(The camera fades open to a shot of Los Angeles on a clear blue sky summer day. It’s unassuming, the roads are as busy as ever as people go about their day in the city of angels. The camera then fades to a shot of a church located near the Hollywood hills. A pastor holding a large book in his hands walks into the nave of the church, through the giant wooden doors and past the congregation who have arrived)
(We never see the face of the pastor as he reaches the plinth at the front of the nave, the camera focuses on the book which has a certain, familiar emblem splashed across it…)
(The pastor slowly opens the book and skips several pages before clearing his throat and beginning his sermon)
Pastor: We gather here today on the holiest of weekends. Where the veil separating heaven and earth wavers and we, God’s children, get a glimpse into what lies beyond if only for a brief moment.
(The camera fades to a view of the church’s ceiling. It depicts a series of violent wars throughout history, right across the globe. From the Holy Roman Empire to countless other European wars of religion waged by nations such as Great Britain and Ireland, Denmark, France and Norway. The paintings further depict wars fought in the Middle East and Asia.)
Pastor: History has shown us that war has always and will always be fought in the name of God. The desire to appease the creator, violence has always been at the root of many individual’s desire to reach their concept of heaven. Millions dying, all their last, final breaths being safe passage to an eternal afterlife in a kingdom resting on clouds. But heaven doesn’t exist in the life that comes next. No, it signals it’s arrival for a brief moment once a year.
(The stained glass windows of the church depict a series of men and women, with previous Pain For Pride logos also enshrined at the bottom of the pieces of art. In the rays of light that penetrate through the glass, moments of Pain For Pride in years gone past play out relating to each man and woman depicted in the glass. CM Banks, Mr. DEDEDE, Mak, HRDO, Extreme Enigma, Sabina, Impact, Starrstan among others)
Pastor: Matthew, 6:33, “But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.” Indeed, for those who reach the holy destination receive many things. Fame, glory, infamy. All that they desired has been achieved in this heavenly domain. Some sacrifices were folly, were simply in vain though for some it led them to that all too addicting ideal of immortality itself.
(Along the pews, where the packed congregation sits, artwork of more recent moments at Pain For Pride are detailed. Moments of victory for the likes of Jamie O’Hara, Darcy May Morgan, The Visual Prophet, Malcolm Jones, Rex McAllister and Kassidy Heart)
Pastor: Romans 12:1-2, “I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.”
Pastor: What is it that you’re all willing to sacrifice for what you desire most? No mere mortal enters beyond those gates without leaving a piece of their soul behind. Without sacrifice there is no reward, without pain there is no pride. All those who came before you, all those who reached their nirvana built what we know today on that very concept. So when those bells do toll, when the trumpets fill the air, will you be ready? Will you be prepared to endure?
(The pastor hesitates for a moment, raising a finger in the air. The camera pans to the outside of the church, slowly zooming in on the tower. The church bell sits silently, undisturbed until…)
**DING** **DONG** **DING** **DONG** **DING** **DONG**
(The closest shot of the pastor yet of only his mouth as he grins)
Pastor: That time is now upon us.
(The congregation becomes fearful, terrified as the ground shakes beneath their feet but the pastor gestures to calm. The camera cuts to people scattering throughout the city of Los Angeles before cutting to Venice beach. The tide begins to recede, the pier collapses into the ocean…or what formerly was)
Pastor: My congregation! Do not fear for tonight, we will not just simply get a glimpse into the veil, but rather we will bring heaven itself to the city of Angels. Let us purge sin from all those who are sinful. Let us bring forth a new era for this world and mold it into our vision, into what God desires for his kingdom!!
(A loud crack echoes as the ground slightly tips. Several smaller cracks follow to level it out. After a brief moment, the entire city of Los Angeles begins to rise out of the ground. Clouds form at the base of the rock and lift it into the sky. A bright ring encompasses the floating city before flashing into pearly white gates and fences and a golden staircase reaching the forgotten earth below forms. Several EAW Elitists race towards it, clashing with one another. Many fall before even reaching the steps and only a few manage to reach the gates themselves)
Pastor: Matthew 7:13-14; “Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few.” So many of you will stumble and fall in your desire to reach this place consumed by destruction but for the few who do, glory awaits. Make your ascension and claim your future. Seize the moment and etch your name in the history books.
(Ms. Extreme sits at the bottom of the staircase. She prepares herself and begins the slow climb up the stairway to the top. As she finally reaches the top of her climb, standing before the pearly gates, a figure stands in her way. The camera pans to reveal it to be Darcy May Morgan with the keys to the kingdom in her grasp as she dangles them before her opponent)
Pastor: Tragically it will be the end of the line for some. Their final chance to enter the promised paradise, denied entry by one who already has their key to immortality.
(On the west of the city, Xander Payne emerges towering over the people below on what was formerly Venice beach. He proceeds to swiftly drive both his fists into the ground causing a ripple that races across Heaven altering the very appearance of the kingdom itself. The formerly Hollywood sign now reading “PAIN FOR PRIDE” shifts and becomes “PAYNE FOR PRIDE”. However, standing tall in the middle of the city is none other than Impact himself. He raises his hand and promptly ends Xander’s efforts to alter the kingdom.)
Pastor: All things must change. Old must be replaced by new and those who stand in the way of progress, fighting to preserve their own vision must step aside, for the machine of progress does not stop.
(On top of the Hollywood hills, a throne emerges and King Kass takes her place with the Answers World Championship draped over her shoulder and her crown resting on her head. As she enjoys the sight looking over this new risen heaven, clouds above her turn black, lightning cracks revealing Jamie O’Hara reaching out)
Pastor: As it stands, a throne of immortality waits for one to conquer it. Yet be weary of those who seek to reclaim what was previously theirs and the war they’re willing to rage. But this too, this outdated philosophy, must eventually end.
(Back on the ground, a large hoard of people have gathered and headed directly for the church itself. At the head of this group is Malcolm Jones who barges down the doors of the church where this opening had began)
Pastor: And you…
(As he approaches the front of the nave, two individuals sitting on the front two pews. They turn around to reveal themselves to be none other than…**MINERVA AND MYLES**)
Pastor: Looking to defy what God dictates…
(Malcolm, realising what is going on, pauses before reaching the front. The pastor slowly turns around to reveal himself to be Drake King all along)
Drake King: You cannot stop this creation of a New Eden for all.
(Drake’s cackle becomes a roaring laugh as the camera slowly pans out of the church. It continues to pan to an overview of the kingdom, Xander and Impact wage their war, Kassidy continues to rest on her throne as the threat of Jamie O’Hara looms, Darcy May Morgan still blocks Ms Extreme from entering heaven. A final shot of Los Angeles, resting on the clouds high in the sky with the Pain For Pride logo stretching from one end of the screen to the other in the background before fading to black, with only Drake’s laughter being heard before it too fades out)
Narrator: AND NOW…
(The camera flies through a more traditional depiction of heaven. Rising up a stairway lined by angels blowing trumpets and passing Saint Peter. The gates open to a burst of light blinding the camera. It transitions to the Pain For Pride logo rising above the clouds, the angelic wings flapping with feathers falling)
Narrator: ELITE ANSWERS WRESTLING PROUDLY PRESENTS! THE 14TH ANNUAL PRESENTATION OF PRO WRESTLING’S GREATEST SPECTACLE…
Narrator: **PAIN FOR PRIDE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!**
(The scene cuts straight to SoFi Stadium. Pyrotechnics crackle in the space above the ring before a series of blue and white pyro explode around the rim of the Oculus Ring from the south end to the north. As it begins to reach the north end, pyrotechnics race along the aisle before erupting in a sea of colours in a tremendously uniform manner. The pyro proceeds to race around the trip of the stage base before racing up two LED staircases that lead to a second platform before erupting one one final, glorious display of colour. The crowd erupts at the finale)
SCREENBAR — SOLD OUT
SCREENBAR — SOFI STADIUM. LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA.
Stew-O: WELCOME EVERYONE TO THE FOURTEENTH ANNUAL EXTRAVAGANZA. WELCOME TO THE PINNACLE OF THIS INDUSTRY. WELCOME TO THE STAIRWAY TO IMMORTALITY. **WELCOME TO PAIN FOR PRIDE!!!!** FOR THE NEXT THREE NIGHTS THE GATES TO NIRVANA HAVE OPENED UP FOR THE ELITISTS OF DYNASTY, SHOWDOWN AND VOLTAGE TO TEMPT FATE AND REALISE THEIR DREAMS.
(The camera fades to a shot of the Dynasty announce desk where Stew-O, Jake Mercer and Flannery McCoy are standing by)
Stew-O: Ladies and gentlemen I’m privileged to welcome you all to a SoFi Stadium packed with fully vaccinated fans of Elite Answers Wrestling. The tumultuous year that has been the last twelve months and the slow return of audiences has led here to here tonight. It’s thanks to everyone’s efforts that we find ourselves back to a place of normalcy. And I’m honored to introduce my colleagues from Dynasty, Flannery McCoy and Jake Mercer!
Flannery McCoy: It has been a long, long road back to where we are now but let’s not dwell on the past twelve months, this weekend is a celebration of all things Elite Answers Wrestling and Dynasty has a STACKED lineup of matches that I believe rival whatever Showdown and Voltage are bringing.
Jake Mercer: A clash of generations, the World Heavyweight Champion Xander Payne defending against the man on the verge of making history by becoming the first TEN!! YES TEN TIME WORLD CHAMPION, IMPACT!!! The young rising star in Adam Lucas defends the newly reintroduced Hardcore Champion against the man who is arguably the greatest of all time, The Gawd, MR. DEDEDE! Plus I believe our brand has the strongest participants in this year’s Cash In The Vault match! And so, so much more!
Stew-O: Let’s send it over to our Showdown partners! Deadprez, Eve and Gavin Kirkland!
(The camera moves down the row to the Showdown announce desk where all three members of the Showdown announce team are standing by)
Deadprez: Thanks Stew! The blue brand welcomes you to Pain For Pride. Deadprez here alongside Eve and Gavin Kirkland and the year that has been on Saturday nights has been a rollercoaster of emotions, hardships, loss and victories and yet we are here tonight, here on this wonderful weekend.
Eve: I don’t think either Voltage or Dynasty have this kind of headline act. FOR SHOWDOWN, IT IS KING VERSUS ACE. IT IS HEART VERSUS O’HARA FOR THE ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP! AND THIS IS GOING TO GET UGLY! The Interwire Championship is on the line, Bronson Daniels versus Dynasty’s MITSUBACHI! The Beating Hearts of Voltage collide! Nikolas versus Ripley! I’m running out of time just trying to name all that Showdown has to offer this weekend!
Gavin Kirkland: Wait…it’s actually Pain For Pride…that means…my Acey baby…his time is almost up :mjcry:
Deadprez: Gavin…It’s okay. It’s time to move on. Just like we’re moving on to last but not certainly least, the Voltage team!
(Gavin raises a bottle of Henny as he realises this could be the last time he sees the Ace in action. However the camera quickly shifts down to the Voltage announce table. James Peters, Rich Russillo and Persephone stand idly by ready to introduce themselves)
James Peters: It might be the end of an era for one on Showdown but here at SoFi Stadium, in front of a capacity crowd, the future of Voltage hangs in the balance. New Eden has terrorized Sunday nights for months, their ambitions are on the verge of being realised. Myles seeking to win Cash In The Vault. Minerva to take the National Elite Championship from the grasp of the Champion TLA. And in our main event, THE main event for Pain For Pride, Drake King’s war against EAW reaches its most critical point and the only man who stands in the way of stopping him is the EAW World Champion himself, Malcolm Jones. All that both men have worked towards could ultimately come undone.
Rich Russillo: James we could spend all our time here speaking about just how important the EAW World Championship match is not just to Voltage, but Elite Answers Wrestling as a whole! However we don’t just stop there. Will Ms. Extreme’s three year journey finally pay off? Will she be able to defeat the dominant, reigning and defending Universal Women’s Championship. Rising stars IDOL-GUN defend the Unified Tag Team Championships against Showdown’s Xavier Williams and Harlow Reichert in a battle that has become deeply personal. Plus, an old dream will be realised as Cameron Ella A–
Persephone: OH WHO CARES ABOUT THAT WHORE AND HER DREAM, MY SEXY REXY IS THE ONLY PERSON ON THE VOLTAGE BRAND THAT MATTERS AND IT’S A CRIME THAT HE ISN’T IN HIS FOURTH STRAIGHT MAIN EVENT.
James Peters: In fact, guys? We’re kicking this show off! Let’s send it over to Bella Braxton standing by!
(The camera fades to an overview of the SoFi Stadium as fans cheer and prepare themselves for the first day of Pain For Pride. It proceeds to fade to Bella Braxton standing in the middle of the ring with a beaming smile on her face. The first match will be a Voltage match!)
Bella Braxton: The following contest is scheduled for…
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!!!!!!!
Bella Braxton: ONE FALL! AND AHREN FOURNIER’S HALL OF FAME RING WILL BE ON THE LINE!
Crowd: Need to get me one of those tbh, proper shiny.
(‘Natural’ by Imagine Dragons would hit the speakers, as the fans suddenly erupt into cheers. The lights would all go dark, apart from the titantron, that shows nothing but flames. The flames would suddenly freeze over, as the name “Terry Chambers” appears on screen. Dry Ice would be blown onto the stage, as Terry Chambers himself would walk out onto the stage, wearing a chain-filled coat. The Dry Ice would slowly disappear, as Terry Chambers lets out a battle cry, and begins to walk down the ramp.)
Bella Braxton: Introducing first… hailing from Detroit, Michigan, weighing in at 257 pounds… he is the “Barbaric Carnivore”… TERRYYYYYYYYYYYY CHAAAAAAAAAAMBEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEERS!!!!
James Peters: Here comes the former EAW World Champion! After defeating SOSA Henderson at King Of Elite, he was able to pick up his first world championship after so long of trial and error just to get there; even a controversial false finish at Road To Redemption, where it was revealed after the bell had rung that Terry’s shoulder was not down for the three count. Now? He walks down the ramp trying to prove a personal point.
Rich Russillo: A personal point against my, and many other people’s true GOAT, and regardless of it being Terry Chambers or not, this is going to be a hard task for him to overcome! So much has changed for Terry in the past year, and right now he could either walk out a legitimized LEGEND, or Terry Chambers. He needs this victory so much more than his opponent, but that’s what makes it such a hard one to call.
James Peters: Terry Chambers and Ahren Fournier have had nothing but disagreements, intense encounters, and back and forth fighting between the two of them, because Terry Chambers believes that the Hall of Fame status Ahren Fournier possesses is not only undeserved, but he wants to take it out. In his own words “something that needed to be done a LONG time ago” in reference to “taking out the trash” as he put it. Tonight, he can do exactly that.
(Terry Chambers walks up the steel steps and enters the ring, before slapping himself in the head to hype himself up. Terry would go to the turnbuckles and climb to the middle rope, before posing and letting out another battle cry, as pyrotechnics would be let off in the background, creating a visual that could immediately be remembered as iconic.)
(Terry Chambers climbs off the turnbuckles, as his theme would fade out. Terry removes his jacket, before ‘How You Like That’ by BLACKPINK hits the speakers. The crowd would let out fierce boos of hatred, as umbrellas would begin to stick out of the stage. Suddenly, one by one, the umbrellas light ablaze, lighting up the stage and ramp, as Ahren Fournier walks out on the stage holding a flaming umbrella, and joined by Jennipurr. He points the fiery umbrella down the ramp at Terry Chambers, before raising up his other hand; a hand that contains his Hall of Fame ring.)
Bella Braxton: And introducing his opponent… Hailing from Pawtucket, Rhode Island, weighing in at 210 pounds… HE IS “THE GOAT”…. AAAAAAAAAAAAHREEEEEEEEEEEEN FOUUUURNIEEEEEEEEEEEEEER!!!!!!!!!
James Peters: Building off of the words that I mentioned earlier, Ahren Fournier is here to put his Hall of Fame ring on the line in order to prove not only to Terry but every other doubter that he does deserve his spot in the Hall of Fame, and that there’s a reason he’s accomplished that and Terry Chambers hasn’t. Joining the Hall of Fame class last year along the likes of Chris Elite, TLA and Rex McAllister, Ahren has certainly earned his stripes here in EAW; but Terry thinks otherwise.
Persephone: Of course, neither one of them can even *MATCH* Rex McAllister. Rex was THE Hall of Famer last year, the rest were just there so it wouldn’t be an empty stage since there was so much extra room. I couldn’t give a shit who wins this match, because I know my Rex-tacular Hunk deserves it more than anyone!
Rich Russillo: Let’s not forget how Terry Chambers was the reason that Ahren Fournier did not win the National Elite Championship against fellow 2020 Hall of Fame inductee TLA. Terry Chambers is trying too hard to prove Ahren wrong, but if he sat back and watched, we’d have learned that Ahren was right, and that he does deserve where he’s at. He’s one of my many goats, and that truly means something.
(Ahren Fournier would stop at the bottom of the ramp, as he approached the podium. He slowly removes his Hall of Fame ring, before kissing the logo on the front. Ahren steps up onto the apron, and removes his jacket, before throwing it at Terry, making their feud even more heated, as Terry clearly doesn’t appreciate that. Ahren Fournier would then enter the ring, and climb up the turnbuckles, before aiming the umbrella into the air once more, as the flames slowly fade out, along with his theme song. Ahren Fournier climbs off the turnbuckles, waiting in his corner, as the bell etches closer to ringing.)
James Peters: The crowd may hold distaste for Ahren, but he sure knows how to make an impact. What an entrance, I have to say!
Persephone: Rex’s is gonna be better… and hotter!
(DING! DING! DING!)
James Peters: And we are underway! The first bell toll of the three nights of legends being made, stars being born; the staircase of immortality, Pain For Pride 14!!! The build up has been intense, but it’s been worth the wait, as we’ve seen many rise and many fall. We’ve seen people like Terry get to the top, whilst he believes Ahren isn’t’ deserving of being there. Tonight is the collision course that proves whether he’s right or wrong, and soon we’re going to get the answer.
Rich Russillo: There’s a reason why Ahren Fournier himself is *called* the goat and Terry Chambers isn’t, there’s a reason why Ahren Fournier has that Hall of Fame ring and Terry Chambers *doesn’t*, and it’s the outcome we all expect!
Persephone: As far as I’m concerned, they’re both wrong since they’re not talking about my Sexy Rexy.
(Ahren Fournier and Terry Chambers begin to walk towards the center of the ring, as they trash talk one another due to their conflicting morals and ethics. They meet in the middle, before staring at each other with a look of hatred. Terry Chambers then points at the Hall of Fame ring resting on the pedestal outside.)
Terry Chambers: (off-mic) You don’t deserve this. You don’t deserve *THAT*.
Ahren Fournier: (off-mic) Watching me walk down the ramp with it is the closest you will ever get to one outside of your dream world.
Terry Chambers: (off-mic) We’ll see, “goat.” I hope you’re ready for your finish to be the polar opposite of strong.
James Peters: These two want each other to know exactly how they feel about one another, their rivalry has been centered around their beliefs and their words, and now they’re going to channel that into their match!
Rich Russillo: Terry and Ahren continue to trash talk each other, before Terry suddenly pushes Ahren back by his chest, almost making him stumble off his feet!
(Ahren looks away from Terry, with a smug chuckle on his face, before retaliating.)
Rich Russillo: BUT INSTEAD OF FIGHTING BACK, AHREN FOURNIER SIMPLY SLAPS TERRY CHAMBERS RIGHT IN THE FACE, BEFORE SPITTING RIGHT IN HIS FACE! GUYS WE HAVE A PANDEMIC OVER HERE, AND IT’S NOT LIKE THOSE VACC-SCAMS ARE GOING TO PROTECT YOU!!!
James Peters: :mjwhat:
Ahren Fournier: (off-mic) TRY HARDER!
James Peters: AND TRY HARDER HE WILL, AS TERRY CHAMBERS QUICKLY THROWS A LARIAT TOWARDS AHREN FOURNIER’S HEAD- BUT HE HAD IT SCOUTED, DUCKING UNDERNEATH AND RUNNING THE ROPES! NOW WE SEE A RUNNING KNEE ATTEMPT FROM AHREN, HOWEVER TERRY SIDESTEPS AND THROWS AHREN INTO THE ROPES! OVERHEAD BELLY TO BELLY-
Rich Russillo: BUT AHREN HOOKS HIS ARMS OVER THE TOP ROPE, AND TERRY ISN’T ABLE TO GRAB ANYTHING; FLAILING HIS ARMS IN THE AIR! AHREN GETS HIS BOOT UP AND JABS IT INTO TERRY’S FACE, BEFORE JUMPING ONTO THE MIDDLE ROPE! SPRINGBOARD KNEE STRIKE-
James Peters: BUT TERRY CHAMBERS QUICKLY MANAGES TO CATCH AHREN FOURNIER ON HIS SHOULDERS, PUTTING HIM IN THE POWERBOMB POSITION, AND AT ANY MOMENT HE COULD DRIVE HIM FULL-THROTTLE INTO THE MAT, AND THAT WOULDN’T BE A GOOD THING FOR AHREN TO ENDURE!
Rich Russillo: AHREN IS TRYING TO STRUGGLE HIS WAY OUT OF IT, BUT TERRY IS TURNING HIM AROUND TO GET TO THE CENTER OF THE RING, MAKING HIM FACE AWAY FROM THE ROPES SO HE HAS NOTHING TO HOLD ONTO-
James Peters: HOWEVER HE FORGETS TO ACKNOWLEDGE HOW DEEP AHREN IS WILLING TO GO IN ORDER TO INFLICT PAIN ON ANOTHER; AS AHREN GRABS HIM BY THE RING FINGER, AND BEGINS TO BEND IT BACKWARDS! TERRY IS SCREAMING IN AGONY!
Ahren Fournier: (off-mic) I PROMISE YOU! YOU WILL NEVER… WEAR… THAT… RING!!!
Rich Russillo: AND NOW AHREN IS PROMISING TERRY THAT HE’S NEVER GOING TO WEAR THE HALL OF FAME RING, NOT ONLY DOES HE MEAN BEING INDUCTED, OR WINNING HERE TONIGHT, BUT HE ALSO MEANS *PHYSICALLY*!!!! WHAT A TRUE GOAT! SO WISE!
James Peters: AHREN LOOKS TO SNAP THE FINGER RIGHT OFF THE BONE, HOWEVER TERRY CHAMBERS MANAGES TO ESCAPE BY PLACING AHREN ON HIS FEET, AND OVERPOWERING HIM; PUSHING HIM BACKWARDS INTO THE ROPES! RUNNING CHOP TO THE CHEST!!
Rich Russillo: Ahren Fournier stumbles forward, holding onto his chest in pain due to the large hand that flew at his flesh at a very high speed! I’m a strong guy myself, but that chop sounded like a gunshot, even I’d cave in! The fact Ahren is even standing is impressive, and shows off his skill!
James Peters: But Terry Chambers isn’t too impressed, as he goes to take Ahren Fournier down again; lifting him up by the chin, before hitting another huge chop, and if that last one was a gunshot, that one was a rocket launcher! You could hear that all the way at the Santa Monica Pier from here!
Rich Russillo: Ahren Fournier stumbles into the corner, and this is an extremely terrible position for him to be in right now! Terry Chambers has him backed into a corner, with a height and weight advantage, but fret not! The goat will always have a way out of it-
James Peters: BUT TERRY CHAMBERS DENIES ANY WAY OUT OF IT AS HE HITS A HUGE RUNNING CHOP TO AHREN FOURNIER’S CHEST ONCE MORE, AND THIS TIME HE APPEARS TO BE COMPLETELY WINDED! HIS CHEST MIGHT END UP PURPLE BY THE TIME THIS MATCH IS OVER!
Rich Russillo: AND NOW TERRY CHAMBERS WRAPS HIS HANDS AROUND AHREN FOURNIER’S THROAT, AND DRAGS HIM AWAY FROM THE CORNER, CHOKING THE LIFE OUT OF HIM, AS HE SCREAMS INTO HIS FACE!
Terry Chambers: (off-mic) YOU’RE NOT GONNA KEEP THAT PROMISE, AHREN! YOU DOOMED YOURSELF TO FAIL!
James Peters: AND NOW TERRY CHAMBERS LOOKS TO THROW AHREN FOURNIER OVER HIS HEAD, HITTING AN OVERHEAD CHOKING-BELLY TO BELLY SUPLEX, FORCING AHREN INTO THE AIR AND LANDING ON HIS SHOULDERS!
Rich Russillo: BUT AHREN FOURNIER IS ONE STEP AHEAD! WHILST TERRY WASTED TIME TO CLAP BACK, HE MANAGED TO FIND A WAY TO SCOUT IT, AND NOW HE ROLLS STRAIGHT BACK UP TO HIS FEET! HE RUNS FORWARD… ‘STORYBOOK ENDING’!!! CURB STOMP!
James Peters: BUT TERRY CHAMBERS POPS HIS HEAD UP BEFORE AHREN FOURNIER IS ABLE TO EVEN GET HIS FOOT ON THE BACK OF HIS HEAD, STANDING UP AND HITTING A HUGE EUROPEAN UPPERCUT TO THE SIDE OF HIS HEAD, AND NOW AHREN FOURNIER STUMBLES BACK!
Rich Russillo: Then Ahren drops to a knee, as Terry quickly retreats out onto the apron! Ha! I knew that man was a coward! Just like all cowards, he’s scaling the turnbuckles! Wait… THAT BIG ASS DUDE IS SCALING THE TURNBUCKLES! IS HE *TRYING* TO CAUSE AN EARTHQUAKE???
James Peters: NOT QUITE, BUT HE MAY BE PLANNING TO MAKE AHREN FEEL THE EFFECTS OF ONE, CLIMBING UP TO THE TOP ROPE, PREYING ON AHREN FOURNIER! TERRY CHAMBERS STANDS UP ON THE VERY PEAK, BEFORE LEAPING!
Rich Russillo: BUT AHREN FOURNIER QUICKLY POPS UP AND HITS A EUROPEAN UPPERCUT OF HIS OWN! ANYTHING HE CAN DO, AHREN CAN DO BETTER! TERRY CHAMBERS DROPS TO HIS KNEES, AND NOW AHREN FOURNIER RUNS THE ROPES!
James Peters: BUT TERRY IS QUICK TO HIS FEET, AS THE SECOND AHREN HITS THE ROPES, TERRY MEETS HIM WITH A HUGE BACK ELBOW TO THE SIDE OF THE JAW, AND NOW AHREN DROPS TO HIS KNEES! BUT TERRY ISN’T DONE, AS HE RUNS TOO-
Rich Russillo: HOWEVER WE SEE AHREN GET UP THE SECOND TERRY IS FACING AWAY, AND WHEN HE MEETS THE ROPES, AHREN SNATCHES HIM WITH A HUGE ROLLING ELBOW, KNOCKING TERRY DOWN TO HIS KNEES! NOW AHREN RUNS THE ROPES ONCE AGAIN!
James Peters: BUT HE DIDN’T DO ENOUGH TO KEEP TERRY DOWN ENTIRELY; SPRINTING BEHIND AHREN, BEFORE CLOTHESLINING HIM RIGHT OVER THE TOP ROPE TO THE OUTSIDE, WITH AHREN STUMBLING BACKWARDS ONTO THE RAMP, AS TERRY CHAMBERS RUNS THE ROPES IN THE RING!
Rich Russillo: THE BARBARIC CARNIVORE NOW LOOKS TO DEFY THE LAWS OF PHYSICS, BOUNCING OFF THE ROPES AND TOWARDS THE OTHER SIDE, BEFORE LEAPING INTO THE AIR! HOLY FUCK! TOPE CON HILO FROM TERRY CHAMBERS!!!!!!!!!!
(Terry Chambers goes flying over the top rope, taking Ahren Fournier out off his feet, before rolling forward and getting back up.)
James Peters: TERRY CHAMBERS IS GOING ALL OUT FOR PAIN FOR PRIDE, AS HE LETS OUT A BATTLE CRY, WITH THE CROWD GOING WILD FOR THIS MAN!!!! THERE’S NOT ONE MAN, WOMAN, AND EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN THAT ISN’T ON THEIR FEET RIGHT NOW! TERRY CHAMBERS POINTS TO THE HALL OF FAME RING, BEFORE TURNING BACK TO AHREN FOURNIER!
(Terry Chambers grabs Ahren Fournier by the hair, no longer tied up, before lifting him off his feet. As Terry throws Ahren into the ring, a replay angle would play on-screen.)
Crowd: TER-RY CHAM-BERS! *clap x5* TER-RY CHAM-BERS! *clap x5*
James Peters: TERRY CHAMBERS SLIDES IN BEHIND AHREN FOURNIER, USING THE ROPES TO LIFT HIM OFF THE GROUND, BEFORE HE THEN BEGINS TO SQUAT DOWN IN THE CORNER; AIMING A FINGER GUN AT AHREN FOURNIER’S HEAD, AS THE SELF-PROCLAIMED CAPTAIN OF VOLTAGE BEGINS TO PUSH HIMSELF OFF HIS FEET!
Terry Chambers: (off-mic) LOOK AT ME AHREN! LOOK AT ME IN THE EYES BEFORE I KNOCK THEM OUT OF CONSCIOUSNESS!
Rich Russillo: AHREN FOURNIER IS BEING BERATED BY TERRY CHAMBERS, AS HE HYPES HIMSELF UP FOR THE ‘RANDOM ACT OF VIOLENCE’ CLAYMORE KICK, AHREN FOURNIER GETTING BACK UP TO HIS FEET! TERRY CHAMBERS BOUNCES OUT OF THE CORNER AND RUNS FORWARD-
Persephone: 👎👎👎Ahren slides out of the ring. Yawn.
James Peters: Just as Terry Chambers was about to lift up his leg for the ‘Random Act of Violence’, Ahren Fournier slips out of the ring in a way to stop himself from having to deal with the move!
Rich Russillo: Terry Chambers eyes quickly divert to the outside of the ring, having just watched the man trash talking him escape, and of course to his caveman brain, this is an act of cowardice, but to my smart brain, this is an act of defiance. He would be stupid to let Terry hit him with that move, but he’s defiant to risk his reputation to keep going!
James Peters: Terry Chambers isn’t allowing Ahren to escape him, though, as he brushes past the referee and exits onto the apron, before dropping to the outside to confront Ahren Fournier- but Ahren cuts him off! The second his feet hit the mat, Ahren grabs him by the neck and throws him stomach-first into the barricade! THEN BACK FIRST INTO THE RING APRON!
Rich Russillo: AHREN FOURNIER BEGINS TO GO BACK AND FORTH BETWEEN DRIVING TERRY INTO THE APRON, STOMACH-FIRST, OR INTO THE APRON, BACK-FIRST, AS HE REPEATEDLY LOOKS TO DO DAMAGE TO THE BODY!!! BARRICADE! APRON! BARRICADE! APRON! AND THEN AHREN DRAGS TERRY AWAY FROM THE APRON, BEFORE HOOKING HIS LEGS! IT TAKES A LOT OUT OF HIM, BUT HE MANAGES TO HIT AN EXPLODER SUPLEX INTO THE BARRICADE, AND IT APPEARS TERRY CHAMBERS IS OUT OF IT!
James Peters: AHREN FOURNIER RISES TO HIS FEET AND GRABS TERRY CHAMBERS BY THE HAIR, LUCKILY, TERRY ISN’T ENTIRELY UNCONSCIOUS, AND AHREN ISN’T CARRYING COMPLETE DEAD WEIGHT! HE HAS ENOUGH ENERGY TO LIFT HIM BACK UP TO HIS FEET, HOWEVER TERRY QUICKLY DROPS DOWN TO HIS STOMACH! AHREN CAN’T KEEP HIM UP!
Referee: (off-mic) Woof.
(Translation: Ay fam, you staying out there hella long. I’m gonna count!)
Jennipurr: (off-mic) Meow.
James Peters: AND NOW AHREN FOURNIER SLIDES INTO THE RING, LEAVING TERRY OUT ON THE OUTSIDE!
James Peters: TERRY CHAMBERS GRABS ONTO THE APRON!
James Peters: AND SLIDES INTO THE RING-
James Peters: SUCCESSFULLY! TERRY MAKES IT INTO THE RING WHILST HOLDING ONTO HIS RIBS! THE DAMAGE THE BARRICADE AND APRON HAD DONE ARE PLAYING THEIR EFFECT INTO HOW HE’S SIMPLY GETTING INTO THE RING-
Rich Russillo: WAIT! IT SEEMS AHREN FOURNIER IS TAKING NOTES FROM SOSA’S PLAYBOOK, AS HE LOOKS TO DO WHAT SOSA DID TO MYLES LAST MONTH! THE CURB STOMP AS TERRY ENTERS THE RING AND BREAKS THE COUNT!
James Peters: BUT TERRY CHAMBERS CATCHES AHREN FOURNIER IN A POWERBOMB POSITION ALMOST INSTANTLY! HE MANAGED TO BOUNCE UP TO HIS FEET, AND AHREN HAS NOWHERE TO GO-
Rich Russillo: BUT TERRY’S BACK GIVES OUT!!!
Rich Russillo: TERRY’S BACK AND RIBS GO AGAINST HIM, AND HE DROPS AHREN TO THE FLOOR, WHILST FALLING OVER HIMSELF, AS HE USES HIS RIGHT ARM TO TRY AND NUMB THE PAIN!
Rich Russillo: AND TO MAKE MATTERS WORSE, AHREN FOURNIER SNAPS THE RING FINGER OF TERRY CHAMBERS IN HALF! HE BREAKS THE RING FINGER, AND NOW TERRY IS IN EVEN MORE PAIN! BUT AHREN IS STILL HOLDING ONTO THE FINGER!
Rich Russillo: AND HE SNAPS IT AGAIN! AHREN FOURNIER SNAPS TERRY CHAMBERS’ FINGER ANOTHER TIME, BEFORE BENDING HIS ENTIRE HAND BACKWARDS AND PLACING IT PALM-DOWN ONTO THE MAT!
James Peters: AHREN FOURNIER IS NOW FOCUSING ON THE LEFT ARM OF TERRY CHAMBERS, AS HE USES JOINT MANIPULATION TO BEND THE ARM BACKWARDS, WHICH IS GOING TO DO MORE THAN JUST MAKE THE ARM ACHE, THIS COULD ENTIRELY BREAK IT! AHREN STANDS THE ARM UP, WITH THE PALM AGAINST THE MAT, BEFORE JUMPING INTO THE AIR AND HITTING A DOUBLE FOOT STOMP, SNAPPING THE ELBOW BACK TO THE GROUND!!!! HE MAY HAVE JUST BROKE TERRY CHAMBERS’ ARM!!!
Rich Russillo: TERRY CHAMBERS JOLTS UP TO HIS KNEES, AS HE HOLDS ONTO HIS LEFT ELBOW, CLEARLY THAT STOMP AND FINGER SNAP HAS DONE SOMETHING TO TERRY’S ARM, AS HE’S COMPLETELY LOSING FOCUS ON AHREN! AHREN STOMPS HIS FOOT IN THE CORNER, AS HE MOCKS WHAT TERRY CHAMBERS WAS DOING EARLIER WITH THE FINGER GUN!
James Peters: AHREN FOURNIER GETS BACK UP TO HIS FEET, AS HE THEN TURNS AROUND AND GOES TO HIT A SUPERKICK STRAIGHT TO TERRY CHAMBERS’ HEAD! HE SWINGS THE LEG, AND IT CONNECTS-
Rich Russillo: BUT EVEN THROUGH THE PAIN, TERRY CHAMBERS MANAGES TO SIDESTEP, AND AHREN FOURNIER MISSES THE KICK! TERRY CHAMBERS GETS BACK TO HIS FEET, BEFORE PLANTING THE SNAP HEADBUTT TO AHREN FOURNIER’S HEAD! ‘MOMENT OF SILENCE’!!!
James Peters: BUT HE DOESN’T GET INTO THE COVER, HE ROCKED HIMSELF WITH THE HEADBUTT, STUMBLING BACK INTO THE CORNER, UNABLE TO PROTECT HIMSELF DUE TO COVERING UP HIS ARM ALREADY, BUT HE’S GOING TO TRY!
Rich Russillo: TERRY CHAMBERS’ ARM GOT THE BETTER OF HIM, BUT HE SOMEHOW MANAGED TO CAPITALIZE, NOW HE HAS A STUNNED HEAD TO WORRY ABOUT, DESPITE BEING IN CONTROL THIS DOESN’T LOOK AMAZING FOR THE MICHIGAN BORN TERRY CHAMBERS, BUT MAYBE IT’S GOING TO MAKE IT LOOK GOOD! HE SPRINTS TOWARDS AHREN…
James Peters: ‘STORYBOOK ENDING’!!!! THE CURB STOMP… ONTO AHREN FOURNIER!!! TERRY CHAMBERS USED AHREN’S FINISHER AGAINST HIM, AND NOW SLIDES INTO THE COVER!
– …. . .-. . .—-. … / -. — / — . … … .- –. . / …. . .-. . / – …. .. … / – .. — .
James Peters: BUT AHREN FOURNIER POPS THE SHOULDER UP JUST IN THE NICK OF TIME, MAYBE HE POWERED OUT OF IT, MAYBE IT WAS INSTINCTUAL, OR MAYBE IT WAS BECAUSE OF THE LACK OF LEVERAGE; IT DOESN’T MATTER! AHREN FOURNIER KICKED OUT, AND HE KEPT GOING!
Rich Russillo: AND TERRY CHAMBERS CAN’T BELIEVE IT, USING HIS OWN FINISHER AGAINST THE GOAT, AND HE MANAGED TO KICK OUT OF IT! ABSOLUTELY UNBELIEVABLE, THE ENTIRE CROWD IS SHOCKED AT HOW AHREN MANAGED TO DO THAT!
(Terry Chambers crawls with a singular arm towards the turnbuckles, and uses those to his advantage; pulling himself up to his feet.)
James Peters: Terry Chambers’ arm is not working properly, and he knows this, he’s become aware of this, he was barely able to crawl, and climbing to his feet looked even harder. :lupe:
Rich Russillo: Ahren Fournier has probably broken or shattered something in that elbow, and it’s surprising that Terry was able to wrestle through that, nevertheless almost pick up the victory. But right now it might be something hard that he has to overcome to actually keep on going in this match.
Persephone: Weren’t you just calling Ahren the goat a second ago?
Rich Russillo: Who says I was sympathizing? :mackie:
James Peters: Wait… what on earth is Terry doing? He has his elbow pressed against the turnbuckle… he’s not going to… right?
James Peters: OH JESUS! TERRY CHAMBERS JUST POPPED HIS ELBOW BACK INTO PLACE, NOT ONLY IS THAT GOING TO BE PAINFUL, IT’S PROOF FOR AHREN THAT HE HAS A TARGET; BUT IT DOESN’T SEEM LIKE HE’S GOING TO BE ABLE TO RECOVER IN TIME TO CAPITALIZE! TERRY CHAMBERS MAKES HIS WAY OVER TO AHREN!
Rich Russillo: ADJUSTING HIS ARM, TERRY CHAMBERS GRABS AHREN BY BOTH OF HIS ARMS, AND HOOKS THEM OVER HIS OWN, PERHAPS LOOKING FOR THAT ‘CHAMBERS OF PAIN’ SIT-OUT BUTTERFLY DDT? CHAMBERS COMPLETELY HOOKS THE ARMS-
James Peters: BUT AHREN FOURNIER SPINS OUT OF IT, BEFORE HITTING TERRY CHAMBERS WITH A HUGE ROUNDHOUSE KICK INTO THE HEAD, AND TERRY DROPS DOWN TO HIS KNEES! AHREN FOURNIER HAS REGAINED CONTROL!
Rich Russillo: AHREN FOURNIER GOES BEHIND TERRY CHAMBERS, AND GRABS ONTO HIS WRIST, WHILST PULLING HIM OFF THE GROUND FROM HIS SLUMPED POSITION, IT LOOKS LIKE HE’S GOING TO FINISH HIM OFF HERE AND THERE!
James Peters: AHREN FOURNIER PLACES HIS OTHER, FREE ARM IN FRONT OF TERRY CHAMBERS’ THROAT, BEFORE MAKING A CUTTING MOTION SYMBOLIZING THE END! HE HAS THAT RIPCORD LOCKED IN, ALL HE NEEDS TO DO IS SPIN HIM AROUND AND HIT THAT KNEE STRIKE AND IT’LL BE OVER! HE PUSHES TERRY FORWARD… ‘THE CLIMAX’!!!!
Rich Russillo: BUT TERRY CHAMBERS QUICKLY KICKS AHREN FOURNIER IN THE GUT, AND HOOKS THE ARMS! ‘CHAMBERS OF PAIN’!!! ‘CHAMBERS OF PAIN’!! THE DOUBLE UNDERHOOK DDT CONNECTS, AND AHREN ROLLS ONTO HIS BACK! TERRY SLIDES INTO THE COVER, THIS TIME HOOKING ONE OF THE LEGS!!!
James Peters: BUT AHREN FOURNIER ONCE AGAIN MANAGES TO KICK OUT AND POP THE SHOULDER UP, AND GET OUT OF IT! THIS TIME IT WASN’T DEBATABLE, THAT WAS HIM CLINGING ONTO DEAR LIFE, POWERING OUT OF THE PINFALL, TERRY WASN’T GOING TO PUT HIM AWAY WITH THAT, AND HE KNOWS THIS!
Rich Russillo: TERRY QUICKLY MOUNTS AHREN FOURNIER, BEFORE HITTING SOME HUGE FOREARM STRIKES TO THE HEAD, TRYING TO MAKE SURE AHREN FOURNIER IS COMPLETELY OUT! ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FIVE! FIVE FOREARMS TO THE HEAD, BEFORE LOOKING FOR THE FINISH!
James Peters: AHREN FOURNIER HOOKS THE ARMS ONCE AGAIN, AND BEGINS TO LIFT AHREN OFF OF HIS FEET, HE’S GOING TO GO FOR THAT BUTTERFLY DDT ONCE MORE- BUT AHREN STARTS TO STRIKE TERRY CHAMBERS IN THE RIBS, GOING FOR THAT ESTABLISHED WEAK SPOT!
Rich Russillo: STRIKE AFTER STRIKE AFTER STRIKE, HE’S REPAYING HIM FOR ALL OF THE FOREARMS DELIVERED EARLIER! ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FIV-
James Peters: BUT THIS DOESN’T MAKE TERRY GIVE UP, INSTEAD, HE BEGINS TO SWING AHREN FOURNIER WHILST IN THE DOUBLE UNDERHOOK POSITION! AHREN FOURNIER’S LEGS FLY OFF THE GROUND, AND HE IS COMPLETELY HELPLESS AS THE CROWD BEGIN TO COUNT!
Crowd: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FIVE! SIX! SEVEN! EIGHT! NINE! TEN!!!
James Peters: AND WITH THE TENTH SWING, TERRY CHAMBERS PLANTS AHREN FOURNIER WITH A SECOND ‘CHAMBERS OF PAIN’ DOUBLE UNDERHOOK DDT! IT’S ALL OVER, AS TERRY LIES INTO THE COVER!
James Peters: S;DFKJSADF;KSJFD!!!
Rich Russillo: AHREN FOURNIER SAVED THE MATCHUP FOR HIMSELF, AND SAVING HIS HALL OF FAME RING, BY PLACING HIS RING FINGER ON THE BOTTOM ROPE! YOU CAN’T MAKE THIS UP!!!
James Peters: TERRY CHAMBERS ROLLS OFF OF AHREN FOURNIER, HOLDING HIS HEAD IN NOTHING BUT PURE CONFUSION, AS AHREN FOURNIER MANAGED TO GET THE ROPE BREAK, TERRY DOESN’T UNDERSTAND HOW HE MANAGED TO SURVIVE NOT ONE, BUT TWO OF THOSE DDT’S! AHREN SERIOUSLY IS FIGHTING FOR THAT HALL OF FAME RING, TO GET THIS WIN AT PAIN FOR PRIDE!
Rich Russillo: But Terry isn’t going to dwell on that for much longer, as he reaches for the ropes himself to pick himself back up, before stumbling back over to the corner, where he looks to finish the match once more! Terry Chambers squats down in the corner, as he awaits Ahren Fournier to get up again!
James Peters: Terry Chambers is now waiting for Ahren Fournier to get back up, but Ahren has barely moved. He’s barely moved from the spot he was just in, no matter get up off the ground, and Terry is barely noticing this as he drops his guard. Terry leaves his spot in the corner, as he begins to move his way back over towards Ahren Fournier, possibly going to pick him up from the ground he’s lying on, so he can hit the finishing blow and win this matchup! Terry Chambers bends over and grabs Ahren Fournier by the hair…
Rich Russillo: BUT HE GETS NOTHING BUT A FOREARM STRIKE TO THE JAW! AHREN FOURNIER IS FIRED UP, PLAYING POSSUM FOR THE MOST PART, AND NOW HE’S LAYING INTO TERRY! FOREARM TO THE HEAD! TO THE JAW! EAR! NOSE! HIS WHOLE FACE IS GOING TO BE BRUISED AND BATTERED AFTER THIS, AS HE REFUSES TO BACK DOWN!
James Peters: AHREN STRIKES TERRY BACKWARDS TOWARDS THE ROPES, USING THE POINT OF HIS ELBOW NOW TO DRIVE INTO HIS FOREHEAD, AND IT LOOKS TO BE TRULY EFFECTIVE, AS TERRY IS BACKED INTO THE ROPES, AND CLEARLY DAMAGED BY THOSE BRUTAL STRIKES THAT SOUNDED LIKE BULLETS!
Rich Russillo: BUT NOW AHREN FOURNIER HAS HIM ON THE ROPES, THERE’S ONLY ONE DIRECTION HE CAN ACTUALLY SEND HIM TO, AND THAT’S THE OTHER SIDE OF THE RING! AHREN HOOKS THE ARM, BEFORE IRISH WHIPPING TERRY, AND CHASING AFTER HIM! AHREN FOURNIER CLOBBERS TERRY CHAMBERS WITH A HUGE LARIAT TO THE HEAD-
James Peters: BUT TERRY MANAGES TO DUCK, AND CONTINUES RUNNING! HE HITS THE ROPES BEFORE LEAPING OFF THE GROUND… WITH A ‘RANDOM ACT OF VIOLENCE’!!!
Rich Russillo: BUT AHREN FOURNIER LIFTS UP HIS LEG AND HITS A PICTURE PERFECT ROUNDHOUSE KICK! HE KICKS HIM DIRECTLY IN THE ARM THAT HE MANAGED TO INJURE EARLIER! TERRY CHAMBERS INSTANTLY DROPS TO THE GROUND AND GRABS AHOLD OF HIS ARM, AND IT APPEARS AHREN FOURNIER MANAGED TO POP IT RIGHT OUT OF THE SOCKET ONCE MORE!
James Peters: AND AHREN NOTICES THIS! HE DOESN’T LET IT SLIP BY HIM, SO HE CONTINUES TO KICK THE ARM! SOCCER KICKS OVER AND OVER TO THE SHOULDER, HE’S NOT GIVING THAT ARM A BREAK, PERHAPS MAKING IT EVEN WORSE FROM WHAT IT WAS BEFORE! AHREN IS PUNISHING TERRY CHAMBERS FOR ALL OF THE OFFENSE HE JUST UNLOADED, I THINK THIS HAS GONE FAR BEYOND SIMPLE LIMB TARGETING!
James Peters: YET AHREN FOURNIER ISN’T FINISHED JUST YET, AS HE QUICKLY KNEELS DOWN AND GRABS TERRY’S ARM BY THE CREASE OF THE ELBOW, AND WRAPS HIS LEGS AROUND THE CHEST! HE’S LOOKING FOR THE CROSS ARMBAR, BUT TERRY CHAMBERS IS FIGHTING OUT OF IT!
Rich Russillo: TERRY USES HIS OTHER HAND TO LOCK HIS FINGERS TOGETHER, TRYING HIS HARDEST NOT TO LET AHREN FOURNIER LOCK IN THAT SUBMISSION, WRENCHING HIS ARM BACK AWAY FROM AHREN, WHILST AHREN WRENCHES IT IN A DIRECTION IT SHOULD NOT GO IN!
James Peters: BUT AHREN ISN’T LOOKING FOR A TUG OF WAR CONTEST, INSTEAD, HE’S ACTIVELY LOOKING TO SNAP THAT ARM IN HALF! AHREN BEGINS TO STOMP HIS FOOT INTO TERRY CHAMBER’S SHOULDER! OVER AND OVER AGAIN, IS TERRY’S GRIP GOING TO BE LET GO, OR IS AHREN FOURIER GOING TO BE THE ONE WHO LETS GO?? AHREN CONTINUES TO STOMP, AS TERRY’S GRIP GETS LOOSER AND LOOSER, WHICH IS A CLEAR DANGER FOR HIS ARM! THROUGH ALL THE STOMPS AND TUGGING, THE GRIP ON TERRY’S ARM SUDDENLY BECOMES LOOSE… AS TERRY PUSHES AHREN FOURNIER AWAY AS HE CATCHES ONE OF THE STOMPS!
Rich Russillo: TERRY CHAMBERS MANAGES TO SLIP OUT OF IT IN THE NICK OF TIME, BUT YOU HAVE TO WONDER WHAT DAMAGE THE GOAT HAS DONE TO THAT ARM REGARDLESS OF WHETHER HE GOT THE ARMBAR LOCKED IN OR NOT, HE STILL MESSED THAT SHOULDER UP!
James Peters: AHREN SOON FOLLOWS SUIT THOUGH, AS HE GETS TO HIS FEET JUST AFTER TERRY, AND MANAGES TO DODGE A BIG BOOT! ROLL UP! SCHOOL BOY ROLL UP!
Rich Russillo: BUT TERRY MANAGES TO GET OUT OF THE HOLD, KICKING HIS FEET TO PUSH AHREN FOURNIER OFF OF HIM, BEFORE ROLLING BACK UP TO HIS FEET-
James Peters: ‘RANDOM ACT OF VIOLENCE’!!!!!
James Peters: FROM AHREN TO TERRY!!!! THIS TIME IT’S AHREN’S TURN TO STEAL THE MOVES, AS HE HITS THAT CLAYMORE KICK RIGHT INTO TERRY’S JAW! HE TURNED HIM INSIDE OUT, AND THIS COULD BE THE END OF THE MATCH! AHREN FOURNIER CRAWLS OVER TOWARDS TERRY, AND HOOKS THE LEG! INTO THE COVER!
. . . // .,. ,..,.,.;.,::::
James Peters: TERRY CHAMBERS GETS THE SHOULDER UP!
Rich Russillo: BUT AT WHAT COST?? BECAUSE AHREN NOW GRABS HIM BY THE HAIR AND PICKS HIM UP, MAYBE HE ONLY STOLE THE FINISHER JUST TO KNOCK HIM DOWN! AHREN DIRECTS TERRY TOWARDS THE CORNER, BEFORE THROWING HIM STRAIGHT INTO THE RING POST!
James Peters: AND AS HE COLLIDES, A LOUD CRUNCHING SOUND IS HEARD! DID TERRY CHAMBER’S SHOULDER JUST COMPLETELY SHATTER??? DID AHREN BREAK TERRY’S ARM??? WE HAD SUSPECTED IT WAS HURT BEFORE, BUT THIS ONE FEELS DIFFERENT! TERRY’S SCREAM FEELS DIFFERENT! AS TERRY ROLLS OUT TO THE OUTSIDE, IT’S CLEAR SOMETHING’S UP! THE REFEREE IS GOING TO ATTEND ON HIM!
Rich Russillo: The referee has had to go out of his way to check on Terry Chambers, and usually when that happens, it’s not a very good sign! I won a fight once, and that’s what happened with the other guy; I know from experience this can’t be anything good for Terry.
James Peters: Definitely not, we just heard a crack in his arm! Something must be wrong in Terry’s arm right now! Doctors and officials have come down towards him, as they’re all looking at his arm. They’re all examining whether or not he should be allowed to compete or not, due to the injury that Ahren Fournier has done to the arm of Terry Chambers!
Doctor: (off-mic) Terry, are you willing to compete? Should we end this now-
Terry Chambers: (off-mic) NO! Don’t… don’t end it.
James Peters: Terry Chambers is now demanding for them to keep the match going, he believes he can win thi- WAIT! NO! AHREN, NOT NOW!
Rich Russillo: AHREN FOURNIER EXITS ONTO THE APRON, BEFORE HITTING A HUGE SUPERKICK TO TERRY CHAMBERS, WHICH SCATTERS ALL OF THOSE ATTENDING TO HIM; LET’S NOT FORGET WE’RE HAVING A MATCH HERE, THEY CAN’T JUST CALL IT OFF! TERRY HIMSELF SAID SO! HE SAID HE WANTED TO COMPETE, THEY CAN’T DO ANYTHING!
James Peters: AHREN FOURNIER PICKS UP TERRY CHAMBERS, BEFORE DRIVING HIM SHOULDER-FIRST INTO THE STEEL STEPS! THEY ALL TOPPLE OVER, AND TERRY IS CLEARLY IN EVEN MORE PAIN! AHREN IS LOOKING TO END THIS MATCH RIGHT NOW, AS HE SLIDES HIM BACK INTO THE RING!
Rich Russillo: AND THERE’S NO ONE THERE TO STOP HIM, TERRY CHAMBERS SPECIFICALLY TOLD THEM TO KEEP THE MATCH GOING, AND THEY DID! AHREN GRABS TERRY BY HIS HAIR AND LIFTS HIM UP, WHILST TERRY TRIES TO FIGHT BACK! CLUBBING FOREARMS TO THE BACK, OVER AND OVER AGAIN, BUT AHREN FOURNIER ISN’T PHASED BY IT!!!
James Peters: AHREN FOURNIER THEN SUPERKICKS TERRY CHAMBERS DIRECTLY IN THE HEAD! ‘STAR STRUCK’!!! BUT HE CATCHES HIM WITH HIS KNEE! HE COULD HAVE KNOCKED TERRY OUT, BUT INSTEAD HE’S LOOKING TO CONTINUE! HE PUSHES TERRY FORWARD, BEFORE HITTING ANOTHER SUPERKICK! AND ANOTHER! THREE ‘STAR STRUCK’ SUPERKICKS!!!
Rich Russillo: AND IF THAT WASN’T ENOUGH, AHREN FOURNIER THEN STUMBLES BACK INTO THE CORNER, AND PREPARES FOR THE FINISHING MOVE THAT COULD END IT ALL! HE STOMPS HIS FEET INTO THE GROUND, BEFORE CHARGING FORWARD AND LEAPING INTO THE AIR! ‘STORYBOOK ENDING’!!! THE CURB STOMP TO TERRY CHAMBERS! INTO THE COVER!!!
James Peters: SOMEHOW TERRY CHAMBERS MANAGES TO POP THE SHOULDER UP, WITH AHREN’S HALL OF FAME RING ON THE LINE, TERRY CHAMBERS POPS THE *WORKING* SHOULDER UP, BUT MAN, YOU HAVE TO WONDER WHAT’S GOING ON IN THE OTHER ONE!
Persephone: A whole lot of explosions.
Rich Russillo: Ahren Fournier crawls back to the corner, with the energy he has left, as Terry lies there unable to properly move! Ahren uses the ropes to stand back up, and he looks to go for the stomp again… but he stops? Why did he stop?
James Peters: Ahren Fournier is slowly approaching Terry Chambers, instead of hitting a second Curb Stomp which could win him the match… OH GOD, NOT THE ARM! HE GRABS THE ARM AND BEGINS TO LIFT TERRY TO HIS KNEES, BEFORE BENDING HIS ARM BACK INTO THE MAT! PALM RESTING AGAINST THE GROUND, AHREN IS GOING TO BREAK THE ARM SOME MORE!
Rich Russillo: BUT HE’S NOT DOING IT LIKE LAST TIME! AHREN FOURNIER GOES TO THE CORNER, AND STOMPS HIS FEET INTO THE MAT… OH MY GOD! NO! NO! AHREN FOURNIER CHARGES FORWARD!
Crowd: NO! NO! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO-
James Peters: ‘STORYBOOK ENDING’ STRAIGHT TO THE SHOULDER! BOTH TERRY’S HEAD AND SHOULDER COLLIDE WITH THE GROUND, KNOCKING HIM OUT, AND MAKING SURE THAT ARM IS BROKEN IF IT WASN’T BEFORE!!!!
Rich Russillo: AHREN FOURNIER COULD HAVE JUST ENDED TERRY CHAMBERS’ ARM FOR GOOD, AS HE HIT HIS FINISHING ‘STORYBOOK ENDING’ DIRECTLY *TO* THE SHOULDER, WITH THE COLLATERAL DAMAGE TO THE HEAD! AND WITH THAT, AHREN FOURNIER PUSHES TERRY CHAMBERS ONTO HIS BACK, AND HOOKS THE LEG!
Crowd: :lupe: :lupe:
Crowd: :lupe: :lupe: :lupe:
(DING! DING! DING!)
Bella Braxton: Here is your winner… “THE GOAT”… AHREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEN FOUUUUUUUUUUURNIEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEER!!!!!
(‘How You Like That’ by BLACKPINK hits the speakers as Ahren Fournier rolls off of a broken, and battered Terry Chambers, as he struggles to come back up to his feet. However, after a few seconds of resting and breathing, he uses the ropes to pull himself back up to his feet. He stands in the center of the ring, and the referee raises his arms; that’s when the boo’s, and the realization settles in. Ahren Fournier raises his arms, and the crowd absolutely hates that he came out on top.)
James Peters: I am… speechless! Earlier on in the match we saw what appeared to be an elbow injury for Terry Chambers, one he managed to seemingly solve by popping it back into place, and he kept going. But one swift kick to the shoulder later, and the match completely changed for the worse in Terry’s case. Ahren was able to capitalize, use his surroundings to further injure the shoulder, and as we just saw… Curb Stomp Terry Chamber’s arm straight into the mat – which at its core, is pure wooden planks.
Rich Russillo: Heading into this week, Ahren Fournier stated he was going to imprint his Hall of Fame ring into Terry’s face, he said he was going to do so much to him, but nothing compared to what he actually did. Whether it was intentional or not, Ahren Fournier managed to rip away the momentum Terry Chambers had in this match with a snap of his fingers; and that’s what true goats do.
(Ahren Fournier exits the ring through the ropes, as he approaches the podium he had placed his Hall of Fame ring onto, as Jennipurr stands there waiting for him. With a smug grin on his face, he grabs the Hall of Fame ring, and raises it into the air, before slowly putting it down onto his finger.)
James Peters: And that’s what they were fighting for. That’s the stakes for this match, and we now know that Ahren does deserve that ring after all. He was willing to do all of this deplorable shit just to keep that around his finger, the ring that means so much more than just a piece of jewelry. That’s the ring that cements him as one of the all time greats, and Ahren Fournier can truly be known… as the GOAT.
(Ahren Fournier would begin to walk up the ramp, as he extends his arms to the side of his body, as pyro goes off behind him. Continuing to cement his legacy here in EAW, cementing himself as the self-proclaimed GOAT, Ahren Fournier walks up the ramp, whilst medical attention is seen treating Terry Chambers. With the two differences in atmosphere, and the crowd unable to process what had just happened, Pain For Pride XIV fades out to commercial break.)
(A commercial for free beta Discord banners featuring Jake Smith begins to air: “can you try i couldn’t”)
(The scene opens up backstage, and the fans begin to cheer as the first thing shown is a focused MITSUBACHI in his locker room, getting ready for his big Interwire Championship match tonight. MITSUBACHI is looking at the mirror, giving himself words of encouragement when suddenly a knocking sound is heard on the door, which obviously catches MITSUBACHI’s attention.)
MITSUBACHI: Not right now, please. I have an Interwire Championship tonight I have to prepare for, I need to stay focused.
(The knocking doesn’t stop. Instead it just gets louder, which annoys MITSUBACHI.)
MITSUBACHI: I don’t want to be interviewed right now, goddamn it!
(MITSUBACHI walks away from the mirror, and he’s frustrated knowing someone has the nerve to bother him while he’s preparing for one of the biggest matches of his career. MITSUBACHI walks up to the door, ready to tell off whoever it is constantly knocking, but when he opens the door, a more puzzled look appears on his face.)
Komatsu Ogawa: MITSUUUUU!!! 😍🥰😩
(MITSUBACHI is confused, because for as long as he’s been back Komatsu Ogawa has been nowhere to be seen. Ogawa on the other hand looks as happy as always, excited to finally be able to talk to MITSUBACHI again.)
MITSUBACHI: :wtf: Where have you been? Why are you here? How did you get here?
Komatsu Ogawa: Oh come on, did you really think I’d miss the biggest match of your career? You’re going to become Interwire Champion tonight! There’s no way I was going to miss you decimate Bronson Daniels and end his title reign! He doesn’t deserve that Championship when there’s someone as talented as you on the roster who has yet to become Champion. To answer your question though, I was in Japan working on my craft, trying to be like the greatest Elitist ever which is you of course. It’s not easy being as amazing as you MITSU, but I’ve been doing everything I could just so I could one day be even a fraction as talented as you! I’ve been competing in the most barbaric, most dangerous, most terrifying matches possible to show how strong and resilient I am. I’ve been in regular deathmatches, barbed wire deathmatches, I mean I would’ve been here sooner but the anus explosion deathmatches really took a toll on me. But man I’m just so excited to see you, I’m excited to be here. I’M JUST SO EXCITED WOOO, DO YOU FEEL THE ADRENALINE?!? DO YOU FEEL THE HEAT RAISING INSIDE OF YOU?!? ARE YOU READY TO BEAT BRONSON?!???
MITSUBACHI: Anus what :comeagain:???? Actually nevermind that but are you okay? Why are you so excited, you’re kind of scaring me.
Komatsu Ogawa: I thought you’d never ask, man. See usually the loser of Anus Explosion deathmatches take weeks, even months to recover. It’s probably the most dangerous match type there is after all, but thanks to Lipovitan D11 my anus healed up in weeks! But wait folks, there’s more to it! It keeps you focused, it keeps you energized. Without Lipovitan D11, I don’t even think I’d be here right now! I’d probably be out still recovering from my injuries, but now look at me! I’m better than ever! The blood never stops pumping and with this man you can not only beat Bronson and become the greatest Interwire Champion ever but you can compete in every single match on every single day of the week with just one bottle! Listen Mitsu I know you’ve been lost without me and I heard you in here trying to focus and what not-
MITSUBACHI: How did you manage to hear that :dahell:
Komatsu Ogawa: That’s just the thing man, it helps heighten ALL of your senses! You’ll know Bronson’s next move before *he* even knows it. This stuff right here is what helped my great uncle protect the leaf village from an evil man with red hair and piercings! Lipovitan D11 is so powerful, you have no idea how useful it’ll be! Bronson Daniels is doomed, all you have to do is follow my lead and before you know it you’ll be on top of the world! It starts with the Interwire Championship, then the World Championships, then before you know it this company will BELONG to the great MITSUBACHI! This is the perfect plan! Once you drink this it’s only a matter of time until there’s statues made in your honor! There’s no way this could go wrong, that title is yours! I labeled it as MITSU’s Secret Stuff just so no one knows what it is and can use it for their advantage like you’re about to do.
(MITSUBACHI can see the excitement on Ogawa’s face, but he’s still pretty skeptical about what he’s saying, and extremely confused.)
MITSUBACHI: Well first of all we have cameras all over us and everyone in the world is probably watching this. And second of all I’m not drinking that stuff! My match is tonight and I don’t even know what’s in it! What if it gets me sick or something? I can’t do that. I’ll be fine. I’m going to win the Interwire Championship, I don’t need Lipo-whatever that is!
Komatsu Ogawa: See I knew you would say that, but come on man you need it. This is the biggest match of your career, we can’t go around taking chances just because you don’t know the ingredients! You’re fighting for the Interwire Championship, and who knows if the higher ups will grant you another opportunity if you were to come up short? This company screws you over all the time because they know how great you are! You can’t let them get what they want again! You’re the great MITSUBACHI, and I’m here to do whatever I can to make sure YOU get the success you deserve! Having Lipovitan D11 is almost like having superpowers! No, it’s better! There’s nothing like Lipovitan D11 on the planet! You have to trust me!
(MITSUBACHI actually begins to think about what Ogawa is saying, because if there’s one thing he’s right about, it’s that this is Pain for Pride and he’s in a Championship match, and you never know when you’ll get another opportunity like that.)
Komatsu Ogawa: This is Pain for Pride! IT’S PAIN FOR PRIDE MITSU AND THIS DRINK HERE WILL HELP YOU INSERT THE PAIN AND FEEL THE PRIDE WOOOO! YOU CAN DO IT MITSU! COME ON! I’ve slipped this into the drinks of anyone I saw with any Mitsu gear on so even the Mitsumaniacs can feel the same thing I am and the same thing you will once you take a sip!
MITSUBACHI: :comeagain: Why would you do that? But fine. Fine, I’ll take just a sip and you better not be wrong about this either Ogawa. I’m trusting you.
Komatsu Ogawa: Oh come on man, have I ever led you down the wrong path before?
MITSUBACHI: I’m just going to pretend you didn’t ask me that. Just give me the drink please.
(Ogawa passes MITSUBACHI a bottle that reads “MITSU’s secret stuff”. MITSUBACHI shakes his head and reluctantly takes a sip of the Lipovitan D11, and immediately after drinking it you can see him feel the same thing Thanos did after gaining the last infinity stone.)
Komatsu Ogawa: DO YOU FEEL IT YET MAN? DO YOU FEEL THAT ENERGY INSIDE OF YOU? THE LIPOVITAN D11!?!?
MITSUBACHI: I FEEL IT MAN, I FEEL IT! WOOOO I’M HYPE! THIS IS GREAT! THIS IS AMAZING! I FEEL INCREDIBLE! I WILL WIN! THERE’S NO WAY BRONSON CAN BEAT ME TONIGHT! THERE’S NO WAY ANYONE CAN BEAT ME EVER! NOT LIKE THIS! I’M UNSTOPPABLE NOW! NOBODY CAN STOP THE GREAT MITSUBACHI!
Komatsu Ogawa: THATS RIGHT BROTHER WITH LIPOVITAN D11 NO ONE CAN STOP YOU! THAT INTERWIRE TITLE IS YOURS AND SO IS EVERYTHING ELSE IN THIS COMPANY! SO BRONSON WHAT YOU GONNA DO MAN WHEN MITSU AND ALL HIS MITSUMANIACS RUN WILD ON YOU?!?
MITSUBACHI: YEA WHAT HE SAID!!! WITH LIPOVITAN D11 I AM IN THE BEST SHAPE OF MY LIFE!! LETS FUCKING GO WOOOOO!!!
(The commotion continues as MITSUBACHI and Ogawa begin trading chops, trying to get each other as hype as they possibly can while the camera man slowly backs out of the locker room, probably scared for his life. From there the camera begins to fade away from the area.)
( The camera cuts back to the Sofi Stadium in Los Angeles, California where the crowd is hyped for the next match. Suddenly the match graphic appears on screen as the crowd erupts into cheers for what is about to come. )
( DING! DING! DING! )
Gina Romano: The following contest is CHAINED FURY II and it is scheduled for ONE FALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!!!!!!!
Gina Romano: In this match both men will be chained together in the ring by the wrists!! Around the ring will be a chain cage! Inside that will be chain ropes! The turnbuckle pads have all been removed! Also… all the chains shall be wrapped within barbed wire!!!
Gina Romano: AND IT IS FOR THE VACANT EAW NEW BREED CHAMPIONSHIP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
( Metallica – Sad But True (Instrumental) hits!!! )
( Bright lights shine across the entire arena as Ronan Malosi walks out to the stage holding a wad of cash. He shows off his money to the crowd as he makes his way to the ring prepared to compete in this championship match. As he opens the door to the cage he accidentally cuts himself on a barbed wire cage. )
Ronan Malosi: (off-mic) What the fuck that hurt. Nah I’m not going to wrestle in this thing.
Referee: (off-mic) Oh yes you are :ufdup:.
Ronan Malosi: (off-mic) :noah:
Deadprez: Last year at Pain for Pride Ronan Malosi interrupted the EAW Hall of Famers. This year he has the opportunity to become one himself by winning the EAW New Breed Championship!
Eve: :whoa: Let’s not get ahead of ourselves Dead. That may indeed happen but this would only be the first step of many to get there. However, it is indeed an important step as many felt that Ronan Malosi’s short Interwire Championship reign was rather underwhelming and maybe with a second chance at a title he will have better results this time.
Gavin Kirkland: What is underwhelming is that I don’t see Alissa Brady out here. Imagine having her out here with all this barbed wire! Just imagine the potential for her to get all caught up in it with the barbs tearing off all her clothes! :ahh:
(Ronan Malosi is seen glaring at Gavin Kirkland from within the cage as if he knows what he was talking about.)
( ‘The Only Thing They Fear is YOU’ from Mick Gordon hits!!! )
( Ryan Wilson emerges onto the stage sipping from a “World’s Best GM” coffee mug as he makes his way down to the ring. In his other hand is a long black package that he sets down in the ring as he enters the cage. As he gets there he opens the cage and hops inside. He throws the coffee mug at Ronan’s head scalding him with piping hot coffee leaving burns on his bald head. )
Ronan Malosi: (off-mic) AYO!!
( Ronan Malosi suddenly lunges forward grabbing the referee’s shirt to wipe the hot coffee, blood, and glass shards from his forehead.)
Deadprez: Well as Gina announced this match has no disqualifications. And also it hasn’t even started yet. That being said I enjoy watching the referee fuck around with Ronan.
Gavin Kirkland: You would like watching that.
Deadprez: #PainForPrideMonth :rainbow_flag: In all seriousness though Ryan Wilson has never won a championship ever in EAW despite his long career.
Gavin Kirkland: And he never will :wow:
Eve: Well tonight he is looking to change that by defeating his former tag team partner Ronan Malosi for the New Breed Championship. Last week on Showdown Ronan beat the shit out of him so you have to imagine that Ryan is looking for some payback tonight on the grandest stage of them all! He will humiliate Ronan in front of the world!
Deadprez: Not if Ronan has anything to say about it. These men are going to have to bleed if they want the gold! Let’s get it!
Eve: Well this feud was supposed to be over a long time ago. I thought it ended several times but it just kept going and seemingly is never ending. I thought about hyping this up as the grand conclusion of their rivalry but at this point I don’t even know if I can believe that. So I guess we will just say this could very well be the concluding chapter in the legendary Feud of the Year tier Ryan Wilson vs. Ronan Malosi rivalry!!!
Gavin Kirkland: Hopefully the rivalry ends with a happy ending. Aka Alissa leaving both of these bozos for me!!! :blessed:
Deadprez: Ronan is a very mysterious presence here in EAW. He rarely posts videos even if his opponents post videos. So ultimately we don’t really know that much about him. He didn’t even post any this whole week even for Pain for Pride!
Eve: That’s not true Dead he posted several videos but then Ryan Wilson would post immediately after and sometimes two or three more before Ronan even posted his next one. But the Ronan ones were there if you looked hard enough I promise you.
Gavin Kirkland: Was Alissa in any of those videos? Wait don’t tell me you will ruin the surprise!
( Ronan Malosi and Ryan Wilson glare at each other with intense hatred from across the ring as the referee is shown holding the EAW New Breed Championship high in the ring showing the whole world the prize they are about to fight for. )
Gina Romano: THE FOLLOWING IS FOR THE EAW NEW BREED CHAMPIONSHIP AND IT IS SET FOR ONE FALL!!! CHAINED FURY II!!! Introducing first… one of the challengers from Cape Town, South Africa but residing in Long Island, New York weighing in tonight at 280 pounds…
Gina Romano: “THE HEIR OF HOT TAKES”
Gina Romano: RONANNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN MALOSIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Gina Romano: And his opponent… the other challenger… from Montréal, Québec, Canada weighing in at 220 pounds…
Gina Romano: “MISTER Wilson”
Gina Romano: RYANNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN WILSONNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(Both men are shown standing in the ring looking at each other.)
Crowd: THIS IS AWESOME! :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: THIS IS AWESOME! :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:
( DING! DING! DING! )
(The referee begins to remove the EAW New Breed Championship from the ring as the barbed wire chains are attached to the wrists of both men.)
Ronan Malosi: (off-mic) Ow, not so tight!!!
Ryan Wilson: (off-mic) I’m sure you aren’t used to tight considering Aliss-
Deadprez: We are underway as Ronan Malosi charges in at Ryan Wilson and slaps the shit out of him! Wilson falls back as Malosi is unloading on his opponent! Wilson shoves Malosi away… but Malosi charges in with a Big Boot kicking Ryan’s head off!
(Ronan Malosi stops the referee as he is shown trying to remove the New Breed Championship from the ring.)
Ronan Malosi: (off-mic) I will take this! :russ:
Eve: Ronan Malosi smashes the New Breed Championship across the skull of Ryan Wilson who has been busted wide open here tonight! Ronan on the assault from the getgo doing intense damage! He doesn’t want this match to last long!
Gavin Kirkland: Damn that ten foot chain tying them together is really LONG. When I chain my bitches to me I make sure to keep them up close and personal. Maybe I should try that out with Alissa she is probably backstage all by herself and lonely :mjlit:
Deadprez: Nah you staying right here. Just as Ryan Wilson is not going anywhere as Ronan Malosi stomps down hard on his throat making him cough up blood. Ronan now choking the life out of Ryan using that barbed wire chain connecting them as Wilson begins bleeding from the neck as well the pieces of barbed wire begin to puncture into his skin. Ronan now picking Ryan up and he throws him back first into the barbed wire chain cage! Ryan screams out in pain as he falls off and falls back into the corner holding his back in pain. Ronan charges in with hard thrusts into the corner as he drives Ryan into those unprotected turnbuckle chains! Ronan taking full advantage of all the weaponry available to him in this match!
Eve: Ronan Malosi bashes Ryan Wilson’s face into the unprotected chain of the turnbuckle causing Ryan to collapse in the corner as Ronan pushes his boot into Ryan’s face stomping away and crushing the easily breakable bones of his face and nose. Ronan looks out to the crowd as he raises up his arms for all to worship his dominance.
Ronan Malosi: (off-mic) :blessed: !!!
Gavin Kirkland: Ronan Malosi now lifting up Ryan Wilson out of the corner before immediately dropping him with a powerful Discus Lariat. Ryan getting dominated early on in the match. Like I said he will never win a title in EAW! He should quit and give up at this point!
Deadprez: Ronan Malosi turns back towards Ryan Wilson as he locks in a headlock wrapping the chain connecting them around Ryan’s neck. Ryan falls down to his knees as Ryan tries to shove him off of him to keep fighting. Ryan fighting back now throwing his weight back into the chain so that it cuts into Ronan’s skin as much as his own. It looks like Ryan is making headway as he forces Ronan to release the hold and falls over on the ground. Ryan yanks the chain pulling Ronan back towards him before punching him hard in the jaw! Ronan collapses to the mat! Ryan with the cover!
Eve: No Ronan Malosi kicks out! That would have been unfortunate if he had been pinned after only one punch. Ryan Wilson will have to do more work however to win this match it would seem. Ryan pulls Ronan back up but immediately Ryan kicks him with some hard foreward kicks to the guts knocking Ronan over before hitting a leaping Guillotine Leg Drop across Ronan’s throat. Ryan back into the cover.
Gavin Kirkland: Kick out with authority by Ronan Malosi! See he may have almost taken a three count before but that was probably out of shock as much as anything. He still has a lot left in the tank!
Deadprez: Ryan Wilson immediately hops back on that assault grind punching the shit out of Ronan Malosi’s head with all kinds of style. You know he is styling on him and Ryan is relentless up in here. Sometimes I think that Ryan just likes causing pain to a motherfucker like Ronan but Ronan is gonna take them shots to the skull and make a comeback like only real ones do. Ronan throws Ryan off of him and gets back up to his feet. But a Superkick to the face from Ryan Wilson! But Ronan doesn’t go all the way down! So Ryan Wilson runs the ropes… RUNNING KNEE STRIKE TO RONAN WHO IS ON HIS KNEE! OH SHIT THAT BE A WHOLE LOTTA KNEE!
Eve: No! Ronan Malosi counters catching the running Ryan Wilson as he charges towards him and throws him backwards with a Wheelbarrow Slam! What force! What intensity! Ronan taking Ryan down as he starts to roll out of the ring but unfortunately for him it is a barbed wire cage and he just rolls into the barbed wire and hurts himself. Ronan pulls Ryan back up and immediately takes him down with a quick Suplex before transitioning across into the cover.
Gavin Kirkland: Ryan Wilson gets the shoulder up! Ronan Malosi grabs Ryan’s arm and begins to wrap the steel chain around it cutting into his limb! The blood begins to flow from out of that arm as Ryan bites into Ronan’s fingers to force him to let go and unravel the chain. But Ronan just grabs Ryan by the hair and slams him face first into the exposed turnbuckle chain! Ryan left unconscious and bleeding out on that cold unforgiving steel as Ronan backs up… he charges in… STINGER SLLASH TO THE CORNER!!!
Deadprez: But Ryan Wilson moves out the way faster than me when my ex showed up last night. Bitches be wildin’. But that is unrelated to this match. Ryan moves and Ronan runs head first into the exposed steel turnbuckle! Damn he really hurt himself with that one and he is all tied up in the turnbuckle and Ryan just yanks him back with the chain causing Ronan’s arm to nearly be torn off with the intensity of that yank. Ryan is a savage out here and he grabs Ronan from behind as he gets up and connects with a Dragon Sleeper Reverse DDT. He keeps the Dragon Sleeper applied after the move connects before yanking his opponent back up and flipping Ronan up and over him with a Dragon Sleeper Suplex! Ryan is a true dragon in this thing and he is go-
Eve: Ronan Malosi out of nowhere connects with the Cyclone Crash!!!
Deadprez: NO! Ryan Wilson moves out of the way and the move does not in fact connect! Ryan maneuvers himself around behind Ronan Malosi and whips him in the back with the barbed wire chain! Ronan turns around with a pained look upon his face as Ryan tries to hit him with a backhand slap. But Ronan ducks! Ronan picks up Ryan Wilson and drives him down with a thunderous Running Power Slam! Damn! Sometimes it is easy to forget just how strong Ronan actually is! Ronan grabs Ryan by the back of his neck yanking him up before throwing him back with a Belly to Belly Suplex with Ryan landing back first against the side of the barbed wire chain cage. Ryan peels himself off the barbed wire as his back is now covered in scars and blood and cuts. I hope he got his tetanus shot! That barbed wire looks a little rusty to me!
Gavin Kirkland: Neither of these men appear to be rusty however as Ronan Malosi walks across the ring and picks up the long black package that Ryan Wilson brought into the ring earlier for his entrance. He appears to be confused as he reaches down and begins to unzip it… but Ryan is back up and punches Ronan hard in the face causing him to drop it! Ryan smashes Ronan’s head into the cage as Ronan goes down holding his sliced up cut face. Ryan grabs the long black package as he begins to unzip it himself. What could it be?!?!?
Eve: Ryan Wilson pulls out a barbed wire chain covered hockey stick! Ryan raises the weapon high above his head as he prepares to go in on Ronan and beat the shit out of him! Ryan raises the hockey stick ready to strike.
Eve: RYAN WILSON BREAKS THE HOCKEY STICK OVER RONAN MALOSI’S SKULL! THE HOCKEY STICK IS BENT BY THE IMPACT CRUSHING RONAN! RYAN BASHES RONAN’S BRAINS IN AGAIN! AND AGAIN! AND AGAIN! RYAN TAKING OUT YEARS OF FRUSTRATION ALL CAUSED BY RONAN ON RONAN!!! RYAN HAS LOST CONTROL AND HE IS GOING TO KILL RONAN WITH THAT HOCKEY STICK! IT HAS BEEN COMPLETELY BROKEN AS HAS BEEN RONAN’S BRAINS!!! RONAN COLLAPSES TO THE MAT COMPLETELY DECEASED!!!
Deadprez: Ryan Wilson throws the hockey stick down on the mat as he begins to stomp on the unconscious Ronan Malosi! Go for a pin my man! You got this thing won! But all Ryan cares about is delivering pain to Ronan! He pulls up Ronan and kicks him hard in the gut before taking him down with an electrifying DDT! Ryan now goes for the cover!
Eve: Ronan Malosi just barely kicks out! I thought that was it! Ryan Wilson pulls Ronan Malosi up and grabs him around the head! Looking for a DDT! He drags Ronan over to the remains of that hockey stick as he is about to do something very Canadian and very destructive to Ronan. Ronan is in position and Ry-
Gavin Kirkland: NO! RONAN MALOSI COUNTERS TOSSING RYAN WILSON UP OVER HIS SHOULDERS WITH THE BACK TOSS ONTO THE BROKEN HOCKEY STICK! THE WOOD IMPALING INTO THE BACK OF RYAN WILSON AS HE SCREAMS OUT IN PAIN! HOLY SHIT HE JUST GOT STABBED OUT HERE AND IS BLEEDING OUT IN THE RING!!!
(Ronan Malosi is shown smiling sadistically down at the pain that Ryan Wilson is suffering as he reaches down and violently yanks the wood out from the back of Wilson.)
Deadprez: This sick freak Ronan Malosi just enjoying the pain of Ryan Wilson and he is completely deranged! But he is not done!!! Ronan pulls up Ryan and drops him with a Snap DDT onto the barbed wire chain hockey stick on the mat! The referee now trying to get in there to check on Ryan but there is not much he can do in a situation like this. This match will end when we reach a pinfall or submission… not even death can stop this match!
Gavin Kirkland: What if both of them die before a pinfall or submission?
Eve: Then the match will never end :wow:
Deadprez: Ronan Malosi suddenly yanks the chain dragging Ryan Wilson’s lifeless body across the ring leaving a red stain on the mat as he drags him towards the corner. Ronan makes his way up to the top rope as Ryan is down there right below him.
Ronan Malosi: You are a sad pathetic little man Ryan! Now I will crush you like a bug under my boot! Hahaha!
Eve: RONAN MALOSI LEAPS OFF THE TOP ROPE WITH A SWANTON BOMB!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: But Ryan Wilson moves out of the way!!! Ryan showing signs of life despite all the blood loss! Ronan Malosi failed once again!!! Ryan now whipping the fallen Ronan with that steel barbed wire chain connecting them as he is relentlessly keeping Ronan down! But Ronan dodges the chain as he gets back up… Ryan goes in…
Deadprez: RYAN WILSON CONNECTS WITH THE MIC DROP ON RONAN MALOSI! THE FINISHER HAS CONNECTED! THE MATCH IS OVER!!!
Eve: RYAN WILSON GOES FOR THE COV-
Gavin Kirkland: Wait why did he stop?!?!
(Suddenly Ryan Wilson and the entire audience turns to look up at the top of the ramp where a woman has appeared, bringing out an old woman in a wheelchair.)
Eve: Wait, is that? It’s Alissa Brady and she has brought Ryan Wilson’s mother up to the stage tied up on a wheelchair! What is this dumb bitch doing out here with that kind old lady?!?!?
Gavin Kirkland: Now watch your language Eve! Alissa Brady is a blond goddess! :blessed: And that is no kind old lady! That is Magdalena Wilson one of the foulest nastiest old hags that I have ever met!
Deadprez: Well if you remember your EAW history Magdalena Wilson was present at ringside for the first ever Chained Fury match and it appears that she has been brought back for the second. However, this time she is here unwillingly and her mouth has been gagged by Alissa Brady.
Alissa Brady: (off-mic) Hello Ryan. Please be kind to my sexy babe Ronan! I plan to put him to work later on tonight so try not to take all of his energy will you?!? <3
Ryan Wilson: (off-mic) :wtf:
Eve: Ryan Wilson ignores Alissa Brady instead going for the pin on Ronan Malosi but with the distraction it may be too late!
Alissa Brady: (off-mic) I wouldn’t do that Ryan!
Gavin Kirkland: Ryan Wilson really said fuck this bitch.
(Suddenly Magdalena Wilson manages to break through the gag on her mouth.)
Magdalena Wilson: (off-mic) Do not worry about me! Do what must be done!
Gavin Kirkland: But Ronan Malosi kicks out!!! Alissa Brady is not happy that Ryan Wilson did not listen to her.
Alissa Brady: (off-mic) Do you know who I am? Do you know what position I hold at Applebee’s? I am management bitch and you will do what I say!
(Ryan Wilson is shown giving Alissa Brady the middle finger in the ring as she watches on looking so appalled.)
(Alissa Brady grabs the handles of Magdalena Wilson’s wheelchair and runs full speed towards the side of the stage.)
Eve: NO! STOP! SHE DOESN’T DESERVE THIS!!!
(Alissa Brady keeps on running even faster as she shoves Magdalena Wilson in her wheelchair off the side of the stage! She goes flying nearly 20 feet in the air as her wheelchair soars off the stage before crashing down below.)
Deadprez: HOLY SHIT! WHAT THE HELL?!?!? SHE KILLED HER! MAGDALENA WILSON IS LIKE 150 YEARS OLD AND SHE JUST GOT DROPPED LIKE 150 FEET OFF THE STAGE! SHE IS LYING IN A POOL OF BLOOD DOWN THERE WE NEED HELP OUT HERE! THIS IS A WOMAN WHO SURVIVED COVID! SHE SURVIVED THE SPANISH FLU! SHE SURVIVED THE BLACK DEATH! BUT SHE MAY NOT SURVIVE THE PLAGUE THAT IS RONAN MALOSI AND EVERYONE ASSOCIATED WITH HIM!!!
(Officials are shown coming out from backstage to check on Magdalena Wilson as Ryan Wilson is shown trying to leave the cage. However, he is unable to as he is chained to Ronan Malosi in the ring. Ryan tries to break the chain so he can go check on his mother but there is no escape.)
Eve: Ronan Malosi is back up in the ring as well!
Gavin Kirkland: I have been up since Alissa came out as well. :mjlit:
Eve: Sit back down.
Ronan Malosi: Hehehe classic Ryan Wilson! Trying to run away I see! What a little pussy! I know that is the only woman in your life unlike me who scores with hot blond bombshells on the daily! Don’t worry you will have plenty of time to check up on her later when you go back to your home… in yo momma’s basement! :mjlol2:
Deadprez: Ryan Wilson slaps the shit out of Ronan Malosi who is dropped down to his knees from the force of the slap! Ryan has had enough of Ronan’s shit and he hits him with the backhand to put him in his place! RYAN WHIPS RONAN ACROSS THE FACE WITH THAT BARBED WIRE STEEL CHAIN! Ryan whips him again and again causing severe lacerations across the face of Ronan! Ronan’s face covered in blood making it almost look as if he is crying blood which honestly he might be. Ryan wraps the chain around Ronan’s neck! He is strangling him out here and he is going to kill him! Ryan may be going too far but Ronan has made this even more personal than it was before! Ryan climbs up to the top rope as he is dragging the strangled Ronan up with him! Holy shit he is trying to hang Ronan using that chain! This is going too far!
Alissa Brady: (off-mic) NO STOP! I LOVE THAT MAN! ONLY I GET TO CHOKE HIM!
Eve: Well that was definitely too much information but Ryan Wilson has to consider if Ronan Malosi actually deserves this… Does anyone deserve this?!?!?!
Gavin Kirkland: Ayo did she really just say that? Imma need her to repeat that…
Deadprez: Wait Ryan Wilson suddenly drops Ronan Malosi from off the top turnbuckle! Ronan lands face first as Ryan is perched up high! He leaps off the top… We rarely seen Ryan using high flying moves but for Pain for Pride it looks like he will make an exception!
Eve: RYAN WILSON OFF THE TOP WITH A SHOOTING STAR PRESS!!! HOLY SHIT WHAT PERFECT FORM!!!
Gavin Kirkland: HE GETS ALL OF IT! RYAN WILSON CONNECTS WITH THE SHOOTING STAR PRESS ON RONAN MALOSI! RYAN WITH THE COVER! HE IS GOING TO DO IT! HE IS GOING TO WIN HIS FIRST CHAMPIONSHIP!!!
Deadprez: WAIT WHAT THE HELL IS THAT?!!??!?! AT THE TOP OF THE CAGE?!?!?!
Gavin Kirkland: IT’S ALISSA BRADY!!! OH MY GOD SHE’S ON TOP OF THE CAGE! THAT’S DANGEROUS! SOMEONE NEEDS TO TAKE HER DOWN AND PROTECT HER!!!
Eve: ALISSA BRADY LEAPS OFF THE CAGE TO BREAK UP THE PIN!!! ALISSA FLYING DOWN FROM ABOVE BUT WILL SHE MAKE IT IN TIME?!?!
Gavin Kirkland: NO!!! RYAN WILSON MOVED OUT OF THE WAY!!! ALISSA CAME CRASH LANDING DOWN UPON RONAN MALOSI INSTEAD!!!
(Ronan Malosi is shown coughing up blood from the impact of his girlfriend Alissa Brady landing down upon him from the top of the cage. A replay is also shown.)
Eve: Ryan Wilson grabs Alissa Brady by the hair and now she is trapped in the cage as well! He slams her face first into the cage as he grinds her facial features all over the barbed wire chains!
Gavin Kirkland: NO STOP! Well… at least her face isn’t really the attractive part… I MEAN NO THIS IS CRUEL!!!
Deadprez: Ryan Wilson grabs Alissa Brady pulling her face off the cage barbs as he drags her back into the ring…
Eve: RYAN WILSON DROPS ALISSA BRADY WITH THE MIC DROP!!! HOLY SHIT HE JUST KILLED HER!!! HE KILLED HER LIKE SHE KILLED HIS MOTHER!!!
(The crowd is shown giving a standing ovation for the death of Alissa Brady as Ryan Wilson gives them a proud bow inside the ring.)
Gavin Kirkland: Ryan Wilson now back to pin Ronan Malosi as he looks to capitalize on Alissa Brady’s massive failure by handing Ronan even more Ls than he has taken both tonight and in life!
Eve: Ronan Malosi somehow kicks out! MY GOD HOW THE FUCK DID HE DO THAT?!?!?! MY MIND IS BLOWN! I THOUGHT WE HAD A NEW CHAMPION!
Gavin Kirkland: Ryan Wilson is truly incapable of winning a championship in EAW. He is so cursed that even when he hits moves that could end Hall of Famers he can’t even get the pin on Ronan Malosi. He could bash Ronan’s brains in with a sledgehammer until all that is left is mush and Ronan would still kick out just because it is Ryan pinning him.
Deadprez: Well I don’t know about all that Gavin but Ryan Wilson is not yet giving up! But he is wondering what else it is going to take to put Ronan down! Ryan pulls Ronan up in the corner and delivers a punch to Ronan Malosi who I am not sure is even aware of where he is for that punch to register as an assault on his person. Wait! Ronan fires back with a punch of his own! Ryan with a back chop to the chest! Ronan fires back with one of his own! Possibly fighting on pure instinct Ronan is mimicking Ryan here as they trade chops in the ring! RYAN! RONAN! RYAN! RONAN! RYAN! RONAN!
Eve: Ryan Wilson appears to gain the advantage as he begins to repeatedly chop Ronan Malosi in the corner lighting up his chest as Ronan tries to turn around to escape and climb up the turnbuckle as he makes his way up the cage! But Ryan will not allow that! Ryan leaps up to the top rope and grabs Ronan from behind… GERMAN SUPLEX OFF THE TOP ROPE THROWING RONAN ACROSS THE RING!!!
Gavin Kirkland: BUT RONAN MALOSI LANDS ON HIS FEET!!! RYAN OFF THE TOP ROPE WITH A FLYING CROSSBODY! THAT CONNECTS!!! THE COVER!!!
Deadprez: Ronan Malosi kicks out with authority throwing Ryan Wilson up in the air! Ronan with a sudden second wind here as he stomps his way back up to continue to fight even harder and stronger.
Eve: Ryan Wilson and Ronan Malosi trading punches now in the ring… Ryan tosses Ronan off towards the ropes Ronan screams in pain as his back collides with the barbed wire ropes and he is unable to run back across the ring because he is stuck to the barbs! Ryan lunges forward as he wraps the chain connecting them around Ronan and the ropes tying him to the cage wall! Ronan is trapped as Ryan is choking him out and bashing him into the cage wall! There is nowhere to go for Ronan! Forward is pain! Backwards is pain! Pain is his only option here at Pain for Pride!
Gavin Kirkland: AND ALISSA BRADY IS STILL DEAD!!! OH GOD SOMEONE NEEDS TO CHECK ON HER! THAT SOMEONE SHOULD BE ME! BUT NO WAY IN HELL AM I GOING INTO THAT HELL HOLE OF A CAGE! THE PUSSY CAN’T BE THAT GOOD!
Deadprez: Calm the fuck down Gavin. Just focus on the match you are driving away viewers again. Ronan Malosi is fighting back straining against the ropes with all of his power as he fights Ryan back. He headbutts Ryan knocking him back as he makes his way sideways trying to unravel the chain around him. Ronan kicks at the turnbuckle repeatedly… and eventually it breaks! Ronan breaks the turnbuckle as the barbed wire chain “ropes” fall off and collapse to the mat freeing Ronan. However, this causes the rest of the cage attached to that side of the ring to become loose as well! That looks dangerous like it could collapse at any moment! Ryan Wilson charges in! Ronan Malosi sidesteps as Ryan runs into the loose cage wall!!
Gavin Kirkland: Speaking of loose walls :mjlit:
Eve: NO! NOT JUST TO GAVIN BUT ALSO RYAN WILSON STOPS JUST IN TIME BEFORE HE COLLIDES WITH THE CAGE WALL AND BREAKS THE STRUCTURE! RYAN WILSON TURNS AROUND!!!
Gavin Kirkland: :lupe: !!!!!!!!
Deadprez: SPEAR! SPEAR! SPEAR!!! RONAN MALOSI SPEARS RYAN WILSON THROUGH THE CAGE WALL AS IT COLLAPSES BACKWARDS AT RINGSIDE! BOTH MEN BUST THROUGH THE CHAINS OF THE CAGE AS RONAN DRIVES WILSON THROUGH THE WALL ITSELF TO THE FLOOR BELOW! ONE SIDE OF THE CAGE HAS BEEN COMPLETELY DESTROYED AND THERE IS BROKEN CHAINS SNAPPING AND BARBED WIRE EVERYWHERE!!!
Crowd: HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT!
Gavin Kirkland: Complete and utter destruction has been left here tonight in whatever arena this is here tonight!
Deadprez: The Sofi Stadium. We are in Los Angeles. Aside from that it looks like the match might be over as both men are motionless. Both women as well as we cut to the stage where officials are shown loading Magdalena Wilson onto a stretcher to take her backstage. As she goes she raises up her arm towards the ring sending her spirit out towards her fallen son.
Magdalena Wilson: (off-mic) Please my son… make me proud…
(Magdalena Wilson is taken backstage as the officials exit the area not even coming back to check on Alissa Brady who is shown lying face down ass up in the ring.)
Deadprez: Both men are shown slowly making it back to their feet on the outside of the ring as it looks like this match will somehow continue. Ryan Wilson connects with a knee strike hitting Ronan Malosi hard in the gut. Ronan fires back with an uppercut catching Ryan Wilson in the jaw as he staggers back landing back first on the fallen cage wall. Ronan climbs up on top of him as he begins delivering a series of mounted punches until Ryan tosses him off and Ronan rolls off onto the floor outside the ring the barbed wire cutting into his skin the entire way as he rolls to safety. Ryan follows him and jumps off the broken cage and slams Ronan face first into the ring steps surrounding the cage. Ronan Malosi’s nose is busted open even more as it flows down his face which has been covered in the crimson mask and he can barely even see through the thick red blood covering his entire face.
Eve: Ryan Wilson grabs a steel chair from ringside as he smashes it on Ronan Malosi’s head on the steel steps! No! Ronan moves out of the way and the chair ricochets back and hits Ryan in the head instead! Ronan tackles Ryan taking him down but Ryan wraps the chain around Ronan’s neck choking him out on the outside with a Triangle Choke!
Referee: (off-mic) Would you be interested in tapping out here tonight fine sir?
Ronan Malosi: (off-mic) NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
Deadprez: Ronan Malosi is fighting it hard! He refuses to give up here tonight as the prestigious New Breed Championship is on the line! The New Breed Title has never been more prestigious than it is right now having been vacated by the greatest New Breed Champion of all time! Andre Walker!
Gavin Kirkland: Ryan Wilson is forced to break the hold after Ronan Malosi elbows him in the head enough times as he reaches under the ring and throws a handful of thumbtacks in Ryan’s face to scare him off! He grabs the chain and bashes Ran in the face with it to take him down before driving his knee down hard into Ryan’s face. Ronan pulls Ryan up and throws him back onto the fallen cage wall with a Snap Suplex before picking Ryan up and powerbombing him into the chains and barbed wire with as much power as he can manage!
Ronan Malosi: (off-mic) AND NEWWWWWW!!! :blessed: :blessed: :blessed:
Crowd: BOOOOOOOOOOO!!! YOU SUCK! YOU SUCK! YOU SUCK!
Ronan Malosi: (off-mic) No I don’t! You are looking at a champion! :drakelike:
Crowd: HEY FUCKFACE EAT THIS!!!!
(A member of the crowd angrily booing Ronan suddenly stands up and throws something towards him.)
Eve: OH NO IS THAT?!?! Our fans are getting out of control with their hatred of Ronan…
Deadprez: It is! Ronan Malosi looking on in terror as that fan just hurled a water balloon and it is flying towards him at high speed! Move out of the way!!!
(Ronan Malosi covers his face as he turns around in preparation for the impact.)
Gavin Kirkland: THE WATER BALLOON CONNECTS RIGHT ON THE SHINY BALD FOREHEAD OF RONAN MALOSI AS IT EXPLODES INTO A TORRENT OF WATER DRENCHING HIM COMPLETELY!!!
Eve: RONAN MALOSI IS IN SHAMBLES AS HE IS LITERALLY SHAKING FROM WHAT JUST HAPPENED TO HIM!!!
Deadprez: RYAN WILSON CHARGES IN SHOVING RONAN MALOSI BACK INTO THE RING AS HE GOES FOR THE COVER!!! THIS COULD BE IT!!
Gavin Kirkland: RONAN MALOSI KICKS OUT! SOMEHOW HE GOT THE SHOULDER UP I CAN’T BELIEVE IT! I THOUGHT THE MATCH WOULD BE OVER RIGHT THERE!!!
Eve: Calm down Gavin… it was just a water balloon obviously he was going to kick out. I’m just surprised he didn’t kick out sooner.
Gavin Kirkland: You just don’t understand Eve. I hope for your sake you never will understand…
Deadprez: Ryan Wilson not finished just yet! He pulls Ronan up… MIC DROP!! THIS IS IT! TIME FOR A NEW CHAMPION!!!! HE GETS ALL OF IT! THE COVER!!!
Eve: I CAN’T BELIEVE IT! RONAN MALOSI KICKED OUT OF THE MIC DROP! RYAN WILSON HAS TO BE WONDERING WHAT HE HAS TO DO HERE!!! HE PULLS RONAN UP! HE’S GOING FOR ANOTHER MIC DROP! HE’S JUST GONNA FUCKIN’ DO IT AGAIN!
Ryan Wilson: STAY DOWN BITCH!!!
Deadprez: RYAN WILSON HAS RONAN MALOSI UP FOR THE MIC DROP!!! IT’S OV-
Eve: RONAN MALOSI COUNTERS INTO A SMALL PACKAGE!!!
Deadprez: NO! RYAN WILSON KICKS OUT AT THE LAST MINUTE!!! BOTH MEN BACK UP AS THEY ARE FIGHTING RELENTLESSLY IN THE RING!!! RONAN WITH A THUMB TO THE EYE!!! WHAT A CHEAP SHOT THERE FROM RONAN!!!
Eve: Ronan Malosi pulls Ryan Wilson up… what is he going for here this isn’t a move that he… wait…
Gavin Kirkland: RONAN MALOSI CONNECTS WITH THE MIC DROP ON RYAN WILSON!!! HE HAS STOLEN HIS FINISHER AND HE IS GOING TO STEAL THE MATCH JUST LIKE I AM GOING TO STEAL ALISSA BUT RONAN IS GOING TO STEAL THE TITLE! THIEVES EVERYWHERE!!!
Deadprez: THE COVER! IMAGINE HOW HUMILIATING IT WILL BE FOR RYAN WILSON TO LOSE ON THE GRANDEST STAGE OF THEM ALL TO HIS OWN FINISHING MOVE!!!
Gavin Kirkland: ANOTHER KICKOUT! NEITHER MAN WILL GIVE UP HERE! THIS IS A VERY SERIOUS AND IMPORTANT MATCHUP TO BOTH MEN AND THEY WILL NOT LOSE! NEITHER MAN CAN AFFORD TO LOSE!!
Eve: Ronan Malosi back up as he stares out into space wondering just what it will take to put down Ryan Wilson! He pulls him up and throws him into the exposed corner… He charges in! But Ryan with a boot up sending Ronan back! Ryan charges in…
Deadprez: DEATH-RO CONNECTS!!! RONAN MALOSI GOING ALL IN WITH HIS BRUTAL ASS FINISHER!!!
Gavin Kirkland: NO! RYAN WILSON FLIPS OVER RONAN MALOSI AND SUPERKICKS HIM IN THE BACK OF HIS HEAD! RONAN WHIRLS AROUND…
Eve: RYAN WILSON CONNECTS WITH DEATH-RO!!! RYAN USING RONAN’S FINISHER ON HIM TO END THE MATCH!!! RONAN BEING HANDED AN L HERE TONIGHT WITH HIS OWN MOVE!! PAYBACK IS FAIR GAME!!!
Eve: RONAN MALOSI SOMEHOW GETS THE SHOULDER UP! HOW THE FUCK IS THIS MATCH STILL GOING ON?!?!?!
Deadprez: Ryan Wilson cannot believe it! He will not believe it! He is standing back up on his feet and is begging Ronan Malosi to stand up. Ronan slowly backs to his feet as Ryan raises his arms awaiting Ronan to get back up… HE KICKS RONAN HARD IN THE GUT…
Gavin Kirkland: GAME OVER CONNECTS!!! RYAN WILSON WITH THE STUNNER AS RONAN MALOSI IS SENT FLIPPING ACROSS THE RING FROM THE IMPACT OF THE MOVE! RONAN’S BODY CONVULSING FROM THAT STUNNER AS RYAN ROLLS OVER TO MAKE THE PIN!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Gina Romano: HERE IS YOUR WINNERRRRR… and the NEWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW EAW NEW BREED CHAMPION…. RYANNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN WILSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(‘The Only Thing They Fear is YOU’ from Mick Gordon plays across the arena as the referee brings the EAW New Breed Championship into the ring for Ryan Wilson.)
Eve: The boyhood dream has come true for Ryan Wilson here tonight as he has won his first ever championship here in EAW!!!
Gavin Kirkland: And handed Ronan another L in the process! Now Alissa will most definitely leave him for me!
Deadprez: Through blood sweat and tears Ryan Wilson has come out on top and proven all of his doubters wrong! He worked hard for this moment for years and it has finally paid off! Ryan Wilson has proven that no matter how long it takes or how many opportunities have passed you by you can’t ever give up because if you work hard enough one day it will all pay off! Congratulations to the homie Ryan Wilson has ascended to the mountaintop and is the new face of the New Breed Division heading into the new season!
Eve: Ronan Malosi left crushed, battered, and beaten and I am not sure he has even fully realized the extent of what has happened but as it sets in he will have to come to terms with the L he now holds. However, he put up one hell of a fight and it took Ryan Wilson absolutely everything he had to come out of this with the victory! Ronan is going to be one pissed off son of a bitch and I wouldn’t want to be the one who has to deal with him in the aftermath of this!
(Ryan Wilson is shown climbing up to the top of the cage and holding the New Breed Championship in the air as he gets a standing ovation from the crowd. Ryan makes it to the top of the cage and throws the championship up high gleaming off the arena lights as he celebrates his monumental victory here tonight in Los Angeles.)
(The camera cuts to a commercial advertising for hiring EAW creative team members. Please provide evidence of 10 years of Reddit experience for consideration.)
( A highlight video is played, showcasing the epic match between Mr. DEDEDE and Ronn Bank$ that took place a decade again at Pain 4 Pride. )
( A decade ago a match four years in the making happened between two legends of EAW. The main event of Pain 4 Pride with HRDO as the special guest referee, CM Banks went into action against Mr. DEDEDE in what was an already personal rivalry up to this point, leading up to this very highly anticipated match between the two in an Extreme Rules bout. )
( The recap shows moments from the match as it starts off strong. In an instant it spills out to the outside in a very back and forth competition, with Banks throwing DEDEDE through the barricade along with DEDEDE turning the tides nearly immediately afterwards sending Banks plummeting down to the ground off the announcers table with a back body drop. Fighting through the pain both of them have endured the fight continues to spill out to the outside even after their attempts to bring the fight back into the ring, with DEDEDE leaping over the ropes and taking Banks down with a flying senton, along with the Chairman also leaping off the steel steps and planting Banks through the announcers table with a tornado DDT. )
( In what became a bloody match up between the two of them their will continued to push them on, with both of them going to the extreme as the match is coined bringing weapons into the mix along with DEDEDE taking Banks down to the mat with a vicious Spear. But it wouldn’t be enough as Banks managed to get the shoulder up afterwards. Banks manages to turn the tables and sends an assault to DEDEDE with a steel chair which is abruptly stopped by DEDEDE taking him down with the Edge-O-Matic. DEDEDE goes for what should be his match finisher in the form of his patented Wings of Hell on the top rope with the steel chair, but in the end it’s Banks that catches him on his shoulders and connects with not one, but two Go To Retirements to get the victory. After the match Banks continues his assault on DEDEDE which is stopped by the special guest ref HRDO chokeslamming Banks to the ground. The recap ends with DEDEDE managing to recover as he gives his respects to HRDO with a handshake. )
( Suddenly, the video stops and the camera shot widens to show Ronn Banks standing in front of a backstage monitor that he has just switched off. A lot has happened since Banks faced Mr. DEDEDE back at Pain 4 Pride, and most of it is stuff that can never be undone. The relationship between the two men has obviously deteriorated to the point of no return, and that has clearly been on display in recent weeks. Banks has a thoughtful look on his face as he sits the monitor remote down and puts his hands in his pockets. A few seconds later, he feels a hand clamp down on his shoulder. )
???: Hey man.
( Banks’ face breaks into a smirk as HRDO walks into the scene. The EAW Vice President looks around, taking in the various things going on backstage, and shakes his head. )
HRDO: You look like you’re ready for part two, tonight.
Ronn Banks: :wow: Nah. It’s not about me. I just see a lot of potential in Adam Lucas, and how the fans have kind of embraced him as their own, and it makes me proud. EAW was founded on the very idea that people could start their careers here and prosper as long as they worked hard and trusted the process. So many people have become larger than life figures, and despite the ups and the downs, EAW has always found a way to keep itself right at the top of the pack as well. It just makes me proud knowing how many all-time greats have stepped through these doors and become Hall of Famers. I just see that kind of potential in Adam Lucas and I don’t want him to become another person Ryan steps on and uses just for his own personal gain.
HRDO: :mjgrin: Ryan Adams, use someone for his own personal gain?
Ronn Banks: :mjgrin:
HRDO: Look, we both know Ryan better than anyone, and we absolutely know what he’s capable of. Even after all these years, he remains a deadly, driven force hellbent on doing whatever he can to make sure his pockets are stuffed. I don’t even hate him for it, because look at how far it’s gotten EAW. Next year, we will have our 15th Pain for Pride. Sometimes I just can’t wrap my head around it.
Ronn Banks: It was also that greed and borderline negligence that almost ran this company into the ground.
HRDO: But the man’s business savvy and bank account purchased your start up and here we all are.
( Banks didn’t have much to say about that because HRDO was right. )
???: Well this is a nice reunion.
( Mr. DEDEDE steps into the shot looking like a snack as usual. He’s dressed in a brand new all white version of his ring gear, which makes him look flawless, and strangely ethereal all at the same time, and he can’t help but laugh seeing Banks and HRDO standing together. He looks at Banks and then looks around, almost as if he is looking for someone else to show up. )
Mr. DEDEDE: Where’s your shadow? Adam’s been attached to your teat more than my infants have been to their wet nurse in recent weeks.
Ronn Banks: I’m sure he’s getting ready somewhere for his championship defense. Interesting twist in bringing back the Hardcore Championship, might I add. I find it kind of funny that even after all these years, and the fact that you single-handedly caused my removal from this company that you would still be holding a grudge over the fact I undermined your championship reign.
Mr. DEDEDE: It’s not really even about me continuing to hold a grudge. I just felt like the time was right to bring the Hardcore Championship back into the fold. I’m not the one who made the call to get rid of it in favor of the PURE Championship, but the PURE Championship suited the holder of it at the time when it was brought back. I don’t think it has much relevance given the current landscape of EAW today. That championship has had nothing but a collective group of flops passing it around for the last year or so, and Adam Lucas is no exception. I still can’t wrap my mind around this obsession you have developed with him, mind you. Makes no sense. He’s a common man. Is he a chip off the old block? I think we both know there’s something deeper involved in this. You found out the hard way when you returned to this company that you no longer had what it takes to be relevant, whereas I’m someone who has always stood the test of time. You found the first person involved in a feud with me to link up with because you can’t let go of what happened back at the Pain for Pride Festival.
( Banks squares his shoulders because truthfully, his patience with DEDEDE is running out. The two long-time rivals end up nose-to-nose. )
Ronn Banks: If me wanting to make sure you don’t screw over another uprising star and ruin their career before it can even get started means I’m still salty about the Pain for Pride Festival, then I guess I’m salty. You said yourself you went after Adam because you viewed him to be weak. You targeted him for the PURE Championship because you thought he would be someone who would just roll over for you. That hasn’t been the case has it? Because with or without me being around, Adam Lucas would still go out there and beat you tonight. I’m that confident in his chances.
Mr. DEDEDE: A fool’s words.
( Banks goes to reply, but HRDO steps in. )
HRDO: You just got finished telling me that this wasn’t your fight, so let it go.
( He turns away from Banks and looks at Mr. DEDEDE. )
HRDO: You just need to worry about what is going to happen in that ring.
( HRDO takes a hold of Mr. DEDEDE and turns him around in the other direction, almost as if to send him on his way. DEDEDE looks at Ronn and shakes his head, before walking off. At least he knows tonight that he has a chance to get the last laugh. From there, Pain for Pride fades away from the area. )
( The camera cuts to the next match graphic. )
(The camera cuts to Gina Romano in the ring.)
Gina Romano: THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SCHEDULED FOR…ONE FALL!!
Crowd: ONE FALL!!
Gina Romano: AND IS FOR THE EAW INTERWIRE CHAMPIONSHIP!!
(“Il Vento D’oro” by Yugo Kanno plays to a loud pop as Mitsubachi makes his way out from the curtain, sporting a Deadpool inspired attire as he makes his way to the ring, clearly focused on the task at hand, that being taking the Interwire Championship.)
Gina Romano: Introducing first! Hailing out of Sōka, Saitama, Japan, weighing in at 187 pounds…HE IS THE ARTIST…MITSUBACHI!!
Eve: The challenger, Mitsubachi, is walking in with one hell of a chip on his shoulder. He’s got eyes watching him from all ends, and he plans on using this to make sure people end their underestimating of him.
Deadprez: The number one person on that list he looks to shut up: Bronson Daniels.
Eve: But that’ll be easier said than done, Bronson isn’t gonna be looking to relinquish that title so soon after he just got it.
Deadprez: That may be true, but this is Mitsu’s opportunity to win his first title on the grandest stage of em all, opportunities like this are farce, so don’t think he’s gonna let this slip through his fingertips either.
(Mitsubachi settles in the ring as he awaits the arrival of his opponent. But before that, the lights begin to dim out as a narrator is heard speaking.)
Narrator: The Elite Player.
(Shots are shown of Bronson’s big matches performances, including Odyssey, Pain for Pride, Road to Redemption, King of Elite, and his most recent match with Jamie O’Hara.)
Narrator: The Legendary.
(Shots are now shown of Bronson winning at Odyssey, becoming New Breed Champion at Pain for Pride, making his entrance at Road to Redemption, getting rapped down to the ring by 21 Savage at King of Elite, tapping out Ronan Malosi, and finally raising the Interwire Title up in the air.)
Narrator: THE GAME CHANGER.
(Shots now show Bronson’s performances at events like Grand Rampage 2020, Odyssey, Pain for Pride, and then shots of him defending the New Breed Title against talent such as Alexis Chambers and SEBAS, followed up by his amazing rookie performances at Road to Redemption and King of Elite, him finally winning his second title in one season at Grand Rampage, then him staring down at Jamie on Showdown.)
Narrator: Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome..Saint Pablo!
(‘Saint Pablo’ by Kanye West plays Bronson out as he decks a gold and white attire, matching with the Interwire Title around his waist, and very reminiscent of Godspeed in CW’s ‘The Flash.’ Daniel’s is also shown sporting a crown on his head.)
Gina Romano: And his opponent! Residing in Brooklyn, New York, weighing in at 210 pounds…HE IS THE EAW INTERWIRE CHAMPION…THE GAME CHANGER…BRONSON DANIELS!!
Eve: I’ll tell you what, if there’s one thing Bronson knows how to do, it’s make an entrance, and what an entrance that was, Bronson really taking us down memory lane.
Deadprez: Yeah, since practically day one, Bronson has showed himself to have a bright future here in EAW, harnessing immense potential, and you see that championship gold around his waist, I’d say he’s using said potential.
(Daniels stands in his corner, now taking his entrance gear off. However, when he takes off the crown, he reveals his hairstyle to be that of a two strand twist. Bronson hands his title over to the ref, who raises it in the air and hands it off before signaling for the bell.)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Eve: The bell has rung and this match is officially underway, Bronson Daniels – the champion, Mitsubachi – the challenger, both men are gonna bring it all to the table here if they wanna walk out with that Interwire beauty, that’s for certain. But now, Mitsubachi and Daniels lock up in the center of the ring, Bronson gets the early advantage, making a go behind for a rear waistlock, Mitsubachi looks to pry those hands of Bronson apart, he manages to do so slightly before slipping behind Daniels for a rear waistlock of his own, hoping to squeeze the life out of our champion. Daniels issues a back elbow to the face of Mitsubachi, buying himself time to slip back behind him for another rear waist lock.
Deadprez: Neither man stays dominant for long in the waistlock as they keep switching positions back-and-forth, Mitsubachi straps another waistlock on, and Daniels wises up, backing Mitsubachi and subsequently himself into the corner. The referee is gonna have no choice but to get involved here.
Referee: ONE! TWO! THREE!
Deadprez: We receive a clean break from Mitsubachi, who removes his hands from around the waist of Bronson, allowing him to create distance between the two by walking over to the opposite corner. Mitsubachi and Bronson both continue the feeling out process here, circling each other before once again locking up, this time Bronson backs Mitsubachi into the corner. Mitsu shifts the momentum, however, holding Bronson in that corner with the collar and elbow now. The referee gets involved for a second time, backing Mitsubachi off of Daniels, who shoves Mitsubachi back, showing there’s some clear hostility between the two, and how couldn’t there be after the back-and-forth we saw between them this week?
Eve: Tempers are certainly beginning to flare as now we witness a more aggressive collar and elbow tieup between the two. And- OH! Mitsubachi throws a knee to the midsection of Daniels, doubling him over long enough for Mitsu to strap on a standing side headlock. But Bronson is quick to drive him back into the corner, throwing punches to the ribcage of Mitsu while he has him trapped in between him and those turnbuckles. Mitsubachi clubs down on the back of Daniels, hoping to fight his way out of the corner. But Daniels favors that back as he stands himself up straight, BUT LOOK AT DANIELS, WHO BEGINS TO UNLOAD WITH STRAIGHT FOREARMS TO THE FACE OF MITSUBACHI!
Deadprez: MITSU FIRES BACK WITH A FOREARM OF HIS OWN, BUT BRONSON JUST SHRUGS IT OFF, GOING RIGHT BACK ON THE ATTACK WITH A BARRAGE OF STRIKES BEFORE SENDING MITSUBACHI ACROSS THE RING! BRONSON CHARGES IN AFTER MITSUBACHI, WHO SLINGSHOTS HIMSELF UP AND OVER BRONSON IN THAT CORNER, CAUSING HIM TO COLLIDE CHEST FIRST WITH THAT TOP TURNBUCKLE BEFORE STUMBLING RIGHT BACK INTO A RELEASE GERMAN SUPLEX FROM MITSUBACHI! BRONSON GETS UP TO ONE KNEE, FAVORING THAT NECK OF HIS, BUT MITSUBACHI RUSHES IN TO TAKE HIM DOWN WITH A SIDE HEADLOCK!
Eve: And now Mitsubachi is firmly in control, dictating the pace of this contest, and if he continues to do that, we may be seeing a new champion walk outta here. But not if Bronson Daniels has any say so, powering up to his feet while trapped in that headlock, and backing Mitsubachi up against the ropes, looking to rebound him off, but Mitsubachi is just a step ahead, landing another side headlock takedown in the center of the ring. BUT BRONSON DANIELS ROLLS HIM OVER TO BOTH SHOULDERS, LOOKING TO STEAL ONE HERE!
Eve: Mitsubachi swings the pendulum back into his favor as he returns to a seated position for that grounded side headlock. Bronson Daniels looks to get himself out of this predicament, using those legs of his to capture Mitsu’s head into a headscissors, and Daniels makes sure he has it strapped on tight, leaving no space between his legs and the head of his opponent. Mitsu begins his escape with a front neck bridge, and he headstands himself in between the legs of Daniels, WHO SPIKES MITSU ON HIS HEAD WITH A MINI PILEDRIVER THERE, CREATIVE OFFENSE FROM DANIELS, WHICH SEEMS TO BE PAYING DIVIDENDS AS MITSUBACHI CLUTCHES AT HIS HEAD WHILE LYING ON THE MAT!
Gavin Kirkland: I know that’s gonna sting when Mitsubachi wakes up in the morning.
Deadprez: Bronson stands a stunned Mitsu up, taking him down with a side headlock himself now, and Bronson Daniels tightens that headlock, really making sure to wrench it in, putting some strain on that neck of Mitsubachi, who starts to bring himself back up to a vertical base. Mitsu throws some shots to the body of Bronson before trying to rebound him off the ropes in a slight role reversal here, but Bronson Daniels holds onto that headlock, dropping both men down to one knee. Mitsubachi manages to stand himself back up to try his hand at freeing himself outta this headlock again, this time Mitsubachi steps out on the apron through the middle rope, his upper body hangs inside in the ring, however, as Bronson refuses to let go of that side headlock. The referee begins his count, asking for a clean break.
Referee: ONE! TWO! THREE! FO-
Eve: And Bronson gives it to him. BUT ALSO BRONSON PULLS MITSUBACHI OVER THE TOP ROPE AND BACK INTO THE RING WITH ANOTHER SIDE HEADLOCK! MITSUBACHI TRIES TO BOUNCE BRONSON OFF THE ROPES, BUT BRONSON HANGS ON! MITSU TRIES TO BOUNCES BRONSON OFF ANOTHER SET UP OF ROPES..BUT BRONSON HANGS ON! Mitsu tries ANOTHER set of ropes, this time Bronson goes bouncing off! BUT DANIELS COMES BACK WITH A SWIFT JUMPING HIGH KNEE UPON REBOUND! MITSUBACHI IS KNOCKED DOWN, AND DANIELS SCRAMBLES INTO THE COVER!
Deadprez: KICKOUT! Mitsubachi finds himself regrouping in the corner now after that close call. Bronson is in pursuit of Mitsubachi, however, AND HE STOMPS HIM DOWN TO A SEATED POSITION IN THAT CORNER BEFORE BEING FORCED TO CREATE SOME SEPARATION BY THE REF! The referee finally lets go of Bronson, WHO CHARGES IN AT MITSUBACHI WITH A CORNER BASEMENT DROPKICK! BRONSON DRAGS MITSU OUT OF THE CORNER BY HIS FOOT AND MAKES ANOTHER QUICK COVER!
Eve: ANOTHER KICKOUT FROM MITSUBACHI! But Bronson Daniels isn’t fazed as he sits Mitsubachi up for a PENALTY KICK TO THE SPINE! AND BRONSON LOOKS TO FOLLOW THAT UP WITH A SNAP SUPLEX, FLOATING OVER FOR A PINFALL VICTORY!
Gavin Kirkland: Bronson Daniels continues to stay on top of Mitsubachi with fast and frequent pinfalls, showing just how much he’s looking to walk outta this thing with his hand raised.
Eve: Mitsubachi gets brought back to his feet by Bronson before getting sent into the corner with a strong Irish whip! MITSU COMES STUMBLING OUT OF THE CORNER AND WALKS RIGHT INTO A ROUNDHOUSE KICK FROM BRONSON, WHICH PUTS HIM ON WOBBLY LEGS! BRONSON DANIELS HOISTS HIM UP FOR ANOTHER SUPLEX, BUT MITSU SLIPS OUT THE BACK THIS TIME AROUND! MITSUBACHI TURNS BRONSON DANIELS TO FACE HIM! BRONSON SHOVES MITSU BACK INTO THE ROPES, CAUSING HIM TO REBOUND OFF! BUT MITSU COMES BACK WITH TYRANT REVENGE ON BRONSON!!!
Deadprez: NO! BRONSON DUCKS UNDERNEATH IT! MITSU TURNS AROUND AND BARRELS HIMSELF TOWARDS BRONSON! BUT DANIELS CATCHES THE ARM OF MITSUBACHI BEFORE WRESTLING HIM DOWN TO THE MAT, AND A FUJIWARA ARMBAR FROM DANIELS IS LOCKED IN! MITSUBACHI SCREAMS OF AGONY ARE HEARD THROUGHOUT THE SOFI STADIUM AS BRONSON CONTINUES TO WRENCH FARTHER AND FARTHER BACK! THE HAND OF MITSUBACHI GETS RAISED IN THE AIR, ALMOST CONTEMPLATING A TAP OUT HERE!
Eve: BUT MITSUBACHI DOESN’T GO THROUGH WITH IT, GETTING HIS FOOT ON THE BOTTOM ROPE INSTEAD! Bronson Daniels releases the armbar as soon as this is made aware to him by our referee. Bronson gives Mitsubachi some space, Mitsu gets up to all fours before being once again pursued by Daniels who stomps Mitsu right in the back of his head! Daniels brings ‘The Artist’ back to his feet before backing him up against the corner with repeated punches to the face, Mitsubachi is certainly looking a bit glossed over here with this flurry of offense by Daniels, which doesn’t look to be ending soon as Bronson attempts to send Mitsu into the opposite corner! BUT MITSU REVERSES LAST MINUTE, SENDING DANIELS INTO THE CORNER INSTEAD!
Deadprez: MITSU LOOKS TO FINALLY BEGIN MOUNTING SOME SERIOUS OFFENSE HERE AS HE CHARGES DANIELS IN THE CORNER! BRONSON ELEVATES MITSU OVER THE TOP ROPE, BUT HE ENDS UP CATCHING HIMSELF ON THE APRON! DANIELS NOTICES THIS AND ATTEMPTS TO CLOTHESLINE HIM OFF! BUT MITSU DUCKS UNDERNEATH, AVOIDING IT! DANIELS ATTEMPTS ANOTHER CLOTHESLINE FROM INSIDE THE RING! BUT MITSU AGAIN, DUCKS UNDER AND AVOIDS IT! AND MITSUBACHI ENDS UP ON THE OFFENSIVE WITH AN APRON FOREARM THAT CREATES SPACE BETWEEN THE TWO!
Eve: MITSU TRIES TO GET BACK INTO THE RING THROUGH THE MIDDLE ROPE! BUT BRONSON DANIELS DROPKICKS HIM TO THE OUTSIDE! MITSUBACHI WAS CERTAINLY A BIT CAUGHT OFF GUARD THERE AS HE TRIES TO GET HIS BEARINGS TOGETHER, MOVING BACK TO HIS FEET! BUT WHILE DOING SO, BRONSON IS SCALING TO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE! LOOK OUT MITSUBACHI!
Deadprez: BRONSON COMES CRASHING DOWN ONTO MITSUBACHI WITH A DIVING TRUST FALL, YOU DONT SEE OFFENSE LIKE THAT EVERYDAY! A STUNNED MITSUBACHI GETS ROLLED BACK INTO THE RING BY BRONSON! BUT MITSUBACHI CONTINUES TO ROLL, GOING ALL THE WAY TO THE OPPOSITE SIDE OF THE RING, CATCHING HIMSELF ON THE APRON! BRONSON LOOKS TO RETRIEVE HIM, ATTEMPTING A SUPLEX TO THE INSIDE! BUT MITSUBACHI FIGHTS THAT FROM HAPPENING, TRYING TO DEADWEIGHT BRONSON, WHO GETS PUNCHES TO THE RIBCAGE FROM MITSUBACHI!
Gavin Kirkland: MITSU ATTEMPTS A SUPLEX TO THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING NOW, AND IF BOTH MEN LAND OUT THERE, IT WONT BE PRETTY FOR EITHER OF THEM! BRONSON REALIZES THAT AND USES HIS LEVERAGE TO FIGHT IT OFF AS WELL! MITSU LIFTS BRONSON UP IN THE AIR AGAIN, BUT INSTEAD OF CRASHING TO THE OUTSIDE, BRONSON GETS BROUGHT OVER THE TOP ROPE AND TO THE APRON! MITSUBACHI USES A ROPE ASSISTED ENZIGURI TO STUN DANIELS! BRONSON NOW GETS SHOVED BACK FIRST INTO THE LED RINGPOST, KNOCKING HIM DOWN TO THE FLOOR!
Eve: MITSUBACHI DROPS DOWN FROM THE APRON AND GRABS AHOLD OF BRONSON DANIELS NOW, STANDING HIM UP BEFORE CHUCKING HIM INTO THE BARRICADE, BOTH THE BACK OF BRONSON’S HEAD AND BACK IN GENERAL HIT HARD! MITSUBACHI LIFTS HIM BACK UP BEFORE SENDING HIM INTO THE BARRICADE ONCE MORE, AND YOU CAN FEEL THE MOMENTUM FINALLY START TO SHIFT! MITSUBACHI PULLS BRONSON BACK UP TO HIS FEET! HES GONNA CHUCK HIM INTO THAT BARRICADE FOR A THIRD TIME…OR SO WE THOUGHT! BRONSON COUNTERS, SENDING MITSUBACHI INSTEAD!
Deadprez: DANIELS TAKES A FEW MOMENTS TO RECOVER BEFORE GOING AFTER MITSUBACHI, WHO USES THE TIGHTS OF DANIELS AS LEVERAGE TO PULL HIM FACE FIRST INTO THE BARRICADE NOW! AND MITSU SHOWS SOME AGGRESSION, REPEATEDLY BANGING THE BACK OF DANIELS’ HEAD OFF SAID BARRICADE! MITSUBACHI IS ONLY ABLE TO BRING DANIELS UP TO A KNEEL BEFORE HE STARTS TO FINDING BACK AGAIN! BRONSON IS THROWING SHOTS TO THE ABDOMEN, HOWEVER, THEY’RE WEAK AND NOT DOING MUCH DAMAGE TO HIS OPPONENT, WHICH ALLOWS MITSU TO CRACK BRONSON IN THE HEAD WITH A HARD ROUNDHOUSE KICK THAT CRUMPLES HIM DOWN TO THE MAT!
Gavin Kirkland: MITSUBACHI ROLLS BRONSON UNDER THE BOTTOM ROPE NOW, DRAPING HIM OVER THE APRON, FACING BRONSON DOWN! MITSU GETS UP ON THE APRON AND LEAPS DOWN ON THE BACK OF DANIELS HEAD WITH A KNEE STRIKE! DANIELS SLOWLY BEGINS TO SLUMP DOWN TO THE FLOOR BEFORE BEING SENT ALL THE WAY BACK INTO THE RING BY MITSUBACHI, WHO POSITIONS THE TOP OF BRONSON’S HEAD ALMOST UNDER THE BOTTOM ROPE! MITSU SLINGSHOTS HIMSELF OVER THE ROPE WITH A CORKSCREW PLANCHA ONTO THE STOMACH OF DANIELS, UNDOUBTEDLY TAKING THE WINDS OUT OF HIS SAILS WITH THAT MOVE! MITSUBACHI GOES FOR A COVER, HOOKING ONE LEG INSTEAD OF BOTH, COULD BE A HUGE MISTAKE!
Eve: KICKOUT BY BRONSON DANIELS, WHO ISNT LOOKING TO RELINQUISH HIS TITLE OVER THAT EASY! MITSUBACHI TAKES A MOMENT TO CONTINUE ANY FURTHER ATTACK AS HE STAYS IN A SEATED POSITION ON THE MAT, SHOWING THE WEAR AND TEAR THIS MATCH HAS TAKEN ON HIM THUS FAR! BUT AS HE DOES THIS, BRONSON USES THE ROPES TO ASSIST HIM IN GETTING BACK UP, BUT HE ONLY GETS TO ONE KNEE BEFORE MITSUBACHI IS UP AND DELIVERS A STERN KICK TO THE RIBS OF DANIELS, WHOSE FACE SHOWS THE PAIN HE IS IN OFF OF THAT!
Deadprez: MITSUBACHI STANDS DANIELS UPRIGHT BEFORE SENDING HIM INTO THE CORNER WITH A PUNCH! MITSUBACHI TAKES A FEW STEPS TOWARD BRONSON, WHO EXPLODES OUT OF SAID CORNER WITH A KICK TO THE MIDSECTION, RIGHT ON TARGET! BUT MITSUBACHI ANSWERS BACK WITH ANOTHER PUNCH TO THE FACE OF DANIELS, WHO AGAIN, DOESNT TAKE THAT LYING DOWN WITH ANOTHER KICK TO THE ABDOMINAL REGION! BUT THERES ANOTHER PUNCH FROM MITSUBACHI! DANIELS FIRES BACK WITH PUNCHES OF HIS OWN NOW, FINALLY FIGHTING HIS WAY OUTTA THAT CORNER AND TO THE MIDDLE OF THE RING!
Eve: BRONSON ATTEMPTS TO WHIP MITSU INTO THE CORNER NOW! BUT MITSU COUNTERS, WHIPPING BRONSON STERNUM FIRST INTO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE! BRONSON HAS ONE HAND ON THE TOP ROPE TO AVOID FALLING DOWN OFF THE IMPACT! BUT THAT MIGHT BE A HUGE MISTAKE AS MITSUBACHI DELIVERS A RUNNING CORNER DROPKICK TO THE BACK OF DANIELS, CRUSHING HIM IN BETWEEN HIS FEET AND THE TURNBUCKLE! MITSUBACHI GETS BACK UP AND PULLS BRONSON BACK INTO A SINGLE KNEE BACKSTABBER, DANIELS ROLLS IN PAIN AS A COVER IS MADE BY MITSUBACHI, HOOKING BOTH LEGS THIS TIME!
Deadprez: MITSU NARROWLY GETS THAT SHOULDER UP OFF THE MAT! BRONSON PICKS HIM UP NOW AND CHUCKS MITSU INTO THE CORNER, MITSUBACHI FALLS DOWN TO ONE KNEE OFF IMPACT! DANIELS WRAPS HIM IN A CRAVATE AND SNAPMARES HIM DOWN TO A SEATED POSITION BEFORE LOCKING IN A REAR CHINLOCK! Bronson Daniels is just wearing down Mitsubachi with this hold, leaving nowhere for him to go in the center of the ring. A mixed crowd begins to will Mitsubachi on in the fight of getting up to his feet, and hopefully breaking free of Bronson’s clutches!
Eve: AND THOSE FANS ARE SUCCESSFUL BEGINS WORKS UP TO A STANDING POSITION BEFORE THROWING ELBOWS INTO THE GUT OF DANIELS! MITSUBACHI BREAKS FREE AND RUNS OFF THE ROPES THAT ARE IN FRONT OF A DOUBLED OVER DANIELS! BUT BRONSON DROPS THE REBOUNDING MITSUBACHI WITH A BACK ELBOW! DANIELS SCRAMBLES INTO A QUICK PINFALL!
Gavin Kirkland: MITSUBACHI KICKS OUT! Daniels is clearly starting to grow a bit frustrated here, at this point, probably wondering what he has to do when it comes to putting his opponent away. Daniels may find his answer as he uses a front facelock to stand Mitsu up. BUT MITSUBACHI BREAKS FREE AND THROWS AN ELBOW SMASH THAT STAGGERS BRONSON! ANOTHER ONE HAS HIM REELING! MITSUBACHI WHIPS DANIELS INTO THE CORNER! BUT DANIELS GETS HIS FOOT UP ON THE MIDDLE TURNBUCKLE, BRINGING HIS MOMENTUM TO A HALT BEFORE SMASHING MITSU IN THE FACE WITH A BACK ELBOW AS HE RUNS INTO IT!
Eve: MITSUBACHI GETS SENT INTO THAT CORNER NOW! BRONSON RUNS FULL STEAM AHEAD- ONLY TO GET CAUGHT WITH A BOOT FROM MITSUBACHI, WHO SITS HIMSELF ON THE TOP TURNBUCKLE AND MAKES A TORNADO DDT ATTEMPT! BUT BRONSON SHOVES HIM OFF LAST MINUTE! MITSU LANDS ON HIS FEET AND ALMOST GETS WHIPPED BACK INTO THAT CORNER AGAIN BY BRONSON BEFORE REVERSING, SENDING BRONSON CHEST FIRST INTO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE! A GROGGY BRONSON STUMBLES BACKWARDS BEFORE GETTING LEVELED BY MITSUBACHI WITH A NORTHERN CLOTHESLINE!
Deadprez: MITSU LIES PRONE WITH EXHAUSTION BEFORE LOOKING TO SCORE A PINFALL VICTORY OVER DANIELS, WHO ROLLS AWAY, CREATING DISTANCE BETWEEN THE TWO, MAYBE EVEN SAVING HIS OWN SKIN THERE AS THE BACK OF THAT HEAD IS CLEARLY IN A MEASURE OF PAIN! MITSUBACHI NOW GETS UP AND GOES AFTER DANIELS, PULLING HIM UP TO HIS FEET! MITSUBACHI GETS CAUGHT WITH A QUICK FOREARM SMASH FROM DANIELS! BUT MITSUBACHI BARELY LETS IT REGISTER AS HE FIRES BACK WITH A FOREARM OF HIS OWN!
Eve: AND NOW MITSUBACHI BEGINS TO UNLOAD ON BRONSON DANIELS, LIGHTING HIM UP WITH A FLURRY OF SHOOT KICKS THAT LEAN HIM UP AGAINST THE ROPES! DANIELS GETS WHIPPED OFF THE ROPES, HOWEVER, THERES A REVERSAL, BOUNCING MITSUBACHI OFF THE ROPES INSTEAD! AND MITSU COMES BACK WITH A CALF KICK! DANIELS SPRINGS BACK TO HIS FEET AFTER THAT, GETTING KNOCKED RIGHT BACK DOWN WITH ANOTHER CALF KICK! BUT DANIELS REFUSES TO STAY DOWN, AGAIN RUSHING BACK TO HIS FEET, AND RUNNING TOWARDS HIS OPPOSITION!
Deadprez: BUT MITSU DROPS HIM WITH A BACK ELBOW! BRONSON BEGINS TO GET UP AGAIN BUT MITSU JUST GRABS HIM AND THROWS HIM INTO THE CORNER! MITSUBACHI GRABS THE ARM OF DANIELS AND WHIPS HIM INTO THE OPPOSITE CORNER ACROSS THE RING! DANIELS HOLDS HIS BACK AS HE COMES OUT THE CORNER WHILE STUNNED, WALKING RIGHT INTO AN EXPLODER SUPLEX! MITSUBACHI STANDS IN THAT CORNER AFTERWARDS, FEEDING OFF THE ENERGY FROM THIS RAUCOUS CROWD HERE IN LOS ANGELES!
Eve: A DAZED BRONSON GETS UP TO HIS FEET AS MITSUBACHI GOES AFTER HIM! BRONSON TRIED TO LAND A KICK TO THE STOMACH, BUT MITSUBACHI CAUGHT THE FOOT OF DANIELS BEFORE SPINNING HIM AROUND! DANIELS IS ALL OUTTA SORTS AS HE GETS KICKED IN THE STOMACH HIMSELF NOW BEFORE GETTING LIFTED UP IN THE AIR AND DROPPED DOWN WITH A GOURDBUSTER! MITSUBACHI IS FEELING IT AS HE CLIMBS TO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE NOW! BRONSON DANIELS HAS NO IDEA WHATS COMING AS HE GETS UP TO HIS FEET!
Deadprez: DIVING CROSSBODY FROM MITSUBACHI, WHO HOOKS BOTH LEGS OF BRONSON FOR A COVER!
Deadprez: I THOUGHT WE ALMOST HAD A NEW INTERWIRE CHAMPION RIGHT THEN AND THERE, BUT NO! BRONSON DANIELS STAYS ALIVE! MITSUBACHI GETS UP AND GRABS THE ARM OF A KNEELING DANIELS, JUST BOOTING HIM IN THE HEAD AS HE SLOWLY WORKS UP TO A VERTICAL BASE! MITSUBACHI CONNECTS WITH A ROUNDHOUSE KICK, WHICH HAS DANIELS OUT ON HIS FEET! MITSUBACHI RUNS OFF THE ROPES IN FRONT OF DANIELS, WHO DUCKS A CLOTHESLINE ATTEMPT FROM MITSU, SENDING HIM OFF THE ROPES AGAIN, AND MITSU RUNS RIGHT INTO A DROPKICK FROM DANIELS!
Eve: BRONSON MAKES A COVER!
Eve: MITSUBACHI GETS THAT SHOULDER UP OFF THE MAT! BRONSON IS IN SLIGHT SHOCK BEFORE STANDING MITSUBACHI UP! HE UNDERHOOKS HIM FOR SAVAGE MODE! BUT MITSU BLOCKS BEING LIFTED UP IN THE AIR! DANIELS KEEPS TRYING TO GET HIM UP REGARDLESS, BUT ITS NO USE AS NOW MITSUBACHI STARTS TO FIGHT BACK, THROWING SHOTS TO THE BODY OF DANIELS, WHO ANSWERS BACK WITH A SHOT TO THE RIBS OF MITSU, STUNNING HIM LONG ENOUGH TO BE WHIPPED IN THE CORNER BY DANIELS, WHO DAMN NEAR TAKES HIS HEAD CLEAN OFF WITH A CORNER DROPKICK!
Gavin Kirkland: DANIELS PULLS HIM TO THE CENTER OF THE RING, AND REBOUNDS OFF THE ROPES FOR CHROME HEART TAGS!! :damn:
Deadprez: NOT QUITE, AS MITSUBACHI DUCKS UNDERNEATH THE KICK!! BRONSON GETS ROLLED UP WITH A SCHOOL BOY, BUT MITSU DOESNT HOLD ON FOR THE COVER, OPTING TO ROLL BRONSON TO ONE KNEE! MITSUBACHI LOOKS TO GET UP TO A VERTICAL POSITION, BUT BRONSON HOOKS HIM UP AND DROPS HIM WITH A FISHERMAN BUSTER AS HE ATTEMPTED TO DO SO! DANIELS WASTES NO TIME NOW TO HOOK BOTH LEGS OF MITSUBACHI!
Eve: KICKOUT BY MITSUBACHI, JUST ON THE BRINK OF THREE! DANIELS IS CLEARLY FRUSTRATED WITH BOTH HANDS ON HIS HEAD, JUST IN SHOCK AS TO HOW MITSUBACHI CONTINUES TO ROLL ON HERE!!

NOBODY HOME AS MITSUBACHI AVOIDS IT! DANIELS ROLLS IN PAIN ON THE FLOOR!
Deadprez: MITSUBACHI TAKES ADVANTAGE OF HIS OPPONENT’S CONDITION, GRABBING AHOLD OF AND SENDING HIM INTO THE ROPES! MITSUBACHI CONNECTS WITH A FRANKENSTEINER, BUT DOESNT END THERE AS HE ROLLS OVER TO HIS BACK, TRANSITIONING INTO THE LUCK-KEY TRIANGLE CHOKE!!! THIS MOVE HAS FINISHED OFF PEOPLE BEFORE, WILL BRONSON BE ONE OF EM?!
Eve: DANIELS IS TRAPPED IN THE CENTER OF THE RING, NOWHERE TO GO, AND HE IS GETTING THE LIFE SQUEEZED OUTTA HIM BY MITSUBACHI, WHO JUST TIGHTENS AND WRENCHES THAT HOLD! BUT DANIELS SHOWS SOME TRUE GRIT, HE ISNT GONNA TAP, AND HE JUST DEADLIFTS MITSUBACHI UP FOR A POWERBOMB!! DANIELS ROLLS HIM THROUGH TO BOTH KNEES AND DRILLS HIM WITH A BICYCLE KNEE STRIKE! DANIELS DOESNT MAKE THE COVER, HOWEVER, NOW CLIMBING TO THE TOP ROPE, AND WE KNOW JUST HOW PROFICIENT DANIELS IS UP THERE!
Deadprez: MITSUBACHI HAS HIS BACKED TURNED TO BRONSON AS HE SLOWLY WORKS BACK TO HIS FEET, HE HAS NO IDEA WHATS COMING…OR DOES HE?! MITSUBACHI RUSHES TOWARDS A PERCHED BRONSON AND NAILS HIM WITH A DROPKICK! MITSUBACHI CLIMBS TO THE MIDDLE ROPE, HOOKING DANIELS FOR A TOP ROPE SUPERPLEX! BUT THAT DOESNT APPEAR TO BE HAPPENING AS DANIELS HANGS ON TO THE TOP ROPE! MITSUBACHI CLUBS THE BACK BEFORE FINALLY MANAGING TO DRIVE DANIELS DOWN WITH A SUPERPLEX! DANIELS FAVORS THAT BACK, HAVING TAKEN A NICE FIVE FOOT DROP AND THEN SOME!
Eve: MITSUBACHI MAKES SURE BOTH SHOULDERS OF DANIELS ARE DOWN ON THE MAT AS HE MAKES THE COVER!!
Eve: DANIELS KICKS OUT! MITSUBACHI LOOKS TO THE ROPE AND STARTS TO GAIN EVIL INTENTIONS IN HIS MIND! MITSUBACHI CLIMBS TO THE ROPE…BUT DANIELS CUTS HIM OFF THIS TIME, CROTCHING HIM ON THE TOP ROPE! BRONSON THROW PUNCHES TO THE HEAD OF MITSUBACHI BEFORE CLIMBING TO THE MIDDLE ROPE HIMSELF! IS DANIELS GONNA REPEAT WHAT MITSU DID WITH THAT SUPERPLEX?! …NO! MITSUBACHI ULTIMATELY FIGHTS OUT OF IT, SHOVING DANIELS BACK DOWN TO THE MAT, HOWEVER, DOES STAY ON HIS FEET AS HE REELS BACK!
Deadprez: BUT DANIELS IS RELENTLESS, LOOKING TO CUT OFF MITSU IN THAT CORNER ONCE MORE! BUT MITSUBACHI ANTICIPATED AND LEAPS OVER HIM! DANIELS TURNS AROUND AND CHARGES AT MITSUBACHI, WHO- OH! CHROME HEART TAGS! MITSUBACHI JUST DROPPED DANIELS WITH HIS OWN MOVE IN THAT SPINNING ROUNDHOUSE KICK!

Gavin Kirkland: DANIELS REALIZED THIS AND SPRUNG TO HIS FEET, CERTAINLY PUTTING A CAVITY IN THE CHEST OF MITSUBACHI WITH THAT JUMPING SINGLE FOOT STOMP! BRONSON DANIELS CANT EVEN CAPITALIZE AS HE COLLAPSES DOWN TO THE MAT! MITSUBACHI IS PROBABLY THANKING HIS LUCKY STARS FOR THAT AS HES GONNA TRY TO HOPEFULLY RECOVER!
Eve: I think Bronson has him a bit beat in that aspect as he’s now back on his feet. Daniels grabs the head of Mitsubachi, looking to bring him back up, BUT GETS PULLED INTO AN INSIDE CRADLE BY MITSUBACHI!
Eve: KICKOUT BY DANIELS AT TWO, MITSUBACHI CHECKS WITH THE REF FOR CONFIRMATION ON THAT BEFORE TURNING HIS ATTENTION BACK OVER TO DANIELS! SHOOT KICK FROM MITSUBACHI! BUT IT GETS DENIED BY BRONSON DANIELS, WHO GETS BOTH HANDS UP TO BLOCK IT! BRONSON GOES FOR A KICK FOR HIS OWN IN THE ROUNDHOUSE! BUT MITSUBACHI JUST DUCKS UNDER IT! DANIELS GETS CAUGHT WITH A STEP UP ENZIGURI, KNOCKING HIM LOOPY!
Deadprez: MITSUBACHI SNAPMARES HIS OPPONENT DOWN TO THE MAT, LEAPING IN THE AIR WITH A KNEE DROP, AND MITSUBACHI PUTS ON A GROUNDED REAR CHINLOCK AS BRONSON JOLTED UP AFTER THAT KNEE! AND THIS IS JUST IS GONNA CONTROL THE PACE, TAKE ENERGY OUT OF HIS OPPONENT, BUT ALSO BUY HIMSELF SOME TIME TO RECOVER OFF THIS HELLACIOUS MATCH! SIMPLE AND EFFECTIVE FROM MITSUBACHI! BUT DANIELS REFUSES TO STAY DOWN, STANDING HIMSELF UP, AND FREEING HIMSELF WITH ELBOWS TO THE ABDOMEN!
Eve: DANIELS REBOUNDS OFF THE ROPES! SUNSET FLIP!
Eve: KICKOUT BY MITSUBACHI, WHO ROLLS THROUGH TO HIS FEET! DANIELS GETS CAUGHT WITH A SLIDING KNEE BY MITSUBACHI! MITSU CLIMBS OUT TO THE APRON AND ONTO THE TOP ROPE!

MITSUBACHI IS ON ONE KNEE, AND DANIELS IS GONNA LOOK TO RETURN THE FAVOR FROM EARLIER WITH MITSU’S VERSION OF CHROME HEART TAGS! SEEMS LIKE WERE GONNA SEE BRONSON’S VERSION OF TYRANTS REVENGE!!
Deadprez: MITSUBACHI DROPS DOWN BACK FIRST ONTO THE MAT TO EVADE THE KNEE! A SCHOOL BOY ATTEMPT IS MADE HERE, BUT MUCH LIKE EARLIER, MITSUBACHI ROLLS HIM TO ONE KNEE INSTEAD OF OPTING TO PIN! DANIELS ATTEMPTS TO LAND THAT FISHERMAN BUSTER FOR THE SECOND TIME IN THIS MATCHUP, BUT MITSU SLIPS OUT BEHIND DANIELS! GERMAN SUPLEX FROM MITSU, WHO DOESNT RELEASE HIM THIS TIME! MITSU KEEPS THAT GRIP INTACT, PULLING BRONSON UP FOR ANOTHER GERMAN! BUT IT DOESNT END THERE AS HE LANDS ANOTHER GERMAN TO COMPLETE THE TRIFECTA! MITSU BRIDGES FOR A COVER!
Eve: NO! DANIELS KICKS OUT! BRONSON GETS TO ALL FOURS, MITSU WRAPS THOSE HANDS AROUND THE WAIST, PERHAPS LOOKING FOR ANOTHER GERMAN SUPLEX AS HE PULLS HIM BACK TO HIS FEET!

BRONSON DRIVES MITSU CHEST FIRST INTO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE BEFORE GETTING HIM INTO AN O’CONNOR ROLL! THE REFEREE MOVES INTO POSITION!
Deadprez: MITSUBACHI ROLLS THROUGH AND REMAINS ON TOP OF BRONSON FOR AN O’CONNOR ROLL OF HIS OWN NOW!
Deadprez: DANIELS KICKS OUT AS MITSUBACHI GETS SENT OVER INTO THE CORNER! DANIELS GETS UP TO ONE KNEE- TYRANT REVENGE! TYRANT REVENGE CONNECTS FROM MITSUBACHI, IF HE MAKES A COVER, WERE GONNA HAVE A NEW CHAMPION!

(DING! DING! DING!)
Gina Romano: HERES YOUR WINNER…AND STILL THE INTERWIRE CHAMPION…BRONSON DANIELS!!
(‘Saint Pablo’ plays to a thunderous pop as Bronson Daniels raises himself off the mat to get his title handed back to him and hand raised by the ref.)
Eve: What a match between these two men!
Deadprez: They genuinely left it all out there, and win or lose, neither has anything to be ashamed of.
Eve: That’s for certain. But imagine the high Bronson Daniels is riding on right about now after a roller coaster of a season!
Deadprez: He started out this season as champion, he ends it as champion, and he proves himself to be exactly what he calls himself…a game changer. Who is gonna end the reign of Bronson Daniels?
Eve: If he shows as much heart, as much fighting spirit as he did tonight, I’m not sure anyone will. But when it comes to Mitsubachi, he keeps up performances like that, he won’t go titleless for long, I’ll tell you that much.
(Bronson Daniels hoists the Interwire Title in the air as he stands on the stage, having a smile on his face. Meanwhile, Mitsubachi is seen clearly disappointed as he leans back on the barricade. The camera fades elsewhere.)
(The camera opens back up to the next match graphic.)
(Pain For Pride returns to the sight of Flannery McCoy, Stew-O, and Jake Mercer sitting at the Dynasty announcer’s desk.)
Flannery McCoy: Ladies and gentleman, welcome back to the biggest event of the year, the stairway to immortality, ladies and gentleman, this is Pain For Pride! And the pride is at full stake here because coming up next, boy, oh boy, this one is going to be fireworks!
Stew-O: We have for you a tag team match between two of EAW’s most bitter rivals and the fate of Dynasty’s entire future rests on the shoulders of this match. I cannot wait, coming up next, The Visual Prophet and Lethal Consequences face Ad Infinitum, Charlie Marr and Veena Adams!!!
Jake Mercer: and there are MAJOR stakes at play here, if Veena and Charlie win this match, Starr Stan will be fired and Veena takes full control of Dynasty! But if Lethal Consequences and Big Viz win tonight, Veena’s contract as co-general manager will be terminated! Thi math is for the future of Dynasty and the implications run heavy here tonight!
Stew-O: Not just the implications, the bad blood runs even deeper. These two teams absolutely despise each other and Viz and LC have been two elitists who have suffered the after effects of Veena’s questionable decision making on the red brand. They’re fighting for revenge tonight?
Jake Mercer: “Questionable” :wtf:
Stephie Love: LADIES AND GENTLEMAN, THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS A TAG TEAM MATCH AND IT IS SCHEDULED FOR ONE FALL! THIS MATCH HAS A SPECIAL SE OF IMPLICATIONS THAT RULE AS FOLLOWS: IF CHARLIE MAR AND VEENA ADAMS WIN THIS MATCH, THEY TAKE CONTROL OF DYNASTY AND STARR STAN IS FIRED!!!
(Crowd boos heavily.)
Stephie Love: BUT IF THE VISUAL PROPHET AND LETHAL CONSEQUENCES WIN THIS MATCH, STARR STAN REGAINS SOLE CONTROL OF DYNASTY AND VEENA ADAMS POSITION AS MANAGER WILL BE TERMINATED!!!
(Crowd erupts in cheers.)
Flannery McCoy: MAN, I CANNOT WAIT FOR THIS ONE, LET’S GET THIS MATCH GOING AND PAIN FOR PRIDE ROLLING! THE BIGGEST EVENT OF THE YEAR, IT ALL COMES DOWN TO THIS, AD INFINITUM, OR LC AND VIZ?!?!
(‘Trust Nobody’ by Killy begins to play as Veena Adams and Charlie Marr, Ad Infinitum make their way onto the Pain For Pride stage. Matching white and gold gear for Marr and Adams as they gaze out over this packed crowd.)
Stephie Love: INTRODUCING FIRST, WRESTLING AT A COMBINED WEIGHT OF 365 POUNNDSSS, THEY ARE AD INFINITUM, CHARLIEEE MARRRRRR AND THE CO-GENERAL MANAGER OF FRIDAY NIGHT DYNASTY, VEEENNAAAAAAAAA ADAAMMMSSSSS!!!
(Marr and Adams strut down the aisle, scowling in the face of every fan that’s booing them. They roll into the ring and pose in the center of it as they are receptive with a stadium full of echoing slander and boos.)
Flannery McCoy: It’s clear these two don’t care about being fan favorites, their only concern is maintaining the wealth and power they’ve attained since coming to Dynasty. They’ve found themselves calling the shots and Veena continues to use her power to keep herself and that man to her left above everyone else. But Viz and LC will do everything in their power to change that and prevent it from ever happening again.
Stew-O: Everything is on the line for Ad Infinitum tonight. Charlie’s seen his fair share of devastating results and lost momentum this season, but he’s found himself with a huge chance on the grandest stage and if there’s anyone who can deliver under the bright lights, it’s these two/ Don’t think that for a second these boos deter them from their course, they’re gonna go into that ring and try to pick apart Viz. Beginning to end. Ad Infinitum is a devastating force of power and manipulation, but they’ve remained on top so long for good reason.
(‘Don Life’ by Big Sean and Lil Wayne hits the speakers as a thunderous reception of cheers and excitement ensues for The Visual Prophet. He walks out onto the stage with a smile across his face. Winking at Charlie and Veena in the ring as he begins to approach the ramp. Starr Stan walks out alongside the Visual Prophet, keeping his eyes on Veena and Charlie.)
Stephie Love: INTRODUCING ONE HALF OF THEIR OPPONENTS TONIGHT, WRESTLING OUT OF DETROIT MICHIGAN, WEIGHING IN AT 265 POOUNNDSSS… ACCOMPANIED BY STARR STAN, HE IS “BIGGGG VIZZZZZ”, THE VISUALLLLLLL PROPHEEEETTTTTT!!!
Stew-O: Viz began this season defending his world title against the man he’ll be tagging with tonight! It’s been full of ups and downs, sidelined with injury then returning to have an incredible Grand Rampage performance. After falling short to Drake King and being humiliated by Veena Adams on weekly television, Viz knows the next step will come on the back of her neck! His career’s future stomps on Veena’s position as manager and Viz enters the new season with a big Pain For Pride win!
Flannery McCoy: Hey, if there’s one thing that caps off a season and sends you into the next one as a top draft pick, it’s an impressive performance at this event!
(Viz enters the ring and blows a kiss at Charlie Marr and Veena Adams as ‘Tougher Colder Killer’ by El-P, KIller Mike, and Despot begins to play as Lethal Consequences enters the arena to a mixed reaction. LC walks straight down the ramp and means all business tonight.)
Stephie Love: AND HIS PARTNER, FROM OAKLAND CALIFORNIA, WEIGHING IN AT 230 POUNDS… “THE INEVITABLE” LEEETTHAAALL CCONNSSEEQQQUEENNNCCESSS!!!!
Flannery McCoy: Another former World Heavyweight Champion and the man who very nearly walked into Pain For Pride the champion, Lethal Consequences! He’s got a cold and blank look across his face and you can tell he means all business tonight. He’s planning on revenge in this match and Lethal Consequences never arrives as anything less than the best version of himself. And I’ll tell you, if there’s one guy I didn’t want to have a vendetta against me, it’s Lethal Consequences.
Jake Mercer: You got that right, but the mind games could play a factor for LC tonight and I’ve Ad Infinitum and edge! Charlie and Veena know how to manipulate their opponents, but the question is, have they bit off more than they can chew with this one?!? Veena’s been looking to take these two men out for months, well, be careful what you wish for because we are on the verge of what is going to be a war for these two teams! OH BOY! HERE WE GO!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Flannery McCoy: AND THIS MATCH IS UNDERWAY!
Stew-O: Dynasty’s future is going to be decided right now! Charlie Marr and Big Viz are gonna start this match, they attempt to lock-up in the middle! Charlie ducks under Viz, rolls out of the ring and invites Viz to follow him outside, but LC storms after Charlie and forces him into the ring! Now Viz and Charlie lock up with a collar and elbow tie-up, Viz is able to transition into an underhook position! Charlie fights his way to the corner and pushes off the top turnbuckle, rolling out of the underhook hold.
Flannery McCoy: But Viz rolls through and pressures Charlie to the other side of the ring, pinning Marr against the turnbuckles and keeping his forearm pressed firmly on the jaw of Charlie! The referee gives Viz a five count, which he enjoys all of, then blows a kiss at Charlie Marr! Eye to eye, Viz making Marr feel the pride months vibes already, you know he must hate this!
Jake Mercer: Charlie fires off a headbut, but Viz avoids it and gets to the side of Charlie Marr! A snapmare from Viz, Charlie whipped down to the canvas! Viz rubs his head like Charlie’s a baby and then comes off the ropes with a big sliding dropkick to the face of Marr! A baseball slide dropkick to the teeth of Charlie! Viz tags Lethal Consequences, LC is legal!
Jake Mercer: LC chomping at the bit to get into this match and- LC STORMS RIGHT AT VEENA ADAMS! HE FLIES WITH A FOREARM TO THE FACE OF VEENA, SMASHING HER OFF THE APRON AS SHE FALLS TO THE OUTSIDE! WHAT WAS THAT FOR??? Lethal Consequences just unprovokedly attacked a known figure of authority, she wasn’t even legal!
Flannery McCoy: You know LC and Viz have just been frothing at the mouth to get their hands on Marr and Adams tonight, they’ve been subject to too much power abuse! It’s time for Veena to get a taste of her own medicine! Lethal Consequences turns around and is met with a nasty boot to the face from Charlie Marr! Now it’s Marr coming off the ropes, going for an arm drag- but LC is able to telegraph it, he bounds off the ropes as well and catches Charlie with a lariat! LC is able to forecast Charlie’s offense and counters with a nasty lariat! I think a few of Charlie’s teeth landed in my water!
Stew-O: Veena Adams storms into the ring, she tries to jump on LC, but the referee pulls Veena away from the legal competitors- Wait! Charlie Marr gets a thumb into the eye of Lethal Consequences! Charlie knows what’s at stake in this match and he’s gonna do everything he can to hang onto power! LC tries to clear the damage from his eye, but Charlie flies at LC with a big boot to the chin! He sends the former World Heavyweight stumbling into the turnbuckles! He tags Veena Adams into the match!
Jake Mercer: Veena Adams is legal! And she’s got nasty intentions on her mind! Charlie with a shoot kick that drops LC to a knee now! VEENA SLIDES IN WITH A DIVING KNEE STRIKE! She planted that patella on the chin of Lethal Consequences, now hooks both legs, AND THE SHORTS OF LC, A PIN ATTEMPT FROM VEENA- But Lethal Consequences kicks out before the referee even makes it to the canvas! He’s not going out easy, it’ll take the kitchen sink and everything that goes along with it to put this great down!
Stew-O: Veena Adams with precise kicks to the chest of LC, who’s just on his knees taking this violation!
Jake Mercer: Pause.
Flannery McCoy: Thank God it’s pride month! Ronan Malosi is punching the air backstage after hearing that one! VEENA NOW WITH A KICK TO THE NECK OF LC, GOOD LORD! She slammed her shin across his throat like a baseball bat, BUT LC RISES LIKE A MAN POSSESSED AND STUNS VEENA WITH A EUROPEAN UPPERCUT! LC CALLING FOR MORE PUNISHMENT, HE’S INVITING THE ATTACK FROM VEENA! LC CALLING FOR A WAR-
Jake Mercer: VEENA SPIT IN HIS FACE! VEENA STRAIGHT SPITS IN THE FACE OF LC AND HE’S IN DISBELIEF! LC THROWS A WILD PUNCH, BUT VEENA AVOIDS IT, TAKING HIS BACK, LOOKING FOR A GERMAN SUPLEX! LETHAL CONSEQUENCES ROLLS VEENA FORWARD, OVER HIS SHOULDER, AND DIVES WITH A FLYING WHEEL KICK TO THE SIDE OF VEENA’S TEMPLE! Wait, is LC going for a submission?!? What in God’s name, WAIT, OH NO!!!
Stew-O: LC HAS THE ARMS OF VEENA BEHIND HER BACK AS HE PUSHES HIS BOOT AGAINST THE BACK OF HER NECK! WE KNOW VEENA ADAMS HAD HER NECK BROKEN BY XAVIER WILLIAMS, THIS HAS GOTTA BE KILLING HER! LC IS TRYING TO SHATTER IT ALL OVER AGAIN, ABSOLUTELY RUTHLESS FROM THIS COLD KILLER!!
Flannery McCoy: CHARLIE MARR FLIES IN AND CLATTERS THE JAW OF LC WITH A JUMPING KNEE! BUT HERE COMES VIZ! SCOOPING CHARLIE UP LIKE CREAMY PEANUT BUTTER AND DUMPING HIM WITH AN OVERHEAD BELLY TO BELLY SUPLEX! ABSOLUTELY SENDING MARR FOR A RIDE! CHARLIE GETS BACK TO HIS FEET, BUT VIZ SENDS HIM SOARING OVER THE TOP ROPE WITH A CLOTHESLINE!! VIZ JUST STEAMROLLING THROUGH HIS OPPOSITION!!
Jake Mercer: HERE COMES VEENA! SHE RUNS AT VIZ, BUT HE SIDESTEPS AND SHE FLIES THROUGH THE ROPES AND COLLIDES WITH CHARLIE MARR!!! WAIT- NEARLY!

VIZ HAS HER DEADLIFTED IN THE AIR! CHARLIE DOESN’T KNOW WHAT TO DO, OH BOY, HERE WE GO!!! VIZ DROPS VEENA OVER THE TOP ROPE AND SHE TAKES OUT CHARLIE MARR!!! TIMBERRRRRRRR!!!!
Stew-O: VIZ TAKES OUT CHARLIE AND VEENA!!! They’re on the outside, trying to recover, but all has broken loose and LC storms out of the ring, dragging Charlie Marr to ringside! Both men exchanging punches, OH BOY, THE BRAWL IS ON! LC UNLOADING THE CLIP WITH A STORM OF FOREARMS TO THE JAW OF CHARLIE MARR!! LC IS SHOUTING AT MARR NOW!!
Lethal Consequences: (off-mic) YOU’VE HAD THIS COMING YOU BALD PRICK!!
Stew-O: NOW CHARLIE WITH A HEADBUTT THAT OPENS A CUT ON THE FOREHEAD OF LC!! CHARLIE SENDING SOME OF HIS OWN VENOM TOWARDS LC!!
Charlie Marr: (off-mic) :wtf: YOU’RE BALDER THAN I AM YOU OLD BAG OF FUCKING DIRT!!

Back in the ring now, Veena and Viz have started going at it, Veena trying to overcome the obvious size discrepancy here and she does so with a jumping knee strike of her own!

Stephie Love: LADIES AND GENTLEMAN, HERE ARE WINNERS, LETHAL CONSEQUENCESSSS AND THE VISUALLLL PROPHETTTTTT!!!
(The Pain For Pride crowd explodes as Viz and LC have their hands raised after an absolutely grueling match on both sides, and ‘Don Life’ begins to play once again as StarrStan re-enters the ring, holding up their hands.)
Stew-O: WOW! Veena Adams and Charlie Marr of Ad Infinitum put up more than a fight in their efforts to remain on top of Dynasty’s authority. Trying to remain the rule of law of the red brand heading into season 15, but the team of Big Viz and Lethal Consequences were too much for them tonight and Starr Stan’s legacy stays alive on Dynasty!
Jake Mercer: And man, oh man, did you hit it on the head when you said it was more than a fight, this was a war from beginning to end! Veena Adams and Charlie Marr were fighting to maintain the vive grip they’ve managed to hold over Dynasty for months now, but Viz and LC had revenge on their minds! Not the most orthodox team, but they got the job done tonight and both are shining under the Pain For Pride lights!
Flannery McCoy: Absolutely, if there was one victory that vaults you into the future with more momentum than you’ve ever felt, it’s a victory at Pain For Pride. This one was a big one for these two, who’ve had turbulent season fourteens, filled with championships and cold lows, many of those lows coming at the hands of these two they just beat tonight, so you know they’re feeling like they’re on top of the world right now.
Flannery McCoy: These two have had a bad fate coming to them for all the nonsense they’ve pulled in their power position with Veena on top! I can’t say I’m surprised that Viz and LC were able to overcome them and see Dynasty’s future brighter without them!
Jake Mercer: Whoa, Veena Adams is responsible for some of the most competitive matches Dynasty has seen in recent months and should be given her flowers for her time on top! That takes hard work!
Stew-O: Regardless of how we feel, I know Starr Stan is feeling happier than anyone right now! The future of Dynasty is in his hands and for now, congratulations to The Visual Prophet and Lethal Consequences on a massive Pain For Pride victory!
(The Visual Prophet blows a kiss to Veena Adams, who is walking up the Pain For Pride ramp with her head in her hands. Charlie walks arm and arm with her, clutching at his ribs. The crowd chants at Veena “GOODBYE, VEENA! GOODBYE, VEENA!” Absolutely ecstatic that Veena Adams has been fired as Dynasty Co-General Manager. From there, Pain for Pride fades out.)
(Pain For Pride fades to the backstage area of the SoFi Stadium. Max A. Million is seen in front of an EAW backdrop. He has a smile on his face as the crowd murmurs in excitement as the festivities continue)
Max A. Million: Ladies and gentlemen please welcome at this time, Holly Arrow.
(The crowd pops loudly as Holly Arrow shows up in the camera frame with a smile on her face. She nods at Max who acknowledges her back as the crowd begins to die down. After a while, Max continues to speak from there)
Max A. Million: Holly I’m sure we’re here to answer the obvious, how does it feel? This is your first Pain For Pride, just as it is for a lot of people, and you find yourself in the 24/7 Contract Battle Royal. Is there any sort of pressure in a way to succeed? To elaborate, is that good or bad?
Holly Arrow: Well, it feels great just being here to begin with. I’ve said for a bit now that Pain For Pride is exactly what I set my sights on and no matter what would happen I’d reach it. And through the trials and tribulations that stood in my way, and believe me there were alot. I managed to fight through it and have the honor of standing on the biggest stage that there could be in EAW. It’s the culmination of the Season, for many it’s a symbol of their hard work, and while I can agree I have my sights set elsewhere. Making sure that this marks a new beginning for me, to make up for everything that’s happened ever since I’ve gotten here because it’s not so farsighted to say I expected more. But now I have the opportunity to mend that and get back on track by winning the 24/7 Contract. I don’t even need to explain it, that’s self explanatory in itself. I have the chance to change my luck for the better, and that’s what I have my sights set on at the moment.
Max A. Million: Well, are you confident in your chances of winning the Battle Royal? There’s a lot that everyone in that match is fighting for and you’ll find yourself up against some tough competition. Do you believe that’s something that you can handle and say for certain?
Holly Arrow: Oh please, is that even a question? I think I’ve made it known in the weeks leading up to this that I’m very confident in my abilities and know damn well that I can deliver no matter the situation that I’m in. I mean, why shouldn’t I be faithful in my own abilities? I know how good I am and I know what I’m up against and I have absolutely no problem facing the odds when it comes to that. They just won’t know what’s hit them since a good majority of them have become enshrouded by their own ego in the first place. I don’t care who I have to get past, this is what I signed up for and this is the task that I have to accomplish. It doesn’t matter who they are and I’ve made that known already, they’re going to get thrown over the top rope. Because if there’s only one outcome I can truly accept it’s me standing on top, over the rest.
Max A. Million: :wow: Well considering that it is Pain For Pride I’m sure you’re here for more than just your match, you’re here to embrace the moment. So if you mind I’d like to ask for Holly Arrow’s personal Pain For Pride predictions of the night, I can name the matches and you can just say who you think will win!
Holly Arrow: Why not!
Max A. Million: Malcolm Jones versus Drake King for the EAW World Championship, Career versus New Eden.
Holly Arrow: I hope to God it’s Malcolm. I mean, which one would you value more? A Hall of Fame career with multiple World Championships to his name supporting his family… or New Eden? Such an easy question.
Max A. Million: Darcy May Morgan versus Ms. Extreme for the EAW Universal Women’s Championship.
Holly Arrow: Hmm, now that’s a tough one. Both of them are obviously very skilled and have what it takes to be a World Champion. But if I had to pick? I’d choose Ms. Extreme.
Max A. Million: SOSA Henderson versus Chris Elite.
Holly Arrow: SOSA, easily. I mean Chris was the reason this whole thing started wasn’t it? He’s just been a whiny bitch and I don’t think that’s really going to get him anywhere is it?
Max A. Million: Tyler Parker versus Jake Smith.
Holly Arrow: I mean, it’s Tyler Parker. He’s a Hall of Famer and a legend and Jake, is Jake. My pick has to be Tyler-
???: Would you like to repeat that?
(The crowd instantly begins to boo in negativity as the familiar voice hits the scene. The camera pans to the right as a smug looking Jake Smith is seen walking into the frame with his arms crossed and an eyebrow raised. He shakes his head looking towards Holly in disappointment)
Jake Smith: Cat got your tongue? Spit it out, let’s hear it. The masses want to hear your oh so valuable opinions on Jake Smith versus Tyler Parker.
Holly Arrow: Do you think I’m honestly going to be afraid of you? You’re about an inch taller than me and I’m 5’8”. You’re not even that intimidating, or have a positive track record either. What makes you think I’m suddenly going to change my opinion about a match just because you’re around?
Jake Smith: The audacity to say that Tyler Parker even stands a chance in our matchup is riveting, especially coming from a simpleton like you. Someone who truly doesn’t have a grasp on the situation yet thinks despite that they’re all high and mighty regarding who they’d presume to be the victor. Let me let you in on the facts since apparently that’s something you can’t comprehend even in the slightest. At the current moment, Tyler Parker is nothing more than a fraud. A man who tries to convey himself as someone who’s more than what he actually is, the austere grandeur of Elite Answers Wrestling. Someone who tries to tell me that I’m less of a person than he is because being a Hall of Famer is apparently a testimony to your skill and hard work. But it doesn’t work as such when you’ve lost that touch. You’ve lost that meaning behind your recent career as an Elitist. Compared to me? Tyler Parker has shown crumbs in the current moment. At best the most he can say for himself is the fact that he put Jamie O’Hara through the wringer, but even then came out empty handed even when he promised to show otherwise. Yet despite that, people still root for him. I’ll let you fill in the blanks on your own.
Holly Arrow: For starters did you just hijack my interview. And secondly, are you just saying all of this because you’re mad I didn’t choose you to win your match?
Jake Smith: I’m trying to educate the masses, Holly. People look up to Tyler Parker even now as someone who could still go pound for pound against the best. And I’m trying to tell you the only thing that it is, is nothing but smoke and mirrors. Get that into your head, and maybe you can become something more than an idiot who’s nothing more than a bland vanilla bitch.
Holly Arrow: Aw, I didn’t know you cared about the opinions of a “bland vanilla bitch” like myself Jake. Besides, I guess you’re just trying to look to reprimand people in hopes of sweeping your previous Pain For Pride under the rug.
Jake Smith: You are nothing less than the women that I gaslit and manipulated because of a 12 dollar bet. Quite frankly if you speak any longer you might just become one of them yourself. The world needs less idiots, Holly.
Holly Arrow: If I say you’ll win will you go away?
Jake Smith: It’s much more than that, you see… where the hell are you going?
(As Jake continues to speak Holly rolls her eyes as she turns around and walks off. Jake looks absolutely baffled as he rubs his temple before turning around)
Jake Smith: I’m going to beat the shit out of her.
(As he walks away from the camera frame himself leaving a very intimidated Max A. Million to his lonesome as that’s the last shot seen before Pain For Pride transitions to elsewhere)
Stew-O: Yes! It’s time to find out who will be crowned the new Hardcore Champion! The PURE title will be officially retired tonight and the Hardcore Championship has been reinstated for the first time since Jack Ripley held it in 2018!
(The lights cut out and fireworks shoot out of the stage and up exploding into the sky as “Shock the World” by Lloyd Banks begins to play. The crowd get to their feet and cheer as Ronn Banks begins making his way down to the ring with a large smile on his face.)
Stephie Love: Ladies and gentlemen… please welcome our guest commentator for this match… EAW Hall of Famer… RONNNNNN BANNNNNNKS!!!!!
Flannery McCoy: And the Hardcore title isn’t the only thing that’s been recently reinstated! Ronn Banks has made his return and is officially back as a member of the board!
Jake Mercer: But don’t let that fool you into thinking his presence here is just an appearance from the board. He’s had his eye on everything between Adam Lucas and Mr. DEDEDE for a while, even taking a spear for his efforts on the last episode of Dynasty!
(Ronn makes his way around the ring and walks briskly over to the commentary desk where a spare chair and headset are waiting for him. He takes a seat and fixes the headset.)
Stew-O: Mr. Banks! So good to see you out here!
Ronn Banks: You kidding, Stew? It’s Pain for Pride! This is the show where legends are made! The Stairway to Immortality as they say. I wouldn’t miss this for the world. Especially this next match.
(The stage suddenly explodes with pillars of fire that extend twenty feet high into the air. The flames in front of the ramp way then settle and fade as the ones to the sides continue. “You Know My Name” by Chris Cornell hits the speakers and the crowd cheers as Adam Lucas walks out onto the stage with the PURE Championship over his shoulder. He stands there taking in the cheers of the crowd with almost a sense of awe. He then nods his head and proudly pounds the center plate of the PURE title three times before beginning his walk down the ramp.)
Stephie Love: The following contest is a Hardcore match for the EAW Hardcore Championship!!!
Stephie Love: Introducing first… making his way to the ring from New York City, New York… weighing in at 231 pounds… he is the EAW PURE Champion… ADDDAAAMMMMMM LUUUUUUUUUCAAAAAASSSS!!!!!
Ronn Banks: And here comes the man I am putting my faith in tonight. A lot of people ask me why I believe in Adam Lucas. Well the fact is this kid has shown what he can do and has taken every challenge thrown his way head on. No one can say otherwise. It’s the intangibles. When it comes down to it, Adam Lucas is a fighter and I know he’s ready to give DEDEDE his just desserts.
Stew-O: Well I hope you’re right, Ronn. Because he’s in for the fight of his life if he wants to walk out with a title still on his shoulder. The chairman has his sights set on ushering in the new Hardcore era with the belt around his waist.
Flannery McCoy: Wait… why is Adam coming out first if he’s the reigning champion?
Jake Mercer: Well he may technically be the PURE Champion until the bell rings… but he is not the Hardcore Champion, which is what this match is for. So the right to the final entrance goes to the chairman.
Ronn Banks: That or maybe it’s the fact that the chairman is an egomaniacal psychopath who’d hold a gun to someone’s head just to make sure they’ll say he’s special.
(Adam then rolls into the ring and takes a stance up on the second rope in the far corner, holding the PURE title up in the air for the fans to see as they shower him with cheers. His music then fades as he steps to his corner.)
(“Value” by A$AP Ferg then hits as the stage is suddenly covered in glowing gold light. Red sparks begin to fall down over the entryway the wrestlers take to the stage and smoke covers the stage and ramp. The crown boos loudly as Mr. DEDEDE steps out with a viciously evil grin, walking through the red sparks onto the golden stage. He carries a large velvet bag in one hand, but the other arm extends out, mockingly accepting praise from the booing crowd. After a moment, DEDEDE puts a fist in the air and jets of steam shoot up from the stage. He then walks through the now fogged stage and makes his way down the ramp.)
Stephie Love: And introducing his opponent… making his way to the ring from the Ryan Adams Estate of Santo Domingo… weighing in at 218 pounds… he is the Chairman of the Board… EAW Hall of Famer… MISSSTTTEEERRR DEEEEEDEEEEEEDEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!
Jake Mercer: OOOH! AN AMAZING ENTRANCE AND A SURPRISE IN THAT BAG FROM THE CHAIRMAN! WHAT COULD IT BE?!? I’M SO EXCITED!!
Ronn Banks: Hey Flan, who the fuck is this guy and why do we pay him?
Flannery McCoy: If you need to mute Jake, it’s the third button on the right side of the headset. It’s been a marvelous discovery I made a few months ago. Here I’ll show you.
Jake Mercer: Why you gotta be a hater, Flannery?
Stew-O: We are all well aware of what’s likely in that black bag. The chairman unveiled the newly designed Hardcore Championship not too long ago and tonight he is carrying it into the match just as he hopes to be officially carrying it out of the match. That’s a bold power move, but maybe it’s just on par when you consider the source.
(Mr. DEDEDE climbs up the steps and through the ropes into the ring. He holds the black bag up in the air as the crowd continues to show their disdain for him. But you can notably hear a few people begin to cheer at the prospect of the new title. DEDEDE then asks for a microphone before motioning for Adam to come to the middle of the ring.)
Mr. DEDEDE: Well… as we all know… tonight is the beginning of a new era! A new era with deep rooted seeds as we see the return to what made EAW great! The Hardcore Championship… IS BACK!
(Mr. DEDEDE then reaches into the black velvet sack and pulls out the newly designed Hardcore Championship. The crowd actually then break into proper cheers at the sight of the belt.)
( //ibb.co/kKV4S0w )
Mr. DEDEDE: Yes. Yes… Daddy Gawd knows what all you filthy animals crave. But first… we have to make things proper.
(The chairman reaches a hand out and motions at Adam’s shoulder. Adam looks at him with hesitancy. DEDEDE continues to insist with a perverted grin on his face before Adam reluctantly hands him the PURE championship.)
Mr. DEDEDE: And now the PURE title…
(DEDEDE then tosses the PURE title out of the ring, letting it fall to the floor with a thud. Adam Lucas is visibly seething to see the title he carried disrespected like that. DEDEDE then holds up the Hardcore Championship.)
Mr. DEDEDE: …is no more. THIS is the prize we fight for. So get that through your head once and for all.
(Adam Lucas steps in close, almost nose to nose with the chairman. Adam leans in and speaks into the microphone.)
Adam Lucas: You want blood? You want things to be hardcore?
Mr. DEDEDE: Yes. Now you’re getting it.
Adam Lucas: THEN SHUT THE FUCK UP AND FIGHT!!
Stew-O: ADAM LUCAS JUST GRABBED THE MICROPHONE AND HIT THE CHAIRMAN IN THE FACE WITH IT! THE REFEREE IS GRABBING THE HARDCORE BELT AND SIGNALING FOR THE BELL! THIS HARDCORE MATCH IS STARTING RIGHT NOW!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Flannery McCoy: ADAM LUCAS JUST THREW THE MICROPHONE TO THE SIDE AND IS UNLOADING ON DEDEDE! THROWING PUNCHES AT THE MAN THAT LEFT HIM LAYING ABOUT A WEEK AGO! ADAM LUCAS TRYING TO DRIVE THE CHAIRMAN BACK INTO A CORNER! LUCAS WITH SHOT AFTER SHOT AND TRYING TO TAKE THIS MATCH OUT OF THE GATE! ADAM FORCING DEDEDE BACK AND TRYING TO THROW SOME KNEES NOW! DEDEDE MANAGES TO GET SOME DISTANCE THOUGH! HE PUSHES BACK AND SLIDES OUT OF THE RING!
Jake Mercer: But DEDEDE still has a smile on his face! Even as a little bit of blood trickles from where he was hit with the microphone! He seems excited by this!
Ronn Banks: Ryan Adams is a man who thrives in violence. I know that better than anyone. For all his talk of enlightenment, he’s just as animalistic as anyone else when you boil him down.
Stew-O: DEDEDE now casually walking himself up the ring steps, his eyes locked dead on Adam Lucas! Lucas looks ready to go too! He points for DEDEDE to get back in the ring! This match is hardcore but the fall still has to happen between the ropes folks! DEDEDE climbs through the ropes and back into the ring! AND ADAM CHARGES HIM! BUT DEDEDE THEN AS READY THIS TIME! THE CHAIRMAN SIDE STEPS AND PLANTS A PALM HEEL TO THE RIBS OF LUCAS! DEDEDE NOW USING HIS SHOULDER AND DRIVING ADAM LUCAS INTO THE TURNBUCKLES! DEDEDE NOW THRUSTING KNEE AFTER KNEE I TO THE STERNUM OF THE PURE CHAMPION! MAKING HIM PAY FOR HIS EARLIER ASSAULT! DEDEDE NOW GRABBING LUCAS BY THE HEAD! HE RUNS HIM OUT OF THE CORNER! LEAPING BULLDOG!
Flannery McCoy: BUT ADAM PUSHED HIM OFF AND DEDEDE CRASHES BACK FIRST TO THE MAT! AND NOW LUCAS DIVING ON TOP OF HIM AND LAYING IN WITH PUNCHES TO THE FACE! DEDEDE TRYING TO COVER UP BUT ADAM IS SWINGING HARD! Adam Lucas now swinging punch after punch to try and keep the pressure on! He knows who he is in the ring with and he knows he can’t allow him any room to breathe! The young man is trying to make the most of his opportunity! Adam continues to swing— BUT DEDEDE CATCHES HIM BY THE FIST! HE ROLLS THROUGH WITH HIS LEGS! CROSS ARMBREAKER! DEDEDE WITH A MASTERFUL COUNTER ONCE HE HAD A GRIP ON ADAM’S WRIST! NOW CRANKING AT LUCAS’S ELBOW! TRYING TO MAKE THE PURE CHAMP TAP OUT!
Ronn Banks: ADAM IS IN A BAD WAY HERE BUT HE CAN GET OUT! HE JUST CANNOT STAY IN THAT HOLD TOO LONG!
Stew-O: Adam is looking for a way out of this predicament! You can hear him straining against the pain in his arm! Adam rolling his hips around, looking for a weak point to break through— AND HE TURNS THROUGH! ADAM MANAGES TO GET HIS HIPS TURNED OVER AND HIS KNEES ARE UNDER HIM! HE STACKS DEDEDE UP ONTO HIS BACK! BUT DEDEDE STILL HAS THE ARM! NOW LOOK! THE POWER OF ADAM LUCAS! LIFTING DEDEDE UP WITH THAT ARM! POWERBOMB!!! HE JUST SMASHES DEDEDE DOWN TO THE MAT!!! LUCAS GOING FOR THE COVER!
Jake Mercer: Barely a one count as DEDEDE kicks out almost immediately!
Ronn Banks: DEDEDE has a lot more fight in him than that. Adam needs to figure out how to get him worn down and bring out the big guns quickly if he wants to win this one!
Flannery McCoy: Adam looks to be figuring out his next move! DEDEDE is already trying to get to his feet and Lucas needs to stay on top of things! Adam Lucas slides out of the ring now and he’s digging underneath it! Adam is looking for a weapon but he’s taking a while! And finally he pulls out a steel chair! Adam grabbing that chair and turns back to the ring— BUT DEDEDE NOW COMES OVER THE TOP ROPE WITH A PLANCHA DIVE! HE CROSS BODIES ADAM LUCAS TO THE FLOOR AND BRINGS HIM DOWN WITH THAT STEEL CHAIR STUCK BETWEEN THEM! DEDEDE POPS UP TO HIS FEET AND NOW LOOKS DOWN AT ADAM! DEDEDE GRABS THE CHAIR AND TOSSES IT TO THE SIDE WITH A LOOK OF ANNOYANCE!
Jake Mercer: DEDEDE is now going under the ring for a weapon of his own and we can expect it to be something a bit more chaotic! DEDEDE now just pulling everything from underneath! There goes a roll of duct tape! I think that was an extension cord? Is it Home Depot under there?
Ronn Banks: Oh… I don’t think Home Depot carries those.
Stew-O: DEDEDE PULLS OUT A BARBED WIRE BASEBALL BAT! HE LOOKS AT IT WITH THAT SAME HORRIBLE GRIN BEFORE TURNING BACK TO HIS OPPONENT! ADAM IS BARELY UP TO HIS KNEES! BUT DEDEDE RUNS IN AND PLANTS THE BARBED WIRE BAT RIGHT INTO HIS STOMACH! ADAM SCREAMS IN PAIN BUT DEDEDE JUST WRENCHED THE BAT BACK OUT AND SWINGS IT AGAIN! AND AGAIN! AND AGAIN! THE MIDSECTION OF THE PURE CHAMPION SLOWLY TURNING TO HAMBURGER MEAT!
Flannery McCoy: Eww! Stew I don’t need that image…
Stew-O: Blood is dripping down from Lucas’s abdomen but DEDEDE looks pleased! He takes the bat and now bashes the knob of the grip into Adam’s skull! DEDEDE tosses the bat into the ring before grabbing Lucas and rolling him— NO I THOUGHT HE WAS ROLLING HIM INTO THE RING! DEDEDE RUNS ADAM LUCAS FACE FIRST INTO THE STEEL POST! ADAM’S HEAD BOUNCING HORRIBLY OFF THE METAL POST AND HE HAS TO HAVE A CONCUSSION AFTER THAT!
Jake Mercer: But the chairman isn’t done with his fun just yet! He looks back and now has his sights set on something! DEDEDE grabs the PURE Championship off the floor that he threw earlier! The belt Adam has carried for months! DEDEDE lines up! Adam is struggling up to his knees and now to his feet! He doesn’t see DEDEDE behind him! DEDEDE RUNS IN! AND HE BASHES THE BELT RIGHT INTO ADAM’S FACE!! ADAM DROPS AND I THINK THE LIGHTS JUST WENT OUT UPSTAIRS! DEDEDE NOW GRABBING ADAM BY THE HAIR AND TURNING BACK TO ROLL HIM INTO THE RING! DEDEDE SLIDING IN BEHIND HIM AND HOOKING THE LEG!
Stew-O: NO! Even after all that punishment just now it’s still only a two count! Adam Lucas showing his resilience here but everyone has their limits! He can only take so much! DEDEDE now sliding out of the ring! He grabs that chair and tosses it in along with the extension cord! Lucas is still on the mat as DEDEDE slides in! DEDEDE now taking the chair and setting it up! He sits in the chair with the baseball bat, leaning on it and watching as Adam struggles to get himself together! Watching and waiting like a king on a throne as Adam crawls to the ropes and climbs himself back up, still stunned from the head damage he just received! DEDEDE now begins to unroll part of that extension cord as Adam gets his hands on the second rope!
Flannery McCoy: DEDEDE has some plan in mind here and now he finally rises to his feet as Adam gets to his feet by holding the top rope! DEDEDE moves over quickly! Adam barely turns around— RIGHT INTO A KNEE TO THE BLOODIED STOMACH! DEDEDE shoves Lucas back into the ropes and now wrapping that extension cord! DEDEDE IS TYING ADAM’S RIGHT ARM TO THE TOP ROPE! HE QUICKLY FASTENS A KNOT WITH THE EXTENSION CORD AND PULLS IT TIGHT! LUCAS IS GRABBING AND CLAWING! DESPERATELY TRYING TO GET HIS ARM FREE! DEDEDE HAS TOTAL CONTROL HERE! ADAM FIGHTING AND STRUGGLING TO GET SOME FORM OF FREEDOM! HE LOOKS BACK TO—
Ronn Banks: DEDEDE JUST HIT LUCAS ACROSS THE FACE WITH THAT BARBED WIRE BASEBALL BAT! LUCAS DROPS LIMP AS BLOODY DROOL BEGINS TO FALL FROM HIS MOUTH NOW! DEDEDE looks incredibly pleased now! Adam’s eyes are barely blinking but just enough that we know he’s alive! DEDEDE now standing him up, leaning Lucas’s back against the top rope! Lucas is wobbly! Only on his feet from being leaned like that! And DEDEDE— DEDEDE HITS THE ROPES ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE RING! HE RUNS BACK IN! RAPTURE!!!!
Jake Mercer: NO! ADAM JUST PULLED HIMSELF TO THE SIDE WITH MILLIMETERS TO SPARE BEFORE DEDEDE COULD HIT THE HELLUVA KICK! DEDEDE IS HUNG UP BY THE CROTCH ON THE TOP ROPE! AND ADAM LUCAS IS PULLING AT THAT KNOT! HE GRIPS AND PULLS! DEDEDE IS TRYING TO GET HIMSELF DOWN BUT HIS EYES ARE STILL BULGED FROM GETTING RACKED! DEDEDE IS BACK TO HIS FEET! AND ADAM LUCAS JUST BARELY MANAGES TO LOOSEN THE EXTENSION CORD AND FREE HIS ARM! DEDEDE CHARGES IN!!
Flannery McCoy: POP UP POWERBOMB!!!
Stew-O: ADAM LUCAS MANAGED TO RIGHT HIMSELF JUST IN TIME TO CATCH THE CHAIRMAN AND DROP HIM WITH THE POP UP POWERBOMB! ADAM DROPS DOWN FOR THE COVER! THIS COULD DO IT!
Flannery McCoy: DEDEDE POWERS OUT! DEDEDE looks frustrated now! The dried blood where that microphone busted him earlier is smeared all over his face! But Adam Lucas is trying to make the most of his chance! He grabs the extension cord that had just held him to the ropes and— ADAM LUCAS USES THE EXTENSION CORD TO WHIP DEDEDE ACROSS THE BACK! OVER AND OVER HE BELTS DEDEDE AND THE SKIN ON THE CHAIRMAN’S BACK BEGINS TO TEAR! DEDEDE IN PAIN WITH EVERY LASHING AND ADAM SWINGING IT HARDER AND HARDER! ADAM NOW GRABBING THE CORD BY THE PLUG AND— ADAM LUCAS JUST DROVE THE THREE PRONGED PLUG INTO DEDEDE’S KIDNEY! HE LEAVES IT IN THERE! DEDEDE IN PAIN AS THAT PLUG IS NOW EMBEDDED INTO HIS FLESH!
Stew-O: BUT ADAM LUCAS IS NOW OUTSIDE THE RING! HE’S DIGGING UNDER THE RING SKIRT AGAIN AND LOOKING FOR SOMETHING TO END ALL OF THIS! DEDEDE IS NOT ABOUT TO LET THAT HAPPEN! HE PULLS THE BLOODY PLUG OUT OF HIS BACK AND TOSSES IT TO THE SIDE WITH A PIECE OF HIS FLESH JUST SITTING IN THE PRONGS OF IT! HE GRABS THAT BARBED WIRE BAT AND SLIDES OUT OF THE RING! THE CHAIRMAN RUNS IN AND SWINGS THE BAT—
Ronn Banks: HOLY SHIT!!
Flannery McCoy: ADAM JUST SMASHED DEDEDE IN THE FACE WITH A FIRE EXTINGUISHER THAT WAS STILL IN THE CASE! DEDEDE’S FACE JUST WENT STRAIGHT THROUGH THE GLASS OF THE CASING! THE CHAIRMAN DROPS TO THE GROUND AND CLUTCHES AT HIS EYES AND MOUTH! AND ADAM LUCAS PULLS OUT THE FIRE EXTINGUISHER BEFORE THROWING THE REMAINING METAL FRAME OF THE CASE RIGHT INTO DEDEDE’S ABDOMEN! THE CHAIRMAN NOW LOOKING FOR SOME FORM OF DEFENSE! SCRAMBLING BACKWARDS AND INTO THE RING! DEDEDE GRABBING WILDLY FOR THE STEEL CHAIR HED SET UP BEFORE! BUT LUCAS GETS THERE BEFORE HE CAN FOLD IT UP AND SMASHES DEDEDE IN THE BACK OF THE SKULL WITH THE FIRE EXTINGUISHER!
Jake Mercer: Both men are growing more and more grotesque as the ring is now covered in more and more of their blood! DEDEDE is crawling now! His head absolutely rocked from the extinguisher case and the extinguisher itself! Adam now takes him by the hair! He begins pulling the Chairman up to his feet! DEDEDE swinging a couple of loose lunches but nothing connecting! Lucas has the chairman and— HE GRABS DEDEDE BY THE HIPS! HE TOSSES HIM UP! POP UP POWERBOMB! HOLY SHIT! HE POP UP POWERBOMBED DEDEDE DOWN INTO AND THROUGH THE STEEL CHAIR!!!
(Slow motion replay shows DEDEDE being slammed down onto the unfolded chair. His upper back connects with the back of the chair causing it to bend before the rest of his back meets the seat of the chair and crumpling the legs underneath it.)
Stew-O: AND ADAM DROPS DOWN! HOOKING BOTH LEGS FOR THE PIN!
Jake Mercer: BUT DEDEDE POWERS OUT AT THE LAST INSTANT! HOLY SHIT!
Ronn Banks: Adam looks in disbelief after that kick out but he has to remember he’s up against one of the most deadly men this industry has ever known. Shake it off and keep going, kid! Adam finally pushes to his knees and twists around! Looking to put DEDEDE in some kind of position! He grabs the chairman by the head! TRIANGLE CHOKE! ADAM LUCAS TRYING TO LOCK IN THE TRIANGLE CHOKE!
Stew-O: DEDEDE feels the hold being applied! He’s looking around and trying to find a way out before he can be put into further danger! WAIT!! WAIT!! WHAT THE FUCK!!
Jake Mercer: DEDEDE GRABS ONE OF THE BROKEN STEEL LEGS FROM THAT CHAIR HE WAS SMASHED THROUGH! AND HE JUST STABBED THE JAGGED END RIGHT INTO ADAM’S THIGH! HE PULLS IT OUT AND STABS AGAIN! LEAVING A HORRIBLE GASH IN ADAM’S LEG!! THE BLOOD FLOWING FROM THAT WOUND AS ADAM RELEASES THE HOLD AND GRIPS HIS LEG IN PAIN! HE YANKS THE MAKESHIFT DAGGER AND TOSSES IT AWAY, TRYING TO STOP THE BLEEDING!
Flannery McCoy: Adam trying to scoot himself away for safety and DEDEDE is using the turnbuckles to get himself up to his feet! Both men battered and hurt after aiming to punish one another! Adam is hobbled! Trying desperately to find a way to fight back! He uses the ropes to climb up! Trying to put weight on that leg but he nearly crumbles! He tests it a few more times, grimacing through the pain! He eventually manages to take a step and— SPEAR!!
Stew-O: DEDEDE JUST TORE ADAM IN HALF WITH A SPEAR! THE PURE CHAMPION IS FLAT ON HIS BACK AND DEDEDE NOW HOOKING THAT WOUNDED LEG DEEP! THATS IT!
Jake Mercer: BALL GAME!
Ronn Banks: NOT SO FAST!
Stew-O: ADAM LUCAS JUST MANAGES TO POWER OUT! I DON’T EVEN KNOW HOW BUT HE MANAGED TO POWER THAT BAD LEG OUT AND NOW HE IS GRIPPING THAT THIGH IN PAIN AGAIN! DEDEDE spits a mouthful of blood off to the side! I don’t think the chairman was expecting to suffer the kind of damage he has so far tonight! And I don’t think he was expecting this level of endurance from the PURE Champion! The chairman now looking to continue the assault and not looking to relent the upper hand again anytime soon! He wipes some blood stained hair out of his face and reaches down to grab Adam! He pulls the struggling young man to his feet! He tosses one arm over his shoulder! DEDEDE wants to end things right now! GRAND SLAM!!!
Flannery McCoy: BUT ADAM ROLLS THROUGH AND TURNS IT INTO A HIP TOSS! DEDEDE crashes hard to the mat and Adam forces his way up to his feet, letting out a gasp of pain before he does so! DEDEDE rolls himself out of the ring but Adam is trying to give chase!! DEDEDE is crawling now! Feeling around on the floor for something! Adam drops down to the mat and rolls under the bottom rope! He pulls himself out and gets to his feet on the floor, dropping to one knee briefly from the pain in his leg! DEDEDE scoots himself around a corner but Adam is still giving chase despite his injuries!
Ronn Banks: He has to keep the pressure on! You can’t let a guy like DEDEDE control the pace.
Stew-O: Adam finally rounds the corner! He approaches DEDEDE and grabs him by the head! DEDEDE with a quick punch to the gut and— WHAT THE HELL?!?
(Camera close up shows blood flowing from the already torn up torso of Adam Lucas. As DEDEDE pulls his hand back, we can see that he’s duct taped his fist with glass shards from the fire extinguisher case and used it to punch Adam in the gut.)
Jake Mercer: MR. DEDEDE WITH A MAKESHIFT VERSION OF A TAIPEI DEATHMATCH FIST ALL WHILE BEING CHASED! THERE REALLY IS NO ONE BETTER!
Flannery McCoy: DEDEDE PULLS BACK AND DRIVES THAT FIST INTO ADAM’S STOMACH ONCE AGAIN! ADAM REELS BACKWARDS IN PAIN! AND DEDEDE FOLLOWS UP! HE BLASTS ADAM ACROSS THE FACE WITH THAT GLASS SHARD PUNCH! ADAM’S FACE IS INSTANTLY GASHED! HE HAS LOST A LOT OF BLOOD AND NOW HIS FACE IS POURING WITH BLOOD! ADAM SCRAMBLES AWAY! LOOKING FOR SOMETHING!
(EAW Medics start rushing over to examine the wounds. One of them pulls out a medical kit but then DEDEDE rushes over and starts shoving the medics away.)
Mr. DEDEDE: (off mic) NO! BACK THE FUCK UP! I’M NOT DONE WITH HIM YET! HE’S MI— FUCK!!!!
Ronn Banks: ADAM LUCAS JUST TORE THE RUBBING ALCOHOL OUT OF THAT MEDICAL KIT AND SPRAYED IT IN DEDEDE’S FACE! YOU CAN SEE DEDEDE DEALING WITH THE BURNING IN HIS WOUNDS AND EYES!
Stew-O: BUT HE RUBS IT AWAY! NOT ENOUGH TO STOP THE ONSLAUGHT AND HE PLANTS A THRUST KICK INTO THE WOUNDED LEG OF ADAM LUCAS! LUCAS DROPS TO A KNEE AND GRABS AT THAT LEG AGAIN! BUT THE ADRENALINE SEEMS TO BE KICKING IN AND HE THEN REBOUNDS TO TRY AND TACKLE DEDEDE TO THE GROUND!
Flannery McCoy: BUT DEDEDE GRABS HIM BY THE BACK OF THE HEAD AND RUNS HIM SHOULDER FIRST INTO THE BARRICADE! DEDEDE looks down at Adam on the floor. The chairman pauses to spit on the PURE champion before turning away. DEDEDE looks around and begins to grip at the thin mats that cover the ringside floor. OH MY GOD! HE’S EXPOSING THE CONCRETE UNDERNEATH! DEDEDE PEELING AWAY AT WHAT LITTLE PROTECTION WAS ALREADY THERE! HE PULLS AND PULLS AND ABOUT FIFTEEN SQUARE FEET OF CONCRETE IS EXPOSED NEXT TO THE FAR BARRICADE! DEDEDE NOW GOES TO GRAB ADAM AND IS GOING TO DO WHATEVER IT TAKES TO BREAK HIS BODY!
Ronn Banks: He grabs Adam again and pulls him over to the concrete! BUT ADAM NOW FIGHTING BACK! SWINGING PUNCH AFTER PUNCH TO THE MIDSECTION! DEDEDE REARS BACK AND THROWS THAT GLASS SHARD FIST AGAIN! BUT ADAM CATCHES IT! AND HE PLANTS A KNEE INTO THE GUT OF THE CHAIRMAN! HE TRIES TO POWERBOMB HIM AGAIN! BUT DEDEDE FIGHTS AND PUSHES AWAY! DEDEDE THROWS A RUNNING LARIAT! BUT ADAM MANAGES TO DUCK IT! DEDEDE TURNS BACK AND CHARGES AGAIN!! BUT ADAM DUCKS LOW AND USES HIS GOOD LEG TO LIFT DEDEDE UP FOR A FALLING FACE BUSTER RIGHT INTO THE CONCRETE! DEDEDE HAS TO BE OUT COLD!
Flannery McCoy: That may be but Adam isn’t satisfied with just that! He grabs DEDEDE and pulls him in one more time! He drags the chairman up! HAS HIM IN POSITION! HE HOISTS DEDEDE UP! POP UP POWERBOMB ONTO THE CONCRETE!!!
Stew-O: DEDEDE SPLATS ONTO THE CONCRETE! He is motionless and Adam Lucas sees his chance to take this victory! He grabs DEDEDE and pulls him with all the strength he has left! He shoves the motionless body of the chairman into the ring and crawls! OH! Adam just fell off the side of the ring apron! He strains that bad leg and pushes himself up once more! Trying to find the life within himself to get back in the ring and end this! His leg fails him at first but Adam manages to finally get inside the ring! HE GETS AN ARM OVER THE TOP OF DEDEDE FOR THE COVER AND THE REFEREE SLIDES IN TO MAKE THE COUNT!
Ronn Banks: COME ON!!
Jake Mercer: DEDEDE GETS THE SHOULDER UP OFF THE MAT AT THE LAST SECOND! LUCAS TOOK TOO LONG TO CAPITALIZE!
Stew-O: Adam looks like he could be in tears if he wasn’t already drenched in sweat and blood! He was inches away from walking out with the win there! He pounds his fist into the mat over and over out of anger! He turns back and grabs DEDEDE by the shoulder! Using what’s left of his good leg to pull DEDEDE up and try something new! He slips through and tries to wrap up DEDEDE’s arms… HE’S GOING FOR THE FULL NELSON SLAM! THE BIGGEST IMPACT ADAM HAS IN HIS ARSENAL! TRYING TO PUT A PIN IN THIS ONCE AND FOR ALL! ADAM GETS DEDEDE INTO POSITION—
Flannery McCoy: BUT DEDEDE THROWS ELBOWS INTO THE SLICED UP FACE OF ADAM LUCAS!! HITTING HIM OVER AND OVER AND FINALLY ADAM IS FORCED TO RELEASE THE HOLD! THE CHAIRMAN MOVES AWAY! TRYING TO CREATE SOME DISTANCE BETWEEN HIMSELF AND ADAM AS HE’S STILL HURT PRETTY BAD FROM THE CONCRETE!
(The camera gets a close up shot as DEDEDE feels his mouth and spits a bloody tooth out, likely as a result of the face buster on the concrete.)
Jake Mercer: Yuck.
Stew-O: DEDEDE drops to a knee and tries to recover but Adam isn’t done with him yet! The PURE Champion moves in and goes to grab the chairman once again—
Ronn Banks: FUCK! DEDEDE GRABBED THAT FIRE EXTINGUISHER AND JUST BLINDED ADAM LUCAS WITH IT! THAT’S PURE AMMONIUM PHOSPHATE RIGHT IN ADAM’S EYES!
Flannery McCoy: ADAM IS ON THE MAT CLAWING AT HIS EYES NOW! THE DRY SPRAY COVERING HIS FACE! ADAM IS SCRAMBLING AROUND TRYING TO FIND SOME SENSE OF WHERE HE IS! Oh… oh no… DEDEDE now has evil intentions once again! He moves over and grabs that extension cord again!
Stew-O: That sadistic grin returning once more as DEDEDE unrolls more of the extension cord that still holds a piece of his back in its prongs! He steps over! AND HE DOUBLE WRAPS IT AROUND ADAM’S THROAT! ADAM IS CHOKING AND CLAWING! HE STILL CAN’T SEE! HE DOESN’T KNOW WHERE HE IS AND THAT CORD IS CLOSING OFF ANY AND ALL BLOOD FLOW TO HIS BRAIN! ADAM IS COUGHING! SPITTLE FLYING FROM HIS MOUTH AS HE GASPS FOR ANY AIR HE CAN GET!
(A shuffling sound can be heard on the broadcast, as through a microphone is being messed with.)
Flannery McCoy: THE PURE CHAMPION IS FADING! HE’S REACHING AROUND AND TRYING TO GRIP AND PULL AT THE CORD AROUND HIS THROAT! BUT HIS ARM MOVEMENTS ARE LOOSE! HE’S LOSING CONSCIOUSNESS! HE CAN’T HOLD ON ANY MORE! HIS EYES ARE ROLLING BACK IN HIS HEAD!
Jake Mercer: WAIT! NO!!
Stew-O: RONN BANKS! RONN BANKS JUST SLID INTO THE RING AND BLASTED DEDEDE IN THE BACK OF THE HEAD WITH THE PURE CHAMPIONSHIP BELT! DEDEDE IS KNOCKED TO THE MAT! BUT HE LOOKS UP! SEETHING AT BANKS FOR WHAT JUST HAPPENED! THE ADRENALINE SURGES AND HE LUNGES FOR BANKS! REACHING FOR HIS THROAT!
Flannery McCoy: BUT BANKS SIDE STEPS IT! DEDEDE TURNS AROUND! AND BANKS PULLS THE CHAIRMAN ONTO HIS SHOULDERS! HE POPS HIM UP! GO! TO! RETIREMENT!
Jake Mercer: BANKS INTERFERES AND HITS DEDEDE WITH THE GO TO RETIREMENT!! DEDEDE DROPS BACKWARDS AND LANDS WITH HIS ARMS PROPPING HIM UP ON THE BOTTOM ROPE! DEDEDE IS GLAZED OVER AND BANKS NOW SLIDES OUT OF THE RING! HE STARTS WALKING UP THE RAMP, KEEPING HIS EYES ON THE MATCH THE WHOLE TIME! DEDEDE TRIES TO SHAKE HIS HEAD CLEAR AND FIGURE OUT WHAT JUST HAPPENED! HE PRESSES SLOWLY TO HIS FEET AND LOOKS UP THE RAMP WITH MURDER IN HIS EYES!
Stew-O: BUT ADAM LUCAS GRABS HIM WITH BOTH ARMS FROM BEHIND! FULL NELSON SLAM CONNECTS! DEDEDE DRIVEN SPINE FIRST ONTO THE REMAINS OF THE BUSTED STEEL CHAIR! ADAM LUCAS HOOKS BOTH LEGS!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Stephie Love: Ladies and gentlemen… here is your winner… and the NEWWWWWW EAW HARDCORE CHAMPION… AAADDDAAAMMMM LLLUUUUUUCCCAAASSSS!!!!
(“You Know My Name” hits and fireworks shoot up from around all sides of the arena. Adam rolls off of DEDEDE and falls flat to his back, taking a deep breath. Ronn Banks grins at the match result before stepping back through the curtain to the back.)
Jake Mercer: RONN BANKS TOTALLY SCREWED MR. DEDEDE! HE CANNOT LET THIS STAND!
Stew-O: Maybe, but revenge is a dish best served cold. And Ronn Banks and Adam Lucas both wanted revenge on the chairman. One way or another, you can’t deny the performance here tonight! Congratulation to the newly christened Hardcore Champion getting a massive win on the biggest stage there is!
(Adam presses up to his feet, looking around to the cheering fans and fireworks still exploding in the sky. The referee brings him the new Hardcore Championship belt and holds his hand up high. Adam then leans down and picks up the PURE Championship.)
Flannery McCoy: Adam has carried the PURE title proudly since the day he won it. He may have won the Hardcore title, but I imagine it’s bittersweet considering the work he out into the PURE division.
(Adam holds both titles up for the fans to see, all the wounds on his body evident as he holds both arms up. He then brings them down and looks at the PURE title. He takes a breath before giving the belt one last kiss on the center plate, then handing it to the referee, officially relinquishing it to be retired.)
Stew-O: The belt will be retired with honor, just as it was back when StarrStan retired it. But now, a new era begins for Adam Lucas, the Hardcore Champion!
(Adam climbs out of the ring, bloody and battered. He turns back to the ring, looking out to the crowd. The camera closes in on him as he holds the title up one last time to a shower of cheers.)
(Commercial advertising the next EAW Network documentary. Watch next Tuesday at 7pm EST for the debut of “Ronan Malosi: An Exercise in Futility.”)
(The camera fades backstage to an obviously dejected Veena Adams making her way from out of the medic office. She gives a slight sigh, as she starts walking down the long narrow hallway disheveled.)
???: Veena! Veena can I have a word with you???
(The camera pans back a little and we see Molly Waters approaching Veena microphone in hand. Without an answer, Molly continues on to ask her question.)
Molly Waters: How are you feeling now that you are no longer the Dynasty GM?
(Molly shoves the microphone in Veena’s face.)
Veena Adams: …
(Veena blankly just stares back at Molly, before shaking her head and responding.)
Veena Adams: Haha you stupid bitch, you honestly think that a match could determine whether or not I was GM of Dynasty? No, the outcome of a match would never dictate my future as Dynasty GM, I’m above that. I can snap my fingers, and this entire bad sequence will disappear, and it will be as if it never happened. I think you forget who I am Marge.. I rule Dynasty with an iron fist, and that’s not going to change. No one cares about Dynasty as much as I do. Not a single soul could ever bring it to the heights with the love and nurturing that I provide it. NO ONE! And that’s not going to change, no matter what anyone says. So you better watch what you say to me, or I’ll fire you ugo ass right where you stand.. I mean what happened to the days when backstage interviewers were actually pretty??!! Like are you a gremlin?? Get away from me.
Molly Waters: Well Veena, you signed the contract, and that’s legally binding. You are no longer in charge of Dynasty per the stipulation of the match; and you really don’t have a say.
(Veena stops for a second, as it seems a wave of realization hit her. She darts her eyes over to Molly, and snaps back to normal.)
Veena Adams: NO BITCH! I THINK NOT! ARE YOU FUCKING DUMB? HARD OF HEARING??? GET THE CUM OUT YOUR EARS AND ACTUALLY LISTEN TO WHAT I SAY.. A FUCKING MATCH WILL NEVER DETERMINE MY FUTURE!
(Veena has enough as she pushes by Molly storming off toward the Dynasty office.)
Veena Adams: Stanley!! You bald headed fuckface! Where are you Stanley!!?? YOU THINK YOU CAN KICK ME OUT??? YOU THINK YOU CAN TELL ME WHAT TO DO? YOU CAN’T EVEN GROW HAIR YOU DUMB CUNT! YOU CAN’T TELL YOUR HAIR WHAT TO DO, AND YOU SURE AS SHIT CAN’T TELL ME WHAT TO DO!! STANLEY!
(Veena kicks the door down, and see’s that StarrStan isn’t in the office. The waves of emotion just come pouring in, but she shakes it off, and gets picks up a sledgehammer that was nestled in the corner that she usually used for intimidation decor, and gets on top of StarrStans desk. But before she could bring herself to destroy anything, the emotion of losing her job is too much to bare, and she collapses on the desk. Uncontrollable sobs can be heard throughout the hallway as concerned employees peak their head in to make sure she’s ok, but notice it’s Veena and instantly stop caring, and walk away. Moments later a familiar face walks through the doorway; StarrStan. He views this mess of a Woman writing in emotion on his desk, and he just shakes his head. He knows that this Woman has been a pain in his ass for a long time, but he can’t help but feel bad for her.)
StarrStan: Hey Veena.. I just want to s-
(Veena looks up from the desk with red watery eyes, looking pathetic; before the rage boils over, and the demon within overtakes her soul)
Veena Adams: YOU STUPID INFERIOR GENETIC FUCK! HOW DARE YOU COME INTO MY OFFICE ALL SMUG AND SHIT!! IS THIS WHAT YOU WANT YOU PATHETIC SACK OF SHIT!!
(Veena shoves StarrStan, and already StarrStan’s had enough.)
StarrStan: That’s it, get out Veena!
Veena Adams: NO!
(She picks up the sledgehammer again, and starts destroying the desk; and the posters on the wall. She puts a K-Cup in a coffee brewer, and presses start; and as it activates she goes and lifts the office chair up, and throws it against the wall. She then takes what’s left of the wooden desk, and starts chucking them at StarrStan. She then goes back to the coffee she just poured, and takes a bit of a sip, before throwing the scalding coffee at StarrStans head.)
StarrStan: THAT’S IT! SECURITY!! COME GET HER OUT OF MY OFFICE!
Veena Adams: NOT TODAY BITCH!
(Veena charges over to the door, and pushes StarrStan out of the office before promptly shutting the door, and locking it. The camera is on the outside of the door as we see StarrStan sitting on the floor, we hear Veena screaming from the other side.)
Veena Adams: YOU’LL NEVER GET RID OF ME! NEVER EVER EVER! FUCK YOU ALL! YOU’RE ALL BITCHES! I HATE VIZ! I HATE STARRSTAN! I HATE ANGELO D’ANGELO! THIS SHOW IS NOTHING WITHOUT ME! YOU ARE ALL NOTHING WITHOUT ME! YOU NEED ME! I AM VEENA FUCKING ADAMS YOU DUMB CUNTS, WHAT DON’T YOU UNDERSTAND ABOUT THAT?!!!!
(Security comes rushing to the door, and breaks it down. Veena is seen stomping her feet having a total meltdown, but before she realizes what happens, EAW security come and tackle her to the ground, and drag her out while she’s kicking and screaming. Members of the Dynasty roster can be seen crowding around this childish display, and start pointing and laughing at her pain.)
Crowd: NAH NAH NAH NAH, NAH NAH NAH NAH, HEY HEY HEY GOODBYE!! NAH NAH NAH NAH, NAH NAH NAH NAH, HEY HEY HEY GOODBYE!! NAH NAH NAH NAH, NAH NAH NAH NAH, HEY HEY HEY GOODBYE!! NAH NAH NAH NAH, NAH NAH NAH NAH, HEY HEY HEY GOODBYE!!
(As Veena is dragged away, she’s heard mumbling to herself.)
Veena Adams: These people have no idea the hell I am gonna unleash in Season 15
(Veena gets dragged away, as everyone starts to applaud. Finally, the camera fades away from the area.)
(The camera cuts to the next match graphic.)
(Pain for Pride fades back to ringside, and Bella Braxton stands in the center of the ring with a microphone in her hand.)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen… The following contest is scheduled for ONE FALL!!!!
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!!
Bella Braxton: AND IT IS FOR THE UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPIONSHIP!!!!!!
(All of the lights in the SoFi Stadium suddenly go out. The darkness lasts for a while, and as the lights are out the camera fades to the entrance ramp, before finally a huge ring of fire appears on the stage, making it the only real source of light in the Stadium. The crowd is completely silent, as are the commentators, as they don’t really know what to expect from the fire that’s on the stage. After a few moments of waiting, something begins to rise inside of the ring of fire, almost like a demon coming out of Hell. Mumbling is heard within the crowd as all the fans in attendance seem to be confused on what’s going on, as they can’t tell what it is rising within the flames. It’s completely unknown what exactly it is at first, but as it keeps rising, and finally becomes visible enough to both the camera and the audience, the entire SoFi Stadium begins to explode with cheers.)
(The item rising inside of the ring of fire is Ms. Extreme, seated on a throne completely made out of knives, pretty much the one thing she’s wanted this season other than this opportunity. There’s a smirk on Ms. Extreme’s face as the throne made of knives continues to rise up until it’s fully set on the stage, and ‘The Joker’ by New Years Day finally begins to play while the lights turn back on. Ms. Extreme stands up in front of the throne and above the flames, and it’s there where her attire is fully revealed. She’s wearing a black bodysuit with red lining, as well as huge, demonic looking black wings. There couldn’t be any more support for Ms. Extreme than there is right now. Not only is it her first ever Pain for Pride main event, but this is her opportunity to capture the one thing she’s constantly missed out on throughout her career in a World Championship. It’s clear that this is a big deal to Ms. Extreme having made clear time and time again just how much she needs this, but you can see just from the look on her face just how confident she is in her chances as she walks past the ring of fire surrounding her throne, finally beginning to make her way towards the ring.)
Bella Braxton: Introducing first…. From Calabasas, California…. Weighing in at 135 pounds….. MMMIIISSSSSSSS EEEEEXXXXXTTTRRREEEEMMMEEEE!!!!!
James Peters: What an amazing entrance by Ms. Extreme, and it’s only fitting that we get something like this for Pain for Pride! Ms. Extreme is walking into one of her biggest matches yet with an opportunity to become World Champion on the line, and from the looks of things she’s come prepared!
Rich Russillo: Looks like she finally got those knives, one way or another :wow:.
Persephone: Can Camille just bash Darcy’s head into the weird knife throne thing so we can wrap this up early?
Rich Russillo: I don’t know actually. There’s a no knife rule, but does this count?
(Ms. Extreme continues making her way down the ring with her demonic wings spread wide behind her, but she stops as she finally makes it to the end of the ramp. Ms. Extreme looks around at the SoFi Stadium as all of the fans continue cheering for her, before finally she begins to raise her hands. As she does this, fire begins to shoot straight up behind her, from the very bottom of the ramp all the way up to the stage. The cheers grow louder after seeing the burst of flames, and the fire lasts a while, not stopping until finally Ms. Extreme continues making her way to the ring, climbing up onto the apron.)
James Peters: Ms. Extreme and Darcy May Morgan are two of the most talented women we have on the roster, and now they’re facing each other at the biggest event of the year! We’ve all seen what’s gone down between these two in recent weeks. All the attacks, all of the harsh words and promises about what they’ll do to each other tonight, but now’s the time for these two to finally fight!
(Ms. Extreme makes it into the ring, and as she finally poses one final time, you can finally see a look of focus set in on Ms. Extreme’s face, knowing that this is her biggest opportunity yet to finally become World Champion. One on one against the Universal Women’s Champion at the biggest show of the year. Ms. Extreme had an opportunity at the title once this season, and had it unfairly taken away from her. Now more than ever Camille knows she absolutely has to win tonight. She begins to remove the demonic wings, and she looks over at the entrance ramp, waiting for her opponent to make her appearance.)
(The lights go back out in the SoFi Stadium for a brief second, and the fans wait in anticipation. Suddenly, two members of the production crew are seen rolling out a red carpet all the way from the top of the entrance ramp to the very bottom. As soon as the production crew hits the bottom of the ramp, a spotlight comes down to show Darcy May Morgan’s head bodyguard, Wallace, standing with both his hands behind his back. Wallace is looking like his normal self, wearing a full piece Armani suit with a Bluetooth headset in one of his ears. As soon as the crowd saw Wallace, they threw him a mixture of boos and cheers as they knew that we were seconds away from seeing the Leading Lady and the Face of Women’s Wrestling. He shows a grin on his face as he then puts his hand on his ear to talk to the rest of the staff members that were ready to come out.)
Wallace: It’s showtime!
(As soon as Wallace says these words, hundreds of security guards, both men and women, all come down the left hand and right sides of the entrance ramp, all with her hands behind their backs like Wallace was. They all have sunglasses over their heads as the lights on the entrance ramp get brighter. When the last bodyguard gets to the bottom of the ramp, “Spotlight Saviour” by Iggy Azalea begins to play through the PA system. As soon as the music begins to play, a silhouette of a woman is seen in the background but is covered up with smoke. Wallace walks to the right side of the figure and puts his hand out to escort the lady down the ramp.)
(Out of the smoke, Darcy May Morgan’s hand comes out as she shows herself to the crowd. As soon as she is seen, the pops in the audience get louder with more cheers and boos. As she comes through the smoke, she is seen wearing a special red velvet version of her wrestling attire which had gold accessories all around it. Her fringe was pulled to the back of her head with the remainder of her brunette hair lightly flowing down onto her shoulders. Of course, Darcy May Morgan wore her signature sunglasses along with her EAW Universal Women’s Championship around her waist, and as soon as she came out of the smoke, she pulled them down just slightly to see everyone in the crowds, showing them a smirk as she did it.)
Bella Braxton: Making her way to the ring…. Billed from Kent, United Kingdom… Weighing in at 130 pounds…. SHE IS THE UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPION, DDDAAAAAARRRCCYYYYYY MMAAAAYYYY MOOOORRRRGGGAAANNNN!!!!!
(Darcy let go of Wallace’s arm after a few steps and then continues to walk in front of him. As soon as she did this, the crowd could now see that Darcy had a strap that was attached around her stomach which was attached to a cape of some sort. The cape was the length of the entrance ramp and continued to extend as Darcy moved. It was so wide that the bodyguards to the side of her had to move to the edge of the ramp. As Darcy walked down the ramp further, the cape flew through the wind, almost making “Super Darcy” look like a real-life superhero.)
(A birds-eye view above saw that the words “DMM” were written in red and gold writing all over the cape which could be seen more clearly from the crowd members who were up high. Darcy strutted down the ramp with a confident swagger and a huge grin on her face, passing all the bodyguards that stood beside her. She waved and threw her hands out to the side, showing the world that the Queen of EAW was ready for this moment in the spotlight. When she got to the bottom, she unattached the cape, dropped it to the floor and unattached her championship belt from around her waist. Darcy then held the championship up in the air for the world to see, as fireworks then directly went off behind her in a red and gold formation.)
Persephone: This is a bit much. Not that I care. Rex always has better entrances.
James Peters: You can tell a lot of effort was put into this, but that’s Darcy May Morgan for you! She spent months calling herself the face of women’s wrestling, and with a title like that I can see why Darcy’s going through with an entrance like this! Darcy May Morgan’s proven time and time again that she has what it takes to be in a Pain for Pride main event like this, even if she may be facing her biggest challenge yet as Champion!
(Darcy threw the championship belt over her shoulder and strutted confidently from side to side and around the ringside arena, passing all the fans in the front row as she did it. She jumped onto the apron still with her back to the crowd and camera, turned her head around and held her championship belt up to her head. She held this pose for a couple of seconds longer than usual, just so she could soak up the crowd and the moment. Darcy then took off her sunglasses to show off the glitter and sparkles that were covered around her eyes.)
Rich Russillo: We all know how personal things have gotten between Ms. Extreme and Darcy May Morgan, but Darcy’s clearly confident in her chances tonight and I don’t blame her one bit!
(Darcy had clearly put a lot of effort into the way she looked tonight for her big evening. Darcy then threw the sunglasses to the ground and dusted her wrestling boots off onto the apron before climbing into the ring. She quickly looked around for the right camera and then jumped up onto the ring ropes and once again held her championship up in the air. The crowd continued to boo and cheer at the same time, clearly having a mix of opinions about the Champion, but Darcy didn’t care. She was headlining Pain for Pride and you could see by the look on her face and the tears in her eyes that this meant everything to her.)
James Peters: Darcy May Morgan has made her way into the ring, and in just a matter of moments this Universal Women’s Championship match is about to begin!
Persephone: Hopefully it ends just as soon. The quicker we get to Rex’s match, the better. I couldn’t care less about this match.
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
James Peters: And this match is underway! Darcy May Morgan versus Ms. Extreme for the Universal Women’s Championship! This is what we’ve been waiting for ever since Ms. Extreme managed to win the No Way Out match back at Battle of Egypt, and in just a matter of weeks things became very personal between these two! Darcy May Morgan and Ms. Extreme have both been waiting for this moment, and now it’s here! It’s finally time for them to face off at the biggest show of the year with the Universal Women’s Championship and the right to call themselves the face of women’s wrestling on the line-
Rich Russillo: AND MS. EXTREME CHARGES IN WITH A KICK TO THE MIDSECTION! TWIST OF FATE!
James Peters: DOESN’T CONNECT! AS SOON AS MS. EXTREME ATTEMPTED TO DELIVER THE MOVE DARCY LIFTED HER UP ONTO HER SHOULDERS, AND IT LOOKS LIKE DARCY IS ABOUT TO END THIS MATCH BEFORE IT EVER REALLY BEGAN! THE CURTAIN CALL CONNECTS!!!
Rich Russillo: NO IT DOESN’T! MS. EXTREME LANDED ON HER FEET AND GRABBED DARCY’S LEG BEFORE THE KNEE COULD CONNECT WITH HER FACE, AND NOW CAMILLE USES THE LEG TO TAKE DARCY DOWN BEFORE GOING TO LOCK IN THE AVA LOCK!
James Peters: MS. EXTREME CAN’T FULLY APPLY THE SUBMISSION THOUGH, BECAUSE DARCY QUICKLY ROLLS OVER TO THE ROPES BEFORE USING BOTH ARMS TO GRAB ONTO THE BOTTOM ROPE! Ms. Extreme is forced to let go of the submission and back away from Darcy May Morgan, but Darcy definitely doesn’t have much of a smile on her face as she makes it back to her feet! Ms. Extreme on the other hand has a grin on her face, and after everything these two had to say to each other for the past few weeks I can see why. Some may say Darcy had underestimated Ms. Extreme leading up to this match, but now the time for talking is over!
Persephone: Hopefully the time for talking ends soon too. Veena Adams is the only good woman in that division and she was screwed over at Grand Rampage. The last thing I need is for either of these two to leave Pain for Pride as Champion.
Rich Russillo: Darcy May Morgan now gets back up to her feet, AND SHE GOES AFTER MS. EXTREME WITH A LARIAT, BUT CAMILLE MANAGES TO DUCK UNDER IT BEFORE RUNNING THE ROPES HERSELF-
James Peters: DARCY MAY MORGAN SWEEPS CAMILLE’S LEGS, AND NOW SHE GOES FOR A STANDING MOONSAULT KNEE DROP- BUT MS. EXTREME ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY! Darcy May Morgan holding her knee after landing right on top of both of them, AND NOW MS. EXTREME QUICKLY GETS BACK UP BEFORE GRABBING DARCY MAY MORGAN FROM BEHIND, AND SHE GOES FOR A BACK SUPLEX- JUST FOR DARCY MAY MORGAN TO FLIP OUT OF IT AND PULL MS. EXTREME INTO AN O’CONNOR ROLL PIN!
Rich Russillo: MS. EXTREME KICKS OUT PRETTY MUCH IMMEDIATELY- BUT SHE’S QUICKLY MET WITH A ROUNDHOUSE KICK, NAILING HER IN THE SIDE OF HER HEAD! Darcy May Morgan must’ve expected that kickout, immediately finding an answer as Ms. Extreme tried to get back into the match! Stuff like this is exactly why Darcy May Morgan is the Universal Women’s Champion!
Persephone: No… She’s the Universal Women’s Champion because she cashed in her briefcase in the middle of a match, retained a career-long loser, then cheated when she faced her biggest competition yet in Veena Adams. Darcy’s just lucky she’s holding a woman-exclusive Championship. If Rexy was allowed to fight for that title Darcy wouldn’t stand a chance.
James Peters: Ms. Extreme slowly attempts to get back to her feet, and Darcy May Morgan locks in a headlock! That doesn’t last long at all as Camille is able to run with Darcy into the ropes and send Darcy bouncing off of them, and Ms. Extreme went for a spinning heel kick but Darcy May Morgan ducked under it before rebounding off of the ropes- JUST FOR MS. EXTREME TO DELIVER A SPINNING BACK ELBOW TO THE CHAMPION! Now it’s Ms. Extreme that had the answer to Darcy May Morgan, as Darcy holds her nose while attempting to get back up!
Rich Russillo: Ms. Extreme now is trying to get in an arm lock on Darcy May Morgan, but Darcy isn’t down long enough for Ms. Extreme to properly apply the hold! Darcy gets back up to a knee, AND THERE’S A PUNCH TO THE MIDSECTION! Ms. Extreme tries not to lose her grasp on Darcy’s arm, and she’s now attempting an arm wringer as Darcy makes it back up to her feet, but Darcy kicks Ms. Extreme’s leg out from under her! DARCY MAY MORGAN NOW RUNNING THE ROPES AFTER THAT KICK CAUSED CAMILLE TO DROP DOWN TO A KNEE, AND NOW DARCY GOES FOR DDD! DON’T DISS DARCY!!
James Peters: DOESN’T CONNECT! MS. EXTREME DUCKED UNDER IT, AND NOW CAMILLE QUICKLY GOES OVER DARCY AND GRABS THE SAME ARM SHE WAS ATTEMPTING TO WORK ON MOMENTS AGO BEFORE TRANSITIONING INTO A TRIANGLE CHOKE! Ms. Extreme bringing a submission into the match early on, and Darcy May Morgan’s in a bit of trouble here! We’re still early in the match so Darcy May Morgan still has enough fight in her to pull herself onto her feet, but Ms. Extreme is doing everything she can in order to try and pull Darcy down!
Persephone: Honestly I wouldn’t mind if Darcy just tapped out right here and now. It’d save us all a whole lot of time if she just threw the match away now. She already stole the title against someone way more deserving than her back at Grand Rampage. The least she could do is stop us from suffering through some drawn out, unnecessarily long snoozefest of a match.
James Peters: … I don’t think Darcy’s going to be tapping out.
Persephone: Of course not. I never get what I want around here :will:.
Rich Russillo: Darcy May Morgan is using all of her strength in order to pull Ms. Extreme off of the mat, AND I THINK DARCY MAY MORGAN WAS LOOKING TO ESCAPE CAMILLE’S TRIANGLE CHOKE WITH A POWERBOMB, BUT MS. EXTREME MANAGED TO COUNTER THAT WITH A MODIFIED HURRICANRANA! DARCY MAY MORGAN STUMBLES INTO THE CORNER, AND I DON’T THINK SHE CAN BELIEVE WHAT JUST HAPPENED! Darcy’s holding her throat trying to recover from the submission, and I thought she was about to deliver a powerbomb but Ms. Extreme just delivered an amazing counter to it! Camille is definitely delivering tonight, AND NOW SHE CHARGES IN AT THE CHAMPION!
James Peters: JUST TO GET CAUGHT WITH A BACK ELBOW TO THE JAW! DARCY MAY MORGAN NOW SLAMMING MS. EXTREME’S FACE INTO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE, AND DARCY MAY MORGAN RUNS THE ROPES AS CAMILLE STUMBLES OUT OF THE CORNER, BEFORE TAKING CAMILLE DOWN WITH A RUNNING LARIAT! You could tell Darcy’s a bit frustrated with Ms. Extreme after the offense she managed to gain so far, but it looks like Darcy managed to turn things around! Ms. Extreme’s in a seated position trying to come to her senses, BUT DARCY QUICKLY RUNS THE ROPES ONE MORE TIME BEFORE DROPPING CAMILLE WITH A BOOT TO THE FACE!
Rich Russillo: It looks like Darcy May Morgan has taken control over this match, and that’s not what you want if you’re Ms. Extreme! Darcy May Morgan drags Ms. Extreme over towards the corner before rolling out of the ring, AND DARCY GRABS MS. EXTREME’S RIGHT LEG BEFORE SLAMMING IT INTO THE RING POST! Ms. Extreme screaming out in pain as she pulls herself out to the apron, and it looks like a grin is beginning to form on Darcy May Morgan’s face! Darcy May Morgan climbs onto the apron now, AND SHE PULLS MS. EXTREME UP ONTO HER SHOULDERS, POSSIBLY LOOKING FOR A CURTAIN CALL ON THE APRON!
Persephone: YES! HURRY UP AND END THE MATCH!
James Peters: MS. EXTREME SLIPS OUT OF DARCY’S GRASP, RE-ENTERING THE RING! Darcy May Morgan turns around, AND MS. EXTREME GOES FOR A FOREARM-
Rich Russillo: WHICH IS BLOCKED BY DARCY, WHO KICKS MS. EXTREME IN THE LEG SHE JUST ATTACKED MOMENTS AGO! Ms. Extreme clearly caught off guard by that kick, AND NOW DARCY PULLS HERSELF OVER THE TOP ROPE BEFORE PULLING MS. EXTREME DOWN INTO A SUNSET FLIP PIN!
Persephone: And of course, Ms. Extreme kicks out. Trust me, I’m not pleased at all to see Darcy May Morgan start to get the upper hand in this match, but Ms. Extreme really has no one but herself to blame for this. Maybe if she was just better at her job she would’ve won the title already. Ms. Extreme went for a kick of her own as soon as she got back up, but Darcy was able to duck under it before quickly getting back to her feet. I can’t believe this match is continuing. That was the first real pin and it didn’t even get a two :mjcry:.
James Peters: Ms. Extreme attempts a lariat, but Darcy manages to duck under it before grabbing her from behind! Darcy now going for a ripcord clothesline- BUT MS. EXTREME GRABS DARCY BEFORE DELIVERING A HUGE EXPLODER SUPLEX! Ms. Extreme with a big move to get back into this match, and that’s exactly what she needed here! Darcy May Morgan got a huge flurry of offense and even attacked Camille’s leg, but that exploder suplex quickly turned the tables! Darcy May Morgan is pulling herself back up to her feet using the ropes, BUT MS. EXTREME QUICKLY CHARGES IN BEFORE SENDING HER OVER THE TOP ROPE WITH A CLOTHESLINE!
Rich Russillo: Darcy May Morgan falls to the outside, and this could be some valuable time for Ms. Extreme to recover! Darcy sent Camille’s leg into the ringpost a while ago, and there’s no doubt that some serious damage was done there! Ms. Extreme waiting inside of the ring for Darcy to return to the ring, and it looks like she’s not letting those attacks to the leg bother her too much. Darcy finally showing signs of life as she begins to get back up, AND NOW MS. EXTREME RUNS THE ROPES BEFORE DELIVERING A DROPKICK THROUGH THE ROPES!!!
James Peters: NO!!! DARCY MAY MORGAN CAUGHT MS. EXTREME’S LEG IN MID AIR, AND SHE QUICKLY TRANSITIONS INTO A KNEEBAR! DARCY MAY MORGAN HAS MS. EXTREME IN A KNEEBAR OUTSIDE OF THE RING, AND SHE CAN’T WIN THE MATCH OUT AT RINGSIDE BUT SHE CAN DEFINITELY DO ALL THE DAMAGE NEEDED TO HELP HER GET THE JOB DONE! The referee is only just beginning his count, and that gives Darcy May Morgan all the time she needs to try and injure Camille!
Referee: (off-mic) ONE!… TWO!… THREE!… FOUR!…
Persephone: Ms. Extreme never being able to walk again would be a HUGE positive here, but if the match can’t even end outside of the ring what’s the point? It’s not like Darcy May Morgan would actually let this end in a count out anyway. It’s Pain for Pride and we all know Darcy loves making a spectacle out of everything. She probably wants to win in the biggest way possible, although I’m not really sure how big a win against Ms. Extreme could really be.
Referee: (off-mic) FIVE!…. SIX!…
James Peters: Ms. Extreme’s doing everything she can to try and free herself from this submission, but it’s not like she can reach out to the ropes from ringside!
Referee: (off-mic) SEVEN!…. EIGHT!… NINE!
Rich Russillo: AND DARCY MAY MORGAN RELEASES THE SUBMISSION!… Before rolling back into the ring and rolling right back out! Darcy May Morgan clearly isn’t finished with Ms. Extreme, and that kneebar had to have done a lot of damage so I really don’t like how things are looking for Camille! Darcy’s getting exactly what she wanted here as she’s slowly dismantling Camille, AND NOW DARCY GRABS MS. EXTREME BEFORE SENDING HER INTO THE STEEL STEPS!
James Peters: DARCY MAY MORGAN WAS JUST SENT CRASHING INTO THE STEEL STEPS!! DARCY TRIED SENDING CAMILLE INTO THEM BUT AT THE LAST POSSIBLE MOMENT MS. EXTREME MANAGED TO TURN IT AROUND AND SEND THE UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPION CRASHING INTO THE STEEL STEPS! The crowd just exploded as Ms. Extreme managed to turn things around, and had Camille been sent into those steps then who knows if she would’ve been able to recover? Ms. Extreme has taken a lot of damage, but right now she’s in control of the match and it looks like she has something in mind!
Persephone: 🥱 Well her idea better involve ending this match, because I don’t know how long I can stay awake.
Rich Russillo: Ms. Extreme rolls back into the ring before rolling out on the other side of Darcy therefore restarting the count, and now Ms. Extreme grabs Darcy, BEFORE SLAMMING HER FACE FIRST INTO THE RING POST! Darcy May Morgan nearly collapsing, but Ms. Extreme quickly grabs Darcy’s arm and wraps it around the post- BEFORE SLAMMING DARCY’S ARM RIGHT INTO THE RING POST, RETURNING THE FAVOR FOR WHAT DARCY DID TO CAMILLE’S LEG EARLIER!
James Peters: Ms. Extreme quickly rolls Darcy back into the ring, and now she begins to make her way up to the top rope! Darcy May Morgan’s on all fours, trying to make it back to her feet-
James Peters: BUT MS. EXTREME DIVES OFF THE TOP ROPE, STOMPING RIGHT ONTO THE BACK OF DARCY’S ARM! DARCY’S SCREAMING IN PAIN, AND RIGHT NOW SHE’S GOTTA BE LUCKY IF HER SHOULDER’S NOT DISLOCATED! Ms. Extreme also played that very smart as she used her hurt leg to stomp on Darcy’s arm. Had she landed on it from the top rope that would’ve done even more damage to her, and that’s the last thing Camille needs right now!
Rich Russillo: Darcy May Morgan tries to pull herself back up to her feet, AND MS. EXTREME GETS DARCY IN A FRONT FACELOCK, BUT DARCY ATTEMPTS TO PUSH CAMILLE INTO THE CORNER! Ms. Extreme is trying to hold her weight down and stop Darcy, but eventually Darcy’s able to overpower Camille thanks to the leg pain she’s likely still suffering! Darcy May Morgan just rammed Camille into the corner, and now she quickly backs up while holding her arm, BEFORE CHARGING IN AT THE CHALLENGER WITH A RUNNING KNEE-
James Peters: NO! MS. EXTREME QUICKLY PULLS HERSELF OUT OF THE WAY, AND DARCY MAY MORGAN CRASHES KNEE FIRST INTO THE TURNBUCKLE! DARCY TURNS AWAY FROM THE CORNER HOLDING HER KNEE IN PAIN-
Persephone: YES!!! FINALLY!!! MS. EXTREME WITH A KICK TO THE STOMACH, AND NOW SHE DELIVERS THE TWIST OF FATE! MS. EXTREME GOING FOR THE COVER, AND I DON’T EVEN CARE IF SHE WINS I JUST WANT THIS MATCH TO END ALREADY!
James Peters: DARCY MAY MORGAN GETS THE SHOULDER UP JUST BEFORE THREE! DARCY MAY MORGAN IS STILL IN THIS MATCH!
Rich Russillo: :krabs: BUT MS. EXTREME QUICKLY GRABS DARCY’S ARM AND LOCKS HER IN AN ARMBAR!
Rich Russillo: DARCY MAY MORGAN HAD TO USE THE HURT ARM TO GET THE SHOULDER UP, AND MS. EXTREME WAS ABLE TO CAPITALIZE ON THAT BY PUTTING THE CHAMPION IN AN ARMBAR! Both of these women have been fighting extremely smart tonight, but right now Ms. Extreme is proving exactly why she has what it takes to become the Universal Women’s Champion! Unlike Darcy’s submission from earlier, this armbar is actually taking place in the ring, meaning if Darcy taps out we’ll be seeing a new Champion!
Persephone: Darcy was an idiot for even trying that submission outside of the ring. Sure, she could hurt Camille. Sure, she needed to find a way to save herself from the dropkick, but who cares about any of that if she can’t actually win the match?
James Peters: I don’t think Darcy May Morgan is one to be doubted, especially this far in her Championship reign! She’s more than proven that she knows what she’s doing.
Persephone: She shouldn’t even be the Universal Women’s Champion right now! Veena Adams needs a rematch against her, it’s only fair.
James Peters: Darcy May Morgan is struggling in this submission, and right now Ms. Extreme is fully in control of this match! Darcy May Morgan is trying to stretch her legs out to the ropes while using her free arm to try and free herself from the submission, but Ms. Extreme has that armbar applied as tightly as possible! The last thing Darcy May Morgan wants is to lose her Championship at the biggest show of the year by tapping out, but the longer she’s in this submission the closer she comes to doing exactly that!
Rich Russillo: DARCY MANAGES TO GET HER FOOT ONTO THE BOTTOM ROPE! It looks like she won’t be tapping out after all- BUT MS. EXTREME QUICKLY GETS BACK TO HER FEET, AND AS SOON AS SHE DOES SHE BOUNCES OFF OF THE ROPES AND DELIVERS A HUGE PENALTY KICK TO THE UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPION! Ms. Extreme quickly pulls Darcy May Morgan up, BEFORE DELIVERING AN EXPLODER SUPLEX INTO THE TURNBUCKLES! MS. EXTREME JUST SENT DARCY CRASHING INTO THE CORNER, and Darcy may not have tapped out to the apron but she still needs to find a way to get back into this match!
James Peters: Darcy May Morgan is trying to pull herself back up, AND MS. EXTREME GOES FOR A SECOND TWIST OF FATE- BUT DARCY SHOVES MS. EXTREME AWAY FROM HER! Ms. Extreme stopping herself and turning around before she could end up bouncing off of the ropes- BUT DARCY MAY MORGAN CHARGES IN AND CATCHES CAMILLE WITH A STEP UP KNEE STRIKE! MS. EXTREME MIGHT’VE JUST BEEN KNOCKED OUT BY THAT KNEE STRIKE, AND NOW DARCY TAKES HER CHALLENGER AND CHARGES INTO THE CORNER, BEFORE RUNNING UP THE TURNBUCKLES AND CONNECTING WITH A TORNADO DDT! DARCY WITH THE COVER NOW!
Persephone: 🙄🙄🙄 And Camille got her shoulder up. I’m not even surprised at this point. I’ve pretty much accepted the fact that these two are just gonna fight forever, which really sucks because there’s still so many non-Rex matches to go through and those are gonna be just as long and uninteresting as this. I’m just grateful that Darcy actually tried ending the match. There really hasn’t been enough pinfalls in this match for me. Darcy’s pulling Camille back up to her feet, and it looks like she’s lifting her up into a fireman’s carry.
Rich Russillo: BUT MS. EXTREME SLIPS OUT OF IT BEFORE SHOVING DARCY INTO THE CORNER! DARCY TURNS TOWARDS CAMILLE, AND MS. EXTREME NOW CHARGES IN AT DARCY MAY MORGAN-
James Peters: WAIT, DARCY TRIED GETTING BOTH FEET UP TO PUSH CAMILLE AWAY, BUT INSTEAD CAMILLE MANAGED TO GRAB HER LEGS BEFORE SWINGING THEM OUT THROUGH THE ROPES, LEAVING DARCY PRETTY MUCH SITTING ON THE MIDDLE ROPE! MS. EXTREME NOW QUICKLY RUNS THE ROPES, AND SHE DELIVERS A HUGE BASEBALL SLIDE GERMAN SUPLEX TO THE UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPION! Darcy May Morgan is down! What a move by Ms. Extreme!
Rich Russillo: Ms. Extreme is beginning to climb up to the top rope, but you can tell her leg is bothering her as she slowly climbs up top! I don’t know if whatever she’s going for is the best idea, but I don’t really think Camille cares as long as she’s able to capture the Universal Women’s Championship! Ms. Extreme finally makes it to the top rope, and now-
James Peters: DARCY MAY MORGAN QUICKLY GETS BACK UP TO HER FEET AND HITS CAMILLE WITH THE TTYN! DARCY MAY MORGAN JUST KNOCKED OUT MS. EXTREME, AND NOW IT LOOKS LIKE SHE HAS AN IDEA AS SHE GOES OUT TO THE APRON!
Rich Russillo: Darcy May Morgan is climbing up to the middle turnbuckle from the outside and using her right arm to get Camille in a front facelock, and she clearly has something big planned, but seeing where these two are right now really concerns me! Darcy May Morgan’s match against Cameron Ella Ava ended in a double count out following a huge superplex to the outside of the ring that Darcy was on the receiving end of! Is Darcy about to repeat history!?
James Peters: :krabs:
Persephone: :oh: DARCY MAY MORGAN LIFTED CAMILLE OFF THE TURNBUCKLES AND DROPPED HER HEADFIRST ONTO THE RING APRON WITH AN AVALANCHE BRAINBUSTER! Come on, there’s no way Camille isn’t AT LEAST concussed or something after that!
Rich Russillo: Both women are down at ringside, what did Darcy May Morgan just do!?
Persephone: What these two SHOULD’VE been doing from the start! This match has been so boring but finally Darcy did something to spice things up with the brainbuster onto the apron! I’ve been waiting for something like this the entire match, now hopefully this match is over. There’s no way Camille can continue after that.
James Peters: I hate to say it but you might be right! Darcy May Morgan rolls Camille’s body back into the ring, and Ms. Extreme isn’t showing any signs of life here! Darcy May Morgan goes for the cover, and this match might just be over!
James Peters: WHAT!? MS. EXTREME JUST GOT THE SHOULDER UP ONCE AGAIN! MS. EXTREME IS STILL IN THIS MATCH EVEN AFTER RECEIVING AN AVALANCHE BRAINBUSTER ONTO THE HARDEST PART OF THE RING, AND DARCY MAY MORGAN CAN’T BELIEVE HER EYES! How is this match still on!?
Persephone: I don’t know, but I wish it’d end already! How the hell does Ms. Extreme just kick out of brainbusters onto the ring apron!?
Rich Russillo: Well Ms. Extreme wants that Universal Women’s Championship more than anything else on the planet right now, so I can’t really blame her! Darcy May Morgan is all over Ms. Extreme right now, AS SHE STOMPS DOWN ON THE SIDE OF CAMILLE’S KNEE! We can give Camille all the credit in the world for how she keeps kicking out, but if Darcy keeps fighting like this I don’t see how this match could last much longer!
James Peters: Darcy May Morgan pulls Ms. Extreme back up to her feet, AND DARCY ATTEMPTS TO LIFT CAMILLE UP FOR A SUPLEX- BUT MS. EXTREME MANAGES TO PULL HERSELF DOWN, AND THE DAMAGE DOWN TO DARCY’S ARM MIGHT’VE HELPED HER! Now it’s Ms. Extreme trying to pull Darcy up, but thanks to Camille’s leg Darcy is able to pull herself back down! DARCY WITH A PUNCH TO CAMILLE’S MIDSECTION! NOW CAMILLE WITH A PUNCH TO DARCY’S MIDSECTION! NOW DARCY WITH A PUNCH TO CAMILLE! NOW CAMILLE WITH A PUNCH- BUT DARCY KICKS AT CAMILLE’S LEG ONE MORE TIME BEFORE LIFTING HER UP!
Rich Russillo: BUT MS. EXTREME MANAGES TO DROP BACK DOWN TO HER FEET ONE MORE TIME, AND SHE LIFTS DARCY INTO A SUPLEX POSITION BEFORE DROPPING DARCY STOMACH-FIRST ONTO THE TOP ROPE! Darcy May Morgan is hanging on the top rope, AND NOW MS. EXTREME RUNS THE ROPES BEFORE DELIVERING A HUGE BIG BOOT TO THE SIDE OF DARCY’S SKULL! Ms. Extreme immediately backs into the corner as she’s forced to try and shake the pain out of her leg, but Darcy May Morgan’s lucky to still have any life left in her after that boot to the side of the head!
James Peters: Ms. Extreme grabbing onto Darcy May Morgan’s legs before holding her under the ropes, AND NOW THERE’S A SLINGSHOT CATAPULT INTO THE BOTTOM ROPE! MS. EXTREME JUST SENT DARCY MAY MORGAN THROAT FIRST INTO THE BOTTOM ROPE! Darcy rolls back into the ring holding her throat, and I’m still in disbelief over Camille being in this match after the brainbuster onto the apron, BUT CAMILLE GRABS RIGHT BACK ONTO DARCY’S LEGS, BEFORE DELIVERING A SECOND SLINGSHOT CATAPULT, THIS TIME SENDING THE UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPION CRASHING FACE FIRST INTO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE!
Persephone: Honestly I can’t believe Camille’s still in this match either, but more importantly I wish she wasn’t. Darcy May Morgan is using the ropes just to stay on her feet, and now Camille begins to run the ropes, BUT DARCY GOES FOR THE FACE ACHE! THE BICYCLE KICK-
Rich Russillo: DOESN’T CONNECT! MS. EXTREME MANAGED TO DUCK UNDER THE BICYCLE KICK BEFORE BOUNCING OFF OF THE OPPOSITE PAIR OF ROPES, AND AS SOON AS DARCY TURNS TOWARDS CAMILLE, CAMILLE JUMPS OVER DARCY BEFORE DELIVERING THE CODE RED! THE SUNSET FLIP BOMB CONNECTS ON THE CHAMPION, AND MS. EXTREME KEEPS THE SHOULDERS DOWN FOR THE PIN! THIS MATCH MIGHT ACTUALLY OVER!
James Peters: DARCY MAY MORGAN STAYS IN THIS MATCH! Ms. Extreme looks a bit frustrated to see that Darcy is still in this match, but this is why Darcy’s been Universal Women’s Champion for so long! She might just be one of the most resilient people we have here in EAW, and that Championship is exactly why! We all saw what it took just for Darcy to win that title and make it to Pain for Pride as Champion. The last thing she wants is to lose and have her reign end at the biggest show of the year!
Persephone: If she doesn’t want to lose maybe she should consider not letting Ms. Extreme get back into the match every time she has the upper hand. If it was Rexy, Camille would’ve already lost.
James Peters: Didn’t they fight to a no contest back at Shock Value?
Rich Russillo: Ms. Extreme is making her way up to the top rope, and this match actually might be coming to an end very shortly! Darcy May Morgan is still down after receiving the Code Red!
Persephone: FINALLY :blessed:!
Rich Russillo: MS. EXTREME DIVES! A BLIND FURY!!!
James Peters: DARCY MAY MORGAN ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY!
Rich Russillo: BUT MS. EXTREME WAS ABLE TO ROLL TO HER FEET! BOTH COMPETITORS ARE BACK UP, AND DARCY MAY MORGAN CHARGES AT MS. EXTREME, BUT CAMILLE IS ABLE TO PULL DOWN THE TOP ROPE AND CAUSE DARCY TO FLY OVER IT AND FALL OUT TO RINGSIDE! Darcy May Morgan was just sent out to ringside, and it looks like Ms. Extreme has an idea in mind once again! Camille went for something like this earlier in the match and it didn’t go her way, BUT I DON’T THINK SHE CARES AS SHE QUICKLY BEGINS TO RUN THE ROPES AS SOON AS SHE SEES DARCY GET BACK UP TO HER FEET!
James Peters: SUICIDE DIVE BY MS. EXTREME, SENDING DARCY MAY MORGAN INTO THE BARRICADE!! THAT SUICIDE DIVE WAS PERFECT, AND IT WAS ENOUGH TO TAKE OUT THE CHAMPION! Ms. Extreme sacrificed herself just to drop the Champion momentarily, and if that doesn’t show just how much Camille wants to win that title then I don’t know what will! Ms. Extreme quickly brings Darcy back into the ring, and now she follows behind as she-
Rich Russillo: DDD!!!!! DON’T DISS DARCY CONNECTS!!!
James Peters: DARCY PRETTY MUCH SPRANG BACK TO HER FEET AS CAMILLE ROLLED BACK INTO THE RING BEFORE DELIVERING THAT SHINING WIZARD TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD!
Persephone: FINALLY A BIG MOVE, NOW HURRY UP AND PIN HER!
James Peters: DARCY MAY MORGAN IS STILL HURTING AFTER CRASHING INTO THE BARRICADE, BUT SHE SLOWLY PUSHES CAMILLE ONTO HER BACK BEFORE PULLING HERSELF ON TOP OF THE CHALLENGER! THIS HAS TO BE IT, THE MATCH IS OVER! DARCY MAY MORGAN RETAINS THE UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPIONSHIP AFTER A DON’T DISS DARCY OUT OF NOWHERE!
Rich Russillo: THAT’S IT! DARCY MAY MORGAN RETAINS!
Persephone: The match is finally over :blessed:!!!
James Peters: NO!!! LOOK!!! MS. EXTREME GOT HER FOOT ON THE BOTTOM ROPE! THIS MATCH WAS SO CLOSE TO COMING TO AN END, BUT MS. EXTREME JUST BARELY MANAGED TO SAVE IT FOR HERSELF BY PUTTING HER FOOT ON THE BOTTOM ROPE! Darcy May Morgan was just sent crashing into the barricade and hadn’t recovered enough to drag Camille away from the ropes! Darcy just needed to get the cover and I thought she would’ve gotten the job done, but Ms. Extreme was clearly aware of her surroundings!
Persephone: You’ve got to be kidding me. As if this show couldn’t get any worse, I’m now being forced to watch this match continue all because Darcy May Morgan’s a complete idiot and couldn’t drag Camille away from the ropes. If Veena Adams isn’t just gonna be handed the Championship we really need to consider throwing it out or something, because CLEARLY there’s nobody in this division actually qualified to hold that title.
Rich Russillo: :lupe: Darcy May Morgan doesn’t look too happy to see Ms. Extreme stay in this match either, but it looks like Darcy’s come up with an idea to keep Camille down!
James Peters: Darcy May Morgan’s rolled out of the ring before pulling Ms. Extreme out by her legs, AND GETTING HER IN AN INVERTED ALABAMA SLAM POSITION! Darcy May Morgan is holding Ms. Extreme by her legs as she slowly begins to approach the steel steps, and I think I know exactly what Darcy’s looking for here!
Rich Russillo: Yeah, this is exactly how Darcy defeated Veena Adams back at Grand Rampage!
James Peters: DARCY MAY MORGAN WITH AN INVERTED ALABAMA SLAM INTO THE STEEL STEPS!!
Rich Russillo: WHAT!?!? WHEELBARROW FACEBUSTER!!! AS DARCY WENT FOR THE INVERTED ALABAMA SLAM, MS. EXTREME MANAGED TO FLIP DARCY INTO A WHEELBARROW FACEBUSTER, CAUSING DARCY’S FACE TO SLAM RIGHT INTO THE CORNER OF THE STEEL STEPS! Darcy May Morgan aimed to finish Camille off the same way she did to Veena Adams back at Grand Rampage, and instead Darcy just suffered a brutal shot into the steel steps, causing a huge gash to form on her forehead! Both women are down at ringside, but somehow it looks like this match isn’t over! Ms. Extreme is still somehow fighting after already receiving the Don’t Diss Darcy!
James Peters: Ms. Extreme is able to use the ring apron to pull herself back to her feet, and it looks like she’s noticed Darcy May Morgan’s positioning! Darcy managed to pull herself in a seated position against the steel steps to try and recover following that huge wheelbarrow facebuster, but it looks like Camille got an idea thanks to that! If she’s planning to deliver the same move she hit Darcy with just a few weeks ago, this could be really bad! Ms. Extreme is beginning to back up, AND NOW SHE CHARGES IN BEFORE GOING FOR A RUNNING METEORA TO DARCY, WHOSE HEAD IS UP AGAINST THE STEEL STEPS!!
Rich Russillo: DARCY MANAGES TO MOVE OUT OF THE WAY! DARCY MOVED OUT OF THE WAY, AND NOW THE CHAMPION QUICKLY ROLLS INTO THE RING BEFORE ROLLING BACK OUT! Camille missing that meteora was the last thing she needed after the damage done to her throughout the match! She just gave Darcy a clear opening to get back into this one, and that’s not good news if you’re Ms. Extreme! Camille’s holding her hurt leg in pain, and Darcy now grabs her challenger before sending her right back into the ring, likely looking to actually end the match this time!
Persephone: I feel like we’ve been through this a thousand times already, and not once has this match actually come to an end. I’m starting to lose faith in this ever ending. I might as well just leave.
James Peters: But Ms. Extreme’s hurt this time around! She’s clearly suffering the effects of her knees crashing against the steel steps, and it looks like Darcy’s about to capitalize off of that right now! DARCY LIFTS MS. EXTREME UP ONTO HER SHOULDERS, AND NOW ONCE AGAIN DARCY GOES FOR THE CURTAIN CALL!!!
Rich Russillo: BUT ONCE AGAIN MS. EXTREME FINDS AN ANSWER TO IT, AS SHE COUNTERS THE MOVE WITH A DROP TOE HOLD AS SOON AS SHE MANAGED TO LAND ON HER FEET, AND NOW CAMILLE QUICKLY PUTS DARCY IN THE AVA LOCK!!! CAMILLE DID SOMETHING SIMILAR EARLIER IN THE MATCH BY ATTEMPTING TO APPLY THAT SUBMISSION BUT DARCY WAS ABLE TO GET TO THE ROPES! THESE TWO ARE IN THE CENTER OF THE RING THIS TIME AROUND, THERE’S NO WAY THIS MATCH DOESN’T END RIGHT HERE! Both Ms. Extreme and Darcy May Morgan have done everything they could to fight through their pain, but it looks like Camille’s about to take home the victory, AND the Championship!
Persephone: As long as this match actually DOES end, I don’t really care what happens! Darcy May Morgan is trying as hard as she can to pull herself towards the ropes but luckily for me all the damage she’s taken in the match is starting to catch up to her! I don’t see Darcy making it out of this submission this far into the match. We’re like.. What, an hour into it?
James Peters: :skip: No it hasn’t been an hour.
Persephone: Sure feels like it :francis:.
James Peters: Darcy May Morgan is getting closer and closer to reaching the ropes, but she also looks like she can’t take much more of this! Darcy’s had her head slammed into the steel steps just a little while ago, and now she’s trapped in this Ava Lock! I hate to say it but if Darcy doesn’t find her way out of this soon then there’s no way she’s making it out of this match with her Championship reign still intact! This match has clearly taken its toll on both Elitists and it’s really starting to show!
Rich Russillo: Darcy’s getting closer and closer to the ropes, BUT I DON’T THINK DARCY CAN TAKE THE PAIN ANY LONGER! DARCY-
James Peters: MAKES IT!!! DARCY JUST BARELY MANAGES TO GRAB ONTO THE BOTTOM ROPE, AND NOW SHE’S FREE FROM THE SUBMISSION-
Rich Russillo: BUT WAIT! MS. EXTREME GRABS DARCY BY HER HURT ARM AND DRAGS HER AWAY FROM THE ROPES! CAMILLE NOW LOOKING FOR THE RED HANDED SUBMISSION!
James Peters: SHE DOESN’T GET IT THOUGH! DARCY MANAGES TO USE HER OTHER ARM TO PULL CAMILLE INTO A SCHOOL BOY ROLL UP BEFORE THE SUBMISSION COULD BE LOCKED IN!
Rich Russillo: AND MS. EXTREME IS OUT- BUT DARCY ONCE AGAIN IS ABLE TO GO AFTER HER LEGS JUST AS SOON AS SHE GETS BACK UP! Darcy kicked Ms. Extreme’s leg out from under her and brought her down to a knee, AND NOW DARCY MAY MORGAN RUNS THE ROPES BEFORE- NO! MS. EXTREME QUICKLY POPS BACK UP AND SLIPS BEHIND DARCY BEFORE DELIVERING A DRAGON SUPLEX! Ms. Extreme getting back up pretty much having to limp for the time being, AND NOW SHE QUICKLY GOES TO BOUNCE OFF OF THE ROPES BEFORE-
James Peters: BEFORE GETTING HIT WITH A STEP UP KNEE STRIKE BY DARCY MAY MORGAN! Darcy nearly knocking Camille’s lights out there, AND NOW DARCY MAY MORGAN FOLLOWS IT UP WITH THE TTYN- BUT THAT WAS THE SAME ARM CAMILLE ATTACKED THROUGHOUT THIS MATCH, AND DARCY JUST RE-AGGRAVATED THE PAIN DELIVERING THAT KNOCKOUT PUNCH! Ms. Extreme is down, but she clearly knew exactly what she was doing seeing the state Darcy May Morgan is in! One of Ms. Extreme’s most dangerous submissions target the arm, and clearly Camille knew exactly what to bring to the table tonight!
Persephone: Why are you acting like Camille’s some sorta genius? She’s the one laid out right now, not Darcy.
Rich Russillo: Yeah, and it looks like Darcy May Morgan has something big planned! You don’t really see this too often, but Darcy May Morgan is actually making her way up to the top rope! Ms. Extreme is only just barely starting to come to her senses as Darcy gets into position, AND IT LOOKS LIKE THAT’S WHAT THE CHAMPION WANTS! DARCY MAY MORGAN DIVES AS CAMILLE IS IN A SEATED POSITION, AND THERE’S A HUGE DIVING METEORA TO THE SEATED MS. EXTREME! WHAT A GREAT MOVE BY THE CHAMPION, AND DARCY HOOKS THE LEG!
James Peters: MS. EXTREME KICKS OUT! Darcy May Morgan is quick to try and capitalize though, as she lifts Ms. Extreme back up before approaching the corner, AND DELIVERING A BACK SUPLEX DROP ONTO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE! DARCY MAY MORGAN NOW RUNS THE ROPES AS MS. EXTREME STUMBLES OUT OF THE CORNER-
Rich Russillo: BUT MS. EXTREME MANAGES TO HIT DARCY WITH A BOOT TO THE FACE! Darcy May Morgan stumbles back, AND NOW MS. EXTREME GOES FOR A LARIAT- BUT DARCY MAY MORGAN CATCHES CAMILLE AND GOES FOR AN STO!
James Peters: CAMILLE SLIPPED OUT OF IT RIGHT BEFORE IT COULD CONNECT THOUGH, AND NOW SHE GOES TO LOCK IN A FUJIWARA ARMBAR! Darcy is able to push Camille off of her before too much damage could really be done- AND NOW DARCY JUMPS UP AND PULLS MS. EXTREME INTO A TRIANGLE CHOKE OF HER OWN! DARCY MAY MORGAN WITH HER OWN TRIANGLE CHOKE AFTER MS. EXTREME USED ONE EARLY IN THE MATCH, AND CAMILLE ALMOST IMMEDIATELY DROPS TO A KNEE THANKS TO HER HURT LEG GIVING OUT! This isn’t good, Ms. Extreme might have to tap out soon!
Persephone: You sure? I’m pretty sure Camille’s one of those weirdos that’d refuse to tap out even if her life was on the line. Darcy’s more likely to somehow rip Camille’s head off than actually make her tap out.
Rich Russillo: That might be true, but Ms. Extreme could still pass out and she actually looks very close to doing that :lupe:! I don’t know if she really has enough left in her to escape this submission! Ms. Extreme’s trying as hard as she can to fight out of this, but this match might be coming to an end anyway!
Persephone: Camille *does* look like she’s starting to fade, and I’m glad. I hate that this match lasted so long, but if it could end soon that’d be amazing-
Persephone: Nevermind :snoop:.
James Peters: MS. EXTREME IS GETTING BACK TO BOTH FEET, AND SHE MANAGES TO POWER DARCY MAY MORGAN UP BEFORE DELIVERING THE QUEEN’S RAMPAGE! THE QUEEN’S RAMPAGE CONNECTS, BUT CAMILLE DOESN’T STOP AT ONE! SHE LIFTS DARCY UP ONE MORE TIME, AND SHE CHARGES TOWARDS THE CORNER BEFORE DELIVERING THE QUEENS RAMPAGE INTO THE TURNBUCKLES! BOTH COMPETITORS DROP DOWN TO THE MAT, BUT MS. EXTREME IS STILL ALIVE, THIS MATCH IS STILL ON!
Rich Russillo: Ms. Extreme is rolling out to the ring apron, and now she begins to slowly make her way up to the top rope! Darcy May Morgan still hasn’t moved after taking those Queen’s Rampages, AND NOW MS. EXTREME GOES FOR A BLIND FURY!!! A BLIND FURY CONNECTS THIS TIME!! MS. EXTREME HURT HER LEG GOING FOR THAT DOUBLE FOOT STOMP, BUT SHE’S STILL ABLE TO QUICKLY PULL HERSELF OVER THE CHAMPION FOR THE COVER! THIS MATCH HAS TO BE OVER, WE’RE ABOUT TO SEE A NEW UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPION IN THE NAME OF MS. EXTREME!!!
Persephone: WHAT!?!? WHY!?!? WHY!?!? WHY DID DARCY MAY MORGAN JUST GET HER SHOULDER UP!?!? WHY ISN’T THIS MATCH OVER YET!?!?
James Peters: DARCY MAY MORGAN ISN’T WILLING TO LOSE HER CHAMPIONSHIP JUST YET! DARCY MAY MORGAN SOMEHOW MANAGED TO GET THE SHOULDER UP JUST BEFORE THREE! Ms. Extreme can’t believe her eyes, but this is the type of resilience that helped Darcy keep her Championship! It was never going to be easy to dethrone Darcy May Morgan, but this is Pain for Pride! This is the biggest show of the year, and Darcy’s clearly putting her best foot forward tonight!
Rich Russillo: Ms. Extreme rolls off of Darcy, and you’ve gotta wonder what’s running through Ms. Extreme’s mind right now! These two have thrown pretty much everything at each other, and somehow after receiving A Blind Fury Darcy May Morgan actually managed to kick out! Ms. Extreme looks like she just got an idea though!
Persephone: Are any of her ideas actually good though? I’m pretty sure that was one of her biggest moves she just threw at Darcy, and Darcy kicked out..
James Peters: Ms. Extreme lifts Darcy up onto the top turnbuckle, and now she begins to slowly climb up before getting the Champion in a front facelock! Oh no, I think I know what she’s planning!
James Peters: MS. EXTREME WITH A TWIST OF FATE OFF THE TOP ROPE!
Rich Russillo: NO! DARCY MAY MORGAN JUST BARELY MANAGED TO PUSH CAMILLE OFF OF HER, AND CAMILLE JUST CRASHED ONTO THE MAT! DARCY MAY MORGAN NOW GETS HERSELF IN POSITION, AND NOW SHE GOES FOR THE MOVE TO PUT THIS MATCH AWAY!! THE GRAND FINALE!!!! DIVING SHOOTING STAR PRESS!!!!
James Peters: DOESN’T CONNECT!!! MS. EXTREME JUST BARELY MANAGED TO ROLL OUT OF THE WAY AND AVOID WHAT EASILY WOULD’VE BEEN THE FINISHING MOVE OF THIS MATCH!
Rich Russillo: Darcy May Morgan is known for only using that move at big events, and had it connected there’s no doubt she would’ve retained, but somehow Ms. Extreme found it in her to roll out of the way! The match was THIS close to coming to an end, but somehow Ms. Extreme found a way to avoid it! These two clearly want that Championship more than anything, they’re not letting anything keep them down!
Persephone: Please stop reminding me that the match almost ended a hundred times, especially when it’s still NOT over yet.
James Peters: Darcy May Morgan has crawled into the corner, and as Ms. Extreme makes her way back to her feet she approaches the Champion- BUT AS SHE GOES TO GRAB DARCY SHE’S PULLED INTO A REVERSE STO, SLAMMING HER FACE INTO THE MIDDLE TURNBUCKLE! It looks like Ms. Extreme’s nose may have been busted from that, blood is beginning to pour out from it! Darcy May Morgan crawls out of the corner and uses the ropes to pull herself back up to her feet, and now it looks like she has something in mind!
Rich Russillo: YEAH, SHE’S GRABBING ONTO BOTH OF CAMILLE’S ARMS AND HAS HER FOOT PLACED ON THE BACK OF HER HEAD! DARCY’S ABOUT TO DO THE SAME THING SHE DID TO RETAIN HER CHAMPIONSHIP AGAINST HARPER LEE AT SHOCK VALUE! DARCY MAY MORGAN WITH THE ARM TRAPPED FACE STOMP INTO THE TURNBUCKLE-
James Peters: WAIT! MS. EXTREME WAS ABLE TO FREE ONE OF HER ARMS! DARCY’S ARM IS STILL A BIT HURT SO MS. EXTREME WAS ABLE TO FREE HERSELF, AND NOW SHE GRABS DARCY’S OTHER ARM BEFORE DELIVERING AN ARM WRENCH THAT SENDS HER FACE FIRST INTO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE! MS. EXTREME JUST BARELY MANAGING TO AVOID THE SAME FATE HARPER DID JUST LIKE SHE MANAGED TO STOP HERSELF FROM GOING THROUGH WHAT VEENA DID, AND NOW CAMILLE GETS BACK UP BEFORE DROPPING DARCY WITH A HUGE DISCUS LARIAT!
Rich Russillo: Darcy May Morgan slowly manages to pull herself back up to her feet- BUT MS. EXTREME RUNS THE ROPES BEFORE DELIVERING A HUGE CLOTHESLINE, SENDING BOTH HERSELF AND THE CHAMPION OVER THE TOP ROPE AND OUT OF THE RING! This fight has spilled out of the ring, but I don’t think Ms. Extreme really cares! She’s climbing right back up onto the ring apron, and it looks like she’s waiting for Darcy May Morgan to get back up to her feet!
James Peters: Darcy May Morgan gets back up, AND NOW MS. EXTREME CHARGES IN BEFORE-
Rich Russillo: DARCY MAY MORGAN WITH A LEG SWEEP, DROPPING CAMILLE FACE FIRST ONTO THE APRON! DARCY QUICKLY PULLS CAMILLE UP ONTO HER SHOULDERS, AND SHE DELIVERS THE CURTAIN CALL OUTSIDE OF THE RING! DARCY MAY MORGAN FINALLY HITS THE CURTAIN CALL AFTER BEING UNABLE TO THIS ENTIRE MATCH, BUT IT CONNECTED OUTSIDE OF THE RING AND IT LOOKS LIKE BOTH COMPETITORS ARE DOWN! DARCY MAY MORGAN CAN’T CAPITALIZE!
Persephone: Oh my God. JUST GET UP ALREADY! YOU ALREADY HIT THE FINISHER! JUST HURRY UP AND PIN HER!
James Peters: Darcy May Morgan is only just beginning to stir, meanwhile Ms. Extreme is out! Darcy May Morgan rolls back into the ring…
Persephone: YES! JUST TAKE THE COUNT OUT WIN!
James Peters: But she rolls back out of the ring to restart the count!
James Peters: Darcy clearly doesn’t want this match to end without her decisively defeating Ms. Extreme, and if she’s able to quickly get Camille back into the ring she might just get what she wants! Darcy pulls Camille back up, and slowly she actually does manage to roll her challenger back inside of the ring!
Rich Russillo: Darcy May Morgan seems to understand that there’s no way Ms. Extreme won’t kick out after how much time she had to recover, SO DARCY LIFTS CAMILLE UP INTO A FIREMAN’S CARRY BEFORE DELIVERING A HUGE TKO- AND WAIT A SECOND! SHE DOESN’T STOP THERE! DARCY MAY MORGAN ROLLS OVER ON TOP OF MS. EXTREME, AND IT LOOKS LIKE SHE JUST LOCKED IN THE ENCORE! DARCY MAY MORGAN HAS THE DRAGON SLEEPER LOCKED IN ON MS. EXTREME! THAT’S IT! THE REF MIGHT AS WELL RING THE BELL NOW, THERE’S NO WAY CAMILLE GETS OUT OF THIS!
Persephone: She better not find some stupid way to get out of this.
James Peters: I don’t know if she even has time to get out of this! Ms. Extreme already looks like she’s beginning to fade, and she DID just get hit with the Curtain Call moments ago! This match might actually be ending in just a few more moments, and I can’t even imagine how heartbreaking it’d be for Ms. Extreme to go out like that at the biggest show of the year! This is both her AND Darcy May Morgan’s first ever Pain for Pride main event!
Rich Russillo: Yeah, but I don’t think there’s anything that can be done at this point! MS. EXTREME IS OUT! THAT’S IT, THE MATCH IS OVER!
Persephone: :noah: It’s not.. But I really wish it was. Instead, Ms. Extreme found like a burst of energy or something and she’s actually trying to pull Darcy off of her. At this point I can’t even be that surprised, because that’s ALL this stupid match has been! Every time it looks like these two should be done for they somehow find a way to get back into the match!
James Peters: MS. EXTREME MANAGES TO ROLL HERSELF AND DARCY AROUND TOWARDS THE ROPES, AND CAMILLE QUICKLY GRABS ONTO THE BOTTOM ROPE! Camille did everything she could to pull Darcy’s arm off of her, and as Darcy tried to stop her, Camille was able to roll to the ropes! Darcy was extremely smart for using her good arm to execute that submission but in the end Ms. Extreme managed to survive! I don’t know how these two are doing it. This is an amazing performance we’re seeing by both the Champion and the challenger!
Rich Russillo: Darcy May Morgan is forced to release the submission thanks to Ms. Extreme making it to the ropes, BUT DARCY DOESN’T WAIT TO MAKE HER NEXT MOVE! DARCY QUICKLY BEGINS TO RUN THE ROPES, AND SHE GOES FOR ANOTHER DON’T DISS DARCY!!
James Peters: BUT MS. EXTREME IS ABLE TO DUCK UNDER IT! CAMILLE QUICKLY GETS BACK UP TO HER FEET BEFORE GRABBING DARCY FROM BEHIND, AND THERE’S A HUGE SAITO SUPLEX!
Rich Russillo: It looks like Camille has reached a second wind! Camille gets back to her feet, and she’s still slightly limping and her nose is still bloody, BUT AS DARCY FINDS HER WAY INTO THE OPPOSITE CORNER CAMILLE COMES CHARGING IN, BEFORE DELIVERING A HUGE RUNNING FOREARM SMASH! Ms. Extreme tossing Darcy out of the corner, and now she begins to make her way up to the top rope! I don’t really know what Ms. Extreme has in mind here, but she’s on fire right now and I don’t think Darcy May Morgan knows what to do!
James Peters: MS. EXTREME DIVES OFF THE TOP ROPE, AND SHE GOES FOR THE GLASS CEILING!!
Rich Russillo: :krabs: BUT DARCY MAY MORGAN HAD IT SCOUTED! DARCY MANAGED TO CATCH CAMILLE BY THE WAIST, AND NOW SHE ROLLS HER INTO AN O’CONNOR ROLL PIN! NO, NOT LIKE THIS! NOT AT THE BIGGEST SHOW OF THE YEAR!
Rich Russillo: MS. EXTREME KICKS OUT! Moments ago I said Darcy didn’t know what to do, but clearly I was wrong! DARCY MAY MORGAN NOW WITH A ROUNDHOUSE KICK TO THE CHALLENGER JUST AS MS. EXTREME TRIED TO GET BACK UP!
James Peters: IT DOESN’T CONNECT! MS. EXTREME DUCKED UNDER IT! AND CAMILLE HITS DARCY WITH A HUGE ELBOW TO THE FACE! Darcy May Morgan manages to retaliate with a forearm, and now Ms. Extreme hits one of her own in return! These two are going back and forth with each other, and this has really just turned into a huge brawl, similar to what we’ve been seeing from these two for weeks! Ms. Extreme manages to get the upper hand as Darcy May Morgan is backed into the corner, AND NOW MS. EXTREME BEGINS STOMPING AWAY AT THE CHAMPION! DARCY IS TRAPPED IN A SEATED POSITION IN THE CORNER AS CAMILLE DELIVERS STOMP AFTER STOMP, AND NOW CAMILLE RUNS INTO THE OPPOSITE CORNER BEFORE CHARGING IN!
Persephone: But Darcy May Morgan moved out of the way. That didn’t amount to much since Camille managed to stop herself before anything bad could happen- but Darcy May Morgan sends Ms. Extreme over the top rope.
James Peters: Ms. Extreme manages to land on the apron, BUT DARCY CONNECTS WITH A HUGE FOREARM, CAUSING CAMILLE TO NEARLY LOSE HER BALANCE! DARCY NOW QUICKLY RUNNING THE ROPES AS CAMILLE LOOKS TO RECOVER, AND DARCY SENDS BOTH HERSELF AND CAMILLE OFF OF THE APRON WITH A HUGE SUICIDE SPEAR!
Rich Russillo: Darcy May Morgan is taking a few seconds to try and catch her breath, and I don’t blame her for needing to recover after everything she’s been through in this match! She still has that huge gash on her forehead after being sent into the corner of the steps, and she’s lost so much blood since then! That’s not even mentioning all the other damage Camille did to Darcy throughout the match, but somehow Darcy May Morgan is still going! Darcy finally sends Ms. Extreme back into the ring!
James Peters: AS SOON AS DARCY RE-ENTERS THE RING SHE GOES TOWARDS CAMILLE, AND SHE TRIES TO LIFT HER UP INTO A POWERBOMB POSITION BUT SHE DOESN’T HAVE THE STRENGTH TO! MS. EXTREME HAS BEEN WORKING ON DARCY’S ARM THE ENTIRE MATCH AND SLOWLY BUT SURELY THAT DAMAGE HAS TAKEN ITS TOLL ON DARCY! Darcy is punching away at Ms. Extreme, doing everything she can to try and stop Camille from getting back into this, BUT CAMILLE MANAGES TO LAND A PUNCH TO DARCY’S SIDE!
Rich Russillo: IT’S TOO LITTLE TOO LATE THOUGH, BECAUSE DARCY MANAGES TO CONNECT WITH A CANADIAN DESTROYER! She couldn’t go for the powerbomb so instead she just hit a huge flipping piledriver!
Persephone: Okay… NOW GO FOR THE COVER! HURRY UP AND PIN HER! END THE MATCH ALREADY!
Rich Russillo: I think Darcy has something bigger on her mind! She wants to make sure Camille is down for good!
Persephone: :wtf: It better be worth it then. These two have been trading big moves all match and for some reason I’m still here watching them compete. This match should’ve been over ages ago!
Rich Russillo: Well it looks like it might be over in just a few moments-
James Peters: MS. EXTREME SPRINTS UP TO THE TOP ROPE!
James Peters: DARCY MAY MORGAN MIGHT’VE BEEN SETTING UP FOR ANOTHER GRAND FINALE, BUT SOMEHOW MS. EXTREME MANAGED TO RUN UP TO THE TOP ROPE! The two competitors are going back and forth trying to get the upper hand on one another, AND THERE’S A HUGE FOREARM BY MS. EXTREME! Ms. Extreme now trying to get Darcy in a front facelock-
Rich Russillo: BUT DARCY SHOVES MS. EXTREME OFF OF THE TOP ROPE! DARCY MAY MORGAN NOW GETTING INTO POSITION ONCE AGAIN!!
James Peters: AND MS. EXTREME MANAGES TO GET BACK UP AND CHARGE AT DARCY BEFORE PUSHING HER LEGS OUT FROM UNDER HER! Ms. Extreme barely managing to save herself once again from what could’ve been the end of the match, and now Ms. Extreme begins to make her way back up to the top rope! I have no idea what Camille has planned, especially after everything these two already threw at each other! I feel like they’ve tried all of the big moves in their arsenal and none of them have been able to end the match!
Rich Russillo: MS. EXTREME HITS DARCY WITH ONE MORE FOREARM FOR GOOD MEASURE, AND I DON’T THINK DARCY HAS IT IN HER TO STOP THINGS THIS TIME AROUND! IT LOOKS LIKE CAMILLE IS ABOUT TO DO WHAT SHE FAILED TO EARLIER IN THE MATCH!
James Peters: TWIST OF FATE OFF THE TOP ROPE!!! IT CONNECTS THIS TIME!!!
Rich Russillo: Darcy May Morgan was just hit with a Twist of Fate off of the top rope, but Ms. Extreme isn’t going for the pinfall just yet either!
Persephone: These two need to just hurry up and die already. I don’t know what Camille is thinking here but this HAS to get the job done.
James Peters: Ms. Extreme is making her way up to the top rope, and I think she’s way past the point of letting the damage Darcy’s done to her leg get to her! Ms. Extreme has the Universal Women’s Championship in her sights!
Rich Russillo: A BLIND FURY!!! MS. EXTREME CONNECTS WITH A BLIND FURY FOR THE SECOND TIME IN THIS MATCH, AND IMMEDIATELY CAMILLE DROPS DOWN FOR THE COVER! THIS IS THE SAME MOVE THAT HELPED CAMILLE GAIN THIS OPPORTUNITY, AND IT LOOKS LIKE IT’S ABOUT TO HELP HER WIN HER FIRST EVER WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Bella Braxton: Here is your winner…. AAANNDDDD NNEEEEWWWWW UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPION……. MISSSSSSSS EEEEEEXXXXXTTTRRRREEEEEEMMMEEEEE!!!!!
(‘The Joker’ hits, and the SoFi Stadium explodes after hearing the bell ring. Ms. Extreme slowly rolls off of Darcy May Morgan, and as she finally begins to stir she watches as the referee grabs the Universal Women’s Championship and hands it to her. She’s exhausted, hurt and still a bit bloody, but a huge smile forms on her face as she takes the title before slowly getting back to her feet.)
James Peters: MS. EXTREME DID IT! SHE DID IT! MS. EXTREME IS THE NEW UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPION! This was years in the making! Ms. Extreme has spent years trying to finally capture her first ever World Championship, and tonight at the biggest show of the year she finally did it! Ms. Extreme wins!
Rich Russillo: Darcy May Morgan spent months saying that she’s the face of women’s wrestling and time and time again she’d actually go on to prove it, but tonight just wasn’t her night! Darcy May Morgan was a fantastic Universal Women’s Champion and I know for a fact that this won’t be the last time we see her with gold around her waist, but this is Ms. Extreme’s night. Camille said she needed this match more than anyone and that there was no bigger threat to Darcy’s title than her, and now look at her!
Persephone: I don’t know how you guys are so excited right now. I’ve been struggling to stay awake this entire match and it’s not like the winner really makes up for it. I’m just glad this is all over.
James Peters: The entire SoFi Stadium is on their feet cheering for the new Universal Women’s Champion, and I can’t say I blame them! Congratulations to Ms. Extreme on becoming the new Universal Women’s Champion!
(Ms. Extreme has her hand raised by the referee, and as ‘The Joker’ continues to play, she proudly holds up her newly won Universal Women’s Championship. The look on her face says it all. She spent years going through hell just to become World Champion, and now she finally got what she wanted. Ms. Extreme continues to celebrate her victory as the entire crowd cheers for her, and finally Pain for Pride fades away from ringside.)
(The camera fades to the next match graphic.)
(Pain for Pride fades back to ringside, and Stephie Love stands inside of the ring with a microphone in her hand.)
Stephie Love: The following main event is scheduled for one fall… and it is for…. THE EAW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP!!!!
(“M3tamorphosis” – Playboi Carti ft. Kid Cudi begins to play and the crowd erupts for Impact as he makes his way out! The 9-time World Champion, the Hall of Famer, with his sights set on capturing an unprecedented 10th World Title reign and they know that he’s completely capable of doing as much. With bright lights flashing around the arena, Impact stands on the stage for a moment before heading down the ramp.)
Stephie Love: Introducing first, the challenger… from Seattle, Washington… weighing 221 pounds…. EAW Hall of Famer… IMMMMMPAAAAAACCCCCTTTTT!!!
Stew-O: Impact is coming into Pain for Pride tonight as one of the most decorated competitors of all time, and tonight, he’s got the chance to make even more history! A 10th reign possibly on the horizon, and with all that he’s had to say about how he feels this new generation wants to undermine him when it’s convenient for them to do so, I’m sure it’d say a whole hell of a lot for him to win tonight!
Flannery McCoy: There’s no doubt about that! Impact is someone who’s cemented himself at the top no matter what setbacks he’s had to face, and I think that says even more about what he’s been able to do. There aren’t many people who have the ethics that he does to last in this industry as long as he has through a whole hell of a lot and still be regarded as someone who can carry a title and make it mean something just that much more, help to make a brand stand out among others – hell, be one of the people to help carry this company and help establish it as what it is! Impact’s the kind of talent that’s going to be regarded for decades beyond this, and I’m sure tonight is going to just be another reason why!
Jake Mercer: That 10th World Title reign is coming and I can feel it! I’ve been manifesting it ever since Battle of Egypt, and I haven’t looked back! Xander’s going to be in for the fight of his life, and when Impact’s standing tall with the World Heavyweight Championship, he’ll remember to think twice about speaking on Impact’s name the way he does!
(Impact comes to enter the ring, the lighting fixtures still flashing around the arena for his entrance as he looks out into the audience of fans in attendance! Finally, Impact goes to take his spot.)
( Impact patiently waits in his designated corner in the squared circle as the SoFi Stadium dims. All of a sudden, the SoFi stadium temperatures drop.)
Stephie Love: Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome the Grammy-award winning Deftones and Cane Hill vocalist Elijah Witt!
( A live rendition of “It Follows” played by Deftones and Cane Hill’s vocalist begins to echo throughout the stadium. The musicians are positioned on a platform adjacent to the Pain For Pride stage. Various stagehands and audience members start trembling in response to the cold temperatures as they start feeling strong cold breezes across the venue. Impact is confused as the atmospheric lights transition to a pale blue. An icy wind continues to blow throughout the SoFi Stadium while the camera focuses in on the stage. Light radiates on to the stage and reveals a sheet of ice blocking the entranceway. )
( “How did I survive the Apocalyptic fire? I chose not to feel the flames” is whispered by Elijah Witt into the microphone over the bells of “It Follows”.
( The guitar riff begins as the cameras continue to pan across the sheet of ice. The crowd reacts in anticipation for the arrival of the EAW World Heavyweight Champion as the Deftones guitarists perfectly draw up suspension for the beginning of the song )
( **BOOM** )
( The second the beat drops, the wall of ice bursts with blue flames shooting from the ceiling and pyro from the ground up. )
( Xander Payne rises from the ground, hands over his chest in a supine position before he finally gets up to his feet. He proudly stands amongst the ice debris and brandishes a smirk on his face. He unhooks the EAW World Heavyweight Championship from around the waist and hoists up in the air while he continues to be surrounded by blue fire. )
( :musical_note: “I tried to run and run but paranoia waits for me. My clock is counting down and time won’t give it back to me. :musical_note: )
( For the fourth Payne For Pride in history, he has decided to have a unique take on his attire. He has icy-blue contacts with pupils that resemble the shape of an X. He wears blue and green coloured camouflage combat trousers. He wears his signature sleeveless black shirt with “Payne 4 Pride” plastered all over the front, and “Addicted2Wrestling” in blue and white on the back. He has his usual taped up fists, but with a new addition to his arm: an armband that reads #RIPBRODYSPARKS. )
( :musical_note: “I drag you like a ball and chain. It’s calling my name.” :musical_note: )
Flannery McCoy: Xander Payne makes his first walk down the Pain For Pride aisle as the EAW World Heavyweight Champion with style! He pays tribute to the late Brody Sparks, who he has noted as a huge inspiration in his two-decade long career. In addition, he is serenaded to the ring by Deftones and Cane Hill. It couldn’t get any better than that! Xander Payne is known for having grand entrances, and this might be his best yet!
Jake Mercer: Fly high, Brody Sparks. Xander Payne is walking into this match with a huge chip on his shoulder, with something huge to prove and that is whether he is world championship material or not. He has already flown past the Charlie Marr roadblock, and he is now about to revisit a roadblock he once faced a year ago at Odyssey, via Impact. This is going to be a match that will certainly be appreciated by the obese wrestling coomnuty and will go down in history.
Stew-O: Xander Payne has a huge reputation to uphold coming into his second championship defence. It is Payne 4 Pride nonetheless, so we are going to see Xander Payne fully in his element tonight!
( Xander Payne cracks his neck, steps out of the fire, and screams as the crowd responds with a huge pop. He pounds his chest in excitement as Impact looks onto him with disgust. Every single person in the SoFi Stadium sings to his theme song. Xander Payne stops himself three-quarters through the ramp as he throws his championship high up into the sky. This prompts for even more blue fireworks to shoot out from the sky. )
( :musical_note: “I’m a magnet. I attract it. Everywhere I go you know trouble follows.” :musical_note: )
Xander Payne: (off-mic) IT IS MOTHERFUCKING TIME FOR PAYNE FOR PRIDE 4, BITCHES!
( :musical_note: “IM JUST A MAGNET FOR PAYNE!!!!” :musical_note: )
( Xander Payne continues to stride down the ramp, with the ramp itself chilling over with every step as he holds up the EAW World Heavyweight Championship. He makes his way to the steel steps, putting one foot onto them and letting one final warcry as he spreads his arms. He walks up the steps, steps through the ropes, moves right past Impact and jumps onto the top turnbuckle. He raises his championship high over his head on top before going to the other turnbuckles to do the same exact action. )
( “It Follows” dies down as Xander Payne sits on the top turnbuckle. However, the crowd continues to sing his theme song despite the silence. )
Crowd: I’m a magnet, I attract it
Everywhere I go you know trouble follows
I’m just a magnet for pain
I’m a magnet, I attract it
Everywhere I go you know trouble follows
I’m just a magnet for pain
Magnet for pain!!!
( After they are done singing his theme song, the crowd bursts in applauds as Xander Payne continues to hype himself in the center of the ring. He yells at Stephie Love to make the announcement as he gets into position. )
Stephie Love: AND HIS OPPONENT!! From Toronto, Ontario, Canada, weighing in at 256 pounds… HE IS TO BE RECOGNIZED AS THE EAW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION!! THE PAYNEKILLER.. XANNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNDERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR PAYNEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!
(The referee retrieve the championship from Xander and passes it off to ringside, calling for the bell immediately after!)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Jake Mercer: The rats here in Cali are fucking huge; look at the size of that thing standing across from Impact!
Flannery McCoy: He’s gonna kick your ass one day, and no one’s gonna stop him.
Stew-O: We’ve got a stare down here for a moment, Xander glaring at Impact and Impact’s wearing a smirk, cool and collected after the referee’s calling of the bell!
Jake Mercer: AND NOW THEY TAKE OFF RIGHT AFTER EACH OTHER! THEY’RE SWINGING AT EACH OTHER JUST LIKE THEY DID LAST DYNASTY, BUT NOW THERE’S NOTHING STANDING IN THEIR WAY! NO ONE TO HOLD THEM BACK!
Stew-O: IMPACT’S THROWING HARD RIGHTS, CATCHING XANDER IN THE FACE WITH CONSECUTIVE PUNCHES! BUT XANDER ISN’T FALLING BACK AS HE JABS IMPACT REPEATEDLY, SLAMMING HIS FIST RIGHT AT HIM!
Flannery McCoy: THE REFEREE IS TRYING TO CALL FOR THESE TWO TO WATCH THE CLOSED-FISTS, BUT HE MIGHT AS WELL BE HAVING THAT CONVERSATION WITH HIMSELF; IMPACT AND XANDER AREN’T EVEN LISTENING! HE BACKS OFF AND JUST LETS THEM HAVE AT IT, AS THESE RAPID-FIRE PUNCHES AREN’T BEING HELD BACK!
Stew-O: XANDER LOOKS INCENSED AS HE FIRES OFF ON IMPACT, NO DOUBT FUELED BY ALL THE WORDS AND ACTIONS THAT HAVE BEEN DIRECTED HIS WAY! NOT ONLY HAS ALL HIS WORK BEEN UNDER FIRE, BUT HE’S HAD HIS ENTIRE REIGN QUESTIONED AND HE’S OUT TO SHOW WHY HE’S MADE IT TO THE TOP!
Jake Mercer: Speaking of shit being under fire, I don’t think we’ve talked enough about Xander’s shoes with the human blood in them. What the hell was up with that and who’d it come from? :skip:
Flannery McCoy: Don’t ask questions I’m not sure if we’d want to know the answers to :lupe:
Stew-O: BUT IMPACT’S GOT AN ANSWER FOR EVERY HIT THROWN HIS WAY SO FAR! BOTH MEN HAVE YET TO RELENT, AND NOW XANDER REELS BACK AFTER STUNNING IMPACT AND THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION’S FIST COMES TEARING THROUGH THE AIR TO KNOCK IMPACT DOWN!
Jake Mercer: ONLY FOR IMPACT TO DUCK AND END UP BEHIND XANDER! IMPACT QUICKLY STOMPS ON THE BACK OF THE LEG AND THAT FORCES XANDER DOWN TO A KNEE, BEFORE LAUNCHING HIMSELF FORWARD IN A BLOCKBUSTER VARIANT! XANDER GETS TAKEN FOR A RIDE AS HE’S DRIVEN FACE FIRST TO THE MAT AT THE HANDS OF A WRESTLING GOD!
Flannery McCoy: AND IMPACT FOLLOWS UP WITH A DROPICK TO KNOCK A KNEELING XANDER BACK DOWN, BEING SURE TO KEEP THE CHAMPION OFF HIS FEET! Xander goes rolling to the ropes and Impact hurries in pursuit, meeting him there as he’s trying to get up with the help of the ropes, but Impact is laying into him with knee strike after knee strike to the ribs! Xander is doubled over as Impact comes clubbing him over the back-
Stew-O: XANDER GETS UNDER IMPACT AND LAUNCHES HIM OVER THE TOP ROPE! IMPACT LANDS ON HIS FEET AND GOES TO SWING AS XANDER WHIRLS AROUND, JUST FOR PAYNE TO BLOCK IT AND STRIKE WITH A FOREARM TO THE FACE! XANDER GOES DOWN LOOKING TO SHOULDER THRUST IMPACT OFF THE APRON, BUT IMPACT SIDESTEPS HIM AND XANDER’S ON THE RECEIVING END OF A HUGE KICK THAT KNOCKS HIM BACK INTO THE RING!
Jake Mercer: Impact gets back into the ring, looking as unfazed by that moment of retaliation like I knew he would and comes stomping down on Xander’s back to keep him on the mat! But Xander doesn’t know when to quit as he tries to push himself up, but Impact reminds this whale he’s beneath him as he kicks an arm out from under Xander just to fuck with him before rattling his head with a nasty kick!
Flannery McCoy: Impact can finally say he’s assumed control of this match in the early going after the back and forth start this had gotten off to so quickly, as he keeps a foot planted between Xander’s shoulder blades while pulling back on both arms to bring Xander’s torso up off the mat, THEN STOMPING DOWN ON THE BACK OF HIS HEAD!
Stew-O: Xander goes grabbing at his face, no doubt in pain and wanting to console what could be a broken nose after that unprotected collision, but Impact isn’t having it! He makes it clear that Xander’s on his time and that he’ll get no room to recover as he grabs Xander’s wrist to rip one of his arms away and pulls on it to turn Xander over, bringing him to his knees where Impact pulls him forward into the bottom of his boot that he’s got pressed against Xander’s face!
Jake Mercer: King shit :drakelike:!!
Flannery McCoy: Impact’s made it a goal to get underneath Xander’s skin and get in his head – treating him like he’s nothing even now, on tonight of all nights, could either break Xander down or awaken something in him that Impact might not be ready for!
Jake Mercer: Excuse you?! Watch your fucking mouth! This is a live show and you’re kicking that kind of doubt onto Impact’s name?!
Flannery McCoy: :mjpls: I’m just being a fair commentator, you should try it some time.
Jake Mercer: VERY funny, Flan :mjlol:!!! Impact finally releases the arm and shoves Xander down with his boot, apparently frustrating Jabba the Hutt much to Impact’s amusement!
Stew-O: Xander gets another boot shoved against his face, Impact taunting him as he asks what Xander’s gonna do about it and Flannery’s right, this could backfire!
Jake Mercer: We’ve got Impact haters in the building, I fear! 🤢 Xander’s face is getting all red though – whether that’s from early exhaustion or anger, I’ve got no idea, but I’ll assume he’s not okay with Impact’s actions. Xander pushes up back onto his knees, yelling back- BUT IMPACT SLAPS THE FUCK OUT OF XANDER’S HEAD!!
Flannery McCoy: Impact slaps him over the head again and again and again, almost daring him to do something! He’s been toying with Xander – first burning the shoes, questioning his accomplishments, now this. He better be careful!
Jake Mercer: Just shut up and watch the man go to work! Impact has him right here he wants him, trust me! He- oh :lupe:
Stew-O: Just as you say that, Impact takes a punch to the gut! Impact is stunned for a moment and Xander connects with another, starting to fight his way back to his feet! Xander comes off his knees still swinging- XANDER PULLS THE LEGS OUT FROM UNDER IMPACT AND IMPACT HITS THE MAT! AND NOW A JUMPING SENTON FROM THE CHAMP, WHO COMES CRASHING DOWN ON THE CHALLENGER!!
Jake Mercer: :noah:!!! XANDER COMES OFF OF IMPACT AND GRABS THE FUTURE 10-TIME WORLD CHAMPION AS HE BRINGS THEM OFF THE MAT, THROWING HIM FOR A SNAP SUPLEX! IMPACT GETS SLAMMED ON THE CANVAS AND XANDER KEEPS HIS HOLD ON HIM, ROLLING OVER AND BRINGING IMPACT UP INTO ANOTHER SUPLEX WITH PLENTY OF FORCE TO RATTLE THE RING!!
Flannery McCoy: I FUCKING TOLD YOU, JAKE! XANDER KEEPS HIM HELD FOR ANOTHER SUPLEX, GETTING UP TO HIS FEET WITH IMPACT AND NOW RELEASING HIM MID-THROW, ABSOLUTELY LAUNCHING IMPACT ACROSS THE RING!
Stew-O: Impact ends up in the corner using the turnbuckles to try to bring himself up, BUT XANDER BARRELS INTO THE CORNER AND LEAPS INTO HIM FOR A CLOTHESLINE SPLASH IN THE TURNBUCKLES! XANDER THROWS ALL HIS WEIGHT INTO THAT AND IMPACT NEARLY LOSES HIS HEAD! AND NOW XANDER TOSSES HIM OUT TO THE MIDDLE OF THE RING IN A BELLY-TO-BELLY OVERHEAD THROW!!!
Flannery McCoy: IMPACT’S STUCK TAKING THIS ONSLAUGHT, LOOKING COMPLETELY CAUGHT OFF GUARD AFTER THAT AND XANDER GETS HIM FROM BEHIND JUST AS HE WAS TRYING TO GET UP! GERMAN SUPLEX FROM XANDER TO IMPACT, DROPPING IMPACT ON THE BACK OF HIS HEAD! AND NOW XANDER WITH THE COVER!!
Jake Mercer: Impact with the shoulder up :blessed:!!! But Xander won’t give greatness time to catch his breath, showing just how desperate he is knowing the countdown on his reign is just ticking away!
Stew-O: That desperation isn’t necessarily a bad thing – there’s a wide range of what people refer to Impact as, and among them is being called one of the best ever. It’s crucial for Xander to not let up!
Flannery McCoy: Xander was dropping punches over the head before starting to get Impact up, now kicking him in the gut and following with a forearm to the face! The World Heavyweight Champion sending shots that rock Impact back until he’s got him back to the ropes, from where he goes whipping Impact across the ring- NO! Impact counters and breaks out just as he starts getting pulled, striking with a back kick!
Stew-O: Impact launches a huge knife-edged chop across the chest to get Xander back, but Impact isn’t about to let this window go as he stays after him, lighting him up with another! Xander finds himself unexpectedly backed against the ropes and IMPACT BACKHANDS THE SHIT OUT OF XANDER!
Jake Mercer: AS HE SHOULD! XANDER TRIES THROWING A WILD RIGHT BUT IMPACT’S TOO SMART FOR THAT, SEEING IT COMING AND GETTING IN A KNEE LIFT TO STRIKE HIM IN THE GUT! IMPACT KEEPS HIM HELD THERE AND XANDER’S FORCED TO TAKE THREE MORE HITS, BEFORE HE TRIES TURNING AWAY!
Flannery McCoy: BUT THERE GOES IMPACT TAKING ADVANTAGE OF THE OPPORTUNITY AND GETTING XANDER OFF HIS FEET IN A BACK SUPLEX! HE SENDS THE CURRENT CHAMPION TO THE MAT AND IMPACT’S ALREADY MAKING THE FIRST MOVE, SHOWING HE KNOWS EXACTLY WHAT THIS MOMENT WILL TAKE AS HE COMES DOWN ON XANDER’S BACK WITH A JUMPING SENTON JUST AS XANDER WAS TURNING OVER!
Stew-O: Impact turns this one around on a dime just as Xander appeared to be in control and a veteran move sees him rolling down across Xander’s back to make sure he stays down as he goes to the legs, TAKING XANDER UP AND OVER IN A WHEELBARROW SUPLEX!!!
Jake Mercer: UGH, HIS STRENGTH!! 🤤 It’s physical feats of power like that that allowed Impact to win his first championship outside a now-defunct CVS in the Parkinglot Brawl Federation!
Flannery McCoy: Huh?? :comeagain:
Jake Mercer: It’s true! It caused a huge spike in popularity for him; there wasn’t an e-fed out there where anyone could join as Impact because he was always taken!
Flannery McCoy: An e-what now? :comeagain:
Stew-O: Xander ends up clutching at the back of his head after getting thrown to the mat on it, falling on that, his neck, and his back! Xander tries to crawl away to the ropes to create some distance but Impact kicks him forward, sending him just over the bottom rope! Impact reaches out over the middle rope and gets Xander’s pulled back over the middle rope, before pulling backward on the chin with his knee driven down into Xander’s lower back!
Flannery McCoy: Xander’s trying to pry those hands off of him but it doesn’t help that Impact’s got Xander trapped and bent like that in the ropes as he punches down on the face while the referee starts warning him of the five-count! Impact ignores all the warnings and lets the count start up as he’s got Xander contorted in the ropes, wanting to get as much out of this as he can!
Jake Mercer: Impact lets go just dangerously close to five AND BOUNCES OFF THE BOTTOM ROPE INTO A DOUBLE FOOT STOMP ONTO THE BACK WHILE HOLDING THE TOP ROPE! HE MAKES SURE TO GO DIGGING HIS HEELS INTO THE LUMBAR REGION, PULLING ON THE TOP ROPE FOR LEVERAGE!! THE REFEREE’S TRYING TO CALL HIM OFF WITH MORE THREATS OF RUNNING A DISQUALIFICATION COUNT!
Stew-O: AND NOW IMPACT SLINGSHOTS HIS WAY OFF OF THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION AND OUT THE RING, COMING DOWN WITH A GUILLOTINE-STYLED LEG DROP ACROSS THE BACK OF THE NECK OUT ON THE APRON! XANDER’S HEAD GETS CRUSHED UNDER THE BLOW, BEING MADE TO ABSORB THE BRUNT OF THAT AGAINST THE APRON!!
Flannery McCoy: Impact comes off of him out on the floor but he’s still keeping Xander hung over the bottom rope, landing forearm after forearm over the top of the head that he just threw his full weight down on! Xander probably doesn’t even know where he’s at right now, ESPECIALLY NOT AFTER THE BICYCLE KICK TO THE SIDE OF THE HEAD THAT IMPACT JUST DELIVERED!!!
Stew-O: THE FORCE AND VELOCITY BEHIND THAT KICK KNOCKED XANDER RIGHT BACK INTO THE RING!! AND NOW IMPACT ROLLS BACK IN BEFORE HE CAN START GETTING COUNTED OUT, AND HE TURNS XANDER ONTO HIS BACK FOR A PIN!! THE SHOULDERS ARE DOWN!!!
Flannery McCoy: Xander isn’t done as he gets his shoulder up! His head’s got to be pounding from all those consecutive shots!
Stew-O: Impact wasn’t going to let that opening he got go to waste and he’s surely going to keep at it! He isn’t fazed at all by Xander kicking out, focused on getting Xander to his feet and taking him over into the corner where he smashes Xander’s face off repeatedly off the top turnbuckle before transitioning into a multitude of kicks and stomps!
Jake Mercer: The leader of the Impact Zone is all over the sentient blimp, pummeling Xander with those ruthless shots! Now he whips Xander across the ring into the opposite corner where Impact is instantly following just behind him, HITTING WITH PRECISION AS HE LANDS A STEP-UP KNEE STRIKE ON THE JAW IMMEDIATELY AFTER XANDER HITS THE TURNBUCKLES!
Flannery McCoy: IMPACT CONNECTS WITH A VICIOUS UPPERCUT WHILE HE’S GOT XANDER STUCK IN THE CORNER, KEEPING HIM DEBILITATED LONG ENOUGH FOR HIM TO TAKE XANDER UP INTO A SLINGSHOT SUPLEX! XANDER HURTLES TO THE MAT AT THE HANDS OF IMPACT, WHO FLOATS OVER WITH XANDER STILL IN HIS POSSESSION, TAKING HIM UP AND DOWN WITH A FALCON ARROW!!
Stew-O: IMPACT REACHES FORWARD AND GRABS ONE OF THE LEGS, HOLDING HIM FOR ANOTHER PIN!!
Jake Mercer: It’s still early so I’m not concerned; if Impact’s not worried, then I’m not worried!
Stew-O: Impact isn’t showing any signs of slowing down as he gets right to work from that seated position, connecting with hits to the face while Xander is clearly trying to cover up! Xander is flailing trying to push those punches away but Impact is on the move, rising up just to come down with knee drops to the head!
Jake Mercer: He can’t retain if he’s concussed out of his fucking mind :drakelike:
Flannery McCoy: That just might be where things are headed as Impact clearly wants to leave a lasting imprint for Xander to go away from this should we see a new champion tonight! Impact now with a stomp to the stomach of Xander and he reaches down to grab the legs, positioning himself over Xander and now deadlifting him up into another wheelbarrow-
Stew-O: XANDER COUNTERS INTO A VICTORY ROLL!!! XANDER TAKES HIM DOWN INTO AN UNEXPECTED PIN!!!
Jake Mercer: NOT EVEN CLOSE! Impact’s shoulder is up just after two and he rolls out, turning over to get in a swift kick while on the mat as he’s ahead of Xander! Impact hurries to get to his feet just as Xander is moving to get up off a knee, Impact going for a clothesline BUT XANDER DUCKS HIS HEAD BACK DOWN! XANDER ENDS UP BEHIND IMPACT, WHO VEERS BACK AROUND REALIZING HE’S MISSED, BUT XANDER IS ON THE MARK WITH A SUPERKICK!!!
Flannery McCoy: XANDER SHOWS SIGNS OF FIGHT AS HE RUSHES TO FOLLOW UP WITH OFFENSE! THE REIGNING CHAMPION CONNECTING WITH A HUGE FOREARM SMASH ON THE STUNNED IMPACT BEFORE KEEPING HIM CLOSE AS HE BATTERS THE ABSOLUTE HELL OUT IMPACT- NO! IMPACT FINALLY SEEMS TO CATCH A BREAK AS HE MANAGES TO PUSH XANDER AWAY!
Stew-O: AND XANDER DUCKS A SPINNING BACKFIST! “OVERDOSE”!!! XANDER COMES BACK AROUND THE OPPOSITE WAY TO HIT A DISCUS PALM STRIKE! IMPACT STUMBLES BACK AND AWAY COVERING HIS NOSE BUT XANDER STAYS ON HIS TRACKS, STRIKING HIM OVER THE BACK WHILE IMPACT WAS LOOKING FOR SPACE TO RECOVER!
Jake Mercer: Xander clubs him again with such force that Impact drops to a knee while he’d been moving along the ropes and Xander sees fit to kick Impact right out the ring! Impact flops out through the middle and bottom ropes, hitting the floor on the outside with a thud but he’s still making the effort to try to get up. Impact grabbing for the apron while Xander comes down out the ring beside him, dragging him up and slamming Impact’s head off the hardest part of the ring!
Flannery McCoy: Impact’s face comes bouncing off the apron before Xander takes hold of him a second time, doing it again! And Xander starts slamming his forearm over the back of the head while he’s got Impact’s face pinned down against the apron, no doubt exacerbating the issue Impact seemed to be having with his nose moments ago! Meanwhile, the referee’s started up a ten-count after they failed to answer his calls to get into the ring!
Stew-O: Xander finally relents and Impact is able to raise up properly, but that’s a bloody nose Impact is sporting now! Impact wipes away at it with the back of his hand as he stumbles away but Xander’s spotted the red coming from Impact, and after what Impact did to draw blood from Xander on Dynasty a few weeks ago, there’s gotta be more of this from Xander where that came from!
Flannery McCoy: I’m not doubting that at all! Xander trails Impact closely, not letting him get far as he bashes his face into the steel ring post not once, not twice, but three times! Impact gets rolled into the ring and Xander follows in after him into the corner, effectively stopping the referee’s count, but Impact seemingly could’ve done with the reprieve as he’s struggled to get a good base these past few moments!
Jake Mercer: Well, maybe if Xander just gave him a moment to get himself together he’d be in better shape. 🤷♂️ But Xander clearly knows that Impact can’t be given a moment for anything after the way he was getting dominated before this turnaround.
Stew-O: Xander goes to try and pull the challenger out of the corner for an irish whip across the ring, but Impact’s got his arm hooked around the top rope to prevent himself from going anywhere! Xander pulls again but Impact kicks at the World Heavyweight Champion’s hand to break free! But Payne stays in pursuit and runs at Impact only to get a back elbow from the other arm!
Flannery McCoy: Impact looks to throw a kick but Xander has it timed perfectly, catching his foot! Impact hobbles on one leg until Xander shoves him back into the corner, Impact falling over and Xander comes charging in trying for the “HEAT SEEKER”!!!
Stew-O: IMPACT ROLLS OUT THE WAY AND XANDER HITS THE MIDDLE TURNBUCKLE! AND IMPACT GETS HIM WITH A SCHOOLBOY PIN FROM OUT THE CORNER!!!
Jake Mercer: XANDER MANAGES TO ROLL OVER OUT OF IT! IMPACT’S QUICK THINKING LEAVES PAYNE IN A HURRY TO GET UP, BUT THERE’S A STEP-UP ENZUIGIRI BEFORE XANDER CAN EVEN MAKE ANOTHER MOVE!
Flannery McCoy: Impact’s just bought himself a moment but he’s not resting! He grabs the champion bringing him up to his feet for an UGLY headbutt before applying an arm wringer, twisting on the arm as he delivers kicks to the chest and stomach, knocking Xander back to the ropes!
Stew-O: Xander’s caught up with no real way out until the five count is up, as Impact wisely keeps himself out of reach! But just as the referee starts making his way over, Impact goes whipping Xander across the ring- NO! IMPACT STOPS MID-TURN AND PULLS XANDER UP AND AROUND INTO A TILT-A-WHIRL BACKBREAKER!!
Jake Mercer: Xander comes down onto Impact’s knee before he’s unceremoniously shoved to the mat, grabbing at his back and Impact takes the moment to go wearing Xander down even further, this time with an inverted cloverleaf!
Flannery McCoy: The World Heavyweight Champion reaches out for the ropes that he’s simply too far away from! I know that Xander didn’t come all this way just to lose like this, but Impact ends up one step ahead of him and this is not the position that Xander wants to be in right now with his title on the line!
Stew-O: The referee comes down near Xander asking if he’d submit, but he gets a roaring “no!” from the champion! Xander’s determined to find a way out of this! He tries trudging forward on his forearms despite Impact keeping close and leaning his legs over his back, putting Xander at that awkward angle!
Flannery McCoy: But credit to Xander for trying to work his way to the ropes! Impact’s got his legs all wrapped up and I can’t even begin to imagine the kind of pain he must be in right now, but from the look on his face, I’d say he knows the longer he’s stuck like this the more that World Heavyweight Title could be slipping away!
Jake Mercer: Impact leans further ahead and that forces Xander down to the mat, knowing that he’s got him right where he wants him! Impact’s calling out for Xander to give up and stop fighting, sending repeated kicks to the gut just beneath him, making this just that much more frustrating for Xander! But Xander pushes himself back up in his effort to get to the ropes once again!
Stew-O: And he just might end up making it! Xander’s trudging along, working his way there, AND HE’S NOT LONG AWAY AT THIS POINT- BUT IMPACT DRAGS HIM BACK TO THE MIDDLE OF THE RING! IMPACT’S WEARING A SMUG SMIRK AS XANDER SHOUTS OUT – IN PAIN OR ANGER, POSSIBLY BOTH! HE KNOWS HE COULD BE WELL ON HIS WAY TO CLOSING IN ON THAT TENTH REIGN!!
Flannery McCoy: If he can hold Xander down any longer, I’d say he’s got every right to think that! The referee is once again in Xander’s face asking for an answer, but Xander’s shaking his head and trying to push the ring official away! Xander isn’t giving up and he plans on fighting through all this, crawling once again on his arms to find some way out of this!
Jake Mercer: As accomplished and talented as he is, there’d definitely be no shame in losing to Impact here at Pain for Pride! Xander’s without a doubt had to fight his own battles to get here, but Impact’s 10th reign has never been a matter of “if” but “when” and it’s looking like it’ll come at Xander’s expense!
Stew-O: Xander changes course, though, moving to the corner and Impact’s allowing it this time but not without keeping that hold applied! Xander makes it to the turnbuckles and starts using them to climb his way up, the referee hurrying over just as Xander seemingly manages to take a lot of that pressure off!
Flannery McCoy: BUT IMPACT IMMEDIATELY STARTS UP WITH SHOULDER THRUSTS TO THE LOWER BACK! IMPACT IS FUCKING RUTHLESS AS HE SMASHES INTO XANDER’S BACK, READY TO ABUSE THE FIVE COUNT AS THE REFEREE TRIES TO CALL HIM OUT THE CORNER! IMPACT BACKS OFF FOR A MOMENT BUT STARTS THROWING PUNCHES THERE AS WELL, OUT TO BRUTALIZE XANDER IN ANY POSSIBLE!
Jake Mercer: THE REFEREE BACKS HIM OUT THE CORNER WITH A WARNING BUT I SAY LET HIM GO!!! 😤 Xander’s keeping himself up with the help of the ropes and he’s grabbing at his back, clearly in pain and Impact’s set to go after him again! Impact charging in but he gets a kick to the gut from a groggy Xander! With Impact doubled over, Xander climbs up onto the middle turnbuckle with the help of the ropes; I don’t like this!
Stew-O: Neither did Impact from the looks of things, as he spotted Xander going up and lunged forward with a forearm to the stomach! Xander nearly topples from his perched position over Impact but somehow manages to stay up; that’s not a place he wants to go taking the wrong fall from!
Flannery McCoy: He might not have a choice as Impact grabs hold of one of his legs and tries to tear him down, but Xander drops into a seated position on the top turnbuckle and holds onto the top rope! Impact starts climbing up after him, throwing punches while Xander tries to kick him down from coming up! The Heavyweight Champion throws another kick but Impact catches the leg under his arm and he continues on his way up, despite Xander trying to punch him down now!
Stew-O: Impact gets to the middle turnbuckle with Xander having taken some significant blows to the head just now! And Impact goes all the way up top to stand on the top turnbuckle- BUT XANDER SHOVES HIM OVER! IMPACT GOES FALLING FROM THE TOP TURNBUCKLE!
Jake Mercer: NO! IMPACT CATCHES THE TOP ROPE ON THE WAY DOWN AND HE KEEPS HIMSELF FROM SPLATTERING ON THE FLOOR AT RINGSIDE! IMPACT WORKS TO BRING HIMSELF TO STAND JUST AS XANDER CLOBBERS HIM OVER THE TOP OF HIS HEAD FROM HIS OWN POSITION, STILL ON THE TURNBUCKLES!
Stew-O: BUT IMPACT SHOOTS UNDER THE TOP ROPE TO CHOP THE BACK OF XANDER’S LEG JUST AS PAYNE WENT TO STAND! XANDER FALLS SEATED BACK ONTO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE AND IMPACT SLINGSHOTS UP ONTO THE TOP ROPE!
Flannery McCoy: “TURNING TIDES”!!! IMPACT SPRINGBOARDS ONTO XANDER AND LAUNCHES XANDER TO THE MAT WITH A FRANKENSTEINER OUT THE CORNER!!! XANDER COMES CRASHING DOWN TO THE CANVAS!
Jake Mercer: XANDER TURNS OVER GRABBING AT HIS BACK AND IMPACT TAKES OFF INTO THE ROPES, SHOOTING OFF OF THEM AND RIGHT TO XANDER WITH A METEORA TAKEDOWN!!! XANDER GETS TO KNEES TO THE FACE THAT PLANT HIM ON THE MAT!! XANDER’S DOWN AND IMPACT HURRIES TO HIS FEET, ONCE AGAIN GOING TO THE ROPES!!
Stew-O: “FLIGHT SIGHTS”!!! IMPACT FLIPS OFF THE MIDDLE ROPE AND COMES CRASHING DOWN ONTO THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION!!! HE GETS ALL OF IT AND HE STAYS ON TOP FOR THE PIN!!!
Flannery McCoy: XANDER PAYNE GETS HIS SHOULDER UP IN TIME!!!
Stew-O: Impact shakes his head laughing, once again having to wipe away the blood that’s coming from his nose! But it’s no laughing matter how Xander was put through all that and he’s still willing to go! For Xander, this moment means everything after what he did to get here and he’s come prepared to fight with everything he has to take it for himself!
Jake Mercer: There’s undeniably a whole lot to gain in this for both men, but Impact’s been here before, he knows what it’s like to have this kind pressure on himself, and he expects it – everyone expects that attitude from him and what he’s bound to accomplish, just like he said this week!
Flannery McCoy: If that ends up being the case, it’ll certainly be known that Xander absolutely made him work for it here tonight, but we can’t count out Xander Payne yet as he isn’t done fighting! Impact though, he’s gotten to his feet and now he’s coming down with a series of stomps all over Xander, but managing to keep himself in check where others might’ve just gone wild and let their frustrations out for their opponent not staying down!
Stew-O: Impact knows he’s got more in the tank and Xander’s yet to exhaust that; like Jake said, Impact’s been in this situation before and he knows what it’ll take. This is where Xander wanted to be though, and he’s finding out what that’s like at this kind of level with someone like Impact!
Jake Mercer: Impact pulls Xander up to his feet and Xander’s looking out of it after all he took moments ago, and now Impact whips him across the ring- JUST TO FAKE INTO A SHORT-ARM CLOTHESLINE! XANDER GOES DOWN BUT IMPACT STILL HAS A HOLD OF THE ARM, AND HE FORCES XANDER UP INTO ANOTHER ONE JUST TO TAKE HIM BACK TO THE MAT!
Flannery McCoy: XANDER’S GETTING RAGDOLLED AS IMPACT TAKES HIM UP INTO ANOTHER! THAT MAKES THREE AND IMPACT’S GOING FOR A FOURTH- XANDER ANTICIPATES IT AND DUCKS, ENDING UP BEHIND IMPACT! THE NINE-TIME WORLD CHAMPION FINDS HIMSELF GETTING SHOVED FORWARD INTO THE ROPES! XANDER POPPING HIM UP INTO THE AIR-
Stew-O: AND IMPACT FLOATS RIGHT OVER HIM! IMPACT LANDS ON HIS FEET ON THE OTHER SIDE OF XANDER AND XANDER TURNS INTO A SAVATE KICK- THE HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMP CATCHES THE LEG! XANDER SWINGS IMPACT’S LEG OUT, SENDING HIM SPINNING AND HE TURNS BACK AROUND INTO A KICK TO THE GUT!
Jake Mercer: XANDER GOES LOOKING FOR “RIPTIDE” BUT IMPACT HOOKS HIS LEG AROUND XANDER’S TO BLOCK IT! XANDER TRIES TO HAUL HIM UP ONLY TO FAIL AGAIN! IMPACT SHOOTS HIS KNEE UP INTO XANDER’S GUT AND LOOKS TO LIFT XANDER UP!
Flannery McCoy: SMALL PACKAGE PIN BY XANDER!!! XANDER HAS HIM PINNED TO THE MAT!!!
Stew-O: A KICK OUT BY IMPACT!!! IMPACT GETS TO HIS FEET FIRST AND GOES FOR XANDER AS HE’S GETTING UP, BUT XANDER PUSHES HIM BACK AND IMPACT UNKNOWINGLY STUMBLES BACK INTO THE REFEREE AGAINST THE ROPES!
Flannery McCoy: BUT XANDER IS COMING RIGHT AFTER HIM, XANDER SHOOTING UP AND LUNGING FOR IMPACT FOR A LARIAT!!!
Jake Mercer: BUT HE JUST FUCKING TOOK OUT THE REFEREE!!!
Flannery McCoy: XANDER JUST LUNGED FORWARD AND TOOK DOWN THE REFEREE, HITTING SO HARD THAT HE SENT HIM OUT THE RING! XANDER LOOKS SURPRISED AS ANYONE!
Stew-O: IMPACT COMES CHARGING AT XANDER BUT PAYNE SPOTS HIM COMING, POPPING THE HALL OF FAMER UP OVER THE TOP ROPE JUST IN TIME! IMPACT LANDING ON HIS FEET BUT XANDER’S READY THIS TIME AS HE KICKS IMPACT IN THE STOMACH! A STUNNER OVER THE TOP ROPE!! IMPACT’S HEAD AND NECK GET TAKEN INTO THE TOP ROPE AND HE GOES FLYING OFF THE APRON BESIDE THE REFEREE ON THE FLOOR!!!
Jake Mercer: There’s that look on Xander’s face as he realizes this could be his moment to try to make something happen before that bitter end! Xander going out to the apron as Impact is slow to get up! XANDER LEAPS OFF THE APRON AND THERE’S A MISSILE DROPKICK FROM THE CHAMPION TO SEND IMPACT VEERING FORWARD JUST WHEN HE WAS ABOUT TO TURN AROUND!!
Flannery McCoy: Impact falls back to the ground and goes to the barricade to bring himself up, but Xander is right there behind him like a horror movie villain! XANDER GRABBING IMPACT AND HOOKING HIM UP FOR A RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP OUT THERE ON THE FLOOR, AND YOU COULD HEAR THE THUD OF IMPACT’S HEAD HITTING THE GROUND ON THE AUDIO JUST NOW!!!
Stew-O: Impact is down trying to cradle the back of his head now and Xander’s up to a knee, seeing that the referee is still down! Xander shakes his head and focuses back on Impact, dragging him up and LAUNCHING HIM ACROSS THE RINGSIDE AREA FOR A BIEL THROW INTO THE CORNER OF THE BARRICADE!!
Jake Mercer: Get up, Impact :mjcry:
Flannery McCoy: HE’S NOT GONNA GET THE CHANCE AS XANDER COMES SPEEDING IN HIS DIRECTION! XANDER THROWS HIMSELF INTO IMPACT WITH A CANNONBALL AND IMPACT SLUMPS OVER LOOKING ABSOLUTELY OUT OF IT!
Jake Mercer: That’s like a 300-pound weight advantage; I don’t think this is really fair 😒
Stew-O: Xander is slow to get to his own feet but he’s bringing Impact with him and he looks set to bring Impact back into the ring- but Impact shoves him away! Xander gets spun around and Impact tries to throw a forearm but Payne’s ready for him, blocking it and firing off with one of his own! Impact stumbles back and Xander strikes with another to send him backward again, this time sending a punch right to the mouth and I swear I just saw a tooth!
Flannery McCoy: Impact’s running into some trouble now as Xander’s showing why he’s still in this! Impact ends up back into the turning point of the barricade and now Xander SENDS HIM OVER IT WITH A CLOTHESLINE!! IMPACT ENDS UP ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE BARRICADE!!
Stew-O: Xander takes a moment to breathe as Impact hasn’t moved since getting sent over the barricade, getting himself together before turning back to go get Impact back over, reaching over to bring up-
Jake Mercer: BUT XANDER GETS A RIGHT HAND TO THE FACE! IMPACT ISN’T DEAD!!! THAT MOMENT WASTED BY XANDER CAME BACK TO BITE AND IMPACT’S UP ON HIS FEET, HAVING TO FEND OFF XANDER AGAIN! IMPACT NOW WORKING ON CLIMBING UP ONTO THE BARRICADE!
Flannery McCoy: WHICH IS WHERE IT TURNS HE DOESN’T WANNA BE, AS XANDER RAISES HIM UP ONTO HIS SHOULDERS!! XANDER’S GOT IMPACT IN POSITION!! XANDER FLINGS HIM FORWARD FOR A INVERTED ALABAMA SLAM INTO THE APRON!!
Stew-O: Xander’s made it past Charlie Marr thus far, a man who’s known for his own ruthless side when he’s competing, and I believe it’s settling in that he’s going to have to go there himself to deal with Impact on this kind of stage! We can see Impact’s got a bloody mouth now in addition to that nose as he’s down on the ground, and Xander can’t let the moment pass him by to capitalize!
Flannery McCoy: I think he’s gotten that message loud and clear after the comeback he just had to fight off from Impact. Xander grabs a hold of the bloodied Impact and starts toward the steps, perhaps looking for some payback as to what happened on Dynasty just a few weeks ago!
Jake Mercer: How’s Impact supposed to take celebration pictures if Xander’s gonna fuck his face up?! We were supposed to go out and party together!
Flannery McCoy: In a pandemic? :mjpls:
Jake Mercer: That’s not the point! We can’t have THE man of the Impact Zone looking all fucked up!
Stew-O: He had no problem doing it to Xander, and now, Xander just may be aiming to return the favor!
(Xander gets Impact propped up properly against the steps, and for the crowd watching on, they remember just how gruesome the sight ended up being when Impact jumped off the top turnbuckle and onto the chair that would get driven onto Xander’s head. To say that Impact had left him a bloody, broken, brutalized mess would be an understatement.)
Flannery McCoy: Xander’s slow to make it up the stairs himself, having to climb over Impact just to try to make it to the top of the stairs in the first place-
Jake Mercer: Impact grabs Xander’s ankle, trying to stop him!
Stew-O: But Xander’s trying to shake him off now and he’s kicking at Impact with his other foot, fighting desperately to not let Impact get any room to make it back up and into the fight! Impact tries to hang on, albeit a futile attempt but that’s not his fault after the hits he’s taken, and Xander finally kicks him off!
Flannery McCoy: The champ gets to his feet on the top of the stairs and realizes he’s got to get down as Impact is pushing himself up, Xander coming down the steps- BUT IMPACT PULLS HIS LEGS FROM BENEATH HIM AND XANDER FALLS INTO THE JUTTED FRONT OF THE STEPS! XANDER’S BACK HAS ALREADY BEEN THROUGH ENOUGH AND THE STEPS DIDN’T DO ANYTHING TO HELP THAT JUST NOW!
Jake Mercer: AND THAT’S JUST WHAT IMPACT WANTED, AS HE GRABS XANDER AND TURNS HIM OVER, GOING UP THE STEPS AND STOMPING THE BACK OF HIS HEAD TO PUT XANDER’S FACE INTO THE STAIRS! THOSE REPEATED KICKS AND STOMPS FORCE XANDER AGAINST THOSE UNFORGIVING STEEL STEPS!!!
Stew-O: THERE’S NO ONE THERE TO STOP IMPACT FROM GOING ALL OUT LIKE HE IS NOW BUT FINALLY, AFTER ONE LAST STOMP, HE COMES DOWN FROM THE STEPS AND HE KICKS XANDER OFF OF THEM TO REVEAL A BLOODY FACE! XANDER’S BEEN CUT ACROSS THE FOREHEAD WHERE THERE’S BLOOD SEEPING FROM THE WOUND, HIS NOSE MAY BE BROKEN, AND HE’S GOT A RED MOUTH MATCHING IMPACT’S!
Flannery McCoy: Impact goes around the steps to grab Xander and he pulls him up, obviously tired himself as he has to get Xander into the ring! But once inside, Impact looks ready to pin him until he sees the referee still hasn’t made it up!
Jake Mercer: This is all Xander’s fault! Why are some of these referees practically made of paper?! 😭
Stew-O: Impact makes his way over to the side of the ring where the referee continues to lay unconscious before going back to Xander, not about to give him the chance to recover any sooner! Impact kicks Xander in the ribs and that has Xander weakly trying to cover up, showing that he isn’t completely out of this like we might’ve thought!
Flannery McCoy: Impact wipes his face, smearing the blood on his skin that’s just going to keep coming out, before stomping down on the backs of Xander’s legs! While standing on one, Impact is seemingly aiming to leave Xander unable to get back to his feet and that just might be what it takes! Impact now coming down onto them with a double knee drop, earning a shout from Xander as he’s got nowhere to go to try to shake that off!
Jake Mercer: Impact grabs one of the legs now, raising it up into the air and bringing Xander’s torso off the mat just to slam his knee down into the canvas! Xander clutches at his knee but Impact slaps his hands away, going for it again and driving it down with the same amount of authority! Xander turns over but Impact just grabs both legs now!
Stew-O: “WALLS OF IMPACT”!!! IMPACT GRABS XANDER AND MANAGES TO TURN HIM OVER BACK ONTO HIS STOMACH, AND XANDER IS ALREADY REACHING FOR THE ROPES AS IMPACT HAS HIM IN A LIONTAMER!!!
Flannery McCoy: THIS CROWD KNOWS THAT XANDER COULD BE ON THE VERGE OF TAPPING OUT IF IMPACT CAN HOLD ON! XANDER IS SHOUTING AS HE STRETCHES HIS ARM OUT FOR THE ROPES THAT HE’LL HAVE TO CRAWL TO, AND THE BLOOD COMING DOWN HIS FACE IS OBSCURING HIS VISION!
Jake Mercer: IF HE TAPS NOW, WE CAN GET A NEW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION, BECAUSE HERE COMES THE REFEREE!
(Outside the ring, the referee has pulled himself up and seeing the action in the ring, he slowly makes his way in and makes his way over to the two Elitists, obviously knowing that he’s missed plenty of the action.)
Stew-O: XANDER IS TRYING TO FIGHT THROUGH THIS WITH EVERYTHING HE’S GOT LEFT, BUT I’M THINKING THAT HE MIGHT BARELY BE ABLE TO HANG ON! IMPACT’S DONE A NUMBER ON HIM HERE IN THIS MATCH AND HE JUST MIGHT HAVE TO ACCEPT THIS IS THE END!
Flannery McCoy: IMPACT IS SHOUTING FOR XANDER TO FINALLY GIVE UP! IF HE DOES, THAT’LL MAKE 10 OVERALL WORLD TITLE REIGNS, THE MOST OF ANYONE IN EAW HISTORY! I KNOW IMPACT’S GOING TO FIGHT LIKE HELL TO HOLD THIS WHEN HE KNOWS HE’S THIS CLOSE!
Jake Mercer: AND WE’VE BEEN READY FOR IT!!! BLESS US, KING :blessed:!!!
Stew-O: XANDER’S PUSHING HIMSELF UP ONTO HIS FOREARMS BUT IMPACT IS TRYING TO KEEP THIS LIONTAMER ON AS TIGHT AS HE CAN!! BUT XANDER’S FORCING IMPACT TO HAVE TO ADJUST THE HOLD AS HE TRIES TO FIND A WAY TO TURN OUT OF IT!
Flannery McCoy: XANDER’S LOOKING FOR EVERY POSSIBLE ESCAPE! IMPACT IS UP ON HIS FEET WITH HOW XANDER’S TRYING TO PULL HIMSELF OUT OF THE HOLD!! XANDER TRYING TO CONTORT HIMSELF INTO TURNING OVER-
Stew-O: XANDER GETS OUT BUT IMPACT STILL HAS A HOLD OF THE LEGS! IMPACT’S FIGHTING TO TRY TO TURN XANDER BACK OVER! XANDER IS WRIGGLING ON THE MAT TRYING TO FREE HIMSELF BUT IMPACT IS DETERMINED TO HOLD ON!
Jake Mercer: BUT XANDER PULLS HIS LEGS IN AND SHOOTS THEM BACK OUT, KICKING IMPACT AWAY!!! FUCK!!
Stew-O: Xander goes to the ropes and Impact won’t be deterred, coming back after Xander, WHO PULLS IMPACT DOWN BY THE FRONT OF HIS GEAR AND HE GOES NECK-FIRST INTO THE MIDDLE ROPE! IMPACT ROLLS AWAY CLUTCHING AT HIS THROAT AND XANDER HURRIED CRAWLS OVER TO HIM, XANDER TRYING TO CAPITALIZE ON THE DISCOMBOBULATED IMPACT!
Flannery McCoy: “AMNESIA”!!! XANDER FINDS THE WHEREWITHAL TO PLANT IMPACT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING! XANDER WITH THE COVER!!!!
Stew-O: IMPACT KICKS OUT!!!
Jake Mercer: :whew:
Flannery McCoy: AND XANDER IS ABSOLUTELY LIVID!! XANDER SHOUTS AT THE REFEREE, ACTUALLY STARTLING THE OFFICIAL, AND THEN AT IMPACT! XANDER STARTS HAMMERING DOWN ON IMPACT, OBVIOUSLY NOT LIKING HOW CLOSE THIS MATCH HAS BEEN UP TO THIS POINT AND THE IDEA OF LOSING TONIGHT HAS XANDER ALL IN HIS EMOTIONS RIGHT NOW!!
Stew-O: But he’s got to keep it together! If this is how he’s going to react to everything after this point, Impact’s going to surely use that to his advantage if he can get back up!
Jake Mercer: Xander continues punching away, fed up and having had enough – surely the first time anyone’s used those words when it comes to Xander!
Stew-O: Xander needs to reel it in and reel it in fast; this is no way to go about this! Impact’s trying to cover up from the repeated blows to his head and we can see the blood now splattering on the mat as it comes from both competitors!
Flannery McCoy: The referee finally backs Xander off of Impact, reprimanding him for his actions just now and he’s got to check on Impact! The referee kneels down at his side- BUT XANDER PUSHES RIGHT PAST HIM TO GET TO IMPACT! Xander raises Impact up and whips him across the ring! IMPACT REBOUNDS OFF THE ROPES!
Stew-O: IMPACT COUNTERS THE POP-UP POWERBOMB ONCE AGAIN AND THIS TIME HE CAN JUST BARELY KEEP HIMSELF UP! XANDER SHOUTS ANGRILY AS HE TURNS, IMPACT COMING AT HIM AND PULLING HIM INTO A SMALL PACKAGE OF HIS OWN!!!
Flannery McCoy: XANDER KICKS OUT!!!!
Stew-O: XANDER HURRIES AS FAST AS HE CAN TO GET UP! XANDER TURNING TO GET TO HIS FEET!!!
Jake Mercer: “EVISCERATION”!!!!! THE CODEBREAKER CONNECTS!!!!!
Stew-O: XANDER GOES DOWN TO THE MAT LIKE A TON OF BRICKS AND IMPACT THROWS HIMSELF OVER INTO THE COVER!!! XANDER IS OUT!!!!
Jake Mercer: XANDER PAYNE KICKS OUT AGAIN?!
Flannery McCoy: XANDER IS NOT GIVING UP JUST YET! HE’S STILL IN THIS!!!
Stew-O: AND MUCH TO THE SHOCK OF EVERYONE ELSE!!! XANDER WAS THOUGHT TO BE DONE!!!
(Impact sits up looking down at Xander, a look of frustration coming over his face for the first time in the match, but unlike his opponent, he’s able to keep himself together.)
Jake Mercer: Man, get the fucking replay going! That was three!
Flannery McCoy: Except it wasn’t, reassured by the official who’s holding up two fingers to indicate the count!
Stew-O: Impact brings himself to stand over Xander, taking his time getting up before he reaches down and gets a hold of the Heavyweight Champion, taking him over to the corner and leaning into him to keep him up! Impact somehow finding the strength to lift Xander up onto the top turnbuckle!
Flannery McCoy: Impact’s looking to put this one away now, that much is clear as he positions Payne and starts to climb up as well! Impact lays into him with a number of shots on the way up, but I think it’s safe to say that Xander’s probably got now idea what’s even happening right now!
Jake Mercer: And that means that’s lucky for Impact, as he heads up top! Impact getting himself into position to pull Xander up for a superplex it looks like, but Xander isn’t budging!
Stew-O: Xander’s got his leg around the metal bar just behind the middle turnbuckle to hold himself in place, but that just leaves Impact to send shots down at his head! That bare first is colliding with the top of Xander’s skull and Xander’s repositioning his legs out in front of him! Impact’s still hammering away!
Jake Mercer: :lupe:
Flannery McCoy: IMPACT’S TRYING TO FIGHT HIS WAY THROUGH TO COMPLETING THIS MOVE BUT XANDER’S PUT HIMSELF INTO POSITION! XANDER SENDS A PUNCH UP INTO THE STOMACH OF IMPACT, STALLING HIM FOR THE MOMENT! IMPACT TRIES TO KEEP HIMSELF STEADY BUT XANDER STANDS UP ON THE MIDDLE TURNBUCKLE, SURPRISINGLY POPPING IMPACT INTO THE AIR!!
Stew-O: “LAST SEDATION” FROM UP OUT OF THE CORNER!!! XANDER THROWS IMPACT TO THE CANVAS AND THEY BOTH GO HURTLING TO THE MAT!!! IMPACT GOT THROWN A WAYS AHEAD OF XANDER, BUT HE’S CLEARLY OUT AND XANDER’S GOT TO MAKE HIS WAY OVER TO HIM!!!
Jake Mercer: XANDER STARTS TRUDGING OVER BUT HE’S STILL HURT, STILL BLOODY, AND YET IT LOOKS LIKE HE CAN MAKE IT!! XANDER IS HEADED STRAIGHT FOR IMPACT AND THE REFEREE IS WATCHING ON READY TO MAKE A MOVE!!!
Flannery McCoy: AND XANDER FINALLY GETS TO HIS SIDE, THROWING HIS ARM OVER IMPACT’S CHEST!!!!
Stew-O: IMPACT GETS HIS SHOULDER UP!!!!
Flannery McCoy: Xander can’t even bring himself to look at the referee right now! He lets his bloody forehead drop down to the mat after Impact forced himself over onto his side upon shooting his arm up, and Xander can’t believe it!
Jake Mercer: Well he better! That’s a 9-time – soon-to-be 10-time – World Champion that he’s in the ring with! Could he really have expected anything less from the G.O.A.T?!
Stew-O: Xander turns over onto his back with his hands to his face, shaking his head before he pushes his hands away, blood on his palms now as it settles in that this isn’t over and that he’s still got to try to put Impact away before Impact does it to him!
Flannery McCoy: Xander goes to the nearby ropes and pulls himself up, then stumbles back over to Impact to try to get him up! Xander reaches down and gets him, slowly working to bring him to his feet, BUT THERE’S IMPACT WITH THE PUNCH!
Stew-O: That gets Xander’s hand off of him for the time being but Xander’s still on his feet! Xander swings at Impact and catches him with a hit right back! Impact stumbles on unsteady legs as he gathers himself to throw a punch and he manages to land two on Xander this time!
Jake Mercer: Xander nearly goes down but he’s got something still in him driving him to keep him going! Xander comes back within range of Impact and goes for a hit, getting Impact in the better of this exchange right now and those punches are coming faster and faster!
Flannery McCoy: The referee is trying to call for Xander to get them away from the ropes and Xander sends Impact running with a whip across the ring! Impact coming back rebounding back!
Stew-O: BUT IMPACT GOES RIGHT THROUGH XANDER’S LEGS AS HE GOT HIMSELF SET, AND IMPACT GETS TO HIS FEET BEHIND HIM!! Xander whirls around confused before he sets his sights on Impact and goes to follow after him, Payne stepping out onto the apron and Xander looks to come down- BUT IMPACT SWEEPS THE LEGS AND XANDER TAKES A DISASTROUS FALL OFF THE APRON!!!
Flannery McCoy: Xander finds himself getting pulled up AND THEN SENT FLYING RIGHT INTO THE FRONT OF OUR COMMENTARY TABLE HERE!! XANDER COLLAPSES IN A HEAP JUST IN FRONT OF US AND IMPACT STALKS HIS WAY OVER, STOMPING DOWN ON THE LIFELESS BODY OF THE CHAMPION!
Jake Mercer: Impact holds nothing back, the referee calling for him to bring the action into the ring! He finds himself getting ignored though and Impact presses his boot down against Xander’s face, grinding it into the side of his face and Xander is down there trying to push him off but to no avail!
Stew-O: Impact brings him up off the ground and looks to send him into the side of the steps, THROWING XANDER HARD ENOUGH TO SHIFT THEM OUT OF PLACE! XANDER FALLS TO HIS SIDE AND HE’S GRABBING AT HIS ARM IN PAIN! But all this while Impact is starting to make his way over!!
Flannery McCoy: Impact grabs the arm and tries to force it into his possession, trying to work wedge it between the top and bottom of the stairs! Xander is trying to push him away but Impact kicks him while he’s down, and that stuns Xander long enough to subdue any fight out of him! But Impact got what he wanted and he steps back while Xander’s arm is stuck! AND IMPACT COMES CHARGING AT HIM NOW!!
Jake Mercer: FUCK! IMPACT MISSES AND HIS KNEE HITS NOTHING BUT THE STEPS! XANDER PULLS HIMSELF OUT OF THE WAY JUST IN TIME AND IMPACT IS GRABBING AT HIS KNEE, OBVIOUSLY HURT! XANDER CRAWLS OUT OF HIS LINE OF SIGHT, GOING TO THE APRON ON THE OTHER SIDE OF HIM WHILE HE’S CONSOLING HIS KNEE!
Stew-O: XANDER TAKES IMPACT OFF HIS FEET WITH A “URANAGE”!!!!! XANDER DROPS IMPACT DOWN ON THE FLOOR IN FRONT OF US AND THE REFEREE IS ONCE AGAIN DEMANDING THE ACTION GET BROUGHT BACK INTO THE RING!
Flannery McCoy: Good luck with that, they’re both down! And from the looks of things, Impact landed awkwardly on that arm upon collision as he’s got it held under him!
Jake Mercer: The ring official is at a loss, and shrugs, informing them that he’s got no choice but to start a count out!
Stew-O: Xander is the first move slowly turning himself over and moving to the apron, slowly using the apron skirt to bring himself up! Xander brings himself to unsteadily stand and he’s got the referee right in front of him, and Xander turns to Impact who’s still down, making his way over to him!
Flannery McCoy: Xander gets to Impact and Impact’s literally nothing but deadweight right now, as he’s not moving at all. It’s all Xander doing the lifting here!
Stew-O: Xander shoves him to hunch over the steps, while he rolls into the ring and then brings himself back out to force the count to restart! But Impact, however, dragged himself across the steps for a moment to try to escape! BUT XANDER CATCHES THE ARM AND SLAMS IT DOWN OVER THE STEPS!!!
Flannery McCoy: XANDER PINS IT DOWN AND COMES UP THE STAIRS, STOMPING DOWN ON IT! HE TAKES HIS BOOT AND DIGS IT INTO THE FOREARM OF IMPACT, IMPACT DOING EVERYTHING TO SHOVE HIM OFF!!
Stew-O: IMPACT STARTS DESPERATELY PUNCHING AT THE LEG ON HIS ARM WHILE XANDER PUTS HIS FULL WEIGHT ONTO IT!! BUT FINALLY IMPACT GETS HIM DOWN, XANDER BARELY LANDING ON HIS FEET BACK ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE STEPS!! But Impact is still holding that arm close as Xander follows after him, just for Impact to roll back into the ring!
Jake Mercer: Impact isn’t in the clear yet as Xander is right behind him, rolling in as well and Xander pulls himself up while Impact is bringing himself up in the corner. Xander makes his way over to get his hands on Impact but Impact sends a stray kick his way to fend him off!
Flannery McCoy: Xander doubles over and Impact uses the other arm to club him over the head! Xander drops to a knee and Impact strikes him over the head again, throwing everything he can into these hits as he sees that Xander’s just as tired and hurt!
Stew-O: Xander’s down on his knees and Impact just lets loose with a HUGE slap across the face!
Impact: (off-mic) What’d I tell you, huh?!
Flannery McCoy: Another slap to the face from Impact!
Impact: (off-mic) You ain’t Impact!
Jake Mercer: Talk to ‘em! 😤
Impact: (off-mic) It’s like I said, Impact is forever.
Stew-O: The slap that Xander just took nearly sent him falling over, and he grabs onto Xander’s hair to keep him up while he’s got that other hand raised in the air :lupe:
Impact: (off-mic) And why?
Flannery McCoy: Impact goes to strike once again- BUT XANDER SHIFTS OUT THE WAY AND XANDER TAKES HIM DOWN!! XANDER HAS THE ARM AND HE TAKES HIM DOWN!!! XANDER PULLS HIM DOWN AND GETS HIM INTO POSITION!!
Stew-O: AND XANDER IS GOING FOR THE RINGS OF SATURN!! XANDER HAS THE GOOD ARM TRAPPED WITH HIS LEGS AND THAT ARM THAT IMAPCT FELL ON OUTSIDE THE RING MOMENTS AGO, AND HE’S REACHING OUT FOR THE ROPES WITH IT!!
Jake Mercer: BUT XANDER GETS UNDER IT AND HE’S GOT IT FULLY APPLIED!!! XANDER HAS IMPACT TRAPPED IN THE SUBMISSION!!!
Flannery McCoy: XANDER LOCKS HIS HANDS AROUND IMPACT, HOLDING HIM IN PLACE AND HE’S LEANING BACK, APPLYING AS MUCH PRESSURE AS HE CAN!!!
Stew-O: IMPACT’S TRYING TO FIGHT THROUGH IT BUT XANDER GOUGES AT THE WOUNDS ON IMPACT’S FACE!! XANDER PUMMELING AT HIS FACE NOW WITH WHATEVER SHOTS HE CAN GET IN!!!!
Flannery McCoy: AND GOING BACK TO XANDER’S ENTRANCE, THIS IS SHADES OF BRODY SPARK’S “ILLUMINATION” AND IMPACT IS STILL TRYING TO GO!! IMPACT IS FIGHTING THIS WITH EVERYTHING HE’S GOT, TRYING TO GET ONE OF HIS ARMS FREE!!!
Jake Mercer: BUT I DON’T THINK HE’S GOING ANYWHERE! IMPACT’S TRYING TO FORCE AN ARM OUT OF THIS HOLD TO STAND A FIGHTING CHANCE BUT XANDER CAUGHT HIM WITH HIS GUARD DOWN!
Stew-O: IMPACT SHOUTING AT THE REFEREE THAT HE WON’T SUBMIT! XANDER ROARING OUT AS HE LEANS FURTHER BACK FOR IMPACT TO GIVE UP!! IMPACT IS HOLDING OUT FOR AS LONG AS HE CAN!!!
Flannery McCoy: BUT IT’S NOT GONNA HAPPEN!!! IMPACT IS STARTING TO FADE OUT AS XANDER HOLDING ON LIKE HIS LIFE DEPENDS ON IT!!!
Stew-O: THE REFEREE IS IN POSITION, WATCHING ON CLOSELY AND TRYING TO GET ANSWER FROM IMPACT AS HE’S TRYING TO GET OUT!! ALL OF XANDER’S WEIGHT ON HIS BACK AND IMPACT’S TAKEN DAMAGE THERE AS WELL, IT’LL BE HELL TRYING TO MOVE THEM BOTH TO THE ROPES!!
Jake Mercer: IMPACT’S FLAILING HIS LEGS BUT THEY’RE STARTING TO SLOW, IMPACT IS STUCK AND I THINK HE KNOWS IT!! AND SO DOES THE REFEREE!!!
Flannery McCoy: IMPACT’S FADING!! I IMPACT… IMPACT….
Stew-O: AND….. THERE IT IS!!!! IMPACT’S OUT!!!! IMPACT’S OUT!!! IT’S OVER!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(Moments after the bell rings, Xander finally lets go and rolls off of Impact, staying on his back as he doesn’t make a move except for the rising and falling of his chest.)
Stephie Love: HERE IS YOUR WINNER…. AND STILLLLLLLL THE EAW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION….. XAAAAANNNNNDDDEEEERRRR PAAAAAAAYYYYYYNNNNEEEEE!!!!
Stew-O: These two left everything in the ring and outside of it, shedding blood and sweat in this war for the EAW World Heavyweight Title!
Flannery McCoy: And what a match it was, with these two pushing each other’s limits after all they’d been through! It’s been weeks and weeks of exchanges, fights and brawls, but ultimately, Xander Payne gets the victory in the end and denies Impact a historic 10th reign!
Jake Mercer: Xander said this kind of moment would be career-defining and while I’ll always trust that Impact’s going to see that 10th reign, Xander stuck to his goals and got the better of Impact in the end! Impact’s a legend in this business for a reason, an all-time great with the work to show for it and the ability to back it up against anyone at any time, and he’s got the career to show for it. Xander’s undoubtedly got to be proud!
Stew-O: Underestimating Impact is never the way to go for anyone, but with all he’d done to test Xander’s mental fortitude and said how he’d gotten to Xander over the past few weeks, Xander found something in himself to take him to this moment!
(Xander is handed the EAW World Heavyweight Championship by the referee, who tries to assist in getting him to his feet, but Xander stumbles back into the corner that he uses to keep himself up. Xander raises the championship up into the air, his face still bleeding as the referee goes over to check on Impact.)
Flannery McCoy: It was called a clash of generations, but undoubtedly once again, Impact has shown that no matter the era, no matter the faces, no matter who’s making these rosters in the locker room, he’s going to be a pillar in EAW who’s going to be looked at as someone who raised the bar for everyone else to follow.
Stew-O: And that’s just the kind of victory that Xander needed to put himself on the map as the World Champion he wants to be! Xander went through it all, his own ups and downs, and when people wanted to question if he’d be able to see this one through, he’s got the World Heavyweight Championship to show for it!
(Xander leans into the ropes, shouting proudly as he keeps the World Heavyweight Championship raised with his music still going off. Xander makes his way to the turnbuckles, slowly but surely up to the middle buckle, where he raises the title once again, still the World Heavyweight Champion. From the shot of Xander, the scene fades out.)
