(EAW intro plays.)
(PREVIOUSLY ON SHOWDOWN…)
(It pans to the segment with Candice Blair, looking at Jamie O’Hara’s match at King of Elite and pinpointing the one moment, where the match was over for him. Cameron Ella Ava comes into the scene and tells Candice that she told Jamie not to lay a hand on her until Under Siege. She also tells Candice about how she shouldn’t try to advance her career at the expense of Jamie’s which was the same mistake Cameron made in 2016 and it bit her in the ass. It forwards to Candice Blair versus The Ring Master with Ryan Wilson and Jamie O’Hara ringside. It goes to Ryan being extra in the match and accidentally bumps into Jamie. There’s a collision that occurs at ringside as Candice exits the ring and delivers a knee strike to Ryan, but ends up nailing Jamie. Somehow, Candice manages to get the victory, but it’s short-lived as she and Jamie have a staredown. He vows that it’s going to be his knee against her skull at Under Siege.)
(It transitions to Xander Payne backstage at catering, where he is confronted by Mr. DEDEDE who claims that he forgives Xander for everything that he’s done to him, but Xander doesn’t by it and claims that it’s nothing more than mind games. Xander claims that DEDEDE doesn’t respect him, but at Under Siege, DEDEDE will respect him. DEDEDE tells Xander to be careful of all the promises he’s making. DEDEDE claims that Xander has never truly faced fear because he’s never had a reason, but DEDEDE is going to be that reason. The last words that DEDEDE says that if Xander pushes him, he will make his life a living hell.)
(It forwards to a tag team match with Heavenly Hell versus Santo Muerte and Lance Blackfyre. We see the tension between Santo and Lance while we see the amazing chemistry from Heavenly Hell, who takes advantage of the tension between Santo and Lance. It pans towards the end of the match. Lance tags himself into the match just when Santo looks like he’s close to ending the match and Santo responds by snapping Lance’s arm back. Santo leaves the match, which leaves Heavenly Hell to beat down Lance. It ends with Minerva connecting with Owl of Minerva to make Lance pass out, delivering a message to Drake King and The Visual Prophet.)
(It pans to backstage with Alexis Chambers warming up for her number one contender’s match against Harper Lee. She’s interrupted by Jake Smith, who tells her that she better not blow this opportunity because it could be the last one that she gets. He assures Alexis that she’s not like her brother and believes that Alexis has a shot of winning the match. He also wants to be the reason why she proves Terry Chambers wrong. Alexis ends the conversation by telling him that he’s no doing any favors by bringing her up and she sees that becoming Universal Women’s Champion as a way to step out of Terry’s shadow. Jake wishes Alexis good luck, but Lance Blackfyre appears in the scene and tells him that he was sick of all the women holding the titles on Showdown, so he decided to go to Jenny Punk to let him in the PURE Gauntlet match at Under Siege. Jake sarcastically praises Lance and tells him that his days as PURE Champion are over and he has a main event match to get too.)
(Highlights of Alexis Chambers versus Harper Lee is seen. We see an amazing contest between two of the brightest women on the brand. It pans forward to the end of the match, where Harper German suplexes Alexis off the top rope and holds her there for the cover, but Alexis manages to get Harper’s shoulders down as well, leaving the match without a clear winner. Jenny Punk comes out and tells Gina Romano something and it’s that Alexis Chambers and Harper Lee will both move on to face Raven Roberts for the Universal Women’s Championship at Under Siege.)
(A segment with The ILLIONAIRES and Shaker Jones is seen. Both Ahren Fournier and Chris Elite reveal their aspirations of winning the Answers World Championship and then the Unified Tag Team Championships. The ILLIONAIRES hype themselves up as a team that no one has been able to defeat cleanly. They are still the hottest tag team in this company despite all the losses.)
(It transitions to the main event with The ILLIONAIRES taking on Jake Smith and Xander Payne. We see highlights of the match. Towards the end of the match, we see Jake ducking Protect Ya Neck from Ahren and going for Wings of Hell. He has him there for the cover, but Chris Elite provides a distraction. Meanwhile, Lance Blackfyre slides inside the ring and connects with a Shattered Joy on Jake. Xander Payne walks out from the match, saving his energy for Mr. DEDEDE and The ILLIONAIRES take advantage of Jake. Ahren connects with a Protect Ya Neck and Chris follows that up with a You Gotta Love it, getting The ILLIONAIRES their first win since November. The last shot is off The ILLIONAIRES mocking Cameron Ella Ava, who stands on top of the announcers’ desk and raises the Answers World Championship above her head.)
(The scene fades inside the Pepsi Center.)
(SCREEN BAR — DENVER, COLORADO!)
(“ULTRAnumb” by Blue Stahli blasts through the speakers as the crowd in the Pepsi Center stands up on their feet and cheers. A moment passes before Cameron Ella Ava walks out with the Answers World Championship on her shoulder. On her way to the ring, Cameron is tagging the hand of the EAW fans in the front row.)
Gina Romano: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN…PLEASE WELCOME AT THIS TIME… THE ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION…CAAAMMMMMMMEEERRRRRRRRROOOOOOOOOONNNNNNN EEEEEELLLLLLLLLLLLLAAAAAAA AAAAAVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!
Eve: Hello, everyone! Welcome to Saturday Night Showdown! We are one week from Showdown’s exclusive FPV, Under Siege! I am the lead commentator, Eve!
Deadprez: I am Deadprez!
Gavin Kirkland: I am Gavin Kirkland! Tonight, we are beginning the show in the most amazing way possible with the Answers World Champion herself! Cameron Ella Ava is scheduled to defend the Answers World Championship against Ahren Fournier and Chris Elite in a Triple Threat Match!
Eve: It’s one out of the two Triple Threat Matches on the card, but Cameron Ella Ava is determined to prove that she can be a fighting champion! Even when Jenny Punk was going to deny Chris Elite an opportunity at the Answers World Champion, it was Cameron, who stepped in and accepted the challenge from Chris.
Deadprez: Both members of The ILLIONAIRES have established that it doesn’t matter who walks out as champion, it just can’t be Cameron Ella Ava.
(The camera pans to Cameron Ella Ava already inside the ring. She gets the microphone from Gina Romano, who exits the ring and gives Cameron her time. “ULTRAnumb” dies down. The crowd continues to cheer for Cameron before she begins.)
Cameron Ella Ava: Hello, Denver? How are you guys doing tonight?
(The crowd cheers at the mention of their city!)
Cameron Ella Ava: I’m taking it that you guys are doing good. As for me, I’m doing great. In one week, I will be putting this Answers World Championship on the line against Chris Elite and Ahren Fournier of The ILLIONAIRES in a Triple Threat Match. It’s one of these matches, where I’m less likely to retain. The chances of an ILLIONAIRE walking out with this title are higher and it should intimidate me. It should discourage me. It should make me wonder if giving everything I have will be enough for me to retain. I’m fully aware that I’m walking into this match, going up against men who had my number at Reasonable Doubt back in November. From that standpoint, I should be shaking in my boots since The ILLIONAIRES had me and my husband’s number on an occasion. I must be the craziest person in the company to place myself in another situation that leaves me vulnerable. Ahren and Chris have their little alliance going on and it’s a shock that it hasn’t gone down the shitter yet, but you gotta admire their stubbornness and will to never give up. My determination to prove that I take on ANYONE should be admired as well. I’m a fighting champion. I’ll take on anyone in my way, which is why Chris got his championship match in the very first place.
Cameron Ella Ava: As for Ahren, I have no idea why the fuck he is in this match? It seems like him and Chris must be like me and Consuela as children and it’s inseparable. Ahren should thank Chris for ALLOWING him to be part of the match; however, I’m not going to complain about an extra contender in this match up. It’s one other man that I get to defeat. It provides me with an opportunity to right the wrong that Reasonable Doubt was for me. I upset me to be the one to eat the pin for my team. It upset me to let my husband down. Going into this match, I have no one to rely on but myself. Meanwhile, The ILLIONAIRES can rely on each other for as long as they want, but the moment they see the championship in their grasp, what will become of them? That’s the question on everyone’s mind. Are those two willing to risk their alliance for the sake of becoming Answers World Champion? It won’t be the first time that alliances and bonds were questioned on this brand. Do people really believe that The ILLIONAIRES will be able to look past their difference and put their egos aside for the possibility that this championship can be on one or the other’s shoulder? Yes, they’ve been able to last this long as a team. Yes, they have a ton of pressure because if they lose this match, Jenny Punk may consider who her investments are on this brand. To The ILLIONAIRES, this is a match that they can’t lose, but it seems like this is where things are headed for them —
(“Money and the Power ” by Kid Ink plays through the speakers as the crowd gives a negative reception to The ILLIONAIRES — Ahren Fournier and Chris Elite come out with big smiles on their faces as they’re loving the reception of the crowd. Both members have microphones in their hands as they stand on top of the stage.)
Gavin Kirkland: HERE ARE THE ILLIONAIRES!!!!
Eve: It seems like they had enough with waiting for Cameron Ella Ava to call them out, but The ILLIONAIRES do things on their own terms.
(“Money and the Power” dies down.)
Ahren Fournier: Omg, Cam. You just keep talking and talking and talking and talking … (soon enough, he begins to tilt his head to the left and pretend to fall asleep).
Chris Elite: Ahren, wake up!
Ahren Fournier: (wakes up alert) WHAT’S FOR BREAKFAST?
Chris Elite: :skip:
Chris Elite: Anyway, Ahren was on the same page as me and we just couldn’t wait in the back any longer. We knew that we had to come out and give these people what they paid to see.
(The ILLIONAIRES point at themselves, indicated that the fans paid to see them. Judging by the reception of the crowd, that is far from the truth.)
Chris Elite: That’s not you and those silicone tits of yours, Cam. That’s The ILLIONAIRES, the hottest tag team in this company. Despite all the setbacks, we still remain the most talked about tag team in this company. I mean, despite getting married, no one is talking about Fire and Ice. They won their match and they’re doing nothing with those opportunities at the Unified Tag Team Championships? The fuck is that? They just wasted an opportunity that could have gone to us.
Ahren Fournier: Fire and Ice are so greedy, Chris. Bunch of spoiled brats that need to have EVERYTHING. :unamused:
Chris Elite: They’re not going to talk about those pussies, Drake King and The Visual Prophet — “dRiZzY aNd vIzZy” or whatever the fuck they call their lame ass team. They think that they can be another ILLIONAIRES. People who’ve clashed in the ring, decided to team and go after the Unified Tag Team Championships. No, we’re the originals. Those two bozos are nothing more than the Dollar Tree version of us. However, Ahren is a white guy that can curse.
Ahren Fournier: You can’t beat the originals, Christopher. But, let’s not talk about how we’re not getting our Unified Tag Team Championship match at Under Siege. For the time being, we have something a lot better and that’s the Answers World Championship. One of us beats you, Cam and then, there’s no way that Jenny Punk — if that is her real name — can deny us a Tag Team Championship match any longer. Christopher and I are going to be CO-Answers World Champions, so it really doesn’t matter which one of us dethrones the other; however, it’s going to be me.
Chris Elite: Maybe, it will be me. :mjgrin:
Ahren Fournier: Can you imagine years from now when people look at the Answers World Champion history, they’re not going to be looking at your bih ass as the first female to have ever captured the title — no one gives a fuck about that. The only thing that is going to matter when looking at the history of the title is seeing me and Chris’ pictures as co-champions! :wow: They are going to be talking about how The ILLIONAIRES set EAW to another Golden Age! It’s going to be a Golden Age that people can only dream about! It’s going to be the Golden Age that people are going to look in textbooks and see how impactful our championship win was. We didn’t need to tear each other apart to become champion. Chris and I only needed to rely on each other. As long as the two of us were on the same page, there was nothing that could ruin things for us. Cam, you can be like everyone that tries to tear down me and Christopher apart, but it’s not going to work. The ILLIONAIRES will stay united as ever. Most importantly, The ILLIONAIRES will stand united as Answers World Champion!
Chris Elite: I really love the sound of that. When we become the Answers World Champion, Jenny Punk doesn’t need to worry about replacing us as her investment. She doesn’t need to worry about whether we deserve another shot at the Tag Team Championships because we will have already proven that we are deserving of a shot at these titles. The next opportunity we get at the Tag Team Championships, we will succeed. We don’t care how many roadblocks we need to overcome in order to get ourselves another shot at the Tag Team Championships. We don’t care how many times we fall, we get right back up. As opponents have tried and tried, there’s no getting rid of us, Cam. Even when you think that you’ve managed to take one of us down, there’s going to be another one that reminds you that the match isn’t over yet. This isn’t going to be like Xander “fatass” Payne and his failure to defeat you at King of Elite. We aren’t Xander Payne whatsoever. By just comparing Ahren and me to Xander, you can OBVIOUSLY see that we aren’t Xander. At Under Siege, we’re actually going to get the job done, defeat you and take the Answers World Championship from your STD-infested hands.
Cameron Ella Ava: Are you now?
Ahren Fournier: We sure are! There is no limit to our skills inside this ring. There’s no limit to our glass ceiling unlike you, who will probably go back down to the level of irrelevant after I take that championship away from you, Cameron. You had a good little run, but it’s about time that the most real Elitists in this company take what rightfully belongs to them. The ILLIONAIRES can do whatever the fuck we want on this brand and company. People can call us a bust. People can say that there’s no way to rebuild The ILLIONAIRES to what we were when we joined together. Oh no! Our momentum is crushed! There’s no way to come back from all of these losses, but they aren’t relevant to me. Are they relevant to you, Christopher?
Chris Elite: I had them forgotten until you brought them up, Ahren. It’s almost like they were nothing to me as well. That’s the thing, Cameron. With certain people in this company, they cry whenever they lose one time in six months. As for us? We’ve had our victories, but we’ve had our losses as well and it hasn’t phased us whatsoever. Yes, we’re unhappy about those losses, but we’ve moved on from them. It’s a thing in the past and we plan to leave them to the past. I would recommend you to bring something new to the table when talking to one of us, Cameron. I encourage you to bring something up that hasn’t been talked about before. Please don’t be like every other bozo and dickeater, who has claimed that The ILLIONAIRES are nothing more than two men, who can’t get the job done or that we’re nothing at this moment. At Under Siege, we’re planning on shutting up all those neckbeards, who think like that.
Cameron Ella Ava: It’s sad that you two had a lot of expectations. Getting that victory at Reasonable Doubt should have led to bigger and better things for the two of you; however, it’s tragic that you even have to take part in this match and fight for a future opportunity at the Unified Tag Team Championships. In your eyes, you two should be the Unified Tag Team Champions. You should be on top of the Tag Team scene, but instead, the two of you are scrambling for ways to prove to all those naysayers that say that The ILLIONAIRES are nothing at this point. You lose at Under Siege and what happens? Jenny Punk drops you like yesterday’s trash. You could always Gawd Contract yourself another shot at the Unified Tag Team Champions, but there’s always going to be Jenny, who tries to out rule you. The ILLIONAIRES can parade around like they’re untouchable, but no one is buying it. At Under Siege, I think it’s time for me to take down whatever is left of The ILLIONAIRES.
Chris Elite: Yeah, that’s not going to happen —
Gavin Kirkland: AHREN FOURNIER JUST CLOCKED THE BACK OF CAMERON ELLA AVA’S HEAD WITH THE MICROPHONE! THE ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION DROPS TO HER KNEES AS AHREN CONNECTS WITH A KNEE STRIKE TO THE BACK OF HER SKULL!! CAMERON DROPS FACE FIRST AS THE ILLIONAIRES BEGIN TO STOMP ON THE CHAMPION! THESE TWO ARE LOOKING TO MAKE A STATEMENT A WEEK BEFORE UNDER SIEGE!
Eve: Ahren Fournier has the microphone in his hand and he slams it against Cameron Ella Ava’s skull repeatedly! Chris Elite is gesturing for Ahren to get Cameron back to her feet before Chris nails Cameron with a Box Office Smash! Ahren rebounds himself from the ropes — PROTECT YA NECK! CLOTHESLINE FROM HELL ON THE CHAMPION! THAT TAKES HER DOWN! AHREN GETS CAMERON AND THROWS HER THROUGH THE MIDDLE ROPE AND TO THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING!
Deadprez: Chris Elite walks over to the timekeeper and shoos him away before taking the steel chair and slamming it closed! Cameron Ella Ava is in an all-fours position! The champion is still showing some signs of life!
Gavin Kirkland: Ahren Fournier nails Cameron Ella Ava with a steel chair shot to the back! Ahren gets the steel chair high above his head before slamming the chair onto Cameron’s back again! Ahren does the same thing again! And again! And again! And again! And again! Chris Elite gets Cameron up to her feet before throwing her head first against the ring post! Her head just bounced back the entire thing! The Answers World Champion is down as Chris and Ahren roll Cameron back into the ring!
Eve: Chris Elite has Cameron Ella Ava on his shoulders! Ahren Fournier is heading for the top rope! Ahren from the top rope! Protect Ya Neck from the top rope!
Deadprez: PUT IT ON ICE ON THE ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION!
(The crowd continues to boo The ILLIONAIRES as Cameron Ella Ava is lying unconscious. Chris Elite sees the Answers World Champion near the ropes that Cameron dropped when Ahren Fournier hit her with the microphone. Chris gets his hands on the Answers World Championship. He stares at his reflection on the championship for a moment as Ahren goes to him, patting him on the back, feeling hyped due to taking out Cameron. The ILLIONAIRES go to Cameron, who is still out as both member of The ILLIONAIRES holds a side of the Answers World Championship above their heads. “Money and the Power” plays again.)
Gavin Kirkland: The ILLIONAIRES established that this championship isn’t going to break their bond. Regardless of who gets the winning pin, they believe that they will be co-Answers World Champion.
Eve: I don’t think it works like that, Gavin.
Deadprez: Who’s gonna tell them though? :lupe:
Eve: We’ll be right back with more Saturday Night Showdown! Stay tuned!
Gavin Kirkland: Wait a minute — hold that! I’m getting word that there’s been a commotion backstage, which regards the tag team match that we’re supposed to be seeing next! Can we get some footage of what’s happening backstage?
(In perfect timing, the camera pans to the backstage where Shaker Jones is stomping on TNT while The Bozo Victims Unit is cheering and supporting Shaker. Oliver Queen is unconscious after Jordan Payne attacked him. Shaker gets TNT and throws him headfirst against the wall. That takes him down, but Jordan Payne is somehow able to get back to his feet after Shaker took him down.)
Eve: It seems like Jordan Payne isn’t going to let Shaker Jones blindside him and get away with it! Jordan takes down Shaker with a clothesline! Jordan throws Shaker back first against the wall!
Deadprez: OH MY GOD! DETECTIVE BIGGUMS JUST TOOK DOWN JORDAN PAYNE WITH A RICKYYYYYY!!!! THE BICYCLE KICK KNOCKS JORDAN DOWN INSTANTLY!!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: Look at this now! All the Bozos began to kick the living hell out Jordan Payne! Detective Assion, Detective Ty and Detective Biggums are not giving Jordan any time to breathe! It’s the pack mentality that the Bozos have! They are looking out for Shaker Jones! Shaker makes it back to his feet as he gets Jordan up on his feet before connecting with The Howling! Lifting spinning DDT on Jordan!
Eve: It seems like TNT is making it back to his feet, but Detective Biggums takes him down with another Bicycle kick! TNT falls down instantly! Shaker Jones stalks TNT back to his feet before connecting with The Whipsmash! Clothesline from hell!
Deadprez: Shaker Jones and The Bozo Victims Unit just took down two newcomers on the Showdown brand!
(The Bozos begin to pat Shaker Jones on the back, gassing him up.)
???: Wow, you see how fast of a learner he is? :wow:
(Chris Elite walks into the group as Ahren Fournier stands next to him with a smile on his face. After they laid out Cameron Ella Ava just moments ago, things are seeming to look good for the group.)
Ahren Fournier: Not bad, Shaker. Maybe, there’s promise in you after all.
Chris Elite: See, I told Shaker that this match was nothing more than a waste of his time. He didn’t need to sweat about it. These two bozos won’t be in the company by the end of the month. Not only did he avoid not competing in a pointless ass match, but he made a statement and showed that he isn’t to be fucked with.
Shaker Jones: I wasn’t sure about this direction to take, but I’m glad that I listened to your advice, Chris. I think we made a great job in making a statement, right?
(Shaker Jones looks at The Bozo Victims Unit, who all nod in agreement.)
Chris Elite: See? You listen to me and you’ll be on the road to great things. Who knows? Once Ahren and I become the Answers World Champion and Unified Tag Team Champions. We may get you a shot at the New Breed Championship or some shit. After that, there’s nothing that’s going to be able to stop us. Now, let’s get out of here. This area reeks of jobber.
(Ahren Fournier looks at a laid out TNT and Jordan Payne in disgust as Chris Elite puts an arm on Shaker Jones. Everyone leaves the scene as the camera pans on a laid-out TNT and Jordan Payne as it fades to commercial break.)
(Commercial for Shock Value. Rewatch the most “shocking” event now on the EAW Network!)
(Showdown returns from commercial break as interviewer, Kyra Phillps. Kyra is wearing a salmon-colored, long-sleeved turtle neck crop top paired with some light blue jeans. Her hair is in beachy waves and she wears a pretty smile on her face, looking at the camera.)
Kyra Phillips: EAW Universe, we had an amazing night from Shock Value. They have set the bar for Showdown to surpass. Next week, it will be Showdown’s turn as we will have our Under Siege event. Four championships will be defended and with me, right now are two women have DOMINATED the Unified Tag Team Championship scene for NINE months, becoming the longest-reigning Unified Tag Team Champions in EAW History. Heavenly Hell, it’s amazing that you could join me.
(The scene pans to Heavenly Hell — Constance Blevins and Minerva with smiles on their faces. Their championships rest nicely on their laps. Constance is wearing a long-sleeved, form-fitting t-shirt and black skinny jeans. The outfit is finished off with a leather jacket. Meanwhile, Minerva is wearing a black shoulder top and ripped skinny jeans.)
Minerva: It’s our pleasure, Kyra.
Kyra Phillips: First off, congratulations on all your success. Back in January, you became the longest-reigning Unified Tag Team Champions.
Minerva: It’s funny because that’s the first time that someone has personally congratulated us for our amazing accomplishment but isn’t anyone shocked that we managed to hold onto these titles for about nine months? Constance, are you shocked?
Constance Blevins: I’m not.
Minerva: We’ve dominated every tag team that’s stepped in front of us. We’ve dominated the pet projects, golden couples, the bottom of the barrel and at Under Siege, we dominate the best on the Dynasty brand. Constance and I are confident of that.
Kyra Phillips: On Dynasty, you were on commentary for the main event, which featured your opponents at Under Siege. The show concluded with both of you getting the upper hand on Drake King and The Visual Prophet. Now, what is Heavenly Hell going to do in order to make sure that you secure the victory at Under Siege?
Constance Blevins: It would be so easy for us to go out there and claim that we’re going to dominate, but The Visual Prophet and Drake King? They’re different from our past competition. One’s the King of Elite. The other one is the World Heavyweight Champion. On paper, they seem unbeatable; however, when you get closer and analyze them, you see those two for who they really are. Drake King is nothing more than a man who talks out of his own ass. The Visual Prophet thinks he’s so charming…
Minerva: Mmmmm…Viz. :drool:
(Constance Blevins snaps her fingers at Minerva, but makes her snap out of her trance.)
Constance Blevins: Minnie, focus. Back to my point, The Visual Prophet may believe that he will be able to use his charms to woo us and especially, Minerva, but happily, we’re smart enough to realize what he’s trying to do. He’s trying to cause the downfall of our historic championship reign by trying to get inside Minerva’s head. Happily, Minerva has her partner to snap her back to reality.
Minerva: Heavenly Hell aren’t idiots, Kyra. By the actions on Dynasty two days ago, you can see who the actual idiots in the match are. The biggest one happened to be Drake, who thought that he could antagonize us during his match. Did he really think that he was going to get away with the childish mind games? Not on Heavenly Hell’s watch. No, we did what Constance and I had planned to do and that was to make a statement a week before Under Siege. By the looks of what happened to Drake and Viz, it seems like we accomplished our task. It was a matter of waiting for the perfect time and place to strike. It was pretty easy for us to see our opportunity and that’s something that Drake and Viz are going to need to be on a lookout for. Once we get one of them in the ring, we will figure out a way to capitalize and retain. It’s what we’ve done with all our previous opponents. The only difference between Drake and Viz is that they’re a little more established than the two of us, but that’s not going to intimidate us whatsoever.
Kyra Phillips: Now, for the past few months, people have begun to discuss what could happen to Heavenly Hell once they lose the titles? Minerva, you have the Iconic Cup, so would your focus go to make sure that you have successful cash in?
Minerva: Would my focus go to something else? You never know, but Constance and I have discussed this a few times throughout the past nine months and we made it clear about something. We want to establish ourselves as the main event talents. We want to go up against the Mr. DEDEDEs Jamie O’Haras and Cameron Ella Avas of this brand. We don’t want to be just tag team wrestlers. We want to prove that we can be successful on our own just like we are in a team. No, that doesn’t mean that Heavenly Hell is going to break up and going our own ways, but I like to thank it as using this as an opportunity to dominate whatever division we decide to step in.
Constance Blevins: I’m aware of the fact that there’s going to come a day that Minerva cashes in that Iconic Cup and her attention will go towards being the best Universal Women’s Champion that this company has ever seen. Does that make me fade into the background? That’s not going to happen whatsoever. No, either I am going to do everything in my power to be her equal. Just like I’m her equal right now. I’ve made it known to Minerva I would love for Heavenly Hell to go on for as long as possible and she’s more than open to the idea. Together or separate, this company is going to belong to Heavenly Hell. Just like the tag team division belongs to us. Just like the women’s division is going to belong to us. It won’t be long until this company is completely ours.
Kyra Phillips: Power statements from the Unified Tag Team Champions. Constance, Minerva, thank you for giving me your time.
Constance Blevins: It was our pleasure.
(The camera transitions to Gina Romano standing in the ring.)
Gina Romano: The following contest is a tag team match scheduled for ONE FALL!
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!!
Gina Romano: Introducing first from Charlotte, North Carolina, weighing in at 118 pounds, “THE JOVIAL ICON” HARPER LEE!!!
(‘Debate Scrum’ by Masafumi Takada stats to play throughout the arena, Harper Lee comes out with a huge smile, pointing out to the fans before running down to the ring, hi-fiving some of the crowd in attendance.)
Deadprez: Tag team action here tonight as we see the adorable and very popular Harper Lee teaming up with Alexis Chambers and what a team that is.
Eve: I have to agree, the future of Showdown and the Women’s Division in general especially on International Women’s Weekend, both of these ladies though will go up against each other at Under Siege in a triple threat against Raven Roberts with the Universal Women’s Championship on the line.
Gavin Kirkland: I like Harper, she’s cute and giddy. I also like Alexis Chambers, I am torn here… though Chambers brother is Terry, I am telling you she is adopted.
(As Harper Lee slides into the ring, pointing at the fans and pacing in the ring, her them fades and “Walking the Wire” by Imagine Dragons starts to play throughout the arena as Alexis Chambers slowly walks out, looking out to the crowd, listening to the cheers of the fans as she starts skipping down to the ring, high fiving the fans and stopping for a little selfie here and there toward the ring.)
Gina Romano: Her tag team partner hails from Detroit, Michigan! Weighing in at 117 pounds! She is the “MOTOR CITY GODDESS” ALEXIS CHAMBERS!
(Sliding into the ring, Alexis Chambers is on her knees, brushing her hair back before standing up and laying on the top turnbuckle with a smirk on her face waiting for her opponent.)
Deadprez: Here is her tag team partner and she is making a lot of noise early, both women with a huge chance at Under Siege, they could be looking ahead and forgetting they both have Rico Reeves and The Prince.
Eve: That is true Prez, they cannot overlook their opponents tonight.
Gavin Kirkland: Do you think Terry would kill me if I flirted with his sister?
(As Chamber’s music fades, 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 flicker 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.)
Gina Romano: Their opponents, first hails from Kingston Upon Thames, England! Weighing in at 200 pounds! He is “PRINCE” DRAY FONTANA!
(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!)
Deadprez: The very dangerous Dray Fontana, and we saw him and Bronson Daniels take the fight to the concession stands last week.
Gavin Kirkland: He is mad and looking to hurt these two beauties, a very underrated player here on Showdown.
Eve: And his partner is probably the laziest wrestler I have ever seen.
(Dray paces, looking at the two women as his music fades and Reeves kicks on.)
Gina Romano: His partner, hails from Portland, Oregon, weighing in at 195 pounds, “RETRO” RICO REEVES!!!!
(’20 mins’ by Lil Uzi Vert plays throughout the arena, the crowd cheer as “Retro” Rico Reeves with hands in his pocket makes his way toward the ring, he stops, looks around, shrugs his shoulders as he makes his way ringside and to the apron.)
Deadprez: Hands in his pocket, he is ready to fight.
Eve: Don’t let this little ploy fool you, this man can wrestle.
Gavin Kirkland: Rico is always chill; do you think he is friends with Bronson?
(Rico rolls into the ring, slowly getting back up to his feet after rolling around a few times to get the right angle so he can get back up, Rico leans against the turnbuckle, waiting on his opponent but Alexis Chambers wastes no time drop kicking him right into that turnbuckle as the crowd roars. The referee quickly calls for the bell!)
(DING!!!!!!!! DING!!!!!!!!!! DING!!!!!!!!!!)
(Dray Fontana catches a dropkick from Harper Lee, he rolls out of the ring as Chambers monkey flips Rico over!)
Deadprez: This match started off quick! Alexis wasted no time going after Rico and he was caught in the corner! Alexis runs against the ropes, MOONSAULT! She quickly goes for the cover!

Rico kicks Alexis in the gut hard, ENZINGUIRI WITH HIS HANDS IN THE POCKETS! Alexis is down! RICO RUNS UP TO THE TOP ROPE AND FLIES WITH A SENTON!

Deadprez: Dray Fontana picks up Harper by the hair, slapping her a few times, throwing her against the turnbuckle, Clothesline, followed by a bulldog! He drags her to the corner and tags Rico! He’s in now, grabbing Harper and suplex, running against the ropes, another moonsault, he tags Dray Fontana again, showing some good chemistry here! Dray is in, lifting Harper and throwing her into the turnbuckle, he charges in but Harper moves at the last second, she comes up from behind with a School boy!
Eve: Dray Kicks out! Harper tries to go for a tag but Dray grabs her ankle, he tries to pull her in but a huge RIPCORD ENZINGURI! DRAY FALLS TO THE MATS! HARPER DIVES AND TAGS! ALEXIS CHAMBERS IS IN, SHE RUNS IN AND CROSSBODY! ALEXIS SPRINGS UP AND DRAY STANDS RIGHT INTO LIGHTS OUT! ALEXIS HOPS ON THE TOP ROPE! SHE GOES FOR HEART STOPPER! NO! RICO GRABS HER LEG! SHE KICKS RICO OFF AND GOES FOR THE HEART STOPPER BUT DRAY MOVES! ALEXIS LANDS ON HER FEET! HURRICARANA FOR THE PIN ON DRAY!
Gavin Kirkland: DRAY KICKS OUT! HOW CLOSE WAS THAT! ALEXIS CAN’T BELIEVE IT! SHE RUNS AGAINST THE ROPES, SHE IS CAUGHT WITH SITOUT POWEBOMB! HE HAS HER FOR THE COVER!
Eve: ALEXIS KICKS OUT! DRAY CAN’T BELIEVE IT EITHER! HE QUICKLY DRAGS HER TO THE CORNER, TAGGING IN RICO WHO HOPS ON THE ROPE…. FOOT STOMP ON ALEXIS! THIS MIGHT BE IT!
Deadprez: HARPER WITH THE SAVE! RICO TURNS AND PICKS UP ALEXIS, HE WHIPS HER TO THR ROPES AS HARPER GET TO HER CORNER, THE REFEREE TRYING TO GET HER BACK, DRAY FONTANA IN THE RING!

Eve: HARPER RUNS AGAINST THE ROPES AS RICO GETS UP! ALEXIS AND DRAY NOW ON THE OUTSIDE, RICO GETS UP, HARPER WITH THE FINAL DESTINATION!
Gavin Kirkland: RIGHT ON THE MONEY! GOODNIGHT RICO! HARPER WITH THE COVER!
(DING!!!! DING!!!!!! DING!!!!!!!)
(Dray tries to get in but Alexis holds him back, he pushes her off slamming the apron and walking off. Alexis slides in as the referee raises both her and Harper’s arm up in victory.)
Gina Romano: The Winners of the Match…. The team of HARPER LEE AND ALEXIS CHAMBERS!
(The crowd roars as Rico slowly rolls out of the ring, Dray is already heading to the back. ‘Debate Scrum’ by Masafumi Takada starts to play throughout the arena as both women show a sign of respect and hug one another.)
Eve: Huge win and momentum for both of these ladies heading into Under Siege, they worked well together against to great stars here in Showdown. The question now is, how will they act once they are across from another with Raven Roberts this weekend.
Deadprez: You said it Eve, tonight was about teamwork, the next time they are in the ring is for the top prize for any woman in EAW. Great match, great win for both.
Gavin Kirkland: So seriously, you think Terry will get pissed if I flirt with his sister?
(Alexis and Harper continue to celebrate in the ring as the fans cheer.)

(“Three Ain’t Enough” by Jim Johnston as the crowd gives him a standing ovation and Ring Master makes his way to the ring high fiving some fans along the way.)
Gina Romano: THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SET FOR ONE FALL! INTRODUCING FIRST…FROM SALISBURY, MARYLAND….WEIGHING IN AT THREE HUNDRED AND TWELVE POUNDS…..TTTTHHHEEE RRRIINNNGGG MMAASSSTTERRRR!!!!
Eve: The Ring Master fell short to Candice Blair last week on Showdown thanks to Ryan Wilson. He could use this match in order to redeem himself from that loss. It would be amazing momentum going into his match against Ryan next weekend!
Deadprez: It’s going to be a HARDCORE match. We aren’t really used to these types of matches on Showdown, so this match may not be for those that get queasy easy. But, this match right now is going to be okay.
( “I Am… All of Me” by Crush 40 hits a Colby Sol gets a mixed reaction. He makes his way to the ring with a laser focused look.)
Gina Romano: AND HIS OPPONENT…FROM PIITSBURGH, PENNSYLVANIA…WEIGHING IN AT TWO HUNDRED AND TWENTY THREE POUNDS…..CCCOLLLBBBYYY SSSOOOLL!!!!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: Colby Sol is from the Voltage brand as he fell short to Jalyn Garcia last week! He’s hoping that his visit to the Showdown brand is going to be successful, but he goes up against an amazing rising star talent in The Ring Master.
Deadprez: There is a ton of potential with Colby. I believe that he can be something great in this company. He’s going to be something that you are going to be on a look out for!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Eve: Here we go. both men circle one another waiting for the other one to make the first move and…Colby with a kick to the midsection of Ring Master! He throws a hard shot at his back now! Colby irish whips Ring Master to the corner, and now Colby charges at Ring Master but Ring Master gets his boot up stopping Colby in his tracks! Ring Master runs from the corner and knocks Colby down to the mat with a shoulder tackle! Ring Master drops to his knees and locks in the headlock now!
Deadprez: Ring Master had the headlock locked in deep on the mat and he’s wrenching on it now! Colby is trying to find a way out now and he’s up to one knee now, he throws an elbow to the midsection of Ring Master, and now Colby turns it into a back suplex! Colby pulls himself up in the corner and Ring Master follows suit soon after and Colby connects with a front dropkick to the chest of Ring Master knocking Ring Master into the corner again and Colby is gonna try again! Colby runs at Ring Master in the corner and connects with a leaping splash in the corner, and Colby follows it up with a running bulldog in the center of the ring! He covers!
Gavin Kirkland: Ring Master kicks out and this sausage fest continues. :noah:
Eve: Anyways, Colby stands up and drops repetitive elbows to the heart of the downed Ring Master! Colby soon now not wasting time lifts up Ring Master and sets him up for a suplex but RIng Master is using his foot to block it and now Ring Master lifts Colby up in the suplex position and is just balancing him in the air! Ring Master throws Colby stomach first on the top rope and now Colby is danging on it trying to balance himself! Ring Master runs to the ropes and throws a vicious knee right to the side of Colby’s head causing Colby to collapse to the outside floor! Ring Master steps through the middle rope to the outside and picks up Colby to get him back in the ring but Colby grabs Ring Master by his right arm and pulls him back causing Ring Master to go shoulder first into the steel steps!
Deadprez: Colby gets back to his feet and sees Ring Master near the steps holding his shoulder and he walks over and grabs him by the head and bounces Ring Master’s head off the steps before throwing him back in the ring! Colby slides back in and waits for Ring Master to turn around and Colby runs to Ring Master but Ring Master caught him in a belly to back suplex! Ring Master rolls away from Colby as his shoulder is still in a bit of pain! Ring Master stretches his arms and tries to shake it off as he approaches Colby on the mat now and he picks up Colby by the head but Colby while on one knee throws a body shot to the midsection of RIng Master, and Colby follows that up with a huge uppercut to the jaw of Ring Master and that stuns Ring Master enough to knock him back a few steps and Colby is back on both feet as Ring Master walks back to him and COLBY PLACES HIS FOOT ON RING MASTER’S CHIN….SOL FOOD! THE EAT DEFEAT CONNECTS AS COLBY GOES FOR THE PIN!!
Gavin Kirkland: RING MASTER KICKS OUT! COLBY PICKS UP RING MASTER AND PLACES HIM BETWEEN HIS LEGS BUT RING MASTER COUNTERS WITH THE BACK BODY DROP! COLBY IS UP AND RING MASTER CONNECTS WITH A CLOTHESLINE! AND THEN RING MASTER CONNECTS WITH ANOTHER ONE! RING MASTER PICKS UP COLBY IN A POWERSLAM POSITION AND THEN STARTS RUNNING WITH HIM ON HIS SHOULDER BUT COLBY SLIPS OUT FROM BEHIND RING MASTER AND THROWS A VICIOUS FOREARM TO THE BACK OF RING MASTER’S HEAD! RING MASTER DROPS TO ONE KNEE NOW AND COLBY HITS AN ENZIGUIRI TO RING MASTER’S HEAD FACING RING MASTER’S BACKSIDE! COLBY COVERS AGAIN!!
Eve: RING MASTER POWERS OUT AGAIN! HE WON’T STAY DOWN! COLBY NOW LOOKS AROUND WHAT TO DO NEXT AND THEN RING MASTER STANDS UP AND TURNS AROUND AND COLBY GRABS HIM BY HIS RIGHT ARM AND GOES FOR THE DEADLY LARIET BUT RING MASTER DUCKS UNDERNEATH IT AND THEN HITS A HEADBUTT AND COLBY FALLS BACKWARD AND BOUNCES OFF THE ROPE AND RING MASTER PICKS HIM UP ON HIS SHOULDER FOR THE BIG ENDING!! BUT NO!! COLBY SLIPS OUT AGAIN AND HE TURNS AROUND RING MASTER AND HITS A HIGH KNEE TO THE NOSE OF RING MASTER!

(“Three Ain’t Enough” by Jim Johnston hits as Ring Master stands and gets his hand raised by the referee.)
Gina Romano: HERE IS YOUR WINNER….THHHEE RRRIINNNGGG MMMAASSSTTERRR!!!!!
Eve: Great win for Ring Master gaining some momentum heading into his war with Ryan Wilson at Under Siege! What a fight from Colby here tonight as well, the man is full of potential. I just wish he was a Showdown talent. I know he’s gonna kill it on Voltage.
(Commercial for Under Siege featuring Harlow Reichert defending the PURE Championship against five other Elitists in a PURE Gauntlet match.)
(Showdown returns from commercial break as PURE Champion, Harlow Reichert stands in the middle of the ring with a smile on her face. She has a microphone in her hands as “Eye of the Tiger” by New Found Glory plays in the background. Harlow continues to hype the crowd up before her entrance music dies down.)
Harlow Reichert: Five title defenses. Five matches. Five different examples over why I am the best pure wrestler on this roster. On five occasions, I gave Elitists an opportunity to step up to the plate and try to take this PURE Championship away from me and five different times, my opponents have walked away empty handed. If you didn’t believe that I was deserving of this title on my shoulder, then you should know. If I was nothing more than a woman, who managed to catch Jake Smith at the right time and place, then I would have lost this championship to the next contender that stepped up to me. Each time I stepped into the ring, I proved that I am the right person to hold the PURE Championship. I am the right person to take this championship to the next level. Week after week after week, I went into my title defenses, provided everyone with the best performance I can possibly give. Were they perfect? No, I sometimes find myself rewatching my matches and picking apart my performances. I’m not afraid to stand in front of all of you and say that there’re instances in my title defenses, where I felt like I could have done better or not done at all; however, it’s nothing to pick on myself about. With each match, all I can do is become better than my last performance.
Harlow Reichert: My next performance? Under Siege. I find myself competing in a PURE Gauntlet Match. Not only that, but I am the first woman to step inside the ring and all I can do is to expect the unknown. If anything, these title defenses have trained me mentally to embrace the idea of expecting whatever comes my way. I was unaware of the competitors who would be stepping in to take me on for my title and at Under Siege, I may be aware of my opponents, but I have no idea on the order they’re coming out in. As for my opponents, all of them are aware that I am going to be the first woman to step into the match. What my opponents need to be aware that I will be waiting for each of them. I will knock them down and I will put on one of the most amazing title defenses in my reign…so far. That’s right. If I manage to make it out of this title defense, then there’s a possibility that there is going to be no one that takes this PURE Championship away from me. It may sound cocky and arrogant, but this PURE Championship means the world to me and I plan on holding it for a long, long, long time. That goes beyond Under Siege. That goes beyond Grand Rampage. That goes beyond Odyssey. That goes beyond Pain for Pride. At Under Siege, I am going to put on the performance of my career. This match would intimidate anyone in my position, but I’m excited. It’s an excellent test for my stamina and endurance.
Harlow Reichert: Winning this match would solidify my reign as one of the best. If people don’t seem me as the best right now, they will.
???: Blah, blah, blah…
(The crowd boos at the sound of Albert Hitchman. Lucas Johnson stands next to his advocate, who has the microphone in his hand.)
Albert Hitchman: You’re not the best, Harlow. He (points at Lucas) is the best.
(The crowd boos at Albert Hitchman’s claim.)
Harlow Reichert: Really, Albert? He didn’t seem like the best when I tapped him out in the middle of the ring two weeks ago.
(The crowd goes “ooooh” as Albert Hitchman seems unamused by the idea. Lucas Johnson has a smug look on his face. Lucas takes the microphone from Albert.)
Lucas Johnson: I tapped out because regardless of how things went in our match, I knew that I had my match at Under Siege on the lock. When you locked me in the Fujiwara armbar, I was conflicted on what I wanted to do. It either has a broken arm going into Under Siege or it was to submit. I chose to submit to live another day because I wanted to enter the Gauntlet at 100%. In a sense Harlow, you won the battle, but not the war. That’s what Hitch made very clear to me backstage after the match. Yes, I put on an excellent performance, but I want that PURE Championship. That is still a priority to me and I’m not going to stop until I get that championship in my clutches. It doesn’t matter if I’m number two or number five in the match, but I’m not going to stop until I win the championship. Under Siege is where it all comes to an end for you, Harlow. It was a nice run. You did everything that you could with the PURE Championship. It’s time that you let someone like myself take that PURE Championship to the next level.
(By the time that Lucas Johnson is done speaking, he and Albert Hitchman are inside the ring with Harlow Reichert.)
???: You two aren’t going to do shit in this Gauntlet!
(The crowd boos even louder at Lance Blackfyre coming out with a microphone in his hand. As he talks, Lance Blackfyre begins to make his way to the ring.)
Lance Blackfyre: The PURE Gauntlet provides me with an opportunity to do the one thing that I love to do and that’s kick some ass inside the ring. I’m excited to kick your asses in this match. I’m excited to take that PURE Championship from your thiccc waist, Harlow and give the PURE Championship a REAL champion. A real MAN like myself. Harlow, I know it’s going to be difficult for you to keep your hands to yourself whenever I’m in the ring. When the bunch of small dicked men that you will be in the ring with, it should be a nice change that you get someone like myself; however, I have something that I need to accomplish in this match and that is to take that PURE Championship away from you, Harlow. You may be thiccc in all the right places. But, when I take that championship from you, you should go back to your actual purpose for being part of this company. That’s for your looks and body. Nothing more and nothing less. It’s shocking that you managed to hold on to that title for as long as you have, but looking at the competition that’s stepped up to you…
(Lance Blackfyre looks at Lucas Johnson and shakes his head by looking back at Harlow Reichert.)
Lance Blackfyre: I can see why.
Lucas Johnson: Lance, you don’t mean that, bro.
Lance Blackfyre: Yes, I fucking do. One of the worst things that I had to do back in November was carry your bitch ass around during the match against Heavenly Hell.
Lucas Johnson: Wasn’t it you that passed out and cost us the match?
Lance Blackfyre: Yeah, but it’s not my fault that I get a raging boner whenever I have a woman’s legs wrapped around me.
Albert Hitchman, Lucas Johnson and Harlow Reichert: :skip:
Lance Blackfyre: Don’t look at me like that. I can kick all your three of your asses if I wanted too —
???: You couldn’t kick mine if life depended on it.
(The camera pans to Jake Smith, who is going down the ramp to everyone’s surprise. Jake has a microphone in his hand as he joins everyone else in the ring. To people, they believed that Jake was already done with the PURE Championship, but they are familiar with his issues with Lance Blackfyre, which progressed last week.)
Lance Blackfyre: Why are you out here? Can you be an annoying pain in the ass elsewhere?
Jake Smith: You think that you can step into my main event match last week and interfere? It’s because of you that I may never get another spot in the main event scene. I mean, the main event scene is going to miss this gorgeous face all because you had to stick your nose where it didn’t belong, Lance. After Showdown last week, I went to Jenny Punk because there was no way I was going to stand to let you step into my business and make me look like a dumbass. I wanted to face you at Under Siege and show you what happens when you mess with Jake Smith. There’s no way that I am going to let you get the best of me. Jenny needed to remind me that you were already in the PURE Gauntlet Match and then the idea hit me, if I want to get my hands on you or hope that I get my hands on you, I’ll do it in the PURE Gauntlet Match. For me, I couldn’t give a shit if we cross paths with each other in the match. As long as you don’t walk out with the PURE Championship, it’s going to be fine. I’m here to say that I’m in the PURE Gauntlet Match.
(The crowd gives a mixed reception for that announcement.)
Harlow Reichert: Did you just basically take a spot from someone who could have benefitted from this match, Jake? All in the sake of getting back at Lance?
Jake Smith: Lo, I wouldn’t expect you to understand it. Honestly, I wouldn’t expect anyone with a small brain to understand my thought process in all of this. For me, I thought I had moved on from the PURE Championship. To me, it seemed like Road to Redemption was a small blessing in disguise for me. At that moment, I didn’t fully understand why I lost the championship so prematurely. Now, I like to hold some glimmer of hope that all of these setbacks have led me to Under Siege. Not only do I get to get back at Lance for attacking me last week, but I get to reclaim the championship that was taken away from me so soon. Almost like killing two birds with one stone. People are going to look at this match and be like: “Jake doesn’t know when to give up!” “Jake doesn’t know when to move on!” It seems like I should have moved on at King of Elite, but it seems like my issues have led me back here, Harlow.
(Jake Smith and Harlow Reichert look at each other.)
Jake Smith: And, it led me back to that PURE Championship.
???: Okay, I’ve fucking had enough with all of this blabbing!
(The crowd goes anxious as Shane Gates walks down the ramp. The crowd gives a mixed reception to Shane, who joins everyone else in the ring.)
Shane Gates: Look, talking isn’t my best suit. I’m not afraid to take any of you on. Yes, Lance. You did kick my ass before King of Elite, but I am still not shying away from the fight. Yes, Jake. You do have a victory over me or two. I can’t remember nor do I care less about that. Yes, Harlow, you have defeated me, but I like to think of myself as the wild card. Someone that no one expects to win the match and you know what? That’s fine with me —
Gavin Kirkland: SHANE GATES JUST PUNCHED HARLOW REICHERT IN THE FACE!
Eve: Jake Smith goes right after Lance Blackfyre with some punches, but Lance manages to push Jake across the ring, but that doesn’t stop him from coming back to him! Lucas Johnson and Albert Hitchman are rolling out of the ring, they want no mess of the situation Meanwhile, you have Shane taking Harlow to the corner as he rushes towards the corner with an running uppercut to Harlow! Harlow eats the uppercut as Shane manages to pick up Harlow and connects with a Dead Man! An Inverted sit out powerslam on the PURE Champion! Meanwhile, Jake gets Shane up to his feet before connecting with a Paralyzer — sit out spinebuster on Shane, who falls on top of Harlow!
Deadprez: Jake Smith gets back to his feet — SHATTERED JOY BY LANCE BLACKFYRE!
Gavin Kirkland: No! Jake Smith manages to duck the kick, before rising back to his feet and connecting with a superkick! However, the superkick does not stagger Lance back as Jake manages to connect with another superkick! And another one! And another one! Slowly, you can see the ‘Omen of Destruction,’ getting down to his knees! Jake runs towards Lance before connecting with a knee strike to the skull of Lance!
Eve: Harlow Reichert is making it back to her feet as she gets Shane Gates up before connecting with a meteora, taking Shane back down!
(At that moment, Harlow Reichert and Jake Smith stare at each other down. There was nothing that was gonna stop them from clashing inside the ring now. The two Elitists get back to their feet as —)
Gavin Kirkland: Why in the hell are the lights flickering?
Deadprez: Did someone forget to pay for the electrical bill?
(The lights shut off as the crowd goes insane, wondering what the hell is going on.)
Eve: Gavin, you better keep your hands to yourself.
Gavin Kirkland: I’m trying to figure out my surroundings. :mjcry:
(The lights go back on.)
Eve: WHAT IN THE WORLD?
Deadprez: OH MY GOD, THAT’S SANTO MUERTE!
(It pans to everyone inside the ring as Santo Muerte is the only one standing inside the ring. Jake Smith is knocked unconscious and it’s most likely thanks to Santo. Santo has Harlow Reichert in position for The Offering —grounded headlock and inverted armbreaker. Harlow’s arm is prepared to be bent back. Harlow is shaking her head no. She knows what usually happens after.)
Gavin Kirkland: He has Harlow by her arm! He wouldn’t dare! :damn:
Santo Muerte (off-mic): No mercy.
Eve: SANTO MUERTE SNAPS BACK THE ARM OF THE PURE CHAMPION! :damn:
Deadprez: What a powerful statement tonight by Santo Muerte.
Gavin Kirkkand: I know, Harlow seemed confident about her chances, but I wouldn’t be shocked if it was taken away from her after what transpired in this ring.
(Harlow Reichert is clutching her arm as she’s crying out in pain. Harlow is doing everything in her power to fight back her tears. There’s no lying that this is painful for her. Santo Muerte gets back to his feet as he looks at the competitors lying down. The only Elitist standing inside the ring is Santo Muerte. The rest of the competition is down and he’s hoping that it’s going to be him that walks away with the PURE Championship at Under Siege. The scene pans elsewhere.)
(SCREEN BAR — EARLIER THIS WEEK.)
(The camera pans inside an undisclosed location. It transitions to a room inside the undisclosed location. There’s a bunch of production lights. In the radar of the lights, are two director’s chairs. One pink director’s chair with “Candice” on the back of it. The other pink director’s chair is occupied by ‘The Ace’ himself, Jamie O’Hara, who is dressed in his definition of casual attire — most notably his leather jacket. Lately, Jamie hasn’t been a fan of his darling and beautiful sister-in-law Candice Blair; however, he looks forward to proving why Candice is nothing compared to him wrestling and accomplishment wise. At the moment, Jamie is on his phone, scrolling down his social media feed, bored out of his fucking mind. A stage hand walks over to pour him a tall glass of water, which was placed on top of a tray with wheels.)
Jamie O’Hara (to the stage hand): I’ve been waiting for her for twenty minutes. Where is she?
Female Stage Hand: She’s still in makeup.
Jamie O’Hara: Oh great… :unamused:
(The female stage hand leaves Jamie O’Hara by himself before dialing a number on his phone and placing it next to his ear, waiting for someone on the other line to pick it up; however, they get their voicemail instead.)
Jamie O’Hara: Hey babe, it’s me… again. I just wanted you to know that I really, really, REAAALLLLLLLLY love you and I’ll do anything for you, but your family is really testing my patience. I’ve been waiting for over twenty minutes for Candice to begin this “interview” or whatever the fuck she has planned. There’s a part of me that is going to feel great about driving my knee against your sister’s skull and getting a win underneath my belt, but there’s another part of me that hates to see Candice spiraling because I don’t think that she’s a terrible person. I don’t think that she’s the smartest and that’s most likely, what she gets from Camille, but —
???: Okay, I’m here!
(Jamie O’Hara is cut off mid-voicemail as he spots Candice Blair in a red strapless jumpsuit. Her gorgeous blonde hair is in beachy waves as she sits herself on her director’s chair. Candice seems very pumped up, not even acknowledging the fact that her brother-in-law had been waiting for over twenty minutes for her. She has a few pink notecards with her to make sure that she gets this conversation on track.)
Jamie O’Hara (to the phone): Okay, your sister showed up, but I’ll call you later.
(Jamie O’Hara hangs up his phone before looking at Candice Blair, who gives him a warm, genuine and ditzy smile.)
Jamie O’Hara: Glad for you to join everyone here, Candice. But, what the fuck are we supposed to be doing?
Candice Blair: Well, I thought this would be an opportunity to try out my new talk show. It’s called “Getting Candid by Candice Blair” and YOU are the first guest, Jamie! 😀 Basically with this talk show, we’re going to be honest, real and if necessary, we are going to be blunt. We leave no questions unanswered and with someone like you, there’s questions that people want to see you answer.
Director: Is everyone ready?
(Candice Blair and Jamie O’Hara nod, indicating that they’re ready as the Director calls for the interview to begin. Candice looks at the camera.)
Candice Blair: Ladies and gentlemen, EAW Universe, welcome to the first installment of “Getting Candid by Candice Blair!” I am “The Hot Commodity” herself, Candice Blair. For the first installment, I have my opponent for Under Siege, Jamie O’Hara with me! How are you, Jamie?
Jamie O’Hara: Good. Totally haven’t been waiting over twenty minutes for you. :mjgrin:
Candice Blair: Sorry about that. You don’t look this good without a little effort (flips her blonde hair to the side). But, I’m so glad that you could join me today. As how I want “Getting Candid” to be across, I want these interviews to feel honest and real. If there’s the need to be blunt, go right ahead because I’m not going to be afraid of hurting feelings.
Jamie O’Hara: Well, I won’t be afraid of hurting any feelings either.
Candice Blair: Good. Now, where to begin. Oh yes, well, let’s talk about your most recent match at King of Elite. Now, we’ve all seen the match. Those didn’t need to see the match on the EAW Network —cheap plug for EAW. You’re welcome. Personally from a spectator side, it seems like this season has been your toughest season yet and it’s not even over. King of Elite was supposed to be the night, where you could have redeemed yourself from all of your setbacks. Instead, it was another moment of you coming so close, yet so far. When the match was all said and done, what was your emotion through the entire thing?
Jamie O’Hara: At that moment, I was exhausted. I really couldn’t find a word to describe how I felt at that moment. It was one of those moments, where you’ve wrestled in a match for a long fucking time and you’re so focused in getting this one job done. At King of Elite, that job was to win the crowd and get myself a future opportunity for a World Championship. You ignore everything that’s going around you. From the commentators talking to the EAW Universe reacting, you just ignore everything around you and you’re so in tune to make sure you manage to get the job done, you fail to realize everything around you. It’s just one of my supposed quirks, I guess? I’m REALLY obsessed with accomplishing my goals that I fail to realize everything else around me. I don’t normally notice how my obsession to accomplishing my goals will affect those around me.
Candice Blair: Would you see that was the internal reason why you didn’t win at King of Elite?
Jamie O’Hara: My obsession with accomplishing my goals? In a sense, it may have blinded me, but that’s what it does to anyone with goals. You don’t know the feeling?
Candice Blair: In this industry, not really. To be honest, not in any industry that I’ve stepped foot in. Everything always seemed to come easy to me.
Jamie O’Hara: Maybe, that’s because you haven’t had anyone that’s pushed you.
Candice Blair: This isn’t about me, so let’s move on —
Jamie O’Hara: That’s the thing — not many people know about you, Candice. As I’m planning to recollect my thoughts on everything about you, I find myself drawing a blank because there’s not much about you. Maybe, a forgettable performance at Road to Redemption, a loss over mediocre competition like Ryan Wilson. Going into your match last week, am I supposed to be impressed that you got a victory over someone like The Ring Master? If you feel a sense of pride getting a victory over The Ring Master, then your standards are quite low — especially, for someone with your last name. Knowing how your sisters are, I expect you to have the same mentality. I expect for you to want greatness in your life. I expect for you to want to go to Under Siege and want to defeat me. I want you to stop at nothing to make sure that it’s your arm raised in the end, Candice. I don’t want you to shrug your shoulders when I defeat you, Candice. I want you to feel upset that you weren’t able to beat ‘The Ace’ of this company. I want you to experience the feeling of how it truly feels to face someone on a whole other level than you because I truly believe that you’ve never been against someone that’s pushed you to your limits. If you manage to push yourself to another level and get your arm raised in the end, all the credit in the world to you.
Candice Blair: My arm will be raised. You don’t need to worry about that. However, I’ve been seeing posts on social media about our match and there have been similar posts made. I’m going to be forward about it and ask you the question: do you think that you’re going to wipe the floor with me at Under Siege?
Jamie O’Hara: Yes.
Candice Blair: …
Jamie O’Hara: If you don’t cut the act of being someone who’s incredibly clueless and take this match seriously.
Candice Blair: You don’t think that I’m taking this match seriously?
Jamie O’Hara: You’ve said that you’re doing this match for the payday. You go wherever you see dollar signs, but nothing tells me that you have that fire within yourself to compete and prove that those people’s negative opinions wrong. You have no idea that many Elitists would kill to face me and yet, I’m facing a fourth-rate Ava sister? Damn, it seems like I really have fallen from my glory days, Candice.
Candice Blair: Who the fuck you’re calling forth-rate?
(At that moment, you can see Candice Blair’s getting steamed by trying to keep as calm as possible.)
Jamie O’Hara: That look (points at Candice Blair’s pissed off face). That’s the look I want at Under Siege, Candice. You’re going to have someone who questions why you’re “The Hot Commodity.” You’re going to have someone who will point out your flaws, setbacks and lack of accomplishments. There’s nothing to your name. There’s no reason why you should be having the same confidence that Camille had when facing me at War Games. However, you’re not going to change any of that, but I am going to enjoy making you realize that you have a long time until you could even taste a fraction of my success. Maybe, kneeing you a couple times against your skull will do the trick.
Candice Blair: I don’t hate you, Jamie. I don’t wish any ill of you. However, I am an opportunist and I look for ways to advance my career to the next level. I could care less if it’s at the expense of you.
Jamie O’Hara: Cameron had that same approach back in 2016 and you know what happened to her.
Candice Blair: I do and I’m going to make sure that I don’t waste this opportunity. This won’t be like that match at all. I can promise you that.
(With the last word, Candice Blair leaves the scene, feeling a bit phased about how this interview went. To her, it may have been a success, but she went from interviewer to interviewee real quick. Jamie O’Hara makes the “cut” gesture, telling the Director to cut the scene as the footage ends.)
(It pans to a splitscreen of Mr. DEDEDE and Ryan Wilson making their way to the ring!)
Gavin Kirkland (in the background): DO NOT ADJUST YOUR TV SETS! THE BATTLE OF THE RYANS! OUR MAIN EVENT IS UP NEXT!
(Commercial for the brand new Coca-Cola energy. An all new way to cause heart issues. Try one today!)
(Camera opens to find Gina Romano inside the ring as “It Follows” by Cane Hill hits and Xander Payne walks out onto the ramp. He doesn’t bother to pause and acknowledge the crowd, looking less than happy about recent events before walking down the ramp.)
Eve: After losing to Cameron Ella Ava on top of how things went last week with the tag team match and his conversation with the Chairman… Payne is obviously in something of a foul mood. We knew to expect him but you wonder how things will go here with him ringside for this contest.
Gavin Kirkland: Well he’s got the closest thing out here to a set of boobs so— HEY!!!
(Xander grabs the back of Gavin’s chair and yanks it out from under him. Gavin thuds to the ground as Xander walks over and positions the chair in a corner near the barricade. Gavin grabs a steel folding chair from the timekeepers area and places it in his spot, grumbling under his breath.)
Gavin Kirkland: That was assault… or theft… what would you guys class it as?
(“Three Ain’t Enough” by Jim Johnston hits the speakers now as Ringmaster also makes his way out to the ring. He high fives a few fans, but he doesn’t look his usual goofy self.)
Deadprez: Ringmaster also looking like he’s a bit pissed off. Ryan Wilson has been a thorn in his side for ages. And you know he’s looking to finally get Wilson off his back at Under Siege!
Eve: Well they’ve been at each other’s throats for a while now. Ryan even kept Ringmaster from getting into the PURE Championship picture. And next week it all comes to a head in a Hardcore match!
(Ring master doesn’t even bother grabbing a chair, pacing back and forth at ringside as he waits. But he doesn’t have to wait long as “Awaken” by Dethklok hits and Ryan Wilson walks out looking as smug as he’s ever been. Clearly pleased to be in the main event. He struts out onto the stage looking like he just won the lottery.)
Gina Romano: Ladies and gentlemen, the following contest is scheduled for…
Crowd: ONE FALL!!
Gina Romano: AND IT IS OUR MAIN EVENT OF THE EVENING!
Gina Romano: Introducing first, making his way to the ring from Montreal, Quebec, Canada, weighing in at 220 pounds… RYAN WILSON!!!!!!
Deadprez: Wilson clearly ecstatic time have a chance to show off in front of Ringmaster but also he always wants to get his hands on the chairman, especially after all the times he called DEDEDE out as a member of The Score.
Eve: Well sometimes I think people should be careful what they wish for.
(Ryan slides into the ring, eyeing Ringmaster with a smirk as he steps to his corner, posing on the turnbuckles to boos from the crowd. His music then cuts and is replaced by “Let it Go” by A$AP Ferg as Mr. DEDEDE makes his way out to the stage to boos, also looking pissed off.)
Gina Romano: And his opponent, making his way to the ring from the Ryan Adams Estate in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic… weighing in at 235 pounds… he is an EAW Hall of Famer and the Chairman of the board… MR. DEDEDE!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: Ohhh… Im just gonna hide… DEDEDE has THAT look in his eyes…
Eve: The Chairman not pleased that Jenny Punk made this match without his consent. He made that much known earlier this week.
Deadprez: Yeah but now that gets taken out on Ryan Wilson. This is what DEDEDE does best.
(DEDEDE slides into the ring and—)
Eve: WILSON JUST BUMRUSHED DEDEDE BEFORE HE COULD EVEN STAND! WILSON TRYING TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THINGS EARLY ON!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Deadprez: WILSON JUMPING UP AND DRIVING KNEES INTO THE CHAIRMAN OVER AND OVER AGAIN! AND NOW HOLDING THAT KNEE IN PLACE ON DEDEDE’S SHOULDER AS WILSON GRABS THE ARM AND CRANKS IT BACK! HE COULD SEPARATE HIS ARM FROM THE SHOULDER SOCKET LIKE THIS! WILSON CRANKING BACK! AND NOW USING HIS FREE HAND TO DRIVE PUNCHES INTO THE BACK OF DEDEDE’S HEAD! RYAN THROWING EVERYTHING AT THE CHAIRMAN FROM THE GET GO! NOT LETTING UP! CRANKING THAT SHOULDER TIGHTER AND TIGHTER! HE WANTS THIS WIN AND HE WANTS IT BADLY!
Eve: Ringmaster is on the outside, he hasn’t taken his eyes off of Wilson. No change in his expression. Pure focus like a laser at his Under Siege opponent! Xander Payne on the other hand is all smiles as he watches damage being done to the chairman!
Gavin Kirkland: Wilson taking it to the chairman! Do you guys think he actually pulls this off?
Deadprez: Only time will tell! DEDEDE clearly in pain now as he searches for an escape! DEDEDE swinging his free arm back with an elbow but not making any contact! Wilson cranking that arm tight and still connecting with punches! DEDEDE trying to roll through but Wilson is positioned firmly on that shoulder!
Eve: Wilson came out with a plan and clearly he’s executing thus far! Really putting in some work on the chairman! DEDEDE searching! And finally slides himself back and gets feet on the ropes! DEDEDE looking angry! He didn’t fully prep for this match because it was booked without his consent, and he definitely wasn’t expecting the sneak attack before he could even finish getting in the ring! And now being forced to a rope break… DEDEDE is not happy right now!
Ref: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FIV—
Deadprez: Wilson finally relinquishes the hold and steps away from the chairman! Wilson looking full of confidence and swagger right now, strutting around the ring! He spots ringmaster outside and— WILSON PUTTING UP THE DOUBLE BIRDS TO RINGMASTER!
Eve: A clear show of disrespect during what may be a career performance tonight for Wilson! He turns to—
Gavin Kirkland: SPEAR! SPEAR! SPEAR!
Deadprez: DEDEDE JUST TORE WILSON IN HALF WITH THAT SPEAR! WILSON TOOK HIS EYE OFF THE BALL AND PAID THE PRICE! But look! DEDEDE rolling off and clutching at that shoulder! He hit the spear with the same shoulder that Wilson was damaging! But DEDEDE stretching it out before turning to look for the pin…
Eve: But Wilson rolling underneath the bottom rope! Say what you like about Ryan Wilson… but he’s been here for a while and that experience does play a factor! He’s under the bottom rope and on the apron, safe from the pin fall—
Gavin Kirkland: But not safe from much else…
Deadprez: RINGMASTER GRABS WILSON OFF THE APRON! AND HE DRIVES WILSON SPINE FIRST INTO THE BARRICADE!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Deadprez: The referee forced to wave off this matchup! Wilson being manhandled now as Ringmaster is finally unleashing on him! Stomping into Ryan’s stomach! Wilson scrambling now! Trying to crawl away! Wilson lunging into the timekeeper’s area! But Ringmaster still following! Not letting Wilson esca—
Eve: WILSON JUST BLASTED RINGMASTER IN THE FACE WITH THE RING BELL! RINGMASTER KNOCKED BACK INTO THE BARRICADE! AND WILSON WITH A CLOTHESLINE THAT SENDS HIM OVER AND INTO THE CROWD! WILSON UP ON THE BARRICADE AND A LEAPING SPLASH ONTO RINGMASTER!
Deadprez: BUT RINGMASTER ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY AND WILSON CRASHES GUT FIRST ONTO A FOLDING CHAIR! HE TRIES TO GET UP BUT— RINGMASTER JUST BLINDED WILSON WITH A FAN’S BEER! RINGMASTER WIPING BLOOD FROM OVER HIS EYE WHERE THAT BELL HIT! HE GRABS THE FOLDING CHAIR AND PICKS IT UP! HE SWINGS IT FOR RYAN’S HEAD!
Gavin Kirkland: BUT LOOK! BACK IN THE RING!
Eve: DEDEDE is watching the brawl from the ring! BUT XANDER HAS SLID IN BEHIND HIM! DEDEDE TURNS AROUND— XANDER WITH A KICK TO THE GUT! HE PULLS DEDEDE IN! SETTING UP FOR THE PAYNEKILLER! THE SAME MOVE THAT TOOK DEDEDE OUT!
Deadprez: BUT DEDEDE PULLS HIS HEAD OUT OF POSITION! HE DRIVES XANDER BACKWARDS AND INTO THE CORNER! DEDEDE LAYING INTO PAYNE WITH FOREARMS! PAYNE LOOKS DAZED! DEDEDE POPS OFF AND HITS THE ROPES! HE COMES BACK! RAPTURE! THE HELLUVA KICK CONNECTS RIGHT ACROSS XANDER’S FACE! PAYNE SLUMPS TO THE MAT! AND DEDEDE JUST STALKING HIM NOW!
Eve: DEDEDE setting up for that spear… looking to tear through Xander like tissue paper! Xander trying to pull himself up! Xander turning and— DEDEDE CHARGES WITH THE SPEAR!
Deadprez: BUT XANDER SIDESTEPS AND DEDEDE COLLIDES WITH THAT INJURED SHOULDER INTO THE RING POST! AND XANDER NOT WASTING ANYTIME! HE DRAGS DEDEDE OUT OF THE CORNER! HE PUSHES THE CHAIRMAN INTO THE ROPES! DEDEDE BOUNDS BACK! LAST SEDATION! THE POP UP POWERBOMB DRIVES DEDEDE HARD INTO THE MAT!
Gavin Kirkland: HOLY SHIT DID YOU SEE HOW HIGH HE BOUNCED OFF THE IMPACT?!?
Eve: AND XANDER NOW WALKING OVER DEDEDE! STEPPING ON THAT SHOULDER AND GRINDING HIS BOOT IN! XANDER SLIDING OUT OF THE RING AND SMIRKING AT WHAT HE JUST DID!
Deadprez: But he nearly got hit with that spear, and he got rocked from that Rapture. Xander came out on top here… but all that from a sneak attack from behind. Should he really be so cocky right now with a match against one of the best of all times?
Eve: I guess we have to wait for Under Siege to find out…
(The final shot shows DEDEDE still motionless as Xander walks backwards up the ramp, Ringmaster and Ryan Wilson still at each other’s throats in the crowd.)
