(EAW Intro plays)
(SCREENBAR— Earlier Tonight)
(Camera opens to a panning down shot of the Rocco Forte Hotel Amigo in Brussels, Belgium just as a town car with a private driver pulls up. The private driver steps out of the car and opens the rear driver side door. Big Mike steps out wearing a sleek blue suit with a yellow tie and a bouquet of roses in his hand. He looks to the driver)
Big Mike: Get my breath.
(The driver pulls out a bottle of what appears to be Binaca and Big Mike opens wide as the driver sprays it to freshen his breath. He moves his mouth around before exhaling, satisfied. We see him walk in and the camera follows him through the door of the hotel. We can’t see much behind Big Mike’s large frame but we hear the elevator ding and Big Mike freezes where he is.)
Big Mike: Y—you… you’re amazing…
(Camera pans around to see Kassidy Heart who has just stepped off the elevator and sending a text in her phone before tucking it back into her purse. She looks up with the expression of a woman who has resigned herself to her own death. She wears a red form fitting, long sleeved turtleneck body con dress that stops at mid-thigh, over the knee, stiletto leopard print boots from Manolo Blahnik. She has a designer black fur coat pulled over her shoulders and her hair has been done in Victoria Secret style waves. She wears light makeup, topped off with her trade mark lipstick shade “Ruby Woo” by MAC. Big Mike hands her the bouquet and she apathetically tosses it to the lap of a homely looking woman on the lobby couch. She sees Big Mike looking her up and down, enthralled. She rolls her eyes)
Kassidy Heart: Please stop eyeballing me. I didn’t even get dressed up. This is what I wore to buy lunch today.
Big Mike: That must’ve been a nice ass lunch.
Kassidy Heart: *annoyed* I’m only here because of the bet last week. Don’t get any idiotic ideas. Make this short and simple so I can get back to the hotel for an evening massage and maybe I don’t have you disemboweled, Kay? Kay.
Big Mike: Oh I got a great night planned for us. It’s gonna be a date you ain’t never gonna forget.
Kassidy Heart: Can we avoid the word “date”? I prefer… obligatory kidnapping.
Big Mike: Hey…. you ain’t gonna be saying that when you have this dinner I got planned. Five star restaurant. Only the best for a goddess who blesses me with her presence.
Kassidy Heart: Five star restaurant? You actually got a table at a high end restaurant? Hmmm..
Big Mike: That’s right, baby girl. You know they call me the James Harden of shootin my shot. Even if I miss the first attempt I’m gettin to the line for points.
Kassidy Heart: Fine. I may not enjoy the company. But if that’s the case I can attempt to enjoy the activity. But like I said, don’t you dare go getting any ideas about how tonight is going to go. And never call me “baby girl”.
(Big Mike escorts Kassidy to the town car where the driver waits with the door open, Kassidy slides in and takes a seat in the car. Big Mike shuts the door behind her and runs around the other side, he whispers something to the driver, then climbs into the car before they pull off)
(Showdown Intro plays for the broadcast before opening to the cheering crowd in the Palais 12 in Brussels, Belgium)
(SCREENBAR— Sold Out)
(Camera pans across the crowd seeing various signs including “Geit”, “Ik ben met stom”, and “Nederlandse oven”. The crowd is going wild as the Camera pans over to see Pierre McGuire and Deadprez at the commentary desk)
Pierre Mcguire: WELCOME TO ANOTHER EXCITING EDITION OF EAW’S FLAGSHIP PROGRAM, SATURDAY NIGHT SHOWDOWN!!! WE ARE HOT ON THE ROAD TO KING OF ELITE AND WE HAVE A FANTASTIC SHOW FOR YOU TONIGHT INCLUDING A NEW BREED DIVISION EXHIBITION, TWO NEW TALENT DEBUTS, AND OUR MAIN EVENT WILL SEE MALCOLM JONES DEFEND HIS INTERWIRE CHAMPIONSHIP IN A TLC MATCH AGAINST THREE OF SHOWDOWN’S YOUNGEST AND HUNGRIEST COMPETITORS!!!
Deadprez: And that’s not all! We’ve been told to expect not only a special guest, but Hurricane Hawk is going to be out here tonight to make an announcement regarding the EAW Championship match at King of Elite! All of this plus so much more! Let’s not waste any time as we get things kicking off for the night!
(Camera pans over the crowd again as “No Regrets” by Pusha T hits to a pop. Hurricane Hawk walks out to the stage and down the ramp, waving to the crowd as he does. He walks around the ring and grabs a microphone from the timekeepers area before walking up the steps and entering the ring through the ropes)
Hurricane Hawk: Hello, Brussels, and welcome to Saturday Night Showdown!!!!
Hurricane Hawk: Yeah! I like that energy! So as you all know, we do things our own way here on Showdown. I spent years fighting in this ring so believe in getting things done tonight here in the ring. That said, there have been far too many attacks between Showdown stars and Voltage stars lately. Specifically I mean the feud between Drake King and Xander Payne, who even got Myles wrapped up in their personal drama this past week when Drake retaliated to Xander by invading Voltage. Now I can appreciate their drive to want to beat their enemy, the drive to prove you’re the best, to want to get the job done yourself. But I already said Drake would be punished for this and I know for a fact that Matt Daniels isn’t happy with the recent actions of Xander or even the reaction Myles gave last week. Therefore, let me welcome tonight’s special guest, the Voltage Commissioner himself, Captain Charisma!
(“Self Help Tape” by Moses Sumney hits as Matt Daniels walks out waving to the cheering Showdown crowd. He also grabs a microphone and climbs up into the ring)
Matt Daniels: Man… Captain Charisma in a Showdown ring. Been a minute since that was the case.
Hurricane Hawk: We appreciate you coming by, Matt. But this isn’t a walk down memory lane. We’ve got important matters to attend to.
Matt Daniels: Right, right. Ok. So you still haven’t exactly told me why you didn’t wanna do this in your office so maybe we should get to that.
Hurricane Hawk: Well to sound overly simple, it’s like I was just saying. We’ve settled things inside this ring for years of our careers and I look at things like what we’ve got between Xander and Drake and I see the issue. They obviously both need to take their lumps and be punished for what has happened. And then you see Myles getting involved, Xander and Drake have dragged him down to their issue. So much so that Drake has been forced to stay away from the building tonight. So I wanna separate the situation.
Matt Daniels: You wanna punish Drake and Xander in someway before they keep dragging others into it?
Hurricane Hawk: Not quite. My suggestion is that we actually contradict ourselves and instead of punishing them, we lean into the situation. There’s fire, there’s hunger there. Maybe we let Drake and Xander have one more match at King of Elite to settle things. Their punishment is each other. Just like I’ve been saying, it gets settled once and for all inside the ring.
(Daniels raises his eyebrows and scratches his head as he thinks.)
Matt Daniels: Ok. I see you. But I wanna make one change to it. Let’s add Myles and make it a triple threat. He’s had issues with Xander in the past and has gotten himself just as deeply involved as the other two after last week. And going multiman of course brings in the no disqualification rule, so they have full access to settle who wants it most.
(Hawk nods his head in agreement)
Hurricane Hawk: You’ve got a deal. Drake King versus Xander Payne versus Myles in a triple threat at King of Elite.
(The non-English speaking crowd looks heavily confused)
Hurricane Hawk: Well, Brussels…
(Crowd pops heavy for their hometown name)
Hurricane Hawk: It looks like we have another big match for King of Elite and—
(“Starboi” by The Weeknd hits to boos and Ahren Fournier walks out wearing his signature fur coat and leather pants with a microphone in one hand and the EAW Championship over his opposite shoulder.)
Ahren Fournier: Blah blah blah blah blah. Look, it’s all nice and fun that you two are having your little “ten years later, where are they now” kinda moment. Really. Tear jerking stuff. But you’re so damn focused on some undercard bullshit when you know damn well the announcement everyone wants to hear.
Matt Daniels: Even on Showdown you just gotta demand the spotlight, don’t you?
Ahren Fournier: You’re damn right. And I’m not gonna sit here while I have to listen to this drivel any longer.
Hurricane Hawk: You May be the champion but I am your general manager and—
Ahren Fournier: Don’t you have something to steal from CM Banks? You stole his girl way back in the day. You stole his job once Theron ran his ass out. Maybe I should be the one to put your hanging on by a thread ass out to pasture. Then you can keep copying CM Banks by not being here anymore. Get to what I wanna hear.
(Hawk brushes the comments off but stares a laser through Ahren)
Hurricane Hawk: Well I was gonna do this later tonight but if you just wanna cut to the chase then here we are. Ahren, I wanna let you and Chris Elite know what the stipulation to your match at King of Elite will be. This is a big matchup so I think it’d be best if we took advantage of that. You’ll defend your title in—
Ahren Fournier: NO!
Hurricane Hawk: :dahell:
Ahren Fournier: I have given my blood, sweat, and tears for too damn long. I finally got my hands on this title after being ignored for so long and you wanna put me in some obscure trashy deathmatch or something? Hell no. It’s my first defense and I am picking the stipulation.
Matt Daniels: You still have the same attitude as—
(Hawk motions for Matt to let it go)
Hurricane Hawk: I’ll hear you out. What’s your idea for the match?
Ahren Fournier: I don’t trust Chris not to fuck things up with his Gawd Contract. I don’t trust that Big Mike won’t get his Grande Miguel ass involved to help his little hoodlum homie. So if I can’t trust it then I’m gonna take a page out of you past timers’ book and lean into it. Falls count anywhere. That way Kassidy can keep Big Mike at bay while Chris is stuck wherever I take him instead of jumping off of the turnbuckles every ten seconds.
Matt Daniels: This is just an obvious ploy so you can worm your way—
Hurricane Hawk: You know what… I actually like it. You’ve got your match, Ahren. Falls count anywhere at King of Elite for the EAW Championship.
(Ahren grins on the stage and nods his head with a mischievous expression before turning to leave)
Matt Daniels (off mic): You realize what you’ve just done right?
Hurricane Hawk (off mic): I guess we’re gonna find out.
(Camera fades as both men exit the ring)
(Commercial for Peanut Butter: “Jelly, baby, lets stop this fighting. Together we make the best meatless sandwich in the world. Let’s give this another shot. What do you say?”)
(The camera pans into the arena as “Warriors” by Imagine Dragons plays as Samuel Steele and Michael Shaw come out together to a mixed ovation from the crowd
Aaron Fitzpatrick: THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SET FOR ONE FALL!!
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!
Aaron Fitzpatrick: INTRODUCING FIRST….AT A COMBINED WEIGHT OF FOUR HUNDRED AND SEVEN POUNDS……TTHHHEE DDRRAAGGOOONN SSLLAAYYERRRSS!!!!
Deadprez: Oh mother of god.
Pierre McGuire: Dragon Slayers have NOT had a great stretch as of late including last week losing in quick fashion to TLA and Shane Gates..but each day is a new day right?
(Samuel Steele and Michael Shaw get in the ring together as their theme fades and ‘La Marmelade de Ma Grand Mère’ by Florent Caubien blares the speakers and Provencal comes out energetic trying to pump up the crowd)
(Provencal continues trying to pump up the crowd and his theme dies down as “Fat” by Weird Al as the crowd looks in confusion and Chudd slowly begins walking to the ring)
Aaron Fitzpatrick: AND INTRODUCING THEIR OPPONENTS…BOTH MAKING THEIR EAW DEBUTS….PPRROOVVVEEENNNCCAALLL AND CCHHUDD!!!
Deadprez: Well…this seems like a odd pairing, and that might be a bit of an understatement.
Pierre McGuire: Well we haven’t seen them in the ring yet so let’s see what they got here in their debuts!
(Provencal runs and slides in the ring as Chudd slowly walks up the steps and stands on the apron presuming he is not starting the match and Samuel agrees he’s gonna start as the music fades)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Pierre McGuire: And we are set to begin here as both men lock up in the center of the ring. Samuel has him in a headlock now and Provencal pushes him off to the ropes and Samuel hits him with a shoulder knockdown.
Samuel Steele: This all you got?
Deadprez: Samuel is talking a lot of shit for someone on a losing streak.
Pierre McGuire: Samuel now runs to the ropes and Provencal rises to his feet and connects with the drop toe hold and Samuel goes face first into the second rope. Provencal now puts his knee on the head of Samuel and now the referee begins the count.
Referee: ONE…TWO…THREE….FOUR…BACK OFF!!
Pierre McGuire: The referee finally gets some distance between the two and Provencal tries to go back to work right away but Samuel WITH A HARD ELBOW TO THE FACE OF PROVENCAL AND PROVENCAL STUMBLES A FEW STEPS! Samuel Steele now charges and hits a running neckbreaker! He right away picks up Provencal and drives him into the corner and tags in his partner Michael and now they do a double suplex! Provencal needs a tag in soon,
Deadprez: Michael now runs to the ropes and bounces off and HITS A JUMPING ELBOW DROP! DID YOU SEE THAT ELEVATION?! HE COVERS!!
Deadprez: Provencal is able to get out of it. But how much longer can he stay in it? Michael now slowly gets Provencal to his feet and WOAH OUT OF NOWHERE PROVENCAL SLAPS MICHAEL HARD IN THE FACE! MICHAEL SEEMS SHOCKED AND HE RUNS RIGHT INTO A DROPKICK AND PROVENCAL GOES AND TAGS IN HIS PARTNER CHUDD!
Pierre McGuire: Chudd now looks around before charging at Michael and a BIG BODY SPLASH IN THE CORNER!! CHUDD NOW THROWS MICHAEL DOWN TO THE MAT AND HE CLIMBS TO THE SECOND ROPE….ANOTHER SPLASH!! BUT NOBODY IS HOME!!! MICHAEL AVOIDED SERIOUS DISASTER THERE! Michael tags his partner in and Chudd is trying as well but he moved too slowly and Samuel Steele has his leg refusing it to happen! Chudd is trying to kick off Samuel but Samuel is holding on with all his power!!! CHUDD NOW WITH ONE LAST TRY AND HE THROWS SAMUEL OUT OF THE RING WITH HIS FEET!!
Deadprez: Chudd gets the tag and is winded but Provencal is in and the illegal man Michael is in the ring and charges at Provencal but Provencal back body drops him out of the ring!! THE LEGAL MAN SAMUEL IS BACK IN THE RING NOW AND HE RUNS AND HITS PROVENCAL IN THE BACK OF HIS HEAD! SAMUEL TURNS AROUND AND TAUNTS TO THE CROWD. BUT OH MY GOD THE CAMERA DIDN’T CATCH IT BUT RIGHT BEHIND SAMUEL PROVENCAL ROLLS UP SAMUEL!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(Provencal hauls ass out of the ring as his theme hits and up the ramp celebrating and Chudd slowly walks down the steps to the ramp)
Aaron Fitzpatrick: HERE IS YOUR WINNERS…..PPPROOVVEENNCAALLL AND CHHHUUDDD!!!
Pierre McGuire:: I mean….I’m at a loss for words. These two guys came in here and won their debut match against a legit tag team here in EAW!
Deadprez: I mean..come on now….
Pierre McGuire: It’s still a win in your debut match! Give credit to The Dragon Slayers though….they just took their eye off the ball for one second and paid for it big time.
(Chudd and Provencal make their way back through the curtain as the camera shows Michael pounding the mat with his fist and Samuel with his head between his knees)
Deadprez: Yeah but you begin to wonder how many more times you can take your eye off the ball before you realize you’re playing the wrong game. Eventually you—
(“Can’t Be Touched” by Roy Jones jr. hits as Terry Chambers walks out with a microphone in his hand.)
Pierre Mcguire: What is Terry doing here?
(Terry marches down the ramp and climbs in the ring, seeming to ignore the Dragon Slayers who stare at him for a moment before standing)
Terry Chambers: I got a message for—
Deadprez: SHAW JUST PUNCHED TERRY IN THE GUT! He’s getting in the big mans face, or as close as he can reach to it! And Steele joins him! Terry just invaded on their ring time but is there really a need to throw your frustrations at Terry like this?
Pierre Mcguire: They want to show they still have it after losing that match and— TERRY HAS HAD ENOUGH AND PLANTS THE END OF THE MICROPHONE INTO SHAWS FOREHEAD!!! HE SCOOPS STEELE UP ON HIS SHOULDERS! TERRY WITH A T-5!!! AND STEELE LANDED ON TOP OF SHAW! TERRY GRABS BOTH MEN BY THE HAIR AND THROWS THEM BETWEEN THE ROPES TO THE OUTSIDE!! HE JUST DESTROYED THEM!
(Medics rush down and begin to usher the Dragon Slayers away while tending to Shaw’s busted open forehead while Terry looks on, seething)
Terry Chambers: How do you like that, Hawk? Is that enough to be added to the Interwire title match tonight? You know, I don’t get it…instead of putting a dominant force like myself in the match you go ahead and let Jax Walker in? What, are you trying to get a ‘Wounded Warriors’ vibe going? He couldn’t even beat Drake King without help, but all of a sudden this guy is a threat to MJ? Oh, and don’t get me started on Jake Smith…if there were ever a textbook definition of someone in over their head, it’s him. That’s the kind of competition you offer the Interwire title? Really, Hawk? A boring, friendzoned GI Joe, and someone who can barely keep up? Are you sure that you weren’t hit in the head a little harder than you thought at Road to Redemption, Hawk? And lets not forget Solomon. He’s the reason this should get me a title shot, right? Because he beat the hell outta Caine to get into the match all before their qualifier started. And with a fucking sledgehammer. What the hellos—
???: What’s the matter, Terry, afraid you’re going to be forgotten as you fade to obscurity?
(Solomon walks out onto the stage, microphone in hand. Terry snarls at the sight of the Fallen Son.)
Terry Chambers: I’m going to give you one warning, take a look at the Dragon Slayers right now, you wanna be very careful about how my name comes out of your mouth…very careful!
(Solomon holds up his hand, trying to calm Terry down.)
Solomon: Whoa, there, take it easy! Do you wanna know why I’m in the TLC for the Interwire title and you aren’t? It’s because of what I bring to the table: The purest form of combat. See, I excel in unbridled violence. I’m the future, Terry, not you, because soon all of EAW will fell the cleansing purity that can only be brought about by that very violence I embody… but you, Terry? You’ve never even won a title, have you? And I’m about to become a champion this quickly? That must be difficult for you.
Terry Chambers: You listen and you listen well. It takes only a small spark to get one title shot. But it takes a bonfire to be here as long as I have. You may have won a few brawls. But I’ve been through wars. And I’ve still kept going regardless of results. Let’s see how things go when you really take a punch in the teeth tonight.
Solomon: A punch in my teeth? No no. You see tonight the EAW universe learns another lesson about Dystopia! They will learn what beautiful combat truly is! And they will now before their new Interwire Champion! But Terry… I did in fact see the work you just did to the Dragon Slayers and I must say it was beautiful. You may have what it takes to really learn from the Dystopian way! Join me Terry! Let me take you under my wing and teach you! Maybe with your bonfire partnered with my methods and understanding, you may actually find major success in this industry!
Terry Chambers: Shut the Hell up! Do you talk just to listen to yourself? How about this, you like violence so much? Fine, how about I come down there, put my fist through your face, and take your spot in the TLC?
(Terry drops the mic and Solomon grins as Terry moves toward him.)
Solomon: One day that’d be wonderful. But tonight I must keep myself fresh.
(Solomon hurries back through the curtain and disappears as Terry runs towards him, but loses him)
(Commercial plays for EAW 2k19 ‘Fox DLC’, featuring new match types such as ‘Object on a pole’ and ‘Pillow Fight’.)
(Shot opens to see the black town car pulling into a parking lot and taking a space. The driver steps out and lets Bug Mike out, who proceeds to open the car door for Kassidy. Kassidy steps out with a smile, partly from excitement to see the classiest restaurant in Brussels, but primarily because it means Big Mike won’t be asking “you good?” Every 45 seconds now that they’re out of the car)
Big Mike: I hope you are ready for the culinary experience of a lifetime.
Kassidy Heart: I have to say I’m a little curious to see… what the fuck?
(Camera pans to see that Kassidy has realized they are outside of a building that resembles an American diner with flickering neon lights around the outside. Kassidy looks disgusted and immediately pulls her phone out of her purse, appears to send a quick text before stowing it away again)
Big Mike: Haven’s Chicken and Belgian Waffles! The best this side of Sweden!
(Kassidy’s expression melts to sheer disappointment)
Kassidy Heart: B-b-but you said it was five stars…
Big Mike: *with an excited and idiotic grin* IT IS!! My man Big Tony took his girl here when they was on this fancy ass vacation and it was so tight that he gave it five stars on Yelp!
(Big Mike begins to walk towards the door and Kassidy follows not knowing what else to do. They walk inside and much to Kassidy’s pain it’s the type of restaurant where you order T the counter. A woman with about seven total yellow teeth stands at a cash register, smiling at the two.)
Woman: Mag ik uw bestelling opnemen?
Big Mike: *reading from google translate*
Twee borsten, twee dijen, vijf wafels met extra siroop en een kersentaart als toetje. *he looks over to kassidy* Whatchu want, girl?
(Still stunned at the location, Kassidy became very grateful she’d already had a meal that day. She looked up at the menu and chose the one thing she believed she could stomach from the greasy establishment)
Kassidy Heart: Do you at least have purified water?.
(Scene fades on the expression of disdain in Kassidy’s eyes)
(The camera cuts to Aaron Fitzpatrick in the ring.)
Aaron Fitzpatrick: The following is a Fatal 4 Way Match and it is scheduled for one fall!!!
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!
Deadprez: Are we sure a Fatal 4 Way match doesn’t have four falls?
Pierre McGuire: …
(“All Out Life” by Slipknot hits to cheers from the crowd!!!)
Aaron Fitzpatrick: Introducing first from Huntington Beach, California weighing in at 210 pounds “The Natural Born Killer” SHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANE GATES!!!
(Shane Gates comes down the ramp stretching in the ring and getting his body prepared to unleash his lethal arsenal of submission holds.)
Deadprez: Shane Gates isn’t called the Submission Psychopath for nothing! He will go crazy and lock you in holds you have never dreamed of!
Pierre McGuire: Indeed Dead and once he does there is truly no escape! Just like there is no escape for him in this match. Shane talked his talk this week acting like he shouldn’t even be in this match and even called his opponents “jobbers”! Those are fighting words and I sure hope Shane doesn’t take his opponents too likely!
(“Lowlife” by Theory of a Deadman hits to boos from the crowd!!!)
Aaron Fitzpatrick: Introducing next from Dallas, Texas weighing in at 305 pounds he is “The Blue Collar Brawler” COOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOODY MARSHALL!!!
(Cody Marshall makes his way down to the ring waving an American flag and attempting to start a “USA” chant as the enraged Belgium crowd continues to boo and throw trash at him.)
Deadprez: Cody Marshall has been talking mad shit all week as well about his opponents. He says he is going to shut down Showdown just like the US government!
Pierre McGuire: Say what you will about his attitude Cody Marshall is one tough motherfucker and he has proven it on Showdown time and time again. Last year was something of a break-out year for Cody as he took on some of the best talent EAW has to offer and even competed for the top title in the business! This is not a man to take lightly!!!
(“All Fall Down” by Charlie Madson, Tom De Jager, James Falconi, Richard Quinn, and Sarah-Jane Norman hits to cheers from the crowd!!!)
Deadprez: EAW corporate is forcing me to apologize for my comments from last week about Justiciar Eric. Apparently he was “offended” by my politically incorrect remarks about his career. So with all due respect I deeply apologize. You are a great guy and a great wrestler and I am really impressed with your work.
Pierre McGuire: I really hope you aren’t being sarcastic Dead. Justiciar Eric had the best match of his career last week against Jake Smith. While he came up short he put on the fight of his life in that Street Fight and showed he is willing to do whatever it takes to win. I for one was appalled at the bias you showed last week and hope you check yourself in the future.
Aaron Fitzpatrick: Introducing third from Jacksonville, Florida weighing in at 220 pounds… “The Lord of Order” JUSTICIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIARRR ERRRRRRRRRIC!!!
Deadprez: I mean it’s hard tho when as soon as he lost that match he went on a series of whiny rants about taking over the company and telling everyone to go fuck themselves if they support Jake Smith. Then his comments on this week’s match where he stated outright “I just don’t care”. Tell me how I am supposed to give positive commentary on this guy. Not only that but he then threatened to assault me… a non-wrestler with a baseball bat. Is that supposed to win me over?
Pierre McGuire: Well if he does do that it would certainly win me over!
(“DESTROYA” by My Chemical Romance hits to outraged boos from the crowd!!!)
Aaron Fitzpatrick: Introducing last but not least from Melbourne, Australia weighing in at 230 pounds… “The Missile” JOSHUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUA NICHOLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLSSS!!!
Deadprez: Joshua Nicholls is by far one of my favorite new Elitists on the roster! A real Australian badass! Jamie O’Hara could never.
Pierre McGuire: Umm you do realize you are comparing a relative newcomer to the most successful World Champ in EAW history right?
Deadprez: It’s because I see potential Pierre. Your hating ass might not but I see great things in Joshua Nicholls. He is like a missile and he is pointed straight for the top!
Pierre McGuire: Or like most missiles… crash and burn. But hey I don’t have anything against this guy. He is an impressive athlete and has declared he is bringing the Revolution to EAW! If he can live up to his talk that means we will be seeing big changes around here in the era of Nicholls!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Deadprez: We are underway as all four men immediately charge in and begin to beat the living shit out of each other. Justiciar Eric is the first to go down as he catches a hard right hand in the jaw from the big hoss Cody Marshall!!! Joshua Nicholls and Shane Gates appear to be more evenly matched as they continue to trade punches all around the ring! Wait no! Nicholls and Gates both turning on Marshall as they begin to beat down on him bending him over towards the mat! Cody going down as Gates and Nicholls deliver hard clubbing shots to his back!!! Nicholls pulls Cody up as he and Nicholls hoist him up over on top of their shoulders. What could they have planned here!!!
Pierre McGuire: Joshua Nicholls and Shane Gates toss Cody Marshall over the top rope!!! Cody crashes down hard hitting his head on the barrier at ringside as he looks to be out cold! Damn that had to hurt! But wait in the ring! Justiciar Eric is back up and he has rolled Shane Gates up!!!
Referee: ONEEEEEEE!!! TWO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Deadprez: But Joshua Nicholls immediately breaks it up! Eric had to know that wasn’t going to cut it pinning the man right in front of the other guy! Eric looks enraged anyway as he now gets in the face of Nicholls as the two men appear to be taunting each other and talking shit to each other’s faces! But Shane Gates is back up as he charges in! But Eric ducks and Gates punches Nicholls instead! And Nicholls doesn’t care if it was a mistake! He fires back assaulting Gates with his own two hands! But Gates catches the fist! He wrestles Nicholls down to the mat and applies a Cross Armbar to his opponent! The struggle is real here but Eric in to break it up by stomping hard on the arm of Nicholls! Gates up but Eric takes him down with a leaping Dropkick! Nicholls slowly back up as Eric taunts him challenging him to return to his feet! Eric is ready for him!!! NO WAIT!!!
Pierre McGuire: JOSHUA NICHOLLS IMMEDIATELY CONNECTS WITH THE KANGAROO KICK TO JUSTICIAR ERIC!!! THE COVER!!!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! THRR—
Deadprez: Justiciar Eric kicks out!!! HOW CAN THIS BE?!?!?!?
Pierre McGuire: Justiciar Eric showing some real determination here tonight as I really thought that Joshua Nicholls had this thing won here… Extremely resourceful with that desperation Superkick there pretty much out of nowhere catching Eric off guard. Gotta hand it to Nicholls mah boi got some mad skillz!!!
Deadprez: He beastin’ like a motherfucker goin’ hard n shit like they do. Real one. Respect due. Meanwhile it appears that Cody Marshall is making his way back up to the ringside area… But Shane Gates sends himself lunging through the ropes to the outside!!! Suicide Dive obliterating Cody and taking him down! This leaves Joshua Nicholls and Justiciar Eric alone in the ring as Nicholls looks to follow up on his move! He grabs Eric… WAIT NO! SMALL PACKAGE!!!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! THRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR-
Pierre McGuire: Kickoutmania is running wild here in Belgium as Justiciar Eric fails to steal another win! He is pounding angrily on the mat because he thought he had this thing won!
Justiciar Eric: SCREW ALL OF YOU!!!
Deadprez: Oh shit Justiciar Eric is getting MAD! REAL MAD!
Pierre McGuire: Justiciar Eric unleashes a flurry of rage punches onto Joshua Nicholls! Nicholls desperately trying to escape as he slides under the bottom rope to the outside to escape the hard closed fists of Eric! But he slides out of the ring and right into the fire as Cody Marshall and Shane Gates are duking it out on the outside of the ring! Wait here comes Eric over the top rope!!! SPRINGBOARD SHOOTING STAR PRESS OVER THE TOP! HE COMES CRASHING DOWN ONTO ALL THREE OPPONENTS ON THE OUTSIDE!!!
Deadprez: HOLY SHIT! WHAT AN INCREDIBLE HIGH FLYER! I LOVE YOU ERIC!!!
Pierre McGuire: Justiciar Eric’s incredible maneuver even winning over his biggest haters like Deadprez!!! Truly spectacular performance here tonight!!!
(A replay airs showing Justiciar Eric completing a death defying Shooting Star Press from the top rope to the outside of the ring!!!)
Deadprez: Cody Marshall slides back into the ring as Eric follows him in and punt kicks him hard in the head before sliding into the cover!!!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
Pierre McGuire: But Cody Marshall kicks out with authority!!! Eric is sent flying across the ring as Cody hulks up and begins his rampage!!! Cody beating Eric down in the corner and now stomping a mudhole into his punk ass!!! Cody with a look of fury on his face as he rains down blow after blow after blow to his opponent! Eric can’t even defend himself!!! Wait from behind! Shane Gates grabs Cody Marshall from behind climbing onto the big mans back and wrapping his arms around his neck! Sleeper Hold applied!!! Cody Marshall down to one knee!!! But Justiciar Eric with a Superkick to Gates! What is he thinking! Gates could have just taken out Cody! But wait! Gates held onto Cody as he fell back and threw him back with a German Suplex!!! Gates rolls back up as Eric is stunned that his superkick appears to have had no effect! Gonna have to kick harder than that to keep Shane Gates down buddy!!! Now Gates grabs the head of Eric and begins to repeatedly bash it off the turnbuckle! Eric dizzy as he falls back… right into the arms of Gates! DECAPITATOR IS APPLIED!!! THE SUBMISSION PSYCHOPATH HAS HIS MOST PSYCHOPATHIC SUBMISSION OF ALL TIME APPLIED! ERIC HAS NO CHOICE BUT TO TAP OUT!!!
Deadprez: Eric is completely trapped here!! Can he hold on!!! He’s gonna give up! He’s about to quit on both this match and life itself!!!
Pierre McGuire: I hope he doesn’t go that far Dead! But he might be in risk of serious life altering injury if he doesn’t tap out soon! Wait from above!!! IT’S JOSHUA NICHOLLS!!! A 450 SPLASH OFF THE TOP AS HE COMES CRASHING DOWN ONTO ERIC AND GATES!!! GOOD GOD WHAT A PICTURE PERFECT AERIAL MANEUVER AS ALL THREE MEN ARE LAID OUT! WAIT WHERE IS THE FOURTH MAN?!?!?
Deadprez: He is back up! Cody Marshall back up with anger in his eyes as he grabs the skull of Joshua Nicholls with one hand palming it like a basketball! I feel that Cody could crush his bones in his very hands if he so chose! What a complete god among men! CODY PLACES HIS MASSIVE HANDS AROUND THE NECK OF JOSHUA NICHOLLS AS HE IS SQUEEZING THE LIFE OUT OF THIS MAN!!! HE LIFTS HIM UP TO THE HEAVENS… AND BRINGS HIM CRASHING DOWN!!!
Pierre McGuire: RAPTURE CONNECTS!!! THE COVER!!!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Aaron Fitzpatrick: Here is your winner… COOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOODY MARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRSHALLLL!!!!
(“Lowlife” by Theory of a Deadman hits as Cody Marshall has his arm raised in victory by the referee!!!)
Deadprez: What a major victory for ‘Murica!!! Showing these Belgians what real freedom is! USA! USA! USA!!!
Pierre McGuire: I respect your patriotism Dead. However, I respect Cody’s skills more as all four men were extremely impressive in this match. Yet somehow the big dawg was able to come out on top! I see big things for all the guys in this match ahead! Great work everyone!!

(Camera opens to see Matt Daniels and Hurricane Hawk together at a table at catering.)
Matt Daniels: Sorry, Hawk. I definitely didn’t see anything that night at Road To Redemption.
Hurricane Hawk: I didn’t figure but I gotta ask everyone. I don’t care so much about the fact that I was attacked even. What’s worrying is there hasn’t been anything like it since then. At least nothing matching what happened to me. Usually people get into behavioral patterns around EAW but this… it’s unsettling. Like I’m actively waiting for something to happen.
Matt Daniels: Well you got the new security head working on it right?
Hurricane Hawk: Yeah. Leo Quinn. Nice guy if a little bland. But he’s stuck in red tape. We gotta get security tapes from the stadium in Montreal but it’s international and there’s some bullshit red tape he’s working through. Has been for a few weeks actually.
Matt Daniels: No clues from any of your roster? You have a few who seem like they may want to force people to kneel before them or something along that line.
Hurricane Hawk: Nothing. Started interviews last week and so far we haven’t gotten anywhere.
Matt Daniels: Hey man. It’s not like this is the craziest shit you’ve ever seen around here. You remember the days before this place was “elite”? Ha. Man those were some damn wars.
(Hawk just stares at him, thinking. After a moment he speaks)
Hurricane Hawk: I’ll be honest Cap. That’s what worries me. Something about this gives me a bad feeling. And it makes me wonder if we’re heading into a dark age. If something would just happen then maybe I’d be ok. At least then I’d like to think I’d know more. But for some reason I just can’t shake this.
Matt Daniels: Yeah. I get that. The unknown is more troubling than the known. If another attack happens then maybe there’d be more clues.
Hurricane Hawk: Exactly. And I just don’t know what to—
(Hawks cell phone chirps suddenly. He pulls it out and looks at it before glancing at Matt)
Hurricane Hawk: Its Leo.
(Hawk takes a breath before answering the phone)
Hurricane Hawk: Leo. What’s up?………Really?…………..How soon can they get it to us?………………..that long? Damn…………..ok. Ok. We’ll figure it out. At least it’s moving forward. See you there.
(Hawk hangs up the phone and lets out a slow breath)
Matt Daniels: Good news?
Hurricane Hawk: The footage is approved. But it’s gonna take time to get it in. So for now I have to wait.
(Matt gives Hawk a concerned look before the camera fades)
(Commercial previewing Showdown exclusive event: Under Siege)
(Camera opens to a theater viewing of “Revolutionary Road” starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet. The room is dark but we can see Big Mike and Kassidy Heart sitting in the theater. Big Mike is sniffling through the sad movie and Kassidy looks at him annoyed)
Kassidy Heart: Why are you even crying?
Big Mike: I mean it’s a sad movie! Why aren’t you crying?
Movie: Als je nergens probeert, kun je niet falen…
Kassidy Heart: Because it’s entirely dubbed over in Dutch.
(Big Mike wipes his tears away and reaches down to pull a popcorn and soda into his lap. Kassidy leans away from him, disgusted. She looks up at the movie, one she actually enjoys in English, and tries to escape into it for a brief moment)
Big Mike: *leaning over and talking through a mouthful of popcorn* So uhh… not to tempt fate or nuthin… but I been meaning to ask you something.
Kassidy Heart: Must you?
Big Mike: Well I just mean… why do you hang around with that Ahren dude so much? I mean he just put you up as a prize in a bet like it was nothing. What’s the deal?
(Kassidy stares at him, somewhat shocked. The thought rolls around her mind for moment before her face scrunches up with anger)
Kassidy Heart: Never… NEVER… speak that way of Ahren Fournier to me again. There is a reason he is called the GOAT and you get no right to question him. I could’ve easily said no but I’m doing this as a favor to him. Just because the milk dud you call a head managed to grow a steroid filled body doesn’t mean it is capable of understanding anything.
Big Mike: Damn girl… aight… my bad…
(Big Mike leaned back and turned his attention back to the movie, now crying for a different reason. Kassidy took a deep breath. She pulled her phone out again to send a text. She then puts it away and actually focused on the movie herself. She knew it well and lost herself in remembering the scenes as they were in English, a moment of reprieve from the night)
(Camera opens to a shot of the titan tron)
(“You Only Live Once (Instrumental) by Suicide Silence hits as Damon Diesel appears on the ramp)
Aaron Fitzpatrick: THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SET FOR ONE FALL!!!!!!
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Aaron Fitzpatrick: INTRODUCING FIRST, FROM ORLANDO, FLORIDA, WEIGHING IN AT 215 POUNDS…. HE IS THE WRESTLING MACHINEEEEEE!!! DAMONNNNNN DIESEEEELLLL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Deadprez: This is a do or die situation for Damon Diesel, as he is number one contender for the New Breed title it would be foolish of him to not put an effort up against his opponent in this match tonight, Jack Haze
Pierre McGuire: I expect a lot out of both of these men tonight, Damon’s got a lot on his plate and Haze has got something to prove let’s hope for the best.
(“Revolution” by The Beatles plays as Jack Haze struts to the ramp with a smile)
Aaron Fitzpatrick: AND HIS OPPONENT, RESIDING IN SANTA MONICA, CALIFORNIA, WEIGHING IN AT 211 POUNDS… JACKKKK HAZEEEE!!!!!
Deadprez: I absolutely despise this man, this man is filled with joy and I just can’t take it. I see no chance in him winning NO CHANCE PIERRE
Pierre McGuire: Calm your balls Dead as said Jack Haze is filled with confidence as if he beats Damon Diesel maybe this’ll prove that he is worthy for the New Breed title
(Jack Haze steps into the ring as Damon Diesel is already walking up to Jack Haze)
Deadprez: This isn’t good, they’re already butting heads and the bell hasn’t even rung but the ref splits this up quickly so the match can get underway, jesus christ.
(DING DING DING!!!!!)
Pierre McGuire: Damon Diesel and Jack Haze are circling around the ring, who’s going to get the leverage going into this match, they lock up but Damon Diesel is slowly pushing Jack Haze to the corner, Jack Haze is not giving up tho but the ref is splitting them up Damon Diesel gives a light slap to the face and is looking Jack Haze straight in the eyes
Damon Diesel: FUCK YOU YOU PI-
Deadprez: JACK HAZE SHOVING THE REF OUT OF THE WAY AND ATTACKS DAMON DIESEL!!! THIS IS A DIFFERENT JACK HAZE TONIGHT HE WANTS TO PULL OUT THE WIN AND FAST JACK PUSHES DAMON INTO THE CORNER BUT DAMON SHOVES HAZE AWAY AND CATCHES A BREATHER. JACK HAZE RUNS TOWARDS DAMON AND ATTACKS HIM, SOMEONE GET THIS HIPPIE OFF DAMON!!!
Pierre McGuire: That’s not nice Dead. Damon is leaning on the ropes as JACK HAZE CLOTHESLINES HIM OVER THE TOP ROPE BUT DAMON IS STILL KEEPING HIS BALANCE ON THE APRON A PUNCH TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD, DAMON THROWS HIM OUT OF THE RING AS HAZE STUMBLES TO THE BARRICADE AS THE CROWD TRIES TO GIVE HIM SUPPORT.
Damon Diesel: THE FUCK ARE YOU PEOPLE DOING, SCREW OFF WILL YOU?!?!
Deadprez: Damon Diesel is now bringing Haze to his feet BUT HAZE GRABS A HOLD OF HIM AND THROWS DAMON RIGHT INTO THE BARRICADE DAMON CLUTCHING HIS BACK ON THE FLOOR AS JACK HAZE IS WASTING NO TIME GOING TO THE TOP ROPE AS HE JUMPS OFF THE TOP BUT DAMON ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY AS NOW JACK HAZE HAS FALLEN TO THE FLOOR CLUTCHING HIS LEFT LEG AS IT SEEMS TO HAVE TAKEN AN IMPACT
Pierre McGuire: Damon Diesel takes opportunity of it as now he’s stomping away at the leg, he drags Jack Haze into the ring by the hurt leg adding insult to injury, he’- wait what, Damon Diesel is trying to trap Jack Haze’s leg with the ropes, he looks around the arena with a smirk as he stands on the apron Jack Haze is now stumbling to untie it but he’s stuck practically in a tree of woe on the outside. OH!!! DAMON DIESEL IS NOT VICIOUSLY STOMPING AWAY AT THE LEG AS JACK HAZE IS SCREAMING IN PAIN- But Diesel stops, he’s looking down at Haze but JACK GRABS DIESEL BY THE LEGS BEFORE HE COULD CONSIDER ANYTHING AND PULLS HIM OFF THE APRON, Haze pulls himself free as he stumbles to the ground clutching his leg yet again he musters the strength to approach Damon as he uses the barricade to get to his feet he pulls Diesel up OH Damon gives him a slap to the face as that gives Diesel time to set up FOR NO BREATHE! COQUINA CLUTCH TO THE OUTSIDE
Deadprez: The ref begins the count as No Breathe is senched in but it won’t count if Haze taps but what is Haze doing??? As he rolls to his left OH DAMON’S ANKLE IS BEING CRUSHED BY HAZE AS HAZE MOVES HIS LEG IN FRONT OF DIESEL’S DAMON PUSHES HIM AWAY QUICKLY AS HE DRAGS HIMSELF TO THE RING APRON THE REF IS SLOWLY BUT SURELY CONTINUING THE COUNT BUT JACK HAZE WITH DOUBLE KNEES TO THE HEAD OF DAMON DIESEL AS HE SLIDES INTO THE RING AND RALLIES THE CROWD UP HAZE HAS THE MOMENTUM
Pierre McGuire: Damon slides into the ring following Haze but Haze kicks him in the kneecap causing him to lean on the second rope JACK HAZE RUNS TOWARDS THE ROPES, DROPKICK! HAZE KIPS UP AND IS LOOKING FOR SOMETHING HAS DAMON DIESEL STUMBLES TO HIS FEET JACK TURNS- DIESEL SHOVED HIM AWAY AVOIDING WHAT SEEMS TO BE A PINEAPPLE PUNCH FROM JACK HAZE- DROPKICK TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD AS HAZE FALLS TO THE GROUND Damon now focusing on the leg as he grabs it and DROPS his elbow onto Haze’s possibly injured left leg from earlier in the match, Diesel stays where he is and SENCHES THE KNEE DEEPER INTO HAZE’S LEG BUT HAZE ELBOWS HIM IN THE BACK OF THE HEAD CAUSING HIM TO LOOSEN THE GRIP JACK GRABS DAMON BY THE HAIR AND SLAMS HIM TO THE GROUND AS HAZE PULLS AWAY FROM DIESEL- Haze sitting for a sec staring into the back of Damon Diesel’s head he gets up slowly and walks to the top rope kicking Diesel in the head keeping him down he’s up on the to-
Deadprez: DAMON DIESEL HAS GRABBED A HOLD OF JACK HAZE’S LEG, HAZE TRIED TO SHAKE HIM OFF BUT DIESEL HAS A GRIP OF STEEL HE PULLS HIM OFF THE TOP ROPE AS THEY BOTH FALL SIMULTANEOUSLY- BUT DAMON GETS UP AND BRINGS HAZE ALONG WITH HIM, THIS MIGHT BE THE LAST STRETCH TO THE WIN DAMON PLOTS JACK DOWN ON HIS KNEES AND RUNS TOWARDS THE ROPES AND BACK- BANG BANG CONNECTS THE V-TRIGGER AS DAMON GOES FOR THE PIN
Pierre McGuire: HAZE KICKS OUT AS HE’S NOT GIVEN IN DAMON IS NOW ARGUING WITH THE REF
Damon Diesel: YOUR ASS COUNTING WAY TOO SLOW, DO YOUR JOB RIGHT
Deadprez: Diesel is infuriated as what he thought would be the win was ruined but HAZE WITH A ROLLUP NO A EUROPEAN UPPERCUT TO DIESEL, HAZE IS NOT WASTING TIME AS DRAGS DAMON TO HIS FEET- DIESEL KICKS HAZE IN THE GUT BUT HE RETALIATES WITH A HEADBUTT! STILL STANDING DAMON DIESEL IS STILL DAZED AS HAZE JUMPS MUSHROOM STOMP, THE LEAPING DOUBLE FOOT STOMP HITS DAMON HARD! WHAT ATHLETICISM DISPLAYED BY HAZE AS HE’S ALREADY FALLEN INTO THE PIN!
Pierre McGuire: DIESEL KICKS OUT BUT HAZE ISN’T GOING TO ARGUE AS HE JUMPS TO HIS FEET IN A SHOCK HE’S PROBABLY THINKING WHAT TO DO NEXT HE’S PULLED EVERY POSSIBLE TRICK OUT OF THE BOOK- But if I know Jack Haze well enough I know he has much more to incorporate into this match as he know is walking around kicking Diese- DAMON GRABS THE LEGS- What’s with people grabbing everyone’s legs in this match? But Haze kicks him off and stomps his foot on Diesel’s hand ouch. Haze has gotten way too cocky in this matchup but Damon LUNGES AND PUSHES HIM TOWARDS THE ROPES AS HE GETS UP HAZE RUNS TOWARDS HIM BUT DIESEL LIFTS HIM UP INTO A POWERBOMB POSITION HE’S DEAD SET ON THE CORNER AS HE CONNECTS WITH THE BUCKLE BOMB BUT HE RUNS TOWARDS HAZE AND A… SHOTGUN DROPKICK AS HAZE INSTANTLY DROP DOWN AND ROLLS OUT OF THE RING Damon is eccentric as he quickly rolls out of the ring and grabs him by the hair Haze shoved him away tho as Damon runs towards Jack Haze HE THROWS DAMON DIESEL RIGHT INTO THE STEEL STEPS AND HAZE GOES TO THE TOP ROPE- He pats his left leg and JUMPS AGAIN DOUBLE FOOT STOMP FROM THE TOP ROPE TO THE OUTSIDE! DAMON DIESEL IS YELLING IN PAIN AS HAZE ROLLS INTO THE RING AND USES THE ROPES FOR LEVERAGE AS HE CATCHES HIS BREATH.
Deadprez: This match doesn’t seem to be coming to a stop anytime soon as although both men have put out all their energy none of them seem to give up. Damon Diesel has gotten to the ring and sped his way to Haze as he shoves him and trash talks him Haze pushes back, but DIESEL RUNS TOWARDS HAZE AND LIFTS HIM UP FOR A GERMAN SUPLEX BUT HAZE PUNCHES HIM IN THE FACE HAZE LANDS, KICK TO THE GUT AND SNAP DDT. Diesel is now crawling to the ropes ad he grabs the bottom rope Haze not waiting grabs him by the shoulder and pulls him up BUT A ELBOW TO HAZE BY DIESEL AND A SLAP SQUARE ON THE CHEST- Jack is staring straight at Damon brushing off the slap AND A SCOOP SLAM BY HAZE EACH MAN GOING BACK AND FORTH GIVING EACH OTHER THEIR BEST SHOTS as Haze is looking a little worse for wear here he hasn’t seemed to catch his breath at all throughout this matchup who knows how much more he can take at this point but now Damon Diesel has crawled over to Jack Haze and tried to use him as leverage but Haze simply shoves him away, they’re suppose to be opponents not friends in this match up but now Haze is looking to finish it! Haze pulls Diesel up and—
(“Don’t Stop” by Inner Party System huts as Noah Reigner runs down the ramp with Evelyn Ridley in tow)
Pierre Mcguire: WHAT THE HELL? NOAH REIGNER?!? What is this another Voltage Invasion on Showd— DAMON ROLLS UP HAZE FROM BEHIND!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(Damon slides out of the ring with his hands up and runs off back up the ramp as Noah Reigner enters the ring and Evelyn Ridley grabs the microphone away from Aaron Fitzpatrick)
Deadprez: Jack Haze looks confused to see his old tag partner and he stands to—KILLSHOT!!! THE SICK KICK JUST LAID OUT JACK HAZE!!!! NOAH IS SEETHING AS HE STANDS OVER HAZE’S UNCONSCIOUS BODY!!
(Evelyn hands the microphone through the ropes to Noah)
Noah Reigner: Real… real clever there Jack. You got close to my operation. You took my trust that isn’t freely given. And you stabbed me in the back. “Shouldn’t have let me get too close”? Huh? You almost had me thinking it was Devan Dubian for a moment then I realized the truth. Yeah I figured you out you sad sack of shit. And I’m here to take back what’s mine
(Noah leans down over Jack who is barely awake and grabs him by the throat in the mat)
Noah Reigner: WHERE. IS. MY. FUCKING. BRIEFCASE?!?!?
(Noah bashes Jack back into the mat a few times before shoving the microphone into his mouth)
Jack Haze: *choking* I— *cough* don’t—
Noah Reigner: DO NOT TELL ME YOU DONT KNOW YOU LYING STONER CUNT! YOUVE TALKED ABOUT TITLE SHOTS ALL THE DAMN TIME AND YOU THOUGHT YOU COULD STEAL WHAT I EARNED AND TAKE THE EASY WAY! WHERE IS IT?!?
(Noah bashes Jack into the mat a few more times as Evelyn Ridley urges him on)
Noah Reigner: WHERE! IS! MY! BRIEFCASE?!?!?!?
(The crowd suddenly erupts and Noah notices. He looks up to the ramp and then stands. He turns around)
Pierre Mcguire: OHMYGAWD!!! SOSA HENDERSON! AND HE JUST SMASHED NOAH REIGNER IN THE FACE WITH THE CASH IN THE VAULT BRIEFCASE!!! NOAH IS DOWN! HE LOOKS COMPLETELY GLAZED OVER!! EVELYN RIDLEY IN THE RING NOW AND GOING FOR SOSA BUT SOSA BASHES HER RIGHT IN THE NOSE WITH THE BRIEFCASE HIMSELF!!!! SOSA STOMPING DIRECTLY ON HER FACE NOW! EVELYN IS BUSTED WIDE OPEN!!

DOUBLE CURB STOMP DENTS THE BRIEFCASE WITH NOAHS FACE!!!
(SOSA walks over and grabs the microphone)
SOSA Henderson: That’s right Noah. You shouldn’t have let me get so close, dumbass. God, why do folk like you gotta take things to be so deep. You saw me backstage at Road to Redemption. I was there finalizing my shit for my contract and you were just there. Actin all full of yourself like you were the shit. You wasn’t even paying attention! Easiest thing I ever took, I swear. The big bad Noah Reigner. The man everyone was supposed to look out for, couldn’t even heed his own advice.
(Noah is barely moving but tries to get a grip on the briefcase handle. But SOSA kicks the briefcase just out of reach)
SOSA Henderson: You may have won this case back before I got here. But you ain’t shit to me. I’m here now. I’m taking what I want for my damn self. I wanted your world title shot. So I took it. And your arrogant ass couldn’t do a thing about it.
(Matt Daniels and Hurricane Hawk run out into the stage and run down the ramp)
Deadprez: HERE COMES HELP BUT SOSA JUST GRABBED THE CASE AGAIN! HE GRINS AT THEM BOTH AND NOW HE TAKES OFF RUNNING THROUGH THE CROWD WITH THE CASH IN THE VAULT BRIEFCASE!
(SOSA sprints up the steps of the crowd and runs out through a fan entrance just as Hawk makes it to the barricade and Matt is checking on Noah and Jack Haze in the ring.)
Pierre Mcguire: Man I cant get ahold of anyone. I gotta go see what’s going on.
(Pierre snags a microphone from the side and walks over to Hawk who is seething)
Pierre Mcguire: Hey, Hawk. I know this may not be the best time but I have to ask, what’s going on with all these run ins between Showdown and Voltage? How did a guy like SOSA Henderson get his hands on the—
Hurricane Hawk: *angrily* Do you really wanna do this right now?
Pierre Mcguire: Well I mean I have to act as a journalist when no one else—
Hurricane Hawk: You’re fired.
Pierre Mcguire: Wha— what?
Hurricane Hawk: Someone get Eve out here. She can fill in. And get him outta the building. I’m not dealing with his bullshit too.
(Hawk snatches the microphone from Pierre who is dumbfounded as arena security makes its way down the ramp to remove him)
Hurricane Hawk: Fantastic. NOW you guys wanna show the fuck up.
(Security escorts Pierre up the ramp and out of the arena as Hurricane Hawk slides in the ring to check on Jack, Noah, and Evelyn)
(Commercial recapping Friday Night Dynasty)
(The camera cuts to Ahren Fournier entering the door to his locker room. He sits on a bench against the wall and leans backwards, shutting his eyes momentarily. He gets about half a second of rest until the camera picks up the sound of a quick “BAAA” coming from the inside of Ahren’s gym bag. He perks up and reaches for his bag, unzips, and begins digging for his phone, where he sees several messages from Kassidy Heart:)
Kassigoat 7:35 PM: Omg. Omg OMG Ahren!!!
Kassigoat: 7:36 PM: Ahren I am going to die. Call me and lie and pretend there’s an emergency or something
Kassigoat: 7:43 PM: Ok I’m in the bathroom but I can’t stay in here all night or he’ll get suspicious for sure
Kassigoat 7:45 PM: Dammit, Ahren, call me, please!!!!!
Kassigoat 8:03 PM: Tell Sienna that I love her
Kassigoat: 8:27 PM: Why aren’t you answering me?????
(Ahren shakes his head and sighs, typing out his response to Kass:)
Starboi 8:28 PM: You’re a big girl. You can handle yourself.
(After pressing send, Ahren is startled by a knock at the door. He tucks his phone away.)
Ahren Fournier: Come in.
(He takes a seat back down on his bench as the door opens. Chris Elite enters the frame of the shot. The crowd in the arena is heard cheering for Chris as he comes face to face with Ahren.)
Chris Elite: Well?
Ahren Fournier: Well…
Chris Elite: Gimmie an update.
Ahren Fournier: (He chuckles) Well, I can’t say how Big Mike might be feeling, but Kassidy is having the time of her life. She’s been texting me about how much fun she’s having all night. From the way it sounds, I think they’re really hitting it off. Might even be a second date.
Chris Elite: Man, cut the bull. Nah, that’s not what I’m talkin’ about. I want an update on your plans to try and fuck with me next. C’mon, lemme hear it. You already tried to come for my Gawd Contract, done went and picked the stip for our match. What’s next? C’mon, I’m waiting for it.
Ahren Fournier: Gee, Chris, what’s gotten into you lately? You’ve been complacent for so long, I thought you’d never grow tired of living in mediocrity. You’re stale, Chris. It’s time to move on. You had your time in the spotlight already, it’s done. Finito. Give it a rest. Get over the fact that you had one World Heavyweight Championship reign and lost. Even got passed over for WHC of the year. Nobody gives a damn about you. You’re ancient history. EAW is living in a new era now, the era of the GOAT. And in this era, in my era, the EAW Universe will finally stop suffering at the hands of washed up, decrepit old anything-but-GOAT failures. I’m the greatest EAW has to offer. I mean, look at me, I’m young, I’m handsome, need I say more? I’m the champion that the EAW Universe finally deserves. I can do absolutely no wrong. It’s you with the problem, nobody’s trying to screw you over. The only one fucking with Chris Elite is Chris Elite.
Chris Elite: Are you finished? Damn, son. Get your facts straight before you start talkin’ all that shit. You think the EAW Universe gives a damn about you? You think you everybody’s favorite? Then tell me why the top draw of 2018 was me and not you. Bozo. I been carrying this entire company on my back for years and that’s a fact. Just wait until I catch you slippin’, it ain’t gonna be the same Chris Elite you knew from back in the day. Yeah, 2018 might not have been my year, but that’s all good, B. It’s 2019, and I’m coming for everything. It’s foot on neck season. I don’t give a fuck what you or that lip-filler bitch or anyone else got to say about it, I’m the main event, the headliner, the whole goddamn show. And before you know it, I’m gonna have the hard proof to show it once I snatch that belt from you.
Ahren Fournier: (He chuckles) You don’t even deserve to hold this belt, boy. If you think you’re going to get anywhere near taking this Championship away from me, you’re deluded. GOATness like this isn’t just granted to anyone. You might as well just pack your bag and go. You don’t deliver. All of the faith EAW once had in you is now lost.
Chris Elite: Maaaan, I know you don’t believe a word of that shit. Why do you keep making me have to prove your dumbass wrong? You doubted me once before, bozo, don’t make the same mistake twice. I’ma make a fuckin’ fool out of you come King of Elite, I don’t give a damn ‘bout the match stipulation either. We all knew no matter the circumstances, you just gonna bring Kassidy Fart out there to handle crowd control and interfere over and over again the way she stay doing. When last you pulled off a clean victory, Ahren? Without any help, you phony son of a bitch?
(Ahren shoves Chris backwards with causes Chris to respond with a shove of his own, the back and forth between them developing into a full on brawl in the locker room. They throw some hard punches back and forth, Ahren falling backwards and crashing into a table as Chris Elite continues his assault with some hard hits to Ahren’s midsection. Ahren fights back with a low blow to Chris, who backs off for a moment. Ahren grabs hold of Chris’s shoulders and shoves him head first into the lockers lining the rear wall of the room. Ahren, still holding onto Chris, then rips open one of the doors to the lockers and places Chris’s head inside, crushing his head with the metal door. Chris slowly slides down and collapses onto the floor.)
Ahren Fournier: In case you forgot: Falls. Count. Anywhere.
(Ahren places his boot firmly onto Chris’s chest. He claps his hands–one, two, three–and pushes off of Chris’s chest before exiting the locker room.)
(Commercial for Enterprise Rent-A-Car: Never use us. We suck)
(Shot opens to once again show the outside of the Rocco Forte Hotel Amigo as the black town car pulls up to the front. The driver walks around back and opens the door. Big Mike steps out and opens the door again for Kassidy Heart as she climbs out and immediately walks towards the hotel with a quick pace, her heels clicking on the concrete as she goes. Big Mike runs and catches up)
Big Mike: Whoa! Hey! Hey! Come on! Don’t be like that!
(He runs around in front of Kassidy, stopping her progress)
Kassidy Heart: I’m back at my hotel. Date is over. My obligation is fulfilled.
Big Mike: Damn girl. All night you been like this. Look. I get it. I ain’t like the kind of guys you normally be out with. But I’m trying. And I like you, Kassidy. I see no flaws in you whatsoever. You’re an amazing girl and I just wanted to enjoy a little time with you.
Kassidy Heart: So me being here against my will was how you thought you’d get there?
Big Mike: I—I really like you. Like I feel things when I see you. When you leave I get sad. When I see you I feel joy. I just wanted to have real memories of that.
(Kassidy’s expression softens. She thinks through the night)
Kassidy Heart: Yeah. Despite the personality clash… I guess you have been pretty sweet tonight overall. You know what. I’ll give you one memory to keep. Close your eyes. We’ll end the night on a kiss.
(Big Mikes eyes go round as quarters as he is shocked by Kassidy’s words. He leans in and closes his eyes with his lips puckered)
Kassidy Heart: Part your lips a little. You’ve earned a real kiss.
Big Mike: You’re amazing.
(Big Mike opens his puckered lips just a little. Kassidy also leans in)
Kassidy Heart: Now then.
(Kassidy leans in, getting nearly close enough to kiss him, and then sprays pepper spray directly into his mouth.)
Big Mike: GAAAAAHAHHH!!!
(Big Mike crops to the ground choking and gagging as Kassidy walks away with a smile on her face)
Kassidy Heart: There’s a memory for you! Come near me like that again and I will fucking kill you!
(Big Mike struggles on the ground while clutching his throat as Kassidy enters the hotel with a grin on her face)

(Camera opens on the commentary desk with Deadprez and Eve sitting together as Eve is having her headset resized to fit)
Deadprez: Well as we all witnessed, my long time partner Pierre McGuire is no longer employed by EAW. While I have certain feelings about that, I am pleased to be joined here by our backstage interviewer and a former Vixen’s Champion in her own right, Eve.
Eve: *making final adjustment to headset* Thank you Deadprez. I’m glad to be here, though it’s under difficult circumstances. But we won’t let that detract from the action we have in store for all of our viewers at home. I hope you’re all ready because it’s time for tonight’s main event!
(Camera switches to Aaron Fitzpatrick in the ring)
Aaron Fitzpatrick: The following contest is a TABLES, LADDERS, AND CHAIRS MATCH…AND IT’S FOR ELITE ANSWERS WRESTLING INTERWIRE CHAMPIONSHIP!!!…
(‘In The City’ by Kevin Rudolf begins to play as the boo birds were ready to begin with, and after a few seconds of the Lights dimming just for the intro. We soon get the vocals kicking in and the lights abruptly turning on and start flashing as Jake Smith enters the arena, with a cocky look he walks down the ramp slapping hands unemotionally, before he enters the ring he takes a quick but thoughtful review of his hair he then enters the music stops quickly as Smith sits down in the middle of the ring slowly taking off his leather jacket he had on waiting for his opponent
Aaron Fitzpatrick: Introducing first….He hails from Venice, California….He weighs in at TWO HUNDRED AND THREE POUNDS….JAAAKKKKKEEEEEEE SMIIIITTTTHHHHH!!!!
Deadprez: This right here is a guy I put a lot of stock in! Jake Smith is a natural athlete, a hungry competitor, and the kind of guy who can one day be the face of the company as he continues to work hard and grow. Don’t be shocked if my boy right here walks with his first taste of EAW gold tonight.
(‘Welcome Home’ by Coheed and Cambria interrupts ‘In The City’ as Jax Walker slowly out on the stage, looking out over the crowd. After taking the crowd response in he makes his way down the ramp to the ring, ignoring the audience on his way. In the ring he climbs the turnbuckle and surveys the crowd before removing his mask and dropping to the mat. .)
Aaron Fitzpatrick: And introducing his opponent….He hails from Berea, Kentucky….He weighs in at TWO HUNDRED AND SIXTY FIVE POUNDS….HE’S THE DOG OF WAR….JAAXXXXX WAAALLLLLKKKKKEEERRRR!!!
Eve: A man who’s known combat for his entire adult life. Jax is a powerhouse but unlike many similar to him, he knows how to use his body as a weapon as well as how to pick an opponent apart. He’s my pick for a real threat here tonight.
(‘Native Blood’ by Silent Planet now begins to play as “The Fallen’ Solomon makes his way out and begins trash talking some as he makes his way toward the entrance ramp and then starts toward the ring barely acknowledging the presence of anyone as does except for the occasional glare.)
Aaron Fitzpatrick: And their opponent….He hails from Jerusalem, Israel…He weighs in at TWO HUNDRED AND FIFTY THREE POUNDS….HE’S THE FALLEN…..SOLLLLLOOMMMMOONNN!!!
Deadprez: I just don’t get this guy. I mean he earned his spot in the match I guess but you know he’s got real issues with all his dystopia stuff.
Eve: And did you hear his statements this week? I’m an interviewer so I had to have it in my ears all week. It just didn’t end.
(“Pray For Em” by Meek Mill gets fans out of their seats as the Interwire Champion Malcolm Jones makes his way out to a very mixed reaction, the kind of attention that champions receive for being the World beaters that they are. Malcolm has the Interwire Championship strapped around his waist.)
Aaron Fitzpatrick: And their opponent….He hails from Harlem, New York….He weighs in at TWO HUNDRED AND THIRTY POUNDS….”THE ROSE THAT GREW FROM THE CONCRETE JUNGLE” ….THE REIGNING AND DEFENDING INTERWIRE CHAMPION….MALCOOOLLLLLMMMMM JOOOONNNNEEESSSS!!!!
Eve: And here’s the champion! Malcolm Jones has put everyone on notice as he won the Interwire Championship, then beat Impact, then earned his way into the King of Elite finals. And that’s all after having main evented his first ever Pain for Pride.
Deadprez: Gotta say, he’s not gonna be easy to unseat.
(Malcolm climbs into the ring and takes the title and holds it high in the air. He looks at the belt, almost studying it for just a moment. He turns back and places it in the referees hands who shows it around before moving to the center of the ring as a cable with a mounted steel triangle lowers from the ceiling. The referee matches the title around the bar of the triangle and the title is raised up into the air.)
Deadprez: Looks like we’re ready to go!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Eve: MALCOLM JONES WASTING NO TIME! HE JUST BOLTED OVER AND HIT SOLOMON WITH A ROLLING ELBOW! HE FOLLOWS IT UP WITH A DROPKICK THAT IMMEDIATELY SENDS SOLOMON OVER THE TOP ROPE!! JAKE SMITH TRIES TO REACT AS GOES FOR THE INTERWIRE CHAMPION BUT MALCOLM JONES WAS READY FOR IT!! C-NOTE!!! THAT SPEAR JUST KNOCKED THE WIND OUT OF JAKE SMITH’S SAILS MOMENTARILY I’D HAVE TO THINK!!! JAX WALKER GOES OUTSIDE AFTER SOLOMON!! JAX GRABS UP SOLOMON AND SLAMS HIS HEAD AND IT GOES BOUNCING OFF THE BARRICADE!! JAX NOT DONE AS HE TAKES SOLOMON OVER TO WHERE THE RING POST IS AND LOOKS TO REPEAT THE SAME PROCESS!! NO!! IT’S BLOCKED BY SOLOMON AND THIS TAKES JAX WALKER BY SURPRISE!! A HARD KNEE TO THE MIDSECTION NOW BY SOLOMON AND IT’S SOLOMON THAT SENDS THE HEAD OF JAX WALKER BOUNCING OFF THE RING POST INSTEAD!!
Deadprez: IN THE RING IT’S THE CHAMPION MALCOLM JONES STILL ASSUMING CONTROL OF THE SITUATION WITH JAKE SMITH WITH ARM DRAG TAKE OVER THAT SENDS DRAKE FALLING HARD TO THE CANVAS!! MALCOLM JONES NOW STEPS THROUGH THE ROPES TO THE OUTSIDE! MALCOLM JONES REACHING UNDER THE RING FOR SOMETHING HERE!! WITH A MATCH AS HARDCORE AS THIS HE COULD BE REACHING FOR ANYTHING AT THIS POINT!! JAKE SMITH ROLLS OUT AND CONTINUES TO TRY AND FIND AN ADVANTAGE AGAINST THE CHAMPION! OH MY GOD! JONES FOUND A WEAPON! A FRIEND PERHAPS AS HE JABS THAT STEEL CHAIR RIGHT INTO THE MIDSECTION OF JAKE SMITH! AND NOW JAKE SMITH GOES DOWN ON IMPACT AS MALCOLM JUST CHUCKED THAT CHAIR RIGHT AT THE HEAD OF JAKE SMITH!! ON THE OTHER SIDE JAX WALKER IS TAKEN DOWN BY A SPINNING HEEL KICK BY SOLOMON!! THIS IS WHAT YOU CALL PURE CHAOS EVE! THE QUESTION ISN’T DO THESE FOUR MEN ACCEPT ALL THIS CHAOS BUT RATHER DOES CHAOS ITSELF ACCEPT THEM!!???
Eve: You drive a good point there, DP! But i think we better tone it down before we lose our voices well before all this chaos is over and done with! Malcolm Jones just tossed that chair he used on Jake Smith a moment ago into the ring! And Jake Smith is already busted open! You said it DP the impact of that steel chair really did a number on Jake! He is out on a knee right now unable to stand! On the other side Solomon is up on the apron now looking to try something! Solomon leaps of and grabs Jax Walker around neck and delivers a modified snap DDT!! And Jax Walker is out of it momentarily after getting up close and acquainted with the padding on the floor! Solomon slides into the ring while MJ is now sliding out from under the ring a table! He’s not done however as he’s looking for something else! BUT WHAT!!?? Here comes Solomon sliding under the ropes on the other side to meet MJ! Now Solomon pummeling away on the back of MJ whose taking every blow as he tries to rise back up! MJ starts trading blows back and forth with Solomon!
Deadprez: Jax Walker on one knee at the other side of the ring trying to recover from the early punishment he received at the hands of Solomon! Back at ringside to our right once more is Solomon and MJ still trying to find the advantage on the other! Solomon looks to whip MJ but MJ reverses and whips Solomon instead right toward Jake Smith! Smith rises up just in time to backdrop Solomon who goes flying overhead right over the barricade and into the sea of humanity where he lands on nothing but concrete!! Solomon yells out in absolute ****ing agony, pardon my language folks! A KICK TO THE GUT OF MJ DELIVERED BY JAKE SMITH FOLLOWED BY A CLOTHESLINE THAT FINALLY KNOCKS THE CHAMPION OFF HIS FEET FOR THE FIRST TIME! And Jake Smith taunting the downed MJ! HERE COMES JAX WALKER BACK INTO THE PICTURE WITH RUNNING FOREARM, FISTS, AND KNEES THAT’S REALLY KNOCKING JAKE SMITH FOR A LOOP!! STAGGERING BACK A BIT ON TO ONE KNEE JAKE SMITH RECOVERS AND IS NOW ON BOTH FEET AS JAX WALKER GRABS JAKE BY THE ARM AND WHIPS HIM HARD INTO THE SAME SPOT! AND A CLOTHESLINE OVER THE BARRICADE WHERE SOLOMON IS! JAX WALKER GOES TO TURN AROUND ONLY TO BE TAKEN BY SURPRISE AS SOLOMON FROM BEHIND BEGINS WRAPPING AN EQUIPMENT CORD AROUND THE NECK OF JAX! JAX WALKER IS STRUGGLING TO GET THE EQUIPMENT CORD OFF FROM AROUND HIS NECK!! HE’S SERIOUSLY STRUGGLING TO BREATHE RIGHT NOW!!
Eve: MJ is starting to recover off in the distance and begins setting up that table from earlier that he grabbed out from under the ring! Over near the barricade Jake Smith attacks with a clubbing blow to the back of the head of Solomon! Solomon lets go of the equipment cord which allows Jax Walker to drop down to his knees and try to practice his breathing again after nearly having the life choked out of him! Solomon and Jake Smith continue to slug it out in the crowd! MJ…LOOK AT THIS! HE’S SLIPPING ONTO HIS KNUCKLES SOME BRASS KNUCKS!! WHAT A GENIUS! IN A NO DQ IT’S PERFECTLY LEGAL!! MJ GOES STRAIGHT FOR JAX WALKER WITH BAD INTENTIONS! MJ walks on clear on up to Jax Walker who is still recovering! MJ tries to take a swing at the face of Jax but Jax ducks the attempt and is now throwing vicious rights at MJ! THAT LAST ONE JUST KNOCKED MJ OUT ON HIS BACK!! Jax turning around now and heads toward the ring again! This time he begins pulling up the apron and reaching under! He sees the ladder from earlier that MJ was attempting to pull out! This time the ladder makes it first appearance as Jax Walker is now pulling it out! MJ starts to recover and get back to his feet…BUT IT’S TOO LATE!! JAX USES THAT LADDER AS A BATTERING RAM AND MJ TAKES A HUGE BLOW TO THE CHEST WITH THE MOMENTUM BEHIND THAT SHOT KNOCKING MJ CLEAR ON HIS ASS AS HE HE IS NOW HOLDING HIS CHEST AREA IN A GREAT DEAL OF PAIN!!
Deadprez: Rules….who needs em!!?? These men just wanna kill each other just to prove they’re the top of the food chain in the Interwire division! Solomon body presses and tosses Jake Smith back over the barricade! Jake has lost some blood here in the early going! You gotta be wondering if he’ll be able to bounce back! Solomon makes his way back to ringside! Jax Walker has already placed that ladder in the ring and is now taking the initiative to set it up! Solomon notices this of course and slides on under the bottom rope to re-enter the ring! Jax Walker is setting up the lad-nope! Solomon being ever the opportunist here in the early going coming after Jax from behind! The ladder falls into the corner! Solomon whips Jax Walker into the ropes and a swinging neckbreaker coming back by Jax Walker that takes Solomon off his feet! MJ slips in to the ring and grabs Jax Walker who was back to his feet and throws him into that ladder that ws set up in the corner! JAX WALKER HOLDING HIS BACK THERE AFTER THAT….AND. UP.TOWN. RIDE. MALCOLM JONES ON A ROLL AS HE PLANTS JAX WALKER INTO THE CANVAS!!! HERE COMES SOLOMON FROM BEHIND AGAIN! BUT MALCOLM JONES WAS READY AS HE BACK DROPS SOLOMON RIGHT INTO THE LADDER! JAKE SMITH IS FINALLY BACK JUST OUTSIDE STANDING ON THE RING APRON! BUT MALCOLM JONES IS NO WASTE IN MOTION AS HE GRABS UP THE STEEL CHAIR HE THREW IN EARLIER AND RUNS AT JAKE AND DROPKICKS THE CHAIR RIGHT INTO THE FACE OF JAKE SMITH WHICH SENDS JAKE FALLING RIGHT THROUH AND BREAKING THE TABLE BELOW! JAKE SMITH COMPLETELY OUT OF IT! WOW! WHAT A SEQUENCE OF DOMINANCE BY THE INTERWIRE CHAMPION MALCOLM JONES!
Eve: Indeed it has been in the last few minutes! Malcolm Jones has clearly established that he’s the man to beat in this match as he now sets up the ladder in the center of the ring! There it is folks! The Interwire Championship hangs high above the ring! Hanging in the balance as Malcolm begins to climb, but who will stop him if anyone!!?? Jax Walker is the first one who is stirring as Malcolm continues to climb! Jax Walker with support of that ladder is pulling himself up! Now Jax Walker with everything he has pulling himself up! Now Solomon is stirring but still not quite to his feet yet! MALCOLM JONES JUST TOUCHED THE INTERWIRE CHAMPIONSHIP! HE CLIMBS A STEP HIGHER AS THE INTERWIRE CHAMPIONSHIP SWINGS BACK AND FORTH NOW! JAX WALKER JUST TOOK A VICIOUS SHOT TO THE HEAD WITH THOSE BRASS KNUCKLES THAT MALCOLM JONES IS STILL WEARING FROM EALIER! MALCOLM JONES AGAIN GOES FOR THE TITLE BELT! HE’S GOT A HOLD ON IT! AND SHOT TO THE MIDSECTION OF MALCOLM FROM JAX WALKER! AND ANOTHER! DESPERATION BY JAX WALKER TO STAY ALIVE IN THIS! AND NOW SOLOMON IS ON HIS FEET! SOLOMON OFF THE ROPES AND SENDS HIS OWN MOMENTUM INTO THE LADDER AND WITH THAT BIG 6’6″ FRAME IT’S ENOUGH TO SEND THE LADDER TEETERING OVER TO THE RIGHT AND DOWN GOES MALCOLM JONES AND JAX WALKER! OHHHHH NOO!!! MALCOLM JONES GOT CROTCHED ON THE TOP ROPE! JAX WALKER LANDED HARD ON THE OUTSIDE! HE MAY HAVE DID SOME SERIOUS DAMAGE TO HIS KNEE! HE JUST TRIED TO STAND UPON IMPACT BUT ITS HIS LEFT KNEE! IT SUPPORT HIS OWN WEIGHT AT THE MOMENT!
Deadprez: This Solomon, man, he’s been a real true opportunistic individual tonight! Just picking up the scraps wherever he can! He’s got the wounded Champion who’s still trying to recover! Snap suplex sending Malcolm Jones landing back first on that steel chair! Malcolm Jones really felt that one! Jake Smith standing up with support of the apron on the outside! Solomon right there to meet the bloodied Jake Smith! Now Jake Smith throwing some rights at Solomon trying to mount an offense here! These shots are enough to send Solomon staggering back a couple of steps! Jake Smith hops up on the top rope and leaps off grabbing Solomon around his head right into a twisting tornado DDT to Solomon! Jake Smith sees an opportunity now and he uses his agility and athletic ability to hop up to the top rope on the opposite side and a moonsault by Jake Smith right on to Solomon! Now Jax Walker slowly sliding into the ring and Jake Smith takes notice! Jake scowls at this as he was ready to grab for the ladder! Jake makes his way over and begins stomping away at the injured knew of Jax Walker! He didn’t even know Jax was injured initially but he sure does now! Jake Smith grabs Jax Walker up and places him in the corner and continues the attack on that injured knee of Jax!
Eve: It’s a very smart strategy! Solomon setting up that lone ladder once again! Malcolm Jones sliding out of the ring! Certainly going the wrong way if he’s looking to try to retain his title but maybe he has something in mind that we all don’t know about! Jake Smith turns to see Solomon climbing the ladder! It’s set up perfectly for whoever can climb up and take the Interwire Title belt and the glory! Jake Smith is seemingly recovered enough from the early disadvantage he had and is now poised as he begins to ascend the ladder from the side opposite of Solomon! Solomon places a hand at the top of the ladder and continues to inch himself a little higher! Solomon however sees Jake Smith and awaits him to meet at his level rather than reach for the belt! Jake is almost to Solomon! What is Malcolm doing!!??? He should be out to save his title with two of his three opponents practically within arm’s length of it! He’s pulling out a table here! And another one to follow! OH MY!!! Jake’s head was just slammed right into the top of the ladder! Headbutt by Solomon! Jake Smith barely hanging on at the top! This could be Solomon’s chance! If he gets rid of Jake Smith has a free climb to the title! Malcolm Jones has set up two fold out long tables and has stacked one on top of the other! He’s looking to get Solomon’s attention! He’s encouraging Solomon to send Jake Smith through the tables! Solomon just takes one look at Malcolm Jones and flips off the current Interwire Champion! WAIT A MINUTE! FROM BEHIND!! ITS JAX WALKER!! HE HAS SOLOMON! OH MY GOD!!! SOLOMON IS SENT FLYING OFF THE LADDER TO THE LEFT RIGHT THROUGH BOTH TABLES PLUMMETTING SOME TWENTY FEET AND HE HAS TO BE BROKEN IN HALF! MALCOLM JONES WAS PULLING OUT ANOTHER LADDER JUST BEFORE THIS! THIS ONE…WOW…THIS LADDER HAS TO BE TWENTY FEET! LOOK HOW HIGH IT SCALES AS HE SETS IT UP! THE CROWD IS INTO THIS CARNAGE!
Deadprez: Look out in the ring! Don’t forget about Jake Smith! Jax Walker certainly hasn’t as he climbs up to Jake’s level on the ladder bad knee and all! The Dog of War has surely been in one right from the start! Malcolm Jones is climbing that twenty foot ladder and he’s almost to the top! He’s nowhere near securing his title belt this way! Solomon still down in all that rubble of broken would and thorns! Blood wounds showing on his right arm that looks like it got plenty of that wood on the way down! YOU DON’T THINK!?? THIS IS INSANE! IF MALCOLM JONES IS DOING WHAT I THINK HE’S DOING THEN HE MIGHT AS WELL KISS HIS CHANCES OF RETAINING HIS TITLE BELT GOODBYE!!! MALCOLM JONES DON’T YOU DO THIS! SOMEONE COULD GET KILLED! OH MY GOD!!! MALCOLM JONES JUST LEAPED DOWNWARD!! FIVE STAR SWAG SPLASH LANDING RIGHT ON SOLOMON!! MJ GOT ALL OF THAT!!! AND HE’S REALLY FEELING THAT ONE AS HE ROLLS OFF KICKING WILDLY WHILE HOLDING HIS MIDSECTION!!! SOLOMON HAS BEEN K.O.d!!!
Eve: In the ring Jax Walker has somehow gotten control of the situation with Jake Smith! AND NOW JAX HAS JAKE TRAPPED IN HIS GRASP!! JAKE SMITH STRUGGLING TO FREE HIMSELF BUT JAX WITH CLUBBING BLOWS TO THE BACK TO WEAKEN HIS FOE AND IT’S EFFECTIVE! AND NOW JAX ASSUMES CONTROL OF THE SITUATION AGAIN! PERHAPS LOOKING FOR A SUPLEX!!! NO WAY!!! JAX WALKER HAS JAKE SMITH HIGH UP JUST HANGING IN THE AIR IN THE GRASP OF JAX!! WHAT’S HE GOING TO DO!! FUBAR!!! MODIFIED PILEDRIVE OFF NEAR TOP OF THE LADDER THAT PLANTED JAKE SMITH!! I MEAN BURIED HIM HEADFIRST INTO THE CANVAS!! JAX WALKER LOOKS UP!!! HE’S HURTING BUT HE’S TRYING TO RISE UP! HE CAN’T DO IT!! MALCOLM JONES IS NOW PULLING HIMSELF UP FROM THE FLOOR WITH SUPPORT OF THE RING APRON! JAX WALKER! HIS WEIGHT GIVES OUT ON THAT KNEE AGAIN! BUT HE’S STILL CLINGING TO THE ROPES!! MALCOLM JONES IS IN THE RING NOW!! HE’S CRAWLING TOWARD THE LADDER! HE’S PULLING HIMSELF UP TO A STANDING POSITION JUST SLUMPED ON THE LADDER! JAX WALKER IS CRAWLING TO THE OTHER SIDE OF THE LADDER AND NOW BEGINS PULLING HIMSELF UP TO AA STANDING POSITION AS MALCOLM NOW TAKES A COUPLE STEPS UP ON THE OPPOSITE SIDE!
Deadprez: IT’S A RACE TO THE TOP! NOW JAX HAS STARTED TO CLIMB THE LADDER! BOTH MEN CLIMBING UP! BOTH HAVE MET EACH OTHER AT THE TOP! BOTH START SLUGGING IT OUT BUT AT A SLOWER MOTION BECAUSE THEY ARE ABSOLUTELY SPENT AT THIS POINT IN THE MATCH!! BOTH CONTINUE TO SLUG IT OUT BACK AND FORTH! MJ! JAX! MJ! JAX! MJ! JAX! MJ! JAX! MJ! JAX! MJ! JAX! MJ! JAX! MJ! JAX! MJ! JAX! MAN!!! BOTH SIMPLY WILL NOT STOP UNTIL THE OTHER HAS FALLEN OFF!! WHO WILL IT BE THOUGH!! THE WEIGHT OF EACH MAN’S MOMENTUM MAKING THAT LADDER TEETER ONCE AGAIN!! IT ALMOST FELL THAT TIME! OH MY GOODNESS WHAT A SHOT BY MALCOLM!! BUT JAX COMES BACK AGAIN WITH A RIGHT OF HIS OWN!! OHHHH AND THERE IT GOES!! THE LADDER TEETERS COMPLETELY OVER AND BOTH MEN LAND AWKWARDLY AGAINST THE ROPES!! MALCOLM JONES BOUNCES BACK AND LANDS IN THE CENTER OF THE RING!! JAX WALKER!!!??? LOOK AT JAX!! HE’S LOCKED IN THE ROPES! HIS ARMS ARE LOCKED! AND MALCOLM JONES SEES THIS AND CRAWLS AS QUICK AS POSSIBLE TO WHERE JAX WALKER IS LOCKED IN THE ROPES! HE’S ALMOST OUT BUT NO!!! MALCOLM JONES ENSURES THOSE ROPES ARE TWISTED AND LOCKED WITH JAX IN THEM!! JAX THROWS WILD KICKS AT THE DIRECTION OF MALCOLM JONES BUT TO NO AVAIL AS THEY ARE NOWHERE CLOSE TO CONNECTING WITH MALCOLM!!
Eve: A grimace comes from the champion Malcolm Jones as he turns his attention back toward the Interwire Championship Belt still dangling up above! Jax Walker yells out in anger and frustration as he struggles to free himself from the ropes but it’s no use! Malcolm Jones sets the ladder back up finally and begins his ascent once more up the ladder! The crowd is electric, so loud! They can sense the end! MALCOLM JONES IS AT THE TOP! HE REACHES UP FOR THE TITLE BELT! JAX WALKER FINALLY ESCAPES AND MAKES ONE LAST DESPERATE DIVING ATTACK AT THE LADDER!! MALCOLM JONES UNHOOKS THE INTERWIRE CHAMPIONSHIP BELT!! HE’S GOT IT! HE’S GOT! MALCOLM JONES RETAINS!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“Pray For Em” by Meek Mill starts up again as the ladder eventually ends up falling upon Jax Walker throwing his momentum into it but Malcolm Jones was able to settle in and jump off before going down again with the ladder. He lands on his feet initially but falls back to a seated position and then lays there on his back clutching the title to his chest for a moment as Jax Walker crumbles to the mat in complete exhaustion.)
Aaron Fitzpatrick: The winner of this Tables, Ladder, and CHAIRS MATCH….AND STIIIIILLLLLLLLLL THE ELITE ANSWERS WRESTLING INTERWIRE CHAMPION!!!…….MALLLLCCCCCOOOOLLLLLMMMMM JOOOOONNNNNNEEEEEESSSSSSS!!!!
Deadprez: HE DID IT! MJ DID IT! HE PUT HIS BODY ON THE LINE AND HE RETAINED THE TITLE!
Eve: WHAT A MATCH! I’m so glad I got to call this one! What a wild night we’ve had here!
(Malcolm rises to his feet, stumbles a bit but makes it to the corner. The Camera pans to show Jake, Jax, and Solomon all still down from the battle they just went through. Malcolm climbs slowly up the turnbuckles and raises the Interwire Championship high in the air)
Eve: No doubts about it, Malcolm Jones didn’t just win a match, he won a war. Like him or not, its plain to see that the Interwire Championship is in good hands.
Deadprez: And now he moves on to the King of Elite finals as we have one stop left on our road to Johannesburg. Signing off for Eve, I am Deadprez, and we will see you next week on Saturday Night Showdown!
