DAY ONE

( EAW Intro plays )

( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KZ-BiD_ibPM )

( The initial video package ends. )

( We have a late-afternoon view of the desert on the dusk of day, and a POV view from a camera drone gives us a view hovering over the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, with over 150,000 people packed into it enjoying the MANY festivities of Pain for Pride Festival — with many of them walking over to Kinetic Field and spectatic far beyond the Kinetic Field bridge in anticipation of Pain for Pride after finishing a musical performance set from one of the subsidiary stages. )

( We see US Military fighter jets zipping over the ENORMOUS venue, helicopters flying over the venue, and US Navy Seal parachute task forces jumping from planes wearing colorful chemtrail jet packs as they descend into the venue. )

( We get the POV of the camera drone again flying through the park seeing individuals in flashy, vibrant costumes. We pass through hundreds of people getting food, riding the Ferris Wheels and amusement rides, looking for their friends and companions and etc. As the camera moves closer to the main stage, we see many individuals hurriedly making their way over to that direction. )

( The largest of the entire park: Kinetic Field, has well over 100,000 fans surrounding the ramp, the ringside area, and are packed deep into the rest of the venue. Tens of thousands are also entering the venue and spectating from the far along bleachers. Mega Screens are found all over the park, ready to project the Pain for Pride festival. The giant canopy often seen over the ring during Pain for Pride events is designed with a robotic blue “REVOLT!” fist holding a hologram of the “world” in its palm. )

( The lights go out…….. and a 50 foot, robotic “Mother Goddess” ascends from the top of the stage, hovering gracefully over the audience to the amazement of the crowd. The stage itself begins to glow a light shade of red as suspenseful and ominous music begins to play. )

Mother Goddess: Kinetic Field..

( Crowd begins to cheer in excitement. )

Mother Goddess: Here in this storied and sacred space, we celebrate legends, together.

( Smoke fills the stage, and yellow lights shine from the stage, beginning to slowly dance with the red glow. )

Mother Goddess: Filling our souls with an unmistakable energy that connects us all! Open your hearts and minds…. join down the pathway to new experiences…

( The music starts to get more intense, the pianos in the background grow more antsy, the lights become more vibrant. )

Mother Goddess: Pain can by found everywhere … Pride is the answer.

( The lights become even more intense, and the robotic Mother Goddess holds forth the palm of its hands. )

Mother Goddess: Pride is …. kinetic.

( The music becomes more intense, we see exquisite animations on the LCD ramp, LCD stage floors, LED ringposts and LCD giant pillars holding up the canopy over the ring. )

( On the giant Castle-like stage we see two large “servant” figurines holding a 30 foot electric-powered heart stands at the center of the stage. The other lights go out, with the emphasis being put on the violent red glow of the “beating” heart. )

Mother Goddess: Lend me your heart my children. Choose me before you choose this world.

( 50 foot flames rise from the stage repeatedly…. and a massive burst of pyro explodes from the electric-powered heart, as Robotic Mother Goddess descends from above the stage, disappearing from view. )

( Flames repeatedly glow from the stage, as pyro “rains” down from the top of the stage at both ends. Soon, pyro blasts from the top of the 150 ft stage into the sky for ten seconds before the stage cuts back to darkness. )

( “The Moment” by Tame Impala begins to play. )

Mother Goddess: And now…. for the first time ever…. EAW partners with EDC to present to you the ELEVENTH ANNUAL, PAIN FOR PRIDE!!!!!!!

( ROAR OF APPLAUSE FROM THE ENTIRE VENUE FULL OF FANS. )

“IT’S GETTING CLOSER!”

( FIREWORKS SOUND FROM ACROSS THE ENTIRE VENUE, AND WE ARE GIVEN SEVERAL VIEWS: )

(“True Love” by CFO$ play as Sienna Jade and Kassidy Heart walk out hand-in-hand wearing Ancient Greek-inspired black and silver ring gear with black masquerade masks. The Jaded Hearts smile at the crowd as they make their way down the ramp)

SG1: Welcome to Empire’s first match for Pain for Pride! I’m SG1 and this is my partner Gia Cervantes!

Gia Cervantes: We’re starting this mega-event with a tag match for the EAW Empire Tag Team Championship! The Jaded Hearts made it a point to declare themselves the dominant tag team in Empire’s tag division!

SG1: Based on their undefeated performance as a cohesive unit, I wouldn’t be surprised if they walk out of PFP with those belts!

Gia: We’ll have to see soon enough! Even with a member change, the hearts are a formidable force to be reckoned with!

(The Jaded Hearts climb into the ring, posing for the crowd. The slowly take off their masks, smiling at the crowd before going to their respective corner)

(Opening notes of “Same Disease” by Red plays as the lights dim and turn red. Black smoke fills the stage.)

(Guitar drops and a woman wearing all white, two piece ring gear, a white masquerade mask, and white angel wings with a halo walks out with an Empire Tag Team Championship around her waist and stands with her back to the ring.)

“I AM TOXIC, I AM SO IMPURE
I AM DYING INSIDE, DYING FOR A CURE”

(A woman wearing a black nun’s habit comes out. The tunic has been cut into a crop top below the chest and her cowl is complete with a black veil. On her neck lies a golden rosary, complete with a sideways cross. She also wears an Empire Tag Team Championship around her waist and stands next to the angel with her back to the ring.)

“SEPARATED, I AM QUICK TO RESIST
I AM ALL ALONE… INFECTED WITH THIS”

(The women reach their hands out towards each other, strange markings show on the backs of their hands.)

“I’M IMMUNE TO YOU, YOU ARE IMMUNE TO ME”

(They suddenly lace their fingers together, forming the Crowe’s Nest logo between the markings on their hands.)

“WE ARE BOTH SICK SOULS WITH THE SAME DISEASE”

(Suddenly the two turn around, the angel removes her mask to reveal Raven Roberts and the nun lifts her veil to reveal Jael Arcana-Rosario.)

“I’M A SIDE SHOW, ISOLATED AND TORN
ONLY YOU CAN TOUCH ME, YOU ALONE”

(The Empire Tag Team Champions begin to walk down the ramp together, holding hands by just their index fingers. The champions proceed down the ramp without speaking a word, and their eyes remain focused on the ring.)

“I’M IMMUNE TO YOU, YOU ARE IMMUNE TO ME
WE ARE BOTH SICK SOULS WITH THE SAME DISEASE”

(The song plays on as the two continue down the ramp. Raven pops the latch to remove her wings as she walks towards the apron. The two separate and hop up onto the apron on opposite sides. They climb through the ropes and join in the center of the ring, lacing their fingers once more to form the Crowe’s Nest logo. They soak in the boos from the crowd. As the music dies down, Jael and Raven proceed to their corner to talk strategy.)

(Jasmine Peyton is standing in the middle of the ring)

Jasmine Peyton: The following match is scheduled for ONE FALL!

Crowd: ONE FALL!

Jasmine: And it is for the EAW Empire Tag Team Championship! First, the challengers! Weighing in at a combined weight of 255 lbs! Kassidy Heart! Revolt Freeweight Champion Sienna Jade! THE JADED HEARTS!

(Both women step forward, grinning at the Crowe’s Nest)

Jasmine: Their opponents! Weighing in at a combined weight of 283 lbs! THEY ARE YOUR EAW EMPIRE TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS! Raven Roberts! Jael Arcana-Rosario! THE CROWE’S NEST!

(The Crowe’s Nest smile as they hold up their titles and gives them to the ref. Both teams meet in the middle of the ring)

SG1: Here we go. Jaded Hearts vs the Crowe’s Nest.

(DING! DING! DING!)

SG1: Referee Jesse Carlton has called for the bell, and this match is underway! Jael Arcana-Rosario and Kassidy Heart have chosen to start things off for their respective teams! Both women meet in the middle of the ring and lock-up! Kassidy attempts to sneak behind for a waistlock, but gets caught in a headlock by Jael! Kassidy gets to a knee and goes for the legs and lifts for a Saito suplex! Jael flips out of it and whips Heart to the ropes! Kassidy ducks under the clothesline and rebounds against the ropes! Jael avoids the low dropkick with a cartwheel! Kassidy jumps to her feet! She catches the toe kick in time and evades the surprise enzuigiri! She tries to counter with an ankle lock, but Jael kicks her away and gets to a knee! Kass was about to charge, but stops to slows down the pace!

Gia Cervantes: The fans are showing a positive reaction to the amazing sequence we’ve just witnessed! Here are two women who are not known for their technical prowess pull off some amazing catching wrestling! Jael cracks her knuckles, urging Kassidy to try again! The blonde half of the Jaded Hearts gets into a freestyle stance, circling around each other! Kassidy agoes forward, aiming for another double leg takedown! She has Jael by legs! She lifts and pushes Rosario to the corner! Jael grabs the ropes and pushes her away with both feet! Kassidy comes at her with corner shining wizard! Wait! Jael blocks it and grabs hold of Kassidy! She puts her kicking and screaming opponent over her shoulders in the argentine position! Wow what a facebuster!

SG1: What a quick thinking mind from Jael, who likely took a page from Chelsea who used a similar tactic in a recent victory. She picks up Kassidy by the hair- huh!? Heart sneaks a schoolgirl roll-up! Jael kicks out before the ref starts counting! Jael is on her feet- DROPKICK BY KASSIDY! Jael is up against- SECOND DROPKICK! Jael jumps to her feet! She ducks under the spinning heel kick! He has Kassidy by the neck! Heart’s eyes are wide with fear- CHOKEHOLD STO!

Gia: It seems like everytime Kassidy tries to build up momentum, Jael finds a way to shut her down! She needs to switch to a new strategy if she wants her team to walk away with the titles!

SG1: Despite Raven and Jael being a relatively new team, Rosario has experience fighting women who uses a ‘shooter style.’ Jael stomps on her opponent in the sternum for good measure and pulls Kassidy by the hair to her team’s corner, despite the ref’s warning! Raven Roberts accepts the tag and doesn’t hesitate drilling Kass against the corner with a flurry of mudhole stomps! Roberts grabs the ropes and jumps high! Turnbuckle dropkick to the chest and Jael tags herself in!

Gia: Sienna’s yelling at the ref to do something, but the Crowe’s Nest is completely in their right at this point! Raven and Jael grab both of Kassidy’s arms! Double knee armbreaker! Both women blow a kiss at an enraged Sienna! Kassidy’s not in a good place right now. She needs to deliver that tag!

SG1: Jael is the legal woman who picks up Kassidy to continue the assault! Arm-trapped backbreaker! She’s taking her time with breaking down one-half of the number one contenders! Kassidy rolls to the edge of the ring in an attempt to escape! Jael grabs the ropes and leaps over for a double stomp onto the apron! Kassidy rolls back under the ropes! She gets up and collides with Jael, knocking her off the apron!

Gia: What quick thinking from Kassidy Heart, who created some much needed separation between her and Jael! She’s crawling over to her partner, feeling the effects from the double team assault from earlier! Sienna’s cheering her best friend on, eager to get the potential hot tag! Kassidy picks herself up and goes charging!

SG1: Wait Jael just slid into the ring-

Gia: NASTY WESTERN LARIAT FROM JAEL ARCANA-ROSARIO! Kassidy nearly got her head taken off! Rosario makes the cover!

Ref: OOOOONEEEEEE!

Gia: Somehow Kassidy kicks out at one!

SG1: Kassidy Heart is one tough woman, but I doubt she can hold out for long. Jael has already waged a near insurmountable offense against her! Jael grins at Sienna and sticks out her tongue while applying a chinlock! She’s just toying with Kassidy at the moment! The Crowes had a plan coming into this, and it seems to be paying off! Jael picks up Kassidy and whips her to the corner! Jael charges for the running knee! She collides with Kassidy’s foot face-first! Raven tries to grab her, but Kassidy hits her with a hard elbow, knocking her off the apron! Jael charges forward but Kassidy lifts herself up and has her legs around her neck! Rope-assisted headscissors takedown! Kassidy Heart is free from the corner and has the potential to turn things around for her team!

Gia: Sienna’s hopping up and down, just waiting for that tag! Kassidy is using every ounce of strength to make it to the other side! Jael tries to reach out, but Kassidy starts hopping forward! She leaps! SHE MAKES THE HOT TAG AS SIENNA JADE LEAPS OVER THE ROPES! RUNNING DDT TO JAEL! Raven climbs into the ring! DOUBLE CHOP SENDS HER RIGHT BACK OUT! Wow you could hear the impact from here! Jael is back up but Sienna has her in a clinch and starts sending stiff knees to the midsection! One! Two! Three! Four! NORTHERN LIGHTS SUPLEX WITH THE ARCHING BRIDGE!

Ref: OOOOOOONEEEEEEEE!

SG1: Jael kicks out! Sienna wastes no time and traps her in a headlock! She has that thing on tight as she turns to check on her partner, who’s resting in their team’s corner!

Sienna: (off mic) You okay Kass!?

Kassidy: (off mic) LET’S KILL THE BITCH!

SG1: Sienna seems to get the message and lets go of the headlock! Stiff kick to the back! Jael’s holding her back in pain! STIFF kick to the chest! Sienna’s assaulting her opponent from both sides! She hits the ropes- SHINING WIZARD! That was beautiful! She hit that knee right on the sweet spot of the chin! Sienna picks up Jael and drags her over to the corner! Raven tries to come into the ring, but is stopped by the ref! Sienna gouges the eye! Jael stumbles back into the corner! Kassidy is pulling at her hair! Sienna’s kicking at the midsection! Raven’s telling ref Jesse Carlton to turn around, but she’s too focused on telling Raven to stay in her corner! Kassidy lets go as soon as Carlton turns around!

Gia: That’s the thing about the Jaded Hearts- they will use anything and everything to get their way! Sienna now has her boot to Jael’s throat as the ref starts to count! She quickly breaks the hold and tags in Kassidy! Sienna runs along the apron to the other side! The ref starts yelling at her to go back to her corner while Kassidy starts choking Jael with both hands! Heart lets go just before the ref turns back to her! The Hearts are resorting to the underhanded tactics they’re known for! Sienna tags herself in and Kassidy whips Jael to the ropes! Sienna goes low as Kassidy charges! Chop block/Clothesline combination! Kassidy grabs Jael in a camel clutch as Sienna hits the ropes! Vicious basement dropkick! Kassidy goes back to the apron before the five count!

SG1: The Hearts are showing off superior tag tactics! Jael has been the legal woman for her team during the majority of this match and the signs of wear and tear are beginning to show! Sienna has applies the Fujiwara armbar! Jael is screaming in pain, trying to escape! Sienna leans back to keep her opponent in place! Jael’s trying to escape, but little to no avail! Jael shifts her weight a little and the two roll along the mat! Sienna still has the armbar! Jael’s dragging herself to the ropes! Raven is yelling at her partner for motivation! Jael reaches out…SHE HAS THE ROPES!

Ref: One!
Two!
Three!
Four!

Gia: Sienna legs go and starts screaming at the ref, accusing her of counting too fast! Jael is struggling against the ropes, trying to keep her mind right! She’s doing what she can to stay in this match! Sienna goes back over, kicking away at Jael’s hamstring! Jael fights back with a wild swing! Sienna ducks! STUN GUN COUNTER BY SIENNA AND JAEL’S ON THE MAT, HOLDING HER THROAT! Sienna’s not done as she whips Jael to the corner! TURNBUCKLE DROPKICK! Jael is slumped in the corner! Sienna tags in Kassidy who runs towards to opposite corner and right back at Jael for a low dropkick! Sienna follows up with one of her own! The Jaded Hearts pick her up! Looks like they’re going for a double Russian- JEAL COUNTERS WITH A MODIFIED RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP OF HER OWN TO BOTH HEARTS! WHAT QUICK THINKING BY ‘OUR LADY OF SORROWS!’

SG1: Raven is stomping on the apron, motivating her partner to stay in this match! Jael somehow is to first to get to her knees! Sienna is next, with Kassidy still feeling it from the beating she took earlier! Jael grabs Sienna by the hair and RUNS TO THE EDGE, TOSSING HER OUT BETWEEN THE ROPES!

Gia: That might be a smart move for Rosario, who’s leaning against the ropes, exhausted from everything that’s happened so far in this match! She’s making her way over to Raven, while using the ropes for support! The fans, the 70,000 plus inside the Kinetic Cathedral and the hundred thousand plus watching throughout the festival are focused on this match right now! Kassidy tries to intercept Jael with a clothesline- BACK BODY DROP counter by Jael and Kassidy falls to the outside! Jael’s desperate reflexes paid off! She’s struggling to her team’s corner and Tags in Raven Roberts! The Ravenous One runs along the apron as the ref is about to start her count on the Jaded Hearts! What is she doing? Raven’s going to the high rent district! She has her back turned to the Hearts who are holding onto each for support! They’re don’t notice what’s potentially about to happen! They might want to stay down-

SG1: RAVEN’S WINGS! SHE FLIES THROUGH THE AIR, LANDING ON BOTH JADED HEARTS WITH A TWISTING MOONSAULT PRESS! MY GOD THAT WAS GLORIOUS! SHE HIT THAT PERFECTLY WITH THAT DISTANCE AND HEIGHT!

(An instant replay is shown of Raven pulling off a twisting moonsault, hitting Sienna Jade and Kassidy Heart at the same time)

SG1: The tide has turned once more in this match! Jael rolls to the outside in support of her partner! Jesse Carlton’s not wasting anymore time to begin her count!

Ref: One!

Gia: The Crowe’s Nest picks up Kassidy and THROWS HER INTO THE STEEL STAIRS HEAD FIRST! Heart is laid out! Wait, who’s that on the stage!? It’s Braxton DeVil! His arm is still in a sling, but he’s making his way down the ramp! He doesn’t need to be out here!

Ref: Two!

SG1: Jael and Raven are too busy stomping on their opponent to pay much attention to the arrival of their mascot! Braxton gets their attention and points at the Spanish commentary table! He’s yelling at them to finish things here and now!

Ref: Three!

Gia: He’s right! If the Crowe’s Nest put Siena – the legal woman – through the table, there’s a chance they could retain their belts via countout! That’s the coward’s way to go, if you ask me!

SG1: Jael and Raven seem to respond to Braxton’s idea and are taking everything off the table as the Spanish announcer team is moving out of the way!

Ref: Four!

Gia: Raven rolls into the ring and back out to restart the count! Jael throws Sienna on to the table as Braxton jumps around with glee! Raven gets on top of the table as she and her partner lifts Sienna Jade in a crucifix position! Ay Dios mio! Are they really going to try something so heinous to secure a cheap victory in this match!? They hoist Sienna Jade high above their shoulders! They’re about to lay her out with a double crucifix powerbomb! A double Stig-

SG1: KASSIDY HEART OUT OF NOWHERE WITH A FLYING SPEAR FOR THE SAVE! OH MY GOD SHE JUST COLLIDED WITH JAEL ARCANA ROSARIO AS THEY GO FLYING INTO THE AUDIENCE!

Gia: WHAT THE HELL!?

SG1: RAVEN ROBERTS GOT KNOCKED BEHIND THE DESK AND SIENNA FALLS ONTO THE TABLE!! BRAXTON’S IN DISBELIEF! LUCKILY THE CROWD MOVED OUT OF THE WAY IN TIME!

(A replay shows Kassidy Heart making a running start before she turned and leaped at the Crowe’s Nest, catching Jael Arcana-Rosario with a spear, while Raven Roberts caught the brunt of her other shoulder. Sienna Jade bounces off the table and lands onto the floor. A second replay shows Kassidy and Jael landing into a sea of chairs, hitting their heads on the way down.)

Ref: One!

SG1: There is carnage all around us! Two wrestlers laid out in the audience! Two more stunned by the commentary table! This is absolute pandemonium and this is just the opening match for PAIN FOR PRIDE! The fans are losing their minds right now! Sienna is crawling towards the ring now! Braxton runs over to Raven Roberts and starts dragging her towards the ring! Referee Jesse Carlton is warning him to let go, that she must be able to make it under her own power! Braxton flips her the bird! Jesse Carlton becomes infuriated! She’s demanding that Braxton leaves the ringside! The Cuck isn’t budging! He’s actually refusing to listen to the ref!

Gia: He’s trying to force a disqualification! Jesse Carlton looks frustrated! She realizes what he’s trying to do! In an event of a DQ, the Crowe’s Nest will be able to keep their titles!

SG1: The ref is yelling at him to leave one more time- wait! Remy Skyfire is coming down the ramp! SHE’S HEADED STRAIGHT FOR BRAXTON! SHE’S HAD ENOUGH OF HIS CONSTANT INTERFERENCES! BRAXTON SEES HER AND MAKES A BREAK FOR IT! WAIT! REVY! IT’S REVY! SHE JUMPS OUT FROM THE CROWD AND TRIES TO CUT HIM OFF! BRAXTON FALLS OVER THE BARRICADE AND IS GETTING THE HELL OUT OF DODGE!

Ref: Two!

Gia: No longer distracted, Jesse Carlton continues counting! Sienna continues crawling to the ring! Raven’s struggling, but she’s doing what she can to make it back in time!

Ref: Three!

SG1: This match has gotten intense very fast! Kassidy Heart and Jael Rosario are still on the floor stirring! I could be mistaken but both women may have hit their heads against the chairs on impact! Sienna and Raven are inching closer!

Ref: Four!

Gia: Let me tell you something – Kassidy Heart risked it all to save her partner! The Hearts were nearly done for and she saved Sienna from being put through a table!

Ref: Five!

SG1: Don’t discount the assistance from outside sources! Both Remi and Revy were affected by the actions of the Crowe’s Nest! Remi was betrayed by Raven which led to the Hearts being number one contenders for the Empire Tag Team Championship! She took the shortcut and now everything might be for naught because Sienna’s close to getting back into that ring!

Ref: Six!

Gia: Sienna reaches the apron! She’s pulling herself up! Raven’s not that far behind!

Ref: Seven!

Gia: Sienna rolls back into the ring! She made it! Raven slides in! Both women made it!

(The commentators pause as the echo of the crowd roars through the arena)

SG1: Both legal women made it back to the ring to continue this match! Sienna and Raven are standing up, one gauging the other! Raven pushes Sienna, who returns the gesture with a SLAP ACROSS THE FACE! Raven kicks her in the gut and throws he across the ring! What power from Roberts! Sienna gets up and hops onto the second rope in the nearest corner! Possibling going for a moon- Raven collides with her from behind! Sienna ‘s bent over against the turnbuckle- RAVEN’S BEAK!! (Raven Edition) THE RUNNING KNEE HITS!! Raven pulls Sienna down and goes for the pin!

Ref: OOOONEEEEEEEEEEE!
TWWWOOOOOOOOOOO!

Gia: SIENNA KICKS OUT AT TWO! Raven looks surprised! She can’t believe what she’s witnessing! Sienna Jade is still in this match! Raven Roberts is PISSED! She climbs the nearest turnbuckle! It looks like she’s going for another Raven’s Wings! I doubt Sienna will be able to kick out of this-

SG1: KASSIDY HEART PUSHES RAVEN OFF THE TOP ROPE! She made it to the apron! Once again Sienna Jade’s guardian angel has come to the rescue! Sienna grabs both of Raven’s legs! Double leg drop! Kassidy climbs to the top! AIRHEART! Kassidy rolls away holding her head after hitting the flying headbutt! Sienna flips over Raven for a prawn hold-style pin!

Ref: OOOOOOOOONNNEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
TWWWWWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOO!
TH-

Gia: JAEL BREAKS THE PIN AT THE LAST SECOND!

(The crowd begins stomping their feet vigorously, yelling “This is awesome!”)

Gia: All four women are back in the ring! Ever since the match has begun it’s been an uphill battle for the Jaded Hearts! They’re doing whatever it takes to stay in this match! For every inch they take, the Crowe’s Nest is right there next to them! Sienna’s crawling over to Kassidy with tears in her eyes! She’s checking on her friend who took a bad fall after saving her with that spear! Jael’s checking on Raven, who’s trying to stand! Jesse Carlton is holding off the illegal countout to make sure each woman is okay!

SG1: One thing you can say about both teams- each partner cares about the other! Sienna and Jael realize they will not be able to finish this match without the help of their respective allies! Sienna is helping Kassidy to her feet! Raven’s already standing! The Jaded Hearts and Crowe’s Nest are meeting in the middle of the ring, barely holding back their disdain for one another! Jael pushes Sienna! Kassidy pushes Raven! Sienna pushes back, as does Raven! ALL FOUR COMPETITORS START UNLEASHING UPON EACH OTHER! RAVEN AND KASSIDY GOING BLOW FOR BLOW! SIENNA AND JAEL RAINING FOREARMS UPON EACH OTHER! Raven whips Kassidy to the ropes! Jael whips Sienna to the opposite side! Jaded Hearts duck under the clotheslines! SIENNA HITS RAVEN WITH A CHOP BLOCK! KASSIDY CLIPS JAEL WITH A LOW DROPKICK! The Jaded Hearts jump to their feet and starts firing shoot kicks to the midsection!

Crowd: ONE!
TWO!
THREE!
FOUR!
FIVE!

Gia: Both Hearts rear back for a final kick! The Crowe’s Nest ducks under both kicks! Raven and Jael grabs the legs and lifs the Hearts over their shoulders! Jael has Sienna in the argentine rack! CRUZ DE NAVAJAS!! RAVEN SLAMS KASSIDY DOWN WITH A HUNTRESS BOMB!!! This could be it for the Jaded Hearts! Jael is yelling for Raven to finish this! Her partner nods and hoists Sienna Jade in the air while she climbs the ropes! You can tell that fatigue is beginning to weigh down on the Crowes! Jael is perched high! Raven has Sienna ready as Rosario leaps!

SG1: CHOP BLOCK TO THE BACK OF RAVEN’S LEG BY KASSIDY HEART! JAEL CRASHES AND BURNS AGAINST THE CANVAS! CHRIST! This was the third time Gia, THE THIRD TIME KASSIDY HEART HAS COME TO THE RESCUE OF HER PARTNER! Jael is the first one up! P.C.S. AGAINST THE ROPES AND JAEL GOES TUMBLING OUT! Kassidy is yelling at Sienna to get up so they can finish this! Jade is on her hands and knees glaring daggers at Raven Roberts who’s holding her leg in agony!

Kassidy: (yells) TIME TO END THIS!

SG1: Sienna lifts Raven as Kassidy gets down one knee! I heard of this! They call this the Jaded Knee from Sydney! Sienna leaps with Raven! THE FACEBUSTER ON THE KNEE CONNECTS! Sienna covers Raven While Kassidy looks for Jael!

Ref: OOOOOOONNEEEEE!
TWWWWWWOOOOOOO!

Gia: JAEL SPRINGBOARDS OVER KASSIDY AND BREAKS THE PIN WITH A FOREARM SMASH! She landed that forearm right onto Sienna’s head! Kassidy catches Jael with a German Suplex! The waistlock is still applied! A second German! She’s not finished! A TRIPLE GERMAN SUPLEX FOR THE COMPLETE KASSPLODERPLEX COMBINATION!

SG1: Kassidy turns back to Raven and Sienna! She’s placing Sienna’s body over Raven for the cover!

Ref: OOOOOOONNEEEEEEE!
TWWWWWOOOOOOOO!
T-

Gia: RAVEN GETS THE SHOULDER UP!!!!!

SG1: Kassidy is in absolute disbelief! She’s practically pulling her hair out! She crawls over Sienna- DID SHE JUST SMACK HER OWN PARTNER ACROSS THE FACE!? SHE’S SHAKING SIENNA VIGOROUSLY WITH TEARS IN HER EYES!!

Kassidy: WE HAVE TO WIN THIS!! DAMN IT SIENNA WAKE THE F–K UP!

Gia: Sienna is holding her face in shock, but it seems like her tag partner is coming to! Raven us sitting up and the ref is ordering for Kassidy and Jael to return to their respective corners!

SG1: Things seem to be slowing down as Sienna picks up Raven. Ouch! That smack across the chest is going to leave a mark! Jael is getting to her feet! It looks like she pulled something from her outfit onto her hands! It’s a pair of brass knuckles! The ref doesn’t see it! Raven stands in front of the ref, holding her chest! Jael charges- KASSIDY HEART WITH THE CLOTHESLINE AND THE TWO GO TUMBLING OUT OF THE RING! Sienna grabs Raven! She ducks the spinning backhand! R! D! G! THE BRIDGING FISHERMAN’S SUPLEX CONNECTS!

Ref/Crowd: OOOOOONEEEEEEEEEEE!
TWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOO!
THRRRRREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

(DING! DING! DING!)

(“True Love” by CFO$ plays as Sienna Jade sits back, shocked at what just happened. Kassidy Heart slides into the ring and tackles her partner with a hug!)

Jasmine Peyton: Your winners by pinfall…and your NEW EAW EMPIRE TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS! Sienna Jade! Kassidy Heart! THE JADED HEARTS!

SG1: Holy crap, they did it! They actually did it!

Gia: The Jaded Hearts have overcome all odds in this match and became the new Empire Tag Team Champions! Say what you want about them, but this has to be the most magical moment in either of these women’s lives and this is the first match of Pain for Pride Festival!

SG1: Until the unification match, Sienna Jade is an EAW Empire Tag Team Champion and a Revolt Freeweight Champion! For however many hours, she is a double champ!

(The Jaded Hearts grab their newly won titles, holding them high for the crowd to see!)

SG1: We’re just one match into PFP and already we have new champions! And we’ve just gotten word Gia that in this opening match alone we have ALREADY surpassed the PEAK VIEWERSHIP from last year’s Pain for Pride 10 event!!! It’s amazing how much can change in just one year Gia!!!

Gia: Man, I’m excited about what’s to come next!

(Camera transitions backstage to Diamond Cage donning a new shirt that reads #FUCKARIAJAXON on the front, as he is in his locker room just by himself staring in the mirror before he hears someone coming)

Cage: Whoever you are, if you are smart, you’d get the fuck out of here!

???: Didn’t mean to be interrupting something but I haven’t been able to touch base with you since I’ve been back!

(Ronn Banks is shown walking into the camera view with a black hoodie on as the crowd ERUPTS with cheers)

Cage: What could you possibly have to say to me that will have any kind of LEVITY going into one of the biggest matches of my career? For all I know you probably want to see my downfall here tonight, doesn’t matter who is running Showdown or who is even running this company, you all want to see me fail and I’ll be successful despite you office jackoffs and you suit wearing dumbasses who sit in a circle at those board meetings and circle jerk each other until you nut the next fucking guy you want to be the champion because he’s the prototype of this fucking company.

(Ronn looks confused and breaks the fourth wall by looking straight into the hard camera before looking at Cage)

Ronn: :whoa: On the contrary, I don’t know if you noticed. But things aren’t the same, you don’t have to worry about some air headed bitch who calls herself a queen and a circle jerk stable that is really just the friends of Colton.

(Banks winks at the camera)

Ronn: Believe it or not but it’s the truth, I’ve always rooted for your success. Even when you were a rookie and was put on a brand not because you were good but just to fill up roster space. And look at you, you are now one of the staples of this company. You are in the main event of Pain for Pride and you’ve done it all because you’ve trusted the process, nobody knows this but when you were a rookie, aside from that coon ass guy you say was your mentor, the brains behind that operation was me. I helped you and tried to make sure that you would someday rise to your full potential. I came in here to tell you that I’m rooting for you as well tonight, as I did even when I was away from EAW because you’ve grown into something that nobody expected and you’ve far exceeded my expectations of what you would become.

Cage: Right….

Ronn: Listen to me, think about all those months you spent on Turbo longer than anyone else, think about how the world viewed you as unreliable because of your departures, hell nobody expected you to even be at this fucking show and you are in the main event. I’m not here to be in your way, I’m here to let you know that everything you’ve been through as come full circle and here you are now. Don’t let this opportunity slip through your fingers, good luck.

(Ronn Banks offers his hand as Cage looks hesitant to shake it)

Cage: I’m leaving this damn show. And you can bet your ass I’m leaving it as the EAW Champion

(Cage shakes Ronn’s hand before Ronn takes notice of his shirt)

Ronn: Hey I didn’t know you was apart of that wave too..

(Ronn zips down his hoodie reveals his very own #FUCKARIAJAXON t shirt as Cage smiles and camera transitions back to Kinetic Field)

(Highlight Video-Package showcasing the rivalry between the Heart Break Boy and Prince Of Phenomenal dating back their days in EGO, to their first encounter in a Last Man Standing Match which HBB was victorious in, to HBB returning at Wrath Of The Dragon and connecting with a Goldprint onto POP, before challenging him to a ladder match for the National Elite Championship)

(Camera pans to the Las Vegas, Motor speedway where Ladders are set up before panning to the National Elite Championship being hung above as we see Aaron Fitzpatrick standing in the ring)

Fitzpatrick: The following contest is for the NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPIONSHIP AND IT WILL BE CONTESTED IN A LADDER MATCH!!

(The stage lights turn off as the crowd’s anticipation begins to build until an instrumental of “Mercy” begins to play)

“Well, it is a weepin’ and a moanin’ and a gnashin’ of teeth”

“It is a weepin’ and a mournin’ and a gnashin’ of teeth”

“It is a — when it comes to my sound which is the champion sound”

“BELIEVE! BELIEVE!”

“O-O-O-O-O-Okay”

“Lamborghini Mercy, Your Chick She So Thirsty, I’m In that two seat lambo with your girl she trying jerk me”

(As Mercy continues to play a gold Lamborghini pulls out as the crowd begins to cheer and inside the Lamborghini is the Heart Break Boy)

Fitzpatrick: Introducing the challenger, from Ferguson Missouri! Weighing in at 220 POUNDDDDSSSSSSS!!
“The Prodigal Son” THE HEAAAAARRRTTTTT BREAKKKKKKKK BOYYYY!!!

(HBB parks the car and steps out donning all gold attire as he begins walking down the ramp and does his usual pre-match prayer as more pyro shoots up from the ramp)

Deadprez: Do you hear that song? Can you sense the mind games from the Heart Break Boy making that grand walk to another Pain For Pride? The old theme song of Project E.G.O playing HBB down to the ring tonight!

Pierre: You have to wonder if any of HBB’s antics is to counter the antics of how personal this rivalry has become when POP went as far as to interview HBB’s daughters, aside from the National Elite Championship, pride is certainly up for grabs as well.

(“Mercy” stops as HBB awaits his opponent)

(The arena has a sudden blackout before a strobe of black and blue lights begin to flicker back and forth, “If I Had A Heart” By Fever Ray suddenly begins to play as pyrotechnics shoot from the stage to the sky that read “Phenomenal” as POP makes his way out in a dark blue hoodie and new dark blue attire with the Revolt Middleweight Championship around his waist)

Fitzpatrick: Introducing the champion, from South Beach, Florida, weighing in at 220 POOOOOOOOOUNNNNDSSSSSS…. He is the “REVOLT” THEEEE PRINCE!!!! OOOOOOF PHEEEEEENOMENAL!!!!!

Deadprez: If we know anything about POP and even HBB, giving them ladders is like giving a candy to a baby, this is going to be more violent, at Pain for Pride 6 HBB defeated POP and our journey has led us to the rubber match!

Pierre: It’s not often you get Pain for Pride rematches but you are in for a personal one right here tonight!

(DING! DING! DING!)

Pierre: AND HBB IMMEDIATELY RUNS AT POP WHO WAS IN THE CORNER AND BEGINS BEATING ALL OVER HIM!! HBB putting the boots to POP, and stomping and then following it up with clubbing blows all over the top of him, HBB pulling POP by his hair, but POP immediately breaking out of HBB’s grasp and sends a BIG right hand to the face staggering HBB, HBB backing up and POP ONCE AGAIN WITH ANOTHER BIG RIGHT HAND! POP grabbing HBB by the head AND HE SLAMS HIS FACE OFF THE TOP TURNBUCKLE! HBB turned around by POP as POP grabs HBB by the arm and whips him to the opposite corner, HBB hitting the turnbuckle hard, AND POP RUNS FOR A CORNER SPLASH!! HBB MOVES!! POP collides with the turnbuckle head first! HBB grabbing POP and just sends him over the top rope!

HBB grabbing one of these ladders set up on the outside as he folds it down and begins to send it inside the ring, HBB quickly getting in the ring, and he’s looking to end this early!

Deadprez: HBB sets up the ladder, and he begins scaling, but POP, he’s rolling inside the ring as HBB is climbing, but HBB takes notice and drops down as POP rises to his feet, HBB chins up POP AND CONNECTS WITH A LOUD KNIFE EDGE CHOP! POP still standing, HBB follows it up AND DELIVERS ANOTHER STINGING KNIFE EDGE CHOP! The chest of POP turning a dark purple as HBB grabs POP AND LOOKS TO SEND HIM INTO THE SET UP LADDER! POP blocking the attempt though as he drives his knee into the mid-section of HBB, POP grabbing HBB and lifts him onto his shoulders! POP walks with him but HBB driving his elbow to the face as he drops off POP’s shoulders! HBB incoming at POP, BUT PELE KICK!! POP with a beautiful pele kick knocking HBB down! POP looking up at the ladder, but doesn’t elect to climb as he folds it back, and he begins placing the ladder in the corner. POP making his way back to HBB who is just rising up to his feet and POP connects with a big forearm shot to the face of HBB, and he follows it up with another big forearm shot! POP grabbing HBB before sending a boot to the mid-section! POP lifting HBB in a powerbomb like position! AND HE RUNS!! HE THROWS HBB INTO THE LADDER SET UP INTO THE CORNER!! HBB holding his lower back in agony as POP he grabs that ladder out of the corner and he sets it down on the canvas before pulling HBB back up by his hair!

Pierre: POP scooping HBB up AND HE SLAMS HIM ON THE LADDER!!! He holds HBB there so he doesn’t move as POP making his way out of the ring and onto the apron, HBB is prone on that ladder and POP, looking around at this mass of humanity here growing with anticipation! POP! SPRINGBOARDS 450 SPLASH ONTO HBB WHO IS LAYING ON THE LADDER!! HBB ROLLS OFF THE LADDER AS POP COLLIDES RIBS FIRST WITH THE LADDER!!! POP immediately up holding his ribs as HBB is just scrambling to his feet, he hooks POP AND DROPS HIM WITH A DDT!! HBB rolling himself outside of the ring, and pushes the timekeeper out of his chair and he folds his steel chair, HBB looks like he has something devious in mind as he slides in with that steel chair. HBB is stalking POP who is pulling himself up, HBB SWINGING THE STEEL CHAIR FOR POP’S HEAD! POP ducks, HBB drops the chair as POP backs himself into the ropes, HBB RUNNING AT POP!! BUT POP SENDS HIM OVER THE TOP ROPE AND CRASHING DOWN TO THE FLOOR!!

Neither man is moving after that dangerous, just high risk, just insane move by the gold driven obsessed icon! HBB though, STAGGERS UP TO HIS FEET AND COLLAPSES!! HBB may have taken himself out with that as the referee begins checking on POP! HBB though using the apron to pull himself up! HBB rolling himself inside the ring! And he’s hurting but he’s surely grabbing one of those ladders, and he begins setting it up! He’s finally sets it up and begins to climb, HBB scaling! Slowly, he’s rising up each rung of this ladder and it probably feels like an eternity but he is determined to get to the top! HBB IS THERE!! HBB IS AT THE TOP OF THIS LADDER, HE’S!! WAIT LOOK!! POP JUST PUSHED THAT REFEREE AWAY AND HE CLIMBS THE APRON!! HBB DOESN’T KNOW BUT POP!! SPRINGBOARDS OFF THE ROPES!! SPRINGBOARD ONTO THE BACK OF HBB!!! HE’S HOLDING ONTO THE BACK OF HBB!! HBB STRUGGLING BUT POP IS LOOKING TO CLIMB OVER THE BACK OF HBB TO GET THE NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPIONSHIP!!

Deadprez: HBB IS REACHING AS WELL!!! THIS IS HIGH DRAMA!! WHO IS GOING TO PULL IT DOWN!! WAIT!! OH NO!! HBB HE FALLS BACK ON PURPOSE WITH POP ON HIS BACK!!! BOTH MEN FALL FROM THAT 15FT HIGH LADDER BACKWARDS AND CRASH INTO THE CANVAS!!! Oh my god, neither man is moving! Both men crashing and burning but the National Elite Championship still dangling! POP though, POP has made his way to that steel chair! HBB though is on all floors trying to get up to his feet now! POP with the chair in hand is up on his feet and the back of HBB is exposed! POP BRINGS DOWN THE STEEL CHAIR HARD ONTO THE SPINE OF HBB!! HBB SHOUTS OUT IN PAIN AS POP ONCE AGAIN DRIVING THAT STEEL CHAIR INTO THE SPINE OF HBB!!! AND POP ISN’T LETTING UP AS HE CONTINUES TO UNLOAD WITH CHAIRSHOT! AFTER CHAIRSHOT! AFTER CHAIRSHOT! REPEATEDLY DELIVERING STEEL CHAIR SHOTS TO THE BACK OF HBB!!!

HBB, he makes his way to the ladder and this has to be the longest climb of his life but the relentless HBB is so gold driven and so determined to beat POP he doesn’t care about anything else but getting up this ladder. HBB is climbing, he’s climbing! HE’S AT THE TOP!! HBB HAS THE NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPIONSHIP!! HE’S DONE IT!!!

Deadprez: NO!! POP KICKS THAT LADDER FROM UNDERNEATH HBB!!!! HBB IS HANGING ON FROM THE TITLE!! HE’S HANGING ON FROM DEAR LIFE HIGH IN THE AIR!! ALL HBB HAS TO DO IS UNHOOK THE CHAMPIONSHIP!!! BUT HE CAN’T AS HE’S SWAYING IN THE AIR!!! HBB HANGING ON!!! TRYING TO PULL HIMSELF UP!! POP grabbing a ladder, AND POP!! HE THROWS THE LADDER AT THE DANGLING HBB!! AND IT CONNECTS AND HBB DROPS!!! HE FALLS HARD FROM HIGH IN THE AIR INTO THE CANVAS!! HBB is hurting! POP grabbing that ladder and he’s looking to use it as a weapon, HBB somehow still forcing himself back up to his feet! POP RUNS WITH THAT LADDER AND DRIVES IT INTO THE SKULL OF HBB!!! HBB IS OUT!! POP! POP setting that ladder up, but it’s not underneath the title, POP is scaling that ladder and begins making his way up! He’s an idiot, he needs to grab that championship, HBB is on a level we haven’t seen in awhile tonight! Firing on all causes, POP though doesn’t give a damn about what the hell I have to say as he is up! He makes his way to the top! POP HIGH!!! CHAPTER SIX!!! SPIRAL TAP OFF THAT LADDER!!!!

Pierre: HBB MOVES!!! JESUS CHRIST!! POP WENT CRASHING!!! HBB IS CUT OPEN FROM THE SHOT EARLIER WITH THAT LADDER!! BUT HE MANAGED TO MOVE!!

Deadprez: HBB looks up at that ladder that’s nowhere near the title and now HBB is climbing it as POP is wallowing in pain here! HBB come on, you are the veteran! It’s like he’s telling POP whatever you can do I can do better, HBB is climbing! HBB rising! He’s at the very top of that ladder! HBB IS HIGH!!! AND?!?! OH MY GOD!!! FALL FROM GRACE!!! HBB DELIVERS A FALL FROM GRACE FROM THE TOP OF THAT LADDER CRASHING INTO POP!! HBB TAKING A PAGE OUT OF THE MAN HE HEADLINED PAIN FOR PRIDE AGAINST!!! HBB TAKING A PAGE OUT OF THE LEGENDARY EXTREME ENIGMA!! WHAT A MOVE!! This crowd is going absolutely nuts at what they have seen, POP is writhing in pain! HBB, HBB is up! And he dragging that set up ladder, he drags it to the center underneath the National Elite Championship. THIS IS EVERYTHING HBB CAME BACK FOR! THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH PROJECT EGO, IT’S ABOUT GETTING GOLD ONCE AGAIN!! AND HE’S A FEW RUNGS FROM DOING IT!! HBB CLIMBING UP!! BUT HE IS IN SO MUCH PAIN! HE’S BUSTED OPEN! HIS BODY HAS WELTS!!

(“If I Had A Heart” By Fever Ray hits as POP drops off the ladder and is helped to his feet as he raises the National Elite Championship high in the air as the crowd gives applause and a standing ovation to both men)

Fitzpatrick: HERRRREEE IS YOUR WINNNER… AND STILLL NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPIONNNN!! THE PRINNCCEEEEE OFFFFF PHENOMENALLLLL!!!

Deadprez: Jesus christ, what a ladder match, what an effort by the Heart Break Boy! He literally did everything and it wasn’t enough to take the championship away from POP! You can see the disappointment in his face as he is helped up to his feet by ringside officials!

Pierre: POP! Retains and Proves he truly is the revolt! But you have to wonder, where does the Heart Break Boy go from here?

(One last shot of POP celebrating with the National Elite Championship along with the REVOLT Middleweight Championship, along with HBB pushing the ringside officials and walking under his own power)

(“The Jungle” by Zayde Wolfe plays as a video package is shown highlighting Andrei Sokolova, TLA, and Hurricane Hawk’s REVOLT Championship wins, it then shows Andrea’s rise to prominence on Empire and her being announced for the match. It shows Andrei, TLA, and Hawk respectfully qualifying and successfully defending their championships in multiman matches. A flashback of Voltage Commissioner Matt Daniels announcing the relinquishment of REVOLT’s titles following the Openweight match.)

(Rebecca Sawyer is seen standing in the middle of the ring.)

Rebecca Sawyer: Ladies and Gentleman, please welcome to the ring…. THE FOUNDER OF REVOLT! PRO COMBAT…. MIKKEEEE SILLVVERRRRR!

(“Danger” by Migos & Marshmello plays as Mike Silver walks onto the stage. He enters the ring as the crowd cheers him on.)

Nick Angel: Quite the ovation for the founder of REVOLT! Pro Combat! Mike Silver rose up the ranks in the independent scene fairly quick as the driving force behind REVOLT. He lead the company to heights that hadn’t been witnessed in such a short period of time since well… EAW back in 2008! He landed the attention of the EAW founder, Ronn Banks, who invested in his company and things just blew up from there. A Fox Sports deal, and eventually a huge pay day once EAW purchased the rights to the company. He had never made himself visible in the public eye, but for an event of this magnitude he has decided to show up and witness the fruits of his labor live and in person!

Kawajai: That’s right Nick, his patented weight class system was unlike one never seen before in this business. When the championships for each division made their way to EAW, it made for some interesting defenses. But tonight marks the last time these championships from REVOLT! Pro Combat will be seen here in EAW.

Nick Angel: That’s right. After today, they will be no more.

(The Openweight Championship graphic flashes across the screen.)

Rebecca Sawyer: The following contest is a Fatal 4-Way Match for the Openweight Championship. The winner of this championship has the opportunity to defend the title against all four brand. If successful, they will have the chance to relinquish the title in exchange for a world championship opportunity.

(‘Ambitionz az a Ridah’ by Tupac begins to play as the crowd erupts. TLA emerges on the stage with the REVOLT! Welterweight Championship in his hands. He entertains the crowd as he slides into the ring. He holds up his championship one last time. He then turns to Mike Silver. He looks down at the championship as he hands it to Mike Silver.)

Rebecca Sawyer: Introducing first, from The Poon Palace in Miami, Florida, weighing 210 pounds… HE IS THE REVOLT! WELTERWEIGHT CHAMPION…. TTTTT….LLLLLL…..AAAAAAAAAA!

Nick Angel: TLA is a highly decorated elitist who’s list of accomplishments span from NWF to EAW to REVOLT. Can he bring that Openweight Championship back to the Poon Palace?

Kawajai: He has a whole list of accomplishments here in EAW, and that list may be ready to grow longer.

( ‘No Regrets’ By Pusha T plays for a moment before transitioning into ‘Headlines’ by Drake, as it blasts all throughout the arena as Hurricane Hawk emerges on the stage to a mixed reaction from the crowd. He holds the REVOLT! Light Heavyweight Championship over his shoulder. The crowd continues to roar with boos and cheers. Hawk slides into the ring walks to Mike Silver to hand over his title.)

Rebecca Sawyer: Now introducing, from Oakland, California, weighing 225 pounds… HE IS THE REVOLT! LIGHT HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION! HURRIICANNNNNEEEE HAWWWWWKKKKKK!

Nick Angel: Hurricane Hawk, the multiple time world champion and Hall of Famer. One of the greatest to ever do it and he has been on a career resurgence as of late, no pun intended. Tonight would be the ultimate way to cap off a great comeback story!

Kawajai: There’s no denying that. Hawk has quite the decorated career and has always been a formidable opponent and that will certainly be on display here at Pain for Pride Festival. He’s putting everything on the line tonight, there’s no turning back for him he says.. the implications are certainly dire.

(‘Roll With Me’ by Charli XCX as the crowd erupts. Andrea Valentine runs out onto the stage with her energy on full display. She runs down to the ramp and slides into the ring. She jumps to the ring ropes to look as the huge crowd. She then gets back down and looks around the ring.)

Rebecca Sawyer: From Orlando, Florida, weighing 110 pounds… AANNDDDDRREEEAAAA VALLLEENNNTIINNEEEEEEEE!

Nick Angel: Andrea is representing Empire here tonight. She might be the underdog going into this match, but she was put here for a reason. The last person to hold this title was a female competitor, Cameron Ella Ava. Andrea would love nothing more than to follow in those footsteps. Could she bring the title to Empire?

(‘Pray For Me’ by G-Eazy begins to play as the crowd gives a mostly positive reaction. Andrei Sokolova walks out onto the stage confidently with the REVOLT! Heavyweight Championship in his hands as he holds it up in the air. He enters the ring and looks at his opponents before turning to Mike Silver. He then hands him the REVOLT! Heavyweight Championship as Mike Silver how holds all three REVOLT! Pro Combat! Championships in his hands. Mike Silver the exits the ring and heads backstage with all the championships in hand.)

RA: Finally, from Doncaster, England weighing 240 pounds…. HE IS THE REVOLT! HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION…. ANNDDREEEEIII SOKKOOOLOVVAAAAA!

Nick Angel: Andrei Sokolova was highly successful in REVOLT! and he is surely seeking to continue that trend by conquering this formidable task of winning the Openweight Championship. It’s not a reach at all to say that this man was the face of the company. He held that title high and proud and even challenged Chris Elite’s position as the top champion on Voltage. If I was a betting man this would be my pick!

Kawajai: All REVOLT! Champions are ready to replace the titles they just gave to Mike Silver with the Openweight Championship, and Andrea Valentine is seeking to bring that title home Empire.

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Nick Angel: HERE WE GO! We are underway with the Openweight Championship match here at Pain for Pride Festival! Last year, Ryan Marx became the first Openweight Champion at this very event!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Nick Angel: ANDREA VALENTINE WINS THE OPENWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP! I’M IN COMPLETE SHOCK! SHE ROLLED HAWK UP FROM BEHIND! SHES THE NEW OPENWEIGHT CHAMPION!

(‘Roll With Me’ by Charli XCX begins to play as the crowd erupts in cheers. Andrea Valentine sits on her knees in the middle of the ring with a shocked but excited expression as the referee hands her the Openweight Championship. She looks at it for several moments before getting to her feet. She holds it up in celebration. She then goes to each corner and holds it up as the crowd cheers her on.)

Rebecca Sawyer: HERE IS YOUR WINNER… AND THE NEW OPENWEIGHT CHAMPION…. ANNDDDREEEAAAA VALLLENNTINNNNEEEEE!

Nick Angel: SHE DID IT!!!! EMPIRE’S OWN ANDREA VALENTINE HAS CAPTURED THE OPENWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP!!!! THIS IS A CAREER DEFINING MOMENT FOR THE YOUNG LADY AS SHE CANNOT BELIEVE IT HERSELF!!!! WHAT A MATCH!

Kawajai: All participants in this match came SO close to winning this match but in the end it was Andrea Valentine’s last second quick thinking that made the difference. Hawk hit that super kick and was about to pin TLA. That’s when Andrea seized the opportunity to get the roll up pin!!

Nick Angel: If Andrea can defend the title against competitors from all four brands, she can cash it in for a World Championship opportunity. Maybe she’ll be the first to do it successfully. There’s a very good chance that the power dynamics on Empire could be changing very soon. Congratulations to her!

Nick Angel: Andrea Valentine pulls off a huge victory here at Pain for Pride Festival. She definitely earned it. Hats off to TLA, Andrei Sokolova, and Hurricane Hawk, this was a match that truly came down to the wire and one little slip up was all it took to cost one the match, in the end they fell JUST short.

(Andrea Valentine exits the ring as she holds up the Openweight Championship while she makes her way up the stage. She then heads backstage. The camera then focuses on Hurricane Hawk alone in the ring. He’s sitting on his knees as he looks up and around the arena. He looks around at the fans as he continues to take the moment in. He slowly stands up and looks around one more time as the fans begin to cheer him. They give him a standing ovation. He walks to the ropes and looks back at the ring. Hawk then exits the ring as he slowly walks up the ramp as he glances at the crowd. He stops at the stage and turns around so he can look back at the crowd as they begin to chant his name.)

Crowd: HAWK! HAWK! HAWK! HAWK! HAWK!

(He smiles as he waves to them. Hawk then turns around and heads through the curtains to get backstage as the crowd continues to chant his name.)

(The camera fades backstage to the locker room of Scott Diamond. He’s shown sitting in a chair, laser focused as he stares at his Answers World Championship which sits a top of another chair. His trance is broken by a knock on the door to which he doesn’t reply to but after a few seconds the knock his heard again)

Diamond: Who is it?

???: You know who it is.

(The voice is familiar to Scott, is startles him as he stands up from his chair and makes his way over to the door. He twists the knob open to reveal the Commissioner of Sunday Night Voltage, Matt Daniels)

Diamond: Yeah?

Daniels: Yeah what?

Diamond: What do you want?

Daniels: Oh what the hell did I ever do to you, Scott? Huh? Why is there all this… animosity between us?

Diamond: Not now.

(Diamond turns his attention away from Daniels and sits back down but Daniels enters the room closing the door behind him)

Daniels: Oh I know, don’t worry… those were mostly rhetorical questions, I didn’t expect you have answers to them… I know you have bigger things on your mind, that’s what I’m here about actually.

(Diamond looks up, shooting him a glance, verbally telling him to continue)

Daniels: Right. You… are a product… of me. Really, my only product here. You were the only person I ever took under my wing, I’m not generous like that but I saw something in you… what is that now… seven years ago? Seven years ago I knew you were the future of this business.

Daniels: Never thought I could be so wrong.

(Diamond immediately stands up, getting in the face of Daniels)

Daniels: What? You’re gonna tell me I’m wrong. You’re gonna tell me you achieved your full potential? Please, that’s laughable. If that was actually the case you’d have a list of accomplishments that dwarfed the likes of Impact and DEDEDE.

Daniels: I feel like you have the opportunity to some real things tonight, a lot of things. And you don’t even realize it.

Diamond: Oh, I don’t?

Daniels: No, you don’t. This is a legacy making night. This is a legacy turn around night, especially for you in the main event. I know I’m not supposed to be playing favorites, it probably goes against some ethical code in my contract but I’m pulling for you tonight. This is your chance to right all your wrongs.

(Daniels is about to head out of the locker room but turns back around for one more thing)

Daniels: And to make me look good. Don’t mess up.

(Daniels exits, despite the conversation the look of focus never left Diamond’s face, he sits back down in the chair and begins tying his boots as the camera fades out)

(A montage of the events leading to Zakkii’s final match at Pain for Pride is shown. From Zakkii’s announcement, to losing Azumi Goto as her final opponent, to Cameron Ella Ava accepting her open challenge. Scenes from their press conference is played, ending with both women facing each other)

(DING! DING! DING!)

Jasmine Peyton: The following match is scheduled for one fall! First! Making her way to the ring…

(“ULTRAnumb” (Exterminated Remix) — Blue Stahli plays as the lights dim a bit as acrobatics from Circ Du Soleil with diamond encrusted leotards are showing flipping and flying around diamond chandeliers. Some of the Circ Du Soleil performers are spinning and switching from one chandelier to another in unison as their leotards are lighting up. Others are doing out of the ordinary tricks that would be impossible for the average human being to attempt.)

Jasmine: From Los Angeles, CA! Weighing in at 130 lbs…”THE GODDESS OF PAIN FOR PRIDE! CAMERON! ELLA! AVA!

SG1: Cameron Ella Ava has answered the challenge. And now she finds herself face to face with Haruna “Zakkii” Sakazaki in what will be her final Pain for Pride! Cam wasn’t shy about admitting that she wouldn’t take pleasure in ruining Zakkii’s fairytale ending, but will not hesitate to give this match her all!

Gia: This woman has held more titles than most of EAW’s Hall of Famers! While she may have lost to Zakkii before, this is a different Cameron Ella Ava who will be fighting tonight!

(This goes on for twenty seconds until in between the group of chandeliers, a huge diamond begins slowly spinning around and it ascends down from the heavens. The minute it goes down, the door opens as a boot takes a step down. As soon as the boot takes a step down, a diamond path to the ring appears as it glistens up the ramp all the way down the ring.)

(Another boot steps out from the diamond as it reveals to be Cameron Ella Ava, who steps out wearing black leather pants with a diamond-encrusted top with a black blazer that reads “Goddess” on the back with diamonds. There is a black train on the back of her blazer, which flows with each step she takes. On the top of her head, she has her hair wavy as she wears a ringleader top hat. She is being assisted by some of the strongmen from Circ Du Soleil as they carry her up on their shoulders down the long ramp.)

Jasmine: And her opponent!

(All the lights in the arena turned off as Las Vegas Motor Speedway goes completely pitch black. Then there’s one little light coming from the entranceway as we see the Ouendan/Cheering Squad leader holding blue lightstick in each of his hands. He then starts to get in his position and yell some cheering words.)

Iitai koto ga arundayo
(There is something I want to say)
Yappari Zakkii-sama kawaii dayo
(Zakkii-sama is indeed really cute)
Oretachi no INFURUENSAA daze
(She’s our Influencer)
Yatto mitsuketa ohimesama
(And we found our princess)

Ore ga umaretekita riyuu
(The way I’m going to live)
Sore wa Zakkii-sama deautame
(Only for just one Zakkii-sama)
Ore to isshoni jinsei ayumou
(We’re going to give our lives)
Sekaide ichiban aishiteru
(To our world’s only love)
AISHITERU!!!
(I LOVE YOU!!!)

(The Ouendan leader is pointing towards the stage as the other Ouendan squads, about 100 of them all across the stage and the ramp start to turn their lightstick on and pointing towards one point. “Azure Sky” begins to play as Zakkii slowly come up to the arena from below the point where all the lightstick pointing too. The spotlight is on her as she looks wearing a long dress while singing her own theme song)

“Fumidaseru sono-te o totte
tomoni koete ano AZURE SKY”

SG1: Ladies and gentlemen. Model, actress, singer, and wrestler.

Jasmine: From Kyoto, Japan! Weighing in at 110lbs…Zakkii!!!

Gia: This is it…her final match, and it looks like she’s going out with style!

(As she finishes that verse, all the crowd in the arena turning on their blue lightstick while the arena remains dark and the only light is coming only from these lightsticks. As the intro hits, Zakkii grabs her dress and quickly tear it off and throw it, revealing her dark blue ring gear. The Ouendan squads begin to do the Wotagei (lightstick dance) while giving an idol-esque chant as the song keep going)

URYA OII!!! URYA OII!!! URYA OI!!! URYA OI!!!

AAAAAAA…… YOSH IKUZOOO!!!

TAIGA!!!

FAIYAA!!

SAIBAA!!

FAIBAA!!

DAIBAA!!

JYAA JYAA!!

(Zakkii now starts to walk across the ramp while the Ouendan squads still doing their lightstick dances and yell some chants as the song keeps on going)

SG1: One thing you have to appreciate about Zakkii- she knows how to keep things light-hearted even in the most serious of moments.

(Zakkii climbs into the ring and takes off the rest of her entrance attire to reveal her ring gear. “Azure Sky” fades as Zakii and Cam meet in the center of the ring)

(DING! DING! DING!)

SG1: Jesse Carlton calls for the bell! Cameron Ella Ava vs Zakkii and what will be her final match in EAW! The crowd is on their feet as Cam and Zakkii lock-up! Zakkii is trying to match power for power, but Cam is showing just how strong she really is! Zakkii maneuvers around Cameron for the waist lock- Cameron shifts her posture and counters with a hip toss! Zakkii quickly rolls to her feet, forcing Cameron to stop in her tracks!

Gia Cervantes: There’s the experience of Cam meeting the awareness of Zakkii! Both women know how to change tactics on the fly! This isn’t their first time doing battle, and beating Cam is something Zakkii has done before!

SG1: Ava has her hand out, offering for Zakkii to come closer. Zakkii slowly gets up and engages in another tie-up! Zakkii quickly goes under for the hammerlock! Cam attempts a counter but Zakkii transitions to a wrist lock, maintaining control! The sheer power of Cam takes Zakkii down to the mat with a headlock! Zakkii instinctively counters with a headscissors! Cam arches her back and breaks out of the hold! Zakkii evades the double stomp to her legs just in time!

Gia: The fans are definitely enjoying the opening minute to this match! Zakkii is going to have to take her time if she wants to get the best of Killa Cam!

SG1: I think this is a fact Cam herself realizes judging from the look of confidence on her face! The idol gets to her feet and adopts a shoot stance, opting for a possible striking strategy! You can tell from Cam’s shift in stance, she’s ready to defend herself! Zakkii goes for a couple of jabs! Cam keeps her stance and remains firm! She can tell her opponent is testing the distance!

Gia: That’s not stopping Zakkii from going through with her strategy! Cam checks a couple of low kicks! Zakkii chances it with a rabbit punch right into the chest of Cam! The Goddess herself falls onto her bottom, shocked at Zakkii’s martial prowess! Basement dropkick by Zakkii! She follows up with a grounded arm lock- Cam sneaks a small package!

Ref: OOOOONEEEE!

Gia: Zakkii kicks out, creating some distance between her and Ava!

SG1: That’s the genius of Cameron Ella Ava; she knew Zakkii was trying to overwhelm her with a relentless offense and wanted to create some separation between them both! Zakkii’s surprised, but quickly composes herself! She races at Cam! Sje ducks under the short-arm clothesline! Cam dodges the rebound dropkick! WAIT! Cam has Zakkii’s leg! It looks like she’s going for the Ava Lock early, but Zakkii kicks her away! She jumps to her feet! Surprise wheelbarrow bulldog! I don’t think even Cam saw that one coming!

Gia: Zakkii has a few surprises of her own! Never underestimate the ability of the woman who once held the Specialist Championship and defeated a former Vixen’s Champion and the CURRENT Women’s World Champion one after the other! Zakkii picks up Cam and hits a plam strike! Low kick to the thigh! Cam ducks the enzuigiri! Zakkii’s leg is still- OH MY GOD WHAT COUNTER WITHIN A COUNTER! ZAKKII SOMEHOW CAUGHT CAM IN A LEG DDT WITH ONE HAND ON THE MAT!

SG1: It looks like somehow Zakkii balanced herself on one hand and connected with a modified leg ddt! She picks up Cam and whips her to the corner! Back body drop by Cam who countered the charging attack! Zakkii lands on the apron! She slams Cam’s face against the turnbuckle and follows up with a rope-assisted kick! Cameron falls to the mat! Zakkii springboards! Cam’s legs were up to block the body splash!

Gia: It looks like The Goddess is wasting no time has she climbs to her feet, with Zakkii’s hair in her fist! You can see the look of frustration on her face! Elbow smash to the back of Zakkii’s head! The idol falls to her hands and knees! Cam picks her up! Vicious knee to the face and she is knocked a foot away! Cam grabs Zakkii around her waist and DEADLIFTS HER INTO A BRIDGING NORTHERN LIGHTS SUPLEX!

Ref: OOOONEEEEEEEEEE!!
TTWWWWWWOOOOOO-

SG1: Zakkii kicks out! This is the power of Cameron Ella Ava ladies and gentlemen! Her strength rivals that of powerhouses such as Stephanie Matsuda and Astraea Jordan! Cam spits at the mat, and starts pushing her foot into Zakkii’s face several times! Despite having a friendly disposition in the week leading up to PFP, Big Match Cam is a different kind of animal. She’s fiercely competitive and will do whatever it takes to win!

Gia: I’m sure Zakkii got the memo just like everyone else who came across Cameron’s path! Zakkii is backed into a corner by force! The ref is warning Cam, who’s paying her no mind! She kicks at Zakkii’s head several times and picks her up by the hair!

Crowd: WOOOOOOOOO!

Gia: That was one hell of a chop from Cam! You can already see Zakkii’s chest turn ready from just one overpowered knife edge chop to the chest!Cam starts hammering away at Zakkii’s face, relentlessly striking the face with her forearms! One! Two! Three! Four! Cam runs to the opposite corner and comes charging back! DOUBLE KNEES TO THE FACE! Zakkii’s slumped in the corner! The last thing she wants to do is be at Cameron’s mercy like this!

SG1: Ava lifts Zakkii and seats her on the top turnbuckle! Cameron climbs to the second turnbuckle! It looks like she wants to end this early! She’s trying to lift Zakkii into an argentine rack! She might be going for an avalanche Breaking Barriers rack attack! Zakkii slips out! SUPER BACK SUPLEX BY ZAKKII!

Gia: That was quick thinking on Zakkii’s part! She knew what she had to do to get her out of a bad situation! Both women are on their backs, trying to recover! As much as Cam wants to win, she has to consider that she’s double-booked for Pain for Pride! She has to be mindful of how much energy she uses for this match! Zakkii is crawling to the center of the ring while Cam is using the ropes for support. Zakkii turns to her opponent and I don’t know if I like that wild look in her eyes- FLYING TRAIN WRECK CLOTHESLINE AND BOTH WOMEN GO TUMBLING OUT OF THE RING! WOW!

SG1: The Influencer took a chance and made a call she thought could turn the tide of this match in her favor! Somehow she was able to land on her feet after the gamble paid off! The best possible way to defeat Cam is to keep her guessing!

Gia: Well Zakkii doesn’t look like she’s done as she slides into the ring! Zakkii starts dancing for the crowd! She then runs and rebounds off the ropes! Cam is getting up- MOONLIGHT SONATA HANDSPRING PLANCHA!!!! I NEVER SEEN ZAKKII FLY LIKE THIS!

SG1: Zakkii hits the mark as she lands on top of Cam! This time around, she took a brunt of the fall! Behind Cam’s face lies a bit of confusion! She’s probably trying to figure out how she can get ahead of Zakkii!

Ref: One!

Gia: Jesse Carlton has begun the count! Zakkii picks up Cam and slams her face against the apron! Rarely do we see Zakkii this ferocious! She seems absolutely determined to walk out of here with a victory! She grabs Cam- AVA TOSSES HER INTO THE STEEL STAIRS!

Ref: Two!

SG1: Zakkii’s shoulders took a bad bump as she’s rolling around, clutching it! Cam seems to sense blood in the water! The adrenaline seems to be kicking in as she darts like a cheetah and delivers a low dropkick to Zakkii’s hurt shoulder!

Ref: Three!

Gia: Another thing about Cam is that she has the potential to work through matches under tremendous amounts of pain! Look at her match with Scott Diamond for the Hall of Fame Championship! Cam lifts up Zakkii by the legs…AY DIOS MIO! ALABAMA SLAM AGAINST THE RING APRON! She nearly broke The Joshi in half!

Ref: Four!

SG1: Like I said – this is the vicious side of Cameron Ella Ava! The side of her that wants to win no matter what! She has this glazed look in her eyes…it looks like unadulterated fury! You can tell by the grin on her face that she loves that Zakkii is putting up a fight! She rolls Zakkii back into the ring and instead of making a cover, She walks over to a member of the EAW Universe! There’s a girl wearing a very familiar pair of Kanye shades!

Ref: Five!

Gia: Is she reaching into her sock!? Cam pulls out a twenty and offers it to the little girl who takes it and gives her the shades! I’m surprised they still make those…

SG1: They don’t. Cam has them on and climbs to the apron. She smiles at the crowd and does the signature pose of the former EAW Women’s World Champion! Why is Cam mocking her!?

Gia: I know what she’s doing. A move she doesn’t do often…

SG1: Cam climbs to the top rope as Zakkii slowly gets up, screaming in pain as she’s holding her lower ba-

Gia: GLASS CEILING! CAMERON JUST HIT ZAKKII WITH THE GLASS CEILING TOP ROPE STUNNER! SHE LIFTS BOTH LEGS FOR THE PIN!

Ref: OOOOOOOOOONNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
TWWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
THH-

Gia: ZAKKII KICKS OUT!! SHE’S STILL IN THIS!!!

SG1: Cam has quite the looks of surprise on her face! She doesn’t know how her opponent was able to kick out after receiving a vicious beating during the past couple of minutes!

Crowd: LET’S GO ZAK-KII!

Crowd: KIL-LA CAM!

Gia: Both of these women are doing whatever they can to get through this match! Zakkii’s will to survive is unlike any other! Cam picks up her opponent- AND SMACKS HER ACROSS THE FACE! As if that lit a firecracker under her, Zakkii’s laughing! Cam is staring incredulously at her opponent who was just on the receiving end of one of her most potent signatures! You can tell she’s in pain, but she seems to be enjoying the punishment! Cam gets down on one knee and smacks Zakkii again! The Influencer is still laughing! She returns the gesture with SMACK OF HER OWN! Cam falls back, looking shocked! Zakkii starts crawling to her, muttering something I can’t make out!

SG1: Sounds like Japanese…like I think it’s “Is that all you got?”

Gia: Cam must’ve taken a class in the language because you can see her nostrils flaring! Cam slaps Zakkii again! The idol returns the favor! Cam slaps her for a third time- AND ZAKKII RAISES HER ONE MORE SMACK! Their foreheads are against each other as they get to their feet! How is Zakkii even aware of what’s going one!? Cam starts firing off a series of machine gun elbow smashes! Zakkii is returning the favor! This is a battle of wills right now! Somehow Zakkii is getting the upper hand! She continues with a series of lighting quick palm strikes and face smacks! DANCE FLOOR SHREDDAR! Zakkii jumps back for the Lapis Lazuli Tornado Roundhouse! Cam slides under the attack! She hits the ropes! ZAKKII MATRIX EVADES THE GODDESS TOUCH ENZUIGIRI!!!! WAIT IT WAS A SETUP!!! CAM QUICKLY RECOVERS AND HAS HER IN THE SNAPMARE POSITION! BITCH CAMP!!! SHE JUST TOOK ZAKKII TO BITCH CAMP!!! CAM GOES FOR THE COVER

Ref/Crowd: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
TWOOOOOOOOOOOO!
THRRRRRE-

SG1: ZAKKII KICKS OUT!!!!! ZAKKII KICKS OUT AT TWO-AND-A-HALF!!!!!

(Cam is lying on her back in disbelief as the crowd begins to lose their minds. Zakkii looks half conscious…nearly dead to rights)

SG1: MAMA MIA! What we’re seeing here is a will to win! Zakkii wants nothing more than to end her career on a good note! Cam is wondering what she has to do to take Zakkii down! She picks her up and starts yelling at her!

Cameron: I’m sorry old friend! Your story ends HERE!

SG1: Cam lifts Zakkii in a fireman’s carry! She’s going for the BREAKING BARRIER’S 2.0!!! SHE SWING FOR THE STUNNER! ZAKKII FLIES OUT OF HER GRASP ON LANDS- IN EXCELSIS!!!!

Gia: NO! ZAKKII EVADES!! SHE HAS THE WRIST!!! CAM SWINGS FOR A CLOTHESLINE! ZAKKII DUCKS UNDER! VERITAS!!!!! SOMERSAULT INVERTED DDT! ZAKKII STUMBLES OVER TO THE CORNER! SHE’S NOT FINISHED!? SHE’S CLIMBING THE NEAREST TURNBUCKLE! WHAT DOES SHE HAVE IN MIND!? SHE WANTS TO END THINGS ON A HIGH NOTE! SHE IS AT THE TOP AND MAKES A GUN GESTURE TO HER HEAD, A TRIBUTE TO EXTREME ENIGMA!! GLORRRRRIIIIAAAAAA SWANTON BOMB!!!! ZAKKII MAKES THE COVER!!!

Ref/Crowd: OOOOOONEEEEEEEEEEEE!
TWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

(DING! DING! DING!)

(“Azure Sky” plays as Zakii rolls off of her opponent, exhausted)

Jasmine: Your winner by pinfall in her FINAL match…”THE INFLUENCER” HARUNA “ZAKKII” SAKAZAKI!!!

SG1: SHE DID IT! ZAKKII HAS BEAT THE ODDS AND DEFEATED THE GODDESS OF EAW!!!

Gia: OH MY GOD! IT MUST BE RAINING BECAUSE MY EYES ARE WET RIGHT NOW! SHE DID IT…SHE GAVE WHAT HAD TO BE ONE OF THE GREATEST PERFORMANCES OF HER CAREER!

SG1: I have to say…man! I hate to see her go! I mean…wow! She said she was going to end this on a good note and I have to say…I love happy endings!

(Fans are chanting “please don’t go!” as Zakkii gets to her feet with the ref raising her hand. A few moments later, she walks over to Cam, pulling her up. She checks on the Unified tag champ and the two embrace, both with tears in their eyes!)

Gia: What sportsmanship from both women! Huh!? Look at all those streamers!

(Streamers rain from above as Haruna and Cam bow to the crowd from all sides of the ring. The crowd starts to chant “Please don’t go!” as Zakkii waves to everyone with tears in her eyes. Cam slowly moves to the edge and sits on the second rope, allowing her Haruna to leave in class. The Japanese wrestler climb out of the ring and walk up the ramp, waving at everyone. She turns around to stare at Cam, who smiles and gives Zakkii a salute. Zakkii smiles and bows to Cam and to the rest of the audience before she makes her way up the ramp one last time.)

( Camera heads backstage in the Circuit Grounds tent — the largest tent on Earth — where the entire EAW roster, along with many of the staff and personnell are roaming about. )

( DESCRIPTION OF THE BACKSTAGE AREA: Providing us a look at talent doing hair and make up, interviews with the press. We see different reaction shots of male and female Elitists sitting together watching and reacting to matches from earlier in the night as well as eating at luxury catering, training & getting in their exercise. We see many different rooms as well as various trailers, and there are locations such as a spa/lounge, party room, mess hall, family rooms, private locker rooms, medical trainers and many other features that would normally be found in a backstage environment. )

( We pan to the interview section of backstage, where Max A. Million is standing by. )

Max A. Million: It’s been a record breaking Pain for Pride so far, as Night 1 of this event has already surpassed every single Pain for Pride to make this years Pain for Pride the highest grossing event in EAW history! We have also set an attendance record with Kinetic Field along holding 130,000 viewers!

Another young lady tonight has made herself a part of history by capturing the EAW Openweight Champion against three very game champions. Ladies and Gentlemen please welcome, ANDREA VALENTINE!

( Andrea Valentine walks into frame with tears in her eyes and a big smile on her face, as she lugs along the EAW Openweight Championship over her tiny shoulder. )

Max: Andrea obviously an emotional night for you this evening, give us your reactions.

( Andrea is overwhelmed with tears of joy and Max attempts to console her. Andrea’s voice breaks as she talks. )

Andrea Valentine: I just wanted to say thank you to Haruna and Cameron for that epic match you guys just put on. Thank you both for the years of sacrifice you put into EAW, you’re two of the people who inspired me to do this. I also wanted to say, to Brody…

( Andrea looks up in the sky with tears flowing down her cheeks. )

Andrea: Meagan, I know you can see me now my love. I want to say thank you so much. Thank you for being the reason why I do this. This is for you. When there were moments this season where I thought I’d never be able to accomplish my dreams I thought about how you accomplished yours and it kept me going. I would never have this title without you. I watched you walk into this show last year with the EAW Specialist Title with the presence of a queen. And while I know one day you and I will see each other again, I’m so happy to be able to join you as a champion in the ranks of EAW. I love you M, always and forever.

( Andrea blows a kiss to the sky. )

Max: Thank you Andrea, congratulations again tonight.

( Andrea thanks Max and walks off with a smile on her face, wiping tears from her eyes. )

( 10 MINUTE INTERMISSION )

(We are shown a split screen of both Scott Diamond and Darkane leaving their locker rooms and heading to the ring)

(A video package highlighting the turmoil surrounding the Answers World Championship is shown. From Nasir Moore’s disappointing reign, to Carlos Rosso’s triumphant win and embarrassing defeat. The package transitions, cutting to audio and video of various wrestling personalities talking about a “cursed” Answers World Championship. But the package then fades to showcase the dominance of Scott Diamond. While this is going on, Darkane’s meteoric rise is spliced in until the two are playing almost in sync. The final shot of the package is Darkane and Diamond standing toe to toe, nose to nose, with Diamond holding up the Answers World Championship)

(The camera fades over to the ramp)

(The lights burn out and a verse in spoken word is read by Darkane himself over the speakers in the darkness)

“And I heard a voice in the midst of battle
And I looked and behold, the man in black
And the name that sat on him was Darkane, and hell followed with him”

(A pair of lightning bolts strike the corners of the stage and cast a line of fire down the sides of the rampway.)

(Darkane rises up through the stage and in a cloud of fog with his arms spread in a crucifix pose as “The Man Comes Around” by Johnny Cash begins to play.)

(A thunderous acoustic guitar strums eerily throughout the speedway and the bone chilling voice of Johnny Cash rattles Las Vegas. Heavy boos pour down on Darkane from the thousands and thousands in attendance.)

(Darkane trudges slowly down the ramp, dressed in a black leather jacket with matching black hole-ridden jean shorts as well as a grimy grave shovel in hand, his eyes solely focused on the ring in front of him, he finally reaches the bottom of the ramp and kisses the shovel before rolling in the ring and handing the shovel to the referee who reluctantly takes it and passes it to the timekeeper. Suddenly a wide circular spotlight shines down on the ring and in blood red lettering it is read: DarkaneTimes as Darkane himself takes a seat in the corner of the ring calmly, awaiting the arrival of Scott Diamond.)

(“The Games We Play” by Pusha T hits as the lights begin flickering gold. Scott Diamond approaches the stage wearing all black wrestling shorts and the Answers World Championship strapped tightly around his waist. No pomp, no circumstance, he walks down to the ring with a purpose, keeping his eyes locked on his opponent as the air of Pain For Pride settles in around him)

Stew: THERE’S A BIG FIGHT FEEL IN LAS VEGAS BARI!! Scott Diamond, the newly crowned Answers World Champion, only winning the title a few weeks back finds himself defending it for the first time right here at Pain For Pride! It’s an environment he’s certainly familiar with, it was five years ago at this event that Scott Diamond won the Company vs. Career match, maybe the most famous, most important match this company has ever seen, it certainly was to date. The pressure doesn’t affect him, this is just another day at the office.

Bari: But the same could be said for Darkane who is taking part in his first singles match tonight at Pain For Pride! He walked out here tonight with a peace that I don’t think I’ve ever seen before. This night hasn’t gotten to him despite what Scott Diamond may think, he’s READY!

(DING! DING! DING!)

Stephie Love: The following contest scheduled for one fall is for the EAW ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP!! Introducing first the challenger, from New Orleans, Louisiana… weighing in at 239 pounds… DARRRRRRKKKKKAAAAAAANNNNNNEEEEEEE!!

Stephie Love: And his opponent, from Long Island, New York… weighing in at 287 pounds… HE IS THE EAW ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION!!… SCOTTTTTTTT DIIIIAAAMMMMMMMMOOOOOOONNNNDDDD!!

(Diamond unstraps the championship and hands it over to the referee who holds it high into the air. The Answers World Championship graphic flashes across the screen. The referee hands the championship over to the timekeeper and calls for the bell)

(DING! DING! DING!)

Stew: The bell sounds and HERE… WE… GO!! Diamond vs. Darkane! And as this one begins, we see Scott Diamond stepping out of his corner, into the center of the ring where he begins pacing around… Darkane still in his corner, keeping his eyes locked on the champion… and Bari, if I had to ask you… We all know what Scott Diamond’s advantage is in this match, it’s the same one he has in every match, his size and strength, but what about Darkane? What is there in Darkane’s repertoire that he can use to get the advantage Scott Diamond in this one?

Bari: I’m gonna stop you right there Stew, you can leave the cliche commentary at the door for this one, it just doesn’t work. These two men are anomalies, the way things usually work… that doesn’t apply to either Scott Diamond OR Darkane. They don’t conform to the rules, the rules conform to them, THEY MAKE THE RULES! So if you REALLY want an answer, Darkane’s advantage over Scott Diamond is that Scott Diamond’s advantage may not work against Darkane! He’ll find a way to thwart it. It’s what he always does, it’s what has gotten him to this point, main eventing Pain For Pride!

Stew: Scott Diamond is calling for a lock up as Darkane comes sauntering out of his corner but Darkane won’t oblige him… so Scott Diamond switches to a fighting stance! This one is going to start with blows! Darkane assumes a defensive position… AS SCOTT GOES ON THE ATTACK BUT DARKANE IS ABLE TO SHOO HIM AWAY!! AND NOW DIAMOND, THE CHAMPION ON THE PROWL… LOOKING TO CHASE DOWN HIS PREY… HE LUNGES FORWARD, BUT RIGHT INTO A RIGHT HAND FROM DARKANE!! SCOTT DIAMOND FOLLOWS UP WITH ONE OF HIS OWN, AND NOW IT’S ON!! RIGHTS AND LEFTS BEING EXCHANGED, FLYING IN EVERY DIRECTION!! DARKANE ONE OF THE ONLY MEN ON THE ROSTER THAT ISN’T AFRAID TO THROW HANDS WITH SCOTT DIAMOND!!

Bari: BUT DIAMOND SEEMS TO BE GETTING THE UPPER HAND HERE, SHRINKING THE RING, CORNERING DARKANE AND PUSHING HIM INTO THE TURNBUCKLE… A PLACE THAT DARKANE DOESN’T WANT TO BE IN… BUT HOLD ON NOW!! DARKANE USING HIS SPEED TO SLIP UNDER SCOTT DIAMOND, AND NOW DIAMOND FINDS HIMSELF IN THE CORNER… ON THE RECEIVING END OF A BARRAGE OF STRIKES FROM THE CHALLENGER!! DARKANE GRABS DIAMOND BY THE ARM AND WHIPS HIM INTO THE OPPOSITE CORNER… HE COMES CHARGING, LOOKING FOR A CLOTHESLINE AND IT CONNECTS!!… SCOTT DIAMOND TAKES A FEW STEPS OUT FROM THE CORNER… BUT DARKANE LIFTS HIM INTO A SCOOP SLAM… AND IT CONNECTS!!

Stew: Darkane takes a few steps back into the ropes… looking to drop an elbow BUT NO!! This Scott Diamond is able to avoid! Darkane’s elbow connects with nothing but canvas there and as he gets back to his feet, he comes up holding it! Probably just a stinger but maybe something the champion will look to target as we get further into this match! Diamond again leans in for another lock up… BUT DARKANE SWATS THIS ONE AWAY!! Darkane literally slapped Scott Diamond’s hands away, a look of astonishment on the champion that quickly turns to anger… HE COMES CHARGING, TAKING THE CHALLENGER DOWN WITH A CLOTHESLINE!!

Bari: Darkane digs his hands down into the canvas, pulling himself to his feet… BUT GETS TAKEN DOWN WITH A SECOND CLOTHESLINE FROM THE CHAMPION, AND MAKE NO MISTAKE ABOUT IT, AS DARKANE POPS UP TO HIS FEET FOR A SECOND TIME, THESE CLOTHESLINE MAY NOT BE TAKING HIM DOWN FOR LONG BUT THEY’RE DOING THEIR JOB!! SCOTT DIAMOND TAKES DARKANE DOWN WITH A THIRD CLOTHESLINE AND THIS ONE KEEPS THE CHALLENGER ON THE MAT FOR A FEW SECONDS AS HE SCRAMBLES HIMSELF OVER TO THE ROPES AND PULLS HIMSELF TO HIS FEET!! But the champion is right behind him, on the hunt…

Stew: Diamond sends Darkane into the ropes… he drops his head looking for a back body drop… BUT DARKANE LIFTS HIS BOOT UP AND… SMACK!! RIGHT ACROSS THE FACE OF SCOTT DIAMOND, WOW… WHAT A SOUND!! AND DARKANE IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWS THAT UP WITH A DOUBLE A SPINEBUSTER!! THE CHAMPION DRIVEN!! On any normal night Darkane might go for the cover after that but this is far from an ordinary night, that isn’t getting the job done at Pain For Pride! The champion already beginning to stir as he turns onto his stomach and pushes himself to his feet… Darkane trying to figure out what to do next, scouting his next move… HE RUNS OFF THE ROPES AS SCOTT DIAMOND GETS TO HIS KNEES… AND A YAKUZA KICK!! A YAKUZA KICK RIGHT TO THE FACE OF THE CHAMPION!! ANOTHER LOUD CRACK AS SCOTT DIAMOND GOES BACK DOWN TO THE CANVAS!!

Bari: AND THIS TIME… DARKANE LOOKS TO BE GOING FOR THE PI… NO!! DARKANE ROLLED HIMSELF ONTO THE BODY OF SCOTT DIAMOND BUT AS THE REFEREE WAS SLIDING INTO POSITION DARKANE HAD SECOND THOUGHTS, GOOD… SMART!! LEAVE NO ROOM FOR DOUBT, STAY ON THE ATTACK, CONTINUE TO DEAL PUNISHMENT UNTIL YOU’RE CERTAIN THAT YOU HAVE THE VICTORY!! Darkane latches himself onto the wrist of Scott Diamond, putting his other hand under the arm of the champion and pulling him up to his feet… HE HOOKS THE CHAMPION… AND A T-BONE SUPLEX!! TOSSING AND THROWING SCOTT DIAMOND PERFECTLY OVER HIS BACK!!

Stew: WOW!! WHAT AN INCREDIBLE DISPLAY OF STRENGTH FROM THE CHALLENGER, DIAMOND WEIGHS CLOSE TO 300 POUNDS AND HE THREW HIM WITH EASE THERE!! It’s a quality about Darkane that’s often overlooked and even we here tonight maybe haven’t given him the credit that deserves… it may not look like it but under all those layers of attire is a very capably strong individual! AND HE HAS THE CHAMPION REELING HERE!! Scott Diamond is across the ring, he’s taken a lot of punishment in the last couple of minutes here! AND NOW DARKANE… UH OH BARI… LOOK AT WHAT DARKANE’S DOING!!

Bari: HE’S SETTING HIMSELF UP IN THE CORNER… AND IT MIGHT BE TIME!! DARKANE HAS THE DISTANCE FROM THE CHAMPION… HE’S DONE THE DAMAGE AND NOW HE MIGHT BE CALLING FOR THE END!! SCOTT DIAMOND IS GETTING HIMSELF TO HIS FEET, AND AS THE CAMERA ZOOMS IN ON HIS FACE, WHAT DO YOU SEE THERE, STEW?! I SEE SHOCK!! SCOTT DIAMOND DIDN’T EXPECT TO BE GETTING THIS TYPE OF BUSINESS FROM DARKANE HERE TONIGHT!! AND NOW AS SCOTT DIAMOND BEGINS TO STIR, BEGIN TO JOURNEY BACK TO HIS FEET… HE HAS NO IDEA WHAT’S COMING FOR HIM… SCOTT DIAMOND IS UP… AND DARKANE CHARGES!!… HERE HE COMES!!…

Stew: DEVIL MAY CRY!!… NO!! SCOTT DIAMOND!! SCOTT DIAMONDS LIFTS HIS KNEE AND JETS IT FORWARD, STOPPING DARKANE DEAD IN HIS TRACKS, THE CHALLENGER SLUMPS FORWARD… AND NOW OH MY!! SCOTT DIAMOND THROWS DARKANE OVER HIS SHOULDERS!! HOW INCREDIBLY WRONG HAS THIS JUST GONE FOR DARKANE?! SCOTT DIAMOND HAS HIM OVER HIS SHOULDERS, WALKING INTO THE MIDDLE OF THE RING… WHERE HE PLANTS HIM DOWN WITH THE VORTEX!! SCOTT DIAMOND WITH THE VORTEX, HE ROLLS DARKANE ONTO HIS BACK AND HOOKS BOTH LEGS FOR THE COVER!!

ONEEE!!… KICK OUT!! OHHH MY!! DARKANE JUST KICKED OUT OF THE VORTEX AT ONE!! AND NOW I SEE IT BARI, SCOTT DIAMOND IS IN COMPLETE DISBELIEF!!

Bari: AND YOU KNOW WHAT STEW, YOU OPENED UP THE MATCH BY TALKING ABOUT THIS, AND THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT I WAS TALKING ABOUT!! THE RULES THEY DON’T APPLY FOR DARKANE!! THAT MOVE, THE VORTEX HAS PUT AWAY SO MANY PEOPLE IN THE PAST BUT FOR SCOTT DIAMOND, IT COULDN’T EVEN GET A TWO COUNT ON DARKANE!! HE’S A WHOLE DIFFERENT TYPE OF BEAST, ONE THAT SCOTT DIAMOND HASN’T SEEN BEFORE, ONE THAT NOBODY HAS EVER SEEN BEFORE!! THIS IS INCREDIBLE, THAT MOVE HAS DONE SO MUCH FOR SCOTT DIAMOND, IT HAS WON HIM THE MAIN EVENT OF PAIN FOR PRIDE BEFORE, AND DARKANE JUST BRUSHED IT OFF… AS IF IT WAS NOTHING!!

Stew: Scott Diamond sits up, and he is ALREADY showing disbelief on his face! We still haven’t been going that long and I feel like for Scott Diamond, he’s already reached the point of not knowing what to do next! The Vortex is his best move, it’s his clincher… and it didn’t even come close to getting the job done! He gets to his feet, grabbing a fistful of Darkane’s hair along the way! I don’t know what he’s thinking here, Diamond probably doesn’t even know what he’s thinking here… he hooks Darkane for a simple suplex and it connects! That kick out has totally taken the champion off his game. He had a clear gameplan, but that plan ended with The Vortex! Now it’s all ad-lib… and you have to think that because of that, it’s now advantage Darkane!

Bari: Scott Diamond backs up into the corner and props himself up in a seated position as Darkane begins to stir, we’ve hit a bit of a lull here in this match… Diamond contemplating, allowing for Darkane to recover… if there’s any solace that Diamond can take out of this it’s that regardless of the kick out itself, that Vortex did the damage it’s needed to. It’s turned the tide completely into the favor of Scott Diamond. You say advantage Darkane, but I’m not too sure about that Stew. Look at the condition that he’s in compared to the champion!

Stew: Darkane on the far side of the ring, using the ropes to pull himself from his feet as Scott Diamond hops down from the turnbuckle… Darkane turns to meet Scott Diamond… BOTH MEN LUNGE FORWARD AND FINALLY WE HAVE OUR FIRST LOCK UP!! DIAMOND GETS THE EARLY ADVANTAGE BUT DARKANE CRAFTY IS ABLE TO SWITCH HIS GRIP, HE NOW TRANSITIONS TO THE SIDE OF SCOTT DIAMOND, LOOKING TO LIFT HIM UP… AN UNORTHODOX SIDE SUPLEX BUT IT CONNECTS!! OH BUT LOOK AT DARKANE!!… HE KEEPS THE GRIP APPLIED, AND GETTING UP TO HIS FEET… HE’S GONNA TRY TO HIT A SERIES OF THESE ON DIAMOND!! HE’S UP WITH DIAMOND… AND THE SECOND ONE CONNECTS, AND AGAIN DARKANE ROLLS THROUGH!! HE’S LOOKING FOR A TRIFECTA OF SIDE SUPLEXES HERE!!

Bari: BUT DARKANE’S STRUGGLING WITH THE LIFT ON THIS THIRD AND FINAL ONE!! DIAMOND IS BEGINNING TO FIGHT BACK, SENDING ELBOWS INTO THE SKULL OF THE CHALLENGER, AND DARKANE HAS NO OTHER CHOICE BUT TO RELEASE HIM… DIAMOND SAVES HIMSELF FROM BEING HIT WITH THAT THIRD SUPLEX!! DIAMOND COMES CHARGING NOW, SPINNING… LOOKING FOR A DISCUS CLOTHESLINE!! BUT DARKANE SIDESTEPS THE ATTACK, HE GRABS THE ARM AND CONNECTS WITH ENTER THE GRAVE!! THAT EVENFLOW DDT, IT CONNECTS ON THE CHAMPION!! DARKANE INTO THE COVER!!

ONEEE!!… TWOOO!!.. NO!! DIAMOND KICKS OUT!!

Stew: Diamond powers his shoulder up but Darkane wasting no time here… he seats Scott up into a seated position… AND NOW IT’S DARKANE’S TIME TO SEND SOME ELBOWS INTO HIS OPPONENT, COCKING THEM AT A 90 DEGREE ANGLE AND SENDING THEM DOWN INTO THE SKULL OF THE CHAMPION, THE SHARP ELBOWS BEING DRIVEN DOWN INTO THE SKULL OF DIAMOND, NOT SHOTS ACTUALLY, BUT JUST ADDED PRESSURE AS DARKANE DIGS HIS KNEE INTO THE SPINE OF DIAMOND… IT’S ALMOST LIKE HE’S TRYING TO SQUASH HIS SKULL!! DARKANE RETRACTS THE ELBOW… BUT ONLY TO DELIVER IT A SECOND TIME, AND NOW A THIRD, A FOURTH, A FIFTH!! ELBOW AFTER ELBOW INTO THE SKULL OF SCOTT DIAMOND WHO IN THE POSITION HE’S IN CAN’T DO ANYTHING BUT TAKE THESE, HE’S AT THE MERCY OF THE CHALLENGER HERE!!

Bari: Darkane with one last elbow, I think the tenth before finally letting up, removing his knee from Scott’s spine and getting him back to his feet… holding him by the wrist… DARKANE WHIPS HIM INTO THE ROPES BUT NO… SCOTT DIAMOND ABLE TO REVERSE, INSTEAD SENDING DARKANE INTO THE ROPES… BUT DARKANE HOWEVER WRAPS HIS ARMS AROUND THE ROPES… NO REBOUND!! HERE COMES SCOTT DIAMOND THOUGH, LEAPING INTO THE AIR… WITH THE POINT BLANK BICYCLE KICK!! POINT BLANK BICYCLE KICK AND BOTH MEN TUMBLE OVER THE ROPES, HITTING HARD ON THE OUTSIDE!!

Stew: Diamond is the first to begin crawling, followed by Darkane… a ten count to work with here but given the circumstances and the magnitude of this match, it wouldn’t surprise me in the slightest if the referee was a bit lenient with it here! Diamond grabs Darkane by the head, looking to smash it into the barricade but Darkane with a few shots into the mid-section… making sure that doesn’t happen! DARKANE NOW GRABBING DIAMOND BY THE WRIST, SENDING HIM IN THE DIRECTION OF THE STEEL STEPS BUT DIAMOND IS ABLE TO STOP HIMSELF AT THE LAST MINUTE!! DARKANE COMES CHARGING… BUT DIAMOND WITH A DROP TOE HOLD AND DARKANE GOES SKULL FIRST RIGHT ONTO THOSE STEEL STEPS, I BELIEVE HIS FOREHEAD CONNECTED WITH THE CORNER AND FOLKS IF THAT’S THE CASE… WE’RE ABOUT TO SEE A LOOOOT OF RED!!

Bari: Darkane rolls over, allowing the camera to get a great shot of his face and… OH NO STEW, I DON’T THINK IT WAS HIS FOREHEAD I THINK IT WAS HIS MOUTH!! DARKANE’S MOUTH HIT THE CORNER OF THOSE STEEL STEPS, A GAPING WIDE CUT… TEETH MISSING… MY GOD WHAT A SIGHT!! AND SCOTT DIAMOND CAN’T HELP BUT SMILE AS HE LEANS HIMSELF UP AGAINST THE BARRICADE, THAT’S DAMAGE… BIG DAMAGE DONE TO HIS OPPONENT!! DIAMOND GRABS DARKANE, PULLING HIM UP TO HIS FEET… BUT DARKANE!! DARKANE SPITS BLOOD INTO THE FACE OF SCOTT DIAMOND!! BLOOD AND WHO KNOWS WHAT ELSE TEMPORARILY BLINDING THE ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION, AND DARKANE FOLLOWS THAT UP WITH A FOREARM… AND NOW FROM BEHIND HE GRABS HIM!!…

Stew: THE GRAVE DIGGER!! AND SCOTT DIAMOND GOT HUNG UP ON THE BARRICADE, IT WAS A GRAVE DIGGER, THAT MODIFIED FULL NELSON FACEBUSTER BUT INSTEAD OF DELIVERING IT TO THE FLOOR ON THE OUTSIDE, DARKANE DROVE SCOTT NECK FIRST INTO THE BARRICADE!! THERE’S NO TELLING, ABSOLUTELY NO TELLING WHAT KIND OF DAMAGE MAY HAVE BEEN DONE THERE!! HIS THROAT MAY BE CRUSHED, HE MIGHT NOT BE ABLE TO BREATHE AND FOLKS… IF THAT’S THE CASE… WE’RE ON THE VERGE OF SEEING A NEW ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION!! DIAMOND WON’T BE ABLE TO CONTINUE IN THIS MATCH!!

(We head to a split screen. On one side a replay of the move is shown, on the other we see Scott Diamond crawling, gasping for air as he begins rubbing his throat, a slight look of panic on his face)

Bari: DARKANE GRABS DIAMOND AND ROLLS HIM INTO THE RING… DIAMOND COLLAPSES TO THE CANVAS, CAUGHING, HEAVING… AND DARKANE STALKS HIM FROM THE CORNER… THE FIRST ATTEMPT AT THE DEVIL MAY CRY WAS FOILED, BUT HOW ABOUT THE SECOND?! DIAMOND GETTING TO HIS FEET… DARKANE CHARGES… BUT AGAIN!! IT MISSES!! SCOTT DIAMOND IS ABLE TO SIDESTEP THE ONCOMING ATTACK, SENDING DARKANE INTO THE CORNER SHOULDER FIRST!! SCOTT DIAMOND COLLAPSES TO A SEATED POSITION BEFORE LYING ON HIS BACK AS DARKANE REMAINS IN THE CORNER, GETTING THE TIME HE NEEDS TO RECOVER BUT I BET DIAMOND WISHES HE COULD CAPITALIZE OFF OF DARKANE’S MISS BUT HE JUST CAN’T RIGHT NOW!!

Stew: A few referees are over to check on Diamond but he ensures them that he’s okay, and what a wild past few minutes it’s been! Darkane going mouth first into the corner of the ring steps, bleeding profusely from the mouth, teeth gone and then Diamond damn near getting his throat crushed… BUT THIS IS WHAT IT’S ABOUT FOLKS! THIS IS WHAT THE ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP MEANS TO THIS TWO, THIS IS HOW MUCH THE GRANDEST STAGE MEANS… THIS JUST GOES TO SHOW HOW MUCH THEY WANT TO WIN, NEED TO WIN!! SO MUCH ON THE LINE, SO MUCH MORE THAN JUST A TITLE UP FOR GRABS HERE TONIGHT AT PAIN FOR PRIDE!!

Bari: Diamond is up to his feet, and folks it’s worth pointing out that the shoulder that Darkane hit the turnbuckle with is on the same arm that earlier in the match came up empty on that elbow drop! Darkane has taken a bit of damage to that arm in this match… AND I THINK DIAMOND REALIZES AS HE GRABS IT… PULLING DARKANE UP TO HIS FEET AND TWISTING IT AROUND… FORCING DARKANE DOWN TO HIS KNEES… DIAMOND DIGGING HIS OWN FOREARM INTO THE HURT SHOULDER OF DARKANE WHILE SIMULTANEOUSLY TRYING TO HYPER EXTEND THE ELBOW!! BUT DARKANE STILL HAS A FREE ARM, AND HE’S USING IT TO POUND AWAY AT SCOTT’S CHEST… TO TRY AND GET SOME KIND OF DISTANCE BETWEEN THE TWO, DARKANE CAN’T STAY LIKE THIS!!

Stew: MORE CHOPS AND SWIPES AT SCOTT’S CHEST AND HE FINALLY RELEASES THE ARM OF DARKANE BUT AS DARKANE MAKES IT BACK TO HIS FEET… HE HAS TO REALIZE THE DANGER HE’S IN!! SCOTT DIAMOND HAS NOW MADE IT A FOCUS OF HIS TO TARGET THAT ARM AND SCOTT HAS MULTIPLE MOVES IN HIS REPERTOIRE TO DO JUST THAT!! DIAMOND GETS UP TO HIS FEET AND FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE THE ONSET OF THIS MATCH I THINK I SEE A BIT OF CONFIDENCE ON HIS FACE!! HE KNOWS WHAT WE’VE JUST BEEN ATTESTING TO, DARKANE IS IN TROUBLE!!

Bari: But remember Stew, it’s what I’ve been saying all match, the normal rules, the normal things we think about professional wrestling, they don’t apply to either one of these men. Is Darkane really in trouble?! Both men begin circling around the ring, Darkane has his eyes locked on that arm and Darkane knows it… AND NOW SCOTT COMING IN, LOOKING TO USE HIS AMATEUR BACKGROUND TO TACKLE DARKANE TO THE MAT BUT DARKANE DEAD’S HIM… AND A KNEE RIGHT TO THE FACE!!… AND NOW WITH HIS GOOD ARM HE APPLIES A HEADLOCK, WRENCHING THE HEAD AND REMEMBER… WE’VE BEEN PAYING ALL THIS ATTENTION TO THE SHOULDER AND ARM OF DARKANE BUT WE STILL DON’T KNOW WHAT KIND OF DAMAGE WAS DONE TO THE THROAT OF SCOTT DIAMOND, THIS HEADLOCK MAY BE DOING A LOT MORE THAN WE THINK!!

Stew: Darkane continues to wrench the head as he gets back to a vertical base, keeping the headlock applied… AND HE PLANTS DIAMOND INTO THE CANVAS WITH A SECOND ENTER THE GRAVE!! DIAMOND IS DOWN AND NOW DARKANE STEPS BETWEEN THE ROPES, ONTO THE APRON… WHAT’S HE GOING FOR HERE?! DARKANE NOT KNOWN FOR GOING TO THE TOP ROPE… ONLY ON AN EXTREMELY RARE OCCASION AND WELL, I GUESS THIS WOULD COUNT AS ONE!! DARKANE SLOWLY BUT SURELY JOURNEYING TO THE TOP… PERCHED HE SETS HIMSELF… BUT OH!! SCOTT DIAMOND!! SCOTT DIAMOND POPS TO HIS FEET, HE RUNS UP THE TURNBUCKLE, WRAPS HIS ARMS AROUND DARKANE AND THROWS HIM HALF WAY ACROSS THE RING WITH AN AVALANCHE BELLY TO BELLY!! A BELLY TO BELLY SUPLEX FROM THE TOP ROPE!! DIAMOND SCRAMBLES BACKWARDS INTO THE COVER, TO RETAIN THE TITLE!!

ONEEE!!… TWOOO!!… ANDD NO!! DARKANE WITH THE SHOULDER UP!!

Bari: Diamond sits up, a sense of urgency on his face… this is his best opportunity yet to take real control of this match! He gets to his feet… AND NOW DIAMOND MAY BE HAVING THE SAME THOUGHTS THAT DARKANE WAS JUST MOMENTS AGO!! HE HEADS OUT TO THE APRON… I WOULD SAY DIAMOND IS A LITTLE MORE COMFORTABLE WITH FLYING THAN DARKANE IS, BUT STILL… I CAN’T QUITE REMEMBER THE LAST TIME I SAW HIM GO HIGH RISK!! HE BEGINS THE TREK TO THE TOP ROPE… DARKANE HOWEVER IS BEGINNING TO STIR, YOU CAN SEE ON THE BOTTOM OF YOUR SCREEN IS BEGINNING TO STIR, ON HIS KNEES… MAKING IT BACK TO HIS FEET AS SCOTT DIAMOND REACHES THE TOP!!

Stew: AND NOW HERE HE COMES!! DIAMOND UNABLE TO SET HIMSELF ON THE TOP ROPE, INSTEAD HE GETS HIS HANDS UP… BECAUSE DARKANE IS COMING FOR A FIGHT, THIS ISN’T GONNA END WELL!! DARKANE IS THE FIRST ONE TO THROW A SHOT IT CONNECTS FLUSH WITH THE JAW OF DIAMOND WHO NEEDS TO PUT HIS LEFT HAND ON THE TOP ROPE TO BALANCE HIMSELF AND KEEP HIMSELF FROM FALLING OFF!! HE FOLLOWS BACK WITH ONE OF HIS OWN… BUT DARKANE WITH TWO MORE… HE HAS POSITIONAL EDGE HERE, SCOTT DIAMOND IS LOOKING AT ABOUT A TWELVE FOOT FALL ONTO THE FLOOR OUTSIDE!! DARKANE CONTINUES TO THROW PUNCHES HIS PUNCHES, DIAMOND LETTING THEM CONNECT, HE CAN’T GET BOTH OF HIS HANDS UP TO BLOCK… BUT WITH HIS FREE HAND HE THROWS A FOREARM!!

Bari: IT CONNECTS AND IT HAS DARKANE DAZED!! AND NOW DIAMOND… WHAT’S HE LOOKING FOR HERE?! WHAT’S HE TRYING TO DO!? HE’S TRYING TO HOOK DARKANE… DIAMOND IS LOOKING FOR A SUPERPLEX ONTO THE OUTSIDE!! THIS WILL BE CATASTROPHIC FOR BOTH MEN!! WHAT IS HE THINKING?! DIAMOND LIFTS DARKANE UP AS HE FALLS BACKWARDS OFF THE TURNBUCKLE ONTO THE OUTS– WAIT!! OH… OH MY GOD!!

Stew: DARKANE REVERSED, HE REVERSED MID-AIR AND SCOTT DIAMOND’S SPINE BOUNCES OFF THE RING APRON, THE EDGE OF THE RING JUST ATE UP DIAMOND’S ENTIRE SPINE AND NOW HE WRITHES ON THE FLOOR IN PAIN, SCREAMING IN AGONY… DARKANE DOWN AS WELL, DON’T THINK HE CAME OUT OF IT UNSCATHED BUT IT DOESN’T TAKE MUCH TO SEE THAT HE’S CLEARLY THE BETTER OF THE TWO HERE!! DARKANE WRAPS HIS FIST AROUND THE LONE PHYSICAL APRON HERE AT RINGSIDE AND USES IT TO PULL HIMSELF TO HIS FEET!! HE GRABS DIAMOND, PUSHES HIM INTO THE RING, DIAMOND IS DEAD WEIGHT AT THIS POINT!! DARKANE FOLLOWS NOT TOO FAR BEHIND AND PUSHES DIAMOND FURTHER INTO THE RING, NO HOPE OF A BREAK HERE… HE HOOKS THE LEG AS THE REFEREE SLIDES INTO POSITION, DO WE HAVE A NEW CHAMPION?!

ONEEE!!… TWOOO!!… BUT NO!! DIAMOND CONTINUES TO FIGHT ON IN THIS ONE!

Bari: DIAMOND REFUSING TO GIVE UP, HOLDING ONTO HIS ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP BUT AS DARKANE SETS UP IN THE CORNER… YOU HAVE TO WONDER… FOR HOW LONG?! THE FIRST ATTEMPT WAS REVERSED, THE SECOND ATTEMPT WAS FOILED… BUT WILL THE THIRD DEVIL MAY CRY ATTEMPT BE THE CHARM!! DIAMOND HAS MANAGED TO PULL HIMSELF TO HIS KNEES, HE PLANTS HIS RIGHT FOOT DOWN INTO THE CANVAS FOLLOWED BY HIS LEFT AND RAISES UP TO A VERTICAL BASE AS DARKANE EXPLODES OUT OF THE CORNER!! BUT DIAMOND TACKLES HIM DOWN TO THE CANVAS!! THE DEVIL MAY CRY HAS BEEN HINDERED AGAIN!!

Stew: AND NOW DIAMOND… DIAMOND LOCKS IN THE LIFE SENTENCE!! AND HE HAS DARKANE’S BAD ARM TRAPPED!! THE LIFE SENTENCE IS LOCKED IN!! AND HERE IS WHERE WE’LL SEE WHAT DARKANE IS TRULY MADE OF!! THE LIGHTS, THEY’VE NEVER BEEN BRIGHTER AND RIGHT NOW EACH AND EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM IS SHINING DOWN ON DARKANE, THE CENTER OF ATTENTION HERE, STUCK IN THIS SUBMISSION HOLD, THE VERY SAME SUBMISSION HOLD THAT ONE SCOTT DIAMOND THE ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP… WILL DARKANE BE FORCED TO SUBMIT OR CAN HE SOMEHOW FIND A WAY TO GET OUT OF THIS?!

Bari: HE FLAILS HIS FREE ARM OUT, TRYING TO REACH THE ROPES BUT HE’S NOWHERE NEAR THEM, AND I DON’T THINK HE’S IN THE POSITION TO CRAWL!! HE TRIES TO PRY DIAMOND’S HANDS AWAY BUT THEY’RE FIRMLY LOCKED IN… I DON’T THINK THE JAWS OF LIFE COULD GET THEM APART!! DIAMOND IS SCREAMING AT DARKANE TO TAP BUT DARKANE REFUSES… HE’S GOTTEN THIS FAR, SO FAR AND HE’S NOT GONNA ALLOW IT TO END HERE!!

Stew: BUT WHAT CHOICE DOES HE HAVE?! DIAMOND HAS IT LOCKED IN, RIGHT IN THE CENTER OF THE RING! WE MENTIONED THERE’S NO ROPES IN SIGHT, HE DOESN’T HAVE THE STRENGTH ANYMORE TO PULL DIAMOND’S ENTIRE BODY WEIGHT WITH HIM OVER TO THE ROPES… HE MAY HAVE NO OTHER CHOICE BUT TO… OH WAIT!! DARKANE PUSHES OFF THE CANVAS WITH HIS FEET… ROLLING SCOTT ONTO HIS BACK, THAT’S A PIN!!

ONEEE!!… TWOOO!!… BUT SCOTT DIAMOND ROLLS BACK OVER, REGAINING CONTROL OVER THE HOLD!!

Bari: BUT DARKANE IS IN A MUCH MORE FAVORABLE POSITION HERE, CLOSER TO THE ROPES… HE’S ONLY ABOUT A HANDS LENGTH AWAY!! IF HE CAN FIND IT IN HIM DEEP, DEEP DOWN TO REACH OUT, EXTEND JUST A LITTLE MORE… HE’LL BREAK THIS HOLD!! AND NOW DIAMOND HAS A DECISION TO MAKE, DOES HE WASTE THE EFFORT OF ROLLING BACK INTO THE CENTER OF THE RING, AND POSSIBLY RISK DARKANE TURNING IT AROUND ON HIM OR DOES HE STAY HERE, CONTINUE TO WRENCH AND HOPE FOR THE BEST!!

Stew: I THINK HE’S MADE HIS DECISION, HE REARS BACK… CONTINUES TO TORQUE THE HEAD EVEN MORE… SCREAMING, A DEEP, PRIMAL SCREAM TO DARKANE, DEMANDING THAT HE TAPS BUT DARKANE WON’T HAVE IT… HE DIGS DOWN… AND GETS HIS HAND ON THE BOTTOM ROPE, CLUTCHING IT FOR DEAR LIFE AS THE REFEREE SIGNALS TO DIAMOND THAT THE HOLD MUST BE BROKEN, WHICH IT IS AFTER FULLY UTILIZING THE FIVE COUNT!! DIAMOND EXHAUSTED CRUMPLES DOWN TO THE CANVAS… BOTH MEN ARE DOWN, BOTH MEN ARE SPENT… WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE?!

Bari: It’s been a long time since Diamond was in a match that’s gone on for this long or has been this physical… this isn’t something that he’s used to! He’s used to putting his opponents away quick without breaking much of a sweat, that’s just what his style lends to! But so far tonight, Darkane has either refused to let Scott get into that style or he’s matched with it in a way few if any have before! Diamond is to his feet and he positions himself behind Darkane who’s beginning to stir…

Stew: BUT DIAMOND IS IMPATIENT, HE’S NOT GONNA WAIT, HE WRAPS HIS ARMS AROUND THE WAIST OF DARKANE, PULLING HIM TO HIS FEET… LOOKING FOR A GERMAN SUPLEX… BUT DARKANE!! DARKANE LOCKS HIS FOOT AROUND THE LEG OF DIAMOND, NOT ALLOWING HIM TO GET THE LIFT OFF!! AND NOW HE SHOOTS HIS LEG BACK, KICKING DIAMOND DIRECTLY IN THE KNEE, TAKING OUT ALL HIS WEIGHT AS DIAMOND GOES COLLAPSING DOWN TO THE CANVAS!! DIAMOND HOBBLES BACK UP TO HIS FEET… DARKANE COMES CHARGING FOR THE DEVIL MAY CRY!! THE FOURTH TIME… AND NOOO!! STILL NOTHING FOR DARKANE, COMING UP EMPTY!! DIAMOND GETS BEHIND DARKANE, HE LIFTS HIM UP AND THIS TIME THE GERMAN SUPLEX CONNECTS!! A HIGH ANGLED ONE AT THAT, LANDING DAMN NEAR ON HIS NECK, HE ROLLS BACKWARDS AND STUMBLES BACK UP TO HIS FEET… SCOTT DIAMOND IS THERE AND HE TOSSES DARKANE OVER HIS SHOULDERS!!…

Bari: LOOKING FOR A VORTEX!! THE SECOND ONE IN THIS MATCH!! DARKANE TRIES TO BRING HIS BODY WEIGHT FORWARD TO THE EDGE OF THE RING, BUT DIAMOND RE-ADJUSTS HIMSELF… BOOM!! IT CONNECTS!! SCOTT DIAMOND WITH THE VORTEX AND FOLKS I PROMISE YOU THIS TIME DARKANE WON’T BE KICKING OUT AT ONE!! THERE WON’T BE ANY KICK OUT, SCOTT DIAMOND HAS RETAINED HIS ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP AT PAIN FOR PRIDE!!

ONEEE!!… TWOOO!!…

Stew: EXCEPT HE HASN’T!!… DARKANE KICKS OUT OF THE VORTEX FOR THE SECOND TIME!!

Bari: UNBELIEVABLE!! DIAMOND IS BESIDE HIMSELF!! HE LITERALLY LEAPS INTO THE AIR IN A FIT BEFORE COLLAPSING BACK DOWN TO THE CANVAS MOTIONLESS! HOW DARKANE WAS ABLE TO KICK OUT OF THAT SECOND VORTEX IS BEYOND ME BUT HE DID IT… AND NOW YOU HAVE TO WONDER, WHAT WILL IT TAKE?! WHAT IN THE WORLD IS IT GOING TO TAKE FOR SCOTT DIAMOND TO PUT DARKANE AWAY AND RETAIN HIS ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP?! I’M STARTING TO DOUBT THAT IT CAN BE DONE!!

Stew: But for as tough as Darkane’s been in this one, Diamond’s been just as tough! Darkane still hasn’t hit The Devil May Cry, Diamond has stopped it all four times, that spear right to the spine still hasn’t connected for the challenger! Diamond pounds his fist into the canvas as he makes it back to his feet… Darkane, still down, that might’ve been an instinct kick out from Darkane. Diamond looks down at his gloves… AND LOOK AT THE FACE! THE DEMEANOR CHANGE, SUDDEN, QUICK, VIOLENT!! DIAMOND BEGINNING TO REMOVE HIS GLOVES HERE AND THIS IS SOMETHING NEW THAT DIAMOND’S DEVELOPED THOUGH TO MY KNOWLEDGE HE HASN’T USED IT YET HERE IN EAW, ONLY IN REVOLT PRO COMBAT!! IF HE CAN’T PIN YOU, IF HE CAN’T MAKE YOU SUBMIT… HE’S GONNA KNOCK YOU OUT!! HE’S GONNA RENDER YOU UNCONSCIOUS, WHATEVER IT TAKES TO WIN HERE TONIGHT AT PAIN FOR PRIDE!! THE GLOVES ARE OFF AND THE BARE HANDED DIAMOND MAKES HIS WAY OVER TO HIS CHALLENGER!!

Bari: HE GRABS DARKANE BY THE ARM AND ROLLS HIM OVER ONTO HIS BACK… NOW MOUNTING HIMSELF ACROSS THE CHEST OF DARKANE THE PUNCHES BEGIN FLYING, ONE AFTER ANOTHER… DARKANE CAN’T BLOCK THEM… HE CAN’T GET HIS ARMS UP TO STOP THE PUNISHMENT HERE BEING DELIVERED BY SCOTT DIAMOND!! DIAMOND NOW LEANING IN, GETTING CLOSER AS HE SWITCHES TO FOREARMS!! FOREARM SHOTS RIGHT TO THE SKULL OF THE CHALLENGER, TRYING TO BEAT HIM SENSELESS AND YOU HAVE TO WONDER AT WHAT POINT DOES THE REFEREE STEP IN HERE?! A STOPPAGE TO END DAY 1 OF PAIN FOR PRIDE WOULD NOT BE AN UNPOPULAR DECISION!!

Stew: OH BUT DARKANE!! DARKANE SHOWING LIFE!! DARKANE GRABBING SCOTT BY THE BACK OF THE HEAD… AND HEADBUTTING HIM!! DIAMOND TRIES FOR A RIGHT HAND BUT THIS ONE IS AVOIDED… AND A SECOND HEADBUTT FROM THE CHALLENGER!! AND NOW A THIRD… FOURTH!! DARKANE WITH A SERIES OF HEADBUTTS TO THE CHAMPION!! THE CROWD COUNTING ALONG… A FIFTH… A SIXTH!! SCOTT DIAMOND’S ARMS HAVE GONE LIMP AT HIS SIDE!! AND NOW A SEVENT AND FINAL HEADBUTT AS HE PUSHES THE CHAMPION OFF OF HIM!! THE BLOODIED DARKANE PUSHES HIMSELF BACK INTO THE CORNER AND TO HIS FEET AS DIAMOND AS THE MUDDLED CHAMPION DOES THE SAME IN THE OPPOSITE CORNER!!… AND NOW DARKANE…

…FOR THE FIFTH TIME CHARGES TOWARDS DIAMOND!!…

… DEVIL. MAY. CRY!!…

… CONNECTS!!

Stew: DARKANE FINALLY AFTER FOUR UNSUCCESSFUL ATTEMPTS HAS HIT THE DEVIL MAY CRY ON SCOTT DIAMOND, HE ROLLS HIM OVER ONTO HIS BACK AND HOOKS THE LEG… IS THIS IT?!

ONEEE!!… TWOOO!!… THREEE!! IT IS!!

(DING! DING! DING!)

(“The Man Comes Around” hits as the referee heads out of the ring to grab the Answers World Championship. The camera focuses in on the bloody face of Darkane, expressionless as he comes to and is awarded his newly won championship)

Stephie Love: Here is your winner… AND THE NEWWWWW ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION!!.. DARRRRRKKKKAAAANNNNNEEEEE!!

Stew: DARKANE!! HE’S DONE IT!! HE’S THE ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION!! DIAMOND AND DARKANE, THEY WAGED WAR… BUT AT THE END IT’S DARKANE WHO COMES OUT ON TOP, DARKANE WHO CONQUERS, DARKANE WHO NOW RULES AS THE CHAMPION!!

Bari: What an incredible match we just witnessed Stew! These two laid it all on the line tonight at Pain For Pride for that championship, there should be no shame in any of it!

(Darkane makes it to his knees as he grips the Answers World Championship. He stares into it as an eruption of pyro begins to shoot off)

Stew: What a night this has been! Darkane who’s been eagerly anticipating this moment for months, he promised this would happen… AND HE DELIVERED!

(Darkane makes it to his feet and raises the Answers World Championship into the air as the pyro continues to go off behind him)

(The feed fades to black)

( EAW logo buzzes )

DAY TWO

(EAW’s Opening Video Plays)…

(Highlights of Day 1 are aired and the package ends with Darkane, standing triumphantly, holding the Answers World Championship high in the air as a dazzling display of pyro shoots off behind him)

(The camera cuts to black. But there’s a feeling of anticipation, a muffled musical swelling can be heard beginning to build. After a few moments an invisible narrator steps in. His voice smooth, calm, cool)

Narrator: Oh… but we’re far from finished.

(Cut to crowd reactions from last night. The emotion, the awe, the spectacle captured perfectly on their faces)

Narrator: We’re just getting started.

(The music swell explodes into “Live in the Moment” by Portugal. The Man. More clips from the previous night fly by at a feverish pace. Lights, colors, bodies, passing by on the screen in a blur)

Narrator: There’s still a LOOOONG way to go.

(Then it all comes crashing down in a violent explosion and again we’re back to black)

Narrator: Enjoy the show…

“OOOO LA-LA-LA-LA-LA”
“LET’S LIVE IN THE MOMENT”…

Narrator: AND NOW… WE WELCOME YOU BACK TO THE SHOW OF THE CENTURY!!

(THE CAMERA ZOOMS INSIDE THE VENUE AS EXPLOSIONS OF PYRO BEGIN TO GO OFF)

(A FAR, WIDE ANGLED SHOT AS WE TAKE IT ALL IN)

Kawajai: WE’RE BACK!! WELCOME LADIES AND GENTLEMEN TO DAY TWO OF THE EXTRAVAGANZA… PAIN FOR PRIDE!! IT IS MY HONOR TO BE HERE, KAWAJAI JOINED AS ALWAYS BY COLLEAGUE NICK ANGEL… AND PARTNER I DON’T KNOW ABOUT YOU BUT THOSE DAY ONE JITTERS ARE STILL THERE FOR ME, I DON’T KNOW IF THEY’RE EVER GONNA GO AWAY!!

Nick Angel: I’M WITH YOU ON THAT, LOOK AT THIS PLACE KAWA… IT’S A PRIVILEGE TO BE ABLE TO OPEN THE SHOW, AND FOR THE FIRST TIME I’M REALLY BEING ABLE TO TAKE IT ALL IN!! THIS IS UNLIKE ANYTHING I’VE EVER EXPERIENCED BEFORE AND I’VE TAKEN PART IN MORE THAN A FEW PAIN FOR PRIDE’S IN THE PAST!!… WE OUTDO OURSELVES EVERY YEAR!!

Kawajai: DAY ONE WAS HISTORIC, IT WAS GROUNDBREAKING… IT WAS FANTASTIC, THERE AREN’T ENOUGH WORDS TO DESCRIBE IT!!…

NOW LET’S GO TOP IT!!

( http://media.discordapp.net/attachments/396155295174492172/457128675985588224/Payne-vs-Revenant-vs-Bowden-Diesel.png )

(Video package of highlights from Xander Payne, Damon Diesel, Alex Bowden, and The Revenant play. A history of New Breed Champions is shown on the titantron before the screen goes black and “It Follows” by Cane Hill begins to play as the lights briefly go out before going back on as Xander Payne comes out from behind the curtain to deafening boos from the audience)

Stephie Love: The following match is a Fatal-Four Way Contest, and will be contested for the NEWWWWW BREEED CHAMPIONSHIPP!!! Introducing first, from Brampton, Ontario, Canada, weighing in at 255 pounds… XANDERRRR PAYNEEEE!!!!

Stew-O: Xander Payne is on the come-up and he’s out for blood tonight. He wants every to realize exactly how good he is. He hasn’t made his mark in EAW yet, but what better opportunity than to do it at the pinnacle of wrestling? This is the stage where opportunity meets preparation and Xander Payne has the opportunity to experience the fruits of his labor tonight. They won’t be of the low-hanging variety, I’ll tell you that much.

(“War Zone” by World War Me hits as Alex Bowden walks down the ramp greeting fans of all sorts, high-fiving and smiling to them along the way as he’s cheered on by a majority of the crowd)

Stephie Love: From Dunkirk, France, weighing in at 225 pounds… ALEXXX BOWDENNN!!!!!

Talib: I’m worried if Alex Bowden’s penchant for violence won’t decrease his chances of coming out the victory tonight. Sometimes guys let it get to their head a little bit too much, and at Pain for Pride you obviously want to make a mark, but there’s a non-zero chance that mark he makes is simply one where he inflects pain upon everybody in his path. He’s going to have to rein that in.

(“Rise Up” by Saliva hits as Damon Diesel makes his way down the ramp and the fans begin uproariously cheering. Mid-way through his entrance Damon puts his hands on the ramp, shooting them up in the rhythmic unision of his pyro blasting. Damon proceeds to enter the ring)

Stephie Love: From Orlando, Florida, weighing in at 202 pounds… DAMONNNN DIESELLLLLLL!!!!!!

Stew: Damon’s got an excellent wrestling background and he looks to employ that tonight as he sets his sights directly on the New Breed Championship. Damon has every intent of making people believe he’s more than initially meets the eye, and tonight is his golden opportunity to fix the crowd’s eyes on the picture of a champion.

(“For Whom the Bell Tolls” by Metallica hits as The Revenant makes his entrance down the ramp pathway to a chorus of boos from the audience in Las Vegas. They’re showing absolutely zero love as he nonchalantly saunters down the steps without a care in the world, the New Breed Championship draped around his waist. He appears confident, cool, and calm as he readies to defend his title)

Stephie: And last… from Chicago, Illinois, weighing in at 245 pounds… HE IS THE NEW BREED CHAMPION… “THE DREADKNIGHT” … THE REVENANTTTTTTTTTTT!!!!!!!!

Talib: You’d think with The Revenant’s mathematical odds being what they are in this matchup that he’d be a little more on edge, but the guy appears coolly confident, which is exactly what you want in your champions. The Revenant has the edge in this matchup of already having something they all seek to obtain. The question is, do they have something he doesn’t anymore? The hunger? He’s already got that title so he can’t relate to the hunger of trying to get it back like maybe these three other competitors. It’s harder to stay on the top than it is to get there, as the old adage goes, and tonight Revenant marches against that grain as he vies to defend his most treasured prize.

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Stew-O: This hotly anticipated four-way for the coveted, prestigious EAW New Breed Championship is underway after that bell sounds! The four men are standing on each corner of the ring, their boots dug into the canvas as they position themselves against the turnbuckles nearby, and now The Revenant is moseying on over to Damon Diesel, but he’s intercepted by Xander Payne who lunges into The Revenant for an elbow thrust into the throat that connects and sends Revenant staggering backward! And now it’s Damon Diesel getting behind Xander Payne and trying to steal with one as he grabs a handful of tights and has Xander for a roll-up! But the count doesn’t even get to one as Alex Bowden quickly connects with a missile dropkick to the back of the head of Damon Diesel, now taking him by the neck and throwing him straight over the top rope! There’s currently three men in the ring, and now Revenant has regained his strength as he saunters forward and connects with a forearm smash to the back of Xander Payne! That forearm smash leveled him, Talib!

Bari: Indeed it did, but Xander Payne isn’t the only one The Revenant has to worry about as Alex Bowden inches over to him and catches him with a thumb to the eye! Ordinarily Alex Bowden wouldn’t resort to such tactics, but all’s fair in love and war when you’re competing for the New Breed Championship! The Revenant’s vision is obscured as Alex Bowden pushes him into the turnbuckles and launches himself in that corner for a hard knee to the midsection of The Revenant, followed immediately thereafter by a shriek of pain from The Revenant! Alex Bowden isn’t letting up for a second as he immediately pounds into the sternum of The Revenant with another violent knee strike! You can see the red forming on the chest of The Revenant already as Xander Payne now readies to re-enter the fray, charging forward and trying to connect with a lunging big boot to the back of Alex Bowden, but nobody’s home as Bowden makes a timely out of the way, and instead that big boot strikes smack-dab in the throat of The Revenant! The Revenant is already absorbing a herculean level of punishment in the early goings of this future superstar-studded matchup, and now Bowden is seeking to capitalize on the situation as he charges into the corner from one side of the ring to the other and successfully executes a swinging neckbreaker to Xander Payne that snaps his neck against the top rope, sending him tumbling forward and laid out on the middle of the canvas! I’m not sure that’s what Bowden intended, but what admirable creativity from Bowden — though I’m positive Xander Payne doesn’t think so!

Stew-O: Definitely not. That’s why he’s holding his neck in pain right now! That maneuver could any chances he has of winning this New Breed Championship match down to zero. Alex Bowden proceeds to pound away at the cornered Revenant with closed-fist punches that go uninterrupted by the referee, and Alex Bowden is trying to open him up and draw the blood of The Revenant, and you can see red starting to form under the eye of The Revenant as he’s basically helpless to defend himself! Alex Bowden separates from The Revenant and walks over to the other side, positioning himself against the opposite turnbuckles and now darting toward his prone foe with the unmistakable speed of a gazelle, launching himself onto The Revenant for a corner splash, but again nobody’s home and this time nobody’s there to take the brunt of that fall except for Alex Bowden as he finds his body going chest-first against the top turnbuckle! He’s favoring his rib cage as that miss sends him tumbling against the canvas and down to one knee, gasping for air and trying to catch his breath! This is The Revenant’s opportunity to capitalize and grip the bull by the horns, and he’s looking to do exactly that as he readies to take Alex Bowden up! HE’S GONNA GO FOR THE EXECUTIONER! ALEX BOWDEN IS PERFECTLY HOISTED UP, AND THE REVENANT IS MAKING HIS STORY IN THIS MATCH GO FROM RAGS TO RICHES AS HE READIES TO SLAM ALEX BOWDEN AGAINST THE MAT AND FINISH THIS BOUT THE DECISIVE WINNER!

Bali: BUT IT’S DAMON DIESEL SLIDING THROUGH THE ROPES FROM OUT OF NOWHERE AND CONNECTING WITH A CHOP BLOCK TO THE BACK OF THE REVENANT’S LEG THAT SAVES ALEX BOWDEN FROM NEAR-CERTAIN DEFEAT! THE REVENANT HAD THE EXECUTIONER CINCHED IN, BUT ALEX BOWDEN ELUDES IMMINENT DISASTER ON THE HEELS OF A TIMELY SAVE BY THE RE-EMERGING DAMON DIESEL!

Stew-O: That chop block sends Alex Bowden tumbling against the mat, just not with nearly as much force as if The Revenant had laid him out with that Executioner! Xander Payne is starting to rise to his feet, and The Revenant turns around seemingly incensed by the actions of Damon Diesel as he grips him by the throat and tosses him in the corner, charging immediately afterward for a corner clothesline, and Damon Diesel lurches forward in a dazed stupor and is immediately met by a snap suplex from Xander Payne! This leaves the gateway open for Xander Payne and The Revenant to duke it out, and the two immediately oblige one another as a hockey fight breaks out here in Las Vegas! The Revenant is seemingly getting the better of Xander, but Xander is showing moxie, showing grit as he sticks in there and says forget about the hand-to-hand combat, instead opting for a knee to the midsection of The Revenant to temporarily neutralize him! The Revenant pops his head up for a brief moment, but right as he does so Xander Payne using The Revenant’s body as a prop attempts to connect with a step-up enzuigiri, but that boot catches nothing but air as The Revenant ducks and dodges, and now Xander is trying to use the back of his boost to thrust it in the throat of The Revenant — but again The Revenant dodges, and instead applies an Ankle Lock to Xander Payne! AND THE REVENANT WRENCHES HIM IN COMPLETELY AS HE GRAPEVINES THE ANKLE OF XANDER PAYNE, GROUNDING HIM! XANDER PAYNE IS WRITHING IN AGONY ON THE CANVAS, SCREAMING IN PAIN, LOOKING FOR THE ROPES BUT IT ISN’T GOING TO MATTER AS THIS IS ALL-OUT WARFARE BROKEN OUT HERE IN THE LAS VEGAS MOTOR SPEEDWAY ARENA!

Bari: Xander Payne is trying to contort his body around and avoid taking any more punishment from The Revenant than he already has, but all that’s doing is causing The Revenant to grip the submission hold in tighter, and Xander Payne has absolutely nowhere to go as his arms flail wildly in the air, seemingly indicating he’s about to tap out and allow The Revenant to walk out of this arena with that New Breed Championship still in hand! XANDER PAYNE’S ARMS CONTINUE TO FLAIL, AND HE’S PRESSING HIS HAND IN DOWNWARD MOTIONS SEEMINGLY INDICATING HE’S GOING TO SUBMIT!

Stew-O: BUT DAMON DIESEL SPRINGBOARDS OFF THE ROPES AND CONNECTS WITH A 450 SPLASH SANDWICHED BETWEEN BOTH THE REVENANT AND XANDER PAYNE, AND HE BREAKS IT UP! DAMON DIESEL WANTS ALL THE RICHES AND GOLD TO HIMSELF AND HE’S NOT GOING TO LET PAIN FOR PRIDE BE ANOTHER MAN’S BATTLEFIELD TODAY! XANDER PAYNE IS FAVORING HIS ANKLE AFTER THAT GRAPEVINE VARIANT WAS APPLIED FOR WHAT I’M SURE FELT LIKE HOURS TO THE TRASH-TALKING CHAMPIONSHIP HOPEFUL, AND THE REVENANT HAS SKID MARKS ON HIS SIDE AS HE TOOK THAT SPRINGBOARD 450 SPLASH AWKWARDLY! DAMON DIESEL SEEMS TO BE IN TIP-TOP CONDITION AS HE IMMEDIATELY WRENCHES XANDER PAYNE IN, TAKING HIM BACK TO A VERTICAL BASE AND APPLYING A WAIST LOCK FROM BEHIND, AND SLOTH-LIKE ELBOW ATTEMPTS STEMMING FROM XANDER’S SIGNIFICANTLY DEPRECIATED ENERGY COME TO ABSOLUTELY NO AVAIL AS DAMON DIESEL HOISTS HIM BACKWARD AND SENDS XANDER VIOLENTLY CRASHING DOWN ON HIS HEAD AS THIS ENTIRE CAPACITY CROWD HEARD THE THUD OF THAT GERMAN SUPLEX! DAMON DIESEL WASTES NO TIME IMMEDIATELY GETTING BACK UP AND NOT BREAKING THAT WAIST LOCK AS HE TAKES XANDER PAYNE ALONG WITH HIM FOR THE RIDE, SETTING HIM UP FOR YET ANOTHER GERMAN SUPLEX — AND IT CONNECTS! A SECOND GERMAN SUPLEX, THIS TIME WITH A RELEASE AS XANDER PAYNE CRASH-LANDS ON HIS SHOULDER! EVERY BONE IN HIS BODY IS UNDER SERIOUS PRESSURE RIGHT NOW! XANDER SHOULD FORGET ABOUT ESCAPING FROM PAIN FOR PRIDE WITH THE NEW BREED TITLE! HE SHOULD THINK ABOUT HIS HEALTH, ABOUT HIS FAMILY!

Bari: Those are two things the immense gravity of Pain for Pride makes wrestlers forget — that they’ve got a family, that they’ve got their health — because these guys are out here risking everything! The Revenant is back up to his feet favoring the side of his thigh after that splash from Damon Diesel landed awkwardly on him, and now Damon Diesel looks to take advantage as he launches himself into The Revenant, connecting with a clothesline into the corner — NO! The Revenant with a thumb to the eye prevents Damon Diesel from getting anything on him, obscuring Diesel’s vision, and now yanking him by the throat and giving him a “thumbs down” sign! We know what that gesture means as The Revenant hoists Damon Diesel high in the air, and he’s just holding him there, demonstrating his impressive strength as Damon helplessly kicks his legs in the air trying to get out of this, now trying to elbow The Revenant, but his elbows won’t reach The Revenant’s head, and The Revenant connects with a vicious, prolonged, insult-to-injury version of The Judge! The Revenant hooks the leg of Damon Diesel for the cover! Ballgame!

Ref: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!…. TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!…..

Stew-O: BUT A FOREARM SMASH OUT OF NOWHERE FROM THE GUY EVERYBODY FORGOT ABOUT, ALEX BOWDEN, BREAKS UP THE PIN! THIS MATCH IS GOING TO CONTINUE AS ALEX BOWDEN SAVED THE DAY FOR THREE MEN IN THIS MATCHUP AND MAY HAVE RUINED IT FOR THE REVENANT! ALEX BOWDEN IMMEDIATELY GETS UP TO HIS FEET, NOT WANTING TO LET THIS MOMENT PASS HIM BY, AND CONNECTS WITH AN ELBOW DROP TO THE BACK OF THE REVENANT’S HEAD! ALEX BOWDEN TAKES THE REVENANT BY THE ARM AND FORCES HIM TO HIS FEET, ALL THE WAY TO A COMPLETE VERTICAL BASE, THROWING HIM INTO THE CORNER — BUT HE’S INTERCEPTED BY XANDER PAYNE! HOW??? XANDER PAYNE CONNECTS WITH A CRUSHING POP-UP POWERBOMB, SENDING THE REVENANT BACK-FIRST INTO THE MAT AND KICKING HIM OUT OF THE RING IMMEDIATELY AFTERWARD AS IF HE WERE THROWING HIM IN A GARBAGE DISPOSAL! XANDER PAYNE IS JAWING AT THE LAID-OUT REVENANT, BUT THIS IS GOING TO GIVE ALEX BOWDEN AN OPPORTUNITY TO CAPITALIZE AS HE CHARGES FORWARD AT XANDER PAYNE, BUT IT’S PAYNE WITH AN ELBOW TO ALEX BOWDEN, AND NOW PAYNE SENDS DAMON DIESEL PLUNGING UNDER THE BOTTOM ROPE AND TO THE OUTSIDE WITH HIS FEET! PAYNE CHARGES FORWARD AT ALEX BOWDEN, AND IT’S BOWDEN WHO MIRACULOUSLY TRANSITIONS THE WILD CHARGE INTO A SMALL PACKAGE! NEW CHAMPION!!!

Ref: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!.. TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!…. THRRRR—

Bari: BUT A KICKOUT AT THE VERY LAST POSSIBLE MOMENT BY XANDER PAYNE!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Stephie Love: The winner of this match by pinfall… AND THE NEWWWWWWW EAW NEW BREEDDDD CHAMPIONNNNNN!!!!… XANDERRRRRR PAYNEEEEE!!!!!

(Xander Payne is handed the title from the timekeeper’s area as he drops on both knees and kisses his title, hooking under it with both of his hands. He gets up as the referee raises his arm appearing wholly satisfied with himself but utterly exhausted)

Stew-O: XANDER DID IT! XANDER UNSEATED THE REVENANT FROM HIS NEW BREED THRONE TONIGHT, AND THIS IS GOING TO BE A MOMENT XANDER PAYNE REMEMBERS FOR YEARS TO COME, ONE HE’LL NEVER LET THE REVENANT, DAMON DIESEL, AND ALEX BOWDEN FORGET!

Talib: THE REVENANT WASN’T PINNED, BUT HE DIDN’T NEED TO BE! XANDER PAYNE IS ON TOP OF THE NEW BREED RIGHT NOW AS HE CLAIMS THAT TITLE, AND NOBODY ELSE CAN TELL HIM OTHERWISE!

Stew-O: What a moment for the guy. This is a pivotal chapter in the story he’s writing in EAW, and I just can’t wait to see what he does next!

( The camera brings us to one of the various dining rooms, where various geriatric CWF legends are gathered around a table eating and playing bingo in front of the television such as Gary V, King Kjors, Maya Rose, Runyan, Sgt. Pepper and Shane101. )

( Gary V reaches out his feeble, shaky old arthritic hands into his bowl of olives and slowly lifts an olive up to his mouth before swallowing it. )

Maya Rose: BINGO!!! GIMMIE ALL YOUR MONEY!

( The other CWF legends grown and pull out their wallets, slap money on the table and slowly – and painfully – get up to their feet. Maya Rose gets up and walks away on her walker cackling, and the other CWF dinosaurs walk away from the table on their walkers as well. )

( Gary V is the only one too senile to even know what’s going on. He believes the game is still going on, and he grabs another olive from the bowl and drops it into his mouth with his shaky old hand. )

( Suddenly — Gary V chokes on the olive, and begins coughing and choking before he drops to the floor, seemingly dead. )

( Soon after, a horrified Johnny Ventura walks into the room wearing a lavish red and silver robe flooded with diamonds and rubys. )

Johnny Ventura: Oh no! This cannot be! It has happened once again! 2018 has claimed another victim!

Ventura: FIRST IT WAS STEPHEN HAWKING!
THEN IT WAS FREDO SANTANA!
THEN IT WAS REVEREND BILLY GRAHAM!
THEN IT WAS CRAIG MACK!
THEN IT WAS BARBARA BUSH!
THEN IT WAS AVICII!
THEN IT WAS VERNE TROYER!
THEN IT WAS ANTHONY BOURDAIN!
THEN IT WAS XXXTENTACION!
AND NOW CWF LEGEND GARY V!

Ventura: NOW WE MUST ASK OURSELVES ONE HARROWING QUESTION…

( Johnny Ventura opens his robe, revealing the following words on his t-shirt: )

Ventura: WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO,
JUST WHOOOOOOOOOOOO
ISSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS
NNNNNNNNNNNNNEXTTTTTTTTTTTTT?!?!?!??!!??!?!?

( Gary V miraculously comes back to consciousness, spitting up the olive that he pretended he “choked on.” He sits up, and Johnny Ventura’s jaw drops in amazement. )

Gary V: I’LL TELL YER WHO’S NEXT SONNY. **to the hard camera** Cody Marshall, that Hardcore Championship reign is next! HAHAHAHA!

( Johnny Ventura hi-fives Gary V, and the two laugh hysterically as the scene comes to an end. )

( Return to Kinetic Field. )

( The camera cuts to Rebecca Sawyer standing in the ring as she holds the microphone in front of the 100,000+ in attendance at Pain for Pride Festival. )

Rebecca Sawyer: The following contest is scheduled for one fall!

Crowd: ONE FALL!

Rebecca Sawyer: And it is a CAREER VS. FACE PAINT MATCH!

(“Can’t Be Touched” by Roy Jones Jr. hits as Terry Chambers comes out to the stage taking in the spectacle that is Pain for Pride. The crowd appears divided with some cheering him on and others booing. Some of the haters are shown wearing Nemesis style face paint. )

Rebecca Sawyer: Introducing first from Detroit, Michigan weighing in at 287 pounds… “THE BARBARIC CARNIVORE” TERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRY CHAMBERSSSSS!!!!!

(Terry Chambers walks down towards the ring hugging a woman at ringside before he slides into the ring.)

Kawajai: Terry’s family is joining us sitting in the front row here tonight as honored guests! His beautiful wife Trinity sitting with his kids! Wow look at how many kids that man has, it’s enough to start his own colony! This match has become very personal with Nemesis even taking shots at Terry’s family!

Nick Angel: Look I get it if you don’t particularly like Terry Chambers. He is usually an angry and sadistic son of a bitch when he steps in that ring! But when a man’s family is involved you have to feel a little bit of sympathy for him. It’s just human nature to protect your loved ones!

(The screen focuses on a titantron a video flashing the many different face paint styles Nemesis has worn over the years plays as the beginning guitar riff for “Let’s Go All The Way” by Insane Clown Posse begins to play, it cuts off to Broken Down by Sevendust. Nemesis walks out onto the top of the entrance ramp sporting a special Blue and Silver face paint for tonight. )

Rebecca Sawyer: And his opponent from Long Island, New York weighing in at 225 pounds… “THE TATTOOED NIGHTMARE” NEMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMESISSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(Nemesis makes his way down to the ring as he blows kisses towards Terry’s wife. )

Nick Angel: Nemesis with a sick smile as Terry looks livid and the referee is holding him back from going after Nemesis!

Kawajai: Nemesis a sick bastard but this is most likely a strategy. He is trying to get into the head of Terry Chambers and by the looks of things it is working!

Nick Angel: Nemesis now entering the ring as the referee calls for the bell!!!

(DING! DING! DING!)

Kawajai: We are underway as this very personal contest begins! These two men are putting everything on the line and will do whatever it takes to get the win here tonight!

Kawajai: The kickout by Nemesis! Another close call there but the match will continue. Both men back up as they look at each other warily. Nemesis smiling sadistically from behind that facepaint as Terry’s family in the front row is shown standing up to root him on. They size each other up as they lock up in the middle of the ring… but Nemesis stomps hard on the foot of Terry Chambers who staggers back surprised by Nemesis’s tactics.

Nick Angel: Terry’s family popping at ringside as I notice that his wife is mad fine! :whew:

Kawajai: She is looking type good tonight. But we are focusing on the match not Terry’s hot wife as he kicks Nemesis hard in the gut and grabs him by the neck. SNAP DDT CONNECTS!! Terry not going for the cover yet as he pulls up Nemesis into the corner throwing punches into his face! Terry looking enraged as he pummels his opponent nonstop with rapid shots forcing the referee to push him off!

Nick Angel: Nemesis looks like he is out cold! Terry grabs the arm of Nemesis as he locks in a Cross Armbar! Terry wrenching hard at the arm of Nemesis who still seems to be motionless! I don’t know if he is even conscious enough to tap out! Terry continues to pull on the arm of Nemesis trying to tear it out the socket! The referee checking on Nemesis who isn’t responding. He lifts his other arm testing to see if he is still alive but it falls limply down to the mat! The referee checking again. He lifts the arm up…

Kawajai: And the arm stays up!

Nick Angel: Nemesis has regained consciousness and he is fighting back! Nemesis dragging himself across the ring! Can he reach the ropes?!?!?

Kawajai: He makes it! Nemesis gets one of his feet on the ropes as the referee demands that Terry release the Cross Armbar! Terry reluctantly lets it go after giving the arm of his opponent one last savage tug causing a loud high pitched scream to come out the mouth of Nemesis! Terry back up as he waits for Nemesis from behind grabbing him… Terry pushes Nemesis forward but grabs him by the arm and yanks him back… and demolishes him with a vicious Clothesline! NO!

(DING! DING! DING!)

Rebecca Sawyer: Here is your winner… TERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRY CHAMBERSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

( “Can’t Be Touched” by Roy Jones Jr. hits as Terry Chambers has his hand raised in victory )

Kawajai: Terry Chambers did it! He has achieved his Pain for Pride moment and saved his career!

Nick Angel: Terry put it all on the line tonight and he has done it! Terry’s career is safe but Nemesis’ identity is no more!!!

( Terry’s family enters the ring as the referee hands him a towel to wipe the paint out of his eyes. )

Nick Angel: Oh dayum Terry’s wife tho! :noah:

Kawajai: What the hell Nick… That’s a man’s wife you are talking about!

Nick Angel: No not like that Kawa… Look at what she has!

(Terry’s wife is shown entering the ring with a rag and cleaning supplies in her apron as she walks over to Nemesis.)

Kawajai: UH OH! THE CHAMBERS FAMILIA IS ABOUT TO EXACT SOME REVENGE! TERRY’S WIFE, TRINITY, IS CLOSING IN ON NEMESIS!

Nemesis: NO STOP! PLEASE! I BEG YOU!

(Nemesis is shown trying to crawl away desperately from Terry’s wife.)

Terry’s Wife: Shut the fuck up you creepy little Juggalo looking freak! I’m going to expose your ugly little face in front of the entire world!

(Terry stands back with the rest of his family as he cheers his wife on! She sprays cleaning supplies into the eyes and cuts on the face of Nemesis as he screams from the burning! Then she takes the rag and begins scrubbing the facepaint off his face!)

Nemesis: NO! DON’T LOOK AT ME! DON’T YOU FUCKING LOOK!

(Terry is shown laughing as Nemesis breaks down in the ring covering his face laying in a pool of water and paint. Terry embraces his wife before he leaves with his family.)

Kawajai: What a touching moment here at Pain for Pride Festival where we care about family values. 🙂

Nick Angel: Congratulations to Terry Chambers here tonight on his big victory! As for Nemesis… this man may never be quite the same again!

( The camera transitions over to the backstage area, as it reveals Terry Chambers walking down across the halls, with a smug grin on his face. It appears that he is about to depart from Pain For Pride XI as he makes a turn towards the exit to the arena, but backstage announcer Sofia Clarke intervenes at the right moment. )

Sofia Clarke: Terry, aren’t you gonna stick around and enjoy the rest of Pain For Pride?

Terry Chambers: Nah, now that I’m finished slapping around masked freak shows I’m going back to the hotel room to plow my wife.

Sofia: Oop. Well I don’t mean to intrude, but in hindsight of this match do you think it might have been unfair that your career was on the line here tonight at the biggest stage of sports… while only Nemesis’ facepaint was?

(Terry offers a sly chuckle. )

Terry: It is unfair, it’s unfair for Nemesis. If I lose my EAW career it would no doubt hurt my family, but as a man I would have to dust myself off and get back on my feet because I actually have a reason to move on. However for a man like Nemesis… his facepaint isn’t just a shield from that hideous ugly face, his facepaint is his identity. It’s his reason to exist, it’s what gives freakshows like him a purpose. Now that he doesn’t have that, he’s nothing more than a dead man walking with nothing to live for. How about them apples, Nemmy. 🙂

( Terry turns to leave, but turns back to Sofia. )

Terry: And you know what? I’m glad it all turned out this way. All these years, I have been waiting for a memorable Pain For Pride moment that would put my skills to the test—to show the world why I am truly the goddamn man that needs to be taken seriously. But no, there always seems to be a slight inconvenience for me when I want to create an impact here… and the last straw was Nemesis.

Nemesis convinced me that the only way to truly succeed within this company… is just to embarrass people to the point where they would just be too afraid to breathe in the same air as me. With Nemesis, the damage is already done. That facepaint was the last shred of dignity that man had, and I can greatly tell you all that you will NEVER be hearing the name Nemesis ever again.

( Several cheers and jeers can be heard in the background, as Terry’s facial expression completely transforms into sheer hatred. )

Terry: As far as I’m concerned now, my sights are set towards a new goal: The EAW Interwire Championship. I don’t care who wins between Ahren and Lars in that match, I just want them both to know that I am not going to sit down and let them have a couple of days or weeks with the title. Now that I’m done with the face painted freaks, I’m going for the gold. I have bills to pay and I have mouths to feed, and I will become the most ruthless son of a Bitch to protect what’s mine–

Kawajai: LOOK OUT!!! EREBUS JENNINGS WITH A CHEAP SHOT FROM BEHIND! AND EREBUS PUMMELS TERRY WITH A BALLISTIC SET OF BLOWS TO THE SKULL, BUSTING HIM OPEN WITH THOSE HARD SHOTS! SOFIA CLARKE IS GETTING THE HELL OUT OF DODGE, AND EREBUS TAKES TERRY UP AND SENDS HIM FLYING INTO SEVERAL PRODUCTION CRATES!

( Erebus drops down on one knee while grabbing Terry’s head. )

Erebus *off mic*: You fool

(Erebus lays a series of vicious punches across the face of Chambers, with his head ricocheting up and down off the bare ground. )

Erebus *off mic*: You’re a virus.

Kawajai: EREBUS DRAGS TERRY UP, AS OFFICIALS SURROUND THEM TRYING TO GET THEM TO STOP THE ASSAULT! AND A BLACK HOLE SLAM!!!! RIGHT INTO A SET OF CONCRETE STEPS!!!

( Erebus slowly rises a heavily fatigued Terry Chambers from off the floor, as Erebus gently pats the bruised face of Terry, who shows no signs of life. )

Erebus *whispering*: Meet your new and latest nightmare…

(Jennings drifts away from the vicious scene, as security officials finally scatter all over the unconscious Terry Chambers, as drops of blood can be seen dripping from all over his face. He coughs out brutally as he bemoans with pain).

( The graphic comes across the screen presenting an animation of the Unified Tag Team Championship belts. )

( DING! DING! DING! )

Aaron Fitzpatrick: The following match is a TRIPLE THREAT TAG TEAM CONTEST SCHEDULED FOR ONE FALL!!! AND IT IS FOR THE EAW UNIFIED TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIPS!!!!!!!!

( “Warriors” by Imagine Dragons hits the massive sound system, and Mike Shaw rushes out to the stage closely followed by Sam Steele. The two hype each other up, screaming into each others faces and make their way down the massive ramp shortly after. )

Aaron Fitzpatrick: Introducing first, weighing in at a combined weight of 207 POUNDS!!! THE TEAM OF SAMUEL STEELE…..MICHAEL SHAW… THEEEEEEEEE DRAGOOOOOOOOON SLLLAYYYYEEEEEEERSSS!!!!!

Pierre: Look at these two! You can tell just by their infectious energy and their primal yells that they were practically born to be on this stage! This is a duo that have undergone various obstacles all season; they’ve taken every hurdle in stride however, and have fought as well as earned their way into this massive event for what is without a doubt a MASSIVE opportunity!

Deadprez: Let’s find out if The Dragon Slayers can slay the dragon and dethrone two of the greatest Elitists of all time, all while fending off two other world class opponents at the same time!

( “This Charming Man” by The Smiths plays, and Charlie Marr saunters out to the stage alongside his tag team partner, Daryl Kinkade. The two are wearing colors of green and gold on their attire, and they marvel at the massive audience that – from their view – seems to go on for miles. )

Aaron Fitzpatrick: THEIR OPPONENTS! First, hailing from London, England, they weigh in tonight at a combined weight of 455 POUNDS!!!!! THE TEAM OF DARRRYLLLL KINKAAADE AND CHARRRRRLIIIEEEEE MARRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!

Pierre: These two young London athletes are gifted perhaps beyond measure! There is no reason why they shouldn’t both turn out to be major players in this game! For all intents & purposes this ought to be their first Pain for Pride of many, however Kinkade and Marr are both willing to stake everything on this match!

Deadprez: For sure, they benefit greatly from being under the tutelage of Rex McAllister, and one thing Rex has told them both is that while it’s all fine and good to be the future, in situation like this the future doesn’t matter! It’s about the moment, and this moment for them is about winning!

( Kinetic Field goes for dark for a brief moment, as the crowd murmur amongst themselves. A few moments later, a single voice pierces through the silence and is heard throughout the entire arena. )

‘WHAT IS LOVE?’

‘BABY DON’T HURT ME’

‘DON’T HURT ME, NO MORE’

‘BABY DON’T HURT ME’

‘DON’T HURT ME NO MORE’

( The instrumental to “What is Love” by Haddaway begins to play as lights flash throughout the entire Kinetic Cathedral. The face of Haddaway himself is shown as he’s being raised from inside the large stage. As the platform rises, it turns out Haddaway is on a rainbow themed float filled with provocatively dressed male and drag queen dancers. )

‘WHAT IS LOVE?’

‘YEEEAAHH!’

( The Pain for Pride Festival logo is atop the structure with ‘Pride’ in rainbow colors. Sheriff DEDEDE is seen dancing and shaking his crotch, and Cameron Ella Ava is smiling waving as both are standing below the logo, dressed as Superman and Wonder Woman respectively. They’re wearing their Unified Tag Team Championships; and DEDEDE is wearing his signature sheriff vest, gay cowboy hat, and aviator shades over his Superman costume. )

‘I DON’T WHY YOU’RE NOT THERE’

‘I GIVE YOU MY LOVE BUT YOU DON’T CARE’

‘SO WHAT IS RIGHT AND WHAT IS WRONG’

‘GIVE ME A SIGN’

(As the float goes down the ramp, the phrases ‘LOVE IS ELITE’, ‘LOVE IS THE ANSWER’, and ‘LOVE IS WRESTLING’ can be seen on the side of the float. )

Aaron Fitzpatrick: AND LASTLY, THEY ARE THE EEEEEEEEEE AAAAAAA WWWWWWWWWW UNIFIED TAG TEAM CHAMPIOOOOOOOOOONS!!!! “THE GODDESS”, “THE SHERIFF”, CAMERON ELLA AVA AND MISTERRRRRR DEEEEEEE DEEEEEEE DEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

( DEDEDE is seen grinding amongst the male dancers with the Tag Team Title hanging from his mouth. Cameron is in the middle of two handsome gentlemen swinging her hips and shaking her booty while holding up her Tag Title. Several dancers emerge from the crowd, dancing down the ramp alongside the float as rainbow-themed balloons can be seen flying up from various parts of the cathedral. )

‘NO I DON’T KNOW – WHAT CAN I DO?’

‘WHAT ELSE CAN I SAY? IT’S UP TO YOU’

‘I KNOW WE’RE ONE JUST ME AND YOU’

‘I CAN’T GO ON’

(The float stops at the end of the ramp. The handsome young dancers assist Cam and DEDEDE off of the float. The Sheriff kisses his partner’s hand, and holds it as they skip over to the steps as they make their way into the ring. They go to opposite corners as they climb the turnbuckles to raise their EAW Unified Tag Team Championship belts. They jump down and pose in the middle of the ring as the final part of the outro plays )

( The music dies down and all three teams are in the ring. Charlie Marr looks absolutely disgusted by what he just saw. The referee does a coin flip to determine which two teams will start the match. )

( DING! DING! DING! )

Pierre: It’ll be Daryl Kinkade starting off his first ever Pain for Pride showing against fellow Pain for Pride novice, Mike Shaw as these two rookie Elitists are participating on a bigger stage than either of them could have ever imagined! Their teammates stand on opposite corners, and the Unified Tag Team Champions stand by in their corners watching perhaps with bated breath. Kinkade, the technically proficient prettyboy born in Norwich who grew up in London shoots for the waistlock, managing to gain a rear waistlock hold on Shaw. Shaw escapes with the hammerlock and transitions into a nice side headlock, and Kinkade stomps on the foot of Shaw before using all of his strength to pry himself out of the headlock. Kinkade presses he knee into the back of Shaw’s leg, and quickly shoots the half before applying a headscissors with his legs wrapped tightly around the head of Shaw. Mike Shaw is doing his damndest to escape out of that, fighting for as much leverage as he can get, and Kinkade instead decides to deliver a LEG-RANA!

Deadprez: Mike Shaw with the loud thud forehead first into the mat! The two scramble back up, with Shaw needing support of the ropes, and Kinkade delivers a kick to the ribs! Shaw catches the boot however and yanks him into a LOUD right hand to the mouth! Kinkade fires back with several forearms on concession, and the referee pleads for Kinkade to lighten up on those ferocious forearm blows! Sam Steele rushes across the apron to attemt to tag himself in, but Kinkade yanks Mike Shaw away from the ropes with a waistlock! Kinkade looks like he’s going for a German!

Pierre: Not so fast! Mike Shaw snatches both wrists, drops himself to his back and brings Kinkade to the floor with an ankle trip! Mike Shaw transitions from the temporary achilles lock into an STF! But Kinkade smartly garners enough leverage in quick enough time, and he slings Shaw off of his shoulder to send him rolling across the ring! Shaw comes right back for Kinkade, but Kinkade with a horizontal drop to all fours on the mat prompting Shaw to jump over him, and once he reaches the other ropes Kinkade is already right behind him and looking for a GERMAN SUPLEX ONCE AGAIN!!!!

Deadprez: Mike Shaw is hanging onto the ropes! He refuses to be sent over, and Kinkade is tugging as hard as he can – but instead Shaw centers his balance and manages to get close enough to his partner Sam Steele for the tag! Now Kinkade manages to take Shaw off his feet for an o’connor roll pin! However Mike Shaw is not the legal man, and SAM STEELE LANDS A LOW ROUNDHOUSE TO THE FACE OF KINKADE WHILE HOLDS IN THE O’CONNOR ROLL PIN! Now Mike Shaw rolls through the o’connor roll and converts it into a WHEELBARROW LIFT FROM SHAW INTO A LOOOOUD DROPKICK TO THE SOLAR PLEXUS FROM STEELE!!! WHEELBARROW FACEBUSTER FROM SHAW RIGHT AFTER IT!!! Nice doubleteam melee! Kinkade is sitting up holding his face in pain, and THE DRAGON SLAYERS DELIVER PUNT KICKS IN STEREO, ONE TO THE CHEST FROM SHAW WHILE STEELE KICKS HIM IN THE BACK! And both Dragon Slayers hit a simultaneous fist drop to the back of the head and elbow drop to the small of the back! Charlie Marr is attempting to rush back in the ring, but the referee stops him from jumping the gun, before Mike Shaw steps onto his corner of the apron.

Pierre: The legal Dragon Slayer, Sam Steele continuing the dissection of Kinkade with a couple of well placed stomps to the shoulder, and a stomp to the left arm! Steele snatches the wrist and wrenches that left arm bringing Kinkade up to his feet out of response to that painful stimuli, and Kinkade is fighting back with a shoot kick! Knee to the midsection! Steele RE-WRENCHES the arm bringing Kinkade to a knee and hits a shoot kick to the chest! Now Steele takes Kinkade over to his team corner to tag Mike Shaw back in, and Steele wrenches the left arm over the top rope to use it as extra torque, MEANWHILE SHAW SPRINTS ACROSS THE RING, RUNS OFF THE ROPES! BLIND TAG ON SHAW BY CAMERON ELLA AVA! AND SHAW CHARGES BACK WITH A RUNNING BIG BOOT TO THE TWISTED LEFT ARM OF KINKADE! Daryl Kinkade drops to the mat holding his arm after the doubleteam assault, and Sam Steele spotted the blind tag from Cam, so Steele comes charging at Cameron Ella Ava! Ava responds with a low dropkick to the shin! Mike Shaw rushes in – Ava cuts him off with a reverse atomic drop! And a DOUBLE DDT ON THE KNEELING DRAGON SLAYERS BY THE CHAMPION CAMERON ELLA AVA! BUT THE DRAGON SLAYERS COUNTER WITH A DOUBLE FLAPJACK! DOESN’T CONNECT! Cam lands on her feet, rushes up to the middle ropes of an unoccupied turnbuckle, and hits a kick to the face of an oncoming Mike Shaw! And a dizzying slap to the oncoming Sam Steele! Now Cam leaps off the turnbuckle for a BULLDOG ON SAM STEELE, AND DROPKICK ON MIKE SHAW ON THE WAY DOWN! NICE BULLDOG DROPKICK COMBO!

Deadprez: The Dragon Slayers go rolling out of the ring at both ends of the corner, and here comes Daryl Kinkade with a school boy roll up from an off-guard Cam!

Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWWWWWWWWWWWO-

Deadprez: Cam rolls out of that roll up! Now she transitions NICELY INTO AN ARMBAR ON DARYL KINKADE’S SORE LEFT ARM!!! NICE MOVE BY 1/2 OF THE UNIFIED TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS, AND CHARLIE MARR IS VOCALLY WILLING KINKADE ON TO DRAG HIMSELF TO THE ROPES AS QUICKLY AS HE CAN! Kinkade does just that, after a short bout of panicking he’s found a way to get the free arm around the bottom rope! Cam releases the hold upon the referee’s request, and she follows up with a STUNGUN into the ropes, faceplanting a recovering Kinkade over the middle rope! Cam lands down at ringside while Kinkade rolls around holding his face, and Kinkade finds himself draped over the bottom rope, just for Cam to back up at ringside and deliver an APRON DRIVE BY DROPKICK TO THE SIDE OF KINKADE’S HEAD! That has Kinkade rolling away and stumbling over to his own team corner to desperately see himself out of this match! Charlie Marr is in this with the tag! Now Charlie Marr steps into the ring and locks eyes with the EAW Legend and Hall of Famer Cameron Ella Ava, one of the greatest competitors to ever do it; but to Marr she’s nothing more than the obstacle between him and a win at his first Pain for Pride!

Pierre: The two begin to lock horns with a collar and elbow tie up, which is something you don’t usually expect from Cameron. Fatigue will most likely be a factor tonight, she just got through a thrilling contest with Zakki in what was Haruna Sakazaki’s final bout as an EAW Elitist. Now she’s locking up with a 240 pound chiseled young stallion from the United Kingdom! Marr easily gets the waistlock on her and delivers an ELEVATED BELLY TO BELLY BODYSLAM TO BRING CAM DOWN TO THE MAT! Cam doesn’t look too rattled by that, however Marr clings to the momentum tighter than he’s clinging to Cam’s waist as he sends her around the ring with a mat roll. Now he takes Cam up from the mat and is looking for a BIG TIME REAR WAISTLOCK MAT SLAM! But Cameron counters out of it with a hip toss on the way down! Marr comes charging back at her with a clothesline, and Cam ducks that to spring right off of the middle ropes with a SPRINGBOARD MOONSAULT! TAKING DOWN THE STANDING MARR! Charlie Marr is recovering quickly, and Cam runs the ropes to take him back down with a dropkick to the side of the head!

Deadprez: IN COME THE DRAGON SLAYERS, LOOKING FOR REVENGE AFTER THAT BULLDOG DROPKICK COMBO! MIKE SHAW WITH A RUNNING EPIC KICK TO THE FACE — CAM COUNTERS WITH A BEAUTIFUL LEG SWEEP TO TAKE SHAW DOWN! SAM STEELE WITH THE KICK TO THE GUT!

Pierre: No! Cam catches the left leg under her right arm! AND DARYL KINKADE COMES IN FROM BEHIND WITH THE BACKSTABBER TO CAMERON FROM BEHIND! THAT BACKSTABBER BRINGS CAM DOWN WHILE CAM SIMULTANEOUSLY HITS A DRAGONSCREW LEG WHIP ON SAM STEELE! AND THAT EXTRA VELOCITY HAS SAM STEELE GRABBING HIS LEG, SCREAMING ON IMPACT! Steele goes rolling back out of the ring holding the knee in a world of pain, and Daryl Kinkade is kicked out of the ring by the referee while Charlie Marr dumps Mike Shaw out of the ring through the ropes! Charlie Marr takes Cameron back off her feet with a running rolling elbow smash! Cam hits the mat and is taken back up by Marr, who bashes her face into the nearest turnbuckle and hits her with a big time knife edge chop, which can be heard deep into this massive audience! Now Marr with an Irish whip across the ring on Cam, and Cam crashes hard into the turnbuckle kidneys first! Charlie Marr goes bulldozing after her now – but CAM CUTS MARR OFF WITH A CORNER AIDED LIFTING KICK TO THE FACE! NOW CAM RUSHES OVER TO HER CORNER TO TAG IN MR. DEDEDE!!!

Pierre: NOT JUST YET! DARYL KINKADE YANKS DDD OFF OF THE APRON FROM BEHIND, JUST IN TIME! KINKADE COVERING A LOT OF GROUND IN THIS MATCH, BUT DDD DDD STARTS TO LIGHT UP KINKADE WITH A SERIES OF PUNCHES! DDD making Kinkade pay, he’s being backed up by those shots to the face, barely able to cover himself! Now DDD takes Kinkade by the nape of the neck and slings him over the barricade and into the timekeeper area! DDD comes right after Daryl Kinkade now, as the two are among the RABID fans here at Pain for Pride Festival! Kinkade leads DDD on a bit of a chase deep into this audience, but Kinkade catches him off guard with a big time shot to the jaw! Kinkade grabs DDD by the head and BASHES HIM FACE FIRST INTO A PRODUCTION TABLE! BUT DDD STOPS THE IMPACT WITH HIS HANDS, AND NEARLY SENDS HIM FLYING WITH A BIG TIME UPPERCUT! DDD grabs Kinkade off the ground and BASHES HIM FACE FIRST INTO SOME CLEARED CHAIRS! Meanwhile Charlie Marr in the ring has traded blows with Cameron, and after getting the upper hand he’s taken Cam taken to another corner where he’s bashed her face into the middle turnbuckle pad; she is eating an assortment of knee strikes courtesy of Marr! Those blows to the midsection are more than likely going to leave welts on the Goddess’ torso, and Marr backs away just to hit a EUROPEAN UPPERCUT INTO THE CORNER!! Cam is almost down to the ground, and Marr rushes to the parallel turnbuckle just to CHARGE BACK ACROSS THE RING WITH A RUNNING CORKSCREW EUROPEAN UPPERCUT!!!!

Deadprez: CAM DODGES THAT ONE, AND MARR HITS THE CORNER HARD AND IS DOWN ON HIS KNEES HOLDING HIS DAMAGED BICEP! OH GOD WAIT! WAIT! NOW LOOK AT THE DRAGON SLAYERS, THEY GRAB EACH OF CHARLIE MARR’S LEGS FROM RINGSIDE AT EACH SIDE OF THE TURNBUCKLE POST, AND MARR HAS NOWHERE TO RUN! HIS EYES IS WIDE OPEN IN FEAR! OH NO DON’T DO THIS! DON’T DO THIS!

Pierre: THE DRAGON SLAYERS WITH THEIR COMBINED STRENGTH YANK CHARLIE MARR GROIN FIRST INTO THE RINGPOST!!!!!!! OW OW OW! CHARLIE MARR IS SCREAMING FOR DEAR LIFE!!! NO MAN SHOULD FEEL THAT KIND OF PAIN!

Deadprez: The Dragon Slayers are at ringside hi-fiving each other after that just remorseless move right there! AND LOOK AT CAMERON!!! CAMERON SPRINGBOARDS TO THE TOP OF THAT SAME TURNBUCKLE TO TAKE BOTH MEMBERS OF THE DRAGON SLAYERS DOWN WITH A TOPE CON HILO TO THE OUTSIDE!!!!!

Pierre: NOT QUITE! BOTH OF THE DRAGON SLAYERS CATCH HER IN MID AIR!!! NOW THEY’RE HEADING OVER THIS WAY!!! OH LORD! OH LORD! DOUBLE POWERBOMB RIGHT INTO OUR ANNOUNCE TABLE!!!! PLANTING CAMERON RIGHT INTO OUR ANNOUNCE TABLE, OH DAMMIIT IT’S DESTROYED ALL OF OUR EQUIPMENT, BUT SOMEHOW THE TABLE HAS YET TO COLLAPSE! The Dragon Slayers throwing Cam’s life to the wind, she looks to be in a bad way here as she lays contorted over our announce desk! Steele and Shaw just decides to peel the tag team champion off of our desk and roll her back into the ring, meanwhile Charlie Marr is up to his feet, jelly legged and all, and not quite aware of where he even is right now considering he’s in need of the ring ropes for support. Mike Shaw slaps the shoulder of Charlie Marr to tag himself in and he tosses Marr through the ropes in similar fashion to how Marr booted him from the ring earlier. NOW CAMERON ELLA AVA TAGS IN MR. DEDEDE WHO’S MADE IT BACK TO THE APRON! IN COMES THE SHERIFF OF THE GAY MEAT COMMUNITY, SOARING OVER THOSE ROPES WITH HIS SUPERMAN CAPE WAVING IN THE WIND! He and Mike Shaw go charging at each other, and DDD gets Shaw right in the chest with a jumping knee! Shaw stands his ground, by DDD follows up on a doubled over Mike Shaw with a flurry of right and left knee strikes to the midsection! Shaw is backed into the ropes, and DDD Irish whips him across the ring, but Shaw reverse the whip by slinging himself down to the mat and taking DDD along with him via a SMALL PACKAGE PIN!!!

Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOO-

Deadprez: DDD kicks out of the small package! The two race to their feet, Shaw goes for a running right hand, but DDD WHACKS HIM WITH A RIGHT UPPERCUT! LEFT PUNCH TO THE COLON, AND A JUMPING FOREARM TAKEDOWN! Shaw goes down, recovers, is sent into the ropes and is taken down yet again by a JUMPING FOREARM TAKEDOWN! DDD rushes over to the ropes, SLINGSHOT FOREARM SMASH TO THE OUTSIDE TO TAKE CHARLIE MARR BACK DOWN! And now The Sheriff hypes up the ringside fans before sprinting up the steel steps, climbing up the turnbuckle and delivering a DIVING SHOULDERBLOCK FROM THE TOP ROPE TO TAKE MIKE SHAW DOWN! AND A HOOK OF BOTH LEGS!

Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO-

Pierre: Kick out by Mike Shaw! Mr. DEDEDE lures Mike Shaw onto a doggystyle position, and DDD is saddling his back perhaps looking for a camel clutch!

Deadprez: UHHHH, WHAT THE HELL??? DDD’S GRABBING MIKE SHAW BY HIS MUSTACHE FROM BEHIND, AND IS PANTOMIMING FUCKING HIS EAR! WHAT THE HELL DAWG?!?! HE’S THRUSTING HIS BULGE INTO MIKE SHAW’S EAR! THAT AIN’T HARLEM!

Pierre: It most certainly is not “harlem” Deadprez! And in retaliation Mike Shaw cuts DDD off with an elbow to the midsection! That sends DDD stumbling back, and Shaw follows up with a big time haymaker to the face! Taking DDD down to a knee! Shaw is standing over the 6 time World Champion and reigning Unified Tag Champion, and is battering stiff punches into the temple one after another in succession! Now he snapmares DDD to the mat, backs into the ropes and hits a SHINING WIZARD INTO THE BACK OF DDD’S NECK! He follows up with a lateral cover!

Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWWWWWWWWWWWWW-

Deadprez: DDD kicks out right at two! Mike Shaw snaps in a neck crank, and takes DDD up to his feet with that uncomfortable looking headlock while slowly walking over to his own partner’s corner. Meanwhile Cam and Marr are at ringside recovering, with Kinkade at his own corner watching intently. Sam Steele is tagged back in, and DDD is stunned with that neck crank which has DDD’s head yanked to the side in an uncomfortable torque, and Steele fires away with a flurry of stomps to the midsection of a trapped DDD in the corner! The ref verbally admonishes both of these guys, and the two relent although in a triple threat tag team match like this disqualification does not apply. Oh now Shaw hits a shoot kick to the chest of The Gawd! Sam Steele brings DDD up from the mat while Shaw is back on the apron, and the well oiled unit of The Dragon Slayers continue to work together as Steele tags Shaw back in! Frequent tags win tag matches Pierre!

Pierre: The Dragon Slayers looking to prove that correct Prez, as they bring DDD up from the ground and go for a double Irish whip! DDD hits the ropes, but catches himself from rebounding off of them, and Mike Shaw goes for a JUMPING KNEE TO THE FACE!!! BUT DDD CATCHES THE ONCOMING LEG, PERHAPES LOOKING FOR A LEGTRAP EXPLODER SUPLEX TO THE OUTSIDE!!! SAM STEELE GOES CHARGING TO STOP IT WITH A RUNNING BOOT, BUT DDD DROPS SHAW FORWARD, AND OHHHHHHHHHHHH! SHAW LANDS GROIN FIRST INTO THE ONCOMING LEG OF HIS OWN PARTNER FROM BEHIND! SAM STEELE CAN’T BELIEVE THE MISTAKE HE JUST MADE, AND DDD DOES A ROPE-ASSISTED BACKFLIP TO THE APRON JUST TO FOLLOW UP WITH A SLINGSHOT SPEAR!!!!!!!!!! SPEAR FROM THE APRON, INTO THE RING, MOWING DOWN SAM STEELE!!!!!!!! THAT HAS THE CROWD ERUPTING, AND THAT SENDS STEELE ROLLING TO THE CENTER OF THE RING HOLDING HIS RIBS! A LEGAL MIKE SHAW ROLLS OUTSIDE OF THE RING, WEAK-KNEED AFTER LANDING NUTS FIRST INTO THE LEG OF HIS OWN PARTNER — DDD!! DDD DOESN’T MISS A SINGLE BEAT, HE SPRINTS TO THE ROPES IN FRONT OF HIM AND REBOUNDS OFF THEM TO SPRING OUT OF THE RING!!! VINTAGE DEDEDE!!!!!!!! BRILLIANT HILO TAKES MIKE SHAW DOWN AT RINGSIDE!

Deadprez: You can’t let this man get that kind of offense dammit! Mr. DEDEDE with momentum during a Pain for Pride match is on the level of near invincibility, even if he is a flamboyant homosexual! And speaking of homosexual, DDD takes Mike Shaw back into the ring, and now he saddles his testicles on Mike Shaw’s face before hooking both legs for quite honestly the gayest pin I’ve ever seen in my life!

Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO-

Deadprez: A kickout by Mike Shaw! DDD drags Shaw closer to his team corner and he tags in his partner Cameron Ella Ava! DDD hits a couple of stomps to the head of Shaw who’s on the ground while Cam is ascending to the top rope, and following this DDD makes the climb a long with Cam. DDD is standing up on the middle rope… and NOW DDD HOISTS CAMERON UP IN THE AIR MILITARY PRESS STYLE! CAMERON DOES A WONDER WOMAN POSE FOR THE AUDIENCE, AND DDD DROPS CAM WITH AN ELEVATED FROGSPLASH INTO MIKE SHAW!!!! A HOOK OF BOTH LEGS AFTER THAT BIG TIME MOVE!

Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO-

Pierre: HERE COMES DARYL KINKADE TO BREAK UP THE PIN! Kinkade saves the match for himself, and now he’s hammering forearm shots right into the face of Cameron Ella Ava! DDD steps through the ropes to come to Cam’s aid, but Charlie Marr grabs DDD by the leg from ringside while he has one foot already in the ring! DDD trying to fight his leg away, AND KINKADE CAPITALIZES OFF OF THE DISTRACTION WIPING DDD OUT WITH THE BLACK MASS!!!!! REVERSE SPINNING ROUNDHOUSE KICK CRACKS DDD ACROSS THE JAW, SENDING HIM THROUGH THE ROPES AND INTO THE CLUTCHES OF CHARLIE MARR, WHO DELIVERS! OHHHH!!! JACKKNIFE POWERBOMB INTO THE DIAMOND PLATE BOTTOM OF THE MASSIVE RAMP!!! DDD’S BODY JUST SMACKS RIGHT INTO THAT UNFORGIVING METAL!!! Cameron Ella Ava is up standing and leaning against the turnbuckle holding her nose, and Charlie Marr sprints into the ring while Daryl Kinkade sprints out of it! Both partners trading places! NOW LOOK AT DARYL KINKADE, HE’S SPRINGS UP ON TOP OF THE BARRICADE NEAR THE BOTTOM OF THE RAMP! KINKADE IS STANDING RIGHT OVER MR. DEDEDE! AND DARYL KINKADE DELIVERS A BEAUTIFUL SHOOTING STAR PRESS OFF THE BARRICADE RIGHT ONTO DDD ON THE FLOOR!!!!!! CHARLIE MARR CHARGES AT AVA IN THE RING WITH A STIFFFFFF RUNNING BOOT INTO THE CORNER, STRAIGHT TO THE MIDSECTION!!! You can literally hear Cameron dry heaving after that NASTY kick! She can hardly even breathe! The referee is ordering Charlie Marr to exit the ring, and Mike Shaw is crawling desperately over to Sam Steele who has found a way to recover following that enormous slingshot spear he took from DDD earlier! Sam Steele wants to tag into this match, and Shaw is just inches away from giving himself a much needed tag out!

Deadprez: KINKADE JOGS AROUND THE RING AND OVER TO THE CORNER WHERE SAM STEELE IS, AND HE YANKS SAM STEELE OFF OF THE APRON BY HIS ONE LEG! OH WHAT A COUNTER!!! IN MIDAIR SAM STEELE COUNTERS WITH A HURRICANRANA TO TAKE KINKADE DOWN!!!! STEELE GETS BACK UP TO HIS FEET, TURNS AROUND — WHAM!!!! CHARLIE MARR FROM OUT OF NOWHERE WITH A RUNNING CORKSCREW EUROPEAN UPPERCUT TO TURN SAM STEELE INSIDE OUT!!! NOW MARR CLIMBS UP TO THE APRON AND TAGS HIMSELF IN ON A DESPERATE MIKE SHAW! BUT HE’S NOT QUITE DONE WITH SHAW!!!

Pierre: Charlie Marr from the ring apron has climbed up to the middle rope, and is beating Mike Shaw over the head with a flurry of punches!!! AND NOW HE HAS MIKE SHAW HOOKED! OH NO, OH HEAVENS NO!!!! CHARLIE MARR LOOKING FOR AN ELEVATED VERTICAL SUPLEX TO THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING!!!!!!!! MIKE SHAW IS FIGHTING FOR DEAR LIFE, BUT THE MUSCULAR POWERFUL CHARLIE MARR IS POWWWWERING, POWWWWWERING SHAW OFF OF HIS FEET ………

Deadprez: OH SHIT!!!!!! OH SHIT!!!!! SPEEEEEEEEEEEEEEARRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!! CAMERON SPRINGS OVER THE TOP ROPES, YES, OVER THE TOP ROPE WITH A SPEAR ON MARR!!!!!!! AND THAT TAKES A MAKESHIFT TOWER OF DOOM — HOISTED MIKE SHAW, ALONG WITH CHARLIE MARR AND CAMERON HERSELF — ALL FLYING OFF THE APRON AND CRASHING INTO DARYL KINKADE AND SAMUEL STEELE DOWN BELOW!!!!!!!!!!!

Pierre: ARE YOU SERIOUS?!?!?

Deadprez: ALL FIVE ELITISTS CRASH AND BURN INTO EACH OTHER!!!! BRO THIS WOMAN CAMERON ELLA AVA JUST TOOK OFF LIKE SHE WAS MICHAEL JORDAN!!!! I CAN’T EVEN BELIEVE WHAT I JUST SAW!!!

( We get a replay showing Charlie Marr on middle rope hoisting Mike Shaw for a vertical suplex, only for Cam to deliver a jumping spear sending Marr, Shaw and herself crashing into a recovering Daryl Kinkade and Sam Steele. )

Pierre: THAT MAY HAVE BEEN ONE OF THE GREATEST SPEARS I HAVE EVER SEEN! LOOK AT MR. DEDEDE, HE’S DRAGGING HIMSELF BACK UP CLUTCHING HIS RIBS AND EVEN HE LOOKS ABSOLUTELY BAFFLED BY WHAT HE SAW! THE ATHLETICISM OF CAMERON ELLA AVA, HER PENCHANT FOR PULLING OUT ALL OF THE STOPS DURING DO OR DIE SITUATIONS IS WHY SHE’S ONE OF THE GREATEST ELITISTS TO EVER WALK THE EARTH!

Deadprez: Time and time again we see Cam do the impossible, but I’ve got a feeling that will be on highlight reels for years to come! DDD walks over gingerly to the crash scene, and he comes to the assist of his tag team partner; Cam might have jacked herself up real bad with that landing to the outside! DDD helps Cam to her feet, Cam rolls back into the ring for reprieve, and DDD pulls Charlie Marr up from the floor before rolling him on to the ring apron as well. DDD rushes back over to his own corner and is calling for Cameron to tag him in! Cam isn’t all that far, but she’s definitely banged up after spiking herself on that dangerous but still incredible spear, and it more than likely took out as much from Cam as it did her opponents. NOW CAM GETS THE TAG TO BRING DDD BACK IN! DDD steps back in the ring, and he puts himself into position with a recovering Charlie Marr in sights! THE SHERIFF WANTS TO FINISH THIS RODEO, CHARLIE MARR SEEMS TO HAVE NO IDEA WHERE HE’S AT!!! DDD’S READY TO GIVE A PAINFUL REMINDER!!!! HE TAKES OFF RUNNING — ANOTHER SPEEEEEEEEEARRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!

Pierre: CHARLIE MARR INTERCEPTS THE SPEAR WITH A DOUBLE UNDERHOOK, RIDES DDD’S MOMENTUM DOWN TO THE MAT BEFORE MANEUVERING A GATOR ROLL BACK UP TO THEIR FEET, AND INTO THE QUEEN IS DEAD!!!!!! DOUBLE UNDERHOOK DDT DRILLS THE CHAMPION!!!!! WHAT AN INCREDIBLE COUNTER! CAM’S TOO WINDED TO DO A THING ABOUT IT!!!!! MARR HOOKS BOTH OF THE LEGS!!!!

Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! THRRRRRRRRRRRR-

Deadprez: SAM STEELE!!! SAM STEELE LITERALLY SHOOTS HIMSELF MORE THAN HALFWAY ACROSS THE RING WITH A SPRINGBOARD LEGDROP TO THE HEAD OF MARR TO MAKE THE SAVE!!!!!! WHAT A GUTSY SAVE FROM STEELE! DDD CRAWLS AWAY STILL ROCKED BY THAT DOUBLE UNDERHOOK DDT, AND NOW SAM STEELE CLIMBS UP TO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE WHILE MIKE SHAW IS BACK IN THE RING AND HOSTING CHARLIE MARR UP ONTO HIS SHOULDERS….. AND THE DRAGON SLAYERS GO FOR THE DRAGON DEVASTATION!!!! ELECTRIC CHAIR LIFT BY MIKE SHAW INTO THE TOP ROPE CLOTHESLINE FROM SAM STEELE!!!!

Pierre: HOLD YOUR HORSES, CHARLIE MARR DUCKS UNDER THE CLOTHESLINE WHILE SITTING ON SHAW’S SHOULDERS! SAMUEL STEELE LANDS ON HIS FEET, AND IN COMES DARYL KINKADE!!! CAPITALIZING ON A DISORIENTED SAM STEELE WITH THE BEAUTIFUL LIE!!!!!!!!!!BEAUTIFUL LIE FROM KINKADE!!!!!!!! CROSS LEGGED FISHERMANS BUSTER!!!!!!!

Deadprez: Charlie Marr lands on his feet behind Mike Shaw! ROUNDHOUSE KICK FROM MIKE SHAW! NO! MARR BLOCKS THE ROUNDHOUSE WITH A ROLLING ELBOW TO THE ONCOMING KNEE!!! SHAW TURNS AROUND HOLDING HIS BANGED UP KNEE — AND KINKADE SENDS MIKE SHAW OUT OF THE RING WITH A V-TRIGGER!!!!! CAMERON ELLA AVA IS TAGGED IN BY MR. DEDEDE BEHIND EVERYONE’S BACK! AND CAM CHARGES AT CHARLIE MARR WITH THE KNOCK BITCHES OUT!!!!!! GOT HIM!!!! MASSIVE FOREARM SMASH SENDS BLOOD FLYING OUT OF MARR’S MOUTH AND SENDS MARR BACK PEDALING INTO THE ROPES!!!! LOOK AT THIS!!! KINKADE TURNS CAM AROUND — BICYCLE KICK FROM KINKADE!!!!! CAM IS KNOCKED AROUND AND STUMBLES INTO MARR, WHO’S REBOUNDED OFF THE ROPES, AND MARR LEVELS HER WITH A PENDULUM CHARING CROSS!!!!!!!!!! PENDULUM REBOUND OFF THE ROPES INTO THAT DECAPITATING DISCUS LARIAT, TURNING CAMERON INSIDE OUT!!!!! JESUS CHRIST CAM JUST HAD THE SHIT KNOCKED OUT OF HER!!!!

Pierre: Charlie Marr is leaned against the turnbuckle with a glazed over look in his eyes after that EPIC response attack out of instinct! Marr can finish this thing right now with a cover, BUT BEFORE HE GETS A CHANCE IN COMES MR. DEDEDE!!! DDD CHARGES INTO THE RING, CHARLIE MARR COMES RIGHT AFTER HIM FOR ANOTHER CHARING CROSS!!!!!! DDD COMBAT ROLLS UNDER THE ONCOMING DISCUS CLOTHESLINE AND DELIVERS A RUNNING SPINNING BACKFIST TO THE JAW OF KINKADE!!! SPRINTS BACK OVER TO MARR — JUMPING FOREARM KNOCKDOWN FROM DDD! DDD SPRINTS OFF THE ROPES FOR A REBOUND, FOLLOWS UP WITH A LIGHTNING FAST CORKSCREW CROSSBODY ON A RECOVERING CHARLIE MARR!!!! HE CHARGES OVER TO KINKADE RECOVERING IN THE FAR CORNER — RRRRRRRRRRAPTUUUUUUUUUURE!!!!!!!!!! DDD DELIVERS THE HELLUVA KICK ON THE CORNERED DARYL KINKADE!!!! DDD SPRINGS OVER THE ROPES TO THE APRON NOW, AND HITS A RUNNING APRON SOCCER KICK TO THE FACE OF A RECOVERING MIKE SHAW AT RINGSIDE TO TAKE HIM BACK DOWN!!! THE GAWD ON A FRENZY HERE, AS HE SPOTS A RECOVERING CHARLIE MARR, AND JUMPS THROUGH THE ROPES INTO THE RING WITH A COMBAT ROLL INTO THE JUMPING DIAMOND CUTTER!!!!!! “DEMOLITION” CONNECTS FROM MR. DEDEDE!!!! TAKING IT BACK TO 2009!!! WHAT AN UNGODLY SECOND WIND, PAIN FOR PRIDE DEDEDE IS IN EFFECT, AND IT IS ONE OF THE SCARIEST THINGS YOU WILL EVER SEE! IT’S LIKE HE CAN’T BE STOPPED!!! MR. DEDEDE IS AT A CORNER, WAITING FOR DARYL KINKADE TO PULL HIMSELF BACK UP TO A VERTICAL BASE AFTER TAKING THE RAPTURE…. WE ALL KNOW WHAT HE WANTS JUST BASED OFF OF THE STORY HIS EYES TELL, AND DARYL KINKADE MAY BE RECOVERING JUST TO WALK RIGHT INTO A TRAP! DDD TAKES OFF!!!!!!!! BANG!!!!!! SPEAR!!!!!!!!!!!

Deadprez: NO!!!! DARYL KINKADE CUTS HIM OFF WITH A BICYCLE KICK!!!!!!

Pierre: HOLY HELL HE MISSES IT!!! DDD BASEBALL GLIDES TO HIS BACK GRACEFULLY TO DODGE THE BICYCLE KICK, SPINS ON HIS BACK LIKE A TOP, AND KIPS BACK UP TO HIS FEET FACING KINKADE! JUMPING FOREARM TAKEDOWN TO THE FACE — BUT KINKADE CATCHES HIM WHILE HE’S IN AIR, AND HOLDS HIM UP LOOKING FOR THE BEAUTIFUL LIE!!!!!!!!! GOT IT!!!!!!! NO, NO DDD FINDS HIS FOOTING!!! HE COUNTERS WITH THE GRAND SLAM!!!! GRAND SLAAAAMMM!!!!!!!!!! DARYL KINKADE PLANTED INTO THE MAT WITH A THUNDEROUS ROCK BOTTOM! WHAT A DAZZLING SEQUENCE FROM THE GAWD!!!!!!

Deadprez: DDD is trying to drag Charlie Marr out of the corner, AND NOW MR. DEDEDE IS CLIMBING THAT VERY SAME CORNER SLOWLY BUT EVER SO SURELY! THIS ENTIRE FESTIVAL AUDIENCE SEEMS TO BE PRIVY TO WHAT DDD’S LOOKING FOR! MR. DEDEDE HAS PAINSTAKINGLY FOUND HIS WAY TO THE TOP ROPE, STANDING TALL AND LOOKING OVER HIS SHOULDER AT THE MASSIVE CROWD! THE BIGGEST HE’S EVER PERFORMED IN FROM! AND HE’S GOING FOR THE NORTH STAR!!!!!!! SHOOTING STAR PRESS!!!!!

Pierre: NO!!!! SAM STEELE DRAGS CHARLIE MARR BY HIS LEGS OUT OF THE WAY!!!

Deadprez: DDD MANAGES TO STICK THE LANDING, LANDING ON HIS FEET AND ROLLING THROUGH SAFELY!

AND WHILE STEELE HAS HIM LIFTED MIKE SHAW DELIVERS A MASSIVE ROUNDHOUSE KICK ECHOING THROUGH THE ENTIRE FESTIVAL VENUE!!!!! AND STEELE DROPS HIM WITH THE BRAINBUSTER!!!!! THE “CHASING THE DRAGON” COMBINATION FROM THE DRAGON SLAYERS CONNECTS ON MR. DEDEDE!!!! THE SHERIFF GOES ROLLING BACK TO THE OUTSIDE AFTER AN INCREDIBLE RUN!

Deadprez: Neither of The Dragon Slayers are the legal man, but they’re the only two in this match that are someone in commission! It doesn’t look like they’re done with Mr. DEDEDE either, it’s not enough to chase the dragon, they want to slay the biggest dragon in the history of this wrestling promotion or any other! AND NOW MIKE SHAW IS IN THE RING, WHILE SAM STEELE HAS MR. DEDEDE HOISTED FOR A TOMBSTONE PILEDRIVER AT RINGSIDE!!!!! OH JESUS CHRIST PLEASE DON’T TELL ME PLEASE DON’T TELL ME!!!!!

Pierre: WAIT A SECOND! STEELE GOES DOWN! DDD GOES DOWN! AND LOOK WHO’S TAKING THEM BOTH DOWN……… IT’S JACK RIPLEY!!!!!!!!! JACK RIPLEY FROM BEHIND!!!!

Deadprez: WHAT THE HELL IS HE DOING HERE? WHAT COULD HE POSSIBLY WANT WITH THIS MATCH?

Pierre: JACK RIPLEY, A MAN OBSESSED WITH THE UNIFIED TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIPS, A TITLE HE HAS SHAPED HIS ENTIRE CAREER AROUND! NOW MIKE SHAW COMES CHARGING AFTER JACK RIPLEY, BUT RIPLEY LIGHTS HIM UP WITH A FLURRY OF PUNCHES TO THE FACE BEFORE SENDING MIKE SHAW CRASHING HEAD FIRST INTO THE LED BOARD OF THE RING APRON!!!!! DEAR GOD HIS HEAD HIT THAT BOARD SO HARD IT’S STARTED TO SHORTCIRCUIT!

Deadprez: WHAT THE HELL DOES RIPLEY THINK HE’S DOING?

Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!

( DING! DING! DING! )

( “ULTRAnumb” by Blue Stahli hits, and Cameron Ella Ava sits up with her eyes glazed over and blood running out of her mouth down her jaw. )

Aaron Fitzpatrick: HERE ARE YOUR WINNERS AND STILL THE EAW UNIFIED TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS, MR. DEDEDE AND CAMERON ELLA AVAAAAAAAAA!!!!!

Deadprez: I DON’T UNDERSTAND WHAT HAPPENED, OR WHY IT HAPPENED, BUT DDD AND CAMERON FIND FORTUNE AT THE MERCY OF JACK RIPLEY!

( Jack Ripley immediately exits the ring, and Mr. DEDEDE sits at the bottom of the ramp devoid of any energy and holding his bruised ribs, looking up at Ripley with a scowl on his face. Ripley looks down at DDD with a cold glare, and walks past him. )

Pierre: I can’t stress enough how competitive and exciting this match truly was, but thanks to Jack Ripley I can’t say for sure if we truly find out who the better team was among the three!

Deadprez: At the very least we can assume that Jack Ripley has some intentions of reinserting himself in the tag team division, but other than that I’m just clueless! DDD himself looks the same way, as the referee walks over to him to give him both tag team belts, yet DDD can’t keep his eyes off of Jack Ripley. What message was Ripley trying to send?

( Cameron drags herself to the ring apron, and she sits with DDD as they both watch Ripley walk back up the ramp. A frustrated Cameron shakes her head at the ordeal, and DDD hands her one of his titles before showing off his tag team championship to the crowd. )

(Empire backstage correspondent Cori Simmons is standing with the newly crowned EAW Empire Tag Team Champions Sienna Jade and Kassidy Heart)

Cori Simmons: Hello, I’m here with your new Empire Tag Team Champions – The Jaded Hearts! Just twenty four hours ago, the two of you dethroned the Crowe’s Nest in their first official defense on the grandest stage of them all! How are you two feeling at the moment?

Sienna Jade: (scoffs) Feeling? How WE’RE feeling? Let me tell you something Cori Matthews-

Cori Simmons: Simmons-

Sienna: Matthews. Anyway, Kass and I are on CLOUD NINE at the moment, and yes that pun was dead on intended because when I defeat the Slow Queen Dyke Matsuda once and for all, I will be on CLOUD TEN! And when we run through the entire division and win Empress of Elite next season, we will be on CLOUD ELEVEN! And when Kass gets her hands on the Specialist Championship, we’ll be on CLOUD TWELVE! Imagine one of us as your Empress of Elite, Kass as your Specialist Champion, and ME as your Undisputed Women’s Champion…

(Kassidy and Sienna hold up their titles)

Sienna: While reigning as your EAW Empire Tag Team Champions.

(Sienna grins at the camera)

Sienna: And will soon reign as your EAW UNIFIED Tag Team Champions. Cam? DDD? Take flight, cuz WE’RE GAWDS!

(Sienna walks away. Cori leans towards Kassidy)

Cori: Thoughts?

Kassidy: People take a look at us and assume we’re nothing more than a couple of bikini models. Trust that we’re more than something that’s easy on the eyes. We’re two technical wizards who turned Empire into our personal Hogwarts! We worked your asses off to get this far- and like Sienna just stated, we’re not stopping anytime soon. It’s going to be a #JadedSummer ladies and gentlemen. Because unlike a certain paper champion…

(Kassidy winks)

Kassidy: We don’t stop at cloud nine.

(Kassidy walks away in the same direction as Sienna as Cori looks on)

(Camera fades to the ring)

(DING! DING! DING!)

Stephie Love: The following contest scheduled for one fall… IS FOR THE EAW HARDDDCOREEE CHAAAMMMPIOONNSHHIIIPPP!!

(BRIGHT lights are laid across the stage, lining a horizontally placed red carpet)

(“California Love” by 2Pac feat. Dr Dre hits as Cody Marshall steps onto the stage flanked by a number of photographers and members of the paparazzi. He poses multiple times with the Hardcore Championship. This goes on for a long time… a loooong time and the crowd begins to grow restless. After a few more poses he finally begins to saunter down the ramp with a confidence)

Stephie Love: Approaching the ring first, from Hollywood, California… weighing in at 305 pounds… HE IS THE EAW HARDDDCOREEE CHAMMPION!! CODDDDYYYY MARRRRSSSSHHAAAALLL!!

Stew: HERE IS OUR VERY CONFIDENT HARDCORE CHAMPION, CODY MARSHALL!! Ever since capturing that championship at the Grand Rampage he’s been preaching one thing Bari, to become the greatest Hardcore Champion that EAW has ever seen. And a win here tonight at Pain For Pride, if he can pull it off… that’ll go a long way to making that an actual reality.

Bari: Oooh but it’s not gonna be easy! Standing in his way is Johnny Ventura, he’s been on this stage before, he’s competed for the Answers World Championship at Pain For Pride before! And I mean no disrespect to Cody Marshall but what’s his Pain For Pride resumé like? I wouldn’t be this confident.

(The bright, vivid, and beautiful lights of Pain For Pride XI… abruptly cut off, revealing nothing but total darkness)

Stew: *This is going to be interesting…*

(The scorching roars of the crowds can be heard all over, until loud drumming sounds can be heard filling the arena. The sounds continues to emerge louder and louder, as now the entire crowd have all been succumbed to silence. Each and every bang of the drums slowly gets louder, until everything comes to an absolute stop, and everything is quiet.)

???: *”Caster, oh Caster”*…

(One, gold spotlight flashes on, as it is directed towards the center of the stage. A few seconds later, a young girl cloaked in all white steps onto the light, with an hourglass in her joined palms.)

???: *”Caster, oh Caster”*…

(Another spotlight turns on right next to the little girl, as a young boy now appears on stage, also holding an hourglass in his possession.)

???: *”Caster, oh Caster”*, *”Caster, oh Caster”*…

(Suddenly, all the lights in the arena immediately turn on altogether, as a horde of young boys and girls are shown standing together holding hourglasses. They all seem to be staring straight into the eyes of the reigning EAW Hardcore Champion, Cody Marshall… as he looks on back at them with intrigue. After some moments have passed, the crowd of children separate from each other as they brushes towards the sides, as a girl makes her way further down the ramp with a microphone in her hand.)

Young Girl: Cody, as of this very night, I am proud to tell you that soon, you will finally be…

ALL: CASTED INTO DREAMS.

Young Girl: Now, it doesn’t have to end this way, Cody. It seems that you have vast potential to continue being a star in this company. But, if you allow yourself to be casted away…

ALL: IT WILL BE YOUR OWN DOOMSDAY.

(Several sectors of the arena can be heard applauding, as Cody Marshall readjusts the Hardcore Championship from his waist and waves it up in the air. The young girl seems to be tempered with Cody’s cockiness, as a strong stare can be seen from across her face.)

Young Girl: It is time for you to say your final goodbye. Caster, you may now make your descendance.

(“Clocks” by Phillip Klein blasts through the speakers, as the little girl brushes off to the side to make way. Johnny Ventura finally makes his long-awaited appearance to Pain For Pride XI, as he slowly waltz his way onto the stage, with a bright and vivid smile on his face. He carries forth a giant hourglass of his own in his possession, as it is customized with the initials, “C.D.” on the surface.)

Stephie Love:: And now introducing to the ring at this time, the challenger, weighing in at 235 pounds… the “Caster Of Dreams” himself….. JJJJOOOOHHHHNNNNYYYYYYY….. VVVEEEENNNNTTTUUURRRRAAAAAAAAAA!!

???: *Shhhh….*

(Stephie instantly stops talking, as the group of girls and boys all place their finger above their lips, as they continue to hush the announcer with the softest of tones. The hushing continues to linger, as the crowd suddenly decides to join in as they all hush in accordance with the kids. This goes on for a couple of more moments, until the children dies it down, but they all turn their heads towards Johnny Ventura, who just stands right in the middle of the stage with his golden-glowing Faux Fur robe radiating all over. The little girl with the microphone walks over towards Ventura, as she looks at him with a troubling look.)

Young Girl: Caster?

Ventura: *Yes, my child…*

Young Girl: We just have one question to ask you before you cast this poor soul away…

(Ventura’s contempt face starts to drastically change into a smile, as the entire arena starts to roar with cheers as all the boys and girls all stand together to face Ventura, as he awaits the legendary question…)

Young Girl: *JJJJJJJJUUUUUUUUSSSSSSSTTTTTTTTTT….*

All the children & the crowd: WWWWWHHHHHOOOOOOOOOOO……. IIIIIISSSSSSSSSSSSSS………. NNNNNEEEEEEEEEXXXXXXXXXTTTTTTTTT?!?!?!

(The crowd reacts with nothing more but cheers, until it slowly dies down to complete and utter silence, as the children still continue to stare at Ventura so that he can answer. Ventura looks onto his golden hourglass in his hand and stares at it for some time, before tilting it upside down to place it down onto the ground, as trickles of sand starts to pour down. The girl raises the microphone up to Ventura’s lips…

Ventura: *Cody Marshall is next…*

(The crowd cheers immensely as Ventura points straight at an angered and frustrated Cody Marshall at ringside, as he throws powerful insults towards the general directions of the “Caster of Dreams” himself…)

(The referee holds up the Hardcore Championship and signals for the bell)

(DING! DING! DING!)

Stew: Hardcore Title. Hardcore Rules. We’ve seen the type of punishment Cody Marshall can inflict in this Hardcore setting, and as the Champion you have to think he has the advantage but on the flip side of that you have Johnny Ventura, a man from the era of Extreme… and it’s imperative that should weapons come into play tonight, he utilizes them to his gain to get something over on the Champion! AND MARSHALL IS EAGER TO GET THIS ONE GOING AS HE LUNGES FORWARD TOWARDS VENTURA BUT VENTURA ISN’T GOING TO ALLOW HIM THAT SATISFACTION AS HE SLIDES OUT OF THE RING!!

Bari: Ventura is a master of mind games and Cody Marshall, with how impulsive he is, doesn’t take too well to them. But Marshall is on the prowl, following Ventura out of the ring, as mentioned, no count outs in this one… AND IT LOOKS LIKE WE’RE GONNA HAVE OUR FIRST BIT OF ACTION IN THIS MATCH OUTSIDE OF THE RING AS VENTURA RUSHES TOWARDS MARSHALL, TRYING TO CATCH HIM MID-MOTION OFF GUARD BUT CODY MARSHALL RAISES HIS BOOT AND SENDS IT RIGHT INTO THE JAW OF VENTURA, VENTURA FALLS, SMACKING THE OUTSIDE FLOOR BUT QUICKLY BACK TO HIS FEET!!

Stew: Marshall comes again! He swings his leg up high, looking to connect with a second but this one’s ducked by the challenger! Marshall turns around and is met with a huge uppercut from Ventura! The champion dazed… up against the barricade… AND HERE COMES VENTURA CHARGING TOWARDS HIM… BUT CODY GRABS HIM BY THE THROAT AND TOSSES HIM INTO THE BARRICADE SPINE FIRST!! THE ENTIRE BARRICADE RATTLED… WOW!! AND JOHNNY VENTURA ALREADY IS IN A VERY BAD WAY HERE AS THE CHAMPION GETS HIM BACK TO HIS FEET AND ROLLS HIM IN THE RING!!

Bari: And now Marshall makes his way over to our ringside area here… GRABBING A STEEL CHAIR AND BRINGING IT INTO THE RING WITH HIM!! Ventura in the ring is trying to crawl over to the corner to pull himself up to his feet… COMPLETELY UNAWARE OF WHAT’S AWAITING HIM AS MARSHALL GRIPS THE CHAIR IN HIS HAND!!… VENTURA TURNS AROUND AND MARSHALL TAKES A SWING… BUT VENTURA LEAPS UP WITH A DROPKICK!! THE CHAIR KNOCKED OUT OF MARSHALL’S HANDS AS HE STUMBLES BACKWARDS, VENTURA LEAPS UP WITH A SECOND DROPKICK… THIS ONE CONNECTS AS WELL AND THIS ONE TAKES THE CHAMPION OFF HIS FEET!!

Stew: Ventura quickly scurries over to the steel chair, grabbing it… AND MARSHALL FROM THE CORNER OF HIS EYE SEES IT AND ROLLS OUT OF THE RING!! The champion finds himself in unfamiliar territory here! Usually the hunter but here the hunted… and as Ventura marches towards him… HE NEEDS TO DO SOMETHING… AND QUICK!! HE ROLLS BACK INTO THE RING, VENTURA RE-ENTERS BEHIND HIM BUT MARSHALL GOES ON THE PROWL, HE MAY HAVE SUCKERED HIM INTO THIS ONE!! STOMPS, MANY OF THEM DELIVERED TO THE TOP OF VENTURA’S BACK!! NOW MARSHALL WITH THE STEEL CHAIR IN HAND!!

Bari: THIS MATCH SO FAR HAS REVOLVED AROUND THAT STEEL CHAIR… MARSHALL LIFTS IT HIGH INTO THE AIR AND BRINGS IT DOWN, DIGGING IT INTO THE BACK OF VENTURA, PUTTING ALL HIS WEIGHT ON IT!! ALL 300 POUNDS OF CODY MARSHALL, BEING PASSED INTO THAT STEEL CHAIR THAT’S DIGGING INTO THE SPINE OF THE CHALLENGER!! VENTURA IN OBVIOUS PAIN AS HE LETS OUT A SCREAM!! MARSHALL LIFTS THE CHAIR UP AND CRACKS IT ACROSS THE SPINE OF VENTURA FOR GOOD MEASURE WHO THRASHES IN PAIN, TWISTING AND TURNING ACROSS THE RING!! MUCH TO THE DELIGHT OF THE CHAMPION!!

Stew: Marshall tosses the chair aside and gets Ventura back to his feet… HE THROWS HIM OVER HIS SHOULDERS… LOOKING FOR A POWERSLAM ONTO THAT STEEL CHAIR… AND IT CONNECTS!! VENTURA DRIVEN!! THE COVER!!

ONEEE!!… TWOOO!!… NO!!

Bari: Ventura with the kick out but folks, the Hardcore Champion is putting on a clinic here! Showing exactly why he’s the champion of this division! Marshall gets Ventura up to his feet again… AND THIS TIME GRABBING HIM AND TOSSING HIM INTO THE CORNER!! MARSHALL COMES CHARGING… THROWING HIS ENTIRE BODY AT THE CHALLENGER AND IT CONNECTS!! VENTURA COMES STUMBLING OUT… AND MARSHALL TAKES HIM OVER HIS SHOULDERS AGAIN!! LOOKING FOR A SECOND POWERSLAM ONTO THE CHAIR… BUT LOOK AT VENTURA HERE!! VENTURA IS KICKING HIS LEGS… AND HE’S ABLE TO TURN IT AROUND INTO A DDT!! A DDT!! MARSHALL GOES SKULL FIRST INTO THE CHAIR!!

Stew: THAT’S THE OPENING THAT VENTURA NEEDS TO GET INTO THIS MATCH BUT HE’S NOT TAKING ADVANTAGE!! HE’S DOWN ON THE MAT AS WELL, PULLING HIMSELF INTO THE CORNER!! ALREADY TAKING SUCH A BEATING IN THIS ONE, NEEDING TIME TO RECOVER!! BUT AT LEAST HE’S BOUGHT HIMSELF SOME AS HE PULLS HIMSELF BACK INTO THE CORNER… CODY MARSHALL BEGINNING TO STIR AS VENTURA GETS BACK TO HIS FEET… THE CHAMPION TURNS AROUND AS VENTURA RUSHES FORWARD… BUT A BACK BODY DROP FROM THE CHAMPION SENDS VENTURA FLYING OUT OF THE RING, CRASHING ONTO THE FLOOR!!

Bari: A tough break for Ventura, just as we thought he may have been getting back into this. Now Cody Marshall stepping over the ring ropes, hopping onto the outside and pulling Ventura up to his feet… BUT VENTURA… VENTURA WITH THE TRASH CAN LID WALLOPS IT ACROSS THE SKULL OF CODY MARSHALL, THE BIG MAN DOESN’T GO DOWN HOWEVER… REMAINING ON HIS FEET AS VENTURA TAKES A SECOND SWING… THIS ONE CONNECTING AS WELL!! THIS ONE BRINGS THE CHAMPION DOWN TO A KNEE… VENTURA TAKES A FEW STEPS BACK… COMES CHARGING WITH IT FOR A THIRD TIME… LEAPING IN THE AIR AND CRASH!! THIS TIME THE CHAMPION GOES DOWN… HE’S ALL THE WAY DOWN HERE ON THE OUTSIDE RIGHT IN FRONT OF US, AND A NOTICEABLE CUT HAS FORMED OVER HIS RIGHT EYE!!

Stew: AND NOW VENTURA’S GONNA GO TO WORK ON IT… THROWING HIMSELF OVER THE BODY OF CODY MARSHALL AND UNLEASHING WITH RIGHT HANDS, RIGHT HANDS OVER THAT EYE TO OPEN THE WOUND EVEN MORE… TO MAKE THE BLOOD POUR OUT EVEN MORE PROFUSELY!! VENTURA ISN’T LETTING UP… A FIRE HAS BEEN LIT INSIDE OF THIS MAN AS HE CONTINUES TO BASH HIS FIST INTO THE FACE OF CODY MARSHALL!! THIS IS ANGER, FIVE YEARS OF ANGER AND FRUSTRATION, COMING THROUGH WITH EACH AND EVERY SINGLE PUNCH!! VENTURA HAS MADE IT BACK, ALL THE WAY BACK TO A CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH AT PAIN FOR PRIDE AND HE’S NOT WASTING IT!!

Bari: VENTURA FINALLY LETS UP… STANDING UP AND GETTING OFF THE CHAMPION… BUT VENTURA, YOU’RE RIGHT STEW… THERE’S A NEW FOUND ENERGY INSIDE JOHNNY VENTURA RIGHT NOW… HE LIFTS UP THE RING APRON REVEALING THE GOODIES UNDERNEATH!! HE PULLS OUT THE TRASHCAN THAT THE LID BELONGS TO AND THROWS IT INTO THE RING, FOLLOWED BY A COUPLE OF KENDO STICKS!!… A TABLE!!… ANOTHER STEEL CHAIR!! JOHNNY VENTURA IS EMPTYING HOUSE HERE!! AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST, A BARBED WIRE WRAPPED BASEBALL BAT… WHY IS THAT EVEN UNDER THERE?! JOHNNY VENTURA THROWS IT ALL IN THE RING AND NOW GETS THE HARDCORE CHAMPION TO HIS FEET… AND ROLLING HIM INTO THE RING AS WELL!!

Stew: VENTURA HOPS UP ONTO THE APRON AND HEADS UP TO THE TOP ROPE… CODY MARSHALL IS MAKING IT BACK TO HIS FEET BUT WHO KNOWS WHAT KIND OF CONDITION HE’S IN, HE’S BLEEDING IN A WAY THAT I’VE NEVER SEEN BEFORE… CAN HE EVEN SEE?! VENTURA SETS HIMSELF ON THE TOP ROPE AS MARSHALL TURNS AROUND AND VENTURA LEAPS LOOKING FOR A DIVING CLOTHESLINE… BUT HE’S CAUGHT!! MARSHALL CATCHES VENTURA… HIS HAND WRAPPED AROUND HIS THROAT, HE LIFTS HIM UP… AND A CHOKESLAM RIGHT ONTO THE GARBAGE CAN!! MORE DAMAGE DONE TO THE SPINE OF THE CHALLENGER, BUT CODY MARSHALL ISN’T DONE YET!! HE WIPES SOME BLOOD AWAY FROM HIS EYE AS HE GRABS THE TABLE… KICKING OUT THE LEGS AND SETTING IT UP IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING!!

Bari: MARSHALL LOOKING FOR A BIG MOVE TO END THIS… HE TURNS HIS ATTENTION BACK TO VENTURA… BUT OH VENTURA!! VENTURA HAS THE BARBED WIRE BASEBALL BAT IN HAND… AND HE SWINGS IT INTO THE GUT OF CODY MARSHALL… BRINGING HIM DOWN… AND NOW A SECOND BLOW OVER THE BACK, GOOD LORD THE BAT SNAPPED!! THE BAT SNAPPED IN TWO!! JOHNNY VENTURA HIT CODY MARSHALL SO HARD WITH THAT BAT THAT IT SNAPPED!! THE ACTION OVER THE PAST COUPLE OF MINUTES HAS INTENSIFIED GREATLY! I’M AMAZED THAT VENTURA WAS ABLE TO RECOVER THAT QUICK, BOTH OF THESE MEN ARE RUNNING ON PURE ADRENALINE AND NOTHING ELSE!!

Stew: VENTURA TAKES A FEW STEPS BACK INTO THE CORNER… MARSHALL IS HOLDING HIS MID-SECTION AS HE STRUGGLES TO MAKE IT BACK TO HIS FEET… HERE COMES VENTURA CHARGING… BUT MARSHALL GRABS THE STEEL CHAIR BROUGHT INTO THE RING BY VENTURA AND THROWS IT AT HIM!! IT HITS VENTURA RIGHT IN THE MUSH!! HE GOES FLYING BACK BEFORE HITTING THE CANVAS… CODY MARSHALL COLLAPSES AGAIN TO THE CANVAS… BOTH MEN ARE DOWN AND YOU HAVE TO THINK THAT WHOEVER CAN MAKE IT TO THEIR FEET FIRST IS GOING TO HAVE THE DEFINITE ADVANTAGE, THIS ONE CAN’T LAST MUCH LONGER AT THIS PACE!!

Bari: Marshall crawls over to the table… using it to make it back to his feet as Ventura does the same with the ropes in the corner, no advantage here… back to square one essentially! THEY BOTH MEET IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING… VENTURA LUNGES TO HIS SIDE, TRYING TO GRAB A KENDO STICK BUT CODY MARSHALL THWARTS IT… WRAPPING HIS MAMMOTH SIZED HANDS AROUND THE THROAT OF HIS CHALLENGER!! VENTURA IS STRUGGLING, HE LIFTS HIM UP… CARRYING HIM OVER TO THE TABLE, LOOKING TO DELIVER THE THAT’S A WRAPTURE THROUGH IT!! BUT VENTURA’S FIGHTING!! HE’S FIGHTING… AND… LOOK AT VENTURA!! VENTURA HAS HIS FEET ON THE TABLE!!

Stew: VENTURA HAS HIS FEET ON THE TOP OF THE TABLE AND HE’S USING HIS HANDS TO RAKE THE EYES OF CODY MARSHALL, MARSHALL HAS NO CHOICE BUT TO RELEASE THE CHALLENGER BUT NOW WHAT DO WE DO HERE?! VENTURA FINDS HIMSELF ON TOP OF THE TABLE WITH NOWHERE TO GO, AND ONCE CODY MARSHALL CAN REGAIN HIS COMPOSURE, HE’S GONNA BE ON THE HUNT… BUT NOW VENTURA LEAPS OFF THE TABLE WITH A BLOCKBUSTER!! HE FOLLOWS IT UP WITH A COVER!!

ONEEE!!… TWOOO!!… THE CHAMPION GETS THE SHOULDER UP!!

Bari: VENTURA UNFAZED BY THE KICK OUT… HE GETS BACK TO HIS FEET… CODY MARSHALL BEGINNING TO STIR AS VENTURA GRABS THE KENDO STICK THAT HE TRIED TO EARLIER… CODY MARSHALL IS AT HIS FEET AND VENTURA TAKES A SWING WITH IT… BUT CODY MARSHALL BLOCKS IT… MARSHALL BLOCKS THE ONCOMING ATTACK BY GRABBING ONTO THE KENDO STICK… STICKING IT BACK INTO THE GUT OF JOHNNY VENTURA!!… VENTURA STUMBLES BACKWARDS… THE STRENGTH OF CODY MARSHALL ON FULL DISPLAY THERE… MARSHALL COMES CHARGING AND HE FLATTENS VENTURA WITH A DISCUS HEEL KICK!! AND VENTURA, HIS ADRENALINE MAY BE RUNNING ON FUMES HERE… HE’S STRUGGLING MIGHTILY TO GET BACK TO HIS FEET… THIS MATCH HAS BEEN HIGH OCTANE SINCE THE JUMP… DEFINITELY MORE OF A SPRINT THAN A MARATHON AND THE EFFECTS CAN BE SEEN CLEAR AS DAY!! VENTURA IS UP TO A VERTICAL BASE, THE CHAMPION IS WAITING FOR HIM… AND MARSHALL LIFTS HIM HIGH OVER HIS HEAD… LOOKING FOR THE DIRECTOR’S CUT TO PUT JOHNNY VENTURA AWAY HERE!!

Stew: AND HE WANTS TO PUT HIM THROUGH THE TABLE… THIS DIDN’T WORK OUT SO WELL FOR MARSHALL LAST TIME!!.. AND WE MAY SEE IT AGAIN, JOHNNY’S FIGHTING… TRYING TO SHIFT HIS WEIGHT… TRYING TO REVERSE… TO DO SOMETHING TO GET OUT OF THIS!! BUT CODY DROP– OH!! OH!! VENTURA REVERSED IT INTO THE LAST OF V!! JOHNNY VENTURA REVERSED THE DIRECTOR’S CUT INTO THE LAST OF V!! AND IT PUT CODY MARSHALL THROUGH THE TABLE!! VENTURA THROWS HIS BODY ON TOP OF MARSHALL, LAYING AN ARM ACROSS THE CHEST AS THE REFEREE SLIDES INTO POSITION!!

ONEEE!!… TWOOO!!… THREEE!! WE HAVE A NEW HARDCORE CHAMPION!!

(DING! DING! DING!)

(The little girl with the microphone from earlier reappears back to the stage, as she picks up the hourglass that Johnny Ventura dropped in the middle of the stage. She skips down happily down the ramp, as she climbs up the steps and enters the ring, with Ventura sitting down on the mat right next to a completely unconscious Cody Marshall. She gives the hourglass back to Ventura, but as it clearly shows, all the sand from the hourglass have dropped all the way to the bottom, with much to the delight of Ventura. The referee enters the ring with a shiny object in his hand, as he enquires for Ventura to rise up to his feet. The little girl standing places the microphone in her hand towards her lips once more…)

Young Girl: Ladies and gentlemen…. Your new EAW Hardcore Champion,..

(A burst of roars and cheers can be heard all over the Pain For Pride arena, as the referee goes to hook the EAW Hardcore Championship around the waist of the new Champion, Johnny Ventura, who smiles wide and bright to his delight as he raises both his arms up to the applauding crowd. “Clocks” by Phillip Klein takes over the entire arena, as Ventura continues to celebrate in the ring with a completely devastated Cody Marshall remaining down on the mat. The crowd goes on to cheer “WHO IS NEXT” throughout his celebration, as the camera slowly fades away at the sight of Ventura leaning onto the ropes, as he looks down to take it all in.)

( We get a recap beginning way back from Fighting Spirit: Tokyo, where Chris Elite and Malcolm Jones both left the event the respective winners – with Elite leaving as World Heavyweight Champion, and Jones leaving the No Way Out match as the number 1 contender. Recap then takes us to last month on Voltage, where Chris Elite and Malcolm Jones banter over their prospects of the World Heavyweight Championship match scheduled between them at Pain for Pride. Later that night, Big Mike was found assaulted and laying in a pool of blood and Chris Elite had to be informed of this during the middle of an interview. Amidst speculation of who could be behind the attack, we see Chris and Malcolm talk out their frustrations regarding the assault – which leads to the main event tag team match featuring them teaming up as the Blicky Boyz to take on Rex McAllister and Diamond Cage from Showdown. During this match, footage is shown on the titantron of another member of Chris Elite’s entourage being brutally jumped, which prompts Malcolm Jones himself to bail from the match to help out and leave Elite high and dry unpurposefully. The following week, following a Chris Elite victory over Impact, Malcolm Jones sets up an elaborate ruse by pretending he caught the perpetrator behind Big Mike’s attack, however out of nowhere he and the Joneset all blindside Chris Elite with a vicious assault, revealing MJ to be behind the assault all along. We finally reach last week, where MJ is speaking on why he would turn his back on Chris Elite, when Elite would show up unbeknownst to MJ and begin to provoke him by even going so far as to mentioning MJ’s girlfriend, Astraea. This prompts a one sided beat down from MJ and his goons against Chris Elite, with a flash of MJ standing over Chris Elite asking the fans “IS THIS YOUR CHAMPION?” After Elite is incapacitated yet again, MJ stands over him with his foot on his chest holding up Chris’ World Heavyweight Championship to foreshadow what may be to come. )

( The camera drone pans through the crowd, showing a sea of humanity cheering, waving and holding up signs as we get an exhilarating view of the masses watching the event. We see a shot of fans riding one of the ferris wheels deep into the crowd, with many of them holding up signs to show to the world. We see Rebecca Sawyer step into the middle of the ring. )

Rebecca Sawyer: THE FOLLOWING SINGLES MATCH IS OUR MAIN EVENT OF THE EVENING…. AND IT IS FOR THE WOOOOOOOOOORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP!!!!!!!!

( The near 150,000 in attendance burst into cheers, and the graphic for the World Heavyweight Championship appears on the screen. )

(Camera pans to the parking lot area outside of the Las Vegas Motor Speedway Stadium, a faint noise gets gradually louder as a helicopter emerges from the sky above, lowering itself, landing onto the parking lot. It sits still as nobody is coming out until suddenly the helicopter pilot walks out and opens the door.)

(An all gold Christian Louboutin shoe can be seen stepping out first. The person continues getting out of it is Malcolm Jones, accompanied by Astraea Jordan. Both have confident smirks on their faces.)

(Suddenly, a huge SUV pulls up in front of them, the truck is fully covered in red paisley print resembling a red bandana. https://i.imgur.com/ntLeqfY.jpg)

(The driver hops out and opens the back door as Malcolm and Astraea both enter the truck. The driver gets back in the truck and begins driving as the camera follows it through the parking lot.)

(The camera transitions back inside the packed stadium with the rabid fans where the lights are suddenly dimmed and it focuses on the entrance ramp.)

(A voice can be heard talking through the speakers, after a while it is distinguishable that it is audio of New York rapper Nas, rapping an acapella to a classic verse)

FAKE THUG, NO LOVE, YOU GET THE SLUG CB4 GUSTO
YOUR LUCK LOW, I DIDN’T KNOW ‘TIL I WAS DRUNK THOUGH
YOU FREAK NIGGAS PLAYED OUT, GET FUCKED AND ATE OUT
PROSTITUTE TURNED BITCH, I GOT THE GAUGE OUT
NINETY-SIX WAYS I MADE OUT, MONTANA WAY
THE GOOD-F-E-L-L-A, VERBAL AK SPRAY
DIPPED ATTACHE, JUMP OUT THE RANGE, EMPTY OUT THE ASHTRAY
A GLASS OF ‘ZE, MAKE A MAN CASSIUS CLAY
RED DOT PLOTS, MURDER SCHEMES, THIRTY-TWO SHOTGUNS
REGULATE WITH MY DUNNS
SEVENTEEN ROCKS GLEAM FROM ONE RING
THEY LET ME LET Y’ALL NIGGAS KNOW ONE THING
THERE’S ONE LIFE, ONE LOVE, SO THERE CAN ONLY BE ONE KING

……

(Light cheers can be heard as suddenly the rapping picks back up)

THAT CLOWN NIGGA’S THROUGH, BLAZIN’ AT HIS CREW DAILY
THE BRIDGE TOUCHED ME UP SEVERELY, HEAR ME?
SO WHEN I RHYME IT’S SINCERELY YOURS
BE LIGHTIN’ L’S, SIPPIN’ COORS ON ALL FLOORS IN PROJECT HALLS
CONTEMPLATIN’ WAR NIGGAS I WAS COOL WITH BEFORE
WE USED TO SCORE TOGETHER, UPTOWN COPPIN’ THE RAW
BUT A THUG CHANGES AND LOVE CHANGES
AND BEST FRIENDS BECOME STRANGERS

(Suddenly, a huge spotlight shines through the dark stadium and focuses on the entrance ramp, suddenly loud honking can be heard as “Mad Man” by A$AP Ferg blasts across the stadium and a huge SUV slowly comes driving up the ramp as it stops in the middle. You can see Malcolm Jones pop out through the sunroof as the sight of him is met with loud boos. Malcolm crawls out of the truck through the sunroof, as he stands on top of the truck for a moment to pose and soak in the moment.)

(Malcolm Jones is wearing a black, red, and gold vest specially made by fashion designer Mason Margiela. It reads “Margiela Madman” on the front and “Get The Strap” on the back. His trunks are the same color. He has on a pair of Fendi ray ban sunglasses.)

Kawajai: And there he is, this is a man entering his first ever Pain for Pride in a headlining match for a world championship. Soaking in the moment with the poise of a 10 year vet! I must say, he is looking as confident as ever!

(Malcolm hops down from the top of the truck and opens the passenger side door, as Astraea Jordan also comes out of the car and she’s met with a huge reaction of cheers. Malcolm and Astraea walk down the ramp hand in hand.)

Nick Angel: Confident is an understatement Kawajai but boy am I excited for this matchup! Two men born and bred by New York City are duking it out to not only determine who the World Heavyweight Champion of EAW will be, but who the champion of their CITY will be! Best friends turned bitter enemies and it’s all thanks to an attack on Big Mike. Malcolm is accompanied by his girlfriend, the beautiful Astraea Jordan who will be in action later on in this event and it’s a very strong chance that the both of them end up as world champions at the same time in season 12! Talk about a power couple!

Nick Angel: Indeed Nick, as unforgivable as Malcolm’s acts over the past month have been, he’s done what he felt he’s needed to do in order to send a statement to Chris, now we’ll see if it was all worth it in the end.

Kawajai: This is Harlem vs Brooklyn! The Knicks vs The Nets! Dave East vs Tekashi69! Cam’ron vs Jay Z! This match is symbolic on so many levels I can’t help but feel a timberland boot suddenly appearing on my foot with how New York this is!

Nick Angel: Uhhh… whatever that means?

(Malcolm and Astraea stop ahead of the ring as Malcolm kisses Astraea goodbye, he hands off his diamond flooded cuban link chains as he places them around her neck and she turns around to make her way to the back. Suddenly, his Joneset crew make their way up through the curtains as she leaves and up the ramp to a huge chorus of boos. )

(The lights begin to dim down. )

( The titantron starts to play a video clip of all the trials and tribulations, losses, defeats, downfalls and failures that Chris Elite has endured from his days as “Suicide Kid” in 2009 to now. )

Meek Mill voiceover: Life is all about wins and losses.

( The losses transition to triumphant moments and victories, featuring his win over Ryan Adams at Road to Redemption, his World Heavyweight Championship win at Brooklyn Heights, his title retention at Fighting Spirit: Tokyo and the latest clip being of last Voltage showing him holding up the World Heavyweight Championship over Malcolm Jones. )

( The video stops and the beginning of the song “Odee” by A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie starts up )

“44 Bulldog hit a bozo melon split a bozo bean everybody saying what they gon do, but they just talking and don’t mean it”

(The crowd begins to lose it as A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie makes his way on stage continuing the song on the middle of the ramp)

“Tried to run down with the deuce, deuce that’s a no, no get a forty. Yeah I know I’m probably too much sometimes I just be odeeing”

(An engine is then heard revving up and the crowd gets even louder as Chris Elite comes onto a ramp from OUT OF NOWHERE on a black and Gold ATV popping a wheelie. )

( Chris Elite pauses for a second to let the energy from the crowd sink in he has on a black and gold attire, with his World Heavyweight Championship being worn around his neck, before heading to the ramp does donuts around the performing A Boogie. He finally makes his way down the ramp in the ATV circling the ring before finally getting off and trash talking into the camera. )

Chris Elite: IT’S TIME BABY! I’VE FOUGHT MY WHOLE CAREER FOR THIS MOMENT AND IT’S HERE! THAT BOY MALC THINK HE’S GOING TO RUIN IT? IMAGINE THAT. :mjlol:

(Chris Elite finally gets in the ring taunting raising his World Heavyweight Championship to each side of the crowd and then holding it in front of Malcolm. MJ shoves the title out of his face and is advised by the referee to step away from him. “Odee” finally dies down and Chris Elite is joined by his own Elite Entourage, who all walk down to the ring and step into his corner to support him. )

( Both Malcolm Jones and Chris Elite are in their respective corners, warming up and Chris Elite is getting pre-match advice from his entourage, and Malcolm Jones is also receiving advice as well as motivation from the Joneset. )

( DING! DING! DING! )

Rebecca Sawyer: The following is the HEADLINE of Pain for Pride Festival, Day 2, and it is for the EAW WOOOOOOORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIOOOONSHIPPPP!!!!!!!!!!!

Introducing in the left corner, he is THE CHALLENGER; accompanied by The Joneset, hailing from HARLEM, NEW YORK, standing in at 6 foot 1 and weighing in tonight at 230 POUNDS… “The Margiela Madman”, “The Wave”, MALCOOOOOOOOOLLLMMMMM JOOOOOOOOOOOOONESSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!

( Malcolm Jones beats his chest and raises both fists to the audience, and he receives thunderous boo birds from the sea of people. )

Rebecca Sawyer: His opponent! He is accompanied by the Elite Entourage, and he hails from BROOKLYN, NEW YORK; he weighs in tonight at 210 and 1/2 POUNDS, AND HE IS THE REIGNING!!!!!!!! DEFENDING!!!!! HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION OF THE WOOOOOOORLLDDDDD…. “GAWD GIVEN GREATNESS”, CHRRRRRIIIIIIIIISSSSSSSSSSS EEEEEELLLIIIIIIIIIIIITEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!

( The audience gives an enormous response as Chris Elite holds up the World Heavyweight Championship to the audience. )

Kawajai: And for those with the Oculus Rift or the Playstation VR system, be sure to download the EAW VR App where those with the EAW Network will be able to watch this contest as well as the remainder of Pain for Pride Festival in VIRTUAL REALITY for the first time ever! Immerse yourself further into this incredible experience, become a part of this god-tier atmosphere!

Nick Angel: I legitimately have goosebumps Kawa, and this thing hasn’t even gotten started yet!

Kawajai: MALCOLM JONES FROM OUT OF NOWHERE BLINDSIDES CHRIS ELITE WITH A SHOT FROM BEHIND!!!!!!

( The crowd is set off to an enormous sea of boos. Malcolm Jones immediately starts stomping away at Chris Elite, and the referee uses all of his strength to pull Malcolm Jones off of Elite. )

Nick Angel: AND THE ELITE ENTOURAGE CHARGES IN!!!! BUT HERE COMES THE JONESET!!! THINGS ARE ABOUT TO DETONATE BEFORE THE BELL CAN EVEN RING, THE REFEREE JUMPS IN BETWEEN TWO GROUPS OF MEN WHO ARE READY TO GO TO WAR RIGHT HERE AND RIGHT NOW!

Kawajai: The referee is holding onto this thing by a string! Chris Elite was utterly blindsided with a cheap shot to the back of the head, and Malcolm Jones looks proud of himself for the liberties that he’s taken!

Nick Angel: I got a chance to have a word with Eddy Hartle, the official handling this match tonight, and he already stated he will not HESITATE to throw this match out in the event of any foul play! This official is not here to play games, this match is meant to determine who is the better athlete, and MJ’s lucky he didn’t just forfeit this entire title fight for himself with that cheap move!

( Chris Elite is using the corner to recover, and Malcolm Jones is in the ring shuffling his feet and changing fighting stances, begging Chris Elite to come at him. )

( DING! DING! DING! )

Kawajai: THIS WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH IS UNDERWAY AND HERE COMES CHRIS ELITE CHARGING RIGHT AT MALCOLM JONES TO TAKE HIM INTO THE CORNER OF THE RING! The World Heavyweight Champion unloads with a ballistic combination of rights and lefts to the body!!! Malcolm Jones doing everything he can to protect himself as Elite is unloading with pent up aggression, and those blows are enough to leave welts on the challenger already in the opening seconds of this contest! Swipe from MJ, Elite ducks under it and continues the body shuts and an uppercut to the jaw! Elite rolls backwards and away from MJ to create separation before charging at the cornered MJ and delivering a jumping forearm to the face!!!!!! Elite takes MJ to the ground with a snapmare before rebounding off the nearby ropes and delivering a WILD PENALTY KICK TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD!!!!! NO MJ manages to contort his body and avoid the blow at the last second, he’s up to a knee and Elite redirects his momentum into a LARIAT! MJ handsprings under the oncoming arm, he’s right back up! Elite charges at him! MJ intercepts him with a European uppercut! He redirects Chris Elite with the Irish whip into a corner, and FOLLOWS RIGHT UP WITH THE RUNNING KNEE TO THE FACE TO FINISH THE WATER WHIP!!! NO CHRIS ELITE USES THE CORNER HOWEVER TO SPRING HIS BODY OVER MALCOLM JONES AND LAND BEHIND HIM! O’CONNOR ROLL INTO A GERMAN SUPLEX BY ELITE!!!! BUT MJ SPINS BEHIND CHRIS ELITE BEFORE ELITE CAN DELIVER THE GERMAN – AND MALCOLM JONES TOSSES CHRIS ELITE THROUGH THE RING ROPES, AND OUT OF THE RING FROM BEHIND!

( Malcolm Jones dusts his hands off while Chris Elite is at ringside looking up at his opponent with a frustrated expression on his face. The Elite Entourage goes over to council the champion at ringside. )

Nick Angel: Malcolm Jones has already made several successful attempts at getting into the head of our World Heavyweight Champion, and if you’re Chris Elite’s entourage it is imperative that the champion is aware of this! Malcolm Jones is again taunting Chris Elite, at just 26 years old Malcolm Jones may not even be in his athletic prime yet, however he has reached a level very few men in the history of this sport will ever reach by making it to the main event of Pain for Pride!

Kawajai: And he didn’t stumble his way to the main event either Nick, this man qualified for this epic moment by outlasting five other men in the hellacious No Way Out match — one of those men being his mentor who helped bring him to this dance, Mr. DEDEDE! Now Malcolm Jones is ready to prove that he belongs here, as Chris Elite steps back in the ring and both of these two prize fighters are forced to go about this match in a cerebral manner lest they make any foolish mistakes and cost themselves such a major moment of their professional careers. Elite and MJ get into a rough collar & elbow tie up, with the two of them really going at it like a couple of bulls!

Nick Angel: This is as personal as it is professional Kawa! There’s real hatred between the two, but for both of them – especially Malcolm Jones – this is about being number 1 at the end of the day! MJ has Elite in a snug and tight headlock, and Elite takes a bit of time to pry his head out of MJ’s grasp before MJ starts to batter a few punches over the shoulder blades! Elite twists behind him looking for a CRUCIFIX BACKSLIDE PIN! Malcolm holding his own! He’s refusing to be taken over, this is a struggle, and MJ POWERS ELITE OVER INSTEAD! HE OUT MUSCLED CHRIS ELITE INTO A BACKSLIDE OF HIS OWN! But Elite backflips and lands on his feet rather than get taken down onto his shoulders! Now MJ takes advantage of an opening with a well placed knee to the gut, followed by a clubbing blow to the back of the neck! And several more clubbing blows to the back, specifically in that kidneys area! NOW MJ HAS CHRIS ELITE IN PRIME POSITION FOR THE COCAINA CLUTCH!!!!!!!! COQUINA CLUTCH FROM BEHIND JUST MIGHT DO THE CHAMPION IN EARLY!!!!!!! But Chris Elite grabs ahold of both wrists, and he powers up to his feet, backpedaling into the ropes before momentum before slinging MJ right off of him! Nice show of power from the world champion, MJ is sent rolling away, but he rushes back up before sprinting RIGHT INTO A BEAUUUUTIFUL DROPKICK FROM ELITE!!! THE CROWD REACTS STRICTLY OFF OF THE SOUND OF THAT PERFECTLY EXECUTED SHOT! AND SOMEHOW MJ IS ALREADY RISING BACK UP TO HIS FEET! MJ just took those nasty boots to the mouth in stride, and Chris Elite takes MJ into the corner to bash his face into the turnbuckle, turn him around and delivers two forearms! European uppercut! A shoot kick! The leg is caught by MJ! AND LOOK AT THAT, ELITE WITH A TWISTING BODY-SCISSORS WHEELBARROW PIN OUT OF THE CORNER!

Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWWWWWWW-

Kawajai: MJ kicks out! The two recover, but Elite baseball slides between MJ’s legs for the roll up! Jones manages to center his own gravity, and hooks the legs of grounded Elite as well as kneels on his chest for a pin of his own!

Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWWWWWWWW-

Kawajai: Elite kicks out! Elite attempts to rush back up to a knee, but Malcolm Jones immediately sprawls over the back of his opponent and disorients him with a gator roll. MJ gator rolls Elite to the right, delivers a knee lift right into the shoulder blade! He’s got some choice words for Elite now as that front facelock is applied, and Malcolm gator rolls Elite in a different direction this time bringing himself and his opponent up to their feet and attempting a VERTICAL SUPLEX! CHRIS ELITE LANDS ON HIS FEET FROM BEHIND, AND RUSHES TO THE ROPES IN FRONT OF HIM LOOKING FOR A SPRINGBOARD MOONSAULT!!!!! BUT BEFORE ELITE CAN SPRING OFF, MALCOLM JONES POUNCES ONTO HIM FROM BEHIND WITH SUPERHUMAN REFLEXES AND TAKES HIM WITH THE MAT WITH A COCAINA CLUTCH!!!! WHAT A COUNTER!!! MJ SAYING ‘NOT SO FAST’, MAKING CHRIS ELITE PAY FOR GOING TO THE HIGH FLYING WELL TOO EARLY!!! CHRIS ELITE IS FLAILING ALL OF HIS LIMBS DESPERATELY, DESPERATELY LOOKING FOR A WAY OUT!!!!

Nick Angel: WELL LOOK AT THIS! ELITE MAY HAVE FOUND IT!!!! ELITE MANAGES TO BEND HIS LEGS AND THEREFORE HIS BODY BACKWARDS, STACKING MALCOLM JONES ONTO HIS SHOULDERS! THE REFEREE SLIDES DOWN FOR THE PIN!

Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! THRRRRRRRRRRRR-

Kawajai: MJ IS FORCED TO RELEASE THE CLUTCH!!! That was a brilliant escape from Chris Elite, and Malcolm Jones drags himself away looking a little bit rattled by how close he came to losing it all! Chris Elite recovers on his own terms at the center of the ring while MJ pulls himself up using the ropes… and MJ beats a doubled over Chris Elite to the punch by delivering a SHOTGUN DROPKICK TO THE SIDE OF THE HEAD! TWIRLING EVASION BY ELITE TO DODGE THE DROPKICK! MJ LANDS FLAT ON HIS BACK, AND ELITE GOES FOR A STANDING MOONSAULT! MJ WITH A BACKWARDS-ROLL EVASION UP TO HIS FEET! CHRIS ELITE HITS THE MAT HARD AND TURNS OVER HOLDING HIS MIDSECTION! STANDING SHOOTING STAR PRESS FROM MALCOLM JONES!!!!! AND A HOOK OF BOTH LEGS IMMEDIATELY AFTER IT!

Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

Nick Angel: Chris Elite kicks out right at two! A frustrated Malcolm Jones now opts to mount over Chris Elite and deliver a series of closed handed rights to the head of the champion, with Elite keeping his arms up trying to protect himself, and the referee admonishing MJ for the use of closed fists in succession. Malcolm Jones relents much to the behest of the referee, and he slowly scrapes Chris Elite off of the mat while trash talking in his face, just to take Elite over to a corner to bash his face right into it and deliver A SUPER STIFF ELBOW SHOT STRAIGHT INTO THE SPINE! That forces a pain-filled yell out of the World Heavyweight Champion, and MJ turns Chris Elite around before hitting AN EVEN LOUDER, STIFF KNIFE EDGE CHOP TO THE CHEST! MJ attempts an Irish whip out of the corner, but Elite stops him half way with a back elbow to the side of the jaw! Now Elite with a right hand! A European uppercut following that! And MJ fires back with a spin kick to the midsection, before taking Chris back into the corner and GOING TO TOWN ON HIM WITH A FLURRY OF FURIOUS STOMPS TO THE MIDSECTION! THE REFEREE HAS TO COUNT JUST TO FORCE MJ TO RELENT WITH THOSE NASTY BOOTS TO THE RIBS!

Ref: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR!

Kawajai: MJ backs away, but then he goes back to Chris Elite to press the boot RIGHT INTO THE NOSE of the World Heavyweight Champion, even using the ropes to help him firmly apply more pressure! The referee talking to MJ, telling him he wants Chris Elite out of the corner, and MJ sarcastically replies “as you wish” to the official before grabbing Elite up by the head and delivering a wicked elbow shot to the temple! Elite is staggering along the ropes, and Malcolm runs the ropes clear across from his opponent before attempting a big time lariat to the outside! BUT CHRIS ELITE DIPS HIS SHOULDER DOWN AND SENDS MJ FLYING UP!!!! OH MY GOD!!!! MALCOLM JONES WAS SENT NEARLY 8 TO 10 FEET IN THE AIR, AND FALLS SPLAT ONTO THE RINGSIDE FLOOR WITH AN ENORMOUS THUD!!! MALCOLM JONES IS HOLDING HIS SHOULDER IN A LOT OF PAIN, AND THE JONESET COME TO HIS AID LOOKING CONCERNED FOR THEIR PRIZE FIGHTER!

Nick Angel: THAT WAS A MORE FRIGHTENING FLIGHT THAN IT WAS A FALL! I THOUGHT MJ WAS GOING TO FLY OUT OF THE DAMN PARK HE WAS SENT UP SO HIGH! AND HE COMES CRASHING DOWN BRUTALLY AT RINGSIDE!

( Malcolm Jones holds his left shoulder socket and is cursing up a storm, as we get a reply of him being sent abnormally high into the air and crashing down on the ringside floor on his shoulder. )

Chris Elite (off-mic): OUT OF THE WAY BOZOS

Nick Angel: Chris Elite comes right after Malcolm Jones and parts the Joneset who are crowded around MJ with his mere presence! AND ELITE TOSSES MALCOLM JONES OVER THE DYNASTY COMMENTARY TABLE, SENDING HIM CRASHING AND TUMBLING RIGHT ON THAT PRESUMABLY HURT SHOULDER! MJ stumbles onto his feet favoring the shoulder, and Elite comes right after MJ yet again and takes him by the nape of the neck … running across ringside …. AND SENDING MALCOLM JONES CRASHING INTO THE BARRICADE INJURED SHOULDER FIRST WITH EVERYTHING THAT HE HAS!!! AND THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION NOW BEATING HIS CHEST AFTER SHOWING OFF THAT INCREDIBLE STRENGTH HE HAS WITHIN!

Ref: Let’s get this thing back in the ring come on! 1! 2!

Kawajai: Chris Elite is deceptively powerful, and Malcolm Jones just felt that power first hand Nick! Now Elite is bringing MJ up to a standing base – BUT MJ RAKES THE EYES OF ELITE, DRAWING THE IRE OF THE CROWD!! Now Malcolm Jones follows up with some right fist shots into the midsection! Now he drives Chris Elite SPINE FIRST into the ring apron before backing away himself and collapsing down to a seated base laying against the barricade. Chris Elite has got some soreness in the spine as a result of previously incurred damage, and being driven into the sharpest part of the ring certainly does him no favors. Elite goes right back after MJ — BUT MALCOLM JONES DELIVERS A SUPERKICK FROM OUT OF NOWHERE!!! THAT SENDS CHRIS ELITE STUMBLING BACK TOWARDS THE APRON, AND MALCOLM COMES AFTER HIM — WHAT?!?! CHRIS ELITE SHOOTS HIS BODY UNDER THE BOTTOM ROPE FOR A 619-LIKE TRANSITION INTO A REVERSE FRANKENSTEINER FROM THE APRON, DRILLING MALCOLM JONES!!!!!!!! THE BACK OF MJ’S HEAD PLANTED ONTO THE RINGSIDE FLOOR!!!! MJ MAY HAVE BEEN BROKEN IN HALF! HOW IN THE WORLD DID HE DO THAT????

Nick Angel: Momentum has carried Chris Elite to amazing heights in the past, and it’s almost as though the momentum mixed with adrenaline caused him to act on instinct! Nevertheless both men are down, and the referee is forced to restart his count after that crafty break from Elite!

( Malcolm Jones and Chris Elite sluggishly pull themselves up from the ringside floor with the Joneset willing MJ on from one side, and the Elite Entourage willing Chris Elite on from the other. )

Ref: 1! 2! 3! 4! 5! 6!

Kawajai: Chris Elite rolls himself into the ring first! Malcolm Jones is still in need of assistance from the ring apron, he’s got an arm slung over the apron and is trying desperately to break the referee’s ten count! The ref is at 8 now, and look at this! Chris Elite actually HELPS Malcolm Jones back into the ring by yanking him in by the wrist! Elite goes even further by pulling him up to his feet, and CLOCKING HIM WITH A REVERSE ROUNDHOUSE TO THE FACE!!!! THAT KNOCKS MJ FOR A LOOP, AND ELITE FROM BEHIND HITS A GERMAN SUPLEX!!!!!!!!! DELIVERS IT, AND HE ROLLS THROUGH, ROLLING IT INTO A ONE WINGED ANGEL!!!!!!!!!! THE FINISHING MOVE, LONG!!!!!!!!! KISS!!!!!! GOODNI- NO MJ MJ IS BATTING PUNCHES OVER THE HEAD OF ELITE! ELITE STUMBLES TOWARDS THE ROPES, AND MJ HAS A HOLD OF THE ROPES! JUST AS ELITE SEEMED TO HAVE HAD HIM, MALCOLM JONES CLUTCHES THE TOP ROPE, AND HE DRAGS HIMSELF BACK OUT OF THE RING LANDING ON THE OPPOSITE SIDE OF THE RING FLOOR FROM WHERE HE JUST RECOVERED! Malcolm Jones escapes surefire defeat, but Chris Elite is not going to allow MJ that easy of a reprieve just yet! Malcolm Jones rises, and CHRIS ELITE CLUTCHES THE MIDDLE ROPE, AND DELIVERS A MIDDLE ROPE ASSISTED CANNONBALL DROPKICK STRAIGHT INTO THE FACE OF MALCOLM JONES! MJ IS SENT FLYING OVER THE BARRICADE, LANDING ON THE LAP OF SOME OF THESE FRONT ROW FANS!

Nick Angel: Folks just imagine being kicked in the mouth SO HARD that it literally sends you flying five to six feet on impact! My goodness! MJ just landed on the lap of several young women, spilling popcorn all over one of them, and one of the girls are asking him to “have her babies”. Somehow however MJ is already pulling himself up and attempting to drag himself back over the barricade! Chris Elite is hyping up the rest of the crowd and now he hops onto the apron, waiting for Malcolm Jones to be in position where he’s leaned over the barricade. NO WAY!! NO GODDAMN WAY!!!!!!! SPRINGBOARD MOONSAULT INTO A BIONIC STOMP!!!!!!!!! RIGHT INTO THE BACK OF THE HEAD OF MALCOLM JONES!!!!!!

Kawajai: WHAT AN INCREDIBLE INNOVATIVE MOVE FROM CHRIS ELITE! JUST AS MALCOLM JONES WAS LEANED OVER THE BARRICADE, HE GETS HIT WITH THAT INSANE MOONSAULT DOUBLE FOOT STOMP!!!

( Malcolm Jones, after landing awkwardly on his shoulder, starts yelling causing some members of the Joneset to argue with the referee about MJ’s health. )

Kawajai: I’M ALMOST AMAZED MJ IS EVEN CONSCIOUS ENOUGH TO FEEL ANYMORE PAIN, THAT COULD HAVE CONCUSSED HIM, HELL IT COULD HAVE SNAPPED HIS NECK! AND CHRIS ELITE SENDS MJ BACK INTO THE RING AND FOLLOWS HIM UP WITH A COVER!

Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

Nick Angel: AND SOMEHOW, SOMEWAY, MALCOLM JONES IS STILL SHOWING SOME FIGHT! Malcolm Jones’ left shoulder seemed to have hit the ringside floor hard, and it’s taken some damage thus far in this match; however what MJ is showing is that whether his shoulder is injured or not he fully intends on leaving this venue with the World Heavyweight Title hanging over it! Malcolm Jones sits up holding his arm no doubt in agony, and Chris Elite follows up by snatching that left arm with the damaged shoulder and APPLIES AN ARMBAR TORQUE! HE’S WRENCHING THAT ARM, FORCING SCREAMS OF PAIN OUT OF THE CHALLENGER!!!!

Nick Angel: YIKES! CHRIS ELITE WITH A NASTY STOMP TO THE BICEP! AND MJ BELTS OUT CRIES OF PAIN! Malcolm Jones rolls over holding that bicep, and Chris Elite appears to have a bullseye set directly on MJ’s potentially dislocated shoulder! MJ sitting up now while Chris Elite has created enough space! AND ELITE TAKES OFF!!!!! WHO SHOT YA!!!!!!!! LISTEN TO THAT HORRIFIC SOUND! PENALTY KICK STRAIGHT TO THAT DAMAGED ARM, NEARLY POPPING THE SHOULDER OUT OF PLACE!!!! MJ GOES ROLLING OUT OF THE RING, AND OH MY GOD MJ’S SHOULDER HANGS UNNATURALLY, THAT COULD VERY WELL BE THE END OF THIS MATCH! CHRIS ELITE MAY HAVE DESTROYED THAT MAN’S SHOULDER!! Now Chris Elite attempts to drag Malcolm Jones back into the ring, BUT MJ AGAIN DRIVES HIS FINGERS INTO THE EYE SOCKETS OF THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION! Chris Elite retreats holding his eyes, he might have actually gotten one of his eyes sliced open with MJ’s nails!!! Meanwhile Malcolm Jones is pacing back and forth at ringside like a madman while winding up his left arm! He can’t even believe the pain he’s in, but it’s almost like the pain has filled him with uncontrollable rage! MJ starts slapping the LED ringpost with hands! Malcolm Jones is literally psyching himself back into this match!

Kawajai: MJ jumps onto the apron and springs over the ropes into the ring! MJ charges at Elite, but Elite ducks underneath MJ causing MJ to jump over him! Malcolm rebounds off the ropes — AND LOOK AT THAT!!!! CHRIS ELITE WITH A BACKWARDS, YES, BACKWARDS ROLLING THUNDER INTO A JUMPING BACKFLIP SATELLITE DDT!!!!!!!!! NO NO NO!!!! MALCOLM JONES COUNTERS THE SATELLITE DDT INTO THE OVER THE KNEE BACKBREAKER!!! NOW MJ TAKES ELITE INTO THE CORNER, AND DELIVERS A FRONT FACELOCK INTO THE ROLLING CUTTER INTO THE MIDDLE TURNBUCKLE! DRILLING CHRIS ELITE FACE FIRST INTO THE MIDDLE TURNBUCKLE! MJ DRAGS ELITE OUT OF THE CORNER WITH THE GOOD ARM AND HOOKS A LEG!

Ref: OOOOOOOOOONEEE!!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

Nick Angel: CHRIS ELITE WITH THE KICK OUT! Malcolm Jones isn’t letting that screw with him mentally, instead he’s dragging Chris Elite up from the mat, and he delivers a kick to the midsection! Irish whip into the turnbuckle, and FINISHES OFF WITH THE WATER WHIP!!! RUNNING KNEE TO FACE OF A CORNERED CHRIS ELITE! MJ GUIDES ELITE OUT OF THE CORNER NOW AND HOOKS HIM NICELY, AND MJ DELIVERS THE MOSS-COVERED THREE-HANDLED FAMILY GRADUNZA!!!! OR IN NON WRESTLING NERD TERMINOLOGY, THE SWINGING FISHERMANS NECKBREAKER! ANOTHER PIN!

Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

Kawajai: Kick out again by Elite! Malcolm Jones is literally having to punch the feeling back into that left arm, but you can just tell he is still very much into this contest mentally! MJ goes over to Chris Elite before jaw jacking him with a few stiff forearm shots to the jaw with the good arm! Chris Elite tries to fight back with some kicks from the ground which land on the torso, but MJ fires back with a BIG kick to the temple! Malcolm Jones is now adding insult to injury, placing the foot on his neck and talking loads of trash while the referee admonishes MJ for the unsportsmanlike gesture. MJ grabs Elite by the ankles now and drags him near a turnbuckle corner… and HE SENDS ELITE UP AND OVER WITH A SLINGSHOT!!! CHRIS ELITE IS SENT UP INTO THE AIR, AND HE SMACKS FACE FIRST INTO THE RINGPOST WITH A LOUD THUD! Malcolm Jones follows up, refusing to let a spaghetti legged Chris Elite fall to the mat, and he grabs Chris by the tights and hooks him only to hoist him up to a seated position on the top turnbuckle! What could Malcolm Jones be looking for?

Kawajai: MJ appears to have a few words for Chris while he’s seated up there in the high rent district. OH!!!!! THE COLLEGIATE BASKETBALL STAR ATHLETE MALCOLM JONES CLEARS AN INCREDIBLE HEIGHT IN ONE BOUND, AND HITS A PICTURE PERFECT DROPKICK CONNECTING BOTH BOOTS TOO THE BACK OF THE NECK OF CHRIS ELITE!!! THAT SENDS CHRIS ELITE TUMBLING FORWARD FROM THE TOP ROPE DOWN TO THE RINGSIDE FLOOR!

Nick Angel: WAIT WAIT WAIT! HANG ON A SECOND! I CAN’T BELIEVE MY FREAKING EYES RIGHT NOW! ARE YOU SERIOUS?!??! CHRIS ELITE DOESN’T HIT THE RINGSIDE FLOOR!

Kawajai: CHRIS ELITE IS LITERALLY CLINGING TO THE LED RINGPOST, CATCHING HIMSELF BEFORE HE COULD HIT THE GROUND!!!!!! ARE YOU KIDDING ME???? CHRIS ELITE IS LITERALLY SCALING THAT LED RINGPOST LIKE FREAKING SPIDERMAN, AND MALCOLM JONES HAS NO CLUE WHAT’S GOING ON! HE HAS HIS BACK TURNED TO CHRIS ELITE, AND ELITE MAKES IT BACK UP TO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE WITH A LOCK ON HIS OPPONENT! 44 BULLDOG!!!! SHOTGUN DROPKICK, SENDING MALCOLM JONES FLYING ACROSS THE RING AND CRASHING INTO THE CORNER!!!!! Chris Elite certainly isn’t out of the woods yet, but you’ve got to commend that unbelievable comeback! Malcolm Jones is holding his back, and Elite himself has a sore back due to the intentional damage inflicted by his opponent. Now Elite is climbing up the turnbuckle Malcolm Jones just crashed into, and MJ seems to have no idea what’s about to hit him! ELITE WITH THE 630 SENTON!!!!!! BUT MJ ROLLS OVER!!!!

Nick Angel: NO!!! NO!!! MJ DOESN’T ESCAPE IT, INSTEAD CHRIS ELITE LANDS RIGHT ON THAT INJURED LEFT SHOULDER WITH THE 630 SENTON!!!!! A HORRIBLE MISTAKE BY MALCOLM JONES COULD COST HIM EVERYTHING!!!! AND ELITE WITH THE HOOK OF BOTH LEGS!!!!

Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! THRRRRRR-

Kawajai: KICK OUT AT 2 AND 7/8THS! Malcolm Jones is urged to find his way out of the ring by the Joneset, and MJ instinctively crawls towards them while Chris Elite takes some time to catch his breath. Malcolm Jones is literally needing to be propped up by two members of his squad, and one of them cool him down with a damn towel and give him a gatorade to drink. It’s not traditional in pro wrestling but oh hell if you have the resource why not use it. LOOK AT THIS!!!!!! CHRIS ELITE GOES SOARING OVER THE ROPES WITH A FOSBURY FLOP TO THE OUTSIDE!!!!!!!!! MANY MEMBERS OF THE JONESET GET TAKEN DOWN, AND CHRIS ELITE SOCKS ONE JONESET MEMBER CHARGING AT HIM! NOW CHRIS ELITE’S ENTOURAGE CHARGES TO THE SCENE!

( The referee rushes out of the ring and attempts to mediate the chaotic environment, while Malcolm Jones is given time to recover. )

Kawajai: AND THE OFFICIAL IS ATTEMPTING TO RESTORE ORDER — BUT MALCOLM JONES FROM OUT OF NOWHERE GRABS CHRIS ELITE FROM THE TIGHTS AND SENDS HIM FLYING HEAD FIRST INTO THE STEEL STAIRS!!!! SHADES OF TWO WEEKS AGO ON VOLTAGE! CHRIS ELITE JUST WENT BOUNCING HEAD FIRST OFF OF THE STEEL RING STEPS!

Nick Angel: Malcolm Jones was given the reprieve as well as the distraction that he needed, and the World Heavyweight Champion has to take at least part of the blame for falling into that one! The referee begins his count, and Malcolm Jones is obligated to bring Chris Elite back in the ring; after this he takes a short breather before eventually breaking the ref’s count at “6”. Elite’s got a nasty bruise on the side of his head following the impact with those ring steps, and Malcolm Jones fires off with a loud kick to the face of Elite while he’s still doubled over and in recovery mode! MJ follows up with a clean right hand shot to the temple! Chris Elite follows up with a right hand of his own! Malcolm plants a fist straight to the jaw, and Elite fires a handful of punches to the torso of Jones! Elite with a Mongolian chop to the body! And MALCOLM JONES catches Chris Elite off guard with a nasty headbutt! Look at this, Chris Elite is holding his head in searing pain, so much so that even the referee is concerned!

Malcolm Jones (off-mic): YOU’LL BE IIGHT! YOU TOUGH RIGHT? YOU TOUGH RIGHT?!

Nick Angel: JONES WITH ANOTHER RIDICULOUS HEADBUTT, BASHING HIS OWN HEAD STRAIGHT INTO THE JAW! THAT SENDS SPIT FLYING OUT OF CHRIS ELITE’S MOUTH…. AND IT SETS AN INFERNO OFF IN CHRIS ELITE’S EYES! CHRIS TURNS BACK TO MJ, AND DELIVERS A MASSIVE RIGHT HAND! ANOTHER SHOT! SHOOT KICK TO THE SIDE! AND A ROLLING FOREARM TO FOLLOW UP! ALL CONNECT! AND CHRIS ELITE FINISHES OFF THE 5 BOROUGH COMBO WITH A LARIAT AFTER THE WIND-UP!!! BUT MJ VERTICAL LEAPS OVER THE ONCOMING ARM! COCAINA CLUTCH FROM BEHIND!!!!!!!!! NO ELITE SLIPS OUT OF IT AND COUNTERS WITH THE PELE KICK! MJ KNOCKED FOR A LOOP, THE TWO TURN TOWARDS EACH OTHER — JONES CATCHES ELITE OFF GUARD WITH A JUMPING CORKSCREW KNEE TO THE JAW!!!!! THAT TURNS ELITE INSIDE OUT! THAT MIGHT HAVE JUST DID THE CHAMP IN! MALCOLM JONES CRAWLS OVER HIM FOR THE COVER!

Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

Kawajai: CHRIS ELITE KICKS OUT! NOW A STILL SOMEWHAT DAZED MALCOLM JONES HOVERS OVER THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION… AND LOCKS IN THE COCAINA CLUTCH!!!!!!!! GOT HIM DEAD AND CENTER IN THE RING!!!!!!!!!!!! MALCOLM JONES SEEMED TO RUSH INTO THAT, NOT TAKING PLACEMENT INTO FACTOR, AND CHRIS ELITE IS ABOUT 3 FEET AWAY FROM THE ROPES, BUT AT THIS STAGE OF THE GAME THREE FEET MIGHT AS WELL BE THREE MILES! MALCOLM HAS ALMOST SNAPPED INTO AWARENESS OF THE OPPORTUNITY HE HAS RIGHT NOW, AND HE IS NOW PUTTING EVERYTHING HE HAS INTO THE COCAINA CLUTCH! CHRIS ELITE IS TRYING TO WORK THE WEIGHT OF HIS OPPONENT ON HIS BACK ONTO AN ADVANTAGEOUS POSITION…. MALCOLM JONES WRAPS THOSE LONG LEGS AROUND THE TORSO OF ELITE TO ADD ADDITIONAL PRESSURE, AND CHRIS IS REACHING OUT TO THE ROPES FOR DEAR LIFE! EVERY VEIN COMES POPPING OUT OF CHRIS ELITE’S HEAD AND NECK, HE’S TURNING RED, HE’S PUTTING EVERYTHING HE HAS INTO ESCAPING FROM THAT DEATHLY CLUTCH!!!!

Nick Angel: LOOK AT THE INTENSITY ON MALCOLM JONES’ FACE!!!! HE WANTS TO PUT CHRIS ELITE TO SLEEP, BUT THERE MIGHT BE A BIT TOO MUCH FIGHT TO DO THAT! CHRIS ELITE HAS FOUGHT HIS WAY UP TO A SOMEWHAT VERTICAL BASE, BUT THE COCAINA CLUTCH IS STILL LOCKED IN!!!

Kawajai: LOOK OUT LOOK OUT LOOK OUT! CHRIS ELITE SLINGS HIMSELF SHOULDER FIRST THROUGH THE CORNER!!!! AND MALCOLM JONES AS A RESULT IS SENT FLYING OFF OF CHRIS ELITE’S BACK, AND CRASHING HIS INJURED SHOULDER INTO THE RINGPOST!!!!!!!!! I CAN’T EMPHASIZE ENOUGH HOW INCREDIBLE THAT COUNTER WAS FROM THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION! HE HAS WILLED HIMSELF INTO KILLING TWO BIRDS WITH ONE STONE! THIS IS WHAT SEPARATES CHRIS ELITE NOW FROM THE CHRIS ELITE OF OLD, HE HAS FINALLY BECOME A STUDENT OF THE GAME!

Nick Angel: AND ELITE ISN’T FINISHED!!! ELITE SCOOPS MALCOLM JONES FOR A ROLL UP FROM BEHIND!!! THE REFEREE SLIDES DOWN FOR THE COUNT — BUT A MEMBER OF THE JONESET RUSHES INTO THE RING, SPECIFICALLY THE JONESET MEMBER WHO ASSAULTED BIG MIKE! THE REFEREE IS DISTRACTED, AND MJ ROLLS OUT OF THE ROLL UP AND IS BACK UP TO ONE KNEE — BOX OFFICE SMASH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! CHRIS ELITE WITH THE SUPERKICK TO THE KNEELING MALCOLM JONES!!!!!!!

Kawajai: MJ COUNTERS WITH THE LOW BLOW!!!!!!!! MALCOLM JONES WITH THE RIGHT ARM UPPERCUT STRAIGHT INTO THE GONADS OF THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION, JUST BEFORE HE COULD DELIVER THE BOX OFFICE SMASH!!!!! CHRIS ELITE’S ENTOURAGE JUMPS ONTO THE APRON IMMEDIATELY CRYING FOUL, BUT THE REF DIDN’T SEE A THING! BOTH MEN ARE DOWN!

( Chris Elite is on the ground holding his groin, and Malcolm Jones is on the ground holding his left shoulder and dragging his way to the nearest turnbuckle. After thirty seconds of recovery time, MJ makes it to the corner and the crowd begins chants of “CHRIS ELITE!” )

Nick Angel: I wouldn’t want to be Chris Elite right now! He just took a jewel jacking for the ages, and he appears to be suffering from off and on bleeding out of one of his eyes as well! The World Heavyweight Champion is bruised up, he’s suffering from a sore back, he may very well be working with a concussion after hitting the ring stairs the way that he did headfirst, and now his opponent Malcolm Jones has managed to drag himself up to his feet, leaning over the turnbuckle with that bad shoulder still plaguing him! NOW MJ WITH A DISPLAY OF AGILITY LEAPS UP TO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE IN ONE BOUND… AND HE LOOKS DOWN AT HIS UNRESPONSIVE OPPONENT WITH HIS SIGHTS SET ON THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION!!!! MALCOLM JONES TAKES THE DIVE!!!!! FIVE!!!!!! STAR!!!!!!!!! SWAG!!!!!! SPLAAAAAAAAASH!!!!!!

Kawajai: CHRIS ELITE JUMPS FROM THE FLOOR AND OUT OF THE WAY!!!!! BUT MALCOLM JONES STICKS THE LANDING AND MANAGES TO ROLL THROUGH IT WITHOUT INCURRING ANY DAMAGE! MJ CHARGES AT CHRIS ELITE WHO’S SEATED AT THE CORNER! C-NOTE BY MALCOLM JONES!!!!!!!! SPEAR!!!!!! SPEAR INTO THE CORNERED CHRIS ELITE!!!!! BUT NO!!!! CHRIS ELITE AGAIN JUMPS OUT OF THE WAY WITH A JUMPING CORKSCREW EVASION!!!! AND MALCOLM JONES AVOIDS ANOTHER SHOULDER TO STEEL COLLISION BY SPRINGING HIS BODY OVER THE ROPES WITH THE ASSISTANCE OF THE MIDDLE ROPE! MJ ACROBATICALLY LANDS ON THE APRON! CHRIS ELITE DOES SEVERAL BACK HANDSPRINGS ACROSS THE RING TOWARDS MJ! AND DELIVERS A JUMPING CORKSCREW ROLLING ELBOW TO KNOCK MJ OFF OF THE APRON! MJ DUCKS UNDERNEATH IT AND DELIVERS A ROUNDHOUSE KICK FROM THE APRON TO THE SIDE OF ELITE’S HEAD!!!! NO CHRIS ELITE DODGES IT WITH A CARTWHEEL EVASION!!! AND MALCOLM JONES STEPS INTO THE RING — ONE FOOT OF MALCOLM’S ACCIDENTALLY TRIPS OVER THE MIDDLE ROPE — BANG!!!!!! BOX OFFICE SMASH!!!!!!!!!!!!! HE JUST CAUGHT MALCOLM JONES SLIPPING WITH A MASSIVE SUPERKICK AS HE STEPS THROUGH THE ROPES!!!!!! THE GAME OF INCHES HAS BEEN WON BY CHRIS ELITE!!!!!

Nick Angel: CHRIS ELITE FRANTICALLY CRAWLS OVER TO MALCOLM JONES TO FINISH THIS MATCH!!!

Kawajai: …………. AND MALCOLM JONES ROLLS OUT OF THE RING JUST IN TIME!!!! AW MAN WHAT AN INCONVENIENCE FOR THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION! MALCOLM JONES HAS INSTINCTIVELY AVOIDED WHAT WOULD HAVE BEEN A GUARANTEED FINISH TO THIS CONTEST!

( Chris Elite is hunched over in the ring, banging his fists on the canvas. )

Chris Elite (off-mic): FUCK!
FUCK!
FUCK!
FUCK!
FUCK!
FUCK!
FUCK!

Nick Angel: Chris Elite is melting down before our very eyes! We have seen him defend his title against the likes of Impact and Jamie O’Hara, we saw him go 90 minutes against Mr. DEDEDE, but NEVER has the pressure been put on him the way it has tonight! This is without question the most enormous stage Chris Elite has ever competed on, this is the biggest spotlight either of these young prime athletes have ever competed under, and for Chris Elite this is his only opportunity at proving that he is not Icarus flying too close to the sun, this is his only chance at proving he belongs under these white hot lights!

( We cut to a split-screen showing a block party taking place in Brooklyn and another one taking place in Harlem, where thousands of people are gathered in the streets at both locations to view the championship match. We see a replay of Harlem jumping for joy following Malcolm Jones’ escape from the ring, while Brooklyn has a reaction of disappointment. )

Kawajai: As we can see earlier Harlem had a lot to celebrate earlier, as tens of thousands are gathered in the streets of New York to watch this battle of the boroughs anxiously! Chris Elite has a menacing scowl on his face, and he painstakingly drags himself out of the ring as well… AND CHRIS ELITE PULLS THE STEEL STEPS OUT OF PLACE! The non-incapacitated members of the Joneset are causing a fuss about this, and the Elite Entourage are responding in tow, but Chris Elite appears to be moving strictly off of tunnel vision! He can’t hear or see a damned thing around him, and that could spell absolute disaster for Malcolm Jones! Elite walks over to MJ who has still yet to recover from the Box Office Smash, and CHRIS ELITE DRAGS HIS DEAD WEIGHT UP ONTO HIS SHOULDERS!!!!! CHRIS ELITE IS LOOKING FOR THE ONE WINGED ANGEL INTO THE STEEL STEPS!!!!! THE REFEREE EXITS THE RING DEMANDING THAT CHRIS ELITE RECONSIDERS THIS DECISION, AND ELITE ISN’T EVEN ACKNOWLEDGING THE REFEREE’S EXISTENCE!!!!! THERE IT IS!!!!! LONG!!!!!!!!! KISS!!!!!!!! GOODNIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Nick Angel: NO!!! MALCOLM JONES FREES HIMSELF AT THE LAST SECOND!!! MALCOLM JONES BATTERS SEVERAL CROSS BLOWS INTO THE NOSE AND ENDS UP ON HIS FEET RIGHT BEHIND CHRIS ELITE! NOW MJ GRABS ELITE FROM BEHIND WITH A REAR WAISTLOCK…… WHAT?!??! WHAT?!?!??! MJ DEADLIFTS CHRIS ELITE OF OF HIS FEET, CLIMBS ON TO THE STEEL STEPS!!!! DUDE THIS IS NOT HAPPENING!!!! THIS IS NOT ACTUALLY HAPPENING!!!!!! JUMPING GERMAN SUPLEX OFF THE STEPS BY MALCOLM JONES!!!!!!!!!! THE BACK OF CHRIS ELITE’S HEAD SMACKS INTO THE LED RINGPOST!!!!!!! OH MY GOD…………..

( Both Malcolm Jones and Chris Elite collapse to the ringside floor, leaving the audience stunned. )

Kawajai: SON OF A BITCH!!!! NO WAY DID THAT JUST HAPPEN!!!!! YOU’VE GOT TO BE JOKING!!!!! MALCOLM JONES JUST DEADLIFTED A GROWN ASS MAN OFF OF THE GROUND, SPRUNG OFF OF THE STEEL STEPS, AND SENT HIM FLYING SEVERAL FEET BACK INTO THE RING POST!

Nick Angel: WITH A BAD ARM KAWA, WITH A BAD FREAKING SHOULDER! WHAT THE HELL IS MALCOLM JONES MADE OF??? AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, WHAT DO THESE TWO MEN HAVE LEFT????

( Replay of the move is shown, and we cut back to the live feed where the referee is back in the ring to begin his count. )

Ref: 1!!!!!

Nick Angel: Both camps of Chris Elite and Malcolm Jones are encouraging them to recover, but both of these ultra talented Elitists look completely spent! How could they not be??? This has been the respective performance of their careers, and the official is trying to be as merciful as he can with the count, but neither of them have budged after “Three!”

Ref: 4!!!! ……………. 5!!!! ……………… 6!!!!

Kawajai: Malcolm Jones has made it to all fours, while Chris Elite looks completely out of it.

Ref: 7!!! ………………. 8!!!!…………………

Kawajai: Malcolm Jones is up to a knee…. and he takes Chris Elite up with him! MJ wisely considering the champion’s advantage, as the ref’s count makes it to 9, and he slides Chris Elite back into the ring before breaking the ten count with himself! Had the roles been reversed here Malcolm Jones could have easily coasted to the victory off of a count out, but Malcolm Jones didn’t come here for moral victories, MALCOLM JONES CAME HERE TO WIN, AS MJ PULLS CHRIS ELITE IN LOOKING FOR THE L-TRAIN!!!!!!!! CANADIAN DESTROYER!!!!!!!!!!!

Kawajai: ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!?!? CHRIS ELITE COUNTERS INTO A CROSS ARMBREAKER!!!!!!!!

Nick Angel: HE SHOULD BE UNCONSCIOUS FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, BUT GOD GIVEN ABILITY AND PURE UNADULTERATED HEART HAS TAKEN HIM THIS FAR!!!! CHRIS ELITE JUST COUNTERED THE CANADIAN DESTROYER IN MID-AIR WITH THE CROSS ARMBREAKER!!!!!!! ONTO THE INJURED LEFT ARM!!!!!!! THERE’S NO WAY THIS CONTINUES!!!!

Kawajai: MALCOLM JONES HAS, AGAIN ON INSTINCT, LOCKED HIS FINGERS TOGETHER! REFUSING TO ALLOW CHRIS ELITE TO FULLY GET THE HOLD IN! BUT DAMN IT JUST THE PRESSURE PUT ONTO THAT ARM TO KEEP THE FINGERS LOCKED MIGHT BE TOO MUCH FOR JONES! CHRIS ELITE IS BATTERING HIS FIST INTO MJ’S HURT SHOULDER! THAT HAS BEEN A TARGET ALL MATCH, AND MJ’S HOPES AT WINNING THE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP ON THE GRANDEST STAGE OF THEM ALL ARE LITERALLY FINGERTIPS AWAY FROM BEING COMPLETELY DASHED!

Nick Angel: This is a significantly weakened Chris Elite however, and Malcolm Jones despite all the damage he’s taken still has a strength advantage! After all he didn’t just have his fucking head smashed into a steel post! Malcolm Jones now looks to be gaining leverage! MJ POWERS UP TO A POSITION OF LEVERAGE AND ROLLS CHRIS ELITE ONTO HIS SHOULDERS! THE REFEREE SLIDES FOR THE PIN!

Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! THRRRRRRRRRRRRR-

Nick Angel: SO CLOSE, THAT WAS SO CLOSE TO A THREE, BUT ELITE IS FORCED TO RELINQUISH THAT HOLD ON THE ARM TO KICK OUT! Brilliant escape for the challenger, who never allowed that submission to be fully locked in! The two men scramble up — CHRIS ELITE SNATCHES A HOLD OF THE LEFT WRIST! AND NOW AN ACROBATIC TAKEDOWN WRENCHING THE ARM! MJ falls to a seated position! CHRIS ELITE SEATED RIGHT BEHIND MJ, AND ELITE MANEUVERS A BODY-SCISSORS FROM BEHIND, AND SOME FOREARM BLOWS TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD! ELITE TRANSITIONS INTO THE ROLLING CRUCIFIX BACKSLIDE PIN USING HIS LEGS! MJ STACKED UPSIDE DOWN ONTO HIS SHOULDERS! THE REF SLIDES TO THE MAT!

Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

Kawajai: MALCOLM JONES ROLLS THROUGH THE PIN — AND CHRIS ELITE ROLLS THROUGH WITH MJ IN THE SAME MOTION — SMOOTH TRANSITION BY CHRIS ELITE INTO A SNUG CROSS ARMBREAKER!!!!!!!!! GOT IT!!!!! CHRIS ELITE HAS FULL CONTROL OF THE ARM THIS TIME!!!!! MALCOLM JONES IS SCREAMING AT THE TOP OF HIS LUNGS!!!! NO REMORSE FROM THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION…… AHHHHH HE’S YANKING THAT ARM BACK EVEN FURTHER!!!! MJ’S ARM IS LITERALLY BENDING BACKWARDS!!!!!!!!! FOR FUCKS SAKE REF, END IT NOW!!!!

Nick Angel: NO! IT’S NOT OVER! MALCOLM JONES GRABS THE BOTTOM ROPE RIGHT NEXT TO HIM WITH THE FREE ARM! WHAT INCREDIBLE LUCK FOR THE CHALLENGER, THE POSITIONING FOR HIM IN THIS MATCH COULDN’T HAVE BEEN BETTER IF IT WERE THROUGH DIVINE INTERVENTION! NOW CHRIS ELITE IS FORCED TO RELEASE THE HOLD!

Ref: 1!!!! 2!!!! 3!!! 4!!!!

Kawajai: Chris pushed the count all the way to four but he’s forced to oblige! MJ pushing himself back up with a look on a face as though he was just tortured, and he turns around! BANG!!!!!!! BOX OFFICE SMASH!!!!!!!!! CHRIS ELITE DROPS MJ WITH THE SUPERKICK, AND NOW A COVER!!!!

Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

Nick Angel: AND MALCOLM!!!! JONES!!!!! KICKS OUT!!!!!!!!

Chris Elite (off-mic): FUCK!!!!

Kawajai: IMPORTANT NOTE, Chris Elite did not quite get all of that Box Office Smash, but you really can’t give MJ enough credit for displaying the will to remain here in this title fight! The platform of Pain for Pride alone is enough to carry you to do things you might not normally be able to do! Chris Elite is out here dry heaving, taking long and deep breaths while trying desperately to maintain his sanity in this massive high pressure situation! Chris is also trying to drag Malcolm Jones back up to his feet — AND CHRIS HAS A HOLD OF THE LEFT ARM! CHRIS COULD BE LOOKING FOR ANOTHER CROSS ARMBREAKER!!! SMART MOVE THERE TO TARGET THE INJURY! OH! MJ CATCHES ELITE WITH A STIFF RIGHT FIREARM SHOT TO THE FACE! BUT ELITE KEEPS THAT WRIST CONTROL! SOME MORE DESPERATE FOREARMS FROM MALCOLM JONES TO BATTER THE CHAMPION, MJ RUNNING ON FUMES HERE, AND BECAUSE OF THAT CHRIS ELITE IS ABLE TO ABSORB THE BLOWS AND STILL MAINTAIN WRIST CONTROL…… OH WHAT THE HELL!!!!!! MJ SCRAPES HIS FINGERNAILS INTO THE EYES OF CHRIS ELITE, AND ELITE DROPS DOWN TO A KNEE SCREAMING IN PAIN! THE REFEREE COMES UP TO MALCOLM FURIOUS ABOUT THAT DIRTY MOVE, AND MJ JUST STANDS THERE WITH A WEAK AND TIRED LOOK ON HIS FACE! ELITE SOMEHOW STILL HAS WRIST CONTROL, BUT JONES HAS MATCH CONTROL!

Nick Angel: JESUS CHRIST!!!!!!!!!! CHRIS ELITE JUMPS UP AND HEADBUTTS MALCOLM JONES AS HARD AS HE CAN INTO HIS TEETH!!!!!!!!!

Kawajai: DID-DID YOU HEAR THAT CRUNCHING SOUND????? THAT COULD HAVE KNOCKED HIS ENTIRE ROW OF TEETH OUT!!! OH GOD BLOOD IS POURING OUT OF MJ’S MOUTH TO THE FLOOR….. THE CONCERNED REF IS RIGHT BEHIND MJ!

Nick Angel: CHRIS ELITE STILL HAS WRIST CONTROL! AND ELITE GOES FOR THE SHORT-ARM TRANSITION INTO THE THIRD BOX OFFICE SMASH!!!!!!!! IT CONNECTS!!!!!!!!!!

Kawajai: INTO THE REFEREE!!!!!!!! MJ COLLAPSED UNDER IT, AND THE REFEREE IS BLASTED WITH THE SUPERKICK INSTEAD!!!!!

Nick Angel: CHRIS ELITE LOOKS BAFFLED BY WHAT JUST HAPPENED! THE REF WAS IN THE WRONG PLACE IN THE WRONG TIME, WAY TOO CLOSE TO THE ACTION, AND HE PAID FOR IT! — BUCK 50 BY MJ!!!!!!!!!!!! CHRIS ELITE IS LAID OUT WITH THE TORNADO ONE-HANDED FACEBUSTER!!!!!!!!

( Malcolm Jones, Chris Elite and the referee are all laid out in the ring. Malcolm Jones however manages to raise one limp fist in celebration. )

Nick Angel: LOOK OUTSIDE THE RING, THE JONESET IS BEATING DOWN ON CHRIS ELITE’S ENTOURAGE! THEY’RE MERCILESSLY PUNISHING THE ENTOURAGE, AND MALCOLM JONES DRAGS HIMSELF INTO A CORNER HOLDING THAT LIMP LEFT ARM! OH LORD IN HEAVEN, BOTH OF MJ’S LIPS ARE BUSTED OPEN, AND BLOOD IS GUSHING OUT OF HIS MOUTH AFTER LITERALLY BEING HEADBUTT IN HIS TEETH! BUT DESPITE IT ALL MJ KNOWS AN ADVANTAGE WHEN HE SEES ONE, AND IT LOOKS LIKE MJ IS CALLING THE JONESET INTO THE RING TO TAKE ADVANTAGE! THE JONESET FORMING VOLTRON IN THE RING RIGHT BEFORE HIS EYES! THIS IS NOT GOOD KAWA.

Kawajai: Malcolm Jones’ goons, thugs and hooligans are all entering the ring now, surrounding Chris Elite like the vultures that they are! AND MALCOLM JONES CAN JUST SIT THERE, BLOOD GUSHING PROFUSELY OUT OF HIS MOUTH AND ALL WHILE THE JONESET ARE MERCILESSLY STOMPING THE HOLY HELL OUT OF THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION!!!!!!! TIMBERLANDS STOMPING INTO EVERY BODY PART THAT THE EYES CAN SEE! THIS AUDIENCE IS ABSOLUTELY INCENSED, AND MALCOLM JONES IS SITTING THERE LIKE THE PUPPET MASTER HE IS. FOR AS BEATEN UP, TRAUMATIZED AND DAMAGED AS HE IS SITTING IN THAT CORNER, HE MAY AS WELL BE SITTING ON A THRONE RIGHT NOW, BECAUSE AS CURRENTLY CONSTITUTED THE WORLD IS HIS!

( A massive commotion is heard from the audience. )

Nick Angel: WAIT A MINUTE!!!!!!!! WAIT A MINUTE!!!!!!!!!!!!

Kawajai: LOOK WHO’S CHARGING DOWN THE RAMP!!!!!! IT’S BIG MIKE!!!!!!!!!

Nick Angel: BIG MIKE WITH A LEAD PIPE IN HIS HANDS!!!! WE SAW HIM THIS PAST SUNDAY ON VOLTAGE, AND HE RESURFACES ONCE AGAIN HERE AT THE GRANDEST STAGE OF THEM ALL!!!!

Kawajai: BIG MIKE CHARGES INTO THE RING, AND HE CLUBS MEMBER AFTER MEMBER OF THE JONESET OVER THE HEAD WITH THAT LEAD PIPE!!!! GET EM BIG MIKE!!!! GET EM!!!! LEADPIPE SHOT INTO THE GUT TO ONE JONESET MEMBER! AND ANOTHER SHOT TO ANOTHER MEMBER OVER THE BACK OF THE HEAD! BIG MIKE DROPS THE LEAD PIPE AND DELIVERS A BIG TIME RUNNING SHOULDER TACKLE, SENDING TWO OTHER MEMBERS OF THE JONESET FLYING OUT OF THE RING! LISTEN TO THIS PLACE!!!!

Nick Angel: BIG MIKE TOSSES THE FINAL TWO REMAINING MEMBERS OF THE JONESET OUT OF THE RING! IT’S JUST MALCOLM JONES, COMING FACE TO FACE WITH THE MAN WHO SET UP TO BE NEARLY KILLED FIVE WEEKS AGO ON VOLTAGE! AND UNLIKE VOLTAGE, THERE IS NO ESCAPE THIS TIME!

Kawajai: BIG MIKE WITH A MEEEEEEEEEAN MUG FOR MALCOLM JONES, AND HE DRAGS HIM OUT OF THE CORNER — BUT MJ DELIVERS SHOTS TO THE FACE OF THE MUCH TALLER, MUCH MORE POWERFUL BIG MIKE! MJ LETTING OFF FURIOUS RIGHT HANDS, BUT HIS STRENGTH HAS BEEN SIGNIFICANTLY DECREASED WITH ALL OF THE DAMAGE HE’S TAKEN IN THIS MATCH —

Nick Angel: LOW BLOW!!!!!!!!! CHRIS ELITE WITH A LOW BLOW ON MALCOLM JONES, USING THE LEAD PIPE FROM BEHIND!!!!!!! POOR MALCOLM JONES’ EYES ARE BUGGING OUT OF HIS HEAD! HE CAN’T BELIEVE WHAT JUST HAPPENED TO HIM! CHRIS ELITE RELISHES IN THE TASTE OF SWEET, SWEET REVENGE! AND AS FOR MJ, GOOD LUCK HAVING ANY KIDS WITH ASTRAEA MY FRIEND!

Kawajai: CHRIS ELITE AND BIG MIKE SHARE A HUG, AND MALCOLM JONES IS MORE THAN LIKELY GOING TO RUE THE DAY HE TRIED TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF A COMRADERY, OF A FRIENDSHIP, OF A BROTHERHOOD FOR HIS OWN PERSONAL GAIN! HE TRIED TO DESTROY A BOND TO RENDER CHRIS ELITE INTO EASY PICKINGS; BUT THE TRUTH IS WHILE MALCOLM JONES MAY BE HIS BROTHERS KEEPER, HE IS ALSO HIS BROTHERS DEBTOR, AND TONIGHT JONES HAS A DEBT TO PAY!

Nick Angel: KARMA COULD BE COMING TO COLLECT HERE AT THE GRANDEST STAGE OF THEM ALL………CHRIS ELITE HOISTS MJ ONTO HIS SHOULDERS FOR THE LONG KISS GOODNIGHT!!!!!!!! …. WHAT?!?!??! WHAT?!?!?!??! BIG MIKE LIFTS CHRIS ELITE ONTO HIS SHOULDERS NOW!!!!!! THE 7 FOOTER BIG MIKE IS CARRYING THE WEIGHT OF TWO MEN ON HIS SHOULDERS!!!! MALCOLM JONES IS BEING ELEVATED AT WELL OVER 10 FEET IN THE AIR!!!!! AND CHRIS ELITE WITH THE HELP FROM BIG MIKE DELIVERS!!!!!! AVALANCHE LONG KISS GOODNIGHT OFF OF BIG MIKE’S SHOULDERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ONE WINGED ANGEL WITH A 10 FOOT DROP SPIKES MJ INTO THE CANVAS!!!!!! THE REFEREE IS COMING TO, AND BIG MIKE GETS THE HELL OUT OF DODGE!!!!! FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, MALCOLM JONES HAS BEEN DRILLED PRACTICALLY HEAD-FIRST THROUGH THE MAT, AND HE’S PROBABLY BEEN SNAPPED INTO TWO!!! CHRIS ELITE HOLDS IN THE PIN!!!!!

Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

( DING! DING! DING! )

( “Odee” by A Boogie hits over the sound system, and Chris Elite rolls over to his back to soak it all in. )

Rebecca Sawyer: HERE IS YOUR WINNER, AND STILL!!!!!!!!!!!! THE WOOOOOOOOOOOORLD HEAVYYYYYWEIIIIIIIIIGHT CHAMPIOOOOOOOOOOOOOON!!!! CHRRRRRRRRRRRRIIIIIIIIIIIISSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS EEEEEEEELLLLLLLLIIIIIIIIIIIITTTTTTTEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!

Kawajai: MY GOD!!!!! WHAT A FINISH!!!!!!! WHAT A STORY!!!!!!! WHAT A CHAMPION!!!!!

( The referee lays the World Heavyweight Championship over Chris Elite’s chest, and Elite sits up hugging and kissing the title with tears welling up in his eyes. )

Kawajai: IT’S A CELEBRATION HERE IN KINETIC FIELD, AND ALL ACROSS PAIN FOR PRIDE FESTIVAL! EVEN THE FANS ELSEWHERE IN THE PARK ARE GOING CRAZY! WHAT A RUSH!!!!

( Confetti falls all over Kinetic Field from a helicopter above the venue, and Chris Elite jumps up to his feet letting out high pitched screams from the top of his lungs. Big Mike bum-rushes the ring to give Chris Elite a big hug, and both men are sobbing on each others shoulder. )

Nick Angel: THERE’S NOT A DRY EYE IN BROOKLYN RIGHT NOW! AND WHAT A BRILLIANT, HEARTWARMING SCENE BETWEEN TWO BROTHERS, TWO GUYS WHO HAD EACH OTHER BACK THROUGH THICK AND THIN ALL SEASON LONG! WHEN CHRIS ELITE WAS CRITICIZED FOR SAVING BIG MIKE FROM BEING ELECTROCUTED AT SHOCK VALUE, OR WHEN BIG MIKE IGNORED COUNTLESS BRIBES TO TURN HIS BACK ON CHRIS ELITE! ALL OF IT WAS FOR THIS MOMENT!

( Chris Elite jumps to the top turnbuckle, screaming at the top of his lungs to the fanfare of the massive audience and holding up HIS World Heavyweight Championship. )

( We get a view of a chaotic celebration taking place in Brooklyn, New York; where thousands are gathered on the streets in front of a massive projector for a block party to celebrate Chris Elite’s victory. )

( FIREWORKS ROUND OFF ABOVE THE STADIUM: )

Kawajai: A MAGICAL MOMENT HERE IN LAS VEGAS FOR A MAN WHO WAS COUNTED OUT, CONSIDERED A JOKE FOR YEARS, A MAN WHO WENT NEARLY A DECADE NEVER WINNING A MATCH AT PAIN FOR PRIDE! HE BATTLED THE ODDS, BATTLED THE CRITICISM, BATTLED THE CHAIRMAN OF THIS ORGANIZATION, BATTLED THE BIGGEST EAW LEGENDS OF ALL TIME, BATTLED A MAN WHO WAS CONSIDERED TO BE LIKE A BROTHER TO HIM — AND THROUGH IT ALL HE HAS COME OUT VICTORIOUS! NOW HE HAS WON THE MAIN EVENT OF PAIN FOR PRIDE, AND IS STILL THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION!!!! HATE IT OR LOVE IT, THE UNDERDOG’S ON TOP!!!!!

( Chris Elite jumps into the crowd, crowd-surfing holding up the World Heavyweight Championship as the fireworks continue to blast up from the venue to give an incredible lightshow. The camera eventually fades to black. )

( EAW logo buzzes )

DAY THREE

(The familiar chrome figure of the Mother Goddess appears on screen. Compared the first intro, her body is glowing brighter, as if energy is coursing through her wired veins. The multi-colored pupils blink several times, as if she’s waking up from a temporary slumber)

Mother Goddess: My children you have returned! Welcome back to the Pain for Pride Festival – Day 3 of our 4-Day Program. All is welcome, all is beautiful, and we are all and all is one. Your energy gives me the power to bless those who grace us with their presence, displaying amazing feats of strength. Eight of these warriors are the best of their kind…

(The camera pulls back to show the Mother Goddess sitting in a sea of darkness. Several holo-projections appear, one showing Scott Diamond vs Darkane for the EAW Answers World Championship and Chris Elite vs Malcolm Jones for the EAW World Heavyweight Championship.)

Mother Goddess: Day 1 saw a child of darkness slay a returning beast who aimed to rule over the Land of the Elite. Day 2 saw two friends-turn rivals fight for the right to reign as king of one of the greatest cities this world has to offer. The one who calls himself ‘Elite’ overcame the odds, retaining his most prized position…

(Two more holo-projections appear, showing Stephanie Matsuda staring down Sienna Jade, and Diamond Cage staring down Rex McAllister)

Mother Goddess: Two more wars remain. One between two queens and the other between the irresistible force and the immovable object. Who will we see tonight? How many more contests will it take before we achieve maximum energy and tap into our true potential? Now come with me my children; our story yet continues!

(The eyes of the Mother Goddess begins to glow brighter as the camera zooms in closer)

Mother Goddess: DAY 3 OF PAIN FOR PRIDE, HOSTED BY THE EDC STARTS NOW!

(The arena is shown as a dazzling fireworks display is shown above 100,000+ of the EAW faithful.)

SG1: Welcome back to Pain for Pride! I’m “Your Friendly Neighborhood Vixen” SG1 and this is my partner, the “Voice of Empire” Gia Cervantes!

( http://media.discordapp.net/attachments/396155295174492172/457193030110412800/SIENNA-VS-CLOUD.png )

Gia Cervantes: We’re starting things off with the Specialist Scramble! Jasmine Peyton, take it away!

(“Chun-Li” — Nicki Minaj plays as the crowd cheers for Kianna Carter who comes out in a brand new bedazzled jacket and shades.)

Ayo!

(Fireworks go off as “Kianna Carter” is seen in red lettering. Kianna is bobbing her head to her theme song as she turns around and reveals the back of her jacket with “CARTER” with red jewels on the border of it. On her way to the ring, she begins to tag the hands of the fans.)

Jasmine Peyton: The following match is a SPECIALIST SCRAMBLE MATCH and it is for the EAW SPECIALISTS CHAMPIONSHIP. In this match, it starts off with two competitors and every five minutes a Empire Elitist will come out and get in the match. During the match, pinfalls and submissions can happen, but they will be considered the interim Specialists Champion. The woman to be the Specialist Champion when the thirty minute time limit expires will be the Specialists Champion. Introducing the first entrant, from Saratoga Springs, New York, she is KIIIIIIIIIIANNNNNNNNNNNNNA CAAAAAAARTTTTTERRRRRRRR!!

Gia Cervantes: This young woman has the biggest task of her EAW career so far with starting off this scramble match. Kianna Carter is an upstart on the Empire brand, who has scratched and clawed to survive the brand. She is someone who is constantly fighting for her victories and getting what she wants.

SG1: Kianna Carter hasn’t been so successful in the winning area on Empire, but I do believe upsets can happen in this scramble match. Can you imagine Kianna being the Specialists Champion? It could be a possibility.

Caw, caw, caw

(The camera pans to the top of the jumbotron with a bunch of black crows sitting on the edge of the jumbotron cawing loudly and in unison.)

(“Born to Die” — Sidewalks and Skeletons plays as the crowd boos for Chelsea Crowe who comes out with her Specialists Championship on her waist. Chelsea points up and in unison, the crows end up flying across the arena and to the outside as Chelsea smirks.)

Jasmine Peyton: Introducing the second entrant, representing The Crowe’s Nest, from Auckland, New Zealand, she is the CURRENT AND REIGNING EAW SPECIALISTS CHAMPION, “The Corporate C–t”, CHHHHHHELLLLLLLSEEEEEEA CRRRROWWWWWWWE!!

SG1: Kianna Carter has the biggest threat of this entire match up as the second entrant, the Specialists Champion herself, Chelsea Crowe has a huge task to defend the Specialists Championship in a scramble match! I think that she will overcome the contenders and retain her title!

Gia Cervantes: I wouldn’t count someone like Kianna out. I feel like we will see an upset tonight. There is no way that Chelsea walks out of Pain for Pride with the Specialists Championship!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

[30:00]

Gia Cervantes: Chelsea Crowe, the Specialists Champion, she has defeated nineteen other women to attain the title back at Grand Rampage at March. She managed to defeat Revy at Terminus in a Texas Bullrope Match. She has been such a dominating champion. Kianna Carter, an upstarter who would like nothing more to make a name for herself and perhaps, she can at Pain for Pride! Pain for Pride is known as the place where legends were made! The two women are circling around each other. They are trying to look for an opening to make the first move of the entire match up! At last, the two women lock up. Chelsea seems like she is winning this test of strength as she pushes Kianna to the corner! She holds her grip right there!

Jesse Carlton: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! THAT’S ENOUGH, CHELSEA!

SG1: Now, I’ve competed in many matches, but I was supposed to be in a Vixens Championship Scramble Match at Pain 4 Pride; however, I gave my spot up to a future Hall of Famer by the name of Cameron Ella Ava, so there is not telling what I think should happen, but frequent pins should be something I would advise. Chelsea kicks Kianna Carter in the stomach before whipping her to the other corner! Kianna holds on to the ropes in each side of her! Chelsea runs and connects with a lariat! No! Kianna is able to move out of the way! She gets on the shoulders of Chelsea and connects with a sunset flip! Kianna follows that up with a low dropkick! Kianna grabs Chelsea up and throws her to the corner! Kianna amps the crowd up before running to the corner and connecting with some double knees to Chelsea’s face! Kianna poses for the crowd, who cheers for her before running and connecting with another set of double knees to Chelsea’s face!

Gia Cervantes: Chelsea falls down to the floor and begins to crawl her way out of the ring! Kianna gets on the top turnbuckle that Chelsea’s back was against and situates herself on the top rope! She looks back at Chelsea, who is approaching towards her! Kianna Carter with knees to Chelsea’s face! No! Chelsea was able to catch Kianna from mid air! Chelsea has Kianna in a powerbomb position! Chelsea runs and connects with a turnbuckle powerbomb on Kianna! Kianna staggers forward holding her neck and Chelsea Crowe with The Little Death, the roundhouse freighed superkick! The upcomer is out cold thanks to the current Specialists Champion! Chelsea grabs Kianna, bends her back like bridge and connects with a reverse DDT! Chelsea gets up Kianna and takes her to the ropes, she places her in between the ropes. One half is outside the ring on the apron and the other half is in Chelsea’s hands! Chelsea connects with a rope assisted neckbreaker on Kianna Carter! Kianna is holding her neck in pain as Chelsea smirks and dusts her shoulder off, like it was so effortless to get control back in the match!

5…4…3…2…1…

( “Enemy” — Fozzy as Remi Skyfire walks from the curtain with Revy to take in the Pain for Pride scenery before running towards the ring and locking eyes with Chelsea Crowe.)

Jasmine Peyton: Introducing the third entrant, being accompanied by Revy, from Somerset, Kentucky, REEEEEEEEMIIIIIIIIIIII SKKKKKKYFFFFFFIRRRRRRRRREE!!

[25:00]

SG1: Now this is a match up I’ve been wanting to see! Remi Skyfire has had her issues with The Crowe’s Nest over the past few weeks! With Revy ring side, this an change the course of this entire match up! Chelsea throws Kianna to the side as Remi rushes towards Chelsea Crowe! Remi slides underneath the ropes and spears to Chelsea! Remi is firing shots on Chelsea! Chelsea is firing some shots back! The two women are going ballistic at one another as the Specialists Championship is on the line! The two women get up! Chelsea connects with a forearm! She follows that up with a clothesline to Remi Skyfire! No Remi is able to duck! She bounces from the side ropes and connects with a middle rope moonsault! She knocks Chelsea to the ground! Remi approaches Chelsea and begins to mount her with a series of elbows! She begins to smash her elbow towards Chelsea’s forehead! Oh my God! Chelsea is bleeding from her forehead! We have the first sign of blood in this match! Jesse Carlton is trying to separate Remi from Chelsea as she is successful in doing so!

(Revy is show ring side with cheering for Remi to continue dominating the match, but still showing concern about Chelsea making a come back in the match. :lupe:)

Gia Cervantes: Revy being a nice support system for Remi! Meanwhile as we focus back in this match up, Remi picks up Chelsea, who counters with a kick to Remi’s gut! Chelsea begins mounting on the back of Remi with giant fists. In the process, Remi gets on one knee as Chelsea bounces from the ropes and connects with a Yakuza kick! Remi is down on the mat for the first time in this match! It seems like Chelsea Crowe has taken advantage of eliminating her competitors one by one. The Crowe’s Nest mentality is strong in this match. You see Kianna Carter recovering at one of the corners. Meanwhile, Chelsea has Remi and connects with with a bunch of basement knee strikes to Remi’s side! A bunch of knees being striked at Remi Skyfire’s side! Remi is trying to look for a way out of these knee strikes,but Chelsea transitions it to a grapevine sleeperhold Remi is crying out of pain! She is trying to look for a way out of this, but the sleeperhold is locked in! If Remi cannot get out of the sleeperhold, she is going to fade away! I don’t think Chelsea should have applied to sleeperhold just yet. Wait, what’s going on here?

SG1: KIANNA CARTER IS BACK INTO THE MATCH WITH A SHOOT KICK TO THE BACK OF CHELSEA’S HEAD! THIS GETS THE SLEEPERHOLD OFF OF REMI FOR THE TIME BEING! KIANNA PICKS UP CHELSEA AND CONNECTS WITH A SIT-DOWN POWERBOMB ON THE SPECIALISTS CHAMPION! KIANNA GETS BACK UP, BOUNCES FROM THE SIDE ROPES AND CONNECTS WITH A LOW DROPKICK! SHE PICKS UP CHELSEA BY HER HAIR AND CONNECTS WITH A HEADBUTT. THIS SENDS CHELSEA DOWN TO ONE KNEE AS KIANNA CONNECTS WITH A KNEEBUSTER THAT SENDS CHELSEA FLYING BACK INTO THE SIDE ROPES! CHELSEA HOLDS ONTO THE ROPES! KIANNA RUNS AND CHELSEA KICKS KIANNA IN THE STOMACH! WAIT? REMI IS BACK IN THIS EQUATION AS SHE RUNS TOWARDS CHELSEA, WHO KICKS HER AS WELL! KIANNA USES THAT DISTRACTION TO KNEE CHELSEA IN THE STOMACH! IT LOOKS LIKE SHE IS GOING FOR A SUPLEX ON CHELSEA! CHELSEA IS STANDING HER GROUND. SHE IS NOT ALLOWING FOR KIANNA TO HIT THE SUPLEX! WAIT A MINUTE? REMI SKYFIRE IS HELPING KIANNA BY MOUNTING SOME ELBOWS TOWARDS CHELSEA’S BACK! THIS IS GOING TO WEAKEN THE CHAMPION, SO THAT KIANNA CAN CONNECT WITH THE SUPLEX! WAIT! REMI IS NOW ASSISTING KIANNA AND REMI AND KIANNA CONNECT WITH A SUPLEX ON CHELSEA! CHELSEA IS
DOWN!

Revy (with a beer in her hand as she shakes it while cheering): Woohoo (takes a sip to what will not be her only beer in the match)!

5…4…3…2…1

(“Money Bag” — Cardi B plays as Stella Star moonwalks out to a sea of boos from the EAW Universe! She has her arms out in confidence as she is taking her time to enter the ring.)

Jasmine Peyton: Introducing the fourth entrant, from Los Angeles, California, she is “The Star”, STTTTTTTELLLLLLLLA STTTTTTTTARRRRRRRR!!

[20:00]

Gia Cervantes: Here the is Stella Star, who seems to be taking her time in the ring! She is taking in the Pain for Pride scenery, which I do not blame her, but she has a scramble match and very limited time to get into the ring! By the look of Stella’s face, I think she realizes that she has a match before she rushes to the ring! Kianna Carter leaves Remi Skyfire with Chelsea as she focuses on Stella Star! KIANNA IS STANDING THERE AS STELLA SLIDES INTO THE RING! THE TWO WOMEN HAVE A STAREDOWN! THE TWO WOMEN ARE LOOKING OVER TO THE SCENE OF EAW FANS RALLYING THESE TWO WOMEN TO START BEATING THE HELL OUT OF ONE ANOTHER! IF ANYONE RECALLS, KIANNA GOT A VICTORY OVER STELLA A FEW WEEKS AGO ON EMPIRE! STELLA SAYS THE VICTORY WAS A FLUKE. I THINK STELLA COULD SEE THIS AS AN OPPORTUNITY TO REDEEM HERSELF! KIANNA IS LOOKING AT THE PAIN FOR PRIDE SCENERY A LITTLE MORE AND STELLA TAKES ADVANTAGE OF THAT OPPORTUNITY BY BLINDSIDING KIANNA WITH A SNAPMARE! Stella turns Kianna around and begins to unload some fists at Kianna! Stella gets up and gets Kianna up by her purple locks! Stella begins to mock Kianna’s mannerisms! She is showing disrespect to Kianna! Stella follows that up with a headbutt to Kianna, which doesn’t make her fall to her knees surprisingly enough, but Kianna headbutts Stella back!

SG1: Kianna connects with a slap to Stella’s face as she quickly grabs Stella and begins to mock Stella’s mannerisms back! Kianna does a moonwalk before kicking Stella in the face and connects with a dragon whip on Stella! Kianna grabs Stella and takes her to the corner! It looks like Kianna is going for Lights Out! She is going for that boxing combination punches to Stella at the corner! As soon as Stella sees an open, she delivers a punch of her own, that takes Kianna a few steps back! Stella continues to punch Kianna away from the corner! Stella gets on the top rope! She looks at Kianna who is rushing towards her and connects with a jumping reverse STO on Kianna Carter! Both women are down! Kianna grabs her neck in pain! Stella gets up, grabs Kianna and connects with a snap suplex! She grabs Kianna again and connects with a snap suplex again! She grabs Kianna again and goes for a third snap suplex! Stella gets back up and begins to moonwalk backwards! Kianna is holding to her back in pain! Stella rushes towards Kianna and connects with an overhead kick! It connects as Kianna falls into her side!

Gia Cervantes: Meanwhile with Chelsea Crowe and Remi Skyfire, Chelsea seems to be dominating the match once again which is a huge improvement from the last time we focused on Chelsea, who had taken a suplex from Remi and Kianna! Chelsea is stomping on the head of Remi! She is rapidly stomping on the head of Remi before transitioning smoothly to some knees to Remi’s head! It seems like Chelsea is trying to slow down the pace of her match with Remi as much as she can! It is almost time for our last participant in this scramble match!

(Revy is ring side looking concerned for Remi, hoping that Remi finds a way out of this situation.)

5…4…3…2…1..

(“Beast” — Nico Vega plays as Daisy Thrash comes out and takes it the Pain for Pride scenery before bolting to the ring!)

Introducing the last entrant, from Seattle, Washington, she is the “Razorblade Snowflake, DAAAAAAAAAAISSSSSSSSSSSSY THHHHHHHRAAAAAAASHHHHHHHHH!!

[15:00]

Gia Cervantes: Here comes the “Razorblade Snowflake” as she bolts and attacks Chelsea as soon as she enters the ring! Daisy Thrash mounts fists to Chelsea Crowe’s forehead! Daisy Thrash is unloading on Chelsea! She gets up along with Chelsea and connects with a bunch of short-armed clotheslines before picking her up again and throwing her to one of the corners! Chelsea holds onto one of the corners before rushing towards the corner with Chelsea in before connecting with a high knee! Daisy then gets in a headlock position and connects with a bulldog! Remi Skyfire connects with an overhead kick to Daisy! No! Daisy is able to catch Remi and swings her to the corner! This gets rid of Remi for a bit before Daisy focuses her attention on Chelsea! Daisy bounces from the ropes and connects with an enziguri on Chelsea! She then follows that up with an overhead kick to Chelsea Crowe!

SG1: That kick was enough to knock Chelsea out of the ring before Remi takes advantage with a snapmare to Daisy! Remi picks up Daisy and swings her to the corner by her arm! No! Daisy counters and throws Remi to the corner by her arm! Remi has her grasp between both sides of the turnbuckle! Daisy runs towards the corner with Remi in it! No Remi connects with an elbow to Daisy, which knocks her back a bit to check on her jaw! Remi uses the ropes to bounce her feet and connect with a springboard roundhouse kick! Remi goes for the cover!

Jesse Carlton: OOOOOOOOOOOOONE!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!

SG1: Daisy kicks out! OH! DAISY COUNTERS! DAISY CONNECTS WITH THE DAISY CHAIN! THE MUTA LOCK! REMI IS TRYING TO SCRAMBLE OUT OF THE WAY! SHE IS TRYING TO MAKE IT TO THE ROPES AS THE MUTA LOCK CONNECTS! IT CONNECTS! REMI IS STUCK IN THE CENTER OF THE RING! REMI HAS NO WAY TO GET OUT OF THIS MOVE! REMI IS SCRATCHING AND CLAWING, BUT SHE IS CONSTANTLY TRYING TO STRUGGLE HER WAY OUT OF THE MOVE! IT SEEMS LIKE DAISY HAS THE DAISY CHAIN LOCKED IN GOOD! REVY IS GOING CRAZY OUTSIDE OF THE RING. SHE IS TELLING REMI NOT TO TAP OUT! SHE IS ALMOST BEGGING REMI NOT TO TAP OUT! REMI SKYFIRE HAS NO CHOICE! DAISY HAS THE CHAIN LOCKED IN AS SHE APPLIES MORE PRESSURE! REMI IS STUCK! REMI TAPS! REMI TAPS!

Jasmine Peyton: Daisy Thrash is the Interim Specialists Champion!

Gia Cervantes: Just like that! Daisy Thrash is the Interim Specialists Champion! To let everyone know, the reign counts only when the time expires! Remi Skyfire is taking off the equation for the time being as Kianna Carter and Daisy Thrash are now fighting each other! Kianna connects with a European uppercut which knocks Daisy onto the side ropes, but not to the mat completely. Kianna whips Daisy to the side ropes. Daisy bounces from the side ropes and Kianna with kick to Daisy’s stomach before connecting with the Killa Kiki! The side slam backbreaker! Kianna decides to go for a cover in the process, but Daisy kicks out before Jesse Carlton can get in position for the count! Someone is pulling Kianna by her hair! The strength of the hair pulling was enough to pull Kianna away from Daisy as Stella Star smirks at Kianna, gives her a playful way before slapping her across the face! Kianna takes a few steps back as Stella takes a few steps back and connects with a superkick! No! Kianna is able to duck and move out of the way! She connects with a takedown and begins to punch away on Stella! Stella is able to reverse and roll over on Kianna as she begins to punch away back on Kianna! Stella picks up Kianna and connects with an armdrag, flipping Kianna right over before connecting with a switchblade kick! Kianna is down and out for the count! STELLA GRABS ONE OF KIANNA’S LEGS AND TWISTS THEM AROUND AND STELLA HAS NO ESCAPE! STELLA HAS THE FIGURE FOUR LEG LOCK LOCKED ON KIANNA! KIANNA IS TRAPPED! JUST LIKE IT SAYS IN THE NAME OF THE MOVE, THERE IS NO ESCAPE FROM THIS MOVE! KIANNA IS STUCK IN THE CENTER OF THE RING! KIANNA TAPS! KIANNA TAPS!

Jasmine Peyton: Stella Star is the Interim Specialists Champion!

[10:00]

SG1: THE SPOT FOR INTERIM SPECIALISTS CHAMPION WENT FROM DAISY THRASH TO STELLA STAR! JUST LIKE STATED BEFORE, THE REIGN ONLY COUNTS AS SOON AS THE TIME EXPIRES! STELLA CELEBRATES, BUT NOT FOR LONG AS SHE GOES AND GETS KIANNA! KIANNA WITH AN INSIDE CRADLE!

Jesse Carlton: OOOOOOOOOOONE!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOO!! THREEEEEEEEEEE!!

Jasmine Peyton: Kianna Carter is the Interim Specialists Champion!

SG1: In this match, you have to be extra careful because reigns can end in about three seconds. You saw how Stella was pinned to lose that interim reign? You not only have the option to make your opponents submit, but you can pin your opponents. Kianna gets out of the inside cradle in shock that she was able to keep Stella down for the three count! Stella is in shock as she crawls the the corner to sit down and process everything! Chelsea Crowe finds herself back in the equation by attacking Kianna from behind with a snapmare! Chelsea kicks Kianna around and has her back against the mat! Chelsea begins to stomp on the ribcage of Kianna Carter! Kianna is crying in pain as Chelsea continues to stomp on the ribcage of Kianna! Chelsea uses the ropes and steps on the second row of the ropes before jumping off and pressing harshly on the ribcage of Kianna! Chelsea then pulls Kianna away from the ropes and connects with a few handstand knee drops on Kianna! Chelsea is showing a bit of athleticism there. Chelsea then goes from handstand knee drops to picking up Kianna and having her on a seated position and kneeing her back!

Gia Cervantes: Stella Star decided that it was the perfect opportunity to come back into the match! Chelsea connects with an armdrag on Stella and has her on a seat position next to Kianna! Chelsea bounces from the side ropes and connects with a double low dropkick! Both Kianna and Stella are on their backs against the mat! Chelsea grabs both Kianna and Stella by the arms and drags them to one of the corners. I am not sure what she is intending to go with here, SG. But, it looks like it is not going to be beneficial to Stella or Kianna! Chelsea stacks Stella on top of Kianna at the corner! Chelsea smirks before connecting with a cannonball, The Haka, on both Stella Star and Kianna Carter! Oh my God! Daisy Thrash finds herself back in this match with a running dropkick on Chelsea Crowe! The running dropkick knocks Chelsea into the corner along with Kianna and Stella, knocking them over in the process as well! CHELSEA APPROACHES DAISY AND THIS KNEE SMASHES FASCISTS! THE SINGLE LEG FACEBREAKER CONNECTS ON CHELSEA CROWE! KIANNA CARTER RUSHES TO DAISY! BUT, DAISY WITH THE KNEE SMASHES FASCISTS ON KIANNA! STELLA RUSHES TO DAISY AND THE KNEE SMASHES FASCISTS ON STELLA! REMI SKYFIRE JOINS IN ON THE FUN, BUT IS MET WITH THIS KNEE SMASHES FASCISTS ON REMI! THE CROWD IS GOING INSANE AS DAISY THRASH IS THE ONLY WOMAN STANDING IN THE RING! SHE POINTS TO CHELSEA CROWE AND THE FANS CHEERING GETS LOUDER!

SG1: Daisy picks up Chelsea and has her in a Gory Bomb position! Daisy Thrash connects with Eat the Rich, the Gory Bomb on Chelsea Crowe! Daisy goes for the cover!

Jesse Carlton: OOOOOOOOOONE!!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOO!! THREEEEEEEEEEEE!!

SG1: Chelsea has her foot on the rope! Jesse Carlton is telling Daisy that Chelsea has her foot on the rope as Daisy is looking at Jesse with disbelief in her eyes! She thought Eat the Rich was going to be enough for her! There is five minutes remaining in this match! Time is running out! Daisy looks up and Remi Skyfire with a middle rope moonsault! Remi lands on Daisy! The moonsault connects! No! Daisy was able to catch Remi midair! Daisy grabs Remi by the crotch region and connects with No Pasaran! The crotch clutch suplex tips Remi Skyfire over! No! Remi is able to catch herself on her feet! Daisy doesn’t know that! Daisy turns around and KUSHIDA! REMI SKYFIRE CONNECTS WITH A KUSHIDA, A BASEBALL WIND UP PUNCH TO THE FACE! DAISY THRASH IS DOWN! MEANWHILE CHELSEA CROWE HAS STELLA STAR AT THE CORNER AFTER A WHIP! STELLA FALLS DOWN TO HER KNEES IN THE PROCESS! CHELSEA TAKES A FEW STEPS BACK AND RUNS TOWARD STELLA AND CONNECTS WITH A KNEE TO STELLA’S FACE KNOCKING HER BACK AGAINST THE CORNER! CHELSEA GOES AND PICKS UP STELLA AND STELLA SLAPS CHELSEA ACROSS THE FACE! CHELSEA SMIRKS AS SHE HOLDS ONTO HER RED CHEEK BEFORE GRABBING STELLA AND CONNECTING WITH AN ARMDRAG. CHELSEA FOLLOWS THAT UP WITH A KNEE STRIKE ACROSS STELLA’S BACK!

[1:00]

GIA CERVANTES: A MINUTE REMAINS AS INSTEAD OF PICKING STELLA UP, CHELSEA DECIDES TO GET STELLA AND CONNECT WITH THE CROW’S NEST, THE HEADSCISSOR KIMURA LOCK! STELLA IS TRYING TO FIGHT THE SUBMISSION HOLD! BUT, CHELSEA SEEMS TO HAVE THE SUBMISSION MOVED LOCKED IN! CHELSEA HAS FORTY-FIVE SECONDS IN ORDER TO MAKE STELLA TAP OUT! CHELSEA KEEPS LOOKING BACK AT THE CLOCK AS SHE APPLIES THE DANGEROUS SUBMISSION HOLD. MEANWHILE OUTSIDE OF THE RING, DAISY, KIANNA AND REMI ARE ALL HAVING A THREE WAY BRAWL OUTSIDE OF THE RING. THESE THREE WOMEN ARE PANICKING OUTSIDE OF THE RING JUST LIKE CHELSEA IS INSIDE! DAISY THROWS REMI OVER OUR ANNOUNCER’S TABLE! OH MY GOD! DAISY NOW HAS KIANNA CARTER, WHO TRIED TO USE THE DISTRACTION IN ORDER TO CAPITALIZE ON THIS MATCH! NO PASARAN! THE CROTCH CLUTCH SUPLEX ON THE ANNOUNCER’S TABLE! THIRTY SECONDS REMAIN IN THIS MATCH! REMI SKYFIRE CONNECTS WITH A TAKEDOWN ON DAISY THRASH! THE CROWD IS ON THE EDGE OF THEIR SEATS AS REMI SKYFIRE RUSHES BACK INTO THE RING FROM UNDERNEATH THE ROPES! CHELSEA LETS GO OF STELLA TO FOCUS ON REMI!

SG1: CHELSEA GOES FOR A CLOTHESLINE, BUT REMI DUCKS AND CONNECTS WITH THE RIGHT HAND OF DOOM! CHELSEA FALLS BACK INTO THE ROPES! WAIT, CHELSEA WAS PULLED FROM UNDERNEATH THE ROPES AND OUTSIDE THE RING! IT’S DAISY THRASH! SHE IS STILL IN THIS MATCH AS SHE RAMS CHELSEA AGAINST THE BARRICADE! MEANWHILE IN THE RING! REMI SKYFIRE GOES FOR THE THE SKYHOOK! THE SKYHOOK CONNECTS ON STELLA STAR! STELLA IS SCRATCHING AND CLAWING FOR A WAY TO THE ROPES, BUT THERE IS NO ONE THAT CAN SAVE HER. KIANNA IS DOWN, CHELSEA IS DOWN AND DAISY IS TAKING CARE OF CHELSEA! THE CROWD IS ON THEIR FEET AS TEN SECONDS REMAIN IN THIS MATCH! STELLA HAS NOWHERE TO GO! SHE IS IN THE CENTER OF THE RING WITH NOWHERE TO GO! FIVE SECONDS REMAIN!

Gia Cervantes: STELLA STAR TAPS OUT! STELLA TAPS OUT! REMI SKYFIRE IS THE INTERIM SPECIALISTS CHAMPION!

[BUZZ]

SG1: TIMES UP, REMI SKYFIRE WINS! SHE IS THE NEW SPECIALISTS CHAMPION!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

(“Enemy” plays as Remi gets on her knees as tears of joy falls down her face. Revy comes into the ring to celebrate and embrace Remi.)

Jasmine Peyton: The winner of the Specialists Scramble and NEW EAW Specialists Championship, REEEEEEEEEEEMIIIIIIIIIIIIII SKKKKKKKKKKKYFFFFFFFFFIRRRRRRRRRRE!!

Gia Cervantes: What a match! I almost thought that Chelsea was going to retain with the Crow’s Nest! Chelsea was so close to retaining, but Remi Skyfire was there at the right time at the right place!

SG1: Remi took advantage of the opportunity given to her and was able to capture the Specialists Championship! Gotta give it up for the other women in the match – Kianna Carter, Daisy Thash and Stella Star. All these women put out amazing performances and the match could have been theirs for the taking.

Gia Cervantes: But, Remi Skyfire is the Specialists Champion! Congratulations, Remi!

(Revy raises Remi’s arm up in the air as Remi is overcome with emotions as she raises the Specialists Championship high in the air.)

(A few moments later, Remi Skyfire and Revy leave the ring and make their way to the back. Left in the center of the ring is Stella Star who is in a seating position as she is trying to compose what happened to her. Her bodyguard, Sonya Correa has come out from the back to help her up to her feet.)

(Stella smiles at the kind gesture, but Sonya has a cold look on her face.)

SG1: OH MY GOD! SONYA CORREA JUST CLOTHESLINED STELLA STAR TO THE GROUND! SONYA GETS ON TOP OF STELLA AND BEGINS TO MOUNT SOME FISTS DIRECTLY TO HER FACE! STELLA IS SCREAMING FOR SONYA TO GET OFF OF HER, BUT SONYA IS NOT LISTENING AT ALL! SONYA PICKS UP STELLA BY THE HAIR AND THROWS HER TO THE CORNER! LIKE A FREIGHT TRAIN, SONYA GOES CRASHING ONTO HER WITH ANOTHER CLOTHESLINE. THIS SENDS SELLA FORWARD A BIT BEFORE SONYA CONNECTS WITH A BIG BOOT, KNOCKING STELLA TO THE GROUND! SONYA PICKS UP STELLA AND THROWS HER THROUGH THE ROPES AND OUT OF THE RING! SONYA EXITS THE RING HERSELF AS SHE GRABS STELLA AND THROWS HER AGAINST THE RING POST! STELLA’S SKULL GOES BOUNCING OFF THE RING POST!

Gia Cervantes: Someone stop, Sonya! I think she has finally snapped, but why? Sonya gets Stella up and rams her against the ring post! She delivers a series of knees to Stella’s stomach! Stella is screaming! Security is coming out to separate Sonya from Stella! Security is yelling at Sonya as she doesn’t say anything at all. She just looks at Stella with a cold look on her face. Stella falls onto the ground as she wraps her arm around her stomach. She is on her knees as she is looking at Sonya with confusion in her eyes. Sonya continues to look at her before making her way out of ringside and up the ramp!

SG1: This is a shocking turn of events! I always thought these two had a great relationship!

(Camera shows Sonya going up the ramp and into the back. Meanwhile, Stella is ringside being tended by security and medical personal.)

(The camera fades backstage near the parking garage area. We’re greeted by the face of Hurricane Hawk. He dons an all black suit, luggage at his side, giving off the implication that he’s about to leave the venue. He clears his throat before beginning to speak)

Hurricane Hawk: For nearly a decade I made EAW my home. I watched it evolve and as it evolved, I evolved. But a few weeks ago on Dynasty, I made it very clear that the Openweight Fatal 4 Way match was going to be a big moment in my career. If I won, good, great, I’m on my way… I’m THAT MUCH closer… but if I lost, which I did… I said I’d have to ask myself some tough questions… and after mulling over them since that night, I have the answers to those questions, and I’m content with them.

Hurricane Hawk: As of tonight, as of right now, actually… I’m retiring from in-ring competition.

(Hawk pauses and takes a couple of deep breaths)

Hurricane Hawk: I said I was content and here I am lying… (Another pause to regain his composure)… but really, I know this is the right decision, the decision that needs to be made. I’ve never known when to call it quits, I’ve never known when to say when and it’s gotten me in trouble, on more than a few occasions. But I want to be able to make this decision, I don’t want it to be made for me, I want the power to be able to walk away when I want to and how I want to.

Hurricane Hawk: And I meant every word when I said that I was blessed, I’ve had more opportunities than I probably deserve and I had a career that when I entered this business I couldn’t even dream of. So thank you. Thank you to everyone who ever supported me, thank you to anyone who ever gave me an opportunity, to every opponent I ever stepped in that ring with, whether it was a win or a loss it always a lesson.

Hurricane Hawk: I don’t know where to go from here, I don’t know what the future holds for me… but I’m excited for it.

(Hurricane Hawk nods at the camera, picks up his bags and begins walking towards the garage. The camera follows him until he fades into the darkness)

( http://media.discordapp.net/attachments/396155295174492172/456332266386227210/Lars-vs-Ahren.png )

(Video package depicting various highlights of Ahren Fournier and Lars Grier plays on the titantron as their feud for the Interwire Championship is recapped. Fournier pulling off a string of victories through illicit means is shown on the screen, Grier’s descent from grace with a graphic saying “REBIRTH” at the end of his highlights. The Interwire Championship is then shown before the camera pans out)

(Camera pans to ringside where Rebecca Sawyer is seen standing by in the ring with a microphone. “Reborn” by Kanye West and Kid Cudi hits as Lars Grier comes out. The lights dim as Kid Cudi appears, Lars Grier walking down the ramp to a chorus of cheers from the audience, some of which are clearly influenced by the live performance of the Man on the Moon, Mr. Rager, Mr. Solo Dolo, savior of the youths, Kid Cudi! As Grier is mid-way down the ramp, Kid Cudi begins singing his lyrics from the song to a rousing ovation from the audience in Las Vegas. Grier wears a smile on his face as he enters the ring, readying to be introduced)

Rebecca Sawyer: The following match is scheduled for one fall and will be contested for the EAW Interwire Championship! Introducing first, from Cincinatti, Ohio, weighing in at 265 pounds… LARSSSSSSS GRIERRRRRRR!!!!!!

Kawajai: Grier is out tonight trying to show that, after a series of failed attempts to capture the World Heavyweight Championship, he’s “reborn.” Tonight he has the opportunity to do exactly that as he takes Ahren Fournier to the task and aims to threaten and obtain his Interwire Championship.

(Ominous music begins playing throughout the arena. The aisles are lined up by lit torches. On top of the ramp, there is a giant trojan goat — like a trojan horse — but, a goat.)

(Moments pass the Trojan goat slowly gets pulled down to the ring by 2 people in creepy goat masks, and old Trojan outfits. They come to a stop at the end of the ramp, and a hatch under the goat opens up. Multiple people in plague doctor outfits make their way from the giant Trojan goat and up the ring steps in single field line, before splitting up at the bottom of the ramp and begin to line up the ring apron.)

(A moment goes by as one of the people in the plague doctor outfit make their way inside the ring, and walk to the center. The rouge plague doctor sprouts some black wings and rips his mask off, revealing its Ahren Fournier. “Incredible” by SECRETS begins to play He then rips off his plague doctor jacket revealing the shiny Interwire Championship. Ahren whips out his umbrella which says “Pain for Pride, June 21-24” as he gives an evil laugh and flaps arms like wings.)

Rebecca Sawyer: And his opponent, from Pawtucket, Rhode Island, weighing in at 210 pounds…. HE IS THE EAW INTERWIRE CHAMPIONNNNNN!!!!!…. “THE VIRUS” ….. AHRENNNNNNNNNN FOURNIERRRRR!!!!

Nick Angel: Ahren Fournier has eclipsed the competition every endeavor he’s been tasked with. Fournier’s done everything he possibly could in the division that he’s in and become one of the greatest Interwire Champions of all time in a matter of mere months. Tonight this is an opportunity for him to expand on his already impressive resume by defeating someone that barely lost out on being World Champion in Lars Grier.

Kawajai: Ahren Fournier, the Interwire Champion, is out to prove that his championship is on that status, at least when it’s held by him, and his competition tonight is going to FORCE him to prove that.

( Ahren turns to the crowd. )

Ahren: HOW DO YOU SPELL “GOAT”????

Crowd: A

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Kawajai: This bout for the Interwire Championship is underway! The bell sounds and there’s an air of tension in the arena right now, almost so thick you could cut it with a knife, and Lars Grier and Ahren Fournier definitely feel that atmosphere as they circle and pace around each other, slapping hands before entering a classic tie-up! Ahren Fournier is trying with all of his might, but Lars Grier almost instantly overpowers him, backing into the corner and up against the turnbuckles, forcing a stoppage by the referee as Ahren Fournier grabs the ropes! The two are briefly separated, but immediately Lars goes back on the offensive as he connects with a clubbing palm thrust into the throat of Ahren Fournier! That palm thrust sends Ahren Fournier staggering back, almost flying over the ropes, but Lars Grier makes sure he can’t escape his grab as he yanks Fournier by the throat and aggressively pulls Fournier back in the middle of the ring, now darting off the ropes as Fournier stands prone in the center of the ring, trying to meet him in the middle for a shoulder tackle, but Fournier demonstrates his impressive athleticism by vertically leaping over Lars Grier, bouncing off those ropes on the follow-through and catching Grier as he hasn’t reset his sights in the right direction for a flying forearm smash!

Nick Angel: And that flying forearm smash just leveled Lars Grier! Ahren Fournier is showing he isn’t to be missed with tonight and that’s a message that’s going to be delivered to Lars Grier the hard way. Ahren Fournier darts toward the ropes, now scaling up them, and as he’s on the second he wastes no time, in a hurry to execute his entire offensive arsenal, and pounces downward onto Lars Grier with a double foot stomp — but Grier moves out of the way, and I think Ahren Fournier may have tweaked his leg on that foot stomp attempt! Ahren Fournier is moving around gingerly as Lars Grier immediately gets back up, and a chop block to the back of Fournier’s tweaked leg floors the incumbent champion, and Lars Grier immediately follows this up with a lateral press pin!

Ref: ONEEEEEEE!!!!…. TWOOOOOOOOO!!!….

Kawajai: A kickout by Ahren Fournier! Fournier isn’t going to go down that easily. The champion has fought through adversity in the past and tonight’s test isn’t going to be any different! Lars Grier yanks Ahren Fournier up by the head, again backing him in the corner against the turnbuckles, now spreading his arms wide apart, gesturing, and finally connecting with a knife-edged chop to the prone chest of Ahren Fournier! You could hear the yelp coming from the mouth of Ahren Fournier as Lars Grier connected right in the heart of Fournier! Lars Grier is setting Ahren Fournier up for another knife-edged chop, but he fakes it and then transitions the apparent knife-edged chop into a palm thrust to the throat! Lars Grier is trying to crush the windpipe of Ahren Fournier! Fournier immediately begins favoring his throat as he uncontrollably lurches forward, now fallen to both knees as Lars briefly begins scaling the ropes, and now Lars descends from the ropes and plunges into the lifeless body of Ahren Fournier with a forearm smash to the back of his neck! That forearm smash completely LEVELS Ahren Fournier, and Lars Grier now gets on top of Fournier, pounding away with a plethroa of closed-fist strikes to the temple of the champion! Lars Grier is completely subduing the Interwire Champion Ahren Fournier thus far, and now he strikes his distance a little bit as he readies for his next explosive maneuver. Ahren has that glazed-over look in his eyes as the camera pans in on his face, and now Lars wrenches him, forcing him up to his feet and applying a double underhook over the back of Ahren, folding those arms and promptly taking him up and THROWING him down for the double underhook powerbomb! Lars Grier hooks the leg for the cover immediately afterward! NEW INTERWIRE CHAMPION!

Ref: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!….. TWOOOOOOOOO!!!!….

Nick Angel: BUT A KICKOUT BY AHREN FOURNIER! Ahren Fournier saves his bacon and snatches life from the jaws of death right there as he remains Interwire Champion at least for a moment longer! Lars Grier isn’t wasting a moment of time letting Ahren Fournier recuperate as he takes him by the hand and stands him back to a vertical base! Ahren Fournier looks completely overwhelmed right now as Lars yanks his arm, pressing him into the ropes, and now whipping him off the ropes to try and meet him in the middle of the ring with a knee to the midsection, and it connects! That running knee to the midsection of Ahren Fournier sends the Interwire Champion tumbling down to the canvas, and Lars isn’t relenting with this all-out onslaught as he connects with a flurry of mudhole stomps to the shoulder, sternum, and neck of Ahren Fournier! Fournier is writhing in pain on the mat as the prospective champion Lars Grier grabs the current champion by the nape of his neck, taking him back to a vertical base and now trying to toss him to the outside like a pile of garbage — AND HE DOES EXACTLY THAT AS AHREN FOURNIER GOES FLYING OVER THOSE TOP ROPES! FOURNIER LANDED AWKWARDLY ON HIS BACK, AND AFTER TWEAKING HIS LEG EARLIER IN THIS BOUT, ARE AHREN’S HOPES OF RETAINING VIRTUALLY DASHED? LARS IS MAKING HIS WAY TO THE OUTSIDE, NOT WANTNIG TO ALLOW FOURNIER ANY TIME TO RECOVER, BUT IT SEEMS LIKE LARS HAS OTHER PLANS! LARS WAS GOING TO THE OUTSIDE BUT INSTEAD HE’S WAITING FOR THE FAINTEST SIGN OF LIFE FROM FOURNIER, AND AS FOURNIER STRUGGLES TO HIS FEET, BLIND TO THE FREIGHT TRAIN THAT AWAITS IN HIS REAR VIEW, GRIER DASHES OFF ONE END OF THE RING’S ROPES AND SPRINGS OVER THE OTHER TO CONNECT WITH A TOP-ROPE SUICIDE DIVE! GRIER GOT EVERY LAST BIT OF THAT ONE, COMPLETELY LAYING OUT AHREN FOURNIER ON THE OUTSIDE! AND HE’S STANDING! LARS GRIER IS STANDING ON HIS FEET! WOW!

Kawajai: What an immensely impressive display thus far from Lars Grier! Ahren Fournier ain’t no easy fish to fry but right now Lars is taking him behind the woodshed — a shock to those of us who have witnessed the Interwire Championship reign of Ahren Fournier transpire! It maybe wasn’t the smartest move opting for the aerial attack, but Lars Grier liked his chances and his risk paid off right there with a high reward! Lars Grier riles up the crowd as he makes gestures with his hands, and they’re fully invested! Lars Grier isn’t just trying to win the Interwire Championship — he’s trying to injure this man Ahren Fournier! Lars now uncovers a piece of mat on the outside and completely bares an area of exposed concrete, undoubtedly with bad intentions on the mind! Ahren Fournier appears completely incapacitated right now, just laid out on the outside, and Lars is taking his sweet time understandably knowing he’s picking the bare bones of an all-but-defeated foe! Lars grabs Ahren Fournier up by the hair, and Fournier isn’t showing even the most remote sign of resistance as Lars seems in prime position to do whatever he wants with the champion, now wrenching his arm over the head of Ahren Fournier and hoisting him up in a Fireman’s Carry position! Something devastating is about to happen one way or another, and Lars Grier is getting cocky, just holding the completely lifeless Fournier in that fireman’s carry position, exhibiting his unbelievable physical prowess, and now dropping him on the exposed concre–NO! FOURNIER SOMEHOW LANDS ON HIS FEET, BACK TO A VERTICAL BASE, AS GRIER FOOLISHLY WAITED JUST A MOMENT TOO LONG TO EXECUTE THE MANEUVER, AND NOW FOURNIER TRIES TO WHIP GRIER OVER INTO THE STEEL RING POST!!!

Nick Angel: BUT GRIER STILL HAS FAR MORE STRENGTH, TURNING FOURNIER AROUND AND WHIPPING HIM BACK-FIRST INTO THE STEEL RING POST! LARS GRIER IS INCENSED! GRIER IS ABSOLUTELY IRATE, AND IN A FURY HE CHARGES TOWARD THE STEEL RING POST — RAVENBEAK!!!! THE SPEAR INTO THE STEEL RINGPOST!!! — BUT AHREN FOURNIER MOVES OUT OF THE WAY IN THE NICK OF TIME, BRIEFLY DASHING OVER TO THE BARRICADE, AND LARS GRIER HITS HEAD-FIRST INTO THE STEEL RING POST! LARS GRIER JUST ABSORBED A MASSIVE AMOUNT OF PUNISHMENT FROM THAT STEEL RING POST, AND I CAN TELL YOU MATTER-OF-FACTLY THAT ONE IS GOING TO HURT TOMORROW! AHREN FOURNIER FINALLY HAS A MOMENT TO CATCH HIS BREATH AND RECOVER, AND THIS IS THE INTERWIRE CHAMPION’S WINDOW OF OPPORTUNITY REOPENING AFTER LARS GRIER HAD SEEMINGLY CLOSED IT SHUT, LOCKED THE DOOR, AND THREW AWAY THE KEY! LARS GRIER IS COMPLETELY LAID OUT, AND NOW AHREN FOURNIER MUSTERS JUST ENOUGH STRENGTH TO WALTZ ON OVER TO GRIER, STRUGGLING BUT FINALLY MANAGING AFTER SEVERAL MOMENTS TO TAKE HIM UP TO HIS FEET, AND FOURNIER IS MARCHING OVER TO THE CONCRETE THAT WAS EXPOSED BY LARS GRIER! AND IN A CLASSIC CASE OF REAPING WHAT YOU SOW, FOURNIER’S STRENGTH IS RENEWED AS HE CONNECTS WITH A SNAP SUPLEX TO LARS GRIER RIGHT UP AGAINST THAT EXPOSED CONCRETE! GRIER IS SPASMING IN AGONY, ROLLING OVER ON THE EXPOSED CONCRETE IN A FIT OF ABJECT PHYSICAL SUFFERING, AND FOURNIER KIPS UP LIKE IT AIN’T NO THING! A KNOWING GRIN FORMS ON THE EXPRESSION OF AHREN FOURNIER AS HE TUGS ON THE HAIR OF GRIER IN UNISON WITH THE HEARTSTRINGS OF THE FEMALES IN THE AUDIENCE, THROWING HIM UNDER THE BOTTOM ROPE AND BACK ONTO THE CANVAS IN THE RING, FOLLOWING HIM IMMEDIATELY THEREAFTER! WHAT’S FOURNIER GOT PLANNED???

Kawajai: Fournier re-enters the ring as the tides, make no mistake about it, have turned! Fournier is smacking the head of Lars Grier, taunting him, as if to say “you almost got me but I still escaped your clutches because that’s what a champion does,” and Fournier is just toying with the helpless Lars Grier! Grier can’t do anything about it after taking that Snap Suplex on the exposed concrete and running head-first into the steel ring post, taking a massive amount of punishment that would have completely ended someone with the frame of Ahren Fournier, but that’s why Fournier’s the champion! He works smarter, not harder, and now Lars Grier is in the middle of the ring, trying to use his hands to spring himself back to a vertical base, but it might not be to any avail as Ahren Fournier connects with a mudhole stomp to the side of Lars Grier’s head, sending him down again! Fournier is taunting him, mocking him with hand gestures and ridiculous facial expressions, and that’s fuelling Lars Grier to once again try to spring himself back upright, and this time instead of a mudhole stomp Ahren darts off the ropes, meeting Lars in the middle of the ring — STORYBOOK ENDING!!! STORYBOOK ENDING!! THE CURB STOMP!!!!!

Nick Angel: BUT LARS GRIER IN COMPLETE DESPERATION CATCHES HIM IN THE AIR, TAKING HIM UP AND CONNECTING WITH A QUICK SAMOAN DROP! BOTH COMPETITORS ARE LAID OUT, BOTH OF THEM ARE CATCHING THEIR BREATH AND INCHING TOWARD THE ROPES. THE CROWD IS STUNNED! LARS GRIER HAVING ANY GAS LEFT IN THE TANK IS A COMPLETE SHOCK TO THIS JAM-PACKED AUDIENCE, BUT IT SEEMS EVEN WITH THAT SAMOAN DROP AHREN FOURNIER STILL HAS MORE STRENGTH LEFT IN HIM THAN LARS DOES! YOU CAN SEE LARS GRIER FAVORING HIS BACK AFTER EXECUTING THAT SAMOAN DROP, NO DOUBT SHOWING THE ADVERSE EFFECTS OF THE PUNISHMENT HE TOOK ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING, SOME OF IT SELF-IMPOSED EVEN! AHREN FOURNIER IS USING THE ROPES TO LEVERAGE HIMSELF BACK UP TO HIS FEET, AND LARS GRIER DOES THE SAME! GRIER IS HOLDING HIS BACK AND HIS HEAD IN PAIN, AND YOU CAN SEE A BRUISE ON GRIER’S HEAD VIRTUALLY THE SIZE OF A BASEBALL! UNBELIEVABLE WHAT GRIER IS SOLDIERING THROUGH RIGHT NOW AS HE WILDLY CHARGES TO THE CORNER FOURNIER IS POSITIONED TRYING TO EXECUTE THE RAVENBEAK — BUT FOURNIER EASILY DODGES, DIVING OUT OF THE WAY AND SENDING GRIER HEAD-FIRST INTO THE MIDDLE TURNBUCKLE! FOURNIER IS SIZING HIM UP AS GRIER STAGGERS BACK, AND FOURNIER GRABS A HANDFUL OF TIGHTS AS GRIER WAS STILL GROGGILY FLAILING! THE ROLL-UP!

Ref: ONEEEEEEE!!!!!… TWOOOOOOOOO!!!!!… THRRRR—-

Kawajai: BUT SOMEHOW A KICKOUT FROM LARS GRIER! GRIER IS POWERING THROUGH ADVERSITY ON A GOD-LIKE LEVEL RIGHT NOW, AND FOURNIER IS IN DISBELIEF! AHREN FOURNIER BANGS HIS FISTS AGAINST THE MAT IN FRUSTRATION, NOW SPITTING ON THE MAT AS HE CATCHES HIS BREATH, AND FOURNIER CONNECTS WITH A VIOLENT, STIFF SHOOT KNEE TO THE CRANIUM OF LARS GRIER! GRIER IS GOING IN THE CONCUSSION PROTOCOL AFTER THIS ONE, NO DOUBT ABOUT IT! LARS GRIER IS COMPLETELY LAID OUT, NOT MOVING A MUSCLE! FOURNIER COULD GO FOR THE COVER RIGHT NOW AND CONCEIVABLY WIN, BUT HE’S FORCIBLY TAKING GRIER UP TO A VERTICAL BASE, THROWING HIM OFF THE ROPES, AND NOW BOUNCING OFF THE OTHER SIDE OF THE ROPES AND MEETING GRIER IN THE MIDDLE! PROTECT YA NECK!!! THE PROTECT YA NECK CONNECTS! THAT CLOTHESLINE FROM HELL COMPLETELY KNOCKS LARS GRIER’S BLOCK OFF! GRIER’S EYES ARE BLOODSHOT, HIS EARS ARE RINGING, THE BIRDS ARE CHIRPING IN THE ORBIT OF HIS HEADSPACE, AND AN EXHAUSTED FOURNIER COLLAPSES OVER GRIER FOR THE COVER! SAY GOODNIGHT!

Ref: ONEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!…. TWOOOOOOOOO!!!!!…. THRRRRR—

THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

(An exhausted, breathless Ahren Fournier is handed his Interwire Championship as the referee raises his arm. Fournier after taking his title collapses in the ring for a brief moment, then rolling to the outside and getting down on two knees, taking a moment to breathe after the grueling, hard-hitting affair he just endured)

Rebecca Sawyer: The winner of this match… AND STILLLLLLLL THE EAW INTERWIRE CHAMPION… AHRENNNNNN FOURNIERRRRR!!!!!

Kawajai: Lars Grier put his absolute best foot forward tonight, trying to show that he was “Reborn,” and he shows grit, tenacity, heart, vigor, and a renewed energy the likes of which we haven’t seen from him in some time — but Ahren Fournier’s smarts allowed him to prevail! It’s more of those smarts and less of the brawn that’s defined Lars thus far that Grier is going to need to get him over the hump!

Nick Angel: But can we talk about the showing from Ahren Fournier? He just went out there and got completely dominated by Grier early on, only to use Grier’s own tactics against him after Lars took off the mat and exposed the concrete on the outside. That’s why Fournier is the Interwire Champion! Taking nothing away from Lars Grier, who competed and against most guys probably would have come out with the “W” tonight, Ahren did his thing and did it big! You’ve got to wonder what’s next for Fournier as he shows a world of promise, and in another light, what’s next for Lars? The possibilities are endless, but tonight on the biggest showcase in EAW, Ahren Fournier prevailed.

( Ahren is on the top turnbuckle screaming: )

Ahren Fournier: BAHH BAHHH BAHH BITCH IM LIL GOATY!

( The camera transitions towards the backstage, as a group of men wearing lavishing black suits are seen posed together. They currently blockade the entrance doors, as several flashes of camera lights can be seen reflecting on the closed doors. )

???: Make way, make way….

( The group of men instantly splits up into halves, revealing the CFO of Elite Answers Wrestling, former EAW Undisputed Hardcore Champion and EAW Hall of Famer, Andy Dominguez aka WWEFan. )

( Dominguez enters through the doors but with a ghastly figure remaining in the distance. Dominguez looks around with joy and excitement, as he scans around the boisterous backstage area to see everything is okay. He walks back towards the entrance, standing right next to the unknown figure. )

Andy Dominguez: Well, it is an honorable pleasure to have you back, dear old friend…

( The figure slowly emerges from the shadowed area, as the person is revealed to be another former EAW Undisputed Hardcore Champion, and EAW Hall of Famer — Lethal Consequences. Lethal is wearing a button down shirt and an Adobe House dad hat and shades on. He has a look of total apathy on his face. )

Lethal Consequences: Yeyeye, asskissing nostalgia time. So they made you the CFO of this place huh? Stupid.

Dominguez: Yeah, but you know me man I’ve always been about the money.

LC: Coolbeans. Hey make sure you bring some of that cheddar over to https://www.adobehouserecords.com/ and get yourself a copy of some dope cuts.

Dominguez: I’d be delighted to! But I’m afraid it’ll have to wait until a later time, I have to be in the VIP board lounge for the viewing party. A lot of the board seems to be pretty concerned about that Ronn Banks match.

LC: Shit, if the board really wants to make some cheddar they should have everyone visit https://www.adobehouserecords.com/store

Dominguez: I suppose so… say man doesn’t this environment just give you that “feel” again of the old days? Obviously everything is much bigger, but it feels like just yesterday when you and I were hitting those roads and going from show to show, night to night, killing it in front of every crowd. But the roster is so big now and there’s so much competition now, it almost makes me wanna … test the waters just a “little” bit. What say you?

LC: Eh. I’m good not being a paraplegic. Thanks.

Dominguez: Haha. I suppose you have a point. Still, I’ve been doing a lot of training to keep myself in pretty good shape. I just can’t help but wonder how much that training is paying off?

( Dominguez is interrupted; he looks off-camera. )

Dominguez: Well look who it is!

( Camera pans to Woogieman holding bunch of his own t-shirts after handing them off to several other people. He approaches the two Hall of Famers. )

Woogieman: Well Woogie be damned! If it isn’t the legendary Lethal Consequences, and my boss Andy Dominguez! Hall of Famers, legends, how does it feel to be in the presence of THE WOOGIEMAN????

( Woogieman holds up his authentic t-shirt. )

Woogieman: AVAILABLE ON www.EAW.com/store TODAY!

( Dominguez rolls his eyes. )

Dominguez: Seriously? Another cheap plug?

LC: Hey, I like this guy! I think he might be the future.

Woogieman: Ya see Mr. CFO? PERSONAL ENDORSEMENT from an EAW Hall of Famer, such as yourself. We’re in Vegas tonight, and a former Mr. CITV, “Mr. Money” himself such as you had ought to be smart about who you put your money behind down the road at the MGM Grand! Because you can bet your your cushy seat back at EAW Headquarters — hell you can bet the whole company — that at Pain for Pride Festival Night 4? It’s gonna be #WOOGIEFTW

( Woogieman holds up his #WOOGIEFTW authentic t-shirt, and Lethal Consequences immediately pulls out his wallet. )

LC: Shit I’m sold, I’ll buy 5.

Dominguez: Well Woogie this is nice and all but I’ve got the EAW Board viewing party to attend, so I’ll be off.

(Before Andy Dominguez couldn’t even turn around, Spanish music can be heard from the distanc. as TLA is shown enjoying himself around five flashy Vegas strip models wearing TINY bikinis only enough to cover their genitals and areolas. TLA grinds around while smoking a big fat cuban cigar in his mouth and holding a bottle of Henny. He spots Andy Dominguez as he walks, who remains frozen at what is being presented in front of him. )

TLA: Andy mi familia! You look like you have seen the EL DIABLO. Loosen up, esè, I ain’t won my match on Night 1 but we in Vegas homie, and what happens in Vegas STAYS in Vegas Cabron. Why don’t you loosen up that tie of yours and enjoy the Pantera Sexual train! *Vamanos* mi chicas.

Vegas Models: Si, papi.

(The women laugh together, as TLA continues on his way across the backstage area. )

Dominguez: I can’t believe that guy’s my second cousin…..

TLA: You can bring your guest as well! All aboard to the Poon Palace! CHOO-CHOO!

( The crowd reacts with cheers as two of the latina models surround Woogieman and Lethal Consequences and have them walk off with TLA. )

Dominguez: *to himself* You know what, maybe I’m going to the wrong party…. hey hold your horses ladies, wait up! I’m coming too!

( Dominguez chases after the models to follow TLA to the poon palace, and the segment comes to an end. )

(The competitors of the 24/7 Battle Royal are all inside of the ring as Aaron Fitzpatrick is standing ringside)

(DING! DING! DING!)

Aaron Fitzpatrick: The following match is a 24-man Battle Royal for the EAW 24/7 Contract! The only way to win is to toss your opponent over the ropes! The last elitist standing is the winner of the 2018 EAW 24/7 Contract that they can exchange for a title shot for any EAW championship!

(DING! DING! DING!)

Pierre McGuinness: The ref calls for the bell and this 24/7 Contract Battle Royal is well underway! All 24 competitors waste no time going for each other’s throats! Liam Archer starts brawling with Jack Ripley! Ryan Wilson suckers Garrison Cooper with a SUPER KICK! In the opening seconds! THREE OF EMPIRE’S OWN MALI EVANS, TYLER WOLFE, AND LAYLA LOCKHART INSTINCTIVELY TEAM UP AND GO AFTER THE MEMBERS OF CONSPIRACY SWITCHBLADE!

Deadprez: This action is hard to follow brotha! We have Van Banks and Maxmius Grier start wailing on each other! Maximus pushes Banks in the corner, unleashing a series of sick clinched knee strikes to the gut! The Core Brothers – Marco & Rico – is double teaming Shane Gates, wailing him down with overhand strikes to the back! Reza grabs Rico from behind and whips Him to the ropes! FLYING CLOTHESLINE ON THE REBOUND!

Pierre: Tetsuya Misawa just blocked several forearm strikes from Viktor Jackson who switches gears with a low dropkick! Follow-up double stomp to the chest! James Ranger and Sunami Tayo meet in the middle of the ring…their eyes are DEAD SET ON EACH OTHER! Ranger pushes Sunami! Tayo returns the favor! The men are now trading fisticuffs! Sunmai ducks a wild swing! HE COUNTERS WITH A NORTHERN LIGHTS SUPLEX!

Deadprez: Oliver Qu- uh I mean Carpenter Munrowe is delivering swift vigilante justice to Dan Henderson is with a series of wild shots to the jaw! OUCH!

Pierre: “Picture Perfect” Mark Michaels is gauging the situation and seems to have found a comfortable spot for himself in the corner! That might be a smart strategy – find a calm in the storm! Wait Xavier Arnold, the young technician has his eyes on Michaels! Mark is taking several steps back, his hands up in defense! It seems like he’s trying to make some kind offer with Xavier, but the young man’s not buying it! He’s closing in on Michaels! I hear once he gets his hands on you- HUNTER BROYLES JUST GOT THROWN INTO XAVIER ARNOLD COURTESY OF TYLER WOLFE!

Tyler: (off mic) I told you I was coming for that ass you misogynist pig!

Pierre: The Wolfe holds on to the ropes, stomping on Arnold with unrelenting rage! Xavier rolls under the ropes and lands to the outside in an attempt to get some breathing room! Tyler slides under the ropes and follows suit! According to the over the top rules, they’re still legal! The two are brawling outside as the outside referees are trying to get the competitors back in the ring!

Deadprez: This is nuts man! I knew this was going to be crazy! Dan Henderson has switched partners after fighting off Carpenter and now finds himself face-to-face with Sunami Tayo! I have to say, he’s a heavy favorite to win this in my eyes! Both men lock-up! Dan seems to have the upperhand- wait! Toe kick to the gut by Tayo! With a wild grin, he pushes Dan underneath him and LIFTS! What strength for the big man and…THE PERSIAN BOMB SENDS HENDERSON OUT OF RING!

Aaron Fitzpatrick: Dan Henderson has been eliminated!

Deadprez: Tayo seems pleased with himself as he rubs his chest with glee! Uh..okay bro, but you have 23 other people to deal with!

Pierre: I have to say, it’s going to be tough taking down the Persian monster who stands at a near seven foot even! Meanwhile it seems Liam Archer and Jack Ripley found a corner to continue their never-ending battle! Jack has the upperhand, knocking Liam in a seated position! He’s now stomping a mudhole through the chest of Archer! I have to wonder ‘Prez – what possessed him to interfere in the Unified Tag Team match yesterday?

Deadprez: Well he attacked all three teams, but yet helped Cameron Ella Ava and Sheriff DEDEDE secure the victory! Who knows what could be going through this man’s head at the moment!

Pierre: Well I guess we’ll find out soon enough! Meanwhile Xavier has secured a solid offense on Tyler and rolls her back into the ring! He slides in the ring and starts applying a grounded hammerlock- SOCCER KICK TO THE FACE BY LAYLA LOCKHART! She picks up Tyler, who nods! They give each other a fist pump and start giving it to Xavier Arnold with a flurry of stomps! Meanwhile their fellow Empire member Mali Evans has been separated from the brawl and finds herself face to face with Van Banks, who laid Maxmius out with a roundhouse kick earlier! Mali goes for the head with a series of elbow strikes, but it has no effect on the sinister Van Banks! He’s cracking his knuckles and WHOA! THAT HEADBUTT CAME OUT OF NOWHERE! I THINK MALI MAY BE UNCONSCIOUS!

Deadprez: If anything, she’s surely stunned! Tyler and Layla sees what happens and attempts to go to her rescue- TRIPLE SUPERKICK BY ALL THREE MEMBERS OF CONSPIRACY SWITCHBLADE! Hunter Broyles! Mox Walker! Rebel Saine! They stand above Tyler and Layla, seemingly satisfied with themselves! DOUBLE DROPKICKS BY RICO AND MARCO CORE! HUNTER BROYLES AND MOX WALKER GO FLYING OUT OF THE RING! Rebel Saine backs away, wondering what just- DUAL SUPERKICKS FROM THE CORE BROTHERS AND REBEL SAINE IS KNOCKED OUT OF THE RING! ALL THREE MEMBERS OF CONSPIRACY SWITCHBLADE IS OUT!!!

Aaron Fitzpatrick: Hunter Broyles, Mox Walker, and Rebel Saine have been eliminated!

Pierre: I don’t believe my eyes, in just mere seconds an entire three man team has been eliminated! Before the match, you and I discussed how these tag teams would play a factor in this match, and now the Core Brothers is the only team we have left! They did say that they didn’t want to fight the women of Empire, which infuriated the likes of Tyler Wolfe whose known to fight in intergender matches!

Deadprez: Well regardless if what they said was offensive or not, we know one thing for sure: Chivalry’s not dead-

Pierre: VAN BANKS JUST TOSSED MALI EVANS OUT OF THE RING!

Aaron Fitzpatrick: Mali Evans has been eliminated!

Deadprez: Spoke too soon.

Pierre: Van Banks threw Evans like she was some kind of rag doll! This is a man who looks like he’s playing no games! The white knight Core Brothers charge at him with double clothesline- BACK BODY DROP OVER THE ROPES! BOTH RICO AND MARCO LAND ON THE APRON! Van Banks doesn’t see them! SPRINGBOARD DROPKICKS TO THE BACK OF VAN BANKS BY THE CORE BROTHERS!

Deadprez: Things are heating up in the ring! Liam Archer has seized the upper hand on Jack Ripley! What a mean backbreaker! Ripley’s holding his lower back! Liam jumps on top, unleashing forearm after forearm to the side of the head! Garrison Cooper catches Ryan Wilson with a discus clothesline! Tyler and Layla gather their bearings- XAVIER ARNOLD WITH A DOUBLE DDT TO BOTH LADIES! Maximus Grier stands up up, trying to shake off the wear and tear of this battle royal! Wait! Shane Gates from out of nowhere! He lifts Maximus out of the ring!! Grier has fallen to the outside!!

Aaron Fitzpatrick: Maximus Grier has been eliminated!

Deadprez: Shane Gates seems very pleased with himself! He turns around- Rico Core has him by the wrist! He whips him- TOTAL ELIMINATION BY THE CORE BROTHERS! Rico and Marco give each other a high five!

Rico: GLAH!

Marco: SSKRRRT!

Pierre: Despite whatever that means, The leg sweep/spinning wheel kick combination has Shane Gates floored! Meanwhile Tetsuya Misawa and Reza Kordestani are going blow for blow, kick for kick! Tetsuya ducks under the spinning heel kick and applies a sleeper hold! Hey, this is a battle royal not a- COBRA CLUTCH SUPLEX BY MISAWA!

Deadprez: Viktor Jackson is trying to get James Ranger out of the ring from the corner! Ranger is doing his best to stay in this match! He manages to kick Viktor away! DIVING CLOTHESLINE FROM THE MIDDLE ROPE BY RANGER! He’s in safer waters for the time being!

Pierre: Tayo now has his hands on Carpenter! He has Munrowe on his knees, clubbing him in the back! Meanwhile Xavier Arnold has Mark Michaels twisted up like a pretzel- BOOT TO THE FACE BY TYLER WOLFE! She’s relentless! Mark Michaels tires to thank her, but she just flipped him the bird and CATCHES HIM WITH A SURPRISE SUPERKICK! Layla is still collecting herself from the mat! She gets to her feet- LIAM ARCHER IS KNOCKED INTO HER VIA JACK RIPLEY! Ripley makes a gun gesture to both opponents!

Jack: (off mic) Pew! Pew!

Pierre: LIAM FLOATS TOO! LAYLA FLOATS TOO! JACK RIPLEY HITS TWO LIGHTNING QUICK SUPERKICKS TO THE KNEELING ARCHER AND LOCKHART!

Deadprez: While Ripley is dealing with Archer, Reza takes advantage and throws Layla out of the ring!

Aaron Fitzpatrick: Layla Lockhart has been eliminated!

Deadprez: I doubt Tyler Wolfe realizes what happened to her temporary ally or that she’s the only woman left from Empire! She’s too busy engaged in a lock-up with Xavier Arnold!

Pierre: The Core Brothers are now occupied with Van Banks! Inverted atomic drop by Rico! He gets down on all fours- POETRY IN MOTION BY MARCO AND VAN BANKS IS KNOCKED OUT OF THE RING!

Aaron Fitzpatrick: Van Banks has been eliminated!

Pierre: What phenomenal teamwork by The Core Brothers! I wouldn’t be surprised if Marco or Rico takes this! While they look for a new target, you can see the ring is beginning to clear up a bit!

Deadprez: that’s true, Pierre! We can see Shane Gates is engaged with Reza Kordestani! EAT DEFEAT TO THE FACE OF REZA! Kordestani is stunned on the canvas- SHINING WIZARD BY GATES!

Pierre: This might be it for Reza Kordestani! Gates is trying to get Kordestani to the nearest corner! Tetsuya Misawa – who was countered by Reza earlier – is getting to his feet- COLOGNE CONQUEROR BICYCLE KICK BY XAVIER ARNOLD! Tetsuya Misawa is knocked out of the ring!

Aaron Fitzpatrick: Tetsuya Misawa has been eliminated!

Pierre: The German technician falls to a knee, exhausted from his back and forth with Tyler Wolfe, who’s leaning against the turnbuckle, catching her breath! On the opposite end, James Ranger almost has Viktor Jackson over the top turnbuckle! Jackson’s not budging! He refuses to be eliminated! Liam Archer comes over with the assist and PUSHES JACKSON OVER THE EDGE!

Aaron Fitzpatrick: Viktor Jackson has been eliminated!

Deadprez: Liam Archer wastes no time trying to get James Ranger over the ropes! James is struggling and is pushed through the ropes onto the apron! Archer pulls him back on over the third rope! POINT BLANK! LIAM ARCHER HITS THE HAMMERLOCK DDT! JAMES RANGER LANDS SQUARELY ON HIS HEAD!

Pierre: Sunami Tayo is still working over Carpenter Munrowe with clubbing blows and stomps to the back! It looks like he saw what Liam Archer just did and wants to match him! Tayo throws Carpenter onto the top rope- PERSIAN DDT! Tayo gets to his feet, and starts rubbing his chest at Liam!? Is this some kind of taunt?

Liam: (off mic) F–k off.

Deadprez: V-TRIGGER TO THE CHIN OF SUNAMI TAYO AND THE BIG MAN GOES DOWN! As for Carpenter Munrowe and James Ranger, they don’t look like they’re getting up anytime soon! Xavier Arnold has a boot to Tyler Wolfe’s throat in the corner! She’s trying to break free, but she’s losing energy fast! A vicious European uppercut from Arnold knocks Wolfe into a seated position. Xavier moves a couple of paces back…RUNNING KNEE TO THE FACE! Xavier seems to be in control of this for the time being!

Pierre: Meanwhile- huh? Mark Michaels have rolled out from under the ropes! Is he taking a break!? He needs to get back into the ring right now! Don’t you try to shush me Mark Michaels! I’m commentating the match! Oh god, he’s coming over here now!

(Mark Michaels takes a headset and sits down next to Pierre and Deadprez)

Mark Michaels: Why do you hate me?

Pierre: I don’t hate you Michaels I’m trying to co-

Mark: No, you do! You’ve had it in for me for the longest time! Here I am utilizing some superior ring generalship and here you are insulting my actions! Are you jealous of me? It’s it because I have more followers than-

Deadprez: V-TRIGGER!!!!

(Deadprez and Pierre leap out of the way as Liam Archer catches Mark Michaels in the face with a flying bicycle knee! Michaels is knocked out of his chair and Liam Archer wastes no time dragging him back into the ring)

Pierre: See! This is why you can’t keep your eye off the prize in situations like this!

Deadprez: He does have more followers than you though.

Pierre: That’s not- whatever! Let’s focus on this match here! Jack Ripley and Ryan Wilson are going back and forth, trading fists and kicks! Ryan Wilson backflips to avoid a sweep from Ripley who ducks under a surprise jumping roundhouse! Jack jumps back- YOU’LL FLOAT TOO!

Jack Ripley: Pachoo!

Deadprez: Wilson ducks a spinning heel kick from Ripley!

Deadprez: Wilson has escaped the jaws of defeat and goes in between Tyler Wolfe and Xavier Arnold who are brawling back and forth! They stop to look at Wilson and turned back to Jack- DOUBLE BIG BOOTS FROM XAVIER ARNOLD AND TYLER WOLFE! For a brief moment these two enemies were- aw forget it, they’re going back at it!

Pierre: The Core Brothers resume their tag team tactics on Shane Gates! Marco flips him over with a snapmare! Rico hits the ropes! Shane escapes to avoid the basement dropkick! PELE KICK TO MARCO! Marco is down! Shane ducks under the clothesline from Rico! DEAD MAN!! DEAD MAN!! HE HIT HIS SIGNATURE INVERTED SITOUT SIDE POWERSLAM! Great awareness from Gates!

Deadprez: Meanwhile Reza Kordestani has James Ranger in his sights! Chopbock to the back of the legs! Reza hammert throws Ranger to the corner! The impact forces The Black Mamba off of his feet! MOOONEEEY BAAAALLLL! Reza scores gold with that running double knee strike!

Pierre: Ryan Wilson out of nowhere! The stunner has knocked Carpenter Munrowe out of the ring!

Ryan Wilson: (yells) YOU FAILED THIS CITY!

Aaron Fitzpatrick: Carpenter Munrowe has been eliminated!

Deadprez: Ryan Wilson with the surprise stunner! Reminds me of Revy with her Recoil! Wilson takes it upon himself to pick up where Carpenter left off by continuing the assault on Sunami Tayo!

Pierre: The herd is beginning to thin out a bit as we see Xavier Arnold and Tyler Wolfe resume their epic encounter! Thrust kick to the gut by Wolfe! She starts bending back the arm of Xavier, manipulating his joints! She puts one foot to the back of his leg to force him to a bended knee! Xavier slips out- ENZUIGIRI BY ARNOLD! Wolfe was rocked by the sudden counter!

Deadprez: Arnold is just as skilled as Tyler in the art of grappling! I’m sure the kid knows a way out of any situation!

Aaron Fitzpatrick: The last man standing and YOUR WINNER of the Pain for Pride Festival 24/7 Battle Royal…JACK! RIPLEY!

Pierre: He did it! He beat the odds and won the battle royal! He now has the opportunity to cash in on an any EAW title he chooses!

Deadprez: Jack Ripley is the last man standing out of 24 elitists! Ripley is back on top of the world! He is truly back on high roller status!!

(The ref helps Jack Ripley from his feet and is given the 24/7 Battle Royal contract. Jack walks to the corner and raises the contract high in the air)

( “High” by Sir Sly starts playing in the background for the television audience. We cut over to the Showdown commentary booth where Pierre McGuire and Deadprez are both standing. )

Pierre: Talk about an eventful Pain for Pride for one Jack Ripley, but switching gears here ladies and gentlemen; the Pain for Pride Festival experience has been incredible these last few days, and we want to take the time out to thank some of our wonderful sponsors who helped make this responsible!

Deadprez: Yo thats cool and all but let’s not forget the hottest non-wrestling attractions, because the musical festival has been fiye as well Pierre! There’s been so many great performances, hot acts, monster DJs. I’m excited to see my girl Lana Del Ray kill the who joint tonight. Speaking of which the other night I got a chance to sneak outta the afterparty and go see the Migos perform! You ain’t gonna believe who they had on stage with em!

( We get a flashback to Pain for Pride Festival Night 1, and we see Migos on stage performing their song “Narcos” with former EAW Tag Team Champion and 2013 Young Lions Cup winner, Venom! Venom is on stage with a microphone of his own in his hand, wearing a coyboy hat and a bottle of corona in his other hand — he is clearly intoxicated. )

Offset: TRAPPIN LIKE THE NARCO

Venom: NARCO!

Offset: GOT DOPE LIKE PABLO, CUT THROAT LIKE PABLO

Venom: PABLO!

Offset: CHOP TREES WIT THE DRACO

Venom: DRACO!

Offset: ON DA NAWF GOT DIEGO

Venom: DIEGO!

Offset: SAY “HASTA LUEGO”

Venom: LUEGO!

Offset: WE BE IN WRAPPIN KILOS, SNUB NOSE WITH POTATOES. STRAIGHT OUT DA JUNGLE!

Venom: YAYAYAYAYA!

( Migos continue performing, and Venom jumps around dancing like a drunk lunatic before dives off the stage into the crowd for a crowd surf — but everyone in the crowd moves out of the way causing Venom to faceplant on the floor. )

( We return to Pierre and Deadprez standing by. )

Pierre: I hear Meek Mill is going to be a surprise guest tonight! Now that one I’m personally looking forward to!

Deadprez: What your old white ass know about Meek Mill Pierre?

Pierre: Ha, you’ll be surprised partner. Nevertheless coming up next is what could possibly be one of the most consequential matches in the HISTORY of Pain for Pride.

“They become apart of you…”

(The camera cuts to black as the echoes of Theron’s promo at Battle Without Honor or Humanity plays.)

“I didn’t want to do this. I told David. I told Jack; I had no interest in getting involved in their business against this company – but, as I thought about it… I thought about it and saw that I had no choice in the matter.”

(The camera cuts to the Grand Rampage match as the clock counts down to reveal the final entrant. The voices of those in attendance are heard as they count down.)

“5… 4… 3… 2… 1…”

“Buzz.”

(The camera cuts to black as only to voice of Chrissy Costanza can be heard as she continues to sing.)

“Every time you bleed for reaching greatness…”

“Relentless you survive.”

(The camera cuts to shot of the thousands in attendance shooting to their feet.)

“Stew: It’s not… IT IS!”

Nick Angel: C… M… BANKS!!!

(The crowd erupts as the camera cuts to a shot of Ronn Banks standing on the stage soaking in every moment of his return to EAW before cutting to later in the match and more importantly…)

“THERON BACK TO HIS FEET, STEPPING BACK INTO THE… OH NO!! WAIT!! BANKS WITH A DROPKICK!! AND THERON’S GONE!! HE’S GONE!! CM BANKS HAS ELIMINATED THERON NIKOLAS!!”

(The camera cuts to a dejected Theron Nikolas who sits outside the ring before cutting to The High Rollerz storming the ring and eliminating Ronn Banks before cutting to a shot looking down from the stage as the three stare down Ronn Banks who recovers at the bottom of the ramp.)

(“Legends Never Die” kicks into the chorus as the video cuts between shots of Ronn Banks and Theron Nikolas throughout the weeks past Grand Rampage; Theron laying Banks out at Revolt 2, Ronn counting three as Rex McAllister defeats Theron to retain the EAW World Championship and Banks calling for the bell after Theron kicks out at Wrath of the Dragon simultaneously with the three count.)

(Suddenly the song stops and the video cuts to both Banks and Theron standing in the ring as Banks speaks.)

“Banks: You have all the factors that are needed to become one of the biggest names in the entirety of this business. You forced the world to take notice of you at Pain for Pride. You set the world on fire at Dia Del Diablo. You put on a performance of a lifetime at both Road to Redemption and won the King of Elite tournament…”

(The camera cuts to shots of Theron falling short of capturing the EAW World Championship at Dia Del Diablo, Territorial Invasion and Road to Redemption, and winning the King of Elite tournament at King of Elite.)

“But, instead of using those performances to drive you forward… you let them eat away at you. You let them break you down and now we’re left with this…”

“A waste of a man.”

“You want a solution. I got one. Ronn Banks against Theron Nikolas at Pain for Pride.”

“My career against yours.”

(The video cuts to a shot of Theron and Banks standing face to face.)

“Theron: Deal.”

(The video ends with both Banks and Theron standing nose to nose as Chrissy Costanza sings one last line.)

“Legends Never Die…”

(The camera cuts back to the arena as…)

Aaron Fitzpatrick: Ladies and Gentlemen, this next contest is scheduled for ONE FALL!!… WITH THE LOSER BEING FORCED TO RETIRE FROM IN RING COMPETITION!! …AND I HAVE JUST BEEN INFORMED BY ORDER OF MR. DEDEDE – JACK RIPLEY HAS BEEN BANNED FROM RINGSIDE!!!

Deadprez: IT’S TIME, PIERRE! THE LAST TIME THAT WE’RE EVER GOING TO HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO SEE RONN BANKS COMPETE INSIDE THAT SQUARED CIRCLE!

(The lights throughout the stadium slowly shut off around the stadium until it’s completely shrouded in darkness. The stadium quiets down into complete silence as a spotlight shines down to down to the stage revealing The Amity Affliction’s Joel Birch standing with a microphone in hand before he begins to scream the chorus of their new song; no instruments play, just his voice echoes around the stadium)

“I CAN BE YOUR DOOMSDAY!”
“I CAN BE YOUR WORST EVER NIGHTMARE!”
“I CAN BE YOUR DOOMSDAY!”
“I CAN BE YOUR WORST EVER NIGHTMARE!”

(“Ivy” by The Amity Affliction hits as a spotlight shines down to the center of the stage as a throne slowly rises with Theron Nikolas slouched back in it; the King of Elite crown rests comfortably on his head. Theron slowly rises from his throne and stands on the stage looking out at the thousands upon thousands in attendance as the lights shoot back on revealing The Amity Affliction playing live. Theron slowly begins making his way down to the ring.)

Aaron Fitzpatrick: Introducing first from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, weighing in tonight at TWO HUNDRED AND TEN POUNDS!!!… HE IS THE 2018 KING OF ELITE!!!!!… THERON NIIIIIIKKOOOOOLAAAASSS!!!!

Deadprez: You can call me biased, Pierre, but this man should be walking into Pain for Pride as a World Champion. A man that has been forced to run through obstacle after obstacle; forced to watch as he was pushed aside and watch as someone who never should have been Champion was handed the championship because someone in power simply wanted to get his dick wet! All of it; every moment of the last year has lead to this moment. The moment where he puts his career on the line against the creator of this entire company.

Pierre: I can’t deny that Theron has been hard done by in the eyes of some, but I can’t condone the mans actions over the last few months. A kid that once had the world sitting in the palm of his hand and instead of grasping onto everything he was working towards –

Deadprez: Don’t, Pierre! Do not dare! Do not try your hardest to somehow put this man in a bad light! Tonight he rectifies everything he’s been forced to go through! It’s unfortunate that it has to happen at the expense of Ronn Banks – but, someone has to pay the dear, dear price of this company’s actions! The benefit of it all – we may be about to see a match for the absolute ages! A man that will undoubtedly go down as one of the greatest of all time – against a man that has the potential to go down as the absolute best.

(Theron enters the ring, making his way across the ring and makes his way up onto the middle turnbuckles. He looks out at the sea of fans as the camera zooms out and pyro fires from the top of the stadium. He jumps back down to the canvas and sits back in the corner as The Amity Affliction finishes their performance.)

Deadprez: Tonight the KING cements his place in EAW history.

(“Shock The World” by Lloyd Banks hits as Ronn Banks slowly makes his way through the curtain and out onto the stage. He holds a sledgehammer in his right hand, holding it by the bottom of the handle and allowing the head of the sledgehammer drag along the stage. He hands next to Theron’s throne which still sits in the middle of the stage and lifts up the sledgehammer, staring at it with an almost emotionless gaze. Ronn suddenly smashed the sledgehammer into the back of the throne, snapping off the backrest which flies and slides down the ramp. Ronn drops the sledgehammer and starts walking down the ramp and to the ring.)

Aaron Fitzpatrick: Introducing his opponent from Newark, New Jersey, weighing in tonight at TWO HUNDRED AND TWENTY POUNDS!!!!… HE IS THE SHOWDOWN GENERAL MANAGER!!!!… HE IS… RONN BAAAAAAAANNNNNKKSSSS!!!!!

Deadprez: How dare he! How DARE the Showdown General Manager destroy that Throne!

Pierre: It may be symbolic. The crown is the most valuable thing that Theron possesses; tonight there’s a major possibility that he may lose more than just that. Tonight there’s a major possibility that Ronn takes EVERYTHING away from the King of Elite. There’s a possibility that Ronn destroys the career of Theron, just like he did that throne. It reminds you of Pain 4 Pride, Deadprez. That night ended with Ronn ending the career of Mr. DEDEDE.

Deadprez: Theron has proven to be someone that steps up to moments like this, Pierre.

Pierre: But, this is a situation so much greater than anything Theron has been in before. 24/7 was great last year, but this… THIS is so much bigger! He is no longer the young upstart that catches the world by surprise. He’s now the man that has entire world on his shoulders. Ronn has been matches like this so many times in the past. There’s rarely a match involving Ronn that doesn’t feel this big. This is the environment that someone like Ronn thrives; the environment where someone like Ronn finds a way to push himself further than anyone believes is possible.

(Ronn enters the ring as Theron reaches up and pulls himself back up to his feet with the help of the top rope. Both Ronn and Theron come face to face, but the referee quickly gets between the two. Both men back into their respective corners as the referee calls for the bell.)

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Pierre: Ladies and Gentlemen, that bell signals the beginning of this BLOCKBUSTER match at the biggest show this business has to offer! You can see in the eyes of Theron Nikolas how focused he is tonight; the stage does not get grander than Pain for Pride, and this match means more to him than any other he’s had in the past. Theron Nikolas NEEDS to win this match tonight, in his mind, solidify his place in EAW; to prove that he is as good as the man says he is. Banks on the other hand has the opportunity to prove that he is still one of the best names this business has ever seen, and I have no doubts that with what I expect out of these two tonight – there will be no doubt about either man.. This isn’t about Championships; this is about pride. This is about both men leaving EVERYTHING that they possibly can in that ring to prove that they were the better man tonight. Both putting their careers on the line to finally end what has been brewing for months between these two. Neither man has moved; both standing in their respective corners, the atmosphere here tonight has been nothing short of incredible. Both men slowly making their way out of their corners, coming eye to eye, nose to nose. They’re both muttering away at each other, we have no idea what they’re saying, but I couldn’t imagine that it’s too pretty for the children in the audience to hear, ladies and gentlemen. Theron Nikolas taking a step back… and extends his hand. Theron trying to get into the head of the CREATOR of EAW. Banks using his boot to push Theron’s hand away, which only seems to bring a smile to the face of the King of Elite. Both men taking a step away and slowly begin to circle the ring, these two are finally ready to get this thing started.

Deadprez: Are you ready, Pierre, because… HERE WE GO! The two locking up and Banks takes the early advantage with a side headlock. Theron Nikolas pushes Banks into the ropes and picks up enough momentum to push Banks away; Banks sent across the ring, hitting the ropes on the opposite side of the ring and rebounds back with a shoulder block! Banks doesn’t look to waste any time, hitting the ropes and Theron Nikolas rolls onto his stomach, forcing Banks to jump over the top. Banks hits the ropes again as Theron shoots back to his feet and leaps over the top of the former World Champion with a leapfrog. Banks picking up a ton of momentum as he hits the ropes a third time – AND RUNS STRAIGHT INTO A SUPERKICK! NO, BANKS JUST CATCHES HIMSELF ON THE TOP ROPE! With the momentum that Banks had gathered, that kick to the head could have been absolutely devastating early! You can see in the eyes of Banks that he knows that; Theron doesn’t look like he’s in the same mindset that he’s been in before. He’s more focused than he has ever been before. Both men are adapt to wrestling these long style of matches, really pacing themselves out throughout the contest, and it looks like that may be the plan of Theron tonight; he knows that it’s not going to be an easy task tonight and if he doesn’t work his way into this contest that he will be easy pickings for Banks later on. The two locking up again, and this time Theron is able to gain the advantage, switching behind the Showdown General Manager. Theron trying to take Banks down to the canvas, but Banks uses his leg to block; he can’t allow Theron to gain that ground leverage.

Pierre: Banks with a stiff elbow to the side of the head of Theron, and fires back with another! Theron looks a little stunned, but his grip still remains around the waist his opponent; Banks able to break the grip of Theron and completes the standing switch. Banks is successfully able to take Theron down to the canvas with the takedown; Theron’s able to quickly fight his way into a seated position, but Banks transitions into the rear chinlock and uses his bodyweight to bring Theron down chest first onto the canvas. The blood flow being cut off to the brain of Theron Nikolas; Theron knows that he needs to to get out of this predicament quickly, or it will have dire consequences on the outcome of this match later on, if not now. Theron fighting back to a knee as Banks applies even more pressure. Theron getting back to his feet and is able to reposition himself and powers Banks up into the air! Back suplex! Banks’ able to land on his feet and swings for a wild clothesline! Theron ducking underneath as Banks hits the ropes! Theron tries to send Banks overhead with the back body drop, but he counters with a sunset flip! Theron’s able to block it – AND LEAPS INTO THE AIR – STANDING DOUBLE FOOTSTOMP!

Deadprez: Theron shoots back to his feet, but Banks catches him with a spinning back kick to the midsection! Theron drops down to a knee and Banks follows it up with a scissors stomp to the back of the head! ROLLING ELBOW! Theron falls back into the ropes, but they just push him back towards Banks! A left from Banks! A right! Spinning back fist – AND FINISHES WITH A ROUNDHOUSE TO THE SIDE OF THE HEAD! Theron drops down to the canvas and rolls straight out the ring; he’s on his feet, but he’s definitely stunned – AND BANKS GIVES HIM NO CHANCE TO RECOVER, SHOOTING THROUGH THE ROPES AND CONNECTING WITH A SUICIDE DIVE! THERON SENT CRASHING BACK INTO THE BARRICADE, BUT BANKS ISN’T FINISHED JUST YET! Banks rolling Theron straight back into the ring and climbs back up onto the apron! Banks stalks as Theron pushes himself back to his feet AS BANKS SPRINGBOARDS OFF THE TOP ROPE! NO! THERON SHOOTS FORWARD AND CUTS HIM OFF! BANKS CAUGHT ON THE SHOULDERS OF THERON IN THAT FIREMAN’S CARRY POSITION! THERON CHARGES TOWARDS THE CORNER – BUT BANKS SLIPS OFF THE SHOULDERS OF THERON AND PUSHES HIM TOWARDS THE CORNER! BANKS BURSTS FORWARD, BUT THERON CUTS HIM OFF WITH A SIDE KICK TO THE STOMACH! THERON LEAPS UP ONTO THE MIDDLE ROPE AND BACK OVER BANKS, TAKING HIM DOWN WITH A SUNSET FLIP! THERON DOESN’T HOLD THE COVER – INSTEAD POWERING BANKS UP ONTO HIS SHOULDERS! TURNBUCKLE POWERBOMB! THERON CHARGING FORWARD AND SENDS BANKS CRASHING BACK SPINE FIRST INTO THE CORNER!

Pierre: These exchanges have been incredible; neither man truly being able to gain full control in the match. Banks stumbles forward and Theron scoops him up onto his shoulders! USHIGOROSHI! FIREMAN’S CARRY NECKBREAKER CONNECTS! THERON SHOOTS INTO THE FIRST COVER OF THIS CONTEST!

ONE!!!… KICKOUT!!

Pierre: WOW! Banks kicks out at one!

Deadprez: Banks trying to sit up, but Theron immediately locks in that chinlock! Theron intentions are clear now; he has Banks where he wants him, slow things right down and conserve your own energy while also wearing down his opponent. Banks needs to find a way back to his feet, but the King of Elite maintains his leverage. Banks able to fight his way to a knee! Banks fires with a shot to the midsection! Banks fires again! Banks is able to transition his body behind Theron! Back Suplex! No! Theron flips back and manages to land on his feet! Banks turns around – Theron with a jumping knee!

Deadprez: THERON KICKS OUT JUST AFTER TWO!!

Pierre: And it doesn’t look like Banks is surprised in the slightest. Banks wastes no time getting back to his feet and stalks Theron. Theron slowly pushing his way up to his hands and knees – before rolling under the bottom rope and onto the apron. Theron still with plenty of wherewithal, but that elbow definitely knocked all the air out of his lungs.

There is absolutely no doubt that exhaustion is starting to set in. Banks is up to a knee as Theron grabs onto the ropes and begins to drag himself back up.

(“I Hope You Suffer” by AFI hits as Theron rolls off the unmoved Ronn Banks as there’s a HUGE roar of
boos echo throughout the stadium.)

Aaron Fitzpatrick: THE WINNER OF THIS MATCH…. THERON NIIIIIKKKKOOOOLLLLLAAAASSSS!!!!!

Deadprez: HE DID IT!! THE KING OF ELITE HAS DONE IT!! A FULL YEAR OF FIGHTING; A FULL YEAR OF BLOOD AND SWEAT SHED IN THE MIDDLE OF THAT RING HAS BROUGHT US TO THIS MOMENT!!!

(The camera shows Deadprez pulling out a bottle of Champagne, popping the cork and celebrating.)

Pierre: You’re unbelievable…

(Theron gets back to his feet and is met by Mr. DEDEDE. The two embrace with a hug as boos continue to reign down.)

Pierre: I just can’t believe it. I don’t want to believe it.

(Jack Ripley slides into the ring and embraces both in the ring; the three stand over the still downed Ronn Banks.)

Pierre: They were in on it all along…

Deadprez: Mark the day down, Pierre! This may be the biggest moment in EAW history!

(The three begin to make their leave, paying no attention to anyone in attendance as “I Hope You Suffer” continues to blast through the speaker before the camera fades elsewhere.)

(Camera pans backstage to where Eve is standing wearing a beautiful black dress before she begins to speak)

Eve: Ladies and Gentleman! Fresh off his grueling, intense, and high-risk ladder match affair for the National Elite Championship. Please welcome the PRINCE OF PHENOMENAL!!

(POP steps into view bandaged up around his arm but still has the National Elite Championship strapped around his shoulder as the crowd cheers and POP has a grin on his face)

Eve: POP, It’s not question that you are in absolute pain. You have managed to come away still with the National Elite Championship and the world wants to know where do you go from here?

POP: The Heart Break Boy, if there’s one thing I always knew about him. Even in our days of Project EGO, winning championships, having gold was his main obsession. He was gold obsessed and that made him put on the type of performance he did in our match. And if I’ve taken away anything, I’ve taken away that I’m not content with just the REVOLT Middleweight Championship, sure as hell not content with the National Elite Championship, I want more. And I will get more, I will not rest with this. I want to be the World Champion once again.

Eve: So with the upcoming EAW draft do you have a preference of where you want to go?

POP: Doesn’t matter, whoever is holding the top championship is in argument with me for being the top champion of whatever brand I’m on because I am the top champion in this company and if nobody believes it until I take what is viewed as the top tier championship then that is what I will do. I will take the championship and truly prove that not only am I phenomenal but I am the REVOLT! Like I prove it every single night, no matter where I am.

Eve: Thanks for your time POP.

(POP walks off as camera pans elsewhere)

(A montage of the events leading up to the Undisputed Women’s World Championship match is shown. The ESPN announcement of Revolt’s merger with EAW; Sienna’s Jades various victories in Revolt and EAW with the Freeweight Championship; Cloud cashing in the Iconic Cup to win the EAW Women’s World Championship at Grad Rampage; Matsuda’s successful defenses against Jael Rosario and Madison Kaline at Terminus; Stephanie Matsuda and Sienna Jade crossing paths; The arrival of Kendra Sheamez, who announces her intention to take the EAW Women’s Championship from Matsuda; Various encounters between Cloud and the Jaded Hearts; the final press conference before Pain for Pride)

(The arena darkens as slight muffles coming from the crowd is heard. Suddenly, flashing white lights are shown as ‘Sweet Leaf’ by Black Sabbath begins to play.)

“…ALRIGHT NOW.”

“WON’T YOU LISTEN?”

“WHEN I FIRST MET YOU, DIDN’T REALIZE.”

“I CAN’T FORGET YOU, FOR YOUR SURPRISE.”

“YOU INTRODUCED ME, TO MY MIND.”

“AND LEFT ME WANTING, YOU AND YOUR KIND”

“OHHH YEAH!”

(Blue and purple pyrotechnics explode as Sienna Jade’s titantron plays on the screen but after a few couple of seconds, no one comes out.)

(From the roof of the arena, something resembling the size of a car is shown being lowered onto the top of the ramp…)

(A giant replica of the REVOLT! Freeweight Championship made out of metal is being lowered with the current Empire Tag Team Champion and only Freeweight champion Sienna Jade laying on top of it. Sienna, with a big smile on her face, is laying sideways as she rests her head on her hand and has the EAW Empire Tag Team title wrapped around her waist and the Freeweight title wrapped around her right thigh as her leg is at a 90 degree angle (think of HBB playgirl shoot, kids.))

(The mock belt finally lands at the top of the stage as Sienna slowly rises to her feet. She stands on top of the belt as she raises hers above her head with her two hands. At that moment, blue and white pyro’s explode all over the Las Vegas Motor Speedway arena. Sienna holds her pose and then jumps off of it. She blows a kiss to the mock title as she throws her over her shoulder. With a cocky look on her face she begins to strut down the ring paying no attention to the crowd. She slides underneath the ropes and hops on the nearest turnbuckle. Sienna unhooks her Tag Team title from her waist and raises both championships in the air.)

SG1: Ladies and gentlemen, the incomparable Sienna Jade of the Jaded Hearts.

(The arena turns completely dark for a moment. The titantron turns on, revealing an empty dark hallway shown upside down. The “Killmonger Theme” plays as a pair of footsteps is heard walking through the arena. As a figure walks past the camera, the angle slowly turns right side up. “Killmonger” slowly fades.)

‘CLOUDY SEASON BEGINS’

(As the lights turn on the stage is shown to be filled with fog. NY rappers Nas and Diddy emerge from the fog as “Not for Radio” plays. Stephanie Matsuda walks out, dressed in Killmonger/Gold Panther inspired ring gear. She has her signature bandanna wrapped around her mouth with the words ‘STAY WOKE’. The EAW Women’s World Championship is around her waist.)

‘Black Kemet gods (yeah), black Egyptian gods (let’s go)
Summoned from heaven, blessed, dressed in only Goyard
Homie go hard like Stone and Robert in a stolen car
Shoot the ballot box, no voter cards, they all are frauds
Senegal’s finest, minerals, diamonds
The Earth is cursed but I survive many climates’

(Stephanie Matsuda walks down the ramp, her eyes fixated on Sienna Jade and nothing else. She stops at the bottom of the ramp and put her gloved hands together to form the ‘C9’ symbol. Once she throws down her hands an explosion of pyro and fireworks erupt throughout the entire Las Vegas Motor Speedway)

‘Fear will make you reveal who you really are
Feel me God? Be solid, your foes hold you in ill regard
This ain’t knowledge, this is not intense
For honored men, women too
Us who can see the same thing, but have a different view (let’s go)’

(Stephanie climbs in the ring, and walks towards Sienna as the music slowly dies down. She unties her bandana and says two words)

Cloud: (off mic) Hey auntie.

Jasmine Peyton: Have we a special guest for tonight’s match…please welcome MICHAEL BUFFER!
SG1/Gia: !!!

(Legendary ring announcer Michael Buffer walks into the ring and takes the mic)

Michael Buffer: Thank you. Ladies and Gentlemen, the following is a championship unification match is scheduled for one fall and it is for the UNDISPUTED WOMEN’S WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP!!!

(Mr. Buffer pauses while the crowd loses their shit)

Michael Buffer: First! From Calgary Alberta, Canada and fighting out of San Diego, CA! She stands at 5 feet 7 inches and weighs 135 lbs! She is Revolt Pro Combats first and ONLY Freeweight Champion! She is also one-half of the EAW Empire Tag Team Champions! SIIEEEEEEEENAAAAA JAAADE!!!

(Sienna Jade raises both of her championships to Cloud’s face)

Michael: Her challenger! Fighting out of Brooklyn, NY! She stands at 5 feet 7 inches and weighs 132 lbs! She is the 2018 Iconic Cup Champion! She is the current EAW Women’s World Champion! “The Iconic War Queen” STEPHANIE! “CLOUD”! MATSUUUUUDAAAAAAAAA!

(Stephanie Matsuda raises her EAW Women’s Championship)

Michael Buffer: The following fight will be officiated by senior official Jesse Carlton!

(a couple of fans cheer)

Michael Buffer: Tonight we are going to witness the most anticipated match in the history of professional wrestling. For the Undisputed Women’s World Championship. Are you ready? Wrestling fans, are you rrrrrrrrrready? For the thousands in attendance. For the millions watching around the world. From the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, in Las Vegas, NV! LET’S GET REEEADYYYYY TO RUUUUUMBLEEEEEEEE!

(Stephanie and Sienna prepare themselves to go to war)

(DING! DING! DING!)

SG1: Here are we, Empire’s last world title match of the season! The main event of Pain for Pride Day 3! Revolt Freeweight Champion Sienna Jade vs EAW Women’s World Champion Stephanie Matsuda! One of these two will walk out of Las Vegas the first and only Undisputed Women’s World Champion!

Gia Cervantes: It’s a big fight feel as Cloud and Sienna circle around each other! We’re seeing something different from Sienna – there is no trash talk or eye rolling; she’s all business! They initiate a collar-and-elbow tie-up! Cloud seems to have the upperhand! She’s pushing Sienna backwards towards the mat! Jade’s flexibility is paying off, but her shoulders are touching the mat!

Ref: One!

SG1: Jade lifts her shoulders from the mat! Matsuda seems to have the power advantage, but Jade is forcing herself back up through sheer will! The fans are on their feet for this one! One of the most highly anticipated matches for Pain for Pride, and we are finally here!

Gia: You have to be impressed by the strength of Sienna Jade! She made it back to a standing position! Stephanie whips her to the ropes! Jades jumps over Cloud who goes low, Matsuda leapfrogs- JADE HOLDS ONTO THE ROPES, BARELY AVOIDING THE DROPKICK!

SG1: Cloud seems impressed by her opponent’s awareness! She’s offering Jade another test of strength! Surprisingly Sienna accepts and moves in closer with her hand out. Stephanie reaches out with her own hand- she catches the foot from the incoming kick! Sienna misses the enzuigiri attempt- THE SUDDEN DROPKICK HITS CLOUD SQUARE IN THE CHEST! Matsuda rolls back to her feet, shocked at Sienna’s quickness!

Gia: Sienna Jade is a woman full of surprises; despite her arrogance, she’s worked just as hard to get here as Stephanie. You can tell by the expression on Cloud’s face that it’s beginning to dawn on her that fighting Jade isn’t going to be a walk in the park.

SG1: The two champions lock-up once more! Sienna gets the wristlock! Cloud goes under, rolls along the mat, and counters into a hammerlock! Sienna immediately squats low in attempt to get catch Matsuda off-balance! Sienna slides under and pulls Cloud’s feet from underneath her! Wait- Matsuda has her legs around Sienna and takes her down with a headscissors! Jade arches her back in an attempt to escape, but Matsuda’s legs are wrapped too tight around her neck! Jade arches her back on more time and flips over, forcing Cloud to break the hold! Sienna grabs her wrist from behind for the ripcord- JADE PUSHES CLOUD AWAY! Matsuda squats low, and grins at her adversary! Jade must have sensed Cloud had the Last Surprise sling blade ready!

Gia: That’s the thing about the last surprise – you never see it coming! I wouldn’t put it pass Sienna if she scouted Cloud’s matches to see when and where she could expect the Last Surprise. Matsuda is attempting to bait Jade by slowly inching closer in a crouched stance. I feel like Cloud is enjoying how much of a challenge her opponent is at the moment!

SG1: She better hope that won’t be her downfall. Matsuda tries for the legs, but Sienna kicks her away! Cloud meets her with her hands, as if she’s trying to grab her feet! Matsuda has three submissions she can set up from this position: the rolling kneebar, her Straight Shooter figure-four sharpshooter, and the Blasian Sunrise. It looks like she’s testing the waters to see if it’s possible to secure an easy submission victory.

Gia: Sienna notices and backs away several feet. Matsuda stands and crosses her arms, shocked that Sienna doesn’t want to play her game-

SG1: WHAT SPEED! SIENNA SLIDES IN CLOSE AND SECURES A HEADLOCK BEFORE MATSUDA COULD COUNTER! JADE FLIPS OUT OF THE SAITO SUPLEX COUNTER AND HITS A FRONT DROPKICK TO THE BACK OF MATSUDA WHO SLIDES ON HER KNEES AND TURNS AROUND! SHE DUCKS THE SPINNING HEEL KICK! BRIDGING NORTHERN LIGHTS SUPLEX- WAIT! SIENNA’S FEET HITS THE MAT! JADE FORCES THE TURNOVER! CLOUD ROLLS OVER HER AND DEADLIFTS HER IN THE BACK TO BELLY POSITION! THE AIR RAID NECKBREAKER CONNECTS!

Gia: Dios mio! These counters and sequences that we’re witnessing! It’s as if they know each other inside and out!

SG1: Matsuda seems to have shifted the match in her favor though. She did say she was going to teach Sienna how to fight like a champion; and I must say that move she pulled out of her hat was a champion’s move if I ever saw one!

Gia: Cloud applies the chinlock as she takes a breather! The ref is checking on Sienna whose legs are flailing about in attempt to free herself! Cloud transition to a modified surfboard, pulling at her opponent’s arms with her knee pressed into her back! Sienna pushes herself up and tries to gounder! Cloud lets go- SIENNA WITH HER OWN BRIDGING NORTHERN LIGHTS! CLOUD’S FEET HIT THE MAT AS WELL! HOW ARE THEY ABLE TO DO THIS!? CLOUD DEADLIFTS SIENNA FROM HER POSITION AND HITS THE POWERSLAM!!! THE 100,000+ FANS ARE LOSING THEIR MINDS!

Crowd: THIS IS WRESTLING! (clap clap clap-clap-clap)

SG1: It looks like Cloud is immediately going for Blasian Sunrise, but Sienna rolls out of it! JUMPING DDT- CLOUD PUSHES HER AWAY! SHE DUCKS THE CLOTHESLINE! CLOUD TRIGGER!! SIENNA GETS CAUGHT IN THE CHIN AND INSTINCTIVELY ROLLS OUT OF THE RING! SHE’S FALLEN TO HER KNEES, HOLDING HER FACE!

Gia: It was a matter of time before one woman got the best of the other, though I feel Cloud didn’t get all of that bicycle knee! I think Sienna felt something coming and was already trying to avoid the move! Sienna starts pacing around ringside with Cloud watching her like a hawk! Before the ref could make the count, Sienna jumps on the apron!

Ref: One-

SG1: SLINGSHOT DDT! What an unexpected move from Sienna Jade! Even Cloud didn’t see it coming! Matsuda rolls around, holding her head! Sienna starts crawling towards her with a seductive look in her eyes!

Gia: Nothing good can come out of this…

SG1: Sienna hovers over Cloud and rakes the back! The ref shouts a warning at Sienna who slowly stands, taking glee in the pain she caused her opponent. Cloud rolls to the center of the ring, holding her back! Sienna skips once and runs forward- CLOUD EVADES THE SHINING WIZARD! SNAP DDT BY THE FREEWEIGHT CHAMPION!

Gia: That shining wizard was a set up!?

SG1: Notice how she stayed in place after Cloud evaded. It was like she expected Cloud to capitalize immediately! Jade applies the headlock lifts Cloud to her feet and starts hammering away with forearm smashes! Matsuda lifts her for a back suplex! Sienna flips out and ands on the apron! Cloud instinctively slides to the center of the ring!

Gia: Matsuda needs to figure out something quick because it seems like Sienna has her number!

SG1: Jade climbs to the apron and turns back to Cloud with a sly grin on her face. I don’t know what she’s planning, but Matsuda is on high alert-

Gia: RAW SIENNA!! Cloud shifts back- THE SPRINGBOARD DROPKICK CATCHES CLOUD IN THE LEGS! MATSUDA FALLS OVER GRABBING HER LEGS IN PAIN! WHAT JUST HAPPENED!? Sienna jumped to her feet and is laughing! It’s…like-

SG1: As if she intended to aim for the legs?

Gia: Yes! Did she pull out her finisher to modify its use for another purpose!?

SG1: I think Sienna just sent a message to Cloud: that she can hit her any place from anywhere with the Raw Sienna.

Gia: Well Cloud looks like her whole plan’s been taken apart! Sienna picks up her legs and SLAMS them to the mat! She has weaponized the Raw Sienna and it may cost Cloud the match! Jade stomps on the legs a few times and applies the camel clutch dead center in the ring!

SG1: For the first time in a long time we’re seeing Cloud struggle! Getting hit with that C-Trigger was a wakeup call for Sienna Jade! She knew she had to approach Cloud in a way nobody has before! Matsuda is struggling, trying to crawl her way to the ropes! Sienna won’t allow her to get close, but the upper body strength is proving to be greater than expected! Matsuda’s inching closer…and SHE GETS IT! Cloud makes it to the ropes!

Ref: One!
Two!
Three!
Four!

SG1: Sienna lets go of the the hold, giving her ref a dirty look as she gives Cloud some breathing space. Matsuda stumbles forward- DROPSAULT FROM SIENNA AND CLOUD IS KNOCKED TO THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING! Matsuda hits the floor hard! It Sienna rebounds from the ropes and charges forward- SUICIDE DIVE!! SIENNA GOES FLYING INTO MATSUDA! SIENNA SOMEHOW LANDING ON HER FEET Matsuda ‘s head the ground hard! She’s doing things exactly how Cloud would do them and somehow is coming out on the other side better than her opponent! Referee Jesse Carlton starts the count!

Ref: One!

Gia: Sienna looks under the ring, and PULLS OUT A TABLE!? The ref advises against this, but Sienna pays her no mind. As long as she doesn’t use it as a weapon, she should be fine! Sienna picks up the table and unfolds it a few feet from the ring! What the hell could be going through that dark mind of hers!?

Ref: Two!

SG1: Sienna strikes Cloud a couple of times before throwing her onto the table! Jade hops on the apron on the opposite end and runs for it- DOUBLE STOMP!!! SIENNA JADE JUST DOUBLE STOMPED STEPHANIE MATSUDA THROUGH THE TABLE!!! OH MY GOD! THE WAR QUEEN LOOKS DEAD! Hell, I wouldn’t surprised if she was!

(An instant replay of Sienna Jade stomping Cloud through the table is shown)

Gia: We’re witnessing a massacre! Sienna Jade has found a way to pierce through Cloud’s impenetrable shield and is now taking full advantage of the situation! Matsuda’s taking the kind of punishment that would keep most people down!

Ref: Three!

Gia: Sienna grabs Matsuda by the hair and drags her to the ring apron- JADE SMASHES MATSUDA’S FACE AGAINST THE APRON! I think I saw blood squirt in the air!

SG1: That’s definitely Matsuda’s! She’s holding her nosed, shocked at what’s happening! Sienna rolls her into the ring and slides in for the cover!

Ref: OOONEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
TWWWWWWWWOOOO!

SG1: Stephanie Matsuda kicks out!

Gia: Sienna may be controlling the match, but Cloud is proving that she’s tougher than her opponent thinks! Sienna slams her fist against the mat and starts climbing the nearest turnbuckle! She’s going to the high-rent district! Sienna Jade is about to leave Matsuda Starstruck! She turns her back to the War Queen! Cloud needs to snap out of it!

SG1: STARSTRUCK MOONSAULT!!!

Gia: WHAT!? YOU GOTTA BE KIDDING ME!

SG1: CLOUD JUMPED TO HER FEET AND CAUGHT SIENNA JADE IN HER AMS! HOW!? AFTER BEING PUT THROUGH A FREAKING TABLE! HER NOSE IS BLEEDING AND SHE CAN BARELY STAND! SHE’S DOWN TO A KNEE, BUT SHE MANAGED TO CATCH SIENNA JADE OVER HER SHOULDER! JADE’S TRYING TO SLIP OUT BUT CLOUD’S ALREADY IN MOTION! SHE TOSSES SIENNA IN HER ARMS! SIT-OUT POWERBOMB!!!! CLOUD HAS THE LEGS GRABBED!!

Ref: OOOOOOONEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!
TWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

Gia: SIENNA KICKS OUT!

SG1: What a sight! Through trial and tribulation; though blood and sweat The Iconic War Queen has managed to turn things around for herself! Both women are on their backs, exhausted from their ordeal! The entire Kinetic Cathedral is on their feet, cheering on their champion of choice!

Crowd: LET’S GO SI-EN-NA!

Crowd: MAT-SU-DA!

Gia: Both the Revolt Freeweight Champion and the Women’s World Champion are fighting to get to their feet! Cloud is the first to get to her feet! She’s leaning against the ropes, staring at her opponent! Sienna’s showing no signs of getting up! Matsuda slowly makes her way over to the nearest corner! What is she doing!? She managed to turn things around for herself!? Why is she going high-risk!?

SG1: It’s all about high reward Gia! It’s about winning the big one at Pain for Pride! It’s about taking things to the next level! That’s what Stephanie Matsuda plans on doing! She’s balancing herself on the top turnbuckle! She could secure her dreams of becoming Undisputed Women’s Champion right here and now!

Gia: I think Sienna is coming to…

SG1: That doesn’t seem to bother the woman formerly known as “Sky Princess!” She leaps from the top! C9!!! CLOUD 9!!!

Gia: SIENNA’S ON HER FEET-

SG1: OH MY GOD!!! WHAT WAS THAT!!!??

Gia: STEPHANIE MATSUDA TRANSITION INTO A DDT! SHE MODIFIED HER FINISHER TO BE A CORKSCREW SHOOTING STAR DDT! I NEVER SEEN ANYTHING LIKE THIS!!!

SG1: That gamble took a lot out of her, but it paid off! It looks like lights out for Sienna! Cloud makes the cover!

Ref: OONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
TWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOO!
TH-

Gia: SIENNA JADE GETS THE SHOULDER UP! HOW!? JUST..HOW!? IT WAS MODIFIED, BUT IT WAS STILL THE C9!! SIENNA JADE JUST KICKED OUT OF CLOUD’S FINISHER!!

SG1: Matsuda looks devastated! You can see the anger rising in her eyes! She grabs Sienna by the hair and tosses her out of the ring! Cloud slides out and makes her way to the commentary table! Matsuda! What do you-

Gia: Just get out of her way SG! She’s tearing off the cover and everything else! What does she have planned!?

Ref: One!

SG1: I don’t know, but she’s bracing the half-conscious body against the table! Cloud slowly makes her way back into the ring!

Ref: Two!

SG1: Cloud is gripping the ropes! Look at her eyes…I see fierce determination! What in the hell does she have planned!?

Gia: I don’t know, but there seems to be some kind of commotion behind us in the crowd…

SG1: Cloud gives the ropes a squeeze and springboards! FINAL HEAVEN-

???: SIENNA!

Gia: Someone just jumped in from the-

SG1: FINAL HEAVEN FOREARM CONNECTS AND CLOUD PUTS- THAT’S NOT SIENNA! IT’S KASSIDY HEART! SIENNA JADE’S TAG TEAM PARTNER AND ONE HALF OF THE NEW EMPIRE TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS! SHE PUSHED SIENNA OUT OF THE WAY AND TOOK THE HIT!!! CLOUD MATSUDA’S FIST PUT HER THROUGH THE TABLE!

Crowd: HOLY S–T! HOLY S–T! HOLY S–T!

Ref: One!

Gia: Cloud took a big part of the damage as well! She’s feeling it as she’s rolling around, moaning in pain! But look at Kassidy! She’s laid out! Sienna Jade is catching wind of what just happened! She’s screaming bloody murder! She jumps on top of Cloud unleashing her rage for attacking her best friend! Cloud has her hands up but it does nothing to contain the wrath of Sienna Jade! Cloud manages to push her off!

Ref: Two!

Gia: SIENNA JADE JUST SPEARED MATSUDA THROUGH THE BARRICADE!!! The fans are getting out of the way! This is carnage! This isn’t about fineese anymore! It’s about blood! It’s about vengeance! The impact barely had an effect on Sienna who has her hands around Cloud’s throat, choking the life out of her! Referee Jesse Carlton is yelling for Sienna and Cloud to come back inside the ring!

Sienna: YOU BLASIAN BITCH I’LL KILL YOU!!

Ref: Three! Come one Sienna! Take this back inside!

SG1: I don’t know how, but she was about to get through to Sienna who’s dragging Cloud’s near lifeless body towards the ring. I guess she realized that she won’t become Undisputed Champion if she keeps the fight out there! She rolls Matsuda’s body in the ring and goes for a pin!

Ref: OOOOOONEEEEEEEEEEEE!
TWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOO!
THHHRRRRRRRRRREEEEEEE-

Gia: CLOUDY KICKS OUT!!!!!

SG1: SOMEHOW, SOMEWAY CLOUD MATSUDA WAS ABLE TO KICK OUT AFTER BEING PUT THROUGH A BARRICADE BY AN ENRAGED SIENNA JADE!

Gia: The Revolt champion is literally kicking and screaming! She doesn’t know what else to do! Sienna grabs Cloud by the wrist and stands up from behind her. She’s about to prep for her signature ripcord rolling elbow! She pulls the wrist! WITCH’S HAMMER-

SG1: LAST SURPRISE!!! CLOUD OUT OF NOWHERE WITH THE SLING BLADE COUNTER! Earlier in the match Sienna was aware, but after what happened to Kassidy, Sienna’s too angry to think! She has to compose herself if she wants to walk out with both titles!

Gia: Both women seem like they’re running on empty! EMS workers are on their way down to check on Kassidy Heart! And…great. Kendra shamez is making her way down as well!

SG1: It doesn’t surprise me that Kendra wants to check on her investment! She took things too far with Matsuda to not allow herself to be part of this match in some way or form!

Gia: Cloud rolls to the corner and slowly gets to her feet. Sienna’s sitting in the corner! That’s not where she wants to be! Cloud races forward for the cannonball!

SG1: WHAT!? KENDRA SHAMEZ PULLS SIENNA OUT OF THE WAY! CLOUD USES THE ROPES TO FLIP OVER AND LAND ON THE APRON! She sees Kendra and Sienna holding each other! Jesse Carlton is telling Kendra to leave ringside! Kendra’s shaking her head while holding Sienna like her own child! Cloud gives the finger! SPRINGBOARD MOONSAULT!

Gia: CLOUD HITS KENDRA SHAMEZ- WHO PUSHES SIENNA OUT OF THE WAY! THE BENEFACTOR TOOK THE FALL FOR HER INVESTMENT! Cloud is back on her feet to a roaring crowd! Sienna grabs her from behind!

SG1: CLAPBACK!! SIENNA HIT THE GORY SPECIAL BACKBREAKER! Matsuda’s screaming in pain!

Ref: One!

SG1: Sienna barely has any energy left! I doubt Matsuda has anything left in the tank herself! She gets to her feet, wondering what else she has to do to end this match!

Ref: Two!

SG1: Sienna starts dragging Matsuda once more- MATSUDA WHIPS SIENNA INTO THE STAIRS! Cloud drops to her feet, her face flushed with pain and frustration!

Ref: Three!

Gia: Matsuda stumbles over to the apron, wondering how she’s going to end things! How will she end this war with Sienna Jade!? Cloud climbs the apron! Sienna climbs the apron as well! She’s so consumed with rage that I doubt she realizes how hurt she is! Cloud is staring at Sienna, shaking her head!

Ref: Four!

Gia: Sienna charges at Cloud- running knee lift! Cloud was almost knocked off the apron, but is still holding on to the ropes! Sienna continues her assault with a kick- Cloud catches her foot! She kicked Sienna in the guts!

Ref: Five!

Gia: Cloud pulls Sienna in and lifts! No dice! Sienna won’t budge! A vicious roundhouse knocks Cloud into the ring! Matsuda rolls along the mat! It’s Sienna’s turn to grip the ropes! Cloud is trying to get up! Cloud! Stay down! Sienna leaps!

SG1: RAW SIENNA!!! MATSUDA TURNS TO THE SIDE BUT GETS HIT IN THE SHOULDER! CLOUD GETS KNOCKED HALFWAY ACROSS THE RING! MATSUDA IS HOLDING HER SHOULDER, WINCING IN PAIN! Sienna hit Cloud’s shoulder on purpose! That weaponized Raw Sienna was right on target! She’s slowly breaking Matsuda down! Cloud crawls towards the ropes- FUJIWARA ARMBAR! SIENNA’S NOT LETTING UP! SHE’S ATTACKING THE WEAK ARM! SHE WANTS TO RIP IT FROM ITS SOCKET!

Gia: CLOUD IS TRYING TO MAKE IT TO THE ROPES BUT SIENNA TRYING TO KEEP HER IN PLACE! CLOUD IS IN AGONY! IF SHE DOESN’T MAKE IT OR TAP, SHE COULD LOSE HER ARM! MATSUDA’S INCHING CLOSER…CLOSER…SHE MAKES IT!

Ref: One!
Two!
Three!
Four!

SG1: Sienna lets go, pushing her foot in Cloud’s face!

Sienna: (yells) Piece of s–t!

Gia: Did she just spit on Cloud!? The crowd doesn’t seem to approve of her actions, but it doesn’t seem like Sienna cares. She looks over at us and sees that Kassidy and Kendra are being carried off by EMS. She looks a bit more focused now as she picks up Matsuda, dragging her to the center of the ring. Cloud’s having a hard time complying, so she whips her to the ropes!

SG1: SPRINGBOARD MOONSAULT OVER SIENNA! INVERTED DDT TO THE REVOLT CHAMPION! She calls that the Cloud Drive! Somehow, Stephanie Matsuda has the athleticism to pull off the impossible!

Gia: You can tell that it’s really affecting her body! The adrenaline may be helping her a bit, but I don’t know if Stephanie has much left! In fact, you could say the same thing about Sienna! Cloudis picking her up from behind! I think we know what we’re about to see! Sienna’s about to take a trip to Cloud City! Cloud applies the straight-jacket hold! Sienna’s doing her best to wigle free! Cloud is trying to keep the hold as tight as possible, but Sienna won’t stay in place! She starts elbowing Cloud’s bad arm and Matsuda is forced to jet go of the hold! Sienna pulls Cloud in! She’s taking the opportunity to end things now! She’s hooking the leg! Cloud has nowhere to go!!! R! D! G! SIENNA HAS THE BRIDGE!

Ref: OOOONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
TWWWWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOO!
THRRRRRRRRRREEEE-

Gia: HOW!? HOW DID STEPHANIE MATSUDA KICK OUT!!!!??

SG1: She kicked out of the RDG! She might be the first woman to ever do that!

(The commentary go silent as the entire Kinetic Cathedral go apes**t!)

Gia: Stephane looks…dead? Sienna Jade is looking at her like she seen a ghost! She held most of the offense for this match and somehow Cloud won’t stay down! Sienna is on top of Cloud, smacking her silly!

Sienna: WHY WON’T YOU DIE!? YOU (slap) WON’T (slap) YOU (slap) DIE!!!!??

SG1: Jade used just about every single move in her arsenal!

Gia: All except one…

SG1: Sienna rolls Cloud over! She’s going for the TEMPTRESS!!! She’s got the double underhook in place-

Gia: Matsuda!!! Matsuda’s fighting the Temptress!!! SIENNA’S TRYING TO LOCK THE CROSS FACE IN PLACE! IF SHE SUCCEEDS, IT’S OVER FOR CLOUD! MATSUDA’S TRYING TO WILL HERSELF UP!! SIENNA DOESN’T WANT TO LET GO!! CLOUD ABSOLUTELY REFUSES TO GIVE IN!!! SIENNA’S HANDS ARE ALMOST AROUND CLOUD’S HEAD!! BOTH WOMEN ARE FIGHTING FOR THE RIGHT TO BE CALLED UNDISPUTED! CLOUD IS PUSHING HERSELF UP! SHE’S TAPPING INTO HER HIDDEN RESERVES!!! SIENNA IS REFUSING TO LET GO! CLOUD IS GETTING UP! SOMEHOW WITH SIENNA JADE SHE’S GETTING UP!!!

SG1: This is…she has SIENNA ON HER SHOULDERS!! SHE HAS SIENNA ON HER SHOULDERS!!! JADE IS TRYING TO REACH FOR THE ROPES! CLOUD IS TRYING TO GRAB HER ARMS! MATSUDA STUMBLES TOWARDS THE END OF THE RING! SIENNA IS TRYING TO REACH FOR THE ROPES! THIS IS SHADES OF BLOODLETTER! THIS IS WHAT COST CLOUD THE WOMEN’S WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP!

Gia: SHE’S TRYING FOR THE ENDLESS WORLD- THE FINISHER THAT MADE HER SENSEI, IS MANAMI FAMOUS! BUT SIENNA’S NOT BUDGING! SHE’S ABOUT TO REACH THE ROPES!

SG1: CLOUD DROPS HER FROM HER SHOULDERS AND CATCHES HER IN A STRAIGHT JACKET HOLD!! CLOOOOUUDDDDD CITYYYYYYYYY!!! CLOUD CITY!!! MATSUDA HAS THE BRIDGE!!!

Ref/Crowd: OONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
TWWWWWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOO!
THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

(DING! DING! DING!)

(“Kill Jill (Remix)” by Archie & Sizzle plays as Stephanie Matsuda lets go, and collapses on the mat)

SG1: SHE DID IT! SHE DID IT! BAH GAWD SHE DID IT!

Jasmine Peyton: Your winner by pinfall and your NEW UNDISPUTED WOMEN’S WORLD CHAMPION….STEPHANIE! CLOUD! MATSUUUUUUDAAAAAAAAA!

Gia: S-she really did! She defeated Sienna Jade and won the Revolt Freeweight Championship! She has both belts!

SG1: After a year of trials and tribulations! A year of personal losses and heartbreak…Stephanie Matsuda has become the first ever Undisputed Women’s World Champion!

Gia: There’s confetti everywhere! The crowd is losing their minds! Hey look! Cloud’s fiancee Monica Vaughan is making her way from the audience! The Wild Boys too! Billy and Jimmy Wilde! They’re coming out to the ring!

(A tired Matsuda is helped up by Jesse Carlton who gives her both the Revolt Freeweight and the EAW Women’s Championship. Billy and Jimmy Wilde carry their sensei on their shoulders, while Monica looks on with a smile on her face. Tears fall from Cloud’s eyes as she looks up at the sky and mouth the words “thank you”.)

( The fireworks continue in the sky and we cut to Kawajai and Nick Angel at the commentators table )

Kawajai: WELCOME TO THE FINAL DAY OF PAIN FOR PRIDE!!! AND THIS CROWD HAS BEEN SO ELECTRIC AND EVERYTHING WE’VE SEEN THUS FAR IS NOTHING COMPARED TO WHAT WE HAVE LINED UP HERE TONIGHT!

Nick Angel: Kinetic Field! Las, Vegas! They have treated us great and I can’t even begin to explain how much fun it has been calling this event, it truly hurts my heart that this is all going to end! What a wonderful and beautiful experience Pain for Pride has been overall, but we aren’t done yet. The focal point of this show is to give you the best wrestling on the planet that only EAW can and let’s not waste anytime as we jump right back into the fire!

( http://media.discordapp.net/attachments/396155295174492172/456332208966336523/Imp-vs-Jamie.png )

( We get a recap of the Impact and Jamie O’Hara rivalry, which started at the Voltage Supershow: Brooklyn Heights when Impact made his return during Jamie’s match against Chris Elite, and screwed Jamie out of his 10 month long World Heavyweight Championship reign. We see the weeks of tension building up between Impact and Jamie, which leads to Fighting Spirit where the two of them fought to reclaim the WHC for themselves, but to no avail. )

( Following this in the recap, we see the two of them booked to team up, with Jamie offering an olive branch for one night to be able to withstand the Blicky Boyz, only for Impact to screw Jamie out of the tag team match by leveling him with an Evisceration. We then see Jamie O’Hara call Impact out the following week to challenge Imp to a match at Pain for Pride, only for Impact to decline the match when approached about it in an interview afterwards. In the main event of that evening, Jamie O’Hara would get payback from the week before by taking Impact out during his match against Malcolm Jones and help MJ get the victory. )

( The following week, when Impact announced he would “drop the anvil on Jamie’s head”, he offered the stipulation where the loser between the two would never be allowed to compete for a World Championship again in EAW. Jamie would come out and accept this proposal. The week following that, Jamie O’Hara offered Impact a “gift”, which turned out to be a replica belt of Heart Break Gal’s EAW Championship reign, saying that this would be the closest he ever gets to a world title again. Impact and Jamie would exchange blows and lay each other out, although Impact was the first to make it back to his feet. )

( At last, we reach the events that transpired the following week, where Jamie would be unavailable due to a personal family emergency, and Impact would cut a scathing promo on Jamie before invealing his own “gift of Impact” – Jamie’s stolen championship trophycase containing every accolade Jamie has ever accomplished in his wrestling career. Impact would then pull out a flamethrower and INCINERATE Jamie’s accolades, setting them all on fire and permanently damage Jamie’s most cherished posessions. We run through footage of their many brawls, and end off on the note of O’Hara promising to “bring Impact’s mausoleums to ruins”, as well as Impact promising to go after his woman when he’s finished destroying Jamie’s career. )

( RETURN TO KINETIC FIELD. )

( DING! DING! DING! )

Rebecca Sawyer: The following contest is scheduled for ONE FALL… and is under the stipulation that the loser of this match may never challenge for an EAW World Championship again!

( The lights burn out as “Kashmir” by Led Zeppelin plays throughout the Vegas Speedway, Jamie O’Hara emerges from the back slowly, he flips his black trenchcoat forward and eyes the ring with silent intensity. )

RA: Introducing first, from Melbourne, Australia weighing in at 5’11” 190 pounds, he is JAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAMMMMMMMMMMMMMIEEEEEEEEEEEEEE O’HAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!

Nick: Here comes the man who is coming off of a legendary championship reign, the Elitist who has been described as “once in a generation” due to his level of talent. And Kawa, Jamie O’Hara walks into this Pain for Pride 3-0 at this event, UNDEFEATED. The only other man to start their career with a 3-0 record at the grandest stage of them all??

Kawajai: His opponent tonight, Impact. But hat tricks aside, we learned last week on Voltage that on June 30th, 2018 Jamie O’Hara’s contract with EAW officially EXPIRES. We have no word on if or when he’ll be renewing his deal nor do we know what he’ll be paid, but in a lot of ways this match tonight could decide if we EVER see either of these men in an EAW ring again.

( Jamie O’Hara stands solemly in the center of the ring, and fireworks sound off from above the stadium as “Kashmir” continues to play and the Festival fans remain in awe of his presence. )

Kawajai: I’ll tell you this Nick, I’ve seen O’Hara compete time in and time out, never have I seen him look this focused before. This could be bigger than any of his World Title fights, what an astranomical way to kick off the final day of a Pain for Pride that will go down in wrestling lore!

( “Can I Live” by Jay-Z plays over the arena and white lights flash across the audience. )

( A massive roar of boos thunder down onto Impact who is dressed in red diamond-patterned long tights. He takes several steps down the ramp with his eyes closed, relishing the atmosphere that only Pain for Pride can bring before jolting his eyes open and locking them with Jamie O’Hara who stands in the center of the ring, unmoving. )

Rebecca Sawyer: And his opponent, from Seattle, Washington weighing in at 6’1″ 240 pounds, he is IMMMMMMMMMMMPAAAAAAAAAAAACCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Kawajai: Here he his, the pinnacle, the absolute measuring stick, you don’t get any better than this man right here who has been dominating competition ever since his EAW inception.

Nick: And with his greatness, comes a cold and calculated side, a side that he’ll need to put on display if he wants to beat Jamie O’Hara tonight, which is a feat very few have managed to do. You made an amazing point earlier Kawa, this man’s pride is on the line tonight, and he is an extremely pride driven individual. We just got finished with a career vs career match last night that has had the world talking ever since, it’s been the subject of international news; however in many ways this match tonight is also a career vs career match. Everything that identifies both of these men — being at the pinnacle — is on the line here AT KINETIC FIELD!

(DING! DING! DING!)

Nick: And God what an atmosphere it is! This is it, folks, this match has so much tension behind it and so much riding on it. Both of these renowned World Champions know what exactly is at stake. Impact and O’Hara are nose to nose, neither of them blinking, neither of them speaking. Impact looks one way and O’Hara the other, the crowd is buzzing, I don’t think one soul is seated here in Las Vegas.

Crowd: THIS IS AWESOME! THIS IS AWESOME! THIS IS AWESOME!

Kawajai: Just seeing these two men in the same ring at the same time is indeed awesome, it’s a matter of who blinks fir-

Nick: Impact just slapped the taste out of O’Hara’s mouth!

Impact: You think you’re going to take all of this away from me huh? Do you? ANSWER ME!

Jamie: You’re fucking right I am.

Kawajai: Jamie drives a thunderous forearm into Impact! He follows that up with a spinning backhand, he quickly grabs the leg of Impact and slings him to the side with a dragon screw leg whip! Impact holds his leg in pain and rolls out of the ring quickly! A smart veteran maneuver by Impact as the crowd rips into him with a chorus of boos. Impact tends to his leg on the outside but not for long! HEAD FIRST LOW-PE SUICIDA UNDER THE MIDDLE ROPE!

Nick: WHAT A COUNTER! A MID-AIR DROPKICK BY IMPACT JUST TAGGED JAMIE ON THE SKULL AS HE WAS FLYING THROUGH THE ROPES! Jamie crashed and burned into the barricade as a result! Picture perfect timing by Impact! Jamie holds his neck as Impact approaches him while trying to get any kinks he has out of his leg. He grabs O’Hara and lines him up against the barricade, he then whips a furious knife edge chop into the chest! And another! And aga–

Kawajai: This time Jamie catches the wrist of Impact and yanks his arm down violently over the top of the barricade! That looked painful at the very least! Jamie rolls Impact into the ring, but instead of sliding in after, he hops up on the apron and grips the top rope waiting for Impact to turn around which he does, Jamie springboards himself, twisting in mid-air and connects with a gorgeous looking slingblade! Down goes Impact! Jamie drops and hooks the leg!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

TWOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

Nick: Kickout by Impact! That’s not nearly enough to put him away! Jamie lifts Impact up by the chin and spikes a forearm into his face!

Kawajai: Impact ducks under this though and headbutts the back of Jamie’s head with noticeable force! Impact sprints towards the rope and springs back off of them, Jamie turns around and is greeted by a running double knee that knocks him flat on his back! Impact reaches his feet and looks around wildly, he suddenly sprints towards the middle rope and launches himself backward with what he calls the Flight Sights!

Nick: However Jamie manages to pull his knees together and Impact lands sternum first on both knees! Impact rolls around on the mat holding his chest as he crawls towards the turnbuckle to get himself up, meanwhile, Jamie is right back up to his feet, he bolts towards Impact and connects with a brutal corner high kne–

Kawajai: But Impact manages to launch O’Hara in the air behind him, to which Jamie lands cat-like on the top turnbuckle! Jamie turns around on the top turnbuckle pad and is met with a nasty sounding enziguiri that echoes loudly throughout the Motor Speedway! Impact propels himself up on the turnbuckle quickly and clasps his legs around the neck of Jamie – he heaves him off of the top rope with a magnificent frankensteiner! Jamie slams off the mat with a resounding thud! He fell from quite a height there! Impact quickly covers him!

ONEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!

TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

Nick: Not enough this time! Impact grits his teeth angrily and pulls Jamie up, he spins him around once and throws him like a discus through the middle rope and into the unforgiving ring post! Shoulder and steel are not that good of friends last time I checked! Jamie slowly crumbles out of the ring and so does Impact. Jamie steadily gets to his feet and is met with a front dropkick that–

Kawajai: You mean a swift jaw-jacking bicycle knee that knocks the spittle out of Impact! He falls to his knees! Jamie follows up with a firm shoot kick to the jaw! Impact falls to his side and onto the ground! Jamie grabs Impact and drives a strong knee into his stomach, he drags Impact to the announce table but Impact is throwing rapid-fire fists into the ribs of Jamie cause him to break free! He immediately grabs the head of Jamie and jams him face first into the announce desk!

Nick: However Jamie manages to block it using both of his hands, he slings a quick elbow into the chest of Impact who backs off, holding his chest! Jamie speeds towards Impact and connects with a bone-rattling shotgun kick! The referee is at the count of seven! Jamie looks up at the referee and realizes this, he quickly rolls in and out to break the count! Jamie walks right back to Impact who suddenly drops Jamie with a double leg takedown! He hooks his legs tightly and slings him headfirst into the announce desk as if he were a pendulum! He lifts him up yet again and slams him into the desk for the second time! Impact pulls Jamie up who is still holding his head and rolls him into the ring, however instead of sliding in after him, Impact slowly scales up the turnbuckle, crouching on the top, he waits patiently for Jamie to get up and he finally does!

Kawajai: Impact vaults himself high in the air and hammers Jamie right back down with a double ax handle! He plants a few boots to the sternum and shoulder area until he has Jamie sitting against the bottom turnbuckle! Impact backs up methodically and zeroes in on Jamie, he charges towards him and hits a pair of double NO! I take it back! Mafia Kick! Jamie just rose from the depths and cleaned Impact’s clock! Jamie quickly grabs the legs of Impact and twists him over onto his stomach and into a Texas Cloverleaf! He has the submission secured perfectly! Impact wails out in pain, he waves his hand frantically and tries to grab at the referee who moves backward, out of his reach! Is he going to tap?

Referee: What do you say Impact?

Impact: Fuck you!

Nick: Well that seemed straight and to the point! Impact grimaces and grabs at air, he’s trying to find something to pull himself towards the ropes! Jamie wrenches back as hard as he can! Impact squints in agony but starts to crawl on his forearms, inching his way ever so closer to the ropes! He reaches out with his hand and YES! He’s got the bottom rope!

Referee: Come on Jamie break the hold, one, two, three…

Kawajai: Jamie finally lets go of the hold, but the damage has already been done! Jamie reaches down and pulls up Impact, he bounces Impact’s head off of the turnbuckle. He then reels back and slices a knife edge chop across the chest of Impact and he follows that up with machine gun paced backhand chops in rapid succession until Impact’s chest is tomato red! Impact holds his chest as Jamie grabs his arm and whips him into the turnbuckle diagonal to their position. He storms towards Impact and is greeted by a pair of boots! Impact quickly lifts himself up on the second turnbuckle, he leaps at Jamie and plants him with a brilliant tornado DDT! Jamie’s head spikes up off the mat and he lands near the middle of the ring. Impact drops down and hooks the legs!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!

TWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!

Nick: No! Kickout!

Impact: Faster! Count faster dammit!

Kawajai: I don’t think the referee is phased at all by Impact’s commands and he can’t be, a match of this magnitude, he has to call it right down the middle! Impact goes back to work and lifts Jamie up from behind for a high angle back suplex!

Nick: However Jamie lands behind him though and clubs Impact in the back of the head with a discus forearm which sends Impact down on all fours. Jamie clasps his hands around the waist of Impact and launches him in the air for a high angle deadlift German suplex! Impact’s head bounces off of the mat! Jamie’s not done either! He hooks Impact’s waist again and connects with ANOTHER deadlift German suplex! Impact might be out here, Kawajai!

Kawajai: It certainly looks that way! Impact is flat on his face in a heap! Jamie glances down at Impact and pulls him up, he is indeed out on his feet, Nick! You’re right! Jamie scoops Impact up on his shoulders LOOK OUT! COOOUNTDOWWWWWWWN TOOOOOOOO MIDDDDDDDNIGHTTTTTTT!!!!!!

Nick: NOPE! Impact somehow lands on his feet! HE RUNS UP TO JAMIE! EVIIIIIIIIIISSSSSSSCERAAAAAAAAAAAAAATIONNNNNNNNN!!!!!!! NO! JAMIE CATCHES AND TRAPS HIS LEGS! HE’S TRYING TO PEEL HIM OFF THE MAT AND LOCK IN THE WALLS OF IMPACT!! HE’S GO–

Kawajai: INSIDE CRADLE! INSIDE CRADLE BY IMPACT! WHAT A COUNTER!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!

TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!

TH–

Nick: KICKOUT! THAT WAS A CLOSE ONE! A crafty veteran move by Impact there as both men reach to their feet! Step up enziguiri by Impact!

Kawajai: Jamie catches his leg! Dragon screw! That just sent Impact through the ropes and to the outside! Jamie gets up quickly and sprints towards the ropes, he leaps high in the air and up over the top rope! SOMERSAULT PLANCHA CRASHES DOWN ONTO IMPACT WHO JUST GOT TO HIS FEET! Jamie immediately rises to his feet with a sense of calmness! Impact is down in a heap! Jamie grabs Impact and whips him into the steel steps!

Nick: HOWEVER IT’S REVERSED AND JAMIE LEAPS OVER THE STEPS ATHLETICALLY! IMPACT GUNS TOWARDS THE STEEL STEPS AND USES THEM AS A LAUNCHING PAD TO NAIL JAMIE WITH A FLYING FOREARM!!!!! Impact slings a knife edge chop across the chest and follows that up with a European uppercut along the barricade! What’s Impact doing here?! He just reached into the front row and grabbed a fan’s smartphone?

Impact to Jamie: Say cheese you son of a bitch!

Kawajai: Impact smiles arrogantly and snaps a selfie with Jamie who was clearly out of it! Impact throws the phone into the crowd and forearms the face of Jam–

Nick: BICYCLE KNEE! ANOTHER ONE BY JAMIE TO IMPACT AND HE IS NONE TO PLEASED! He rolls Impact into the ring as he follows suit! He speeds towards Impact WHO COUNTERS WITH A TILT-A-WHIRL BACKBREAKER! What a great move! Jamie is out! Impact covers!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!

TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!

Kawajai: SHOULDER UP! Jamie got the shoulder up! Impact looks around in disbelief! He scowls at Jamie and then lifts him high up on his shoulders! He could be going for a powerbomb here but no! Jamie drives a few fists and flips back onto his feet! He rams a knee into the mid-section of Impact and lifts him high in the air! SINGLE UNDERHOOK BRAINBUSTER!!!!!!!!!! THAT JUST SCRAMBLED IMPACT’S BRAINS FOR SURE! NOW JAMIE WITH THE COVER!!!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!

TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!

THRRRRRRRRR—

Nick: AND NOW IMPACT WITH THE SHOULDER UP! Somehow! I don’t believe it! And neither does Jamie who gets to his feet! He lifts Impact up by the hair and throws him towards the ropes! Impact comes back with a spinning heel kick! Down goes Jamie! Impact looks around and runs back at Jamie who tries to get to his feet but is planted back down with a one-handed bulldog! Jamie rolls over onto his back as Impact connects with a lionsault and this time Jamie doesn’t get his knees in the way! Impact with the pin!!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!

TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

Kawajai: NO! Jamie pops his shoulder up yet again! Impact looks up towards the open sky and wipes the sweat from his face. He lifts Jamie up slowly and plants a boot to his abdomen! He backs up and gets a running start! Knee lift! NO! Jamie raises his head out of the way, Impact turns around! SUPERKICK BY JAMI– BUT IMPACT CATCHES HIS FOOT! JAMIE SWINGS HIS FOOT AROUND! ENZIGURI! BUT IMPACT DUCKS THAT TOO! NOW JAMIE IS ON HIS STOMACH AND IMPACT TRANSITIONS SO THAT HE LOCKS HIM IN THE WALLS OF IMPACT! RIGHT SMACK DAB IN THE CENTER OF THE RING! IMPACT IS YANKING BACK AS HARD AS HE CAN! WITH EVERYTHING HE’S GOT! JAMIE IS SHAKING HIS HEAD VIOLENTLY, REFUSING TO GIVE IN!

Impact: TAP DAMNIT!! ASK HIM, REF!

Referee: What do you say, Jamie?

Jamie: NOOOOOOOOOOO!

Nick: Impact lowers his knee on the head of Jamie, he’s going to pull his legs from his waist at this point! Jamie is gritting his teeth as he crawls towards the ropes!

Impact: ASK HIM AGAIN!

Referee: He said no!

Impact: ASK HIM AGAIN THEN YOU IDIOT!

Referee: Jamie, what’s it going to be?

Jamie: FUCK OFF CUNT!

Kawajai: SUDDENLY WITH A SURGE OF ENERGY JAMIE GRABS THE ROPES! BUT IMPACT DRAGS HIM BACK INTO THE MIDDLE AGAIN! Time has to be ticking! Jamie can only take so much! Impact is screaming at Jamie to tap but Jamie is far too determined! He bites his lip and churns forward! SLOWLY BUT SURELY HE’S GETTING CLOSER TO THE ROPES! HE’S ALMOST THERE, IMPACT IS SHAKING HIS HEAD NO! HE NEEDS JAMIE TO TAP HERE! BUT HE WON’T BECAUSE HE’S GOT THE ROPES!!!!!!

Referee: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR!

Nick: Impact finally lets go and drops to his knees, visibly exhausted! He slaps the mat with his fist and grabs Jamie bringing him up, he Irish whips him into the ropes and clotheslines Jamie, wait, no, Jamie ducks and comes back as Impact turns around! DISCUS LARIAT BY JAMIE! THE SHEER FORCE SENDS IMPACT OVER BACKWARDS AND HE LANDS IN A SITTING POSITION… OH MY GOD LOOK OUT! INNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN EXCEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEELLLLLLLLLLLLLLLSSSSSSSSSSIIIIIIIIIIIISSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

THRRRR–

Kawajai: KICKOUTTTTT!! IMPACT JUST BARELY KICKED OUT!!!!!!!! Jamie sits up and sighs to himself, he gets up to his feet and grabs Impact who reaches up and rakes Jamie in the eyes! He then grabs Jamie by the arm and launches him into the corner, Impact balls his fists and rushes towards Jamie who gets up a pair of boots to the maw of Impact, Jamie lifts himself up to the top rope and stands atop it but Impact suddenly lunges into the ropes and that causes Jamie to fall onto his nether region we’ll just say, a smart move by Impact knowing what the situation was and where he was located! Impact climbs up the turnbuckle slowly, Jamie is in some serious pain atop the turnbuckle as Impact drives a headbutt into Jamie for good measure.. I wonder what he..

Nick: FLLLLLLLLLLLLASSSSSSSSSSHHHHHHHHHHPOOOOOOOINTTTTTTTTT!!!!!!!!!!!!!! A DEVASTATING THIRD ROPE PILEDRIVER! HE RARELY USES THAT MOVE! OH MY GOD JAMIE’S NECK MIGHT BE BROKEN!

Impact: THAT WAS THREE!!!!! MOTHERFUCKER!!!!!!!

Referee: He got the shoulder up Impact, get your hands off me!

Kawajai: Impact is trembling, he walks over to Jamie and squeezes his cheeks and talks some trash. Now a Knife edge chop to Jamie. Jamie replies with a chop of his own!

Impact: Idiot! (Knife edge chop)

Jamie: Cunt! (Knife edge chop)

Impact: Asshole! (Knife edge chop)

JAMIE IS WIDE-EYED; HE’S ROCKING BACK AND FORTH IN PLACE, WITH SWEAT POURING DOWN HIS FACE!! IMPACT SHOWING THAT HE STILL HAS HEART OF A CHAMPION AND WILL NOT QUIT! Jamie gets up on wobbly legs and brings Impact up! He drives a forearm into the face! Impact’s head jerks back as he comes back with yet another knife edge chop! Jamie’s chest is bleeding! His chest is completely raw at this point! Jamie drills another forearm into the jaw of Impact sending him into the ropes! Jamie runs towards impact but is back body dropped to the outside!! Impact drops to his knees and slides out of the ring. He grabs Jamie and throws him onto the Voltage announce table, you better back up Kawajai!

Kawajai: No problem, Impact climbs on the announce table and grabs the legs of Jamie or at least he tries too but Jamie kicks him in the stomach! Impact keels over… Jamie backs up and starts running at Impact! WHAT THE HELL IS HE DOING? OHHHHHHHH NOOOOOOO! OHHHHHHHH MY GODDDDDDDDDDDDDDD!!!!!!!!!!! YOU’RE FUCKED CUNT! A MODIFIED RUNNING CANADIAN DESTROYER FROM THE EDGE OF THE VOLTAGE TABLE OVER ONTO AND THROUGH THE SHOWDOWN TABLE ALL IN ONE MOTION!!!!!!!!!

Crowd: HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT!

Nick: Impact might be dead, he just might be dead! Jamie realizes the referee is at the count of seven. He uses all of his strength to grab the deadweight of Impact off of the shattered remains of the table! He rolls him into the ring as the ref reaches nine! He slides in quickly after almost at the count at ten and covers Impact! THIS HAS GOT TO DO IT!!!!!!!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!

THAT HAD TO BE ON INSTINCT, IT JUST HAD TO BE, THERE’S NO OTHER EXPLANATION, ANY OTHER SUPERSTAR WOULD BE DEAD IN THE WATER! Jamie is looking high in the sky, he knows that Impact can’t last much longer!

Nick: Who knows the way this match is going! I don’t want this to end! Jamie gets up to his feet, pulling Impact who is clutching at Jamie’s body, he doesn’t have any fight left in him, does he? He’s on fumes at this point… Jamie looks down at him, almost empathically, he grabs Impact’s wrist and applies a quick wrist lock, YOU KNOW WHAT IS COMING! HE SPINS IMPACT AROUNDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD AND BAMMMMMMMMMM!!!!!!!! KIIIIIIIIIIINGSERATION?! THE EVISCERATION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WHAT A COUNTER!!!!!!!!!! IMPACT STILL LIVES!

Nick: NO KAWAJAI. I THINK HE HAS SOMETHING BETTER IN MIND, IT’S HIGH-RISK HIGH-REWARD POTENTIALLY FOR JAMIE HERE AS HE REACHES THE TOP ROPE WITH IMPACT DRAPED ON HIS SHOULDERS IN A FIREMAN’S CARRY POSITION! I THINK WE ALL KNOW WHAT COMES NEXT!!!!!!!

IMPACT KICKS HIS HANDS AWAY!

Impact: STAY DOWN!

Kawajai: Jamie shakes his head violently and walks on his knees trying to get at Impact but he’s just too exhausted! He looks up at Impact defiantly and flips him the double bird!!! Impact scowls at Jamie and rushes forward… EVISSSSSSSCERAAAAAAAAAAATIONNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN FOR THE THIRD TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! JAMIE’S BODY FLIES TWO FEET UP IN THE AIR AND BACK DOWN AS IMPACT DROPS AND HOOKS THE LEG!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!

TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!

(DING! DING! DING!)

( “Can I Live” By Jay-Z replays throughout the speedway as Impact reaches his feet, looking down at Jamie with a half smirk on his face. )

Nick: I’m.. I’m at a loss for words! I can’t believe it! Jamie O’Hara cannot challenge for an EAW World Championship for the rest of his career, but I feel like any other championship doesn’t do him justice.. what have we witnessed here?!

Kawajai: We witnessed two of the greatest to ever lace them up fight to the near death. We witnessed why EAW is heralded as the greatest company in the world. We have witnessed a spectacle!

( Kawajai stands up and begins a round of applause as Nick stands up and follows suit. A camera shot of the thousands in attendance joined in solidarity applauding both men. Jamie O’Hara lays there in sheer exhaustion, too winded to even respond or know what to think of the loss. Jamie is in a daze, unfamiliar with defeat at this caliber of a stage, while Impact is backing up the ramp with a big grin on his face. )

( The camera cuts backstage to Corporate HRDO in his well-furnished, Pain for Pride Festival themed office. He is wearing his usual corporate suit and is on his phone pacing around. )

HRDO: God damn it man I had my suspicions to why Theron was so quietly confident tonight walking into a match with everything on the line… but, I never expected this. I can’t believe it. I don’t want to believe it, Ryan.

HRDO: You haven’t answered any of our messages, the board is TERRIFIED of the consequences behind your actions. But on a personal level Ryan, why?

HRDO: Everything that you and Ronn helped each other to create. Everything that WE created, Ryan. You throw all of that away, for what – a man that’s done nothing but try to tear every piece of it down? Someone who has constantly tried to break down everything that you helped create?

( HRDO grits his teeth as Theron and Ripley walk into the camera’s frame with Theron twirling the King of Elite crown on his index finger. )

( HRDO shuts off his phone, leaves it on his desk and gets into Theron’s face. )

HRDO: You’re lucky I don’t fire you right here, right now after what the two of you did.

Theron: Perhaps on anyone else that world work, but in this scenario I believe it’s painfully apparent that you don’t hold the power.

( Theron and Jack both laugh as HRDO clenches both of his fists. )

Theron: I don’t think you want to do something you’re going to regret. Ronn thought he held all the answers, but didn’t see he was playing a game of chess where he was always three moves behind. You want a reason for his actions; why he shattered the dreams of you, Ronn and everyone else that prayed for my downfall… you don’t deserve one. Not yet, anyway. Instead, look forward at what we’ve accomplished. We’ve gone from men that fought against those with power in this company – to RULING it.

( HRDO stands there seething in rage. Theron and Ripley walk out of his office laughing, and HRDO mutters to himself before banging on his desk, picking up the phone, and calling DDD yet again. )

HRDO’s phone: The voicemail box you are trying to reach is full and cannot receive any more messag–

( HRDO throws his phone against the wall. We see Ashten Cross enter the room wearing shades, a button down t-shirt and some slacks holding a Starbucks latte. )

Ashten Cross: Hey man you’re needed back in Kinetic Field to hold down the fort over in gorilla.

HRDO: No. I’m getting the fuck out of here. I’m flying back to New Jersey and getting myself away from this whole environment. I’m gonna need you to hold down the fort over there since fucking DDD’s fallen off the face of the earth.

Ashten: Alrighty then. But if I go a little brazy on the pyro don’t be mad. :mjgrin:

( Ashten walks away and HRDO grabs all of his belongings before shutting off the lights and slamming the door of the room shut. )

( RETURN TO KINETIC FIELD. )

(“If Ya Smell” by Adam Massare hits as Woogieman steps out onto the stage. He soaks in the crowd briefly as he then sets his focus on the ring and walks his way down. He climbs into the ring stands up in the corner, looking around and experiencing what’s happening around him.)

(“Timebomb (Train, Train Intro)” by Blackfoot and Rancid hits as Shaker Jones hits the stage. He walks out in what appears to be a plain black vest, but he turns round to reveal the Pain for Pride Festival logo and a patch for each rock band in attendance at the festival! He turns back around. The Big Bhaker Bhampionship strapped tight around his waist. He makes his way to the ring and climbs in, removing the title and holding it up for the fans to see before removing his vest and taking his spot in the corner.)

(Stephie Love steps up to center frame of the camera)

Stephie: The following contest is scheduled for one fall!

Crowd: ONE FALL!!

Stephie: And it is for the Big Bhaker Bhampionship!!!!!

Crowd: YAAAAAAAAYYYYY!!!!

Stephie: Introducing first, the challenger… from Jacksonville, Florida… Standing at six feet, five inches tall… weighing in at 260 pounds… THEEEEEEE WOOOOOGIIIEEEEEMMAAAANNNN!!!!!!!

(Woogieman throws his fist into the air and the crowd cheers loudly for him)

Stephie: And his opponent… from Inglis, Manitoba, Canada… standing at six feet tall… weighing in at 250 pounds… he is the Big Bhaker Bhampion… The Punk Rock Country Boy… SHAAAAAKEERRRRRRR JOOOOOOOONNEESSS!!!!!

(Shaker raises the title up and scream along with the crowd, then turns to hold the title up towards Woogieman before giving it to the referee)

(Referee holds the title up and hands it to the timekeeper before calling for the start of the match)

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Stew-O: And we are underway! Stew-O and Talib Bari here to bring you this Dynasty exclusive matchup at Pain for Pride XI! Partner, what do you make of this matchup?

Bari: These two men have no love lost for one another. A storied history, but many thought they were moving forward when they started to tag together at Culture Crisis. But the loss was more than enough strain to break that bond and now they are at each other once again, looking to settle this score once and for all! This is no joke. This isn’t some stupid Judy Bagwell on a Forklift match or something. No sir. This is the Big Bhaker Bhampionship!

Stew: These two men, just staring each other down right now, both know what the other is capable of very well. Neither wants to make the first move. Shaker needs to stay mindful and tactical here, Woogieman has a severe size advantage.

Bari: Both of them are slowly circling the ring, inching closer towards each other. Closer… closer… SHAKER JUST CHARGED HIM! Front waistlock applied! Shaker squats down and deadlifts the larger man onto his shoulder and drives him down with an elevated powerslam!

Stew: Now Shaker climbs on top and tries to rain down shots to the head and rib cage! Each time Woogie changes his guard, Shaker changes his target! He’s just trying to wear down the big man as quickly and early as possible! Don’t forget that Shaker blames Woogieman for losing their opportunity to compete for the Unified Tag Team Titles after he was pinned by the Dragon Slayers at Culture Crisis!

Bari: Shaker nearly saved that match but came just short of breaking the pinfall! But now look! He’s pulling Woogieman up to his feet! Picks him up onto his shoulders! LOOKING FOR THE SHAKERMAKER!

Stew: But Woogieman with elbows to the side of the head! Slips down and back to his feet… BUT HE GRABS AHOLD OF SHAKERS HEAD ON THE WAY DOWN! BIG DDT!

Bari: Shaker is laid out! Woogie hits the ropes! Big body splash from Woogieman! Uh oh… LOOK AT WOOGIE!! He’s backed into the corner! He’s primed and in position! Shaker is slowly climbing to his feet! Does he see Woogie? Woogie charges…

Stew: SPEAR CONNECTS! Woogie with the cover!!!

ONNNNNEEEE!!!

TWWWW—

Shaker kicks out at one and a half! But Woogie is back on offense with a rear headlock applied! That forearm directly across Shaker’s face!

Bari: Shaker has to get to a vertical base! No other way out of this! And… eh? Woogie is pulling Shaker up to his feet? AH! SPINEBUSTER!!!

Stew: Avoided by Shaker! Shaker used his smaller frame to his advantage and pushed himself off of Woogie, now both men stand and stare at one another. They know what this is about. They know the prize they covet. The gold title belt sitting right next to us.

Bari: Woogie gonna be the one to close the gap. He moves his way towards Shaker and we get a collar/elbow tie up. What’s this? SHAKER JONES JUST JUMPED UP AND PULLED OUT A BODY SCISSORS ON WOOGIE! That is not something you see from Shaker!

Stew: This is Pain for Pride my friend! You gotta pull out all of the stops! Woogie is still standing with the body scissors applied but Shaker now has head control. He’s trying to sink in a guillotine choke on the larger Woogie. Woogie is fading… down to a knee… both knees… Woogie has to find something!

Bari: He’s down! And from bottom this puts Shaker in the favorable position to leverage that choke! He’s wrenching it tight as he can!

Stew: But Woogie rolls Shaker onto his shoulders! Ref counts the pin!

ONNNEEEE!!!!!

TWWWWOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

TH—

Shaker breaks the hold and Woogie rolls away and to the outside. Woogie looks like he needs to catch his breath. Woogie leans against the barricade for a second. Now he’s going to try and get back in. Turns around—

Bari: BIG BASEBALL SLIDE RIGHT INTO WOOGIE’S FACE! Shaker just nailed him!

Stew: Look at Woogie! There’s a massive cut over his right eye from that shot! And Shaker senses it! Like a shark who’s sniffed blood, he’s out of the ring and on the assault! The referee starts the count!

ONE!

Shaker runs up from behind Woogie! Bulldog drops Woogie right on his face again!

TWO!

Shaker goes to pull Woogie up slowly to his feet!

THREE!

Big right hand straight to the open wound of Woogieman!

FOUR!

Shaker pulls Woogies head down into a front facelock, but pauses to smile at the crowd over the dominance he’s shown in the match so far.

FIVE!

Shaker goes for a DDT— but Woogie keeps his stability and drives Shaker backwards! SHAKER JUST HIT SPINE FIRST ON THE CORNER POST!

SIX!

Shaker falls hard to the ground and Woogie drops to a knee. Looks like Shaker’s head may have bounced off the post as well.

SEVEN!

Wiping the blood from his face, Woogie grabs ahold of Shaker and pulls him up, Woogie can’t win the title by countout!

EIGHT!

Woogie tosses Shaker onto the apron and rolls him in.

NINE!

Woogie rolls himself into the ring as well, stopping the count. But Woogie is blinking quite a bit. Could have some blood actually in his eye now. Stomps now to the back and side of Shaker. Woogie trying to mount some real offense here! Oof. Now grinding his boot directly into the center of Shaker’s back!

Bari: Woogie needs to take advantage while Shaker is down! And look! He’s grabbing ahold of the legs! SHARPSHOOTER APPLIED! The Big Bhaker Bhampion is screaming in pain!

Stew: Woogie drove Shaker’s back into that post and now he’s putting all of this pressure onto his spinal column! Shaker is tied up and Woogie is sinking it in tighter! Shaker looking desperately for he ropes!

Bari: The ref is asking if he wants to tap! He may have no choice! He’s got his hand raised!!!!

Stew: WHAT?!? Shaker just presses his hand back down and elevated himself to roll under Woogieman and release the pressure!

Bari: Woogie has a five inch height advantage! Shaker found a way to use that against him! Creating a little gap to let him slip out of the submission! Now vertical kicks to the bleeding face of Woogieman creates even more space for Shaker to breath! Woogie stumbles back into the ropes, he’s holding his eye which is bleeding like a faucet now!

Stew: Shaker getting back on the attack now! He charges and meets Woogie at the ropes! Irish Whip sends Woogie into the ropes on the other side! Shaker steps up, scoops low… He has Woogie on his shoulders! Rotates!!!

Bari: SHAKERMAKER CONNECTS!!!! The fireman’s carry cutter plants Woogie right on the injured eye!! Cover!!

ONNNNNEEEEE!!!!

TWWWWWOOOOOOO!!!!!

THHHHHRRRRREEEEE—

HOW? WOOGIE JUST GOT THE SHOULDER UP AT THE LAST TENTH OF A SECOND!!!!

Stew: That’s how much the title and this rivalry means to him!!! Shaker is beside himself! He’s looking at the ref and telling him it was three! But he’s gotta focus on finishing Woogieman!!

Bari: Well now he’s turned his attention! He grabs Woogie by the head and pulls him up to a knee! But now he’s letting go? He’s walking backwards to the corner… stands at the ready… Woogie is wobbling as he gets up to his feet…

Stew: Shaker is stalking… Charges!! GIVE ‘EM THE BOOT!!!!!!!!

Bari: MISSES!!! Woogie dropped to the ground just in time but I don’t think he meant to… he may be suffering from blood loss…. but Shaker got his leg caught in the rope and landed flat on his back! That can’t feel good after all of the damage he’s taken already!

Stew: Both men trying to get back to their feet, Shaker gingerly moving with his hurt back, Woogieman trying to slap some life back into himself! Shaker moves towards Woogieman, takes a big swing!

Bari: SPINEBUSTER FROM WOOGIEMAN!!! That had to be pure instinct! But now he’s waking up! He knows where he is! He stands over Shaker as he gazes around at the crowd! He looks left! He looks right! The noise from the crowd is deafening! They know what he’s thinking! HES TAKING OFF THE ARM GUARD! THE CROWD IS GOING MENTAL! He tosses the arm guard! He swings the arms!!! Here it comes!! The most electrifying move in answers based wrestling! Hits the ropes! Once! Twice! PEOPLES ELBOW CONNECTS!!!!!!

Stew: Woogie makes the cover!!!

ONNNNNNEEEE!!!!!

TWWWWOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!

THHHHHHRRRREEEEEEEEEEE

KICKOUT!!!! SHAKER KICKS OUT OF THE PEOPLES ELBOW! The Bhampion still has life!!! How did he have the strength to do that left in his back?!?

Stew: Woogie can’t believe it! He’s not even arguing with the ref! He’s just staring in shock! He doesn’t know what he has to do to put Shaker away! He grabs Shaker by the hair and wants to pull him up to his feet!

Bari: But Shaker is riding the adrenaline now! Shots to the midsection of Woogie! Woogie doubles over from the punches! OOOH! Shaker with a big knee to the face of Woogieman! Maintains head control! Big jump from Shaker! SNAKE BITE!!! THE SNAKE BITE CONNECTS! The momentum from the tornado DDT from standing whips Woogie almost entirely across the ring! Shaker dives on him for the lateral press!!!

ONNNEEEEEEE!!!!

TWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!

THHHHHHHRRRREEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!

FOOT ON THE ROPES!!! FOOT ON THE ROPES!!! WOOGIEMAN GOT HIS FOOT ON THE ROPES! There was no way he was kicking out of the Snake Bite but it shot him close enough to the ropes to survive!

Stew: Shaker is pounding the mat! He’s demanding the ref call for the bell! He looks down at Woogieman who is just drenched in blood now! I don’t know how he’s still fighting!! Woogie doesn’t know where he is. Shaker is basically lifting his entire weight up to stand. Shaker goes for the Irish whip!

Bari: But Woogie just collapses! He’s nearly blacked out! The ref goes to check… but Shaker shoves the ref off and tells him not to interfere! Shaker pulls Woogieman up again!

Stew: Oh come on! He’s slapping him in the face! Now going for the Irish whip again! Works this time— Wait! Woogie plants his feet on the step through! Twists around while holding onto Shaker’s arm! Pulls him in! THE BOTTOM!!!! THE BOTTOM CONNECTS!!!!! SHAKER HAS BEEN PLANTED! WOOGIE FALLS ON TOP OF HIM! HOOKS THE LEGS! CENTER OF THE RING!

ONNNNNEEEEEEE!!!!!!!

TWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

THHHHRRRREEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Stew: HES DONE IT! WOOGIEMAN HAS DONE IT! WHAT AN UPSET!

Bari: That natural fighter’s instinct, that will to win, that’s what kept him going here! A big win for Woogieman and he’s earned it!

(The referee raises Woogieman’s hand and hands him the title belt. Woogie stumbles into the corner as doctor’s come in to check on him. A giant smile comes across his face as he looks down at the belt.)

Stephie: HERE IS YOUR WINNER BY PINFALL… AAAAAANNNND NEWWWWWWW… EAW BIG BOOGIE BHAMPION… THEEEEEEEEE WOOOOOGGIIIEEEEMMMAAAANNNN!!!!!!!

Stew: What a night here for Woogieman! He walks away with the newly renamed Big Boogie Bhampionship! He’s going to need some medical attention, but we know he’s going out to celebrate somehow, someway, as only he can!

( Camera heads backstage to one of the larger Festival viewing lounges where EAW Elitists from all four brands are sitting; some on a couch, Remi Skyfire and Revy at the bar, and a few others at several tables. )

( We see Cameron Ella Ava sitting at a table with her sister Camille Jane Ava. Cam has her EAW Unified Tag Team Title belt on the table in front of her, as she’s multitasking between watching the Woogieman vs Shaker match on TV and texting on her phone. )

????: YOU STUPID FUCKING BITCH!

( Cam and Camille are startled, and Scott Diamond BURSTS into the room before approaching Cameron and Camille, who both jump to their feet. )

Cameron Ella Ava: Scott!

Scott Diamond: YOU SET ME UP AT WRATH OF THE DRAGON DIDN’T YOU? YOU WERE IN WITH THOSE MOTHERFUCKERS ALL ALONG!

Cameron: Scott I swear to God, I swear on my sisters, I swear on everything that I had nothing to do with what happened to you that night and I had nothing to do with what happened last nig–

( Scott flips a table. )

Scott: DO YOU THINK I’M STUPID OR SOMETHING?! RIPLEY HELPS YOU RETAIN THE TITLES ON NIGHT 2, AND THEN YESTERDAY YOUR NEW PARTNER SAVES THERON’S CAREER? IS THAT SUPPOSED TO BE WHAT? JUST A COINCIDENCE?

Cameron: Scott you need to listen to me. Please listen. Banks and I have been friends for almost 8 years now, he’s been my mentor, he brought me into this company. I would NEVER be a part of something like this. DDD acted on his own, I haven’t heard from him since–

( Scott grabs Cameron by her throat and shoves her into a wall, prompting several Elitists to react out of concern. )

Scott: BULLSHIT! I DON’T BELIEVE YOU, AND ANYONE WHO DOES IS A FUCKING IDIOT!

Camille: WHAT THE HELL IS YOUR PROBLEM? GET OFF OF HER!

Scott: I have had so many-SO MANY OPPORTUNITIES TO KILL YOU OVER THE YEARS, AND NEVER ONCE DID I CAPITALIZE ON THEM, BUT YOU KNOW WHAT? I SHOULD HAVE!

( The Core Bros, Cody Marshall, Damon Diesel, Revy and Ms. Extreme all separate Scott from Cameron. )

Marco Core: You need to chill the hell out man!

Damon Diesel: Yeah seriously, now’s not the time for all that.

Cody Marshall: If you want to fight somebody so bad why don’t you start a fight with me.

( The two behemoths — Scott Diamond and Cody Marshall — get into each others face. After a tense moment, Scott looks over at Cam once again. )

Scott: You’re lucky you have all of these simps around to protect your ass, otherwise it would have been Reckless Wiring 2015 pt. 2. But that’s alright Cam, I hope you enjoy your new little stable, you’re going to need all of the protection you can get.

Revy *drunk*: Get the hell outta here!

( Scott Diamond storms out of the room, and Cameron Ella Ava looks on holding her throat, appearing disturbed by what just took place. )

( http://media.discordapp.net/attachments/396155295174492172/457128644112941056/PFPCITV.png )

( The camera fades onto entrance ramp where ladders are set up lining the stage. The camera then pans over to ladders resting against the barricade, showing where all the ladders are laid out. The camera then pans to the CITV briefcase ominously hanging over the ring. )

Stew-O: Next up! We’ve got a real banger for you! This match is going to be LIT AF… That match between Chris Elite and Malcolm Jones really got me educated! I’m no longer uncultured swine! This match will be straight fire, gang shit! I’M READY FOR BASH IN THE VAULT!!

Talib Bari: Please stop… Go back to being uncultured swine please. It was much less cringe worthy.

Stew-O: I apologize it appears someone may have slipped a molly in my beverage while I had my back turned, hopefully I can keep it together for the duration of this match!

Talib Bari: So THAT’S what Deadprez was doing over here earlier…

( DING! DING! DING! )

Stephie Love: The following contest is the Cash in the Vault match! The only way to win is to climb a ladder and take possession of the Cash in the Vault Briefcase. The winner will receive a contract for a guaranteed championship match of their choosing.

(Indestructible by Disturbed plays and Erebus Jennings solemnly walks out on the stage, and makes his way down to the ring.)

Love: Introducing first, from Parts Unknown, weighing in at 240 pounds.. “The Forthcoming of Darkness” ERRREEEBUSSS JEEEENNIIIINNGGSSSSS!!!

(DUST by Tremonti blasts through the speakers as Kevin Hunter poses at the top of the ramp, before making his way down to the ramp.)

Love: From Brooklyn, New York, weighing in at 235 pounds… “The Devil Incarnate” KEEEVVVIIIIN… HUUUUUNTTTTEERRR!!!

( ‘Anthem of the Lonely’ by Nine Lashes plays throughout the arena, as Raven Roberts walks out holding her hands up as hater blockers for the fans down the ramp way.)

Love: From Las Vegas, Nevada, weighing in at 151 pounds… “The Bird of Prey”… RAAAVVEEEN…. ROOOOBBERRRTTSSS!!!

(“Infinity War” by Alan Silvestri plays as the arena remains darkened. Red, yellow, blue, green, orange and purple spotlights line up over the ramp. A voice then starts to echo throughout the Las Vegas Motor Speedway…)

“I know what it’s like to lose.”

(Lucian losing the World Heavyweight Championship at House of Glass 2016 is shown on the titantron)

“To feel so desperately that you’re right, yet to fail nonetheless.”

(Lucian calling out the Showdown management then losing his CITV qualifying match weeks later is shown)

“Dread it. Run from it. Destiny still arrives. Or should I say… ”

(Shots of articles from SportsCenter and TMZ Sports about Lucian’s departure and eventual return to EAW flash across the screen before fading to black and the music stops)

“… I have.”

( “Shadow Boxing” by Parkway Drive hits as Lucian comes out in Thanos inspired entrance and ring gear, wearing a replica of the Infinity Gauntlet on his left hand. Upon reaching the stage’s centerpiece, he raises it and the Pain for Pride graphics on every screen in the arena and the titantron slowly disintegrate before completely fading to black. )

(“The Sky Is A Neighborhood” by Foo Fighters plays throughout the arena, as Devan Dubian walks down to the ring.)

Love: From Leicester, England, United Kingdom, weighing in at 230 pounds… “The Amazing Emir”… DEEVVVAAAN DUUUUUUBBBIAAAN!!!

“I GOT, YOU WANT .
IT’S JUST, DON’T STOP.
I GOT, YOU WANT.
IT’S JUST, DON’T STOP.”

“THIS IS ENTERTAINMENT,
LIES ARE ENTERTAINMENT
YOU ARE DOWN ON YOUR KNEES
BEGGING ME FOR MORE!”

( The hook for the song “Don’t Stop” by InnerPartySystem rips through the sound system and that is the cue for Noah Reigner to walk through the guerrilla curtain and out onto the stage. He is, of course, followed by Evelyn Ridley. )

( Noah stops ontop of the ramp, his eyes scanning the crowd as the verses of the song begin to take over. For his entrance, Noah wears a sleeveless “Assault Rifle” shirt underneath a leather biker vest. The back of the vest has been painted with the words “NOAH REIGNER ASSAULT RIFLE” – his name arched above the Dogs of War emblem and his nickname underneath it. Over the lower half of his face, he wore a purple bandana – matching the designs on his shorts – that read “DOG OF WAR” over the mouth. Noah stopped on top of the ramp way, his arms hanging loosely at his sides. )

RING ANNOUNCER: “Being accompanied by Evelyn Ridley – from Seattle, Washington, weighing at One Hundred and Eighty- Four pounds. He is “THE ASSAULT RIFLE”, NOOOAHHHHHHH REIGNNEEERRRRRRRR!!!!

( Just after his name was announced, he brought his arms up into a “assault rifle” and took several shots at the ring and crowd before quickly dropping his arms and marching down to the ring. He continues the rest of his entrance and the camera pans back to the stage. )

(Young and Bitter by Hot Tag Media plays, as Lucas Johnson makes his way down to the ring with a mean scowl on his face. Giving the finger to all the fans.)

Love: From Atlanta, Georgia, weighing in at 205 pounds… “The Wrestling Machine”… LUCCAAAASSSS… JOOOOHHNSSOOON!!!

(Fire by BTS starts blaring through the arena as Consuela Rose Ava walks out onto the stage wearing a green maid outfit, and golden broom. She does a little turn to show it off, and walks down to the ring. Wiping people with the broom as she goes by.. They’re aren’t enjoying it as much as she thinks.)

Love: From Barcelona, Spain, weighing in at 120 pounds… “The Maid”… CONSUELA.. ROOOOSSEEE… AAAAAAAAVVVVAAAAAA!!!

Stew-O: Look at all the determined faces on these competitors. They all know what that briefcase signifies; they all know what’s a stake here tonight. Any one of them can take it. All the talking is done, it is time to find out who has what it takes to climb the ladder.. Of success.. And grab that briefcase.

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Stew-O: And we are underway here.. Lucian Black runs right at Kevin Hunter, they are trading blows in the corner.. Noah runs full steam at Lucas Johnson and nearly takes his damn head off with a big boot! LUCAS ducks underneath it however and blasts Kevin and Lucian with some wild forearm strikes! Noah Reigner comers after Lucas Johnson, but Lucas delivers a spinkick to the midsection, and DELIVERS A HIGH-ANGLED CORKSCREW NECKBREAKER WHILE RUNNING OFF THE CHEST OF HUNTER TO DRILL NOAH WITH THE DDT! Now Lucian comes after Lucas with a kick to the midsection, perhaps looking fore a pedigree, but LUCAS JOHN DELIVERS A DRAGON SCREW LEG WHIP!

Talib: NICE MOVE FROM JOHNSON! Now he spots a recovering Noah Reigner who’s using the ropes to pull himself off, and LUCAS BLASTS REIGNER WITH A CLOTHESLINE TO TAKE HIM OUT OF THE RING! BUT REIGNER DODGES AND BLASTS LUCAS WITH A LARIAT SO HARD, IT SENDS THE BOTH OF THEM OVER THE ROPES AND OUT OF THE RING!! Meanwhile Erebus Jennings seems to be in full control of Raven Roberts as he just throws her into the turnbuckle, and repeatedly starts hitting her in the face with that right hand. It seems as though Raven wasn’t ready to be blindsided like that! Welp, I guess she can kiss those good looks good bye with the way he’s hammering away at her face. Devan charges at Consuela, but she side steps him as he’s flung out of the ring. Consuela grabs the ropes, lines herself up perfectly and jumps over the ropes landing directly on Devan.

Talib: This is chaos! Of course what else do you expect from CITV! Consuela is up and looks like she’s going to be the first one to introduce a ladder into this as she picks one up. Dub still trying to catch his bearings.. CONSUELA RUNS AT DUB AND JUST PINS HIM UP AGAINST THE RING POST! Dub collapses straight to the ground. Consuela now planning on bringing that ladder into the ring! But is met with a drop kick by Erebus flinging the ladder right into her face! Erebus takes a hold of the ladder. He turns around and is greeted by Raven who is coming in with a dropkick to the ladder! No! Erebus moved, and Raven gets hit right in the face with the ladder! Raven barely blocks herself, but she still gets taken down! Erebus has been on a mean streak ever since taking Terry Chambers out the other night! Erebus slides the ladder into the ring, is he trying to win it already? Erebus slides into the ring.. MARTYRIZATION FROM LUCIAN!!!! STRAIGHT ON THE LADDER!!!!!! Erebus got JACKED UP!

Stew-O: Lucian now looking at up at the briefcase, and notices no one around. He sets up the ladder, and starts to ascend to the briefcase. Meanwhile Noah throws Lucas Johnson over the barricade and into the audience! With a smug look he’s wiping his hands clean, he’s feeling pretty good! But he notices Lucian going up the ladder, and that smirk turns into a scowl. Noah rushes into the ring, in time to grab Lucians foot. He throws Lucian off the ladder, but Lucian lands on his feet. Lucian ducks a clothesline, and hits s super kick right to the face of Noah! Again Lucian tries to get back up the ladder but now Kevin is getting in the way of that! He takes Lucian off the ladder, and throws him out of the ring! Looks like Kevin is looking up towards the ladder, thinking he has an opening! But Lucian Black from behind drags him by the feet to the outside, and back body drops Kevin right on the announce table! Lucian seems to have something in mind. He walks over to one of the many ladders laying around at ringside, and he is laying the ladder across the announcers table and the ring! Making something like a bridge? He picks Kevin back up… But from behind Raven Roberts with a stiff elbow to the back of Lucians neck! Raven throws Lucian on top of the ladder, and makes her way into the ring. And gets up to the top turnbuckle, looking down at a down and out Lucian Black! SENTON BOMB FROM THE TOP TURNBUCKLE ONTO THE LADDER!!!!!

Talib: NO LUCIAN MOVED OUT OF THE WAY AND RAVEN LANDS BACK FIRST ON THE LADDER!!!! She’s screaming in pain!!!! Let’s turn our attention back to the ring though, as Consuela is back in the thick of things. She has now successfully brought a ladder into the ring. Kevin Hunter is back though! He backs Consuela back into the turnbuckle, but there’s still a ladder between them! Consuela has nowhere to go, but up I guess. As she’s climbing up the turnbuckle! Kevin is grabbing at her through the ladder! This is something out of a horror movie! Consuela keeps dodging Kevins hands as he keeps trying to grab a hold of her! Consuela with a strike right to his face through the ladder, CONSUELA JUMPS UP ON THE LADDER AND MAKES IT FALL FORWARD AND HAS THAT LADDER JUST SQUASHING KEVIN UNDER IT!!!! Consuela gets up, and picks the ladder up off of Kevin and sets it up! She is climbing up the ladder. But here comes Erebus back, he’s climbing up the ladder too. Consuela has the high ground on him though, as she’s trying to fight Erebus off. Erebus keeps blocking all those punches that Consuela is throwing!

Stew-O: Lucian now setting up a ladder right next to them, and starts climbing. Consuela notices, and starts kicking at Lucians legs, and trying to keep off Erebus at the same time. Here comes Dub! All four are at the top of this ladder just trading blows! Lucian punches Dub, and he stumbles a bit, but he’s staying in there. Erebus hits Consuela in the face, then Lucian.. HERE COMES NOAH, HE RUSHES IN AND JUST PUSHES DOWN BOTH LADDERS… LUCIAN AND DUBIAN GO FLYING OVER THE ROPES, AND CRASH TO THE FLOOR!!!!!! CONSUELA AND EREBUS GO CROTCH FIRST ONTO THE TOP ROPE…

Talib Bari: That is WAY more unfortunate for one than it is the other…

Stew-O: Go figure! Erebus flops down onto the mat writhing in pain grabbing his crotch, and Consuela winds up on the apron also grabbing her crotch and writhing in pain. There is absolute carnage out here! Noah picks up one of the ladders and sets it up under the briefcase. He starts making his way up the ladder, but Lucas Johnson isn’t far behind as he grabs a hold of Noahs foot. Noah kicks him off though and keeps going up. But Lucas isn’t laying off, and just tips the ladder over sideways. BUT NOAH STOPS THE MOMENTUM OF THE LADDER BY PUTTING HIS FOOT OUT ON THE ROPE! HE KICKS BACK AND FLINGS THE LADDER BACK UP! AND HE DIVES INTO THE AIR AS ITS MOVING BACK INTO POSITION, AND CRACKS LUCAS WITH A HARD FLYING ELBOW! The ladder almost lands right on both of them, but they’re saved as the ladder rests on the top rope!

Talib: On the outside Lucian is crawling around, looking under the ring? Lucian there’s ladders everywhere buddy, what are you doing? He’s going through some things Stew-O clearly, he’s not in the right frame of mind.. He seems to be taking something out from under the ring? A TABLE?! BUT WHY? YOU CAN’T CLIMB TABLES LUCIAN?! Yup, he’s lost his mind.. Clearly that table isn’t high enough to climb in order to get the briefcase! I would know, I’m very good at science! Oh he’s going back.. What’s he getting now?.. Is that.. LIGHTER FLUID???? LUCIAN NO, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD MAN NO!!!

Stew-O: Lucian sets up the table, and pours lighter fluid on it. He reaches in his tights, and grabs a matchbox. He lights the match, and is tossing it on the table. JESUS!!!!! I CAN FEEL THE HEAT FROM THE FIRE FROM HERE! THE TABLE HAS BEEN LIT UP!!!!! STOP THIS! THIS ISN’T WHAT CITV IS ABOUT!!!!

Talib: THIS SON OF A BITCH IS GOING TO GET THE FIRE MARSHALL CALLED OUT HERE AND HAVE THIS WHOLE THING SHUT DOWN! Noah seems oblivious to this as he rolls back up, and picks the ladder up! He’s again setting it under the briefcase, and making his way up the ladder trying to get the briefcase. Lucas Johnson also is back up! They both are making their way up the ladder, trying to get their hands on the case, not paying attention to the outside. They’re punching each other up top, but here comes Lucian! He just stares at them from the bottom of the ladder! Noah hits Lucas, and Lucas falls down a rung, but catches himself before falling all the way. Noah notices Lucian just staring at him.

Stew-O: LUCIAN NOW TIPPING THE LADDER OVER!!!!!!! NOAH AND LUCAS ARE HEADED STRAIGHT FOR THAT BURNING TABLE! OH MY LOOOOOOOOORD!!!! THERE THEY GO! INTO THE FLAMING TABLE! THEY BOTH GO CRASHING THROUGH! OH GOD! POOR POOR LUCAS JOHNSON! HE GOT THE BRUNT OF IT! OH NO! LUCAS IS STILL IN THE FLAMES! HES ENGULFED! SOMEONE HELP THAT MAN OUT! HE’S ROLLING AROUND PUTTING THE FLAMES OUT!!!!! HOPEFULLY THE BURNS AREN’T TERRIBLY BAD! OH GOD! LUCIAN IS A SICK BASTARD! GOOD THING NOAH HAD A LUCAS JOHNSON TO BREAK HIS FALL.. BUT STILL A TRAUMATIC SITUATION FOR BOTH COMBATANTS!

Talib: Raven now coming back into the ring! I thought that bump she took on the ladder might have killed her, but 901 Raven Drive looks alive looks alive! She’s coming after Lucian.. Slowly.. Lucian sees and goes right to her. Raven ducks a right hand shot and kicks Lucian right in the gut SENDS HIM FACE FIRST INTO THE LADDER! She’s runs off the ropes and comes right back and DROPKICKS LUCIAN right back onto that ladder that’s leaning up against the ropes! Raven picks the ladder up from the bottom! What’s she thinking here? Lucian is still on the ladder, OUCH!!! SHE LIFTS THE LADDER THAT LUCIAN IS LAYING ON OVER THE TOP ROPE, AND HAS HIM CRASHING DOWN TO THE RINGSIDE FLOOR WITH THE LADDER LANDING RIGHT ON TOP OF HIM!!! WHAT A NASTY COLLISION TO THE RINGSIDE FLOOR, THAT COULD HAVE BEEN BONESHATTERING!!!! I don’t know how any of these people are going to make it out alive! Raven follows the downed Lucian to the outside. She’s picking up the ladder that she used to throw Lucian over the ropes! Yeah.. That things broken… She throws it down in frustration, right over the face of Lucian. An accident, but effective. Just like a one night stand where you get her pregnant am I right?

Stew-O: No.. Raven now picks up another ladder, and shoves it in the ring. But here comes Dubian who had the same idea. And CONSUELA… AND EREBUS AND KEVIN HUNTER.. They’re all standing there with ladders… What are they going to do? THEY ALL RUN AT EACH OTHER! CRASHING ALL THE LADDERS.TOGETHER!!!! WHAT IS THIS GOING TO ACCOMPLISH! THEY ALL RUN AT EACH OTHER AGAIN…. IT DOES NOTHING! THEY KEEP CRASHING INTO EACH OTHER WITH THOSE LADDERS! BUT SINCE EVERYONE HAS THE PROTECTION OF LADDERS, THEY’VE ALL COME TO A STALEMATE! Dub turns his ladder so that the legs are facing them.. THEY’RE ALL COPYING HIM… ITS LIKE A JOUST OF LADDERS! THEY’RE GOING TO JOUST! BRING THY HORSES! TIS YE OLE JOUST! WHERE’S THY WENCH!

Talib: Dude.. Shut the fu-

Dub: You two go first! (pointing at Kevin Hunter and Consuela)

Consuela: No you.

Dub: Alright.

Talib: BAM!!! DEVAN JUST TOSSES THE LADDER RIGHT INTO THE FACE OF KEVIN HUNTER!!! NOW THEY ALL TOSS THEIR LADDERS AT KEVIN HUNTER, MAKING IT RAIN LADDERS ON POOR HUNTER! AND BEGIN BRAWLING AMONGST EACH OTHER! Kevin Hunter is bewildered by what just happened to him — OH DUBIAN CAUGHT HIM WITH THE BLEEDING EDGE!!!! BLEEDING EDGE FROM OUT OF NOWHERE!!!! Consuela tosses her ladder up against the turnbuckle. Erebus and Raven start brawling, although Raven is lighting him up with punches forcing Erebus to go on the defensive! Consuela turns around, and sees Devan just standing there with a grin on his face, she charges at him, and DEVAN WITH THE BACK BODY DROP ON CONSUELA OVER THE ROPES TO THE OUTSIDE!! NO! She lands on the apron. He kicks her in the stomach, and is going for the rope hung DDT!!!! CONSUELA WITH A LOW BLOW! AND SHE FLINGS DUB OVER THE ROPES, AND HE LANDS ON THAT BRIDGED LADDER!!!!! GOD DUB GOES SPINE FIRST RIGHT INTO THAT STEEL! Kevin Hunter is lurking out there, furious after being assailed with ladders, AND NOW HE DRAGS CONSUELA OFF OF THE APRON AND DELIVERS A POWERBOMB ON TOP OF DEVAN, ON TOP OF THE LADDER!!!!

Stew-O: Kevin now slides in the ring; but is GREETED WITH A LADDER SHOT TO THE FACE FROM EREBUS!!! WHAT HORRIBLE LUCK FOR HUNTER, EVERY TIME HE HAS SOMETHING GOING FOR HIM HE’S HIT IN THE FACE!

Talib Bari: He sets up the ladder right across the throat of Kevin Hunter so he can’t move anywhere! EREBUS IS CLIMBING UP THE LADDER, AND IS GRABBING FOR THE BRIEFCASE… HE HAS IT! WAIT! LUCIAN IS BACK!!!!!! HE KNOCKS DOWN THE LADDER!!!! But Erebus IS STILL HANGING ON TO THE BRIEFCASE FOR DEAR LIFE!!!!! Erebus is hanging in mid air clutching onto the briefcase! Lucian is trying to jump up and reach him! But he’s just too high! Wait here comes Raven… Lucian looks at her, Raven looks at him… Could it be?!

Stew-O: True love?

Talib: No Stew! Damn it get off the molly… They’re working together! Lucian gets down on his knees, and Raven jumps on his shoulders! MORE HEIGHT! FANTASTIC! Erebus is frantically trying to unlatch the briefcase in mid air and claim it as his own, but Raven gets a hold of Erebus and pulls him off the briefcase! AND EREBUS GOES FALLING 15 FEET FROM THE AIR, CRASHING DOWN INTO THE MAT!!!! Look at Raven, she’s smiling, and patting Lucian on the head! I think we have a new tag team on our hands!! DARE I SAY.. A POWER COUPLE!!!! You were right, it’s true love… Uh oh.. LUCIAN FLIPS RAVEN AROUND IN A POWERBOMB POSITION.. HE RUNS OVER TO THE ROPES AND TOSSES HER OVER TO THAT DEATH MACHINE LADDER BRIDGE THAT IS STILL HERE!!!!!!! RIGHT INTO CONSUELA AND DUBIAN WHO ARE LAYING ON TOP OF EACH OTHER!!!!! AND THAT POWERBOMB OVER THE ROPES SENDS THE WEIGHT OF CONSUELA, DUBIAN, AND RAVEN COLLAPSE THROUGH THE LADDER!!!!!! THEY FALL TO THE GROUND!!!!!!

Stew-O: Lucian needs to capitalize here! He’s all alone. He picks up the ladder that was still laying in the ring and sets it up right under the briefcase. But here comes Erebus, he’s finding a way back to his feet, and so is Kevin Hunter!

Talib: Kevin Hunter takes a hold of Lucian and throws him out of the ring! Lucian lands on the apron though; Kevin notices and runs back to him. LUCIAN THOUGH SPRINGBOARDS OVER Kevin AND ONTO THE LADDER!!! HE’S MAKING HIS WAY UP THE LADDER, AS IS EREBUS!!!! THEY’RE SLUGGING AWAY AT EACH OTHER!!!!! Kevin isn’t having any of it though, as he sets up a ladder right next to them. Lucian and Erebus aren’t paying attention to him, as they’re caught up in a fierce battle! Kevin is at the top now, reaching for the briefcase! HE’S TOUCHING IT! KEVIN HUNTER IS FINGER TIPS AWAY FROM WINNING THIS!!!!

Stew-O: Consuela! FROM BEHIND! SHE’S BACK IN THE RING! She must be one tough cookie after being crushed on that ladder.. But I guess Dubian was able to cushion the blow.. SHE JUST PUSHES KEVIN OFF THE LADDER!!!! But Kevin isn’t going alone as he reaches out at Lucian Blacks foot and drags him down to the mat too! KILLER EFFECT TO LUCIAN BLACK!!!!! NOW A KILLER EFFECT TO LUCAS JOHNSON… NO! HE COUNTERED OUT OF THAT ONE! EREBUS FROM OFF THE TOP OF THE LADDER! DOUBLE DROP KICK ON BOTH LUCIAN AND KEVIN!!!! LUCAS JOHNSON IS BACK AND TAKES EREBUS DOWN WITH A ROLLING ELBOW ACROSS THE NOSE!!! LUCIAN’S BACK UP, BUT LUCAS JOHNSON DELIVERS A WINDMILL KICK INTO LUCIAN TO TAKE HIM BACK DOWN!!! NOW KEVIN HUNTER COMES AT LUCAS, BUT LUCAS TAKES HIM OVER THE ROPES TO LAND ON THE APRON, AND SPRINGS OFF THE TURNBUCKLE FOR A SPRING-OFF DROPKICK TO TAKE HUNTER BACK DOWN AT RINGSIDE!

Talib Bari: LUCAS JOHNSON CHARGES AT EREBUS WHO’S IN THE CORNER, AND DELIVERS A RUNNING EUROPEAN UPPERCUT TO THE CORNER, SPRINGS TO THE TOP ROPE, AND DELIVERS A CORKSCREW EUROPEAN UPPERCUT FROM THE TOP TO TAKE EREBUS BACK OUT! Lucas Johnson is on a roll! NOW LUCAS JOHNSON SPOTS CONSUELA, AND DELIVERS A STINGING SLAP ACROSS THE FACE!!! Lucas appears to have some remorse after that!

Consuela: Oh my god! I’m just a GIRL! Why would you hit me like that.. (starts crying)

Lucas Johnson: I- I’m sorry .. I didn’t know it was you.. A-Are you ok?

Consuela: Yeah, you dumbass little bitch!

Talib: OH Consuela just kicked Lucas Johnson in the balls! She tricked him into feeling remorse! What a fool! Who feels feelings in a match like this!! WAIT? Is.. IS that Noah Reigner? He didn’t die in the fire?! Thank God! Noah looks at Consuela and starts laughing.. HE SLAPS HER!!! Consuela, not to be out done! SLAPS HIM BACK!!!! Devan Dubian rolls back in the ring, and sits in the corner quietly.. Just observing two grown adults slap each other. Noah slaps Consuela again.. AND Consuela, SLAPS NOAH BACK!!! Look at Dub! While these two are going slap happy! He tip toes over to the unoccupied ladder! Devan is sneakily creeping over to the ladder, and is telling the crowd to “SHHH” as he sets up the ladder as quietly as he possibly can! He quietly starts creeping up! Dubian IS RIGHT UNDER THE BRIEFCASE! THESE TWO SHOULD STOP HAVING A DICK MEASURING CONTEST AND PAY ATTENTION TO WHAT’S IMPORTANT!!!

Stew-O: I don’t know how Consuela would win in a dick measuring contest anyways, seeing as though.. WAIT! Raven is on the apron, SPRINGBOARD DROPKICK TO CONSUELA AND NOAH AS THEY GO CRASHING INTO THE LADDER! AND THAT KNOCKS DUBIAN OFF THE LADDER DOWN TO THE MAT! Raven is back up, and so is Lucian, he rolls into the ring. Raven runs at Lucian, and he ducks a clothesline, she comes back and he goes for scoop power slam! But she wiggles out of it, AND NAILS HIM WITH AN ATOMIC DROP FROM BEHIND! AND A DOUBLE KNEE LUNGBLOWER FROM BEHIND!!! Raven, sets up the ladder, and starts climbing up it. she seems all alone.. Oh never mind Erebus is rolling back into the ring! With another ladder! He just blasts that ladder right into the ribs of Raven! I guess you can say that he CLIPPED HER WINGS! Because she’s – she’s on the ground.. Get it?

Talib Bari: Congrats Stew.. What an incredibly easy joke to make. Erebus throws the extra ladder out of the ring. He sees Noah Reigner coming back in the ring, and is caught holding a ladder. Erebus puts the ladder over his head, and swings it at Noah. Noah ducks it! And kicks Erebus in the knee; he drops down. Noah now runs at Erebus. AND Erebus WITH THE LADDER STILL ON HIS SHOULDERS PICKS UP NOAH TOO! BOTH THE LADDER AND NOAH REIGNER ARE UP ON EREBUS SHOULDERS! WHAT STRENGTH! THE LADDER IS ACTING AS LIKE A TABLE FOR NOAH TO HAVE A NOT SO COMFORTABLE REST ON! FIREMAN’S CARRY SLAM WITH THE LADDER AND NOAH REIGNER!!!!! EREBUS HITS THAT PERFECTLY.. The ladder landed right on top of Noah to add to the brutality! Lucian Black now climbing the turnbuckle DIVING DOUBLE FOOT STOMP ONTO THE LADDER CRUSHING NOAH UNDERNEATH IT!!!! OUCH!!!!! Lucian picks the ladder back up and sets it under the briefcase! Noah rolls under the ring ropes and to the outside. Everyone is out on the outside now. Consuela is brawling with Raven. Kevin is on the ground in pain. Lucas is back up after he was taken down by Consuela! And Lucas is fighting Kevin right along side Consuela and Raven..

Stew-O: Lucian and Erebus are all alone in the ring, everyone else is preoccupied. They glance at each other, and then up at the briefcase.. They’re going for it! It’s a race to the briefcase! Wait.. Erebus stopped halfway.. He jumped off the ladder! Lucian is confused but is reaching for the briefcase! Is Erebus letting Lucian win! MAYBE EREBUS IS JUST A GOOD GUY AND KNOWS HOW LONG LUCIAN HAS BEEN WAITING FOR THIS!

Talib: ORRRRR…. MAYBE EREBUS IS TIPPING THE LADDER OVER!! LUCIAN GOES FLYING OVER THE TOP ROPES! NO!!!!! LUCIAN LANDS WITH PERFECT BALANCE ON THE TOP ROPES, AND LEAPS OFF FOR A SPRINGBOARD TOPE CON HILO TO LAND RIGHT ON ALL THE COMPETITION AT RINGSIDE!!!!!!! EREBUS HAS ESSENTIALLY TAKEN OUT EVERYBODY, HE’S THE LONE MAN STANDING IN THIS MATCH!!!! Wait! Wait Noah is stirring, he’s grabbing his ribs, and looks to be in a bad way, but he’s trying to insert himself back into this match. He wasn’t a part of the group that was just crushed… Erebus is setting up the ladder, and doesn’t know Noah is around! Erebus starts up the ladder! But here comes Noah! They meet at the top, trading blows! fierce punch to the face by Erebus, and a retaliation by Noah! Back and forth! Noah stumbled.. Erebus now stepping higher, he’s now eye level with the briefcase! But Noah fights back into the fold, and is on the same level as Erebus. Erebus throws the briefcase right at Noah’s face but he ducks out of the way! Watch out the briefcase is swinging back! Noah ducks out of the way again and Erebus gets hit right in the face!

Stew-O: Erebus is staggered! Noah grabs a hold of the CITV Briefcase! AND HE JUST REPEATEDLY BASHES EREBUS IN THE FACE!!!! OH MY GOD! HIS FACE IS BEING CAVED IN BY THE BRIEFCASE! LUCIAN BLACK RAVEN ROBERTS, AND CONSUELA SLIDE INTO THE RING LOOKING TO TIP THE LADDER OVER! BUT NOAH SHOVES EREBUS OFF THE LADDER DIRECTLY ON TOP OF CONSUELA AND LUCIAN!!!!! NOW RAVEN IS UP, AND SHE’S ABOUT TO SHOVE NOAH OFF THE TOP OF THE LADDER AS WELL!!!!!! THE LADDER GOES TURNING OVER……. NOT NOAH CATCHES HIMSELF ON THE ROPES WITH ONE FOOT!!!!!! OH MY GOODNESS, NOAH SPRINGS OFF THE ROPE WITH ONE FOOT AND USES THE MOMENTUM TO TAKE THE LADDER BACK UP TO A VERTICAL STANCE!!!! RAVEN ROBERTS HAS ANOTHER LADER IN HAND, AND SHE TOSSES IT AT NOAH REIGNER WITH ALL SHE HAS!!!!!

Talib: WHAT?!?!?! NOAH JUMPS OFF THE LADDER AND ONTO THE BRIEFCASE ITSELF!!!!! NOAH HANGING FROM THE BRIEFCASE, AND THE LADDER HE STANDS ON GETS DEMOLISHED BY THE OTHER FLYING LADDER!!!!!! WHAT AN AMAZING MOVE!!!! AND NOAH REIGNER UNLATCHES THE BRIEFCASE IN MID-AIR!!!!!! UNBELIEVABLE!!!!!!!!

(DING! DING! DING!)

( “Don’t Stop” by InnerPartySystem hits )

Stephie Love: LADIES AND GENTLEMAN THE WINNER OF THIS MATCH… AND THE 2018 MR. CASH IN THE VAULT… NOOOAAHHHH REEEIIIIIGGGNNNNERRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!

Stew-O: HE DID IT! THE ROOKIE THAT’S BEEN HERE FOR ONLY A FEW SHORT MONTHS HAS WON CASH IN THE VAULT! HE HAS COME THROUGH WITH ALL HIS CLAIMS, AND IS ON THE FAST TRACK TO BEING ONE OF THE FASTEST RISING STARS, IN EAW HISTORY. IF I WERE A WORLD CHAMPION IN EAW AS OF THIS MOMENT, I WOULD ABSOLUTELY TAKE NOTICE!!!!

Talib: You’ve got to feel for Raven Roberts who came so close from taking Reigner out! Reigner had to pull a rabbit out of his hat, that may have been one of the most clutch moments in the history of the CITV match!

Stew-O: After all the talk throughout the week, only one person could back up their claims, and right now Noah Reigner is standing tall above the competition!

Talib: It could’ve gone any which way Stew. At the end we had Erebus, Consuela, Lucian, all gunning for that briefcase, but one final blow took them all out! But this was just the beginning of Noah’s journey. Let’s not forget that this is just a contract warranting him to a match for any World Championship he chooses, not just the one from his brand.

(Madison Reigner, Evelyn Ridley, and Cameron Church join Noah Reigner in the ring as he celebrates with the briefcase. They lift Noah up on their shoulders and parade him and the briefcase around the ring)

Stew-O: Very true Bari, the hard work starts here. The World Championship isn’t just handed to you; but remember you have to be smart about it. Cash in at the wrong time, and all this hard work could’ve been for absolutely nothing! House Reigner is out here to celebrate, but let’s not take anything away from any of the competitors in this match. Erebus, Consuela, Lucas Johnson, Kevin Hunter, Raven, Devan Dubian, and Lucian Black! All did phenomenal! Congratulations to Noah Reigner though; hats off!

(The camera opens up to the amusement ride-filled carnival area of the Pain for Pride Festival. People of all ages and walks of life are walking around, enjoying the many sights the night has to offer. Undisputed Women’s World Champion Stephanie “Cloud” Matsuda is seen walking hand-in-hand with her manager and fiancee, Monica Vaughan. The couple is talking amongst themselves while sharing cotton candy. Empire backstage correspondent, Cori Simmons walks up to them. Monica is wearing a “Just Who Is Next?” shirt, while Cloud is wearing Adobe House Records merch)

Cori Simmons: Stephanie Matsuda and Monica Vaughan, I see that you’re celebrating last night’s victory over Sienna Jade?

(Cloud grins at Monica)

Cloud: We did that last night.

(Monica playfully smacks her arm)

Monica: CLOUD PLS!

Cori: (blushing) Uh, well of course! I just wanted to ask the question everyone wants to know: how are you feeling?

Cloud: How am I feeling? Well, for someone who’s in so much pain I feel pretty freaking good! I like to think after everything I’ve been through, my victory last night was made up for it. Becoming the Undisputed Women’s Champion was my redemption Cori. Now, I get to chill with the wifey for a bit while I lick my wounds…or get this one to lick-

Monica: CLOUD!

(punches Cloud’s shoulder)

Cloud: (winces) Ow! That’s my bad shoulder! Dman, Sienna kicked my ass last night. She’s a bitch, but boy can she fight her ass off! To be frank, if we were to face each other again, it could go the other way…

(Cloud sighs and nods a few times)

Cloud: Which is why when I get back to Brooklyn, I have to be ready. I have to train harder and prepare myself for the next battle.

Cori: Which is the winner of Astraea Jordan and Madison Kaline.

Cloud: Right. I have a feeling that fight is going to be more intense than the one I had last night. Maddie is hungry for vengeance, and Astraea is just itching to prove herself. Being champ is no walk in the park…

(Cloud looks around)

Cloud: Despite the fact that I’m literally walk in one right now. Well an amusement one, anyway.

(Monica shakes her head)

Monica: It doesn’t matter who wins – Stephanie will be ready. I’ll make sure of it. We have a legacy to build, and we’re nowhere near completion!

Cori: If you do successfully retain against your next challenger, where do you see yourself in season 12?

Cloud: (shrugs) Kicking ass, taking names? Possibly using my new found clout to open doors for myself and those who need it. Actually, most of my sponsor money went to my Sky Village foster home and a couple of other social service organizations. I also support affordable housing around my neighborhood in Bushwick.

Cori: Wow, you’re like a hero or something.

Monica: She’s the Luke Cage of Bushwick. She’s Brooklyn’s Hero!

Cloud: (laughs) I know of a certain Suicide Kid who would take issue with that.

Monica: Maybe you guys should fight in a “Loser Leaves Brooklyn Match?”

Cloud: (shrugs) Or Chris and I could team up and dominate the tag division. Actually…

(Cloud turns to the camera)

Cloud: Wat up Big Bad Bhris!!? If there’s a tag Grand Prix next season, hit me up!

Cori: Are you asking Chris Elite to become your tag partner?

Cloud: Well you heard the Jaded Hearts the other night- they want a shot at DEDEDE and Cam? So do I. Chris if you’re down, I’M DOWN. We’re both world champions – Brooklyn’s Finest. Hell, that sounds like a good name for a team.

Cori: Yeah, it sure does! So coming up next is the number one contender match for your title. Any words to the competitors?
(Cloud turns to the camera, her face taking on a serious tone)

Cloud: Maddie? Astraea? Good luck to the both of you. While luck is for losers, even the most talented wrestlers on the planet have it hard against the War Queen. Both of you know first-hand what I can do in the ring. Jordan, you and I fought in that Openweight qualifier 4-way. And Maddie, I defeated you at Terminus. That may be in the past, and maybe you both got stronger…but so did I. In two weeks, one of you will be in the fight of your life…one that will be worse than whatever you will go through tonight.

(Cloud pauses for a moment, squeezing Monica’s hand)

Cloud: My name is Stephanie “Cloud” Matsuda, YOUR Undisputed Women’s World Champion. Know it. Understand it. Believe it. Now if you excuse me, I’m on a date…

(Cloud and Monica walk off camera)

(“This Can Be Anywhere In The World” — Alexisonfire plays as the crowd boos as Madison Kaline comes out with her barbwire baseball bat on her shoulder. Black and white lights are flickering with each step Madison is taking for a scary feeling to her entrance.)

Jasmine Peyton: The following match is a GRUDGE MATCH and it is to determine the number one contender for the Undisputed Women’s World Championship! Introducing first, from Tampa Bay, Florida, she is “The Mistress of Death”, MAAAAADIIIIIIIIIIIISOOOOOOOOON KAAAAAAALIIIIIIINEEEEEEEE!!

Gia Cervantes: For six months, Madison Kaline was kept in the sidelines as she watched Astraea Jordan call herself Empress of Elite — an accomplishment that took Madison THREE YEARS to win. All of that was taken away when Astraea pushed Madison down some stairs and injured her ACL.

SG1: When Madison returned, she made sure that she would get her revenge on Astraea Jordan, who had returned to Empire thanks to the merge with REVOLT! Pro Combat! Flannery McCoy knew that these two women despised each other and a way to unleash their problems with one another would be a Grudge Match.

(The lights dim and the titantron shows a black screen as the crowd cheers and looks on in anticipation. A male voice is then heard throughout the Speedway as the titantron remains black.)

Them mothafuckers in school telling me, always in the salon shop
Astraea ain’t bout this, Astraea ain’t bout that
My girl a BD on fucking Lamron and them
They say that bitch don’t be putting in no work
SHUT THE FUCK UP!
Y’all bitches ain’t know shit
All ya motherfuckers talk about
Astraea ain’t no hitta
Astraea ain’t this
Astraea a fake
SHUT THE FUCK UP!
Ya’ll don’t live with that bitch
Y’all know that bitch got caught with a hospital bill
Jumpin’ bitches and puttin’ em’ on the shelf and shit
Bitch been a savage since fuckin, I don’t know when!
Motherfuckers stop fuckin’ playin’ her like that!
You know them bitches Chiraq savages out there
If I catch another motherfucker talking sweet about Astraea, I’m fucking beating they ass!
I’m not fucking playing no more!

(The voiceover fades out and the titantron then flashes and alternates between the phrases “ASTRAEA BETTER” and “GETCHA MERCH” in big, bold, white letters as the fans pop loudly. The camera pans to the right of the stage and a spotlight suddenly appears on a figure – rapper Rico Nasty, who is donning a Michael Jordan Bulls jersey and black tripp pants with red platform heels and her blonde hair up in its own type of braid. Her song “Party Goin’ Dumb” immediately starts up and the cheers get even louder. Astraea’s titantron video then replaces the words.)

“WHEN I STEP OUT, BITCHES STRETCH THEY NECK OUT! I DON’T EVER STRESS BOUT, WHAT THE CHITTER-CHAT BOUT! SMACK HER IN THE DAMN MOUTH, TIME TO BRING THE DOG OUT! SMOKING GOT THE FOG OUT, I GOT GREEN LIKE A TREEHOUSE!”

(At that moment, Astraea Jordan finally makes her way out onto the Pain For Pride stage dressed in a special, custom made green and black gear, to match the show aesthetic to a huge reaction. She also is wearing a custom black and green bomber jacket over her top with smaller prints of the PFP Festival logo all over it. Her hair is done up into two French braids that start in the front of her head and trail all the way to and down her back – they’re almost hitting the stage floor length wise. Astraea makes her way over to Rico to jam with her for a few seconds.)

“SEE ME WALKING WIT’ A PICK, LEAVE YOUR ASS IN A PIT, SMACK A BITCH TILL SHE SPIT, BLUE MONEY NO CRIPS!”

(Astraea then makes her way back over to center stage as she takes in the atmosphere. She smiles and then nods confidently before beginning her trek down the grand entrance ramp, twirling both of her long braids.with her hands as the chorus hits.)

“TOLD HER PUT IT ON HER TONGUE NOW THE PARTY GOIN’ DUMB DUMB DUMB DUMB DUMB! SMOKIN’ OUT THE UH UH UH UH UH, DO THIS SHIT FOR FUN FUN FUN FUN FUN, GOT THE PARTY GOIN’ DUMB DUMB DUMB DUMB DUMB!”

(She practically skips down the walkway until she reaches the end. She then stops again to look around the entire Las Vegas Speedway with a big smile on her face. Astraea walks over to the steel steps and walks up them step by step with a smirk. She then enters between the ropes. Astraea proceeds to trot to the middle of the ring and show off her braids once more.)

“YOUR CHAIN IS LOOKIN’ HOLLOW, I’M THE BOSS I’M ON THE TOP FLOOR! MONEY IN A FLOOR BOARD, WHAT YOU THINK I WORK FOR?!”

(She then does a 360 to show off the back of her bomber jacket which reads “JORDAN” with the number 89 symbolizing her birth year on it, relative to a sports jersey. Under all of it also has smaller text that says “R.I.P. DAD”. She slowly unzips and takes the jacket off as the music continues for a few more seconds.)

“NOW THE PARTY GOIN’ DUMB DUMB DUMB DUMB DUMB, SMOKIN’ OUT THE UH UH UH UH UH, DO THIS SHIT FOR FUN FUN FUN FUN FUN, GOT THE PARTY GOIN’ DUMB DUMB DUMB DUMB DUMB, BITCH!”

(At that last word, the music cuts out. The crowd applause and cheers for both Rico and Astraea. The camera shows us the stage as Rico Nasty bows and waves to the crowd before making her way to the backstage area. We then switch back to a shot of Astraea leaning back in one of the corners, now with a angry look on her face.)

Jasmine Peyton: Introducing her opponent, from Chicago, Illinois, ASSSSSSSSSTRRRRRRRRAEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAA JOOOOOOOORDDDDDDDDANNNNNNNNNN!!

Gia Cervantes: Here is the woman that pushed Madison Kaline down the stairs and costed her six months of her career! Astraea Jordan is an upstart on Empire! She was able to stand toe-to-toe with some of the best of this brand. She is a woman that constantly is fighting for her spot on Empire and proving her haters wrong.

SG1: Some can say that Astraea has gotten a bit of an ego since that happened. She went around calling herself Empress of Elite by default. After her match against Aria Jaxon at King of Elite, chairman of the board, Mr. DEDEDE made her go on an excursion to improve her craft. It lead her to REVOLT! Pro Combat as it merged with Elite Answers Wrestling. This meant that Astraea would find her way back to Empire and crossing the paths with Madison Kaline! Now, their rivalry leads them to the grandest stage of them all!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Gia Cervantes: Ladies and Gentleman, Astraea Jordan vs. Madison Kaline. Madison is looking to get revenge after Astraea took six months of her career with a torn ACL. She had to watch Astraea Jordan call herself the Empress of Elite while on the sidelines. It’s pretty damn clear that these two women do not like one another. The two of them are nose to nose as they are trash talking one another! Astraea is trying to look calm, cool and collected, but Madison looks like her blood is about to boil out of her brain! Madison shoves Astraea away from her! Astraea is chuckling as she cannot believe that Madison would do such a thing. Astraea gives one of her classic grins and looks at Madison and blows a kiss to her! Oh! It seemed like Madison wasn’t so much of a fan with that as she pushes Astraea to the corner as she is firing some fists directly at Astraea Jordan’s face! Madison is unloading frustration of everything that she has been through thanks to the hands of this woman! Jesse Carlton is looking to separate Madison from Astraea! Madison backs away as she yells for Jesse not to touch her! Madison does not like being touched!

SG1: While Madison was looking at Jesse, Astraea uses that as a distraction to deliver a forearm to Madison! Madison fires a forearm to Astraea! Astraea fires a forearm to Madison! Astraea! Madison! Astraea! Madison! Astraea! Madison! Madison whips Astraea to the ropes! Astraea bounces from the ropes and connects with a discus lariat turning Madison inside out! Astraea picks up Madison and connects with a military press and throws Madison from behind her! Madison lands on her stomach harsly as she is kicking in pain! Astraea turns around and gets Madison from the mat and connects with a German suplex! Astraea maintains hold onto Madison’s waist and connects with another German suplex! Astraea still holds onto Madison’s waist and connects with a third German suplex! Fourth! Fifth! Sixth! Seventh! Eighth! Nine! Tenth! Madison Kaline is going loopy thanks to the German suplexes. From the last suplex, Astraea holds on as she stays for the cover!

Jesse Carlton: OOOOOOOOOOOOONE!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!

Gia Cervantes: Madison kicks out! Astraea gets Madison up and gets her in a powerbomb position up on her shoulders and connects with a turnbuckle powerbomb on the corner! Madison goes forward and Astraea connects with a snap scoop powerslam on Madison Kaline! She still maintains hold on Madison and lifts her up and throws her from her back as Madison cries out in pain! Astraea Jordan has her arms out in confidence as the crowd delivers a mixed reaction to her! Astraea picks up Madison and carries her to the corner by force! Madison holds onto the ropes on each side of her as Astraea distances herself for a bit! She runs and connects with a cornered dropkick on Madison Kaline, making Madison falls to her knees! Astraea connects with a big boot to Madison! Madison falls to her back! Astraea is taking her sweet time with destroying Madison! Astraea bounces to the ropes and connects with leaping knee drop to Madison! No! Madison gets out of the way! Madison somehow gets out of the way! Astraea’s left knee crashes against the mat as she holds it in pain! Madison gets in a seating position as she smirks and crackles at Astraea Jordan! Madison was play possum with her the entire time!

SG1: Astraea looks at Madison angrily at Madison connects with a spear of her own! Madison takes down Astraea as she fires away with some fists of furry on Astraea! Madison Kaline is resuming how she began this match! Madison quickly gets up and gets Astraea by her braid! Madison has Astraea by her braid and delivers a snapmare as Astraea drops face first against the mat! Madison gets up and steps on the back of Astraea Jordan! Madison seems to be taking her sweet time with inflicting as much pain on Astraea as Astraea is on her! Madison is jumping on Astraea’s back! She is planning to break Astraea’s spin! No! Madison gets off of Astraea’s back before she could damage it anymore. Madison grabs Astraea by her hair and takes her to the corner! Madison distances herself for a big before running and connecting with a high knee to Astraea. Madison follows that up with a bulldog before rushing for the cover!

Jesse Carlton: OOOOOOOOONE!! TWOOOOOOOO!!

Gia Cervantes: Astraea kicks out! Madison rolls her eyes in irritation before picking up Astraea and whipping her to the ropes! Astraea bends forward, but Madison Kaline connects with a dragon screw takedown on Astraea’s left leg! It seems like Madison has found a target to wear Astarea down in her left leg! Madison gets up and gets Astraea’s left leg and smacks it against the mat a few times! Astraea is trying to use all of her strength to fight through the pain; however, Madison is making it difficult for her to do so. After Madison gets Astraea’s left leg again, twists it around and connects with a figure four leg lock that makes the crowd go “wooo”. Astraea is trying her best to fight through the pain! She is able to turn herself over, but Madison twists her back into the original position she was before! Madison cannot let Astraea make it to the ropes! Astraea is trying to scratch and claw to the bottom rope, but Madison seems to have the figure four locked in very well! Astraea is trying to think about what she needs to do in order to get out of this submission hold. She cannot afford to tap out at Pain for Pride! She cannot afford to lose the match so soon!

SG1: Astraea Jordan is clawing herself to the bottom rope. It seems to be working as Madison is moving along with her! The strength of Astraea is helping her move towards the bottom rope. With each claw against the mat, Astraea is getting closer and closer to the bottom rope! Astraea tries to turn herself around and she is successful as Madison Kaline is shocked as she tries claw her and Astraea away from the ropes, but it is no use as Astraea is able to place her fingertips on the bottom rope! The referee notices that as Astraea has her fingertips on the bottom rope and she forces Madison to release the holds which she wasn’t happy about doing, but did anyway! Astraea grabs onto the bottom rope and slides herself underneath it in order to check on her left leg! Jesse Carlton is looking at Astraea’s left leg and asking if she can continue in this match. But, it seems like Astraea will continue this match and will listen to no one that tells her not too!

Gia Cervantes: Madison smirks as she bounces from the ropes facing Astraea and connects with a basement dropkick sending Astraea Jordan outside the ring! Astraea falls from the apron as Madison looks at the same ropes again, nods and bounces and goes through the middle rope and lands on Astraea for a suicide dive! Madison and Astraea go crashing near the barricade as the two women are down. This match is no disqualification, no countouts. This is literally a fight to the finish! The only way to win this match is by pinfall or submission! Both these women are down as shockingly enough, Madison is up to her feet first. She moves her bright red hair away from her face as she exposes a sinister smirk to her face! She approaches the timekeeper’s area and pulls out a steel chair! She approaches Astraea and begins to smash her left leg! This was enough to make Astraea scream in pain! Madison hits the left leg again! Again! Again! Again! Rapidly, Madison Kaline is hitting Astraea’s left leg with a steel chair! Jesse Carlton gets in the middle of Madison as she is checking on Astraea Jordan’s left leg, but Astraea insists that she continue to fight. She is not going to quit just yet!

SG1: What an idiot! Madison could have shattered her leg! Madison shoves the official out of the way and rams the edge of the steel chair to the back of Astraea’s leg! Over and over again, the top of the steel chair is being smashed around her leg! Someone stop Madison please! Madison prepares to swing the steel chair to Astraea’s leg, but Astraea kicks the steel chair away from Madison’s hands! The steel chair goes flying inside the ring as Madison could not believe what Astraea was able to do! Out of the blue, Astraea kicks Madison on her left hand! Madison yelps as she checks her left hand! Madison looks at Astraea as SPEAAAARRRRRRRRRRRR! ASTRAEA JORDAN CONNECTS WITH A SPEAR THAT RAMS MADISON THROUGH THE BARRICADE! ASTRAEA JORDAN JUST BROKE THE TIMEKEEPER’S BARRICADE WITH HER SUPERHUMAN STRENGTH! I WOULD NOT BE SURPRISED IF MADISON WAS SPLIT IN HALF! THE TWO WOMEN ARE IN THE RUBBLE AS NOT ONE OF THEM HAS GAINED THE STRENGTH TO GET UP! WAIT? IT SEEMS LIKE ASTRAEA IS TRYING TO USE ONE OF THE FAN’S STEEL CHAIRS TO PICK THEMSELVES UP! ASTRAEA STILL NEEDS TO LOOK OUT FOR HER INJURED LEFT LEG, SO I AM QUITE CURIOUS TO SEE IF SHE WILL HAVE TO CHANGE HER ENTIRE MOVESET TO HELP HER NOT USE HER LEFT LEG SO MUCH!

Gia Cervantes: Astraea is trying to shake some feeling back to her leg. She is trying her best to continue this match up! Madison has not gotten up! Astraea tries to get Madison up and SPINEBUSSSTEERRRR! ASTRAEA CONNECTS WITH A SPINEBUSTER ON A GROUP OF VACANT STEEL CHAIRS! ASTRAEA GETS IN A SEATED POSITION AS SHE TRIES TO CHECK ON HER LEG, BUT MADISON HAS NOT MOVED ONE BIT SINCE THAT SPEAR FROM ASTRAEA! ASTRAEA GETS RIGHT BACK UP AND GETS MADISON UP AND CONNECTS WITH A SNAP SUPLEX ON THE GROUP OF STEEL CHAIRS! THIS WAS ENOUGH TO MAKE MADISON FALL OFF THE STEEL CHAIRS AND HOLD HER BACK IN PAIN! WITH SOME FEELING BACK IN HER LEFT LEG, ASTRAEA GETS ON TOP OF THE BARRICADE! THE FANS ARE DISTANCING THEMSELVES FROM THE ACTION AND LETTING THESE WOMEN RIGHT AS ASTRAEA SITUATES HERSELF ON THE BARRICADE! I DO NOT KNOW WHAT SHE IS GOING WITH RIGHT HERE, BUT IT IS NOT GOING TO BE PRETTY! MOONSAULT! MOONSAULT ONTO MADISON KALINE! NO! MADISON THROWS A STEEL CHAIR TO ASTRAEA JORDAN’S FACE! ASTRAEA GOES FALLING ONTO HER BACK AS SHE IS HOLDING HER NOSE! OH MY GOD! ASTRAEA IS BLEEDING FROM HER NOSE AS MADISON IS LAUGHING AT HER!

SG1: Astraea keeps holding onto her nose, so I can assume that it is broken! Astraea focuses on her nose as she looks up to find Madison jumping off the barricade and connecting with a tornado DDT on Astraea! The tornado DDT connects while on the steel chairs! Both women are down as Madison gets to a seated position! Astraea is still down! Madison grabs Astraea by her hair and smashes her face against a steel chair! She goes to another steel chair and smashes Astraea’s face with it! She goes to another steel chair and smashes Astraea’s face on it! Astraea is down as the blood on her nose has increased more! Madison grabs Astraea again. Madison has Astraea in a suplex position! It looks like Madison is planning to suplex Astraea into the group of steel chairs! If Madison is able to connect with this move, then it might be the beginning of the end for Astraea Jordan! Madison Kaline has Astraea Jordan over and the suplex connects! Madison connects with the suplex on Astraea! No! Wait a minute? Astraea was able to catch herself and prevent the suplex from connecting! Astraea is still in this, but her left leg still seems to be an issue with her! Astraea is standing on one of the steel chairs! Madison has no clue! Madison turns around and Astraea with the Free Smoke, the reverse roundhouse kick on Madison! It connects as Madison goes falling to the concrete floor! Astraea holds onto her left leg before jumping and connecting with a hurricanrana!

Gia Cervantes: Madison spins around as Astraea connects with a back dropkick on Madison! Astraea picks up Madison for another military press! Astraea has Madison high enough for everyone to see her! Oh my! Madison is clawing Astraea’s eyes out! How in the hell is Madison doing that? She is clawing Astraea’s eyes out! This was enough for Madison to get out of the military press! Madison slides out of the the military press and stands behind Astraea! Astraea is constantly checking on her eyes to see if Madison did not rip anything, but Madison jumps on Astraea and connects with a jumping DDT, making Astraea pop up and land on her back! It seems like everytime Astraea seems to be picking up a little steam, Madison is there to stop it! Madison picks up Astraea and Astraea connects with a forearm on Madison! Madison connects with a forearm to Astraea! Astraea! Madison! Astraea! Madison! These two are throwing forearms at one another while moving up the stairs! This is not going to be a pretty sight! Madison and Astraea are moving up the stairs! These two are being careful when going up the stars! They know that one punch can knock them down the stars if they wanted to do that!

SG1: These two make it up the first set of stairs! This is just like how Madison tore her ACL several months ago! These two are on top of the first set of stairs! Astraea and Madison are throwing forearms at one another! Astraea goes and connects a knee to Madison’s stomach! Astraea throws Madison down the stairs! No! Madison holds onto the railing!

Astraea headbutts Madison back! Madison headbutts Astraea! Astraea headbutts Madison back! Madison! Astraea! Madison! Astraea! Madison! Astraea! HOLY S–T! Astraea Jordan goes falling down the stairs! Astraea rolls down the stairs and lands harshly on the concrete floor. Man, have the table turned? I think that Astraea could have injured her leg!

Gia Cervantes: She’s had a leg injury in the past, but hopefully, she doesn’t get another one! Look at here! Madison slides down the stair handle and connects with a crossbody on Astraea! Madison gets on top of Astraea and begins to throw some punches directed at her face! Madison then gets Astraea in a headlock position before connecting with a DDT on the stair step!

(“Party Goin’ Dumb” plays as Astraea Jordan lies on her back as she tries to get her breath back. Madison rolls away from her and out of the ring.)

Jasmine Peyton: The winner of this match, ASSSSSSTRRRRRRRRRAEEEEEEEEEEA JOOOOOOOOORDDDDDDDDDANNNNNNNNN!!

SG1: What a match! What a brutal grudge match! I am completely speechless! Madison Kaline thought she brought everything into this match with Astraea Jordan, but Astraea kept digging deep and used her strength to make it out of this match alive!

Gia Cervantes: Astraea Jordan now earns herself a title shot in the season premiere of Empire! She will face the Undisputed Women’s World Champion! By the looks of things right here, I can see that Astraea is in a good spot to become the next Women’s World Champion!

(The medical personnel are checking on Madison Kaline, who is still passed out, but out of the ring. Astraea Jordan smirks and blows a kiss to the heavens to her father, before celebrating in the ring.)

(Suddenly, “Smells Like Teen Spirit” by Nirvana plays all throughout the arena as the crowd ERUPTS with cheers and Diamond Cage steps out of the car donning a custom new dark hooded leather jacket with snakeskin embroidery, blue jeans and black vest underneath.

Crowd: AND I FORGET, JUST WHY I TASTE, OH YEAH, I GUESS IT MAKES ME SMILE, I FOUND IT HARD. IT’S HARD TO FIND THE , OH WELL , WHATEVER NEVERMIND!

Pierre: THIS IS ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE, THIS SEA OF HUMANITY IS PRACTICALLY SINGING CAGE TO BATTLE!!! THIS IS EVERYTHING HE’S WORKED FOR, THE NO WAY OUT MATCH AT WRATH OF THE DRAGON HAS FINALLY COME DOWN TO THIS MOMENT HERE TONIGHT IN OUR MAIN EVENT!!

(The music fades off as Cage stands in the ring as the crowd gives a big standing ovation as he takes the leather jacket and skull mask off and sits in the corner patiently waiting)

Pierre: The challenger looks focused here tonight, this match has a big fight feel and I can’t wait!

(The camera pans to a nearby staging where sound and audio speakers are setup along with a piano/keyboard, an acoustic guitar, and a stand center stage where a microphone is propped up. A bright spotlight from up above suddenly shoots on much to the delight of the crowd that gives a loud thunderous ovation for the band Bon Jovi. All the members, with the exception of Jon Bon Jovi, are now in their respective positions on stage, Phil X providing the acoustics, Hugh McDonald providing the bass, David Bryan on piano/keyboard, and Tico Torres on drums as the opening chords to “It’s My Life” begin. Soon a hidden platform beneath the center stage raises to the level of the rest of the stage with Jon Bon Jovi on the platform. The crowd erupts even more. Jon is wearing plain black t-shirt, blue jeans, with white tennis shoes, all smiles as he pumps his fists upward repeatedly. Pyrotechnics go off too, as the platform is now leveled. Jon steps up to the microphone.)

Jon/Crowd:

This ain’t a song for the broken-hearted
No silent prayer for the faith-departed
I ain’t gonna be just a face in the crowd
You’re gonna hear my voice
When I shout it out loud

(Rex McAllister soon appears from beyond the curtain on the entrance stage with the EAW World Championship belt strapped around his waist dressed in his normal in-ring attire sans his open-vest, and a merchandise t-shirt draped over his left shoulder. Rex pumps his fist and does nodding motion with his head to the tune of the music.)

Jon/Crowd:

It’s my life
It’s now or never
I ain’t gonna live forever
I just want to live while I’m alive
(It’s my life)

(Rex yells out at the crowd, then motions toward the band Bon Jovi with his finger as a sign of approval as he appears to be following along with the crowd with each lyric belted out by Jon.)

Jon/Crowd:

My heart is like an open highway
Like Frankie said
I did it my way
I just want to live while I’m alive
It’s my life

(Rex high fives random sets of fans from each side as he and Diamond Cage make eye contact for the first time as Bon Jovi continues with “It’s My Life”.)

Pierre McGuire: Rex McAllister. The EAW World Champion. A man who has gone through all comers put in his path since winning that very title at this year’s annual Grand Rampage in a classic match against that man, Diamond Cage, as well as Devan Dubian, and former champion, The Heart Break Gal! Many have said his days could be numbered, echoing the thoughts of the chaotic, suicidal maniac known over as “Explicit Content”, Diamond Cage! But this it! The main event of this magnificent Pain For Pride Festival week! Everything on the line! Rex McAllister vs Diamond Cage!

Deadprez: You done yet? Gee, just steal all the material why don’t you! It’s already more than enough that I have to share this broadcast with you, but yes indeed. Plenty on the line here. For Rex McAllister, one of the proclaimed faces of the EAW revolution trying to break through for the first time at a Pain For Pride after having come up short in his previous two appearances. As for Diamond Cage? It’s now or never. There can’t be anymore excuses if he is unable to secure the EAW Championship! It’s go all out, or go home!

Jon/Crowd:

It’s my life
It’s now or never
I ain’t gonna live forever
I just want to live while I’m alive
(It’s my life)
My heart is like an open highway
Like Frankie said, “I did it my way”
I just wanna live while I’m alive
It’s my life

Jon/Crowd:

Better stand tall when they’re calling you out
Don’t bend, don’t break, baby, don’t back down

(Rex climbs the nearest turnbuckle facing the entrance way and unstraps the EAW Championship belt and holds it up as the crowd roars to life even more)

Jon/Crowd:

It’s my life
It’s now or never
I ain’t gonna live forever
I just want to live while I’m alive
(It’s my life)
My heart is like an open highway
Like Frankie said, “I did it my way”
I just wanna live while I’m alive
It’s my life

It’s my life
It’s now or never
I ain’t gonna live forever
I just want to live while I’m alive
(It’s my life)
My heart is like an open highway
Like Frankie said, “I did it my way”
I just wanna live while I’m alive
It’s my life

(Rex motions toward the band Bon Jovi, pointing. Jon Bon Jovi returns the the motioning gesture as Rex claps his approval as the lights on the staging area go out and Bon Jovi takes their leave. Rex hops off the turnbuckle and readies for the match.)

(Camera transitions to Aaron Fitzpatrick standing in the ring as both Cage and Rex stand in opposite corners of the ring)

(DING! DING! DING!)

Fitzpatrick: THE FOLLOWING IS YOUR MAIN EVENT OF PAIN FOR PRIDE DAY 4 AND IT IS A TWO OUT OF THREE FALLS MATCH!! AND IT IS FOR THE ELITE ANSWERS WRESTLING WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP!

(Fireworks are shown going off all around the stadium as Cage is shown standing on the top turnbuckle raising the EAW Championship high in the air as the pyrotechnics continue to go off and a bloodied Cage leaves the ring and goes to the nearest barricade as fans in the front row embrace him, before he climbs the barricade and raises the EAW Championship high in the air once again as the camera eventually fades to black)
