( EAW Intro plays )
(We’re treated to a black screen, but suddenly a voice comes in)
Voice: ONE MINUTE! ONE MINUTE!
(“For the Glory” by All Good Things erupts from the silence as images begin to flash across the screen)
(We transition into a package featuring Lucas Johnson and Jack Ripley. Highlights of the PURE Championship Contenders tournament are shown. Lucas Johnson is shown collecting pinfalls over each of his opponents in the tournament, as a still image of Jack Ripley and the Pure Championship looms in the background)
(We cut back to a black screen, this time commotion can be heard, murmured voices, impossible to make out. But there’s a sense of impending danger)
Voice: WE HAVE FORTY SECONDS!!
(The screen lights up again, on it are The Liquid Swords. We get a brief history of the feud between Impact and Cameron Ella Ava and what got us to where we are now. As the package fades out we’re shown an image of Impact standing triumphantly over a battered Cameron, with his arm raised)
(Now the voices are becoming louder, tons of them, still not clear but one thing is certain, they’re filled with panic. Cries of terror, wailing out into the black abyss. The one voice that you can make out returns, but is too now frantic)
(Darkane’s path of destruction since winning the Answers World Championship is shown, beside it, Theron Nikolas is shown capturing the King of Elite crown. A collision course. The package ends with the two men standing toe to toe, the Answers World Championship strapped around Darkane’s waist, and Theron Nikolas, eyes on the prize)
(As the package cuts out, we’re once again brought back to silence and darkness, with the exception of the ticking. But suddenly a small, remote beam of light appears and it gives us a glimpse of something. It’s a bomb. The countdown reading… 5)
(The voices return, now in hysteria. Loud and clear. Screaming, crying)
(The main voice returns)
Voice: EVERYBODY OUT!
(The camera continues steady on the bomb as the noise around it once again becomes impossible to decipher)
(The screen lights up in bright pure white as “For The Glory” picks back up. The Operation: Doomsday logo flashes across the screen and the voice of the EAW Narrator comes in)
Narrator: AND NOW… EAW DYNASTY PRESENTS… OPERATION: DOOMSDAY!!!
(The camera zooms inside the arena as a barrage of blue and white pyro begins shooting up from the stage and down from the rafters. We get a panoramic shot of the thousands and thousands in attendance before the camera settles in on the Dynasty commentary table, a smiling Stew-O and Talib Bari)
Stew: WELL, HERE WE ARE PARTNER!! WELCOME ONE AND ALL TO THE DYNASTY EXCLUSIVE MARQUEE EVENT… OPERATION: DOOMSDAY!! You know the deal, Stew-O alongside my broadcast colleague, Talib Bari and partner, as the cliché goes… what a night this is shaping up to be!
Bari: FOUR… COUNT EM FOUR CHAMPIONSHIPS ON THE LINE TONIGHT!! Including both the New Breed Championship as Raven Roberts defends against Ryan Wilson and Lars Grier will be defending his Openweight Championship tonight against Kevin Hunter. C’mon boys! Bring those titles to Dynasty!
Stew: AND IT’S TABLES LADDERS AND CHAIRS IN OUR MAIN EVENT!! The champion Darkane defends against 2018 King of Elite winner, Theron Nikolas… OHH I CAN’T WAIT! BUT SO MUCH BEFORE THAT and to start it all off… THE PURE CHAMPIONSHIP IS ON THE LINE!!
( DING! DING! DING! )
Stephie Love: This opening contest is scheduled for one fall.. and is a PURE RULES match for the EAW PURE CHAMPIONSHIP!!!!!
(The Pure Championship Logo flashes across the screen.)
(“Young and Bitter” by Hot Tag Media begins to play as the crowd gives a mixed reaction. Lucas Johnson steps out onto the stage as a look of confidence washes over him. Albert Hitchman emerges behind him. He then makes his way down to the ring.)
Stephie Love: Introducing first, the challenger from Atlanta, Georgia, weighing 205 pounds…. LUCCCASSSS JOHNNSOONNNNNNN!
Stew: Here comes Lucas Johnson. Lucas won the Pure Championship contender tournament to earn the chance to face Jack Ripley here tonight at Operation Doomsday. You’ve got to give the kid some credit, being able to go all the way against some of Dynasty’s finest talent and go the distance the way he did last week makes him worthy of being here on a stage like this, with a golden opportunity up for grabs!
Talib: You can thank Albert Hitchman for that Stew, Lucas has become a noticeably better performer since Hitchman came into his life and he’s become more confident too! More in your face, more confrontational, in fact check out what took place just yesterday during the official weigh ins for the PURE Championship match!
( RECAP: We get a look at the official weigh in showing a shirtless Jack Ripley and Lucas Johnson coming face to face. Albert Hitchman is there behind Lucas’ back, and Ripley makes a smart comment which causes Johnson to shove Ripley back. Ripley lunges at Johnson — but EAW security & personnel immediately rush in to break the two Elitists up before the recap ends. Return to the ring. )
Stew: These are two young, hot headed athletes who are both arguably on the cusp of entering their respective primes so to speak! But Lucas has got to remember not to let Ripley get in his head, because he can EASILY cost himself this match in a PURE rules environment where classic wrestling traditions are more strict than ever.
( Return to the ring, “Young & Bitter” dies down and Lucas Johnson paces around the ring amped up. )
“ILLEST MUTHAFUCKA ALIVE!!!”
( The entire stage is lit up in gold as “Illest Motherfucker Alive” by Jay-Z and Kanye West begins to play while the crowd erupts with boos. Jack Ripley emerges onto the stage dressed to compete, sporting dark shades with the PURE Championship around his waist. He makes his way down to the ring where he hands the title to the referee.)
Stephie Love: And his opponent, from Las Vegas, Nevada, weighing 202 pounds… HE IS THE PURE CHAMPION… JACK RIPPLEEYYYY!!!!
Stew: Jack Ripley is a proud champion, holding his first singles championship run after he came away with the EAW Hardcore Championship at Territorial Invasion in a shocking encounter — breaking into Ryan Wilson’s match against Johnny Ventura and stealing the gold for himself.
Talib: Not stealing Stew! He EARNED the title with his 24/7 contract, and since then he’s been rewarded with a title more becoming of what Dynasty General Manager Starr Stan wants this brand to represent!
Stew: Certainly so, but Ripley clearly looks down upon many people on the Dynasty dressing room including his opponent this evening. I understand Ripley has a lot of reasons for this massive ego boost, however he’s in a pure rules environment tonight against a gifted collegiate athlete in this sport with an undefeated NCAA career! I would be highly cautious in this setting if I were Jack Ripley!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Stew: This match is underway. Since it is for the PURE Championship, this match is set under a special set of rules. Lucas Johnson is eager to get started. He’s ready to make a name for himself and make up for the struggles that he’s endured recently. He charges at Jack Ripley and Jack stands his ground. They lock up and Jack immediately positions himself to twist Lucas into the corner. Lucas pushes Jack back but Jack hits a quick kick to the midsection. He grabs Lucas and instantly plants him with a DDT! Lucas’ head bounces off the mat. Jack now grabs Lucas at his legs and flips him over and applies a boston crab!
Talib: JACK WRENCHES BACK ON THE BOSTON CRAB AND LUCAS TRIES TO FIGHT OUT OF IT! Lucas crawls towards the ropes and he extends his arm! He reaches them! Jack doesn’t want to release the hold but the referee forces him to. That is Lucas Johnson’s first rope break of the match. He has two more left. Jack stands back and goes to grab Lucas. Lucas is laying next to the ropes as Jack picks him up… AND LUCAS LIFTS UP JACK AND DROPS HIM RIGHT ONTO THE TOP ROPE! JACK’S STOMACH IS CAUGHT ON IT! Lucas now pushes Jack off as he slams and bounces off the apron to the outside of the ring.
Stew: What awareness by Lucas. He’s gained the advantage in this match as he climbs to the top rope. He’s showing how much he wants this championship. Jack gets to his feet… AND LUCAS LEAPS! HE FLIES TO THE OUTSIDE… MOON SAULT! A MOONSAULT TO THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING AS HE CRASHES DIRECTLY INTO THE REIGNING CHAMPION! As both men are laid out at ring side, the referee just reached a count of two. Under PURE rules, the championship can change hands under the event of a count out or a Disqualification here, forcing Jack to avoid having such things occur. Jack is stirring as I’m sure he’s aware of this but Lucas is the first one to his feet. He knees Jack in the midsection before pull him near the ring post. HE SLAMS HIM FACE FIRST INTO IT! JACK ALMOST FALLS DOWN BUT LUCAS CATCHES HIM!
Talib: Lucas throws an open handed slap that rocks him… AND JACK RESPONDS WITH ONE OF HIS OWN! Lucas stumbles but catches himself. HE QUICKLY GRABS JACK RIPLEY… OH GOD! HE SENDS HIM FLYING BEHIND HIM WITH A BELLY TO BELLY SUPLEX AS JACK LANDS HARD ON THE FLOOR! Lucas Johnson has come tonight to win this championship! His determination is on display! The referee reaches a count of six and Lucas rolls into the ring. There’s the count of seven and Jack is running out of time. Lucas is yelling at him to enter the ring! He’s inviting him in as the referee reaches the count of eight. Jack begins to stumble as he reaches the apron and pulls himself just as the referee reaches the count of nine.
Stew: Jack stands up… AND LUCAS RUSHES AT HIM WITH A MONSTROUS CLOTHESLINE THAT SENDS JACK RIGHT BACK OVER THE TOP ROPE! LUCAS SENDS HIM TO THE OUTSIDE AGAIN! Jack stands up in a fit of frustration. He’s absolutely livid. HE RUSHES INTO THE RING AND HIM AND LUCAS FIGHT IT OUT! JACK THROWS A KNEE TO THE RIBS! LUCAS RESPONDS WITH AN OPEN HANDED SLAP! JACK STUMBLES AND HE RESPONDS WITH A PUNCH! LUCAS STUMBLES AND THE REFEREE BEGINS TO YELL AS JACK! THAT WAS A CLOSED FIST!
Talib: The referee is issuing a warning to Jack about using them. This match is not going the way Jack envisioned it. The referee backs up as Lucas and Jack get back at it. This time Jack throws a jab to the midsection of Lucas. JACK GRABS LUCAS NOW AS HE IS ATTEMPTING A BELLY TO BELLY SUPLEX! LUCAS HOLDS HIS GROUND AND HE NOW GRABS JACK! HE KNEES HIM IN THE GUT FORCING JACK TO RELEASE HIS HOLD ON HIM! BELLY TO BELLY SUPLEX BY JOHNSON!
Stew: Jack has been countered by Lucas yet again. Lucas holds off on making any further moves as Jack Ripley pulls himself up with the ropes. Lucas is waiting for his moment to strike… LUCAS COMES AT JACK… OH GOD! SUPER KICK! SUPER KICK BY JACK RIPLEY! YOU’LL FLOAT TOO! HE CONNECTS WITH IT TO A COMPLETELY UNSUSPECTING LUCAS JOHNSON! HE FALLS ON TOP OF HIM FOR THE COVER!
ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! THRRRRRRRRRR-
Talib: IS THAT IT… NO! A KICK OUT! LUCAS JOHNSON KICKS OUT! JACK RIPLEY BEGINS TO YELL AT THE REFEREE AS HE IS IN COMPLETE DISBELIEF AS TO WHAT JUST OCCURRED! Lucas Johnson takes a finishing maneuver from Jack Ripley in that super kick and manages to stay alive. Jack quickly runs to the top rope. He may be thinking of attempting the Believe It Or Not! WILL HE ATTEMPT THE SHOOTING STAR PRESS… NO! LUCAS JUMPS UP AND THROWS HIMSELF AGAINST THE ROPES BREAKING HIS BALANCE! Lucas now pulls himself to the top rope where Jack is. Lucas now throws several elbows into the spine of Jack as he tries to pull him up. LUCAS HAS JACK ON THE TOP ROPE AS HE BRINGS THEM BOTH DOWN! SUPERPLEX!
Stew: BOTH ME PLUMMET AS THE LAND IN THE RING! BOTH ME ARE DOWN AND OUT! Several moments continue to pass as both men slowly stir. Lucas and Jack both struggle to their feet… AND LUCAS SHOWS LIFE! HE EXPLODES AND GETS JACK! FEEL THE PAIN! HE CONNECTS WITH THE RKO! WE COULD HAVE A NEW CHAMPION AS LUCAS MAKES THE COVER!
Stew: COULD IT BE….KICK OUT! JACK SURVIVES AND LUCAS FALLS BACK IN SURPRISE! He thought he was going to be champion right there! Lucas Johnson pulls himself to his feet. This time he is the one going to the top rope! He’s slow to get there but he finally does! HE STANDS AND JACK IS RIGHT BELOW! COULD IT BE?! RED ARROW! CORKSCREW SHOOTING STAR PRESS… NO! MY GOD! JACK ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY AT THE LAST DITCH SECOND AND LUCAS JOHNSON CRASHES HARD!
Talib: If Lucas had hit that, it could’ve been lights out for the champion, but he manages to avoid that risky move by Johnson. Jack pulls himself up as Lucas is doing the same. He gets to Lucas as he’s on one knee and pulls him up. He delivers a precise knife edge chop right to the chest. He has to be careful to avoid that closed fist like he used earlier. HE NOW CONNECTS WITH A EUROPEAN UPPERCUT! He grabs Lucas and irish whips him with extreme force right into the corner! Lucas’ back bounces off the turnbuckles… AND JACK RUSHES FORWARD WITH A GREAT FORCE AND HITS A CLOTHESLINE AS HE PINS LUCAS BETWEEN HIMSELF AS THE CORNER!
Stew: Jack steps back and continues as he delivers several shoulder blocks right into the midsection of Lucas as he is in the corner! He backs away as he runs forward once more… WITH ANOTHER RUNNING CLOTHESLINE! LUCAS STUMBLES FORWARD JUST AS JACK WANTED HIM TO! HE LEAPS AND HITS A HURRICANRANA! HE FOLLOWS IT THROUGH AND INTO A PIN! WHAT A MOVE! THIS COULD BE IT!
ONEEEEEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! THR-
Talib: LUCAS KICKS OUT! Lucas Johnson isn’t done here tonight as he continues to fight. Jack stands up as Lucas begins to pull himself up with help from the ropes. Jack approaches him and throws another open handed chop at Lucas but Lucas blocks it! Lucas throws a punch of his own! HE NOW PUTS JACK IN THE FULL NELSON AS HE MAY BE SEEKING THE SKULL CRUSHING FINALE! JACK FORCES HIMSELF INTO THE ROPES TO GRAB ONTO THEM! SINCE THE FULL NELSON IS ALSO A SUBMISSION, THE REFEREE FORCES LUCAS TO BREAK THE HOLD! Jack just used his first rope break of the match. Lucas backs away as e delivers a swift kick to the ribs of Jack… SIDE RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP! He manages to quickly grab Jack and takes him down with that russian leg sweep. Lucas now turns Jack over onto his side. He runs off the ropes… AND TRANSITIONS INTO A SLIDING KICK RIGHT INTO THE BACK OF THE JACK RIPLEY! Jack rolls onto the apron as he grabs his back in pain!
Stew: Lucas gets to his feet as he approaches the apron. He pulls Jack up to a vertical base as he stays in the ring. Lucas is seeking to suplex him back into the ring… BUT JACK BREAKS HIS HOLD! HE PULLS LUCAS DOWN ONTO THE TOP ROPE AS HE JUMPS OFF THE APRON! LUCAS STUMBLES BACK BUT JACK REACHES IN AND GRABS HIM BY HIS FOOT! HE YANKS HIM DOWN AND TO THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING! Jack now throws Lucas… RIGHT INTO THE STEEL STEPS AS LUCAS CRASHES INTO THEM!
Talib: Jack now pulls up Lucas and leads him towards our announce table. HE GRABS HIS HEAD AND SLAMS IT DOWN ONTO THE TABLE! JACK ATTEMPTS HIS AGAIN BUT LUCAS QUICKLY ELBOWS JACK IN THE MIDSECTION! LUCAS SPINS JACK AROUND AND APPLIES THE FULL NELSON… SKULL CRUSHING FINALE! NO! JACK FORCES HIMSELF AND LUCAS BACKWARDS BEFORE HE CAN PULL IT OFF! LUCAS PUSHES HIM BACK FORWARD AS HE STILL SEEKS IT BUT NOW JACK BACKS LUCAS UP BACK FIRST INTO THE RING POST AS HE RELEASES THE HOLD!
Stew: THE REFEREE IS AT A COUNT OF SIX! OH MY GOD! DAYLIGHT SLAYING TIME! THE RUNNING KNEE TO THE HEAD OF LUCAS JOHNSON! JACK MAY HAVE KNOCKED LUCAS OUT! JACK ROLLS INTO THE RING AS THE REFEREE COUNTS SEVEN! Jack can win this by count out and retain his championship. He pulls himself to his feet as Lucas lays motionless right in front of the ring where Jack his that vicious running knee.
Talib: THERE’S THE COUNT OF EIGHT AND LUCAS STILL ISN’T MOVING! LUCAS BEGINS TO BARELY MOVE AS HE REACHES FOR THE APRON! THERE’S THE COUNT OF NINE! LUCAS PULLS HIMSELF TO HIS FEET AS HE TRIES TO SLIDE IN THE RING. THE REFEREE GOES FOR THE COUNT OF TEN JUST AS LUCAS FORCES HIMSELF INTO THE RING… AND THE REF IS SAYING HE MADE IT BACK IN THE RING IN TIME!
Stew: JACK IS LIVID! He was almost positive he was going to retain the championship there. He pulls up Lucas and throws him into the corner. He has him and is seeking a tornado DDT! HE GOES FOR IT BUT LUCAS THROWS HIM DOWN! JACK TRIES TO GET UP… SHINING WIZARD! LUCAS CATCHES HIM WITH THE SHINING WIZARD! LUCAS SEE HIS OPPORTUNITY AS HE ASCENDS THE TOP ROPE! JACK IS DOWN RIGHT BELOW HIM! RED ARROW! THE CORKSCREW SHOOTING STAR… IT HITS! MY GOD! IT CONNECTS! LUCAS JOHNSON COVERS!
ONEEEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
Talib: THERE IT IS…. WAIT! LOOK! THE TIP OF JACK RIPLEY’S BOOT! THE REFEREE NOTICED IT AS HE COUNTED THREE AS WELL! IT’S TOUCHING THE BOTTOM ROPE! LUCAS IS UNAWARE! HE SITS UP THINKING THAT HE JUST WON THE MATCH BUT THE REFEREE JUST ALERTED HIM OF THE BOOT! LUCAS CAN’T BELIEVE IT! ALBERT HITCHMAN AT RINGSIDE IS YELLING THAT LUCAS WON THE MATCH BUT JACK STILL HAD TWO MORE ROPE BREAKS TO USE!
Stew: Lucas stands up as he has no choice but to go on with the match. He drags Jack Ripley away from the ropes to the middle of the ring. JACK RESPONDS AS HE KICKS LUCAS IN THE MIDSECTION! JACK STUMBLES TO HIS FEET AS LUCAS BACKS AWAY! JACK APPROACHES LUCAS AND LUCAS THROWS A CLOSED FIST SHOT! JACK RESPONDS WITH A CLOSED FIST OF HIS OWN! THE REFEREE IS FORCED TO INSERT HIMSELF INTO THE SITUATION! HE ALREADY GAVE JACK ONE WARNING! HE NOW PENALIZES HIM OF HIS FINAL ROPE BREAK! HE NOW ISSUES A WARNING TO LUCAS! I THINK LUCAS MAY HAVE JUST BAITED JACK RIPLEY!
Talib: Lucas knew he still could use a warning and that Jack had already used his! Jack has been meant with a huge challenge here tonight. Lucas now fights back with a big clothesline! Jack stumbles as Lucas seeks another… BUT JACK DUCKS! HE NOW HITS AN ENZUIGIRI TO THE BACK OF JOHNSON’S HEAD! HE GRABS LUCAS FROM BEHIND… HE SETS HIM UP AFTER THAT ENZUIGIRI! RIPPLE EFFECT! HE CONNECTS WITH THE VERTEBREAKER! MY GOD! IT’S OVER! JACK COVERS!
ONEEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE-
Stew: WHAT?! ARE YOU SERIOUS?! LUCAS KICKS OUT! HOW THE HELL DID HE SURVIVE THAT! LUCAS JOHNSON KICKS OUT OF JACK RIPLEY’S VERTEBREAKER! JACK RIPLEY ONCE AGAIN IS LEFT SPEECHLESS FROM LUCAS JOHNSON! HE NEVER EXPECTED TO BE CHALLENGED LIKE THIS! A look of complete fury and aggression washes over his face. He stands up as Lucas Johnson rolls to the ropes as he begins to slowly pull himself up. I don’t know if Lucas has anything left in the tank. He’s exhausted as he barely manages to pull himself up. He stumbles around as he turns to face Jack Ripley… RIPLEY STRIKES! YOU’LL FLOAT TOO! THE SUPER KICK FOR A SECOND TIME….. NO! LUCAS DUCKS IT! HE QUICKLY GRABS JACK FROM BEHIND…. SKULL CRUSHING FINALE! LUCAS HITS IT! HE DROPS ON TOP OF JACK FOR THE COVER!
ONEEEE! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE———
Talib: JACK KICKS OUT! HOW ARE THESE TWO SURVIVING THIS?! A HUGE KICK OUT BY BOTH MEN AS THEY’VE THROWN EVERYTHING AT ONE ANOTHER! Lucas rolls off of Jack as he is exhausted! Both men are motionless. Lucas finally begins to stir just as Jack does. Both men get up but they can barely stand. LUCAS THROWS A OPEN HANDED CHOP AS JACK! IT CONNECTS! HE THROWS ONE MORE…. AND JACK RESPONDS WITH A EUROPEAN UPPERCUT! IT ROCKS LUCAS… HE GRABS HIM! OH GOD! THE VERTEBREAKER FOR A SECOND TIME?! NO! LUCAS ESCAPES THE HOLD AS HE GRABS THE ARM OF JACK AND DROPS DOWN! HE HAS IT! HE HAS IT! THE MACHINE BREAK IS IN PLACE! LUCAS JOHNSON APPLIES THE KIMURA LOCK! JACK RIPLEY IS DESPERATELY TRYING TO FIGHT AS LUCAS IS APPLYING IT WITH EVERYTHING HE’S GOT!
Stew: JACK IS NEAR THE ROPES! HE REACHES OUT WITH HIS FOOT AND DOES SO! BUT THE REFEREE IS ALLOWING IT! HE’S TELLING JACK HE’S OUT OF ROPE BREAKS! THIS IS FAIR GAME! JACK CAN USE THE ROPES ALL HE WANTS BUT LUCAS IS PERMITTED TO CONTINUE THIS HOLD AND JACK HAS NOWHERE TO GO! JACK IS SCRAMBLING AROUND WITH THE PART OF HIS BODY HE CAN MOVE! LUCAS IS LOCKED ON! JACK TRIES TO GET SOME LEVERAGE ON LUCAS AS HE TRIES TO THROW SOME SHOTS AT HIM BUT HE CAN BARELY DO SO!
Talib: IS HE GOING TO TAP! JACK RAISES HIS ARM… IS THIS IT?! NO! I THINK JACK MAY ALLOW HIS ARM TO BREAK BEFORE HE TAPS OUT WHICH COULD HAPPEN AT THIS RATE! HE REACHES FOR THE ROPES AGAIN BUT I’M NOT SURE WHY… HE BEGINS TO TRY TO STAND UP! HE’S USING HIS RIGHT HAND TO HELP PULL HIMSELF UP WITH THAT LEVERAGE! HE’S PULLING LUCAS UP WITH HIM! HE PUTS ALL HIS STRENGTH INTO IT AND LIFTS HIMSELF UP AS HE FORCES HIMSELF BACK DOWN! THE IMPACT BREAKS THE HOLD! WHAT FORTITUDE! HE MANAGED TO ESCAPE!
Stew: Jack is grabbing his arm! He can barely seem to move it from all the pain! Lucas is trying to get up and Jack must do so as well. LUCAS GRABS HIM FROM BEHIND FOR A GERMAN SUPLEX BUT JACK ELBOWS HIM WITH HIS GOOD ARM! JACK STEPS BACK… DAYLIGHT SLAYING TIME…. NO! LUCAS LUNGES OUT OF THE WAY! HE NOW GRABS JACK’S ARM AND TRIES TO RE-APPLY THE KIMURA LOCK! JACK RUNS FORWARD AND JUMPS BACK TO TRY TO SHAKE LUCAS OFF! HE MANAGES TO DO! JACK STUMBLES BACK TOWARD THE CORNER! LUCAS IS UP AND CHARGES AT JACK… DROP TOE HOLD! JACK TRIPS LUCAS RIGHT IN FRONT OF THE CORNER AND LUCAS FALLS INTO THE TURNBUCKLE! HE STUMBLES AWAY… YOU’LL FLOAT TOO! MY GOD! THE SUPER KICK CONNECTS! AFTER THAT CRAZY EXCHANGE, JACK RIPLEY HITS A SUPER KICK TO PERHAPS PUT THIS MATCH AWAY ONCE AND FOR ALL! HE COLLAPSES ON LUCAS FOR THE COVER!
ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
Talib: IT’S FINALLY OVER!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
(“Illest Motherfucker Alive” comes back on as the crowd erupts in boos. Jack Ripley rolls off of Lucas Johnson as he lays beside him as both men are completely exhausted. The referee lays the PURE Championship belt on Jack as he finally begins to stand up. He throws the title belt over his shoulder as he celebrates his victory.)
Stephie love: HERE IS YOUR WINNER…. AND STILL THE PURE CHAMPION… JACCCKKKKKK RRIPPLEEEYYYYYY!
Stew: What an absolutely insane opening match. What we’ve just witness is absolutely incredible. These two men just put on the performances of their career here tonight!
Talib: This match being under PURE rules really changed the dynamic. After having used all three of his rope breaks, one being through a penalty after using a closed fist, Jack Ripley had to endure the devastating kimura lock even when he couldn’t use the ropes to escape.
Stew: Jack Ripley barely manages to retain his title here and start off a big night for The 1% with the momentum in a good direction. He told EAW reporters earlier today he’d walk into Houston as champion and walk out of Houston as champion, and the young man did just that. Congratulations to Jack Ripley.
( Camera transitions backstage to the interview set, where Kathy Kush is standing by with a smile on her face. )
Kathy Kush: Ladies and gentlemen I’m backstage live right now with the former REVOLT Tag Team Champions who are getting ready to compete later tonight against Cameron Ella Ava and her sister, Ms. Extreme. Please welcome MR. DEDEDE AND IMPACT, THE LIQUID SWORDS!!!!
( Impact and DEDEDE enter the frame. )
Kathy: Imp, DDD, coming up tonight you compete in a tag team steel cage match where the rules are you can either win this match by pinfall, submission or by both members of a team escaping the cage through the door or climbing over the walls to the outside. Can you give me a hint of what method you two are planning to use in order to come away with the win?
Mr. DEDEDE: Sorry but I don’t discuss war strategy with walking cunts, so pass.
Kathy: Okay… Impact?
Impact: I’ll humor you with this Kathy, the involvement of the steel cage has nothing to do with adding theatrics to this match, it is simply symbolic of the situation the Ava sisters are in. The Avas are coming to face with the equivalent of being locked inside of a lions den, and what you are about to witness is everything you should have already come to expect from the Liquid Swords. It is going to get grisly, it’s going to be gruesome, and if my partner has anything to say about it it’s going to be something you ought to put the children to bed for.
Kathy: Do either of you feel like once everything is said and done, you may be able to put this rivalry behind you and possibly find some level of respect for one another?
Impact: It’s nothing but hate for the Ava sisters and it will ALWAYS be that way because DDD and I loathe everything that they embody, and we loathe it to our core. That’s something that will never change, and the fake sanctimonious bullshit that comes out of their mouths may deceive the sycophantic bottom dwellers in the crowd, but we see right through all of it.
Mr. DEDEDE: Does Genghis Khan forgive the enemies that he conquered? Did Chairman Mao forgive political dissidents after he slaughtered them? Obviously the fuck not, the great men of history simply destroyed everything in their path and never thought twice about it ever again. That’s how this is going to go. I’ll tell you this though, Cameron Ella Ava and that carny bimbo slut she has for a sister will be the example of why you should NEVER go to war with someone who gives a fuck less than you do, because what you may consider a “10” is only a “2” to the likes of Imp and I.
It’s not enough for me to put the Ava sisters down, an example must be made tonight, a message must be sent that will never go away. That is why the Ava sisters will be victimized like no EAW Elitist has ever been victimized before, because we are going to bring DEATH,
( Imp and DDD walk off with sick smiles on their face and the camera transitions back over to ringside. )
Stephie Love: Ladies and Gentlemen, the following contest is a Falls Count Anywhere match, and it is scheduled for one fall!
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!!
(“Year Zero” by GHOST hits as ZERO makes his way out onto the ramp to a pop from the crowd)
Stephie: Introducing first, making his way to the ring from Guadalajara, Mexico, weighing in at 190 pounds… ZZZEEEEERRRRROOOOOO!!!!
(ZERO looks out to the crowd as they cheer for him and nods his head before walking down to the ring looking light on his feet, throwing a few punches and showing he’s ready for a fight)
Stew: ZERO looks like he’s ready to go to war. Andy Lush has been a thorn in his side and vice versa. Tonight we decide a victor in this rivalry.
Talib: ITS ANDY LUSH! HE JUST RUSHED ZERO FROM BEHIND AND CLUBBED HIM! NOW ANDY GRABS AHOLD OF ZERO AND RUNS HIM FACE FIRST INTO THE CORNERPOST OF THE RING!
(The referee quickly slides out of the ring and calls for the bell)
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Stew: And the referee trying to establish some order in this chaos but remember this is falls count anywhere so the ref started the match because it didn’t matter if they were properly in the ring or not, this match can end in the rafters if it goes that far. Andy now following up on his underhanded assault and laying into ZERO with a series of boots to the midsection as the masked man is down on the floor now.
Talib: You call it whatever you like. I call it what it is: smart. This kind of match requires survival instincts and Andy is doing what he has to in order to secure the victory. That’s what makes him a winner.
Stew: Whatever you say partner but now back to the action. Andy has ZERO’s arm and SLAMS IT INTO THE RING POST! Did you hear that smack? Disgusting— BUT ZERO HAS ROLLED UNDER THE RING? He just flipped up the apron skirt—
Talib: That’s inappropriate. This is a family show.
Stew: He flipped it up and rolled underneath! Andy is trying to find where he went now! Looking all around the ring and kneeling to look underneath but he can’t see too far under.
Talib: Andy’s almost walked a full circle around the ring now! Where’s ZERO gone? WAIT!!! There he is! He just slid out! And he looks like he’s got his target set! Andy doesn’t see him! ZERO CHARGES!!!
Stew: THE ZERO HOUR CONNECTS AS ANDY HAD JUST LEANED DOWN TO LOOK UNDERNEATH THE RING AGAIN! ZERO MAKES THE COVER!!!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
LUSH KICKS OUT WITH A FRACTION OF A SECOND LEFT! That would’ve been an early finish! The element of surprise nearly got the best of Andy there!
Talib: But ZERO now with these punt-like kicks into the ribs of Andy Lush! Each one is connecting with a crack it seems! And now he lays Andy’s arm out in a way he likes… DOUBLE FOOT STOMP ON THE HAND OF ANDY!
Stew: ZERO wants to punish Andy! These two men feel nothin but hatred. He keeps his feet on Andy’s hand and wrist and leans over and grabs the fingers AND LOOK AT HOW FAR HE PULLS THEM BACK! ANDY IS SCREAMING IN PAIN AND ZERO JUST ENJOYING INFLICTING THE PAIN!
(Arena lights cut out)
Stew: What’s going on? What is this? We have a match going on!
Talib: Gotta pay them bills, folks.
( The beginning to “Blackstar” by David Bowie begins to play. )
Stew: Wait a minute… this couldn’t be…
(The lights come back up to reveal three figures on the ramp. One of the individuals is recognizable as Soothsayer Hamasa. The other two are masked. The larger of the two stands near seven feet tall and a massive build wearing a black sheep’s mask. The leaner of the two men wears a mask that looks like a horned demon.)
Stew: IT’S SOOTHSAYER HAMASA, LEADING TWO MEN DOWN THE RAMP, AND IF I CAN TELL BY THAT UNMISTAKABLE STATURE, I HAVE A STRONG FEELING I KNOW WHO ONE OF THEM ARE!!!!
(The three individuals begin to walk down to the ring. Hamasa walks slower, staying slightly behind to watch.)
Talib: ZERO is staring up at this group and he doesn’t know what to do. Andy Lush has rolls himself away and rests against the barricade and he looks just as lost as the rest of us.
Talib: Oh I don’t like this at all… look! They’re coming straight for ZERO and Andy! ZERO SLIDES INTO THE RING! Now he’s bent at the knees, looks ready for action. He isn’t gonna back down. Andy is still leaned against the barricade. Now this creep in the demon mask is climbing in the ring and comes face to face with ZERO. And at the same time— THAT BEHEMOTH IN THE SHEEP MASK JUST PICKED ANDY LUSH OFF THE GROUND BY THE HEAD LIKE HE’S A STUFFED ANIMAL!!!!! Pops him up in position… LIFTING POWERBOMB!!!!!!
(The monster pulls off his black sheep mask, revealing himself to be APOCALYPSE.)
Stew: THE MONSTROUS MAN APOCALYPSE HSE RETURNED TO EAW AND IS BEING BROUGHT BACK BY SOOTHSAYER HAMASA! As for their accomplice, it looks like ZERO is now trading blows with I guess a man you can only describe as a “demon” in the ring! AND LOOK! ZERO STARTING TO GET THE BETTER OF HIM! FAST STRIKES FROM THE LIGHTNING LUCHADOR! ZERO HITS THE ROPES— but Hamasa just picked his foot and ZERO falls flat! What is she even doing with these guys?!?
Stew: The former accomplice to Methuselah is now in alignment with APOCALYPSE and the unknown Demon! Now the Demon is on his knees on ZERO’s back and holding him down! He drops a straight elbow to the back of ZERO’s head and ZERO may be out cold! Now the Demon motions to the Sheep on the outside! Apocalypse climbs into the ring and walks over and… Hamasa and the Demon seem to be shouting something to him… OH NO!! APOCALYPSE IS CLIMBING UP TO THE TOP ROPE!!! THIS A 7 FOOT, 350 POUND MAN MAN AT THE TOP ROPE!!!! FOR THE LOVE OF GOD NO NO NO! DON’T DO THIS!! NO NO NO NO—
(crowd lets out an audible gasp before growing very silent)
Stew: DOUBLE FOOT STOMP FROM THE TOP ROPE STRAIGHT INTO THE HEAD!!!! ZERO’S SKULL MIGHT HAVE JUST BEEN CRUSHED!!! SOMEBODY GET SOME HELP OUT HERE!!!
Talib: I genuinely think we just witnessed a murder Stew.
(The two men survey their work, and begin to leave the ring. The camera pans up to see Andy Lush having just finished crawling up the ramp and getting himself behind the curtain. Suddenly medical staff rush the ring, staying clear of the path of the invaders)
( Soothsayer Hamasa uses her staff to point in the direction of Andy Lush, who is just barely able to recover. )
Stew: OH NO LOOK AT THIS, APOCALYPSE IS GOING AFTER ANDY LUSH AGAIN! PLEASE SOMEBODY STOP HIM!!!!
Talib: APOCALYPSE HOISTS A DEFENSELESS ANDY LUSH UP FROM THE FLOOR…. ETA CARINAE!!!!!! POP UP POWERBOMB SENDING ANDY LUSH THROUGH THE LED STAGE FLOOR!!!! MOTHER OF GOD!!!!!!
(The crowd starts chanting “HOLY SHIT!” Several officials rush to the crater left by Andy Lush’s body, and Soothsayer Hamasa leads Apocalypse and the demon out of the arena through the side of the stage.)
Talib: Thankfully it looks like it’s over… for now…
(The three walk up the ramp and off the side of the stage, through the utility exit)
Stew: Ladies and Gentlemen I’m so sorry for what you’ve just witnessed… we will be back shortly with more of tonight’s event but for now we will allow medical professionals to tend to both ZERO and Andy Lush.
( COMMERCIAL: November 17th marks an important day in wrestling history as many of wrestling’s biggest legends line up for one extraordinary event… EAW WICKED GAMES! LIVE from the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans, Louisiana! Presented by Voltage, only on the EAW Network. )
( We open back up to the show where we see the outside of the Toyota Center. )
Stew: The EAW Universe is anticipating the return of all-time great CAPTAIN CHARISMA as he makes his return to the ring for the first time in 6 YEARS against the one and only Prince of Phenomenal! But that’s November the 17th, tonight we’re in personally one of my favorite cities in the world, home city of Pain for Pride 4 and now the same city of tonight’s Operation: Doomsday event!
Talib: We just saw a doomsday unfold for two young men’s careers due to the return of APOCALYPSE and Donovan Cross!
Stew: This night is far from over, as a matter of fact up next we are going to enter TAG TEAM WARFARE inside of a STEEL CAGE!
( VIDEO PACKAGE: We get highlights of the feud between Cameron Ella Ava and Mr. DEDEDE which started with their alliance back at Wrath of the Dragon in May. We get a recap showing DDD screw Ronn Banks out of his career at Pain for Pride Festival and align with Theron Nikolas and Jack Ripley, and we see The 1% forming at the EAW Draft. We then see Cameron confront The 1% only for them to attempt to gang up on her, until Jamie O’Hara made the save and became victim to “The Equalizer” weapon. We then see Cameron enter a feud with Impact, stemming from Cam costing Impact a shot at the Answers World Championship in a qualifying match, which would cause Imp to target Cam in order to fulfill a promise he made to Jamie from months prior. In the main event of the October 5th Dynasty, DDD and Impact would doubleteam Cameron and re-unite the Liquid Swords. Just when the two planned on ending Cam’s career, her sister Ms. Extreme is shown coming to the save by attacking both men with a kendo stick. This would lead to the following week where DDD and Impact would promise to settle the score in a tag team steel cage match at Operation: Doomsday. The video package ends with DDD promising the Ava sisters “Death, Destruction and R-ape”. )
( Return to the inside of the arena… ominous music begins playing as the steel cage lowers from the rafters down to the ring. )
( DING! DING! DING! )
Stephie Love: The following is a tag team steel cage match scheduled for ONE FALL! The only way to win this match is by pinfall or submission, or by both members climbing over the cage wall or through the door of the cage until both set of feet touch the floor!
( “Gangsta” — New Years Day hits, and Ms. Extreme walks out to the stage with the stage LEDs matching the glowing red tint of her hair. She looks around at the crowd confidently. )
Stephie Love: Introducing first… residing in Calabasas, California, “THE RED QUEEN” MSSSSSSSSSSS EXTREEEEEEEEEEEEEEMEEEEEEEE!!!!!!
( “Gangsta” dies down, and soon after “ULTRAnumb” by Blue Stahli comes on the sound system, prompting Cameron Ella Ava to walk out to the stage next to her sister with a confident smile on her face. The two sisters begin their walk to the ring side by side. )
Stephie Love: And her partner, from Los Angeles, California… “The Goddess”, CAMEROOOOOOONN ELLAAAAAA AVVAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!
Stew: There has never been a battle too great for Cameron Ella Ava to go through alone, she has gone blow for blow with some of the greatest male and female EAW Elitists to ever live. However the threat posed by both Impact and Mr. DEDEDE were far too great for her sister Camille Jane Ava to ignore, and now these two sisters walk side by side into battle with — in my view — 1a and 1b on the list of the greatest wrestlers to ever do it. But on that same list Cam is not very far off from the top either, and Ms. Extreme has established herself as perhaps an equal to her own sister in many respects. You can see in their body language that they are prepared for war tonight in the Toyota Center!
( “ULTRAnumb” dies down and we see Cameron and Camille in the ring, testing out the walls of the cage as they wait for their opponents. )
( The lights of the arena dim and the stage LEDs begin to glow a dark shade of blue. “I Am A God” by Kanye West begins to play. )
( Shortly after, Mr. DEDEDE and Impact walk out to the stage both dressed in matching ‘Liquid Swords’ themed ring gear. They slowly saunter to the ring, keeping unbreaking eye contact with Cam and Camille. )
Stephie Love: Their opponents… weighing in at a combined weight of 470 POUNDS… THE TEAM OF IMPACT AND MR. DEDEDE, LIQUIIIIIIIIDDDDDDDD SWOOOOOOOOOOOORRRRRDDSSSS!!!!!
Talib: On Dynasty Mr. DEDEDE used his chairman powers to officially award Impact with a “Gawd Contract”, something he has used to his advantage on Voltage since then; but another thing DDD said to Impact was that he sees Imp as his friend, and for a man to be his friend they must be his equal in all respects! The Liquid Swords know each other better than any two wrestlers in this business may know each other! They’ve been mortal enemies, went to war against each other and went to war with each other, and tonight they are reunited under a common goal!
( DDD and Imp are in the cage, and the referee keeps Cam and Camille backed away as their opponents continue to taunt to the crowd. )
Stew: 13 World Championships in EAW and 24 end-of-the-year awards between these two men combined! Number of combined overall championships? TWENTY SEVEN. They’ve also participated in almost 150 FPV/Marquee matches in EAW history, and are respectively 1 and 2 for the most FPV headlines in EAW history! Cameron Ella Ava is one of my all time favorite wrestlers to watch, but from the perspective of a fan this is the most daunting test of her career, or her sisters!
( “I Am A God” dies down. )
( DING! DING! DING! )
Talib: DEDEDE AND IMPACT GO RIGHT AFTER CAMERON ELLA AVA AND TAKE HER OVER TO A CORNER TO DOUBLE TEAM HER WITH PUNCHES! BLOWS TO ANY OPEN PART OF THE BODY OF CAMERON ELLA AVA, COMPLETELY CATCHING HER OFF GUARD! NOW THE TWO ARE STOMPING AWAY AT HER, CAM BARELY ABLE TO DEFEND HERSELF!
Stew: BUT MS. EXTREME GRABS IMPACT FROM BEHIND! GERMAN SUPLEX!!!! SHE SENDS IMP FLYING! DEDEDE COMES AFTER CAMILLE, DUCK BY MS. EXTREME, AND A GERMAN SUPLEX ON DDD FROM BEHIND AS WELL!!! ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!
Talib: Impact already back up and Camille lures him into the corner, Impact charges after her for a running lariat but Camille jumps out of the way — and IMP IS MET WITH A WILD RUNNING CORNER DROPKICK BY CAMERON! CAMILLE SPRINTS ACROSS THE RING AT IMP FOR A CORNER DROPKICK OF HER OWN! A recovering DDD faces an onslaught of shoot kicks, stiff kicks slamming against the hamstring of The Gawd, followed by a couple of closed fists shots straight to the jaw! DDD is seated on the middle rope and Cameron going for another shot — until DDD cuts her off with a headbutt to the bridge of the nose! DDD takes Cam down with a STIFF lariat! Now he’s going after Ms. Extreme who’s about to deliver a VERTICAL SUPLEX ON IMPACT! But DDD cuts her off by coming to Imp’s side and taking Camille RIGHT INTO THE CORNER WITH A DOUBLE VERTICAL SUPLEX! MS. EXTREME’S BODY SMACKING RIGHT AGAINST THE TURNBUCKLE WITH ABSURD VELOCITY!
Stew: Imp collapses, holding his jaw that’s just been kicked in a few times, and DDD delivers a a couple of European uppercuts to Cameron, and attempts an Irish whip into the ropes! Cam reverses the whip, DDD rebounds off the ropes and Cam baseball slides between his legs and rolls him up from behind for a wheelbarrow roll up pin!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWO-
Talib: DDD rolls through it, rolling up to his feet and looking for a WHEELBARROW FACEBUSTER!!! TRANSITIONED INTO A NASTY UPPERCUT FROM IMPACT!!! WHAT A FREAKING SHOT, IMP MAY HAVE BUSTED CAM’S MOUTH WIDE OPEN WITH THAT RIDICULOUSLY LOUD UPPERCUT! NOW IMP TAKES CAM OVER TO THE ROPES, SENDS HIM THROUGH THE ROPES, AND DRIVES HIS SHOULDER INTO CAMERON’S RIBS SENDING CAM SPINE FIRST INTO THE CAGE!
Stew: Cam is looking a little out of it right now and Imp is taking complete advantage, holding her head through the ropes and battering punches into the side of her face! Ms. Extreme is coming to the rescue, but DDD grabs Camille by her hair and delivers a nasty forearm to the back of the head! Camille drops down to all fours, and DDD starts mounting on top of her… AND DDD STARTS DRY HUMPING HER!!! WHAT ON EARTH IS WRONG WITH THIS MAN?
( Camille crawls away from DDD and looks back at him in disgust. DDD crawls over to her on all fours, licking his lips before grabbing one of her boots. )
Talib: DDD TRYING TO SEXUALLY ASSAULT MS. EXTREME, GOING AFTER HER FEET FIRST! BUT CAMILLE HITS DDD WITH A KICK TO THE FACE! ANOTHER KICK TO THE FACE! A THIRD WELL DESERVED BOOT, RIGHT TO THE JAW! That stuns DDD enough for Camille to rush over to the aid of her sister who’s currently being stomped out by Impact, and Camille delivers a blow to Imps spine! Imp fires back with a right hand of his own, and he takes Camille and SENDS HER THROUGH THE ROPES TO SLAM HEAD FIRST INTO THE STEEL MESH OF THE CAGE! But luckily Camille stops the impact with her hands, albeit a little stunned, and DEDEDE CHARGES RIGHT AT CAMILLE WITH A SPEEEEEEEEARR!!!!!!!!!!! OH GOD!!!!!
Stew: CAMILLE DODGES JUST IN TIME, AND DDD SLAMS HIS HEAD INTO THE STEEL CAGE AND COLLAPSES TO THE APRON!!! A reckless move becomes wreckage for the EAW Chairman! Camille is over at one of the turnbuckles and she cuts off an oncoming Impact with an elevated boot to the face! Now Camille hoists herself up to the top turnbuckle, waiting for Imp to turn around, and SHE LEAPS OFF FROM THE TOP WITH A DIVING TORNADO DDT!!! SPIKING IMPACT INTO THE MAT!!!! CAMILLE COULD GO FOR THE PIN, BUT SHE’S ROLLING THROUGH IT! SHE’S HOISTING IMPACT UP TO A VERTICAL BASE FOLLOWING THE DIVING TORNADO DDT, AND NOW SHE MANAGES TO DELIVERS A MICHINOKU DRIVER!!! WHAT AN INCREDIBLE DISPLAY FROM MS. EXTREME! NOW A HOOK OF THE LEG SHORTLY AFTERWARDS!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWWWWWWWW-
Talib: Impact kicks out! That was so damn impressive, Ms. Extreme has been on a tear in the early parts of this match! Impact drags himself over to the far corner, and Ms. Extreme is hyping up this Houston crowd here, getting momentum on her side! Now Camille Ava follows Imp to the corner and starts choking him out by pressing her foot against the windpipe of the Quintessential Champion… now CAMERON ELLA AVA BLITZES OVER TO THE CORNER AND DELIVERS A DOUBLE KNEES TO THE HEAD OF IMPACT, SANDWICHED AGAINST THE BOTTOM TURNBUCKLE!!!
Stew: CAM IS LEANED AGAINST THE CORNER, AND DDD SPRINTS OVER TO CAMERON ELLA AVA LOOKING FOR THE RAPTURE!!!!! NO HELLUVA KICK HITS NOTHING AT ALL, CAMILLE PULLS CAM OUT OF THE WAY AND CAMILLE HOISTS DDD UP OFF HIS SUPLEX FOR A BACK SUPLEX… INTO A MASTY NECKBREAKER BY CAM!!! BACK SUPLEX/NECKBREAKER COMBO FROM THE AVAS! Now Cam tries her turn at a cover!
Ref: OOOOOOOONE!!!! TWOOOOOOOOOO!!!
Talib: DDD kicks out! The Avas doing a wonderful job keeping up so far-
Stew: Keeping up?! They are doing extraordinary!
Talib: Okay Stew calm down no need to start simping. Anywho The Avas are killing it, and it looks like they ain’t done! The two of em’ grab Impact at both sides and send him into the ropes with a double Irish whip — but IMP SPRINGS OFF THE MIDDLE ROPES AND DELIVERS A SPRINGBOARD DOUBLE BACK ELBOW!!! Takes both Avas down! Now Impact combat rolls to his feet and sprints over to the ropes looking for ‘FLIGHT SIGHTS’!!! LIONSAULT HITS ITS MARK!!!! NO THE CLOSEST TARGET CAMILLE GOT THE KNEES UP!!! IMPACT LANDED HARD WITH HIS RIBS SLAMMING AGAINST THE KNEES! NOW CAM HOISTS IMPACT UP FROM BEHIND LOOKING FOR ‘BREAKING BARRIERS’!!!! ARGENTINE BACKBREAKER MIGHT RIP IMPACT IN HALF!!!! But Imp struggles his way out of it, landing behind Cam and shoving her into Ms. Extreme! That sends Camille through the ropes and colliding with the steel mesh of the cage — but now Imp grabs Cam by the hair and OH MY GOSH!!! JUST CHUCKS HER OVER THE ROPES AND SENDS HER FACE SMACKING AGAINST THE STEEL CAGE!!! JESUS CHRIST!!!! You coulda heard that from the ticket booth!
Stew: Startling sound, and that might leave mesh-shaped marks across her face for weeks! Impact threw her into that cage with pent up aggression, and now Ms. Extreme charges at Impact and drives him into the corner before boxing him up with rights and lefts into any open part of the torso she can find! Camille trying to keep the momentum up for her team, now she sends Imp across the ring with an Irish whip! Camille charging after Imp with a corner attack — but DDD cuts Camille off by pouncing at her ankles! Camille can barely move now, and Impact springs up to the top turnbuckle, sizes Ms. Extreme up, and IMP FROM THE TOP ROPE!!! WEST COAST POP!!!! BEAUTIFUL FRANKENSTEINER PIN FROM IMPACT!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
Stew: Kick out by Ms. Extreme! Not every day you see Imp pull off a move like that, but it was excellent! Cameron is at the corner recovering, and DDD hoists Cameron up to a seated position on the top turnbuckle. Cam meets DDD with a couple of shots to the temple! But DDD fires back with a bone jarring blow to the ribs! Now a headbutt, slamming his own skull right between the eyes of The Goddess! DDD climbs up that same turnbuckle now, hooking Cam as well as he can… and he’s going for a SUPERPLEX FROM THE TOP TURNBUCKLE!!!!!!! DELIVERS IT!!!! RING RATTLING SUPERPLEX, AND DDD ROLLS THROUGH THE SUPERPLEX, HOOKING BOTH ARMS DURING THE ROLL-THROUGH AND DELIVERING A BUTTERFLY EFFECT SUPLEX!!!! BUT DDD ROLLS THROUGH THE BUTTERFLY SUPLEX YET AGAIN, LOOKING FOR SOMETHING ELSE — HE HANDS CAM OFF TO IMP, AND IMP BREAKS HER DAMN NEAR IN HALF WITH A TILT-A-WHIRL BACKBREAKER!!! JESUS CHRIST, MOVE AFTER MOVE, AND THE AREN’T DONE!!!! DDD DRAGS CAM’S BODY OFF OF IMP’S KNEE, AND HE HOOKS HER YET AGAIN!!!! LOOKING FOR THE MK DRIVER!!!!!!! LIFTING DOUBLE UNDERHOOK BRAINBUSTER!!!!! AND HE DRILLS CAM HEAD FIRST INTO THE CANVAS!!! GOD IN HEAVEN, THIS THING IS OVER!!!!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
Talib: MS. EXTREME BREAKS UP THE PIN JUST IN TIME! HOLY SMOKES, THERE IS NO CHANCE CAMERON COULD HAVE CONTINUED WITHOUT THAT SAVE! CAMERON JUST GOT PUT THROUGH THE FREAKING RINGER MAN!
Stew: That was an onslaught and then some Bari, but you can tell by that evil smile on DDD’s face that there might be more where that came from! Camille and DDD rush to their feet and go right at each other — but Camille dips behind DDD LOOKING FOR ANOTHER GERMAN!!! THIS TIME SHE WANTS TO SEND DDD OVER THE ROPES AND INTO THE CAGE!!! BUT WHAT THE HELL??? DDD GRABS CAMILLE BY THE WRIST … AND HE’S… HE’S PUTTING HER HAND IN HIS PANTS! OH FOR GOD’S SAKE THAT’S DISGUSTING!
( Camille pulls her hands out of DDD’s tights and backs away disgusted )
Talib: FIST OF FURY!!!!! KNOCK OUT PUNCH FROM IMPACT CRACKING CAMILLE ACROSS THE JAW FROM OUT OF NOWHERE!!! AND NOW IMPACT KEEPING THE FOOT ON CAMILLE’S NECK, AND DDD WITH A SHIT-EATING GRIN MOSEYS ON OVER TO MS. EXTREME.
Mr. DEDEDE (off-mic): IMP HOLD HER TIGHTER SHE’S A FIGHTER! (laughs maniacally)
Stew: Something is seriously wrong with this son of a Bitch! DDD props Camille Ava’s legs wide open… turns her around onto her back… and this dusting pig buries his face right in between Camille’s legs and stacks her up on her shoulders with a despicable pinning display!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
Talib: KICK OUT by Ms. Extreme. Ms. Extreme still has some fight left, meanwhile Cameron Ella Ava is nowhere near 100 percent, but she’s doing her best to regain a vertical base. Sure enough here comes Impact to drag her by the nape of her neck and snapmare her to the mat, before delivering a rope-assisted stomp to the face! Cam retreats over to the the nearest corner, and Impact hoists Cam up just to have her hanging upside down at the turnbuckle, being hung up to dry! Now Imp lifts Cam up by the hair and begins shouting vulgarity in her face before hammering away with unrelenting elbows to the face! DDD joins Imp in the abuse, this time stomping away at the ribs of the 4 time EAW Vixen of the year!
Stew: Cam is taken up from that hanging position and is just tossed over the ropes, hitting the apron and pressed against the steel mesh. It’s not looking too good for her or her sister right about now Bari. Imp steps up to the second rope now and pulls Cameron up, and he’s LOOKING TO DRAG HER FACE AGAINST THE STEEL MESH OF THE CAGE!!! NO CAM COUNTERS WITH A STUN GUN! Face plant over the ropes! Now Cameron Ella Ava is climbing up the walls of the steel cage, and DDD is coming right after her as she’s already more than halfway up the side of the cage! DDD has Cam by the leg, looking to drag her down to the mat which would result in a nearly ten foot fall from that height! Cam kicks DDD away! It’s a tense climb to the top and out of the cage, and Cam is continuing her trek up the side of the structure… but DDD is gaining on her fast! And now he’s getting uncomfortably close behind Cameron perhaps looking for a German suplex from high above the ring!!!!
Talib: OH LOW BLOW!!!!! CAM SWINGS BACK HER FOOT RIGHT INTO THE GROIN!!!! AND DDD GOES FLYING OFF THE SIDE OF THE CAGE WALL AND CRASHING DOWN TO THE FLOOR!!!!!
Talib: Impact is checking on her partner while Cameron Ella Ava has made it to the top of the steel cage! HOLY HELL SHE IS STANDING ON TOP OF THE 15 FOOT HIGH CAGE WALL, AND IT DON’T LOOK LIKE SHE’S TRYING TO GET DOWN THE EASY WAY! IMP IS HELPING DDD RECOVER AFTER GETTING HIS PROVERBIAL JEWELS JACKED — AND DOWN GOES CAM!!!!!!! MOONSAULT FROM THE TOP OF THE CAGE TAKING DOWN BOTH MEMBERS OF THE LIQUID SWORDS!!!!!!!! DDD AND IMPACT TAKEN OUT!!!!
Stew: WHAT RESILIENCE SHOWN BY CAMERON ELLA AVA! INCREDIBLE!
Talib: CAMERON PAINSTAKINGLY CRAWLS OVER THE TORSO OF DDD, AND THERE’S A COVER NOW!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
Stew: SOMEHOW DDD KICKS OUT!!! Somehow, some way Mr. DEDEDE is still in this! I suppose you shouldn’t surprised, he is probably the most resilient EAW Elitist in history even if he is a disgusting creep! Cameron Ella Ava with a beautiful but deadly moonsault, and I think that took almost as much out of Cam as it did the Liquid Swords! Ms. Extreme is coming to the aid of her sister and it looks like she’s pretty much letting Cam know that DDD and Imp are out of it! This match is theirs for the taking, and she and Cam immediately head to two opposite sides of the cage and begin their climb up to the top! This could be it!
Talib: The two Ava sisters making a break for it, wise decision after incapacitating Liquid Swords! DDD and Impact barely even know where they are, meanwhile their opponents are halfway up the side of the steel cage! Cameron is particularly struggling, having just taken a dive from over 15 feet in the air, but Mr. DEDEDE is already crawling over to Cam to try and get a stop for his team! Meanwhile Impact is doing the same thing, and is actually on his feet this time! The Ava sisters are quickening their pace, the two of them are nearly at the top….. it’s a race against the clock at this point, and it’s a race Camille and Cameron cannot afford to lose folks, because it is a LONG way down!
Stew: Cameron Ella Ava is seated on top of the cage, and Mr. DEDEDE uses the ropes to climb up to his feet and is just beginning to climb after Cameron! Impact is making a mad dash up the cage wall just as Camille reaches the top… and Camille is climbing over to the other side!!! BOTH AVA SISTERS ARE NOW OUTSIDE OF THE CAGE, ON THE OPPOSITE SIDE CLIMBING DOWN!!!!
Talib: CAM MEETS DDD FACE FIRST ON THE DESCENT, TAUNTING HIM TO HIS FACE, AND SHE DROPS TO THE FLOOR!!!! NOW MS. EXTREME!!!!! IT’S OVER!!!!!
Stew: NOT QUITE BARI! MS. EXTREME IS BEING HELD UP IN THE AIR MOSTLY BY IMPACT!!!! IMPACT IS AT THE TOP OF THE CAGE DANGLING OVER THE OTHER END HIMSELF, AND HOLDING CAMILLE BY HER HAIR! IMPACT NOW YANKING CAMILLE UP THE CAGE HOLDING HER HAIR BY ITS ROOTS! HE IS REFUSING TO LET THIS MATCH DIE! BOTH IMPACT AND MS. EXTREME ARE NOW SEATED AT THE TOP OF THE CAGE! MS. EXTREME SENDING PUNCHES AT IMPACT NOW, FIRING AWAY WITH SHOT AFTER SHOT HITTING THE JAW!
( Impact tilts sideways, about to fall off the top of the cage )
Talib: IMP IS IN A BAD WAY, AND IT’S ABOUT TO GO FROM BAD TO WORSE!!! UH OH!!!
Stew: IMP CATCHES HIMSELF USING ONE OF THE CABLES ATTACHING THE CAGE TO THE RAFTERS! THAT SAVED HIM FROM TAKING A 15 FOOT PLUMMET! IMP STRAIGHTENS HIMSELF UP AND GRABS A — A LOOSE PIECE OF METAL IT LOOKS LIKE FROM THE TOP OF THE CAGE….. AND HE BASHES IT OVER THE SKULL OF CAMILLE JANE AVA!!!! OH MY GOD OH MY GOD CAMILLE TOPPLES OVER, HANGING OFF THE SIDE OF THE CAGE WALL WITH ONE HAND, AND IMP BASHES HER OVER THE HEAD AGAIN!!!!!! CAMILLE FALLS OFF!!!! CAMILLE HITS THE FLOOR!!!!
Talib: BUT UNFORTUNATELY FOR HER AND CAM SHE DIDN’T FALL IN THE DIRECTION SHE NEEDED TO LAND! MS. EXTREME HAS LANDED INSIDE THE RING! This is a HORRIBLE turn of events for the Ava sisters, and Cameron is outside looking completely devastated! Camille Jane Ava is back in the ring, and she is in the sights of a predatorial Mr. DEDEDE who is at the turnbuckle crouched over, waiting for her to recover!
( Cameron Ella Ava rushes over to the cage door and approaches one of the referees guarding it. She begs him to unlock the door of the cage, and the referee begins to do as she asks. )
Stew: Ms. Extreme is in a terrible predicament right now, and I don’t think she has any idea the amount of danger she’s in! Camille Ava is sluggish in her recovery, and she’s back to a vertical base albeit on spaghetti legs about to turn around and face a VERY MR. DEDEDE, WHO IS CHARGING UP AT THE CORNER FOR A SPEAR!!!! …. AND DDD TAKES OFF!!!!!!
Talib: RRRRAPPPTUREEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!! DDD CHARGES — NOT AT CAMILLE — BUT AT CAMERON ELLA AVA JUST AS SHE’S ABOUT TO ENTER THROUGH THE CAGE DOOR!!! THAT SENDS CAM FLYING OFF OF THE APRON AND CRASHING INTO THE BARRICADE!!!! WHAT A BRUTAL SHOT!
Stew: DDD is now demanding that the referees chain up the door again…. oh great what’s he up to now?!
( DDD demands the referee hands him the key to the cage, threatening their jobs if they don’t. The officials chain up the door and reluctantly hand DDD the key to the steel cage. DDD takes the key and tosses it over the wall of the steel cage and deep into the crowd. )
Talib: MR. DEDEDE HAS ELIMINATED CAMERON’S EASY PATH BACK INTO THE RING! MEANWHILE LOOK AT THIS! IMPACT TURNS MS. EXTREME AROUND — EVISCERATION!!!!!!!!
Stew: NOT SO FAST! MS. EXTREME MANAGES TO STAND HER GROUND AND COUNTER WITH THE DOUBLE LEG! NOW SHE’S GOT BOTH OF THE LEGS HOOKED, AND SENDS IMPACT OVER THE ROPES WITH A SLINGSHOT!!!!!! IMPACT BRUTALLY SLAMMING INTO THE CAGE FACE FIRST! NOW DDD GOES AFTER MS. EXTREME LOOKING FOR A GRAND SLAM!!!!!! GRAND SLAM!!!!!
Talib: BUT CAMILLE FIRES AWAY WITH A FLURRY OF FOREARM SHOTS TO THE FACE! NOW SHE COUNTERS WITH A DROP TOE HOLD, AND TRANSITIONS INTO THE AVA LOCK!!!!! MODIFIED STF APPLIED!!!! DDD CAUGHT IN THE CENTER OF THE RING, AND THIS COULD BE THE BEST CHANCE CAMILLE HAS AT COMING AWAY WITH A VICTORY!
Stew: SHE IS GIVING THIS EVERYTHING SHE POSSIBLY HAS! MS. EXTREME JUST REEEEARING BACK AT THAT STF, AND DDD IS, AS YOU SAY BARI, “GOIN’ THROUGH IT”!!!
Talib: HE SURE IS STEW, NOW DDD’S GOT A HAND OUT POSSIBLY CONTEMPLATING SUBMISSION! IT IS TAKING HIM EVERY OUNCE OF WILL POWER WITHIN HIM NOT TO GIVE UP ON THIS THING, AND TO HIS CREDIT HE IS LASTING A LONG LONG TIME! IT DOESN’T MATTER HOW MUCH BIGGER YOU ARE OR HOW PHYSICALLY SUPERIOR YOU MAY BE, A HOLD LIKE THIS IS A REAL EQUALIZER, AND IT IS BEING APPLIED EFFICIENTLY! DDD CANNOT ESCAPE THIS HOLD BY ROPE BREAK EITHER, NOT IN A STEEL CAGE ENVIRONMENT! HE IS GOING TO HAVE TO FIND ANOTHER WAY OUT OF THIS!
Stew: HE MAY NOT HAVE FOUND ANOTHER WAY, BUT HE DOES FIND SOME BACK UP! IMPACT, BLOOD DRIPPING DOWN HIS JAW, CLOBBERS MS. EXTREME OVER THE HEAD WITH A YAKUZA KICK! AND NOW HE TURNS THE TABLES ON CAMILLE, GRABBING BOTH LEGS AND APPLYING THE WALLS OF IMPACT!!!!!! LIONTAMER, STRETCHING MS. EXTREME OUT AND BENDING HER NEARLY IN HALF!!!
( Mr. DEDEDE uses the ropes to pull himself up, and starts slapping himself in the face. )
Talib: THE TABLES REALLY DID TURN STEW! MS. EXTREME TRYING DESPERATELY TO FIGHT OUT OF IT, SHE’S TURNING HER BODY OVER AS MUCH AS SHE POSSIBLY CAN! MEANWHILE CAMERON IS RECOVERING, DOING HER DAMNDEST TO GET BACK UP TO HER FEET…… NOW MS. EXTREME TURNS HER BODY OVER AND USES HER LEGS TO PULL IMPACT IN WITH A SMALL PACKAGE CRADLE!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
Stew: IMPACT KICKS OUT! Both Imp and Ms. Extreme scramble back to their feet! Cameron Ella Ava meanwhile is desperately trying to make the climb up the cage walls, but it is taking her a painfully long time for her to climb, more time than she might actually have! Impact and Extreme both recover — EVISCERATION!!!!!!!!!!!! HE GOT IT THIS TIME, MS. EXTREME NAILED WITH THE CODEBREAKER!!!!! BUT BEFORE MS. EXTREME CAN FALL TO THE FLOOR, SHE TURNS AROUND — BANG!!!!!!! SHE JUST GOT MOWED DOWN BY A SPEAR!!!!!!!!! DDD WITH A HOOK OF THE LEG!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!
( DING! DING! DING! )
( “I Am A God” by Kanye West hits, and Cameron drops off the side of the cage and collapses to her bottom out of fatigue, holding her head in frustration. DDD and Impact have their arms raised by the referee. )
Stephie Love: Here are your winners, IMPACT AND MR. DEDEDE, LIQUIIIIIIIIID SWOOOOOOOOOORDDDDDSSSS!!!!
Stew: It was an incredible performance tonight from a very game Ms. Extreme who was arguably the MVP of her team during this match, but Liquid Swords found an opportunity from the 2 on 1 scenario that was created from a last second surge at the hands of Impact!
Talib: We saw a lot of resourcefulness from both sides Stew but we also saw why Liquid Swords were such a dominant force in REVOLT, and it’s because of their ability to cover each others tracks with superstar showings! Impact making that last second surge to stop Ms. Extreme from exiting the ring, and DDD keeping Cameron out of the equation to ensure that they were able to keep the advantage they created for themselves. What a showing!
( The cage raises back up to the rafters and DDD & Imp celebrate their victory on the ramp. Cameron comes to the aid of Ms. Extreme, who is on the floor holding her stomach and violently coughing. )
Stew: Camille Ava taking the fall for her sister Cameron, and inquiring minds must wonder what could possibly be next in this violent and tumultuous saga between Cameron Ella Ava and the Liquid Swords?
( Camera transitions backstage to a dark, poorly lit cellar of the arena only furnished by a sink with a cracked mirror on the wall, a couple of production crates, and a steel chair with the Answers World Championship draped over the seat. We see a shadowy backdrop of electrical wiring and gas pipes that lead to the boiler room. )
( Darkane walks into the frame with a grim look on his face. He looks looks into the mirror while taping up his fists in preparation of his match tonight in the main event )
( While Darkane looks in the mirror we see, from the mirror’s perspective, a figure emerging from the shadows behind Darkane. That figure is Erebus Jennings. )
Darkane: (unfazed) What are you doing here.
Erebus Jennings: I have a proposition.
Darkane: Is it a legitimate one or is it a Faustian deal?
Erebus: It depends on how confident you are in keeping your Answers World Championship. You and I sit at very similar positions in the Dynasty locker room. We both have a crow’s eye view of the entire landscape of Dynasty, if you will. We are the watchers of Dynasty, yet neither of us have anybody watching our backs.
Darkane: That’s because I don’t need anybody. I got eyes on the back of my head, and I got my head on a swivel.
Erebus: That’s what you have fooled yourself into believing. From your vantage point, you are so high above the Earth that you believe nothing can take you by surprise, but more and more forces on Dynasty are uniting to shoot the likes of you right out of the sky.
( Darkane finishes wrapping up one of his hands and begins working on the other. )
Darkane: So you want somebody to watch your back? I’m afraid that’s not going to do much for me if you can’t even make it through a PURE Championship tournament.
Erebus: Fluke victories are exactly the kind of circumstance that will knock you off of your newly acquired pedestal. I’m willing to do something that is rare of me and participate in a mutually beneficial alliance with you, but it’s ultimately your choice. You can either maintain your power through unity or you can remain powerless and alone.
Darkane: (chuckle) That sounds nice Erebus. All kidding aside everybody knows what you’re capable of in the ring. The only question is… what’s in it for you?
Erebus: Isn’t it apparent? You have something that I want, something everybody wants. There is no other championship that I desire more than the Answers World Championship. I am willing to remain your ally, but it is only so that I can challenge you for that gold currently in your possession.
( Darkane picks up the Answers World Championship from the chair on the side of the sink, and he holds it over his shoulder before turning around to meet Erebus face to face. )
Darkane: How about I take a rain check on your offer? No offense, but I’ve been dominating Hall of Famers and One Percenters all season, and I haven’t needed anybody’s help to do it. I certainly won’t need yours. But hey, if anything changes I’ll be sure to send a sparrow, or a raven, or whatever it is you keep as pets.
Erebus: Very well, just remember that there are always consequences for every action, but there are even greater consequences for inaction.
( Erebus turns around and walks back into the darkness, and Darkane looks on. )
( Camera transitions back to the arena. )
(The camera fades into Tables placed all over ringside, on top of the stage, and even off the stage below. It then transitions to Stephie Love standing in the ring with a smile on her face. )
( DING! DING! DING! )
Stephie Love: The following match is a Tables match for the New Breed Championship! The only way to end this match is for one contestant to forcefully put their opponent through a table!
(Psyched Out by The Supersuckers blares throughout the arena as Ryan Wilson makes his way out of the curtain, and onto the stage. He slaps the hands of all the fans as he makes his way down to the ring)
Stephie Love: Introducing first, the challenger, from Montreal, Quebec, Canada, weighing in at 200 pounds.. “The Canadian Studmuffin” RYYYAAAN WIILLLSOOONN!!!!!
Stew: Here is Ryan Wilson, he came so close to winning the Hardcore Championship at Territorial Invasion against Johnny Ventura, until Jack Ripley decided to cash in his 24/7 contract, ruining his night. Hopefully for Ryans sake he has better luck tonight as I don’t foresee anyone coming in to cash in.
Talib: I don’t know about that, I see the way Noah Reigner eyes Raven Roberts.. That could be unrelated though.. Either way this match should be fantastic!
(The lights cut out as “Make A Move” by Icon For Hire begins to play. The stage fills with purple smoke as Raven Roberts walks out wearing a large pair of black wings and sleeved gloves with the New Breed Championship belt around her waist. She soaks in the boos from the crowd before confidently strutting down the ramp. She walks up the stairs and along the apron before pausing with her back to the outside of the ring. She looks over her shoulder and with a wink to the camera, she pops the latch on her chest and her wings fall to the ground. She climbs into the ring and poses for the hard camera.)
Stephie Love: And the champion.. Residing in Las Vegas, Nevada.. weighing in at 147 pounds.. SHE IS THE NEW BREED CHAMPION.. “The Bird of Prey”… RAAAAVEEEENNN ROOOOBBEERRRRTTSSSSS!!!!
Stew: WHOA what an entrance! That’s the champion for you, always at peak performance! She’s strutting her stuff, and showing exactly why she’s champion..
Talib: She’s literally just walking down to the ring with wings. But hey what do I know. Raven has done a great job as champion since defeating Xander Payne at Territorial Invasion, and she hopes to continue her dominance tonight against Ryan Wilson..
(Both competitors stand in the ring glaring at each other from across the ring. The referee takes Raven Roberts New Breed Championship, and lifts it in the air signifying what’s for grabs. He gives it to the ring announcer, and makes sure the two are ready. When he gets confirmation he signals for the bell to start the match)
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Stew: And Ryan Wilson isn’t wasting any time trying to get the tables involved here as he starts trying to run out of the ring to grab one. But Raven is right behind him and grabs him by the tights, and pulls him back to her.. GERMAN SUPLEX! Ryans head snapped right back into the mat, but he rolls right up to his feet and charges right back at Raven. Raven sees though and side steps Ryan, Ryan quick on his feet leaps and lands on the ropes, bouncing off right back at Raven HURRICANRANA! Raven slides under the ropes, and down onto the floor. Ryan seeing an opening here, and seems to be measuring her up.. Raven is pretty far from the ring though! Does he have the vertical ability to make this jump! Ryan runs to the opposite side of the ring, and leaps with all his might Somersault Senton! AND HE FLIES RIGHT INTO RAVEN! THEY BOTH GO FLYING! RYAN INTO THE CROWD! BUT THEY HAVE CAUGHT HIM! AND ARE BODY SURFING HIM RIGHT BACK OVER THE BARRICADE. They toss him over, and he lands right back on his feet! What a lovely crowd we have here!
Talib: The EAW faithful are ride or die with they’re Elitists, and it brings a tear to my eye. Do you think they would surf me if I jumped in the crowd Stew?
Talib: Cool, cool… So Ryan is back on his feet, and has a hold or Ravens hair, dragging her up.. LOW BLOW! Raven hits Ryan right in his crown jewels, and he flops to the floor. It’s all legal though! You can do whatever you want, as long as you don’t get put through a table, you’ll be fine! Raven now just grabs one of the tables that are lying around here at ringside, FINALLY someone is using the object that gets them a win in this match.. And she just throws it on top of him.. Well it won’t get her a win, but those tables are heavy. She gets another unopened table and tosses that one on him! And another! She’s burying Ryan Wilson here! She’s going back into the ring.. Looks like this Raven.. Is going to fly! She’s climbing up the turnbuckle and looks down at Ryan buried underneath those tables.. WHAT’S THIS??! RAVENS WINGS!! FROM THE TURNBUCKLE ALL THE WAY DOWN TO THE FLOOR, SQUISHING RYAN UNDERNEATH ALL THOSE TABLES! Very impressive maneuver by the current reigning New Breed Champion. Raven gets back to her feet, and throws her hands up to the air.. The crowd cheers in applause to show their appreciation.. Oh, Raven now has two middle fingers up, showing the crowd what she really thinks about their applause, and they quickly turn to boos. Raven throws all the tables off of Ryan, and a lifeless corpse of who used to be Ryan Wilson seems to be laying there still. She picks him up and throws him back into the ring. She gets one of the tables that she just landed on, and tosses it in behind him. Raven sets the table up and picks up Ryan, but Ryan seems to be coming back to, he starts striking at the mid section of Raven.. Raven still looks to Irish Whip him across the ring, but Ryan counters it, Raven bounces off the opposite ropes, and comes running back at Ryan, AND HE DELIVERS A SPINEBUSTER RIGHT ON THE TABLE! BUT IT DOESN’T BREAK! And falls down to the floor Ryan looks surprised, but tries to shake it off and goes back on the offensive.
Stew: But Raven is able to roll right out of the ring. Ryan seems to be getting ready to go for that jump right on again! He’s charging up, here he comes! Suicide Dive!! CHAIR SHOT RIGHT TO HE HEAD! RAVEN WITH A CHAIR RIGHT TO THE SKULL OF RYAN WILSON. Ryan Wilson is completely out of it, his body is just a human slinky. Raven picks him up.. What’s she doing? Oh yes.. It would appear that Raven has taken their land, and has claimed their table with Ryan Wilson’s body! Raven is yelling at them to get out of here!
Talib: Raven now going back to the ring, and up to the top turnbuckle! OH my god, I think she’s going to jump from the ring, to the table! This is insane!
Stew: Raven is looking down at Ryan’s body, and turns around!! The Raven is going to fly… AGAIN! She takes a deep breath in.. RAVEN’S WINGS FROM THE TOP TURNBUCKLE AND CRASHES RIGHT INTO RYANS BODY AND THE TABLE BREAKS!! WOW! RAVEN IS UP ON HER FEET! JUMPING UP AND DOWN! SHE THINKS SHE WON THE MATCH!.. BUT THE ANNOUNCERS TABLE DOESN’T COUNT! She’s back in the ring raising her arms up, and directing the referee to raise her arm in victory! But the ref is trying to tell her that it doesn’t count! She’s flapping her wings proudly! Not listening, she’s wasting a lot of time without even realizing it. She finally hears the words that the ref is trying to tell her; now she’s seems to be visibly angry!
Raven: What! What do you mean I didn’t win! I put his ass through a table bitch!
Talib: She just called the ref a bitch! Oh he did not like that.. But all of this is giving Ryan more time to.. OH DAMN! RAVEN JUST GOT SMACKED IN THE FACE WITH A TABLE. RYAN WILSON IS BACK ON HIS FEET!
Stew: Ryan now taking the table and putting lays it in the corner upright. He brings up Raven and tosses her to the table, leaning her on it. He backs up, and CHARGES FULL FORCE.. NO! RAVEN THROWS THAT TABLE RIGHT IN THE FACE OF RYAN STOPPING HIM IN HIS TRACKS. SHE PICKS HIM BACK UP.. LOST BEAUTY! NO! RYAN COUNTERS GAME OVER!! A STUNNER HITS AND RAVEN SEEMS.. Well.. Stunned. But again no pins in this match. Raven rolls out of the ring, and Ryan follows behind. He’s looking under the ring for something.. It’s.. A Hockey Stick.. WRAPPED IN BARBED WIRE!!
Talib: Ryan Wilson now waving that Barbed Wire Hockey Stick around, getting the crowd amped up… What’s this? He’s not done yet, he’s reaching down under the ring again, and he has some sort of bottle?! IS THAT KETCHUP!! NO! It’s just a red bottle.. IT’S LIGHTER FLUID!! HE’S LIGHTING THE HOCKEY STICK ON FIRE! He’s setting up a Slap Shot with Raven’s face! She’s crawling around on all fours.. And Ryan stands right over her, she doesn’t notice the flaming hockey stick.. Somehow.. She looks up!
Ryan: Au revoir
Stew: HE JUST SLAP SHOT RAVEN RIGHT IN THE FACE AND THE FLAMES FOR A BRIEF SECOND SEEMED TO ENGULF IT! RAVEN IS WRITHING ON THE GROUND IN PAIN. THE CROWD EXPLODES IN CHEERS AS RYAN TAKES ALL THE PRAISE. Ryan now running up the ramp waving at the crowd, really taking it all in! He loves all this attention! Raven and her burnt ass face is now crawling at Ryan up the ramp like Anakin Skywalker out of that lava in that one movie. Creepy sight. Ryan see’s her crawling and decides to set up a table. He meets Raven halfway up the ramp, and starts dragging her to the table. He places her sitting on the table, SUPERKICK! Raven has been laid out. Seems to be nap time for the New Breed Champion, Ryan now joins her up on the table! OH HE MIGHT END IT RIGHT HERE! HE HAS HER IN WHAT SEEMS TO BE A PILEDRIVER POSITION! HE LIFTS HER UP!! .. NO! SHE’S WIGGLING HER WAY OUT OF IT, but he hits her a few times, and puts an end to her pushback. HE’S GOING FOR THE PILEDRIVER AGAIN!! HE HAS HER UP! PILEDRIVER ON THE TABLE PLANTS HER HEAD DIRECTLY INTO THE TABLE!! But that table DOES NOT break! This match is still going.. Ryan looks angry here, but picks her up again, seemingly looking to do it again!.. LOW BLOW! Another low blow to poor Ryan Wilsons ball bag, he isn’t having kids anytime soon after this.. Raven flips him over and hits a back body drop all the way to the stage! … Ryan is spent, Raven is spent, they are both struggling to their feet. Raven must have serious burns, Ryan may have a busted testicle and internal bleeding, but this is the price they pay for .. Wait Raven seems to be up on her feet, staring directly at Ryan.. What’s she doing! Ryan is standing on the edge of the stage.. HERE COMES RAVEN! SPPEAAAAARRRR! RIGHT OFF THE STAGE!!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Talib: RAVEN JUST SPEARED RYAN WILSON OFF THE STAGE AND THROUGH ONE OF THOSE PRE PLACED TABLES THAT EAW STAFF HAD OUT! THIS MATCH IS OVER!!
Stephie: HERE IS THE WINNER OF THE MATCH, AND STILL, NEW BREED CHAMPION.. RAAAAVVVEEEEEN ROOOOOBBBEEEERRRRRRTTTSSS!!!!
Stew: Wow, what a great match. Very close match between both competitors, but in the end, Raven with the awareness of her surroundings had the ware with all to throw caution to the win, and spear Ryan Wilson right off the stage and into a table. I was confused, I forgot all about those tables.
Talib: I think we all did, but that’s why Raven is the New Breed Champion, attention to detail. Ryan Wilson was unable to clip the wings of Raven, as she still is soaring high as New Breed Champion..
Stew: Ok enough of the bird puns.. We get it.. Congratulations to Raven.
( COMMERCIAL: Next weekend EAW caps off it’s four day takeover of the Aloha Stadium in Hawaii with Showdown supershow: NO REGARDS! Witness EAW Champion Diamond Cage walk into the toughest challenge yet as Scott Diamond challenges for the EAW Championship in a stipulation of his choosing! What will the stipulation be? Find out tomorrow night on Showdown! )
( Camera opens up backstage to the office of Dynasty General Manager Starr Stan, who is a large and busy office with refreshments, fine furniture and an entertainment center displaying the FPV on a 70 inch screen. People in the room are talkative and Starr Stan himself walks into the office with EAW Vice President, HRDO. The both of them have smiles on their faces. )
Corporate HRDO: I’m very impressed man. The promotion for this show has been the best I’ve seen for a Dynasty Marquee in over three years!
Starr Stan: That really means a lot coming from you man.
HRDO: Don’t mention it. Seriously, I was getting worried for a while there. It looked like you were completely starting to lose your grip… I almost became concerned about your health!
( The two stop at Starr’s desk. )
Starr: I was losing my mind running this place man, I don’t know how you do it with the whole company because I swear Dynasty alone was giving me heart palpitations. But I think things are finally starting to click thankfully enough. I’m pretty worried now that I have to deal with that Apocalypse guy though.
HRDO: Yeah good luck with him. Son of a bitch nearly killed me last year.
Starr: Speaking of which what were his arrest records again? I bet we could pull them up.
( Starr opens up his HP laptop and attempts to log in. )
HRDO: Yeah go ahead and pull them up, I’m curious as well. I don’t understand why DDD allowed a monster like that into this company. Then again with the way he’s been acting nowadays it’s almost like they’re the same person-
Starr: Wait a sec what the hell?
HRDO: What’s wrong?
Starr: I just tried logging in like 5 times and it’s not letting me??
HRDO: Did you forget your password?
Starr: OF COURSE NOT! IT’S “STARR69”! I just tried it again!
( Starr types in his password furiously, and the screen displays a big “lock” symbol with the words “try other user”. )
Starr: You know what forget this shitty HP I’m breaking it in half, Macs are better anyway.
( Starr opens up his MacBook Pro and tries to log in, but the same symbol with a big “lock” appears on the screen. )
Starr: No way dude no way! I think I’m being hit with ransomware!
HRDO: Should we call IT or something?
Starr: This can’t be happening dude no…
( SUDDENLY: both laptop screens go dark, and turn back on with the words “SYNCON” written on both of them. )
Starr: (with his hands on his head) I can’t believe it! I’ve been hacked! I’m being hacked by anonymous! FUCK
HRDO: I don’t get it, what would anonymous want with the Dynasty General Manager?
Starr: I don’t know dude but they’re threatening to release my personal information! I’m being fucking doxxed man! This is bad, I have so many messed up skeletons in my closet, I can’t let this shit get out!
HRDO: Skeletons? Of what kind?… :usure:
Starr: Um, you ever heard of ‘yiffing’? :lupe:
Starr: Hold on I’m going to call my wife, I’ve got a lot to explain. :mjcry:
( Starr pulls out his cellphone to call his wife, but the phone of the screen reads “SYNCON – Welcome to Synthetic Consciousness!” and Starr finds himself unable to use it. )
Starr: NO!!! NO!!! NO!!!!! :damn:
HRDO: Starr hang on a second!
( Starr drops the phone to the floor and runs out of the room, and HRDO follows him out while the others in the room look on in bewilderment. )
( We return to the inside Toyota Center, and a graphic for the EAW Openweight Championship appears on the screen. )
(“DUST” by Tremonti hits the PA system and the fans inside the Toyota Center rise to their feet. Kevin Hunter walks out to the stage and raises his fists in the air, allowing the cameras zoom in on the fact they’re already taped up and covered in glass. Hunter makes his way to the ring. )
Talib: It’s now time for the third championship match of the evening, featuring Dynasty’s own Kevin Hunter who has stepped up to the plate for his brand to challenge Lars Grier for the Openweight Championship!
Stew: Three weeks ago on Dynasty Kevin Hunter put Darkane through a heck of a match up in a match of the week performance with the Openweight Championship on the line. Unfortunately for Hunter he did not come away with the win, nor was he given any opportunity, so instead he TOOK it by getting in Lars’ face and calling him out.
( Kevin takes a corner, and waits for the arrival of the EAW Openweight Champion, Lars Grier. “4th Dimension” by Kids See Ghosts ft. Louis Prima replaces Kevin Hunter’s theme and Lars makes his way out. He’s accompanied by his brother, the REVOLT! Goat Maximus Grier, and Maximus is holding the Openweight Championship. Lars also has his fists taped and covered with glass, and he looks extremely focused. )
Talib: Kevin Hunter’s definitely taking the opportunity and he’s taking the extra mile, because he has made this match a Taipei Deathmatch with the approval of Starr Stan and his opponent, Lars Grier! I asked Kevin earlier why he chose this stipulation, and as he boldly put it: Lars wants to talk like a man? He’ll need to fight with his fists like a man! That says everything you know about the kind of match we’re about to see!
Starr: Lars has called Kevin quote, an “effeminate male”, questioning Kevin’s manhood and telling Kevin he’s not going to get any credit for coming close to winning the big matches. This is definitely not going to be friendly competition, this is expected to be a fight!
( Lars and Max get in the ring and after they take a corner, Stephie steps forward.)
Stephie: Ladies and gentlemen, the following contest is a Taipei Deathmatch for the Openweight Championship and it’s scheduled foooooooooor….
Crowd: ONE FALL!
Stephie: Introducing first… he’s our challenger!!!! From Brooklyn, New York… weighing in at 235 pooooooounds… HE IS THE ALPHA KIIIIIIIING… KEEEEEEEEEEEVIN HUUUUUUUUUUUUUNNNNNTTTTTEEEEEEEEEERRRRR!!!!!!
(Hunter cracks his neck and stares a hole in Lars, but the Crooked Man doesn’t seem fazed.)
Stephie: And his opponent… from Cincinnati, Ohio… weighing in at 265 pounds… HE IS THE ELITE ANSWERS WRESTLING OPENWEIGHT CHAMPION… THE CROOKED MAN… LAAAAAAAARRRRRRRSSSSSSSSS GGGGGGGGGGGGRRRRRRRRRRRRIIIIIIIEEEEEEEEEERRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!
(Maximus holds the championship up and the crowd reacts accordingly. They don’t really seem impressed with Lars Grier to be honest. After a moment, and a few last minute words of encouragement, Max gets out of the ring. Stephie steps out as well, and it’s all Lars and Kevin now.)
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Stew: Well, this match is officially underway I guess. Lars and Kevin Hunter are circling one another. This is a Taipei deathmatch for the Openweight Championship and nothing about this match is gonna be pretty. Lars takes the first swipe, but Hunter evades it. Hunter takes a swing of his own. Lars ducks. Kick to the gut. Hunter with the tackle. Lars powers him off before he can land a punch. Lars is quickly up to his feet. Hunter up as well. Both men stop and stare at one another.
Talib: These two competitors nod their heads at one another and go back to circling one another. You have to think that whoever manages to land the first blow is going to gain a huge advantage in this match. Lars Grier moves towards Hunter, but the Alpha King drops down to his knees and brings his glass encrusted fist up between Grier’s legs!!!
Stew: Well that’s a rather effective way to land the first blow.
Talib: Lars goes down and there goes Kevin Hunter! He’s hammering away on Lars Grier now! Over and over he slams his fist into the champion’s face and Lars Grier is busted open. Kevin Hunter plants his fist one more time in Lar’s face and begins to drag it across Grier’s forehead! It took less than five minutes to reduce the Openweight Champion to a bloody mess.
Stew: Ya know. I’m secure enough in my masculinity to admit that Lars Grier is an extremely handsome man. I hope this doesn’t scar him.
Stew: Lars finally forces Kevin off of him and attempts to pull himself up. Max is on the outside of the ring, screaming instructions at his brother. Hunter tries to grab Lars, but the Crooked Man kicks him back and finally does haul himself back up to his feet. He spears Hunter to the mat and starts punching him. Kevin Hunter is now busted open! The Devil Incarnate is trying to fight back but Lars Grier isn’t having it. He’s striking Hunter over and over, and Kevin Hunter is in trouble. Lars pulls Kevin to his feet and sends him stumbling back against the ropes with an uppercut. Lars hammers away on Hunter’s chest and sends him over the top rope with a clothesline. Lars climbs out as well and he grabs Kevin Hunter by the hair. Hunter fends him off with several strikes to the breadbasket and a stiff knee shot, and grabs Lars by the hair. Come on bruh, don’t walk him over here.
Talib: Hunter bounces Lars’ face right off our announce desk and he’s back to work on that forehead. He punches Lars a few times before grabbing him from behind, and wrapping him in a choke. Lars is trying to knock Hunter back by hitting him in the head, and OHHH! That shot caught Hunter right in the eye! His eyebrow is split open now, and that wound looks sick.
Stew: Yikes! Lars whirls around and plants Hunter into the mat with straight right hand to the jaw. Lars drops down, plants his fists on Kevin Hunter’s chest, and rakes them across his flesh. Kevin Hunter is cut up pretty badly now.
Talib: But The Alpha Male is still pelting Lars with those strikes. The Openweight Champion is forced to back off of Hunter, and that’s allowing Hunter to get back to his feet. Max is shouting at Lars to get back on the attack, but Hunter drives his shoulder into the gut of Lars and forces him back against the ringpost. Kevin Hunter is now using his fist to open up those face wounds further.
Stew: The Alpha Male rears back and is looking to slam his fist into Lars’ face for a TKO, but Lars ducks! Hunter’s hand slams into the ringpost! Dang! His hand might be broken now. Hunter is clutching his hand and cringing, and Lars grabs him by the tights and tosses him back into the ring. Lars is stomping away on that injured hand of Kevin Hunter now and Hunter is doing his best to roll out of the way! Lars bends down to grab Hunter up… possibly looking for his Broken Sixpence finisher…
Talib: KEVIN HUNTER WITH ANOTHER SHOT TO LARS DESPITE THAT POSSIBLE BROKEN HAND! Lars is dazed! Hunter quickly grabs him and rolls him up! KEVIN HUNTER WITH THE ROLL UP, AND A HANDFUL OF WRESTLING GEAR!!!!!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOONNNNNNNNNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!…. TTTTTTTTTTTTWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!…. TTTTTTTTTTTTTTHHHHHHHHHHHHHHRRRRRRRRRRRRRREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!
Talib: NO WAY!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Stew: OH MY GOD AN UPSET!
( “DUST” by Tremonti plays on the sound system. )
Talib: Holy crap! Kevin Hunter with a quick roll-up victory! Maximus Grier looks stunned beyond belief on the outside!
(Kevin Hunter slips out of the ring and snatches the Openweight Champion from a shocked Maximus Grier!)
Stephie: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… YOUR WINNER AND NEW ELITE ANSWERS WRESTLING OPENWEIGHT CHAMPION… THE ALPHA MALE… KEEEEEEEEEVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVIIIIIIIIIINNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN HHHHHHHHHHHHUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUNNNNNNNNNNNNTTTTTTTTTTEEEEEEEEEEERRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!
Stew: Wow! Dynasty just took the Openweight Championship right from Voltage!
Talib: I’m still a little shocked at how quickly that ended.
Stew: I think a lot of people here and at home are baffled by this Bari! But this isn’t the first time Kevin Hunter has gone above and beyond what’s expected of him, and this might be the message that needed to be sent to everybody in Elite Answers Wrestling!
( Lars is in the ring on his knees looking in shock by what occured while Kevin Hunter is on the ramp celebrating, holding up the Openweight Championship with both hands. )
Talib: I think this is the last time anybody’s going to underestimate Kevin Hunter Stew.
[ 10 MINUTE INTERMISSION ]
( Hype video for the EAW Grand Prix plays! 8 teams, 1 grand opportunity, the EAW Tag Team Grand Prix begins Monday, October 29th EXCLUSIVELY on EAW Battleground! Brackets to be released this week on the EAW Fight Grid. )
(The camera cuts back to the ring as Stephie Love stands in the ring with a microphone in hand.)
Stephie Love: Ladies and Gentlemen, this next contest IS YOUR MAIN EVENT OF THE EVENING, AND IS A TABLES, LADDERS AND CHAIRS MATCH FOR THE ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP!!!!!!!!!
(The lights throughout the arena dim to almost complete darkness.)
“ILLEST MUTHAFUCKA ALIVE!!!!!!”
(“Illest Motherfucker Alive” by Kanye West and Jay-Z hits s as the thousands in attendance erupts with a chorus of boos. The titantron and lights throughout the arena glows gold as Theron Nikolas slowly makes his way through the curtain. He stands on the stage looking down at the King of Elite crown he holds in both hands before nodding to himself and making his way down to the ring.)
Stew: People have spent months asking when this man would cash in that King of Elite crown after he won it back at King of Elite last January. We’ve watched this man change from one of the brightest prospects this company has seen for as long as I can remember to a vile, bitter man that has stopped at nothing to tear down those he holds responsible for his own shortcomings. He’s the man that brought an end to one of the most fabled careers in this company history – this company’s creator: Ronn Banks.
Talib: The main thing about tonight is that he’s walking into this alone. He’s been surrounded with this stigma that in situations like this – he can’t get the job done on his own. If he wins tonight he destroys all of it. He can proudly hold that Answers World Championship knowing that he’s the man that truly deserves the right to call himself champion – but, if he loses – I would hate to see what would happen to the man’s psyche if he fails to finally reach that mountain top.
(Theron enters the ring and slowly makes his way to its center. He slowly turns completely around taking a long look at the thousands in attendance before slightly dropping his head and closing his eyes. He takes a deep breath before backing into his corner and crouching down, looking up at the stage and waits for the champion to make his arrival as “Illest Motherfucker Alive” fades out.)
Stew: I don’t believe that I have ever seen Theron this focused.
(The lights throughout the arena fade to complete darkness as the rift of a guitar blasts through the speakers echoing around the arena. “Born Too Late” by Saint Vitus hits and the band is revealed playing on the stage as red lighting flashes around the arena. A light mist begins to rise out from the stage and flow down the ramp to the ring as Darkane slowly rises from the stage. The Answers World Champion rests comfortably around his waist as the thousands in attendance roar with approval as Darkane stares down at his challenger who waits in the ring.)
Stew: There has been one question that has been looming from the moment that this man won the Answers World Championship from Scott Diamond at Pain for Pride – is there anyone on Dynasty that can stop this man’s reign over the brand? He has openly stated that all challengers will fall to Darkane Times, and he has kept that promise to the fullest for the last few months. He beat Theron’s stablemate Jack Ripley at Revolution. He overcame two Hall of Famers; two of the greatest of all time in both Y2Impact and Cameron Ella Ava at Territorial Invasion. Add an extremely game Kevin Hunter on Dynasty and you have a great resume together.
Talib: Darkane has been an incredible champion, and this what makes this contest so intriguing. These are arguably the two top stars on Dynasty. Do you want to know what has been on my mind throughout this week when it comes to our main event, Stew? The champion has NEVER beaten his challenger. Theron beat Darkane in their first encounter. Darkane was one of the thirty three names that Theron beat to win the 24/7 Contract at Pain for Pride X. Theron beat Darkane to win the very crown that he’s cashing in tonight. Is that on the mind of the champion at all? Will that add more motivation in Darkane’s quest to remain champion. There is one certainty about this match – both men are going to put each other through absolute hell to walk out with Dynasty’s biggest prize, and we’re fortunate enough to what every piece of it unfold.
(Darkane slowly begins to make his down to the ring, never taking his eyes off the King of Elite. The Answers World Champion pays no attention to any of the fans sticking out their hands as he makes his way up onto the apron and enters the ring. Saint Vitus finishes “Born Too Late” as both men stand in their respective corners; the energy in the arena is palpable.)
Talib: You can cut the tension with a knife!
(The referee makes his way over to Theron who takes one last look at his King of Elite crown before handing it over. The referee hands the crown to the time keeper as Stephie Love readies herself for the formal introductions.)
Stephie Love: Introducing first the challenger from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada! He weighs in tonight at TWO HUNDRED AND TEN POUNDS!!!!… HE IS THE 2018 KING OF ELITE!!!! THEEEERON NIIIIIIKKKOOOLLLLAAAASSSS!!!!!
(The crowd erupts with another chorus of boos as the hint of a smile crosses the face of Theron.)
Stephie Love: And now introducing the champion from New Orleans, Louisiana! He weighed in tonight at TWO HUNDRED AND FORTY SIX POUNDS!!!! HE IS THE REIGNING, DEFENDING ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION!!!! HE IS THE “GRAVE WORM”!!!! DAAAAARRRKKKAAAANNNEEEE!!!!!!!
(The crowd erupt as Darkane raises the Answers World Championship high into the air before handing it to the referee. The referee makes his way to the middle of the ring, placing the Answers World Championship around the hook and it raises high into the air.)
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Stew: The bell rings and our main event for the Answers World Championship is officially underway! The King of Elite cashing in his crown against the champion, Darkane! Theron just stating up at the championship hanging above – that’s everything that he’s been working towards. A vile smirk crossing the face of Darkane – Theron enters his world tonight. Darkane is in an environment that he feels at home in. The two step forward and meet in the middle of the ring with a collar and elbow tie up. Darkane quickly uses his power advantage and back Theron up into the corner; no disqualification means that the champion doesn’t need to break and fires with a hard shot to the ribs! Darkane quickly follows that shot with an elbow before grabbing the challenger by the arm and sending him across the ring into the opposite corner with an Irish whip. Darkane looks to follow with a running corner clothesline, but Theron is able to slip underneath and catches Darkane with a shoot kick to the ribs! Theron fires with a second before looking to do the same as Darkane moments ago! Darkane twists out of the Irish whip, keeping hold the wrist of Theron and PULLS HIM INTO A SPINEBUSTER!
Talib: Theron’s able to slip over the shoulder and takes Darkane down to the canvas with a sunset flip! Theron pushes Darkane away and shoots back to his feet – LOW SIDE KICK TO THE JAW! Darkane avoids the contact, trying to scramble back to his feet! SUPERKICK! Darkane avoids the boot again! ROLLING ELBOW FROM DARKANE! This time Theron is able to avoid contact – and Theron locks the waist! Darkane fires back with an elbow! Theron staggers back into the ropes and Darkane looks to send him over the top with a running clothesline – but, Theron drops the shoulder and uses the Answers World Champion’s momentum to send him over and over! Darkane lands hard on the outside, but he isn’t down for long – BUT, THE MOMENT HE GETS BACK TO HIS FEET THE KING OF ELITE FLIES THROUGH THE ROPES AND SENDS DARKANE CRASHING BACK INTO THE BARRICADE WITH A TOPE SUICIDA! Theron shoots back to his feet and doesn’t look to waste any time in the slightest. Theron looking around; the man has so much at his disposal. The King of Elite grabs a steel chair! Theron turning back towards the champion and looks to nail him between the eyes!
Stew: Darkane cuts him off with a kick to the eyes! Theron drops the chair AND DARKANE LIGHTS UP THERON’S CHEST WITH A BRUTAL CHOP! The look on the face of Theron tells the entire story; his chest has to feel like it’s caving in on itself! DARKANE FIRES WITH ANOTHER! Theron turning his back on the champion and tries to walk away – BUT DARKANE HAS STEEL CHAIR IN HAND AND NAILS THE KING OF ELITE IN THE BACK WITH A DEVASTATING SHOT! Theron dropping down to his hands and knees and Darkane shows no intention of relenting in the slightest! Darkane with another vicious shot across the spine with that steel chair! The spine of Theron Nikolas jarring in pain! Darkane just stalks his challenger, watching as he drags himself back up to a vertical base; Darkane tosses the chair aside and meets Theron with a closed fisted shot to the head! THERON RETALIATES WITH AN OPEN HANDED SLAP TO THE FACE! A look of pure fury and fire crossing the face of Darkane as he wildly swings with a haymaker, but Theron ducks underneath and counters with a stiff forearm!
