( A birds eye view of daytime Ancient Greece can be seen, with dramatic, instrument-based build up music playing in the background. )
Narrator: The Greek Empire… home of the rich, progressive culture that has shaped the course of history due to it’s mythology, architecture, structure and military.
( In the empty Ancient Athens, soldiers can be seen charging at each other, representing Red, Blue and Yellow colors for their perspective armies. )
Narrator: City-states clashed, and the great might of these city-states was what kept the Peloponnesian War going on for decades. The tale of the Greek Empire is one that has been told, and will be told for centuries… but now..
( The Ancient Greek city suddenly transitions to modern day Athens, and a focus is shown on the large banner promoting Elite Answers Wrestling’s King Of Elite )
Narrator: Now a new Empire stands.
( Action shots of Lannister, Jacob Senn and Devan Dubian are shown )
Narrator: And three city-states clash.
( “Crown” by Jay-Z fades in, and graphic images of Ancient soldiers representing the Dynasty, Showdown and Voltage colors clashing mix with action shots of Lannister, Senn and Dubian. )
( A Dynasty soldier lunges a sword through a Showdown soldier, as Jacob Senn is seen hitting the Jacob’s Ladder. A Showdown soldier is seen being attacked by a Voltage soldier, but counters the attack getting the kill. Lannister can be seen attempting the Feuer Frei on Dubian, but Dubian counters into the Bleeding Edge. )
( The action shots continue, and the music video continues )
Narrator: Which Lord Paramount will be the last standing? Which city-state will take control of the empire? And who will become EAW’s KING.. OF ELITE!!
( King Of Elite logo emphatically comes on the screen. )
Jay-Z Voiceover: “Fear is your only God. ”

Narrator: And now! Elite Answers Wrestling presents to you the 7th annual KING OF ELITE!!
( Camera transitions to the O.A.K.A Stadium where fireworks blast off from the top of the arena creating a spectacle in the sky while the crowd cheers in astonishment and excitement. )
Stew: WE ARE LIVE! 60,000 STRONG HAVE FILLED UP THE O.A.K.A STADIUM IN WHAT IS NO DOUBT, THE BIGGEST KING OF ELITE OF ALL TIME!
Mercer: IT’S THE FIRST KING OF ELITE OF ALL TIME, BUT I GET WHAT YOU MEAN STEW, I MEAN LOOK AT THIS ATMOSPHERE!
Kawajai: How about that card!? It is absolutely STACKED! SIX Championship matches, Black vs Williams King Of Elite finals, this is about as stacked of a KOE card as I’ve ever seen!!
Stew: All three brands will be represented tonight, and let’s take it to the Showdown announce booth to kick things off!
( Camera shows Matt Ryder and Eddie Mack sitting at the Showdown announce desk )
Ryder: YOU KNOW IT, BRO! SHOWDOWN’S ABOUT TO SET IT OFF RIGHT NOW, LET’S GET THIS PARTY STARTED!
( Camera pans to the center of the ring, where the ring announcer is standing idly by. )
Ring Announcer: The following contest is scheduled for ONE fall and it is for the Interwire Championship!
(“Hail Destroyer” by Cancer Bats plays all throughout the arena as Nick Makarov makes his way to the stage in his own t-shirt, shorts and boots)
Ring Announcer: Please welcome the special guest referee… NICK MMMMMAAAAAKKKKKAAAAARRRRROOOOOVVVVV!!!…
Eddie Mack: Nick Makarov has been a sworn enemy to EAW his entire career – he doesn’t fit the mold, past or present! With that in mind, I think we were all surprised to find out that he had signed an EAW contract but maybe that’s because he feels as though EAW and management are vulnerable now!
Matt Ryder: That would seem so because if you haven’t noticed, he has no tolerance for anything! Nick Makarov isn’t even in a referee’s uniform – he thinks he can just do whatever the hell he wants around here! I mean, he made a deal with Damien Murrow to bring extreme back to Showdown for two weeks!
Eddie Mack: Well, he also said that he was going to call this match right down the middle but you never know with Nick Makarov – he’s a loose cannon, that’s why his nature has always lead EAW astray! We’ll see if he really is going to call this match right down the middle or not! We know how much he dislikes Damien Murrow and his “champion by choice” Scott Oasis. We can’t take him as a man of his word – can we?
(“Disengage The Simulator” by CKY plays all throughout the arena as Zach Genesis makes his way to the stage in a denim jacket, washed up jeans and boots)
Ring Announcer: First, making his way to the ring… from Dallas, Texas!… weighing in at 210 pounds!… HE’S THE CHALLENGER… ZACH GGGGGEEEEENNNNNEEEEESSSSSIIIIISSSSS!!!…
Matt Ryder: If there’s anyone on the Showdown roster who I think could be something here in EAW, it’s that broski – Zach Genesis! For the past few weeks he has had made it clear, crystal clear, that he’s going to be the NEW Interwire Champion after tonight!
Eddie Mack: That was very bold of him to say but Zach Genesis has beaten Scott Oasis before, mind you! Both of them are familiar with each other and tonight, here in Greece, they’re going to fight tooth and nail until the end!
Matt Ryder: That’s right, they’re going to put on one hell of a match and show everyone how it is on Showdown! Zach Genesis said on Showdown that he’s going to kick Scott Oasis’ ass but is he going to walk out with gold? Or is he going to walk out empty-handed?
(“The Wreckoning” by Nonpoint plays all throughout the arena as Scott Oasis makes his way to the stage in his usual ring attire with the Interwire Championship around his waist)
Ring Announcer: And his opponent, making his way to the ring… from Baltimore, Maryland!… weighing in at 260 pounds!… HE’S THE INTERWIRE CHAMPION… SCOTT OOOOOAAAAASSSSSIIIIISSSSS!!!…
Eddie Mack: And that right there is the Interwire Champion – Scott Oasis! You have to be wondering what’s going through his mind as he makes his way down to the ring! I mean, neither of the two who are in the ring right now like him whatsoever!
Matt Ryder: It’s a bit unfair for him but if there’s ever been a time for him to prove himself and prove why he’s the reigning and defending Interwire Champion? It’s now! It may be practically two on one but Scott Oasis is going to do whatever it takes to win this match!
Eddie Mack: I wouldn’t doubt that for a second! Scott Oasis has been doing that for most of his career and as a matter of fact, that’s why he’s holding that belt! Are we going to see him do just that and come out with the win or are we going to see the title change hands?!
(Scott Oasis unstraps the Interwire Championship from his waist and hesitantly hands it to Nick Makarov who, instead of raising it like the referee would usually, just tosses it to the side and calls for the bell to be rung)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Matt Ryder: The audacity of Nick Makarov who first refused to wear a referee’s uniform for this match and just now tossed the Interwire Championship to the side like it was nothing! Scott Oasis isn’t too happy with that as he’s mouthing off at Makarov but if I were him I wouldn’t keep my eyes off of my opponent! Behind you! Oasis turns around… AND INTO THE BOOT OF ZACH GENESIS!!! SUPERKICK!!! IT CONNECTS SQUARE IN THE JAW OF THE CHAMPION!!! I don’t think he was expecting that but what was he seriously expecting with his back facing his opponent?! Genesis isn’t going for the cover as that was merely a warning if Oasis has his eyes off of him like that! Oasis falls down onto the canvas and holds onto his jaw as he quickly backs up into the corner! Genesis lays into Oasis in the corner with a few lefts and rights to the face! The challenger is unloading on the champion with a bunch of punches! Makarov lazily tells Genesis to get up off of him as Genesis stands up and puts his arms up! Genesis takes a few steps backwards to create some space between him and Oasis! Oasis gets back up to his feet now as the two lock up in the middle of the ring! Oasis overpowers Genesis and pushes him towards the opposite corner… Genesis jumps up onto the second rope and leaps over Oasis… taking him down with an arm drag! Oasis quickly backs up into the corner and recovers as he gets back up to his feet now and the two lock up in the middle of the ring again! Oasis has Genesis in a wrist lock and circles the ring as he tries to pull Genesis’ arm behind him to apply more pressure but Genesis runs into the ropes and rebounds off of them! Genesis takes Oasis down to the canvas and gets back up to his feet now as he watches Oasis do the same! Oasis is clearly frustrated as they lock up in the middle of the ring once again! Oasis with hard right hand to the abdomen of Genesis! Genesis holds himself there as Oasis digs his elbow into the back of Genesis and then brings him into a headlock! Oasis drops to one knee and wrenches on it as he gets back up to his feet and knees Genesis in the side of the head!
Eddie Mack: Genesis is down after that but not for long as he gets back up to his feet… Oasis is just waiting there for him as he chops Genesis in the chest and then chops him in the chest again! Oasis elbows Genesis in the face as Genesis staggers backwards into the corner! Oasis charges! Oasis with a big boot to Genesis in the corner! Genesis is still on his feet somehow but barely as he wobbles from the corner to the middle of the ring… Oasis kicks Genesis in the abdomen… DDT!!! IT CONNECTS AS GENESIS FALLS HEAD FIRST INTO THE CANVAS!!! THAT HAD TO HURT!!! Oasis gets back up to his feet and picks Genesis up… Genesis shoves him and runs into ropes and rebounds off of them… into Oasis as Oasis connects with a side walk slam! Oasis picks Genesis up again and Irish whips him to the ropes… Genesis rebounds off of them… and connects with a dropkick! Oasis is taken down with that but is quickly back up to his feet and charges into another dropkick! Genesis is waiting for Oasis now as Oasis gets back up to his feet again and turns around into a loud chop to the chest! Genesis with another loud chop and another and another! Genesis connects with a HUGE dropkick to the chest and that sends Oasis into the ropes! Oasis leans on the ropes for support as Genesis charges! Clothesline! No! Oasis connects with a big boot the face of Genesis as Genesis staggers backwards to the middle of the ring! Genesis shakes it off and charges! Oasis with another big boot to the face of Genesis as Genesis staggers backwards to the middle of the ring again and holds his face! Genesis runs into the opposite side of ropes and rebounds off of them… Oasis with yet another big boot! No! Genesis stops so suddenly and connects with a dropkick as it sends Oasis out of the ring! Genesis had that figured out! Genesis runs into the ropes and rebounds off of them to the other side of the ring… Oasis is back up his feet on the outside… SUICIDE DIVE!!! GENESIS WITH THE SUICIDE DIVE ONTO OASIS AS BOTH OF THEM CRASH INTO THE BARRICADE!!! THEY’RE DOWN ON THE OUTSIDE!!! The crowd are on their feet and cheering Genesis on as Makarov starts to count!
Nick Makarov: Uhhh… One!… Two!… Three!…
Matt Ryder: Genesis crawls towards the ring and uses the ring post to help himself back to his feet while Oasis uses the barricade to help himself back up to his feet as those in the front row are giving Oasis an ear full!
Nick Makarov: Four!… Five!… Six!…
Matt Ryder: Genesis is back up to his feet now and against the ring post… WATCH OUT!!! BIG BOOT INTO THE RING POST!!! IT CONNECTS AS OASIS BACKS UP WITH A SADISTIC SMIRK ON HIS FACE!!! THE HEAD OF GENESIS WAS JUST CRUSHED IN BETWEEN THE RING POST AND OASIS’ BOOT!!! GENESIS IS OUT!!! SHOWING NO SIGNS OF ANYTHING AND LAYING THERE ON THE MAT MOTIONLESS!!! Oasis is proud of himself as he runs his hand through his wet hair and stands over Genesis! Oasis rolls into the ring and then rolls out of it to start the count over as Makarov looks on bothered! Oasis grabs a hold of Genesis and picks him up… Oasis puts Genesis up on his shoulders… OASIS RAMS GENESIS’ HEAD INTO THE RING POST!!! THEN HE RAMS IT INTO IT AGAIN!!! Oasis takes a few steps backwards and… JUST THROWS GENESIS HEAD FIRST INTO THE RING POST!!! YOU COULD HEAR HIS HEAD HIT THE RING POST!!! THE AWFUL SOUND OF IT ECHOES THROUGHOUT THE ARENA!!! GENESIS FALLS DOWN TO THE MAT AFTER THAT!!!
Nick Makarov: One!… Two!… Three!…
Eddie Mack: The sadistic smirk on the face of Oasis has only gotten wider as grabs a hold of Genesis and picks him up again… Oasis sets him up… and connects with a wheelbarrow neckbreaker to the mat on the outside!
Nick Makarov: Four!… Five!… Six!…
Eddie Mack: Oasis grabs a hold of Genesis and picks him up once again… Oasis puts him up on his shoulders as his eyes are on the steel steps outside of the ring! Oasis has him… NO! GENESIS SLIPS OFF HIS SHOULDERS AND LANDS ON HIS FEET BEHIND OASIS!!! GENESIS SHOVES OASIS INTO THE STEEL STEPS!!! GENESIS IS BACK IN THIS MATCH AS HE ROLLS INTO THE RING BEFORE THE COUNT OF TEN!!! That was a close one! If Genesis never made it into the ring then there would have been a double count out and you know that he wouldn’t have captured the Interwire Championship! Genesis isn’t going to have this match end in a double count out let alone a count out as he rolls out of the ring! Genesis grabs a hold of Oasis and picks him up as he rolls him into the ring and then rolls in after him! Genesis stands over Oasis as Oasis tries to back up into the corner but Genesis shakes his index finger and grabs a hold of Oasis… Oasis elbows Genesis in the abdomen but Genesis punches him in the mouth as he picks him up… UH OH!!! BULLET SHOT!!! THE HANGMAN’S DDT CONNECTS AND THE COVER!!!
Nick Makarov: One!… Two!…
Matt Ryder: No! Oasis kicks out just before the count of three! Genesis is back up to his feet now as he brings Oasis up with him… Genesis picks him up… BULLET SHOT!!! ANOTHER BULLET SHOT!!! WAIT!!! NO! OASIS REVERSES IT INTO A DDT!!! GENESIS ALMOST HAD HIM RIGHT THERE BUT OASIS HAD HIM FIGURED OUT!!! OASIS USED A LOT OF HIS STRENGTH IN THAT DDT AS GENESIS YELLS OUT IN PAIN!!! There’s that sadistic smirk as it’s plastered across his face! Oasis was a mere few seconds away from losing the Interwire Championship! Oasis gets back up to his feet now as he brings Genesis up with him… Oasis picks him up… OH OH OH!!! BRAINBUSTER!!! IT CONNECTS VICIOUSLY ON THE CANVAS FOLLOWED BY THE COVER!!!
Nick Makarov: One!… Two!…
Eddie Mack: No! Genesis kicks out just before the count of three! What a match this has been! Oasis gets back up to his feet as he brings Genesis up with him… Oasis picks him up… Genesis reverses out of it and connects with a dropkick to Oasis who staggers backwards! Genesis gets back up to his feet now and punches Oasis in the face as these two brawl in the middle of the ring! Oasis punches Genesis back in the face as they trade punches one after another after another! Oasis connects with a European uppercut to Genesis but it doesn’t phase Genesis one bit as he comes back for some more! Oasis goes for a second European uppercut but Genesis ducks underneath it! Genesis connects with a superkick to the back of Oasis’ head! Oasis turns around… Genesis has him… DEAD MAN’S HAND!!! IT CONNECTS!!! THE COVER!!!
Nick Makarov: …
Matt Ryder: What’s this? Makarov isn’t going for the count? Genesis sits there in the cover for a few seconds and then lets go of Oasis as he gets back up to his feet… Genesis is as confused as everyone else is! Genesis is trying to figure out what’s wrong as Oasis is still down for the count! Had Makarov gone for the count we would have a new champion! Genesis takes a few steps forward and gets in the face of Makarov now! Are you sure that’s what you want to do?! Makarov is staring blankly at Genesis as Genesis is still trying to get to him… Makarov… FLIPS GENESIS OFF AND CONNECTS WITH THE STUNNER!!! WHAT– WHAT WAS THAT?!?!?! MAKAROV WITH THE STUNNER ON GENESIS AS GENESIS IS LAID OUT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING!!! WHAT’S WRONG WITH MAKAROV?! OASIS… OASIS IS AS SURPRISED AS WE ALL ARE! NONE OF US SAW THAT COMING ONE BIT! NOT AFTER EVERYTHING MAKAROV HAS DONE! OASIS WILLINGLY GOES FOR THE COVER AS MAKAROV DROPS DOWN TO THE CANVAS AND MAKES THE COUNT!!!
Nick Makarov: ONE!… TWO!… THREE!…
Matt Ryder: NOT LIKE THIS!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“The Wreckoning” by Nonpoint plays all throughout the arena as Scott Oasis stands up and Nick Makarov hands him the Interwire Championship)
Ring Announcer: Here’s your winner… AND STILL INTERWIRE CHAMPION… SCOTT OOOOOAAAAASSSSSIIIIISSSSS!!!
Eddie Mack: I… I’m at a lost for words… honestly, I don’t think any of us were expecting that! I know I wasn’t! Nick Makarov said he was going to call this match right down the middle, him going back on his word in regards to that is not surprising. But I thought he would have attacked Scott Oasis, if anything! Instead, he caught Zach Genesis with a Stunner and that’s the result of it! Scott Oasis is STILL the Interwire Champion! I’m dumbfounded!
Matt Ryder: Not like this. Not like this – no, no, NO NO NOOOOO! I want a rematch between these two! I want for Zach Genesis to have another shot at Scott Oasis because that wasn’t how it was supposed to go and if you’re watching, Damien Murrow, I want you to give that to us!
Eddie Mack: I don’t think he’s going to give that to us, Matt. I think he may be as surprised as we are but he’s certainly satisfied with the result of this match as Scott Oasis has retained the Interwire Championship and came out on top tonight! But I want to turn our attention back to Nick Makarov for a second – what in the hell was that?
Matt Ryder: I couldn’t even begin to ponder a motive for attacking a man like Genesis. Especially considering the chaining events that transpired up to this event. Color me shocked, truly. And without understanding. Perhaps we just don’t know this man Makarov at all. He’s just an asshole… one that doesn’t give a damn about his actions! Curses!
(Nick Makarov grabs a few beers, smashes them together and chugs them down as he then leaves the ring and walks up the ramp taunting to the fans that are wearing Zach Genesis apparel, as Scott Oasis is shown celebrating on top of the turnbuckle with the Interwire Championship)
Matt Ryder: Take a look at this! Zach Genesis slowly gets back up to his feet as Scott Oasis drops down from the top of the turnbuckle and drops his Interwire Championship… Genesis must be at a loss of what just happ — LOOK AT THIS! OASIS LAYS INTO GENESIS!!! WHAT’S THIS FOR?! THE MATCH IS OVER!
Eddie Mack: OASIS ISN’T LETTING UP ONE BIT!!! LEFTS AND RIGHTS INTO THE DOWNED GENESIS!!! GENESIS IS OUT OF BREATH AND HE’S HURT! THIS IS UNNECESSARY HE CAN’T EVEN DEFEND HIMSELF!!!
Matt Ryder: GENESIS CAN’T DO ANYTHING HE’S JUST SO HELPLESS IN THERE! OASIS WITH A FEW MORE LEFTS AND RIGHTS TO THE ABDOMEN AND THEN THE TEMPLE!!! IT’S RELENTLESS… IT’S DISGUSTING… IT’S–
(“Take Out the Gunman” by Chevelle plays all throughout the arena as a man emerges from the curtain in casual clothes. )
Eddie Mack: WHAT… WHAT IN THE HELL?! IT’S… IT’S MATT MILES!!! THE CROWD HERE IN GREECE ARE ON THEIR FEET AND THEY’RE LOUD FOR THE RETURNING MATT MILES!!!
Matt Ryder: MATT MILES ENTERS THE RING AND TACKLES SCOTT OASIS!!! I WOULDN’T HAVE THOUGHT I’D SEE MILES BACK SO SOON! LAST TIME WE SAW HIM IN AN EAW RING WAS WHEN OASIS BRUTALLY ATTACKED HIM!!!
Eddie Mack: THESE TWO ARE BRAWLING IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING AS ZACH GENESIS IS HELPED OUT OUT OF IT!!! MILES IS ON TOP OF OASIS AS HE PUNCHES HIM IN THE FACE OVER AND OVER AGAIN!!! THAT’S WHAT HE GETS!
Matt Ryder: THAT IS, EDDIE, THAT IS WHAT HE GETS FOR TAKING HIM OUT WEEKS AGO AND FOR ALMOST TAKING GENESIS OUT COMPLETELY!!! MILES ISN’T LETTING UP ONE BIT HIMSELF!!! CLOSED FISTS TO THE FACE!!!
Eddie Mack: OASIS IS TRYING TO GET MILES OFF OF HIM BUT MILES IS USING ALL OF HIS WEIGHT DOWN ON OASIS TO KEEP HIM THERE!!! MILES ISN’T LETTING OASIS GO ANYWHERE!!! THE ONSLAUGHT OF PUNCHES!!!
Matt Ryder: MILES… NO DAMMIT! NO! NO! OASIS HEADBUTTS MILES AND ROLLS OUT OF THE RING WITH THE INTERWIRE CHAMPIONSHIP IN HAND!!! MILES REACHES FOR OASIS BUT OASIS BARELY ESCAPES!!! OASIS QUICKLY MAKES HIS WAY UP THE RAMP AS MILES STARES HIM DOWN FROM IN THE RING!!!
Eddie Mack: We may still have Scott Oasis as our Interwire Champion, he may had beaten Zach Genesis because of Nick Makarov and he may had barely escaped tonight but one thing is assured, he’s not going to escape Matt Miles!
Matt Ryder: That’s right, Eddie – Scott Oasis shouldn’t even be the Interwire Champion, he should have lost this match but he has another thing coming to him with Matt Miles having returned to EAW! How fitting too, as the man known as the “Midas Touch” returns to EAW grounds in the home of Greek Mythology!
Eddie Mack: If I was Scott Oasis, I’d hold onto that title tightly because Matt Miles is back, and he’s not just back to have revenge. He’s back to take back the Interwire Championship!
( Camera focuses in on Matt Miles standing alone in the ring, as he continues to taunt towards Oasis’ direction before finally the camera pans backstage. )
(The camera cuts to the backstage area where we see the cold-eyed Jacob Senn, placing his kick-pads on his legs, as he prepares for his King of Elite Finals Match against Lannister and Devan Dubian.)
“Knock! Knock! Knock!”
Jacob Senn: It’s open.
(You hear the doorknob click as the door opens and Jacob Senn looks up with a grin cocked on his face.)
Senn: I wondered when you would show your face to me.
???: Well, with all I have on Showdown, time is not a necessity to be wasted on nostalgia.
(The camera pans to show the face of… Damien Murrow.)
Damien Murrow: Good to see you in the happiest of moods.
Senn: Haha, now why are you here?
Murrow: Just to ask you a simple question that has been bothering me since the last time we talked… and you never answered. Why?
Senn: Excuse me?
Murrow: Why did you do it? You had the entire world in the palm of your hands, you were truly a man who could have conquered it if that is what you wanted, but instead, you pissed it all away because of some petty rivalry with Crash as you stomped his head in? Why?
Senn: You should know why. The man simply wanted me to be his little puppet—
Murrow: Then let him think that! Are you that prideful that you cannot stand the fact that he is the chairman now and he writes his name of your paychecks?
Senn: Look, I am not here to argue this point with you. By the way, how is that Oasis kid treating you? Rumor is that he is a beast inside the ring.
Murrow: The kid is fine, but he is not Jacob Senn. The real reason I came out is to tell you that tonight… there is no way you are going to defeat Lannister.
Senn: Really? I have lost that much faith from you, huh?
Murrow: No, that is not it. I vouched for him months ago because of one reason, when the man wants something, he gets it. There is nothing, and I mean nothing, that he desires more in this world than that crown, and he will destroy you and Dubian to make sure that he can have it.
Senn: Trust me; I have handled worse than him.
Murrow: You handled worse with me, with Crash, and with him along your side, but now you are just a lone wolf separated from the pack because of his ill-advised decisions from his behalf. I am telling you this as a friend, Jacob. Get out of this match, while you still have a career, for there will not be much left when he is finished. Nice speaking to you.
(Damien Murrow walks out of the room as Jacob Senn is left with a harrowing warning from his former manager, as he must contemplate these words, but not let them haunt him in his battle for the crown.)
( Camera returns to the arena, showing the RA standing at ringside )
Ring Announcer: Ladies and Gentlemen… this next match is scheduled for ONEEE FALLLL!!!!
(“Beast” – Nico Vega hits as Lucian Black slowly walks through the curtain and down to the ring.)
RA: Introducing first from San Francisco, California, weighing in tonight at 265 POOUNDS!!! HE IS THE “MAN OF HONOR”… LUUCCCIAANN BLLLLAACCCKKKKK!!!!!
Stew-O: And it’s time for a match that I’ve personally been looking forward to all week. We all watched as this has unfolded over the past few weeks, seeing that this goes back a whole lot further than what Lucian Black did to Xavier Williams at Road to Redemption. We’ve watched as this man has destroyed Xavier over the past few weeks; as I just said, costing Xavier Williams at Road to Redemption with that brutal chair shot and spear. Just a week later, Lucian powerbombed Xavier off of that stage into our technical equipment and last week, we seen as he took him out before his match against the new National Extreme Champion, Christopher Corrupt.
HBG: Lucian has been unforgiving, brutal and almost unstoppable since House of Glass. Mr DEDEDE needing to pull out almost everything out of his bag of tricks to retain the World Heavyweight Championship, it took both Tyler Parker and Xavier Williams to keep the man down in the Elimination Chamber; tonight Xavier Williams has more than enough to handle with this man and while we’ve watched as he’s overcome these challenges in the past, I think Xavier is walking into a fight that he cannot win.
(“House of the Rising Sun” – Five Finger Death Punch hits as Xavier Williams slowly walks through the curtain with the Cash in the Vault in his left hand. Xavier’s eyes running across the crowd before finally locking on Lucian; he slowly begins to walk down to the ring.)
RA: And introducing his opponent… from Detroit, Michigan, weighing in tonight at 227 POOUNDSSS!!!! HE IS THE SELF PROFESSED “GREATEST WRESTLER TO EVER LIVE”, HE IS “MR. CASH IN THE VAULT!” XAAAAVVIEEEERR WILLLLIIAAAAMMSSSS!!!
Stew-O: As you said, in the past Xavier has overcome challenges that we thought that he would not. He was the deciding factor in Team Crash vs Team DEDEDE at Territorial Invasion, he ended Dark Demon’s career a few months ago on Voltage and while you may believe that this is a challenge that Xavier just cannot overcome, I beg to differ. I believe that Xavier has more than enough to take Lucian Black down; yes, Lucian has seemed unstoppable, but Xavier Williams has a heart that just doesn’t seem to die; he walked into Shock Value, into an environment that a guy like Diamond Cage feels at home in and was the only man to walk out. Lucian Black needs to make sure that he isn’t making the mistake of underestimating Xavier tonight, because I guarantee to you that, if he does, Xavier Williams will take complete advantage.
HBG: I see where you’re coming from, but let me come back at you with this: just look at the punishment that Xavier Williams has taken over the past few weeks, could he possibly be walking into King of Elite at 100 percent?
Stew-O: That’s a question that I do not know the answer of, but I’m sure that we’re about to find out.
(Ding, Ding, Ding!)
Stew-O: The bell rings signalling that this match is underway. The two men slowly walking to the middle of the ring, coming nose to nose, you can just feel the electricity in the air… AND XAVIER WILLIAMS THROWS A HARD RIGHT! LUCIAN FIRES BACK WITH ONE OF HIS OWN! THESE TWO MEN TRADING BLOWS, BOTH MEN REFUSING TO GIVE THEIR OPPONENT ANYTHING! LUCIAN BLACK CRACKING XAVIER IN THE JAW, KNOCKING HIM BACK— BUT XAVIER FIRES BACK WITH A KICK TO THE CHEST! AND ANOTHER! Xavier Williams beginning to gain the upperhand as Lucian Black stumbles back into the ropes and Xavier looks to send him over the top! But, Lucian dropping the shoulder, using the momentum of Xavier to send him up and over but, Xavier catches himself on the apron! Xavier with a hard forearm to the jaw of Lucian; Lucian trying to fire back with a shot of his down, but Xavier ducking underneath and drives his shoulder into his mid-section! Lucian Black dropping down to a knee as Xavier leaps over the top rope, looking for the sunset fli— BUT LUCIAN BURSTING BACK UP AND CATCHES XAVIER ON HIS SHOULDER AND TAKES HIM DOWN WITH A RUNNING POWERSLAM! XAVIER WILLIAMS DRIVING DOWN HARD INTO THE CANVAS!
HBG: It was almost like Lucian knew what Xavier Williams was going to bring in the opening minutes of this match, catching him straight out of mid-air! Xavier’s spine jarring in pain as he tries to drag himself back to his feet; Lucian stalks as Xavier makes his way back to a knee AND LUCIAN GRABBING XAVIER WILLIAMS AND SENDS HIMSELF SHOULDER FIRST INTO THE STEEL POST! You could hear the impact as flesh met steel! Xavier Williams pushing himself out of the corner, stumbling backwards AS LUCIAN BLACK LOCKS THE WAIST OF XAVIER WILLIAMS AND ALMOST DROPS HIM ON THE BACK OF HIS HEAD WITH THAT RELEASE GERMAN SUPLEX! XAVIER WILLIAMS GETTING COMPLETELY DOMINATED BY LUCIAN BLACK! Xavier Williams dragging himself over to the corner, using those turnbuckles to get back to his feet as Lucian charges… and drives that shoulder into the sternum of Xavier Williams! And another! The air being driven out of the lungs of Xavier as Lucian Black grabs him by the air and drags him out of the corner— before emphatically taking him back down with an overhead belly to belly suplex! Xavier Williams unable to get out of the starting gates as Lucian has complete control!
Stew-O: Xavier needs to find a way back into this match and he needs to find it quickly, because I don’t know how much longer that he’s going to be able to withstand this punishment. Xavier’s made his way back to a knee as Lucian drags him back up to his feet and locks in the bearhug, trying to completely take Xavier Williams out of this match! Xavier Williams screaming in pain as you can see Lucian Black attempt to crush his spine with that brute strength! Xavier trying to fight out of it! Xavier with a shot to the head of Lucian, and another! Repeated shots to head of Lucian! Lucian’s forced to release to hold— MOMENT OF SILENCE! SUPERKICK TO THE JAW OF LUCIAN! NO, LUCIAN CATCHES THE FOOT OF XAVIER! BUT XAVIER WITH THE ENZIGURI! LUCIAN BLACK’S STUNNED… AND XAVIER TAKES HIM WITH A PICTURE PERFECT DROPKICK TO THE JAW! But, Lucian wisely rolling under the bottom rope, not allowing Xavier Williams to continue this flurry of offense— BUT LOOK AT XAVIER! XAVIER WILLIAMS BURSTING THROUGH THE ROPES WITH THE SUICIDE DIVE! LUCIAN BLACK SENT CRASHING INTO THE BARRICADE AS THE REFEREE BEGINS TO COUNT!
ONEEEEE!!! TWOOOOO!!!! THREEEEE!!!!
HBG: Both men starting to drag themselves back to their feet; Xavier Williams still feeling the effects from the onslaught earlier in the match, but he is the first man back to a vertical base! Lucian Black has made his way back to a knee as Xavier grabs him by the head and drags him up to his feet! Xavier Williams has him set— and takes him down with that hangman’s neckbreaker!
FOURRRRR!!!! FIVEEEEE!!!! SIXXXXX!!!!
HBG: You can feel the momentum beginning to shift as Xavier drops an elbow across the chest of Lucian, and another, and another! Four, five, six, seven, eight, nine… Xavier standing over Lucian Black as a big smile crosses his face and he runs his fingers through his hair— TEN! Ten hard elbow drops to the heart of Lucian Black! Xavier slowly dragging Lucian Black to his feet and rolls him back into the ring! Xavier Williams jumping up onto the apron before beginning to make his way up to the top rope! Lucian’s making his way back to his feet as Xavier’s perched in wait! DIVING CROSSBODY! LUCIAN CATCHES HIM! LUCIAN CATCHES HIM OUT OF MID AIR AGAIN! FALLAWAY SLAM! NO, XAVIER’S ABLE TO LAND ON HIS FEET! LUCIAN HAS NO IDEA! LUCIAN TURNS AROUND— STRAIGHT INTO THAT JUMPING DDT! LUCIAN COUNTERS AGAIN! LUCIAN USING HIS STRENGTH TO KEEP XAVIER UP! XAVIER’S TRAPPED! LUCIAN BLACK THROWING XAVIER UP INTO THE AIR— AND EMPHATICALLY TAKES BACK DOWN WITH A SAMOAN DROP! LUCIAN BLACK GOES FOR THE COVER!
ONEEEEEEEEEE!!!!! TWOOOOOOOO!!!! KICKOUT!!!!
Stew-O: XAVIER GETS THE SHOULDER UP! You can see that all of the air was knocked out of the lungs of Xavier, taking deep breaths, trying to recover as quickly as he can after such a high impact move. Xavier slowly beginning to sit up as Lucian Black stalks from behind. Xavier Williams getting back to his feet as Lucian Black hits the ropes AND ALMOST TAKES HEAD OFF WITH A LARIAT! XAVIER IS JUST SYSTEMATICALLY BEING PICKED APART! A glazed look crossing the eyes of Xavier and from this point, you have to wonder about how much more Xavier Williams is going to be able to take. Somehow, Xavier Williams sitting moving, once again starting to sit up which only seems to anger Lucian Black more than he already is. Lucian Black lining Xavier Williams up as he gets back to his feet! ANOTHER LARIAT! AND ONCE AGAIN XAVIER WILLIAMS IS SENT BACK DOWN! THIS… THIS IS COMPLETE DOMINATION!

HBG: IT’S ALMOST LIKE HE’S TELLING LUCIAN TO FINISH HIM! LUCIAN HITTING THE ROPES AGAIN! ONE LAST LARI— MOMENT OF SILENCE! THIS TIME THE SUPERKICK CONNECTS! LUCIAN, STILL ON HIS FEET STUMBLES BACK INTO THE CORNER! SOMEHOW XAVIER WILLIAMS IS STILL FIGHTING! LUCIAN BLACK TRYING TO SHAKE OUT THE COBWEBS AS XAVIER WILLIAMS CHARGES!

Xavier clawing his way over to the ropes, using them to drag himself back to his feet as Lucian makes his way back to a knee! Xavier Williams with a hard kick to the chest of Lucian Black and hits him with another; Lucian dropping down to his hands and knee as this never say die attitude of Xavier Williams continues to fight through the pain.

HBG: XAVIER WILLIAMS KICKS OUT! Lucian Black staring at the referee, almost certain that it should have been three! Both of these men leaving everything they have in this ring, neither men are going to stay down until they can physically no longer. Lucian Black slowly sitting up, still feeling the effects of that Crown of Thorns from Xavier Williams a few moments ago. Lucian Black starting to make his way back to his feet, as if Xavier Williams. Both men are up! Lucian jacking the jaw of Xavier with a hard right! Xavier Williams fires back with a shot of his own! These two these back to slugging it out, which man is going to gain the advantage!

(“House of the Rising Sun” – Five Finger Death Punch hits as Xavier Williams slowly rolls off of Lucian Black.)
RA: THE WINNER OF THIS MATCH… MR. CASH IN THE VAULT!!! XAVVVVIIIEEEEER WILLLLLIIIAAMSSSSS!!!!
Stew-O: XAVIER DOES IT! XAVIER WILLIAMS BEATS LUCIAN BLACK! WHAT A MATCH!
HBG: I didn’t think that Xavier was going to be able to pull this out tonight, but I was wrong, great victory to the man!
(Xavier Williams stands on the stage as Lucian Black slowly sits up, Xavier raises his Cash in the Vault into the air.)
(Scene goes backstage as we see Tarah Nova walking around backstage, ready for her final battle against Cameron Ella Ava until she spots a familiar face in front of her)
Tarah: Hello, Haruna! Konnichiwa!
(Tarah approaches Haruna who just arrived in the arena as Haruna looks at her in confusion.)
Haruna: It’s “Konbanwa” right now….
Tarah: Oh, okay… right, no matter, anyway, if I’m not mistaken, you have no match tonight, right? So…. why are you here?
(Haruna is about to open her mouth but Tarah interrupts it by putting her finger on Haruna’s lips)
Tarah: Hush! Hush! I know why….. You came here to support me, didn’t you? You came here to say thank you to me because I indirectly helped you to win your big match against Cameron two weeks ago, right? Aww…. Haruna! You’re such a sweet young girl. You don’t need to do this. Two weeks ago I intended to help you deep in the bottom of my heart, I didn’t need you to return the favor.
Tarah: Hey, you do know the reason why I decided to help you? Hell, you know the reason why I won’t come after you once I crush Cameron? Because I don’t look at you as an ordinary vixen. You’re so pretty and cute, but yet you are dangerous and feisty. Plus that attitude when we met for the first time… ooh, I liked that…. I see a lot of me in you. Kind of like a “mini-me”. I remember when I was just like you, young and naive.
(Tarah finally stops talking as Haruna responds it with a grin on her face before she talks)
Haruna: Miss Nova, honey….. thank you for that compliment. I’m flattered, really, to be honest. But you know what’s in my mind? I didn’t see you in myself. For me, you’re nothing more like a coward who claim yourself as a “Vixen Killer”.
Tarah: … What?
Haruna: You heard me, you are overly proud olf yourself because of that crappy victory you had against one vixen, I repeat, ONE vixen and you celebrate it like you’ve just won everything. Pity…. you claim yourself as a “Vixen Killer” but you don’t even know how to kill a vixen properly.
(Tarah slowly goes furious by Haruna’s verbal insult and she gets in Haruna’s face. Haruna shows a fake surprised expression as she gently backs Tarah away from her)
Haruna: Hey, hey, hey….. what that face for? You want to punch me? are you sure? you want to hurt your mini-me? you will get hurt as well when you punch your mini-me, won’t you? So, please lower your fist and calm yourself. I came here in peace and I’m here for one thing. Yes, I want to came here for you…. I want to see the self-proclaimed-Vixen-Killer kill Miss Ava in her own-created match and I want to see it in a closer look. Hey, I don’t even mind to be called Tarah Nova’s mini-me but first, I want to see how my maxi-me do the job done in this so-called Final Battle. I want you to kill Miss Ava. I mean, REALLY kill her so I can convince myself to finally look at you are a real Vixen Killer. So…..
(Haruna wraps her hands to Tarah’s shoulder as Haruna whispers something to her ear)
Haruna: Impress me!
(Haruna ends it with a kiss to Tarah’s cheek as she leaves her somewhere around the backstage. Tarah wipes her cheek where Haruna’s lips landed and looks on.)
( Camera returns to the Voltage announce desk )
Mercer: Interesting dynamic here, but Haruna’s right about one thing, this match for Tarah Nova is do or die because these girls WILL kill each other!
Kawajai: It’s do or die for Cameron too, that rubber match is going to be one for the books. But coming up next we have another title match, PURE Championship on the line!
Ring Announcer: The following contest is scheduled for ONE fall and it is for the PURE CHAMPIONSHIP!!!…
(“Battle Cry” by contRoVersy plays all throughout the arena as Ares Vendetta makes his way to the stage in a riot-like attire)
Ring Announcer: First, making his way to the ring… from The Land of the Rising Sun!… weighing in at 217 pounds!… HE’S THE CHALLENGER… ARES VVVVVEEEEENNNNNDDDDDEEEEETTTTTTTTTTAAAAA!!!…
Jake Mercer: Here he is, the son of Mikado Sekaiichi – Ares Vendetta! The aura he has is as chilling as his father’s and that same aura has led us to wonder exactly what all he has to come for those who have wronged his father! Those who has itched into his very skin! Tonight? Tonight could be the night in which this young man takes a LEAP toward just that if he’s to beat Ryan Savage and become the NEW Pure Champion!
(“Black Mask” by Revolution Dominion plays all throughout the arena as Ryan Savage makes his way to the stage in his usual ring attire with the Pure Championship around his waist)
Ring Announcer: And his opponent, making his way to the ring… from Cleveland, Ohio!… weighing in at 235 pounds!… HE’S THE REIGNING AND DEFENDING PURE CHAMPION… RYAN SSSSSAAAAAVVVVVAAAAAGGGGGEEEEE!!!…
Kawajai: You heard right, the reigning and defending Pure Champion – Ryan Savage! It was at Shock Value where he beat Sephiroth for that very title that’s around his waist right now! And it all comes down to tonight… WILL Ryan Savage retain the Pure Championship?
(Ryan Savage unstraps the Pure Championship from around his waist and hands it to the referee who, raises it for everyone to see, before checking on both Ares Vendetta and Ryan Savage as he calls for the bell)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Jake Mercer: Ares Vendetta and Ryan Savage both step into the middle of the ring as they stare each other down intensely… this is for the Pure Championship and you have to keep in mind that this match is to be contested under Pure rules! Neither of these two are taking their eyes off the other… Ryan with a loud open-handed chop to the chest of Ares! Ares’ chest is barely bruised as he comes back with a loud open-handed chop of his own to the chest of Ryan! That’s not going to leave a scratch as Ryan looks down at his chest and then back up at Ares as the two continue to chop one another! Each chop becomes more and more intense! They’re reddening each other’s chests with these chops! Ryan blocks a chop from Ares and kicks Ares in the abdomen… Ares comes back with a hip toss! Ryan is back up to his feet now as Ares connects with a forearm smash to the side of Ryan’s head! Ryan comes back with a HUGE kick to the abdomen of Ares as he picks him up… AND DROPS HIM WITH A SIDE WALK SLAM!!! Ryan is back up to his feet now as he brings Ares up with him and Irish whips him into the corner… Ares is in a sitting position as Ryan charges! A big boot to the face of Ares! Ryan grabs a hold of Ares and brings him up with him… Ryan has him set up here… Ares slips out of it and has Ryan right where he wants him! Ares with a jumping superkick to the back of Ryan’s head! Ryan falls down face first into the canvas after that sickening blow!
Kawajai: That HAS to hurt as Ares is waiting for Ryan to get back up to his feet! Ares slaps Ryan in the head hard! Ares slaps Ryan again but this time in the face! Ares slaps him again as he’s just mocking Ryan! Ares takes a few steps back to create space between him and Ryan as Ryan is back up to his feet now… Ares charges! Clothesline! Not so fast as Ryan ducks underneath it and rebounds off of the ropes as he goes for a clothesline of his own! Ares ducks underneath it and reaches around his waist as he has Ryan in a waist lock… Ryan grabs a hold of Ares’ hands and removes them from his waist… Ryan reverses it and has him! Backbreaker! It connects as Ares is down momentarily after that as Ryan brings him up to his feet with him and Irish whips him into the corner again… Ryan charges! A big boot to the face of Ares again! No! Ares gets out of the way just in time! Ryan is up on the top rope in a very uncomfortable position here… ARES WITH A DROPKICK TO RYAN WHILE HE’S PRONE ON THE TOP ROPE!!! ARES WITH A FEW FOREARM SMASHES TO THE FACE OF RYAN!!! Ares backs up as Ryan falls down from the top rope… Ryan is back up to his feet now as he stumbles into Ares… LIMIT BREAK!!! THE GERMAN SUPLEX… INTO THE ROLLING GERMAN SUPLEX… INTO THE RELEASE ROLLING GERMAN SUPLEX!!! IT CONNECTS AS ARES GOES FOR THE COVER!!!
Referee: ONE!!!!!!!!……… TWO!!!!!!!!………
Jake Mercer: No! Ryan kicks out just after the count of two! It’s going to take MUCH more for a series of German suplexes like that for Ryan to stay down for a mere three seconds! Ares pulls back his long hair and gets back up to his feet as he brings Ryan up with him… Ares picks him up… LIMIT BREAK!!!??? NO NO! RYAN REVERSES OUT OF THE FIRST GERMAN SUPLEX AND INTO A SNAP DDT!!! ARES FALLS FACE FIRST INTO THE CANVAS HARD AFTER THAT!!! Ryan is waiting for Ares to get back up to his feet… as soon as he does… clothesline! Ares gets back up to his feet after that clothesline and is taken down again with another clothesline! Ryan connects with a few more clotheslines as Ares gets back up to his feet and stumbles into Ryan… Ryan has him… REVELATIONS!!! WOW!!! IT CONNECTS IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING AS RYAN GOES FOR THE COVER!!!
Referee: ONE!!!!!!!!……… TWO!!!!!!!!………
Kawajai: No! Ares kicks out just after the count of two! Ryan is back up to his feet… Ares is back up to his feet as well… Ryan charges at Ares with a shoulder block! That takes Ares down for the moment as Ryan grabs a hold of Ares and picks him up… Ryan has him in a powerbomb position… OH NO! RYAN IS GOING TO POWERBOMB ARES INTO THE CORNER!!! RYAN… NO! ARES SLIPS OUT OF IT AND TAKES RYAN DOWN WITH A LOW DROPKICK TO THE KNEES!!! Ryan is down on all fours now after that as Ares grabs a hold of him… Ares has him… SAKUJO SCREWDRIVER!!!! THE RESEMBLANCE OF HIS FATHER IS SCARY AS THE VERTICAL SUPLEX INTO A TOMBSTONE PILEDRIVER CONNECTS!!! Ares backs up… he’s going for it… METEORA!!! IT CON– NO! RYAN ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY AND GETS BACK UP TO HIS FEET AS HE CHARGES!!! SPEAR!!! SPEAR!!! SPEAR!!! RYAN WITH THE SAME SPEAR AS HIS MENTOR MR. DEDEDE!!! THE VERY SAME SPEAR HIS MENTOR USED ON ARES’ FATHER THAT LED TO HIS WIN AT PAIN FOR PRIDE!!! That’s a hell of a way to come back but… uh… both Ares AND Ryan are motionless in the middle of the ring! Come on Ryan! Make the cover!
(The lights in the arena go out)
Jake Mercer: What in the hell? What’s going on? Why can’t I see anything?!
(The lights in the arena come back on)
Kawajai: LOOK!!! LOOK!!! IT’S VIC VENDETTA!!! IT’S ARES’ UNCLE!!! WHAT IS HE DOING OUT HERE AND WHAT’S HE GOING TO DO IN THIS MATCH?! Both Ares and Ryan are slowly back up to their feet now… WHAT’S THIS?!?!?! VIC HAS ARES!!! NO… NO! CHARLES MANSON!!! VIC HAS JUST LAID OUT HIS OWN NEPHEW!!! AND THE REFEREE! THE REFEREE IS CALLING FOR THE BELL!!! THE REFEREE IS CALLING FOR AN END TO THIS MATCH!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Jake Mercer: LOOK!!! RYAN IS ABSOLUTELY LIVID RIGHT NOW AFTER WITNESSING THAT AS HE LAYS INTO VIC NOW WITH LEFTS AND RIGHTS TO THE FACE!!! What… just what could this mean though? Is Ares the NEW Pure Champion or not? This match was in Pure rules and in the rules it states that the title could change hands in a disqualification or count out! Ryan though isn’t having any of this as he has more lefts and rights for Vic! Uh oh… Ares is back up to his feet with a… with a smile on his face?! Just why in the hell is he smiling?! Was this idea?! ARES SHOVES RYAN OFF OF VIC AND LAYS INTO HIM WITH PUNCHES OF HIS OWN TO HIS FACE!!! VIC IS BACK UP TO HIS FEET AS HE LAYS INTO RYAN WITH ARES!!! BOTH OF THEM ARE JUST GIVING IT TO RYAN RIGHT NOW!!! RYAN IS TRYING TO DEFEND HIMSELF BUT HE JUST CAN’T!!! Ares stands up and takes a few steps back as Vic grabs a hold of Ryan and has him grounded… ARES!!! METEORA!!! METEORA ON RYAN SAVAGE!!! RYAN IS OUT OF IT!!! RYAN ISN’T EVEN TWITCHING AS ARES… ARES TAKES THE PURE CHAMPIONSHIP FROM THE REFEREE AS HE AND VIC EXIT THE RING!!! ARES IS WALKING UP THE RAMP WITH WHAT’S RYAN’S? HIS? WHOEVER’S PURE CHAMPIONSHIP!!!
Kawajai: I’m confused as to who’s it is! Is it still Ryan Savage’s?! Or is it now Ares Vendetta’s?! I have NO idea whatsoever and I don’t think either of us are going to have an idea until we find out what happens next on Voltage!
Jake Mercer: Ares Vendetta may just be the NEW Pure Champion… and that? Is a scary thought…
(The scene fades backstage as Eve quickly follows Lucian Black as he makes his way out of the arena.)
Eve: Lucian… Lucian, can I get a word about your match tonight?
(Lucian stops walking and slightly drops his head.)
Lucian: Eve… they say that men aren’t remembered for the battles that they have lost, but they’re remembered for the wars that they have won…
(Lucian grabs his bag and continues to leave as Eve looks on before the screen returns to an aerial shot of the O.A.K.A Stadium, and the World Heavyweight Championship graphic appears on the screen )
Ring Announcer: This match is scheduled for one fall and is for the WOOORRRRLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP!!!!!!!
( “An Island” by Chevelle hits, and Tyler Parker walks out in his ring gear still taping up his hands and he shakes off the nerves before heading down the ramp. )
Stew: This is it. It’s the final round between the World Heavyweight Champion, Mr. DEDEDE and this young man, Tyler Parker. It’s been one of the most competitive rivalries in Pro Wrestling history. Throughout the years we’ve seen many a great match competed between these men and it all culminates tonight.
HBG: Just what is going through Tyler Parker’s mind right now, Stew?
Stew: Honestly, his body language says it all. The implications of this match are written all over his face. But there seems to be a sense of knowing in that man’s eyes, as if he were waiting for this all of his life for this.
( Tyler warms up in the ring, shadow-boxing and loosening up as his music dies down )
( “Till I Collapse” by Eminem hits as Mr. DEDEDE comes out to the stage in a _#ThatsGod t-shirt, World Title belt around the waist and WHC crown on his head, sash with the Eye of Horus on and he sports a noticeable unkempt beard. He makes his way to the middle of the ramp until the Eye Of Horus shines at the center of the ramp and he does his taunt letting off fireworks into the sky. )
HBG: There’s nobody I’ve seen deliver on this stage quite like he has. I myself idolized him once and I was even jealous of Tyler for getting to train with DEDEDE back in AWF. I’ve watched this guy constantly change the business with his actions, and honestly, I don’t think a stage like this even rattles him anymore. He’s USED to this, he’s at home, and that’s a psychological advantage and then some!
Stew: You’re absolutely right. DEDEDE’s always had the psychological advantage, but there’s something different about tonight. You can tell this is like an adventure to him, because nobody, I repeat, NOBODY knows him in the ring and challenges him in this ring the way Tyler Parker does.
( DEDEDE stands across from Tyler in the ring, and rips his belt off his waist as he raises it along with the crown taunting to the crowd )
HBG: DEDEDE might disagree with you there. The man’s changed, you can hardly recognize him, and to him he’s a God and nobody’s a challenge. But Tyler Parker continues to grow as well and that’s what makes this SO exciting!
( DEDEDE’s music dies down and he hands his gold to the referee to raise to the crowd )
Ring Announcer: This championship bout is set for one fall to be contested under Elite Rules, and is for the WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP! Introducing first, in this corner, the CHALLENGER, from Syracuse, New York.. weighing in at 213 POOUNDSS…. “THE LIEGE OF LIGHT” … TYYYYYLEEERRRRRRRR PARRRKEERRRRRR!!!!!!!!
( Tyler crouches at his corner and hops in place, barely able to contain himself )
Ring Announcer: His opponent… from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, weighing in at 235 POOOOOUNNDSS… HE… Is the REIGNING and DEFENDING WOOOORRRRLLDDDDDDD HEAVVYYYWEIGHT CHAMPIOOOOOONNNNNN… MMMMMIISSTTTTEEEEEEEERRR DEEEEEEEE DEEEEEEEEE DEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!
( DEDEDE lifts his arms up taunting, and he tears his _#ThatsGod shirt off and both men are patted down by the referee. The ref informs both men of the rules and calls for the bell. )
( Ding! Ding! Ding! )
HBG: Here we go, Dynasty main event of the evening, World Heavyweight Championship on the line. The expectations for this match are through the roof.. the two of them are completely fresh, they’re two prize fighters in their absolute prime! I can’t tell you how special that is, so I won’t even try! Let’s sit back and enjoy this!
Stew: Tyler calls for a collar & elbow tie up, and DEDEDE grins at his opponent, approaches him and… extends his hand for a hand shake! Now when have you ever seen DEDEDE do that???
HBG: Never, and that speaks for itself the respect DEDEDE has for his former student.
( Tyler assesses, and firmly shakes DEDEDE’s hand )
Stew: SPOKE TOO SOON, DEDEDE YANKS HIM IN!! — TYLER DUCKS THE INCOMING RAINMAKER LARIAT AND COUNTERS FOR THE ACROSS THE PARK!!!!!!
HBG: NO WAY, DEDEDE ESCAPES THAT.. AND SLITHERS TO THE MAT WITH AN EXCITED GRIN ON HIS FACE! I guess this was a test, and clearly one that Tyler’s passed as DEDEDE laughs and flicks his tongue like a snake. Both men exchanging words and they get in to the lock up as they battle for strength.. DEDEDE takes Tyler to the corner, backing Tyler in but Tyler switches position and both men, both of these gladiators look to out-muscle each other in this packed house!
Stew: Tyler rolls himself and DDD to the mat, Tyler hand-stands on DDD’s shoulders, but DDD lifts the legs and presses them into Tyler’s midsection as Tyler backs up, runs the ropes, hops over DDD who flips to his front, TP ricochets off the otherside.. DROPKICK by DDD! No, TP swats the dropkick away and hits a roundhouse to DDD! NO, DDD catches the leg, springs up to his feet and hits the dragonscrew legwhip and immediately hits a handstand into a knee drop on to the leg! Tyler SHOUTS in pain, quickly DDD attempts a half crab, but Tyler rolls to his back and pushes DDD out with his free boot and quickly gets to this feet, but DDD comes right back with a CHOP BLOCK.
HBG: Tyler counters with a gator roll! Smart counter, and he gator rolls DDD up to his feet and attempts a standing vertical suplex, DEPRAVITY PERHAPS? No, DEDEDE stops the lift by hooking the leg. Tyler nails forearms to the face, and connects with several left hook body shots and right hook forearms! Spin kick by Parker to the midsection, and a BUZZSAW KICK FOR THE ROAD! — DEDEDE ducks, SUPERKICK BY DDD! — Tyler side-steps, STANDING PELE KICK TO DDD! — DEDEDE MOVES OUT OF THE WAY AND CATCHES THE LEG IN MIDAIR LOCKING IN A HALF CRAB ON TYLER! In a SPLIT SECOND DDD is able to single out that body part he attacked earlier!
Stew: However Tyler’s extremely close to the ropes, and DDD’s got a one-legged liontamber which isn’t enough weight on Tyler’s back, therefore TP claws himself to the ropes. DDD converts the hold to a BROCK LOCK, wrenching that leg around the back of his neck! The referee’s trying to get DDD off, but he refuses!
Ref: 1! 2! 3! 4!
Stew: DDD gets off and RIPS Tyler away from the ropes, dragging him by his leg, but TP yanks DDD in and manages to find a small package pin!
Ref: OOOONEE!! TWOOO!
Stew: No chance, DDD kicks out and both men quickly rise… Parker snatches the arm and hits an arm wrench into a knee to the gut. Parker hits the ARM-BREAKER ON THAT WRENCHED ARM, HARSH move. TP loosens up and wrenches that arm again and hits shoot kicks to the chest, backs up and goes for a kick to the face! But DDD ducks the kick and counters with a roll up!
Ref: OOOONE! TWOOOOO!
Stew: Parker traps the arm, attempting a CROSSFACE! But DDD rolls through and Tyler releases, they both rush at each other.. TYLER TUCKS DDD’S HEAD IN FOR THE ACROSS THE PARK PERHAPS! No, DDD gracefully escapes and counters by snatching the left leg of Tyler Parker and hitting ANOTHER Dragonscrew followed by a knee drop! And DEDEDE quickly follows it up with a one-legged variation of the Muta Lock! Great hold DDD’s applied there! But Tyler rakes the eyes of DEDEDE it seems like and the ref admonishes him for it, but Tyler snaps in a grounded side headlock.. DEDEDE rushes to his feet, basic wrestling strategy in this predicament, you always rush to your feet when you can and DDD hits elbows to the ribs.. followed by a LOUD SLAP TO THE FACE OF TYLER PARKER! AND TYLER LIVIDLY RESPONDS WITH A MASSIVE SLAP, BUT DEDEDE DUCKS IT AND HITS A ROLLING BACKHAND TO PARKER! BOTH SLAPS COULD BE HEARD THROUGH OUT THE ARENA! Tyler stunned… and out of rage he CHARGES WITH A CLOTHESLINE but DEDEDE ducks, they face, BIG BOOT SENDING TYLER CRASHING ONTO THE BACK OF HIS HEAD! …. AND TYLER ROLLS OUT OF THE RING HOLDING HIS HEAD, AND BANGS HIS FIST ON THE APRON!
HBG: Tyler needs to STAY CALM, DEDEDE’s just trying to piss him off! If frustration sets in now imagine when the heat starts to rise!
Stew: DEDEDE swings his legs through the ropes with the baseball slide! But Tyler dodges that and drags DEDEDE out as he sends DDD SPINE-FIRST into the barricade, and begins teeing off on the World Heavyweight Champion with a FEROCIOUS assault of right’s and lefts! DDD trying to guard as well as he can, and Tyler takes DDD to the ringpost sending him HEAD FIRST — no, DDD stops himself and hits several right hands sending Tyler stumbling back.. and DEDEDE grabs Tyler but Tyler DRIVES DDD spine-first into the ring post! Tyler backs up as DDD is reeling, still standing and staggers forward… RUNNING DROPKICK SENDS DEDEDE CRASHING INTO THE RINGPOST!
Ref: 3!!! …… 4!!! ………. 5!!!!
HBG: DDD collapses after hitting that metal SO hard, that’s certainly got to hurt. Tyler rolls in and out of the ring to break the count of the referee and he pulls DEDEDE up and sends him HARD AS HE CAN into the barricade with an irish whip. Tyler backs up now and sprints towards DEDEDE for ANOTHER RUNNING DROPKICK SENDING BOTH MEN INTO THE CROWD! Two PERFECTLY executed dropkicks hit with authority! The ref leaves the ring to try to get the competitors to take the match back into the ring. Tyler’s back up to his feet and DEDEDE is still reeling, trying to get back into it as he rises… TYLER SPRINGS ONTO THE BARRICADE AND LEAPS OFF WITH THE FINAL CHAPTER!!! … BUT DEDEDE DODGES AND TYLER NAILS A SECURITY GUARD WITH THAT SPRINGBOARD ROUNDHOUSE INSTEAD! NOW DEDEDE GRABS TYLER FROM BEHIND AND GERMAN SUPLEXES HIM OVER THE ‘CADE, AT RINGSIDE!
Stew: Tyler rolling around on the ringside floor taking that impressive release german suplex from the World Champion. DDD grabs his opponent and rolls him in the ring, taking the match back into the ring as DEDEDE pulls Tyler up and sends him running RIGHT into the corner with a hard irish whip, and follows up with a SENTON IN THE CORNER! Risky move by the champ, and he drags TP away from the ropes for the hook of the leg!
Ref: OOOOONEE!! TWOOOOOOO..
HBG: TP kicks out! DEDEDE plots his next move, looking at his opponent for a second and he stands over him, dragging up from the ground, smacking him on the head aggressively… and QUICKLY DDD GOES FOR THE DIAMOND CUTTER!!!! But Tyler snatches DEDEDE’s arms and HOISTS HIM UP FOR THE CRUCIFIX LIFT…. PERHAPS GOING FOR THE ON THE CROSS… But TP doesn’t have enough, DDD frees himself and gets the sunset flip pin!… but Tyler rolls back and out of the pin with momentum and hits a BOOT TO THE JAW! That was LOUD! TP collapses on the middle rope and DDD rolls away holding his mouth, probably bloodied and Parker loosens up some pain on his leg. TP sprints across the ring to the ropes nearby, springs and goes for the FINAL CHAPTER AGAIN … but DDD jumps up and pummels Tyler’s spine before he leaps off, sending Tyler front-flipping out of the ring!
Stew: Wait a second, Tyler manages to hang on the bottom rope, and he quickly SKINS THE CAT, GETTING AN UPSIDE DOWN HEAD-SCISSORS ON DEDEDE… AND TAKING HIM OUT OF THE RING!!
HBG: DEDEDE rolls around at ringside looking to get up as quickly as possible. Tyler see’s DEDEDE back on his feet recovering and TP sprints on to the apron and hits the SPRINGBOARD MOONSAULT TAKING DEDEDE DOWN! Highly effective move, if I do say so myself!
Ref: 1!! …… 2!!! ….
Stew: Agreed, it was the right big move to take the champ down momentarily. Tyler quickly drags DEDEDE up and drags him into the ring, rolls himself in and picks his spot… now TYLER GOING FOR THE LIONSAULT!!! SHADES OF Y2IMPACT! SPRINGBOARD MOONSAULT CONNEC— DEDEDE LIFTS THE KNEES! Tyler TRIED to counter in midair and land on his feet but he’s still hunched over, those knees definitely connected and DDD springs up for the DEDEDE DDT! — No, Tyler manages to transition behind DEDEDE and go for the GERMAN SUPLEX! … But DEDEDE responds with harsh elbows to the midsection and spins around for the DEDEDE DDT AGAIN!! ….. EXECUTES! AND THE HOOK OF THE LEG!
Ref: OOOOONEEE!! TWOOOOOOOOO!!!
HBG: TYLER PARKER KICKS OUT! Look at how brilliantly DDD escapes these moves, how he gracefully spins into the DEDEDE DDT, he’s absolutely in his zone right now… and it shows as DEDEDE CREEPS BACK INTO THE CORNER AND IS CROUCHED OVER… WE’VE SEEN THIS MOVE SPELL THE END FOR MANY MATCHES BEFORE, AND THIS COULD BE THE CASE NOW… TYLER’S UP, DEDEDE TAKES OFF!! … TYLER JUMPS OVER HIS OPPONENT, SPRINGS OFF THE ROPES AND NAILS THE FINAL CHAPTER!! BOOT SMACKING OFF THE SKULL OF MR. DEDEDE NOW!!!
Stew: WHAT A REACTION! DEDEDE’s been thrown for a loop but he’s not even thrown off his feet… but Tyler GRABS DDD, REAR WAISTLOCK, AND GERMAN RELEASE SUPLEX INTO THE CORNER! This gives Tyler time to get himself together as Tyler backs away, going to the opposite corner…. and would you look at this? Tyler seems to be setting up for his OWN spear! And Tyler springs across the ring to hit a SPEAR INTO THE CORNER!!! …. BUT DEDEDE GETS A ROPE AIDED BACKFLIP TO THE TOP ROPE!! … TYLER averts disaster and stops himself from hitting the corner, and DDD sends punches at Tyler.. BUT TYLER HITS A HUUUUUUUGE SLAP KNOCKING THE TASTE OUT OF DEDEDE’S MOUTH! Now Tyler SPRINGS UP FROM THE FLOOR TO THE TOP ROPE AND HITS THE FRANKENSTEINER OFF THE TOP, SENDING DDD CRASHING SPINE FIRST, AND TYLER HOOKS A LEG!
Ref: OOOOONEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOO!!!! ….
HBG: KICK OUT! DEDEDE again rolls to the ropes, holding his spine and you can see his face turning tomato red from that slap! Tyler refuses to rest however and heads towards DEDEDE and delivers harsh stomps all over the body of his adversary! The ref’s trying to back Tyler away, but Tyler SHOVES the ref away and delivers right hands being faintly guarded by DDD! The ref’s had enough!
Ref: 1!! 2!!! 3!! 4!! THAT’S ENOUGH!
HBG: DEDEDE SURGES OUT OF THE ROPES AND DRIVES TYLER AND THE REF INTO THE CORNER, AS DEDEDE COUNTERS WITH BODY SHOTS! DDD backs up now and hits a SPEAR!!!! RIGHT INTO THE CORNER!!! BUT TYLER EVASIVE-ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY AND THE REFEREE GETS SPEARED, AND TAKEN DOWN AND OUT AS HE LAYS SLUMP IN THE CORNER! That was brutal, the official is definitely out of commission and TYLER DRAGS DDD OUT WITH A REVERSE FRONT-FACELOCK, ACROSS THE PARK TIME!!!!!!!!!! IT CONNECTS!!!!!!! — NO, DDD SPINS OUT OF IT AND IS GOING FOR A LOW BLOW, BUT TYLER SIDE-STEPS JUST IN TIME AND HITS A LOW ROUNDHOUSE!! THE CHAMP’S WOOZY! TP DRAGS DEDEDE UP TO HIS FEET AND HITS THE DEPRAVITY!!!!!!! VERTICAL SUPLEX INTO A NECKBREAKER!!!
Stew: OH MY GOODNESS, IN MID-AIR DEDEDE CORKSCREWS AND LANDS ON HIS FEET BEHIND TYLER FOR THE NECKBREAKER! BUT TYLER TURNS AROUND AND SHOVES DDD IN TO THE ROPES AND HITS THE ROLLING RELEASE GERMAN SUPLEX!! … BUT DEDEDE CATCHES HIMSELF BEFORE LANDING WITH A BACK HANDSPRING WHILE TYLER SHOOTS TO HIS FEET! TYLER’S UNAWARE, AND DEDEDE HITS THE SIDE KICK TO THE FACE!!! ….
HBG: HOLY HELL, TYLER DUCKS THAT AND BOTH MEN RUN THE ROPES, AND THEIR BODIES COLLIDE AS THEY GO FOR A CLOTHESLINE! EVERYONE IN THE RING IS LAID OUT!
Stew: These men know each other’s moves SO WELL! This is SEVEN PLUS YEARS of history, of training, of sparring, of teaching and learning from each other, seven years of being enemies and allies and it all comes down to THIS! These two were born to wrestle each other!!!
( After a moment, DDD and TP drag themselves up )
Stew: TYLER with a right hand! DEDEDE with a right! Both of these gladiators exchange slow, calculated rights… TYLER with a right! DEDEDE with a BACK-FIST, TYLER WITH A LEFT! DEDEDE dazed.. TYLER WITH THE LARIAT, DEDEDE DUCKS, DEDEDE WITH THE BACK-FIST, TYLER DUCKS, TYLER WITH A RIGHT! ANOTHER ONE, ANOTHER JAB, TYLER WITH A KICK TO THE SIDE, DDD CATCHES THE LEG, TYLER HITS A SPIT KNOCKING ROLLING ELBOW AND DROPS HIS OPPONENT, THE COVER!
( The referee is still down, and Tyler notices this )
HBG: The ref’s still out, they’re gonna need to send out a new one right now, jeezus that should’ve been taken care of ages ago! What kind of company is Crash running?? Tyler pulls DDD up nonetheless… and DEDEDE CLAWS RIGHT INTO TYLER’S EYES, GOUGING HIS EYES AND DEDEDE TAKES TYLER TO THE CORNER WITH THE CLAW OF THE EYES! TP PUNCHES DDD SEVERAL TIMES IN THE NOSE AS DDD’S FACE GETS BUSTED OPEN! TP holds his face, temporarily blinded by that desperate move from the World Champion and DEDEDE shakes off some combat damage and charges at Tyler hitting several punches to the face! DDD takes his man out of the corner and whips him to the ropes, but Tyler reverses the whip …. DEDEDE reverses the reverse and sends him into the opposite ropes as Tyler rebounds and DEDEDE HITS THE KITCHEN SINK KNEE TO THE GUT! TP front-flips from that and lands right on his bottom as DEDEDE runs the ropes and hits the PENALTY KICK, KNOCKING TYLER’S LIGHTS OUT!!
Stew: He kicked him so hard he could’ve broken his damn shin bone! Hell, he just might have, because DDD’s limping back up and is trying to shake off that DEVASTATING kick but now he heads towards the corner and climbs all the way up to the top rope!
HBG: IT’S GETTING REAL NOW, DEDEDE SLOWLY BUT SURELY GETS HIMSELF TO THE TOP AND IS PERCHED UP THERE!!
Stew: But look at Parker, Parker somehow comes to and immediately rushes himself up to his feet and rushes to the corner! You’ve got to love the will of this guy! DEDEDE sending punches, but Tyler is sending his own! Tyler will stop at nothing now, he’s climbing up that turnbuckle again and he’s already sent DDD off the top with a frankensteiner once! Now they’re both standing on the top turnbuckle, battling it out at the top of the world before this capacity crowd with the greatest prize in all of Sports on the line, the World Heavyweight Championship! Back and forth they go, but Tyler hits punches to the mid-section and hooks DEDEDE UP… VERTICAL LIFT…. LOOK, AND HE DROPS DDD GROIN-FIRST INTO THE MIDDLE OF THE RING ROPES!! NOW TYLER LEAPS OFF THE TOP FOR THE BUSAIKU KNEE OFF THE TOP ROPE, CLEANING DEDEDE’S CLOCK AND SENDING HIM CRASHING INTO THE RING APRON!!!
HBG: INCREDIBLE FLYING KNEE! NICE ONE BY TYLER PARKER! Parker’s in the ring on all fours and DEDEDE’s on the apron looking mangled, caught up on the ropes after being hit with that knee! Parker, after a short moment of breath shoots towards DEDEDE and drags him off the apron and into the ring, HOOKS HIM AND HITS THE ACROSS THE PARK!!!! BUT AGAIN! AGAIN! DEDEDE FINDS A WAY TO ESCAPE IT AND HITS A LOW BLOW FROM BEHIND!!!!!! AND DEDEDE ROLLS OUT OF THE RING TO RECOVER! I’M CONVINCED, TYLER PARKER CAN’T HIT THE ACROSS THE PARK ON MR. DEDEDE!!!!!! This had to be his FOURTH TIME trying that move and DDD’s had an answer every time!
Stew: You may be right, but I think you’re ignoring something here; DDD’s gone to some desperate measures in this match. Why, you might ask? Because desperate times may just call for that. DEDEDE is in survival mode right now and that’s him at his most dangerous, but he’s there for a reason, and it’s because Tyler Parker is bringing EVERYTHING into this! The ref has just come to, he’s checking on Parker but he completely missed that low blow. Meanwhile DDD is slithering around ring side, picking his spot while Tyler Parker recovers from that low blow. After a short moment, TP’s making his way up but he has no idea where DDD is. TP slowly looking around with limited view, you can see blood trickling from one of his eyes damn it. He’s hurt, tired, groggy and partially blinded… and DDD SLIDES IN FROM BEHIND AND CHARGES FOR A SPEAR!!!
HBG: TYLER CARTWHEELS, I SAID CARTWHEELS OUT OF IT AND SPRINTS TO THE ROPES! TYLER PARKER OFF THE MIDDLE ROPE AGAIN! ANOTHER FINAL CHAPT—- SPPPEEEAAAARRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! MR DEDEDE SPEARING TYLER PARKER OUT OF MID-AIR!!!! TYLER PARKER FALLS, DEDEDE COVERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Ref: OOOOOOONEEEEEEEEEE!!!! ….. TWOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! ….. THRRRRRRRRRE…
Stew: KICK OUT!!! YOU’VE GOTTA BE KIDDING ME!! THE SAME SEQUENCE THAT TOOK TYLER PARKER OUT AT ROAD TO REDEMPTION, HE NOW SURVIVES HERE TONIGHT!
HBG: DEDEDE looks genuinely, genuinely shocked! DEDEDE rolls away, looking off into space almost as if he’s trying to find an answer…. and he turns back at Tyler Parker with a DEVIOUS look on his face. He’s got Tyler away from the ropes… AND THERE’S THE METH LOCK! THE METH LOCK LOCKED IN, IT’S FULLY EXECUTED, AND TYLER PARKER HAS ABSOLUTELY NOWHERE TO GO! TYLER IMMEDIATELY CONSIDERING TAPPING, TYLER WITH HIS HANDS WAVING, HE KNOWS HE’S REACHED THE ABSOLUTE BRINK! TYLER PARKER IS STARING INTO THE FACE OF DEFEAT AND IT IS CALLING HIS NAME! ALL HE HAS TO DO IS TAP, THAT’S IT, AND IT’S OVER!
Stew: DEDEDE’S SCREAMING, GRUNTING, YANKING AS MUCH AS HE CAN, TYLER’S NECK LITERALLY LOOKS OUT OF SHAPE, IT’S NOT SUPPOSED TO BEND THAT WAY, AND THE REF’S LOOKING TO SEE IF TP’S STILL EVEN CONSCIOUS…… AND TYLER NOW GRABS DEDEDE BY THE HAIR AND YANKS AT IT, ALMOST LIKE HE’S CLINGING TO THIS MATCH BY IT! TYLER TRYING TO RIP HIMSELF OUT OF THE METH LOCK WITH SOME OTHERWORLDLY HERCULEAN STRENGTH AND RESILIENCE! TYLER…. TYLER…. HE DOES!! HE ESCAPES THE METH LOCK WITH HIS DAMN BARE HANDS, AND HE POUNDS HIS HEAD INTO DDD’S WITH HEADBUTTS, OPENING HIMSELF UP AND OPENING DDD’S HEAD UP IN THE PROCESS!
HBG: JESUS CHRIST, TYLER WON’T STOP, MORE AND MORE HEADBUTT’S! DEDEDE REPLYING WITH RIB-CRUSHING BODY SHOTS, YOU CAN SEE THE WELTS ON TYLER’S TORSO, BUT TYLER REFUSES TO STOP, TYLER’S CAUGHT A SECOND WIND AND HE DRAGS DEDEDE UP AND PRESSES HIM INTO THE ROPES AS HE HITS NONSTOP HEADBUTTS! THE REF TRYING TO GET IN THE WAY, BUT TYLER DRAGS DDD TO THE CORNER AND HITS MORE AND MORE HEADBUTTS!
Stew: DEAR GOD, WHERE’S THIS COMING FROM!? WHAT AN UNCANNY DISPLAY! DDD somehow momentarily stuns Tyler with big knees to the midsection, but Tyler comes RIGHT BACK FOR DDD WITH MORE HEADBUTTS AS DDD’S FACE IS NOW A CRIMSON MASK! DDD LEANED BACK ON THE CORNER, AND TYLER BACKS UP AND HITS A RUNNING CORNER CLOTHESLINE!! LOUD DECAPITATING CLOTHESLINE! … TYLER BACKS UP… ANOTHER CORNER CLOTHESLINE, AND DDD COLLAPSES, BUT TYLER YANKS HIM BACK UP AND HITS A CORNER LARIAT! ANOTHER LARIAT! THREE! FOUR! FIVE CORNER LARIATS! TYLER PARKER EXPLODING WITH RAGE AS HE BRINGS DEDEDE TO THE CORNER… BACKS UP…. RUNNING CLOTHESLINE KNOCKING DDD’S HEAD DAMN NEAR OFF!!! DDD TURNED INSIDE OUT BY THAT CLOTHESLINE!
Stew: Now Tyler drags DEDEDE OUT OF THE CORNER AND BRINGS HIM IN…… ACROSS THE PARK!!!!!!!!!!!! ….. DEAR GOD NO, DEDEDE ESCAPES IT AGAIN!!!! HOW!?!??!?!?! DEDEDE RUNS THE ROPES… SPEEEEEEEEEEARRRRRR!!!!!!!! ……. NO!!! TYLER CATCHES DDD WITH THE FRONT FACELOCK, GATOR ROLLS TO HIS FEET, ACROSS THE PARK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! IT CONNECTS, DEDEDE’S FACE DRILLED INTO THE MAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
( The referee slides down for the cover, but Tyler stands over DDD with an enraged expression on his face )
Tyler: GET UP!!!!!!
HBG: TYLER’S NOT GOING FOR THE COVER, WHAT’S THE MEANING OF THIS? HE COULD WIN THIS RIGHT NOW!
Tyler: I SAID GET UP!!!!!!!
Stew: Tyler’s demanding DEDEDE gets up, and DDD’ already trying to push himself up but cant even get off of all fours! He’s curled over, holding his head and TYLER SNATCHES HIM BACK UP AGAIN!! ANOTHER ACROSS THE PARK!!!!!
( Tyler immediately gets back up and stands over DEDEDE, screaming )
Tyler: GET UP!!!!! GET THE FUCK UP!!!!!!!
HBG: WHAT THE HELL’S THE MATTER WITH THIS GUY?? TYLER GRABS DDD AGAIN AND HITS A THIRD ACROSS THE PARK!!!!!!! OH MY LORD!
Tyler: GET THE FUCK UP DEDEDE!!! GET UP RIGHT FUCKING NOW!!!!!!
( DEDEDE reaches out one hand as it grabs the ankle of Tyler Parker’s boot, and Tyler stomps on that hand while the ref pleads for him to stop )
Stew: TYLER’S ABSOLUTELY SNAPPED, HE GRABS A LIFELESS DDD AGAIN AND HITS THE ACROSS THE PARK AGAIN!!!! THIS IS TOO MUCH, WAY TOO MUCH!!!! TYLER PARKER PICKS DEDEDE BACK UP, AND HITS THE 5TH CONSECUTIVE ACROSS THE PARK DRILLING DEDEDE INTO THE MAT!!! AND TYLER PICKS DEDEDE BACK UP FOR ANOTHER ACROSS THE–
( The referee manhandles Tyler away from DEDEDE and calls for the bell )
( Ding! Ding! Ding! )
Ring Announcer: Ladies and Gentlemen… the referee has deemed this match unfit to continue!
( The referee calls for the WHC belt and crown, and Tyler Parker sits in the corner of the ring staring at his blood-stained hands )
Ring Announcer: Here is your winner by Technical Knockout…. and the NEEEEEEEEEEEEEWWWWWWW WOOOORRRRRRLLDD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIOOOOOOON!!!!! … TTYYYYYLLEEEEEEERRRR PAAARRKEEEEEEEEERRR!!!!
( “An Island” by Chevelle hits as the referee hands a stoic Tyler Parker the World Heavyweight Title belt )
Stew: THE RAGE OF TYLER PARKER HAS WON HIM HIS 2ND WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP! AND THANKFULLY, IT’S OVER!
HBG: Thank God.
Stew: WHAT AN EXPLOSION! Tyler Parker dragged something out of him that I don’t think even he has ever seen before, and it has taken him back to the World Heavyweight Championship that he won just a year ago! This is unlike ANY World title win I’ve ever seen in my time here in EAW!!
( Officials come to the aide of an unconscious Mr. DEDEDE, and Tyler Parker struggles to his feet. He stares at his newly won gold and raises it for all to see )
HBG: These rivals had absolutely everything well scouted! They had every INCH of each others game mapped out to the very tee! But NO ONE expected that outburst of violence and, as you said RAGE to be the deciding factor!
Stew: I don’t think I’ll ever forget that ending. The historic reign of Mr. DEDEDE that went a week shy of 7 months comes to an end at the hands of Tyler Parker! The paradigm has now shifted, this win from Tyler Parker has changed EVERYTHING!
( Tyler offers his help, but the officials force Tyler to stay away and Tyler leaves the ring gingerly, looking into the face of the World title and repeatedly glances back at the carcass of Mr. DEDEDE in the ring, as he reluctantly limps up the ramp )
( Camera pars off course, finally fading away from the ring. A highlight package ensues, showcasing the recent events on Showdown. The highlights entail Ventura playing tricks on the entire Showdown roster – notably Clark Duncan, Nick Angel and Evan Stark… )
( The camera pans back to the ring towards the entrance ramp, where we find men dressed clad in holy robes, adorn with a strange sigil, as they are standing in a line on the stage, chanting.)
“…Caster, Oh, Caster…
…Deliver this dream…
…Caster, Oh, Caster…
…Deliver it, upon me.” )
(All of the sudden, Ventura makes his arrival as he slowly walks from the back into the center of the line, as one of the followers brings a microphone unto him as he pats the man on the head as he motions for him to return to his post.)
Ventura: Children of the benevolent Caster of Dreams, I know what is troubling your mind and what is pacing through it so quickly. Why is this man here? What is his purpose? I am going to simply deliver my message unto your meager souls and let what I want to be known… be known. Now tonight, I cannot be the one deemed to wear the crown of elitism and reign above you as your King of Elite, because of a man that claims himself Prince of Showdown, but that does not degrade the stature of what I truly am: The King of the Brigades.
(Ventura removes the shades from his face as he folds them and places them inside his jacket and he looks up to show a look of resolute meaning.)
Ventura: I shall ask the entire roster to heed this warning that I shall speak upon you, a warning that shall be beneficial to those who shall hold and destructive to those who shall scoff towards it. The Holy Brigades are dawning and the hour is at hand for their arrival. Soon, whether you shall pledge your fealty to me as the King of the Brigades or if you shall mark me as another commoner, when they arrive, your opinion towards me shall not matter. For soon… the Brigades shall reign over all. It is not a matter of believing, but seeing and you shall see what I desire all of you, the huddled masses, to see as EAW has always been my casted dream. The severity in the truth of the matter is that you are all simply afforded the opportunity to live in it… and shall continue to do so.
(As the followers continue to chant, Ventura makes his walk back to wherever he came from as he goes back behind the stage, as he leaves many questions in the minds of the people and even the commentators.)
(Video package plays; recapping Cameron Ella Ava and Tarah Nova’s rivalry over the Hall Of Fame Championship)
(Camera cuts back to the O.A.K.A. Stadium where Cameron Ella Ava’s Hall Of Fame Championship and Tarah Nova’s custom-made Hall Of Fame Championship replica are hung above the ring and ladders have been strategically placed all around the ring and up the ramp)
Announcer: The following contest is a LADDER MATCH…. And is for the ELITE ANSWERS WRESTLING HALL OF FAME CHAMPIONSHIIIPPP….
(“Boss’s Daughter” by Pop Evil plays all throughout the stadium as a confident Tarah Nova makes her way out to the stage dressed in purple and black attire; happily stepping under every ladder in her path as she makes her way towards the ring)
Announcer: First, the challenger!…. Making her way to the ring… From Detroit, Michigan!…. Weighing in at 119 pounds!…. SHE IS “THE VIXEN KILLER”…. TARAH NOOOOOOOVVVVVVVVVAAAAAAAAA!!!….
Mercer: Tarah showing absolutely no fear as she makes her way to the ring for the biggest match up of her career! No fear of superstition and no fear of her opponent either. Tarah’s proven time and time again why she’s the new face of the Vixens Division, and tonight, she cements that by ending the career and the reign of what many consider the greatest Vixen of all time!
(“Rumors” by Lindsay Lohan plays all throughout the stadium as a determined Cameron Ella Ava makes her way out to the stage in red and blue attire)
Announcer: And her opponent!…. Making her way to the ring…. From Los Angeles, California!…. Weighing in at 127 pounds!…. SHE IS THE REIGNING AND DEFENDING EAW HALL OF FAME CHAMPION…. CAMERON! ELLA!! AAAAAAAVVVVVVVVVAAAAAAAAA–
Kawajai: AND CAMERON’S WALK TURNS INTO A SPRINT AS SHE MAKES HER WAY TOWARDS THE RING! Tarah rushes forward and slips through the ropes and to the outside as Cameron slides in! Tarah wasting no time picking up a nearby ladder to arm herself for what is sure to be a brutal contest! CAMERON COMES CHARGING ONCE MORE! SHE JUMPS THE ROPES AND CRASHES RIGHT INTO TARAH NOVA AND THAT LADDER! No love lost whatsoever between these two Vixens! No punches even remotely being held! Cameron’s already sacrificing her body just to gain the upperhand as she rolls in pain from nailing that ladder of Tarah’s, but at least she took Tarah down with her! Both women now in a race to get to their feet… Cameron’s up first–Tarah picks that ladder back up and drives it into the ribs of Cameron! Tarah back up to her feet as she puts that ladder around the head of Cameron..
Mercer: And a big dropkick connects into that ladder, taking Cameron with it as they crash down onto the mat! Tarah’s hurt, but she looks ready to end this contest as soon as possible as she picks that ladder back up and makes her way back to the ring… Cameron climbing back to her feet as Tarah slides in with that ladder–Cameron reaches through the ropes and pulls the ladder towards her! Both women in a tug-o-war for this ladder! Tarah SHOVES it forward and right into the sternum of Cameron! CAMERON COMES RIGHT BACK WITH A DROPKICK INTO THE LADDER THAT SENDS IT INTO TARAH’S GUT! Tarah nearly doubling over in pain as Cameron seems to be looking for something… SHE CHARGES AND RUNS OFF THE STEEL STEPS! SHE LANDS ON THE HALF OF THE LADDER HANGING OUT OF THE ROPES TO SEND THE OTHER HALF RIGHT UPSIDE THE JAW OF TARAH IN THE RING! Cameron rolls back into the ring as the Referee calls for the bell to officially start this!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Kawajai: This contest is OFFICIALLY underway here as Cameron seems to be the one in control as she gets back to her feet and pulls that ladder all the way into the ring and you can bet she’s gonna put it to good use… Cameron doesn’t even glance at the two Championships hanging above her for someone to take and instead stares down at her opponent with more contempt than I’ve ever seen in someone’s eyes before! Tarah’s hurt, but still going as she looks to climb back to her feet.. CAMERON DRIVES THE TOP OF THE LADDER INTO THE SPINE OF TARAH! AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN! Cameron just dropping the ladder and letting it fall across the back of Tarah’s skull! Cameron lays the ladder flat on the canvas and drags Tarah back up to her feet, clutching her hair in her fist… Cameron scoops her up! And she SLAMS Tarah down right onto the ladder! Tarah cringing in pain! Cameron doesn’t look satisfied just yet as she drops down and rolls to the outside… She picks up a second ladder and slides it into the ring! Cameron’s got nothing but bad intentions her as she slides back in and picks up that second ladder and lays this on on TOP of Tarah…
Mercer: Cameron goes charging into the ropes! CARTWHEEL INTO A STANDING MOONSAULT RIGHT ONTO TARAH–TARAH PUTS HER KNEES UP AND ALLOWS CAMERON TO TAKE ALL THE DAMAGE OFF OF THAT LADDER! Cameron’s writhing in pain as Tarah may have found a chance to turn this contest back into her favor! Tarah’s visibly in pain, but she knows she has to do something quick to turn the tide as she picks up that second ladder Cameron brought in and climbs back to her feet as quickly as she can! Cameron’s not far behind her though.. Both women up! TARAH LAUNCHES THAT LADDER AS IT CRACKS OFF THE SKULL OF CAMERON! Cameron goes stumbling backwards into the ropes! Tarah gets a better grip on that ladder AND CHARGES! Cameron ducks as the incoming blow from Tarah misses and the ladder in her hands goes flying to the outside!
Kawajai: Tarah quickly turns around–GODDESS’ TOUCH!!!! NO–TARAH DUCKS IT! Tarah ducked her head and immediately deadlifts Cameron from behind with a waistlock! Cameron’s fighting it! TARAH WITH A DEADLIFT GERMAN SUPLEX RIGHT ONTO THE REMAINING LADDER IN THE RING!! She may have just broken the neck of Cameron! Tarah climbs back up to her feet as Cameron’s left folded up like an accordion! Tarah pushes Cameron’s motionless body off of the ladder and picks it up! She could be looking to win this right here and now! Tarah’s got her eyes locked on those two shimmering Championships overhead and all she has to do is climb up and pull them down! Tarah setting up the ladder in the middle of the ring as quickly as she can and starts her ascent! Cameron’s moving, but she may not be up in time to stop this! Tarah continues her climb as she makes her way closer and closer! Cameron’s gotta do something! CAMERON STUMBLES TO HER FEET AND INTO THE LADDER AS IT SHAKES! Tarah realizes she’s in trouble!
Mercer: Tarah’s trying to swing for the head of a dazed Cameron, but she’s too high up! CAMERON FORCES THE LADDER OVER AS TARAH GOES TUMBLING DOWN! TARAH MANAGES TO CATCH HERSELF ON THE TOP ROPE! Incredible balance from the challenger! SUPERNOVA!!! TARAH SPRINGBOARDING OFF THAT TOP ROPE AND ONTO CAMERON WITH A BEAUTIFUL MOONSAULT!!! Both women are down and out, but Tarah may still very well be in control! Both Vixens are moving, but Tarah’s much quicker to get back up to a vertical base as she no longer has her eyes on those Titles, but on her opponent… Tarah grabs the ladder and folds it back up and DRIVES it into the ribs of Cameron! Tarah with bloodlust brimming in her eyes as she just squeezes the life out of Cameron with that ladder in her ribs! Tarah stops the attack and places the ladder in the nearest corner… Tarah pulls Cameron back up to her feet by her hair as she looks for something big.. IRISH WHIP INTO THAT LADDER! CAMERON COUNTERS INTO AN IRISH WHIP OF HER OWN!
Kawajai: Amazing athleticism from Tarah as she stops herself from colliding with the ladder and jumps onto it! CAMERON CHARGES! Tarah with a backflip off the ladder as she lands on her feet behind Cameron! Cameron stops herself from crashing into the ladder and spins around–DEADLY DREAMS!!! That signature superkick of Tarah connects emphatically as Cameron’s send stumbling backwards into that ladder! TARAH’S NOT DONE AS SHE RUSHES FORWARD WITH A BIG FOREARM SMASH OFF THE FACE OF CAMERON! TARAH JUST LAYING INTO CAMERON WITH FOREARMS OFF THE FACE! Tarah’s got a deranged look in her eyes as she rushes into the adjacent corner! SHE COMES CHARGING WITH A FULL HEAD OF STEAM!! STINGER SPLASH!! CAMERON GRABS THE LADDER AND CHUCKS IT AS IT NAILS TARAH IN MID-MOVE!! Both competitors are hurt, both are already exhausted! Tarah may have just lost her control over this, but Cameron looks equally in dire straits… Cameron remains waiting in that corner as Tarah pushes herself back up to her feet… Cameron climbs up to the second turnbuckle…
Mercer: SHE LEAPS ONTO TARAH FOR A TORNADO DDT ONTO THAT LADDER!!! TARAH’S FIGHTING IT! SHE DOESN’T LET IT CONNECT AS SHE FORCES THEM BOTH INTO THE ROPES! TARAH MANAGES TO OVERPOWER CAMERON AS SHE DUMPS HER OVER THE TOP ROPE AND SENDS HER CRASHING TO THE OUTSIDE! Tarah may still have control! Cameron’s still hurt, but she’s using the ring apron on the outside to pull herself back up as Tarah looks to get back to her feet in the ring… TARAH CHARGES AS SHE GETS UP AND NAILS CAMERON WITH A BIG BASEBALL SLIDE! Cameron goes crashing into the barricade and the ladders set up against it! Tarah doesn’t look like she’s finished with Cameron just yet! She’s got something big in mind as she stalks the Champion… Tarah charges off the ropes as Cameron’s up! HERE SHE COMES–SUICIDE DIVE!!! CAMERON PICKS UP THAT LADDER AND STOPS TARAH DEAD IN HER TRACKS WITH A SHOT TO THE FACE!! Tarah’s left hanging halfway out of the ring against that ladder! CAMERON RUNS UP THE LADDER! GODDESS’ TOUCH!!!!
Kawajai: THE GODDESS’ TOUCH IS SUCCESSFUL AS TARAH DROPS BACK ONTO THE CANVAS!! SHE COULD BE OUT! CAMERON MAY HAVE THIS WON! Cameron picks up that ladder she just used to aid her as she… She seems to be placing one end on the barricade and the other on the apron to make a bridge out of it! Cameron doesn’t seem like she’s going for the victory just yet! Cameron rolls back into the ring with her target in sight as she grabs a hold of Tarah and starts dragging her back up… Hold on–Tarah seems to be resisting! She’s trying to force off Cameron! Cameron replies with a knee right into the gut of her opponent! Cameron continues with navigating Tarah over to where she wants her, but Tarah resists once more as she’s successful in forcing Cameron off! Cameron stumbles into the ropes and comes back with momentum as Tarah is up! DEADLY DREAMS!!! No–The superkick is no good this time around as Cameron catches the foot of Tarah! Cameron swats the foot away–BUT TARAH COMES BACK AROUND WITH AN ENZUIGIRI OFF THE HEAD OF CAMERON OUT OF NOWHERE! Cameron’s looking dazed!

A BIG BOOT CONNECTS AS CAMERON GOES BACKPEDALING! TARAH CHARGES AFTER HER! CORNER CLOTHESLINE CONNECTS! Tarah’s not finished yet as she picks Cameron up and places her on that top turnbuckle! I can only imagine what this deranged lunatic that is Tarah could have in mind as she climbs up there with Cameron! Whatever it is, Cameron’s not gonna let it come to fruition that easily as she starts fighting back with fists of her own into the mid-section of Tarah! Tarah fires back with headbutts off the skull of Cameron! CAMERON HEADBUTTS HER BACK VICIOUSLY! Cameron forces her off as Tarah lands on the top rope!
Kawajai: Tarah barely keeping her balance on there as she continues her fight with Cameron! Both Vixens laying into one another with fists and forearms! Tarah seems to be taking back control in this exchange! A BIG HEADBUTT SEEMS TO KNOCK CAMERON THROUGH A LOOP! Tarah trying to cautiously climb up on the top rope! Cameron’s looking to do the same on the top turnbuckle! TARAH LEAPS ONTO THE SHOULDERS OF CAMERON–TRIPLE X DROP!!!! A FRANKENSTEINER–A FRANKENSTEINER ONTO THAT BRIDGED LADDER ON THE OUTSIDE!!! CAMERON ELLA AVA’S BODY JUST CAME CRASHING DOWN SPINE-FIRST ON THAT LADDER!!! IT WASN’T ENOUGH TO BREAK THE LADDER, BUT IT WAS ABSOLUTELY BRUTAL ALL THE SAME AS HER BODY JUST BOUNCED OFF OF IT!! WE NEED TO SEE A REPLAY OF THAT!
(A replay is shown in slow-motion of the Triple X Drop on Cameron Ella Ava as her body crashes onto the ladder and bounces off of it)
Mercer: That hurts my back just looking at it! Cameron could be damn-near paralyzed after that! Tarah Nova managed to catch herself on the apron as she pulls herself back up to her feet using the ring ropes to aid her… And look at that smile on her face! She knows she’s got this won! There’s just no way Cameron’s coming back from that… Tarah turns around and seems to have an injured Cameron in her sights.. Cameron’s doing everything she can to pull herself back up, but her body just isn’t cooperating… Tarah verbally abusing Cameron as she yells for her to get up! Cameron nearly up to her feet! TARAH RUNS OFF THAT BRIDGED LADDER! CURB STOMP!!!! THE RUDE AWAKENING CONNECTS VICIOUSLY AS THAT CURB STOMP DRIVES CAMERON’S SKULL RIGHT INTO THE MAT!!! There’s no doubt about it! This match belongs to Tarah Nova! Tarah climbs back up to her feet and looks towards those Hall of Fame Championships hanging above the ring! She’s got this won! All she has to do is get back in the ring and climb! Nobody’s stopping her! Wait… Tarah seems to be looking back and forth between the Titles and a still just barely moving Cameron…
Tarah (without a microphone): THIS IS OVER WHEN I SAY IT’S OVER, CAMERON! I’M GONNA SHOW YOU AND ALL OF THESE PEOPLE WHY I’M THE VIXEN KILLER!
Kawajai: I don’t like the sound of that as Tarah grabs another nearby ladder and immediately bridges it next to the already bridged ladder! Tarah goes and grabs another ladder and makes her way over… She places it horizontally atop the two bridged ladders! This is looking downright sadistic! Tarah grabs ANOTHER ladder! She places THAT one horizontally atop the two bridged ladders and next to the previous one! Is she in a match or a game of jenga?! She can’t honestly be thinking to put Cameron through that deathtrap, can she?! Tarah pulls Cameron back up to her feet and slams her face-first onto the apron! Tarah drags Cameron onto the apron and climbs up there with her! Tarah seems to believe she’s not just here to win a match! She thinks she’s here to end Cameron’s damn career! SHE PICKS CAMERON UP ON HER SHOULDERS!! NO–DON’T DO IT!
Mercer: A SHOT TO THE FACE! ANOTHER! ANOTHER! CAMERON’S STILL ALIVE HERE! BLOOD RUNS DOWN HER FOREHEAD FROM THAT CURBSTOMP EARLIER AS SHE THROWS SHOT AFTER SHOT AFTER SHOT INTO THE FACE OF TARAH! CAMERON’S DOING EVERYTHING SHE CAN TO KEEP FROM GETTING POWERBOMBED THROUGH THOSE LADDERS!! TARAH’S DOING ALL SHE CAN TO CONNECT WITH THIS POWERBOMB, BUT SHE’S AT THE DISADVANTAGE HERE!! HURRICANRANA!!! CAMERON TURNS IT INTO A HURRICANRANA AS TARAH GOES FLYING OFF THE APRON AND LANDS HARD ON THE MAT!! Tarah’s in a great deal of pain here and you can only imagine how Cameron’s body is holding up by this point, but nonetheless, Cameron forces herself back up! Tarah seems to have had enough of this as she stumbles up to her feet away as far away from the Champion as possible! Tarah seems to be making a tactical retreat as she makes her way up the ramp as Cameron follows! Cameron’s got malicious intent on her eyes as she pursues Tarah!
Kawajai: Both women make it up to the stage as Tarah desperately grabs for a ladder, but she’s stopped as Cameron lunges forward with clubbing blows into her! Cameron with multiple elbows off the jaw of Tarah before the challenger goes backpedaling away towards the edge of the stage! Cameron picks up that ladder as Tarah does all she can to remain on her feet! CAMERON COMES CHARGING!! SHE THROWS THAT LADDER LIKE A SPEAR AS TARAH DUCKS!! THE LADDER MISSES AND CRASHES INTO THE ELECTRICAL EQUIPMENT OFF THE SIDE OF THE STAGE! CAMERON TURNS AROUND–DEADLY DREAMS!!! TARAH CAUGHT HER FOR A SECOND TIME WITH THAT SUPERKICK!! TARAH IMMEDIATELY PULLS HER IN!! SHE’S GOT HER UP!! TARAH BOMB!!! A SHEER DROP POWERBOMB AS CAMERON IS SENT OFF THE SIDE OF THE STAGE!!! Shades of Shock Value as Tarah may have just finally succeeded in ending Cameron’s career tonight! Tarah’s on her knees, laughing at the realization of what she just did! She needs to celebrate later and get to winning the damn match!
Mercer: And it looks like she’s about to do just that as Tarah slowly gets back to her feet and makes her way back down the ramp and towards the ring! This crowd booing louder than ever as Tarah confidently makes her way to the ring to claim her victory! She looks like she’s walking on cloud nine right about now! Tarah gets to the–
(The crowd stands on their feet with loud cheers)
Kawajai: LOOK AT THIS!! LOOK AT THIS! CAMERON–SHE’S CLIMBING BACK UP ONTO THE STAGE!! CAMERON ELLA AVA IS STILL ALIVE!! SHE’S STILL INTACT!! SOMEHOW, SOMEWAY, CAMERON IS STILL FIGHTING!! TARAH LOOKS BACK AND CAN’T BELIEVE WHAT SHE’S SEEING!! TARAH LOOKS LIKE SHE’S JUST SEEN A GHOST AND SHE MAY VERY WELL BE SEEING A GHOST! CAMERON’S CLIMBED BACK ONTO THE STAGE AS TARAH QUICKLY ROLLS BACK INTO THE RING, LOOKING TO END THIS! TARAH PICKS UP THE LADDER AS QUICKLY AS SHE CAN AND SETS IT UP! CAMERON’S STUMBLING BACK TO HER FEET AS SHE MAKES HER WAY DOWN THE RAMP! TARAH’S CLIMBING! Cameron’s gaining momentum as she makes her way towards the ring! Tarah’s ascending that ladder as quickly as she can! Cameron’s rolled back into the ring! Unbelievable! This crowd is on their feet as Cameron starts climbing!! Tarah’s there! SHE GRABS THE TITLES AND PULLS THEM DOWN!! NO–CAMERON STOPS HER WITH A SHOT TO THE GUT! ANOTHER! ANOTHER SHOT CONNECTS AS TARAH STARTS FIGHTING BACK! TARAH UNLOADING WITH EVERYTHING SHE’S GOT!! SHE PICKS CAMERON UP ON HER SHOULDERS!! MURDER CITY PLUNGE!!!! NO–CAMERON WITH AN ELBOW OFF THE SIDE OF TARAH’S SKULL!! CAMERON UNLOADING WITH RAPID ELBOWS!!
Mercer: CAMERON SLIDES OFF THE SHOULDERS OF TARAH! TARAH WITH A SHOT, BUT IT’S BLOCKED! GODDESS’ TOUCH!!!! CAMERON NAILS THE GODDESS’ TOUCH OUT OF DESPERATION AS SHE FALLS DOWN TO THE CANVAS WHILE TARAH FALLS DOWN, BUT HER LEG IS CAUGHT IN A RUNG OF THE LADDER!!! Tarah may not have lost this yet! She just got knocked through a loop, but she can still win this! Come on! Cameron took the greater fall there! All Tarah has to do is shake the cobwebs out and grab the Titles! Tarah’s looking dazed and confused as she starts moving! She sees the Championships looming over her! Blood trickling down from Tarah’s mouth as she uses what strength she has left to pull herself up! Cameron’s definitely in greater pain, but forcing herself up as quickly as she can! Tarah… She’s pulled herself up! She can see the Championships in her reach!! Come on!! Grab them!! SHE GRABS THEM!!!
Kawajai: CAMERON PUSHES THE LADDER OVER AS TARAH NOVA GOES FLYING OFF AND THROUGH THOSE BRIDGED LADDERS ON THE OUTSIDE!!!!!! JESUS CHRIST!!!! TARAH NOVA’S BODY SWALLOWED BY BROKEN PIECES OF WHAT LADDERS DID BREAK AND THE ONES THAT DIDN’T BREAK!! WE NEED E.M.T.S OUT HERE IMMEDIATELY!! CAMERON’S BARELY ABLE TO PULL HERSELF UP AS SHE MANAGES TO PULL THE LADDER BACK IN PLACE!! SHE STARTS CLIMBING!! A STEP ON EACH RUNG AS SHE MAKES HER WAY CLOSER AND CLOSER!! TARAH’S STILL MOTIONLESS IN THE HEAP OF LADDERS!! CAMERON’S UP!! SHE PULLS BOTH CHAMPIONSHIPS DOWN!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“Rumors” by Lindsay Lohan plays all throughout the arena as Cameron falls off the ladder and down to the canvas with both Championships in her grasp)
Announcer: The Winner of this contest…. AND STTTTIIIILLLLLLL EAW HALL OF FAME CHAMPION!!…… CAMERON! ELLA!! AAAAAAAAVVVVVVVAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!
Mercer: I’m… I’m at a loss for words.
Kawajai: Allow me to speak for you then, we need some medical attention for Tarah Nova IMMEDIATELY and Cameron Ella Ava has just retained the Hall Of Fame Championship right here tonight at King of Elite in an absolutely BRUTAL Ladder Match! One of the toughest bouts I’ve ever seen between two Vixens!
(Medical Technicians rush down to check on both Tarah Nova and Cameron Ella Ava)
Kawajai: Cameron told Tarah that she would go back to that place she went against Jaywalker and that she would do absolutely anything to win this match and she made good on her word! These two women just shortened one another’s careers and one another’s lives here tonight with the display they just put on! What an emphatic way to end what may be the final chapter in this vicious rivalry between two of the best competitors in this company today! Congratulations to Cameron Ella Ava!
(Tarah Nova is helped onto a stretcher as Cameron is helped to her feet by a couple Officials as she triumphantly holds up both Hall Of Fame Championships to the delight of the crowd)
( Camera goes backstage, and shows Eve standing beside a still weary Tyler Parker who holds the World Heavyweight Championship over his shoulder with fingerprints of blood covering it. Tyler has a somber look to him. )
Eve: Tyler, just gotta say incredible, incredible performance tonight. How does it feel picking up your 2nd World Title reign?
Tyler Parker: I really didn’t know what to expect… I knew I’d hold this, I knew I wouldn’t stop moving, I wouldn’t stop fighting until I stopped breathing and I managed to hang on long enough.
Eve: Any words on your opponent, your former mentor Mr. DEDEDE?
Tyler: Somewhere inside that broken false idol being carried out of that ring is a man who was my mentor, my best friend, a father figure. Everything we’ve been through, good or bad over the last seven years eventually culminated to this, and I hope he finds his way, I really do.
( The screen behind them shows replays of Tyler breaking out of the Meth Lock and battering DEDEDE with headbutts and hitting Five Across The Park’s )
Eve: Tyler can you explain what happened out there? You seeme to have gotten a second wind, what came over you and what was going through your mind when that happened?
Tyler: *Tyler looks at the screen for a moment, but then looks down* … I don’t know. I was on tunnel vision at that point. It’s pretty hazy, I don’t know if I’m concussed, a few people are telling me I am. I really don’t remember any of it and frankly, I don’t want to.
Eve: Thanks Tyler.
( Tyler nods, and walks off. )
Eve: Back to you, Jake.
Mercer: Thanks Eve, powerful words from Tyler Parker the NEW World Heavyweight Champion. But will we have a new EAW Champion as well? Two trains are set to collide in just a moment, the EAW title is up for grabs RIGHT NOW!
(Camera transitions back to the O.A.K.A Stadium where an EAW Championship graphic is shown)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Announcer: The following contest is scheduled for ONE fall…. AND IS FOR THE ELITE ANSWERS WRESTLING CHAMPIONSHIIIIIPPPPPPPP….
(An engine is heard revving up)
(“Wanted Man” [Acoustic] by Rev Theory plays all throughout the Stadium as Hades The Hellraiser rides out to the stage on a custom chopper, dressed in his black ring attire with a black trenchcoat on, black sunglasses, and a bandana)
Announcer: First, the challenger!…. Making his way to the ring…. From Devil Town, North Carolina!…. Weighing in at 312 pounds!…. HE IS “EAW’S VINTAGE HELLRAISER”…. HADES! THE!! HEEEEELLLLLLLLLRRRRRRRAAAIIIISSSSSEEEERRRRR!!!….
Kawajai: You could say this contest has been months in the making ever since it was set to take place at the Showdown SuperShow late last year, but was cut off when then-Champion, Hades, was instead given a new opponent after then-challenger, Cage, was drafted to Voltage. The side the Championship is on and the the Championship itself and the brand it’s contested on may have changed, but it’s still the same two vicious competitors and you can bet they’ve got s score to settle here tonight.
(“Smells Like Teen Spirit” by Nirvana plays all throughout the Stadium as the crowd erupts with cheers while Diamond Cage makes his way out to the stage dressed in jeans, a white athletic shirt, and his EAW Championship around his waist as the crowd erupts with cheers)
Announcer: And his opponent!…. Making his way to the ring…. From Edmonton, Alberta, Canada!…. HE IS THE REIGNING AND DEFENDING ELITE ANSWERS WRESTLING CHAMPION…. DIAMOND CAAAAAAAAAAAAAGGGGGGGGGEEEEEEEEE!!!….
Mercer: I don’t think there’s a single person this guy DOESN’T make an enemy out of, and his opponent tonight is certainly no exception. Only last week on Voltage, Diamond Cage became so paranoid that he assaulted Hades and turned what could have been a celebration into a brawl, but tonight, there isn’t gonna be any brawls or street rules like Cage likes to play by. He has to defend that Championship under ELITE rules, and there’s nothing he can do–
(Cage picks up the Announcer’s steel chair, folds it up, and rolls into the ring with it in hand as he and Hades stare down)
Mercer: What does he think he’s doing? Is this coward planning on getting himself disqualified right off the bat?!
Kawajai: I highly doubt that, what kind of crazy… Oh, well, who knows.
(DING! DING! DING!)
Kawajai: I’ve got no idea what Cage thinks he’s gonna do with that steel chair in hand, but this contest is officially underway as the Champion and challenger stare down… Hades does not seem pleased with Cage bringing a chair into this as both men make their way towards one another… Hades yelling for Cage to either use the chair or put it down, he seems ready for either! Cage with a shrug.. HE THROWS THE CHAIR AT HADES! It’s caught! CAGE WITH A RUNNING DROPKICK STRAIGHT INTO THE BODY OF HADES AS THAT CHAIR GOES FLYING OUT OF HIS HANDS! The Referee kicks that chair out of the ring as Cage successfully used it to gain the upperhand in this contest! Hades is backed into the corner as Cage lays into him with a flurry of closed-fist shots! Hades using his superior strength to force Cage off and send him down to the canvas! Cage only rolls right back up to his feet and lunges forward for more shots into Hades! The Referee gets himself involved to get Cage to stop!
Referee: COME ON, BREAK IT UP! ONE! TWO! THREE!
Mercer: Cage pushes the Referee out of the way and charges into the adjacent corner! DC COMES CHARGING BACK LIKE A LOCOMOTIVE! AND A BIG STINGER SPLASH CONNECTS INTO HADES! DC immediately rushes back into the adjacent corner and charges again! A SECOND STINGER SPLASH CONNECTS!! The big man looks to be getting worn down from Cage’s constant and rapid assault as Cage runs back to the adjacent corner and back! STINGER SPLASH!! HADES HAS IT SCOUTED THIS TIME AROUND AS HE SIDESTEPS IT! DC’s momentum turns against him as he lands skull first into the top turnbuckle with great force! HADES IMMEDIATELY PICKS UP A DAZED CAGE! AND SENDS HIM RIGHT BACK INTO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE WITH A SNAKE EYES!! DC’s eggs gotta be scrambled as he stumbles around after eating that turnbuckle! HADES COMES CHARGING IN TO FOLLOW UP! BIG BOOT!! Nobody’s home as Cage manages to pull himself through the ropes and escape to the outside! Hades doesn’t look content with letting Cage get off that easy! HADES COMES CHARGING WITH MOMENTUM AT HIS BACK!
Kawajai: PLANCHA OVER THE ROPES!!! CAGE SEES IT COMING AS HE SLIDES BACK INTO THE RING TO AVOID IT AS HADES CRASHES AND BURNS ON THE OUTSIDE, ROLLING INTO THE BARRICADE!! This contest has already been an explosive one between these two competitors and I got a feeling it’s only just the start as Cage seems to be verbally taunting Hades as he waits for him to get back up… Hades definitely in pain after missing that big plancha that he pulled out much earlier than you’d expect in this contest, and using it so early on may have been why it backfired… Hades is up as Cage comes barreling! SUICIDE DIVE–HE’S CAUGHT!! HATE FILLS THE EYES OF HADES AS HE CATCHES CAGE COMPLETELY DEAD IN HIS TRACKS WITH A HAND AROUND HIS THROAT!! HADES CHOKING THE LIFE OUT OF DC WITH THAT HAND AS CAGE STRUGGLES FOR AIR! Hades showing incredible strength as he drags Cage through the ropes and to the outside! Cage still fighting as much as possible! CHOKESLAM CONNECTS OFF THE APRON!!!
Mercer: You can just read the pain from that one as Cage cringes and drops to his knees! Hades doesn’t look finished yet as he pulls Cage up and sends him rolling back into the ring… Hades climbs up–Cage somehow already back up as he desperately lunges forward for a headbutt into the gut of Hades! Cage pulls himself all the way back up and nails the big man with a right! A left! A right! Hades is looking dazed as Cage looks for something high-risk! Climbing up to the top turnbuckle! CAGE LEAPS!! HE’S CAUGHT BY HADES WITH A HAND WRAPPED AROUND HIS THROAT FOR A SECOND TIME!! HADES SENDS HIM UP!! CHOKESLAM!!! No–Cage has it scouted this time around as he fights to escape Hades’ grip and finally swats the arm of Hades away! Cage follows up with elbow after elbow off the skull of Hades! Hades swings, but he’s caught with a baseball slide that takes one leg out from under him by Cage! Cage is feeling the adrenaline he’s getting from this rabid crowd in Athens tonight! He grabs a hold of Hades by the hair and throws an onslaught of shots his way! Cage is fully back on the offensive and he knows it! CAGE LEAPS TO THE SHOULDERS OF HADES–HURRICANRANA?!!
Kawajai: Hades isn’t letting it connect! Cage tried to pull out something unorthodox and it may very well backfire here as Hades fights it! He uses that power of his to pull Cage back onto his shoulders! NO WAY–LAST CALL OFF OF THE DAMN APRON!!!! CAGE IS HOLDING ON–HE BITES HADES!!! CAGE BITES HADES AS THE REFEREE GETS HIM TO STOP!! This guy is insane! Cage uses this opportunity to escape off the shoulders of Hades and back into the ring! Hades quickly turns around as Cage leaps forward with rough forearm off the skull! Hades swings, but it’s blocked! Cage continues to unload with shots into the skull of his challenger! Cage charges off the adjacent ropes! And leaps for another big forearm off the skull of Hades that has the challenger just BARELY hanging on by a thread! Cage knows he’s got Hades right where he wants him as he charges off the ropes again! BASEBALL SLIDE!! Hades’ legs are taken out from under him as he comes crashing down face-first on the apron!! He’s still just barely able to stay on his feet here on the outside as Cage looks to follow up by making his way to the high-rent district once more! He’s perched! CAGE LEAPS!!
Mercer: A NASTY-LOOKING FLYING ELBOW CONNECTS RIGHT INTO HADES THE HELLRAISER AS BOTH MEN CRASH DOWN TO THE MAT!!! What a move from the Champion! Cage only gives a damn about winning this contest by any means, that much is for certain! It doesn’t seem to matter to him if he has to sacrifice his body to accomplish that! The Referee has no choice but to start his count as both men are still down on the outside…
Referee: ONE!!!……. TWO!!!!………. THREE!!!!………. FOUR!!!!……… FIVE!!!…….
Kawajai: No surprise that Cage is the first one to make it back to his feet here as he grabs a hold of Hades and pulls him back up…
Referee: SEVEN!!!…….. EIGHT!!!!
Mercer: And Cage sends Hades rolling back into the ring before sliding back in himself… Cage seems to be signaling the end here as he stalks his opponent! What a huge victory this would be for the Champion to end this right here and now! Hades struggling to get up… Cage grabs a hold of him and pulls him in! CAGE SHOWING IMPRESSIVE STRENGTH AS HE PICKS THE BIG MAN UP!! MERCY RULE!!!! THE MERCY RULE CONNECTS AS HADES IS DRIVEN SKULL-FIRST INTO THE CANVAS!! CAGE ROLLS OVER AND HOOKS THE LEG OF HADES FOR THE WIN!!
Kawajai: HADES KICKS OUT?! Hades kicks out of the Mercy Rule at a mere one count! Cage can’t believe it! Cage managed to nail the most devastating maneuver in his arsenal and Hades kicked out of it like it was nothing! Cage is looking at the Referee, unsure if what just happened REALLY just happened! Unbelievable resilience from the challenger! Cage looks absolutely livid! Cage gets back up and grabs a hold of Hades by his hair as he pulls him up with him, verbally assaulting him as well! Cage with a few hard shots into the skull of Hades before pulling him in once more! PICKING HIM UP!! Hades escapes the Mercy Rule this time around as he lands behind Cage and forces him off, into the ropes! Cage coming back WITH A PENDULUM LARIAT!!! HE’S TAKEN OFF HIS FEET AND NEARLY TURNED INSIDE OUT WITH A FLYING LARIAT FROM HADES!!! Hades may have just cut off all of Cage’s momentum with that one! Both men down! Hades could be making a comeback here! It’s become a race to who can get back to their feet first between these two men! Hades has taken the most damage so far, but Cage just took a brutal unexpected lariat, so his damage is more fresh… It looks like Hades is up first as he sends a boot off the skull of Cage!
Mercer: Cage is stopped momentarily, but keeps pulling himself back up as Hades nails him with a second shot to the skull with a boot! Cage forces himself up to his feet with a deranged look on his face! BACKHAND CHOP OFF THE FACE OF HADES! CAGE LOOKS LIKE A RABID ANIMAL HERE AS HADES REPLIES WITH ANOTHER BOOT OFF OF HIS FACE!! CAGE FIRES BACK WITH MORE BACKHAND CHOPS TO HADES!! HE GOES FOR THE LARIAT TO CAP OFF THE DIAMOND SAINT SPECIAL!! HE’S CAUGHT WITH A BIG SIDE SLAM FROM HADES!! HADES WITH AN IMMEDIATE COVER!
Referee: ONE!!!!!!……. TWO!!!!!!
Kawajai: It’s not enough to keep Cage down, but Hades seems to be ready and willing to continue his assault as he grabs the right arm of Cage and drags him back up… Cage nearly back to his feet when Hades pulls him and drives the right shoulder of Cage into his body! Hades drops cage with a big lariat, but keeps that arm in his grasp! He drags Cage back up… And another big lariat connects as Cage drops to the canvas! Hades dragging the Champion up once more as he navigates him over to the corner before climbing up… Hades showing some impressive balance here as he walks the top rope! DEATH FROM ABOVE!!! NO–CAGE RUSHES UP TO THE SECOND ROPE AND GRABS HADES–BELLY TO BELLY SUPLEX!!! HADES GOES FLYING ACROSS THE RING AS HE LANDS HARD ON THE CANVAS WITH GREAT VELOCITY!! CAGE MAY HAVE FOUND–LOOK AT THIS!! HADES QUICKLY GETS BACK UP TO HIS FEET!! CAGE IS STILL DAMAGED, STILL DAZED FROM HADES’ ASSAULT, BUT HADES SEEMS UNDAMAGED AFTER THAT HUGE SUPLEX! A woozy Cage gets back up to his feet and turns around in disbelief at Hades before he’s met with a big boot straight to the face!! Cage is sent reeling into the nearest corner! HADES COMES CHARGING! HE’S MET WITH A BOOT OFF THE JAW FROM CAGE!!
Mercer: Hades backpedals! CAGE EXPLODES OUT OF THE CORNER, BUT HE’S STOPPED WITH A ONE-HANDED UPPERCUT AS HE’S SENT BACK IN THE CORNER! HADES–CAGE SPITS IN THE FACE OF HADES!! CAGE DRENCHED IN SWEAT AS HE EGGS HADES ON!!
Cage (without a microphone): YOU WANT THE EAW CHAMPIONSHIP?! COME AND GET IT, BIG GUY!!
Kawajai: HADES BURSTS FORWARD AND NAILS CAGE WITH A LOUD BOOT ACROSS THE FACE!! Cage’s body going limp, but Hades isn’t letting him off that easy! Hades not with mounted punches right into the body of Cage! Hades backs off momentarily as blood leaks from the mouth of Cage! I can’t tell if that’s from a busted lip or internal bleeding! Cage… Cage with fierce determination in his eyes as he lifts himself back up and looks straight at Hades!
Cage (without a microphone): Huh?…. IS THAT ALL YA GOT?!
Mercer: HADES RUSHES IN ONCE MORE–CAGE SIDESTEPS IT AS HADES NEARLY COLLIDES WITH THE CORNER! HE TURNS AROUND AS CAGE COMES CHARGING! STINGER SPLASH!!! HADES CATCHES CAGE AND THROWS HIM BACK INTO THE CORNER WITH AN ELEVATED DOUBLE ARM CHOKE!!! HADES BACK TO THOSE MOUNTED PUNCHES RIGHT INTO THE BODY OF A BATTERED DIAMOND CAGE!!
Referee: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR!
Kawajai: Hades puts a stop to the onslaught and lifts Cage up! Picking him up and getting him in position for a Brimstone–CAGE FIGHTING IT! SOMEHOW, HE’S STILL FIGHTING! HADES SHIFTS AND STARTS RUNNING FOR A POWERSLAM INSTEAD!! Cage slips off and uses Hades’ own momentum against him to drive him into the corner! Hades BRUTALLY collides with the top turnbuckle and backs up as Cage catches him!! A HUGE GERMAN SUPLEX CONNECTS AS HADES LANDS RIGHT ON THE BACK OF HIS SKULL!! Cage looks to the downed Hades and next to this rabid Athens crowd before pulling himself back up to his feet and making his way over to the corner! This crowd is firmly in his corner as he climbs up to the top… Hades slowly making his way back up.. Cage is slowed down as those ribs bother him… HE’S UP AS HADES GETS TO HIS FEET! MOONSAULT!!! HE’S CAUGHT BY HADES!! BRIMSTONE PILEDRIVER!!!! THE BRIMSTONE PILEDRIVER CONNECTS!!!! HADES WITH THE COVER!! WE HAVE A NEW CHAMPION!
Referee: ONE!!!!!!…….. TWO!!!!!!!………. THREE!!!
Mercer: CAGE KICKS OUT!! CAGE MANAGES TO GET A SHOULDER UP!! HE KICKED OUT OF THE BRIMSTONE PILEDRIVER!! HADES CAN’T BELIEVE IT! HADES LOOKS AT THE REF TO MAKE SURE HE HEARD THAT RIGHT! Hades has no choice but to keep going as he drags Cage back up… He picks him up! LOOKING FOR A SECOND TRY! BRIMSTONE–CAGE PULLS HIM DOWN!! HADES DROPS TO THE CANVAS AS CAGE SOMEHOW PULLS HIMSELF UP!! ANKLE LOCK!!! CAGE WITH AN ANKLE LOCK!!! TAKING A PAGE OUT OF STARRSTAN’S BOOK HERE!! HADES IS FIGHTING IT!! CAGE LOOKS LIKE HE MAY BE OUT OF IT WITH A GLAZED OVER LOOK, BUT HE CONTINUES TO FIGHT! HADES TRYING TO ESCAPE THIS AS HE ROLLS OVER–CAGE GRABS HIS LEGS!! HE’S SETTING HIM UP!! SHARPSHOOTER!!!! HE ROLLS HADES OVER TO LOCK IN THE SHARPSHOOTER!!! HADES MAY TAP!! HADES IS PANICKING, DOING EVERYTHING HE CAN TO REACH THE ROPES, BUT HE’S TOO FAR AWAY!!
Kawajai: HE’S GONNA TAP!! NO–HADES USING HIS POWER TO FORCE HIMSELF BACK ONTO HIS BACK!! HE’S SUCCESSFUL AS HE PULLS CAGE IN–HE BREAKS THE SHARPSHOOTER!! HELL’S GATE!!!! HE CAUGHT CAGE WITH A SUBMISSION OF HIS OWN AND THE STRONGEST SUBMISSION HE’S CAPABLE OF WITH THE HELL’S GATE!! CAGE IS NOW THE ONE IN PANIC MODE!! CAGE DOING ANYTHING HE POSSIBLY CAN TO GET OUT OF THIS!! I THINK… I THINK HE’S TRYING TO LIFT HADES UP!! HE’S TRYING TO PICK HIM UP FOR A POTENTIAL POWERBOMB!! NO WAY! NO WAY CAN–CAGE DROPS BACK DOWN! HE’S NOT ABLE TO DO IT!! HADES HAS THE HELL’S GATE LOCKED IN TIGHT!! THE CHAMPION MAY BE SECONDS FROM TAPPING!! HE’S GOT AN ARM UP!! CAGE ROLLS HADES ONTO HIS SHOULDERS FOR A PIN!!
Referee: ONE!!!!!!!……… TWO!!!!!!!!!!………..
Mercer: CAGE PUTS BOTH FEET ON THE ROPES?!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Mercer: YOU’RE KIDDING ME!
(“Smells Like Teen Spirit” by Nirvana plays all throughout the arena as a shocked Hades breaks the Hell’s Gate and slowly gets back up to his feet to argue with the Referee while a damaged Diamond Cage rolls to the outside)
Announcer: THE WINNER OF THIS CONTEST BY PINFALL…. AND STTTTTIIIIIIIIIIIILLLLLLLL EAW CHAMPION!!!…….. DIAMOND CAAAAAAAAAAAAGGGGGGGGGEEEEEE!!!!
Kawajai: Cage steals this one right out from under Hades out of nowhere!
Mercer: You’re damn right he stole it! This is ridiculous! Restart! I demand a restart! Cage clearly just cheated to win this!
Kawajai: All’s fair in love and war, as they say, Jake, the Referee didn’t see Cage’s feet on the ropes, therefore Cage got a clean win. Isn’t that something you would say?
Mercer: Hell no! Cage is a coward! How dare he taint this contest like this! How can you get behind this guy?! He has no right to hold that Championship!
Kawajai: Do you honestly think Diamond Cage cares whether I’m behind him or you’re against him? I don’t condone what he just did, but the fact of the matter is that he won! All that’s gonna be written in the history books is that Cage walked out of King of Elite STILL EAW Champion!
Mercer: Absolutely sickening, and you can bet Zack Crash will have something to say about this!
(Diamond Cage stands up on the barricade, triumphantly holding up his EAW Championship as a still shocked and now pissed off Hades looks on from the ring. Camera fades out.)
( Norman Hellion is seen walking backstage in a dark, empty hallway, being followed by the camera in front of him as he carries his Answers World Championship and looks into the screen. )
Norman Hellion: Alex. I hope you’re ready for this Alex. I hope you’re prepared for the pain and suffering coming your way Alex. I hope, I really, truly hope that you’re prepared. You’ve built a kingdom of delusions and lies, and you hold that ACE Championship as your crown jewel. What will happen when I TAKE THAT AWAY FROM YOU ALEX? WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO WHEN I CRUSH YOUR DREAMS AND THROW THEM INTO THE WIND?? ..
( Norman, while walking, stops and focuses at something off-camera )
Norman: Take this man for an example.
( The camera turns and shows Mr. DEDEDE, still in his ring gear sitting alone with his head in his hands, staring at the ground with a blank stare. )
Norman: This man– NOT A GOD– THIS MAN just lost everything. He had his kingdom ripped away from him. But he wasn’t as much of a liar and a fraud as you are… IMAGINE WHAT’S GOING TO HAPPEN TO YOU ALEX?? HERE, GO AHEAD, TELL HIM MR. DEDEDE, TELL HIM WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU SIT ON A THRONE OF LIES!
DEDEDE: Shut the Fuck up.
Norman: Would you look at this? Looks like we’ve got a volunteer. Here’s a demonstration–
( Norman grabs DEDEDE, but DEDEDE jumps up and shoves Norman away)
Mack: LOOK AT THIS, NORMAN DRIVES DEDEDE INTO THE WALL! THE MAN’S HURT, THERE’S NO WAY HE CAN FIGHT! NORMAN ASSAULTING MR. DEDEDE AFTER HE HAD THAT HELLACIOUS TITLE MATCH, AND NORMAN DRIVING KNEES INTO THE BODY OF MR. DEDEDE! NORMAN PULLS DDD UP AND PICKS HIM UP AND DROPS HIM RIGHT ONTO THE CONCRETE FLOOR! RIGHT ON HIS HEAD! AND NORMAN STOMPS ON DDD SOME MORE!
Norman: THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS, ALEX! THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS TO THE WEAK! THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS TO YOU TONIGHT!
( Norman is being backed away by a couple of security guards, and Norman walks away from the scene while DDD’s shown on the ground holding his head in agony. )
Mack: Hellion looking to prove a point, and he’s just taken it out on the former World Heavyweight Champion!
( Camera fades away from the scene )
( Camera pans to the center of the ring. )
RA: The following contest is scheduled for one fall! And it is a WINNER TAKES ALL MATCH!
( Camera fades backstage – where it showcases Norman Hellion once more with the Answers World Championship walking backstage, right at the Gorilla Area – until he stops right in his tracks, looking upon something not shown on the screen. )
( The camera shifts to the side – where it showcases Psycho Brody alongside Dr. Erik Vance and Lannister. )
Lannister: Brother. Feed into this pretender. We shall unite soon enough.
( Norman Hellion gives Lannister a nod, before finally walking past he and Brody… as the camera follows Norman’s steps until he barges through the curtain, in which the camera shifts to the stage view. )
( “The Devil in I” by Slipknot echoes throughout the arena as a sudden chill circles around the aura of the arena as Norman walks out with the Answers World Championship, glaring down the ring itself. )
RA: And introducing first… from Parts Unknown, weighing in at 314 pounds… he is the ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION…. NORMANNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN HELLLLLLLIONNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN!!!!
Matt Ryder: And here comes the bone-chilling man, himself. Norman Hellion. I can’t believe it’s already been a month since Norman won that very championship at Road to Redemption. And he is still as advertised – he is the most dominating force in this industry today, and this chump Alex Anderson thinks he can lay claim to Norman Hellion? Is he mad?
Mack: I’m not sure if Alex is mad for wanting the Answers World Championship – but I do find it troubling of what Norman might possibly do here tonight. After all – he was wronged by Alex Anderson this past week on Showdown – leaving Norman alone in a tag match to win. I wouldn’t be trying to piss off a man like Norman more than usual – but seems as if Anderson has made a job out of it.
( “Murder to Excellence” by Jay Z and Kanye West echoes throughout the arena as Alex Anderson makes his presence known to the people of Athens, Greece. He walks down the entrance ramp with his ACE Championship on his shoulder, as he taunts and points Norman’s way the entire time. )
RA: And introducing his opponent… from Toronto, Ontario, Canada… weighing in at 247 pounds… he is the ACE Champion… ALEXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX ANDDDDDDDDERRRRSOOOOOONNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Ryder: And here comes the ACE of EAW, himself… Alex Anderson. Anderson, who I consider mad for wanting to get in the ring with Norman willingly – might have his madness pay off tonight with an Answers World Championship. But he has quite the mountain to climb, and he might pay his ambition in that of that championship he desperately wanted create.
Mack: But looks as if this match is finally here, and these two’s tempers that have been boiling over for the past few weeks – can finally unleash upon each other! Ladies and gentlemen, the WINNER TAKES ALL MATCH… NORMAN HELLION AND ALEX ANDERSON… IS FINALLY UNDER WAY!!!
( DING! DING! DING! )
Ryder: Neither man wants to play the assertive role, as both explode from their corners! Haymakers left and right from both of these champions! Norman gets the best of Alex, as he’s able to push Anderson back to the turnbuckle! Norman takes one big swing with his entire arm – NO, Alex Anderson ducks out of the way, as he escapes from out of the corner! Norman turns around – RUNNING RIGHT INTO A STANDING DROP KICK FROM THE ACE OF EAW! Norman quickly recovers up to his feet, but not before Anderson can grapple Norman’s waist – turning it into a clashing suplex! Alex Anderson started this match off HOT! Norman gets back to his feet, as Anderson irish whips him back into the corner! What does Alex wish to do here? As he climbs up to the second rope… here we go – FISTS OF FURY!
ONEEE… TWOO… THREE PUNCHES… FOUR…
Mack: BUT MAH GAWD! THERE’S THE END OF THAT! Norman just punished Anderson for trying to climb that mountain – as Anderson clashes to the canvas! But wait – there’s some fight in this dog! Anderson immediately gets up on his feet, and comes running at Norman Hellion once more! BUT NO – RUNS RIGHT INTO AN STO FROM NORMAN! Norman is trying to shake the cobwebs out, as I’m not sure even he expected Alex to come out storms ablazing. But it only seemed to piss off the world champ even more! Norman grabs Alex, prompting him up from the canvas – as he sizes Alex up – HAYMAKER TO THE TEMPLE – NO! Alex dodges out of the way, spins Norman around – a PUNCH RIGHT BETWEEN THE EYES! But that’s not enough to get Norman down to the ground – Alex sizes Norman up once more – another jab! And another! But Norman still on his feet – reeling – but very much on his feet! Anderson has absolutely had enough – as he garners momentum – bouncing off the rope and running right after Norman trying to get him off his feet!
Ryder: BIG BOOT FROM THE BEHEMOTH! Norman wasn’t having any of that! Mah gawdness, you could hear the thump in that collision. Alex doesn’t know what he’s up against, in truth. Norman has those crazy eyes going on, he’s a BAD – BAD MAN. Alex has gotten to his feet but the man might be concussed – he’s stumbling all over the place, using the ropes as leverage! But Norman dares not to give him a moment’s rest – as he takes both his humongous hands and wraps them around Anderson’s neck! Anderson is trying to latch onto the ropes, in escape – but Norman’s finally having his way! He carries Anderson to the center of the ring, with his arms still grappled around Anderson’s neck – he lifts up – SIT OUT CHOKE POWERBOMB TO THE ACE CHAMPION! We’ll keep spinning this narrative as long it needs to be spun – Alex simply doesn’t know what he got himself into here tonight – and Norman is helping him realize that.
Mack: Norman isn’t letting Alex Anderson any room to to breath here – as he screams for Alex to “GET UP!” You can just see this passion in Norman’s eyes … I’m not sure if Anderson listened to Norman’s choice words, but he is definitely complying to those terms – Anderson up on his feet… and Norman charges after him once more – LARIAT — NO, ANDERSON HITS A DROP TOE HOLD ON THE BIG MAN! FINALLY CRASHING HIM DOWN TO THE MAT. ALEX ROLLS ONTO NORMAN, GIVING HIM SOME LOU THESZ PUNCHES. GROUND AND POUND – BUT NORMAN THROWS ALEX OFF OF HIM! Both men get back to their feet – but Alex the first to act as he sends a kick right to the gut of Norman! Norman hunches over, and LOOK AT THIS! ALEX BOUNCES OFF THE ROPES, SCISSOR KICK TO THE BACK OF NORMAN’S HEAD! MAH GAWDNESS! NORMAN’S DOWN! NORMAN’S OUT! THE COVER! ARE WE GOING TO HAVE A NEW ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION?
REF: ONE…! TWO…! THR —
Ryder: But the Behemoth powers out! And Alex is quick to go back to work on the reeling Norman Hellion! Is he actually going to try to lift him up in the air?! A PILEDRIVER! ON NORMAN HELLION! But Alex can’t exactly lift all the way! HE LIFTS AGAIN – NO! NORMAN HITS A BACK BODY DROP ON ALEX ANDERSON, AS HE CRASHES TO THE FLOOR! Norman not letting up either – He lifts Alex Anderson up again! SIDEWALK SLAM — NO – Alex Anderson gauges the eyes of the RAGNAROK member! Norman promptly lets Alex Anderson off his shoulder – and he neglects the wrath of the referee – BRAINBUSTERRRRRRRR ON THE CHAMPION! NO! NORMAN TWISTS ANDERSON’S ARM AROUND – GETS BEHIND THE CANADIAN – WHIPLASH! AS ALEX GOES CRASHING TO THE CANVAS! EVEN WHEN YOU THINK YOU HAVE NORMAN WHERE YOU WANT HIM – HE KEEPS COMING BACK! But now Norman, sadistic looking all – looks like he has something mustered up, as he starts ripping the turnbuckle padding off! He obviously wants bone and steal to mesh! He throws the padding back into the crowd – but as he turns around HERE COMES ANDERSON! IN ONE FALL SWOOP, ANDERSON HITS A BULLDOG ON NORMAN, AS HIS FACE MEETS WITH THAT UNPROTECTED PADDING – AND OFF THE REBOUND ALEX ANDERSON HITS A KICK TO THE THROAT OF NORMAN! BUT EVEN THAT DOESN’T GET THE BIG MAN OFF HIS FEET – BUT BRAINBUSTERRRRRRR! IT CONNECTS THIS TIME! MY GOODNESS, ARE WE FINALLY SEEING A REVELATION OF ALEX ANDERSON HERE TONIGHT? I NEVER THOUGHT I’D SEE A COLLECTION OF DOMINANCE, AND NORMAN BEING ON THE RECEIVING END OF IT!
Mack: But Anderson by all means, does not look satisfied with himself! Alex knows he has to do much more to keep the behemoth down here! But now he is definitely taking a liking to toying with the Answers World Champion! As he’s slapping him across the cheek, as Norman recovers! NOW THAT’S CROSSING IT – SPITTING IN THE FACE OF NORMAN! HE’S GOING TO REGRET THAT – AS NORMAN IMMEDIATELY GRABS HIM BY THE THROAT, AS HE LIFTS HIMSELF OFF THE CANVAS! NORMAN LIFTS ANDERSON UP INTO THE AIR, NOW GRABBING HIM BY BOTH ARMS! BUT ANDERSON SQUEALS OUT OF IT – AND OUT OF THE RING! Looks like Alex has had enough of that scare! As now he’s trying to create a little separat — WAIT WHAT IS NORMAN DOING! HE BOUNCES OFF THE ROPES, CARRIES MOMENTUM — SUICIDE DIVE TO THE OUTSIDE!!!! THE BIG MAN CRASHES DOWN ON ANDERSON! The referee starts the voluntary countdown… but Norman doesn’t seem to be taking much awareness to it, as he now is using the barricade as a weapon! He lifts Anderson up, AND HIS FACE MEETS WITH THE BARRICADE WALL! NOW NORMAN GRABS ANDERSON BY THE BACK OF THE NECK AND THROWS HIM INTO THE SIDE OF THE STEEL STEPS! NORMAN IS ABSOLUTELY MAKING ANDERSON PAY NOW!
REF: FOUR…. FIVE…
Ryder: Norman rolls into the ring, then rolls back out so the referee has to start over with his count! But instead of making his way back to Alex Anderson, he stands right upon that ring apron! He let’s Alex get back up under his own will power, as Norman waits in anticipation… Alex promptly gets to his feet – BUT HE ACTS QUICKER THAN NORMAN ANTICIPATED! AS NORMAN GETS HIS FEET TAKEN UNDER HIM AND CRASHES TO THE EDGE OF THE APRON! NOW ALEX CLIMBS UP THOSE STEEL STEPS, GRABBING HIS HEAD IN ANGST – AND DELIVERS A LEG DROP TO THE FACE OF THE WORLD CHAMPION! MAH GAWD! NOW ALEX ROLLS NORMAN INTO THE CENTER OF THE RING – BUT WHAT IS ALEX DOING NOW?! HE WANTS NORMAN TO GET UP – HE WANTS TO END THIS NOW. HE WANTS THE ACE OF SPADES… AND HE WANTS THAT ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP… AND HERE WE GO! THE ACE OF SPADES LARIAT – THE ACE OF SPADES!!!
Mack: BUT NO! NORMAN DUCKS OUT OF THE WAY! HE TURNS ANDERSON AROUND — GRAPPLES HIM FROM BEHIND! THE GERMAN SUPLEX! BUT WAIT! ANDERSON ESCAPES OUT OF IT IN MID-AIR! HE LANDS ON HIS FEET, NORMAN TURNS AROUND! FLAPJACK! NORMAN CRUSHES TO THE CANVAS, BUT HE IS QUICK TO GET BACK UP BEFORE ANDERSON CAN TURN IT INTO AN ECLIPSE… ANDERSON RUNS AT HIM! NO – NO EUROPEAN UPPERCUT! SHADES OF HIS FELLOW TEAMMATE! BUT NO! THAT’S REVERSED INTO A FLOAT-OVER DDT! MY GOODNESS! ANDERSON’S OBVIOUSLY DONE HIS FAIR SHARE OF THE SCOUTING REPORT! NOW WHAT DOES HE HAVE PLANNED HERE… HE WAITS FOR NORMAN TO GET BACK ON HIS FEET — SUPERKICK!!! BUT NORMAN COMES OUT OF NOWHERE – LIFTS ANDERSON UP BY HIS GUT — MAH GAWDNESS! MAH GAWDNESS! THE GUTRENCH POWERBOMB! IT CONNECTS – AND ANDERSON’S BODY JUST CRACKLES AGAINST THAT CANVAS!
Ryder: Now what is Norman doing?! He climbs to the top rope – in the midst of all this chaos and carnage!! What in the world does he have planned?! HE CLIMBS TO THE TOP ROPE – BUT WAIT! WAIT! ALEX ANDERSON IS UP ON HIS FEET, AS HE LEAPS TOWARDS NORMAN! HE SURPRISED NORMAN – AS NOW THEY ARE EXCHANGING BLOWS ON TOP OF THE TURNBUCKLE! ALEX HOOKS NORMAN’S ARM — IS HE GOING FOR A SUPERPLEX? NO – HE DOESN’T HAVE THE STRENGTH… HURRICANRANA! HURRICANRANA! BUT NO – NORMAN BATTLES OUT OF IT, AS HE HEADBUTTS ALEX, ALMOST KNOCKING HIM OFF COMPLETELY! BUT NOW NORMAN, USING HIS STRENGTH AS AN ALLY… MAH GOODNESS – HE LIFTS ALEX UP! A SIT-OUT POWERBOMB FROM THE TOP ROPE! ANDDDD ANDERSON GOES CRASHING TO THE CANVAS! WHAT A MASSACRE! NORMAN HOPS OFF – THE COVER! MAH GAWD THIS HAS TO BE IT!
Ref: ONEEEE! TWOOOOO!!!!! THRE —
Mack: BUT ALEX KICKS OUT! HOW DID HE EVEN DO THAT?! NORMAN IS SHOCKED AND AWED – BUT HE’S NOT GOING TO BITCH AND MOAN. NORMAN IMMEDIATELY PICKS ANDERSON UP FROM THE CANVAS — THE FRACTURED INTENT! THE FRACTURED INTENT JACKHAMMER! IT CONNECTS! WE HAVE A COVER!
REF: ONEEEEE! TWOOOOO! THREE!!!
Ryder: NO! NO THAT’S NOT THREE! THAT BROSKI KICKED OUT! ALEX ANDERSON KICKED OUT AND NORMAN ABSOLUTELY CANNOT BELIEVE IT! THIS MATCH LIVES ON! THE ACE LIVES ON! BUT NORMAN IS ALREADY SEIZING IN ANOTHER OPPORTUNITY TO END ALEX ANDERSON HERE… AS HE’S POUNDING AGAINST THE CANVAS WITH HIS FISTS… TEMPTING ALEX TO GET BACK ON HIS FEET… WE ALL KNOW WHAT’S COMING NOW! ALEX HAS THE POWER OF DISCUS COMING HIS WAY… HE GETS TO HIS FEET, TURNS AROUND! AND NORMAN CHARGES NORMAN CHARGES HIS WAY! THE DISCUS CLOTHESLINE! THE DISCUS CLOTHESLINE! IT CONNECTS! IT CONN — ON THE REFEREE MAH GAWD! ALEX ANDERSON DUCKED! NOW THE REFEREE IS DOWN AND OUT! NORMAN TURNS AROUND – LOW BLOW TO HELLION! THAT’S DESPERATION FOR YA! BUT THAT LET’S ANDERSON SET UP FOR THE ACE OF SPADES! THE ACE OF SPADES! BUT NO – NORMAN PUSHES ANDERSON AWAY – AND ANDERSON GOES CRUSHING DOWN TO THE OUTSIDE! BUT THAT DOESN’T MAKE MUCH OF A DIFFERENCE ANYWAY – AS THE REFEREE IS KNOCKED OUT!
Mack: BUT WAIT, WHAT’S HAPPENING?! THAT’S… THAT’S PSYCHO BRODY AND ERIK VANCE! WHAT IN THE WORLD ARE THEY DOING HERE? NORMAN LOOKS ON IN DISGUST… AS IF HE WEREN’T EXPECTING THIS HIMSELF. VANCE ORDERS BRODY TO PICK ANDERSON UP – AND HE COMPLIES! MAH GAWD! THE REFEREE ISN’T AWAKE TO SEE WHAT’S GOING ON – AND BRODY TAKES ADVANTAGE! THE SHOCK THERAPY! THE SHOCK THERAPY ON ANDERSON ON THE CONCRETE FLOOR! BRODY LOOKS PROUD OF HIMSELF – AS HE ROLLS ANDERSON BACK INTO THE RING! VANCE IS HOPEFUL THAT NORMAN TAKES ADVANTAGE OF THIS – AND LOOK… THE REFEREE IS WAKING TOO! ALL NORMAN HAS TO DO IS PIN! But what the hell is going on?!? It looks as if he’s arguing with himself! HE’S NOT WANTING TO PIN! HE DOESN’T WANT IT DONE THIS WAY… HE COWERS TO THE CANVAS AS HE SHAKES HIS HEAD PROFUSELY! PETER IS TAKING CONTROL OF NORMAN, FROM WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE TO ME… PETER USUALLY WINS OUT.
Ryder: Brody and Vance have finally left… but I don’t think Norman wanted them out there, or their assistance! Norman by no means took advantage! But it looks as if Norman has finally gathered himself together… He goes to And — MAH GAWD! MAH GAWD! MAH GAWD! THE ACE OF SPADES! THE ACE OF SPADES! THE ACE OF SPADES OF NO WHERE! IT CONNECTS! OUT OF NO WHERE! MAH GAWD, IT’S LIKE WHAT HAPPENED ON SHOWDOWN THIS PAST WEEK! DEJA VU! DEJA VU… ALEX IS ABOUT TO CONQUER NORMAN TWO WEEKS IN A ROW! WE HAVE A COVER BROSKIS, MAH GAWD!
REF: ONEEEEE! TWOOOOOOO! THREEEEEEEEEEE—
Mack: NO! NO! THE BEHEMOTH KICKS OUT! NORMAN KICKS OUT! ALEX ANDERSON IS APPALLED! HE CAN’T BELIEVE IT! ALEX ANDERSON LOOKS HOPELESS… BUT HE CAN’T STOP NOW. NOT WHEN HE HAS NORMAN ON THE ROPES! HERE WE GO – ANOTHER ACE OF SPADES! ANOTHER ACE OF SPACE! IT CONNECTS – BAH GAWD IT CONNE… NO NO I LIED! NORMAN HELLION TWISTS ALEX ANDERSON’S ARM IN MID-AIR! FLOATS OVER HIM… ANDERSON TURNS AROUND! DISCUS CLOTHESLINE! DISCUS CLOTHESLINE! MAH GAWD – ANDERSON’S HEAD PRACTICALLY FLEW OFF FROM THAT COLLISION. NORMAN COVERS OVER ALEX – IS THIS IT?!
REF: ONEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOOO! THREEEEEEE!
( DING! DING! DING! )
Ryder: Mah gawd! Norman Hellion just survived the hellacious turn of events! HE CONTINUES TO REIGN AS YOUR ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION! And not only that – he just took the ACE Championship with it!
RA: THE WINNER OF THIS MATCH… AND THE NEWWWWWWWWW ACE CHAMPION OF EAW… and STILLLLLL your Answers World Champion… NORMANNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN HELLLLLLLLIONNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN!!!!!
( The referee hands Norman both championship belts, as he falls to both knees in celebration, obviously still trying to recover from an exhausting match. The camera pans back to Anderson, as he is slowly making his way up the entrance ramp, not once turning his attention back to the ring. )
Mack: What a match! What a damn match by these two outstanding competititors! It definitely lived up to the billing – Alex Anderson came close tonight – but he paid the price for finishing second, instead of getting the job done! But by no means should he hold is head down after that performance – he went toe to toe with the most destructive man in this industry – and he ALMOST beat Norman at his OWN game… but sadly for Mr. Anderson, close is not close enough.
Ryder: Anderson just became a victim of his own ambition – but that’s only the look of it in hindsight. But let’s get back to Norman for a second – it looked as if he had this match lost. Lost when he didn’t want to rely on the help of fellow RAGNAROK member Psycho Brody – but he was able to kickout of the Ace of Spades – just like what happened on Showdown. That honestly felt like deja vu at the time, but Norman was quick to change the course of events! Norman REIGNS – AS YOUR ACE CHAMPION – AND THE ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION!
( Camera focuses in on Norman looking around in the center of the ring, as he has his tongue out, sweat dripping from his face, as the camera finally fades elsewhere, from the ring. )
( A highlight package is shown on the titantron of the 2-week tournament that took place on Voltage, Showdown, and Dynasty, as the announcers take control of the hype… )
Stew: Get ready folks because up next—wait, look in the crowd!
(The crowd begins to give a enormous boo as they heckle the man entering in their midst, EAW National Elite Champion Christopher Corrupt, as he makes his way through the people as he jumps the barricade and enters the arena. He snatches the microphone from the ring announcer beside him as he runs in the ring and enters it.)
Christopher Corrupt: This is a crime against humanity! This is an atrocity! This is an outrage and I will not have any of it! Monroe, Murrow, Crash, whoever it was, I want to personally protest against Elite Answers Wrestling for the fact that they have belittled their National Elite Champion by not having him be showcased on one of the premier shows of the year, King of Elite! How dare you even attempt to make this show have any sort of prestige or value within it without the great king of corruption and the best on the Dynasty roster as the National Elite Champion? How dare you overlook the greatness and splendor that I give unto these imbeciles even if they fail to comprehend it through their simpleton minds?
(Eventually, Quality Control begins to walk down the ramp as they begin to make their way towards Christopher Corrupt as the fans rejoice at his soon departure from interrupting the show.)
Christopher Corrupt: NO! You better stay away from me, you oafs! Remember what I did to Aren Mstislav, trust me that it will be the same to you if you lay your filthy ungrateful hands on me or my National Elite Championship! I have a message to spread, my message about how disgraceful our employers are to not place me in a show of this caliber! I am a champion and I deserve to be here, damn it!
(Suddenly, an uproar comes through the crowd as Aren Mstislav begins sprinting through the crowd and targets the man who has been a thorn on his side for far too long in the champion, Christopher Corrupt.)
Stew: AREN MSTISLAV! Aren is coming down, looking to bring down the hammer of justice on Corrupt! Corrupt turns… HE SEES MSTISLAV! AREN SLIDES IN THE RING!!!! BUT CORRUPT IS ABLE TO SLIDE OUT BEFORE MSTISLAV COULD TAKE HIM OUT!
Look at this now! Quality Control rushes into the ring as Aren starts to begin trying to chase Corrupt, as he is high-tailing it out of here! QUALITY CONTROL JUMPS ON AREN, TRYING TO CONTROL HIM, AS AREN IS LIKE A RABID DOG SCREAMING AT CORRUPT WITH SLURS AND SLANDER! …. You see though what Corrupt is doing to Aren! Corrupt is just holding the championship in the air as he makes his way out of the building! Corrupt is getting in the head of Aren and boy, would I say that I would be the same way if the championship was stolen from me by that man! It seems Aren Mstislav is finally being escorted out of the ring by Quality Control, but this right here is something that I am definitely wondering will play in the decision Sebastian Monroe must make next week!
( Historic video package of the past King Of Extreme winners plays, showcasing Mak, Robbie V/Mikado Sekaiichi, Power, Dark Demon and more, their highlights and career statistics are shown. Buildup package for the King Of Elite crown begins to play, emphasizing the transition to Elite along with the three finalists and Lord Paramount’s: Lannister, Devan Dubian and Jacob Senn. )
( Camera cuts back to the arena where the audience is waiting in anticipation. Camera cuts to an announce booth where Stew-O, Jake Mercer and Matt Ryder are seated )
Stew: Ladies and Gentlemen it is now time for the premiere match of the evening. Myself, along with Voltage’s Jake Mercer and Showdown’s Matt Ryder will be calling the rest of this show. Just what are we going to see here gentlemen?
Mercer: Expect it to be a dogfight, Stew. There’s a saying that goes “work like a slave to live like a king” and before any one of these combatants obtain any ounce of glory tonight, they’re gonna have to kill each other.
Ryder: Are you kidding? We’re gonna see three guys, relatively young guys fight for their LIVES, broski! Let’s do this!
( “Crown” by Jay-Z picks backs up as all the lights in the arena begin to focus on a portion of the stage. A throne begins to rise from underneath the stage, and on the seat rests a glorious golden crown, partially stylized as a laurel wreath in tribute to Apollo with the words “King Of Elite” branded on it. )
Ring Announcer: It is now time for the 2015 KING OF ELITE FINALLLS MATCH! This bout will be contested under one fall and is a TRIPLE THREAT MATCH! The first man to get the pin fall or submission will be crowned the NEW KING OF EAW! As long as the winner is King, in their hands is an opportunity at any Championship match of his choosing at any date!
( “My Demons” by Starset hits as Jacob Senn walks out from the back, putting on his ring gloves and shaking off the nerves as he looks around the packed O.A.K.A Stadium and looks at the throne along with the shining crown that sits next to it. He heads to the ring full of adrenaline. )
Ring Announcer: Introducing first.. from CHICAGO, ILLINOIS WEIGHING 205 POOOOUNDDSS… HE IS THE LORD PARAMOUNT REPRESENTING DYNASTY… JAAACCOOOOOOOOOOOOBBBB SSSSSEEEEEEEEEENNNNNNN!!!!
Stew: Jacob Senn just ended an EAW Championship reign he should be proud of. He took on all challenges, he put on incredible matches with Brian Daniels, Dark Demon, Scott Diamond.. but that was simply the first phase of his prime. The Fabled Conqueror who represents Dynasty KNOWS that with this King Of Elite crown he can pick up where he left off and on his path to being one of the greatest competitors EAW has ever seen!
( “This Means War” by Avenged Sevenfold hits as Devan Dubian comes out from the back, pumping himself up. He makes his way down the ramp with a look of focus and intensity in his cold eyes. )
Ring Announcer: Next up.. from LEICESTER, ENGLAND, weighing in at 230 POOOUNNDSSSS.. HE IS THE LORD PARAMOUNT OF SHOWDOWN… DEEEVAAAAAAAANNNN DUUUUUUUUUBIAAAAAAANNNNNN!!!!
Ryder: Let me tell you broskis something, this man right here, this man Devan Dubian has been unstoppable! He’s beaten everyone in his way, he’s stood down to absolutely nobody! Unlike Senn, who beat nobodies to get here, and Lannister, who got here on technicalities, this man has run through his competition! And when he wins the King Of Elite crown, Showdown will proudly embrace this guy as our King, our Lord and Savior! You know it!
( “Feuer Frei” by Rammstein plays as Lannister walks out from the back accompanied by Cercei, and at the stage he stares down with his opponents in the ring. He pumps himself up and walks to the ring hulking up, energized by the atmosphere )
Ring Announcer: And finally… from DORTMUND, GERMAN weighing in tonight at 114 KILOGRAMS…. HE IS THE LORD PARAMOUNT OF VOLTAAGEEE…. LLLLLLAAAAAANNNISTEEEEEEEEERR!!!!
Mercer: What’s my case for Lannister becoming the new King Of Elite? Look at him! LOOK AT HIM! The man is the model of efficiency, and this audience, this proud European audience have embraced this man as they should! Sebastian Lannister in his few months of being here in EAW has absolutely torn up the scene. He’s made a resounding impact, and I’m convinced NO ONE in this company can stand up to him!
( Lannister smirks, looking at his two opponents while the referee pats them down for weapons. Jacob Senn stands at a corner warming up shooting intense daggers through the hair slightly covering his eyes. The ref calls for the bell. )
( Ding! Ding! Ding! )
Stew: The 2015 King Of Elite FINALS are underway as we begin this contest with a stalemate… three men who’ve gone through the best of their roster now must clash for arguably the richest prize in all of EAW. The three of them close in… and DUBIAN GOES RIGHT TO WORK ON LANNISTER. NO LOVE LOSS BETWEEN DEVAN DUBIAN AND SEBASTIAN LANNISTER, WITH BAD BLOOD STEMMING FROM THEIR RAGNAROK VS ELITE FEUD! The two of them trade body shots and forearms to the face while Senn watches idly by, and Lannister gets repeated forearms in a row to the face! HE HOOKS DUB FROM BEHIND FOR THE GERMAN SUPLEX!
Mercer: GERMAN SUPLEX LANDS RIGHT ON THE PROPPED UP KNEE OF JACOB SENN! Dub sits up holding his neck in pain and Senn locks in the bow & arrow submission as Lannister bounces off the ropes and hits a BOOT to the face!
Ryder: These cheating assholes are working together! Not cool, bro!
Mercrer: Lannister and Senn stomp on the fallen Devan Dubian from each side! Dub taking abuse here in the early going, but Senn kicks Lannister in the gut and hits a QUICK POWERBOMB RIGHT ONTO DUB’S MIDSECTION! And Senn bridges the pin!
Ref: OOOOONNE… TWOOOO,
Mercer: Both Dub and Lannister kick out of that. Looks like they aren’t working for each other after all Ryder, it’s every man for himself. Dubian recovering while Jacob Senn takes Lannister to the corner and hits shoot kicks to the chest! Senn stomps into the gut and hits repeated stomps into the chest of Lannister, now crouched at the corner. But Lannister yanks Senn by his tights through the ropes, out of the ring and rises… but gets hit with a NASTY CORNER CLOTHESLINE BY DUBIAN! Lannister’s reeling, and Dubian takes Lannister across the ring and tosses him through the ropes to the outside right before us at ringside. Jacob Senn rushes in the ring and runs to Dubian… BUT DUB YANKS DOWN THE RING ROPES, AND SENN HITS A SWANTON TO THE OUTSIDE ON A STANDING LANNISTER, TAKING HIM DOWN!
Ryder: BEEEAUTIFUL! No, not Senn, that counter from Dubian.. that was, dare I say, Amazing. Speaking of which, Dub looks like he’s waiting for his opponents to come to. HEY LOOK, DUB BACKS UP ON THE ROPES BEHIND HIM AND DARTS ACROSS THE RING FOR THE SUICIDE DIVE! OH LANNISTER CUTS HIM OFF WITH A BLOW TO THE FACE! THAT SENDS HIM BACK INTO THE RING! And SENN WITH THE ROUNDHOUSE on Lannister! Lannister dodges that, grabs Senn… OVERHEAD RELEASE BELLY TO BELLY SENDS HIM FLINGING RIGHT INTO OUR ANNOUNCE TABLE! SENN CRASHES RIGHT INTO STEW! STEW ARE YOU OKAY?
Mercer: Stew seems to have taken a bit of a spill here, but have no fear because my unbiased commentary will cover this. BRILLIANT BRILLIANT SEQUENCE BY LANNISTER, THE TRUE KING OF EAW! Lannister charges into the ring and grabs Dubian… RELEASE GERMAN SUPLEX SENDS DUBIAN ACROSS THE RING! That had him rocking, and Lannister instead of covering him grabs Dub back up and goes for another German! But Dubian clips the leg, stopping the lift and hits elbows to the jaw, twirls behind Lannister for the neckbreaker perhaps … No, Lannister spins again and lifts Dub for the POP UP EUROPEAN UPPERCUT!!! FEUER FREI — NO, IN MID AIR DUBIAN COUNTERS INTO A DROPKICK!
Ryder: AMAZING COUNTER! Lannister hits the mat hard and rolls back up to his feet and Dub sends him outside with a clothesline! Now Dub runs the ropes again, looking for another try… SUICIDE DIVE THROUGH THE ROPES, AND LIKE A MISSILE HE HITS LANNISTER SENDING HIM CRASHING KIDNEY FIRST INTO THE BARRICADE! Devan Dubian and Lannister both seated against the barricade, both recuperating from their bodies meeting and crashing at 100 miles per hour… hey Stew you good?
Stew: Yeah, just needed a Z Pack, I think I’m good to go. Jacob Senn returns to action after being sent for a ride by that powerful move by Lannister, as he’s in the ring waiting for Dubian to get back in… Dub carefully tries to enter the ring unscathed, but Senn tee’s off with kicks to any open part of the body and hammers shots on the head and back of his opponent! Senn whips Dubian to the ropes, Dub ricochets.. PICTURE PERFECT DROPKICK! Dub already on his knees trying to rush up, STEP-UP ENZIGURI by Senn followed by a STANDING SSP, AND HOOK OF BOTH LEGS!
Ref: OOOOONEEE!! TWOOOOOOOO…
Mercer: Kick out by Dubian. Lannister enters the ring, but Senn has it scouted.. SHOOT KICK to the chest from Senn and a ROUNDHOUSE ATTEMPTED! Lannister ducks that and drives Senn to the corner, repeatedly ramming the shoulder to the gut! Senn being tortured by these shoulders as he can barely respond and Lannister backs up across the ring and SPRINTS TO HIS OPPONENT — Senn cuts him off with a kick to the face! And Senn comes out of the corner hooking Lannister for a standing neckbreaker! In comes Dubian, but Senn kicks Dub in the gut and pulls him in for a DDT! NECKBREAKER/DDT COMBO BY JACOB SENN! Now a hook of the leg on Lannister!
Ref: OOONEEEEE!! TWOOOOOOOOO!
Stew: KICK OUT by Lannister. You have to admit that was damn good, Jake. Senn’s in a zone right now, and smartly he grabs Lannister and tosses him through the ropes, out of the ring. Senn focuses on Dub now as he picks him up from the ground and pulls him in…. and hits a RUNNING POWERBOMB INTO THE CORNER! DUB STUMBLES OUT OF THE CORNER CROUCHED OVER, AND SENN RICOCHETS OFF THE ROPES FOR THE HARMONIC DIVERGENCE!!
Ryder: CURB STOMP NEGATED AS DUB COUNTERS WITH A SWIFT SPINNING SCOOP SLAM! AMAZINGGG counter by Devan Dubian, and both of them are recovering… but outside of the ring, Lannister drags Jacob Senn while holding his head in pain and hits the SCOOP SLAM RIGHT TO THE KNEE! And Lannister grabs Senn again and hits the BACK SUPLEX RIGHT ONTO THE BARRICADE, LEAVING SENN LAID OUT ON THE ‘CADE!
Mercer: The ruthless German tank strikes again! Lannister enters the ring now, waiting for Dubian to rise …. he does … and LANNISTER GOES FOR ANOTHER GERMAN SUPLEX! But Dub breaks the waistlock and spins behind Lannister… OLYMPIC SLAM CONNECTS! SHADES OF HIS FORMER MENTOR STARR STAN! AND DUBIAN IMMEDIATELY SNAPS IN THE ANKLE LOCK FOR GOOD MEASURE, AND GRAPEVINES IT! DO SOMETHING LANNISTER, IT CAN’T END THIS WAY!
Stew: Lannister doing his best to crawl to the ropes… But Jacob Senn slowly enters the ring, gingerly while holding his back… Senn trying to keep himself mobile — OHH AND AFTER SENN FINALLY GETS IN, SENN LOCKS IN A MODIFIED WILLBREAKER! SENN SEATED ON THE BACK WITH A DRAGONS SLEEPER LOCKED IN! LANNISTER’S IN A TOUGH PREDICAMENT HERE, HE’S BEING TORTURED BY HIS TWO OPPONENTS AFTER BEING CAUGHT IN THE WRONG PLACE, WRONG TIME. I THINK LANNISTERS ABOUT TO TAP!! But Dubian, looking to avoid confusion breaks the ankle lock and strikes Senn right in the back as Senn is favoring his back! Dubian grabs Senn and hits a BACKBREAKER! RIGHT to the knee goes the spine and Dubian hits a back suplex as Senn lets out a yell in pain, holding his spine!
Ryder: Rookie mistake, Broski. Senn just exposed his weakness and he’s gonna pay for that! Good old Dubian runs the ropes and hits a SICK knee drop to the back! Dubian sees a big, red target on Jacob Senn’s back and he now climbs up the corner and leaps off… DOUBLE FOOT STOMP TO THE SPINE FROM THE SECOND ROPE! Jacob Senn’s being worn out now… noow Dubian pulls Senn up and FLOORS HIM WITH THE OLYMPIC SLAM!
Mercer: Senn taking some punishment to the back, an extremely intelligent opening Dubian’s created to open up a weakness, a hole in Senn’s game. This’ll take the mobility right out of him. Senn rolls to the apron… and Dubian’s waiting for Senn to get back up, I don’t know what’s in his head but whatever it is it isn’t good. Jacob Senn’s just about back up to his feet and Dub goes charging at him.. but SENN HITS AN APRON ROUNDHOUSE! Senn holding his back after pulling that move out of nowhere and HERE COMES LANNISTER BARRELING OUT OF NOWHERE FOR THE RUNNING FEUER FREI!!!!!!!!!!! — BUT DUBIAN JUMPS OUT OF THE WAY AND JACOB TAKES THE BRUNT OF THAT, BEING SENT RIGHT ONTO THE BOTTOM OF THE RAMP WITH THAT VICIOUS MOVE!!!!
Stew: This is bad!
Ryder: Yeah, for YOU! AND FOR LANNISTER, DUBIAN’S STALKED, LANNISTER’S UNAWARE, HE TURNS AROUND… BLEEDING EDGE!!!!!!!!!! JUMPING CUTTER ON LANNISTER!! — WHAT!?!? LANNISTER CATCHES HIS BODY IN MIDAIR AND FLIPS HIM OVER FOR THE POP-UP FEUER FRE!!!!!I!!!! … I….. I’VE NEVER…
Mercer: THATS RIGHT BITCHES!!!!!! LANNISTER IS THE KING OF ELITE!!!!!!! HOOK OF THE LEG!
Ref: OOOOONEEEEEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOO!!! THREEEEEEEEEEE–
Stew: DEVAN DUBIAN KICKS OUT AT THE LAST MILLISECOND!
Ryder: YES!!! YES!!! WOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! DUBIAN SURVIVES! That could have been all she wrote, but Devan Dubian refused to let himself fall to that bald headed freak!
Mercer: Easy now. Dubian’s still been turned inside out and Lannister, as frustrated as he may look still has plenty more where that came from. Lannister shoots a half nelson… and now YANKS DUBIAN UP, LOCKING IN THE BLOOD MONEY!!!!! HE’S GOT THAT FULL NELSON CLINCHED IN TIGHT, AND HE’S SWINGING AROUND HIS OPPONENT!!!! The ref monitoring Dubian, if Dubian passes out this thing’s over —
Stew: DUBIAN SWINGS HIS HEEL INTO THE GROIN OF LANNISTER, AND ROLLS THROUGH THE HOLD TO ESCAPE IT!!! Dubian stretching the rules of this triple threat contest, there is no Disqualification so technically he can’t be penalized for it! Dubian’s on all fours still definitely reeling from the Feur Frei… Lannister gets back up, trying to shake off the damage of that desperate move and he comes right back at Dubian.. but Dubian takes Lannister into the corner and hits several harsh European Uppercuts! Dub kind of sluggish going into this, he’s still trying to shake off the Feuer Frei. Lannister fires back with a right, but Dubian hits a few punches as well. Slowly but surely Dub brings Lannister up to the top rope, and follows him up top! Dubian stands himself and Lannister up, it looks like he wants the SUPERPLEX!! … But Lannister’s fighting it off with blows to the ribs, and LANNISTER gets control of the vertical suplex as he drops Dub onto the ring apron! Lannister adjusts himself and stands at the top rope as he lifts Dub for the DEADLIFT VERTICAL SUPERPLEX!!!!! YOU’VE GOTTA BE KIDDING ME!!!!!
Ryder: LOOK!!! FROM IN THE RING THERE’S JACOB SENN!!! HE HOOKS LANNISTER FOR THE POWERBOMB…. TOWER OF DOOM POWERBOMB/DEADLIFT SUPERPLEX COMBO SENDS LANNISTER AND DEVAN DUBIAN CRASHING IN THE RING!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AND SENN HOLDS LANNISTER FOR THE PIN!
Ref: OOOOONEEEE!! TWOOOOOOO… THRR…
Mercer: KICK OUT! Lannister survives, and the man is already getting up for gods sakes! He was powerbombed from the top but is still trying to shake it off, and Senn knows this as he’s picking his spot for the HARMONIC DIVERGENCE!!!!!! NO, CURB STOMP INTERCEPTED BY THE FOREARM! Senn managed to block some of it, but he was still caught and turns around in pain as Lannister hooks him from behind… REAR BELLY TO BELLY OVERHEAD RELEASE SUPLEX! No, Senn lands on his feet! Lannister getting cocky, taunting to the crowd, but Jacob Senn swings him around and hits a right to the face, followed by two punches, a shoot kick, spinning backfist and a HUUGE LARIAT …. Lannister ducks that lariat and from behind hits a LUNGBLOWER! Pain SHOOTING through Senn’s spine that’s taken abuse, and he rushes to the corner trying to heal his back as Lannister follows through, approachng his opponent… SENN SPRINGBOARDS ON THE NEARBY ROPES! But Senn slips through the ropes, his back pain is too much for him to even properly springboard, and Lannister battering rams fists into Senn’s chest as his torso is caught between the 2nd and 3rd ropes!
Stew: Senn counters, manages to stun gun Lannister with the ropes! The Fabled Conqueror’s clinging to this match by a thread, he sits on the apron holding his back, trying to stretch it out and get fresh again. It’s gotta be so had to move with a messed up back, but he’s still willing himself on.. Senn heads up the turnbuckle slowly, there’s high risk and high reward in that department and LANNISTER COMES CHARGING AT HIM WITH THE RUNNING FEUER FREI!!!!!!!!! BUT NO, SENN HOPS OVER AND BEHIND LANNISTER! DEVAN DUBIAN COMES CHARGING AT SENN, but Senn evasive rolls out of the way and goes for the PELE KICK!!! Dub dodges it and hits a big STOMP to the spine of Senn, and follows through with repeated stomps to the SPINE, TORTURING that back of Jacob Senn’s!
Ryder: Lannister shoves Dub out of the way… and hits his OWN stomps onto Senn’s spine, and quickly locks in the Camel Clutch!!! Jacob Senn’s been brought to the brink here and I don’t know if he can keep taking this abuse on his back for much longer! Senn is trying to drag himself to the ropes for a rope break… but Dubian breaks the hold by hitting a LOUD kick into the spine of Lannister! Lannister releases the hold and hits a CHEST CHOP, and Dub responds with a forearm! Lannister with a forearm! These two hopeful Kings Of Elite reply with more forearms to the face, slow, timely, calculated blows! Lannister side-steps one of Dub’s forearms and hits an arm-wrench LARIAT, BUT DUB DUCKS UNDER IT AND GOES FOR THE BLEEDING EDGE!!!!!!!!!! … BUT HOLY CRAP!! LANNISTER MANAGES TO CATCH HIM IN MID AIR AGAIN!! DOES THIS GUY’S STRENGTH HAVE ANY LIMITS!!!?? HE’S GOING FOR THAT POP UP FEUER FREI AGAIN!!!!!
Mercer: NO, JACOB SENN NAILS LANNISTER WITH THE SUPERKICK!!!! Dubian backrolls to his feet and charges towards Senn, Senn ducks and hits a SUPERKICK ON DUBIAN!!! Two NASTY, NASTY kicks! Dub backpedals to the corner to save the fall and Lannister is recuperating at the corner on the other side of the ring… now Senn goes full speed and hits a RUNNING DROPKICK to the cornered Dub! Senn charges to the other side of the ring… RUNNING DROPKICK ON LANNISTER! AND NOW A RUNNING DROPKICK ON DUB AGAI– DUB COUNTERS WITH A DROPKICK OF HIS OWN! Lannister comes stumbling out of the corner now and Dubian takes Lannister and DRIVES HIM shoulder first into the steel ringpost! That shoulder hits unforgiving steel, and the steel wins every time. Dubian’s got this ring well scouted, he knows where everything is and when to use it, I’ll give him that.
Stew: Dubian’s a ring general, maybe thanks to Starr Stan’s guidance in his early career but right now he’s outside the ring looking for something. He’s pulled the steep steps out of the corner and drags them out of place. Dub now climbs up the steel steps and has an elevated platform as he drags Lannister out of the corner… pulls him and HE WANTS THE ROPE HUNG DDT INTO THOSE STEEL STEPS!!!!!! … But Lannister’s fighting it off, dragging himself back in the ring…. WHAT IN THE WORLD….. Jacob Senn jumps OVER LANNISTER AND OVER THE RING ROPES FROM OUT OF NOWHERE AS HE TAKES DUBIAN DOWN AND OUT FOR THE FOSBURY FLOP!!!!!!!!!!! INCREDIBLE DIVE BY JACOB SENN!!!!!!
Mercer: OH WOW!!! … HOW?? HOW DOES A GUY WHO’S HAD HIS BACK TARGETED ALL NIGHT DO THAT?
Stew: JACOB SENN JUMPED OVER A GROWN MAN SO SMOOTHLY AND TOOK DUB OUT!! Senn’s going all out tonight, despite the target literally on his back, he’s pulling off incredible maneuvers like this and he’s not finished.. he’s returning to the ring, climbing up the turnbuckle while Lannister shakes off that nagging shoulder pain… and Senn leaps! But LANNISTER CATCHES HIM ON HIS SHOULDERS IN THE ELECTRIC CHAIR DROP POSITION… and PUSHES HIM UP OFF HIS SHOULDERS, TURNS WHILE SENN IS IN MIDAIR AND HITS THE POP-UP POWERBOMB FROM THE ELECTRIC CHAIR DROP POSITION!!!!!!
Ryder: GROWN MAN MOVE BY LANNISTER!!!!! HE PINS!
Ref: OOOOOONEEE!! … TWOOOOOOOOOO!! ….
Ryder: Senn kicks out of that, BARELY.
( Dubian can be seen at ringside recovering with a gash down the middle of his back )
Ryder: Dubian’s at ringside getting it together… he was clearly cut by those ring steps during that landing, come back in, we need you Dubby! Lannister hooks Senn and hits the Gutwrench Suplex! And Lannister upon hitting it gator rolls to his feet and hits the VERTICAL Suplex! Lannister gator rolls to his feet again and hits the BELLY TO BELLY SUPLEX! Hook of both legs!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOONE!! …. TWOOOOOOOO!!
Mercer: Kick out again. Lannister slowly drags Jacob Senn up with a front waistlock… and OVERHEAD RELEASE BELLY TO BELLY HITS!!! Senn sent crashing onto his spine, and Senn’s rocking in pain! Lannister absolutely decimating the so-called “Fabled Conqueror”, and to think Lannister was hired to keep this guy as EAW Champon! Lannister scoops up a rather motionless Jacob Senn again for the front waistlock… ANOTHER OVERHEA– no, Senn countering with rapidfire forearms, stopping Lannister from throwing him across the ring with that deadly force.. and Senn hits a back kick! But right after Lannister’s hit with the back kick, Lannister hits a forearm to the spine and presses Senn to the corner and rolls back for the rolling German Suplex, but Senn hangs on to the corner as Lannister rolls back. Senn springs to the middle rope, to the top rope and hits a BEAUTIFUL CROSSBODY PIN!!
Ref: OOOOOONEEEE!!! .. TWOOOOOOOO!!!
Stew: LANNISTER KICKS OUT. Senn couldn’t get that pin tight enough, but Senn struggles to pull Lannister up… he eventually does and nails the NORTHERN LIGHTS SUPLEX, AND BRIDGES THE PIN.
Ref: OOOONEEE!!! .. TWOOOOOOO!!!
Stew: DUBIAN breaks the pin with a back senton right into the bridged Senn! Dubian now rains down an assault of fists on Jacob Senn, perhaps angered after being hit with that devastating Fosbury Flop! Dubian hits knees to the shoulders, knees to the skull and mounts over Senn… Senn pushes Dub off with his legs and returns to his feet, but Dub sends him back down with the Thez Press and assaults him further with rights and lefts! Dub drags Senn to the corner and bashes his face into the turnbuckle, spreads Senn out and hits a SICKENING KNIFE EDGED CHOP TO THE CHEST. A forearm follows up to the face and ANOTHER chop hits the chest! Dub takes Senn out of the corner with the irish whip, but Senn counters by dropping to the mat and hitting a leapfrog, sending Dub up and crashing to the canvas! Both men recover now and SENN LOOKS FOR THE CURB STOMP!!!!!! But Dub averts disaster, catches and hoists Senn onto his shoulder for the firemans carry!
Ryder: LOOK AT LANNISTER, HE HOISTS DUBIAN ONTO HIS SHOULDERS FOR THE ELECTRIC CHAIR DROP AS DUB CARRIES SENN ON HIS SHOULDERS!!!!!!! YOU CAN’T BE SERIOUS, LANNISTER JUST LIFTING TWO MEN AT ONCE!!! AND LANNISTER DROPS THEM WITH THE ELECTRIC CHAIR DROP!!!!! … BUT WAIT, AS LANNISTER FALLS BACK JACOB SENN IN MID AIR HITS THE WEST COAST POP SENDING DUB OFF LANNISTER’S SHOULDERS! THE COORDINATION NEEDED FOR THAT IS UNCANNY, SENN FOLLOWS UP WITH THE PIN!
Ref: OOONNNEEEE!! TWOOOOOO!!
Mercer: LANNISTER BREAKS IT UP AND PULLS JACOB SENN IN, HOISTS HIM UP GOING FOR THE BROKEN CROWN!!!!!!!!! …… OH OH OH OH MY GOD LANNISTER SENDS SENN FLYING ACROSS THE RING LANDING ON THE BACK OF HIS HEAD!!!!!!!!!!! UGH HOLY CRAP! JACOB SENN HAS BEEN FOLDED UP LIKE AN ACCORDION! AND SENN’S MOMENTUM TAKES HIM OUT OF THE RING BEFORE LANNISTER GETS THE CHANCE TO COVER!
( A few officials at ringside take a look at Jacob Senn as they see him unconscious at the ringside floor )
Stew: I think I’m gonna be sick….. Officials taking a look, rightfully so, that was one of the nastiest landings I’ve ever seen taken! And Lannister seems like he’s ready to step out of the ring and inflict even MORE damage, but DUBIAN FROM THE GROUND SNATCHES LANNISTER BY THE ANKLE AND TRAPS LANNISTER WITH THE ANKLE LOCK!!!!! DUBIAN GETS THAT MOVE LOCKED IN ON LANNISTER AGAIN! DEVAN DUBIAN WILL NOT LET GO, LANNISTER’S CLINGING TO THE ROPES FOR DEAR LIFE, BUT DUB’S GOT THIS GRAPEVINED ANKLE LOCK SYNCHED IN! Lannister now trying to claw OUTSIDE the ring, but Dubian’s hanging on to his every being trying DESPERATELY to SNAP Lannister’s ankle! On this quest to become King, Dubian will stop at absolutely nothing!
Ryder: After a moment the AMAZING Dubian finally lets go as Lannister is hanging halfway out the ring. Dubian drags Lannister back in.. but he eats a kick to the face with the free boot of Lannister. Lannister tries to get up, but you can tell by the limp that the ankle lock did a number on him.. now Dub runs at Lannister but Lannister COUNTERS FOR THE BLACK HOLE SLAM!!!! –.. BUT MID-SWING DUBIAN COUNTERS FOR THE BLEEDING EDGE!!!!!!!!!!!! HE GOT IT!!!! HOOK OF THE LEG!!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOONEE!!! …. TWOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! … THRRRRRRRRRR
Mercer: KICK!! OUT!!! LANNISTER ISN’T FINISHED YET, MATTY BOY!
( A replay of the counter shows, along with a split screen of Jacob Senn slowly trying to recover at ringside and just barely getting to his feet with apron support, still dazed. )
Stew: HEART PUMPING SEQUENCE! Devan Dubian found an INCREDIBLE counter and nearly ended this, but Lannister keeps this match alive! What a damn match, what a night, this is why the best of the best call EAW their home, and these three men will do ANYTHING to rule it as the King Of Elite! Dubian’s slowly dragging himself up to his feet… and he backs into the corner LOCKED IN on his opponent……… DUBIAN’S GONNA FINISH THIS WITH THE LAST RESORT!!!!!!!!!!!! THIS IS IT, THIS IS ALL DUB HAS LEFT! DUB WAITING ON LANNISTER TO GET TO ALL FOURS, BECAUSE THIS IS DO OR DIE! AND DUB GOES CHARGING FOR THE PUNT KICK!!!! …..
Mercer: WHAAAAM!!! JACOB SENN FROM THE TOP ROPE HITS A BARBEDWIRE STEEL CHAIR CHAIR SURF CRASHING RIGHT INTO DEVAN DUBIAN!!!!!!!! DUBIAN SENT ACROSS THE RING!!!! HOW IS JACOB SENN BACK IN THIS!? .. Senn is on one knee panting from pure exhaustion and Senn drags Lannister… HOOKS HIM AND HITS THE JACOB’S LADDER RIGHT INTO THE BARBEDWIRE CHAIR!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LANNISTER’S BODY PLANTED INTO THE CHAIR WITH THE STYLES CLASH, SWEET JESUS!!!! THE INTENSITY JUST RAISED BY A TRILLION!!!! SENN IS PANTING JUST MOVING, BUT HE’S STILL RUNNING OH NO… OH NO SENN RUNS THE ROPES…. HARMONIC DIVERGENCE ON LANNISTER INTO THE CHAIR!!!!!!!
Ryder: WHAT THE HELL?!?!??! LANNISTER POPS JACOB SENN UP AND SENN IS FLAPJACKED FACE FIRST INTO THE BARBEDWIRE CHAIR…. WH.. HOW— SENN IS ON HIS KNEES WITH HIS EYES PRACTICALLY ROLLED BACK IN HIS SKULL, LANNISTER BACKS UP….. RUNNING FEUER FREI!!!!!!!!!!! TAKING SENNS HEAD OFF!!! YOU’VE GOTTA BE JOKING!!!
( Lannister and Senn both lay completely winded while a bloodied Devan Dubian is at the corner panting and exhausted. )
Mercer: HOLY SURGE!!! LANNISTER WAS JUST HIT WITH THE FREAKING STYLES CLASH, AND IT SOMEHOW DIDN’T KNOCK HIM OUT! ALL THREE COMBATANTS ARE COMPLETELY SPENT!
( Jacob Senn, after a moment is the first to begin to stir, but camera transitions to Dubian at the corner )
Mercer: AND LOOK… LOOK AT DUBIAN! DUBIAN AT THE CORNER IS COVERED IN BLOOD FROM THAT CHAIR, HE’S BANGED UP, BUT HE’S SOMEHOW CROUCHING, DAZED, GLAZED OVER, WAITING FOR HIS SPOT…. AND JACOB SENN JUST MAKES AN ATTEMPT AT GETTING UP .. HERE’S HIS LAST CHANCE, LAST RESORT!!!!!!!
Stew: LANNISTER SURGES TO HIS FEET AND HITS A JUMPING FEUER FREI OVER SENN ON DUBIAN!!!!!!!!!!!!! MOTHER OF GOD!!!! DUBIAN DECAPITATED!!! LANNISTER COLLAPSES OVER HIS OPPONENT AND HOOKS BOTH LEGS!!
Ref: OOOOOOONEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!

( “Feuer Frei” hits. )
Ring Announcer: HERE IS YOUR WINNER … AND THE 2015 KING OF ELITE… LLLLLLLLLLAAAAANNNNNISSTTTEEEEEEEEEEERRRRRR!!!!
( Cersei enters the ring, jumping for joy and hugging Lannister who can barely respond to his victory )
Stew: LANNISTER SEIZES THE WIN, LANNISTER HAS BECOME THE KING OF ELITE, EAW IS UNDER SEIGE OF LANNISTER!!
Mercer: THAT’S RIGHT! VOLTAGE HAS BECOME THE NEW KING’S LANDING, LANNISTER GETS TO SIT ON THE IRON THRONE AND RULE OVER EXTREME ANSWERS WESTEROS BECAUSE HE IS THE KING!! KING OF ELITE!!!! I DON’T EVEN THINK LANNISTER KNOWS WHERE HE IS OR WHAT HE’S DONE… INCREDIBLE PERFORMANCE BY LANNISTER, HITTING THOSE TWO DECAPITATING FEUER FREI’S AT THE END!
( Lannister finally brings himself up to stand. The referee raises his arm and several of the crown keepers hand Lannister the crown as Lannister lets out a victory yell with Cersei applauding in the background. )
Ryder: I.. I’m still stunned. This man is–
Mercer: THIS IS NOT A MAN, THIS IS A MACHINE! THIS IS YOUR KING! WORSHIP HIM, KISS HIS FEET MATT RYDER!
( Jacob Senn is seen laying in defeat, looking up at Lannister celebrating with his crown. Dubian is being tended to by officials, and outside the ring at the bottom of the ramp servants are carrying Lannister’s throne on a platform. )
( Replays show Lannister being hit with the Jacob’s Ladder, but still somehow popping up to floor Senn with the Feuer Frei, along with Lannister hitting the same move on Dubian for the win. Camera transitions back to Lannister, who sits at his throne being carried by servants and he places the crowd on his head with a tilt )
Stew: The coronation begins for the King Of Elite! We want to thank you for being a part of the 7th Annual King of Elite! It’s YOU who made this show a success, but on this night Lannister took success into his own hands and now he has the wrestling world in his hands!
Mercer: TUNE IN TO VOLTAGE TO SEE THE CORONATION CONTINUE! I’LL DO THE HONORS, GOODNIGHT! FROM ATHENS!
( Lannister is being carried up the ramp with servants and fanfare with trumpets playing in his celebration as the camera fades to black. )
