PRE-SHOW

(“Position to Win” by Migos plays as an opening video plays featuring highlights from EAW in season 12 and the events leading up to Pain for Pride. In it includes the rise and fall of The 1%, Sienna Jade’s rise back to prominence, Malcolm Jones’ journey to the top, Noah Reigner’s dominance on Voltage, Serena Bennett and Jamie O’Hara’ respective Grand Rampage wins, as well as several other important plot points from each show. The package comes to an end as it transitions to the Mercedes Benz Arena where the pre-show panel is shown sitting together all the way up in the skybox section as they are excited and ready to begin discussing tonight’s festivities. We have Deadprez, Sofia Clark, Mike Lanza, and EAW Hall of Famer, Ashten Cross. A countdown timer also appears on the bottom corner signifying two hours until showtime.)

Sofia Clarke: Welcome back for the 12th time, to Pain for Pride! Every year it gets bigger and bigger and the stakes continue to rise and this year is no different. I’m just glad that I get the chance to discuss it with you all before it all goes down. I’m Sofia Clarke, here with my colleagues who need no introduction but will get one anyways. The former AWF World Champion Deadprez, journalist and fellow Fight Grid correspondent Mike Lanza, and last but certainly not least.. multiple time world champion and EVP of Intermedia Production, a man who has headlined this very show before.. Ashten Cross!

Ashten Cross: It’s great to be here to take part in the production for this event, it is truly a spectacle and although I’m not competing in the ring anymore, I can honestly say that as a member of that board I’m still competing every year as we look for ways to top the prior year. I think it’s safe to say we did that yet again.

Mike Lanza: Indeed you guys did, the production is off of the charts and the thing that is most important, the in ring product, is the most intrigued I have been for a set of Pain for Pride world title matches in a long time.

Deadprez: Year after year fans gather together from around the world to be able to witness this once in a lifetime type event and I have the privilege of doing so as well. This is one of those events where I can say this is less like work to me and more of me just being a fan. I am so proud of what the talent of EAW has been able to accomplish this season and tonight is just the icing on the cake, it’s fucking lit guys! Cheers! (Deadprez reaches down and pulls out a brown paper bag and takes a sip.

Sofia Clarke: Ummm.. what is that?

Deadprez: Oh that aint nothing but a lil bit of numb numb juice babygirl don’t worry let’s keep this thing rolling! What are you guys looking forward most out of today? Personally I’m tryna see Kassidy’s lips in person.

Mike Lanza: Well I’ll take the less perverted approach and say what intrigues me the most is the pending technical classic that is about to be put on display by Noah Reigner, Impact, and Rex McAllister. Rex McAllister is hands down the best technical wrestler in EAW so although this was Impact’s doing to make the match what it is, this is truly Rex’s element. Then you have Noah Reigner looking to pretty much etch his legacy in stone by defeating one of the greatest and most decorated stars of the modern era, as well as hands down THE most decorated star in the history of this company and a 1A-B GOAT, Impact. This could put him in those conversations for sure with a moment. And Impact’s journey to securing 9 reigns needs no explanation, it’s definitely an intriguing matchup for me.

Sofia Clarke: I’d have to say I’m looking forward to what all of the ladies have in store tonight. Not just the Universal Championship match, but the Specialists Match, New Breed, Tag, and all of the grudge matches. With the closing of Empire they have had to endure so much and scrutiny and uncertainty so I know they are looking to rove a lot of people wrong tonight and put on a show.

Ashten Cross: For me I’d have to say LC vs Scott. It’s kinda personal for me to be honest. If we go back to 2012 I was in The Enterprise with LC and we were pretty much undermined by Scott’s pal Matt Daniels, so this is like full circle for me.

Sofia Clarke: As someone who has actually been in one of the headlining matches on this show before? What can you say that experience is like?

Ashten Cross: Man… it’s like a dream come true. Especially given how early I was in my career at that point. I was in YWSE and then a year later here I am headlining the biggest show in the world. It’s truly an indescribable feeling. Walking through that curtain and down that ramp you don’t really get a chance to soak it all in and look at the 100k plus fans who all have their attention on you because you have to be in the zone and stay locked in, yet at the same time in the back of your mind you know that this is everything you ever dreamed of and know the journey it took to get here.

Deadprez: I unfortunately retired before Pain for Pride became a concept, but it’s amazing to see how this took form into the juggernaut that it is today. Back in AWF, and Amber and Ryan can attest to this… none of us really took EAW serious. Then when it became a brand under AWF it was more like the C-Brand for a while, but it rose as a grassroots movement and captured the attention of many. It took advantage of the sinking ship that was AWF at the time and became this hue thing. Shid yall don’t even remember the ORIGINAL Pain for Pride that was supposed to happen with Mak vs Ronn as the main event. But here we are today and this is hands down the one event that people would kill to be able to say they were a part of. I think we can drink to that! (Deadprez takes another swig)

Mike Lanza: The business continues to evolve and I think that is also a testament to the resiliency of EAW. This is a company that has been counted out more times than I can keep count of and yet they always made it out of the fire, rebuilt themselves, and adapted with the times and that is what separated EAW from the ACW’s and CWF’s and LEGION’s of it’s earlier time. That is also what will continue to separate EAW from any attempt at competing.

Ashten Cross: You can thank me for that. :dave:

Sofia Clarke: Let’s switch gears for a second and talk abo–

Deadprez: You can switch gears with me any time!

(The whole panel collectively pauses and looks at him awkwardly)

Sofia Clarke: Let’s stay focused. So as we know so far there have been twelve whole Pain or Prides and that makes for a whole lot of memorable moments. I wanted to ask you guys what is YOUR favorite Pain for Pride moment of all time? Mine goes back to Pain for Pride 1, seeing Sabina defeat Jenny, Alexa, and Jaden for the Vixen’s Championship. A lot of people give all of the credit to the Camerons and Kendras of the world for being pioneers of womens wrestling and deservedly so, taking nothing away from them, but Sabina was very much so the bridge between the Dirti Diva/Jenny/Curious Girl era and the Kendra Shamez/Cameron Ella Ava era. You had this girl who was pretty much the female Masters in my opinion except she lasted longer than he did and captured the championship multiple times and this was before ever getting with Mak. I may or may not have had a poster of her hanging on my wall in high school!

Ashten Cross: My favorite moment is definitely my debut. I was a rookie facing two hall of famers in a world title match, you honestly can’t ask for much more than that.

Mike Lanza: I’m going to go with last year’s Pain for Pride actually. Diamond Cage and Rex McAllister in 2018’s match of the year. It was truly a phenomenal match from top to bottom and it was something that cemented Cage as an all time great in EAW. The atmosphere was unlike anything ever experienced before, it was just an all around amazing production.

Deadprez: Ima go with Chainstein vs Cuck U Fena at Pain for Pride 1. If you wanna talk about classics and you like seeing the blicky get sprayed in matches then that’s the match for you!

Sofia Clarke: Some great and interesting choices. Up next we’re going to run down the card and make our predictions for each match. But before we do that let’s get into our first set of action for the night! A steel cage match!

Mike Lanza: Oh this is definitely gonna drive me to drink.. hey Prez you got an extra cup?

(The camera cuts to Gina Romano in the ring who looks uncomfortable as a Steel Cage begins to lower slowly around her.)

Talib Bari: This ain’t the only time Gina has been in a cage! RAWR!

Eve: Get your mind out the gutter Talib! This cage is about to bare witness to one of the greatest scenes of brutality in EAW history!

Talib Bari: You have clearly never seen what happens inside my cage Eve. :mjgrin:

Gina Romano: The following contest… is a STEEL CAGE MATCH!!! And it is for the Big Boogie Bhampionship!!!

(“La Marmelade de Ma Grand Mere” by Florent Caubien hits to cheers from the crowd.)

Gina Romano: Introducing first the challenger… From Triffouillis-les-Oies, France weighing in at 204 pounds… “The Butter Knife”… he is “THE UNVICTORIOUS” PRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRROVENCAL!!!!

(Provencal comes out slapping the hands of fans in the crowd as he makes his way to the ring.)

Eve: I love Provencal! He’s so nice!

Talib Bari: I hate nice people and hope that he dies.

(“If Ya Smell” By Adam Massare hits as the entire crowd begins to smell something.)

Gina Romano: And his opponent from Jacksonville, Florida weighing in at 260 pounds… he is the BIG BOOGIE BHAMPION… THE WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOGIEMAN!!!!

(Woogieman is shown coming out to the ring in all his majestic glory carrying the most prestigious championship in EAW history.)

Eve: I feel like we are witnessing something that you only see once in a generation.

Talib Bari: I agree. This match is literally more important than the so-called main events. This is what the people came to see.

(DING! DING! DING!)

Eve: We are underway and we should remind you that this match can only be won by escaping the cage with both feet touching the floor.

Talib Bari: Very unprofessional of Gina to not even go over the rules. Woogieman and Provencal look so confused. Woogieman takes a wild swing at Provencal with a hard right hand! But Provencal ducks! Woogieman staggers past with the momentum from that shot as he nearly crashes face first into the cage. Provencal grabs him from behind. And sends Woogie into the cage scraping his face into the steel! Woogie with a back elbow shot catching Provencal on the side of the head sending him back into the ring. Woogie quickly pulls himself away from the side of the cage as he holds his scraped up face with one hand. Woogie pats his face wiping small traces of blood away before he begins to go in on Provencal! He charges in! THESZ PRESS! And now Woogieman with mounted punches into the face of Provencal! LEFT! RIGHT! LEFT! RIGHT! LEFT! RIGHT! AGAIN AND AGAIN!

Eve: Woogieman shoves his hand disrespectfully down into the face of Provencal smashing his nose… But Provencal bites into Woogie’s finger! Woogie yelps as he pulls his hand back in recoil. Provencal lunges forward as both men wrestle on the ground throwing every foot, hand, and tooth at each other in a mad fury. Provencal back up… But Woogie grabs his leg pulling him right back down! Provencal collapses but catches Woogie right in the jaw with a right hand! Both men down as they slowly rise to their feet in opposite corners. Both men charge in! Double clothesline! Both men connect with a Clothesline taking each other back down once again! And Woogieman grabs the hair of Provencal as he falls yanking the whole man down to the mat painfully! Woogie still has hold of the hair as he drags Provencal over to him and begins to deliver more shots to the already bruised face of Provencal! This man going to end up with a black eye!

Talib Bari: Woogieman pulls up Provencal by the hair and throws him face first into the steel links of the cage! The cage sways with the pressure of the man being thrown into it as it lurches forward looking almost like it will break. Only to shoot back launching Provencal back into the ring crashing down onto his back in pain. Provencal now the one holding his face in pain. Did someone sharpen the steel of this cage or what? These two getting bruised, sliced, and bloody here tonight! And it’s all for the Big Boogie Bhampionship! That most prestigious prize! But Provencal will not give up as he is back up on his feet. But Woogie with another shot to the skull! Woogie is fighting here tonight to show that he is a true champion! There is too much at stake! He wants to hurt Provencal and will not stop until he can no longer get back up! Woogie slams Provencal’s face hard into the turnbuckle padding. And again. And again! Provencal’s eyes swelling up now from this beating. Can he even see?

Eve: And Woogie begins to grind Provencal’s face right into the side of the cage! Blood begins to trickle from small cuts on Provencal’s forehead! Provencal screams in pain as he tries to break free! But Woogie will not stop! Provencal with a mule kick…

Talib Bari: LOW BLOW CONNECTS! Woogie is on the ground in pain! Provencal staggers back desperate to make a comeback as he falls backwards tripping over Woogie and hitting his head on the mat. Woogie slithers out from under him. But Provencal grabs him from behind by the tights! Woogie wrenches himself free but Provencal pulls himself back up using the tights of Woogie and begins to fight back with a series of right hands staggering Woogie back against the cage! Woogie looks scared now as he begins to climb up the cage! Provencal follows grabbing at Woogieman’s tights again trying to pull him back down but Woogie kicks him away! Provencal falls! But he lands on his feet and begins to climb the ropes after Woogie again! Woogie now on the top of the cage… But Provencal grabs his leg! Woogie can’t kick him off! Provencal with a Dragon Screw sending Woogie flipping off the top of the cage! Holy shit!!!

Eve: WOOGIE JUST FLIPPED AND THROWN FROM THE TOP OF THE CAGE AS HE SMASHES ONTO THE CANVAS OF THE RING! GOD DAMN HE FELL A LONG ASS WAY AND WITH THE ADDED VELOCITY OF THAT DRAGON SCREW! HE IS AS GOOD AS DEAD! Provencal now up on top of the cage lying across the steel beam! Come on Provy baby! You can do it!

Talib Bari: But Provencal looks dazed! He rolls to one side! Shit he is going to fall! No he caught himself! That was close! But if he falls off the right side he just might win the match! Do it! COMMIT DAT! IT’S WORTH IT! YOU MAY BREAK YOUR NECK BUT YOU WILL BE BIG BOOGIE BHAMPION! IT’S WORTH THE COST!

Eve: Provencal pulling himself up to his feet using the ropes tethered to the top of the cage! He looks down towards the outside… Then he looks again into the ring at Woogieman! Don’t do it Provencal! NO!

Talib Bari: PROVENCAL LEAPS! FLYING SPLASH OFF THE TOP OF THE CAGE ONTO WOOGIEMAN! BAH GAWD ALMIGHTY HE CRUSHED HIM!

Crowd: HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT!

Eve: Woogieman crushed worse than Provencal is by his pregnant wife with the latest members of his massive litter! Provencal still alive as he crawls towards the door! How can this man still be going! He can barely see out those bruised eyes but he is crawling! Trying to make it to the gateway! The glory that awaits him on the other side of the door! Slowly he crawls as he begs the outside official to open the door! And he does so! Wait what is this?!?!

Talib Bari: One of Provencal’s children appears outside the door of the cage urging their daddy on to make it! And another! And another! Look at all of them! They are all jumping the barricade and security isn’t doing a damn thing! With each one of his kids that appears Provencal manages to pull himself further towards the door! He is so close now! One of his kids reaches out a hand into the ring and he grabs onto it! This has progressed from heartwarming to cheating! Somebody stop this man!

Eve: :noah:

Talib Bari: Provencal crawling between the ropes as his kids pull him to the outside! IT’S OVER!

Eve: NO! WOOGIEMAN KICKS THE HAND OF PROVENCAL’S KID! HIS KID FALLS OVER KNOCKING THE ENTIRE LITTER OVER! WOOGIE CURB STOMPS PROVENCAL’S HEAD AND CLIMBS OUT OF THE RING WITH A SHIT EATING GRIN ON HIS FACE!

(DING! DING! DING!)

Gina Romano: HERE IS YOUR WINNER… AND STILLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL BIG BOOOGIE BHAMPION… WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOGIEMAN!!!

(“If Ya Smell” by Adam Massare hits as the crowd collapses in shock from what has just occurred fanning themselves with their hats trying to calm themselves down.)

Eve: I can’t believe it! We have witnessed a title being retained at Pain for Pride! How can this be?

Talib Bari: I am amazed as well as you Eve. Woogieman has established himself as the absolute top of the mountain here in EAW! But at what cost to his soul?!?!?

Eve: Absolutely disgusting. He won but he ruined this family moment. It could have been a heartwarming moment for all!

Talib Bari: Wow you really are on one tonight huh Eve? Just enjoy it. The age of the Big Boogie Bhampion is upon us!!! :blessed:

(The camera cuts back to the pre-show panel all who have different looks on their faces at what they just witnessed)

Deadprez: Five stars! What a classic!

Ashten Cross: This is Woogieman’s world and we’re just living in it!

(Mike Lanza is shown looking visibly drained and disgusted)

Mike Lanza: EAW does not pay me enough to endure this kind of mockery to the sport. The sad thing about it is you’re pretty much responsible for this aren’t you Ashten? You were the NEO commissioner during Woogie’s early days.

Ashten Cross: My name is Bennett and I ain’t in it.

Deadprez: Lighten up man this is Pain for Pride it’s room for fun! You gonna get your little mat classics and bingo hall-esque death matches soon enough don’t worry.

Ashten Cross: I almost forgot we’re dealing with Smarkmaster Flex over here.

Mike Lanza: Yeah whatever, what’s next Sofia?

Sofia Clarke: We’ve talked about the history of this event, gone through our favorite moments, witnessed a five star match, now it’s time for predictions of the evening!

(A graphic of Drake King vs Terry Chambers appears on the screen)

Mike Lanza: I’d like to be the first to give my prediction and before I do I want to apologize to Drake King. Last time I was involved in one of these panels it was for Midsummer Massacre 2018 and Drake King was all but a rookie in the battle royal and there wasn’t one mention of him from me or any of my colleagues that night in predicting him to win or even shedding any spotlight on him. To be fair he wasn’t nearly as good as he is today but that is just a testament to how much work he put in to prove us all wrong. He is in a way better position than anybody else from that battle royal he partook in last year and I can easily see him being a main eventer by the conclusion of season 13. That being said, I’m not making the same mistake twice by beting against him.. I’m going with Drake King.

Ashten Cross: Terry is somebody who has been in EAW for half a decade now, not one piece of gold to his name. It’s now or never and I think he finally has that taste of success that we all have been waiting for him to achieve.

Deadprez: I’m with you Cross, Terry has always been his own worst enemy in the sense that he just couldn’t stay consistent and couldn’t stay in the damn ring without going on a sudden leave. Mans finally discovered Plan B and is living his best life, Terry in 6!

Sophia Clarke: I got two letters that Drake might not be fond of but…. O.K. Everything is going to be A-Okay for Drake because I’m predicting a successful defense for the future legend!

(A graphic of Mark Michaels vs Ms. Extreme appears on the screen)

Ashten Cross: Mark been on some psychobabble shit lately throwing shots at my fellow colleagues so Ms. Extreme for the win. :respek:

Deadprez: I’m going with Ms. Extreme too, she’s been in a zone and has carved a lane for herself that several others can only dream of. She also broke some fucking bozo’s manufactured ass record earlier this week, now she gets to shatter it by defeating Mark.

Mike Lanza: I’m going to go with Mark. I think he’ll do what you guys think Terry will, and that’s use years worth of hardship and shortcomings to will his way to a win at the biggest stage of them all.

Sofia: I’m never one to vote against girl power and Ms. Extreme is a fierce bitch, no way she’s dropping the title tonight!

(A graphic of Andrea Valentine vs Celes Dumont appears on the screen)

Mike Lanza: Two words. Andrea… Valentine. The future world champion will not see her reign come to an end by such mediocrity that’s for sure.

Deadprez: I’m with you on that one, she’s gonna clean that weirdo’s clock.

Ashten Cross: Go Andrea.

Sofia Clarke: For the first time we’re all on the same page! I have a soft spot for Andrea and I’m rooting for her success. I know she can do it. Besides, what’s Celes compared to the comp she faced last year and won?

(A graphic of Jack Ripley vs Osamu Arcichida flashes)

Deadprez: Line em up.. Shoot em down! Jack always wins!

Ashten Cross: Wrong gun catchphras you fucking idiot. It’s pew pew pew. And them bullets and gon do a damn thing to Teflon Osamu.

Mike Lanza: Quite frankly Jack Ripley has given me a bigger sample size than Osamu has. Consistency is the key to victory, and Jack has that over Osamu.

Sofia Clarke: If Osamu did that to Kinkade I can only imagine what he’ll do to Ripley, I’m going with him.

(A graphic of SOSA Henderson vs Felix Hartley appears on the screen)

Ashten Cross: I must say, the board is incredibly high on Felix, she hasn’t been beaten one on one yet, all the momentum is in her favor but we can’t overlook the physical aspect of it all. It’s a double edged sword. I think I’ll go with SOSA to hand her the first singles loss of her EAW career.

Mike Lanza: I’ve had the pleasure of following Felix on the independent scene in several companies and I must say that she is a talent that is as rare as they come, she moves the needle and can be a generational type talent if she stays motivated, but much like her trainer Lexi Sheckler, she’s hot and cold. Here today and gone tomorrow. Quite frankly this title shot is too soon for her and she needs to prove herself more. Let’s not forget her trainer also had a singles winning streak back in REVOLT and lost when it mattered and disappeared. I predict the same for the underling. SOSA retains.

Sofia Clarke: Well that’s harsh.

Deadprez: Man fuck allat, Felix got this in the bag, and since she got a thing for brothas I’m willing to celebrate the victory with her after the match. :mjlit:

Sofia Clarke: ANYWAYS. I’m going with Felix and keeping the girl power trend going. She’s the only person with pinfall victories over both Sienna Jade and Serena Bennett and one of them will be our respective Universal Women’s Champ tonight, she’s more than capable. On another note, I’m getting word that another match is beginning to start, let’s take you ringside as the pre-show continues to roll on!

(The camera cuts to Stephie Love, who is standing in the middle of the ring.)

Stephie Love: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SCHEDULED FOR

Crowd: ONE FALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(“My Way” by Limp Bizkit plays to booming boos from around the arena as Ryan Wilson comes out accompanied by Sylvain Primeau and Tony St-Michel. Ryan whispers in both men’s ear and both of them nod as they go back backstage.)

Stephie Love: INTRODUCING FIRST, FROM MONTREAL QUEBEC CANADA, WEIGHING IN AT 200 POUNDS…THE AGENT OF CHAOS, RYAN…WILSON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Flannery McCoy: It’s safe to say Ryan Wilson has become impatient with Shaker Jones this whole week. The more these two men went at it, and the more Shaker spoke, the more it angered Ryan.

Stew-O: There certainly won’t be any remorse between these two former teammates. Both men will be trying to kill each other tonight.

(Ryan Wilson enters the ring and goes to the top rope as the boos grow louder. Ryan moves around the ring as “My Way” is quickly interrupted by “I Love It Loud” by Kiss. The boos are quickly replaced by cheers as Shaker Jones comes out to the stage. He runs his hand through his hair before starting his long walk to the ring.)

Stephie Love: AND HIS OPPONENT, FROM INGLIS, MANITOBA, CANADA, WEIGHING IN AT 250 POUNDS…THE PUNK ROCK COUNTRY BOY, SHAKER…JONES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Flannery McCoy: Shaker, compared to Ryan this week, has been pretty calm when it comes to talking about this match at Pain For Pride.

Stew-O: Could that possibly factor into this match? While Ryan is going full speed ahead, I think Shaker is taking this like every other match. Mindset will come into play.

(Shaker Jones enters the ring and completely ignores Ryan as he takes off his jacket and moves to his corner. “I Love It Loud” fades off as both men stare a hole into each other)

(DING! DING! DING!)

Flannery McCoy: This match is officially underway and both men have been begging to get their hands on each other and now this is their chance. Shaker and Ryan locking up; both men vigorously pushing each other back and forth in the ring. Shaker’s got him in a headlock as Ryan struggles to get out. Ryan pushing Shaker into the ropes forcing a break, BUT RYAN WITH A FOREARM TO SHAKER! And this match has gone full speed ahead as Shaker now taking advantage, nailing Ryan with forearms of his own repeatedly! Shaker with a Irish whip off the ropes, “CANADIAN CLOTHESLINE” BY SHAKER KNOCKING RYAN DOWN! Shaker bringing Ryan up, OH RYAN PUNCHING SHAKER IN THE GUT forcing Shaker back, BUT SHAKER RUNNING TO RYAN- RYAN WITH A CALF KICK! BUT SHAKER IS STILL UP, he quickly retaliates with a punch as he falls to a knee! Ryan grabbing Shaker! SWINGING NECKBREAKER! Ryan going for the pin on a fallen Shaker Jones!

Ref: ONE!

Stew-O: KICKOUT! But Ryan not stopping the momentum as he jumps off the ropes, LIONSAULT- NO SHAKER GOT THE KNEES UP! RYAN FALLING OVER AS SHAKER TAKES THE OPPORTUNITY, ANACONDA VICE! SHAKER’S GOT “CASEY JONES” LOCKED IN AS RYAN TRIES TO GET A GASP OF AIR OUT!

Flannery McCoy: Ryan trying furiously to punch Shaker in the arm, OH BUT RYAN GRABBING SHAKER’S HEAD AND REELING IT BACK! RYAN BRINGS HIS KNEE UP TO THE BACK OF SHAKER’S HEAD! Shaker letting go of the anaconda vice and rolling out of the ring, Ryan sliding out of the ring following Shaker. Ryan grabbing Shaker- SHAKER PUSHING RYAN BACK FIRST INTO THE RINGPOST!

Stew-O: Shaker throwing Ryan in the ring as he gets in himself. Shaker moving back as Ryan stumbles up to his feet, JUMPING CUTTER- NO RYAN PUSHING HIM AWAY!!! Shaker moving forward as Ryan closes in on Shaker… SUPER RELEASE GERMAN SUPLEX! Shaker rolling back, Ryan I think is looking to finish this off! He’s putting him into a powerbomb position, BUT SHAKER WITH HIS PURE STRENGTH LIFTING RYAN OVER HIS HEAD! Ryan trips into the corner as Shaker waits in the other… A BIG CLOTHESLINE BY SHAKER TO RYAN IN THE CORNER!

Flannery McCoy: Shaker stomping away at Ryan now and the ref finally coming in and splitting them apart, BUT SHAKER ISN’T DONE! SHAKER CONTINUES STOMPING AWAY AT RYAN. Ryan looks lifeless as Shaker moves back. A BIG BOOT TO THE CORNER IMPALING RYAN! Shaker dragging him to the center of the ring.. SHAKER WITH A STOMP- NO RYAN GRABBING THE FOOT OF SHAKER! Ryan pushing himself back still holding onto Shaker’s foot, Ryan getting to his feet, RYAN SWEEPING SHAKER’S OTHER LEG BRINGING HIM DOWN, SINGLE LEG DDT! Ryan, ANOTHER- NO SHAKER KICKS THE FACE OF RYAN!

Stew-O: :damn:!!! Ryan putting the foot down, OH A STOMP TO THE LEG OF SHAKER! Ryan up to the top rope, SWANTON BOMB! All the air was pushed out of Shaker with that top rope move by Ryan! Ryan irishwhipping Shaker- NO SHAKER PULLING BACK AND IRISH WHIPPING RYAN, LOU THESZ PRESS- NO RYAN CAUGHT AS HE TRIES TO PUSH SHAKER ONTO THE GROUND! RYAN SUSPENDED IN MID-AIR, POWERBOMB BY SHAKER, ELBOW DROP TO THE GROIN! “SLEDGE-O-MATIC” CONNECTS! Ryan clutching his Wilsons as Shaker looks with a smile! A KNEE DROP TO RYAN STRAIGHTENING HIM OUT! Ryan trying to roll out of the ring again but Shaker has him before he can! Shaker irishwhipping Ryan into the corner, CARTWHEEL, “SUPA DUPA KICK!” Ryan moving out of the corner, Ryan taking Shaker by surprise running to Shaker, SHAKER WITH A GUTWRENCH POWERBOMB! “SIDEWINDER” CONNECTS AS SHAKER GOES FOR THE PIN!

Ref: ONE! TWO!

Flannery McCoy: KICK OUT BY RYAN WILSON LEAVING SHAKER IN SHOCK! Shaker doesn’t know what to do, OH A ELBOW DROP- NOBODY HOME AS RYAN MOVES OUT OF THE WAY!

Stew-O: Ryan now grabbing Shaker by the legs! SCORPION CROSSLOCK! Ryan now locking Shaker into a submission of his own! But Shaker is too close to the ropes! HE CAN’T USE HIS ARMS, SHAKER BITING THE ROPES! I mean I guess it’s a rope break because the ref says so!

Flannery McCoy: Both men willing to do anything to win this match! Ryan NOW HE’S GOING DOWN ON SHAKER GRABBING HIM BY THE HAIR AND NAILING HIM WITH PUNCH AFTER PUNCH!

Stew-O: The ref breaking them apart here as Shaker falls limp to the floor Ryan messing with the crowd as Shaker is slowly getting up!! RYAN, SUPERMAN PUNCH-

Flannery McCoy: NO SHAKER DODGES UNDER HIM!

Stew-O: Shaker rebounding off the ropes!!! FLYING FOREARM SMASH! Ryan knocked straight down to the ground! Shaker bringing Ryan up!!! OH A CLOTHESLINE! BUT IT’S INEFFECTIVE AS SHAKER BARELY HAS ANY STRENGTH LEFT IN HIS BODY!

Flannery McCoy: RYAN WITH A CALF KICK BRINGING BOTH MEN DOWN! Ryan finally getting control back as he stumbles up to his feet. Shaker being brought up by Ryan with a struggle as both men are out of breath!! OH RYAN WITH A GUT KICK BRINGING SHAKER TO A KNEE! Ryan going to the top rope here looking for something big-

Stew-O: SHAKER FOLLOWS AS HE JUMPS UP TO THE TOP ROPE! Both men are going back and forth on the top rope!!!

Flannery McCoy: OH SHAKER DIGGING HIS ELBOW INTO THE FOREHEAD OF RYAN! Oh no Shaker turning around, “MR. JONES’ WILD RIDE!” SHAKER NAILING RYAN WITH A STUNNER OFF THE TOP ROPE! The ref checking up on Ryan as Shaker is looking for something else-

Stew-O: WHAT?!?!?!?

Crowd: BOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Stew-O: IT’S SYLVAIN AND TONY! THE MEMBERS OF THE FAMILY COMING IN AND DISTRACTING SHAKER!!! Shaker’s ignoring them… BUT IT’S TOO LATE! RYAN, GAME OVER! RYAN CONNECTS WITH THE STUNNER! RYAN FALLING RIGHT INTO THE PIN AS THE CROWD IS IN ABSOLUTE SHOCK!

Ref: ONE! TWO! THREE!

(“My Way” plays up but boos deafen it out as Ryan is helped to his feet by Sylvain Primeau and Tony St-Michel. Both men raise his hands as Ryan quickly rolls out of the ring in shock.)

Stephie Love: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN YOUR WINNER, RYAN…WILSON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Flannery McCoy: HE’S DONE IT! RYAN HAS PROVED NOT JUST SHAKER, BUT EVERYONE IN ATTENDANCE WRONG! This will certainly be a Pain For Pride moment for him.

Stew-O: Sure this was a Pain For Pride moment for Ryan but not Shaker. Shaker will definitely remember this.

(Camera cuts back to the panel)

Sofia Clarke: Welcome back! We are only ten minutes away from the big show! Let’s keep these predictions rolling.

(A graphic of Lethal Consequences vs Scott Diamond appears on the screen)

Ashten Cross: For LC, this is everything to him. The whole trajectory of his career all goes back to his conflict with Matt Daniels. When LC had control of this company in 2012, Matt Daniels pulled a slick move by selling his shares to DEDEDE under the table. DEDEDE would then return and face LC for complete control of the company, defeated him, and fired him. LC never recovered and his legacy took a huge hit over the years, the regimes that oversaw his returns from 2013-2017 never quite understood him and that is why he calls himself “most unique” and “blue moon”, because he is truly not a talent that everyone quite gets. When he returned last year Matt was once again a thorn in his side and eventually once again stripped his power away. But he’s worked his ass off over the past year to get back to this point and to give the final middle finger to the man who has done more damage to his career than anyone else, and defeating his friend in the process. This means a lot more to LC than it does to Scott, and that’s why LC will win.

Deadprez: Well now that you put it that way… I’m going with LC too!

Mike Lanza: Emotion and passion aside, the size difference between the two is quite obvious, I see no outcome other than Scott dominating and winning.

Sofia Clarke: I think I’m gonna go with Scott too. :lupe:

(A graphic of Tyler Wolfe vs Kendra Shamez appears on the screen)

Sofia Clarke: Just like I said about Ms. Extreme, Tyler is a fierce bitch! I see her walking out with the victory tonight.

Deadprez: If Sher’s bum ass can beat Kendra at the biggest stage of em all, I don’t see why Tyler can’t be able to.

Ashten Cross: Kendra got this.

Mike Lanza: I’m going to go with the legend in the match, Kendra showed her abilities at The Palace against Serena, she’ll do the same tonight against Tyler.

(A graphic of The Wildcards vs Heavenly Hell vs The Flo Bros vs The Revolution appears on the screen)

Sofia Clarke: Go Heavenly Hell!

Deadprez: Minerva got the cake and I heard she a freak freak and I’m tryna see what it do so ima go with them as well!

Mike Lanza: The Revolution are right there with Drake King as acts who we need to keep an eye on in the future. I think the future is now, so I’m going with them.

Ashten Cross: Ye nah. Payne for Pride 2 ft. Myles or Myles for Pride, however way you slice it.. I’m going with them!

(Amber Keys vs Cleopatra appears on the screen)

Mike Lanza: Amber gets her PFP moment after 10 years, I’m calling it.

Sofia Clarke: Cleopatra needs a definitive win to solidify this return run, and what better way to do that than to defeat the Dirti Diva?

Deadprez: Amber Keys cuz AWF4Life.

Ashten Cross: Cleo got it in the bag.

(A cash in the vault graphic appears on the screen)

Deadprez: It’s Fire Shark SZN fuck what you heard!

Mike Lanza: The Visual Prophet in my opinion is in the lead for rookie of the year so far. This is his moment and thi is what will solidify that campaign.

Ashten Cross: Not if Charlie Marr has anything to say about it!

Sofia Clarke: Obviously Harlow or Raven will be walking out victorious.

(Xavier Williams vs Cameron Ella Ava appears on the screen)

Mike Lanza: Two all time greats go head to head for bragging rights. I honestly can’t call this one, Cameron is a GOAT as is Xavier, this is too close to call for me..

Deadprez: I’m going with Cam cuz she got them yams! No disrespect to Jamie :lupe:. But I think she’ll follow in her hubbies footsteps by defeating Xavier at Pain for Pride.

Ashten Cross: Xavier losing to a female :mjlol:. Let’s be real he didn’t work his ass off to make a return to come back and lose, he has something to prove and unfortunately Cam will be the recipient of that.

Sofia Clarke: Where is your YWWA pride?

Ashten Cross: That was Camille so fuck dat bih. :mjpls:

Sofia Clarke: Smh… anyways you already know who I’m going with.

(Kassidy Heart vs Ahren Fournier appears on the screen)

Deadprez: BAAAAAAAAAA BAAAAAAAAAA BAAAAAAAAAAAA

Sofia Clarke: Well I guess that answers it for him…

Michael Lanza: Kassidy Heart has gone through hell and back dealing with Ahren and I think tonight is the night she finally hits that switch and shows us a side of her that we have never seen before.

Ashten Cross: I think they both kill each other tbh. Neither one of them have proven that they can hang on their own or without one another for that matter. They cancel each other out, isn’t that like PEMDAS or some shit?

Sofia Clarke: And yet another wild take from our EVP of Intermedia Production! What does that even mean by the way?

Ashten Cross: Shiiiddd hell if I know, all I know is the check is good.

Sofia Clarke: Well alright, I got Kassidy in this one. As someone who has been a victim of an abusive relationship before it’s truly a hard thing to watch what she’s endured over the past few months. She’s a strong woman so I know she’s going to overcome it tonight.

(On the bottom of the screen it shows that there is only 2 minutes left until the show)

Sofia Clarke: 2 minute warning!

(Cage vs TLA graphic appears on the screen)

Mike Lanza: I saw this man conquer the world last year at PFP Festival, there is no way I’m betting against him on this stage. Cage has shown me a lot more in these situations than TLA ever has.

Ashten Cross: I’m going with TLA. Cage isn’t hungry and TLA has starved for too long in this dog eat dog world, TLA will come out triumphant.

Deadprez: Well I need a free pass to the poon palace so ima say TLA regardless.

Sofia Clarke: Well I don’t support misogynist pigs so I WON’T be choosing TLA.

Deadprez: Lets be real, Cage’s angry ass is more likely to slap a chick than TLA is.

(30 seconds remain)

Sofia Clarke: Whatever. Okay they’re screaming in my ear to wrap this up before we can even get to the world title matches so quick! Name the four people you think will be walking out of Pain for Pride as the respective world champions!

Mike Lanza: The Visual Prophet, Darkane, Chris Elite, and Kassidy Heart. That’s right I’m predicting TWO cash ins tonight!

Ashten Cross: If there’s anybody who knows how to steal somebody’s moment it’s Mr. DEDEDE, trust me I know. :mjcry: So ima go with him, Chris Elite, Sienna Jade, and Noah Reigner.

Deadprez: Top ledge cunt flog season returns! Jamie O’Hara! Sienna Bennett! (the panel looks at him confused) Malcolm Jones! Rex McAllister!

Sofia Clarke: I’m gonna go with Sienna, Malcolm, Theron, and Noah! That’s all the time we have for tonight, we gotta make our way back down! Hope all of you at home has enjoyed this preshow, make sure to buy the actual event if you haven’t or get a subscription to the EAW Network! Now let’s get the biggest event of the year started!

DAY ONE

( EAW Intro plays )

( Broadcast opens up to Mercedes Benz Stadium, where 77,000 members of the EAW Universe are riled up and still entering the venue – many of them prepared to lose their absolute minds for the opening festivities. )

( The camera pans across the audience, and we get a view of the Pain for Pride XII stage with the minitron modeled after a crystal colored Richard Mille Tourbillon RM 56-02 Sapphire. A massive widescreen titantron sits above the minitron. The background stage set up are massive displays of a cluster of state-of-the-art, high definition OLED ‘diamonds’ over 50 ft tall which are able to change color and display images of any kind as well as emit vibrant, colourful hues.

The sides of the stage are decked out in super cars, including — Lamborghini Aventadors of multiple colors, 2020 Mustang Shelby GT500, mayo colored Aston Martin Valhalla, Mercedes S-Class flanking the farthest ends of the left stage, Bentley Truck in the far right end of the stage. Vibrant 2019 Maserati Ghibli, and a Matte Black Ferrari, among many others. A massive luxurious fountain of money also sits on the left side of the stage, spouting up hundred-dollar-bills into its own pool, reeling the bills stacked at the bottom into the center and spouting them up again.

The stage floor, the ramp, the ring posts and two out of four of the ring aprons are LED covered panels as per the usual EAW event. Standing in the ring is Showdown Ring Announcer, Gina Romano, who is standing by with a microphone in hand. )

Gina Romano: WELCOME EVERYBODY TO PAIN FOR PRIDE!!!!!!

( The sea of humanity lets off a thunderous roar. )

Gina Romano: Here with a live band to sing “America, The Beautiful”, making her highly anticipated musical debut……
……
……
…….. THE CO-COMMISSIONER OF SUNDAY NIGHT VOLTAGE, VEENA ADAMS!!!!

( Veena Adams walks out to the stage where a live band is already prepared. She is dressed in a “Make America Great Again” jumpsuit with American Flag clip-on wings on her back, and a stars & stripes fanny pack on her waist. She has a big confident smile on her face – and the audience LOSES IT with thunderous boos. )

Veena Adams: *warms up vocals*

Crowd: BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!

( The live band begins to play the instruments to “America, The Beautiful” , and Veena is seeping in her moment of glory before slowly lifting the microphone to her lips. )

Veena Adams: ♪ O beautiful for spacious skies, for amber waves of grain ♪
♪ For purple mountain majesties, above–

Gina Romano: SIKE!!!!

( “America The Beautiful” cuts off, causing Veena’s jaw to drop in shock. The live band immediately switches to the following:

( Following this, Quavo, Offset and Takeoff of The Migos rush out to the stage in excitement, drawing a huge reaction from the crowd. They begin performing ‘Position To Win’ while a stunned Veena Adams stands there gawking at them in catatonic shock. )

Quavo: ♪ STEPPIN’ UP, ALWAYS TAKE THE RISK ♪
♪ LIVIN’ LIFE, GO HARD AND DON’T QUIT ♪
♪ DRIP, SPLASH LIKE THE ICE ON THE WRIST, (Brr, brr, brr, brr,) ♪
♪ THAT’S A CALL I CAN’T MISS ♪

Veena Adams: (off-mic) :rage: :rage: :rage: :rage: AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!! UNCLE RYANNNNNN!!!!!!! :rage: :rage: :rage: :rage:

( Veena slams the mic on the floor and storms off the stage. )

Quavo: ♪ SET MY GOALS LIKE A GO HIT THE SWITCH ♪
♪ WORK, WORK, WORK, CHECK IT OFF THE CHECKLIST ♪
(with Takeoff and Offset chiming in) ♪ IN A POSITION TO WIN, IN A POSITION TO GO ♪
♪ IN A POSITION TO WIN, IN A POSITION TO GO ♪
♪ IN A POSITION TO WIN, IN A POSITION TO GO ♪
♪ IN A POSITION TO WIN, IN A POSITION TO GO ♪

( Their performance continues, and we get a view of the city of Atlanta, including a massive blimp containing the Pain for Pride logo on it. We see Fighter Jets from the United States Air Force speeding across the sky, and flying above the Mercedes Benz Stadium – visible from the opened roof of the stadium – which also sends the fans into a frenzy. Fireworks begin to rocket from the roof of the stadium into the cloudy Atlanta skies, and Migos continue their electrifying performance until the broadcast fades out…. )

( The video trailer begins with an aerial view of The Louvre museum, where members of the EAW Universe are entering and exiting the venue. A slow, brooding symphony begins to play from an orchestra, as the viewer is taken through a tour of the New Louvre. )

Narrator: History is a hall of mirrors.

( The first view inside the palace is of The Louvre’s Renaissance-style ceiling and walls, The Galerie d’Apollon, recreated with painted depictions of the greats of the past – including Ronn Banks holding up his World Heavyweight Championship, Mak and Sabina side by side as respective world champions in the midst of a great hailstorm, HRDO with his arms raised surrounded by raging fires with the WHC around his waist, Extreme Enigma depicted as leading an army of angels into a war with demons, and Starr Stan with his arms stretched out surrounded by cherubim carrying his Olympic gold medals and World Championships. )

Narrator: The greatness of the past is a reflection of the greatness That exists inside of all of you.

( We view a recreation of The Borghese Gladiator, depicting Noah Reigner with one hand held high in the same pose while the other hand is lugging behind the World Heavyweight Championship. On the other side of the same hall, we see a painting depicting Cameron Ella Ava as Joan of Arc, dressed in all black full body armour, kneeling before an angel in prayer. )

Narrator: History holds many lessons. It teaches us to be defiant. It teaches us to have gumption. To be bold in our pursuits. To brave the obstacles that many others would fight shy of ever daring to undertake, lest they cannot whether the storm.

( Elsewhere, The Raft of the Medusa is recreated with Jamie O’Hara, Darkane, Rex McAllister, Serena Bennett, Felix Hartley, Osamu Arcichida and Mark Michaels, sitting atop of the bodies of all the past contenders who were unsuccessful in capturing the championships they are entering Pain for Pride to fight for. They sit adrift on an improvised raft in the midst of chaotic, stormy waters, willing to whether the storm they face in the form of obstacles to their destination – championship gold. )

Narrator: History leaves behind example. It is seductive, like a temptress. The spoils of success lure in many with its charm.

( We see a carved marble bust of Brody Sparks holding the Specialists Championship. )

( Behind the bust, we see Cleopatra canonized in the Grand Odalisque painting, laying fully naked with her backside turned to us in the same lavish setting; with her breasts and her backside covered in the championships she’s won in her career, along with her other trophies and plaques laying on the comforter with her. )

Narrator: It may sometimes be debaucherous. Hedonistic. Self indulgent. For even history’s greatest heroes, in many instances, were also its most notorious heathens.

( We see Mr. DEDEDE canonized in the Mona Lisa painting with his arm around her, shades covering his eyes, Cuban cigar in his mouth — putting his left hand around Mona Lisa’s titty and using his right hand to hold up the :metal: symbol, while Mona Lisa licks his face. )

Narrator: And many times they were valiant. Not to be trifled with. Utterly dominant. Exemplary in leadership, ousting pretenders from their throne of lies.

( We view a recreation of ‘Liberty Leading the People’ showing the Empire roster holding muskets in hand, while Sienna Jade stands proudly holding up the Women’s World Championship, all while standing over the bodies of past disgraced ex-champions who need not be named. Tourists are snapping pictures of the portrait, and at the bottom frame of ‘Sienna Leading the People’ is a tag that reads #Unfuckwithable. )

Narrator: Yesterday’s brilliance gives way to the ingenuity of today.

( Visitors are seem marveling before a hall containing a recreation of The Winged Victory of Samothrace, showing a marble depiction of Visual Prophet with his arms held out in the same manner, while photographers and spectators alike snap pictures in awe of the nearly 35 foot sculpture of him. )

Narrator: Some of the greatest and most quintessential figures of the past, remain just as quintessential even to this very day.

( We see a view of the ‘Napoleon III apartment’ showing a long table filled with every championship title and end-of-the-year award in Impacts historic career. At one end of the long table, a short-haired, younger version of Impact from 2008 is depicted in a statue cut from granite, whereas at the other end of the table a long-haired, current granite statue of Impact is seen leaning over the table. )

Narrator: History dictates that pride is more virtue than it is a sin. Total confidence and belief in oneself has turned mortal men into icons and GOATs.

( The famous depiction of The Lamassu is shown, with the body of two colossal, winged four-legged creatures carved from solid stone. The creature on the left side depicts the head of a goat, and the four legged creature on the right side depicts the head of Ahren Fournier. )

Narrator: Many a war has been fought to claim history’s greatest riches. To this very day, powerful men fight to stake their claim to rulership. To achieve immortality, and join the pantheon of the Elites.

( We see crowds surrounded by as I.M. Pei’s Pyramid is recreated with a new touch of glass figurines of Malcolm Jones and Chris Elite; both clinging with one hand to the top of the pyramid and the other arm cocked back to depict punches to be thrown. Representing their battle for who truly belongs at the very top of the pyramid. )

Narrator: Tonight we celebrate the immortals. Tonight we fight for pride. Fight to assume power, and fight to protect it, with every fibre of our being.

( We view a depiction of the 30×20 massive portrait ‘The Coronation of Napoleon’ recreated with Theron Nikolas in the place of Napoleon. He is surrounded by all of the past Answers World Champions in EAW, displaying a variety of reactions, while standing proudly in the clothing of a general with the Answers World Championship around his waist. )

Narrator: Tonight history unfolds before your very eyes, tonight culture is redefined here at the SHOWCASE OF THE IMMORTALS, PAIN FOR PRIDE…

( Fade to black. )

( “Apeshit” by Jay-Z and Beyonce plays. )

Narrator: AND NOW..

( The animation for Pain for Pride XII plays is shown. )

Narrator: ELITE ANSWERS WRESTLING PROUDLY PRESENTS, THE 12TH PRESENTATION OF PRO WRESTLING’S GREATEST SPECTACLE… PAIN FOR PRIDE!!!!!!!

( Feed opens back up to the Mercedes Benz Stadium, where the official sold out attendance of 78,950 are giving everything they have. “Apeshit” by Jay-Z and Beyonce blares over the speakers, and a STUNNING series of pyro fires off from the stage, across the ceiling of the stadium, and above the now closed roof of the stadium into the sky with an incredible display of opening fireworks. )

Stew-O: IT IS THE MECCA OF CULTURE, THE EXHIBIT OF IMMORTALS, THE ULTIMATE DISPLAY OF PAGEANTRY! FOR THE 12TH TIME EAW BRINGS TO YOU THE MOST IMPORTANT EVENT IN THE HISTORY OF THE SPORT OF WRESTLING, WELCOME EVERYBODY TO PAIN FOR PRIDE 12!!!!!!!!!

( We get a quick view of a ‘Pain for Pride’ marching band entertaining Atlanta residents downtown earlier in the day. )

Stew-O: WE HAVE SET A RECORD BREAKING ATTENDANCE HERE IN THE IMMACULATE MERCEDES BENZ STADIUM IN ATLANTA. OVER 78,000 MEMBERS OF THE EAW UNIVERSE ON DISPLAY, AND BROADCASTING LIVE IN OVER 135 COUNTRIES!

( Camera switches to Stew-O who stands at the Dynasty announce desk with Flannery McCoy. )

Stew-O: The Voice of EAW Stew-O here, honored and truly, TRULY privileged to be here this evening, to call the Dynasty end of the action alongside the lovely Flannery McCoy. Flannery I can not tell you how AMPED UP I am to be a part of the Mecca of Culture, this may be the most I’ve anticipated a single event in years!

Flannery McCoy: Well that speaks volumes coming from the likes of you who’s seen just about everything there is to see here, but I’m in total agreeance Stew! There is no other feeling in the world like the Pain for Pride atmosphere, and to be able to call it from the best seat in the house is truly an honor!

Stew-O: Let’s kick it over to our Showdown announce team, the legendary duo of Deadprez and Eve!

( Deadprez and Eve stand at their announce desks. )

Eve: The machine just keeps getting bigger and bigger! The Mecca of Culture is taking over the world, we are in store for some of the greatest matches featuring the greatest competitors to EVER participate in our sport Stew! How can you NOT be over the moon right now, right DP?

Deadprez: I’M HYPE RIGHT NOW I’M HYPE! WHAT A VIBE! NOT GONNA LIE DAWG I’M DRUNK. I KNOW I KNOW, NOT A GOOD WAY TO START THE NIGHT, BUT SCREW IT! I’M HERE, YOU’RE HERE, LET’S … DOOOOO … THIS!!!!

( Deadprez grabs Eve’s face and kisses her on the lips. Eve has no idea what to do. )

Stew-O: (laughs) OKAY! Kicking it over to the Empire commentary team, with CJ Hana and Gavin Kirkland!

( Camera cuts to CJ Hana and Gavin Kirkland standing by at their announce table. )

CJ Hana: Gavin if you kiss me I’m going to feed you your own balls on a platter!

Gavin Kirkland: The only thing I should be kissing is my job goodbye! :mjcry: As glorious of an event as this is, I can’t help but feel as though it is a swan song for me. Oh wait, that’s right, because it is! How am I going to enjoy my fancy vacations to Turks & Caicos now CJ :kellycry:

CJ Hana: Lighten up Gavin, it’s PAIN FOR PRIDE! It’s Pro Wrestling’s version of Christmas! This may be the final time that Empire is represented on this show, but you had better believe the ladies of this brand plan on going out in a blaze of freaking glory!

Stew-O: And last but not least, our Voltage commentary team of James Peters and Rich Russillo!

( Camera cuts to Rich Russillo and James Peters standing by at the Voltage announce table. )

James Peters: Pro-Wrestling’s version of Christmas is the best way to put it! I cannot believe the time is finally here! I can’t believe I’m actually here CALLING the showcase of the immortals! I still remember where I was when the very first Pain for Pride came on the airwaves, I had all of my buddies packed inside my living room just to watch it, and now I finally made it!

Rich Russillo: It is an absolutely surreal experience for all of us! We have such an incredible weekend ahead of us, including one from the books from our Voltage kings! And as if it weren’t already an honor to get to be here, we are going to start this night off with an all time great, and a GODDESS!

Bella Braxton: Ladies and Gentlemen, this opening contest is SCHEDULED FOR…

Crowd: ONE FALL!!!!!!!

(“Bulls on Parade” by Denzel Curry hits as Xavier Williams slowly makes his way through the curtain. He stands on the stage, looking out at the thousands jam packed inside the Mercedes-Benz stadium before making his way down to the ring.)

Bella Braxton: Introducing first from Detroit, Michigan, weighing in tonight AT TWO HUNDRED AND TEN POUNDS!!!! HE IS THE SELF PROFESSED “BEST…. IN THE WORLD!!!!” XAVIER!!!!! WILLLLLLLIIIIAAAMMMSSS!!!!

James Peters: What a night the next three nights are going to be, Rich – and what a freaking way to start tonight off! It’s been two years since we’ve seen this man compete in singles competition here in EAW. A night that was filled with slaughter and heartbreak. A night that we all believed finished this man’s career. But, tonight he makes his return against the only person that he wanted to face at Pain for Pride. The person that he sees similarities to the person that he “used” to be and the road that he believes the road that Cameron Ella Ava is travelling down.

Rich Russillo: I don’t know how much truth is behind Xavier’s beliefs, but there was a time there a lot of people didn’t believe that Xavier Williams would take the turn that he did. He told Cameron tonight that she needs to be at her absolute best if she wanted to walk out tonight with her head held high, and if she wasn’t at her best – he was going to eat her alive. I have no doubts that Cameron is going to throw everything that she can at Xavier Williams tonight, but the question I have to ask, James; is Cameron Ella Ava going to be able to handle what Xavier Williams is going to throw her way tonight?

(As Xavier waits inside the ring, the lights inside Mercedes-Benz Stadium dim. The crowd starts buzzing, anticipating the arrival of Xavier’s opponent, Cameron Ella Ava.)

(The voice of ‘Wonder Woman’ actress, Gal Gadot, starts to speak.)

Gal Gadot: Once there was a girl who had a dream…

(Childhood photos of Cameron begin to flash across the tron. These images depict ‘The Goddess’ throughout her adolescence, from birth, all the way through her school years.)

Gal Gadot: A big dream… full of hope, wonder, and for the betterment of her family.

(There are family photos and video clips of the entire Ava family that flash on the screen.)

Gal Gadot: That dream would involve this sport we all know and love; this crazy world of professional wrestling.

(Photos and video clips of Cameron from her indy days are shown, right up to when she signed her contract with EAW.)

Gal Gadot: There have been plenty of ups…

(A montage begins to play that depict some of Cameron’s career milestones. She is seen capturing the Vixen’s Championship from Kendra Shamez at House of Glass in 2011, having gone through hell in a Taipei Deathmatch.)

(Cameron’s emotional win at Pain for Pride 6 is highlighted. It was at that event where she ended the year long Vixen’s Championship reign of the great Cleopatra.)

(Cameron’s 2012 Hall of Fame induction is shown, and it’s clear to see just how much that Hall of Fame ring meant to her.)

Gal Gadot: There have been moments of sweet revenge…

(Cameron is seen retiring the disgraced former Elitist and man who branded her, Jaywalker, back at Midsummer Massacre in 2014.)

Gal Gadot: There have been unforgettable, jaw-dropping moments that have tested the strength of this remarkable woman.

(Scott Diamond is seen beating the absolute living shit out of Cameron during an ‘I Quit’ match that was held in 2015 at the Triple Threat free-per-view.)

Gal Gadot: But with every setback, a renewed sense of purpose was born. Barriers were broken.

(Cameron is seen defeating Chuck Scene at the Showdown supershow, ‘Redemption’ in 2015. That victory gave Cameron the right to call herself the first ever female Interwire Champion.)

Gal Gadot: New challenges were met head on, with results that sometimes went in her favor, and sometimes went against her.

(Cameron is seen coming up short in the Specialists Championship Chamber match at Road to Redemption in 2016. She would lose that match to the legendary Brody Sparks.)

Gal Gadot: But the passion and the determination to be the best, and to show the world why she is the best female wrestler in all of EAW never wavered.

(Cameron is shown winning the Empire Cup back in 2017 at Malicious Intentions. That would translate into her successfully capturing the Women’s World Championship back at 2017’s Grand Rampage event.)

Gal Gadot: All this time the dream continued to grow, and it manifested itself into something far bigger than even the bright eyed little girl from California could have imagined.

(Cameron’s attempt to become World Heavyweight Champion is shown. It was back at Territorial Invasion in 2017 that she would fall in defeat at the hands of the love of her life and future husband, Jamie O’Hara.)

Gal Gadot: It was no longer about being just the best female wrestler. It was about proving to everyone, including herself, that she is just the best wrestler in the world. Period.

(Cameron is seen reaching another career milestone in 2018, back at King of Elite. She would leave the event as the Openweight Champion, as well as one-half of the EAW Tag Team Champions.)

Gal Gadot: But just like in the movies, the heroine always finds herself tested against the ultimate villain. The villain that would defile her, try and break her, and wouldn’t hesitate to use her family in order to do that.

(The 2018 Feud of the Year between Cameron and Mr. DEDEDE is highlighted. Every single heinous action from the Chairman is shown, including Jamie getting destroyed by ‘The Equalizer’ at the Draft Show, Cameron’s beatdown at Wicked Games, the ‘relationship’ between DEDEDE and her mother Carmen Ava, her estranged father Henrique’s involvement, and of course… the infamous red wedding.)

Gal Gadot: In order to continue climbing towards the glass ceiling, you have to slay the monster…

(Cameron and her sister Camille are seen hugging at Road to Redemption 2018 as they stand over Mr. DEDEDE and his bloody, broken body.)

Gal Gadot: And because you refuse to quit… you choose to keep going… and you never stop working hard, you find yourself at the top of the game. You are one of the faces of your generation. You’re a role model for you peers and for young women everywhere. You are strong, fearless, thoughtful, beautiful, determined, and never, ever have you given up on your dreams. You continued to climb. You continue to strive. You push yourself further than you thought possible. In fact… some would even say you are a modern day wonder woman.

(Red and blue lights fill the darkened stadium, and a white spotlight shines in the ring. Gal Gadot, in a red dress, is standing in the middle with a microphone. She steps forward with a smile on her face.)

Gal Gadot: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… PLEASE WELCOME… EAW’S WONDER WOMAN… ‘THE GODDESS’ CAMERON ELLA AVA!!!!

(Red, white, and blue pyro explodes from the stage. The shattering of glass is heard, no doubt that of a proverbial glass ceiling. Sparks rain from the sky and another spotlight flashes on the stage. Cameron Ella Ava appears, dressed in Wonder Woman inspired ring gear.)

(The crowd erupts as “ULTRAnumb” (Exterminated Remix) by Blue Stahli begins to play. The spotlight follows Cameron as she makes her way to the ring. Her smile lights up the entire stadium and there are tears shining in her soulful brown eyes.)

Rich Russillo: I have goosebumps right now, James. We are really here at Pain for Pride.

James Peters: It’s been a long season for Cameron Ella Ava, and my god. What an entrance. That just truly puts it into perspective about the journey this woman has been on, and everything she’s been through.

(Cameron and Gal embrace outside the ring, and Gal whispers some words of encouragement to Cameron. Cameron then climbs onto the ring apron, strikes a pose for the crowd, and tosses her custom made, Pain for Pride bedazzled SnapBack into the crowd. Cameron climbs into the ring and stands in front of Xavier, and both of them look around at the crowd. They take in the moment, savior the reaction, and as Cameron’s music fades out and the lights return to normal, both of them nod their heads at one another.)

(It’s time to get things started.)

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

James Peters: The bell rings and the FIRST match of Pain for Pride XII is OFFICIALLY underway. Xavier Williams wasting no time stepping forward and Cameron meets him in the middle of the ring. Xavier Williams turns his head and takes a look out at the thousands packed inside this stadium as that smile returns to his face. Cameron still looks as determined as ever. Both take a step back – and lock up! Xavier Williams quickly takes the advantage with a side headlock! Cameron immediately tries to find a way out of it, but Xavier transitions behind her and locks the waist! Xavier powers Cameron into the air and completes the takedown! Cameron trying scramble back to at least a knee, but Xavier isn’t going to give her the opportunity! Xavier spinning on the back of Cameron and applies a grounded front facelock! Cameron still trying to push her way back up, but Xavier fires with a knee to the top of the head! Xavier follows that with another knee before transitioning and mounting Cameron’s back! Cameron’s able to power her way up to her hands and knees, but it only gives Xavier the opportunity to hook his feet under Cameron and behind her knees! Xavier’s able to flatten Cameron out AND FIRES WITH A SWINGING FOREARM TO THE SIDE OF THE HEAD!

Rich Russillo: Xavier said that Cameron is going to have to be ready for anything, and Xavier has quickly sent the message that there’s going to be no feeling out process! Cameron tries and is able to block the one to follow, but Xavier’s trying to force that forearm under her chin! The pressure that Xavier’s forcing on Cameron Ella Ava is absolutely outstanding! Cameron’s blocking, but it’s going to take so much energy to do so! Xavier gives up the attempt of the submission, but Cameron still has to figure out a way to get away from her opponent. She made need a miracle! Xavier swings and connects with another forearm and transitions back into the front facelock while Cameron is stunned! LOOK! LOOK! XAVIER’S TRYING TO FLIP HIMSELF OVER INTO THAT SUBMISSION HE USED TO CALL THE CROWN OF THORNS!! XAVIER COMPLETES THE ARCH, BUT CAMERON WAS PREPARED!! CAMERON USED HER LEG TO KICK XAVIER’S OUT FROM UNDER HIM!! XAVIER’S LOST HIS GRIP AROUND THE NECK OF CAMERON AND SHE ROLLS AWAY!! Cameron is free as Xavier just watched with that arrogant smirk we were once all too familiar with!

James Peters: We all wondered if Xavier has changed from the man that he once was, but the question we may have had to ask ourselves was; how much better has Xavier Williams become in his time away? You can see that Cameron isn’t as quick to meet Xavier again. That may have thrown Cameron completely off her game. Xavier telling Cameron to get back to her feet and the two slowly circle around the ring. They both step forward and look to lock up – but Xavier drops and slips past Cameron and locks the waist again! Xavier trying to take Cameron back down to the canvas, but this time Cameron is ready and immediately cracks Xavier in the jaw with a back elbow! Xavier doesn’t release the grip, but is undoubtedly rocked! Cameron’s able to spin and locks Xavier in a standing front facelock! Cameron drives her knee into the sternum of the Best in the World! A second! A third! Cameron forcing Xavier back into the corner with each knee! Xavier trying to take a deep breath, but Cameron pushes him up and meets him with a chop to the chest! Cameron follows with a club to the chest! Chop! Club! Chop! Club! Cameron looks to send Xavier across the ring!

Rich Russillo: Xavier’s able to turn it around! Cameron hits the corner and Xavier looks to follow with that jumping corner splash! Cameron moves and Xavier eats turnbuckle! Xavier’s still in his feet as a staggers back! KNOCK BITCHES OUT!!! XAVIER SENT CRASHING DOWN TO THE CANVAS WITH THAT LOADED FOREARM SMASH!!! CAMERON FALLS INTO THE COVER!!!

ONE!!!!… TWO!!!!… KICKOUT!!!

James Peters: Xavier Williams gets the shoulder up! It’s incredible how Cameron has managed to stop the early onslaught by Xavier and now has Xavier on the ropes! Cameron pushes herself back to her feet and stalks! Xavier forces himself back to a knee, trying to shake out the cobwebs; Cameron drags him back to a vertical base and powers him up into that firearm’s carry position! Xavier with an elbow to the side of the head! Xavier with a second! Xavier fighting his way back down to his feet! Xavier sends Cameron through the ropes and out of the ring! Cameron lands on her feet – BUT THE MOMENT SHE TURNS BACK TO THE RING – XAVIER WILLIAMS BURSTS THROUGH THE ROPES AND TAKES CAMERON ELLA AVA OUT WITH A TOPE SUICIDA!!! Cameron sent crashing back into the barricade! Cameron clutches at her back, but Xavier doesn’t give her a moment to recover, rolling her back into the ring and shoots up into the apron! Xavier Williams looking to head up to the top rope as Cameron staggers back up to her feet! Cameron’s back to her feet – DIVING FRONT DROPKICK! BOTH FEET DRIVEN INTO THE CHEST OF CAMERON ELLA AVA!!

Rich Russillo: I’m surprised we just didn’t see Cameron’s chest pop. :krabs:

James Peters: Cameron dropped down to the canvas, but the momentum from the dropkick shooting her back to her feet and back into the corner! XAVIER WILLIAMS KIPS BACK TO HIS FEET AND THIS TIME CONNECTS WITH THAT JUMPING CORNER SPLASH! Cameron Ella Ava crushed back into the corner! Xavier sends Cameron rolling out of the corner and stalks! Cameron isn’t down for long, pushing herself back up – AND STRAIGHT BACK UP INTO A MOMENT OF SILENCE!! SUPERKICK!!! NO, CAMERON CAUGHT TO BOOT!!! CAMERON SPINS XAVIER AROUND AND LOOKS TO SEND HIM OVERHEAD WITH A GERMAN SUPLEX, BUT XAVIER INSTEAD DROPS FORWARD AND USES THE LEG OF CAMERON TO TAKE HER DOWN TO THE CANVAS!!! KNEE BAR!! KNEE BAR!! CAMERON TRAPPED IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING!!! CAMERON SCREAMING IN PAIN AS XAVIER WILLIAMS HYPEREXTENDS THE KNEE!!! CAMERON TRYING TO DRAG HERSELF TOWARDS THE ROPES, BUT XAVIER RELEASES THE HOLD!

Rich Russillo: But, Xavier still has a hold of that leg! Xavier drags Cameron back into the middle of the ring and SNAPS THAT LEG DOWN TO THE CANVAS WITH A MODIFIED DRAGON SCREW!! Xavier Williams just sits there as Cameron Ella Ava clutches at her knee! He told her, James! He told her that if she wasn’t good enough tonight that he was going to eat her alive! This is Cameron’s opportunity to end the toughest season of her career on a HUGE high, and right now it looks like Xavier Williams isn’t going to give her the opportunity. Xavier getting back to his feet and calls for the end! Xavier is ready to put Cameron away on the grandest stage in this business! Cameron forcing herself back up, you can see the pain in her face. That knee may be in absolute agony! Cameron’s back to a knee – KING’S FALL!!!!! XAVIER WILLIAMS WITH THAT KNEELING SUPERKICK FLUSH ON THE JAW OF CAMERON ELLA AVA!!! CAMERON PLUMMETS DOWN TO THE CANVAS AS XAVIER WILLIAMS MERCIFULLY DROPS DOWN TO THE COVER!!!

ONE!!!!… TWO!!!!… KICKOUT!!!!

James Peters: Cameron gets the shoulder up!

Rich Russillo: That brings a smile to the face of Xavier, James! Xavier sits there and takes a look back over his shoulder as Cameron keeps her shoulder off the canvas! Xavier pushing himself back to his feet as he calls Cameron back up to hers! Xavier slowly circling around Cameron! Cameron’s back to a knee – AND XAVIER FIRES WITH A SHOOT KICK TO THE CHEST!! A SECOND!! A THIRD!! A FOURTH!! REPEATED, UNFORGIVING SHOT TO THE CHEST OF CAMERON ELLA AVA!!! CAMERON CAUGHT THE LEG!!! CAMERON FIGHTING THROUGH THE ONSLAUGHT AND PUSHES HERSELF BACK UP TO HER FEET!!! THE LEG OF XAVIER WILLIAMS STILL TRAPPED, BUT CAMERON’S HEAD STILL HANGS LOW!!! CAMERON FINALLY LOOKS UP – AND CRACKS XAVIER BETWEEN THE EYES WITH A HEADBUTT!!! XAVIER STUMBLES BACK AND DROPS DOWN TO A KNEE AS CAMERON RUSHES FORWARD!!! CAMERON WITH A CLOSED FISTED RIGHT HAND THE JAW!! ONE TO THE BODY!!! CAMERON FIRING WITH WILD PUNCHES AS XAVIER WILLIAMS TRIES TO COVER UP, BUT WITH EVERY PART OF HIS BODY THAT XAVIER PROTECTS – CAMERON HITS SOMEWHERE ELSE!!! IT’S LIKE SOMETHING IN CAMERON ELLA AVA HAS SNAPPED!!!

James Peters: XAVIER BACKING INTO THE CORNER AND CAMERON FIRES WITH A FOREARM IN THE JAW! CAMERON WILL NOT RELENT!!! A SEASON FILLED WITH TORMENT! A SEASON FILLED WITH HEARTBREAK! A SEASON FILLED WITH BEING SO CLOSE – ALL NOW REACHING ITS BOILING POINT IN ABSOLUTE FURY!!! XAVIER PUSHES CAMERON BACK – AND SCREAMS IS THAT THE BEST THE CAMERON HAS TO OFFER!!!

The games are over! Cameron Ella Ava’s hope has gotten her nowhere! Cameron looking around; the glaze eyed look on her face tells the story! She’s out of it! It’s only instinct willing her forward!

XAVIER WILLIAMS HAS FREAKING NOWHERE TO GO!!!! DESPERATION IN HIS EYES!!!!! HE’S TRYING TO DRAG HIMSELF TO THE ROPES!!!!! HE TAPS!!!!! HE TAPS!!!!! XAVIER WILLIAMS TAPS OUT!!!!!!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

(“UltraNUMB” by Blue Stahli hits as Cameron Ella Ava rolls off of Xavier Williams and just lays on the canvas. Her face is in her hands as the emotion of this season and the victory at Pain for Pride hits her all at once.)

Bella Braxton: THIS WINNER OF THIS MATCH….. CAMERON!!!!! ELLA!!!!! AAAAAAVVVVVVAAAAAA!!!!!!

James Peters: She did it, Rich! Cameron Ella Ava has beaten Xavier Williams at Pain for Pride! A year filled with absolute torment! The war against Mr. DEDEDE; the heartbreak against Theron Nikolas! All of it lead to tonight. The match she NEEDED to win. The match that would prove that there’s more inside the woman than even she had proven to herself throughout her storied career.

Rich Russillo: The pure emotion on the face of Cameron Ella Ava show us how much tonight meant to her. This may not look like much to some, but tonight meant everything to Cameron. There’s nothing that’s going to stop Cameron from taking the one thing that she wants, and tonight she proved how much she fight she has in herself. She proved how deep she’s willing to dig to keep on fighting. Congratulations Cameron!

(Cameron celebrates in the ring before turning back… to a standing Xavier Williams. He’s looking down; his blonde hair covering his face as he throws out his fist. The two fist bump before Xavier leaves the ring, leaving Cameron to celebrate in the ring before the camera fades backstage.)

(Our camera finds Amber Keys seated on the carpeted floor of her private locker room, legs extended outward as she leans forward between her legs for a stretch. Her fingertips are inching forward in front of her on the floor as the crowd in the arena boos tremendously at the sight of Amber. Satisfied with her lower back stretch, she leans up and sits upright. She is about to fold her arms behind her back for a shoulder stretch, but she is startled by a knock on her locker room door.)

(Amber stands up angrily, and turns her head to the door. The camera follows her line of sight and we see Jenny Punk standing in the doorway, the crowd in the arena bursting into cheers and praise for the Hall of Fame Vixen, and Amber Keys’ oldest and best friend.)

(Jenny approaches Amber with a big smile, arms extended outward as she tries to reel The Dirti Diva in for a hug. Wisps of blonde and pink hair fly through the air as Jenny bounces with excitement.)

Jenny Punk: DD!!!

(Amber blinks and stares blankly at Jenny, almost as though Jenny Punk is unrecognizable.)

Jenny Punk: :lupe: Yeah, it’s been a while. Let’s try again, you might have forgot, see after I say “DD,” you’re supposed to shout “JENNY!” and we go back and forth for a while until—

Amber Keys: What the hell are you doing here?

Jenny Punk: (She frowns.) I’m here to see you, of course. It’s been a long time, DD.

Amber Keys: (She folds her arms across her chest.) I could have been butt ball nekkid in here for all you know, and you just waltz right in, hm? Uninvited? Have you no sense? Not an ounce of decency?

Jenny Punk: Why are you talking so damn funny? It’s *me*. It’s Jenny, you can be your complete self around me, Ambi, you know that you don’t need to protect your—

Amber Keys: Thanks for offering your comfort, Jennifer, but I *am* being myself. And if you don’t find exactly what it is you’re looking for in the Amber Keys that stands in front of you, then please don’t hesitate to find your way out of here. As you could easily tell, I’m in the midst of my pre-match stretching ritual.

Jenny Punk: Amber, this is the first time I’ve been able to talk to you in YEARS. And this is how you wanna act? What the hell is going on? What *happened* to you?

(Amber glares at Jenny.)

Amber Keys: :dahell: Don’t be foolish. I don’t give a fuck to speak to you, Jenny. I have a career defining matchup—in just a little while, tonight, actually. And you think *now* is the best time to play catchup? To try and talk things over, make amends? Cheer me up? Maybe finally apologized to me for breaking girl code by dating my ex?

(The camera feed cuts briefly to the audience in the arena to capture their reaction.)

Crowd: :oh:

Crowd: :damn:

Crowd: :dead:

Jenny Punk: (She scratches her scalp.) Pain for Pride is the grandest stage of them all, Amber, I only thought that maybe you’d find some encouragement by me coming out here to chat—

Amber Keys: NONSENSE! You came out here to grant your own dumbass wishes, to gain some clarity, to fulfill your own selfish desires by talking to me. I see right through it, Jenny. Yes, the first time you and I have had a face to face conversation in years. Nearly a decade. Whatever stopped you from reaching out anytime sooner, hm? What made you hold back from sharing how you really felt, why wait until now to try and pick Amber Keys’ brain?

Jenny Punk: Um, first of all, please stop referring to yourself in third person, that’s a lil’ weird, even for you. And two, Amber, you know how difficult things were for us all back then, I never knew what to make of the entire situation after you left AWF. I went to EAW, and if you only knew of what I had to put up with back then, just for being associated with you. If I’m being completely honest…I was scared, DD. Scared of what would happen if I were to remain your friend throughout all this, do you even know the great lengths some of these people would have taken to bring me down, too? Some mess about proving my worth based on who I was loyal to. It sounds silly looking back now, but we were only rookies then, babes, I was just starting off my career. You know how these things go. You know better than anyone that I could have—

Amber Keys: Could have what?! Tell me. Been thrown right out, hm? Dropped right on your ass, like I was, with nothing waiting for you after pouring every ounce of your being into this business? Didn’t want the same fate as me, did you? Because you were far too concerned about the state of your own career, right? And I didn’t *leave* AWF, allow me to correct you. I was forced out of it because of who I decided to be loyal to—*myself.* And I don’t see that as a mistake at all, I know in the end, it was the right thing to do. The right thing for me.

(Amber turns her back on Jenny, putting herself in position for a few yoga poses on the carpet. Jenny sighs, watching as Amber slips into downward facing dog, her bright red hair cascading the floor.)

Jenny Punk: If things had gone any differently…you know it would have been you and I *together* carrying the torch for Vixens and Womens Wrestling all over the globe, just like we were before all that shit went down. And I’m not the person you should be mad at. You don’t need to keep making enemies out of your friends, Amber. It might not work so well for you this time.

(Amber perks up, standing upright from her yoga pose and turning back around to Jenny in a fury, who now looks as though she’s seen a ghost, her cheeks turning a shade of bright pink to match the streaks in her hair.)

Amber Keys: Oh, so *that’s* what this is? You just don’t think I can beat Cleopatra, do you!? Typical, Jenny, came all the way here, to *my* locker room, to say your final goodbyes? Cause I’m a goner, aren’t I? Because you’re so *sure* that I’m losing, aren’t you?!

Jenny Punk: That’s not what I said—

Amber Keys: Yes. Yes it was. Go ahead, rub it in my face some more. Add insult to injury, remind me that yet again, I’m only going to be thrown out of those EAW doors and stare longingly at the “No Vacancy” signs they flash at me for hell, maybe another ten fucking years. Mhm. If only I stayed ~LoYaL~ Jenny, and maybe things would’ve turned out differently for me! Maybe we’d still be friends, maybe I’d have some EAW shares of my own, too, yeah, maybe *I’d* be head training, and people would actually show me some fucking respect around here. And maybe I’d even have a fucking Hall of Fame ring, too, just imagine. (Amber rolls her eyes.) If this was your attempt at trying to patch things up, Jenny, then shove it. I’ve had my fair share of fairweather friends—and I’m putting an end to one later this evening, be sure to tune in.

Jenny Punk: You mean Cleopatra?

Amber Keys: Who else, dummy?!

Jenny Punk: Amber, I…I’m just gonna go right or and say that I’m fucking disappointed in you. By facing Cleo this way, under these circumstances, by trying to put an end to that poor woman’s career…you don’t need to do this to prove your point. You’re only doing more harm than good to the division you love so much. You’re tearing us apart, tearing down all the woman who put so much of themselves into this game—it makes me sick to my stomach. I wish I knew what happened to you.

Amber Keys: You know *exactly* what happened to me, Jenny. And you stood by and watched right as it did, all the way through, and it ruined our friendship for good. And good riddance. You didn’t do anything for me then, and you don’t do anything for me now. No better than Cleo herself, latching onto me for protection, and then as soon as you saw fit, jumped into assume the position that was open once they kicked me out. But that’s okay. Just water under the bridge, because now, I’m *finally* reclaiming ownership of my career and you aren’t going to talk me out of it. This means more to me than you’ll ever know. And I think I’ve entertained you long enough. You can find your way out.

(Jenny sighs heavily, her arms pushed against her sides as her hands now formed the shape of tightly balled fists. She turns on her heels and opens the locker room door, looking over her shoulder one last time to get one last glance at the shell of her former best friend 4 lyfe, a tear in her eye.)

Jenny Punk: It was good to see you, DD. I know it won’t be the last time.

(Amber only grunts once, as if to say bye to Jenny. Jenny watches Amber for a moment before dismissing herself and leaving Amber alone in the locker room in her signature cross legged position. Amber begins mumbling to herself some musings about how she “*will* beat Cleopatra,” she “knows I can.” The camera fades back to the ring.)

(“I Don’t F*ck With You” by Big Sean ft. E40 begins to play as the crowd goes wild for Thadd Blazevich, Carsyn, and Crosby Carter. The three make their way down to the ring, processing the fact that they’re on the grandest stage of them all, something that gives them nothing but a smile on their faces.)

Bella Braxton: Making their way to the ring… Accompanied by Carsyn Carter… At a combined weight of 419 pounds… THADD BLAZEVICH AND CROSBY CARTER, THE FLOW BROS!!!!!!

James Peters: These two have worked their entire lives for this! This moment right here, their first Pain for Pride and it’s for not one, but two tag team Championships! These two basically live for deathmatches, they can take whatever is given to them, these two are a huge threat to watch out for!

Rich Russillo: That’s true, but let’s not forget the magnitude of this match. They’re competing for almost 80 thousand people for the first time, that’s got to be a factor in this one for them, especially when the stakes are this high. And speaking of raised stakes…

(“Heaven Help Us” by My Chemical Romance follows and the crowd couldn’t begin booing any sooner as Jake Smith and Joshua Nicholls make their way to the ring. The two have a much more serious demeanor this time, knowing that they can’t blow their third opportunity at these titles.)

Bella Braxton: And their opponents… At a combined weight of 424 pounds… JAKE SMITH AND JOSHUA NICHOLLS, THE REVOLUTION!!!!

Rich Russillo: These two have not had the greatest of luck in tag team Championship matches, as they’ve suffered two losses already, one of them being to the Wildcards, one of the teams in this match. They’ve got to be on their A game tonight, because anything less will cost them the win.

James Peters: But what if that’s not enough? This is their third chance. They’ve got to bring something else to the table, or they’re just gonna walk home empty handed once more. They’re a great team, but what does that matter if you lose when it matters most?

(“Rise” by Skillet begins playing and the Crowd once again begin cheering, with this time being the loudest as Minerva and Constance Blevins walk out with the Empire Tag Team Championships, something they could be holding for the last time.)

Bella Braxton: And their opponents… At a combined weight of 245 pounds… THEY ARE THE EMPIRE TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS, CONSTANCE BLEVINS AND MINERVA, HEAVENLY H*LL!!!!

James Peters: Wow, their combined weight is only five pounds more than Xander Payne. Anyways, Heavenly H*ll has been an excellent team from the start, and they solidified that in their first match as a tag team, winning the Empire tag team Championships against The Queens Court. Tonight they have a chance to add a second Championship to their resume.

Rich Russillo: Yeah, but let’s not forget what happened prior to this. The ending of Empire. Soon those Empire Tag Team Championships will be void, but that doesn’t matter if they can win here tonight. One win, and they could still be tag team Champions, but with a whole new line of competition.

(“Enemy Strike” by Yuki Hayashi plays and the crowd begins cheering just as loud as Myles makes his way onto the stage, but the crowd gets a little bit more mixed as “It Follows” by Cane Hill hits, as Xander Payne joins Myles holding the Unified Tag Team Championships..

Bella Braxton: And their opponents… At a combined weight of 448 pounds… THEY ARE THE UNIFIED TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS, MYLES AND XANDER PAYNE, THE WILDCARDS!!!

James Peters: What can we say about the Wildcards that hasn’t been said already? These two guys are two of the most talented on the roster, and through putting aside their differences, they were able to not only become tag team Champions, but become undefeated in tag team competition. Tonight they look to add another win to that streak, in possibly their biggest match ever.

Rich Russillo: Yeah. When Xander Payne won that New Breed title a year ago, not many people thought he’d be entering Pain for Pride as Champion today, much less with that Championship being a tag team one, but here we are. And now, they have a chance to hold two tag titles, making the stakes equally as high for these two.

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

James Peters: And this match is underway! Myles, Joshua Nicholls, Constance Blevins, and Crosby Carter are all starting in the ring as the four are hesitant to make a move. The four staring one another down, waiting to see who will strike first, BUT IT’S JOSHUA NICHOLLS WHO GOES FOR A LARIAT ON MYLES, BUT MYLES DUCKS IT, AND THERE’S A KNEE STRIKE TO NICHOLLS! CROSBY NOW CHARGING IN AT MYLES, BUT HE EATS AN ELBOW STRIKE BY THE UNIFIED TAG CHAMP-

OOOOOOONNNNNEEEEEEEE!!!!
TTTT-

Rich Russillo: CONSTANCE KICKS OUT! Remember, if Constance got pinned there the Revolution would have won both the Unified and Empire Tag Team Championships! Joshua now with repeated shots to the face of Constance- BUT THERE’S CROSBY WITH A KICK TO THE BACK OF NICHOLLS! Crosby sending Nicholls out of the ring, and now he’s attempting to pick Constance up but she’s able to get out of his arms! Constance running the ropes- AND THERE’S A SPEAR! THIS EARLY IN THE MATCH!

James Peters: Constance not going for the cover, because Myles is back in the ring and now it’s down to these two! Constance charging towards Myles- BUT HE DODGES A LARIAT, BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A HUGE GERMAN SUPLEX! Joshua making it back inside the ring, as Myles tries to go for the tag to Xander- AND HE’S UNABLE TO AS JOSHUA CONNECTS WITH A GERMAN SUPLEX OF HIS OWN! Joshua is the only man, or woman standing, and there’s the tag to Jake! The two now grabbing Myles, AND THERE’S A DOUBLE INVERTED DDT! Joshua exiting the ring as Jake goes for the cover on Myles!

OOOOONNNNNNEEEEEE!!!
TTTTTWWWWO-

Rich Russillo: BUT MYLES KICKS OUT! Jake now backing up into his corner, waiting for Myles to get to a knee with a huge smile on his face before charging at him, SHINING WIZARD BY JAKE! The Revolution so far are in control of this Fatal 4 Way but James, look at what Myles just did!

James Peters: What did he do?

Rich Russillo: HE KNEELED! MYLES JUST KNEELED TO JAKE!

James Peters: Well I don’t think he was really kneeling to him. I’m pretty sure he was just trying to get to his fee-

Rich Russillo: AND THERE’S ANOTHER SUPERKICK, THIS TIME FROM CROSBY, CONNECTING WITH JAKE! JAKE’S BEEN TAKEN OUT BUT NOW IT’S CONSTANCE GETTING BACK TO HER FEET! Crosby and Constance looking towards one another, and now it’s down to these two still standing!

James Peters: Crosby and Constance now circling the ring before now beginning to lock up! The two struggle for control but now it’s Crosby who gets a headlock in on Constance! Constance now pushing Crosby into the ropes, and responds with an arm drag as he bounces off of them! Constance now, but Crosby is able to get to one foot fairly quickly! Crosby now getting on both feet, and there’s a punch to the midsection, causing Constance to let go of his arm!

Rich Russillo: Crosby attempting a spinning back elbow, but Constance ducks under it! Constance now attempting that short arm Clothesline- but Crosby is able to duck that as well, before kicking Constance in the midsection! Crosby now lifting her up, possibly attempting a Suplex, but Constance slips behind him! Crosby now turning around- right into a kick to the midsection, this time by Constance! Constance running the ropes now-

James Peters: RIGHT INTO A CLOTHESLINE BY MYLES! AND THERE’S JAKE TAKING OUT CROSBY! JAKE SMITH AND MYLES JUST TOOK OUT THE OTHER TWO LEGAL COMPETITORS, AND NOW IT’S DOWN TO JAKE OF THE REVOLUTION, AND MYLES OF THE WILDCARDS!

Rich Russillo: These two teams have the most history in this match, AND NOW THEY’RE GOING RIGHT AFTER EACH OTHER! JAKE AND MYLES TRADING BLOWS, AND THEY’RE NOT LOOKING TO LET UP! MYLES NOW GETTING THE BETTER OF JAKE, AND NOW THERE’S A CLOTHESLINE SENDING HIM OUT OF THE RING! Myles now looking to Xander, who’s nods to him, what’s he thinking here?

James Peters: Myles now running the ropes, SUICIDE DIV- NO! JAKE JUST SMASHED A CHAIR INTO THE FACE OF MYLES! JAKE JUST PULLED OUT A CHAIR AND HIT MYLES RIGHT IN THE FACE WITH IT JUST AS HE WAS ABOUT TO HIT A SUICIDE DIVE! Jake bringing Myles into the ring, and there’s the tag to Josh once again! Myles is in the center of the ring as Jake and Josh are in opposite corners! The two charging in, DEATH BY KNEELING!

Rich Russillo: NO! MYLES MOVED OUT OF THE WAY! MYLES JUST MOVED AS JAKE AND JOSH JUST CRASHED INTO ONE ANOTHER! MYLES NOW CRAWLING TOWARDS XANDER’S CORNER, AND IT LOOKS LIKE HE JUST MIGHT MAKE IT TO THE TAG THIS TIME! MYLES IS REACHING OUT TO XANDER, AND HE LEAPS TOWARDS HIM! BUT CROSBY PULLED XANDER OFF OF THE APRON, AND THERE’S A SUPERKICK TO XANDER PAYNE! IN THE RING NOW MYLES HAS GOTTEN TO HIS FEET, BUT THERE’S ANOTHER SPEAR BY CONSTANCE, THIS TIME TO MYLES! CONSTANCE WITH THE COVER NOW- NO! CARSYN PULLING CONSTANCE OUT OF THE RING! JUST AS SHE WAS ABOUT TO PIN MYLES!

James Peters: BUT THERE’S A ROUNDHOUSE KICK BY CONSTANCE, TAKING CARSYN OUT, BUT LOOK AT CROSBY! THROWING CONSTANCE RIGHT INTO THE RING POST! CONSTANCE WAS JUST SENT FACE FIRST INTO THE POST, AND CROSBY’S NOW BRINGING HER INTO THE RING! Crosby now making the tag to Thadd, what’s he going for? Thadd picking Constance up, AND THERE’S A SUPERKICK BY CROSBY, FOLLOWED BY A DEATH VALLEY DRIVER! THEY CALL THAT THE FLO, AND THERE’S THE COVER NOW BY THADD!

OOOOONNNNNNEEEEEE!!!!!!!
TWWWWWOOOOOOO!!!!!!
T-

James Peters: KICK OUT! CONSTANCE MANAGED TO KICK OUT, BUT THADD DOESN’T HAVE TIME TO REACT AS JAKE COMES CHARGING TOWARDS HIM! THADD MANAGES TO AVOID A HUGE SHINING WIZARD, AND BOTH GET BACK TO THEIR FEET BUT THADD IS ABLE TO STRIKE FIRST, CONNECTING WITH A HUGE ENZUIGIRI! THADD PICKING JAKE UP NOW, AND THERE’S A SIT OUT POWERBOMB BY THADD- BUT LOOK! MYLES, DEADLIFTING THADD OFF THE GROUND, WITH A GERMAN SUPLEX! AND THERE’S THE PIN BY MYLES!

Rich Russillo: HE DOES! THE TAG HAS BEEN MADE TO XANDER, AND HE IMMEDIATELY RUNS IN, DROPPING A HUGE SENTON ON THADD BLAZEVICH! XANDER’S NOT FINISHED, AS HE DROPS A SECOND SENTON, THIS TIME ON JAKE! CONSTANCE IS IN THE CORNER, BUT XANDER CHARGES RIGHT TOWARDS HER! CANNONBALL-

James Peters: NO! CANNONBALL MISSES, AND CONSTANCE NOW MANAGES TO RUSH OVER TO MINERVA, MAKING THE TAG!

James Peters: Both Jake and Thadd are slowly making it to their feet with the ropes, and just look at the frustration between these two! Jake now charging towards Thadd, BUT HE MISSES WITH THE BICYCLE KICK! THADD FROM BEHIND! HE HOOKS BOTH ARMS, AND THERE’S THE BROTEIN SHAKE!

Rich Russillo: NO! JAKE LANDS ON HIS FEET! HE MANAGED TO LAND ON HIS FEET, AND HE PICKS THADD UP! CROSSFIRE!!!! THE FALCON ARROW CONNECTS AND HERE’S ANOTHER COVER BY JAKE, THIS TIME ON THADD!!!

OOOOOOONNNNEEEEEEEEEE!!!!
TTTTTTTWWWWWOOOOOOO!!!!
THRRRE-

Rich Russillo: XANDER PAYNE JUST HIT JAKE IN THE BACK WITH A KENDO STICK! XANDER JUST HIT IT ACROSS HIS BACK, AND NOW HE’S CHOKING HIM OUT WITH IT! REMEMBER, THIS IS A FATAL 4 WAY, THERE ARE NO DISQUALIFICATIONS! WHAT XANDER IS DOING IS PERFECTLY LEGAL, AND IT LOOKS LIKE NOBODY CAN STOP HIM AS JAKE IS SLOWLY BEGINNING TO FADE! THE REFEREE LIFTS UP HIS ARM!

AND IT DROPS!

THE REFEREE GOING TO LIFT IT UP A SECOND TIME!

… IT DROPS!!!!!

THIS IS IT, IF THE ARM DROPS AGAIN THE WILDCARDS RETAIN! THE REFEREE LIFTS THE ARM UP-

James Peters: AND THADD JUST BROKE UP THE SUBMISSION! THADD MANAGED TO USE WHATEVER STRENGTH HE HAS RIGHT NOW TO FREE JAKE FROM THE CHOKE BUT I DON’T THINK HE CAN CAPITALIZE, AND ALL HE DID WAS MAKE XANDER ANGRY! XANDER MANAGES TO GET TO HIS FEET, AS THADD IS TRYING TO USE THE ROPES TO DO THE SAME BUT XANDER GETS TO HIM FIRST, SENDING HIM INTO THE OPPOSITE PAIR OF ROPES!

Rich Russillo: Thadd bouncing off of the ropes now, INTO THE POP UP POWERBO- NO! THADD JUMPS OVER XANDER, AND THERE’S A SLEEPERHOLD! THADD’S GOT A SLEEPERHOLD LOCKED IN ON XANDER AND BOTH MINERVA AND JAKE ARE OUT! XANDER IS GETTING TO A KNEE, TRYING TO FIGHT OUT OF IT BUT THADD IS TRANSITIONING IT, INTO THE DRAGON SLEEPER! “MY GIRLFRIEND TAUGHT ME THIS”, IT’S LOCKED IN, AND XANDER HAS NOWHERE TO GO! XANDER CAN’T ESCAPE, HE JUST MIGHT HAVE TO TAP OUT HERE! HE’S FLAILING HIS ARMS, TRYING TO FREE HIMSELF BUT HE CAN’T! XANDER MAY HAVE TO TAP HERE!

James Peters: WAIT, IT’S MINERVA! MINERVA IS BACK INTO THE MATCH AND SHE PICKS THADD UP! SEEDS OF EVIL! THE SEEDS OF EVIL CONNECTS! XANDER’S DOWN! JAKE’S DOWN! NOW THADD IS DOWN! MINERVA IS THE ONLY PERSON STANDING, AND THERE’S THE TAG TO CONSTANCE! Constance managing to lift Thadd up in an electric chair, and Minerva’s going to the second rope! COULD THIS BE IT!? IT LOOKS LIKE THEY’RE SETTING UP FOR THE-

Rich Russillo: SUPERKICK! SUPERKICK BY JAKE! DROPPING BOTH CONSTANCE AND THADD, AND MINERVA DIVES FROM THE SECOND ROPE- RIGHT INTO A SUPERKICK! JAKE WITH THE TAG TO JOSHUA! THE TWO NOW IN OPPOSITE CORNERS AS XANDER IS SLOWLY WAKING UP IN THE CENTER OF THE RING, AND NOW THEY RUN IN! DEATH BY KNEELING! IT CONNECTS! THAT RUNNING KNEE AND SUPERKICK COMBO, AND THERE’S THE COVER BY JAKE! IT LOOKS LIKE WE MIGHT HAVE NEW CHAMPS!

OOOOONNNNNNNEEEEEEEE!!!!!

Rich Russillo: CARSYN JUST PULLED JAKE OUT OF THE RING! JAKE CAN’T BELIEVE HIS EYES, CARSYN JUST PULLED HIM FROM THE COVER RIGHT AT THE LAST POSSIBLE MOMENT, AND THIS IS THE SECOND TIME SHE HAS GOTTEN INVOLVED LIKE THIS!

Jake Smith (Off Mic): WHAT ARE YOU DOING!? WHAT’S WRONG WITH YOU!? YOU’RE NOT SUPPOSED TO TOUCH ME, YOU’RE-

Rich Russillo: AND CARSYN JUST TRIED PUNCHING JAKE, BUT HE JUST CAUGHT HER HAND! AND THERE’S A KICK TO THE MIDSECTION, BROKEN WINGS! JAKE JUST HIT THE BROKEN WINGS ON CARSYN, AND NOW JAKE JUST THREW CARSYN OVER THE BARRICADE! JAKE’S SHOUTING TO JOSHUA NOW, AND IT LOOKS LIKE THEY’RE TRYING TO FINISH THIS!

Jake Smith (Off Mic): GO GET IT! TAKE IT OUT!

James Peters: Joshua looking under the ring for “it”, and I’ve only got to wonder what he has in mind! Joshua, taking out a…..

Rich Russillo:….. Is that..?

James Peters:… It can’t be…

Rich Russillo: It is..

James Peters: Joshua just pulled a LEGO table out of the ring. Joshua just pulled a LEGO table out from under the ring, and now he just slid it into the ring. This has got to be a joke, right?

Rich Russillo: I mean, it was pretty effective at Grand Rampage, and like, imagine once it breaks how painful it’d be landing on the lego pieces.

James Peters: Don’t justify this.

Rich Russillo: Sorry. Anyways, Jake making his way into the ring and now he gets the tag to Joshua, BUT JOSHUA IS IMMEDIATELY MET WITH A SERIES OF FOREARMS BY THADD, BUT JAKE WITH A KNEE TO THE MIDSECTION! Joshua now putting Thadd in a powerbomb position and… Oh no.. Not like this.. Jake Smith is climbing to the top rope, if they hit this, this could be the ultimate form of disrespect!

James Peters: GOLD RUSH! THADD WAS JUST SENT INTO A LEGO TABLE BY THE REVOLUTION! THAT’S IT! JAKE ROLLING OUT OF THE RING AND JOSHUA GOES FOR THE COVER, WE’RE GONNA HAVE NEW CHAMPS!

OOOOOOOOONNNNNNEEEEEEE!!!!!!

BOTH CONSTANCE AND JOSHUA GET TO THEIR FEET, AND THERE’S A HUGE SHOT TO THE MIDSECTION BY JOSH! JOSHUA NOW PRACTICALLY TRAPPING CONSTANCE IN HIS CORNER, WITH CONSTANT BLOWS, AND HE IRISH WHIPS HER INTO THE OPPOSITE CORNER BEFORE CHARGING IN- BUT CONSTANCE MOVES OUT OF THE WAY, GOING OUT ONTO THE APRON! AND THERE’S A SLINGSHOT SPEAR! CONSTANCE WITH A TAG TO MINERVA, AND THIS TIME CONSTANCE HAS THE ELECTRIC CHAIR ON JOSHUA AS MINERVA CLIMBS TO THE SECOND ROPE!

Rich Russillo: NO GLORY END OF STORY!!! IT CONNECTS!!!! THE ELECTRIC CHAIR AND MODIFIED DIVING CUTTER ON JOSHUA! THE COVER NOW BY MINERVA, THIS MAY BE IT!

Rich Russillo: XANDER PAYNE HITS A SENTON ON MINERVA, BREAKING UP THE PIN! I THOUGHT IT WAS OVER! JUST BEFORE THREE, XANDER JUST DROPPED AT LEAST 300 POUNDS RIGHT ON TOP OF MINERVA, AND SHE MAY BE SERIOUSLY HURT! XANDER NOW WITH THE COVER ON MINERVA, FOR THE WIN!

Rich Russillo: JOSH KICKS OUT! JOSHUA MANAGED TO GET THE SHOULDER UP AT THE LAST POSSIBLE SECOND! XANDER CAN’T BELIEVE HIS EYES! WHAT’S HE SUPPOSED TO DO NOW!? MYLES IS OUT, XANDER DOESN’T HAVE ANYONE TO TAG IN!

Jamee Peters: Xander now dragging Joshua to his feet, and he throws him into the ropes, AND THERE’S A POP UP POWERBOMB- BUT JAKE WITH A SHINING WIZARD, JUST AS XANDER WAS GOING FOR THE COVER, AND IT LOOKED LIKE HE TAGGED HIMSELF IN AS JOSHUA WAS AT THE ROPES! JAKE NOW PULLING XANDER TO HIS FEET, AND HE THROWS HIM OUT OF THE RING- NO! XANDER MANAGES TO LAND ON THE APRON, BUT JAKE IS FOLLOWING BEHIND!

Rich Russillo: JAKE AND XANDER NOW TRADING PUNCHES BACK AND FORTH, BUT IT LOOKS LIKE JAKE IS GETTING THE BETTER OF XANDER! JAKE WITH A KICK TO THE MIDSECTION, OH MY GOD! THE LAST RESORT! THE BROKEN WINGS NECKBREAKER OFF OF THE APRON, AND JAKE MAY HAVE JUST TAKEN OUT BOTH XANDER AND HIMSELF! NOBODY IS ABLE TO GET UP, THEY’VE ALL BEEN TAKEN OUT!

James Peters: Minerva is slowly beginning to get to her feet! She’s taken the least damage as of right now, and now she sees an opportunity as Thadd lays in the ring! MINERVA RUNNING TO THE TURNBUCKLES! H*LLS BELL’S, NO! THADD MOVED OUT OF THE WAY BUT MINERVA MANAGES TO LAND ON HER FEET! LARIAT BY THADD- NO! MINERVA DUCKS UNDER IT! PARADISE LOST; IT CONNECTS!

James Peters: THADD GOT THE SHOULDER UP!!!!!!

Rich Russillo: HOW!? HOW IS THADD STILL IN THIS MATCH!? AFTER EVERYTHING THEY’VE WENT THROUGH, THADD SOMEHOW REMAINS IN THIS MATCH!!! MINERVA CAN’T BELIEVE THIS, AND NEITHER CAN I! HE WAS JUST DDT’D INTO LEGOS, HOW IS HE STILL IN THIS!?

James Peters: I DON’T KNOW, BUT THERE’S THE TAG TO CONSTANCE, AND IT LOOKS LIKE THEY’RE TRYING TO FINISH THADD OFF FOR GOOD! CONSTANCE SETTING UP FOR THE LIONESS PRIDE, AND NOW MINERVA OFF THE ROPE-

Rich Russillo: NO! JAKE PULLING MINERVA OUT OF THE RING, AND THERE’S THE PARALYZER! JAKE JUST HIT THE SPINEBUSTER, RIGHT ONTO THE BARRICADE! CONSTANCE ATTEMPTING TO HIT THE LIONESS PRIDE, BUT THADD THROWS CONSTANCE OFF OF HIM, AND HE LEAPS OVER TO CROSBY, THE TAG HAS BEEN MADE! CROSBY NOW WITH AN ARCHED BIG BOOT TO CONSTANCE WHO WAS GETTING BACK TO HER FEET! JAKE GETTING BACK INTO THE RING, BUT HE’S MET WITH A SPINNING BACK ELBOW BY CROSBY, AND THERE’S A BASEMENT DROPKICK TO THE MIGHTIEST ONE! CROSBY NOW CLIMBING TO THE TOP ROPE, AND THERE’S A MOONSAULT TO CONSTANCE, AND THERE’S THE COVER!!

OOOOOONNNNNNNNNNEEEEE!!!!!

TTTTTTHHRRREE-

James Peters: CONSTANCE KICKS OUT, BUT CROSBY, doesn’t look too frustrated actually. Crosby exiting the ring, and he’s looking for something, but what? Oh my God… Well, this definitely isn’t a LEGO table…

Rich Russillo: CROSBY JUST TOOK OUT MULTIPLE PANES OF GLASS, AND HE’S SETTING IT UP BY THE TURNBUCKLES! CROSBY PICKING JAKE UP, AND HE’S CHARGING TOWARDS THE GLASS, BUT JAKE SLIPS OUT OF THE CROSBY’S GRASP! TURN AROUND CROSBY!

James Peters: PARALYZER! JAKE JUST PUT CROSBY THROUGH THE PANES OF GLASS WITH A SPINEBUSTER, BUT JAKE IS UNABLE TO CAPITALIZE! HE’S TRYING TO CRAWL TO THE ROPES TO GET BACK TO HIS FEET, AND SOON HE’LL BE THE ONLY ONE STANDING! WHAT A MATCH THIS HAS BEEN SO FAR- OH MY GOD!

Rich Russillo: XANDER JUST SMASHED A CHAIR RIGHT INTO THE SKULL OF JAKE! AND NOW HE DROPS THE CHAIR, BUT HE’S PICKING JAKE UP! PAYNEKILLER! XANDER JUST HIT THE PAYNEKILLER ONTO THE CHAIR, BUT CONSTANCE IS CHARGING AT XANDER- RIGHT INTO A POP UP POWERBOMB ON TOP OF JAKE! XANDER, WHAT ARE YOU DOING!? XANDER’S GOING TO THE TOP ROPE!! FROG SPLASH, ON TOP OF BOTH CONSTANCE AND JAKE!!! XANDER COVERING BOTH OF THEM AT THE SAME TIME, TO RETAIN THE UNIFIED TAG TITLES, AND WIN THE EMPIRE TAG TITLES!!!!

OOOOOOONNNNEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!
TTTTTTTTWWWWOOOOOOO!!!!!!!
TTTTTTTTHHHRRREEEEEEEE!!!!!!

Rich Russillo: BUT BOTH JAKE AND CONSTANCE GOT THEIR SHOULDERS UP! SOMEHOW THEY FOUND IT IN THEM TO GET THEIR SHOULDERS UP JUST TO STAY IN THIS MATCH, BUT THAT JUST MIGHT BE IT FOR THEM! I DON’T THINK THEY HAVE ANYTHING LEFT TO GIVE, AND XANDER IS GOING TO THE TOP ROPE ONCE AGAIN!

James Peters: XANDER FROM THE TOP ROPE! MOONSAULT- NO! THEY MOVED! JAKE AND CONSTANCE BOTH MANAGED TO MOVE AT THE LAST SECOND AND XANDER JUST FELL RIGHT ONTO THE CHAIR! XANDER WAS THE LAST PERSON CAPABLE OF EVEN MOVING AT THIS POINT, BUT NOW THEY’RE ALL OUT! ALL OF THE LEGAL COMPETITORS ARE ON THE FLOOR LAID OUT, BUT LOOK WHO IT IS! IT’S MYLES! MYLES MAKES IT BACK TO THE APRON AND HE’S EAGERLY WAITING FOR THE TAG, YELLING AT XANDER TO GET TO HIM!

Rich Russillo: BOTH CROSBY AND XANDER ARE CRAWLING TOWARDS THEIR PARTNERS, BUT WHO WILL MAKE IT FIRST? THEY BOTH MAKE IT! THADD AND MYLES HAVE BEEN TAGGED IN, AND THE TWO ARE CHARGING RIGHT TOWARDS ONE ANOTHER!

James Peters: RUNNING KNEE STRIKE BY MYLES, SENDING THADD INTO THE ROPES! THADD REBOUNDS OFF THE ROPES, ATTEMPTING A LARIAT BY MYLES DUCKS IT, AND THERE’S A KICK TO THE MIDSECTION! POWERBOMB BY MYLES, AND HE LIFTS HIM BACK UP! SIT OUT POWERBOMB! MYLES WITH THE COVER NOW!

OOOOOOOONNNNNEEEEEEE!!!!
TTTTTTWWWWWWOOOOOOOO!!!!!!
TTTTTHHHRRR-

James Peters: THADD KICKS OUT! Myles now leaving the ring, and it looks like he’s now looking for a weapon of his own! What could it be?

Rich Russillo: A TABLE! NOT A LEGO ONE, BUT AN ACTUAL TABLE THIS TIME! MYLES BRINGING IT INTO THE RING, AND HE’S SETTING IT UP IN THE CORNER! WHAT IS HE PLANNING TO DO!? HE’S LIFTING THADD UP! GERMAN SUPLE- NO!

THE ASSISTED MOONSAULT CONNECTS, AND THERE’S THE COVER BY CROSBY!

James Peters: CONSTANCE BREAKS UP THE PIN!!! ONCE AGAIN THIS MATCH HAS BEEN SAVED, AND I CAN’T FEEL ANY WORSE FOR THE FLOBROS! JUST LOOK AT THE FACE OF CROSBY, BEHIND ALL THE BLOOD FROM THE GLASS!!! CONSTANCE CAN’T EVEN STAND RIGHT NOW YET SOMEHOW SHE WAS JUST ABLE TO MAKE IT OVER TO BREAK THAT PIN! CROSBY CAN’T BELIEVE IT, BUT LOOK WHO’S BACK! IT’S CARSYN, ONCE AGAIN BACK IN THE MATCH, AND SHE’S HANDING CROSBY SOMETHING! IT’S ANOTHER KENDO STICK!

Rich Russillo: CROSBY WAS JUST HANDED A KENDO STICK BY CARSYN, AND HE HITS CONSTANCE RIGHT IN THE FACE WITH IT, AND NOW CROSBY IS JUST REPEATEDLY SMASHING THE KENDO STICK RIGHT INTO CONSTANCE’S BACK, I THINK CROSBY HAS JUST SNAPPED, AND NOW HE’S DOING THE SAME TO MYLES! MYLES TRYING TO USE THE TURNBUCKLES TO GET TO HIS FEET, BUT HE’S BEING BLASTED WITH THE KENDO STICK-

James Peters: HE CAUGHT IT! MYLES CAUGHT THE KENDO STICK, AND HE HITS CROSBY WITH IT RIGHT BEFORE PICKING HIM UP! DE FACTO!!! THE DE FACTO CONNECTS, AND FINALLY, THE COVER BY MYLES-

Rich Russillo: JAKE THREW MYLES OUT OF THE RING! THE COVER NOW BY JAKE, HE’S GONNA STEAL IT! JAKE’S GONNA STEAL THE TAG TITLES!!!

OOOOOONNNNNNEEEEEEEE!!!!!!
TTTTTTTWWWWWOOOOOOO!!!!!!!
TTTTTHHHRRREEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!

Rich Russillo: BUT CROSBY NOW MANAGES TO GET THE SHOULDER UP!! AFTER WHAT HE WENT THROUGH, HOW WAS HE ABLE TO DO THAT!? HOW WAS HE ABLE TO GET THE SHOULDER UP!? THERE’S NO WAY I CAN UNDERSTAND THIS, BUT IT DOESN’T MATTER NOW AS JAKE TAGS IN JOSHUA, AND THEY’RE LOOKING TO PUT AN END TO THIS MATCH!

James Peters: JAKE’S SETTING UP FOR A NECKBREAKER AS JOSHUA IS UP ON THE TOP ROPE, BUT LOOK! CROSBY WITH A LOW BLOW ON JAKE! CROSBY JUST LOW BLOWED JAKE AS JOSHUA GETS DOWN FROM THE TOP ROPE, AND HE LIFTS CROSBY UP FOR THE SPINNING THUNDER- BUT CROSBY LANDS ON HIS FEET, AND NOW HE LIFTS JOSHUA UP! SMOKE BREAK! THE FIREMAN’S CARRY CUTTER CONNECTS, BUT CROSBY IS UNABLE TO CAPITALIZE! HE CAN’T MAKE IT FOR THE COVER!

Rich Russillo: AND HERE COMES MYLES, THROWING CROSBY INTO THE TURNBUCKLES! MYLES DEADLIFTING JOSHUA, INTO A SIT OUT POWERBOMB! MYLES NOW PINNING JOSHUA TO RETAIN THE TITLES!!!

OOOOOONNNNNNEEEEEEE!!!!!
TTTTTTWWWWOOOOOOOO!!!!!
TTTTTTTHHHRRREEEEEEEE!!!!!

Rich Russillo: AND JOSHUA KICKS OUT NOW!!! MYLES RUSHING OVER TO CROSBY WHO’S STILL IN THE CORNER, AND THERE’S A GERMAN SUPLEX!

James Peters: Myles is clearly frustrated with all that’s happened thus far, but now he’s climbing to the top rope! Myles looking towards Crosby, AND HE CONNECTS WITH A FROG SPLASH, BUT LOOK, JOSHUA GRABBING THE LEG OF MYLES, AND THERE’S A FIGURE FOUR! IT’S LOCKED IN!! JOSHUA HAS THE FIGURE FOUR LOCKED IN AND THERE’S NOWHERE FOR MYLES TO GO!! IS THIS HOW THE WILDCARDS LOSE THE TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIPS? IS MYLES GOING TO TAP OUT!?

Rich Russillo: MYLES IS TRYING HIS BEST TO FIGHT OUT OF IT BUT HE CAN’T! HE CAN’T GET OUT OF IT AND HE’S CLENCHING HIS FISTS JUST TO AVOID TAPPING HERE!! MYLES IS TRYING TO PULL HIMSELF TOWARDS XANDER BUT CAN HE MAKE IT!? AT THIS RATE HE JUST MIGHT HAVE TO TAP, BUT LOOK!

James Peters: MYLES IS SLOWLY PULLING HIMSELF ONTO HIS STOMACH, AND HE’S FOUND A WAY TO REVERSE THE SUBMISSION ONTO JOSHUA, FORCING HIM TO RELEASE IT!! BOTH MEN PULLING THEMSELVES TO THEIR RESPECTIVE CORNERS, BUT LOOK! CONSTANCE MADE THE TAG, AND THEY DIDN’T EVEN REALIZE IT! MINERVA RUNNING INTO THE RING AND SHE JUST SENT JOSHUA OVER THE TOP ROPE!! MINERVA NOW RUNNING TOWARDS MYLES, AND THERE’S A CLOTHESLINE INTO THE CORNER, FOLLOWED BY A SHORT ARM CLOTHESLINE! MINERVA NOW, WITH THE H*LLS BELLS ONTO MYLES! THE SPLIT-LEGGED MOONSAULT CONNECTS!

Rich Russillo: BOTH JOSHUA AND MYLES WERE TAKEN OUT BY MINERVA, BUT THERE’S THE TAG TO THADD, JUST AS MINERVA DIVERTED HER ATTENTION TO THE FLOBROS! THADD AND MINERVA COMING FACE TO FACE, AND THERE’S A HUGE RIGHT HAND BY MINERVA! BUT THADD RESPONDS WITH ONE OF HIS OWN!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Bella Braxton: HERE ARE YOUR WINNERS… AND NEW UNIFIED TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS…. MINERVA AND CONSTANCE BLEVINS, HEAVENLY H*LL!!!!

James Peters: HEAVENLY H*LL DID IT!!! THEY WON THE TITLES!!! JUST AS THADD THOUGHT HE WAS THE ONLY ONE LEFT STANDING, MINERVA MANAGED TO HIT THE BLACK WEDDING, AND NOW HEAVENLY H*LL ARE BOTH UNIFIED, AND EMPIRE TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS!!!

Rich Russillo: AFTER EVERYTHING THESE EIGHT COMPETITORS WENT THROUGH, WE FINALLY HAVE A WINNER!!! IT’S UNFORTUNATE FOR THE OTHER THREE TEAMS, ESPECIALLY FOR THE WILDCARDS WHO LOST THEIR TITLES, BUT CONGRATULATIONS MINERVA AMD CONSTANCE BLEVINS!!!

James Peters: You’ve got to wonder what’s going through these teams heads right now! The Revolution failed their third opportunity! The Flobros failed in a match they’ve worked their whole life for! The Wildcards are no longer Tag Team Champions after everything they’ve been through!

Rich Russillo: It’s a tough thing to process, but these two have worked so hard for this! These two deserve this match just as much, if not more than anyone! What an amazing match by these four teams!

(“Rise” begins playing as the crowd gives an ovation for Minerva and Constance Blevins. The two hug in the ring before being given both Championships, which the two hold up in their hands as all three other teams are seen outside of the ring, frustrated, in pain, and disappointed.)

(Pain for Pride fades to a brief commercial break.)

(Commercial break for Jergens and Henny featuring Gavin Kirkland. We love Gavin :wow:)

(We transition into our next match graphic.)

View post on imgur.com

(Strange, ominous music and lights are heard and seen, filling the arena with a menacing aura as the camera provides us with a good look of the barbed wire steel cage from all sorts of angles.)

Gavin Kirkland: CJ. Hold me. :lupe:

CJ Hana: Cheer up, Gavin, we made it to Pain for Pride XII! And hello again, everybody! We’re excited to finally be joining you for some commentary this evening.

Gavin Kirkland: Speak for yourself, I wanna go home. I don’t want to have to watch as that *thing* puts her grimey paws all over the beautiful blonde Heart of Empire.

CJ Hana: Out of all the matches the first night, this is going to be one of the most brutal matches on the card! I can feel it, Gavin! This is going to shift the ton of this entire event the other way! Andrea Valentine defends her championship against Celes Dumont!

(The video package of Celes Dumont’s backstage interview at Terminus is shown. Celes proclaiming that who ever wins the Ladder Match between Consuela Rose Ava and Andrea Valentine, she will be first in line to face them. Andrea claiming the Specialists Championship is shown. We go forward to Empire, with Celes Dumont and her chalkboard where pictures of previous Specialists Champions are shown. You see that each photo is connected by a red line of threat, making everything look like a jumbled up mess. Celes states that she didn’t like how Andrea was able to get the Specialists Championship and beat Consuela before her. Even though she didn’t mind who won, it seems like she was leaning more towards Consuela retaining, but it doesn’t mess up her plans to go after the title.

It goes to Celes talking to The Visual Prophet backstage, talking about a “panty raid” before it fast forwards to Consuela getting Andrea and showing her that the locker room has been trashed. Most of Andrea’s belongings are gone. Goes to the week after with Andrea finding Celes’ lair and her altercation with her. Andrea makes the challenge to face Celes for the Specialists Championship at Pain for Pride … in a Barbed Wire Steel Cage Match. Goes to the tag team match of Consuela Rose Ava and Darcy May Morgan versus Andrea Valentine and Celes Dumont. We witness the miscommunication between Andrea and Celes. Celes spitting at Andrea’s face before connecting with the Angel’s Touch, which sends Andrea outside. Fast forwards with Andrea trying to superkick Celes, but nails Consuela instead. Celes punches Andrea and fast forward to getting the victory for her team. Celes standing tall in the ring with Andrea look ringside with an intense look on her face is the last vision to be seen of this video package.)

(The feed transitions back to the ring.)

(“Malevolence” by New Years Day plays through the speakers. The crowd gives the challenger a mixed reception. Could be positive lean. Out comes Celes Dumont with a barbed wire baseball bat in her possession. Celes has her usual faceprint on her face, looking as war ready as ever. Next to her is her cousin Miho Li with the spool of barbed wire and the barbed wire kendo stick in her position. The two cousins look at each other with huge grins on their faces as take there way down the ramp.)

CJ Hana: Back in November, Celes Dumont made her presence known to the EAW Universe! This was nothing more than a woman, who had a long way to go before being considered for championship opportunities. I don’t believe she was underneath anyone’s radar at that moment, Gavin. But, slowly, but surely, she began to really step up and prove that she more than belonged in the championship scene. This is truly one woman, who has taken the criticism given to her and learned from it. Just the improvement and growth that we have seen the past few months is remarkable. This isn’t her first opportunity at the Specialists Championship, but I can assure you that Celes is going to make the most of this opportunity!

Gavin Kirkland: If you’re wondering what I called “that thing” for a period of time, I was referring to Celes Dumont. Over the past few months, she’s even impressed me. This is truly an environment that she has been accustomed to. The win/loss records may not speak for itself, but Celes has managed to bring something extra out of her opponents. She managed to get Harlow Reichert and Consuela Rose Ava to look to their hardcore sides and win. She managed to establish Minerva as one of the most intimidating women on the Empire brand. That is the power of Celes Dumont, CJ. It should be interesting if Celes brings something out of Andrea — something that we haven’t seen before.

(“Malevolence” continues to play through the speakers as Miho Li is giving Celes Dumont a pep talk. Celes looks at the cage and the barbed wire surrounding it. Celes nods in approval before stepping inside the ring. Miho is taking her place around the outside the cage, near where Celes is standing. Her entrance music dies down as she waits for the Specialists Champion to come out.)

(“Roll With Me” by Charli XCX plays through the speakers the fans give an EXPLOSIVE reception as Andrea Valentine walks out from the back in her Killer Frost inspired ring attire. The attire is much similar to the one that Brody Sparks wore when defending her Specialists Championship at Pain for Pride X. However, this is more in touch to Andrea’s usual attire than Brody’s. Andrea has the Specialists Championship around her waist.)

Gavin Kirkland: Wow, the tears are comin’, Ceej, as we see Andrea Valentine is paying homage to her late friend, Brody Sparks with her choice of attire. It seems like Andrea is going to need to channel that same aggression and ruthlessness that her friend was known for. The last time that Andrea walked into her first title defense for the Specialists Championship, she found herself defeated. Andrea cannot let the same thing happen again. Andrea has had Celes Dumont try her best to play these mind games with her. Celes has done what she could to get the upper hand on the champion. Andrea needs to go into this match and prove that she wasn’t phased whatsoever.

CJ Hana: When Andrea Valentine came into the company, she was propped up as the next big thing on this brand. This was a woman, who you could have revolved a brand around. It seemed like over the past year, she has had her highs and lows. Yet, she’s managed to keep her head up and move forward. She has the type of attitude that most of the women need to use as the example. Barely have you heard her complain about her standing on the brand. She just continued to compete. She continued to believe that her hard work will pay off in the end. It did at Terminus, but Andrea would love nothing more than to get through this title defense and keep this title reign going!

(Andrea Valentine looks at the barbed wire steel cage structure from the outside. This isn’t her usual environment, but “The Heart of Empire” looks quite determined to make an impression. She takes a deep breath before entering the cage. Andrea does her usual entrance.)

(Maria Del Rey stands in between of Andrea Valentine and Celes Dumont. Both of the women are waiting for their introductions. “Roll With Me” dies down.)

Maria Del Rey: THE FOLLOWING MATCH IS A BARBED WIRE STEEL CAGE MATCH!

(The crowd pops for that.)

Maria Del Rey: AND…IT’S FOR THE ELITE ANSWERS WRESTLING SPECIALISTS CHAMPIONSHIP! THE ONLY WIN THE WIN THE MATCH IS BY PIN FALL, SUBMISSION OR ESCAPING THE CAGE WITH BOTH FEET TOUCHING THE FLOOR! INTRODUCING FIRST…THE CHALLENGER… REPRESENTING FATAL DESTINY…FROM BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS… SHE IS “LADY GORJIRA” … CEEEELLLLLLEEEEESSSSSSSSSSS DUUUUUUUUUUUMOOOOOOOONNNNNNNNNNNNTTTTTTTTTT!!

(The crowd gives the challenger a mostly positive reception. Celes Dumont doesn’t react, but she has her eyes focused on Andrea Valentine. Andrea is waiting for her introduction.)

Maria Del Rey: INTRODUCING HER OPPONENT…FROM ORLANDO, FLORIDA…SHE IS THE CURRENT ELITE ANSWERS WRESTLING SPECIALISTS CHAMPION … “THE HEART OF EMPIRE” … ANNNNNDDDDRRRRRREEEEEEEAAAAAA VAAAALLLLLLEEEEENNNNNTTTIIIIINNNNNNNEEEEEE!!

(The crowd pops for the champion. Andrea Valentine raises her championship proudly and high in the air. She looks at the championship in her possession before handing off the title to the official, Marti Solo. The official shows the title to Celes, who nods. Marti Solo raises the title high in the air in the middle of the ring, letting everyone know what these women will be going into battle for.)

(Marti Solo hands Maria Del Rey the Specialists Championship before exiting the ring. There is another official outside of the ring that shuts the cage door closed. The official inside the ring, looks at both women and asks them if they’re ready. Andrea and Celes nod before Marti rings the bell! This match is underway!)

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

CJ Hana: ANDREA VALENTINE. CELES DUMONT. BARBED WIRE STEEL CAGE MATCH. SPECIALISTS CHAMPIONSHIP ON THE LINE. THIS IS FOR SURE GOING TO BE ONE OF THE BLOODIEST MATCHES ON THE CARD. Barbed wire is nothing to take lightly. Can you imagine what would happen if someone like Celes Dumont got her hands on barbed wire? We have seen her in hardcore stipulations! If there is any woman in this match with an edge over her competition, it would be Celes! Sure, Celes may have not come out as a winner in her Chairs Match against Minerva or in her Hardcore Match against Consuela Rose Ava, but this is truly an environment that this young woman thrives in! The idea of being in such an electric arena at the moment could benefit in either women’s way. Going into the beginning of the year, this was not a Pain for Pride match I was expecting, but I love Empire for being the perfect platform in helping women like Celes improve, evolve and possibly become Specialists Champion! There is no denying the hard work and dedication Celes has put over the past several months to reach this point! The most important match in her career! If there was a stage where Celes needs to show to Elite Answers Wrestling and everyone around the world that she belongs here, it has to be right now!

Gavin Kirkland: Let’s not count out my baby, Andrea Valentine, CJ! Andrea has a lot to prove going into this match! She needs to prove that she can successfully defend the Specialists Championship! The last time Andrea had that title, she didn’t walk away with it! She faced herself in defeat! It has been a recurring thing with Andrea and theses title defenses, she always seems to be losing championship way too soon! But, Andrea Valentine is the “Heart of Empire”. This woman embodies the spirit that a female Elitists in this company needs to be — hardworking, determined, loyal and will to overcome any trials that stand in her way. It would be so easy for Andrea to just get discouraged after losing the Specialists Championship for the first time after King of Elite, but Andrea kept pushing herself. Andrea kept moving forward and it has led her to the Pain for Pride stage! The FOX man in me wants Andrea to walk out of this match as Specialists Champion, but I am not going do deny the fighting spirit Celes Dumont has showed over the past few months!

(Andrea Valentine and Celes Dumont look around the sea of fans in the Mercedes-Benz Stadium. The fans know that these women will be going through absolute hell. It will be for the sake of walking away with one of the most decorative titles in women’s wrestling.)

CJ Hana: This Specialists Championship match is underway! Both Andrea Valentine and Celes Dumont meet in the middle of the ring! Celes is poking her cheek — it’s almost like Celes is allowing Andrea to deliver the first punch in the match! Andrea is almost looking confused! I know that Celes tends to be a bit unpredictable at times, but I don’t think Andrea was expecting this! Andrea is looking around the roaring crowd, who are just screaming for the blonde to punch Celes! Celes would love nothing more than for Andrea to punch her right now! It seems like the Specialists Champion does not know what to do, Gavin!

Gavin Kirkland: IT SEEMS LIKE ANDREA VALENTINE HAS MADE HER DECISION AS SHE DELIVERS A POWERFUL FOREARM THAT TAKES CELES DUMONT INTO A SEATED POSITION! CELES IS HOLDING THE SIDE OF HER FACE, IN WHICH ANDREA JUST PUNCHED THE HELL OUT OF. IT SEEMS LIKE CELES IS SHOCKED! BUT, THAT FACIAL EXPRESSION CHANGES AS CELES HAS A HUGE, CRACKLING GRIN ON HER FACE! IT’S BEEN A WHILE SINCE I CALLED HER THAT THING, BUT IS THAT THING HAPPY THAT THE BEAUTIFUL AND BLONDE ANDREA VALENTINE JUST PUNCHED HER? WHAT THE HELL IS THIS, CJ? :wtf:

Celes Dumont (off-mic): Is that all you got, Andrea?

CJ Hana: Celes Dumont rises back to her feet, but Andrea Valentine doesn’t give Celes anytime to recover! Andrea connects with a Lou Thesz press on Celes! THE SPECIALISTS CHAMPION BEGINS TO UNLOAD ON HER CHALLENGE WITH SOME LEFT AND RIGHT HOOKS! ANDREA IS NOW DELIVERING SOME STIFF ELBOW SHOTS TO THE SKULL OF CELES DUMONT! Andrea is not holding back whatsoever and I don’t think that she wants too! She knows the match that she is in! She knows what she needs to bring into this match! Andrea has clear intentions of retaining her championship! Andrea gets Celes by her hair and throws her to the turnbuckle! Celes crashes head first against the turnbuckle before she turns herself around! Andrea begins to stomp on her challenger before connecting with a corner foot choke on Celes Dumont! Celes is tiring to use her strength to get herself out of this hold! It seems like the official is going to begin her count!

Marti Solo: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FIVE! LET GO, ANDREA!

Gavin Kirkland: IT’S A BLOODY BARBED WIRE STEEL CAGE MATCH. WHY ARE WE STILL LISTENING TO OFFICIALS? JUST LET THESE WOMEN JUST MURDER EACH OTHER! But, just because my sweet Andrea is such an obedient woman, she releases the hold! I don’t think Andrea is in such a rush to make this a blood bath; however, it seems like Celes will use the first opportunity she gets to bring that barbed wire into the match! Andrea Valentine gets Celes Dumont by her arm before whipping her to the other corner! No! Celes manages to stop herself midway as she counters Andrea’s whip! Andrea’s back collides with the corner! It seems like Celes has found her opportunity to turn the tides of this match up! Celes runs towards Andrea, but Andrea leap frogs up as she sits herself on the top turnbuckle! CELES GOES CRASHING SHOULDER FIRST AGAINST THE POST AT THE CORNER! ANDREA GETS ON CELES’ BACK — SUNSET FLIP ON THE CHALLENGER! IT SEEMS LIKE ANDREA IS PLANNING TO MAKE THIS A QUICK TITLE DEFENSE!

Marti Solo …ONE! TWO!

CJ Hana: Celes Dumont manages to roll out of the count! Andrea Valentine manages to get to her feet before Celes does as she manages to take her challenger down with superkick, but Celes manages to catch Andrea’s foot before the superkick could connect! Celes turns Andrea to the side! Celes manages to roll up Andrea! Celes with a roll up attempt of her own! Andrea manages to get out of the roll up before the official could get in position for the count! Andrea finds herself in a seated position! But, Celes manages to be the first woman on her feet before connecting with a superkick on the champion! Celes Dumont manages to get back to a vertical base as she gets Andrea by her blonde hair! Celes is making sure to pull on that hair before throwing her across the ring! Celes doesn’t seem like she would possess that power, but she just managed to throw the champion far enough! Andrea is clutching her lower back in pain! It seems like Celes Dumont is just warming up at the moment! IT WOULD BE BEST FOR CELES TO EASE UP IN BARBED WIRE, BUT I WOULD NOT BE SHOCKED IF SHE INTRODUCES THE VIOLENCE WITHIN THE NEXT FEW MOMENTS. :lupe: Andrea tries to make it to a vertical base, but Celes doesn’t even give her the time to do that before connecting with a dropkick! The dropkick takes the blonde down as Celes knows that she needs to keep this up! CELES GETS ANDREA BACK TO A VERTICAL BASE BEFORE WHIPPING HER TO THE ROPES! ANDREA RUNS TOWARDS CELES! THE SPECIALISTS CHAMPION TRIES TO GO FOR ONE OF HER USUAL TILT-A-WHIRL HEADSCISSORS TAKEDOWN, BUT CELES MANAGES TO STOP THE TILT-A-WHIRL BEFORE DROPPING TO ONE KNEE AND CONNECTING WITH A BACKBREAKER!

Gavin Kirkland: CELES DUMONT MANAGED TO SHIFT ALL THE MOMENTUM THAT THE BEAUTIFUL AND BLONDE ANDREA VALENTINE WAS GOING TO USE TO CONNECT WITH A TILT-A-WHIRL HEADSCISSORS TAKE DOWN AND USE IT TO HER ADVANTAGE! CELES BEGINS TO BASH THE ELBOWS TO THE SKULL OF THE CHAMPION! ANDREA IS IN TROUBLE AT THE MOMENT! I DON’T LIKE WHERE THIS IS HEADED, CJ! :sob: :sob: :sob: Celes is going haywire with those elbow shots! “The Twisted Sister of Domination” manages to rise back to her feet! She gets Andrea back to her feet as well! Celes knees Andrea in the stomach! Andrea bends down in response to that! Celes manages to connect with a sharp elbow to the back of Andrea! Andrea falls stomach first! It seems like Celes is going to go for a submission move! She has been known to bring some submission moves to the table as well! Any submission in her arsenal could be use to weaken the champion! Celes stands over Andrea Valentine before getting her hands and pulling them back! Her foot is on her back! SHE HAS THE SURFBOARD LOCKED IN ON ANDREA! THIS HAS TO BE ONE OF THE MOST PAINFUL SUBMISSION MOVES TO HAVE ON YOU! NOT ONLY DO YOU HAVE NO CONTROL OF YOUR ARMS AND LEGS, BUT YOU ARE ALSO LIFTED UP A BIT! MY SWEET ANDREA IS SEEN CRYING OUT IN PAIN! JUST LIKE I SAID, THIS IS A PAINFUL SUBMISSION HOLD, CJ! I’M JUST HOPING THAT ANDREA CAN MUSTER UP THE STRENGTH TO GET OUT OF THE HOLD, BUT IT’S GOING TO NEED TO REQUIRE SOME STRENGTH TO GET OUT OF IT IF CELES DOESN’T WANT TOO! ANDREA, USE THAT HEART OF YOURS TO FIND SOME STRENGTH! YOUR TITLE IS ON THE LINE! YOU BETTER NOT LOSE HERE!

Crowd: LET’S GO ANDREA! :clap: :clap: :clap: LET’S GO ANDREA! :clap: :clap: :clap:

CJ Hana: It seems like the EAW Universe in this stadium has their favorite — Andrea Valentine! These fans have always stuck by Andrea’s side! They love seeing her succeed. They hate seeing her failed. Andrea would hate to let them down at Pain for Pride! Celes Dumont would love to have Andrea disappoint these fans! It would bring a smile to her face! Getting her first championship in EAW is something that seems closer and closer to her each time she faces the level of competition that she has! If Andrea wants to stand any chance of retaining her title, she is going to need to get out of this stretch!

Gavin Kirkland: Andrea Valentine is trying to muster up that strength right now! She was able to rip one of her hands away from the grasp of Celes Dumont! I think that Celes is going to find herself in a bit of trouble now! Andrea manages to break free of her other hand! Andrea’s arms are away from Celes! Andrea is balancing as her feet are still twisted with Celes’! This is beautiful, CJ! Andrea falls forward as she lands in a push up position! Her feet are still with Celes’, but it seems like Andrea is finding some sort of a way to counter this move! NO! I SPOKE TOO SOON, CELES DUMONT RELEASES WHATEVER WAS LEFT OF THE SURFBOARD AND APPLIES A KNEE BAR ON THE CHALLENGER! SHE HAS THE SUBMISSION HOLD APPLIED ON THE CHAMPION! ANDREA THOUGHT THAT SHE MANAGED TO GET HERSELF OUT OF THE SURFBOARD, BUT CELES WAS SO SMART TO THINK ON HER FEET! SHE SAW THAT SHE COULD APPLY THE KNEE BAR AND THAT WAS EXACTLY WHAT SHE DID! ANDREA IS TRYING TO DRAG HERSELF TO THE BOTTOM ROPE! THERE IS NO WAY THAT SHE IS GOING TO SUBMIT! THAT WAS HOW SHE LOST THIS SPECIALISTS CHAMPIONSHIP IN THE VERY FIRST PLACE! THE LAST THING THAT ANDREA WANTS TO DO IS TAP OUT! Celes is trying to keep Andrea right where she is! Celes has Andrea where she wants her at the moment! There is no way that Celes is going to let Andrea go! It would be such an amazing thing for Celes to accomplish! Can you imagine if she makes Andrea Valentine tap out in the biggest stage of them all? I will completely stop calling her that thing (haven’t called her that in sometime), but I vow to stop calling her that once and for all!

CJ Hana: Gavin, you might not even be here to call her that at all. :lupe: But, as we focus on the action, Celes Dumont releases the knee bar on Andrea Valentine! I’m a little confused on that, but it seems like Celes is taking Andrea to the corner! Celes slides underneath the bottom rope as she gets Andrea’s legs — IS SHE APPLYING A FIGURE FOUR LEG LOCK AROUND THE RING POST? ANDREA IS IN TROUBLE NOW! SO FAR, CELES HAS GONE FROM A SURFBOARD TO A KNEE BAR TO A FIGURE FOUR LEG LOCK AROUND THE RING POST! ANDREA CRIES OUT IN PAIN ONCE AGAIN! YOU CAN REALLY SEE THE PAIN ON HER FACE!

(With Celes Dumont hanging upside down as she applies the figure four leg lock on Andrea Valentine, Miho Li manages to hand Celes a barbed wire kendo stick through the hole of the cage. Celes manages to grasp onto the barbed wire kendo stick.)

CJ Hana: Is that a barbed wire kendo stick? It seems like Celes Dumont is going to be the first woman to bring the weapons into this match? I’m not shocked about that, to be honest! ANDREA VALENTINE IS TRYING TO GET THE UPPER PART OF HER BODY, BUT CELES GETS THE KENDO STICK AND BASHES IT OVER THE SKULL OF ANDREA! ANDREA FALLS BACK, BUT ELEVATES HERSELF BACK UP AS CELES HITS ANDREA WITH THE KENDO STICK AGAIN! THIS TIME, IT SEEMED LIKE PIECES OF THE BARBED WIRE GOT STUCK ON ANDREA’S FOREHEAD! THIS WAS ENOUGH TO SEND THE CHAMPION TO HER BACK! CELES RELEASES THE FIGURE FOUR! ANDREA’S LEGS ARE FREE FROM THE SUBMISSION MOVE!

(The camera turns to Andrea Valentine in the ring. The first signs of blood are on her skull. The cut does not look too deep, but that is probably going to change soon. :lupe: )

Gavin Kirkland: You all can thank Miho Li for introducing that barbed wire kendo stick into the match! We really cannot forget that Miho is surrounding the barbed wire steel cage. If Andrea has intentions of escaping outside the cage, she is probably going to need to deal with Miho! Andrea is going to need to do her best to keep the match inside the ring! The more she tries to escape the cage, the more likely it will be for them to get involved! Celes Dumont enters the ring and gets Andrea into a seated position! She is looking into the eyes of the fans in the Mercedes-Benz Stadium! CELES HAS THE BARBED WIRE KENDO STICK IN HER HAND BEFORE RUBBING THE BARBED WIRE AGAINST ANDREA’S FOREHEAD! :damn: :damn: :damn: Someone give this woman a towel! Women shouldn’t bleed like that! For sure, Andrea Valentine is feeling the stinging sensation of the cut! Celes sticks her tongue out as she is enjoying cutting up Andrea! Celes drops Andrea! Andrea falls to an all fours position! CELES GETS THE BARBED WIRE KENDO STICK AND PRESSES IT AGAINST THE THROAT OF ANDREA! THIS WOMAN IS GOING TO CHOKE OUR CHAMPION! CELES GETS ANDREA IN A VERTICAL POSITION AS SHE STILL HAS THE KENDO STICK PRESSED UP AGAINST ANDREA’S THROAT! CELES APPLIES A CHOKE HOLD ON ANDREA! COME ON, ANDREA! BREAK FREE OF THE HOLD! YOU CAN SEE THAT ANDREA IS GASPING FOR AIR! SHE KNOWS THE LONGER THIS MOVE IS APPLIED, THE MORE DANGEROUS IT IS GOING TO BE FOR HER! ANDREA IS GOING TO NEED TO THINK OF SOMETHING TO HELP HER GET BACK IN THIS MATCH!

CJ Hana: Andrea Valentine with a stunner! She drops down harshly as Celes Dumont staggers back for a moment! In the process, the barbed wire kendo stick drops as Andrea gets a good grasp on the kendo stick! Celes goes towards Andrea, but Andrea connects with barbed wire kendo stick to Celes’ stomach! Celes bends down in response as Andrea rises her bloody self back to her feet! Andrea swings the kendo stick to Celes’ back as she drops her to an all fours position! ANDREA STILL HAS POSITION OF THE KENDO STICK BEFORE SHE BEGINS TO REPEATEDLY HIT CELES’ BACK WITH IT! ANDREA VALENTINE IS NOT HOLDING BACK WITH ANY OF THESE SHOTS! SHE WANTS TO MAKE SURE THAT CELES GETS A TASTE OF HER OWN MEDICINE! ONE LAST GIANT SWING TO CELES’ BACK AND THE KENDO STICK BREAKS IN HALF! ANDREA GETS THE HALF OF THE BROKEN KENDO STICK BEFORE GETTING CELES DUMONT INTO A SEATED POSITION! SHE DRIVES THE END OF THE KENDO STICK TO CELES’ FOREHEAD! :damn: :damn: :damn: Andrea is matching Celes’ level of brutality in this match and I am all for it! Celes’ forehead begins to release blood! Both these women are bloody at the moment as Andrea throws the broken kendo stick to the side! Andrea rebounds off the ropes to connect with a low dropkick that drops her challenger! Celes is down for the moment, but Andrea is not going for the cover there! It seems like she wants to make sure that Celes stays down! Andrea rolls underneath the bottom rope and pulls up the ring skirt! I am not sure what Andrea plans to bring into this match! She’s not someone who I normally see going all hardcore, but I am enjoying what she has been bringing to the table so far!

(A moment passes by as Andrea Valentine pulls out a barbed wire table into the equation. She holds the table up in front of her.)

Gavin Kirkland: It seems like Miho Li is trying to get to Andrea Valentine’s face! Miho may be outside the cage, but that doesn’t mean that she can’t be useful for Celes Dumont when she needs them to be! Andrea seems to be a little focused on Miho at the moment, but she has a title to defend! She can’t be focused on these distractions! Andrea turns herself around —

CJ Hana: CELES DUMONT SPRINGS BACK TO LIFE BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A DOUBLE FOOT STOMP ON THE BARBED WIRE TABLE! IN THE PROCESS, SHE MANAGES TO FLATTEN ANDREA VALENTINE, WHO WAS BEHIND THE TABLE! BOTH THE CHAMPION AND CHALLENGER ARE DOWN! THE TABLE DOESN’T EVEN BREAK IN HALF, BUT YOU KNOW THAT ANDREA FELT THAT! You can see that Celes twisted her right ankle as she nailed that spot! When it comes to the amount of weapons they bring into the match, the official has no control of that at all! If things get out of hand or where one of their wellbeings is in trouble, it will be reasonable for the official to step in! But, it seems like Marti Solo has given these women the freedom to do whatever as long as none of them dies. But, I feel like we’ll be getting a death soon enough. :lupe: Andrea Valentine is still down. Celes Dumont gets back to a vertical base, but she is shaking off the pain that she is feeling in her right ankle! It sees like she landed on that very awkwardly, Gavin!

(A slow motion replay of Celes Dumont delivering a double foot stomp onto the table crushing Andrea Valentine in the process. The main focal point of this replay is the moment that Celes tweaks her ankle.)

Gavin Kirkland: Celes Dumont slides the barbed wire table inside the ring. SHE GETS THE BEAUTIFUL, BLONDE AND BLOODY ANDREA VALENTINE’S FACE BEFORE RUBBING IT AGAINST THE STEEL CAGE WALLS! THOSE CAGE WALLS ARE SURROUNDED WITH BARBED WIRE AS WELL! THE CUT ON ANDREA’S FOREHEAD OPENS UP EVEN MORE! CELES HAS SUCH A HUGE GRIN ON HER FACE AS MIHO LI IS ENJOYING THE SIGHT OF IT! IT SEEMS LIKE ANDREA’S TITLE REIGN IS IN TROUBLE, CJ! :sob: Celes leaves Andrea with her face against the cage walls! Celes takes a few steps back before connecting with a meteora to the back of Andrea’s neck! In the process, Andrea’s face bashed in with the cage walls! The Specialists Champion falls to her side! I don’t even understand how Andrea is still going! This isn’t worth it! MY SWEET ANDREA IS NOT MADE FOR THESE ENVIRONMENTS! :lupe: CELES ROLLS ANDREA BACK INTO THE RING BEFORE ROLLING HERSELF UNDERNEATH THE ROPE SOON AFTER! CELES GETS ANDREA ONTO HER SHOULDERS! IT SEEMS LIKE ANDREA IS GOING TO WRAP UP THIS MATCH! GREETINGS FOR JUNON — FIREMAN’S CARRY FACEBUSTER ON ANDREA VALENTINE!

CJ Hana: No! Andrea Valentine manages to slide out of the move before Celes Dumont could connect with it! The Specialists Champion collapses to the ground! Andrea makes it to her knees! Celes takes a few steps back! She runs towards Andrea — Glasgow Smile — running knee strike to Andrea Valentine’s head! The champion goes back! Celes goes for the cover! I think this may be it!

Marti Solo: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!! THR—

Gavin Kirkland: Andrea Valentine kicks out at the last second! Celes Dumont has no idea how Andrea managed to kick out of the Glasgow Smile! How in the world is Andrea still in this match? Both of these women are bloody messes! Andrea kicking out is only going to push Celes to go crazier! Do we really want that? :lupe: Celes exits the ring as Miho Li slips in a roll of barbed wire through the hole of the steel cage! Celes accepts it before sliding back into the ring! Celes gets some of the barbed wire before wrapping it around her knuckles! The Specialists Champion begins to rise back to her feet, but Celes runs towards Andrea before connecting with a huge punch to Andrea’s face! ANDREA DROPS INSTANTLY AS CELES GETS ON TOP OF THE BLONDE BEFORE FIRING AWAY WITH SOME BARBED WIRE PUNCHES TO ANDREA’S FACE! I’M NOT SURE HOW MUCH PUNISHMENT ANDREA CAN TAKE! ANDREA MAY PASS OUT DUE TO THE LACK OF BLOOD! CELES IS MORE MADE FOR THESE TYPES OF ENVIRONMENTS! SHE KNOWS WHAT TO DO TO KEEP HERSELF GOING! CELES GETS THE ROLL OF BARBED WIRE BEFORE WRAPPING SOME ON ANDREA’S NECK! MY DEAR STEPHON HUNTE, CELES IS GOING TO CHOKE ANDREA! :lupe: :lupe: :lupe: CELES WRAPS A DECENT AMOUNT OF BARBED WIRE ON THE CHAMPION’S NECK! CELES WITH A CHOKEHOLD ON ANDREA! THIS WAS THE SAME MOVE THAT SHE TRIED EARLIER IN THE MATCH, BUT WITH THE BARBED WIRE KENDO STICK! IT SEEMS LIKE CELES IS GOING FOR ANOTHER SHOT AT TRYING TO MAKE ANDREA TAP OUT!

CJ Hana: Andrea is still showing some signs of life! She is not letting Celes choke her with the barbed wire! Andrea elbows Celes in the face! Andrea elbows Celes in the face again! Andrea turns herself around and goes to clothesline Celes! Celes ducks and rebounds from the ropes, but Andrea connects with a spinning backfist, which takes down the challenger! Andrea follows that up with a dropkick that sends her bouncing onto the ropes! Andrea gets Celes Dumont by her arm before climbing onto the top turnbuckle and tightrope walking before connecting with a springboard arm drag! Celes gets to her feet quickly and goes after the champion! Andrea Valentine stops Celes in her tracks by connecting with a double knee facebreaker! Celes goes falling back as she rises back to her feet! ANDREA GETS THE ROLL OF BARBED WIRE THAT CELES INTRODUCED INTO THE MATCH BEFORE UNROLLING SOME OF THE BARBED WIRE AND PLACING IT ON CELES’ NECK! ANDREA WRAPS THE BARBED WIRE ON CELES’ NECK BEFORE GETTING BEHIND HER AND CONNECTING WITH A DOUBLE KNEE BACKBREAKER! SHE HAS CELES IN A SURFBOARD POSITION, BUT ANDREA GRASPS ONTO CELES’ NECK, WHILE CHOKING HER CHALLENGER OUT! :damn: :damn: :damn: ANDREA IS NOT HOLDING BACK AS SHE IS BASICALLY STRANGLING CELES WITH THAT BARBED WIRE! I THINK ANDREA IS LOOKING TO GET A SUBMISSION VICTORY HERE! ANDREA IS SCREAMING FOR CELES TO TAP OUT! ANDREA WANTS NOTHING ELSE TO RETAIN HER CHAMPIONSHIP AT PAIN FOR PRIDE!

(Before Celes Dumont could pass out, Miho Li begins to climb up the cage walls.)

Gavin Kirkland: Miho Li does not want to be inside that cage, but it seems like the thought of having someone she cares about losing this match, has made her want to do something to save the match for Celes! Andrea Valentine releases the grasp that she had on Celes Dumont! She stands up to a vertical base to confront Miho, who is looking to get inside of the cage! Miho has made their presence known in this match up! Andrea is going to do everything in her power to make sure that Miho stays out of the cage! She is already in a disadvantage! The moment Miho finds herself inside the cage, Andrea can kiss that title reign of her’s goodbye! There is no coming back from that —

CJ Hana: Miho Li has no fear! She knows that her cousin is in trouble and feels that she could be the one factor that saves Celes from throwing away this match! Andrea Valentine begins to climb up the cage walls as well! The smart thing would have been for her to escape the cage, but there’s no way that Miho would let that happen as well! Miho sits herself on to of the cage as Andrea is almost catching up to Miho! Miho is trying to kick Andrea down, but those kicks are not enough to take down the woman who is known as “The Heart of Empire”! Andrea is still trying to climb her way up! She finds herself sitting on top of the steel cage with Miho! This is a dangerous predicament to place yourself in! EACH OF THESE WOMEN ARE TRADING PUNCHES AT EACH OTHER! WITH EACH PUNCH, BOTH WOMEN ARE TEARING AND RISKING DROPPING BACK TO THE RING. MIHO WITH A PUNCH TO ANDREA! ANDREA WITH A PUNCH TO MIHO! MIHO! ANDREA! MIHO! ANDREA! ANDREA! ANDREA! ANDREA!

(The crowd is getting a little antsy, but it’s just because Andrea Valentine and Miho Li are tilting off the top of the cage.)

Gavin Kirkland: CELES DUMONT IS CLIMBING UP THE CAGE! ANDREA VALENTINE HAD JUST CAUGHT THAT! MIHO LI CONNECTS WITH A NASTY FOREARM AS THAT CAUGHT ANDREA OFF GUARD! CELES GETS ANDREA AND THROWS HER FROM THE TOP OF THE CAGE! The beautiful and blonde Andrea just took a nasty fall! This woman is motionless as Celes Dumont and Miho Li exchange grins for each other! I think they are closing in on a Specialists Championship victory, CJ! ANDREA IS DOWN, BUT IT SEEMS LIKE CELES IS GOING TO GO FOR A HIGH RISK MOVE! CELES DUMONT FROM THE TOP OF THE CAGE — IRISH DEATH, THE MOONSAULT INTO A DOUBLE FOOT STOMP ON ANDREA VALENTINE! :damn: :damn: :damn:

CJ Hana: All for the sake of the Specialists Championship, Gavin! That move connects, but we need to see a replay of that move!

(A slow motion replay of Celes Dumont nailing the Irish Death on Andrea Valentine from the top of the cage is shown.)

Gavin Kirkland: Both of these women are down, but Miho Li has made her presence known inside of the barbed wire steel cage. She drags her cousin’s lifeless body on top of Andrea Valentine! Miho is demanding for the official to count!

Marti Solo: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!! THR—

CJ Hana: Andrea Valentine powers through with a kick out! Miho Li is looking at the whole thing in shock! I have no idea how Andrea was able to power out through that, but Celes’ high risk move wasn’t enough to keep the champion down! Miho goes and gets Celes Dumont and slaps her face, trying to get her to wake up! Celes seems to be a bit out of it, but Miho gets her cousin back to her feet! Miho goes to her corner and retrieves the barbed wire baseball bat from the corner! CELES HAS A SINISTER LOOK ON HER FACE AS MIHO HANDS HER THE BARBED WIRE BASEBALL BAT! MIHO GETS THE CHAMPION TO HER FEET AND HOLDS HER UP FOR CELES TO HIT ANDREA! ANDREA IS ALREADY DEAD! THIS YOUNG WOMAN IS A BLOODY MESS! DON’T KILL HER ANYMORE!

Gavin Kirkland: I can’t look, no!

(Celes Dumont goes to swing the barbed wire baseball bat at Andrea Valentine!)

Gavin Kirkland: SHE JUST NAILED HER! :damn: :damn: :damn:

CJ Hana: ANDREA VALENTINE MOVED OUT OF THE WAY AS CELES DUMONT HIT MIHO LI WITH THE BARBED WIRE BASEBALL BAT TO THE FACE! CELES JUST KNOCKED OUT HER COUSIN! ANDREA COLLAPSES TO THE GROUND AS SHE IS TRYING TO GET SOME ENERGY TO CONTINUE THIS MATCH UP! CELES HAS A SHOCKED LOOK ON HER FACE! THIS IS NOT WHAT WAS SUPPOSED TO HAPPEN! MIHO LI IS OUT COLD! CELES IS GOING OVER TO HER COUSIN AS SHE IS TRYING TO APOLOGIZE AND GET HER TO WAKE UP, BUT IT SEEMS LIKE MIHO IS OUT FOR THE NIGHT!

Gavin Kirkland: It might be best for you to turn around, Celes! :lupe:

CJ Hana: ANDREA VALENTINE USES THAT AS AN OPPORTUNITY TO TURN CELES AROUND! ANDREA WITH A KICK TO CELES’ STOMACH! ANDREA PULLS HER IN TO CONNECT WITH A DDT! BOTH OF THESE WOMEN ARE DOWN, BUT ANDREA SLOWLY MAKES IT BACK TO HER FEET! ANDREA IS LOOKING TO WRAP UP THIS MATCH NOW! ANDREA RUNS TO CELES — LOVE HAZE — THE RUNNING CORKSCREW NECKBREAKER! THE MOVE CONNECTS! ANDREA GOES FOR THE COVER!

Marti Solo: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!! THR—

Gavin Kirkland: CELES DUMONT KICKS OUT AT THE LAST SECOND! ANDREA VALENTINE IS ON HER KNEES AS SHE IS WONDERING WHAT SHE IS GOING TO NEED TO DO TO PUT DOWN CELES! THESE TWO WOMEN HAVE PUSHED THEMSELVES TO THE LIMIT! CELES BEGINS TO RISE UP TO HER FEET! SHE THROWS A PUNCH TO ANDREA! ANDREA THROWS A PUNCH TO CELES! CELES! ANDREA! CELES! ANDREA! CELES! ANDREA! ANDREA! ANDREA! ANDREA! ANDREA WITH A SPINNING BACKFIST AS THAT KNOCKS CELES BACK! ANDREA PULLS CELES IN BEFORE CONNECTING WITH XOXO — THE INVERTED STOMP FACEBREAKER ON THE CHALLENGER! Andrea sees the barbed wire table, which was introduced in this match! It hasn’t been broken yet! Andrea gets back to her feet before setting up the table and positioning it the way that she wants too! She puts Celes Dumont back first on the table! She then gets more barbed wire from the roll of barbed wire! Look at this, CJ! She is looking to tie Celes Dumont onto the table using the barbed wire! Celes is motionless at this point! Andrea is binding Celes from her arms and legs! She is making it impossible for Celes to find any sort of movement! After Andrea is done tying Celes up, she goes to the turnbuckle! ANDREA IS POSITIONING HERSELF ON THE TURNBUCKLE! SHE IS LOOKING AROUND THE SEA OF FANS IN THE MERCEDES-BENZ STADIUM! ANDREA VALENTINE FLIES FROM THE TOP ROPE — V-DAY — THE DIVING SOMERSAULT SEATED SENTON ON CELES DUMONT! THE TABLE GOES BREAKING IN HALF! ANDREA STAYS THERE FOR THE COVER!

Marti Solo: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!! THRRRRRREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

(“Roll With Me” plays through the speakers once again. Andrea Valentine is seen in a lot of pain as she gets off of Celes Dumont. Andrea lays on her back as a wave of emotion is rushing through her. This woman is a bloody mess, but she could care less. She wanted to make it through this first title defense. She wanted to prove that she could get the job done. She did that and more. The official hans Andrea a towel to wipe her face and now, we’re able to see that gorgeous face of Andrea’s, but the blood is smeared on her.)

Maria Del Rey: THE WINNER AND STILL ELITE ANSWERS WRESTLING SPECIALISTS CHAMPION…ANNNNNDDDDDDRRRREEEEEAAAAAAAA VAAAALLLLLEEEEENNNNNTTTTIIIIIINNNNNNNNEEEEEE!!

CJ Hana: Andrea Valentine and Celes Dumont put each other through the limit! These two put each other through a war! All for the sake of the Specialists Championship! This was probably one of this event so far! It’s only the first day! :wow: :wow: :wow:

Gavin Kirkland: Can someone give Andrea Valentine a towel to wipe her face? This is not a sexy look on her face. Celes went into this match and proved that she could bring something out of Andrea! Celes gave everything in this match, but Andrea’s heart and desire to win this match was more than what people thought!

CJ Hana: Celes Dumont was in a whole other level tonight. She’s still has a bright future ahead of her if she keeps correcting these mistakes. One of these things happened by underestimating the champion. She thought that Andrea was going to be a piece of cake, but Andrea proved that she was one of the toughest women in the locker room. It doesn’t matter which brand Andrea Valentine goes after Pain for Pride, she is going to become the heart of it. :wow:

Gavin Kirkland: I need a job, please. :mjcry:

(Miho Li is seen picking up Celes Dumont and draping her arm over her shoulders. Miho, even though beaten herself, helps her cousin out of the ring. Meanwhile, Andrea Valentine gets to her knees as she has the Specialists Championship on her shoulder as she watches her opponent leave the cage. Andrea rises to her feet before raising the Specialists Championship high in the air.)

(Pain for Pride transitions backstage and Sofia Clarke is seen standing by. The beautiful Voltage interviewer looks radiant in an exclusive dress from The Visual Prophet’s Fashion Nova collection, Jimmy Choos, and diamond jewelry. Sofia’s hair and makeup are perfect, and she smiles into the camera.)

Sofia Clarke: Ladies and gentlemen, one of the most anticipated matches of Pain for Pride weekend is always the Cash in the Vault ladder match. This year, eight Elitists find themselves with the opportunity to head into Season 13 with a guaranteed chance at competing for a world championship. At this time, I’m joined by one of those Elitists, the controversial Charlie Marr.

(The shot widens and blue eyed babe Charlie Marr is shown standing beside Sofia. He looks like bearded perfection in his trademark camo cargo pants, combat boots, and Charlie Marr shirt. Standing beside him, clinging to his arm is his girlfriend, Jordie Ripley. The sexy blonde wears a scrap of a black minidress. It clings to every curve and barely covers her backside. Clear, spiked heeled stilettos are on her feet and her fluffy blonde hair is pulled into a ponytail.)

Sofia Clarke: Thank you for joining me, Charlie.

Charlie Marr: The pleasure is yours, Sofia. I’m sure this is the closest you’ve been to a real man in ages but try not to fall in love with me, alright? My girlfriend is standing right here and she’s definitely the jealous type.

Jordie Ripley: That’s because you’re so perfect, baby. I’m so lucky.

Charlie Marr: That’s right, pet. You are. Most women would die to stand beside Mr. Cash in the Vault 2019. It’s not every day that a talent like me comes along. I’ve single-handley made the Cash in the Vault match a must see match. It was never even a marquee match until my name was the one announced for it.

Sofia Clarke: Are you sure about that? There are some big names in this match, including a trio of former New Breed Champions.

Charlie Marr: I know you’re not talking about The Visual Faggot and that useless cunt Raven.

Sofia Clarke: As well as Lucas Johnson…

(Jordie tugs at Charlie’s arm.)

Jordie Ripley: Who’s Lucas?

Charlie Marr: The idiot with the headphones.

Jordie Ripley: The one with the sweaty, fat manager?

Charlie Marr: Yes. Now stop asking questions and let daddy speak.

(Jordie goes back to looking like a Barbie, all smiles and heart eyes as Charlie continues to talk.)

Charlie Marr: I think I made it perfectly clear how I feel about women being in this match, and just women’s wrestling period. Raven should stick to having her holes plugged by her superiors and if she knows what’s good for her, she will stay the fuck out of my way during the Cash in the Vault match. There is no one more deserving of winning that briefcase than me and that’s because I’m the only person in the match who is worthy of being a world champion. These other idiots and that other dumb bitch don’t hold a candle to me and tonight, I’m going to use this opportunity to put these so-called champions and championship contenders on blast. As the face of Voltage, because let me make something perfectly fucking clear. Draft or not, Voltage is my brand. I run that show and I’m the face of it, having competed in more main events than anyone. As the face of Voltage AND future world champion for the show, I’m just going to say that it doesn’t matter to me who I face for the championship when it’s time to cash in.

(Charlie’s ruggedly handsome face lights up with an arrogant smirk.)

Charlie Marr: Either Blicky bitch could walk out of their pussy three stages of hell shitshow with the EAW Championship and come over to my brand. I would beat both their asses and take their gold without blinking an eye. Both of them know what Charlie Marr is capable of, and I’ll happily show them both what a joke they are and how fucking awful it is that we have to see them have this match for the second year in a row.

(Charlie shakes his head in disgust.)

Charlie Marr: Wasn’t it some masquerading neckbeard Virgin from Empire who called that match a low point last year?

Sofia Clarke: I believe it was Layla Lockhart.

Charlie Marr: That’s what I said, Sofia. Why don’t women listen? I specifically said it was a masquerading neckbeard Virgin from Empire. Anyways, back on topic. Should the Answers World Champion find himself on Voltage next season, they can rest assured I won’t let their title reign survive on my show either. I already do a better version of Mr. DEDEDE than he does himself, and unlike him I don’t have to lie about all the bitches that I have fawning over me. I’m a stud, plain and simple, and I didn’t need some dumb shit like Gawdverbs to get me where I am right now. I’m this company’s fastest rising star and fuck anyone who tries to tell a different story. As far as Jamie goes, I already made him my bitch before. Dynasty was so scared of me and what I’m capable of, they had to stop the match between the two of us to protect that little snowflake. Poor little Jamie. What a little crybaby. And speaking of babies, god what a champion Theron’s been. Never have I seen a bigger disgrace to a title belt before and that’s saying a lot when a fake fucking edgelord held that thing before Theron. Darkane is disgusting motherfucker, and if he somehow wins the championship this weekend, I’ll do all of us a favor and cash my briefcase in right away.

Sofia Clarke: What about the men competing for the championship that’s currently on your brand?

(Charlie scoffs.)

Charlie Marr: What about them? Noah has ducked me every chance he’s gotten because he knows I’m the biggest threat to his championship. He’s scared of me, Sofia. He’s seen me dismantle people like Impact with the greatest of ease and he knows that next time I step into the ring with Rex, I’ll make a mockery out of him too. I’m the greatest wrestler alive today and there’s no denying that. Season 13 is going to be all about ‘Main Event Marr’ and when I get my hands on the world championship, I’m going to run this place just like a champion should. No one will be shown any mercy and I pity anyone who tries to stand in my way.

(Charlie smirks and Jordie runs her tongue across her perfect pink lips. She reaches up and runs her fingers through Charlie’s sexy beard.)

Jordie Ripley: They’re gunna fear the beard, right baby?

(Sofia nearly chokes and Charlie looks down at Jordie, shaking his head at her.)

Charlie Marr: I thought I told you not to speak?

(Jordie smiles sweetly.)

Jordie Ripley: I thought it was kewt.

(Charlie glares at her, and motions for her to come along. The two head off, and Sofia lets out a little laugh.)

Sofia Clarke: #FearTheBeard. Let’s go ahead and get that trending. Back to you Rich and James!

(The backstage scene fades out.)

(The crowd pops for the match graphic that flashes across the screen. A video highlight package is shown of the brutal attack on Daryl Kinkade, followed by the return of former National Elite Champion, Osamu Arcichida. The crowd inside Mercedes-Benz Stadium grow a little annoyed at this because they’re a petty group of people and can’t forget what Osamu did to Daryl. Snippets of the verbal back and forth between Arcichida and the reigning and defending National Elite Champion, Jack Ripley, is shown. The video fades out and cuts to the ring. Voltage ring announcer, Bella Braxton, is standing by.)

Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SCHEDULED FOR…

Crowd: ONE FALL!!!

Bella Braxton: AND IT’S FOR THE NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPIONSHIP!!!

(“Eyes on Fire” by Zed’s Dead begins to blast across the public address system. The crowd begins to jeer as Osamu Arcichida makes his way onto the stage. He is dressed in his finest ring attire and looks every bit like the champion he hopes to become tonight.)

Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING FIRST… HE IS THE CHALLENGER… FROM OSAKA, JAPAN… WEIGHING IN AT 234 POUNDS… HE IS OSAKA’S FINEST… OSAMU ARCICHIDA!!!!!

James Peters: Listen at the crowd reaction Osamu Arcichida is receiving right now! These fans have not been impressed whatsoever since this man has returned to action.

Rich Russillo: That’s because Osamu announced his return by attacking our Darling Daryl and taking him out of action.

James Peters: Osamu’s actions were rather sick, and honestly if I weren’t fighting so hard to be a professional right now, I would be booing the shit out of Osamu too. Daryl was one of Voltage’s brightest stars and now we might not ever see the man inside a ring again.

Rich Russillo: While I definitely understand Osamu having a chip on his shoulder, there are better ways to handle your business. Time and time again we have heard Jack Ripley state that he is a fighting champion. I absolutely believe he would have given Osamu a shot at the National Elite Championship if he had just asked for it.

(Osamu gets into the ring and poses for the crowd. They absolutely let him have it, but ‘Osaka’s Greatest’ simply takes his corner and starts to remove his outer ring attire. He did what he had to do, and you can just tell by looking at his face he has absolutely no regrets.)

(Osamu’s music fades out and is replaced by “Stitch” by Wage War. All the people that had booed the fuck out of Osamu are now on their feet and they’re cheering! As Jack Ripley makes his way on stage, the standing ovation gets even louder.)

Bella Braxton: AND HIS OPPONENT… FROM LAS VEGAS, NEVADA… WEIGHING IN AT 202 POUNDS… HE IS THE REIGNING AND DEFENDING NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPION… HE IS THE STRAIGHT SHOOTA… JACK RIPLEY!!!!

Rich Russillo: :wow: Far be it for me to throw stones at glass houses, but professional wrestling fans sure are fickle. Last year at Pain for Pride, the EAW Universe wanted to burn this man alive for the role he played in helping Mr. DEDEDE and Theron Nikolas rid EAW of Ronn Bank$.

James Peters: I agree, but you can’t sit there and say that Jack Ripley hasn’t paid the price for the sins he committed last year. Being a member of the 1% never did him any favors, and ultimately is what got him fired from Friday Night Dynasty. Karma turned out to be a bigger bitch than his slutty sister is.

Rich Russillo: Jack was forced to find new life here on Sundays, that’s for sure. Other than the incident with his sister and the bearded beauty, Big Dick Bharlie Marr, things have been smooth sailing for the RIP Daddy. Ripley has come into his own as a singles competitor and looks to defend the National Elite Championship here tonight at Pain for Pride. I know everyone was looking forward to seeing him square off against Karyl, but oh well. Osamu Arcichida made sure that match wasn’t going to happen.

James Peters: This match is still going to be pure fire though, I bet. Before his injury, Osamu was one of the best wrestlers on the Voltage roster. There’s no doubt in my mind that these two aren’t going to go all out.

(Jack is in the ring now and has already removed his outer attire. Both competitors meet in the middle of the ring separated only by the referee. The ref holds the National Elite Championships up in the air and then passes it off to Bella, who’s now standing on the outside. He checks with both men to make sure they’re ready and then calls for the bell.)

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

James Peters: And here we go!

Rich Russillo: Osamu Arcichida makes the first move of this National Elite Championship match! He dives for the knee of Jack Ripley! Ripley responds by grabbing Arcichida in a front headlock, but Osaka’s Greatest is able to latch onto Ripley’s knee! Jack is flipped on his back and Osamu looks for the Osamu Lock… but Jack is able to use his free foot to kick Osamu back and he gets back to his feet!

James Peters: Both men circle one another and are now locked in a collar and elbow tie up! It’s a feeling out process for these two because they have never stepped into the ring against one another! It’s Jack who has a side headlock in now, but Osamu elbows his way out of that and looks to grab Jack from behind! Jack blocks Osamu from taking him down with a side suplex, and he slams his knee up into the jaw of Osamu! Osamu staggers back and Jack forces Osamu back into the corner!

Rich Russillo: The Straight Shoota charges forward and lands a knee to Osamu’s face! He grabs Osamu by the hair and flips him over with a snapmare! Jack with those shoot style kicks to Osamu’s back now, and the champion is looking great here in the opening minutes of this match!

James Peters: Jack reaches down and pulls Osamu up, and looks to whip him into the ropes but Osamu plants his feet, catches Jack with an uppercut, and sends Jack back a step. Osamu once again goes for the leg, but Jack wraps him up yet again, and this time the two fall to the mat! They’re grappling around now, both of them looking for some kind of advantage over the other! It’s Osamu who finally flips Jack over onto his back and goes for a quick cover…

Rich Russillo: But the referee doesn’t even make it down in time to count the cover because Jack has already powered out! Jack is able to make it back to his feet, but Osamu is up as well! He drives his shoulder into Jack’s stomach and forces him back against the ropes! Jack fights back with another uppercut and is able to wrap his arm around Osamu’s neck! Osamu grips Jack around the waist, but before Osamu can bring Jack down to the mat, Jack wraps his legs around Osamu’s torso!

James Peters: They’re in the ropes though, and the referee is administering the count! Jack is going to have to let go! Jack does make a clean break, but he shoves Osamu back! Osamu fires back with a right hand! And a sharp kick to the stomach! Jack eats a massive chop to the chest and Osamu tosses him into the corner! Osamu stays on offense by nailing Jack with a series of shoulder thrusts! He grabs Jack by the arm and looks to whip him across the ring, but Jack is able to catch Osamu with a knee strike! He slams Osamu to the mat with a waistlock takedown, and Jack goes for a quick cover!

OOONNNEEE!!!

Rich Russillo: Osamu is easily able to power out!

James Peters: But Jack doesn’t let up! He maintains control of his challenger and he pulls Osamu up! Jack with a suplex into a bridging pin!!!!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWW–

Rich Russillo: Osamu gets the shoulder up!!!

James Peters: Jack returns to his feet as Osamu rolls to the outside of the ring and drops down to the mat! Jack is quickly to the apron and he looks to nail Osamu with ‘Daylight Slaying Time!’

Rich Russillo: Osamu has it scouted! He grabs Jack by the leg and jerks him off the apron! Jack is able to land on his feet but Osamu nails him with a huge forearm shot! Jack fires back with a forearm shot of his own! They’re trading blows now and both men aren’t holding anything back! This is for the National Elite Championship, and this is Pain for Pride!

James Peters: Osamu switches it up and catches Jack with a chop! And another! Osamu Arcichida absolutely lighting up the chest of the champion right now! He grabs Jack by the hair and slams his face off the apron! Jack staggers to the opposite side of the ring, right past the steel ring steps, and here comes Osamu! OSAMU RUNS AND JUMPS ON THE STEPS!!! FLYING FOREARM SMASH! JACK RIPLEY IS DOWN!

Rich Russillo: Osamu grabs Jack up and he chops him a few more times before unleashing a kick that catches Ripley in the side of the head! Osamu rushes forward, grabs Jack, and he throws him right into the ringpost! The referee is counting both men out right now so Osamu grabs Jack and attempts to roll him back into the ring! Jack latches on to the ropes and Osamu tries to pull him off! But Jack is able to nail him with a kick, and that forces Osamu back a bit!

James Peters: Jack pulls himself up using the ropes, and Osamu scrambles onto the apron! Both men return to a vertical base. Jack pushes forward and catches Osamu with a punch the rib cage area! Osamu fires back with a right hand that catches Jack in the face! Jack with a palm strike! Osamu with a right hand! PALM STRIKE! RIGHT HAND! JACK! OSAMU! THEY ARE TRADING SHOTS RIGHT THERE ON THE APRON!

Rich Russillo: IT’S OSAMU WHO GRABS JACK AND SLAMS HIS KNEE INTO JACK’S FACE! HE DOES IT AGAIN! AND AGAIN! OSAMU GRABS JACK AND SWITCHES THEIR POSITIONS… RAMMING JACK BACK FIRST INTO THE POST! HE GRABS JACK UP!!! BACKBREAKER ONTO THE HARDEST PART OF THE RING!

James Peters: Osamu is the first man back to his feet and he grabs Jack by the hair and throws him back into the ring. He climbs back in after him and follows Jack, as the champ rolls over into the corner. Jack attempts to get back to his feet and Osamu is right there to help him out! He chops Jack back against the corner and begins putting the boots to him! Jack is forced into a sitting position and all the while Osamu continues to stomp away!

Rich Russillo: The last thing Osamu wants to do is get disqualified in this match! He has been so aggressive since returning and taking out Daryl Kinkade, and now it seems like he is going to start targeting Jack’s left knee! If Jack gets caught in the Osamu Lock that could surely be the end of this championship reign for him. Osamu stomps away on that left knee and he grabs Jack by the ankle and pulls him to the center of the ring! Osamu with an elbow to the knee and he begins hammering away on it! Jack is trying to fight back but Osamu starts throwing hands to the face of the champ. Osamu is back up and he jumps in the air! DOUBLE FOOT STOMP RIGHT DOWN ON THE KNEE OF THE CHAMP!!!!

James Peters: You can see just how badly that hurt Jack, Rich. The pain is written all over his face and I’m a little worried for our champion right now. Osamu Arcichida has Jack by the leg again and he pulls him over to the ring post. Osamu rolls to the outside now, and he grabs Jack’s ankle. OSAMU SLAMS JACK’S LEG INTO THE RINGPOST AND NOW HE IS GOING FOR A FIGURE FOUR!!!!

Rich Russillo: OSAMU ARCICHIDA WITH A FIGURE FOUR LEGLOCK AROUND THE RINGPOST AND THE REFEREE HAS TO GET IN THERE! THIS IS NOT LEGAL!!!

James Peters: Osamu breaks the hold but I think the damage has already been done! There’s no doubt in my mind that Osamu is looking to not only regain the National Elite Championship he never technically lost, but he is looking to end Jack’s career too!

Rich Russillo: The referee is checking on Jack, but Osamu doesn’t let that stop him! He grabs Jack’s leg and slams it into the ring post once again!

James Peters: Osamu slips back into the ring and he drags Jack to the middle. He picks up the champ and there’s THE BEST NORTHERN LIGHTS SUPLEX IN THE BUSINESS!!!

Rich Russillo: OSAMU WITH THE PIN!!!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOO–

James Peters: JACK WITH THE KICK OUT!!!

Rich Russillo: Osamu rolls over and gets back to his knees. He reaches for Jack’s leg once again and returns to his feet! Single leg Boston Crab now! Osamu seamlessly transitioned into that submission hold and Jack is reaching for the ropes! He is desperate right now and he has absorbed a lot of punishment these last few minutes. Osamu is clearly targeting that knee and we know he can lock in that rolling kneebar submission at any moment.

James Peters: Jack is scratching and clawing his way to the ropes though. This is one of the biggest matches Jack has ever competed in and we all know he’s not going to give up now. He wants to defend that belt and leave Atlanta the same way he arrived! This crowd is cheering for Jack as he fights his way to the ropes! Osamu tries to drag Jack back to the middle of the ring, but the Straight Shoota stretches as far as he can, getting his fingertips on the ropes! The referee screams at Osamu to break the hold, and Osamu finds himself with no other choice! He lets go right before the referee gets to five!!!

Rich Russillo: Osamu runs the ropes and comes rebounding back! Basement style dropkick to Jack, and the champ hits the floor!

James Peters: Osamu is on the outside of the ring now and he clubs Jack in the face with yet another forearm. He grabs Jack up and whips him into the ring steps! Osamu goes over to Jack and starts putting the boots to him once again! Those stomps are landing on that left knee, and I’m not sure how much more of this Jack Ripley can take! Osamu clearly came out here with a plan tonight and so far he is executing it perfectly. He takes Jack, throws him back into the ring, and gets back in himself. Osamu scoots over towards Jack and grabs him by the leg, slamming his knee right into the mat!

Rich Russillo: Jack grabs his left knee and rolls to the side, but Osamu isn’t about to let him off the hook now. He grabs Jack’s leg and HE IS GOING FOR THE OSAMU LOCK!!!! JACK SOMEHOW MANAGES TO COUNTER AND HE GETS OSAMU INTO A SMALL PACKAGE!!!!!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!!

TTTTTH–

James Peters: Osamu kicks out! He is back to his feet first because Jack is still down with that knee! Osamu with a knee strike to Jack’s face and HE IS GOING FOR THE OSAMU LOCK!!!! OSAMU ARCICHIDA HAS JACK RIPLEY IN THE ROLLING KNEE BAR SUBMISSION AND RIPLEY IS SCREAMING IN PAIN!!!!

Rich Russillo: BUT WAIT A SECOND!!! THEY’RE BY THE ROPES!!! JACK IS ABLE TO GET HIS OTHER LEG ON THE ROPES!!!!

James Peters: Jack Ripley with that Vegas luck coming through.

Rich Russillo: Osamu has no choice but to break the hold because the title can not change hands on a disqualification! Jack quickly pulls himself onto the apron. Osamu stalks his prey and Ripley gets himself in a sitting position. I have no idea how Jack is going to win this match because he’s clearly hurt. Osamu climbs onto the apron and he’s sizing Jack up right now! Osamu looking for a running knee strike!

James Peters: JACK MOVES AND OSAMU SLAMS INTO THE RINGPOST! THIS COULD BE THE OPENING JACK NEEDS TO GET HIMSELF BACK INTO THIS MATCH!!!!

Rich Russillo: Jack is on the outside now, but he’s basically on one leg! He grabs Osamu and jerks him down to the ground! Osamu lands on his knees and Jack grabs him by the hair, slamming his face right off the apron of the ring! Jack does it again and he is ruthlessly slamming Osamu’s face into the ring now! Jack shifts his weight now, testing his hurt knee out! Jack can put some weight on it, but he grabs the ropes for leverage! Jack is showing a lot of grit tonight as he begins unleashing a series of kicks! They are striking Osamu in the back of the head and Osaka’s favorite son slumps down to the mat! Jack limps over to his challenger and jerks him up by the hair, and he slams his knee into Osamu’s face! Jack follows that up with another knee strike! Several more follow! Jack jerks Osamu up and bounces his face off the ring steps! Jack throws Osamu back inside the ring and slides in behind him!

James Peters: Jack gets back to his feet and he is waiting for Osamu to do the same! I know what Ripley is planning!

Rich Russillo: OSAMU IS BACK UP NOW AND THERE GOES JACK! YOU’LL FLOAT TOO!!!!!

James Peters: NO!

Rich Russillo: JACK’S LEFT KNEE JUST BUCKLE AND HE’S DOWN! OSAMU SEIZES THE MOMENT AND KICKS JACK RIGHT IN THE FACE! JACK FALLS BACK! OSAMU WITH ANOTHER DOUBLE FOOT STO–

James Peters: JACK ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY! OSAMU WHIPS AROUND AND JACK IS ONCE AGAIN ON THE APRON OF THE RING! OSAMU REACHES BETWEEN THE ROPES TO GRAB JACK, BUT JACK IS ABLE TO CATCH HIM IN THE FACE WITH HIS FOOT! OSAMU FALLS BACK AND JACK USES THE ROPES TO PULL HIMSELF UP! OSAMU COMES BACK AT JACK, BUT JACK IS ABLE TO CATCH OSAMU WITH A SHOULDER TO THE GUT THROUGH THE ROPES! JACK JUMPS UP!!! JACK FLIPS OVER THE ROPES AND BRINGS OSAMU DOWN INTO A PINNING POSITION!

Rich Russillo: OSAMU ROLLS BACKWARDS THOUGH AND SPRINGS UP! HE CATCHES JACK WITH A DROP KICK TO THE FACE AND GOES FOR THE COVER!!!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWW–

James Peters: JACK GETS HIS SHOULDER UP!!!

Rich Russillo: OSAMU IS QUICKLY UP TO HIS KNEES AND HE GOES FOR JACK’S LEGS! JACK GRABS OSAMU’S ARM AND ROLLS OVER… LOOKING FOR A MODIFIED ARMBAR! OSAMU FLIPS OUT OF IT AND GRABS JACK IN A FRONT FACELOCK! JACK WORKS HIS WAY OUT OF IT AND GRABS OSAMU BY THE WAIST! HE ROLLS HIM UP BUT OSAMU KICKS OUT QUICKLY!

James Peters: Jack is having trouble putting weight down on the left knee, Rich, and Osamu is right back in this match. Both men are back up and they are locked up with one another! It’s Osamu who pushes Jack back against the ropes! Osamu breaks and catches Jack in the stomach with a kick! Jack is still fighting! He fires off a series of punches to the face and head of Osamu! Jack shoves Osamu and he uses the ropes to push himself forward!!!! DAYLIGHT SLAYING TIME!!!!

Rich Russillo: That might have hurt Jack just as much as Osamu though!!!

James Peters: Jack Ripley is on his back and clutching his knee! He has got to try and fight through this and go for the pin right now! Osamu Arcichida is down for the count and Jack could retain his championship!

Rich Rusillo: Jack FINALLY rolls over and throws an arm over Osamu!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!!

TTTTTHHH–

James Peters: NO!!!!

Rich Russillo: JACK CLOSES HIS EYES AND SHAKES HIS HEAD! THE NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPION CRAWLS OVER TO THE ROPES AND HE PULLS HIMSELF UP! JACK BEGINS CLIMBING TO THE TOP!!! HE’S GINGERLY STANDING ON THE TOP ROPE NOW AND I’M NOT SURE IF HE SHOULD DO THIS! THIS IS SO RISKY!

James Peters: IT’S PAIN FOR PRIDE AND JACK IS TRYING TO RETAIN HIS CHAMPIONSHIP! JACK LEAPS OFF THE TOP ROPE!!! RIPLEY’S BELIEVE IT OR NOT!!!

Rich Russillo: JACK CONNECTS WITH THE SHOOTING STAR PRESS!!!! COVER HIM JACK!!!!

James Peters: JACK FINALLY GETS HIMSELF IN POSITION AND HE HOOKS THE LEG!!!!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!!

TTTTTHHHHHRRRRREEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… HERE IS YOUR WINNER AND STILL NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPION… JACK RIPLEY!!!!!

Rich Russillo: WHAT A GUTSY PERFORMANCE PUT ON TONIGHT BY THE NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPION!

James Peters: Osamu Arcichida did everything he could to take away Jack’s right knee, but when he got the Osamu Lock cinched in, he was too close to the ropes! He allowed Jack to escape and prove to everyone why he is so much more than just a tag team guy or a lackey! Jack Ripley is a resourceful, intelligent, and downright fearless professional wrestler!

Rich Russillo: And he is still the Elite Answers Wrestling National Elite Champion!

(“Stitch” by Wage War is playing as the referee has helped Jack up to his feet. Jack has to wrap an arm around the other man to hold himself up, but the smile on his face can not be mistaken. He is given his championship and he holds it high in the air.)

James Peters: It’s been one hell of a year for Jack Ripley. This man has seen the highest of highs, and the lowest of lows, but everything just came full circle for him here tonight! Jack began Season 12 as the holder of the 24/7 Contract, giving him a cash in opportunity at any championship he wanted. After being scrutinized and criticized for his use of it, and having an unremarkable PURE Championship reign, Jack got his chance at redemption with the National Elite Championship.

Rich Russillo: Fuck him forever for taking that belt from my President, but hats off to Jack. He did an amazing job here tonight.

(The camera takes a final shot of Jack Ripley, being held up by the referee while holding up his National Elite Championship, before fading into a commercial break.)

(“All It Takes For Your Dreams to Come True” by A Skylit Drive begins to play throughout the Mercedes-Benz Stadium as Amber Keys makes her way through the curtains to a huge mixed reaction from the Atlanta, Georgia crowd. She confidently walks on stage with an arrogant look while she pauses on stage then looks through the entire crowd, captivated by the essence of Pain for Pride. She pans over the crowd and then directs her focus back to the ring, eyes unwavering as she stares directly down the ramp and begins her strut.)

Maria Del Rey: The following contest is a CAREER VERSUS CAREER match and it’s scheduled for…

Crowd: ONE FALL!

Maria Del Rey: Introducing first, from The Bronx, New York and weighing in at 135 pounds… SHE IS “THE DIIIRRRRTIIII DIIIVAAAAA”…AAAAAMMMMBEEERRRRRRR KEEEEEEEEYYYYYSSSSS!

Gavin Kirkland: PINCH ME, CEEJ, I MUST BE DREAMING! :blessed: I could not be more excited for this moment right here, CJ! It’s finally happening. It’s finally time for my lovely queen to put an end to Amber Keys’ career. Say goodbye to Amber Keys–forever.

CJ Hana: I wouldn’t put anything past Amber, Gavin. She’s a very talented competitor, just as much as Cleopatra is. And truth be told, I don’t think anyone is ready for this. As you know, these two women were inseparable, the absolute best of friends for months within the EAW thanks to their time together in the Queen’s Court. But everything fell apart at Terminus this year when Amber Keys viciously attacked Cleopatra and left the Hall of Famer in a pool of her own blood. Of course, it didn’t stop there, because Amber Keys has set it upon herself to embarrass Cleopatra the following weeks leading up to Pain for Pride and resulting in an enraged Cleopatra accepting this match under one condition. One of these two legends will be forced to never compete inside an EAW ring ever again.

Gavin Kirkland: Just look at that snake, Amber Keys inside that ring with that “Dirti” smirk on her face. She’s in for a rude awakening in just a few moments. Dirti bitch. :scusthov:

CJ Hana: Are you still upset that Amber gave you a boo-boo at Terminus? I told you not to intervene between them.

Gavin Kirkland: I would do anything for the love of my life. She’s just perfect to me. I don’t know what I’ll do without her in the EAW, and I’ll be damned if it’s Amber Keys of all people who take her away from me. Not on my watch, Ceej.

(“All It Takes For Dreams to Come True” fades out as the raucous crowd begins chanting and jeering at Amber Keys. She ignores them, despite her usual tendency to argue back and threaten the fans in the arena. She stands against a far turnbuckle corner, arms stretched across the ropes and legs crossed. The camera hones in on her emotionless face, piercing eyes focused on the stage and awaiting her competitor.)

(“Mona Lisa” by Lil Wayne featuring Kendrick Lamar begins to play as the crowd gives Cleopatra a HUGE ovation. Cleopatra is sporting a red and white Maple Leaf attire. She steps out onto the stage, not with her usual confidence as she looks a bit nervous while staring at her former partner in the middle of the ring. Nevertheless, she plays up to the crowd for a moment before making her way down the ramp.)

Maria Del Rey: And her opponent…from Montreal, Quebec, Canada and weighing in at 128 pounds… she is the “QUEEEEEN OF THE NIILLLLLEE”, CLLLLEEEEEEEOOOOOOPAAAAAATRRRRRAAAAAAA!

Gavin Kirkland: Ladies and gentlemen, play close attention to this work of art right here. You are witnessing the greatest Vixen to ever live! The longest reigning Vixen’s champion! The Hall of Famer! THE GOAT! MY WIFE AND FUTURE MOTHER OF MY CHILDREN! SHE LOOKS SO FUCKING HOT! MY DICK IS ROCK HARD! I LOVE YOU CLEO!

CJ Hana: You know, Gavin…I might actually miss hearing you fangirling over Cleopatra if she loses…

Gavin Kirkland: What? Really?

CJ Hana: no.

Gavin Kirkland: :mjcry:

CJ Hana: Can you just for once stay focus on the match? Please?

Gavin Kirkland: How can you focus when staring at the most beautiful creation that God ever made? :wow:

CJ Hana: Anyway, it doesn’t look like Cleopatra has the same energy as you, Gavin. It’s not quite normal at all seeing Cleo looking as nervous as she does, as she steps inside the ring. :lupe:

(Amber Keys kicks off from the turnbuckle and makes her way towards Cleopatra who stands on the opposite side of the ring. The referee stands in between them to prevent an altercation as “Mona Lisa” dies down and the crowd goes into an absolute frenzy.)

Crowd: LET’S GO CLE-O! LET’S GO AMB-ER! LET’S GO CLE-O! LET’S GO AMB-ER! LET’S GO CLE-O! LET’S GO AMB-ER! LET’S GO CLE-O! LET’S GO AMB-ER!

CJ Hana: This crowd might have favored Cleopatra earlier on into this feud, but it’s looking like gears may have shifted. There’s obviously some fans that don’t want to see Amber Keys end this incredible comeback, just the same as Cleopatra’s miracle return.

Gavin Kirkland: I don’t care what the fans want. I want Amber to go lie back inside her coffin and shipped back wherever EAW found the old skeleton.

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

CJ Hana: And this match has begun! The referee finally has managed to get Amber to remain calm while Cleopatra just stares at her former best friend, she almost looks afraid and regretful of accepting this match. Amber Keys walks right in Cleo’s face again and starts yelling ridiculous profanity.

Amber Keys (off-mic): There’s no one to save you now, bitch!

Gavin Kirkland: What is Cleo doing? This is unlike her…fight back, Cleo! You have fans around the world that came to see you deliver another high-class performance. Don’t let Amber bully you around!

CJ Hana: She isn’t moving an inch, Gavin. I think for the first time of her EAW career, the confidence of Cleopatra has gone away. She looks shook as Amber pushes Cleo backwards but there’s still no retaliation from Cleo! The fans are booing as Cleo just continues to stare at Amber! AND NOW A SLAP TO THE FACE BY AMBER TO CLEOPATRA! AND NOW CLEO FINALLY STEPS UP TO AMBER’S FACE! THAT SHOULD GET HER ATTENTION!

Gavin Kirkland: YES! I LOVE IT! C’MON CLEO–wait a minute. She’s still not doing anything!? :dahell:

CJ Hana: I don’t know what’s wrong, but Cleo is still not doing anything as Amber Keys laughs then spits in her face! The crowd is shocked as Cleo’s head turns after that spit to the face. THEN AMBER KEYS HITS A CLOTHESLINE ON CLEOPATRA! CLEO CRASHES ON THE MAT! AMBER IS NOW TAUNTING THE CROWD AS SHE LIFTS HER ARMS IN THE AIR AND CIRCLES AROUND THE FALLEN CLEOPATRA!

Amber Keys (off-mic): Is this your Queen?! Awwww…poor little Cleo don’t wanna fight back because she’s too scared of mean ol’ Amber Keys.

Gavin Kirkland: I can’t watch this…this is more brutal to watch than the attack at Terminus as Amber pushes Cleo while she’s trying to stand back up on her feet! Cleo keeps stumbling back onto the mat and now Amber with a kick to the gut! Cleo flips around holding her stomach as Amber continues to play with her like she was a piece of meat.

CJ Hana: Amber Keys grabs Cleopatra back to her feet in a playful manner, toying with Cleo’s legs as Cleopatra tries to recover from those vicious kicks.

Amber Keys (off-mic): I’m sorry old friend. You need some help?

Gavin Kirkland: Why is Amber playing with her like this? Hasn’t she done enough irreparable psychological damage? Amber helps Cleo back up, but then she quickly grabs her for the DDT!!! CLEO’S FACE IS PLANTED ON THE MAT! AMBER IS COMPLETELY DOMINATING BECAUSE CLEOPATRA IS SHOWING NO SIGNS OF WILLINGNESS TO FIGHT!

CJ Hana: I don’t understand! Cleo, this is your career. You have to stand up to Amber! Amber Keys should just end this match now but sadly, I think she wants to continue this embarrassment on the Hall of Famer. Amber Keys places her hands on Cleo’s blonde hair once again, holding her head up for the crowd to see how worthless she is right now. Then she throws Cleopatra back down on the mat.

Amber Keys (off-mic): Just as I thought. Pathetic.

Gavin Kirkland: I think Amber is signalling for the end here… she sits back in the corner of the ring, awaiting for Cleopatra to move back onto her feet! AMBER ALERT!!! AMBER ALERT!!! THAT’S ALL SHE WROTE!!!

CJ Hana: NO!! GAVIN! CLEOPATRA MOVES OUT OF THE WAY AS AMBER GOES FLYING SHOULDER-FIRST INTO THE RING POST! THIS CROWD CHEERS FOR CLEOPATRA AS SHE FINALLY REACTS TO SOMETHING! CLEOPATRA FINALLY SHOWING SOME SIGNS OF LIFE IN THIS MATCHUP AS SHE FIGHTS BACK AND COUNTERS AMBER!

Gavin Kirkland: YES! BABY! FUCK YEAH! KICK HER FUCKING ASS, SHOW THAT DIRTI BITCH WHO’S BOSS!

CJ Hana: Amber didn’t see that one coming–she turns around then she met by a right hand from Cleopatra! Then another! Cleopatra tackles Amber down onto the mat then starts raining down more shots on the former AWF Women’s Champion! Cleo has lost it here! SHE IS GOING BALLISTIC ON AMBER WITH THOSE SHOTS! SHE’S FINALLY HAD ENOUGH OF THE MIND GAMES, ENOUGH OF THE TORMENT! CLEOPATRA LIFTS AMBER BACK ONTO HER FEET THEN GOES FOR THE SUPLEX POWERSLAM AND IT CONNECTS! NOW CLEOPATRA COVERS AMBER!

Referee: ONE!

TWO!!!

Gavin Kirkland: But Amber Keys kicks out, and manages to roll outside of the ring! Cleopatra goes right after her as Amber Keys slides back into the ring…Cleo is behind her but Amber quickly uses her elbow and slams it on top of Cleo’s head as she enters the ring! Amber retakes advantage over Cleo as she grabs her arm for an armbar! SHE HAS IT LOCKED IN! BUT QUICKLY, OUT OF DESPERATION, CLEO USES HER FEET FOR A ROPE BREAK! THE REFEREE FORCES AMBER TO BREAK THE ARMBAR BUT AMBER CONTINUES TO HOLD TIGHTLY FOR A MOMENT THEN RELEASES IT!

CJ Hana: Cleo is holding onto her arm now while Amber hops on the top turnbuckles for a knee drop as she lands right on top of Cleopatra! Amber goes for a pin-fall once Cleo drops onto the mat.

Referee: ONE!

TWO!

Gavin Kirkland: Kickout by Cleo! Amber quickly gets back up on her feet and stomps Cleopatra but soon afterwards, she grabs Cleo then throws her outside of the ring! Cleo sits on the outside of the ring next to the cameraman as Amber bounces off the ring ropes and goes for suicide dive onto the outside on Cleopatra!

CJ Hana: BUT THERE’S NOBODY HOME! CLEO PUSHES THE CAMERA-MAN IN THE WAY AS AMBER GOES CRASHING ONTO THE CAMERAMAN! :damn:

Gavin Kirkland: I think we might need someone to help our camera crew! Amber Keys’ head bounces off that camera and Cleo escapes near the barricade! Cleopatra sees the damage done as Amber is not moving an inch from that high-risk maneuver! Cleo rolls Amber back into the ring and–what the?! Cleo is tuning up the band?

CJ Hana: It looks like Cleo is paying tribute to her mentor, the Heart Break Boy! We’re about to get a little Goldprint from the former Project E.G.O. member! She awaits for Amber to get back onto her feet! IT’S TIME TO HEAR SOME MUSIC!!! GOLDPRINT!!! GOLDPRINT FROM CLEOPATRA CONN–!! NO! AMBER ALERT!! AMBER ALERT!!! WHAT A COUNTER FROM AMBER KEYS! CLEO DIVES RIGHT INTO AN AMBER ALERT FROM AMBER KEYS!! AND BOTH WOMEN ARE DOWN! NOW AMBER REACHES OVER FOR THE COVER ON CLEOPATRA WITH EVERY INCH OF HER LIFE!! THIS MAY BE OVER RIGHT HERE!!

Referee: ONE!!

TWOOOOOO!!

Gavin Kirkland: NO! CLEOPATRA IS ABLE TO KICK-OUT AT THE LAST SECOND! BAH GAWD! I THOUGHT MY BABY’S CAREER WAS OVER RIGHT THEN AND THERE!

CJ Hana: I must admit, that was a great move by Amber! That spear may have took the life out of Cleopatra…but what more could she do to end the career of Cleopatra? Surprisingly, Cleopatra is making her way back to her feet…Amber makes her way back over and dives right at Cleo’s ankle! Cleopatra falls down on her knees then Amber grabs one of her legs for an attempted ankle lock! BUT CLEO IS ABLE TO ROLL OUT OF IT! AMBER GOES FLYING INTO THE TURNBUCKLE! HOWEVER! AMBER QUICKLY CLIMBS UP THE ROPES AGAIN FOR A BACKWARDS MOONSAULT! SHE GOES FOR IT BUT CLEO MOVES OUT OF THE WAY ONCE AGAIN!

Gavin Kirkland: BUT AMBER LANDS ON HER FEET….AWKWARDLY! Amber lands on her feet but then falls down holding onto her own ankle! I think Amber has been hurt as the referee goes over to support her. Cleopatra looks a bit confused and concerned while Amber screams in pain for her ankle!

CJ Hana: Amber is clearly in need of some medical attention as the referee has begun signaling for paramedics as she is helped back onto her feet by the referee. Cleopatra just stands there, resting by the turnbuckles then leans forward to hear about the situation! BUT WAIT A SECOND! SUPERKICK! SUPERKICK BY AMBER KEYS! SHE JUST FAKED HER INJURY AND HIT CLEOPATRA WITH A GOLDPRINT OF HER OWN! Smart moves from the ever-so tricky Dirti Diva!

Gavin Kirkland: They don’t call her the Dirti Diva for nothing! And now look at Amber Keys! She has Cleo where she wants her! SHE IS GRITTING HER TEETH LIKE SHE’S KOBE BRYANT OUT THERE AND STEPS BACK INTO THE CORNER FOR ANOTHER AMBER ALERT ATTEMPT! CLEOPATRA IS SLOWLY MAKING HER BACK UP! PLEASE, DON’T GET UP BABE!

CJ Hana: AMMMBERRRRR ALLLEERRRRTTTTT!

Gavin Kirkland: NO!!! CLEO PUSHES THE REFEREE IN THE WAY AND AMBER ENDS UP HITTING THE AMBER ALERT ONTO THE REFEREE!! The referee is out cold as Amber Keys looks shocked then turns around to Cleopatra! BUT WAIT, THERE SHE GOES! CLEOPATRA TAKES AMBER DOWN AND LOCKS IN A SHARPSHOOTER! THE SHARPSHOOTER IS LOCKED IN TIGHTLY!!! AND AMBER IS SCREAMING IN PAIN!! SHE’S TRYING TO MAKE HER WAY TOWARDS THE RING ROPES BUT DOES IT EVEN MATTER? THE REFEREE IS DOWN!

CJ Hana: CLEOPATRA MOVES AMBER BACK INTO THE MIDDLE OF THE RING!! SHE HAS AMBER RIGHT WHERE SHE WANTS HER!! THE CROWD IS SCREAMING FOR AMBER TO TAP OUT! BUT SHE STEADY REFUSES!! IT’LL TAKE A LOT MORE FOR AMBER TO GIVE UP IN THIS MATCH, THAT WOMAN’S DETERMINATION IS UNWAVERING!

Gavin Kirkland: AMBER IS CRAWLING NOW AND FIGHTING FOR THOSE RING ROPES AS SHE FINALLY MANAGES TO GRAB AHOLD BUT CLEO CONTINUES TO APPLY PRESSURE BECAUSE THE REFEREE IS STILL DOWN! AMBER CAN’T BREAK THE HOLD!! THIS MIGHT BE IT HERE…

CJ Hana: WAIT A SECOND! AMBER MANAGES TO FLIP HERSELF AROUND AS SHE GRABS CLEO AND REVERSES THE SHARPSHOOTER INTO THE GUILLOTINE CHOKE! LOOK AT THE STRENGTH BY AMBER, AS SHE GRABS CLEO’S NECK INTO THAT CHOKEHOLD! AND NOW CLEO’S IN TROUBLE! CLEO CAN HARDLY BREATHE! SHE BETTER TAP OUT, AMBER KEYS REFUSES TO LET GO, THE ONLY WAY OUT OF THIS IF NOT TO TAP IS FOR CLEO TO PASS RIGHT OUT! Amber did say she was going to take Cleo’s breath away, didn’t she…

Gavin Kirkland: Huh? Cleo is–she’s BITING Amber’s hand out of desperation! Oh, goodness, CJ, I think I might have a biting kink…but more on that later! Amber is forced to break the hold as the pain from Cleo’s beautiful pearly whites is too much for her to take. She might be bleeding! Amber is holding her hand now as Cleo tries to recover over in the other corner! I don’t even know if that was enough to deter Amber, really, looks like the blood might’ve just pissed her off. What is she thinking now?!

CJ Hana: Amber Keys is digging something out of her back-pocket! SHE HAS BRASS-KNUCKLES! THE SAME BRASS KNUCKLES SHE BROKE RAVEN ROBERTS’ NOSE WITH AT ROAD TO REDEMPTION! Remember folks, the referee is STILL down so, really, anything goes…Amber Keys is going to resort to cheating to win this match as the referee is seemingly returning to life, Gavin. Can’t say that I’m at all surprised.

Gavin Kirkland: FUCK! NO!! NOT THIS WAY!! NOT! ON!! MY!!! **WATCH!!!**

CJ Hana: Amber Keys grips those brass knuckles, and slips them right onto her fingers! She’s loving every moment leading up to this. Winding up the band, so to speak, as she’s about to knock the lights out of the Queen of the Nile! AND–WHAT THE HELL?! GAVIN, WHAT ARE YOU DOING?

(A loud pop is heard and the camera focuses its attention to Gavin Kirkland who has dropped his headset and rushes into the ring. He grabs Amber Keys’ hand, but Amber is quick to push him off as Gavin goes rolling outside of the ring, landing right on his bottom. The distraction is enough for a moment, as Amber now turns her all of her attention onto Gavin. Cleopatra is seen setting up for the–)

CJ Hana: BRUTALITY!!! AMBER RUNS INTO CANADIAN DESTROYER BY CLEOPATRA, ALL THANKS TO GAVIN KIRKLAND!! I can’t believe he managed to make it out of there alive–AND CLEOPATRA QUICKLY GOES FOR THE COVER ON AMBER AS THE REFEREE IS WAKING UP WITH JUST ENOUGH ENERGY TO START THE COUNT! THIS COULD BE IT!! AMBER’S CAREER IS OVER!

(Some shuffling and panting is heard over at the commentary table, as Gavin throws his headset back on.)

Gavin Kirkland: THAT’S ALL SHE WROTE! THAT’S GOTTA BE ALL! THERE IS NO WAY IN HELL THAT AMBER KEYS IS GETTING UP FROM THAT ONE!

Referee: ONE!!!

TWOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

CJ Hana: NO!! AMBER KICKS OUT!! HOW DID SHE DO THAT?! CLEOPATRA IS STUNNED, AS WELL AS THIS ENTIRE CROWD!! GODDAMMIT, I’M STUNNED, TOO! THAT SHOULD’VE BEEN IT FOR AMBER KEYS! YET, HER CAREER LIVES!

Gavin Kirkland: :kellycry: :kellycry: :kellycry: :kellycry:

CJ Hana: CLEO, QUICK TO HER FEET STILL, AWAITS AMBER AS SHE SIGNALS FOR ANOTHER BRUTALITY!! CAN SHE DO IT?! WILL CLEOPATRA GET HER REVENGE ON HER FORMER BEST FRIEND AND PROVE ONCE AND FOR ALL THAT SHE WAS THE HEART AND SOUL OF THE QUEEN’S COURT?! CLEO GRABS AMBER KEYS–BUT WAIT!!! AMBER KEYS IS ABLE TO PUSH CLEO BACK INTO THE TURNBUCKLES!! CLEO CLIMBS THE TURNBUCKLES–CLEOPATRA IS GOING FOR A HIGH-FLYING MOVE HERE!!!

Gavin Kirkland: GET HER, CLEO!! MAKE HER PAY FOR EVERYTHING SHE’S DONE TO OUR FAMILY!

CJ Hana: BUT AMBER STOPS CLEO IN HER TRACKS AS SHE CLIMBS UP THE ROPES WITH HER!! CLEO WITH A STRONG RIGHT HAND TO THE SKULL OF AMBER AS BOTH OF THESE WOMEN BALANCE THEMSELVES ON THE TOP TURNBUCKLE! LOOK! CLEO SPITS IN THE FACE OF AMBER, RETURNING THE FAVOR, MUCH TO THE APPROVAL OF THIS CAPACITY CROWD WHO NOW STANDS ON THEIR FEET! IT’S ENOUGH TO SLOW AMBER DOWN, SHE TEETERS, AND NOW CLEO IS SETTING AMBER UP FOR THE CANADIAN DESTROYER FROM THE TOP ROPE!!

Gavin Kirkland: YES!! YES!!! YES!!! THIS SURELY COULD END IT!! :blessed: :blessed: :blessed:

CJ Hana: IF CLEO HITS THIS MOVE, THIS WILL DEFINITELY BE THE ENDING FOR THE LEGACY OF DIRTI DIVA!! CLEO HAS AMBER TUCKED IN-BETWEEN HER LEG–DAMN! NO! AMBER WITH A COUNTER!!! SHE IS ABLE TO FLIP CLEO ONTO THE MAT! THE BACK OF THE QUEEN OF THE NILE’S SKULL SLAMS AGAINST THE MAT!! I’m no doctor, but that looks like a concussion to me…

Gavin Kirkland: NOOOOOOOOOO!!!! :kellycry: CLEOPATRA LAYING LIFELESS ONTO THE MAT–I THINK SHE’S HURT HER HEAD. GOD DAMMIT, BABY, WHY DID YOU HAVE TO GO FOR THE HIGH RISK MANEUVER?!?!

CJ Hana: DIRTI DIVE!!! FROG SPLASH CONNECTS FROM AMBER KEYS!!!! I COULD FEEL THE IMPACT OF THAT FROG SPLASH FROM HERE, AS AMBER GRABS HER MIDSECTION! CLEOPATRA DOES NOT LOOK GOOD RIGHT NOW. :lupe: AND AMBER–REALIZING SHE MAY HAVE IT HERE! SHE SCURRIES ACROSS THE RING MAT AND SHE GOES FOR THE COVER!!!

Referee: ONEEEEEE!!!

CJ Hana: :damn: :damn: :damn:

TWOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

Gavin Kirkland: :lupe: :lupe: :lupe:

THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

(“All It Takes For Dreams to Come True” blasts through the arena speakers as Amber Keys is barely able to stand over the fallen Cleopatra, who still lies unconscious. The look on her face reads a mix of emotions, ranging from elation, relief, frustration, and apparently, sadness. She sits up on her knees as she scowls, tears raining down her cheeks as she stares down at Cleopatra.)

Maria Del Rey: Here’s your winner of the match…AAAAMBEERRRRR KEEEEYYYYYYYYSSSSS!

CJ Hana: My heart just sank. Literally sank to the bottom of my stomach, this is…I can’t believe this. That’s really all she wrote, Gavin. These ladies went all out in this one, you can never say that the ladies of the past generation can’t keep up with the modern era of women’s wrestling. In the end, it was Amber Keys who was able to come out victorious. And you know what that means? This is the last stop for the Queen of the Nile as her career is fini–Gavin, are you crying?!

Gavin Kirkland: No, I just got something in my eye….

CJ Hana: Let it out, it’s okay. This is a safe space
.
Gavin Kirkland: (He sniffles.) I’ve never known a love greater than the one I have for Cleopatra. And I still can’t believe that this is going to be the last time I see her in a ring–ever. I’m gonna miss my babe. More than anything. :mjcry:

CJ Hana: Awwwww, Gavin…but, um, at least you still have Andrea to root for! Right?!

Gavin Kirkland: Don’t dare insult Cleo, Andrea is great and all, but nobody can compare to Cleopatra. Damn you, Amber! DAMN YOU!

(Amber Keys finally stands up to her feet, still looking down at Cleopatra whose eyes are now wide open. Amber, wiping tears from her eyes and standing on spaghetti legs, falls backwards into the ring ropes, watching as Cleopatra pulls herself up to her feet. They stare across the ring at each other, both women filled with emotion as the crowd gives them a standing ovation for their exceptional performance here tonight. Amber’s music dies down completely, allowing the crowd’s appreciation to be fully heard.)

(Amber gets up from the corner and approaches Cleo on the opposite side of the ring. Cleo, still holding herself up from the ropes, prepares to defend herself as Amber gets closer. Amber shockingly pulls Cleopatra in for a warm embrace as the two women hug it out in the middle of the ring. The crowd begins a “THANK YOU CLEO” chant as Cleo and Amber whisper to each other, the microphone unable to pick up. They release their embrace and we’re able to see Cleopatra in tears then waves goodbye to the EAW Universe as Amber Keys raises Cleo’s hand. “Mona Lisa” starts playing again as the two rejoice with one another.)

CJ Hana: Well, what do you know? True sportsmanship from Amber Keys. They might not be the best of friends anymore, but I guess they’ll always share respect for anoth–WHAT THE HELL! WAIT A SECOND! AMBER KEYS JUST HIT CLEOPATRA WITH A STANDING VERSION OF MAJOR KEYS! THE STUNNER FROM AMBER ONTO CLEO, I–yeah, not surprised by this one either.

Gavin Kirkland: 😐 Yawn. What a douchebag. Leave it to Amber to ruin a perfectly good Kodak moment! This crowd can’t believe it–they’re letting all their hatred out in full force as Amber throws her head back, cackling! Evil WRETCH!

CJ Hana: Cleo’s career is officially over and Amber Keys just delivered the final blow! She smiles and laughs down at Cleopatra while this crowd is booing the life out of her, some even throwing things inside the ring. You can probably catch a glimpse of hell for yourself by judging the look on Amber’s face…she’s proud of what she’s done here tonight. Evil in its truest form. But what’re you gonna do? Amber’s career lives. She won. She has dethroned the Queen of the Nile and she’s looking for more things to prove in the very near future. I know it’s very, very bright.

Gavin Kirkland: Fuck that bitch. Forreal.

(Amber Keys slowly exits the ring, still staring at Cleopatra who rests in the center of the ring with her hands covering her eyes. “All It Takes For Dreams to Come True” by A Skylit Drive picks back up as Amber skips happily up the ramp. The camera fades to the backstage area.)

( Max A. Million stands backstage in the Pain for Pride interview area with a microphone in hand, and a pleasant smile on his face. )

Max A. Million: Ladies and Gentlemen please give a warm welcome to our musical guests of honor, Quavo, Offset and Takeoff, THE MIGOS!!!

( All three members of The Migos walk into the frame receiving an ovation from their hometown audience. )

Max A. Million: Gentlemen it’s well documented that the three of you are huge wrestling fans, you’ve mingled with several EAW Hall of Famers and of course your song ‘Position To Win’ is the theme song for tonight’s blockbuster event. How does it feel to have Pain for Pride take place in your home town?

Offset: You already know it’s like a dream come true. We used to watch these guys on TV, we used to play them in the video games you know what I mean. Now we get to meet some of the EAW legends and perform at the biggest wrestling event in history right here in Atlanta? Couldn’t have dreamed of it.

Quavo: Forreal like, I thought being a part of All Star Weekend was a big deal but this is a whole ‘nother level. A whole different atmosphere.

Max A. Million: This years Pain for Pride is being hailed as ‘The Mecca of Culture’, and you guys being a part of this is a big deal for everyone of course. How important do you gentlemen feel it is to have wrestling fuse with other elements of pop culture, including the biggest genre in music arguably being hip hop?

Quavo: Hip hop and wrestling go hand in hand for sure. Not even gonna lie to you though, for a little while EAW wasn’t really embracing the culture and it was starting to become kind of unwatchable you know what I’m saying? Honestly we used to just tune in for the DDD and Impact matches and skip all the Game of Thrones shit that was happenin’. Now that EAW’s culture, in my opinion at least, is on 100% the way it should be, we been able to get back to enjoying it like we did when EAW still had ‘Extreme’ in its name. And part of that of course is just EAW keeping up with the times and catering more to people who… you know…

Takeoff: People who go outside. People who get pussy.

Quavo: (laugh) Basically yeah.

Max A. Million: Well one final question before I let you gentlemen enjoy the show, I wanted to get some predictions from all three of you regarding some of the Marquee matches that are soon to come-

“AHEM, AHEM, AHEM”

( Lucas Johnson walks into the frame wearing his Beats by DRE headphones that was given to him by his manager Albert Hitchman. He is flanked by Albert Hitchman and Feral Khan. )

Albert Hitchman: You wanna talk predictions huh? Well Max with all due to respect to the “Amigos”, I have something better than a prediction for you, I have a SPOILER. My client Lucas Johnson will be leaving this beautiful state-of-the-art Mercedes Benz Stadium in the center of the hotbed of HIS HOMETOWN, ATLANTA… AS THE HOMETOWN HERO, AND THE 2019 MR. CASH IN THE VAULT!!!

( Lucas removes his headphones from his ears and snickers. )

Lucas Johnson: I’ve actually got a proposition for the three of y’all if you’re interested. Who am I kidding? Of course you are. After all you’re in the presence of The Wrestling Machine.

Quavo: …

Lucas Johnson: I’m thinking you put your talents to good use and do a live performance of my entrance to the ring before I enter Cash in the Vault.

Offset: …

Lucas Johnson: Consider it a form of repayment for bringing such a prestigious prize such as Cash in the Vault back home to our hometown, the beautiful city of HOT-Lanta. It’s gonna be YUGE. So what do ya say boys?

Takeoff: Who the fuck you calling ‘boy’?

( The three musicians approach Lucas Johnson the same way they did Joe Budden. Feral Khan steps in between Lucas and Migos, and a tense scene begins to unfold before Albert Hitchman jumps in the middle to defuse any trouble. )

Albert Hitchman: Back down Khan! Back down! (To Migos) Gentlemen *stammering* we don’t want any trouble! Lucas and I simply know an opportunity when we see it, and believe me you three still have some time to think about it. I think you fellow Atlantians would make excellent partners with The Wrestling Machine. And if you’ll allow me *hitchman digs into his suit jacket pocket* I’d like to give you my business card.

( Albert Hitchman hands Quavo his business card. )

Quavo: Yeah? Here’s what you can do with your stupid business card.

( Quavo rips it up in Hitchmans face. )

Quavo: And if you really want a spoiler? I’m your man, your client is going to get his ass beat in the CITV briefcase match. You can take that to the bank.

Lucas Johnson: (Stopping Hitchman from exploding in anger) It’s okay Hitch. Let’s leave ’em be. Not everyone can be talented at what they do and have astute business sense like I do. Besides, you guys are overrated, Bone Thugs are better anyway! I’ll see if they’re just available instead! See ya losers!

( Lucas walks off with Feral Khan and an irate Hitchman following him off the scene. Migos shake their heads and roll their eyes at the ridiculousness they just had to endure. )

(Camera transitions to find Gina Romano inside the ring.)

Eve: Ladies and gentlemen is has been an astounding night of action already here at Pain for Pride, but now the time has come for Showdown to present its main event! Eve and Deadprez here to bring you all the action!

Deadprez: Malcolm Jones and Chris Elite are two men who know each other better than anyone! Former tag team partners turned bitter rivals! There’s is no love lost going into this match! One time they battled for the World Heavyweight Championship. Now they go head to head once again for the right to be called the EAW Champion!

(The arena lights cut out and everything goes quiet as three words suddenly appear on the screen.)

GAWD

GIVEN

GREATNESS

(An explosion of light then comes from every light in the arena, flaring the cameras as “What’s Beef” by Biggie Smalls hits. Golden sparks begin to fall from the entryway as a brand new jet black Bugatti drives out through the sparks. Chris Elite is driving the car while wearing his pink mink, the car filled with gorgeous women from Brooklyn.)

Eve: If there’s anyone who comes in confident, it’s the former World Heavyweight Champion. He actually utilized his Gawd Contract powers to make this match what it is! And by the look on his face, I’d say he’s primed and ready for this match tonight!

(Chris steps out of the car and stands briefly, looking around at the sea of fans surrounding him. He removes his mink and tosses it to one of the girls in the car. Another girl climbs into the driver seat and begins to back the car back up the ramp as Chris turns and looks at the ring. Chris slides into the ring and stands up on the top of the turnbuckles, his arms out for the cheering masses, a massive grin across his face.)

Deadprez: But this time he doesn’t enter as the champion. This time he comes as the challenger. Many once said that Chris Elite would never reach this point especially at Pain for Pride. And now head here two years running. Tonight he’s here to show them all why.

(All of the lights, screens, and monitors suddenly shut off, leaving the audience completely shrouded in the pitch black darkness of the arena. We’re able to see a few cell phones and lighters being held up in the air in an attempt by fans to illuminate the ring. A few seconds pass as the crowd murmurs to themselves before the titantron turns on, bringing everyone’s attention to the images that begin flashing on the screen as a sample of “Planet Hell” by Nightwish begins to play, the drums, vocal ensemble, and instrumentals of the intro to the song familiar to any Malcolm Jones or Meek Mill fan: )

(As the black and white images from Black Panther rallies play, a voiceover from speeches by the late Fred Hampton, a Black activist and revolutionary well known for his contributions to the Illinois Chapter of the Black Panther Party, begins to play over the orchestral music.)

View post on imgur.com

*”…I’m not afraid to see I’m at war with the pigs…”*

*…”we’re not gonna fight racism with racism, we’re gonna fight with solidarity. We say we’re not gonna fight capitalism with black capitalism, but we’re gonna fight it with socialism…”*

View post on imgur.com

*”…they wanna get rid of me because I’m saying something that might wake up some of the exploited people, some other oppressed people…”*

*”…the Black Panther Party stood up and said that we don’t care what anybody says. We don’t think fighting fire with fire is best; we think you fight fire with WATER best…”*

View post on imgur.com

*”We always say in the Black Panther Party they can do anything they want to us. We might not be back. I might be in jail, I might be anywhere. But when I leave, you’ll remember I said, with the last words on my lips, that I…am…a REVOLUTIONARY!”*

(The final voice over and the orchestral music transition perfectly into the intro of Meek Mill’s “Pray For ‘Em”, the trap drums now accompanying the orchestral production. A single spotlight emerges and shines onto the stage.)

(Malcom Jones steps forward from behind the curtain, the spotlight allowing us a full look at his traditional Black Panther Party “urban militant” uniform: black leather jacket, black pants, powder-blue shirt, black beret, dark sunglasses, and to complete the look, the EAW Championship around his waist as the perfect accessory. MJ takes a moment to bask in the vast immensity of the arena, the stage, the aura. He fights a smile that forces itself across his face as he heads into his second Pain for Pride main event.)

Deadprez: And here comes the champion! Malcolm Jones tore his way through EAW this year on a mission to prove what he was capable of! A triple crown champion and the King of Elite all in the span of a year and now standing here in another Pain for Pride main event!

(The lights over the stage and ramp turn back on, and we are able to see several members of the Black Panther Party lined down the ramp. Some are older, and a few look a bit younger. But they are all dressed the same, uniformly, in ensembles all identical to Malcolm’s—minus the championship belt, of course.)

Eve: The Champion has had a remarkable year coming into tonight! And he’s not ready for it to end! I’d bet there’s no length he isn’t willing to go to in order to retain tonight and change the history books after last year’s main event!

(Malcolm steps out onto the edge of the stage and begins to make his way down the ramp. As he passes each member down the ramp, they raise their fist high in the air. It takes Malcolm to finally reach the ring for each member of the Party to get their fist up in the air. They keep their fists raised high as Malcolm hops up onto the apron nearest the ramp, facing his brothers, fist up, and holding his EAW Championship high in the air as the Black Panther Party logo flashes on the titantron.)

(“Pray For ‘Em” continues to play as he steps in between the ring ropes, hopping onto the nearest turnbuckle to showboat and look out into the sea of fans.)

(Jones steps down and the referee is waiting in the center with Gina Romano.)

Gina Romano: Ladies and Gentlemen, the following matchup is a PAIN FOR PRIDE MAIN EVENT!

Crowd: WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Gina Romano: It is a Three Stages of Hell match… FOR THE EAW CHAMPIONSHIP!!!!

(The crowd is going insane with anticipation for the match.)

Gina Romano: The first stage will consist of a standard singles match, the second stage will be a four corners chain match, and the third stage should it be needed is a street fight!

(Both men are getting loose, eyeing each other down, trying to get into each other’s heads.)

Gina Romano: Introducing first, the challenger! He is from Brooklyn, New York! Weighing in at 210 pounds… GAWD GIVEN GREATNESS!!! CHRISSSSSSS EEELLLIIIITTTTEEEE!!!!

(Chris pounds his chest and raises a fist in the air for the fans as they cheer.)

Gina Romano: And Introducing the Champion! He is from Harlem, New York! Weighing in at 220 pounds… HE IS THE REIGNING, DEFENDING EAW CHAMPION! MALLLLLCCCCOOOLMMMM JJOOONNEEEESSSS!!!!!

(Malcolm holds the championship up in the air, holding it high for all the fans to see. He turns and the referee is there and takes the championship. The ref holds it for Chris Elite to see, who nods his head. The referee then holds the belt high for the camera before handing it outside to the timekeeper.)

(DING! DING! DING!)

Eve: AND AT LONG LAST WE ARE UNDERWAY WITH THREE STAGES OF HELL BETWEEN CHRIS ELITE AND MALCOLM JONES FOR THE EAW CHAMPIONSHIP! The first stage is a normal match and both men now are just eyeing each other, soaking in the moment as this raucous crowd is exploding! The emotion in the stadium building with each passing second and we haven’t even seen either man make a move yet! Malcolm looks confident but Chris Elite is focused on him like a laser! Both men now taking a step forward as they look to get this thing started! AND CHRIS ELITE IS OFF LIKE A BULLET! He isn’t gonna let Malcolm get the upper hand early! Chris Elite rushes in just like last year— BUT MALCOLM JONES WITH A LIFTING KNEE!

Deadprez: BUT ELITE ROLLS UNDERNEATH! MJ TURNS AROUND! BOX OFFICE SMASH!

Eve: MISSES! MJ DROPPED TO THE MAT AND ROLLED OUT OF THE RING! The champion is playing the game of survival! He still looks confident but that smirk is gone from his face! Elite now waving for him to get back in the ring! Telling him to bring it on! Malcolm was ready for the rush job because that’s exactly how Elite came out of the gate last year and caught him with a flurry! But Elite must’ve known a guy like Jones would’ve seen it coming and he nearly took his head off! That superkick could’ve gotten the first fall very early and Malcolm would’ve been playing from behind! The champion now rolls into the ring and gets to his feet, keeping his eyes trained on Chris Elite! We know that both men have people backing them but by order of the Gawd Contract, Big Mike and the entirety of the Joneset are banned from interfering!

Deadprez: These two are gonna go for it, purely man to man. Both men move in now! And we have our first lock up of the evening! Malcolm twists out now into a standard wristlock… BUT ELITE IMMEDIATELY SOMERSAULTS BACKWARDS AND RELIEVES THE PRESSURE! HE THROWS HIS LEG BACK FOR A PELE KICK! BUT MALCOLM DODGES AND MAINTAINS ARM CONTROL! ELITE KIPS UP RIGHT BACK TO HIS FEET AND THROWS ANOTHER KICK! ROUNDHOUSE TOWARDS THE HEAD BUT MALCOLM DUCKS THAT AS WELL! ELITE IS NOW HUNG UP AS MALCOLM HAS ARM CONTROL BUT THAT ROUNDHOUSE PUT ELITE’S ARM AROUND HIS OWN NECK AFTER HE TURNED! MALCOLM TRIES TO APPLY A CHOKE! A MODIFIED COCAINA CLUTCH! THIS COULD DO IT!

Eve: BUT ELITE FEELS IT COMING AND ELBOWS INTO THE GUT OF THE CHAMPION! MALCOLM LETS GO OF THE ARM! ELITE TAKES OFF AND HITS THE ROPES! BUT MALCOLM SEES IT AND GOES FOR THE C-NOTE! THE SPEAR!

Deadprez: BUT ELITE COMBAT ROLLS OVER THE TOP OF MALCOLM! JONES MISSED THE SPEAR AND GETS HUNG UP IN THE ROPES! ELITES SEES IT AND HITS THE ROPES FROM THE OTHER SIDE! RUNS IN AND THROWS HIMSELF INTO THE ROPES FOR A TIGER FEINT KICK!

BUT ELITE YANKS HIMSELF TO THE SIDE WITH THE SECOND ROPE! MALCOLM CATCHES HIMSELF BEFORE COLLIDING WITH THE TURNBUCKLES! HE TURNS AROUND— GO TO THE DENTIST! JUMPING BICYCLE KNEE! BUT JONES SIDESTEPS IT! ELITE TURNS QUICK TO KEEP THE PACE!

He grabs Elite now by the head! Jones pulling his rival up by the skull— BUT ELITE NOW DRIVES HIS FEET AND RUNS MALCOLM BACK INTO THE CORNER! CHRIS ELITE NOW DRIVING HIS SHOULDER INTO THE STOMACH OF THE CHAMPION! ELITE HAS JONES PRESSED AGAINST THE TURNBUCKLES AND NOW CONTINUES TO DRIVE THAT SHOULDER OVER AND OVER! Taking away that core strength will make it very difficult for the champion in the later stages of the match! But Elite now steps back and— USES THE TOP ROPE TO DRIVE HIMSELF AS HE THROWS A LEAPING ROUNDHOUSE ACROSS THE JAW OF THE CHAMPION!

Eve: MASSIVE CONNECTION! The champion is stunned and now Elite looks to take advantage! Jones stumbles out of the corner trying to gather himself… BUT ELITE LEAPS UP AND SPRINGBOARDS BACKWARDS OFF THE TOP ROPE INTO A FALLING DDT! JONES IS PLANTED HEADFIRST AND ELITE IS STARTING TO FEEL IT IN THIS MATCHUP! Elite runs over and— STANDING SHOOTING STAR PRESS! What athleticism from the former World Heavyweight Champion! He shoots right back to his feet and leaps up into the ropes— BIONIC STOMP! The springboarded moonsault double foot stomp! BUT JONES ROLLED OUT OF THE WAY! BUT ELITE LANDS ON HIS FEET AND RECOVERS WITH A STANDING MOONSAULT ACROSS THE TORSO OF THE CHAMPION! Elite stands and pounds his chest! He obviously knows this isn’t enough for a pin but he’s pumping up this crowd!

Crowd: ELITE! ELITE! ELITE! ELITE! ELITE!

Jones clutches at his torso, getting a bit frustrated now as Elite has taken control of this contest! Jones rolls himself over to the ropes as he tries to gather himself! Jones pulls himself up to his feet and now Elite makes his way over to continue the offense— BUT JONES SHOVES HIMSELF OFF THE ROPES AND COMES IN WITH A LARIAT! BUT ELITE DUCKS THE LARIAT!

Twists the arm around and— RIPCORD KNEE STRIKE KNOCKS ELITE BACK! ELITE STUMBLES INTO THE ROPES AND FALL BACK THROUGH THE MIDDLE AND BOTTOM ROPE! HE TUMBLES OUT TO THE FLOOR!

Deadprez: Elite just crashes hard! AND MJ FOLLOWS WITH A SUICIDE PLANCHA! MJ CRASHES DOWN ON TOP OF ELITE’S PRONE BODY! He rolls over and grabs Elite now by the face!

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

Eve: DAMN! A SLAP STRAIGHT ACROSS THE FACE! INSULT TO INJURY FROM MALCOLM! MJ stands up now and raises his arms out for all the haters! Showering him in boos here in Atlanta!

Crowd: BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Deadprez: Jones don’t give a fuck. But the referee damn sure does. The ref is telling MJ to get Elite back inside the ring! Malcolm not just slid into the ring! You can take a win by countout and move on to the next stage I guess and—

Crowd: :damn:

Eve: Jones just slid into the ring only to give the finger to the referee! He rolls right back to the outside as Elite is just beginning to get to his feet! Malcolm takes a running start— HE HOPS UP AND LEAPS FROM THE STEEL STEPS TOWARDS ELITE! BUT ELITE WITH THE BACK ELBOW CATCHES JONES ON THE BRIDGE OF THE NOSE BEFORE THE DIVE CAN CONNECT! BUT JONES’S MOMENTUM STILL KNOCKS ELITE FORWARD AND BACK TO THE FLOOR! Both men are down! Elite is struggling to get back to his knees and Jones is checking his nose to see if he’s bleeding!

BUT THAT CRASH INTO THE CHAIR AND THE LEAPING DIVE HAD TO TAKE A LOT OUT OF THE CHAMPION AS HE COULDN’T PROTECT HIMSELF WITH THE DESPERATION OF JUMP! But now both men have made it back to the ring!

THE DOUBLE KNEES CONNECT THIS TIME! MJ’S HEAD JUST SNAPPED BACK WITH THE IMPACT! AND HE COULD BE OUT! ELITE GOES TO GRAB HIM BY THE LEG— BUT THAT SEEMS TO HAVE REMINDED JONES WHERE HE IS AND NOW HE KICKS ELITE AWAY! JONES GRABS THE ROPES AND YANKS HIMSELF UP— OH BUT HE STUMBLES AND CLUTCHES THE TOP ROPE WITH BOTH HANDS TO SUPPORT HIMSELF!

(DING! DING! DING!)

Eve: HE DID IT! IT TOOK TWO BACK TO BACK BOX OFFICE SMASHES BUT HE DID IT! ELITE PINS THE CHAMPION!

Gina Romano: Ladies and gentlemen, the winner of the first fall… CHRIS ELITE!!

Deadprez: That’s the first step! But we aren’t close to done yet! This is three stages of hell! And these two are laying it all out on the line for the namesake championship of this company! It’s all about the EAW Championship! And up next… a four corners chain match!

(Elite raises his arms in celebration but immediately slumps over into a corner to try and catch his breath as the referee is delivered a wooden box. The ref opens the box to reveal a ten foot long steel chain with hand cuffs on either end. He walks over to Elite and clasps a cuff around his right wrist. Elite twists his hand around, trying to get a feel for it as the referee kneels next to Malcolm Jones who is just waking up. Jones shakes his head clear as the referee clasps the cuff around his right wrist. The referee helps Malcolm up to a standing base as Elite pulls himself up as well. The referee calls them both to stand across from each other in the center of the ring before calling for the bell.)

(DING! DING! DING!)

Eve: And now we are onto our second stage! Both men bound together by ten feet worth of chain! This stage is under four corners rules so the first man to touch all four corners of the ring will take the win!

(A Grid with four blank dots appears either both men’s names on the bottom of the titantron screen.)

Deadprez: But after the battle of that first fall, how much can either man really have left? Elite got the fall but neither man can possibly be at one hundred percent right now, can they?

Eve: Well I suppose we’re about to find out. Jones looks pissed to be playing from behind! And he grabs the chain now and yanks back on it! Elite is tumbled forward— AND A MASSIVE LARIAT SENDS ELITE DROPPING TO THE GROUND! Now Jones grabbing and handful of chain and— AND WHIPPING IT ACROSS THE PRONE BODY OF CHRIS ELITE! JONES LASHING THE CHAIN INTO THE BODY OF THE CHALLENGER NOW! AND ELITE TRYING TO COVER UP BUT THERE’S ONLY SO MUCH YOU CAN DO AGAINST UNFORGIVING STEEL! Jones steps away now and moves to try and trigger the first corner!

Deadprez: But it won’t be that easy! In pain or not, Elite grabs ahold of the chain and pulls back, using his body weight and strength to hold Jones just short of the turnbuckle!! The Champion is beyond angry now at just the defiance of the challenger! Jones now moves over— SWINGS A BIG KICK AT THE HEAD OF ELITE! BUT ELITE DUCKS UNDERNEATH! Chris Elite now rolls through and to his feet! BIG ENZIGURI! ELITE HAS JONES STUNNED FOR A MOMENT! ELITE GRABS THE WRIST AND TWISTS INTO A WRISTLOCK! HE MAINTAINS THE LOCK AND LEAPS UP TO THE ROPES! ELITE CUTTER! NO! JONES SAW IT COMING THIS TIME AND USES HIS FREE ARM TO SHOVE ELITE OFF AND FREE HIS TRAPPED ARM! ELITE GOES FLYING— AND JONES YANKS ON THAT CHAIN WHILE ELITE IS IN MIDAIR! THAT ALMOST DISLOCATED CHRIS ELITE’S SHOULDER AND IT DROPPED HIM BACK ONTO HIS NECK! ELITE IS HURTING AND JONES SMELLS BLOOD! MALCOLM JONES COMES OVER AND TAKES THE CHAIN BY THE HAND! HE WRAPS THE CHAIN AROUND THE NECK OF THE FORMER WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION AND PLACES A BOOT ON THE BACK OF HIS SHOULDERS! JONES YANKING BACK AND DIGGING THAT CHAIN INTO ELITE’S THROAT! DRIVING ELITE FORWARD AND ENFORCING THE CHOKE WITH THAT BOOT AS WELL!

Eve: ELITE HAS TO FIND AND ESCAPE BEFORE THIS GOES TOO FAR! HE CANT SURVIVE THIS FOR MUCH LONGER! ELITE REACHING! LOOKING FOR THE ROPES BUT THE ROPES WONT DO HIM ANY GOOD HERE! THERES NO DQ IN THIS SCENARIO! ELITE IS STRUGGLING AND THIS IS AFTER HE BARELY SURVIVED THE COCAINA CLUTCH NOT TOO LONG AGO SO WHO KNOWS HOW MUCH BLOOD HE EVEN HAS IN HIS BRAIN?!? ELITE IS LOOKING FOR SOMETHING! HES CLUTCHING AT THE CHAIN AROUND HIS NECK! ELITE TRYING SO HARD NOW! HE DRAGS HIS KNEES IN TO HIMSELF! HES PRESSING HIMSELF BACK AGAINST THE BOOT OF JONES AND USING THAT FORCE TO PUSH HIMSELF UP TO HIS FEET!

Deadprez: BUT SOON AS HE DOES, JONES REWRAPS THE CHAIN AROUND HIS THROAT! JONES HAS THE CHOKE STILL ON BUT WITH ELITE NOW STANDING! ELITE USING WHAT LIFE HE HAS LEFT TO TRY AND SWING FOR THE FENCES! JONES WITHSTANDING THE SHOTS BUT ELITE IS LANDING HARD INTO THE RIBS OF THE CHAMPION! OH BUT JONES YANKING THE CHAIN TO PULL ELITE DOWN BY THE THROAT AND RIGHT INTO A STIFF KNEE STRIKE! ELITE IS DOWN TO HIS KNEES AND FADING! HE CANT HAVE MUCH LEFT!JONES JUST DRAGGING ELITE WITH THAT CHAIN! JONES DRAGGING THE DEAD WEIGHT OF THE CHALLENGER OVER! JONES HAS THE FIRST CORNER!

(The first green light triggers next to Malcolm’s name on the screen.)

Eve: Jones has gotten the first corner and takes the early lead! And now he’s looking to make it two as he’s going to try and drag Elite over to the next turnbuckle— BUT ELITE SLIDES OUT OF THE RING NOW WITH JONES JUST INCHES FROM THAT SECOND TURNBUCKLE! Elite now pulling himself with that chain still around his throat over and yanking for ever inch until he can get around the post of the first turnbuckle! Won’t get a point since he has to touch the turnbuckle pads but he forces Jones to come after him instead of building a lead! Jones slides out of the ring— AND ELITE USES THE MOMENTARY SLACK IN THE CHAIN TO FREE HIMSELF! ELITE GETS THE CHAIN FROM AROUND HIS NECK! DEAR GAWD LOOK AT HIS THROAT ITS COMPLETELY RAW AND IM PRETTY SURE I SEE SOME BLEEDING FLESH THERE! Elite coughing as he finally gets some wind back in his body— BUT HERE COMES MJ ON THE ASSAULT! MJ LOOKING TO BRING EKITE BACK TO THE RING WHERE THEY CAN TRIGGER THE CORNERS BUT ELITE TRYING TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THIS SHORT REPRIEVE!

Deadprez: Jones now grabbing Elite by the back of the head— BUT ELITE SLAPS HIS HAND AWAY AND DELIVERS A LEFT CROSS RIGHT TO THE JAW OF THE CHAMPION! MALCOLM FELT THAT PUNCH ESPECIALLY AFTER THE DOUBLE SUPERKICK HE TOOK ONLY MINUTES AGO! Malcolm is knocked back and leans into the barricade while he clutches his jaw— BUT NOW ELITE HAD THE CHAIN IN HAND AND WHIPS IT ACROSS THE BACK OF JONES! JONES NOW YELLING IN PAIN AS THAT CHAIN RIPS AT HIS FLESH! ELITE— Ooooh! Elite just stumbled! That knee that Malcolm was working over earlier is starting to act up! Some swelling must be taking place! Elite tries to grab at his knee but… but he pauses? He’s looking at the chain in his hand and over now at Malcolm… AND ELITE WHIPS THE CHAIN RIGHT INTO THE LEG OF MALCOLM JONES! JONES TRIES TO LIMP AWAY BUT CANT GET TOO FAR OBVIOUSLY AS THE TWO ARE BOUND AND ELITE— ELITE WHIPS THAT SAME LEG OF JONES AGAIN! TRYING TO MAKE THE CHAMPION FEEL ALL HIS SAME PAIN! JONES NOW DROPS TO THE FLOOR AS ELITE LOOKS TO SWING THE CHAIN DOWN AGAIN AND—

Eve: JONES ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY! Elite whips the floor with the chain now and Jones grabs ahold of it before Elite can swing again! With both men clutching the chain they’re separated by no more than two feet right now! Elite tries to tear it out of Jones’s grip— BUT IT JUST HELPS JONES GET BACK UP TO HIS FEET! MALCOLM PLANTS A SHOULDER INTO THE GUT OF ELITE AND DRIVES HIM BACK SPINE FIRST AGAINST THE BARRICADE! Ohh. I just got a look at Jones’s back and he’s now beginning to welt up pretty bad where that chain marked him! Jones now grabs ahold of the challenger— MASSIVE OVERHEAD BELLY TO BELLY! ELITE CRASHES ON HIS SHOULDER INTO THE RING APRON AND DROPS TO THE FLOOR ALMOST ONTO HIS HEAD! Jones now walks over, clutching momentarily at the source of pain in his back after that maneuver and he grabs Elite now and scoops him up! DRIVING HIM BACK FIRST AGAIN AGAINST THE APRON NOW! TAKES ELITE BY THE HEAD! ROLLS HIMS BACK INSIFE OF THE RING AND NOW MJ DASHES TO THE SIDE AND SLIPS IN! HES BACK IN THE RING BUT HE TRIGGERS THE NEXT TURNBUCKLE AS HE GETS IN! JONES TAKES A 2 TO 0 LEAD!

(The second green light activates on the screen next to Malcolm’s name. No lights are triggered yet for Elite.)

Deadprez: Chris Elite is gonna have to find a way to get back into this! Jones has taken a big lead here! Elite trying to get back to his feet now, BUT JONES ALREADY ON THE ATTACK AGAIN! HE WONT LET ELITE GET ANY GROUND! JONES IS ALREADY A FALL BEHIND AND CANT TAKE THE RISK OF LOSING THIS ONE! JONES NOW DRAGGING ELITE UP AND PLACING HIS HEAD IN POSITION! GONNA GO FOR THE L-TRAIN! BUT ELITE LIFTS UP AND FLIPS JONES OVER WITH A BACK BODY DROP! JONES HOLDS ONTO HIM THOUGH AND PULLS HIM BACK FOR ALMOST A SUNSET FLIP POWERBOMB! BUT ELITE ROLLS THROUGH IT AND CONNECTS WITH A PENALTY KICK TO THE FACE OF THE CHAMPION! ELITE GONNA TAKE THIS CHANCE! HE DASHES FOR THE ROPES AND SPRINGBOARDS UP! LOOKING FOR THE BIONIC STOMP!

Eve: BUT HE FORGOT ABOUT THE CHAIN FOR JUST THAT MOMENT AND HE WAS TOO FAR AWAY! ELITE FALLS BACK CRASHING TO THE MAT! This is exactly what Jones said when he challenged for this stipulation to be added! He wanted to keep things close and use the close quarters of the chain to keep Elite grounded!

Deadprez: That’s the intellect of the champion! And Elite saw a chance and for just the smallest moment forgot he was bound to MJ by that chain! AND JONES NOW GOING TO TAKE ADVANTAGE! HE ROLLS OVER ON TOP OF ELITE AND TAKES THAT CHAIN! JONES DROPPING POWERFUL ELBOWS INTO THE HEAD OF ELITE AND NOW WRAPPING THE CHAIN AROUND HIS TORSO! JONES PULLING ELITE UP NOW AND… JONES GOES BACK TO BACK WITH ELITE! USING THE CHAIN TO PULL ELITE UP ONTO HIS BACK! HE HAS ELITE TIED TO HIM LIKE A BACK PACK! ELITE THROWING BACK ELBOWS BUT ITS NO USE! HE HAS CHRIS STRAPPED TO HIM AND IS CARRYING HIM OVER! JONES GOING TO TAKE THE FALL AND HIT THE REMAINING CORNERS WHILE CARRYING ELITE LIKE DEAD WEIGHT! JONES MAKING HIS WAY OVER! HE REACHES OUT! THE THIRD TURNBUCKLE IS WITHIN HIS REACH!

Eve: HOLY FUCK! WHAT WAS THAT! ELITE JUST DROVE HIS HEEL EITH KICKS OVER AND OVER INTO THE BACK OF MALCOLMS THIGH! ELITE THEN THREW HIMSELF BACK AND MANAGED TO GET JONES OFF BALANCE! ELITE THEN FLIPPED OVER AND JONES LANDED ALMOST LIKE A GERMAN SUPLEX! What would you even call that? It’s the opposite of a belly to belly… maybe a chain assisted back to back suplex? Whatever you call it, Elite nearly had to DDT himself to pull it off and he’s lucky he didn’t smash his head into the mat!

Deadprez: Even if he’d done so, it was exactly what Elite needed in that moment! Jones was a fingertip away from that third turnbuckle! BUT LOOK! THE SLAM LANDED JONES NOT FAR FROM ONE OF THE PREVIOUS TURNBUCKLES AND NOW ELITE SEES A CHANCE! HE TURNS THROUGH AND UNWRAPS HIMSELF FROM THE CHAIN AND TAKES A RUN! JONES SEES IT AND TRIES TO GET TO A BASE SO HE CAN PULL THE CHAIN AND STOP HIM! ELITE DIVES FOR IT!

Eve: HE GOT IT!

(The first green light activates next to Chris Elite’s name. Jones still has two green lights.)

Deadprez: CHRIS ELITE MANAGES TO CATCH THE TURNBUCKLE WITH HIS FINGERTIPS AND MAKES THIS MATCHUP 2 TO 1! ELITE NOW ALREADY LOOKING TO MAKE IT TO THE SECOND TURNBUCKLE FOR HIMSELF BUT JONES IS BACK UP NOW AND NOT ABOUT TO LET IT HAPPEN! ELITE IS REACHING AND HES MAYBE A FOOT SHORT OF THAT NEXT TURNBUCKLE BUT JONES IS HAULING BACKWARDS ON THAT CHAIN AND NOT LETTING HIM GO ANYWHERE! ELITE IS STILL REACHING BUT JONES MAKES ONE LAST DESPERATE HEAVE ON THE CHAIN AND FINALLY GETS ELITE TO STUMBLE BACK IN HIS DIRECTION! JONES LUNGES IN WITH A MASSIVE FOREARM! BUT ELITE DUCKS UNDERNEATH IT! ELITE NOW RESPONDS WITH A BACKFIST BUT JONES BLOCKS IT! JONES TWISTS THROUGH AND APPLIES A WRISTLOCK! BUT NOW LOOKING TO REVERSE SOMERSAULT THROUGH IT JUST LIKE BEFORE—

Eve: BUT JONES SAW IT COMING! YOU CAN ONLY GO TO THE SAME WELL SO MANY TIMES! JONES STOMPS INTO ELITE MID ROLL AND STOPS THE MOMENTUM! HE DROPS TO A KNEE AND CRANKS ELITE’S ARM BACK! He has Chris’s uncuffed arm trapped and wrenching back now on the elbow joint! Between the neck, the knee, and now the elbow, Jones is systematically trying to disassemble the challenger! And now Elite— ELITE SPINS HIS LOWER BODY THROUGH AND UNDERNEATH HIM! HE RELIEVES THE PRESSURE AND SHOOTS UP WITH A HEADBUTT TO THE FACE OF THE CHAMPION!

Deadprez: JONES FALLS BACK TO THE MAT! AND IT LOOKS LIKE HES BLEEDING FROM THE NOSE NOW! ELITE POPS RIGHT TO HIS FEET AND LEAPS UP! DOUBLE FOOT STOMP TO JONES’S RIBCAGE! JONES HAS TAKEN A LOT OF PUNISHMENT THERE! BUT ELITE LAUNCHES FORWARD AND HE GOES FOR HIS SECOND TURNBUCKLE! AND HE GETS IT!

(The second green light activates next to Chris Elite’s name. Malcolm Jones still has two.)

Eve: We are all tied up at two corners a piece! First man to complete all four will take the fall! Jones is back to his feet but clutching at those ribs! Elite is looking to make a break for the next turnbuckle but Jones standing right in his way! Jones wipes some blood from his nose and Elite looks like he’s weighing his options and— JONES RUSHES IN WITH A SHOTGUN DROPKICK! HE SENDS ELITE BACK INTO THE CORNER THAT HE JUST TOUCHED AND BEGINS TO LAY INTO HIM! JONES FIRING OFF NOW ON ELITE AND TRYING TO MAKE EVERY SHOT COUNT! BOTH MEN HAVE ACTIVATED THE SAME CORNERS AND NOW ARE GOING TO TRY TO KEEP EACH OTHER AWAY FROM THE REMAINING CORNERS! JONES STILL HAMMERING AWAY AT ELITE! AND NOW THROWING KNIFE EDGE CHOPS WITH HIS CUFFED WRIST! That steel handcuff connecting with Elite’s chest and slicing him open with each chop! Blood now dripping down the sternum of the challenger and— JONES WITH A BIG BACK FIST TO THE HEAD! THAT HANDCUFF JUST CONNECTED WITH CHRIS ELITE’S TEMPLE! ELITE IS HURT AND JONES DRAGGING HIM OUT OF THE CORNER! ELITE IS BLEEDING FROM RIGHT IN FRONT OF THE EAR! JONES NOW DRAGGING HIM TO THE MIDDLE OF THE RING! HES LOOKING TO END THIS! JONES HAS HIM IN POSITION! LIFTS HIM UP! BUCK 50! THE TORNADO FACEBUSTER LANDS ELITE FACE FIRST RIGHT INTO THE SLACK OF THE STEEL CHAIN!

Deadprez: Jones now crawling for his third turnbuckle! Elite is down and out but Jones still has to hit the pads! Jones digging in deep! He’s inches away! But not enough slack on the chain! He has to pull and drag Chris Elite by the chain! Reaching out again! HE GOT IT!

(The third green light activates next to Malcolm Jones’s name. Chris Elite still has two.)

Deadprez: Jones now takes the lead as he now looks for his final turnbuckle! But he doesn’t go straight for it! Elite is waking up and Jones going to move close to the two corners that Elite has already triggered! Smart strategy here! Jones already has a one corner lead and by going to corners that have no value left to either man, he can keep the mad dash controlled because of the limits of the chain! No need to take any unnecessary risks! Elite gets back to his knees and looks up at the screen! He sees that Jones has gotten the next corner and now he looks around trying to figure out his next target— BUT JONES NOW BACK ON HIM! JONES GRABS THE CHALLENGER AND PLANTS HIM WITH A GUTWRENCH SUPLEX! JONES WRAPS HIS ARMS AROUND HIM AGAIN AND DRAGS HIM UP! JONES NOW FLINGS ELITE BACK WITH A BIG RELEASE GERMAN SUPLEX! Elite lands hard and clutches at the back of his neck again! Jones looking to follow up though! HE HAS THE CHAIN COLLECTED IN HIS HAND AND SWINGS IT DOWN! LOOKING TO WHIP IT INTO THE BODY OF CHRIS ELITE LIKE EARLIER!

Eve: BUT CHRIS ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY! HE SHOVES HIMSELF UP TO HIS KNEES AND DRIVES AN ELBOW INTO THE ALREADY HURT RIBS OF THE CHAMPION! ELITE NOW LOOKING TO MAKE THIS CHANCE COUNT! CHRIS GETS UP AND SCOOPS JONES ONTO HIS SHOULDERS! POPS HIM OFF AND GOES FOR THE ROUNDHOUSE! FACE VALUE!

Deadprez: BUT JONES DUCKED UNDERNEATH THE ROUNDHOUSE! NOW CONNECTING WITH A FOREARM TO THE BACK OF ELITE’S HEAD! ELITE STUMBLES INTO THE ROPES BUT IMMEDIATELY REBOUNDS WITH A BACK ELBOW TO THE JAW! ELITE TURNS AROUND AND TACKLES MJ TO THE GROUND! BOTH MEN BRAWLING ON THE CANVAS! JONES THROWING ELBOWS AND ELITE DROPPING HAMMERFISTS! AND ELITE CATCHING JONES ON THE ALREADY BUSTED NOSE WITH ONE OF THOSE HAMMERFISTS! ELITE SEES HIS OPENING! HE TAKES A CHANCE AND MAKES A BREAK FOR IT! ELITE DIVING FOR THE THIRD CORNER! BUT JONES QUICKLY RECOVERS AND YANKS BACK ON THE CHAIN! PULLING WITH EVERYTHING HE HAS LEFT TO NOT LET ELITE GET TO THAT CORNER! JONES CANT AFFORD TO LOSE THIS FALL! ELITE TRYING TO PULL AND MAKE PROGRESS TO THE CORNER BUT STRUGGLING NOW AGAINST THE LARGER MAN! JONES NOW PULLING BACK ON THE CHAIN! REELING IT IN AS HE PULLS! TRYING TO DRAW ELITE CLOSER TO HIM AND GET HIM AWAY FROM THE CORNER!

Eve: BUT ELITE STEPS FORWARD TO CREATE SLACK AND WHIPS THE CHAIN AND MANAGES TO SNAP IT OUT OF MALCOLM’S HANDS! MALCOLM SCRAMBLES TO GRAB AHOLD OF IT AND REGAIN CONTROL BUT ELITE YANKS BACK WITH HIS CUFFED ARM! MJ WASNT FOCUSED ON HIS BASE AND NOW IT PULLED FORWARD— RIGHT INTO A BOX OFFICE SMASH! THE SUPERKICK CONNECTS AGAIN TO THE CHAMPION! JONES IS DOWN! ELITE GRABS HIM BY THE FOOT AND DRAGS HIM! ELITE REACHING FOR THE THIRD CORNER— AND HE HAS IT!

(The third green light triggers next to Elite’s name. Malcolm also still has three.)

Eve: WE ARE ALL TIED UP ONCE AGAIN! THE FIRST MAN TO CONNECT WITH THAT LAST CORNER WILL GET THE FALL! JONES IS SHAKING HIS HEAD AND CLUTCHING AT HIS JAWBONE AS HE TRIES TO GATHER HIMSELF AFTER THE SUPERKICK! HE AND ELITE CATCH EACH OTHERS EYES! ELITE TAKES OFF! DARTING FOR THE LAST CORNER! JONES UP TO HIS FEET AND GIVES CHASE! ELITE NEARLY THERE! REACHING WITH HIS ARMS! BUT JONES GETS HIM FROM BEHIND! ELITE JUST FINGERTIPS AWAY FROM THE CHAMPIONSHIP! BUT AN EXPLODER SUPLEX FROM THE CHAMPION SENDS HIM BACK FLYING! JONES NOW TRYING TO GO FOR THE CORNER! BUT ELITE RECOVERS QUICK FROM THE EXPLODER SUPLEX AND HAULS BACKWARDS WITH THE CHAIN! NOT GOING TO LET HIM GO THAT EASY! JONES REACHING! NOW TRYING TO REACH WITH HIS LEG! BUT JUST SHORT! LESS THAN AN INCH AWAY!

Deadprez: JONES WAS THAT CLOSE! BUT HE HAS TO TURN HIS ATTENTION BACK NOW TO CHRIS ELITE ONE MORE TIME TO GET THE LAST CORNER TO STAY ALIVE IN THIS MATCHUP! ELITE STILL REARING BACK ON THE CHAIN! BUT JONES RUSHES IN ANYWAY! JONES CONNECTS WITH A MASSIVE RIGHT HAND AND ELITE RETURNS WITH A BPDY KICK! JONES WITH A KNEE TO STOMACH AND ELITE WITH A EUROPEAN UPPER CUT! JONES RESPONDS WITH A HEADBUTT! SPLATTERING THE BLOOD FROM HIS NOSE INTO THE FACE OF ELITE! ELITE IS STUMBLED! JONES NOW WITH A KNIFE EDGE CHOP TO THE LACERATED CHEST OF ELITE!

Eve: BUT ELITE DUCKS THE CHOP AND RETURNS WITH ANOTHER KICK TO THE RIBS! JONES IS HURT! ELITE GRABS JONES BY THE HEAD! LOOKING TO END THINGS! ELITE THROWS JONES OVER THE TOP ROPE AND TO THE APRON NEAR THE FINAL CORNER! ELITE WITH A LEAP TO THE TURNBUCKLES! FOR THE EAW CHAMPIONSHIP!

Deadprez: BUT HE CANT MAKE IT! LOOK AT JONES! HIS FEET ARE ON THE APRON BUT HES PARALLEL TO THE FLOOR! REARING BACK WITH HIS STRENGTH AND BODYWEIGHT TO KEEP ELITE FROM MAKING IT TO THE CORNER! ELITE NOW TRYING TO REEL JONES IN AND MAKE THE DISTANCE BUT JONES REFUSES TO BUDGE! JONES NOW DROPPING TO THE FLOOR AND DRAWING ELITE FARTHER AWAY! ELITE NOW RIGHT AT THE ROPES TRYING TO PULL JONES BACK TO THE RING— BUT JONES LEAPS UP AND GRABS ELITE BY THE HEAD! HANGS ELITE UP ON THE TOP ROPE AS HE DROPS BACK DOWN! ELITE FLOPS BACK TO THE MAT AND JONES SEES HIS OPENING! JONES SPRINGBOARDS UP AND LEAPS RIGHT FOR ELITE! FIVE STAR SWAG SPLASH!

Eve: BUT ELITE GOT THE KNEES UP! JONES CRASHES ON THOSE DAMAGED RIBS RIGHT INTO THE KNEES OF CHRIS ELITE! CHRIS NOW ROLLING THROUGH AND TRYING TO TAKE HIS CHANCE! BUT A DESPERATE JONES GRABS HIM BY THE ANKLE! ELITE KICKS AND KICKS TO RELEASE HIS LEG BUT JONES NOW HAS THE CHAIN AND KEEPS ELITE FROM MAKING IT! BOTH MEN PULLING TO GAIN THEIR GROUND! ELITE YANKS AND JONES USES THE FORCE TO GET TO HIS FEET! JONES HEAVES BACK ONCE MORE ON THE CHAIN AND ELITE FALTERS!! JONES RUSHES IN!

Deadprez: C-NOTE! THE C-NOTE! JONES JUST SPEARED ELITE RIGHT INTO THE LAST CORNER! BUT HE COSTS HIMSELF THE TITLE OUT OF DESPERATION! ELITE’S BACK COLLIDES WITH THE TURNBUCKLES! WE HAVE A NEW EAW CHAMPION!

Eve: I SAW THE SAME THING! CHRIS ELITE TAKES THE TITLE! Wait… the referee is calling for a replay…

(The screen pops up to show a slow motion replay of Jones spearing Elite. Elite is knocked back but Jones keeps his hands extended instead of wrapping them on the spear. Jones’s fingers clip the turnbuckle pad just before Chris Elite’s back connects with the pad.)

(DING! DING! DING!)

Gina Romano: Ladies and gentlemen, after a replay review, the winner of the second fall is… MALCOLM JONES!!!

(Both men are laid out on the ground. The referee raises Malcolm’s hand briefly to release the cuff. He then walks over and does the same to Chris Elite, tossing the cuffs and chain to the outside where the timekeeper gathers them.)

Deadprez: HOW DID JONES PULL THAT OFF?!?

Eve: I have no idea! He took a massive risk and it paid off! But that’s why he’s the reigning champion! And now it all comes down to this! Both men are exhausted! It’s a war of attrition! And now anything goes! Falls count anywhere! Ladies and gentlemen, we have Malcolm Jones and Chris Elite for the EAW Championship… IN A STREET FIGHT!

(DING! DING! DING!)

Deadprez: Jones is going to be the first man to try and get to his feet! He’s pushing himself up to his knees, that blood still dripping from his nose! Elite is still down but is looking for something to grab on to do he can pull himself up to his feet one more time! Jones now to his feet as Chris Elite is still trying to pull himself to the ropes! Blood all down the side of Chris Elite’s face! Chris is almost to the ropes but Malcolm not wasting anytime! Jones grabs Elite by the foot and drags him away! Jones drops on top and now pounding away at that cut under the ear! Both men becoming bloody messes! That’s what the EAW Championship means to them both! Jones hammering away at him and—

Eve: ELITE TWISTS UNDERNEATH MANAGES TO SLIP TO THE OUTSIDE! Elite has a moment to create some distance and recover! But Jones isn’t going to give him long! Jones takes off! Hits the ropes on the other side! Comes around! SUICIDE DIVE!

Deadprez: INTO A BOX OFFICE SMASH! ELITE CAUGHT HIM WITH THE SUPERKICK OUT OF MIDAIR! WHAT A MOVE! JONES DROPS TO THE GROUND AND ELITE SCRAMBLES NOW TO MAKE THE PINFALL! THE REFEREE SLIDES OUT OF THE RING AND MAKES THE COUNT!

He thought he caught him just right but this match goes on! Elite going to push himself up to his feet now! AND ANOTHER DOUBLE STOMP INTO MJ’S DAMAGED STERNUM! JONES GASPING FOR AIR AS ELITE LEAPS UP TO THE APRON! RIGHT INTO A MOONSAULT FROM THE APRON! WHAT A FEAT BY CHRIS ELITE! ELITE HOOKS THE LEG FOR ONE MORE PIN ATTEMPT! BUT MALCOLM KICKS OUT IMMEDIATELY! ITS GOING TO TAKE A LOT MORE THAN THAT!

Deadprez: Not even close. Elite may be frustrated but he has to remember that every time he forces the champion to kick out of the hooked leg, it makes him use his core muscles which means he’s sending pressure into that sternum. Every kick out like that hurts like hell! Jones is on the ground coughing now from the damage and Elite is looking for how he can finish this off. Jones trying to get to his feet. But Elite looking under the ring. Jones stumbles over and grabs Elite by the foot, dragging him from under the ring! Jones stomps into the back of Elite and now tries to pull him up— BUT ELITE JUST BLASTED THE CHAMPION WITH BRASS KNUCKLES! THAT LOADED FIST ACROSS THE JAW! JONES IS KNOCKED BACK AND COLLIDES WITH THE RING APRON! ALL HIS BODY WEIGHT AGAINST THE RING TO HOLD HIMSELF UP RIGHT NOW! BUT ELITE BLASTS THE KNUCKLES RIGHT INTO THE RIBCAGE! JONES IS GASPING FOR AIR AS HE COLLAPSES TO HIS KNEES! JONES TRYING TO CRAWL ALONG THE SIDE OF THE RING FOR SOME SEPARATION BUT ELITE STAYS ON HIM! ELITE RUSHES IN AND LOOKS TO DRIVE THOSE BRASS KNUCKLES IN AGAIN—

Eve: BUT JONES NOW HAS A LEAD PIPE! HE HAD HAND UNDER THE RING SKIRT AND PULLS IT OUT! HE JABS THE PIPE INTO ELITE’S THROAT BEFORE THE PUNCH CAN CONNECT! ELITE DROPS DOWN TO THE GROUND CLUTCHING AT HIS NECK! HE DROPS THE BRASS KNUCKLES AND NOW JONES IS UP TO HIS KNEES BUT CLUTCHING HIS RIBS! JONES RAISES HIS ARM AND SWINGS THE PIPE DOWN INTO THE BODY OF CHRIS ELITE! SMACKING THE SHIT OUT OF CHRIS ELITE WITH IT! AND NOW HE TARGETS THE ALREADY ACHING KNEE! JONES SMASHING INTO ELITE’S KNEE WITH THE PIPE! BUT EVERY SHOT LOOKS LIKE ITS TAKING SOMETHING OUT OF JONES! THOSE RIBS ARE BEAT TO DEATH!

Deadprez: Jones now uses the pipe almost like a cane and pushes himself up to his feet. Jones now climbing his way up to the apron! Elite is still down! Jones jumps! THE RE-UP CONNECTS! DIVING LEG DROP ACROSS THE THROAT OF ELITE! JONES MAKES A COVER! HOOKS THE DAMAGED LEG BY THE KNEE!

Ref: ONEEEEEEEEEE!

THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE-

Eve: NO! ELITE KICKED OUT! HE POWERED OUT BUT LOOK AT HIM CLUTCHING HIS KNEE! JONES NOW SLIDES OVER AND TRIED TO APPLY A KNEEBAR! TRYING TO CONTINUE THE DAMAGE TO THAT KNEE! BUT ELITE NOW POUNDING INTO HIS HEAD! EVERYTHING HE CAN TO KEEP FROM TAKING MORE PAIN! JONES FINALLY RELEASES AND ROLLS OVER TO GET TO HIS FEET! ELITE GRABS THOSE BRASS KNUCKLES AGAIN AS HE PRESSES HIMSELF AGAINST THE RING POST TO GET TO HIS FEET! JONES MAKES HIS WAY OVER AND ELITE SWINGS THE KNUCKS! BUT JONES DUCKS IT THIS TIME AND GRABS ELITE! THROWING HIM BACK INTO THE RING POST!

Deadprez: Elite drops the knucks and panda back to his feet but that knee gives out! Chris Elite down to his knees as Jones is continuing the offense— BUT ELITE WITH A HIGH PUNCH TO THOSE RIBS! MALCOLM IS DOUBLED OVER AND ELITE PUSHES HIS WAY UP TO HIS FEET! ELITE GRABBING JONES BY THE HEAD AND DRAGGING HIM TO THE BARRICADE! LIMPING AS HE GOES, ELITE THROWS JONES INTO THE BARRICADE! AND NOW ELITE COMES IN WITH A MASSIVE CLOTHESLINE THAT SENDS JONES OVER THE BARRICADE AND INTO THE FANS! Jones now trying to gather himself as he scrambles but Elite is already rolling himself over the barricade! Elite trying to make his way over to Jones and keep the momentum of this match!

Eve: AND ELITE JUST SHOVED A FAN OUT THE WAY AND GRABBED THEIR CHAIR! ELITE FOLDS IT UP AND TAKES IT IN HIS HANDS! HE RAISES IT UP AND SWINGS! BUT MALCOLM JUST THREW A FAN’S DRINK IN HIS FACE! ELITE BLINDED FOR A MOMENT AND JONES GRABS THE CHAIR, KICKING ELITE JUST UNDER THE JAW WITH A ROUNDHOUSE!

Deadprez: It wasn’t Henny but it got the job done.

Eve: JONES HAS THE CHAIR AND CRACKS IT ACROSS THE BACK OF CHRIS ELITE! AND AGAIN! AND AGAIN! ELITE NOW TRYING TO DEFEND HIMSELF AS HE THROWS HIS HANDS UP! BUT JONES DRIVES THE CHAIR INTO HIS GUT! JONES TOSSES THE CHAIR TO THE FLOOR AND GRABS ELITE AND PUTS HIM IN POSITION! JONES SMIRKING AS HE LOOKS AROUND! L-TRAIN! L-TRAIN! THE CANADIAN DESTROYER RIGHT ONTO THE STEEL CHAIR CONNECTS! ELITE’S HEAD IS BUSTED WIDE OPEN AS JONES NOW MAKES THE COVER!

Deadprez: Jones now looking very angry! He grabs Elite by the head and slowly drags him to his knees!

Eve: HE’S DONE IT!

Deadprez: NO! THE REF IS SAYING JONES KICKED OUT JUST IN TIME! ELITE LOOKS LIKE HE MAY CRY! HOW MUCH CAN EITHER MAN HAVE LEFT? Elite standing now to his feet as he looks around. He walks up and he seems to be looking up at the platform for our hard camera! What is this man thinking? How far will he go? Elite now STOMPING INTO THE CHAMPION! ELITE GRABS JONES AND PULLS HIM UP! JONES IS STILL DAZED FROM THE FACE VALUE AS ELITE DRAGS HIM OVER! BOTH MEN DRENCHED IN BLOOD! ELITE NOW THROWING JONES INTO A PILE OF CRATES BEFORE LOOKING UP AGAIN AT THE PLATFORM! AND NOW ELITE GRABS JONES! AND PLANTS HIM WITH A DDT RIGHT INTO THE CONCRETE! JONES IS A MANGLED MESS AT THE MOMENT! BUT LOOK AT CHRIS ELITE!

Eve: What is this madman thinking? Elite is climbing up the side of the camera platform! That dead leg dangling as he pulls himself up! Elite looking back! Jones is out on the ground! Elite going step by step up the side beams of that structure! He’s going to put his life on the line here for the championship!

Deadprez: BUT JONES IS WAKING UP! HES SHAKING HIS HEAD CLEAR! ELITE IS ABOUT FIFTEEN FEET UP THAT TWENTY FIVE FOOT STRUCTURE! BUT JONES LOOKS UP AND SEES ELITE CLIMBING! JONES PUSHING HIS WAY UP TO HIS KNEES AND CRAWLS OVER TO THE STRUCTURE! JONES PULLING HIMSELF UP BY THE SUPPORTS AND NOW HES TRYING TO CLIMB AS WELL! JONES MAKING HIS WAY UP AND QUICKLY AS HE HAS THE USE OF BOTH LEGS! JONES ABOUT HALFWAY UP AS ELITE NOW REACHES THE TOP! JONES PUSHING HIMSELF TO CLIMB FASTER AS HE SEES ELITE PULL HIMSELF UP ONTO THE PLATFORM!

Eve: Elite now looking back and I think he only just realized that Jones is up and climbing! Elite clearly had something planned off that structure but now he sees as Jones is making his way up! Jones now nearing the top as Elite tries to kick at him but Elite nearly loses his balance on that bad knee! Jones manages to shove him back and now both men are on top of the platform twenty-five feet high! AND BOTH MEN GO RIGHT AT EACH OTHER TRADING BLOWS! BOTH MEN LAYING IT ALL ON THE LINE! SWINGING FOR THE FENCES! AND JONES MANAGES TO STUN ELITE WITH A LEFT HAND! ELITE STEPS BACK AND TRIED TO RETURN FIRE BUT JONES JUST HOOKED HIM AND GRABS HIM UP! GUT WRENCH POWER BOMB!

Gina Romano: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN! THE WINNER OF THE THIRD FALL… ANNND STILLLLLLL YOUR EAW CHAMPION…. MALLLCCCOOLLLMM JJJOOOONNNNEEEEESSSSS!!!!!

Deadprez: MALCOLM JONES HAS WAITED A FULL YEAR TO ERASE WHAT HAPPENED AT PAIN FOR PRIDE LAST YEAR! FROM THE MAN WHO LOST THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH, TO A TAG TEAM CHAMPION, TO THE INTERWIRE CHAMPION, TO THE KING OF ELITE, TO THE EAW CHAMPIONSHIP, TO RETAINING HIS CHAMPIONSHIP AGAINST THE MAN WHO BEAT HIM LAST YEAR IN THIS SAME SLOT! WHAT A YEAR THIS MAN HAS HAD!

(Malcolm is helped to his feet, clutching his ribs in immense pain. “Pray for Em” Plays again over the speaker system. The time keeper rushes over and hands him the championship. Jones clutches the title to himself.)

Eve: This is why Showdown is the brand to watch! These two laid their lives on the line for the sake of the top prize in this industry! And now Malcolm Jones stands tall as the undeniable top champion! What a match! What a day! I cannot believe this is only the first day of Pain for Pride! These two absolutely killed each other! This really is the grandest stage in all of wrestling and of all sports!

(Malcolm limps his way over and climbs up onto the pile of rubble that once was the tower. He stands to his feet before taking the championship and holding it up high for all to see. Medical is seen coming out to tend to Chris Elite.)

Deadprez: Malcolm Jones! The man who some said would never escape developmental! The man who left this company when no one would give him a chance! The man who made his name in REVOLT! Pro Combat before merging back into EAW! The Prodigal Son returned home! And here at Pain for Pride, no one can deny anymore, he is a true champion!

Eve: I’m almost sad it has to end, but that is everything we have here tonight! Day one is in the books ladies and gentlemen! Join us here again tomorrow night for Pain for Pride XII Day Two!!!

(The Camera closes in on Malcolm staring about at the fans, Championship now over his shoulder, as lights flash all around him.)

( EAW logo buzzes )

DAY TWO

(EAW Intro Plays.)

(Camera opens to a black screen that transitions to view carved halls of stone, many statues and paintings line the hallways running as far as the eye can see. Many visitors walk the areas, admiring the works of art.)

Narrator: History is told by the victors…

(The Camera turns to see a cluster of admirers viewing an oil painting of Cameron Ella Ava as she clutches Xavier Williams in the legendary Ava Lock.)

Narrator: It holds legends and tales of mighty warriors who battle against all odds to find their glory…

(A marble sculpture depicts Minerva and Constance Blevins standing together with both the Empire Tag Team Championships and the EAW Unified Tag Team Championships.)

Narrator: Epic wars waged by the mighty, by those with strength of heart…

(A statue of granite shows us a beaten and battered Andrea Valentine surrounded by barbed wire as she hugs tight to her recently retained Specialists Championship.)

Narrator: Wars waged for the sake of nations…

(Spectators are gathered around a reimagining of Emanuel Leutze’s famous painting of George Washington crossing the Delaware, but with Jack Ripley standing as the focal point with the National Elite Championship on his shoulder.)

Narrator: And battles fought for the sake of life itself…

(Others look on in deep thought at an aged painting of Amber Keys and Cleopatra, standing back to back. Amber holds her arms high as light shines on her. Cleopatra covers her hands with her face, fading into the shadows.)

Narrator: And even those who seek to change what once was…

(Observers look on as the newest statue is unveiled, showing Malcolm Jones holding his EAW Championship high in the air whilst standing atop a mass of rubble.)

Narrator: But history itself is a continuum. Full of winding turns, as time moves on, so does history itself.

(The Camera turns and begins to trail down a new hallway, one where the curtain has only just begun to peel back, ready to be unveiled.)

Narrator: History waits for the ones who are strong, ready to be shaped, to be altered by those willing to stand against oppressors…

(A freshly hung oil painting depicts Tyler Wolfe standing defiantly against Kendra Shamez who towers over her as a colossus.)

Narrator: History seeks those who are willing to claim their place within it, the ones who may have been cast aside that rise up and shock the world…

(A clay sculpture depicts Miho Li, Consuela Rose Ava, Korey Gaines, Jesse Barlow, Cepheus St. Claire, and all other 24/7 Battle Royal participants reaching for the fabled 24/7 contract sitting just outside of their reach.)

Narrator: Those willing to cross all lines either to cement a legacy, or to redeem one…

(A granite statue portrays Drake King and Terry Chambers standing back to back.)

Narrator: History seeks those willing to climb for never before seen heights…

(An impressionist painting shows a group of people, all trying to climb a ladder. The Cash in the Vault briefcase hangs high above them.)

Narrator: The one’s who wish to prove they are the very best there is at what they do…

(A stone carving shows Impact, Noah Reigner, and Rex McAllister all looking upward to the EAW World Heavyweight Championship carved above their heads.)

Narrator: When the history books are written…

(Fade to black.)

Narrator: …will your name be recorded?

Narrator: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, EAW PROUDLY PRESENTS THE CONTINUATION OF THE MOST PRESTIGIOUS EVENT IN ALL OF WRESTLING! PAIN FOR PRIDE XII CONTINUES NOW WITH DAY TWO!

(Feed opens up to the Mercedes Benz Stadium, where the official sold out attendance of 78,950 are giving everything they have. “Redlight” by NGHTMRE and A$AP Ferg blares over the speakers, and a STUNNING series of pyro shoots off from the stage, across the ceiling of the stadium, and above the now closed roof of the stadium into the sky with a display of opening fireworks to signal the beginning of the night’s festivities.)

(The Camera pans across the raucous fans as they go wild for the upcoming events. We see the mass of the EAW Universe as no empty seats are to be found in the entire venue before we move to see the Voltage commentary desk with Rich Russillo and James Peters.)

Rich Russillo: Welcome everyone to the second evening of the greatest spectacle in this amazing sport! The twelfth annual Pain for Pride is ready to press on tonight as the EAW Roster is ready for a fresh set of battles! Hearts will be broken, careers will be made! I am Rich Russillo and I’m joined by my partner James Peters as we are here to get everything kicked off tonight!

James Peters: That’s right! We are the Voltage commentary team but tonight we welcome the entirety of the EAW Universe as we get ready for things to be underway here from Atlanta, Georgia! And do we have one hell of a match to get things started tonight!

View post on imgur.com

(The cameras cut away from Rich and James, and take in the sight of the ring. All the ring ropes have been removed as per the stipulation of the match, and just for a little added bonus, there is no protective padding on the ground.)

(Gotta make it more interesting, right?)

(The lights in the arena go completely dark, which sends the fans into a frenzy. They are screaming and shouting, full of energy because Day 2 of Pain for Pride is officially underway! White lights begin to flicker all around the stadium, and they’re blindingly bright. “Can I Live” by Jay-Z begins to play.)

James Peters: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN I CAN NOT WAIT FOR THIS MATCH!!!!

Rich Russillo: Since Grand Rampage, we have known that the Quintessential Champion, Impact, would be competing here tonight for the World Heavyweight Championship.

James Peters: For the majority of this season, the lives and stories of Noah Reigner, Rex McAllister, and Impact have been tied together. At various points, all of them have held the championship and gone back and forth with one another. It doesn’t shock me whatsoever that we find ourselves with a triple threat match here tonight for the title.

Rich Russillo: And Impact certainly made it more exciting by using his Gawd Contract.

James Peters: :wow:

(Impact appears on the stage and receives a mostly mixed reaction. The fans love to hate him, but they also know that every time he steps inside the ring there’s a chance to see history being made. Tonight is no exception, because a win would break the man’s own record for most world championships. Impact confidently strides down the ramp, paying absolutely no attention to the fans. He arrogantly smirks at the lack of ropes and padding, and makes his way up the ring steps. Once Impact takes his corner, his music fades out and the lighting returns to normal.)

(“Rise Up” By Drowning Pool blares through the speakers next. At first all that’s heard is the familiar solo notes along with the bass and the sparing use of the chimes which is an interlude in the song. The crowd is rather subdued and hushed, not having heard this theme in some time, but they seem to be anticipating who’s coming out first as the solo notes, bass, and chimes continue to be heard. On the tron above different live shots that appear to take place inside a training facility captures the dark outline of a figure lifting bench press weights, another doing sit-ups, followed by another doing push-ups. The live shots continue.)

I will sit right here
and bide my time.

As long as it takes
to get what’s
rightfully mine.
(What’s rightfully mine)

(The shots and images disappear and are suddenly replaced by the name ‘REX MCALLISTER’ enveloping the screen horizontally from sides opposite to the other and whole Mercedes-Benz Stadium rises from their seats and in unison absolutely erupt, losing their minds as Rex McAllister appears from beyond the curtains in his usual ring attire complimented with his black and white track jacket. He pauses on the stage and slowly looks around, out at the audience, first to the left, and then to the right before kneeling down to a knee where he bows his head with his hands clasped together. He utters some words that can’t be made out on the camera.)

And I won’t
be denied.

Cause all I’ve
got left is my
pride.

And I will rise
up.

(And with that Rex shoots up to a vertical base with nothing but intensity as pumps his fist forward and outward just as an explosion goes off for extra effect as the crowd gets louder leaving know doubt that they were absolutely behind him. He puts his hands to his mouth to enhance his echo of his voice over the sounds of the crowd and the music.)

Rex: ANYTHING’S POSSIBLE!!!

Break it out.
Break you down.
Breakin’ through.
Breakin’ ground.
Had your chance.
Now it’s gone.
All you take.
All you’ve done.

All I’ve done.

(Rex is shown walking down the ramp still wearing nothing but intensity on his face with an ice cold stare in his eyes. All for one reason, one purpose.)

James Peters: Rex McAllister is here, Rich! The former two time World champion who was in the main event at this very show last year, and now he’s back! But this time it’s as the challenger! He’s got a golden opportunity to break through this year, but he’s got the biggest possible challenge in front of him that one man can have!

Rich Russillo: You couldn’t have been more precise your analysis, James! Rex has a titanic like challenge that comes in the current World Heavyweight Champion, former Cash In The Vault winner, and rookie of the year, Noah Reigner, who up to this point has put down all challengers to his belt for the last four months with plenty of momentum to boot with seemingly no end in sight. And then, Impact. One of the greatest, if not the greatest Elitist of all time, who’s said that this generation is soft, and that guys like Rex McAllister don’t deserve to be in the top spot for as long he’s stalking through the lands!

And I will sit
right here
and I will
wait.

(Rex is shooting lasers up into the ring at the end of the entrance ramp at the front of the ring as the fans continue to stay loud for him, chanting his name.)

Crowd: REX! REX! REX! REX! REX! REX! REX! REX! REX! REX! REX! REX! REX! REX! REX! REX! REX! REX! REX! REX! REX! REX! REX! REX! REX! REX! REX! REX! REX! REX! REX! REX! REX! REX! REX! REX! REX! REX! REX!

Patiently for
your last big
mistaaaaakkkkkkkeeeeee.

(Rex gets to the top of the ring steps where he pauses on the apron and looks out at the crowd and then nodding his head never losing his intensity.)

And I won’t
be denied.

(Rex steps into the ring and stands there for a moment. He locks eyes with Impact and then takes his corner. He unzips his track jacket and tosses it to the side, before raising his arms up with his fists clenched. The crowd is beside themselves for Rex!!!)

Cause all I’ve
got left is my
pride.

And I will rise
up.

(Rex taunts at the crowd with words that are not audible as he points to himself.)

Break it out.
Break you down.
Breakin’ through.
Breakin’ ground.
Had your chance.
Now it’s gone.
All you take.
All you’ve done.
I control my
own fate and
for you it’s too
late.
It’s my dream.
It’s my way.
It’s my life.
It’s your pain.

(The Guitar solo plays for about twenty more seconds into the ending as Rex McAllister circles the ring. With a clenched fist he gives his chest a few pumps with it as he settles down.)

Crowd: REX! REX! REX! REX! REX! REX! REX! REX! REX! REX! REX! REX! REX! REX! REX! REX! REX! REX! REX! REX! REX! REX! REX! REX! REX! REX! REX! REX! REX! REX! REX! REX! REX! REX! REX! REX! REX! REX! REX!

(After a few seconds, the ‘REX’ chants go quiet. There’s only one entrance left and it belongs to the World Heavyweight Champion.)

(The lighting in the arena dimmed very low for a few moments. The crowd sat in silence as they watched ten men – dressed in all black riot gear, including face masks, helmets and bulletproof vests – march onto the stage. The men split into two groups, five on one side of the Pain for Pride stage and five on the other. There was a few moments where nothing happened. The men stood perfectly still, even as a very soft white light washed over them. The most disturbing detail was what they carried. All ten of them carried AK-47 style assault rifles in their hands.)

James Peters: :lupe:

Rich Russillo: :lupe:

(For the few moments of silence, they stood – all facing the ring. The eerie silence in the arena ceased when a voice was heard over the speaker. The voice had a level of distortion added, Asif speaking through a walkie.)

Voice (O.S.): Firing squad – ready?

(It was at that time that the gunmen lifted their assault rifles. The sold out crowd in Atlanta, Georgia watched on – a mixture of horror and excitement sweeping the crowd. Faint screams are heard, terror building at what was in the midst of happening. The gunmen remained motionless, waiting for the signal. There were several seconds that passed before the sound system was heard again. This time it was William Defoe’s voice that overtook the P.A. A legendary quote of his, removed from the movie Boondock Saints, played loudly – the reverb controls turned up to max so his voice echoed several times.)

“For a few seconds ….
this place was Armageddon …

Ughhhhhh…….

THERE WAS A FIREFIGHT!”

(After Willam Dafoe’s yell, the gunmen that lined the stage lifted their assault rifles to point toward the sky – and they pulled the triggers.)

(The guns fired, but not bullets as everyone feared. Instead the guns were constructed to look like the real thing, but to shoot off mini fireworks instead. The sky lit up with white bursts of light in the sky that accompanied the bursting mixed with audio recording of an actual assault rifle being fired. What was once terror that filled the Mercedes-Benz stadium was replaced by cheers and gasps. And then – it all fell silent. After the last of the rounds were fired, and the light dissipated from the sky – the entire arena fell into darkness. The only lights were the very top of the opened roof of the Mercedes-Benz stadium. More silence filled the arena until..)

“I SHOOT THE LIGHTS OUT …
HIDE ‘TIL IT’S LIGHT OUT.

WHOA, JUST ANOTHER LONELY NIGHT …
ARE YOU WILLING TO SACRIFICE YOUR LIFE?”

(The video screen played a lyrical play trough of Bon Iver’s opening to the infamous song for people to sing along with. The screen went back to black for a short moment until a techno-like beat dropped and the song began. It was a remixed version of Kayne West’s “Monster”, specifically speaking – the Karetus remix. When that beat dropped and the distorted vocals began, the video screen began to play a video package of Noah Reigner.)

(A single spotlight shined down to the entrance and that was where the EAW World Heavyweight Champion standing, shrouded in a cloud of smoke. The championship was strapped tightly around his waist, covered by the ends of his entrance jacket – and his face covered with the same style face mask the gunmen wore.)

James Peters: WHAT AN ENTRANCE FOR OUR WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION!!!

Rich Russillo: I FUCKING LOVE IT! THIS IS PAIN FOR PRIDE!!!

James Peters: Noah Reigner has been absolutely amazing this year and this is his moment to shine. There has never been anyone like him to step foot in this company. Noah’s brash arrogance and edge have made him a standout Elitist, but his work ethic has proven time and time again that he is one hell of a competitor.

(As Noah moved down the ramp, the spotlight followed him. As he approached the ring, fans in the front row would lean over – trying their best to touch or get some kind of reaction from Noah. A couple lucky fans ended up getting hand slaps, or a fist bump – one child was even lucky enough to receive the mask after he took it off. Afterwards, Noah climbed into the ring where he shot looks right at Impact and Rex. He took his corner, unstrapped the championship from around his waist, and raised it high in the air. Flashbulbs went off all over the arena for the few moments this was taking place. They ceased once Noah lowered his championship. The lights began to return to normal.)

(It was time for the official match introductions!)

(The shot cuts to where Bella Braxton is standing by. She looks beautiful in a skintight, beaded silver mini-dress and black Jimmy Choo pumps. Her hair and makeup are flawless, which is nothing unusual, and she raises the microphone up to her red lips.)

Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… THE FOLLOWING MATCH IS SCHEDULED FOR…

Crowd: ONE FALL!!!

Bella Braxton: AND IT’S A NO ROPES SUBMISSION MATCH FOR THE ELITE ANSWERS WRESTLING WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP!!!!

(The referee has the championship belt now and he holds it up in the air.)

Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING FIRST… HE IS ONE OF OUR CHALLENGERS… FROM SEATTLE, WASHINGTON… WEIGHING IN AT 240 POUNDS… HE IS THE 8-TIME WORLD CHAMPION… THE QUINTESSENTIAL CHAMPION… IMPACT!!!!

(There is no reaction from Impact.)

Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING NEXT… HE IS THE SECOND OF OUR CHALLENGERS… FROM SEA ISLE, NEW JERSEY… WEIGHING IN AT 238 POUNDS… REX MCALLISTER!!!!!

(Rex cracks his knuckles, ready to go!)

Bella Braxton: AND THEIR OPPONENT… ALSO FROM SEATTLE, WASHINGTON… WEIGHING IN AT 184 POUNDS… HE IS THE REIGNING… THE DEFENDING… WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION… HE IS ‘THE ASSAULT RIFLE’ NOAH REIGNER!!!

(Noah cocks his fingers in a gun motion at both Rex and Impact and mimics shooting them both.)

Noah Reigner (Off Mic): House. Always. Wins.

(The referee takes a look at all three competitors and without wasting another second, he calls for the bell!)

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

James Peters: This is going to be one hell of a match.

Rich Russillo: Noah, Rex, and Impact all look at one another, fists up, and ready for this fight. All three men are circling one another, and it’s Impact who throws the first punch, looking to connect with Noah! Noah dodges, and Rex takes the next shot. He looks to hit Impact, but the eight-time champ side steps the blow and stops in his tracks. Rex and Noah are standing side by side, and Impact springs forward, looking to take them both down with a clothesline!

James Peters: Noah and Rex both duck and Impact has to slam on the breaks because there are no ropes! Rex and Noah look at one another and nod, even though there is no love lost between the two of them, and they both leap up in the air and catch Impact in the back with a double drop kick! Impact falls from the ring and hits the floor.

Rich Russillo: There are no mats, so that’s solid ground Impact just hit, and that allows Rex and Noah to turn their attention to one another! Rex jabs at Noah with a right hand, but the champ moves to his left and swings wildly! He’s looking to connect with the side of Rex’s head, but Rex ducks underneath the left hook. Rex lands a right hand in Noah’s stomach, slips behind him, and grabs him around the waist! Rex takes Noah down to the mat and goes for a front facelock, but Impact is back in the ring and he clubs Rex in the back!

James Peters: Rex has to let go and Impact pulls him up by the hair! Impact catches Rex with a stiff forearm shot, wraps his arm around Rex’s neck, and plants him into the mat with a DDT! Impact turns his attention to Noah, who is back up, and looking to take down the Hall of Famer! Noah lunges for Impact, but Impact catches him with an elbow to the jaw, grabs Noah, and bulldogs him into the mat!

Rich Russillo: Look at that arrogant smile! This capacity crowd is letting Impact have it! For weeks, Impact has been toying with Rex and Noah, playing Gawd and using his contract to build this match, and in the opening minutes of this contest, it’s Impact who’s standing tall.

James Peters: But both Rex and Noah are stirring, and it’s Rex who’s getting up first. Impact circles Rex, and Rex lunges for the leg! Rex takes control of Impact, and brings him down to the mat. Both men are exchanging chain wrestling holds, and it’s Rex who manages to get Impact in position and he locks him in camel clutch! Rex has Impact locked in that submission and is putting all the pressure on Impact’s lower back right now!

Rich Russillo: But Noah is back up to his feet! He sprints forward and takes Rex out with a basement style dropkick! Impact is freed from that hold and Noah begins to let loose those shoot style kicks on Rex! Rex has gotten to his knees but Noah’s strikes are landing on Rex’s shoulders, arms, and chest! Noah showing off incredible precision right now, and he backs up! RUNNING KNEE TO THE FACE! REX IS DOWN!

James Peters: Impact is able to lunge at Noah and he clips Noah in the back of the knee! Impact tries to lock Noah in a kneebar, but Noah uses those long limbs to catch Impact in the head with a kick, and he works his way back up! Impact has returned to his knees and Noah looks to catch him in the chest with a kick, but Impact catches the leg and snaps Noah to the mat! Noah rolls out of an attempted kneebar, and slides behind Impact! Noah wraps Impact in a rear chinlock, and places his knee square in the middle of Impact’s back! Noah is pulling straight back with that chinlock firmly applied!

Rich Russillo: Rex has returned to his feet and he makes his way over to Noah. He grabs Noah by the hair and pulls him off Impact. Rex looks to bring Noah up, but Noah blocks the suplex attempt and nails Rex in the stomach with those closed fist punches! Rex is forced to let go, and Noah drives his knee up into Rex’s face! He grabs Rex up… snap suplex!

James Peters: Noah begins dropping knees down onto Rex, and he’s making sure they hit their mark! Rex grabs Noah by the head and brings his legs up, looking to wrap Noah in a headscissors, but the champ is grabbed from behind by Impact!

Rich Russillo: Impact with a waistlock! He wrestles Noah down to the mat, and climbs on top of him! Impact with forearm shots to Noah’s face! That’s allowing Rex to recover and now Rex is back up! Rex rips Impact off of Noah… GERMAN SUPLEX!

James Peters: Rex keeps the waistlock! He is pulling them both back up! Rex goes for a second German Suplex in a row! REX MAINTAINS CONTROL! HE’S BACK UP WITH IMPACT IN HIS CLUTCHES! REX IS LOOKING FOR A THIRD STRAIGHT GERMAN SUPLEX BUT NOAH CLUBS REX IN THE BACK!

Rich Russillo: REX LETS GO OF IMPACT AND NOAH GRABS REX FROM BEHIND AND SPINS HIM AROUND! ROGUE CUTTER! THAT JUMPING CUTTER TAKES REX DOWN! NOAH IS LOOKING FOR THE NOAHLEAF SUBMISSION NOW!!!! NOAH GRABS REX IN HIS VERSION OF THE CLOVERLEAF AND REX INSTANTLY FINDS HIMSELF VULNERABLE! THERE ARE NO ROPES TO CRAWL TOWARDS! THERE ARE NO BREAKS IN THIS MATCH! YOU GOTTA TAP OUT OR PASS OUT!

James Peters: IMPACT FROM BEHIND! WHAT THE F-

Rich Russillo: IMPACT WITH A DOUBLE-HANDED CLAW VERSION OF THE CLAW HOLD ON NOAH!! IMPACT IS SQUEEZING NOAH’S SKULL AND HAS DRAGGED HIM AWAY FROM REX!!! IMPACT FORCING THE CHAMP TO HIS KNEES NOW AND THE REFEREE IS RIGHT THERE! HE’S CHECKING ON NOAH BUT NOAH REFUSES TO QUIT! IMPACT LETS GO OF THE HOLD AND SLAMS HIS KNEE INTO THE BACK OF NOAH’S HEAD!

James Peters: Impact grabs Noah and rams him head first into the ring post! Noah falls to the ground, and Impact goes for Rex! Impact pulls Rex up and hits with a tilt-a-whirl backbreaker! Rex is down! Impact mounts Rex and begins to throwing those rights and lefts! Rex is able to get his hands up and grip Impact around the back of the neck! He brings his legs up, looking for a triangle choke, but Impact with the forearm shot to Rex’s jaw! Impact with several more forearms!!! Rex lets go of Impact but he is still trying for that body scissors! Impact continues to level Rex with forearms!

Rich Russillo: REX JUST CAUGHT IMPACT’S ARM! REX HAS THE ARM! REX LOOKING FOR THE ARMBAR! REX IS BACK UP IN A SITTING POSITION AND HE HAS IMPACT! IMPACT QUICKLY GETS BACK TO HIS FEET AND REX LETS GO! BUT REX IS BACK UP AND HE RUSHES TOWARDS IMPACT!

James Peters: They engage in a collar-and-elbow tie up and both men are jockeying back and forth for position! Rex grabs Impact in a standing side headlock but Impact elbows his way out of that! Impact takes control, sweeping Rex’s feet out from under him! Impact kicks Rex over onto his stomach and grabs the legs! Impact grabs Rex’s right arm in a stepover armlock!!! Impact reaches forward and grabs Rex in a chinlock, and this is a unique version of the camel clutch for sure!

Rich Russillo: Rex is no doubt feeling the pressure in his arm and upper back now!

James Peters: Noah has staggered back up to his feet now and that prompts Impact to let go of Rex! Impact returns to a vertical base, and Noah is shaking the cobwebs out right now!

Rich Russillo: The World Heavyweight Champion looks over at Impact, and Impact just smirks. I’m not sure what Impact is saying right now, but Noah doesn’t look all that impressed right now.

James Peters: There is literally no respect between these two men whatsoever. They despise each other! Impact and Noah have had so many harsh things to say to one another, and I know that I speak for everyone inside Mercedes-Benz Stadium when I say, just fuckin’ hit each other! Don’t hold anything back!

Rich Russillo: AND HERE WE GO! IMPACT AND NOAH ARE TAKING IT TO ONE ANOTHER! NOAH AND IMPACT THROWING RIGHTS AND LEFTS, AND NEITHER ONE IS HOLDING ANYTHING BACK! NOAH SLAMS HIS FIST RIGHT INTO IMPACT’S MOUTH! AND FOLLOWS IT UP WITH A KNEE TO THE STOMACH! IMPACT DOUBLES OVER! NOAH FOLLOWS IT UP KNEE TO THE FACE AND THAT KNEE CRACKS IMPACT RIGHT IN THE NOSE! IMPACT STAGGERS BACK!!!!

James Peters: AND HE STUMBLES RIGHT INTO REX! REX WHIRLS IMPACT AROUND AND HITS HIM WITH A RIGHT HAND! THAT SENDS IMPACT RIGHT BACK AT NOAH, AND NOAH PUNCHES IMPACT! REX WITH A PUNCH TO IMPACT! NOW IT’S NOAH’S TURN! NOW BOTH MEN ARE MUGGING IMPACT AND BEATING HIM TO THE GROUND! REX AND NOAH TRADING SHOTS ON IMPACT AND NOW THEY’RE PULLING IMPACT UP! THEY PLACE IMPACT BETWEEN THEM AND LIFT HIM UP IN THE AIR! STALLING SUPLEX! THEY’RE LETTING ALL THE BLOOD RUSH TO IMPACT’S HEAD NOW! THEY WAIT A FEW MORE SECONDS AND DROP IMPACT INTO THE MAT!!!

Rich Russillo: Noah and Rex return to their feet and they look at one another! NOW THEY’RE STOMPING AWAY ON IMPACT!

James Peters: This double team is exactly what Impact deserves because of the way he played Gawd in the build-up to this match! I don’t feel bad for him whatsoever!

Rich Russillo: That’s the 8-time champion, James!

James Peters: Rex lifts up Impact and locks his arms! Noah with this devastating shots to Impact’s gut now! Noah switches his target to the rib cage area and Rex lets go of Impact! Impact slumps to the ground and is holding his side and Noah begins kicking away at those ribs! Rex pushes Noah back and gets his licks in too! And now both of them assaulting the Gawd Contract holder again!

Rich Russillo: Rex drops an elbow down across Impact’s throat and Noah follows it up with a knee! They pick Impact up and toss him out of the ring and to the ground!

James Peters: Rex and Noah smirk at one another, and Rex offers a test of strength! Noah and Rex lock hands and Rex easily overpowers the smaller World Heavyweight Champion! Rex forces Noah back against the ringpost, and knees Noah in the gut a couple of times! He pulls Noah back towards the center of the ring, hits a snapmare, and kicks Noah with in the back! Rex with a series of kicks now to the back and you can see how painful those kicks are judging by Noah’s face! Rex steps in front of Noah and backs up to the edge of the ring! Rex rushes forward! Basement style drop kick! Noah falls back and Rex grabs Noah by the legs! He wraps Noah in a figure four!!!

Rich Russillo: Noah begins flailing about! He is trying to his damndest to reverse that figure four leglock but so far he’s not having any success!! Rex is so strong and so solid when it comes to submissions, and Noah is in a lot of trouble!

James Peters: But our champ has so much heart, Rich! He is doing everything he can to flip this hold and put the pressure on Rex! Noah is at an angle now and he is digging deep! The crowd is into it! Despite the fact they love Rex, they can’t help but cheer for the champ as well! Noah has worked so hard to prove that he belongs on a stage like this!

Rich Russillo: NOAH IS ABLE TO REVERSE THE HOLD! NOAH HAS PLACED ALL THE PRESSURE ON REX NOW AND REX HAS NO CHOICE BUT TO LET GO!!!

James Peters: Noah crawls to the edge of the ring while Rex is slow to return to his feet! Rex shakes off the effects of that reverse figure four and he makes his way back over to Noah! He helps the champ back up, and Noah shoves him off. Rex rears back and throws a huge right hand, but Noah is able to get his arm up and block the shot! Noah with a European style uppercut that catches Rex and snaps his head back! Noah with a second uppercut! AND A THIRD!! NOAH WITH A STIFF RIGHT HAND NOW AND REX HITS THE MAT!

Rich Russillo: I think Noah put all his weight behind that shot because Rex went down hard! The former two-time champ is not a man who gets taken down easily and Noah is quick to capitalize, going right for Rex’s ankle! Noah grabs that ankle and twists it, which brings Rex back to life! He grabs Noah by the hair and looks to defend against the ankle lock! Noah breaks and motions for Rex to get up. Rex checks his jaw, which is still intact after that shot from Noah took him down, and both men start circling one another!

James Peters: Noah throws a kick, connecting with Rex’s thigh! They continue circling one another, and this time it’s Rex who throws a kick! Noah dives for the leg, and is able to get Rex down! Noah gets Rex from behind, as Rex is able to get all his limbs underneath of him, and Noah wraps his arms around Rex’s neck! Noah with a sleeper hold on Rex… but look! Rex is forcing himself up and Noah locks his legs around Rex! Rex is standing, and Noah is hanging on to that sleeper for dear life!

Rich Russillo: Rex does the only thing he can do right now and that’s fall back to the mat! The impact causes Noah to lose his grip on Rex and for the moment both men are down!

James Peters: Look who’s back in the ring now! Impact is favoring his ribs but he grabs Rex up! Impact takes Rex and he rams him shoulder first into the ring post! Rex drops down to the outside and Impact turns his attention to Noah! The Quintessential Champion grabs Noah up and gets him in a powerbomb position! Impact slams Noah into the mat and keeps his grip!!! Impact lifts Noah up again and he’s walking him over to the edge of the ring!!! Noah senses what’s about to happen and he begins fighting back! Noah with punches to Impact’s skull but Impact isn’t phased!!! Impact powerbombs Noah to the outside of the ring!!!

Rich Russillo: Impact is the only competitor left inside the ring and the crowd isn’t happy about that at all! Impact mockingly raises his arms in the air like he’s won the match!

James Peters: Well if Impact wants to capture his ninth world title, he’s gotta get either Noah or Rex back inside the ring!

Rich Russillo: Impact is in no hurry to bring either man back inside the ring. Noah Reigner was just rocked with that powerbomb to the outside, and even though Rex is sitting up right now, he is holding his shoulder. You know that shoulder is about to become a target, especially when there’s so much on the line here tonight. This isn’t just about the World Heavyweight Championship. This match has become so personal for these three men.

James Peters: Bitter words, laced with pure hate and scorn, were thrown back and forth this week as only these three men can do. Each of them so unique and so special in their own way, and they all represent the very embodiment of the word ‘elite.’ Impact finally drops down to the outside and steps right on Noah, as he makes his way over to Rex. The sheer disrespect of that little stunt isn’t going to go unnoticed, I’m sure.

Rich Russillo: Impact looks to help Rex up to his feet, but Rex lands a few punches to Impact’s gut with his good arm. That doesn’t phase Impact, who goes right back over to Rex. Rex wisely rolls onto his back, throwing his legs up, and he kicks out at Impact. Impact attempts to approach Rex from the side, but Rex is arguably the best technician in EAW. There is a reason he is content to stay down at the moment.

James Peters: Impact finally makes his move! He goes for the leg, but Rex sits up and is able to grab Impact into a modified choke. Impact looks to power out, but Rex has his good arm wrapped firmly around Impact’s neck. Impact stops moving, and you can see the wheels inside his mind turning. He’s trying to think of the best possible escape for this situation. Rex bends Impact forward and that exposes the side of Impact’s head…

Rich Russillo: FUCK!

James Peters: REX JUST DROVE HIS ELBOW RIGHT INTO IMPACT’S EAR!

Rich Russillo: DID YOU HEAR THE NOISE THAT ELBOW MADE?! I’m pretty sure he just busted Impact’s eardrum.

(The camera closest to Rex and Impact zooms in, and the viewers watching can see blood trickling out of Impact’s ear.)

James Peters: That is absolutely brilliant strategy from Rex McAllister. A busted eardrum is going to fuck up Impact’s equillibrium. That could potentially change the entire course of this match.

Rich Russillo: Rex takes his elbow and he digs it into the side of Impact’s head! Impact is grabbing at Rex’s arm right now, and he finally latches on to Rex’s fingers. Impact is pulling back on Rex’s fingers and Rex wisely lets go of the choke. He unwraps himself from around Impact and pulls Mr. 8 Times up by the hair. Rex takes Impact and he whips him into the barricades! Impact’s back slams against the steel and Rex turns his attention to Noah. The reigning World Heavyweight Champion has gotten back up, and was making his way over to Rex and Impact. Rex meets Noah head on and catches him with a boot to the gut. Rex shakes out that injured shoulder, and connects with an uppercut. Noah, who is holding his lower back thanks to the powerbomb, shrugs it off, and fires back with a forearm!

James Peters: Rex drives his knee into Noah’s stomach, grabs him by the neck, and bounces his face off the apron! Noah is able to get himself back inside and Rex gets in after him. Noah rolls to the opposite side, to allow himself a chance to get back up, but Rex is right there! He looks to drop an elbow down on Noah!

Rich Russillo: Noah moves out of the way and that leaves Rex down on the canvas! Noah pounces! He begins punching Rex’s injured shoulder! Noah gets back to his feet and stands behind Rex, and he’s got a nerve lock applied to that shoulder! Noah is using his hands and fingers to compress the top of Rex’s shoulder and look at the anguish on Rex’s face right now! If that shoulder wasn’t already injured, it definitely is now!

James Peters: The referee is now asking Rex if he wants to quit, but Rex is shaking his head. Noah lets go of that nerve lock and he begins clubbing Rex right in the chest! Noah backs up just a bit and pushes himself forward… FRONT FLIP NECKBREAKER! REX JUST ATE A FACE FULL OF CANVAS! NOAH MOUNTS REX NOW AND BEGINS HAMMERING AWAY ON HIM! NOAH’S STRIKES ARE CONNECTING WITH REX’S FACE AND NOAH LETS UP LONG ENOUGH TO SHIFT HIS POSITION! HE HAS HIS KNEE ACROSS REX’S THROAT NOW AND REX IS STRUGGLING! THE CHAMPION SLAMS HIS FIST INTO REX’S NOSE REPEATEDLY AND HE HAS DRAWN BLOOD!

Rich Russillo: Rex is taking a pure beating right now at the hands of Noah Reigner! His nose is likely broken!! Noah continues to hammer away at Rex, while keeping his knee firmly placed across Rex’s throat!

James Peters: IMPACT WITH A DROP KICK FROM BEHIND!!

Rich Russillo: Impact is back in the ring now and he just saved Rex McAllister! Noah scrambles back to his feet but Impact is right there! Now it’s Impact and Noah who are locked up! Impact manages to drive Noah back against the ringpost! Noah fires back with a knee to the gut, and drives his elbow down into the back of Impact’s neck. Imp falls to his knees and that allows Noah to catch him with a knee to the face. Impact falls back and Noah slips to the outside of the ring. He grabs Impact and drags him towards the post, wrapping Impact’s arm around it… and now he is kicking it! Noah is holding Impact’s arm in place while putting the boots to it! He wrenches back on Imp’s arm and slams it into the ringpost!

James Peters: Noah is back inside now and he kicks Impact in the ribs! Noah with another soccer style kick to Impact’s ribcage, and now he is stomping away on the arm he was working on a few seconds ago! Impact tries to roll out of the way, but Noah steps to the opposite side of Impact, clasps Impact’s good arm with his legs, and now he’s reaching for the injured arm! Noah grabs Impact’s injured arm and he’s forced The Quintessential Champion onto his side! This scissored armbar has placed all the pressure on both of Impact’s shoulder joints, and right now it looks like he is struggling!!!

Rich Russillo: IMPACT STUBBORNLY REFUSES TO CRY OUT, AND THAT IS FORCING NOAH TO CONTINUE TO APPLY THE PRESSURE! IMAGINE GETTING THE LEGENDARY IMPACT TO SUBMIT! IMPACT IS SHAKING HIS HEAD AS THE REFEREE ASKS HIM IF HE WANTS TO QUIT! BUT JAMES, SOMETHING’S GOTTA GIVE! THIS HOLD COULD SERIOUSLY INJURE IMPACT IF HE ALLOWS NOAH TO KEEP HIM IN IT!

James Peters: REX IS BACK UP AND HE JUST KICKED NOAH IN THE HEAD! NOAH LETS GO OF THE ARM SCISSORS AND IMPACT ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY! REX TAKES NOAH AND HE THROWS HIM HEAD FIRST INTO THE RINGPOST! NOAH’S HEAD CONNECTS WITH THE POST!!! REX TURNS TO IMPACT, WHO IS CRADLING HIS ARM, AND TRYING TO SHAKE OFF THE EFFECTS OF THE TORTURE HE JUST WENT THROUGH! REX RUSHES FOR IMPACT AND SLAMS HIS KNEE INTO THE SIDE OF IMP’S HEAD! REX WISELY PLACED THAT KNEE STRIKE RIGHT ON IMPACT’S BLOODY EAR, AND REX GRABS HOLD OF IMPACT’S INJURED ARM! REX WITH A FUJIWARA ARMBAR NOW! REX TRANSITIONS INTO A BRIDGING VERSION OF THE MOVE AND IMPACT IS FUCKED!!!

Rich Russillo: YOU CAN SEE THE AGONY WRITTEN ALL OVER IMPACT’S FACE RIGHT NOW! THEY ARE CLOSE TO THE EDGE OF THE RING AND IF THERE WERE ROPES THEN IMPACT WOULD BE ABLE TO GRAB THEM!

James Peters: BUT THERE ARE NO ROPES WHICH IS THE BARBARIC ASPECT OF THIS MATCH!!! YOU HAVE TO BE WILLING TO GO THROUGH HELL IF YOU WANT TO WIN IT!!!!

Rich Russillo: REX IS LOOKING TO BECOME A THREE-TIME WORLD CHAMPION!!!!

James Peters: IMPACT IS STILL HANGING ON BUT HE IS GOING TO BE LEFT WITH A BROKEN ARM IF HE DOESN’T MAKE A DECISION ABOUT WHAT HE WANTS TO DO!!!!

Rich Russillo: NOAH REIGNER JUST STOMPED ON REX’S MID-SECTION!

James Peters: NOAH JUST SAVED HIS CHAMPIONSHIP AND IMPACT ROLLS OUT OF THE RING! THE HALL OF FAMER IS ON THE GROUND NOW, AND HE’S NOT IN GOOD SHAPE!

Rich Russillo: BUT INSIDE THE RING NOAH HAS GRABBED REX!!! REX SHOVES NOAH OFF BUT NOAH COMES FIRING BACK WITH A SERIES OF OPEN-HANDED PALM STRIKES! HE CONNECTS WITH REX’S FACE AND HEAD, AND THAT FORCES REX INTO A POSITION WHERE HE HAS TO FIGHT BACK! HE IS ABLE TO CATCH NOAH WITH A CHOP TO THE CHEST! THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION IS STOPPED IN HIS TRACKS BECAUSE OF IT! REX FIRES OFF ANOTHER CHOP! AND ANOTHER! AND ANOTHER! HE CHOPS NOAH BACK TOWARDS THAT RINGPOST AND REX LETS LOOSE ANOTHER CHOP! NOAH’S CHEST IS TURNING RED NOW, BUT THAT DOESN’T STOP REX! HE CONTINUES TO CHOP AWAY AT NOAH, DOING WHATEVER HE CAN TO CAVE NOAH’S CHEST IN! REX GRABS NOAH BY THE ARM NOW AND HE IS KICKING THE CHAMPION IN THE CHEST!!! REX IS ABSOLUTELY STOMPING A MUDHOLE INTO NOAH BUT BECAUSE HE’S HOLDING HIM UP, NOAH REMAINS ON HIS FEET!

James Peters: REX DRIVES HIS KNEE INTO NOAH’S JAW! REX ANOTHER CHOP TO NOAH’S CHEST! KNEE STRIKE TO THE JAW! CHOP TO THE CHEST! REX CONTINUES THIS ASSAULT AND HE FINALLY… FINALLY KICKS NOAH IN THE STOMACH AND HOISTS HIM UP IN THE AIR!!! THE OLYMPIC SLAM CONNECTS!!! NOAH IS FLAT ON HIS BACK AND THIS CROWD IS GOING NUTS! REX HITS A STANDING MOONSAULT ON NOAH AND HE TURNS HIS ATTENTION TO NOAH’S LOWER BACK AREA! REX IS HAMMERING AWAY AT NOAH’S KIDNEY AREA! HE IS LOOKING TO SOFTEN HIM UP!!! REX IS ALL FOREARM SHOTS AND ELBOWS RIGHT NOW!!! NOAH IS TRYING TO DIG IN AND CRAWL TO THE EDGE OF THE RING, BUT REX GRABS HIM AND JERKS HIM BACK TO THE CENTER OF THE RING!!! REX HAS A CERTAIN KIND OF LOOK IN HIS EYES RIGHT NOW AND I THINK HE IS LOOKING TO END THIS MATCH!!! REX TAKES NOAH FROM BEHIND AND BRINGS HIM DOWN TO THE MAT! NOAH LOOKS TO KEEP HIMSELF OFF THE GROUND AGAINST REX, BUT REX IS ABLE TO THREAD HIS LEGS THROUGH NOAH’S AND PULL NOAH ON TOP OF HIM!!!!

Rich Russillo: REX IS GOING FOR NOAH’S OPPOSITE ARM RIGHT NOW, WHILE SECURING HIS LEGS IN PLACE!!!! REX PULLS NOAH’S ARM BEHIND HIS OWN HEAD AND HE HAS NOAH’S HEAD!!!! HE PULLS NOAH’S HEAD DOWN TO HIS SHOULDER!

James Peters: REX JUST BUSTED OUT A TWISTER, WHICH IS A NECK CRANK TYPE OF SUBMISSION HOLD THAT IS POPULARIZED IN MIXED MARTIAL ARTS!!!! THIS COULD BREAK NOAH’S NECK AND FUCK UP HIS BACK!!!!!

Rich Russillo: REX IS CONTORTING NOAH’S SPINE WITH THAT SIDE BACKBEND ANGLE AND JESUS CHRIST, JAMES! NOAH IS GOING TO HAVE TO GIVE THIS MATCH UP AND LIVE TO FIGHT ANOTHER DAY!

James Peters: :lupe:

Rich Russillo: IT DOESN’T LOOK GOOD FOR NOAH REIGNER WHATSOEVER RIGHT NOW. NOAH IS NOT A QUITTER BUT HE MIGHT NOT HAVE A CHOICE IF HE WANTS TO KEEP HIS PROFESSIONAL WRESTLING CAREER INTACT. SOME THINGS ARE MORE IMPORTANT THAN EGO AND NOAH HAS THE TALENT AND THE SKILLS TO BECOME ONE OF THE BEST WRESTLERS TO EVER GRACE THESE HALLOWED HALLS!!!!

James Peters: BUT THIS IS PAIN FOR PRIDE AND NO ONE WANTS TO GIVE UP. NONE OF THESE MEN WANT TO GIVE THE OTHER THE SATISFACTION OF QUITTING! NOAH MIGHT NOT HA-

Rich Russillo: IMPACT JUST DOVE ON TOP OF BOTH OF THEM!!!!

James Peters: IMPACT MIGHT HAVE JUST SAVED NOAH REIGNER’S CAREER!

Rich Russillo: IMPACT IS BACK TO HIS FEET, BUT LOOK AT HIS ARM! IT’S JUST KIND OF HANGING THERE!

James Peters: REX QUICKLY GETS TO HIS FEET AND HE LOCKS EYES WITH IMPACT! THESE TWO MEN WENT TO WAR A FEW MONTHS AGO AT KING OF ELITE IN THE FIRST EVER BARBED WIRE MASSACRE MATCH AND WE ALL KNOW HOW THAT TURNED OUT!!!!

Rich Russillo: THEY’RE EXCHANGING WORDS RIGHT NOW AND IT’S IMPACT WHO FIRES OFF THE FIRST SHOT! HE STRIKES REX WITH A KICK TO THE THIGH! REX ANSWERS WITH A KICK OF HIS OWN! IMPACT WITH A KICK! REX WITH A KICK! BOTH MEN ARE JUST LAYING INTO ONE ANOTHER WITH THESE STIFF ASS KICKS!!!! IT’S IMPACT! IT’S REX! IMPACT! REX! IMPACT! REX! IMPACT! REX! REX! REX! REX WITH A SPINNING HEEL KICK AND IT CONNECTS TO SEND IMPACT DOWN TO THE MAT! REX BEGINS STOMPING AWAY AT IMPACT’S ARM AGAIN!

James Peters: REX DROPS TO HIS KNEES AND BENDS IMPACT’S ARM BACK! HE IS EXPOSING THE BACK PART OF THE ARM BY DOING THIS, BUT LOOK AT THE ANGLE IT’S BENT AT! REX GETS TO HIS FEET AND IMMEDIATELY DROPS A KNEE DOWN ON THAT ARM!!!! YIKES!!!

Rich Russillo: Rex takes control of Impact and drags him to the edge of the ring. Rex slips to the floor, but he still has Impact’s arm. He slams it into the edge of the ring! Rex does it again! AND HE SLAMS THE ARM INTO THE RING A THIRD TIME!!! REX ROLLS IMPACT OVER ONTO HIS BACK AND DRAPES HIM OVER THE EDGE OF THE RING! REX HANGS ON TO THE ARM AND JUMPS IN THE AIR!!!!

James Peters: DID HE JUST TRY SOME WEIRD VERSION OF A FLYING CRUCIFIX ARMBAR?!

Rich Russillo: HE HAS IT LOCKED IN AND HE IS LOOKING TO BREAK IMPACT’S ARM RIGHT NOW! IMPACT IS HANGING ON TO THE EDGE OF THE RING, WHILE REX IS DOING WHATEVER HE CAN TO END THIS MATCH!

James Peters: I DON’T THINK YOU CAN WIN THIS MATCH ON THE FLOOR!

Rich Russillo: BUT IMPACT IS KIND OF IN THE RING!!!

James Peters: OH WHO EVEN FUCKING KNOWS ANYMORE?! THIS IS JUST VINTAGE VOLTAGE!!!!

Rich Russillo: :wow: Home of chaos and fuckery.

James Peters: IMPACT FINALLY DOES THE SMART THING AND LETS HIMSELF FALL TO THE FLOOR! THAT CAUSES REX TO LOSE HIS GRIP ON THE SUBMISSION! IMPACT ROLLS AWAY FROM REX, BUT REX IS QUICK TO GRAB IMPACT AND HE THROWS HIM INTO THE RING STEPS! IMPACT LANDS SHOULDER FIRST INTO THAT STEEL. REX TURNS AROUND TO GET BA-

Rich Russillo: KILLSHOT!!! KILLSHOT!!!

James Peters: NOAH REIGNER JUST FLEW OUT OF THE RING AND HAS KNOCKED REX MCALLISTER OUT WITH THE KILLSHOT!!!

Rich Russillo: IMPACT IS DOWN! REX IS OUT LIKE A FUCKING LIGHT! AND IT’S THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION WHO IS PICKING HIMSELF UP OFF THE GROUND! NOAH REIGNER KNOWS HE HAS TO GET ONE OF THEM BACK INSIDE THE RING TO WIN THIS MATCH!!! HE TURNS HIS ATTENTION TO IMPACT AND STARTS TO MAKE HIS WAY OVER TO THE HALL OF FAMER! NOAH PLACES HIS FOOT ON IMPACT’S HEAD AND GRABS THE BARRICADES! HE IS PUSHING IMPACT’S HEAD INTO THE STEEL! NOW HE’S FOLLOWING IT UP WITH MULTIPLE KICKS TO THE FACE! HE GRABS IMPACT BY THE HAIR AND DRAGS HIM TO THE RING!!! NOAH SLAMS IMP’S FACE OFF THE HARDEST PART OF THE RING AND ROLLS HIM INSIDE!!!

James Peters: NOAH PULLS IMPACT BACK UP TO A VERTICAL BASE AND GETS HIM IN POSITION FOR A PILEDRIVER!!!! IMPACT BLOCKS AND SOMEHOW FINDS A WAY TO LIFT NOAH UP! NOAH FLIPS BACKWARDS BUT HE IS ABLE TO ROLL IMPACT UP FROM BEHIND WITH A SCHOOLBOY! NOAH SHOVES IMPACT OVER, GRABS THE ARM AND STEPS OVER, AND HE TRIES TO TRANSITION INTO AN ARMBAR! IMPACT QUICKLY LOCKS HIS HANDS AND FORCES HIMSELF TO HIS KNEES, WHICH PLACES NOAH ON HIS BACK! IMPACT GETS TO HIS FEET WHILE NOAH GETS HIS LEGS UP, BUT IT’S IMPACT WHO SOMEHOW DIGS DEEP AND LIFTS NOAH UP IN THE AIR!!!

Rich Russillo: IMPACT SLAMS NOAH DOWN ONTO THE MAT AND THAT FORCES NOAH TO LET GO! IMPACT GRITS HIS TEETH AND SLAPS AT HIS ARM, TRYING TO GET THE FEELING BACK INTO IT! THAT ARM HAS SUSTAINED SO MUCH DAMAGE HERE TONIGHT. NOAH’S NECK AND BACK HAVE BEEN TARGETED. AND REX’S SHOULDER!

James Peters: All three of these men are extremely intelligent in-ring competitors and in order to survive and win a match like this, you have to pick something apart on your opponent! Right now, Noah Reigner just sat back up! Impact dives forward! FIST OF FURY! A DIVING FIST OF FURY CONNECTS WITH NOAH REIGNER’S FACE! THAT RIGHT-HANDED KO HOOK JUST TOOK THE CHAMPION OUT OF THIS MATCH AND NOW IMPACT IS UP AND GOING FOR THE WALLS OF IMPACT! NOAH REIGNER IS OUT AND THIS IS JUST A FORMALITY!!!! WE’RE GOING TO HAVE A BRAND NEW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION!!!!

Rich Russillo: BUT REX IS SOMEHOW UP AND HE IS CRAWLING BACK INTO THE RING NOW. REX SEES THE REFEREE CHECKING ON NOAH AND HE FINDS HIS SECOND OR WHATEVER NUMBER WE’RE ON WIND! REX TACKLES IMPACT FROM BEHIND AND STARTS PUNCHING HIM IN THE BACK OF THE HEAD!!!!

James Peters: These men have given it their all tonight, and it’s not like this match has been easy. Physically it has taken its toll on all of them! This match has been violent in it’s own right and when you truly look at what these three are doing to one another, it’s a kind of a deathmatc. They are doing whatever they can to wear each other down so someone is forced to submit. Someone is going to have to quit in order for another man to win here tonight.

Rich Rusillo: And it bears repeating, James. This is Pain for Pride. No one wants to lose on a night like this.

James Peters: Rex pulls Impact to his feet and looks to hit him with a right hand! Impact blocks the shot and shoves Rex back, and both of these warriors are staring one another down again! Rex and Impact begin cautiously circling one another, and Rex throws out a kick, just to see what Impact is going to do! Why they want to play a cat and mouse game at this stage of the competition is beyond me, but they are both so fucking good at this.

Rich Russillo: They continue circling one another, and now it’s Impact who throws a kick! It connects with Rex’s thigh, but the former champion isn’t phased! Both men throw a kick now! And both stop in their tracks! When it comes to who is truly better between Rex McAllister and Impact, you could argue for days. Both of them are their own brand and it’s hard to pick one over the other. Impact has the longevity and the body of work backing him. Rex is newer, but so extremely talented, and we can all agree that the best is yet to come from him.

James Peters: Noah Reigner is slowly getting back to his feet now, and that causes Rex and Impact both to avert their eyes towards him. The champion straightens up, and he staggers over to his two challengers. These three have been the staple of Voltage this whole season, and it’s truly fitting that this match involves all three of them. I don’t care how they feel about the accomplishments of the other, all three of them deserve this opportunity.

Rich Russillo: NOAH SPRINGS FORWARD AND LOOKS TO TAKE REX AND IMPACT BOTH DOWN WITH A CLOTHESLINE!

James Peters: REX AND IMP DUCK AND NOAH SPINS AROUND! REX AND IMP GO FOR KICKS BUT NOAH CATCHES THEM BOTH! HE FLIPS IMPACT DOWN, SPINS REX AROUND, AND REX EATS A DROPKICK! IMP GRABS NOAH BY THE FEET AND KNOCKS HIM TO THE MAT! HE LOOKS FOR A FRONT FACELOCK, BUT NOAH SLIPS OUT! REX TAKES IMP BY THE ANKLE AND GETS TO HIS FEET, BUT IMP KICKS REX BACK, AND NOAH CLIPS REX IN THE BACK OF THE KNEE! NOAH GOES FOR REX’S SHOULDER ONCE AGAIN, BUT IMPACT GRABS NOAH FROM BEHIND AND WRAPS HIM IN A HEADLOCK!!! IMPACT AND NOAH BOTH FIGHT THEIR WAY UP TO THE FEET!!! NOAH FIGHTS HIS WAY OUT OF THE HEADLOCK WITH SEVERAL ELBOWS TO IMPACT’S MIDSECTION!!!! IMPACT HAS TO LET GO AND NOAH LOOKS TO BRING IMPACT DOWN WITH A LARIAT!

Rich Russillo: IMPACT DUCKS AND HE GRABS NOAH AROUND THE WAIST FROM BEHIND! NOAH BLOCKS THE GERMAN SUPLEX ATTEMPT AND THROWS AN ELBOW! IMPACT SHRUGS IT OFF AND TRIES AGAIN!!!! NOAH BLOCKS BUT REX IS BACK UP NOW! HE SLIPS BEHIND IMPACT!! THERE IS NO FUCKING WAY!!!!

James Peters: THEY’RE ON THE EDGE OF THE RING RIGHT NOW AND REX GOES FOR A GERMAN ON IMPACT! IMPACT HAS NOAH!! REX JUST GERMAN SUPLEXED IMPACT OUT OF THE RING, WHILE IMPACT DID THE SAME THING TO NOAH, AND ALL THREE MEN JUST WENT FLYING OUT OF THE RING!!! THEY CRASH TO THE FLOOR AND IT’S NOAH WHO LANDS AWKWARDLY ON HIS NECK! REX’S SKULL JUST MET THE BARE FLOOR!!! IMPACT IS HOLDING HIS ARM AGAIN!!!

Rich Russillo: This is a fucking trainwreck.

James Peters: The referee is out of the ring and he is checking on all three of these World Heavyweight Championship competitors.

Rich Russillo: I think Rex might have a concussion because he hit his head pretty hard on that landing. He’s sitting up now and grabbing the back of it, but it doesn’t appear to be busted open. Impact is sitting up as well and he’s trying to return back to his feet. Meanwhile, Noah is being looked at by the referee.

James Peters: Rex and Impact both see what’s going on with Noah at the same time, and that brings them both back to life. Rex forces himself back up. Impact uses the ring apron to pull himself up. It’s Impact who shoves the referee away from Noah and he begins stomping away on the champion’s head and neck! Rex shoves Impact to the side and he takes his turn beating the snot out of Noah! Impact slams his forearm into the back of Rex’s head, and that takes Rex down to his knees! Impact with repeated knee strikes to Rex’s skull now and he grabs Rex! Impact throws Rex head first into the steel ring steps and that allows him to grab Noah and drag him back towards the ring! Impact throws Noah inside and climbs back in as well. Noah is somehow able to get back to his feet. Impact charges forward and looks to connect with a big boot but Noah is actually able to catch Impact’s foot! He drags Impact down to the mat and locks his arm around the back of Impact’s neck!

Rich Russillo: I’m not sure what Noah is looking to do here, but Impact is not allowing him to go for any kind of leg lock. Impact has his legs up in a defensive position, and Noah is attempting to roll Impact over right now. Impact is able to get back to his knees and grabs Noah’s arm, unwrapping it from his neck. Impact and Noah remain locked up as they both get back to their feet! Noah tries to lift Impact up for a suplex, but Impact is able to block it, and he does the same on Noah. Noah keeps his feet planted firmly on the mat and both of these men are stagnant!

James Peters: Impact with a knee to Noah’s mid-section now, and he brings the champion down to the mat with a side suplex! Impact quickly gets his legs wrapped around the torso of Noah Reigner and wraps his good arm around Noah’s neck! HE’S TRYING TO GET NOAH IN A REAR NAKED CHOKE!!!!

Rich Russillo: NOAH GRABS THE INJURED ARM WHICH DOESN’T ALLOW IMPACT TO LOCK IT IN ALL THE WAY! NOAH FIGHTS HIS WAY FREE AND THE REVERSES SO HE IS ON TOP OF IMPACT! IMPACT PUSHES HIM OFF, AND BOTH MEN ROLL TOWARDS THE EDGE OF THE RING! NOAH FINALLY GETS HIMSELF ON TOP AND HE STARTS WAILING AWAY ON IMPACT!!! HOW MUCH ANGER AND FRUSTRATION ARE BEHIND THOSE SHOTS, JAMES?!

James Peters: A LOT! BECAUSE NOAH IS THROWING ALL HE’S GOT LEFT IN THE TANK INTO THOSE STIFF RIGHT HANDS AND HE’S BUSTED IMPACT’S LIP! IMP IS BLEEDING NOW AND NOAH SLAMS HIS FOREHEAD INTO IMP’S! NOAH IS CONTINUING TO HEADBUTT IMPACT AND IMPACT IS TRYING HIS BEST TO FIGHT NOAH OFF!!! NOAH CONTINUES HIS ASSAULT ON THE 8-TIME CHAMPION AND FINALLY HE FALLS BACK! BOTH MEN ARE BUSTED OPEN ON THEIR FOREHEADS NOW!!!!

Rich Russillo: NOAH STAGGERS BACK TO HIS FEET AND HE SCREAMS AT IMPACT TO GET HIS ASS UP! IMPACT IS ON SPAGHETTI LEGS AS HE GETS BACK UP AND AS SOON AS HE STANDS… NOAH RUNS TOWARDS HIM!!!!

James Peters: KILLSHOT ON IMPACT!!!!

Rich Russillo: IMPACT FALLS OUT OF THE RING!!!! NOAH GETS BACK TO HIS FEET AND HE SEES THAT REX IS CRAWLING BACK INTO THE RING! REX ATE A KILLSHOT EARLIER AND NOAH SEEMS PRIMED TO DISH OUT ANOTHER ONE!!! REX IS BACK INSIDE THE RING AND NOAH CHARGES TOWARDS REX!!!!!

James Peters: KILLSHOT TO REX!!!

Rich Russillo: NO!!! REX MOVED AND NOAH’S MOMENTUM TOOK HIM RIGHT OUT OF THE RING!!!! REX IS QUICK TO GRAB NOAH AND HE WHIPS HIM INTO THE RINGPOST!!! NOAH’S BACK SLAMS INTO THE STEEL AND REX BACKS UP, LOWERING HIS HEAD!!!! REX CHARGES!!! HE IS GOING FOR A SPEAR!!!

James Peters: NOAH MOVES!!!!!

Rich Russillo: REX SLAMS SHOULDER FIRST INTO THE RING POST!!!!

James Peters: THE SAME SHOULDER THAT WAS INJURED EARLIER!!! I THINK HE MIGHT HAVE SEPARATED IT!!!

Rich Russillo: NOAH GRABS REX AND HE THROWS HIM INTO THE RING!!! NOAH DOESN’T EVEN HAVE TIME TO THINK RIGHT NOW! HE GRABS REX AND THROWS HIM ON HIS STOMACH!!! NOAH STEPS ON THE BACK OF REX’S LEGS AND HE IS GRABBING BOTH OF REX’S ARMS!!! NOAH WRENCHES THEM BACK AND HE STARTS TO ROCK!!! THE CHAMPION FALLS BACK AND HE LIFTS REX UP IN THE AIR IN A SURFBOARD STYLE SUBMISSION!!! REX JUST LET OUT A STRING OF SWEAR WORDS THAT WOULD MAKE DRAKE KING BLUSH!!!!!

James Peters: REX HAS ALL THAT PRESSURE ON HIS JOINTS NOW AND YOU KNOW WITH THAT SHOULDER ALREADY HURT HE IS IN A LOT OF PAIN NOW! THE REFEREE IS ASKING REX IF HE WANTS TO QUIT, BUT REX IS SHAKING HIS HEAD! THE THEME OF REX’S JOURNEY THIS SEASON HAS BEEN ABOUT REDEMPTION AND YOU’D HATE TO SEE IT END RIGHT HERE IN THIS FASHION! BUT IF REX MCALLISTER WANTS TO LIVE TO FIGHT ANOTHER DAY HE MIGHT NOT HAVE ANY OTHER OPTION!!! NOAH IS SCREAMING AT REX TO GIVE UP BUT THE HEART AND THE SOUL OF REX MCALLISTER IS WINNING OUT RIGHT NOW!!!

Rich Russillo: REX NEEDS TO THINK ABOUT THE FUTURE! THERE WILL BE OTHER WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP OPPORTUNITIES!!! REX HAS PLENTY MORE PAIN FOR PRIDES IN HIS FUTURE!!!

James Peters: REX CONTINUES TO HANG IN THERE AND I DON’T KNOW HOW HE IS DOING IT!!!

Rich Russillo: LOOK HERE, BUB! REX MCALLISTER IS ONE OF THE TOUGHEST MEN IN THIS WHOLE COMPANY!

James Peters: THE REFEREE IS CHECKING ON REX!!! REX CONTINUES TO FIGHT THROUGH ALL THE PAIN AND ALL THE AGONY HE IS FEELING RIGHT NOW!!!! YOU HAVE TO THINK THAT WHATEVER PHYSICAL PAIN HE FEELS RIGHT NOW PALES IN COMPARISON TO WHAT HE FELT LAST YEAR AT PAIN FO-

Rich Russillo: IT’S IMPACT! IMPACT IS BACK IN THE RING! IMPACT WITH A DIVING DOUBLE AXE HANDLE TO REX!!!

James Peters: THE SUBMISSION IS BROKEN AND IMPACT GRABS NOAH!!! IMPACT PULLS NOAH TO HIS FEET AND HE HITS HIM WITH THE ‘EVISCERATION’!!!! NOAH REIGNER IS DOWN!!!! IMPACT GETS BACK UP AND HE GRABS THE CHAMPION UP!!!! IMPACT TAKES NOAH AND HE HITS HIM WITH A SECOND ‘EVISCERATION’!!!!! IMPACT IS A LITTLE SLOWER TO RISE TO HIS FEET THIS TIME BUT ONCE HE DOES, HE GRABS NOAH ONCE AGAIN!!!! IMPACT HAS NOAH REIGNER BY THE FACE AND HE IS YELLING AT HIM! I CAN’T MAKE OUT WHAT IMPACT IS SAYING BUT HE LETS GO OF NOAH… AND HE TAKES HIM OUT WITH A THIRD CONSECUTIVE ‘EVISCERATION’!!!!!!

Rich Russillo: IMPACT GRABS NOAH AND HE IS GOING FOR WALLS OF IMPACT ONE MORE TIME!!!! REX MCALLISTER IS GETTING BACK UP, GRIPPING HIS SHOULDER!!!! REX LOOKS TO NAIL IMPACT IN THE FACE WITH THE KICK, BUT IMPACT LETS GO OF NOAH AND DUCKS!!! REX HAS TO PUT THE BRAKES ON!!! REX TURNS AROUND!!! IMPACT GOES FOR ANOTHER ‘EVISCERATION’!!!!

James Peters: REX SIDESTEPS IT!!! IMPACT HITS THE MAT! REX GRABS IMPACT BY THE ANKLE AND LOOKS FOR A FIGURE FOUR!!!! IMPACT KICKS REX BACK!!!! REX GRABS THE LEG AGAIN AND HE DROPS DOWN! REX GOING FOR THE ‘REX LOCK’ ON IMPACT!!! IF HE LOCKS IN THAT STF… THIS WILL BE OVER!!!!

Rich Russillo: REX HAS IT!!! REX HAS IMPACT TRAPPED!!! IMPACT REACHES OUT BUT THERE’S NOTHING TO GRAB!!! IMPACT IS DIGGING HIS HANDS INTO THE MAT NOW AND HE IS DOING EVERYTHING HE CAN TO CRAWL TOWARDS THE EDGE OF THE RING!!!! IMPACT IS SCRATCHING, FIGHTING, AND CLAWING HIS WAY TO THE EDGE AND BECAUSE OF HIS INJURED SHOULDER, REX CAN’T HANG ON TO THAT MOVE THE WAY HE USUALLY CAN!!!! REX MAKES THE EXECUTIVE DECISION TO LET GO AND IMPACT LUNGES FOR THE APRON!!! HE PULLS HIMSELF FORWARD AND REX IS RIGHT ON HIM!!! REX TRIES TO DRAG IMPACT BACK TOWARDS THE CENTER OF THE RING BUT IMPACT GETS HIMSELF TURNED AROUND AND HE NAILS REX IN THE ABDOMEN WITH A KICK!!!!

James Peters: REX STUMBLES AND IMPACT IS BACK UP!!! IMPACT SWINGS FREELY AND HE CONNECTS WITH THE FIST OF FURY!!!! REX GOES DOWN AND I THINK HE MIGHT BE OUT OF THE COUNT!!! IMPACT SCRAMBLES UP AND HE GOES FOR THE WALLS OF IMPACT!!!! IMPACT LOCKS UP REX BUT WAIT!!!! HOW IN THE FUCK?!

Rich Russillo: NOAH REIGNER IS SOMEHOW STILL ALIVE AFTER THREE CONSECUTIVE EVISCERATIONS!!!! IMPACT LETS GO OF REX AND HE JUST SHAKES HIS HEAD! EVEN HE CAN’T BELIEVE THAT NOAH IS SITTING UP RIGHT NOW!!! NOAH REIGNER IS A CHAMPION THROUGH AND THROUGH YOU CAN NOT DENY THAT THIS YOUNG MAN IS ONE OF THE VERY BEST THIS SPORT HAS EVER SEEN!!!!

BOTH OF THESE MEN HAVE ALREADY BUSTED ONE ANOTHER OPEN!!!! NOAH TURNS TO THE SIDE TO DEFLECT SOME OF THE BLOWS!!!!!

Rich Russillo: THAT GIVES IMPACT AN OPENING!!! IMPACT SHOVES NOAH’S ARMS FORWARD AND HE DROPS HIS CHEST BEHIND NOAH’S SHOULDER BLADE!!! IMPACT BRACES HIMSELF AND USES THE LEVERAGE HE’S GIVEN HIMSELF TO SNEAK HIS ARM UP BETWEEN NOAH’S ARMS!!! HE WRAPS HIS OTHER ARM AROUND NOAH’S HEAD, RIGHT UNDER THE CHIN!!! IMPACT PLANTS HIS LEG ACROSS NOAH’S TORSO AND REACHES BACK, HOOKING NOAH’S LEG!!!! IMPACT PUSHES NOAH’S HEAD AND NECK, AND HIS KNEE FORWARD!!!! THIS IS A VARIATION OF A BOW AND ARROW CHOKE!!!!

Rich Russillo: REX LANDS SHORT!!!!! THE REFEREE SIGNALS THAT NOAH REIGNER IS OUT!!!! HE IS CALLING FOR THE BELL!!!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… HERE IS YOUR WINNER AND THE NEW ELITE ANSWERS WRESTLING WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION… IMPACT!!!!!

(“Can I Live” by Jay-Z begins to blast throughout Mercedes-Benz Stadium and the camera zooms in on what’s going on inside the ring. Two EAW officials have come to the ring and are checking on Noah. The referee has awarded the World Heavyweight Championship to Impact, and a heartbroken Rex McAllister is sitting back, wondering where it all went wrong.)

James Peters: The look on Rex’s face says it all, Rich.

Rich Russillo: It was one hell of a match and neither Noah nor Rex have anything to be ashamed about. They poured their heart and their soul into this ring tonight and left it all out here.

James Peters: Noah Reigner’s championship reign has come to an end, but honestly, it’s just the first of many. There is no denying that he is one of the greatest wrestlers to come along in awhile. A lot of people point their fingers and compare Noah to Jamie O’Hara, and it was last year at this same show where Jamie was defeated by Impact.

Rich Russillo: And a year later, Jamie is the Grand Rampage winner and fighting for the Answers World Championship. Noah Reigner is going to bounce back, and I can’t wait to see what he does next. But if there was ever any doubt about Noah Reigner belonging in EAW, he more than proved his worth tonight.

James Peters: Noah Reigner is a future Hall of Famer.

Rich Russillo: And he is one hell of a fucking wrestler.

(The EAW officials help Noah from the ring but the now former champion shrugs them off. He refuses to be helped out of Pain for Pride. He is going to walk up the ramp under his own power.)

James Peters: Rex McAllister is going to get his Pain for Pride moment one day, Rich. The man is the most dedicated Elitist in this company, and he is our standard bearer. Rex is the person every up and coming wrestler should look at and take notes from. That man is brilliant inside the ring and I know that Season 13 is going to be incredible for him.

Rich Russillo: There is no one in this company like Rex McAllister. I feel lucky that I’ve gotten to call a lot of his matches.

(Impact turns to Rex and holds the World Heavyweight Championship up in the air. Rex schools his features, rolls out of the ring, and begins to make his way up the ramp. Halfway up the ramp, and as the fans give him a standing ovation, Rex turns and looks up at the giant Pain for Pride sign. Once again, the moment didn’t happen for him, but a look of determination flickers across his face.)

Rex McAllister (Off Mic): Next year.

(The camera cuts back to the ring where Impact is posing with his championship.)

James Peters: As far as the new World Heavyweight Champion goes, what can we really say? Impact continues to withstand the test of time. He breaks his own record for the most world championships ever, and he continues to prove that he is the best in the world at this.

Rich Russillo: There’s no denying this man’s legacy, and for lack of a better term, impact, on this sport. Regardless of what people say, he adapts to all the changes flawlessly. When you’re good, you’re good. But this man is legitimately great.

James Peters: The more people criticize and knock Impact, the harder he comes firing back at his critics. Impact was in his element this week, and I can’t wait to see what he does as our brand new World Heavyweight Champion.

(Impact has taken his leave from the ring and is making his way up the ramp. He’s battered, broken, bloodied, and his arm is clearly injured. But if there’s one thing that no one inside the building can deny is that the legendary Impact fought a war on this night and survived. For someone who has nothing to prove and nothing left to do in the sport of professional wrestling, Impact didn’t hesitate to spill his blood inside the ring and pour his heart into his performance.)

(Impact makes it to the top of the stage and holds the World Heavyweight Championship up in the air.)

Impact (Off Mic): #NineFuckinReignz

(#VoltageKings)

(The camera takes one last shot of Impact before fading to the backstage area.)

( Camera opens up backstage to a general dressing room, where EAW Elitists from Showdown, Dynasty and Voltage are able to gather, congregate, get dressed and prepare for their matches. Lockers line the walls, there are benches, and open bathrooms. A section shows multiple Elitists gathered around, lifting weights, blending protein shakes and watching Pain for Pride on the flatscreen. )

( In one area of the dressing room we see Ronan Malosi and Desmond Black sharing a punching bag, letting off some strikes before their 24/7 match. Korey Gaines approaches both men, wearing a towel around his waist fresh out of the sauna, bearing a chipper smile on his face. )

Korey Gaines: Well well! Aren’t we getting getting fired up before the big one? You boys prepared out there? I don’t intend on showing any mercy.

( Gaines is ignored by the two monster Elitists. )

Korey Gaines: Ahh I get it, saving it all for the ring. I dig the competitive fire. Not sure if it’s going to be enough sadly, you lot are just too wet behind the ears to hack it. I’m the man who’s going to earn the 24/7 contract and go on to compete for any title of my chosing, at any time.

( Desmond removes ear buds while Ronan Malosi is teeing off on the punching bag. )

???: You sure it’s going to be a man who does it?

( Darcy May Morgan and Miho Li approach Korey, Ronan and Desmond. )

Darcy May Morgan: Because methinks it’s gonna be a woman who wins the contract this year. I’m even more confident that I’ll be just the woman to do it.

Korey Gaines: Hey ladies not sure if you’re even supposed to be in here! Pretty sure there’s a womens locker room with your name on it.

Miho Li: (under her breath) I’m surprised you’re not trying to creep your way into there.

Korey Gaines: Huh?

Miho Li: Oh nothing.

Ronan Malosi: (interrupting his punches) If you people are looking for your set you’re gonna have to wait your bloody turn!

( Ronan and Desmond go back to pounding away at the punching bag. )

Darcy May Morgan: What’s his problem?

Korey Gaines: I think these guys are just high strung, the nerves hit everyone different.

Miho Li: I think that guy just needs a vacation. Preferrably one starting before the match. Like great 21st century poet Nicki Minaj once said, ♪ Take your medication Ronan, take a short vacation Ronan, you’ll be okayyyyyyyy! ♪

Darcy May Morgan: :snoop: The song says Roman, not Ronan.

???: AH WHAT THE FUCK?!

( Ronan Malosi accidently tags Desmond Black while he’s standing across the punching bag. )

Desmond Black: FUCK’S YOUR BLOODY DEAL?

Ronan Malosi: What’re you doing so fucking close to the damned thing?

( Desmond Black SHOVES Ronan Malosi back, sending him crashing into Gaines, and sending Gaines nearly flying in between Darcy and Miho. Desmond Black and Ronan Malosi engage in a chaotic brawl, sending punches flying and forcing other members of the EAW locker room to break it up. The scene becomes more chaotic as members of the 24/7 Battle Royal begin to take cheap jabs at each other, and backstage officials, road agents and referees pile in deescelate the situation. )

( Broadcast returns to the Mercedes Benz Stadium. )

Gina Romano: THE NEXT CONTEST IS SCHEDULED FOR…

Crowd: ONE FALL!!!!

Gina Romano: AND IS FOR THE NEW BREED CHAMPIONSHIP!!! Introducing first, the challenger…

(“I’m So Humble” by The Lonely Island plays as the lights dim everywhere in the arena except for the entrance. As the music continues to play and the lights turn a mix of baby pink and red. Felix Hartley walks out onto the ram, dawned in a full length gold fur coat as she’s met with a mix of cheers and boos. )

Deadprez: She’s dripped in gold and is looking to cap off her Instagram model curves with a gold belt around her waist!

Gina Romano: MAKING HER WAY TO THE RING…FROM LAS VEGAS, NEVADA…WEIGHING IN AT 114 POUNDS!!! “Ass, Class, and Sass”…FEEEELIX HAAAARTLEY!!!

Eve: This young woman has made plenty of enemies and dividing the EAW audience ever since her debut months ago! One enemy in particular is Serena Bennett, current number one contender to Sienna Jade’s World title! Bad blood is abundant and it has leaked over to this New Breed title match as Felix challenges Serena Bennett’s boyfriend for his belt!

(Felix stands still, her hands fidgeting with the opening of her jacket as she seductively mouths the lyrics to her theme song. She walks down the ramp slowly, one foot in front of the other playing to the camera and ignoring the fans on either side of her.)

Deadprez: Felix wanted to be the one to take that Specialists title from Serena but that wasn’t meant to be. What is meant to be is her chance to make history and take that New Breed title off SOSA here at Pain for Pride!

(Felix flips her long locks and twirls around as she approaches the apron. She slaps the apron twice before giving another wink to the camera following her)

Deadprez: Shout out Kendrick Lamar…

(She climbs up the stairs and stands in the middle of the apron, slowly removing her fur. Tossing it aside, she bends down, slowly running her hands up her legs and flips her hair, a grin plastered across her perfectly bronzed face. She climbs into the ring and taunts the fans before hanging over the top rope, giving the fans a clear view down her top. Felix rolls her eyes and mouths “boy, bye” to everyone before fixing her hair and heading to her own corner. Felix’s music begins to fade.)

Gina Romano: AND THE CHAMPION!!!

(“Faneto” by Chief Keef begins to play. Out comes the one and only Chief Keef himself as he swings his long dreads around and clutches a microphone in his hand.)

Chief Keef: I’m a gorilla in a fuckin’ coupe, finna pull up to the zoo, nigga
Who, nigga? Who the fuck is you? I don’t know, nigga
No, nigga, pull up on yo block, we gon’ blow, nigga
Go, nigga, run, nigga, run for the po’, nigga (police, nigga

(The thunderous bass from the 808s has the entire arena rocking as fans cheer and boo the arrival of the New Breed Champ. Out walks SOSA Henderson, wearing all black everything. Black leather jacket black leather gloves, black sunglasses, and the only thing not black is the plethora of chains around his neck and the gold of the New Breed title shimmering in the lights.)

Chief Keef: Gas what I smoke, nigga (nigga smoke)
Feds at my door, jump out the window, nigga (the window)
No, you can’t get no money, silly HOE (silly HOE)
I just hit a stain, faneto (faneto)

Gina Romano: HAILING FROM PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA…WEIGHING IN AT 191 pounds…THE KING OF PHILLY…THE NEW BREED MAJESTY…SOOOSAAAA HEEENNNDEEERSON!!!

(SOSA begins to turn up, as his music bangs harder than normal in this building. Chief Keef remains in the stage dancing as SOSA walks down to the ring. Henderson quickly sprints under the bottom rope and rolls on his back before kipping up and landing on his feet. SOSA turns his head and stares at his challenger. He removes his belt and raises it high as Keef continues rapping)

Chief Keef: TRY AND TAKE MY CHAIN, I AIN’T GOIN’

Deadprez: The New Breed champ is here! And it looks like he ain’t going anywhere! His cocky demeanor is dismissed by many but everyone who is objective can see SOSA is not only one of the best newcomers in EAW but he is without a doubt a star on the rise!

Eve: he’s passed “on the rise” status. Look at the confidence! SOSA is a star right now! But is Felix the challenger to dethrone our New Breed Majesty?

Deadprez: If there is anybody I would bet on it’s SOSA. But Felix has already stated she’s going to do whatever it takes to get that title off him.

Eve: SOSA has shown he also is willing to do whatever he needs to retain his belt. He defeated The Visual Prophet at Grand Rampage, he defended his title in a match against Korey Gaines, and used Giovanni Luciano’s own brass knuckles on him at Gateway to Glory!

Deadprez: Can he survive another title defense? Can he leave Pain for Pride still champion? That’s the test for Henderson!

DING! DING!

Deadprez: SOSA Henderson won this New Breed Championship back at Grand Rampage in a hellacious steel cage match against The Visual Prophet. Ever since then, SOSA has been running the New Breed Division with no sight of losing it until he ran in to Felix!

Eve: Felix Hartley is a lot of things to a lot of people. Some look down at her promiscuous perception and unapologetic demeanor while some look at her as a free spirit who sees what she wants and gets what she wants. Well, SOSA’s New Breed Championship is what she sees and wants tonight! Regardless of what people think about her personally, in that ring she is one of the best in this business, Prez!

Deadprez: We will see if being one of the best can help catapult her to being New Breed Champion as SOSA and Felix lock up in the middle of the ring. Felix maneuvers her way behind SOSA and wraps her arms around his waist. Henderson underhooks her right arm and arm drags her from behind him to the ground in front of him. Felix gets to her feet and is met with a solid dropkick from Henderson to the shoulder. Felix rolls backwards and gets back to her feet as does SOSA.

Eve: Henderson charged Felix who…rolls out of the ring!

Deadprez: SOSA chases her! SOSA slides right under the rope and is behind Felix but she isn’t privy to it!

Eve: Felix is standing ringside fixing her hair as the referee begins counting!

Ref: ONE!!! TWO!!! THREE!!!

Deadprez: SOSA is mocking Felix from behind, mimicking her playing in her hair! Hartley laughs at the crowd and turns-

Eve: BAM! Hard right hand right to the jaw! SOSA has Felix dazed and confused! Henderson hooks her ringside.

Ref: FOUR!!! FIVE!!!

Deadprez: SNAP SUPLEX! Right on to her back! SOSA gets up and looks down at Felix rolling on the floor in agony!

Ref: SIX!!! SEVEN!!!

Eve: SOSA grabs Felix by her hair and gets her up! He rolls the challenger in via the bottom rope. Henderson climbs onto the apron as Felix lays on her back in the ring. Henderson places both hands on the top rope, he leaps and springboards from the apron to inside the ring…DOUBLE FOOT STOMP RIGHT ON TO FELIX CHEST!

Deadprez: SOSA nearly crushes those implants flat and he drops down for a cover!

Ref: ONE!!!

TWO!!!

NO!!!

Deadprez: SOSA went for an early ending but Felix was quick like a cat and reached out and grabbed the ropes for a pin break!

Eve: Felix isn’t starting off the match with the right intensity and SOSA is capitalizing on that. Henderson drags Felix up by her hair and scoops her back to her feet. SOSA isn’t normally the bigger person in his matches but he has the height and weight advantage against Hartley here at Pain for Pride.

Deadprez: That’s right, SOSA has mainly a striker/high flyer style to his offense but we may see him try and over power Felix and take her out of her element. SOSA has Felix up in a scoop slam position and he-

Eve: FELIX REVERSES THE SCOOP SLAM IN TO A SCHOOL BOY!

Ref: ONE!!!

TW-NO!!!

Deadprez: Felix is thrown away from SOSA who kicks out quickly. Hartley maneuvers behind SOSA as they both get to their feet. Henderson turns sensing Felix coming and catches her foot as she goes for a kick to the gut.

Eve: STEP UP ENZIGURI BY FELIX HARTLEY! That kick cracks SOSA on the side of the head but he stays on his feet. Hartley rushes to her feet and runs to the ropes and bounces off furiously. She charges…CARTWHEEL KICK TO THE FACE AS SOSA FALLS BACKWARDS!

Deadprez: Felix looks down and sees SOSA holding his jaw as he was caught off guard by both of those kicks to the head. Felix apparently doesn’t even like wrestling but when she turns it on she is one of the better talents.

Eve: Let’s not get started talking about Felix Hartley and “turning on” anything, please! Hartley waits as SOSA begins to stir. Henderson sits up and shakes off the damage from those stiff kicks but isn’t quick enough to react as Hartley charges from the ropes once again.

Deadprez: HERE SHE COMES AS SHE FLOATS IN THE AIR…HESITATION DROPKICK RIGHT TO THE JAW!

Eve: SOSA’s arms fly back as he lands flat on the mat again! Felix goes for another cover!

Ref: ONE!!

TWO!!

NOOOO!!!

Deadprez: Henderson powers out and easily pushes out the pin attempt! Felix normally is the taller competitor in her matches on Empire but she’s using speed to keep SOSA off his feet!

Eve: That can be a dangerous route because we know SOSA is one of the most athletically gifted talents in all of professional wrestling!

Deadprez: :mjpls: Yeah…

Eve: Henderson tries to get up but receives several stomps to the face by Felix who wants to keep him down. Hartley throws a kick by SOSA grabs her left leg with one hand. HARTLEY GOES FOR ANOTHER STEP UP ENZIGURI!

Deadprez: NO! SOSA ducks this time and Felix flops to the ground face first! Henderson keeps a grip on her leg and now has both hands on her ankle! Henderson lifts Hartley’s leg high in the air and lifts her whole body up! KNEE SMASH! SOSA slams Hartley’s knee right in to the mat as Felix screams in agony! SOSA gives a nod of satisfying delight as he looks down at Felix clutching that knee!

Eve: SOSA himself knows what it’s like to have a hurt leg during a title match. In his title defense at Gateway to Glory where he defeated Giovanni Luciano, SOSA fought with an injured leg but it took a whole lot of heart for him to survive that fight. Looks like the champ is learning with every defense!

Deadprez: Felix is learning as well that SOSA isn’t anyone to play with. Hartley has real hatred for Serena Bennett who SOSA Henderson is dating and SOSA isn’t going to let her get away with the disrespect especially with his New Breed Championship also apart of the equation!

Eve: SOSA circles Hartley who screams at the referee for allowing Henderson to target her knee like that. The ref shrugs his shoulders as SOSA hadn’t done anything illegal. SOSA is on Felix left side as they are in the middle of the ring. Felix gets to one knee as she rubs it with both hands. SOSA sees his chance and charges…

Deadprez: SINGLE LEG DROPKICK FROM THE NEW BREED MAJESTY! Henderson catches Felix in the jaw this time as Hartley goes from having a hurt knee to having a hurt jaw AND knee now! SOSA gets up and rolls Felix over to her side. STIFF KICK TO THE BACK! SOSA watches as Hartley rolls around the mat in severe pain. Henderson circles the challenger and watches as she gets on all four and crawls for the ropes. SOSA reaches in his trunks…he…pulls out…

Eve: SOSA has what looks like…five dollars in ones in his hand! SOSA takes the money…he throws it at Felix who is crawling away from him! Henderson tilts his head, staring at his next target as he smirks at the crowd who is loving this! SOSA backs up, now standing like an NFL kicker as Felix butt is facing him! Felix gets one hand on the middle rope, then another, and she is making her way to her feet…

Deadprez: BAM!!!

Eve: SOSA PUNTS FELIX HARTLEY’S ASS AND SHE FLIES OUT OF THE RING VIA THE MIDDLE ROPE!

Deadprez: Henderson puts his hand over his forehead and pretends he really kicked a field goal as Hartley tumbles our the ring and back to the ring side floor!

Eve: Ass, Class, and Sass just got kicked to the curb like a football!

Ref: ONE!! TWO!!

Deadprez: Right to the money maker! SOSA looks amused at that as does the EAW fans here in Atlanta, Georgia! SOSA turned Pain for Pride XII in to King of Diamonds after that money throw. Then he literally kicks Felix ass out of the ring!

Ref: THREE!! FOUR!!

Eve: Listen to this crowd!

Crowd: SOSA!! SOSA!! SOSA!!

Deadprez: SOSA is eating this up as Felix gets to her feet and faces a few fans laughing at her. She rubs her ass and gives the finger to one particular fat man enjoying this exchange a lot. Felix shakes off that abuse and turns around…SOSA COMES FLYING FROM OVER THE TOP ROPE INSIDE THE RING TO THE OUTSIDE! OVER THE TOP ROPE MOONSAULT PLANCHA TO FELIX HARTLEY!

Eve: SOSA lands stomach first on to the shoulders of Felix as his weight drives her back down to the ringside floor! SOSA definitely is going to feel some of that too as he’s lands awkwardly but…NOPE! SOSA hope up charged and ready for more as he roars!

Deadprez: Serena Bennett is somewhere watching this and seeing motivation I bet! Watching SOSA dominating one of her rivals has to be a sight to see!

Ref: ONE!!! TWO!!!

Eve: The referee resets his count as SOSA pulls Felix up off the ground. He lifts her body up and slides her on to the apron, shoving her in to the ring.

Deadprez: It’s like we noted earlier, going speed for speed with SOSA is one many opponents can’t afford to do and Felix had a few glimpses of life early but now it’s all Henderson as the champ climbs up the ring apron. Henderson is stalking Felix who looks lost in the middle of the ring. He’s moving up and down the apron slowly, waiting for his chance to strike as Felix gets to one knee with her back facing him.

Eve: Felix slowly gets up to her own two feet as the crowd is stirring at Henderson waiting for his moment to attack! He leaps!

Deadprez: SPRINGBOARD DROPKICK SENDS FELIX FLYING!

Eve: SOSA has the challenger reeling as she flies backwards onto her back again! Henderson hops back up and looks down at her then towards the turnbuckle! Felix is clutching her chest.

Deadprez: :mjpls: might be some leakage, Eve.

Eve: …SOSA sprints to the turnbuckle and begins to climb it! He might be looking to finish this match right now! Henderson looks down as Felix is on the mat holding her chest in complete pain as he leaps as high as he possibly can in to the air!

Deadprez: PAID IN FULL!!!

Eve: NO!!! FELIX ROLLS OUT THE WAY AND ON TK THE RING APRON AS SOSA LANDS ON HIS FEET!

Deadprez: Henderson misses what could have been a match ending maneuver! We have seen Henderson end a lot of high profile bouts with that flying double foot stomp! Felix is trying to catch her breath as she climbs the apron still clutching her chest. SOSA shakes his head and stomps towards her. Felix gets to her feet and BAM! Solid elbow shots from Henderson to Hartley’s head! Felix is in a bad ways as-

Eve: WAIT! FELIX GRABS SOSA BY HIS HAIR! SHE LEAPS BACKWARDS OFF THE APRON! SHE IS CHOKING SOSA WITH THE TOP ROPE! FELIX IS CLUTCHING SOSA HENDERSON’S HAIR AND HANGING OFF THE RING WITH HER FEET DANGLING AS HENDERSON’S NECK IS BEING PULLED WITH THE ENTIRE WEIGHT OF FELIX ON TO THAT TOP ROPE!

Deadprez: MY GOD! THE REF IS DEMANDING SHE LET GO IMMEDIATELY! I DONT THINK IVE EVER SEEN ANYTHING LIKE THIS! FELIX FINALLY RELENTS AND LANDS ON HER FEET OUTSIDE THE RING AS SOSA’S HEAD FLINGS BACKWARDS FROM THE SPRING OF THE RING ROPE!

Eve: She latched on to the dreads in SOSA’s hair and pulled him neck first over the rope and hung in the air like she was on the monkey bars as she choked him until he began to turn purple! SOSA is gasping for air, holding his throat!

(Felix slides in under the bottom rope, now stalking SOSA.)

Eve: Felix just turned the tide with that dirty but necessary move!

Deadprez: Henderson is still trying to catch his breath as Felix is waiting for her opportunity now! SOSA turns around and Felix charges!

Eve: ASS, CLASS, AND SASS!!! FELIX HITS HER PATENTED TILT-A-WHIRL HEADSCISSORS AND SNAPS SOSA’S NECK WITH HER LEGS AROUND AS HE GOES FLYING!

Deadprez: THE CHAMP IS DOWN! THE CHAMP IS DOWN!

Eve: FELIX FLIES OVER TO HIS BODY AS HE LAID FLAT OUT AND COVERS FOR ANOTHER COVER!

Ref: ONE!!!!

TWO!!!!

THREE!!!

NOOOOOOOOOO!

Deadprez: Even that is not enough! The champ fights out of it at the very last second! Felix looked like she was ready to take that New Breed title with her to the next rapper album release party but it wasn’t meant to be as Henderson shows his champion like heart once again!

Eve: Felix pouts as she truly believed she had Henderson dead to rights with that combination. She runs her fingers through her colorful hair and slaps her thighs before getting up to her feet. She grabs SOSA by the wrist and ankle and drags him closer to a nearby corner. Felix wipes her hands off on the turnbuckle pad before looking back down at Henderson and then back to the turnbuckle.

Deadprez: Hartley begins her ascension up the turnbuckle! She is standing tall and staring at the record breaking Mercedes Benz arena attendance who all are booing her relentlessly. She points at the crowd and then tells them…She tells everyone to kiss her ass!

Eve: Gavin Kirkland is probably foaming at the mouth at that!

Gavin Kirkland: YKTV.

Deadprez: Felix jumps straight up and spreads her legs

Gavin Kirkland: :noah:

Deadprez: She lands both legs on the turnbuckle ropes and SPLIT LEGGED MOONSAULT ON TO SOSA HENDERSON! SHE SPLASHES RIGHT IN TO HIS STOMACH AS SOSA INVOLUNTARY KICKS HIS LEGS UP AFTER THE IMPACT!

Eve: Felix isn’t heavy but 114 pounds slamming right in to your stomach while you are defenseless hurts like hell!

Deadprez: Felix rolls to her knees, hooks SOSA’s legs, and goes for another cover!

Ref: ONE!!!

TWO!!!

NO!!!

Eve: SOSA gets his hand on the bottom rope nearby as the ref breaks up the pin attempt! SOSA is so savvy and Felix is looking pissed off.

Deadprez: She has to stay focused if she wants to beat a champion like Henderson!

Eve: SOSA is in a world of pain as Felix gets to her feet. She begins stomping away at his midsection and upper torso before backing away and walking all the way to the opposite corner. Henderson uses the ring ropes to get off the mat and on to his knees. SOSA keeps leveraging the ring ropes until he is on his own feet but he is now laid up against the turnbuckle holding his neck and stomach. Felix looks charged up as she sprints like a bolt right back at SOSA. She leaps!

Deadprez: BUSAIKU KNEE KICK!!!

Eve: NO!!!!

Deadprez: SOSA moves out the way at the last second! Felix goes knee first into the top turnbuckle as she crashes right after! That’s the same knee SOSA attacked earlier in the match! She’s favoring that knee! This looks a lot like the same knee issue SOSA himself had at Gateway to Glory against Giovanni! Felix is holding it as Henderson crawls away and uses the ropes again to get up. The ref goes to check on Felix who shoves him away…

Felix Hartley: GET THE FUCK OUT THE WAY YOU PERVERT!

Eve: Felix has to be careful with how she treats officials, Prez! Hartley gets to her feet and waves the referee away. She is limping a bit as she turns looking for Henderson. She might be frustrated that the match isn’t over yet fighting the referee won’t get her that New Breed championship. She can’t afford to get all riled up and…

Deadprez: SOSA WITH THE SPEAR! SOSA COMES FLYING IN FROM THE CORNER WITH A SPEAR THAT TURNS FELIX INSIDE OUT!

Eve: The champion is known to pull that spear out at desperate times and that was a desperate time for him!

Deadprez: SOSA gets to his knees as he looks over at Felix in the fetal position checking to see if her ribs weren’t broken. SOSA slowly gets to his feet and waves his hands a bit, now mocking Felix for her signature taunts as the crowd laughs!

Eve: SOSA is a mixture of cocky and confident and who can blame him? He’s dating possibly the next Women’s world champion and is a champion himself! But, he has to finish Felix off in order for Serena and him to really cap off this Pain for Pride properly!

Deadprez: SOSA grabs Felix by the back of her head as she looks out of it. He gets her up and to her feet as he bends her over and puts her in position for what may be a Piledriver! NO! SOSA LIFTS HER UP AND HAS HE IN PRIME POSITION FOR A POWER BOMB!

Eve: NO!

Deadprez: Henderson doesn’t have her like he wants and Felix hops over his head and lands behind him! SOSA turns around-

Eve: THROAT PUNCH! RIGHT TO THAT INJURED THROAT! SOSA IS COUGHING HYSTERICALLY AS HE CLUTCHES HIS NECK!

Deadprez: Felix has targeted the larynx and hits a timely throat punch to stop SOSA in his tracks!

Eve: KICK TO THE GUT, SHE HAS HIM IN HER OWN PILEDRIVER POSITION!

Deadprez: SHE FLIPS HIM OVER AS THEY BOTH SOAR!

Eve: THE ME TOO MOVEMENT CONNECTS!!! THE CANADIAN PILEDRIVER CONNECTS AS FELIX FOLDS SOSA UP LIKE AN ACCORDION ON THAT DAMAGED NECK OF HIS!

Deadprez: ITS OVER! NEW CHAMP! FELIX IS PULLING OUT THE BIG GUNS!

Eve: FELIX COLLAPSE AS DOES SOSA AND BOTH COMPETITORS ARE DOWN!

Deadprez: FELIX ROLLS AROUND ON THE MAT, CRAWLING AND SCRATCHING TO MAKE HER WAY TO SOSA! SOSA IS SLOWLY ROLLING AS WELL BUT AWAY FROM HER! SOSA IS NEAR THE ROPES AS FELIX GRABS HIM WITH ONE HAND AND DESPERATELY TRIES TO PULL HIM BACK AWAY FROM THE ROPES!

Eve: FELIX USES BOTH HANDS NOW AND STRUGGLES BUT…SHE ROLLS HIM AWAY FROM THE ROPES! SHE HOOKS THE LEG!!!

Ref: ONE!!!!

Deadprez: THIS IS IT!

Ref: TWO!!!!

Eve: NEW CHAMP! NOBODY KICKS OUT OF THAT MANEUVER!!!!!

Ref: THREE!!!!

Ref: NO!!!

Deadprez: MY GOD! SOSA STRETCHED HIS FREE LEG OUT AND JUST BARELY GETS A TOE OR TO ON TO THAT BOTTOM ROPE! THE CHAMP SURVIVES THAT DEVASTATING CANADIAN DESTROYER!

Eve: Felix looks distraught! She pulled out the ultimate move in her weaponry and SOSA still manages to keep fighting! That neck is in a terrible shape after being choked with that too rope, then her perfected tilt-a-whirl head scissors, followed by a timely throat punch, and then the ultimate finishing move!

Deadprez: That Canadian destroyer she just hit would end the careers of lesser talent! SOSA likely wasn’t kicking out of that but he didn’t have to since he managed to get his foot on that bottom rope!

Eve: Henderson now rolls away from Felix who gets away from him and sits down inside the ring, with the most shock look on her face that I’ve ever seen from her.

Deadprez: I mean, Hartley looks like a woman who was sure she was about to become New Breed Champion but she can’t sit and wait for SOSA to catch his breath! Felix has to keep fighting or else…

Eve: SOSA begins to climb up as he is now positioned on the ring apron. Felix sees this and struggled but eventually gets back up and approaches him.

Deadprez: BAM! SOSA hits Felix with a shoulder through the middle ropes as she hangs on to the top rope with her left hand. Felix tries to counter with an elbow to SOSA over the top rope but he blocks it with his off hand. CRACK!! STIFF RIGHT HAND TO THE JAW ROCKS FELIX HARTLEY!!!

Eve: SOSA quickly grabs Felix signature hair and wraps his whole hand with it as she is falling away! Felix looks to be falling face first but stops midway and begins screaming as the pain of SOSA pulling her hair has her howling!

Deadprez: The fans roar as Felix does almost a Michael Jackson in Smooth Criminal forward lean with the only thing keeping her from falling forward is SOSA’s hand tangled in her hair! SOSA has his hand over the top rope and slowly leans back and begins pulling Felix backwards until the back of her neck is leaning against the ropes! He lets go of her hair and wraps his arms around her head!

Eve: NECKBREAKER! SOSA HITS A NECKBREAKER AS FELIX NECK BOUNCES OFF THE ROPES AND HENDERSON LANDS BUTT FIRST ON THE RING APRON!

Deadprez: SOSA is back in control as he sits on the apron staring off into the crowd going crazy! SOSA turns his head to check on Felix who is rolling around the ring trying to make sure her neck wasn’t actually broken!

Eve: Henderson hops off the apron and walks over to the table and grabs his New Breed title! SOSA picks it up and gives it a huge kiss before putting it back down and walking back to the ring!

Deadprez: Felix gets to one knee and as the referee checks on her to see if she can still compete! SOSA begins to confidently climb the apron and measure himself and the distance to Felix who is in the middle of the ring telling the ref of SOSA’s actions! Felix looks at the tron and at the ref and gets back to her feet as SOSA jumps off the apron and back on to the ropes feet first. SOSA soars like a Philadelphian Eagle and hits it!

Eve: SPRINGBOARD DROPKICK!!!

Deadprez: TO THE REFEREE!!!

Eve: Hartley drags the referee in her place as SOSA kicks the poor official half way across the ring and on to his face! Hartley slithers away to a nearby corner as SOSA runs over and checks on the referee! Henderson shakes the official, he’s turning him but the ref looks out of it! Felix is holding her neck and shaking her leg as she stands up opposite SOSA! Henderson realizes Felix was plotting and gets up and turns around!

Deadprez: LOW BLOW! LOW BLOW! LOW BLOW!!!

Eve: Felix hits a sick low blow kick to the groin of the champ as it lifts him off the ground a few inches and sends him crashing to the mat on his knees! Felix quickly snatches SOSA back up and puts him in position again! Piledriver position! She looks like she’s going for another-

Deadprez: NO! SOSA REVERSES IT AND SHOVES FELIX OUT OF THE RING AND ON TO THE APRON! SOSA FOLLOWS HER AND GIVES HER A MEAN RIGHT HOOK TO THE FACE AS SHE FALLS BACKWARDS ON THE APRON!

Eve: Felix uses the top rope to pull herself up and slaps the snot out of Henderson! Both competitors are trading blows as the referee slowly tries to wake up!

Deadprez: SOSA hits a punch followed by Felix hitting her own slap! Both go back and forth as the crowd is going nuts! They both grab a hold of the apron with one hand and swing with the other! Felix CRACKS SOSA in the face with a stiff elbow as he takes a few steps back in the apron befor-

Eve: SUPERKICK! SOSA HITS A SUPERKICK! FELIX IS OUT ON HER FEET!

Deadprez: Henderson hoists the challenger up on to his shoulders! DEATH VALLEY DRIVER ON TO THE APRON!

Eve: NO! FELIX ELBOWS SOSA RIGHT ON THE CHIN! ANOTHER ELBOW! ANOTHER ELBOW!

Deadprez: SOSA DROPS FELIX ON HER FEET ON THE APRON! THE REF IS SLOWLY GETTING UP AND FELIX SEES THIS!

Eve: ANOTHER SWIFT KICK TO THE GONADS! ANOTHER LOW BLOW FROM FELIX TO THE CHAMP AS SOSA BENDS FORWARD CLUTCHING HIS MAJESTIES!

Deadprez: FELIX GETS HIM IN POSITION…

Eve: MY GAAAAWD!

Deadprez: ME TOO MOVEMENT ON THE APRON!!!!! CANADIAN DESTROYER ON THE RING APRON! SOSA LANDS RIGHT ON HIS NECK!!! FELIX COLLAPSES ON THE APRON AND ROLLS IN THE RING!!!

Eve: SOSA IS OUT!!! FELIX DRAGS HIM IN FROM THE RING APRON! THE REFEREE IS BACK UP AND SHAKING HIS HEAD TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT HAS HAPPENED! FELIX ROLLS SOSA ALL THE WAY TO THE CENTER OF THE RING!!!!

Deadprez: SHE HOOKS BOTH LEGS AND GOES FOR THE COVER!!

Ref: ONE!!!

Deadprez: NEW CHAMP!!

TWO!!!!!

Eve: IS SOSA MOVING?!?

THREE!!!!!

Eve: …!

Deadprez: …

DING!! DING!! DING!!

(The Lonely Island’s “I’m So Humble” blasts out the Mercedes Benz arena speakers as the entire crowd begins to boo.)

Gina Romano: HERE IS YOUR WINNER…

(Felix gets to her feet as sweat and tears cover her face.)

Gina Romano: AND THE NEEEEEEEW NEW BREED CHAMPION!!!

(The referee is handed the belt as he fans keep booing Hartley who wipes her entire face and shakes off the emotions of the moment. She sees the belt coming and quickly snatches away and twirls with it close to her chest as the referee reaches for her wrist.)

Gina Romano: FEEEEEEEEEEEEELIIIXXX HAAAAAAAAAARTLEEEEEEEEEEY!!!!!

Eve: She did it! SHE’S THE NEW BREED STALLION!!!!

Deadprez: She took a dirty route but she got it done! She said she needed this win, she needed this title and she got it!

Eve: SOSA has been an incredible New Breed champion up until this point and was spectacular in this match up! He was dominant throughout and not only was overpowering at times but easily was quicker than Felix! But Hartley was scrappy, crafty, and pulled out all the stops!

Deadprez: She targeted the neck area of SOSA and kept going back at it and might have ended this match sooner if SOSA didn’t reach those ropes after the first Me Too Movement Felix hit! But, that one she hit on that ring apron after low blowing the former champ for the second time was just too much!

Eve: SOSA was dominating and humiliating Felix at times and even threw money at her like a stripper and field goal kicked her ass out of the ring. I know Serena Bennett was having a big laugh at Felix’s expense at that! Alas, we now see who gets the last laugh in the end! SOSA tried but he just made couldn’t slut shame the Stallion! There is a new champ in EAW! And her name is Felix Hartley!

(Felix catches her breath as SOSA rolls out of the ring still clutching his groin and his neck at the same time. Felix blows a kiss to the haters and gives a big wink as she raises her newly won title for all to see.)

(Pain for Pride fades to a brief commercial break.)

(Commercial break for the break for Mr. DEDEDE’s best selling book! GAWDVERBS: A MACHIAVELLIAN GUIDE TO UN-FUCKING YOURSELF is now available on all platforms.)

(Pain for Pride fades back to the ringside area. Voltage’s flawless Bella stands in the center of the ring all smiles while she is heckled by whistles from lust-driven basement dwellers in the crowd.)

Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen, the following contest is scheduled for…… ONE FALL!

Crowd: ONE FALL!

(“Shook Ones” by Mobb Deep hits and lights flicker gold. Scott Diamond approaches the stage dressed in MMA shorts and boots up to his knees. He quickly walks down the rampway devoid of any glits or glamour, laser focused and with a purpose. He climbs up the steps quickly and heads through the ropes, gazing up at the Pain for Pride sign and back towards the entrance.)

Bella Braxton: Introducing first from Long Island, New York. Weighing in at 6’5” 280 pounds…. HE ISSSSSSSSSSSSSS SCOTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT DIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIAMMMMMMMMMMMMMMONNNNNNNNNNND!

James Peters: And who could ever forget his epic match last year at this event? Scott Diamond has had some of the best matches we have ever seen in EAW, and I’m sure tonight is going to be another classic. This man came out of retirement at the request of Voltage’s Co-Commissioner, Captain Charisma, simply to end Lethal Consequences here tonight.

Rich Russillo: He could very well do it too.

(The lights burn out and “Friend vs. Friend” by Company Flow hits. A single white spotlight awaits Lethal Consequences who emerges from the back with a cold, blank look on his face. Paying no attention to the chorus of boos that try to rattle him. He slowly plods his way down the rampway, never taking his eyes off of Scott Diamond the whole way down. He rolls under the bottom rope and reaches his feet, the lights brighten the arena once again and the music fades.)

Bella Braxton: Introducing his opponent, from Oakland, California weighing in at 6’3” 230 pounds… he is… THE INNNNNNNEVITABLLLLLLLEEEEEEEE LETHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLL CONSEQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQUEEEEEEEEENCCCCCCESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!

James Peters: Just like Scott Diamond, Lethal Consequences knows what stage he’s on, he isn’t messing around.

Rich Russillo: Nor should he James. These two men have been in this business for a long time as previously documented and it’s only fitting for their match to take place at Pain for Pride!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

James Peters: The look in Scott’s eyes is fierce but simple, he’s out for blood, he’s been here before, he’s succeeded on this stage and he’s failed on it too, but none of that matters to him right now. His mission? To seek and destroy, and put an end to Lethal Consequences.

Rich Russillo: Would you look at this?! Scott Diamond charges out of the gate like a bull and drives Lethal Consequences into the corner! He thrusts his shoulder into the mid-section four, five, six times now! He squeezes the cheeks of Lethal Consequences and quickly backhands him across the face! He then grabs ahold of Lethal Consequences throat and heaves him across the ring! You weren’t kidding James! He wants to destroy this man!

James Peters: Lethal Consequences rolls out of the ring, buying some time while holding his throat. He narrows his eyes and meets the gaze of Scott Diamond who is hopping in place. Lethal Consequences flips off a fan who was heckling him. He can’t get distracted here, he wanted a match at Pain for Pride and he’s got it! LOOK OUT! INCOMING FREIGHT TRAIN! SCOTT DIAMOND JUST BULLDOZED LETHAL CONSEQUENCES INTO THE STEEL STEPS! LETHAL CONSEQUENCES GRIMACES AND BITES HIS LOWER LIP IN AGONY! THAT WAS A SICK SHOT! SCOTT DIAMOND PULLS LETHAL CONSEQUENCES BACK UP TO HIS FEET AND TOSSES HIM THROUGH THE MIDDLE ROPE AND INTO THE RING!

Crowd: FUCK HIM UP! FUCK HIM UP!

Rich Russillo: Lethal Consequences is pleading with Scott Diamond as Scott reenters but he completely ignores him! He drives down a clubbing blow to the small of Lethal Consequences’ back! He swings around and hooks his waist! HUGE GERMAN SUPLEX DROPS LETHAL CONSEQUENCES ON HIS DOME! SCOTT DIAMOND ISN’T HOLDING BACK FOLKS! HE PULLS HIM UP AGAIN! GERMAN SUPLEX AGAIN!!!!!!! THIS IS AN EXHIBITION PUT ON BY SCOTT DIAMOND! HE PULLS LETHAL CONSEQUENCES BACKUP TO HIS FEET AND LIFTS HIM ON HIS SHOULDERS WITH EASE, BUT LETHAL CONSEQUENCES IS KICKING HIS LEGS OUT OF DESPERATION! HE SLIDES OFF OF SCOTT DIAMOND’S SHOULDERS AND SHOVES SCOTT INTO THE REFEREE!!!

James Peters: SCOTT JUST MANAGED TO STOP HIS MOMENTUM IN TIME OR THAT REFEREE WOULD HAVE BEEN FLATTENED LIKE A PANCAKE! WAIT A SECOND! ROLL UP BY LETHAL CONSEQUENCES!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!

Rich Russillo: Kickout at one! Ever the mischievous Lethal Consequences tried to pull a fast one on Scott Diamond but to no avail! Scott barrels towards Lethal Consequences who dropkicks his knee spinning Scott Diamond around and down! You’ve gotta admit, James, Lethal Consequences is a proven veteran of this business and knows that Scott Diamond can’t hit some of his big time moves if he can’t stand! Lethal Consequences continues to go to work on that knee with repeated stomps right on the MCL! Lethal Consequences holds Scott’s leg up, could he be looking for the figure four?!

James Peters: HE IS! HE SWINGS AROUND AND DROPS DOWN..

Rich Russillo: SCOTT DIAMOND USES HIS FREE LEG TO SEND LETHAL CONSEQUENCES INTO THE CORNER AND ALL THE WAY OUT TO THE FLOOR! WHAT STRENGTH DISPLAYED BY THE FORMER ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION! SCOTT GETS UP GINGERLY, POUNDING HIS LEG WITH HIS FIST IN ORDER TO GET THE BLOOD FLOW CIRCULATING AGAIN! MEANWHILE LETHAL CONSEQUENCES IS BACK UP TO HIS FEET! LOOK OUT!!!!!! SCOTT DIAMOND WITH THE SUICIDE DIVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

James Peters: IT’S SIDESTEPPED AND DIAMOND GOES FOREHEAD FIRST INTO THE POINTED CORNER OF THE ANNOUNCE DESK! JESUS CHRIST I THINK THE EARTH JUST GOT TILTED OFF ITS AXIS WITH THAT COLLISION! LETHAL CONSEQUENCES QUICKLY GOES ON THE ATTACK AND STARTS POUNDING HIS BARE KNUCKLES AGAINST THE FOREHEAD OF DIAMOND WHO IS LEAKING PROFUSELY! STEP-UP ENZIGURI DROPS THE BIG MAN DOWN AND OUT! LETHAL CONSEQUENCES GRABS SCOTT DIAMOND AND ROLLS HIM INTO THE RING! THIS IS NOT GOOD FOR DIAMOND!

Rich Russillo: You gotta think Scott was taking a big risk right there as he isn’t as agile as he used to be even at 6’5”, but he knows what’s at stake here. He knows it’s Pain for Pride but is the price that he just paid too big?! The referee is in between Scott Diamond and Lethal Consequences grabbing a white towel from his pocket and trying to unblind Scott Diamond whose vision is clearly affected.

Crowd: BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!

James Peters: This crowd is savage! They’re a bunch of bloodthirsty animals!

Rich Russillo: Scott Diamond is refusing treatment, he pushes the referee’s hand away.

Scott Diamond: I’M ALRIGHT DAMNIT! I’M ALRIGHT!

James Peters: LETHAL CONSEQUENCES PULLS THE REFEREE BACK AND THROWS A WILD RIGHT HAND BUT SCOTT DIAMOND BACK BODY DROPS HIM OVER THE ROPES!

Rich Russillo: AND ONTO THE APRON! I DON’T THINK SCOTT DIAMOND REALIZES IT EITHER! UNTIL NOW! LETHAL CONSEQUENCES USES THE ROPES TO PROPEL HIMSELF INTO A CROSSBODY!!

James Peters: CAUGHT! SCOTT DIAMOND JUST SNAGGED LETHAL CONSEQUENCES OUT OF MID AIR AND THROWS HIM BACK WITH A DEVASTATING FALLAWAY SLAM! HE IMMEDIATELY STORMS TOWARDS LETHAL CONSEQUENCES! AND HOOKS HIS WAIST! A THIRD GERMAN SUPLEX BUT THIS TIME HE DOESN’T RELEASE THE HOLD! HE PIVOTS HIS BODY AND HEAVES LETHAL CONSEQUENCES BACKWARDS! YET ANOTHER GERMAN SUPLEX! HE’S LITERALLY RAG DOLLING LETHAL CONSEQUENCES AT THE MOMENT! He takes a second to wipe the blood from his eyes while simultaneously releasing the hold. He pulls Lethal Consequences by his throat! BAM! A VICIOUS HEADBUTT SENDS LETHAL CONSEQUENCES RIGHT BACK DOWN! HOWEVER SCOTT DIAMOND FELT THE BRUNT OF THAT TOO, HE’S TRYING TO SHAKE IT OFF, THE WOUND CLEARLY TESTING HIS PAIN THRESHOLD!

Rich Russillo: LETHAL SITS UP SOMEHOW AND GRABS THE ROPES! SCOTT DIAMOND HOOKS HIM FROM THE WAIST AGAIN BUT THIS TIME LETHAL CONSEQUENCES DRIVES A SERIES OF RAPID FIRE BACK ELBOWS TO THE WOUND! THAT STAGGERS DIAMOND! HE SPRINTS FORWARD AND DROPS DIAMOND WITH A BEAUTIFUL LARIAT! LETHAL CONSEQUENCES SMASHES THE HUGE BACK OF SCOTT DIAMOND WITH CLUBBING BLOWS. HE THEN GRABS THE ARM OF SCOTT DIAMOND AND WHIPS HIM INTO THE CORNER!

James Peters: BUT DIAMOND HOLDS HIS GROUND! HE STAYS IN POSITION AND INSTEAD PULLS LETHAL CONSEQUENCES INTO HIS GRASP! OVER-THE-HEAD BELLY TO BELLY! LETHAL CONSEQUENCES JUST WENT AIRBOURNE ABOUT TWO YARDS! I’m not sure what Lethal Consequences strategy was coming into this match but it’s not working, he needs to change it up..

Rich Russillo: He’s grabbing onto the ref who is checking on him!

Lethal Consequences: I think my ribs are busted.

Referee: Do you want me to ring the bell, can you no longer continue?

(Scott Diamond pulling the ref away): Nah, fuck outta here with that, he can contin–

James Peters: NO CAL! A BLATANT PUNCH TO THE CROTCH! WHILE THE REFEREE WAS SPUN AROUND AND OUT OF THE WAY! SCOTT DIAMOND FALLS TO HIS KNEES AND LETHAL QUICKLY PINS HIM!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!

TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

Rich Russillo: DIAMOND POWERS OUT! HE’S BEAT RED IN THE FACE THOUGH! LETHAL CONSEQUENCES NAILED HIM HARDER THAN DARYL KINKADE WAS AT FIGHTING SPIRIT!

James Peters: :wow: That’s a cheap shot.

Rich Russillo: No that punch to the package was the cheap shot!

James Peters: Nevertheless Diamond is crawling on all fours and is immediately met with a basement drop kick by Lethal Consequences into his jaw! Scott tumbles over onto his back as a result. Lethal Consequences lands pinpoint stomps to the sternum and directly on Scott’s forehead! Lethal Consequences backs into the ropes and gains a running start only to connect with a knee drop onto the forehead of Diamond. Scott still visibly bleeding from that wound but he’s finding the inner strength to continue on despite the referee’s concern. Lethal Consequences grabs the tree branch like arm of Scott Diamond, twists around and yanks down.

Rich Russillo: Lethal Consequences seems to be enjoying Scott’s anguish. The look on his face says it all!

Lethal Consequences:

James Peters: He quickly punts the stomach of Scott Diamond a few times while still stretching that arm out! He suddenly bends Scott backward and locks him in a reverse STO position! Could he be looking for Rows Pedal?!?! He eyes the crowd BUT SCOTT DIAMOND SLIPS THE ARM AROUND THE BACK OF HIS NECK AND DRILLS LETHAL CONSEQUENCES WITH A BEAUTIFUL SAITO SUPLEX! LETHAL CONSEQUENCES IS OUT ON HIS ASS! SCOTT TRUCKS TOWARDS THE ROPES AND RETURNS WITH A FULL HEAD OF STEAM! OH FOR GOD SAKES WHAT A CRUSHING RUNNING KNEE TO THE TEMPLE OF LETHAL CONSEQUENCES!!!

Rich Russillo: YOU MEAN A REVERSE POWERSLAM BY LETHAL! A QUICK PIN!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!

TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!

James Peters: KICK OUT BY DIAMOND! NOT ENOUGH! NOT ON THIS STAGE! Lethal Consequences shakes his head and pulls up Scott Diamond, lighting up his chest with knife-edged chops! Scott Diamond is shrugging them off one by one! They don’t seem to bother him that much! He suddenly lifts Lethal Consequences up into a gorilla press position and runs to the ropes! OH MY LORD!!!!!!!!!!! HE JUST THREW LETHAL CONSEQUENCES OVER THE TOP ROPE AND DAMN NEAR THE FOOT OF THE RAMP! WHAT A TERRIBLE FALL FOR LETHAL CONSEQUENCES! SCOTT DIAMOND IS NOT WASTING ANY TIME EITHER; HE’S LIKE A SHARK THAT SMELLS BLOOD IN THE WATER! HE DROPS DOWN UNDER THE BOTTOM ROPE AND PICKS UP THE NEAR-DEAD CARCASS OF LETHAL CONSEQUENCES!

Rich Russillo: THIS ISN’T LOOKING GOOD! SCOTT CARRIES HIM ON HIS SHOULDERS BUT LETHAL CONSEQUENCES SLIPS ONTO HIS FEET BEHIND SCOTT DIAMOND AND DRIVES HIM HEAD FIRST INTO THE POST! DIAMOND CRASHES DOWN TO THE MAT WHILE LETHAL CONSEQUENCES BARELY MANAGES TO GET BACK INTO THE RING! PERHAPS TO BUY SOME TIME IF NOTHING ELSE!

Ref: ONEEEEEEEE!!!!!!

James Peters: NO IT ISN’T! DIAMOND KICKS OUT! DIAMOND KICKS OUT! HOW?! LETHAL CONSEQUENCES IS IRATE!! SCOTT DIAMOND SUDDENLY SITS UP AND GLARES AT LETHAL CONSEQUENCES WHO TURNS AROUND ONLY FOR HIS RIBS TO BE CAVED IN BY RAPID KNEE STRIKES! HE LIFTS LETHAL UP ON HIS SHOULDERS BUT LETHAL IS HOLDING ON DESPERATELY TO THE TOP ROPE! HE FINALLY MANAGES TO LAND ON THE APRON AND THUMBS SCOTT DIAMOND DIRECTLY IN THE EYE, IN THE PROCESS!

Rich Russillo: CHEAP TACTICS, BUT WHAT DO YOU EXPECT FROM LETHAL CONSEQUENCES? THE REFEREE DIDN’T SEE IT EITHER, HIS VISION WAS OBSTRUCTED BY SCOTT’S HUGE FRAME! LETHAL CONSEQUENCES LEAPS OVER THE TOP ROPE, SUNSET FLIP STYLE ATTEMPTS TO PULL SCOTT DIAMOND DOWN WITH HIM. HOWEVER SCOTT FORCES HIM UP BY HIS NECK AND USES BOTH OF HIS HANDS TO POWER LETHAL CONSEQUENCES OVER THE TOP ROPE AND ON TO THE FLOOR! THE REFEREE, LIKE AN ANNOYING FLY TRIES TO INTERVENE DUE TO THE BLOOD POURING FROM SCOTT DIAMOND’S HEAD, BUT SCOTT SHOOTS HIM A NASTY LOOK. BUT WAIT A SECOND, WHERE’S LETHAL CONSEQUENCES? HE’S NOT OUTSIDE THE RING ANYMORE?

James Peters: I have no idea, Scott threw him out on the opposite end to where we’re sitting and..

Rich Russillo: THERE HE IS! HE JUST POKED HIS HEAD OUT FROM UNDER THE RING! SCOTT DIAMOND IS COMPLETELY UNAWARE! LETHAL CONSEQUENCES PULLS HIMSELF TO HIS FEET AND RUSHES BACK INTO THE RING! LOOK OUT SCOTT!

James Peters: SCOTT DIAMOND TURNS AROUND……. DIAMOND’S EDGE! AN EARTH SHATTERING RUNNING SPINEBUSTER THAT JUST TURNED LETHAL CONSEQUENCES INTO MUSH! HE COVERS!

Lethal Consequences: TAP MOTHERFUCKER!

Referee: What do you say Scott?!

Crowd: DO NOT TAP! DO NOT TAP! DO NOT TAP!

James Peters: He might not have a choice folks! HE’S FADING FAST!!!!!! I THINK THE REFEREE IS GOING TO RING THE BELL, HE EYES THE TIMEKEEPER AND BEGINS TO WALK TOWARDS HIM, BUT SCOTT DIAMOND GRABS THE ANKLE OF THE REFEREE AND SHAKES HIS HEAD NO!!!!!! MY GOD!!! THIS GUY WON’T DIE! THIS IS WHAT LEGENDS ARE MADE OF! THIS IS PAIN FOR PRIDE! SCOTT DIAMOND BELTS OUT A WAR CRY AND CHURNS FORWARD! LETHAL CONSEQUENCES SHAKES HIS HEAD IN DISBELIEF. HE’S TRYING TO MANEUVER SCOTT DIAMOND BACK INTO THE CENTER OF THE RING! SCOTT DIAMOND DRAPES A BLOODY FINGER ON TO THE MIDDLE ROPE! HE’S USING ALL OF HIS 6’5” FRAME!

Referee: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR!

Rich Russillo: LETHAL CONSEQUENCES RELEASES THE HOLD AND DROPS TO HIS KNEES, LOOKING UP AT THE LIGHTS IN THE JAM PACKED MERCEDES-BENZ STADIUM HERE IN HOT LANTA! SCOTT DIAMOND’S FOREHEAD IS A GAPING GASH!!!

James Peters: WAIT A MINUTE!! WHAT IS LETHAL CONSEQUENCES UP TOO?!?! HE’S PUTTING ON HIS COVETED HALL OF FAME RINGS!!!!! HE’S LOST IT!!!! AND THE REFEREE IS HAVING NONE OF IT! LETHAL IS PLEADING HIS CASE!! HE WANTS TO DRIVE THOSE RINGS RIGHT INTO SCOTT DIAMOND’S HEAD AND WE HAVE SEEN HIM WIN MATCHES WITH THEM BEFORE!! HE’S SCREAMING AT THE REFEREE!!! LOOK OUT!!!!! SCOTT DIAMOND YANKS LETHAL CONSEQUENCES BY HIS HAIR AND SLAMS THE BACK OF HIS HEAD INTO THE TURNBUCKLE!!!! OH NOOOO!!! LETHAL CONSEQUENCES’ HALL OF FAME RINGS POPPED UP INTO THE AIR AS A RESULT!!! I THINK THEY LANDED OUTSIDE BUT I DIDN’T GET A GOOD VANTAGE POINT!!! SHIT! YOU KNOW THOSE ARE EXPENSIVE WHEN YOU CONSIDER THE KIND OF MONEY THIS COMPANY WILLING THROWS AROUND!!!

James Peters: You can count to a hundred but the referee still isn’t getting up. Scott Diamond looks over at the referee and slams the mat with his hand and attempts to revive the referee, meanwhile Lethal Consequences crawls to the corner. What’s he doing?!

THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(DING! DING! DING!)

Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… HERE IS YOUR WINNER… LETHAL CONSEQUENCES!!!!!

(Friend vs. Friend by Company Flow rehits while officials tend to Scott Diamond as Lethal Consequences finally reaches his feet. He looks around frantically in search of something.)

Rich Russillo: WHAT A WAR WE JUST WITNESSED! THESE TWO LEGENDS PUT ON A CLINIC!!! THEY’RE TRUE THROWBACKS TO AN INCREDIBLE GENERATION!

James Peters: No question. You just gotta feel for Scott Diamond though, the man took Lethal Consequences to hell and back despite a brutal injury. I have no idea what Lethal Consequences is doing either, not that we ever do mind you, but he’s not even cele.. Oh. Right.

(Lethal Consequences picks apart the announce desk and looks over the barricade and into the crowd.)

Lethal Consequences asking nobody in particular (Off Mic): Where’s my rings?!

Fan (Off Mic): YOU SUCK LC!

Lethal Consequences (Off Mic): And you swallow, just like Diamond did that L, now where’s my rings?!

(Lethal Consequences turns around and spots both of his Hall of Fame rings near the edge of the ring.)

Lethal Consequences (Off Mic): MY RINGS! :grinning:

(Boos rain down on Lethal Consequences as he slips the rings on and begins to make his way up the ramp.)

Rich Russillo: You know Captain Charisma has got to be pissed about this result.

James Peters: It’s been an interesting season for Lethal Consequences, but at least it ends here on a high for him.

(A smirk crosses the face of Lethal Consequences as he stares down at the ring at the beaten Scott Diamond. As one of Voltage’s brightest lights this season, LC weathered every storm thrown at him. There’s no doubt that LC will be entering Season 13 as someone to watch as a legitimate championship contender.)

(The camera transitions to the backstage area where we find Provençal, TLA, Xander Payne, and Myles in one of the darkest areas of the arena, seated around a round table each holding a hand of cards. Several stacks of poker chips are scattered around the table, but most of the chips appear to be on TLA and Provençal’s side. Steroid Dawg sits happily on the floor, barking to a nearby poon about the game of poker that’s unfolding on camera. Abuela Pantera watches by from the shadows, sneaking some pieces of hard caramel candy to each of Provencal’s children.)

TLA: Look, Roxxie, Myles, I hate to do it to you, eses, but me and Prov got a lot of mouths to feed, you know? Don’t take it too personally, homes, but I gotta take care of my poons and you know how that goes. Prov got mad kids and shit, too, I can’t imagine they much different.

Provençal: Oui, I have many, many mouths to feed. I do not want to let my family go…how you say, “broke.”

TLA: Word, mami got another one on the way, doesn’t she?

Provençal: Oui, oui.

(TLA turns his head over his shoulder and takes a peak at the crowd of small children now pulling at Abuela Pantera’s dress. He shudders at the thought of having that many children around at all times, thankful that he successfully medically sterilized each and everyone of his poons as a preventative measure. Provençal rubs his hands together, hoping to get lucky he failed an attempt to win the Big Boogie Bhampionship yesterday.)

Provencal: Papa needs a new pair of shoes!

TLA: Aight. I call. (He leans back in his chair, folding his arms behind his head.)

(Myles is absolutely stunned that TLA would make a move of this magnitude.)

Myles: What the?! You’re gonna “call” me?!

Xander Payne: What does that even mean?

Myles: Don’t be silly, you better look at my hand right here, look—read ‘em and weep! Pair of threes! See if you can top that!

Xander Payne: lupe:

(Xander looks nervous as Myles excitedly sets his hand down on the table, some of the stacks of poker chips falling. Provençal and TLA exchange a look, and laugh.)

TLA: :mjlol: Full house, little guy. (He sets his hand down on the table, the camera zooming in to confirm that he indeed holds a full house of cards.) You lose. I did warn you, tho.

Provençal: Sacrè bleu! I’ve never seen a game of cards go so well for one side! Again, again! My kids love to see!

TLA: You know me, I’m down. But it looks like you may need to hit up one of them ATMs, Myles, I believe you said that was the last of the cash you had. Steroid Dawg can show you where it is.

Steroid Dawg: Rawrf.

(Provençal stands up to go check on his children while TLA turns to reprimand a poon for parting her hair on the wrong side.)

Myles: OH, COME ON! (He turns to his tag team partner.) Xander, gimmie your wallet. It’s still Payne for Pride 2, is it not?! If there was ever a time to go all out, it’s now!

Xander Payne: :skip: Are you kidding? I’m not trying to lose anymore than I already have this weekend. (He crosses his arms over his stomach.)

Myles: (He rolls his eyes.) You don’t let me have any fun. This is supposed to be our weekend, the biggest stage of them all. You said it yourself, Payne for Pride 2, we were supposed to be going all out. C’mon. Losing sucks, believe me, but that’s just the way of the game we play, isn’t it? Wins and loses, they come and go. You can’t let that take away from all we’ve accomplished together as a team. Sure, we were enemies at the start, but now? Together, we embody something more complicated. What was behind our reign and perspective on this business is way more complex than these guys can imagine. There’s no point in getting all beat up about it, Xander, there’s plenty awaiting us on the horizon!

Xander Payne: (Xander scoffs.) I’ve been looking forward to this event all year. Twelve entire months of my hard work and keeping all the promises I’ve ever made to myself, and this is where I am. Playing cards with TLA and Provençal backstage, I should be celebrating our damn victory. Tonight was supposed to be *ours*. It was our night. We had all the merchandise and everything, the fans put so much of their faith into us as a tag team and we let them down. And Heavenly Hell put an end to that, they cost me my moment. The Revolution just got in the way as usual. The Flo Bros are the reason why I don’t have my title right now, and I’m angry about it. Because it wasn’t even you or me who got pinned and lost the title—it was *them*. As far as I can tell, we’re STILL an UNDEFEATED tag team. But that doesn’t even matter, we have no titles to show for it, dammit. Tonight, instead of the glory and the satisfaction we should have had, we were robbed. I feel so naked.

Myles: I hear you, Xander. But you can at least try to enjoy yourself. And it wouldn’t hurt to congratulate our competitors from last night, it was still an incredible matchup that I’m proud to say I was able to have in my very first Pain for Pride—

Xander Payne: You wanna know how I feel about that?

(Xander Payne stands up from his seat angrily. Suddenly, with a show of great strength, he flips the round table where the poker game was happening, chips and cards flying all over the locker room, taking Provençal and TLA by surprise. The children are screaming as Abuela Pantera pulls out a small handgun from underneath her dress—just in case :respek: )

Xander Payne: *That’s* how I feel about that—about The Round Table *and* the damn Wildcards.

(Xander storms off as TLA falls to his knees, trying to grab all the poker chips he can get his hands on. The last shot before cutting back to the ring is of Myles, staring in the direction that Xander took off to and sighing heavily.)

(Camera transitions back to the Mercedes Benz Stadium)

(The crowd in the Mercedes – Benz Stadium are on their feet in anticipation for the next match on the slate as Showdown’s Gina Romano is standing out front just inches from the commentary table holding her microphone up ready to speak. Each of the 24/7 Battle Royal participants are already in the ring. Some look to already be at a standoff before the bell even rings, but not physically getting involved in anything but a war of words.)

Gina Romano: The following contest is the 24/7 Battle Royal!

Crowd: YEEEEAAAAAHHHH!!!! WOOOOOOOO!!!

Gina Romano: The only way to eliminate your opponent is by sending them over the top rope where both feet MUST hit the floor! The last participant remaining will be declared the winner, and the owner of the 24/7 contract with an opportunity to cash in for a future championship match!

Crowd: WOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

(DING! DING! DING!)

Stew-O: Well, here we go, kicking things off! Twenty one elitists going at it, setting the stage for what should be a most exciting match to call! An electric atmosphere we’ve already had from day one, and it’s about to get better! We’ve already got the Hall of Famer Hades the Hellraiser duking it out with another big man, RO-NAN and not RO-NIN! FISTS OF FIRE FLYING BETWEEN THOSE TWO!

James Peters: Consuela Rose Ava with a running knee strike to the cornered Connor Hunt! Stiff kicks by Consuela! Forearms from Cameron Ella Ava’s just as beautiful twin! Connor Hunt is already on dreamstreet! Connor looks to retaliate against Consuela but is quickly taken off guard by a spear from Eric Havoc! Havoc following up with mounted punches on Connor!

Deadprez: Miho Li and Io Ishimori continuing their war that’s gone back to many weeks ago when Miho betrayed Io, joining her cousin Celes Dumont and Karina Ann in Fatal Destiny! You know, and a lot of this seems to have stemmed over a stuffed animal of all things. I wonder what Yoshi San would say if she were real??? OH! SPINNING WHEEL KICK BY MIHO! NO! IO ISHIMORI DUCKS THE KICK ATTEMPT! TIGER FEINT KICK BY ISHIMORI! IT’S DUCKED BY MIHO LI! NOW LOOK AT THIS! DARCY MAY MORGAN GRABBING IO ISHIMORI FROM BEHIND! MIHO LI TAKING ADVANTAGE OF THIS BRIEF ALLIANCE! FREE LETHAL FOREARM STRIKES BY MIHO LI TO HER FORMER PARTNER IO ISHIMORI! IO IS UNABLE TO DEFEND HERSELF! DARCY FORCES IO DOWN TO HER KNEES! FACE ACHE BY DARCY! THAT SUPERKICK TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD OF IO ISHIMORI! Man that has to smart! Miho Li and Darcy May Morgan share a glance at one another clearly satisfied with their work! Miho Li holds up her hand for a high five from Darcy! Darcy looks to be obliging but THEN LOOKS FOR A SUCKER PUNCH ON MIHO LI! SHE CALLS IT TALK TO YOU NEVER! BUT MIHO LI ANTICIPATED THIS! MIHO JUST DUCKED THE SUCKER PUNCH! DEADLY LITTLE MIHO! THE KIN’SHAZA’ KICK TO THE FACE AND DOWN GOES DARCY!

Flannery McCoy: Archimedes J. Manson of showdown with a calf kick that knocks one of our own at Dynasty, Dante LeBeau into the ropes! Tilt-a-whirl headscissors takedown by Dante LeBeau! MAMMOTH LUNGES FORWARD AT FULL SPEED TOWARD LEBEAU! BUT LEBEAU LEAPS OVER MAMMOTH! WHAT ATHLETICISM JUST SHOWN BY THE YOUNG MAN! AND MAMMOTH KEEPS GOING AND CONNECTS WITH THE GORE! HE JUST SPEARED THE LIFE OUT OF ARCHIMEDES J. MANSON! NOW KEVIN HAWKINS WHO WAS NEARBY GRABS UP THE LIMP BODY OF MANSON AND TOSSES HIM OVER THE TOP ROPE WHERE HE HITS THE FLOOR WITH A THUD! MAMMOTH DOESN’T SEEM TO LIKE IT TOO MUCH THAT KEVIN HAWKINS STOLE HIS ELIMINATION, AND NOW BOTH MEN TEEING OFF ON THE OTHER!

Gina Romano: Archimedes J. Manson has been eliminated!

Stew-O: Well, that’s one less headcheese in this match, if I may say so myself! Despite what we just saw, and if Dante LeBeau is any example of what our guys from Dynasty are made of, I simply can’t see anyone but someone from Dynasty winning that contract!

Deadprez: Biased trash, as always!

James Peters: Superkick by Cepheus St. Claire to Dante LeBeau that knocks the little man down! Jesse Barlow sure as hell doesn’t know how to treat a woman, does he? He just gouged the eyes of Io Ishimori! DDT by Jesse Barlow to Io Ishimori! He then turns around right into a flying clothesline from Consuela Rose Ava that takes Jesse Barlow down to the canvas! Here comes Cepheus St. Claire now and Consuela meets Cepheus! Hurricanrana takes Cepheus down! Now mounted punches from ‘The Perfectionist’ with each one connecting on the face of Cepheus!

Flannery McCoy: And that’s how you dominate a man! Get him Consuela! But now Sabin Richards of the Mechanical Animals grabs Consuela by her hair from behind! David Gibson also of the Mechanical Animals is there too! Their manager Joseph Gracons is on the outside of the ring shouting instructions to his young charges, giving them the signal! THEY HAVE HER UP HIGH! THEY’RE LOOKING TO ELIMINATE CONSUELA! CONSUELA YELLING OUT STRUGGLING TO ESCAPE! IT’S NO USE! THEY GOT HER EXACTLY WHERE THEY NEED TO JUST TO ELIMINATE HER FROM THIS MATCH! BUT LOOK AT THIS!! EL LANDERSON! THE GOAT!!! SAY IT AIN’T SO! HE’S UP TOP ON THE TURNBUCKLE! BOTH OF THE MECHANICAL ANIMALS SEE HIM NOW! CONSUELA AND EL LANDERSON JUST GAVE THE OTHER A NOD AND A THUMBS UP!!??? FLYING CROSSBODY OFF THE TOP THAT LANDS PERFECTLY KNOCKING BOTH OF THE MECHANICAL ANIMALS SABIN RICHARDS AND DAVID GIBSON OFF BALANCE AS THEY RELEASE CONSUELA IN THE PROCESS!

Stew-O: Am I seeing this right?? Did EL Landerson and Consuela just give each other eye contact again?? Consuela and The GOATEST OF ALL TIME ARE ACTUALLY…ARE THEY REALLY WORKING TOGETHER!??

Sabin Richards and David Gibson get back to their feet with Consuela and Landerson ready to strike! Both of the members of the Mechanical Animals throw wild clotheslines that are dodged by both Consuela and Landerson! Both rebound off the ropes and both go for the Lou Thesz Press on their respective opponents! Consuela to Sabin. Landerson to David Gibson! And the crowd loves it!

James Peters: Silver Ann Gold is getting punished in the corner now by Miho Li with a boot to her throat! There’s no rope breaks in this situation. No time to breathe in this affair. It’s fight for your life or kiss your dreams of 24/7 contract glory buh-bye, and then watch it pass you by!

Deadprez: A great opportunity sits in the balance for each of these competitors, and it’s only a matter of time before more and more eliminations start to take place until we are down to just one competitor remaining!

Flannery McCoy: Just keep building that drama, DP! That’s how we make more bang for our buck around here! Desmond Black now facing off with Sabin Richards! Shane Gates and Eric Havoc have renewed their rivalry here! We all remember what happened the last time these two hooked up in a battle royal setting, and I’m sure this time we shouldn’t have a repeat.

James Peters: Korey Gaines with a baseball slide avoiding the contact of the big boot from Ronan Malosi! Oh my, dropkick by Gaines wasn’t enough. It did nothing but stagger the big man! Korey Gaines ducks a clothesline by Ronan and now throws some haymakers in the face of Ronan that staggers him once more! We got action going on everywhere in this ring right now, it’s complete chaos! Feral Khan just squashed the life out of Connor Hunt in that corner! Powerslam by Khan to Connor! Oh my goodness!

Stew-O: Feral Khan growls now at the few nearby participants which happen to be Shane Gates, Eric Havoc who have actually stopped beating the stuffing out of the other along with Kevin Hawkins! Now all three seem to get the same idea as they stare at the massive mountain of a man, Feral! Feral taunting each man and then decides to flex his muscles! Big boot delivered now by ‘The Outsider’ Kevin Hawkins, followed by Shane Gates and Eric Havoc deciding to work together!

Really????

James Peters: Who says two hated enemies can’t work together toward a common goal, Stew-O!?? Both men with Feral trying to take him to task! But Feral is fighting back against two men!

Deadprez: Two smaller men, but sure they qualify as such I guess. Now Kevin Hawkins getting back in on the act as he throws huge clubbing forearms at Feral Khan! Double dropkicks from both Shane Gates and Eric Havoc to Feral Khan! Khan hits the ropes! Here comes Kevin Hawkins with a full head of steam! DEVASTATING CLOTHESLINE SENDS FERAL KHAN OVER THE TOP TUMBLING TO THE FLOOR!

Stew-O: How the hell is that even justified!!?? Seriously! That was three on one!

Flannery McCoy: Every man and woman for themselves, Stew-O. You know the rules!

Gina Romano: Feral Khan has been eliminated!

Deadprez: That’s two eliminations in this match, and we still got nineteen more to go in this crazy brawl for all until there is only one remaining, and that man or woman will be awarded the much coveted 24/7 Contract. A contract that’s done wonders for more than a few careers here in the Land of Elites!

James Peters: You aren’t lying there, DP! Look at what it did for the careers of our most recent winners like Jack Ripley from last year, and Theron Nikolas the year before that! It’s going to make one of these fortunate young competitors someone to watch out for as we get ready to go into season thirteen in another month or so.

Stew-O: Silver Ann Gold and Miho Li still going at it, but look at the spunk on Silver! She’s been getting beat to the punch right throughout the last several minutes by Miho Li, but she’s back up still looking for more! She gestures for Miho Li to bring it! Miho, known to have some spunk of her own throws a right that’s ducked by Silver! Silver grabs Miho around the neck in a bulldog as she runs up the corner turnbuckle! OVER THE RAINBOW!! A springboard backflip three-quarter facelock falling reverse DDT! Silver Ann pumps her fist with passion and excitement! Here comes Darcy May Morgan with FACE ACHE! NO! SILVER ANN CATCHES THE ATTEMPT! SHE SPINS DARCY MAY AROUND, BOUNCES OFF THE ROPES AND DARCY TAKEN BY SURPRISE! GOLDEN CUTTER! THE HANDSPRING CUTTER BY SILVER ANN AND SHE’S BEGINNING TO ROLL! HERE COMES IO ISHIMORI! LOOKING FOR THE LAST DAY! THE REVERSE STO! BUT SILVER ANN COUNTERS! OVER THE RAINBOW AGAIN! NO! NOW IO ISHIMORI COUNTERS! SHE HAS SILVER ANN ON THE TOP TURNBUCKLE! IO THROWING KICKS TO THE BACK OF SILVER ANN WHO TRIES TO STAY BALANCED ON THAT TOP TURNBUCKLE! THE ASSAULT ON HER BACK COURTESY THOSE HARD STIFF KICKS CONTINUES, SILVER ANN FEELING EACH ONE AS SHE YELLS OUT! IO BACKS AWAY! SILVER ANN HOPS OFF! SHE’S ON THE APRON ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE ROPES! HERE COMES IO LOOKING TO GET HER FIRST ELIMINATION! SHE COMES FULL THROTTLE TOWARD SILVER, BUT SILVER DUCKS THE STIFF FOREARM AND BASEBALL SLIDES BACK THROUGH THE ROPES AND THROUGH THE MIDDLE OF THE LEGS TO POP UP RIGHT BEHIND IO ISHIMORI! CLOTHESLINE TO ISHIMORI THAT KNOCKS HER OVER THE TOP ROPE! BUT IO LANDS ON HER FEET ON THE APRON! SILVER ANN RUSHES IN ON IO, BUT A BACK ELBOW TO THE HEAD OF SILVER WHICH KNOCKS HER FOR A LOOP! IO HOPS UP ON THE TOP ROPE! THE BLIZZARD BY IO! THE SPRINGBOARD HURRICANRANA! NOW MOUNTED PUNCHES ON SILVER BY IO ISHIMORI!

Deadprez: Sheesh, Stew-O, you’d think these ladies were life long friends the way they keep going at it here and countering almost everything they throw at each other! But on to other action over to our left, we’ve got the members of the Mechanical Animals double teaming Hades The Hellraiser in the opposite corner! HADES THOUGH WITH A BIG BOOT TO THE INCOMING SABIN RICHARDS! DAVID GIBSON TRIES TO ASSUME CONTROL AGAIN BUT HADES NOW CHARGES OUT OF THE CORNER WITH A CLOTHESLINE THAT KNOCKS DAVID GIBSON INSIDE OUT! HADES TURNS AROUND THOUGH AND GETS BEATEN TO THE PUNCH ONCE AGAIN BY SABIN RICHARDS! A kick landed to the midsection of Hades but it barely fazes him! CHOKESLAM TO HELL DELIVERED TO SABIN RICHARDS! HADES GRABS UP BOTH MEMBERS OF THE MECHANICAL ANIMALS BY THEIR HAIR AND SMASHES THEIR HEADS TOGETHER BEFORE RUNNING FORWARD WITH BOTH MEN IN TOW, AND THEN HADES SENDS BOTH MEMBERS OF THE MECHANICAL ANIMALS OVER THE TOP ROPE WHERE THEY COLLIDE WITH THE HARDENED FLOOR BELOW!

James Peter: HE DID IT! WOW! HADES JUST TOSSED OUT TWO MEN THAT WERE LOOKING GREAT BEFORE THEY RAN INTO THE RESIDENT HELLRAISER OF EAW, ALL AT ONCE!!

Gina Romano: David Gibson and Sabin Richards have both been eliminated!

Stew-O: Hades then turns around to…He turns to see El Landerson staring at him from the center of the ring! What a moment this is as Hades walks on up to Landerson! The crowd begins buzzing. Landerson looks up at the towering Hades who just looks down, somewhat annoyed not really knowing what to make of this stare down! He’s certainly not eating up as much as the crowd is at the moment!

CROWD: G….O….A….T. GOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAATTTTTT!!!! (Landerson puts his hand to his ear while this goes on for a moment)

Flannery McCoy: Now both EL Landerson and Hades turn around to see trespassers in their space coming from behind, it’s Cepheus St. Claire and Jesse Barlow which brings huge jeers from these fans watching them break up such a G.O.A.T moment, and rightly so. THAT IS ACTUALLY VERY W.O.A.T.!!! I mean, this is the former Bhig Bhris Bhampion for crying out loud, and Hades The Fucking Hellraiser! But those jeers soon turn to cheers once they see both Hades and El Landerson getting the best of their respective situations! BIG BOOT TO THE FACE BY HADES TO JESSE BARLOW! NOW A HURRICANRANA FROM EL LANDERSON TO CEPHEUS ST. CLAIRE THAT TAKES CEPHEUS DOWN TO THE CANVAS! AND NOW LANDERSON QUICKLY BACK UP AS HE EYES HADES WHO STARES BACK! I CAN’T BELIEVE WHAT I’M SEEING AS LANDERSON AND HADES ROLL THEIR EYES BACK UP INTO THEIR HEADS, STICK THEIR TONGUE’S OUT AND THEY JUST GAVE THE CUTTHROAT SIGNAL TO ONE ANOTHER!

WTH!!!

EL Landerson (off mic): Did you make me do that?

(El Landerson wondered curiously as he awaits a response from Hades.)

Hades (off mic): No.

(El Landerson looks on somewhat confused, as he takes a second to ponder.)

El Landerson (off mic): Really??? Hhmph. Must’ve been those skittles I downed before the match! Lot’s of sugar, low carbs. You’re really good, though.

Hades (off mic): Don’t mock me anymore son, you got that?

(Hades points at The G.O.A.T. as he says this and Landerson puts his thumb up to show he understands.)

El Landerson (off mic): Got it.

James Peters: An unusual exchange between Hades and El Landerson to which I don’t know what any of that was all about to be quite honest with you. Now Cepheus and Jesse Barlow working together as they whip Korey Gaines to the ropes! Double flapjack to Korey! Now Consuela Rose Ava makes her presence known once again with a roundhouse kick that catches Jesse Barlow upside the head! This is followed by a front thrust kick that sends Jesse to the corner! Running high knee by Consuela that catches the upper chest area of Jesse which knocks some of the wind from his sails! Now Consuela grabbing Jesse around his neck and delivers a running bulldog! Good form by Consuela! She’s really on a roll.

Stew-O: Now Consuela grabs up Jesse Barlow and attempts to erase him from this match by tossing him over the top rope but Jesse hanging on with everything he’s got! Consuela has him up off his feet! But he’s still hanging on, he’s tough! Consuela does it! She got him over the top rope!

Deadprez: Hold on, hold on. Jesse Barlow appears to have hung on! He rolls back under the bottom rope! And Jesse Barlow is back up in a hurry! BUT HE’S TRIPPED UP! CONSUELA TRIPS UP JESSE BARLOW! SUELA LOCK! JESSE BARLOW IS A BIT PANICKY AT THE MOMENT AS HE’S CLEARLY TRAPPED WITH NOWHERE TO GO! I THINK HE KNOWS HE WON’T GET ELIMINATED FOR TAPPING WHICH IS WHAT HE’S DOING BUT IT DOESN’T MATTER BECAUSE CONSUELA IS NOT LETTING GO AND THE REFEREES CAN’T DO A THING! SHE WANTS TO SEND A MESSAGE!

Consuela: ¡ESTO ES MI PERRA DE TURF! ¿BUENO?

Jesse: AHHHHHHHH!!! SCREW YOU CUNT!

(Consuela transitions from the (lebell Lock) to straight up disrespectful hair pulling)

Consuela: ¡RESPUESTA INCORRECTA!

Flannery: That’s showing him Consuela! Mop the floor with that ugly scrub’s face! Consuela just repeatedly bashing the face of Jesse Barlow against the canvas! Now Connor Hunt with a kick to the side of the head of Consuela that knocks her back slightly! Consuela looks on in somewhat shock, but then it turns to anger! Connor Hunt starts taunting Consuela now as if he did something great!

Connor: Stop messing with the little girl, and fight a real man!

James Peters: Consuela looks up with a build up of anger showing on her face at Connor Hunt! This could end up being a big mistake by Connor! Connor turns to see an oncoming El Landerson! CONNOR DOESN’T REACT IN TIME! FLYING THRUST KICK TO THE HIGH CHEST AREA SENDS CONNOR HUNT’S MOMENTUM BACK INTO THE ROPES! CONNOR FLIES OVER THE TOP ROPE! BUT HE CATCHES HIMSELF! CONSUELA RISES BACK TO HER FEET AND RUSHES AT THE ROPES AS CONNOR WHO WAS BARELY HANGING ON WAS ABOUT GET BACK ON THE APRON! SHOOT KICK BY CONSUELA TO THE HEAD KNOCKS CONNOR HUNT CLEAR OFF THE APRON WHERE HITS THE FLOOR!

Gina Romano: Connor Hunt has been eliminated!

Consuela: Now who’s the little girl?

Stew-O: Consuela has some words for the now eliminated Connor Hunt who looks on from the floor in disgust of what just transpired! We’re down to fifteen more eliminations, and a single contract up for grabs to the lone participant that remains! It’s getting more interesting by the minute! Now we got Ronan Malosi trying to get Desmond Black over the top rope with the help of Dante Lebeau, and they appear to be having some success! Desmond Black is fighting, trying to keep himself in this match, but-oh, yeah that did it. Desmond Black has just been shown the curtains! Desmond Black just hit the floor. I don’t know who to credit for that. They both dumped him over!

Gina Romano: Desmond Black has been eliminated!

James Peters: And the battle continues, as Eric Havoc just tossed Silver Ann Gold out to the floor! Now the humanity in the ring is noticeably shrinking in numbers, as have yet another elimination!

Gina Romano: Silver Ann Gold has been eliminated!

Flannery McCoy: Korey Gaines is getting the stuffing beat out of him by both Ronan Malosi and Jesse Barlow! Jesse stomping a mudhole into Korey! Korey Gaines now at a seated position, and now it’s Ronan Malosi with a big boot to the throat of Gaines! Now Ronan picks up Korey Gaines by his hair with Jesse Barlow flanking Korey on the side opposite just nailed Gaines with a hard back elbow! And another hard shot! A free shot to the face with that back elbow to Gaines again! Now both Ronan and Jesse whip Korey Gaines to the ropes! And a flying spinning wheel kick that nails Jesse Barlow, knocking him back into the ropes! Korey Gaines hurries back to his feet! Multiple kick combinations by Korey Gaines to Ronan Maloski, but they’re barely fazing him! Korey with an enzigiri that staggers Ronan slightly! Here comes Korey Gaines again with a running low dropkick to the calf of Ronan that knocks him down to a knee! Roundhouse kick by Korey Gaines to the head of Ronan Malosi! Ronan Malosi falls back after Korey’s roundhouse connects with authority!

James Peters: And the action continues to the right. It’s Eric Havoc and he just taps Cepheus on the shoulder. Cepheus turns around which puts him on the receiving end of a few knee strikes from Eric Havoc! Cepheus is a little off balance at the moment! Quick punches flying now at the head and midsection of Cepheus St. Claire! Cepheus though finally mounts an offense in return with a headbutt that definitely had some force behind it! Eric Havoc holding his head! Cepheus goes to whip Eric Havoc to the ropes! And a running swinging neckbreaker by Cepheus to Eric Havoc!

Deadprez: Over nearby to the right we have both of the Jesse Barlow and Ronan Malosi who appear to have some sort of on going alliance formed here are trying to remove the giant in this match, Kevin Hawkins! That’s proving a to be a tall order, even for two men! Kevin has a good amount of experience so I’m sure he’s been in battle royal like settings before! Now we got Mammoth joining in on the act! He appears to be communicating something to Jesse! Jesse Barlow agrees and grabs one of the boots of Kevin Hawkins and begins lifting him off the ground! It’s a 3 on 1 folks and Kevin Hawkins is struggling but he’s still winning the battle but will he win the war!!?? Now here comes Ronan Malosi! He grabs up Kevin Hawkins other foot and now Hawkins is off the canvas! And now all three men get Hawkins over the top rope! Hawkins is desperately gripping at the top rope trying to hang on! Now each man trying to pry the hands of Kevin Hawkins off the top rope!

Stew-O: Now a headbutt by Kevin Hawkins to Ronan which staggers him! Another headbutt! This time to Jesse Barlow! Kevin Hawkins has fought off two of the three men! Now Kevin Hawkins is using one of his free hands to throw a forearm into the face of Jesse Barlow! Headbutt to Ronan Malosi! He just avoided elimination by fighting off three men! An incredible-GORE! GORE! GORE! OUT OF NOWHERE MAMMOTH JUST SPEARED THE HELL OUT OF KEVIN HAWKINS SENDING HIM STRAIGHT OFF THE APRON TO THE FLOOR! KEVIN LAYS ON THE GROUND ON HIS SIDE IN PAIN! MAMMOTH STANDS IN THE RING BREATHING STEAM WITH INTENSITY IN HIS EYES AS HE SEEMS TO BE LOST IN A TRANCE AS HE LOOKS DOWN AT THE JUST ELIMINATED KEVIN HAWKINS!

Gina Romano: Kevin Hawkins has been eliminated!

Flannery McCoy: Now Mammoth turns around and gets sent over the top rope by a double clothesline from both Barlow and Malosi! Mammoth hits the floor and he’s now gone from this match!

Gina Romano: Mammoth has been eliminated!

Deadprez: Credit to the two man combo of Barlow and Malosi there. We’re down to twelve more eliminations to go! Soon we’ll have a new 24/7 contract holder! Could it actually be a woman??? Every single female representing Empire is still alive but one on this night for its final night! But guys, these women are fighting for something, you can tell. We’ve had one elimination on the women’s side so far to my knowledge! Four women are left in this match and they’re all still fighting for the right to become the next 24/7 contract holder, and a win for the women’s side that would be quite an accomplishment!

James Peters: We’ll have to wait and see, Io Ishimori and Darcy May Morgan are teaming up it looks like to try and eliminate Consuela Rose Ava, but Consuela has a pretty good hold the situation, not appearing to be so willing to let go of the ropes at this point!

Stew-O: Jesse Barlow and Ronan Malosi seem to have the same idea in mind in the opposite corner as both are trying to eliminate El Landerson! Landerson hanging on for dear life just as Consuela is on the other end!

Deadprez: Welp! We just had another elimination! Hades with a powerful clothesline takes Eric Havoc over the top where he hits the floor.

Gina Romano: Eric Havoc has been eliminated!

Shane Gates with a springboard dropkick to Jesse Barlow that sends Barlow falling back! Now Ronan Malosi going after Dante LeBeau from behind! Cepheus St. Claire now getting in on the act with Ronan Malosi! They’re looking to get Dante in position! They may be looking for the kill here! Shane Gates with DEAD MAN – inverted sitout side powerslam to Barlow! Cepheus now with a dragon sleeper hold applied to Dante LeBeau and he now repeatedly pounds away at the exposed chest of Dante!

James Peters: Ahem! Kings only, Flannery. Always remember that.

Deadprez: Speaking of Kings, it’s El Landerson that’s now taking some shots to the head from Hades and he’s dazed! BIG BOOT TO EL LANDERSON WHICH SENDS LANDERSON FALLING OFF THE TOP TURNBUCKLE AND TO THE FLOOR! HADES GAINING MOMENTUM HERE! Remember the resident Hall of Famer has won this event before, so don’t count the man out because of his age! That could actually prove to be a huge factor later!

Gina Romano: El Landerson has been eliminated!

Stew-O: Well, we had high hopes for ya kid, but…..time to take a hike! Shane Gates now goes after Hades, not exactly the smartest move this string bean could be making! Shane with a cross arm bar submission that takes down Hades slightly, definitely taking him by surprise! Hades trying to fight out of this predicament! Now Miho Lee laying kicks to the leg of Hades! Hades looks to Miho as if to say “are you kidding me right now!??” and quite frankly I don’t blame him! He’s got two of the smallest people in the match coming at him like a couple of knats on a warm weather day! Look at this! Io Ishimori is now kicking Hades in the face! I hope you all know that that’s a Hall of Famer and former World Champion you’re attempting to piss off here!

James Peters: I’m sure they realize it, and they’re definitely teaming up in an effort to get rid of the biggest man in the match! Hades tries shaking them off but now all three – Io, Shane, and Miho are all on Hades like hound dogs! Hades still Shane hanging on his arm while Io and Miho are relentlessly beating Hades The Hellraiser! Hades raises up his arm with Shane hanging on and he slams Shane Gates to the canvas! Shane lets up as Miho Lee and Io get shoved back by the force of Hades! Just as Hades was just removing himself from the corner Dante LeBeau comes flying out of nowhere with a double knee face crusher to Hades! Korey Gaines now with a flying dropkick to Hades who was leaned on the ropes completely dazed! KOREY GAINES AND DANTE LEBEAU WITH DOUBLE SUPERKICKS TO HADES THE HELLRAISER WHICH SENDS THE HALL OF FAMER OVER TOP ROPE TO THE FLOOR! HADES HAS BEEN ELIMINATED! HE CAN’T BELIEVE IT NOR CAN KOREY AND DANTE! WOW!

Gina Romano: Hades The Hellraiser has been eliminated!

James Peters: Welp that’s how the cookie crumbles! Darcy and Io still teaming up in the corner to try and eliminate perhaps the biggest threat in the match Consuela Rose Ava! Consuela doing her best to hang on, now as Io lays some hard forearms to the head of Consuela! Darcy May is throwing a few front kicks to the midsection of Consuela! Now they’re both trying to grab up Consuela by her feet having weakened her some! They’re getting her up and almost over! This would signify a huge elimination for both ladies if they could be rid of Consuela, one of the first ever Empire female elitists going back to when the brand debuted! Oh wait a minute! Miho Lee from behind! Miho just surprised Darcy May Morgan from behind by grabbing her by her tights and dumping her over the top rope!

Gina Romano: Darcy May Morgan has been eliminated!

Flannery McCoy: Darcy May Morgan is now the second woman to be eliminated from this match, but it would seem the ladies and men have divided off on opposite sides of the ring. Shane Gates with a springboard dropkick to Jesse Barlow that sends Barlow falling back! Now Ronan Malosi going after Dante LeBeau from behind! Cepheus St. Claire now getting in on the act with Ronan Malosi! They’re looking to get Dante in position! They may be looking for the kill here! Shane Gates with DEAD MAN – inverted sitout side powerslam to Barlow! Cepheus now with a dragon sleeper hold applied to Dante LeBeau and he now repeatedly pounds away at the exposed chest of Dante!

Flannery McCoy: Consuela Rose Ava with a double clothesline that takes down both Io and Miho! Consuela rebounds off the ropes! Penalty kick to the head of Io Ishimori! Consuela rebounds off the ropes again! AND ANOTHER PENALTY KICK! THIS ONE FOR MIHO LEE! Now Ronan Malosi and Jesse Barlow are both coming at Consuela Rose Ava! They’ve been working together for quite some time now! Consuela is unfazed though as she rolls through which takes both men by surprise! A ROUNDHOUSE KICK TO RONAN MALOSI! A RUNNING KNEE STRIKE TO JESSE BARLOW THAT KNOCKS JESSE TO THE ROPES! BUT BARLOW COMES BACK WITH A BEAUTIFUL SCISSORS KICK! BUT IT’S DODGED BY CONSUELA! LA RODILLA DE LA MUERTE! RUNNING HIGH KNEE TO JESSE BARLOW AND BARLOW IS OUT COLD! Or so it would seem but Jesse rolls out of dodge! He doesn’t want anymore of Consuela Rose Ava at the moment! Here comes Shane Gates taking his turn with Consuela, and they both trade kicks with the other. Neither one proving to be very effective, and then Shane goes for Ripcord Manslaughter on Consuela but Consuela fights out before Shane could complete the sequence and instead uses his own momentum against him, and there goes Shane! Shane Gates is gone!

Gina Romano: Shane Gates has been eliminated!

Deadprez: Now Miho and Io are teaming. Wait a minute? Miho Li and Io Ishimori….a team? And their taking it to Dante LeBeau who’d been trying to smartly keep out of the fray to conserve his energy only for the competition to finally pick up on it. Dante getting brutalized by these kicks from each side by both of the former Empire Elitists, and Dante falls to a knee! DEADLY LITTLE MIHO TO THE HEAD OF DANTE LEBEAU! AND IO DOESN’T LET HIM FALL! INSTEAD SHE GRABS HIM UP! SHE GIVES THE CUTTHROAT TO THE CROWD! INVIERNO! (THE BLADE RUNNER) The crowd sure enjoyed that sequence, as both Miho Li and Io Ishimori grab up the dazed and helpless Dante LeBeau and together toss him over the top rope where he hits the floor! And LeBeau is gone!

Gina Romano: Dante LeBeau has been eliminated!

Stew-O: Miho Li and Io Ishmori take turns shoving one another, clearly taking offense to the other trying to one-up! Meanwhile Cepheus St. Claire and Consuela Rose Ava are exchanging punches in the center of the ring as Jesse Barlow and Ronan Malosi continue their pairing by double teaming Io Ishimori! The former Empire elitist is in a lot of trouble as her two bigger, stronger male counterparts from Dynasty and Showdown respectively have her in position at the ropes! She’s kicking desperately at the two men trying to fight back! They manage to get her over but she lands on her feet on the apron just outside, in no man’s land! Jesse Barlow tries to clothesline her down off the apron but a huge shoulder thrust knocks Jesse back….ENZIGURI FROM IO ISHIMORI WHO JUST STEPPED BACK THROUGH THE ROPES AS SHE REMAINS ALIVE! RONAN MALOSI! HE TRIES A SNEAK ATTACK….BUT HE MISSES AS HIS CHANCE! PELE KICK FROM IO ISHIMORI! WHAT QUICKNESS AND AGILITY BEING SHOWN BY IO! BUT KOREY GAINES! KOREY GAINES OUT OF NOWHERE TAKES IO DOWN WITH A RUNNING FOREARM THAT WASN’T READY FOR AND THIS KNOCKS HER INTO THE ROPES! ROUNDHOUSE KICK BY GAINES SENDS IO STRAIGHT OVER THE TOP ROPE WHERE SHE TUMBLES HARD TO THE FLOOR!…But she’s pissed man, as she punches at the barricade!

Gina Romano: Io Ishmori has been eliminated!

James Peters: Well Korey Gaines is now feeling pretty good about himself, and one would imagine his chances as well as things wind down here. We’ve got six left here! And look at this! Korey Gaines, Jesse Barlow, and Ronan Malosi are circling around Miho Li, who realizes she’s in a bind, but she’s game, she’s telling each of them to bring it on! She throws her hands out in balled fists ready for a fight and they come! She takes Korey Gaines down with a right hand! Jesse comes at her now, and he receives a kick to the chest for his troubles! The kick rocks Jesse Barlow backward into the ropes! Miho Li jumps up and hits Jesse with the Thesz press! Ronan Malosi tries to intervene but he’s cut off with a flying forearm from Consuela! Consuela is trying to lend a hand to ‘The Invincible’ Miho Li, but Ronan is back up now as Korey Gaines and Dante LeBeau now go to work on Consuela Rose Ava! Ronan goes at Miho Li again attacking her from behind, and now Ronan and Jesse are double teaming on Miho Li!

Flannery McCoy: Two females left, four males left! I’ll take the two any day of the week, guys! I enjoyed working with these two, especially Consuela watching her grow and evolve this season has been something to behold! But now it’s Consuela holding her own against Korey Gaines and Cepheus St. Claire. Oh but a running corkscrew neckbreaker by Cepheus on Consuela! Cepheus then poses, taunting a bit as well.

Deadprez: Deadlift suplex by Ronan Malosi to Miho Li! A gouge of the eyes by Miho Li! She continues digging into the eyes of Ronan! Korey Gaines! DISCUS ELBOW SMASH SENDS THE BLINDED RONAN MALOSI TEETERING TOWARD THE ROPES! OH NO! MALOSI JUST DROPPED MIHO LI TO THE OUTSIDE! MIHO IS GONE!

Gina Romano: Miho Li has been eliminated!

James Peters: RONAN TRYING TO REGAIN HIS SIGHT! SUPERKICK BY KOREY GAINES TO RONAN MALOSI! AND OVER THE TOP ROPE GOES RONAN! RONAN MALOSI IS NOW GONE!

Gina Romano: Ronan Malosi has been eliminated!

Stew-O: Final four folks! Cepheus St. Claire, Korey Gaines, Jesse Barlow, and Consuela Rose Ava remain! One of these four will soon be known as the owner of the next 24/7 contract, and with it a shot at any champion come next season! Who’s it gonna be!!?? All four looking at the other waiting to see who’s going to make the first move! Suddenly Jesse Barlow shoots outward toward Cepheus St. Claire with an eye gouge followed by a DDT to Cepheus! While Consuela runs at Korey Gaines who runs at Consuela trying to anticipate each other’s next move! SPANISH FLY BY CONSUELA JUST DROPPED KOREY GAINES IN A HEAP! KOREY TRIES TO RECOVER! CONSUELA WITH A JUMPING SNAPMARE!

Flannery McCoy: Cepheus St. Claire having a hard time recovering here! This doesn’t look good, and Jesse Barlow has that killer instinct we’ve come to know. Jesse backsteps a few steps, just lining up his target! Cepheus out on his knees! HERE COMES JESSE BARLOW A FULL HEAD OF STEAM! NEVERMORE! THE V-TRIGGER! THAT RUNNING HIGH KNEE JUST ROCKED CEPHEUS! JESSE BARLOW WASTES NO TIME TO GRAB UP THE STUMBLING AND YET NEAR DEAD WEIGHT OF CEPHEUS ST. CLAIRE AFTER THAT LAST EXCHANGE! AND NOW OVER THE TOP ROPE GOES CEPHEUS ST. CLAIRE! JESSE BARLOW ELIMINATES CEPHEUS ST. CLAIRE!

Gina Romano: Cepheus St. Claire has been eliminated!

Deadprez: Now Consuela tries taking Jesse Barlow by surprise, but he was ready! Jesse Barlow ducks the clothesline by Consuela! German Suplex by Jesse Barlow! But Consuela lands on her feet! ELBOW SMASH TO BARLOW SENDS HIM REELING BACK INTO THE ROPES! BARLOW THOUGH REBOUNDS BACK WITH THE ABOLISHER! THE ABOLISHER! THAT SPEAR! NO! IT’S DODGED BY CONSUELA BUT BARLOW KEEPS GOING BECAUSE HE’S JUST SPOTTED HIS NEXT TARGET!! KOREY GAINES JUST ATE THAT SPEAR! KOREY GAINES HAD JUST RECOVERED FROM A FEW MINUTES AGO AND NOW HE’S OUT AGAIN!

Stew-O: Now Consuela moves in on Jesse, and Jesse rises up in time to avoid that penalty kick by Consuela! Consuela hits the ropes and then rebounds off! SPRINGBOARD CROSSBODY CONNECTS! Repeated rapid fists of fire as Jesse Barlow tries to cover up! Consuela back up now full of intense emotion as she lets it all out running pure adrenaline now!

Consuela: This is MY TIME!

Flannery McCoy: Consuela is relentless as she now helps Korey Gaines up by pulling back to his feet by his hair! She drags Korey over to the corner! Now she transitions around and then sunset flips forward with Korey Gaines to deliver-NO! Korey hangs on to the ropes! Consuela falls through and hits the canvas! Consuela though doesn’t give up! In fact she’s quickly back up and Korey Gaines has very little time to react as he turns right into a flying clothesline by Consuela that sends Korey Gaines into the ropes! Consuela is struggling but she’s persistent! She’s trying to get Korey Gaines over the top rope but Korey his showing also how resource he can be as well by hanging on! But I’m afraid it may only be a matter of time now for the youngster!

Deadprez: Look at Jesse Barlow though! He’s back up, and he rushes in toward Consuela and Korey Gaines! Jesse Barlow uses all his strength and momentum to pick up both Consuela and Korey by their feet as they were struggling back and forth leaning against the ropes! Jesse Barlow! He’s got them both over the top rope at the same time! AND THEY’RE GONE!….

James Peters: Jesse Barlow immediately flees the scene back toward the center of the ring full of shock as he holds his arms up in victory! Now he’s celebrating on the second rope turnbuckle as the crowd gives a mixed reaction! He’s so excited and satisfied with his effort he doesn’t even managed to catch the announcement about to be made! Turn around Jesse! It’s not over!

Gina Romano: ………………Korey Gaines has been eliminated!..

Flannery McCoy: Hang on Consuela! She’s hanging on to that top rope for dear life, just dangling away with one hand hanging on! The outside referee is making sure she doesn’t touch the floor, as we see Korey Gaines getting pointed toward the back! Consuela is now pulling herself up! Look at this! She’s managed to grab the top rope with both hands and with all her strength pulls herself up doing a full reverse looping somersault flip back over the top rope where she lands on her feet in the ring! Jesse Barlow is still oblivious, so overcome with emotion believing he’s won! He has no idea that Consuela is back in the ring! Jesse finally turns just enough to see Consuela, but it’s too late! He’s barely had time to react as she runs right at Jesse Barlow! LA RODILLA DE LA MUERTE! THE HIGH LIFT RUNNING KNEE KNOCKS JESSE BARLOW STRAIGHT OFF THE TURBUCKLE AND OVER THE TOP ROPE WHERE JESSE BARLOW CRASHES TO THE FLOOR!

Gina Romano: Jesse Barlow has been eliminated!…

(DING! DING! DING!)

(‘We Appreciate Power’ by Grimes starts back up just as Consuela Rose Ava drops down to her knees as the crowd cheers loudly for ‘The Perfectionist’. Consuela is a bit overcome by emotion in the center of the ring as the referee raises her hand which prompts her to stand back up and allow her victory to be acknowledged.)

Gina Romano: Here is your winner of this match, and the NEEEWWWW ELITE ANSWERS WRESTLING 24/7 CONTRACT HOLDER AT PAIN FOR PRIDE XII!!!……CONNNNSSSSUUUEEELLLLAAA RRRRROOOOSSSSEEEEE!! AAAAAVVVVVVAAAAA!!!!

Deadprez: SHE DID IT! SHE DID IT! CONSUELA ROSE AVA HAS DONE IT! SHE’S THE NEW 24/7 CONTRACT HOLDER, AND I DON’T THINK THIS CROWD COULD AGREE MORE WITH THIS YEAR’S WINNER! THIS CROWD IS LOUD, BUT I’M LOUDER! SHE’S HAD AN UP AND DOWN SEASON, BUT FOR IT END LIKE THIS HAS TO BE LIKE HEAVEN FOR THIS YOUNG LADY!

James Peters: INDEED. A WELL DESERVED WIN FOR CONSUELA! EVERYONE FOUGHT THEIR HEARTS OUT, ESPECIALLY THE ROOKIE JESSE BARLOW WHO ALMOST WON THE WHOLE THING! BUT DESPITE THIS HAVING TO WEIGH HEAVILY ON THOSE THAT CAME SO CLOSE, IT’S TIME TO LOOK TOWARD THE FUTURE TO SEE WHAT OTHER OPPORTUNITIES ARE AHEAD! BUT THIS MOMENT, IT BELONGS TO THE WINNER OF THIS MATCH! THAT WOMAN…..CONSUELA ROSE AVA! CONGRATS!

(Consuela is shown hopping off the apron full of satisfaction with this victory. She’s exhausted but still manages to find a moment to tag hands with a few fans on her way toward the ramp where she turns around to acknowledge the crowd noise by putting her hands to her mouth and blowing and then gesturing outwardly by blowing a double kiss to the crowd to show her appreciation for the show of respect from them as she backpedals a bit before turning to leave.)

Stephie Love: OUR NEXT CONTEST IS SCHEDULED FOR ONE FALL!!!

Crowd: ONE FALL!!!

Stephie Love: AND IS FOR THE EAW PURE CHAMPIONSHIP!!!

(“Just Cos You Got The Power” by Motörhead plays and the Lights go dark as Michaels entrance music starts up as the drum pattern begins. The tron begins to flash with propaganda against EAW and it’s PURE champion, Ms. Extreme. Michaels walks out, his gaze stone cold, his eyes focused on his goal. No fancy fireworks or other nonsense, just a quick and clean decimation of whoever stands in between him and the total annihilation Of EAW.)

Flannery McCoy: THE CHALLENGER…HAILING FROM MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA…WEIGHING IN AT 240 POUNDS…PUBLIC ENEMY NUMBER ONE…MAAAAAARK MIIIIIICHAAAAELS!!!

Stew-O: This man has been in this position before as the challenger to this very title! Mark Michaels has faced Ms. Extreme in the past by wasn’t quite ready to dethrone the longest reigning PURE Champion ever. Tonight, at Pain for Pride XII, Mark gets his opportunity to prove the doubters wrong!

Flannery McCoy: Michaels wants to deface The Extreme Face of Elite Answers Wrestling and take her title with him on this beautiful Atlanta summer night here in Georgia!

Stew-O: This look in his eye is a bit different then one we have seen from him before. Mark is here to make history!

(Michaels enters the ring and places his head on the turnbuckle while his music fades out. The crowd becomes unglued as “The Joker” by New Year’s Day strums out. The lights go red as out steps Ms. Extreme to a pro Red Queen crowd.)

Stephie Love: AAAAAND THE CHAMPION!!! FROM CALABASAS, CALIFORNIA…WEIGHING IN AT 135 POUNDS…SHE IS THE EXTREME FACE OF ELITE ANSWERS WRESTLING…THE PURE CHAMPION…MS. EXXXXXXXTREEEEME!!!!

(Ms. Extreme raises her PURE title high in the air as the fans go nuts.)

Crowd: MS. EX-TREME!!! MS. EX-TREME!!! MS. EX-TREME!!!

Stew-O: THE EAW LOVES THEM SOME MS. EXTREME! AND CAN YOU BLAME THEM? She has been a fighting champion who has taken on every challenger that’s thrown their glove down and wanted to end her reign and her she is! Record breaker herself standing her at Pain for Pride XII looking to defeat Mark Michaels again and continue the longest run ever for a PURE title holder!

Flannery McCoy: She has beaten him before but like we said, Mark isn’t looking like a guy happy for a title shot. He has a mission based on hate that he seems hell bent on finishing here at the biggest show in EAW history!

(Ms. Extreme rolls under the bottom ropes and raises her title to the crowd and gives a confident nod to everyone before giving a side eye to her opponent who is still got his back to her. Camille hands the referee the belt and her music fades as Michaels sees this as his cue.)

Stew-O: Ms. Extreme looks pressed and ready to deny Mark his desire and leave The Guerilla on his back!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Flannery McCoy: Mark Michaels wastes no time! He charges he champion and grabs a hold of her! Mark wrangles her as Ms. Extreme fights to get away. Mark has a huge height, reach, and weight advantage but Camille is talented and smart enough to not let this big fellow get close enough to rag doll her.

Stew-O:Cam kicks Mark in the knee as Michaels favors it a bit before trying to attack again! Ms Extreme side steps him this time as Mark goes running off the ropes. Ms Extreme sees him coming and drops down on her stomach as Mark hops over

Flannery McCoy: WAIT!

Stew-O: NO! Mark sees her counter and reacts expertly with a leaping elbow drop to Ms Extreme!

Flannery McCoy: NO WAIT! REVERSE! Ms Extreme sees his counter to her initial counter and moves out the way before all 240 pounds of Mark Michaels is able to squash her in the middle of the ring! Mark lands on his elbow and bounces back to his feet as Camille stands waiting. Mark charges head first but

Stew-O: MS. EXTREME LEAPS HIGH IN THE AIR! MARK RUNS UNDER HER BUT CAMILLE LATCHES ON AND HITS A SUNSET FLIP!

Flannery McCoy: NO! NOT YET! ANOTHER COUNTER! Camille is on her back holding Mark Michaels waist trying to complete the move but he isn’t budging at all! Mark reaches down and grabs Camille by the head! Michaels SNATCHES Ms Extreme up from the ground into the air and back down to her feet in a smooth but powerful motion!

Stew-O: Mark scoops Camille up in his arms! BODYSLAM! Michaels finally catches Camille after so many counters to start off this PURE Championship match!

Flannery McCoy: Mark Michaels has a lot of anger built up and feels that EAW has treated him unfairly since his return. Mark was given this title shot a few weeks ago by Starr Stan to possibly stop Michaels from attacking and assaulting so many EAW stars such as The Ace Jamie O’Hara!

Stew-O: Jamie O’Hara defeated Mark Michaels when the time came for them to go at it but this could be Mark Michaels chance to get what he’s been rioting and revolting for!

Flannery McCoy: Mark backs all the way in to the rope and leans on them before bouncing off and leaping in the air. KNEE DROP TO THE CHEST OF MS EXTREME!

Stew-O: Michaels put all his weight on to that one as Camille kicks her legs and stomps her feet on the mat. Mark gets to his knee and looks down at Camille shaking his head. Mark grabs her by the back of her head and starts to get up to his feet, dragging her with him. Michaels stands up with a hand full of Red hair as and Extreme swings at him but misses!

Flannery McCoy: Mark spins her around and let’s go of her hair in favor of her waist! Mark hoists Camille up and BACK SUPLEX! Michaels drops the Red Queen flat on her back! Michaels gets back up and snatches up Ms. Extreme by her hair again, it’s like he’s trying to rip it out of her scalp!

Stew-O: I wouldn’t be surprised if that was his intentions, Flannery! Michaels puts her in a suplex position. He hooks her leg…SNAP SHOT! THE BRIDGING FISHERMAN HOOK SUPLEX IN TO A VICIOUS POWER SLAM HITS AS CAMILLE IS BEING TOSSED AROUND AND SLAMMED LIKE A CHEW TOY!

Flannery McCoy: MICHAELS GOES FOR THE COVER!

Ref: ONE!!!

TW-NOOOO!!!

Flannery McCoy: Quick kick out by the champ but it took all her body weight to keep Mark from finishing this match right there!

Stew-O: Ms. Extreme has held that Pute Championship for quite some time and to lose it off a few slams albeit from a very large opponent such as Mark Michaels would have sent this Atlanta, Georgia crowd filled with fans from all over the world home with a bad taste in their mouth!

Flannery McCoy:You got that right Stew! Michaels stands up and grabs Ms Extreme by her ankles towards the middle of the ring. Camille tried to fight back but BAM Mark drives his foot right in to the sternum of the champ! Michaels runs to the ropes and bounces off again ELBOW DROP! It connects this time as all the weight of the 240 pound challenger lands on the chest of Camille!

Stew-O: Mark isn’t satisfied as he gets right back up and goes bouncing off the ropes again and ANOTHER ELBOW DROP TO THE CHEST OF CAMILLE!

Flannery McCoy: Mark is normally more of a tactical expert when it comes to his in ring performances but I think he sees red metaphorically and literally! He’s just slamming his entire body and weight on to Ms. Extreme as he wears down the PURE champion!

Stew-O: Michaels has a 105 pound advantage over there champion! It’s pretty tactical for him to use his weight to ground and pound Camille considering she’s one of the greatest high flyers in the business, Flannery!

Flannery McCoy: Mark gets up a third time and goes for one more charge. ELBOW DR-NO! Ms. Extreme moves out the way before being flattened for a third time! Michaels rolls over to his knees and pops up again.

Stew-O: Ms. Extreme throws everything she has in to a stiff kick to Mark’s gut! Mark bends down and Ms. Extreme locks him up!

Flannery McCoy: TWIST OF FATE!!!

Stew-O: NO! As Camille turns to hit the cutter, Michaels shoves her right out of the way and in to the ropes! Ms. Extreme bounces off and sprints right back at Michaels who tosses her in the air! He catches her on his right shoulder! SPINERBUSTER!

Flannery McCoy: MICHAELS CATCHES CAMILLE WITH A HEAD SNAPPING SPINEBUSTER! CAMILLE HAS HAD SPINAL ISSUES THROUGHOUT HER CAREER, STEW-O! Michaels clearly knows this as well! Michaels is all over Camille right now!

Stew-O: All over is right! Mark Michaels mounts Ms. Extreme and stars LAYING IN TO HER! Right hand, left hand, he is mauling the champion in the middle of the ring as the ref warns him about those closed fists!

Flannery McCoy: Ms. Extreme has been a dominant champion and has broken records even before this year’s Pain for Pride XII event…but with how determined Mark looks to destroy her, I can’t help but think this may be the night we see a new PURE champion!

Stew-O: Don’t count out the Red Queen just yet, McCoy! Michaels finally relents and gets to his feet after the persistent ref warned him about those closed fists to Ms. Extreme! Camille is dazed and staggering to her feet. Michaels sees another chance to thrash her and he charges and lifts her right back on to his shoulder! Michaels drives her spine first HARD into the turnbuckle and Ms. Extreme drops down and is now seated in the corner!

Flannery McCoy: This is not the position you want or need to be in! Come on, Camille!

Stew-O: Michaels backs right up and snarls as he does this. Michaels slaps his knee cap! Michaels attacks! KNEE SMASH!!!

Flannery McCoy: NO!!! Ms. Extreme rolls out of the way as Mark bounces off the turnbuckles! He hits his knee but that wasn’t enough to hobble him! Michaels turns looking for Ms. Extreme who is fighting to get up using the ring ropes. Michaels sees her she charges again! CLOTHESLINE!

Stew-O: NO! Ms. Extreme pulls down the top rope as Mark goes tumbling out of the ring and on to the floor! Michaels lands on his feet! The Lethal Injection stands ringside checking making sure he didn’t hurt anything before turning around and facing the ring. WOAH!

Flannery McCoy: SUICIDE DIVE FROM INSIDE THE RING TO OUTSIDE BY MS. EXTREME TO MARK MICHAELS AS THEY BOTH HIT THE RING SIDE FLOOR HARD!

Ref: ONE!! TWO!!!

Stew-O: Ms. Extreme is just that…EXTREME! She isn’t going to be able to just toss Mark around with her variations of duplexes that she has mastered. But, her high flying ability will need to be her advantage and dives like that can hurt her a lot but will definitely hurt Mark just as much if not more! Camille gets up, hand on the apron, clutching her ribs. She slaps the ring apron and shouts!

Ms. Extreme: LETS FUCKIN’ GO!

Ref: THREE!! FOUR!!

Flannery McCoy: The crowd has gone from booing the dominating Mark Michaels to cheering on their PURE champion!

Crowd: “MISS EX-TREME! MISS EX-TREME! MISS EX-TREME!”

Stew-O: She’s finally got some offense going!

Ref: FIVE!! SIX!!

Flannery McCoy: Ms Extreme stomps away at Mark before looking back in the ring and hearing the referee’s count continues. She rolls in under the bottom rope and back out as he is forced to reset his count!

Ref: ONE!!! TWO!!

Stew-O: Ms. Extreme watches Mark start to get up and cracks him in the face with an elbow! She hits him again and again as Michaels eats those blows to the jaw! Camille grabs him by the wrist and Irish whips him-

Flannery McCoy: NO! Mark plants his feet and uses his strength once again! Michaels reverses it and Irish whips Camille to the barricade! Michaels runs behind her!

Stew-O: WAIT! MS. EXTREME HOPS ON TO THE BARRICADE! She quickly turns as Michaels stops midway! SHE LEAPS OFF THE BARRICADE AND CONTORTS IN THE AIR!

Ref: THREE!! FOUR!!

Flannery McCoy: FLYING SPINNING HEEL KICK!!!

Stew-O: SHE CRACKS MICHAELS RIGHT IN THE MOUTH!

Flannery McCoy: Mark is down and out again ringside!!

Ref: FIVE!! SIX!!!

Stew-O: Ms. Extreme gets up and slaps the ring apron again as fans ringside are going nuts at how quickly she counters her challenger!

Ref: SEVEN!! EIGHT!!!

Stew-O: Camille hears the referee and rolls in to the ring and back out once more before his count reaches ten! The ref starts over once more as Camille stands on her feet staring down at Michaels, crawling away from her!

Ref: ONE!! TWO!!

Flannery McCoy: Michaels places his hand on the barricade to pull himself up and-

Stew-O: BAM! MS. EXTREME HOPS ON THE BARRICADE AND THEN STOMPS ON HIS FINGERS! MARK IS SCREAMING AS MS. EXTREME PUTS HER WHOLE FOOT ON HIS HAND AND TRAPS HIM THERE! MICHAELS SCREAMS AND PULLS AS HARD AS HE CAN TO GET FREE!

Ref: THREE!! FOUR!!

Flannery McCoy: MS. EXTREME LETS HIM GO BY LIFTING HER FOOT! Mark is shaking his hand back and forth, back to the champion, checking to see if he has any broken fingers!

Ref: FIVE!! SIX!!

Stew-O: Mark turns back around as Ms. Extreme stands on the barricade before crouching and leaping forward in the air!

Flannery McCoy: WOW! DRAGONRANA FROM THE CHAMP TO MARK MICHAELS! THE BIG FELLA GOES FLIPPING IN THE AIR RINGSIDE, LANDING FLAT ON HIS BACK AS MS. EXTREME ROLLS TO HER FEET, ROLLS BACK IN TO THE RING, AND GETS TO HER FEET!

Ref: SEVEN!! EIGHT!!

Stew-O: Ms Extreme is in the middle of the ring and…she takes a bow! Mark crawls towards the ring and puts his hand in the apron as he gets to one knee! Michaels is grimacing, clutching his back! The crowd gives a standing ovation for that exchange from Ms. Extreme, and can you blame them?! I feel like clapping after that!

Ref: NINE!!

Flannery McCoy: Ms. Extreme could just stand there and get the win! But…SHE IS NOT SATISFIED WINNING BY COUNT OUT! CAMILLE SEES MARK MICHAELS PEEKING FROM RINGSIDE AND RUSHES HIM! FEET FIRST!

Stew-O: BASEBALL SLIDE TO MARK MICHAELS FA-

Flannery McCoy: NO! MARK DUCKS THE BASEBALL SLIDE AS CAMILLE FLIES PAST HIM AND THE REFEREE RESETS HIS COUNT AT THE LAST SECOND! Ms.Extreme lands on her feet but is all turned around and has her back facing Michaels! MS. Extreme turns and Mark grabs the back of her head and BAM! OH MY GOD!

Stew-O: OH SHIT…I MEAN GOD! MICHAELS DRIVES MS. EXTREME SKULL FIRST IN TO THE TURNBUCKLE POST RINGSIDE AS THE SOUND OF HER HEAD HITTING THAT STEEL POST ECHOED INSIDE THIS ARENA! MY GOD! A SICKENING THUD THAT WAS!

Ref: ONE!!! TWO!!! THREE!!!

Flannery McCoy: Michaels walks away from Camille who is now face down flat ringside as Mark catches his breath and stares out at the sea of fans booing him for the dirty move!

Ref: FOUR!!! FIVE!!!

Flannery McCoy: Michaels walks to one side of the ring and back and slowly drags Camille to her feet and OH MAN!

Stew-O: BLOOD! BLOOD IS POURING OUT OF HER FOREHEAD! MARK MICHAELS HAS BUSTED OPEN THE EAW PURE CHAMPION!

Ref: SIX!!! SEVEN!!!

Flannery McCoy: The Red Queen is living up to her name as it looks like her eyes rolled into the back of her head my god!

Stew-O: Mark smiles as he sees the blood pouring out of her head and he takes his whole hand and smears it from her face and on to his own chest! This sick, sick man has lost it!

Ref: EIGHT!!! NINE!!! TEN-

Flannery McCoy: MICHAELS ROLLS MS EXTREME IN TO THE RING AND SLIDES IN RIGHT AFTER HER TO STOP THE REFEREE COUNT AGAIN!

Stew-O: Ms. Extreme looks out, man! We need EMTS out here!

Flannery McCoy: The ref is trying to check on her but

Mark Michaels: NO! WE ARE FINISHING THIS MATCH, GET THE FUCK AWAY! IM GOING TO GET WHAT I WANT FOR ONCE!

Stew-O: Michaels is insisting they continue the match by the ref is trying to check on Camille! Michaels drags Ms. Extreme to her feet and

Flannery McCoy: ROLL UP!

Stew-O: Mark Is rolled up and Ms. Extreme tries to desperately turn the momentum with this quick pin attempt!

Ref: ONE!!!

TWO!!!

NO!!!

Flannery McCoy: Michaels fights out of the pun attempt and quickly gets to his feet. Ms. Extreme wipes her hair and blood out of her eyes and balls up her fists as Michaels charges! ELBOW SHOT! Camille hits Mark who backs up for a second but comes right back at her! ELBOW SHOT! Ms. Extreme is throwing everything she has in to these blows and Michaels is just shaking them off!

Stew-O: Ms. Extreme throws a kick to the gut of Mark but he catches her foot immediately! Michaels has her hopping on one leg as he screams at her!

Mark Michaels: YOUR REIGN IS OVER TONIGHT, BITCH! ALL HAIL THE RED QUE-!

CRACK!!!

Flannery McCoy: ENZIGURI TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD! MS. Extreme drops Mark to one knee! She rushes in and wraps her arms around his head!

TWIST OF FATE!!!

Stew-O: SHE NAILS IT! CAMILLE NAILS MARK MICHAELS WITH THE TWIST OF FATE CUTTER THAT HAS HIM DOWN AND OUT!

Flannery McCoy: Ms. Extreme looks down as she is woozy from all the blood she has been losing. She stares at Mark who is on his back trying to figure out what happened! She sees her chance!

Stew-O: She’s using all her strength to drag him in his leg to the center of the ring! SHE TURNS HIM OVER AND HOOKS HIM!

AVA LOCK!!!

Flannery McCoy: AVA LOCK!!! AVA LOCK!! THE MOVE THAT HAS MADE MEN AND WOMEN TAP ALL OVER THE GLOBE! MODIFIED STF AS MARK IS STUCK IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING!

Stew-O: NOWHERE TO GO!

Flannery McCoy: NOWHERE TO RUN TO!

Stew-O: The referee is asking Mark how much more he can take as Camille locks in that STF as tight as she can! Blood dripping from her head down to Mark’s as he drags and reaches for the ropes! He struggles, he fights! Mark gets to a push up position but Ms. Extreme is not letting go!

Flannery McCoy: Mark is screaming in pain!

Ms. Extreme: TAP! TAP!

Crowd: TAP!! TAP!! TAP!!

Stew-O: Michaels is tapping!

Flannery McCoy: WAIT, NO! HE SLAPPED THE MAT OUT OF FRUSTRATION BE HE IS DRAGGING BOTH HIMSELF AND MS. EXTREME TO THE ROPES! CAMILLE PULLS BACK EVEN MORE AS MARK’S BODY IS BENDING IN WAYS NO MAN SHOULD BE BENT!

Stew-O: MICHAELS IS DESPERATELY FIGHTING…TO…REACH….

Flannery McCoy: HE GRABS IT! Mark grabs the rope! The fans are booing because they wanted to see that man tap out but he fights on! Ms. Extreme looks exhausted! A PURE Champion like no other but with as much blood she is losing, she has to find a way to end this quick because the longer this goes on her chances of retaining her at Pain for Pride XII begin to drop!

Stew-O: Mark is slow to get up but Ms. Extreme isn’t. She looks like a bloody mess but a look of determination appears on her face! She’s huffing, she’s puffing…The Red Queen looks to the corner and sees her chance! She climbs the turnbuckle!

Flannery McCoy: Mark is fighting to stay in this but that Ava Lock has HIM looking depleted as well. Michaels gets to his feet and turns around…DIVING CALF KICK TO MARK MICHAELS AS THE CROWD GOES NUTS!

Stew-O: NO!!!

Flannery McCoy: MICHAELS CATCHES HER IN MID-AIR! HE LIFTS HER UP HIGH! BACKBREAKER OVER HIS KNEE! LIKE BANE IN THE DARK KNIGHT RISES! MS. EXTREME AND THAT SPINE THAT HAS SUFFERED CAREER CHANGING INJURIES BEND IN A HORRIFIC FASHION OVER MARK’S KNEE!

Stew-O: Michaels falls backwards onto his butt as Ms. Extreme crumbles into a bloody mess in the middle of the ring. Mark sees the amount of blood Ms. Extreme is losing and looks down at his own hands. Covered in blood just like the ring and his opponent!

Flannery McCoy: Red hair, red blood, red eyes in Mark’s head as he sees his moment right before him!

Stew-O: Michaels slowly gets up to his feet, a stoic and calm look on his face as the aggression from the beginning stages of this match look gone. He looks…somberly at the champion, in a broken and bloody mess!

Flannery McCoy: Ms. Extreme is in great pain, crawling away from the behemoth that’s standing over her! She reaches the corner and climbs to the top with only her hands, clutching at her back, wiping the profusely pouring blood out of her eyes so she can even see where she is! Michaels still quietly stalks her, the fans are speechless!

Stew-O: You could hear a pin drop as horror befalls this audience here in Mercedes Benz arena on this Pain for Pride XII weekend!

(Michaels stands right behind Camille as she turns around and is staring upward at the man looking to end her historic PURE title reign!)

Stew-O: ELBOW SHOT! Camille is fighting! ELBOW SHOT!

Flannery McCoy: THAT’S TWO IN A ROW! SHE HAS TO GET OUT OF THIS CORNER!

Stew-O: MICHAELS EATS A THIRD ELBOW SHOT BEFORE!

Flannery McCoy: HEADBUTT! RIGHT TO THAT OPEN CUT!

Stew-O: MY GOD HER BLOOD IS SMEARED ON MARK’S FACE! WAIT! I THINK HE OPENED HIMSELF UP, TOO! A SMALL TRICKLE OF BLOOD DRIPS FROM HIS OWN FOREHEAD AS MS. EXTREME FALLS BACKWARDS INTO THE CORNER AND MICHAELS STAGGERS A BIT HIMSELF!

Flannery McCoy: This man is crazy!

Stew-O: Michaels shakes off the likely concussion and continues on…

Flannery McCoy: KICK TO THE FACE! MICHAELS EATS A KICK TO THE FACE FROM MS. EXTREME!

Stew-O: CAMILLE SEES HER OPENING! MARK TRIES TO STOP HER WITH A RIGHT HAND TO THE FACE! WAIT!

Flannery McCoy: SHE DUCKS AND GRABS HIS WRIST! SHE PUSHES OUT OF THE TURNBUCKLE CORNER AND BRINGS MICHAELS WITH HER! THEY ROLL OUT OF THE CORNER AND IN TO THE CENTER OF THE RING! SHE CAUGHT HIM!

RED HANDED!!!!

Stew-O: CAMILLE IS TRYING WITH ALL HER MIGHT TO LOCK IN THAT SEATED FUJIWARA ARM BAR BUT SHE CAN’T QUITE GET MARK IN POSITION TO…

Flannery McCoy: MICHAELS ROLLS OUT OF THE RED HANDED SUBMISSION! MS. EXTREME STAGGERS TO HER FEET…

HEADBUTT!!!

Stew-O: ANOTHER HEADBUTT FROM MICHAELS TO MS. EXTREME AND SHE FALLS BACKWARDS FLAT ON HER BACK AS HER ARMS FLAIL IN THE AIR! MARK LOOKS WOOZY AS HIS CUT OPENS UP EVEN MORE!

Flannery McCoy: MARK SHAKES HIS HEAD, BLOOD DRIPPING DOWN HIS FACE! HE LOOKS DOWN AT CAMILLE AND ISN’T THE TACTICAL MARK MICHAELS WE KNOW! HE MOVES ON INSTINCT AS HE RUNS TO THE RING ROPES AND CHARGES BACK!

Stew-O: KNEE DROP TO THE HEAD! MS. EXTREME LOOKS OUT COLD!

Flannery McCoy: Mark rolls her over onto her front…WAIT…

THE LIBERATION HAS BEGUN!!!

Stew-O: THE LEBELL LOCK!!! MARK SINKS IN HIS LEBELL LOCK FINISHER AS THE CAMERA ZOOMS IN ON MS. EXTREME’S FACE! SHE LOOKS KNOCKED OUT AS THE BLOOD POURS MORE AND MORE! THE REFEREE CHECKS ON HER BUT MARK ISNT LETTING GO! SHE HAS NOWHERE TO GO!

Flannery McCoy: MARK IS FOAMING AT THE MOUTH! MS. EXTREME’S EYES ARE CLOSED! THE REF GRABS HER WRIST! HE LIFTS IT UP! HE LETS TO AND IT HITS THE MAT!!!

Ref: ONE!!!

Stew-O: MS. EXTREME NEEDS HELP! REF RAISING HER HAND ONCE AGAIN!! HE LETS IT GO! IT SLAPS THE MAT AGAIN!

Ref: TWO!!!

Flannery McCoy: C’MON CAMILLE! NOT LIKE THIS!!!

Stew-O: The Red is begrudgingly reaching for her wrist again as Mark pulls back again on that Lebell Lock! HE LIFTS HER HAND! HE LETS GO!

Ref: THREE!!!!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Flannery McCoy: HE DID IT! HE ENDED THE REIGN OF THE RED QUEEN!

Stephie Love: HERE IS YOUR WINNER!!!

(Mark still holds the submission as the referee throws up the X and turns to see him not letting go.)

Stew-O: C’MON REF GET HIM OFF HER GOD DAMN IT SHE IS DEFENSELESS! THE MATCH IS OVER!

Stephie Love: AND NEEEEEEEW EAW PURE CHAMPION!!

(Stew-O is furious as is the entire PFP crowd as Mark seemingly refused to let the submission go. Michaels realizes the match is over as “Just cos’ you got Power” by Motörhead plays. Michaels is pried away finally and gets to his feet as fans stand together and boo him in unison.)

Stew-O: THIS MAN IS SICK!

Stephie Love: MAAAAAARRRRRRRK MMMMIIIIICHAAAAEEELLLLLLLLLSSSS!!!!!

Stew-O: Somebody check on Camille!

Flannery McCoy: It’s okay Stew-o…Ms. Extreme will be fine…I hope! She’s been through everything and continues survive but after that turnbuckle shot that caused her to start bleeding, he reign was on borrowed time!

Stew-O: She’s one of the toughest wrestlers in EAW history and Mark one this match fair and square. But, god this vendetta he has against EAW…against the fans…he has taken his aggression and revenge tour here to Pain for Pride XII and dethroned the longest reigning PURE Champion tonight!

Flannery McCoy: Mark took advantage of Camille’s obvious concussion and kept at her at every turn. Ms. Extreme pulled out high flying moves and even the infamous Ava lock but Mark wasn’t going to be stopped by a bleeding Red Queen!

Stew-O: He ended up bleeding himself but by then it was nothing compared to what Camille had shed. The match may be a classic to some but I don’t think Mark cares about that. Mark Michaels got what he has wanted for so long and he is our new PURE Champion!

(Michaels holds the PURE Championship in both hands as he walks to the ring ropes and raises it high above his head and lets out a roar to the crowd. EMTS and the referee himself assist Ms. Extreme and help her to her feet. She is conscious but it’s clear she doesn’t remember what just happened. She turns, seeing Mark Michaels celebrate as she lowers her head and realize what occurred. She has her arm over the shoulders of the referee and the doctor as they help her up the ramp.)

Stew-O: The fans watch as The Extreme Face of Elite Answer’s Wrestling heads to the back…and the new PURE Champion stands tall. He wanted it and he got it…Mark fucking Michaels ladies and gentlemen!

(The camera fades from the ringside area and cuts backstage. The flawless Veena Adams is seen standing at a monitor with her fellow Voltage Co-Commissioner, Matt Daniels. Matt is finally off crutches, but he’s still not completely healed from the groin injury he suffered back at Fighting Spirit. Both of them are dressed to the nines, as you would expect for Pain for Pride. If Veena is still angry over not getting a chance to have her own Pain for Pride moment yesterday, she has recovered. She wears a smile on her face as she turns to Matt.)

Veena Adams: If there’s one thing you and I can agree on when it comes to the Draft next weekend, it’s that we do not want Mark Michaels anywhere on Voltage.

Matt Daniels: I agree. I’ll be honest. I love everything that the PURE Championship represents, but I’m not sure if the headache that comes with it will be worth it.

(Veena rolls her eyes.)

Veena Adams: The value of the PURE Championship diminished the second Camille Jane Ava got her cunty hands on it. You know how I feel about the dirty little whores that parade around this company pretending to be wrestlers. She definitely got what she deserved tonight and even if Mark is holding the belt now, at least it’s being held by a man.

(Veena narrows her eyes at Matt.)

Veena Adams: I was very busy last week on Voltage, but don’t think I missed your little speech about the women of Empire being welcomed to Voltage with open arms. I don’t want any of those sluts on my roster. They are brand killers, as evidenced by the fact their horrific attitudes got their own show cancelled. And I know these bitches. They’re going to have massive fucking chips on their shoulders. I don’t have the time or patience to deal with nasty entitled attitudes and personally, we should just leave them all to rot on Dynasty and Showdown.

Matt Daniels: The women of Empire are some of the best athletes we have in this company. So far, they have dominated Pain for Pride and won nearly all their matches. There’s nothing wrong with Intergender wrestling and giving women the opportunity to compete for all the championships we have here in EAW. It wouldn’t surprise me if Voltage has a female representative competing for the world championship next year at Pain for Pride.

(Veena touches her hand to heart and throws up a little.)

Veena Adams: The day a bitch competes for the world championship on behalf of Voltage while under my match is the day this company deserves to die. I’ll be damned if those fucking ring rats take a spot that is only fit for a king.

Matt Daniels: Well I hate to break it to you, Veena, but I’ve already decided who I’m fighting for in the draft. There are several names from Empire at the top of my list and I won’t hesitate to select the people I feel embody my vision for this brand.

(Veena takes a deep breath and purses her lips.)

Veena Adams: That’s a decision we are supposed to make together and don’t think I won’t get on the phone and call my Uncle Ryan and have him veto whatever fucking deals you try to put together behind my back. Voltage is the home of Kings… not cunts.

Matt Daniels: Voltage is the home of the Elite, Veena.

Veena Adams: I’m warning you, Matty. Don’t start a war you know you can’t win. You’ve already lost two. Your beloved Rex failed you at Fighting Spirit, and Scott Diamond failed you tonight against Lethal Consequences.

Matt Daniels: And if I were you, I wouldn’t make threats with no actual basis. You went above and beyond to get Xavier and Cameron’s match cancelled, but all it took was a phone call to ‘Uncle Ryan’ and that match happened. I know how to play this game and I’ve done it a hell of a lot longer than you, little girl. You might have had it easy so far, but after the draft, all bets are off. The landscape of Voltage is changing, and so is EAW as a whole. You’re going to have to deal with it, or I will do whatever I can to get you removed from power.

(Matt winks at Veena and slowly walks off. The heiress has a shocked look on her face, almost as if she can’t believe Matt just spoke to her like that. After a few seconds, Veena recovers and lifts her chin the air.)

Veena Adams: Bully.

(The scene fades back to ringside.)

CJ Hana: It’s time for the Day 2 main event, Gavin! We began this rivalry with believing that Sienna Jade was going to be defending her Women’s World Championship against the 2019 Women’s Grand Rampage Winner, Serena Bennett, but instead, both women will be fighting for a chance to call themselves the first Universal Women’s Champion!

Gavin Kirkland: I’m excited about this match, CJ! Empire has stolen the show so far and this match will be no different! Let’s take a closer look at what made this match possible!

(The video package begins with Sienna Jade overcoming Madison Kaline and Astraea Jordan at King of Elite and becoming Women’s World Champion. It shows her overcoming Cleopatra at the Iconic Cup and then Raven Roberts at Grand Rampage. Meanwhile, shows Serena Bennett coming into the Women’s Grand Rampage at number one. It shows Serena just killing it in the match; it shows her eliminating women like Minerva, Tyler Wolfe and Felix Hartley and solidifying her place at Pain for Pride.

It shows Sienna retaining against Raven Roberts and Tyler Wolfe in controversial ways. It pans to the Empire after Terminus. Sienna stating that she was never in cahoots with anyone, that she earned her opportunities herself because that’s what she does. It goes to Serena Bennett cutting in the promo, reflecting in her evolution over the past six months. Starting as a FOX Assistant to winning the Specialists Championship to winning the Women’s Grand Rampage to now main eventing Pain for Pride. She states that someone like her was never supposed to be headlining Pain for Pride, but here she is.

It shows Sienna’s retorts, not really taking Serena seriously — just belittling her and mocking her. The two women have their exchange of words as Sienna plans to exit the ring in anger, but Veena Adams comes out and states that post Pain for Pride, it just won’t be the Empire Tag Team Championships that are going to be dead, but the Women’s World Championship as well and they will introduce a new championship — the Universal Women’s Championship. Both of the women look at each other with glares as they realized that the stakes are higher. Who will be the first Universal Women’s Champion: Sienna Jade or Serena Bennett?)

(The camera pans into ring side with Maria Del Rey already in the ring.)

Maria Del Rey: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN…PLEASE WELCOME AT THIS TIME…THREE-TIME VIXENS CHAMPION AND EAW HALL OF FAMER … SABINA!!

(The crowd cheers. The camera cuts to EAW Hall of Famer, Sabina in the ring. Sabina has a huge smile on her face. She knows how historic this moment is. She knows what this moment means for women’s wrestling in general. Next to her is a podium. On top of the podium rests the new Universal Women’s Championship, but it’s covered in a red cloth at the moment.)

Sabina: Over the past twelve years, it’s amazing how much this women’s division has evolved. Going back to the first Pain for Pride, there was only one women’s match on the card. Fast forward twelve years later, you see that women are playing a major part in every FPV. Women are stealing the show. Women are putting on great matches — sometimes, better than some of the men in the back. But, in this women’s revolution, we started with the Vixens Championship — a championship held by women such as myself, Kendra Shamez, Cameron Ella Ava and Cleopatra. As women’s wrestling was reaching its peak, we began to realize that the term “Vixens” doesn’t do us justice. We deserved to be treated as Elitists. Thus, the Women’s World Championship was born. It was a championship with a bunch of hope. It symbolized a shift a women’s wrestling and we hoped that it was going to be led to greatness. But, with most of the champions that held that title, it almost seemed like a curse was brought upon it since the first champion. Besides two of the women that have held the championship, the championship history consisted of women, who didn’t fit the qualities that a female Elitists should be. We decided that we needed a clean slate. We couldn’t just eliminate all these bad names from the Women’s World Championship history. They’re in the history books no matter what. But, we can always start fresh.

Sabina: Women have made their impact in music, television, movies and most importantly, sports.Women have made their way into a male dominated sport. They took their titles and they taken accomplishments that were male dominated and made it theirs for the taking. We thought the world was too small for these women to get. With these women, it seemed like they’ve already got the world in the palm of their hands. They’ve conquered it in many ways possible. But, women don’t deserve the world. They deserve the universe. :wow: Now without further ado, I will introduce you the symbol of women’s wrestling in Elite Answers Wrestling. Ladies and gentlemen, I introduce you to the Universal Women’s Championship!

(Sabina takes the red cloth off and reveals the Universal Women’s Championship!)

CJ Hana: That title looks amazing!

Gavin Kirkland: That title is going to look great on Sienna Jade!

Sabina: The winner of Sienna Jade and Serena Bennett will call themselves the very first Universal Women’s Championship and be awarded this championship! Good luck to both of you women! Break a leg!

(Sabina takes the championship and exits the ring. She takes a seat next to Maria Del Rey. Sabina places the title in a podium next to her as everyone waits for the entrances.)

(The arena goes dark as camera turns to focus on the Pain for Pride stage where two young women sporting white “Spelman College” t-shirts stand at the top of the ramp. They’re smiling wide with their arms folded behind their backs, blushing as the crowd pops for the students of one of Atlanta’s local schools.)

Maria Del Rey: Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome…the women of Atlanta’s own…SPELMAAAAAAN COLLLEGGEEE!

(The crowd pops as the students turn their backs to the audience and reveal large greek letters on the back of their shirts: A. K. A. The pink and green Alpha Kappa Alpha crest flashes on the titantron, and the Atlanta crowd cheers some more for the students of one of Atlanta’s HBCU and the sisters of the first sorority established by African-American college women. :wow: )

(The instrumental score for “Formation” by Beyonce begins to play, but only the iconic first two notes are on repeat. Suddenly, more young women pour out onto the stage, dancing out onto the stage The ladies of the “Sweet” Mu Pi Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. each taking their designated positions onto the stage while dancing along to the “Formation” instrumental intro. All of the Spelman College students wear matching pink jackets with green AKA lettering. Pink and green lights bouncing around the arena as bright white lights flash as well.)

(Once in their V formation ( :mjgrin: ) on stage, a single drum beat plays and “Formation” ends abruptly. The colorful lights dancing around the arena also hold still, and the flashing stops. All of the sorors bow their head as the crowd gives a round of applause.)

Soror: SKEEEEE-WEE!

(After her signal, the women of Alpha Kappa Alpha begin a flawlessly choreographed step routine, the audience in the arena absolutely in awe as the women create intricate rhythms and sounds using their bodies by stomping their feet, clapping their hands, and slapping their chests, legs, and arms. Their stepping is accompanied by a popular Alpha Kappa Alpha chant.)

Sorors: ♪ You wish you had a nickle, you wish you had a dime ♪
♪ You wish you had an AKA to love you all the time! ♪
♪ You wish you had a quarter, you wish you had a dollar ♪
♪ You wish you had an AKA to make you scream and holler! ♪
♪ They want some skee-wee, skee-wee, ♪
♪ *SKEEEEEEE*-WEE! ♪

Gavin Kirkland: CJ—

CJ Hana: Gavin, don’t you dare—

Gavin Kirkland: Are they singing about SKEET? :picard:

CJ Hana: :snoop:

Gavin Kirkland: What good is watching a college girl dance if I can’t slap her ass and throw singles at her?

(As the step team’s choreography progresses, the fans in the arena notice that the beat they’re starting to form sounds somewhat familiar. The fans pick up they are now being accompanied by the Spelman College marching band who have started playing the intro to “Surfin’ by Kid Cudi as they walk out onto the stage, prompting the crowd to cheer. The drums are pounding, the trumpets have started blaring, and the brass horns are tooting. The extended live cover of the “Surfin’” intro plays out until the marching band splits, allowing Serena Bennett to step slowly onto the stage, wearing an “AKA” t-shirt of her own, matched with baby pink and green ring gear.)

(Serena smiles wide, flashing her pearly whites and showing off her new **purple hair** as the Spellman band lines up down either side of the ramp. The camera gets a 360-pan angle on Serena on stage, and then follows her as she walks down the ramp. She pinches at the collar of her AKA t-shirt and smiles.)

Serena Bennett: (off-mic) This right here is what it’s aaaallll about.

(Serena skips down the stage happily, not afraid to take a moment here and there to pause and dance along with the marching band’s music. She eventually reaches the ring, pausing again to stare outward at the capacity crowd who cheers. She jumps onto the apron and poses against the ropes before stepping in between them.)

CJ Hana: What a way to make an entrance! Serena Bennett making big waves here tonight as she walks into her DEBUT Pain for Pride match!

Gavin Kirkland: And Sienna Jade will bring a screening halt to this washed up delinquent’s momentum for good. Sienna Jade is walking out of this one the INAUGURAL Universal Women’s Champion. And I wouldn’t wanna see it any other way.

(As Serena plays up to the crowd while in the ring, the camera gives the Spelman marching band some more love as they finish up the “Surfin’” instrumental. Once they finish, the crowd cheers wildly, showing their appreciation for the musical performance. The camera cuts back to Serena who has since placed her AKA shirt in a safe place and awaits the champion in the middle of the ring.)

(“Unfuckwithable” by Deez Nuts play through the speakers. The cheers for Serena Bennett have transformed into boos for the Women’s World Champion Sienna Jade. Sienna Jade comes out in Pain for Pride colors, but her signature ring attire. She has on her leather jacket with “UNFUCKWITHABLE” in the back. The Women’s World Championship is on her waist. Sienna takes in the scenery that is Pain for Pride. She knows how important this match is to her. She knows that last year didn’t fall in her favor, but she vows to make sure that this year is a completely different story.)

Gavin Kirkland: MY PICK TO BECOME THE FIRST UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPION! IT SHOULD BE EVERYONE’S PICK! Sienna Jade has been a champion that EAW should be proud of! She has taken on each challenger and embraced the obstacles around her! It’s been an emotional rollercoaster of a season for her. She always wondered where her EAW run was going to take her next, but it leads her into walking into the main event of Pain for Pride for the second year in a row!

CJ Hana: The last two of Sienna Jade’s title defenses have had some sort of controversy around them! The idea that she is walking in this main event over women like Tyler Wolfe and Raven Roberts is mind blowing to some people, but Sienna has proven that she is talented! She is a woman, who EAW should embrace as the face of the women’s division!

Gavin Kirkland: As she should, CJ! Sienna Jade is ruthless and cunning as they come! She takes a bunch of smack, but she has been able to back it up in the ring every time! This time won’t be different!

(“Unfuckwithable” dies down. Maria Del Rey is standing between Sienna Jade and Serena Bennett. The spotlights shine on all three of them.)

Maria Del Rey: THE FOLLOWING MATCH IS YOUR DAY TWO MAIN EVENT..

(Crowd cheers.)

Maria Del Rey: …AND IT’S TO CROWN THE INAUGURAL UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPION! INTRODUCING FIRST…THE CHALLENGER … FROM COMPTON, CALIFORNIA … SHE IS THE WINNER OF THE 2019 WOMEN’S GRAND RAMPAGE … SEEEEEEERRRRRREEEEEEEEEEEENNNNNNNNNAAAAAAAAA BEEEEEENNNNNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEETTTTTTTTTTTTT!!

(Serena Bennett poses for the crowd confidently. Sienna Jade is waiting for her introduction. The Women’s World Champion looks quite confident in herself.)

Maria Del Rey: INTRODUCING HER OPPONENT … FROM SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA … SHE IS THE ELITE ANSWERS WRESTLING WOMEN’S WORLD CHAMPION … “UNFUCKWITHABLE” … SIEEEEEENNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNAAAAAAAAAA JAAAAAAAAAAADDDDDDDDDDEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

(The crowd boos at the Women’s World Champion, but Sienna Jade couldn’t give a damn. She raises the Women’s World Championship high in the air before pointing at the Universal Women’s Championship that is resting on a pedestal, stating that she’s gonna replace the title she has now with that one. Sienna holds onto the Women’s World Championship one last time before handing it off to Marti Solo. As soon as Marti gets the title out of the ring, she checks to see if both women are ready to compete. Both of them nod as the bell rings!)

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Gavin Kirkland: THE EMPIRE MAIN EVENT IS UNDERWAY! CJ, I HAVE GOOSEBUMPS! THIS IS ONE OF THE FOUR MAIN EVENTS THAT EAW HAS BEEN WAITING FOR! Sienna Jade captured the Women’s World Championship at King of Elite back in February by defeating then champion Madison Kaline and the Empress of Elite Astraea Jordan! After a seven month struggle to reach the top of the mountain again, Sienna was able to do that! She has overcome various contenders — Cleopatra, Raven Roberts and Tyler Wolfe! The woman, who stands in our way is nothing more than the traitor, who got fired from FOX after losing at Road to Redemption! I think Sienna Jade will defeat Serena Bennett! Sienna has carried that championship for about four months! There is no way that she is going to lose to Serena! I will not stand for it, CJ! Sienna needs to not only prove to herself, but to everyone around the world that she can defeat someone without controversy! She can defeat someone without assistance!

CJ Hana: Don’t cut out Serena Bennett, Gavin! Serena has been one of the fastest rising stars that we have ever seen in Elite Answers Wrestling! This woman debuted as an assistant for Stephon Hunte! Her debut match was at Road to Redemption as she made it to the final two next to Andrea Valentine. Despite losing that match, she managed to impress a lot of people in the arena! This woman managed to keep herself undefeated for four months! At King of Elite, she managed to shock the world by capturing the Specialists Championship! After losing the title, there was quite a few people, who believed that her hype had died and that it would take a while for her to bounce back, but she managed to win the first-ever Women’s Grand Rampage Match! She won the match at number one, Gavin! I can’t recall in our twelve year history, if something like that has ever happened! Serena earned her way into this championship match! Despite what is thrown in Serena’s way, she is able to conquer it and bounce back! If there is anyone with a clear shot of defeating Sienna, it is Serena!

(The crowd is electric in the Mercedes-Benz Stadium. Both Serena Bennett and Sienna Jade look around the crowd. Despite which woman they like or dislike, they just want the woman to give a memorable match. They want to woman to remind people why they are main event. Why they are apart of the brand with some of the most intense competition in this company. Out of the four Pain for Pride main events, they want to make sure that people remember theirs when looking back at this FPV.)

Gavin Kirkland: The two women vying to become the very first Universal Women’s Champion circle around before lock up and starting this match! Serena Bennett has a waist lock on Sienna Jade, but Sienna manages to shift herself a bit before taking down Serena with a headlock takedown! But, Sienna manages to get to one knee as she continues to apply a headlock on the challenger! Serena pushes Sienna away from her. In the process, she gets the headlock off of her! Before Sienna could clash against the ropes front first, Sienna manages to catch herself! Serena runs towards Sienna, but Sienna connects with a back elbow shot to Serena Bennett! Serena stumbles back in response, but doesn’t stumble back for long! Serena goes right after Sienna Jade, but Sienna manages to lift Serena up and throw her outside of the ring!

CJ Hana: NO! SERENA BENNETT MANAGES TO CATCH HERSELF ON THE APRON! SIENNA TURNS HERSELF AROUND TO FACE SERENA, BUT RIGHT AWAY, SERENA CONNECTS WITH A ROUNDHOUSE KICK TO SIENNA JADE! SIENNA STUMBLES BACK AS SERENA BOUNCES FROM THE ROPES TO CONNECT WITH SOME FLYING DOUBLE KNEES TO SIENNA’S FACE! THIS KNOCKS DOWN THE CHAMPION AS SERENA GOES FOR THE FIRST COVER IN THIS MATCH!

Marti Solo: …ONE! TW—

Gavin Kirkland: Sienna Jade kicks out quickly! Serena Bennett gets back to a vertical base! Sienna does the same thing shortly after! Serena gets a few forearms to the back of Sienna! SIENNA FALLS TO ONE KNEE! SERENA TAKES A FEW STEPS BACK! SERENA RUNS! MOONLIGHT ON THE WOMEN’S WORLD CHAMPION! THE RUNNING NECKBREAKER TAKES SIENNA DOWN! SERENA TAKES A FEW STEPS BACK ONCE AGAIN! IT SEEMS LIKE THE TRAITOR IS GOING TO GO FOR ANOTHER MOONLIGHT, BUT SIENNA SAW THAT COMING! SIENNA TURNS HERSELF AROUND AS CONNECTS WITH A SIDE HAND CHOP TO THE CHEST OF SERENA! THIS TOO SERENA BENNETT OFF GUARD! Sienna rises to her feet as she connects with another side hand chop on the challenger! Sienna manages to back Serena against the ropes! Sienna connects with a knee to Serena’s ribs before getting her by the neck and connecting with a snapmare! Sienna gets in front of Serena before rebounding off the ropes and connecting with a beautiful shining wizard! BUT, SERENA MANAGES TO MOVE HERSELF TO THE SIDE! SERENA GETS SIENNA BY THE LEG SHE WAS GOING TO CONNECT WITH THE SHINING WIZARD WITH, TURNS THE CHAMPION AROUND BEFORE GETTING SIENNA BY HER GORGEOUS BLONDE LOCKS AND SLAMMING THE BACK OF THE HEAD AGAINST THE CANVAS! SIENNA IS HOLDING THE BACK OF HER HEAD! THAT DID NOT LOOK PLEASANT AT ALL, BUT I GET THE IMPRESSION THAT SHE’LL MAKE A COMEBACK IN THIS MATCH SOON! SERENA RISES TO HER FEET BEFORE GETTING THE CHAMPION TO HER FEET AS WELL!

CJ Hana: Serena Bennett gets Sienna Jade by her arm before walking towards the top turnbuckle! Look at this, Gavin! Serena is being real careful as she begins to tightrope walk on the ropes! She walks on the rope a bit before jumping off it and connecting with a springboard arm drag on Sienna! Serena gets back to her feet! Sienna is seen clutching her right arm! Serena is gesturing for Sienna to give it everything that she has! Sienna runs towards the challenger, but Serena manages to get Sienna by that same right arm before connecting with a hiptoss! Sienna lands harshly in a seated position! Serena connects with a sliding forearm smash! That punch was hard enough to take the champion to her back! Serena pins Sienna’s shoulders to the mat, but Sienna manages to get out of the pin attempt! Both the champion and challenger are to their feet! SIENNA JADE IS HOLDING HER MOUTH, CHECKING TO SEE IF THERE IS BLOOD, BUT SHE IS GOOD FOR THE TIME BEING! SERENA GOES AFTER SIENNA — SOMERSAULT CLOTHESLINE, BUT SIENNA MANAGES TO MOVE TO THE SIDE! SOMEHOW, SERENA BENNETT MANAGES TO CATCH HERSELF BEFORE SHE COULD FALL IN HER FAILED ATTEMPT TO CONNECT WITH THE SOMERSAULT CLOTHESLINE! SERENA TURNS HERSELF AROUND, BUT SIENNA RUNS TOWARDS HER WITH A SPINNING HEEL KICK! For what seems to be the first time in this match, the challenger finds herself to her back! Sienna does not give Serena any time to breathe! She gets on top of the challenger before connecting with some stiff forearms! Sienna Jade is unloading on Serena Bennett!

Gavin Kirkland: YOU SEE, CJ? SIENNA JADE DID MAKE A COMEBACK IN THIS MATCH! I NEVER DOUBTED HER FOR A SECOND! I CANNOT WAIT FOR SIENNA TO TEACH THIS TRAITOR SOME HUMILITY! SIENNA GETS SERENA TO A SEATED POSITION BEFORE TAKING A FEW STEPS BACK! SIENNA RUNS TOWARDS SERENA! KNEE TO THE SKULL OF THE CHALLENGER! SERENA BENNETT FALLS TO HER BACK AS THE CHAMPION GOES FOR THE COVER! WE MAY BE ENDING THIS MAIN EVENT BEFORE 2AM! :wow: :wow: :wow:

Marti Solo: …ONE! TWO!

CJ Hana …Serena Bennett kicks out at two! It seems like this match is not going to end anytime soon, Gavin! Sienna Jade gets to her knees as she is looking at the official and smacking her hands three times, almost teaching her how she should be doing the counts! Sienna shifts her focus back on Serena before getting Serena back to her feet! Serena connects with a few elbow shots to the stomach of Sienna, but Sienna connects with a huge elbow to the back of Serena’s neck! This takes Serena down to one knee in response to that huge elbow! Sienna takes a step back before running towards Serena and connecting with a knee to the side of Serena’s head! Serena falls to her side as Sienna is demanding for Serena to get up! The challenger is slowly rising to her feet, but Sienna runs towards Serena before ramming her back against the corner! Sienna connects with some turnbuckle thrusts on Serena’s stomach! Serena’s back clashes with the corner over and over! SIENNA JADE CONNECTS WITH A SPLIT CORNER FOOT CHOKE ON SERENA BENNETT! THE CHALLENGER HAS HER FEET OFF THE GROUND AS SIENNA HAS THE FOOT CHOKE ON SERENA! IT SEEMS LIKE THE OFFICIAL IS GOING TO NEED TO START A COUNT HERE!

Marti Solo: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FIVE! THAT’S ENOUGH, SIENNA!

Gavin Kirkland: It seems like the official is going to be a little more strict about what happens inside of the ring than outside — if the match ends up going there! The Women’s World Champion releases the hold as Serena drops to her knees! Sienna connects with a boot to Serena’s face as she falls back to the corner! I don’t think I saw that coming at all, but Sienna knows that she cannot let Serena get the upper hand in this match! It’s something that should not be allowed! Sienna begins to stomp away at Serena at the corner! Sienna is out of control with these stomps, but I don’t think she cares at all! She will do what she needs to do to retain! IF THAT MEANS KILL SERENA BENNETT, I AM NOT GOING TO BE OPPOSED TO THAT! BEFORE THE OFFICIAL CAN GET HERSELF INVOLVED OF THE MATCH AGAIN, SIENNA TAKES A STEP BACK! SIENNA HAS HER ARMS UP WHERE THE OFFICIAL CAN SEE THEM! MEANWHILE, SERENA IS USING THE ROPES TO GET HERSELF BACK UP TO HER FEET! AS SOON AS SERENA GETS TO HER FEET, SIENNA RUNS TOWARDS THE CHALLENGER WITH A FLYING FOREARM! SERENA STUMBLES FORWARD AS SIENNA GETS SIENNA IN POSITION BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A SIDEWALK SLAM! SIENNA STAYS THERE FOR THE COVER ON SERENA!

Marti Solo: …ONE! TWO!

CJ Hana: Serena Bennett gets her right shoulder up! The best thing for Sienna Jade not to do is show her frustrations! Each title defense she has been a part of, they have not been easy for her! She has done everything that she needed to do to retain! Sienna gets Serena to a vertical base! Sienna gets a good hold of Serena’s arm before whipping her towards the ropes! SERENA REBOUNDS OFF THOSE ROPES AS SHE RUNS TOWARDS SIENNA — TILT-A-WHIRL HEADSCISSORS TAKEDOWN ON THE CHAMPION! SIENNA JADE GOES SPINNING AROUND! IT SEEMS LIKE SERENA BENNETT FOUND HER OPENING THERE! SIENNA IS SEEN CLUTCHING TO THE BACK OF HER NECK AS SHE RISES BACK TO HER FEET! SERENA SPINS HERSELF AROUND BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A BACK KICK TO SIENNA’S STOMACH! SIENNA BENDS FORWARD IN RESPONSE! SERENA REBOUNDS OFF THE ROPES BEFORE CONNECTING WITH MOONLIGHT! MOONLIGHT TAKES THE WOMEN’S WORLD CHAMPION DOWN! SERENA RISES BACK TO HER FEET! SIENNA DOES THE SAME THING, BUT SERENA IS THERE TO STOP HER WITH ANOTHER MOONLIGHT! SERENA CONNECTS WITH A THIRD MOONLIGHT! THE CROWD IS ANTICIPATING FOR THE FOURTH MOONLIGHT AS SIENNA RISES TO HER FEET — FOURTH MOONLIGHT TO SIENNA! FOUR CONSECUTIVE SPINNING NECKBREAKERS TAKE THE CHAMPION DOWN!

Gavin Kirkland: Come on, Sienna! Once again, it seems like Serena Bennett has gained control of this match! I do not like it one bit, CJ! The last thing we need to do is have Serena as Women’s Champion! No one wants that! Serena dusts her hands off before getting her back to her feet! Serena gets Sienna to her feet before getting her by the arm and whipping her to the corner! Sienna crashes back first against the corner! BY THE LOOK ON HER FACE, YOU CAN SEE THAT WHIP WAS NOT PLEASANT AT ALL! SERENA BENNETT RUNS AFTER SIENNA WITH SOME DOUBLE KNEES TO SIENNA’S CHEST! SERENA STEPS ON THE TOP ROW OF THE CORNER! SERENA BEGINS TO PUNCH THE TOP OF SIENNA’S HEAD! ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FIVE! SIX! SEVEN! EIGHT! NINE! TEN!

CJ Hana: Sienna Jade manages to slide under Serena Bennett’s legs! Serena turns herself around, but Sienna connects with a spinning heel kick to Serena, who was at the top turnbuckle! SERENA FINDS HERSELF SEATED ON THE TOP TURNBUCKLE AS SIENNA GETS ON THE TOP ROPE WITH SERENA! I AM NOT SURE IF I’M GOING TO LIKE WHAT IS GOING TO COME NEXT, GAVIN! NORMALLY, WHEN TWO WRESTLERS ARE ON THE TOP ROPE, NOTHING PRETTY COMES OF IT! I AM NOT SURE WHAT SIENNA HAS PLANNED! :lupe: SIENNA HAS A HOLD OF SERENA BENNETT FROM THE ROPE ROPE AS BOTH WOMEN FLY OFF —

Gavin Kirkland: — SPANISH FLY FROM SIENNA JADE! BOTH OF THESE WOMEN CRASH ONTO THE MAT! THAT WAS ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL SPANISH FLYS THAT I HAVE SEEN FROM ANY OF THE WOMEN! SIENNA WENT HIGH RISK, BUT IT’S ALL FOR THE SAKE OF LEAVING PAIN FOR PRIDE AS THE UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPION! Both of these women are down! The crowd is applauding Sienna Jade for hat beautiful move! We gotta see a replay of that move!

(A slow motion replay of Sienna Jade connecting with a Spanish Fly from the top rope on Serena Bennett and both women crashing down.)

Gavin Kirkland: The crowd is wondering which of these women will get back to their feet? It seems like their question is answered as Sienna Jade slowly rising back to her feet! She knows that she cannot let Serena Bennett get the upper hand in this match! The more offense that Serena gets in this match, the more likely that Sienna will lose this match! Sienna gets Serena to her feet! Sienna gets Serena in position before connecting with a snap suplex on the challenger! Sienna knows that her best move will be to ground Serena! Sienna begins to apply a submission hold on Serena? It seems like we’re going to get a ground straight jacket chokehold on the challenger! This is something I don’t think I have seen from Sienna Jade! BUT, SHE IS DOING SUBMISSION MOVES BETTER THAN SOME OF THE ASIANS ON THE ROSTER AND ESPECIALLY, SERENA BENNETT! SERENA KNOWS THAT SHE IS IN DEEP TROUBLE AT THE MOMENT! JUST QUIT, SERENA! THIS IS NOT WORTH IT! YOU HAD A GOOD RUN! JUST QUIT AND LIVE FOR TOMORROW!

CJ Hana: SERENA BENNETT IS NOT A QUITTER, GAVIN! THIS WOMAN HAS NEVER TAPPED OUT IN HER EAW CAREER! THIS WOMAN WOULD RATHER LOSE CONSCIOUSNESS THAN SUBMIT! SERENA IS CRYING OUT IN PAIN! SHE KNOWS HOW PAINFUL THIS SUBMISSION HOLD IS, BUT SHE IS GOING TO FIGHT THROUGH THE PAIN! She is going to figure out a way to get out of this hold! The crowd in the Mercedes-Benz Stadium is behind Serena Bennett! They are stomping their feet rhythmically! They are hoping that their energy will be enough to rally Serena into making a comeback in this match! Sienna Jade is shaking her head no! She is not going to let the crowd’s energy rub off on Serena! This crowd is behind Serena and Sienna would love nothing more than to disappoint this crowd by retaining her title! Slowly, Sienna begins to lose her grasp on the submission hold! This could be use as a chance for Serena to get out of the hold! Her hands are behind held back and there is no way for Serena to claw to the bottom rope! Sienna feels her grasp loosening — Sienna thinks on the spot — she manages get a backslide pin on the challenger! It seems like Sienna Jade is going to get upset!

Marti Solo: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!!… TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

Gavin Kirkland: Serena Bennett manages to get out of the backslide pin! Sienna Jade through that she was going to get a quick victory here, but that Serena is a tricky, tricky woman! Everyone needs to keep a close eye on her! Serena is on her knees, but Sienna goes right after Serena with a giant knee strike! That knee strike takes down the challenger! I am enjoying Sienna Jade’s attempt in humbling that traitor! It has been the one thing that I have been waiting six months for, CJ! SIX MONTHS! I DESERVE THIS! I DESERVE TO SEE THE DEMISE OF SERENA BENNETT! SIENNA GETS SERENA BY HER UGLY WEAVE! THIS HELPS PICK SERENA UP TO HER FEET!

Sienna Jade (off-mic): YOU’RE NEVER GOING TO DEFEAT ME!

CJ Hana: A HUGE SLAP FROM SIENNA JADE STRIKES THE CHEEK OF SERENA BENNETT! THIS TURNS THE CHALLENGER TO THE SIDE! SIENNA GETS A GRASP ON SERENA’S HAIR! IT SEEMS LIKE THE CHAMPION IS TRASH TALKING HER CHALLENGE, BUT OUR AUDIO IS NOT PICKING IT UP! BY THE LOOK ON SIENNA’S FACE, I THINK IT MAY BE BEST NOT TO KNOW WHAT IS BEING SAID. :lupe: Sienna connects with another huge slap across Serena’s cheek! And another one! But, Serena connects with a huge slap of her own across the cheek of Sienna Jade! This startles the champion, but Serena connects with another vicious slap! Serena straightens herself up as she goes after Sienna! Serena Bennett with a bulldog on Sienna! Serena rolls over Sienna to her back! IT SEEMS LIKE THE CHALLENGER IS GOING TO GO FOR TRAP QUEEN — THE ARM TRAP TRIANGLE CHOKEHOLD! SIENNA COULD FIND HERSELF IN SERIOUS TROUBLE RIGHT NOW!

Gavin Kirkland: Sienna Jade manages to roll herself out of the ring! Sienna is in front of the commentator’s desk ring side! Sienna knew that Serena was going to go for Trap Queen! This was the one move that won her the Specialists Championship at King of Elite! Sienna knows that she is going to need to be extra careful around Serena! That move has won her a championship in the past! However, Serena is going to need to be careful for the RDG — the bridging fisherman’s suplex, which won Sienna the Women’s World Championship at King of Elite as well! She’s also won matches with the Raw Sienna as well! Marti Solo is bend over to check on Sienna Jade ring side! WHILE SHE IS DOING THAT, SERENA BENNETT LOOKS AT THE ROPES BEHIND HER, REBOUNDS FROM THEM BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A TOPÈ CON HILO OVER THE OFFICIAL ON SIENNA TO THE OUTSIDE! I DON’T LIKE SERENA AT ALL, BUT THAT WAS A STELLAR MOVE…FOR A TRAITOR! THE OFFICIAL DID NOT SEE SERENA PULLING OFF THAT MOVE EITHER, BUT THE CROWD IS ON THEIR FEET FROM THAT MOVE! IT SEEMS LIKE THE OFFICIAL IS GOING TO BE MORE FLEXIBLE WHEN IT COMES TO THINGS THAT HAPPEN OUTSIDE OF THE RING! THIS MATCH IS NO DISQUALIFICATION AND NO COUNT OUTS! SHE WILL INTERJECT HERSELF WHERE SHE SEES THAT SHE NEEDS TOO! BOTH OF THESE WOMEN ARE DOWN! NONE OF THEM ARE MOVING FOR THE TIME BEING!

(For about a minute, Sienna Jade or Serena Bennett are not moving. However, it does not stay like that for too long as Serena begins to rise back to her feet. Serena gets a good hold on Sienna…)

CJ Hana: SIENNA JADE WITH A HEADBUTT TO SERENA BENNETT! SERENA WITH A PUNCH TO SIENNA! SIENNA WITH A HEADBUTT TO SERENA! SERENA WITH A PUNCH TO SIENNA! THESE TWO WOMEN ARE TRADING SHOTS WITH ONE ANOTHER! SIENNA CONNECTS WITH A KNEE TO THE STOMACH OF SERENA! SIENNA GETS SERENA BY HER ARM BEFORE WHIPPING HER AGAINST THE BARRICADE! The champion runs towards Serena with a dropkick! Serena falls to a seated position! Sienna gets Serena by her hair before throwing her across ring side! It seemed effortless from Serena to be thrown like that! Sienna runs towards Serena and connects with a meteora, which takes down Serena Bennett! SIENNA GETS BACK TO HER FEET AS SHE HAS HER ARMS WIDE OPEN IN CONFIDENCE! THE CROWD BOOS AT THE SIGHT OF THAT! BUT, I THINK SIENNA REALLY THRIVES OF PISSING OFF THIS CROWD! I THINK THEY’RE GOING TO BE PISSED IF SHE RETAINS TONIGHT! SIENNA GETS ON TOP OF OUR TABLE! IT SEEMS LIKE SHE IS WAITING FOR SERENA TO RISE BACK TO HER FEET ENOUGH! SIENNA IS ANTICIPATING HER NEXT MOVE! THIS IS MAKING ME NERVOUS, GAVIN! SERENA BENNETT SLOWLY RISES TO HER FEET…

Gavin Kirkland: RAW SIENNA FROM OUR TABLE TO SERENA BENNETT! SERENA STUMBLES FORWARD AS SHE CRASHES FRONT FIRST ON THE EDGE OF THE RAMP! SERENA IS HOLDING ONTO HER STOMACH IN PAIN! SHE COLLAPSES TO THE GROUND! CRY, SERENA! YOU CAN’T HANG WITH THE BIG KIDS! YOU GOT NO CHANCES OF WINNING! YOUR CRIES ARE NOTHING, BUT SWEET MUSIC TO MY EARS! SIENNA WALKS TOWARDS SERENA BEFORE GETTING HER IN POSITION FOR THAT GORY SPECIAL! SIENNA JADE CALLS THAT THE CLAPBACK! SIENNA HAS HER BACK TURNED — THE CLAPBACK! SERENA LANDS FACE FIRST AGAINST THE EDGE OF THE APRON! OUR WOMEN’S WORLD CHAMPION IS RUTHLESS AS SHE IS BLONDE! SERENA IS MOTIONLESS AT THIS POINT! I WOULD ADVISE FOR SIENNA TO ROLL SERENA BACK INTO THE RING AND CALL IT A NIGHT! SIENNA IS WALKING OVER TO THE TIMEKEEPER’S AREA!

(Sienna Jade grabs a steel chair before slamming it shut! Sienna has some malicious intentions about what she plans to do to Serena Bennett next! This is not going to be good, people. :lupe: )

CJ Hana: SIENNA JADE GETS SERENA BENNETT BY HER ARM! SIENNA HITS SERENA’S RIGHT ARM WITH THE STEEL CHAIR! INSTANTLY, SERENA FLINCHES IN RESPONSE! SIENNA GETS SERENA’S ARM IN POSITION AGAIN BEFORE GETTING THE EDGE OF THE STEEL CHAIR AND DRIVING IT AGAINST THE WRIST OF SERENA! THIS MUST NOT FEEL PLEASANT, GAVIN! BUT, SIENNA HAS SOMETHING TO PROVE IN THIS MATCH! SIENNA HAS TO PROVE THAT SHE IS THE CHAMPION! NOT ONLY ON THE EMPIRE BRAND, BUT IN EAW AS A WHOLE! SIENNA OPENS UP THE CHAIR UP BEFORE STICKING SIENNA’S HAND THROUGH THE HOLE OF THE CHAIR! I DON’T THINK I AM GOING TO LIKE WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN NEXT! THIS COULD SERIOUSLY INJURE SERENA’S ARM IF EXECUTED! SERENA NEEDS HER ARMS TO APPLY TRAP QUEEN OR SERENITY! IF SIENNA MANAGES TO TAKE AWAY THE USE OF SERENA’S ARMS, SHE HAS NO WAY TO END THIS MATCH! SIENNA HAS SERENA’S ARM THROUGH THE HOLE OF THE STEEL CHAIR! SHE GETS HER FOOT UP! SHE IS GOING TO STOMP AND HURT SERENA’S ARM —

Gavin Kirkland: SERENA BENNETT SLIDES HER RIGHT ARM OUT OF THE WAY! SHE SWIPES THE STEEL CHAIR UNDERNEATH SIENNA JADE’S FEET! IT SEEMS LIKE SERENA WAS PLAYING POSSUM! THE IDIOT MAY HAVE ALMOST INJURED HER ARM IN THE PROCESS, BUT SHE SPRINGS BACK TO LIFE WITH THE STEEL CHAIR! She rams the edge of the steel chair onto the ribs of Sienna! Sienna bends forward in response as Serena strikes the chair onto the spine of Sienna! Sienna falls to her knees in pain! Serena gets the edge of the steel chair and strikes it to the back of Sienna’s neck! Serena collapses front first! Serena gets Sienna up and rolls her back inside the ring! Serena slides underneath the bottom rope! She is waiting for Sienna to make it back to her feet! Serena is more than anxious to hit this next move! Sienna rises back to her feet as she turns around! Serena Bennett runs towards Sienna and connects with a somersault clothesline! This takes Sienna Jade down! Serena goes for the cover! This could end everything! Please kick out Sienna!

Marti Solo: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! … TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

CJ Hana: Sienna Jade kicks out! The Women’s World Champion is still in this match! Serena Bennett needs to stay focused at this point in the match! It would be so easy for someone to get frustrated, but she cannot let that frustration get the best of her! Serena gets Sienna back to her feet before whipping her to the corner! Sienna manages to stay at the corner! Serena goes after the champion with some double knees! BUT, SIENNA PUSHES SERENA BEFORE SHE COULD CONNECT WITH THOSE DOUBLE KNEES! SERENA GOES FOR WITH THE SHITS — THE TWO SHOOT KICKS AND SHE FOLLOWS THAT UP WITH A JUMPING BACK KICK! SIENNA STUMBLES FORWARD AS SERENA GETS ON THE TOP TURNBUCKLE! SHE IS YELLING FOR SIENNA TO TURN HERSELF AROUND BEFORE JUMPING OFF THE TOP TURNBUCKLE — METEORA ON SIENNA JADE! THE METEORA CATCHES THE CHAMPION! SERENA BENNETT GETS SIENNA FOR THE COVER IN THE PROCESS! THIS HAS TO BE OVER, GAVIN!

Marti Solo: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!!…TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!! TH—

Gavin Kirkland: The Face of FOX kicks out just barely! Serena Bennett smacks her hands against the canvas! Get frustrated, Serena! Sienna Jade is impossible to put down! Serena is managing to ignore the pain she is in at the moment, she wants to win this match more than anything in the world! But, Sienna is going to do everything in her power to make sure that Serena doesn’t get that! We can’t have another travesty happen this weekend! Serena gets Sienna Jade in the Trap Queen! The Trap Queen is locked in! But, Sienna manages to get her foot on the bottom rope! Serena releases the hold right away! For Serena, she is going to need to figure out how to get Sienna away from the ropes and lock in her submission hold! Sienna knows that if Serena manages to apply that move, it could smell trouble for the Women’s World Champion! SERENA GETS TO A VERTICAL BASE AS SHE GETS SIENNA BACK TO HER FEET AS WELL! SERENA CLUTCHES SIENNA BY HER CHIN AND PROCEEDS TO TRASH TALK TO SIENNA!

Serena Bennett (off mic): You should know when to quit, Sienna! You can’t touch me in the ring! You ain’t on my level!

CJ Hana: Serena Bennett connects with an upper cut as that sends Sienna Jade back to the ropes! Serena gets Sienna by her arm before whipping her to the other set of ropes! Sienna rebounds off of them, but is met with a kitchen sink! Sienna flips around as she lands to a seated position before falling onto her back! Serena gets on the top turnbuckle! IT SEEMS LIKE WE’RE GOING TO SEE SERENA WITH A HIGH RISK OF HER OWN! SIENNA JADE IS IN PERFECT POSITION! SIENNA IS NOT MOVING WHATSOEVER AS SERENA LOOKS AT THE SOLD OUT CROWD AT THE MERCEDES-BENZ STADIUM! BEFORE JUMPING OFF THE TOP ROPE!

Gavin Kirkland: FROG SPLASH ON SIENNA JADE!

CJ Hana: Nobody is home for that move! Sienna Jade managed to roll herself to her side and avoid contact with that frog splash! Serena Bennett crashes and burns! The challenger is clutching onto her stomach! That landing must have been painful! Sienna is on her knees as that evil smirk on her face is creeping up! I think that the champion must have found her opening in this match! Sienna gets Serena in position for the RDG! But, it seems like Serena still has some fight in her left! Serena is trying to punch herself out of the move! Serena manages to push herself away from Sienna, but Serena falls to one knee! SIENNA GOES TOWARDS SERENA AND CONNECTS WITH A SPINNING BACK KICK ON THE COMPTON NATIVE! SERENA FALLS BACK AS SIENNA GETS SIENNA BEFORE GETTING HER IN POSITION FOR THE RDG! THIS CAN BE THE MOVE THAT GETS SIENNA THAT UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPIONSHIP! THE MOVE CONNECTS AS SIENNA SCRAMBLES FOR THE COVER!

Marti Solo: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!

Gavin Kirkland: HOW DID SERENA BENNETT KICK OUT OF THAT?????? Sienna Jade looks in disbelief of what happened? Sienna is looking back at the official! Sienna insists that it was a three count. Do you know what, CJ? I agree with Sienna! That was a three count! Sienna should be the winner! Yet, why is no “Ding! Ding! Ding!” happening? It seems like Sienna is chuckling hysterically — this is where the “Unfuckwithable” is at her most dangerous! :lupe: But, I don’t seem to mind it in this match! I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR THE DEATH OF SERENA BENNETT FOR THE PAST SIX MONTHS! I AM GOING TO GET IT! SIENNA JADE GETS UP TO HER FEET AS SHE GETS SERENA UP TO HER FEET BY HER CHIN! SIENNA IS TRASH TALKING TO THE CHALLENGER!

Sienna Jade: Give it, Serena!

(Sienna Jade’s grasp on Serena Bennett’s chin gets more tighter.)

Sienna Jade (off mic): I AM …

INEVITABLE!

(Serena Bennett looks like a broken mess at the moment, but she has a cocky grin on her face before looking at Sienna Jade.)

Serena Bennett (off mic): AND I’M SERENA FUCKIN’ BENNETT!

CJ Hana: SERENA BENNETT WITH A HEADBUTT TO SIENNA JADE! SIENNA RELEASES WHATEVER HOLD THAT SHE HAD LEFT OF SERENA AS SHE FALLS BACK IN RESPONSE TO THE HEADBUTT! SERENA FOLLOWS UP THAT HEADBUTT BY CONNECTING WITH THE DROPKICK THAT SENDS SIENNA BACK TO THE ROPES! SERENA CONNECTS WITH A GIANT SIDE HAND CHOP TO SIENNA’S CHEST! The Women’s World Champion is holding her chest in pain as Serena gets Sienna by her arm and whips her to the corner! Sienna lands harshly at the corner, but Serena goes after the champion by connecting with double knees to Sienna’s chest before connecting With The Shits! The jumping back kick portion of the move sends Sienna seated at the bottom of the corner! Serena Bennett takes a few steps back before connecting with a running corner crossbody on Sienna! Sienna is almost flattened like a pancake! Serena gets off of Sienna before pulling her by the leg! Serena pulls Sienna to the middle of the ring before going for the cover!

Marti Solo: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!! THR—

Gavin Kirkland: NO! SIENNA JADE MANAGES TO GET OUT OF THE PIN FALL ATTEMPT! SHE SHIFTS HER BODY AS SHE GETS SERENA BENNETT IN THE TEMPTRESS — THE DOUBLE UNDERHOOK CROSSFACE IS APPLIED TO SERENA BENNETT! IT’S NOT JUST SERENA, WHO CAN BRING OUT THESE SUBMISSION MOVES INTO THE MATCH! SIENNA HAS A SUBMISSION MOVE OF HER OWN! SERENA IS STUCK IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING! TAP OUT, SERENA! TAP OUT! SIENNA JADE MAY BE THE FIRST PERSON IN THIS COMPANY TO MAKE SERENA BENNETT TAP OUT! THIS WOULD BE MONUMENTAL FOR SIENNA! TAP OUT, SERENA! TAP OUT! YOU’RE DONE FOR! SERENA BENNETT IS IN TROUBLE! SHE IS STUCK IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING! TAP! TAP! TAP! TAP!

CJ Hana: The Women’s Grand Rampage winner is in trouble! I think the best thing for her to do is to submit! Look at this, Gavin! SERENA BENNETT IS SHIFTING HER BODY AROUND! SHE’S TURNING HERSELF AROUND AS SHE GETS SIENNA IN POSITION FOR THE TRAP QUEEN! SHE’S GETTING HER HANDS AROUND SIENNA JADE’S NECK! SIENNA’S ARMS ARE TRAPPED! THE WOMEN’S WORLD CHAMPION IS STUCK IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING! THERE’S NO PLACE FOR SIENNA TO SCRAMBLE! THE ROPES ARE SO FAR AWAY FROM HERE!

Gavin Kirkland: DO NOT TAP, SIENNA! YOU’RE SMART! LOOK FOR A WAY TO COUNTER THIS MOVE! COME ON, SIENNA! DO NOT LOSE TO THAT TRAITOR!

CJ Hana: SIENNA JADE IS SCREAMING IN PAIN! SHE KNOWS THE TROUBLE THAT SHE IS IN AT THE MOMENT! SERENA BENNETT HAS THAT TRAP QUEEN LOCKED IN! THERE’S NO WAY FOR SIENNA TO GET TO THE ROPES! SHE IS STUCK IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING! :lupe:

SHE TAPS OUT!! SIENNA JADE TAPS OUT!! SERENA BENNETT WINS!!

(Ding! Ding! Ding)

(“Surfin’” hits the speakers once again as the crowd EXPLODES in the Mercedes-Benz Stadium! Serena Bennett releases the Trap Queen on Sienna Jade as a wave of emotion hits the young woman’s face. The woman put her body on the line. This feeling was bigger than winning the Women’s Grand Rampage Match. This feeling was nothing that she had ever felt before. Serena Bennett is covering her face in shock as the crowd is applauding her.)

Maria Del Rey: THE WINNER AND THE FIRST EVER ELITE ANSWERS WRESTLING UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPION … SEEEEEERRRRRRRREEEEEEEEENNNNNNNNNNNNAAAAAAAAA BEEEEENNNNNNNNEEEEEEETTTTTTTTTTTT!!

CJ Hana: SHE DID IT, GAVIN! SERENA BENNETT DID IT! She tapped out Sienna Jade in the middle of the ring to win the Universal Women’s Championship! Serena Bennett’s name goes down in the EAW History books as this championship’s first champion!

Gavin Kirkland: No, Sienna! I hate life. :mjcry:

(Sabina enters the ring with the Universal Women’s Championship. She extends the championship forward as Serena Bennett looks at the title with amazement! Serena gets a grasp of the championship before raising the title proudly in the air! The crowd roars in approval because of that. Sienna Jade is ringside, sat down with her back pressed against the barricade with a heartbroken look on her face.)

Gavin Kirkland: WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT? SERENA BENNETT WAS BLIND SIDED FROM BEHIND!

CJ Hana: THAT’S KASSIDY HEART, GAVIN! KASSIDY HEART HAS THE ICONIC CUP IN HER HAND! SERENA BENNETT IS DOWN! SERENA BENNETT IS DOWN!

Gavin Kirkland: THIS IS BEAUTIFUL, CJ! KASSIDY IS GOING TO THE REFEREE AS SHE HANDS HER THE ICONIC CUP! KASSIDY IS CASHING IN RIGHT NOW!

Maria Del Rey: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… KASSIDY HEART IS CASHING IN THE ICONIC CUP!

CJ Hana: NOT LIKE THIS!

Gavin Kirkland: YES! YES! YES!

(Serena Bennett is slowly rising back to her feet, almost like she’s gesturing for Kassidy Heart to come at her. There is some fight in the newly crowned Universal Women’s Champion! Kassidy is gesturing for the official to ring the bell!)

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

CJ Hana: Kassidy Heart goes right after Serena Bennett with a giant knee into the champion’s stomach! Serena collapses to the ground! That knee must have took most of the air out of the woman! Kassidy runs towards Serena — PAINFULLY EVER AFTER — THE CURB STOMP ON SERENA BENNETT! HER HEAD GOES CRASHING ONTO THE CANVAS! KASSIDY GOES FOR THE COVER!

Marti Solo: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

(“Put Em’ Up” by Lupe Fiasco plays through the speakers as the crowd EXPLODES for Kassidy Heart. The blonde is on her knees as she is covering her mouth, full of emotion is written on her face. She is trying to process this moment. She has to be dreaming, but nope. This is actually happening. Kassidy Heart is the Universal Women’s Champion!)

Maria Del Rey: THE WINNER AND THE NEW UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPION…. KAAAAAAASSSSSIIIIIIIIDDDYYYYYYYYYYY HEEEEAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRRTTTTTTTT!!

Gavin Kirkland: ALL IS RIGHT IN THE WORLD! A BLONDE IS A CHAMPION! I NEVER THOUGHT THAT SERENA’S REIGN OF TERROR WOULD NEVER END! :blessed: :blessed: :blessed:

CJ Hana: In a span of two minutes, we went from Serena Bennett as Universal Women’s Champion to Kassidy Heart! I was not expecting this at all, but congratulations to Kassidy Heart! You may like her. You may hate her, but you cannot deny her talents in the ring! I’m not sure this was the right way to cash in!

Gavin Kirkland: THAT’S THE BEAUTY OF THE ICONIC CUP, CJ! THE CASH IN CAN HAPPEN AT ANYTIME!

(Serena Bennett is laying on her back out cold as Sienna Jade enters the ring and hands Kassidy Heart the Universal Women’s Championship. The two women of Jaded Hearts embrace each other as both cannot contain their emotions. Both of these women want success for each other. Both of these women do their parts to lift each other up when things are not going their way. The official roles Serena out of the ring, giving the two best friends a moment in the ring. Sienna gets a microphone.)

Sienna Jade: This week, I have had the opportunity to look back in my career. I looked back on the good and bad. I looked back at all the obstacles that I have faced to reach this point of my career. There were times where I wanted to throw in the towel. I wanted to just give up. I had no idea what was in me that wanted me to keep going, but I’m glad I did. Winning the Women’s World Championship at King of Elite was the moment I had been waiting for. It was a moment that I should have had at Pain for Pride last year. The idea that I was tossed to the side after Pain for Pride last year, discouraged me. In the process, I felt like I lost myself. I lost whatever made Sienna Jade “Unfuckwithable”. But, I found her again. What you see is what you get. I’ve never been the woman to put on a facade. What you got every single time you said me was my authentic self. It was me being Sienna Jade. I have a big ol’ mouth. I have tenacious personality. I’m pretty fucking proud to say that. I’ve never changed myself to appease others. I’ve never filtered myself to make sure that other people didn’t get offended.

(Crowd applauds Sienna for a moment.)

Sienna Jade: To me, I never gave a fuck what anyone thought of me. You could cheer or boo me, but I lived off your energy. It made me know that I was doing a pretty good fucking job at getting underneath your guys’ skin. I was playing my role to perfection. It was one of the things that made me excited to come out each week and compete. I wanted to see how I could get a reaction out of all you. I wanted you all to see what I did next. Nothing made me happier than being the talk of the town. Nothing made me happier than going out there and putting on a show to remember. Tonight was no different. My match with Serena should be the talk of the town. It should be the one thing that people are constantly talking about for a while. This season for me has been an emotional rollercoaster. A majority of the time, I had no idea where things were going to be headed, but I’m glad I stuck around to see where it headed. I am pretty proud of the results. I’m proud that I am the last Women’s World Champion just like I’m the last Freeweight Champion! Sorry, Cloud. You’re not taking that away from me.

(Crowd applauds Sienna Jade as she holds onto Kassidy Heart’s hand.)

Sienna Jade: Just like I’m not going to take this moment for you, Kassidy. Kassipoo, there is no one on this roster that deserves this championship more than you. You have been someone who has been able to lift me up in my darkest day. When everyone was telling you to turn on me, you remained loyal to me. You remained by my side, when I probably wouldn’t have. I always appreciate the times, where you knocked some sense into me when I was being dumb. You do not understand how much respect I have for you. I’ve had very little friends in this business, but I’m glad to say that you’re my best friend. I never thought that I would meet someone so caring and genuine like you. I never thought I would meet someone, who put people others before herself. Kassidy, I love you, but it’s time to think about yourself. It’s time to think about your own happiness. I’m sad that I couldn’t win the championship tonight. But, I’m happy that you were. If I couldn’t win, it should be you. You’re the reason I’m here, Kassipoo. Thank you for being you and never change that.

(The crowd applauds the kind words from Sienna Jade. Kassidy Heart has tears coming out from her eyes. Sienna looks like she is going to cry as well before looking at the crowd.)

Sienna Jade: This has been an emotional rollercoaster and this is one of the first times in a while where I get to sit down and reflect on everything. When I get to the back, that’s exactly what I’m planning to do. I am going to sit down, reflect and wonder where I am going to take my career next. This is going to take me sometime. Which means, I’ll be gone for a while. When will I be back? Will I be back? These are the questions that people want to know, but you’ll figure that soon enough. Why would I tell you that now? I like an element of surprise. But for right now, I’m not going to take anymore of your time. I got some thinking to do. I’m going to leave you with this queen over here. Congratulations, Kassidy! I love you!

(Sienna Jade drops her microphone as “Unfuckwithable” plays through the speakers again. Sienna and Kassidy embrace once again. Words are being said that the audio cannot pick up. Sienna raises Kassidy’s hand high in the air. Kassidy raising the title with her other hand. The crowd is applauding Sienna Jade and her effort tonight as she exits the ring. She walks backwards up the ramp as she looks back at her friend celebrating in the ring. “Put Em’ Up” plays through the speakers again as Kassidy Heart raises the Universal Women’s Championship high in the air. Sienna looks back at her best friend with a huge smile and tears in her eyes.)

Gavin Kirkland: Sienna Jade taking a break? We’re down another blonde. Take Serena Bennett instead. :mjcry: She’s already dead.

CJ Hana: This was an unexpected turn of events. We knew that there was going to be a day where Kassidy Heart cashes in the Iconic Cup, but I was not expecting it for it to be tonight… or against Serena Bennett!

Gavin Kirkland: I’m glad it happened. But when Serena wins wake, she’s not going to be happy about what transpired. I was sad about what occurred with Cleopatra last night. But, I’m very happy tonight. I’m kinda crying right now, so it’s gonna make touching myself real awkward.

CJ Hana: Um, I didn’t need to know that at all. But, let’s ignore that! What a wonderful Day 2 it’s been! It’s mind-blowing that we have one more night to go!

Gavin Kirkland: One more day until we’re out of the job. :mjcry: But, join us here for Day 3! Signing in behalf of Stew-O, Flannery McCoy, James Peters, Rich Russillo, Deadprez, Eve and CJ Hana, I am Gavin Kirkland! See you tomorrow!

(The last shot is of Kassidy Heart raising the Universal Women’s Championship high in the air. The pyros going off in the nighttime sky. The confetti dropping as it fades to black.)

(EAW Logo Buzzes)

DAY THREE

(EAW intro plays.)

(Our footage begins with a dark black screen that slowly fades away so that we see the inside of the EAW version of the Louvre where carved statues, sculptures, paintings and various other works of art line the dimly lit hallways running as far as the eye can see. Many visitors and patrons are seen strolling through the area, admiring the works of art, similarly as they did last night.)

Narrator: The entire secret in winning a war lies in confusing the enemy, so that he cannot fathom our real intent…

(The camera captures a close look from various angles of a sculpture depicting Felix Hartley as Venus of Arles, raising one hand in the air as she looks down at the New Breed Championship that now dangles from her other hand.)

Narrator: …being mindful of appearing weak when you are strong…and strong when you are weak…

(A marble sculpture nearby captures the very moment when Impact’s #9Reignz began, Rex McAllister trying to rip Impact free as Noah Reigner succumbs to the bow and arrow choke.)

Narrator: …victorious warriors win first and then go to war, while defeated warriors go to war first and then seek to win…

(An oil painting inspired by St. Michael Vanquishing Satan by the painter Raphael is seen, Lethal Consequences taking shape of the angel St. Michael, and Scott Diamond laying on his back, under LC’s foot, and LC raising a spear in the air with the intent to “vanquish” Scott Diamond for good.)

Narrator: The art of war consists of many uncertainties…and guessing of what may be on the other side…

(An oil painting similar to the Portrait of Louis XIV is shown with Mark Michaels standing tall, shrouded in extravagant coronation robes as he holds the PURE Championship high in the air.)

Narrator: Ultimate excellence lies not in winning every battle, but in defeating the enemy without ever fighting…

(We see a rendition of Psyche Revived by Cupid’s Kiss, a sculpture where Kassidy Heart wearing a set of wings embraces Sienna Jade, holding her up by her shoulders, showing the Universal Women’s Championship to the fallen former champion.)

Narrator: …and in the midst of the chaos of war, there is also opportunity…opportunities which multiply as they are seized…

(From multiple angles, we see a large oil painting, fashioned after The Massacre at Chios, each of the eight Cash in the Vault competitors positioned along the beach, awaiting the destruction of their ladder match.)

Narrator: …but be wary of blind bravery, which causes one to fight blindly and desperately like a mad bull. Such an opponent, must not be encountered with brute force, but may be lured into an ambush and slain…

(An oil painting inspired by “Women with a Mirror” shows Kendra Shamez avoiding looking into a mirror that is held up in front of her by Tyler Wolfe.)

Narrator: …and the general who advances without coveting fame and retreats without fearing disgrace, whose only thought is to protect what he holds dear and do good service for his sovereign, is the jewel of the kingdom…

(Four granite statues are positioned around a pillar–Darkane, Mr. DEDEDE, Jamie O’Hara, Theron Nikolas standing, each looking in different directions as they keep the Answers World Championship in mind.)

Narrator: Such is the art of war. And even should you one day master the art…

(Fade to black.)

Narrator: …know that war is never over.

(The intro to “Apeshit” begins to play.)

Narrator: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, EAW PROUDLY PRESENTS THE FINAL EVENING OF THE MOST PRESTIGIOUS EVENT IN ALL OF WRESTLING! PAIN FOR PRIDE XII, DAY THREE OF THE MECCA OF THE CULTURE COMING TO YOU LIVE!

(The camera feed transitions, allowing the viewers a close look of the inside of the Mercedes Benz Stadium, where the camera now pans over the record breaking crowd who are unable to contain their thunderous excitement for the last day of Pain for Pride weekend. The eruption of pyro begins around the stage and the outside of the arena, fireworks popping off above the stadium as the crowd continues to cheer.)

(“Apeshit” by The Carters continues to play as the camera pans again over the faces of the tireless fans who stand against the barricade, who have seemingly endless amounts of energy as they shake and scream with excitement, the mania of the live crowd felt through the camera feed.)

Deadprez: Ladies and gentlemen…WELCOME TO DAY 3! PAIN FOR PRIDE TWELVE CONTINUES RIGHT HERE RIGHT NOW AND I CAN BARELY HEAR MYSELF OVER THIS MAXIMUM CAPACITY CROWD HERE IN THE MERCEDES-BENZ STADIUM!

Eve: Welcome everybody! I’m Eve, here with my Showdown partner Deadprez—man, what a weekend, huh? You can smell the energy in the air, feel it with every last bone and muscle in your body, pulsating right through you as we are still trying to come down from last night’s Pain for Pride high!

Deadprez: :dame: Tell me about it. What a main event, amiright? To see Kassidy Heart finally get her career defining moment on a stage like this?! Chills just thinking about it all over again.

Eve: Ahhh, and we also got to witness the beginning of Impact’s NINTH title reign—a moment that I know shocked the thousands here in attendance and the millions watching at home! Goosebumps, Prez, I got goosebumps!

Deadprez: Certainly wish we had time to recap everything, Eve, or even introduce our fellow commentary teams standing by with us here tonight—but it’s Pain for fucing Pride, dammit, and we want to see some action—RIGHT NOW!

(Highlights of the Cage Vs. TLA Feud are shown, showcasing Cage’s warpath and tormenting and battering Hurricane Hawk, leading to TLA getting Involved and Cage beating TLA with the crowbar as well, before cutting to TLA making the challenge and attacking and busting Cage open on the stage to the last weeks Showdown where Cage planted TLA after his match and mouthed the words: “I’M GOING TO END YOU”)

(Camera cuts back to the Mercedes Benz Stadium as the crowd is standing on their feet as the camera pans up to the stage)

(As the lights are completely shut off, we hear an opening guitar rift as the band Metallica is shown on the side of the stage and as the music kicks in pyrotechnics explode through the stage as an army of men wearing skull mask carrying barbwire baseball bats are shown marching out to the stage as Metallica head man James Hetfield begins to sing on)

James Hetfield: HEY!!!

I’m your life

I’m the one who takes you there…..

HEY!!!

I’m your life

I’m the one who cares

THEY!!!

They betray

I’m your only true friend now

THEY!!!!!

They’ll betray

I’m forever there

I’m your dream, make you real

I’m your eyes when you must steal

I’m your pain when you can’t feel

Crowd: SAD BUT TRUE!!

James Hetfield: I’m your dream, mind astray

I’m your eyes while you’re away

I’m your pain while you repay

YOU KNOW IT’S SAD BUT TRUEEEE!!!!!!

(As Metallica continues to play on the army stands side by side before parting the long entrance ramp as Cage is shown with a deranged look in his eyes with a custom dark leather spiked jacket as he makes his entrance to a LOUD OVATION FROM THE CROWD, The army walking alongside Cage as Cage begins making his strut to the ring)

Gina Romano: The following contest is set for one fall!!! INTRODUCING FIRST!!!!! From Edmonton, Alberta Canada! Weighting in at 227 Pounds!!! “EXPLICIT CONTENT” THISSSS ISS… CAAAAAAGGEEEEEEEEEEEE….!!!

Eve: A year ago, the story was can Cage win the EAW Championship? And he did it, he was the main event, and he couldn’t find himself there again this year but this is a clash of epic proportions! Two of the best Showdown has to offer about to throw down on the biggest stage where the entire world is watching!

Deadprez: We both know, Cage is a bonafide mental patient and should not be in a wrestling ring. Which is why most of his matches are him bleeding all over the place but he is going to have to actually wrestle this match to win it!

Eve: What a statement with this entrance too! Entering the battlefield once again about to leave it all in the ring tonight!

James Hetfield:

I’m your pain when you can’t feel

Sad but true

I’m your truth, telling lies

I’m your reasoned alibis

I’m inside open your eyes

I’m YOU

Crowd: SAD BUT TRUE!!!!

(Cage enters the ring as the army surrounds the ring as he has his hands open wide in the air as pyrotechnics shoot from around the stadium as we have a pan shot around the stadium as Metallica finishes up and Cage still with that deranged look on his face makes his way to the turnbuckle and rest his head on the turnbuckle talking to himself as the army makes their way through the crowd as Cage continues talking to himself)

(The lights in the arena go black as the crowd cheers loudly before eventually quieting down. The camera pans across the arena showing the thousands of lights from the fans’ phones. Suddenly a loud panting noise is heard across the audio system.)

Eve: Calm down Dead. I know you are excited but this is too much…

Deadprez: It ain’t me ho!

Eve: You thirsty af. :lyin:

(The panting noise continues for several minutes before a bright spotlight shines down on the stage. The spotlight reveals Steroid Dawg sitting in the middle of the stage smiling with her tongue out as the crowd gives a standing ovation.)

Crowd: WE AREN’T WORTHY! WE AREN’T WORTHY!

(The crowd is shown bowing in a mass show of respect. Suddenly “The Circle of Life” from the Lion King hits as a sun is shown rising on the titantron. Scantily clad women dressed like lions are shown sliding down hundred foot long poles into the arena from the rafters.)

Deadprez: :damn: Here comes the bitches!

Eve: I’m confused. First the dog now the lions this seems random as hell.

Deadprez: Shhh Eve just enjoy the majestic artistry.

(Deadprez is shown taking close up pictures of the women with his phone as he shows them to Eve who looks completely disinterested.)

Eve: Deadprez is a furry confirmed.

(As the song reaches the refrain one of the Male Poons emerges looking jacked like he ate every steroid in Atlanta. He grabs Steroid Dawg and lifts her up symbolically over the edge of the stage.)

Deadprez: I’m literally crying Eve! It’s so beautiful!

Eve: Shit he’s gonna drop the dawg!

(Suddenly Steroid Dawg starts to bare her fangs before whipping around and tearing into the Male Poon who screams in a more high pitched way than any of the Female Poons. The feed for Pain for Pride XII then fades into a “Technical Difficulties” screen for several minutes before returning to the stage.)

Deadprez: Where am I? Am I in heaven?

Eve: Well I think we are back… after whatever that was…

(A crew member is shown mopping up blood on stage before the camera pans to Gina Romano standing impatiently in the ring.)

Deadprez: PETA is going to sue us again.

(“Ambitionz az a Ridah” hits as the crowd goes nuclear. TLA emerges out on stage as he signals to the crowd to look under their chairs.)

Gina Romano: Introducing from Tlaxcala, Mexico weighing in at 210 pounds… he is LA PANTERA SEXUAL… T!!!!!! L!!!!!! A!!!!!!

(TLA makes his way down to the ring as the fans are shown checking under their chairs. Underneath their chairs each fan finds a Poon gift wrapped and waiting for them as a present.)

Deadprez: Oh shit! Are you deadass????

(The camera cuts to Deadprez frantically flipping chairs at ringside and searching under the commentary table.)

Eve: Damn I think he forgot you.

Deadprez: :noah:

(TLA launches off a trampoline flipping into the ring like all true luchadors do. TLA throws his “Poon for Pride” t-shirt into the audience causing a dangerous situation and multiple injuries.)

Eve: TLA is here making his fifth consecutive appearance at Pain for Pride. He won championships two years in a row at Pain for Pride 8 and 9. He has slowed down a bit the last couple years but you can’t claim he has slowed down in terms of competition. Tonight however he has the highest level of competition he has faced to date as he takes on the EAW Hall of Famer and the man who dominated Showdown for most of the past year as EAW Champion in Diamond Cage.

Deadprez: In spite of several setbacks and some recent erratic behavior TLA has refused to relinquish his Pain for Pride moment. The absolute audacity he has shown confronting Showdown General Manager Hurricane Hawk and his assault and attempted humiliation of Diamond Cage has led up to this match and made things personal. Yet when it comes to erratic behavior the first man in EAW I think of is his opponent tonight. Let’s face it. These two are going to beat the shit out of each other and I’m going to love every minute of it. Just ring the fucking bell.

(DING! DING! DING!)

Eve: How are we going to start this match here tonight? AN ALL OUT FIGHT AS THE TLA AND CAGE COLLIDE FOR A MASSIVE BRAWL!! BOTH MEN TRADING IN A HOCKEY FIGHTS!! THIS MATCH STARTING IN ALL OUT CHAOS! And Cage stopping the brawl as he delivers a big knee to the mid-section of TLA! TLA hunched over as Cage follows that up with a CLUBBING blow on his back! Cage grabbing TLA up aggressively and sends a big european uppercut jacking the jaw of TLA! BUT TLA COMES FORWARD AND DELIVERS A BIG FOREARM SMASH ROCKING CAGE! Cage backing up as TLA begins delivering another big forearm smash to the face of Cage! But Cage comes forward with a KNIFE EDGE CHOP TO THE CHEST! TLA backing up but swings! AND CAGE GOES FOR A WAIST LOCK BEHIND TLA AND TRIES TO LIFT HIM FOR THE GERMAN SUPLEX! TLA backs his elbow into the face of Cage stopping that attack, Cage backing up as TLA runs off the ropes and comes forward with a DROPKICK STRAIGHT TO THE FACE OF DIAMOND CAGE! Cage pops right back up to his feet as TLA immediately meets him AND HE CLOTHESLINES CAGE OVER THE TOP ROPE AND DOWN TO THE FLOOR!

Deadprez: Cage landing on his feet and trying to shake the cobwebs from his head and gather himself but, TLA runs! AND LOOKS TO DIVE THROUGH THE ROPES FOR A SUICIDE DIVE!! BUT CAGE CATCHES HIM WITH A EUROPEAN UPPERCUT IN MID AIR! Cage grabbing TLA up to his feet, AND HE THROWS HIM INTO THE STEEL STEPS HEAD AND NECK FIRST! Cage grabbing TLA by his hair, AND HE SLAMS HIS FACE INTO THE STEEL STEPS! Cage is very comfortable here on the outside as the referee is encouraging them to get in the ring but Cage is ignoring the referee. Cage grabs TLA, AND HE BEGINS BITING AT HIS FINGERS!! CAGE IS BITING AT THE FINGERS OF TLA AND TLA IS SCREAMING!! Cage stops this as TLA begins holding his fingers! And Cage grabs TLA AND DELIVERS A BIONIC ELBOW! Driving the point of his elbow to the head of TLA like a railroad spike! Cage throws TLA back inside of the ring, and he follows. TLA on all floors trying to get to his feet as Cage, Cage grabs TLA and drives his knee right into the face as he connects with his nose! TLA shaken up as Cage is turning this into a barbaric fight! Cage mounting TLA on the canvas, AND CAGE!! HE IS SLAPPING TLA ACROSS THE FACE, CAGE REPEATEDLY SLAPPING TLA!!! AND THE REFEREE GRABS THE HAND OF CAGE BEFORE HE CAN DELIVER ANOTHER ONE!

Eve: Cage rising to his feet as he gets nose to nose with the referee, Cage arguing with the referee, as TLA is trying to recover as he rises to his knees, Cage turning his focus back to TLA! And before he can do further damage to TLA! TLA WITH A BODY SHOT! AND HE DELIVERS ANOTHER BIG BODY SHOT! AND HE GETS TO HIS FEET AND SENDS A BIG RIGHT HAND TO THE FACE OF CAGE! AND HE SENDS A BOOT RIGHT TO THE FACE OF CAGE! He knocks Cage into the ropes, BUT CAGE HANGS HIMSELF IN THE ROPES AND POPS UP!! FOR A LARIAT! TLA ducks the lariat! Cage turns and TLA JUMPS AND PLANTS CAGE WITH A HURRICANRANA! Cage rising slowly this time as TLA waits, AND HE SENDS AN OPEN HANDED PALM SLAP TO THE CHEST OF CAGE! TLA grabbing Cage and whips him into the corner hard! TLA runs at Cage! RUNNING DROPKICK IN THE CORNER TO THE FACE OF CAGE! TLA pulls Cage out of the corner and applies a front facelock! HE’S LOOKING FOR A BRAINBUSTER! But Cage with a punch to the throat as he was being risen! TLA coughing loudly! Cage getting himself together before going at TLA WHO QUICKLY GRABS CAGE AND SENDS HIM SHOULDER FIRST INTO THE RING POST!! TLA GRABBING CAGE BEFORE HE CAN PERFORM ANY FURTHER DAMAGE!! CAGE FALLS TO THE OUTSIDE FLOOR FROM THAT IMPACT! Cage rising up holding his shoulder as the referee makes his way outside trying to tend to Cage, and Cage immediately pushing the referee away!

Deadprez: TLA grabbing that arm of Cage and pulls him to the ring post! AND TLA SWINGS CAGE’S ARM INTO THE RING POST! Cage shouting out in pain, TLA seems to be enjoying this! TLA once again grabbing the arm of Cage and HE SWINGS IT INTO THE RINGPOST ONCE AGAIN! Cage holding his army as he drops as TLA is dominating right now, Cage is obviously wounded! TLA grabbing Cage up! BUT CAGE USING HIS GOOD ARM PUSHES TLA AS TLA’S HEAD AND NECK HIT THE RING POST! The referee is on the outside as he doesn’t want to end this match via countout, this is Pain for Pride and we want a definitive winner! TLA drops to a knee, Cage! Going to the opposite side away from TLA as he looks at that ring post! AND CAGE! CAGE RUNS HIS OWN SHOULDER INTO THE RING POST! CAGE IS TRYING TO KNOCK THE FEELING BACK INTO HIS OWN ARM AS HE BACKS UP ONCE AGAIN! AND HE RUNS HIMSELF INTO THE POST AGAIN! CAGE HE CAN’T BE SERIOUS! Cage grimacing in pain! And he walks over to TLA who is down here recovering! Cage grabbing TLA up to his feet and sends him inside of the ring before rolling himself back in! TLA rising up to his feet, AND HE SENDS A SHOOT KICK TO THAT SHOULDER OF CAGE! And Cage, oh my god, look at the look in Cage’s eyes. He just stares a hole into TLA and he’s encouraging TLA to kick him again, look!

Cage: C’MON, KICK ME AGAIN MOTHERF*CKER!

AND CAGE!! CAGE BEGINS BITING AT THE FOREHEAD! CAGE IS LITERALLY PULLING THE SKIN OF TLA’S FOREHEAD WITH HIS TEETH!! CAGE IS BARBARIC! HE’S NOT GOING TO STOP! CAGE FINALLY STOPS! Cage grabbing the arms of TLA! AND CAGE BEGINS STOMPING RUTHLESSLY!! MULTIPLE CURB STOMPS INTO THE FACE OF TLA! AND LISTEN TO WHAT HE’S SAYING!

Cage: YOU-STUPID-MOTHER-FUCKER!!

Deadprez: Cage finally stops that ruthless stomp compilation! Before sitting down next to TLA, this guy doesn’t know what the hell he is doing! Cage grabbing TLA by the head and almost cradle his head!

Cage: You’re doing good, you’re doing really good.

Deadprez: Yeah this guy is obviously not fit to be in a wrestling ring. Cage rises up and gets to his feet! And he pulls TLA up! And he grabs him from behind! WRIST-LOCK!! AND HE COMPLETES THE TRANSITION!! MURDER…. DEATHH!!! NO!! TLA WITH A BOOT TO THE SIDE OF THE HEAD OF CAGE BEFORE HE CAN DELIVER THAT FATAL LARIAT! TLA REPEATEDLY KICKING AWAY AT THE SKULL OF CAGE!! BUT CAGE RISES UP! AND HE PULLS TLA IN!!! AND CAGE JUST BACKHAND SLAPPED THE SHIT OUT OF TLA!!! TLA backing up! And Cage has a sick smile on his face and he’s telling him to come forward! TLA looking at Cage AND COMES FORWARD AND BACKHAND SLAPS THE SHIT OUT OF CAGE RIGHT BACK! Cage lowers his head, before he rises up! A SMILE STILL ON HIS FACE!! AND CAGE WITH A BACKHAND SLAP OF HIS OWN! AND TLA COMES BACK WITH A BACKHAND SLAP OF HIS OWN!! Cage is bleeding from his mouth! And TLA SLAPS THE SHIT OUT OF CAGE AGAIN!! Cage almost telling him to do it, AND TLA DOES IT ONCE AGAIN!! AND CAGE BEGINS UNLOADING, BACK HAND SLAP!

Cage signaling that this is it! Cage pulling TLA up to his feet, and he places him between his legs! And he lifts him! Gotch Style!!! CRADLE TO THE GRAVE!!! DIAMOND CAGE DELIVERS THAT GOTCH STYLE PILEDRIVER AS HE PLANTS TLA’S HEAD RIGHT INTO THE CANVAS!!!! AND CAGE HE HOOKS HIS LEG!!

Referee: ONNEEEEEEEEEEEEEE…TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO……….THRRRRRRR—KICKOUT!!!

Eve: TLA KICKS OUT!!! AND CAGE!!! CAGE LOOKS ON AT THE CROWD CHEERING FOR TLA AND HIM AND THEN HAS A SICK SMILE ON HIS FACE, ALMOST LIKE HE’S GLAD TLA KICKED OUT!! Cage pops up to his feet,

Cage is barely moving, blood pouring from the side of his head, turning his entire face into a crimson mask! Cage! Trying to pull himself up! TLA looking on as he rises as well. TLA pulling Cage up to his feet, AND HE PULLS HIM IN!! TLA IS GOING FOR ANOTHER MEXICAN DESTROYER!!! That front flip piledriver will surely be the end of this match up if TLA hits it once again!

(DING! DING! DING!)

(“Ambitionz Az A Ridah” blast throughout the stadium as TLA is downed on the canvas, but hes quickly helped up to his feet by the official as the audience applauds)

Gina: HEEEREEE IS YOURRRR WINNNNERRRR………. TT!!!!!!! LLLLL!!!!!!! AAAAA!!!!!!!

Eve: Oh My God! What the hell did we just experience!

Deadprez: A typical Diamond Cage match where he got to go ahead and bleed all over the damn furniture! WHAT A PERFORMANCE BY TLA!! THE MAN CAME AND DELIVERED!!

Eve: TLA proved something here tonight, this is the kind of match and victory that propels you to that level, to that world championship that TLA will certainly hold soon!

(TLA begins celebrating his victory, momentarily Cage rises up to his feet and spins TLA around)

Deadprez: NO!!!

(Cage and TLA staring at each other)

Eve: AND LOOK!! CAGE OFFERING HIS HAND TO TLA!!!!! AND TLA SHAKES HIS HAND!!! A RARE SHOW OF SPORTSMANSHIP FROM CAGE!!!

Cage: You did good..

(Cage, turns around and begins limping out of the ring refusing medical attention and leaping up the long ramp as TLA’s music picks back up and he begins celebrating as camera fades elsewhere)

(The camera transitions backstage and we find Kathy Kush standing by with a microphone in her perfectly manicured hands. She smiles an eager, bright smile into the camera as she stands against the Pain for Pride backdrop.)

Kathy Kush: Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome at this time…the NEWWW BREEEED CHAMPIONNN…FELIX HARTLEY!

(The crowd in the Mercedes-Benz arena erupted into a deafening mixed reaction as Felix Hartley joins Kathy, her beautiful New Breed Championship shining brightly against the dark backdrop. She wears her bright hair styled down against a form-fitting, asymmetric, gold metallic Gucci dress and matching gold stilettos. Unbothered as ever, Felix flips her hair and adjusts her championship over her shoulder as she gives Kathy a smirk, even reaching over to adjust Kathy’s hair for her.)

Kathy Kush: Erm, hi Felix. Congratulations on your victory last night against SOSA Henderson! What a match!

Felix Hartley: (She chuckles.) Yeah, okay thanks. I guess. Sounds fake to me, though. What, you thought I wasn’t gonna do exactly what I said I would? Like I haven’t been telling y’all since I got here exactly what it was. I showed that lazy motherfucker real quick what he gets for trying to fuck with me and trying to play me like I’m not one of the toughtest competitors in this company—despite my initial disdain for the industry. :mjgrin: But I’ve been here for months and yet people kept addressing me as a rookie, thinking I debuted fresh out of the fucking call-ups like some number one draft pick. Hell no. I’ve already been around, I’ve already done the world tour shit. I’ve been doing it. This shit isn’t new to me and that’s why you’re starting to hear my name a lot more and you’re gonna be seeing a lot more of me—and not just my unmentionables, either.

(She brushes off her new New Breed Championship.)

Felix Hartley: *Especially* now. The funny thing is that there are actually people here who believed SOSA had a chance at retaining that title—I’ve been reading articles, predictions, and sis, you have any idea how shocked I was to see that people still thought SOSA Henderson would stand a chance? :mjlol: Look at them now. Feeling stupid I bet. Now that all is said and done, all the non-believers and doubters and haters—SOSA Henderson especially—will have no choice *but* to respect me. Sure hope he and his bitch learned a good lesson yesterday. No good things come to people that speak badly about their New Breed Stallion, I hope the *entire* roster comes to understand that now, even as self-absorbed and bratty as some of these bitches can be.

Kathy Kush: I sure hope they will, Felix. And speaking of the rest of our roster—don’t forget about the EAW draft show next week!

Felix Hartley: Yes, I know, and I bet I’m already on everyone’s fucking radar, can’t wait to see who’s next to step up and try to take me down like it hasn’t already worked terribly for people like Serena and SOSA. :rolling_eyes: It’s all good though. After last night, after I made the entire world forget aaaall about the New Breed Majesty—because it’s all about the New Breed Stallion now—I can forget that this dumb ass rivalry ever even started. Just like I did when it came to his bitch, I can move on to bigger and better things real easily. Right now I’m in countdown mode, ready to fuck with real competition. And I’m itching at the chance to prove all of you wrong again, I’m getting off on the idea of—

???: Still can’t keep my fuckin’ name outcha mouth, huh?

(Serena Bennett steps into the frame, the crowd in the arena begins to cheer wildly as her face and fresh shade of beautiful purple hair appears on the large tron in the stadium. She wears a custom made Fenty x Puma jersey dress and a baby pink AKA jacket over it.)

Serena Bennett: Now, now, now, don’t waste your breath, I bet I already know what you gon’ say—talk some shit about how I couldn’t get the job done last night, right? Brag and boast about how you got your lil’ Pain for Pride moment, when I still didn’t uhuh, go ahead. I’ll wait.

Felix Hartley: Well, if you asked—wait. :eyes: You’re *asking* me to make fun of you? What’s the catch? Not gonna snap on me again, are you? Please don’t tell me you wanna get your ass handed to you again, you should save yourself the embarrassment.

Serena Bennett: (She laughs.) Bitch, please, I came over here to congratulate you, dumbass. I mean, um—of course I tuned into the title match last night, my man was in it and all, you know, and I gotta hand it to you, you did well out there. No, I’m not sorry ‘bout that all that happened over the last few months, you still annoying as ever and all but—you put on an incredible match, cuz. SOSA might’ve bit off more than he can chew, and I’m not afraid to tell him that myself, either. No, I’m not kissin’ up or nothin’, but I know that I even made the mistake of doubtin’ you myself at first and—fuck it, you know what I’m tryna say. Don’t make me spell it out for you, you ain’t that stupid, now, c’mon.

(Serena folds her arms over her chest and looks down at her feet. The crowd in the arena murmurs in confusion as Felix stares blankly at the inaugural Universal Women’s Champion—belt or no belt :troll: )

Felix Hartley: Wow. Um. Not gonna lie, this is pretty weird.

Serena Bennett: Believe me, it’s worse for me than it is for you. But forreal. Nice work out there, sis.

(Serena Bennett gives Felix Hartley a quick up and down look before turning swiftly on her heels and walking off.)

Felix Hartley: Serena, wait…

(Serena turns back around as Felix is calling after her.)

Felix Hartley: I um—the hair it’s—it’s a good—looks nice.

(The camera shows Serena who smiles and winks at Felix before turning back around and skipping off. Felix Hartley lets out a chuckle as she brushes past Kathy Kush and walks off in the opposite direction. Kathy Kush smiles into the camera, relieved that she wasn’t in the midst of another physical altercation.)

Kathy Kush: Stew-O, Deadprez…back to you two at ringside in the Mercedes-Benz Stadium!

(Pain for Pride cuts from backstage and returns to the ring area. Showdown ring announcer, Gina Romano is standing by. She smiles as the crowd erupts over the match graphic that just flashed on the screen.)

(The camera shows the Cash in the Vault briefcase hanging high above the ring.)

Gina Romano: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS THE CASH IN THE VAULT LADDER MATCH!!!

(The lights inside Mercedes-Benz Stadium dim, which whips the crowd into an even bigger frenzy. A familiar voice comes across the public address system.)

Voiceover: I was born into this… won’t hesitate to use my fists… break the cuffs around my wrists…

(A video montage depicting the triumphs and tragedies that have plagued ‘The Bird of Prey’ this season plays as “Mark My Words” by Doll Skin begins to blare. White pyro explodes from the stage and Raven Roberts walks out. She looks flawless.)

Gina Romano: INTRODUCING FIRST… NOW RESIDING IN LAS VEGAS, NEVADA… SHE IS ‘THE BIRD OF PREY’ RAVEN ROBERTS!!!!

(Raven has a confident look on her face as she strolls down the ramp. She takes a moment to soak in the energy from the crowd and as she makes her way to the ring, Raven stops. She looks up at the briefcase that is hanging high above the ring and nods her head. She knows that this is her moment.)

(Raven slips into the ring, removes her trademark wings, and gets set for her last and perhaps biggest match of the season.)

(“Engines of Hate” by Nevermore begins to play and all those cheers for Raven turn into jeers. No one seems excited to see this next competitor.)

Gina Romano: INTRODUCING OUR NEXT COMPETITOR… FROM ANCHORAGE, ALASKA… HE IS THE ‘KODIAK KILLER’ ADAM GRAVES!!!!

(Showdown’s Adam Graves walks onto the stage and he is laser focused. He storms down to the ring, and the crowd can’t help but be impressed by his size and stature. Graves is definitely the most impressive competitor in this match physically, and he shoots a glare over at Raven as he gets into the ring. Raven simply rolls her eyes, clearly not impressed with anything as it relates to Adam Graves.)

(“Young and Bitter” by Hot Tag Media soon replaces Graves theme song and two dancing sharks wearing Beats headphones make their way on stage. Fire erupts from the stage, shocking the shit out of everyone, and through the fire emerges the hometown hero himself… the one and only, Lucas Johnson. Lucas is wearing his own pair of Beats, and is bopping his head to whatever music he listens to on his way to the ring, and behind him stands ‘The Hitch’ clapping for his client rather enthusiastically.)

Gina Romano: INTRODUCING NEXT… FROM RIGHT HERE IN ATLANTA, GEORGIA… LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… GIVE IT UP FOR… THE WRESTLING MACHINE… LUCAS JOHNSON!!!!

(The crowd gives Lucas a mixed reaction, but Lucas and Hitch are so confident tonight. They smile and make their way to the ring, while the Sharks continue to do their thing on the stage. Lucas slips into the ring, removes his headphones, and poses for the crowd.)

(Lucas’ theme fades out and is replaced by “Castle” by Halsey. The second Harlow Reichert steps onto the stage, she looks around in amazement.)

Gina Romano: INTRODUCING NEXT… FROM CHRISTCHURCH, NEW ZEALAND… SHE IS ‘MISS NO FUCKS GIVEN’ HARLOW REICHERT!!!!

(The crowd gives Harlow a nice pop, and she takes in the moment. It’s a big deal for her, and she’s not hiding her feelings about it. Harlow takes a deep breath before she makes her way into the ring, and she walks all the way over to the furthest corner.)

(“Halo” by Machine Head begins to play next. The crowd begins to jeer as one of the newest, and brightest talents to sign with EAW walks onto stage.)

Gina Romano: INTRODUCING NEXT… FROM OSLO, NORWAY… HE IS ‘THE LEGACY’ VIC VENOM!!!!

(The Showdown Elitist nods his head as he walks onto the stage for his very first ever Pain for Pride. Vic seems to be enjoying the moment, even if the crowd doesn’t care for his presence. After a moment of just taking it all in, Vic begins to walk down the ramp. He stops to look at the briefcase, and to appreciate the fact he’s made it further in this business than his father ever did, and then he slides inside. He pays no attention to his fellow competitors.)

(“It Ain’t Safe” by Skepta begins to play next and the crowd inside Mercedes-Benz Stadium absolutely loses their shit.)

Gina Romano: INTRODUCING NEXT… FROM TOWER HAMLETS, LONDON… HE IS… now wait just a second…

(The camera cuts to Gina, who glances down at the index card in her hand.)

Gina Romano: Fuck outta here…

(Jordie Ripley steps onto the stage and she has a microphone in her hand. The dainty blonde queen clears her throat and taps the microphone.)

Jordie Ripley: Ohmygawd! Hi! 😀

Crowd: SLUT! SLUT! SLUT! SLUT! SLUT! SLUT! SLUT! SLUT!

Jordie Ripley: Please don’t talk about Raven that way! She’s right there in the ring! But what you should do show the proper respect to the man who is about to win the 2019 Cash in the Vault ladder match! Since Gina won’t do her job, I’ll do it for her… LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… PLEASE WELCOME THE SEXIST, GREATEST, MOST PERFECT MAN IN THE WORLD… HE IS THE BEST TECHNICAL WRESTLER IN ALL OF EAW… THE TRUE DEATHMATCH KING… AND HE IS MY BOYFRIEND :heart_eyes: CHARLIE MARR!!!!

(Jordie starts clapping excitedly as Charlie Marr walks on stage. The crowd is not impressed, even though there are a few women with low self esteem who seem to be excited. Jordie plants a kiss on her man’s lips, and they walk down the ramp, arm-in-arm. Jordie climbs onto the apron, poses sexily, and sits down on the ropes for Charlie. Charlie gets into the ring and narrows his piercing blue eyes at his competition. Everyone looks ready to kill him.)

(The instrumental version of “You Only Live Once” by Suicide Silence begins to play next. Damon Diesel steps onto the stage.)

Gina Romano: INTRODUCING NEXT… FROM ORLANDO, FLORIDA… HE IS ‘THE UNCHAINED BEAST’ DAMON DIESEL!!!!

(The crowd heavily boos Damon as he makes his way to the ring. Damon doesn’t care and remains focused on this match. He has a lot on the line tonight, and he wants to win just as badly as everyone else does. Damon slides into the ring and finds a place to stand, which means only one competitor is left.)

(The lights go completely black. All attention is to the stage as we see the screen go dark. A bright red N appears.)

(Netflix logo flashes.)

(On the screen we see what looks like an Arabian city. We see people walking around a market, kids playing in the streets, as white bold letters appear on the tron.)

City of AGRABAH

(A gang of men in full Arabian garb storm out from the stage entrance with swords in hand.)

Choir: Make way for Prince Vizzy! Say hey! It’s Prince Vizzy!

(We hear several voices as the crowd realizes who is coming. Out from behind the curtain appears Will Smith and the crowd pops for The Fresh Prince. Will Smith is smiling ear to ear, wearing full Arabian gear and appears just as he did as The Genie in the movie Aladdin.)

Stew-O: The king of grand entrances looks to be making his biggest one yet!

Dead Prez: How much of that Netflix budget is this guy blowing with all this?

Stew-O: Arguably the rookie of the year even though he hates the word rookie, The Visual Prophet is one of two Voltage reps for this year’s Cash in the Vault ladder match. He’s been very vocal about fixing EAW and making it beautiful. Winning Cash in the Vault and staying aligned with Veena Adams on Voltage where he helped give her that title would make them one of the most powerful duos in EAW!

Will Smith: Hey! Clear the way in the old bazaar, Hey you! Let us through! It’s a brand new star! Oh come, be the first on your block to meet his eye!

(Will Smith is riding a float surrounded by beautiful women as his hat explodes into confetti and golden sparks fall down on to the stage.)

Will Smith: Make way! Here he comes!
Ring bells! Bang the drums!
You’re gonna love this guy!

(Suddenly, from the side of the stage appears an elephant. On the back of the Elephant sits Nina dressed like Abu the monkey, Veena Adams dressed like Princess Jasmin, and in front of them both sits The Visual Prophet dressed like Aladdin in his Prince Ali attire.)

Deadprez: There goes the devils themselves!

Stew-O: From Wolf fur coats, to a purple tank, to a Rocky styled attire, to waving the North Korean flag in South Korea…Viz always makes every marquee event entrance something special. Like him or not, it’s hard to ignore The Sovereign!

Will Smith: Prince Vizzy! Fabulous he!
Vizzy Ababwa!
Show some respect, boy, genuflect, down on one knee!
Now, try your best to stay calm
Brush up your Friday salaam
Then come and meet his spectacular coterie!!!

(Viz, Veena, and Nina continue riding the elephant around as the extras dance together in unison and Will Smith makes his way to the ring and continues singing.)

Will Smith: Prince VIZZY!
Mighty is he!
Vizzy Ababwa
Strong as ten regular men, definitely!
He’s faced the galloping hordes
A hundred bad guys with swords
Who sent those goons to their lords?
Why, Prince Vizzy!

(Viz smiles ear to ear as confetti rains from the ceiling. Viz, Veena, and Nina slide off the elephant in to the arms of strong, hairy men and manage to walk towards the stage.)

Will Smith: Fellas!!!

Men in Choir: He’s got seventy-five golden camels!

(We see a plethora of golden camels on the tron as Will continues dancing.)

Will Smith: Woo, uh-huh, now the ladies, what he got?

Women in Choir: Purple peacocks, he’s got fifty-three!

(On the screen now appears purple peacocks all over.)

Will Smith: Uh-huh, uh-huh, uh-huh
When it comes to exotic-type mammals, everybody help me out!

Choir: He’s got a zoo
I’m telling you, it’s a world-class menagerie!!!!

Stew-O: By the time this ends we will be starting season 13!

Deadprez: I’m going to kill myself before this ends, Stew-O!

(Visual Prophet proudly walks to the ring as Veena and Nina remain on stage dancing and clapping. Armed guards line up side by side on the ramp as Vizzy struts to the ring and Will Smith stands in the ring singing on.)

Will Smith: Prince Vizzy! Handsome is he, Vizzy Ababwa
That physique! How can I speak, weak at my knees, you yummy boy!
So, get on out in that square
Adjust your veil and prepare
To gawk and grovel and stare at Prince VIZZY!!

Choir: He’s got ninety-five white Persian monkeys

(All 95 Persian Monkeys are on the tron going wild.)

Will Smith: He got the monkeys, a bunch of monkeys

Choir: And to view them he charges no fee

Nina: Bae generous, so generous!!

(Nina begins twerking on Veena who instantly is turned off and stops dancing.)

Choir: He’s got 10,000 servants and flunkies
Proud to work for him!
They bow to his whim love serving him
They’re just lousy with loyalty to Ali! Prince Ali!
Prince Vizzzzzzzzzzzzzzzy!!!

(Visual Prophet stands ringside looking as if he was about to enter it but he takes his time and walks around the ring as Will Smith continues on.)

Will Smith and Choir: Prince VIZZY! Amorous he! Vizzy Ababwa!

Will Smith: Heard your CITV was TONIGHT!! Where is it?

(Viz slides in the ring and stands next to Will Smith as they both look up towards the ceiling looking for that CITV briefcase.)

Will Smith: And that, good people, is why he got all cute and dropped by…

(Will Smith slides out the ring and joins the Arabian crowd forming ring side full of guards and belly dancers.)

Will Smith and Choir: With sixty elephants, llamas galore (For real!?)
With his bears and lions, a brass band and more (What?)
With his forty fakirs, his cooks, his bakers
His birds that warble on key
Make way for Prince Vizzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzy!!!

(Will Smith stands ringside as the crowd of extras begin to dance their way backstage. Will Smith raises his hands high, as Visual Prophet goes to the turnbuckle and climbs it.)

Will Smith: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN…HE HAILS FROM AGRABAH BY WAY OF DETROIT, MICHIGAN…WEIGHING IN AT 240 POUNDS…THE VISUAL PROPHET!

(Viz tosses his Arabian crown into the crowd, spreads his arms, leans his head back, and poses as a golden shower of sparks rains down all over him and all 70k fans boo him loudly.)

(All other Cash in the Vault competitors are ready to murder The Visual Prophet. Nina and Veena take their leave and eventually Will Smith leaves the ringside area as well. Viz continues to take in the moment, and bask in his own glory, and the referee inside the ring signals for the bell.)

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Stew-O: I don’t know about you Deadprez, but I’m pumped! We’ve had to wait all weekend for the 2019 Cash in the Vault match to happen, and it’s finally underway!!!

Deadprez: ALL EIGHT COMPETITORS RUN AT ONE ANOTHER AND FISTS ARE FLYING!

DeadPrez: :lupe:

Stew-O: ON THE OUTSIDE, LUCAS AND VIZ ARE BOTH SHAKING OUT THE COBWEBS AND THEY BOTH ARE SEARCHING FOR LADDERS!!! THEY EACH GRAB A LADDER FROM UNDERNEATH THE RING AND SLIDE THEM INSIDE!

Stew-O: BUT IT’S ALL FOR NAUGHT! RAVEN ROBERTS HAS A FIRM HOLD AROUND THE BRIEFCASE! AND SHE UNHOOKS IT!!! RAVEN ROBERTS IS YOUR 2019 CASH IN THE VAULT WINNER!!!!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Gina Romano: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… HERE IS YOUR WINNER AND THE 2019 CASH IN THE VAULT WINNER… RAVEN ROBERTS!!!!

(Raven’s new theme music rips across the PA system, but it’s her cries that fill the stadium. Raven positions herself on top of the ladder, and looks down at the Cash in the Vault briefcase. Disbelief, joy, wonder, and sheer happiness fill her eyes. She is panting, out of breath, having worked her ass off, and all season really for this moment. The crowd is on their feet, giving Raven a standing ovation. Tears fill Raven’s eyes as she hugs the briefcase to her chest.)

DeadPrez: WHAT A MOMENT FOR RAVEN ROBERTS!!!

Stew-O: Raven has experienced the highest of highs, and the lowest of lows this season, and has gone through a complete and total evolution. Her growth as a person and as a competitor has been second to none and this is one of the most deserved wins I have ever seen. Raven Roberts is going to be a world champion.

DeadPrez: And it’s going to be decided on her terms this go around, and not on anyone else’s.

(Raven continues to hug her briefcase and finally allows herself to look out at the crowd. Seeing the fans cheer for her and embrace her truly make the moment nearly perfect. Raven holds the briefcase up and touches her hand to her heart. She looks at the Pain for Pride sign, and then she takes another look around the arena.)

(Standing on the stage is Rex McAllister and he is clapping. Raven sees him standing there and she shakes her head, but she can’t stop the smile from spreading across her face. She climbs down from the ladder, and heads out of the ring, still hugging her briefcase. Rex and Raven meet at the halfway point of the ramp and Raven throws her arms around Rex. Rex hugs her tightly and for the briefest moments, it’s like only the two of them exist.)

(The crowd is beside themselves as Fire and Ice embrace one another. They finally break apart and Rex takes Raven hand, raising it in the air. Raven holds the briefcase up, and that’s when Pain for Pride fades to a commercial after getting one last shot of a victorious Raven.)

:wow:

(Commercial break for the upcoming EAW Draft, live from the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans!!! Find out where your favorite male and female Elitists go next Sunday!)

(As the lights dim in the arena, a hush falls over the crowd. The titantron screen illuminates and we see a hooded figure standing in front of the camera in a dark room. A woman’s voice rips through the speakers.)

*“And I will strike down upon thee”*

(The hooded figure can’t be made out. They step slightly out of frame and we can see behind them, clear as day, one of the infamous robes of Kendra Shamez. It is displayed back-first to the camera so everyone can read her name engraved on the back.)

*“With great vengeance and furious anger,”*

(The hooded figure approaches the robe and turns to the camera for a second. You still can’t make out their face.)

*“Those who attempt to poison and destroy my sisters.”*

(They strike a match, holding the flame in front of them for a moment, before then holding it to the robe)

*“And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee.”*

(Slowly the fire begins to engulf the robe. The figure walks out of frame and we are left with the image of the robe entirely in flames on the screen.)

*“Hallelujah, I’m a freak, I’m a freak, hallelujah
Every day of the week, I’ma do ya like I want ya
I’m a Nile crocodile, a piranha.”*

(Miley Cryus’ voice takes over the speaker system as flames shoot up from the left and right side of the stage. A figure emerges from behind the stage, and it’s the same hooded figure that we saw previously.)

*“Oh my God, she got the power
Oh, look at her, she got the power”*

(The figure stands in the centre of the stage, head down so you can’t make out who it is. But we all have our suspicions.)

*“Don’t fuck with my freedom
I came up to get me some”*

(As soon as the words ‘Don’t fuck with my freedom’ play over the speakers, the figure sheds their hood and the lights in the arena focus on her. As the jacket drops to the floor, Tyler Wolfe stands tall and proud on the entrance ramp for her first ever Pain for Pride singles match. The crowd erupts in mixed reactions, like they always do for the Walking Weapon. She looks focused as she raises one arm into the air, slowly turning it around to show a middle finger to the camera.)

“Fuck you Kendra.” (She says. We can’t hear her but if you can read lips, you can make it out.)

(As Miley Cyrus’ “Mother’s Daughter” continues to play over the PA, Tyler makes her way down the ring, looking focused and angry as ever.)

Maria Del Rey: The following is a no holds barred match scheduled for one fall! Approaching the ring first, from Sydney, Australia… TYLLLLLLERRRRRRR WOLLLLLFFFFFFEEEEE!!

CJ Hana: And for Tyler Wolfe this is a LONG time coming. The days and weeks leading up to this match have probably felt like months and years to her! Kendra Shamez has put this woman through hell, completely abusing her power! Costing her what was a near guaranteed victory for the Women’s World Championship. Attacking her over and over again and then not even letting Tyler retaliate until now because of a restraining order! Well I’ll tell you… Kendra better watch out.

Gavin Kirkland: Um… are we forgetting that this ALL started because Tyler attacked Kendra for no good reason?

(CJ Hana goes for a response but she’s cut off as all the lights in the stadium turn a deep blue. “Needles and Pins” by Deftones hits and Kendra Shamez walks onto the top of the ramp with her signature robe with her last name, “SHAMEZ” printed on the back. A platform lifts her into the air as her robe begins to sparkle against the night sky. She’s met with a loud mixed reaction from the crowd. The platform sets her down again and she does one last spin to show off the robe before making her way down to the ring)

Maria Del Rey: And her opponent, from Buffalo, New York… KEEENNDDDDRRRRAAAAAA SHAAAAMMMEEEEEEZZZZ!!

CJ Hana: A far more classic entrance tonight for Kendra Shamez as she–

Gavin Kirkland: YES BECAUSE KENDRA HAS CLASS!! SHE HAS EVERYTHING, SHE IS EVERYTHING!! And YOU’RE telling Tyler Wolfe to watch out? No. Tyler has constantly been a thorn, a pest in the side of Kendra Shamez for months now, she’s insubordinate, careless, reckless. She’s stabbed people in the back, she’s proven time and time again that she cares about no one other than herself. TONIGHT Kendra Shamez is going to teach her a lesson!

(DING! DING! DING!)

Gavin Kirkland: AND IMMEDIATELY AT THE SOUND OF THE BELL WOLFE RUSHES AT KENDRA, OH NO KENDRA!! SHE LEAPS ONTO HER, FORCING HER INTO THE CORNER, PUMMELING AWAY AT HER!! RIGHTS AND LEFTS… CLUBBING BLOWS OVER THE BACK OF KENDRA SHAMEZ!! I KNOW IT’S NO HOLDS BARRED BUT C’MON REF DO SOMETHING!! TYLER HAS FORCED KENDRA INTO A SEATED POSITION IN THE CORNER, BUT SHE’S STILL PUMMELING AWAY, SHOWING NO SIGNS OF LETTING UP!! AND THIS CROWD IS EATING IT UP!! WITH EACH BLOW IT SEEMS LIKE THEY’RE GETTING LOUDER WHICH SEEMS TO BE FUELING TYLER!! SHUT UP!!

CJ Hana: THERE’S NO CHANCE OF THAT, KIRKLAND!! SHE’S WANTED THIS SO BAD, EVER SINCE THAT RESTRAINING ORDER WAS PUT IN PLACE… SHE’S PROBABLY LITERALLY DREAMED ABOUT THIS MOMENT, GETTING HER HANDS ON KENDRA SHAMEZ!! She slows her pace here before delivering a few final blows over the back. She FINALLY backs off Kendra, stepping back into the middle of the ring… BUT NOW SHE COMES CHARGING AGAIN… WITH A KNEE RIGHT TO THE FACE!! KENDRA’S FACE MEETS TYLER’S KNEE AND THE BACK OF HER HEAD MEETS THE BOTTOM TURNBUCKLE!! TYLER ROLLS OUT OF THE RING AND LIFTS UP THE RING APRON AS KENDRA CRAWLS OUT OF THE CORNER AND COLLAPSES INTO THE CENTER OF THE RING!!

Gavin Kirkland: I can only IMAGINE what kind of wicked instruments are underneath this ring! Tyler is a usually a proud non-weapon user but OF COURSE she’s going to use them tonight!… OH NO WHAT’S A CHAIN DOING UNDER THE RING?! Tyler wraps one end of the chain around her hand and begins stepping back into the ring… KENDRA LOOKS UP AT THE IMMENSE LED SCREEN WE HAVE SET UP BY THE STAGE AND SHE CAN SEE TYLER COMING TOWARDS HER… SHE TRIES TO MAKE A MOVE TO SCURRY OUT OF THE RING, BUT TYLER LIFTS THAT CHAIN HIGH ABOVE HER HEAD AND… OH I CAN’T LOOK!!

CJ Hana: SHE WHIPS IT OVER THE BACK OF KENDRA SHAMEZ!! SHE RAISES THE CHAIN UP AND DOES IT FOR A SECOND TIME… A THIRD… FOURTH… AND A FIFTH!! FIVE SHOTS, FIVE GOOD SHOTS ACROSS THE ENTIRE BACK OF KENDRA SHAMEZ WITH THAT CHAIN, AND CAN WE… WOULD IT BE POSSIBLE TO ZOOM IN ON KENDRA’S BACK?! IT LOOKS NASTY!!

(We transition to a different camera which is able to zoom in and get a good shot of Kendra Shamez’ back. The chain has left an imprint on Kendra Shamez, her back is red and raw, beginning to trickle blood)

Gavin Kirkland: NOBODY WANTS TO SEE THAT!! AND NOW WHAT’S SHE DOING?! TYLER STANDS OVER KENDRA SHAMEZ, SHE ENCASES HER OTHER HAND AROUND THE END OF THE CHAIN, AND NOW FROM BEHIND WRAPS IT AROUND KENDRA’S NECK!! SHE’S CHOKING HER!! WITH THAT CHAIN, THAT DAMN STEEL CHAIN, SHE’S QUICKLY SUCKING THE LIFE OUT OF KENDRA SHAMEZ!! KENDRA REACHES OUT TOWARDS THE ROPES, SHE CAN’T REACH THEM… BUT EVEN IF SHE COULD, IT WOULDN’T DO ANYTHING!! KENDRA TRIES TO PRY THE CHAIN AWAY, TRYING TO LOOSEN THE PRESSURE ON HER NECK AND THROAT BUT TYLER ISN’T LETTING THAT HAPPEN, SHE REARS BACK EVEN HARDER WITH THE CHAIN, GAINING EVEN MORE LEVERAGE AS SHE GETS A FOOT UP AND DIGS IT INTO KENDRA’S SPINE!!

CJ Hana: TYLER SCREAMS AS SHE CONTINUES TO APPLY MORE AND MORE PRESSURE!! KENDRA’S FACE IS AS RED AS A TOMATO, THE REFEREE RIGHT IN FRONT OF KENDRA RIGHT HERE NOW, ASKING HER IF SHE WANTS TO GIVE UP, IS KENDRA SHAMEZ ABOUT TO SUBMIT?! I’M NOT SO SURE KENDRA CAN EVEN ANSWER!! I DON’T THINK THERE’S ANY ESCAPE FOR KENDRA HERE, TYLER HAS HER!! THAT CHAIN, DIGGING INTO THE NECK OF KENDRA, CUTTING OFF HER AIR SUPPLY, POSSIBLY CUTTING OFF HER BLOOD SUPPLY, KENDRA’S FACE IS PAST RED NOW, IT’S STARTING TO TURN PURPLE!! HER EYES ARE BULGING OUT OF HER HEAD!!

Gavin Kirkland: IT’S NOT WORTH IT KENDRA!!

CJ Hana: SHE RAISES HER HAND, SHE’S GOING TO TAP!!

Gavin Kirkland: BUT TYLER RELASES!! TYLER RELASES THE CHAIN, RELEASES KENDRA WHO COLLAPSES, GASPING FOR AIR!!

CJ Hana: Tyler Wolfe shakes her head and says, “No, we’re not ending this yet!” And I assure you all of this, Tyler isn’t even going to contemplate winning this match until she’s satisfied with what she’s done to Kendra Shamez!

Gavin Kirkland: And I assure YOU that will be her downfall!

CJ Hana: Tyler unwraps the chain from her hand and drops it, and wow, look! Tyler was gripping that chain so hard, her own hands are bleeding! Kendra is still trying to catch her breath, she slowly moves her way over to the edge of the ring, to the ropes, trying to push her way up to a vertical base… BUT TYLER WITH A VICIOUS STOMP RIGHT TO THE HEAD!! Tyler once again leaves the ring and pulls up the apron… looking for another weapon to bring into this match!

Gavin Kirkland: Where could you POSSIBLY go after a steel chain?

CJ Hana: A STEEL WRENCH!!

Gavin Kirkland: A WRENCH??!!! WHATEVER HAPPENED TO THE GOOD OL’ FASHIONED KENDO STICK?!

CJ Hana: TYLER ENTERS THE RING WITH THE WRENCH, KENDRA IS TO HER FEET THOUGH AND SHE TURNS TO MEET TYLER, SHE SWINGS WITH A RIGHT HAND BUT IT’S DUCKED, KENDRA’S MOMENTUM CAUSES HER TO WILDLY DART FORWARD, IT TAKES HER OFF HER FEET… BUT SHE QUICKLY SCRAMBLES BACK TO THEM, SHE TURNS AROUND… AND TYLER CLOCKS HER RIGHT BETWEEN THE EYES, CENTER OF THE SKULL WITH THAT WRENCH!! KENDRA STIFFENS AND DROP BACKWARDS, ALMOST LIKE A TREE FALLING IN A FOREST!! WHAT A SOUND THAT MADE!! TYLER PACES AROUND THE RING WITH THE WRENCH STILL IN HER HAND, WAITING FOR KENDRA TO STIR!!

Gavin Kirkland: WHAT DOES THIS SADIST HAVE IN MIND NOW?! HOW IS THERE EVEN A WRENCH UNDER THE RING?! SURELY WHEN YOU’RE DONE SETTING IT UP YOU TAKE THE TOOLS BACK WITH YOU, THIS HAS TO BE A VIOLATION OF SOME KIND!! Kendra has managed to roll over onto her stomach, now onto her knees… slowly but surely making progress as she tries to get back to her feet… BUT TYLER POUNCES ON HER WITH THAT WRENCH, GRABBING KENDRA’S RIGHT ARM HERE AND… WHAT’S SHE DOING?! CJ!! WHAT IS SHE DOING?! SHE HAS THE WRENCH, SHE HAS KENDRA’S ARM, NO HER HAND… OH NO!!

CJ Hana: THAT WRENCH HAS AN ADJUSTABLE MECHANISM ON IT, AND SHE’S OPENED IT WIDER TO GET IT TO FIT AROUND THE RING FINGER OF KENDRA SHAMEZ’ RIGHT HAND!! AND NOW SHE’S TIGHTENING IT BACK UP… KENDRA REALIZES WHAT’S GOING ON HERE, SHE TRIES TO CLAW AT TYLER WITH HER LEFT HAND… BUT TYLER MANAGES TO NEUTRALIZE IT!! MOMENTARILY STOPPING WHAT SHE’S DOING WITH THE WRENCH TO SWITCH POSITIONS AND PUT HER BODY WEIGHT ON KENDRA’S LEFT ARM!!… NOW BACK TO THE WRENCH, SHE CONTINUES TO TIGHTEN AROUND THE FINGER OF KENDRA SHAMEZ… AND NOW SHE STARTS TWISTING THE WRENCH AS IF SHE’S TIGHTENING A SCREW!! TWISTING THE WRENCH AROUND THE FINGER OF KENDRA SHAMEZ!!

Gavin Kirkland: :damn: I’M GONNA BE SICK… I’M GONNA FAINT… I CAN’T WATCH THIS!!!

CJ Hana: AND WITH EACH TWIST KENDRA LETS OUT A BLOOD CURDLING SCREAM… THERE’S NO TELLING WHAT KIND OF DAMAGE IS BEING DONE TO KENDRA’S FINGER, POSSIBLE NERVE DAMAGE, YOU CAN SEE THAT TYLER HAS BROKEN SKIN, SHE’S CREATED A RING OF BLOOD AND GOD KNOWS WHAT OTHER KIND OF TISSUE AROUND KENDRA’S FINGER!! AND NOW TYLER IS TRYING TO MAKE THE WRENCH EVEN TIGHTER, AS TIGHT AS SHE POSSIBLY CAN, ALL THE WHILE SHE CONTINUES TO TWIST AND TWIST… TEARS ARE BEGINNING TO STREAM DOWN THE FACE OF KENDRA SHAMEZ… AND IT’S WORTH NOTING THAT THE INITIAL BLOW WITH THE WRENCH CAUSED KENDRA TO BE BUSTED OPEN, SO IT’S A WATERFALL OF BOTH BLOOD AND TEARS POURING OFF OF KENDRA HERE!!

Gavin Kirkland: SHE’S GONNA TWIST HER FINGER OFF, SOMEONE STOP THIS MANIAC!! OH GOD CJ CAN THAT ACTUALLY HAPEN?! IS TYLER TRYING TO RIP KENDRA’S FINGER OFF?!

CJ Hana: I DON’T THINK THE WRENCH CAN GET THROUGH BONE BUT IT DAMN SURE CAN GET DOWN TO IT… KENDRA’S SCREAMS AND CRIES HAVE TURNED INTO INCOMPREHENSIBLE SOUNDS… GRUNTS… SHE’S TRYING TO WITHSTAND THE PAIN, TRYING TO DO SOMETHING… ANYTHING HERE!! AND OH!! SHE MAY HAVE JUST DONE SOMETHING!! SHE SLIPS OUT FROM UNDERNEATH THE WEIGHT OF TYLER WOLFE… SHE GETS HER LEFT ARM FREE… AND NOW SHE SWINGS IT, CATCHING TYLER IN THE JAW… SHE DOES IT A SECOND TIME… AND THIS ONE ROCKS TYLER, CAUSING HER TO DROP THE WRENCH… BUT IT’S STILL WRAPPED AROUND KENDRA’S FINGER… THAT’S HOW TIGHT SHE HAS IT!! KENDRA NOW WITH A BOOT… TWO BOOTS… THREE BOOTS TO TYLER AND THE THIRD SENDS HER OUT OF THE RING!!

Gavin Kirkland: SHE SAVED HERSELF!! KENDRA SCREAMS AS SHE LOOSENS THE WRENCH AND PULLS IT OFF HER FINGER, OH THAT FINGER IS ABSOLUTELY MANGLED!! AND NOW HERE SHE IS, TRYING TO GET BACK TO HER FEET… BUT HERE COMES TYLER WOLFE, SHE WASN’T OUT OF COMMISSION FOR LONG!! KENDRA DOESN’T SEE HER EITHER!! SHE HAS HER BACK TURNED… TYLER TURNS HER AROUND… BUT KENDRA… LOOK AT KENDRA!! SHE HAS THE CHAIN WRAPPED AROUND HER LEFT HAND!! SHE GOES AT TYLER WITH IT… AND IT CONNECTS!! THAT LEFT CONNECTING FLUSH!! YES, LET’S GO!! C’MON KENDRA!! SHE COCKS BACK AND DELIVERS A SECOND, AND THIS ONE IS ENOUGH TO TAKE TYLER OFF HER FEET!!

CJ Hana: These would be far more effective if Kendra was able to use her dominant hand but they’re effective nonetheless! For the first time in this match it seems like momentum may be swinging to her side! SHE JUMPS HIGH INTO THE AIR AND FORCES HER HAND DOWN AS SHE DELIVERS A THIRD PUNCH TO THE DOWNED TYLER WOLFE, RIGHT TO THE JAW!! And now Kendra drops the chain as it’s her turn to look for a weapon outside of the ring… she lifts up the apron and finds what she wants rather quickly! There’s the kendo stick you were calling for earlier Gavin!

Gavin Kirkland: :wow: A classic woman. Kendra in the ring now… Tyler pulling herself up… BUT KENDRA SWINGS… WITH THE KENDO STICK AND… YES!! RIGHT ACROSS TYLER’S SPINE!! HEY BATTER, BATTER… SWING!! A SECOND ONE!! AND NOW IT’S TYLER’S TURN TO WRITHE IN PAIN ON THE CANVAS AND IT’S KENDRA’S TURN TO DELIVER THE PUNISHMENT!!… KENDRA STANDS OVER HER… SHE DELIVERS A THIRD SHOT WITH THE KENDO STICK, EACH ONE LOUDER THAN THE LAST!! LOUD, WHIPPING, CRACKING SOUNDS THAT ECHO THROUGHOUT THIS STADIUM… TYLER ROLLS ONTO HER BACK TO STOP ANY FURTHER DAMAGE TO IT… BUT THAT’S NOT GOING TO STOP KENDRA!!

CJ Hana: SHE TAKES THE STICK AND WHIPS IT A FEW TIMES ACROSS THE STOMACH OF TYLER!! TYLER TRYING TO PULL HERSELF UNDER THE ROPES… BUT THERE’S KENDRA AGAIN WITH ANOTHER SHOT!! TYLER PULLS HERSELF OUT OF THE RING, PLOPPING ONTO THE FLOOR… BUT KENDRA’S RIGHT THERE TO FOLLOW HER!! AND ANOTHER SHOT WITH THE KENDO STICK!! Tyler now on the outside, trying to create distance from Kendra but it’s not working… matching her tempo… and being methodical with that kendo stick! Delivering methodical shots, continuing to wear down Tyler Wolfe!

Gavin Kirkland: But Kendra seems to have exhausted that kendo stick! It’s fraying and beginning to come apart… she tosses it to the side… Tyler Wolfe is using the ring apron to pull herself up… AND HERE COMES KENDRA CHARGING!!… BUT TYLER WITH A DROP TOE HOLD RIGHT INTO THE STEEL STEPS!! NO!! KENDRA IS ABLE TO GET HER HANDS UP TO BLOCK IT, BUT IN THE PROCESS AGGRAVATES THAT BAD FINGER… SHE LETS OUT AN EXPLETIVE, KENDRA, LANGUAGE!! Tyler goes to grab her but Kendra shoots her leg back and kicks Tyler in the stomach… SHE COMES CHARGING AT HER AGAIN AND TAKES HER OFF HER FEET WITH A CLOTHESLINE!!

CJ Hana: Over by the ringside area now, Kendra tells the timekeeper to get up, she wants his chair. He obliges and now Kendra grips the chair, waiting for Tyler to make it back to her feet! She smacks it on the floor outside… Tyler is taking a while to get back to her feet and Kendra’s impatient! Finally Tyler’s up… KENDRA LETS IT FLY… RIGHT TO THE SKULL!! TYLER WOLFE, NO HANDS UP, NO BLOCKING, NOTHING… JUST A STRAIGHT STEEL CHAIR RIGHT TO THE SKULL, SHE LOOKS OUT OF IT, LEANED UP AGAINST THE APRON, THE ONLY THING KEEPING HER UP!!

Gavin Kirkland: THE BLONDE HAIR OF TYLER WOLFE BEING DYED RED HERE AS A HUGE WOUND HAS OPENED UP NEAR HER HAIRLINE!! KENDRA RAISES THE CHAIR OVER HER HEAD… AND SMASHES IT A SECOND TIME ACROSS THE HEAD OF TYLER!! TYLER CRUMPLES INTO A SEATED POSITION… HER HEAD UP AGAINST ONE OF THE LED BOARDS THAT SURROUND THE RING… KENDRA GRABS BOTH ARMS OF TYLER AND DELIVERS ALMOST STOMP LIKE BOOTS TO THE HEAD, AND WITH EACH ONE, TYLER’S HEAD GOES BOUNCING OFF THAT LED SCREEN!! I’VE LOST COUNT AT HOW MANY KENDRA HAS DELIVERED, IT MUST BE AT LEAST FIFTEEN NOW!!

CJ Hana: SHE GETS A FEW MORE IN BEFORE RELEASING THE ARMS OF TYLER AND ROLLING HER BACK INTO THE RING!! BEFORE SHE ALSO THROWS THE CHAIR INTO THE RING BEFORE GETTING HERSELF BACK IN… SHE GETS TYLER ONTO HER BACK AND HOOKS THE LEG, OH THIS COULD BE IT!!

ONEEE!!… TWOOO!!… BUT NO!!

Gavin Kirkland: Tyler Wolfe gets the shoulder up, Kendra glances over at the chair again, she digs it into the canvas as a way to aid herself back to her feet… she has it in her hand as Tyler begins to move, pushing herself up in the corner… KENDRA COMES RUNNING WITH THE CHAIR… BUT TYLER HAD IS SCOUTED, SHE DUCKS… WHICH CAUSES KENDRA TO DO AN AUDIBLE, SHE BRINGS THE CHAR DOWN ACROSS THE BACK OF TYLER, SHE OUTSMARTED HER… WHAT A QUEEN!! TYLER GRITS HER TEETH AS SHE DROPS BACK DOWN TO HER KNEES… KENDRA OFF THE ROPES… AND A SHOT TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD NOW!!

CJ Hana: She gets Tyler onto her back again… but this time doesn’t go for the pin! Instead she places the chair on top of Tyler Wolfe and… WHAT’S SHE THINKING HERE?! KENDRA HAS HER EYES SET ON THE TURNBUCKLE AS SHE HEADS TO THE APRON, TYLER WOLFE JUST RECEIVED ONE HELL OF A CHAIR SHOT TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD AND IT LOOKS LIKE THINGS COULD BE GETTING A LOT WORSE FOR HER!! KENDRA’S MOVING SLOW BUT SHE’S MAKING PROGRESS AS SHE GETS HER FOOT ON THE BOTTOM TURNBUCKLE AND BEGINS TO CLIMB!!

Gavin Kirkland: OH BE CAREFUL!! KENDRA’S AT THE TOP AND SHE HAS HER BACK TURNED TOWARDS TYLER… WE KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS!!… KENDRA SETS HERSELF AND LEAPS OFF… LOOKING FOR A MOONSAULT!! AND… NO TYLER!! TYLER STOOD THE CHAIR UP!! TYLER STOOD THE CHAIR UP AND KENDRA SHAMEZ WENT RIBS FIRST RIGHT INTO THE TOP OF THE STEEL CHAIR!! OH MY GOD… IS SHE DEAD?!

CJ Hana: NOT DEAD BUT IN A LOT OF PAIN, SHE’S ROLLING AROUND ON THE CANVAS HERE… AND SHE KNOWS SHE HAS TO GET AWAY FROM TYLER WOLFE HERE!! SHE ROLLS TO THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING AND… HEY WAIT… DID SHE JUST–

Gavin Kirkland(in hysterics, nearly crying): OH NO!!… OH WHY KENDRA!! WHY DID YOU HAVE TO DO IT?! :kellycry:

CJ Hana: Inside the ring, Tyler is making it back to her feet, and on the outside, SOMEHOW Kendra has already managed to make it to a knee… she’s up against the barricade, at this point she needs it to help stand on her feet. Tyler is up… SHE TAKES A QUICK GLANCE AT KENDRA AND NOW AT THE ROPES… SHE RUNS OFF THEM, RUNNING TO THE OTHER SIDE SHE DIVES THROUGH WITH A SUICIDE DIVE… BUT KENDRA BASHES THE WRENCH RIGHT INTO THE SKULL OF TYLER WOLFE, KNOCKING HER OUT OF THE AIR COMPLETELY!! THAT’S WHAT I WAS TRYING TO GET AT EARLIER WHEN YOU CUT ME OFF GAVIN, WHEN I SAW KENDRA ROLL OUT OF THE RING I SAW HER TAKE SOMETHING WITH HER, IT MUST HAVE BEEN THE WRENCH!! BRILLIANT!!

Gavin Kirkland: YES!! BRILLIANT!! KENDRA IS BRILLIANT!! NOW GET HER BACK IN THAT RING AND WIN THIS MATCH!! SHE HAS TO PICK UP THE DEAD WEIGHT OF TYLER WOLFE, AND THAT’S NO EASY TASK!! Not that Tyler is fat or anything, I mean she does have it in the right places but…

CJ Hana: FOCUS!!

Gavin Kirkland: KENDRA GETS TYLER BACK INTO THE RING AND PUSHES HER INTO THE CENTER!!… C’MON NOW, HOOK THE LEG!! KENDRA’S IN, SHE DIVES ON TOP OF TYLER AS THE REFEREE SLIDES INTO POSITION!!

ONEEE!!… TWOOO!!… NO!! DAMNIT IT’S STILL NOT ENOUGH!!

CJ Hana: TYLER WOLFE MANAGES TO KICK OUT AGAIN AND THIS TIME KENDRA IS A BIT FAZED… STUNNED SHE SCOOTS BACK INTO CORNER, TYLER IS ON HER STOMACH AND CRAWLING TOWARDS THE OTHER CORNER… AND IT WOULD APPEAR AS IF KENDRA IS GONNA LET HER GET BACK TO HER FEET!! I’M NOT SURE HOW TYLER IS CONSCIOUS LET ALONE ABLE TO MOVE, BUT HERE WE ARE!! TYLER IS UP IN ONE CORNER, KENDRA IS UP IN THE OTHER CORNER… THEY LOCK EYES WITH EACH OTHER AND SPRINT INTO THE CENTER OF THE RING!! KENDRA GOING FOR A JUMPING KNEE… TYLER WOLFE GOING FOR A JUMPING KNEE… BOTH WOMEN THINKING THE SAME THING AND THEY COLLIDE IN MID-AIR!!

Gavin Kirkland: KENDRA GETS TYLER IN THE FACE, BUT HAVING THE HEIGHT ADVANTAGE, TYLER WAS ONLY ABLE TO GET KENDRA IN HER CHEST SO KENDRA REMAINS ON HER FEET… AND SHE’S GOING TO TAKE ADVANTAGE NOW… SHE GRABS THE LEGS OF OF TYLER, SPINS AROUND… AND DROPS RIGHT INTO THE SHAMELESS GRACE!! THE SHAMELESS GRACE IS LOCKED IN ON TYLER WOLFE!! HAHA HOW DOES IT FEEL TYLER?! TYLER IS FRANTIC HERE, TRYING TO FIND SOME WAY TO BREAK THE HOLD, SHE TRIES TURNING OVER TO REVERSE THE PRESSURE… BUT KENDRA ISN’T LETTING IT HAPPEN!! KENDRA HAS THIS LOCKED IN PERFECTLY!!

CJ Hana: AND AS WE MENTIONED BEFORE, NO ROPE BREAKS… NOTHING CAN BREAK THIS SUBMISSION FOR YOU, YOU HAVE TO FIND A WAY TO DO IT YOURSELF!! TYLER TRIES PUNCHING AT THE LEGS OF KENDRA BUT THAT’S NOT GOING TO DO IT… I’D BE SURPRISED IF KENDRA CAN EVEN FEEL THOSE WITH THE WAY SHE HAS HER LEGS FLEXED!! ANY OTHER BODY PART IS SIMPLY TOO FAR AWAY FOR TYLER TO REACH!! TYLER IS GOING TO HAVE TO TAP OUT, THERE’S NO OTHER WAY TO ESCAPE THIS!! KENDRA, IN HER BRIDGE… TRYING TO GET AS MUCH ELEVATION ON THIS AS POSSIBLE, TO PUT MORE PRESSURE ON TYLER’S LEGS!!

Gavin Kirkland: TAP! TAP! TAP! TAP! TAP! WHAT’S SHE DOING?! SHE’S PUSHING HERSELF BACK, PULLING HERSELF AND KENDRA TOWARDS THE ROPES…. DOESN’T SHE KNOW THE ROPES WON’T HELP HER?!

CJ Hana: MAYBE NOT IN THE TRADITIONAL SENSE, BUT SHE MIGHT BE ABLE TO FIND SOME USE WITH THOSE ROPES!! BUT WAIT… SHE ISN’T GOING TOWARDS THE ROPES, SHE’S GOING TOWARDS THE STEEL CHAIR!! TYLER IS GOING TO USE THE STEEL CHAIR TO GET OUT OF THIS!! SHE HAS IT IN HER HANDS… SHE BRINGS IT DOWN ACROSS THE LEGS OF KENDRA BUT HER OWN LEGS AS WELL!! THIS IS WHAT SHE HAS TO DO!! SHE DOES IT A SECOND TIME, A THIRD, FOURTH, FIFTH… AND FINALLY SHE GETS KENDRA TO BREAK THE SUBMISSION… TYLER WOLFE, WITH THE HELP OF THAT STEEL CHAIR HAS FREED HERSELF FROM THE SHAMELESS GRACE, BUT AT WHAT COST?!

Gavin Kirkland: Both Kendra and Tyler are down in the center of the ring, unbelievably Tyler is the first to stir! But no doubt that submission did damage to her legs, not to mention the chair shots! Kendra seems to be a bit quicker though in making it to her feet, both worse for the wear however and I wouldn’t say they’re getting to their feet so much as they’re hobbling to their feet… they both meet again in the middle of the ring… WHERE TYLER WOLFE THROWS A WICKED FOREARM AT KENDRA!! KENDRA DROPS FORWARD… RIGHT INTO THE CLUTCHES OF TYLER!!

CJ Hana: SHE’S CALLING FOR IT!! BINGO HALL MASSACRE!!… BUT NO!! KENDRA IS ABLE TO SLIP OUT OF IT AND SHE DELIVERS A KICK RIGHT TO… WELL YOU KNOW WHERE!! THE WIND IS MOMENTARILY KNOCKED OUT OF TYLER… SHE FALLS BACK INTO THE ROPES AND COMES REBOUNDING… THE BITCH TREATMENT!! NO!! TYLER WOLFE FALLS BACKWARDS WITH KENDRA, SHE GRABS THE CHAIN AGAIN, WRAPS IT AROUND HER HANDS… AND NOW THE NECK OF KENDRA, CHOKING HER OUT AGAIN!! AND THERE’S NO WAY KENDRA CAN WITHSTAND THIS A SECOND TIME, NO WAY SHE CAN GO THROUGH IT AGAIN!! SHE’S PANICKING, REACHING OUT HER ARMS AND LEGS FOR SOMETHING, ANYTHING… BUT THERE’S NOTHING IN SIGHT… TYLER IS SEETHING… THIS SCENE ALMOST LOOKING LIKE THE BEGINNING TO NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN!!

Gavin Kirkland: I’m not gonna look…

CJ Hana: KENDRA HAS NO CHOICE, SHE TAPS OUT!! SHE TAPS, IT’S OVER!! SHE HAD TO!!

(DING! DING! DING!)

(The sound of the bell causes Tyler to release all of her anger and rage and replace it with what seems to be relief. She takes a visible deep breath as she releases the chain and Kendra and pushes her to the side. “I Smell A Massacre” begins to play as she gets to her feet, taking everything around her in)

Maria Del Rey: Here is your winner… TYLLLLLERRRRRRRR WOLLLFEEEEEEE!!

CJ Hana: RETRIBUTION FOR TYLER WOLFE!! SHE HAS DONE IT, SHE HAS DEFEATED KENDRA SHAMEZ… AND WOW… WHAT A BRUTAL MATCH THAT WAS!!

(Gavin Kirkland has nothing to follow up, the camera shows him with his face buried in his hands before going back to Tyler Wolfe who is celebrating her victory in the middle of the ring.)

(The camera transitions to the commentary desk where CJ and Gavin are both clearly still in amazement for the matchup they just witnessed.)

Gavin Kirkland: Well, CJ. I guess that’s all she wrote. (He stretches his legs out and throws them over the commentary desk, folding his arms behind his head.) Finally, no more Empire…wait a minute, I’m actually kind of sad to hear that. :lupe:

CJ Hana: I guess it is, Gavin. (She sighs.) You know, I didn’t realize I’d be *this* broken up by not getting to work with this closely you anymore…it’s been such a wild ride.

Gavin Kirkland: :mjcry: Is this really the end of the road, CJ? Am I ever going to commentate another match, ever again? FUCK. I’m out of a job, aren’t I?! How will I pay for the wedding ring I have yet to buy for Cleoptra?! :noah:

CJ Hana: Gavin, I can’t believe that I’m actually saying this, but…(she sighs heavily.) Not only have you become a huge pain in my ass whose presence I’ve definitely become accustomed to somehow without wanting to shoot myself in the head every night…you’ve become someone I can consider a friend.

Gavin Kirkland: :kellycry: :kellycry: :kellycry:

CJ Hana: And just know that whatever the future has in store for either of us—I know you have a bright future. It’s been a real pleasure working with you, Gavin.

(Gavin, overcome with emotion, suddenly stands up from his seat and pulls CJ Hana up by her hands. Immobilized by the idea of Gavin putting his hands on her, she stands there absolutely stunned and frozen as Gavin pulls her into his chest and squeezes her as tightly as he possibly can.)

(She stands perfectly still at first, but eventually succumbs to Gavin’s hug, throwing her arms over his shoulders as he sobs, the crowd in the stadium cheering as they bare witness to the intimate moment between the unlikely comrades who put so much of their energy into Empire commentary.)

(Gavin finally pulls away, tears streaming down his cheeks. He has left a visible damp mark on the shoulder of CJ’s dress.)

Gavin Kirkland: :sob: Not the wet spot I’m used to leaving on a woman, but I’m okay with that, CJ, you know why?! Because I—I respect you, dammit! By far the *only* woman who I can look at, not be attracted to, yet I hold no anger towards you, nor do I want to treat you badly because of it! It’s a strange feeling, really! I’m not used to it! What do you call this energy?! I care about your well being, I enjoy being around you, and I don’t expect *anything* from you in return—especially not sexually, that’s the *least* of my concern when I look at you, my dick doesn’t even get extremely hard when I glance at your tits or get a whiff of your pheromones, no matter how hard I try, I just *don’t* want to dominate you sexually like I do other women—and god only knows it’s not because you’re ugly, but—

(CJ places a hand on Gavin’s shoulder, putting an end to his rambling.)

CJ Hana: You’re describing a healthy, platonic relationship with a member of the opposite sex, Gavin.

Gavin Kirkland: :oh: Huh. What a concept.

(They take their seats and turn their attention back to the camera.)

CJ Hana: It was an honor to call our share of Pain for Pride for all of you! Goodbye for now, I’m CJ Hana—

Gavin Kirkland: (He wipes his tears with his sleeve.) And I’m Gavin Kirkland, the voice of Empire! Now and forever! Take care, everyone, and enjoy the rest of the show!

(The camera cuts to one final shot of Tyler Wolfe who has since reached the top of the ramp, staring out into the crowd while “I Smell A Massacre” continues to play. She basks in the glory of the moment, her sense of pride reading plainly on her face as the woman to seal the deal on Empire, putting on the last brand-exclusive match—and she did it by putting an end to the General Manager’s terrorous hold over her career.)

(She turns her back to the camera, holding her arms up and posing with a little “rock on” symbol. The camera cuts to the outside of the stadium, where Empire-purple fireworks have started going off in the air. The crowd is still heard cheering as the camera transitions elsewhere.)

(Commercial airs for the latest episode of “Bodega Bhronicles” live on the EAW Network. In this episode Chris Elite and Big Mike find themselves scurrying through the streets of Atlanta in hopes of finding a deli that sells chopped cheese sandwiches and bacon, egg and cheeses. Find out what happens when two Brooklynites roam through Atlanta at the height of Pride Month!)

(Pain for Pride comes back on air as we see a distraught Gavin Kirkland couped up in the corner backstage bawling his eyes out with a bottle of henny in his hand and several cups with a purple substance inside of it surrounding him.)

Gavin Kirkland: FUCK! FUCK! FUCK! FUCK! FUCK!

(Suddenly, the ruckus gets the attention of the people surrounding him, one of those people just so happen to be the Vice President of EAW, HRDO. He stops what he’s doing to approach Gavin.)

HRDO: Hey man, what are you doing over here? You look all messed up and out of it. What the hell is going on? And what’s in that cup? Where’d you get all of this stuff from, I don’t think we serve that at catering.

Gavin Kirkland: I ain’t no snitch.

HRDO: Ahhh, you got it from Chris Elite.

Gavin Kirkland: :noah: Fine. I got the henny from Chris, Big Mike and their posse. Chris isn’t doing so well himself after losing to MJ so he’s in a mood himself and said he was gonna “live up to the name SK” but I told him “look on the bright side, at least you still got a job to return to” and he was like “shit you right b at least I ain’t gonna be living on the streets like you”. So he handed me this bottle and told me this will make all of my sorrows go away, so here I am.

HRDO: And the cup.. it’s grape soda right? I saw Deadprez walking around earlier in the pre-show with something similar.

Gavin Kirkland: Oh that’s just a little bit of numb numb juice. :mjlit: I don’t know where Deadprez got his but I got mine straight from Kassidy Heart’s locker room. I had this weekly routine where I’d go to her locker just to be able to be in the presence of her amazing aura, she’s no cleo but dammit she’s close enough! So I figured why not do it again this one last time for the road since I won’t be seeing her weekly anymore, and I ran into a bottle of codeine. I think she had a sore throat or something. I don’t know what she was doing with her throat but I could only imagine :whew:. So I figured why not experiment with the sprite can from that vending machine over there and take the edge off?

HRDO: You’re really sitting here telling the VP of the company you work for, that you made a routine out of invading a female employee’s locker to do lord knows what with her belongings.

Gavin Kirkland: Well it’s not like you can fire me I’m already jobless as of the conclusion of Tyler versus Kendra. I hate myself right now. I hate that I have to be in this position, what do I look like collecting food stamps and welfare checks, Serena Bennett?

HRDO: You really are out of it…

Gavin Kirkland: I sure am, out of a job that is! Besides, this has been a horrible experience so what better way to cope with it by getting fucked up? I thought calling the matches for Pain for Pride would be a dream come true but instead it turned out to be a nightmare of epic proportions. First that freak Amber Keys ends the career of my precious Cleo! Then the beautiful blonde Sienna Jade damn near retires! Then we get blonde on blonde crime with Tyler vs Kendra! And to top it all off I can’t find a job anywhere. I been applying EVERYWHERE. I figured I’d check out one of those EAW graveyards but then I realized their women’s divisions are filled with cockeyed wildebeests now how am I supposed to get off to that? :mjcry:

HRDO: I see.

Gavin Kirkland: No, you don’t see, Oliver! You don’t understand the ramifications of this whole experience. I thought Colin Kaline and Moonlight Predator fighting for world titles was bad! But that’s nothing compared to what I’ve witnessed tonight! This has been the worst Pain for Pride your company has EVER held and that’s saying a lot considering one PFP had RoViper in the main event.

HRDO: Now c’mon we aren’t THAT bad. Look man, I don’t know what I can do to help you enjoy the experience more but I can at least help you stay on your feet and continue to pay your bills.

(Gavin was about to put the henny bottle to his face but abruptly puts it down after hearing what HRDO said)

Gavin Kirkland: Wait what are you implying?

HRDO: Well you’re quite the personality and we can surely use you on one of our weekly programming if you’re willing to stay around.

Gavin Kirkland: Well my backpage thots aren’t going to pay themsel– I mean, my bills aren’t going to pay themselves! Of course I’m willing!

HRDO: Wait backpage is still around? :gladbron: I mean uhh– forget I asked. I’ll send you an email soon with the information regarding what brand you’ll end up on.

Gavin Kirkland: Thank you so much sir! I always did like you better than Banks and DEDEDE! Just one more thing, I’m not trying to be calling any sausage fests so put me on the brand with the most bitches, preferably blondes.

HRDO: No promises, but I’ll see what I can do. Now go fix yourself up man you look a mess. And throw those substances away before you fail a drug test and can’t get the job.

(HRDO nods at Gavin and walks away as Gavin is motioning as if he’s about to put the henny and lean in the trash, but as HRDO keeps walking further away and doesn’t look back, Gavin decides not to and keeps sipping without a care in the world.)

Gavin Kirkland: Coming from the guys who employed Jack Haze. :skip:

(Camera fades elsewhere)

(The Camera opens to see the raucous crowd going absolutely insane as Deadprez and Eve are at the commentary desk and Gina Romano is in the ring.)

Eve: Time for the blue brand to take control!

Deadprez: That’s right! And it’s time for one of the most anticipated matches on the card!

Gina Romano: The following contest is set for one fall and is for the EAW Interwire Championship! Introducing first…

(‘Natural’ by Imagine Dragons plays as Terry Chambers makes his way out onto the ramp. The capacity crowd seems very behind Terry as he takes a moment to seemingly soak it all in.)

Eve: Here comes the man who may be the biggest threat that Drake King has ever faced, Terry Chambers has overcome a near career ending injury with a ferocity that no one, especially Drake King, could have anticipated!

Deadprez: For sure, this man is almost a force of nature in his drive and dedication, and we could very well be looking at the new Interwire champion if Drake isn’t on top of his game!

(Terry enters the ring and moves to his corner awaiting his opponent.)

Gina Romano: From Detroit Michigan, weighing in at 287 pounds, he is The Barbaric Carnivore…Terry Chambers!

(Terry raises his arm, raising the cheers of the crowd.)

Gina Romano: Introducing his opponent…

BEHOLD THE KING…THE KING OF KINGS!

(‘King of Kings’ by Motorhead begins playing as the Interwire champion makes his way onto the ramp, the title belt around his waist. A freshly dyed streak of blonde hair stands starkly against his otherwise dark hair. Showered in the boos of the crowd, Drake makes his way to the ring at a methodical pace.)

Deadprez: Here is the man,, Drake King! He has dominated the competition since winning the Interwire title earlier this year, he will certainly not be a pushover for Terry, and, in my opinion, has a really good chance of walking out of Pain for Pride with the Interwire title!

Eve: That well may be, but much of that dominance was due to the Roundtable who are banned here tonight, so Drake will be an island to himself tonight!

(Drake enters the ring and takes off the title, Gina, the official, and Terry quickly move back out of the way as King begins swinging the title wildly in the ring. Once he stops Gina walks back to the center of the ring.)

Gina Romano: Introducing, from Brooklyn, New York, and weighing in at 220 pounds, he is the reigning…defending…undisputed EAW Interwire champion…The King…Drake King!

(The official takes the title from Drake before presenting it to Terry who pats the title without taking his eyes off his opponent.)

Deadprez: Such a big fight feel here with this match, these two seem ready to tear each other’s throats out!

(As Gina exits the ring, the official hands the title off to the time keeper and checks that both men are ready before calling for the bell.)

(DING DING DING!)

Eve: It’s on! Chambers versus King, Interwire title on the line, and neither man is taking that lightly as they rush forward! Chambers tries to open early with a rushing clothesline, but Drake ducks and lands a hard hook to the midsection, stunning him. Drake catches a headlock, but Terry elbows his way out of it, and runs to the ropes, hoping to catch King off guard…It pays off as Chambers lands a big shoulder tackle, knocking the Interwire champion flat on his back, and Terry, not wanting to waste any time, runs to the ropes again, this time looking for a senton…Drake moves! Tery drops to the mat with a crash as Drake scrambled out of the way, but there isn’t any time to recover, King hits the ropes himself and lands a seated dropkick to the face!

Deadprez: Terry tries to shake the dropkick off and is back to his feet, but Drake, having gained some confidence, moves forward, locking in a collar and elbow tie up that pushes Chambers back toward the turnbuckle…Terry reverses the position though, and locks in a headlock of his own! Drake’s arms are flailing wildly as he tries to escape and manages to make it to the ropes, causing the official to call for the break. Terry lands a quick jab to the jaw of King, then another! Terry surgically precise with the strikes that rock the Interwire champion…WAIT! Drake counters a jab with a leaping kick to the head! Terry stumbles back, giving Drake some breathing room which he uses to rush forward, landing a headscissors takedown! Terry isn’t on the mat long, though, he’s already moving back to his feet, but Drake drops clubbing blows to the head and shoulders of Chambers, who is weathering the blows without slowing down.

Eve: Terry lands a big forearm to the side of Drake’s head, but Drake doesn’t slow down either and fires back with a forearm of his own! DRAKE! TERRY! DRAKE! TERRY! Both men grab their opponent by the nape of the neck and are trying to obliterate the other’s face! These two are geared up for a war! Knee strike from Terry ends the cycle, though, and doubles Drake over. Terry hooks the tights and lands a snap suplex, further driving the breath from King. Terry follows this up with an elbow dropped across the sternum of Drake, further driving the breath out of Drake’s lungs. Chambers, back to his feet, drives the heel of his foot into King with a series of vicious stomps that are coming down with such force it’s all Drake can do to cover up! It’s still early in the match, but if Terry manages to gain early momentum it’s going to be very difficult for Drake to turn the tide later on!

Deadprez: He musta heard you, Eve, Drake grabs Terry’s foot and twists! Chambers is sent to the mat as Drake rolls to his feet, taking a brief moment to regain his wits. Drake quickly dodges an attempt by Terry to catch what could have been a headlock or maybe even a sleeper, and drives his foot into the back of Terry’s knee, sending the bigger man stumbling forward! That’s a smart move, Terry has about thirty or so pounds on Drake but if Drake can take away that vertical base then it won’t matter much. Drake seizes the opportunity and drives another kick to Terry’s knee and this time the challenger drops to one knee! Maybe looking to add some momentum to a strike, Drake hits the ropes…NO! Terry counters with a scoop slam! Drake was absolutely caught off guard with that! Terry hooks the leg, could be a new champ!

Referee: ONE! TW-

Deadprez: Too early! Drake kicks out! It was too soon for a pin to be realistically possible, but it was always worth the shot, and now Terry has drawn the proverbial first blood in this match! Terry pulls Drake to his feet irish whip…Drake reverses it! Terry off the ropes…BIG SHOULDER TACKLE! Drake is sent flying to the mat and is carried out of the ring with his momentum! As King stumbles over to the barricade Terry hits the ropes again…SUICIDE DIVE!

Eve: Terry flies, forearm first, into the Interwire champion! Drake is crushed between his opponent and the unforgiving barricade! Terry pulls Drake back to his feet…Big Belly to Belly Suplex on the outside! Drake could be in a lot of trouble here, you can see he is starting to slump a bit from the onslaught of Terry, who is doing everything he can to take the Interwire championship home. The referee is calling for both men to return to the ring, but they’re ignoring him, the official allowing a lot of leeway here by not starting his count, but this is Pain for Pride and no way are we going to let a title match end in a countout!

Deadprez: Let the boys fight!

Eve: Let them fight indeed! Terry clotheslines Drake over the barricade, spilling the Interwire champion over into the sea of people in attendance here tonight! Terry is following closely behind, along with the official a few feet back who is still admonishing the two and demanding they return to the ring. Drake comes to his senses and starts heading up the stairs, his eyes wide with fear at the advancing Barbaric Carnivore. He fires off a quick kick, hoping to slow his opponent down, and catches Terry in the solar plexus region! Drake ascends a few of the steps then turns and leaps, catching Terry in the temple with a knee! Terry staggers back against the railing as Drake makes an attempt to slip past and return the action to the ring, but Chambers catches King at the last moment and slams him back against the stair railing, causing Drake to drop to his knees in pain. Again, we need to stress, this is not a no holds barred match, the referee has just been allowing a generous amount of leeway here in order to bring to the EAW Universe a definitive end to this match, but now he’s seeming to put his foot down and demands that Terry and Drake return the action to the ring.

Deadprez: Terry seems to concede and grabs Drake by his hair and sends him flying over the ring barricade and onto the arena floor at ringside. As the official scrambles over the barrier, Terry climbs up onto the obstruction, an evil gleam in his eye…OHMIGOD! TERRY CHAMBERS HIT A SENTON OFF THE BARRCADE! Drake is flattened under the attack, caught between Terry and the arena floor, Drake is in real trouble here! Terry rolls him into the ring and slides after, quickly going for the pin!

Referee: ONE! TWO! THRE-

Deadprez: KICKOUT! Drake managed to kickout from the pin! He’s not done, but he’s far from being in a safe place as Terry looks to continue the assault! Drake is backing away toward the corner, begging off, but I don’t think that’s going to help, Terry smells blood in the water and like a shark, he’s moving in for the kill!

Eve: Drake is backing away as Terry approaches…Terry rushes forward, but Drake, thinking quickly, grabs the waist of his tights and pulls him forward, driving Chambers into the turnbuckle. Drake has yet again proven himself a survivor in this match, but he needs to go on the offensive if he’s hoping to defend his title! Drake makes it to his feet and rushes forward, catching Terry with yet another knee strike, this time directly to the face of Chambers, busting his nose, sending blood splattering all over Terry’s face and the ring mat! Drake pulls Terry out of the corner, but Chambers swings wildly, hoping to catch King. Drake ducks, and the swing catches the ref! The referee is down!

Deadprez: This is the kinda thing that can change a match!

Eve: Absolutely right! Drake sees the referee go down and moves quickly, kicking Terry right between the legs! Chambers drops to the mat in agony! Drake is smiling now as he has to feel that he now has the match in the bag!

Deadprez: Terry is struggling to his knees as Drake seems to be measuring him up…SUPERKICK! NO! Terry caught the kick and twists, sending Drake to the mat! Terry, still moving gingerly, makes his way over to the referee, he has to have a conscious official if he wants to win the Interwire title, but Drake cuts him off with a running elbow shot! Terry is stopped dead in his tracks, but remains standing as Drake takes him by the wrist for an irish whip…NO! TERY COUNTERED THE WHIP! LOCKED IN THE CHAMBERS! TERRY HAS THE COQUINA CLUTCH LOCKED IN! Drake is frantic as he tries to escape, but Drake has the hold in deep, and the Interwire champion is starting to fade! Drake is out! King has gone limp, but there is no referee! With a roar of rage, Terry drops Drake’s limp body to the mat and again goes over to try to revive the referee. I think I would have held the submission until the ref woke up, myself, but either way the official is starting to rouse now. Chambers, satisfied that he has the match in the bag, moves over to King to finish off the champion! Chambers goes for the pin, this could be it!

Referee: ONE!…TWO!…THREE!

Eve: ROPEBREAK! Drake just managed to get his foot on the rope before three! Terry is furious, and I think he has a right to be! He had this match won if the official had been awake! Drake is still in this, though, and Terry needs to follow up, he’s still very much in the driver’s seat of the match. Terry starts stalking Drake again, looking to end things for once and for all, but Drake has enough wits left about him to roll out of the ring! Blood stained, and frustrated, Terry goes to follow through the ropes, but Drake catches him with a forearm to the face, sending fresh gouts of blood from the nose of Chambers, who falls forward through the ropes and crashed to the mat! As Terry tries to regain his footing Drake catches him in the face with a superkick! Terry collapses back to the mat as Drake rolls in briefly to stop the official’s count. King may finally be in command of the match!

Deadprez: Drake mounts Terry and starts raining fists down on Chambers with newfound fire! Drake knows that his title is at state here tonight and isn’t about to let it slip away, especially after having come very close already once here tonight. As the referee admonishes Drake, he drops the mount and again rolls into and back out of the ring to break the count. Terry is slowly making his way to his feet, now on all fours, as Drake lands a punt like kick to his midsection, causing the challenger to drop back to the mat in pain. Drake pulls Terry back to his feet and drapes Terry’s right arm over his neck while hooking the waistband of the tights…DRAKE LANDS A SUPLEX INTO THE BARRICADE! Terry lands in a heap! Drake stands and is almost shaking with the resurgence he’s feeling in these last few moments! Taking Chambers by the back of the head, he rolls him into the ring and quickly climbs to the top turnbuckle…he’s looking for that Phoenix Splash here, going to end the match if he can! Drake goes airborne…HE LANDS THE PHOENIX SPLASH! King hooks the leg, we could have a successful defense!

Referee: ONE!…TWO!…

Eve: Kickout from Chambers, he’s not done yet, but Drake has done a lot to make up ground since the opening moments of the match, and you have to think that the longer the match goes now the more it swings in the favor of Drake, Terry is bleeding out from both nostrils to the point that Drake has is covering his chest and arms. Drake slaps the mat in frustration, but can’t lose his focus here. He backs off to the corner, stalking Terry as he tries to stand, and looks to be going for Kneel to the King, the curbstomp, which would most likely be the beginning of the end for Terry here tonight…he rushes forward…NO! Terry moves and Drake stomps the mat hard, that would have likely ended Terry, but Chambers still has his wits about him and is still in the match! Drake, now visibly frustrated, pulls Terry to his feet…quick jab from Chambers, stunning King, then another…and another! Terry can taste the Interwire title, it’s within his grasp, he just needs to bring it home, and he’s doing everything he can to do just that!

Deadprez: Terry, head of steam, runs to the ropes…big single leg dropkick floors King, but Terry moves quickly, and pulls Drake into position…BUCKLE BOMB! Drake is out! Terry collapses to one knee, though, it looks like the blood loss may have finally caught up with him, it’s a tough break though, he may have had the match won there! Terry tries to recover as Drake begins to stir, which will regain their feet first?!

Eve: It looks like Terry, he stalks forward, shaking off the previous lightheadedness, and reaches out to Drake…KING WITH A REVERSE RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP TO THE MIDDLE TURNBUCKLE! Tery was duped! King gingerly makes his way to the top once again, could be going to the well too many times here…DRAKE WITH ANOTHER PHOENIX SPLASH! He hooks the leg!

Referee: ONE! TWO! THREE!

Deadprez: KING WINS!

Eve: No! Terry got his shoulder up at the last possible moment! Drake can’t believe it, and frankly neither can I! Terry Chambers has endured so much to get to this point, Drake is going to have to basically kill him to keep his title safe, but what will it take to do that?! Blood is pooling under Terry as Drake motions that he’s ready to end this once and for all…he pulls Terry to a standing position…HE’S GOING FOR HARSH PUNISHMENT, IF DRAKE HITS THIS IT’S ALL OVER! CHAMBERS COUNTERS WITH AN ELBOW TO THE HEAD! He managed to escape Drake’s most potent move that would have ended this match without a doubt. Terry slides off Drakes shoulders…LOCKED IN THE CHAMBERS! DRAKE IS IN TROUBLE HERE!

(‘Resistance’ by Skillet begins to play as Drake starts to fade from the submission. The crowd boos as both the official, and Terry, who releases the clutch, looks toward the entrance way.)

Eve: THEY CAN’T BE HERE! THE ROUNDTABLE IS BANNED FROM RINGSIDE, THIS WILL JUST CAUSE DRAKE TO LOSE HIS TITLE!

Deadprez: LOOKOUT! IT WAS A RUSE! Drake used the momentary distraction to land another lowblow on Terry that the ref didn’t see because they were distracted with the entrance way! TERRY IS IN TROUBLE! DRAKE HOOKS HIS ARMS! MILLER LIGHT! The Pedigree floors Terry! Terry is out as Drake makes the pin!

Referee: ONE! TWO! THREE!

Deadprez: NO! Terry again manages to kick out! Drake King is beside himself, Terry by all rights should be out, but somehow he managed to kick out yet again! King is fuming now, and has had enough! He pulls Terry to his feet, and into position for another Miller Light, this will end things for sure! NO! Terry drops to his knees, more out of exhaustion I think that an actual tactic, but it nonetheless served to free him from Drake’s Miller Light. Chambers is on dream street right now, but is still in the fight somehow, regardless of which way this match goes, Drake King will never forget this match, Terry has taken everything that the champion has thrown at him here tonight at Pain for Pride! Drake goes to pull Terry to his feet, but Chambers rushes forward, driving King to the turnbuckle! Terry gains his third of fourth second wind and starts unloading again with quick jabs to the face and head of Drake! King is stunned by the tenacity of Chambers here tonight and is eating a ton of shots to the face!

Eve: Terry seems almost in a berserker like rage as he unleashes an assault on the Interwire champion! Dake is starting to slump a bit as Terry pulls him out of the corner and down into a powerbomb position…TURNBUCKLE BOMB! Drake is slumped in the corner, exhausted from this absolute war that he has been in here tonight! Terry takes Drake by the wrist and pulls him to his feet and into a forearm shot with the momentum! King is only standing at this point because Terry is holding him, and Terry is standing because…fuck all if I know! These two men have given it their all for the Interwire title! Terry pulls Drake forward again for yet another forearm shot! The Interwire champion is out on his feet, but he’s been in this position before! Terry needs to make absolutely sure, and seems to be intending to do just that as he pulls Drake forward again, but this time ducks slightly to pop King to his shoulders and delivers a brutal Samoan drop! With a burst of speed, Terry hits the ropes again and delivers yet another senton!

Deadprez: Terry, somehow, seems to yet again have the Interwire title within his grasp. He pulls Drake to his feet and slips behind him…LOCKED IN THE CHAMBERS! Terry has it locked in for the third time! Drake is struggling less this time, it may be all academic now…NO! DRAKE RUSHES FORWARD, DRAGGING CHAMBERS BEHIND, AND RUNS UP THE TURNBUCKLE! Drake flips over Terry’s head and, due to Terry’s position with the Clutch locked in, pins him! The Referee moves into position quickly!

Referee: ONE! TWO! THREE-

Deadprez: Kickout! Terry released the hold! Drake with the hail mary there almost pulled out the win! Both men are now on the mat doing everything they can to catch their breath, but neither can make any real capitalization due to the punishment their bodies have gone through! Drake is staring, empty eyed, at the arena lights, and Terry has managed to rise to a sitting position, breathing heavily, and wipes blood away from his nose and mouth area. Drake is now starting to stir as Terry slowly regains his feet. Chambers walks slowly over to Drake and pulls him again to his feet, still holding the wrist, and delivers an open hand slap to the Interwire champion!

Eve: Drake slumps back, but Terry has the wrist, keeping him from falling, and slaps Drake again! This seems to wake him up, though, and King fires back with a forearm shot! He can barely stand, but he refuses to release his grip on his Interwire belt! Terry snarls and delivers a forearm, which Drake answers right back. Terry…Drake…Terry…Drake…Terry pulls Drake forward suddenly, onto his shoulders, could be looking for another Samoan drop here…NO! T5! Terry Chambers delivers the T5! Drake is unconscious! Terry makes the pin!

Referee: One! Two! Three!

(DING DING DING!)

Deadprez: Terry did it! He’s the new Interwire champion!

Gina Romano: Ladies and gentlemen, here is your winner by pinfall…ANNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNDDDDDDD NEW EAW INTERWIRE CHAMPION… THE BARBARIC CARNIVORE… TTTTTTTEEEEEERRRRRRRRRRRRYYYYYYYYYYYYY CCCCCCCHHHHHHAAAAAAAMMMMMMMBBBBBBEEEEEERRRRRRRSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!

(‘Natural’ by Imagine Dragons plays as the official hands the Interwire championship to Terry. Drake is laying motionless in the ring in the aftermath of the match.)

Eve: What an amazing fight here by Terry Chambers! And finally! A four year journey has led him to championship gold here at the biggest show possible! Congratulations to Terry! The reign of terror from Drake King over the Interwire Championship is over!

(Terry is still on his knees, staring at the title almost as if he doesn’t believe it’s real.)

Deadprez: Take nothing away from Drake King. But Terry Chambers came ready for a war and that’s what we got! And now we leave tonight with a brand new Interwire Champion!

(Terry finally puts his head down, pressing his forehead into the championship before standing to his feet and raising the belt high for the EAW Universe to see. The crowd is going absolutely wild for Terry as the camera fades to break.)

(Commercial for the EAW Season 13 Draft Show, LIVE next Sunday on the EAW Network.)

(The camera reopens to the roaring fans throughout the stadium.)

View post on imgur.com

(The Camera pans around the arena as until we see Deadprez and Eve still at the commentary desk.)

Eve: Hello everyone and we are going to stick with Showdown here for the moment as we are set for what promises to be one of the most violent and brutal matches on the card!

Deadprez: Ahren Fournier and Kassidy Heart joined forces in late 2018 to form what became known as Magnum Opus. Kassidy worked to make sure Ahren reaches the top of the industry as she felt he was being ignored much as she felt she was ignored on Empire!

Eve: But things grow sour over time as Ahren took her for granted and Kassidy accidentally cost Ahren the EAW Championship. It wasn’t long after that when we found these two taking some of the most personal shots I’ve ever seen at one another from home Invasion to desecrating the grave of a loved one.

Deadprez: But tonight it all comes to a head as the newly crowned Universal Womens Champion takes on the man known as the GOAT! Ladies and gentlemen… it’s a deathmatch!

(The lights go out around the venue as the sound of hooves can be heard clicking across the sea of fans. Bells begin to ring and the screen shows stars twinkling. The voice of Morgan Freeman then cuts through the air like a warm knife through butter.)

Morgan Freeman: Tales old as time teach us about noble people who find their way to shine even when others try to keep them from doing so. From tales of beauties and beasts, to charming princes and maleficent beings… one tale such as these is unfolding before our very eyes tonight…

(A goat drawn carriage shaped like a pumpkin marches its way out to the stage.)

Morgan Freeman: A man of great beauty and promise. One who was cast aside and belittled by his evil step-elitists. He was misused and taken advantage of by those who sought to abuse his talents.

(Out of the carriage steps Ahren Fournier wearing a suit made of powder blue fine fabric and adorned with glittery blue lace. In his arms is his cat Jennipurr, dressed with fairy wings.)

Morgan Freeman: This young Prince was betrayed by the Queen of Hearts, a vile woman who brought nothing but plague upon those around her. But this valiant noble would fight back. And with the aid of his fairy god mother, Cinderfella would have his revenge. It would break his heart to do this to someone he once cared so deeply for. But he knew to be a great man, you must be willing to go to great lengths!

(Ahren places Jennipurr carefully back into the carriage as it is guided out of the stage. Ahren stands solemn as he looks at the ring.)

Morgan Freeman: Ladies and Gentlemen, EAW Proudly presents, the final chapter of the hard-hitting saga… CINDERFELLA!!

(“Bury a Friend” by Billie Eilish hits the speakers as Ahren now makes his way down to the ring, ignoring the boos from the crowd. Ahren makes his way up and into the ring, posing with his arms out as if he expects cheers, angered to hear boos.)

(Ahren now begins to remove his powder blue suit to reveal his ring gear underneath. He undressed with his eyes fixed on the screen, waiting for Kassidy Heart to make her entrance.)

(Several moments pass and “Put Em Up” by Lupe Fiasco finally hits. Ahren tosses the last of his suit out to the outside as he stands and watches. But suddenly the music just cuts out.)

Deadprez: LOOK OUT!

(Kassidy Heart runs out from the audience wearing ripped jeans and a custom REVOLT! Pro Combat t-shirt with converse sneakers. She has her hair in a ponytail and tape around her wrists and fists. She hops the barricade before sliding into the ring and hitting Ahren in the back of the head with her EAW Universal Women’s Championship belt.)

Eve: KASSIDY HEART JUST BLASTED AHREN FROM BEHIND WITH THE NEW UNIVERSAL WOMENS CHAMPIONSHIP BELT!

Kassidy Heart (off-mic): WHO’S THE GOAT CHAMP NOW, BIH?

(DING! DING! DING!)

Eve: AND I GUESS WE ARE SKIPPING INTRODUCTIONS AS THINGS ARE UNDERWAY NOW AS AHREN FOURNIER IS ROLLING OUT OF THE RING TO TRY AND CREATE SOME SEPARATION! AHREN LOOKS A BIT KNOCKED BACK BUT THE BRAND NEW UNIVERSAL WOMENS CHAMPION IS LOOKING FOR SOEM REVENGE AFTER THE RECENT ACTIONS OF AHREN FOURNIER!

Deadprez: Anybody gonna point out to me why Kassidy is wearing jeans and shit? Are you telling me Ahren is actually respecting the ring more than her tonight? That just sounds stupid.

Eve: The argument can be made, DP. But Kassidy was specific when she called this a deathmatch. She knows this concept well and the denim and other clothes provide more protection than ring gear that keeps skin exposed. Kassidy is playing to her experience here.

Deadprez: Yeah I can see how that would help. I wonder how— SUICIDE DIVE FROM HEART TO THE OUTSIDE! KASSIDY KNOCKS AHREN BACK INTO THE BARRICADE! The referee finally depositing Kassidy’s championship over with the timekeeper! Rules here are very simple! Anything goes! First pin or submission wins and Kassidy off to a strong start! Taking it to the former EAW Champion! Kassidy staying on the warpath as well now as she grabs Ahren by the man-bun and looks to run him into the steel post! BUT AHREN BLOCKED IT! CAUGHT HIMSELF WITH HIS HANDS ON THE RING POST! AND A BACK ELBOW RIGHT TO KASSIDY! AHREN GRABS HER AND SHOVES HER INTO THE SIDE OF THE RING! AHREN NOW DROPPING DOWN! HE JUST CRAWLED UNDERNEATH THE RING!

Eve: Where the hell did he go?

Deadprez: That’s What Kassidy would like to know as she lifts the ring skirt now trying to find the GOAT but Ahren is nowhere to be seen! Heart is walking along the ring, lifting the skirt as she goes to try and find her opponent but— WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT?!? AHREN FOURNIER JUST SPRAYED KASSIDY IN THE FACE WITH A FIRE EXTINGUISHER HE FOUND UNDERNEATH THE RING! KASSIDY IS BLINDED BY THE CHEMICAL SPRAY AS AHREN SLIDES OUT AND IMMEDIATELY RUSHES HER AND CONNECTS WITH THAT EXTINGUISHER ACROSS THE SKULL! AHREN NOW GRABS KASSIDY AND ROLLS HER BACK INTO THE RING! But Ahren isn’t going to follow? Oh no! He’s going under the ring again?!? OHHH! THE TOYS ARE COMING OUT TO PLAY!

Eve: The former Hardcore Champion looking to introduce some fun into the matchup! Deathmatch culture or not, Ahren knows how to cause pain! Look at everything he’s pulling out! He’s grabbed a kendo stick and tossed it into the ring! There’s a few steel chairs, he just tossed those aside I guess they were blocking something? What is that? It’s just a long box of some kind? Ahren sliding that over near the barricade. And now he’s got… is that an authentic Louisville slugger baseball bat? What looks like a roadside tool kit. And… oh shit… THATS AN ACTUAL ROLL OF RAZOR WIRE! Many consider barbed wire to be the most dangerous thing you can add but razor wire is the same idea except made to be literal lengths of sheer razor blades!

Deadprez: Ahren looking to take full advantage here as he now tosses that razor wire and one of the chairs into the ring! He tosses the toolbox in as well and Finally the GOAT rolls into the ring himself as Kassidy Heart seems to finally be shaking her head clear from that fire extinguisher, rubbing the remaining chemical from her eyes. Kassidy gets to her feet now— BUT AHREN RIGHT TO WORK AS HE CRACKS THAT CHAIR ACROSS THE BACK OF KASSIDYS HEAD! HEART IS DOWN AND AHREN SMASHING THE CHAIR INTO KASSIDY NOW AS SHE DROPS BACK TO THE MAT AND AHREN LAYING INTO HER! KASSIDY IS DOWN AND AHREN ROLLS HER OVER AND WILL ATTEMPT A PINFALL!

REF: ONEEEEEEEEEE!

Eve: But Kassidy Powers out! No way that was going to be enough! Ahren not wasting time worrying about that though! He grabs that razor wire roll and now he’s wrapping the strand around the chair! He pops open that toolbox and yanks out a pair of wire cutters, clipping the razor wire as he’s wrapped it around the chair now! Kassidy beginning to get back to her feet as Ahren looks to continue the assault and—

Deadprez: KASSIDY HEART SUPERKICKS THE RAZOR WRAPPED CHAIR BACK INTO THE FACE OF THE GOAT! AHREN FALLS BACK TO THE GROUND AND CLUTCHES AT HIS FACE! I SEE CUTS FROM HERE! THAT DID SOME DAMAGE! AHREN ROLLS OVER AND HIS FACE IS ALREADY BLEEDING! THOSE CUTS OPENED UP QUICK! BUT NOW KASSIDY SWINGING THAT KENDO STICK AND SMACKING IT INTO THE BODY OF FOURNIER! WOOD SPLINTERS ARE FLYING EVERYWHERE AS THAT KENDO STICK IS CRACKING WITH EVERY SHOT! THE SHEER HATRED BEHIND EVERY SINGLE SHOT! KASSIDY LETTING EVERYTHING INSIDE OF HER OUT RIGHT HERE! AHREN TRYING TO COVER UP BUT FAILING! HE NEEDS TO FIND SOME KIND OF REPRIEVE! HE—

Eve: AHREN JUST GRABBED THE RAZOR WIRE ROLL AND THREW IT AS KASSIDY’S FACE! KASSIDY DODGES BUT AHREN HAS HIS CHANCE TO RECOVER! HE ROLLS TO THE RING APRON! KASSIDY TRIES TO GRAB AHOLD OF HIM BUT AHREN HANGS HER UP ON THE ROPES! HE DROPS TO THE FLOOR AND GRABS HER BY THE FEET! DRAGGING THE UNIVERSAL WOMENS CHAMPION TO THE OUTSIDE! AHREN TAKES KASSIDY BY THE HEAD AND SMASHES HER SKULL BACK AGAINST THE RING POST! KASSIDY IS DOWN AND CLUTCHING AT HER HEAD! Ahren looks like he’s now going to set up something! He looks around and thinks… now taking the remaining two steel chairs and setting them up! Unfolding them and placing them here at the ringside area! Kassidy is still down but Ahren now grabbing that box from before! SHIT! THAT THING IS JUST FULL OF LIGHT TUBES FOR THE ARENA! THOSE ARE FRAGILE AND THAT GLASS HURTS! WHAT THE HELL IS AHREN THINKING HERE?!? AHREN LAYING THE LIGHT TUBES ACROSS THE STEEL CHAIRS! THERE MUST BE AT LEAST TWENTY OF THEM! AND NOW HES GRABBING KASSIDY! AHREN DRAGS HER OVER! HE PLACES HER HEAD BETWEEN HIS LEGS AND LIFTS HER UP FOR A POWERBOMB! AHREN GOING TO SEND KASSIDY RIGHT THROUGH ALL THAT GLASS!!

Deadprez: BUT KASSIDY COMES TO AND IS SMASHING HER FIST INTO THE BLOODY FACE OF AHREN FOURNIER! OVER AND OVER! KASSIDY TRYING TO SURVIVE RIGHT NOW! THOSE GLASS SHARDS WILL EVISCERATE HER BODY! AHREN STILL TRIES TO HIT THE MANEUVER! BUT KASSIDY THROWS HERSELF BACK INTO A HEAD-SCISSORS! SHE THROWS AHREN RIGHT AT THE LIGHT TUBES! BUT AHREN MANAGES TO CATCH HIMSELF BY GRABBING HIS HANDS ONTO ONE OF THE STEEL CHAIRS! Ahren now, breathing a sigh of relief as he just avoided a near—

Eve: KASSIDY HEART FROM BEHIND WITH AN UPPERCUT TO THE GROIN! AHREN FOURNIER WAS NOT EXPECTING THAT! Or wait… he stopped looking in pain and turns around! Ahren just reached in his tights! HE PULLS OUT A JOCKSTRAP CUP?

Ahren Fournier (off-mic): I KNEW YOU WOULD, DUMB BIH! YOU—

Deadprez: BUT KASSIDY NOW WITH A SWIFT KICK TO THE GOAT NARDS THAT ARE NO LONGER PROTECTED! AHREN DOUBLES OVER IN PAIN AND KASSIDY GRABS HIM BY THE HEAD AND PLANTS HIM WITH A DDT! Kassidy now to her feet! Ahren is down and wallowing in his pain and Kassidy will look to inflict more pain! Kassidy looking under the ring apron, doesn’t seem to see anything she likes though. She goes around to the other side… AND NOW KASSIDY HEART PULLING OUT A TABLE! KASSIDY DRAGS THE TABLE OVER NEAR THE BARRICADE ALONG WHERE AHREN IS! SHE OPENS IT UP AND SETS IT ON ITS LEGS! Kassidy now grabbing Ahren by the head and pulling him up to his knees! She pulls him, making him crawl in front of her as she drags him towards the table! NOW KASSIDY DRIVING KNEE AFTER KNEE INTO THE FACE OF THE GOAT! SHE TAKES HIM BY THE HEAD AND THE SHOULDER AND ROLLS HIM ONTO THE TABLE! Kassidy has something big in mind here! She goes now under the ring apron again! A LADDER! KASSIDY HAS FOUND ONE OF THE REMAINING LADDERS FROM CASH IN THE VAULT EARLIER TONIGHT! KASSIDY DRAGS IT OUT AND SETS UP A SOLID FIFTEEN FOOT LADDER RIGHT IN FRONT OF AHREN AS HE LAYS ON THE TABLE! KASSIDY NOW LOOKING TO CLIMB! SHE HAS SOME EVIL INTENTS IN MIND! RUNG BY RUNG SHE MAKES HER WAY UP THE LADDER! KASSIDY CLIMBING UP—

Eve: BUT AHREN IS AWAKE NOW! HE SEES KASSIDY REACHING THE TOP AND ROLLS IMMEDIATELY OFF THE TABLE! AHREN NOW MAKING HIS WAY QUICKLY UP THE LADDER! AHREN MEETS KASSIDY AT THE TOP OF THE LADDER! BOTH NOW TRADING SHOTS! AHREN! KASSIDY! AHREN! KASSIDY! AHREN! KASSIDY! AHREN! AHREN! AHREN! AHREN! KASSIDY IS SLIPPING! SHES LOSING HER GRIP ON THE LADDER! BUT NOW AHREN GRABS HER BY THE HEAD! AND HE LIFTS HER UP! THIS LOOKS LIKE A SUPERPLEX FROM THE LADDER AND THROUGH THE TABLE!

**SMASH**

Deadprez: NO! AHREN HAD KASSIDY UP FOR THE SUPLEX BUT HE DIDNT PULL HER BACK! HE TOSSED THE MUCH LIGHTER KASSIDY FORWARD FROM THERE AND SHE JUST FREE FALLED ABOUT TWENTY FEET DOWN THROUGH THOSE LIGHT TUBES! KASSIDY IS WRITHING IN PAIN! THAT GLASS ALL AROUND HER NOW WITH SHARDS STICKING IN ALL AROUND HER BODY! CUTS ALL ON HER ARMS AND HER FACE NOW, AND THERES LARGER SHARDS STICKING INTO HER CLOTHES TOO! KASSIDY IS HURTING! BUT AHREN FOURNIER HAS THAT SICK AND SADISTIC LOOK ON HIS FACE! AHREN CLIMBS UP A COUPLE MORE STEPS! HE LOOKS DOWN AT HIS FORMER BUSINESS PARTNER… AHREN FOURNIER WITH A LEAPING SPLASH FROM THE TOP OF THE LADDER AND CRASHING INTO KASSIDY HEART LAYING IN THAT PILE OF GLASS!

Eve: THESE TWO JUST WANT TO KILL EACH OTHER! AHREN IS HURTING! GLASS NOW STICKING OUT OF HIS LEGS AND ARMS AS HE FIGHTS THROUGH THE PAIN AND PUSHES HIMSELF TO HIS KNEES! AHREN NOW DRAGS KASSIDY BY HER HAIR AND ROLLS HER INTO THE RING! AHREN SAYS ITS OVER! HE SLIDES IN AND HOOKS A LEG FOR WHAT IS SOMEHOW THE FIRST PINFALL OF THIS MATCH!!!

Ref: ONEEEEEEEEEE!

TWOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

Deadprez: BUT KASSIDY KICKS OUT! I THOUGHT SHE MAY HAVE BEEN DEAD! KASSIDY HEART FINDS IT IN HERSELF TO POWER THROUGH THE PAIN AND FIGHT ON! Ahren is dumbfounded, and so am I! I don’t recall the last time I saw something like that! But Ahren is back on the assault! He tans a couple of shards out of his arm and now rolls over, placing one knee into Kassidy’s stomach and grabbing her by the head! AND NOW JUST FIRING AWAY REPEATEDLY WITH FISTS TO THE FACE OF THE WOMENS CHAMPION! KASSIDY IS ALREADY CUT FROM THE GLASS, THESE SHOTS JUST OPENING HER UP MORE AND MORE! BLOOD FLOWING FROM BOTH COMPETITORS!

Eve: Didn’t we just start like a few minutes ago?

Deadprez: Exactly, Eve! That is the level of hatred between these two! Ahren blames Kassidy for costing him everything! Kassidy hates Ahren for his abusive use of her for the last seven plus months! AND NOW AHREN TURNS HER OVER! TRYING TO APPLY THE LULLABY! THE CROSSFACE CHICKEN WING! HE HAS HIS ARM AROUND HER THROAT BUT AHREN TRYING TO SECURE THE ARM! KASSIDY FIGHTING IT THOUGH! TRYING TO STAY ALIVE AFTER SURVIVING SUCH A GRUESOME MOMENT ALREADY! AHREN FIGHTING FOR THE ARM CONTROL! BUT KASSIDY NOW THROWING ELBOWS INTO HIS RIBS AND MANAGES TO ESCAPE HIS GRIP!

Eve: KASSIDY ROLLING AWAY! BUT AHREN IN HOT PURSUIT! AHREN NOT GOING TO LET HER ESCAPE AND—

**CRACK**

Deadprez: KASSIDY HEART JUST SMASHED THAT RAZORWIRE CHAIR RIGHT INTO THE FOREHEAD OF THE GOAT! AHREN DROPS LIKE DEAD WEIGHT TO THE CANVAS AND KASSIDY SETS HERSELF IN POSITION! AHREN IS STUNNED, LACERATED ALL OVER AND BEGINNING TO JUST BE COVERED IN HIS OWN BLOOD AS WELL AS KASSIDYS AS HE PUSHES HIMSELF TO HIS KNEES TO TRY AND— PAINFULLY EVER AFTER! KASSIDY WITH THE CURB STOMP ON AHREN! THE WOMENS CHAMPION MAKES THE COVER!

Ref: ONEEEEEEEEEE!

TWOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

Eve: Kickout by Ahren! He isn’t ready to stay down and isn’t going to let Kassidy take this win from him! Kassidy is already looking for the best way to inflict some pain however! She rolls out of the ring and is under the apron yet again! Shes— Jesus fuck! Is that another ladder? How many damn ladders are here tonight?!? Kassidy pulls this new ladder out, and now she’s laying it across the ring apron and the commentary desk! Creating a bridge of sorts and— BASEBALL SLIDE FROM AHREN FOURNIER! HE KNOCKS KASSIDY BACK FIRST INTO THE COMMENTARY DESK BEFORE BLASTING HER IN THE FACE WITH A FOREARM! Ahren now takes Kassidy and pulls her up— LIFTING HER AND POWERSLAMMING HER RIGHT ONTO THAT LADDER SHE JUST SET UP! Kassidy Heart is laid out right here in front of us and now we have Ahren Fournier and those twisted gears turning in his mind again!

Deadprez: Ahren looking— what he found that kinda quick! What’s that? A bottle? A BOTTLE OF TURPENTINE! The ring crew uses it as a cleaning solvent in rough situations but I don’t think that’s what Ahren has in mind! He walks over and begins to douse the table Kassidy had set up with the liquid! Now Ahren looking for something else under the ring but I can only guess as to what that— KASSIDY HEART WITH A SHOTGUN DROPKICK FROM BEHIND! AHREN IS SENT INTO THE BARRICADE AND KASSIDY LOOKING TO PUNISH HIM! KASSIDY RUNS IN AND PLANTS A KNEE DIRECTLY INTO AHRENS SKULL! AHRENS HEAD SNAPS BACK AND KASSIDY IMMEDIATELY GRABBING THE RING SKIRT TO LOOK UNDER YET AGAIN!

Eve: But Ahren right behind her! He’s shaking off the effects of that knee and dragging himself to his feet! Ahren now up and tried to grab Kassidy—

**ZAP**

Eve: BUT KASSIDY WITH A CATTLE PROD RIGHT BETWEEN THE EYES OF THE GOAT! AHREN FLAILS BACK IN PAIN NOW AS KASSIDY STANDS WITH A SMILE ON HER FACE! SHE RUSHES OVER AND IMMEDIATELY BEGINS USING THE ELECTRIFIED END OF THAT CATTLE PROD ALL OVER AHREN! ZAPPING HIM ON HIS BACK, HIS LEG, HIS ARM!

Deadprez: Oh dear god no…

Eve: KASSIDY JUST ZAPPED AHREN ON HIS UNPROTECTED GROIN! AHREN SPASMING UNCONTROLLABLY AS THE ELECTRICITY SENDS HIS MUSCULAR SYSTEM INTO A FRENZY!

Deadprez: Not to mention his testicular system…

Eve: Kassidy now grabbing that baseball bat and tossing it inside the ring! She tosses the cattle prod in as well and now goes to grab Ahren and I can only assume she will look to finish things off here— BUT AHREN DUMPS HER UP AND OVER THE BARRICADE! Ahren stumbles away after Kassidy crashes out to the EAW Universe! Ahren now taking his chance to breathe after the assault on his nervous system! He looks around and sees the ladder that stands in front of the table. Ahren now popping the supports out of the ladder and sliding it into the ring. He slides in with the ladder now but Kassidy Heart climbing her way out of the sea of fans! She landed hard on the concrete there but it’s not even close to the worst she’s taken just here tonight! Kassidy slides into the ring— BUT ONLY TO BE MET FACE FIRST WITH THE LEG OF THAT LADDER FROM AHREN! FOURNIER NOW TAKING THE LADDER AND LIFTING IT STRAIGHT UP, DRIVING THE LEG INTO THE BODY OF KASSIDY HEART! OVER AND OVER AGAIN AS HE TRIES TO BREAK HER BODY AND SPIRIT!

Deadprez: BUT KASSIDY REACHES OUT AND HAS A GRIP ON THAT KENDO STICK! SHE DESPERATELY PUTS IT UP TO TRY AND BLOCK THE LADDER!

**SNAP**

Deadprez: BUT THE LADDER SNAPS THE KENDO STICK IN HALF! AHREN CONTINUING THE ASSAULT AS KASSIDY HAS NO WHERE TO GO—

Eve: BUT KASSIDY SHOVES THE JAGGED END OF THAT KENDO STICK AND DRIVES IT INTO THE FLESH OF AHRENS THIGH! AHREN DROPS THE LADDER IN PAIN AND THAT IS WHY KASSIDY IS WEARING JEANS TONIGHT! That jagged half of the kendo stick is sticking right out of the wound in Ahren’s leg! Blood flowing from that gash and now Kassidy pushes herself to her feet and grabs ahold of the stick, driving it deeper into Ahren’s leg! Ahren screaming in agony as Kassidy now kicks him square in the face and drops down, hooking the impaled leg!

Ref: ONEEEEEEEEEE!

TWOOOOOOOOOOOOO—

Deadprez: Ahren kicks out with his hurt leg but that took a lot out of him! Look at him now as he rolls over! Ahren reaches down and— Oh god I’m gonna be sick— he just pulled that half of the kendo stick out and you could hear the sound of it separating from the internal tissue…

Eve: This match is getting harder and harder to watch but that’s how far these two are willing to go to put the other down! This battle is less about winning the match and more about winning the fight! Kassidy now grabbing Ahren and— KASSI! KASSI! KASSI! OI! OI! OI!

Deadprez: KASSIDY HAS THE BRAZILIAN HEEL HOOK LOCKED IN ON AHREN’S WOUNDED LEG NOW AS SHE CRANKS BACK ON IT! HE MAY NOT WALK AFTER THIS MATCH! AHREN IN IMMENSE PAIN NOW AS THE LIGAMENTS IN HIS KNEE ARE TEARING IN THAT HOLD! AND THAT GASH IN HIS LEG IS POURING! AHREN DESPERATE FOR AN ESCAPE BUT THE REFEREE IS ASKING IF HE WANTS TO GIVE UP! AHREN SHOVING THE REFEREE OUT OF THE WAY BUT HE CANT SEEM TO FIND A WAY OUT! THAT HEEL HOOK IS DEEP AND KASSIDY IS NOT LETTING UP! AHREN LOOKING AROUND FOR SOMETHING! ANYTHING TO KEEP THE GOAT ALIVE!

Eve: AHREN HAS THE BLOODIED KENDO STICK-SPEAR! SMASHING IT REPEATEDLY INTO THE FACE OF KASSIDY HEART NOW!! OVER AND OVER JUST CRACKING THAT WOODEN TORTURE DEVICE OVER HER HEAD AGAIN AND AGAIN! AND FINALLY KASSIDY RELEASES THE HOLD! BUT AHREN STILL SMACKING HER WITH THAT KENDO STICK! OVER AND OVER NOW UNTIL KASSIDY ROLLS AWAY! Kassidy clutching at her head in the corner now as Ahren now presses his way up to his feet— OH BUT HE NEARLY FALLS OVER! HE CANT PUT ANY PRESSURE ON THAT LEG! The referee now checking on Fournier— BUT AHREN JUST GRABBED THE REFEREE AND TORE THE SLEEVE OFF THE MAN’S SHIRT! Ahren dropping down now while he has a moment and tying that sleeve around his upper leg! He’s turned it into a make-shift tourniquet! He tries to massage some life into that leg now, climbing his way to his feet! Ahren is limping but he’s walking again! The GOAT now looking to find his next move! He grabs that ladder again and sets it up inside the ring!

Deadprez: What the hell is he thinking? He cant be climbing a ladder like that with his leg all maimed! Hes pushing himself up onto that bottom rung of the ladder as he tries to use his upper body to do most of the work! Ahren using his one good leg to get himself up! He’s almost to the top of the ladder now— BUT KASSIDY IS UP TOO! THE UNIVERSAL WOMENS CHAMPION CLIMBING HER WAY UP TO THE FOCUS OF HER HATRED! BOTH OF THEM UP ONCE AGAIN AT THE TOP OF THE LADDER! BOTH OF THEM BEGIN TO THROW PUNCHES AGAIN— BUT AHREN RAKES THE EYES! HE DOESNT WANT TO PLAY THIS GAME ANYMORE! AHREN GRABS HER JUST LIKE BEFORE AND LIFTS HER UP! SUPERPLEX POSITION!

**CRASH**

**CRACK**

**THUD**

Eve: AHREN JUST SUPERPLEXED KASSIDY FOR REAL THIS TIME AND THEY BOTH WENT FALLING! BUT THEY BOTH FELL OVER THE TOP ROPE AND RIGHT INTO THAT BRIDGED LADDER ON THE OUTSIDE, SNAPPING IT IN HALF AS THEY BOTH LAY MOTIONLESS ON THE RINGSIDE FLOOR!

Deadprez: I have no idea who took the worst of that…

Eve: Same here! Ahren sacrifices his own body to make sure that move connected and planted Kassidy! That ladder is in pieces beneath them and neither is moving! I think the referee may consider calling this match right here!

Ref: ONE!

Ahren now grabbing Kassidy and rolling her over! Throttling her by the throat and bashing her head back into the mat!

Ahren Fournier (off-mic): I AM THE GOAT! YOU BOW TO ME BITCH!

Deadprez: AHREN SCREAMING AT HER AS HE MANHANDLES HER ON THE GROUND! HE BACKHAND SLAPS HER ACROSS THE FACE AS HE STANDS TO HIS FEET! AHREN LIMPS HIS WAY OVER TO THE SIDE OF THE RING WHERE HE HAS THAT CATTLE PROD NOW! KASSIDY TRYING TI GET TO HER FEET BUT AHREN WAITING NOW WITH THAT PROD! KASSIDY UP TO HER FEET! AHREN JABS WITH THE CATTLE PROD!

Eve: BUT KASSIDY WITH A WHEEL KICK SENDS THE CATTLE PROD FLYING! The cattle prod flies to the outside and— AND IT LANDS HEAD FIRST ON THE TURPENTINE TABLE! THE IMPACT CAUSES IT TO SPARK AND THE CATTLE PROD IGNITES THAT TABLE!

Deadprez: BUT AHREN AND KASSIDY NOW LAYING INTO EACH OTHER INSIDE THE RING! NEITHER ONE WILLING TO RELENT IN THIS WAR!

Deadprez: Eve, you cant say that. The appropriate phrase is mentally challenged.

Eve: ………….

Deadprez: BUT NOW THE REFEREE IS ON THE OUTSIDE AND HE HAS THAT FIRE EXTINGUISHER FROM EARLIER! THE REFEREE PUTTING THE FLAMES OUT AS KASSIDY LAYS THERE IN THE WRECKAGE AND NOW AHREN IS ON THE OUTSIDE AND SCREAMING INTO THE FACE OF THE REFEREE!

Ahren Fournier (off-mic): WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU DOING?!?

Referee (off-mic): It was on fire! What do you want me to—

Eve: AHREN JUST SLAPPED THAT REFEREE!!

Ahren Fournier (off-mic): YOU COUNT THE PINFALL OR THE SUBMISSION! THATS IT! YOU WEAR BLACK AND WHITE BUT YOU ARE NOT A FIREHOUSE DALMATION! IF SHE DIES NO ONE WOULD CARE ANYWAY!

(The Camera turns to see Kassidy, clutching at several burns around her arms and the singe on her clothes smoking as she crawls away from the wreckage. Ahren walks over to her.)

Ahren Fournier (off-mic): THATS RIGHT! CRAWL AWAY LITTLE BITCH! JUST LIKE YOU CRAWLED AWAY FROM EMPIRE WHEN THEY DIDNT WANT YOU! JUST LIKE YOU CRAWLED RIGHT TO ME LOOKING FOR THE HELP OF A REAL STAR! JUST LIKE YOU CRAWLED AWAY FROM ME WHEN YOU REALIZED YOU COULDN’T LIVE UP TO STANDING NEXT TO THE GOAT!

(Ahren grabs Kassidy by the hair and yanks her up before throwing her forward into the pile of glass shards that she had crashed through earlier.)

Ahren Fournier (off-mic): BECAUSE THATS ALL YOU WILL EVER DO, KASSIDY! CRAWL YOUR WAY THROUGH LIFE WHEN THINGS DONT GO YOUR WAY! I DONT CARE WHAT TITLE YOU HAVE! YOU HAVE NEVER BEEN ABLE TO HANDLE IT! YOU WILL NEVER BE ABLE TO!

(DING! DING! DING!)

Gina Romano: Ladies and Gentlemen, your winner, the EAW Universal Womens Champion, KASSIDYYYYYY HEEEAARRRTTTT!!

Eve: BEATEN! BATTERED! BLOODIED! BUT NEVER BROKEN! KASSIDY HEART OVERCOMES AHREN FOURNIER ONCE AND FOR ALL!

(Kassidy slumps down against the ropes as her championship is brought to her. She’s drenched in blood with various burns from the fire around her body. The most notable thing being a flash of white from a joyous smile as she hears “Put Em Up” hit the speakers again.)

Deadprez: Kassidy showed nothing but Heart here tonight! This is why she was the Iconic Cup Winner! This is why she’s the Universal Womens Champion! This is why she stands now as one at the very top!

(The crowd erupts as Kassidy is helped to her feet. She holds her championship up high, nearly stumbling back into the referee as she finally relaxes. Medical staff rush the area to tend to the wounded competitors.)

Eve: What a brutal matchup! This was nothing short of carnage! These two risked their absolute lives for this moment! But tonight, Kassidy Heart stands tall! The woman who wasn’t supposed to make it! The woman who was used, abused, and treated as garbage by so many! And now she stands tall with her abuser bloodied behind her!

(The Camera closes in on Kassidy holding her championship as a medic comes and begins to examine her. The shot then transitions to backstage.)

( A glorious high-point of an orchestra symphony can be heard, and we get a birds eye view of a populous colonial town. We hear alternating samples of “Beethoven Lives Upstairs” and “The Great Gate of Kiev” from Pictures at an Exhibition. )

“Monday, March 26th, 1827”

“November 28th, 1929”

“June 26-28th, 2020”

*Record scratching*

( A slowed down version of “America The Beautiful” can be heard in the background from what appears to be an old school radio. We see split-second flashes of soldiers marching, being gunned down, the American flag waving, ducking in WWI style trenches, Presidents signing peace treaties, JFK waving to a crowd, and a bell being rung by a hammer. )

( The drums of a marching band can be heard. We see fireworks going off, and hear audio samples from “Charles Lindbergh Report” by Lowell Thomas, a report on Hank Aaron, “Robert Kennedy Eulogy” by Ted Kennedy, “Farewell to Baseball” by Lou Gehrig, “Greetings to the Children of England” by Princess Elizabeth and Princess Margaret, quotes from Muhammad Ali, Thomas Edison, and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream”. These samples go by quickly, making it difficult for the listener to process what they are hearing. )

( The footage transitions to a CRT monitor in what appears to be an average American living room, circa 1980s. The beginning of “History” by Michael Jackson plays. The CRT monitors start to see flashes of major historic moments from Pain for Pride, with EAW Hall of Famers and legends holding up championships, making their entrance, Masters delivering a spinebuster, Ronn Banks delivering ”Go To Retirement”, Impact kissing the face of one of his World Championships, Heart Break Boy delivering a moonsault out of the ring to the amazement of the crowd. These moments are hard to process, as they’re mixed in with an array of historical references, including the declaration to tear down the Berlin wall, the marching of British soldiers, fighter planes taking off from WWII. )

“♫DON’T LET NO ONE GET YOU DOWN,
KEEP MOVING ON HIGHER GROUND ♫”

( CRT displays a flash showing Serena Bennett making a lively entrance, and another flash of Drake King hyping up an audience. )

” ♫KEEP FLYING UNTIL
YOU ARE THE KING OF THE HILL♫”

( CRT displays a flash showing Andrea Valentine delivering the V-Day, then shows Malcolm Jones delivering the ‘Five Star Swag Splash’ and showing off with the EAW Championship and a crown on his head. )

“♫NO FORCE OF NATURE CAN BREAK
YOUR WILL TO SELF-MOTIVATE♫”

( CRT displays Charlie Marr beating his chest, then Mr. DEDEDE psyching himself up before delivering a spear. )

“♫ SHE SAY THIS FACE THAT YOU SEE,
IS DESTINED FOR HISTORY. ♫”

( CRT displays Jamie O’Hara, Chris Elite and Kassidy Heart from past footage – all taking in the grand atmosphere that is Pain for Pride. )

*SCREEN INTERRUPTION*

“. ♫Every day create your history
Every path you take you’re leaving your legacy
Every soldier dies in his glory
Every legend tells of conquest and liberty . ♫ ”

( “History” by Michael Jackson slowly pans out. The last words that can be viewed on the trailer are “PAIN FOR PRIDE. PHILADELPHIA. JUNE 26TH – 28TH.” )

Final voiceover: “Some men see things as they are and say ‘why?’. I dream things that never were, and say ‘why not’.”

( We get a video package of the history between the AWC match participants: starting with Mr. DEDEDE establishing his alliance with Theron Nikolas at Pain for Pride Festival last year, aiding Theron in defeating Ronn Banks and sending him into retirement. We see the formation of The 1% at The EAW Draft, with an onslaught unleashed on Cameron Ella Ava and especially Jamie O’Hara that resulted in DDD blasting his weapon, The Equalizer, over Jamie’s head and putting him out of action indefinitely. Highlights of the reign of terror courtesy of The 1% running roughshod over Dynasty and EAW follow suit, with the emphatic point being Operation: Doomsday where Theron Nikolas, courtesy of assistance from DDD and the 1%, screwed Darkane out of the Answers World Championship and Theron superkicked thumbtacks down Darkane’s throat. We see DEDEDE also take Darkane out at the end of a tag team match, smashing The Equalizer over Darkane’s skull, putting him out of commission for what appeared to be indefinitely.

Jamie O’Hara’s return is highlighted as well as the Syncon campaign leading up to the big reveal, with him laying Theron Nikolas out at the end of his title retention at Road to Redemption. We view highlights of the showdown between Theron and O’Hara at King of Elite 2019, with Theron coming out victorious by the skin of his teeth. We also see Darkane’s return, with him and Erebus dealing with DDD’s hired guns in The DDD Task Force, and also triumphantly battling with Monster & The Devil.

The decline of The 1% is depicted through showing moments of disagreement between DDD and Theron, which led the way to Theron and Queens Court turning on DEDEDE at the end of the Ides of March Supershow. Highlights of Jamie O’Hara’s performance at the 2019 Grand Rampage are shown with him winning the Grand Rampage match and earning a second opportunity at facing Theron for the Answers World Championship.

We then see Darkane get his opportunity at the Answers World Championship on the Gateway to Glory FPV, and on the brink of a victory by Darkane Mr. DEDEDE would emerge and simultaneously cost Darkane the championship, as well as follow up with an attack on Theron thanks to an assist from Amber Keys. The video package ends with the announcement of the fatal four way match, and covers the anticipation of the match, the moments where all four Elitists shared the ring with each other, and their own personal declarations of vengeance upon their enemies, and victories at the Mecca of Culture, Pain for Pride XII. )

( Open back up to Mercedes Benz Stadium. )

( The focus is on the stage from the perspective of the ramp. A holographic graveyard begins to emerge from the floor of the stage, and sounds of thunder and lightning begin to permeate throughout the stadium sound system. The lighting transforms the arena into a dark, shadowy arena while the diamonds in the background of the titantron glow pulsating shades of blood red. )

“You’re all the same the lot of ya
with your long hair and faggot clothes
drugs, sex, every sort of filth
and you hate the police, don’t ya
you make it easy…”

( The opening riffs to “Wizard in Black” by Electric Wizard begin to play. Soon, Darkane slowly emerges from beneath the soil of the holographic graveyard, on all fours, covered in a brown cloak and climbing out of the ‘dirt’ with his signature shovel in hand. He tears the brown cloak from his body and then stands tall holding his shovel up to the adoring audience, beholding the atmosphere of the Pain for Pride main event. )

Stew-O: The fateful night of October 20th, 2018 has been etched into this man’s mind for the last eight months. That was the day when Darkane, for all intents and purposes, was robbed of the Answers World Championship. Two weeks following that event he would be hospitalized following a shot over the head with The Equalizer, and rendered unable to compete for the remainder of that year. Darkane has sought after every opening, every opportunity, at exacting justice for himself when it would not be given to him. He has sought revenge for himself, and has stopped at nothing for just an opportunity to make his enemies pay for conspiring against him.

Flannery McCoy: He may finally have that opportunity Stew! Just one year ago Darkane proved exactly how capable he is of performing on a stage like this under this level of scrutiny. He may have his doubters, I understand that, but he’s toppled some of the best in the history of this company during his Answers World Championship reign, There is no doubt that he belongs here!

Stew-O: He certainly does Flannery, however you could also argue last year was preliminary in comparison to the obstacle he is facing tonight. Three of the most highly skilled, highly capable Elitists .. basically ever! Here in the final match up of what has been a Pain for Pride that will without question bode superior in the history books over many other Pain for Prides of the past! All of the hurdles he has had to overcome, all of the roads that he has had to pave by himself just to return here – and still the journey is still far, far from over.

( Darkane, walking down the ramp, is confronted with holographic ghosts. One depicting a blonde haired fork tongued ghost holding a book labeled “book of lies.” The other depicting a ghost sitting on a throne which is marked as a “throne of lies.” The final is depicted as wearing a robe that reads the words “‘Ascended’ Master of lies”. He swats the three holographic apparitions away with his shovel, before continuing to the ring. )

Flannery McCoy: What an incredible display. Symbolic too, it says a lot about how much he is fighting for – or rather, fighting against. This is more than just about obtaining championship gold for Darkane, and going back to what you said just now you could argue the real journey hasn’t even officially started yet Stew. However if Darkane has his way, the journey not only begins tonight upon the toll of the bell, but that journey will end with him holding the Answers World Championship for the 2nd time!

( “Wizard In Black” fades out…)

*KNOCK* *KNOCK* *KNOCK*

( “Talk Up” by Jay-Z and Drake hits. Immediately the whole stage glows in white hot lights with purple flashes that ‘dance’ in fluctuating brightness upon the bass of the music. Smoke billows through the curtain until the entire stage is covered in smoke. Flames start pulsing up and down from the parts of the stage, and Mr. DEDEDE confidently strolls out to the stage dressed in a “Gawdzilla Pro©” tracksuit, talking to the camera on his way to the ring. )

Stew-O: Five years ago I sat in this very seat and made the declaration that the career of this man before us had reached its Zenith. Five years ago in this exact same circumstance, in the headline of Pain for Pride, Mr. DEDEDE left a match dubbed ‘Battle of the Gods’ with the World Heavyweight Championship and all the spoils that came with it to be his for the taking! Five years later, and this man has the opportunity to TOTALLY REDEFINE the meaning of being a Gawd!

( DDD stops at the center of the ramp, and hoists up both horn signs causing pyro to rocket from the top of the stage. Subsequently, pyro rockets up from the top of the Mercedes Benz Stadium into the night sky, and a dazzling display of fireworks set off, lighting up downtown Atlanta. He continues his path to the ring. )

Stew-O: Entering his 12th Pain for Pride performance, it is suffice to say that without him we don’t have a Pain for Pride 12 to begin with. We have seen ruthlessness from this man this season like never before, and what an exclamation point it would be to the run of terror that Gawdzilla has been on, if he concluded it with the Answers World Championship?

Flannery McCoy: It would only signify the beginning Stew. To his credit as well, this is only his 2nd World Championship opportunity in the last THREE YEARS. It cannot be understated how efficient this man is in situations like this. You can just see it in how comfortable he looks out there. I genuinely believe he is the only man to compete on this stage and not have any sort of butterflies in his stomach. If I’m competing in this match, he is the biggest target in my mind. Thank God I’m not competing in this match :lupe:

( “Talk Up” dies down. DDD and Darkane are trash talking across the ring, with the referee in between them both to prevent either men from coming to blows. )

(The lights fade. The sound of the orchestra begins to play)

Narrator: Conqueror. King. You were it all.

(A few lights shine down on the stage. A throne sitting beneath the diamond LED, a pile of bodies laying at the base of it and many more strewn across the stage base. A King sits, donned with a thick, black coat with a crown donning his head)

Narrator: Until it was taken. Stolen. Desecrated.

(The throne begins to fall apart as the man on the steps forward before collapsing to his knees as he’s stripped of the crown and the coat. The lights begin to fade until a lone, red spotlight shines down upon him. For a moment, silence fills the air as the orchestra music comes to a stop; simply the lone figure beneath the spotlight before that too fades)

Narrator: But you dared not to walk into the darkness. Dared not to let it all end.

(The orchestra returns as strands of energy begin to flow across the stadium’s parapets and circular jumbotron. Slowly, they begin to flow towards the man, across the stage before swirling beneath him)

Narrator: Forever unbowed……unbent……

(The pace of the music and the flow of energy intensify to a rapid pace before cutting out in an instant once more)

Narrator: Forever…UNBROKEN!!!

(Immediately, the LEDs on the stage base explode in an array of cosmic dust and colours. The graphic pulsates from beneath the figure and races across the stadium – down the ramp, across the ring gear and the parapet of the stadium. Lights along the base of the stage shoot vertical, those hanging from above facing directly down on the stage, the spotlight intensifying until the man is nothing more than a barely visible silhouette in the light behind a wall of lights)

Narrator: Chasing glory. Chasing greatness. A need to rise. A need to ASCEND.

(The pace of the music dramatically picks up as segment beneath the man begins to rise. As the platform rises, the man begins to rise to his feet; his head rising and staring out to the crowd as the lights follow his ascension. The platform stops some 15ft in the air as a blast of blue pyrotechnics explode around the base of the stage. On cue, the stadium once again descends into darkness and the orchestra comes to an immediate halt)

Narrator: A King no more. Now, become something greater…

(“Ultimate Battle” by ZENTA explodes across the stadium’s PA as the crowd erupts in cheers. The lights return as Jamie O’Hara stands on the risen platform in his attire and a white leather jacket. Motionless, O’Hara stares out across the sea of fans with a half cocked grin across his face. Slowly, O’Hara raises his hand and more segments from the LED stage base begin to rise, creating an LED staircase down to the ramp. O’Hara closes his eyes for a moment, taking in a big breath and begins to make his way down the staircase with pure intent in his eyes as the previous step begins to descend back to the base behind him. A shot of the outside of the stadium shows blue and white fireworks explode across the rim of the stadium.)

Stew-O: An otherworldly reaction for the EAW Hall of Famer! The longest reigning World Champion in the history of this great company touches down here at the Mecca of Culture, a stage where he has accomplished SO much already! A case can certainly be made that this young man has hardly even scratched the surface of the prime of his career, that he’s only broached upon the peak of his physical abilities and his in-ring mental acuity.

Flannery McCoy: It’s why he has worked tirelessly to become the Ascended Master. His legendary performance in this years Grand Rampage match just about confirms your case that he has surpassed his own previous limits.

Stew-O: The difference maker is the stage, the situation, the company that O’Hara is in. He can surpass his own self all he wants, but Pain for Pride is truly about where the peak of your own abilities match against the peak of others! I think we’ve seen Jamie succeed for so long off of sharpening his own blade. His own natural abilities have superseded his competition for so long – but now he is walking into a den of lions with claws as long and sharp as his! These are four bonafide alpha males who will sooner DIE before bowing to another, and I think this environment will draw something out of Jamie that we have NEVER seen before!

( O’Hara is in the ring warming up in place. Darkane seats at the corner looking attentively at the stage. DDD has ripped off his tearaway tracksuit to reveal his ring gear underneath, and has also averted his gaze to the stage. “Ultimate Battle” dies down, and the three combatants already in the ring wait idly by. )

( “I Hope You Suffer” by AFI begins to play. Theron Nikolas slowly walks out onto the stage dressed in “God of Thunder” ring attire and overcoat. He wears the Answers World Championship around his waist, and looks around at the audience talking up a storm, reminding the world and reminding himself that he has made it to where he is despite all odds. )

Flannery McCoy: And whether you love him, whether you hate him, it has been a Season 12 of completely defying every ceiling placed above him by every doubter – myself included. At every single turn where Theron was told “no”, he remained defiant, until one day this man found himself with the entire world in his palms.

Stew-O: Arrogance. Resourcefulness. Craftiness. Stubbornness. Resilience. Brilliance. These principal qualities sum up what has allowed Theron Nikolas to reach an unprecedented 247 days as the Answers World Champion, and there has been nothing any one of his foes have been able to do to stop him – so far. But behind that ‘enthusiasm’, behind that fired up demeanor he carries into the Mecca of Culture, I think Theron understands as well as everybody else in this building that he is up against odds that no other man or woman have EVER had to face in the history of this company!

Flannery McCoy: Considering what his opponents have been able to accomplish in their illustrious careers, I think you’re correct Stew. But for the sake of discussion, Theron Nikolas really isn’t even ‘supposed’ to be here. He was always an exemplary talent, he was always a cut above the others, but he has truly exceeded the expectations set for him because people constantly time and time again underestimate him. And you know what? These three men in the ring are far from excluded! All three of Theron Nikolas’ opponents have suffered dearly during this season, in some form or fashion, for underestimating him! And if they allow him ANY opportunity, they can absolutely forget about leaving this event with the Answers World Title, it just isn’t going to happen!

( Theron removes his overcoat and shows off his chiseled frame, before pulling the Answers World Championship from his waist and holding it high in the air. Fireworks begin to blast off from above the Mercedes Benz Stadium, and the patented arrogant smirk of his slowly creeps on his face. “I Hope You Suffer” dies down, and Theron assumes his corner. Stephie Love walks front and center in the ring. )

( DING! DING! DING! )

Stephie Love: The following contest IS YOUR DAY 3 HEADLINER OF PAIN FOR PRIDE, SCHEDULED FOR ONE FALL…

Crowd: ONE FALL!!!!!

Stephie Love: AND IT IS A FATAL FOUR WAY MATCH, FOR THE ANSWERS HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP OF THE WOOOOOOOOOOOOOORRRRLDDDDDDDDD!!!!! …

( DDD hops up and down in place out of adrenaline rushing through his body. He then points up to the massive circular scoreboard at the ceiling of Mercedes Benz Stadium which reads #GawdverbsOutNow on the ticker. )

Stephie Love: Introducing his opponents; first, from New Orleans, Louisiana, weighing in at 234 POOOOUNNNNDSSSS…. “THE GRAVE WORM”, DAAAAAAAARRRRKAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

( Darkane stretches out his arms in the crucifix motion, turning to the rabid audience eating out of the palm of his hands. )

Stephie Love: Next up, residing in Los Angeles, California by way of Melbourne, Australia, weighing in tonight at 190 POOOUNNNDSS… HE IS THE 2019 WINNER OF THE MEN’S GRAND RAMPAGE MATCH!!!! “THE ASCENDER MASTER”, JAAAAAAAAAAAMIEEEEEEEEEEEE OOOOOOOOO’HAAARRRRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!

( Theron Nikolas hoists up his Answers World Championship, flexing every muscle and reminding the world of his sovereignty as the God-Emperor. )

Stew-O: These men did very little press during the week leading up to this event. Attended very few fan engagements. Their focus was not the build up of this event, their focus was not on the spectacle, their attention is not towards anything else other than leaving The Mecca of the Culture as the Answers World Champion! They are motivated by nothing more and nothing less in life than leaving this grand spectacle with the world’s biggest prize here on the world’s biggest stage! The lights are on bright! NOTHING matters more than victory, NOTHING matters more than the present!

( Theron hands his Answers World Championship to the referee and the official passes it off to ringside before calling for the bell. )

( DING! DING! DING! )

Flannery McCoy: HEY!!!

Stew-O: IN EXCELSIS!!!!!!!! JAMIE BLASTS THERON RIGHT ACROSS THE HEAD WITH THE KNEE, SENDING HIM TUMBLING THROUGH THE ROPES AND OUT OF THE RING!

Jamie O’Hara (off-mic): FUCK OFF, CUNT.

Flannery McCoy: OH MY GOODNESS! FASTER THAN A DAMN GUNSHOT! DDD UNLEASHING UPON DARKANE WITH PUNCHES, DARKANE FIRING BACK BUT DDD BACKING DARKANE INTO THE CORNER WITH A BALLISTIC FLURRY OF RIGHTS AND LEFTS TO THE BODY — BUT JAMIE FROM BEHIND! JAMIE HOISTS DDD FROM BEHIND! STARDUST BREAKER!!!!!!!

Stew-O: DDD COUNTERS, DROPPING TO HIS KNEES BEFORE THE RIPCORD AND SLINGING JAMIE INTO THE CORNER, SANDWICHING DARKANE! DDD CHARGES!!!!! SPEAR!!!!!!!!!!! INTO JAMIE’S RIBS AS HE’S SANDWICHED INTO DARKANE! DARKANE STUMBLES OUT OF THE CORNER, DDD RUNS THE ROPES, ANOTHER SPEAR!!!!!!!!!! RIPPING THROUGH DARKANE!

Flannery McCoy: YOU’VE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!

Stew-O: THERON AT RINGSIDE RECOVERING ON ONE KNEE, AND DDD RUNS THE ROPES, GAINING MOMENTUM, GAINING MOMENTUM, “VINTAGE” DEDEDE!!!!! SOMERSAULT TOPE TAKING THE GOD-EMPEROR DOWN! Jamie O’Hara is down at ringside stumbling, staggering, holding his ribs following the spear he just took while in the corner! You can tell he’s upset with himself for allowing that to happen to him, he can’t believe he got hit with that after the advantage he started with! O’Hara is now leaning against the barricade —

Flannery McCoy: DDD SPOTS HIM CLEAR ACROSS RINGSIDE!!! DDD GOES SPRINTING AROUND THE RING, WATCH YOUR BACK JAMIE!!!!! WATCH YOUR BACK!!!!!

Stew-O: SPEEEEEEEEEEEARRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!! THROUGH THE FUCKING BARRICADE!!!!! TAKING OUT JAMIE O’HARA AND EVERYBODY IN THE VICINITY, AS BOTH MENS BODIES GO FLYING INTO THE CROWD!!!!

Flannery McCoy: WHAT THE HELL ARE WE SEEING??????

Stew-O: DEDEDE PULLS HIMSELF UP FROM THE WRECKAGE WITH A GNASHING OF TEETH, BEATING HIS CHEST! GAWDZILLA HAS ESTABLISHED A WARPATH IN THE VERY BEGINNING OF THE MAIN EVENT OF PAIN FOR PRIDE TO THE LIKES OF WHICH WE HAVE NEVER SEEN! And now he’s heading back over to ringside, flipping up the apron skirt of the ring, oh Jesus please don’t tell me, please don’t tell me!…..

Flannery McCoy: THE EQUALIZER!!!!! THE GUITAR FILLED WITH THUMBTACKS, NAILS AND SHARDS OF GLASS!!! LORD LOOK AT HIS EYES, THAT FIXED GAZED UP TO DARKANE IN THE RING, WHO IS UP TO HIS FEET LEANING AGAINST THE ROPES STILL RECOVERING! DEDEDE WASTES NO TIME, SLIDING IN, WINDING UP THE EQUALIZER, READY TO LAY WASTE TO DARKANE!!! NO!!!!! NO!!!!!!

Stew-O: SUPERKICK!!! From Theron!!! Blasting DDD directly in the eardrum, sending The Equalizer flying from his hands and out of the ring! Gawdzilla staggering but he’s still on his feet! THERON HOOKS HIM FROM BEHIND!!!! TOUCH OF HEROINE!!!!! DDD DUCKS UNDERNEATH THE ONCOMING ARM OF THE RAINMAKER LARIAT!!!!! HOOKS THERON!!!! GRAND SLAM!!!!! BUT IN MID-AIR THERON COUNTERS THE ROCK BOTTOM ATTEMPT WITH THE JUMPING REVERSE STO!!! THERON ADJUSTS HIS BODY, SPINNERING AROUND DDD’S BACK, AND HOISTS HIM! HOISTS HIM!!!! DEADLIFT GERMAN SUPLEX! BUT DDD IS SENDING BACK ELBOWS! REFUSING TO ALLOW THERON TO FINISH THE DEADLIFT — DARKANE!!!!!! DARKANE ‘ASSISTS’ THERON, BUT NOT IN THE WAY HE’D LIKE! DARKANE HOISTS THERON OFF HIS FEET, WHILE THERON HAS A HOLD OF DDD BY HIS WAIST!!! DARKANE WITH A BACK SUPLEX INTO A DOUBLE KNEE LUNGBLOWER ON THERON, WHILE THERON SUCCESSFULLY DELIVERS THE DEADLIFT GERMAN SUPLEX ON DDD!!!! DDD GOES CRASHING ONTO THE BACK OF HIS HEAD, AND DARKANE MANAGED TO SINK BOTH KNEES INTO THE SPINE OF THE CHAMPION!

Flannery McCoy: What a combo! DDD and Theron both feeling the effects of that, but still return to their feet at a similar pace! DARKANE BLASTS DDD WITH THE YAKUZA KICK SENDING HIM OUT OF THE RING!! Theron hooks Darkane from behind, TOUCH OF HEROINE PERHAPS???? Darkane spins out of it! CLOBBERS HIM with the rolling forearm! Theron stops himself from falling, and FIRES BACK WITH THE REVERSE ROUNDHOUSE!!! Darkane stumbles over to the corner holding his face! THERON WITH THE RUNNING DOUBLE KNEES INTO THE BACK OF THE HEAD! SANDWICHING DARKANES HEAD INTO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE! THERON PULLS DARKANE OUT OF THE CORNER FROM BEHIND, STRAIGHT JACKET HOLD APPLIED, AND TURNS HIM AROUND! BANG!!!!! TOUCH OF HEROINE!!!!!!!!! WAIT A SECOND WHAT?!?!?

( Darkane is hit with the full force Rainmaker Lariat, but he completely absorbs the impact of the blow, not even leaving his feet. )

Stew-O: THERON CAN’T EVEN BELIEVE IT HIMSELF!!! DARKANE COMPLETELY ATE THAT BLOW!! BUT LET’S NOT KID OURSELVES, HE FELT THE EFFECTS OF THAT, HELL I FELT THAT IMPACT FROM RINGSIDE! THERON FOLLOWS UP!!! SUPERKICK!!!!! THAT SENDS DARKANE STUMBLING INTO THE ROPES!!! DARKANE REBOUNDS OFF THE MIDDLE ROPE, WITH A PENDULUM LARIAT!!!!! CLOBBERING HIM!!!! WHAT. IS. HE. MADE. OF?!?!!

Flannery McCoy: THAT WAS INCREDIBLE! JUST PURE INSTINCT IF YOU EVER SAW IT! DARKANE COLLAPSES ON TOP OF THERON WITH AN ARM OVER HIS CHEST, THE REFEREE SLIDES DOWN TO THE MAT!

Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOONEEEEEEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

Stew-O: GENKI CANNON!!!!!!!!! O’HARA LEAPING FROM THE TOP TURNBUCKLE OUT OF NOWHERE WITH THE GENKI CANNON, DIRECTLY INTO THE SPINE OF THE GRAVE WORM!!!!!! I didn’t even see him coming!!! O’Hara drags Darkane off of Theron after a shocking, triumphant return to this match, and he may have sealed the deal with the double foot stomp finishing maneuver just now! Laying over the back of Darkane with the hook of the leg!

Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

Flannery McCoy: OH MY GOD!!!!!!!!!! DEDEDE!!!!!!!!!!! DEDEDE FROM THE HEAVENS, FLATTENS HIM WITH THE SHOOTING STAR PRESS FROM ACROSS THE RING!!!!!!!!!!!!! NORTH STAR BREAKING UP THE PIN!!!!!

Stew-O: BUT O’HARA LIFTS BOTH KNEES!!! DDD TURNED INSIDE OUT, LANDING RIBS FIRST RIGHT INTO THE KNEES FROM THAT SHOOTING STAR PRESS ATTEMPT! That was a timely save from O’Hara who again I’m surprised is even back into this after absorbing two spears just earlier in this match! This man was sent crashing through the BARRICADE! That’s enough to completely incapacitate a normal person, but if you expected anything “normal” to come from this match you are sorely mistaken! This has been utter chaos, a demolition derby from the ring of the bell! Mr. DEDEDE is recovering now, and O’Hara rushes up to him from behind LOOKING TO SEAL THE DEAL WITH THE STARDUST BREAKER!!!!!! BUT DDD MANAGES TO RIP AWAY THE GRIP FROM BEHIND AGAIN, SLINGING JAMIE FORWARD! O’Hara combat rolls back up, AND BLASTS DDD WITH A BEAUTIFUL PELE KICK!!! DDD TURNS AROUND!!! ANOTHER SUPERKICK BY THERON NIKOLAS HITS DDDS JAW!!! HE STAGGERS TOWARDS O’HARA!!! SLINGBLADE BY O’HARA TAKING DDD DOWN!!!! O’HARA FAVORING HIS RIBS STILL TURNS AROUND, AND SPRINTS OVER TO THERON! JOHN WOO DROPKICK, SENDING HIM CRASHING KIDNEYS FIRST INTO THE TURNBUCKLE CORNER! NOW O’HARA JOGS OVER TOWARDS THERON, BUT HOPS OVER THE ROPES AND SPRINGS ONTO THE APRON, WHERE DARKANE IS SITTING… BANG!!! FULL SPEED PENALTY KICK ACROSS THE FACE OF DARKANE!!!!

Flannery McCoy: But it doesn’t appear as though Jamie is quite done yet! Jamie O’Hara rushes over to another turnbuckle, climbing until he’s perched up at the top… LOOKING DOWN AT THERON BELOW!!!! I THINK HE WANTS TO GO TO THE GENKI CANNON WELL!!!! O’HARA LEAPS OFF!!!!!!! DOUBLE FOOT STOMP FROM THE TOP, DIRECTLY INTO THE FACE!!!

Stew-O: THERON ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY JUST IN TIME!!! JAMIE ROLLS THROUGH, PROTECTING HIMSELF VIA THE LANDING!!! — CORKSCREW CROSSBODY FROM MR. DEDEDE!!!! DDD TAKING O’HARA DOWN, AND NIPS UP RIGHT BACK TO HIS FEET, CHARGING OVER TO THERON WHO IS IN THE CORNER!!! RRRRRAPPPTUUUREEEEEEEE!!!! HELLUVA KICK TO THE ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION IN THE CORNER!!! Now The Gawd jumps through the ropes and descends to ringside, watching, stalking Darkane who is recovering following the penalty kick he just took the face! DEDEDE SPRINTS ACROSS RINGSIDE AGAIN!!!!! SLINGING HIMSELF THROUGH THE ROPES IN THE CORNER!!!!!! OH MY GOD!!!!!! OH MY GOD!!!!!! SLINGSHOT SPEAR THROUGH THE CORNER!!!!!

*CLANK*

Flannery McCoy: HOOOLY SHIT.!!!! :damn: DARKANE SWINGS HIS SHOVEL ACROSS DDDS FACE IN MID-AIR!!!!

Stew-O: DDD IS WEDGED INTO THE CORNER OF THE RING, STOPPED DEAD IN HIS TRACKS, FOLLOWING THAT ABSURD SHOT RIGHT ACROSS THE GAWD’S HEAD!!! IMAGINE BEING SMACKED IN THE FACE, FULL FORCE WITH A RUSTY FREAKING SPADE!!! Look at Darkane, he delivered that with so much force, that it hurt his own freaking hands! That doesn’t end DDDs suffering just yet! Darkane climbs up to that same apron and drags DDD by his hair, hurling verbal abuse! Darkane raining down punches! Forearms! Elbows! Just peppering DDD with strikes while he has no means of defending himself, with his body caught in the ropes horizontally! Darkane backs away now and delivers a JUMPING KNEE DROP right into the side of DDD’s head while his body is hung between the 1st and 2nd turnbuckle!

Flannery McCoy: Meanwhile Jamie O’Hara is following Theron who has attempted to retreat up the ramp! O’Hara and Theron are slugging it out at the bottom of the ramp, exchanging rights and lefts to each others bodies, but it’s very clear that O’Hara has the advantage! OH! O’HARA MAKES A MAD DASH AT THERON, AND TACKLES HIM INTO THE RAMP-SIDE BARRICADE! THEY SMASH THROUGH ONE OF THE LIGHT FIXTURES, AND SHARDS OF GLASS SINK RIGHT INTO THERON’S BACK!!!

Stew-O: Now Darkane drags DEDEDE out of that precarious position here right in front of us, instead bringing DDD into FAR MORE DANGEROUS TERRITORY!!! DARKANE CLIMBS UP THE APRON DRAGGING DDD UP ALONG WITH HIM!!! AND BRINGS DEDEDE DOWN WITH THE PUMPHANDLE NECKBREAKER, DIRECTLY INTO THE UNFORGIVING APRON OF THE RING!!!! GOD ALMIGHTY DDD WITH A DEADLY THUD RIGHT INTO THE HARDEST PART OF THE ENTIRE RING!!! DDD is hoisted up from the ringside floor again by Darkane, and Darkane fakes out like he’s going to send DDD back into the ring, but instead he TOSSES DEDEDE RIGHT OVER THE EMPIRE ANNOUNCE TABLE AT RINGSIDE, SENDING HIM COMPLETELY WIPING OUT!

Flannery: Darkane slides back into the ring, he immediately spots Jamie O’Hara attempting to bring Theron Nikolas back into the ring — AND DARKANE, WASTING ZERO TIME, TAKES BOTH MEN OUT WITH THE SUICIDE DIVE!!!! SENDING ALL THREE ELITISTS HIMSELF INCLUDED TUMBLING DOWN TO THE FLOOR. Darkane rises up rather quickly, you can tell he’s getting a nice little rhythm going for himself, and now he drags the body of the Answers World Champion up from the ringside mat before averting his attention over to the ringpost! Darkane has Theron by the nape of the neck and sends him running HEAD FIRST INTO THE LED POST! BUT THERON BLOCKS THE IMPACT WITH HIS FOREARMS! Theron battling back with an elbow to the sternum! Another one to the throat! He delivers a rake to the eyes, stunning Darkane and alloting the spice and time he needs to get back into this! Theron has found himself in an unusual position in this match, because he has had little to no control whatsoever – maybe he can find a way to assume control with this opening. Theron is back in the ring, he sees Jamie attempting to approach the apron, and Theron TAKES HIM BACK DOWN with a baseball slide dropkick underneath the ropes! Now Darkane is attempting to re-enter the ring from a different angle, and Theron backs away quickly and delivers the same baseball slide dropkick —

Stew-O: DARKANE DRAGS THE CHAMPION OUT OF THE RING BY HIS LEGS, SPIT KNOCKING UPPERCUT TURNS THE CHAMPION INSIDE OUT!!! AND DARKANE GRABS THERON QUICKLY BY THE NAPE OF THE NECK, AND GOES JOGGING ACROSS RINGSIDE TO SEND HIM CRASHING AGAINST THE STEEL RING STEPS!!! THE CHAMPION COMPLETELY WIPES OUT, THAT WAS NASTY!

Flannery McCoy: Doesn’t look like Darkane is finished with the steep steps either! He’s pulling them out of the position that they are wedged in, and he is LUGGING the steel steps in his hands….. WITH HIS SIGHTS FULL SET ON JAMIE O’HARA!!! O’HARA HAS ONLY JUST RETURNED TO HIS FEET!!!!! LOOK OUT!!!!!!!

Stew-O: BANG!!!! DARKANE CHUCKS THE FULL WEIGHT OF THE STEEP STEPS NEARLY ACROSS RINGSIDE, AND THEY COLLIDE INTO THE SIDE OF JAMIE O’HARA’S FACE!!!!! THE 2019 GRAND RAMPAGE WINNER HAS BEEN TAKEN DOWN AND OUT!!!

Flannery McCoy: WAIT A MINUTE! DARKANE ISN’T FINISHED! DARKANE ISN’T FINISHED! HE’S CLIMBING UP THE STEPS, AND HE REACHES DOWN PULLING JAMIE O’HARA UP FROM THE FLOOR AND INTO HIS GRASP…….. NO NO NO NO NO NO NO DON’T DO IT!!! DON’T DO IT!!!

Stew-O: CASKET!!!!!!! CLOSER!!!!!!! TOMBSTONE PILEDRIVER ON JAMIE O’HARA, DRILLING HIM SKULL FIRST INTO THE STEEL STEPS!!!! JAMIE O’HARA’S HEAD MAY AS WELL HAVE BEEN PLUNGED THROUGH THE REMORSELESS COLD STEEL! WHAT A SICKENING THUD, FROM HIS SKULL HITTING THE TITANIUM!

Flannery McCoy: Darkane has assumed control of this heart racing, high octane contest and he is turning it into his demonic playground! The demonstrative Grave Worm enters the ring, where Theron Nikolas has desperately climbed into, hoping for a place of solace and an opportunity at a reprieve, but he will not be afforded that opportunity! Darkane brings Theron down to a seated base after letting off a flurry of snap jabs into the corner. He is now stomping a mudhole on the cornered Answers World Champion who is sitting by the turnbuckle, barely able to defend himself! After at least a dozen stomps to the body, Darkane pulls Theron out of the corner! Headbutt takes Theron to his knees, and Darkane just mushes his face, SLAPPING Theron across his head, trash talking and letting Theron hear it! This is his chance to exact revenge for all of the B.S. Theron has forced him to endure over the season!

Stew-O: Darkane hoists Theron up by his head… getting into his face…

Darkane (off-mic): An eye for an eye makes a God-Emperor blind.

Stew-O: SAMOAN SPIKE DIRECTLY TO THE RIGHT EYE!!! EYE FOR AN EYE INDEED!!! THAT WAS PAYBACK FOR THERON RAKING THE EYES EARLIER! AND DARKANE KEEPS THERON HELD UP! WHAT THE??????

( Darkane hacks his thumb multiple times inside of Theron’s bleeding ear, delivering several Samoan Spikes to the eardrum. He proceeds to drill his thumb further and further into Theron’s ear. )

Flannery McCoy: I THINK I’M GOING TO BE SICK.

Stew-O: PURE UNADULTERATED NIGHTMARE FUEL FROM THE GRAVE WORM. THAT IS ONE OF THE MOST DISGUSTING THINGS I’VE SEEN IN A LONG TIME! Theron tosses and turns on the mat, the ref’s checking on his well being, and Theron continues his groaning and gripeing while sitting on the canas… THRUST KICK FROM DARKANE RIGHT ACROSS THE BACK OF THERON’S NECK!!! Theron rolls out to the apron holding the nape of his neck, and it isn’t too long before Darkane walks over to continue the damage. From in the ring Darkane pulls Theron up before yanking his upper torso underneath the ropes and HAMMERING AWAY with ferocious punches primarily to the chest, shoulders and the back of Theron’s head! Just a brutal dissection of the Answers World Champion, from the Grave Worm! Darkane runs the ropes now and BARRELS ACROSS THE RING FOR A RUNNING EUROPEAN UPPERCUT!!! ALMOST SPLITTING IMAGE SHADES OF THEIR MATCH AT GATEWAY TO GLORY — BUT NOT SO FAST, THERON HAD THAT SCOUTED, HE SLIDES IN THE RING BETWEEN DARKANES LEGS AND ROLLS HIM UP FROM BEHIND WITH AN O’CONNOR ROLL PIN!

Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

Flannery McCoy: DARKANE ROLLS THROUGH IT, AND DARKANE HAS THERON HOISTED UP FOR A GERMAN SUPLEX!!! STANDING SWITCH BY THE SELF-PROFESSED GOD-EMPEROR, INTO THE TOUCH OF HEROINE!!!!!! *pop* DARKANE COUNTERS WITH A BOOT TO THE ONCOMING ARM!! DID YOU HEAR THAT?! THAT MAY HAVE VERY WELL DISLOCATED HIS SHOULDER!!! DARKANE ISN’T GIVING HIM ANY QUARTER, DARKANE WRENCHES THAT SAME ARM, INTO “ENTER THE GRAVE”!!!!! ARMWRENCH HAMMERLOCK VERSION OF THE EVENFLOW DDT! DARKANE TURNING THE CHAMPION OVER, AND HOOKS THE LEG!!!

Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

Stew-O: KICK OUT! THE CHAMPION STAYING ALIVE DESPITE THE PUNISHMENT HE’S ENDURED! Darkane sits up spitting and cursing at the referee, and he makes his way over to the apron where that grave shovel of his is located. Darkane grabs the spade and slowly but surely walks back over to the champion… before SMASHING THE SHOVEL DIRECTLY OVER THE SPINE OF NIKOLAS!!!! THERON ROLLING AROUND, DESPERATELY TRYING TO ESCAPE THE RING, BUT DARKANE GRABS HIM BY THE BOOT AND DRAGS HIM AWAY FROM AND POSSIBILITY OF ESCAPE! Darkane places a firm boot on that damaged right arm of the Answers World Champion, and … and holds that spade in a downwards angle…… oh my goodness…

Darkane (off-mic): (laughing maniacally) FORE!!!

Flannery McCoy: FUCKING HELL!!! FUCKING HELL!!!! DARKANE PUTTS THE SHOVEL LIKE IT WERE A GOLF CLUB, AND CRACKS THE SHARP EDGE OF IT ACROSS THE NOSE OF THE ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION!!!

( Theron Nikolas squirms around holding his nose, which immediately begins to gush blood and pour down his face. )

Flannery McCoy: DARKANE DRAGGING THERON UP BY HIS HAIR, AND THERONS GROANS OF PAIN ARE MET WITH LAUGHTER FROM THE GRAVE WORM! THIS SICK MOTHERFUCKER!

Darkane (off-mic): Come on Theron what’s the matter? I’m just rearranging that fucked up face that momma gave you. Let’s see if we can do something about that crooked smile.

Flannery McCoy: C’MON DARKANE STOP THIS! THAT’S A HUMAN BEING!

Stew-O: DARKANE PRESSES THE EDGE OF THAT SHOVEL AGAINST THE THROAT OF THERON!!! AND IS LOOKING TO DELIVER “CALLING IN THE CORONER”!!!! THE STROKE MANEUVER TO SPIKE THAT RUSTY SHOVEL INTO THERON’S THROAT!!!!!

Flannery McCoy: BUT THERON GRABS A HOLD OF THE SHOVEL AT THE LAST SECOND, HE PUSHES IT AWAY FROM HIS THROAT, AND DELIVERS A KICK TO THE KNEE! DARKANE BROUGHT DOWN TO ONE KNEE, THERON TRYING TO RIP THE SHOVEL AWAY, BUT DARKANE REFUSES TO LET IT LEAVE HIS HANDS! DARKANE WITH ALL OF HIS STRENGTH PULLS THE SHOVEL – AND THERON – INTO HIM WITH A HEAVE — GODDAMN GODDAMN!!! HEMATOMA CAUSING JUMPING HEADBUTT FROM DARKANE!!! BOTH DARKANE AND THERON ARE BROUGHT DOWN TO ALL FOURS!

Stew-O: You could hear the sound of their skulls colliding from the State Farm Arena! These two have been temporarily stunned from that! But It’s not long before Darkane musters up enough to rush over to his shovel and grab a hold of it once again. Darkane now walks over to Theron… GRABBING THE SHOVEL AND HOISTING THERON UP WITH AN OVER-THE-SHOULDER HANGMAN’S CHOKE!!!!!!!! THERON BEING STRANGLED OVER DARKANE’S SHOULDER, WITH THE HANDLE OF THE SHOVEL BEING DRIVEN INTO HIS WINDPIPE!!!! THERON’S LIMBS FLAILING, THE REFEREE URGING TO SUBMIT!!!! THERON HAS NOWHERE TO GO — BUT HE RAKES THE EYES!!! HE JAMS HIS FINGERS INTO THE EYES OF THE GRAVE WORM ONCE AGAIN, ALLOWING HIMSELF THE QUARTER THAT HE NEEDS TO ESCAPE THE HANGMAN’S CHOKE! Darkane is cursing and yelling in pain, you can tell he may have been lacerated by that, Theron snatches the shovel out of Darkane’s hands before USING IT TO DELIVER THE KING’S REQUIEM!!!!!!!!! SNAPPING THE SHOVEL IN HALF ACROSS THE THROAT OF DARKANE, WITH THE SHOVEL ASSISTED SWINGING REVERSE STO!!!!!! HE GOT IT!!! NOBODY AROUND IN SIGHT TO STOP THE PIN!!!! HOOK OF BOTH LEGS!!!

Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

Flannery McCoy: KICK OUT AT TWO!!! THERON SLAPS THE CANVAS OUT OF FRUSTRATION! HE’S CLUELESS AS TO HOW DARKANE COULD HAVE POSSIBLY KICKED OUT OF THAT, AND I DON’T BLAME HIM! THAT SHOULD HAVE FINISHED THIS THING!

Stew-O: The self-professed God Emperor is back up, wiping the remnants of blood from his nose, holding his pounding eardrum and pacing back and forth, looking down at the challenger with a scowl. Darkane has been a thorn in his side all season long, he has been the nuisance that Theron has not been able to rid himself of, and now it looks like Theron is planning on doing JUST THAT! THERON DOING THE ‘THROAT SLICE’ TAUNT, BEFORE DRAGGING THE DEAD WEIGHT OF DARKANE UP FROM THE MAT, AND HOSTING HIM UPSIDE DOWN FOR THE TOMBSTONE PILEDRIVER!!!! BUT DARKANE IS SHIFTING! HE’S PUTTING ON A FIGHT! HE USING AS MUCH OF HIS OWN BODY WEIGHT AGAINST THERON AS POSSIBLE, UNTIL BOTH MEN BACKPEDAL INTO THE ROPES AND FLIP OVER ONTO THE APRON………… WITH THERON THIS TIME UPSIDE DOWN!!!!!!!!! OVER DARKANE’S SHOULDER, IN HIS EMBRACE!!!!!! LORD HAVE MERCY!!!!!!!!!!!!

Flannery McCoy: FUCK!!!

Stew-O: OVER-THE-SHOULDER PILEDRIVER ON THE APRON FROM DARKANE!!!!!!!! JUMPING “SIX FEET UNDER” SENDS THERON SKULL-FIRST INTO THE APRON, AND COLLAPSING IN A HEAP DOWN AT RINGSIDE!!!!

Crowd: HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT!

Flannery McCoy: DARKANE DUSTS HIS HANDS OFF, PROUD OF HIS OWN HANDIWORK, AND WHILE HE TAKES THE TIME TO DRAG THE DEAD WEIGHT OF THERON BACK INTO THE RING, LET’S GET ANOTHER LOOK AT THAT UNMERCIFUL COLLISION!

( REPLAY: Darkane jumps up from the apron and crashes Theron Nikolas skull first into the sharp edge of the ring apron with an over-the-shoulder jumping sitout piledriver. It accentuates the anguish on Theron’s face after hitting the ringside floor. )

( We return back in the ring, where after a moment Darkane has managed to drag Theron Nikolas’ dead weight away from the ropes and cover him. )

Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

Stew-O: WAIT A SECOND WAIT A SECOND! DEDEDE HOISTS DARKANE OFF OF THERON NIKOLAS WITH A DOUBLE ARM UNDERHOOK, ALLOWING THERON TO ROLL OUT OF THE RING! NOW DEDEDE PLANTS DARKANE WITH THE BUTTERFLY EFFECT SUPLEX! DELIVERS IT, AND ROLLS THROUGH IT AGAIN, CONVERTING INTO THE FOLLOW UP MK DRIVER!!!!!!!! LIFTING DOUBLE UNDERHOOK BRAINBUSTER TO SECURE HIS 7TH WORLD TITLE!!!!!!!

Flannery McCoy: Not so fast! Darkane is fighting it! Sending punches into those sore ribs of DDDs! Darkane now counters with a back body drop sending him over the ropes and out of the ring! But DEDEDE sticks the landing on the apron in a cat-like manner and immediately rushes up to the top turnbuckle while Darkane limps towards the center of the ring loosening up the cobwebs… and an unaware Darkane turns over to DEDEDE WHO LEAPS OFF FROM THE TOP TURNBUCKLE WITH A STANDING HIGH FLY FLOW!!!! BUT DARKANE MANAGES TO CATCH DDD COMING DOWN IN HIS ARMS! ROLLING THROUGH IT! AND HOSTING THE BODY OF THE GAWD IN HIS ARMS, LOOKING FOR A FALLAWAY SUPLEX OUT OF THE RING!!!! HE DELIVERS IT!!!! CHUCKING MR. DEDEDE OVER THE ROPES TO THE OUTSIDE —

Stew-O: AND DEDEDE COMING DOWN IN MID-AIR DELIVERS A DIVING CORKSCREW CROSSBODY TO THERON NIKOLAS, TAKING THERON BACK DOWN!!! RIDICULOUS!!!! DDD DELIVERED THAT FLAWLESSLY AND NOW SPRINTS BACK INTO THE RING!

MEANWHILE JAMIE O’HARA HAS COME TO A FULL RECOVERY, AND O’HARA CHARGES INTO THE RING TO BLAST DARKANE IN THE CHEST WITH A JOHN WOO DROPKICK! DARKANE STUMBLING BACK INTO THE MIDDLE ROPE, DEDEDE WITH A ROLLING BACKFIST ON O’HARA! DUCKED BY O’HARA, DARKANE REBOUNDS OFF THE MIDDLE ROPE WITH ANOTHER PENDULUM LARIAT INITIATED BY JAMIES DROPKICK, TURNING DDD INSIDE OUT!!! O’HARA WITH THE STRAIGHT JACKET DOUBLE-WRIST LOCK FROM BEHIND ON DARKANE!!!!! STARDUST BREAKER!!!!!!! RIPCORD KNEE SENDING DARKANE CRUMPLING TO THE FLOOR!!!!!!! WHAT A FUCKING SEQUENCE!!!! WHAT A FUCKING FINISH!!!!!!! O’HARA DROPS OVER DARKANE TO FINISH THIS!!!!

THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

Flannery McCoy: DARKANE WITH THE SHOULDER UP!!! AT 2 AND 7/8THS!!!!

Stew-O: (chuckling) :whew: WOW! WHAT CAN YOU EVEN SAY?

Flannery McCoy: I’M LITERALLY SHAKING!

Stew-O: No quarter!!! NO QUARTER!!! NO QUARTER FOR ANY ONE PERSON IN THIS MATCH! THE AVERAGE DO NOT SURVIVE HERE, THEY DO NOT WITHSTAND WHAT THESE MEN ARE UNLEASHING, AND WE ARE WITNESSING THAT ON DISPLAY, HERE IN THE MECCA!

Flannery McCoy: Jamie O’Hara spots DDD recovering by way of the ring ropes. DDD has actually been watching him the entire time, and O’Hara challenges DDD to approach him and engage with him. DDD charges out of the ropes at O’Hara in a mad dash! O’Hara clocks him across the jaw with an elbow! Shoot kick! Forearm! Rolling backhand! Spin kick to the midsection! Lifting heel kick right into the face of the Chairman as he’s doubled over! O’Hara grabs DDD by the nape of the neck, but DDD overpowers him, sending O’Hara into the ropes and charging at him with a running knee SLAMMING right into the ribs of O’Hara just before he can rebound off the ropes! DDD firing off with several right hands! Jamie trying to protect his face from those exposed closed fists, and DDD begins hammering down blows, brutally clubbing shots over the back of the head and right into the spine! DDD drags O’Hara by the arm away from the ropes and sends him CLEAR ACROSS THE RING WITH A HARD IRISH WHIP! Jamie’s body crashes into the corner and lands on the mat with a thud!

Stew-O: Mr. DEDEDE taking some time to dance around the ring and get the crowd on his side! He turns over to Darkane who is somehow, someway returning to a vertical base after taking the Stardust Breaker at full force just moments earlier! Completely split open bottom lip and all! And DDD CATCHES DARKANE RIGHT IN THE MOUTH WITH A BIG TIME ENZUIGIRI! Darkane stumbles forward and lands sternum first over the middle rope, and DDD springs over the ropes where Darkane rests, delivering a SPRINGBOARD ELBOW DROP down to ringside! That elbow clocks Darkane right across the temple, and DDD slides back into the ring before taking O’Hara up onto his shoulder and attempting a RUNNING SNAKE EYES INTO THE CORNER! O’HARA MANAGES TO SLITHER DOWN DDD’S BACK BEFORE HE CAN CLEAR THE RING, AND COUNTERS WITH THE STRAIGHT JACKET HOLD!!!! STARDUST BREAKER TO FINISH MR. DEDEDE OFF!!!!!!!!!!!

Flannery McCoy: NOBODY HOME! DDD DUCKS UNDER THE RIPCORD KNEE AND COUNTERS WITH THE ROLL UP! BUT BEFORE THE REFEREE CAN SO MUCH AS DROP TO THE MAT, JAMIE ROLLS THROUGH THE ROLL UP AND COUNTERS WITH A ROLLING CORKSCREW GAMENGIRI!!! That sends DDD rolling away from O’Hara holding his skull following that precise kick! DDD and O’Hara recover at the same pace, and O’Hara lights DDD up with a FLURRY OF MACHINE GUN BACKHAND CHOPS! INCINERATING THE GAWD’S CHEST WITH THOSE UNMERCIFUL CHOPS! O’Hara rebounds off the ropes behind him, and is immediately cut off by a JUMPING SHOULDER BLOCK FROM DDD! O’HARA SCRAMBLES BACK UP, AND TAKEN DOWN BY ANOTHER JUMPING SHOULDER BLOCK. DARKANE CHARGES OVER TO DDD, AND DDD TAKES DARKANE DOWN WITH A JUMPING BACK ELBOW TO THE BRIDGE OF THE NOSE… BEFORE KIPPING BACK UP TO HIS FEET! O’HARA COMES AFTER DDD, AND DDD FLATTENS JAMIE O’HARA WITH A SPINEBUSTER!!!! BEFORE STANDING OVER O’HARA, LOOKING OUT INTO THE SEA OF HUMANITY!!! ARE WE GOING TO SEE IT STEW????

Stew-O: I THINK WE CERTAINLY ARE……. DDD SLOWLY RIPPING OFF THE ELBOW PAD, IN A FAMILIAR “GAWD” FASHION, BEFORE TOSSING IT INTO THE AUDIENCE! HE REBOUNDS OFF OF THE ROPES, JUMPS OVER O’HARA, AND SLIDES RIGHT BACK ACROSS THE RING WITH GRACE AND POISE, TO DELIVER THE MOST ELECTRIFYING MOVE IN EAW HISTORY! THE BOTTOMLESS ELBOW!!!!!

Flannery McCoy: HE DOESN’T GET IT!!! O’HARA TAKES DDD OFF OF HIS FEET WITH THE ROLLING CALF CRUSHER TRANSITION– BUT SWITCHES GEARS, INSTEAD APPLYING THE ROLLING KNEE BAR!!!

Stew-O: DDD SCREAMING IN PAIN! PERHAPS IT WAS A MISTAKE ON HIS PART TO GO FOR THE THEATRICS, AND THAT MISTAKE MAY VERY WELL COST HIM! JAMIE O’HARA HAS THE KNEE BAR SYNCHED IN TIGHT! HIS OWN LEGS WRAPPED AROUND DDDS FOR GOOD MEASURE, AND HE IS TEARING AWAY, PUTTING EVERYTHING BEHIND SPLITTING WHATEVER TENDONS ARE IN THAT KNEE!!!!

( DEDEDE IS TEARING AT HIS HAIR, STRUGGLING TO KEEP HIS WITS ABOUT HIM. )

Flannery McCoy: DDD DRAGGING THE WEIGHT OF HIS SMALLER OPPONENT ACROSS THE RING! BUT AT WHAT COST?!

Stew-O: BUT EVERY SECOND COMES WITH A MASSIVE PRICE TAG FLANNERY! EVERY SECOND THAT PASSES FEELS LIKE AN ETERNITY WHILE IN THAT HOLD!!! DDD HAS A HAND OUT, IT’S OBVIOUS THE OPTION OF GIVING IN IS CLEARLY IN HIS HEAD! HE WILL NOT LAST MUCH LONGER! O’HARA SCREAMING FOR HIM TO TAP …………….. NO WAY!!! NO WAY!!! — DEDEDE TAPS OUT!!!!!! MR. DEDEDE SUBMITS!!!!!!!

Stew-O: BUT HIS HAND DOESN’T HIT THE MAT! HIS HAND IS CAUGHT ON THE WAY DOWN!!! THERON NIKOLAS REACHES INTO THE RING FROM RINGSIDE, AND STOPS DEDEDE FROM TAPPING OUT, SAVING HIS OWN CHAMPIONSHIP IN THE PROCESS! YOU CAN TELL PURE INSTINCT IS WHAT BROUGHT THERON OUT OF THE STUPOR HE WAS IN, JUST IN THE NICK OF TIME, IN THE 11TH HOUR! THE AWC DRAGS DDD BY BOTH WRISTS, TRYING WITH ALL OF HIS MIGHT TO DRAG HIM OUT OF THE RING, MUCH TO THE CHAGRIN OF JAMIE O’HARA! THERON AND JAMIE ARE NOW PLAYING TUG-O-WAR OVER DDD’S BODY! NOW THERON JUMPS UP TO THE APRON, O’HARA KNOCKS HIM RIGHT OFF WITH A JUMPING FOREARM! — DEVIL MAY CRY!!!!!!!!!!!!! SPEAR TO THE SPINE OF JAMIE O’HARA BY DARKANE!!!! OFF THE DISTRACTION!!! DARKANE DRAGS O’HARA AWAY FROM THE ROPES WITH A SENSE OF URGENCY, AND HOOKS BOTH LEGS!

Stew-O: KICK OUT BY O’HARA!!!

Flannery McCoy: HOW??? HOW???

Stew-O: THAT ATTACK HAS SEALED CHAMPIONSHIPS, MAIN EVENTS AND MARQUEE MATCHES FOR THIS MAN, BUT IT WASN’T ENOUGH TONIGHT AGAINST THE ASCENDED MASTER! Darkane looks far from discouraged, he sniffs and wipes his nose with a bloody cheeky grin before surveying the scene and watching Mr. DEDEDE limp over to the turnbuckle. Darkane can see Theron Nikolas attempting to enter the ring from the corner of his eye, and he delivers a running shoulder bump sending Theron FLYING OFF OF THE APRON AND CRASHING INTO THE BARRICADE! His attention now turned to DDD! Darkane jogs across the ring and delivers a SPIT KNOCKING RUNNING HAYMAKER TO THE EAW CHAIRMAN! GOD WHAT A SHOT! You can see the beads of sweat flying off of DDD’s body to the ringside floor just from that freight train-like impact! That blow was SO vicious, SO violent, that it has DDD elevated on the turnbuckle, nearly sprawled out in a heap! That comes to the benefit of Darkane, as he looks to straighten DDD up, all while Theron Nikolas who has recovered so quickly now climbs up that exact same turnbuckle, creating a high risk situation there above the ring! Darkane manages to pull DDD off the turnbuckle, setting him on his shoulders in a seated position and carrying him possibly for an ELECTRIC CHAIR DRIVER!!!

Flannery McCoy: DDD clubs down a couple of weak blows on the head of Darkane! That doesn’t look like it’s fazing him all that much! LOOK AT THIS! THERON NIKOLAS LEAPS OFF THE TURNBUCKLE AND LANDS ON DDDS BACK LIKE A MONKEY, AND SLAPS IN THE BODY-SCISSORS SLEEPER HOLD SUBMISSION!!!! THERON CHOKING DDD OUT WHILE BOTH MEN’S BODIES ARE BEING SUSPENDED ABOVE THE RING BY DARKANE! HOW IN THE WORLD IS DARKANE ABLE TO MANAGE THE WEIGHT OF BOTH OF THESE ELITISTS ON HIS SHOULDERS??? —

Stew-O: LOOK OUT LOOK OUT LOOK OUT!!! SLINGBLADE FROM O’HARA SENDS DARKANE OFF OF HIS FEET!!! AND DDD AND THERON COME TUMBLING DOWN ALONG WITH HIM!!!!

Flannery McCoy: OH MY GOSH, THERON STILL HAS THE SLEEPER HOLD APPLIED!!!! DDD’S FADING!!! JAMIE KNOWS IT!!! THE REFEREE IS HOLDING OUT DDDS HAND, WHILE O’HARA IS PAINSTAKINGLY SCRATCHING, CLAWING HIMSELF BACK UP TO A VERTICAL BASE! O’HARA, SUCKING WIND, DIGS INTO HIS CORE NOW TO DEADLIFT BOTH THE GOD-EMPEROR THERON NIKOLAS AND MR. DEDEDE BACK UP TO A STANDING BASE! THE REFEREE IS LOOKING INTO DDD’S EYES!!!! THERE’S NOTHING THERE!!!! THE OFFICIAL IS READY TO CALL FOR THE BELL!!!

Stew-O: BANG!!!!!! BANG!!!!!!! STARDUST BREAKER!!!!

Flannery McCoy: THERON IS RIPCORDED! BUT HE MOVES OUT OF THE WAY!!!! THE KNEE SMASHES INTO MR. DEDEDE’S FACE!!!! AFTER THREE UNSUCCESSFUL TRIES, JAMIE O’HARA FINALLY MANAGES TO BLAST DDD WITH THE INADVERTENT RIPCORD KNEE!

Stew-O: KING’S REQUIEM ON O’HARA!!!!! FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER, THERON NIKOLAS HAS MANAGED TO DELIVER THE KING’S REQUIEM TO JAMIE O’HARA!!!! AND HE EXPENDS EVERYTHING HE HAS TO ROLL JAMIE O’HARA OVER, FOLLOWING THE SWINGING REVERSE STO! DEDEDE UNRESPONSIVE! DARKANE UNAWARE! HOOK OF THE KNEE PAD!LAST GASP!!!

Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

( A roar is heard through the capacity audience of Mercedes Benz Stadium. )

Stew-O: JAMIE!!!!! KICKS!!!!!! OUT!!!!!!

( Fear enters Theron’s eyes. )

Stew-O: I’VE GOT GOOSEBUMPS!!! TWO DDD SPEARS! DEVIL MAY CRY! PILEDRIVER INTO THE STAIRS! AND THE KING’S REQUIEM! AND STILL NOT ENOUGH, NOT ENOUGH TO FINISH THE ASCENDED MASTER! NOT ON THIS FATEFUL DAY!

( Theron Nikolas is on his knees, screaming in frustration, eyes wide, face screwed up in bewilderment, in disbelief of what just occurred. )

Stew-O: PERHAPS THE GOD-EMPEROR IS COMING TO LEARN A THING OR TWO ABOUT DESTINY! DESTINY IS NOT AT THE CONTROL OR THE BEHEST OF ANY MORTAL MAN! YOU CANNOT CHANGE FATE, AND IT MAY VERY WELL BE FATE THAT IS KEEPING JAMIE O’HARA GOING WHEN NOTHING ELSE SHOULD!

Flannery McCoy: Theron is literally slapping sense into his own head, himself back into this match! You could tell he was just on the verge of a mental collapse! THE CROWD COMING ALIVE NOW! THERON REMAINS UNSUSPECTING TO WHAT’S BEHIND HIM!!!! DARKANE!!! DARKANE APPROACHING THE GOD-EMPEROR!!! WATCH YOUR BACK! —

Stew-O: GRAND SLAM!!!!!! GRAND SLAM!!!!!! MR. DEDEDE SPRINGS UP AT THE LAST SECOND, AND PLANTS DARKANE WITH A THUNDEROUS ROCK BOTTOM!!!!!!!

( DEDEDE is on one knee, hair covering his eyes, and he and Theron maintain tense eye contact. DDD eventually drags himself back up to his feet, and he and Theron slowly move towards each other. )

Flannery McCoy: The tension is palpable Stew! You can see the bad blood that these men have for each other in their eyes! At this point, there is no love to be lost between Mr. DEDEDE and Theron Nikolas! And-

Stew-O: Wait a second wait a second! DEDEDE, he’s, he’s smiling! And so is Theron!

Flannery McCoy: You don’t think-

Stew-O: THEY ARE! DEDEDE AND THERON IMMEDIATELY SURROUND JAMIE O’HARA, AND BEGIN STOMPING THE EVER LOVING HELL OUT OF THE DEFENSELESS GRAND RAMPAGE WINNER!!! THIS AUDIENCE JUST COMPLETELY LOATHING WHAT THEY’RE SEEING! JAMIE IS BEING TREATED LIKE A DOORMAT, HE IS ABSORBING PUNCHES, FOREARMS TO THE VISIBLY BRUISED RIBS, STOMPS TO THE HEAD, STOMPS TO THE FACE! AND THERON DIRECTING TRAFFIC, JUST AS HE WOULD DURING THE 1% DAYS, AS THESE TWO DELIVER A BEAT DOWN SHADES OF THE 2018 DRAFT! THERON SENDING JAMIE FACE FIRST INTO A BIG BOOT FROM DDD!

Flannery McCoy: This is infuriating to watch! It gives me all sorts of PTSD flashbacks of all of the havoc The 1% used to wreak! DDD scrapes O’Hara off of the floor, and now he’s got O’Hara held in a full nelson, while Theron just tees away, battering his torso with punches! Getting into Jamie’s face and hurling abuse! DDD pulls Darkane up from the canvas, and DDD whips him into the ropes, allowing THERON TO SEND DARKANE OUT OF THE RING COURTESY OF A BICYCLE KNEE!!! THAT HAS DARKANE PLOPPING DOWN TO THE FLOOR IN FRONT OF US IN A HEAP!

Stew-O: I really hate to say it, but it’s smart strategy! They are incapacitating the rest of the competition and are leaving this match to be decided among one another! DDD and Theron despite all of their differences are still two halves of the same coin, and these two men are looking to CASH IN, AS THERON AND DDD BOTH USE ALL OF THEIR STRENGTH TO SEND JAMIE O’HARA SMASHING INTO THE RING POST, SHOULDER FIRST!!!!!! SHOULDER SEPARATING COLLISION INTO THE STEEL!

( Theron and DDD exchange brief words, and Theron Nikolas exits the ring – only to begin clearing the Dynasty announce table. )

Flannery McCoy: WHAT ARE THESE TWO PLANNING?

Stew-O: I don’t know, but I’m getting the hell out of dodge! Theron goes right back down to Darkane – or whatever remains of Darkane, and BASHES HIM FACE FIRST INTO THE ANNOUNCE TABLE! NO! DARKANE STOPS HIMSELF! DARKANE FIRES BACK! RIGHT FROM DARKANE! ANOTHER RIGHT HAND! A THIRD! FOURTH! FIF- CUTS HIM OFF! THERON CUTS HIM OFF WITH A KNEE TO THE MIDSECTION! DARKANE RESPONDS WITH A CACTUS CLOTHESLINE! THERON CUTS HIM OFF WITH A JUMPING SUPERKICK!!! HE REELS DARKANE BACK IN ! VERY EUROPEAN UPPERCUT!!! THAT SENDS DARKANE FLOPPING OVER OUR ANNOUNCE TABLE!!! ….. OH NO!!!! … OH NO!!!!

( Mr. DEDEDE is seen climbing the turnbuckle from inside the ring. )

Flannery McCoy: THERON EGGING DDD ON! STRAIGHTENING UP DARKANE FLAT ON HIS BACK, LAID OUT OVER OUR TABLE! FOR THE LOVE OF GOD RYAN YOU DON’T HAVE TO DO THIS! STOP THIS!

Stew-O: FOR THE LOVE OF GOD!!!!! CORKSCREW!!!!!!!!!!! NORTH!!!!!!!!! STAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!

Flannery McCoy: OH MY GOOOOOOOOOOOOOD!!!!!!!!!

Stew-O: SOOOOOARING ACROSS RINGSIDE, AND OBLITERATING DARKANE WITH THE CORKSCREW SHOOTING STAR PRESS THROUGH THE ANNOUNCE DESK, FROM THE RING!!!!!!!

Flannery McCoy: UNREAL! UNREAL!

( Theron is clapping up a storm while Mr. DEDEDE holds his midsection and recovers down on all fours. )

Flannery McCoy: LOW-PE SUICIDA!!! SUICIDE DIVE BELOW THE MIDDLE ROPE FROM JAMIE O’HARA!!!!

Stew-O: THERON COUNTERS WITH THE EUROPEAN UPPERCUT!!! BRILLIANT!!! ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT SAVE ON THE PART OF THE CHAMPION! AND NOW HE SENDS JAMIE O’HARA DOWN TO THE RINGSIDE FLOOR WITH A VICIOUS POWERBOMB!!!! ROLLS JAMIE BACK!!!! STANDING KNEELIFT SUBMISSION!!!! JAMIE O’HARA HAVING HIS ACL TORN APART BY THE SELF-PROFESSED GOD EMPEROR HERE AT RINGSIDE! —

Flannery McCoy: AND DDD JOINS IN!!!! METH LOCK VERSION II!!!!! METH LOCK II APPLIED ON THE HELPLESS JAMIE O’HARA!!!! KNEELING DRAGON SLEEPER BY DDD, KNEELIFT SUBMISSION BY NIKOLAS, AND NOWHERE TO GO FOR O’HARA!!! HE IS BEING FOLDED UP LIKE AN ACCORDION, THEY’RE GOING TO BREAK HIM IN HALF!!!

Stew-O: JAMIE O’HARA CAN ONLY SCREAM IN SHEER ANGUISH, THERE IS NO OPTION TO SUBMIT, THERE IS NO REQUIREMENT FOR DDD AND THERON TO RELENT! O’HARA, TRYING AS HE MIGHT TO BATTER HIS FISTS AND BREAK DDDS GRIP, IS LEFT WITH NO OPTION OTHER THAN PRAY FOR MERCY THAT WILL NOT BE GIVEN! PRAY TO THE HEAVENS THAT WILL NOT ANSWER HIM! PRAY FOR SOME FORM OF HOPE THAT IS NOT THERE! AS HE ENDURES THE MOST EXCRUCIATING EXPERIENCE PERHAPS OF HIS LIFE!

*CRACK*

Flannery McCoy: WHAT THE HELL?????

( Mr. DEDEDE drops to the floor, following the Knife Edged Elbow to the back of his head from Theron. )

Stew-O: I DON’T KNOW WHAT MADE DEDEDE THINK THIS WASN’T COMING SOONER OR LATER! FOR THE SECOND TIME, THERON NIKOLAS HAS DECIDED TO TERMINATE AN ALLIANCE BETWEEN HIMSELF AND MR. DEDEDE! AND I MUST SAY, THERE MAY NOT BE A MORE OPPORTUNE MOMENT TO DO SO, BECAUSE THIS MATCH IS HIS FOR THE SPOILS!

Flannery McCoy: DEDEDE is leaned over the LED apron board, and Theron begins slamming boots into the side of DDD’s face! Theron has both wrists locked, and begins stomping repeated blows into DDD’s head as it’s pressed up against the LED apron boards! No relent! No compassion! Nothing more than venom inspired by the greed of a God Emperor! He sends DDD back into the ring!

Stew-O: AND THERON ENTERS…. BUT LOOK WHAT’S IN HIS HANDS……..

( Theron Nikolas stands in the ring holding the unused Equalizer from earlier in the match. )

Flannery McCoy: Come on! Come on! This is becoming way too much!

Stew-O: THERON BATTERING UP, USING THE WEAPON THAT HAS ENDED CAREERS, DESTROYED LIVES! IT PUT DARKANE ON THE SHELF FOR MONTHS! IT COST JAMIE O’HARA HALF A SEASON OF HIS CAREER! OF HIS PRIME! AND UNFORTUNATELY FOR MR. DEDEDE, KARMA IS AN EVEN MORE INSIDIOUS BEAST THAN GAWDZILLA IS, AND IT IS REARING ITS UGLY HEAD IN HIS DIRECTION!!!!

Theron Nikolas (off-mic): EVEN GAWDS MUST KNEEL.

Stew-O: THERON COCKS BACK!!!!!!!! FUCKING HELL!!!!!! FUCKING HELL!!!!!!! EQUALIZERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!! SMASHED OVER THE SKULL OF MR. DEDEDE!!!!!!!!! THUMBTACKS, SHARDS OF GLASS, AND NAILS GO POURING OUT OF THAT SINISTER WEAPON!!!!

( Mr. DEDEDE lays in a pool of his own blood, eyes wide open and rapidly shaking. )

Flannery McCoy: THERON KNEELS OVER THE FALLEN GAWD WITH NO OTHER ELITIST IN SIGHT. ONE HAND PLACED OVER HIS CHEST, AS DDD CHOKES ON HIS OWN BLOOD. THE REFEREE GAWKS IN DISBELIEF, AND SLIDES TO THE MAT AS BOTH SHOULDERS ARE DOWN.

Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

Stew-O: JAMIE O’HARA!!!!!! FROM BEHIND AT THE LAST SECOND,RIPS THERON UP FROM THE FLOOR AS THE REFEREES HAND COMES DOWN!!!!! STRAIGHTJACKET DOUBLE WRIST-LOCK! LOOKING FOR THE STARDUST BREAKER ONE MORE TIME!!!!

Flannery McCoy: HOW??? HOW IS HE MOVING??? HOW IS HE GOING??? AFTER ALL HE’S BEEN THROUGH!

Stew-O: HE IS A MAN MOVED BY FATE, THAT’S HOW! BUT HE’S FAR FROM OUT OF THE WOODS YET FLANNERY! THERON IS FIGHTING THE STARDUST BREAKER, REFUSING TO BE TURNED AROUND! IT IS A STRUGGLE HERE IN FRONT OF THESE 77,000 FANS WAITING AT THE EDGE OF THEIR SEATS! THERON SENDING BACK LIMP ELBOWS TO THE TORSO! NOW HE SLINGS JAMIE FORWARD! JAMIE COMBAT ROLLS FORWARD, AND CLOCKS THERON OVER THE HEAD WITH A PELE KICK! THERON DAZED, STAGGERING! O’HARA COMES RIGHT BACK AT HIM — SUPERKICK BY THERON!!! O’HARA INTERCEPTS THE LEG!!! DRAGON SCREW LEG WHIP, SENDING THERON ROLLING AROUND CLUTCHING HIS RIGHT KNEE! THAT IS ONE OF THE MOST EFFECTIVE LOWER BODY ATTACKS IN THE GAME, AND IT COULD VERY WELL BE THE EXACT OPENING O’HARA NEEDS TO GET BACK INTO THIS!

Flannery McCoy: Theron painstakingly makes his return to a vertical base! He’s taken to his knees with a basement dropkick to the bad leg by Jamie! FOLLOW UP THRUST TIGER KNEE ACROSS THE JAW OF THE ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION! SCISSORS STOMP FROM JAMIE!! AND NOW O’HARA HOISTS THE CHAMPION UP FROM THE FLOOR!!! SINGLE UNDERHOOK BRAINBUSTER!!!!!! NAILS IT, SPLITTING THERON’S SKULL!!!!

Stew-O: O’HARA ISN’T FINISHED, HE KNOWS HE WILL HAVE TO PULL OUT ALL OF THE STOPS TO ACHIEVE HIS GOAL! TO REALIZE HIS DREAM! TO ACCOMPLISH WHAT EVERY WRESTLER IN THE WORLD COULD ONLY HOPE IN THEIR WILDEST DREAMS TO ACCOMPLISH! LEAVING THE MAIN EVENT OF PAIN FOR PRIDE VICTORIOUS! O’HARA DRAGS HIMSELF UP THE TURNBUCKLE, ONE HAND HOLDING HIS RIBS, GRIMACING AND WINCING IN PAIN JUST MAKING THE ARDUOUS JOURNEY…. AND HE REACHES HIS DESTINATION, PERCHED UP TOP HIGH ABOVE THE RING!!!! GENKI CANNON ONCE AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!

Flannery McCoy: NO! BEFORE JAMIE LEAPS OFF, THERON FINDS AN INEXPLICABLE SOURCE OF ENERGY WITHIN HIS RESERVES, AND HE SPRINTS UP TO HIS FEET MUCH TO JAMIE’S DISMAY! WAIT A MINUTE LOOK WHO IT IS!!!

Stew-O: IT’S DARKANE!!! DARKANE HAS COME BACK TO LIFE!!!! CLOBBERING THERON NIKOLAS WITH A ROLLING LARIAT, TAKING HIM BACK DOWN! THESE FANS ARE LOSING IT FOR THE REEMERGENCE OF DARKANE!

T-BONE SUPLEX FROM THE TOP ROPE!!!!

Stew-O: NOT SO FAST, O’HARA IS BATTLING! HE’S SENDING PUNCHES TO THE MIDSECTION! HE DELIVERS A HEADBUTT IN RESPONSE! THESE TWO MEN ARE DUKING IT OUT SUSPENDED IN NO MAN’S LAND! JAMIE IS NOW BALANCING HIMSELF ON THE TOP OF THE LED RINGPOST, WHILE DARKANE IS STANDING ON THE TOP ROPE! AND THEY’RE TRADING HOCKEY STYLE BLOWS! FIGHTING WITH THE WORLD STANDING AT ATTENTION!

Flannery McCoy: It has become a slugfest! Blows ringing back and forth! O’HARA! DARKANE! O’HARA! DARKANE! … JAMIE’S WOBBLING, THAT ONE ACROSS THE BRUISE ON HIS FACE HAS JAMIE’S EQUILIBRIUM OFF! HE’S ABOUT TO PLUNGE TO HIS DEMISE AT RINGSIDE!!!

( Darkane, O’Hara, Theron collapse in a heap. Mr. DEDEDE still lays motionless in a pool of his own blood, being evaluated by another official. The first still moment of the entire match. )

Flannery McCoy: DARKANE HAS REGAINED CONTROL OF THIS MATCH, BUT IT’S NOT ENOUGH TO BE IN THE DRIVER’S SEAT, THE DESTINATION MATTERS MORE THAN ANYTHING!

Stew-O: It is taking EVERYTHING in Darkane’s power to move a single muscle! These men are mentally, physically and emotionally exhausted, and Darkane is running completely on fumes – in spite of unspeakable damage! He is having to play through otherworldly pain in order to make a single movement! But he’s managed to muster up just enough to get to the corner, and remain in a crouched over position, watching the Answers World Champion and the Grand Rampage winner use each other as props in order to rise to their feet! Darkane licking his lips, SALIVATING! HE TAKES OFF!!!!! CHARGING ACROSS THE RING!!!!!!! DEVIL!!!!!!!! MAY!!!!!!!! CRY!!!!!!!!

( Jamie O’Hara is on his knees, surrounded in wreckage, the sole conscious Elitist. )

Stew-O: O’HARA IS SHAKING! EVERY VEIN PROTRUDING FROM HIS NECK! HEAD AND FACE BEET RED! SWEAT AND BRUISES COVERING HIS BODY! BUT HE FEELS NO PAIN! ADRENALINE IS AT AN ALL TIME FUCKING HIGH, AND HE IS GOING TO FINISH THIS MOTHERFUCKER FOR GOOD ONCE AND FOR ALL!!!! O’HARA LOWERS BOTH OF HIS KNEE PADS, AND DRAGS THERON UP FROM THE FLOOR TO HIS KNEES WITH THE DOUBLE WRIST CLUTCH! STANDING OVER THERON WITH NOT A SHRED OF MERCY IN HIS EYES!

Flannery McCoy: THE OFFICIAL TURNS TO THE TIME KEEPER!!!!!!!! JAMIE O’HARA IS CHAMPION ONCE AGAIN!!!!!

( Mercedes Benz Stadium jumps up to their feet in shockwave of excitement. The referee is startled before he gets a chance to call for the bell. )

Stew-O: SPEEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

( Mr. DEDEDE collapses over Theron Nikolas after delivering the Spear on Jamie O’Hara. )

Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONEEEE!!!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

( DING! DING! DING! )

( “Talk Up” by Drake and Jay-Z hits. )

Flannery McCoy: THIS ISN’T REAL! THERE IS NO WAY THIS IS POSSIBLY REAL! THAT THIS IS ACTUALLY HAPPENING!

Stephie Love: HERE IS YOUR WINNER AND THE NEEEEEWWWWW ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION… MMMISSTEEEEEERRR DEEEEE DEEEEEEE DEEEEEE!!!!!

Stew-O: FROM THE RUBBLE, FROM THE FIRES OF HELL, FROM THE BLINK OF OBLIVION, GAWDZILLA EMERGES – TATTERED, WARTORN, BUT FOR THE 7TH TIME, HE EMERGES WORLD CHAMPION!!!!

( Mr. DEDEDE is on his knees, entire torso soaked in blood, shard of glass piercing his eyelid and a gruesome flesh-exposed gash across his head. The official walks over to him and places the Answers World Championship in his hands. )

Flannery McCoy: HE WAS KILLED! HE WAS COMPLETELY DESTROYED! GASPING FOR AIR! CHOKING ON HIS OWN BLOOD! AND NOW HE’S THE FUCKING ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION!

( DEDEDE uses the referee to drag himself to his feet, and he throws the referee out of his ring before holding up the Answers World Championship with both hands, and leaning over the ropes with a wicked tongue-bearing grin. We see a highlight reel recap of the most pivotal moments during the entire match, including a different angle of the ending where Mr. DEDEDE drags himself up from the sea of thumbtacks, shards of glass, and his own blood, with a demonic scowl on his face, before charging forward and drilling through Jamie O’Hara with the last gasp spear. )

Stew-O: AT THE VERY TAIL END OF, PERSONALLY SPEAKING, THE GREATEST MATCH I HAVE EVER HAD THE PRIVILEGE TO CALL IN MY CAREER – WE WITNESSED THE MOST CLUTCH MOMENT IN THE HISTORY OF PAIN FOR PRIDE! THERE IS NO FATHOMABLE WAY TO UNDERSTATE WHAT JUST TOOK PLACE!

Flannery McCoy: I’m truly speechless!

( Jamie O’Hara is seen sitting on the ringside floor holding his deep purple bruised midsection with a completely deflated look about him. Darkane and Theron Nikolas remain unresponsive in the ring. )

Stew-O: DISAPPOINTMENT AND HEARTBREAK IS SURE TO ENSUE FROM THE OTHER COMPETITORS, BUT TO O’HARA, NIKOLAS AND DARKANE, HATS OFF. TRULY, THESE THREE MEN ARE BONAFIDE WORLD CHAMPIONS ON ANY BRAND, IN ANY ERA OF THIS SPORT.

( Mr. DEDEDE climbs up to the top turnbuckle and holds up the Answers World Championship with one hand, and the corna horns with the other, as confetti falls from the ceiling and pyro blast off from the stage and rocket across the inside of the stadium. A torrent of pyro explodes from the roof of Mercedes Benz Stadium, and a fourth-of-july calibre cadre of fireworks explode high over the stadium, and all over downtown Atlanta in a ceaseless array. )

Stew-O: BUT THE LEGEND WHO TRANSCENDS EVERY ERA, THE IMMORTAL WHO DEFIES ALL PREVIOUS LIMITATIONS – THE FRONTRUNNER FOR THIS INDUSTRY, THE PINNACLE OF SINGULAR EXCELLENCE IN THIS SPORT HAS OUTDONE HIMSELF ONCE AGAIN! GAWDZILLA REIGNS SUPREME, HERE IN THE MECCA OF ELITE!!!!

( DEDEDE caresses the Answers World Championship, and gingerly exits the ring, giving one last, soul-crushing demonic grin to Jamie O’Hara who sits on the floor writhing in physical agony and emotional toil. DEDEDE walks up the ramp, and the closed captioning comes on the bottom corner of the screen while DDD continues his exit from the confetti-covered arena. Fireworks continue to chime from above the stadium. )

Stew-O: What an honor, as always! What a spectacle! An event where our Elitists dumped everything from the fibre of their being into succeeding! And we end the greatest Pain for Pride of all time, with the greatest to ever do it! THANK YOU, this doesn’t exist without all of you! We will see you in New Orleans, in just one weeks time for the 2019 EAW Draft! Join us next year for The War to End All Wars, as the greatest event in live entertainment takes place June 26th-28th in Philadelphia! And until then, GOOD NIGHT, FROM THE MECCA!

( The final shot is of DDD walking up the ramp dragging the Answers World Title behind him with a stoic look on his blood drenched face. Camera eventually fades to black. )
