAVE TIME TO REST, CELES DUMONT GOES AFTER FELIX BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A DEVIL TRIGGER — THE HIGH IMPACT ROUNDHOUSE KICK, BUT FELIX DUCKS THE DEVIL TRIGGER! SHE CONNECTS WITH A MULE KICK ON CELES BEFORE CONNECTING WITH #BADBITCH — THAT TWISTED ARM DRAG TAKEDOWN ON CELES! FELIX GETS CELES AND THROWS HER OVER THE TOP ROPE! FINALLY, THAT THING IS GONE!
Maria Del Rey: Celes Dumont has been eliminated!
CJ Hana: Felix Hartley gets turned around by Karina-Ann! Karina-Ann’s only alliance in this match has just been eliminated! She is on her own going into this match as she connects with a huge slap across Felix’s cheek! But, Felix turns herself around before connecting with a throat punch as that staggers Karina-Ann back a bit! Karina-Ann goes right after Felix, but Felix connects with a big boot as Karina-Ann is down! ANDREA VALENTINE GOES AFTER FELIX HARTLEY BY CONNECTING WITH A DIVING SOMERSAULT! WHAT A BEAUTIFUL MOVE AS SHE MANAGES TO TAKE DOWN FELIX WITH THAT MOVE! BOTH OF THESE WOMEN ARE DOWN! MEANWHILE, WE FOCUS ON HARLOW REICHERT, WHO IS FOCUSING ON KARINA-ANN AT ONE OF THE CORNERS! HARLOW RUNS TOWARDS KARINA-ANN BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A HESITATION DROPKICK THAT SENDS KARINA-ANN BACK TO ONE OF THE CORNERS! HARLOW PICKS UP KARINA-ANN BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A SAITO SUPLEX! HARLOW GETS KARINA-ANN IN POSITION BEFORE CONNECTING WITH AN OMG PLZ TAP — THE BRIDGING FUJIWARA ARMBAR! KARINA-ANN IS TAPPING OUT! BUT, LIKE IT HAS BEEN MENTIONED QUITE A FEW TIMES IN THIS MATCH — THE ONLY WAY TO WIN IS TO ELIMINATE YOUR COMPETITORS OVER THE TOP ROPE! THE MORE THAT HARLOW KEEPS THE SUBMISSION LOCKED IN, THE MORE CHANCES THAT KARINA-ANN COULD HAVE HER ARM SNAPPED! HARLOW RELEASES THE ARMBAR, BUT IT SEEMS LIKE THE DAMAGE HAS BEEN DONE! HARLOW GETS KARINA-ANN AND THROWS HER OVER THE TOP ROPE!
Maria Del Rey: Karina-Ann has been eliminated!
Gavin Kirkland: Can we stop eliminating the blondes??!?!?
CJ Hana: Astraea Jordan and The Visual Prophet are on the edge of the apron as the two of them are throwing shots at one another! Both of them are having quite a difficult time balancing off the apron! I think there’s a high chance that our next elimination is going to be either of these two! Astraea delivers a forearm to Viz, but Viz throws a forearm back to Astraea! With the two of them, these two teeter on the apron! This doesn’t look safe, Gavin! I’m not sure that I’m going to be able to watch this! Astraea with a forearm as that makes Viz stagger back! Astraea with another forearm! And another one! And another one! Viz stumbles back, but he has his grasp on the ropes! If he lets go of those ropes, he is out of this match! ASTRAEA KNEES VIZ IN THE STOMACH AS VIZ FALLS TO HIS KNEES! BUT, VIZ HAS A HUGE GRIN ON HIS FACE! HE IS GESTURING FOR ASTRAEA JORDAN TO HIT HIM HARDER! ASTRAEA IS LOOKING AT VIZ WITH CONFUSION AS SHE BEGINS TO MOUNT HIM WITH A SERIES OF PUNCHES! VIZ IS ENJOYING THIS PAIN! ASTRAEA SEES THAT VIZ IS NOT FALLING TO HIS BACK! ASTRAEA CONNECTS WITH A SUPERKICK AS THAT TAKES VIZ TO HIS BACK! THE SUPERKICK STUMBLES ASTRAEA AS WELL ON THE APRON, BUT SHE GOES TO PICK VIZ UP TO HIS FEET —
Gavin Kirkland: THE VISUAL PROPHET WITH THE KISS TO THE HEAD, THAT BULL HAMMER ELBOW STRIKE OUT OF NOWHERE AS THAT DROPS ASTRAEA JORDAN OUT OF THE RING! ASTRAEA IS OUT!
Maria Del Rey: Astraea Jordan has been eliminated!
Gavin Kirkland: The Visual Prophet sneaks an elimination of his own! He was playing possum! I think he may have a clear shot at winning this match, CJ! Viz admires his handy work as Astraea Jordan is out cold, BUT TYLER WOLFE ENDS UP GETTING VIZ BY HIS HEAD AND DRAGGING HIM BACK INSIDE THE RING! TYLER THAT THAT SHE HAD ELIMINATED VIZ FROM THE MATCH EARLIER ON, BUT HE WAS CAUGHT BY NINA! TYLER GETS VIZ INSIDE THE RING BY PULLING HIM THROUGH THE MIDDLE ROW OF THE ROPES!
(The Visual Prophet falls onto the middle of the ring. Surrounding him are just some of the most powerful women on the Empire roster — Tyler Wolfe, Serena Bennett and Andrea Valentine. These three may not like each other much, but they hate Viz a lot more. The Visual Prophet is trying to stand his ground as the three women look at each other, puzzled at what to do. )
The Visual Prophet (no mic): SAY MY NAME! ALL OF YOU, SLUTS! SAY MY —
CJ Hana: TYLER WOLFE JUST CONNECTED WITH A SUPERKICK AT THE VISUAL PROPHET AS THAT SENDS HIM STUMBLING BACK AS ANDREA VALENTINE CONNECTS WITH DROPKICK TO VIZ’ BACK, WHICH SENDS HIM FORWARD ONTO A SOMERSAULT CLOTHESLINE BY SERENA BENNETT! VIZ FINDS HIS WAY BACK UP TO HIS FEET, BUT ANDREA GETS HERSELF IN POSITION BEFORE CONNECTING WITH XOXO— THE INVERTED STOMP FACEBREAKER ON VIZ! THAT MAKES HIM FALL BACK, BUT ANDREA GETS VIZ BY HIS ANKLES AND TRIPS HIM TO HIS KNEES! SERENA RUNS AFTER VIZ BY CONNECTING WITH MOONLIGHT — THAT SPINNING NECKBREAKER! VIZ FINDS HIMSELF BACK UP TO HIS FEET AS TYLER MANAGES TO GET VIZ ONTO HER SHOULDERS! THAT STRENGTH! TYLER WOLFE WITH THE LIBERAL AGENDA! THE RACKBOMB CONNECTS ON THE VISUAL PROPHET AS TYLER THROWS VIZ OVER THE TOP ROPE!
Maria Del Rey: The Visual Prophet has been eliminated!
Gavin Kirkland: NOT FAIR, CJ! IT TOOK THREE OF THE BEST TALENTS ON EMPIRE TO ELIMINATE OUR FACE OF EMPIRE! FROM THE MOMENT HE WAS PART OF THE MATCH, HE HAD A TARGET ON HIS BACK! HOW DARE HE TAKE PART OF THIS MATCH KNOWING THAT HE HAD MADE SO MANY ENEMIES?? SERENA BENNETT ATTACKS ANDREA VALENTINE FROM BEHIND — DO YOU NOT SEE HOW MUCH OF A SNAKE SERENA IS, CJ? SHE USED ANDREA FOR HER PERSONAL GAIN AND WHEN SHE WAS DONE WITH ANDREA, BAM! ATTACK! THIS WOMAN IS GREEDY! SERENA GETS ANDREA BY HER HEAD BEFORE SLAMMING HER HEAD FIRST AGAINST THE CORNER! SERENA BEGINS TO DO THE WITH THE SHITS — THE TWO SHOOT KICKS FOLLOWED BY A JUMPING BACK KICK COMBO! Meanwhile, we shift our attention with that as Kendra Shamez manages to get Tyler Wolfe onto another corner as she delivers a nasty knife edge chop to Tyler’s chest! Tyler yelps in pain as Kendra connects with another knife edge chop! And another one! And another one! Kendra gets Tyler by her arm before pulling Tyler closer! Kendra with a clothesline, but Tyler manages to duck down Kendra’s clothesline before connect with a clothesline on The OG! KENDRA STUMBLES BACK AS TYLER GETS KENDRA ON HER SHOULDERS! TYLER IS GOING TO GO FOR THE SAME MOVE THAT SHE JUST USED ON VIZ — THE LIBERAL AGENDA! KENDRA IS PLANTED ON THE FLOOR AS TYLER GETS ON THE TOP TURNBUCKLE AS SHE IS LOOKING AT HER HOMETOWN CROWD, WHO IS BEHIND HER ONE HUNDRED PERCENT BEFORE — PAINT IT RED! THE DOUBLE FOOT STOMP ON KENDRA SHAMEZ! TYLER GETS KENDRA’S BODY BEFORE THROWING HER OVER THE TOP ROPE!
Maria Del Rey: Kendra Shamez has been eliminated!
CJ Hana: Our last surprise entrant in this Women’s Grand Rampage Match has been eliminated! Kendra Shamez did fantastic in this match! Andrea Valentine, La Halcón, Constance Blevins, Felix Hartley, Harlow Reichert, Serena Bennett and Tyler Wolfe are the women remaining in this match! Which of these seven women will face the Women’s World Champion at Pain for Pride! Andrea Valentine goes right after La Halcón! Andrea got a victory over La Halcón on Empire last week! La Halcón would love to bounce back from that victory and win this Grand Rampage Match! Andrea runs towards La Halcón, who connects with an arm drag takedown on Andrea! La Halcón has Andrea by her right arm before connecting with the armbar! Andrea is fighting for the move not to be locked in! She can’t afford to take so much punishment at this point in the match! All of these women have been here for quite a long time, but that’s the downfall of being part of these matches! These women are normally on their second, third winds! Andrea is trying to roll herself out of the armbar! La Halcón is doing her best to make sure that Andrea does not do that at all! Andrea makes it back to her feet, but La Halcón is trying to pull Andrea back down in order to lock in the armbar! Andrea is trying to use whatever strength she can use to break free her arm! This is not looking good, Gavin!
Gavin Kirkland: The beautiful and blonde Andrea Valentine manages to get her arm away from La Halcón! Andrea stumbles back in response to that, but manages to catch herself before falling back! La Halcón gets back to her feet as well, but Andrea manages to knock La Halcón down with a Lou Thesz press on La Halcón! Andrea begins to fire away with some punches before getting herself up! Andrea would love nothing more than to win this match! Andrea has gotten some eliminations of her own and would love nothing more than to eliminate La Halcón from the match! ANDREA GESTURES FOR LA HALCÓN TO MAKE IT BACK TO HER FEET AS SHE DOES SO SLOWLY! ANDREA RUNS TOWARDS LA HALCÓN BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A DOUBLE-KNEE FACEBREAKER! LA HALCÓN FALLS BACK INSTANTLY! ANDREA MANAGES TO CATCH LA HALCÓN BY HER ARM BEFORE CONNECTING WITH AN XOXO! LA HALCÓN FALLS BACK AS ANDREA GETS LA HALCÓN ONCE AGAIN BEFORE GETTING ON HER SHOULDERS! ATOMIC BLONDE ON LA HALCÓN! THE MOVE CONNECTS AS ANDREA THROWS LA HALCÓN OVER THE TOP ROPE!
Maria Del Rey: La Halcón has been eliminated!
CJ Hana: ANOTHER ELIMINATION FROM ANDREA VALENTINE! MEANWHILE, WE SHIFT OUR ATTENTION TO FELIX HARTLEY AND CONSTANCE BLEVINS! CONSTANCE CONNECTS WITH A HEADBUTT THAT KNOCKS FELIX BACK A BIT, BUT FELIX GOES BACK AT HER WITH A FOREARM, BUT CONSTANCE CONNECTS WITH ANOTHER HEADBUTT! FELIX WITH A FOREARM! CONSTANCE WITH A HEADBUTT! FELIX! CONSTANCE! FELIX! CONSTANCE! FELIX! CONSTANCE! CONSTANCE! CONSTANCE! CONSTANCE GETS FELIX BACKED TO THE CORNER BEFORE GETTING FELIX BY HER ARM! CONSTANCE WHIPS FELIX TO THE OTHER CORNER, BUT FELIX MANAGES TO STOP HERSELF ON HER TRACKS BEFORE WHIPPING CONSTANCE AT THE CORNER! CONSTANCE’S BACK CRASHES AGAINST THE CORNER! FELIX HANDSPRINGS HERSELF TOWARDS THE CORNER BEFORE DELIVERING A BACK ELBOW TO CONSTANCE’S FACE! CONSTANCE STUMBLES FORWARD AS FELIX FOLLOWS UP THAT ELBOW WITH #BADBITCH! Constance falls to her back as Felix rolls Constance to her stomach before connecting with cattle mutilation! Constance is screaming in pain! This is probably one of the more difficult moves to get out of! Constance is desperately trying to get out of this move! Constance has made it to this point in the match and would hate to throw it all away! Felix has that move executed perfectly!
Gavin Kirkland: I love a woman who can execute moves perfectly! Felix Hartley releases the hold on Constance Blevins! For the time the move was applied, it seemed like it did some damage, but it’s going to be difficult to put someone like Constance down! Felix is going to need to put Constance down for good! Felix gets Constance back up to her feet before getting her in position for the #MeTooMovement — that Canadian destroyer! If Felix connects with this, I don’t see how Constance can get herself backup!
CJ Hana: But, Constance Blevins is blocking the move from happening! Felix Hartley is getting frustrated, but Constance uses whatever strength that she has to flip Felix over! Felix lands in a seated position! Constance gets in front of her before bouncing off the ropes and connecting with a low dropkick that sends Felix to her back! CONSTANCE GETS FELIX BACK TO HER FEET BEFORE GETTING HER IN POSITION FOR THE LIONESSPRIDE — THE SWINGING LEG HOOK FIREMAN’S CARRY SLAM, BUT FELIX MANAGES TO TURN HERSELF AROUND AND KICKS CONSTANCE IN THE STOMACH! FELIX HARTLEY PULLS CONSTANCE BLEVINS CLOSER BEFORE CONNECTING WITH DOGGY STYLE — THAT SPRINGBOARD BULLDOG! FELIX GETS CONSTANCE BEFORE THROWING HER OVER THE TOP ROPE! CONSTANCE FALLS TO THE FLOOR!
Maria Del Rey: Constance Blevins has been eliminated!
Gavin Kirkland: Andrea Valentine and Harlow Reichert trading shots at one another! Harlow has done amazingly well with getting five eliminations in this match! She has managed to make it farther than most people believe that she would! Andrea throws a forearm, which staggers Harlow back. HARLOW THROWS A FOREARM THAT STAGGERS ANDREA BACK! ANDREA WITH A FOREARM TO HARLOW! HARLOW! ANDREA! HARLOW! ANDREA! HARLOW! HARLOW! HARLOW! HARLOW PULLS ANDREA IN BEFORE GETTING ANDREA UP IN THE AIR! IT SEEMS LIKE HARLOW IS GOING TO POWERBOMB ANDREA OUTSIDE OF THE RING! THIS IS AN INTERESTING WAY TO ELIMINATE THE FORMER SPECIALISTS CHAMPION! ANDREA PUNCHES THE TOP OF HARLOW’S HEAD! SHE IS HOPING THAT IT MAKES IT EASIER FOR ANDREA TO GET OUT OF HARLOW’S GRASP! HARLOW GETS ANDREA UP BEFORE POWERBOMBING HER OUTSIDE THE RING!
CJ Hana: But, Andrea Valentine is holding on! Andrea is refusing to let go! She refuses to let her dreams of facing the Women’s World Champion at Pain for Pride slip from her grasps! Harlow Reichert goes to powerbomb Andrea again, but Andrea is dangling upside down! Andrea is starting to lose balance! She knows if she lets go of the position she is at, then she’ll be eliminated! Andrea is so close to slipping! Andrea just needs to hold on a little longer, but Harlow manages to get Andrea up before powerbombing her down —
Gavin Kirkland: ANDREA VALENTINE COUNTERS WITH AN ATOMIC BLONDE! THE REVERSE FRANKENSTEINER ON HARLOW REICHERT! ANDREA JUST USED HER STRENGTH TO THROW HARLOW OVER THE TOP ROPE! HARLOW IS OUT!
Maria Del Rey: Harlow Reichert has been eliminated!
Gavin Kirkland: You can see the ring started to have as little talent as possible! Andrea Valentine, Felix Hartley, Tyler Wolfe, Serena Bennett and Minerva all remain in this match! Minerva has Serena Bennett backed away towards the ropes! MINERVA IS TRYING TO GODGE THE EYE OUT OF SERENA! I’M NORMALLY AGAINST ALL OF THIS; HOWEVER, I WILL MAKE AN EXCEPTION BECAUSE SHE’S DOING IT ON SERENA! SERENA IS TRYING TO PUSH MINERVA’S FACE AWAY FROM HER! MINERVA IS HOLDING HER GROUND, BUT SERENA CLAWS MINERVA IN THE EYES AS WELL! SERENA KICKS MINERVA IN THE STOMACH, WHICH CREATES SOME DISTANCE BETWEEN THE TWO WOMEN! Serena gets on the top turnbuckle before jumping off of it and connecting with a meteora! She manages to knock Minerva to her back as the former Specialists Champion is throwing a series of punches to “The Gypsy Moth”! Minerva rolls herself on top of Serena before throwing some punches at her! Yes! Go for the face! Serena rolls herself on top of Minerva again before throwing some punches! These two women are brawling with each other! Minerva gets Serena Bennett by her hair before getting her position — Seeds of Evil, Minerva’s own version of the fisherman’s buster! Serena goes down as Minerva gets Serena by her hair before throwing her over the top rope! Buh-bye to that traitor!
CJ Hana: Serena Bennett manages to catch herself on the apron! Minerva turns around as she runs to shoulder ram Serena out of the ring, but Serena manages to catch Minerva in between the ropes before connecting with a series of knees to Minerva’s head! Minerva’s head goes bouncing back after each other! Serena is so close to the edge of the apron! One wrong move and she could find herself potentially eliminated! Serena throws Minerva’s head back inside the ring as Serena gets inside the ring as well! SHE RUNS TOWARDS MINERVA BEFORE CONNECTING WITH REEL IT IN! MINERVA GOES TURNING AROUND LIKE A TOP! MINERVA FINDS HER WAY BACK UP TO HER FEET BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A DRAGON WHIP! MINERVA FINDS HERSELF ON HER KNEES AFTER THAT NASTY MOVE! SERENA RUNS TOWARDS MINERVA BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A SOMERSAULT CLOTHESLINE AS THAT TAKES MINERVA DOWN! SERENA GETS MINERVA AND THROWS HER OVER THE TOP ROPE!
Gavin Kirkland: MINERVA MANAGES TO CATCH HERSELF ON THE APRON! SHE HAS A GRASP ON THE TOP ROPE AS SHE IS NOT REFUSING TO LET GO, BUT SERENA CONNECTING WITH A RUNNING DROPKICK AS THAT SENDS MINERVA FLYING OUT OF THE RING!
Maria Del Rey: Minerva has been eliminated!
CJ Hana: And, we’re done to the final four! Serena Bennett, Felix Hartley, Andrea Valentine and Tyler Wolfe. Serena looks exhausted, Gavin! She was part of this match in the very beginning! There is no idea how she is standing at this point of the match! Serena arrived at number one! Felix arrived at number nine! Andrea arrived at number ten! Tyler at number twelve! All four of these women entered the match at number twelve or less! Each of these women are having a stare down with each other at their respective corners! At this point of the match, each of them need to be extra careful. One mistake can cost them their chances of facing the Women’s World Champion at Pain for Pride! Serena Bennett and Tyler Wolfe brawl with each other. Felix Hartley and Andrea Valentine brawl with each other!
Gavin Kirkland: Sienna Jade and Raven Roberts have been focused on this entire match! Like it’s been stated, they know how important this match is! Either of them will be walking away with the Women’s World Championship tomorrow night! Andrea Valentine side hand chops Felix Hartley in the chest! Not that I was staring at her chest, but it’s kinda getting red at the moment. :eyes: Andrea gets Felix by her arm and goes to whip her from the ropes she’s at, but Felix counters that whip, BUT ANDREA MANAGES TO STOP HERSELF BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A HIPTOSS ON “ASS, CLASS & SASS”! FELIX FINDS HERSELF IN A SEATED POSITION BEFORE ANDREA GETS IN FRONT OF FELIX BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A LOW DROPKICK THAT SENDS FELIX TO HER BACK! ANDREA APPROACHES THE TOP TURNBUCKLE BEFORE GETTING HERSELF ON TOP OF IT! IT SEEMS LIKE WE’RE GOING TO SEE ANDREA GOT TOP ROPE! NOT SURE, IF THAT IS GOING TO BE A GOOD THING! ANDREA GETS HERSELF ON THE TOP ROPE AS SHE IS GESTURING FOR FELIX HARTLEY TO GET BACK TO HER FEET! ANDREA VALENTINE FROM THE TOP ROPE — V-DAY — THE TOP ROPE SOMERSAULT SENTON ON FELIX HARTLEY!
CJ Hana: FELIX HARTLEY STOPS ANDREA VALENTINE BEFORE SHE CONNECTS WITH V-DAY! FELIX IS BACK ON HER FEET AS SHE GETS ON THE TOP TURNBUCKLE! FELIX CONNECTS WITH A FOREARM TO ANDREA! ANDREA CONNECTS WITH A FOREARM TO FELIX! FELIX CONNECTS WITH A FOREARM TO ANDREA! ANDREA WITH A FOREARM TO FELIX! BOTH OF THESE WOMEN ARE TEETERING TO THE EDGE! BOTH WOMEN ARE DELIVERING SOME SERIOUS FOREARM SHOTS! ANDREA! FELIX! ANDREA! FELIX! ANDREA! FELIX! ANDREA! ANDREA! ANDREA!
Gavin Kirkland: FELIX HARTLEY CONNECTS WITH A NASTY HEADBUTT! ANDREA SEEMS OUT OF IT AT THIS POINT! SHE’S NOT LONGER THROWING FOREARMS BACK! FELIX DOES A PLAYFUL, BUT CASUAL WAVE TO ANDREA BEFORE THROWING HER FROM THE TURNBUCKLE AND OUT OF THE RING! ANDREA GOES CRASHING DOWN RINGSIDE! ANDREA VALENTINE IS OUT! :sob: :sob: :sob:
Maria Del Rey: Andrea Valentine has been eliminated!
CJ Hana: Andrea Valentine was a huge favorite going into this match! I bet there are quite a few fans, who really would have loved to see her win — but, she does not go to the final three! Serena Bennett, Tyler Wolfe and Felix Hartley! The three of these women are looking at one another! Which of these three women is going to headline Pain for Pride? Which of them is going to get the first move? Felix, Serena and Tyler look at each other, awaiting for the other to make the first move!
Gavin Kirkland: SERENA BENNETT AND FELIX HARTLEY BEGIN TO ATTACK TYLER WOLFE! THEY COULD SENSE THE HUGE TARGET IN THIS MATCH! AT THIS POINT IN THE MATCH, I DON’T CARE IF FELIX HARTLEY OR TYLER WOLFE WINS! WE CANNOT LET THAT FOX TRAITOR, SERENA BENNETT WIN THIS MATCH! Serena and Felix begin to stomp on Tyler’s stomach! Serena gets Tyler back up to her feet before delivering a huge slap to Tyler’s face! Felix turns Tyler around before connecting with a huge slap to Tyler’s face as well! It seems like these two are working together to take care of Tyler! If it leaves these two as the last two in the ring, that is fine with them! It means that they can settle their business as soon as possible! Felix yells for Serena to get Tyler back up to her feet! THAT TRAITOR HAS NO TIME TO THINK ABOUT HERSELF FOR THE TIME BEING! SHE NEEDS TO STRATEGIZE ON WHAT SHE CAN DO TO WEAKEN TYLER! FELIX CONNECTS WITH A LOCK JAW, AN OVER THE SHOULDER JAWBREAKER AS SERENA FOLLOWS THAT UP WITH A SOMERSAULT CLOTHESLINE!
CJ Hana: NOT QUITE, GAVIN! TYLER WOLFE MANAGES TO CATCH SERENA BENNETT BEFORE GETTING SERENA IN POSITION BEFORE CONNECTING WITH THE NIGHT OF THE WOLFE, MICHINOKU DRIVER ON SERENA BENNETT! FELIX HARTLEY TRIES TO USE THAT AS A DISTRACTION TO ATTACK TYLER, BUT TYLER SEES THAT COMING AS SHE MANAGES TO GET FELIX BY HER RIGHT ARM AND CONNECT WITH A HIPTOSS! FELIX LANDS IN A SEATED POSITION BEFORE CONNECTING WITH SOME DOUBLE KNEES TO FELIX AS SHE GOES DOWN! TYLER CONNECTS WITH A SERIES OF FOREARMS TO FELIX! FELIX IS TRYING TO COVER HER FACE! TYLER IS GETTING EACH SHOT IN BEFORE GETTING A HANDFUL OF FELIX’S HAIR BEFORE THROWING HER TO THE CORNER! FELIX FALLS TO A SEATED POSITION AT THE CORNER AS TYLER RUNS AND CONNECTS WITH A METEORA ON FELIX! TYLER GETS HERSELF TO A STANDING POSITION AS —
Gavin Kirkland: SERENA BENNETT WITH A DOUBLE KNEE BACKBREAKER! TYLER WOLFE MANAGES TO LEAN HERSELF FORWARD AS FELIX HARTLEY CONNECTS WITH A DROPKICK THAT SENDS “THE WALKING WEAPON” TO HER KNEES! Serena connects with a series of shoot kicks to Tyler Wolfe! Tyler is still not falling to her back! She is giving this the fight of her life! As the last blonde in this match and only Australian in this match, I am depending on Tyler to win this match for FOX! Serena connects with one last shoot kick — but, Tyler manages to catch Serena by her foot! Serena is shaking her head no as Tyler has a sinister look on her face before connecting with a dragon screw leg whip on the former Specialists Champion! Serena is clutching her right leg in pain! Felix Hartley goes to connect with busaiku knee on Tyler, but Tyler manages to catch Felix by her knee! Tyler gets Felix in position before connecting with an exploder suplex! Tyler rises back to her feet as she gives out a huge battlecry!
CJ Hana: Tyler Wolfe gets Felix Hartley up and throws her over the top rope —
Gavin Kirkland: Felix Hartley manages to clutch onto the top rope before collapsing on the apron! Felix is still in this match! Felix makes it back to a vertical base as she turns herself around! Tyler sees that Felix is still in this match! Tyler goes back to Felix, but Felix connects with a forearm before pulling in Tyler over the top rope! The two of these women are on the edge of the apron! Both women are being cautious about getting themselves back up to their feet! One wrong move and they will be eliminated! Felix Hartley gets back to her feet as she sees Tyler getting back to her feet! Felix runs!
CJ Hana: FELIX HARTLEY WITH THE BUSAIKU KNEE STRIKE ON TYLER WOLFE! TYLER FALLS, BUT SHE STILL HAS HER HAND GRASPED ON THE BOTTOM ROPE! THIS IS THE ONLY THING THAT IS HOLDING HER FROM COMPLETELY BREAKING FREE!
Gavin Kirkland: BASEBALL SLIDE ON TYLER WOLFE! THAT PUSHES TYLER OFF THE APRON! TYLER IS OUT OF THIS MATCH!
Maria Del Rey: Tyler Wolfe has been eliminated!
(The crowd in the Melbourne Cricket Ground begins to erupt in boos. Mostly, because one of their own had just been eliminated from the match. Tyler Wolfe is sat on the apron with a shocked and heartbroken look on her face as Serena Bennett is embracing the boos. She could care less that if the Aussies hate her for that.)
CJ Hana: RIP to the chances of having a blonde Grand Rampage winner.
Gavin Kirkland: I hate life. :mjcry:
CJ Hana: WE ARE DOWN TO THE FINAL TWO! SERENA BENNETT AND FELIX HARTLEY! BOTH NEWCOMERS THAT CAME TO THE EAW SCENE WITHIN THE LAST FEW MONTHS! SERENA BENNETT MANAGES TO SHOCK THE WORLD BY DEFEATING ANDREA VALENTINE AT KING OF ELITE! ALL OF THAT ENDED BECAUSE OF THAT WOMAN STANDING IN FRONT OF HER, FELIX HARTLEY! FELIX ENTERS THE RING AND STANDS FACE-TO-FACE WITH SERENA! SERENA ENTERED THIS MATCH AT NUMBER ONE! SHE SEEMS OUT OF IT AT THIS POINT! FELIX ENTERED THIS MATCH AT NUMBER NINE! FELIX MAY HAVE A LITTLE MORE WIND THAN SERENA, BUT THAT IS NOT SAYING MUCH! BOTH OF THESE WOMEN HAVE OUTLASTED SEVENTEEN OTHER WOMEN AND THE VISUAL PROPHET TO BECOME THE FINAL TWO! SERENA BENNETT, FELIX HARTLEY! WHICH OF THEM WILL GET AN OPPORTUNITY TO FACE THE WOMEN’S WORLD CHAMPION AT PAIN FOR PRIDE! SIENNA JADE AND RAVEN ROBERTS WOULD LOVE TO KNOW THE ANSWER TO THAT!
Gavin Kirkland: Just give up, Serena! Don’t make this difficult for yourself!
(Serena Bennett and Felix Hartley are looking at the Pain for Pride logo up in the rafters! Both of these women know what’s on the line and success is so close to them.)
Serena Bennett: It’s my time!
Gavin Kirkland: FELIX HARTLEY DID NOT LIKE THE SOUND OF THAT AS SHE CONNECTED WITH A HUGE SLAP ACROSS SERENA BENNETT’S CHEEK! THAT’S GOTTA HURT! FELIX HAS A HUGE GRIN ON HER FACE! SERENA GOES RIGHT AFTER FELIX WITH A FOREARM, BUT FELIX MANAGES TO SHIFT HERSELF TO THE SIDE AS SERENA GOES PAST FELIX! FELIX GETS SERENA BY THAT CHEAP ASS WEAVE BEFORE SLAMMING HER AGAINST THE MAT! Felix begins to unload in a series of punches! Felix is my only hope on having a hot Grand Rampage winner! We know that we aren’t going to be getting that with Serena! I mean, have you looked at her?? Felix gets Serena by her arm — #BadBitch! The twisted arm drag takedown on Serena! Serena is clutching her arm in pain, but it seems like Felix wants to make sure that Serena stays down long enough to throw her over the top rope! Felix gets Serena up before taking a few steps back — Ass, Class & Sass on Serena Bennett! Serena is down! Felix gets Serena’s lifeless body as she throws her outside of the ring!
CJ Hana: Not quite, Gavin! Serena Bennett has her feet firmly on the ground! There may be some signs of life from her! Felix Hartley tries to move Serena’s body towards the ropes, but Serena is not moving! Serena is still in this match! Felix is so close to winning this match! ALL SHE NEEDS TO DO IS TO THROW SERENA OVER, BUT SERENA IS NOT LETTING THAT HAPPEN! FELIX CONNECTS WITH A FOREARM TO SERENA! AND ANOTHER ONE! AND ANOTHER ONE! BUT, SERENA IS NOT GOING DOWN! SERENA IS NOT GIVING UP! WITH EACH PUNCH, YOU CAN TELL THAT FELIX IS GETTING MORE FRUSTRATED! FELIX JUST WANTS FOR THIS MATCH TO BE OVER WITH! FELIX GETS SERENA UP —
Gavin Kirkland: SERENA BENNETT WITH A JAW BREAKER AS THAT SENDS FELIX HARTLEY STUMBLING BACK! SERENA GETS FELIX BY HER ANKLES AND TRIPS HER. FELIX FALLS TO HER KNEES AS SERENA CONNECTS WITH A SHOOT KICK! AND ANOTHER ONE! AND ANOTHER ONE! AND ANOTHER ONE! ONE LAST SHOOT KICK AS THAT SENDS FELIX TO HER BACK! SERENA GETS FELIX BY HER HEAD AND GOES TOWARDS THE SET OF ROPES! IT LOOKS LIKE SERENA IS GOING TO THROW HER OVER, BUT FELIX COUNTERS AS SHE SENDS SERENA OVER THE TOP ROPE!
CJ Hana: NO! SERENA BENNETT COUNTERS! FELIX HARTLEY IS THROWN OVER THE TOP ROPE! SERENA BENNETT IS GOING TO PAIN FOR PRIDE!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
(“Surfin” plays again as Serena Bennett collapses to her knees. She has completely lost feeling on her legs as a ton of emotion is racing through her face. She is trying not to cry, but she cannot help, but feel amazing for accomplishing this task.)
Maria Del Rey: THE WINNER OF THE 2019 WOMEN’S GRAND RAMPAGE MATCH … SEEEERRRRRRREEEEEEENNNNNNNNNNNNAAAAAAA BEEEEEENNNNNNEEEEETTTTTTTTTTTT!!
CJ Hana: WHAT A MATCH! WE SAW TWIST, TURNS AND SURPRISES! WE SAW THIS YOUNG WOMAN BE THE FIRST WOMAN TO ENTER THE MATCH AND SHE IS THE LAST WOMAN STANDING! PEOPLE THOUGHT THAT SHE WOULD HAVE BEEN WINDED HALFWAY TO THE MATCH; HOWEVER, SERENA BENNETT WAS TOO STUBBORN! SHE POURED EVERYTHING INTO THIS MATCH! ALL THE WOMEN PARTICIPATING DID! THIS WAS AN AMAZING SHOW FROM EVERY SINGLE WOMAN ON THE EMPIRE ROSTER! :wow: :wow: :wow:
Gavin Kirkland: I should just walk out. People did that last year, right?
(Sienna Jade and Raven Roberts stand up from their chairs. Serena Bennett has a look of fierce determination in her eyes. Raven is applauding Serena and her performance and Sienna is shaking her head as she raises the Women’s World Championship high in the air. The Women’s World Championship picture is still unclear, but the time this event is over, we should know Serena’s opponent.)
(Wage War’s “Stitch” is the first song to rip through the sound system, and that brings out the fan favorite Jack Ripley. The crowd in Melbourne absolutely goes bananas when Jack rips his way through the curtain and explodes onto the stage in a burst of energy just as the song really kicks in.)
James Peters: Would you listen to this crowd, they’re losing it. Everyone is behind Jack Ripley tonight as he challenges for the National Elite Championship. He’s come a long way this year – won the Twenty-Four Seven battle royal and represented Dynasty where he was a member of the One Percent, and the PURE Champion. After the One Percent cast him out and he lost the PURE championship, he lost his job on Dynasty – which brings him here. He found his way to Voltage and turned over a new leaf. And tonight, he has the chance to remove the National Elite Championship from Jackson Blayde!
Rich Russillo: No he doesn’t, James. Jack has no chance against the President of Blaydemerica, where have you been? Jackson Blayde has disposed of every challenger that has stepped up to the plate for the National Elite championship, and he’s done so handedly. You’re going to sit there and tell me with a straight face that this One Percent reject is going to impeach our President? You, sir, are sadly mistaken! Jackson Blayde will continue to be our president for as long as HE wants to. Jack Ripley is just going to be another challenger who failed. Period.
James Peters: Rich, how can you not see that this is Jackson’s biggest test to date? Jack Ripley is a future hall of famer, on his own merit. He’s not just one half of the High Rollerz anymore – and tonight he has a real chance of establishing himself as a solo star!
Rich Russillo: Yeah, and I have a chance to get with someone as elegant and classy as Jazmin Garcia – but that doesn’t mean it’s going to happen! Jack Ripley just better thank his lucky stars that Jackson has allowed him to compete for the championship. That’s all I’m saying. Many men don’t even get that much.
(By now, Jack has made his way to the ring. He stops on top of the steps and looks out to the sold out crowd, all smiles as they cheer and chant for him. He enters the ring fluidly, effortlessly launching himself over the top rope. Rolling into the center of the ring, posing one more time before the sounds of a threat clearing are heard. His music stops and all attention turns to the stage to see Jazmin Garcia.)
Jazmin Garcia: Ladies and gentlemen, would you please put down the disgusting snacks that you’re stuffing your face with – and stand to your feet. Show some respect while I introduce to you .. the reigning and defending National Elite champion. The President of Blaydemerica .. Jackson Blayde!
(The opening riff’s of “Real American” by Rick Derringer rip through the sound system. But instead of the traditional lyrics that have accompanied the power riffs of the song, new lyrics have been dubbed over the instrumental version of the song.)
“I AM A REAL BLAYDEMERICAN.
FOLLOW THE ORDERS OF JACKSON AND JAZMIN!
I AM A REAL BLAYEMERICAN.
FOLLOW OUR EXAMPLE, GO SPRAY TAAAANNNNN!!”
(The new and “improved” lyrics for “Real Blaydemerican” are heard for the first time, and after the hook is heard – Jackson Blayde emerges from behind the curtain. The National Elite championship is strapped tightly around his waist, and his gear tonight matches the gold of the championship. He takes a moment to pause on the stage, before he and Jazmin begin their descent down the ramp to the ring.)
Rich Russillo: Here he comes. The President of Blaydemerica. His Excellency of the National Elite division. Look at him, James. How can you count this man out, for … THAT thing – Jack Ripley? Jackson is the perfect specimen and representation of how an athlete should present themselves. He’s the New Face of the EAW and everyone should strive to be exactly like Jackson.
James Peters: I don’t think Jack Ripley wants to be like Jackson, he wants to be better. Jack’s not a fan of the borderline racist and hateful comments Jackson has been guilty of, and he’s hell bent on removing him from power and beginning his own reign. So I expect to see Jack come out of the gate hot and strong to start this match, and to keep that momentum going.
Rich Russillo: Doesn’t matter. Jackson will shut him down, as he does to everyone else. Period.
(Jackson and Jazmin have closed the gap to the ring, and Jackson enters by himself. Removing the championship from his waist and holding it high in the air as he leans against the ropes closest to the hard camera. The Melbourne Cricket Ground fills with boos at this display, which makes Jackson smirk. He turns around and hands the referee the championship and his new – custom – theme music fades out and Bella Braxton takes over.)
Bella Braxton: The following contest is scheduled for one fall and is for the EAW NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPIONSHIP!!! …. Introducing first. From Las Vegas, Nevada – weighing in at Two Hundred and Two pounds – the challenger, JACK RIPLEY!
(Jack makes a finger gun and points it to Jackson, mouthing the words “Pew Pew Pew” as he ‘fires’. The crowd eats this up, cheering madly. Jackson, though, rolls his eyes and makes an offensive hand gesture toward Jack.)
Bella Braxton: And his opponent. From the Capital of Blaydemerica – Memphis, Tennessee – weighing in at Two Hundred and Twenty Nine pounds – the reigning and defending National Elite Champion, JACKSON BLAYDE!
(No taunting from Jackson, just a shit eating grin as his name was announced immediately followed by a chorus of boos. Bella takes the time to exit the ring, leaving Jackson and Jack in their respective corners. When the referee notices they’re not moving out to meet one another for a handshake – he calls for the bell.)
(DING! DING! DING!)
James Peters: There’s the opening bell and finally the showdown between Ripley and Blayde happens. Meeting in the center of the ring, they’re exchanging words before Blayde fires the first shot. A stiff forearm, followed by one more, before he turns and hits the ropes. Coming back, DROPKICK FROM RIPLEY! BLAYDE DOESN’T GO DOWN BUT RIPLEY IS QUICKLY BACK TO HIS FEET AND HITS ANOTHER DROPKICK! THAT ONE SENDS BLAYDE TUMBLING THROUGH THE ROPES TO THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING. JACKSON MANAGES TO RECOVER FROM THE FALL, LANDING ON HIS FEET, BUT THERE’S RIPLEY WITH A SUICIDE DIVE!!! BOTH MEN CRASH INTO THE BARRICADE AND HIT THE FLOOR. RIPLEY IS UP TO HIS FEET FIRST, GRABBING BLAYDE UP ONLY DRIVING HIM BACK FIRST INTO THE BARRICADE AGAIN. RIPLEY TURNS AND CLIMBS ONTO THE APRON. RIPLEY DIVES OFF.. HURRICANRANA!!!!
Rich Russillo: JACKSON STOPS HIM AS RIPLEY DROPS HIS BODY DOWN! LOOK AT THE POWER FROM OUR NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPION! HE SWINGS RIPLEY’S BODY AROUND AS IT WERE NOTHING, SLAMMING HIM INTO THE BARRIER HARD BEFORE DROPPING HIM TO THE GROUND! BLAYDE ONLY WAITS A MOMENT BEFORE GRABBING RIPLEY UP AND THROWING HIM DIRECTLY INTO THE STEEL STEPS, AND TO JUST DISPLAY HIS POWER SOME MORE, THE FORCE BEHIND THAT THROW INTO THE STEPS SENT THE STEPS FLYING APART.
James Peters: Blayde is relying on his strength advantage while, for a little bit, Ripley was relying on his speed. Blayde has reentered the ring at the urgency of the referee. Ripley is crawling up to his feet, then rolls in under the bottom rope. Blayde is immediately ontop of him with ruthless and repeated stomps. Dragging Ripley to the middle of the ring, Jackson drops a big elbow. Then another. Then another. Now Blayde has driven his knee into Ripley’s spine and pulls back on his head in this form of a choke. Ripley’s arms flail around, trying to do something to cause Blayde’s grip to break, but it’s to no use. Blayde wrenches back on the hold until he’s satisfied. Blayde’s moved his knee out of Ripley’s back, and wraps that big arm of his around Ripley’s throat completely now in a choke – but that was the opening Ripley needed to begin to work his way up. Feeding Blayde shots to the stomach, eventually slipping out of the hold. Ripley hits the ropes to gain some momentum ..
Rich Russillo: SHOULDER BLOCK BY BLAYDE! Ripley is barely back up to his feet when Blayde clobbers him with a stiff right forearm, sending him sprawling back to the mat. Blayde’s grabs Ripley’s hair, pulling him up to his feet before throwing him into the corner. Following him in, driving those massive boulders of shoulders into Ripley’s stomach over and over again. Driving the wind out of the challengers lungs before moving back to the center of the ring. HE MOCKS RIPLEY! PEW PEW PEW BITCH! BLAYDE RUNS IN
James Peters: RIPLEY WITH A FOOT UP, CATCHING BLAYDE IN THE JAW! RIPLEY CLIMBS UP TO THE MIDDLE TURNBUCKLE AND JUMPS OFF — DROPKICK TO THE NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPION, SENDING BLAYDE DOWN TO THE MAT. RIPLEY IS BACK TO HIS FEET NOW, RUNNING ON PURE ADRENALINE. THE CROWD IS BEHIND HIM AFTER THAT DROPKICK THAT FINALLY TAKES BLAYDE OFF OF HIS FEET. BLAYDE IS BACK UP, RIPLEY CHARGES FORWARD, USING BLAYDE’S SIZE AGAINST HIM – USING BLAYDE’S SHOULDERS TO POP HIMSELF UP … METEORA!! HIS KNEES DRIVING BLAYDE BACK DOWN TO THE MAT AND RIPLEY STAYS THERE, REACHING BACK AND GRABBING BLAYDE’S LEGS! PIN!!!
Rich Russillo: BLAYDE WITH THE KICKOUT!
James Peters: Ripley back up to his feet. Blayde up to his knees.. YOU’LL FLOAT TOO!!! OH MY GOD! RIPLEY JUST HIT BLAYDE WITH THE YOU’LL FLOAT TOO SUPERKICK! BLAYDE IS DOWN! RIPLEY WITH THE PIN!
Rich Russillo: JAZMIN IS ON THE APRON AND THE REFEREE IS DISTRACTED! Brilliant move by the First Lady of Blaydemerica.
James Peters: Oh, come on! Get her out of here if she’s going to be a nuisance. Ripley had this match won right there. .. Finally, the referee makes her get down. Ripley and the referee both turn around. SMALL PACKAGE BY BLAYDE WHO WAS WAITING! NOT LIKE THIS!!
James Peters: RIPLEY KICKS OUT AT THE VERY LAST SECOND!! Blayde is up first, grabbing Ripley and driving a knee lift into his stomach. Blayde drops Ripley with a suplex, rolls his hips and deadlifts Ripley up with another suplex… STALLS…
Rich Russillo: Look at that power. Look at that strength. Jackson Blayde is the champion that we need to run this entire company .. but not the one we deserve.
James Peters: Blayde still holding Ripley up… Ripley is kicking his feet! HE’S FREE! He lands behind Blayde.. INVERTED DDT! Back up to his feet, Ripley hits the ropes .. DAYLIGHT SLAYING TIME! THAT KNEE JUST ALMOST TOOK OFF JACKSON’S HEAD! RIPLEY TURNS AND WAITS, HE’S BEGGING BLAYDE TO GET BACK UP. BLAYDE IS UP TO HIS KNEES.. YOU’LL FLOAT TOO!!!!!!!
Rich Russillo: BLAYDE DUCKS UNDERNEATH THE SUPERKICK! HE’S UP TO HIS FEET QUICKLY, GRABBING RIPLEY AND SPINNING HIM AROUND. SUPLEX.. ROLLOUT.. BACKBREAKER!!! THE BEALE STREET BACKBREAKER!! RIPLEY’S SPINE JUST BENT AWKWARDLY ON JACKSONS KNEES. BLAYDE PUSHES RIPLEY ONTO THE MAT, COVERS!
James Peters: KICKOUT! JACK RIPLEY JUST KICKED OUT OF THE BEALE STREET BACKBREAKER! BLAYDE IS NOT IMPRESSED. THE CHAMPION GRABS RIPLEY UP QUICKLY .. FRACTURED DDT!! RIPLEY’S HEAD IS DRIVEN INTO THE MAT WITH SICKENING FORCE. BLAYDE IS UP, CALLING IT OUT! HE’S GOING CROWN BREAKER, RICH!
Rich Russillo: BLAYDE GRABS RIPLEY UP AGAIN, KICK TO THE STOMACH AND SETS HIM UP. HOOKS THE ARMS.. NO! RIPLEY SPINS OUT OF IT. SHOVING BLAYDE BACK, YOU’LL FLOAT TOO! NO! BLAYDE AVOIDS IT, GRABS RIPLEY FROM BEHIND.. 901 KNEE!!! RIPLEY’S BODY CRUMBLES TO THE GROUND AND BLAYDE IS BACK ONTOP WITH ANOTHER COVER.
James Peters: ANOTHER KICKOUT BY RIPLEY! RIPLEY IS PUTTING HIS HEART ON DISPLAY TONIGHT. HE JUST WON’T GIVE UP! BLAYDE LIFTS RIPLEY UP TO HIS FEET, HOOKS BOTH ARMS FOR A DOUBLE ARM DDT .. NO! RIPLEY SPINS OUT OF IT, KICKS BLAYDE IN THE STOMACH .. RIPPLE EFFECT!! RIPPLE EFFECT!! JACKSON BLAYDE WAS JUST DRIVEN INTO THE MAT WITH THAT VERTEBREAKER! BUT RIPLEY IS LAID OUT ON THE MAT TOO, HURTING FROM THE PUNISHMENT THAT BLAYDE HAS DISHED OUT. RIPLEY’S BACK IS ALL TWISTED FROM THAT BRUTAL BEALE STREET BACKBREAKER JUST MOMENTS AGO. HE’S BEGINNING TO CRAWL TOWARD BLAYDE, DRAPING A SINGLE ARM OVER HIS CHEST! THIS COULD BE IT!
Rich Russillo: IT’S BLAYDE WITH THE KICKOUT THIS TIME! RIPLEY, STILL OUT OF IT, BEGINS TO PUSH HIMSELF TO THE ROPES AND PULL HIMSELF UP. JAZMIN ON THE OUTSIDE SHOUTING AT BLAYDE TO GET UP, WHICH HE DOES. BLAYDE SHAKES OFF THE AFFECT OF THE RIPPLE EFFECT, CRACKS HIS NECK AND GRABS RIPLEY THROWING HIM INTO THE CORNER. BLAYDE IMMEDIATELY ONTOP OF RIPLEY, MOUNTING THE MIDDLE ROPE AND SMASHING HIS FIST INTO RIPLEY’S TEMPLE.
James Peters: Ripley eating those shots until.. He slips his arms between Jackson’s legs and hooks him.. POWERBOMB OUT OF THE CORNER! JACKKNIFE FLIP OVER .. RIPLEY HAS BLAYDE UP AGAIN, LIFTING HIM ONTO HIS SHOULDER … LAWN DART! RUNNING HIM INTO THE CORNER AND TOSSING HIM THROUGH THE ROPES INTO THE STEEL POST!!! THE CROWD IS EXPLODING! RIPLEY’S BREATHING HEAVY AND IS UNSTEADY AS HE PULLS HIMSELF UP.. OH NO, JAZMIN ON THE APRON AGAIN!
Rich Russillo: Ripley’s moved to where Jazmin stands. GET AWAY FROM HER, YOU MUTT!
James Peters: The referee is trying to bring order back to this. Telling Jazmin to get down or she’s going to be sent out.. BLAYDE FROM BEHIND, CLUBBING RIPLEY WITH A MASSIVE FOREARM! Ripley’s sent sprawling to the mat and NOW Jazmin is down. THIS IS DISGUSTING. Everytime Ripley has the advantage, Jazmin sticks her nose in.
Rich Russillo: That serves Ripley right. He doesn’t deserve to look at the first lady, let alone talk to her!
James Peters: Blayde has Ripley up again.. Gutwrench.. Powerbomb INTO THE CORNER! Ripley smashes off of the turnbuckles and crumbles to the ground again. Blayde is ecstatic. So happy with himself. Smug son of a bitch!
Rich Russillo: It’s time Mr. President! Finish him off!
James Peters: Blayde moves into the corner with Ripley, hoisting him up and placing him on the top rope. Don’t tell me he’s going to attempt this, Rich. He has that look in his eye. Blayde has climbed up with him and stands up on top rope. Incredible balance from Jackson. He’s pulling Ripley up.. RIPLEY FIRING SHOTS TO JACKSON’S STOMACH, AND THEN HEAD AS HE’S STANDING UP ON THE TOP TURNBUCKLE TOO. THIS IS A TERRIFYING MOMENT FOR BOTH OF THESE MEN, STANDING – TEETERING – ON THE TOP ROPE, EXCHANGING STRIKES! RIPLEY WITH A HEADBUTT!! BLAYDE IS OFF BALANCE, RIPLEY PUSHES HIM OFF!!
Rich Russillo: :damn:
James Peters: BLAYDE CRASHES HARD TO THE MAT BELOW! HE’S IN PERFECT POSITION! DO IT, YOU SON OF A BITCH! DO IT!!!! … RIPLEY JUMPS OFF OF THE TURNBUCKLE…
James Peters: OH MY GOD, JACK RIPLEY JUST PERFECTLY LANDED A BEAUTIFUL SHOOTING STAR PRESS ON JACKSON BLAYDE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING! HE HOOKS THE LEG! THE REFEREE SLIDES INTO POSITION AND JAZMIN IS FREAKING OUT!
Jazmin slams her hands on the mat
Jazmin’s up on the apron, trying to get the referee’s attention.
Jazmin screams a shrill scream!)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Bella Braxton: Here is your winner.. AND NEEEEWWWW NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPION … JACK RIPLEY!!!!
James Peters: JACK RIPLEY HAS DONE IT! HE’S DETHRONED JACKSON BLAYDE AND HAS BECOME THE NEW NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPION! WHAT AN ENDING TO THE COMEBACK STORY! FIRED FROM DYNASTY, KICKED OUT OF THE ONE PERCENT AND COMES BACK – BETTER THAN EVER – TO WIN THE NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPIONSHIP!
Rich Russillo: :kellycry:
James Peters: Jackson Blayde had an amazing title run, but he’s pushed too many buttons on the wrong people. Sooner or later, his time would come. And Jack Ripley was the one that controlled the clock.
Rich Russillio: Regardless of the result, Jackson Blayde was, is, and always will be MY President. This will ALWAYS be Blaydemerica. His term was over, but he will forever remain as the greatest president of ALL TIME! I SALUTE YOU, JACKSON BLAYDE!
( Wage War’s “Stitch” builds up again as the referee collects the National Elite championship. He moves back to the center of the ring where Ripley is returning to his feet, and hands him the championship before raising his arm. Jackson has rolled out of the ring and stands on the outside with Jazmin. Disappointed. Shaking his head while Jazmin tries to offer him words of condolence.)
James Peters: Welcome to the Jack Ripley era of the National Elite division!
(The camera gets one last look at Jack celebrating with his National Elite Championship before fading to commercial break.)

Stephie Love: The following contest is set for one fall and is for the EAW PURE championship!
(‘I Love It Loud’ by KISS plays as Shaker Jones walks out onto the stage to the cheers of the crowd. After taking a moment to soak it in he makes his way down the ramp to the ring.)
Stew-O: Tonight is the biggest match in the career of the Punk Rock Cowboy! Shaker Jones needs to bring his A plus game here tonight or the Pure title won’t be leaving Ms. Extreme at all!
Talib: You right Stew! Shaker has a golden opportunity here tonight, Shaker has spent a lot of time climbing the mountain and like my man Stew said, he really needs to stand out here tonight or he’s going right back to the bottom of the heap!
Stephie Love: Introducing first, the challenger…from Inglis, Manitoba, Canada…THE PUNK ROCK COWBOY…SHAKER JONES! And now introducing his opponent…
(‘The Joker’ by New Years Day begins to play as Ms. Extreme walks out onto the stage to the roar of the crowd. She pats the centerplate of the PURE championship with confidence and makes her way to the ring with championship swagger.)
Flannery McCoy: Ms. Extreme, the younger sister of Cameron Ella Ava, has one up on her sister by walking into her Grand Rampage match defending a title instead of competing for one. She’s well on her way to becoming the most prolific PURE champion of all time, and sees is taking Shaker Jones just as serious as any other competitor she’s had!
Stew-O: Let’s take a second and look over the list of people she’s defended against: Mark Michaels, Remi Skyfire, Bowie Gray, she’s had battles with Donovan Cross, and fought the 1% on the front lines. Ms. Extreme has absolutely been a fighting champion since she beat Erebus Jennings earlier this year, and like we intimated previously, Shaker Jones will need to arguably have the match of his career in order to take that PURE title from her.
Stephie Love: from Calabasas California…she is the reigning, defending, undisputed EAW PURE Champion…’The Red Queen’ MS. EXTREME!
(Ms. Extreme climbs the turnbuckle hoisting the PURE championship high before dropping down and handing it to the referee.)
Stephie Love: This match will be contended under PURE rules, no closed fist punches to the head, there will be a 20 count outside the ring, and each competitor will have a total of three rope breaks. The title can change hands on count out or disqualification!
(Stephie exits the ring as the referee hands the PURE title to the time keeper and calls for the bell to start the match.)
(DING DING DING!)
Stew-O: Shaker and Extreme for the PURE title! Shaker rushes forward, looking to grab the early advantage! Ms. Extreme with a dro toe hold though, catches Shaker and drops him to his knees! Ms. Extreme to the ropes…seated dropkick to the side of the head! Shaker is rocked! Ms. Extreme pulls Shaker to his feet and whips him to the ropes back body drop from Ms. Extreme, and it looks like Shaker may have misjudged his strategy here tonight!
Flannery: Shaker rolls to the outside, looking to put some distance between himself and Ms. Extreme, who tries to go after him, but the official is holding her back so he can begin his count.
Flannery: Shaker is regrouping on the outside while Ms. Extreme stalks him inside the ring! Remember, Shaker has to the count of 20 here!
Flannery: Shaker rolls back in the ring now! Ms. Extreme moves to intercept Jones, but he catches her with a kick to the gut! Shaker hooks the tights and delivers a hard snap suplex! Shaker keeps the tights hooked! He swings his hips and is back to his feet…another suplex! Shaker drops an elbow across the sternum of Ms. Extreme and transitions to a headlock, he’s looking to keep Ms. Extreme on his pace!
Talib: That’s smart though! Shaker isn’t as fast as Ms. Extreme, so if he’s going to have a chance at all he’s going to need all the advantages he can get! Ms. Extreme slips out of the headlock, and catches Shaker in a hammer lock! Don’t sleep on her technical ability, Ms. Extreme, despite her name, has proven she’s in the upper echelon of technical wrestlers in this company! Jones grabs the ropes, probably out of instinct, but remember that cost him one of his three rope breaks in this match!
Stew-O: Ms. Extreme breaks the hold with a knowing grin, causing Shaker to burn through one of his rope breaks is smart strategy here and just goes to prove that her experience under PURE rules makes her a formidable champion! The referee is letting Shaker know he’s down a rope break as Ms Extreme releases the hold and catches Shaker in the ribs with a kick to the ribs as he tries to make his way to his feet. Ava hits the ropes but Shaker Jones drops to the mat as she rebounds, letting her pass by…hip toss from Shaker to Extreme! Shaker off the ropes himself now and lands a leg drop on the Red Queen!
Talib: Shaker Jones pulls the smaller Ms Extreme to her feet and lands a mighty gourdbuster, putting her back to the mat! Shaker is using that power! He pulls her to her feet again, I dunno how smart a move that is, to be honest, he’s essentially helping his opponent by pulling her to her feet instead of letting her burn her own energy getting up. Regardless of that, though, Shaker positions Extreme…POWERBOMB! The Woman on Fire just got folded in half! Shaker goes for the pin!
Referee: ONE! TWO!
Flannery: Kick Out from Extreme! Shaker slides outside the ring, pulling Ms. Extreme by the arm along with him. Still in a daze from the powerbomb, Extreme isn’t able to put up much resistance as Shaker wraps her arm around the barricade, he needs to be careful here! Ms. Extreme snaps out of her daze as Shaker bends her arm at a nasty angle! The referee is yelling at him to release the hold, he’s not started the count yet, but Shaker needs to keep in mind the PURE rules in effect here, he can get himself in a lot of trouble very quickly!
Stew-O: It could also be a strategy, if Shaker keeps skirting the edge of the rules he may believe that Ms. Extreme will retaliate and get herself disqualified, losing the PURE title in the process…
Talib: Nah, Ms. Extreme ain’t dumb, she’s not gonna fall for that. SHaker breaks the hold, though and rolls her back in the ring at the insistence of the referee who was threatening to take another rope break away, while would leave Shaker in a very bad position. Ava trying to shake the feeling back into her right arm as Shaker slides into the ring looking to continue his punishment…he sees Extreme making her way to her feet and Shaker hits the ropes…CANADIAN CLOTHESLINE! Ms. Extreme is floored! Shaker moving into position…CASEY JONES! Shaker locks in the anaconda vise!
Stew-O: Ms. Extreme is in a lot of trouble here! She is trying to work her way out of the hold, but I think she’s going to need to use one of her rope breaks here…and she does! Shaker releases the hold and things are back roughly even in this match! Jones slaps the mat in frustration and quickly moves back into position, he may be looking to finish Ms. Extreme off here tonight! GIVE EM THE BOOT! BUT NO! Ms. Extreme manages to avoid the running kick and lands a running enzuigiri! Shaker is off balance! Ms. Extreme moves quickly! AVA LOCK! SHE’S GOT THE AVA LOCK IN! JONES IS IN REAL TROUBLE HERE!
Flannery: SHaker reaches the ropes, it was a hail mary of sorts from Ms. Extreme, but it burned yet another rope break from Shaker and the referee is telling her to break the hold, but Ava won’t! He starts the count!
Flannery: She releases the hold! Ms. Extreme very nearly lost a rope break there, but she is now firmly in control of the match! Shaker is slow getting to his feet as Ms. Extreme walks over, now seemingly in control…OH NO! SHAKER JONES SPIT…SOME KIND OF MIST IN THE FACE OF MS. EXTREME! She’s blinded! The official moves quickly and tells Shaker he’s lost his last rope break now, that’s going to change the complexion of this match, but it may not matter at this point! Ms. Extreme is groping, trying to to wipe that mist from her eyes, meanwhile Shaker gets into position…THE ‘87! Shaker lands the jumping cutter! Camille is out! Shaker makes the pin…
Referee: ONE! TWO! THREE!
Talib: ROPE BREAK! Ms. Extreme managed to just grab that bottom rope! Shaker can’t believe it, and to tell the truth I don’t know if I can either, Jones had this match in the bag, all he needed to do was make sure Ms. Extreme was away from the ropes! He pulls the still blind champion to her feet and pushes her back into the corner, lifting her to the top turnbuckle…Shaker looking for a superplex here…NO! Ms. Extreme pushes Shaker off the top rope…GLASS CEILING! That top rope stunner just left Jones down and out! Ms. Extreme not going for the pin though, looks like she’s got other plans…RED HANDED! Ms. Extreme has the Fujiwara Armbar locked in tight and Shaker can’t use a rope break because he’s used them all!
Stew-O: Look at the determination on the face of Ms. Extreme, almost burning through that orange mist she was sprayed with! Shaker is trying to fight, he gets a foot on the ropes, but it doesn’t matter, he has lost all three…will he…YES! Shaker Jones tapped out!
(DING DING DING!)
Stew-O:Ms. Extreme has defended the PURE championship!
Flannery: Indeed she has! Shaker was very game here tonight and had a sound strategy, but Ms. Extreme was just too much for thunk Rock Cowboy to overcome.
(‘Joker’ begins to play as the referee hands Ms. Extreme the PURE title. She holds the championship high as she tried to wipe more of the mist from her face. She basks in the adoration of the crowd as Shaker Jones makes his way back up the ramp in defeat and the camera transitions elsewhere.)
(The camera slowly fades to black as a video begins to play and we hear the slight chuckle of Answers World Champion.)
Theron: Do you REALLY think that this is going to be any different, whore?
(The video cuts to various shots of Theron Nikolas’ reign over Dynasty; winning the Answers World Championship from Darkane, retaining inside the Elimination Chamber, defeating Jamie O’Hara and Devan Dubian, and lastly ruining the main event of Ides of March and turning on Mr. DEDEDE.)
Theron: The truth is that you’re going to do the exact same thing that everyone else has; the one thing that you’re undoubtedly the best at doing, Cameron. You will get on your knees and you will kneel.
(The video cuts to a shot of Theron standing inside the empty Melbourne Cricket Ground with the Answers World Championship hanging from his shoulder.)
Theron: There is nothing that you’re going to be able to do. There is nothing more that you’re going to be able to offer that anybody else hasn’t already thrown my way. There’s a reason that I’m this business’s God Emperor. There is a reason that nobody in this business has been able to cut me down. I am invincible. I am indestructible. I am untouchable. The quicker that you accept that, Cameron… the quicker you’re going to be able to accept that there is no hope left. There’s nothing that you’re going to be able to rely on. You accept that your role in this story is to fall.
(The camera slowly fades to black until the screen is completely dark; the only sound heard is someone taking a deep breath in before exhaling before a familiar voice begins to speak.)
“Do you know what it’s like chasing your greatest dream, only for it to ripped away the moment that it seems like it’s only fingertips away?”
(The voice is that of the No. 1 Contender to the Answers World Championship, Cameron Ella Ava. The video cuts to a shot of Cameron sitting in front of a camera; her head pointed down and her eyes are closed.)
Cameron: I have been so fortunate; had a career that the majority of those who have entered this business could only dream of having, but right now – there’s a feeling of emptiness that I can’t seem to fill.
(The video cuts to shots of Cameron’s successes throughout her career; winning the Vixen’s Championship on multiple occasions, the Interwire Championship, the Vixen’s Cup, the Women’s World Championship, the Unified Tag Team Championships, multiple Vixen/Female Elitist of the Year awards.)
Cameron: I wouldn’t trade anything that I’ve been able to accomplish for anything, but even with it all – I’m not going to be satisfied until I stand at the top of this company with something that someone like I was never meant to grasp.
(The shot cuts to Cameron competing against Jamie O’Hara for the World Heavyweight Championship at Territorial Invasion back in 2017, finally ending with a shot of Jamie O’Hara raising the World Heavyweight Championship high into the air.)
Cameron: I gave everything that I physically could against Jamie, but it wasn’t enough. The memory of staring up at those lights after just falling short is something that I will never forget.
(The camera cuts back to Cameron as she slowly lifts her head and opens her eyes.)
Cameron: It’s a feeling that I never want to feel again. It’s something that I will not experience again.
(The video cuts to Cameron’s last ten months. The 1% taking her down at the Draft show and almost putting Jamie into retirement. The wars with DDD and Devan Dubian. Every struggle, every time she got back up when it looked like she had nothing left.)
Cameron: Everything that I have gone through; everything fight, every battle, every war – absolutely all of it has lead to this moment. The moment that you fall. The moment that you realise that you hold absolutely no control. I have watched the things I thought I deserved more than anyone else go to others, but that means nothing once I take that crown, destroy your throne and slay the untouchable God Emperor.
Theron: The grains of sand are reaching the bottom of the hourglass of your time in MY spotlight. There’s only one thing left to do. YOU KNEEL BEFORE THE GOD EMPEROR.
Cameron: I will win.
(A final shot of Cameron raising the Answers World Championship over a fallen Theron Nikolas before the camera cuts back to ringside and Stephie Love stands ready.)
Ring Announcer: Ladies and Gentlemen, this next contest is scheduled for ONE FALL… AND IS FOR THE ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP!!!!
(“UltraNUMB” by Blue Stahli hits as Cameron Ella Ava makes her way out through the curtain to a THUNDEROUS ovation from the thousands upon thousands packed inside the Melbourne Cricket Ground. She stands on the stage, looking at out the crowd as she takes a deep breath before making her way down to the ring.)
Stew: You have to wonder about the pressure that this woman is placing onto her own shoulders heading into this Answers World Championship match. Cameron Ella Ava is possibly moments away from achieving something that she has worked so hard to obtain; something that she has dreamed about accomplishing throughout her entire career. She has a storied career, but as you saw during that pre match video – she isn’t going to be satisfied until she stands at the top of this company with one of those Crown Jewels.
Talib: And she has the toughest challenge of her entire career standing in front of her tonight. Like the man or hate him; there is arguably nobody better in this business at the moment than the current Answers World Champion. There isn’t another man or woman that enters each match with a better strategy, and to put on top of that there may not be someone more technically sound than Theron Nikolas.
Stew: There has been so many moments throughout Cameron’s career where she wasn’t meant to succeed, but she continuously manages to stand strong. Cameron is going to have to find everything she can physically muster and then some of she wants to leave tonight with that Answers World Championship, but if there’s anyone that could possibly find the way to stop the self proclaimed God Emperor – it is this woman.
(Cameron enters the ring, makes her way across the ring and into her corner. She closes her eyes as she places her head on the top turnbuckle, mumbling something to herself. She turns back towards the stage as “UltraNUMB” fades out and that familiar siren blasts through the speakers… and “I Hope You Suffer” by AFI hits.)
Talib: Time to kneel, Stew!
(Theron Nikolas slowly makes his way out through the curtain with The Queen’s Court following behind. The three stand on the stage as Theron raises the Answers World Championship high into the air to a CHORUS of boos. Theron looks at both Amber and Cleopatra as they nod their head and make their way to the back as Theron slowly makes his way down to the ring alone.)
Stew: That is something that I did not expect! Theron seemingly going to battle with Cameron Ella Ava alone as The Queen’s Court head backstage. You have to wonder what that’s going to do to Cameron’s game plan tonight; Amber defeated Donovan Cross to allow them ringside during this match, so Cameron would have prepared to have to counteract the three of them. But, now, Cameron seems to only have to worry about the champion.
Talib: Cameron can’t allow herself to relax now. She still has her back up against the wall; she has to be PERFECT if she wants to walk out of Grand Rampage tonight as champion. We watched as Theron adapted to everything Jamie O’Hara threw his way back at King of Elite, so if possible – Cameron needs to do things that Theron will not expect. You need to take Theron off his game; something that’s going to take him away from the plan he’s going to be walking into the war with tonight.
Stew: Easier said than done, but I will not write the challenger off. There’s that feeling in the air; EVERYBODY inside this stadium is behind Cameron. Everyone wants to see Cameron finally reach that mountain top after everything that she has gone through; everything that the 1% have put her through throughout the last ten months.
(Theron enters the ring and immediately steps to the middle and raises the Answers World Championship once more; his eyes directly pointed towards his challenger. Theron backs up into his corner as the referee as Stephie Love begins the introductions and “I Hope You Suffer” fades out.)
Stephie Love: Introducing first, the CHALLENGER, from Los Angeles, California, weighing in tonight AT ONE HUNDRED AND THIRTY POUNDS!!! SHE IS THE GODDESS!!!! CAMERON!!! ELLA!!!! AAAAAAAVVVVAAAA!!!!
(The thousands inside roar once more for the challenger as she stands determined.)
Stephie Love: Now, Introducing the CHAMPION, from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, weighing in tonight AT TWO HUNDRED AND TWENTY POUNDS!!!! HE IS THE GOD EMPEROR!!!! HE IS THE ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION!!!!!! THERON NIIIIIKKKOOOOLLLAAAASSSS!!!!
(Boo’s echo around the Melbourne Cricket Ground as Theron raises the Answers World Championship high into the air as that familiar smirk crosses his face. The referee takes the Answers World Championship and raises his in the middle of the ring before handing it to the time keeper and calling for the bell.)
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Stew: The bell rings and this Answers World Championship match is officially underway. Cameron immediately steps forward towards the middle of the ring as Theron remains in his corner. Theron slowly takes a step left and circles around the ring. Cameron is not taking her eyes off the Champion, and the two lock up! Theron overpowers Cameron and is able to take control with a side headlock! Cameron pushes her boot into the back of the knee of Theron and is able to slip free. Theron pushes back up to his feet and Cameron catches him with a forearm to the jaw! Cameron follows with a chop to the chest! Cameron looks for another forearm, but Theron slips underneath and locks the waist of the challenger! Theron successfully able to take Cameron down to the canvas and transitions back into the headlock! Theron using that power advantage to keep the challenge grounded!
Talib: Theron is showing his game plan early; force Cameron to wrestle at his pace. Theron has so much experience in competing in long, gruelling matches. Time doesn’t seem to be a factor to the man. Cameron pushing herself back up to a knee, but Theron transitions into a front face lock and drives the point of her knee into the chest of Cameron! Theron is able to force Cameron back down to the canvas and this time drives that knee into the top of the head! Theron maintain that front face lock long, transitioning again – this time locking the waist of Cameron and POWERS her up! DEADLIFT RELEASE GERMAN SUPLEX! Cameron lands on her feet! Cameron backs into the corner and Theron scrambles back to his feet and shoots forward! Cameron get the boot up! Cameron pops up to the middle rope and leaps!
Stew: Theron catches her on his shoulders! Cameron trapped in that fireman’s carry position, but she fights! Cameron with an elbow to the side of Theron’s head! Cameron fires with a second and is able to slide off the back of Theron and down to her feet! Cameron locks the waist and Theron fires with a back elbow, but Cameron ducks underneath! The moment swinging Theron around – AND CAMERON POWERS THERON UP AND OVER WITH A NORTHERN LIGHTS SUPLEX! Cameron maintains her grip, but not the bridge, floating back over and has the Answers World Champion trapped in that full mount position!
Talib: Beautiful execution and transition from the challenger! Cameron fires with a right hand! Theron immediately covering up, but it gives Cameron the opportunity to take a shot at the ribs! That shot hurt the champion! Theron taking in a deep breath AND CAMERON CATCHES THERON WITH A FALLING FOREARM TO THE JAW! Theron’s head crushed between Cameron’s forearm and the canvas! Cameron getting back to her feet and Theron remains down; there’s no doubt she has the champion stunned early! Theron pushing himself up to a knee, but that’s as far as Cameron allows him to get! Cameron cracks him in the chest with a shoot kick!
Stew: Cameron isn’t holding back in the slightest! Cameron fires with a second! The force behind these kicks almost knocking Theron back down to the canvas! Look! Cameron grabs one of the arms of Theron AND FIRES WITH A BRUTAL KNEE – BUT, THERON IS ABLE TO AVOID THE CONTACT! OH MY GOD! THERON POPPED UP TO HIS FEET AND CRACKED CAMERON IN THE MOUTH WITH A CLOSED FISTED RIGHT HAND! CAMERON DROPS DOWN TO A CANVAS AS THE REFEREE IMMEDIATELY BACKS THERON INTO THE CORNER AND GIVES HIM AN ABSOLUTE SERVING!
Talib: That’s an illegal strike from Theron, but by god was it effective! He may have just knocked the challengers teeth down her throat! You can see the blood coming from the mouth of Cameron Ella Ava – which just seems to bring a sick smile to the face of the Answers World Champion! Theron pushes his way past the referee and stalks! I think things are about to get really bad for Cameron, Stew! Cameron pushing herself up to her hands and knees, trying to shake out the cobwebs, but Theron grabs a handful of her hair and drags her back up to her feet. Theron with a European uppercut! Cameron refusing to fall and Theron connects with another! Cameron stagger back against the ropes AND THERON CRACKS HER ON THE CHEST WITH AN EMPHATICALLY UNFORGIVING CHOP! The look on the face of Cameron tells the entire story, Stew!
Stew: Theron keeping this match at his pace; he wants to methodically take Cameron apart! But, Cameron fights! Cameron with a forearm – but Theron cuts her off with a knee to the stomach! PENDULUM BACKBREAKER! THERON DROPS CAMERON SPINE FIRST ACROSS THE KNEE! Cameron’s spine jarring in pain as that smirk returns to the face of Theron.
Theron: I told you Cameron! I told you that there is no hope for the hopeless!
Stew: This is what Theron needs to avoid; he cannot get too overconfident! Cameron trying to push herself back up to her feet, but Theron presses his boot across the side of her face and pushes her back down. Theron standing over Cameron as she forces herself back up to a knee. Look at Cam! She wipes her mouth, seeing the blood – and asks Theron is that’s the best he can throw! Theron gritting his teeth as he lifts Cameron back to her feet AND CONNECTS WITH A VIOLENT ELBOW TO THE HEAD! Cameron refuses to drop and asks Theron again! THERON WITH A FOREARM – AND CAMERON FIRES BACK WITH ONE OF HER OWN! CAMERON FOLLOWS WITH A CHOP TO THE CHEST! FOREARM FROM THE CHALLENGER! CHOP! FOREARM! CHOP! FOREARM! THERON TRYING TO COVER UP, BUT HE’S BEING FORCED BACK AGAINST THE ROPES! CAMERON BACKS UP AND LOOKS TO SEND HIM UP AND OVER!! THERON DROPS THE SHOULDER AND USES THE MOMENTUM TO LAUNCH CAMERON OVER THE TOP ROPE! CAMERON CATCHES HERSELF ON THE TOP ROPE AND LANDS ON THE APRON!
Talib: Theron turns around – AND CAMERON CATCHES THERON IN THE MOUTH WITH A KICK! Theron stumbles back and drops to a knee AS CAMERON SPRINGBOARDS OFF THE TOP ROPE AND SPIKES THE ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION INTO THE CANVAS WITH A TORNADO DDT! THERON IS DOWN, CLUTCHING AT HIS NECK AS CAMERON SHOOTS INTO THE COVER!
ONE!!!!!… TWO!!!!!… KICKOUT!!!
Talib: Theron kicks out!
Stew: But, Cameron may have found the first crack in the armour of the Answers World Champion! I said it; Theron cannot get too overconfident and it was that overconfidence that allowed the opening for the challenger! LOOK! LOOK! CAMERON’S LOOK FOR THAT AVA LOCK! THERON REALISES IMMEDIATELY AND IS ABLE TO SCRAMBLE HIS WAY FREE AND TO THE OUTSIDE! He’s still feeling the effect of that DDT – WOW! CAMERON ELLA AVA FLYING OVER THE TOP ROPE AND TAKES OUT THERON NIKOLAS WITH A TOPE CON HILO!! CAMERON SHOOTS BACK TO HER FEET AND LETS OUT A ROAR OF PURE EMOTION AS THE CROWD CHEER HER ON!!
Talib: Theron staggers back to his feet and Cameron sends him back under the bottom rope and into the ring! Cameron shoots in after the champion, who’s pushing his way back up to a knee! Cameron stalks the champion and powers him up onto her shoulders! CAMERON LOOKING FOR BREAKING BARRIERS! NO! THERON TWISTS HIMSELF OFF OF CAMERON’S SHOULDERS AND COUNTERS! HE HAS CAMERON IN POSITION! KING’S REQUIEM!!!!! NO, CAMERON SPINS OUT AND KEEPS A LOCK ON THERON’S WRIST!!! JUMPING KNEELIFT!!!! THERON CAUGHT FLUSH ON THE JAW!!!! THERON FALLS DOWN TO HIS KNEES!!! THE IRONY!!! THERON ON HIS KNEES IN FRONT OF THE GODDESS AS SHE KEEPS A HOLD OF THE WRIST OF THERON – AND FIRES WITH AN ABSOLUTELY BRUTAL, VIOLENT KNEE TO THE FACE OF THE ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION!!!!! COME ON, THERON!!!
Stew: CAMERON COVERS!!!!
ONE!!!!!!… TWO!!!!!!… KICKOUT!!!!
Talib: THERON GETS THE SHOULDER UP!!!
Stew: BUT, CAN YOU FEEL IT, TALIB? YOU CAN FEEL SOMETHING SPECIAL COMING!!! CAMERON ROLLS THERON ONTO HIS STOMACH!!! THE AVA LOCK!!!! THERON TRAPPED IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING!!!! THERON IS IN AGONY!!! THERON TRYING TO SCRATCH AND CLAW HIS WAY TOWARDS THE ROPES, BUT YOUR SPINE ISN’T MEANT TO BEND IN THAT DIRECTION!!! THERON ROLLS AND FORCES CAMERON’S SHOULDERS TO THE CANVAS!!!
Stew: CAMERON REALISES THE HOLD AND ROLLS BACK!!! CAMERON SCRAMBLES TO HER FEET AND SHOOTS FORWARD!!!
Talib: BUT, THERON POPS BACK UP AND CATCHES HER!! REVERSE STO!!! CAMERON DRIVEN INTO THE CANVAS AND THERON FLOATS OVER AND LOCKS THE WAIST!!!! THERON POWERS CAMERON UP AND OVER WITH THE DEADLIFT GERMAN SUPLEX!!! CAMERON DROPPED ON THE BACK OF HER HEAD AND NECK!!!! THERON GETS BACK TO HIS FEET AND BACK INTO THE CORNER!!! THERON CALLING CAMERON BACK TO HER FEET AND SHE DEFINITELY IS NOT DOWN FOR LONG!!! CAMERON’S BACK TO HER FEET IN THE OPPOSITE CORNER – AND THERON CRUSHES HER BACK INTO THOSE TURNBUCKLES WITH A RUNNING EUROPEAN UPPERCUT!!!! CAMERON ELLA AVA CLUTCHING ONTO THE TOP ROPE, REFUSING TO DROP AS THERON DOESN’T LOOK TO SLOW DOWN!!! THERON SHOOTS BACK ACROSS THE RING AND BACK TOWARDS CAMERON!!!!
Stew: BUT, CAMERON CUTS HIM OFF WITH A RUNNING MUSHROOM STOMP!!! BOTH FEET DRIVING THERON DOWN TO THE CANVAS!!!! THERON ISN’T DOWN FOR LONG, STUMBLING BACK TO HIS FEET!!!! CAMERON POWERS THERON UP ONTO HER SHOULDERS!!!! ROLLING DEATH VALLEY DRIVER!!!!! THERON DRIVEN BACK INTO THE CANVAS AS CAMERON SMOOTHLY LANDS ON HER FEET!!! THE SLAM LEAVING THERON SEATED IN THE MIDDLE
OF THE RING AS CAMERON BACKS INTO THE CORNER!!!!! IN EXCELSIS!!!!!! BANG!!!!! BICYCLE KNEE TO THE ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION!!!!! THERON IS DOWN!!!!! CAMERON COVERS!!!!!!
ONE!!!!!!!!!… TWO!!!!!!!!!!… THR-KICKOUT!!!!!!
Talib: THERON KICKS OUT!!!!!
Stew: Cameron cannot allow that to halt her momentum! Cameron needs to finish this! This is the moment that Cameron needs to realise her dream! Cameron pushing herself back to her feet and calls for the end! Theron looks completely out of it as Cameron stalks more determined than I believe that I have ever seen her! Theron… rolls out of the ring!
Talib: Brilliant! Fucking brilliant from the Answers World Champion! Theron with enough wherewithal to create distance between he and Cameron!
Stew: But, Cameron doesn’t look like she’s willing to give it to him for long! Theron trying to shake out the cobwebs, but the damage is evident! Cameron lining the champion up; Theron may have had enough wherewithal to get out of the ring, but I don’t believe he knows what’s coming! CAMERON PICKING UP MOMENTUM AND SHOOTS THROUGH THE ROPES WITH THAT TOPE SUICIDA!!!! WAIT, NO!!!! THERON MOVED OUT OF THE WAY!!!! CAMERON CRASHING AND BURNING INTO THE BARRICADE!!!!!
Talib: You talk about Theron’s overconfidence, but that’s what happens when you move without thought, Stew! Cameron throwing caution to the wind and it backfired BIG TIME!
ONE!… TWO!… THREE!…
Stew: Cameron is down, but Theron still trying to regain his bearings! Theron grabs Cameron and drags her back to her feet! The champion rolls the challenger back into the ring and slowly follows! Cameron has barely moved since hitting that barricade…
Talib: It’s time Theron puts Cameron down for good! Cameron slowly pushing herself up to her hands and knees AND THERON LOCKS THE WRIST! THERON FORCING CAMERON BACK TO HER FEET AND LOCKS HER INTO POSITION! THERON IS GOING TO TAKE HER HEAD OFF!!! THERON PUSHES CAMERON AWAY!!!! TOUCH OF HEROINE!!!!! WRIST LOCK SHORT ARM LARIAT!!!!

WOW!!!! CAMERON FIRES BACK WITH THAT STANDING FOREARM SMASH AND THEY BOTH GO DOWN!!!!
Stew: There has never been a time in Theron’s career like this! He has never found himself without an answer! A way to break someone’s spirit, their will! That’s how much this means to Cameron Ella Ava! Both are down, but Cameron still has a hold of the wrist of Theron! Cameron pushing herself back to her feet and is dragging the Champion with her! Theron struggling to get back to his feet! Cameron, just like Theron did to her earlier, pushing her boot into the side of the face of the champion pushing him back down to the canvas! Cameron needs to finish him! Theron crawling into the corner and Cameron just watches! Theron sits there looking back at Cameron, forced to look at the woman that may be about to take everything away! DISGUSTING! THERON JUST SPAT AT CAMERON!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
(“I Hope You Suffer” by AFI hits as boos reign down from the crowd. Theron rolls off of Cameron and both remain down on the canvas)
Stephie Love: THE WINNER OF THIS MATCH…. AND STIIIIIIILLLLLLLLL THE ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION!!!!!!! THERON NIIIIIIIIKKKKOOOOOLLLLLAAAASSS!!!!
Stew: DAMNIT, GOD DAMNIT!!!
Talib: Hahahaha! He did it! Theron did it! Theron beats Cameron! Theron retains the Answers World Championship! THE GOD EMPEROR STILL REIGNS OVER DYNASTY!!!
Stew: Theron didn’t beat Cameron! Theron cheated! Theron survived Cameron tonight!
Talib: I can hear you, Stew! IT’S A CELEBRATION! I HOPE YOOOOOU DOOOO!!!! I HOPE YOU SUFFER!!!! I HOPE YOU DOOOOO!!!!!!!
(Theron slowly pushes himself back to his feet and is handed the Answers World Championship. He raises it high into the air as boos continue to reign down.)
Talib: THEY LOVE HIM, STEW!! SING IT WITH ME!! I HOPE YOU!!! DO!!!! I HOPE YOU SUFFER!!!! I HOPE YOOOOOU DOOOO!!!!! JUST LIKE I SUFFERED!!!!!
Stew: I can’t believe you…
(Theron slowly limps up the ramp as Cameron recovers in the ring. Theron stands on the ramp, looking back down at Cameron in the ring as The Queen’s Court joins him. They celebrate before the camera cuts elsewhere.)
(Commercial break: an ad for for Legos featuring The Round Table.)
(Lights cut out and smoke fills the stage as “Rise” by League of Legends begins to play to cheers from the crowd. Soon, we see Raven Roberts walk out with a pair of large black wings on her back. She throws her arms out and poses for the fans who give her a strong positive reception.)
*”Welcome to the wild, no heroes or villains”*
*”Welcome to the war we’ve only begun, so Pick up your weapon and face it There’s blood on the crowd go and take it”*
(Raven then goes to walk down the ramp, eyes fixed on the ring. She makes her way down and Walks up to the ring steps.)
*”You get one shot to make it out alive, so Higher and higher you chase it. It’s deep in your bones, go and take it This is your moment, now is your time, so”*
(Raven climbs up the corner turnbuckle from the outside and throws her arms out to the sides, posing at the top as the crowd cheers)
*”Prove yourself and RISE, RISE Make’em remember you — RISE Push through hell and RISE, RISE They will remember you — RISE”*
(She unlatches her wings and they fall to the ground as she looks out over the Australian audience once more as they continue to cheer.)
*”Welcome to the climb up, reach for the summit. Visions pray that one false step leads the end, so HIgher and higher you chase it It’s deep in your blood, go and take it This is your moment, take to the skies.” *
(Raven jumps down from the turnbuckle and goes to stand on the second rope for the hard cam before hopping down and walking to her corner.)
CJ Hana: The old Raven Roberts is long gone, ladies and gentlemen. You’re now witnessing the new and improved Raven after splitting up with the Crowe’s Nest. Raven’s focused on a different journey in her career and tonight, she will look to add on for the very first time, some Women’s World Championship gold.
Gavin Kirkland: I believe she has what it takes to win it–and I’m not saying it will be easy. But she’s definitely earned her way for this moment. Her time is now after suffering to capture the title at Road to Redemption to one of the most horrendous champions we’ve had since Cloud Matsuda. There’s only one person standing in her way but I’m sure Raven has the ability and strength to overcome this obstacle here tonight!
(The lights begin to flash as “Unfuckwitable” by Deez Nuts begins to blase all throughout the arena. A few moments pass as Sienna Jade emerges with her EAW Women’s World Championship in her hand. She poses and raises her title high as the camera focuses on the glistening gold.)
(Sienna then turns around and shows off her leather jacket with the letters, “UNFUCKWITABLE” attached. She turns and takes the championship and throws it on her shoulder as she begins to strut down the ramp. Sienna slides under the ring and climbs the nearest turnbuckle as she raises her title above her head with her two hands)
CJ Hana: And here comes that one person! She’s been on an absolute roll since becoming Women’s World Champion! She’s already beaten the best and the Iconic Cup showed us that when Sienna cleanly defeated the Hall of Famer, Cleopatra for her first title defense. Some could even say she’s the reason the Crowe’s Nest flew away like the quitters they are. Now she’s looking to place a bullet in another bird.
Gavin Kirkland: Sienna Jade is determined to retain here after losing the Unified Tag Team Championship earlier. This should be a tough challenge, however, as Raven has more height and size advantage over her. I’m sure Serena Bennett is watching closely as well because either of these two women will be hard to deal with come Pain for Pride. Regardless of that, this should be an instant classic.
(Sienna and Raven stand on opposite sides of the ring as Maria Del Rey steps between them in the middle. The spotlight is focused on her as Sienna and Raven stare at each other awaiting their introductions)
Maria Del Rey: The following match is scheduled for ONE FALL —
Crowd: ONE FALL!
Maria Del Rey: — AND, IT’S FOR THE ELITE ANSWERS WRESTLING WOMEN’S WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP!
(Crowd cheers are head throughout the arena)
Maria Del Rey: Introducing first, the challenger, from Las Vegas, Nevada and weighing in at 147 POUNDSSSSS… SHE IS THE BIRD OF PREY! RAAAAAVVVVVEEEENNNNN ROOOOBBBBEEEERRRTTTTTSSSS!!!
(The fans erupt in cheers for Raven Roberts while she poses for the crowd and gestures for the title. Sienna Jade’s face looks disgusted by the amount of support from the Australian crowd as she awaits her introduction)
Maria Del Rey: AND, introducing her opponent, representing Jaded Hearts, from San Diego, California, she is the CURRENT ELITE ANSWERS WRESTLING WOMEN’S WORLD CHAMPION, “UNFUCKWITABLE” SSSIIIIEEEEENNNNNNNNAAAAA JAAAADDDDDDEEEEEEE!!!
(Sienna Jade raises the Unified Women’s World Championship high in the air as the crowd gives her a negative reaction. She yells in the face of Raven Roberts before handing title off to the official of this match, Mari Solo, who raises the title up then shows it to Raven then gives it to the timekeeper)
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Gavin Kirkland: This championship match is underway! Sienna Jade is still talking trash to Raven Roberts in her face. Raven is remaining calm as she smiles in Sienna’s face and SMACK! RAVEN JUST SMACKED THE TASTE OUT OF SIENNA’S MOUTH! SIENNA IS IN SHOCK AS SHE LOOKS OVER AT THE CROWD!
CJ Hana: Now Sienna slowly turns her face back around to Raven who nods her head and continues to smile in Sienna’s face. Sienna looks frustrated and grits her teeth before attacking but Raven ducks out of the way from a Sienna clothesline! AND NOW RAVEN WITH ANOTHER SLAP TO SIENNA’S FACE! THIS IS EMBARRASSING!
Gavin Kirkland: Raven is toying with Sienna right now, getting into the head of Sienna Jade early on in this match-up! But it looks like the fun games are over as Sienna CHARGES again but this time runs into a hard clothesline from Raven! Sienna drops to the mat quickly after that hard shot from Raven. And now Raven grabs Sienna by her blonde hair and goes for a Spike DDT! IT CONNECTS AS SIENNA ROLLS OUTSIDE OF THE RING! Raven is already looking impressive early on in this match!
CJ Hana: Raven follows her outside of the ring and stares at the downed Sienna as she tries to roll over on her knees. But Raven kicks Sienna in the middle of her stomach and calmly watches Sienna try to crawl away. Raven now pulls Sienna by the hair again and bounces her face off the floor! You can tell Raven wants to pace herself early on, something Cleopatra didn’t do at Iconic Cup. Raven also wants payback from last week on Empire as she is taking her time to dismantle Sienna. Mari Solo, our official, wants this match back inside the ring but Raven’s not listening as she pulls Sienna back up and swings her back into the barricade! You can hear the pain from that damaged hit. Sienna is now standing in front of the barricade while Raven CHARGES! BUT SIENNA MOVES OUT OF THE WAY AND RAVEN GOES FLYING INTO THE BARRICADE! HOLY SHIT!
Gavin Kirkland: Raven just broke through the barricade! We already saw one woman go through it tonight! Now, Raven is down as Sienna stumbles back onto her feet with a smirk on her face, looking at the damage done. Raven just made one simple mistake and it might cost her this match! Sienna goes over and grabs Raven back up and she swings her into the ring post! You can hear Raven’s head bounce off that post while she comes crashing down onto the floor! Sienna taunts the crowd as boo’s fill up the arena… Now Sienna rolls Raven back inside the ring for the first cover of this match!
CJ Hana: KICK-OUT BY RAVEN as Sienna looks over at the referee with a disgusted look.
Sienna Jade(off-mic): COUNT FASTER THAN THAT! THAT WAS THREE!
Gavin Kirkland: You could never satisfy our champion as she jumps back on top of Raven with left and rights! She’s pummeling into her with those fists! Raven is trying to cover herself up but Sienna is relentlessly trying to break her face. She finally stops for a moment before lifting Raven back up and swings her into the turnbuckle! SHE FOLLOWS RAVEN AS SIENNA CHARGES BUT RAVEN WITH A ELBOW THAT SMACKS SIENNA RIGHT IN THE FACE! Sienna is holding her jaw as Raven quickly climbs up the top turnbuckle!
CJ Hana: TOP ROPE MISSILE DROP-KICK! SHE KICKS SIENNA AND PUSHES HER BACK INTO THE OPPOSITE TURNBUCKLE! SIENNA CHARGES BACK AGAIN BUT RAVEN WITH A BIG BOOT INTO SIENNA’S FACE THAT PLANTS HER BACK ONTO THE CANVAS! RAVEN GOES FOR A QUICK COVER!
Gavin Kirkland: Sienna kicks out! Raven doesn’t hesitate to pull Sienna back up to her feet and goes for a Belly-to-belly suplex! SHE THROWS SIENNA JADE BACK DOWN ONTO THE MAT! She should cover her again! But I don’t think Raven is ready yet. She awaits for Sienna to pull herself back up and CHARGES! SHE’S GOING FOR A BODY SCISSORS BUT SIENNA DODGES OUT OF THE WAY! AND COMES BACK WITH A RUNNING KNEE LIFT! OUCH! I HOPE RAVEN DIDN’T LOSE A TOOTH AFTER THAT HARD KNEE TO THE FACE!!!
CJ Hana: Raven bounces back holding her face… Sienna grabs Raven and she’s going for the Fujiwara armbar! BUT RAVEN QUICKLY AVOIDS IT AND PUSHES SIENNA BACK OFF HER! RAVEN TRIES ANOTHER BIG BOOT BUT SIENNA DUCKS AND HITS A STIFF KICK TO RAVEN’S BACK! OUR CHAMPION IS ON A ROLL NOW BECAUSE SHE FINALLY GRABS A HOLD OF RAVEN INTO THAT ARMBAR! AND SHE’S HOLDING IT TIGHTLY!
Gavin Kirkland: Raven has a choice to make now! Will she tap or snap?! RAVEN IS SCREAMING IN PAIN AS THE WOMEN’S CHAMPION IS APPLYING HEAVY PRESSURE WITH THAT ARMBAR! BUT WAIT FOR A SECOND! RAVEN ROLLS OUT OF THE ARMBAR AND LIFTS SIENNA UP WITH A NORTHERN LIGHTS SUPLEX! SHE PINS SIENNA JADE!
CJ Hana: Sienna kicks out! Raven is now shown with a frustrated look on her face! She thought she had her with that impressive counter towards the armbar! She looks over at the referee as Sienna did earlier and claps her hands gesturing for a faster count.
Raven Roberts(off-mic): COME ON!
Gavin Kirkland: You can tell Raven wants this worse than ever! She wants to finally show the world why the Bird of Prey is the top face of this company! Raven is now pulling Sienna back up to her feet. She whips Sienna to the ropes but Sienna uses her arms to catch the ring ropes as Raven was going for another drop-kick! Sienna rolls outside of the ring, trying to recover as she walks over to the time-keeper and grabs her world title! What the hell is she doing?
CJ Hana: Sienna Jade is walking out of this match with the world title… She can’t just do that!
Gavin Kirkland: I think she just did as she’s going back up the entrance ramp. I think she’s had enough of Raven Roberts, who looks confused but goes right after Sienna Jade! RAVEN CHASING SIENNA, AND SHE CATCHES UP TO HER! RAVEN IS NOT ALLOWING HER MOMENT TO SLIP AWAY! SHE GRABS SIENNA BY HER HAIR AS SIENNA GRIPS TIGHTLY ONTO THAT WORLD TITLE, BUT DROPS IT RIGHT OUTSIDE OF THE RING! RAVEN THROWS SIENNA JADE INTO THE SIDE OF THE RING! AND THEN SHE CRUSHES SIENNA JADE WITH HER KNEES! RAVEN IS NOT LETTING UP EITHER AS SHE MOVES BACK AND CHARGES AGAIN AT SIENNA JADE! BUT SIENNA JADE MOVES OUT OF THE WAY!
Gavin Kirkland: Raven’s stomach hits the side of the ring as Sienna quickly moves back inside of the ring and on top of the ring ropes! SHE’S GOING FOR THE STARSTRUCK! STARSTRUCK! SHE MOONSAULTS ON TOP OF RAVEN! WHAT A MOVE BY THE UNFUCKWITABLE! BOTH WOMEN ARE DOWN NOW!
CJ Hana: But Sienna is getting back onto her feet first as Raven is struggling from that hard hit and continues to grab onto her stomach! Sienna eyes Raven and pushes her back inside the ring. She climbs back on top of the ring ropes and I think she’s going for another high-risk maneuver here! SHE JUMPS OFF THE ROPES BUT RAVEN PLANTS HER WITH A CODEBREAKER! SIENNA IS DROPPED BY THE CODEBREAKER FROM RAVEN ROBERTS! SHE HAS IT! ALL SHE NEEDS TO DO IS COVER AGAIN!
Gavin Kirkland: But she doesn’t! Raven is still trying to recover but I think she’s signaling for the end here, CJ! SHE AWAITS SIENNA TO STAND UP AND A SPINNING HEEL KICK! BUT SIENNA MOVES OUT OF THE WAY AS THE KICKS KNOCKS THE REFEREE OUTSIDE OF THE RING! MARI SOLO IS OUT COLD AS RAVEN IS STUNNED AS SHE LOOKS DOWN AT THE FALLEN REF. SHE BETTER WATCH OUT BECAUSE SIENNA JADE FOLLOWS UP BEHIND HER! BACK-BREAKER! SHE HITS RAVEN WITH A BACK-BREAKER! AND SIENNA IS QUICK ON HER FEET–SHE SLIDES UNDERNEATH THE ROPES, EXITS THE RING AND–SHE HAS THE WORLD TITLE IN HAND!! SIENNA WITH A QUICK RECOVERY AS SHE’S ABOUT TO PLANT RAVEN WITH THAT BELT!! SHE CHARGES AT HER WITH THE BELT AS RAVEN TURNS AROUND!! AND–
CJ Hana: RAVEN USES THE ROPES AND DUCKS!! SIENNA GOES RIGHT OUTSIDE THE RING! BUT WHAT IS RAVEN THINKING NOW?! RAVEN IS HEADING UP THE TOP TURNBUCKLE AS THE DOWNED SIENNA IS ON THE OUTSIDE!!! RAVEN RISES ON THE TOP TURNBUCKLE, CJ!!
CJ Hana: SHE’S SPREADING HER WINGS!! SHE’S GOING FOR “RAVEN’S WINGS!!!!” THE SPIRAL TAP AS SHE LANDS ON TOP OF SIENNA JADE ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING!! HOLY SHIT!
Gavin Kirkland: RAVEN MIGHT HAVE CAUSED MORE DAMAGE TO HERSELF AS WELL WITH THAT MOVE AS BOTH OF THESE WOMEN LAY ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING!
CJ Hana: The referee has finally recovered slightly! She’s pulled herself back inside the ring as Raven is slowly pulling herself back up! Raven grabs Sienna Jade and tosses her back inside the ring! Raven then whips Sienna into the turnbuckles but Sienna quickly climbs up the turnbuckles!
Gavin Kirkland: RAWWWWWW SIIIIEEEENNNNNAAAA!!! SIENNA JADE JUST HITS RAW SIENNA OFF THE TOP TURNBUCKLES!! AND RAVEN IS DONE! THIS IS IT!! SIENNA JADE GOES FOR THE COVER!
CJ Hana: NO!!! RAVEN SOMEHOW KICKS OUT AT THE LAST SECOND! SIENNA JADE IS STUNNED! SHE CAN’T BELIEVE IT! RAVEN’S DREAMS ARE STILL ALIVE! BUT SIENNA JADE GOES BACK ON THE RING APRON! SHE’S GOING FOR ANOTHER SPRINGBOARD DROPKICK!!
Gavin Kirkland: BUT SHE RUNS INTO A CLAYMORE KICK BY RAVEN!! “TALON” CONNECTS!! RAVEN WITH A HUGE COUNTER AS SIENNA JADE’S LIGHTS ARE OUT WITH THAT KICK! AND NOW RAVEN GOES FOR THE COVER!! WE HAVE A NEW CHAMPION!! NEW CHAMPION!! NEW CHAMPION!!
Gavin Kirkland: SIENNA JADE KICKS OUT! SIENNA IS STILL IN THIS! I can’t believe my perverted eyes. Sienna is showing us all exactly what makes her an “Unfuckwithable” champion as she refuses to give up! Raven getting frustrated here as she slowly pulls herself up using the ring ropes. Raven stands on spaghetti legs as she heads back over to Sienna, tries to pull her up from the hair–AND SIENNA WITH A SHINING WIZARD! OUT OF NOWHERE! I DIDN’T THINK SIENNA HAD ANYTHING LEFT IN HER! SIENNA FALLS TO THE GROUND AFTER THE SHINING WIZARD CONNECTS, AND RAVEN GOES DOWN WITH HER! SIENNA JADE MANAGES TO DRAG HERSELF OVER TO RAVEN ROBERTS, BARELY GETS AN ARM OVER HER FOR THE COVER, AND THE STILL DAZED REF GOES FOR THE COUNT!
CJ Hana: WHAT THE HELL?! RAVEN KICKS OUT!!! AND THIS CROWD CAN’T BELIEVE IT!! THEY’RE GOING ABSOLUTELY WILD AS WE OBSERVE THE LOOK ON SIENNA JADE’S FACE, IN COMPLETE AND UTTER DISBELIEF THAT RAVEN KICKED OUT OF THAT! AND THE REFEREE IS STILL STRUGGLING TO GAIN FULL CONSCIOUSNESS AS SHE HANGS HER HEAD! SHE DOESN’T SEE SIENNA GRABBING THAT WOMEN’S WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP BELT FROM THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING! SHE’S GOING TO TRY AND USE IT AGAIN, EVEN THOUGH IT DIDN’T WORK SO WELL FOR HER THE FIRST TIME!
Gavin Kirkland: AND RAVEN DOESN’T EITHER! SHE PULLS HERSELF UP, TURNS HER HEAD LEFT AND RIGHT, LOOKING FOR SIENNA–I DON’T THINK RAVEN KNOWS EXACTLY WHERE SHE’S AT! SIENNA WITH THE TITLE, TAKES A SHOT STRAIGHT TO THE SKULL OF RAVEN ROBERTS! RAVEN TETERS, THE REF DOESN’T SEE IT! SIENNA THROWS THE TITLE INTO THE TURNBUCKLE CORNER OF THE RING! RAVEN IS DAZED, SHE BETTER WATCH OUT–
CJ Hana: RAW SIENNA AGAIN FROM THE UNFUCKWITABLE CHAMPION!!! AND IT CONNECTS!!! SIENNA JADE GOES FOR THE COVER!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Maria Del Rey: Here’s your winner and STILL the UNIFIED WOMEN’S CHAMPION… SSSSIIIIIIIIEEEEENNNNNAAAAAAAAA JAAAAAAAAAAADDDEEE!
(“Unfuckwithable” begins to play throughout the arena speakers once again.)
CJ Hana: Sienna Jade retains! She did what she had to do in order to make sure that she keeps her title, despite an incredible challenger in Raven Roberts. She stole this one from Raven, who was the more dominant competitor of this match. She almost gave everything she had and fought back despite the odds! She should still feel proud of herself even in defeat. I’m sure we’ll see Raven fighting for this opportunity again.
Gavin Kirkland: Raven was amazing tonight, CJ. But you still have to give Sienna some credit. She’ll do anything to remain on top as champion! She didn’t think Raven deserved this moment, and she made that clear when she stole it away from her tonight!
(Sienna Jade rolls off Raven Robert’s body as she stumbles while raising her hands in victory as “Unfuckwithable” continues to play, until “Surfin” by Kid Cudi cuts it off. Sienna Jade is shocked as she turns her head to the entrance ramp and Serena Bennett walks out confidently with a smirk on her face, the crowd cheering wildly for the Women’s Grand Rampage winner.)
CJ Hana: SERENA BENNETT! The winner of the 2019 Women’s Grand Rampage is here, right now, and she’s got her eyes set right on Sienna Jade!
Gavin Kirkland: Now what the hell is that bitch doing out here?
(Serena Bennett goes inside the ring staring at Sienna Jade, who is also staring back at Serena Bennett with a worried look. Serena grabs the Women’s World Championship that was lying on the corner of the ring.)
Gavin Kirkland: Uh oh… This doesn’t seem pretty.
(She stares right into the Women’s World Championship before looking up at the Pain for Pride logo above the rafters then back at Sienna Jade, who hesitates to stand up to Serena.)
Sienna Jade (off-mic): THAT IS MINE! (Pointing at her championship)
(Serena hands the belt back to Sienna who she snatches it out of Serena’s hands. The two women stare eye-to-eye with each-other as the camera angles them with the Pain For Pride logo in their reflection.)
(An advertisement for a local Australian locksmith company airs featuring Amber Keys)
(A suicide prevention ad airs featuring Chris Elite)
(A package airs displaying the history of the Grand Rampage highlighting past winners such as Masters, Captain Charisma, Cy Henderson, Johnny Ventura, Hades the Hellraiser, Devan Dubian & Impact. Different stats and records are highlighted such as the fact that Mr. DEDEDE holds the record of most appearances in the match with seven. Impact holds the record for longest time spent with two hours, forty-four minutes, and fifty-eight seconds in the ring, set at EAW’s only 40 man rampage in history. Kendra Shamez is the first female to ever appear in the male rampage match, making her the first of five. All of that plus more, before finally coming to 2019.)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen the following contest is THE THIRTY MAN OVER THE TOP ROPE GRAND RAMPAGE MATCH!!!
(The crowd rise to their feet and roar in excitement)
Bella Braxton: …Two participants will enter the ring to start the match with each participant having to be thrown OVER THE TOP and BOTH FEET MUST TOUCH THE FLOOR to be eliminated. After every two minutes a new participant will enter the match, until all thirty participants have entered the match! The remaining participant in the ring who survives this contest will be recognized as the WINNER OF THE GRAND RAMPAGE MATCH, AND WILL GO ON TO WRESTLE IN THE MAIN EVENT AT PAIN FOR PRIDE!!!
(The crowd explodes at the mention of Pain For Pride. It slowly grows quiet as we await the first entrant)
Bella Braxton: The participant that drew number one in the Grand Rampage match….
(‘It Aint Safe’ by Skepta plays throughout the arena as the self proclaimed ‘Main Event’ Charlie Marr makes his way out with Jordie Ripley by his side almost attached to him at the hip as the crowd rains down boos on both vociferously. Charlie mockingly blows kisses to the crowd and then smirks before him and Jordie share a moment to embrace in a brief kiss before Jordie Ripley makes her way back to the backstage area as Charlie Marr starts making his way down toward the ring.)
Bella Braxton: Introducing first…He hails from Tower Hamlets, London….He weighs in at TWO HUNDRED AND FORTY THREE POUNDS…..He’s self-proclaimed himself ‘THE MAIN EVENT.’….CHARRRRLLLLLIIIEEE MAAAARRRR RRRRR!!!!
James Peters: Well, this is definitely a shocker, and listen to these people already letting Charlie Marr’s bearded grill have it! This man is as despicable as they come! He’s literally broke up the best team in the tag ranks to the point that you wonder, who are the Unified Tag Team Champions if not Marrkade??? That’s how, despite their differences, Charile Marr and Daryl Kinkade became the center of the Tag Team division. I guess now you could say they WERE the tag team division!
Stew-o: Biased piece of trash! The Jaded Hearts are the Unified Tag Team Champions. Extra emphasis on the word ‘Unified’ because Marrkade was anything but that, and you know it! Nobody could touch them in the tag ranks because EAW’s tag team division is not really that strong right now! Did you see who the Jaded Hearts are going against this week!!??? Four guys that look like they played as extras in the movie ‘THOR’!
Eve: UH! RUDE!!! Their The Revolution thank you very much, and they represent our brand Showdown very well I must say! Anyways, why aren’t we talking about Charlie Marr who just entered the ring, who’s ready to eviscerate the next man who’s coming out of that curtain?
(Both James Peters and Stew-o shrug their shoulders before the cameras focus back on Charlie Marr in the ring mocking the fans who continue to boo him by puckering his lips and making a kissing gesture as his music dies. He’s shown pacing back and forth for a moment and then the focus is on the entrance.)
Bella Braxton: And now, for the participant that drew number two in the Grand Rampage match….
(‘Snakeskin’ By Example plays and Charlie Marr’s reaction is one of complete shock. Charlie’s mouth drops as he places his hands upon his bald temple, shaking his head as the fans get loud for Daryl Kinkade who finally arrives on the stage full of intensity and determination, and without another moment wasted Daryl darts toward the ring as Charlie Marr readies himself gesturing for Daryl to bring it.)
Bella Braxton: Introducing his opponent…He hails from Norwich, England….He weighs in at TWO HUNDRED POUNDS…..He’s ‘NORWICH’S FINEST’…..DAAAARRRRYYYYLLLL KIIIINNNNNKKKKAAADDDEEEE!!!!
James Peters: THE LOOK ON CHARLIE MARR’S FACE SAYS IT ALL! BUT HE HARDLY HAS A MOMENT TO THINK BECAUSE HERE COMES DARYL KINKADE!
Stew-o: YOU SAID IT JAMES! DARYL KINKADE….OH HE WAS SMART! HE JUST PULLED CHARLIE MARR’S FEET OUT FROM UNDER HIM AND PULLS HIM STRAIGHT OUT OF THE RING! AND THEY’RE BOTH SLUGGING IT OUT RIGHT NOW AT RINGSIDE! HOLY SHIT!!! HANDS AND FISTS ARE FLYING! KINKADE WITH THOSE KNIFE EDGED CHOPS AND MARR WITH PUMMELING BLOWS TO THE HEAD OF KINKADE!
Eve: Well, who ever decided that these two should start this match have made a grave mistake, because…well the bell hasn’t even officially been rang yet because neither man has officially entered the ring at the same time! OH MY GOD CHARLIE JUST PUT SO MUCH FORCE BEHIND THAT WHIP! BUT DARYL REVERSES IT INSTEAD AND SENDS CHARLIE MARR FORWARD WHERE HE COLLIDES WITH THE STEEL STEPS SO HARD THAT HE WAS JUST SENT TUMBLING OVER THEM AND HITTING THE FLOOR HARD!! DARYL KINKADE IS A MAN ON A MISSION, AND THAT MISSION IS QUITE EVIDENT AT THE MOMENT!
Stew-o: What? To kill Charlie Marr!!??
James Peters: THIS THING HAS ALREADY GOTTEN OUT OF HAND! DARYL HAS MOUNTED CHARLIE MARR AND IS JUST LAYING INTO HIM WITH REPEATED CLOSED FISTS TO THE FACE AND HEAD! THESE TWO ARE GOING TO START WORLD WAR THREE ALL BY THEMSELVES!!! Daryl grabbing Charlie Marr up and now SPEARS HIM RIGHT INTO THE NEARBY BARRICADE! THESE FANS IN AUSTRALIA ARE LIKE HYENAS RIGHT NOW JUST SALIVATING EVERY MOMENT OF THIS!
Daryl: I’M GOING TO SHOW YOU, CHARLIE! (Daryl grabs Charlie up by his beard forcing him to his feet) I’M GONNA (Hoisting the dazed Charlie Marr on his shoulder) SHOW YOU WHY YOU DON’T DESERVE ALL THIS!
Eve: NO! NO! NO! NO! OH MY JESUS!! DARYL JUST RAN AND LAUNCHED CHARLIE MARR LIKE A GODDAMN TORPEDO RIGHT INTO THE RING POST!!! THIS JUST CAUSED CHARLIE MARR TO DROP LIFELESS ON THE FLOOR! AND LOOK AT DARYL KINKADE!!?? HE’S WIDE EYED! HIS TONGUE IS WAGGING! THIS MAN IS INSANE! HE’S POSSESSED!
Stew-o: So much for your highly touted former tag team champions, James. Charlie Marr is completely busted open at the top of his forehead! He’s trying to..he doesn’t know even where he is! Daryl grabs up Charlie Marr and rolls the dead weight of Charlie Marr into the ring with Daryl following right behind sliding in as well!
(DING! DING! DING!)
James Peters: FINALLY! MERCIFULLY THIS MATCH ACTUALLY BEGINS!
Eve: Well, this may be only a matter of time as Daryl stalks Charlie Marr who’s on all fours crawling toward the ropes wearing the crimson mask already! Daryl still talking to Charlie, so much hate being unleashed by this young man right now! Daryl grabs for Charlie again by the bear-AND A LOW BLOW!
Stew-o: OUCH! There goes any chance of future D-Kinks right there! Daryl Kinkade crumbles to the canvas reaching ‘down there’ to see if he still has anything there after Charlie Marr just smashed those grapefruits! Now it’s Charlie Marr who’s slowly rising back to his feet! He stumbles a bit as he stands vertically again! Now it’s Charlie’s turn to let his former partner have it! Charlie is trying to cave Daryl’s face in with repeated stomps to the head and face of Daryl Kinkade! Now Charlie Marr stumbling away just looking around, not really looking for the opportunity to eliminate his former tag team partner!
James Peters: The referee on the outside sees what Charlie’s doing, but he’s not really there to stop him either! Charlie Marr is in that corner now untying that turnbuckle padding, exposing it! He made that look easy! Daryl trying to get back to his feet now as Charlie grabs him by the hair and then knees him in the midsection, and then another! NO CHARLIE DON’T!
Eve: CHARLIE JUST WHIPPED DARYL BUT DARYL REVERSES THE MOMENTUM!
Charlie: AHHHHHHHH!!! GOD-DAMMIT!!
Stew-o: Charlie’s back wrenched on that collision with the turnbuckle! Daryl goes to pick up Charlie, but Charlie fights out desperately! And CHARING CROSS!!! THAT DISCUS LARIAT JUST TURNED DARYL KINKADE INSIDE OUT!!! AND I MEAN KINKADE IS OUT!!! Charlie Marr grabs up Daryl Kinkade now, the almost lifeless body of Daryl Kinkade! He’s got him up on his shoulder and now he’s nearing those ropes!
Eve: Charlie Marr is looking for the first elimination of this match! This would be a big blow to someone like Daryl’s confidence if he were to be dumped out by his former tag team partner, a man he’s claimed up and down that he’s better than! But Daryl is fighting….he’s holding on to the top rope! Daryl is trying to maneuver his grip that he has on Charlie’s neck area! He’s cuffing his legs around the waist of Charlie Marr, desperately trying to hang on as Charlie is looking to with everything he has to get Daryl over the top rope! HE CAN’T DO IT! AND DARYL GOUGING THE EYES OF CHARLIE MARR! AND A KICK TO THE FACE OF CHARLIE MARR! MARR STAGGERS BACK AFTER THAT SHOT! KILLED. YOU. DEAD.!!! HIDDEN BLADE ELBOW BY DARYL KINKADE!! AND NOW BOTH MEN ARE DOWN!
(The tron comes to life for the count down to the next participant as the crowd looks on in anticipation.)
(‘La Marmelade de Ma Grand Mère’ by Florent Caubien comes on over the P.A. system as Provencal makes his way all giddy and excited which rouses up the crowd to a fevered pitch as the Frenchman continues down the ramp working to the crowd on his way to the ring.)
James Peters: And the third entrant into this contest, Showdown’s own, Provencal!
Stew-o: I don’t love this guy! Can we go to a commercial? Is that possible? Any additional promotional material you guys might be keeping from me that I should know about?
James Peters: Oh, come on. He’s not so bad, these people sure love him too!
Eve: And there you go again, Stew! Why you be hatin’ on Showdown for? Provencal is very much the equivalent of Woogie or Landerson on any given day!
Stew-o: Should I even dignify that with an answer? But you know, that’s okay. I don’t want back in that saddle anyways. Friday nights be paying me quite well at the moment, thank you. Oh, look he’s trying to read English off that fan’s sign! But maybe he should turn around and realize he’s got a match too!
James Peters: Both Charlie Marr and Daryl Kinkade are starting to rise up to their feet! Provencal’s music fades as it took quite a while for him to even make it on to the ring apron. I think his music track played through twice before he made it!
Eve: Look at this man! You can tell he’s so happy to be here right now as he poses on the apron! He’s going to set some sort of record in this match, I can feel it!
James Peters: He’s entering the ring officially now, let’s see what he’s got!
Stew-O: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! OH-HO MY G-HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! THERE’S YOUR RECORD EVE!! WOW!! PROVENCAL IS GONE!! HE CAME! HE SAW! AND HE JUST GOT BITCH SLAPPED RIGHT OUT OF THE RING, RIGHT OUT OF THIS MATCH!! WAS THAT EVEN OFFICIALLY TWO SECONDS!!??
Bella Braxton: Provencal has been eliminated!…
James Peters: I’ve just got word from our EAW Statisticians from the truck. 1.8 seconds was the final clock time from the moment Provencal planted both feet inside the ring. That’s officially a new Grand Rampage record time for an elimination! Well that was certainly unexpected!
(An instant replay shows Daryl deliver a superkick and then Charlie Marr deliver his finisher Charing Cross to Provencal but all in one motion which sends him over the top rope where tumbles to the floor.)
Eve: Indeed, James! I would officially say that elimination goes to Charlie, but there’s no doubting what we just saw. Is there?? Did we just see Charlie Marr and Daryl Kinkade work in tandem on that!!?? I think even they’re shocked as they stare at each other not knowing what to make of the occasion! Now Charlie is yelling something at Daryl! But what???
Charlie: Did you see that!!?? See what you’ve given up?? Look how easy that was??
Stew-O: He’s breaking the silence, trying to relieve some of the obvious tension in the building between them! Such a noble soul Charlie Marr is! This is the Charlie Marr that ladies like Jordie Ripley enjoy! The hardened exterior with a soft caring heart on the inside! Uh oh, wait wait! Daryl shoving Charlie back! Charlie hardly fazed at all by it!
Charlie: Is that all you got!!??? Hahaha!! That’s why you’ll never be able to lace my boots! Have you got any toughness at all in there!
Eve: Charlie walking up to Daryl who’s standing his ground! HEADBUTT BY CHARLIE MARR JUST NAILED DARYL KINKADE RIGHT BETWEEN THE EYES! DARYL STAGGERS BACK NEAR THE ROPES! CHARLIE CHARGES RIGHT AT DARYL AND SENDS HIM OVER THE TOP ROPE BUT CHARLIE’S MOMENTUM TAKES HIM OVER AS WELL!!! BOTH ARE HANGING ON TO THAT TOP ROPE FOR DEAR LIFE! NEITHER COMPETITOR WANTING TO LET THEIR DREAMS OF MAIN EVENTING PAIN FOR PRIDE GO LIKE THIS!!???
James Peters: CHARLIE JUST KICKED AT THE RIBCAGE OF DARYL WHO HAD JUST RE-ESTABLISHED HIS FOOTING ON THE APRON! BUT NOW HE’S DANGLING AGAIN! CHARLIE MAKES IT BACK INTO THE RING! CHARLIE TAKES A FEW STEPS BACK FULLY AWARE OF WHERE HE IS AND DARYL’S EVER COMPROMISING POSITION!! AND CHARLIE’S LOOKING FOR THE BIG BOOT! CHARLIE STOPS IN HIS TRACKS THOUGH!! LOOK AT DARYL!! HE JUST FOUND A BURST OF ENERGY AND PULLED HIMSELF ON TO THE APRON AND HOPS UP TO THE TOP ROPE LIKE IT WAS NOTHING!! WHO’S NEEDS THE FUCKING MATRIX!!?? MOONSAULT REVERSE DDT BY DARYL KINKADE TO CHARLIE MARR!! WOW!!! AND THESE FANS ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT!!
(The tron comes to life for the countdown and the crowd begins buzzing again in anticipation of who’s next.)
(‘Just cos you Got The power’ by Motörhead blares throughout the arena as Mark Michael’s walks out. He glares out at the scene, staring daggers out at the masses in attendance that give an unwelcoming reaction, lots of boos, but he just continues to glare and then stalks toward the ring.)
Stew-O: Well here’s someone who’s sure got the biggest stick up his ass this side of Tyler Wolfe! I mean, he represents Dynasty, of course! But does he really?? Anyways, Mark Michaels coming out as our number four entrant into the match! Wait, what’s he doing?
James Peters: He’s obviously got bad intentions in mind as he just glares into the ring while walking ringside! He’s just standing there glaring at the fallen bodies that are laid out in the ring! Michaels… he just reached down under the ring just beyond the apron! What’s he reaching for?
Eve: Probably the prime years of a career that’s going down the tubes faster than you can say the word ‘Dead’.
Stew-O: I OBJECT!
Eve/James: You do???
Stew-O: You bet I do! Mark Michaels is here to restore order in these parts! He’s Dynasty’s future hero that just so happens to be wearing best disguise and playing the best character EVER!!
Eve: What? As a low down, repressed, douche bag that’s lost his swag!!?? Someone who just wants attention? Weren’t you just bashing this guy?
Stew-O: I think you’re a little mixed up, Eve, my little crumpet. Plus, you would too if you’ve been constantly looked at and then passed over plenty of times over again! He’s been fed up for years, and now this is his chance to slaughter everyone in one fell swoop! It looks like he’s going to start by using that chair he just pulled out from under the ring as his chosen equalizer!
James Peters: This doesn’t look good for….Marrkade?? Mark Michaels slides the chair into the ring that he quickly takes back possession of upon sliding himself into the ring! Both Daryl Kinkade and Charlie Marr are now both pulling themselves up using the ropes! Charlie Marr is up first! He notices Mark Michaels and backs away as Mark has a weapon and could do just about anything he wishes with it! Charlie from a distance is tooting Mark’s horn for him, telling him he’s cool with Mark! Mark gets ready to raise that chair to Daryl Kinkade who looks behind him as Mark raises the chair to smash Kinkade with it! Mark brings it down, BUT IT’S STOPPED! CHARLIE MARR SHOVES MICHAELS BACK AGAINST THE ROPES AS THEY FIGHT OVER THAT CHAIR! MICHAELS TRYING TO KEEP HOLD OF THE CHAIR! THE STRUGGLE’S REAL, EVE!
Eve: KINKADE IS UP! KINKADE CHARGES FORWARD! HE GRABS MARK MICHAELS JUST AS CHARLIE MARR GETS SHOVED OFF BY MICHAELS! FLATLINER!! DARYL KINKADE JUST TOOK OUT MARK MICHAELS WITH THAT FLATLINER ON THE CHAIR!! WOW!!
Stew-O: Did we really just see Daryl Kinkade and Charlie Marr save the other in that exchange!!?? Can you two really just kind of decide if you’re going to be a team or just kill each other already??? No wonder you two are so damn inseparable, you can’t function right without the other without the other’s permission! Jesus Christ! I wanna see something interesting now! Stop just staring at each other, unless you two are into each other like that!
Eve: Charlie and Daryl have come to some sort of agreement here as both bring Mark Michaels to his feet! Charlie holds up the dazed Mark Michaels from behind! Look at this! Daryl is teeing off on the defenseless Mark Michaels while Charlie holds Michaels in place! Charlie turns Michaels around and THE QUEEN IS DEAD!! THAT DOUBLE UNDERHOOK DDT JUST PLANTED MARK MICHAELS AGAIN!!
James Peters: Now Daryl Kinkade whips Mark Michaels toward the corner where that exposed turbuckle is that was undone by Marr earlier and Michaels’ back takes the brunt of all that as he comes staggering out of the corner holding his lower back! HEADMASTER RITUAL! THE SPINEBUSTER BY CHARLIE MARR! CHARLIE RISES UP TO HIS KNEES NODDING HIS HEAD SMILING WIDELY WITH APPROVAL! BLOODY RED CRIMSON MASK AND ALL!
Eve: Charlie Marr, you are a sick man and you need help! But, I have to admit. It’s amazing. Both of these men are actually doing it! They’re working in perfect sync just as they did when they were the Unified Tag Team Champions for over five months! Look at this! Both are now working to eliminate Mark Michaels as they look to dump him over the top rope, but Michaels is fighting it! He’s trying to power his way back through the ropes! Michaels gets a nice shot in on Charlie Marr who stumbles backward some! Mark now gouges the eyes of Kinkade! CHOP BLOCK FROM BEHIND BY MICHAELS, TAKING KINKADE OFF HIS FEET! MICHAELS FALL BACK TO THE CANVAS INSIDE THE RING, BUT HE’S NEAR THAT CHAIR! HE’S GOT IT! HE CHARGES RIGHT AT MARR AND JABS IT RIGHT INTO THE GUT OF CHARLIE MARR AND FORCING HIM BACKWARD STRAIGHT INTO THAT EXPOSED CORNER TURNBUCKLE!! AND ANOTHER JAB TO THE GUT OF CHARLIE MARR BY MARK MICHAELS!!
Stew-O: YES!! STAY ON’EM MARK!! Mark turning his attention to Daryl Kinkade who’s on all fours! Mark Michaels raises up that chair! AND DOWN HE BRINGS THAT STEEL CHAIR ONTO THE BACK OF DARYL KINKADE!! DECIMATE MARRKADE MARK!! DO IT FOR NOBODY BUT YOURSELF!! VOLTAGE ABOUT TO LOSE TWO OF IT’S GREATEST RISING STARS ON FREE PER VIEW BABY!! HE DOES IT AGAIN! AND ANOTHER CHAIR SHOT! AND ANOTHER! AND ANOTHER! ANOTHER! YEAH!
James Peters: NO!!! Why does Mark Michaels gotta be so repressed and all in his feelings for? Was life that hard man? If you asked me, I’d say he’ll be good to play in the next installment ‘My Bloody Valentine’.
(The tron comes to life as does the countdown to the next competitor about to enter the match.)
(‘I Wanna Be Your Sin’ by Children of October as Donavon Cross makes his way out to a mixed reaction as he comes stammering toward the ring talking but it’s all inaudible.)
Eve: And here comes a true enigma to say the least. He doesn’t want titles. He loves tatoos, and I’m sure he has a thing for the macabre too. But coming out as the number five entrant into this contest is Donavon Cross, and he slides in to the ring where Charlie Marr tries putting the boots to the back of Donavon right away, but to no avail! Charlie’s energy has been zapped! He’s gassed right now so it’s not having the type of effect on Donavon who’s at full strength!
Stew-O: Right. Now Donavon Cross taking control of the situation with Charlie Marr as he now topples him with repeated elbows raining down by Donavon! Charlie trying to cover up!
James Peters: Over to our right in the corner Mark Michaels is pressing the end of that steel chair at the throat of a helpless Daryl Kinkade who’s trying to breath, but he’s having a hard time powering out of this predicament! You gotta wonder if the length of time along with the stamina of Kinkade and Marr will make it only a matter of time before each succumbs to elimination!
Eve: Well, given that you have two guys who are exactly the opposite at this point, of course Kinkade and Marr are running into trouble! They damn near had a match on their own before the bell even rang! That’s their fault for acting out like the kids that they are! Donavon whips Charlie Marr to the ropes! Oh, Cross ducked too early as Charlie Marr catches him with a big boot to the face! Donavon slowly rising back to his feet holding his face in a bit of pain! Now A HEADBUTT from Charlie Marr knocks Cross down the canvas! Charlie grabs up Donavon Cross and front slams him back down! Leg drop to the throat of Donavon Cross! AND NOW THAT CHAIR TO THE BACK OF CHARLIE MARR! MARK MICHAELS NAILS CHARLIE STRAIGHT ACROSS THE TEMPLE WITH THE CHAIR! BUT CHARLIE IS STILL STANDING! MICHAELS DROPS THE CHAIR AND THEN PULLS MARR IN AND HOOKS HIM AROUND THE NECK AND PULLS HIM INTO POSITION!
James Peters: AND A SNAP DDT BY MARK MICHAELS TO CHARLIE MARR ON THE CHAIR! Donavon grabs up Charlie Marr off the canvas! Now Kinkade is recovering in that corner that Michaels had him struggling for his life in! Donavon Cross now charging at Kinkade and devastating clothesline by Cross sends Daryl over the top rope! But Daryl’s momentum takes Donavon Cross over too! Both are teetering on the brink of elimination here! Both are now desperately slugging it out on the apron! If either one of them touches the floor before re-entering the ring we’ll have our second elimination of the match!
Stew-O: Get him Donavon! Represent! Dynasty got kings too, we GOAT! Donavon just walloped Kinkade real good with that shot! Kinkade falls back and is barely hanging on by the top rope! Donavon inching closer looking to eliminate Kinkade!
Eve: Michaels has Charlie Marr up now looking to dump him over the top rope, but gouge to the eyes by Marr! Michaels rakes the face of Marr! Now Michaels whips Marr to the ropes but Charlie reverses the momentum and sends Michaels instead!
Stew-O: Come on Donovan! He moves in closer on Kinkade! NOOOOOO!!! DAMMIT! MARK MICHAELS I GUESS GETS CREDIT FOR THAT ELIMINATION! BUT DAMMIT IT ALL TO HELL HE JUST ELIMINATED HIS OWN GUY FROM DYNASTY!
Eve: There’s no allies in this, Stew. It’s every man for himself.
Stew-O: Poor Mark Michaels! This shit is rigged for Marrkade to win! The rig is in, Mark, just like you said!
Bella Braxton: Donavon Cross has been eliminated!….
(Donavon Cross sits up and glares upward into the ring at the three remaining competitors before the referees nearby order Cross to the back.)
James Peters: Now Daryl Kinkade is back in the ring, and both him and Charlie Marr rain down fists on Mark Michaels who tries to fight back, but he’s not having much luck! Charlie Marr now grabs up Michaels and has him in a compromising position, he’s now hoisting him up looking for a powerbomb it would seem! Kinkade hops up on the top rope! OH! I KNOW WHAT THIS IS! IT’S MARRKADE’S OLD COMBINATION FINISH!! POWERBOMB BY MARR! TOP ROPE DIVING METEORA BY KINKADE!! THEY USE TO CALL THAT THE FALLEN ANGEL!!
Eve: These fans are actually cheering a bit, this is unreal! Charlie and Daryl stare each other down! Charlie drops down and rolls out of the ring under the bottom rope as Kinkade now puts the boots to Mark Michaels! Charlie Marr grabs Michaels and pulls him under the bottom rope slightly and then brings down a running elbow to the head of Mark Michaels!
(The tron comes to life and the crowd begins counting down with the countdown clock.)
(‘Crazy Train’ by Ozzy Osbourne as the crowd volume level raises a bit as Korey Gaines bursts through the entrance curtains looking alive like the vibrant youth that he’s been noted as already playing to the crowd that revel his high flying, high wire act, gesturing with his arms for the crowd noise to get louder by throwing them up and yelling out at them.)
James Peters: And here comes our sixth entrant to this match! It’s Korey Gains! He’s a daredevil! He’s synonymous with the word underdog, but he’s got a huge heart and will be a tough out!
Stew-O: You can say that again, James! He’s got plenty of heart to make it to the big leagues, and he’s won some pretty nice opportunities, but this may be the biggest one yet. Let’s see how he fairs. Mark Michaels back on his feet after escaping the wrath of Marrkade!
(Korey Gaines then starts darting toward the ring to enter it fully ready to go.)
Eve: And Korey Gaines climbs up on the ring apron, and here comes Mark Michaels swinging a right at Korey Gaines that connects trying to knock him for a loop, but remember a competitor has to actually enter the ring through ropes and be tossed over the top rope to be officially eliminated from the match! Mark Michaels with another haymaker to the head of Korey Gaines who’s barely hanging on with one arm! Mark Michaels aga-NO! Korey Gaines slides in under the bottom rope right between the legs of Mark Michaels! Michaels turns around! AND SPINNING ROUNDHOUSE KICK TO THE TEMPLE OF MARK! OH NO! MARK IS TEETERING ON THE BRINK OF ELIMINATION AS HE FALLS INTO THE ROPES! KOREY GAINES COMES AT MARK AGAIN ON THE ATTACK! MICHAELS CAUGHT HIM! JAWBREAKER BY MARK MICHAELS! AND BOTH MEN ARE DOWN!
James Peters: Each of these competitors in this match, and that are eventually going to be entering this match…which, what do we got? Twenty four more to go? They are all in the best position of making their dreams become a reality, they have the best chance of walking away and main eventing at Pain For Pride!
Stew-O: Daryl Kinkade being smart now as he is staying in the corner conserving his energy! Charlie Marr goes and picks up Korey Gaines! He begins pummeling him with repeated fists that stagger the young man! Marr goes for the clothesline that’s ducked by everyone’s favorite underdog! Hurricanrana! NO! IT’S BEING BLOCKED BY CHARLIE! CHARLIE RUNS WITH KOREY ACROSS THE RING TOWARD THAT EXPOSED TURNBUCKLE AND RELEASES KOREY HIM FROM HIS OWN GRASP AND TOSSES HIM RIGHT INTO THAT EXPOSED CORNER FROM EARLIER!
Eve: Marr whips Korey Gaines to the ropes! SPRINGBOARD FOREARM BY GAINES TO THAT STAGGERS CHARLIE MARR! GAINES HERE COMES AGAIN! BIG BOOT BY MARR JUST FLATTENED KOREY GAINES! KOREY LOOKS LIKE HE’S OUT OF IT! CHARLIE PICKS KOREY BACK UP! CHARING CROSS! THAT DISCUS LARIAT! CHARLIE MARR GETTING READY TO ELIMINATE KOREY GAINES! OH WAIT A MINUTE! DARYL KINKADE JUST DUMPED CHARLIE MARR OVER THE TOP ROPE! BUT CHARLIE HANGS ON AND SLIPS BACK THROUGH THE ROPES! NO! DARYL IS REALLY TRYING TO ELIMINATE HIM HERE BY TRYING TO KEEP CHARLIE ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE ROPES! EVERY MAN FOR HIMSELF!
James Peters: Indeed, but these two were really working well together, but I guess the alliance is over! It’s about winning the match and securing a spot in the main event of Pain For Pride! NOW HERE COMES MARK MICHAELS FROM BEHIND WITH A CLUBBING BLOW TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD OF DARYL KINKADE! NOW MICHAELS TRYING TO DUMP DARYL OVER THE TOP ROPE! CHARLIE MARR SLIPS BACK IN THROUGH THE MIDDLE AND TOP ROPES!
Stew-O: Come on MARK! KILL MARRKADE! Currently right now, four men are trying to ensure they continue to survive in this match, and it’s Marr and Kinkade who are clocking in at this point at over twenty minutes in this match. Korey Gaines with an enzigir to Charlie Marr taking Marr by surprise as he was getting back to this feet! ROUNDHOUSE KICK TO MARR AS HE WAS GETTING BACK TO HIS FEET AGAIN! THIS TIME SENDING HIM INTO THE ROPES! SUPERKICK BY GAINES! BUT IT’S CAUGHT! CHARLIE CAUGHT THE LEG OF KOREY GAINES!! NOW MARR HAS GAINES! CHARLIE WITH A GERMAN SUPLEX!! GERMAN SUPLEX OF KOREY GAINES RIGHT OVER THE TOP ROPE AND KOREY HITS THE FLOOR HARD! OH MY GOD! SHEESH! HOW’S HIS HEAD! OFFICIALS ARE ALREADY SURROUNDING KOREY TO GIVE HIM MEDICAL ATTENTION IF NEEDED! AND WOULD CERTAINLY SEEM THAT HE DOES!
Bella Braxton: Korey Gaines has been eliminated!…
Eve: Here’s our medical staff now! Korey Gaines is definitely down! Hopefully he’s alright.
(Replays show Korey Gaines German Suplexed straight over the top rope where he lands awkwardly on tailbone. Then real time shows the medical staff helping Korey up and beginning to help him to the back.)
James Peters: One of the brightest young stars in the company of our Voltage brand, Korey Gaines sure took quite a tumble at the hands of Charlie Marr, who just registered his second elimination of this match! Michaels has the advantage again on Daryl Kinkade with high knees to the midsection in the corner of Daryl. Now Charlie Marr again looking for a German suplex, but Michaels with back elbow to that sends Charlie Marr staggering back a bit! Here comes Daryl charging at Michaels, but Michaels counters with a kneeling facebreaker! Forward Russian Leg sweep to Kinkade! Now Mark Michaels is in complete control! Now he’s going after Charlie Marr again, and now he’s choking Marr on the ropes as Kinkade is trying to pull himself up once again using the ropes on the other side!
(The tron comes to life for the count down and fans get back to their feet counting down with the clock.)
(‘Type-03’ by Mick Gordon begins to play throughout the arena which starts fluttering with the boo birds as Denis Ryley wastes no time making his appearance on the stage where he begins talking trash. He has a water bottle in his left hand. He down a bit of the contents before shooting some of it from his mouth before tossing the bottle down then makes his way down the rest of the ramp toward the ring.)
Eve: Well, here’s another one of your Voltage wannabe kings, I guess, with our seventh entrant into the match. With another gone, Denis Ryley finds himself in the match! He wastes absolutely no time either as he enters the ring and immediately goes after Daryl Kinkade! Denis is taking advantage of the resting Daryl Kinkade in the corner! Denis targets him with fire and all behind those high kicks to the head of Daryl, showing more fire than everyone right now! Denis then turns his attention to Mark Michaels who Denis starts attacking him from the side with stiff kicks to the ribs! Mark Michaels just took a nice jab to the throat from Denis Ryley! NOW A VICIOUS RIGHT TO THE HEAD AND MICHAELS GOES DOWN! CHARLIE MARR NOW COMING IN FOR A CLOTHESLINE ATTEMPT BUT IT’S DUCKED BY DENIS RYLEY! SUPERKICK BY DENIS RYLEY TO CHARLIE MARR AND MARR GOES DOWN!
Stew-O: Mark Michaels comes at Denis Ryley but Denis Ryley spears Michaels into the corner! European uppercut by Ryley, and now anther! And another! Charlie tries to shove Denis off but to no avail, this kid is a whole house of fire! Enziguri sends Marr into the ropes! FALLAWAY SLAM BY DARYL FROM BEHIND! NO! RYLEY ROLL OFF THE SHOULDERS OF KINKADE! SUPERKICK! DARYL DUCKS AND MARK MICHAELS JUST TOOK ALL OF THAT SUPERKICK TO THE FACE! RYLEY WHIPS DARYL INTO THE CORNER WHERE HE CRASHES INTO HIS FORMER PARTNER CHARLIE MARR!
James Peters: The rookie Ryley is doing it! He’s looking impressive, but I don’t think many expected this! DROPKICK FROM A RUNNING POSITION TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD OF KINKADE WHO’S HEAD COLLIDES WITH MARR’S IN THE CORNER! AND THERE’S MICHAELS FROM BEHIND! MICHAELS HOOKS THE ARMS OF DENIS RYLEY FROM BEHIND! HE APPEARS TO BE TRYING TO TIGER SUPLEX HIM…BUT MICHAELS TRYING TO REPEAT WHAT CHARLIE MARR DID EARLIER WITH KOREY GAINES! THAT’S DANGEROUS, BUT NOBODY EVER SAID MARK MICHAELS WAS A NICE GUY! BUT DENIS IS FIGHTING THIS! DENIS WITH A REVERSE HEADBUTT TO MICHAELS! MICHAELS RELEASE DENIS NOW!
Eve: Denis hooks Mark Michaels from behind! GERMAN SUPLEX BY DENIS RYLEY TO MARK MICHAELS! MICHAELS BACK UP AS MARR SHOVES KINKADE DOWN TO THE CANVAS AND HAS A GO AT DENIS AGAIN! BUT DENIS FENDING OFF BOTH MICHAELS AND CHARLIE MARR! WHAT COURAGE! WHAT GUTS BY THIS YOUNG MAN RIGHT NOW AS HE GETS BACK TO HIS FEET! KINKADE BACK TO HIS FEET ONLY BE BODYSLAMMED BACK DOWN! EVERYONE EXCEPT DENIS IS DOWN!
Stew-O: DENIS RUNS UP TO THE SECOND TURNBUCKLE AND THEN FINALLY TO THE TOP! MOONSAULT OFF THE TOP! UH….MARR CAUGHT DENIS IN MIDAIR! MARR WASTING NO TIME EITHER AS HE HOISTS DENIS RYLEY UP HIGH IN PRESS AND THEN WALKS NEAR THE NEARBY ROPES AND HURLS RYLEY OVER THE TOP ROPE TO WHERE DENIS CRASHES TO THE FLOOR!
Bella Braxton: Denis Ryley has been eliminated!…
James Peters: That’s now three eliminations for Charlie Marr in a matter of about eight minutes! And now it’s down to three again! Mark Michaels, Daryl Kinkade, and Charlie Marr! Marr and Kinkade have been in from the start of this match, where even before that they had a pre-match brawl and then Mark Michaels who came out at number four in this match!
Eve: Now Michaels back at it as he stomps at the downed Daryl Kinkade! Now Charlie Marr joining in on the beatdown with Michaels for a moment. Both grab up Kinkade and whip him to the ropes and then perform a double flapjack to Kinkade who lands hard to the canvas! Now Charlie mounts Kinkade and begins slugging away at his face over and over!
Stew-O: Now both Marr and Michaels teaming up again as they both bring Daryl over to the ropes, looking to eliminate him from this match but Daryl is fighting this! He’s desperately holding on to the ropes for dear life!
(The tron countdown starts up again with the crowd now looking toward the entrance once again as they count down to the next entrant.)
(‘Revolution’ by The Beatles starts up right after the normal interlude, but nonetheless the crowd is up and boisterous as Jack Haze makes his way out, all smiles. Then Jack uncharacteristically due to the make up of the match slaps only a few hands as he immediately puts on his determined expression as he makes his way to the ring now showing a sense of purpose.)
Eve: JACK HAZE COMING AT NUMBER EIGHT AND HE’S ON THE APRON! HERE COMES MARK MICHAELS! SLINGSHOT SPEAR! HAZE JUST FLOORED MARK MICHAELS WITH THAT SPEAR! JACK HAZE ENTERS THE RING! NOW HE’S GOT CHARLIE MARR’S ATTENTION AND THIS CROWD IS LOUD FOR HAZE! SPINEBUSTER BY JACK HAZE! THINGS DEFINITELY PICKING UP NOW!
Stew-O: JACK HAZE STILL ON FIRE AS HE CORNERS KINKADE AGAIN AND NOW SENDS A KNEE TO THE RIBS! AND ANOTHER KNEE TO THE RIB CAGE AREA! SPINNING BACK FIST TO DARYL KINKADE! AND ANOTHER SPINNING BACKFIST! HAZE IS ON FIRE! HE’S GOING ABSOLUTELY CRAZY ON KINKADE! HAZE HAS KINKADE UP NOW! TURNBUCKLE SHINBREAKER BY JACK HAZE! AND NOW HAZE YELLING OUT AT THE CROWD FULL OF INTENSITY AS THE CROWD EATS IT UP AND THIS BRINGS A SMILE TO THE FACE OF HAZE AS HE LEANS ON THE ROPES WHILE THE MESS OF BODIES ARE LEFT TRYING TO RECOVER!
James Peters: Haze has Mark Michaels up and now whips him to the ropes! A running springboard crossbody to Michaels! Now Charlie Marr is grabbed up and whipped to the ropes but Charlie reverses the momentum and sends Haze to the ropes! Another springboard crossbody by Haze taking Charlie Marr down to the canvas! HAZE RUNS AT THE CORNER NOW WHERE DARYL IS STILL RESTING! HAZE GOING FOR A CORNER SPLASH! NO! DARYL MOVES OUT OF THE WAY! BEAUTIFUL LIE!!! CROSS LEGGED FISHERMAN BUSTER! DARYL CAUGHT HAZE AND DROPPED HAZE!! HAZE TRYING TO GET BACK TO HIS FEET BUT HE’S STUMBLING BIG TIME AS HE DOES! CHARING CROSS! THE DISCUS LARIAT DELIVERED BY CHARLIE MARR! BUT MARR IS NOT DONE!!?? HE HURRIES AND GRABS HAZE UP AND THROWS UP OVER THE TOP ROPE AND TO THE FLOOR!!
Bella Braxton: Jack Haze has been eliminated!….
Stew-O: Welp. That was quick.
Eve: This crowd certainly not happy and Charlie Marr is, and in Charlie Marr’s world not seeing people happy makes him extra happy!
James Peters: Well, that’s now three straight eliminations for Charlie Marr. And once again we’re back at three! But each man kind of gassed at the moment off in separate corners seemingly content to let the other be for now, except Mark Michaels. He said he was intent on hurting people if need be, he’s now sliding out of the ring once again and kneeling down looking underneath that ring apron for something to get his hands on!
Stew-O: That’s because Mark is on a mission, a REAL MISSION!
(The tron countdown appears once again as the crowd catches on in anticipation as they countdown with the clock until the buzzer.)
(‘Ultimate Battle’ by ZENTA and the Melbourne crowd absolutely explodes and loses their shit at the arrival for one of their own. Jamie O’Hara arrives from beyond the curtains and the crowd’s volume only seems to intensify as Jamie takes a moment to look around and soaks in the moment, and then raises his right arm with determination urging the crowd to get louder. The men in the ring all look up completely focused now)
Eve: LISTEN TO THIS OVATION GRAND RAMPAGE ENTRANT NUMBER NINE!
James Peters: WHAT!!??? I CAN’T HEAR ANYTHING ELSE AT THE MOMENT EXCEPT THESE RABID AUSTRALIANS WHO ARE BURSTING MY EARDRUMS!
Crowd: JAMIE!!! JAMIE!!! JAMIE!!! JAMIE!!! JAMIE!!! JAMIE!!! JAMIE!!! JAMIE!!! JAMIE!!! JAMIE!!! JAMIE!!! JAMIE!!! JAMIE!!!
(Jamie begins making his way down the ramp toward the ring as he removes his jacket ready to go, sliding into the ring.)
Stew-O: YES!!! JAMIE O’HARA IS IN THE BUILDING AND HE DOESN’T WASTE ANY TIME WHATSOEVER! HERE COMES CHARLIE MARR! O’HARA BACKDROPS CHARLIE MARR AND HE HITS THE CANVAS HARD! NOW HERE COMES DARYL KINKADE TRYING HIS HAND AT JAMIE O’HARA! CLOTHESLINE BY KINKADE MISSES IT’S MARK AS O’HARA DUCKS TO AVOID THE CONTACT! SPINNING WHEEL KICK BY KINKADE! SLINGBLADE BY JAMIE THAT DROPS DARYL KINKADE IN HEAP! THIS CROWD LOVES IT! NOW MARK MICHAELS SLIDES IN THE RING WITH A LEAD PIPE IN HAND!

Crowd: JAMIE!!! JAMIE!!! JAMIE!!! JAMIE!!! JAMIE!!! JAMIE!!! JAMIE!!! JAMIE!!! JAMIE!!! JAMIE!!! JAMIE!!! JAMIE!!! JAMIE!!!
Mark: If I’m gonna destroy Dynasty, might as well start with their ace.
Jamie: Sorry, mate. Were ya sayin somethin? I’ve got something like a hundred thousand sayin my name, I couldn’t quite hear out this ear! (Walks in closer) Can ya say it again?
Mark: I’m gonna break you, and then them and anyone who enters this ring!
Jamie: Funny, I see ya mouth movin, but I can’t hear anything worth so much as a penny comin out! Are ya a real man, or are just another cunt about to get their head caved in with my boot?
Eve: Both men jawing at each other, this crowd is so loud it’s hard to make anything out! HERE COMES MICHAELS RAISING UP THAT LEAD PIPE TO STRIKE JAMIE AND JAMIE READY TO REACT! BUT CHARLIE MARR FROM BEHIND! EVER THE OPPORTUNIST MARR DOWNS O’HARA AS MARK MICHAELS LOOKS! MICHAELS TURNS AROUND HOWEVER AND MEETS A RUNNING FLYING DROPKICK THE FACE AND MICHAELS DROPS THE LEAD PIPE! NOW DARYL AND CHARLIE LOOK AT EACH OTHER ONCE AGAIN! IT LOOKS LIKE THEY’VE DECIDED THAT GETTING RID OF PERHAPS THE BIGGEST THREAT IN THE MATCH IS MORE IMPORTANT AT THE MOMENT THEN CONTINUING TO TRY AND ONE UP THE OTHER! NOW BOTH MEN ARE STOMPING THE SHIT OUT OF JAMIE O’HARA AS THIS CAPACITY CROWD CONTINUES TO SHOUT JAMIE’S NAME!
Stew-O: Both Daryl and Charlie grab up Jamie and then send him off to the ropes! Jamie bounces off the ropes! Double clothesline attempt misses by the duo formerly known as Marrkade! DOUBLE FLYING CLOTHESLINE BY O’HARA TAKING DOWN BOTH DARYL KINKADE AND CHARLIE MARR! O’HARA REBOUNDS OFF THE ROPES! PENALTY KICK TO CHARLIE MARR!

SINGLE UNDERHOOK BRAINBUSTER! AND ALL THREE MEN ARE DOWN AND ONE IS LEFT STANDING AND THIS CROWD IS ON THEIR FEET CHEERING THEIR HOMEGROWN FAVORITE! JAMIE O’HARA!
(The tron countdown clock comes back to life as the crowd looks on as does Jamie O’Hara calmly as he readies himself for whoever is next.)
( ‘New God Flow’ – Pusha T ft. Kanye West starts to play and the crowd once again gets loud, but this entrance happens to be somewhat of a shock to many, and O’Hara unfazed but knows the familiar tune as he begins pacing the ring awaiting.)
Stew-O: SAY IT AIN’T SO!! ARE YOU KIDDING ME RIGHT NOW!!??
James Peters: OH MY GOD!! THE NUMBER TEN ENTRANT IS…????
(Xavier Williams is shown smirking and letting a slight chuckle leaves him as he brings one arm outstretched with his index finger pointing outward as he acknowledges everyone with this gesture as he’s showered with respect before confidently making his way toward the ring.)
Eve: It’s 2016 HALL OF FAME INDUCTED, XAVIER WILLIAMS! WE’VE KNOWN XAVIER AS A MENTOR TO SOME OF THE FUTURE UP AND COMERS, NOT TO MENTION A FORMER MENTOR TO FORMER WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION REX MCALLISTER, AND CERTAINLY SOMEONE WHO HAS BEEN AWAY FROM AN EAW RING FOR QUITE SOME TIME! MAN THESE PEOPLE ARE LOUD! THESE PEOPLE HAVE LOST THEIR MINDS OVER THE ANTICIPATION OF THESE TWO MEN STEPPING INTO A WRESTLING RING AGAIN! I CAN HARDLY THINK!
Stew-O: YOU’RE NOT ALONE, EVE! THESE FANS HAVE ANTICIPATED THIS FOREVER SINCE THEIR LAST CLASH! NOW XAVIER ASCENDS THE RING STEPS AND MAKES HIS WAY TO THE APRON!
James Peters: Both men stare each other down for a moment sharing similar expression with extreme confidence oozing off them, and what a moment this is! Two men who last met at Pain For Pride ten for the World Heavyweight Championship, where O’Hara effectively had ended the run of Xavier Williams at the top of this company!
Stew-O: Xavier steps in to the ring and immediately walks up to the record breaking World Heavyweight Champion! Both of them jawing at each other! AND HERE THEY GO! BOTH MEN TRADING LEFTS AND RIGHTS! NEITHER MAN GIVING IN TO THE OTHER AT THE MOMENT, UNTIL FINALLY XAVIER WILLIAMS ASSUMES THE CONTROL WITH A FEW FOREARMS TO SHIVER O’HARA BACKWARDS! END OF THE WORLD! THAT DEVASTATING SPINNING HEEL KICK JUST KNOCKED O’HARA FOR A LOOP!
Eve: Now Xavier grabs up Jamie and puts him back down with a backbreaker! Mark Michaels and Charlie Marr are now trading blows with each other! Marr goes down! KINDKADE THOUGH SPINS MICHAELS AROUND! BUT WHATEVER DARYL WAS LOOKING TO ATTEMPT WAS JUST BLOCKED BY MICHAELS! REVERSE NECKBREAKER DDT BY MICHAELS TO KINKADE!
James Peters: Michaels grabs up Kinkade by his hair and runs him into that exposed turnbuckle face first! Michaels grabs up the lead pipe he had dropped earlier! NO MARK! DOOONNNNNTTTT!!! MARK MICHAELS JUST CLOCKED THE HELL OUT DARYL KINKADE WITH THAT LEAD PIPE! NOW MICHAELS MOUNTS KINKADE WHO’S BEEN BUSTED OPEN AND HE BEGINS WAILING AWAY AT THE OPEN FLESH WOUND OF DARYL! Michaels now back to his feet, smirking. He’s admiring his handy work as this crowd looks on not very pleased at all!
Stew-O: See, what’d I tell you? Mark Michaels is not playing around! He’s here to ring everyone’s clock in the slaughterhouse district right in the center of the ring! He’s not holding back his frustrations, he’s unleashing them! I love this sadistic side of Michaels!
Eve: Well, in my opinion it leaves a lot to be desired. It doesn’t take a genius to pick up a lead pipe and use it to gain an unfair advantage! Xavier Williams has Jamie O’Hara subdued at the ropes still with a boot to his throat! Jamie has yet to fully recover after one End Of The World, and Xavier has had the advantage pretty much from the outset of entering this match! Now Charlie Marr coming into the fray looking for yet another elimination! Xavier trying to fight him off though. It’s complete chaos as the ring is beginning to fill up a bit.
(The tron countdown clock returns as the fans stand once more as they stare completely focused on the entrance stage.)
(‘Damage’ by Red as Ronan Malosi slowly makes his way out from beyond the curtains, looking mean as he seethes with nothing but anger and rage in his eyes as he marches to the ring with a purpose ignoring the crowd response he’s receiving.)
James Peters: Well, this man doesn’t look like he’s in too good of a mood. Ronan Malosi of Dynasty is the number eleven entrant here, and he’s got quite a task ahead of him given the competition that’s in the ring right now!
Stew-O: Yeah, but I wouldn’t count a guy out that looks this mean and menacing! He looks like he destroy a landmark building by himself!
Eve: Ronan enters the ring now and immediately goes after Charlie Marr who was playing it smart and conserving his energy, but he can’t let up now! He’s gotta find a way to push through the exhaustion! Heavy knee lifts to the midsection by Ronan to Charlie now, and now the whip by Ronan sends Charlie Marr to the ropes! Now Ronan catches Charlie and lifts him up high! Deadlift suplex by Ronan and down goes Charlie Marr onto the canvas! Now A huge leg drop connects on Charlie Marr!
James Peters: Over in the corner Xavier still has a good advantage on O’Hara as he lays into the chest of Jamie with a few knife edged chops! Over on the opposite end Mark Michaels now comes to blows with Ronan! Michaels tries attacking with the lead pipe, but Ronan alertly knocks it from the grasp of Mark Michaels! Michaels dashes at Ronan! Michaels throwing assortment of rights and lefts at the big man, but they don’t seem to faze him much! Ronan shoves Michaels away like he’s a rag doll! But Michaels is back on the attack and Ronan still isn’t fazed by this! Michaels is getting frustrated now! Kick to the gut by Ronan to Mark Michaels who keels over in pain! IRON CLAW CHOKESLAM!!!
Stew-O: Now Ronan grabs up Mark Michaels and picks him up above his head and is looking to eliminate Mark Michaels as walks over closer to the ropes where all he would have to do is drop him over! Michaels has nowhere to go! Michaels struggling! CHARLIE MARR OUT OF NOWHERE JUST CLOCKED THE HELL OUT OF RONAN MALOSI WITH THAT LEAD PIPE THAT’S SOMEHOW STILL IN THE RING! RONAN DROPS MARK AND STUMBLES TOWARD THE ROPES AFTER THAT SHOT BY CHARLIE!
Eve: AND ANTOHER SHOT BY CHARLIE MARR TO THE SKULL OF RONAN STUMBLES NEAR THE ROPES AND CHARLIE MARR RUSHES TOWARD A DAZED RONAN MALOSI! AND A DEVASTATING CLOTHESLINE BY MARR SENDS MALOSI OVER THE TOP ROPE! CHARLIE MARR JUST ELIMINATED THE BIGGEST MAN BY FAR SIZE WISE IN THE MATCH IN RONAN MALOSI! WOW! THAT’S HUGE!
Bella Braxton: Ronan Malosi has been eliminated!…
James Peters: Count it guys! Five eliminatations for Charlie Marr! This man is on fire! And Xavier sets up Jamie on the top turnbuckle! Running dropkick by Xavier sends Jamie falling backwards but not quite off the turnbuckle, but Xavier is unfazed as he climbs up to the second turnbuckle and gets ready to deliver! Yep. It’s coming. A SUPERPLEX OFF THE TOP THAT SENDS JAMIE O’HARA FLYING BECAUSE XAVIER INTENTIONALLY RELEASED JAMIE AS HE EXECUTED THE MOVE!
(The tron countdown clock returns as the next entrant gets everyone buzzing a bit.)
(‘Open Letter’ By the Amity Affliction plays throughout the arena and a supercharged and determined Shane Gates immediately begins sprinting toward the ring.)
Eve: Well, he’s kind of a hardcore maniac, and we’ll see what kind of chaos will ensue with this man in the match! Shane enters at number twelve and he goes right after the bloodied Daryl Kinkade with lethal kicks! But Kinkade didn’t take too kindly to being singled out and he begins fighting back relentlessly at Shane with closed fist shots to the head of Shane and Shane staggers back from the onslaught unleashed by Kinkade! BEAUTIFUL LIE ON SHANE GATES BY DARYL KINKADE!
Stew-O: Now Charlie Marr and Mark Michaels get in on the act! They’re triple teaming Shane Gates like he were like seven feet tall or something! Michaels on the attack! Michaels darts at Shane, and Kinkade does the same, and so does Charlie Marr! Shane doesn’t know what to do, so he does the only thing he could think of and pulls down the top rope and it works! All three men went over the rope!
James Peters: BUT CHARLIE MARR CAUGHT HIMSELF BEFORE HE COULD FALL TO THE FLOOR! HE GRABBED THE TOP ROPE! AS DOES DARYL! MARK MICHAELS SEEMS TO HAVE SLIPPED, BUT CATCHES HIMSELF AT THE LAST SECOND BEFORE HIS FEET COULD TOUCH THE FLOOR! SHANE IS UP, THROWING STRONG FISTS AT EACH MAN AS THEY TRY TO HANG ON! AND EACH MAN IS HANGING ON! IT’S ONE MAN VERSUS THREE, BUT SEEMINGLY EVEN IN THE VULNERABLE STATE THAT THEY ARE THE THREE ARE WINNING THIS EXCHANGE FOR NOW! EACH ARE FIGHTING BACK THROWING SHOTS WITH THEIR FREE HAND AT SHANE GATES WHO’S ODDLY TRYING TO ABSORB ALL THESE BLOWS! SHANE DOES MANAGE TO GET A SHOT IN, AND HE NAILS DARYL WITH THAT SHOT! HOWEVER DARYL RETALIATES WITH A KICK BETWEEN THE ROPES THAT CATCHES SHANE GATES IN THE MIDSECTION CAUSING HIM TO KEEL OVER! DARYL SPRINGS TO LIFE AND LEAPS ON THE TOP ROPE AND LEAPS OFF! MOONSAULT INTO A REVERSE DDT BY KINKADE WHICH TAKES OUT SHANE GATES!
(The tron comes to life with the countdown clock again as the fans begin to countdown to zero.)
(‘Architects’ by Rise Against as ‘The One’ Justiciar Eric walks on out and stops on the stage and with his arms and let’s out a battle cry to which he doesn’t receive much of a positive reception to, but he’s unfazed by the crowd reaction as he makes his way down to the ring picking up considerable speed as he does.)
Eve: Justiciar Eric coming down at number thirteen for this Grand Rampage match, and he seems to be a man on a mission right now as he charges toward the ring!
James Peters: Shane Gates gets back up in a hurry as Justiciar makes his way into the ring! Once in Justiciar goes right for Shane Gates and these two have had some type of back and forth going on right through the last several weeks or so and even this week leading in both had quite a bit to say about each other, and both are now unleashing on each other! Justiciar is pushing Shane Gates to the ropes as they both pound away on each other! Justiciar and Shane fighting recklessly not aware anymore of where they are! Justiciar though seemingly does as he attempts to take out Shane Gates with a clothesline, but Shane dodges it! Now Shane trying to eliminate Justiciar! And-OH CHARLIE MARR! MARR AGAIN! MARR FROM BEHIND! EVER THE OPPORTUNIST JUST DUMPED SHANE GATES AND JUSTICIAR ERIC OVER THE TOP ROPE TO THE FLOOR! AND BOTH MEN LOOK PISSED OFF FOR SURE NOW AS CHARLIE GESTURES WITH HIS HAND WAVING BYE BYE!
Bella Braxton: Both Shane Gates and Justiciar Eric have been eliminated!…
Stew-O: Well that’s now seven eliminations for Charlie Marr! The man has been in all the right places at the right times. Each circumstance has favored him and to his credit he has been able to take advantage! Now Kinkade going to work in the corner on Mark Michaels! Come on, Mark! Don’t give in now!
Eve: Stop being biased! Kinkade with a spinning roundhouse kick in the corner of Mark Michaels! Xavier Williams now batting it out with Charlie Marr once again against the ropes! Marr sends Xavier to the ropes! Shoulder block by Marr sends Williams down to the canvas! Elbow drop by Marr misses it’s mark as Williams rolls out of the way! Leg drop by Williams misses as Marr rolls out of the way! Marr looking for the hiptoss but it’s being blocked by Williams! Williams hiptosses Marr over instead and then begins pounding away at Charlie who’s in the sitting position! KINGS FALL!! ANOTHER KINGS FALL!! MARR WON’T GO DOWN FROM THESE KNEELING SUPERKICKS FROM THE HALL OF FAMER XAVIER WILLIAMS! WHAT WILL IT TAKE!!??? END OF THE WORLD!! THE SPINNING HEEL KICK PUTS MARR DOWN ON THE CANVAS!!
James Peters: Flying forearm by O’Hara that takes Xavier by surprise, and they’re going at it again! Jamie whips Xavier to the ropes but Xavier reverses it! MAFIA KICK AND DOWN GOES XAVIER!! Now Kinkade comes at Jamie! Frankensteiner by Jamie BUT IT’S BEING BLOCKED BY DARYL! DARYL HAS JAMIE NEAR THE ROPES! DARYL KINKADE IS TRYING TO ELIMINATE THE BIGGEST THREAT IN THE MATCH!! WHAT A SHOCKER THIS WOULD BE!! NOW XAVIER WILLIAMS GRABS DARYL FROM BEHIND AND SPINS HIM AROUND!! STO TO DARYL KINKADE! RUNNING CORNER SMASH TO MARK MICHAELS! XAVIER WILLIAMS SHOWING WHY HE IS A FORMER TWO TIME WORLD CHAMPION AND A HALL OF FAMER! CHARLIE MARR FROM BEHIND AGAIN! HE’S TRYING TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF ANOTHER SITUATION HERE! HE’S DOING WHAT KINKADE WAS JUST TRYING TO AGAINST JAMIE O’HARA MOMENTS AGO! NOW DARYL KINKADE TRYING TO GET UP AND QUICKLY MAKES HIS WAY OVER TO LEND AN ASSIST TO CHARLIE IN TRYING TO ELIMINATE XAVIER WILLIAMS! BUT XAVIER AS HE SHOWED THROUGHOUT IN HIS GREAT CAREER IN THIS COMPANY IS PROVING TO BE RESILIENT AS HE HOLDS ON NOT LETTING THE FORMER MARRKADE GET HIM ALL THE WAY OVER!
Stew-O: Uh oh, Charlie just shoved Daryl down to the canvas! He goes back to looking to get the elimination for himself! Daryl looks on with frustration! Finally Daryl gets on his feet and makes his way to the outside of the ring apron and before Charlie can react Daryl hops over the top rope and grabs Charlie and brings down!
(The tron comes to life once again with the countdown as the crowd looks on at the entrance stage in anticipation.)
(“Still Unbroken” by Lynyrd Skynyrd rains throughout the arena as the crowd explodes again as they realize the familiar tune that is playing as Rex McAllister just then makes it out from beyond the curtains nodding his head for a moment as he takes in the reaction he’s receiving from the fans of Australia, looking on with approval.)
James Peters: AND REX MCALLISTER HAS ARRIVED! AND THESE PEOPLE ARE GOING NUTS FOR ONE OF THE FAVORITES IN ALL OF EAW, LET ALONE IN THIS MATCH!! FOR FIVE MONTHS REX MCALLISTER WAS THE STANDARD ON THE GOLD BRAND AND HE DECLARED A FEW WEEKS BACK AND EVEN THIS WEEK THAT HE WAS GOING TO WIN THIS MATCH, AND NOW IT’S DEFINITELY PUT UP OR SHUT UP TIME! BUT ANYONE CAN LIVE UP TO THEIR WORD AND COME THROUGH IN MOMENTS LIKE THESE, IT’S REX!
Eve: Well, we just had him on Showdown last week and this after going through absolute hell and back against Darkane! My question is, he takes no time off to properly heal himself and he has endless supplies of energy, so where the hell does he get!!??
Stew-O: Quit drooling over this man, Eve, before Raven comes out and smacks the shit out of you! Rex is great, but with guys like Jamie O’Hara in this match, guys like Darkane still to come later, it’s really anyone’s ball game! But I’ll admit, these people sure love this man!
(Rex locks his eyes on the ring, full of intensity and then begins sprinting toward the ring. Both Charlie and Daryl quickly rise to their feet after wrestling each other down to the canvas)
James Peters: Charlie Marr and Daryl Kinkade, Rex’s former proteges are both coming right for Rex as Rex slides into the ring! Charlie and Daryl laying boots to Rex, but Rex is fresh so he’s easily fighting off this attack by the former MarrKade members! REX WITH A CLOSED FIST TO CHARLIE SENDING HIM BACKWARDS STUMBLING! FOREARM TO DARYL! NOW ANOTHER CLOSED FIST TO THE ONCOMING CHARLIE MARR! DARYL TRYING TO FIND THE EDGE HE NEEDS ON MCALLISTER BUT REX WAS READY AGAIN! REX WITH AN ARMDRAG TAKEDOWN OF DARYL KINKADE! RUNNING DROPKICK TO CHARLIE MARR THAT SENDS MARR FLYING INTO THE CORNER TURNBUCKLE!
Eve: Daryl back up but Xavier Williams from behind just planted Daryl Kinkade into the canvas with one kick to the gut and a deadlift hanging suplex! Xavier then turns his attention to Rex McAllister! These fans in Australia begin buzzing at the sight of this. We all know here in most circles of EAW that Xavier Williams took that man Rex McAllister under his wing back in early 2016 when the man was at his lowest of lows, plucking right from the bottom and playing an instrumental part in his early development that eventually made him the Elitist that he is today! Both men continue to stand where they are, then Charlie Marr attacks Rex from behind and Daryl Kinkade the same on Xavier Williams with clubbing blows to the back! Charlie Daryl have been in there from the beginning, and their tenacity has sure shown but look how much of a difference time in this match makes! Xavier has only been in it for the last ten minutes or so, and Rex just entered! Both are fighting out their respective predicaments!
Stew-O: You can say that again! Rex with a backhand to his now disowned son Charlie, and Charlie appeared to take that one in nose, but Rex isn’t stopping me as he pummels Charlie with relentless forearms! Xavier Williams has the advantage now on Daryl Kinkade! European uppercuts consecutively by Xavier that sends Daryl reeling back! Both Rex and Xavier whip their respective foes to the ropes opposite of the other! The former Marrkade, they just collided with each other! McAllister rebounds off the ropes! Xavier the same as Daryl falls to his knees! REX EFFECT TO CHARLIE MARR!! END OF THE WORLD BY WILLIAMS ON DARYL KINKADE!!
James Peters: And now, Xavier is eyeing Rex and Rex simply nods his head as takes a fighters stance as he and Xavier get ready to lock up! Collar and elbow tie up??? In the Grand Rampage!!?? Well, not a surprise with these master tacticians! Rex looks for the advantage with a hammerlock on Xavier, but Xavier reverses it into a hammerlock of his own! Rex reverses it but Xavier rolls through this time before taking back control of the situation with an arm lock! Xavier brings Rex down to his knees while putting more pressure on with that armlock, and now steps over looking for a-OH! BACK KICK BY XAVIER JUST KNOCKED REX FOR A LOOP! AND ANOTHER BACK KICK! END OF THE WORLD! THE SPINNING HEEL KICK! IT MISSES! REX DODGED A BULLET THERE AS HE SURPRISES XAVER WHO SPINS AROUND BUT REX GRABS HIM BEFORE HE CAN DO A COMPLETE THREE SIXTY! FALLAWAY SLAM BY REX! NO! XAVIER SLIPS OUT!! ROLLING ELBOW BY XAVIER!! NO!!! REX AVOIDED THE CONTACT! XAVIER WHIPS REX TO THE CORNER! Xavier slow about approaching Rex!
(The tron comes to life and the crowd begins buzzing once more as they countdow.)
(‘Ready For War’ by Adelitas Way plays throughout the arena as the current Interwire Champion, Drake King, confidently strolls out on to the stage with a smirk upon his face welcoming the crowds negative reaction of him.)
Eve: Well, Stew, by hook or by crook he’s still the Interwire Champion, and now he’s the fifteenth entrant into the Grand Rampage match!
Stew-O: What are you talking about, Eve??? You’ve got to be kidding me right now! Drake King, he’s one of Showdown’s best! You may not like his attitude, but he has shown he’s more than capable of backing it up!
James Peters: The current Interwire Champion getting the riot act, but he’s not very much for the cheap pops anymore, he’s into ruling.
Eve: Well it’s certainly not a popularity contest! He doesn’t care. All that matters is that he’s the king of the mountain, and he’s here to prove it in the Grand Rampage!
(Drake King looks around the arena with the Interwire Championship being worn over his shoulder before confidently walking to the h the aisle talking smack to the crowd. At ringside he hands his Interwire Championship off at the announce desk before looking into the ring surveying everything before loosening up one last time and sliding under the bottom rope.)
James Peters: The IW Champ is in and he wants to make an impact boldly, immediately going after Xavier Williams… what a huge elimination this would be! HE TRIES PUSHING XAVIER OVER THE ROPES BUT IS ALMOST IMMEDIATELY MET WITH AN ELBOW!! KING STUMBLES A FEW STEPS BACK INTO THE CENTER OF THE RING… AND NOW XAVIER COMES CHARGING BUT KING SIDESTEPS, GRABBING XAVIER BY THE BACK OF THE HEAD AND THROWING HIM OVER THE ROPES!! BUT XAVIER IS ABLE TO LAND ON THE APRON… NOW PULLING HIMSELF TO HIS FEET!!
Eve: KING GOES TO GRAB HIM, TO TRY AND PUSH HIM OFF AND ELIMINATE HIM… BUT XAVIER SHOOTS HIS LEG UP AND DELIVERS A SUPERKICK RIGHT TO THE JAW!! XAVIER WILLIAMS DELIVERING A SUPERKICK FROM THE APRON AND DRAKE KING IS DAZED AS XAVIER QUICKLY SCURRIES BACK INTO THE RING!!
Stew-O: KING TURNS AROUND, TRYING TO STAY ON HIS FEET…BUT THERE’S REX WITH A FOREARM! !! THAT DROPS KING DOWN TO HIS KNEES… AND NOW XAVIER, RUNNING OFF THE ROPES… A RUNNING KNEE TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD!! DRAKE KING IS DOWN AND OUT!! AND NOW LOOK AT THIS HERE!! THIS IS AWESOME!! A STANDOFF BETWEEN REX MCALLISTER AND XAVIER WILLIAMS!! WHAT A SIGHT THIS IS AND THE CROWD IS RESPONDING TO IT!! MENTOR AND MENTEE!!
James Peters: AND HERE THEY GO!! REX AND XAVIER FIRING SHOTS AT ONE ANOTHER!! REX HAS MANAGED TO GET XAVIER INTO THE CORNER… BUT HERE COME MARR AND KINKADE, LEAPING ONTO THE BACK OF REX AND TACKLING HIM TO THE CANVAS!!
Eve: Guys, I can’t believe what I’m seeing after the way this match started and all the history that these two share… but it almost seems as if Marr and Kinkade have formed an alliance here, even if temporary!
Stew-O: Stranger things have happened in the Grand Rampage before!
(The camera zooms out as we get a full look at the ring. The countdown clock appears on the bottom left hand of the screen as the crowd begins counting down)
(“Welcome Home” by Coheed and Cambria blasts through the PA system as Jax Walker steps through the curtain. He wastes no time, making a B-Line for the ring)
James Peters: Look who it is! The muscle of The Roundtable, Jax Walker! And you know Drake King is happy to see him, a bit of a rough start in this one so far for the Interwire Champion… but now he has some backup!
(The camera focuses in on Drake King coming to. He darts his eyes over towards the entrance ramp, and a big smile comes to his face as he sees Jax Walker enter the ring, King gets to his feet and begins barking orders)
Stew-O: Mark Michaels is the first to meet him… BUT HE’S SENT INTO THE CORNER WITH AN UPPERCUT!!… WALKER NOW COMES CHARGING… AND HE THROWS HIS BODY AT MARK MICHAELS!! MICHAELS IS DOWN ON THE CANVAS… WALKER TURNS AROUND… AND HE’S MET WITH A RIGHT HAND BY CHARLIE MARR!!… KINKADE FIRES ONE OF HIS OWN AND THEY HAVE THE BIG MAN STAGGERED, MARR GOES FOR A SECOND BUT THIS ONE’S BLOCKED!! BLOCKED BY WALKER WHO COMES WITH ANOTHER UPPERCUT, KINKADE GOES DOWN!!
Eve: OH LOOK AT CHARLIE MARR!! LEAPING ONTO THE BACK OF JAX WALKER!!… BUT WALKER BACKPEDALS INTO THE CORNER… SLAMMING MARR UP AGAINST THE TURNBUCKLE!! OH AND NOW LOOK OUT HERE, UH OH GUYS!! MARR IS PERCHED UP ON THAT TOP ROPE… A VERY PRECARIOUS POSITION TO BE IN!!… WALKER LOADS UP… HE LANDS ANOTHER UPPERCUT KNOCKING MARR OFF THE TOP ROPE, AND ONTO THE… NO!! HE’S ABLE TO HOLD ON!!
James Peters: NOW DRAKE KING, TRYING TO GET THE ATTENTION OF WALKER… O’HARA’S BEHIND HIM!!… AND HERE HE COMES!!… BUT WALKER IS ABLE TO AVOID THE ONCOMING ATTACK, O’HARA TURNS AROUND… BUT RIGHT INTO THE IED BY WALKER!! THAT STRAIGHT RUNNING BOOT!! AND NOW DRAKE KING FOAMS AT THE MOUTH, REALIZING HE HAS AN OPPORTUNITY TO ELIMINATE JAMIE O’HARA!! HE GETS O’HARA TO HIS FEET… WALKS HIM OVER TOWARDS THE ROPES, HE TRIES TO TOSS HIM OVER BUT O’HARA ISN’T HAVING IT!! HOLDING ONTO THE ROPES, NOT ALLOWING ANY PART OF HIS BODY TO GO OVER!! HE STARTS FIGHTING BACK, DELIVERING A FEW HARD PUNCHES RIGHT TO THE TEMPLE, GETTING DRAKE KING OFF OF HIM!!… HERE COMES JAX WALKER!!… LOOKING FOR ANOTHER IED… BUT O’HARA DUCKS UNDER IT, JAX WALKER, HIS RIGHT LEG IS CAUGHT UP ON THE TOP ROPE…
Stew-O: AND O’HARA!! HE LIFTS THE OTHER LEG OFF THE CANVAS… AND THERE WALKER GOES, TUMBLING OVER AND HITTING THE OUTSIDE!!
Bella Braxton: Jax Walker has been eliminated!
James Peters: THAT’S THE FIRST ELIMINATION FOR O’HARA IN THIS MATCH, AND IT LOOKS LIKE HE MAY BE GETTING A SECOND HERE AS HE QUICKLY GRABS DRAKE BY THE HAIR AND TOSSES HIM OVER THE ROPES AS WELL!!… BUT DRAKE ABLE TO HOLD ON THE APRON… O’HARA PUSHING HIS BOOT INTO THE FACE OF KING, TRYING TO PUSH HIM OFF THAT APRON BUT KING HAS A FIRM GRIP OF THE ROPES AND O’HARA DECIDES IT’S NOT WORTH IT!!
Eve: You know I was just–
(Eve is interrupted by the countdown clock appearing on the screen)
(“Young and Bitter” by Hot Tag Media begins to play as Lucas Johnson steps out from behind the curtain. He stops midway down the ramp to take off his headphones and that’s when we see the gigantic Feral Khan flanking him)
James Peters: Out next at number 17 we have Lucas Johnson… and he’s not alone as we can see! The enormous Feral Khan, the muscle for Lucas Johnson looks to be accompanying him to the ring!
Stew-O: Of course everyone in this match is hungry to win it but I’m serious when I tell you this, you’ll be hard pressed to find someone who wants it more than this young man right here! Lucas Johsnon enters the ring and lucky for him, there’s a lot of people down… SO HE GOES ON THE ATTACK!! First finding Xavier Williams and sending a few stomps into his chest… Johnson not trying to do anything fancy here, just keep the men down… continue to deliver punishment and weaken them down… I can’t speak from experience but if you ask me that sounds like a good strategy!
Eve: Johnson gets turned around quickly by Mark Michaels… BUT JOHNSON IS ABLE TO BEAT HIM TO THE PUNCH, LITERALLY!! AND A HARD ONE AT THAT AS MICHAELS IS TAKEN OFF HIS FEET!! BUT NOW IT’S KINKADE FROM BEHIND, A CLUBBING BLOW OVER THE BACK THAT BRINGS JOHNSON DOWN TO HIS KNEES… AND NOW MARR WITH A CLOTHESLINE!! I HAVE THE URGE TO CALL THESE TWO MARRKADE… BUT EVERYTHING ABOUT THAT JUST SEEMS STRANGE, SO STRANGE!!
James Peters: These two, in my eyes the future of EAW… putting the past aside as they both have something to prove here tonight! Kinkade gets Johnson back to his feet, the two of them now over in the corner… Kinkade calls to Marr but Marr has already turned his attention to someone else, Rex McAllister! And just think about the history between these two! I think Marr, before this match even started had the goal of eliminating Rex from this match… and he has a prime opportunity to do it right here! Rex is at his feet… Marr lifts him up, a scoop slam like grip… trying to force him over to the ropes… OH BUT LOOK FROM BEHIND!! DARYL KINKADE PULLS REX DOWN, AND NOW HE AND KINKADE BEGIN TO EXCHANGE SOME WORDS!! THIS TEMPORARY ALLIANCE MAY BE BREAKING DOWN RIGHT HERE!!…
Kinkade: WE COULD’VE ELIMINATED JOHNSON!!
EVE: AND SPEAKING OF JOHNSON, HE COMES DARTING TOWARDS BOTH MEN, KNOCKING THEM BOTH DOWN WITH A SHOULDER TACKLE!!
Stew-O: Johnson pops back to his feet… BUT HE’S TAKEN IMMEDIATELY DOWN BY REX AND WAS THAT… A PUNCH TO THE NECK?! JESUS! A DOWNWARD PUNCH DELIVERED RIGHT TO THE NECK OF LUCAS JOHNSON WHO’S DOWN ON THE MAT, WRITHING IN PAIN!! AND NOW REX TURNS HIT ATTENTION TO JAMIE O’HARA… AND BOY ISN’T THIS SOMETHING YOU’D LOVE TO SEE?!
(The countdown clock appears on the screen)
BUT IT DOESN’T LOOK LIKE WE’RE GONNA GET IT JUST YET AS BOTH MARR AND KINKADE ARE BACK TO THEIR FEET, MARR POUNCES ON TOP OF REX AND KINKADE BEGINS TO WORK AWAY ON JAMIE O’HARA!!
(“The Devil in I” by Slipknot hits as Jason McKormick makes his way out from the back. He keeps his eyes locked on the ring as he quickly slides in and gets his hands up, ready for a fight)
James Peters: AH AND HERE’S JASON MCKORMICK!! MCKORMICK ENTERS THE RING FRESH, AND SOMETHING TO KEEP IN MIND GUYS AS WE GET NOW ALMOST TWO THIRDS INTO THIS MATCH, THE MAJORITY OF THIS FIELD HAS BEEN IN FOR A GOOD AMOUNT OF TIME, THEY HAVE TO BE TIRED, THEY HAVE TO BE WEARING DOWN… AND THAT MAKES THE JOB A LOT EASIER FOR THESE FRESHER GUYS!!
Eve: Mark Michaels, as you mentioned Peters, entering the match at number 4 and he’s there to meet McKormick! They both trade shots, and as expected McKormick is able to get the upperhand, forcing Michaels down to a knee! But Michaels fights back, he can’t just give up and continue to take this abuse, that only makes his situation worse! Michaels with a few shots right to the mid-section… it gets McKormick to back off… BUT MCKORMICK COMES BACK WITH A KNEE RIGHT TO THE TEMPLE… AND MICHAELS MIGHT BE OUT!! BUT BEFORE MCKORMICK COULD MAKE HIS NEXT MOVE, HE GETS HIT FROM BEHIND BY LUCAS JOHNSON!!
Stew-O: And that’s another thing that makes Grand Rampage matches so difficult and frustrating! Jason McKormick had a golden opportunity to eliminate Mark Michaels there, but Johnson ruined that. And how is Johnson supposed to know what McKormick is thinking, or what we see? All he sees is an opponent that he needs to take care of! A still fresh Lucas Johnson surveys the scene, a lot of broken and battered bodies in this one… the marathon continues!
James Peters: The Interwire Champion Drake King is slowly making it back to his feet… HE SPINS LUCAS JOHNSON AROUND… BUT JOHNSON DELIVERS FEEL THE PAIN!! FEEL THE PAIN DELIVERED TO DRAKE KING, PLANTED INTO THE CANVAS!! And you see King roll under the bottom rope and onto the floor, remember that’s not an elimination folks!
Eve: If anything it’s a great strategy, Drake King has been dealt a lot in this match so far… roll out of the ring, take a rest and get that second wind as we head into the home stretch!
Stew-O: Lucas Johnson seems a bit upset at Drake for rolling out, but he quickly lets it go and turns his attention back to Jason McKormick! Johnson applies a headlock, hey a bit of chain wrestling in the Grand Rampage… you don’t often see this! Johnson walking him over towards the ropes, AND MCKORMICK KNOWS WHAT JOHNSON IS TRYING TO DO SO HE FIGHTS OUT OF IT, SENDING A FEW SHOTS INTO THE MID-SECTION… CREATING SOME DISTANCE BETWEEN THE TWO… AND NOW MCKORMICK GRABS JOHNSON BY THE ARM AND WHIPS HIM INTO THE ROPES, JOHNSON COMES REBOUNDING… AND RIGHT INTO A BACK BODY DROP!! OH AND DID YOU SEE THE AIR THAT HE GOT?!
James Peters: Jason McKormick is an impressive dude, if he can put it all together we may really have something special here in EAW…
(McKormick lifts Johnson to his feet and again begins to work him over as the countdown clock appears on the screen)
(“Hair of the Dog” by Nazareth hits as the fan favorite Farrell V approaches the stage. He does his signature “FA-RELL-V” taunt along with the crowd before sprinting down the rest of the ramp and into the ring)
Eve: AND HERE COMES FARRELL V!! SO MUCH ENERGY IN THIS MAN, THE ACTION IS ABOUT TO PICK UP FOR SURE!! HE HOPS INTO THE RING, XAVIER WILLIAMS IS THERE TO MEET HIM BUT FARRELL WITH A SPINNING KICK TO THE MID-SECTION, XAVIER BENDS FORWARD… CLUTCHING HIS RIBS… AND LOOK AT THIS!! FARRELL LEAPS OVER HIM, GRABBING MARK MICHAELS BY THE HEAD AND PLANTING HIM INTO THE CANVAS WITH A DDT!! NOW IT’S KINKADE AND MARR!! BOTH TAKE A SWING AT FARRELL, BUT BOTH MISS!! FARRELL WITH A SPINNING BACKFIST TO KINKADE, AND NOW SPINNING IN THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION AND DELIVERING ONE TO MARR!! FARRELL V HAS BREATHED NEW LIFE INTO THIS MATCH!!
James Peters: Farrell now comes head to head with Jamie O’Hara… O’HARA TAKES A SWING AT FARRELL BUT IT’S DUCKED… FARRELL NOW RUNNING… HE JUMPS AND SPRINGBOARDS OFF THE SECOND ROPE, LOOKING FOR A CROSSBODY… THAT CONNECTS!! OH WAIT NO, JAMIE O’HARA ROLLS THROUGH… AND THE STRENGTH OF O’HARA TO GET BACK TO HIS FEET, STILL HOLDING ONTO FARRELL!! AND WE KNOW WHAT HE’S TRYING TO DO HERE, BRINGING HIM OVER TOWARDS THE EDGE OF THE RING… BUT FARRELL STILL TOO FRESH, TOO MUCH ENERGY AND IS ABLE TO ESCAPE THE GRASP OF O’HARA!!
Stew-O: Farrell however is not out of the woods yet! O’Hara is still on the prowl… he lunges forward to grab Farrell… BUT FARRELL RETALIATES WITH A KICK TO THE SHIN, AND NOW A SECOND KICK, THIS ONE TO THE SIDE OF THE KNEE… AND ANOTHER!! ANOTHER!! FARRELL V IS KICKING JAMIE O’HARA AROUND THE ENTIRE RING HERE!! FARRELL WITH A FINAL KICK THAT TAKES O’HARA OFF HIS FEET… O’HARA NOT TRYING TO STAY DOWN FOR LONG THOUGH, HE SCRAMBLES BACK TO HIS FEET… ONLY TO BE MET WITH A ROUNDHOUSE KICK RIGHT TO THE HEAD!! BACK DOWN O’HARA GOES, LIKE A SACK OF POTATOES!!
Eve: AND NOW IT’S REX MCALLISTER SQUARING OFF WITH FARRELL V!! REX SWINGS WITH A RIGHT HAND AND IT CONNECTS!!… HE SWINGS FOR A SECOND BUT FARRELL HAD THIS ONE SCOUTED… HE STEPS ASIDE, GRABS THE ARM OF MCALLISTER… PULLS HIM IN AND DELIVERS A KNEE RIGHT TO THE FACE!! MCALLISTER IS DAZED, BUT FARRELL STILL HAS A HOLD OF THE ARM!! HE WHIPS HIM INTO THE CORNER AND NOW COMES CHARGING, HE LEAPS UP ONTO REX!!… NOW FALLING BACKWARDS AND DELIVERING A MONKEY FLIP!! WOW!! MCALLISTER GOES FLYING A GOOD FIFTEEN FEET ACROSS THE RING, COMING DOWN AND LANDING ON TOP OF XAVIER WILLIAMS!!
James Peters: Guys, think about what Farrell has just done! He’s taken out Daryl Kinkade, Charlie Marr, Xavier Williams, Jamie O’Hara and Rex McAllister… all on his own! HOW IMPRESSIVE IS THAT?!
Stew-O: But how many did he eliminate, Peters? None. That’s the object of this game. We measure success by eliminations, and Farrell has a big fat goose egg in that department!
(Farrell begins hopping up and down in the ring, doing air punches as the countdown clock appears on the screen)
Eve: Number 20 on the way!
(“House of Wolves” by My Chemical Romance begins to play as Martin Daniels sprints out towards the ring with a ton of energy)
James Peters: The Grand Rampage can turn somebody into a household name in just one night and a lot of these young Elitists realize that! Martin Daniels has the bright lights shining on him tonight and he’s looking to make the most of it! He enters the ring and there’s Farrell V! They begin exchanging shots! Not much of a size difference here between the two, but radically different styles… if this was a battle with legs or feet, no doubt Farrell would have the upper hand but in a battle of fists it looks like Daniels is getting the better of the exchange!
Stew-O: He tries pushing Farrell into the corner but he quickly escapes… and now here are the kicks! ONE KICK TO THE SIDE OF THE LEG, NOW A SECOND!!… BUT BEFORE FARRELL COULD DELIVER A THIRD, MARTIN DANIELS COCKED HIS HAND BACK AND DELIVERED A HARD RIGHT HAND, DAMN NEAR KNOCKING FARRELL OUT… CERTAINLY OFF HIS FEET!! Martin Daniels keeps his fists clenched as he turns around and sees Jason McKormick attempting to get back to his feet! He aids him the rest of the way up, and delivers a punch that sends McKormick backpedaling into the ropes!
Eve: MARTIN DANIELS COMES CHARGING WITH A CLOTHESLINE… IT TAKES MCKORMICK OVER THE TOP ROPE BUT HE’S ABLE TO HOLD ON!! MCKORMICK PULLS HIMSELF TO HIS FEET… HE THROWS A RIGHT HAND AT DANIELS AND IT CONNECTS… DANIELS COMES BACK WITH ONE OF HIS OWN!! AND NOW THEY’RE GOING BACK AND FORTH!! BACK AND FORTH WITH PUNCHES, MARTIN DANIELS TRYING TO ELIMINATE MCKORMICK!!… OH BUT LOOK OUT!! FROM BEHIND IT’S JAMIE O’HARA!! A DROPKICK INTO THE BACK OF MARTIN DANIELS!! WHO GOES FLYING INTO MCKORMICK… KNOCKING HIM OFF THE APRON!!
Bella Braxton: Jason McKormick has been eliminated!
James Peters: DOES THAT ELIMINATION GET CREDITED TO DANIELS OR O’HARA?! I GUESS WE’LL HAVE TO FIND THAT OUT LATER… OH BUT LOOK AT O’HARA!!… O’HARA LIFTING UP THE LEGS OF DANIELS AND SENDING HIM OUT!! THERE’S NO DISPUTE ABOUT THIS ONE, JAMIE O’HARA ELIMINATES MARTIN DANIELS!!
Bella Braxton: Martin Daniels has been eliminated!
Stew-O: Two very quick eliminations there, back to back and the field is back down to eight! Jamie O’Hara, Xavier Williams, Rex McAllister, Daryl Kinkade, Charlie Marr, Lucas Johnson, Mark Michaels and Farrell V! WE STILL HAVE QUITE A WAYS TO GO BUT ONE OF THESE MEN COULD BE HEADING TO PAIN FOR PRIDE!!
Eve: And as we see on the far side of the ring, Mark Michaels making it back to his feet. Entering at #4 and he’s still in this one, though he’s been a bit quiet of late!
James Peters: Quiet is exactly what you wanna be in this match, don’t make yourself out to be a target! We seem to have hit another lull in this match, everyone’s down except for Michaels… but business may be about to pick up again as the countdown clock appears on the screen and we await entrant #21!
(“My Way” by Limp Bizkit hits as Ryan Wilson bursts through the curtain. He takes his time making his way down the ramp, taking everything in. He stops for a few deep breaths before sprinting the rest of the way into the ring)
Stew-O: I FEEL LIKE WE’RE ALL BEGINNING TO SOUND LIKE BROKEN RECORDS, BUT IMAGINE WHAT WINNING THE GRAND RAMPAGE WOULD DO FOR SOMEONE LIKE RYAN WILSON!! A man who’s been busting his ass over the past year on the Dynasty brand, I think he’s really come into his own as a competitor! He enters the ring with a head of steam, going right at Mark Michaels, but Michaels retaliates! The two men tied up in the center of the ring, everyone else down… Wilson quickly gets behind Michaels, applying a rear waist lock… HE LIFTS HIM UP AND THEN BACK DOWN INTO THE CANVAS… STILL KEEPING THE WAIST LOCK APPLIED!!
Eve: MICHAELS TRYING TO PRY THE GRIP APART… WILSON GETTING BACK TO HIS FEET, STILL WITH A HOLD OF MICHAELS… MICHAELS WITH A STOMP ONTO THE FOOT OF WILSON AND THAT BREAKS THE HOLD… BUT NOT FOR LONG AS THEY BOTH COME IN AGAIN, A COLLAR AND ELBOW TIE UP… AND THIS TIME IT’S MICHAELS WHO SWITCHES INTO THE WAIST LOCK… BUT WILSON QUICKLY BACKS UP INTO THE ONLY FREE CORNER AVAILABLE!! MICHAELS HITS IT SPINE FIRST AND THE BLOW FORCES HIM TO RELEASE… BUT NOW OH LOOK AT MICHAELS… HE APPLIES A SLEEPER HOLD!! A SLEEPER HOLD APPLIED ON RYAN WILSON, AND MARK MICHAELS STEPS UP ONTO THE SECOND TURNBUCKLE, HE’S ESSENTIALLY HANGING RYAN WILSON HERE!!
James Peters: WILSON IS GASPING FOR AIR, I THINK MICHAELS IS TRYING TO INCAPACITATE HIM TO EASILY GET HIM OVER THE TOP ROPE… BUT GUYS, MARK MICHAELS IS IN A DANGEROUS SPOT HERE! WE SAY IT EVERY YEAR, WE’VE PROBABLY ALREADY SAID IT TONIGHT… PUTTING YOURSELF UP ON THE SECOND OR TOP TURNBUCKLE, IT LEAVES YOU WIDE OPEN, SO EASY TO JUST BE THROWN OR PUSHED OFF AND ELIMINATED!! MICHAELS FINALLY RELEASES THE HOLD ON WILSON WHO PLOPS ONTO THE CANVAS LIFELESS… BUT LOOK OUT HERE!!
Stew-O: FARRELL V LEAPS UP ONTO THE… OH NO!! OH WOW WHAT A COLLISION!! FARRELL V WAS READY TO JUMP UP ONTO THE SECOND ROPE BUT MARK MICHAELS MET HIM IN MID AIR AND DELIVERED WHAT WAS ALMOST… WELL I GUESS I WOULD HAVE TO CALL IT A SPEAR!! JUMPING OFF THE SECOND ROPE AND DELIVERING A SPEAR TO AN ALREADY AERIAL FARRELL V!! BOTH MEN ARE DOWN, EVERYONE IS DOWN… AND YOU HAVE TO IMAGINE WHOEVER COMES TO FIRST IS GOING TO HAVE A HUGE ADVANTAGE IN THIS MATCH!!
Eve: UH OH STEW!! IT DOESN’T LOOK LIKE IT’S GONNA BE A SINGULAR PERSON… KINKADE AND MARR ARE BOTH STIRRING, GETTING TO THEIR FEET!! WHAT A STORY THEY’VE ALREADY TOLD IN THIS ONE, STARTING OFF THE MATCH TOGETHER, A BRUTAL BRAWL AT THE ONSET OF THIS MATCH, LATER FORMING AN ALLIANCE, WE’VE SEEN THE TEMPORARY RETURN OF MARRKADE IN THIS MATCH, BUT NOW THAT THEY’RE THE ONLY TWO MEN STANDING, WHAT’S GONNA HAPPEN? ARE THEY GONNA CONTINUE TO WORK TOGETHER, MAYBE TO CLEAR OUT THIS FIELD OR WILL THEY GO AT ONE ANOTHER?
(Charlie Marr and Daryl Kinkade both make it to their feet at the same time, they stare each other down but as the countdown clock appears on the screen their attention is turned to the entrance way)
(“Gangsta’s Paradise” by Coolio hits as Thadd Blazevich slowly saunters down to the ring with a big, shit eating grin on his face. He removes his snapback revealing his flowing golden hair)
James Peters: At #22 we have Brobi Wan Kenobi himself, Thadd Blazevich who’s certainly taking his time getting to that ring…
Eve: Cmon Peters! CHIIILLLLL
Stew-O: OH CHARLIE MARR CERTAINLY ISN’T CHILLING!! HE SLIDES UNDER THE BOTTOM ROPE AND CATCHES THADD OFF GUARD!! ATTACKING HIM MID-WAY DOWN THE RAMP!! MARR GRABS THADD BY HIS HAIR!!
Eve: OH NO, NOT THE HAIR!!
Stew-O: GRABBING HIM BY THE HAIR AND ROLLING HIM INTO THE RING!!… DARYL KINKADE LOADS UP HIS FOOT AND SWINGS WITH A KICK… BUT THADD DUCKS UNDER IT AND KINKADE INSTEAD CONNECTS WITH CHARLIE MARR, HITTING HIM RIGHT IN THE… IN THE… OH DEAR!!
James Peters: MARR GOES DOWN, SCREAMING IN PAIN… THADD IS BACK TO HIS FEET, HE WRAPS HIS ARMS AROUND THE BODY OF KINKADE AND DELIVERS A BEAUTIFUL BELLY TO BELLY SUPLEX!! That’s Marrkade taken care of! LUCAS JOHNSON IS HERE NOW… THADD GOES FOR A STEP UP ENZIGURI BUT IT’S DUCKED BY LUCAS… LUCAS WHO NOW HAS A HOLD OF THAT LEG, PERHAPS TRYING TO LOCK IN SOME SORT OF KNEE BAR HERE!!
Eve: BUT THADD FIGHTS HIM OFF, KICKING THAT BAREFOOT OF HIS INTO THE CHEST OF JOHNSON MULTIPLE TIMES TO GET OFF OF HIM!!
James Peters: You know you always here the snarky comments about how submissions don’t matter in the Grand Rampage, but that just isn’t the case. Submissions are the best way to wear your opponent down, and the more you wear them down, the easier it is to get them over that top rope! Thadd is back to his feet… BUT THE HUNGRY JOHNSON CHARGES ONCE AGAIN!!… BUT THADD… THADD CATCHES HIM WITH A SUPERKICK!! OFF THE SUPERKICK, JOHNSON IS ON SPAGHETTI LEGS!!… THADD GRABS HIM BY THE BACK OF THE HEAD AND TOSSES HIM OVER THE ROPES AND… RIGHT INTO THE ARMS OF FERAL KHAN!! FERAL KHAN CAUGHT LUCAS JOHNSON, PREVENTING HIM FROM BEING ELIMINATED!!
Eve: THAT’S WHY HE’S THERE, THAT’S WHY LUCAS BROUGHT HIM OUT!! Khan places Johnson gently on the ring apron, he’s STILL in this one! Thadd can’t help but laugh at that… as he turns around… AND RIGHT INTO A SUPERKICK FROM XAVIER WILLIAMS, GETTING SOME OF HIS OWN MEDICINE IS THADD BLAZEVICH!! THADD GOES DOWN!!… XAVIER IS STANDING, AND ON THE OPPOSITE SIDE OF THE RING… JAMIE O’HARA IS GETTING TO HIS FEET!! JAMIE O’HARA AND XAVIER WILLIAMS STANDING TOE TO TOE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING AT THE GRAND RAMPAGE, AN OPPORTUNITY TO MAIN EVENT PAIN FOR PRIDE 12 ON THE LINE!!
Stew-O: OH MAN, HOW EPIC IS THIS RIGHT NOW?! LISTEN TO THIS CROWD!!
(The crowd are on their feet going wild, so loud and in the moment that they don’t even realize the countdown clock)
(“Here Comes the Boom” by DMX feat. Sean Paul and Alexa Vegas hits as El Landerson jumps up from under the stage. He’s met with a loud reaction from the crowd that fires him up. He darts down to the ring)
James Peters: JUST SEVEN MORE ENTRANTS TO GO IN THE 2019 GRAND RAMPAGE!! OUT AT #23 WE HAVE EL LANDERSON WHO QUICKLY ENTERS THE RING AND… OH MY!! IS IMMEDIATELY DECKED BY… DRAKE KING!! I FORGOT HE WAS IN THE MATCH!! DRAKE KING WHO HAS SPENT THE LAST TEN OR FIFTEEN MINUTES ON THE OUTSIDE IS BACK IN THE FOLD… AND LOOK WHAT HE HAS IN HIS HANDS, IT’S THE INTERWIRE CHAMPIONSHIP!! IT’S WHAT HE USED TO LAY OUT POOR EL LANDERSON JUST NOW!! AND NOW HE STANDS IN FRONT OF JAMIE O’HARA AND XAVIER WILLIAMS… STILL WITH THE BELT IN HAND!!
Stew-O: O’HARA TAKES A SHOT AT KING BUT KING DUCKS AND RUNS OFF THE ROPES… CLOCKING HIM RIGHT IN THE SIDE OF THE HEAD!! KING NOW SETS HIS SIGHTS ON XAVIER WILLIAMS, KING LUNGES FORWARD AT WILLIAMS WITH THE TITLE, FORCING WILLIAMS BACK INTO THE CORNER… WILLIAMS DOESN’T HAVE MUCH ROOM TO WORK WITH HERE!! KING GOES FOR A SHOT WITH THE TITLE BUT XAVIER WILLIAMS IS ABLE TO AVOID IT, NOW HE HAS KING UP IN THE CORNER, UNLOADING ON HIM WITH A FEW PUNCHES INTO THE MID-SECTION… BUT KING PUSHES HIM OFF… COMES CHARGING WITH THE TITLE AND CONNECTS, RIGHT TO THE SKULL OF XAVIER WILLIAMS!!
Eve: KING IS NOW IN THE CENTER OF THE RING, SWINGING THE BELT ABOVE HIS HEAD!!… SOME OF THE FIELD ARE STARTING TO GET TO THEIR FEET HERE, BUT THEY DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO!! THAT INTERWIRE CHAMPIONSHIP BELT IS ALMOST BEING USED AS A HELICOPTER PROPELLER!! RYAN WILSON IS THE FIRST TO MAKE A MOVE… TRYING TO GRAB THE INTERWIRE CHAMPIONSHIP BUT IT HITS HIS ARM AND HE BACKS OFF… NEXT IS LUCAS JOHNSON HOWEVER THE SAME THING HAS HAPPENED TO HIM!! NOW IT’S MARK MICHAELS WHO TRIES TO SNEAK UP ON DRAKE KING FROM BEHIND BUT HE GETS WACKED RIGHT IN THE FACE BY THE SWINGING TITLE BELT AND GOES BACK DOWN!!…
Stew-O: CHARLIE MARR IS BACK TO HIS FEET, AS IS DARYL KINKADE… AND NOW LOOK!! ALL FOUR CORNERS ARE OCCUPIED, ONE BY RYAN WILSON, ONE BY LUCAS JOHNSON, AND THE OTHER TWO BY DARYL KINKADE AND CHARLIE MARR… IF THEY ALL JUMP IN AT THE SAME TIME, THEY HAVE TO BE ABLE TO STOP THAT TITLE!! THEY COME CHARGING INTO THE CENTER OF THE RING… BUT DRAKE KING MOVES OUT OF THE WAY!! ALL FOUR MEN COLLIDE INTO EACH OTHER!! DRAKE KING TAKES OUT KINKADE WITH A TITLE SHOT TO THE FACE, HE FOLLOWS THAT UP WITH ONE TO RYAN WILSON, THEN CHARLIE MARR… AND FINALLY LUCAS JOHNSON!!
James Peters: El Landerson seems to finally be coming to… BUT DRAKE KING WITH A SECOND SHOT WITH THE TITLE RIGHT TO THE FACE OF EL LANDERSON!! KING GETS HIM TO HIS FEET AND THROWS HIM OUT OF THE RING, EL LANDERSON’S QUEST ENDS!!
Bella Braxton: El Landerson has been eliminated!
(The crowd heavily boos that elimination as Drake King soaks it in. The countdown clock appears on the screen and Drake King grips his title belt again awaiting the entrant)
(“All I Do Is Win” by DJ Khaled feat. Ludacris, Rick Ross, T-Pain & Snoop Dogg begins to play. Crosby Carter quickly makes his way down to the ring, noticing that Thadd Blazevich is in trouble)
Eve: HERE COMES CROSBY CARTER, REX MCALLISTER IS UP AND HE TRIES TO GRAB THE TITLE AWAY FROM DRAKE KING!! HE HAS A HOLD OF THE BELT, A LITTLE TUG OF WAR… BUT KING KICKS HIM IN THE STOMACH… AND NOW A SHOT ACROSS THE SKULL!!… NOW CROSBY CARTER, NOTICE THE FIRST THING HE DOES WHEN HE SLIDES INTO THE RING IS GO IMMEDIATELY OVER TO HIS TAG TEAM PARTNER TO CHECK ON HIM!! Thadd finally coming to after being on the receiving end of that Superkick… BUT DRAKE KING IS THERE, KING RIPPING CROSBY OFF OF THADD!! LOOKING TO CLOCK HIM WITH THE INTERWIRE CHAMPIONSHIP… BUT THADD FROM BEHIND TAKING KING DOWN, FINALLY GETTING THE INTERWIRE CHAMPIONSHIP OUT OF HIS HANDS!!… IT FLIES OUT OF THE RING AND ONTO THE FLOOR!! AND NOW CROSBY YELLING AT CHADD, THERE’S A LOT OF DEAD WEIGHT IN THIS RING RIGHT NOW THANKS TO DRAKE KING!!
Stew-O: THADD WITH THE AID OF CROSBY GETS LUCAS JOHNSON BACK TO HIS FEET… AND HE TOSSES HIM OVER!! AND THIS TIME THERE’S NO FERAL KHAN TO SAVE HIM!!
Bella Braxton: Lucas Johnson has been eliminated!
James Peters: AND NOW THEY GET CHARLIE MARR BACK TO HIS FEET, LOOKING TO ELIMINATE HIM AS WELL… AND WHAT AN ELIMINATION THIS WOULD BE, I DON’T THINK IT CAN BE ARGUED THAT CHARLIE MARR HAS BEEN THE MVP OF THIS MATCH SO FAR!! THEY GET HIM OVER THE TOP ROPE BUT HE’S FIGHTING!! I DON’T KNOW IF HE’LL BE ABLE TO HOLD ON THOUGH, IT’S TWO AGAINST ONE HERE!! THEY CONTINUE TO PUMMEL INTO CHARLIE MARR… TRYING EVERYTHING THEY CAN TO GET HIM OUT, BUT HE’S NOT LETTING GO OF THOSE ROPES, HE’S EVEN MANAGED NOW TO HOOK HIS FEET ON THE BOTTOM ROPE!!
Eve: AND CROSBY GOES TO WORK ON THAT, KICKING AT MARR’S KNEES… OH BUT KINKADE!! KINKADE FROM OUT OF NOWHERE SENDS CROSBY CARTER OUT OF THE RING!! HE HITS THE FLOOR!!
Bella Braxton: Crosby Carter has been eliminated!
Stew-O: AND NOW KINKADE BEGINS FIRING AT THADD, GETTING HIM OFF OF MARR… I DON’T BELIEVE THIS, DARYL KINKADE JUST SAVED CHARLIE MARR!!
James Peters: What’s so hard to believe about it?! They’ve been working together for a good portion of the match!
Eve: Do you think this alliance could go beyond just The Grand Rampage?
Stew-O: The Grand Rampage is unlike any other night in EAW… there’s no telling what’s gonna happen beyond this match… all we know for now is that for one night, Marrkade seem to be back! Marr is back in the ring and to his feet… both he and Kinkade have Thadd in a corner, firing away at him… and now we have Ryan Wilson joining the fray! Wilson throwing some punches into the ribs of both Kinkade and Marr here… who again may we remind you… STARTED THIS MATCH! Numbers 1 and 2 are still in this thing!
James Peters: And now the 25th man is about to enter this match… we’re getting really close to the end!
(The instrumental of “You Only Live Once” by Suicide Silence blasts through the system as Damon Diesel marches down to the ring with a scowl on his face. He adjusts his gear as he enters the ring)
Eve: IT’S DAMON DIESEL!! DIESEL QUICKLY ENTERS THE RING, HE DARTS OVER TO THAT CORNER WHERE ALL THE ACTION IS GOING ON, HE PULLS CHARLIE MARR AWAY AND BEGINS THROWING A SERIES OF SHOTS IN HIS DIRECTION, ALL LANDING!! AND NOW OVER IN THE CORNER THIS HAS ALLOWED THADD AND WILSON TO GET A NUMBERS ADVANTAGE ON KINKADE WHO THEY’VE BEATEN DOWN TO HIS KNEES!! Diesel pulls Marr into the center of the ring and whips him into the ropes… DIESEL LOWERS HIS HEAD AS HE COMES REBOUNDING… BUT MARR THROWS HIS BOOT UP, RIGHT INTO THE FACE OF DIESEL!!
Stew-O: DIESEL, CAUGHT OFF GUARD BY THAT BOOT!!… STUMBLES AROUND THE RING… MARR CHARGES AT HIM WITH A CLOTHESLINE… BUT DIESEL IS ABLE TO AVOID IT, DUCKING UNDER IT… A FOREARM TO THE BACK OF MARR AND NOW DIESEL LIFTS HIM UP… OVER HIS SHOULDERS… IN AN ELECTRIC CHAIR POSITION!!… OH AND NOW LOOK AT THIS!! RYAN WILSON IS CLIMBING THE TURNBUCKLE… WHAT’S GONNA HAPPEN HERE?! HE LEAPS OFF… ONTO MARR WITH A CROSSBODY WHO SIMULTANEOUSLY GETS DROPPED BY DIESEL WITH AN ELECTRIC CHAIR, THAT’LL TAKE HIM OUT FOR A WHILE!! AND NOW RYAN WILSON MOTIONING TOWARDS DIESEL… THEY BOTH GRAB KINKADE BY THE ARM, PULLING HIM TO HIS FEET AND INTO THE CENTER OF THE RING… AND NOW THADD COMES CHARGING!!…
James Peters: DUDE, IT’S A SPEAR!!
James Peters: IT CONNECTS!! THE SPEAR CONNECTS ON KINKADE, TAKING HIM OUT, CHARLIE MARR OUT AS WELL… AND THESE THREE YOUNG COMPETITORS STAND TALL!!… OH HOLD ON!! DAMON DIESEL GRABBING RYAN WISLON AND THROWING HIM OUT OF THE RING!! WILSON HITS THE FLOOR HARD!!
Bella Braxton: Ryan Wilson has been eliminated!
Eve: AND DIESEL TRIES DOING THE SAME TO THADD… BUT THADD HAD IT SCOUTED AND HE SENDS A FOREARM INTO THE FACE OF DIESEL, STAGGERING HIM!! AND NOW HERE’S FARRELL V!! A JUMPING SIDE KICK DELIVERED TO DAMON DIESEL!!… DIESEL HOWEVER HAS STILL BEEN ABLE TO REMAIN ON HIS FEET… OH BUT THAT’LL KEEP HIM DOWN!! REX MCALLISTER WITH THE REX EFFECT ON DAMON DIESEL!! DIESEL ROLLS OVER ONTO THE APRON BUT STILL IN THE RING… BUT REX ISN’T DONE HERE… HE TAKES A CHARGE AT FARRELL V AND HE HITS A SECOND REX EFFECT!! HE GETS FARRELL BACK TO HIS FEET AND TOSSES HIM OVER, FARRELL V IS DONE!!
Bella Braxton: Farrell V has been eliminated!
Stew-O: A good showing for Farrell here tonight, he didn’t get the win but has nothing to be ashamed of! REX COMES RUNNING TOWARDS THADD… AND HE DELIVERS YET ANOTHER REX EFFECT!! THE THIRD ONE IN A ROW!! REX IS ON FIRE HERE AS HE POPS BACK UP TO HIS FEET, BUT HE’S TAKEN DOWN BY MARK MICHAELS… MARK MICHAELS WHO NOW HAS A HOLD OF THE ARM, AND HE’S TRYING TO LOCK IN… THE LIBERATION HAS BEGUN!! HE HAS THAT CROSSFACE APPLIED ON REX MCALLISTER, AND ROPE BREAK WON’T HELP HIM… HE’S FRANTICALLY TRYING TO BREAK THE HOLD BUT MICHAELS HAS IT IN TIGHT… SCREAMING AS WE AWAIT THE 26TH ENTRANT!!
(“Buzzin” by Mann hits as MTV quickly runs down the ramp and into the ring)
James Peters: AND HERE’S MTV ENTERING THE RING… AND HE’S IMMEDIATELY TAKEN DOWN WITH A KICK FROM DRAKE KING!! KING NOW WITH A KNEE TO THE BACK OF MARK MICHAELS’ HEAD… AND THAT’LL BREAK THAT SUBMISSION HOLD, LUCKILY FOR REX!! OR MAYBE… MAYBE NOT SO LUCKY AS DRAKE KING GETS REX MCALLISTER BACK TO HIS FEET, IT LOOKS LIKE HE’S GONNA TRY TO ELIMINATE HIM!! HE HAS REX OVER NEAR THE ROPES… AND I THINK REX IS JUST NOW COMING BACK TO HIS SENSES AND REALIZING THE PREDICAMENT THAT HE’S IN!! HE TRIES TO FIGHT OUT OF IT, BUT DRAKE KING HAS HIM HOOKED FOR A SUPLEX!!
Eve: KING HAS REX OVER THE APRON, BUT REX IS ABLE TO FIND HIS FOOTING ON THE APRON, STILL IN A VERY UNENVIABLE SPOT, HE’S SO DANGEROUSLY CLOSE TO BEING ELIMINATED HERE… ONE WRONG STEP AND IT’S OVER!! DRAKE KING GOES FOR A RIGHT HAND… IT CONNECTS!!… HE GOES FOR A SECOND, BUT REX IS ABLE TO BLOCK THIS ONE… AND NOW OH WOW… A STRAIGHT HEADBUTT TO DRAKE KING WHO STUMBLES BACKWARDS AND IS TAKEN OFF HIS FEET!! BUT REX ISN’T GONNA GET A CHANCE TO GET BACK INTO THE RING AS HERE COMES MARK MICHAELS, MICHAELS GOING TO TRY TO DO WHAT DRAKE KING COULDN’T AND ELIMINATE THE FORMER WORLD CHAMPION!!
Stew-O: Rex McAllister is one of the, if not THE biggest target in this entire match, and the other competitors… they see that he’s so close, so desperately close to being eliminated… they can’t let this opportunity slip through their fingers! Mark Michaels throws a couple of shots at Rex McAllister, they all connect! Rex McAllister has his arms up, trying to block but it’s difficult! He has to keep at least one of his hands on the top rope or he’s done for! REX WITH HIS FREE HAND IS ABLE TO THROW A PUNCH AND IT CATCHES MICHAELS IN THE JAW… STAGGERING HIM!!
Eve: BUT MICHAELS COMES BACK WITH ONE, EQUALLY AS HARD IF NOT HARDER AND OH BOY!! REX MCALLISTER IS TEETERING, THIS MIGHT BE IT… HE MIGHT BE GOING OUT RIGHT HERE!! MARK MICHAELS GOES FOR ANOTHER RIGHT BUT REX IS SOMEHOW ABLE TO AVOID THIS ONE… AND NOW HE LANDS A KICK!! A KICK RIGHT TO THE SIDE OF MARK MICHAELS HEAD, THAT SENDS HIM BACKPEDALING, REX MCALLISTER HAS BEEN ABLE TO THWART OFF ALL ATTACKS SO FAR BUT HE’S STILL NOT OUT OF THE WOODS YET, HE STILL NEEDS TO GET BACK INTO THIS RING!!
James Peters: OH AND LOOK OUT HERE!! IT’S MTV!! MTV COMES CHARGING FOR REX… BUT REX DROPS HIS HEAD, AND BACK BODY DROP’S MTV OUT OF THE RING!! THAT’S ALL SHE WROTE FOR MTV, AND REX FINALLY IS ABLE TO DIVE BACK INTO THE RING, GETTING A HUGE OVATION FROM THE PEOPLE INSIDE THIS STADIUM!!
Bella Braxton: MTV has been eliminated!
Stew-O: You hate to see it… MTV barely got started in this one but in a match like The Grand Rampage, experience is needed more than skill, very few people have found success their first time in this match!
(The countdown clock appears on the screen)
(“If Ya Smell” by Adam Massacre hits as the crowd erupts. Woogieman steps onto the stage and takes in the incredibly warm reception, he takes a deep breath before nodding his head and making his way down the ramp)
James Peters: BAH GAWD, BAH GAWD!! IT’S WOOGIE!! AND LUCK IS ON HIS SIDE AS HE’S DRAWN #27!! HE HAS THE CROWD FIRMLY ON HIS SIDE AS HE MAKES HIS WAY TO THE RING, HE SLIDES IN… REX MCALLISTER IS THERE TO MEET HIM BUT HE’S NO MATCH FOR THE MIGHT OF WOOGIE… WOOGIE WITH ONE PUNCH, A SECOND, A THIRD… A FURY!!… AND NOW LAYING THE SMACKDOWN ON REX MCALLISTER, ALMOST… ALMOST KNOCKING HIM OUT OF THE RING!! NOW HE COMES EYE TO EYE WITH JAMIE O’HARA… BUT AGAIN WOOGIE IS ABLE TO OVERCOME THE FORMER MULTIPLE TIME WORLD CHAMPION!!
Eve: WOOGIE IS FEEDING OFF THE ENERGY FROM THIS CROWD AS THEY CHANT HIS NAME, WOOGIE! WOOGIE! WOOGIE! IT’S GIVING HIM LIFE!! UGH IT’S GIVING ME LIFE!! WOOGIE LAYS THE SMACKDOWN ON O’HARA AS WELL… AND NOW IT’S XAVIER WILLIAMS… WOOGIEMAN IS FACING A TRIFECTA OF MULTIPLE TIME WORLD CHAMPIONS HERE… AND THANKS TO THIS CROWD, WOOGIEMAN IS ABLE TO STAND TALL OVER ALL THREE OF THEM!! XAVIER WILLIAMS IS DOWN!! AND WOOGIE HEADS OVER TOWARDS THE TURNBUCKLE TO CELEBRATE… DOING HIS SIGNATURE TAUNT, CLOSING HIS EYES AND TAKING A DEEP BREATH AS THE CROWD… HEY!! NO!! CHARLIE MARR!! CHARLIE MARR JUST ELIMINATED WOOGIE!!
Bella Braxton: Woogieman has been eliminated!
(The crowd explodes, throwing boos and expletives in the direction of Charlie Marr. Marr falls back into a seated position in the ring and dons a wicked smile)
Stew-O: Can someone please check on the number of eliminations that Charlie Marr has? He has to be approaching a Grand Rampage record! Marr gets back to his feet, as does Xavier Williams… AND MARR IS HUNGRY FOR ANOTHER ELIMINATION!! HE LUNGES FORWARD, THROWING HIMSELF AT WILLIAMS, TRYING TO PUSH HIM BACK BUT WILLIAMS DELIVERS A FEW CLUBBING BLOWS OVER THE BACK, THWARTING HIM NEARLY INSTANTLY!!… AND NOW JAMIE O’HARA BACK TO HIS FEET, I’M BEGINNING TO THINK THESE COMPETITORS HAVE SEEN JUST ABOUT ENOUGH OF CHARLIE MARR HERE TONIGHT, IT’S TIME TO GET HIM OUT OF HERE!!
James Peters: Xavier Williams begins directing traffic, and Jamie O’Hara doesn’t take too kindly to that! O’Hara telling Williams that he has a better plan… AND LOOK OUT HERE, SOMETHING MIGHT BE ABOUT TO GO DOWN… THEY’RE IN EACH OTHER’S FACES… SCREAMING AT EACH OTHER!!… ONCE TAG TEAM PARTNERS, TURNED BITTER RIVALS… AND IT’S GIVEN CHARLIE MARR THE TIME HE NEEDS TO RECOVER!!… MARR HITS A STANDING DROPKICK ON BOTH MEN… AND OH MY, THEY BOTH GO OVER THE TOP ROPE!!
Eve: BUT THEY’RE ABLE TO HOLD ON!! JUST HOLD ON AT THAT!! AND CHARLIE MARR HAS A BIT OF A FIT IN THE CENTER OF THE RING AS HE REALIZES THAT NEITHER MAN HAS HIT THE FLOOR!!
(The countdown clock appears on the screen)
(The lights in the arena are cut as “Wanted Man” by Rev Theory plays. The sound of an engine revving up can be heard. After a few moments, Hades the Hellraiser appears on the top of the ramp on the back of his Harley-Davidson. As the lights in the arena return to normal, Hades gets off his bike and walks down to the ring with a purpose)
Stew-O: AND THIS… THIS IS GONNA BE GOOD!! HADES THE HELLRAISER IS IN, #28… ALL 6 FOOT 10 INCHES OF HIM, AND WHEN YOU HAVE A MAN OF HIS STATURE ENTER A MATCH LIKE THIS, THIS LATE… IT’S BAD NEWS FOR EVERYONE ELSE!! HADES THE HELLRAISER ENTERS THE RING, HE’S IMMEDIATELY POUNCED ON BY CHARLIE MARR… BUT HADES EASILY SWATS HIM AWAY, RUSHES FORWARD AND DELIVERS A BIG BOOT!! AND AS IT WOULD SEEM TO BE THE CASE ALL MATCH, WHEREVER CHARLIE MARR IS, DARYL KINKADE IS NOT FAR BEHIND… HE NOW FINDS HIMSELF SQUARING OFF WITH HADES… BUT HE SUFFERS THE SAME FATE, A BIG BOOT RIGHT TO THE JAW, TAKING HIM OUT!!
James Peters: DAMON DIESEL FROM BEHIND, TRYING TO TAKE OUT THE LEG OF HADES… AND IT’S EFFECTIVE!!… BRINGING HIM DOWN TO HIS KNEES!!… AND DIESEL ISN’T DONE HERE, TRYING TO CAPITALIZE… HE HEADS OVER TOWARDS THE TURNBUCKLE, HOPPING UP ONTO THE SECOND ROPE WHERE HE LEAPS OFF WITH AN AXE HANDLE… OH BUT HE’S CAUGHT!! OH NO!! HE’S CAUGHT BY HADES, HADES HAS HIS MASSIVE HANDS WRAPPED AROUND THE THROAT OF DAMON DIESEL… HE LIFTS HIM HIGH INTO THE AIR… AND DOWN WITH A CHOKESLAM TO HELL, MY GOD THE THUD THAT MADE!!
Eve: OH OFF THE ROPES, THADD BLAZEVICH… DUDE, IT’S A SPEAR!! NO IT’S NOT!! IT’S ANOTHER BIG BOOT BY HADES THE HELLRAISER!! THIS ONE RIGHT TO THE TOP OF THADD’S DOME!! MAN THAT LOOKED UGLY!! MARK MICHAELS NOW, LOOKING LIKE HE HAS THE SAME STRATEGY THAT DIESEL HAD, ONLY THIS TIME… HADES HAS HIS BACK TURNED!! HE JUMPS OFF THE SECOND TURNBUCKLE WITH AN AXE HANDLE AND IT CONNECTS!!… IT BRINGS HADES BACK DOWN TO HIS KNEE… MARK MICHAELS RUNS INTO THE ROPES… AND OH NO, XAVIER WILLIAMS TRIPS HIM UP!! MARK MICHAELS GOES FLYING BACKWARDS OVER THE ROPES AND… IS HE OUT?! IS HE OUT?!?!
Stew-O: NO HE’S NOT, MARK MICHAELS ABLE TO SKIN THE CAT, THE #4 ENTRANT IS STILL IN THIS MATCH!! HADES IS NOW BACK TO HIS FEET, O’HARA AND WILLIAMS PUT WHATEVER DIFFERENCES THEY HAD ASIDE AS THEY BOTH LEAP TOWARDS THE DIRECTION OF HADES!! BUT HADES IS ABLE TO FIGHT ONE OF THEM OFF, SENDING A FURY OF PUNCHES AT XAVIER… HADES IS SUCH A BRILLIANT PURE STRIKER, MAYBE THE BEST WE’VE SEEN IN EAW HISTORY!! O’HARA HOWEVER IS ABLE TO GET THE BETTER OF HADES… HE HAS HIM UP AGAINST THE ROPES… O’HARA TAKES A FEW STEPS BACK… HE’S LOOKING FOR SOMETHING BIG HERE!!… HE COMES CHARGING… BUT HADES LIFTS HIM UP, TOSSES HIM OVER HIS SHOULDER… OH NO!! THE BRIMSTONE PILEDRIVER DELIVERED TO JAMIE O’HARA!!
James Peters: HADES HAS CLEANED HOUSE… HE STANDS TALL, ALONE IN THE CENTER OF THE RING!!
(The lights in the arena once again go dim and “Wizard in Black” by Electric Wizard begins to play. Darkane emerges from behind the curtain and walks slowly down to the ring, he never takes his eyes off of Hades… the anticipation in the crowd builds as they realize the showdown they’re about to get)
Eve: OH… YES!!
Stew-O: I’LL SAY IT FOR THEM, THIS IS AWESOME!! DARKANE STEPS INTO THE RING AND WALKS IMMEDIATELY UP TO HADES THE HELLRAISER!!… THIS CROWD WANTS TO SEE IT, AND THEY’RE GONNA GET IT, HADES FIRES THE FIRST BLOW… BUT DARKANE BLOCKS IT AND DOESN’T WASTE ANY TIME THROWING ONE OF HIS OWN BACK!! IT CONNECTS, IT FORCES HADES TO TAKE A STEP BACK, BUT HE STEPS RIGHT BACK UP AND DELIVERS ONE TO DARKANE… NOW DARKANE FIRES BACK… HADES… DARKANE… HADES… DARKANE… HADES HAS HAD ENOUGH!! HE WRAPS HIS HAND AROUND THE THROAT OF DARKANE, LIFTING HIM UP FOR A CHOKESLAM!!… BUT DARKANE IS ABLE TO GET OUT OF IT, HE LANDS BEHIND HADES… AND DELIVERS DEVIL MAY CRY!! THE SPEAR TO THE SPINE THAT WON DARKANE THE ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP BACK AT PAIN FOR PRIDE 11!!
James Peters: NOW IT’S DARKANE WHO STANDS TALL, BUT HE HAS SOMEONE AWAITING TO TAKE HIM ON, REX MCALLISTER RUSHES TOWARDS HIM… OH BUT DARKANE CATCHES HIM, LOOKING FOR THE DOUBLE A SPINEBUSTER!!… BUT NO!! REX IS ABLE TO COUNTER IT, GRABBING THE HEAD OF DARKANE AND PIKING HIM INTO THE CANVAS WITH THE REX EFFECT!! WHAT AN INCREDIBLE COUNTER!! REX, COMPLETELY WINDED SLOWLY ATTEMPTS TO GET DARKANE TO HIS FEET… AND I JUST MENTIONED IT, REX IS ABSOLUTELY SPENT… SO MANY OF THESE GUYS ARE, USUALLY A GRAND RAMPAGE WILL HAVE AN IRON MAN BUT TONIGHT WE’VE SEEN IRON MEN, PLURAL!!
Eve: Rex has Darkane up, nearing the turnbuckle… trying to push him over but I… guys I honestly just don’t know if Rex has the strength! Darkane isn’t even that big, it’s just the effects of The Grand Rampage! Darkane starts fighting back, he sends his boot right into the face of McAllister, Darkane is able to find his footing again, though still in the corner… REX COMES CHARGING AT HIM, BUT DARKANE THIS TIME IS ABLE TO HIT THE SPINEBUSTER… RIGHT ON THE PINE!! Darkane is back to his feet, but there’s Mark Michaels! Mark Michaels with an elbow that connects flush with Darkane, Darkane immediately goes to grab his nose… BLOOD BEGINNING TO POUR OUT OF IT HERE!!
Stew-O: AND THAT MAY HAVE BEEN A MISTAKE… DARKANE’S ENRAGED!! HE GRABS MARK MICHAELS AND TOSSES HIM INTO THE CORNER!!… AND HE’S PUMMELING INTO HIM, RIGHT HANDS, LEFT HANDS, FOREARMS AND NOW GIVING IT RIGHT BACK TO MARK MICHAELS WITH A FOREARM TO THE NOSE, IMMEDIATELY BUSTING HIM OPEN!! THAT’S FOUR MEN BUSTED OPEN IN THIS MATCH, CHARLIE MARR, DARYL KINKADE, DARKANE AND MARK MICHAELS!! DARKANE ISN’T LETTING UP EITHER, HE’S BEATEN MICHAELS INTO A SEATED POSITION AND CONTINUES THE ONSLAUGHT!!
(The countdown clock appears on the bottom of the screen and the crowd collectively rise to their feet as they await the final entrant)
James Peters: GUYS #30… WHO’S IT GONNA BE?!
Eve: NO WAY… NO WAY!!
(Diamond Cage explodes from behind the curtain as the crowd roars. Cage stops at the top of the ramp to psych himself up. He’s full of energy as he makes his way down to the ring where the action has momentarily stopped)
Stew: IT’S DIAMOND CAGE!! DIAMOND CAGE IS HERE, HE’S BACK!! HE’S THE FINAL ENTRANT IN THE 2019 GRAND RAMPAGE!! AND MERCIFULLY FOR MARK MICHAELS, THAT’S WHAT HE NEEDED TO GET DARKANE OFF OF HIM!! DARKANE IS THE FIRST TO STEP UP TO CAGE… AND MIGHT IMMEDIATELY REGRET IT AS CAGE JUMPS FORWARD WITH A SERIES OF PUNCHES, AND THIS CROWD IS ALL FOR IT!! CAGE GRABBING DARKANE BY THE ARM AND WHIPPING HIM INTO THE ROPES… AND CAGE COMES CHARGING WITH A FLYING FOREARM SMASH THAT TAKES HIM DOWN!! DAMON DIESEL SPINS CAGE AROUND AND GETS A GOOD SHOT IN… KNOCKING HIM INTO THE ROPES, BUT CAGE COMES REBOUNDING WITH A CLOTHESLINE!!…
Eve: BUT DIESEL IS ABLE TO DUCK UNDER IT, NOW DIESEL IS OFF THE ROPES… BOTH MEN THINKING CLOTHESLINE AND BOTH MEN CONNECTING!! DIESEL ROLLS AROUND ON THE MAT IN PAIN, BUT CAGE STILL FULL OF ADRENALINE IS ALREADY BEGINNING TO STIR AND MAKE IT BACK TO HIS FEET!!… AND THADD BLAZEVICH IS GONNA TRY AND SEIZE THE OPPORTUNITY, HE DELIVERS A CLUBBING AXE HANDLE ACROSS THE BACK OF CAGE AS CAGE ATTEMPTS TO MAKE IT BACK TO HIS FEET, THADD GOES FOR ANOTHER ONE… AND THIS ONE CONNECTS AS WELL, AND YOU CAN TELL IT FOUND IT’S MARK AS CAGE PACES AROUND THE RING, ARCHING HIS BACK… THADD GOES FOR A THIRD BUT CAGE BALLS UP HIS FIST AND DELIVERS A HARD RIGHT HAND RIGHT TO THE GUT!!
James Peters: THADD TEETERS BACKWARDS… AND OHH!! CHARLIE MARR!! CHARLIE MARR OUT OF NOWHERE CLOTHESLINE’S THADD OVER THE ROPES AND ELIMINATES HIM!! ANOTHER ELIMINATION FOR CHARLIE MARR!!
Bella Braxton: Thadd Blazevich has been eliminated!
Stew-O: And this is where things are about to get REALLY FUN! You know for a fact that no one else is gonna come down that ramp, each person in that ring can sense it… there’s no more reason to be conservative, throw it all out there… we’re in the end game now! Any strategy you may have had coming into this match, now is the time to implement it! ONE OF THE MEN WE SEE IN THAT RING RIGHT NOW IS GOING TO MAIN EVENT PAIN FOR PRIDE!! WHAT A MIX OF TALENT WE HAVE IN THAT RING RIGHT NOW, I COULDN’T ASK FOR ANYTHING MORE!!
Eve: The Interwire Champion, Drake King is to his feet… and he seems to be talking to Charlie Marr… maybe taking a bit of a, “If you can’t beat him, join him” approach! Charlie Marr has dominated this match and it looks like Drake King wants to form some sort of alliance with him!… WELL THERE’S YOUR ALLIANCE SAYS CHARLIE MARR!! A STRAIGHT SLAP RIGHT TO THE FACE, THE SLAP SO HARD IT TURNED DRAKE KING AROUND, AND NOW CHARLIE MARR LIFTS HIM UP, LOOKING FOR A BACK SUPLEX… BUT KING IS ABLE TO LAND ON HIS FEET… A LEAPING KNEE TO THE BACK OF CHARLIE MARR, TAKING HIM DOWN…
James Peters: OH WAIT, A MINUTE DRAKE KING… DON’T TURN AROUND… YOU’RE NOT GONNA LIKE WHAT’S WAITING FOR YOU!!… SUPERKICK!! SUPERKICK BY XAVIER WILLIAMS ONTO DRAKE KING, KING DROPS TO THE CANVAS… THE BATTERED MARK MICHAELS GETS TO HIS FEET, BUT HE’S TAKEN RIGHT DOWN WITH A SUPERKICK AS WELL… NOW IT’S JAMIE O’HARA… STILL DOWN AFTER THE BRIMSTONE PILEDRIVER, SLOWLY BUT SURELY HOWEVER MAKING IT BACK TO A VERTICAL BASE… WILLIAMS RUSHES FORWARD, LOOKING FOR A TRILOGY OF SUPERKICKS… BUT O’HARA CATCHES IT!!… HE CATCHES THE LEG OF XAVIER WILLIAMS AND BEGINS TO WALK FORWARD WITH XAVIER HOBBLING BACKWARDS!!
Stew-O: O’HARA PUSHES XAVIER AND OVER THE ROPES HE GOES!! BUT HE’S ABLE TO HANG ON, ON THE APRON… HE PULLS HIMSELF TO HIS FEET… IN EXCELSIS!! XAVIER WILLIAMS IS OUT!!
Bella Braxton: Xavier Williams has been eliminated!
Eve: What an impressive showing for Xavier Williams tonight, showing absolutely no signs of rust tonight! And of course you just knew these two would be intertwined somehow tonight! Jamie O’Hara off the elimination turns around… AND LOOK WHO’S THERE TO GREET HIM, REX MCALLISTER!! ARE WE GONNA FINALLY GET TO SEE IT?! NO!! HADES RUSHES FORWARD WITH A BIG BOOT TO THE SIDE OF REX’S SKULL… BUT REX DUCKS UNDER IT!! HADES NOW HAS HIS LEG CAUGHT UP ON THE TOP ROPE!!… AND REX PUSHES HIM OVER, ONTO THE OUTSIDE!! HADES IS OUT!! WHAT A HUGE ELIMINATION THAT IS!!
Bella Braxton: Hades the Hellraiser has been eliminated!
James Peters: No doubt one of the biggest threats in this match was just eliminated right there! And I think this is what you were alluding to earlier Stew, with an end in sight… these elitists are starting to take more risks, this is no longer a game of defense, all of these competitors are on the offensive right now, trying to punch their ticket to Pain For Pride! Hades is on the outside beside himself, meanwhile in the ring, Diamond Cage is back to his feet! Damon Diesel is there and he unloads with a right hand! Damon Diesel lands another! Cage is forced back into the corner!
Stew-O: Damon Diesel mounts himself up on the second rope and begins throwing down punches, onto the top of Diamond Cage’s head! Cage able to block a few but for the most part these punches are finding their mark! OH BUT WATCH OUT! CAGE IS ABLE TO SLIDE UNDERNEATH, DIESEL!!… LOOKING TO PUSH HIM OFF AND ONTO THE FLOOR!! BUT DIESEL WITH A BOOT RIGHT TO THE FACE STOPPING THAT! DIESEL NOW LEAPS OFF WITH A CROSSBODY AND IT CONNECTS!! RIGHT ONTO CAGE!! Cage clutches his ribs as he rolls towards the edge of the ring, a perfect balance of young talent and veterans in this match right now… I love it!
Eve: Diesel now targets Daryl Kinkade… Kinkade the number 2 entrant in this match has been conserving his energy since receiving that big boot from Hades, but now that the field is starting to thin out, you can’t really hide anymore! Kinkade is the first to make a move, chucking a forearm up at Diesel! It finds its mark but doesn’t do much than that, barely phasing him! Diesel gets Kinkade to his feet… AND DELIVERS A LOUD KNIFE EDGED CHOP!! DAMON DIESEL WITH A SECOND CHOP AND FOLKS, JUST TO GET A SENSE OF HOW STRONG THESE CHOPS ARE, KINKADE’S CHEST IS ALREADY GETTING THE APPEARANCE OF CHOPMEAT!!
James Peters: I don’t know Eve, that may be the blood mixed in from earlier! Damon Diesel grabs the arm of Kinkade and throws him into the opposite corner… HE COMES CHARGING… BUT OH!! MARK MICHAELS!! MARK MICHAELS STOPPING DAMON DIESEL DEAD IN HIS TRACKS WITH A KNEELING FACEBUSTER… AND NOW THROWING HIM OVER THE ROPES, HE’S GONE!!
Bella Braxton: Damon Diesel has been eliminated!
Stew-O: AND NOW DARYL KINKADE ELIMINATES MARK MICHAELS!!
Bella Braxton: Mark Michaels has been eliminated!
Stew-O: WHAT A PERFORMANCE FROM MARK MICHAELS!! Lasting this long all the way from number 4! Mark Michaels, you know… say what you want about him but this crowd appreciates a good performance and they’re showing that now as Michaels gets to his feet and heads to the back, obviously frustrated! DRAKE KING FROM BEHIND LOOKS TO ELIMINATE DARYL KINKADE… BUT KINKADE TURNS IT AROUND AND ELIMINATES DRAKE KING, SENDING HIM OVER THE TOP!! THE INTERWIRE CHAMPION IS OUT!!
Bella Braxton: Drake King has been eliminated!
James Peters: WHAT HAVE WE JUST SEEN?! THREE ELIMINATIONS, LIGHTNING QUICK, BACK TO BACK TO BACK… AND NOW WE’RE DOWN TO SIX!! JUST SIX MEN IN THE 2019 GRAND RAMPAGE!! Daryl Kinkade, Diamond Cage, Charlie Marr, Jamie O’Hara, Rex McAllister and Darkane!… AND OHH… LOOK AT THIS!!
Eve: The ring is split up into two groups of three… on one side we have the frakenteam of Jamie O’Hara, Diamond Cage and Darkane… and on the other… Rex McAllister, Charlie Marr and Daryl Kinkade… HOW IS THIS GONNA PLAY OUT?! DESPERATE TIMES CALL FOR DESPERATE MEASURES AND DESPERATE ALLIANCES!! Kinkade and Marr have been able to work together in this match so far, and earlier in this match we did see Kinkade help Rex out… though I believe that had more to do with Marr not listening to him than anything else! WE’RE DOWN TO THE WIRE AND THIS IS GOING TO BE ONE HELL OF A FINISH GUYS!!
Stew-O: Darkane, Cage and Jamie all exchange nods with each other as they make it to their feet… AND HERE WE GO!! DARKANE GOES AFTER REX, JAMIE AFTER MARR AND CAGE AFTER KINKADE… TWO OF THE MEN ARE BACKED INTO A CORNER, MEANWHILE JAMIE HAS MARR UP AGAINST THE ROPES, TRYING TO GET HIM OVER BUT MARR FIGHTS HIM OFF!! MARR GOES TO THE CORNER TO TRY AND GET CAGE OFF OF KINKADE, BUT CAGE UNFAZED… HE JUST STARTS GOING AFTER BOTH OF THEM!! CAGE, THE #30 ENTRANT, MAKING HIS GRAND RETURN TO EAW IS THE FRESHEST MAN IN THIS MATCH, HE’S TAKEN THE LEAST PUNISHMENT AND RIGHT NOW HE’S GIVING IT TO MARRKADE!!
James Peters: You could make the argument that 2018 was Cage’s best year in EAW! He won the EAW Championship at Pain For Pride, he ended the career of Scott Diamond… this isn’t a Cage that’s over the hill, Cage is still very much in the prime of his career! Cage grabs Kinkade by the back of his head and slams him into Marr… the two cracking skulls before collapsing to the canvas! Cage now works his way over to Darkane… and the two of them now laying into Rex… BUT HERE’S JAMIE O’HARA… HE COMES CHARGING, DOUBLE KNEES!! ONE TO THE BACK OF DARKANE, THE OTHER TO THE BACK OF CAGE… SO MUCH FOR THAT ALLIANCE!! CAGE DOESN’T REMAIN DOWN FOR TOO LONG HOWEVER, MAKING IT BACK TO HIS FEET… CHARGING AT JAMIE… JAMIE WITH ANOTHER KNEE, CAGE IS DAZED… BUT HE COMES RIGHT BACK WITH A CLOTHESLINE!!
Eve: Rex gets Darkane back to his feet, a chop across the chest is followed by a whip into the ropes… DARKANE COMES REBOUNDING AND REX MEETS HIM WITH A KICK INTO THE MID-SECTION… NOW LIFTING HIM UP AND BACK DOWN WITH A BRAINBUSTER!! AND REX FOLLOWS IT UP WITH A STANDING MOONSAULT!! AND NOW!! FROM THE TOP ROPE!! JAMIE O’HARA WITH THE GENKI CANNON ONTO DARKANE!! THAT’LL TAKE HIM OUT OF COMMISSION FOR A LITTLE BIT!! O’HARA AND MCALLISTER AGAIN EXCHANGE A GLANCE… BUT CHARLIE MARR AND DARYL KINKADE THROW THEMSELVES AT JAMIE O’HARA, TAKING HIM DOWN TO THE MAT!!
Stew-O: FROM BEHIND, DIAMOND CAGE GRABS THE ARM OF REX MCALLISTER, HE SPINS HIM AROUND AND PULLS HIM IN… MURDER. DEATH. KILL…. DUCKED!! REX DUCKS UNDER THE LARIAT FROM CAGE, NOW ALMOST INTO A BACKWARDS SOMERSAULT, HE GRABS THE HEAD OF CAGE AND DRIVES HIM DOWN INTO THE CANVAS WITH A REX EFFECT!! I’VE LOST COUNT OF HOW MANY WE’VE SEEN REX DELIVER IN THIS MATCH!!… HE GETS DIAMOND CAGE BACK TO HIS FEET, HE TOSSES HIM OVER THE ROPES, WILL CAGE GO?!?! YES!! CAGE UNABLE TO HANG ON, HE’S OUT!!
Bella Braxton: Diamond Cage has been eliminated!
James Peters: DIAMOND CAGE’S QUEST TO MAIN EVENT BACK TO BACK PAIN FOR PRIDE’S FALLS JUST SHORT!! AND NOW THINGS ARE DIRE… WE’RE DOWN TO FIVE… JUST FIVE!! THE NUMBER ONE ENTRANT IS STILL IN THIS MATCH, THE NUMBER TWO ENTRANT IS STILL IN THIS MATCH, JAMIE O’HARA AND REX MCALLISTER WHO BOTH ENTERED IN THE FIRST HALF OF THIS THING, AND DARKANE… WHO ONLY ENTERED AT TWENTY-NINE, YOU HAVE TO FIGURE HE’S THE FAVORITE RIGHT NOW, RIGHT?!
Stew-O: Well I’ll tell you one thing, James. If we can figure that out due to how fresh he still is, I’m sure that’s also gone through the mind of the other four competitors left in this match!
Eve: You know guys, we say that Darkane’s the freshest guy in this match but as it currently stands, he’s looking the worst! He’s bleeding profusely from his nose, I’m sure it’s broken… and he just received a deadly combo from Rex McAllister and Jamie O’Hara… he’s barely moved since then!
James Peters: Charlie and Daryl are both back to their feet, they see the battered and barely moving Darkane… and guys I don’t think the reason quite matters, whether he’s the freshest or the most beaten… he’s the one they’re gonna target! Marr pulls Darkane to his feet, setting him up in the corner, Kinkade takes a shot… now Kinkade holds Darkane for Marr… and MARR WITH A RIGHT HAND!! THEY DO THAT SEQUENCE A SECOND TIME, AND NOW A THIRD… MARR HOLDS HIM UP FOR DARKANE WHO DELIVERS A… NO!! HEADBUTT BY DARKANE!! HE PUNCHES MARR AWAY FROM HIM… HE DELIVERS A SECOND HEADBUTT TO DARYL KINKADE!!
Stew-O: KINKADE STUMBLES BACKWARDS… DARKANE EXPLODES OUT OF THE CORNER WITH… DEVIL MAY CRY… SPEAR TO THE SPINE!! BUT BEFORE DARKANE COULD EVEN CONTEMPLATE HIS NEXT MOVE MARR LEVELS HIM WITH THE CHARING CROSS!! DARKANE IS LAID OUT AND MARR IMMEDIATELY RUSHES TOWARDS KINKADE TO SEE IF HE’S OKAY!! Marr trying to shake some life back into Kinkade, I think he realizes that regardless of history, regardless of anything… he needs an ally right now! Kinkade showing signs of life, Marr helps him to his feet!
Marr: Are you good?
Stew-O: All Kinkade can manage is a nod… Charlie Marr nods back… AND THEN THROWS KINKADE OVER THE TOP ROPE AND ONTO THE FLOOR!!
Bella Braxton: Daryl Kinkade has been eliminated!
Eve: YOU GOTTA BE KIDDING ME?!
James Peters: C’MON NOW EVE, WHAT PART OF THAT WAS SURPRISING?! IT’S CHARLIE MARR!!
Stew-O: AND LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THAT’S CHARLIE MARR’S ELEVENTH ELIMINATION TONIGHT… THAT’S THE RECORD!! AND HOW POETIC IS IT THAT HE ELIMINATED DARYL KINKADE TO GET IT!!
Eve: I’D SAY HE HAD IT PLANNED!!
James Peters: Charlie Marr with a sadistic smile as he looks to the outside, I don’t think Kinkade yet knows what happened… but he will soon enough!
Stew-O: KINKADE ENTERED AT NUMBER 2… AND HE NEARLY, NEARLY MADE IT TO THE VERY END!! But alright guys let’s compose ourselves and look at the big picture now… THERE ARE FOUR MEN LEFT!! Darkane is still very vulnerable as he pulls himself to a seated position in his corner… in fact it would seem that each of the four men have occupied a corner! Diagonal from Darkane is Rex McAllister and opposite Charlie Marr is Jamie O’Hara… all four men bring themselves to their feet… staring at one another and it’ll be interesting to see who makes the first move!
Stew-O: Making the first move leaves you wide open for the other competitors, somebody may consider it a rookie move but SOMEONE has to! While Marr may technically be considered a rookie still, he’s no ordinary one… AND HE’S GONNA PROVE IT RIGHT HERE BY RUSHING AT JAMIE O’HARA!! BUT JAMIE IS READY FOR IT, HE SIDESTEPS THE ONCOMING ATTACK, IT SENDS MARR INTO THE CORNER AND NOW O’HARA WITH A FEW KICKS INTO THE MID-SECTION!! MARR UNABLE TO BLOCK, HE WHIPS HIM INTO THE CENTER OF THE RING WHERE HE’S CAUGHT BY DARKANE AND PLANTED WITH A NECKBREAKER!!…
Eve: I’ll tell you what guys, Charlie Marr may rue the day he eliminated Daryl Kinkade, no one has his back now! Rex, still yet to move from his corner… he plans his next move, will it be to go after the in peril Charlie Marr? NO!! REX INSTEAD CHOOSES TO GO AFTER DARKANE, RUNNING TOWARDS HIM… BUT DARKANE WITH AN UPPERCUT!! A STRONG UPPERCUT BY DARKANE HAS REX OFF HIS FEET… NOW JAMIE JOINS IN, BUT DARKANE DELIVERS AN UPPERCUT TO HIM AS WELL… REX IS BACK UP, BUT DARKANE AGAIN WITH AN UPPERCUT!!
James Peters: DARKANE IS DOING A GOOD JOB FENDING THESE TWO MEN OFF, BUT YOU HAVE TO IMAGINE AT SOME POINT THE NUMBERS GAME IS GOING TO CATCH UP TO HIM!! DARKANE THROWS ANOTHER UPPERCUT AT JAMIE BUT NOW HE AND REX ARE GETTING MORE RELENTLESS, THERE’S LESS TIME FOR DARKANE… AND AS HE DELIVERS THIS FINAL UPPERCUT TO JAMIE, REX CONNECTS WITH A DROPKICK THAT SENDS DARKANE OVER THE ROPES!!
Stew-O: BUT NOT YET ELIMINATED!! DARKANE REMAINS ON THE APRON… BUT IN NO WAY OUT OF TROUBLE AS JAMIE O’HARA AND REX MCALLISTER CLOSE THE DISTANCE!!… JAMIE GRABS ONE OF DARKANE’S ARMS… REX HAS A HOLD OF THE OTHER AND THEY’RE TRYING TO PUSH HIM OFF BUT DARKANE NEVER THE ONE TO GIVE UP EASY HIS FIGHTING LIKE HELL!! HE LOWERS HIS HEAD AND… OHHH HE’S BITING REX!! DARKANE IS BITING REX’S HAND, TRYING TO PREVENT HIMSELF FROM BEING ELIMINATED!! BUT JAMIE WITH A KICK TO DARKANE’S SHIN… REX DOES THE SAME AND DARKANE LOSES HIS FOOTING ON THE APRON!!
Eve: DARKANE IS DANGLING!! IF HE LOSES HIS GRIP ON THE ROPES THAT’S IT!! JAMIE AND REX ARE CLAWING AT HIS HANDS BUT DARKANE IS HOLDING ON, EVERYTHING HE HAS IS GOING INTO… AND HE LOSES IT!! DARKANE LOSES HIS GRIP ON THE ROPES AND FALLS TO THE FLOOR!!
Bella Braxton: Darkane has been eliminated!
James Peters: JAMIE AND REX WERE SO CONCERNED WITH DARKANE, THEY DIDN’T REALIZE CHARLIE MARR SNEAKING UP BEHIND THEM… HE SENDS BOTH OVER THE TOP!!… BUT THEY HANG ON!! CHARLIE MARR IS INCENSED IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING, HE WAS SO CERTAIN THAT HE HAD THE MATCH WON!! HE MAKES HIS WAY OVER TO REX… BUT JAMIE FROM THE APRON DELIVERS A BICYCLE KICK TO THE SIDE OF MARR’S HEAD!! AND NOW REX LOWERS HIMSELF, HE PUSHES HIS HEAD UP INTO CHARLIE MARR, SENDING HIM UP AND OVER!! CHARLIE MARR HAS FINALLY BEEN ELIMINATED!!
Bella Braxton: Charlie Marr has been eliminated!
(Rex and Jamie both dive through the ropes and back into the ring where they collapse in the center. The crowd rises to their feet for the two, the FINAL two)
Stew-O: AND THE FINAL TWO THAT A LOT WERE HOPING FOR IS THE FINAL TWO THAT WE’RE GONNA GET!! JAMIE O’HARA, REX MCALLISTER… THE MAIN EVENT OF PAIN FOR PRIDE IS ON THE LINE!! And guys, with both men down, spent the way that they are… it’s almost as if we’re starting from square one! Quarter one! The first inning! The object of the game is still the same, throw your opponent over the top rope and have both of their feet hit the floor… but the question is, what is it going to take for that to happen?!
Eve: Guys hold on, I think props need to be given to Charlie Marr here… who cares what you think about him as a person, this man made it to the final three entering at #1 AND he broke the record for most eliminations in a single Grand Rampage match… we may have just seen the greatest performance in Grand Rampage HISTORY!
Stew-O: But did he win???
James Peters: Jamie O’Hara crawls over to the rope and pulls himself to his feet, Rex McAllister is on his knees, not using the ropes to get to his feet, instead pushing, almost forcing himself to a vertical base… they lock eyes and meet in the center of the ring and this crowd is LOUD! We’ve seen it teased all night throughout the match, but there’s no one to interrupt now… WE’RE GONNA SEE JAMIE O’HARA VERSUS REX MCALLISTER AND THE STAKES COULDN’T BE HIGHER!! I DON’T KNOW WHY YOU WOULDN’T BE, BUT IF YOU KNOW SOMEONE WHO ISN’T WATCHING… CALL THEM AND TELL THEM TO TUNE IN NOW!!
Stew-O: Jamie and Rex meet face to face in the center of the ring, some words are being exchanged between the two but I can’t quite make out what’s being said. Jamie points towards the Pain For Pride sign, Rex glances up at it as well… AND NOW WE GET TO THE ACTION, THEY COME TO BLOWS!! A FLURRY OF PUNCHES BEING THROWN IN AND FROM EVERY DIRECTION AND THIS CROWD IS ABSOLUTELY EATING IT UP!! I CAN’T KEEP UP, IT’S IMPOSSIBLE… AND NEITHER MAN IS LETTING UP OR GETTING THE UPPER HAND ON THE OTHER!! REX GRABS JAMIE BY THE ARM AND WHIPS HIM INTO THE ROPES!!
Eve: BUT JAMIE COMES BACK WITH A SLINGBLADE!! REX, THROUGH THE PAIN IMMEDIATELY SCURRIES INTO THE CORNER… HE KNOWS HE CAN’T LEAVE HIMSELF VULNERABLE, HE, ALONG WITH JAMIE… AS MUCH AS THEY WANT TO WIN, IF THINGS AREN’T GOING THEIR WAY, THEY HAVE TO PLAY A DEFENSIVE GAME, THEY CANNOT AFFORD TO GO FOR GUSTO… IT’S TOO RISKY!! REX IS UP IN THE CORNER… JAMIE O’HARA COMES CHARGING TOWARDS HIM… BUT REX GETS HIS KNEES UP, SENDING THEM RIGHT INTO THE FACE OF JAMIE O’HARA!!… AND NOW REX COMES RUNNING OUT OF THE CORNER… BULLDOG!! O’HARA GOES FACE FIRST OFF OF THE CANVAS!!
James Peters: Jamie turns onto his stomach making it harder for Rex to get him to his feet, both of these competitors are SO incredibly smart, I’d argue the smartest we’ve seen in maybe the history of EAW! We don’t have a graphic for you, but if you want to know the tale of the tape between these two unbelievable competitors, Rex McAllister has five inches and about forty pounds on Jamie, I’d also argue that he’s the better striker of the two… but disadvantages of that nature have never stopped O’Hara before… they’ve never even slowed him down!
Stew-O: Rex is able to get Jamie to his feet… BUT JAMIE SWATS REX AWAY, GOES FOR A RIGHT HAND… BUT REX DUCKS UNDER IT AND SLIDES BEHIND JAMIE, WRAPPING HIS ARMS AROUND HIM, LIFTING HIM UP AND DELIVERING A GERMAN SUPLEX!! A HIGH ANGLE GERMAN SUPLEX AT THAT, JAMIE O’HARA DAMN NEAR LANDING ON HIS NECK!! O’HARA ROLLS BACKWARDS, ONTO HIS KNEES… A FAR AWAY LOOK IN HIS EYES, REX COMES CHARGING… HE CRACKS A SHINING WIZARD ACROSS THE JAW OF JAMIE O’HARA!! JAMIE MIGHT BE OUT… THIS IS THE OPPORTUNITY THAT REX NEEDS, GO ON, ELIMINATE HIM!!
Eve: IT DOESN’T LOOK LIKE REX IS IN ANY HURRY HERE!! After the Shining Wizard, he collapsed beside Jamie… he’s using these moments not to eliminate Jamie, but to regain some energy! I hope it doesn’t come back to bite him!
James Peters: I don’t think it will, this is a good strategy in my opinion! With so much on the line right now, you want to be sure that when you throw your opponent over the top rope, his feet hit the floor! And Eve… you NEED energy to do that! Energy that Rex is building right now!
Stew-O: But it’s allowed Jamie O’Hara some time to get his wits about him! He shakes his head, getting the cobwebs out… pulling himself to his feet, as does Rex McAllister… he makes his way over to JAMIE… AND O’HARA DELIVERS A KICK TO THE GUT, HE LIFTS MCALLISTER UP, LOOKING FOR A SUPLEX!!
Eve: LOOKING TO SUPLEX HIM OUT OF THE GRAND RAMPAGE!!
James Peters: O’HARA IS TEETERING BACKWARDS, HE HAS MCALLISTER RIGHT OVER THE ROPES HERE… AND MCALLISTER REALIZES WHAT’S GOING ON, AND HE’S FRANTIC… SENDING KNEES RIGHT TO THE TOP OF JAMIE’S HEAD… TRYING TO GET OUT OF THIS SOMEHOW, AND OH GOOD GOD!! JAMIE JUST… JUST DROPS HIM!!
Stew-O: JAMIE JUST DROPPED REX ONTO THE APRON, HE DAMN NEAR LANDED ON HIS NECK… AND NOW LOOK AT THE PREDICAMENT THAT REX MCALLISTER FINDS HIMSELF IN, HIS HANDS ARE ON THE FLOOR!! REX MCALLISTER’S HANDS ARE ON THE FLOOR, HE’S DOING A HANDSTAND TO STAY IN THIS MATCH!! He has his knees pressed up against the ring apron, for support, and he’s managed to wrap the toe of his boot around the middle rope… I DON’T THINK I’VE EVER SEEN ANYTHING LIKE THIS FOLKS… AND IT’S CLEAR THAT JAMIE O’HARA HASN’T EITHER, I DON’T THINK HE KNOWS WHAT TO DO!!
Eve: Jamie tries kicking at the left boot, and he’s able to get it loose but Rex is sticking to those ropes like glue, he immediately gets his foot back on… and even if Jamie is able to immobilize one foot, it’s not enough!! Rex is able to keep the other foot on the rope, and as long as he can do that, he’s safe!
James Peters: But you can’t stay like that forever! Eventually Rex McAllister is going to have to find a way back into this match, or Jamie O’Hara is going to have to find a way to eliminate him! Jamie goes to work on the other foot, trying to push it forward but it won’t budge! For all the pressure that Jamie is applying, Rex is applying just the same in the opposite direction! Jamie is starting to get very frustrated… OH AND WHAT’S HE DOING!?!
Stew-O: HE’S TRYING TO LIFT REX UP!! JAMIE GOES DOWN, UNDER THE BOTTOM ROPE AND WRAPS HIS ARMS AROUND THE STOMACH OF REX!! JAMIE STRUGGLING, BUT MANAGING TO MAKE IT BACK TO HIS FEET, HE HAS REX MCALLISTER IN SOME WEIRD, MODIFIED TOMBSTONE POSITION!!… AND HE’S WALKING WITH HIM, REX’S BOOTS ARE STILL HOOKED ON THE MIDDLE ROPE, HIS KNEES ARE STILL AGAINST THE RING APRON, BUT JAMIE IS SLIDING HIM ACROSS THE LENGTH OF THE RING ROPE!!… OVER TO THE CORNER, WHERE HE SLAMS THE BODY OF REX MCALLISTER INTO THE TURNBUCKLE!!
Eve: HE DOES IT A SECOND TIME, LITERALLY RAMMING REX INTO THE TURNBUCKLE, HARD, MAKING A LOUD CRACKING SOUND… REX CAN’T SUSTAIN MUCH MORE OF THIS!! A THIRD TIME NOW!!… BUT REX STILL MANAGES TO HOLD ON, AND NOW JAMIE, TAKING A FEW STEPS BACK… LOOKING TO GET A RUNNING START PERHAPS?! HE RUNS FORWARD, LOOKING TO SLAM REX INTO THE TURNBUCKLE YET AGAIN… BUT REX LIFTS HIS ARMS UP OFF THE FLOOR AND WRAPS THEM AROUND THE BOTTOM OF THE TURNBUCKLE, HE GLIDES AROUND THE TURNBUCKLE, FEET IN THE AIR… AND BACK INTO THE RING!! I’M IN DISBELIEF, THE CROWD IS IN DISBELIEF, JAMIE O’HARA IS IN DISBELIEF!!
(The crowd is on its feet chanting “REX!” Jamie O’Hara can’t help but laugh)
James Peters: I DON’T KNOW HOW TO DESCRIBE WHAT WE JUST SAW… BUT I MUST SAY… THE CORE STRENGTH OF REX MCALLISTER… TO DO WHAT HE DID, SO DEEP INTO A MATCH LIKE THIS, MAY BE THE MOST IMPRESSIVE THING I’VE EVER SEEN!! HE SWUNG ACROSS THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING AND DIDN’T LET HIS FEET TOUCH THE FLOOR!! HE WAS ABLE TO KEEP THEM UP AS HE SLID BACK INTO THE RING!! But as McAllister is making it to his feet, one thing is certain… HE’S HURTING!! HURTING BAD!! Jamie closes the distance between the two… BUT OH!! REX SENDS JAMIE OVER THE TOP ROPE!! JAMIE HOWEVER IS ABLE TO LAND ON THE APRON… REX COMES RUSHING WITH A YAZUKA KICK… BUT HE’S NOT QUICK ENOUGH!! O’HARA IS QUICKER ON THE DRAW AS HE DELIVERS IN EXCELSIS!! REX IS DOWN, REX IS OUT… AND JAMIE O’HARA HEADS TO THE TOP ROPE!!
Stew-O: HE’S LOOKING FOR THE COMBINATION, THE ULTIMATE COMBINATION, THE COMBINATION THAT NO DOUBT WILL WIN HIM THE 2019 GRAND RAMPAGE… O’HARA LEAPS OFF OF THE TURNBUCKLE… GENKI CANNON TO THE RIBS OF MCALLISTER… BUT OH NO!! JAMIE LANDED ROUGH, JAMIE LANDED HARD ON HIS ANKLE AND HE IMMEDIATELY GRABS IT, ROLLING AROUND THE RING IN PAIN!! AND WHAT A BREAK THIS IS FOR REX MCALLISTER!! IF THAT’S A PERFECT LANDING THEN JAMIE O’HARA RIGHT NOW IS THE GRAND RAMPAGE WINNER, BUT NOW IT LOOKS AS IF HE’S GONNA GET THE TIME HE NEEDS TO RECOVER!!
Eve: The referee is over, tending to Jamie O’Hara… and what happens if Jamie can’t compete? Is his ankle broken? I mean, we’re down to the final two… this is uncharted territory, there’s no precedent for this!
James Peters: And you can see now, Rex McAllister with his eyes open, coming to his senses… what’s he gonna do?! He sees Jamie, clearly in pain… does he just stay back? Or does he go on the attack?!
Stew-O: WHAT IS WRONG WITH THE TWO OF YOU?! AN OPPORTUNITY TO MAIN EVENT PAIN FOR PRIDE IS ON THE LINE!! YOU BET YOU GO ON THE ATTACK!! AND GOOD, THAT’S WHAT REX IS GONNA DO!! THIS ISN’T A CHARACTER THING, IT’S A CAREER THING, REX SHOVES THE REFEREE AWAY, HE PULLS JAMIE O’HARA TO HIS FEET… GRABS HIM BY THE BACK OF THE HEAD AND THROWS HIM OVER THE ROPES!!
Eve: BUT AGAIN O’HARA LANDS ON THE APRON!! O’HARA WON’T DIE AND REX DOESN’T EVEN BOTHER WITH IT, HE PULLS JAMIE BACK INTO THE MIDDLE OF THE RING, READY TO DO MORE DAMAGE!! JAMIE IS ON HIS KNEES… REX CHARGES AND LANDS THE YAZUKA KICK THAT HE MISSED ON EARLIER!! AND NOW REX GETTING A BIT VICIOUS, SENDING ELBOWS INTO THE HEAD, THE TEMPLE OF JAMIE O’HARA… TRYING TO LEAVE NO ROOM FOR ERROR, NO ROOM FOR DOUBT!!
Stew-O: AND REMEMBER… CAREER… NOT CHARACTER!! IF YOU WERE THIS CLOSE TO THE MAIN EVENT OF PAIN FOR PRIDE, YOU WOULD BE DOING THE EXACT SAME THING HERE!! MCALLISTER WAS GIVEN AN OPPORTUNITY FROM THE GODS, SO HE’S GONNA TAKE IT!!
James Peters: REX WITH ONE MORE ELBOW TO THE SIDE OF JAMIE’S HEAD, JUST FOR GOOD MEASURE!! REX NOW SETS HIMSELF UP IN THE CORNER, JAMIE O’HARA ROLLS TO THE EDGE OF THE RING, HE’S STILL SHOWING LIFE!! HE GRIPS HIS HAND ON THE ROPE, AND HE’S GRIPPING IT HARD… YOU CAN SEE THE WHITES OF HIS KNUCKLES… AND THAT’S ALL THAT’S ALLOWING JAMIE O’HARA TO STAND RIGHT NOW, IF IT WASN’T FOR THEM… I HONESTLY DOUBT THAT HE WOULD BE ABLE TO!! JAMIE’S UP AND HE STAGGERS AS HE TURNS AROUND… REX MAKES A B-LINE FOR HIM… LOOKING FOR THE REX EFFECT!! HE GRABS JAMIE’S HEAD… FLOATING OVER THE TOP OF HIM… BUT OH!! OH!! JAMIE!! JAMIE LIFTS REX AND PUSHES HIM OVER THE ROPES, ONTO THE OUTSIDE!! JAMIE O’HARA IS DONE IT!! JAMIE IS GOING TO HOTLANTA!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(Jamie O’Hara’s ankle gives out as he collapses into the middle of the ring)
Bella Braxton: YOUR WINNER OF THE 2019 GRAND RAMPAGE… JAMIEEEEEE O’HARRRRRAAAA!!
James Peters: HE DID IT!! HE DID IT!! JAMIE O’HARA DID IT!! THE LEGEND OF JAMIE O’HARA CONTINUES TO GROW!!
(Jamie O’Hara slowly rises to his feet as fireworks begin to shoot off all around the stadium)
Eve: HE OUTLASTED 29 OTHER MEN, AND WAGED WAR WITH REX MCALLISTER AT THE END THERE, THAT WAS THE MOST INTENSE FINAL TWO I’VE EVER SEEN, SO MUCH DRAMA, SO MUCH EMOTION… AND WHAT A WAY TO END IT!!
(The camera focuses in on a disappointed Rex McAllister, on his knees with his hands on his hips. He lowers his head)
Stew-O: WHAT A NIGHT THIS HAS BEEN!! THE ROAD TO PAIN FOR PRIDE 12 IS OFFICIALLY UNDERWAY AND JAMIE O’HARA IS AT THE WHEEL!! For Eve and James Peters… I’m Stew-O… signing off!!
(Jamie O’Hara slowly gets to the turnbuckle and begins pointing at the Pain For Pride sign, pyro once again begins firing off. The camera slowly fades to black)
