(A series of ancient depictions of hell including Dante’s Inferno.)
Narrator: Without good there is no evil. Without light there is no dark, created by The Devil was once an angel, standing at the right hand of God. Fallen into a sea of despair, banished into their own shattered kingdom.
Narrator: Is this what Hell is?
(It goes into various shots of Las Vegas including the MGM Grand, Luxor, Caesar’s Palace and the Strip)
Narrator: The Entertainment Capital of the World or better known as Sin City.
Narrator: A city of opportunity, where millions flock to the Jewel in the middle of the desert in search of riches beyond their wildest dreams and actions that happen and stay in Vegas, a place where you can lose all inhibitions and it is accepted. But as there are those who are winners, there will always be the losers crawling for their last penny, needing one more chance to strike it rich.
Narrator: From hitting the jackpots, to the fame and the fortune, the glitz and glamor, the spectacle that draws them from all four corners of the globe, find themselves basking in the light of Lady Luck, while the rest search for any sort of it.
Narrator: Every individual has their dream of becoming something greater, but greed, envy, sloth, gluttony, pride, lust and wrath, the seven deadly sins always lure the unsuspecting.
Narrator: And what they once saw as paradise transforms into the fires and brimstone, the greatest torment in challenge they must face on the grandest of all stages….
(Shots are then shown of Mr. DEDEDE, HRDO, Ronn Banks, Jamie O’Hara, Heart Break Boy, Tyler Parker, Scott Diamond, Kendra Shamez and more…))
Narrator:For fifteen years, men and women have created their own personal hell….
Narrator: At center stage even the warm spotlights can burn through their ambition of success.
Narrator: Like the chapters of a book, their stories are told through actions, words and the moments we never forget, the ones that teach the younger generation the price you pay for victory.
Narrator: EAW Fifteen has become the calling of this past season, where the legends of the past meet the stars of the future. And now we have arrived at the pinnacle which will see these different worlds collide.
Narrator: On this stage, their bodies will be put on the line, some for glory, others for revenge and the rest for survival. An event that can change the life of one single Elitist at the ring of the bell, but the question has always been asked, what are they willing to sacrifice?
Narrator: Their bodies? Their souls? All for the chance to be remembered in the annals of history. The fires burn. Will their dreams become ash?
Narrator: As Hell awaits.
(It transitions to various shots Kassidy Heart smiling, raising her arms in the air, then switches to Andrea Valentine holding the Universal Women’s Championship.)
Narrator: Do you have in possession the carrion to pay the boatman on the River Styx? Can you make it to the end of the long journey?
(Then it transitions to TLA holding the Answers World Championship victorious in one of his many title defenses, then switches to Impact after he just survived the Grand Rampage and punching his ticket to Pain for Pride)
Narrator: Through the walls of fire, in one that you created, or was taken to be forged in their name?
(A shot of a bloody Minerva seething as she glares at Drake King who smiles. Myles is then shown carrying the EAW World Championship.)
Narrator: Will the Devil get his due, and those who fail spend the rest of eternity in pure damnation?
(It then transitions to Andre Walker winning the King of Elite, switching to The Visual Prophet raising the EAW World Heavyweight Championship over his head.)
Narrator: In this hell, can you look into the eyes of the forces that stand in your way and fend them off, or will they watch you melt in the flames of defeat.
(The it has various shots of Charlie Marr, Donovan Duke, Alex Myers, the Off-Brand Amphetamines, Ximena Velazquez, Adam Lucas, Jake Smith, SOSA Henderson, Amber keys, Terry Chambers, Cameron Ella Ava, Chris Elite, Dr. Bethany Blue, Limmy Monaghan, Serenity Valdez, Ryan Wilson, Ms. Extreme, Joso, Jay Jerry Johnson, Harley Lewis, Hikari Kanno, Harper Lee, The Ice Aces, Daryl Kinkade, Jon Kelton, Lexi, Ruler, Veena Adams, Aurora Monroe, Sheridan Muller, Madison Kaline, Astraea Jordan, Cleopatra, Holly Arrow, Danny Tanner, Ronan Malosi, ARIA, Caroline and Candice Blair)
Narrator: Across these three nights, in Sin City, the land of debauchery and enabler to cast the first stone, these warriors will do the unthinkable under the main stage. They will fight for immortality, a reminder of who they are, what they will become and for the few, the last chance to grasp what has eluded them for so long.
Narrator: They will continue to build the pillars that the EAW have stood for without any fire able to burn them down for fifteen years! For some the pain will be too much to handle, for others, the pride of success will fulfill their every dream and the unlucky who roll a snake yes, they every nightmare.
(It then shows The Visual Prophet, Andre Walker, Myles, Drake King, Minerva, TLA, Impact, Andrea Valentine and Kassidy Heart on more time in various action.)
Narrator: Walk through the burning timbers, do not be afraid of the scorching heat. For this is their moment as the Devil watches their fight in his playground.
Narrator: Through Hell!
Narrator: The inferno of your path to glory awaits in Sin City!
Narrator: PAIN FOR PRIDE!
EAW: AND NOW EAW AND LIGHTYEAR PRESENTS THE FIFTEENTH ANNUAL PAIN FOR PRIDE!
(The fireworks start going off in Allegiant Stadium as the sold out crowd for night one is on their feet roaring and it is deafening. “Heaven and Hell” by Kanye West is blasting through the stadium as the camera pans to the three announce teams of Dynasty, Voltage and then last Showdown which it centers around as Deadprez, Gavin Kirkland and Eve are standing by….)
Deadprez: PAIN FOR PRIDE XV IS HERE AND WE ARE LIVE IN LAS VEGAS, NEVADA FOR THE SPECTACULAR THREE NIGHT EVENT WHERE EVERY CHAMPIONSHIP IS ON THE LINE, FEUDS WILL BE SETTLED, SCORES WILL UNDOUBTEDLY BE SOLVED AND SOME GRUDGES COME TO AN END!

REPRESENTING VOLTAGE IS NONE OTHER THAN JAMES PETERS, RICH RUSSILLO AND PERSEPHONE! AND FOR SHOWDOWN IT WILL BE ME, DEADPREZ ALONG WITH GAVIN KIRKLAND AND EVE! WHAT AN EVENT WE HAVE TONIGHT CAPPED OFF WITH FOUR HUGE MAIN EVENTS, A CASH IN THE VAULT AND SO MUCH MORE!
Eve: THIS IS DEFINITELY THE SHOWCASE OF THE IMMORTALS! THE RUNDOWN OF THE CARD TOP TO BOTTOM IS A MAIN EVENT EVERYWHERE ELSE AND THERE ARE SOME HIGH STAKES HERE TOPPED OFF BY FOUR WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP MATCHES!
Gavin Kirkland: EVERY HOT FEMALE ELITIST IS HERE IN LAS VEGAS! I’M IN HEAVEN… NOT HELL! WAIT… WHAT IS THAT!? LET’S TAKE IT DOWN TO THE DYNASTY CREW!
(“Range Brothers” by Baby Keem, Kendrick Lamar begins to blast across the PA system. The fans react in unexpected shock, which turns into total jubilation as Mr. DEDEDE’s theme music is a wonderful surprise. After the Chairman teased a major announcement on his social account earlier in the day, fans were hoping that they would get to see him here tonight.)
Stephie Love: PLEASE WELCOME THE CHAIRMAN OF ELITE ANSWERS WRESTLING… MR. DEDEDE!!!
(Mr. DEDEDE walks out onto the stage and he looks like a total snack. He wears an expertly tailored, designer black suit that is complimented by an expensive, silk, dark gray button down shirt. As seen last night on the red carpet, Mr. DEDEDE is wearing that same Disney Toy Story watch, which once spotted, had sent social media into a frenzy, and no doubt it was going to do the same thing tonight.)
Stew-O: For the first time in Pain for Pride history, that man is not competing inside the ring. I have to say, I was shocked when I found out that MR. DEDEDE would not be having a match this year, and there hasn’t been any explanation offered to any of us about that.
Flannery McCoy: Mr. DEDEDE has always been a businessman and a competitor, and I can only imagine that the business side of things has taken precedence. The #EAW15 movement has proven to be extremely lucrative for the company, with fans taking to social media every day to talk about their favorite moments featuring some of the returning faces. There has been more buzz than ever for the product we are all so proud to be a part of, and I know that Mr. DEDEDE has been particularly influential in making sure that this particular Pain for Pride, which is a milestone for this company, is the biggest in history.
Jake Mercer: And apparently he has been wheeling and dealing behind the scenes as well. I offered the Chairman a chance to clear up all the rumors that have been circulating about Disney buying EAW last night when I spoke with him and Kassidy Heart on the Hall of Fame red carpet.
Stew-O: And how did that work out for you, Jake?
Jake Mercer: He only wanted to talk about his wife, unfortunately.
Flannery McCoy: You mean Class of 2022 Hall of Fame member Kassidy Heart?
Jake Mercer: Yes. Her.
( Mr. DEDEDE is inside the ring now and Stephie has handed over the microphone. His music eventually fades out, and as that happens, the crowd starts to quiet down as well. As much as the fans want to see Mr. DEDEDE competing tonight, because he truly is the very essence of what Pain for Pride means, they’re somewhat satisfied they are getting a chance to hear him speak. )
Mr. DEDEDE: Good evening.
( This draws a huge reaction from the crowd and a little smirk crosses Mr. DEDEDE’s face. Very few people can get that type of reaction from just saying two simple words. He just has that kind of power and command of the crowd. )
Mr. DEDEDE: I could stand here and work the crowd, soak up the atmosphere, and hype up the card up, but it’s pretty obvious that this particular Pain for Pride will be special. Men and women will face obstacles and make choices that could send their careers sky-rocketing to the next level, or cause their house of cards to come tumbling down. There is excitement in the air. There is intrigue. There are dozens of Elitists in the back desperate to bring their best over the course of the next three nights and walk away with a season-ending victory. It gets said time and time again, and it bears repeating. This is the best time of year to be an Elitist.
( The fans start to cheer and Mr. DEDEDE is gracious enough to allow them. )
Mr. DEDEDE: This year’s spectacle caps off what has been an amazing and historic 15th year for Elite Answers Wrestling. For the last decade and a half, we have sat the standard for the pro-wrestling industry and have truly changed the sport for the better. We are a juggernaut when it comes to athlete competition and sports entertainment, and this great company has truly become one of the premiere attractions in the entire world. It’s understandable that after setting a ridiculously high standard for as long as we have that other companies would start to take an interest.
Mr. DEDEDE: A few years ago, EAW inked an exclusive deal with FOX that gave them media rights to our all female brand, Empire. It was a very lucrative deal for EAW at the time because the influx of new talent thanks to the REVOLT buy-out had spiced things up considerably on Thursday nights and helped solidify Empire as arguably the most competitive brand in the entire organization. Unfortunately, the Empire brand ended up shutting down thanks to the emotional, unstable, and toxic personalities that called it home, and EAW became fully integrated at the start of Season 13. What followed that were fresh feuds, exciting competition, and some history making moments that never would have happened otherwise. While the women’s division continues to be a front and center attraction, EAW as a whole has grown exponentially in the past two years and reached heights never before seen in terms of growth and popularity thanks to the rise of intergender competition and the female power movement.
(To his credit, Mr. DEDEDE manages to keep a smile on his face as he mentions the female power movement.)
Mr. DEDEDE: A few months ago, several billion dollar corporations expressed their interest in buying out the company and taking it to an even higher level. I won’t deny that there were some tempting offers. My good friend, Prince Mohammad bin Salman, offered me an overly generous price for this company as long as the women’s division could be absolved. The Saudi royal family were not very happy with my wife and her best friend’s actions back at Battle of Egypt, and while that situation was handled in private, Elite Answers Wrestling and Saudi Arabia have placed their relationship on a break. With a wife who is about to compete this weekend for the Universal Women’s Championship, I could not in good conscience dissolve the women’s division.
Mr. DEDEDE: As someone who doesn’t like to lose money, I turned to look at other offers that were put before me. I found myself overwhelmed and overjoyed by everything I was looking at, and if you are wondering why I opted to skip competing at Pain for Pride this year, the announcement I am about to make is your reason why. There was one deal on the table that I could not pass up, and after spending weeks finalizing everything and ironing out the final details, I am beyond thrilled to announce that effective after Pain for Pride, EAW will proudly enter into a mutually beneficial partnership with the Walt Disney Company!
( Mr. DEDEDE pauses to allow his words to sink in. The fans are unsure how to react, given that their beloved promotion is built on coarse language, adult subject matters, and extreme violence. )
Mr. DEDEDE: We have put into a place a one season, 10-billion dollar deal with the Walt Disney Company, giving them exclusive entertainment rights. Our weekly programming will be moving to ABC with ESPN2 being utilized on a per diem basis. All of our brands will be undergoing massive changes to fit with the Disney image and more details will be shared about that in the coming week. Marquee events, supershows, and Fight Grid tapings will air on Disney+, and all of this is just the tip of the iceberg!
( For the most part, the fans are speechless. )
Mr. DEDEDE: It’s going to be GREAT!
( “IF YA SMELLLLLLLLLLL” )
Mr. DEDEDE: 😐
( The crowd in the Allegiant Stadium instantly erupts into cheers upon hearing the sounds of ‘Electrifying’ by Adam Massare blasting through the speakers of the arena. )
Jake Mercer: Well I’ll be damned. I’m not really sure if this is the time, or the place for The Woogieman to be making an appearance :lupe:
( Inside the ring, Mr. DEDEDE does not look happy. The audacity of anyone interrupting him is one thing, but for it to be The Woogieman, and at this moment? Not acceptable. )
( The Woogieman makes his way out to the stage with his classic swagger, looking around and smelling the atmosphere surrounding him while the Las Vegas crowd soaks in his presence here tonight. He then sets his sights on the ring, looking at the EAW Chairman, who looks pissed about this unexpected interruption. )
Stew-O: :lupe: Now I love The Woogieman as much as everyone else, but I question why in the world he would ever come down to the ring at a time like this.
Flannery McCoy: Maybe he wants to be the face of EAW Disney?? :mjlol:
Stew-O: Something tells me that Mr. DEDEDE is not going to go for that.. Like, at all.
( Woogie makes his way up the steel steps and onto the apron, walking over and climbing up to the top rope before he raises his fist in the air. He closes his eyes and allows everything to soak in, before turning and jumping off of the turnbuckle and to the inside of the ring. He looks over at Mr. DEDEDE, before heading up to the opposite corner and raising his arm in the air again. He then jumps down as his music fades out. )
( Much to the crowd’s delight, Woogie produces a microphone. )
( Woogie from there bows down, raising the microphone that he has in his hand to his mouth. The crowd instantly goes dead silent in realization that The Woogieman is about to utter his first words, and that is… )
The Woogieman: FINALLY…
The Woogieman: THE WOOG HAS COME BACK TO LAS VEGAS!!!
Mr. DEDEDE: :francis:
(The crowd continues to cheer loudly while Woogie looks up to the rafters, clearly feeding off their energy here tonight. Mr. DEDEDE, on the other hand, still looks pissed off. He stares daggers at The Woogieman, who has stolen the moment, and the Chairman grips his microphone. )
Mr. DEDEDE: Can you please tell me what in the hell just possessed you to come out to this ring and interrupt me?
( A smile crosses The Woogieman’s face. )
The Woogieman: Mr. DEDEDE, do you like pie?
Mr. DEDEDE: :francis:
The Woogieman: Do you like strudel??
Mr. DEDEDE: :francis: You have about three seconds to get the he-
The Woogieman: IT DOESN’T MATTER WHAT YOU LIKE!!!
( The fans pop. They love The Woogieman cutting off Mr. DEDEDE like that. )
The Woogieman: I’ll tell you what The Woogieman likes, in addition to a good ole piece of apple pie. The Woogieman likes competition and as an influential figure that has graced an EAW ring for many years, The Woogieman is downright insulted that he was not invited to compete at the 15th edition of Pain for Pride. So Mr. DEDEDE, what do you say about going one-on-one with The Great One??
( The crowd cheers again while DEDEDE seems taken aback by Woogie’s gall to up and challen him. )
Mr. DEDEDE: You seriously want to have a match… with me? Like right now?
The Woogieman: The Woogieman doesn’t just want a match. He DEMANDS a match! I want you, in the ring… RIGHT NOW!
Crowd: YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES!
( Mr. DEDEDE truly seems floored that The Woogieman would have a death wish like this, not to mention he didn’t come to Pain for Pride to compete. As hard as it had been to let his streak go, Mr. DEDEDE had prioritized his business this time around as opposed to his vanity. However… )
Mr. DEDEDE: I’m going to ask you one more time. Are you serious about having a match with me right now?
The Woogie: The Woogieman says it’s time for Mr. DEDEDE to put up, or shut up!
( Mr. DEDEDE shakes his head and he starts removing his jacket, which whips the fans into an absolute frenzy. )
Stew-O: DEDEDE JUST TOSSED HIS BLAZER AWAY AND ROLLED UP HIS SLEEVES! WE’RE ABOUT TO SEE A DREAM MATCH HERE TONIGHT! MR. DEDEDE! THE WOOGIEMAN! ICON VERSUS ICON LIVE TO KICK OFF PAIN FOR PRIDE 15!!!
(Woogie looks more than ready as well as he takes off the tank top he has and tosses it to the outside. A referee is seen sprinting out from the backstage area and sliding into the ring, while DEDEDE yells at him to signal for the bell to get this impromptu match underway.)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Flannery McCoy: AND HERE WE GO! THIS IMPROMPTU MATCH IS OFFICIALLY UNDERWAY FOLKS WHILE DEDEDE EXPLODES OUT OF HIS CORNER READY TO GO FOR THIS ONE-
Jake Mercer: BUT BEFORE HE CAN DO ANYTHING HE’S MET WITH SOME REPEATED RIGHT HAND SHOTS TO THE FACE BY THE WOOGIEMAN! WOOGIE IS TEEING OFF RIGHT NOW AND DEDEDE DOESN’T KNOW WHAT TO DO! HE’S SO USED TO HAVING THE UPPER HAND ON HIS OPPONENTS BUT TONIGHT HE MIGHT’VE JUST MET HIS MATCH! AND LOOK AT WOOGIE GO!
Stew-O: LOOK AT THAT SLOBBERKNOCKER OF A PUNCH THAT SENDS DEDEDE INTO THE CORNER! WOOGIE TAKES A STEP BACK BUT QUICKLY APPROACHES DEDEDE- BUT DEDEDE BEGINS TO LAND SOME PUNCHES OF HIS OWN FORCING DEDEDE BACKWARD! DEDEDE FALLS AGAINST THE ROPES WHILE WOOGIE RUNS THE OPPOSITE SIDE- ONLY FOR DEDEDE TO LEAP INTO THE AIR AND CONNECT WITH A HIGH KNEE TO THE SKULL OF WOOGIE TO DROP HIM DOWN TO THE CANVAS!
Flannery McCoy: NOW DEDEDE STOMPS DOWN ON HIM REPEATEDLY KEEPING HIM DOWN ON THE MAT! THIS IS NOT HOW WOOGIE WANTED THIS ONE TO GO RIGHT NOW AND DEDEDE IS MAKING SURE THAT THIS MATCH IS SECURED IN HIS FAVOR! HE GRABS WOOGIE AND BRINGS HIM UP TO HIS FEET… BEFORE PULLING HIM IN AND CONNECTING WITH A KNEE TO THE ABDOMEN WHICH SENDS HIM DOWN TO A KNEELING POSITION! DEDEDE FROM THERE BEGINS TO HAMMER AWAY WITH REPEATED STOMPS TO THE CHEST TO FORCE HIM BACK DOWN TO THE CANVAS!
Jake Mercer: THIS HAS BEEN ALL DEDEDE RIGHT NOW AND DEDEDE LOOKS TO MAKE SURE OF THAT AS HE BRINGS WOOGIE UP, BEFORE DROPPING HIM DOWN WITH A SCOOP SLAM! DEDEDE FROM THERE THEN TURNS AROUND AND RUNS TO THE ROPES… BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A CORKSCREW ELBOW TO THE CHEST! DEDEDE THEN BRINGS WOOGIE UP! HE’S GOING FOR THE IMPALER! IMPALER DDT TO THE WOOGIEMAN-
Stew-O: BUT THAT DOESN’T HAPPEN WITH WOOGIE BEGINNING TO FIGHT OUT OF THE POSITION THAT HE’S IN WITH REPEATED SHOTS TOWARDS THE ABDOMEN OF THE CHAIRMAN! DEDEDE IS TRYING TO EXECUTE THE MOVE BUT WOOGIEMAN IS PUTTING UP A FIGHT! DEDEDE RELEASES THE HOLD AND STUMBLES BACK WHILE WOOGIE RUNS TO THE ROPES…. HE LEAPS INTO THE AIR AND ATTEMPTS A JUMPING CLOTHESLINE TO THE HEAD OF DEDEDE
Flannery McCoy: SPEAR! THE SPEAR TAKES THE WOOGIEMAN DOWN TO THE GROUND!
Jake Mercer: THIS MATCH HAS TAKEN A TURN FOR THE WORSE FOR WOOGIE AND NOW MR. DEDEDE LOOKS TO DELIVER THE KILLING BLOW! HE FALLS INTO THE CORNER, YELLING AT WOOGIE TO GET BACK UP TO HIS FEET ONE MORE TIME SO HE CAN FINISH THIS MATCH OFF FOR GOOD! WOOGIE STUMBLES BACK UP, NOT KNOWING WHERE THE FUCK HE IS…
Stew-O: BUT HE KNOWS NOW AS WOOGIE IS HIT WITH ONE MORE SPEAR THAT TAKES HIM DOWN TO THE CANVAS! DEDEDE ROLLS WOOGIE ONTO HIS BACK AND PINS HIS SHOULDERS TO THE MAT!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(‘Range Brothers’ once again begins to play up while Mr. DEDEDE sits up and pulls himself up to his feet using the ropes. The referee makes his way over and takes his hand, raising it high in the air while the crowd cheers at the amazing match that they’ve just got the chance to witness. It’s clear that DEDEDE looks very satisfied with what he just got to, composing himself before continuing his celebration with a grin.)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen, here is your winner… MR. DEDEDE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Flannery McCoy: WHAT A MATCH! WHAT A WAY TO OPEN THE SHOW! A battle between two legends of the game, who gave it their all and put on a spectacle that we will remember for years to come. But in the end only one could come out on top and that, my friends, was Gawd himself Mr. DEDEDE.
Jake Mercer: And THE WOOGIEMAN has shown that he can still go, he really LAID the SMACKDOWN on his CANDY ASS and proves that he can go toe to toe with the LEGENDS… kinda… I’d like to say those punches he got in were more than sufficient :wow:.
(The camera shows The Woogieman rolling out of the ring and beginning to make his way towards the back in disappointment. DEDEDE takes a glance at him before snickering as he continues his celebration inside of the ring, raising his hands in the air while the crowd cheers for the Chairman and another Pain For Pride match in the books for him.)
Stew-O: Wait a minute, who’s that…?
(The camera goes over to the ring to show a figure beginning to make their way out from the backstage area as everyone then begins to quickly take notice.)
Flannery McCoy: Is that MICKEY MOUSE???
(None other than Mickey Mouse is seen making his way out while the crowd begins to erupt into absolutely thunderous cheers. DEDEDE has begun to take notice of this inside of the ring and he has the biggest smile possible on his face while he welcomes Mickey to the EAW atmosphere.)
Jake Mercer: IT’S A RAT! I THOUGHT DRAKE KING WASN’T SUPPOSED TO BE HERE UNTIL HIS MATCH!
(Mickey slides into the ring, taking a look at DEDEDE while the two of them lock eyes with one another. From there, the two of them embrace into a huge hug while the crowd cheer loudly, signaling the beginning of what should be a successful partnership with Elite Answers Wrestling and Disney. ‘Range Brothers’ continues to play in the background while Pain For Pride, from there, begins to go to its first commercial break.)
(A commercial is shown for Spotify starring Jake Smith, listen to his Pain For Pride playlist ahead of his highly anticipated participation in the Cash in The Vault match! https://open.spotify.com/playlist/34jQub27YUv8wywunyQEFV?si=2d4e6b43d3ad458a)
(The camera cuts to Gina Romano in the ring.)
Gina Romano: THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SCHEDULED FOR…ONE FALL!!
Crowd: ONE FALL!!
(‘Natural’ by Imagine Dragons plays to a thunderous reaction as Terry steps out from the curtain, taking a moment to soak it all in as pyro sets off, and he begins marching down to the ring with a purpose, intensely focused on his match with Limmy Monaghan tonight, refusing to lose on such a grand stage.)
Gina Romano: Introducing first! Hailing out of Los Angeles, California, weighing in at 257 pounds…HE IS THE BARBARIC CARNIVORE…TERRY CHAMBERS!
Eve: This all started when Terry issued an open challenge for someone to step up over on Dynasty, however, no one did.
Deadprez: Not to be deterred, Terry came over to Showdown, challenging Limmy Monaghan, one of our top stars on the blue brand.
Eve: And here we are now, Limmy versus Terry, could Terry be getting sent home for good by Monaghan?
Deadprez: Chambers certainly ain’t gonna roll over, and allow that to happen. He’s gonna bring the fight to Limmy Monaghan.
(Momentarily, the lights in the Allegiant Stadium would all snap to pitch black, as nothing more than the flashlights on audience attendees’ phones can be seen. They would sit in utter silence, and darkness, for just a few short seconds before eventually a spiralling spotlight, shining a bright white color, would be seen on the stage. Moments later the opening riff to ‘Dead or Lie’ by TRUSTRICK [english ver. by Jenny] would hit the speakers, before eventually none other than Limmy Monaghan would walk onto the stage, only visible by the spiral spotlight behind him. As the lights in the arena slowly begin to turn back on, it’d become visible what Limmy is wearing – a black and white version of his regular tights, kneepads featuring a red Monokuma eye, and kickpads, with text relating to his entire season being scrolled down on every bit of his attire in a distressed red font, reading phrases such as “outlast”, “Monarch” and most importantly “Ultimate Despair.” Also wearing a long black and white cape that touches the ramp, Limmy would soon point to the sky, as pyro shoots off throughout the Pain For Pride stage.)
Gina Romano: And introducing his opponent… hailing from Beverly Hills, California… weighing in at 224 pounds… he is the “ULTIMATE DESPAIR”…. LIIIMMMMMYYYYY MOOOONAAAAAAGHAAAAAAAAAN!!!!!!!
Gavin Kirkland; TALK ABOUT MAKING AN ENTRANCE!! HAIDJDUHRNEKFJF
Eve: Terry doesn’t seem to be impressed with the entrance, and is just ready for Limmy to enter the ring.
Deadprez: The man wants to fight, and I’m sure everybody wants to see that too, but it’s Pain for Pride, it’s go big or go home for this night.
Eve: What a night this could be for Limmy, a big entrance, and a big win to boot. We know that isn’t out of reach, we’ve seen him defeat top stars of today, and he can certainly do so again if he manages to catch Terry with that Empire State of Mind.
(Limmy takes off his cape, handing to a stagehand on the outside, and shifting attention over to Terry Chambers in the opposite corner, the two staring each other down as the referee signals for the bell to ring.)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Eve: There’s the bell, and both competitors circle each other, sorta in the feeling out process here before locking up in the center of the ring, much to the delight of these fans, who’s anticipation has been building. But early on, Terry outpowers Limmy, shoving him back into the corner.
Gavin Kirkland: Don’t worry, Limommy was just warming up, that’s all!
Eve: We’ll see as Limmy circles Terry once more before beginning to close the distance between the two. Terry tries for another lockup, but Limmy changes the approach, making a go behind on Chambers for a rear waistlock, quickly transitioning into a standing side headlock. Limmy wrenches on it before trying a side headlock takedown, but Terry blocks Limmy from doing so, wrapping his arms around the waist of Monaghan, and pulling him back up from a kneel to a vertical base.
Deadprez: From there, Terry simply shoves Limmy off, and Monaghan catches himself on the ropes. But Limmy isn’t deterred, circling Terry again, who attempts another collar and elbow, but we get a repeat from earlier instead with Limmy ducking underneath for a go behind, transitioned right into a standing side headlock. Terry lifts Limmy up for a back suplex, but Monaghan backflips out of it, and pushes Chambers forward.
Eve: Limmy had the chance to capitalize there, but opted to play mind games with Terry instead. Now, both competitors circle each other before Limmy invites Terry to meet him in the center of the ring. Looks like Terry wants a test of strength, and Limmy engages, locking one of his hands together with Terry’s.
Gavin Kirkland: I wish he’d hold my hand.
Deadprez: But before locking the other hand, Terry delivers a kick to the gut of Chambers, and wringing his arm afterwards! Terry uses his free hand to swing down on Limmy’s, breaking his grip, and TERRY GOES FOR A CLOTHESLINE! LIMMY DUCKS UNDERNEATH IT, AND RUNS OFF THE ROPES FOR A FRANKENSTEINER! CAUSING TERRY TO ROLL OUT THE RING!
Gavin Kirkland: Like I said, just warming up.
Eve: You can see Limmy’s confidence start to grow as a smirk forms across his face. Terry doesn’t seem too amused though, and takes his time to re-enter the ring, probably thinking up a game plan.
Gavin Kirkland: Whatever it is, won’t be enough to stop THE MONARCH!
Eve: :wow: Terry starts to close in Limmy, who backs himself into the corner. Monaghan starts to realize this, and tries to exit out of it, only for Terry to pull him back in! CHAMBERS TRIES FOR A RIGHT HAND! HOWEVER, ITS A SWING AND A MISS! HE GOES FOR ANOTHER, BUT LIMMY DUCKS BELOW IT ONCE MORE! And now Terry is on the receiving end of forearm strikes by Monaghan, but those aren’t doing too much damage this early on in the match, and Terry manages to shrug it off, pushing Limmy back, creating separation between the two.
Deadprez: Terry looks like he’s done playing around, and marches toward Limmy, who rolls out underneath the bottom rope. Chambers is starting to get frustrated with his opponent, who encourages Terry to come out himself, which he does. But Limmy immediately slides back into the ring, Terry does the same, BUT GETS CAUGHT WITH A KICK TO THE RIBS BEFORE HE COULD GET UP TO ALL FOURS! Limmy is outsmarting Chambers here, now pummeling him with stomps to the back!
Eve: Terry flattens on the canvas prone, but gets brought back to his feet by Monaghan. KNIFE EDGE CHOP ECHOES THROUGHOUT THE ARENA! That only seems to fire Terry up though, but Limmy halts any attempt at momentum building with stiff forearms to the face, stunning Chambers. MONAGHAN REBOUNDS OFF THE ROPES! BUT TERRY RUNS PAST LIMMY TO REBOUND OFF IT HIMSELF! LIMMY TURNS AROUND RIGHT INTO A SHOULDER TACKLE!
Deadprez: Limmy got bulldozed there by Chambers, and now rolls out of the ring himself, clutching at his shoulder. Monaghan cannot take Terry lightly, and I think he’s coming to realize that now.
Eve: It’s very similar to the events of earlier with Limmy taking his time to re-enter the ring, but does, seemingly having a new game plan in mind.
Deadprez: Single leg takedown attempt by Monaghan, but Terry stands his ground, delivering a clubbing blow to the back, dropping Limmy down to a knee. Terry grabs him in a front facelock for another clubbing blow to the back. Terry stands Limmy up now, and leans him up against the ropes, bouncing him off with an Irish whip!
Eve: Terry ducks down, perhaps signaling for a back body drop. BUT HE DID SO TOO EARLY, ALLOWING LIMMY TO CONNECT WITH A PENALTY KICK TO THE FACE, WHICH HAS TERRY REELING! Limmy runs off the ropes again, BUT TERRY WANTS A REPEAT OF EARLIER, RUNNING PAST MONAGHAN TO REBOUND OFF THE ROPES HIMSELF, MAYBE WANTING ANOTHER SHOULDER TACKLE!
Gavin Kirkland: BUT THE MONARCH SHUTS THAT RIGHT DOWN WITH A FOREARM STRIKE, JACKING THE JAW OF TERRY’S PREVIOUSLY FAT ASS!
Deadprez: Limmy hooks one arm for a dragon suplex, but Terry fights out with a back elbow, then another! Monaghan looks groggy, and Terry takes this time to hit the ropes, but Limmy takes a page out of his book, running past Terry to rebound off the ropes himself. BUT CHAMBERS SPINS RIGHT INTO A CLOTHESLINE THAT TURNS LIMMY INSIDE OUT!
Eve: Monaghan tries crawling away from Terry, slowly picking himself up in the corner, only getting to a knee before Chambers hoists him up for a suplex, BUT TOSSES LIMMY HALFWAY ACROSS THE RING! Monaghan certainly felt that, wincing in pain as he rolled over to his belly.
Deadprez: One thing we’ve learnt about Limmy though is that he’s a fighter, he’s not gonna stay down, and he’s trying to pick himself back up. However, Terry intervenes once Monaghan gets to all fours, DEADLIFTING HIM UP FOR A SIT-OUT POWERBOMB!
Eve: That was explosive offense there by Terry, and allowed him to score a two count, but it’s gonna take a lot more than that to put his opponent away. But look at Terry, who’s already posting in the corner for Random Act of Violence, urging, even daring Limmy to get back to his feet!
Gavin Kirkland: NO! STAY DOWN!
Deadprez: Slowly, Limmy gets back to a vertical base, and turns around into RANDOM ACT OF VIOLENCE!
Eve: NO! TERRY RAN RIGHT INTO A BIG BOOT, GLOSSING HIM OVER! Limmy can’t capitalize just yet, being doubled over, hoping to catch his breath. Terry recovers from that big boot, and grabs the head of Monaghan, BUT LIMMY BREAKS FREE WITH MURDER TO EXCELLENCE! THE BICYCLE KNEE STRIKE STAGGERS TERRY, AND HE REBOUNDS OFF THE ROPES, RIGHT INTO A SNAPMARE BY LIMMY, RUNNING OFF THE ROPES FOR A PENALTY KICK TO THE CHEST!
Deadprez: MONAGHAN RUSHES INTO THE COVER, HOOKING THE LEG ON TERRY!
Deadprez: Immediate kickout there! But Limmy isn’t gonna waste any time getting back on Terry, standing him up. TERRY BREAKS FREE WITH A CLOTHESLINE, BUT LIMMY CATCHES HIM IN POSITION FOR ASYSTOLE! THE HIGH-ANGLE URANAGE SLAM CONNECTS, DUMPING TERRY RIGHT ON HIS NECK! THE COVER IS MADE, HOOKING THE LEG!
Eve: AND THERES A KICKOUT AT TWO! Limmy picks himself back up, using assistance from the ropes, and Terry finds his way back to a vertical base as well, stumbling into the corner. Limmy is in hot pursuit, scoring a KNIFE EDGE CHOP! And now Monaghan walks away to create separation between him and a stunned Chambers! …AND WERE ABOUT TO SEE WHY AS LIMMY RUNS WITH A FULL HEAD OF STEAM!
Deadprez: BUT TERRY SENDS HIM UP AND OVER HIS SHOULDER! LIMMY CATCHES HIMSELF ON THE APRON, AND LANDS A FOREARM STRIKE TO THE FACE OF CHAMBERS, KNOCKING HIM BACK A BIT! LIMMY GOES FOR A SPRINGBOARD- WE DONT FIND OUT AS TERRY SCOOPS HIM UP IN A FIREMANS CARRY WHILE HE WAS BALANCED ON THE TOP ROPE!
Eve: Terry walks with Limmy to the center of the ring, but is on the receiving end of elbows to the jaw! Limmy slips out behind Terry, and hooks his arm for the dragon suplex, going for the other, but Terry counters again with repeated back elbows to the face! Chambers goes for a final blow, but Limmy ducks below it, and Terry turns toward Monaghan, getting double leg tripped down the canvas for a BOSTON CRAB!
Deadprez: THAT PUTS TORQUE ON YOUR BACK!
Gavin Kirkland: And with that said, I think Terry needs to tap in order to avoid further injury! :troll:
Deadprez: You can see Terry’s in pain, and starts pulling himself to the ropes, grabbing onto the bottom one, and pulling himself out of the ring. Terry momentarily grabs at his lower back, but ultimately pulls himself up on the apron afterward. Limmy sees this, AND KNOCKS HIM RIGHT OFF WITH AN ELBOW SMASH! Terry picks himself up ringside, using our announce table for assistance.
Eve: But look at Limmy, the gears seem to be turning in his head, and he SPRINGBOARDS OFF THE ROPES FOR A FOREARM THROUGH OUR ANNOUNCERS DESK!
Gavin Kirkland: OH MY GOD! BOTH COMPETITORS LOOK DEAD, MOST IMPORTANTLY, LIMMY! ILL HAVE TO GIVE HIM MOUTH TO MOUT-
Eve: Don’t bother, weirdo, I’m sure we have medics for that, and of course, Lexi.
Deadprez: Well, both competitors are laid out now, barely having moved after that forearm by Limmy, who sacrificed his own body there. But he isn’t looking to walk away from this thing empty handed, he wants to put away Terry Chambers.
Referee: ONE! TWO! THREE!
Eve: As you can see, the referee is beginning to count, and Limmy is starting to stir.
Referee: FOUR! FIVE!
Eve: Limmy has to bring 257 pounds of dead weight back into the ring now, pulling Terry back to his feet, and rolling him in at the count of eight! Limmy re-enters the ring, and Terry starts to stir himself, getting to all fours. Limmy starts to pick him back up, realizing he has to do further damage, but TERRY ONLY GETS UP TO A KNEEL, FIGHTING BACK WITH SHOTS TO THE RIBCAGE!
Deadprez: Chambers stands up vertically now, BUT IS ON THE RECEIVING END OF A FOREARM FLURRY BY LIMMY! TERRY SHOVES HIM BACK, AND MONAGHAN BOUNCES OFF THE ROPES, COMING BACK WITH A RUNNING KNEE!
Eve: NOT JUST ANY RUNNING KNEE, THAT HAD TO BE AN ODE TO CONSUELA ROSA AVA WITH LA RODILLA DE LA MUERTE, SHOWING DISRESPECT TOWARDS TERRY!
Deadprez: Limmy could go for the cover here, but drags Terry in dropzone distance, climbing to the top rope with his back towards the downed Chambers. …MOONSAULT!
Gavin Kirkland: NO! TERRY GOT THE KNEES UP, AND GRABS LIMMY IN A SMALL PACKAGE!
Eve: OOH! TERRY ALMOST HAD HIM RIGHT THERE, BUT MONAGHAN MANAGES TO KICK OUT! Terry sits up, already feeling the effects of this grueling contest, and possibly conjuring up his next plan of attack. Limmy sits up, and starts picking himself up in the corner, Terry realizes this, and stands up, approaching Limmy. But eats a big boot from Monaghan for his troubles, staggering him back a bit.
Deadprez: Limmy hops to the middle rope, AND DIVES OFF WITH A DDT ATTEMPT! BUT TERRY HOLDS HIS GROUND, PROCEEDING TO DRIVE LIMMY BACK FIRST INTO THE CORNER, BUT ALSO HIS SHOULDER INTO MONAGHAN’S GUT, TAKING EVEN MORE AIR OUT OF HIS LUNGS THAN THOSE DOUBLE KNEES ID IMAGINE!
Eve: Limmy’s hurt, grabbing at his abdomen, but that doesn’t stop him from fighting, UNLOADING ON TERRY WITH BACK TO BACK FOREARMS! BUT ONE FOREARM SMASH FROM CHAMBERS IS ENOUGH TO KNOCK LIMMY BACK INTO THAT CORNER! Terry lifts him to the top turnbuckle, AND SENDS LIMMY TUMBLING TO THE OUTSIDE WITH A BIG BOOT!
Deadprez: Terry’s starting to amp up the aggression, heading to the outside, and slamming Limmy face first off the steel steps. But he isn’t done yet, bouncing Limmy off the Spanish announce table next. Monaghan gets sent up and over the barricade now into the crowd area! Meanwhile, Terry has something in mind.
(Terry briefly rolls into the ring before rolling back out, restarting the referee’s count, and buying himself time he begins to expose the concrete floor, pulling back some of the padding ringside.)
Eve: Uh-oh, this can’t spell out good things for Monaghan, who’s still sprawled out in the crowd area. Terry realizes this, and goes over the barricade to retrieve him. Chambers grabs the back of Limmy’s head, and tries to send him over, but Monaghan counters last minute, whipping Terry gut first into that exposed side of the barricade.
Deadprez: Terry turns around to face Limmy, WHO CHARGES IN WITH A EUROPEAN UPPERCUT THAT ALMOST SENDS THEM BOTH OVER WITH THE IMPACT IT HAD, BUT TERRY DROPS TO BOTH KNEES! Limmy hops over the barricade, and enters the ring, climbing to the top rope, but even standing himself on the LED ringpost. What could he possibly have in mind here???
Eve: LIMMY LEAPS OVER THE BARRICADE WITH A CROSSBODY RIGHT AS TERRY GOT BACK TO HIS FEET! BOTH COMPETITORS HAVE BEEN ONCE AGAIN WIPED OUT!
Deadprez: Again, sacrificing his body. …Limmy finally comes to, sending him over the barricade, and rolls Terry back into the ring. Chambers gets up to a knee, still a bit dazed from that innovative offense, but and Monaghan starts his ascension to the top rope. But after getting one foot on the top rope, Terry takes advantage of this, and spins Limmy around.
Eve: Monaghan’s sat on the top turnbuckle now, his back to Terry, who grabs him in position for a crucifix, BUILDING UP STEAM FOR A RUNNING CRUCIFIX POWERBOMB INTO THE OPPOSITE CORNER! Limmy crumples to the canvas, and gets dragged away from the ropes by Terry for a cover!
Deadprez: NO! LIMMY GETS THE SHOULDER UP! And Terry starts to question what more he has to do in order to put this talent away. We know that Limmy’s a resilient competitor, so honestly, who knows?
Eve: Terry’s gonna try to wrap this thing up now though, picking Limmy back up, and trying to hook his arms for Chambers of Pain. BUT LIMMY STARTS TO SQUIRM BEFORE TERRY COULD COMPLETELY CLASP HIS HANDS TOGETHER, ESCAPING THE FUTURE SHOCK DDT, AND PULLING TERRY FACE FIRST INTO THE MIDDLE TURNBUCKLE!
Deadprez: Terry stumbles back to the middle of the ring, and Limmy uses the ropes to pull himself back up, CHARGING AT TERRY WITH ANOTHER MURDER TO EXCELLENCE, CHAMBERS TUMBLES OUT THROUGH THE MIDDLE ROPE, LANDING ON HIS FEET!
Eve: AND LIMMY RUNS OFF THE ROPES FOR A SUICIDE SENTON, SOARING THROUGH THE MIDDLE ROPE! Again, Limmy throws caution to the wind, sacrificing himself. That was not pretty for either competitor, both hitting back first into the barricade, and falling down ringside, neither showing signs of life.
Gavin Kirkland: CMON, LIMMY! GET UP!
Deadprez: Limmy stands himself back up with aid from the apron, and Terry uses the barricade for assistance instead. Monaghan rolls Chambers back into the ring, following after. Terry is back to his feet, AND LIMMY CHARGES, DUCKING UNDERNEATH A CLOTHESLINE, RUNNING OFF THE ROPES FOR A SLINGBLADE! IS THAT ENOUGH FOR THE WIN AS MONAGHAN HOOKS THE LEG FOR A COVER!
Eve: TERRY POWERS OUT! Limmy Monaghan contemplates to himself now before rolling out to the apron, stalking Terry, waiting for him to get back to his feet, which he soon does. …LIMMY SPRINGBOARDS OFF THE TOP ROPE!
Deadprez: BUT TERRY DUCKS UNDERNEATH WHATEVER LIMMY HAD PLANNED, FORCING HIM TO LAND ON HIS FEET! LIMMY TURNS AROUND, AND ALMOST GETS CAUGHT WITH A RANDOM ACT OF VIOLENCE! BUT AS TERRY WAS GONNA LEAP IN THE AIR, LIMMY CAUGHT HIM WITH A SUPERKICK, AND HOISTS CHAMBERS UP FOR BERMUDAS END!
Eve: BUT TERRY SHIMMIES DOWN THE KNEELING BELLY-TO-BACK PILEDRIVER FOR A SUNSET FLIP ON MONAGHAN!
Eve: BOTH COMPETITORS ROLL THROUGH TO THEIR FEET, AND LIMMY WANDERS RIGHT INTO THE MOMENT OF SILENCE! HEADBUTT CONNECTS, AND DROPS MONAGHAN TO THE CANVAS! TERRY FALLS INTO THE COVER!
Deadprez: KICKOUT! I feel like Terry has to be gaining some newfound respect for Monaghan here, seeing how much punishment he can endure first hand. But look at Chambers now, leaning a groggy Limmy in the corner, and lifting him up to the top turnbuckle. Terry climbs to the middle rope now, and wants a superplex from the looks of it.
Eve: BUT LIMMY FIGHTS OUT WITH SHOTS TO THE BODY, NOW BOUNCING TERRY FACE FIRST OFF THE TOP TURNBUCKLE, AND PEELING HIM OFF WITH THE MIDDLE ROPE WITH AN AVALANCHE SUNSET FLIP, LANDING ON HIS FEET, AND WALKING WITH TERRY TO THE CENTER OF THE RING WITH A SIT-OUT POWERBOMB! LIMMY HOLDS IT FOR THE COVER!
Deadprez: TERRY KICKSOUT!
Eve: We’ve been talking up the strength of Terry Chambers, but what about the strength of Limmy Monaghan?
Gavin Kirkland: As always, impressive!
Eve: Terry rolls away from Limmy, pulling himself up in the corner, but here comes Monaghan with a CORNER RUNNING EUROPEAN UPPERCUT! Limmy backpedals for ANOTHER! Terry’s out of it, and gets lifted to the top turnbuckle. Limmy climbs to the middle, but Terry promptly shoves Monaghan off the middle rope!
Deadprez: LIMMY CHARGES IN WITH A FOREARM WHILE TERRY WAS PERCHED UP THERE, AND CLIMBS TO THE MIDDLE TURNBUCKLE AGAIN! LIMMY’S GONNA GO FOR AN AVALANCHE HURRICANRAN- NO!
Eve: TERRY HOLDS HIM IN PLACE, BALANCING HIMSELF ON THE MIDDLE ROPE, AND DIVING OFF WITH A SPIKE PILEDRIVER ON MONAGHAN!
Deadprez: VERY REMINISCENT TO THE WAY HE WAS ELIMINATED AT GRAND RAMPAGE! TERRY SHOOTS THE HALF ON TERRY, AND THE REFEREE GETS INTO POSITION!
Eve: TWO COUNT! Terry pounds the mat in frustration one good time, and starts to pull Limmy back to his feet.
Deadprez: Terry’s gonna try Chambers of Pain one more time. BUT LIMMY TWIRLS OUT OF IT, KICKING TERRY IN THE GUT, AND WHILE TAKING A MOMENT TO FAVOR HIS SKULL, LIMMY GRABS TERRY FOR THE DOUBLE UNDERHOOK DDT! Could we see another act of disrespect here?
Eve: NO! Terry wisely drops to his knee, dead weighting Monaghan, who starts to club the of Terry, amping up the aggression himself. Limmy tries for Chambers of Pain again, BUT TERRY BREAKS OUT OF IT WITH MOMENT OF SILENCE!
Deadprez: HOWEVER, LIMMY IS ONLY ON WOBBLY LEGS, HE ISNT GOING DOWN, AND SPINS AROUND TO CONNECT WITH A SPINNING BACK KICK TO THE GUT OF CHAMBERS! PENALTY KICK TO THE FACE FOLLOWS THAT UP, AND TERRY DUCKS UNDERNEATH A ROUNDHOUSE KICK, AND LIMMY TURNS RIGHT AROUND INTO A SPINEBUSTER! TERRY STACKS LIMMY UP FOR THE COVER!
Eve: KICKOUT! Terry’s on all fours, and Limmy’s slowly trying to come back to. Terry grabs Limmy by the hair, pulling him up to both knees now, AND LANDING A RIGHT HAND! LIMMY FIRES BACK WITH A FOREARM!
Deadprez: TERRY ANSWERS WITH A RIGHT HAND! LIMMY GRABS THE HAIR OF TERRY NOW, AND TAGS HIM WITH A BARRAGE OF PUNCHES! TERRY SCORES A HARD RIGHT HAND!
Eve: LIMMY LANDS REPEATED ELBOW STRIKES, BUT TERRY ONLY HITS ONE, TURNING LIMMY AROUND! BUT TERRY GETS CAUGHT WITH A PELE KICK! Chambers is only spaghetti legs, and Limmy stands himself up, running off the ropes in front of Terry, WHO CLOTHESLINE HIM OVER!
Deadprez: TERRY RUSHES TO THE OUTSIDE, AND HOOKS BOTH ARMS OF A STUNNED LIMMY, BRINGING HIM OVER THE EXPOSED CONCRETE FLOOR NOW! LIMMY’S SQUIRMING, SEEING WHAT AWAITS HIS FUTURE! BUT ITS NO USE AS TERRY SPIKES HIM WITH THE CHAMBERS OF PAIN! Limmy isn’t moving, but Terry also got a lot taken out of him with that move, wincing in pain.
Eve: Terry uses the apron for help, but remains clutching at his lower back. Limmy is unresponsive, and gets sent back into the ring. Chambers crawls into the cover, having wasted some time here, struggling to recover from that double underhook DDT on the concrete.
Gavin Kirkland: YES!
Deadprez: LIMMY BARELY INCHES THE SHOULDER UP OFF THE CANVAS, AND I MEAN BARELY! Terry can’t believe it, and looks to possibly be doubting himself. He just DDT’d the man on concrete, not many can come back from that.
Eve: Terry grabs Limmy in a front facelock, bringing him back to his feet, and standing Limmy upright. Although, he’s on wobbly legs right now. I think Terry is ready to put the finishing touches on this al-
Gavin Kirkland: LIMMY WITH A SLAP ACROSS THE FACE OF TERRY!
Deadprez: THAT SLAP TURNED CHAMBERS AROUND, AND LIMMY STARTS TO LIFT HIM UP IN A FIREMAN’S CARRY, HAVING SOME TREMBLE IN HIS KNEES! BUT ULTIMATELY HAS TERRY UP!
Eve: DEATH NOTE!
Deadprez: WAIT! TERRY SLIPS OFF THE SHOULDERS OF LIMMY, AND WHIPS HIM INTO THE CORNER, BUT MONAGHAN STOPS HIMSELF SHORT DUE TO THE REFEREE BEING THERE!
Eve: TERRY RUNS OFF THE ROPES, AND LIMMY TURNS RIGHT INTO THE RANDOM ACT OF VIOLENCE! COVER IS MADE!
Eve: MONAGHAN GETS THE SHOULDER UP!
Deadprez: Makes sense. The referee was a little slow to the cover there.
Gavin Kirkland: No, Limmy is just THAT good!
Eve: He’s kicked out of two of Terry’s best shots, and now Terry waits in the corner, wanting Limmy to get up once more. I’m guessing for another random act of violence.
Deadprez: If Terry hits this for a second time in a row, I don’t have many doubts that this one is over. Limmy’s back to his feet, and the charge ensues!
Eve: SILENT WHISPER VII!! THE SPINNING HEEL KICK TURNS TERRY AROUND, WHO DROPS TO BOTH KNEES, AND LIMMY STAGGERS BACK INTO THE CORNER, HARDLY ABLE TO STAND!
Deadprez: LIMMY HAS HIM IN THE CROSSHAIRS!
Eve: EMPIRE STATE OF MIND! THE SWINGING BACK ELBOW TO THE HEAD OF A KNEELING CHAMBERS! MONAGHAN SHOOTS THE HALF FOR A COVER!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Gina Romano: HERES YOUR WINNER…LIMMY MONAGHAN!!
(‘Dead or Lie’ by TRUSTRICK [english ver. by Jenny] blares throughout the arena, garnering a loud ovation from fans, and Limmy has his arm raised in victory while still lying on the canvas, exhausted.)
Gavin Kirkland: HE DID IT!
Eve; Tonight, Limmy knocked off a very game Terry Chambers, and did so on EAW’s biggest stage.
Deadprez: That’s nothing to scoff at, and you gotta wonder if the rumors will be true now, and Terry winds up walking away from the company.
Eve: Honestly, who knows? That’s Terry’s decision, but what we do know is that going into next season, one competitor to keep an eye out for is Limmy Monaghan, as if he wasn’t already.
(The camera cuts elsewhere on a shot of a victorious Limmy backpedaling up the ramp, holding his ribs. But outside the ring, Terry sat up against the barricade, upset he wasn’t able to get the win tonight.)
(The camera cuts to backstage where catering has been set up with the finest meals for all of the EAW wrestlers who aren’t booked for Pain for Pride. Many of them are shown crying as they receive texts from their family members and friends who no longer wish to speak to them after proving to be such disappointments.)
Professional Chef: Hey cheer up y’all. It will be alright. You may not be wrestling at Pain for Pride or really being booked at all. But at least you are still getting paid right! Not to mention we have for you the finest meals that money can buy. The EAW offices really splurged for Pain for Pride too. Not only do we have Taco Bell on hand… but we brought a special foreign surprise. Beans on white bread all the way from exotic England! Eat up you have earned it!
Failed Wrestler #1: :whoa:
???: Ohoho so it seems none of you have been booked unlike me? Quite interesting. Nobody would care if you all disappeared. I can’t risk having you all trying to compete with me for bookings. No I think that I will have to do something about that.
(A long sharp knife drops from the sleeve of his leather jacket as a smiling Hoodlum enters catering looking at the fearful men and women all around him.)
Hoodlum: Did you see my tape? That’s what I’m going to do to all of you. But I promise that you will be much better cooked than the food they are serving here tonight in catering. In fact maybe I will open up my own catering service here at EAW. I think that the wrestlers will find the food that I serve to be… quite delectable indeed! Ohoho!
(Hoodlum raises his knife in the air as he charges at the tables of eating wrestlers.)
Failed Wrestler #2: NO! AHHHH!!!
( https://media.tenor.com/1AhUNYnySx4AAAPo/f-bi-raid.mp4 )
Hoodlum: No. Not the police! Why are they here?
Police Officer: Hoodlum you are under arrest for serial manslaughter. We have evidence that links you to over a hundred missing persons on a trail all the way back to Toronto. Your serial killing spree is at an end! :ufdup:
Hoodlum: Oh you think so?
(Hoodlum raises the knife towards the police officer and charges in.)
Police Officer: Stop right there!
(The police officer fires a taser at Hoodlum who drops the knife and falls to the ground screaming and convulsing in pain.)
Hoodlum: Why? I did nothing wrong…
Police: Put the handcuffs on him. This man is a dangerous criminal. Why a sports organization like EAW would even hire someone like him is beyond me. He is going to be spending the rest of his life in prison for his crimes. The streets are much safer now he has been captured.
(Hoodlum is shown being loaded into a police car as it drives away.)
Failed Wrestler #3: Oh so now all of Hoodlum’s bookings need a replacement… So… :mjlit:
Professional Chef: Nah sit your ass down and eat your Taco Bell. You sure as hell ain’t replacing him.
(The camera fades to a commercial for EAW: Lotus starring Christian DeMarco and SKA.)
(“Your Turn” by Memphis Mayfire hits, as the crowd erupts into a mixed reaction. After a moment, both Theron Nikolas and Natasha Agnello step out onto the stage in black attire. They both look serious about this upcoming match, especially after Natasha was slapped across the face and humiliated by Cameron on Showdown. The two march down to the ring as this Pain for Pride crowd continues to be loud for this upcoming match.)
Gina Romano: The following contest is set for one fall!!! Introducing first.. He’s accompanied by Natasha Agnello.. From Edmunton, Alberta, Canada!!! Weighing in at 224lbs!!! GHOST!!! THERON NIKOLAS!!!!
Deadprez: The story of Theron Nikolas is something that expands over many levels. Theron was once the longest reigning Answers World Champion, and when he returned to EAW, he made his pressence known. However, it wasn’t quite enough as with each opportunity that came his way, he always seemed to come up short of what he wanted to accomplish. Multiple world title shots and failures have Theron in an entirely new mental state.
Gavin Kirkland: He’s gone on to claim the nickname “Ghost.” Labelled as such since the man we once knew of and who was in the past is now dead to him. With the help of Natasha Agnello, the old Theron is gone, and she is helping to reinvent him into something greater than ever before. Along the way, old comrades like Cameron Ella Ava have been cut off and after the events happening between these two involving run ins and interferences, this once comradery is now a boiling rivalry that will find its conclusion here tonight.
(Natasha Agnello is seen stepping out of the ring after giving Theron a quick pep talk in the center of the ring.)
(“I am not a Woman, I’m a God” by Halsey hits, as the crowd erupts into cheers. After a moment, Cameron Ella Ava steps up onto the stage in an all white attire. Strapped to her back is a set of Victoria Secret angel wings. She continues down the entrance ramp while raising her arms in the air elegantly. The crowd continues to cheer her on, as she stops at the end of the entrance ramp. She takes a moment, looks down at the ground, then raises her head up. She stretches out her arms, as the wings behind her back expand out. In an instant pyros begin to shoot out into air behind her making a beautiful scene on the screen for the viewers around the world. She then continues her way towards the ring.)
Gina Romano: And his opponent!!! From Los Angeles, California!!! Weighing in at 140lbs!!! THE GODDESS!!! CAMERON ELLA AVA!!!!
Deadprez: What a beautiful entrance by Cameron!!
Gavin Kirkland: Would be more beautiful if she decided to go blonde for a change if you ask me, but it was a nice sight. Could have spun around for a better look at that attire to be honest.
Eve: Okay Gavin… Don’t get yourself going now..
Deadprez: That’s right. The only thing that should be hard right now is the situation that Cameron Ella Ava has faced over these past few weeks. Theron has cost her matches, turned against her, and has made a friendship seem like nothing but wasted time.
Eve: Both of these individuals have lost opportunities, but it seems like Theron put some of the blame towards Cameron for not believing in him the way that Natasha has. These two have so much to prove towards one another, and seeing how they are both Hall of Famers trying to come back in their best form, Pain for Pride 15 is the perfect place for them to settle their differences once and for all!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Deadprez: There’s the bell and this matchup between two of EAW’s greatest talents ever is underway!
Gavin Kirkland: Two hall of famers facing off on the 15th anniversary of the greatest event on the planet! You have to love it!!
Deadprez: Both Cameron Ella Ava and Theron Nikolas meet in the center of the ring. It looks like Cameron is trying get some words out to Theron, trying to express herself to an old friend.
Gavin Kirkland: “Old Friend” is the best way to put it. After these past few months, their relationship has changed. Once friends now turned enemies. Theron being referred to as “Ghost” can also be a great way describe his past experiences with Cameron Ella Ava. That time working together and building a strong relationship with one another is now dead to Theron, but it seems Cameron wants to speak out on last time by telling him he’s falling too far!
Eve: I can’t fully hear what she’s saying in the ring, but obviously she’s letting Theron know that she wishes he never turned into the man that he has become with the help of Natasha Agnello.
(Cameron Ella Ava continues to express herself towards Theron Nikolas until he takes a step back. Nikolas looks over his shoulder and glances at Natasha Agnello who stands at ringside by his corner. Theron then turns his head and takes a step towards Cameron Ella Ava where the two of them lock eyes in the center of the ring.)
Deadprez: THERON JUST SLAPPED CAMERON RIGHT ACROSS THE FACE!! The respect for his former comrade is completely lost! It’s thrown out of the window, and he’s letting it be known!
Eve: If you look at the outside of the ring, Natasha is applauding Theron for striking Cameron across the face with the palm of his hand. Don’t forget that Cameron did the same thing to her on Showdown when she was trying to call out Theron. This may be seen as a little payback or what some would call an eye for an eye!
Gavin Kirkland: Cameron Ella Ava’s head was turned all the way off to the side after that slap across the face. She rubs her cheek that is now a vibrant red, and looks back over at Theron as her hair is brushed across her face..
Deadprez: AND THERON RUSHES HER AND SHOVES HER BACK AS SHE CRASHES SHOULDER FIRST INTO THE TURNBUCKLES AND CRASHES DOWN TO THE RING MAT!!
Theron Nikolas: (Off-Mic) YOU NEVER BELIEVED IN ME!! NATASHA DOES AND SHE’S HELPED MAKE ME GREATER THAN I COULD HAVE EVER IMAGINED!
Eve: Theron is now letting his voice be heard. He walks over to the downed Cameron Ella Ava. She tries to work up to her forearms.. BUT IT’S THERON NIKOLAS WHO KICKS HER RIGHT IN THE ABDOMEN!! She instantly lands flat onto her stomach, and it looks like Theron is taking control of this match early on.
Gavin Kirkland: The Ghost now reaches down and grabs Cameron by the head and hair. He attempts to bring her up to her feet, but as she gets up to one knee, it’s Cameron who tries to fight Theron off with right and left handed punches to the abdomen! ONE! TWO! THREE PUNCHES BY CAMERON ELLA AVA! Those punches force some separation between the two.. BUT THERON KEEPS A HOLD OF CAM’S HEAD AND BLASTS HER FACE WITH A POWERFUL KNEE STRIKE!!! ANOTHER!! AND ANOTHER!!
Deadprez: Cameron looks pretty groggy right now. That’s a lot of damage to the head, and she is definitely showing the effects as her body looks nearly limp while Theron keeps a hold of her by the head and hair. Theron continues to raise her up, as he’s got his opponent up to her feet. He grabs a hold of her wrist, and now he’s sending her to the other end of the ring with an irish whip!!
Eve: And here she goes!! Cameron Ella Ava gets sent across the ring, and hits the ropes on the other side!! She rebounds back towards Theron.. ROUNDHOUSE KICK BY THERON NIKOLAS!!!
Gavin Kirkland: NO!!! Cameron Ella Ava ducks underneath the leg, and continues running towards the far ropes, as Theron does a complete 360 degree spin!! Cam hits the ropes, and rebounds back from behind Theron!!! WONDER WOMAN PUNCH TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD!!!
Deadprez: NO!! THERON DUCKS UNDER THAT FOREARM SMASH, AS CAMERON ENDS UP RUNNING PAST HIM! She chops her feet and stops in place with Theron behind her.. SUPERKICK!!! CAMERON ELLA AVA WITH THE SUPERKICK!!!
Eve: AND IT CONNECTS!! That superkick caught Theron right in the jaw and had his head snap back!! He takes a few steps back after losing his balance for a moment! Cameron keeps it coming though, as she begins firing away with rapid kicks and punches! RIGHT HAND TO THE FACE!! LEFT TO THE ABDOMEN!! FOLLOWED BY A FRONT KICK TO THE ABDOMEN!! Cameron is putting the pressure on Theron, and rushing him with all of these strikes!! Theron is trying to block her strikes, but she is firing from every direction, using every limb she has.. HEEL KICK BY CAMERON AND THAT ONE STINGS, AS IT CATCHES THERON RIGHT IN THE RIB CAGE!!
Gavin Kirkland: Oh!! And Theron drops down to a knee after that heel kick from Cam! Cam now turns around and runs to the far ropes, she rebounds back.. AVACADABRA!!! THE SHINING WIZARD FROM CAMERON CONNECTS, AS SHE BLASTS HER BOOT ACROSS THE FACE OF THERON NIKOLAS!!
Eve: That shot drops Theron to the ring mat in an instant. He quickly realizes where he’s at however, as he rolls himself under the bottom rope, and gets himself down onto the ringside floor. Theron Nikolas is clutching at his head. After that shinning wizard kick from Cameron, I bet his head is ringing right about now.
Deadprez: But Theron understands that now is not the time to worry about that. This is Pain for Pride, and he needs to make his point proven against Cameron tonight. Theron raises his head and looks up at Cameron.. BUT WAIT IT’S THE AVA SISTER RUNNING TOWARDS HIM FROM INSIDE OF THE RING!! SUICIDE DIVE BY CAMERON ELLA AVA!!!
Gavin Kirkland: SPEAR!!! THERON NIKOLAS DROPPED HIS SHOULDER LOW, AS CAMERON ELLA AVA WAS DIVING TOWARDS HIM, THEN LUNGED OUT WITH HIS SHOULDER HITTING HER ABDOMEN AT FULL FORCE WITH THAT SPEAR!! NATASHA AGNELLO WAS ONCE ALONGSIDE MR. DEDEDE, SO IT’S ONLY FITTING A SPEAR HAS BEEN USED BY HER NEW PROJECT!! CAMERON IS DOWN HERE AT RINGSIDE CLUTCHING AT HER MIDSECTION, AS THERON GETS UP TO HIS FEET!!
Eve: Cameron Ella Ava has her hands wrapped around her midsection, but is slowly working her way up to her feet.. But from behind, it’s Theron with a nasty forearm to the back of the head!! Cameron drops down to one knee, but ends up getting caught in what looks like a full nelson hold from behind by Theron!! What is Nikolas thinking of doing right now!?! This does not look good for Cameron!! DRAGON RUSH!!! SNAP DRAGON SUPLEX BY THERON NIKOLAS!!!
Deadprez: IT CONNECTS!! That suplex sends Cameron back, as she lands hard against the thinly padded ringside floor!
Referee: One.. Two.. Three.. Four..
Gavin Kirkland: The referee has gotten up to the count of four, and it looks like Theron wants to keep this match on the outside for a bit. He rolls himself into the ring, then instantly right back out of the ring to restart the referee’s count. Meanwhile, Cameron has scooted herself right up to the corner of the barricade. She works herself up to her feet while leaning up against the barricade and.. YAZUKA KICK BY THERON NIKOLAS ONTO CAMERON WHO’S LEANED UP AGAINST THE BARRICADE!!
Deadprez: NO!! CAMERON DUCKS UNDERNEATH THE LEG, AS THERON’S BOOT GOES OVER THE BARRICADE!! HIS RIGHT LEG HANGS OVER, AND IS ON THE SIDE WITH THE CROWD WHILE HIS LEFT STAYS PLANTED ONTO THE RINGSIDE FLOOR!!
Eve: Cameron takes a few steps back, as Theron hunches over with both of his legs on either side of the barricade.. Cameron charges in.. IN EXCELSIS!!! RUNNING BICYCLE KNEE STRIKE BY CAMERON ELLA AVA!!!
Deadprez: IT CONNECTS!! IT CONNECTS!! THERON NIKOLAS JUST GOT NAILED IN THE HEAD BY THAT BICYCLE KNEE STRIKE, AND ENDS UP FALLING OVER THE BARRICADE, LANDING HARD ONTO FLOOR ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE BARRICADE!! HE’S NOW IN THE CROWD WITH THE FANS AFTER THAT BEAUTIFUL RUNNING KNEE STRIKE BY CAMERON!!
Referee: One.. Two.. Three.. Four..
Gavin Kirkland: And what is this right here? Cameron walks over to the barricade and climbs up on top of it! She has her feet set, as she looks down at Theron!! She turns her back towards him and.. DIVING CORKSCREW MOONSAULT BY CAMERON ELLA AVA!!!!!
Deadprez: NO!!! NO!!! NO!!! THERON ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY, AS CAMERON SMACKS HER HEAD AND CHEST UP AGAINST THE CONCRETE FLOOR!! Don’t forget. The padding that you see at ringside is only at ringside. We don’t normally expect the right to take it’s way into the crowd, but now that it has, Cameron is feeling the consequences!!
Referee: Five.. Six..
Eve: Theron Nikolas now rises up to his feet. He looks over his shoulder and sees Cameron clutching at her face and body in pain after that failed moonsault, and he can’t help but smile and laugh at the entire situation she just put herself through. Theron now makes his way over the barricade, as he begins to make his way back towards the ring.
Crowd: (Off-Mic) CAM-ER-ON!! CAM-ER-ON!!! CAM-ER-ON!!!
Deadprez: Theron stops his walk back to the ring, as he begins to hear these “Cameron” chants coming from the crowd. They begin to cheer even loud with excitement, as Theron turns his head.. AND LOOK!!! There are fans helping Cameron up to her feet!! Dozens of fans are surrounding the Ava Sister, as she stands tall with the crowd right with her!!
Gavin Kirkland: Cameron now begins to make her way back over that barricade as.. THERON NIKOLAS JUST RAN BACK, GRABBED HER BY THE HEAD FROM RINGSIDE, AND BASHED IT DOWN ONTO THE BARRICADE!! He then keeps a hold of the back of her head and neck.. AND HE TOSSES HER BACK OVER THE BARRICADE AND ONTO THE THINLY PADDED RINGSIDE FLOOR!!!
Referee: Seven.. Eight..
Deadprez: Theron now reaches down and grabs Cameron. He gets her up to her feet, and walks her over to the ring. Theron then slides his opponent back into the ring, as he follows shortly after, and covers her for the pin!!
Eve: And there’s the kickout by Cameron!! It’s going to take a lot more than that to finish off this Hall of Famer!
Deadprez: Theron Nikolas rises back up to his feet now, as he knows he has control of this match once again. He made one little mistake earlier with that missed Yazuka kick, but now he’s back in the driver’s seat fully. Theron reaches down and grabs Cameron. He gets her up to her feet, and wraps his arm around her neck and shoulder.. What’s this!?!? SPINNING URANAGE SIDE SLAM BY THERON NIKOLAS!!! WOW!!! WHAT A MOVE BY GHOST!! THE BACK OF CAMERON’S HEAD AND BODY JUST SLAMMED AGAINST THE CANVAS OF THE RING WITH THAT MOVE THERE!! A move like that will knock the wind right out of you. Being spun at that speed, then for the spin to come to an immediate halt once you crash against the ring mat is not a fun experience that’s for sure!
Eve: Theron Nikolas walks around the downed body of Cameron, but it looks like Natasha wants him back on the attack. She’s signaling something from ringside, and trying to keep him locked in on the task at hand. Remember, it’s Natasha who wants to help Theron become greater than ever. She’s got him on the right path, so the trust that he has in her judgment is there.
Gavin Kirkland: Theron Nikolas now reaches down and grabs Cameron by the wrists.. And whats this!?! HE BEGINS STOMPING DOWN ONTO THE HEAD AND FACE OF CAMERON ELLA AVA!! OVER AND OVER AGAIN!!! ONE!! TWO!! THREE!! FOUR!! FIVE!! SIX!! SEVEN!! EIGHT STOMPS!! EIGHT STOMPS TO THE HEAD!!!! Theron now releases the wrists of Cameron, as she falls back against the canvas of the ring!!
Deadprez: AND LOOK!! SHE WAS BUSTED OPEN!! THERE’S A HUGE OPEN WOUND ON THE FOREHEAD OF CAMERON!! Blood begins to rush down her face, and drips down onto the ringmat!! If she doesn’t move soon, she’ll be laying in a pool of her own blood the way that open wound looks!!
Gavin Kirkland: A little blood doesn’t scare Theron though. Especially when the blood he sees is his opponents. Theron goes right back on the attack, as he kicks Cameron over, forcing her to lay with her stomach against the ring mat. Cameron clutches at her midsection, and works to her hands and knees. However, whatever Cameron is trying to do, Theron Nikolas has other plans! He steps off to the side and wraps his arms around her body!! HE DEADLIFTS HER UP INTO A POWERBOMB POSITION!! DEADLIFT SITOUT GUTWRENCH POWERBOMB!!!
Deadprez: NO!!! CAMERON ELLA AVA WITH THE CREATIVE COUNTER!! SHE USED THE BLOOD DRIPPING ON HER FACE AND BLINDED THERON WITH IT, BY RUBBING IT INTO HIS EYES WHILE HE HOLDS HER IN THE POWERBOMB POSITION!! HER HANDS AND FACE ARE BLOODY, BUT THERON CAN’T SEE!!
Eve: Cameron has a leg on both sides of his head, as Theron is still standing up while holding Cameron up in that powerbomb position!! RIGHT HAND BY CAMERON!! NOW A LEFT!!! A RIGHT!! A LEFT!! RIGHT! LEFT! RIGHT LEFT!! Cameron is pelting Theron with these punches, as he begins to stumble back!! Cameron continues punching at her opponent until he backs into the corner turnbuckles!
Deadprez: Now that they are in the corner, Cameron steps over, and gets from out of the powerbomb position, and onto the top rope! She has herself positioned in the corner, as she kicks Theron in the back of the head, and shoves him a few feet away from the turnbuckle with her boot!! Theron slowly turns around, still blinded by the blood that Cameron put into his eyes.. AND CAMERON GOES FOR A DIVING METEORA RIGHT INTO THE FACE OF THERON NIKOLAS!!! SHE PINS HIS HEAD TO THE MAT IN AN INSTANT, AND COVERS FOR THE PIN!!!
Gavin Kirkland: KICKOUT BY THERON NIKOLAS!!!
Deadprez: That was a close one right there! The bleeding seems to have slowed down, however, Cameron Ella Ava isn’t worried about the bruises and scars she’s taking in this match. She wants to walk out with the victory and put Theron in his place. He’s got her blood stained onto him.
Gavin Kirkland: What was once a close relationship. A relationship that we could say was as close to a blood relationship as you can get proves that even if you’re blood, that doesn’t mean that you automatically relate. Ties break apart. Tears shed. Blood drips. And this visual we are getting of Cameron rising to her feet with her blood spread upon her and Theron shows exactly how deep this match truly is. The blood of an individual who was once thought of as a close friend is now used against him. But he put himself in this position.
Eve: The match isn’t over yet, Gavin, but who would have thought that we would be here right now? 6 months ago, we would have never expected things to turn out like this, but now here we are, watching Cameron wipe the blood off of her face as she brushes her hair back with her fingertips that are also stained as a vibrant red.
Deadprez: She’s trying to win this match, as she stares directly at Theron Nikolas who is slowly working his way up to his hands and knees. Cameron walks her way over to Theron and.. SHE KICKS HIM RIGHT AT THE SIDE OF THE ARM!! Theron drops back down to the mat, but Cameron quickly grabs at the right arm that she just kicked! She pulls and bends it into a hammerlock position on his back and… SHE STOMPS RIGHT DOWN ONTO THE ELBOW JOINT!!! SHE KEEPS HIS ARM ON HIS BACK AND STOMPS AGAIN!! CAMERON IS YELLING OUT AND MAKINT IT KNOWN SHE INTENDS ON WALKING OUT VICTORIOUS!! ONE MORE TIME BY CAMERON!! THIS TIME SHE DROPS HER KNEE RIGHT DOWN ONTO HIS ELBOW, AND THERON YELPS OUT IN PAIN!!!
Gavin Kirkland: The shock that has to be brought to the body after that one :lupe:. Having a person stomp down onto your joint while it’s in that position not only hurts the elbow joint, but it pulls back and stretches on the right shoulder as well!
Deadprez: Theron is definitely the stronger of the two, so Cameron targeting that arm of his can be seen as a great strategy as this match continues on. Take away the strengths he has against you. Obviously she knows what she’s doing. She’s a hall of famer and showing those Hall of Fame Tendencies here at the grandest stage of them all!!
Eve: The arm is most definitely the target for Cameron. That is no longer a question since shes dropped down to the mat, and adjusted her grip on that arm. It looks like.. SHE’S LOCKED IN A FUJIWARA ARM BAR!! SHE’S PULLING BACK ON THAT ARM, APPLYING PRESSURE ON THAT HURT ELBOW, WHILE STRETCHING THE RIGHT SHOULDER OF THERON NIKOLAS!!!
Deadprez: THERON IS YELLING OUT IN PAIN, AND TRYING TO GET TO THE ROPES, BUT HE’S IN THE CENTER OF THE RING, AND NOWHERE NEAR GETTING A ROPE BREAK!! CAMERON CONTINUES TO TUG AND PULL ON THAT ARM, AS THERON KICKS AND FLAILS HIS LEGS IN TREMENDOUS PAIN!!!
Gavin Kirkland: She just.. SHE JUST TRANSITIONED HERSELF INTO A.. A TRIANGLE CHOKEHOLD!!! CAMERON HAS THERON LOCKED IN A TRIANGLE CHOKE!!! HE’S MOVING HIS ARMS FRANTICALLY AND TRYING TO BREATHE, BUT CAMERON CONTINUES TO APPLY PRESSURE ON THE HEAD AND THROAT OF THERON WITH THIS SUBMISSION!!!
Deadprez: CAMERON ELLA AVA IS SQUEEZING THE LIFE OUT OF THERON!!! SHE’S DOING EVERYTHING THAT SHE CAN TO PUT THIS ONE AWAY!!! THERON’S ARMS BEGIN TO SLOW DOWN!! THEY’RE DROPPING DOWN SLOWLY!!! THE REFEREE HAS TO GET INVOLVED!!!
(The referee is seen inspecting the situation, and decides to raise Theron’s left arm in the air while Ghost is still locked up in that submission. The referee then releases the arm, as it drops in an instant.)
Deadprez: I don’t think the referee is fully convinced this match should stop though, as Theron is still breathing and twitching at his fingers. However, I don’t know how long Theron can continue in this position!! Cameron is looking to end this match right here! The referee signals that he’s going to give this one more shot before he calls it!
(The referee reaches the twitching arm again, and raises it in the air. He then releases the arm..)
Gavin Kirkland: :blessed:
Deadprez: THERON STOPS HIS ARM FROM DROPPING AND CLENCHES A FIST!!! HE THEN USES THAT FIST TO THROW A RIGHT HOOK ONTO THE SIDE OF CAMERON!! ANOTHER!!! AND ANOTHER!!! Theron Nikolas now grips onto the hips of Cameron, and works his way up to his feet while still being choked by this Triangle submission hold!! What is he thinking here?!
Eve: HE’S LIFTING CAMERON FROM OFF OF THE MAT!!! HE RAISES HER HIGH IN THE AIR IN WHAT LOOKS LIKE A POWERBOMB POSITION!! SHE STILL HAS THE TRIANGLE CHOKEHOLD LOCKED IN, BUT…
Gavin Kirkland: THERON SLAMS HER DOWN ONTO THE CANVAS OF THE RING WITH A SITOUT POWERBOMB!!! THE SOUND OF CAMERON’S BODY CRASHING DOWN ONTO THE RING MAT ECHOES THROUGHOUT THIS ARENA!!! THERON HOOKS THE LEGS!!!
Deadprez: NO!!! CAMERON GOT HER SHOULDER UP JUST IN TIME!!!
Eve: Both of these Elitists look absolutely exhausted and drained. Theron rolls over and onto his forearms, as we can see him breathing heavily. Meanwhile, Cameron is slowly sitting up, and using the ropes to get herself up to her feet!
Gavin Kirkland: Theron is slowly working his way up, as now he’s standing!! Cameron makes it to her feet soon after..
Deadprez: HEADHUNTER!!!!! THERON JUST BLASTED CAMERON IN THE FACE WITH THE HEADHUNTER!!!!! THE BUSAIKU KNEE STRIKE KNOCKS HER BACK DOWN TO THE CANVAS OF THE RING IN AN INSTANT, AND THERON DROPS DOWN FOR THE PIN ONCE AGAIN!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: NO!!! CAMERON ELLA AVA WITH THE ROPE BREAK!!! SHE GOT HER FOOT ON THE BOTTOM ROPE JUST IN TIME!!! THIS MATCH CONTINUES!!!!!!
Eve: Theron can be seen hitting the canvas of the ring with his fists. He thought he had this match won right there. He’s starting to lose his cool, but look!! From the outside!! It’s Natasha Agnello!!!
(We see Natasha Agnello speaking to Theron Nikolas from ringside, trying to calm him down. She points up to the top turnbuckle, as he looks directly at the corner, then back down to Cameron with a sadistic smile on his face.)
Deadprez: This does not look good for Cameron Ella Ava. Not a single bit! Theron grabs her by the arms and drags her body towards the center of the ring. From there, Theron is making his way over to the corner where he scales his way up to the top rope…. FIVE STAR FROG SPLASH FROM THERON NIKOLAS!!!!!!
Deadprez: :damn: :damn:
Gavin Kirkland: He missed :damn:
Deadprez: You got that right! Cameron Ella Ava moved out of the way at the last possible moment, and evaded that Frog Splash!! If that would have connected, that may have been the dagger to this match!! The final nail in the coffin!! But no!! Cameron Ella Ava had other plans!!
Eve: Cameron now works her way up to her feet slowly. She’s looking down at Theron, who is clutching at his midsection in pain after that 5 star Frog Splash.
Gavin Kirkland: I give it a 1 star only because of the effort.
Gavin Kirkland: :atrickboo:
Eve: Cameron is getting herself in position, as she awaits Theron to get to his feet but-
(Natasha Agnello steps up onto the ring apron. This catches Cameron’s attention, as she turns around and faces her.)
Eve: Both of these women are going back and forth right now. Verbally attacking one another. Cameron surely had quite the words to say to Natasha on Showdown, but now it’s reaching an all time high, as they are now face to face talking their trash towards each other!!!
Deadprez: Wait a second!!! What’s this?!
Gavin Kirkland: Cameron turns around…
Deadprez: SPEAR!!! SPEAR BY THERON NIKOLAS!!!!!!!
Eve: NO!!! CAMERON SIDE STEPPED OUT OF THE WAY, AND USED THERON NIKOLAS’ MOMENTUM TO SHOVE HIM THROUGH THE ROPES AND… HE SPEARS NATASHA RIGHT OFF OF THE RING APRON, AS BOTH THERON AND NATASHA ARE DOWN ON THE RINGSIDE FLOOR!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: Theron slowly gets up from the ground on the outside of the ring! He’s trying to help Natasha up! He knows that he screwed up and his concern is quite evident! He’s freaking out at the situation, knowing that he just speared his manager!!!!
Deadprez: BUT LOOK!!! INSIDE THE RING, ITS CAMERON ELLA AVA WITH A TOPE CON HILO!!! SHE JUST LAUNCHED HERSELF OVER THE TOP ROPE AND CRASHED DOWN ONTO THE BODIES OF THERON NIKOLAS AND NATASHA AGNELLO!!!!
Eve: Bodies are everywhere, and Cameron’s blood is spread onto three different bodies here at ringside!!!
Gavin Kirkland: Cameron slowly works her way up to her feet. She’s tired, she’s exhausted, but she’s fighting this match until the very end!! Cameron reaches down and grabs Theron Nikolas by the head and hair. She raises him up to his feet, and slides him back into the ring using whatever strength she has left!!! Cameron then follows into the ring and covers Theron for the pin!!!
Deadprez: NO!!! THERON KICKS OUT!!! THERON KICKS OUT!!!!
Eve: Cameron can’t believe it. She’s put everything into this moment so that she could walk out victorious, but Theron will not die here tonight!!!
Gavin Kirkland: Cameron Ella Ava now gets to her feet as the blood from her forehead begins to drip down once again. Splatters of blood begin to hit the mat once more, as she sets herself up. It looks like she wants to go for her Goddess Rising Ace Kick.. BUT LOOK!!! It’s Natasha!!! She’s gotten herself up onto the apron once again!!!
Natasha Agnello: (off-Mic) DO YOU REALLY THINK YOU CAN GET THE BEST OF US?!?
(Cameron Ella Ava turns around and focuses her attention on Natasha who is still yelling out at her. Natasha is sore and hurting from the events from earlier, but that doesn’t mean she can’t speak her mind.)
Cameron Ella Ava: (Off-Mic) YOU AND YOUR WORDS DON’T CONCERN ME!! THIS IS BETWEEN ME AND THERON!!!
Natasha Agnello: (Off-Mic) I hate to break it to you, but you’re cut off!!! Theron doesn’t care about the friendship or bond you both once had!!! He doesn’t care that you’re an Ava!!! To him, you don’t mean jack shi-
Deadprez: CAM JUST WIPED THE BLOOD ONTO THE PALM OF HER HAND AND SLAPPED NATASHA RIGHT ACROSS THE FACE!!! NATASHA NOW HAS A RED HANDPRINT ON HER FACE, AS SHE DROPS DOWN TO A KNEE ON THE RING APRON!!!
Eve: Natasha rises back up to her feet…
Gavin Kirkland: BUT CAMERON SHOVES NATASHA OFF OF THE RING APRON, AND SENDS HER DOWN TO THE RINGSIDE FLOOR!!!
Deadprez: Cameron now turns around and faces Theron Nikolas who is down on one knee!!! CAMERON IS GOING TO DO IT RIGHT HERE!!! THE FINAL NAIL IN THE COFFIN!!! SHE CHARGES IN!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: GODDESS RISING!!! STEP UP AXE KICK BY CAMERON ELLA AVA!!!!
Deadprez: NO!!!! THERON COUNTERS AND CATCHES HER AS SHE WAS RUNNING WITH THE GHOST’S REQUIEM!!!! THE SWINGING REVERSE STO CONNECTS AS CAMERON IS OUT COLD HERE IN THE CENTER OF THE RING!!!! Theron drops down and goes for the pin covering the far leg and pulling back!!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“Your Turn,” by Memphis Mayfire hits, as the crowd erupts into a mixed reaction filled with mostly boos due to how the finish turned out. However, this victory does nothing but put a smile on Theron’s face, as he rises up and gets his hand raised by the referee.)
Gina Romano: Here is your winner!!! “GHOST” THERON NIKOLAS!!!!!!!!
Deadprez: What a match between two Hall of Famers here on night one. Neither one wanted to fail here tonight, and after a season of shortcomings, I’m sure this felt great for Theron Nikolas.
Gavin Kirkland: No doubt. And to finish on top at the grandest stage of them all puts an exclamation mark on this season for Theron. We may not all be a fan of Natasha, but she played a major part in this rivalry between Theron and Cameron.. And ultimately, her distraction is what led Theron to victory here.
Eve: Cameron put up a great fight as well, but there’s only so much you can do when another individual gets involved. She fought her heart out and did everything that she could, but tonight simply wasn’t her night.
(The screen shows Theron Nikolas helping Natasha Agnello up to her feet, and walking her around the ring, and back up the entrance ramp. They both are stained with Cameron’s blood, as they walk backwards, staring at the victim they left down in the ring. Cameron is still out of it with blood on her body. Meanwhile, the last thing we see is Theron Nikolas and Natasha with their arms raised in the air while laughing at a stirring Cameron Ella Ava slowly sitting, who is being checked by the referee, seething. The screen then fades to black.)
(The camera fades in to Stephie Love in the ring.)
Stephie Love: The following contest is scheduled for one fall!
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!
Stephie Love: And it is for the EAW Unified Tag Team Championships!!!
Crowd: :blessed: !!!!!
Stephie Love: Introducing first the challengers…
(The lighting in the Stadium would turn into an icy blue colour, as the Camera would slowly zone in onto the Stage. From there, the Titantron would turn on, as a dimly lit room can be seen. In what appears to be a prerecorded room, wearing a suit, and a suitcase in hand, Ice Aces Member, ARIA, would appear in front of the Camera.)
ARIA: Tonight, right now, on the biggest show of the year for Elite Answers Wrestling, Pain For Pride 15, you will witness two Women go down to that Ring, and give all of you a show. They will leave everything down there, for one opportunity. To win. To become the Unified Tag Team Champions.
(ARIA would place the suitcase down onto the table in front of her, as she would cross her arms, smirking as she looks straight into the Camera.)
ARIA: In June of 2021, you witnessed the debut of The Amazing Girl. You witnessed the debut of one of the nicest people in Elite Answers Wrestling, but someone who is willing to leave absolutely everything in the middle of that Ring to be known as one of the best. She is from Okinawa, Japan, and tonight, you will know her as one half of the Unified Tag Team Champions. She is…Ayu Megumi!
(A spotlight would then shine down on the left side of the Stage, as wearing an all white and gold Attire, and with a sword in her hand would be seen Ayu Megumi. She gets up to her feet and would spin around, swinging the sword as she hits it against the stage and poses. The Camera focuses in once again on ARIA.)
ARIA: And four Months later, November of 2021, you witnessed the debut of The Cryptic Ace. Ayu’s partner in crime, Ayu’s childhood Best Friend, Ayu’s Girlfriend. She stepped into Elite Answers Wrestling, and she immediately proved that she belonged here. She is willing to do whatever it takes to win. She resides from Okinawa, Japan, and tonight, you will know her as the other half of the Unified Tag Team Championships. She is…Usagi Senshi!
(A spotlight would then shine down on the right side of the Stage, as also wearing an all white and gold Attire, and with an umbrella in her hand would be seen Usagi Senshi. She twists and twirls the umbrella around, hysterically laughing as she would then drape it over her shoulder. From there, Usagi Senshi and Ayu Megumi would turn towards each other, they nod, as they begin walking towards each other.)
ARIA: Together? They are The Ice Aces.
(ARIA shrugs and smiles, as Usagi and Ayu meet each other right in the center of the Stage. They would then turn towards the rampway, as they let out deep breaths, the Camera focuses in on ARIA on the Titantron one more time.)
ARIA: Tonight, right now, on the biggest show of the year for Elite Answers Wrestling, Pain For Pride 15, you will witness The Ice Aces do whatever it takes to win. They will leave it all in the Ring, they will fight, and they will fight forever, and at the end of the night, The Ice Aces will be the Unified Tag Team Championships. And why? Well…because The Ice Aces are…
(ARIA would slowly unlock and unhook the suitcase, as she would then slowly open it, as seen in the suitcase…is an Ice Crystal, placed right in the center.)
ARIA: Forever Alive!
Crowd: FOREVER ALIVE!!! :blessed: !!!!!!
(ARIA walks away into the darkness, the Titantron slowly turning off. The lights would turn off, before blinking between blue and white, as ‘Kimarigoto’ by BRATS hits!!!)
Flannery McCoy: Here come the challengers! The Ice Aces who have won the hearts of every fan here in attendance! Everyone loves them!
Jake Mercer: And I love you. But even I am hyped at the possibility of these two sensations from Japan winning the gold here tonight. The crowd is firmly behind them and they are on a mission to make the EAW tag division great again!
Stew-O: They could definitely do it. They have all the momentum in the world. They look and act like true champions and I think I speak for everyone when I say we are sick of the Off-Brand Amphetamines shit and want a change here tonight.
(A&D by YNL Jordan hits to loud boos from the crowd.)
Stephie Love: And their opponents at a combined weight of 476 pounds they are the team of Solomon Stane and Kirk Redwood… THEY ARE THE EAW UNIFIED TAG TEAM HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONS OF THE WORLD… THE OFF-BRAND AMPHETTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTAMINESSSS!!!
(The Off-Brand Amphetamines make their way out to the ring followed by Trixie Stane. Trixie pours shots for the champions which they toast to each other before downing the shots and making their way to the ring.)
Jake Mercer: These drunks are the champions really? I thought EAW promoted a straight-edge no alcohol culture? What the hell is wrong with them?
Flannery McCoy: :whoa: Calm down Jake. Nothing wrong with a little pre-match preparation. I know I did exactly the same before starting the show tonight. Don’t tell my boss. Anyway these are the champs and they can do whatever the hell they want but that clearly doesn’t sit well with our fans.
Stew-O: The fans are tired of the Off-Brand Amphetamines ruining everyone’s fun here in EAW. It is time for a change! It’s time for the Ice Aces to win the gold! :blessed:
(DING! DING! DING!)
Flannery McCoy: We are underway and the titles are indeed on the line. It seems that Kirk Redwood and Ayu Megumi will be starting things off here tonight. It will be interesting to see how this match goes considering the differences between competitors. Wait no! Solomon Stane is in the ring and assaults Usagi Senshi from behind before she can leave the ring! Redwood strikes on Megumi as well! The champs getting in a quick attack from behind as all four competitors are battling it out in the ring and all hell has broken loose!
Stew-O: Well that didn’t take long to lose control. Hopefully this doesn’t result in a disqualification because these Pain for Pride fans deserve a resolution to this match they paid a lot of money to see. Solomon Stane and Kirk Redwood hammering away at Ayu Megumi and Usagi Senshi and the two Amphetamines are brutalizing these two Aces. BIG BOOT TO THE FACE FROM SOLOMON KICKS USAGI’S HEAD OFF! DOWN GOES USAGI! But Ayu is battling back against Kirk punching him back into the corner! But wait Solomon grabs her from behind! Hard shots to the gut! Solomon and Kirk have Ayu trapped in the corner and they are going in. Hard gut punches from both competitors as Solomon finally leaves the ring as Usagi rolls out in pain holding her head from that kick.
Jake Mercer: We are back to two competitors in the ring but The Off-Brand Amphetamines have Ayu Megumi trapped in their corner and Kirk Redwood is taking advantage of that beating the shit out of her intensely. Look at Solomon holding Megumi’s arms back allowing Kirk to just punch away at her defenseless self in the corner. The referee should do something about this! I can’t imagine this is the way the Ice Aces wanted to start out their big Pain for Pride title match! They are being beaten down worse than an innocent millionaire who made a racist joke on Twitter.
Flannery McCoy: :mjpls:But anyway the tag is made in to Solomon Stane who lumbers into the ring and begins kicking at Ayu Megumi in the corner. Ayu really taking a beating from these two who are showing why they are the champions in the first place. The Off-Brand Amphetamines are really on here tonight. :mjgrin:
Stew-O: Don’t do that again. Solomon Stane whips Ayu Megumi hard across the ring into the opposite corner before charging in with a Running Splash!!! But Ayu moves out of the way and Solomon goes chest first into the turnbuckle! Solomon falls out of the corner as Ayu charges in with a thunderous Lariatoo!!! Solomon actually goes down from the force! Usagi Senshi now back up on the ropes and she is cheering on her partner! But here comes Kirk Redwood back into the ring! But Megumi hits him with a Running Dropkick sending him flying over the top rope to the outside! Ayu has been energized by Usagi’s support and is firing on all cyllinders now! Ayu leaps off the middle rope with a Flying Elbow Drop down on the chest of Solomon as she goes for the first cover of this match!
Jake Mercer: But Solomon Stane kicks out with authority causing Ayu Megumi to do a triple flip in midair before landing hard on her back from the force. Megumi back up as she quickly and smartly makes the tag in to Usagi Senshi who enters the ring. Good idea to get out while you have a chance. Usagi now sizing up Solomon and wondering how to deal with this bozo.
Flannery McCoy: Usagi Senshi with a hard kick to the gut of Solomon Stane who grabs his leg in pain before Kirk Redwood slaps him on the shoulder. I guess Redwood really wants a piece of Usagi! Redwood in the ring now and charges in full speed with a Shoulder Tackle knocking Usagi back into the corner. But Usagi leaps up to the middle rope and up and over Redwood rolling away from him into the ring. Redwood into the corner as Usagi drives herself into him with repeated Spears into the corner trying to do some damage. Redwood shoves her away trying to get her assault to end. SPEAR! But Redwood moves out of the way! But Usagi with the agility to spin herself up and around the turnbuckle and spins around the pole up to the top rope! I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything like that! USAGI OFF THE TOP WITH A FLYING CROSSBODY!!! SHE COMES CRASHING DOWN ON REDWOOD!! THE COVER!!!
Referee: ONNNNNNNNNNNNNNEEEEEEEE!!! TW-
Stew-O: But the kickout from Kirk Redwood! No new champs yet here tonight but the Ice Aces refuse to give up! Kirk pulls himself up in the corner but Usagi Senshi is waiting for him.
Jake Mercer: Usagi Senshi with the hard back elbows causing Kirk Redwood to back the hell off but Redwood right back in. Usagi manages to turn herself around but now Redwood lighting her up with repeated kicks to the gut changing leg with each kick. Usagi ducks between the ropes as Redwood continues to kick but the referee is forced to intervene to break the whole thing up and force her backwards into the ring.
Referee: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FIVE! THAT’S ENOUGH!
Flannery McCoy: Kirk Redwood eventually stops the assault before grabbing the leg of Usagi Senshi! But she kicks his hand away! Usagi whips Redwood around into the opposite corner as Usagi follows him slamming into him with a vicious Running Wheel Kick into the corner. Usagi punching on Redwood who somehow manages to stay on his feet but Redwood with a hard Big Boot to the face kicks Usagi away from him. Redwood props himself up on the middle rope… Flying Axe Handle to the face! But Usagi cartwheels out of the way! But Redwood dodges a Running Enzuigiri from Usagi who crashes and Burns on the mat. Redwood leaps through the air coming down to flatten Usagi like a pancake.
Jake Mercer: Did you know that Usagi means pancake in Japanese? It’s a true story!
Stew-O: It’s not a true story but this could truly be the end of the match as Kirk Redwood goes in for the cover on Usagi Senshi!!!
Flannery McCoy: Usagi Senshi kicks out and now Kirk Redwood looks pissed off as he traps her in a Camel Clutch. This hold looks quite devastating and Usagi may have to quit here and now giving up on all her dreams and title ambitions.
Ayu Megumi: No Usagi! Hang in there! I believe in you! <3
Stew-O: Ayu Megumi’s words give Usagi Senshi the strength she needs to break free of the hold! Usagi with unbelievable strength as she powers out and begins hammering away at the face of Kirk Redwood! Redwood is shook! She grabs him by the hair and bashes his head repeatedly into the turnbuckle! Usagi has snapped and she kicks at Redwood knocking him down in the corner! Usagi now stomping a mudhole in his ass as Redwood is being subjected to the same torture he put Megumi through earlier! Ayu gets a cheap shot in from the outside as she slaps the shit out of Redwood! Redwood rolls out to the middle of the ring and he is deceased! Usagi up to the top rope!!! A FLYING HEADBUTT FROM THE TOP CONNECTS!!! The cover from Usagi!!!
Jake Mercer: Kickout by Kirk Redwood! The champs stay alive up in here. It looks like they won’t be giving up them titles that easily! Usagi Senshi tosses Redwood into the corner trapping her alongside her Ice Aces partner. Megumi getting in all kinds of illegal interference from the outside and she does not seem to give a damn. The titles are here tonight. This is Pain for Pride you have to go all out! Hard chop to the chest with one hand from Usagi which echoes throughout the entire arena! Shit sounded like a gunshot I almost had to pull out my piece in defense! Hard punches now raining down on Redwood in the corner as the referee prevents Solomon Stane from entering the ring to save his partner! But Ayu is double teaming Redwood and the bias from this referee is out of hand!
Referee: Come on guys that’s not appropriate. Let’s have a fair and balanced match here tonight. Do it for the fans.
(Ayu Megumi looks out at the fans and settles on a small child who looks on with tears in her eyes and disappointment causing Ayu to feel much shame for her actions.)
Ayu Megumi: You are right. I apologize. It won’t happen again. :mjcry:
Referee: Good. It better not ho. :ufudup:
Flannery McCoy: Usagi Senshi now taking a well deserved breather in the ring as she applies a rest hold on Kirk Redwood. But Redwood powers up to his feet and throws Usagi hard across the ring into the corner! Usagi goes over the top rope crashing to the outside! But as she flew over the top rope Ayu Megumi made the tag! Megumi leaps up to the top rope!! SPRINGBOARD DROPKICK INTO THE RING AS MEGUMI TAKES TO THE SKIES!!! Redwood is thrown across the ring as he nearly falls under the bottom rope but instead reaches his arm up to make the tag in to Solomon Stane!
Stew-O: NO! Ayu Megumi kicks the hand of Solomon Stane away preventing the tag! Megumi drags the leg of Kirk Redwood back into the Ice Aces corner and applies a Figure 4 Leglock! Ayu just may make Kirk tap out here tonight! That thing is locked in and there is no escap-
Jake Mercer: But Solomon Stane enters the ring and hits a Running Senton crashing down on top of Ayu Megumi! Holy shit he fucking crushed her! The referee ordering Solomon out of the ring but the damage has been done and the damage is severe! Kirk Redwood with a smile on his face as he drops a knee down on the face of Ayu. Kirk repeatedly smashes his knee into her face and she has been busted wide open! The blood flowing down the face of Ayu will scar the memories of her fans for years to come! Kirk Redwood lifts Ayu up and drops her with a Sit Down Powerbomb! The cover!
Jake Mercer: CHAMPS RETAIN!!! SGIOSPGJPSGJPSGJS!!!
Flannery McCoy: No they don’t! Ayu Megumi with the kickout! The will to survive is too strong! Kirk Redwood now making the tag in to Solomon Stane who enters the ring legally this time. Solomon immediately applies a Dragon Sleeper casually on Ayu. Just a lil dragon sleeper no biggie. Ayu passes out and she is unconscious! The match is over! No wait! Usagi Senshi off the top rope with a Flying Spinning Crossbody comes down to land on top of Solomon Stane! These two teams have stopped giving a single fuck about interference and are just going off! Here comes Kirk Redwood! He charges across the ring and hits a Cactus Clothesline on Usagi as both competitors tumble to the outside and continue to beat the shit out of each other out there.
Stew-O: Solomon Stane back up as he begins to trade shots with Ayu Megumi in the ring! Solomon! Ayu! Solomon! Ayu! Solomon! Ayu! BUT SOLOMON WITH THE HARDEST SLAP TO THE CHEST OF ALL TIME REVERBERATING ACROSS THE ENTIRE ARENA!! AYU’S HEART STOPS FROM THE IMPACT AND SHE COLLAPSES TO THE MAT!!! HOLY SHIT HE KILLED HER!!!
Jake Mercer: No wait Ayu Megumi is moving! Solomon Stane reaches down to pick her back u-
Flannery McCoy: SMALL PACKAGE!!! AYU MEGUMI ROLLING HIM UP OMG OMG OMG NEW CHAMPS NEW CHAMPS!!!
Stew-O: The kickout by Solomon Stane! Ayu Megumi nearly stealing it right there! Ayu is truly thievious. Ayu immediately transitions Solomon into a Triangle Choke keeping him trapped on the ground. Solomon is trapped and may be tapping out here tonight but he is trying to power up and out of the hold! Solomon refusing to be held down! Solomon grimacing in pain as he manages to force himself up to his feet with Ayu still wrapped around him in that Triangle Choke! Redwood with hard back elbow shots to Ayu and manages to finally break free! Redwood flies backwards ramming Ayu hard into the turnbuckle! Redwood punches Ayu hard in the face rocking her before running off the ropes… but Usagi with a hard elbow shot blocking whatever he has planned in order to maintain control of this match for the Ice Aces!!!
Jake Mercer: Ayu Megumi with a hard kick to the gut of Kirk Redwood before she bounces off the ropes. Redwood keels over as Usagi comes back… SCIZZORS KICK CONNECTS!!! Wait Usagi Senshi in the ring now after throwing Solomon Stane into the steel steps on the outside! She’s illegal! Get her out of here! OUT! OUT! OUT! ETHEREALITY CONNECTS!!! AYU WITH THE CLAYMORE KICK TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD AS USAGI DOES THE FATALITY RIGHT INTO THE FACE OF REDWOOD!!! USAGI ROLLS OUT OF THE RING AS AYU GOES FOR THE COVER!!!!! NEW CHAMPS CONFIRMED! IT’S FUCKING OVER!!!
Flannery McCoy: But Kirk Redwood grasps the bottom rope with his hand! The Off-Brand Amphetamines find a way to stay alive as the Ice Aces fail to win the titles with their devastating finishing move! Ayu Megumi can’t believe it she thought she was going to score a W there but there was no W to be scored! Ayu immediately transitions into a Side Headlock on Redwood but he is trying to power out of it! Usagi Senshi takes her place in the corner looking just as annoyed that they didn’t win the match there. But they shouldn’t give up hope. The champs can’t hold out much longer!
Stew-O: Kirk Redwood powers back up to his feet… but Ayu Megumi with a running vicious Lariat… only for Redwood to duck under it! Redwood off the ropes with a Lariat of his own sending Megumi flipping and flying through the air from the force. Redwood off the ropes and he connects with a Curb Stomp to the back of the head of Megumi! Redwood charges Usagi Senshi on the apron knocking her to the floor as she goes headfirst into the ringside barricade. That was uncalled for to be quite honest. But now Redwood has a chance he has isolated Ayu and has a chance to put her away! Solomon Stane now entering the ring after he is tagged in by Kirk!
Jake Mercer: THE X-PLEX CONNECTS!!! SOLOMON STANE INTO A BACKSTABBER AS KIRK REDWOOD HITS THE END OF THE RAINBOW!!! SOLOMON WITH THE COVER!!!! CAN THE CHAMPS RETAIN?!?!?
(DING! DING! DING!)
Stephie Love: Here are your winners… and STILL the EAW Unified Tag Team Champions of the World… THE OFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRAND AMPHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEETAMINESSSSSS!!!
(A&D by YNL Jordan hits to boos from the crowd as the referee delivers the titles to the Off-Brand Amphetamines.)
Stew-O: They did it! The Off-Brand Amphetamines retain the gold here tonight at Pain for Pride! They have secured their Pain for Pride moment here tonight! They will be forever remembered as one of the greatest EAW tag teams of all time as they have declared their dominance over the extremely competitive tag team division here in EAW!
Flannery McCoy: A very heartbreaking outcome for the Ice Aces and their fans here tonight. However, they did their very best and that is all that can be asked for. They showed that they are a top class tag team and if anything I think people are more convinced than ever that one day they WILL be champions!
Jake Mercer: That is true Flannery. But only one team can reign on top. The Ice Aces time will come but that time will not come here tonight at Pain for Pride XV! The Off-Brand Amphetamines are the ones who are FOREVER ALIVE!!! :blessed:
(Usagi Senshi is shown checking on Ayu Megumi in the ring as the champions celebrate with the titles while taking their leave from ringside.)
(The camera cuts to a commercial for HRDO’s mayoral campaign as he shares his thoughts on all of the issues he cares about most.)
Stephie Love: The following contest is scheduled for….ONE FALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!!!!!!!!! :blessed:
Stephie Love: AND IT IS THE FINALS OF THE INAUGURAL EAW NEW ERA CLASSIC TOURNAMENT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(The Band, Fall Out Boy, can be seen with their musical equipment on the rampway, as they start to play ‘Sugar We’re Going Down”!!!!! This gets a huge negative reaction, as Harley Lewis, wearing a Top Gun Style Jacket, walks through the curtain! He breathes in all the hate he is getting from the EAW Universe, smirking as he looks at the Band, before making his way down to the ramp!)
Stephie Love: INTRODUCING FIRST…FROM MANCHESTER, UNITED KINGDOM…WEIGHING IN AT 185 POUNDS…HE IS THE ‘HEARTTHROB OF EAW’…HARLEY LEWIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Stew-O: Harley Lewis is one of our Finalists in this Tournament! He went undefeated in his Block, and ended up defeating Caroline in the Semi-Finals to make it here tonight!
Flannery McCoy: And we all know from the war of words that these two had this week, Harley Lewis will not be one to back down! He is going to give it his all in this Match to put Joso away, and I am sure that he has a great chance of walking out of this Match as the winner!
Jake Mercer: You can tell the confidence of Harley Lewis is being showcased in this Entrance alone, as he is fully confident about his chances heading into this Match! Harley has all it takes to be a star in EAW, and winning this Match will prove it!
(Harley Lewis enters the ring, before posing in the center. He taunts the audience, as he would then back into his corner and ‘Sugar We’re Falling Down’ stops playing.)
(And suddenly, ‘No Messiah’ by Bad Wolves begins to blast throughout the Stadium, to an ear-piercing positive reaction from everyone in attendance, as walking through the curtain is Joso! Wearing a black and blue attire, Joso makes it to the center of the stage, and looks up at the ceiling, talking to himself, before walking down the ramp!)
Flannery McCoy: And here is Joso! Much like Harley Lewis, throughout the whole Tournament, Joso had gone undefeated in his Block! Beating the likes of Danny Tanner, Abel Atami, Pandora Paisley and ARIA, before making it to the Semi-Finals at Grand Rampage, where he would beat Aurora Monroe in impressive fashion to get here tonight!
Stew-O: And you know that Joso is not going to go down in this Match! Joso has talked this whole week about how the New Era Classic was made for him, and now it is time to back up his words in this Match tonight!
Jake Mercer: We all know that neither of these two are going to go down, but I have a lot of faith in Joso! He has shown constant improvement, and tonight might just be his night! We know that Harley Lewis is going to try and make sure that Joso doesn’t walk out of this Match as the winner, but I believe that Joso can do it, now it is time to prove it!
(Joso gets into the ring, and would get into the face of Harley Lewis as they exchange another war of words. Joso would then pose in the center of the ring, before backing into his corner. ‘No Messiah’ would begin to fade away, as the Referee makes sure that both of them are ready, before he signals the bell for this Match to start!!!!)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Crowd: WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :blessed: :blessed: :blessed:
Stew-O: AND THE FINALS OF THE NEW ERA CLASSIC TOURNAMENT IS UNDER WAY!!!!! :blessed: After Six Weeks of this grueling Tournament, at Grand Rampage, Joso and Harley Lewis would walk out the two Finalists, and now here at Pain For Pride, we see the both of them go at it to truly determine who the New Era really is!
Flannery McCoy: And it looks like we are going to start this Match with a lockup! Both Harley and Joso have been trying to outdo each other in recent weeks, and now we will decide who truly is better as both men are standing their ground! Joso looks to be getting the advantage however, pushing Harley towards the ropes…
Jake Mercer: BUT HARLEY PUSHES JOSO RIGHT OFF HIM AND ONTO THE GROUND!
Stew-O: Joso didn’t take too kindly to that, as he immediately gets back up to his feet, and the two lockup once more! This time it’s Joso who is forced to stand his ground, as Harley Lewis is picking up the advantage, pushing Joso…BUT JOSO GETS HIS REVENGE, PUSHING HARLEY DOWN TO THE GROUND!
Harley Lewis: :wtf:
Flannery McCoy: Harley Lewis quickly staggers up to his feet, as he goes right at Joso, but Joso grabs Harley by the arm, catching him with an armdrag, but the both of them get right back up to their feet as this time it’s Harley who grabs Joso by the arm, catching him with an armdrag of his own, but Harley holds on and rolls Joso over into a crucifix pin!!
Jake Mercer: An easy kickout by Joso as he gets right back up to his feet, but Harley gets up as well, and he just taunts at Joso showing him that it’s all it takes-…AS JOSO JUST BITCH SLAPS HARLEY LEWIS RIGHT ACROSS THE FACE AND HARLEY CRUMBLES TO THE FLOOR!!
Joso: (Off-Mic) FUCK YOU!
Stew-O: Harley Lewis backs away, before using the ropes to get back up to his feet. Harley and Joso stare down at each other for a few seconds, before Harley runs right back at Joso! But Joso moves out of the way, pushing Harley away as he runs the ropes, but Harley drops down, and Joso jumps over him running off the other side. Harley quickly gets back up to his feet, running the ropes himself, and the two meet each other right in the middle of the ring!
Flannery McCoy: Joso tries to grab Harley by the arm, but Harley Lewis is able to move out of dodge, twisting Joso around as he swings right at Joso, but Joso ducks it! Joso runs at the ropes, and Harley follows…but Joso runs to the otherside, and he slides out of the ring? Harley notices this as he runs to that side, and as Joso looks to run back into the ring, Harley Lewis catches him and kicks him back towards the announcer’s table! Harley quickly moves back into the ring from the apron..
Jake Mercer: And he runs the ropes once more and looks to connect with a suicide dive, but Joso moves out of the way! Harley Lewis is able to catch his landing as he lands on his feet, but that moment of space gives Joso the time to get back into the ring! THIS IS GOING AT A THOUSAND MILES PER SECOND!
Stew-O: And it doesn’t look to be stopping as now it’s Joso’s turn! Joso runs the ropes and looks for a suicide dive of his own, but Harley Lewis runs straight into the ring…BUT JOSO WAS ABLE TO GRAB ONTO THE ROPES AND COMPLETELY SHIFT HIS MOMENTEUM, AS HE TWISTS HIMSELF THROUGH THE MIDDLE ROPE AND BACK INTO THE RING! Joso runs right at Harley, but Harley runs out of the way, as they both run opposite sides of the ropes once more, but Joso goes low as he drops down and sweeps the leg of Harley, dropping himself down onto him for a pin!
Jake Mercer: Kickout by Harley Lewis, and both men are back up to their feet!!!!-
Flannery McCoy: SPINNING HEEL KICK BY JOSO!!!
Stew-O: BUT HARLEY LEWIS DUCKS IT AS HE BACKS INTO THE ROPES, AND HE RUNS FULL SPEED AHEAD AT JOSO…BUT JOSO STOPS HARLEY RIGHT IN HIS TRACKS!
Jake Mercer: STALEMATE!!!!
(Harley Lewis and Joso both stare at each other in the center of the ring, smirking at one of another when suddenly…)
Harley Lewis: (Off-Mic) BETTER THAN-
Joso: (Off-Mic) YOU.
Flannery McCoy: ROUNDHOUSE KICK RIGHT ACROSS THE HEAD OF HARLEY LEWIS BY JOSO, AND HARLEY FALLS RIGHT OVER! Joso drops down to his knees and now he’s beating away at Harley! Lefts and rights and Harley can’t even protect himself! Joso starts to elbow Harley Lewis right in the side of the head, and the Referee has to force him off! Joso backs away and into the corner, as the Referee has to check on Harley. If this is only the beginning of this Finals Match, what are we in store for as this Match progresses??
Stew-O: Harley Lewis waves the Referee off, letting him know that he can still compete as he gets back up to his feet…and he runs straight at Joso and jumps on him! Harley overwhelms Joso into the corner, as he knees him right in the gut, before grabbing Joso by the head, Harley throws Joso over his shoulders into a seated position, before running the ropes and kicking Joso right across the back, and then Harley runs the side ropes and knees Joso right in the side of the head!
Jake Mercer: Harley Lewis quickly gets back up to his feet, pulling Joso up with him as he throws him off the ropes, and he gets caught with a dropkick by Harley! Joso goes down, as Harley climbs back up to his feet, running the ropes and he drives his knee right into the face of Joso. Harley has taken advantage in this Match, and now it’s Joso who is in the wrong place! Joso tries to get back up to his feet, but Harley is right there to meet him as he overwhelms him into the corner with lefts and rights!
Flannery McCoy: But Joso is able to get himself out of it as he turns it around on Harley, but right as he was going to connect with a kick right to the head, Harley gets out of the way and he connects with a kick of his own! Joso staggers out of the corner, as Harley Lewis grabs him by the arm, and he throws him onto the ropes, and Joso falls onto the apron! Harley runs the ropes at Joso, but Joso catches him by the arm and drops it right on the ropes!
Stew-O: But when Joso was about to slide back into the ring, Harley kicks him right back down, and he jumps over the ropes and onto Joso down below! Remember that there are no count outs in this Match, as Harley pulls Joso back up to his feet, and he throws Joso right into the barricade! Joso goes back first into the barricade, and Harley notices that he has Joso right where he wants him, as he starts stomping away!
Jake Mercer: Joso tries to crawl away, but Harley Lewis pulls him up, before throwing him side first right into the apron of the ring! Harley throws Joso back into the ring, getting up to the apron as Joso gets back up to his feet, and Harley springboards and hits a springboard missile dropkick, and Joso flies across the right on impact! Harley looks to crawl to the cover, but Joso’s ring smarts are on display as he notices he is close to the ropes, and crawls into them.
Flannery McCoy: Harley Lewis gets back up to his feet, grabbing Joso and pulling him out of the ropes as he drags Joso up, and uppercuts him right in the jaw! Joso staggers away, and Harley grabs him by the arm, looking to throw him into the corner, but Joso reverses it and throws Harley into it instead. Joso runs at Harley, but Harley is able to jump onto the middle rope and perform a sunset flip, rolling through and he grabs Joso, pushing him back into the ropes as Joso rebounds back towards Harley, only to be caught with a jumping DDT!
Stew-O: Joso is down, and Harley Lewis is right back up to his feet, and he continues to showboat to a negative reaction from the fans in attendance! Joso gets to a knee, before Harley grabs him by the hair and pulls him up going around and grabbing him by the waist, as he goes to lift Joso up, but Joso turns it into an armdrag as he throws Harley over! Joso is back up to his feet, and he looks to go for a clothesline, but Harley sidesteps it, and he throws Joso right into the ropes, and Joso’s neck snaps against it!
Jake Mercer: Legend has it, Harley Lewis has been trying for this Match since the dinosaur age! :wow:
Jake Mercer: ?
Flannery McCoy: Well, while Jake is giving us his daily dose of bullshit, Harley Lewis has been in control of this Match as Joso is crawling around the ring, but Harley runs the ropes before kicking Joso right in the shoulder blade! Joso grabs his arm as he seems to be struggling right now, but won’t Harley won’t let off, and he drives his knee into the shoulder of Joso once more! Joso is in a very bad position here right now. :lupe:
Jake Mercer: Harley Lewis positions Joso onto the middle rope, as he holds his knee right at the neck of Joso! Harley is applying pressure, as remember, there are no such thing as count outs in this Match! Harley continues to hold onto the rope, before he gets off, running the ring, and running the opposite ropes as he plants his knee right into the lower back of The “Golden Ace”! Joso is still leaning on the ropes, as Harley runs again, and he goes to repeat but Joso with a random burst of energy gets back up to his feet-
Stew-O: HARLEY LEWIS STOPS RIGHT IN HIS TRACKS AND CONNECTS WITH A STIFF ELBOW TO JOSO! Joso crumbles down, and Harley shrugs it off, as he leans the lifeless body of Joso once more on the ropes, running them as he connects with a big boot right to the face! Harley pulls Joso to the center of the ring, and he takes the time to showboat again before he drops down and cockily pins Joso!
Flanney McCoy: But Joso is able to get the shoulder up, and he takes advantage of the cocky pin by Harley as he grabs him and floats him over, rolling through as he gets back up to his knee and backs up…and he drives his knee right up the face of Harley Lewis, but Harley is able to dodge it, and he grabs the knee of Joso, before pulling him right down to his level, and punching him right in the face!
Stew-O: Harley gets back up, as he pushes Joso down to the mat, before exiting onto the apron. He starts to climb up onto the top rope, as he takes all the time in the world, and that ends up costing him as Joso gets back up to his feet, and he stops Harley right in his tracks! Joso grabs Harley by the arm, before dragging him back into the ring…and Joso twists himself around and drops Harley with his arm still in grasp!
Jake Mercer: I honestly have a bad feeling about how this Match is going to be as it progresses. This isn’t just me, right?
Flannery McCoy: I want to agree, but I choose not to.
Stew-O: What Flannery said.
Jake Mercer: :noah:
Jake Mercer: Anyways…Joso gets back up to his feet, pulling Harley with him as he motions for the referee to move out of the way, and he drags Harley into the corner. Harley is in a seated position, as Joso runs the ropes, before booting Harley right in the face! He then picks Harley Lewis back up to his feet, still standing in the corner as then he delivers a vicious chop heard across the stadium, as Harley staggers away, but Joso grabs him once again, connecting with yet another chop right across the chest!
Flannery McCoy: Harley staggers into another corner, as Joso holds him up against it, and he says something that the audio can’t pick up, as he delivers yet another chop and Harley falls down to the knees! Joso then runs the ropes, as he looks to drive his knee right into the side of Harley’s head, but Harley gets out of dodge as he quickly exits onto the apron, but Joso still is able to catch him as he grabs Harley by the hair, and then moves to the arm, and Joso exits on the opposite side of the apron…AND HE DRAGS HARLEY SHOULDER FIRST RIGHT INTO THE RING POST! :lupe:
Stew-O: And now Joso climbs the top rope, as Harley is down on the apron still below, and Joso gets his standing…and he jumps off and drives his feet right into the lower back of Harley Lewis! Both of these Elitists crash down to the floor below, but Joso is able to get back up to his feet pretty quickly, and Harley is on his knees as Joso runs at him…BUT HARLEY CATCHES JOSO WITH A DROP TOEHOLD, JOSO GOING FACE FIRST INTO THE STEEL STEPS! And now Harley is back on the attack!
Jake Mercer: Harley Lewis keeps kicking Joso right back into those steel steps! Harley now grabs him by the waist as he throws him into the ring and climbs back onto the apron. Joso tries to get back up to his feet, but it’s too late as Harley enters the ring and catches Joso with a stiff forearm strike right to the jaw! Joso backs away but Harley continues to overwhelm him into the ropes, as Harley catches him with a stiff punch right into the gut, and that drops Joso down to a knee, where Harley runs the ropes and catches him with a boot!
Flannery McCoy: Harley Lewis tries to transition into some sort of armbar submission, but Joso is able to quickly get himself out of it, and that might have just been on pure instinct alone! Joso quickly gets to his feet but you can tell that he is groggy, and Harley takes advantage of that as he knees Joso right in the gut, before grabbing him by the next, and throws Joso right over his shoulders before connecting with a stiff kick right to the spine of Joso, as you can see him tense up from that!
Stew-O: Joso looks to get back up to his feet, but Harley stops him right in his tracks as he drops down and grabs Joso by the head, applying some sort of side headlock, but it looks like he also has Joso’s arm trapped! Joso is trying to get out of it, but Harley lifts his knee up, and he starts to drive it into the shoulder blade, which is helping push Joso down to his knees, before he slaps him right across the head! Harley then grabs a hold of Joso once again, before connecting with a variation of a headlock driver!
Jake Mercer: Joso is trying to get back up to his feet, slowly, but Harley just cuts him right back off driving his knee into the shoulder blade of Joso. Joso is trying to fight back, but it’s clear that Harley has the clear advantage in this Match as he picks Joso back up to his feet, and he throws Joso off the ropes only to be caught with another dropkick that lands right on the temple, and you can see that Joso’s lights were out with that! And even after that, Harley just shrugs it off and continues to show off to everyone in attendance.
Flannery McCoy: You can tell that the tone of this Match is starting to change in a more sadistic, violent way. Harley Lewis picks Joso back up to his feet, just to knee him right in the gut as he then moves to the top rope. While Joso is trying to get his bearings back, Harley Lewis takes a dive off the top rope and he catches Joso with a top rope clothesline, before then he just starts connecting lefts and rights right into the face of the man who calls himself The Golden Ace!
Stew-O: And you can tell that Harley Lewis has nothing but revenge on his mind as he holds Joso’s head down to the mat, and he just puts his boot right onto the skull of Joso and stomps right onto it! Joso looks to get up to his knees, but Harley boots him right down once more and just drives his knees right into the gut of Joso, taking the breath out of him quite literally! Joso has been trying to make a comeback in this Match, but Harley is starting to become too Match for him.
Jake Mercer: Harley Lewis then drops down to his knees, as he levels himself with Joso. Joso looks Harley right in the face, as Harley grabs him by the throat, before getting up to one knee. Joso tries to fight away, but Harley won’t let go and…what is he saying?
Harley Lewis: (Off-Mic) It’s time to admit that I was always better than you, mate.
Harley Lewis: (Off-Mic) You will never be better than me. Whether it was all on your own…or side by side with that stupid bitch Gelo.
Flannery McCoy: :krabs:
Jake Mercer: I told you guys this wasn’t going to be pretty…:lupe:
Flannery McCoy: AND A NEW FIRE HAS BEEN LIT UNDER JOSO! JOSO GETS UP AND HE TAKES HARLEY TO THE GROUND, CONNECTING WITH THOSE LEFTS AND RIGHTS AND THE REFEREE CAN’T EVEN GET HIM OFF! HARLEY IS TRYING TO DEFEND HIMSELF BUT…Joso backs up now? Joso is laughing! Harley Lewis makes it back up to his feet quickly, and Joso just shrugs…AND A SUCKER PUNCH BY JOSO THAT TAKES HARLEY RIGHT OFF HIS FEET! I don’t think that Harley saw that coming, and now Joso is on the attack!
Stew-O: Joso catches Harley Lewis with a stiff kick against the chin, and Harley loses balance as he leans against the ropes! Joso told Harley that he wouldn’t expect what’s coming, and that is being proven right now as Joso runs the ropes, and he looks to clothesline Harley over, but Harley quickly moves out of dodge, only to be caught with an enzuigiri by Joso! Harley falls down to a knee, and Joso connects with a swinging neckbreaker right in the center of the ring!
Jake Mercer: Harley Lewis tries to get away, but he can’t as Joso just continues to be absolutely relentless! He is not going to let what Harley said pass, and he continues the onslaught! Joso grabs Harley by the arm, as he goes around, before bringing it back and wrenching it in a chicken wing position! Joso pushes Harley towards the ropes, as he gets his foot up to his back, and he kicks him right into the ropes, as Harley goes throat first, just to then back into a backstabber by Joso!
Flannery McCoy: Harley Lewis somehow pops up right back up to his feet after the backstabber, but it doesn’t matter anyway as Joso is right up, and he grabs Harley by the neck, before connecting with a backbreaker. Joso then moves onto the apron, as Harley looks to get his bearings back, BUT JOSO SPRINGBOARDS AND HE CONNECTS WITH A SPRINGBOARD HIGH KNEE! JOSO ROLLS THROUGH, AND THEN HE GRABS HARLEY…’EXECUTIONER FROM HELL’!!!!! THE FRONT SUPLEX LIFT INTO A CUTTER CONNECTS!!!!!
Stew-O: HARLEY LEWIS IS ABLE TO ESCAPE THE CUTTER, AND HE RUNS THE ROPES…ONLY TO BE MET WITH A BOOT TO THE FACE BY JOSO! JOSO GRABS HARLEY BY THE ARM, AND RIPCORDS HIM INTO ANOTHER BIG BOOT, BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A SHORT SUPERKICK TO THE KNEE OF HARLEY! HARLEY FALLS DOWN TO A KNEE, AND HE RUNS THE ROPES…AND CONNECTS WITH A BICYCLE KNEE STRIKE TO THE BACK OF THE SKULL!!!! JOSO HITS THE ‘GREEN LIGHT’, THE SAME MOVE THAT ANGELO CARTER USES AS HE GOES IN FOR THE COVER!
Jake Mercer: HARLEY LEWIS MANAGES TO GET THE SHOULDER UP! Joso pulled a move out of his best friends’ playbook, and yet it wasn’t enough to keep Harley down! Joso gets into a seated position as he looks at the referee, annoyed at the two count before getting back up to his feet. Harley can be seen crawling around, but Joso makes sure to grab a hold of him, before slowly dragging Harley back up to his feet…WAIT LOOK! HARLEY JUST RAKED THE EYES OF JOSO WHILE THE REFEREE’S VIEW WAS BLOCKED!
Flannery McCoy: CHOP BLOCK BY HARLEY LEWIS! JOSO’S KNEE BUCKLE AS NOW HARLEY LEWIS JUST GOES RIGHT TO WORK ON THAT KNEE! Joso tries to get away, but Harley just drives his knee right into the kneecap of Joso, before rolling over into some sort of knee lock! Harley has Joso’s knee trapped and he is not going to let go. Joso is in trouble here! Joso knows that he needs to get to the ropes, but Harley Lewis won’t let him as he continues to wrench it in more and more, cutting off the ability to crawl!
Stew-O: Joso is trying his hardest to make it to the ropes, but Harley has that hold in tight! Harley starts repositioning as he starts to bring Joso closer to the middle of the ring, and that just makes it even harder for Joso to be able to make it to the ropes! Joso has absolutely no where to go, as he is trapped in the middle of the ring, and Harley only continues to wrench that kneehold in even tighter, cutting off quite a lot!
Jake Mercer: :lupe: Joso might have to submit here, but he looks to keep fighting through! Throughout all the pain and agony, Joso continues to try and push himself to the rope, as he finally is able to make some movement! You can see the look on Harley’s face begins to change, as Joso continues to push himself forward, hoping to get closer and closer to the ropes to cause a rope break, and he might be able to do it! Joso might be able to cause the rope break!
Flannery McCoy: JOSO IS SURVIVING! THROUGH ALL THE PAIN, JOSO IS MAKING IT TO THE ROPES! Joso is within hand’s reach of the ropes…but look! Harley Lewis repositions himself and he tries pulling Joso back into the center of the ring, but Joso isn’t having it! Joso isn’t having it! Joso is fighting it as he is able to get out of the grip of Harley! Joso gets back up to his feet, and he runs off the ropes, but Harley stops him right in his tracks again, as he quickly grabs a hold of him and he connects with a vertical suplex!
Stew-O: Harley picks Joso back up to his feet, as he leans Joso against the ropes, before putting his foot up to the back of Joso, and he just kicks Joso right in the lower back, and that causes Joso to fall down into a kneeling position!
(Harley Lewis notices that after Joso turns back towards him, Joso gives Harley nothing more than a wicked smile. This proves to Harley that Joso is not going down with a fight, and that Joso is going to fight until he can’t no more.)
Jake Mercer: JOSO ISN’T GOING TO BACK DOWN! HE KNOWS HOW IMPORTANT THIS MATCH IS TO HIM, AND HE IS NOT GOING TO GIVE IT AWAY, AND I DON’T THINK HARLEY LEWIS LIKES THAT! HARLEY RUNS AT JOSO, AND HE BOOTS JOSO RIGHT IN THE FACE AS I THINK THAT TURNED THE LIGHTS OFF FOR JOSO! JOSO IS LEANING LIFELESS ON THE ROPES, AND HARLEY LEWIS IS NOW THE ONE WHO IS SMILING! HARLEY LEWIS IS NOW THE ONE WHO IS CRACKING THE WICKED SMILE RIGHT INTO THE CLOSED EYES OF JOSO!
Flannery McCoy: Harley Lewis grabs a hold of Joso, as he slowly drags him back up to his feet, AND HARLEY CONNECTS WITH A HIGH KNEE RIGHT TO THE SKULL OF JOSO! A STANDING HIGH KNEE CONNECTS, AND JOSO’S LIGHTS ARE DIMMED ONCE AGAIN! JOSO IS ON WOBBLY LEGS, AND HARLEY DOESN’T CARE AS HE GRABS A HOLD OF JOSO ONCE AGAIN, AND HE CONNECTS WITH ANOTHER HIGH KNEE, AND JOSO JUST FALLS DOWN TO A KNEE! Harley Lewis now backs into a corner, and Joso can be seen trying to get back up to his feet, but he can’t!
(After a few moments, Joso is able to finally make it back up to his feet…but…)
Stew-O: AND HARLEY LEWIS RUNS AT JOSO AND CATCHES HIM WITH THE DROP FRONTKICK THAT PUSHES JOSO RIGHT INTO THE CORNER! JOSO IS CAUGHT AND NOW HARLEY QUICKLY TAKES ADVANTAGE, GRABBING A HOLD OF JOSO AND CONNECTING WITH THE EXPLODER SUPLEX! ‘CAR CRASH’ CONNECTS, AND JOSO IS OUT OF IT, BUT I DON’T THINK HARLEY IS DONE! HARLEY THEN DRAGS JOSO BACK TO THE CENTER OF THE RING, AND HE RUNS THE ROPES…BEFORE JUMPING ONTO JOSO AND CONNECTING WITH THE FINISHING PART OF THE ‘SLIDE IN THE DMS’, CONNECTING WITH THE DOUBLE FOOT STOMP AS HE DRIVES HIS FEET THROUGH THE CHEST OF JOSO!
Jake Mercer: HARLEY LEWIS DROPS DOWN, AND HE HOOKS THE LEG OF JOSO! JOSO IS OUT OF IT, AND I THINK THAT HARLEY LEWIS HAS THIS MATCH WON! WE ARE GOING TO CROWN THE INAUGURAL WINNER OF THE NEW ERA CLASSIC TOURNAMENT!
Flannery McCoy: JOSO KICKS OUT AGAIN! JOSO KICKS OUT AND YOU CAN TELL THAT HARLEY LEWIS IS PISSED OFF! HARLEY THOUGHT HE HAD THIS MATCH WON, BUT ONCE AGAIN JOSO STAYS IN IT AND HE CONTINUES TO PUSH THROUGH! HARLEY HAS TRIED TO PUT JOSO AWAY, AND IT STILL ISN’T ENOUGH, AND HARLEY IS GOING RIGHT BACK ON THE ATTACK TO MAKE SURE THAT HE CAN PUT JOSO IN THE GROUND! LEFTS AND RIGHTS BY HARLEY, AND JOSO IS DEFENSELESS! JOSO CAN’T DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT AS HARLEY IS ABSOLUTELY RELENTLESS-
Stew-O: JOSO IS ABLE TO GET HARLEY OFF HIM, AND HE QUICKLY STAGGERS UP TO HIS FEET, BUT HE IS MET WITH A SUCKER PUNCH IN RETURN BY HARLEY LEWIS! Harley Lewis then runs the ropes, and he looks to connect with another big boot, BUT JOSO IS ABLE TO CONNECT WITH A BIG BOOT OF HIS OWN, AND HARLEY FALLS TO A KNEE…BUT JOSO CRUMBLES DOWN TO THE GROUND AS WELL, AND IT LOOKS LIKE THAT HARLEY STILL HAS THE CLEAR CUT ADVANTAGE IN THIS TIME!
Jake Mercer: Harley Lewis is struggling to get back up to his feet, but with some help from the ropes, he is able to get back up, but it’s clear that Joso isn’t moving at all! Harley looks down at Joso, and he smiles as he knows that he has the advantage in this scenario. There has been no sight of movement made by Joso at all, and I am starting to wonder how much longer it will be until Joso won’t be able to go anymore?
Flannery McCoy: Little movement can be seen being made by Joso, but you can tell that Harley Lewis noticed it, and he drops his foot right into the head of Joso because of it. Harley then drags Joso back up to his feet…but Joso pushes Harley off him, and Harley rebounds the ropes…AND HARLEY REBOUNDS INTO A POWERFUL LARIAT BY JOSO! THAT MIGHT HAVE TAKEN QUITE A LOT OUT OF JOSO, BUT HE IS GETTING RIGHT BACK UP TO HIS FEET, AND IT’S LIKE A NEW LIFE HAS BEEN FOUND IN HIM ONCE MORE! JOSO KICKS AT HARLEY WHILE HE IS DOWN…
Stew-O: AND JOSO RUNS THE ROPES, LOOKING TO CONNECT WITH A SLIDING KICK, BUT HARLEY QUICKLY GETS BACK UP TO HIS FEET, BUT JOSO GETS BACK UP AS WELL! HARLEY RUNS AT JOSO, BUT JOSO GETS OUT OF DODGE…BUT HARLEY CATCHES JOSO WITH A FOREARM TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD! HARLEY CATCHES JOSO WITH THE FOREARM, BUT JOSO RESPONDS WITH AN OVERHEAD KICK THAT CATCHES HARLEY RIGHT OFF GUARD! HARLEY IS DAZED AND JOSO RUNS THE ROPES AGAIN, BEFORE HE’S THE ONE WHO CONNECTS WITH A FOREARM RIGHT TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD OF HARLEY LEWIS!
Flannery McCoy: You can tell that Joso is still groggy, and you can tell that he is still out of it, but he is still fighting, and this is what EAW is all about :blessed:! This is what the New Era is all about :blessed:! These two men are giving it their absolute all in this Match, and I don’t think that this match is stopping until we have a clear cut winner! We know just how much the both of these two men want to be able to win the New Era Classic Tournament, and now we are watching the Finals, and we are watching them put everyone on the line! :blessed:!!!! :dynasty:!!!! :eaw:!!!!!
Jake Mercer: Joso is leaning against the ropes for support, as Harley Lewis can be seen crawling up to a knee. Joso sighs, as he goes to grab a hold of Harley, but Harley connects with a stiff elbow strike right to the midsection of Joso! Joso rebounds off the ropes, and an exhausted Harley Lewis grabs a hold of him, before connecting with a quick powerslam, but now it is Harley who is leaning up against the ropes for support!
(Joso can be seen still getting back up to his feet, and Harley Lewis just lets out a deep breath of disappointment. He goes to grab Joso, when suddenly…)
Stew-O: ‘EXECUTIONER FROM HELL’!!!!! ON PURE INSTINCT, JOSO WAS ABLE TO GRAB A HOLD OF HARLEY LEWIS AND THROW HIM UP INTO THE AIR WITH A FRONT SUPLEX LIFT BEFORE CONNECTING WITH THE CUTTER! HARLEY IS OUT OF IT, AND JOSO FALLS DOWN TO HIS KNEES, AND HE PUSHES HARLEY ONTO HIS BACK…AND JOSO DRAPES HIMSELF OVER HARLEY LEWIS! JOSO HAS THE PIN, AND HE MIGHT HAVE THE MATCH WON! WE MIGHT BE SEEING THE WINNER OF THE NEW ERA CLASSIC TOURNAMENT!!!
Flannery McCoy: HARLEY LEWIS GETS THE SHOULDER UP JUST IN TIME, AND YOU CAN SEE THE EMOTIONLESS EXPRESSION ACROSS THE FACE OF JOSO! Joso has been trying his absolute hardest to stay in this Match, and I am sure that he knew Harley was going to bring the fight, but I don’t think he expected it to be like this! Joso tries to get back up to his feet, but you can tell that he is wobbly…AND LOOK! FROM BEHIND HARLEY LEWIS HAS GOTTEN UP, AND HE CONNECTS WITH ANOTHER CHOP BLOCK!
Jake Mercer: HARLEY LEWIS CONNECTS WITH YET ANOTHER CHOP BLOCK TO JOSO, AND NOW HE IS BACK UP TO HIS FEET! HARLEY PUSHES THE REFEREE OUT OF THE WAY, AND HE TAKES A SLOW REBOUND OFF THE ROPE BEFORE STOMPING RIGHT ONTO THE LEG OF JOSO ONCE AGAIN! HARLEY LEWIS DRAGS JOSO BACK UP TO HIS FEET, AND HE GRABS A HOLD OF HIM, BEFORE SPINNING AROUND AND CONNECTING WITH A TORNADO DDT! JOSO LANDS LIFELESS, AND HARLEY FALLS DOWN TO HIS KNEES!
Stew-O: Harley Lewis gets back up to his feet, and he backs into the corner as Joso is just out right in the middle of the ring. Harley takes the time to get a breathing room, as Joso can be seen making absolutely no movement whatsoever. The Referee goes over to check on Joso, as I think that this Match might end prematurely, I don’t know if Joso will be able to compete for much longer. :lupe: You can tell that Harley Lewis is exhausted, but he is smiling at the condition of Joso.
Flannery McCoy: But look! Movement is being made! Slowly but surely, Joso is moving! He is crawling to the ropes, but I don’t think that he will be able to get back up to his feet. Joso continues to crawl towards the ropes, as Harley Lewis gets out of the corner, smiling at Joso’s efforts. Joso is able to finally make it to the ropes, and Harley smirks, as Joso is slowly pulling himself up! The Referee has deemed Joso able to keep competing, and now Joso has gotten back up to his feet! But Harley Lewis is right there-
Jake Mercer: BUT JOSO IS STILL FIGHTING BACK! JOSO IS CONNECTING WITH THOSE STRIKES, AND HARLEY LEWIS IS TRYING TO PROTECT HIMSELF! JOSO PUSHES HARLEY BACK, AS HE REBOUNDS OFF THE ROPES…AND HE GOES TO CONNECT WITH A LARIAT, BUT HARLEY LEWIS DODGES IT-…BUT JOSO GOES FOR AN OVERHEAD KICK, AND HARLEY DODGES IT ONCE AGAIN! Joso falls flat, and Harley just smirks as he backs into the corner, before running at Joso and kicking him right into the shoulder!
Stew-O: BUT JOSO GETS RIGHT BACK UP TO HIS FEET AND HE STARTS ATTACKING HARLEY AGAIN! JOSO OVERWHELMS HARLEY INTO THE CORNER WITH THOSE STRIKES! JOSO RUNS THE ROPES…AND HE CONNECTS WITH A BIG BOOT RIGHT INTO THE FACE OF HARLEY LEWIS! HE RUNS THE ROPES AGAIN…AND ANOTHER BIG BOOT-
Flannery McCoy: WAIT NO! NO! HARLEY LEWIS GRABBED A HOLD OF JOSO, AND HE BACKED HIM RIGHT INTO THE MIDDLE TURNBUCKLE, AND JUST LIKE THAT I THINK THAT JOSO IS OUT OF IT ONCE MORE! HARLEY SMILES AS HE PULLS JOSO INTO THE MIDDLE OF THE RING…but he falls down once more from exhaustion! Harley Lewis backs to the ropes, using them as support to get back up to his feet as he looks at Joso with that devious smirk! Harley Lewis knows that the longer this Match goes on, the worse Joso’s condition is going to get. But I think Harley is looking to end this!
Jake Mercer: Harley Lewis pulls Joso back up to his feet once more…BUT JOSO IS STILL TRYING TO FIGHT! JOSO IS WILDLY SWINGING AT HARLEY, BUT HARLEY IS DUCKING ALL OF IT BEFORE HE CATCHES JOSO WITH A STIFF BACKFIST RIGHT AGAINST THE CHEEKBONE, AND JOSO JUST FALLS RIGHT BACK OVER! HARLEY KNOWS THAT HE HAS THIS MATCH WON, AS HE PICKS JOSO BACK UP TO HIS FEET…AND ANOTHER BACKFIST, THIS TIME WITH A SPIN…BUT JOSO CATCHES JOSO! HARLEY PUTS JOSO ONTO HIS SHOULDERS…AND THIS IS IT! ‘JUKEBOX BREAKER’! THE DEATH VALLEY DRIVER CONNECTS! IT’S OVER!
Stew-O: JOSO IS FIGHTING OUT OF IT! JOSO IS FIGHTING OUT OF IT! WITH ALL THE STRENGTH HE HAS LEFT, JOSO IS FIGHTING OUT OF THE JUKEBOX BREAKER AS HARLEY LETS GO OF HIM! JOSO RUNS THE ROPES, AND HE CONNECTS WITH A RUNNING FOREARM ON HARLEY! AND ANOTHER ONE! JOSO IS TRYING TO TAKE HARLEY OFF HIS FEET, AND HE RUNS THE ROPES ONE MORE TIME, AND HE CONNECTS WITH ANOTHER RUNNING FOREARM-
Flannery McCoy: JUKEBOX BREAKER! JUKEBOX BREAKER! HARLEY CAUGHT JOSO ONTO HIS SHOULDERS AND HE CONNECTS WITH THE DEATH VALLEY DRIVER! JOSO IS OUT OF IT, AND HARLEY DRAPES HIMSELF OVER THE PRONE BODY OF JOSO! THIS IS IT!
(. . . … .. … ….)
Jake Mercer: IJOF3I3T2IROFMOPF3PPO3FMPO3F :damn:!!!!!!!!! JOSO KICKS OUT OF THE JUKEBOX BREAKER, AND HARLEY LEWIS IS ABSOLUTELY FURIOUS!
Stew-O: YOU CAN TELL THAT HARLEY LEWIS’ IGNORANCE GOT THE BEST OF HIM, AS HE IS ARGUING WITH THE REFEREE ABOUT THAT COUNT! JOSO IS DOWN AND OUT, AND HARLEY IS RIGHT UP TO HIS FEET! HARLEY IMMEDIATELY GRABS JOSO, AND PICKS HIM BACK ONTO HIS SHOULDERS…’SUCK YOUR MUDDA’!!!!!!!!!! THE SIT-OUT FASTBUSTER CONNECTS-
Flannery McCoy: BUT JOSO ROLLS ONTO THE APRON, AND HARLEY LEWIS IS EVEN MORE PISSED OFF!! Harley Lewis is back up to his feet, as it seems that Joso is trying to catch his breath on the apron. Harley slowly moves to the apron as well, as he picks Joso up, and slaps him right across the face and that leaves Joso wobbly! Harley then grabs a hold of Joso, as he seems to be looking down at the floor below…and I think Harley Lewis is going to suplex Joso off the apron! Harley gets Joso in the air…
Jake Mercer: BRRRRRRRAAAAAAAAIIIIIIIIIINNNNNNNNNNNNBUUUUUUUUUUUSSSSSSSSTTTTTTTTAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Stew-O: BRAINBUSTER BY JOSO! BRAINBUSTER BY JOSO! JOSO HITS THE BRAINBUSTER ON HARLEY LEWIS ONTO THE APRON! ON PURE INSTINCT ALONE, JOSO CONNECTS WITH THE BRAINBUSTER, AND HE PUSHES HARLEY BACK INTO THE RING! JOSO GETS IN AS WELL, AS HE EYES DOWN HARLEY, AS HARLEY STARTS TO GET BACK UP TO HIS FEET…JOSO GRABS HARLEY BY HIS TRUNKS AND PULLS HIM IN…
Flannery McCoy: INCOMING SILENCE! THE SPINNING SIT-OUT POWERBOMB, AND JOSO ISN’T DONE! JOSO PULLS HARLEY BACK UP TO HIS FEET AS HE IS RUSHING ON ADRENALINE, AND HE GETS HARLEY LEWIS INTO A PILEDRIVER POSITION…HEAVEN’S GAAAAAATTTTTTTTTTTTEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THE PACKAGE PILEDRIVER CONNECTS WITH FORCE, AND HARLEY LEWIS IS OUT OF IT! JOSO GOES FOR THE PIN TO PUT AN END TO THIS MATCH!
(.. …. …….)
Jake Mercer: HE KICKED OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HARLEY LEWIS FINDS A WAY TO GET THE SHOULDER UP, AND THE LOOK ON JOSO’S FACE TELLS THE WHOLE STORY! JOSO THOUGHT HE HAD THIS MATCH WON! JOSO THOUGHT IT WAS OVER! JOSO THOUGHT HE HAS PUT AN END TO THIS TOURNAMENT, BUT IT IS STILL GOING! HARLEY LEWIS IS STILL IN THIS MATCH! Joso is slowly crawling back up to his feet, and you can tell that he is starting to get more and more worried about the outcome of this Match :lupe:.
Stew-O: Joso looks confused on what he needs to do, as Harley Lewis is now, slowly but surely, crawling towards the ropes, using them as support to get back up to his feet. Once Harley is up, he turns to Joso, as they meet in the center of the ring…and they start trading strikes! Joso! Harley! Joso! Harley! Harley! Joso! Joso! Joso! Joso! JOSO! JOSO IS GETTING THE UPPER HAND-…BUT HARLEY CATCHES JOSO WITH A FOREARM STRIKE! BUT JOSO CONNECTS WITH ONE OF HIS OWN IN RESPONSE!
Flannery McCoy: Joso pushes Harley into the ropes, as he rebounds off them INTO ANOTHER FOREARM STRIKE! Harley gets stopped right in his tracks, but Harley Lewis connects with a European uppercut! That rocks Joso, but he still stands on his feet as Harley now grabs a hold of Joso, and he looks for a powerslam, but Joso holds his standing as he kicks Harley Lewis right into the knee! Joso now grabs Harley Lewis by the arm, and he irish whips him into the ropes once again, before he catches Harley with a calf kick!
Jake Mercer: Harley Lewis quickly gets back up to his feet though, but Joso grabs Harley before throwing his head right into the top turnbuckle of the corner, and then he goes for a schoolboy, rolling through and connecting with a pump knee strike right to the skull…BUT HARLEY MOVES OUT OF THE WAY, BEFORE TRIPPING JOSO UP AND CATCHING JOSO WITH THAT PUNCH TO THE JAW! Both Joso and Harley are on level ground on the bottom of the mat, as Harley throws a punch at Joso…JOSO GRABS A HOLD OF HARLEY’S HAND! JOSO GRABS A HOLD OF HARLEY’S HAND AS HE GETS BACK UP TO A KNEE…AND HE STARTS SEPARATING THE FINGERS-
Stew-O: THE JOINT MANIPULATION! JOSO SNAPS THE DIGITS! JOSO SNAPS THE DIGITS! HARLEY LEWIS IS HOLDING HIS HAND IN ABSOLUTE ANGOY, AND JOSO IS LAUGHING AT IT! JOSO NOW GRABS THE OTHER HAND, AND HARLEY IS TRYING TO HOLD HIS GROUND-
Flanney McCoy: NOW TO THE OTHER HAND OF HARLEY, JOSO SNAPS THE DIGITS ONCE AGAIN! HARLEY LEWIS IS BACKING UP AS JOSO HAS THE SADISTIC SMILE ACROSS HIS FACE! AFTER EVERYTHING HARLEY HAS INFLICTED ON HIM IN THIS MATCH, JOSO IS GETTING HIS PAYBACK! JOSO NOW PULLS HARLEY BACK UP TO HIS FEET, GRABBING A HOLD OF HIS ARM AND TRUNKS…AND JOSO PULLS HARLEY RIGHT INTO THE CORNER AND HARLEY GOES SHOULDER FIRST INTO THE RINGPOST! AND THEN JOSO JUMPS ONTO THE ROPES, SPRINGBOARDING AS HE DRIVES HIS KNEES INTO THE LOWER BACK!
Jake Mercer: JOSO IS UNSTOPPABLE RIGHT NOW! He is getting his payback and he is absolutely relentless! Joso now pulls Harley out of the corner, and he just drops him, as Harley crumbles down to the feet of Joso! Joso looks around, before he backs up, and he picks Harley back up to his feet! Joso throws Harley off the ropes…but Harley dodges Joso and catches him with a backbreaker…but Joso flips over and connects with a swift overhead kick right to a ground Harley! Joso starts to crawl away, as this Match is still continuing!
Stew-O: Both Joso and Harley Lewis get back up to their feet again, but immediately Joso runs right at Harley and knees him in the gut while Harley was leaning against the ropes! Joso looks down at Harley, and you can tell that there is absolutely no remorse! Joso’s eyes tell it all! He grabs Harley, and he drags him into the middle of the ring! Joso has Harley in the middle of the ring! JOSO IS GETTING HARLEY ONTO HIS SHOULDERS….AND HE LIFTS HIM UP…BEFORE DROPPING HIM DOWN!
Flannery McCoy: GRATEFUL DEATH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Jake Mercer: :krabs: WAIT THE REFEREE!!!!!!!!!!!!
Stew-O: JOSO MISSED THE KNEE STRIKE OF GRATEFUL DEATH, AND HARLEY LEWIS ACCIDENTALLY LANDED ON THE REFEREE! THE REFEREE HAS BEEN TAKEN OUT AND JOSO IS PANICKING! JOSO IS PANICKING! JOSO GRABS HARLEY-
Flannery McCoy: LOW BLOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Jake Mercer: THE MOMENT HARLEY KNEW THE REFEREE WAS OUT, HE CAPITALIZED AND CONNECTED WITH A LOW BLOW! JOSO IS DOWN, AND HARLEY GRABS JOSO BY THE FOOT, AS HE PULLS HIM OUT TO THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING! HARLEY KNOWS HE CAN DO WHATEVER WHILE THE REFEREE IS DOWN, AND HE THROWS JOSO RIGHT INTO THE RING POST! JOSO’S FACE MEETS THE UNFORGIVING STEEL OF THE RINGPOST!! JOSO IS OUT COLD AND HARLEY LEWIS KNOWS THAT HE CAN DO WHATEVER HE WANTS NOW!
Stew-O: Harley Lewis pulls Joso back up to his feet…AND THIS TIME HE THROWS JOSO RIGHT INTO THE CORNER OF OUR ANNOUNCERS TABLE! Harley looks around…and he looks at the timekeepers area, and I think he has spotted those Chairs! Harley picks Joso up…AND HE THROWS JOSO RIGHT INTO THE CHAIRS! AND HARLEY PICKS UP A CHAIR FROM OUT OF UNDER JOSO, AND SLAMS IT RIGHT INTO THE BACK! AND AGAIN! ANOTHER CHAIR SHOT BY HARLEY LEWIS, AND NOW HE THROWS IT TOWARDS THE RING!
Flannery McCoy: Harley Lewis is dragging the lifeless body of Joso towards the ring, before barely being able to pull him into the ring! Harley now looks down at the floor…and he grabs that Chair he threw towards the ring! Harley is smiling, and this isn’t going to be good. Harley Lewis gets back into the ring, and as Joso is attempting to get back up to his feet…Harley kicks him right upside the gut, and Joso is still just completely out of it!
(Harley Lewis picks the Chair back up, as he holds it in his grasp. He looks at Joso, who hasn’t moved an inch. All Harley can do is smile, as he knows what he needs to do in order to win this Match. Finally…Joso is able to make very little movement.)
Jake Mercer: Joso is barely moving, as he has his hand on the rope. Joso is slowly crawling up to his feet with support from the ropes, and Harley has a tight grip on that Chair. Joso finally looks towards Harley…and I think he is accepting his fate! That there is nothing else Joso can do!!
Harley Lewis: (Off-Mic) I told you, mate..I AM THE NEW ERA!!!
(Harley begins to lift up the Chair, as al he continues to do is talk shit to Joso who doesn’t know where he is whatsoever.)
Harley Lewis: (Off-Mic) You were never going to be better than me. You hear me? I will always be better than you.
Joso: (Off-Mic) …COME ON! HIT ME!
(Harley Lewis smirks…BEFORE SPITTING IN THE FACE OF JOSO!)
Harley Lewis: (Off-Mic) I WILL ALWAYS BE BETTER-
(Harley Lewis turns his head…to see that the Referee is slowly getting back up to his feet. Harley starts to panic as Joso is smiling.)
Harley Lewis: (Off-Mic) YOU’RE DONE!
Stew-O: AND HARLEY SWINGS THE CHAIR RIGHT AT THE HEAD OF JOSO!!!!!!!!!
Jake Mercer: JOSO MOVED! JOSO MOVED AND THE CHAIR REBOUNDS AGAINST THE ROPES AS HARLEY CRACKS HIMSELF RIGHT ON HIS SKULL! HARLEY DROPS THE CHAIR AS IT FALLS TO THE GROUND DOWN BELOW, AND HARLEY STAGGERS BACK…RIGHT ONTO JOSO’S SHOULDERS! HARLEY LEWIS IS ON THE SHOULDERS OF JOSO, AND JOSO LIFTS HARLEY INTO THE AIR, AND HITS THE KNEE! GRATEFUL DEATH! GRATEFUL DEATH!
Stew-O: BUT AS HARLEY FALLS DOWN TO HIS KNEES, JOSO GRABS HARLEY ONCE AGAIN! JOSO GRABS HARLEY AS HE HAS A LOCK HOLD ON THE WRISTS OF HARLEY! JOSO PULLS HARLEY UP! JOSO ISN’T DONE! JOSO ISN’T DONE! JOSO PULLS HARLEY IN…AND HE TRANSITIONS…
Flannery McCoy: KING’S CROWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Stew-O: THE TRANSITION INTO THE SHORT-ARM LARIAT CONNECTS! HARLEY LEWIS LANDS RIGHT ONTO HIS HEAD FROM THE LARIAT, AND JOSO FALLS DOWN, AND ONTO THE LIFELESS BODY OF HARLEY! JOSO GOES FOR THE COVER! JOSO GOES FOR THE COVER! IT’S OVER! IT’S OVER! IT’S OVER!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(‘No Messiah’ blasts through the Stadium!!!)
Stephie Love: HERE IS YOUR WINNER OF THE INAUGURAL EAW NEW ERA CLASSIC TOURNAMENT….THE ‘GOLDEN ACE’….JOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Stew-O: JOSO WINS! JOSO WINS! INOFEQI0O3FIMMFIPOECIMPOMPOGNMH9N9-MG2MW-MW-0M-9TGM-WFM-0VGM-0M0-M-0VSM-0M-OEFMPOMPOFEQMPOVMN90T3N09NI09n)(()er#n09RN093N0909!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Jake Mercer: JOSO IS THE WINNER OF THE FIRST EVER NEW ERA CLASSIC TOURNAMENT!!!!!!!!!!! HE DID IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Flannery McCoy: THROUGH HELL AND BACK, JOSO WALKS OUT AS THE UNDENIABLE FUTURE AND NEW ERA OF ELITE ANSWERS WRESTLING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(Joso slowly but surely gets back up to his feet with the help of the Referee. Joso can be seen with tears coming down from his eyes, as his arm gets raised by the Referee! Joso looks down at Harley Lewis, before he staggers over to the ropes, climbing to the top rope and posing!)
Stew-O: After a grueling Tournament, when it all came down to it, it was Joso who has proved that he is going to be something special within Elite Answers Wrestling!
Joso: (Off-Mic) I’M THE NEW ERA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Crowd: WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO FINOF3IMPFPOG3M09TN09n)(e)(nn)(@n()re@m(-O–WMR-02M-FFM-0M-0M-03M-0CM-0F3 :blessed: :blessed: :blessed: :eaw:!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(Joso continues to celebrate his victory, Harley Lewis now on the outside of the ring as he is checked on by the Referee. The final image is of Joso, on the top rope, celebrating his victory as The New Era of EAW! The Camera would then fade away.)
(Slowly fading back into view, the camera would pan around the Allegiant Stadium crowd, who are on their feet for a fiery night of Pain For Pride matches. The camera would then pan forward as we see the next matchup graphic, before fading to Gina Romano in the ring who is holding an EAW-branded microphone.)
Gina Romano: Ladies and Gentlemen, the following contest is scheduled for ONE FALL!
Crowd: ONE FALL!
Gina Romano: And it is a FATAL FOUR WAY MATCH!!!!
(Moments later, the camera would pan up to the stage as ‘7 Rings’ by Ariana Grande blares through the speakers. The entire crowd would jump into an orchestra of boos, as Veena Adam would walk out from behind the curtains, dressed in a gold variant of her regular attire. She would have a smug grin on her face, before it washes to annoyance, as she then walks down the ramp.)
Gina Romano: Introducing first… hailing from Greenwich, Connecticut, weighing in at 121 pounds… VEEEEEEENNNAAAAAAAAAA AAAADDDAAAAAAAMSSSS!!!
Eve: Just 24 hours ago, we saw Veena Adams induct Charlie Marr into the EAW Hall of Fame, and now we see here competing at Pain For Pride in a match that she most definitely sees as a must-win in order to continue stepping up her game! Since she entered Showdown around Midsummer Massacre time last year, her career has been a lot tougher now that she no longer has the GM role next to her name, but she smoothly found her way into her own, and now she could very well prove that as she steps toe-to-toe with 3 other Elitists, with a good chance of coming out on top, picking up a much-wanted victory! If she does so, Veena Adams will be undeniable heading into Season 16!
(Veena Adams walks up the steel steps, her hands placed on her jacket, before she enters the ring. She once again grins, before extending her arms to the side, as pyro shoots off in the background behind her. The camera would very quickly zoom out, to where Veena is barely visible, making the fireworks the center of attention. The camera fades back to ringside, though, where her theme song fades out, only to be replaced by ‘Mr. Brightside’ by The Killers. Lexi would walk out through the curtains, wearing a black-and-red version of her attire. She poses on the stage, before walking down the ramp.)
Gavin Kirkland: Pros: Thicc. Cons: She’s trying to take Limmy from me. What to do. :thinking:
Gina Romano: Introducing secondly… hailing from Detroit, Michigan, weighing in at 117 pounds… LLLLLLLLLEEEXXIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII!!!
Deadprez: Here comes another Elitist who looks to be on winning ways! Lexi returned to EAW not too long ago, eventually picking up a victory at Dia Del Diablo against a newcomer here to this company. But now, she’s looking to strike it big by coming out victorious against three other people at Pain For Pride, much like the rest of them. Lexi, having disassosiated herself with Terry, has now set on a somewhat-new career path. As much as she wants to deny it, that enthralled her towards stalking Limmy Monaghan. :mjlol: I’m sure that tonight could be an opportunity to impress him, and perhaps that could provide an extra motive that the other Elitists in this match lack. If so, perhaps we could witness a #LexiSweep tonight!
Gavin Kirkland: #LexiSweep????????????? Who would say something like that?
(Lexi is seen sliding under the bottom rope, before she sits in the center of the ring on her knees. She looks up at Veena with hateful eyes, before bouncing up to her feet. She runs to the turnbuckles and climbs up, before posing once more. She smiles down the camera, before her theme song would then fade out. Eventually, ‘The Only Thing I Know For Real’ by Tyson Yen would hit the speakers, as ARIA would make her way out through the curtains, wearing a Jetstream Sam-inspired attire, also holding the Muramasa Blade in her hand. She would pose on the stage as the entire EAW audience hails down cheers, before she heads toward the ring.)
Gina Romano: Next, hailing from Chandler, Arizona… weighing in at 127 pounds… AAAAARRRRRRIIIIIIAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!
Gavin Kirkland: Combine 3 of these Elitists’ ring names and you can make one full name!
Eve: Speaking of newcomers to this company, ARIA has absolutely had one of the most impressive newcomer seasons out of all of them! Just a few months into her career she found herself competing against Harper Lee for her Specialists Championship, and even though she came up unsuccessful, she proved herself in that match to be a credible opponent for anyone. Now, having squared off against multiple top-tier names, including Hall of Famers, this could be ARIA’s big moment to shine as she looks to pick up a huge victory here at the show of shows, Pain For Pride 15!
(ARIA would walk up the steel steps, before swiftly entering the ring. She bounces up to the top rope, before aiming the blade down the camera lens. She would then drop down into the ring, before sliding the blade carefully underneath the bottom rope. Removing her jacket, she would run her hands through her tied-back hair, before her theme song eventually fades out. Seconds later, ‘Hey Superstar’ by Madina Lake would play through the speakers, to a mixed reaction – though it should be noted there are more cheers than boos. Walking through the curtains in a white-and-red attire, “The Killjoy” Sierra would squat down on the stage, before posing down the camera lens, that eventually pans back down the ramp as pyro shoots down it. Sierra would stand up, before walking down the ramp.)
Gina Romano: Lastly, hailing from San Jose California, weighing in at 121 pounds… “THE KILLJOY”… SIIIIEERRRRAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!
Deadprez: For those unfamiliar with Sierra, she has admitted on several occasions that this season has not gone her way in the slightest. She expected everything to be entirely different, but alas it didn’t go that way. She has had multiple Championship opportunities, that were unsuccessful, however she believes that she can turn it around at any given moment. Her in-ring prowess has always been on full display, and tonight, there’s no doubt that if she picks up a victory, it could change the trajectory of her career entirely. That’s what is important to her, after all!
(Sierra would climb up onto the apron, before staring across the ring at all of her opponents, bloodlust in her eyes as she knows the lengths she will have to go through in order to pick up a victory. Tonight is the night she looks to make herself a star, and the whole world knows it. She would enter the ring, leaving no time to showboat, as she walks into her corner and waits for the bell…)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Gavin Kirkland: OH MY! THE FATAL PAWG WAY HAS STARTED – I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHO TO ROOT FOR!
Deadprez: Control yourself.
Eve: He is right about one thing, though, this match is underway; and these four competitors are not starting off slow! All four of them charge to the center of the ring and begin to brawl, with Veena and ARIA trading punches, while Lexi and Sierra fight with forearms! These four Elitists aren’t holding back as they look to incapacitate their opponents early on, undoubtedly making sure that they all wake up with black eyes tomorrow night in their hotel rooms – however, only one of these four will be able to say that black eye was worth the trouble, where all the others will be left staring at it like a flaw in the mirror!
Deadprez: ARIA now continues her punches, as she begins to push Veena backward toward the turnbuckles! ARIA repeatedly punches Veena in her head, and Veena has now retreated into a defensive position, using her hands to cover up her head, yet she’s not successful in blocking all of these strikes! ARIA continues to punch, and now Veena starts to slide down into a seated position leaning against the bottom turnbuckle! ARIA unloads some mudhole stomps in the corner now, making sure that Veena Adams doesn’t move from her seated position! Look at Sierra and Lexi now!
Gavin Kirkland: OH MY THIS IS AMAZING! Lexi’s kewt little shorts, Sierra’s bod-
Gavin Kirkland: I mean… Sierra gains the upper hand with those forearms, as Sexy Lexi is backed off into the corner just like I want her to back off into me! Sierra, much like ARIA, begins to rain down punches on Lexi who is now entering a defensive position! It isn’t working like it didn’t work for Veena though, and now Sierra starts to connect with some mudhole stomps in the corner, making sure she doesn’t move from the corner, making Veena and Lexi sat down completely across from each other! Oh boy, let me cut a rabbit hole in the center of the ring, I’m sure Veena and Lexi will love to play Whack-A-Gavin!
Eve: Sierra and ARIA turn around, noticing each other, but more importantly noticing the two Elitists sitting in the corner! Sierra and ARIA look back and forth, before the two sprint toward each other… no wait, they run PAST each other! The two run to the grounded Elitists in the corner, before leaping into the air… ARIA connects with a huge hesitation dropkick, while Sierra takes a different approach with the corner meteora! Veena Adams and Lexi both just got laid out completely! Two corner moves that probably has Gavin foaming from the mouth, for some reason!
Deadprez: But wait a second! This comes to show that Sierra isn’t to be trusted, because the second ARIA steps away from the corner Sierra is quick to ground her with a running yakuza kick! ARIA didn’t expect it, and she slaps hard against the mat! Cover!
Deadprez: But it doesn’t go much further than a one count, which should’ve been obvious. The way I see it, Sierra is forcing ARIA to use as much energy as she possibly can before she looks to connect with some big moves! This couldn’t be more evident, as Sierra now gets back to her feet, before she looks to hit the ropes! Running back to ARIA with a penalty kick… DENIED! ARIA ducks underneath it, before nailing Sierra with a precisely timed School Boy Roll Up, the leverage pin in play!
Eve: Another kick out, this time from Sierra, before they both return to their feet! Sierra throws a roundhouse kick to ARIA’s head, which is ducked, before ARIA connects with a superkick- but Sierra sidesteps! Sierra grabs ARIA by the waist, dragging her to the center of the ring, looking to connect with a huge German Suplex- only to be hit with a back elbow strike directly to the jaw! ARIA looks to hit the ropes- but wait! Sierra grabs her by the trunks, and pulls her straight back into the German Suplex position! And it connects, brutally!
Gavin Kirkland: SWITCH TO THE CAMERA POINTING TO THE RING MAT, WE NEED TO SEE THE WHOLE THING WHEN SHE GRABBED HER TRUNKS! Rats, it’s not gonna happen :noah:! ARIA is drilled directly onto her head with that German Suplex, and the whiplash sends her rolling to the outside! Sierra begins to recover back to her feet, which I’m sure-
Deadprez: Don’t say anything gross.
Gavin Kirkland: Ok nvm. Sierra begins to recover back to her feet, as she stares to the outside of the ring, looking to hit a suicide dive on ARIA! Sierra starts to hype herself up, before turning around to hit the ropes… WAIT! HERE COMES LEXI! SHE LEAPS INTO THE AIR AND WRAPS HER LUSCIOUS LEGS AROUND SIERRA’S HEAD, AND HITS A HURRICANRANA! ME NEXT! THE HEADSCISSORS TAKES SIERRA DOWN TO THE GROUND, FORCING HER TO SCRAMBLE BACK TO HER FEET! Sierra rests against the ropes, as Lexi comes in quickly with a huge step-up knee strike to the jaw, stunning Sierra momentarily! Lawd this is the match of the night already, that camera shot was amazing! I have truly won.
Deadprez: Sierra drops down to a knee, only for Lexi to hit a kick directly to the jaw which forces her to stand back up to her feet! Sierra is stumbling around on her feet, before Lexi kicks her in the gut once again! Lexi grabs her by the head, before hitting a huge snap suplex, which sends Sierra rolling to the outside next to ARIA, who is leaning on the barricade! Lexi is now setting up a suicide dive of her own, looking to charge against the ropes, before diving out of the ring in order to hit Sierra and ARIA, high risk high reward! Lexi turns around, and hits the ropes-
Eve: BUT VEENA CONNECTS WITH A CARTWHEEL KICK TO LEXI, TAKING HER TO THE GROUND! Veena bided her time in the corner and just waited to strike, and it went over well! Lexi tries to crawl back over to the ropes, however Veena grabs her by the hair, and drags her away from the ropes! A disrespectful way to move Lexi, Veena grabs her by the waist, looking to hit a German Suplex much like Sierra did earlier! It almost connects, however Lexi is able to backflip out of it! She stumbles on her feet but manages to land it, and she then turns around for a moonsault!
Deadprez: BUT VEENA GETS THE KNEES UP! Lexi is completely winded, as she bounces straight off of Veena! Veena quickly recovers to her feet, before grabbing Lexi by the waist and placing her in a pumphandle position! She lifts Lexi into the air… BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A HUGE PUMPHANDLE SIT-OUT FACEBUSTER, RIGHT INTO THE CENTER OF THE RING! SHE FORCED LEXI TO PERFORM A BACKFLIP INTO THE AIR, BEFORE TURNING IT INTO A SIT-OUT FACEBUSTER, ALMOST SPIKING HER ON HER HEAD! VEENA ADAMS QUICKLY SHOOTS THE HALF AND HOOKS THE LEG FOR HER FIRST COVER OF THE MATCH!
Eve: But Lexi with the kick out! She is able to pop the shoulder up just as the second count hits the mat! Good instincts from Lexi here tonight, however, Veena Adams isn’t just going to sit back and allow her to recover, as she then grabs Lexi by the jaw, and lifts her off her feet! She slams Lexi against the ropes, where Sierra and ARIA are on the outside, before turning around! Veena hits the ropes from the opposite side of the ring, looking to clothesline Lexi over- BUT LEXI IS ABLE TO CONNECT WITH A BACK BODY DROP, SENDING VEENA CRASHING INTO SIERRA AND ARIA!
Gavin Kirkland: Bah gawd, this match has spilled to the outside already, this could be absolutely hectic! After all this is a fatal four way match, meaning anything goes. No disqualifications, count outs, or anything of the sort; this could get brutal. I’m getting excited just thinking about all of the things that could happen :mjlit:. That wasn’t an innuendo I promise, I am just a big fan of Hardcore matches after Limommy did the work, innovation.
Deadprez: Lexi fully recovers to her feet in the ring, as she looks to the outside, just waiting for all three Elitists to get back up to their feet, before she can finally complete her dive to the outside! We see Sierra pick herself up slowly, holding onto her ribs almost as if she had the wind knocked directly out of her. Before long, here comes ARIA holding onto her elbow. And finally Veena, who is leaning against the barricade facing away from the camera! Lexi gets ready to charge, as she leaps on the spot… before hitting the ropes… Lexi with the suicide dive out of the ring!
Eve: OH GOD! WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT??? DID VEENA ADAMS JUST THROW A TIRE AT LEXI’S HEAD IN MID-AIR???
Deadprez: THAT SEEMS LIKE IT, EVE, BECAUSE SHE JUST GOT ABSOLUTELY FOLDED BEFORE SHE COULD HIT EITHER SIERRA OR ARIA! SHE COMPLETELY CRASHES TO THE MAT IN UTTER PAIN, WHILE VEENA LAUGHS AT HER! I’M SURE THAT’S A MOMENT THAT’LL BE REMEMBERED FOR QUITE A LONG TIME, ESPECIALLY WITH ALL OF THE YOUNG FANS IN THE ARENA WHO GO HOME AND TRY THIS IN THEIR COUSINS BEDROOM! I MEAN, THAT’S WHAT I DID AS A KID AFTER ALL!
Gavin Kirkland: NOOOO, NOT LEXI! SHE NEEDS THAT PRETTY FACE FOR WHEN I SLIDE IN HER DMS PRETENDING TO BE LIMMY! Oh well, one tire shot can’t be too bad.
(Veena picks up the tire once more.)
Gavin Kirkland: GOD DAMN IT! VEENA THROWS THE TIRE INTO LEXI’S TORSO, BEFORE IT ROLLS AWAY! THIS MATCH REALLY IS GETTING OUT OF HAND! DISREGARD WHAT I SAID ABOUT WEAPONS, PURE WRESTLING ONLY! YOU HEAR ME!? PURE WRESTLING- OH NO THEY’RE NOT GOING TO LISTEN TO ME! FUCK!
Deadprez: If I wanted a win at Pain For Pride, I wouldn’t listen to you either! ARIA grabs Sierra, and throws her head-first into Veena Adams making their heads collide, before they both tumble to their knees! ARIA looks underneath the ring, before grabbing a steel chair! Who knows what she’s going to do with that??? Besides swinging it of course! ARIA lifts that steel chair behind her shoulder, before swinging it down, hitting both Sierra AND Veena in the head with it in one swing! They both tumble down to the ground, prior to ARIA sliding the chair inside of the ring! ARIA is about to continue damage right here, as she grabs onto Veena’s head, and throws her into the ring!
Eve: ARIA quickly slides in from behind, though, while Veena is barely moving in the center of the ring! That unexpected chair shot really did a number on her, and I wouldn’t be surprised if any of these Elitists expected to be using weapons tonight! Fatal Four Way matches don’t frequently bust them out, but right here tensions are high as they all desire a Free-Per-View victory at Pain For Pride! ARIA is displaying this like no other, as she starts to lift Veena up from the mat! She’s going to put that chair to good use!
Gavin Kirkland: ARIA places Veena’s head in between her legs, before placing her hands around her waist! She’s looking to hit that ‘Glitch in the Matrix’ Belly to Back Mat Slam, and by the looks of it, she’s aiming Veena in the direction of that solid steel chair! ARIA lifts Veena up off the ground, but Veena kicks her feet down! A punch to the gut from Veena! And again! She looks to fight out of it- BUT IS LIFTED UP REGARDLESS! ARIA STEPS OVER THE ARMS, BEFORE CONNECTING WITH THE ‘GLITCH IN THE MATRIX’ RIGHT ON THE STEEL CHAIR! INTO THE COVER!
Deadprez: Kick-out from Veena! Veena Adams pushes her feet into the air, which makes her able to lift her body off the mat by just a few inches, effectively breaking the pressure that had her in the cover to begin with! ARIA rolls away from Veena, before using the turnbuckles to push her up to her feet! She walks back towards the chair, before kicking it toward the corner! That weapon didn’t do her too amazingly but I’m sure she has more than one idea-
Eve: OH! BUT LEXI FROM BEHIND WITH A LIGHT TUBE TO ARIA’S BACK! THAT’S CERTAINLY NOT GOOD NEWS FOR ARIA, AS THAT GLASS SMASHES ALL OVER HER BACK, WITH SHARDS GETTING SO SMALL THAT THEY LOOK ALMOST AS IF THEY WERE PIECES OF DUST FLOATING IN THE AIR! ARIA DROPS TO HER KNEES, AS BLOOD STARTS TO TRICKLE FROM HER BACK! IT’S NO SURPRISE THAT LEXI ISN’T ALL RIGHT IN THE HEAD, BUT BRINGING A LIGHT TUBE INTO THIS MATCH IS NEXT LEVEL INSANITY! LEXI PUSHES ARIA ONTO HER BACK, AND THEN SLIPS DOWN INTO A COVER POSITION!
Deadprez: SIERRA WITH A RAZORBLADE 2X4 TO LEXI’S LEG! HOLY SHIT, IT’S FUCKING STUCK IN THERE! THE RAZOR BLADES HAVE GONE STRAIGHT THROUGH HER SOCKS, RIGHT INTO HER SHIN! BLOOD SPIRTS OUT AND COVERS THE GROUND, AND SHE SCREAMS IN PAIN! SIERRA TRIES TO UN-STICK THAT 2X4, EVENTUALLY PULLING IT OUT, BUT THE DAMAGE IS ALREADY DONE! SIERRA COULD HAVE JUST MANGLED THAT LEG!
Gavin Kirkland: AND SHE’S NOT GOING TO FINISH THERE! SHE GRABS LEXI BY THE ANKLE, BEFORE WRAPPING HER OWN LEG AROUND HERS! SIERRA DROPS DOWN AND LOCKS IN THE CALF CRUSHER, BLOOD GOING ALL OVER HER WHITE AND RED SHINGUARDS, MAKING IT PURELY RED! LEXI COULD BE FORCED TO TAP OUT HERE, AND SIERRA COULD COME OUT VICTORIOUS!
Eve: YOU’RE ABSOLUTELY CORRECT GAVIN, THERE’S NO WAY SHE ISN’T IN INTENSE PAIN AT THIS MOMENT! MIND NUMBING PAIN! PAIN THAT NOBODY SHOULD FEEL IN A MILLION YEARS, AND WE’RE WITNESSING HER EXPERIENCE THIS KIND OF PAIN RIGHT HERE! THIS IS NOT GOOD IN THE SLIGHTEST FOR LEXI, AS SHE IS COMING SO CLOSE TO TAPPING OUT! HER HAND IS HOVERING OVER THE MAT AS WE SPEAK!
Deadprez: THIS COULD BE ALL OVER FOR LEXI HERE TONIGHT, AS SHE IS MOMENTS AWAY FROM SUBMITTING! IF SHE DOES WE COULD BE WITNESSING A HUGE VICTORY FOR SIERRA HERE TONIGHT – A VICTORY AT PAIN FOR PRIDE, REGARDLESS OF THE MATCH, IS A HUGE DEAL FOR ANY ELITIST, AND SHE’S LOOKING TO CAPITALIZE ON THAT OPPORTUNITY! WE SAW HER ATTEMPTS AT CAPITALIZING AS SHE BUSTED OUT HER FAVORITE WEAPON STRAIGHT INTO LEXI’S SHIN, AND NOW SHE IS BUSTING OUT A MOVE NOT OFTEN FAMILIARIZED WITH HER, JUST TO TRY AND SUBMIT HER! IT COULD ALL BE OVER FOR THIS MATCH! SIERRA IS ABOUT TO PICK UP A HUGE VICTORY HERE TONIGHT!
Eve: TWISTED VEENA TO SIERRA! VEENA ADAMS BROKE UP THE SUBMISSION IN THE MOST AMAZING WAY SHE POSSIBLY COULD! VEENA COULD’VE JUST TAKEN THE VICTORY HERE, AS SHE QUICKLY COVERS!
Gavin Kirkland: KICK OUT FROM SIERRA! SHE IS ABLE TO KICK OUT OF ONE OF HER SIGNATURE MANEUVERS, POPPING THAT SHOULDER UP JUST IN TIME, RIGHT BEFORE WE SEE THE THREE-COUNT! VEENA ADAMS IS PISSED OFF AS SHE EXPECTED THAT TO BE THE FINISH! SHE THOUGHT SHE HAD IT WON, AND NOW SHE SLAMS HER FIST INTO THE MAT! SHE’S MALDING RIGHT NOW!
Veena Adams: (off-mic) Stop trying to be better than you are, Sluterra Bitchford!
Eve: Veena slaps Sierra in the head, that is extremely disrespectful! It looks as if Veena wants to end Sierra here, as she rolls Lexi out of the ring! Veena Adams has Sierra in her sights, as she looks to head up to the top rope! The ‘Leave You Breathless’ Diving Double Foot Stomp is what she indefinitely has in mind here tonight, and we could very well be witnessing the end of the match! Veena Adams perches herself on the top turnbuckle, staring down at Sierra’s prone body, before she leaps high into the air… ‘LEAVE YOU BREATHLESS’ CONNECTS!
Deadprez: SIERRA GETS A BOOT UP RIGHT INTO HER EYE AFTER MOVING OUT OF THE WAY! VEENA FALLS STRAIGHT ONTO HER ASS, AS SIERRA PUSHES HERSELF UP OFF THE MAT! SIERRA GRABS VEENA BY HER HAIR, BEFORE TOSSING HER STRAIGHT INTO THE TURNBUCKLES! VEENA FALLS BACK STRAIGHT INTO A ‘SEROTONIN’ ROLLING ELBOW, WHICH MUST BE TRIGGERING SOME XANDER PAYNE-LEVEL CTE RIGHT NOW! THAT EXPOSED ELBOW RIGHT INTO THE BACK OF HER DOME KNOCKS HER TO HER KNEES!
Gavin Kirkland: SIERRA THEN GRABS VEENA BY THE HEAD, LOOKING TO SET UP THAT ‘PRIMA DONNA’ SLICED BREAD #2! SHE RUNS UP THE TURNBUCKLES… AND IT CONNECTS! SHE PLANTS VEENA WITH ‘PRIMA DONNA’ RIGHT INTO THE MAT! COVER!
Eve: LEXI AND ARIA PULL BOTH COMPETITORS UNDER THE BOTTOM ROPE BEFORE THE FIRST COUNT CAN EVEN OCCUR!
Gavin Kirkland: ARIA GRABS VEENA BY THE HAIR, BEFORE TOSSING HER OVER THE BARRICADE! SO DOES LEXI! THE TWO ELITISTS THEN HOP OVER THE BARRICADE, AS THEY BEGIN TO FIGHT IN THE CROWD! THEY START TO PUNCH VEENA AND SIERRA, FORCING THEM TO STUMBLE BACKWARD! BUT NEITHER OF THEM HAVE ANYWHERE TO GO, AS THEY’RE BACKED OFF INTO THE LARGE LED PILLAR THAT READS PAIN FOR PRIDE!
Deadprez: LEXI GRABS SIERRA BY THE EARS, BEFORE PULLING HER CLOSER! LEXI IS BARELY ABLE TO STAND RIGHT NOW, BUT THAT DOES NOT MATTER, AS SHE GOES FOR THAT STANDING SHIRANUI! ‘FOH’ CONNECTS, DRIVING SIERRA INTO THE CONCRETE FLOOR!
Eve: VEENA THROWS ARIA FACE-FIRST INTO THE LED PILLAR, BEFORE CHARGING TOWARDS LEXI! SHE BEGINS TO CONNECT WITH NUMEROUS FOREARM STRIKES, STUNNING LEXI IN THE PROCESS! ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FOUR FOREARM STRIKES, BEFORE LEXI HAS ENOUGH AND BEGINS TO FIGHT BACK WITH HER OWN! THE TWO NOW TRADE FOREARM STRIKES IN THE CROWD, STUNNING ONE ANOTHER!
Gavin Kirkland: LET’S NOT FORGET SIERRA THOUGH! SHE WEAKLY GRABS ONTO VEENA AND LEXI’S TRUNKS, WHICH MAKES THEM STOP FIGHTING! THEY LOOK DOWN AT SIERRA, BEFORE BACK UP AT EACH OTHER… OH NO! THEY APPLY HER IN A FRONT FACELOCK POSITION, BEFORE CONNECTING WITH HUGE INNER FOREARMS TO HER SPINAL REGION! THEY’RE BRUTALLY ATTACKING SIERRA NOW, THIS HAS SPAWNED INTO ABSOLUTE CHAOS! VEENA AND LEXI BOTH DRILL ELBOWS INTO SIERRA’S HEAD ONE AFTER ANOTHER NOW! THESE TWO DISLIKE EACH OTHER, BUT I THINK THEY’VE JUST IGNORED THAT HATRED SO THEY CAN HURT SIERRA RIGHT NOW! I CAN’T TELL IF I LIKE OR HATE THIS!
(As Lexi and Veena punish Sierra, the camera pans over towards ARIA…)
Eve: UM GUYS??? WHY IS ARIA CLIMBING UP THE LED PILLAR, THE ONE THAT CONNECTS TO THE LIGHTS ABOVE THE RING, AS IF SHE WAS A DAMN SUPERHERO? SHE MUST BE 20 FEET IN THE AIR, IF NOT HIGHER RIGHT NOW, AS SHE PLACES HER FEET UP AGAINST THE LED BOARD! OH MY GOD SHE’S GOIGN TO JUMP OFF!
Deadprez: THERE’S NO WAY SHE CAN JUMP OFF! THAT’S HIGH RISK AT A COMPLETE OTHER LEVEL! THIS IS INSANE! SIERRA, VEENA AND LEXI LOOK UP AND NOTICE ARIA, BUT IT’S TOO LATE! SHE PUSHES HER FEET AND LEAPS… MOONSAULT!!!
Gavin Kirkland: ARIA JUST DID A FUCKING MOONSAULT OFF THE LED PILLAR, CRASHING INTO HER OPPONENTS AND TAKING ALL OF THEM OUT, INCLUDING HERSELF! ARIA MAY HAVE JUST CREATED A PAIN FOR PRIDE MOMENT RIGHT HERE! OH MY GOD!!!!!!
(The camera zooms out as all four Elitists are laying down on the mat in pain, Aria possibly having suffered quite a lot of damage herself due to the height she fell off, however, it may just be worth it to her as the entire arena goes crazy, chanting her name.)
Crowd: A-RI-A! :clap::clap::clap: A-RI-A! :clap::clap::clap: A-RI-A! :clap::clap::clap:
Eve: That was an absolutely insane manuever performed by The Sacred Detective here tonight at Pain For Pride, showcasing exactly what her first Pain For Pride match truly means to her! She just busted out one of the craziest things I have ever seen in my entire life, what a way to make a name for yourself here tonight! I don’t think there’s a single soul in this arena who isn’t completely shocked, stunned, yet impressed at the sheer daredevil-ality that ARIA has put on display!
Deadprez: I absolutely agree with you right here, that is some next-level Daredevil shit, and even though she’s now paying the price for it, that is what this event is all about – career-defining moments! If she will do that just to deal some damage, imagine what she’s willing to go through in order to pull out a victory! GG’s ARIA, what a moment!
(ARIA is seen holding onto her ribs, as she slowly begins to crawl to her knees. She’s barely able to move, using one arm along with her legs to drag her body back over to the barricade, over toward the ring.)
Gavin Kirkland: ARIA is making her way back over to the ringside area, however, Lexi is right behind her! I wouldn’t say this is the speediest of chases, however, I get to look at them on their knees so it’s all worth it. :mjlit:
Eve: Way to kill the hype.
(Lexi grabs ARIA by her hair, before slamming her head-first into the concrete, effectively cutting off her movement, attempting to gain the upper hand. Still covering up her shin due to the wounds suffered earlier, Lexi grabs ARIA by the arm, and lifts her up, before dumping her over the barricade. Lexi is BARELY able to pull herself up, however she climbs over, and trips to the ground. Lexi places her hand on top of the steel steps, pulling herself up, before an idea jumps directly into her brain…)
Eve: Oh no, I do NOT like that look on Lexi’s face right now! She has a sadistic smile on her face, awfully reminiscant of what it looks like when she comes up with another way to interact with Limmy Monaghan! Lexi grabs the steel steps by the holes in the sides, before lifting it up! Lexi pushes the steel steps into the ring, before grabbing ARIA–
Deadprez: NO! ARIA starts to fight back, laying in some punches to her gut, before throwing her head-first into the ring post! ARIA tosses Lexi underneath the bottom rope, before following behind her! She grabs Lexi by the head, before slamming it directly into the steel steps! This could’ve just completely backfired right here, as Lexi has been set up for something terrible! ARIA grabs her by the hair, before placing it in between her waist and arm, ready to lift her in the vertical suplex position! She drags her in the front face lock, before she starts to step up the steel steps, this could be bad! ARIA lifts Lexi up from the ground, after slinking her arm over her shoulders… AS SHE LOOKS TO HIT A BRAINBUSTER RIGHT ON TOP OF THOSE STEPS!
Gavin Kirkland: ‘FOH’!!!! LEXI TWISTS IN MID-AIR AND CONNECTS WITH THE SHIRANUI!!! ARIA JUST GOT FLATTENED ON THOSE STEPS, AS LEXI BOUNCES BACK INTO THE TURNBUCKLES! LEXI HAS IT WON! LEXI HAS IT WON! SHE CRAWLS OVER TO ARIA, AND PUSHES HER ONTO THE RING MAT! LEXI HAS IT WON RIGHT HERE! SHE HAS IT WON! LEXI SLOWLY DRAGS HERSELF OFF THE STEEL STEPS, USUALLY THIS MAY COST SOMEBODY THE MATCH, BUT ARIA WAS DRIVEN DIRECTLY INTO STEEL! THERE IS NO WAY LEXI HASN’T PICKED UP THE VICTORY! LEXI FLOPS ONTO THE RING MAT, BEFORE SLOWLY PLACING ONE ARM OVER ARIA’S CHEST, SHE’S GOING TO DO IT! SEXY LEXI WINS!
Gavin Kirkland: KICKOTUEDRUDFGHJDFGHGF
Eve: NO WAY! AFTER ALL OF THAT, ARIA STILL FINDS A WAY TO POP HER SHOULDER UP OFF THE MAT, THAT’S CRAZY! EAW MUST BE FEEDING THESE ELITISTS STEROIDS IN THE MEALS AT CATERING BEFORE THE SHOW, BECAUSE AT THIS POINT, THEY HAVE TO BE SUPERNATURAL TO BE DISPLAYING THIS LEVEL OF RESILIANCE! IT IS JUST UNHEARD OF HOW CRAZY THEY ACTUALLY ARE!
Deadprez: ARIA MAY HAVE JUST USED THE LAST OF HER ENERGY TO KICK OUT OF THAT MOVE, BUT SHE’S STILL FIGHTING! THIS IS SUPER SOLDIER-LEVEL HEART AND SOUL!
Gavin Kirkland: Lexi, on the other hand, is just as pissed off as we saw Veena Adams become earlier on in the match! She’s not too happy about what just happened, not in the slightest! Lexi slams her hand into the ring mat, before mounting ARIA just like I hope she mounts me! Lexi starts to rain down punches right into her head, making sure ARIA stays down and does not recover! Lexi stands back up, hobbling on one leg, though she powers through it! She stomps on ARIA’s stomach, doing even more damage to her, before lifting her up off the mat!
Eve: Lexi chops ARIA in the chest, before resting her up against the ropes! She uses that leverage to pull her up on her shoulders! She lifts ARIA up in a fireman’s carry position, looking to finish this matchup! Lexi carries her closet to the senter of the ring, however ARIA tries to fight back even though she’s completely tired! These elbows feel effortless, and not in the way you’d hope. Lexi turns around looking towards the turnbuckles- WHAT THE??
Eve: NO WAY! VEENA ADAMS JUST ROLLED INTO THE RING, AND THREW FIRECRACKERS AT LEXI’S FACE! THEY POPPED RIGHT IN HER EYES, AND SHE FALLS STRAIGHT DOWN TO THE GROUND IN PAIN! VEENA ADAMS WAITS FOR THE FIRECRACKERS TO STOP POPPING, BEFORE SLIDING INTO THE COVER!
Eve: SIERRA BREAKS IT UP! SHE LEAPS ONTO THE COVER, BEFORE SHE AND VEENA FALL OUT OF THE RING AND HIT THE MAT! SHE BROKE IT UP AT THE LAST SECOND, BUT ENDED UP CRASHING TO THE OUTSIDE!
Deadprez: Veena Adams is knocked out it seems, but Sierra is getting back up! She goes to enter the ring- But a dropkick from ARIA sends her stumbling back to the announce table! ARIA exits the ring, before moving over to Sierra! She hits a forearm, stumbling forward to do it- NO! ROLLING KOPPU KICK FROM SIERRA, ‘ELECTRIC FEEL’ CONNECTS! SIERRA KNOCKS ARIA DOWN, BUT SHE’S NOT DONE! SHE GRABS HER BY THE HAIR AND LIFTS HER UP, BEFORE THROWING HER ON TOP OF THE SPANISH ANNOUNCE TABLE! OH NO! THIS CAN’T BE GOOD, SIERRA ENTERS THE RING!
Gavin Kirkland: WHY NOT OUR TABLE BRO??? UGH! SIERRA CLIMBS UP TO THE TOP ROPE, LOOKING TO THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING… AND SHE JUMPS! SOMERSAULT SENTON THROUGH THE TABLE! ARIA AND SIERRA HAVE BOTH BEEN TAKEN OUT COMPLETELY!
Eve: WAIT! HERE COMES LEXI! SHE’S KEEPING THIS MATCH MOVING AT A FAST PACE, AND ISN’T LETTING EITHER WOMAN RECOVER! SHE SPRINTS OVER AND GRABS SIERRA, BEFORE THROWING HER INTO THE RING!
Deadprez: LEXI SLIDES INTO THE RING BEHIND SIERRA, JUST AFTER SHE WENT THROUGH THE TABLE ALONGSIDE ARIA, PERFORMING AN AMAZING SOMERSAULT SENTON! LEXI RESTS IN THE CORNER, WAITING FOR SIERRA TO GET TO HER KNEES! BUT I THINK IT’S GOING TO TAKE A WHILE, SIERRA IS NEARLY UNCONSCIOUS!
(Sierra attempts to push herself up to her feet, but her arms are too weak, everything has been taken out of her. She looks up at Lexi, while on her knees, before giving her the middle finger…)
Eve: THAT WAS NOT VERY INVITING FROM SIERRA, IF SHE’S GOING TO GO OUT SHE’S GOING TO DO IT WITH NO FUCKS GIVEN! SHE YELLS CURSE WORDS AT LEXI-
Gavin Kirkland: Q;LJSFD; LJFDGSHJK;LDFGSKHJGDFKHJLDFGHKJLDFGSSHKJSSDFGSSSHJKFDSGJ;HKLDFSGHKJSDFGKHJDFG
Gavin Kirkland: ‘MURDER TO EXCELLENCE’!!!! LIMOMMY’S BICYCLE KNEE STRIKE, LEXI LAYS OUT SIERRA WITH IT!!!!
Deadprez: IT SEEMS LEXI HAS BEEN WATCHING ONE TOO MANY LIMMY MONAGHAN MATCHES, SHE REALLY IS A STALKER! SHE JUST LAID OUT SIERRA WITH HIS SIGNATURE MANEUVER, AND BECAUSE OF IT, BLOOD BEGINS TO TRICKLE DOWN FROM SIERRA’S NOSE! IT MAY BE FUCKING BROKEN! LEXI TUMBLES TO THE GROUND FOLLOWING THAT KNEE STRIKE, BUT THERE’S NO WAY IN HELL SHE’S DONE! SHE STARTS TO CRAWL OVER TO HER OPPONENT, GRABBING HER BY THE HAIR, BEFORE LEXI TRIES TO STAND BACK UP ON HER OWN TWO FEET! LEXI IS LOOKING TO FINISH THIS MATCH! LEXI IS LOOKING TO PICK UP A MAJOR VICTORY AT PAIN FOR PRIDE, AND SHE’S LOOKING TO DO IT AT SIERRA’S EXPENSE! LEXI STARTS TO PICK HERSELF UP FROM THE MAT!
Eve: IT’S OBVIOUS SHE IS LOOKING TO CONNECT WITH THAT STANDING SHIRANUI ONCE MORE, THE MOVE SHE HIT ON ARIA, THE ONLY DIFFERENCE HERE IS THAT SIERRA IS MUCH MORE HURT THAN ARIA WAS EARLIER! IF IT CONNECTS THERE’S ABSOLUTELY NO DOUBT THAT IT’S ALL GOING TO BE OVER! THERE’S NO DOUBT THAT LEXI IS GOING TO FINISH IT RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW! LEXI HOOKS SIERRA BY THE HEAD, AND TURNS AROUND, BEFORE LEAPING IN THE AIR… ‘FOH’ CONNECTS ONCE AGAIN! IN THE CENTER OF THE RING THIS TIME, ABSOLUTELY NO DELAY! LEXI HAS THIS ONE IN THE BAG, AS SHE SLIDES INTO THE COVER!
Deadprez: ‘FATAL VOW’!!! MOONSAULT DOUBLE FOOT STOMP FROM VEENA!
Gavin Kirkland: OH MY GOD! VEENA ADAMS JUST LEAPED OFF THE TOP ROPE, PERFORMING THAT MOONSAULT DOUBLE FOOT STOMP RIGHT THROUGH LEXI’S STOMACH, BREAKING UP THE PINFALL EFFECTIVELY WITH HER FINISHING MOVE! SHE DID A SIMILAR TACTIC EARLIER ON IN THE MATCH, BUT PERHAPS SHE LEARNED FROM HER MISTAKES, AND BUSTED OUT SOMETHING MORE EFFECTIVE! VEENA ADAMS GETS ON HER HANDS AND KNEES AND CRAWLS OVER TO HER OPPONENT, HOOKING THE LEG OF LEXI! VEENA HAS IT WON AS SHE ENTERS THE COVER, VEENA HAS IT WON!
Deadprez: ARIA CRAWLING IN THROUGH THE ROPES FROM THE OUTSIDE AFTER THAT HUGE BUMP TRYING TO BREAK THE COUNT!!!!!!!
Eve: ARIA IS ALMOST THERE! SHE NEEDS TO GET ENOUGH STRENGTH…. CAN SHE DO IT!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: SHE IS TOO LATE! ARIA IS TOO LATE!!!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Gina Romano: HERE IS YOUR WINNER… VEEEEENNNAAAAAAA AADAAAAAAAMS!!!
(‘7 Rings’ by Ariana Grande hits the speakers, as the entire audience rips into a chorus of boos. With her hair all messed up, extremely tired, Veena Adams rolls off of Lexi, with a huge grin on her face after hearing her name called out. The camera pans to a shot of displeased fans, before cutting back to Veena who is trying to pull herself back up. With assistance from the referee, she gets to her feet and her hand is raised; though she doesn’t want the referee’s grubby mitts to touch her for much longer, so she yanks her hand away.)
Eve: WOW! What a Thursday, and now Friday for the Adams family! Despite what Veena thinks of Kass, these past few days have been fantastic for both her, Kassidy, and DEDEDE as we saw him defeat the greatest Elitist in history earlier tonight! On a serious note, what a victory for Veena Adams here though! Especially at Pain For Pride! Having inducted Charlie Marr into the Hall of Fame just 24 hours ago, she is now picking up a victory against 3 other Elitists at the show of shows!
Deadprez: Absolutely, Eve! Veena Adams may have just had the greatest few nights of her life, and I’m sure she’s going to celebrate it well! Everybody is booing her, but she does not care, because she picks up a VERY impressive victory at the show of shows here tonight! Veena ends the season with a much-needed victory, putting a stop to her opponents’ hopes and dreams of picking up a victory at this illustrious event! Congratulations Veena!
(Veena Adams is shown celebrating with her arm raised, before she slowly climbs to the top rope. ARIA barely able to stand, looking up while Lexi lies there trying to catch her breath, Sierra leaning against the bottom rope upset. The grin never having leaving Veena’s face, she spreads her arms to the side while ‘7 Rings’ continues to blast through the speakers. The camera would soon fade to darkness, cutting to commercial break.)
(A commercial for Morbius’ new re-release plays, where it no longer flops at the box office, because Ronan spent one Morbillion Dollars for a ticket!)
(The show back stage as we see a familiar face strutting backstage.)
???: IM WALKING ON SUNSHINE! WOAH! And don’t I look good!
(Wearing a Tommy Bahama floral shirt, white linen “hoochie daddy” shorts, Fucci loafers, and a bedazzled cane…it’s Ronan Malosi. Ronan is all confidence as he smoothly bounces around backstage while singing.)
Ronan Malosi: IM WALKING ON SUNSHINE! WOOOOAH! AND DONT HE LOOK GOOD!?!? Heck yeah! Where my Ronan Malosi Stans at! Stand up! Hey you…
(Ronan turns and sees a backstage worker who briefly pauses as he holds a clipboard and looks around before pointing at himself.)
Ronan Malosi: You hear me talking to you, peasant! I said stand up! I mean you’re already standing but are you standing up for your next Cash in the Vault winner? You know I’m better than Jay Jerry Johnson. I’ve made it obvious to the world how big of a coward Adam Lucas is. Meanwhile, this Jamoke is back here downplaying my stardom. How wack is that? I am absolutely sick of this behavior. We have to figure something out next season. All this player hating has to stop. NO MORE PLAYER HATING THE INTERNATIONAL TREASURE! THE MILLION DOLLAR MEGASTAR! RONAN MALOSI! Seriously. Enough is enough. Out of my way.
(Ronan shoulder bumps the crew member who bounces off Ronan like he got hit by a car.)
Ronan Malosi: IM WALKING ON SUNSHINE WOOOAAAAAH!!! AND RONAN’S LOOKING GOOD!!!! THIS IS MY WEEKEND, BABY!
(The sound of fans booing can be heard all over the building as Ronan arrogantly laughs his way around the arena.)
Ronan Malosi: You guys love me huh? Everyone in the building is chanting “Ma-LOOOOOOOOO-si” in Vegas! Sun City said we not player haters, oh yeah. History will be made as…OH MY GOD!
Crowd: FUCK YOU RONAN! clap clap clapclapclap FUCK YOU RONAN! clap clap clapclapclap
Ronan Malosi: “Good Luck to Ronan” chants breaking out all over Sin City! I’M WALKING ON SUNSHINE, WOAAAAAH…wow! Is that who I think it is? Jaden, you made it!!!
(The camera pans as we see a new face step into the frame. Very well built male with an all white bubble vest, a pair of denim jeans, and a very high blonde Mohawk. The man has black face paint and black sunglasses on as he clearly is the “Jaden” Ronan just spoke to.)
Ronan Malosi: My best friend forever is here in the flesh at PAIN FOR PRIDE!
Jaden: I’m so glad you reached out, Ronan. You are one of my good old friends in this business and though I didn’t quite make it to this stage as a performer I do appreciate that a connection I’ve made in this industry still worked out in my favor. I mean look at all this, I made it to Pain for Pride! My career as a pro wrestler is solidified not through my many independent successes but rather my friendship with you. The next Cash in the Vault winner…THEE RONAN MALOSI!
Ronan Malosi: :Kyrie: You know it’s all love brother man. I knew if you could have succeeded like I did you too might have done the same for me.
Jaden: Yeah that-
Ronan Malosi: I mean it’s obvious you couldn’t though. Not many could have came from where we’ve come from and be basically one of the most important Pain for Pride headliners. Sure we’ve got some big World title matches and tournament finales but we get ONE Cash in the Vault matches a season so that’s REALLY the top attraction when you think about it. Lucky for you, I was able to get you VIP access to the biggest show of the year. It’s tough being in the shadow of a big money, top draw attraction such as myself isn’t it? But luckily I’m a kind, caring megastar. Luckily for you I’m a benevolent icon. No need to say thanks either.
Jaden: Cool, because I-
Ronan Malosi: I mean, I did kind of have to stick my neck out for you. Went out of my way even because nobody here REALLY knows you at all despite you being so successful on the independent scene. It’s the least I could do, I guess. If you WANT to thank me you can.
Jaden: I don’t mind saying thank you, pal. I’m just glad you never forgot about me and-
Ronan Malosi: I-I mean…not to nitpick. Maybe you could punch up that thank you. Like say it like you are REALLY grateful. I mean, I got my boy Jaden at Pain for freaking Pride, man!
???: If he isn’t thankful, I’ll show you how thankful I am!
(Slowly walks in a racially ambiguous girl with a pink glow surrounding her. She has her phone in her hand as she is clearly on Instagram live recording her experiences backstage.)
Ronan Malosi: KENDALL! My baby! I’m so glad you made it too!
Jaden: What the fuck?
Kendall: You know I wouldn’t miss this all expenses paid, once in a lifetime wrestling experience with my not so secret admirer.
Jaden: Secret Admirer?!
Ronan Malosi: Ah you know the vibes, cutie pie. Money ain’t a thang for Big Money Malosi. How was the private jet?
Jaden: Private Jet?! I flew spirit!!!
Kendall: It was magical. It had a lot of pictures of Ryan Adams and his family and even had “KH” in the head rests and stuff too
Ronan Malosi: Oh my people were supposed to photoshop all that up for me. I paid big money for some quality photoshop graphics work and once again those peasants didn’t deliver. Was the PS5 at least on the plane?
Kendall: Yeah but it didn’t work anyway. Soon as I tried to cut on the Spiderman game inside it started smoking and nearly set the entire plane on fire.
Ronan Malosi: DAMN YOU FACEBOOK MARKETPLACE! Whatever, I’m so glad you’re here tonight!
Kendall: And I’m so glad you slid into my dms!
Jaden: WAIT A FUCKING MINUTE!
Ronan Malosi: What’s the matter big guy? Why the yelling?
Jaden: You sick son of a bitch!
Ronan Malosi: I beg your pardon?
Kendall: Oh hey, Jaden.
Ronan Malosi: Oh. OH WAIT! This looks messy.
Jaden: You lurch looking unwrapped mummy! You invited me out to belittle me AND not only did you fly out my ex girlfriend you try to parade her around in front of me like I’m some kind of CUCK?
Ronan Malosi: Woah, woah. Take it easy, Jaden. BFF remember?
Jaden: BFF my ass, Ronan.
Ronan Malosi: This is not what it seems. Not at all. Not one bit!
Jaden: Oh yeah explain it!
Ronan Malosi: I-I-I
Jaden: Stop stuttering you mentally disabled hunchback of Notre Dame stunt double and say what’s on your bald headed mind!
Ronan Malosi: Man…
(Jaden is sick of the stammering and grabs Ronan by his collar. Ronan is now completely flustered as he puts both hands up flinching at the cocked back fist of Jaden.)
Jaden: I’m waiting!
Kendall: Me too tbh.
(Kendall begins eyeing the muscles of Jaden as she is almost impressed at how easily he hems the Cash in the Vault participant up like he isnt a threat. Ronan begins sweating thru his expensive fake luxury clothes as he starts to speak again.)
Ronan Malosi: Geez Louise. I see how things look but let me explain.
Jaden: I’m waiting!
Ronan Malosi: I don’t really have a issue with you bud!
(Jaden looks over at Kendall who’s recording the entire thing on her phone and begins winking at him. Jaden let’s go of Ronan and backs away.)
Jaden: That’s all I needed to know.
Ronan Malosi: My good man what made you think we weren’t on good terms?
Jaden: You sliding into my ex-wife’s dm’s. You bringing us both out to this event… you flying her in private nets like you’re better than me. That’s about it. You have the biggest match of your life coming up yet you are out here trying to disrespect me? Claiming we are BFF but you clearly DTF my ex wife? I don’t think a guy like you needs more bad blood considering everyone in the CITV would love nothing more than to throw you into the third row off the ladder.
Ronan Malosi: Bro, c’mon. Bro it was just me fuckin around really I was in character. C’mon, J Dog. Don’t be a player hater.
Jaden: Nah explain to her what this was…Clearly she likes you… A
lot… We just had a major milestone last weekend
and yeah… would have been our anniversary…She wants you… Not me…SO… Do what you want.
Kendall: On second thought, let’s ditch this dweeb and start fresh, baby. Seeing you mandhandle this tricking goofball just did a lot for me just now.
Jaden: Oh yeah?
Kendall: Oh yeah.
Jaden: Good. Less ditch this zero and go live like heros.
(Jaden and Kendall both shove Ronan to the ground as Ronan is left with his mouth open shocked at what just happened.)
Ronan Malosi: Are you serious? My god…
Jaden: Good luck in the CitV, Ronan…maybe you’ll have a better chance in that than you had trying to get in my wife’s pants.
Ronan Malosi: I WAS IN CHARACTER, BRO! Jesus Christ.
(Ronan let’s out a depressed sigh as he looks down to the ground.)
Ronan Malosi: …I’m walking on sunshine…woah-oh…Jaden took my hoe…:francis:
DeadPrez: That boy Ronan needs to stop with the chicanery and buffoonery and get his head in the game!
Gavin Kirkland: Looks like he was trying to get the wrong head into something else. How unserious is he right now?
Eve: The fact that he heard the unmistakable sounds of these Las Vegas fans booing him and thought they were saying “Ma-LOOOOOOOOSI” is what took me out, honestly.
Gavin Kirkland: He almost got took out by his so called BFF over that Kendall chick. Gotta say…I understand why he flew this Kendall chick out. I’m not lying when I say I’d walk through 20 miles of glass and old screws just to smell what perfume she has on.
(The scene fades out with Ronan mouthing the word “RATS” as we transition elsewhere.)
(The camera cuts back to ringside where Bella Braxton is standing in the middle of the ring with a big smile on her face, ready to make the introductions for the next match.)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen, this next contest is scheduled for ONE FALL!
Crowd: ONE FALL!
(“All It Takes For Your Dreams to Come True” by A Skylit Drive starts playing throughout the arena as EAW Hall of Famer Amber Keys enters the arena to loud boos from the crowd. She has a poised and determined look on her face as she is strictly business here tonight as she makes her way to the ring.)
Bella Braxton: Introducing first! From the Bronx, New York! Weighing 135 pounds. Here is EAW HALL OF FAMER and “THE DIRTI DIVA” AMBER KEYS!
James Peters: Here comes one dangerous woman making her way down the entrance way here at Pain for Pride. To say the very least, this match has gotten so personal and it all started back at the Battle of Egypt event.
Persephone: Let me sum up what happened really quick for everyone. One old greedy bitch backstabbed another old greedy bitch leaving both old bags leaving with nothing. Not that they could remember they were fighting for something in the first place. They’re kinda losing it.
James Peters: Starting in early on these two aren’t you, Seph?
Persephone: Damn right I am. If I don’t, these two old geezers will fall asleep before I get to the good stuff.
Rich Russillo: This feud started when Amber Keys killed Madison Kaline’s chances of getting a title match and it’s been getting worse ever since. Madison attacked Amber the next week and then Amber evened things up when she attacked Madison from behind after they won a tag team match. They’ve waited long enough and now it’s time to let them fight.
(Amber yells at a few fans in the front row who have been trying to heckle her as she enters the ring. She takes a second to absorb the overwhelming jeers from the crowd before she takes her corner and her music ends. Seconds later, “O Fortuna” by Carl Orff starts playing throughout the area as Madison Kaline enters the arena to a mixed, but yet a little more positive reaction from the crowd as she makes her way to the ring.)
Bella Braxton: Introducing her opponent! From Tampa Bay, Florida! Weighing 120 pounds. Here is EAW HALL OF FAMER and “THE MISTRESS OF DEATH” MADISON KALINE!
Rich Russillo: Here comes Amber’s opposition making her way to the ring. Ever since returning to EAW, Madison has wanted to show the world that she’s still got it and she certainly does still got it.
Persephone: Got what? Cataracts? Old skank probably needs glasses and her walker. If Madison walks any slower to the ring, it’ll be Pain for Pride 32.
James Peters: Will you stop? Madison Kaline is a methodical competitor who has been dangerously close to becoming Universal Women’s Champion and she almost had another shot if it wasn’t for Amber.
Persephone: Good. Then let these two old dinosaurs fight to the death. They’re almost there so it’ll be a short match. How about after the match, these two battleaxes stay in Las Vegas. They can be showgirls for patrons who no longer care. :mjlol:
Rich Russillo: Madison Kaline is looking to right the wrongs that Amber has caused her since returning to EAW. Amber is looking to stick the final nail in the coffin of Madison’s career. Who will succeed? We’re about to find out.
(Madison gets in the ring and heads straight for Amber. Madison can’t wait to get her hands on Amber but the referee gets in front of the two before contact is made. Madison’s entrance music fades off as the referee tells both ladies to back up to their corners. The referee quickly checks both competitors before a fight breaks out and they call for the bell.)
(DING! DING! DING!)
James Peters: Here we go! The bell has rung AND THESE WOMEN JUST COULDN’T WAIT! DOUBLE LEG TAKEDOWN BY MADISON AND THESE TWO ARE BRAWLING! WE KNEW THESE TWO WANTED TO GET AT EACH OTHER BADLY!
Rich Russillo: Amber and Madison have found their way into the ropes and the referee is trying to break them apart. They’ve got to be the unluckiest person in the arena having to keep these two from killing each other.
Persephone: I like the sound of that. How about the referee just leaves and these two old bitties just fight to the death. I mean at their ages, they already have one foot in the grave anyway. Who’s with me!
James Peters: Nobody. The referee with some luck has both women out of the ropes and back into the middle of the ring. Now the ladies get a little more traditional with the lockup in the center of the ring, but Amber might be just a little stronger as she muscles Madison back towards the corner.
Persephone: That’s because the Dirti Dish Rag is wearing that Icy Hot cream on her back or something and the smell is getting Almost Death light headed. Now they are in the corner and the referee is trying to break them up. Oh come on! Let them fight for gawd’s sake and we can have a shorter match. Come on people.
James Peters: Referee is in between them trying to get a clean break between the two. Shockingly, we get a clean break and… NOPE! AMBER KEYS WITH A THUMB TO THE EYE OF MADISON! Madison trying to claw the sting out of her eyes–
Rich Russillo: BUT AMBER DOESN’T CARE! AMBER JUST SHOVED THE REFEREE OUT OF THE WAY AND IS JUST CLOBBERING THE HELL OUT OF MADISON! MADISON IS DOING WHATEVER SHE CAN TO BLOCK THE PUNCHES!
Persephone: How rude of that old lady to go for the eyes. Madison already has cataracts so why make her vision even worse. Don’t be trying to blind her. Actually that would backfire because if she can’t see, then she can smell that Icy Hot and get the shit beat out of her. I’m ok with it either way.
James Peters: Thank you, Persephone. Madison is down in the corner and AMBER HAS HER BOOT RIGHT IN MADISON’S THROAT! MADISON’S THROAT AND NECK ARE BEING CHOKED BETWEEN AMBER’S BOOT AND THE BOTTOM TURNBUCKLE!
Referee: (off-mic) Come on, Amber. Let it go. Let it go NOW! ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR!
Rich Russillo: Amber listens to the referee and breaks on four. Last thing she wants to do is get disqualified. Amber Keys pulls Madison back to her feet by the hair and pushes her back into the turnbuckles AND AMBER WITH A CHOP TO MADISON’S CHEST!
James Peters: Madison has been chopped yet one more time in the corner by Amber before snapmaring Madison to the mat. Amber gets on the second rope and has Madison primed for an impactful move–
Rich Russillo: AMBER JUMPS AND DELIVERS A MISSILE DROPKICK FROM THE SECOND ROPE! MADISON CAUGHT THAT RIGHT ON THE SPINE! SHE IS HOLDING HER BACK AS AMBER GOES FOR THE COVER!
Persephone: Shit! Madison kicks out. I mean yay. Madison kicks out so this match can continue. Hopefully Rex shows up sometime soon to make this more interesting, even if it’s just to sit here next to me at commentary.
Rich Russillo: I don’t even think Rex is in the building, but if you want I-
Persephone: Finish that sentence and I swear you will have no voice box when I’m done with you!
James Peters: Here we go! Amber once again with a handful of hair and drags her to the ropes. AMBER IS NOW CHOKING MADISON ACROSS THE MIDDLE ROPE! ONCE AGAIN THE REFEREE HAS TO INTERVENE!
Referee: (off-mic) I TOLD YOU ALREADY TO BREAK IT! ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR!
James Peters: Amber once again lets Madison go at four. Amber might be a Hall of Famer, but even Hall of Famers can get referees pissed off at them. She might be pushing her luck early.
Persephone: It’s Amber Keys, stupid! We know how she works. This bitch will use any underhanded trick in the book and there’s a lot in that old book of hers and some of them can’t be read because of all the dust covering them. But that doesn’t stop Dirti Bitch from dropping another knee on the back of Madison’s neck.
James Peters: Now Amber mounts Madison AND JUST STARTS THROWING LEFTS AND RIGHTS INTO MADISON’S FACE! MADISON DOING WHATEVER SHE CAN TO BLOCK BUT MOST OF THE PUNCHES ARE CATCHING HER!
Rich Russillo: Amber has had control for most of this match and it seems like she is just playing around with Madison. Madison down as Amber hits the ropes. AMBER GOING FOR A LEG DROP–
Persephone: But the old fart missed the leg drop! Bahahaha! That was hilarious! Good thing Amber got that titanium hip before she came back to EAW! Mistress of her own kind Madison rolled out of the way. She takes advantage of Amber being dumb and rolls her up.
James Peters: AMBER JUST GOT HER SHOULDER UP RIGHT BEFORE THREE! Amber can NOT be happy knowing that Madison just about stole a victory at Pain for Pride. Amber trying to get back to her feet AS MADISON GOES FOR A BULLDOG!
Rich Russillo: AMBER BLOCKS IT! AMBER WALKS MADISON OVER TO THE ROPES AND AMBER JUST FLIPS HER BACKWARDS AND SHE JUST CRASHED RIGHT ONTO THE FLOOR IN FRONT OF US! THAT WAS AN UGLY LANDING!
Persephone: Well, duh! She completely missed the apron and hit the floor. I just hope this match is close to over because there are vultures circling over the ring again. But knowing EAW, this match has a while to go. What in the hell is Amber planning on doing?
James Peters: Amber is getting herself psyched up as Madison slowly gets back to her feet. AMBER HITS THE FAR SIDE ROPES AND RUNS FULL SPEED BEFORE DIVING AND CATCHING MADISON WITH A BEAUTIFUL SUICIDE DIVE! MADISON’S BACK CRASHES AGAINST OUR ANNOUNCE TABLE!
Persephone: Hey! Watch it! This is not the place for you AARP age bitches! Don’t kill the announce table. Keep the action away from us.
Rich Russillo: Both women are down, but Amber is back up to her feet and she once again brings Madison back to her feet AND AMBER JUST USES MADISON LIKE A FRISBEE AND FLINGS HER ACROSS THE FLOOR BY THE HAIR! MADISON LANDS FACE FIRST TO THE FLOOR! THE CROWD IS LETTING AMBER HEAR IT!
James Peters: Neither of these women are exactly going to be voted Miss Popularity in the class votes, but it seems to me like the crowd is slightly leaning towards Madison Kaline. It might be a pick your poison scenario.
Persephone: If this truly was a pick your poison scenario, then we would have no match. But since we have to have this match continue, the referee count has started and if neither of these bitches listen, then we will have a double countout. That works for me. Ring the bell, ref.
James Peters: Amber heard the count as dashes into the ring at eight before rolling back outside the ring. That breaks the count and now the referee starts the count all over. Amber goes right back to Madison. Amber lifts her up AND SLAMS MADISON ACROSS THE TOP OF THE STEEL RING STEPS! SHOULDN’T THAT BE A DISQUALIFICATION RIGHT THERE?
Rich Russillo: I don’t think so, but if it is, I think with it being Pain for Pride, the referees might be inclined to give a little leeway during these matches. The referee’s count is back up to six as Amber rolls Madison back into the ring. Amber on the apron as she springboards! AMBER KEYS WITH A SPRINGBOARD ELBOW DROP! AMBER ONCE AGAIN GOING FOR THE COVER!
James Peters: MADISON KALINE KICKS OUT AT TWO! HER BACK MUST BE HURTING HER AFTER THAT SLAM ON THE STEP BUT AMBER IS UNRELENTING RIGHT NOW! Amber said she wanted to put the final nail in Madison’s coffin and she is doing a good job of it so far.
Persephone: It’d be easier if you just put a few big rocks on the coffins or take the batteries out of their electric wheelchairs. That way they would never get out or leave. Win win for me. Two less old bitches on the roster. Anyways, Amber McDirtiBitch lifts Madison Sardine to a sitting position before wrapping her arm around her neck.
Rich Russillo: Amber doing whatever she can to weaken Madison and this is certainly a way to do it by cutting off Madison’s oxygen supply. The referee asks Madison if she wants to give it up AND MADISON JUST GAVE THE REFEREE THE BIGGEST AND PROBABLY MOST INTIMIDATING GO TO HELL GLARE I’VE EVER SEEN!
Persephone: Now I feel insulted after that remark. I glare at the stupid referees all the time and have heard that once. Thanks a lot, asshole. I hope you choke to death along with the dumb bitches in the ring.
James Peters: BUT LOOK AT MADISON! MADISON KALINE IS STARTING TO FIGHT OUT OF IT AS BEST AS SHE CAN! MADISON TRYING TO GET THE MOMENTUM IN HER FAVOR AS SHE NOW ON HER KNEES! MADISON IS SLOWLY MAKING IT BACK TO HER FEET–
Rich Russillo: BUT AMBER KEYS CUTS HER OFF AT THE PASS WITH AN ELBOW TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD! Amber finishes pulling Madison back to her feet and whips her into the turnbuckle.
James Peters: Amber runs full speed to the turnbuckle BUT MADISON CATCHES HER WITH AN ELBOW RIGHT TO THE FACE! AMBER TRIES IT AGAIN BUT SHE IS MET WITH ANOTHER ELBOW! Amber is dazed and Madison runs out of turnbuckle AND TAKES AMBER DOWN WITH A HELL OF A SPEAR! WHAT A GREAT COUNTER!
Persephone: Either the elbow to the face or that spear had to have knocked Amber’s dentures loose. Should have used extra Poli-Grip for this match. Remember that there is no reward for returning the fake teeth back to the fake bitch.
Rich Russillo: MADISON HAS HAD ENOUGH AND SHE IS THROWING PUNCHES OF HER OWN IN AMBER’S FACE! NOW IT’S AMBER’S TURN TO BLOCK THE PUNCHES!
James Peters: Madison brings Amber back to her feet by her hair AND NOW IT’S AMBER’S TURN TO KNOW HOW IT FEELS TO BE THROWN AROUND THE RING BY THE HAIR! LOOK AT MADISON! SHE IS STARTING TO FIRE UP AND BUILD THAT MOMENTUM!
Persephone: No. No she isn’t. That’s just the extra vitamins and the Metamucil kicking in. I don’t know why she took them this late. Now she’ll never get to sleep on time. Amber is trying to recover, but Madison delivers a low dropkick into Amber’s face. The back of Amber’s head smacks against the bottom rope and now Mad Maddie is going for the cover.
James Peters: Amber grabs the bottom rope and that stops the pin attempt. Madison pulls Amber away from the ropes AND MADISON IS JUST SLAPPING AMBER RIGHT ACROSS THE FACE! MADISON IS PISSED AND SHE WANTS TO MAKE AMBER PAY!
Persephone: Yeah because matches can be won with an old bag temper tantrum throwing a bunch of bitch slaps to another old bag. They should have called this match “When the Home Attacks: Dueling Grannies”. :mjlol: I mean that moniker fits, doesn’t it?
Rich Russillo: That might just piss Amber off so Madison will have to do more than slap the shit out of her and I think she’s about to change up her attack. Madison brings Amber back to her feet and whips her to the ropes, BUT AMBER COUNTERS SENDING MADISON TO THE ROPES! Madison rebounds as Amber goes for a backbreaker, BUT NOW MADISON COUNTERS WITH A HEADSCISSORS SENDING AMBER FOR A RIDE!
James Peters: Amber Keys finds her way into the corner and Madison comes in looking for a clothesline, BUT AMBER SOMEHOW MANAGES TO LEAPFROG OVER MADISON AND LAND RIGHT BEHIND HER! BUT LOOK AT AMBER!
Rich Russillo: It looks like Amber might have tweaked her ankle on the landing. Now Amber is on the mat holding her ankle in pain as the referee goes to check on Amber. The referee tells Madison to back up–.
James Peters: MADISON RUNS IN AND DROPKICKS AMBER RIGHT IN THE FACE! SHE SAW THAT OLD TRICK FROM A MILE AWAY AND DID NOT FALL FOR THE INJURY FAKE OUT! Amber took a chance with that trick, but after being a group for so long, Madison knew that Amber could try and pull that stunt and it backfired on Amber.
Persephone: Why the hell was she even considering it in the first place? The Injury Fake Out trick might be even older than Madison and Amber combined. That might literally be the oldest trick in the book. Come on, you dumb bitches, stop going to the dried up well for your tricks and just beat the shit out of each other.
Rich Russillo: Madison still in control as she grabs Amber by the neck and takes her back down with a snap suplex. Madison doesn’t go for the cover as she again brings Amber back up to her feet and whips her to the corner.
James Peters: MADISON FULL SPEED AND SHE CONNECTS WITH A SHOULDER TACKLE IN THE CORNER! AMBER DOWN AND MADISON CLIMBS UP TO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE! MADISON MIGHT BE LOOKING FOR SOMETHING BIG! MADISON SETTING UP FOR THE SWANTON BOMB–
Rich Russillo: AMBER WAS PLAYING POSSUM! SHE SHAKES THE TOP ROPE AND MADISON DOESN’T HAVE A GOOD LANDING ON THE TOP TURNBUCKLE! NO ANKLES SPRAINED TODAY!
Persephone: That’s what an old bag over 100 gets for climbing to the top rope. Besides, it’s not like Madison hurt anything vital. Now look! Amber is climbing to the top rope. Great! Now the cleaning crew will have to clean the ropes because of all the dust. This match is boring and now disgusting. When will it end?
James Peters: When somebody gets pinned or submits, so now just shut up for a second. Amber Keys has Madison right where she wants her. AMBER GOING FOR A TOP ROPE HURRICANRANA–
Rich Russillo: MADISON MANAGES TO TRIP UP AMBER AND NOW AMBER LANDS RIGHT IN MADISON’S LAP!
Persephone: We need to thank the world that Gavin Kirkland isn’t commentating this match because he’d lose all control seeing a spot like that. Sick pervert.
James Peters: Uh ok. But right now we have Madison and Amber in a very precarious position and they are throwing haymakers on the top turnbuckle. AMBER! MADISON! AMBER! MADISON! AMBER! MADISON! AMBER! MADISON! AMBER! MADISON! AMBER! MADISON! AMBER!
Rich Russillo: THAT LAST PUNCHED ROCKED MADISON SO MUCH THAT BOTH MADISON AND AMBER TUMBLE OFF THE TOP TURNBUCKLE, HIT THE APRON, AND CRASH RIGHT BACK DOWN TO THE ARENA FLOOR!
James Peters: BOTH LADIES ARE NOT MOVING ON THE OUTSIDE! THE REFEREE HAS NO CHOICE BUT TO START THE COUNT!
Referee: ONE! TWO! THREE!
Rich Russillo: Ref’s at three and now both women are starting to stir. They might need to pick up the pace if they don’t want to get counted out. If they can. They did land hard on the apron and the floor.
Referee: FOUR! FIVE! SIX!
James Peters: They have made it to their knees and mustered up the strength to crawl back into the ring! The referee is at six, so this might be a close one.
Referee: SEVEN! EIGHT!
Rich Russillo: Amber Keys is back up to her feet and she dives into the ring at eight! I don’t think Amber wants a count out, but it just might happen.
James Peters: Madison is clawing her way up using the ring skirt to get back to her feet. Both women hit their backs on the ring apron, but Madison might have got the worst of it.
Persephone: TEN! TEN! JUST SAY TEN REFEREE! END THIS GAWD AWFUL MATCH AND PUT US OUT OF OUR MISERY! HURRY UP!
James Peters: HOLY SHIT! MADISON DIVES BACK INTO THE RING AT THE VERY LAST SECOND RIGHT BEFORE THE REF COUNTED TEN! I DON’T KNOW IF AMBER CAN BELIEVE IT, BUT I DON’T THINK SHE MINDS THAT THE MATCH CONTINUES!
Rich Russillo: To say the very least. Now both women are back up to their feet AND HOLY SHIT! LOOK THE STONE COLD GLARES IN BOTH THEIR EYES! I think the bad blood between the two women is about the boil over right here and right now. They have reached the breaking point–
James Peters: THEY ARE BRAWLING ONCE AGAIN! THESE LADIES ARE PUNCHING EACH OTHER RIGHT IN THE FACE! AMBER AND MADISON WILL NOT QUIT UNTIL THE OTHER FALLS! IT HAS GOTTEN THAT BAD BETWEEN THESE TWO!
Persephone: I just hope these bitches just knock each other out and they both lose. I’m sick of looking at both of them. But I do kind of enjoy these old ladies beating the hell out of each other.
James Peters: AMBER TRIED TO SNEAK IN A KICK, BUT MADISON CAUGHT THE LEG! AMBER HOPPING AROUND ON ONE FOOT, BUT AMBER WITH A BLATANT RAKE OF THE EYES BEFORE TAKING MADISON DOWN WITH A POWERFUL ENZUIGIRI! HOLY SHIT THAT CAUGHT MADISON RIGHT IN THE FACE! AMBER THINKS SHE HAS THE WIN AS SHE GOES FOR THE COVER!
Rich Russillo: SHE GOT THE SHOULDER UP! MADISON GETS THE SHOULDER UP AND AMBER IS NOT HAPPY ABOUT THAT! BUT LOOK AT MADISON! CAN WE GET A CAMERA SHOT ON MADISON!
James Peters: Oh I see it now! MADISON IS BLEEDING FROM THE NOSE! Amber did catch Madison in the face with that enzuigiri kick. Madison’s nose could be broken, but I really don’t think that Madison really gives two shits less about it. Both these women want to win this match and they are showing how far they are willing to go here tonight.
Persephone: Don’t make it out to be as big as you think it is. Yes, it’s blood, but it’s a nosebleed. The least exciting of the bleeding family. Shit, that pervert Gavin gets one every time he sees a girl with implants bigger than his negative IQ. Hell, Madison’s so old she might think she has ketchup on her face or something.
James Peters: First Amber and Madison. Now Gavin. Gavin isn’t even here to defend himself.
Persephone: Exactly. It’s the best time to insult him. He could be watching in the back but I don’t care… Now look at Dirti Amber just kick the dog crap out of Madison. She shouldn’t kick her lick that to make her feel bad. Just beat her. That will make her feel worse.
Rich Russillo: Amber Keys drags Madison back to her feet and whips her into the corner before FOLLOWING BEHIND WITH A CLOTHESLINE! MADISON STUMBLES OUT OF THE CORNER AND AMBER PLANTS HER WITH A DDT!
James Peters: Amber drags Madison to the center of the ring and runs to the ropes. Amber believes she can win this match right here. AMBER JUMPS AND GOES FOR THE SPRINGBOARD MOONSAULT–
Rich Russillo: KNEES UP! MADISON GOT THE KNEES UP AT THE LAST SECOND! MADISON BACK UP TO HER AND SEES AMBER IN PRIME POSITION! MADISON NOW GOING FOR THE M.O.D.! FAMEASSER ON THE WAY-
James Peters: AMBER CATCHES MADISON! AMBER LIFTS HER UP AND COUNTERS THE M.O.D WITH A SITOUT POWERBOMB! WHAT A COUNTER BY AMBER KEYS! AMBER STACKS UP MADISON AND GOES FOR THE COVER!
Persephone: Why in the hell did she kick out? WE WERE SO CLOSE! This match was almost over but this dumb bitch ruined it. Why does everybody have to try so hard? They all suck! Now Dirti Amber now pulls Madison back up and takes her back down with a clothesline. What was the point of that?
James Peters: Any damage is good damage in order to win the match. Wait? Now Amber is rolling out of the ring and walking over to the timekeeper’s table. OH CRAP! AMBER KEYS HAS A STEEL CHAIR!
Rich Russillo: Why? There are still disqualifications in this match. She clobbers Madison and she loses the match. What is she thinking?
Persephone: She might have forgotten the rules. She is quite old, you know. Now she’s sliding back in the ring.
James Peters: Amber Keys is back up AND SHE GOES TO SWING THE CHAIR, BUT THE REFEREE GRABS THE CHAIR AND TAKES IT FROM AMBER! The referee goes to slide the chair out of the ring–
Rich Russillo: THE CHAIR WAS A DECOY! AMBER KEYS JUST RAKED THE EYES OF MADISON BEFORE CLOCKING HER WITH A STRAIGHT PUNCH TO THE TEMPLE! THAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN A KNOCKOUT PUNCH! AMBER STACKS UP MADISON AND GOES FOR THE COVER!
Persephone: What the hell? Amber has her feet on the ropes! Come on ref! The old bag is trying to cheat.
James Peters: MADISON KICKS OUT! EVEN WITH THE DIRTY TACTICS OF AMBER KEYS, MADISON STAYS ALIVE IN THIS MATCH! We have seen a very competitive match between these two EAW Hall of Famers. What a pleasure and a joy to be a part of.
Persephone: Yeah, such a joy. But I thought black and white TV went out in the 1960s, yet it seems like I keep watching this match in retro mode. Now Amber is crouched in the corner ready to strike. Good grief. Just finish the match!
James Peters: Amber is waiting for Madison to get back to her feet because she is done playing around! AMBER IS SETTING UP FOR THE “AMBER ALERT”! ONE OF THE BEST SPEARS IN THE BUSINESS!
Rich Russillo: AND MADISON HAS NO CLUE AS SHE SLOWLY GETS BACK UP TO HER FEET! MADISON TURNS AROUND AND HERE COMES AMBER WITH THE AMBER ALERT–
James Peters: MADISON JUST JUMPED UP AND AVOIDED THE AMBER ALERT SPEAR! MADISON COMES DOWN BEFORE TURNING AND COUNTERING WITH THE M.O.D.! WHAT A COUNTER FROM MADISON! THIS TIME THE FAMEASSER HITS AND HITS HARD! MADISON ROLLS AMBER OVER AND HOOKS THE LEG FOR THE COVER!
Rich Russillo: AMBER KICKED OUT AT THE LAST MOMENT POSSIBLE! HOLY SHIT THAT WAS CLOSE AND I MEAN THAT WAS VERY CLOSE! MADISON ISN’T GOING TO LET UP AS SHE DRAGS AMBER TO THE CORNER!
Persephone: Now Madison climbs back up to the turnbuckle. Her eyes look like they are still watering from that enzuigiri. Now we’ll finally get to see how she looks without the makeup. She’ll most definitely look her age now.
James Peters: Just stop! MADISON KALINE FINDS HER FOOTING AND JUMPS! MADISON WITH THE MADDIE BOMB MOONSAULT!
Rich Russillo: AMBER ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY AND MADISON LANDS ON HER FEET! IT’S LIKE SHE ALMOST FELT THAT AMBER WOULD COUNTER THE MOONSAULT! BUT MADISON DIDN’T SEE AMBER COME OUT OF THE CORNER WITH THE AMBER ALERT! AMBER KEYS GOT THE AMBER ALERT SPEAR!
James Peters: AMBER GOT THE SPEAR THAT TIME AND SHE MIGHT HAVE BROKE MADISON IN HALF! MADISON IS NOT MOVING AS AMBER FALLS INTO THE COVER! THIS HAS GOT TO BE OVER!
Persephone: The match is over! Ring the bell! We have a winner! Yay! Now get out of the ring. WHY ISN’T THE DUMBASS RINGING THE BELL? THIS MATCH IS OVER YOU IDIOT!
James Peters: THIS MATCH IS NOT OVER! MADISON EDGED HER SHOULDER OFF THE CANVAS ENOUGH TO STOP THE PIN COUNT! AMBER THOUGHT SHE HAD THE MATCH TOO, SO SHE IS NOT HAPPY!
Rich Russillo: Amber is borderline pissed as she mounts Madison and just starts punching the shit out of her.
Persephone: Oh here we go. Old lady didn’t get what she wanted so she’s throwing a bitch fit. Don’t they call those Karens now? If so, I can see it. Now Amber is trying to choke out Madison, but the referee is once again starting the count.
James Peters: The referee pulls Amber off of Madison and warns her that she is walking on thin ice with her breaking the rules.
Rich Russillo: Amber really doesn’t care what the referee thinks because she believes that this match is close to over.
Persephone: I don’t see why because both these old bitches are still moving and conscious. If it wasn’t the match, you would think all the lights would make them light headed and pass out. Yet we can’t get that either. Gawd this match is a borefest!
James Peters: That’s enough from you! But Madison has slowly made it back to her feet with help from the ropes! AMBER COMES FROM BEHIND AND GOES FOR THE DOUBLE KNEE BACKBREAKER!
Rich Russillo: BUT MADISON HOLDS ONTO THE ROPES AND AMBER CRASHES AGAINST THE MAT! DID YOU SEE HER HEAD LAND HARD?
Persephone: So what? There’s nothing up in Amber’s head that she can hurt in the place. All you would hear is a silent yet hollow sound. At least that’s what I heard.
James Peters: Amber holding the back of her head AND MADISON COMES FROM BEHIND AND HITS A GERMAN SUPLEX ON AMBER! THE BACK OF AMBER’S HEAD CRASHES AGAINST THE CANVAS ONCE AGAIN! NOW MADISON BRIDGES UP AND WE HAVE A COVER! WILL THIS BE ENOUGH?
Rich Russillo: AMBER ROLLS THROUGH RIGHT BEFORE THE THREE COUNT AND AMBER IS BACKPEDALING HERSELF TOWARDS THE ROPES TO GET A BREATHER FROM MADISON!
James Peters: Madison isn’t going to let that happen and now she is right on Amber’s trail. BUT AMBER PULLS MADISON BY THE TIGHTS INTO THE ROPES AND MADISON GOES THROAT FIRST INTO THE MIDDLE ROPE!
Rich Russillo: AMBER QUICKLY BACK UP TO HER FEET AND MADISON QUICKLY FOLLOWS SUIT WHILE SHE IS RUBBING HER THROAT, BUT WHEN SHE IS BACK UP, SHE IS MET WITH A FLYING HEEL KICK FROM AMBER KEYS! ANOTHER KICK RIGHT TO MADISON’S FACE! THAT ONE COULD HAVE GOT THE BLOOD FLOWING AGAIN AND MIGHT HAVE BROKEN HER NOSE IF IT WASN’T BROKEN ALREADY!
Persephone: Here we go again. Amber climbs up to the top rope again. Hopefully she doesn’t get lost and fall off the ropes. Damn, she doesn’t fall. But she does jump from the top rope as she goes for a knee drop with that titanium knee of hers. That’s a weapon! Disqualify her! Whatever! Here comes the knee drop–
James Peters: MADISON GETS OUT OF THE WAY! AMBER MISSED THE KNEE DROP FROM THE TOP ROPE! AMBER IS SLOWLY BACK UP TO HER FEET! NOW MADISON COMES UP AND TAKES AMBER DOWN IN HOPES OF APPLYING THE DEATH’S GRASP SUBMISSION! HER VERSION OF THE HELL’S GATE!
Rich Russillo: MADISON IS TRYING TO LOCK IN THE DEATH’S GRASP BUT AMBER IS FIGHTING IT! IF MADISON GETS THE SUBMISSION LOCKED IN, THIS MATCH WILL BE ALL BUT OVER! MADISON TRYING AS HARD AS SHE CAN BUT AMBER GETS FREE AND ROLLS MADISON BACK! MADISON BACK TO HER FEET AND–
James Peters: HOLY SHIT! WHAT A SHOT! AMBER CAUGHT MADISON RIGHT IN THE JAW HER “SUCIAKICK” SUPERKICK! HER TEETH MIGHT HAVE ENDED UP IN THE FIFTH ROW! SHUT UP, PERSEPHONE! NOBODY WANTS TO HEAR IT! BUT AMBER DRAGS MADISON TO THE CORNER AND UP TO THE TOP ROPE!
Persephone: First off, that was really rude, asshole. You have no idea what I was going to say. Second, we have an old bag on the top turnbuckle. It seemed like the match was going in slow motion when she was getting her old ass up there. Get the med team on standby because she might break her hip or it will hit and finish the match. Again, I’m ok with either.
Rich Russillo: AMBER KEYS ON THE TOP ROPE AND SHE DOESN’T WASTE A CHANCE TO FINISH THE MATCH! AMBER FLIES AND SHE’S LOOKING FOR THE DIRTI DIVE FROG SPLASH! IF SHE HITS THIS IT’S OVER—
James Peters: DIRTI DIVE MISSED! MADISON AVOIDS THE DIRTI DIVE AT THE LAST MOMENT AND AMBER LANDS HARD! MADISON GETS BACK TO HER FEET AND CALLS FOR AMBER TO DO THE SAME! AMBER IS FEELING THE EFFECTS OF THE MISSED SPLASH!
Rich Russillo: AMBER IS ALMOST BACK TO HER FEET AS MADISON HITS THE ROPES! AMBER NOW BACK UP AND SHE IS MET WITH THE AFTERLIFE! CLOTHESLINE FROM HELL FROM MADISON KALINE! WHAT A SHOT RIGHT TO THE THROAT!
James Peters: AMBER DOES NOT LOOK LIKE SHE IS MOVING! WILL WE SEE AMBER KEYS IN THE AFTERLIFE? WE MIGHT AS MADISON HOOKS THE LEG AND GOES FOR THE COVER! DOES MADISON HAVE IT?
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“O Fortuna” starts playing again as Madison Kaline slowly rolls off of Amber as the crowd gives her a mixed, but again more positive reaction.)
Bella Braxton: Here is your winner! MADISON KALINE!
(Madison slowly makes it back to her feet as the referee raises her arm in victory. Madison gives her fallen opponent a look of disgust before rolling out of the ring.)
James Peters: What. A. Match. We were expecting a fight between these two women and that’s exactly what we got. Both Madison and Amber looked tremendous out there.
Persephone: Yeah yeah. We have a winner and all that other bullshit. Do you know what’s even better? The match is over and the orderlies can take both these women back to their room. Make sure to lock the doors this time so we never have to see them again.
Rich Russillo: People have had doubts that either Madison or Amber could still go in an EAW ring after so much time away, but this match showed that both Amber and Madison most definitely have still got it.
Persephone: Still got what? Liver spots that they can play Connect the Dots with? Too many wrinkles? Enlighten me.
Rich Russillo: I mean the skills, heart, and determination that led them both to being former World Champions in their careers as well as earning their place in the EAW Hall of Fame!
James Peters: That’s right. Both women came into tonight with a purpose and a goal. Amber Keys showed the intensity that has brought her success, but tonight unfortunately just wasn’t her night. It was the veteran instinct of Madison Kaline that took Amber to the afterlife and gave her a huge victory here at Pain for Pride. Congratulations to Madison Kaline.
(The final shot shows Madison Kaline celebrating her biggest victory since her EAW return at the top of the entrance ramp as Amber, who is still sitting down in the ring and still feeling the effects of the Afterlife clothesline, looks up towards Madison still holding her throat with a look of anger and disgust at the camera cuts elsewhere.)
(The camera fades backstage to the office of the EAW vice president, HRDO. The crowd immediately begins to cheer seeing the vice president, and HRDO is seen finishing up a conversation with the CEO of Disney, Bob Chapek. Very recently the deal between EAW and Disney was announced, and it seems like the meeting was in regards to that. The two shake hands as Bob begins to speak.)
Bob Chapek: I’m really glad we could come to an agreement, soon enough EAW will be looking better, and more profitable than ever.
HRDO: Me too. You know how much this place means to me. For fifteen years EAW has been seen as the peak of professional wrestling, and I just want to make sure that we’ll be able to stay at the top for the next fifteen years. I have no doubt that this deal is just going to amount to great things for both parties involved, and I’m really looking forward to seeing what next season has in store for this place.
Bob Chapek: And I’m looking forward to doing business with you for the foreseeable future.
(Bob Chapek is about to make his way to the door, but he stops in his tracks.)
Bob Chapek: Wait, there actually is one more thing I needed to tell you, and it’s about the situation going on over at Dynasty.
HRDO: Dynasty? Are you talking about what happened to StarrStan?
(Leading up to Pain for Pride, Kassidy Heart unleashed an assault on StarrStan, the Dynasty general manager. Thanks to this StarrStan would gain an injury, taking him out indefinitely. Bob Chapek just nods his head before continuing to speak.)
Bob Chapek: We heard that StarrStan wouldn’t be able to fulfill his duties as general manager for the foreseeable future, and since we already needed someone to take control of the brand for the time being, we’ve gone ahead and found a replacement.
(HRDO looks a bit surprised by this.)
Bob Chapek: Of course. The draft is coming up, and it wouldn’t be right for a show as important as that to arrive without Dynasty having a general manager to represent the brand and build it in their vision. It’ll be a very long time before StarrStan is back, if he ever does choose to come back, so there’s no point in waiting for him. Time doesn’t wait for anybody, so we’d be better off moving forward ahead of it. Things are changing around here, and I don’t think there’s a better way to usher in this new era than with a new general manager. In fact, we have him right-
(Before he could finish, there is a knock on the door.)
Bob Chapek: Here.
(Bob Chapek goes and opens the door as HRDO just watches on. As the door opens, a man is seen standing in the doorway.)
(Without wasting anytime, the man walks into the room with a smirk on his face.)
Bob Chapek: Effective immediately, Dynasty’s new general manager handpicked by Disney, Tyrone Montgomery. This man worked his way up the ranks from being an intern all the way to a high level executive position, and he’s been a huge part of meeting a lot of our goals and quotas over at Disney. I’m sure he’ll do the same for EAW and Dynasty.
(Before HRDO even gets the chance to speak, the new general manager starts to talk.)
Tyrone Montgomery: Bob, thank you for the introduction, but I’ll take it from here. HRDO, it’s fantastic to meet you! Disney has appointed me the new Dynasty General Manager and obviously, it was a pretty good decision on their part. I like to think that this EAW and Disney partnership is going to be beneficial for all parties, and obviously Dynasty is going to be better with me running it :wow:.
HRDO: … For the better…? What was wrong with Starr?
Tyrone Montgomery: Nothing! From what I was told StarrStan was an excellent General Manager. But… he doesn’t fit what the Walt Disney Company is looking for in this new era of Elite Answers Wrestling. He’s let a lot of things slip under the radar that just aren’t acceptable with this partnership, and we’re just trying to make this transition as smooth as possible. I’m not trying to replace Starr, I’m just trying to make sure that we bring this Disney vision to fruition. Believe me, Dynasty is far from the problematic brand in this company! There are other shows that clearly need to be completely overhauled. But Dynasty is in good hands, trust me 😉
HRDO: So what’s the deal? Are you going to replace Hawk? Captain Charisma? I have a feeling that this is what you’re going for and it’s far from the need for a General Manager after Starr’s leave of absence.
Tyrone Montgomery: I have faith that the rest of the brands can hold their end of the bargain when it comes to this deal. They know what they’re doing, and they will be strictly monitored by Disney Executives in case anything goes wrong. If that happens, that’s when we’ll take action. But for now? We’re just trying to fill the void that Starr left, and once again, that’s where I come in. It was great meeting you HRDO, I’ll be happy to develop our business relationship some other time, but for now? I have some important matters to tend to.
(HRDO sighs before nodding his head.)
HRDO: Nice to meet you too, Tyrone. Thank you for your time.
(Bob Chapek nods his head before both him and Tyrone take their leave from HRDO’s office. HRDO looks on and shakes his head. He’s obviously skeptical, but then again, he’s going to have to see for himself what Tyrone’s vision for Friday Night Dynasty heading into Season 16 will be. The last shot seen is him sitting back in his office chair while Pain For Pride begins to transition to elsewhere from there.)
( Pain for Pride returns to the ring, which has been completely transformed in preparation for the upcoming Barbed Wire Massacre match. Standing at ringside is Bella Braxton, holding 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 BARBED WIRE MASSACRE VIII FOR THE EAW WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP!!!!
(The crowd begins cheering extremely loudly, but those cheers are very short-lived.)
( ‘Cold War’ by Hans Zimmer hits, and this causes the positive reaction from the Barbed Wire Massacre announcement to turn into extremely loud boos, overshadowing the entrance music before the man responsible could even walk out. After a few seconds he does come out, and as soon as Drake King is seen by the thousands of fans in attendance, the boos only grow even louder. Despite this, Drake King just stares inside of the ring. This is not his first Barbed Wire Massacre, and he already knows how dangerous this match stipulation is. Regardless Drake King begins to slowly walk down the ramp, seemingly prepared to face off against his former partners in Myles and Minerva, in one of his most personal matches yet. )
Bella Braxton: Introducing first… From the Dead Sea, Israel… Weighing in at 220 pounds….. DRRRAAAKE THE REDEEEMERRRRR!!!!!!
( Drake King slowly steps inside of the ring, waiting for his two opponents and former allies. )
James Peters: This man ended last year’s Pain for Pride as the EAW World Champion, and I don’t think there’s a single person on the planet that wants to see him repeat history after what he did to Minerva months ago! His ego got the better of him and he stabbed her in the back, leading to the downfall of New Eden.
Rich Russillo: Drake has been in a Barbed Wire Massacre match in the past but it did not end in his favor. If there’s one thing everyone here DOES want to see happen again, it’s Drake losing a match like this. Fortunately for them, I don’t really know how a match like this could end in his favor. Everyone wants to win, but neither Myles nor Minerva want Drake to leave this match at all.
Persephone: Good! I think Pain for Pride has been missing some good deaths. Once Disney ruins everything I don’t know when I’ll get to see it again, so they better make this match worthwhile.
(As Drake King waits inside of the ring, ‘Blood, Milk & Sky’ hits, changing the fans mood entirely as they immediately explode into cheers for Minerva. It doesn’t take very long for Minerva to make her way out, with the reasoning for that being pretty obvious after the last seven months. As soon as Minerva walks out she stares a hole into the opponent already inside of the ring, the man that stabbed her in the back at Road to Redemption 2021. Minerva begins making her way down the ramp, which in turn makes Drake back up to the far corner of the ring as she makes her way towards the ring. After all she’s been through in 2022, Minerva looks more ready for this match than any other, clearly prepared to not only end the man that betrayed her, but prepared to finally win the EAW World Championship at the biggest show of the year. )
Bella Braxton: Making her way to the ring… Residing in the Florida Everglades… Weighing in at 122 pounds…. SHE IS THE BLACK ROSE, MIIIIIIINNEEERRRVVAAAAA!!!!!!!
( Minerva steps inside of the ring as Drake can only watch from afar, both Elitists sharing a look of disdain for the other. )
James Peters: And now here comes the former National Elite Champion, former Universal Women’s Champion, and so much more! Minerva has accomplished a lot and tonight is partially about adding another major accomplishment to that resume, but it’s also about two more things. Having to defeat her own boyfriend in Myles, and finally getting revenge on Drake King.
Rich Russillo: Both of those things are easier said than done, however we saw the two inside of the ring face off already. In fact, Myles and Minerva also faced each other two years ago in a match that Minerva won, but so much has changed since then that I have no idea how this match will go!
Persephone: Well as long as it lives up to the name “barbed wire massacre”, who cares? As long as nobody has fun and everyone dies instead, I win!
( Neither Minerva nor Drake take their eyes off of each other, both waiting for the match to start. )
James Peters: I’m sure it takes a lot of self control for Minerva to not go after Drake right now after the horrible things Drake did to her, but we still have one more person left to get out here, and that’s the Champion himself. Minerva and Myles have been in a relationship for a very long time, but they both want to leave this match as the EAW World Champion. With that being said, who knows how this will end?
( The lights go out as darkness fills the stadium for a moment. Soon after, a slow, angelic humming begins playing through the speakers as divine lights shine down upon the stage. There are artificial clouds circling the stage, accompanied by a beautiful field of flowers and vines scattered throughout the floor and hanging off the trons. Suddenly, a voice echoes through the pitch black stadium. )
Narrator: Love is patient, love is kind.
( The tron lights up, first displaying the silhouette of a slender, bright haired woman. Minerva. )
Narrator: It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
( The tron then fades to the silhouette of a long haired, bearded man. Drake King. )
Narrator: It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
( The tron then transitions into the silhouette of a very buff, sexy man. Myles. )
Narrator: It always protects, always trusts, always perseveres.
( As the narrator continues, finally a silhouette of all three members of what was once known as New Eden is shown. It is a hollowed out image of them at the ending of last year’s Pain for Pride, all together side by side. )
Narrator: And now these three remain;
( A full image of Drake King is now shown with text inscribing “Faith”, representing his undying commitment to his beliefs. A faith in ideology. )
( A full image of Minerva is shown with text inscribing “Hope”, representing her strong ambitions to achieve her desires. A hope for success. )
Narrator: And love.
(A full image of Myles is shown, with text inscribing “Love”, representing his feeling towards his partner, yet also his connection to wrestling as a whole. A love for war.)
Narrator: But the greatest of these is love.
( As soon as this is said, a large pyro of fire explodes as the angelic music climaxes and silences itself with a thud. The divine lights fade out to be replaced with pure red. The clouds scatter into mist. The field of flowers is engulfed in flames. )
Narrator: So do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul.
( The tron shows Drake King attacking Minerva at Road To Redemption. )
Narrator: Rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body… in HELL.
( A shot of Myles standing above Drake King is shown as the narrator speaks, but as he says “hell”, the video goes up in flames and is instead replaced with Myles’ entrance video. Alongside this, “Paranormal Liberation Front” by Yuki Hayashi starts playing through the speakers. )
Rich Russillo: Well… that certainly sounds like a remix of our EAW World Champion’s normal entrance theme, but where is he? Hell, how is he even gonna make it out here? The whole stage is engulfed in flames! It’s like we’re in hell itself!
James Peter: Wait, look Rich! Inside the flames!
( From within the inferno, the silhouette of a man is seen walking as the crowd explodes in cheers. He storms out of the fire, but the flames stick to his clothes as he walks down the ramp with eyes fixated on the ring. Miraculously, his clothes are on fire yet somehow not burning. )
Rich Russillo: THE CHAMP IS HERE! It’s Myles! Look at him, he’s covered in fire, hell even the EAW World Championship is in flames, yet he is only focused on one thing and one thing only!
Persephone: I hope he burns to death. Besides, what was all that shit about “destroying souls”?! Or even that “love” bullshit? If Rex isn’t involved, I don’t wanna hear about love!
James Peter: I’m pretty sure that the whole narration was quoted directly from the bible, but it’s fitting here because for Myles, this match means so much. He has to juggle his love for Minerva and his desire to destroy Drake King. He walks in today as the World Champion, but in classic New Eden fashion, it seems as if the title is the least of his concerns as far as this match goes.
Persephone: Well no shit, he’s letting his championship literally get covered in flames right now. What kind of protectant did this pest put on it to make it not look damaged at all?
( As Myles reaches the bottom of the ramp, he is sprayed with a huge fire extinguisher and as he emerges from the smoke, he is finally rid of all the flames and his jacket is already off, as his black and red attire can be seen more clearly now. )
Bella Braxton: And now, weighing in at 215 pounds, HE IS THE EAW WORLD CHAMPPIIOOOONN, THE WAARRRLORRDD… MYYYYYYLLLLEESSSSSSSSS!
James Peters: To think that these three used to be partners. Myles and Minerva may still be a couple despite New Eden’s destruction, but even though we all wanted it to happen, I didn’t think a year ago that this is what Pain for Pride had in store!
Rich Russillo: Myles and Minerva know that they have to fight each other, both of them want to get rid of Drake King, and Drake for seven months has been trying to get rid of Minerva. This is going to be a match for the ages.
( Myles finally enters the ring, as the three former New Eden members stare at one another one final time. )
( The referee looked from Drake to Minerva and then finally settled his eyes on the champ. Myles looked the most calm despite the fact his eyes were locked on Drake. The sick smile ‘The Messiah’ wore on his face wasn’t doing him any favors at the moment and no doubt Myles was boiling with rage inside. Everyone inside the stadium knew that all hell would break loose the second the bell rang and they were all holding their breath, just waiting for the referee’s signal. )
James Peters: You could hear a pin drop in this place right now. I think I speak for everyone when I say that this right here is one of the most anticipated matches we have ever had not just for Voltage, but for EAW as a whole.
Persephone: And it’ll likely be the last Barbed Wire Massacre match ever thanks to this ridiculous partnership with Disney. How the fuck am I going to survive?
Rich Russillo: :mjcry: All we can do is enjoy what little time we have left in the world of violence we’ve lived in for the last four years.
( Meanwhile, the anticipation inside the ring continued to build. The referee raised the barbed wire bat in the air, and while a few fans cheered, the majority of the sold-out Las Vegas crowd remained silent. There was so much tension in the air. A woman was fighting for her family, not to mention her own personal salvation. A man was fighting for his girlfriend and to finish what he believed he’d started. The person who had orchestrated all of their misery for the last seven months was willing to do whatever he could to make sure both of his former allies were left in a bloody, unrecognizable heap. It was going to be a battle for the ages. It was so personal for each of the competitors standing in the ring. )
( The referee crossed to the center of the ring and laid the bat down in the middle of it. It was a nod to an old school Bunkhouse Scramble Deathmatch which was popularized in Japan back in the early 90s. Of course, with the barbed wire surrounding the ring, it wasn’t really feasible to think that the wrestlers could sprint to said ring, slide in, and see who could grab the bat first, but Captain Charisma thought it would be a fun twist to have things begin with everyone fighting over a weapon. )
Persephone: Okay seriously. Ring the fucking bell and let’s fucking go! Minerva literally said she was going to leave Drake’s entrails spilled inside that ring. If I don’t see someone’s guts exposed, I am not going to be happy.
James Peters: The Disney execs are really going to love you.
( Minerva’s ice blue eyes dropped to the bat and she licked her lips. She knew getting her hands on that weapon would be the perfect way to start the match. She didn’t need to look at Myles to know he was thinking the same exact thing. The two of them were so perfectly in sync with one another that they could pretty much figure out what the other person was thinking. If she had too, Minerva would stop Myles from getting that bat. He had made it his goal to end Drake King once and for all, but she couldn’t let him have that luxury. Drake’s head belonged to her and if Myles got in the way of that, then so be it. )
( Myles did look over at Minerva, and the tiniest flicker of emotion could be seen by those watching closely. Myles schooled his features pretty quickly but it was obvious he knew what was on Minerva’s mind. He needed to get the bat before she did, and was mentally preparing himself for what he had to do during this match. It wasn’t going to be pretty, nor would he take much pleasure in it, but that was the nature of the dangerous game all three of them were playing. )
( Drake’s eyes were dancing with delight and his smile had only grown wider. It was obvious that the two people standing across from him were prepared for war. Myles and Minerva had made their intentions pretty clear this week, and believe it or not, Drake found himself excited for this match. He was at his absolute best when his back was against the wall and his uncanny knack for surviving and even thriving in adverse and extreme conditions truly set him apart as an Elitist. He took a peak at the crowd, embracing the light scattering of boos and delighting in the otherwise uncharacteristic silence of the EAW Universe. )
Drake King: (off-mic) You know what, ref? I need a moment.
( Drake dropped down and very carefully rolled out of the ring. He made sure not to snag his skin on the barbed wire. Now the silent fans who had been waiting patiently for the match to begin joined the boo birds. )
Persephone: What the fuck is he doing??
James Peters: He’s toying with them, Seph. Drake just took a chair from the timekeeper’s area and he’s sitting down.
( Sure enough, the former champion had taken a seat. Drake even had the audacity to sit back and get comfortable. )
Minerva: (off-mic) What the fuck are you doing??
( Minerva’s voice was filled with confusion and rage. Drake merely waved a hand at her. )
Drake King: (off-mic) I said I need a moment. Feel free to start the match off against Myles if you wish.
( Myles bit back the irritation that washed over him. Drake had just shown his hand and even though he shouldn’t have been surprised, Myles couldn’t believe it. )
Persephone: :notbad: What a cunning little fucker. He’s trying to see if those two are going to make good on their promise to not hold anything back against one another.
Rich Russillo: I’m not even surprised that he’s already trying to manipulate the situation.
James Peters: What other choice does he have, Rich? Drake King has a mighty big target on his back tonight.
( Rage, despair, and the absolute need for Drake’s blood on her hands threatened to overwhelm Minerva. )
( It was the EAW World Champion who took the lead with a simple nod of his head to the referee. )
Myles: (off-mic) Ring it.
( DING! DING! DING! )
James Peters: MINERVA IMMEDIATELY DIVES UNDER THE BARBED WIRE AND MAKES A BEELINE FOR DRAKE KING! DRAKE SHOOTS TO HIS FEET, GRABS THE CHAIR, AND THROWS IT RIGHT AT MINERVA’S FACE! SHE DUCKS THE CHAIR AS MYLES COMES AROUND THE CORNER, CUTTING OFF DRAKE’S EXIT!
Persephone: :mjlol: Looks like whatever game he was trying to play with these two bozos backfired in a big way.
Rich Russillo: DRAKE SEES THAT HIS ONLY ESCAPE IS TO GET INTO THE RING BUT MYLES AND MINERVA GRAB HIM BY THE LEGS! THEY WHIP DRAKE BACK FIRST INTO THE BARRICADES, BUT HE QUICKLY PUSHES HIMSELF OFF AND TRIES TO TAKE THEM BOTH DOWN WITH A DOUBLE CLOTHESLINE! MYLES AND MINERVA DUCK! DRAKE TURNS AROUND! DOUBLE CLOTHESLINE TAKES DRAKE TO THE GROUND!
James Peters: MINERVA GRABS DRAKE BY THE HAIR AND SHE BOUNCES HIS HEAD OFF THE HARDEST PART OF THE RING! THE GRAND RAMPAGE MATCH BETWEEN THESE TWO LEFT SO MANY THINGS UNSETTLED BUT MINERVA PLANS TO END EVERYTHING HERE TONIGHT! SHE TRIES TO RAKE DRAKE’S FACE ACROSS THE BARBED WIRE BUT HE CATCHES HER WITH AN ELBOW TO THE FACE!
Persephone: MINERVA STUMBLES BACK BUT DRAKE IS QUICKLY GRABBED BY MYLES! THE GINGER SHIT LOOKS TO RAM DRAKE’S FACE INTO THE RING POST, BUT DRAKE GETS HIS FOOT UP TO BLOCK AND MYLES TAKES AN ELBOW TO THE FACE! MINERVA LUNGES FOR DRAKE BUT HE QUICKLY DUCKS AND SHE TAKES MYLES TO THE GROUND! DRAKE DIVES FOR THE RING BUT MINERVA GRABS HIM AND GOES TO WHIP HIM INTO THE RING POST! DRAKE PLANTS HIS FEET AND REVERSES AND MINERVA SLAMS BACK FIRST INTO THE STEEL!
Rich Russillo: MYLES CATCHES DRAKE WITH A CLUBBING BLOW TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD AND TOSSES HIM INTO THE RING STEPS! MYLES LOOKS TO GET INSIDE THE RING BUT DRAKE ISN’T GOING TO STAY DOWN! HE PULLS MYLES BACK TO THE GROUND AND NAILS HIM WITH A RIGHT HAND! MYLES FIRES BACK WITH A RIGHT OF HIS OWN! THESE TWO ARE TRADING SHOTS AND LOOK AT MINERVA! SHE PUNCHES DRAKE IN THE BACK OF THE HEAD AND NOW HE IS BEING DOUBLE-TEAMED!
Persephone: And not in the pleasurable way.
James Peters: :skip:
Rich Russillo: DRAKE SOMEHOW MANAGES TO FEND OFF THE DOUBLE BEATDOWN BY CATCHING MYLES IN THE GUT WITH A KNEE! HE NAILS MINERVA WITH A DESPERATION HEADBUTT AND HE QUICKLY RACES AROUND THE RING TO SEPARATE HIMSELF FROM THEM! ALL THREE COMPETITORS SEEM TO HAVE THE SAME IDEA NOW AND THEY’RE ALL GETTING BACK INTO THE RING!
James Peters: IT’S A RACE TO SEE WHO CAN GET THAT BARBED WIRE BAT FIRST AND IT’S MINERVA WHO REACHES FOR IT!
Persephone: DRAKE IS RIGHT THERE! HE STOMPS ON HER HAND AND ABSOLUTELY CRUSHES IT UNDERNEATH HIS BOOT!
Rich Russillo: MYLES EATS A JUMPING STRIKE THAT LANDED RIGHT ON HIS JAW AND DRAKE KING SNATCHES UP THE BAT! HE LOOKS TO BRING IT DOWN ACROSS MINERVA’S BACK BUT SHE ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY! DRAKE LOOKS TO LAND A BLOW ON MYLES BUT HE MOVES!
James Peters: Myles and Minerva are both up in opposite corners now and Drake stands in the middle of them armed with the bat!
( And just like that, the former stablemates found themselves at an impasse. This brought a smile to Drake’s face as he twirled the bat and all but beckoned Myles and Minerva to come at him. )
( Minerva knew this was a situation she couldn’t let her emotions control. This match was going to be long and grueling, and above all else, extremely painful. Going after Drake with reckless abandon so early could potentially be costly. )
( Myles hauled himself up and shot an exasperated look at Drake. The smug looking grin on Drake’s face and the nonchalant shrug of the shoulders nearly sent Myles over the edge. Somehow, he held himself back and when Drake dropped to his knees and carefully slithered out of the ring like the snake he was known to be, Myles didn’t follow him. )
( Neither did Minerva. )
Rich Russillo: It’s incredible to me that somehow Drake has found a way to control this situation. For all intents and purposes, he has two opponents who legitimately want to end his life and somehow he’s managed to avoid the brunt of their anger.
James Peters: I can’t even begin to imagine the frustration that Myles and Minerva are feeling right now. Drake is casually pacing around the ring now, bat in hand, and this crowd is not happy at all.
( That was an understatement. The crowd was incensed. They had waited all night for this match and desperately wanted to see a monster like Drake King get his comeuppance. No one in EAW deserved to have their livelihood taken away from them more than Drake did. )
Persephone: So what happens now? Are they gunna go after him? I don’t wanna just fucking sit here. I want to see someone die!
Rich Russillo: I think Myles and Minerva are going to focus on each other, Seph! Myles is motioning for a lock-up and Minerva seems to be onboard!
Persephone: But that’s boring! That’s what Drake wants them to do! He left them both in the ring so they would fight each other!
James Peters: At the end of the day, the EAW World Championship is still on the line, and Myles and Minerva both said they would settle the argument over who the better wrestler is between them!
Persephone: I. DON’T. WANT. A. WRESTLING. MATCH!
Rich Russillo: Well that’s what you’re getting my love because Myles and Minerva have locked up! Myles easily takes control of the match, pulling Minerva into a side headlock!
Persephone: LITERALLY the worst fucking headlock I have ever seen in my life and I have to call Ryan Wilson matches for a living.
James Peters: Minera looks to break free, but Myles cinches the headlock tighter and forces Minerva to the ground. She grabs him around the waist and tries to force his shoulders back, but Myles uses his strength to switch to a mount position and it’s Minerva who is on her back!
Persephone: Yeah, well. She’s used to that.
( For a brief moment, nothing else seemed to matter to Myles. He was inside the ring with the person he loved and they were sharing the biggest stage their sport offered together. He couldn’t help but look down at Minerva and grin. )
( Minerva wasn’t in the mood to smile. She kept her shoulder up, but it wasn’t like Myles was trying to pin her at the moment. )
Minerva: (off-mic) What’s there to smile about?
Myles: (off-mic) This. You.
Minerva: (off-mic) You compared me to the Ringmaster.
Myles: (off-mic) :noah: You’re still mad about that?
Minerva: (off-mic) Fuck you.
Rich Russillo: MINERVA JUST CRACKED MYLES IN THE FOREHEAD WITH A HEADBUTT AND THE CHAMP IS DAZED! SHE WRAPS HER HANDS AROUND MYLES THROAT AND BEGINS TO CHOKE THE LIFE OUT OF HIM!
Persephone: I mean, I’m not Minerva fan but Myles was a real piece of shit for that comparison :mjlol:
James Peters: MYLES HAS A HOLD OF MINERVA’S HANDS AND BOTH ARE BACK ON TO THEIR FEET! MYLES IS ABLE TO USE HIS STRENGTH TO BREAK THE CHOKE AND HE SLAMS HIS KNEE INTO MINERVA’S STOMACH! MINERVA IS DOUBLED OVER NOW AND MYLES DROPS HER WITH A GRUESOME ELBOW RIGHT TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD! HE BEGINS STOMPING AWAY ON MINERVA!
Persephone: She asked for it to be honest.
Rich Russillo: Minerva did tell Myles to bring ‘The Warlord’ to Pain for Pride. It looks like she is getting more than what she bargained for as Myles has completely turned off his emotions. He snatches Minerva up by the hair, grabs her by the wrist, and looks to whip her across the ring!
James Peters: I am being told in my headset that one of the corners has been laced with explosives. So that’s fun.
Persephone: :ahh: That sounds amazing! Don’t you just love how all four corners have something deadly in them??
( Persephone was right. Each corner of the ring housed something dangerous. One corner had a large piece of barbed-wire wrapped plywood sat up against it. Jutting from the board was a collection of rusty nails and jagged pieces of glass. In another corner, resting across the barbed-wire ropes, were dozens upon dozens of light tubes that had been wrapped in actual razor-wire. The third corner was a little more tame, if you wished to look at it that way. About half dozen glass panes were casually resting against the turnbuckles. It was the fourth corner that was perhaps the most sinister. It was home to another large piece of plywood, but this one had actual scissors, pizza cutters, and razor blades jutting out from it. )
( Oh. And apparently one of the corners was trigger to explode. )
James Peters: Luckily, Minerva plants her feet and stops Myles from sending her right into the barbed-wire light tubes! She fends him off with an elbow that connects on Myles’ temple and Minerva with a jumping knee strike! The champ was caught underneath the jaw and Minerva takes him down with a massive lariat!
Drake King: 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼
( Drake’s clapping obviously drew Minerva’s attention. She took her eyes of off Myles and focused them on the man who had been tormenting her since Road to Redemption. )
Drake King: (off-mic) Well, go on. You want the EAW World Championship, don’t you? Go and get it! You got this!
Rich Russillo: :mjlol: Drake really is a dick.
James Peters: MINERVA DIVES OUT OF THE RING! She’s abandoned Myles and has gone right after Drake! Drake sprints around the ring but Minerva catches him as he tries to slide in! She pulls him to the ground and goes for a right hand, but Drake manages to block! He uses the end of the bat to catch Minerva in the gut, and then he slams it down across her back! Drake slips into the ring, but Myles is up! Myles flies at Drake, but Drake throws himself to the side!
Rich Russillo: Myles hits the brakes before he crashes into the barbed wire!
Persephone: ‘THE GUILLOTINE’! DRAKE CONNECTS WITH THE SICK KICK AND MYLES GOES DOWN LIKE A TON OF BRICKS! DRAKE GOES FOR THE COVER!!!!
James Peters: MINERVA WITH A DOUBLE AX-HANDLE TO DRAKE’S BACK! SHE BREAKS UP THE PIN AND BEGINS WAILING AWAY ON DRAKE! DRAKE TRIES TO COVER UP BUT MINERVA SNATCHES HIM OFF MYLES BY THE HAIR AND DRAGS HIM OVER TO THE ROPES! DRAKE REACHES FOR MINERVA’S LEG BUT SHE LETS HIM GO AND KICKS THE ABSOLUTE SHIT OUT OF HIM!
Persephone: :mjlol2: LOL! It landed right on his nose, too!
( Pain rocketed through Drake’s face and out of sheer instinct, he grabbed for his nose. He didn’t feel blood but he wanted to make sure that it wasn’t broken. He didn’t really get that chance because Minerva had pounced. She was all over him; kicking and stomping. Then she was down beside him; punching, clawing, scratching, and hitting. Drake grabbed for her hair but Minerva didn’t hesitate to sink her teeth into his arm. )
Drake King: (off-mic) DANG IT!
( Minerva climbed on top of Drake and went right for the throat. Her hands gripped his neck and her matte black fingernails dug into his skin. She wasn’t content to just choke the life out of Drake. She wanted to torture him. She wanted to hurt him. She wanted to make him feel every ounce of pain she had felt. )
( Drake did his best to absorb the pain as the back of his skull was repeatedly slammed into the ring. )
James Peters: BIG BOOT TO THE BACK OF MINERVA’S HEAD! MYLES LIFTS DRAKE UP BY THE WAIST AND HE HAS HIM SET UP FOR THE ‘DE FACTO’!!! MYLES PLANTS DRAKE IN THE CENTER OF THE RING WITH HIS SPINNING PUMPHANDLE SAMOAN DROP!!!!
Persephone: Omg! A Samoan drop! Do you think he does that as a tribute to Andre Walker???
Rich Russillo: I sure hope so because I am a MYLITE stan!!!!
James Peters: MYLES DIDN’T GO FOR THE COVER AND HE HAS THE BARBED-WIRE BAT! HE SLAMS IT DOWN INTO DRAKE’S MID-SECTION!!!
( Drake groaned in pain and quickly rolled to his side. He curled into the fetal position but that didn’t stop Myles from slamming the bat down on Drake a second time. This time the blow connected with Drake’s ribcage area, and the reigning Elitist of the Year was pretty sure some serious damage had just been done to him. )
Rich Russillo: MINERVA IS BEHIND MYLES AND SHE’S GRABBED THE BAT! MYLES WAS LOOKING TO MURDER DRAKE KING BUT MINERVA WANTS TO DO THAT HERSELF! SHE IS TRYING TO WRESTLE THE BAT AWAY FROM MYLES, BUT HE IS ABLE TO BACK HER UP AGAINST THE ROPES! THE BARBED-WIRE IS DIGGING INTO MINERVA’S BACK RIGHT NOW AND MYLES IS ABLE TO GAIN CONTROL OF THE BAT!
James Peters: MINERVA KICKS MYLES IN THE STOMACH AND DARTS BETWEEN HIS LEGS! SHE DROPS HIM RIGHT ACROSS THOSE ROPES WITH A DROP TOEHOLD AND MYLES’ THROAT LANDED ON THE BARBED WIRE! MINERVA RACES AROUND THE RING, LEAPS IN THE AIR, AND DROPS DOUBLE KNEES RIGHT ACROSS MYLES’ BACK!
Persephone: SHE ROLLS OFF AND GOES FOR THE BAT! DRAKE HAS GOTTEN HIMSELF IN A SITTING POSITION BUT HERE COMES ‘THE BLACK ROSE’!!! THE EDGE OF THE BAT CONNECTS WITH THE BACK OF DRAKE’S SKULL AND HE SLUMPS FORWARD! MINERVA GETS SET TO DELIVER THE KILLING BLOW BUT THERE’S MYLES! HE RIPS THE BAT FROM HER HANDS AND TOSSES IT OUT OF THE RING!
Minerva: (off-mic) WHAT ARE YOU DOING???
( Myles looks at his lover with very little emotion. )
Myles: (off-mic) I told you, it had to be me.
( A frustrated cry ripped from Minerva’s lips and she went right for Myles. Myles had anticipated this type of reaction and he quickly wrapped Minerva up in a sleeper. She reached up and went right for his eyes, raking her razor sharp nails across his face and forcing him to let her go. Minerva quickly looked for a swinging neckbreaker, but Myles easily scooped her up, whirled around, and brought her crashing down with a side slam. )
( Minerva grabbed for her lower back, but it didn’t do her any good. Myles kicked her onto her stomach and started to soften her up. Stomp after stomp connected with her kidney area and Minerva tried to crawl away. Myles put a stop to that with an elbow drop to the spine and that’s when she felt herself being trapped in a crossface. Myles got her arm first and then went to lock his hands. Minerva tried to stop this by using her free arm, but Myles struck her in the head and got his hands locked. )
Rich Russillo: Myles has the submission locked in and there is nowhere for Minerva to go! She is trying to find a way out of the crossface but Myles pulls back on her neck! Minerva is in obvious discomfort as she braces her free hand on the mat and tries to push up! Giving up is not an option for her tonight, but Myles isn’t showing her a single shred of remorse right now. These two wanted to go at it. Minerva asked for ‘The Warlord’.
Persephone: BEHIND MYLES! LOOK!
( The audience erupts in boos as Drake shatters one of the razor-wire light tubes across the top of Myles’ head. )
Persephone: HERE WE FUCKING GO! DRAKE HAS A HANDFUL OF LIGHT TUBES AND HE PULLS MYLES TO HIS FEET! DRAKE SMASHES ONE… TWO… THREE… FOUR LIGHT TUBES INTO MYLES’ FACE! THE CHAMP HAS FALLEN TO HIS KNEES AND DRAKE TAKES THE RAZOR WIRE AND WRAPS IT AROUND MYLES’ NECK! HE IS GOING TO CHOKE HIM OUT! DRAKE IS GOING TO USE THE RAZOR WIRE TO CHOKE OUT MYLES!
( But Drake’s intentions were a little more nefarious. He used the razor-wire to drag Myles towards Minerva, who was attempting to collect herself after being tortured by the crossface. Drake kneed her in the back of the head, used his foot to slam her face into the mat, and shoved a choking Myles down beside her. )
Drake King: (off-mic) All of this could have been avoided.
Rich Russillo: :lupe: Drake lets go of Myles, who is bleeding from his neck, and he’s got control of Minerva now. Drake whips her into the corner and the leftover light tubes completely shatter on impact! Minerva can feel the razor-wire digging into her back now and Drake begins to stomp her down into a sitting position.
James Peters: Drake is looking down at all the discarded razor-wire and I don’t really like the look he has on his face right now :lupe:. We all know how sick and twisted this man can be, and he will stop at nothing to prove his point here tonight.
Persephone: He’s wrapping the razor-wire around his foot, guys!
( Drake finished wrapping his foot up and slammed his foot into Minerva’s face. The razor-wire ripped at her face, slicing into her pale cheek and part of her lip. The blood flow started slowly, merely a trickle, but Drake upped the ante and started to stomp. His razor-wire boot connected with Minerva’s face multiple times. Drake’s intentions become obvious at that point. He was attempting to marr Minerva’s beauty, the very thing he believed Myles was enchanted by. )
( Myles had sucked enough air back into his lungs that he could finally peel the razor wire from around his neck. When he looked for Drake and saw that he had Minerva, Myles scrambled to his feet. He lunged for Drake, but it was like ‘The Messiah’ had eyes in the back of his head. He moved out of the way and Myles slammed into his bloodied girlfriend. Drake grabbed a handful of Myles’ hair and pulled him away from Minerva. He forced Myles to look at Minerva, to see the blood covering her face and dripping onto her chest, and Drake loved every minute of it. )
Drake King: (off-mic) Do you still think she’s beautiful? Do you think she’s worth it?
Persephone: Yo. This guy is legitimately fucked. Disney is going to love him!
Rich Russillo: :francis:
James Peters: Drake pulls Myles away from Minerva and begins to kick and stomp on him. Drake’s loaded boot is leaving its mark on Myles now and there is very little the champion can do right now. Drake has sliced opened Myles’ forehead and he’s targeting the neck. He finally stops and walks back to the corner where he gets Minerva by the hair and pulls her into the center of the ring.
Rich Russillo: Drake hauls Minerva up, gets her around the neck, and spikes her into the mat for a DDT! He rolls Minerva onto her back before turning his attention back to Myles. Drake pulls Myles so that both of them are positioned in front of Minerva’s body. There is nothing in Drake King’s eyes but pure evil and I’m really fucking bothered by that, guys.
Persephone: SIT-OUT CHICKENWING FACEBUSTER! DRAKE SET IT UP SO MYLES’ FACE LANDED RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF MINERVA’S VAG!
( The crowd is livid at this point because the last they wanted to see was Drake dominating this match. The very fact that he was making a mockery out of Myles and Minerva was a whole other issue entirely. Drake looked down at the couple, who lay on the mat in a suggestive position and he practically spit on them both. )
Drake King: (off-mic) Sinners. Disgusting, vile, inhumane pieces of actual garbage.
James Peters: Drake has started stomping on the back of Myles’ head! Folks, everytime that razor-wire connects, it does irreparable damage to the EAW World Champion. He is being completely brutalized right now and I don’t think Drake plans to stop until he makes good on his promise to rid this place of Myles and Minerva.
Persephone: Ohhh!!!!! Drake is heading for the glass panes!!!
( Drake didn’t waste any time grabbing two of the glass panes. He dragged the glass over to the ropes and propped them up. Then he went to retrieve Myles. )
Rich Russillo: DRAKE HAS MYLES BY THE HAIR AND HE IS DRAGGING HIM TO THE CORNER! HE LOOKS TO RAM MYLES HEAD FIRST INTO THE GLASS BUT MYLES IS SOMEHOW ABLE TO GET HIS FOOT UP! HE CRACKS THE FIRST PIECE OF GLASS IN THE PROCESS BUT HE IS ABLE TO FEND OFF DRAKE WITH AN ELBOW TO THE FACE! MYLES QUICKLY TURNS AROUND, LOOKING TO CATCH DRAKE OFF GUARD WITH A LARIAT, BUT DRAKE IS ABLE TO DUCK!
James Peters: DRAKE WHIPS AROUND, GRABBING MYLES BY THE WAIST! HE GOES FOR A GERMAN SUPLEX BUT MYLES THWARTS HIM ONCE AGAIN! DRAKE TAKES SEVERAL ELBOWS TO THE FACE IN RAPID SUCCESSION AND HAS TO LET GO! THAT ALLOWS MYLES TO TURN AROUND AND HE SPEARS DRAKE RIGHT THROUGH THE GLASS!
Persephone: BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! WHY COULDN’T THAT HAVE BEEN THE EXPLODING TURNBUCKLE?!?!?!
Rich Russillo: Drake King is sprawled out in the corner, covered in hundreds of shards of glass, but Myles is not about to let him rest! Myles retrieves Drake from the carnage and pulls him over to the ropes. Drake had sat those two glass panes up but it seems like Myles is the one in position to use them. He positions them side by side before bringing Drake to his feet. Myles forces Drake back against the first piece of glass and he grabs the second, propping it against Drake’s chest. Myles looks around at the crowd, who are urging him to take Drake out of this match, and HE GOES FOR THE NAIL BOARD!
Persephone: :singing: PLYWOOD, RUSTY NAILS, AND GLASS SHARDS! THESE ARE A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS! :singing:
James Peters: MYLES LEANS THE BOARD AGAINST HIS LEG AND GRABS THE GLASS THAT WAS LEANING ON DRAKE! HE RAISES IT ABOVE HIS HEAD AND BRINGS IT CRASHING DOWN TOP OF DRAKE! GLASS GOES FLYING EVERYWHERE AND THESE FANS ARE FUCKING LOVING IT!
Persephone: GET THE BOARD! GET THE BOARD!
Rich Russillo: HE’S GOT IT, QUEEN! MYLES HAS A WICKED LOOKING SMILE ON HIS FACE AS HE LOOKS TO ABSOLUTELY MURDER DRA-
James Peters: MINERVA OUT OF NOWHERE WITH A DROP KICK! MYLES IS SLAMS INTO DRAKE! THE GLASS UNDERNEATH DRAKE SHATTERS! MINERVA HAS THE NAIL BOARD AND MYLES BARELY GETS OUT OF THE WAY AS DRAKE KING TAKES THE FULL IMPACT OF THAT SHOT! DOZENS OF NAILS AND GLASS JUST GOT SLAMMED INTO HIS FACE AND CHEST AND DRAKE CRUMBLES DOWN ONTO THE MAT!
Persephone: MYLES IS STARING AT MINERVA, WHO ISN’T EVEN LOOKING AT HIM! SHE’S TOO BUSY UNWRAPPING THE RAZOR-WIRE THAT DRAKE HAD PUT AROUND HIS BOOT! SHE’S FREED IT AND NOW IT’S BEING WRAPPED AROUND DRAKE’S NECK! SHE GETS DRAKE UP AND LEAPS ON HIS BACK, WRAPPING HER LEGS AROUND HIS WAIST! SHE HAS THAT CHOKE LOCKED IN AS TIGHT AS SHE CAN HAVE IT AND SHE FALLS BACK! DRAKE IS FLAILING HIS ARMS AND LEGS AS THAT RAZOR-WIRE SLICES OPEN HIS NECK!
( Myles watched Minerva, unable to look away. She was hellbent on murdering Drake in that very moment, and she did not look like the woman he slept beside every single night. Something had taken control of Minerva; rage, hate, guilt, embarrassment, hurt. Drake had truly done a number on her, and Myles could understand that. After all, he felt all of that too. Drake had been holding both of them emotionally hostage for months now and a part of Myles wanted to see Minerva put a permanent end to ‘The Redeemer’. )
Rich Russillo: DRAKE CONTINUES TRY AND FIGHT OUT OF THIS BUT ESPECIALLY THIS FAR INTO THE MATCH ALREADY IT’S NO EASY TASK! THAT RAZOR-WIRE CONTINUES TO DIG INTO HIS NECK AND YOU CAN SEE HIM SPUTTERING TO BREATHE, MEANWHILE MYLES HASN’T MOVED A MUSCLE! DRAKE IS FORCED DOWN TO A KNEELING POSITION, AND I DON’T KNOW HOW LONG HE’S GOING TO BE ABLE TO WITHSTAND ALL OF THIS!
James Peters: WAIT! DRAKE USING THE BALLS OF HIS FEET TO PROPEL HIMSELF UPWARD! THAT ISN’T ENOUGH TO KEEP HIM UP BUT IT IS ENOUGH TO FORCE HIMSELF BACKWARD AS THE TWO OF THEM COLLIDE WITH MYLES! THE IMPACT CATCHES MINERVA OFF GUARD AND THAT ALLOWS DRAKE TO SCRATCH AT THE CANVAS AND PULL HIMSELF AWAY!
( Drake drags himself towards the center of the ring, grasping at the razor-wire that is lodged in his throat and yanking it out. Blood pours profusely while he simply discards it, clutching at his neck area in pain while the canvas gets stained in his blood. Meanwhile, Myles and Minerva colliding into one another sent Myles into the barbed-wire ropes back first, and Minerva is already rising up to her feet keeping her eyes dead set on the man sprawled out at the center of the ring. She reaches over and clutches at the nail board down on the mat, and begins to approach… like she and Drake are the only ones in the match. )
Persephone: Look at her face all scrunched up like that she looks like a fucking gremlin. Anyway, SEND THOSE RUSTY NAILS RIGHT INTO HIS BACK!
Rich Russillo: YOU MAY HAVE GOTTEN YOUR WISH! MINERVA LIFTS THE NAIL BOARD UP AND LOOKS TO SLAM IT DOWN ONTO THE SPINE OF DRAKE KING- NO! That doesn’t happen as Drake manages to roll out of the way just in time! The nailboard stabs into the canvas and Minerva is trying to pry it out, BUT SHE DOESN’T FOCUS ON DRAKE WHO LEAPS INTO THE AIR AND DROPS HER WITH A SLING BLADE! Myles uses everything in him to push himself off of the ropes, BEFORE RUNNING FORWARD AND GOING FOR A BICYCLE KNEE- BUT DRAKE MANAGES TO MOVE OUT OF THE WAY AND GRAB THE ARM OF MYLES BEFORE PULLING HIM IN AND LOOKING TO SLAM HIM DOWN ONTO THE BACK OF THE NAILBOARD-
James Peters: BUT MYLES PULLS DRAKE IN INSTEAD AND CONNECTS WITH A FOREARM! Drake is stunned while Myles turns him around and grabs him, LIFTING HIM UP AND GOING FOR A BACK SUPLEX ONTO THE BACK OF THE NAILBOARD! WHICH CONNECTS! Thankfully for Drake he didn’t take the brunt of the damage, but turn that nailboard around and let’s just say that it’ll be a whole different story. Drake is down while Myles approaches- BUT MINERVA JUST SHOVED MYLES OUT OF THE WAY AND RAN FORWARD BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A BASEBALL SLIDE WHICH SENDS DRAKE TUMBLING TO THE RINGSIDE AREA! Minerva looks to roll out of the ring and continue the assault-
Rich Russillo: WAIT! WAIT! MYLES JUST TURNED MINERVA AROUND AND CONNECTED WITH A BICYCLE KNEE STRIKE AGAINST HER JAW!
( Myles gets back up to his feet and looks at the downed Minerva before looking up at Drake who is slouched against the barricade at ringside. In the end, he knows he has to focus on one thing and one thing only. While Drake King not winning this match would be a win for both of them, Myles knows that only one of them can win. Minerva’s ambitions for the EAW Championship have been heavily documented, and Myles has welcomed that with open arms even with him as Champion. But in the end, he’s not letting go of the Championship he fought long and hard for, and everyone in this match knows that. )
Persephone: I can’t wait for the love story ending where Myles is like “omg I made a huge mistake” and Minerva is like “I forgive you” and they both kiss and shit.
James Peters: Myles rolls out of the ring and begins to make his way towards Drake, and you can see Drake’s face instantly perk up upon seeing Myles approach him, he is not in the shape to fight against him right now.
Persephone: HE’S FUCKING SCURRYING AWAY LIKE A RAT! LMAOOOO
Rich Russillo: This is more tactical than fear, but Myles is right on his tail regardless. Drake turns the corner, but Myles grabs him by the head, BEFORE SLAMMING HIM FACE FIRST AGAINST THE STEEL STEPS! Drake is stopped in his place while Myles grabs him and drags him down to the side of the steps. He steps back trying to get himself a running start, BEFORE MYLES RUNS FORWARD AND GOES FOR A KNEE STRIKE TO THE HEAD OF DRAKE AGAINST THE STEPS!
James Peters: BUT DRAKE MOVES OUT OF THE WAY SENDING MYLES’ KNEE COLLIDING INTO THE STEPS! THAT CAN’T HAVE FELT GOOD FOR THE EAW WORLD CHAMPION! Myles is slouched against the steps giving a cry of pain while Drake continues to retreat around the ring, and just look at him ever so often clutching at his throat as well. But Myles, even though limping, makes his way over and clutches at the head of Drake, BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A BOOT TO THE FACE! The pain on Myles’ face tells all as he grabs Drake by the head and rolls him back into the ring.
( While that happens, Drake’s hand skims underneath the apron, presumably grabbing something that was planted there. )
Persephone: This is slowing down, WE NEED GRUESOME VIOLENCE AND WE NEED GRUESOME VIOLENCE NOW!
Rich Russillo: Myles slides into the ring and approaches Drake who is down on the mat struggling to get back up to his feet- WAIT! MINERVA OUT OF NOWHERE COMES IN AND CONNECTS WITH A PUMP KICK TO THE FACE WHICH DROPS MYLES DOWN TO THE CANVAS! Myles is dropped down while Minerva mounts on top of him and just begins to hammer away with repeated strikes towards the face! Blood is flying everywhere and Minerva is absolutely relentless! I think she’s just trying to make sure Myles isn’t an obstacle at the moment!
James Peters: Myles can barely move right now while Minerva brings herself back up to her feet, she turns around and looks towards Drake King. She begins to approach menacingly while Drake begins to gain his composure, after everything that has already happened I have no idea what Minerva might have in store for him right now. Minerva grave Drake by the head-
Rich Russillo: WHAT THE! DRAKE JUST THREW SOMETHING AT THE FACE OF MINERVA! WHAT WAS THAT?!
Persephone: YOU COMMENTATE VOLTAGE AND YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT THAT IS YOU FUCKING IDIOT??? THAT WAS A FIREBALL! THAT WAS DRAKE’S PAYBACK AND IT JUST HIT THE FACE OF MINERVA AND SENT HER DOWN TO THE CANVAS!
( Minerva is dropped down to the canvas and grabs at her face rolling around in pain, meanwhile Drake is getting back up. He’s been through a lot in this matchup and it must be a pain to do the simplest tasks, but the one thing Drake does with absolute ease, is grin. While that left Drake blinded a few weeks back to end Voltage, he doesn’t take into consideration what that might have done to Minerva as he grabs her and throws her out through the barbed-wire ropes and towards the ringside area. Drake rolls out of the ring and grabs Minerva by the head, while she’s still shielding herself from the pain. Drake then tugs her towards the same steel steps that Myles banged his knee against, before clutching at her head with both hands.)
Drake King: (off-mic) You want to see how far I’m willing to go…?
Rich Russillo: DRAKE IS ABOUT TO GOUGE MINERVA’S EYES OUT ON THE EDGE OF THE STEEL STEPS! NO! NO!
James Peters: NO! MINERVA SQUINTS HER EYES SHUT AND BRINGS HER HANDS OUT, HOLDING THEM IN FRONT OF HER AND SAVING HER FROM HAVING TO WEAR AN EYEPATCH FOR THE REST OF HER LIFE LIKE HER NAME IS CAROLINE! MINERVA IS TRYING TO PUSH HERSELF AWAY BUT AFTER WHAT JUST HAPPENED SHE’S STRUGGLING TO DO THAT WITH DRAKE USING ALL OF HIS MUSCLE TO PUSH HER AGAINST THE STEEL STEPS! THE BOTH OF THEM ARE JOCKEYING FOR POSITION NOW AND MINERVA REALIZES HOW CRUCIAL IT IS FOR HER TO GET THE FUCK OUT OF THIS WHILE SHE CAN!
( Inside the ring, Myles is beginning to gain his bearings. He looks around in pain before his eyes set on the situation with Drake and Minerva, and instantly he’s alert. Minerva might’ve just beat the shit out of him, and he might be sleeping on the couch, but he realizes something has to be done. He grabs the nail board and turns it around, reaching forward and grabbing one of the glass shards lodged into the board. In one fell swoop, he yanks it free and grabs a hold of it, before rolling to his left and under the bottom barbed-wire ropes to ringside. )
Rich Russillo: BOTH DRAKE AND MINERVA ARE STILL GOING AT IT BUT MINERVA’S STRENGTH IS BEGINNING TO FALTER! SLOWLY BUT SURELY HER FACE IS INCHING CLOSER AND CLOSER TO THOSE STEEL STEPS AND THAT’S SOMETHING THAT SHE SURE DOESN’T WANT BUT SOMETHING THAT DRAKE WOULD LOVE IN THE PROCESS! IS IT GOING TO HAPPEN-
Persephone: BUT MYLES TAKES THAT GLASS SHARD AND DIGS IT INTO THE BACK OF DRAKE, DRAGGING IT VERTICAL ALONGSIDE HIS SPINAL CORD WHILE BLOOD POURS PROFUSELY OUT! DRAKE GIVES A CRY OF PAIN AND INSTANTLY DROPS DOWN TO THE MAT! YESSSS!!!
( Myles pushes Drake down to the mat and drops the glass shards to the mat. He drops down and checks on Minerva, trying to see if she’s okay. Once he gets validation, he brings her over and leans her against the barricade, before looking over at Drake King who is in extreme pain right now clutching at his back. Myles is absolutely furious right now as he grabs Drake and rolls him back into the ring. )
Rich Russillo: Myles slides in as well with Drake clutching at his back and slowly beginning to drag himself backward! He’s trying his best to fend off against Myles but right now that’s not something that’s going to be most sufficient especially in a situation like this! Drake King, you are going to be in for one heck of a beating!
James Peters: MYLES LUNGES FORWARD AND STOMPS DOWN REPEATEDLY ON THE BODY OF DRAKE KING! DRAKE IS TRYING HIS BEST TO BLOCK THE ATTACK BUT MYLES CONTINUES TO STOMP DOWN REPEATEDLY! MYLES’ KNEE IS STILL BANGED UP BUT HE DOESN’T GIVE A DAMN! MYLES GRABS DRAKE BY THE ARMS BEFORE BEGINNING TO STOMP DOWN REPEATEDLY ON HIS CHEST! AND DRAKE IS BEGINNING TO GO LIMP! HOW MUCH WILL HE BE ABLE TO TAKE BEFORE MYLES GETS THE BETTER OF HIM IN THIS ASSAULT???
Rich Russillo: MYLES GRABS DRAKE AND BRINGS HIM UP TO HIS FEET… HE’S GOING FOR THE ‘DE FACTO’! SPINNING PUMPHANDLE SAMOAN DROP TO DRAKE KING!
Persephone: BUT WAIT! THAT SLIMY MOTHERFUCKER! HE JUST TOOK THAT GLASS SHARD THAT MYLES USED ON HIM AND DROVE IT RIGHT INTO HIS FOREHEAD!
James Peters: MYLES CAVES IN AND CRUMBLES DOWN TO THE CANVAS WHILE DRAKE STUMBLES BACKWARD! HE NEARLY FALLS AGAINST THE BARBED WIRE ROPES BUT HE MANAGES TO KEEP HIMSELF UPWARD! Drake is forced to be hunched over and you can see the toll this match has taken on him as he approaches Myles slowly. Myles is clutching at his face, but Drake has him by the head as he brings him up to his feet…
Rich Russillo: DRAKE TAKING THE GLASS SHARD AND DIGGING IT INTO THE FOREHEAD OF MYLES! DRAKE HAS IT LODGED IN THERE AS HE SCRAPES IT BACK AND FORTH AGAINST MYLES CAUSING BLOOD TO POUR OUT LIKE IT’S A FUCKING FAUCET! DRAKE PRESSES THE SHARD IN THERE WITH THE PALM OF HIS HAND AND LET’S GO, WITH THE SHARD STICKING OUT OF HIS FOREHEAD LIKE MYLES IS A UNICORN! HE THEN TUGS HIM IN AND HOOKS THE ARMS…
James Peters: ‘ASCENSION’! DOUBLE UNDERHOOK FACEBUSTER PLANTS MYLES DOWN TO THE CANVAS AND ESPECIALLY WITH THAT GLASS SHARD DIGGING DEEPER UPON IMPACT I HAVE NO DOUBT IN MY MIND THAT MYLES IS COMPLETELY OUT OF IT RIGHT NOW! DRAKE ROLLS MYLES ONTO HIS BACK AND HOOKS THE LEG! PIN ATTEMPT! PIN ATTEMPT!
Persephone: BUT THAT BOZO MANAGES TO POWER OUT! WHEN ARE THEY GOING TO DIE OF BLOOD LOSS HUH??? ANSWER ME!!!
( Drake sits up with an absolutely pissed off expression on his face. He looks around while the crowd pops in excitement for the EAW World Champion managing to kick out. While Myles is more than alive, his body limp on the ground with blood coming from his head looks like it’s more of a murder scene than anything else. Drake slowly begins to rise back up to his feet, accepting the fact that everything just wasn’t enough, before clutching at the hair of Myles and pulling him slowly back up to his feet. There’s a look of disdain on his face while he stares at Myles, who is practically unrecognizable under that crimson mask, and with Minerva down, Drake more than understands that he’s going to have to end this quickly. And with Myles losing blood at a sickening pace this is his chance. )
Persephone: THE GINGER FREAK IS ON HIS LAST LEGS! MYLES HAS BEEN PUT THROUGH THE RINGER HERE TONIGHT AND HE DOESN’T LOOK LIKE HE CAN STAND MUCH MORE! AFTER LAYING MINERVA OUT, DRAKE AND MYLES HAVE GIVEN IT ALL THEY HAVE!
James Peters: I FEEL LIKE THIS CROWD MIGHT RIOT IF DRAKE KING SOMEHOW PULLS THIS OFF! HE SMASHES A FOREARM ACROSS MYLES’ FACE AND THE CHAMP FIRES BACK! THERE WASN’T A LOT OF WEIGHT BEHIND THAT SHOT FROM MYLES, AND DRAKE FIRES BACK WITH ANOTHER FOREARM! MYLES MANAGES TO BLOCK THIS TIME AND HE SENDS DRAKE REELING WITH A DESPERATION HEADBUTT! MYLES NAILS DRAKE WITH ANOTHER ONE! AND ENDS UP BACKING HIM AGAINST THE CORNER! MYLES HEADBUTTS DRAKE OVER AND OVER!!!!
Rich Russillo: THOSE HEADBUTTS HAVE REOPENED SEVERAL WOUNDS THAT THESE TWO WARRIORS SUFFERED IN THIS BATTLE! MYLES AND DRAKE BOTH HAVE BLOOD DRIPPING DOWN THEIR FACE AND IT’S MYLES WHO KICKS DRAKE IN THE STOMACH AND PULLS HIM TOWARDS HIM!
Persephone: MYLES IS USING THE STRENGTH HE HAS LEFT TO TRY AND GET DRAKE UP! HE WANTS TO HIT THE ‘DE FACTO’ AND HOPEFULLY BRING THIS WAR TO AN END!
James Peters: BUT DRAKE IS NOT READY TO DIE! HE IS PUNCHING MYLES IN THE STOMACH AND RIBS, FORCING THE REIGNING AND DEFENDING CHAMPION TO LET HIM GO! DRAKE DARTS AWAY FROM MYLES, PUTTING SOME SPACE BETWEEN THEM AND HE TRIES TO REGROUP! MYLES IS RUSHING TOWARDS HIM, LOOKING FOR A RUNNING KNEE AND DRAKE IS UNABLE TO DEFEND IT! HE IS NAILED IN THE JAW AND MYLES DROPS HIM WITH A SPIKED DDT!
Rich Russillo: MYLES IS NOW ON TOP OF DRAKE AND UNLOADING THOSE GROUNDED, REPEATED FOREARMS! ALL THE PENT UP EMOTION MYLES HAS TRIED TO KEEP LOCKED UP TONIGHT IS FINALLY COMING OUT! DRAKE IS BEING ANNIHILATED RIGHT NOW!
( He couldn’t help himself. Myles emptied his own take. Once he was satisfied Drake was knocked out, he rolled off the other man, completely exhausted. The dome of the stadium was open, so the picture perfect night sky is what Myles found himself looking at. It had been a long, downright tortuous time for ‘The Warlord’ and the love of his life, but now he could put it all to bed and end the man he had so foolishly put his trust in. )
( Myles rolled onto his side and saw that Minerva was attempting to get up. She was bloodied and broken, and Myles felt his heart break. She had wanted tonight to be hers, although it was never really clear if she desired the championship or Drake’s head more. Myles was about to end up with both, and he could only hope that one day she would come to understand. It had to be this way, at least for him, and right now, he was in control of the situation. )
James Peters: It has been a long, grueling match for these former stablemates but it looks like the end is finally near. Myles is up and looking for something, and… oh no. Oh no.
Persephone: OH YES! OH YES! THE LAST BARBED WIRE MASSACRE MATCH IS ACTUALLY GOING TO RESULT IN A FUCKING DEATH!!!!!
Rich Russillo: :lupe: MYLES HAS THE SCISSOR BOARD AND IS BRINGING IT OVER TO DRAKE! THIS IS THE MOMENT WE HAVE BEEN WAITING ALL MATCH FOR!
( Minerva has pulled herself into a seated position, but she is clearly dazed. She had taken a beating in this match, but had more than done her fair share of damage. She could hear the crowd and she forced herself to focus, and when she saw Myles grab Drake, her eyes went wide. )
( Myles was going for the kill. There was no other way he could end it. Drake was too stubborn to stay down, and extreme measures had to be taken. Myles closed his eyes. He was not a man of prayer but he did let his mind go for a second. He thought of his parents, who had been gone for years but forever remained in the back of his mind. He thought of Minerva and the grief stricken look on her face as Drake did the unthinkable and used her own father’s blood to desecrate her mother’s final resting spot. He thought of himself and his failure to get the job done at King of Elite. If he had taken Drake out then, then perhaps nothing else would have happened. )
Persephone: LOW BLOW! LOW BLOW! MYLES JUST HAD HIS BALLS BUSTED!!!!
James Peters: DRAKE TOOK ADVANTAGE OF MYLES’ HESITATION AND WENT LIMP! THAT ALLOWED HIM TO SLIP OUT OF MYLES’ GRIP AND GET THE CHAMP WITH A LOW BLOW! MINERVA IS PUSHING HERSELF UP BUT DRAKE SNATCHES MYLES UP, THROWS HIM IN THE AIR, AND DROPS HIM NECK FIRST WITH ‘INFINITE VOID’!!!
( Minerva’s screams of terror echoed throughout the stadium. ‘Infinite Void’ was otherwise known as the Elevated Lumbar Check. It was Myles’ ultimate finisher, the most dangerous move in the champion’s arsenal, and Drake King had just taken it for himself. Minerva was frozen in fear as Myles landed on top of scissors, razor blades, and pizza cutters. With a blank look on his face and absolutely nothing in his dark eyes, Drake turned to Minerva. )
( Minerva rushed to Myles and quickly rolled him off the board. He was out of it, obviously, and for whatever reason, seeing him butchered at the hands of their common foe left her feeling raw. Tears welled in her eyes. Tears of despair and unbridled anger. )
Persephone: MINERVA IS UP AND SHE RUSHES DRAKE! SHE DRIVES HIM INTO THE CORNER AND SHE IS UNLOADING ON HIM! SHE IS RAINING BLOW AFTER BLOW ON ‘THE MESSIAH’ AND BEATING HIM DOWN INTO THE GROUND! EVERYTHING SHE HAS BEEN FEELING FOR THE LAST SEVEN MONTHS OR WHATEVER IS COMING OUT RIGHT NOW!
James Peters: MINERVA IS SCREAMING AT DRAKE AS SHE DRAGS HIM OUT OF THE CORNER! SHE’S CLEARLY BLINDED BY RAGE RIGHT NOW AS SHE SLAMS HER FIST INTO HIS HEAD! MINERVA IS TRYING TO GET TO THAT BOARD BUT DRAKE MANAGES TO HIT HER IN THE STOMACH! MINERVA TIGHTENS HER GRIP ON HIS HAIR AND CLUBS HIM IN THE HEAD!
Rich Russillo: DRAKE IS ABLE TO HIT HER IN THE STOMACH AGAIN BUT MINERVA DROPS AN ELBOW DOWN ON THE TOP OF HIS HEAD! SHE FIGHTS WITH DRAKE UNTIL HE IS ON HIS FEET AND SHE KNEES HIM IN THE GROIN!
( Much to Minerva’s shock, Drake doesn’t go down. A smile spreads across his face and he staggers to his feet, shaking his head and wagging his finger at Minerva. )
Drake King: (off-mic) You’re not going to get me with your filthy ways!
Persephone: LMFAOOOO! THIS DUDE WORE A CUP AND MINERVA CAN’T BELIEVE IT! SHE LUNGES FOR DRAKE BUT HE SIDE STEPS HER AND SHE NEARLY CRASHES INTO THE ROPES! DRAKE IS RIGHT THERE! HE ROLLS HER UP FROM BEHIND AND GRABS A HANDFUL OF TIGHTS! DRAKE IS GOING TO STEAL THE EAW WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP!!!!
Rich Russillo: MINERVA POWERED OUT AT THE LAST MINUTE! DRAKE SNATCHES HER BY THE HAIR BUT MINERVA HAS HIM BY THE LEGS! SHE IS TRYING TO PULL HIM DOWN ON THE MAT, BUT DRAKE STOMPS AWAY AT HER! SHE LETS DRAKE GO AND DODGES ANOTHER STOMP! MINERVA GRABS A HANDFUL OF BROKEN GLASS AND SHE FLINGS IT RIGHT AT DRAKE’S FACE!
( The crowd starts to murmur because while all this is going on, Myles has somehow, someway come back to life. He is in desperate need of medical attention, but like a true warrior, he has found a way to get himself up. His back has been destroyed and it’s obvious he is injured. But the crowd is now screaming for him and Myles can’t help but feel a surge of adrenaline. )
James Peters: HOLY SHIT! MYLES HAS FOUND A WAY TO GET UP, WHILE MINERVA HAS JUST BLINDED DRAKE WITH A HANDFUL OF GLASS! DRAKE IS CLAWING AT HIS FACE AND THERE’S ‘THE DARK’!!! MINERVA WITH THE BLACK MIST TO DRA-
Persephone: THIS BITCH HIT MYLES! MYLES TAKES THE MIST TO THE FACE AND DRAKE LEAPS UP, CONNECTING WITH ‘THE GUILLOTINE’ ON MYLES! MINERVA TRIES TO GRAB DRAKE BUT HE FLINGS HIMSELF TO THE GROUND AND ROLLS OUT OF THE RING!
Minerva: (off-mic) GET BACK IN THE YOU FUCKING PUSSY!
( Minvera’s voice cracks in at the end because she knows Drake is not going to get back in that ring. Drake is on the ground, one eye shut thanks to a piece of glass that is stuck in it. He is looking up at Minerva and a slow, bloody smile spreads across his face. )
( It was in that moment, Minerva felt her entire world come crashing down around her. Her heart shattered knowing that the choice between Drake’s head and the EAW World Championship had been made for her. Myles wasn’t going to get back up. Drake had seen to that thanks to his ‘Sick Kick’ finisher. )
( Satisfied with a job well down, Drake staggered to his feet and began to make his way from the ring. )
( Minerva watched him go and angry tears filled her ice blue eyes. This was not the ending she wanted. He was not supposed to win. Drake was supposed to be in Myles’ position, and she was supposed to be pinning him. Instead, it was her boyfriend, her love, the man who had given her his entire heart that was the last thing left between her and the EAW World Championship. Unable to stomach the sight of Drake King any longer, Minerva turned her back to and dropped down to her knees. )
Minerva: (off-mic) I’m sorry, my love.
( Shaking her head in disbelief, Minerva hooked Myles leg. )
( DING! DING! DING! )
Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… HERE IS YOUR WINNER AND NEW EAW WORLD CHAMPION… ‘THE BLACK ROSE’ MINERVA!!!!!
( ‘Blood, Milk, & Sky’ begins to blast across the PA system. Minerva rolls off Myles and buries her head in her hands. )
James Peters: The match we just witnessed will truly be something I will never forget. For everything the three members of New Eden have been through, I don’t think anyone ever expected for things to end quite like that…
Rich Russillo: Minerva had a choice to make. She could have followed Drake King out of the ring and finished what he started back at Road to Redemption, or she could pin Myles and become a two-time world champion. Ultimately, she picked the championship.
( The referee has come over to Minerva and given her the EAW World Championship. It was the belt she had coveted and wanted more than anything, but for some reason, the victory didn’t taste as sweet as it should have. She sat the title down and turned her attention to Myles. He was the man who had loved her unconditionally, supported her and defended her, and the person who had taken care of her whenever she had been hurt. Minerva gently took Myles in her arms and touched her head to his. )
( A few seconds later, Myles was able to wrap his arms around her. Right there in the middle of the ring, the two lovers embraced. No, they didn’t get the ending they wanted, but it was an ending nonetheless. Drake had stopped in his tracks upon hearing the crowd cheering. He glanced up at the Titan Tron, and saw what was going on inside the ring. He couldn’t believe the two of them were hugging. )
( Myles and Minerva pulled apart, and Minerva cupped Myles face with her hands. It seemed pointless to ask him if he was okay, because clearly he wasn’t, so she pressed her lips against his. Myles felt relief flood through him. His body was racked with pain. He couldn’t remember what had happened to him at the end. But what mattered most is that Minerva was there beside him. )
Myles: (off-mic) Siobhan…
Minerva: (off-mic) Don’t try and talk right now. We need to get you out of this ring.
( Officials and medical personnel had already made their way to the ring. They had rushed past Drake, who was still as could be on the stage, watching the video tron along with everyone else. Two officials were cutting away at the barbed wire so they could remove it and get a stretcher inside. )
Myles: (off-mic) I’m fine.
( Despite the situation, Minerva smiled. Myles wasn’t fine right now, but he would be. Both of them would be. She brushed his hair off his face and kissed his forehead. Myles reached down and started fiddling with his wrestling boot. )
Minerva: (off-mic) Is your ankle hurt?
( Myles shook his head. He unlaced the boot and waved off the people who got into the ring to tend to him. Turning the boot over, a small, yellow envelope had dropped. Myles had placed it in his boot, next to his ankle before the match. Reaching into the envelope, he pulled something out and with a monumental amount of effort, he pulled away from Minerva and somehow, managed to bring himself onto one knee. )
Minerva: (off-mic) Marco…
( Myles shows her a ring. Minerva’s jaw drops open upon seeing it. It’s a small, silver antique ring that is surrounded with semi-precious turquoise stones, with a small, black heart made of onyx in the middle. It was the ring Minerva’s father had given her mother on their wedding day. )
Myles: (off-mic) Siobhan… will you spend the rest of your life with me?
( Minerva can’t even speak. All she can do is nod her head. She falls into Myles’ arms and the two cling to one another as fireworks go off, bringing the first day of Pain for Pride to a close. )
( Meanwhile on the stage, Drake’s face has twisted into a horrible look. He had wanted Myles and Minerva to destroy one another. He had been convinced it would be her greed that would be their undoing. But it looked like everything had only brought the two of them closer together. It made him sick. )
( As the scene started to fade and the commentary team signed off, Persephone marveled over how no one ever triggered the exploding corner :wow:. Minerva had let Myles slip the ring on her finger and they stood up, together, united as one, and Minerva raised the EAW World Championship in the air. It would always be them. Myles and Minerva against the world. )
( And they wouldn’t have it any other way. )
( EAW logo buzzes. )
