( A collection of clips showing off the scenic French countryside and various castles and chateaus plotting the vast landscape. There is no music, only the sounds of nature: birds chirping, rushing waters in a stream, and so on.)
“In the days of the Ancien Regime, France and many places in Europe and around the globe were ruled by kings, monarchs beyond reproach, given the responsibility to rule, many believed, by Divine Right. There were many good, noble kings. But there were also many bad ones. Horrible tyrants who did nothing for their people, breaking away from their deities, their gods, and letting their empires and kingdoms and caliphates run astray….”
(Soon, the peaceful images are replaced with scenes of a revolution: burning cities, soldiers clashing, people shouting in the streets. Eventually, a man, dressed in fine clothing with the demeanor and arrogance of a nobleman is led to a town square, angry villagers throwing trash at him as he marches towards his fate: The Guillotine. The actual execution cannot be seen, but the sight of the blade dropping and the crowd cheering in excitement is.)
“Needless to say, sooner or later, the people figured out that “divine right” was nonsense. There is no bestowing of royal power from God. All power, all kingdoms, were created through deliberate planning and the sword, nothing more and nothing less. There are still some who claim to be royalty in our world today, but with a few exceptions, their power pales in comparison to the nearly godlike power that many monarchs wielded in the days of the Ancien Regime.”
(The images now shift to modern day inside an empty wrestling ring where a throne and crown are situated. As the picture pans further and further out, the viewer sees a nearly empty Stade Velodrome. Near the throne, frames of gold hold painted portraits of previous winners of the King of Elite such as Lannister, Robbie V and Tiberius Jones on display.)
“The times are different, but the truth is the same: Kingdoms are not handed down from God. They are earned through bloodshed, persistence and valor. Earning the title of King is not for the weak.”
(Aria Jaxon, Jamie O’Hara, Nico Borg, Heart Break Gal, The High Rollerz, Consuela Rose Ava and Carlos Rosso are all shown standing inside the arena, holding their championship belts, their respective challengers soon standing as well, facing them, Heart Break Boy, Tiberius, Astraea Jordan and Lars Grier the most easily seen. Scott Oasis and Jacob Senn are also seen staring each other down, a brief montage of the glory that both men have experienced in EAW is shown.)
“Surely it is a wonderful thing to be called champion. But in the end, MANY can call themselves champion. How many men and women can call themselves King, master of all that they survey in their land? How many of those opportunities are presented in life? It’s a truly once in a lifetime chance.”
(Soon, three different armies are shown marching towards the stadium, one holding an elaborate red flag at the front, the other holding one colored a rich dark blue with a white wolf on the front, and another emblazoned in gold.)
“Three men, three armies. Just like the old times in a way, no? But instead of commanding their soldiers from afar, these men will engage in combat to the bitter end, willing to risk their own smaller kingdoms to rule the whole of the world. Who will triumph this year? ”
(Keelan is shown in golden armor on a white horse, racing towards the battlefield.)
Will it be the battle-hardened knight from the golden country, looking to shake down the lightning from the very sky and carve out his own future in stone? He has dreamed of a moment like this, something to define his legacy. Will he seize the crown tonight?
(Theron is shown walking calmly towards the battlefield in white armor, his eyes cold as he starts to sprint to battle, drawing his sword.)
Or could it be the exiled royal himself, once betrayed by a kingdom he helped protect and build, given a chance anew to rule with an iron fist.
(Darkane, in red armor, slowly approaches as he leads an army of bandits, rogues and villains into battle.)
Or perhaps, the warrior of the west, unsatisfied with holding a simple title, is it his destiny to paint the kingdom red with the blood of those foolish enough to oppose him?
(As the three leaders prepare to clash, all their armies do the same.)
Knight: FOR GLORY!
Knight: FOR KING AND COUNTRY!
Knight: POUR SA MAJESTE!
(The screen shows Theron, Keelan and Darkane all clashing with each other, the outcome of the battle unknown as the clashing of their armies blocks the view of their war.)
Three kings. Only one throne. There is no divine right here. You want your kingdom, you must take it with the tip of a sword…. or fall trying!
(The crown and throne are shown one final time before the screen fades to black.)
Voice-Over: And now…. Elite Answers Wrestling welcomes you to the 2018 edition of KING OF ELITE!
(Pyro explodes around the Velodrome as the fans are shown excited and eager for the show to begin. Near the front entrance ramp the King of Elite throne is on display. Flags of all kinds are seen waving in the crowd, especially of the hosting country of France.)
Stew-O: WELCOME TO THE TENTH EDITION KING OF ELITE! THREE KINGS, ONE CROWN! Welcome everyone, I am Stew-O alongside my Dynasty broadcast partner, Jake Mercer! We have a sensational card of action this evening, don’t we?
Jake Mercer: Absolutely. Of course, we have the King of Elite final for all the marbles as Voltage, Dynasty and Showdown stars clash for the right to be called King of EAW. Our representative, Darkane, clashes with Keelan Cetinich from Voltage and Theron Nikolas from Showdown. What a match that is going to be!
Stew-O: And a sensational championship match is also brought to you by Dynasty as the reigning Answers World Champion, Nico Borg, defends his championship against the living legend, Heart Break Boy! ALL the commentary teams are here tonight, let’s check in on our colleagues from Empire, Gia and the incomparable SG1! Gia!
Gia: Thank you, Stew-O and Empire will be represented well tonight. Three matches feature ladies from the hottest brand in EAW!
SG1: That’s right, Gia! We have a huge pair of championship matches as Consuela Rose Ava defends the Specialists Championship against top contender Megan Raine. Also, the Women’s World Championship will be decided as Aria Jaxon defends against the brash upstart looking to turn our brand on its head: Astraea Jordan!
Gia: We also have another Empire representative in action as Sheridan Muller competes for the currently vacant EAW Openweight Championship as she meets Stark, representing Dynasty, and a familiar face to those who watch Voltage, the legendary Cameron Ella Ava, in a three-way dance. Let’s throw it over to our colleagues from Voltage, Nick Angel and Kawajai. Fellas?
Kawajai: Thank you Gia and Voltage has some incredible Elitists in action as well. Of course, we’ve talked about Keelan who is looking to take a crown, but it should be noted that Cameron is pulling double duty tonight. She and the Heart Break Gal, the EAW Champ, will challenge the High-Rollerz for the Unified Tag Team Championships!
Nick Angel: And let’s not forget that we have the World Heavyweight Championship on the line as Jamie O’Hara meets a familiar foe, Lars Greer, in a match for the title. Can the record-holder for the longest World Championship reign in the history of that title do it again, or will the Ravenbeak find the mark and give us a new champion?
Kawajai: We have one more stop on this tour of broadcasters, let’s turn it over to our colleagues from Showdown, Pierre McGuire and Drake Jaeger!
Pierre: Thanks, Kawajai, we have another great championship match brought to you by Showdown, Drake, as Heart Break Gal and Tiberius Jones meet in a Ladder Match for the EAW Championship!
Drake: That match alone is worth the price of admission. Hell, my being here is worth triple that. We also have a special challenge match, two “Legends” and I use such terms loosely, colliding as Jacob Senn meets Scott Oasis.
Pierre: Let’s not waste any more time with introductions! It’s time for the action, lets throw it to ringside!
Drake: OH MYYYY! SINCE WHEN DO WE START THE NIGHT OFF WITH THE MAIN EVENT? SCREW IT, I’M READY! IT BREAKS MY HEART TO SEE THESE TWO FIGHT, BUT IT WARMS MY HEART TO SEE THEM AS THE STARS OF THE SHOW! I’M CONFLICTED, PIERRE!
Pierre: It’s been a grueling, brutal rivalry between the former members of Hexa-gun-turned-enemies, but it culminates here tonight! Only one of these two competitors can walk out as EAW Champion, and only one can finish this regardless of where it began!
(A video package plays; recapping the history between Heart Break Gal and Tiberius Jones, beginning from the days of Hexa-gun in 2015, its disbanding in 2016, and their eventual encounter in 2017 with Tiberius offering Heart Break Gal a chance to fight by his side, HBG declining Tiberius’ offer, and their subsequent rivalry consisting of Heart Break Gal being too hurt to continue in the Elimination Chamber, Heart Break Gal dethroning Tiberius for the EAW Championship at Kingsroad, and the weeks leading up to King of Elite)
(The camera cuts back to the Stade Velodrome as several Ladders are shown set up against the barricade around the ring with multiple others set up in a standing position down the middle of the ramp and upon the stage)
(“The Mission” by Puscifer plays all throughout the Stade Velodrome as Tiberius Jones makes his way out to the stage in a green Dragon headdress with green and black tights on, with a look of determination upon his face)
Drake: There’s gonna be PLENTY of people coming out of the woodwork to say “Oh, see! Tiberius was nothing without the Kingsguard or Triumvirate!”, and those people can collectively go die in a fire, Pierre, and let me tell you WHY! It’s because that man right there proved beyond a shadow of a doubt why he’s fit to rule as not just a King, but as a World Champion! Every King needs an army, and that’s what he did!
Pierre: Well, perhaps you’re right, in a way, but I don’t think the problem was that he had those people around him, it’s that he had those people helping him in matches–
Drake: HOW DARE YOU! This man busted his ass to win the EAW Championship at Pain For Pride and keep it around his waist for half a year, and THIS is the thanks he gets? You’re so lucky murder is illegal, Pierre, because no offense, but I would love to beat you to death with your own Goddamn shoes!
(“The Mission” fades out as Tiberius Jones prepares himself in a nearby corner of the ring)
Pierre: There’s no denying how dominant Tiberius was as Champion, but he still let it slip away from him and now, in a way, he’s lost everything from his Championship to his “Tiberius IV” name, but he fully intends to take it all back tonight by any means necessary. He wants to finish this, and we’re about to see if he can do just that.
(“Square Hammer” by Ghost plays all throughout the Stade Velodrome as the Heart Break Gal makes her way out to the stage, dressed in dark red attire, black boots, sunglasses, a black trench coat on, and the EAW Championship around her waist. Red pyro goes off on both sides of the stage before she makes her way towards the ring)
Drake: AND HERE SHE COMES! THE EAW CHAMPION HERSELF, PIERRE! THERE WERE JUST AS MANY DOUBTERS OF THIS WOMAN AS THERE WERE OF TIBERIUS, AND IT MAKES ME SICK TO MY STOMACH IN BOTH INSTANCES! THEY’VE BOTH THEIR BLOOD, SWEAT, AND TEARS INTO EVERYTHING THEY DO AND ALL THEY GET IN RETURN IS PEOPLE LAUGHING AND MOCKING THEIR EFFORTS! WELL WHO’S LAUGHING NOW?!
Pierre: No doubt about it that the Heart Break Gal has had her share of naysayers throughout the years, even moreso last year in 2017 when she arrived on Showdown, looking to become a World Champion. But despite all of that–
Drake: Despite all of that, she STILL pulled it off! Granted, I’d prefer it if BOTH she and Tiberius were EAW Champion, but you can’t have it both ways sometimes! You gotta take what you can get, and that’s what I’m doing here! She pulled off a victory unlike any other and made HISTORY 10 years in the making! Nobody can take that away from her here, win or lose!
(Heart Break Gal enters the ring as “Square Hammer” slowly fades out. She removes the EAW Championship from around her waist, staring down with Tiberius Jones from behind her sunglasses as she holds up the EAW Championship)
Pierre: You’re right about that, but tonight, she finds herself in front of a huge obstacle in her path – a man MORE than willing to end her career tonight if it means taking back the Championship he believes belongs to him, but I think she fully intends to do the same in order to keep it around her waist.
(DING! DING! DING!)
(Heart Break Gal steps back into a corner opposite of Tiberius Jones as they continue to stare down while two spotlights appear upon them before the Ring Announcer steps forward)
Announcer: The following contest is a LADDER MATCH, AND IT IS FOR THE ELITE ANSWERS WRESTLING WORLD CHAAAAMMMPPPIIOONNSSSHHHIIIPPP!!….
(The crowd cheers as Tiberius and Heart Break Gal remain unmoved)
Announcer: First, in the corner to my left – the challenger….
(The camera focuses on Tiberius Jones)
Announcer: Hailing from Gaia…. He weighed in tonight at 213 Pounds…. HE IS “THE KOMODO DRAGON”…. THIS IS TIBERIUS JOOOOOOOONNNNNNNNNNNEEEEEEESSSSSSS!!!….
(A slight smirk appears upon the face of Tiberius as he remains in his corner, audibly trash-talking Heart Break Gal from across the ring)
Announcer: And his opponent, in the corner to my right…. Hailing from Dallas, Texas…. She weighed in tonight at 135 Pounds…. SHE IS THE REIGNING AND DEFENDING EAW CHAMPION…. “THE CONSIGLIERE”…. THIS IS THE HEART! BREAK!! GAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!….
(Heart Break Gal steps forward, into the center of the ring, holding up the EAW Championship proudly in the air as Tiberius steps forward, both getting face to face as the Referee steps in to separate them. The Referee takes the EAW Championship from a reluctant Heart Break Gal – holding it up for Tiberius to see, holding it up for HBG to see, and holding it up for the crowd to see before hanging the Championship as it rises above the ring. The lights in the arena go back to normal as the Championship stops its ascent while both competitors watch it)
Pierre: GREEN MIST!!!! TIBERIUS JONES JUST SPAT GREEN MIST DIRECTLY IN THE FACE OF A MOMENTARILY DISTRACTED HEART BREAK GAL BEFORE THIS CONTEST HAS OFFICIALLY BEGUN!! HBG IS WRITHING IN PAIN ON THE CANVAS AS THE REFEREE HAS NO CHOICE BUT TO CALL FOR THE BELL TO START THIS! THIS NO GOOD–
(DING! DING! DING!)
Drake: I HATE TO SAY IT, PIERRE, YOU KNOW I DO, BUT ALL IS FAIR IN LOVE AND WAR, AND THIS IS THE VERY DEFINITION OF A WAR! HBG HAS BEEN COMPLETELY BLINDED AS TIBERIUS HAS ROLLED TO THE OUTSIDE! HE’S GETTING A LADDER! HE WANTS TO END THIS AS SOON AS HUMANLY POSSIBLE AFTER IT JUST BEGAN AS HE SLIDES THE LADDER IN! HE’S BACK IN THE RING, MOVING AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE TO SET THE LADDER UP! HE’S GOT IT! TIBERIUS IS CLIMBING FOR IT! HBG’S STRUGGLING TO EVEN FIGURE OUT WHERE SHE IS! SHE CAN’T SEE, PIERRE!
Pierre: AN ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTING TACTIC BY TIBERIUS, BUT AN EFFECTIVE ONE AS HE’S WELL ON HIS WAY TO WINNING THIS! HE’S MAKING HIS ASCENT UP THE LADDER WHILE THE HEART BREAK GAL IS STILL ATTEMPTING TO REGAIN HER VISION AFTER THAT GREEN MIST! SHE’S CLINGING TO THE ROPES AS SHE GETS TO HER FEET! SHE’S FEELING HER WAY INTO A CORNER, DESPERATELY TRYING TO GET THE MIST OUT OF HER EYES! TIBERIUS IS ALREADY GETTING THERE TO THE TOP! HE CAN SEE HIS SWEET SALVATION IN HIS GRASP!! HE’S GOT TO THE TOP! TIBERIUS PULLS IT DOWN!!!
Drake: THE HEART BREAK GAL EXPLODES OUT OF THE CORNER AND CHARGES INTO THE LADDER WITH ALL HER MIGHT AS SHE MANAGES TO FORCE THE LADDER OVER WHILE TIBERIUS CLINGS TO THE HOOK THE CHAMPIONSHIP IS HANGING BY FOR DEAR LIFE!! HE LOSES HIS GRASP QUICKLY AS TIBERIUS CRASHES DOWN TO THE CANVAS!! HBG JUST SAVED HER ASS WITH THAT! HOW DID SHE PULL THAT OFF?!
Pierre: I think she may have just guessed! She got herself into the corner and just rushed forward, expecting Tiberius Jones to be there on a Ladder in the center of the ring! And it just paid off! HBG is still trying all she can to get her vision back as she yells for a towel! A crew member at ringside hands her a towel as she wipes away the residue of the green mist on her face and in her eyes! Tiberius is visibly in pain, but he’s aware he has to keep going in this as he does all he can to get back to a vertical base! HBG takes refuge in the nearby corner, getting the remaining green mist off of her and throwing the towel to the outside as Tiberius is up! Both competitors lock eyes! The absolute look of hate on the face of these two! THEY BOTH CHARGE FORWARD WITH ALL THEY’VE GOT AS THEY CLASH IN THE CENTER OF THE RING, THROWING LEFTS AND RIGHTS INTO ONE ANOTHER!! BOTH HBG AND TIBERIUS ABSOLUTELY UNLOADING!! THEY’RE NOT HOLDING ANYTHING BACK! THESE TWO ARE OUT FOR BLOOD!
Drake: Tiberius is taking control! HBG may still be too vulnerable from the damage done to her eyes with that green mist as Tiberius takes advantage, backing her into the nearby corner! She’s doing absolutely everything she can to fight back, but he’s proving to be too much! He’s got her in the corner and drives a HARD knee into the gut of HBG! TIBERIUS WITH A LOUD EUROPEAN UPPERCUT NOW! Tiberius quickly backs up… AND CHARGES IN FOR A BIG SHORYUKEN!!! PERFECT RUNNING EUROPEAN UPPERCUT TO THE HEART BREAK GAL!! The smirk on TJ’s face has returned as he realizes he’s back in control once more! He still has a chance to end this as soon as he wanted to! All he’s gotta do is put HBG away, but that might be easier said than done!
Pierre: Tiberius looks to do exactly that as he turns around, grabbing that downed ladder… He closes the ladder, picking it up! I don’t like the looks of this! Tiberius literally laughing as he’s got that ladder in hand! HE CHARGES, TARGETING THE FACE OF A CORNERED HBG!! LOOK OUT!
Drake: HBG DUCKS IT AS THE LADDER MISSES!! LOWBLOW!!! A LOWBLOW IMMEDIATELY TO TIBERIUS AS HE MISSES THAT SHOT WITH THE LADDER!! HBG moves out of the way as the Ladder is dropped into a position up against the corner while Tiberius remains kneeling in a great deal of pain! Both of them in pain once more, and both struggling to get back up! It’s a race here! HBG using the ropes to get herself back up! Tiberius is hurting! The look of disdain in the eyes of Tiberius as he sees HBG! HBG RUSHES FORWARD–TIBERIUS WITH A LOUD, SICKENING ELBOW TO GREET HER!! TIBERIUS IS ALIVE AGAIN AS HE PULLS HBG IN! HE’S LOOKING TOWARDS THAT LADDER IN THE CORNER! HE COULD BE LOOKING FOR A POWERBOMB!!
Pierre: THE HEART BREAK GAL LIFTS HIM UP?!! BACK BODY DROP SENDS TIBERIUS UP AND CRASHING INTO THE LADDER IN THE CORNER!! Incredible strength from the Heart Break Gal! I don’t know where she pulled off that one! HBG finally turns the tide for good, at least from the looks of things as she may be looking for a way to capitalize! Tiberius is in pain, trying to get himself back up! He’s clinging to that ladder in the corner to help himself up as HBG gets back to her feet! She’s got Tiberius in her sights! HBG STARTS PICKING UP SPEED AS SHE RUSHES IN!! A BIG STINGER SPLASH CONNECTS INTO TIBERIUS UP AGAINST THAT LADDER IN THE CORNER!! She grabs Tiberius and sends him off into the opposite corner of the ring with all her might as the Irish whip is successful! Tiberius hits hard into the corner! HBG’S NOT FINISHED YET AS SHE COMES IN!! YAKUZA KICK TO THE FACE OF TIBERIUS IN THE CORNER!!
Drake: Tiberius nearly drops, but HBG isn’t letting him! She’s not done! She wants more! HBG USES EVERY OUNCE OF STRENGTH SHE HAS FOR ANOTHER IRISH WHIP AS TIBERIUS IS SENT INTO THE LADDER IN THE OPPOSITE CORNER!! THE BODY OF TIBERIUS CRASHING INTO THE LADDER WITH GREAT VELOCITY!! TIBERIUS DROPS DOWN IN PAIN, FAVORING HIS BACK! HBG has completely turned things around in this! She’s in full control! The EAW Championship hanging above the ring immediately catches her eye! She looks back at a downed Tiberius… I think she’s contemplating whether to go for it or not! She isn’t sure if that was enough to keep Tiberius down!
Pierre: She’s right to question that, but the more time she spends thinking about it, the less time she has to do whatever she decides on! Tiberius is recovering with every passing second! HBG gets back on her feet, making her way towards the ladder! I think she’s going for it! HBG pulls the ladder out of the corner, picking it up! She’s making her way… No! She stops herself! She stops herself as she stands over the body of a damaged Tiberius Jones! HBG CHANGES HER MIND AS SHE DRIVES THE LADDER DOWN INTO THE BODY OF TIBERIUS!! SHE DRIVES IT DOWN INTO TIBERIUS AGAIN! HBG THROWS THE LADDER DOWN AND GRABS A HOLD OF TIBERIUS, DRAGGING HIM UP! She’s not going for the end just yet! She wants to get rid of Tiberius once and for all before she does! HBG SCOOPS TIBERIUS UP… AND SLAMS HIM DOWN, RIGHT ON TOP OF THAT LADDER AS HE WRITHES IN PAIN!! She keeps him in place, right there on top of the ladder before she makes her way to the nearby corner! What’s she thinking?
Drake: I think we know EXACTLY what she’s thinking! You’ve gotta take risks in a match like this, Pierre, and that’s exactly what she’s doing! Tiberius is laid out atop that ladder! He’s ripe for the picking! HBG IS PERCHED!! SHE’S GOTTA GO FOR IT!! FALL OF EMPIIIIIIRRRRREEEE!!!!!
Pierre: TIBERIUS ROLLS OFF THE LADDER AS THE HEART BREAK GAL CRASHES ONTO IT WITH THAT MISSED DOUBLE ROTATION MOONSAULT!!! THE HEART BREAK GAL MISSED HER TARGET AND JUST PAID FOR IT IN SPADES AS SHE CAME DOWN ONTO THAT LADDER WITH GREAT FORCE!! SHE COULD HAVE VERY EASILY BROKEN A RIB OR EVEN A FEW!!
Drake: I hate seeing this, Pierre! They’re tearing themselves apart when they should be a unit and ripping OTHER people apart! I take no joy in this like I usually do when people are killing each other! HBG drops to the outside as Tiberius finds an opportunity to recuperate! I think he sees a golden opportunity here as Tiberius rolls to the outside… Tiberius wants to completely shift the momentum back in his favor as he grabs HBG, clutching her hair as he drags her up! HBG ESCAPES FROM HIS GRASP! A BIG FOREARM NAILS TIBERIUS IN THE FACE! ANOTHER FOREARM! ANOTHER!
Pierre: Tiberius stops the effort with a big knee straight to those damaged ribs of HBG!! HBG nearly doubles over in pain, but Tiberius isn’t gonna let her! TIBERIUS IMMEDIATELY IRISH WHIPS HBG STRAIGHT INTO A NEARBY SET UP LADDER AT THE BOTTOM OF THE RAMP!! THE LADDER TOPPLES OVER AS HBG IS DOWN! Tiberius isn’t finished by any means just yet! He grabs that ladder, closes it, and sets it up against the ring apron! He wants nothing more than to punish the Heart Break Gal! He aims to punish her for coming this far! For taking his Championship from him! He’ll do whatever it takes! Tiberius drags HBG up! She’s still fighting! TIBERIUS WITH AN EXPLODER SUPLEX STRAIGHT INTO THAT LADDER AGAINST THE APRON AS THE BODY OF HBG BOUNCES OFF OF IT!!
Drake: Tiberius is loving every second of this! As much as I hate to say it, these two might actually not be too fond of each other, Pierre!
Pierre: Do you think so?
Drake: I know so, and I think we’re about to get even more confirmation as Tiberius grabs that ladder HBG just bounced off of… He sends it sliding back into the ring! He’s not finished yet! Tiberius grabs another ladder… He sends it flying over and landing on the first in the ring! He’s still not done! He grabs a third ladder from against the barricade and throws THAT in as well! He just piled up multiple ladders in the ring there, and I can only imagine what he intends to do with them as he stalks HBG now… HBG is desperately struggling to pull herself up with those steel steps… SHE’S UP AS TIBERIUS COMES CHARGING IN!! SHORYUKEN!!! ANOTHER VIOLENT RUNNING EUROPEAN UPPERCUT CONNECTS AS HBG IS FLIPPED OVER THE DAMN STEEL STEPS!! GOOD GOD! TIBERIUS STILL ISN’T FINISHED! HE DRAGS HBG UP! Tiberius navigates HBG over to the apron… HE DRIVES HER FACE-FIRST INTO THE APRON! Tiberius drags HBG up with him onto the apron! They’re both up there, but Tiberius intends to go even higher! HE PICKS HBG UP AND SETS HER UP ON THE TOP TURNBUCKLE!
Pierre: I don’t like the looks of this one bit! That pile of Ladders is right there in front of that corner he’s got her set up on! I think we know what’s coming! Tiberius climbs up there with her! HBG IS FIGHTING! SHE’S FIGHTING WITH ALL SHE’S GOT AS SHE LAYS INTO TIBERIUS UP ON THAT TOP TURNBUCKLE! BOTH HBG AND TIBERIUS THROWING SHOTS AT ONE ANOTHER! KOMODO BITE!!! TIBERIUS LITERALLY SINKING HIS TEETH INTO THE SKULL OF HBG!! A SADISTIC MOVE, BUT IT WAS ENOUGH TO TAKE BACK CONTROL AS HE LETS GO AND NAILS HER WITH A HARD FOREARM TO THE FACE! SHE’S OUT OF IT! TIBERIUS SETS HER UP! HE’S GOT IT!! SEISMIC TOSS ONTO THOSE LADDERS!!!
Drake: HBG STOPS HIM WITH A HEADBUTT RIGHT BETWEEN THE EYES! ANOTHER HEADBUTT TO THE SKULL OF TIBERIUS! ANOTHER! ANOTHER!! AND ANOTHER CONNECTS AS HBG GETS OUT OF HIS GRASP!! HBG DROPS DOWN, THROUGH THE LEGS OF TIBERIUS!! SHE’S GOT HIM ON HER SHOULDERS!! HBG RUSHES FORWARD WITH TIBERIUS–POWERBOMB!!! A VIOLENT POWERBOMB ONTO THOSE LADDERS!!! JESUS CHRIST WHAT A MOVE!!
(A slow-motion replay is shown of Heart Break Gal powerbombing Tiberius Jones onto three ladders)
Pierre: I can’t even begin to imagine what kind of pain Tiberius is in after that! There’s no doubt in my mind he’s injured after that! His body just DRIVEN spine-first into those unforgiving ladders! The Heart Break Gal realizes she may have a chance to finally end this contest! She looks up at her EAW Championship hanging above the ring! She needs to get to it, and as quickly as possible! She’s looking to do just that as she grabs one of those Ladders! She can pull it off! HBG struggles to get back up with that ladder in hand! She makes it to the center of the ring, setting it up! She needs to hurry! Tiberius is stirring! SHE’S GOT IT SET UP AS HBG QUICKLY STARTS MAKING HER ASCENT! SHE CAN SEE THE EAW CHAMPIONSHIP JUST ABOVE! SHE’S IN A GREAT DEAL OF PAIN, BUT SHE JUST NEEDS TO GET TO IT! SHE JUST HAS TO PULL IT DOWN! THAT’S ALL SHE’S GOT TO DO! COME ON! HBG’S CLIMBING!! SHE’S ALMOST THERE!
Drake: TIBERIUS FORCES HIMSELF UP AND LAUNCHES A LADDER UP AND STRAIGHT INTO THE SIDE OF THE HEART BREAK GAL!! HBG COMES CRASHING DOWN TO THE CANVAS AS THAT LADDER SHE WAS ON TIPS OVER!! TIBERIUS JUST SAVED HIMSELF WITH THAT, BUT IT MAY HAVE BEEN ALL HE HAD LEFT AS HE DROPS BACK DOWN IN PAIN! As resilient as HBG is, you can’t doubt how resilient Tiberius himself is as well! He’s every bit as determined to win this! He might be injured after that powerbomb he took, but that wasn’t stopping him! Both competitors are banged up! Both trying to get back to their feet! HBG and Tiberius both looking towards the same ladder, the one HBG just fell off of moments ago! It’s a race once again in this! Tiberius is up to it first as he grabs the ladder! He’s got it! Tiberius–HBG forces herself up, grabbing the other side of the ladder! Both of them jockeying for control of the ladder! TIBERIUS THROWS A HARD RIGHT HAND THROUGH THE MIDDLE OF THE LADDER, RIGHT INTO THE MOUTH OF HBG! TIBERIUS QUICKLY CLOSES THAT LADDER! HE PICKS IT UP AS HBG IS AGAINST THE ROPES! TIBERIUS RUSHES IN AND NAILS HER WITH THE TOP OF THAT LADDER!! HBG IS SENT OVER THE ROPES AND CRASHING TO THE OUTSIDE!! TIBERIUS IS BACK IN CONTROL!
Pierre: And it doesn’t look like he’s letting it go this time! He aims to keep the momentum going this time around as he throws that ladder down and sets his sights entirely on HBG on the outside! HBG is in pain, desperate to get back up and get back in this before it’s too late! Tiberius doesn’t intend to let that happen! He readies himself for something big here… HBG SLOWLY GETTING BACK TO HER FEET AS TIBERIUS HITS THE ROPES!! PICKING UP MOMENTUM! INCOMING!! SUICIDE DIVE!!!
Drake: HBG GRABS A LADDER FROM AGAINST THE SIDE OF OUR TABLE AND THROWS IT INTO THE ONCOMING TIBERIUS JONES!!! JESUS–TJ JUST CRASHED AND BURNED RIGHT HERE IN FRONT OF OUR TABLE WITH THAT!! HBG SAVES HERSELF WITH THAT ONE! She sees a golden opportunity here! HBG forces her way back to her feet, stumbling into our table! SHE’S RIPPING OFF THE COVERING! HBG COULD BE LOOKING FOR SOMETHING BIG HERE AS SHE TURNS HER FOCUS BACK TO A DAMAGED TIBERIUS! HBG grabs Tiberius by his hair, dragging him up! She’s got him up against our table! We may wanna think of moving! Well, I’ll move, you stay, Pierre! HBG WITH RAPID-FIRE ELBOWS AND FOREARMS TO THE FACE OF TIBERIUS AS HE’S LAID OUT ACROSS OUR TABLE!! HBG’s not quite done yet! She grabs that ladder! HBG’S SETTING IT UP, RIGHT OVER OUR TABLE! THIS CROWD IS ON THEIR FEET! SHE’S LOOKING TO END THIS ONCE AND FOR ALL!! HBG STARTS TO MAKE HER ASCENT, CLIMBING UP THAT LADDER, LOOKING TO PUT TIBERIUS AWAY!
Pierre: Tiberius is barely able to move! He’s out of it! HBG IS NEARLY TO THE TOP! TIBERIUS IS DOING ALL HE CAN TO GET UP HERE! HE FORCES HIMSELF UP AND RUSHES UP THE LADDER!! HBG CAN’T STOP HIM BEFORE HE GRABS A HOLD OF HER!! LOOK OUT–
(Tiberius hits a Seismic Toss off the Ladder and through the Showdown Announce Table as the crowd erupts)
Drake: JESUS CHRIST!!! TIBERIUS–HBG–I DON’T KNOW IF I CAN TAKE THIS ANYMORE, PIERRE! TIBERIUS JUST PUT HBG THROUGH OUR TABLE WITH THAT VIOLENT BACKFLIP BELLY TO BELLY DROP!!! TJ IS LAUGHING! HE’S LITERALLY LAUGHING AS HE GETS TO HIS KNEES! HE’S HURT AND HE’S BATTERED, BUT HE DOESN’T CARE! TIBERIUS IS IN CONTROL AND USES THE OPPORTUNITY TO BERATE HBG AS HE LOOKS DOWN UPON HER! TIBERIUS NOW SLAPPING A DEFENSELESS HBG AS SHE REMAINS DOWN! THE REFEREE IS TRYING TO GET HIM OFF, BUT THERE’S NOTHING HE CAN DO! Tiberius slowly rises back to his feet, still favoring his back… Tiberius stumbles towards the ring, leaving HBG in a heap of the shattered remains of our table! I need to check on her, Pierre! There’s only so many times somebody can get put through a table and still be able to function!
Pierre: HBG is barely able to move! Not enough to stop Tiberius as he rolls back into the ring! The Referee has no choice but to keep watch to see if Tiberius can finish this off, and he may do just that as he grabs a nearby ladder! Tiberius can see his salvation hanging above the ring! The Championship that was taken from him back at Kingsroad! The Championship he’s been desperate to make his again! He has a chance to do it as he sets that ladder up! Our Doctor at ringside is trying to check on HBG, but she’s pushing him away! She’s still got life in her, but I don’t think it’s enough to stop this match from ending! TIBERIUS STARTS CLIMBING! HE’S MAKING HIS WAY TOWARDS THE EAW CHAMPIONSHIP! HE’S PRACTICALLY SALIVATING AT THE MOUTH! HOLD ON, THE HEART BREAK GAL IS CLUTCHING AT THE SHIRT OF THE DOCTOR, PULLING HERSELF UP AS HE TRIES TO TALK HER OUT OF IT! SHE’S NOT STOPPING! NOT FOR A SECOND! AS LONG AS SHE’S STILL GOT A BREATH LEFT IN HER BODY, SHE’S NOT STOPPING! TIBERIUS IS CLOSING IN ON THE CHAMPIONSHIP! HBG STUMBLES TO THE APRON! SHE’S CLUTCHING IT! TIBERIUS SEES HER! HE QUICKENS HIS PACE AS HBG STARTS CLIMBING TO THE APRON!! SHE’S CLUTCHING THE ROPES! TIBERIUS IS DOING ALL HE CAN TO END THIS! HE MAKES IT TO THE TOP!! TIBERIUS PULLS THE CHAMPIONSHIP!!!

He’s already back up, pulling himself up on the apron! HE’S UP! HBG SENDS THE LADDER STRAIGHT INTO HIM AS TIBERIUS DROPS OFF OF IT! HE’S DOWN ON THE OUTSIDE ONCE MORE!
Drake: HBG abandons the ladder! She’s only got her eyes focused on Tiberius Jones right now! TJ might be in trouble here! HBG works her way over to the nearby corner! SHE’S CLIMBING UP! SHE’S NOT STOPPING UNTIL TIBERIUS IS RENDERED UNABLE TO CONTINUE IN THIS! THE HEART BREAK GAL IS PERCHED ON THE TOP!! SHE’S READY TO FLY! HBG LEAPS!! THE ARROWVERSE!!!

HE LAUNCHES HBG WITH A POWERBOMB INTO A LADDER ON THE RAMP!!! A DEVASTATING POWERBOMB AS HBG’S BODY WAS SENT CRASHING AND BURNING INTO THAT LADDER!!! HBG IS DOWN! SHE IS IN PAIN! UNBELIEVABLE PAIN!

Drake: HBG FIGHTS IT AS SHE DRIVES RAPID ELBOWS DOWN INTO THE SKULL OF TIBERIUS!! ONE AFTER ANOTHER!! TIBERIUS IS FALTERING!! REVERSE FRANKENSTEINER!!! A VIOLENT REVERSE FRANKENSTEINER CONNECTS AS TIBERIUS IS DRIVEN ON THE BACK OF HIS SKULL ON THAT UNFORGIVING RAMP!! TIBERIUS COULD BE CONCUSSED–HE’S OUT OF IT AS HE SCRAMBLES TO GET UP! HBG isn’t far behind as she forces herself up! Tiberius is stumbling his way up the ramp, looking for something to help him! Anything! HBG GRABS A LADDER AND CHARGES IN FROM BEHIND! SHE DRIVES THAT LADDER INTO THE SPINE OF TIBERIUS AT THE TOP OF THE RAMP! ANOTHER BIG SHOT WITH THAT LADDER AS TIBERIUS DROPS DOWN!! HE’S LAID OUT! HBG IS LOOKING AROUND AS THIS CROWD GETS TO THEIR FEET! SHADES OF ROAD TO REDEMPTION! SHE WANTS TO END HIM ONCE MORE! SHE WANTS TO SUCCEED WHERE SHE FAILED LAST TIME AROUND!

Pierre: This is risky, I don’t know! I don’t think she gives a damn anymore! She wants to end this man! Tiberius is down as HBG starts climbing! SHE’S MAKING HER WAY UP THAT RAMP AS TIBERIUS IS A SITTING DUCK THERE ON THAT RAMP!! HE BETTER HOPE FOR A MIRACLE!! SHE CAN DO IT!!
Drake: HOLD ON–TIBERIUS IS MOVING!! HE’S FORCING HIMSELF UP! TIBERIUS SPRINGS TO HIS FEET AND FORCES HIS WAY INTO THE LADDER!! IT GOES TOPPLING OVER!!!
Pierre: HBG DROPS OFF THE LADDER AS IT TOPPLES OVER AND ONTO THE SHOULDERS OF AN UNSUSPECTING TIBERIUS JONES–ARROWVERSE!!! A BIG HURRICANRANA OUT OF THE DAMN BLUE ONTO TIBERIUS AS HBG MANAGES TO JUST BARELY SAVE HERSELF FROM THE SAME FATE SHE SUFFERED AT ROAD TO REDEMPTION!!! SHE’S STILL IN THIS! TIBERIUS COULD BE DONE! I think she may have tempted fate one too many times here as she looks towards the EAW Championship hanging above the ring! She knows she has to get it! She can’t keep trying to end the career of Tiberius and risk making a huge mistake! HBG forces her way back to her feet, making her way towards the ring! She can do this! This crowd is firmly behind her as she picks up speed! HBG gets to the ring, rolling in! DO IT, HBG! FINISH THIS! SHE WANTS TO PROVE DETHRONING TIBERIUS AT KINGSROAD WAS NO FLUKE, AND THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT SHE’S ABOUT TO DO! HBG GRABS THAT LADDER IN THE RING, SETTING IT UP!
Drake: SHE CAN DO IT! SHE CAN DO IT, PIERRE! HBG STARTS HER CLIMB!! SHE’S MOVING AS FAST AS SHE POSSIBLY CAN!! THE SHEER DAMAGE SHE’S TAKEN IN THIS CONTEST HAS TAKEN A TOLL ON HER, BUT SHE’S CLIMBING WITH ALL SHE’S GOT LEFT IN HER!

Pierre: HEADHUNTER?!!!!! WHAT?!!! TIBERIUS JONES OUT OF NOWHERE WITH A HEADHUNTER FROM BEHIND INTO THE HEART BREAK GAL AS THEY BOTH CRASH TO THE CANVAS!! WHERE ON EARTH DID HE JUST COME FROM?! HOW DID HE GET TO THE RING SO FAST?!
Drake: YOU CAN’T GO DOUBTING TIBERIUS LIKE THAT, PIERRE! I TOLD YOU HOW RESILIENT HE IS! HE FORCED HIS WAY BACK TO HIS FEET AND MADE IT TO THE RING JUST IN TIME TO RAIN ON HBG’S PARADE! WHAT A MATCH THIS HAS BEEN! BOTH COMPETITORS DOING ALL THEY CAN TO FORCE THEMSELVES UP! THEY’RE BOTH BATTERED, BEATEN, AND EXHAUSTED!

(DING! DING! DING!)
(“Square Hammer” by Ghost plays all throughout the arena as an exhausted Heart Break Gal recuperates at the top of the Ladder with the EAW Championship while Tiberius Jones remains underneath it)
Announcer: THE WINNER OF THIS CONTEST…. AND STTTTTIIIIIIILLLLLLL EAW CHAMPION….. THE HEART! BREAK!! GAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLL!!!
Drake: SHE DID IT! SHE DID IT, PIERRE! HBG PROVES THEM ALL WRONG TONIGHT! SHE MANAGED TO WIN IT BEYOND ALL DOUBT! SHE LITERALLY COMES OUT ON TOP TONIGHT AT KING OF ELITE!
Pierre: And what an absolute WAR it was, my goodness! Those two absolutely laid it all out on the line tonight! One of the most back and forth Ladder Matches I have ever witnessed!
Drake: TIBERIUS DID EVERYTHING HE ABSOLUTELY COULD TO STOP HER, BUT SHE WOULD NOT DIE! NEITHER ONE OF THEM WOULD STAY DOWN, BUT IN THE END, HBG WAS ABLE TO PULL IT OFF! I COULDN’T BE MORE PROUD OF WHAT THESE TWO JUST ACCOMPLISHED OUT THERE! GIVE THEM A ROUND OF APPLAUSE! I LOVE IT!
Pierre: What a way to end this rivalry! The Heart Break Gal manages to overcome everything in her way once more here tonight and proves she’s not just a one hit wonder! She went up against one of the most dominant men in EAW and went through absolute Hell to prove that! Tiberius deserves all the credit in the World, but tonight belongs to HBG!
Drake: What a way to start the night off! Just shut the show down now while you still can, because it’s not getting any better than that for me! I’m done!
Pierre: Congratulations to the Heart Break Gal!

(“Studio” by Schoolboy Q & BJ The Chicago Kid plays as Megan Raine moonwalks out onto the stage, holding her ‘Make it Raine” fitted.)
SG1: Hello EAW Universe! Welcome to Empire’s match 1 of 2 for King of Elite 2018! I am your Friendly Neighborhood Vixen SG1 and this is my partner the gorgeous Gia Cervantes!
Gia Cervantes: Thank you SG! A month ago at Bloodletter, Megan Raine has earned a shot at Consuela Rose Ava’s Specialist Championship by defeating Sydney St. Clair!
SG1: Megan’s looking very confident tonight! She and Consuela had an epic back and forth that was nearly as intense as Aria/Astraea!
Gia: Clearly they don’t like each other. Consuela called Megan’s relationship with Chairman Ryan Adams into question, who just openly admitted to having sexual relations with her own boss!
SG1: When you have an air-tight contract and is protected by the most powerful man in the wrestling industry, anybody would be as cocky as her!
Gia: But will it get her a title?
SG1: We’ll see, partner.
(Megan Raine starts dancing her way down the ramp, and takes a red cup from a fan and raises it for all to see)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Jasmine Peyton: The following match is scheduled for one fall!
Crowd: UNE CHUTE!
Jasmine: And it is for the Specialist Championship! First, the challenger! From Hammersmith, London, U.K.! Weighing in at 110lbs! “The Storm” MEGAN “MAKING IT” RAINE!
(Megan climbs into the ring with the red cup and takes a sip before putting it in the corner. She takes off her cap to the crowd. A few moments later, “Exotic” by Priyanka Chopra ft. Pitbull plays as a group of French maids come out dancing in a seductive manner. They separate on the ramp and point at the stage where Consuela Rose Ava walks out in her own French maid outfit, flanked by the mother/daughter Spanish maid duo of Esmeralda and Francesca. The Specialist Championship is around Consuela’s waist)
Jasmine: From Frias, Spain! Weighing in at 120lbs! She is your REIGNING and DEFENDING EAW Specialist Champion! Consuela! Rose! Ava!
SG1: Here she is – The Second Goddess in The Making! Not only did she secure a second Specialist reign in less than a year, but she ran through half of the roster while defending her status as Duchess of the Specialist Division!
Gia: April Song, Azumi Goto, Chelsea Crowe, Mallory Wilde – you name it, she’s beaten them! If she comes out on top tonight that gap for a new champion gets that much more narrow!
(Consuela climbs into the ring and tears off her outfit, revealing black wrestling attire underneath with fishnet stockings. Give gives the ref her title and makes her way to her corner. The ref raises the title zooms in on the front plate. The ref hands off the title and calls for the bell.)
(DING! DING! DING!).
SG1: The ref calls for the bell and here we go! Consuela and Megan are coming out of their respective corners! They’re wasting no time trading shots back and forth! The fans are in an uproar as champion and challenger go ballistic on each other! Consuela whips Megan to the ropes! Raine holds onto the ropes for dear life, avoiding the dropkick! Consuela hesitates but its costs her! Megan is on top of her with a Thesz press, hammering fist after fist! Consuela pushes her off, and returns the favor with a Thesz press of her own! These women are quickly turning this match into a blood feud! They quickly separate, licking their wounds!
Gia: There’s no love lost between these two! Their “war of words” – as a certain elitist puts it – has been back and forth all week!
SG1: Megan is calming herself down as Consuela gathers her own composure. Francesca and Esmeralda, Consuela maid family, is reminding her to ‘tranquilo’. That’s a phrase thrown around a lot these days in the Land of the Elite. Both women calmly approach each other to initiate a lock-up!
Gia: Coming back from mid-season break has everyone chomping at the bits, namely these two! Consuela is pushing down Megan’s shoulders, forcing her on one knee! Megan’s trying to fight back – knee to the face of Megan! Raine is down, and Ava is going wants an early submission! She’s trying for a modified headscissors armbar! Megan slipped out, and gets to her feet! Consuela avoids the low kick! She grabs the leg and pulls her opponent a Single Leg Boston Crab! Megan’s crying out for help as she reaches out for the rope!
SG1: It looks like Ava did her homework! Megan is being outmatched in the technical department! The Avas are a set of technical wizards, each with their own specialties! From what I’ve seen, Consuela is a master of counter submissions! Megan flips Consuela over with her leg! Ava tumbles back to her feet! Megan hits the ropes – flying clothesline by Ava! Megan rolls out the ring to compose herself!
Gia: Consuela is a battle-hardened champion at this point! A two-time champion with plenty of successful defenses under her belt! Megan needs a new plan because whatever she thought was going to happen isn’t working out!
SG1: Consuela’s maids are cleaning up around the ring, wiping down the barricades! Esmeralda is walking up to Megan. Is she brushing her face with a feather duster!? Megan’s not having any of it as she pulls away from the duster and throws it down – SUICIDE DIVE BY THE CHAMPION! Consuela lands on her feet as Megan rolls along the floor from the impact!
Esmerelda: (off mic) Basura! Hmph!
Gia: And now we see one of the reasons why Consuela was able to hold this title for so long! Her former cleaning buddies and their so-called good intentions! Why are they even out here!?
SG1: They’re out here to show solidarity! If Megan wants this, she can’t be distracted by little things like an old lady and her daughter! Consuela rolls Megan back into the ring and goes for a cover!
Gia: Megan kicks out! Consuela stands and stomps on her mid-section with such ruthlessness! The ref gives Consuela a warning who backs away for a moment and picks up Megan, pressing her against the ropes! KNIFE EDGE CHOP!
SG1: Megan’s stumbling away, holding her chest! That chop had to sting! Consuela grabs the arm and whips her to the corner! She goes for the handspring and – NOBODY HOME! Megan managed to get out the way! She jumps on the second rope, unleashing her frustration in the form of fists! One! Two! Three! Four! Five! Six! Seven! Eight! Nine! Raine drops down – SUPERKICK! Consuela’s face was rocked to the core as she slumps in the corner!
Gia: Megan is finding her flow as she skips to the opposite corner! She runs towards Consuela – PROJECT RUNWAY! Megan is throttling Consuela’s head with that bronco buster!
Megan: (yells) NOW YOU AND RYAN HAVE SOMETHING IN COMMON!
Gia: Ouch! Even the nosebleeds could hear the sound of that smack across the face! I’d like not to think about what Raine met with that comment –
SG1: Well when a man and a woman really love each other –
Gia: Turnbuckle dropkick by Raine! It’s alright Gia, I don’t need to know the rest! Megan has Consuela’s number and she’s leaving with this onslaught of offense! She walks backward, gauging her opponent, making a framing gesture with her hands! She’s letting France knows she has Ava in her sights! She goes for it! SNAPSHOT RUNNING KNEE – DROP TOEHOLD COUNTER BY CONSUELA! Megan’s head lands on the second rope! Consuela grabs the top rope and swings over – WRECKING BALL DROPKICK! Megan flies back from the impact! What agility from Consuela, who is scaling to the top turnbuckle! MOONSAULT! Megan is pinned!
SG1: Megan kicks out! She’s not backing out of this without a fight, Gia! The 60,000-plus Stade Velodrome audience is going wild! Consuela ’s getting annoyed! Francesca is urging her to calm down and focus on the match! Ava grabs her by the hair and pulls her up! She delivers an elbow to the back of Megan’s neck! She grabs a hold of her wrist! A kick to the thigh! A second kick aimed at the midsection! Aaaaannd a third kick to face and Megan is down again! Her face is flushed red from the beating she’s taking!
Gia: Consuela’s laughing it up right now. She picks up Raine with a facelock and wraps her arms around the waist Northern Lights Suplex!.Wait! Megan landed on her feet! Both women are stuck in the bridge position! Megan twists! REVERSE ROLLING CUTTER! Megan is on her knees, attempting to psych herself up! The counter has paid off! She crawls behind a seated Consuela and applies the armlock, followed by several elbow strikes to the shoulder. Megan yanks back the arm, forcing the champ to scream in agony!
SG1: Megan’s slowing things down. To be honest, this pace suits her! Consuela tries to pull away, but Megan pulls her into a sleeper hold! The champ is trying to fight her way out! Her maid companions are cheering her on! Consuela arches her back and pushes herself up with Megan who refuses to let go of the submission! Elbow to the gut by Consuela! A second! A third and Megan breaks the hold and doubles over – DDT by the champ! She mounts her opponent, raining a series of blows upon Raine’s face – no pun of course!
Gia: Megan’s trying to fight back, but is too stunned to do so! She has to find a way out of this! Every time she builds up steam, Consuela knocks her back down!
SG1: Consuela herself is getting worn out! Back and forth contests take the wind out of everyone involved, thus doing nobody any favors!
Gia: Consuela gets off Megan and takes a stroll around to ring to recover a bit. The Storm can’t allow herself to go quietly into that good night! She’s leaning against the ropes as Consuela rushes at her – RAINE PULLS DOWN THE ROPES AND AVA GOES TUMBLING AFTER! Esmeralda and Francesca run over to go check on the champ! Megan’s pumping up the crowd and it looks like she’s about to do something crazy! She’s climbing to the top! Consuela’s is in la-la land as Esmerelda is trying to revive her! Francesca is waving her arms in the air, yelling at Megan to get back down! Megan replies by giving her the finger and takes off! MOONSAULT! MEGAN RAINS DOWN A MOONSAULT UPON CONSUELA, FRANCESCA, AND – AY DIOS MIO!
(The camera shows Esmeralda lying unconscious next to the pile of Consuela, Megan, and Francesca. The crowd goes silent as a replay shows Megan landing the moonsault upon Francesca and Consuela. Esmeralda was seen caught in the falling pile of bodies.)
SG1: Megan Raine’s recklessness just paid dividends because we now have an unconscious abuela ringside! The medical staff is checking on Esmerelda as her daughter and friend, the champ herself is too stunned to notice!
Gia: Megan is the first to stand as she points as Esmeralda and starts cursing her out!
Megan: (yells) BITCHES GET STITCHES!
SG1: Raine picks up Consuela and TOSSES HER INTO THE STEEL STEPS HEAD FIRST!
Gia: Esa era la abuela de alguien…
SG1: Megan glares at Francesca and pushes her towards medical staff with her foot!
Gia: ESA ERA LA ABUELA DE ALGUIEN!
SG1: Gia! Calm yourself!
(Megan hears Gia’s screaming and turns around to give her the finger)
Gia: (mumbles) Puta perra…
SG1: Not wanting to take any chances, Megan rolls Consuela back into the ring! Gia, you going to be okay.
Gia: I’m fine! Consuela needs to find the right opportunity to strike back at this perra!
SG1: Megan delivers a vicious soccer kick to Consuela’s side! If she continues on taking hits like that, I doubt she’ll find a way back in this!
Gia: While Consuela is not as experienced as her sister, she’s already a two-time Specialist Champion, the only one in existence mind you!
SG1: Megan whips Consuela to the ropes and NEARLY DECAPITATES HER WITH A MONSTER CLOTHESLINE! There’s almost a sparkle in her eye as she looks at Francesca and Esmeralda being taken away by EMS!
SG1: I don’t know my Spanish that well, but those maids helped Consuela get away with murder ever since they arrived! Why would you side with them!
Gia: You just don’t lay your hands on a sweet old lady, SG!
SG1: First off – That woman was anything but sweet! Second – CORKSCREW ELBOW DROP BY RAINE! We’ll have to argue later because the challenger is no on the apron, waiting for the champ to get on her feet!
Gia: Stay down Consuela! She’s preparing for the One Hit Wonder!
SG1: If Megan hits that springboard forearm, then she’s one move away from winning it all! She springboards and flies towards Consuela – DDT! CONSUELA LEAPED AND CAUGHT AN AIRBORNE MEGAN WITH A JUMPING DDT! Just before Megan could swing, Consuela grabbed her and drove her head into the mat! What ingenuity! Consuela crawls over Megan’s body for the desperation pin!
SG1: Megan kicks out! The crowd is split at this moment! Half the arena is cheering for Megan Raine, while the other for Consuela Rose Ava! It’s been a back and forth slobber knocker so far with two bystanders paying the price!
Gia: Consuela rolls off Megan, trying to create some separation between the two! The ref is performing a count for a possible double knockout! Consuela’s holding her heading, wondering what it will take to mount a strong offensive! Megan is lying on her stomach, straining to get up! This is Consuela’s chance to take back control and walk away with another successful defense! Both women are on their knees – STIFF SHOT TO THE FACE BY MEGAN! CONSUELA ANSWERS WITH A SLAP!
SG1: FOREARM BY MEGAN! HEADBUTT BY CONSUELA! Megan falls backward, but CONSUELA PULLS HER IN FOR ANOTHER HEADBUTT! Consuela stands up! WHAT A KICK TO THE CHEST! A SECOND ONE! A THIRD! A FOURTH! SHE PULLS BACK AND FINISHES MEGAN OFF WITH A ROUNDHOUSE ACROSS THE FACE! That was like watching a bat swing at somebody’s head! She grabs Megan and DEADLIFTS her over her shoulders in an electric chair position! Megan’s trying to wiggle free! CONSUELA IS READY TO DELIVER HER VERSION OF THE ONE WINGED ANGEL KNOWN AS LEMON PLEDGE! SHE’S ABOUT TO DRIVE MEGAN INTO THE MAT – RAINE REVERSES INTO A ROLL-UP PIN!
SG1: CONSUELA KICKS OUT!
Gia: Both women are – CRUCIFIX PIN BY CONSUELA!
SG1: MEGAN KICKS OUT! SHE ESCAPES A SECOND DESPERATE PIN! She pushes Consuela off and scrambles to her feet-
Gia: LA RODILLA DE LA MUERTE!!!
SG1: MATRIX EVASION! RAINE AVOIDS THE RUNNING KNEE!
Gia: Consuela lands and bounces off the ropes-
Gia: CONSUELA MANAGES TO HOLD ONTO THE ROPES IN TIME! SPRINGBOARD MISSILE DROPKICK!
SG1: MEGAN SIDESTEPS FROM THE DROPKICK! CONSUELA HITS THE MAT HARD! DESTINY CALLS! THE OMOPLATA CROSSFACE HAS BEEN APPLIED! CONSUELA IS IN PAIN! SHE’S TRYING TO REACH THE ROPES! Raine has the submission locked in tight! Consuela’s trying to crawl her way to the ropes!
Gia: Megan is screaming at her to tap! Consuela has been champ for too long to give up now! She’s overcome too many odds! She’s inching her way closer!
SG1: MEGAN CHANGES THE DIRECTION BY PUSHING HER LEGS OFF THE ROPES! CONSUELA IS IN TROUBLE! THERE’S NOWHERE FOR HER TO GO! CONSUELA HAS HER HANDS RAISED! THE CHAMP IS ABOUT TO TAP! HER HAND IS GOING –
Gia: CONSUELA’S FEET ARE PULLED TO THE ROPES! IT’S FRANCESCA! SHE WOBBLED HER WAY FROM THE BACK! The ref sees the feet on the ropes! Megan doesn’t know what’s going on! The ref is telling her that she has a five count!
Ref: One! Two! Three! Four!
SG1: Megan lets go and turns around! She sees Francesca on the outside, giving her the finger!
Francesca: (off mic) Megan es basura!
Megan: You know what!? Fu-
Gia: REVERSE FRANKENSTEINER BY CONSUELA! MEGAN BOUNCES LIKE A BASKETBALL ACROSS THE RING! Consuela runs over to Megan and grabs her leg! AVA LOCK! SHE HOOKED THE LEG AROUND HER OWN AND HAS MEGAN’S UPPER BODY STRETCHED TO ITS LIMITS! MEGAN REACHES OUT WITH HER HAND! SHE CAN’T REACH THE ROPES! SHE’S TRYING TO TWIST HER WAY OUT OF THE SUBMISSION BY ROLLING ONTO HER SIDE!
SG1: Megan has taken the pressure off the leg, but her neck and back are still in agonizing pain! She needs to get Consuela on her back!
Gia: Consuela’s trying to keep her opponent in place!
SG1: Megan does it! She has Consuela on her back! She turns around and ends up in the mount position! Consuela wisely pushes her off with her legs! Megan stumbles back against the ropes as Consuela kip-ups! MEGAN IS KNOCKED OUT THE RING BY A FLYING CLOTHESLINE! CONSUELA RUNS THE ROPES AS MEGAN STRUGGLES TO HER FEET! BASEBALL SLIDE! MEGAN FALLS ONTO THE PADDED FLOOR! MEGAN RUNS BOUNCES AGAINST THE ROPES ONE MORE TIME! SUICIDE DIVE – SUPERKICK BY MEGAN! CONSUELA’S FACE EATS MEGAN’S FOOT FOLLOWED BY THE CANVAS!
Gia: As much as I hate to admit it, that was an impressive level of awareness on Megan’s part! Consuela’s laid out! Francesca runs over to her friend as Megan breathes a sigh of relief! She looks to finish the job but Francesca is preventing her from coming any closer!
SG1: Before the ref can start his count, Megan’s yelling at him to send Francesca away from ringside!
Gia: Francesca is pleading with the ref to stay, saying she’s there to support Consuela!
Megan: (yells) I’M SMASHING THE DUDE WHO WRITES YOUR CHECKS! NOW SEND HER AWAY!
SG1: The ref sighs and is telling Francesca to leave ringside! Francesca is losing her mind! She’s pleading with him to not leave but he’s threatening to call security! Francesca is leaving ringside! Things are now even between Megan and Consuela, who’s getting thrown back into the ring! Megan is going for a cover, hoping that surprise superkick will do the trick!
Gia: Consuela kicks out! There was too much time that passed since Megan hit that superkick! Raine’s not finished as she slowly gets Consuela to her feet! HEAVY RAINE! MEGAN HITS THE SMALL PACKAGE DRIVER!
Gia: CONSUELA BARELY KICKS OUT! MEGAN CAN’T BELIEVE IT!
SG1: Raine rushed that finisher. She was too consumed with ending the match that she didn’t have enough power to seal the deal! She has her hand on her face, wondering what to do next! Her eyes go wide! She has an idea! Consuela is whipped to the corner! Megan charges forward with a flying forearm! Nobody’s home as she crashes and burns against the turnbuckle!
Gia: Megan is in prime position as Consuela runs to the opposite corner, does a sliding turn and runs back to Megan! HANDSPRING ELBOW! Even deep in this match, Consuela still has enough stamina to show off her exceptional athleticism! Megan’s slumps in a seated position! Consuela goes for a stomp but Megan catches her foot and pushes her away! Consuela goes for a charging knee- drop toehold counter! Consuela’s face hits the top turnbuckle!
SG1: Megan’s delivering a couple of stiff shots before lifting Consuela to the top turnbuckle! What does she have in mind!? Consuela’s trying to kick her away! Megan takes a foot to the face! She stumbles back! She comes back with a FLYING FOREARM TO THE FACE! Consuela is doubled over on the top turnbuckle! Megan makes it to the second turnbuckle! Consuela fights back with a couple of forearm shots! Megan falls off!
Gia: Consuela perches herself on the top turnbuckle! She’s trying to stay balanced –
SG1: MEGAN LANDS AN ENZUIGIRI! CONSUELA IS STUNNED, BUT REMAINS ON THE TOP TURNBUCKLE! SHE HOPS TO THE SECOND TURNBUCKLE! WAIT! MEGAN CLIMBS TO THE TOP ROPE! CONSUELA’S RESISTING! SHE DOESN’T WANT TO GIVE IN! MEGAN’S DELIVERING BODY SHOT AFTER BODY SHOT! CONSUELA’S FIGHTING BACK! HEADBUTT TO MEGAN WHO FALLS FROM THE TOP! CONSUELA’S STANDING HIGH ON THE TOP TURNBUCKLE!
Gia: She wants to end this but I don’t know what she’ll do –
SG1: MEGAN JUMPS TO HER FEET AND UP THE TOP TURNBUCKLE! SHE LIFTS CONSUELA IN THE AIR! LOOK AT THAT HEIGHT AND DISTANCE! AVALANCHE FLAPJACK! CONSUELA LANDS ON HER FACE HALFWAY ACROSS THE RING! THE FANS ARE LOSING IT RIGHT NOW!
Gio: Ay Dios –
SG1: MEGAN’S CRAWLING OVER TO CONSUELA! SHE HAS EXPENDED EVERY AMOUNT OF ENERGY! SHE DRAPES AN ARM OVER CONSUELA!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“Studio” by Schoolboy Q & BJ The Chicago Kid plays as Megan slowly rolls off of Consuela, exhausted)
Jasmine Peyton: Your winner by pinfall and your NEW EAW Specialist Champion…MEGAN! RAINE!
SG1: She did it! She actually did it! Somehow Megan Raine pulled off the caper of the century!
Gia: After a lengthy back and forth, Megan dug deep and had enough guts to gain the biggest victory of her career! I may have my reservations, but she earned this!
(The referee helps up Megan, who’s staring at the title, speechless. Small tears fall down her face as she looks at the referee)
Gia: She can’t believe just as much as I can’t.
SG1: GIA! Anyways, Megan Raine said that the storm was coming! Well to all you folks at home – THE STORM IS HERE!
(Megan slowly climbs the nearest turnbuckle and raises the Specialist Championship in the air. The camera focuses on an unconscious Consuela Rose Ava for a moment before going back to a victorious Megan and fades to black)

( DING! DING! DING! )
Ring Announcer: This match is scheduled for ONE FALL and is a TRIPLE THREAT MATCH FOR THE EAW OPENWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP!
( “The Zephyr Song” by The Red Hot Chili Peppers blasts through the speakers as the entire crowd in the Stade Velodrome rise to their feet and begin a standing ovation. Stark emerges onto the stage and then makes his way to the ring, interacting with the crowd on the way down. )
Ring Announcer: Weighing in at two hundred and ten pounds… From New York City… He is “The Psychedelic Samurai”… STAAARRRKKKK!!!
And his opponent…
( “ULTRAnumb” (Exterminated Remix) by Blue Stahli takes over the speakers as half of the cheers in the Velodrome convert into boos. Cameron Ella Ava walks out onto the stage and then continues her way to the ring. )
Ring Announcer: Weighing in at one hundred and thirty pounds… From Los Angeles, California… CAMMERROONNNNN ELLLAAA AVVVAAA!!!
And their opponent…
( “Surfacing” by Slipknot begins to play. The crowd erupts into a roar of boos as Sheridan Muller steps out onto the stage. A wrathful expression defines her face as she starts to walk down the ramp. )
Ring Announcer: Weighing in at—
Stew-O: OH MY GOD IT’S TARAH NOVA!!!!!! TARAH NOVA!!!!! SHE’S GOT A BARBED WIRE BAT AND SHE’S CHARGING RIGHT AT SHERIDAN! SHERIDAN HAS NO IDEA!
Jake Mercer: TARAH JUST DRILLED THE BARBED WIRE BAT RIGHT INTO SHER’S SKULL! SHER FALLS FACE FIRST IMMEDIATELY AND TARAH ISN’T STOPPING! BLOOD IS POURING OUT OF SHER’S SKULL AND TARAH JUST KEEPS BEATING HER WITH IT!
Stew-O: SHE’S MOUNTING ON THE BACK OF SHER NOW AND SHE’S WRAPPING THE BARBED WIRE BAT AROUND HER THROAT! HOLY SHIT SHE’S CHOKING HER WITH IT AND SHER IS ALMOST LIFELESS!
Jake Mercer: What is Tarah doing now… SHE’S LOCKING IN A FULL NELSON, BUT WITH THE BARBED WIRE BAT IN PLACE! OH MY GOD SHE IS TEARING AT SHER WITH IT AND SHE HAS LOST CONSCIOUSNESS! SHER MIGHT ACTUALLY BE DEAD!
Stew-O: THIS IS SICKENING BUT DAMN IT WAS COMING! IF IT WASN’T TARAH IT WAS GONNA BE SOMEONE! TARAH STILL HASN’T LET GO!
( EAW Officials storm the ramp and pull Tarah and the barbed wire baseball bat away from Sheridan. Sheridan falls to the ground and doesn’t move. Blood is everywhere and still pouring out of her skull. It starts flowing like a river down the ramp. )
Jake Mercer: Cam and Stark seem to be enjoying this and may even be smiling right now. You weren’t kidding, everyone wanted her gone! But in poetic fashion, The Vixens Killer has killed off The Last Vixen, LIVE HERE AT KING OF ELITE!
( An ambulance drives onto the stage and then EMT’s run out down the ramp with a stretcher and hurry to Sheridan’s lifeless body. They try to stop the bleeding and then lift her up onto the stretcher. Tarah is standing on the ramp with Officials holding her back with the biggest grin on her face. They take Tarah out and then the EMT’s place Sheridan in the ambulance and drive away. )
Ring Announcer: Due to being unable to compete, this match is now a ONE-ON-ONE MATCH FOR THE EAW OPENWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP!
( Stark and Cam stare each other down as the EAW Openweight Championship is held high. An Official takes it to ringside. )
( DING! DING! DING! )
Stew-O: What a bloodcurdling way to start this match, but we are finally underway! Both Stark and Cam circle into the middle of the ring. Cam holds her hand out and Stark grabs a good of her arm and pulls her in! Cam is able to slide away and behind him and nails him in the head with a vicious elbow. Doesn’t seem to do too much, but Cam gets him again with another elbow strike! She’s near the ropes so she jumps on top AND SPRINGBOARD DROPKICK RIGHT TO STARKS FACE BRINGS HIM DOWN!
Jake Mercer: Cam doesn’t stop and has what it takes to bring the men of EAW down! She isn’t letting off either as she’s rebounding off the ropes and then connects a leg drop right onto Stark’s throat! She’s running for the ropes again and Stark is in a seated position. Cam charges at him and attempts a running knee strike, but Stark evades it! HE’S GOT CAM’S LEG AND SHE FALLS FACE FIRST! He grabs her other leg… WHEELBARROW FACEBUSTER! Stark grabs his head as he takes second to recover. He picks Cam up to a vertical base, then whips her into the corner turnbuckle. Her back collides with it and Stark comes charging at her now! He drives his knee right into her chest!
Stew-O: He’s holding onto her, Jake, and pulls her out of the corner! Now in the suplex position, Stark lifts her up! Stark’s stalling the suplex and just holding her there, letting all the blood rush down to her head! Smart way to weaken her quicker. OH BUT CAM IS ABLE TO GET SLIP OUT OF IT AND NOW THEY’RE BACK TO BACK! OH MY GOD! INVERTED STUNNER FROM CAMERON ELLA AVA! HAS THAT BEEN DONE BEFORE? STARK’S NECK JUST WENT A DIRECTION IT’S NOT EVEN SUPPOSED TO! I THINK IT TOOK THE BREATH OUT OF HIM! CAM GOES FOR THE FIRST COVER OF THE MATCH!
Jake Mercer: It’s not enough as Stark kicks out right after the two count! An amazing counter by Cam and I’m sure it’s taken a huge toll on Stark, but just not enough to win the Openweight Championship! She pulls Stark up to his feet and whips him into the ropes! Cam runs at him and he holds onto the ropes! STARK LIFTS CAMERON OVER THE ROPES WITH EASE! BUT SHE LANDS ON THE APRON! He runs at her again, but slides under the ropes! He’s got his back turned and Cam jumps onto the top rope FOR THE SPRINGBOARD MOONSAULT! OH MY GOD!
Stew-O: DID THAT JUST HAPPEN? STARK JUST MOVED TO THE SIDE OF CAM AS SHE’S PERFORMING THE MOONSAULT AND SUPERKICKED HER AS SHE WAS COMING DOWN! CAM IS LAID OUT FLAT AND STARK IS RUSHING TO GET HER BACK INTO THE RING! HE FOLLOWS IN RIGHT AFTER HER AND IMMEDIATELY JUMPS ON TOP OF HER FOR THE COVER!
Jake Mercer: IT’S NOT ENOUGH! CAM KICKS OUT! This match started out crazy, got even crazier with an inverted stunner, and then for Stark to superkick Cam as she’s doing a moonsault, I can’t believe this. I’m sure we still have some time left! These two will not give up easily! Stark lifts Cameron to her feet and sends her into the corner turnbuckle again! This time Cam jumps to the top rope! Stark runs and goes to sweep the leg! SHE JUMPS BEHIND HIM AND CONNECTS A DOUBLE KNEE BACKBREAKER WHILE ON THE WAY DOWN! STARK JUST GOT ABSOLUTELY DECIMATED AND IS WRITHING IN PAIN WHILE HOLDING HIS BACK! CAMERON GOES FOR THE COVER!
Stew-O: Just like you said, these two will not give up easily! Cam is starting to look a little pissed off as she’s pulling Stark up by the hair now! She whips him across the ring. NO! Stark reverses and sends her across the ring, rebounding against the ropes. Cam is running back at Stark and before he can do anything SHE CONNECTS A FOREARM SMASH TO HIS FACE! KNOCK BITCHES OUT! Someone is finally taking control! This match has been so back and forth! Oh wait… Stark is on one knee trying to get up and Cam isn’t wasting any time… GODDESS TOUCH! THE RUNNING ENZIGURI!
Jake Mercer: STARK BARELY GOT OUT OF THE WAY! HE’S BACK ON HIS FEET AND CAMERON TURNS AROUND TO A PELE KICK RIGHT TO HER FACE! Cam falls to the mat and Stark is stalking her now… He’s waiting for the right opportunity to strike. Cam is seated now. STARK CHARGES AT HER! THIS COULD BE IT! EGO DEATH! RUNNING KNEE TO THE HEAD! NO! CAM DUCKS! SHE GRABS STARK FROM BELOW AND ROLLS HIM UP! WHAT A COUNTER!
Stew-O: CAM WAS JUST A MILLISECOND AWAY FROM BECOMING THE EAW OPENWEIGHT CHAMPION! Stark kicked out just in time and both Cam and Stark are back on their feet as the crowd rises to their feet, giving these two Elitist’s the standing ovation they deserve. Stark runs right at Cam AND CHARGES WITH A SUPERMAN PUNCH! THE IRON FIST MISSES AS CAM DODGES AND CONNECTS A PELE KICK OF HER OWN! Stark falls onto the ropes instead of down to the mat! Cam jumps onto the top rope… SPRINGBOARD DROPKICK TO STARK’S FACE! AND LIFTS HIM UP, BUT HE DOESN’T FALL OVER! HE FALLS DOWN INSTEAD! Cam charges at Stark… CALF KICK TO THE FACE!
Jake Mercer: WAIT NO! STARK SLIDES OUT OF THE WAY AND CAM IS STUCK IN THE ROPES! STARK REALIZES THIS AND TAKES ADVANTAGE! He’s setting Cam up for a Rope-Hung DDT! HE CONNECTS IT! He’s got her right where he wants her to finish this match once and for all! Stark is stalking her again… she’s back to one knee… STARK FROM BEHIND… STARK’S REGARDS! THE SUPERKICK TO THE BACK OF CAM’S HEAD! THIS IS– NO SHE HEARD HIM COMING AND MOVED OUT OF THE WAY! CAM WITH THE DROPKICK TO STARK’S LEGS! He’s down on one knee now! SHE CHARGES AT HIM… IN EXCELSIS! RUNNING KNEE STRIKE RIGHT TO THE TEMPLE! STARK FALLS! AND CAM FALLS RIGHT ON TOP OF HIM!
( DING! DING! DING! )
Stew-O: CAMERON DID IT! SHE’S THE EAW OPENWEIGHT CHAMPION!
( “ULTRAnumb” (Exterminated Remix) by Blue Stahli blasts through the speakers as Cameron Ella Ava is handed the EAW Openweight Championship. She holds it right up to her face, then holds it high in the air. )
Ring Announcer: Your winner… AND THE NEW EAW OPENWEIGHT CHAMPION… CAMERON! ELLA! AVA!
Jake Mercer: That was a match for the record books. First Sher getting killed, the back and forth between Cam and Stark, and then the finish. Just an all around amazing match.
Stew-O: Damn, straight. With this Championship victory for Cam, it’s safe to say that there isn’t a single thing in this business that she can’t do.
Jake Mercer: With this win? We’ve known that for years! Cameron has always been in my personal top ten dead or alive, but this win only propels her to new heights!

Stew-O: Coming up next here at King of Elite, we have a showcase of two of the top talents of the Dynasty brand as Scott Oasis competes against Jacob Senn in singles competition! Both men are determined to walk out tonight with a victory in their name! All of this has been in response to an interference made by Jacob that cost Oasis a chance to advance the King of Elite Finals!
Jake Mercer: Jacob Senn caught himself in a situation that he shouldn’t have been in and now, he’s paying the consequences with a potential career-ending destruction at the hands of Scott Oasis! Tonight, this could be the last night that we see Jacob Senn inside an EAW ring much like what happened at House of Glass!
(“DNA” by Kendrick Lamar echoes throughout The Stade Velodrome to signal the arrival of Scott Oasis, jumping around in confidence as he stands at the stage to where he looks out towards the ring, only to be followed by Sebastian Monroe while walking down the ramp.)
Ring Announcer: Introducing first, he is from Baltimore, Maryland… weighing in at 260 pounds… accompanied to the ring by Sebastian Monroe… SC–
(Sebastian Monroe snatches the microphone away from the ring announcer as soon as he started to announce his name, shaking his finger as he motions for her to stand in the corner, as he clears his throat.)
Sebastian Monroe: Ladies and gentlemen, my name is Sebastian Monroe! Tonight, FIGHTING in the corner of THE TRUE Backbone of Dynasty, we have a man hailing from Baltimore and weighing in tonight at a massive 260 pounds of pure destruction targeted towards Jacob Senn! He is The Measuring Stick, he is The Gatekeeper, he is The Ice Man that will soon return to his frozen throne of champion… SCCOOOTTTTTTTTT OAASSSIIIISSSSS!!!
(Sebastian Monroe hands the microphone back to the ring announcer before returning the turnbuckle corner with Scott Oasis, who smirks and nods, seeming happy with the introduction.)
Stew-O: This match plays right into the favor of Scott Oasis! He has been undefeated against his opponent in every singles match that they have been in, he has been on a feeding frenzy of superstars ranging from Tomi Venus to Tyler Parker, and now he has another placed before him on a silver platter!
Jake Mercer: Well, it might turn out to be a major feast for The Ice Man, because he believes that Jacob Senn has his head somewhere else in this match, and I have to believe him. He’s been so fixated on Mr. DEDEDE and Nasir Escobar that it has cost him matches all throughout the year, but who knows? Maybe tonight can be different for him…
(“S.O.A.R.” by Devour The Day blasts from the speakers when we watch Jacob Senn walk out in his white and black attire, his leather jacket on with the hood over him, as he crouches down. Finally, he removes the hood and does the gun point towards his opponent in the ring before firing and walking down the ramp with a glare completely directed towards Scott Oasis.)
Ring Announcer: Introducing his opponent, he is from Chicago, Illinois… weighing in at 212 pounds… “Indestructible”.., “The Dark Knight”… “The Punisher”… JAACCCOOOOBBBBB SEENNNNNNNN!!!
Stew-O: Usually, you would see this maddened look in Jacob Senn’s eyes as he walks down the ramp, as he has been turned towards a state of vengeance towards two men that aren’t in this match, but he hasn’t even looked away for one second and remains locked in eyesight with Scott Oasis!
Jake Mercer: There seems to be a different demeanor tonight with Jacob Senn, to where he might be possibly be able to do what he set out to do in proving that he’s far from finished, and that’s he can redeem his past failures by starting with this one. He wants to deliver a loss to Scott Oasis by his hands for the first time in his career and I can’t wait to see if it turns out to be possible!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Stew-O: The match has been called to start and just listen to the capacity crowd here tonight! Scott Oasis stands in his corner with Sebastian Monroe whispering in his ear, looking ready to knock the head of Jacob Senn right of his shoulders tonight to parade around in celebration with! However, Jacob seems to be focused on his opponent, not even fazed with the reaction of the crowd that he would usually love to relish in! I think Jacob might have actually taken note of the last encounters they have had and has beamlined his intent right on walking out of this match with a victory! Knowing what has happened in the last half of the year considering matches, it hasn’t fared too well for him! However, this bloodthirsty crowd is ready to see some of the destruction that will be had in this match, as this will be an intense battle between these men for who will be left standing!
Jake Mercer: It will be a definite war as both men have already started to feel it out between them as we see Scott Oasis not fearing the chance to put the pressure against Jacob Senn, as he throws precise shots and kicks aimed towards his opponent, but Jacob inches away each time to avoid it. Scott keeps the pressure on his opponent BEFORE HE FINALLY LUNGES IN AND FORCES JACOB INTO THE TURNBUCKLE WITH A SHOULDER THRUST! HE WAS CORNERING HIS OPPONENT INTO THE TURNBUCKLE TO TRAP HIM AND NOW, HE’S TAKING IT IN STRIDE WITH JUST BURYING HIS SHOULDER RIGHT INTO SENN’S ABDOMEN! SCOTT JUST CUT THE RING IN HALF TO BE ABLE TO TAKE THIS LEAD IN THE MATCH AS HE GRABS JACOB BY THE NECK TO FLING HIM CLEAR ACROSS THE RING! JACOB DROPS DOWN ONTO THE CANVAS AND ROLLS TOWARDS THE OPPOSITE TURNBUCKLE TO GET TO HIS FEET! Just look at the face of Jacob Senn, he’s just been rocked by the champion, and been put in a daze already! He hoists himself up to his feet TO WHERE SCOTT SPRINTS IN AND LANDS WITH A STIFF KNEE RIGHT INTO THE STOMACH OF SENN! SEBASTIAN MONROE IS JUST ECSTATIC ABOUT THE AGGRESSION THAT OASIS IS BRINGING OUT TONIGHT AND LET’S NOT LIE, I WOULD BE TO IF I WAS HIM!
Stew-O: The Ice Man certainly is bringing a massive amount of destruction in this match already STILL DRIVING THOSE STIFF KNEES INTO THE STOMACH OF JACOB SENN BEFORE HE GRIPS HIM BY THE LONG LOCKS OF HAIR TO DRAG HIM ACROSS THE RING! LOOK AT SCOTT OASIS! HE’S JUST DRAGGING SENN ALONG LIKE HE’S NOTHING AT THIS POINT WITH JACOB DOING HIS BEST TO TRY AND ESCAPE OUT OF IT! Scott pushes Jacob down on all fours and places his knee on the back of Senn’s head FORCING IT DOWN INTO THE CANVAS WITH A BRUTAL KNEE SMASH INTO THE CANVAS! SCOTT IS JUST PICKING THIS MAN APART BIT-BY-BIT AS HE JUST MADE SENN EAT THE CANVAS ON THAT ONE! Scott just smirks in pride as he bounces around the ring a bit, savoring the destruction he’s delivering to his opponent, as he walks over to him to wrap his hands around his waist LIFTING HIM UP IN THE AIR AS HE THROWS HIM BACK FOR THE DEADLIFT GERMAN SUPLEX!
Jake Mercer: JACOB SENN HAS BEEN THROWN ACROSS THE RING RIGHT DOWN INTO THE CANVAS, SMACKING DOWN ON IT HARD, AS HE ROLLS OVER TOWARDS THE RING ROPES! Scott stands on his feet to see that Jacob is just struggling to get to his, chuckling it seems as he starts to walk over to him, before we see Senn pull himself to his feet! Jacob turns RIGHT INTO A SLAP ACROSS THE FACE FROM SCOTT TO WHERE HE GRABS HIM BY THE HEAD AND LOOKS TO BE SCREAMING RIGHT IN HIS FACE!
Scott Oasis: YOU WANTED THIS! YOU MADE THIS HAPPEN! FACE IT… YOU’RE NOTHING!
Stew-O: JACOB SENN RESPONDS TO THAT WITH A STIFF ELBOW STRIKE TO THE JAW OF SCOTT OASIS! Scott reels back a tad from the shot BUT HE STILL HAS JACOB IN HIS HANDS AS HE TURNS BACK WITH A SMILE ON HIS FACE! Scott nods his head to see that there’s still some fight left in Jacob BUT THAT QUICKLY COMES TO A SCREECHING HALT AS HE THROWS JACOB UP IN THE AIR TO DRIVE HIM DOWN WITH A POWERBOMB! THE TRAIN HAS STARTED! THE FIRST OF MANY POWERBOMBS IS ABOUT TO START WITH SCOTT PUNISHING HIM RIGHT NOW! SCOTT LIFTS HIM OFF THE CANVAS AND SPINS HIM AROUND FOR A SPINNING VARIANT OF THE POWERBOMB! TWO POWERBOMBS AND SCOTT SITS UP TO WHERE HE STARTS TO ROAR TO THE CROWD IN PRIDE TO WHERE JACOB STARTS TO ROLL OUTSIDE OF THE RING TO PREVENT A PIN ATTEMPT! Scott Oasis has just been on it right out of the gate of this match to where Jacob Senn hasn’t really been able to do anything against him in this match! The referee looks to start the count BUT SCOTT STOPS HIM AS HE ROLLS OUT TO JOIN JACOB ON THE OUTSIDE TO WHILE HE PUSHES HIMSELF ON HIS FEET!
Jake Mercer: Jacob Senn is stumbling outside of the ring in an attempt to stand back to his feet to fight off Scott Oasis BUT OASIS QUICKLY SNATCHES HIM AND THROWS HIM RIGHT INTO THE ANNOUNCE TABLE! JACOB IS SLAMMED INTO IT WITH A SICKENING THUD TO WHERE SCOTT JUST ENJOYS THE SIGHT OF IT! The referee is about to start counting Scott out if he doesn’t get Senn in the ring, deciding to lift Senn and throw him back into the ring, while he rolls back in himself! Scott stands on his feet and smiles towards this to where Jacob stands right back to his feet turning around TO WHERE SCOTT DROPS HIM WITH A THIRD DEVASTATING POWERBOMB! JACOB HAS BEEN FLATTENED WITH THE POWERBOMB WHILE SCOTT STARTS TO SIGNAL TO THE FANS THAT HE MIGHT BE WRAPPING THIS MATCH UP RIGHT HERE!
Stew-O: He just might as he starts to drag Jacob Senn by his hair up to his feet BUT NOT BEFORE SENN THROWS HIS HANDS OFF OF HIM AND STARTS LAYING INTO SCOTT OASIS WITH THE ELBOW STRIKES! THESE ARE SOME BOMBS FLYING RIGHT INTO SCOTT, TOO! He just keeps landing those shots in as we see Jacob start to force Scott back into the turnbuckle to corner him like he was previously BUT OASIS STRIKES WITH A GUT WRENCHING KNEE INTO HIS STOMACH! ONE KNEE! THAT’S ALL IT TOOK TO PUT HIS MOMENTUM TO A HALT AND RETURN TO THE DESTRUCTION CREATED BY THE ICE MAN! Scott pulls Jacob in between his legs and starts to look over towards the turnbuckle across from them THROWING JACOB UP ON HIS SHOULDERS AS HE COULD BE LOOKING TO TOSS SENN STRAIGHT INTO THE TURNBUCKLE! MONROE SINGS SONGS OF PRAISE ABOUT HIS CLIENT AT RINGSIDE TO WHERE SCOTT JUST STARTS TO GO FULL STEAM AHEAD TOWARDS THEM!
Jake Mercer: WHAT? JACOB SENN MIRACULOUSLY DROPS DOWN FROM THE SHOULDERS OF SCOTT OASIS AND COLLAPSES RIGHT INTO THE TURNBUCKLE! Scott stops himself before he turns around to see where Jacob ended up SPRINTING IN FOR ANOTHER SHOULDER THRUST TO KEEP HIM IN THE CORNER! JACOB LEAPS OVER THE CHARGING BEAST OF OASIS AND AVOIDS THE THRUST WHILE SCOTT NAILS THE TURNBUCKLE POST WITH HIS HEAD! He pulls himself out of the turnbuckle post and shakes his head from the shot as he stumbles back RIGHT INTO SENN WHO LEAPS IN THE AIR TO TOSS HIM BACK WITH THE REVERSE HURRICANRANA! SCOTT’S HEAD HAS BEEN SPIKED DOWN ONTO THE CANVAS WITH JACOB ABLE TO FIND AN OPENING WITH THAT! However, I don’t know how much he’ll be able to capitalize with it as it seems he might be having trouble getting up to his feet as we already see Scott starting to roll over to where he can pick himself up!
Stew-O: Jacob Senn starts to make it to his feet as does Scott Oasis RIGHT WHEN JACOB STRIKES WITH AN FOREARM TO THE FACE! He lands another shot before striking with a shoot kick to the stomach SPINNING BACK TO ROCK OASIS IN THE FACE WITH THE SPINNING BACKFIST! YOU CAN SEE THE SPIT FLY OUT OF HIS MOUTH BEFORE HE ROLLS BACK FOR THE LARIAT! NO! OASIS DUCKS UNDER IT AND AVOIDS THE LARIAT WITH JACOB MISSING WILDLY! Scott turns himself back around RIGHT INTO A THRUST KICK TO THE STOMACH BY SENN THAT SENDS HIS OPPONENT DOWN TO HIS HANDS AND KNEES! Jacob is able to keep his footing ALLOWING HIM TO FLIP BACK AND LAND A BRUTAL PELÉ KICK TO THE BACK OF HIS NECK AND HEAD! BOTH MEN COLLAPSE DOWN TO THE FLOOR AS YOU CAN TELL THAT THEY ARE GOING ABOVE AND BEYOND IN THIS ONE!
Jake Mercer: The resiliency of Jacob Senn has started to play into effect here given that he’s still able to do what he does in that ring after such abuse at the hands of Scott Oasis, but the toughness from Scott is also shown to where he’s just been a monster that hasn’t been able to stay down for very long! LIKE RIGHT NOW! He’s already starting to pick himself up as we see Jacob Senn standing up to his! He knows that he’s going to have to do something big right here and that’s why we see The Punisher exiting out of the ring onto the ring apron SCREAMING FOR THE BIG MAN TO STAND UP TO HIS FEET! Oasis starts to hoist himself up to his feet as he turns his attention over to his opponent WHO LEAPS ON THE TOP ROPE FOR THE SPRINGBOARD HIGH KNEE STRIKE TO TRY AND KEEP HIM DAZED! CAUGHT! OASIS CATCHES HIM IN MID-AIR AS HE SWINGS HIM AROUND TO DROP HIM STRAIGHT DOWN INTO THE CANVAS WITH THE PRELUDE TO DESTRUCTION! THE REVERSE-SPIN SCOOP POWERSLAM FROM OASIS DROPS THE PUNISHER TO WHERE MONROE STANDS BESIDE HIM CLAPPING IN ADULATION! OASIS HOOKS SENN BY THE LEG AND HOPES THAT THIS MIGHT BE ABLE TO PUT HIS OPPONENT AWAY RIGHT HERE!
Referee: ONNNEEE!!!… TWWWOOO!!
Stew-O: ALMOST, BUT NOT ENOUGH! JACOB SENN IS A MAN OF SUCH PASSION AND TENACITY THAT HE WON’T DIE DOWN RIGHT HERE! Scott Oasis has been shown that it will take more than that to keep this man down, picking himself back up to his feet as you can see that exhaustion has taken hold, while Jacob uses the ropes to get back to his! Scott rushes over to the ropes LOOKING TO KNOCK SENN OVER THE TOP ROPE AND ONTO THE FLOOR WITH THE LARIAT! NO! JACOB DROPS DOWN AND HOLDS ONTO THE TOP ROPE WHILE OASIS IS SENT FLYING OVER THE TOP ROPE AND ONTO THE FLOOR! Jacob pulls himself back up to his feet and looks down to see that Scott is pushing himself back up to his feet GIVING HIM REASON TO SPRINT BEHIND HIM INTO THE ROPES! HE’S COMING WITH A FULL HEAD OF STEAM TOWARDS SCOTT! SUICIDE DIVE! HE FLIES THROUGH THE MIDDLE ROPE TO SEND SCOTT RIGHT INTO THE BARRICADE BEFORE HE SLIDES BACK INTO THE RING AND SPRINTS AGAIN TO THE OTHER SIDE OF THE RING! Scott pulls himself out of the barricade with the intention of getting back into the ring ONLY FOR JACOB TO FLY RIGHT THROUGH THE MIDDLE ROPE AGAIN WITH THE SUICIDE DIVE TO KEEP THE MONSTER AT BAY! Sebastian Monroe is screaming his head off for the referee to do something while Jacob slides back into the ring to continue this aerial assault that has proven to work against The Ice Man!
Jake Mercer: Scott Oasis is doing his best to try and combat this as he pulls himself out of the turnbuckle again BUT JACOB SENN FLIES OVER THE TOP ROPE AND ONTO HIS OPPONENT WITH THE FOSBURY FLOP! HE NAILS IT ALL AS HE ROLLS UP TO HIS FEET AND STARTS TO SCREAM WITH ALL THAT ADRENALINE RUSHING THROUGH HIM! He nearly collapses while doing this though as he leans onto the barricade and watches as Scott Oasis is STILL picking himself up with ease! This monster is just another force of nature at this point, Stew! Jacob grabs Scott however AND JUST CHUNKS HIM RIGHT INTO THE STEEL STEPS WHILE ALMOST DROPPING TO THE FLOOR HIMSELF TO DO SO WITH THE AMOUNT OF FORCE HE PUT BEHIND! THE SOUND OF FLESH MEETING STEEL IS HORRENDOUS WITH SCOTT OASIS FLIPPING OVER THE STEPS AND ONTO THE FLOOR! The referee is trying to tell both men to get back into the ring and Jacob nods his head over towards the referee, pushing himself up to his feet to grab Scott by the head, using all the strength he has to lift him up and throw him into the ring!
Stew-O: Jacob Senn rolls back into the ring with Scott Oasis as both men push themselves up to their feet WITH OASIS STRIKING WITH A BOMB OF A RIGHT HAND TO ROCK THE PUNISHER! LOOK! JACOB INSTANTLY RESPONDS WITH A ROLLING ENZIGURI THEY BOTH DROP LIKE A SACK OF BRICKS! THESE MEN ARE AT EACH OTHER’S THROATS RIGHT NOW! Jacob starts to roll his way out of the ring and onto the apron, using the ropes to pick himself up to his feet, as he starts to laser onto the fallen Oasis JUMPING ONTO THE TOP OF THE ROPE TO LEAP FOR THE SPRINGBOARD 450 SPLASH! HE LANDS IT ONTO THE CHEST OF THE ICE MAN, BUT JACOB SHAKES HIS HEAD AS HE STARTS TO ROLL BACK TO HIS FEET! He pushes himself up and walks towards the turnbuckle, pulling himself up to the top of the turnbuckle to where he could possibly end this match right here! He makes it to the top as he looks down towards Scott to make sure he’s lifeless BEFORE HE LEAPS AND SPINS BEAUTIFULLY IN THE AIR FOR THE VINDICATION! THE CORKSCREW SENTON BOMB LANDS RIGHT ONTO SCOTT OASIS AS HE HOOKS HIS LEG IN FOR THE PIN ATTEMPT! COULD HE DO IT RIGHT HERE?
Jake Mercer: SCOTT OASIS THROWS JACOB SENN RIGHT OFF OF HIM TO KICK OUT OF THE PIN AS JACOB ONLY GETS A ONE-COUNT! A ONE-COUNT, STEW! HE’S NOT GOING OUT OF THIS MATCH RIGHT HERE AND SEBASTIAN MONROE IS IN THE BACKGROUND CALLING FOR HIS CLIENT TO GET UP WITH JACOB GETTING HIMSELF UP TO HIS FEET! Jacob stands on his feet and walks back towards the turnbuckle to where he starts to line Scott Oasis up LOOKING TO END THIS MATCH WITH THE SHADOW STEP! Scott starts to push himself up to his feet WHEN JACOB SPRINTS IN TO STOMP HIS FACE INTO THE CANVAS WITH THE CURB STOMP! WHAT? SCOTT SHOOTS UP FROM HIS FEET AND CATCHES SENN ON HIS SHOULDERS TO PREVENT HIM FROM LANDING THE SHADOW STEP! JACOB IS STRIKING WITH KNEES TO THE FACE OF OASIS, BUT HE SEEMS TO BE UNFAZED AS HE WALKS TOWARDS THE CENTER OF THE RING FOR THE SEEK AND DESTROY! HOLD UP! JACOB ROLLS DOWN THE BACK OF OASIS TO HOOK HIS LEG TO TRANSITION INTO THE SURFBOARD STRETCH! HE GRABS OASIS BY THE HEAD AND PULLS HIS HEAD UNDER HIS ARM FOR THE GRIM MEMENTO! JACOB HAS OASIS LOCKED IN THE SURFBOARD DRAGON SLEEPER AS HE LOOKS TO EITHER SUBMIT HIM OR FORCE HIM TO PASS OUT!
Stew-O: SCOTT OASIS IS REACHING OUT FOR A CHANCE TO TRY AND ESCAPE, BUT JACOB SENN KEEPS THE HOLD LOCKED IN TIGHT TO CHOKE HIM OUT! HE’S REARING BACK ON THE HOLD AS MUCH AS HE CAN, BUT THIS IS GOING TO GIVE OASIS AN OPENING THAT HE HAS JUST NOTICED! JACOB KEEPS SQUEEZING AND CHOKING WHILE OASIS LIFTS HIS HAND OUT AS HE COULD BE LOOKING TO SUBMIT TO THE GRIM MEMENTO, BUT SCOTT QUICKLY GRABS SENN BY THE BACK OF HIS HEAD TO SHOVE RIGHT INTO THE CANVAS! HE CONTINUES TO BASH SENN’S HEAD INTO THE CANVAS BEFORE HE FINALLY IS ABLE TO GET OUT OF THE SUBMISSION AND ROLL AROUND TOWARDS THE TURNBUCKLE! Both men have taken serious damage from this contest with Scott pulling himself up with the help of the turnbuckle as Jacob uses what strength he has left to stand up on his own two feet! Jacob stumbles around a bit as the toll is starting to be taken from this match to where he notices Oasis getting to his feet SPRINTING IN FOR THE RUNNING CORNER KNEE STRIKE! OH MY GOODNESS! SCOTT THROWS SENN UP IN THE AIR ONTO HIS SHOULDERS, BUT JACOB HOLDS ONTO THE TOP OF THE TURNBUCKLE!
Jake Mercer: NOT SO FAST! SCOTT OASIS HAS TOO MUCH POWER IN HIM FOR THAT TO WORK WHERE HE SNATCHES JACOB SENN WITH EASE OUT OF THE CORNER AS HE DIRECTS HIM TO THE CENTER OF THE RING! SEEK AND DESTROY! HOLD UP! JACOB HOPS OFF THE SHOULDERS OF OASIS TO WHERE HE LANDS ON HIS FEET BEHIND SCOTT! Scott turns around RIGHT INTO A PELÉ KNEE FROM SENN AS YOU CAN HEAR THE SMACK FROM IT ALL AROUND THE STADE VELODROME! SCOTT COLLAPSES TO THE GROUND BEFORE JACOB STUMBLES BACK INTO THE ROPES TO WHERE HE DOES A GUN POINT TOWARDS HIS FALLEN OPPONENT! THIS COULD BE IT! Scott starts to rise up when Jacob sprints in JUMPING IN THE AIR FOR THE SHADOW STEP! HE DROPS SCOTT’S HEAD RIGHT DOWN INTO THE CANVAS WITH THE CURB STOMP TO MAKE HIM EAT THE CANVAS! JACOB NEARLY COLLAPSES ON TOP OF SCOTT TO WHERE HE ROLLS HIM ONTO HIS SHOULDERS TO HOOK HIS LEG IN FOR THE PIN ATTEMPT!
Referee: ONNNEEE!!!… TWWWOOO!!!… THHHRRREEE!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“S.O.A.R.” by Devour The Day plays in the background with Jacob Senn sitting up after pinning his opponent, pushing his way up to his feet, stumbling from the exhaustion and pain delivered to him as the referee raises his hand high in the air.)
Ring Announcer: Here is your winner… JAACCCOOOOBBBBB SEENNNNNNNN!!!
Stew-O: HE HAS FINALLY DONE IT! IN HIS FIRST MATCH OF THE NEW YEAR, JACOB SENN HAS FINALLY WON A MATCH AND AGAINST A MAN THAT HE HAS NEVER BEEN ABLE TO DEFEAT! With that being said, I have to believe that he has done what he set out to do tonight, in giving a message that he’s FAR from finished in his career!
Jake Mercer: Scott Oasis was in firm control in the start of this match, but one opening changed the entire stage of this match entirely! Scott wanted to make sure that he would walk out of this match with the victory once again, but Jacob was able to pull the upset and move forward to the next chapter of his career!
(Jacob Senn looks down at Scott Oasis, doing the gun point taunt to him and mirroring firing the gun at him, before he looks straight to the camera with a smile on his face. He mouths that he’s not finished as the camera fades away from the ring.)

(Highlights are played showcasing Lars Grier rise from being viewed as a New Breed competitor to a serious main event force with him becoming the number one contender for the Heavyweight Championship by defeating Keelan Cetinich. Lars Grier passionately talking about the World Title is aired side by side with clips and media reports of Jamie O’Hara and his historic reign, culminating in him receiving Elitist of The Year for 2017. Their feud is delved into with Jamie O’Hara slapping Lars across the face, Lars costing Jamie a match and giving him his first pinfall loss all season, then to the confrontation between Jamie and Lars on the Xmas edition of Voltage with Lars spearing Cameron Ella Ava through a glass raven.)
(The camera transitions back to the Stade Velodrome. The audience is at a fever pitch, excited for what is about to take place. The camera swings around the crowd and Chris Elite is shown in attendance, having finally arriving in the seat that had been reserved for him. Big Mike is sitting next to him, clapping with the audience. The two seem very interested in watching the match, encouraging things to get underway before cutting back to the Ring Announcer standing in the ring.)
Rebecca Sawyer: The following contest is set for ONE FALL! And it’s for the EAW World HEAVYWEIGHTTTT CHAMPIONSHIPPP..!!!
(The lights in the Stade Velodrome turn to pitch black as the crowd begins to murmur, confused yet excited for what is to come. There is silence in the arena until what sounds like the strings of a deep bass guitar echo throughout the ring, ending with a low E-string. A spotlight then turns on and shines to reveal the band, Royal Blood, standing on a platform next to the stage, wearing special purple and red attires. Mike Kerr, the bass guitarist plays the same set of low bass guitar strings yet again as the crowd claps for the performers, until a second spotlight shines to reveal Lars Grier. He wears a coat made of black feathers with medieval-like armor under it, animatronic Raven wings are by his side, flapping, as well as a raven skull mask with blood red goggles that represent the eyes. The same set of guitar strings continue to play as Lars stands on a platform that is obscured by smoke, giving off the appearance that he is descending down from the sky. The spotlights continue to shine, as well as the strings playing until he is lowered down. The spotlights fade slowly into darkness, the only sound being the drum sticks hitting against each other, to which then “Out of the Black” starts. The lights come back on, flashing to the beat of the drum before turning into red and purple strobe lights that move around the arena which prompts Lars to walk down slowly to the ramp. When the song reaches its chorus, Lars slides into the ring where he spreads his arms wide and the Raven wings extend.)
Kawajai: An epic entrance for the challenger here in the biggest match of his career so far! Lars Grier looks ready for this; he has wanted a World Championship match since he first came to EAW a little over a year ago! Lars Grier has stepped up big time this season to get to this place and you have to think he has an advantage after interrupting the special moment between the champion and Cameron Ella Ava obviously getting underneath the skin of Jamie O’ Hara.
(The lights in the arena dim as Lars’ entrance video goes out. The camera zooms in closely on the titantron as we are shown footage taking us back to Grand Rampage 2017, the night where Jamie O’Hara won the World Heavyweight Championship in a triple threat with Jacob Senn and Xavier Williams. From that moment on we are given a highlight reel of his career afterward, showing rapid fire images of each of his defenses from his match at Burning Desire to closing off his rivalry with Xavier Pain For Pride, transitioning to his Voltage run and showing him facing Cameron Ella Ava at Territorial Invasion, winning at Ground Zero and walking away from his matches victorious at Road to Redemption and Shock Value. Each clip ends the same way: with Jamie standing by at the stage, holding the WHC proudly. “Kashmir” By Led Zeppelin begins to play as Jamie O’Hara makes his entrance onto the stage with the World Heavyweight Championship around his waist, soon lifting the belt up to give the same pose as he had done on the video. He then places the belt over his shoulder as he stares a hole into Lars while walking down to the ramp and entering the ring.)
Nick Angel: That compilation honestly does not do this justice – we are damn near nine months into this World Heavyweight title reign, that is almost unheard of. Jamie O’Hara has had one hell of a run, from all of the people he’s beaten, to how many wins he had without fail, to the Elitist of The Year award that he just won! Jamie has momentum and incredible experience. But like you said, the champion might be at an emotional, or I suppose mental disadvantage after what happened involving the challenger, himself and Cameron. Lars has tried to get in this man’s head ever since this match was announced but if there’s one thing we know about Jamie it’s that he is very good at doubling down and getting focused when it comes to these big time matches.
(Camera transitions back to Rebecca Sawyer standing in the center of the ring as both men are in opposite corners)
Rebecca Sawyer: Introducing first, the challenger! From Cincinnati, Ohio! Weighing in at 275 Pounds! He is “The Raven” LAAAARRRRSSSSSSSSS GRRIEEEEEERRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!
(Lars raises his hands high in the air as he gets to the center of the ring as Jamie O’Hara gets into his face as well and holds the Heavyweight title in the air to display)
Rebecca Sawyer: Introducing in the corner to my left, weighing in tonight at 190 Pounds! From Melbourne, Australia! HE IS THE CURRENT REIGNING AND DEFENDING E! A! W! WORRRLLDDDDD HEAAAVYYYWEIGHTTTTTTT CHAAAAMPIONNN!!!!! ..Isseiki Ni Ichido; “Once In a Century”…..JAAAAMMMMIIIIIIEEEEEEEEEE O’HARRRRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!
(The referee takes the World Heavyweight Championship, displaying it high in the air before handing it to the timekeeper before signaling for the bell.)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Kawajai: There’s the bell and it is time for the World Heavyweight Championship match to get underway! RIGHT OUT OF THE GATE JAMIE RUNS OUT OF HIS CORNER, TAKING THE FIGHT TO LARS GRIER! OUR CHAMPION IS BACKING HIM IN THE CORNER WITH STRIKES! BODY SHOTS! FOREARMS! BODY SHOTS! Jamie O’Hara letting out his anger from the past few weeks here! Lars is covering up, weathering the storm before driving his knee into the mid-section of the champion to stop his opening burst of offense! Jamie O’Hara is hunched over from the shot as Lars follows that up with a clubbing blow to the back, Lars then grabs Jamie and throws him into the corner, reversing the situation! Lars DRIVING HIMSELF INTO THE RIBS OF JAMIE WITH A FORCEFUL SHOULDER THRUST! He just knocked the wind out of Jamie with that and he is not letting up as he carries on repeatedly driving his shoulder into the mid-section! He pulls Jamie by the arm out of the corner AND FLOORS HIM WITH A CLOTHESLINE! Jamie holding the back of his neck as the whiplash effect caused him to hit the mat hard! Lars with the obvious power advantage as he has Jamie where he wants him, grounding him with a headlock, leaving his body weight on the smaller Jamie as I’m sure it’s getting difficult to breathe!
Nick Angel: Jamie is trying to make it to a vertical base but Lars is using his power to keep him down. The Champion pushes against the pressure being placed down upon him, he slowly starts to rise to his feet, shot to the mid-section! And another big shot! Jamie creating distance! As he connects with another body blow! Jamie O’Hara is free – but OH! Lars ends up stopping that momentum! Lars literally using his head as a battering ram with the headbutt into Jamie, knocking him back into the corner! Lars makes his way over to Jamie and connects with huge right hand! Lars grabbing Jamie and whips him into the opposite corner! Lars full speed ahead runs at Jamie! Jamie manages to get his boot up into the face of the challenger as he’s momentarily stunned! Jamie comes firing out of that corner with a European Uppercut! Lars still dazed, Jamie adds to the onslaught as he fires a forearm strike! Jamie runs off the ropes and hits another forearm! Jamie gathering momentum again as he runs! Lars quickly scooping Jamie up, AND SLAMS HIM DOWN HARD INTO THE CANVAS WITH A SCOOP SLAM!
Kawajai: Jamie planted hard into the canvas but Lars doesn’t let up his attack as Jamie is on all floors, Lars positioning himself correctly before DRIVING HIS KNEE INTO THE RIBS OF JAMIE! AND HE DOES IT AGAIN! REPEATED KNEE STRIKES TO THE RIBS OF THE CHAMPION! Lars has had the number of the champion so far, everything he’s done he has had a response for! Lars Grier now admiring his work as Jamie is grimacing in pain on the mat. Lars grabs Jamie up to his feet, holding him up by the chin as he measures him for closed fist shot that ends knocking Jamie into the ropes! The referee warning Lars about using those close fist as he ignores him! Irish-whip by Lars, he goes for a back body drop! GOD! Jamie with a PUNT KICK to the skull! Jamie backs himself up, SHOTGUN KICK KNOCKING LARS TO THE OUTSIDE FLOOR! Jamie catching a breathe as Lars is pulling himself up with help from the ring apron, Jamie spots him! RUNS! LOW-PE SUICIDA!!

Jamie slumps on the bottom rope before falling to the outside floor, Lars grabbing Jamie up to his feet and picking him up, FLAPJACK into the barricade as Jamie just falls to the floor! Lars rolling himself in the ring breaking the referee’s count!
Nick Angel: Lars coming back to the outside as Jamie is by the steel steps hurting! This is not how he expected things to go to start things off. Lars is looking confident as he readies himself for something big, waiting for Jamie as he slowly turns around! Jamie is in position AND LARS RUNS FOR THE RAVEN’S BEAK SPEAR INTO JAMIE!!! WATCH OOUUUTT!! Lars Grier ALMOST connected but the Champion side steps it at the last second and Lars goes CRASHING into the steel steps! What a collision as the impact causes the steps to be knocked over! Jamie resting on the barricade now that he has a few seconds to himself but he really needs to pick up the pace. He catches one more quick breath and then turns to survey the situation. Lars is favoring his shoulder as Jamie grabbing Lars by his hair and is able to get the big man into the ring! Jamie rolls himself inside as Lars is on his knees with an expression of pure agony while he holds his right shoulder, Jamie now has a target as he sends a stiff shoot kick to that shoulder! AND HE SENDS ANOTHER HARD SHOOT KICK TO THAT SHOULDER! Lars making his way to his feet, Jamie with a body shot, spinning back kick to the mid-section! Lars is kneeling over as Jamie runs off the ropes for a BICYCLE KNEE! Lars is knocked loopy from the hit but manages to get himself out of the way from a further attack, he goes to the nearest corner, but Jamie runs at him with a running double knee hit into the corner! Jamie climbing up to the middle rope, standing over Lars as he begins to delivering stiff punches to the top of the skull of Lars! ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FI-!
Kawajai: Lars LIFTS HIM IN A POWERBOMB POSITION!! Jamie trying to fight out of it! Lars walking with Jamie in his grasp, he picks up speed, JAMIE SUNSET FLIPS!! He tries to pull Lars down into a pinning predicament, Lars is struggling to stand but soon finds a balance and gets his footing as he wraps his hands around the neck of Jamie and pulls him up to his feet, Jamie breaks from his grasp, SPINNING BACKHAND!

Jamie riving in pain after that as Lars quickly hooking the leg here!
Ref: ONNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!
Nick Angel: JAMIE SHOOTS THE SHOULDER UP! Jamie holding the lower back as Lars rises to his feet and positions himself in the corner, Jamie stirring, Lars chomping at the bit just waiting for the champion to turn around so he an rip him in half! Jamie pulls himself up to his feet but he’s not going to like what’s waiting for him! LARS RUNS.. RAVENS BREAK!!!!! JAMIE MANAGES TO MOVE OUT OF THE WAY ONCE AGAIN AND SEND LARS WITH HIS OWN MOMENTUM CRASHING SHOULDER FIRST INTO THE STEEL RING POST!! Lars falls to the outside floor holding that right arm, Jamie runs.. RUNNING BASEBALL SLIDE DROPKICK KNOCKING LARS INTO THE BARRICADE!! Jamie picking up the pace, he eyes Lars.. RUNS!! TOPE SUICIDA AND THIS TIME HIS HIGH RISK MOVE PAYS OFF! JAMIE COLLIDING INTO LARS AS BOTH MEN ARE DOWN ON THE OUTSIDE!!! Jamie is obviously the first to stir. He pulls himself up as the champion has caught his second wind! He grabs Lars up by his hair, drags him around ringside, AND HE SLAMS HIS HEAD INTO THE BARRICADE!! He isn’t done as he makes his way over to our Voltage announce desk SLAMMING LARS HEAD OFF OUR TABLE!
Kawajai: HE REPEATEDLY SMASHES THE FACE OF THE CHALLENGER INTO OUR TABLE! Jamie finally lets go as Lars’ knees buckle and he falls onto the floor due to being too weak to stand on his own after that. A STOMP TO THE CHEST! Jamie is making up for what had happened to him throughout the match so far! He looks around and his eyes get wide before he begins to uncover the Voltage announce table! Jamie is like a man possessed as he ravages our table, removing our monitors and clearing off our desk, the champion is looking to follow through with his promise to end Lars tonight! He grabs Lars and places him onto the table and quickly climbs his way onto the table, Jamie looking out at the sea of people in the Stade Velodrome! He grabs Lars up, HE’S LOOKING FOR THE SINGLE UNDERHOOK BRAINBUSTER!! He picks him up – UGH! AS HE TRIES TO LIFT LARS HIS BACK GIVES OUT!! THE EARLY ASSAULT IS COMING INTO PLAY! Jamie keeps trying until Lars fights out of it, AND SENDS ANOTHER HEADBUTT TO BRIDGE OF THE NOSE OF JAMIE! Lars throwing Jamie off of the table as the referee’s count is at six, Lars quickly grabs Jamie who has a cut at the bridge of his nose and sends in the ring and he follows!

Ref: ONNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! THRRR—-
Kawajai: NO, KICKOUT!!!!! LARS SHOWING SIGNS OF LIFE AS HE RAISES HIS ARM FROM THE CANVAS! As soon as Lars gets that arm up Jamie transitions from a lateral press into a front chancery, guiding Lars up AND THEN SLAMMING HIM DOWN WITH THE COUNTDOWN TO MIDNIGHT, THE INVERTED DEATH VALLEY DRIVER! LARS FALLING RIGHT ON HIS FACE! JAMIE GETS UP FROM THE DELIVERY OF THAT MOVE AND HITS A KNEE DROP TO THE BACK OF LARS’ HEAD! Jamie has had enough as he signals the end of Lars with a cutthroat signal, he crawls over to the corner and watches closely, begging for Lars to get up! An unaware Lars Grier sits up to a knee as Jamie! OH! JAMIE TAKING OFF WITH RUNNING BICYCLE KNEE STRIKE! IN EXCELIS! LARS ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY!! Lars quickly rushing up to his feet Jamie turns into a UPPERCUT BY LARS! Jamie fires back with a FOREARM!
Nick Angel: This is becoming a back and forth exchange! Lars Grier with a forearm of his own! Jamie O’Hara hits the ropes, returning like a pendulum — AND RESPONDS WITH A SHOTEI! A POWERFUL OPEN PALM THRUST GIVEN BY JAMIE O’HARA AS EVERYONE IN THE FRONT ROW CRINGES FROM THE SOUND CREATED BY THE IMPACT! Lars Grier was spun around from that hit and is stumbling about in a seesaw battle to keep himself up! He keeps moving about on spaghetti legs, circling back to Jamie as after a long struggle with himself he regains his composure! Jamie meets him with a sickening chop to the chest but Lars just eats that shot, holding in any sign of pain and puffing his chest out! Lars now driving his knee into the gut of Jamie! Jamie backs up before, SPINNING WITH A ROLLING ELBOW!! Lars still standing on his feet! Jamie hooking up Lars by his head! HE RUNS!! HE’S LOOKING FOR SLICED BREAD NUMBER TWO!!! LARS HOLDS THOUGH!! OH MY GOD!! THE POWER OF LARS AS HE BLOCKS AND MUSCLES JAMIE UP!! JAMIE HAS BEEN FLIPPED OVER ONTO LARS SHOULDERS! Lars is wincing but he fights through the pain! He walks around with Jamie — AND HE JUST THROWS JAMIE OUT OF THE RING TO THE UNFORGIVING FLOOR WITH A GORILLA PRESS SLAM! JAMIE GOES FLYING AS HE HITS THE RINGSIDE AREA HARD!
Kawajai: JESUS! Jamie O’Hara trying to land on his feet or at least protect himself but with the way he was falling it was hard to brace for it! He rolls about floor and lets out a shout! Jamie is letting out obscenities as he seems more angry than worried about his health. Jamie O’Hara is determined, forcing himself as he starts to gather his senses quicker than expected from this. Meanwhile in the ring Lars Grier has fallen down into a seated position. He had to have done some further damage to his shoulder with those strenuous maneuvers. Lars Grier lets out a huff as he picks himself up. This match keeps on finding a way to return to the outside but in my opinion that might have been a bad move for Lars Grier. With how hurt he is and with what he just did to Jamie, he runs the risk of a countout and that’s going to lead to a default retain for Jamie! Lars better hustle! Lars Grier is making his way to the side of the ring that Jamie is recovering at. He leans against the ropes and looks down at the Champion who is just now returning to a vertical base. The referee is closing in on his count but Lars puts his hand and gestures for him to stop as Lars is now stepping between the ropes to break it!
Nick Angel: Jamie O’Hara is right below Lars Grier, using the ring tarp to drag himself up. Lars is at that very same apron and you can see a satisfied look on his face as Jamie looks up at him in surprise! Lars Grier with a drive by — OH, JAMIE CATCHING IT OUT OF INSTINCT! HE TRIPS LARS UP AND LARS GOES FALLING ON HIS BACK RIGHT ON THE EDGE OF THE RING! Jamie O’Hara just bought himself some time as he takes a few steps back and re-positions the ring steps that were knocked over earlier! He appears to have quickly thought up some kind of plan here and is rushing to put it into action! Jamie is walking up those steps that he put back near the ring post and now on the apron right next to Lars!
Kawajai: Jamie O’Hara is climbing up the top turnbuckle, stepping over onto the side of the ring Lars is at! Jamie O’Hara is sat on the top of the turnbuckle as Lars Grier has shook the cobwebs and is standing back up on that ring apron…no…no…..JAMIE O’HARA DIVES OFF OF THE TURNBUCKLE ONTO LARS, LATCHING ONTO HIM AS HE DROPS DOWN! “YOU’RE FUCKED CUNT”! JAMIE O’HARA BUSTING OUT THE TRIANGLE CANADIAN DESTROYER, DROPPING LARS GRIER RIGHT ON HIS HEAD! LARS GRIER FALLS OFF OF THE APRON IN A HEAP AS JAMIE O’HARA HOOKS HIS ARM AROUND THE MIDDLE ROPE TO KEEP HIMSELF FROM FALLING WITH HIM! JAMIE O’HARA LOOKS DOWN WITH A SMIRK ON HIS FACE; HE JUST DRILLED THAT MAN! LARS IS SHAKING, CONVULSING ON THE GROUND FROM THE SENSATION! I CAN NOT BELIEVE WHAT I JUST SAW! CAN WE GET A SECOND LOOK AT THAT?
(A slow motion replay is shown of Jamie O’Hara leaping off of the turnbuckle, flipping Lars over as we can see Lars’ neck bend upon hitting the ring apron, followed by him taking a rough tumble to the floor.)
Kawajai: It’s hard to watch, just look at how he fell! Lars Grier’s shoulder is certainly aggravated, he landed right on his side! There’s no way to defend yourself against something like that! The crowd is all murmuring wondering Lars’ status. Chris jumped out of his seat from that; Jamie put all of his fury behind that and it looks like he is not even done!
Nick Angel: He is FAR from done. Based on his behavior that was only the beginning! Jamie O’Hara uses the ropes as a crutch to yank himself up! He goes to build some momentum….AND THEN HE RUNS DOWN THE APRON, DIVING OFF OF IT AND TWISTING IN MID-AIR FOR A MOONSAULT ON LARS! Jamie showing off as he stands up and stretches his arms out, basking in the reaction! Jamie’s moment is interrupted as he sees Lars at his ankles! Grounded and all, Lars is still trying to fight with him! Lars hopes to run on adrenaline as he shoots up and attempts to lift him in a spinebuster BUT JAMIE FORCES HIM BACK DOWN WITH A SPIKE DDT ONTO THE FLOOR! Lars was too weak to keep control there! Jamie O’Hara then gets up, slides in and out of the ring to break the count and then gets behind Lars, placing him in a half nelson! He has Lars up, using all of his strength bad back and all….AND HE TILTS LARS UP — GLORY GLORY, THE OLYMPIC SLAM LAUNCHING LARS UP AGAINST THE STEEL RING POST! LARS’ BODY BENDS AS HE IS FOLDED UP ON THE GROUND! Jamie turns him over and slaps him around, trying to wake him up to do further damage. The referee at this point has abandoned his count, I think he knows this is about to go beyond his control.
Kawajai: Or he’s just scared of Jamie O’Hara’s reaction should he continue, the man was staring daggers at him! Jamie has never been a man to take a countout victory, especially when he has a point to prove! Like it’s been said, he told Lars on Voltage he would end him once and for all and the World Heavyweight Champion is a man of his word! He looks over at our table once again as his obsession with it flares up once again! Jamie goes back to Lars, he is grabbing two hundred seventy five pounds of dead weight, and he lays him on the table! Jamie slips off his elbow pad and begins smashing his exposed elbow into Lars’ jaw for good measure, making sure he won’t be able to respond! It seems pretty unnecessary though, Lars looks out of it!! This has gone far beyond retaining the World Heavyweight Championship and it shows as Jamie climbs onto the table as well! Jamie smiles as Lars is in worse shape than the last time they were on the table, he SPITS on Lars Grier before carrying on with his plans! Jamie pulling up the challenger looking him right in his eyes telling him he asked for this! Jamie hooks him! SINGLE UNDERHOOK BRAINBUSTER THROUGH THE TABLE!!!
Nick Angel: HOLD ON, NOT YET! LARS SOMEHOW IS FIGHTING IT! LARS GRIER IS DOING HIS BEST TO WEIGH HIMSELF DOWN, DOING HIS BEST TO NOT BUDGE FROM HIS SPOT! JAMIE IS HELLBENT ON PUTTING LARS THROUGH THIS TABLE, BUT LARS FIGHTS OUT OF THE CHAMPION’S GRASP! He boxes the ears of the Champion and looks to get some distance – BUT JAMIE PULLS HIM BACK IN! LARS AGAIN STRUGGLES TO ESCAPE HIS CLUTCHES — AND HE GETS THE SEPARATION HE WANTED AS HE BACK BODY DROPS THE CHAMPION ONTO THE DYNASTY TABLE!! JAMIE O’HARA HITS THE TABLE HARD AS IT WASN’T ENOUGH TO BREAK, THE FACT THAT IT DID NOT GIVE IS WORSE THAN IF IT JUST BROKE DOWN!!
Kawajai: I have to agree based on first hand experience, I do not envy Jamie O’Hara right now! Lars Grier is catching a breather as the champion is holding his lower back in pain! Lars is wobbly on his own feet but manages to stand, right behind him on the other table is Jamie is gingerly making his way to his feet. It’s a race to get to a standing position and Lars is winning! Lars turns and spots Jamie as the Champion turns. His face lights up as the gears are turning, Lars is getting himself into a certain headspace as he looks like he is about to act — LARS SUDDENLY BREAKS OUT IN A SPRINT AS HE RUNS FROM THE VOLTAGE TABLE TO THE DYNASTY TABLE CATCHING JAMIE WITH THE RAVENSBEAK!!! A RAZOR SHARP SPEAR CUTTING THROUGH THE CHAMPION AS THEY BOTH GO CRASHING THROUGH THE DYNASTY TABLE!!! BOTH MEN ARE IN A HEAP!! NOBODY IS SHOWING SIGNS OF MOVEMENT AS LARS IS JUST DRAPED ACROSS THE HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION!!!
Nick Angel: I AM FLOORED. THE ANNOUNCE TABLE IMPLODED AS THERE IS A MESS AROUND RINGSIDE! LARS GRIER HAD A BURST OF ENERGY THAT HE HAD TO CAPITALIZE ON BUT NOW HE MAY HAVE TAKEN HIMSELF OUT ALONG WITH JAMIE! This match is at a stand still as there is barely any movement from both guys! Hang on Lars is starting to move! He’s pushing himself up off of Jamie O’Hara! Lars Grier’s is definitely hurting, he can barely keep his head up to look around! He falls back over but then pushes himself up again! Lars Grier falls to the side, landing up against one of the announcers chairs which was the only thing keeping him upright — the chair starts to roll away as Lars falls over on his own! A good portion of the crowd is starting to get behind him, egging him on! He has to take advantage of this, he can’t waste time: Lars Grier is wide awake and Jamie O’Hara is still down! THIS COULD BE THE OPPORTUNITY HE NEEDED BUT HE HAS TO GET JAMIE IN THE RING, THE CHAMPION HASN’T MOVED AT ALL!! LARS IS PULLING HIMSELF UP WITH HELP FROM THE BARRICADE AS HE SEES THIS IS HIS MOMENT, HE GRABS THE CHAMPION WHO IS DEAD ON HIS FEET, AND HE SENDS HIM INSIDE THE RING! LARS SLIDES IN RIGHT BEHIND HIM!!
Kawajai: JAMIE O’HARA MIGHT BE AWAKE! HE TRIES TO ROLL AROUND, HOPING TO EXIT OUT OF THE RING FROM THE OPPOSITE SIDE! HE ALMOST MAKES IT, BUT AS HE TURNS ONTO HIS BACK HE MOMENTARILY PASSES OUT, HIS EYES GLAZED OVER! SO CLOSE BUT HE’S TOO EXHAUSTED! LARS CHASES AFTER HIM, CRAWLING ON HIS FOURS! HE REACHES OUT….. AND HE COVERS!! THE ARM IS OVER JAMIE’S CHEST AS THE REFEREE DROPS DOWN TO COUNT THE PIN! NEW CHAMPION!!!
Nick Angel: LARS HAS DONE IT — HUH!?
Kawajai: LARS THINKS HE’S WON BUT THE REFEREE IS POINTING AT JAMIE’S FOOT BEING ON THE ROPE! JAMIE’S ATTEMPTED LEAVE PUT HIM CLOSE ENOUGH TO THE ROPES TO SAVE HIMSELF! THE REFEREE GOING TO LARS AND LETTING HIM KNOW JAMIE’S FOOT WAS ON THE ROPES AND LARS CAN’T BELIEVE IT! LARS PUSHES THE REFEREE AND IS SHOUTING AT HIM! There’s no use though, he knows he’s going to have to deal with this head on! Lars eyes the wounded champion in a blind rage, grabbing him from behind; BAD OMENS! THE PUMPHANDLE NECKBREAKER HIT WITH PERFECTION BY LARS! Lars slithers away from Jamie’s body after that, we all know what that moves serves as a prelude to! He makes his way to the corner opposite of him, he’s going to go for the Ravensbeak again! Lars is looking like an animal waiting to be let out of his cage, he is going to rip Jamie in half with that Ravensbeak! The champion is desperately trying to get up, using the ropes to get up to his feet as he just turns and LARS RUNS!!! RAVENSBEAK!!!!
Nick Angel: NOBODY IS HOME! JAMIE LEAPFROGS OVER HIM AS LARS STOPS HIMSELF BEFORE HE COLLIDES WITH THE CORNER!! AND HE TURNS RIGHT INTO A SLING BLADE!!! Lars got dropped but he’s like a machine as he is already stirring! Lars tries to make his way up to a knee- IN EXCELSIS!!!! RUNNING BICYCLE KNEE TO LARS!! JAMIE SCRAMBLED TO HIS FEET AND HIT THE ROPES, COMING AT LARS WITH EVERYTHING HE HAD! THAT KNEE CONNECTING OUT OF NOWHERE, WHIPPING LARS HEAD BACK AND KNOCKING HIM OUT AS JAMIE COVERS!!!
Nick Angel: NO WAY! LARS IS ABLE TO GET HIS SHOULDER UP!! JAMIE CAN’T BELIEVE IT!! AND NEITHER CAN THIS CROWD!! AND CHRIS ELITE IS SHOCKED HIMSELF AS HE THOUGHT THAT WAS IT LIKE THE REST OF US!! Jamie looks down at Lars as he gets himself up to his feet, Lars is stirring and wants to make it up to his feet but the punishment he has taken is makin it all the more difficult, Lars gets up to his feet AND HE SWINGS WILDLY AT THE CHAMPION!!! Jamie O’Hara ducks it – BUT IS ALMOST KNOCKED OFF OF HIS FEET WITH A EUROPEAN UPPERCUT! Jamie falls back and rebounds off of the ropes — GETTING POPPED UP IN THE AIR! THE STARFALL POWERBOMB BY LARS GRIER!
Kawajai: NOT SO FAST! JAMIE O’HARA COUNTERS WITH A FRANKENSTEINER! Lars Grier rolls through after that and rises with Jamie! The two rush each other at the same time trying to meet in the middle! They advance to each other and Jamie is the quicker one of the draw with a thumb to the eye! Lars has been blinded! Punch to the stomach! Jamie looks to go for Death, Decay and Windy Days; BUT LARS GRIER GETS OUT OF IT! HE LANDS BEHIND HIM JAMIE AND TURNS HIM AROUND! HE LIFTS JAMIE UP HOPING TO HIT HIM WITH THE GO TO SLEEP, THE NEVERMOOOOREEEE — WOAH! JAMIE LANDS ON HIS FEET AND CATCHES THE LEG BEFORE LARS CAN HIT HIS JAW! LARS IS HOPPING AROUND ON ONE LEG UNSURE OF WHAT JAMIE MIGHT DO! LARS IS AT JAMIE’S MERCY!
Nick Angel: HE DROPS LARS’ LEG DOWN…AND A SUPERKICK TO THE PREVIOUSLY TARGETED SHOULDER OF LARS!!! LARS GRIER HOLDS THAT SHOULDER AND WALKS AROUND AS HE LETS OUT A HOWL OF PAIN, TAKING A WALK – AND TURNING RIGHT INTO A BASEMENT DROPKICK! LARS GRIER IS ON HIS KNEES AS JAMIE KIPS UP AND FOLLOWS THE MOVE UP WITH AN IN EXCELSSSSSIIIISSS!!!! HE CONNECTS WITH THE RUNNING BICYCLE KNEE ONCE AGAIN!!!! BUT HE DOESN’T ELECT TO GO FOR THE COVER?!!?
Kawajai: Jamie dragging the dead weight of Lars up to his feet, this is personal, he goes behind! WRIST LOCK, TRANSITIONED INTO A BICYCLE KNEE!! KINNGGGGGSLLLAYERRRRRRRRRRR!!!! JAMIE WITH THE GREATEST MOVE IN HIS ARSENAL, LEAPING UP IN THE AIR TO CATCH LARS IN THE FACE AS HE DROPS TO THE CANVAS LIKE A TON OF BRICKS! JAMIE LAYS THE CHALLENGER OUT AND HE FALLS TO THE COVER OVER LARS!!
Ref: ONNNEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! THRRREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“Kashmir” By Led Zeppelin hits as both men lay winded on the canvas as the referee gets the World Championship laying it next to Jamie as he grabs it before being helped up to his feet by the official and having his hand raised along with the championship)
Rebecca Sawyer: The winner of this match….AANNNDDDD STTTILLLL EAW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION….JAAAAAAAMMMIIIEEEE O’HARRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!
Nick Angel: Jamie O’Hara pulls it off once again in what might be his closest affair yet! Lars Grier dominated for damn near half of the match, stopping him at every turn, throwing him around and dropping him on his head! Jamie O’Hara’s reign was damn near over after that Ravensbeak spear through the table but that ring placement saved him there! Put him a few inches further from the ring ropes and this might be a whole different story but Jamie’s veteran instincts meant all of the difference in the world!
Kawajai: You got that right! Out of everything that happened in this match, Jamie going after Lars Grier’s shoulder injury played the biggest factor in this match, without him preying on that who knows if Lars Grier may have been stopped! Lars Grier came in hot for his first one on one World Championship match but in the end Jamie O’Hara’s experienced kept the title around his waist. Lars Grier can take this in stride though, this was an incredible performance and his main event run is far from over.
Nick Angel: If Lars can learn from this and come back stronger he might just be the one to do it, right now who else can stop Jamie?
Kawajai: Well there’s a certain someone in the audience who promised he’d have next as far as whoever faces the World Champion. Chris Elite was watching this match from start to finish in the first row because he wanted to know who’d be Champion after tonight so he could set his sights on them. After an hellacious match, he now has his answer as he and Jamie lock eyes while Jamie heads up the ramp.
(Lars Grier is left in the ring by himself, getting to his feet to an ovation from the audience who loved his performance. The referee checks if he’s alright and needs help with his shoulder but Lars brushes past him and heads out of the ring with his head down. Chris offers some words of encouragement but Lars turns to him and pushes him in frustration. Chris is taken aback and looks to jump the barricade but security comes by and keeps Elite at bay to avoid an altercation.)
Nick Angel: Come on! Lars Grier is lashing out as he does not want to let this go; he does not want to lose his place in line for the World title! Chris Elite wasn’t even looking for trouble but he’s ready to swing on Lars if he could get a clear shot! The security is trying to calm the situation down but tensions are high right now and I can’t blame them, wanting that world title is driving these guys crazy, all but Jamie who gets to watch this from up at the ramp! If there was one way to describe the world title scene as we figure out what happens next it would be chaos!
(Security keeps the two at a distance as we switch cameras to show that while this is going on on Jamie O’Hara is on the ramp, raising his World Heavyweight Championship up high and watching with glee. He lets out a laugh we fade away from the scene.)

( Camera cuts back to the Stade Velodrome, who wait in anticipation. )
(“Unfazed” by Lil Uzi Vert feat. The Weeknd plays as Astraea walks out onto the stage, twirling her braid and wearing the Empress of Elite Crown. She takes a look at the crowd before raising both fingers in the air as the following phrase appears on the Tron-)
Crowd: ASTRAEA BETTER!
SG1: It’s been an eventful night for Empire tonight already as we’ve seen one title change take place, ending what’s been a fabulous reign for Consuela Rose Ava. Empire’s second match for the event here in the Stade Velodrome is son to be underway! Very few women in our business can say they got a world title shot within their first year with a promotion, especially here in EAW!
Gia Cervantes: This young lady has been on a tear since joining Empire in the late summer. Her rise has been like a rocket ship, taking off and never stopping. She has the support of “Mr. DEDEDE” Ryan Adams himself and the rest of the Gawd Complex group that he’s forming.
SG1: She earned this shot and the crown by impressing the chairman with what she calls “Chiraq Savagery”. Will it pay off tonight and earn her the most prestigious title in women’s wrestling? We’ll see.
(Astraea climbs into the ring and strolls over to her corner after doing her signature spin. She takes off her crown and jacket to hand to off an official)
(The arena goes black again for several moments. A single spotlight shines on a previously dark part of the stage which has the EAW Women’s Championship atop a pedestal, resting on a velvet pillow. “Formation” by Beyonce plays as Aria Jaxon walks out wearing white and gold attire – matching the women’s title itself)
Gia: It’s like she’s one with the title…
(As the near 70,000 in attendance are cheering her, Aria walks over to the Women’s Championship and places it over her right shoulder – shades of the second King of Elite 2018 poster. She slowly walks down the ramp, smiling at her adoring fans)
SG1: I can barely hear myself think as the Stade Velodrome has turned into the world’s largest nightclub! All of France is welcoming The Queen with open arms as their singing and dancing to her theme!
Gia: For six months Aria Jaxon has beaten nearly anyone there is to beat on the Empire roster. Astraea Jordan may become one of many who ends up on the receiving end of a Blueprint –
SG1: Or Aria will learn what it means to Free Smoke.
Gia: It’s weird how there are so many parallels to both performers – they’re both young, aspiring women of color in this business. Their initials are both AJ, take no mess from anyone, and herald by Ryan Adams himself.
SG1: They also have backstabber-style signature moves and finishers.
Gia: It’s as if Astraea is Mr. Adams’ backup
SG1: If the ‘Aria Project’ doesn’t work out? Hmm, interesting.
(Aria slowly makes her way into the ring and raises the title into the air. She gives it to the ref and takes off her white and gold jacket. She stands in her corner as Jasmine Peyton is seen standing next to Jesse Carlton, EAW’s first female referee. A full view of the ring area is shown as the “EAW WOMEN’S CHAMPIONSHIP” graphic is shown on the screen before going back to Jasmine)
Jasmine Peyton: The following match is scheduled for –
Crowd: UNE CHUTE!
Jasmine: (smiles) and it is for the EAW WOMEN’S CHAMPIONSHIP! First, from CHIRAQ, USA! She weighs in at 155lbs of pure muscle! She is “The Goddess of Justice!” ASTRAEA! JOOOOORDAN!
(Astraea raises a fist in the air, glaring at Aria. She gets a collection of cheers and boos)
Jasmine: Her opponent! From ‘The City of Angels!’ Weighing in at 110-
(Jasmine goes quiet as the roar of the crowd drowns her out)
Jasmine: She is the EAW WOMEN’S CHAMPION! “The Face of Empire” ARRRRRRRIA JAXOOOOOOOOON!
(Aria smiles at the fans as she waves. She turns her attention to Astraea with a confident grin)
Gia: Aria Jaxon vs Astraea Jordan. Here we go.
(DING! DING! DING!)
SG1: Challenger and Champion come out of their respective corners as this match is underway! Aria and Astraea weren’t shy about sharing their feelings about each other this week and it shows their glares! Jordan is strangely calm, a total opposite of how she was last week! Aria’s focused, treating her opponent like she’s a threat to be assessed! The French portion of the EAW Universe is on their feet. Chanting back and forth!
Crowd: LET’S GO A-RIA!
Gia: Aria gets in a catch position, circling Astraea, who looks unbothered as she gets into a stance of her own. People speak about Aria’s speed and agility, but there is a strong foundation of technical prowess built underneath her.
SG1: Both women get into a collar-and-elbow tie-up! Aria’s straining, trying to push against Astraea, who SHOVES the champion! Aria goes flying back! What strength from Astraea Jordan! Aria’s surprised by what just happened! The challenger is standing tall while the champion has been knocked on her rear!
Gia: Aria has to avoid getting to a test of strength with Astraea, who is known for her physical prowess! She broke most of the NEO Combine records! Ms. Jordan is a physical specimen who’s not shy about displaying her athletic feats!
SG1: Astraea’s allowing Aria to backup interrupted! The champ dusts herself off and gets back in her signature fighting stance! Astraea initiates the grapple! Aria ducks under and gets behind with a waist lock! The Goddess of Justice reverses with a standing switch! She has Aria’s leg! She’s attempting an ankle lock, but the Jaxon scrambles away to the corner just in time! FREE SMOKE – ARIA SLIDES OUT OF RING IN TIME TO AVOID THE RUNNING KNEE!
Gia: ‘Ria’s taking a break ringside, realizing that Astraea is a lot more prepared for this than she thought! Jordan is calling out for her to come back in! The young upstart takes a few steps back and bows as Aria slowly climbs back into the ring.
SG1: Astraea is playing this smart. I’m not surprised with her being an understudy of DEDEDE and a bonafide member of the Gawd Complex. She’s being taught how to play the game – to get into your opponent’s head and to successfully take advantage of a situation! Aria hits ropes! Astraea chases after her! The champ falls to the mat! Astraea jumps over her! Jaxon leapfrogs over Jordan! She turns around and hits the sling blade – JORDAN CATCHES THE CHAMP AND TOSSES HER WITH A FALLAWAY SLAM!! Aria flies across the ring like a ragdoll! The sheer power of Astraea is unbelievable!
Gia: It looks like she did her research, SG! The sling blade is an Aria Jaxon staple! Jaxon needs to develop a new strategy to get over in this match! Maybe she thought this was going to be easier than expected!
SG1: Well the champ is rolling out to the apron. Astraea charges – Aria pulls down the ropes! Astraea falls over and lands on her feet! The Chiraq Savage pulls Jaxon from the apron and catches her in the air! POP-UP SPINEBUSTER ONTO THE UNFORGIVING FLOOR! The padding can only do so much!
Gia: ‘Ria looks like someone just swung a hammer at her back! She’s crying out in pain, her wincing expression etched into the minds of those who are witnessing her domination before their very eyes!
(A replay shows Astraea driving Aria’s back into the ground ringside with a spinebuster)
Astraea: (off mic) What the matter!? I thought you wanted to pop awf!
SG1: The champ is picked up by her blue hair – a tribute to the Iconic Sparks – and is tossed into the nearest barricade! I doubt Aria’s back can hold out that much longer!
(Astraea walks over to Aria in total confidence. A nearby fan is holding up a sign that says ‘WHERE’S THE ASTRAEA MERCH!?’ Astraea gives him a fist bump and uses the same hand to clock Aria across the face!)
Gia: Astraea is in total control of this match. She’s having her way with Ms. Jaxon and is enjoying every moment of it! She’s lifting Jaxon by her head and is yelling at her, daring the champ to fight back! She attempts to slam Aria’s head against barricade but the champ puts up a leg! Elbow to the face of Astraea! Now it’s her turn to throw Jordan against the barricade, HEAD FIRST!
SG1: Aria staggers away while holding her back! This is not the situation she wants to be caught in. While she retains the belt in a countout, Jaxon is a fighting champ. She rolls back into the ring and leans against the rope to recover as Astraea gets up!
SG1: Astraea climbs back into the ring as Aria gives her the same courtesy! It’s Astrea’s turn to run the ropes! Aria follows suit! Leapfrog over Jordan! She collides with a stone cold shoulder block! Jaxon kip-ups, showing the challenger that the champ is here to stay! She presses her forehead against Astraea’s, glaring daggers at her opponent’s eyes! Astraea shoves Aria who slides along the mat and regains her footing! JAXON MATRIX EVADES THE SUMMER SHUDDER! The reverse roundhouse attempt came out of nowhere! Aria counters with a hammerlock, slowing things down!
Gia: We talked about Aria’s technical prowess earlier and here it is once again! Astraea is forced to sit down and transitions into a keylock! Astraea’s trying to fight out of this submission hold! Jaxon is not letting up! Astraea turns over and reverses it! She’s on her back as she has Aria locked in an elevated surfboard stretch! Aria pushes up her legs, trying to escape, but Astraea’s grip is too tight!
SG1: Jordan is outdoing Jaxon is every category so far! Maybe she hasn’t fully recovered from that epic match from Bloodletter, maybe it’s from the wear and tear of having to defend a major title for nearly six months straight! But whatever it is, this is not the same Aria Jaxon who beat Cameron Ella Ava and Cailin Dillon! This is not the same young upstart who beat HBG and Eris LeCava in the same night! This is a tired queen, fighting to stake her claim!
Gia: I wouldn’t count Aria out yet as she’s doing everything physically to change her situation! While in pain she’s still fighting to stand – WHOA THE CHAMP LEAPS AND FLIPS OVER JORDAN, FORCING HER TO LET GOT! BASEMENT DROPKICK TO THE BACK OF ASTRAEA! Aria’s down, as it took a lot for her to get out of that predicament!
SG1: Ever since she introduced the California Crush, Aria’s been including high flying maneuvers to her repertoire. She traveled with experienced flyers like Stephanie Matsuda and Tarah Nova! She knows what it takes to utilize her agility to maximum effectiveness!
Gia: Aria hits the ropes as Astraea gets on her knees – HURRICANRANA DRIVER! Jaxon’s legs drove Jordan’s head into the canvas! It looks like she’s doing a hit and run strategy to catch the opponent off guard! Aria runs to the ropes and climbs to the top! She’s waiting for Astraea to get back on her feet! I don’t know why she would want to take such a huge risk! ARIA DIVES OVER ASTRAEA AND LANDS WITH A TUMBLE! Astraea turns around – SCORPION KICK TO THE CHIN! Jordan stumbles as Jaxon goes for the Contract Killer – SPEAR! SPEAR! Those solid shoulders of Jordan made contact with Aria’s midsection! Jordan makes a cover!
SG1: Aria lifts the shoulder! Astraea tried to get the surprise pinfall, but Aria’s awareness shook her back to reality just in time!
Gia: That spear is not one of Astraea’s signatures, but it sure as hell looks like one! Aria’s crawling along the floor as Astraea stalks her, twirling her braid! I don’t like where this is going!
Astraea: (off mic) You think you’re Kunta Kinte, huh?
SG1: LISTEN TO THAT SICKENING SOUND AS ASTRAEA WHIPS ARIA ACROSS HER BACK! The ref doesn’t even know what to do!
Astraea: TAKE (whip) YOUR (whip) TOBY (whip) ASS (whip) BACK (whip) TO (whip) L.A.!! (whip)
Gia: Astraea just went all Django on Aria with the braid-whip! According to the rules of wrestling, using one’s own hair isn’t illegal! It’s like using a body part! Astraea is now wrapping her braid around the throat of the champion and begins strangling her! Aria’s kicking about, trying to break free! The ref is giving Ms. Jordan a warning! Astraea lets go, but the damage has been done! I don’t know how much damage to the back she can take!
SG1: Astraea’s twirling that braid again! The ref is issuing another warning, but she’s being ignored! Aria’s holding her lower back, trying to stand! There’s something in her eye; her hair’s covering her face I can barely tell…
SG1: Astraea swing the braid – Aria catches it! Astraea’s panicking as Aria slowly gets back on her face red with anger! She pulls Jordan in using the braid – YAKUZA KICK! Astraea’s down, but Aria’s still hanging on! Shoot kick in the thigh! Spin kick to the midsection! Front kick in the face! Each time Astraea falls, Aria pulls her back, using her braid!
Gia: CONTRACT KILLER! Aria pulls Astraea in just as she delivered that hellacious superkick! The champ is in a real salty mood right now because she’s not finished with the challenger! She’s wrapping Astraea’s own braid around her neck – RAGS! TO! RICHES! Astraea lands squarely on her head from that snap brainbuster! Aria covers!
SG1: Astraea gets the shoulder up! Somehow she withstood one of the deadliest moves in Aria’s arsenal! Aria’s LIVID! The champ is on top, smacking her across the face! The ref is trying to stop Aria, but she’s delivering hand after hand across the face! OUCH! Astraea clocks Aria under the chin with a surprise forearm, and she’s rolling off! Jordan climbs on Aria – who’s lying on her stomach – and starts slamming her head into the canvas! This title match has now become a fight on Worldstar!
Gia: Aria elbows Astraea off her! She grabs at Astraea’s leg and drags her to the middle of the ring! She locks in the kneeling figure-four and wastes no time striking those elbows to the side of Astraea’s face! One! Two! Three! Four! Astraea’s holding her face, trying to roll away! Aria pulls her by the braid into a face lock! She’s digging in with those grounded knee strikes to the side of Astraea Jordan! I never saw the champ this bloodthirsty and intense! Not even with Cloud! Aria pulls up Jordan by the braid – Astraea ducks! LIFE AFTER DEATH! She quickly pulls off the cobra clutch backstabber! Wait! Oh no! Astraea still has the clutch intact as she flips over a ground Aria, pulling the champ’s own arm across her face! BLEED BLACK! BLEED BLACK! ASTRAEA’S DIVING HER KNEES TO THE SIDE OF ARIA’S HEAD WHILE PULLING BACK THE RIPCORD CROSSFACE SUBMISSION!! SHE’S TRYING TO MAKE THE CHAMP TAP! OH MY GOD IF SHE MAKES ARIA JAXON TAP!
SG1: Aria has nowhere to go! She’s on an island of pain all by herself! She needs to think of something quickly before she taps or passes out from the pain! Astraea’s firing off the knees once again! ARIA SLIPS FREE! The champ is hurt but is digging deep to get to her feet! JAXON DUCKS THE ROUNDHOUSE! SHE TOSSES ASTRAEA OUT OF THE RING! Aria falls on her back, exhausted!
Gia: That submission finisher as drained most of her life force! She’s beginning to realize this is a different kind of fight than the one she had at Bloodletter! That was about to see who was the best! But here in this match, in her opponent’s mind: Astraea better.
SG1: Speaking of the challenger, she took a rough fall just a moment ago! She’s still struggling to stand up!
SG1: If She can keep it together, she could find a way to end this match! She’s fighting against an opponent she was built to defeat! Mr. DEDEDE, Chairman Ryan Adams is one of the greatest ring tacticians of his generation! I don’t doubt for one second that they went over hours upon hours of match footage to see what they’re up against!
Gia: It’s kind of interesting when you think about it. Both title challengers for Empire’s matches are backed by the chairman himself. Coincidence? I think – SUICIDE TORNADO DDT FROM ARIA JAXON! While Astraea was gathering her bearings, Jaxon rolled the dice and used what she had left to take out her opponent!
SG1: Both champion and challenger are barely conscious ringside. I wouldn’t be surprised if Aria did this to get a countout draw!
Gia: I doubt Aria would even entertain the thought. She’s laying all out on the line like she always does!
SG1: I’ve seen purer hearts do worse things, Gia. Astraea is the first to stir, trying to crawl her way back into the ring! Aria’s grabbing onto her attire, but is knocked down! Astraea is about to slide into the ring, but it looks like she remembers that titles only changes hand through a pin or submission! She rolls Aria back into the ring and takes her time crawling in – ARIA WITH THE ROLL-UP!
Gia: Astraea kicks out! Both women are taking their time getting to their feet! Elbow to the face by Astraea! Forearm smash by Aria! Astraea toss Aria out to the apron! Aria keeps her footing! Rope-assisted kick and Astraea stumbles back! Aria jumps off the ropes! SPARKS FLY! SPRINGBOARD SOMERSAULT NECKBREAKER! Astraea’s down as Aria goes for another cover!
SG1/Gia: SO CLOSE!
(The ref turns to Aria and points to Astraea’s foot on the rope)
SG1: Aria doesn’t know what to do with herself right now! She’s burning the candle at both ends! Aria picks up Astraea – THE CHALLENGER HOISTS ARIA ONTO HER SHOULDERS! ARIA SLIPS DOWN! ASTRAEA GRABS HER! HIP TOSS BACKBREAKER! Jordan is holding Aria’s back over her knee! She hits several nasty elbows to the chest! ARIA PULLS BACK HER LEGS AROUND WRAP THEM AROUND ASTRAEA’S NECK! TILT-A-WHIRL HEADSCISSORS TAKEDOWN! WAIT! ASTRAEA LANDED ON HER HANDS! HANDSTAND HEADSCISSORS TAKEDOWN! WHAT SURPRISING! AGILITY! ARIA CARTWHEELS! FRONT DROPKICK! ASTRAEA BLOCKS! Aria grabs her from behind with a waistlock! CHICAGO WIND! ASTRAEA LIFTED ARIA BY THE AIR AND FLIPPED HER OVER!
Gia: ARIA LANDS ON HER FEET! ELBOW TO THE FACE OF ASTRAEA, WHO’S STILL HANGING ON! BLUEPRINT!!! BLUEPRINT!!! ARIA HAS HIT HER FINISHER! ASTRAEA IS DOWN FROM SHIRANUI DOUBLE KNEE BACKBREAKER! ARIA GOES FOR THE PIN!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“Formation” by Beyonce plays as Aria rolls off Astraea. The ref picks her up and raises her hand)
Jasmine: Your winner and STILL your EAW WOMEN’S CHAMPION! ARIA! JAXOOON!
SG1: What a match! Aria comes out on top again!
Gia: For a second I thought Astraea was walking away with the title!
SG1: Astraea brought the fire, but Aria’s experience paid off in the end!
Gia: Something tells me that we won’t see the last of Ms. Jordan in the main event scene though.
(The camera focuses on Aria celebrating with the title as the scene fades to black)

( https://i.imgur.com/1cYocHC.png )
Rebecca Sawyer: The following contest is scheduled for one fall and is for the EAW INTERWIRE CHAMPIONSHIP!!!
(“You Will Know Our Name” by ACE+ hits the speakers as Moongoose McQueen makes his entrance wearing a sequined catsuit and cape. He is followed down the ramp by two shirtless men in venetian masks, one of whom drops to his hands and knees to allow Moongoose to step up on him as he enters the ring. Gripping either side of his cape, he raises his arms pulling it into a pair of resplendent wings.)
Sawyer: Introducing first and accompanied by “The Boys”, he is from Austin, Texas and weighs in at 236 pounds…The Challenger… MOONGOOSE MCQUEEN!!!
Kawajai: What in the world?
Nick Angel: It is a new year and evidently a new Moongoose McQueen looking to kick 2018 off the right way as he comes out here ready and poised to become Voltage’s new Interwire Champion. Can he do it? Well it is too close to call but having seen the Rockstar like swagger with which he has come down to the ring tonight, I wouldn’t at all be surprised.
Kawajai: Ok but why… Why are they undressing him. This is weird, Nick. This is making me uncomfortable.
Angel: It’s all mind games, Kawa. If he is already in your head, then just think how Carlos must be feeling. This is genius.
(“Already Home” by Kid Cudi and Jay Z begins to fill the Stade Velodrome as Carlos Rosso enters the stage in all red attire. Mao Ichimichi follows alongside him holding up the EAW Interwire Championship for the crowd to see. Back in the ring, Moongoose takes a seat on “The Boys” and issues his come hither look.)
Sawyer: And introducing his opponent, accompanied to the ring by Mao Ichimichi. He is from Baton Rouge, Louisiana and weighs in at 225 pounds…He is THE EAW INTERWIRE CHAMPION… CARLOS ROSSO!!!
Kawajai: I don’t know what you are talking about, Nick. Carlos isn’t fussed. He comes out proudly as champion but look at the difference. No bells and whistles. No creepy rent boys. It is just another day at the office. Another meagre stop on the Champion of Life’s hype tour before the inevitable “Megafight” between him and Jamie O’Hara.
Angel: I won’t lie. Carlos is looking all business here tonight. He is more than worthy of holding that championship but I won’t neglect McQueen. He’s been wanting to get his hands on Carlos for just about forever and while i don’t doubt that Rosso has brought his A-game, you can bet that McQueen will be pulling out all the stops… Even, it appears, a few gold leafs out of his brother’s book.
(DING! DING! DING!)
Angel: Both competitor’s respective entourages have been ushered out to ringside and we are finally ready to go – FLYING KNEE! ROSSO SNIPES STRAIGHT FOR THE HEAD BUT MCQUEEN IS ABLE TO SIDESTEP IT AND PULL HIM INTO THE CLINCH. Both men are dragging each other around as the ring as they frantically contest to get the better of this collar and elbow tie. UPPERCUT THROUGH THE GUARD BY MOONGOOSE! AND THE SECOND CONNECTS LOUDLY! McQueen gets the better of this skirmish and continues to lay into the Champion, forcing him to pedal back into the ropes. KNIFE EDGED CHOP!
Kawajai: WOOO!!! McQueen lights up the Red Storm’s chest in an apt shade of scarlet. Rosso winces as McQueen presses against him. Irish whip. But Rosso whips him back – NO! ROSSO REELS HIM BACK INTO A SOUTHERN LARIAT!!!
Angel: It is a DANGEROUSLY close shave but Moongoose manages to duck the strongest arm in EAW, hooking it in the half nelson as he goes. EL THOR! THERE’S THE BRIDGING OLYMPIC SLAM AND WHAT A COUNTER THAT WAS FROM MOONGOOSE MCQUEEN!
Kawajai: The Interwire Champion takes the brunt a heavy impact, but he isn’t staying down. He quickly rolls to the ropes to right himself. Meanwhile, in the centre of the ring, McQueen strikes what appears to be his best Sailor Moon pose.
McQueen *Off Mic*: IN THE NAME OF THE MOON, I’LL PUNISH YOOUUUUUU!!!
Angel: McQueen rushes in for a RUNNING FOREARM! BUT CARLOS GETS UNDERNEATH HIM. BACK BODY DROP SENDS MOONGOOSE OVER THE ROPES. He lands, catlike, on the apron and quickly recovers. ROSSO REVOLVER! MOONGOOSE WASN’T QUICK ENOUGH AS HE CATCHES THE SPINNING BACK ELBOW FLUSH ACROSS THE JAW!
Kawajai: Mcqueen takes a tumble, bouncing off the apron as he falls hard to ringside. His…”Boys” rush to check on him but everyone’s eyes should be on Carlos in the ring. HE’S FIRED UP. One peer at the scene down at ringside and Carlos tilts his head towards the ropes behind. ROSSO RACES OFF AND HITS THE BACK ROPES! HE REBOUNDS BACK WITH A FULL HEAD OF STEAM…
Angel: BUT THE BOYS! The Boys see it coming and quickly whisk their beloved Moongoose McQueen away from the danger zone. Carlos stops himself at the ropes, slapping his thigh in frustration as the challenger is pulled to safety. AND HE IS INCENSED. ROSSO IS SEEING RED AS HE SLIDES TO THE OUTSIDE. The Boys bravely try to stand their ground between him and McQueen.
Referee: ONE!… TWO!…
Kawajai: Big mistake… ONE HIT KILL! ROSSO DROPS ONE WITH A SINGLE OVERHAND RIGHT AND THE SECOND IS OUT OF THERE. He is trying to flee with the still groggy McQueen BUT CARLOS ROSSO CATCHES THE WRIST! SOUTHERN LARIAT!!! CARLOS JUST TRAMPLED THROUGH THE BOYS IN A MATTER OF SECONDS LIKE A RAGING BULL! MCQUEEN IS SAT AGAINST THE BARRICADE LOOKING ON IN SHEER TERROR! He quickly retreats into the relative safety of the ring but Rosso is hot on his tail.
Angel: Rosso slides into the ring but there is McQueen to ambush him with a double axe handle. He continues to pound away with heavy clubbing blows to spine of Carlos. But he cannot keep him down. The riled Carlos Rosso forces his way to his feet. AND THERE IS THE DOUBLE LEG TAKEDOWN! Rosso drives through McQueen, lifting him slightly before bringing him all the way down to the canvas. McQueen is in trouble. USA ELBOWS!!!
Kawajai: It doesn’t look pretty. And Carlos making it look easy here but let me tell you that these are some of the most brutal and cruelly calculated strikes that you are ever likely to see in an EAW ring. McQueen is trying desperately to cover up and protect himself but it is all in vain. Each strike is crushing through the guard and NAILING McQueen’s skull into the canvas. He’s helpless. He’s… BAH GAWD! HE’S BUSTED OPEN! CRIMSON SEEPS FROM MCQUEEN’S SKULL AS ROSSO SATES HIS BLOODLUST!
Angel: THIS IS OBSCENE! Carlos finally lets off with the onslaught. He wipes the fresh blood from his elbow and smears it over his all over his own face. HE’S LOST IT! ROSSO LOOKS CRAZED AS HE CONTINUES TO LOOK DOWN ON MCQUEEN WITH A COMBINATION OF DISGUST AND WICKED INTENTIONS! Carlos rolls him over and brings McQueen back up a vertical base in the straightjacket… LUNGBLOWER BY ROSSO! AND HE KEEPS THE HOLD LOCKED, HE TRANSITIONS… ROSSO RECLINER! ROSSO RECLINER!!! HE HAS THE TRADEMARK STRAIGHT JACKET CAMEL CLUTCH LOCKED IN TIGHT, RIGHT AFTER A VICIOUS BACKSTABBER!
Kawajai: NOW MOONGOOSE GETS TO PLAY HUMAN FURNITURE JUST LIKE HIS BOYS! ROSSO SITS IN DEEP. HE LOADS MORE AND MORE PRESSURE ONTO MCQUEEN’S SPINE AS HE RECLINES! Meanwhile, McQueen has nowhere to go. Carlos has him right in the centre of the ring, no arms to even help drag himself to the ropes. Hell, I don’t even think he can tap in this position. I don’t think McQueen has any option but to verbally submit or be SNAPPED RIGHT IN HALF and become paraplegic for the rest of his miserable life. THIS IS HOW IT ENDS…
Angel: WAIT! MCQUEEN!!!
Angel: HE’S STIRRING! I DON’T HAVE A CLUE HOW AFTER ALL THE PUNISHMENT HE HAS JUST TAKEN BUT IT LOOKS AS THOUGH HE IS FINDING A SECOND WIND TO POWER TO HIS FEET…HE DOES IT!
Kawajai: He hasn’t turned the tables yet, however. Rosso quickly releases the straight jacket and catches McQueen with a forearm, again targeting that tormented spine of his. Rosso then exploits the following opening to find a rear waistlock. GERMAN SUPLEX!
Angel: HOLD IT! McQueen keeps his centre of gravity low to block the German, then catches the Champ with some sharp back elbows to break the hold. Moongoose lifts a boot into Carlos’ face. BLACKOUT! THE INVERTED STOMP FACEBREAKER RATTLES CARLOS AND BOTH MEN DROP FLAT ONTO THE CANVAS! WE’VE SEEN HIM PUT AWAY MEN WITH THAT MOVE IN THE PAST! MOONGOOSE ROLLS OVER TO MAKE THE COVER!
Referee: ONE!… TWO!…
Kawajai: Carlos kicks out at two. It doesn’t turn around that quickly against somebody like him.
Angel: McQueen is clearly disappointed here, though I would hazard hardly surprised. In any case, he cannot afford to wait for any more of a reprieve, he must continue to strike while the iron is hot. Moongoose gets back up for a moment and puts those feet to good use as he begins to stomp away at the exposed head and chest of Rosso. BUT CARLOS CATCHES THE BOOT! He sweeps the legs out from under McQueen, trying to find the mount once more but Moongoose manages to bolt back to a vertical base.
Kawajai: Carlos is on him, though, driving McQueen back into the corner before working the midsection with a series of shoulder tackles. ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FIVE! SIX! SEVEN! EIGHT! NINE! TEN! Moongoose almost drops to his knees after the tenth, but Carlos catches him and hooks McQueen’s arms under the ropes to steady him. Rosso backs off to the opposite corner…AND RACES BACK AT BLISTERING SPEED! RED DYNAMIC!!!
Angel: MCQUEEN DIVES OUT OF THE WAY! ROSSO JUST LEPT WITH BOTH KNEES AT THE TURNBUCKLE AND NOW HE’S CAUGHT ON IT WITH HIS LEGS THROUGH THE ROPES! He’s defenceless now as Moongoose McQueen positions up behind him… SUPERKICK! HE LANDS THE SUPERKICK TO THE BACK OF CARLOS’ SKULL AND THAT IS DANGEROUS, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN! DON’T FOR THE LOVE OF GOD TRY THIS AT HOME! Carlos Rosso is out of it. He may be concussed. Moongoose McQueen could do whatever he likes right now, this is the change he has been waiting for and it looks like he wants to savor it.
McQueen *Off Mic*: DO YOU WANT TO SEE SOMETHING COOL, LADIES AND BOYS?
Kawajai: What is he doing?
Angel: McQueen gently caresses the side of Carlos’ face before reaching under his thighs.
Kawajai: Wait, what?
Angel: He is lifting Rosso up, Kawa. With some difficulty due to the back injuries sustained earlier in this match, but he is doing it. He sits Rosso on the top turnbuckle. McQueen climbs up to join him, weaving his arms underneath those of the Interwire Champion for the full nelson. Is he… HE MUST BE! MOONGOOSE SETS UP FOR THE AVALANCHE DRAGON SUPLEX! HE IS LOOKING TO DROP CARLOS RIGHT ON HIS HEAD FROM THE HIGH RENT DISTRICT! THE BAD BLOOD BETWEEN THESE TWO, IS THIS WHAT IT HAS COME TO? THIS SEEMS LIKE IT’S ABOUT MORE THAN THE TITLE! MCQUEEN COULD BREAK HIS NECK WITH THIS NEXT MANEUVER!
Kawajai: NOT SO FAST! Carlos seems to have caught his bearings and he understands the situation he has found himself in. He is giving everything he has got to try and struggle out of this. But can he free his arms? NO! McQueen hangs on tight. This is bad… BAH GAWD! MCQUEEN DROPS BACKWARDS OFF THE TURNBUCKLE!!!
Angel: CARLOS HAS DONE IT! HE SWUNG HIS HEAD BACK INTO MOONGOOSE’S NOSE TO SEND HIM TUMBLING AND NOW IT IS ROSSO ALONE ON THE TOP TURNBUCKLE! Carlos attempts to turn and reposition himself…STEP UP ENZUIGIRI!!! MCQUEEN SPRINGS OUT OF NOWHERE TO LAND THE STRIKE WHICH SENDS ROSSO CRASHING DOWN TO RINGSIDE! AND NOW MOONGOOSE, FULL OF FIRE, MOUNTS THE TOP TURNBUCKLE FOR HIMSELF.
Mao *Off Mic*: CARLOS, GET UP! C.. C!!! GET THE FUCK OUT OF THERE YOU OLD TRAMP!!!
Carlos *Off Mic*: WHO THE FUCK ARE YOU CALLIN’ OLD!?!? I’M THE INTERCOURSE CHAMPION OF THE WORLD!!!
Kawajai: Mao is out here just screaming at Carlos to get it together, but he looks too punch drunk and delirious from that fall to understand what is going on. MCQUEEN LEAPS… FLYING CROSSBODY CONNECTS AND CARLOS ROSSO IS WIPED OUT!!! McQueen springs back up and you can pretty much see the adrenaline in his system right now. Moongoose hurriedly drags the champion up and rolls him back into the ring. AND MOONGOOSE AGAIN CLIMBS TO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE! I CAN’T BELIEVE I’M SEEING THIS BUT HE’S GOING FOR IT AND HE ISN’T WASTING ANY TIME. MOONGOOSE DIVES AGAIN FOR THE RAIGEKI!!!
Angel: CARLOS GETS THE KNEES UP!
Kawajai: AND JUST LIKE THAT, EVERYTHING CHANGES! MCQUEEN TOOK ONE RISK TOO FAR AND NOW HE IS CLUTCHING HIS RIBS IN AGONY WHILE ROSSO POUNCES TO TAKE ADVANTAGE! Carlos catches the wrist from behind… SOUTHERN LARIAT!!! THE STRONGEST ARM IN EAW HITS IT’S MARK. CARLOS IS IN ECSTASY! HE LIES PROUDLY OVER MCQUEEN AND AWAITS TO RETAIN!
Referee: ONEEEEEEE!!!!… TWWWWOOOOO!!!!… THRRREEEEEE…
Angel: MOONGOOSE GOT THE SHOULDER UP! I DON’T BELIEVE IT!
Kawajai: IT WAS SO CLOSE, SURELY NOT LESS THAN 2¾ ON THAT COUNT BUT IT’S TRUE! THE OFFICIAL SAYS THE MATCH CONTINUES! CARLOS IS FURIOUS! HE WAS SURE IT WAS OVER! NOW HE MANHANDLES MCQUEEN TO HIS FEET TO FINISH THIS FOR GOOD! Carlos again had Moongoose by the wrist… He whips him out… DISCUS ELBOW TO THE SPINE!
Angel: It looked as though he was going for another Southern Lariat to finish it there, but no. Carlos has decided that he just wants to punish Moongoose at this point. McQueen has dropped to his knees, clutching the small of his back in pain as Carlos stalks him. SHOOT KICK ACROSS THE BACK OFF MOONGOOSE MCQUEEN!!! MOONGOOSE YELPS IN PAIN BUT CARLOS DOESN’T LET UP! THERE IS ANOTHER AND ANOTHER! AND CARLOS CONTINUES TO BUILD WITH PACE AND POWER OF THESE KICKS UNTIL MCQUEEN STRAIGHT UP COLLAPSES ONTO HIS CHEST!
Rosso *Off Mic*: YOU JUST COULDN’T STAY DOWN, COULD YOU? COULDN’T JUST ACCEPT YOUR PLACE.! NOW I DON’T THINK YOU UNDERSTAND WHO YOU’VE BEEN DEALING WITH. I AM THE STRONGEST ARM IN EAW. I AM THE KING OF CHAMPIONS. I AM THE MAN DESTINED TO PUT ON THE “MEGAFIGHT” WITH JAMIE O’HARA THAT WILL MAKE VOLTAGE THE HOTTEST BRAND IN EAW FOR THE FIRST TIME IN IT’S MISERABLE EXISTENCE. AND I. AM. BETTER. THAN. YOU!!! Now before I finally put you out of your misery, I want us to do this right. I want to hear you say it. TELL ME WHO I AM!!!
McQueen *Off Mic*: You… Are… OLD!!!
Kawajai: HOLY CRAP! HE’S DONE IT NOW! CARLOS ROSSO LOOKS LIKE HE IS ABOUT TO BURST AN ARTERY AS HE PUMMELS THE LIVING DAYLIGHTS OUT OF MOONGOOSE MCQUEEN! Rosso pulls him in… AND RAISES HIM HGH ABOVE HIS HEAD IN THE CRUCIFIX!!! WE DO NOT SEE THIS ONE OFTEN! CARLOS IS LOOKING TO DESTROY MOONGOOSE ONCE AND FOR ALL WITH THE ULTIMATE MOVE IN HIS ARSENAL – THE ERASER RAIN SPECIAL! BUT MCQUEEN! MCQUEEN SLIDES FREE DOWN HIS BACK AND COUNTERS WITH A SUNSET FLIP! ROSSO’S SHOULDERS ARE DOWN!
Referee: ONEEEEEE!… TWWWWOOOO!…
Angel: Carlos kicks out after a close call BUT MCQUEEN DIVES OVER HIM FOR THE INSIDE CRADLE, HE’S PINNED AGAIN!
Referee: ONNNNEEEE!!!!… TWWWOOOO!!!!…
Kawajai: Another near fall and both men scramble back up… RED REVOLVER! MCQUEEN IS SEEING STARS FROM THAT ELBOW AND ROSSO CATCHES HIS WRIST FROM BEHIND AGAIN. THIS IS IT… HE SPINS HIM OUT FOR THE SOUTHERN LARIAT!!!
Angel: BUT MCQUEEN INTERCEPTS WITH A LEAPING KNEE THAT LANDS SQUARE ON CARLOS’ CHIN! ROSSO IS STUNNED. MCQUEEN DRAGS THE CHAMPION ALONG AS HE BOUNDS UP THE TURNBUCKLE… YATAGARASU!!! HE DRIVES THE CHAMPION INTO THE CANVAS AND HOOKS THE LEG!
Referee: ONNNNNEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!… TWWWWOOOOOO!!!!!… THRRRREEEEEEEEE!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“You Will Know Our Name” by ACE+ hits the speakers as a shaky legged Moongoose McQueen stands looking ready to faint. “The Boys” rush into the ring and allow him to sit on them as the official heads to retrieve the EAW Interwire Championship.)
Sawyer: Ladies and gentlemen, your winner AND THE NEW EAW INTERWIRE CHAMPION… MOONGOOSE MCQUEEN!!!
Kawajai: I am stunned. Carlos Rosso came out here to not just retain the title, but to dominate, send out a message and display exactly what he would bring to the table in a possible “megafight” with O’Hara. Instead, Moongoose McQueen found a way to answer back and claim the biggest victory of his entire EAW Career.
Angel: I told you, it’s a new year, a new champion, and a new Moongoose McQueen out here. Carlos put on a hell of a fight as expected, but Moongoose knew what he had to do and kept pushing right down to the wire. A thoroughly deserved victory.
(The camera opens to Tarah Nova dressed in black walking down the hallway in the Stade Velodrome while twirling her barbed wire baseball bat. As she whistles “The Cheese Stands Alone” EAW interviewer, Stan Lawson, walks up to her with a mic)
Stan: Tarah Nova! The EAW Universe is a buzz at the brutality you brought upon Sheridan Muller last night! Fans are saying this is a familiar side of you – a personality not seen since EAW’s ‘extreme’ days! Has a darker part of your persona resurfaced?
(Tarah takes a moment to chew a gum and blows a bubble. It pops several inches from Stan’s face before Tarah begins to speak)
Tarah: It was always there, pudding. I just never had a reason to unleash it…not until ‘her’.
Stan: Until Sheridan?
(Tarah pauses for a moment, twirling her bat)
Tarah: Until Stephanie Matsuda.
(gasps can be heard from the crowd)
Tarah: Yes. What did I do to Sheridan, the so-called Last Vixen? It was a declaration of war sent to the War Queen. I am the Vixen Killer and that two-faced Sky Princess, Sword of Wackatarium, or whatever she’s calling herself these days was a Vixen, just like everyone else who came before her.
Stan: And you’re the Vixen Killer.
Tarah: (grins) See Stan? You’re catching on already! Sheridan costing me my job was on me. I should have seen her bull coming. But Cloud? I trusted her. I trusted her and she attacked me and Aria – who still loves her by the way! As for me? I’m not touching that hoe with a ten-foot foot pole…
(Tarah twirls her bat and walks away, leading the camera to transition elsewhere)

(The video package starts up to where we see highlights of the dominant reign of Nico Borg and his undefeated streak since joining the Dynasty roster, the cash-in on The Pizza Boy to claim the EAW Answers World Champion, and finally the assault from The Heart Break Boy after his defense at Dynasty: Invictus! Following this, the video would show the times where HBB would be denied the opportunity to challenge for the EAW Answers World Championship, forcing HBB to attempt to force it out of Nico through a submission, only for Sebastian Monroe to finally cave and allow him the opportunity.)
Stew-O: IT’S TIME, JAKE! THE EAW ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP IS ABOUT TO BE PUT ON THE LINE WITH THE UNDEFEATED CHAMPION IN NICO BORG DEFENDING HIS TITLE OF INVICTUS AGAINST THE HEART BREAK BOY! HBB fights for not only himself in this match, but he also fights for his protege that will be joining him ringside tonight!
Jake Mercer: That’s right as we must remember the terms to Nico’s contract that bars The Pizza Boy from attaining a rematch for the championship, so this match has the stakes risen to a different level and it’s bound to get personal between these men tonight!
(“Alright” by Kendrick Lamar echoes throughout The Stade Velodrome with The Heart Break Boy rushing out to the standing ovation of the crowd, taking in the adulation of the French audience before he stops on the stage and looks towards the back, seeing The Pizza Boy follow behind him to where they both are cheered by the fans. HBB and Pizza Boy shake hands and embrace before they both walk down the ramp together!)
Ring Announcer: Introducing the challenger, he is from Ferguson, Missouri… weighing in at 220 pounds… accompanied to the ring by The Pizza Boy… “God’s Son”… “King Mapogo”… “The Golden Boy”… THHHEEEEE HEEAAARRRRTTTTT BRREEEAAAAKKKKK BOOOYYYYY!!!
Stew-O: So much is on the line here tonight, as the stakes have been higher than any other world title confrontation he has had at King of Elite, as The Heart Break Boy fights for everything here tonight! Not only does he hope to return to the former glory of being a world champion of this illustrious company once more, but he fights for his former partner to get his due rematch for the EAW Answers World Championship!
Jake Mercer: Honorable reason to be competing against one of the most talented individuals in the Dynasty roster, but he’s going to have to do what he has done in such a long time and win on this stage! He’s failed twice to capture the world championship at this event and tonight, it could be the third strike in his chase for championship gold!
(“You Want It Darker” by Leonard Cohen plays on the speakers to where Invictus reveals himself on the stage, walking out dressed in a golden variant of his attire, with Nico Borg cradling the EAW Answers World Championship. Sebastian Monroe follows behind him with a microphone in his hand, already stopping the ring announcer before he can say anything, clearing his throat.)
Sebastian Monroe: Ladies and gentlemen, my name is Sebastian Monroe and I am the advocate for The Champion of Champions himself! The man that hails from Valetta, Malta and weighed in tonight at 196 pounds of glorious talent! The Maltese Falcon! THE REIGNING, DEFENDING, AND UNDISPUTED EAW ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION! INVICTUS HIMSELF! VINDICEM VINDICARUM! NIIICCCCOOOOO BOORRRRGGGGG!!!
(Nico Borg nods in approval and raises the championship high in the air for all of the onlookers in the audience to view before he makes his arrival to the ring.)
Stew-O: INVICTUS HAS ARRIVED AND THE NAME HAS BEEN FITTING WITH NICO BEING UNDEFEATED SINCE HIS RETURN TO THE DYNASTY ROSTER! Not only that, but he has recently been crowned Champion of Champion through defeated the first-ever female world champion and the longest-reigning world champion in the history of EAW! This man has been on fire and tonight, he needs to remain on that level if he wants to defeat The Heart Break Boy here tonight!
Jake Mercer: I’m sure that he’ll be able to walk out with a victory here tonight, Stew! He has the support of Sebastian Monroe and everything looks to be on his side in this match, so I’m of the belief that Invictus will continue to reign supreme here tonight! However, with everything surrounding this match, maybe the pressure could finally result in the fall of Invictus!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Stew-O: This match has been called to start as the prize that has been pitted between these two men is the EAW Answers World Championship! One of the richest prizes in the sport that has been elevated with the work of Nico Borg, who has been able to showcase that his skill makes it the most desired prize of the world, evident through the challenge of The Heart Break Boy! Both men are joined at ringside with Sebastian Monroe representing his client Nico and The Pizza Boy joining his mentor in The Heart Break Boy, both looking on in anticipation for the war that will commence once these two start to do battle! The capacity crowd in attendance is just dying to watch these two men finally get a hold of each other, to watch the drama unfold in the ring between these two men for the EAW Answers World Championship, and see if Invictus can finally be broken under the bright lights on one of the biggest FPVs of the season! Nico and HBB both start to pace their way towards one another, the champion reaching out for the feeling out process in this match for a quick grab of the challenger, but HBB quickly steps back to where he grabs nothing!
Jake Mercer: Look at the face of The Heart Break Boy! He’s displaying quite the confidence in this match with Nico Borg, motioning towards him to bring him whatever fight he has inside of him in this match, which starts to show to be eating away at the champion! Nico believes that there’s no equal to him on this roster and just the sheer disrespect that is being shown to him with this is enough to set Nico off! NICO LUNGES IN TOWARDS HBB FOR THE LOCK-UP, BUT HE DUCKS UNDER THE GRAPPLE OF HBB AND WRAPS HIS ARMS AROUND THE WAIST OF HBB FOR WHAT COULD BE A GERMAN SUPLEX! WAIT! WAIT! WAIT! HBB IS SPINNING AROUND TO TRY TO GET BEHIND NICO, BUT NICO KEEPS HIS HANDS LOCKED AROUND THE WAIST OF HBB! HBB FINALLY GRABS THE WAIST OF NICO AND LIFTS HIM UP FOR THE SAITO SUPLEX! HBB rolls up to a knee with Nico holding his neck before he rolls up to his feet WITH HBB SHOWING THAT WINNING SMILE AND CURLING HIS FINGER TO TELL HIM TO COME ON! The Pizza Boy is excited as he starts to cheer on his mentor from the corner while Sebastian Monroe starts to scream at Nico to bring the fight that he knows he has to against HBB!
Stew-O: Nico Borg stands to his feet with a burning scowl made towards The Heart Break Boy BEFORE HE LUNGES IN AND LOCKS HIS HEAD INTO A SIDE-HEADLOCK! NICO SQUEEZES DOWN ON THE NECK OF HBB, BUT HBB STARTS TO PUSH THE CHAMPION INTO THE ROPES AND THROWS HIM OFF ACROSS THE RING INTO THE OPPOSITE ROPES! Nico runs down and rebounds off of them COMING BACK TO A FLYING ELBOW STRIKE RIGHT INTO HIS FACE BY THE CHALLENGER! NICO ROLLS TO THE OUTSIDE FROM THE SHOT BEFORE HBB KIPS RIGHT BACK UP TO HIS FEET AND STARTS TO ENJOY THE RIDE OF MOMENTUM HE’S ON! With HBB in the ring just running with the stride of confidence that he has, Nico has made it to the outside and slams on the canvas in frustration, with Sebastian Monroe attempting to calm him down and whisper to him! He might be talking about a potential gameplan to stop the challenger from this huge lead that he’s gained against the champion! HBB turns around to look towards his protege, The Pizza Boy, to nod in assurance that the title will be his tonight! The referee starts to call for the count!
Referee: ONE!… TWO!… THREE!
Jake Mercer: Nico Borg screams that he’s about to be in the ring towards the referee before he finishes contemplating with Sebastian Monroe about the next stage of the game plan towards him retaining his title against a very prepared Heart Break Boy! Nico walks up the steps and enters back into the ring in his corner, telling the referee that he’s in the ring, as the referee calls for both men to go back at it! HBB doesn’t have any problems with that AS HE RUSHES IN AND STRIKES WITH A CRACKLING KNIFE-EDGE CHOP TO THE CHEST OF NICO BEFORE GRABBING HIM BY THE ARM TO THROW HIM TO THE OPPOSITE CORNER! HBB sprints in behind him ONLY FOR NICO TO GRAB THE TOP ROPE AND START TO FLOAT OVER THE CHALLENGER! WHAT AGILITY FROM THE CHAMPION RIGHT THERE! Nico lands on his feet as HBB turns RIGHT INTO AN ELBOW STRIKE TO THE JAW THAT ROCKS HIM! HBB stumbles back from the shot BUT NICO IS KEEPING THE PRESSURE ON HIS OPPONENT AS HE LIFTS HIM OFF THE GROUND INTO HIS ARMS AS HE CARRIES HIM TOWARDS THE CENTER OF THE RING IN A GENERAL FALLAWAY SLAM CARRY! He finally stops in the middle of the ring and transitions to where his arm is wrapped around his neck LIFTING HIM UP IN THE AIR FOR THE BRAINBUSTER! NO! HBB DROPS HIS FEET DOWN TO THE FLOOR TO WHERE HE DROPS THE CHAMPION WITH THE NECKBREAKER! HBB STILL IN FIRM CONTROL OF THIS MATCH EVEN WITH THE ADVANCES MADE BY THE CHAMPION WITH THE CHALLENGER PUSHING HIMSELF BACK UP TO HIS FEET! The Heart Break Boy starts to feel the energy of the crowd throughout his entire body as he grabs Nico by the leg LOOKING TO LOCK HIM IN THE SHARP– HOLD UP! LOOK AT THE RING APRON! SEBASTIAN MONROE HOPS ON THE RING APRON AND STARTS TO GET THE ATTENTION OF THE HEART BREAK BOY! Sebastian is screaming about The Heart Break Boy being a disgrace of a legend in this business as we can see HBB fuming at this statement, but The Pizza Boy rushes up and yanks Monroe by his leg PULLING HIM DOWN TO THE FLOOR AS THE TWO START TO GET IN A HEATED ARGUMENT!
Stew-O: Sebastian Monroe and The Pizza Boy are arguing on the outside as The Heart Break Boy starts to back up to make his way back BUT NICO BORG RUSHES IN AND DRIVES HIS ELBOW RIGHT INTO THE KNEECAP OF HBB FOR THE CHOP BLOCK! HBB DROPS TO A KNEE AND THE OPPORTUNISTIC CHAMPION JUMPS ON THE CHANCE FOR A FULL FRONTAL ASSAULT IN THE GROUND AND POUND! FISTS JUST FLYING STRAIGHT INTO THE FACE OF HBB LIKE BOMBS FROM INVICTUS AS HE JUST GOES TO TOWN ON HIM IN THIS MATCH! Nico pushes himself back up to his feet and grabs HBB the hair, smacking him in the face as he talks down upon him about his failures at becoming world champion, before he gets up to his feet LAUNCHING HIM INTO THE TURNBUCKLE! HE THROWS HBB TO THE TURNBUCKLE WHERE HIS SHOULDER SMACKS HARD INTO THE TURNBUCKLE POST BEFORE HE COLLAPSES TO THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING! This is the opportunity that Nico needs in this match to turn the tide back towards him as we see HBB lying out onto the floor! He’s cradling his shoulder as he attempts to get back to his feet when Nico exits to the ring apron and stands there CALLING FOR HBB TO GET BACK TO HIS FEET AS HE STALKS HIM LIKE THE PREY HE HAS BECOME! HBB is able to stand back to his feet as he turns around MET WITH A DIVING KNEE STRIKE FROM THE RING APRON RIGHT INTO THE MOUTH OF THE CHALLENGER!
Jake Mercer: THE HEART BREAK BOY JUST COLLAPSES DOWN ONTO THE FLOOR WHILE NICO BORG IS ABLE TO STICK THE LANDING AND MOCK THE FANS THAT HAVE TURNED AGAINST HIM HERE IN FRANCE! These people want to see the story of The Heart Break Boy finally reclaiming the gold that has always been fingertips away from him at this event, but Nico has become known for being the crown prince of shattered dreams! Before the referee could start his count for them both being outside of the ring, Nico lifts HBB up to his feet and throws him right back into the ring before he slides in himself! Nico starts to watch his opponent very closely while HBB pushes himself up to his feet to where he’s met with the devious smile of Invictus! Nico lunges forward and grips him by the neck to pull him under his arm LOOKING FOR THE BRAINBUSTER ONCE MORE! NOPE! HBB SPINS OUT OF HIS ARM AND LEAPS IN THE AIR FOR THE ENZIGURI TO RATTLE HIS SKULL WITH! WOW! NICO DUCKS UNDER THE ENZIGURI WITH HBB LANDING HARD ON THE CANVAS WHILE NICO GRABS HIM TO DEADLIFT HIM UP ONTO HIS SHOULDERS! SPINNING SIT-OUT POWERBOMB! NICO HOLDS HBB DOWN ON THE CANVAS AS HE GOES FOR THE FIRST PINFALL OF THE MATCH!
Referee: ONNNEEE!!!… TWWWOOO!
Stew-O: NO! THE HEART BREAK BOY THROWS HIS SHOULDER UP FOR THE KICKOUT AS NICO BORG MUST CONTINUE THIS FIGHT WITH THE BONAFIDE LEGEND! The Pizza Boy makes a sigh of relief from that shoulder being thrown up with Sebastian Monroe slamming on the canvas and demanding that his champion finishes this match! HBB holds that shoulder as it was the one bashed right into the turnbuckle post earlier to where Nico starts to stomp away it before he figures out the next stage of the annihilation of his challenger! He grabs HBB by the throat and starts to pull him up to his feet, badgering him with remarks about the uselessness of the fight he’s bringing into this match, BUT HE’S MET WITH A HARD SLAP TO THE FACE BY HBB! HE’S FIGHTING FOR MORE THAN HIMSELF IN THIS MATCH TONIGHT, HE’S FIGHTING FOR HIS PROTEGE’S CHANCE AT REDEMPTION, AND THAT’S WHAT MIGHT BE DRIVING HIM TO KEEP PUSHING IN THIS MATCH! OH! NICO MEETS THAT SLAP WITH A RUTHLESS HEADBUTT THAT FLOORS THE CHALLENGER AS HE SHAKES HIS HEAD IN RESPONSE FROM IT!
Jake Mercer: Nico Borg starts to have a furious look in his eyes as he gazes over towards the fallen challenger to where he lifts The Heart Break Boy off the canvas onto his shoulders! What is he thinking of doing right here? Nico starts walking over to the turnbuckle corner, climbing his way up onto it, to where he stops at the second turnbuckle PULLING HIS BODY AROUND TO WHERE HE CAN GET HIM IN THE MALTESE CROSS! HE STARTS TO SCREAM ABOUT THIS BEING THE END FOR HIS OPPONENT BEFORE HE FALLS BACK BEHIND HIM TOWARDS THE CENTER OF THE RING! AVALANCHE OVER-THE-SHOULDER BACK-TO-BELLY PILEDRIVER! HE JUST DROPPED THE GOLDEN BOY RIGHT DOWN IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING AS THE AUDIENCE IS LEFT STUNNED BY THE LENGTHS HE JUST WENT TO PUT THE HALL OF FAMER DOWN TO THE CANVAS! HBB starts to roll himself out of the ring to avoid the pin BUT NICO QUICKLY ROLLS HIM ON HIS SHOULDERS BEFORE HE REACHES THE BOTTOM ROPE TO WHERE HE COVERS HIM FOR THE PIN ATTEMPT!
Referee: ONNNEEE!!!… TWWWOOO!!!… THRRREEE!!!
Stew-O: HOLD UP! LOOK! THE HEART BREAK BOY WAS ABLE TO PUT HIS FOOT ON THE BOTTOM ROPE AND AVOID BEING PINNED BY NICO BORG! THE PIZZA BOY IS JUMPING UP AND DOWN AT RINGSIDE WHILE RALLYING HIS MENTOR TO GET UP AND FIGHT, SEBASTIAN MONROE IS GIVING A DEATHLY GLARE TOWARDS THE CHALLENGER FROM HIS SURVIVAL, AND NICO LOOKS TO BE ALMOST PLEADING WITH THE REFEREE TO CALL IT RIGHT THERE! The thousands upon thousands of matches that The Heart Break Boy, the veteran experience that he has acquired through the years, it just saved him right there from being losing another golden opportunity! Nico grabs HBB by his hair and starts to drag him up to his feet, the challenger looking almost limp from the punishment that he’s had to endure from Invictus, as he finally reaches up to his feet! WOAH! HBB SPRINGS OUT OF NICO’S GRASP AND LEAPS IN THE AIR FOR THE JUMPING CUTTER! HE JUST DROPS NICO WHERE HE STANDS AS HE SHOOTS UP TO HIS FEET TO FEEL THE ADRENALINE OF LANDING THAT MOVE DULLING THE PAIN THAT HE HAS BEEN DEALT WITH!
Jake Mercer: THE HEART BREAK BOY IS MOUNTING A COMEBACK AS HE MOVES OVER TOWARDS THE ROPES WHILE NICO BORG STARTS TO STAND BACK TO HIS FEET! Nico lifts his body up to all fours as HBB stands in front of him WITH HBB SPRINTING IN TO KNOCK HIM ON HIS BACK WITH THE SHINING WIZARD! THE KNEE SMASHES RIGHT INTO THE FACE OF NICO AS HE LANDS BACK ON THE CANVAS TO WHERE HBB ROLLS UP TO HIS FEET AND DIRECTS HIS ATTENTION OVER TOWARDS THE TURNBUCKLE! He points over towards the turnbuckle to where the crowd starts to cheer as they know what he’s about to do, The Pizza Boy smacks his hands against the ring apron to rally him onto to do it, as Sebastian Monroe is pleading for HBB to show mercy! To show mercy to the champion that has been made from his hands!
Stew-O: This is the wrath of God at work, Jake! There is no mercy between these ropes tonight! The Heart Break Boy exits the ring ropes to stand on the ring apron and walk his way to the top of the turnbuckle! He climbs his way up to the top STARING DOWN WITH NICO STILL LYING ACROSS THE CANVAS! HBB LEAPS OFF THE CANVAS FOR THE HEART BREAK ELBOW! DIVING ELBOW DROP STRAIGHT INTO THE HEART OF NICO BORG! HBB HOOKS NICO’S LEG IN TO GO FOR THE PIN ATTEMPT RIGHT HERE!
Referee: ONNNEEE!!!… TWWWOOO!!!…
Jake Mercer: NO! NICO BORG POWERS OUT OF THE PIN TO GET HIS SHOULDERS OFF OF THE MAT TO WHERE THE HEART BREAK BOY WAS STILL NOT ABLE TO PUT THE MAN AWAY! Both men are digging deep for the chance to be known as the EAW Answers World Champion and only one of them will be the one to do so in front of their compatriots! The Pizza Boy telling HBB to fight on with Sebastian Monroe pleading with his chosen champion to stand up on his feet! HBB SPRINGS UP WITH THE KIP UP TO LIFE AS HE STARTS TO STRUT AROUND THE RING BEFORE STANDING OVER NEAR THE TURNBUCKLE CORNER! HE STARTS CHEERING ON THE CROWD BEFORE STOMPING HIS FOOT ON THE GROUND AS HE STARTS TUNING IT UP! HE’S LOOKING FOR THAT GOLDPRINT RIGHT HERE AND NOW!
Stew-O: Nico Borg starts to push his way back up to his feet, holding his chest still from the elbow drop that he sustained from the challenger, as he stands on his feet TO STUMBLE RIGHT INTO THE GOLDPRINT FROM THE HEART BREAK BOY! THE CROWD EXCLAIMS IN ADULATION… ONLY FOR IT TO DEAFEN DOWN INTO DISAPPOINTMENT! NICO CAUGHT THE BOOT OF HBB AND SPINS HIM AROUND BEFORE STRIKING WITH A EUROPEAN UPPERCUT! SHADES OF THE DEPARTED LANNISTER THAT HE HAD A MAJOR CLASSIC WITH BACK AT GRAND RAMPAGE IN 2017! NICO PULLS HBB IN BETWEEN HIS LEGS AND SIGNALS TO THE END FOR THE FANS AS HE HOISTS HBB UP ON HIS SHOULDERS FOR WHAT COULD BE THE LAST RITES! POWERBOMB LUNGBLOWER! HBB HAS JUST BEEN DRIVEN DOWN ON BOTH KNEES OF INVICTUS THAT COULD HAVE CRUSHED HIS SPINE! NICO ROLLS HBB ON HIS SHOULDERS AND HOOKS HIS LEGS ONCE AGAIN TO GO FOR ANOTHER PIN ATTEMPT TO END THIS MATCH AND REMAIN THE UNDEFEATED CHAMPION OF DYNASTY! CAN HE DO IT?
Referee: ONNNEEE!!!… TWWWOOO!!!… THHHRRREEE!!
Jake Mercer: WHAT? WHAT? THE HEART BREAK BOY HAS JUST KICKED OUT OF THE LAST RITES! HOW IN THE WORLD DID HBB JUST KICK OUT OF THAT? NICO BORG IS MET WITH DISBELIEF AS HE JUMPS UP TO HIS FEET, CLUTCHING AT THE COLLAR OF THE REFEREE TO WHERE HE’S JUST SCREAMING TO HIM ABOUT THE CADENCE OF HIS COUNT, AS HE’S LIVID THAT THE HEART BREAK BOY WASN’T PUT AWAY ALREADY! Nico starts becoming frustrated about this and decides to return to his opponent, bringing him up to his feet by his hair once more, looking him dead in the face BEFORE STRIKING WITH ELBOWS RIGHT INTO HIS FACE! STIFF STRIKES THAT AR– KNEE TO THE STOMACH! HBB STRIKES WITH A KNEE TO THE STOMACH BEFORE LIFTING NICO UP IN THE AIR WITH ALL OF HIS STRENGTH! BRAINBUSTER! HE SPIKES NICO RIGHT ON THE TOP OF HIS HEAD RIGHT INTO THE CANVAS! HBB has Nico right where he wants him as he starts to make his way back to the turnbuckle corner CALLING FOR HIS ACE MOVE IN THE GOLDPRINT ONCE MORE!
Stew-O: Nico Borg is rolling onto all fours to get back to his feet as you can see The Heart Break Boy just stomping away to call for it BUT LOOK AT THE RING APRON! SEBASTIAN MONROE LEAPS ON THE RING APRON ONCE MORE TO WHERE HE STARTS TO RUSH TOWARDS HBB WITH A PUNCH TO THE FACE! NO! THE PIZZA BOY JUMPS TO THE APRON AND RESPONDS WITH A SUPERKICK OF HIS OWN TO STOP MONROE! The referee starts to walk over towards Pizza Boy and Monroe before he catches the attention of HBB and stops him from stomping for The Goldprint! HBB starts to wonder why Pizza Boy is on the ring apron while his protege explains that he was stopping Monroe from getting involved in the match! WAIT! NO, NOT LIKE THIS! NICO SHOOTS UP AND CATCHES HBB ON HIS SHOULDERS AND HOLDS HIS HANDS TO WHERE HE CAN’T ESCAPE! THE PIZZA BOY REACHES OUT TO TRY AND GRAB HBB TO PREVENT HIM FROM BEING DROPPED, BUT HE CAN’T ESCAPE HIS FATE! MILVIAN BRIDGE! THE STRAIGHT JACKET ELECTRIC CHAIR DROPS HBB RIGHT INTO THE MIDDLE OF THE RING AS NICO BRIDGES IT FOR THE PIN ATTEMPT! THIS HAS TO BE IT!
Referee: ONNNEEE!!!… TWWWOOO!!!… THHHRRREEE!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“You Want It Darker” by Leonard Cohen plays in the background as Nico Borg is handed the EAW Answers World Championship by the referee, standing on his feet to celebrate this victory, but not before being chased out of the ring by The Pizza Boy!)
Ring Announcer: Here is your winner… AND STTTIIIILLLLLLL EAW ANNNSSSWWWEEERRRSSSS WOOORRRLLLDDDD CHHHAAAAMMMPPPIIIOOONNNN… NIIICCCCOOOOO BOORRRGGGGG!!!
Jake Mercer: HE HAS DONE IT! INVICTUS REMAINS ON TOP OF THE DYNASTY MOUNTAIN, CONTINUING TO SIT UPON THE THRONE OF CHAMPION, AS HE LOOKS DOWN UPON THE PEONS OF DYNASTY! Nico Borg has conquered God’s wrath tonight and with that, he remains our world champion!
Stew-O: Yes, but look at how he did it! Sebastian Monroe once again got involved in the situation, forcing The Pizza Boy to be involved to take him out, and it brought question to The Heart Break Boy about what was going on! HBB WAS ABOUT TO WIN IT ALL! However, HBB loses out once more and now everyone has to wonder, can HBB do it ever again? Can he ever be world champion in EAW?
(The Pizza Boy turns around and starts to help HBB up to his feet as Nico Borg and Sebastian Monroe leave the ring in celebration of the defense they have made.)
The Pizza Boy: I’m sorry, HBB…
(HBB stands up with a solemn look on his face… embracing his protege in his arms for a hug. He pats his friend on the back before he looks him in the eyes.)
The Heart Break Boy: I’m sorry…
(HBB steps away and looks towards the audience in disappointment… RIGHT BEFORE HE BLASTS THE PIZZA BOY IN THE FACE WITH THE GOLDPRINT!)
Stew-O: WHAT? WHAT ON EARTH ARE WE WITNESSING? THE HEART BREAK BOY HAS JUST DROPPED THE PIZZA BOY WITH A GOLDPRINT! WHAT IS GOING ON?
Jake Mercer: I DON’T KNOW, BUT I THINK THE HEART BREAK BOY HAS ALREADY SNAPPED FROM EVERY CHANCE AT THE WORLD TITLE BEING TAKEN AWAY FROM HIM, BUT ADDED ONTO FEELING BETRAYED THAT HIS OPPORTUNITY WAS TAKEN AWAY BY PIZZA BOY? HE’S HAD ENOUGH!
(The Heart Break Boy stands above The Pizza Boy with a stone cold look on his face, looking down onto him with disappointment still coming from his eyes, as Pizza Boy is splayed out in the middle of the ring.)
The Heart Break Boy: I’m sorry that you were ever involved in this match in the first place.
(The Heart Break Boy exits the ring with the fans turned against him instantly, casting him out of their approval after this heinous act, as he just walks away and leaves Pizza Boy in the middle of the ring without turning back.)
(The camera fades backstage to the Heart Break Gal being checked on by a Doctor as Cameron watches from nearby)
Cameron: So is she alright to go?
HBG: Are you serious? You think it matters what this quack says?
Cameron: I guess you’re right. Not like it was gonna stop me.
HBG: Tiberius could have broken every bone in my Goddamn body and I’d still be going out to that ring. I’ve come this far. I’m not stopping until we’re the EAW, Openweight, AND Unified Tag Team Champions.
Doctor: You guys can’t just throw caution to the wind like that, you know that, right? You’re trained athletes, but everyone has their limits. You bruised the Hell out of your body and you’re lucky you didn’t actually break anything in that Ladder Match. And as for you–
(Cameron waves the Doctor off and nods)
Cameron: Yeah, yeah, yeah. We got it. Those matches were a horse of another color. This is a tag team match. What’s the worst that could happen?
HBG: Well… I mean, The High Rollerz did almost kill Robbie once…. BUT… They failed, of course, and that’s because their failures, so why worry? They’re clearly natural born failures, and failing is EXACTLY what they’re gonna do tonight. Ladder Match, Three-Way Dance, bruises, broken bones, blood, sweat, not tears because we don’t cry, that’s for The High Rollerz, but you get my point – none of it matters. What matters is that you and I make HISTORY tonight by any means.
(HBG holds up her EAW Championship as Cameron pats the Openweight Championship on her shoulder)
HBG: Nobody’s stopping that. Not them. Not Tiberius. Not Sheridan or Stark. Nobody.
(HBG swats the hand of the Doctor away)
HBG: And especially not you. We’re through here.
Cameron: You heard the World Champ. No touching, Doc, but… What was that old line of your’s again, HBG? It’s okay to stare?
(Cameron looks at the Doctor for a moment)
Cameron: Eh, don’t do that either. We’re taken women, Doc, show some class for Godsakes.
(Cameron grins for a moment before her expression turns serious as she follows HBG to get ready for their upcoming match)

(The camera cuts back to the Stade Velodrome as the crowd gets on their feet for the upcoming match)
Drake: CAN YOU SMELL IT, PIERRE?!
Pierre: Sorry, that was me. I–
Drake: NO, YOU IDIOT! THE SMELL OF VICTORY! WE’RE ABOUT TO WITNESS HISTORY ONCE MORE! JUST YOU WAIT!
(“My Name is Human” by Highly Suspect plays all throughout the Stade Velodrome as Di Consentes make their way out to the stage, both dressed in matching red and black attire as Cameron Ella Ava carries the Openweight Championship while Heart Break Gal has the EAW Championship around her waist)
Announcer: The following contest is scheduled for ONE fall and is for THE EAW UNIFIED TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIPS!!…..
(The crowd cheers as HBG and Cameron make their way towards the ring)
Announcer: First, the challengers!…. Making their way towards the ring…. THEY ARE THE WINNERS OF THE 2017 EAW TAG TEAM GRAND PRIX…. THEY ARE THE TEAM OF…. THE EAW OPENWEIGHT CHAMPION, CAMERON ELLA AVA…. THE ELITE ANSWERS WRESTLING WORLD CHAMPION, THE HEART BREAK GAL…. THIS IS DI COOOOONNNNNSSSSSEEEENNNNNTTTTEEEEESSSSS!!!
(Heart Break Gal and Cameron Ella Ava hold up their Openweight Championship and EAW Championship for the crowd to see as they get in the ring)
Drake: YES! YES! YES! PIERRE, CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?! CAN YOU BELIEVE THE FEAT THE HEART BREAK GAL HAS PULLED OFF! SHE COULD WALK OUT OF HERE TONIGHT AS NOT ONLY THE EAW CHAMPION, BUT THE EAW UNIFIED TAG TEAM CHAMPION AS WELL!
Pierre: And Cameron could–
Drake: Yeah, yeah, whatever. ANYWAY, WHAT A BRUTAL LADDER MATCH HBG WENT THROUGH JUST EARLIER IN THE NIGHT, BUT SHE REMAINS CONFIDENT THAT SHE CAN GO THROUGH WITH THIS MATCH, NO MATTER WHAT! I BELIEVE IN HER, AND YOU SHOULD TOO!
Pierre: That’s true, you have to admire the resilience of HBG, as well as Cameron Ella Ava as BOTH of them have had to compete in hellacious Championship contests just earlier in the night! Their bodies haven’t had much time to recover, but they remain confident they can put The High Rollerz away and walk out with even more gold.
(“Becoming The Bull” by Atreyu plays all throughout the Stade Velodrome as Jack Ripley and David Davidson make their way out to the stage in black and white attire with the EAW Unified Tag Team Championships)
Announcer: And their opponents!…. Making their way towards the ring…. THEY ARE THE REIGNING AND DEFENDING EAW UNIFIED TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS…. THEY ARE THE TEAM OF…. JACK RIPLEY…. DAVID DAVIDSON…. THE HIIIIIGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHH ROLLERZ!!!….
Pierre: Last year at this time, these two young men made history by becoming the new EAW Unified Tag Team Champions, and they have yet to let go of their grasp on this entire division ever since as they’ve absolutely dominated those who got in their paths, and made even MORE history two months ago when they shocked the World by dethroning Ares Vendetta and Lannister to become the first ever three-time Unified Tag Team Champions.
Drake: Jesus, Pierre, why be subtle about it? Hop the announce table and just superglue your lips straight to their asses, why don’t ya?! Get over yourself! These guys dominated a division that’s barely alive! Their time is up! It’s time for HBG to show them why she’s the most dominant athlete in this company regardless of gender or division! She’s done it all and she’ll do it again!
Pierre: It could definitely happen, but it’s easier said than done – don’t go underestimating a tag team like The High Rollerz.
(The High Rollerz and Di Consentes trash talk one another in the center of the ring as the Referee gets between them. The Official is handed the Unified Tag Team Championships, showing them to Di Consentes, showing them back to The High Rollerz, and finally holding them up for the hard camera and the audience to see before handing them off to a worker at ringside. David Davidson goes to his team’s corner as Heart Break Gal gets ready in the ring while Cameron Ella Ava gets on the apron)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Drake: HERE WE GO! HBG wastes no time carrying her team as she volunteers to start this contest off with Jack Ripley! Both of them immediately circling the ring, looking for the first move to make… And they go in for a collar and elbow tie up! Jack immediately escapes it and catches HBG with a side headlock! HBG looking to send Jack off, into the ropes!… It’s no good as Jack stops the momentum by tightening his grip around the head of HBG!
Pierre: You have to wonder how hurt HBG is right now after what she’s already been through tonight, but she knows she has to keep going as she struggles… HBG slips out Jack’s grasp! SHE CATCHES HIM FROM BEHIND WITH A WAIST LOCK! Jack immediately throws an elbow back into the side of HBG’s head! Standing switch by Jack into a waist lock of his own! HBG swings with an elbow this time, but nobody’s home as Jack ducks it! HBG is turned around and TAKEN DOWN WITH A SIDE HEADLOCK TAKEDOWN! HBG’s looking fatigued, she may not have had enough time to recuperate! Her adrenaline from earlier has long-since worn off!
Drake: Shut the Hell up, Pierre, you Goddamn Negative Nancy! Stop trying to make things sound worse than they are! HBG is fine! We’re fine!
Pierre: Well things aren’t looking so fine as Jack increases the pressure on this side headlock to a grounded HBG! She’s got no choice but to fight it with all she’s got left in her! Jack doing all he can to stop her, but HBG is adamant about getting back to her feet, slowly working her way to a vertical base from this headlock position… She’s got it! No! Jack forces her right back down to the canvas in this side headlock! HBG manages to wrap her legs around the head of Jack! Jack’s quick to break the headlock and roll over, still caught by HBG’s legs! Jack rolls himself over… Standing on his head in this scissors hold by HBG! HE YANKS HIMSELF OUT OF HBG’S GRASP! HBG IN A SEATED POSITION AS JACK RUSHES IN WITH A PENALTY KICK!! NOBODY’S HOME AS HBG DODGES!
Drake: HBG SCRAMBLING TO GET BACK TO HER FEET AS RIPLEY CHARGES IN! HBG dodges again as Ripley goes into the ropes! He’s coming back with momentum! RIPLEY WITH A BIG LARIAT! NOBODY’S HOME AS HBG DODGES YET AGAIN! RIPLEY TURNS AROUND IN A HURRY! PELE KICK!! HBG CATCHES RIPLEY WITH A PELE KICK OUT OF THE BLUE! HBG’s already looking for the tag to Cameron as she starts making her way towards her team’s corner! Cam’s reaching out! I wouldn’t trust it, HBG!
Pierre: HBG may be hurting more than she expected as she goes for the tag to Cameron… She’s got it! NO–DAVID DAVIDSON RUSHES IN WITH A BIG FOREARM TO CAMERON, KNOCKING HER OFF THE APRON! HBG gets back to her feet! Davidson charges at her! HBG with a LOUD boot to the face of the incoming Davidson! RIPLEY FROM BEHIND WITH A WAIST LOCK AS DAVIDSON REMAINS ON HIS FEET! DAVIDSON WITH A BIG KNEE TO THE FACE OF A DISTRACTED HBG AS RIPLEY IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWS IT WITH A BIG BRIDGING GERMAN SUPLEX!!
Referee: ONE!!!!!……. TWO!!!
Drake: HBG KICKS OUT, TO NO SURPRISE! It’s gonna take more than that to keep her down, you damn brats! The Referee yells for Davidson to get out of the ring as he has no choice but to comply now while a damaged Cam remains on the outside, struggling to get back up to her team’s corner! Nonetheless, the damage is done as HBG’s on the defensive while Ripley gets back to his feet, stomping away at her while she does all she can to get back up! Ripley grabs HBG by her hair, dragging her up! A big irish whip sends HBG crashing hard into the corner of The High Rollerz! RIPLEY PICKS UP MOMENTUM! HE CRASHES INTO A CORNERED HBG WITH A BIG FOREARM TO THE FACE! There’s the tag to Davidson! He’s officially in as Ripley pulls HBG out of the corner… He picks her up in a stalling vertical suplex! He’s got her as Davidson climbs to the top… DAVIDSON LEAPS FOR A MODIFIED FLYING CROSSBODY INTO A STALLING SUPLEX FROM RIPLEY ON THE HEART BREAK GAL!! DAMN YOU! DAMN THE BOTH OF YOU!
Pierre: AND THERE’S THE IMMEDIATE COVER BY DAVIDSON, HOPING TO FINISH THIS OFF!
Drake: Cam shows some value by breaking it up with a stomp to the back of Davidson! The Referee immediately yells for her to get out of the ring as she has no choice to comply! Show some initiative, damn it! Just beat the Hell out of him! Get HBG out of harm’s way!
Pierre: Davidson looks more amused than anything after that stomp to his back to break it up as he clutches the hair of HBG, dragging the EAW Champion up… Davidson with a sadistic look on his face as he stares down with Cameron from her team’s corner! Davidson verbally taunting Cameron as he holds up a damaged HBG! HBG CATCHES DAVIDSON OFF-GUARD WITH A BIG ELBOW TO THE FACE! ANOTHER ELBOW FIRES OFF INTO DAVIDSON! DAVIDSON RETURNS IT WITH MULTIPLE CLUBBING FOREARMS TO THE SPINE OF HBG! He looks infuriated by HBG’s attempt to turn things around! He was hoping for an easier time, but he should have known better! DAVIDSON TURNS HER AROUND AND CONNECTS WITH A LOUD EUROPEAN UPPERCUT!
Drake: HBG IMMEDIATELY FIRES BACK WITH A EUROPEAN UPPERCUT OF HER OWN! I don’t think Davidson was expecting that! HBG with a raging fire in her eyes! She’s not letting these two cut the ring in half that easily! DAVIDSON WITH A SECOND BIG EUROPEAN UPPERCUT! HBG WITH A EUROPEAN UPPERCUT! DAVIDSON WITH A EUROPEAN UPPERCUT! HBG RETURNS IT WITH ANOTHER EUROPEAN UPPERCUT!! ANOTHER!! ANOTHER!! AND YET ANOTHER EUROPEAN UPPERCUT TO DAVID DAVIDSON FROM HBG AS HE LOOKS DAZED!! HE’S FALTERING! HBG CAPS IT OFF WITH A SPINNING BACKFIST!!
Pierre: It’s no good as Davidson ducks it and catches HBG with a waist lock! HBG is fighting it, but it’s too late as Davidson sets her up!! HOUSE OF CARDS SUPLEX!!! NO–THE ROLLING RELEASE SUPLEX IS NO GOOD AS HBG MANAGES TO LAND ON HER FEET! SHE STUCK THE LANDING AS DAVIDSON RUSHES BACK UP! HE CHARGES STRAIGHT FOR HBG! HBG CHARGES IN! SHE DUCKS THE BOOT OF DAVIDSON!! TAG TO CAMERON! HBG LEAPS INTO A TAG TO CAMERON!! SHE’S IN!
Drake: ABOUT TIME SHE DID SOMETHING AS CAM JUMPS THE ROPES AND CHARGES IN! DAVIDSON WITH ANOTHER BOOT, BUT IT’S YET AGAIN DUCKED AS CAM KEEPS COMING TO NAIL RIPLEY WITH A BIG FOREARM TO THE FACE, SENDING HIM OFF THE APRON! Davidson incoming! He misses a forearm to Cam in the corner, crashing into it instead! Davidson finds himself trapped in the corner as Cam immediately starts unloading with a flurry of lefts and rights! A big forearm to Davidson now from Cam! Cam with an Irish whip! AND DAVIDSON IS SENT STRAIGHT INTO A FOOTBALL TACKLE BY THE HEART BREAK GAL!! HBG HAS DAVIDSON DOWN, UNLOADING WITH A SERIES OF SHOTS WHILE DAVID DOES ALL HE CAN TO DEFEND HIMSELF! HE FORCES HER OFF AND TRIES TO SCRAMBLE BACK TO HIS FEET! HE’S UP TO HIS FEET AND FINDS HIMSELF STARING DOWN WITH BOTH CAM AND HBG! Davidson looks enraged! HE FLIPS THEM BOTH OFF AND CHARGES! DOUBLE SUPERKICK!! A BIG DOUBLE-TEAM SUPERKICK TO DAVIDSON!
Pierre: The High Rollerz may be in big trouble here if Di Consentes can keep this up! Hold on! Jack Ripley’s looking to turn the tide as he climbs to the apron! CAMERON RUSHES IN WITH ANOTHER BIG FOREARM, SENDING RIPLEY RIGHT BACK OFF THE APRON! He’s down on the outside and ripe for the picking based on the look shared between Di Consentes! They’ve got something in mind as Cameron drops to all fours while HBG charges into the ropes! INCOMING!!
Drake: HBG ELEVATES HERSELF OFF OF THE BACK OF CAM AND OVER THE ROPES–DEUS EX MACHINA!!! A HUGE POETRY IN MOTION CONNECTS RIGHT INTO JACK RIPLEY ON THE OUTSIDE!! WHAT TANDEM TAG TEAM OFFENSE HERE! DI CONSENTES ARE ON FIRE! THEY COULD BE LOOKING TO FINISH THINGS OFF RIGHT HERE AND NOW! Cam is back on Davidson, dragging him up!
Pierre: GODDESS’ TOUCH!!!! NO–DAVIDSON DUCKS IT!! HE JUST BARELY AVOIDS WHAT COULD HAVE RESULTED IN A HUGE UPSET LOSS AS HE CATCHES THE WAIST OF CAMERON! HE’S DEADLIFTING HER UP…. CAMERON’S FIGHTING IT! SHE’S FIGHTING WITH AN ELBOW TO THE SKULL OF DAVIDSON! ANOTHER ELBOW! DAVIDSON SENDS HER OFF, INTO THE ROPES! HE CHARGES RIGHT IN AFTER HER! CAMERON STOPS HERSELF AT THE ROPES AND DODGES OUT OF THE WAY AS HBG GETS TO THE APRON AND NAILS AN INCOMING DAVIDSON WITH AN ELBOW TO THE FACE! What a move that was as a dazed Davidson turns around… CAMERON PICKS HIM UP…. A HUGE ALABAMA SLAM CONNECTS IN THE CENTER OF THE RING ON DAVIDSON AS HBG IS IN AND RUSHES TO THE ROPES!! SPRINGBOARD MOONSAULT CONNECTS!!! THEY CALL THAT THE FATAL JUDGMENT AS HBG ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY FOR CAMERON TO COVER DAVIDSON!! THEY’VE GOT IT!
Referee: ONE!!!!!!……… TWO!!!!!!!!!……….
Drake: NO–RIPLEY DRAGS THE REFEREE OUT OF THE RING!! DAMN IT!! COME ON! THAT WAS IT! DAMN IT, CAM!
Pierre: How on Earth was THAT her fault?!
Drake: Shut up! She should have made sure Ripley wasn’t getting up! The Referee’s threatening to disqualify The High Rollerz if they try something like that again! HOLD ON!! HBG COMES CHARGING IN!! SUICIDE DIVE TO RIPLEY!!!
Pierre: RIPLEY PULLS THE REFEREE INTO THE WAY!! HBG NAILED THE REFEREE ON ACCIDENT AS JACK RIPLEY IMMEDIATELY CATCHES HER OFF GUARD AND SENDS HBG CRASHING HARD INTO THE NEARBY STEEL STEPS!! Jack Ripley using everything he possibly can to break the momentum of Di Consentes in this contest! He doesn’t give a damn as long as The High Rollerz can walk out of this victorious! Ripley doesn’t look like he’s finished yet! He drags HBG back up on the outside! Looking to put her away! INCOMING–CAMERON ELLA AVA OUT OF THE DAMN BLUE WITH A PLANCHA OVER THE TOP ROPE, INTO RIPLEY!!! SHE TAKES RIPLEY RIGHT BACK OUT OF THE EQUATION, BUT AT WHAT COST?! She looks like she’s struggling to get back up! She may have finally hit a wall after putting her body through one hard-fought contest tonight, and throwing caution to the wind for a move like that certainly won’t help!
Drake: She’s gotta do what she’s gotta do, Pierre! It’s for the sake of HBG walking out of here as Champion! I don’t give a rat’s ass if she breaks her neck to ensure HBG is victorious! Get up, Cam! She’s working her way back to her feet, clutching the apron… Cam rolls back in with her sights set back on David Davidson! He’s struggling to get up, still feeling the effects of that combination he took earlier! Cam rolls back in, pulling herself up in the corner!! SHE’S IN POSITION TO END THIS! DO IT, DAMN YOU! CAM EXPLODES OUT OF THE CORNER!!
Pierre: GODDESS’ TOUCH!!!!!
Drake: NO–DAVIDSON NAILS HER WITH A SUPERKICK BEFORE SHE CAN CATCH HIM!! DAMN IT, CAM! GODDAMN YOU! YOU HAD ONE JOB! DAVIDSON SEES A GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY! HE’S GOT A CHANCE TO END THIS! HE DRAGS CAM UP WITH ALL HE’S GOT LEFT IN HIM! HE PULLS HER IN! DAVIDSON HOOKS BOTH ARMS! LOOKING FOR THE 86 DRIVER!!!!!
Pierre: CAMERON WITH A SHOCKING AMOUNT OF STRENGTH AS SHE FORCES HERSELF UP TO BACK BODY DROP HER WAY OUT OF IT!! David Davidson crashes onto the canvas as Cameron drops to her knees, visibly in pain! She and HBG have both gone well beyond their limits in this, but they have to keep going! Cameron and Davidson both racing to get back to their feet! Both competitors in a great deal of pain! They’re up as they turn around and lock eyes! Davidson swings! It’s blocked! Cameron with a BIG right hand to Davidson! A FOREARM FROM CAMERON THIS TIME! ANOTHER! A KNEE TO THE JAW ROCKS DAVID DAVIDSON! TAKING A PAGE OUT OF JAMIE O’HARA’S BOOK THERE AS DAVIDSON DROPS TO ONE KNEE! Cameron could be looking for something big… SHE CHARGES TO THE ROPES FOR A SPRINGBOARD ROUNDHOUSE KICK!!
Drake: JACK RIPLEY WITH A CHAIR TO THE FACE OF CAMERON FROM THE OUTSIDE!!! HE JUST CAUGHT HER WITH A CHAIR OUT OF NOWHERE!! CAM IS DAZED!! BLOOD RUNNING DOWN THE FOREHEAD OF CAM AS SHE STRUGGLES TO GET BACK UP FROM ON HER KNEES! SHE’S HOLDING THE ROPES! Cam is up! She’s barely able to stand as she stumbles forward! OFF WITH YOUR HEAD!!!! DAVID DAVIDSON CATCHES HER AT AN OPPORTUNE TIME WITH A RUNNING SINGLE LEG HIGH KNEE AND SHE COULD BE OUT!! SHE HAS TO BE OUT!! RIPLEY ROLLS THE DAMAGED REFEREE BACK INTO THE RING! DAVIDSON GOES FOR THE COVER!!
Referee: ……………. ONE!!!!!!………………. TWO!!!!!!!!!……………………… THREE!!!
Pierre: THE HEART BREAK GAL LUNGES INTO THE COVER JUST IN THE ABSOLUTE KNICK OF TIME TO STOP THIS MATCH FROM ENDING AS RIPLEY TRIED TO STOP HER! HE WAS TOO LATE! HBG HAS JUST BARELY MANAGED TO SAVE THIS ONE! David Davidson looks absolutely livid as he realizes they were so close to finishing this! SO close! They had it right there in their grasp, but they can’t manage to put Di Consentes away once and for all! Not yet! Davidson and HBG lock eyes as they rise back to their feet! HBG doesn’t look like she’s stopping for anything! We saw how incredibly resilient she is already earlier tonight in that brutal Ladder Match! She’s willing to go well beyond her limits!

DOUBLE KICK TO THE SHINS OF HBG AS SHE DROPS TO HER KNEES! DAVIDSON RUSHES INTO THE ROPES! INCOMING!! DRIVE BY KICK BY DAVIDSON TO THE TEMPLE OF HBG!! SHE’S DOWN AS RIPLEY COMES IN NOW! RUNNING SHOOTING STAR PRESS!!!
Drake: CAM SPRINGS UP AND NAILS RIPLEY WITH A DEVASTATING FOREARM SMASH BEFORE HE CAN GET THE SHOOTING STAR!! CAM IS ALIVE ONCE MORE IN THIS AS SHE LAYS INTO RIPLEY! DAVIDSON RUSHES IN WITH RAPID-FIRE SHOTS! RIPLEY FIGHTING BACK AS WELL! CAM IS NOW THE ONE FALLING TO THE NUMBERS GAME HERE! THE HIGH ROLLERZ ARE JUST TOO MUCH! Not to mention she’s losing blood and FAST! She’s an idiot for letting it get this bad! Do something already! THEY CONNECT WITH A BIG DOUBLE-TEAM VERTICAL SUPLEX ON CAM!! Damn it! This is bad! This is very, very bad! The High Rollerz may be looking for the end here as they drag Cam up… She’s got barely anything left in her! Ripley is going to the nearby corner, climbing up as Davidson gets her in position! THEY’RE LOOKING FOR THE JACKPOT!!!!
Pierre: THE HEART BREAK GAL RUSHES INTO THE ROPES AS RIPLEY LOSES HIS BALANCE, DROPPING GROIN-FIRST ON THE TOP TURNBUCKLE!! HBG saves it once again, but she’s in a lot of pain!

Drake: EVISCERATION!!!! HEART BREAK GAL NAILS HIM WITH A THE EVISCERATION!!! SHE’S STILL ALIVE AND KICKING!! SHE REALIZES RIPLEY ISN’T THE LEGAL MAN AS SHE DRAGS CAMERON BACK ONTO DAVIDSON FOR THE COVER!!
Referee: ONE!!!!!!!!……… TWO!!!!!!!!!!!………… THREE!!
Pierre: AND DAVIDSON WITH A SHOULDER UP!! TOO MUCH TIME WASTED AS DAVIDSON GETS A SHOULDER UP! HBG was hoping that would be enough to end this, but The High Rollerz refuse to die! They absolutely refuse to die! HBG knows they’re so close to finishing this off and she has no choice but to keep going as she targets David Davidson, dragging him up! Using every last ounce of strength to bring Davidson to a vertical base! He’s taken so much damage in this contest! HBG’s barely able to stand herself! She’s got him! EVISCERATION!!!! NO–DAVIDSON’S FIGHTING IT! HE’S KEEPING HER UP ON HIS SHOULDERS!! HE CHARGES!! DAVIDSON DROPS HBG TO THE OUTSIDE WITH A MODIFIED SHEER DROP POWERBOMB!!! HBG LANDING BADLY ON THE OUTSIDE AS DAVIDSON SAVES HIMSELF!! He drops down in pain, trying to recuperate! Cameron may be all on her own here! She and Ripley now stirring as they struggle to get back up!
Drake: This is bad, Pierre… They’re not gonna win this at this rate… Cam isn’t gonna be able to….
(Drake is heard taking off his headset)
Pierre: Wait, what? What are you doing? Drake? DRAKE!
(Drake cautiously makes his way around the Showdown Announce Table, checking on HBG for a moment before looking up at the ring)
Pierre: Drake just left our table as he… I don’t know what he’s doing! Drake! You can’t do that!
(Drake searches underneath the ring, pulling out a steel chair)
Pierre: What on Earth is he thinking?! DRAKE! This isn’t gonna end well! Drake slides the chair into the ring, near Cameron! HE’S CLIMBING THE APRON! WHAT IS HE–HE’S GETTING THE REFEREE’S ATTENTION! Drake is arguing with the Official from the apron as Cameron gets to her feet first! She nails Ripley with multiple clubbing shots before he can get up! Cameron sees the chair! She turns her attention to Drake and the Official! Cameron looks absolutely furious as she’s on her feet, pushing the Referee out of the way and getting in the face of Drake!
Cameron (no microphone): GET THE HELL OUT OF HERE! WHO THE HELL DO YOU THINK YOU ARE?! GET THE HELL OUT!
Drake (no microphone): USE THE CHAIR! I DISTRACTED HIM! USE IT! USE THE CHAIR, YOU STUPID BI–
Pierre: DAVID DAVIDSON IN FROM BEHIND WITH A WAIST LOCK AS HE FORCES CAMERON FORWARD AS SHE CRACKS SKULLS WITH DRAKE!!! DAVIDSON WITH A ROLL UP!!!
Referee: ONE!!!!!!!!……… TWO!!!!!!!!!…….. THREE!!!!!!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“Becoming The Bull” by Atreyu plays all throughout the Stade Velodrome as Cameron Ella Ava kicks out a second too late, realizing what just happened)
Announcer: The Winners of this contest by pinfall….. AND STTTTTIIIIIILLLLLL EAW UNIFIED TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS….. JACK RIPLEY AND DAVID DAVIDSON…. THE HIIIIIIIIIIIIGGGGGGHHHHHHHH ROLLERZ!!!!
Pierre: I can’t believe it! I absolutely cannot believe it! What on EARTH was he thinking?! Drake Jaeger just got himself involved in this contest out of the damn blue, presumably attempting to help Di Consentes! WHY?!
(A bloodied and furious Cameron Ella Ava argues with Drake Jaeger in the ring while a confused Heart Break Gal sees what happened from the outside)
Pierre: Unbelievable! I’m sorry, but he had no right to get himself involved! Even if HBG is a close friend of his! He had no right!
(The High Rollerz celebrate with their Unified Tag Team Championships on the outside as HBG enters the ring, trying to talk to Cameron and Drake while the two continue to argue)
Pierre: Cameron looks like she’s had enough as she storms off! She’s bloodied and battered and rightfully enraged by what happened at the end there! She had a chance to keep the momentum in their favor and win this match and it all went down the drain! All of their effort all for naught!
(A furious Cameron is shown ripping off her wrist tape on her way up the ramp while Drake Jaeger tries to explain himself to HBG)
Pierre: HBG looks just as much in disbelief at what he did! There’s no excuse!
(An angry Heart Break Gal pushes Drake down as Drake looks up at her in shock)
HBG (no microphone): YOU DON’T EVER GET INVOLVED IN MY BUSINESS! DON’T YOU EVER GET INVOLVED IN MY DAMN MATCHES! STAY OUT OF IT!
(HBG storms off as a stunned Drake looks on)
Pierre: A hard-fought contest between both teams, it’s just a shame it ended the way it did, and I hope Drake just realized why it was such poor judgment on his part. Not even HBG was willing to defend him for those actions. Nonetheless, The High Rollerz pull it off and walk out of here STILL the Unified Tag Team–
(An enraged Drake rolls to the outside, pacing around)
Pierre: Drake, just sit down! Just–
Drake (no microphone): SHUT THE F*CK UP, PIERRE! SHUT UP! I….
(Drake shakes his head and storms off, away from the Showdown Announce Table as the camera fades to intermission)

Ring Announcer: Ladies and Gentlemen, this next contest is scheduled for one fall and is your main event of the evening! AND IT IS FOR THE 2018 KING OF ELITE CROWN!!
(“Born Too Late” – Saint Vitus plays as Darkane makes his way through the curtain to a MASSIVE roar from the crowd. He slowly makes his way down to the ring, soaking in the atmosphere in the arena.)
Ring Announcer: Introducing first from New Orleans, Louisiana, weighing in tonight at TWO HUNDRED AND FORTY POUNDS!!! HE IS THE HARDCORE CHAMPION!!! “THE GRAVEWORM”!!!!… DAAAAAARRRKKKAAAANNNNEEE!!!!
Stew: IT’S TIME! DYNASTY’S TIME! IS THERE ANYONE BETTER IN THIS MATCH THAN THIS MAN? IS THERE ANYONE ON A BIGGER ROLL THAT THIS MAN? PIERRE, KAWAJAI – YOU’RE LOOKING AT HIM! YOU’RE LOOKING AT THE NEXT KING OF ELITE!!
Pierre: I feel like we’re forced to listen to this every year – I mean, when’s the last time Dynasty has won this tournament? Liam Catterson? I think that shows how well Dynasty fairs in this match, Stew. If you guys were guaranteed a representative in this match, lord knows Dynasty wouldn’t be there.
(“Oblivion” – 30 Seconds To Mars hits as Keelan Cetinich makes his way out in front of the thousands in attendance to an ERUPTION of cheers.)
Ring Announcer: Introducing his first opponent from Gold Coast, Australia, weighing in tonight at TWO HUNDRED AND TEN POUNDS!!… HE IS “THE KILLER”!!!! KEELAN CEEEEETTIIINNNIIICCCHH!!!!
Kawajai: He’s the man that came so close to dethroning Jamie O’Hara at Road to Redemption, putting up a greater battle than I believe that anyone thought that he would. He could have been challenging for that championship tonight if he were able to beat Lars Grier at Shock Value, but tonight he has the chance to call himself King. The King of Elite.
Stew: Disappointments don’t become kings, Kawajai.
(“I Hope You Suffer” – AFI hits as Theron Nikolas makes his way through the curtain to an EXPLOSION of cheers from the thousands in attendance. He’s wearing his usual black trench coat and plague doctor mask; his umbrella resting on his shoulder which he uses to point down to the ring.)
Ring Announcer: Introducing their opponent from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, weighing in tonight at ONE HUNDRED AND NINETY POUNDS!! THERON NIIIIIIKKKKOOOOLLLLAAAAASSS!!!!
Pierre: Now, here comes the favourite! The man that has constantly come so close to grasping onto that EAW World Championship; the man that wasn’t looked upon as nothing until he forced the world to take notice at Pain for Pride. We have been waiting for this match to break through that last glass ceiling, and tonight he has no bigger opportunity.
Stew: And like he always does – he’s going to choke. You call this man the favourite, Pierre? You want to bring up Dynasty’s track record in recent history when it comes to the King of Elite tournament? This man doesn’t compare to Darkane and neither does Keelan – Darkane’s a CHAMPION; something that neither Keelan or Theron have ever been. Darkane knows how to get the job done in matches like this – we can’t say the same about the other two, can we?
(Theron enters the ring and takes off his entrance attire; all three men stand in their respective corners as the referee calls for the bell.)
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Stew: All three men’s eyes are scouting the situation; our main event is officially underway. Darkane against Theron Nikolas against Keelan Cetinich – which man walks out of this arena tonight as a King? But, more importantly right now – which man makes the first move? And it’s Keelan! Keelan shooting across the ring and meets Darkane; both men trading shots, but Keelan is getting the better of it! Keelan pushing Darkane back into the corner as Theron leans back into his corner and just watches. Keelan with a stiff chop to the chest of Darkane before looking back over his shoulder at Theron, who signals to Keelan that he has no intention of stopping him. Keelan fires with a chop, but this time Darkane blocks it and turns the tide! Keelan trapped in the corner AS DARKANE FIRES WITH A BRUTAL CHOP OF HIS OWN! OH MY GOD, I FELT THAT ONE MYSELF! Keelan stumbling out of the corner and falls down to his hands and knees; it had to feel like his chest was caving in on itself. A sick smile crossing the face of Darkane as he looks Theron, who has now kicked his feet up to the top rope; he’s completely content on watching. Darkane lining Keelan up! You don’t think that he’s looking for it already? DARKANE HITS THE ROPES!! DEVIL MAY CRY!! KILLER-KO!!!!!!! DARKANE LOOKED TO TAKE KEELAN OUT EARLY AND MAY HAVE JUST RAN STRAIGHT INTO HIS OWN DEMISE!! KEELAN SHOOTS BACK TO HIS FEET–
Pierre: SUPERKICK!! THERON JUST COMPLETELY FLOORED KEELAN WITH A SUPERKICK!! KEELAN’S LEGS GO LIMP AS HE DROPS DOWN TO THE CANVAS!! YES!! THERON SHOOTS INTO THE COVER ON DARKANE!!
ONE!!… TWO!!… T-KICKOUT!!
Stew: Darkane kicks out!
Pierre: He kicks out, but Theron is in the box seat early. Theron gets back to his feet as both Darkane and Keelan stir. Theron seems a lot more interested in this match now; Keelan is back to a knee and Theron meets him with a HARD shoot kick to the chest. Darkane’s back to a knee now and Theron meets him with a shoot kick for him too. Theron fires at the chest of Keelan! Another for Darkane! Another for Keelan! Darkane! Keelan! Darkane! Keelan! Theron continues to fire with these vicious kicks to both of his opponent; Theron takes a step back AND ALMOST TAKES KEELAN’S HEAD OFF WITH A ROUNDHOUSE! NO, KEELAN DUCKS UNDERNEATH AND LOCKS THE WAIST! THERON USES HIS LEG TO BLOCK THE ATTEMPTED GERMAN SUPLEX BEFORE COMPLETING THE STANDING SWITCH! GERMAN SUPLEX TO KEELAN! KEELAN LANDS ON HIS FEET! THERON SHOOTS BACK TO HIS FEET, BUT KEELAN MEETS HIM WITH A JUMPING KNEE! THERON’S ROCKED, BACKING UP AGAINST THE ROPES! AND KEELAN SENDS HIM UP AND OVER TO THE OUTSIDE WITH A CLOTHESLINE!
Kawajai: Keelan not allowing Theron to stamp his authority early here, but he still doesn’t look finished. Keelan shoots across the ring, picking up a truck load of speed as he hits the ropes! KEELAN HAS THERON IN HIS SIGHTS – BUT DARKANE!! DARKANE ALMOST TAKES HIS HEAD OFF WITH A LARIAT!! AND DARKANE FOLLOWS UP, HOVERING OVER HIM WITH BRUTAL CLOSED FIST SHOTS TO THE FACE, WITH KEELAN BARELY ABLE TO DEFEND HIMSELF MUCH LESS RETALIATE! Darkane follows up, hitting a JUMPING STOMP to the face causing Keelan to roll around holding the bridge of his perhaps broken nose. Darkane runs the ropes, and follows up with a KNEE DROP to the head of Keelan! Now he spots Theron climbing back up to the apron – AND BUMPS HIM OFF THE APRON BACK DOWN TO THE RINGSIDE FLOOR WITH A RUNNING ELBOW TO THE FACE!
Stew-O: Dynasty’s very best in Darkane is refusing to take any prisoners! And now he’s got a chance to zero in back on Keelan who’s definitely worse for wear following that unmitigated attack. Keelan’s back up to one knee, and Darkane hits a brutal kick to the arm! He waits for Keelan to try to recover… Keelan with a left blow to the ribs! Darkane follows up with a headbutt! That sends Keelan back into the ropes, and Darkane comes right after him, only to eat another stiff body shot! That one hurt! Darkane’s eating more body shots from Keelan, and he’s sent into the ropes with and Irish whip — only to follow him up with a RUNNING KNEE TO THE MIDSECTION! This leaves Darkane seated on the middle rope, BUT LOOK AT THERON, HE’S BACK ON THE RING APRON, AND SLINGSHOTS HIMSELF OVER THE ROPES – AND DARKANE – FOR THE SLINGSHOT CLOTHESLINE ONTO KEELAN! AND FOLLOWS UP WITH THE COVER!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWWWWWWW-
Pierre: DARKANE WITH A RUNNING ELBOW! Theron spots it coming a mile away, and turns like a top so that Darkane only nails the chest of Keelan, and Theron follows up with SUPERKICK!!! NO, FAKES DARKANE OUT, AND HITS A KICK TO THE KNEE! FOLLOWS UP WITH A SNAP DDT! Now a cover.
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!!! TWWWWWW-
Stew-O: Darkane shoots the shoulder up. That was a nice little trick by Theron, but it’s going to take more than that to keep a man like Darkane down. We’re talking about someone who’s had victories over World Champions, the Season 11 Rookie of the Year, the new face of Hardcore!
Pierre: We’ll see how far those accolades take him, in my view Theron was robbed for Rookie of the Year! No one has done as much as he has in as short amount of time! Theron’s got Darkane cornered by the turnbuckle now, and he’s got Darkane hoisted up in a seated position on the top turnbuckle, before hammering away a couple of closed fist shots. Now he turns back to Keelan – BUT KEELAN COMES RIGHT AFTER HIM LOOKING FOR A RUNNING ATTACK! THERON SWEEPS HIM ONTO HIS BACK BY BOTH LEGS HOWEVER, AND SLINGSHOTS KEELAN INTO DARKANE WHO’S SEATED ON THE TOP TURNBUCKLE! BUT KEELAN LANDS ON THE MIDDLE ROPE, AND DARKANE CATCHES HIM ON THE TOP ROPE FOR A BEAR HUG, PERHAPS LOOKING TO GO FOR SOMETHING EVEN MORE LETHAL…. OHHHH!!! THERON CHARGES UP THE CORNER AND HITS A LUNGBLOWER ON KEELAN, TAKING BOTH KEELAN AND DARKANE DOWN, AND BREAKING KEELAN PRACTICALLY IN HALF!!!
( Keelan rolls out of the ring. We get a replay of Keelan being crushed between Darkane falling on top of him, and having the knees of Theron Nikolas driven into his kidneys. )
Kawajai: Rough break for Voltage’s representative, but on instinct Keelan’s able to make the best of a bad situation by making sure he gets the hell out of dodge. OH NO, HERE COMES THERON, RUSHING OUT OF THE RING AND GOING RIGHT AFTER KEELAN AGAIN, AND HE DELIVERS A WHEELBARROW LUNGBLOWER!!!! DAMN IT NO, KEELAN’S BACK COULD VERY WELL BE BROKEN AFTER THAT! HE’S GOT SEARING PAIN SHOOTING UP AND DOWN HIS SPINE, AND IS YELLING OUT IN AGONY!
Stew-O: Theron rushes back in the ring and charges at a recovering Darkane with a BIG BOOT! DARKANE STUMBLES INTO THE ROPES, BUT FIRES BACK WITH A PENDULUM LARIAT! THERON DUCKS UNDER THE ONCOMING ARM AND GRABS HIM FROM BEHIND FOR THE STRAIGHT JACKET… INTO THE TOUCH OF HEROINE!!!! RAINMAKER LARIAT!!!!! DARKANE CUTS OFF THE ONCOMING ARM WITH A BOOT! THERON HOLDS THE HURT ARM, BUT FIRES BACK WITH A SPIN KICK TO THE GUT! Theron runs the nearest perpendicular ropes, and RUSHES BACK WITH A STANDING MUSHROOM STOMP TO THE KNEELED OVER DARKANE — BUT DARKANE CATCHES HIM ON HIS SHOULDERS, AND PLANTS HIM INTO THE MAT WITH A STEAMROLLER SLAM! Darkane with a hook of the leg!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWWWWWWW-
Pierre: Theron, OF COURSE, kicks out! Theron’s rushing out of the ring in tactical retreat, but Darkane tries to keep him in by the leg! Theron wrestles the boot away, forcing Darkane to change targets and focus on Keelan who’s using the barricade and looking to loosen up his back, which is most likely tensed up after receiving the kind of punishment it did earlier. DARKANE CHARGES AT KEELAN, AND DELIVERS A RUNNING STINGER SPLASH INTO KEELAN, INTO THE BARRICADE! KEELAN COLLAPSES TO A KNEE, AND DARKANE CHARGES ACROSS RINGSIDE RIGHT IN FRONT OF US TO GRAB THERON BY THE NAPE OF THE NECK, AND FLING HIS BODY INTO THE BARRICADE! DARKANE ISN’T FINISHED, HE DRAGS THERON UP FROM THE FLOOR AND CHARGES ACROSS RINGSIDE WITH HIS OPPONENT… SENDING HIM FULL FORCE INTO THE STEEL RING STAIRS!!! NO! THERON LEAPS ONTO THEM, AND HITS A BACK KICK INTO THE FACE OF DARKANE!
Kawajai: Theron Nikolas is back up to the apron, watching his opponent now and waiting for the right moment… NOW HE CHARGES ON THE APRON AND HITS A CHARGING PENALTY KICK TO THE FACE OF DARKANE!!! BUT DARKANE CATCHES THE BOOT, AND YANKS HIS LEG BACKWARDS SENDING THERON DOWN, HITTING THE RING APRON FACE FIRST! YIKES WHAT A DISGUSTING THUD! Theron plops down to the ringside floor from the apron, and Darkane drags him up from the floor to set his sights back over to the steel steps! OH MAN!!!! DARKANE SENDS THERON HEAD FIRST INTO THE STEEL STEPS, AND THERON HITS THE STEPS SO HARD HE BOUNCES OVER THEM AND CRASHES DOWN TO THE OTHER SIDE, TURNED COMPLETELY INSIDE OUT! THAT MAY HAVE BEEN ONE OF THE MORE BRUTAL COLLISIONS I’VE SEEN ANYONE MAKE WITH THE STEEL RING STAIRS! I HOPE TO GOD THERON ISN’T SEVERELY INJURED!
Stew-O: Yeah, it’d be a real “shame” if Theron were unable to continue!
Pierre: Both of Darkane’s opponents are badly hurt in some capacity, further proving that this guy is a deplorable monster, unfit to compete in an Elite environment! Darkane drags the steel steps out of place, hoisting them over his head before slipping them through the ropes and into the ring. I shudder to think what a guy like this plans on doing with a weapon as dangerous as that. Darkane goes back on the hunt, spotting Theron trying desperately to recover down at the bottom of the ramp – but here comes Keelan! Keelan rushes over to Darkane and meets him with a flurry of closed fists! Darkane drops Theron and engages in a hockey style fist fight with bombs being thrown a mile a minute! BUT DARKANE SLINGS HIS SHOULDER INTO THE MIDSECTION AND DRILLS KEELAN SPINE FIRST INTO THE APRON, WHICH MAY HAVE VERY WELL COMPLETELY DRAINED HIM OF ANY FERVOR TO FIGHT THAT HE HAD!
Stew-O: OH YEAH! AND NOW DARKANE THROWS KEELAN DOWN TO THE RAMP LIKE THE DOG HE IS, AND KING DARKANE DRAGS BOTH OF HIS INFERIOR SUBJECTS UP… LOOKING FOR A DOUBLE SUPLEX ONTO THE RAMP!!!
Kawajai: NO DICE, STEW! THERON AND KEELAN BATTLE BACK WITH A TAG TEAM VERTICAL SUPLEX, SENDING DARKANE INTO THE CONCRETE FLOOR! The three men all vying to become the 2018 King Of Elite lay there on the ramp with tens of thousands watching on here in the Velodrome in beautiful Marseille, France. It’s been a hell of a night, and an incredible atmosphere thanks to these passionate EAW Universe members, and it seems like there’s a three way split among this crowd as to who they want to see ascend to royalty! It’s a race between Keelan and Theron back to their feet, with Darkane dragging behind … but it looks like KEELAN WILL EXPLODE FROM OUT OF THE GATE WITH A JUMPING BICYCLE KICK, SENDING THERON FLYING OVER THE RAMP-SIDE BARRICADE! Keelan orders the fans watching on to move out of the way, while Theron collapses into the audience and uses the nearest chairs he can find to help him recover…. AND KEELAN MAKES A RUNNING START, BEFORE SPRINTING OVER THE BARRICADE AND TAKING THERON DOWN WITH A SOARING CROSSBODY!!!! AND FOR TEAM VOLTAGE, WE ARE BACK IN BUSINESS!
( Keelan pulls himself up using the chairs, and sits in one to stretch himself out and recover. Then, he pulls Theron up from the floor. )
Pierre: That disrespectful Voltage troglodyte unceremoniously dumps Theron back to ringside, and sends Theron back into the ring before following him in and going for a cover!
Pierre: KEELAN STOPS HIS OWN PIN AND TAKES DARKANE OFF THE APRON WITH A LOW DROPKICK! BOTH BOOTS SMACKING OFF THE FACE! As Stew likes to say, that was a “spit-knocking” dropkick, props to Keelan for such an effective kick! However Darkane refuses to stay down for long, and he’s already trying to drag himself back onto the apron, so Keelan decides to join him there and beat down a flurry of punches into the Dynasty Elitist… AND HE HITS AN OVER-THE-ROPES ENZUIGIRI ONTO AN ONCOMING THERON! THIS SENDS HIM BACK DOWN IN THE RING! Keelan and Darkane both drop off the apron, BUT DARKANE SLINGS KEELAN OVER HIS SHOULDER ONCE AGAIN, LOOKING TO DRIVE HIM BY THE BAD BACK INTO THE RING APRON…. BUT KEELAN MANAGES TO GET HIS FOOTING BEHIND DARKANE, AND DELIVERS A WHEELBARROW SUPLEX INTO THE APRON, CRACKING THE BACK OF DARKANE’S HEAD OFF THE SHARP PART OF THE APRON!!!! DEAR GOD DYNASTY FANS, YOUR GUY IS DEAD! HE IS DEAD, FRED!
Stew-O: WE MIGHT NEED A DOCTOR OUT HERE! OUR ROSTER IS ALREADY THINNING OUT AS IT IS, WE CAN’T LOSE DARKANE DAMN IT!
Kawajai: Darkane’s sitting there looking just out of it after that cringe inducing thud, which was his head banging off of the ring apron! And now Keelan returns into the ring, and ducks an oncoming clothesline before charging up a nearby turnbuckle and delivering DEATH FROM ABOVE!!! KEELAN DELIVERS IT PERFECTLY, HOWEVER THE LANDING WAS A BIT TOO ABRASIVE FOR HIS BACK, WHICH IS KEEPING HIM FROM IMMEDIATELY COVERING HIS OPPONENT! KEELAN HOLDS THE SMALL OF HIS SORE BACK, AND DRAGS HIMSELF OVER THERON EVENTUALLY TO GET THE COVER!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
Pierre: THERON KICKS OUT! AS EXPECTED FROM OUR FEARLESS SOON-TO-BE LEADER! Let’s face it, Keelan’s going to the well too many times and his back is in no condition for any of it! Keelan drags himself up and is attempting to hoist Theron onto his shoulders, but to no surprise his back is hindering his ability to do even that! Keelan’s looking for DEAD BY DAYLIGHT…. BUT BY THE TIME HE CAN GET THERON ONTO HIS SHOULDERS, THERON HAMMERS AWAY ELBOWS TO THE SIDE OF THE HEAD! Keelan stumbles over to the ropes, and Theron charges right behind him LOOKING FOR ANOTHER DOUBLE KNEE LUNGBLOWER! OH THAT WOULD HAVE KILLED HIM, BUT KEELAN USES THE ROPES TO STAND HIS GROUND AS THERON FALLS BACK TO THE MAT! NOW KEELAN SPRINGS ONTO THE APRON, AND ATTEMPTS A SPRINGBOARD 450 SPLASH — BUT THERON KIPS UP, AND HITS A DROPKICK INTO THE ROPES, WHICH CAUSES KEELAN TO DROP ONTO THE ROPES GUT FIRST! AND THERON NIKOLAS BLASTS HIM WITH A SUPERKICK TO THE SIDE OF THE HEAD OF THE DRAPED OVER KEELAN! THAT SENDS KEELAN COLLAPSING TO RINGSIDE! IN COMES DARKANE TO TURN THERON NIKOLAS AROUND – WHAM! THERON BLASTS HIM WITH A SUPERKICK! YES! OH YES! OHHHH YESSSSSSS!!!!
Stew-O: DON’T SOIL YOURSELF, PIERRE. HE DIDN’T EVEN GET ALL OF IT! REGARDLESS, THERON RUNS THE ROPES, WITH HIS SIGHTS AIMED AT A RECOVERING KEELAN, AND THERON DELIVERS A TOPE SUICIDA INTO A HURRICANRANA DRIVER ON KEELAN, ABSOLUTELY DRILLING HIM PILEDRIVER-STYLE INTO THE RINGSIDE FLOOR!!! Credit to where credit is due, that was a tremendous move by Theron Nikolas, and there’s no worse way to pile on a bad back than by attacking the neck, I won’t be surprised if Keelan spends the rest of this match completely paralyzed!
Pierre: Theron refuses to let Keelan off easily, he sends Keelan back into the ring presumably to inflict more damage, and Keelan’s only source of support is by using the corner to help him rise. Now he sees Darkane in another corner, and THERON SPRINTS AT DARKANE FOR A RUNNING EUROPEAN UPPERCUT TO THE CORNERED DARKANE! HE SPRINTS BACK AT KEELAN, RUNNING EUROPEAN UPPERCUT ON KEELAN! SPRINTS BACK TO DARKANE FOR ANOTHER RUNNING ATTACK, BUT DARKANE DODGES IT AND CHARGES TOWARDS KEELAN WITH A STINGER SPLASH! NOW THERON AND DARKANE SPRINT TOWARDS EACH OTHER AT THE SAME TIME — NOOOOOOO!!! DARKANE BLASTS HIM WITH THE YAKUZA KICK, SENDING THERON FLYING ACROSS THE RING AND INTO THE TURNBUCKLE CORNER!!! THE MOMENTUM TAKES THERON UP TO HIS FEET, AND DARKANE PLANTS HIM WITH A STINGER SPLASH! NOW DARKANE SENDS THERON INTO THE CORNERED KEELAN, AND HE DELIVERS A DOUBLE STINGER SPLASH!!!!
Kawajai: KEELAN SHOVES THERON INTO DARKANE AHEAD OF TIME, AND DARKANE’S MOMENTUM FOR THE FULL BODY PRESS TURNS THERON INSIDE OUT! BUT KEELAN EXPLODES WITH A RUNNING SLINGBLADE, TAKING DARKANE DOWN!!! AND KEELAN AGAIN TAKES FAR TOO MUCH TIME IN GETTING THE COVER, AND THAT BAD BACK OF HIS IS COMING INTO PLAY IN CRITICAL MOMENTS, BUT HE’S STILL ABLE TO WILL HIMSELF OVER TO A LATERAL PRESS!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
Stew-O: THE THREE COMBATANTS ARE ALL WILLING THEMSELVES BACK UP, BUT KEELAN IS THE FIRST TO GET THE ADVANTAGE, AND HE IMMEDIATELY BRINGS DARKANE DOWN TO THE MAT WITH THE SCISSORED ARMBAR!!! DEATH ROW IS LOCKED IN ON DARKANE, NOWHERE FOR HIM TO GO IN THE CENTER OF THE RING! TO MY RECOLLECTION I HAVE NEVER SEEN DARKANE SUBMIT, AND I’LL BE DAMNED IF TONIGHT’S THE FIRST NIGHT I SEE IT HAPPEN! KEELAN IS REARING BACK AS MUCH AS HE CAN ON THAT HOLD, TRYING TO BREAK THE MAN’S ARM, AND YOU CAN UNDERSTAND WHY – KEELAN IS FIGHTING FOR THE BIGGEST PRIZE OF HIS CAREER! A WIN LIFE THIS IS LIFE CHANGING, IT GIVES YOU THE OPPORTUNITY TO REROUTE YOUR ENTIRE DESTINY AND ACHIEVE MORE IN YOUR CAREER THAN YOU EVER WOULD HAVE! IT’S PUT THE WIND IN THE SAILS OF THE LIKES OF MAK AND ROBBIE V, IT’S PROPELLED ELITISTS LIKE TIBERIUS JONES AND LANNISTER! JUST IMAGINE WHAT IT WILL DO FOR KEELAN SHOULD HE BRING HIS OPPONENT TO THE LIMIT!?
Pierre: THERON FROM OUT OF NOWHERE WITH A STANDING MUSHROOM STOMP ONTO BOTH MEN, BREAKING UP THE SUBMISSION HOLD! Keelan and Theron recover at the same rate, and Keelan blasts Theron with a big time right hand! Theron responds with a European uppercut! Keelan responds with a right – but is cut off with a kick to the quadriceps! And now a HEADBUTT volleys Keelan over to Darkane, who sends a right hand volleying Keelan back over to Theron! A sluggish Keelan manages to block a shot from Theron, and respond with a right hand! Another show! A third! And a BIG TIME UPPERCUT! He turns back to Darkane, ANOTHER MAJOR UPPERCUT! Darkane stumbles over near the corner, and Keelan charges at him! DARKANE MOVES OUT OF THE WAY AS KEELAN HITS THE CORNER, STOPPING HIMSELF BEFORE IMPACT – DEVIL!!!!!!!! MAY!!!!!!!!!! CRY!!!!!!!!!!!!! BRUTAL SPEAR INTO KEELAN’S INJURED BACK!!!!!!!!!
Stew-O: OH MY GOD!!!!! THAT WAS SUCH A BRUTAL SPEAR, KEELAN LOOKS LIKE HE GOT FOLDED IN HALF, BACKWARDS, LIKE AN ACCORDION!!!! HE’S IN FRONT OF THE TURNBUCKLE, AND DARKANE’S ABOUT TO DRAG HIM OUT OF IT FOR THE FINISHING COVER —
Kawajai: RUNNING FRONT DROPKICK FROM THERON!!! THAT SENDS DARKANE FLYING INTO KEELAN, AND KEELAN CRASHING INTO THE METAL RINGPOST AND LANDING ON THE OUTSIDE!!! THERON HOOKS DARKANE FROM BEHIND, AND IS GOING FOR THE TOUCH OF HEROINE!!!! RAINMAKER LARIAT ON DARKANE!!!!!
Stew-O: DARKANE’S FIGHTING IT, HE’S FIGHTING IT WITH EVERYTHING HE HAS, REFUSING TO BE TURNED AROUND – DARKANE FIRES BACK WITH AN ELBOW TO THE SIDE OF THE JAW!! ANOTHER!! ANOTHER!! DARKANE DOING EVERYTHING HE CAN TO GET OUT OF THIS POSITION!! ANOTHER ELBOW!! THERON DROPS DOWN TO A KNEE, BUT HE WILL NOT RELEASE THAT WRIST!! DARKANE TRYING TO BREAK THE GRIP!! DARKANE DRIVES HIS KNEE INTO THE SIDE OF THERON’S HEAD!! TOUCH OF HEROINE!!!!!! THERON FIGHTS THROUGH AND ALMOST TAKES DARKANE’S HEAD OFF OF HIS SHOULDERS!! DARKANE WAS ALMOST FOLDED LIKE A LAWN CHAIR AS THERON FALLS INTO THE COVER!!!!
ONEEEEEE!!!!! TWOOOOOOOOO!!!!!! THREEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!
Stew-O: NO – NO, DARKANE KICKED OUT!!!! DARKANE POPPED HIS SHOULDER OFF THE CANVAS AT THE LAST FREAKING SECOND!!
Pierre: THERON CAN’T LET IT SLOW HIM DOWN!! AND I DON’T THINK THAT HE’S GOING TO ALLOW IT TO DO SO!!
( Theron eyes the steel ring steps that are sitting in the far corner of the ring, and he drags the steps over to Darkane before laying Darkane’s torso on top of it. )
Pierre: THERON IS GOING FOR THE DEATH BLOW, HE’S SCALING THE TOP TURNBUCKLE AND WATCHES AN UNSUSPECTING DARKANE FROM ABOVE!!!!! NO, DARKANE’S STILL GOT ENOUGH LEFT TO MEET THERON!! DARKANE WITH A HARD RIGHT HAND!! A FOREARM!! DARKANE’S MAKING HIS WAY UP TO THE MIDDLE ROPE!! DARKANE WITH A HEADBUTT!!! THERON IS STUNNED!!! DARKANE PULLS THERON IN!! HE’S NOT LOOKING TO SEND BOTH HIMSELF AND THERON INTO THOSE STEEL STEPS, IS HE?! DARKANE POWERS THERON UP VERTICAL!!! NO, DON’T DO IT!!! YES!!! THERON FIRES WITH A KNEE TO THE TOP OF THE HEAD!!! ANOTHER!!! THERON’S ABLE TO FIGHT BACK DOWN!! THERON WITH A HEADBUTT!! A SECOND!! A THIRD!! A FOURTH!! THERON WILL NOT STOP!! NOT UNTIL DARKANE GOES DOWN!!! AND HE DOES!!!!! DARKANE CRASHES BACK FIRST INTO THOSE STEEL STEPS BELOW!!! OH MY GOD!!! HAIL TO THE KING!!!!!!!! DIVING DOUBLE FOOT STOMP!!!! DRIVING DARKANE HEAD FIRST INTO THE STEEL STEPS!!!! HAIL TO THE KING HITS THE MARK, DECIMATING DARKANE!!!! THERE’S A COVER!
Kawajai: KEELAN’S TRYING TO DRAG HIMSELF BACK ONTO THE RING!!…
( DING! DING! DING! )
( “I Hope You Suffer” – AFI blasts through the speakers as all three men remains down in the ring before slowly Theron drags himself back to his feet and has his arm raised by the official.)
Ring Announcer: HERE IS YOUR WINNER AND THE 2018 KING OF ELITE…. THEEEEROOOOOOOOOOOON NIKOLAAAAAAAAAAS!!!!
Stew-O: I’LL BE DAMNED, HE’S DONE IT! THERON NIKOLAS HAS DONE IT TONIGHT AT KING OF ELITE AND HAS BECOME THE KING OF ELITE WITH THIS ENTIRE CROWD BEHIND HIM!!! IT WAS GUT CHECK TIME, AND DESPITE A FANTASTIC PERFORMANCE FROM ALL THREE MEN, THERON RISES FROM THIS MATCH TO BE THE TRUE KING OF ELITE!!
Kawajai: I cannot believe this! I can’t believe you sounding overjoyed that this guy from that B show just beat yours AND my representative, two years in a row Showdown hogs up the King Of Elite crown, I just, damn it I HATE YOU THERON!!
Pierre: AT LEAST SOMEBODY IS UNBIASED! HALLELUJAH, SHOWDOWN DOES IT AGAIN! DYNASTY, YOU TRIED. VOLTAGE, YOU SUCK. BUT SHOWDOWN DOES WHAT SHOWDOWN DOES BEST, AND THAT’S RISE ABOVE EVERY SINGLE CHALLENGE! THERON HAS PROVEN WHY HE IS THE TRUE 2018 ROOKIE OF THE YEAR!
(“I Hope You Suffer” continues to play as Theron Nikolas is getting the robe placed on him as the crowd continues their thunderous applause for him. )
Kawajai: I’ve had it with this show tonight!
Stew: And this is the scene we leave you with, that’s all the time we have left here for King of Elite 2018, be sure to tune into to the weekly shows this week for the aftermath of this event! Goodnight folks signing off for the first Free Per View of 2018!
( Theron is walking his way to the stage, more than half way up the long ramp with his sights set on the throne that awaits him… until the lights immediately cut out in the stadium. )
( A moment passes. )
( The lights do not return… instead, a spotlight shines on the throne, where we see Ares Vendetta sitting comfortably on Theron’s throne with his feet up, wearing a devilish grin on his face. )
Pierre: ARES VENDETTA!
( Theron has a spotlight on him now, with the rest of the arena in the dark while only Ares and Theron can be seen. Ares Vendetta slowly rises, and the two engage in a chilling stare down while “I Hope You Suffer” continues in the background. This stare down is the last thing we see until the camera fades to black, and the show comes to an eventual close. )
