(EAW intro plays.)
(UNDER SIEGE RECAP: it shows the Hardcore Match between Ryan Wilson and The Ring Master is shown. The fuckery within this match is highlighted, making this match stand out from all the other matches on this card. The both of them try to kill one another for the sake of winning, but Ryan manages to sneak away with the victory.)
(It goes to the PURE Championship Gauntlet as Harlow Reichert begins the match. She manages to get through Shane Gates and Lucas Johnson. Somehow, she manages to roll up Santo Muerte to get past him, but Santo attacks Harlow, breaking her arm in the process. The suffering doesn’t stop there as Lance Blackfyre comes out and continues to punish Harlow. Lance crashes himself on the barricade as Harlow places some of the wreckage on Lance and he gets the count out victory. After the match, Lance retaliates by connecting with the Titanic Plunge through the announcer’s table. Jake comes out and tries to declare himself as the new PURE Champion as Harlow is being rolled through a stretcher, but Harlow manages to get himself out of the way before Jake could be crowned as the champion. The two of them fight off a bit longer until Jake manages to connect with the Ride to Hell from the top rope and becomes a two-time PURE Champion. It zooms to a brokenhearted Harlow picking herself up and the crowd applauding her before she turns towards the back.)
(It goes to highlights of Heavenly Hell taking on Vizzy and Drizzy. Both of the teams are really bringing to each other. Close towards the end of the match, Constance Blevins manages to hurt her ankle, which would be the downfall of Heavenly Hell. It goes to Drake King connecting with a curb stomp, but Viz holds down Minerva, preventing her from making the save and Drake and Viz dethrone the historic championship reign of Heavenly Hell.)
(It pans to the highlights of Jamie O’Hara taking on Candice Blair. The match is seen to be highly competitive with neither competitor wanting to stay down for the three count. Candice targeting Jamie’s knee is a fact seen all throughout this match. It forwards towards the end of the match with Candice getting back to the ring and Jamie connecting with a Genki Cannon before nailing her with a Stardust Breaker for the three count. Post match, Candice sticks out her hands for Jamie to shake, which he does as the two of them raise each other’s arms up.)
(It goes to the highly competitive bout for the Universal Women’s Championship. Champion Raven Roberts puts her title on the line against Alexis Chambers and Harper Lee. All three competitors are delivering the best showing possible. All the nearfalls are highlighted in the match, before it goes to Raven and Harper punching each other on the top rope, but Harper manages to crash down. A back and forth with Alexis and Raven is shown, but Alexis gets kicked out with a Talon and Raven retains. Post match, Minerva comes out to cash in the Iconic Cup on Raven. It takes a Princess Killer and Paradise Lost to put down Raven and crown Minerva the new champion.)
(It pans to Mr. DEDEDE versus Xander Payne. Highlights of the match are seen with DEDEDE bringing everything to Xander. Xander is showing to dish out whatever DEDEDE throws at him while bringing something aggressive to the table as well. Both men are refusing to die. We head towards the end of the match with Xander connecting Last Sedation on DEDEDE and going for the cover. DEDEDE has his foot on the bottom rope, but the referee fails to see that while giving Xander possibly the biggest victory of his career.)
(It goes to the Answers World Championship Match. Champion Cameron Ella Ava takes on her challengers, Ahren Fournier and Chris Elite. We see The ILLIONAIRES working together to take down Cameron. Both of them pin Cameron, but the referee says that only one of them will be able to get the pin. This leads to the ILLIONAIRES turning on each other before bringing the fight to each other. Eventually, Cameron manages to conquer the odds and pins both Chris and Ahren to retain the championship. The ILLIONAIRES looking at each other in disappointment.)
(“DNA” by Kendrick Lamar begins to play, cueing the Saturday Night Showdown intro music before heading towards the arena with the blue and silver pyro begins to go off! The crowd is cheering out of their minds.)
( SCREEN BAR — RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL!)
(The camera pans to the three announcers, Gavin Kirkland, Eve and Deadprez in their masks and gloves. COVID-19 is still a thing, ladies and gentlemen.)
Eve: HOT OFF A VERY SUCCESSFUL UNDER SIEGE, WELCOME TO FRIDAY EDITION OF SATURDAY NIGHT SHOWDOWN! I AM EVE!
Gavin Kirkland: I am Gavin Kirkland!
Deadprez: I’m Deadprez! Under Siege shaped up to be a wonderful event! Cameron Ella Ava is still the Answers World Championship! Minerva cashed in her Iconic Cup to become the New Universal Women’s Champion! We’ll be hearing from her later and get an update on Constance Blevins! We also witness Jake Smith add his name next to StarrStan in the history books by becoming a two-time PURE Champion!
Gavin Kirkland: I’m still kinda sad for Thicclow, who is at home this week, recovering from her arm injury, which is the best thing that could happen for her. :mjcry:
Eve: :mjcry: Also, we have a wonderful main event for this edition of Showdown as Mr. DEDEDE versus one of our newer signees, TNT!
Gavin Kirkland: I’m not sure how DEDEDE’s gonna win this one! TNT so bodied him! :noah:
( DING! DING! DING! )
Gina Romano: The following contest is scheduled for one fall and is a NUMBER ONE CONTENDERSHIP CONTEST for the EAW ANSWERS HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP!!!!!!!
Deadprez: Wait, we’re having this match right now?!?!?
Gavin Kirkland: It’s The Gawd, Deadprez. He can do whatever he wants. :wow:
( Future – “Solo” hits, and Mr. DEDEDE walks through the billowing smoke side by side with his wife, Kassidy Heart. The pair are donning DDD’s curated GPN95 ‘Ronie Free’ masks, and DDD himself is dressed for competition. )
Gina Romano: Introducing first… accompanied by KASSIDY HEART, hailing from The Ryan Adams Estate in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, weighing in tonight at 235 POOOOUNNDS!!! “THE GAWD” MMMISSTTEEEEEEEEEEER DEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE DEEEEEEEEEEE DEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!
Gavin Kirkland: Reeling from his untimely loss at Under Siege, The Gawd enters what could arguably be his greatest challenge to date thus far!!! With a possible Answers World Championship opportunity looming on the horizon, he still has one major hurdle to overcome in the opening match of what should be a classic show!
Deadprez: I concur 100% Gav, I’ve seen this man overcome just about every obstacle you could imagine over the past 11 years, but never have I seen him placed in a situation like this. This could pose as a bigger threat to his health than the infamous Cinderblock Hell In A Cell match in AWF nearly 12 years ago from this day!
Eve: Good to know.
( DDD is in the ring warming up, keeping his eyes fixed on the stage while his new theme music dies down. )
( “Five Nights At Freddy’s” by The Living Tombstone hits, and TNT rushes out to the stage making his energetic entrance and lighting up the audience with his enthusiasm. He jogs to the ring, slapping hands with fans at ramp-side and ignoring all Social Distancing protocol. )
Gina Romano: His opponent… from Brisbane, Australia weighing in at 136 POOOUNDS… T!!!!!! N!!!!!!! T!!!!!!!!!
Deadprez: Gavin give us a little bit of background on this young man.
Gavin Kirkland: Not much is truly known about this enigmatic GOAT, but from the little I’ve heard, our Gawd may be in serious trouble! Mightier men have fallen at the hands of the offensive prowess of The Brisbane Brawler, Mr. Dynomite, Billionaire Ted’s favorite son! We are dealing with a being who is equipped with a special set of abilities quite unlike any that we’ve seen in years. With the teleportation abilities of Koumidiator, and the firebending abilities of the legendary HRDO, we are in for a “fiendish” display between two of the world’s greatest prize fighters!
( The referee distributes some hand sanitizer to TNT, as to avoid him catching anything from the fans in the audience. )
Eve: Kudos to our official for keeping our Elitists safe and sanitized.
Gavin Kirkland: Eve plz, the Wu-Flu should be quarantining itself from TNT. Not the other way around. What an opening contest we have prepared for these great fans who showed up and showed out for us despite the globally catastrophic circumstances! We are in for the beginning of an absolute treat! The greatest Elitist of all time.. against Mr. DEDEDE! The Gawd against the undefeated, undisputed king! RING THAT BELL BABY!
( DING! DING! DING! )
Eve: WAIT A SECOND! DDD TAKES OFF!!! SPEAR!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: RUNNING KNEE FROM TNT!!!
Eve: WHAT?! :dahell:
Deadprez: CAUGHT HIM IN HIS TRACKS! TNT SENDS HIM INTO THE ROPES… CLOBBERS DDD WITH A LARIAT COMING BACK! NO DDD DUCKS UNDER THAT, REBOUNDS OFF THE OPPOSITE ROPES, AND HE’S COMING BACK FOR A SPEAR AGAIN –
Gavin Kirkland: HIP TOSS!!! THIS PLACE IS LOSING IT! DDD SCRAMBLES BACK UP, RUNNING BACK ELBOW FROM TNT!!! THAT SENDS DDD BACKPEDALING INTO THE CORNER, BLINDSIDED, AND TNT CHARGES AT HIM FIRING AWAY WITH RIGHTS AND LEFTS! THE LARGER, TALLER, MORE HUSKY YET SEEMINGLY LIGHTER IN WEIGHT COMPETITOR GETTING THE BEST OF OUR GAWD WITH THESE BODY BLOWS!
Ref: 1! 2! 3! 4!
Deadprez: BELLY TO BELLY OVERHEAD SUPLEX SENDS THE HALL OF FAMER CLEAR ACROSS THE RING! TURNING HIM INSIDE OUT!
Eve: Look at Kassidy! She is stunned!
Gavin Kirkland: AND SO IS DDD, BUT IN A DIFFERENT KIND OF WAY; TNT RIPS DDD UP FROM THE FLOOR AND UP TO HIS SHOULDERS! BIG ENDING!!!! PLANTING THE 7-TIME WORLD CHAMPION, HOOK OF BOTH LEGS!
Gavin Kirkland: KICK OUT BEFORE THE REF CAN EVEN HIT A COUNT OF “TWO”! DDD scrambling up very quickly! Using the ropes for some semblance of reprieve – ONLY TO BE TAKEN OUT OF THE RING WITH A DECAPITATING LARIAT! DDD flops down to ringside, with his wife immediately rushing to his aid. DDD is trying to recuperate as fast as possible, you can tell even he is bewildered by what’s happening. DDD at the ramp now, backing away almost as if he’s ready to call it quits. His wife giving him council now –
( The lights go out. )
( The lights return. )
Deadprez: WATCH YOUR BACK!
Gavin Kirkland: TNT CLOBBERS DDD FROM BEHIND! INEXPLICABLY APPEARING BEHIND OUR GAWD! DDD COMES TUMBLING DOWN TO RINGSIDE AFTER THAT NASTY BLOW TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD, NOW TNT QUICKLY REELS HIM IN AND HOISTS HIM UP FOR A POWERBOMB STRAIGHT INTO THE APRON!!! BEFORE ROLLING DDD BACK INTO THE RING!
( TNT enters the ring while DDD rolls away favoring his back. )
Deadprez: TNT’S GOING FOR SOMETHING BIG THIS TIME!
( TNT looks around at the hyped up audience before performing “The Worm” and finishing off with. )
Gavin Kirkland: BIG TIME ELBOW! POTENTIALLY STOPPING THE HEART OF THE HEART OF THIS INDUSTRY! “THE CATERPILLAR” LANDS, TO PUT DDD AWAY!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
Eve: Kick out by DDD again. I still have no idea what the hell is happening.
Gavin Kirkland: IT APPEARS THE END IS NIGH! TNT PERFORMING THAT SPIDER CRAWL, STRAIGHT OUT OF NIGHTMARES, WATCHING AND WAITING FOR DDD TO FIND THAT INNER STRENGTH AND PULL HIMSELF OUT OF THE HOLE HE’S IN! BUT AS DDD RISES, IT COULD BE OUT OF THE FRYING PAN AND INTO THE PROVERBIAL FIRE, BECAUSE HE IS WANDERING STRAIGHT INTO THE CLUTCHES OF OUR FUTURE ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION… SISTER ABIGAIL FROM TNT!!!!
Eve: DDD squirms out of it! Shoves him away from behind! TNT turns back around – MOWED DOWN WITH A SPEAR!!!!
Gavin and Deadprez: :damn: !!!!
Eve: Party’s over! DDD hovers over TNT with a look that could absolutely kill, before dragging him up from the floor by the head and hooking the arms! MK DRIVER!!!!!!!!!! LIFTING DOUBLE UNDERHOOK BRAINBUSTER PILEDRIVES POOR TNT THROUGH THE MAT, AND THERE’S THE COVER.
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!
( DING! DING! DING! )
( “Solo” by Future hits, and Kassidy Heart enters the ring clapping up a storm for her man. )
Gina Romano: Here is your winner and the NEW NUMBER 1 CONTENDER TO THE ANSWERS HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP!!! MMMMISSTEEEEEEEERRRRR DEEEEEEEEEEEE DEEEEEEEEEEEEE DEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: :mjcry: A hero has fallen.
Deadprez: That may be the case, but a GAWD has risen! And he has officially stamped his ticket to a rematch against Cameron Ella Ava presumably at the Grand Rampage.
Eve: You know he may as well have just handed himself the title shot.
Gavin Kirkland: You should know better Eve, he may be our Chairman but he is a competitor first and foremost! He wants to earn his opportunities, which is exactly what he did tonight against a once-in-a-generational athlete!
( DDD and Kassidy embrace this victory, and begin to take their leave while TNT is on the ground receiving medical attention. )
Eve: One thing you’ve got to give DDD is this, he certainly knows how to look past his setbacks. You can tell regardless of how things have played out over the past number of months, the sight of himself once again holding the Answers World Championship is all he can see in his eyes. That kind of tunnel vision could very well be the key to making his vision a reality – which would be a terrifying thought for all of Showdown…
Eve: As we continue on with this show, we wanted to direct the attention to Jamie O’Hara.
(A series of articles from wrestling dirt sheet sites go up on the screen, highlighting Jamie O’Hara and his potential injury in an EAW Live Show in Lima, Peru earlier this week.)
Deadprez: During his match at Under Siege, Jamie O’Hara was seen limping and clutching to his knee in the ring. We had heard from medical personnel, who claimed that his injury wasn’t severe and he would be cleared to perform in the last few live shows of the South America portion of the tour. At a Live Show in Lima, Peru, Jamie would reaggravate the injury. He managed to complete the match, but he needed to be helped out of the ring.
(Now, a few articles go up on the screen, listing that Jamie O’Hara will not be cleared for Grand Rampage and questions about how serious his injury could be.)
Gavin Kirkland: Worst day ever. What in the hell am I going to do without Jamie and his abs? 😭
Eve: Right now, we have footage of yesterday with Kyra Phillips’ interview with Jamie O’Hara. In that interview, they discuss his injury, when he’s expected to return to the ring and what can we expect for him going into Pain for Pride season.
Deadprez: Let’s roll the footage!
(SCREEN BAR — FRIDAY AFTERNOON.)
(The scene pans to Kyra Phillips seated in an undisclosed location in Lima, Peru. Kyra is wearing a salmon pink long sleeve jumpsuit. Her hair is completely tied up in a ponytail. She has a smile on her face as she’s more than excited to get this interview underway.)
Kyra Phillips: EAW Universe, we are hot off of what fans are calling one of the best brand-exclusive events of the entire season. With many new champions crowned and lots of progression going into this Pain for Pride season, we are excited for everyone to see what the Showdown brand has to offer to go into the rest of the season. At Under Siege, this man got his first victory at a special event/FPV since Midsummer Massacre. Jamie, I’m glad that you can sit down with us.
(The camera points to Jamie O’Hara with his crutches on a chair next to him. Jamie looks a little exhausted, despite it being two days after getting surgery; however, he is doing everything in his power to keep as enthusiastic as possible.)
Jamie O’Hara: Glad to be here, Kyra.
Kyra Phillips: I suppose, we’ll address the elephant in the room. How are you holding up?
Jamie O’Hara: I’m a bit exhausted. I heard the pop in my knee around the closing part of my match. At that moment, I knew that I fucked something up. I was raced to a hospital in Lima and after a couple of x-rays, I found out that I had torn my meniscus. Twelve hours later, I was rushed to surgery. After the surgery, I was informed that it was going to take at least six weeks to recover from the injury, which means, Grand Rampage is out of the question for me.
Kyra Phillips: It’s unfortunate because people were wondering where you were going to go after your victory at Under Siege. Were you going to insert yourself into Grand Rampage? Were you going to get an opportunity for the Answers World Championship?
Jamie O’Hara: It’s unfortunate that I’m missing out on Grand Rampage. There’s no doubt that I would have won Grand Rampage again and went on to headline another Pain for Pride. Headlining Pain for Pride is something that’s been on my mind. Last year, I felt like that moment was robbed from me. I wanted nothing more than to have that Pain for Pride moment. I would love nothing more than to redeem myself from coming so close to capturing the Answers World Championship. I am determined to make sure that I get to Pain for Pride. This injury is only a setback for me. It’s one of many setbacks that I’ve experienced this season alone. It’s been almost over a year since I’ve held championship gold. To most people, that seems like completely nothing at all. To me, that seems like a long fucking time and if I’m not Answers World Champion by the end of this season, I’m not sure what in the fuck I am going to do. Pain for Pride is going to end with me raising that Answers World Championship above my head, my wife in my arms and adding another reason why I am The Ace in this company.
Kyra Phillips: What happens if it’s Cameron who stands as champion at Pain for Pride?
Jamie O’Hara: Then, we’ll fight for the Answers World Championship. It’s not the first time nor is it going to be the last time that happens. Our careers are going to intertwine until one of us is on a different brand or one of us decides to hang up their boots. It’s not a challenge that we’ve ever shied away from like some of these other couples on this company. Maybe, it’s because a majority of them aren’t as secure in their relationships as Cameron and I are. Maybe, their relationships are easier to break than our relationship. With most of the relationships in this company, you’ve only seen the adorable aspect. With Cameron and me? You see us from going adorable to ugly in a blink of an eye. That’s something that makes us more interesting. In this company, that’s what makes us more realistic, but is it realistic to see Cameron hold onto the Answers World Championship to Pain for Pride? Maybe, maybe not. Would I love to see her cling onto that championship? Of course, there is nothing more that brings a smile to my face than seeing my wife succeed — even if it was at the expense of me. It’s been a joy to see her conquer any obstacle thrown in her way. She’s one of the strongest people I know. She’ll be able to overcome whatever comes her way. I have full faith that she’ll be able to do that. She’s my entire world. She’s everything to me and it sounds fucking lame, but there’s nothing I wouldn’t do for her.
Kyra Phillips: I’m not crying. You are. :mjcry:
Jamie O’Hara: I wish I was drunk right now. :unamused:
Kyra Phillips: Seriously, talking about Under Siege. What were your thoughts on your match with Candice Blair?
Jamie O’Hara: Just to establish — Cameron made me raise Candice’s hand. Regardless of the match, Cameron told me to be nice to her little shit of a sister. If I had control, I would have left her hanging and exited out of the ring. Apparently, I’m just a nice guy after all. That match at Under Siege was an example for her to see what it’s like to go up against someone of my caliber. I hope after the match was said and done, Candice knows her place and it’s nowhere with the likes of me and her sister. I’m not going to lie, she held her own in this match. She’s as stubborn as any other Ava that I’ve been in the ring with. One of the most fucking annoying traits with that family. If that was something that that family has in common, it’s their stubborn nature. Perhaps, there is some potential in her, but it’s going to take a long time until she’s considered an all-time great. If she proved anything in the match, she’s not only stubborn but vicious too. I mean, she’s probably the reason why my meniscus is the way it is at the moment.
Kyra Phillips: Do you hold that against her?
Jamie O’Hara: There are bigger things to worry about than Candice Blair. I’ve already defeated her and proved that I was better than her. No need to drag this shit on. Although if Candice can stop sending me TikToks, that would be great, we all know that’s not going to happen anytime soon. :unamused:
Kyra Phillips: Jamie, it’s been lovely to sit down with you. I appreciate you for giving me your time. I wish you a speedy recovery and that you’ll be back in the ring as soon as possible —
(A vibrating sound goes off as Jamie O’Hara gets his phone from his back pocket, before looking at his phone.)
Jamie O’Hara: ANOTHER TikTok? Cameron, I fucking hate your sisters. :noah:
(Scene pans elsewhere.)
(Camera returns to the arena where we see the sea of cheering fans all around.)
(“People = Shit” by Slipknot hits as Shane Gates steps out onto the stage with Angela Grant at his side. Shane looks annoyed and immediately makes his way down towards the ring.)
Gina Romano: Ladies and gentlemen, the following contest is scheduled for…
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!
Gina Romano: Introducing first, making his way to the ring accompanied by Angela Grant… from Huntington Beach, California… weighing in at 213 pounds… SHANE GATES!!
(Camera cuts to show Jordan Payne already in the ring.)
Gina Romano: And his opponent, already in the ring from Coventry, England… weighing in at 242 pounds… JORDAN PAYNE!!
Eve: Payne was awfully silent this past week and Shane looks less than happy about his results after Under Siege. He truly believed he was walking away with the PURE Championship and instead he drew an early straw before getting his ass handed to him by Harlow!
Gavin Kirkland: Who cares? When’s the last time Shane Gates did anything remotely impressive?
Deadprez: Well with that look in his eyes, I’d say he’s looking to make an impression tonight! And he’s looking to take that frustration out on the newcomer Jordan Payne!
(Shane slides into the ring and rushes immediately for Jordan Payne, blasting him with elbows. In a panic, the referee calls for the bell.)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Eve: GATES TAKING IT RIGHT TO JORDAN PAYNE! SHOT AFTER SHOT CONNECTING AND HE ALREADY HAS PAYNE DAZED! GATES WITH A KNEE TO THE STOMACH! AND HE GRABS PAYNE BY THE HEAD! DDT! PAYNE IS PLANTED!
Deadprez: THAT AINT ALL! GATES TYING HIM UP! DOUBLE UNDERHOOK CROSSFACE! DECAPITATION! ITS LOCKED IN! PAYNE HAS NOWHERE TO GO! AND PAYNE TAPS OUT!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Gina Romano: Here is your winner by submission… SHANE GATES!!
Gavin Kirkland: :oh:
Eve: BUT GATES NOT RELEASING THE HOLD! TAKING OUT ALL OF HIS FRUSTRATIONS ON PAYNE! THE REFEREE GETTING INVOLVED NOW! PRYING GATES OFF OF JORDAN!! AND FINALLY HE RELEASES THE HOLD!
(Gates rolls off of the motionless Jordan Payne. Even Angela Grant is stunned on the outside as Gates is still seething, staring into the middle distance. He rolls out of the ring, not even acknowledging the world around him before marching up the ramp.)
Deadprez: Well we said he looked ready to do something tonight. But I don’t think any of us expected a mauling like that…
Gavin Kirkland: I don’t think he let Payne land a shot…
Eve: Shane Gates has had his ups and downs, but he should never be underestimated.
(Commercial for Yves Saint Lauren featuring Showdown’s own, Eve.)
(“Three Ain’t Enough” by Jim Johnston hits as Ring Master comes out to a standing ovation from the crowd. He slaps hands with some fans as he makes his way to the ring.)
Gina Romano: THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SET FOR ONE FALL! INTRODUCING FIRST…FROM SALISBURY, MARYLAND….WEIGHING IN AT THREE HUNDRED AND TWELVE POUNDS….TTTTHHEEE RRRINNNGG MMAASSSTTERRR!!!!
Eve: Gotta feel for him after Under Siege, he came up short in his rivalry with Ryan Wilson, but I know this man is more than capable of bouncing back. He has a chance tonight to knock off a former New Breed Champion!
(“Young and Bitter” by Hot Tag Media hits as Lucas walks out to a chorus of boos. He’s followed by Albert Hitchman.)
Gina Romano: AND HIS OPPONENT….FROM LONG ISLAND, NEW YORK….WEIGHING IN AT ONE HUNDRED AND NINETY SEVEN POUNDS….”THE WRESTLING MACHINE”….LLUUCCCAASSS JJOHHHNNNSSOOONN!!!!
Deadprez: Things haven’t gone to plan for Lucas since returning losing to Harlow twice for the PURE Championship, but tonight he can right the ship and get a win under his belt to gain some momentum for Grand Rampage!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Eve: Both competitors lock up in the center of the ring, both men are in need for a rebound win following Under Siege! And Lucas tries locking in a side headlock, but Ring Master manages to use his hundred pound weight advantage and frees himself out of it and he switches to Lucas’ backside and hits him with a back to belly suplex! Ring Master now has a bear hug on a grounded Lucas! Lucas is kicking his legs and trying whatever way he can to loosen the grip on his waist but Ring Master won’t let go!
Gavin Kirkland: Lucas rains down a few elbows on the crown of Ring Master’s head, and Ring Master lets go as Lucas uses his legs to throw Ring Master off of him! Both men are back up and Ring Master runs back to Lucas but Lucas counters him with a hip toss! Lucas follows it up with an elbow drop right into the heart of Ring Master! Lucas now picks up Ring Master quickly and drives an elbow right into the face of Ring Master causing Ring Master to stumble around the ring as Lucas follows him and throws a hard uppercut and Ring Master is on one knee, Lucas runs to the ropes but runs into a hard clothesline from Ring Master!
Eve: Ring Master now picks up Lucas and places him in the corner, and Ring Master connects with repetitive shoulder thrusts before grabbing Lucas’s arm and irish whips him into the opposite corner, but Lucas reverses it and sends Ring Master into the corner! Lucas charges at Ring Master but Ring Master got his boot up stopping Lucas dead in his track! Ring Master charges full steam to the ropes, BUT LUCAS CATCHES HIM WITH A SPINEBUSTER! HE COVERS!!
Deadprez: Ring Master kicks out and Lucas is wasting no time here! Lucas picks up Ring Master and tries setting up for suplex but Ring Master is blocking with his foot, and Ring Master picks up Lucas in the suplex position…and he tosses Lucas stomach first on the top rope and Lucas is dangling on the top rope in pain, and Ring Master runs at him and hits a knee right to the side of Lucas’ head causing Lucas to crumble to fall to the outside floor! Albert is trying his best to check on his client.
Eve: Ring Master steps to the outside and tries picking Lucas up but Lucas grabs ahold of Ring Master’s arm and pulls him back sending Ring Master shoulder first into the barricade! Lucas picks him up right away and irish whips him as hard as he can into the steel steps!! Lucas grabs Ring Master by the head and picks him up and rolls him back in the ring and Lucas slides back in slowly waiting for Ring Master to turn around…he kicks Ring Master in the midsection and is looking for the Swagger Bomb, but Ring Master twists out of it and connects with a belly to belly suplex!
Gavin Kirkland: Ring Master holds his arm as he approaches Lucas once again but Lucas goes low and grabs him by the waist and takes him to the mat with the gator roll, and he then transitions that into the crossface! The crossface from Lucas is locked in on Ring Master! Can Ring Master escape here?!
Eve: Ring Master is using his huge weight advantage and dragging himself to the ropes….but Lucas lets go of the hold and he tries dragging Ring Master to the center of the ring….but Ring Master tries pushing off with his legs again, but Lucas holds on and this time has the ankle lock applied!! RING MASTER IS REACHING FOR THE ROPES BUT I DON’T KNOW IF HE CAN GET THERE, IS HE GONNA SUBMIT HERE?!
Deadprez: RING MASTER ROLLS FORWARD REVERSING THE ANKLE LOCK SENDING LUCAS FACE FIRST INTO THE SECOND TURNBUCKLE! RING MASTER IS UP HOLDING HIS ANKLE NOW AND LUCAS TURNS AROUND–E-TRAIN!!! RING MASTER CAME IN WITH FULL FORCE TO HIT THAT SHOULDER TACKLE! RING MASTER LIFTS UP LUCAS AND PLACES HIM BETWEEN HIS LEGS, RING MASTER LIFTS HIM UP AND HAS A RUNNING START…SITOUT POWERBOMB!! IS THIS IT?!?!
Eve: LUCAS STAYS ALIVE! RING MASTER TRIES LIFTING UP LUCAS NOW BUT LUCAS HITS A HARD HEADBUTT!! RING MASTER STUMBLES BACK AND THROWS ANOTHER UPPERCUT!! LUCAS TAKES A FEW STEPS BACK–CLAYMORE KICK!! BUT RING MASTER CAUGHT HIM IN MID AIR, AND RING MASTER REPOSITIONS LUCAS IN A POWERSLAM POSITION, LUCAS IS TRYING TO FIND A WAY OUT OF THIS AS HE’;S FLAILING HIS ARMS….BUT–BIG ENDING!!!! RING MASTER COVERS!!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
(“Three Ain’t Enough” by Jim Johnston hits as Ring Master stands and gets his hand raised, Albert Hitchman looks from the outside disappointed.)
Eve: Big win here tonight for Ring Master and a great bounce back from Under Siege. He keeps this up, and the possibilities are endless for him. Tough loss for Lucas though, as he suffers another loss. I sure hope he can right the ship soon.
(The camera pans to Kathy Kush standing behind a Showdown backdrop. She has a smile on her face as she’s wearing a light pink turtleneck top and standard blue skinny jeans. She’s more than anxious to introduce her next guest.)
Kathy Kush: Under Siege was a fantastic event for the Showdown brand! The man next to me shocked the world by picking up a controversial victory over the Chairman of the Board, Mr. DEDEDE. Ladies and gentlemen, Xander Payne.
(The crowd begins to boo inside the arena. Xander Payne gets into the camera frame as he has a giant shit-eating smirk on his face. Xander is still on cloud nine following his victory over Mr. DEDEDE at Under Siege. He has a new wave of confidence within him. To him, it seems like no one can take him down. Nothing can stop his momentum.)
Kathy Kush: Xander, at Under Siege, you were successful in defeating Mr. DEDEDE, but it wasn’t without a bit of controversy —
(Xander Payne halts her.)
Xander Payne: — Controversy? Kathy, the entire world saw me defeat Ryan Adams one, two, three at Xander Siege. I initiated a cold-blooded war with Ryan Adams and I WON. Not many people thought that I would walk out of Xander Siege with my hand raised. Oh no, people thought that Ryan Adams was going to decimate me and get his so-called “revenge” on me. Even with his wench at his corner, he still failed to get the job done. She shouldn’t have done the one thing that women are good at doing and that was nothing at all. Hitting me with a potato? Who the fuck keeps potatoes underneath the ring? :mjlol: Like, what was her purpose out there other than to be something for men to ogle at and take away focus from the Match of the Year Match that I carried her sorry sack of a husband too? Women like Kassidy Heart are nothing more than a distraction. Nothing more than annoyance who should have stayed in the back and let MEN get the job done. At Xander Siege, I proved that I was better than Ryan Adams. Ryan Adams could not touch me in the ring. I beat down Ryan Adams for the FIFTH time. Is no one making that a point? I just did. Last Saturday, it ended the issues between Ryan Adams and myself. I am moving onto bigger and better things.
Kathy Kush: What are bigger and better things for you?
Xander Payne: The Answers World Championship. It’s time for me to take down the whore who has kept that title hostage since December.
Kathy Kush: You said that the issues between you and Mr. DEDEDE were over, but earlier tonight, Mr. DEDEDE defeated TNT to become the number one contender for the Answers World Championship. You do know that if you go after the Answers World Championship, you are going to cross paths with him again?
Xander Payne: I’m aware, Kathy, but I could care less. I’ve defeated Ryan Adams once and I’ll do it again. Is that supposed to scare me? Just because Ryan is going after the Answers World Championship, I need to put my aspirations on hold to the side so he can get his tenth World Championship reign or whatever? Honestly, I lost track of how many championships reigns this old bastard has. It’s probably around the number of men that Cameron Ella Ava has fucked throughout her career. It’s probably the number of men that Kassidy Heart is fucking right now. Just because Ryan has his eyes on becoming World Champion again doesn’t mean we all need to walk on broken eggshells because we’re afraid of him. What do I look like to you? Jamie O’Hara? The same man who’s been ducking Ryan Adams all season? No, I know what Ryan is capable of. There are a lot of people who would be afraid of facing him in a match, but I’m not one of them. I’ve taken down the old man five times already. A sixth time wouldn’t be out of the question for me. Ryan should be aware that it’s something that I am more than capable of doing. Kathy, I am going to be getting my Answers World Championship Match. I am going to Grand Rampage and I am going to become Answers World Champion.
(Xander Payne exits himself from the interview, leaving Kathy Kush by himself.)
Kathy Kush: Thank you for your time, Xander. Back to ringside.
Gina Romano: The following contest is scheduled for ONE Fall!
Crowd: ONE FALL!
Gina Romano: Introducing first, from Kingston Upon Thames, England! Weighing in at 200 Pounds! Here is Prince Dray Fontana!
(The lights go out in the arena. ‘Pure Water’ by Skepta hits the speakers to a choir of boos from the crowd. A flashing white light flickers in the arena until it turns back to black. The titantron reads ‘UNRULY X UNRIVALLED’ and a spotlight flashes down, Dray Fontana is in it with his eyes closed and his fingers in his ears, closing out the boos from the crowd.)
Deadprez: One of my favorites coming down to the ring, Dray Fontana, the Prince has been making waves and tonight we will see the match we have all been waiting for, after the blow up weeks ago in the four-way between Dray and Bronson Daniels.
Eve: I know that Dray has been patiently waiting and tonight we are going to see a war.
Gavin Kirkland: Dray is not in a good mood and that could spell bad news to the laid-back Bronson Daniels.
(He marches down to the ring. He gets up on the apron and raises his hands in the air before entering the ring. As he enters the ring, he gets to the middle of it and gets onto his knees and a spotlight shines down on him, he slams the mat three times and jumps up to his feet and points a finger gun at the crowd!)
Gina Romano: His opponent, from Cocoa Beach, Florida, weighing in at 217 pounds, he is Bronson Daniels!
(As “Pure Water” starts to die down, ‘Costa Rica’ by Dreamville, Bas & JID ft. Mez, Buddy, Jace, Reese LAFLARE, Ski Mask the Slump God, Smokepurpp & Guapdad 4000 begins to play around the arena as the crowd cheers. A chill Bronson Daniels comes out, fist-bumping the fans as he makes his way to the ring…)
Gina Romano: From Cocoa Beach, Florida, weighing in at 217 pounds, he is Bronson Daniels!
(Bronson all laid back, fist bumps some more before splitting into the ring, he starts to look around, giving the thumbs up to the fans.)
Deadprez: The laid back Bronson Daniels with a smile on his face, he looks to get some revenge on Dray for trying to shove Corn Dogs in his mouth.
Eve: I think he enjoyed it, all that smoking makes you hungry.
Gavin Kirkland: Don’t let all that fool you, he is one hell of a wrestler.
(The referee checks on both men, before he calls for the bell.)
(DING!!!!!!!! DING!!!!!!!!!!! DING!!!!!!!!!)
(Dray doesn’t even wait, quickly attacking Bronson with forearms and kicks, Bronson tries to cover up but it is of no use as he tries his best not to be overwhelmed. Dray is pulled by the referee, but he pushes him out of the way and starts beating him down some more.)
Deadprez: Dray Fontana is beating the stuffing out of Bronson right now, not giving him, a chance to even get situated and into this match! You can tell that Dray has been waiting a long time to get his hands on him! Dray is even pushing around the referee!
Eve: This is a smart yet desperate play on Dray to ground the talented Bronson Daniels right away! He doesn’t want Bronson to get his feet, he knows just how dangerous he is!
Gavin Kirkland: The Prince is taking no prisoners! He wants to finish this quick, so violent, it’s overwhelming Bronson! He doesn’t know what is going on! Dray grabs Bronson by the hair, snapmare over, a vicious kick to the upper back of Bronson! Another vicious kick to his midsection! Dray bounces off the ropes, a huge dropkick to the back of Bronson’s head! Dray going for a quick cover!
Deadprez: Kick out by Bronson! Dray is not letting off; he grinds the forearm right into the face of Bronson! Dray is being unrelenting! He picks up Bronson by the hair, whipping him into the corner! He hits a clothesline… NO! Bronson counters with a foot to the face! Dray stumbles back, Bronson with a Running Jumping Knee! Dray goes down! BRONSON WITH THE COVER!
Eve: Dray Kicks Out! Bronson is climbing the top rope already, the fans are going wild while Dray is trying to get up, he looks dazed and confused! Getting to his feet…. MISSILE DROPKICK! DRAY FLIES HALF-WAY ACROSS THE RING! Bronson waits until Dray gets back up, he goes for another running Knee, no! Dray turns, GERMAN SUPLEX! HE FOLDED BRONSON LIKE AN ACCORDION! Dray has taken over again, running at Bronson, locking him up for a Belly to Belly suplex! A quick cover!!!
Gavin Kirkland: SHOULDER UP BY BRONSON! Dray is not wasting any time, he grabs Bronson by the hair, ramming him right into the steel turnbuckle… NO! Bronson reverses! DRAY GOES SHOULDER FIRST INTO THE STEEL TURNBUCKLE! HE STUMBLES BACK…. BRONSON HOISTS HIM UP ON HIS SHOULDERS…. NIGHT NIGHT! WHAT A KNEE STRIKE! DRAY COULD BE OUT!
Deadprez: HE ISN’T GOING FOR A COVER! HE GRABS DRAY, ROUNDHOUSE KICK! DRAY IS DOWN AND STANDING MOONSAULT BY BRONSON! THIS ONE IS OVER!
Deadprez: SHOULDER UP BY DRAY! BRONSON IS IN SHOCK! HE CAN’T BELIEVE IT! THE REFEREE IS HOLDING TWO FINGERS UP! Bronson grabs Dray off the ground, a Double Underhook Piledriver…. NO! DRAY FLIPS BRONSON OVER BUT HE LANDS ON HIS FEET! ROUNDHOUSE KI… NO! DRAY DUCKS AND PELE KICK! HITS BRONSON ON THE HEAD! HE IS STAGGERING….. THE PARAMOUNT! WHAT A KNEE TO BRONSON AND HE DROPS TO THE GROUND! DRAY DROPS FOR THE COVER!
Eve: THIS TIME BRONSON KICKS OUT! AT THE VERY LAST SECOND! DRAY SLAMS THE MAT IN FRUSTRATION! YOU CAN SEE THAT HE IS NOT HAPPY WITH THE COUNT! HE IS ARGUING WITH THE REFEREE AND BRONSON IS GETTING UP!
Gavin Kirkland: Dray is beside himself; he turns around right into GUNSMOKE! THAT SPEAR TOOK DRAY DOWN! BRONSON POSITIONING DRAY, PICKING HIM UP, HE IS GOING FOR THE LAST SMOKE! HE HAS HIM UP, NO! DRAKE PLANT’S HIS FEET, HEADBUTT TO THE GROIN! THE REFEREE DIDN’T SEE IT! BRONSON STUMBLES BACK…. DRAY HITS ANOTHER PARAMOUNT!
Deadprez: HE HIT ALL THAT! THIS ONE IS OVER!
(Bronson puts his foot on the rope)
(Dray rolls Off and holds up his arms victorious but the referee notices Bronson’s foot on the rope.)
Deadprez: DRAY HAS THE PINFALL! HE BEATS BRONSON! WAIT…
Eve: THE REFEREE DROPS DRAY’S ARMS DOWN! HE IS TELLING HIM THAT BRONSON HAD HIS FOOT ON THE ROPES! LOOK AT DRAY’S FACE! HE GRABS THE REFEREE!
Gavin Kirkland: HE IS INCENSED! DRAY PINNED BRONSON! THE REFEREE MADE THE COUNT! NOW HE IS SAYING BRONSON’S FOOT WAS ON THE ROPES!
Eve: IT WAS GAVIN!
(Bronson gets up….)
Deadprez: BRONSON GETS UP…. SCHOOLBOY FROM BEHIND ON DRAY FONTANA!
(DING!!!!!!! DING!!!!!!! DING!!!!!!!)
Gina Romano: The winner of the match….. BRONSON DANIELS!!!!!
(‘Costa Rica’ by Dreamville, Bas & JID ft. Mez, Buddy, Jace, Reese LAFLARE, Ski Mask the Slump God, Smokepurpp & Guapdad 4000 plays throughout the arena as Bronson jumps out of the ring as the angered Dray Fontana tries to go after him and the referee!)
Gavin Kirkland: HIGHWAY ROBBERY!!!! DRAY WON THIS MATCH AND THE REFEREE STOLE IT FROM HIM!
Eve: No! He saw that he made a mistake and made it right! That was Dray’s fault for turning his back on Bronson! He took advantage and won this match!
Deadprez: The Prince looks like he is ready to kill someone! Both men came to fight but, in the end, Bronson snuck one out!
(Bronson smiles, fist-bumping fans as he makes his way up the ram shrugging his shoulders at an angry Dray Fontana who points at him furiously.)
(The camera pans backstage to see Alexis Chambers stretching before her match, and a familiar voice is heard as she rolls her eyes.)
???: Have you thought about my offer?
(Jake Smith enters the picture wearing his casual attire with the PURE Championship on his shoulder. He stands smiling at Alexis who has a look of concern.)
Alexis Chambers: Will you go away please?! Your psycho ass girlfriend already wants to kill me as it is, for you approaching ME! I don’t wanna be lying dead in a gutter somewhere.
Jake Smith: OHHHH Don’t worry about her! Me and her had a nice talk and I think I was able to calm her down and convince her nothing is going on between us.
Alexis Chambers: You’re damn right.
Jake Smith: :skip: But anyways, the offer?
Alexis Chambers: I told you at Under Siege already, no. I don’t need to be under anybody’s wing or hang out with anybody for career advancements. That’s not the type of competitor I am and not the way I wanna pay homage to lots of the greats of this business. Why in the world would I ever consider hanging around you?!
Jake Smith: sigh Alexis, you need me. I think both me and you know that. Under my guidance, you can become a champion. Without me, you’ll just fizzle out after the hype dies down of you being Terry’s younger sister. Look at you, nobody will ever take you seriously. Under my training and under my tutelage, you can be something great. We saw flashes of how good you can be at Under Siege, and that’s when I knew there was an opportunity for me to help someone out. If there’s anybody who knows anything about making an impact, it’s me. I was told I would be nothing more than Drake King’s lackey, and then a few weeks after being on my own, I won the PURE Championship, and right now here I stand a TWO TIME PURE Champion. We can relate when it comes to stepping out of shadow and making a name when nobody expected us to. You wanna stand by a champion.
Alexis Chambers: You have the belt, but you’re no champion.
(Jake Smith turns his head and chuckles.)
Jake Smith: Well, you’re about to go out there and face Santo, I could help you out. I’ve beaten him before. He’s a dangerous competitor. Think about what he can do to you. Remember what he did to Harlow, twice?
Alexis Chambers: Yes, and I don’t care. That’s the best thing about being new and facing someone you don’t know well enough. The element of surprise. You can only keep getting better and better. I don’t want to take any shortcuts like you have. The answer is still no, so please, before anything bad happens, leave.
Jake Smith: You’re making a mist-
Alexis Chambers: I would rather have my arm snapped than work with someone like you.
(Jake Smith places a hand on Alexis’ shoulder with a smile. Alexis angrily slaps his hand away.)
Alexis Chambers: DON’T…EVER…FUCKING…TOUCH…ME!
(Alexis walks out of the frame as Jake Smith’s worried face turns into a smile as he watches Alexis walk away. Jake Smith is all alone now in the scene)
Jake Smith: Go get em.
(Commercial break promoting New Breed Champion, Justin Windgate facing Voltage’s Jalyn Garcia at Grand Rampage on the EAW Network!)
(Showdown cuts to the ring where Gina is standing by.)
Gina Romano: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SCHEDULED FOR…
Crowd: ONE FALL!
(‘War’ by Dance With The Dead begins to play and the sold-out Brazilian crowd begins to boo. Santo Muerte appears on the stage and the animosity the crowd has for him is amped up another level.)
Gina Romano: INTRODUCING FIRST… FROM DEATH VALLEY, CALIFORNIA… WEIGHING IN AT 200 POUNDS… HE IS THE SAINT OF DEATH… SANTO MUERTE!!!
Gavin Kirkland: Oh boy. Here comes the man who made the biggest impression at Under Siege! Santo Muerte might not have left Argentina with the PURE Championship, but he definitely had a hand in helping Thicclow lose it :noah:
Eve: You know Santo is bitter over what happened last weekend. He did all that work to make sure he had Harlow Reichert worn down, only to come up short against her and then watch Jake Smith pick up the pieces. Santo didn’t bite his tongue this week, and he remains as angry as ever at EAW.
Deadprez: I’m afraid Santo might try and take his anger out on his opponent tonight, the talented newcomer Alexis Chambers. I’ll be curious to see how Alexis handles herself tonight.
(Santo slides into the ring and gets ready for the match, and his music fades out. ‘Walking the Wire’ by Imagine Dragons begins to play and all the jeers for Santo turn to cheers for the aforementioned Alexis.)
Gina Romano: AND HIS OPPONENT… FROM DETROIT, MICHIGAN… WEIGHING IN AT 117 POUNDS… SHE IS THE MOTOR CITY GODDESS… ALEXIS CHAMBERS!!!
(Alexis runs out, all smiles and full of energy. She poses for the crowd and begins to make her way down to the ring.)
Eve: Alexis is another Elitist who came up short last weekend in a huge title match. She faced off against Harper Lee and Raven Roberts for the Universal Women’s Champion, but ended up taking the pin in that match. Despite that, Alexis surprised a lot of people with her gutsy performance.
Gavin Kirkland: A lot of people are saying that Alexis could be a champion one day, and if you ask me, I completely agree! She’s spunky and I like that :mjlit:.
Deadprez: Like I said though, I fear Santo is going to take his frustration from last week out on Alexis tonight. It’s going to be a tough challenge for her, and I guess we’re going to see if she can rise to the occasion.
(Alexis slides into the ring and signals she is ready for the match. The referee calls for the bell.)
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Gavin Kirkland: FIERY LITTLE ALEXIS WASTES NO TIME RUNNING AT SANTO AND LOOKS TO CONNECT WITH A KNEE STRIKE!
Eve: :damn: BUT SANTO GETS HIS FOOT UP AND CRACKS ALEXIS RIGHT IN THE FACE! SHE HITS THE GROUND LIKE A TON OF BRICKS AND SANTO IS QUICK TO STRIKE! HE BEGINS ASSAULTING ALEXIS WITH THOSE BRUTAL KICKS TO THE RIBS AND ARMS! HE STOMPS ON HER STOMACH AND CHEST, AND MAKES SURE TO STRIKE HER IN THE HEAD AS WELL! ALEXIS IS UNABLE TO DEFEND HERSELF AND SANTO RIPS HER OFF THE MAT BY THE HAIR AND VIOLENTLY TOSSES HER INTO THE CORNER! ALEXIS STRIKES THE TURNBUCKLES AND SLUMPS INTO A SITTING POSITION! SANTO SLAMS HIS KNEE RIGHT INTO HER NOSE AND STRIKES HER IN THE TEMPLE WITH ANOTHER!
Deadprez: JESUS CHRIST! SANTO PULLS THE FEISTY COMPETITOR UP AND NAILS HER WITH AN UPPERCUT! ALEXIS’ HEAD JUST SNAPPED BACK AND SANTO SLAMS HIS KNEE INTO HER GUT AND TAKES HER DOWN WITH A STANDING DROPKICK! SANTO DROPS DOWN FOR THE COVER!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: Alexis gets her shoulder up but I don’t know how well that’s gunna settle with Santo. He’s very quick to go right back to work and Alexis eats a dozen or so strikes right to the face! The referee is ordering Santo to back off because he wants to check on Alexis, but Santo shoves him out of the way! He picks Alexis up, lifts her high above his head, and just drops her right across the top rope! Alexis falls to the mat and Santo drops down for another cover!
Eve: Alexis gets her shoulder up again!
Deadprez: Santo slowly drags Alexis up by the hair and throws her across the ring. Alexis hits the ropes and Santo catches her on the rebound! He nails Alexis with a belly-to-back suplex! Santo immediately goes for the arm, locking Alexis in an armbar!!!
Gavin Kirkland: NO! She managed to avoid it and roll out of the ring! That’s exactly what she needs to do because we all know Santo is going to go for the kill tonight. He’s pissed after what happened at Under Siege and unfortunately it’s Alexis who finds herself across from him tonight. Right now, Alexis is trying to regroup on the outside of the ring but look at Santo! SANTO GOES FLYING OVER THE TOP ROPE WITH A TOPE CON HILO!!!!!
Eve: BUT HE MISSES!!!! ALEXIS MOVED OUT OF THE WAY AND SANTO CRASHED ON THE FLOOR! ALEXIS IMMEDIATELY BEGINS ASSAULTING HIM WITH HER FISTS! SHE IS DOWN ON HER KNEES AND BEATING THE HELL OUT OF SANTO! ALEXIS GRABS HIM UP AND SHE THROWS HIM BACK FIRST INTO THE APRON OF THE RING! SANTO IS GRIPPING HIS LOWER BACK AND ALEXIS UNLEASHES SEVERAL KICKS TO SANTO’S CHEST!!! SHE NAILS HIM WITH A STIFF RIGHT HAND TO THE FACE AND TAKES HIM DOWN TO THE FLOOR WITH A BULLDOG!!! ALEXIS GRABS SANTO AND STRUGGLE ROLLS HIM BACK INTO THE RING!
Deadprez: THAT TOOK A LITTLE EXTRA TIME BUT ALEXIS HAS HOOKED THE LEG FOR THE COVER!!!
Gavin Kirkland: Easy kickout for Santo!
Eve: Alexis is not deterred! She immediately pushes Santo onto his stomach and locks him in a crossface! Alexis has that submission locked in and she wrenches back on Santo’s neck with all of her strength! Santo reaches for the ropes, but Alexis stands her ground! Santo has no choice but to try and make his way to the ropes because Alexis is not about to let go of this hold! She is hanging on, but Santo is much bigger and stronger! He pushes himself up with his free arm and begins to inch his way to the ropes!
Deadprez: His movement is disrupting Alexis’ momentum because she’s losing her grip! Santo senses this and he reaches up and latches onto Alexis’ fingers! He starts bending them back and Alexis has no choice but to let go of the hold! Santo rolls away from her but Alexis is quickly back up to her feet! She flies towards Santo and connects with a running knee right as he is about to get back up and she’s got him trapped in the corner now! Alexis strikes Santo once again with her knee and takes a hold of the ropes! She presses her foot against Santo’s throat and starts choking him, which forces the referee to step in and start counting!
Referee: ONE… TWO… THREE… FOUR…
Gavin Kirkland: Alexis releases the choke but she quickly nails Santo upside the head with a shoot style kick! She drags him out of the corner and quickly goes to the top rope! I think Alexis is looking for the ‘Heart Stopper’ guys!
Eve: YES! Alexis soars through the air with that elevated moonsault and she lands right on top of Santo! Alexis hooks the leg for the cover!!!
Deadprez: Santo kicks out!
Eve: Alexis knows she has to stay on Santo, though! She mounts him and begins wailing away on him! Santo eats those rapid rights and lefts from Alexis but he is finally able to seize her and throw her off! Alexis lands in the ropes but she forces herself back up and attacks Santo as he is getting up! Alexis with hammerfisted shots to the back of Santo, forcing him into the corner! Santo finally fights back with an elbow that catches Alexis right in the side of the head, and Santo is able to whip around and grab her, and throw her back first into the corner! Santo nails her with a devastating right hand and follows it up with another brutal looking uppercut that snaps Alexis’ neck back! He punches her in the stomach, knocking the wind out of her, and he brings her down with a snap suplex!
Deadprez: Santo immediately goes for Alexis’ arm once again but she quickly starts to fight him! Santo is trying to lock in the armbar but Alexis has managed to fight her way to the ropes and grab the bottom one! The referee is telling Santo he has to let go, but the Saint of Death doesn’t want to listen! He is still trying to force Alexis into the armbar and the referee begins to count!
Referee: ONE… TWO… THREE… FOUR… FI-
Gavin Kirkland: Santo finally relents and Alexis immediately pulls herself out of the ring! She drops to her knees on the ground, and Santo heads out after her! Alexis quickly races around the ring and slides in, with Santo hot on her heels! But that allows Alexis to catch him as he gets back in the ring! Alexis is stomping on Santo’s back but he is able to fight through her flurry of offense and climb back to his feet! He seizes Alexis by the neck and slams her into the corner! Santo backs up and then runs at Alexis looking for a corner clothesline! Alexis gets her feet up and catches Santo on the jaw! Santo stumbles back and Alexis scrambles up the ropes! Alexis launches herself off BUT SANTO CATCHES HER! SANTO HAS ALEXIS!!!!
Eve: SANTO TRANSITIONS ALEXIS INTO A BEARHUG AND HE IS SQUEEZING THE LIFE OUT OF HER! THE REFEREE IS ASKING ALEXIS IF SHE WANTS TO GIVE UP BUT SHE SHAKES HER HEAD! SANTO TIGHTENS HIS ARMS AROUND ALEXIS AND HE BEGINS TO RAGDOLL HER! HE IS SHAKING ALEXIS FROM SIDE TO SIDE AND FINALLY LETS HER DROP TO THE GROUND! ALEXIS IS CLUTCHING HER RIBS BUT SANTO IS DOWN ON THE MAT! HE GRABS ALEXIS AND QUICKLY LOCKS HER IN A MODIFIED SURFBOARD STRETCH!!!
Deadprez: Santo’s got his knees planted firmly in Alexis’ back right now and he is pulling back on her arms! This compresses the shoulder blades and could very well help soften Alexis up for ‘The Offering’ which you know Santo is going to want to bring out sometime in this match!
Eve: You have to admire the heart and the fight of Alexis Chambers, though! She is refusing to give in as the referee checks on her, and she’s doing what she can to use her legs to power out of this! Santo is absolutely not letting go of this, so it’s up to ‘The Motor City Goddess’ to find her way out of this.
Gavin Kirkland: Alexis gunna have to use them thighs to power herself up. She’s got her feet under her and starts to force her way back up. Santo follows her up, maintaining control of her arms, but Alexis is able to use her feet to kick at his legs, forcing him to let her go! He quickly grabs her by the wrist, but Alexis somersaults through the wristlock attempt and finds herself with a slight advantage right now! She works over Santo’s wrist, but he quickly snatches her by the hair and slings her down onto the mat! Alexis hit the back of her head, but Santo doesn’t give her a chance to recover! He pulls her up… ‘DEATH VALLEY DESTROYER’!!! The front flip piledriver connects and Santo goes for the cover on Alexis!!!!
Deadprez: ALEXIS KICKS OUT!
Eve: Wow! I thought for sure Santo had the match won right there, but Alexis Chambers continues to fight on during this match! Alexis might be new to this sport, but she is determined to become the best possible wrestler that she can be! The more experience Alexis gets under her belt, the better she is going to be, and this match is proving how tough she is!
Gavin Kirkland: Being tough and being smart are two entirely differently things, and Alexis might really want to think about the bigger picture right now. Believe me, I like a fighter :mjlit: but you gotta pick and choose your battles! Right now, Alexis is fighting one I don’t believe she can win, and the last thing I wanna see tonight, is another one of our Saturday night delights going on injured reserve thanks to this masked bozo.
Deadprez: Santo has dragged Alexis to the ropes and is using them to choke her right now! He’s got her head wrapped up in the ropes and he is uncorking some stiff looking forearms to the back of her skull right now! The referee has to pull Santo away from the ropes and he untangles Alexis, but as soon as she is free, Santo runs and strikes her right in the side of the head! Alexis looks to be out but Santo isn’t going for the victory! He pulls her to the center of the ring and begins stomping on her arm and shoulder! He jerks Alexis up by the hair and so she’s in a sitting position and he applies a shoulder claw! That claw is used to compress the nerves in the shoulder and he forces Alexis onto her back while he continues to torture her!
Eve: Alexis kicks out, but Santo still has that nerve lock applied! Alexis is trying to pry his hands away but Santo slams his fist into her face! Alexis goes limp and that allows Santo to get her in the grounded hammerlock position and go for the inverted armbar!
Gavin Kirkland: NO! Those are not the kinds of screams I like to hear coming from someone as cute as Alexis Chambers :noah:!!! Someone get that monster off of her!
Deadprez: Alexis is refusing to give up but her screams are deafening! Santo is going to snap her arm and the referee needs to step in make a decision right now!
Eve: :lupe: Alexis isn’t going to tap out but I think the pain is getting to be too much for her. She ain’t fighting anymore. Infact, I think she might be out.
Gavin Kirkland: Call it, damn.
(The referee drops down and checks on Alexis, and determines she is indeed out. He signals for the bell and immediately orders Santo to release ‘The Offering’.)
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Gina Romano: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… HERE IS YOUR WINNER… SANTO MUERTE!
(The crowd begins to boo as the referee has to physically pull Santo off of Alexis. ‘War’ by Dance With the Dead begins to blast across the PA system, and Santo slowly gets to his feet. He snatches his hand away from the referee and simply gets out of the ring, not even bothering to survey the damage he did to Alexis Chambers.)
Deadprez: Dominating victory tonight by Santo Muerte but Alexis Chambers showed her heart. There will be plenty of matches for Alexis in the future, but tonight belonged to Santo.
Eve: I’m not really thrilled with how long the referee let the match go on, and I really hope that no lasting damage has been done to Alexis’ arm. Pain for Pride season is just getting underway and every Elitist in this company wants to impress and get themselves in the conversation for a spot on the card. Alexis is no different and I hope she is okay.
Gavin Kirkland: The referee should be fired for leaving Alexis in that position for so long. Let’s hope that she’s able to get right back into the ring.
(The camera takes another shot of Santo as he makes his way up the ramp. The deadly Elitist is no doubt on a mission and looking to take his anger out on anyone who gets in his way. Showdown fades to commercial break.)
(Commercial break promoting Grand Rampage and the thirty man and woman Grand Rampage live on the EAW Network!)
(Showdown returns from commercial break as Alexis Chambers is seen walking backstage following her loss against Santo Muerte. Despite the result, she was thrilled about the performance she put out there; however, she could not help, but feel bummed about the result of the match. It was something that she could have used to redeem herself from Under Siege. Alexis is clutching the arm that Santo Muerte applied ‘The Offering’ on, making her pass out in the process. in disappointment before stopping at her tracks, staring angrily at something in front of her.)
Alexis Chambers: WHEN WILL YOU ACCEPT THAT NO MEANS NO?
(Jake Smith is revealed to be the person that Alexis Chambers is screaming at. He holds his hands up in defense, not wanting any of the backlash that she’s more than likely to give him. Alexis tries to calm herself down.)
Jake Smith: Great match, but…
Alexis Chambers: I lost. Yeah, Santo Muerte made me pass out. I get it, Jake. No need to remind me of what I wasn’t able to do out there, but I’ll get past this. Just like I was able to get past Under Siege. One of the admirable things that Terry’s always done was not let victories get the best of him. He uses them as a way to get better and prevent himself from making the same mistakes that he did in the match.
Jake Smith: Terry’s a loser, Alexis. I’m not going to accept no as an answer for you. I’m not going to let you waste your career away like your brother did for a good chunk of his career. You’re not your brother. From your performance earlier, you don’t wrestle like your brother. There is potential in you that hasn’t been brought out and I feel like by being under my tutelage, I can see all of that changing. Alexis, just give me a chance. Give this little alliance between the two of us and I will help you take this brand by storm.
Alexis Chambers: I’m not taking shortcuts and I’m going to do things my way.
Jake Smith: I’ll only advise you on taking opportunities and making a name for yourself in any way possible. For starters, you can watch and learn how I roll in the ring. Maybe, you can pick up a few things from me. I am going over to Jenny Punk’s office to have her put me in a match against Santo Muerte.
Alexis Chambers: Are you kidding me? That guy hates you with a passion! He’ll kill you! Did you see what he did to me just now?
Jake Smith: I’ve defeated him before, Alexis. Next week, I am going to defeat Santo Muerte again. I want you at my corner watching this match and you’ll see how I’ll win a match.
Alexis Chambers: Alrightie, but this is just me underneath your wing. I don’t need your psycho girlfriend harassing me on social media again.
Jake Smith: Once you get to know her, she’s really not psycho. She’s actually really nice.
Alexis Chambers: :usure:
Jake Smith: Don’t give me that look Seriously, I gotta get to Jenny’s office, but I will see you after the show! This is gonna be great!
(Alexis Chambers gives a fake smile of enthusiasm and nods at him. Jake Smith walks to the other direction. Alexis looks at the direction that Jake walked away from. Either this little alliance between the two of them was going to be the worst thing ever and she ends up killing him or it’s going to be the best thing ever for her career. At this moment, it all seems unclear to her. Camera fades to ringside.)
(“Children of the Son” by Pipe Choir plays through the speakers. The crowd gives a standing ovation to the woman, who successfully cashed in her Iconic Cup on Under Siege last Saturday. Minerva walks out with the Universal Women’s Championship on her shoulder. Minerva is dressed in a lace crop top paired with some black skinny jeans and platform boots. She makes her way down the entrance ramp before stopping midway. A smirk forms at the corner of her lips as she raises the championship high in the air. In cue, black and purple pyro goes off in the background, which makes the EAW Universe scream out of their fucking minds.)
Gina Romano: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN…PLEASE WELCOME AT THIS TIME…THE NEW ELITE ANSWERS WRESTLING UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPION … “THE GYPSY MOTH” … MIIIIIIIINNNNNNNNNEEEEEEEERRRRRRRRRRRRVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!
Eve: That young woman shocked the world last weekend at Under Siege by cashing in the Iconic Cup on former champion, Raven Roberts following her Triple Threat Match against Alexis Chambers and Harper Lee.
Deadprez: On the latest edition of Voltage, Raven Roberts informed everyone that she is challenging Minerva for the Universal Women’s Champion at Grand Rampage? Do you think that Minerva is going to accept the challenge?
Gavin Kirkland: Does it REALLY matter? Raven Roberts is going to get her match regardless, but it should be interesting to see what’s in Minerva’s mind for the first time since winning the title?
(The camera pans to Minerva already in the ring as she raises the Universal Women’s Championship above her head. She goes over the Gina Romano and gets her microphone before shooing her away from the ring. “Children of the Son” dies down. Minerva takes in the reception of the crowd. The crowd breaks into a “YOU DESERVE IT” chant. Minerva lets the chants go on for a moment or two.)
Minerva: You’re damn right. I deserve this but thank you for informing me of what I already know. There’s no denying that I deserve everything that I have ever earned. I deserved the Unified Tag Team Championship. I deserve the Iconic Cup and most importantly, I deserve the Universal Women’s Championship. It’s not because I was a good little trooper. It’s not because I kissed the right amount of ass or slept with the right people. I wasn’t the typical barbie or divas of this company. I didn’t have gorgeous blonde hair, implants or sun-kissed skin. Look at me, I am the complete opposite of what people expect in a female Elitist. There were times where I doubted myself and whether I would find any success in this company. Don’t get me wrong; I was fully confident in my skills. In my black heart, I believed that I was the best Elitist on the Empire brand. Although, I wondered if my appearance was going to be the one thing that held me back from gaining the opportunities that I desired. It motivated me to bust my ass. I would have loved nothing more than for my accomplishments to be a giant middle finger to the high ups, who tried to hold me down. Winning the Universal Women’s Championship was a surreal moment for me. It was the ultimate middle finger to anyone who doubted me. There were a few people who didn’t believe I would make it to this point, but I proved that I didn’t need to be the gorgeous blonde. I didn’t need to be the person throwing “ethers” left and right in order to get a pop from the crowd. Most importantly, I didn’t need to be anyone who brown-nosed her way to this championship. I picked the perfect time and place. People didn’t expect me to cash in the Iconic Cup so soon, but I love surprises. :mjgrin:
Minerva: I suppose this is the part where I am supposed to thank people for helping me reach this point? In EAW, there weren’t many people who helped me reach this point. I did everything myself. Going into this company, I was nothing more than a loner. I normally aligned with people in order to get what I wanted; however, there was one woman, who changed that entire mindset of mine. That’s my sister, my other half, the heaven to my hell, Constance Blevins. Last Saturday, Constance and I fought tooth and nail in order to retain the Unified Tag Team Championships. While doing that, Constance landed on her ankle a way that it’s not supposed to go. One of the most heartbreaking sounds was her crying in pain, trying to fight back tears. We went to the trainer’s room and we learned that Constance had shattered her ankle. The recovery for this injury is going to take at least six weeks, but to regain muscle and movement in that ankle is going to vary. Now, I’m unsure if Constance’s season is over or if she’ll somehow make her return and stand by my side. Constance is a fighter. She is one of the strongest people I know and I have no doubt that she’s not going to let this injury stop her. Constance assured me that her injury wasn’t going to stop her from getting back inside the squared circle. Just like it shouldn’t stop me from becoming the best I can be in EAW. She assured me that if I cashed in the Iconic Cup and became champion, it was never going to stop our bond. She will still love me regardless and support me while she’s on the sidelines. At that moment, I knew that I could cash in and two matches later, I did.
(Minerva looks towards the camera.)
Minerva: Connie, I hope that you’re at home recovering. Scratch that, you better be recovering at home because I would love nothing more than for you to make your return and raise hell in this company with me. Lay off the ankle, elevate it and ice it.
(Minerva now turns her attention back to the EAW Universe.)
Minerva: I said that I wasn’t going to make it sappy, but Constance brings that side of me every now and then. Now, it’s time that we get a bit serious around here. Grand Rampage is around the corner. Last year, I found myself in the final five of the Women’s Grand Rampage. This year, I find myself standing on top of the women’s division. The way it should be. Just twenty-four hours after winning the championship, Raven Roberts demanded a match against me at Grand Rampage. I can’t blame her. She wasn’t expecting for Under Siege to be the last time that she clutched onto the Universal Women’s Championship. After I took this championship from her, she seems so determined to get the championship back. She said that a new spark lit in her. She would love nothing more than to call herself a two-time Universal Women’s Championship. I listened to her promo on Voltage REALLY closely. In her mind, it seems like she is determined to get her rematch regardless of what happens. She’s right about something — I am going to be a fighting champion. Who would I be to deny Raven of a rematch for the Universal Women’s Championship? Raven Roberts is going to be the perfect example of how this reign of mine is going to be. It’s going to be me running through all the competition that steps up to me. I’m not afraid of Raven Roberts. If she wants a shot at me at Grand Rampage? Well, I accept.
(The crowd pops in a major announcement!)
Eve: Minerva accepts Raven Roberts’ challenge at Grand Rampage for the Universal Women’s Championship!
Gavin Kirkland: This match is going to steal the show!
Minerva: I would love nothing more than to crush Raven’s aspirations of ever getting this championship back. This reign of mine is not going to be short-lived at all. She doesn’t need to worry about this championship not being elevated to the standard that she claims that she did during her reign. No, I’m aware of what the bar for the Universal Women’s Championship is. I can assure Raven and everyone else that the bar is going to get surpassed when I reign becomes one of the best in the lineage of that champion. Once I take down Raven, I will be on the perfect path to accomplish that. This championship is going to take me to Pain for Pride. I can promise you and everyone that.
(Minerva drops the microphone before raising the Universal Women’s Championship above her head. “Children of the Son” plays once again as Minerva celebrates in the ring.)
Deadprez: Well, there you have it. Minerva claims that the Universal Women’s Championship is going to take her to Pain for Pride. That’s a bold proclamation from the champion, but judging how her Unified Tag Team Championship reign went, I don’t think that will be impossible for her to accomplish.
(The scene pans to Showdown General Manager, Jenny Punk in her office. Ahren Fournier stands next to her as the two of them had been watching this whole edition of Showdown. Following the events of Under Siege, Jenny had invited The ILLIONAIRES into her office. She had placed an unofficial stipulation that if The ILLIONAIRES were unsuccessful in capturing the Answers World Championship, she would consider who she invests her time and energy on. Throughout the show, Jenny had been completely silent. As the show went on, Jenny’s silence made him uncomfortable because he knew that she was pissed off.)
Ahren Fournier: Jennifer, you know how much I hate this silence between the two of us. Please say something.
(Jenny Punk turns to her side to look at Ahren Fournier. A fake smile forms on her face.)
Jenny Punk: What do you want me to say, Ahren? I’m only going to give you the same bullshit lecture that I’ve given the two of you since January. At least, you had the balls to still show your face. I’ve been trying to contract Chris all week and no response for him — which is basically what his showing most of last week was. Ahren, you had an amazing showing in the match. You really did all you could. Looking at this Triple Threat, it’s quite obvious who is holding The ILLIONAIRES down and that’s Chris Elite. Don’t get me wrong, you had your moments too. The reason why I said nothing when Chris wanted to make this match a Triple Threat. I wanted to see how the two of you respond with a huge opportunity such as an Answers World Championship Match went. You did well. Chris, on the other hand, well…
Ahren Fournier: Don’t say that, Jenny. That’s my partner. Don’t let this loss let you think of The ILLIONAIRES any differently. Besides, if it was Chris here instead of me, you’d be taking shit about me. :unamused:
Jenny Punk: That’s beside the point, Ahren. :unamused:
Ahren Fournier: SO IT IS TRUE?
Jenny Punk: Ahren, what I am trying to say is this: the ILLIONAIRES are nothing more than busts that got to cocky when they got a victory over two Hall of Famers. Since then, it’s been going downhill for the two of you. I’ve always done my best to give as best of advice as possible, but I would advise you to drop this idea of getting a Triple Crown status for the time being. You and Chris need to part ways and do your own things. Will you two be separate forever? Will the two of you reunite again? That’s up for the two of you. I would advise you to rebuild some of the credibility that the two of you lost during these past few months. With Pain for Pride season around the corner, you two need to find your way onto the card, but I don’t see that in a Unified Tag Team Championship Match. I’ve been considering on who I am investing my time and energy on and I’ve made the tough decision to —
???: I hope I’m not interrupting anything!
(Ryan Wilson joins in the camera shot with a giant grin on his face. He is feeling quite cheery after defeating The RingMaster at Under Siege. A new wave of confidence rushes through him as Ahren Fournier and Jenny Punk looked annoyed as hell. Jenny hates the idea of anyone interrupting her and Ryan is not making things easy for her.)
Jenny Punk: May I help you?
Ryan Wilson: Actually, I’m only here to pass a message to you, Jenny.
Jenny Punk: Is it from Chris Elite?
Ryan Wilson: No, it’s from Ryan Adams.
(Jenny Punk raises her brow as Ryan Wilson continues.)
Ryan Wilson: Ryan Adams, our Chairman of the Board and I have been in contact for about a few weeks now. I’m surprised that he went to me out of all people about certain matters in this company. We talked about what EAW should do concerning the COVID-19 situation. We talked about whether we should be shutting down all EAW productions during this troubling time. We talked about specific brands and how they’re operated. Eventually, Showdown was brought up during that little conversation. Ryan asked me for my input when it comes to how Showdown has been running and I gave him my professional and honest opinion. The opinion was this: we both agree that you haven’t been running the show as great as you were at the beginning of the season. It seems like since the whole thing with The ILLIONAIRES, Showdown has taken a backseat. Showdown almost seems like a side job with you. Ryan Adams and I agreed that Showdown deserves a lot better than what you have been doing to it.
Jenny Punk: That’s absolute bullshit. I’ve made Showdown the A-brand of this company. I’ve separated Showdown from the shit-talking and laziness on the Dynasty brand. I’ve separated Showdown from the deathmatches and unpredictability on the Voltage brand. I have done everything in my power to make sure that Showdown is able to stay out of the negative press while providing everyone with the best action possible. If Ryan Adams can’t see that, then screw him.
Ryan Wilson: Unfortunate for you, Ryan Adams doesn’t see that. I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but…
(Ryan Wilson pulls something from his back pocket as it’s revealed to be a pink slip before handing it to Jenny Punk.)
Jenny Punk: Are you kidding me?
Ryan Wilson: Jennifer Punk, your services on Showdown are no longer needed. You’re fired.
(The crowd pops to a mixed reception from the crowd as Jenny Punk’s jaw drops to the floor. It was full of heartbreak and shock. Jenny leaves the camera shot, almost embarrassed and wanting to cry. Ahren Fournier has a steamed look on his face. As much as Jenny got on his case a lot, there’s no denying that he was thankful for everything that Jenny invested her time and energy — even if he wasn’t the best person to work with at times. Ryan Wilson chuckles, feeling empowered a bit. )
Ahren Fournier: You can’t fire her! We’ll sue!
Ryan Wilson: Yeah, I don’t believe that one bit, Ahren.
Ahren Fournier: I am a steamed wonton right now. If Jenny’s fired, who the hell is running Showdown now?
Ryan Wilson: You’re looking at him.
(Ahren Fournier looks at Ryan Wilson, who has not removed that smirk on his face. Ahren is confused at the moment.)
Ahren Fournier: We’re just handing jobs to ANYONE now?
Ryan Wilson: I would think about what you say to me, Ahren. I got a little more power than I did before.
(Ahren Fournier opens his mouth, ready to rant and pauses. In a way, Ryan Wilson is right. He does have more power now and anything that Ahren says can be used against him. Ahren closes his mouth but maintains that steamed look on his face before leaving the office. Ryan is left by himself in the office that once belonged to Jenny Punk.)
Ryan Wilson: It seems like I’m going to have a bit of fun with all of this power.
(EAW logo buzzes.)
