(EAW intro plays.)
(SCREEN BAR — EARLIER TODAY.)
(Outside the Amway Center, two security guards are standing in front of the doors that lead inside the arena. There are a few other security guards that are looming around the area. By direct orders of Mr. DEDEDE, they are to make sure that this edition of Showdown runs as smoothly as possible. The security guards are on the defense and are prepared to attack if harm comes to any of them. The fuckery last week was almost enough to make sure that the Caribbean did not want to partner with Elite Answers Wrestling for another cruise ship show. After much persuading by the Chairman, he was able to maintain the deal for potential events in the future.)
(A few moments passed before former PURE Champion Mark Michaels makes his way towards inside the arena. Mark has a suitcase in his grasp as he’s rolling it, and he makes his way towards the security guards. He pays no attention to them before making his way inside the arena.)
Security #1: I’m sorry, Mr. Michaels, we can’t let you inside the arena.
(Mark Michaels is confused.)
Mark Michaels: Excuse me?
Security #2: I’m sorry. We can’t let you inside the arena. Jenny Punk requested that we not let you inside this arena.
Security #1: Jenny Punk said something about your actions. It was almost leaning towards “Amber Keys costing EAW $300 million” territory, but I assume that’s not good. :lupe:
Mark Michaels: I wouldn’t think that Jenny Punk would understand why I did what I did last week. I don’t expect any of you fools to see things from my perspective. What I did last week, it needed to get done. Without it, I would be forced to see myself down card. I would go back to irrelevancy. It’s something that a lot of people would want from me. I can’t give them what they wish to happen, gentlemen. They say that spending time in jail should change anyone’s perspective, but I see things a whole lot clearer. I am more than determined to evoke my rematch clause and challenge Jake Smith at Reasonable Doubt.
???: That’s if the security lets you in this arena.
(Mark Michaels looks up at General Manager Jenny Punk as she steps in front of the two security guards. The petite blonde is looking at Mark without an ounce of fear in her eyes. Almost like she is willing to stare him down for as long as she can to assert her dominance.)
Jenny Punk: As for your rematch, we don’t do the whole “rematch clause” on Showdown. I prefer for members of my roster to earn their championship opportunities.
Mark Michaels: Rumors on the street is that your pet projects have a future Unified Tag Team Championship Match in the bag? How in the hell have they earned anything around here? Is nepotism a thing on Showdown? Come on, Jenny. Are you becoming another corporate puppet for Ryan Adams?
Jenny Punk: I’m not here to talk about The ILLIONAIRES, Mark. I’m not going to confirm or deny any rumors regarding them. Chris and Ahren don’t need to prove anything to you. They could defeat you any day of the week. Hell, Chris did a few months back in Brooklyn, but that’s none of my business. The point is: I thought spending a night in the cruise jail would be enough to make you feel about your actions. I mean, it took a lot of persuading by me and Mr. DEDEDE to get some of the production staff not to press any charges against you. If they went along with pressing charges, this could have been a more significant issue, which brought more negative media attention to EAW. We’re trying to recover from the Egypt fiasco, and before that, there was the whole Bloodsport situation. The last thing we need to happen is for #CancelShowdown to become a thing. Now, do yourself a favor and get your ass off this area. Unlike the security from the cruise ship, these two won’t be afraid to fuck you up.
(Mark Michaels and Jenny Punk have a staredown for a moment. Everything is silent around them. Mark grins at Jenny.)
Mark Michaels: You know, Jenny. I think you’re right. We don’t need for #CancelShowdown to be a thing. Unlike those losers protesting over the cancellation of Voltage, I was going along with my threats. I took it the source. In the case of last week, it was in the production room. Next week, it could be the board room in New Jersey. The following, it would be to the Chairman of the Board. Jake Smith inspired me a bit; he went to the source of his issues last season with Hurricane Hawk. I figured that I should do the same thing. You want to know what you can do to put a stop to all of that, huh? Give me what I want, Jenny. I want my rematch. I reigned as champion for four months, and for me to get casted to the side for someone else is a slap to my fucking face. Do you realize that you got the power? You can make the lives of all those assholes in suits easier. It’s not a complicated process, Jenny. Give me what I want. Give me my rematch for the PURE Championship at Reasonable Doubt.
Jenny Punk: No.
Mark Michaels: I don’t take no quite well, Jenny. That’s your mistake, but this won’t be the last you see of me.
(Mark Michaels escorts himself out of the area. Jenny Punk and the two security guards get left amongst themselves.)
Jenny Punk (to the security guards): Make sure that he doesn’t get inside the arena. I can’t trust that Mark will be up to no good.
(Jenny Punk sighs before the two security guards empty the pathway for Jenny to get inside the arena.)
(PREVIOUSLY ON SHOWDOWN: The highlights of Amber Keys’ interview is shown. Her motivates for attacking Mr. DEDEDE at Battle of Egypt are noted as well as her intentions to go after the Answers World Championship. It goes forward to Jake Smith’s backstage interview. We get insight of Jake’s feelings after winning the PURE Championship before the interview is stopped by Santo Muerte who tells him that death will occur to even the “mightiest ones.” It goes to Santo Muerte’s performance in the triple threat match. Santo manages to make Viktor Stone tap out to The Offering.)
(It goes to Jenny Punk backstage and announces a fatal-4-way match at Reasonable Doubt. The winner of the match will face the Answers World Champion on the Showdown after Reasonable Doubt. The participants in the match will be picked from a lottery machine. Jenny selects two names: Ryan Wilson and Harlow Reichert. It goes forward to the segment with Ryan and Harlow and how winning the match would mean to them. It goes forward to Minerva versus Shane Gates; the two of them put on a fantastic battle as Minerva would win the match by count out. After the match, Lucas Johnson and Albert Hitchman come out and reveal their intentions to go after the Tag Team Championships. If Lucas can find a partner, the match is on.)
(The recap is cut by a public announcement from Mark Michaels. It revealed that Mark attacked a few workers in the production room in order to gain access to the room. Mark announces that Showdown is cancelled, until security rushes in and tries to escort him out. Mark tries to fight back, but soon, police officers came to arrest him. It goes to the main event with Chris Elite and Jamie O’Hara. Highlights of this wonderful match is shown as Jamie closes in for the win, but Ahren Fournier gets in the way and causes a disqualification. The ILLIONAIRES get the upper hand. Before the beat down can get worse, “ULTRAnumb” by Blue Stahli blasts through the speakers as Cameron Ella Ava springs out from the back to help Jamie out. The two teams begin to fight around the cruise ship. The husband and wife duo look at each other with wicked smirks before throwing Chris and Ahren into the sea. The recap ends with Jamie and Cameron celebrating as Ahren and Chris are out in the sea before a small boat rescues them.)
(The scene transitions inside Amway Center. The entire center is decked out in a Brody Sparks baby blue as you can see her gorgeous logo shining down the ramp with a blue spotlight on it. The crowd in the arena are dressed in their EAW Shop designed shirts of their favorite Elitists. But, a lot of the people in the crowd haven’t forgotten about the importance of this show and it’s Brody Sparks Appreciation Night! “Diamond Eyes” by Deftones is playing in the background as the crowd is going insane. “THANK YOU, BRODY!” is being chanted by every single person in the center. The ring ropes are in a Brody blue while her logo is in the middle of the ring. The camera goes to the announce table with Eve, Gavin Kirkland and Deadprez all decked out in Brody Sparks t-shirts.)
Gavin Kirkland: I can’t hear myself! The crowd in the Amway Center is going insane! The crowd has been chanting “THANK YOU, BRODY!” for the past five minutes and I am not hating that whatsoever! Welcome to Saturday Night Showdown! Tonight, it marks two years since the passing to one of the most innovative and influential Elitists of the past five years, Brody Sparks! Tonight, we honor this iconic Hall of Famer and dedicate this show to her!
Eve: It’s an excellent show, Gavin! Tonight, we witness The Goddess Cameron Ella Ava take on The GOAT, Ahren Fournier in our main event! With their two respective partner’s ringside, something is going to go down in that match!
Deadprez: We’re also going to see our new PURE Champion Jake Smith in action as he takes on The Saint of Death, Santo Muerte! It’s also PURE rules, so it should be interesting to see how these two Elitists do in this match!
Gavin Kirkland: We’re also seeing a bit of a preview of the fatal-4-way at Reasonable Doubt as two of the members picked from the lottery last week face off against each other! Harlow Reichert versus Ryan Wilson is going to be a good one!
Eve: Right now, we are going to open with Kensingten Calhoun-Astor and Shaker Jones! Let’s go to Gina Romano in the ring!
(The camera pans back to the arena where Gina Romano is standing by with a microphone in hand)
(The sound of a wolf howling echoes throughout the arena before “I Love It Loud” by KISS booms. Shaker Jones steps out onto the stage to a warm reception from the crowd before heading down to the ring)
Gina Romano: The following contest is scheduled for one fall! Introducing FIRST! From Inglis, Manitoba, Canada! Weighing in at two hundred and thirty eight pounds! HE IS “THE CANADIAN WOLF”!…………SHAKER JOOOOOOOOOOOONNNNNNNNNNEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSS!!!!
Deadprez: What an opportunity Shaker Jones had last week going toe to toe with the Answers World Champion in Mr. DEDEDE! And it’s safe to say he gave it his absolute best!
Eve: No doubt about it! Defeat is always disappointing but Shaker can take solace in the fact that he had an incredible showing against the greatest of all time! He’s been rather luckless at times but any single week could change anyone’s fortunes.
(“Hell on Heels” by the Pistol Annies hits as Kensingten Calhoun-Astor slowly steps out behind the curtain to a smattering of jeers from the crowd. Her lack of care for their reception remains ever evident as he heads down the ramp)
Gina Romano: And his opponent! From Savannah, Georgia! Weighing in at one hundred and forty three pounds! SHE IS “THE STEEL MAGNOLIA OF ELITE ANSWERS WRESTLING”!……….KENSINGTEN CALHOUN-AAAAAAAAAAAASSSSSSSSSSTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTOOOOOOOOOORRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!
Deadprez: Four matches into her time here in EAW and Kensingten Calhoun-Astor is looking to get back on the winning path with a victory tonight over Shaker Jones!
Gavin Kirkland: Wins are easy to rack up in this company but there’s about a hundred examples of people who couldn’t get back to their winning ways after a handful of defeats. And like you said, she has a chance tonight to get back on the winning path.
(Both competitors ready themselves in the ring as the official calls for the bell)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Deadprez: Bell rings and we’re underway! Shaker and Kensingten circle the ring for a moment before meeting in the center of the ring, locking up in a collar and elbow tie up! Jostling for control to open this contest; Shaker with the weight and slight height advantage manages to power Kensingten back into the corner! Shaker with all intent and purpose here tonight with immediate control of this contest but the referee steps in to force a break.
Ref: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR!
Eve: Shaker reluctantly backs away at the command of the official, not looking to get himself disqualified so early in this contest. Victory is always important but for Shaker Jones, tonight could be a big step in the right direction!
Deadprez: Match has almost reset as both competitors step back into the center of the ring, but this time Kensingten with a bit more pace behind each step. She steps closer into the center of the ring, looking to lock up once more in a collar and elbow tie up with Shaker Jones. Shaker steps forward himself but Kensingten drops to a knee and sweeps behind Shaker, immediately propelling herself back to her feet and taking Shaker down to a knee with a headlock!
Gavin Kirkland: Nothing fancy in it and whatever fire Shaker Jones had entering this match might have just been put out!
Eve: Shaker trying to force his way back to his feet but Kensingten wastes absolutely no time in transitioning out of the headlock; wrapping her arms around the waist of Shaker Jones and connects with a german suplex! Dropping Shaker on the back of his head, Kensingten rolls him over and straight into the cover!
Ref: ONE! TWO!–
Deadprez: And Shaker quickly shoots the arm off the canvas to break the pin! But almost immediately Kensingten clutches the risen arm of Shaker and rolls him over– LOOKING TO LOCK SHAKER IN THE KIMURA!
Gavin Kirkland: But Shaker quickly realises the danger he’s in and scrambles out of the predicament and rolls right out of the ring!
Eve: Shaker certainly knows how dangerous that Kimura is. No doubt he knows he can’t make any such mistakes again to avoid having his arms potentially torn right off. Shaker takes a moment to regroup and refocus but Kensingten backs away from the ropes, inviting Shaker to climb back into the ring.
Gavin Kirkland: There’s no bullshit with Kensingten Calhoun-Astor, she’s giving Shaker a fair chance to get back into this ring!
Deadprez: Shaker cautiously steps back onto the ring apron, his eyes refusing to leave Kensingten; readying himself in case she takes advantage. Shaker slowly steps through the ropes and Kensingten remains in the middle of the ring…
Eve: AND KENSINGTEN STEPS IN WITH A KICK RIGHT TO THE LOWER RIGHT LEG! Shaker collapses back to the canvas to a chorus of boos from the crowd but she just does not give a damn! Shaker tries to race back to his feet but Kensingten picks up the pace, bouncing off the ropes and immediately connects with a forearm, taking Shaker right back down to where he came from! Now Kensingten starts laying the right fist down over the head and connecting with the ribs as Shaker attempts to cover from the blows. Kensingten drags Shaker back to his feet, and connects with a snap suplex! Kensingten rolls straight into the cover!
Ref: ONE! TWO! THRE–
Gavin Kirkland: This time Shaker breaks the pin with merely lifting his shoulder off the canvas! Refusing to raise his arm and allow himself to again potentially get trapped in the Kimura!
Deadprez: Shaker with enough wherewithal to make a smart, calculated move. But Kensingten really isn’t looking at letting this match slip through her grasp, she once more hoists Shaker up to his feet and up onto her shoulders! Looking to put Shaker down with “Bless Your Heart”, the Electric Chair Driver! But Shaker with the repeated shots to the back of the head. Trying to break free from the perilous position! And he does! Shaker drops off the shoulders of Kensingten Calhoun-Astor and tries to roll her up for a surprise pin!
Eve: But Kensingten hasn’t been tested in this match as she immediately pushes Shaker and out of the pin. Both competitors stagger back to their feet, Kensingten back to hers first; she swings wildly with the lariat but Shaker ducks beneath it! Shaker bounces off the ropes and comes flying back with the flying forearm smash!
Gavin Kirkland: He’s feeling the momentum turn back into his favour! Shaker races back to his feet as Kensingten stumbles to hers! Again! Shaker takes her down with the flying forearm smash! The wind has been taken out of Kensingten’s sails as Shaker pulls her back to her feet and locks her in for the pumphandle suplex! Kensingten tries to fight out of the maneuver but Shaker counters her efforts with a still knee connecting straight on the nose! And it’s enough! Shaker drives Kensingten back down to the canvas with the pumphandle suplex and hooks both legs for the pin!
Ref: ONE! TWO! THRE–
Deadprez: But Kensingten kicks out before the count of three. Shaker thought he might have had her with both legs hooked but alas, the referee signals the kickout. Shaker doesn’t have much choice however, he has to keep going, has to keep pushing himself on; he can’t allow Kensingten to breath, to recover enough to get back in this match!
Gavin Kirkland: And I think he realises that, Deadprez!
Eve: Shaker clutches both legs of Kensingten, crosses them over and locks in the Texas Cloverleaf! You can see the anguish already setting in on Kensingten’s face as Shaker Jones has the submission hold locked in tight with his hands well and truly grasped around the legs of his opponent! Kensington begins the slow and arduous crawl towards the ropes but she has the weight disadvantage to contend with! Shaker replants his feet to the canvas, digging his heels into the mat and trying to stop his opponent from reaching the ropes!
Deadprez: Every inch seems like a mile for Kensingten but slowly but surely she’s getting there! She begins to reach out with her right hand, trying to get every little bit the joints in her arm are willing to give without coming free from their sockets or tearing the ligaments holding them together! Her left arm being driving back down to the canvas with every attempt to get closer and closer!
Gavin Kirkland: SHE’S ALMOST THERE!
Eve: HER FINGERS BRIEFLY TOUCHING THE ROPES…SHE GRABS IT!
Gavin Kirkland: And Shaker Jones drags her back to the middle of the ring and Kensingten drops down! How much did that effort take out of her? How much energy was dispelled just in that attempt alone?
Deadprez: Shaker lowers his frame just a bit further to the canvas; more and more and more pressure applied to that exposed spine of Kensingten who jolts off the canvas with clear anguish dashed across her face. Shaker Jones has wrestled this contest back into his favour well and truly. He might not be able to put Kensingten away with the Texas Cloverleaf alone but he’s draining more and more out of her. And Kensingten pushes her off the canvas, she’s trying to crawl back to the ropes, back to try and break the submission but she can’t possibly drag herself back there!
Eve: Shaker realises it! He has Kensingten beat! Shaker signals for the end! He releases the Cloverleaf and drags Kensingten by her blonde hair back to her feet and pulls her in! He hoists her up and spins! THE HOWLING! THE LIFTING SPINNING DDT!
Deadprez: NO! Kensingten drops to a knee and blocks it! Shaker tries to lift her back up to try again! But Kensingten remains dropped down on one knee! Visible frustration washing over the face of Shaker Jones; regret of letting go of the Cloverleaf so soon or even going straight for the kill! The importance of victory on the line and he’s going for broke! Shaker backs away from the fallen Kensingten who raises back to her feet under her own power! Shaker comes charging back, with as much speed as he possibly could! The Candadian Clothesline swings wildly! But Kensingten ducks beneath the lethal lariat. Shaker immediately comes to a halt and swings back around–
Gavin Kirkland: POW!
Eve: THE SOUTHERN SWAG SHOT MIGHT HAVE JUST KNOCKED THE LIGHTS OUT OF SHAKER JONES! SHAKER STUMBLES DOWN TO A SINGLE KNEE AND KENSINGTEN IMMEDIATELY DROPS DOWN, TWISTING THE ARM OF SHAKER JONES AROUND THE BACK AND LOCKING IN THE KIMURA — SOMETHING TO CRY ABOUT CINCHED IN TIGHT! SHAKER JONES IMMEDIATELY FEELS THE PAIN FLOW FROM THE FOREARM RIGHT UP TO THE SHOULDER, HE’S TRYING DESPERATELY TO REACH THE ROPE, TRYING TO DRAG KENSINGTEN CALHOUN-ASTOR ACROSS THE CANVAS. HE’S GETTING CLOSER, BUT KENSINGTEN SHIFTS THE BODY WEIGHT BACK TOWARDS THE CENTER OF THE RING.
Deadprez: SHAKER TRYING TO RESIST IT BUT KENSINGTEN CINCHES THE HOLD IN EVEN TIGHTER; SHAKER’S BODY CAN’T KEEP IT UP AND COLLAPSES BACK TOWARDS THE MIDDLE OF THE RING. AND HE TAPS! HE CAN’T HOLD ON ANY LONGER! SHAKER JONES TAPS TO SOMETHING TO CRY ABOUT!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“Hell on Heels” by the Pistol Annies hits as Kensingten Calhoun-Astor releases the submission and rises to her feet. The referee steps in and raises her hand before she snatches it back down and celebrates her win as the fans boo)
Gina Romano: HERE IS YOUR WINNER…….KENSINGTEN CALHOUN-AAAAAAAAAAAASSSSSSSSSSTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTOOOOOOOOOORRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!
Deadprez: A tough fought victory here tonight for Kensingten Calhoun-Astor, who gets back to her winning ways and on what is such an important night for the women of Elite Answers Wrestling! Shaker Jones gave all that he could to pull out the victory Kensingten was just able to edge him out enough to walk away with the win!
Gavin Kirkland: I’m sure the Brody would be immensely proud of the wealth of talent all three brands have these days; proud to see the bright futures of someone like Kensingten!
(Shaker rolls out of the ring and drives his fist against the ring apron)
Eve: Disappointment for Shaker Jones; he gave all that he could tonight and just came up short! But I think tonight was a good indicator that persistence will eventually pay off for Shaker in due time!
(The camera cuts back to Kensingten making her way up to the ring, mocking the fans jeering alongside the aisle before cutting to elsewhere.)
(The scene transitions to Jenny Punk in her office. At the very sight of her, the crowd goes to a mixed reception of the Showdown General Manager. Jenny has a smile on her face. Next to her is the same lottery machine last week. Inside the lottery machine, are pieces of paper folded in half. Once again, each of these papers has names for every Elitist on the Showdown — minus, Mr. DEDEDE, and the two Elitists picked last week, Ryan Wilson and Harlow Reichert.)
Jenny Punk: Hey, EAW Universe? It’s Jenny once again, and last week, we introduced this lottery machine. Inside the device, there are pieces of paper with every Elitist’s name on them. Minus the Answers World Champion himself and the two Elitists picked last week, Ryan Wilson and Harlow Reichert. Like I promised last week, I will select two more names to compete in the fatal-4-way match at Reasonable Doubt. So, here goes nothing.
(Jenny Punk gets her hand on the handle and rolls the lottery machine a few times before stopping. Jenny opens the door and gets her hand inside the machine. She scrambles for a piece of paper for a moment before pulling it out.)
Jenny Punk: The third competitor in the fatal-4-way will be…
(Jenny Punk opens the piece of paper before reading it.)
Jenny Punk: …SHANE GATES!
(The crowd roars in boos at the mention of Shane Gates’ name.)
Jenny Punk: Alright, this is where things get real.
(Jenny Punk closes the little door and gets her hand on the handle before rolling it a couple more times. She stops spinning before opening the small door again. She scrambles for another piece of paper before pulling it out.)
Jenny Punk: The last competitor in the fatal-4-way match will be…can I get a drum roll!
(Right on cue, a drum roll is heard in the background. Jenny Punk opens the piece of paper before reading.)
Jenny Punk: …SHAKER JONES!
(The crowd gives a friendly reception at the mention of Shaker Jones’ name.)
Jenny Punk: Congratulations to Shane and Shaker on this opportunity! At Reasonable Doubt, it will be Ryan Wilson versus Harlow Reichert versus Shane Gates versus Shaker Jones in a fatal-4-way match! The winner receives a shot at the Answers World Championship on the Showdown after Reasonable Doubt!
(The crowd pops for that fantastic announcement!)
Jenny Punk: Good luck to the four Elitists! Let’s resume to the show —
(Suddenly, a burst of flames appears! The lottery machine lights on fire, which startles the General Manager. Jenny Punk displays the ugliest startled face that anyone could make.)
???: I said that we should lay off doing stuff like that!
(Constance Blevins’ voice appears in the background. Heavenly Hell enters the scene with their Unified Tag Team Championships on their shoulders. Constance has a fire extinguisher in her grasps. Minerva has a wicked grin on her face. The crowd gives a mixed reaction to the champions.)
Minerva: Come on, the look on her face was priceless!
(Constance Blevins squeezes the fire extinguisher, aims it, and puts out the fire.)
Jenny Punk: May I help you?
Minerva: Last week, you announced that we were going to defend the Unified Tag Team Championships at Reasonable Doubt. However, Heavenly Hell doesn’t have any contenders lined up, and it’s not like you’re going to place anyone in our path that is going to be worth our time.
Constance Blevins: Also, I don’t think that Lucas Johnson is going to find a partner on time, which means that Heavenly Hell will be left off the card. I mean, you don’t take us seriously, Jenny. If you did, you would be giving us as much time and investment as you do with the ILLIONAIRES. You mock us and claim that we need to prove ourselves to those two men that can’t lace up our boots in the ring. However, it’s not like you have allowed us to show that we can defeat any team on Showdown. Where’s our opportunity to shine? Where’s our chance to prove once again why Heavenly Hell is the most dominant force in this company?
Minerva: If you don’t have shit for us on Showdown, we can go off to another brand and seek the competition. Last week, we watched Voltage, and there was something that piqued our interested, right Constance?
Constance Blevins: Raven Roberts welcomed anyone from Dynasty, Voltage, and Showdown to step to the plate and face her at Wicked Games for the Universal Women’s Championship.
Minerva: Heavenly Hell wants in on the match. Raven Roberts wants to be a fighting champion, but Heavenly Hell is the fighting champions in this company. If you’re not going to give us any competition on Showdown, we are going off to Voltage, and we’re going to face Raven Roberts and take the Universal Women’s Championship from her.
Jenny Punk: You think that I am going to be so willing and give you an opportunity at Raven Roberts? I’ve seen the shots you’ve thrown at me, and if you think that I am going to provide you with what you want, you are mistaken. I’m not going to give Heavenly Hell a shot at Raven Roberts at Wicked Games.
(The crowd boos at that proclamation!)
Constance Blevins: I think you’re making a colossal mistake, Jenny —
Jenny Punk: I’m not done. Don’t interrupt me. I’m not going to give Heavenly Hell a title shot, but I am more than willing to give a title shot to one of you two. You think that you can run off Showdown when things don’t go your way, but you two are still members of my roster. You are still pawns in my game, and that’s not going to change. Next week, I will be hosting a Beat the Clock Challenge and the member of Heavenly Hell with the best time face Raven Roberts for the Universal Women’s Championship at Wicked Games!
(The crowd pops for the announcement. Constance Blevins and Minerva look at each other with an emotionless look on their faces. They’re not sure what to think about the match.)
Jenny Punk: And if the two of you think about half-assing your performances on Showdown, I’ll strip you two of the titles and promise that you’ll never get your hands on a championship for as long as I reign as Showdown General Manager.
(Everything goes silent with these three women. It’s safe to say that Heavenly Hell isn’t happy about this match at all. They are not pleased with the fact that Jenny Punk is trying to pin Constance Blevins and Minerva against each other. Even though the members of Heavenly Hell aren’t facing each other in the ring, they are still competing with each other for a chance to meet Raven Roberts at Wicked Games. )
Jenny Punk: Good luck to you two! May the best woman win! 😀
(Jenny Punk shoos Heavenly Hell out of her office as Constance Blevins and Minerva are still speechless about her trying to pin Heavenly Hell against each other for the sake of facing Raven Roberts. Heavenly Hell escorts themselves out of Jenny’s office before it goes to commercial break.)
(Commercial for the Heart Break Boy’s new movie: Finding Love While Bald.)
(Camera opens to Gina Romano standing in the ring.)
Gina Romano: Ladies and gentlemen, the following contest is scheduled for…
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!
(“Young and Bitter” by Hot Tag Media hits as Lucas Johnson walks out wearing his ring gear, a purple regal cape, and an iron crown. Albert Hitchman walks out behind him wearing a three piece suit and a single giant ring to represent his status in Johnson’s royal lineup. The crowd boos as the pair begin to make their way down to the ring.)
Gina Romano: Introducing first, making his way to the ring from Atlanta, Georgia… weighing in at 205 pounds… LUCAS JOHNSON!
Deadprez: Lucas Johnson stepped out last week as he and Hitchman decided to call out the Tag Team Champions. There’s only one problem. Who is going to be his partner?
Gavin Kirkland: ARE YOU KIDDING ME? WHO WOULDN’T WANT TO BE HIS PARTNER! I AM TELLING YOU ALL NOW! GET IN EARLY AND GET ON BOARD! THE REIGN OF EMPEROR JOHNSON IS HERE!
Eve: Well he better be able to back up a nickname like the emperor if he’s taking on Heavenly Hell.
(Lucas climbs into the ring, removing his cape and posing with his crown on his head. His music then fades and is replaced by “No More” by Disturbed as Constance Blevins steps out with Minerva, both women wearing their Unified Tag Team Championships. The crowd boos yet again as the two smirk and walk down the ramp.)
Gina Romano: And his opponent, making her way to the ring accompanied by Minerva… from Baltimore, Maryland… weighing in at 120 pounds… she is one half of the EAW Unified Tag Team Champions… CONSTANCE BLEVINS!
Deadprez: I gotta ask, Gavin. You really gonna cheer for Lucas over Constance and Minerva?
Gavin Kirkland: ………
Gavin Kirkland: I AM THINKING! STFU DAMN!
Eve: Constance is far from the same woman she was when she first arrived in EAW during the Empire era. Once a meek and mild mannered girl, she’s come well out of her shell and is someone to keep an eye on at all times because you can never quite know what she’s going to pull off.
(Constance hands her title to Minerva who nods at her partner. Constance climbs into the ring, pausing to pose on the apron with a malicious grin on her face. She steps inside, loosening herself up as she eyes Lucas on the other side. With both in their corners, the referee calls for the bell.)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Deadprez: And we are underway! Lucas Johnson bursts out of the corner! Looking to make a statement in this match! He charges Constance in the corner and is already firing away on the Tag Team Champion! Going for it with forearms to the face of Constance! Pulling back and now throwing kicks to the midsection! Keeping Constance in the corner and doing what he can to keep the pressure on her! Trying to wear her down early! But here comes the referee to break it up!
Ref: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FI— BREAK IT UP!
Eve: The referee pulls him away and Lucas steps back with his hands up! But now he tries to rush past the referee! BUT CONSTANCE SLIPS OUT OF THE CORNER AND ROLLS LUCAS UP! SHE GRABS THE TIGHTS! SHE’S GONNA STEAL ONE!
Deadprez: OH! BUT THE REFEREE SEES THE HANDFUL OF TIGHTS AND HE WAVES OFF THE COUNT! Constance now arguing telling him that he counted three and that should be the match but the official won’t let it go with the dirty pin! Constance better stay mindful! LUCAS IS BACK UP AND GRABS HER FROM BEHIND! REAR WAISTLOCK! GERMAN SUPLEX SENDS CONSTANCE CRASHING BY THE BACK OF THE NECK INTO THE TURNBUCKLES!
Gavin Kirkland: The Emperor is in full effect! Constance clutching at her neck and kicking her feet in pain now!! Lucas now smells blood in the water like a not-shark and looking to strike! Minerva cheering her partner from the outside but it doesn’t look good! Johnson now grabbing Constance and deadlifting her off the mat in that rear waist lock yet again! He hoists her back… BRIDGING GERMAN SUPLEX! CONSTANCE IS DROPPED AGAIN ON THE BACK OF HER NECK AND LUCAS HOLDS THE BRIDGE! SHOULDERS ARE DOWN! CAN HE DO IT?
Eve: Constance kicks out! She’s a champion for a reason and it’s going to take more than that to put her down! But that neck is hurting her here in the early stages and Lucas is looking to exploit it! Johnson is already transitioning over! He locks in a crossface on Constance! Trying to crank that injured neck! Constance is hurting! She has to find a way out of this but Lucas is already looking to tighten the hold! Pulling backwards! Creating that vicious arc on her spine!
Deadprez: You said earlier you never know what to expect from Constance. But the same can be said for Lucas. He’s a technician in the ring but he’s also the man who used a goddamn dead shark as a weapon in Cash in the Vault earlier this year! You can’t really take your eyes off him either! He saw his opening and is taking full advantage! Constance has barely made a move so far! Lucas holding that crossface in tight! Now lifting Constance backwards with the crossface and applying a knee into her back in addition to the hold for added pain! Constance is scratching at the mat as she tries to find her way out of the hold! Lucas tries to tighten his grip—
Eve: BUT CONSTANCE FEELS THE SWITCH AND USES IT AS AN OPENING! She rolls her shoulder back and manages to turn her head and take the pressure off her neck! She manages to slip around the side and ties up Lucas’s legs! Constance has a seated Indian Deathlock applied! Torquing at the knees of Johnson! Lucas is in hurting now but he’s still fairly fresh! He’s taken no real punishment yet! Lucas press is up with his arms! Trying to crawl his way to the ropes! Constance pressing that hold in with everything she has! Lucas is straining as he can probably feels the stretch on the tendons in his knee but he continues to crawl! Inch by inch!
Gavin Kirkland: THE EMPEROR HAS THE ROPE!
Eve: But Constance is not letting go!
Ref: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FI—
Deadprez: Constance finally releases the hold and Lucas is free! Constance is quick to her feet and hits the ropes! Lucas stumbling on that knee that was just locked up! AND A SHINING WIZARD FROM CONSTANCE! LUCAS’S EYES ROLL BACK IN HIS HEAD AND CONSTANCE IS DISHING IT ALL RIGHT BACK NOW AS SHE FINALLY BEGINS TO MOUNT SOME OFFENSE! Constance working her way to the top rope! Glancing back to line up her shot! MOONSAULT FROM THE TOP! SHE HOOKS THE LEGS! THIS COULD DO IT!
Gavin Kirkland: THE EMPEROR LIVES! How dare you all continue to doubt him! Look at the survival instincts from the man! The myth! The legend! The shark! The Ace! THE EMPEROR!
Eve: BUT CONSTANCE NOT LETTING UP! SHES BACK TO HER FEET! LINING UP! LUCAS SITS UP! RIGHT INTO A SUPERKICK TO THE JAW!
Gavin Kirkland: :kellycry:
Deadprez: Constance showing that aggression she’s become known for of late! Stomping into Lucas and laying vicious kicks into his ribs! Using the rope to keep her balance! She hops up and hits a double stomp right into Lucas’s chest! Constance is far from the largest competitor on Showdown but that stomp still feels like your chest is caving in! Lucas is coughing on the mat now and Blevins looks proud of turning the tides the way she has! Minerva clapping her hands as Hitchman looks concerned on the outside! Lucas is trying to climb to his feet! Hes clutching at his rib cage! Constance did some real damage! And she’s looking to capitalize! She’s in position right behind Johnson! Lucas makes it to his feet! He turns— LIONESSFIRE!
Eve: LUCAS SHOVED HIMSELF AWAY! He just managed to avoid that STO driver from Constance! That would’ve been it! Constance not letting it deter her though! Looking to keep things going! She moves in on Johnson! BUT LUCAS TURNS THROUGH IT AND RUNS CONSTANCE INTO THE CORNER! THE FORMER LIONESS COLLIDES WITH THE TURNBUCKLES AND BOUNCES OFF! RIGHT INTO A SKULL CRUSHING FINALE FROM JOHNSON!
Deadprez: HITCHMAN IS SCREAMING ON THE OUTSIDE! JOHNSON NOW CLIMBING HIS WAY TO THE TOP ROPE! LOOKING FOR HIS BIGGEST SHOT! LINES HIMSELF UP! RED ARROW!
Gavin Kirkland: IT CONNECTS! THE EMPEROR HAS DONE IT! HE HOOKS THE LEGS!
Deadprez: WHAT AN UPSET!
Eve: BUT CONSTANCE HAS A HAND ON THE ROPE! THE REFEREE IS WAVING THE COUNT OFF! THIS MATCH WILL CONTINUE! Johnson can’t believe it! He’s holding his hands up to the referee almost demanding that it be an official three count! But the referee simply says no! Hitchman is screaming at the official! Minerva now pounding the apron, trying to will her partner to her feet! Johnson grabs Constance by the hair! He’s got a disgusting look on his face as he looks to try and finish her off! He grabs Constance by the wrist! He twists through! Feeds her arm underneath! Pump handle position! PUMPHANDLE POWER BOMB!
Deadprez: NO! CONSTANCE USES HER FOOT AND BREAKS HIS GRIP! SHE BACKFLIPS OUT OF IT AND LANDS ON HER FEET! CONSTANCE WITH A ROUNDHOUSE KICK! IT CATCHES JOHNSON RIGHT IN THE EAR! LUCAS IS STAGGERED! CONSTANCE HAS CREATED AN OPENING HERE! SHE HAS TO TAKE IT! SHE RUSHES IN! LIONESSFIRE!
Eve: SHE GETS IT THIS TIME! THE STO DRIVER CONNECTS AND CONSTANCE MAKES THE PIN!
Deadprez: BUT HITCHMAN IS ON THE RING APRON AND WAS DISTRACTING THE REFEREE! THE REF NEVER SAW THE PIN! HITCHMAN ARGUING AND DOING EVERYTHING TO HOLD THE OFFICIAL’S ATTENTION! MINERVA GRABBING AT THE LEG OF HITCHMAN! BUT HITCHMAN KICKS HER AWAY!
Eve: BUT CONSTANCE WITH A RUNNING KNEE TO THE SIDE OF ALBERT’S HEAD! HITCHMAN COLLAPSES TO THE GROUND! She turns her attention back to Lucas who is trying to press back to his knees!
Deadprez: Constance moving in— RUNNING KICK!
Eve: BUT JOHNSON DUCKS UNDERNEATH IT! HE GRABS CONSTANCE BY THE TIGHTS AND SHOVES HER INTO THE ROPES! CONSTANCE’S LEG GOES IN BETWEEN THE MIDDLE AND TOP ROPES! SHE’S TANGLED UP FOR A MOMENT! AND JOHNSON NOT LETTING IT SLIP AWAY! HE RUSHES IN!
Deadprez: BUT HE EATS A BACK ELBOW FROM CONSTANCE! JOHNSON STUMBLES BACKWARDS! CONSTANCE PULLS HER LEGS OUT OF THE ROPES AND STEADIES HERSELF BUT LUCAS ALREADY COMING! MASSIVE CLOTHESLINE!
Eve: BUT CONSTANCE SIDE STEPS AND GRABS LUCAS BY THE BACK OF THE HEAD! SHE USES HIS MOMENTUM TO SEND HIM OVER THE TOP ROPE! Constance has a moment but she isn’t letting up yet! She runs back! Hits the ropes! TOPE CON HILO!
Gavin Kirkland: BUT THE EMPEROR SHOWING HIS POWER! HE CATCHES CONSTANCE OUT OF MID AIR! HE HAS HER IN A CRADLED POSITION! POPS HER UP! JOHNSON POWERBOMBS BLEVINS INTO THE STEEL STEPS!
Eve: Where did that come from? Johnson just completely turned the tides when I thought Blevins was about to go into another tear! The referee yelling at both of them to get into the ring but Johnson just yelling back at him to shut up!
Deadprez: The count has started and Johnson couldn’t care less! He grabs Constance by the hair and bashes her head backwards against the steps! Johnson could be borderline on a disqualification if he doesn’t stop abusing those steps! Constance is in pain still from that Powerbomb but it doesn’t look like Johnson is about to let up anytime soon!
Eve: Johnson now stomping his boot into the champion! Constance doing her best to recover but Lucas is keeping the pressure on! He now grabs the apron and presses his boot into Blevins’s throat!
Eve: BUT HERE COMES MINERVA! She’s yelling at Johnson to take it back in the ring and stop with the steps! Johnson flips her off but Minerva isn’t going to have it! But the referee now warning Minerva not to get involved! Minerva turns to hell back at the ref—
Deadprez: BUT JOHNSON JUST BLASTED MINERVA FROM BEHIND! HE SHOVES HER FACE FIRST INTO THE STEEL POST! THE GYPSY MOTH’S HEAD JUST BOUNCED OFF THE POST AND IT LOOKS LIKE SHE MAY BE BUSTED OPEN! JOHNSON LOOKS PLEASED WITH HIMSELF AND NOW TURNS BACK TO CONSTANCE!
Eve: Johnson grabs Constance by the shoulder as he tries to hoist her to her feet! He places her over his shoulder! Johnson turns and looks to the barricade! He runs! SNAKE EYES!
Deadprez: BUT CONSTANCE SLIPS OFF THE BACK! SHE SHOVES LUCAS FROM BEHIND INTO THE BARRICADE! SHE FOLLOWS UP AND CLOTHESLINES LUCAS OVER THE BARRICADE AND INTO THE CROWD!
Eve: Constance hears the count and she knows she doesn’t have anymore time! Lucas is already starting to pick himself up! She turns and darts towards the ring! She won’t let herself be counted out! Wait… what the hell?!?
Deadprez: What’s going on?!? A pair of freakishly massive hands just reached out from under the apron and grabbed Constance by the ankles! She can’t break herself free! She’s trying to pull herself up and get back in the ring!
Eve: Lucas Johnson climbs back over the barricade! He rushes past Constance and just winks at her! What the fuck is going on? Lucas slides into the ring! But Constance still can’t break free of the grip! The referee can’t see the hands just sticking out from under the ring! Not like this!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Gina Romano: Here is your winner by countout… LUCAS JOHNSON!
Eve: What absolute horse shit!
Gavin Kirkland: I told you all to believe in the reign of the emperor! :blessed:
Deadprez: Just what the hell is going on here?
(Lucas celebrates in the ring like he just won the world championship. Constance is still struggling to break herself free. Minerva is pulling herself to her feet, blood running down her face. Albert Hitchman drags himself over from the side and pulls up to his feet as he grabs a microphone from the timekeepers area. He’s clearly still hurting from being knocked around.)
Albert Hitchman: Heh… heh… You see… Heavenly Harlots… you don’t become a successful man like Albert Hitchman… without the ability to plan ahead.
(Constance is punching at the hands that refuse to release their grip on her. Minerva steps around the corner clearly confused by the hands holding her partner’s legs before trying to pry her free.)
Albert Hitchman: We had to ask ourselves. Who would make a good partner for my client? Who would be a fit with the Emperor? We needed someone who could intimidate. We needed someone who could put on a display. We needed a man who physically represented the true talent of Lucas Johnson!
(Suddenly, the hands yank Constance’s feet from underneath her, causing her to fall and bounce her head off the floor. Then the enormous mass of Lance Blackfyre begins to pull himself from underneath the ring.)
Albert Hitchman: Emperor Johnson needed the Beast Blackfyre!
(Minerva is already stomping into the head of Lance as he climbs out but as soon as he’s out he reaches up and shoves Minerva back.)
Deadprez: LANCE BLACKFYRE HAS ALIGNED WITH LUCAS AND HITCHMAN! THIS BEHEMOTH COULD ACTUALLY BE THE THING THAT MAKES THE DIFFERENCE! MINERVA ALREADY COMING BACK AND TRYING TO TAKE IT TO HIM AGAIN! BUT LANCE GRABS HER BY THE THROAT! HE SMASHES HER BACK AGAINST THE STEEL POST! THIS MONSTER OF A MAN IS MANHANDLING THE TAG TEAM CHAMPION! HE HOLDS HER UP WITH ONE ARM BY THE THROAT! LANCE STEPS OVER!
Eve: MY GOD! HE JUST HURLED MINERVA INTO THE EAW UNIVERSE WITH ONE ARM! BUT CONSTANCE IS BACK UP NOW! SHE LEAPS ONTO LANCE’S BACK! TRYING TO APPLY A CHOKE AND SUBDUE THIS BEAST!
Gavin Kirkland: BUT IT WON’T BE ENOUGH! LANCE REACHES BACK AND GRABS CONSTANCE BY THE HEAD! HE BASHES HIS MASSIVE FIST INTO HER SKULL BEFORE PULLING HER OVER HIS SHOULDER! Wait… Wait!!!! WAIT!!!!!!!!
Eve: LANCE JUST POWERSLAMMED CONSTANCE THROUGH OUR COMMENTARY TABLE! CONSTANCE IS LAID OUT HERE AT RINGSIDE!
Deadprez: BUT HERE COMES MINERVA! NOT TO HE HELD DOWN THE TAG CHAMPS KEEP FIGHTING! HEAVENLY HELL GOING FOR BLACKFYRE AND NOT BACKING DOWN! MINERVA COMES IN! DIVING DROPKICK FROM THE BARRICADE CATCHES BLACKFYRE IN THE FACE! THE BEAST IS STAGGERED! MINERVA CHARGES IN AGAIN!
Gavin Kirkland: Nope.
Eve: LANCE JUST CAUGHT MINERVA BY THE THROAT AGAIN! HE POPS HER UP ONTO HIS SHOULDERS! FEARS ORIGINS! THE BATISTA BOMB! HE SMASHES MINERVA DOWN RIGHT ON TOP OF CONSTANCE IN THE MIDST OF ALL THIS DEBRIS! THE TAG CHAMPIONS AREN’T MOVING! THIS SHOCK ATTACK AFTER THEY WERE BOTH ALREADY HURT HAS TAKEN THEM TO THE LIMIT!
(Hitchman is seen chuckling as he goes to speak again.)
Albert Hitchman: I hope you two are comfortable being laid on your backs like this, seeing as it’s all you’re probably truly good for. Because when Reasonable Doubt is wrapped up, you two will once again be on your backs. Your time at the top of the Tag Team Division will end! And the reign of the Blackfyre Beast and the One True Emperor will begin! And that’s not a prediction, ladies. It’s a goddamn preview.
(Lucas looks so pleased with everything as he laughs from inside the ring. Albert and Lance begin to make their way around the ring as Lucas rolls out to the floor. Lucas and Lance pause at the side and briefly pick up the tag team title belts, lifting them into the air before tossing them back to the ground.)
Deadprez: What did we just witness?
Eve: Lance Blackfyre just tore through the Tag Team Champions… could this be the end of Heavenly Hell?
(Lance, Lucas, and Hitchman all make their way up the ramp, grinning ear to ear. The final shot shows Constance and Minerva, laid out on top of each other, neither of them moving.)
(Commercial for Gawdverbs. If you want the book, too damn bad. You missed your chance.)
(Showdown returns from commercial break and cuts to Gina.)
Gina Romano: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SCHEDULED FOR…
Crowd: ONE FALL!
(‘It Follows’ by Cane Hill begins to blast across the sound system and the crowd starts to boo.)
Eve: Welcome back to Showdown! We’re jumping right back into the action with this match featuring Xander Payne and Shane Gates!
Gina Romano: INTRODUCING FIRST… FROM BRAMPTON, ONTARIO… WEIGHING IN AT 255 POUNDS… HE IS THE PAYNEKILLER… XANDER PAYNE!!!
(Xander walks out and begins making his way to the ring.)
Gavin Kirkland: With every step he takes, Xander Payne sets off an Earthquake. I would hate to monitor the Ritcher scale whenever Xander wrestles. That must be a hell of a job.
Eve: You’re honestly so rude. Xander Payne only weighs 255 pounds.
Gavin Kirkland: :usure:
Deadprez: I’m looking forward to this match, just to be real. Some personal shots got taken, and I don’t doubt that these two won’t throw down tonight.
(Xander climbs inside the ring and takes his corner, while his music fades out. It’s soon replaced by ‘People = Shit’ by Slipknot. The crowd continues to boo as Shane Gates and his lady, Angela Grant, make their way out and start heading to the ring.)
Gina Romano: AND HIS OPPONENT… BEING ACCOMPANIED TO THE RING BY ANGELA GRANT… FROM HUNTINGTON BEACH, CALIFORNIA… SHANE GATES!!!
Gavin Kirkland: :mjlit: Look at those tight jeans Angela has on! I bet they’re from Fashion Nova!
Eve: Shane Gates is walking down the ramp with a purpose. He absolutely wants to score the upset win tonight. Gates feels a lot of people have written him off due to his lack of results, but if he can defeat Xander tonight, then the conversations about Shane Gates will definitely change.
Deadprez: Like I said, Gates made this match personal this week and now he’s going to have to back it all up. He’s got the skills, so lets see if he can put it all together this week and score a much needed win.
(Shane and Angela share a good luck kiss before Shane climbs into the ring. He gets set for the match and a few seconds later, the referee calls for the bell.)
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Eve: Here we go! Immediately Xander and Shane lock up and it’s a battle for positioning!
Gavin Kirkland: Xander has about 300 pounds on Gates so honestly, we all know how this match is going to go.
Deadprez: Your math is a little off there but it’s Xander who forces Gates back into the corner. He nails Gates with a stiff right hand and follows it up with a nice corner clothesline! Gates slumps to the ground and Xander backs up… charging towards Gates! Xander goes for a running senton bomb but Gates moves and Xander crashes into the corner!
Gavin Kirkland: I just felt the Earth shake!
Eve: That’s definitely a lie but Gates quickly grabs Xander and pulls him into the center of the ring! He drops an elbow across Xander’s chest and goes for a quick cover!
Deadprez: Kickout at one!
Eve: Gates quickly pulls Xander up, but Xander rakes him across the face and whips him across the ring! Xander attempts to catch Gates with a clothesline, but Gates ducks! Gates hits the ropes and leaps into the air… taking Xander down with a crossbody! He hooks both legs for the cover!!!
Gavin Kirkland: KICKOUT!!!
Deadprez: Gates goes back to work and he locks Xander in a modified sleeper hold. Xander immediately looks to pry Gates’ arms apart, but Gates brings him down to the mat, forcing the shoulders down! Xander quickly uses his strength advantage to turn over, forcing himself up to his knees, and Gates replies with several punches to the side of the head! Somehow both men fight their way back up to their feet and they temporarily break apart. Both competitors are circling one another and they quickly engage in another collar-and-elbow tie up!
Gavin Kirkland: You know what? I would love to grab Angela, throw her across this table, and fuck her in the ass right now.
Eve & Deadprez: 😐
Gavin Kirkland: We’re just gunna ignore the fact she’s brunette. Dat ass :noah:
Eve: ANYWAY! Neither man is able to gain the advantage and they break apart. Gates is running his mouth, but Xander seems to be keeping his cool. Shane hauls off and slaps Xander right in the kisser and drives his knee up into Xander’s gut!
Gavin Kirkland: Holy shit! Xander’s stomach nearly swallowed Shane’s knee!!!!!
Eve: Shane raining clubbing blows down on the back of Xander, dropping the two-time champion to his knees. Gates backs up and hits the ropes, running back towards Xander and hitting him right in the face with a huge dropkick! Gates grabs Xander up and whips him into the ropes… SPINEBUSTER! XANDER IS DOWN!
Deadprez: Gates is screaming at Xander to get up and finally The Paynekiller staggers back up to his feet! Gates with a superkick! The spinebuster into a superkick combo is a signature move of Shane’s that he likes to call ‘Kill Shot!’ He’s going for the cover now! Will the ‘Kill Shot’ be enough??
Gavin Kirkland: XANDER GETS THAT SLAB OF BEEF HE CALLS A SHOULDER OFF THE MAT!!!!
Deadprez: Gates is back to his feet now and he’s helping Xander up as well. He nails him with a few right hands to the face, but look! Xander just blocked the last shot and he headbutts Gates! Gates stumbles back and Xander with another headbutt!! Xander now with a European uppercut that catches Gates right in the jaw! Xander forces Gates back against the ropes and unloads a massive knife-edge chop to the chest of Shane Gates! Xander unloads another one! He’s absolutely lighting up Gates right now! Xander grabs Gates… REVERSE JUDO STYLE TAKEDOWN!
Eve: GATES IS ON HIS KNEES! :damn:!!! KNEE STRIKE! SHANE GATES JUST ATE AN ABSOLUTELY DEVASTATING KNEE STRIKE TO THE FACE!
Gavin Kirkland: Xander is quickly behind Gates and he hooks the arms! Xander deadlifts Gates up in a full nelson and he slams him down into the mat! Xander rushes the ropes and comes rushing back towards the fallen Shane Gates…. SOMERSAULT LEGDROP ACROSS THE THROAT OF GATES! I THINK THAT TREE TRUNK LEG CRUSHED GATES WINDPIPE! XANDER THROWING HIS BIG OLE BODY ACROSS GATES NOW FOR THE COVER!
Eve: GATES KICKS OUT!
Gavin Kirkland: THAT WAS AN ACT OF GAWD IF I HAVE EVER SEEN ONE!
Gavin Kirkland: Xander quickly pulls Gates back to his feet and unloads a right hand! Xander with another! Xander going for a third straight punch to the jaw, but Gates blocks! Gates throws his own right hand, but Xander blocks that shot! Xander with a massive chop to the chest that sends Gates into the corner! Xander Payne looking like an agitated elephant comes barreling towards Gates and he looks to hit him with a splash!
Eve: GATES MOVES! XANDER SLAMS INTO THE CORNER AND GATES ROLLS XANDER UP FROM BEHIND!
Deadprez: Xander kicks out and is quickly back up! He whirls around and Gates catches him with a spinning heel kick! Xander falls to the mat and Gates grabs him and he pulls him up into the powerbomb position!
Gavin Kirkland: Shane Gates must have the strength of sixteen men right now because he literally just picked up a beached whale and powerbombed him into the mat! AND LOOK! HE’S HOLDING ON TO THE THING AND PICKING HIM BACK UP! SHANE GATES POWERBOMBS FREE WILLY INTO THE MAT AGAIN AND SEA WORLD’S BIGGEST ATTRACTION IS ABOUT TO GET PINNED BY THE JAPANESE WRESTLING LEGEND SHANE GATES!!!!
Eve: XANDER KICKS OUT!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: I THOUGHT GATES HAD HIM!!!
Deadprez: Shane Gates looks really frustrated right now and he’s slow to get back to his feet! Angela is encouraging him to stay on Xan-
Gavin Kirkland: She can come sit and stay on me :mjlit:
Deadprez: ? Gates starts putting the boots to Xander! Xander quickly rolls to the outside and drops down to the mat. That was a smart, smart move by Xander because he was in trouble. Gates has been on fire these last couple of minutes.
Eve: I don’t think Shane Gates is in any mood to wait, though! He’s outside of the ring now and he’s stalking Xander! Xander is back up to his feet, but here comes Gates! Gates running around the ring and he springs onto the ring steps! Gates flies off BUT XANDER JUST SUPERKICKED GATES OUT OF THE AIR! GATES SLAMS INTO THE RING STEPS AND JUST LIKE THAT XANDER HAS TURNED THE MATCH IN HIS FAVOR!
Gavin Kirkland: Xander runs towards Gates…. CANNONBALL SENTON TO GATES!
Eve: The back of Gates’ head just slammed into the ring steps and Xander grabs him by the hair and throws him into the ring! He slips back inside and pulls Gates up! Xander levels Gates with another series of punches and looks to whip him into the ropes! Somehow Gates is able to put the breaks on and he is able to reverse! Xander is sent into the ropes but Xander is able to hook his arms! Gates flies forward, but Xander catches him with an elbow! Gates is temporarily pushed back and Xander looks for the clothesline! Gates is able to duck and he grabs Xander from behind! GERMAN SUP-
Deadprez: NO! Xander with another elbow that catches Gates right in the temple! Xander reverses the German suplex, and he sends Shane crashing into the ropes with a release German suplex! Gates was already knocked around a bit earlier thanks to Xander’s use of the ring steps, and the back of Gates’ head slammed into the ropes just then. Xander grabs Gates by the legs and pulls him into the center of the ring, and now he’s going for the cover!
Eve: Kick out by Shane Gates!
Gavin Kirkland: Xander pulls Gates up and throws him into the corner! Gates slams back first into the turnbuckles and slumps down into a seated position. Xander walks over to him and looks to nail him in the face with a kick, but Gates catches the foot! Gates grabs the other leg and jerks Xander’s feet out from underneath of him! Gates mounts Xander and starts unloading rights and lefts! Gates is unleashing his aggressive side right now and he is certainly letting Xander know that he’s someone not to be taken lightly! Xander finally throws Gates off of him and rolls into the ropes. He hooks onto the bottom and Gates dives on him, throwing more punches! The referee has to step in because Xander is using the ropes!
Referee (Off Mic): Come on, Shane! Knock it off! ONE… TWO… THREE… FOUR…
Shane Gates (Off Mic): Fine.
Deadprez: Gates returns to his feet and he grabs Xander by the ankle, pulling him off the ropes! He grabs Xander’s ankle and twists it into a modified ankle lock! Xander is clawing at his hair right now! You can see how surprised he is that Shane Gates managed to get him into a submission! Gates transitions that ankle lock into a single leg crab! Xander is in excruciating pain right now and he’s having to dig deep, and fight with all he’s got! He uses his arms to push himself up and he reaches for the ropes! Xander Payne is slowly inching his way towards the ropes! Gates finally lets go, but he immediately goes to work on that leg by relentlessly stomping on that knee! Xander once again rolls towards the ropes, but Gates grabs Xander, and pulls him back into the center of the ring! Gates goes to gra-
Gavin Kirkland: XANDER GRABS GATES BY THE HAIR AND PULLS HIM DOWN INTO A ROLL UP!
Eve: NO! SHANE GATES KICKS OUT AT THE LAST POSSIBLE NANOSECOND AND XANDER LOOKS SURPRISED! GATES IS BACK TO HIS FEET AND HE IMMEDIATELY LOOKS FOR A PE- NO! XANDER ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY AND GETS BACK UP! HE’S HOBBLED BY THAT KNEE, BUT HE SOMEHOW STOPS GATES FROM TAKING HIM DOWN WITH A CLOTHESLINE! XANDER FIGHTS THROUGH THE PAIN IN HIS KNEE AND NAILS GATES IN THE GUT WITH A KICK! XANDER LIFTS GATES UP IN THE FIREMAN’S CARRY POSITION!
Deadprez: Xander’s knee just buckled though! Gates hits the ground and Xander is trying to shake that knee out! Xander goes back to work on Gates, but Gates clips him the injured knee! Xander crumbles to the mat and Gates immediately grabs the leg and slams Xander’s knee into the mat! Xander grabs that knee and Gates snatches him up by the hair! Gates pulls Xander into position for the Canadian Destroyer, but Xander is still fighting! I know Xander Payne will never win a popularity contest, but he’s an incredible competitor and a future world champion. Gates nails him with a clubbing blow to the back and he takes Xander down with the Canadian Destroyer!
Eve: Gates is back to his feet and he is heading for the ropes! Xander is laid out and Gates is about to follow up with a Frog Splash! Gates is on the turnbuckles now and he is about to take off for Dragon’s Flight!
Gavin Kirkland: XANDER GETS HIS KNEES UP!
Deadprez: I don’t know how wise that was considering the shape Xander’s knee is in at the moment, but he’s managed to stop Shane Gates’ momentum! That move might have been a bit desperate, but it was certainly needed, and now both men are down. Angela is beating on the mat and trying to encourage Gates to get up, while Xander has rolled towards the ropes and is pulling himself up. It’s Xander who makes it up to his feet first and he hobbles over to Gates! Gates is back up and both men meet in the center of the ring! Xander throws the first punch! Gates fires back! Xander with another right! Gates answers! XANDER! GATES! XANDER! GATES! XANDER! GATES! GATES! GATES! SHANE GATES WITH ONE MORE RIGHT HAND AND HE GRABS XANDER BY THE WAIST AND BRINGS HIM DOWN TO THE MAT WITH A SIDE SUPLEX! GATES WITH A SIDE HEADLOCK BUT XANDER IS ABLE TO SLIP OUT! XANDER RAKES GATES ACROSS THE FACE AND THAT ALLOWS HIM TO GET BACK TO HIS FEET!
Eve: XANDER GRABS GATES UP BY THE HAIR AND LOOKS TO THROW HIM INTO THE CORNER! GATES PLANTS HIS FEET BUT XANDER WITH THE DISCUS PALM STRIKE! BLOODY NOSE CONNECTS ON SHANE AND SHANE GATES IS DOWN! HE’S BLEEDING FROM THE NOSE NOW AND XANDER PULLS GATES UP AND INTO POSITION FOR THE PACKAGE PILEDRIVER! PAYNEKILLER! PAYNEKILLER!
Gavin Kirkland: NO! GATES MANAGED TO LAND A PUNCH TO THE SIDE OF THE INJURED KNEE! XANDER’S GRIP LOOSENS AND GATES SLIPS OUT AND NAILS XANDER IN THE FACE WITH A KNEE STRIKE! GATES ONCE AGAIN GOES FOR THE INJURED KNEE AND HE SNAPS XANDER DOWN TO THE MAT! GATES IS GOING FOR THE FIGURE FOUR, BUT XANDER USES HIS GOOD LEG AND BOOTS GATES IN THE BACKSIDE! GATES IS SENT INTO THE ROPES AND XANDER JERKS HIM DOWN AND ROLLS HIM UP FROM BEHIND!!!!
Deadprez: GATES. GOT. OUT!
Eve: BOTH MEN ARE BACK UP AND IT’S SHANE GATES WHO FLIES AT XANDER! XANDER DUCKS THE CLOTHESLINE AND HE GRABS GATES FROM BEHIND AND QUICKLY TURNS HIM AROUND! HE GETS HIM IN POSITION FOR THE PACKAGE PILEDRIVER AND ONCE AGAIN… SHANE LANDS A PUNCH TO THE SIDE OF THAT KNEE! XANDER’S LEG BUCKLES, BUT HE NAILS GATES IN THE BACK OF THE NECK WITH A HAMMERFIST! XANDER WITH THOSE HAMMERFISTS NOW! GATES IS IN TROUBLE! XANDER MAKES SURE HE HAS GATES FIRMLY IN POSITION NOW! PAYNEKILLER!
Gavin Kirkland: THE PAYNEKILLER CONNECTS WITH SHANE GATES AND XANDER FALLS ON TOP OF HIM FOR THE COVER!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
(“It Follows” by Cane Hill begins to blast across the public address system.)
Gina Romano: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… HERE IS YOUR WINNER… XANDER PAYNE!
(A hurt and exhausted Xander Payne rolls off Shane Gates and allows the referee to raise his hand. Angela has grabbed Shane and pulled him from the ring, and she is down on the ground, checking on her man.)
Eve: That was an amazing match! Shane Gates and Xander Payne gave this match their all, but it’s Xander who walks away the winner tonight.
Deadprez: Take nothing away from Shane Gates, though. He looked incredible tonight and with performances like that, he could very well end up becoming a major player here on Showdown for the remainder of the season.
Gavin Kirkland: Well he’s got a chance to prove himself at Reasonable Doubt as one of the participants in the Fatal Fourway contendership match for the Answers World Championship. Which means I get to stare at Angela at ringside, while gawking at Thicclow in the match. Life is good.
(SCREEN BAR — LAST WEEK.)
(After Showdown concluded, The ILLIONAIRES, Ahren Fournier and Chris Elite, soaked and drenched, look everywhere for Jenny Punk. They’ve checked her office, catering, VIP lounge, and anywhere that should be, but no luck. To say that the ILLIONAIRES are unhappy would be an understatement. After being thrown into the sea by Jamie O’Hara and Cameron Ella Ava, Ahren and Chris are embarrassed, wet, and want nothing more than to get their revenge on the married couple. Leaving a trail of puddles behind them, Ahren and Chris head towards the spa resort on the boat.)
Ahren Fournier: I feel horrible, Chris. Hopefully, a lovely trip to the spa will do the trick. Who knows what bacteria was in that sea? I could have some life-threatening disease now, and it’s thanks to Jamie O’Hara and that bih Cameron Ella Ava.
Chris Elite: FUCK,I think I’m getting a cold. That water was fucking cold. I think I may be getting hypothermia.
(The ILLIONAIRES make their way inside the spa resort.)
Ahren Fournier: I believe a friendly and warm feet soak is what you need to get your body back into its average temperature. I’ll probably be in the jacuzzi.
Chris Elite: WHERE THE FUCK HAVE YOU BEEN, JENNY?
(The camera goes to Jenny Punk laying in a facial treatment bed. Jenny has cucumbers in her eyes as she is in the middle of a European facial. She has a white robe on and is ignoring the world around her. Well, that’s until Chris Elite yelled for her. However, she doesn’t move a muscle. Both members of the ILLIONAIRES race towards her facial treatment bed.)
Ahren Fournier: Jenny, we’ve been looking all over for you! Did you see what happened to us out there?
Jenny Punk: No, what happened?
Chris Elite: Ight, I’ll tell you what happened. Jamie O’Hara and Cameron Ella Ava threw us into the fucking sea!
(Jenny Punk sits up, still has the cucumber in her eyes.)
Jenny Punk: Wait, did Jamie actually throw someone into the fucking sea?
Ahren Fournier: Yeah, he did. I didn’t think he would literally do that. :mjcry: I almost died out there, Jenny. Do you know that I can’t swim? I could have drowned to death out there.
Chris Elite: You can’t swim? :mjlol:
Ahren Fournier: You are rude to me, right now. I thought you were my friend, Chris. Look, Jenny; I’m sorry that you were busy getting a facial to realize what was going on.
Chris Elite: Pause.
Ahren Fournier: I didn’t mean it like that. You are so childish, Chris. The point is: Jamie and Cameron embarrassed us out there tonight. For the first time in a few weeks, they got the best out of us, and we can’t just sit around and be embarrassed. The show ended with those two WOATS getting the best out of us. We are the hottest duo at this moment. I mean, name a hotter pair than the ILLIONAIRES. We’ll wait right here.
(The room goes silent.)
Chris Elite: Exactly, Ahren! No one is hotter than the ILLIONAIRES! Cameron may be back to even the odds, but Ahren and I need to prove that it doesn’t matter which alliance steps in front of us, no one compares to Ahren and me. Jenny, we can’t just sit back and let those two get the last laugh. We need to do everything to knock them down. If we want to prove to Heavenly Hell why we’re the team to beat on Showdown, we need to defeat one of the most established duos in this company. A victory over them would be fantastic for the ILLIONAIRES, and I believe that Ahren and I can defeat them.
Ahren Fournier: Chris and I propose that at Reasonable Doubt, it’s The ILLIONAIRES versus Jamie O’Hara and Cameron Ella Ava.
(The crowd pops for the potential match at Reasonable Doubt.)
Jenny Punk: Are you sure you want Jamie and Cameron at Reasonable Doubt? Even though I believe you can defeat them, it’s just those two are no slouches. Those two could give you a run for their money.
Chris Elite: The ILLIONAIRES are better. This match will be proof that we made the right decision to turn on Jamie. Also, it will assure you that you made the right decision in investing your time and energy on us. You make this match, and we won’t disappoint you. We’re not going to let you down as Jamie did at Territorial Invasion. We’re not going to be disappointments like Jamie.
Jenny Punk: Alright, the match is official.
(The crowd explodes for the match being made official!)
Ahren Fournier: We always knew that you would make a smart decision, Jennifer. We promise not to let you down.
Jenny Punk: You better not. Now excuse me, I would love to continue with my spa trip.
(Jenny Punk lays down on the facial treatment bed. The ILLIONAIRES disappear from the camera shot. It transitions back to ringside.)
(‘War’ by Dance With The Dead blares as Santo Muerte comes out to a loud chorus of boos.)
Gina Romano: THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SET FOR ONE FALL AND IS CONTESTED UNDER PURE RULES! INTRODUCING FIRST…FROM DEATH VALLEY, CALIFORNIA….WEIGHING IN AT TWO HUNDRED POUNDS…”THE SAINT OF DEATH”….SSAANNTTOOO MMUUEERRRTTEE!!!!
Deadprez: And here’s a man who has been making a name for himself since joining several months ago. Just a man with nothing but malice in his heart. And what an opportunity for him tonight against the PURE Champion. A win tonight most likely put him in the front of the line for a PURE Championship opportunity.
Gavin Kirkland: He better damn well make El Ray proud.
(“Here We Go” by Sleeping With Sirens plays but Jake Smith doesn’t come out. After a few seconds Sierra Bradford walks out holding a bazooka in her hands.)
Deadprez: I think we all know what this represents.
(Sierra Bradford shoots off the bazooka blasting sparks all over the arena. As she’s doing this, Jake Smith walks out from the curtain behind her wearing the PURE Championship around his waist. He stands next to Sierra as sparks are raining down on them and Jake Smith points to the sky before starting to walk down the ramp.)
Gina Romano: AND HIS OPPONENT….FROM VENICE, CALIFORNIA…WEIGHING IN AT TWO HUNDRED AND TEN POUNDS….HE IS THE REIGNING PURE CHAMPION…..”THE MIGHTIEST ONE”…….JJJJAAAKKKEE SSSMMIITTTH!!!!
Eve: :wow: Jake and SIerra with a touching tribute to Brody Sparks here tonight! That is what Brody would do is some of her entrances.
Deadprez: Brody was pure, and so is this man as he is our PURE Champion. Since being traded from Dynasty, he’s been flourishing including finally putting an end to Mark’s stranglehold on the PURE Championship. He’s looking for a big win tonight against a rising star here on Showdown.
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Deadprez: And we’re off! Again this is contested under PURE Rules. Each competitor gets three rope breaks to save themselves from a pinfall or submission. No closed fist punches are allowed. If you’re caught throwing one you get a warning, the second time you get penalized a rope break, and a third time you get disqualified.
Eve: Both men now holding their arm out trying to test one another’s strength. And now Jake hits a kick to the midsection of Santo and now Jake runs to the ropes and RUNS RIGHT INTO A CLOSED RIGHT HAND PUNCH FROM SANTO! WHAT IS HE DOING?!
(The referee steps in front of Santo aggressively warning him about the closed fist punches.)
Santo Muerte: (No mic): No mercy.
Deadprez: And now Santo moves the ref out of the way and walks to Jake in the corner and throws an elbow to Jake’s face. Santo now has Jake cornered and Santo throws a shoulder thrust to the midsection of Jake! And he does it again! Santo now irish whips Jake to the opposite corner but Jake reverses it and throws Santo but Santo catches himself and springboards off the second turnbuckle and hits a crossbody to an unsuspecting Jake Smith! Santo not wasting any time here as he waits for Jake to rise to his feet and kicks Jake in the midsection and hooks his arm looking for Death Note but Jake manages to slips out of it and avoid catastrophy early and hits a high running knee that sends Santo through the middle rope to the outside floor!
Gavin Kirkland: Jake Smith sees Santo stirring on the outside and now Jake Smiths ends himself flying…CROSSBODY! BUT NO….SANTO SAW IT COMING AND THROWS A KICK TO JAKE’S CHEST WHILE HE WAS IN MID AIR! DID YOU HEAR THAT?! Jake now is holding his chest in pain as Santo picks him up right away and tosses him back first into the barricade behind them! Santo sends Jake back in the ring but Santo stays on the outside and climbs up the top turnbuckle. He stands and waits for Jake ti turn around…HURRICANRANA FROM SANTO! Santo sends Jake flying to the other side of the ring and Jake is back up quickly in the corner and before Jake can even blink Santo comes flying with a head of steam and hits a running dropkick to the face of Jake! Jake now stumbles to the center of the ring and is on one knee. Santo senses victory here as he approaches Jake….JAKE WITH THE SMALL PACKAGE!!
Eve: Santo escapes it! Jake almost pulled a fast one there and both men are up and hit a double clothesline on one another! Both men are stirring to their feet here and both men are in the center of the ring and Santo seems to have recovered quicker as he throws a back sides elbow strike to Jake and now Santo uses this and runs to the ropes and runs right into a spinebuster from Jake! Jake doesn’t go for the cover though as he slides away from Santo’s body. Jake pulls himself up with the ropes and walks up to the downed Santo and he grabs Santo by the head but Santo slaps Jake’s hands away from his head and throws a headbutt at Jake! :damn: and Santo once again runs to the ropes and goes for the slingblade! JAKE CAUGHT HIM IN MID AIR AND TURNS IT INTO A BACK SUPLEX!
Deadprez: Jake is holding his head from that headbutt he just received as he’s rising to his feet. He places Santo now between his legs but Santo drives Jake backward into the corner! Santo now throwing uppercuts to the jaw of Jake! SANTO NOW PLACES JAKE ON THE TOP ROPE AND GOES UP WITH HIM! HE’S SETTING UP FOR WHAT LOOKS LIKE A SUPERPLEX BUT JAKE IS BLOCKING IT WITH ALL HIS WILL! JAKE MANAGES TO PUSH SANTO OFF THE TOP ROPE FREEING HIMSELF! JAKE IS TAKING HIS TIME TO SET UP FOR SOMETHING HERE ON THE TOP ROPE….AND HOLY SHIT SANTO LIKE A BAT OUT OF HELL GETS UP AND RUNS UP THE ROPES AND CONNECTS WITH A BELLY TO BACK SUPLEX ON JAKE! HE COVERS!
Eve: JAKE GETS HIS SHOULDER UP! Santo now takes a second to think of what to do next and he gets up and with quickness rises Jake to his feet and lifts him on his shoulders but Jake manages to slip out and now faces Santo’s backside and hits a superkick right to the back of Santo’s head! JAKE NOW TAKES THIS OPPORTUNITY AND RUNS TO THE ROPES AND CONNECTS WITH A RUNNING FOREARM! SANTO IS UP RIGHT AWAY ALMOST AND JAKE IS READY! PALAYZER!! THE SPINEBUSTER CONNECTS BEAUTIFULLY! JAKE COVERS SANTO!
Gavin Kirkland: SANTO STILL STAYS IN IT! JAKE NOW GRABS SANTO BY THE HEAD BUT SANTO IS THROWING RIGHTS TO THE STOMACH OF JAKE WHILE HE’S ON ONE KNEE! SANTO NOW THROWS A HARD UPPERCUT TO JAKE WHO’S TOWERING ABOVE HIM! SANTO NOW IS STANDING AND HITS A ROUNDHOUSE KICK TO JAKE! JAKE IS ON WOBBLY LEGS HERE AS SANTO TAKES A FEW STEPS BACK…HE CHARGES AT JAKE…BUT JAKE COUNTERS AND SANTO RUNS RIGHT INTO A SUPERKICK! JAKE STILL AIN’T COVERING BECAUSE HE’S STILL HOLDING HIS HEAD! HIS HEAD HAS BEEN THROUGH QUITE A LOT OF PAIN IN THIS MATCH!
Deadprez: JAKE NOW IS TO HIS FEET AND LOOKS AT THE TOP ROPE! HE’S GOING UP HIGH! JAKE IS BALANCING HIMSELF ON THE ROPE ROPE…BLUE VENGEANCE!! THE MOONSAULT! BUT NOBODY HOME!! JAKE CRASHED AND BURNED AND NOW SANTO TAKES THIS CHANCE AND LOCKS IN THE ARMBAR! SANTO IS PULLING THAT ARM! JAKE MAY HAVE NO OTHER CHOICE BUT TO SUBMIT HERE! BUT JAKE FLIPS SANTO OVER AND REVERSES THE PRESSURE AND MANAGES TO GET HIS RIGHT FOOT ON THE BOTTOM ROPE FORCING A BREAK! THIS IS JAKE SMITH’S FIRST ROPE BREAK OUT OF THREE IN THIS CONTEST!
Eve: SANTO LETS GO AND DOESN’T WASTE ANY TIME GOING AFTER THE VULNERABLE JAKE SMITH BUT JAKE THROWS HIS RIGHT FOOT AT SANTO’S MIDSECTION STOPPING SANTO IN HIS TRACKS! JAKE RUNS AT SANTO BUT SANTO THROWS A KNEE TO THE FACE OF JAKE! SANTO IMMEDIATELY SETS UP FOR THE FINALE BREATHE!! THE PACKAGE PILEDRIVER….AND JAKE IN MID AIR REVERSES IT INTO A ARM DRAG! BOTH MEN ARE UP SANTO RUNS INTO ANTOHER SUPERKICK FROM JAKE! JAKE NOW….RIDE TO HELL!!! BUT SANTO TWISTS OUT OF IT AND THROWS ANOTHER VICIOUS HEADBUTT AT JAKE! SANTO RUNS TO THE ROPES AND CONNECTS WITH THE SLINGBLADE!! SANTO HAS THIS THING WON HERE!! HE’S WAITING NOW FOR JAKE TO RISE TO HIS FE- WAIT…WHAT IN THE HELL?!?!
Deadprez: MARK MICHAELS!! MARK MICHAELS ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING GRABS SANTO’S FEET INSIDE AND DRAGS HIM OUT! MARK THROWS SANTO SHOULDER FIRST INTO THE BARRICADE! WHY THE HELL IS MARK DOING HERE?!??!?! HE’S NOT ALLOWED TO BE IN THE ARENA!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Eve: SANTO HAS WON BY DISQUALIFICATION BUT WHAT’S THIS?! MARK NOW IN THE RING AND HE JUMPS ON JAKE THROWING HARD LEFTS AND RIGHTS REPEATEDLY! JAKE IS TRYING TO COVER UP! MARK THEN EVENTUALLY STANDS UP!
Mark Michaels: (No mic): I’M THE RIGHTFUL PURE CHAMPION YOU SIDEKICK PIECE OF SHIT! I’M COMING FOR YOU AND I’M TAKING MY CHAMPIONSHIP BACK! I DON’T GIVE A SHIT IF YOU, THE FANS, OR EAW LIKE IT OR NOT!
Eve: AND WOAH SANTO TURNS MARK AROUND AND BEGINS POUNDING AT MARK’S FACE! SANTO FEELS MARK JUST ROBBED HIM OF A HUGE MOMENT PINNING THE PURE CHAMPION! ROUNDHOUSE KICK TO MARK!! JAKE IS BACK TO HIS FEET AND HITS AN ELBOW TO THE BACK OF SANTO’S HEAD CAUSING SANTO TO FALL TO A KNEE! JAKE TAKES THIS TIME TO GO AFTER MARK AND BOTH OF THEM ARE THROWING PUNCHES AT EACH OTHER!
(Security runs in as the crowd boos very heavily.)
Gavin Kirkland: AND SECURITY IS TRYING WITH ALL THEIR WILL TO HOLD THESE MEN BACK! ONE OFFICER IS PLEADING WITH SANTO TO JUST LET IT GO AND SANTO WITH ONE QUICK MOTION THROWS A SECURITY GUARD DOWN AND GRABS HIS ARM….THE OFFERING!! THE GROUNDED INVERTED ARMBREAKER! I THINK SANTO MAY HAVE BROKE THAT MAN’S ARM!
Eve: THAT CAUSED MORE SECURITY KEEPING JAKE AND MARK APART TO GO TAME SANTO! AND JAKE AND MARK ARE THROWING ELBOWS AT SECURITY TRYING TO GET FREE AND JAKE JUMPS AT MARK AND BOTH MEN ARE THROWING PUNCHES AT EACH OTHER AGAIN! AND NOW SANTO BREAKS FREE FROM THE OTHER SIDE OF THE RING AND LEAPS ON BOTH OF THEM CAUSING THEM TO ALL CRASH TO THE GROUND! THEY ARE ALL JUST HAMMERING ON ONE ANOTHER HERE!
(A lot more security comes out and they successfully keep them all back with about fifteen security guards holding each man back. The ring is filled to capacity.)
Deadprez: MY GOD! WHAT FUCKING MADNESS! THESE GUARDS ARE STILL HAVING AVERY TOUGH TIME HOLDING THESE MEN BACK FROM TEARING EACH OTHER APART!
Crowd: LET THEM FIGHT!!!
???: THAT’S ENOUGH!
(The crowd’s booing becomes louder at the sight of the Showdown General Manager, Jenny Punk. Jenny has a microphone in her possession as she looks like she is in no mood from the bullshit. Jake Smith, Mark Michaels and Santo Muerte look at Jenny from different parts of ringside, still being held back by security.)
Jenny Punk: I’m not in the mood for any of this tonight. Are you proud of yourself, Mark?
(Mark Michaels is shaking his head, feeling proud of himself.)
Jenny Punk: I’m not surprised that you were going to pull something like this off, Mark. I’m strict when I stated that I don’t do the rematch thing on Showdown. I live by that claim. You’re not getting a rematch clause unless you earn it, Mark —
Jake Smith (off-mic to Jenny Punk): — Give me Mark again so I can shut his bitch ass up! I’ll put this title in the line if I have too! I’m not scared of him! I defeated him once and I’ll do it again!
Jenny Punk: You see Jake; Santo Muerte won the match via disqualification. This match was strictly pure rules and if the title would have been on the line, Santo would be standing here a PURE Champion. It would be thanks to Mark’s actions that you would have lost the championship. If you want Mark Michaels so bad, then at Reasonable Doubt, Jake Smith will defend his PURE Championship against Mark Michaels…
(The crowd cheers.)
Jenny Punk: … and Santo Muerte!
(The crowd cheers louder due to the addition of Santo Muerte in the PURE Championship Match at Reasonable Doubt. Santo Muerte’s interest has peaked as the three competitors competing for the PURE Championship look at each other.)
Gavin Kirkland: Has there ever been a triple threat match for the PURE Championship? Triple threat matches are normally No Disqualification, so how does that work with pure rules?
Eve: I don’t know, but I’m hoping some rules get established within the next week. But, this is a giant announcement from Jenny Punk!
Deadprez: This is a huge title defense for Jake Smith! I’m not sure if I’m liking his odds at the moment.
(Commercial break featuring House of Glass next Saturday on the EAW Network!)
(Showdown returns from commercial break. “Born Too Late” by Saint Vitus begins to play through the speakers of the Amway Center. The crowd gives an explosive reception as Showdown’s newest signee and former Answers World Champion makes his way from backstage. At the sight of Darkane, the crowd’s response gets louder. Darkane has an emotionless expression on his face. It’s difficult to understand how he’s feeling at the moment. A lot has happened within the last month to Darkane from being pinned at War Games to being unsuccessful in his quest to become World Heavyweight Champion to getting traded to Showdown.)
Deadprez: There were many rumors about who got traded for the Visual Prophet. I think this answers the question, Gavin and Eve!
Eve: It doesn’t seem like Darkane is in a happy mood! Things haven’t gone his way as of late, so it looks like he is going to be taking his frustration on the closest thing he can get his hands on. :lupe:
Gina Romano: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… PLEASE WELCOME TO SHOWDOWN… “THE GRAVE WORM”…DAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRKKKKKKAAAAAANNNNNNNNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: I’m not sure if the trade for the Visual Prophet for Darkane was a good one, guys? We just traded a future World Champion and Hall of Famer for Darkane?!?!? Don’t get me wrong, Darkane is excellent, but he is no Visual Prophet! What did Jenny Punk think when she made this trade? Does she not realize the potential harm that she could be giving Mr. DEDEDE? I don’t believe that Darkane has resolved his issues against Mr. DEDEDE at all! He put them to the side for a while, but this could be a perfect opportunity to resume that rivalry.
Deadprez: Does Darkane want to be Answers World Champion? Would Darkane be in contention? Let’s not forget that he didn’t win at Battle of Egypt.
Eve: Well, Impact stopped the match. Darkane left ringside, believing that the match was never going to restart. :lupe:
(By the time the camera pans inside the ring, Darkane is already in the ring. He snatches the microphone from Gina Romano, who quickly gets the hell out of the ring out of fear of her safety. “Born Too Late” dies down as the crowd maintains that reception that they gave Darkane when he came out.)
Darkane: Let’s cut the shit. I’m not going to give you some sappy bullshit speech about being “happy” to be back on Showdown. I’m not too crazy about being on Showdown again. On Dynasty, we had a bare minimum champion who would have done enough to keep himself in the mix. Anything more than that was going to cost him extra. We had a fragile whore who was never entirely happy with anything unless she is the center of attention. We have a sensitive cunt who is trying to prove to the world that he is not a disappointment and can get the job done when it counts. But, it seems like things are not going well with him. I walk into the Showdown locker room, and it looks like I never left Dynasty. You have more accomplished versions of Impact, Kassidy Heart, and TLA, and these cunts don’t even realize it. You have men and women with such sensitive egos that we might as well take bets on who will be the first to break. If I had any money, I would bet on Jamie O’Hara because it seems like his bitch made him a bigger bitch than he was before. At least with Impact and Mr. DEDEDE, they never let a bitch change them. Don’t expect me to be on Showdown and try to massage the shattered egos of every man and woman here. That’s never been my thing. If I don’t like you, I won’t be afraid to look you dead in the eye and say that to your face. There are not many men and women in this locker room that I like or respect. It seems like Showdown is going to be in for a massive problem for the rest of the season. Everyone’s wondering what’s next for Darkane?
Darkane: Reasonable Doubt is in two weeks, and do you think that I am going to get left off the card? An FPV without Darkane sounds like a snoozefest, and it would be best not to go down that horrid path. Unlike those bitches from Heavenly Hell, I am not going to stand here and bitch about not getting any opponent on a silver platter. “Boo-hoo! Jenny Punk doesn’t give us any respect!” Motherfucker, I don’t give a flying fuck if Jenny Punk respects me or hates me. I don’t expect her to be excited to have me on her roster. I see Jenny Punk like every woman placed in front of me. Nothing more than objects to fuck and toss them to the side after I’m through with them. As I said, I’m not going to stand here and bitch about the fact that I’m not on the card. I’m not going to stand and wait for Jenny Punk throw me a bone while losers like Ryan Wilson and Shaker Jones have matches for a shot at the Answers World Championship. I’m not going to throw myself into any championship matches. I’m going to do the champions a favor by not going after their championships and putting a stop to their miserable reigns. Instead, I am going to do what Mark Michaels did for Battle of Egypt; however, I am going to make sure to win my match. I am going to throw out the challenge for anyone to face me at Reasonable Doubt. If there is anyone who is game enough to try to knock me out, I would love to know. I dare for anyone to come marching down that ramp and accept my challenge. Come on! Don’t be pussies —
(Darkane is cut off by “It Follows” by Cane Hill blasting through the background. The crowd roars in confusion. Darkane is caught off by surprise as Xander Payne comes out from the back. Xander is still in a high after his victory over Shane Gates.)
Deadprez: It seems like Xander Payne has answered Darkane’s challenge! I’m surprised about this turn of events!
Gavin Kirkland: Xander Payne is asking for a death sentence. This moment is probably the dumbest thing that he has done in his career, and he’s done plenty of stupid things.
Eve: I’m curious to see what Xander Payne’s thought process is at the moment.
(Xander Payne is with a microphone in his possession. “It Follows” fades as Xander is pacing, thinking about what he wants to say before responding. Darkane looks at Xander with almost an amused look on his face.)
Darkane: Hey guys, it’s the 2018 Best Body Award Winner!
(The crowd gives a mixed reception as Xander Payne gives a forced grin to Darkane, almost taking everything in his power not to knock Darkane out. Darkane is trying to bring the humor into this situation. It’s a bit obvious that Darkane doesn’t see Xander as anyone to take seriously.)
Xander Payne: Wow, gee, Darkane has jokes. The jokes are garbage, but it’s the effort that counts.
Darkane: I’m glad you think that, but it’s not as garbage as your entire EAW run.
Xander Payne: I think that pissing me off should be the last thing that you should be doing, Darkane. You can’t step into my show and expect things to work the same it did on Dynasty. This brand isn’t Dynasty. You’re not going to scare me, Darkane. Do you know who I am? I am the same man who rid this company of my former overrated and overhyped partner, Myles. Last week, I dominated Sonny Saxton that I’m not surprised if he’s joined Myles in the unemployment line. I defeated Shane Gates earlier tonight and contributed to his downfall on this brand. I promised Shane earlier this week that when we faced each other, I would beat the living shit out of him. I hope that I did Shane a favor, and he realizes the truth. Shane, just like Myles, is nothing more than a pathetic loser who was never going to get a victory over someone of my caliber. Darkane, I am here to help you out and realize that you are nothing compared to me. You are no longer the intimidating force of this company. I have taken your spot as the daunting force of this company. I’m stronger, hungrier, and better looking than you. I am willing to bring something new to the table. I have more determination and fire in my eyes than you do. I have struggled for someone to bring something new to the table. I’ve heard the jokes about my weight. I’ve had people tell me about how Myles carried me in The Wildcards, but I proved that I was the stronger member of The Wildcards at Territorial Invasion.
Xander Payne: I am a man who desires a cold-blooded war. I want a battle that is going to pressure me into doing my best. These days, I feel bored with the competition. My talents are getting underutilized, and I need to put a stop to that. I was hoping that Jenny Punk was going to select my name from the lottery machine. If there is anyone that can give Mr. DEDEDE a run for his money, it’s me. I’m not afraid of Mr. DEDEDE. I’m not scared of going into battle against Gawd. I’m not scared of that joke Jake Smith either, but I don’t desire to go after his championship — at least, not yet. When you laid out the challenge, Darkane, I had to accept it. There’s more of a satisfaction with taking out EAW’s resident edgelord. To be the man that eliminated Myles from this company can only get me so far, but to eradicate Darkane from Elite Answers Wrestling? It will make everyone in that locker room turn their eyes at what I am capable of doing. It will be a reminder that I can deliver in high stake matches. Everyone saw my battle with Noah Reigner last season at Tempest; people saw me dismantle Myles at Territorial Invasion. People shouldn’t be shocked by my talents in the ring. They shouldn’t be shocked that I’m accepting your challenge, Darkane. You have no idea what you are getting yourself into. I am beyond any opponent that you’ve faced. I am better than any man and woman you’ve encountered. At Reasonable Doubt, I send you to the same retirement home that I sent Myles in. I am going to knock the fuck out of you so hard that you’ll think you’re back on Dynasty.
(Xander Payne and Darkane staredown against each other. The crowd is building an anticipating of these two clashing. Darkane raises the microphone towards his lips. A smirk creeps up his face.)
Darkane: We’ll see about that.
(A thump gets heard as Darkane drops the microphone. “Born Too Late” plays back up once again as Darkane still sports that smirk on his face before exiting the ring. Xander Payne has a cold and severe stare that can’t break, looking back at his opponent at Reasonable Doubt.)
Gavin Kirkland: ANOTHER MATCH FOR REASONABLE DOUBT GETS MADE! DARKANE VERSUS XANDER PAYNE!
Deadprez: This looks like a fantastic card! This match is one that can steal the show!
Eve: Reasonable Doubt needs to get here sooner!
(The camera pans back to the arena where Gina Romano is standing by with a microphone in hand.)
(“My Way” by Limp Bizkit echoes throughout the arena, barely audible over the chorus of boos from the crowd. Ryan Wilson pauses at the top of the ramp, gleefully taking in the negative reaction, stirring fans up along the aisle as he heads for the ring)
Gina Romano: The following contest is scheduled for one fall! Introducing FIRST! Montreal, Quebec, Canada! Weighing in at two hundred and twelve pounds! HE IS THE AGENT OF CHAOS!……..RYAN WIIIIIIIILLLLLLLLLLSSSSSSSSSSOOOOOOOONNNNNNNNN!!!
Gavin Kirkland: Insufferable is a word that many have used to describe me. I don’t think that’s fair but it’s certainly fair to use it to describe Ryan Wilson.
Deadprez: Brash and unapologetic in his comments but he’s in prime position to become the number one contender to the EAW Answers World Championship. But he first must get through a Fatal 4 Way that won’t prove to be the easy challenge he may be anticipating.
(“Castle” by Halsey plays as Harlow Reichert walks out onto the set to a mixed reaction, learning towards cheers before walking down to the ring)
Gina Romano: And his opponent! From Christchurch, New Zealand! Weighing in at one hundred and fifty five pounds! SHE IS “MISS NO FUCKS GIVEN”!………..HARLOW REEEEEIIIIICCCCCHHHHHHEEEEEEERRRRRRRRTTTTTTTTTT!!!!!!!!
Deadprez: On a night like tonight, where we remember Brody Sparks and the incredible contributions she made to this company, for female Elitists to come, It’s incredible to see how the women on our rosters have been elevated to the peak. She dared to push boundaries, dared to step over what people had always tried to pigeonhole women into, and it’s talent of today like Harlow Reichert who carry the shoes further, continue to carve out the path she carved herself.
Eve: Well said and absolutely. We could be looking at the next number one contender! Harlow has been a tremendous standout all season long and this is just her pushing her career forward in the only direction it should be going!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Eve: The opportunity that exists for these two competitors is huge. It can’t be understated just how big the opportunity to even BE in a World Championship match is. Both competitors will have their chance at Reasonable Doubt and tonight could lead to some great bragging rights.
Gavin Kirkland: Just imagine for someone like Ryan who has spent so long trying to break out as a star in this company!
Deadprez: And he’s certainly keen to get a victory over Harlow here tonight, already racing out of his corner to meet her in the center of the ring! Harlow steps into the middle but Ryan immediately swoops in! Repeatedly firing precision left and rights, targeting each and every exposed point he can! Harlow backs up into the ropes but Ryan continues to fire off!
Eve: He has to watch himself to avoid getting disqualified!
Gavin Kirkland: And he does just that, backing away from the corner– HARLOW ROCKS RYAN WILSON WITH A STIFF FOREARM TO THE JAW! Ryan stumbles back away from the corner but Harlow steps back out, throwing him back into the corner and begins to light up the chest with rapid fire knife edge chops! Already turning his pale chest red raw with the skin beginning to spinter!
Deadprez: Each chop taking more and more breath away from the lungs of Ryan Wilson and we’re still very early into this contest! The referee forces their way in between, forcing Harlow to back away for a moment. You can see clear frustration already mounting on the face of Ryan Wilson who thought he had the immediate jump on his opponent here tonight!
Eve: He certainly can’t allow his mind to drift away from the task before him! Harlow taunts Ryan back to the center of the ring but Ryan shows a bit of caution, opting to follow the ropes, keeping a bit of distance between himself and the quite confident Harlow Reichert.
Gavin Kirkland: Just imagine, a confident Ryan Wilson with a victory over Harlow heading into the Fatal 4 Way match? :noah:
Deadprez: I’m sure that’s a nightmare for many fans. Ryan though back in the ring, offering a test of strength but has the height and weight advantage over Harlow who doesn’t budge. Ryan picks up the pace as he continues to circle the ring before stepping into the middle but Harlow has it well scounted. She steps to the side and floats around straight into the sleeper! But Ryan drops to the canvas and rolls Harlow through for a pin!
Eve: Harlow kicks out with ease and shoots right back to her feet as does Ryan. Both competitors race back towards the center of the ring but this time it’s Harlow rolling Ryan up in a pin!
Gavin Kirkland: And Ryan kicks out with ease! Again, both competitors race to their feet but Harlow with a tick quicker in her pace and immediately wraps the arms around the waist of Ryan Wilson and hurls him up and over her head! Letting gravity do the rest of the work with the release belly to belly suplex! Ryan immediately rolls out of the ring trying to catch a breath but Harlow is quick to respond, stepping out onto the apron. Ryan turns– PENALTY KICK ON THE APRON! Stripping the air right from the lungs of her opponent and that chest of Ryan Wilson…boy oh boy, it’s going to sting in the morning!
Ref: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR!
Deadprez: Harlow pulls Ryan back to his feet on the outside but Ryan stubbornly refuses, firing back with an elbow to the mid section! Harlow’s grip loosens and Ryan capitalises by driving Harlow back into the ringpost! Spine colliding directly on the harsh steel before immediately driving Harlow straight into the ringside barricade!
Ref: FIVE! SIX! SEVEN!
Deadprez: Referee’s count at seven and now Ryan rolls Harlow back inside the ring, quickly sliding into the cover!
Ref: ONE! TWO!
Eve: Kickout from Harlow Reichert! Ryan protesting the call of two. Can’t waste any time in this contest, Ryan realises that and rises to his feet before driving the boot right to the mid section! Harlow immediately rolling over, clutching her ribs but exposing her back and Ryan takes full advantage with a swift kick right to the spine! The arrogance of Ryan Wilson overflowing at the moment as he picks apart Harlow who can’t quite seem to be able to get back into this contest! Ryan drags Harlow to her feet and locks her in– Swinging neckbreaker! Ryan driving Harlow back to the canvas and again he rolls into the cover!
Ref: ONE! TWO! TH–
Gavin Kirkland: Harlow kicks out once again and this time Ryan drives his fists into the canvas in frustration at his inability to put Harlow away! Once more Ryan drags Harlow back to her feet but this time Harlow pops up and drives a forearm right to the upper chest, almost connecting right on the throat! Close enough of a shot to cause Ryan to stumble back onto the ropes, coughing as Harlow stumbles, one hand placed firmly on the side. Both competitors slowing right down for a brief moment; Ryan steps forward off the ropes and fires back with closed fist! But Harlow fires back with another forearm shot right back to the chest. Ryan responds with another closed fist! Harlow responds but this time Ryan dips to a knee before shooting back to his feet, floating behind Harlow straight into a headlock– INVERTED HEADLOCK BACKBREAKER! Harlow’s back being across Ryan’s own body.
Deadprez: And Harlow wisely rolls away to the corner, close to the ropes and away from Ryan who quickly looked to get the pin. Desperation might be lingering on his mind; you only have to imagine just how important this match and the Fatal 4 Way is for him. But the fight and determination of Harlow forcing her to refuse to stay down, she drags herself back to her feet as Ryan comes charging in. But Harlow steps out of the way and Ryan collides chest first into the corner turnbuckle! Ryan comes stumbling out of the corner and Harlow jets off for the ropes. She comes charging back and takes Ryan down with the Leaping Lariat!
Eve: But both competitors are down! The wind and more importantly the momentum being taken right out from behind Ryan Wilson and Harlow Reichert having endured a decent beating. No quit in either though, both slowly rising to a vertical base using the other as a support; this match worth so much, cannot allow it to slip through their grasp! Ryan swings for a punch — BUT HARLOW ROLLS HIM UP INSTEAD!
Gavin Kirkland: KICKOUT FROM RYAN–
Deadprez: SUPERKICK! Harlow jolts back to her feet and delivers a swift superkick straight to the jaw! But Ryan doesn’t collapse back to the ring. Whether it’s adrenaline pumping through his veins or stubbornness, he staggers back to his feet but staggers straight towards Harlow! Harlow pulls him in and hoists him up in the air– AS I LAY DYING! BRAINBUSTER STRAIGHT DOWN AND ONTO THE KNEE! RYAN WILSON’S BODY COLLAPSES ON THE CANVAS IN A HEAP!
Eve: AND HARLOW ISN’T WASTING ANY TIME! SHE’S MAKING HER WAY OVER TO THE CORNER. SHE PULLS HERSELF RIGHT UP TO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE! WUTHERING HEIGHTS!!!!!! THE CORKSCREW SHOOTING STAR PRESS!!!!! HARLOW REICHERT COMES CRASHING DOWN ON RYAN WILSON AND SHE LAYS THERE, SLUMPED OVER RYAN FOR THE PIN!
Ref: ONE! TWO! THREE!!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“Castle” by Halsey plays as Harlow Reichert rises to her feet with a big grin across her face. She stands in the middle of the ring celebrating as Ryan Wilson stirs on the canvas, slowly rising to a knee)
Gina Romano: HERE IS YOUR WINNER…. HARLOW REICH–
Deadprez: WAIT A SECOND! RYAN WILSON JUST BLASTED HIS FIST RIGHT ACROSS THE BACK OF HARLOW’S HEAD! NOW THE VICIOUS ASSAULT BEGINS. STIFF RIGHT FISTS BEING HAILED DOWN OVER AND OVER AGAIN; THE REFEREE TRYING TO INJECT THEMSELVES IN BETWEEN THE TWO BUT RYAN IS RELENTLESS.
Gavin Kirkland: YOU LOST THE DAMN MATCH. HOLD YOUR L AND MOVE ON.
(The official manages to pry Ryan off Harlow. Ryan turns and soaks in the negative reaction from the crowd.)
Eve: I don’t think he gives a damn what people think, guys. He couldn’t win the match but I think he believes he’s sending a message much, much bigger than any victory tonight could have sent.
Deadprez: AND HE’S NOT DONE EITHER. RYAN PUSHES THE OFFICIAL OUT OF THE WAY AND DRAGS HARLOW BACK TO HER FEET! HE PULLS HER IN AND LIFTS HER UP IN THE SMALL PACKAGE POSITION– MIC DROP!!!! THE SMALL PACKAGE PILEDRIVER DRIVING HARLOW’S SKULL RIGHT INTO THE CANVAS WITHOUT AN INCH OF MERCY!
Gavin Kirkland: I think you’re right Eve! Ryan Wilson might have just told Harlow and the other two competitors that come the Fatal 4 Way, the man isn’t messing around; he’s heading into Reasonable Doubt and he’s looking for the kill, for the chance to make his career!
(The camera pans to Ryan slowly walking up backwards, proudly admiring his work. In the ring, the official helps Harlow get back to her feet while she uses the ropes to keep herself up before fading to black)
( Showdown opens back up to the ring, where “Monster” by Skillet plays over the sound system. HRDO is standing in the ring accompanied by CFO Andy Dominguez, Principal owner/EAW Board head spokesperson John Conning, SVP of Talent Relations Sarah Vaughn, and Showdown General Manager Jenny Punk. “Monster” eventually dies down, leaving HRDO to take the floor. )
HRDO: Good evening. I stand here today along with some of my colleagues, ALL serving as representatives to the EAW Board of Directors. The Chief Financial Officer, Andy Dominguez, Principal owner within Elite Answers Wrestling and Head Spokesperson to the EAW Board of Directors, John Conning. Senior Vice President of Talent Relations, Sarah Vaughn. And active General Manager to Saturday Night Showdown, Jenny Punk. We represent different “branches of government”, so to speak, and are here on behalf of their interests to bring forth a public resolution to a very public controversy. For those who aren’t aware of the story or have yet to be clued in for whatever reason, let’s take a look.
( HRDO turns his attention to the titantron. )
( RECAP: We are brought back to the closing events of Supershow: Battle of Egypt, at the end of Mr. DEDEDE’s victorious bout against Charlie Marr. DEDEDE is seen celebrating until he is attacked by someone in a diamond-studded mask. The assailant attacks DEDEDE with a running spear before it takes the mask off revealing it to be Amber Keys. Amber continues her attack on DEDEDE as the crowd is stunned over Amber violated the rules of laying a hand on someone of the opposite gender. The recap ends with members of the Egyptian National Army escorting Amber out of the arena. Amber has a huge smug on her face, not giving a damn about breaking a law. )
( Focus returns to the ring, where the EAW board members have looks of discontentment on their faces. The crowd, however, gives a majority positive reaction to the replay. )
HRDO: As many of you may know, as a result of Amber Keys’ actions at Battle of Egypt, EAW’s relationship with the Stage of Egypt, the EFL, and all other subsidiaries has been severely strained. We aren’t anywhere near reaching a new agreement, and odds are we won’t even host so much as a weekly show there let alone a major supershow event.
Andy Dominguez: If I can add to that as well HRDO. To follow suit, all of EAW’s weekly programming has been effectively pulled from Egyptian television airwaves; costing us access to over 30 million homes. Not to mention costing us our biggest consumer market in the entire African continent, when you account for merchandise revenue and whatnot.
HRDO: Precisely, Fan. We can sit here all day and discuss the ramifications for what Amber Keys did, but she’s made it very clear that this is something she’d prefer to air out publicly. Which is not how we’d all prefer to handle something like this, but at this point, who gives a damn. We’re willing to oblige you Amber. So let’s cut right to the chase and why don’t you come on out, so that we can air this out exactly the way you intended.
( HRDO spoke that last line with a sternness in his voice. Before long, “All It Takes For Your Dreams to Come True” by A Skylit Drive plays and Amber Keys walks out in the similar, form-fitting tactical attire that she wore at Battle of Egypt. She approaches the ring with a very serious expression on her face, knowing she is entering the proverbial lion’s den. Once in the ring, she ‘kindly’ requests a microphone to be handed to her – and HRDO orders a stagehand to do so. Her music dies down, and Amber stands across from the EAW Board members with a quizzical look about her. )
Amber Keys: A few notable characters missing here, don’t you think Ollie?
HRDO: DDD’s not going to be here, which is for your benefit as much as anybody’s. But as his representative I will make his sentiments about tonight clear. You are on trial, Amber. You are subject to everything between a slap on the wrist and full blown litigation – which some members of the EAW Board of Directors are actually pushing for – to recompense for your actions.
Amber Keys: So let me get this straight, I’m “on trial” for something that I did live and in living color, and owned up to doing the very next week on national television. This was Ryan’s big idea? This is how he brings the hammer down on me? Juvenile kiddy games? What’s next are you supposed to come out here with a wig and a gavel? Shouldn’t there be a bailiff to transport me to and from the ring? Get real, Oliver. You already know that Ryan not only finds me guilty, but he probably already has my proverbial death sentence written out and graphically depicted. I know the motherfucker hates my guts because-
Sarah Vaughn: (talking over Amber) Excuse me. Excuse me.
Amber Keys: I’m sorry, who the fuck are you, bitch?
Sarah Vaughn: My name is Sarah Vaughn. Senior Vice President of Talent Relations.
Amber Keys: And why have I never seen you before?
Sarah Vaughn: Because for the most part – the only time an EAW Elitist ever has to see me, is to either tell them they’re hired, or they’re fired. 🙂
( Amber chuckles. )
HRDO: Which is a VERY real possibility, Amber. It is a VERY good chance that you may not walk out of this ring tonight without a job.
( The crowd gives a major split reaction. )
Sarah Vaughn: And I’m not your ‘bitch’, as a matter of fact I may end up being your best friend. I have fought tooth and nail for many EAW Elitists to be given second chances and keep their jobs, whenever money grubbing sharks like the ones in Finance (looking over at Andy) or the fickle, douchebag shareholders (looking over at John Conning) or the corrupt, aloof nincompoops I preside over in the talent relations and managerial offices (looking over at Jenny). But I can only fight for you people so much, until my hand is forced and I’m given no other choice but to divvy out consequences. What you need to understand, Amber, is that it’s not all about you. Your actions have consequences that affect many others. What you did took food off of the plate, and money out of the pocket of other Elitists.
Amber Keys: Blood oil money.
Andy Dominguez: But still money. These events were incredibly lucrative, some of our earlier Pain for Prides weren’t generating as much in revenue as each of the planned events in Egypt contributed in sheer profit. The billed upcoming programs, “Battle of Egypt: Clash In Cairo” and “Battle of Egypt: Burning Alexandria” were set to be broadcast prime time on NBC. We were also generous enough to distribute major paydays for talent competing on these shows.
Amber Keys: And I wouldn’t have seen a dime.
Andy Dominguez: You don’t know that.
Amber Keys: Wow, you’re as clueless now as you were 12 years ago when you were the AWF Chairman. No wonder why the company all but died under your watch.
Amber Keys: As a matter of fact you would have killed the business entirely if Ronn didn’t reestablish EAW as a solo company and bring you back along for the ride. I’ll give the man his due, he knew how to utilize the talent signed to him properly and run a company like a well oiled machine. It’s amazing how snobby you assholes get when that little ivory tower you sit comfortably in was built by someone else.
Jenny Punk: Well it’s too bad Ronn isn’t here now, isn’t it? Because we all know you would have ended up fucking him.
( Amber snaps her attention over to Jenny, with a look that could kill. )
Jenny Punk: You would be fucking him, and fucking your way to relevancy. Again.
Amber Keys: Coming from the bitch who amounted to nothing more than the wart on Mak’s ball sack, you should be the last one talking Jennita. I’m sorry but who the fuck invited you out here again? The adults in the room are speaking.
Jenny Punk: I’m your boss.
Amber Keys: Please. You’re a jumpoff with a job. Always have been, always will be.
Jenny Punk: Fuck you Amber. You know Sarah Vaughn is right, you think it’s all about you, and you really always have. That’s why you’re always so pissed off. For the last 10 years of your life you’ve been mad at the world because it doesn’t revolve around you. You could have spent your twenties flourishing, instead you’ve spent them being bitter and resentful. And now you think you can take it out on EAW and Ryan Adams but it just doesn’t fucking work that way. You’re still on my roster, and do you want to know the first person that feels the heat for anything the Showdown roster does? Me. That’s the job of being General Manager, being a punching bag for a bunch of ingrates who don’t appreciate it. “Why didn’t you stop her Jenny?” “Why weren’t you proactive like you should have been?” “Your roster doesn’t respect EAW because they don’t respect you.” I had to hear bullshit like that because of you.
But they don’t know you like I know you Amber. You and I were best fucking friends, we did everything together. We hit the long roads, promoted our events, made the connections and carried AWF’s banner together. I did just as much for this business as your selfish ass, and you don’t see me this jaded. Even when my career fizzled out, even when I was traded in for the new golden girl at the time Sabina, I moved on with my life. I’m happy and appreciative to be here-
Amber Keys: And that’s why you will never know what it’s like to be me. That right there. You could have become a legend and not some ghost of the past, you could have become immortalized by this place like Sabina, Kendra Shamez and Hoe Break Gal. The reason why you didn’t is because you got complacent. That’s why you fell off the face of the earth. The same story does not apply to me. My career didn’t “fizzle out”, it was STOMPED OUT. I wasn’t forgotten about, I was BLACKBALLED. BIG DAMNED DIFFERENCE. And the fact you would spew out that revisionist history crap only proves to me that you were never really my best friend in the first place.
I was blackballed by Ryan Adams, and despite the credit I give to Ronn Banks, he was complicit. (looking at HRDO) So were you. (looking at Andy) So were you. (looking at John Conning) So were you. Everybody who was there and sat on their hands as I got dragged through the mud and locked out, slandered, denied opportunities, had my fucking character defamed. You motherfuckers allowed this! You took food from my table! And I can tell by that blank look from your beady little eyes, and the disdain on your judgmental faces, that you don’t care. None of you care. And that’s fine! You don’t have to give a fuck… because that would make two of us.
Amber Keys: No YOU listen. You’re the ones bringing me out here to answer for what I did right? Why don’t you answer something for once? You and Ryan ran Dynasty and Showdown respectively when EAW re-opened in the beginning of 08. It’s obvious why Ryan didn’t sign me to Showdown, but what about you huh? You didn’t mind employing jackasses like MVM and CIC, or sellouts like Jaywalker. This company didn’t mind rolling out the red carpet for double agents like King Kjors, you know the guy who EAW wiped completely from its history? Who threw the EAW Championship in the fucking trash can? Why did all of them get an opportunity but not me, can you answer that?
( HRDO doesn’t respond. )
Amber Keys: That’s what I thought. The reason why is obvious, it’s because you were all too chickenshit to deviate from the Dirti Diva hate train. You had the face of your Vixens division, a first ballot Hall of Famer and a bonafide legend sitting on the sidelines because of a bunch of fragile male egos. This company always had a vendetta against me, and I’m not going to bother repeating myself because I laid out every single way this place wronged me at every turn in my interview last week. I may have cost this place a lot of money, but this place cost me and itself a whole hell of a lot more money – to spite me even while spiteing themselves. Amber Keys knows her fucking worth.
John Conning: OK, I’ve heard enough. That’s enough of the Alex Jones conspiracy nonsense for one afternoon, alright? Dear God.
Amber Keys: John Conning! Nice of you to pull your head out of Ryan’s ass to finally join us.
John Conning: Listen sweetheart, you may think you know your worth, but so do the shareholders and investors of this company. The people who keep this place functional, not to mention profitable. We have multi millionaires and billionaires watching this who don’t have time to hear you moan and complain about what happened twelve years ago. They want answers, and many of them want you to answer for what you’ve done.
( Amber rolls her eyes. )
John Conning: Look our investors and shareholders are willing to tolerate a lot. You can thank these men right here, HRDO and Andy, and you can also thank your ex boyfriend for that. This board and our affiliates have allowed everything from intergender violence, to hardcore matches, to commentators swearing like sailors on nationally syndicated broadcasts. Not to mention the revolving door of middle management who seem to get hired and fired like clockwork. They’ve endured everything from company walkouts to company merges under the expectation of one thing – that this place answers to liabilities. You have proven that you are a financial liability to all of us Amber, and they’re not going to be willing to let that go until you make it up to them…. with a public apology.
( The crowd gives a mostly negative mixed reaction. )
Amber Keys: An apology? :skip:
John Conning: That’s what they’re asking for. It’s two simple words Amber, but they’re two very powerful words. An apology has gotten companies out of oil spills, health crises and all kinds of controversies. Issue an apology, to the board of directors and to the good people over at the State of Egypt.
( Amber Keys scoffs, rubs on her temples and shakes her head in disbelief. She then takes a second to compose herself, with the gears clearly turning in her head as she attempts to process John Conning’s request. )
Amber Keys: Alright, I’m a grown woman I know how to take accountability for my actions. Fine, I’ll do it. I’ll apologize. But why don’t you come over here so I can do this the right way and apologize face to face.
( John Conning nods and walks over to Amber Keys. The tall businessman towers over Amber, and he speaks a few words to her off-mic before extending his hand. Amber Keys shakes his hand and looks him in his eyes. )
Amber Keys: John, I apologize. I’m sorry.
( John Conning nods his head, and Sarah Vaughn makes a remark to Andy Dominguez while HRDO and Jenny look on. HRDO and Jenny, being former pro wrestlers, have an inkling of where ‘apologies’ usually go in pro wrestling and brace themselves for the worst. )
Amber Keys: I’m sorry.
( Conning pulls away, only for Amber to latch on and tighten her grip. )
Amber Keys: I’m sorry… that the board are a bunch of spineless, gutless, sorry sacks of shit in corporate suits. I’m sorry that you’re the most pathetic, cowardly sack of shit among all of them. But the board can all go fuck themselves, the State of Egypt can all go fuck themselves, and you can go fuck yourself.
Gavin Kirkland: NUT SHOT!!!! AMBER KEYS HITS JOHN CONNING RIGHT IN THE BALLS, IS THIS BITCH CRAZY?!
Deadprez: AMBER SENDS CONNING CRASHING INTO SARAH VAUGHN!!! BRUH, SHE JUST ATTACKED THE SENIOR VICE PRESIDENT OF TALENT RELATIONS, AND A PRINCIPAL OWNER OF THE COMPANY!
Gavin Kirkland: JENNY TURNS AMBER AROUND! JENNY WITH A BITCH SLAP ACROSS THE FACE! AMBER EATS THAT WITH A SMILE, AND BANGS HER OWN HEAD ACROSS JENNY’S SKULL WITH A HEADBUTT!!! AMBER MOUNTS OVER JENNY PUNK AND BEGINS TEEING OFF WITH A FLURRY OF PUNCHES!
( While HRDO is busy tending to Sarah Vaughn and John Conning, Andy Dominguez rips Amber Keys off of Jenny, allowing Jenny to roll out of the ring. Amber breaks free from Andy’s grasp. )
Deadprez: SUCIAKICK!!! SUPERKICK CRACKING AGAINST ANDY’S JAW! THAT TURNED ANDY INSIDE OUT, HE SCRAMBLES BACK UP! AMBER ALERT!!!!!!! AMBER KEYS DRILLS THROUGH HIM WITH A SPEAR!!!
Gavin Kirkland: HRDO TURNS AMBER AROUND! SLAPS THE CLAW AROUND THE THROAT!!!! CHOKESLAM!!!!!! CHOKESLAM BY HRDO!!!!!
Deadprez: NOT SO FAST! AMBER JUMPS AWAY AT THE LAST SECOND, AND BAILS THROUGH THE ROPES TO THE OUTSIDE! Amber Keys backs away up the ramp with a look of sheer excitement, while HRDO rips off has blazer and is challenging Amber to get back into the ring for more! My God I haven’t seen HRDO this pissed off in years!
( Officials rush to the ring to come to the aid of Vaughn, Conning and Dominguez. Andy Dominguez is on the ground favoring his ribs, but refuses to accept medical attention. An irritated HRDO is in the ring pacing around, and Amber Keys looks on from the ramp appearing to be proud of what she did. )
Gavin Kirkland: This crazy broad might have just signed her own death warrant HRDO! She put her hands on EAW officials! Two of them aren’t even signed as active wrestlers! That’s no different from going out on the street and assaulting somebody, although the implications and ramifications behind what Amber just did are likely going to be far more grave!
Deadprez: More and more I get the feeling that Battle of Egypt really was the biggest mistake that Amber Keys has made in her professional life. But tonight is probably a close second. It really doesn’t get any worse of a situation for her, whether she’s enjoying herself or otherwise. She has to realize how bleak her situation is right now, doesn’t she?
Gavin Kirkland: I don’t know Prez, considering the kind of sick bastard we have for a Chairman, I think you’re wrong on that one. Not only do I think it CAN get worse, but it WILL get worse. She has no idea what’s coming for her.
( Amber is on the stage, dusting her hands off and talking heaps of trash at the board members in the ring who are all recovering from the assault. )
(“Starboy” by The Weeknd plays through the Amway Center as the crowd gives a negative reception to Ahren Fournier. Ahren is dressed in his ring gear, he has his trademark fur coat and shades on. Accompanying him to the ring is his ILLIONAIRES partner, Chris Elite and his lovely cat, Jennipurr. Chris is hyping up Ahren as Ahren is covering Jennipurr’s ears from all the boos.)
Gina Romano: THE FOLLOWING MATCH IS SCHEDULED FOR ONE FALL —
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!!!!
Gina Romano: INTRODUCING FIRST…BEING ACCOMPANIED TO THE RING BY CHRIS ELITE…REPRESENTING THE ILLIONAIRES…FROM PAWTUCKET, RHODE ISLAND…WEIGHING IN 210 POUNDS… HE IS “THE GOAT”…AHHHHHHRRRRREEEEEEENNNNNNNNNNNNNNN FOOOOOUUURRRRRRRNNNNNIIIEEEEEEEERRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: This is Ahren Fournier’s first match in about three weeks. Word on the street was that he was handling a bit of stress. During his time, Ahren took a bunch of trips to the spa, spent time with Jennipurr and realize missed being in a wrestling ring.
Eve: Did he really say that?
Gavin Kirkland: Nah, he enjoyed his time away from the ring and was dreading making his return! There was rumor going around with Jenny Punk begging for Ahren to compete this week! She was more than willing to give him the main event spot!
Deadprez: The ILLIONAIRES have been a thrown on Jamie O’Hara’s side for a few weeks! The two of them have gotten the upper hand on The Ace, but that all changed last week with the return of Cameron Ella Ava! The ILLIONAIRES felt embarrassed about what the married couple did to them last week and it was announced that at Reasonable Doubt, The ILLIONAIRES will face Jamie O’Hara and Cameron Ella Ava in a tag team match! Tonight, is a bit of preview to what we could see in two weeks!
(By the time the camera pans to the ring, Ahren Fournier is already inside the ring. Ahren hands Jennipurr to Chris Elite, telling him to be extra careful to Jennipurr and to not place her in scary situations. “Starboy” dies down before “ULTRAnumb” by Blue Stahli replaces it! The crowd gives an explosive ovation as Cameron Ella Ava comes out in her blue ring attire. Cameron is wearing a Brody Sparks t-shirt as she does her signature pose. Next to her is Jamie O’Hara as he’s trying to talk some advice to her going into this match.)
Gina Romano: INTRODUCING HIS OPPONENT…BEING ACCOMPANIED TO THE RING BY JAMIE O’HARA…FROM LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA…SHE IS “THE GODDESS”…CAAAAAAAMMMMMEEEEEERRRRRRRRROOOOOOOOOOOONNNNNN ELLLLLLLLLLLLAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAVVVVVAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!
Eve: This is Cameron Ella Ava’s first match in about a month! She was back at home recovering from a mild strain on her right arm! Cameron received that injury from Kassidy Heart at Territorial Invasion. Cameron was told by doctors that it would take four to six weeks to recover. Jamie O’Hara had told Cameron to use the full six weeks to recover, but Cameron couldn’t really stand there and do nothing at all. Cameron returned at four weeks, but I’m not sure if that was a good idea.
Gavin Kirkland: Cameron Ella Ava seems to be in great shape and I don’t think that arm will be a factor in this match, but she couldn’t have returned at a better time than last week. Jamie was going to succumb to an assault for a third week in a row, but thank god Cameron is back to have my baby boy Jamie’s back. Someone that he can trust. :wow:
Deadprez: Unlike Ahren, it seems like Cameron is more than excited to get back inside the ring. A win for Cameron Ella Ava would be like a win for Jamie O’Hara! It will give them a win going into Reasonable Doubt in two weeks!
Eve: Like it’s been said, The ILLIONAIRES were embarrassed by Jamie and Cameron throwing them overboard last week’s cruise ship show! There’s no way that they are going to let themselves be embarrassed once again!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Deadprez: These two didn’t have much to say to each other, but it doesn’t make this match less interesting at all! It’s made me more excited to see these two talented Elitists clash! Cameron Ella Ava and Ahren Fournier are circling around each other! The two of them are looking for the perfect opening to go for the usual lock up! Cameron and Ahren lock up!
Eve: Ahren Fournier manages get Cameron Ella Ava into a headlock! Ahren is wrenching in the headlock as he looking towards Jamie O’Hara’s way! I don’t Jamie is nervous about how his wife will do in this match! I think he has faith that she’ll get herself in that situation!
Gavin Kirkland: An intelligent husband Jamie O’Hara is. :wow: There’s no need to get himself involved so soon into this match up! Cameron Ella Ava manages to use some of her strength to push Ahren Fournier towards the horizontal set of ropes! Ahren maintains grasp of that headlock, but Ahren drops to one knee, bring The Goddess down to him as well! Ahren gets in front of Cameron before applying a front headlock on her! We’re seeing some wondering mat wrestling by the former EAW Champion!
Deadprez: Cameron Ella Ava manages to shove Ahren Fournier as he rebounds off the ropes! Ahren goes right after her — PROTECT YA NECK — CLOTHESLINE FROM HELL! CAMERON MANAGES TO DUCK BEFORE SPRING BOARDING OFF THE ROPES AND CONNECTING WITH A SPRINGBOARD ROUNDHOUSE KICK, BUT AHREN DUCKS THE MOVE AS CAMERON MANAGES TO LAND ON HER KNEES! AHREN RACES TOWARDS CAMERON BEFORE KNEE STRIKE TO HER FACE! CAMERON MANAGES TO DUCK THE KNEE STRIKE AS AHREN STUMBLES PAST HER! CAMERON MANAGES TO GET AHREN BY ONE OF HIS LEGS BEFORE SWEEPING HIM AS HE CRASHES ONTO HIS BACK! CAMERON BEGINS TO PUNCH THE LIVING HELL OUT OF THE GOAT!
Gavin Kirkland: Ahren Fournier is trying to block these punches from his beautiful face! It pains me to see beautiful people trying to beat the shit out of each other. :mjcry:
Eve: Cameron Ella Ava manages to get Ahren Fournier back to his feet by that ugly man bun of his before using it to connect with a snapmare! Cameron rebounds herself off the ropes in front of Ahren before connecting with a sliding forearm that takes one-half of The ILLIONAIRES down! Cameron is up to a vertical base as she’s gesturing for Ahren to get back to his feet! Ahren rises back to his feet as Cameron races towards Ahren — Wonder Woman Punch! Running forearm smash!
Gavin Kirkland: Ahren Fournier pops back to life as he manages to catch The Goddess with a reverse STO! The GOAT with the first pin fall attempt in this match! Looking to end this as early as he can!
Deadprez: Cameron Ella Ava manages to kick out at one! Ahren Fournier manages to get Cameron up to a seated position before cranking the neck of the Hall of Famer! Ahren tilts Cameron’s head to the side as it adds more pressure to the neck! If Cameron doesn’t have neck problems now, she may after this match is over! The Goddess finds herself in a bit of a pickle at the moment!
(Jamie O’Hara tries to rally Cameron Ella Ava back into this match. Jamie begins to hit his hands against the canvas in a rhythmic fashion as the fans do the same thing instantly.)
Gavin Kirkland: The EAW Universe are rallied for Cameron Ella Ava in this match! Cameron is trying to use the energy of the fans to pick herself up! Ahren Fournier looks a tad concerned about Cameron getting the energy to take control of the match! Cameron is using her elbow to elbow Ahren in the chest! But Ahren gets a fistful of Cameron’s hair before slamming her against the mat! Ahren Fournier has his hands up with confidence oozing on his face! Chris Elite is clapping and hyping up his partner as Jamie O’Hara is shaking his head in disapproval. Cameron is holding the back of her head as Ahren goes over to pull his opponent back to his feet! He gets Cameron by her right arm before whipping her to the corner! Ahren takes a few steps back before charging towards The Goddess! Running uppercut by Ahren!
Eve: Cameron Ella Ava eats an uppercut! Cameron stumbles forward as Ahren Fournier gets Cameron and connects with a hip toss! Cameron drops into a seated position before Ahren follows that up with a superkick to the back of Cameron’s head! Cameron tilts forward as Ahren jumps in front of Cameron before connecting with a superkick to Cameron’s face, making her fall to her back in the process! AHREN IS UP TO HIS FEET RIGHT AWAY AS HE’S GESTURING FOR THE HALL OF FAMER TO GET TO HER FEET! AHREN RUNS TOWARDS CAMERON — CALL TO ARMS! CROSS ARMBREAKER ON CAMERON ELLA AVA! CAMERON IS IN TROUBLE AS AHREN GETS A GOOD GRASP OF CAMERON’S FINGERS!
Deadprez: GET FUCKED TO CAMERON ELLA AVA!!!!! AHREN FOURNIER JUST BROKE THE FINGERS OF THE GODDESS!!! I THINK JAMIE O’HARA JUST CRINGED AT THE SOUND OF CAMERON’S FINGERS BREAKING!! AT THE SAME TIME, HE RELEASES CALL TO ARMS AS CAMERON GRASPS ONTO HER BROKEN FINGERS!
(As Cameron Ella Ava is dealing with her “broken” fingers, Ahren Fournier goes over to The ILLIONAIRES corner and pets Jennipurr, who is being held by Chris Elite.)
Gavin Kirkland: People like to talk about the bond between Ahren Fournier and Chris Elite, but let’s not forget about between Ahren and his beautiful cat, Jennipurr. Ahren. Can’t find himself too occupied with his pet in this match! He still needs to finish this match —
Eve: — CAMERON ELLA AVA ROLLS UP AHREN FOURNIER!!!!! UPSET VICTORY HERE!!!!
Referee: OOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!
Deadprez: AHREN FOURNIER MANAGES TO ROLL HIMSELF OUT OF THE ROLL UP, BUT CAMERON ELLA AVA CONNECTS WITH A CHOP BLOCK TO THE BACK OF AHREN’S LEG! AHREN FALLS TO HIS KNEES AS CAMERON GETS AHREN BY HIS LEG! CAMERON WITH THE AVA LOCK!!! CAMERON ELLA AVA HAS THE AVA LOCK ON AHREN FOURNIER!!! THE MODIFIED INVERTED STF ON THE FORMER EAW CHAMPION! AHREN IS TRAPPED!!!! AHREN IS TRAPPED!!!
(Before Ahren Fournier could even consider, Chris Elite slides underneath the bottom rope and grabs Ahren by his arm. Chris pulls Ahren out of the ring, which pisses off the crowd.)
Gavin Kirkland: Chris Elite rescues his partner from that troubling situation! That’s the beauty of The ILLIONAIRES! They always look out for one another! Cameron Ella Ava is demanding for Ahren Fournier to get back into the ring and continue this match! It can be debated on whether Cameron had Ahren Fournier in position to submit, but it seems like we’ll never know the answer to that one! Cameron takes a few steps back before running towards the rope and flipping herself out of the ring —tope con hilo on Ahren Fournier! AT THE SAME TIME, SHE MANAGES TO KNOCK DOWN CHRIS ELITE! THE BELOVED JENNIPURR MANAGES TO SCURRY AWAY BEFORE CAMERON COULD SQUISH HER AS WELL! CAMERON IS HYPING THE SHOWDOWN CROWD UP AS THEY APPLAUD THE GODDESS FOR THAT AMAZING MOVE!
(Jamie O’Hara points and applauds his wife because he’s nothing more than a bae, who worships the ground she walks on. Cameron Ella Ava delivers a playful bow to the EAW Universe.)
Eve: It seems like the two of them are showboating and I don’t mind that at all! Cameron Ella Ava resumes her focus back into the match as she picks up Ahren Fournier from the collision before getting him by the arm and whipping him towards the edge of the apron! Cameron takes a step back before connecting with a monkey flip as Ahren goes flipping into a seated position! AHREN LANDS SOMEWHERE NEAR THE BARRICADE AS CAMERON STANDS ON THE BARRICADE IN FRONT OF AHREN! AHREN BEGINS TO RISE BACK TO HIS FEET AS CAMERON ELLA AVA DELIVERS A SPRINGBOARD ROUNDHOUSE KICK ON THE FORMER EAW CHAMPION! AHREN FALLS TO HIS BACK AS CAMERON LANDS ON HER KNEES! Cameron gets Ahren before rolling him back into the ring! Cameron slides underneath the bottom rope shortly after! Cameron is up to her feet again as she rebounds off the ropes and delivers a leg drop to the chest of Ahren Fournier! Cameron with the cover!
Referee: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!!!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!
Deadprez: Ahren Fournier kicks out at two! Cameron Ella Ava applies an inverted chinlock on The GOAT! Cameron is very limited on the moves that she can do in this match! Ahren weights more than her, but I don’t think that anyone should deny Cameron’s strength! She has been able to pull out moves that you wouldn’t think that she would be capable of doing! Cameron transitions that inverted chinlock before pulling Ahren closer and connecting with a sleeperhold! CAMERON APPLIES A BODY SCISSORS ON AHREN AS SHE APPLIES THE SLEEPERHOLD! I DON’T THINK THAT SHE’LL MAKE AHREN SUBMIT HERE, BUT I THINK SHE’LL WEAKEN HIM BEFORE HITTING HIM WITH ONE OF HER FINISHERS! HOWEVER, BY THE LOOKS OF THINGS, IT SEEMS LIKE AHREN IS GOING TO TRY TO GET OUT OF THIS SUBMISSION HOLD! HE IS ABLE TO ROLL HIMSELF INTO A CRAWLING POSITION, BUT CAMERON IS NOT LETTING GO AT ALL! AHREN IS USING SOME OF HIS STRENGTH TO GET BACK TO A VERTICAL BASE, BUT CAMERON IS STILL CLINGING ONTO HIM LIKE SHE’S A MONKEY!
Gavin Kirkland: Ahren Fournier is back to his feet! He stumbles backwards onto the corner as Cameron Ella Ava’s back meets the turnbuckle! Instantly, Cameron releases the sleeper hold as Ahren takes a couple steps back! AHREN CHARGES TOWARDS CAMERON AT THE CORNER, BUT CAMERON STICKS HER FOOT OUT, STOPPING AHREN IN HIS TRACKS! CAMERON MANAGES TO KICK AHREN BACK A BIT BEFORE GETTING ON THE TOP TURNBUCKLE HERSELF! AHREN MANAGES TO TURN HIMSELF AROUND! CAMERON ELLA AVA FROM THE TOP TURNBUCKLE —
Eve: DRAGONRANA BY THE GODDESS!! SHE ROLLS UP AHREN FOURNIER IN THE PROCESS!!! SHE MAY GET THE VICTORY HERE!!!
Referee: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! THR—
Deadprez: NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! Ahren Fournier kicks out! Cameron Ella Ava managed to catch him with the move, but it was not enough to put Ahren away! Cameron smacks her hands against the mat in a bit of frustration, but she can’t let it get the best of her! If she does that, there’s no way that Ahren passes up the opportunity to exploit that emotion! Cameron is up to her feet as Ahren is back to his feet as well! Before Ahren can completely get back to a vertical base, Cameron knees The GOAT in the stomach before getting him by the arm and connecting with Irish whip towards the vertical ropes! Ahren rebounds off of them as Cameron connects with an axe handle! The axe handle knocks down Ahren, but he gets up instantly before Cameron connects with another axe handle! Cameron follows that with a sharp kick to Ahren’s stomach as he clutches is stomach in response! AHREN DROPS DOWN TO ONE KNEE BEFORE CAMERON ELLA AVA MAKES HER WAY TO THE TOP ROPE! IT SEEMS LIKE CAMERON IS GOING FOR GLASS CEILING! THE TOP ROPE STUNNER ON AHREN FOURNIER! THIS COULD BE THE BEGINNING OF THE END!
(Chris Elite slides on the apron and grabs Cameron by one of her ankles.)
Gavin Kirkland: Once again, Chris Elite comes to the rescue of his partner! Cameron Ella Ava’s attention has shifted from Ahren Fournier to Chris on the apron!
Eve: Jamie O’Hara gets Chris Elite by his ankle and pulls him off the apron! Chris Elite’s face is met with the edge of the apron! Jamie delivers some dangerous forearms to Chris’ face! He picks up Chris by his head before throwing him head first against the steel steps! I think we don’t have to worry about Chris for the time being!
Deadprez: Ahren Fournier gets on the top rope! Ahren with a forearm to Cameron Ella Ava’s face! Cameron was way too focused with the altercation between her husband and Chris Elite ringside that she didn’t see Ahren climbing up to the top rope! AHREN GETS CAMERON BY HER ARMS — THE CLIMAX — THE RIPCORD KNEE STRIKE ON THE HALL OF FAMER! AHREN GETS CAMERON IN POSITION! SUPERPLEX FROM THE TOP ROPE!!! BOTH ELITISTS GO CRASHING DOWN AS AHREN DRAPES AN ARM OVER CAMERON ELLA AVA!
Referee: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! THR—
Gavin Kirkland: CAMERON ELLA AVA KICK OUT!!!!!
Eve: AHREN FOURNIER IS PISSED OFF RIGHT NOW! HE’S LOOKING AT THE REFEREE AND TELLING HIM THAT IT WAS A THREE COUNT, BUT THE REFEREE INSIST THAT IT WAS A TWO COUNT! AHREN IS SMACKING HIS HAND THREE TIMES QUICKLY, TELLING THE REFEREE THAT HE SHOULD BE COUNTING LIKE THAT! AHREN TAKES HIS FOCUS OFF THE OFFICIAL AND BACK TO HIS OPPONENT! AHREN GRABS CAMERON BY THE FACE ROUGHLY!!
Ahren Fournier (off-mic): YOU SHOULDN’T HAVE INSERTED INTO OUR BUSINESS, CAMERON!!! YOU’RE NOTHING COMPARED TO ME!!! YOU’RE NOTHING COMPARED TO THE ILLIONAIRES!!! YOU’RE AS MUCH OF A DISAPPOINTMENT AS YOUR —
Deadprez: CAMERON ELLA AVA JUST SLAPPED THE SHIT OUT OF AHREN FOURNIER!!! This creates a bit of separation from the two Elitists! CAMERON CHARGES TOWARDS AHREN — WONDER WOMAN PUNCH TAKES OUT AHREN! CAMERON IS UP TO HER FEET AND IT LOOKS LIKE SHE’S GOING TO WRAP THIS MATCH UP! AHREN IS UP TO HIS KNEES AS CAMERON ELLA AVA RUNS TOWARDS HIM — GODDESS’ TOUCH!!!! Running Enziguri on the former EAW Champion! Cameron goes for the cover!!!!
(Ahren Fournier has his foot underneath the bottom rope.)
Referee: TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“ULTRAnumb” plays again as Cameron Ella Ava gets off of Ahren Fournier. Jamie O’Hara meets Cameron side the ring as he raises one of her hands up. The official raises Cameron’s other hand up.)
Gina Romano: THE WINNER OF THIS MATCH… CAAAAAAAAMMMMMMMEEEEEEEEERRRRRRRRROOOOOOOOONNNNNNNNNNN ELLLLLLLLLLLLLLLAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAVVVVVVAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: Cameron Ella Ava picks up the victory against Ahren Fournier! It seems like The Goddess did not miss a beat out there at all!
Deadprez: It seems like The ILLIONAIRES are not happy about the result whatsoever! They’re confronting the referee about Ahren Fournier’s foot being underneath the bottom rope! Ahren feels like he was robbed in this match! I felt like this match could have gone on for a couple more minutes. It could have been met with a different result!
(A replay of Cameron Ella Ava hitting the Wonder Woman Punch on Ahren Fournier is shown before she follows that up with the Goddess’ Touch. Cameron goes for the cover, but Ahren’s foot is seen underneath the bottom rope, but the official continues on with his count, not noticing the placement of Ahren’s foot.)
Eve: That can be debated, Deadprez, but Cameron Ella Ava walks away with a meaningful victory on Showdown!
(The ILLIONAIRES are still arguing with the official inside the ring. Meanwhile outside the ring, Cameron Ella Ava and Jamie O’Hara are watching the ILLIONAIRES argue and yell at the official with no success at all. Just seeing them go crazy is amusing to the married couple. Cameron kisses up to Brody Sparks in the heavens before looking towards a little girl in a Brody Sparks cosplay and embracing her. It fades to commercial break.)
(Showdown returns from its last commercial break with Kyra Phillips backstage. Kyra is dressed in a Brody Sparks kind of blue tight fitting dress with a smile on her face. She is standing behind a Showdown blue background before looking at the camera.)
Kyra Philips: Throughout the show, we have seen Elitists and the commentators refer to Brody Sparks on this emotional night. We hope that we were able to deliver an action-packed show why keeping the memory of Meagan Christine Vaughan, known to the EAW Universe as Brody Sparks. I hope that we made Brody proud with this show and that she’s looking down on us feeling proud. Can’t you believe it? It’s been two years and the Spark still remains. It will remain for many years to come. Despite being in this world for a small period of time, she left a big impression for the world. She is a role model that any Elitists could look at for inspiration.
Kyra Phillips: She was cunning and vindictive in the ring. She made the moves that weren’t always the most popular, but you can respect that she had the balls to do so. Brody wouldn’t think that she was worthy of having a show dedicated in her honor, but she is so deserving of this. It’s such a shame that she’s not with us today. There’s many questions on what she would be doing today? Would she be a multi-time Women’s Champion? Would we see her in heated rivalries with women such as Kassidy Heart, Raven Roberts and Cameron Ella Ava? It’s always fun to wondering what if Brody was here with us today, but it’s also nice to remember back on the impact that she left in her short time in this company. Right now, we want to look back at the career of Brody Sparks. Straight from the Iconic Vault on the EAW Network in dedication for Brody Sparks week, we go back to Road to Redemption 2016 and the first installment of the Specialists Chamber Match! Roll the footage!
(The scene fades with Kyra Phillips before transitioning to Road to Redemption 2016 in the Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana.)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Starr Stan: Well now all the Vixens have entered into this hellacious structure to all take part in history in the making. The first ever ALL Vixens Extreme Elimination Chamber match and it is officially underway! The current Specialist Champion Kendra Shamez will be starting things off with Former Vixens World Champion and one of the two members of this match who orchestrated this whole contest in the first place in Madison Kaline! And now these two lock up. Maddie gets Kendra in a side headlock and runs for a bulldog. But Kendra shoving her off. Madison bounces back off the ropes and catches a dropkick right to the face by the Specialists Champion.
SG1: Maddie is down and Kendra is in control, and the champ here now stomping away at the back of Madison. Look at the expression of agonizing pain on her face as Shamez continues to go to work on her back. The OG Vixen here with a smirk on her face as she lifts up Madison by her hair and slings her back first into the corner. Maddie staggers out from the corner and walks right into a pendulum backbreaker by Kendra Shamez! Kendra now about to scale the top turnbuckle as Madison Kaline is pulling herself back up to a vertical base. Kendra leaps off now looking for a Diving Double Axe Handle and NO! Madison counters with a Front Dropkick right to the midsection!
Starr Stan: Down goes the champ, basically getting her wings clipped mid flight if you would as now The Sanatorium’s Sadistic Sister is slapping the Kendra Shamez in the back of the head, Madison lifting up Kendra and dropping her with a sickening Neckbreaker! And Madison Kaline floating over to the pin, hoping for the early elimination of the current Specialists Champion!
SG1: And Kendra quickly fighting out of it. Maddie however quickly applying the headlock onto The Champion. Madison Kaline would love nothing more than to prove her status as the former Number One Contender was not a fluke and win the Specialists Title here tonight inside of the Chamber. She’s got five other Vixens including one of her stablemates who stand in her way of that. And now Kendra with elbow strikes to the stomach of Kaline. Kendra turning freeing herself and now going for a big clothesline as Madison ducks it and grabs the arm of Shamez. Irish whip into the corner and now Madison comes racing in. And a big shoulder thrust! Madison Kaline is just punishing the Current Specialists Champion right now.
Starr Stan: You’re telling me, and Maddie now hooking her for a Suplex. She tries to lift up the OG Vixen, but Kendra blocks it with her foot. Madison tries to lift her up again but to no avail! Now Kendra lifts her up and hits a Suplex of her own! Both Vixens are down as the lights are swirling from pod to pod! We’re gearing up for our third participant in the match to enter, and this is when things start to get chaotic. Who’s it gonna be?
SG1: IT’S TARAH NOVA!The first woman to hold BOTH the Vixens and Specialists Championships has entered the fray! The Murder City Vixen coming in like a house of fire as both Madison and Kendra make it back to their feet just to get knocked down! Kendra climbing back up once more. Clothesline out of the ring onto the steel floor on the outside! Tarah turns around and hits running big boot onto Madison Kaline! Tarah lifting up Madison once again and now tosses her out of the ring as well!
Starr Stan: Hold on not quite! Tarah hanging Maddie by that middle turnbuckle and pulling her back with a DDT Clutch. Oh we’ve seen this before from The Vixens Killer. Rope-Hung DDT! Maddie is down as Tarah hooks the leg, WAIT! Kendra just slid back in the ring and tossed Nova off of Madison! And now Kendra Shamez taking the cover for her own!
SG1: Kickout by Madison Kaline! Kendra looks annoyed as she gets up and stomps Maddie in the chest! Now look at her barking at the referee! Screaming for a faster count next time. But you might want to turn around Kendra because HERE COMES TARAH! LEAPING HIGH KNEE! And now Tarah immediately gets up and follows it up with a Standing Moonsault! Tarah lifting up Kendra, but the Specialists Champion hits s solid Jawbreaker to counter, and now the leg sweep takedown! Kendra Shamez lifts up Nova’s leg and delivers a swift kick right in the back of the shin! That’s gotta sting!
Starr Stan: BUT LOOK TARAH GRABS KENDRA’S ARM! SHE HOOKS HER FOR A SMALL PACKAGE!
Starr Stan: And Kendra able to get the shoulder up once again! The pressure has been applied to the champion since the moment the bell rung! She’s going to have to reestablish her OG Dominance and, well I think she’s about to do that. Look at the champ grabbing the same leg of Tarah Nova. Kendra turning Tarah over for a Single Leg Boston Crab! And she’s got it! Kendra Shamez has the Single Leg Boston Crab hooked on Tarah Nova, and Tarah’s got nowhere to go. Remember folks, there’s no rope break in a matchup of this variety! Tarah Nova is going to have to either escape this hold or tap…or lose her spine!
SG1: It looks like Tarah is crawling to the ropes anyways. Why would she do that though. There’s no benefit. But she’s scratching and pulling her way down there now. Kendra trying to fight it as much as she can, but the champ is losing grip on the leg of the Vixen’s Killer! Tarah grabs the ropes and, WAIT A SECOND! SHE’S PULLING HERSELF OUT OF THE RING, AND KENDRA CAN’T STOP HER! The resourceful Tarah Nova finds an unorthodox way to escape the submission hold. Maddie however grabs Tarah and smashes her face first into the steel wall of the structure! And throws her back into the ring. This is a two on one assault right now! HOLD ON! We’re just about to get our fourth competitor ladies and gentlemen, who’s it gonna be?!
Starr Stan: ARIA JAXON! Another former Vixens Champion enters the mix and odds are this isn’t going to become a three on one situation now. These fans have lost their minds as Aria rushes in and saves Tarah’s skin! Clotheslines all around for Kendra and Madison. Maddie gets up right into a Contract Killer! The big Superkick! Kendra now look at her, she grabs Aria from behind. BUT TARAH NOW WITH AN AXE HANDLE TO THE BACK OF THE CHAMPION! TARAH AND ARIA BOTH GRAB KENDRA! AND A DOUBLE SUPERKICK NOW! BACK WHEN THEY TEAMED UNDER THE SIRENS THEY CALLED THAT THE DOUBLE YAHTZEE!
SG1: Aria picking up Kendra meanwhile Tarah going after Madison Kaline. Kendra with a boot to the gut, and and elbow strike to the back of the head! Jaxon is stunned as The Specialists Champion tosses her into the corner. Now here comes Kendra Shamez as ARIA GETS THE KNEES UP! And now she climbs up to the top turnbuckle…DIVING CROSSBODY! NO HOLD ON! KENDRA ROLLS THROUGH AND LIFTS UP ARIA, WHAT STRENGTH BEING SHOWN BY THE OG VIXEN HERE! KENDRA SHAMEZ NOW SPINS ARIA AND GETS HER IN A SPINEBUSTER CLUTCH! AND DROPS THE PINK HAIRED VIXEN RIGHT ON HER BACK!
Starr Stan: Meanwhile Tarah Nova and Madison Kaline are fighting on the outside! Trading blows as Tarah basically, does a face wash to Maddie using the chain wall of the chamber! Hold on, there’s Maddie elbowing Tarah in the side of the head. The Vixen Killer staggers back dazed as Madison Kaline wraps her arms around Tarah, and delivers a Belly to Belly Suplex onto the floor of the chamber now! And…Hold on a second. Madison Kaline is picking something up. Is that a? IT IS! THAT’S A BARBED WIRE BASEBALL BAT! TARAH HAS NO IDEA WHAT’S COMING AS SHE GETS UP ONTO A KNEE! BAM! NEGAN STYLE! I THINK THAT WOULD BE A HOME RUN SHOT RIGHT THERE! MADISON GOES DOWN TO THE COVER HERE.
SG1: TARAH KICKS OUT! MADISON LOOKS BESIDES HERSELF RIGHT NOW. SHE SLAMS THE BAT DOWN ONTO THE GROUND AND GRABS TARAH BY HER HAIR! MADISON RAMMING THE LEADER OF THE VIXENS BACK FIRST AGAINST ONE OF THOSE EMPTY PODS! MADISON NOW CHARGES, BUT TARAH FORWARD ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY AND MADDIE CRACKS HER SKULL UP AGAINST THAT POD! SHE TURNS AROUND AND TARAH LANDS THE TRIPLE X DROP! THE FRANKENSTEINER CONNECTS! TARAH NOVA AND MADISON KALINE DOWN ON THE OUTSIDE FLOOR, FIGHTING FOR SUPREMACY OVER THE OTHER!
Starr Stan: Aria Jaxon now being well…woman handled by The Specialists Champion! Kendra grinding away at Aria with this Butterfly Clutch here. Aria trying to lift her legs for a counter of some sort, but she just can’t reach the face of Kendra! Kendra Shamez laughing now, Mocking Aria Jaxon’s attempts at a comeback! Aria still going, there is never any shortage of fight in that young woman’s body, even I must admit! ARIA JAXON FLIPS BACKWARDS! SHE CATCHES KENDRA’S HEAD BETWEEN HER LEGS! KENDRA RELEASES HER GRIP AS ARIA PUSHES HERSELF OFF THE GROUND WITH HER HANDS! THE YOUNG LION CUP HOLDER SPINNING AROUND AS SHE TOSSES KENDRA SHAMEZ ACROSS THE RING WITH THE HEADSCISSORS!
SG1: This Aria Jaxon is so impressive, but hold that thought folks, because entrant number five is about to enter this warzone now! It’s either going to be Cameron Ella Ava or Brody Sparks! Who will be next up to enter the ring?! The lights flicker between the two pods and stops on Cameron’s! CAMERON ELLA AVA IS NEXT! THE HALL OF FAMER EXITING HER POD AND IMMEDIATELY MAKING HER WAY TO THE RING TO ASSIST KENDRA SHAMEZ! Cam charges in and goes right for her Forearm Smash on Aria! KNOCK BITCHES OUT!
Starr Stan: NO! Aria ducks and Roundhouse Kicks Cameron! HERE COMES KENDRA THOUGH, RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP! AND NOW THIS IS WHAT KENDRA HAD BEEN WAITING FOR THE ENTIRE TIME! THE CHANCE TO TEAM UP WITH CAMERON, HER OG VIXEN ALLY IN THIS MATCH, AND USE THE GANG MENTALITY TO SINGLE OUT EACH MEMBER OF THIS CONTEST! PURE GENIUS, THIS IS WHY KENDRA HAS AND ALWAYS WILL BE THE DEFINITIVE REPRESENTATION OF THE VIXEN’S DIVISION! Well now Kendra Shamez and Cameron Ella Ava stomping away at the seemingly lifeless Aria Jaxon.
Kendra: (No Mic): GRAB HER HORSE HAIR AND PICK HER UP NOW!
SG1: OH NOW LOOK! The control freak Kendra Shamez barking orders! And naturally Cam is going to listen, as she lifts up Aria Jaxon! And Kendra is going to pick something up. Odds are this is another weapon like Madison, but what could she possibly…OH LORD! PLEASE TELL ME THAT’S NOT WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE! KENDRA SHAMEZ HAS A REPLICA SPECIALISTS CHAMPIONSHIP, ONLY THE PLATES OF THIS TITLE ARE COVERED IN SPIKES! IF SHE HITS ARIA WITH THAT, IT’S LIGHTS OUT FOR THE YOUNG LION’S CUP HOLDER FOR SURE! KENDRA TURNING TOWARDS HER TARGET AND WOAH WOAH WOAH!
Starr Stan: TARAH NOVA JUST DOVE OVER THE TOP ROPE BACK INTO THE RING TO ATTACK KENDRA AND SAVE ARIA! TARAH TAKING DOWN KENDRA AND NOW LAYING INTO HER WITH PUNCHES! KENDRA ROLLS OVER TOP TARAH AND NOW BEGINS TO LAY INTO HER WITH RIGHTS! CAM’S MOVING IN TO SEPARATE THE TWO, BUT ARIA TRIPS HER! THIS IS COMPLETELY TURNING INTO BRAWLS AS MADISON IS JUST LOOKING ON FROM THE OUTSIDE. VERY WISE OF HER TO STAY OUT THERE AND WATCH HER ADVERSARIES DESTROY EACH OTHER INSIDE OF THE RING, BUT SHE’S ABOUT TO GET SOME BACKUP, BECAUSE THE FINAL POD IS OPENING UP! HERE COMES BRODY SPARKS, THE SIXTH AND FINAL MEMBER OF THE EMPIRE EXTREME ELIMINATION CHAMBER MATCH!
(Cameron shoves Aria off of her and pulls Kendra up to her feet, freeing her from Tarah’s grip. Cameron and Kendra stare down with Aria and Tarah as the crowd cheers loudly. Madison Kaline enters the ring to stand beside Brody Sparks as the pair stare down both duos of Vixens and the crowd now seeing all six Vixens in their respective units are hollering at the top of their lungs.)
SG1: WHAT A MOMENT HERE! Aria Jaxon and Tarah Nova, two thirds of the former trio known as The Sirens! Brody Sparks and Madison Kaline, two of the four Vixen members of the stable, The Sanatorium! And Cameron Ella Ava shoulder to shoulder with The current Specialists Champion, Kendra Shamez. The two OG Vixens competing in this contest! And that is what this is about at the end of the day folks, The Specialists Championship is why all these Vixens are here, putting their bodies and their careers on the line!

Starr Stan: AND NOW ALL SIX LADIES CHARGE EACH OTHER! I TOLD YOU ALL THE WORLD WAS GOING TO WITNESS PURE MAYHEM AND A LITERAL WAR TONIGHT! AND THEY ARE NOW! TARAH NOVA FIGHTING WITH BRODY SPARKS! ARIA JAXON TRADING BLOWS WITH KENDRA SHAMEZ! AND CAMERON ELLA AVA IN CONTROL OF MADISON KALINE RIGHT NOW!
SG1: Cameron now hitting headbutts as Madison staggers back and gets hung up on the ropes. Cameron runs and bounces off the ropes. She bounces back and hits a Rolling Elbow! Knocking Maddie out of the ring as she rolls out from underneath the bottom rope as well! Back in the ring, Aria and Kendra are fighting one another. Kendra delivers a stiff knee to the stomach of Aria. The Blonde now drops The Young Lion Cup holder with a big DDT! Hold on, is Kendra going back for that…that Spiked Replica Specialist Title Belt! Oh man this is NOT going to end well, Aria on her hands and knees as Kendra swings the title around and WHIPS HER RIGHT IN THE BACK! LOOK AT THE SLASH MARKS THE SPIKES ARE LEAVING!
Starr Stan: Gruesome! Aria Jaxon is definitely going to be feeling that one ALL week long! Tarah Nova running over to try and defend Aria, but Kendra knocks her out too! Brody Sparks leaps off the top turnbuckle to try and catch The Champ, but NO! NOT EVEN THAT WORKS! KENDRA SWATTING BRODY CLEAR OUT OF THE SKY! Kendra now exiting the ring as she sees Cameron and Madison fighting outside! Madison ramming Cam’s face right into the Pod! And now she grabs her and hooks her for a Suplex, but wait here comes Kendra, she smashes the championship right into Madison’s back! OUCH! Cameron slumps down to the ground as Kendra takes her place fighting off Madison.
SG1: Maddie trying to fend off Kendra here! But the Specialists Champion tosses the title down onto the floor and waits for her to get up. Just what the hell kind of an evil move does she have on her mind now? Madison Kaline back up to her feet and THE BITCH TREATMENT! THE JUMPING CUTTER RIGHT ONTO THE SPIKED TITLE BELT! OH MY GOD! KENDRA TO THE COVER NOW!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Ring Announcer: Madison Kaline has been eliminated!
(A replay of Kendra Shamez hitting The Bitch Treatment on Madison Kaline onto the Spiked Replica Championship plays.)
Starr Stan: Well so long Maddie, Kendra put her out for sure with that sick cutter, and you gotta believe that this elimination will affect the performance of Brody. But now Cameron and Kendra picking themselves back up, they certainly look a LOT more confident now that one of the two of them will be leaving as the Specialists Champio- OH! ARIA JAXON AND TARAH NOVA SUICIDE DIVES TO BOTH OF THE OG VIXENS RIGHT INTO THE CHAIN WALLS! AND NOW BOTH OF THEM THROWING AN OG BACK INTO THE RING! ARIA HAS KENDRA AND TARAH HAS CAMERON!
SG1: Aria Jaxon now picking up Kendra Shamez and now hooking her in a Suplex Clutch. The Pink haired Vixen lifts up the Specialists Champion and drops her for a big time Brainbuster! Shades of Aren Mstislav as Aria now goes for the cover!
SG1: N-NO! KENDRA KICKS OUT! I THOUGHT THAT WAS IT RIGHT THERE FOR HER! WE WERE JUST A SPLIT SECOND AWAY FROM GUARANTEEING A NEW SPECIALISTS CHAMPION TONIGHT! Aria can’t believe it either. She’s running her hands through her hair now. On the other side of the ring however, Cameron and Tarah are duking it out as Tarah gets the upper hand! She ducks a slap from Cam and hits a low dropkick, clipping the Hall of Famer down to the mat. She’s now sliding out of the ring to grab a weapon of her own. Just what could someone who calls themselves the Vixen Killer have had in mind for this matchup?
Starr Stan: A RAILROAD SPIKE! THAT’S WHAT! TARAH NOVA WITH THAT RAILROAD SPIKE IN HAND! JUST WAITING FOR CAMERON ELLA AVA TO GET UP! CAM’S UP TO HER FEET AND TARAH JAMS THAT RAILROAD SPIKE RIGHT INTO HER FOREHEAD! OH MY GOODNESS, CAM IS BLEEDING RIGHT UPON THE IMPACT! TARAH NOW SCREAMS AND RAISES THE SPIKE INTO THE AIR! WAIT WAIT HOLD ON! BRODY SPARKS COMES IN AND TRIES TO ROLL UP TARAH!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Ring Announcer: Tarah Nova has been eliminated!
SG1” WHA-WHAT!? JUST LIKE THAT?! AND NOW LOOK! BRODY NOW GOING TO COVER CAMERON! BUT THE GODDESS IMMEDIATELY SHOVING SPARKS OFF OF HER! Brody picking up Cameron and slinging her shoulder first into the turnbuckle! And now savagely stomping away at her in the corner! There’s nothing Cameron can do here, she’s pinned into that seated position! Brody now creating distance…she runs in and drives both of her knees right into the face of Cameron! She now scales up the top turnbuckle. Brody Sparks is not letting up one bit here, she recognizes this is her opportunity to get a huge threat out of this contest! Brody jumps off looking for a Diving Crossbody but CAMERON CATCHES HER! CAMERON NOW POWERS HER UP ONTO HER SHOULDERS IN AN ARGENTINE CLUTCH! BREAKING BARRIERS! THE ARGENTINE BACKBREAKER CONNECTS! BUT CAMERON IS SO WINDED, SHE CAN’T MAKE THE COVER!
Starr Stan: Meanwhile the only two who are capable of fighting now, Aria and Kendra have made their way to center of the ring once more! These two bitter enemies once again trading lefts and rights back and forth! First Aria! Then Kendra! Back to Aria! And Kendra returns with another! But Kendra quickly now applies a waist lock a waist lock before Aria can retort! The Hall of Famer now powers Aria Jaxon up onto her shoulders from behind! Electric Chair Drop?! NO ARIA LEAPS OFF FROM BEHIND! And now the two trading forearm strikes once again!Hold on here comes Cameron Ella Ava from behind! GODDESS’ TOUCH! THE RUNNING ENZUIGIRI! WAIT! NO NO NO! ARIA DUCKED! CAMERON JUST CAUGHT KENDRA INSTEAD! CAMERON IS PINNING KENDRA! CAM NO! STOP!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Ring Announcer: Kendra Shamez has been eliminated!
SG1: OH MY GOODNESS STAN! DO YOU REALIZE WHAT THIS MEANS?! WE ARE GUARANTEED A NEW SPECIALISTS CHAMPION NOW!
Starr Stan: Personally, I’m more concerned with this little situation between Cameron and Kendra! LOOK AT KENDRA, SHE’S JUST IN SHOCK AND DISBELIEF! THAT HER OWN TAG TEAM PARTNER OF ALL PEOPLE WOULD DO THAT! CAMERON LOOKS SPEECHLESS TOO, I GUESS SHE’S FINALLY REALIZING WHAT SHE DID!
(A replay of Cameron Ella Ava going for the Goddess Touch on Aria Jaxon, but catching Kendra Shamez instead plays.)
SG1: Well now officials are FORCING Kendra Shamez to exit the chamber, but look at her kicking and resisting! Just accept it honey, YOU LOST YOUR TITLE TONIGHT!
Starr Stan: Well NOW it’s time to find out, who’s going to WIN Kendra’s Specialists Championship! You’ve got one Vixen from each side. Aria Jaxon. Cameron Ella Ava. And Brody Sparks. Aria and Brody both staring each other down. Hold on they’re getting in each other’s faces. Are they gonna go? AND THEY BOTH RUSH CAMERON! ARIA JAXON AND BRODY SPARKS ON THE SAME PAGE! TAKE OUT THE STRONGEST MEMBER OF THE MATCH! ARIA JAXON AND BRODY SPARKS BOTH DELIVERING SWIFT AND STIFF KICKS TO CAMERON ELLA AVA! ARIA TO THE CHEST AND BRODY TO THE BACK! BUT WAIT!

Cameron now getting up as Brody rushes over to her and delivers a big knee lift, followed by a swinging neckbreaker! And now Brody Sparks climbing up to the top turnbuckle. I don’t know what she has in mind, but it’s nothing but trouble for Cameron. AND THERE’S ARIA! ARIA JAXON WITH A SHOT TO THE TEMPLE, DAZING BRODY! AND NOW THE YOUNG LION’S CUP HOLDER JOINING THE VIXEN OF VIOLENCE UP ON THE TOP ROPE! OH MAN! SUPERPLEX!? ARIA TRYING TO KEEP HER GRIP!

AND SHE’S STILL GOT BRODY SPARKS HOOKED! SHE LIFTS BRODY UP ONCE MORE AND HITS THE A BIG TIME SIT OUT GOURDBUSTER!
Starr Stan: While Aria Jaxon and Brody Sparks are down, Cameron is fidgeting with something from inside of her pod. What on earth could this be. We realize the weapons as of this match have been nothing short of brutal! And we know someone as evil as Cam could have a truly destructive weapon in mind. Huh? Is that a Scepter?! A Diamond Studded Scepter?! AND CAMERON SMASHES THE SCEPTER ACROSS THE FACE OF ARIA! THE GODDESS HAS HAD ENOUGH FOLKS! AND BRODY TRYING TO PICK HERSELF UP! BUT CAM CRACKS HER SQUARE IN THE BACK WITH THAT SCEPTER! CAMERON IS POISED TO WIN AND IS IN FULL CONTROL!
SG1: Now, she’s removing the top diamond from that Scepter. But why?
Starr Stan: Is she…? DUMPING DIAMOND SHARDS ALL AROUND THE RING FLOOR!?
SG1: That’s what it looks like, and you have to believe that those shards will cut into your flesh! Cameron picking up Brody now! Getting her on her shoulders! ALABAMA SLAM! THE ALABAMA SLAM SENDING BRODY SPARKS BACK FIRST RIGHT INTO THOSE DIAMOND SHARDS! OH MY LORD! Cameron covers her now.
Starr Stan: YE-NO! BRODY SPARKS SURVIVES! I DON’T KNOW HOW BUT SHE DID! Now Cameron turns her attention to Aria Jaxon, whom is picking herself up using the ring ropes. Cameron now picks her up and hooks her for a Suplex. But it’s blocked. Cam goes for it again. Aria once again fighting back however. Now Aria going for a Suplex. This time Cameron blocks it and clubs Aria several times in the back. She now lifts her up for a vertical suplex and holds her up there. Cameron Ella Ava displaying her power right now ladies and gentlemen!
(A replay of Cameron Ella Ava hitting the Alabama Slam on Brody Sparks into the Diamond Shards plays.)
SG1: No no no wait! Aria flips behind and drops the Hall of Famer with a devastating hangman’s neckbreaker! Aria fighting her way into the driver’s seat of this contest now as she picks herself back up with the assistance of the ropes. Aria runs at Cameron and knocks her down with a big clothesline. Cameron gets back up as she takes another. Cameron now charges at Aria for a clothesline of her own!
Starr Stan: Aria ducks underneath and delivers the Slingblade to her! Marvelous execution there. Miss Jaxon now scaling the top turnbuckle. She rests and awaits Cameron to climb back to her feet. The Hall of Famer is now rising back up as Aria leaps off for a diving Hurricanrana! CAMERON CATCHES HER! Powerbomb clutch! What is Cameron going to do now?
SG1: She begins pacing around. NO ARIA JUST DECKED CAMERON WITH SOMETHING! ARE THOSE BRASS KNUCKLES?! AND THEY ZAPPED CAM! ELECTRIFIED BRASS KNUCKLES USED BY ARIA JAXON! SHE SOCKED CAMERON IN THE MOUTH AND NOW COUNTERS AND STILL HURRICANRANAS CAMERON RIGHT ONTO THOSE DIAMOND SHARDS!
Starr Stan: Aria Jaxon now scaling the top turnbuckle as BRODY SPARKS OUT OF NOWHERE! SHE JUST CLOCKED ARIA AND KNOCKED HER OFF THE TOP TURNBUCKLE WITH..IS THAT WHAT I THINK IT IS! OH MY GOD! ONLY BRODY SPARKS LADIES AND GENTLEMEN!
SG1: BRODY SPARKS HAS A BARBWIRE WRAPPED DILDO!
Starr Stan: It looks about 12 inches in length.
SG1: HOW DO YOU EVEN KNOW THAT?!
Starr Stan: DON’T WORRY ABOUT THAT! WE HAVE A MATCH TO COMMENTATE!
SG1: Sigh…well Brody just sent Aria flying out of the ring with that shot! And now The Hypnotic Heroine eerily walks over to the down and out Cameron Ella Ava. She slowly removes the barbed wire and…oh this is not PG whatsoever.
Starr Stan: SHE’S REMOVED THE BARBED WIRE AND STUFFED NOT SHE’S GOING RAW!
Starr Stan: WHAT?!
SG1: I need a new partner…EITHER WAY BRODY SPARKS NOW REPEATEDLY BASHING CAMERON IN THE TORSO WITH THAT DILDO! BRODY SPARKS NOW PICKING UP CAMERON AND HOOKING HER FOR A SUPLEX! BRODY LIFTS HER UP, BUT CAM OVERPOWERING THE MUCH SMALLER VIXEN! BRODY TRIES AGAIN, BUT STILL CANNOT MUSTER THE STRENGTH! HERE COMES ARIA! ARIA HOOKS THE OTHER ARM OF CAMERON! NOW THEY’RE BOTH LIFTING HER UP! DOUBLE SUPLEX! NO! CAMERON SLIPS BACK DOWN AND NOW SHE’S LIFTING BOTH ARIA AND BRODY UP! WHAT POWER BEING DISPLAYED BY THE HALL OF FAMER HERE!

CAM TURNS AROUND AS ARIA SPRINGS OFF THE ROPES AND HITS THE ONE NIGHT STAND! THE SPRINGBOARD STUNNER! ARIA HOOKS BOTH LEGS!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Ring Announcer: Cameron Ella Ava has been eliminated!
(A replay of Aria Jaxon hitting the One Night Stand on Cameron Ella Ava plays.)
Starr Stan: Well now it comes down to two! And now the OG Vixens have lost the Specialists Title for good! Brody Sparks on one knee, looking up at her final adversary, in the form of Aria Jaxon. The two looking holes into each other as the crowd is buzzing with excitement over this final matchup! Brody motions for Aria to bring it on as she climbs back to her feet! Aria goes in and the two lock up! Aria shoves Brody into the corner and climbs to the second rope! Now she is delivering right hands! ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FIVE! SIX! SEVEN! EIGHT! NINE! TE-
SG1: BRODY SPARKS LIFTS UP ARIA AND FLAPJACKS HER! ARIA’S FACE BOUNCING OFF THAT TURNBUCKLE AND NOW MONKEY FLIPS HER! JAXON’S BACK LANDING RIGHT IN THAT BOTTOM TURNBUCKLE! SPARKS BUILDING TONS OF MOMENTUM NOW AS SHE GOES TO THE OPPOSITE SIDE OF THE RING. STARING DOWN THE LIMP ARIA JAXON STUCK IN THE CORNER! BRODY SPARKS CHARGES IN AND CANNONBALLS ARIA! BRODY COVERS!
Starr Stan: KICKOUT! ARIA GETTING THE SHOULDER UP ONCE MORE! BRODY SPARKS GRABBING THAT BLACK MAMBA ONCE AGAIN WITH THAT FIRM GRIP OF HERS! SHE SWINGS FOR THE FENCES! BUT ARIA DUCKS AND KICKS HER IN THE GUT! SHE HOOKS BRODY AND HITS THE L.A. SUNSET! THE LEG TRAP SUNSET FLIP POWERBOMB! AND NOW SHE HOOKS BRODY UP!
SG1: BRODY WITH FIGHT LEFT IN HER AS WELL! SHE KICKS OUT AND NOW ARIA PICKING HER BACK UP! YOU CAN SEE THE COMBINATION OF FRUSTRATION AND FATIGUE SETTING IN FOR BOTH OF THESE VIXENS! OPPORTUNITIES LIKE THIS IS WHY EMPIRE WAS CREATED IN THE FIRST PLACE! BRODY SPARKS AND ARIA JAXON ARE FIGHTING FOR THE RIGHT TO CLAIM THEY MADE HISTORY TONIGHT!
Starr Stan: NOW BOTH OF THESE LADIES ARE BACK TO THEIR FEET! THEY’RE SO TIRED ALL THEY CAN DO IS TRADE PUNCHES! AIRA CATCHES A PUNCH! AND NOW SHE TURNS BRODY AROUND! ARIA RUNS OUT AND FLIPS OUT OF THE CORNER! PINK PRINT! THE SHIRANUI FLIP TRANSITIONED INTO A DOUBLE KNEE BACKBREAKER! THIS ONE’S GOTTA BE ALL OVER! ARIA JAXON TO THE COVER! FOR THE TITLE!
SG1: IT’S ALL OVER!
Starr Stan: NO IT’S NOT!
SG1: WHA-WHAT?! HOW?!
(A replay of Aria Jaxon hitting the Pink Print on Brody Sparks, but Brody narrowly kicking out before Three plays.)
Starr Stan: BRODY SPARKS, SOMEHOW! SOMEWAY! MANAGED TO LIFT HER SHOULDER UP BEFORE THE COUNT OF THREE COULD BE COMPLETED! ARIA IS JUST LYING ON THE GROUND IN DISBELIEF! SHE LOOKS LIFELESS! SHE CAN BARELY WILL HERSELF TO A STANDING POSITION USING THE ROPES! ARIA LOOKING DOWN AT BRODY, BUT NOW LOOKING UP AT THE POD. JUST WHAT…NO! NO NO NO! SHE CAN’T DO THIS!
SG1: IS SHE THINKING WHAT WE THINK SHE IS?! IS ARIA GOING TO GO FOR IT?! CAN SHE EVEN MUSTER THE ENERGY TO PULL IT OFF?!
Starr Stan: I don’t have a clue, but I do know that there is a wide margin for error here and Aria could potentially screw herself out of this championship match single handedly if this backfires!
SG1: WELL SHE’S GOING FOR IT STAN! ARIA IS CLIMBING ALL THE WAY UP TO THE TOP OF THAT CHAMBER POD! ARIA LOOKS ON AT THE SEA OF FANS WHO ARE SCREAMING AT THE TOP OF THEIR LUNGS! IT’S A MIX OF REACTIONS! SOME WILLING ARIA ON! SOME WISHING FOR HER TO NOT KILL HERSELF! SOME WHO JUST WANT TO SEE DAREDEVIL STUNTS! EITHER WAY WHAT GOES UP MUST COME DOWN! AND ARIA HAS A LONG WAY TO GO!
Starr Stan: WAIT! BRODY SPARKS! SHE’S CLIMBING THE TURNBUCKLE! ARIA TRYING TO KICK HER AWAY! THIS IS A BAD SPOT FOR BOTH OF THESE VIXENS! BOTH OF THEIR CAREERS COULD BE SIGNIFICANTLY SHORTENED, IF NOT FLAT OUT ENDED DEPENDING ON HOW THIS PLAYS OUT! ARIA THROWS A KICK, BUT BRODY CATCHES HER LEG AND SLAMS IT INTO THAT POD! ARIA FLINCHES IN PAIN AS BRODY CLIMBS ALL THE WAY UP WITH HER! BRODY SPARKS GRABS ARIA’S HAIR! NO! NO! BRODY! WE KNOW YOU’RE OUT THERE! BUT YOU CANNOT BE CRAZY ENOUGH TO ATTEMPT THIS! EVEN YOU HAVE TO REALIZE HOW THIS COULD GO HORRIFICALLY WRONG!
SG1: I DOUBT SHE CARES AT THIS RATE STAN! I THINK BRODY JUST WANTS TO PUT AN END TO ALL OF THIS, EVEN IF IT MEANS THE END OF HERSELF! BRODY LEAPS OFF WITH ARIA OFF THE TOP OF THAT DAMN POD AND LANDS THE SPARKS FLY RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING! THE AVALANCHE SIT OUT FACEBUSTER! ARIA’S GOTTA BE FINISHED AFTER THAT! BRODY TURNS HER OVER AND HOOKS BOTH LEGS! DO WE FINALLY HAVE OURSELVES A VICTOR?!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Ring Announcer: Aria Jaxon has been eliminated! THEREFORE! YOUR WINNER AND THE NEEEEEEEEEEEEWWWWWWWWWWWWW EAW SPECIALISTS CHAMPION….BRRROOOOOOOOOOOOOOODYYYYYYYYYYY SPAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(Deftones by RX Queen blasts throughout the Arena as Brody Sparks lies in the middle of the ring, victorious. The final replay of Brody Sparks hitting the Sparks Fly on Aria Jaxon, off of the top of the Pod plays. Madison Kaline, Alexis Diemos, and Stephanie Matsuda all enter the chamber to help Brody to her feet and celebrate her victory. Madison takes the Specialists Championship and looks down at it for a moment. Then looks over to Brody and smiles, before handing her the championship. The four embrace as Brody is placed upon Stephanie’s shoulders. She raises the championship up high in the sky.)
Starr Stan: AND THIS MATCH FINALLY COMES TO AN END!
SG1: WOW…Simply wow. We knew this contest was going to be a game changer, but I doubt any of us were ready for what we just witnessed!
Starr Stan: TRULY! I HAVE NO DOUBT IN MY MIND THAT AFTER TONIGHT, THESE VIXENS DESERVED THE CHANCE TO STEP INTO THE CHAMBER! AND FROM THE LOOKS OF THINGS, THESE FANS AGREE WITH ME!
SG1: Well we also walk away with a NEW Specialists Champion as the Sanatorium’s Brody Sparks makes history, winning her first championship here in EAW inside of the sadistic steel structure designed to end careers, not necessarily make them!
