(EAW Intro Plays)
(“DNA” by Kendrick Lamar begins as the Showdown intro plays for the broadcast. Camera opens to the packed Indira Gandhi Indoor Stadium in New Delhi, India as the fans cheer uproariously. The shot pans over the fans as several signs can be seen such as “गांधी शांति चाहते हैं”, “लेकिन युद्ध मजेदार है”, and “सैंडविच” before cutting to the commentary desk with Eve and Deadprez.)
Eve: HELLO EVERYONE! IT IS SATURDAY NIGHT AND THAT MEANS ITS TIME FOR EAW’S FLAGSHIP SHOW, SATURDAY NIGHT SHOWDOWN!!! WE ARE LIVE FROM THE INDIRA GANDHI INDOOR STADIUM IN NEW DELHI, INDIA AND WE ARE HOT OFF THE HEELS OF GRAND RAMPAGE! MY NAME IS EVE AND AS ALWAYS, I AM JOINED BY THE IRREPLACEABLE DEADPREZ!
Deadprez: Thanks, Eve! And we have TWO new champions to celebrate tonight! First off, SOSA Henderson went after it in a fantastic Steel Cage match at Grand Rampage! And he kept his promise to be the man to dethrone the Visual Prophet and for the first time in what seems like quite a while, the New Breed Champion calls Showdown his home! We’ve been given word that we will hear from the champion himself later tonight!
Eve: Cant wait to hear what SOSA has to say after his big win, but we do have another champion to hear from tonight! Ahren Fournier, TLA, Chris Elite, and Malcolm Jones went to war in a fatal four way of stellar proportions over the EAW Championship and at the end of the day, it was Malcolm Jones who walked out as champion! And he is expected to address the EAW Universe here tonight! And that’s not all we have for you! Two of EAW’s newest and brightest stars will go to battle as the ever impressive Adam Graves takes on Ronin, who got a great win in his Fight Grid debut and is debuting tonight as the newest member of the Showdown roster!
Deadprez: Also, Damon Diesel and Jack Haze have not seen eye to eye ever since the six man tag match where they came to blows several weeks back! Tonight they will settle the score in a No Disqualifications match! That, and we are expecting the return match of former New Breed Champion, Michael Bishop aka The Revenant here tonight!
Eve: And in our main event, rivals will team together as Chris Elite will work alongside TLA to take on Jax Walker and Drake King of the Round Table! It’s a star studded show tonight and we thank you all for tuning in!
Deadprez: But Eve, I think the biggest question here tonight is surrounding something else. The Grand Rampage match was full of shocking moments but most of all, the return of Diamond Cage. I’ve asked Hurricane Hawk myself and even he doesn’t know what the status of Cage is as a member of the EAW roster. Apparently, until the music hit, Hawk didn’t even know that Cage was there that night!
Eve: it’s a big looming question for the blue brand. He hadn’t been seen since the Extreme Elimination Chamber and now we have to wonder, is he back? Or was that just an appearance?
(“No Regrets” by Pusha T hits as Hurricane Hawk walks out to a big cheer. He has a microphone in hand as he makes his way down to the ring.)
Gina Romano: Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome the Showdown General Manager and EAW Hall of Famer… HUURRRRRIICCCCANNNNNNEEEEE HHHAAAAWKK!
Deadprez: The Showdown GM is here and looks ready to kick off the show for us! Grand Rampage was a big night for the blue brand!
Eve: It really was and Hawk has to be pleased with the turnout it brought here tonight!
(Hawk climbs up the steps and sits on a rope to let Gina out before stepping through the ropes and into the ring.)
Hurricane Hawk: Man… what a show we had at Grand Rampage, huh?
Hurricane Hawk: First off, let me congratulate Jamie O’Hara and Serena Bennett for their respective wins! After having the Openweight Championship come to Showdown as well as King of Elite this year, I half expected to see a member of the blue brand win the Grand Rampage but that didn’t happen. But speaking of the King of Elite, it was cashed in successfully yet again as I can now send my congratulations to the new EAW Champion, Malcolm Jones!!
Hurricane Hawk: And while we’re at it, my congratulations to the New Breed Champion, SOSA Henderson!
Hurricane Hawk: Damn, y’all are all about it tonight! Or are you just cheering for words you recognize? ……….Pizza Boy?
(Hawk shrugs at the cheers.)
Hurricane Hawk: Ill still take it. Im not gonna stand out here and take up too much of everyone’s time. We’ve got a great show for you tonight and we’re gonna get to it. But I wanted to take a moment and address our big supershow happening next month, the Showdown exclusive, the second annual WRATH OF THE DRAGON!! And we expect this to be one of the biggest shows of the year! There’s still quite a bit yet to be decided for the show but rest assured details are coming together and we will—
(“Come As You Are” by Nirvana hits as the crowd looks around confused.)
Deadprez: Who’s music is that? I haven’t heard that one here before for anyone?
(The crowd suddenly roars as Diamond Cage walls out onto the stage with a microphone in hand.)
Eve: ITS CAGE! HES HERE! HES REALLY BACK AND HES HERE TONIGHT!
(Cage makes his way down the ramp with his eyes fixated on the ring. He rolls in and looks around at the crowd as they cheer. Not smiling, not frowning, just looking.)
Deadprez: Hes out here interrupting Hawk so I wonder what he wants!
(Cage continues to walk around and Hawk watches him from the corner. After a moment, Hawk begins to look a bit annoyed.)
Hurricane Hawk: Hey man. It’s great to see you fighting fit and all, but is there a reason you’re out here? All those months I don’t even get a damn returned phone call and now you’re gonna just interrupt me?
(Cage freezes and turns to face Hawk. He cocks his head to the side, giving him the same crazed expression he’s had this whole time.)
Hurricane Hawk: Yeah. Cage. What’s the deal?
(Cage takes a step towards Hawk and lifts the microphone as if he’s about to speak, but doesn’t.)
Crowd: WELCOME BACK! WELCOME BACK! WELCOME BACK!
(Cage stares with fixated eyes at Hawk before suddenly dropping the microphone and getting nose to nose with the general Manager.)
Eve: CAGE LOOKS LIKE HES ABOUT TO ATTACK HURRICANE HAWK!! WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON HERE!!
Deadprez: THAT LOOK IN HIS EYES CANT BE ANYTHING GOOD! HE LOOKS BLOODTHIRSTY!
(Hawk begins to remove his blazer, not backing down but keeping an eye on Cage.)
Eve: Hawk isn’t gonna give an inch! But Cage isn’t even blinking! Just right in the General Manager’s face!
(Cage keeps his position, looking right through Hawk and into his soul before suddenly dropping down and rolling out of the ring, making his way back up the ramp.)
Deadprez: What… what’s happening?
Eve: I have no idea, DP. But I think Hawk just let out a sigh of relief. Cage came to send a message. He’s back, and not even the GM is safe…
(Hawk puts his blazer back on in the ring, watching Cage make his exit with a confused gaze.)

(The camera opens to Gina Romano in the middle of the ring)
Gina Romano: Ladies and gentlemen the following contest is scheduled for…
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(“Buzzin’” by Mann plays to enthusiastic cheers. MTV walks out with a puzzled face but as soon as he sees the crowd he smiles and walks to the ring)
Gina Romano: Introducing first, residing in Beverly Hills, California, weighing in at 165 pounds…M…T…V!
Deadprez: MTV has been having a stop and start time so far on Showdown, he’s been getting a few wins but he’s also been racking up a handful of losses, I wouldn’t count MTV out of this match, but still.
Eve: Yeah I wouldn’t, he can always turn the tables on someone and MTV’s got the support of the crowd on his side!
(“Buzzin’” by Mann fades off as MTV hops into the ring and leans in the corner. Only for “For Whom The Bell Tolls” by Metallica to play and the crowd to go unhinged. Michael Bishop comes out to the support of the crowd)
Gina Romano: And his opponent, from Chicago, Illinois, weighing in at 247 pounds, MICHAEL…BISHOP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Deadprez: HE’S BACK, HE’S BACK!
Eve: Yes Dead he is, we haven’t seen Bishop in the ring for the better part of a year now, he’s here with a purpose for sure.
(Bishop gets into the ring and circles around before heading to his corner, the ref signals for the bell)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Deadprez: This match is underway… they lock up, Michael pushing MTV to the ropes, clean break. Circling, they lock up again, MTV bringing Bishop to the ground, OW, A PUNCH TO THE FACE! That didn’t make Bishop so happy- OH MICHAEL HAS FLOORED MTV WITH A SUPERMAN PUNCH! MICHAEL IS LANDING ELBOWS ON THE FACE OF MTV! Bishop lifting MTV up… BELLY TO BELLY SUPLEX! He goes for the pin!
Ref: ONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! TWO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Eve: KICKOUT! MTV hanging on for dear life as the man once called “The Revenant” claws at him. MTV brought right back up, OH BISHOP SLAMS MTV INTO THE CORNER, irish whip into the other, MTV coming back tho he’s running… SPEAR! SPEAR! MTV rolling out of the ring as Michael asks for more, Bishop leaving the ring picking up a downed MTV…VERTICAL SUPLEX ON THE RINGSIDE AREA!
Eve: Michael Bishop isn’t giving remorse as he’s toying with MTV kicking him around. Wait, MTV’s got the leg I think he’s trying to pull Bishop down…OH MY GOD! BISHOP STOMPS HIS FOOT DOWN ON THE FACE OF MTV!
Ref: TWO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THREE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Deadprez: MTV is lifeless as he’s pulled right up- BISHOP SLAMMING MTV HEAD FIRST ONTO THE RINGPOST, I don’t think he’s done…
Deadprez: OH! MICHAEL BISHOP IS REPEATEDLY SLAMMING MTV’S HEAD INTO THE RINGPOST, HE DOESN’T CARE ABOUT THE REFS COUNT HE WANTS TO TEAR THIS MAN APART!
Eve: MTV finally rolled back into the ring, oh god Bishop mounting MTV, THE GROUND N’ POUND, BISHOP MAKING MTV’S HEAD BOUNCE OFF THE FLOOR MULTIPLE TIMES, MTV HAS A FAMILY FOR CHRIST SAKE! A FINAL KNEE TO THE FACE AS MTV IS DEAD ON THE GROUND! Bishop bringing MTV backup…JACKHAMMER, THE EXECUTIONER CONNECTS, BISHOP WITH THE PIN!
Ref: ONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! TWO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THREE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“For Whom The Bell Tolls” starts up again as the crowd roars for Michael Bishop as he gets up to his feet)
Gina Romano: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN YOUR WINNER, MICHAEL BISHOP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Deadprez: Absolutely dominant return for Michael Bishop tonight. A statement win to say the very least!
Eve: There’s certainly no doubt about that and you have to think he’s looking to keep that up in the coming weeks as he’s missed out on so much here in Elite Answers Wrestling. You have to wonder what kind of damage he’s going to cause here in the coming weeks!
(Commercial recapping Thursday Night Empire and promoting next week’s episode, featuring the Hardcore Match between Celes Dumont and Consuela Rose Ava for the Specialists Championship.)
(Camera opens to find Cori Simmons standing backstage with a microphone.)
Cori Simmons: Ladies and gentlemen, I’m joined at this time by a man who claims he has a major score to settle after recent weeks but especially after the Grand Rampage. Please welcome… Justiciar Eric!
(Eric steps into frame, an agitated look on his face.)
Cori Simmons: So, Eric, you feel that someone has wronged you?
Justiciar Eric: Are you joking me? Have you even been paying attention?!? Of course I have! Shane Gates ROBBED the EAW Universe of their true main event at Pain for Pride!
Cori Simmons: …the true main event?
Justiciar Eric: ME YOU DUMB BITCH! ME! ME! ME! DO YOU THINK IM CALLED “THE ONE” FOR NO REASON?!? I AM THE ONLY ONE WITH THE TALENT, THE CHARISMA, THE CAPABILITY TO CARRY THE FUTURE OF THIS COMPANY AND THE ENTIRE INDUSTRY!!! IT WAS MY DESTINY TO WIN THE GRAND RAMPAGE AND THE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP AT PAIN FOR PRIDE!!!
Cori Simmons: But you were eliminated rather quickly by—
Justiciar Eric: BY CHARLIE MARR?!? AND WHO’S FAULT WAS THAT? HUH? SHANE FUCKING GATES! THATS WHO! HE DISTRACTED ME FROM BEING PROPERLY FOCUSED ON THE WHOLE MATCH AND CHARLIE TOOK HIS INCOMPETENT ASS OUT WHILE I WAS FORCED TO SUFFER BY MERE ASSOCIATION WITH THAT BOTTOM DWELLER!
Cori Simmons: Well—
Justiciar Eric: SO!!! I am here to deliver a message… Shane Gates… consider yourself lucky that someone from another brand won the Grand Rampage… my destiny is still possible. Hurricane Hawk will still have to declare a challenger for the EAW Championship at Wrath of the Dragon and at Pain for Pride. I will be one of those challengers. Shane Gates, you are nothing more than a speed bump on my road to glory. You are nothing more than a mistake made by the management team and while my contract may still be standard for the time being… soon enough… yours will be nonexistent.
(Eric walks off after the last word.)
Cori Simmons: Umm. Thank you for the time… I guess?
(Suddenly, Hurricane Hawk steps in from behind, almost startling Cori.)
Hurricane Hawk: Hey Cori… we need to talk. Come to my office.
(Cori looks stunned for a moment before composing herself and following Hawk.)
(Commercial for Fenty Beauty featuring various Empire elitists… and Erebus Jennings.)
(The camera cuts to Gina Romano in the ring.)
Gina Romano: The following contest is scheduled for one fall!!!
(“Kai Tangata” by Alien Weaponry hits to cheers from the crowd.)
Gina Romano: Introducing first from Los Angeles, California weighing in at 239 pounds he is “The Pacific Storm” ROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONIN!!!!!
(Ronin makes his way down the ramp before sliding into the ring as he looks ready for action.)
Eve: Ronin seems like he could definitely make an impact on this business someday. I might be wrong but I see great things to come for this man!
Deadprez: For once I actually agree with you Eve. While it disgusts me that I actually have to support someone getting cheered by these people in the audience I think this guy has what it takes to really get the job done which is all that matters. Hopefully he won’t be swayed by the simping of all these losers and incels! Ronin is a shark and he is going to feast on everyone in his path!
(“Engines of Hate” by Nevermore hits to boos from the crowd.)
Gina Romano: And his opponent now residing in San Diego, California weighing in at 320 pounds he is “The Great Decimator” ADAMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRAVES!!!
(Adam Graves comes out yelling at the fans at ringside telling them they are all jokes before remembering they don’t speak English and entering the ring smirking at his opponent.)
Eve: Well this guy sure has an attitude but he is clearly an impressive beast of a man.
Deadprez: Which is all that really matters Eve. Adam Graves is simply higher on the evolutionary food chain! You can’t fault him for that! He is going to clean all these weak little men who thought they could make it in this business out of his way and he is going to start with Ronin!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Eve: We are underway as Adam Graves is still shit talking a random audience member in the crowd who is heckling him. RONIN BLASTS OUT OF THE CORNER AT GRAVES!
Deadprez: Ronin takes Adam Graves down with a high speed Spear as he immediately goes for the cover!!!
Referee: ONE!!! TWO!!!!
Eve: Adam Graves kicks out with authority! He really needs to keep his eye on the ball! Ronin immediately mounts on top of Adam Graves and begins to punch him anywhere he can! Graves blocking his face with his arms before using one to shove Ronin off of him! Ronin lands on his feet as Adam Graves is back up. Graves goes in with a Clothesline but Ronin ducks underneath it! Ronin with a Rollup on Graves from behind! NO! Graves blocked it and he grabs Ronin by the neck pulling him back up to his feet! But Ronin grabs the arm of Graves pulling him back down and he has a Cross Armbar applied! Too close to the ropes however as the referee forces the break. Ronin reluctantly releases the hold as Adam Graves rolls out onto the apron for a breather.
Deadprez: But Ronin is relentless as he comes off the opposite corner with a Baseball Slide sending Graves to the outside! And now Ronin follows it up leaping over the top with a Flying Bodypress… Oh…
Eve: Adam Graves caught him! Graves holding Ronin in his arms as he slams him back first on top of the steel steps! But he is still holding onto him! He rams Ronin’s head into the steel ring post and then tosses him back into the ring! Graves rolls back in as well as he goes for the cover on Ronin!
Referee: ONE!!!! TWOO!!!!! THRR-
Deadprez: Ronin kicks out! Graves grabs Ronin by the arm dragging him back up to his feet as he twists the arm around making Ronin cringe in pain. But Ronin fires back with the other arm knocking Graves over with a hard shot to the neck. Ronin now grabbing Graves’ arm pulling him back up to his feet but then yanking hard on the arm dropping his opponent yet again. Ronin yanks Graves back up but Graves pulls back as Ronin falls over landing on top of Graves! But Graves had his fist up and it collided right with Ronin’s face! Both men sprawled out now as they get back to their feet… Graves with a thunderous Clothesline to Ronin! But Ronin rolls through back to his feet as he stares across at the disbelieving Graves!
Eve: Ronin and Graves lock up in the ring as Graves uses his power to push his opponent back into the corner… but Ronin breaks free and punches Graves hard in the face! Graves staggers back into the opposite corner as Ronin follows him grabbing him from behind and slamming the head into the turnbuckle!!! Graves falls back into the ring on hands and knees… but Ronin off the ropes… Running Knee Strike connects to the head of Graves who is knocked out! Ronin flips him over onto his back and goes for the pin!!!
Referee: ONE!!!! TWOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!
Deadprez: Kickout by Adam Graves! Ronin thought he had it there but doesn’t look like he’s ready to give up yet as he quickly locks Graves into a Sleeper Hold. Graves looks out of it but Ronin is struggling to keep the big man down! Graves powering back up to his feet with Ronin clenched onto his back… Graves charges backwards ramming Ronin into the turnbuckle as he breaks free of the hold!!! Ronin tries to roll free but gets caught with a Clothesline from Graves! This time it connects! Ronin up again as he looks unbalanced and takes a shot to the head from Graves but Ronin fires back with a flurry of punches that appears to be born of desperation!
Eve: I am definitely impressed by the fight of this man! He has clearly taken some damage but he is giving it all he’s got! Adam Graves staggered back as he seems just as surprised at the fighting spirit of Ronin! BIG BOOT! Graves just kicked Ronin’s head off! The cover!!!
Referee: ONE!!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! THRRRRRRRRR-
Deadprez: Kickout by Ronin! Adam Graves looks like he is about to throw a tantrum as he begins pounding on the chest of Ronin like a mad caveman! Ronin coughing now as Graves is clearly doing some damage with those blows. Graves grabs Ronin by the skull as he pulls him up… Ronin with a slap to the face of Graves! Graves is enraged as he grabs Ronin by the throat with both hands! He pulls Ronin up and onto his shoulders…
Eve: BOMBS AWAY!!! ADAM GRAVES TO THE COVER!!!
Referee: ONEEE!!! TWOOO!!! THREEEEEEEEEE!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Gina Romano: Here is your winner… ADAM GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRAVES!!!
(“Engines of Hate” by Nevermore hits to the dissatisfaction of the crowd.)
Deadprez: Salty much?
Eve: You wish.
Deadprez: Adam Graves proving he is absolutely unstoppable! He is going to run through the entire Showdown roster! Mark my words!
Eve: I’ll be sure to remind you of that as soon as he takes his first L. Give props to Ronin though. He showed some serious fighting spirit and in the long run that could definitely pay off for him! However, tonight was not that night! Adam Graves proving his dominance once again!!!

(Camera opens to a shot of the Titantron as “Love SOSA” plays and SOSA Henderson comes from behind the curtains alongside Serena Bennett to a huge pop from the New Delhi, India crowd. SOSA Henderson is sporting his traditional black leather vest with shades and the New Breed Championship around his waist and Serena Bennett is sporting similar gear with her shades on and a blue jacket)
Gina Romano: Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome the 2019 Women’s Grand Rampage Winner, Serena Bennett! AND THE NEEEEEEWWWWWWWW BREED CHAMPION! SOOOOSSSAAA HHEEENNNNDDDEEERSSSOOOONNNNN!
Crowd: SOSA! SOSA! SOSA! SOSA!
(As the couple approaches the ring, SOSA escorts Serena inside then pose their signature taunts for the raucous crowd. Serena Bennett snatches the microphone from Gina Romano as SOSA unhooks his championship, afterward standing on the top turnbuckle and raising it high up in the air)
Crowd: Serena! SOSA! Serena! SOSA! Serena! SOSA!
Serena Bennett: Ladies and gentlemen, BEHOLD YOUR NEWWWW BREEEEDDD MAJJJESSSTTTYYYY! SOSSSSSAAA HEEEENNNDDDEERRRSOOONNN!
Crowd: SOSA! SOSA! SOSA! SOSA!
Serena Bennett: I knew my boo’ could do it! That bitch Veena Adams wasn’t goin’ to stop my man from winning. And I just want to say, I’m so proud of you babe. (Serena looks at SOSA staring eye-to-eye) You deserve this moment and many more. You worked hard to be in this position and it’s time to celebrate so how about we make it official?
(Serena Bennett points over at the timekeeper as SOSA Henderson wanders about while looking at Serena being handed a covered item. She smiles and uncovers the item to reveal a golden crown with the words “KING SOSA” engraved in the middle of the crown)
Serena Bennett: Here’s a crown for your royal majesty! You’ve done a splendid job, my dear!
(Serena Bennett places the crown over SOSA Henderson’s head as he smiles and hugs Serena after being handed the microphone from her.)
SOSA: Thank you, it fits perfectly, my darling! First off, I can’t go out without saying how much I can’t thank you enough for supporting me at the Grand Rampage. So, guess what? I made a little trip down the Nile River. (SOSA gets on one knee as the crowd starts buzzing)
Deadprez: A proposal?!
(Serena stares down at SOSA with a huge smirk on her face as SOSA grabs her hand and looks into her eyes)
SOSA: I would also love to congratulate you, my royal Queen for winning the Women’s Grand Rampage and also for everything else you do. You deserve the world my lady and I’m going to make sure that you have it all. Therefore… BEHOLD!
(SOSA Henderson pulls out a ring case and flips it open to reveal Cleopatra’s 2013 Hall of Fame ring)
SOSA: I found this perfect souvenir lying backstage on an episode of Empire and thought to myself, “Oh this lovely jewelry should belong to the rightful Queen of EAW.” And it’s a better replacement for the fake 50 dollar jewelry from Veena Adams. So here you go, my sparklin’ sunshine.
(SOSA Henderson places the Hall of Fame ring on Serena Bennett’s ring finger as she quickly hugs him tightly and they both share a compassionate kiss before SOSA turns his attention back towards the crowd)
Crowd: SOSA! SOSA! SOSA! SOSA!
SOSA: Thank you, thank you, thank you. It feels good to be champion here in the EAW. I’ve been through all the trials and tribulations and I must say, I don’t regret a single thing. Every single day, I’ve strived and worked hard despite what others may think about me. I’m always determined to make sure I and mines are good. I will also like to hand it to Visual Prophet, he’s a true freak of nature but he couldn’t stop SOSA and his New Breed Majestic ways! And now it’s the point and time for a new era. It’s time for a better man to represent the new breed division. Most importantly, you’re looking at the future! I’ve been destined for great things and this is one of them! I have the perfect girl by my side. I have my city watching me every single step of the way. And now I have the New Breed Championship! My goal is to make it sure I’ve passed up the great reigns of this title. I will do better justice than the past champions. I will prove that I’m better than our male’s Grand Rampage winner, Jamie O’Hara when I’ve eclipsed his 240-day championship reign. I will welcome all challengers… From Empire to Voltage, to Dynasty and Showdown. Hell, I will even invite the rejectiles back to the EAW if they want a piece! But you know what… I know a certain guy that loves to run his mouth all over social media. I haven’t known the guy for a week and he’s already the most annoying pieces of shit I’ve ever come across. He’s better known as one of Voltage’s low-card bitches. The boul’s name is Korey Gaines.
Crowd: BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! KOREY SUCKS! KOREY SUCKS! KOREY SUCKS!
SOSA: Yeah… Ever since becoming New Breed Champion, this guy has become too friendly. He’s complimented me more than once and thinks that’ll grant him a chance at becoming New Breed Champion? Korey, my man… I hope you’re watching so listen up closely. I don’t know what your GM’s over there are teaching ya’ll but over here at Showdown, we don’t do friendly shit. We some masculine men over here. We come prepared and ready to kick some ass, so I have an offer for you… Get from off your knees, deactivate your social media account for a week, and stop sucking on Viz’s dick and bring your ass here on Showdown next week. I know you been granted a shot at this title back during your best friends reign but now that I’ve got the belt, I don’t see them clamoring to get you in here. So how about we do this thing? Allow for your NEW BREED MAJESTY! Allow him to show you what it feels like to step inside the ring with a real champion and not those bozos you’ve been used to facing. This could be the first step to save your invisible career. You can stop pretending to be everyone’s friend and stop being a fan to people that don’t give a shit about you. Then you can jump levels to this shit and become a real man. Do you think you’ll give me a better challenge than what Viz did? I hope your ass is ready for this pressure because I’m about to smoke your ass in the middle of this ring. And that goes for anybody that wants it with SOSA! Do you want this New Breed Championship? Do you want this title? THEN COME TRY ME! Korey Gaines, you’re first in line so I should be expecting your soft ass next week. My journey on surpassing 240 days will begin… AND IT BEGINS NOW! THE DAYS ARE BEING NUMBERED AND THESE BITCHES LOVE SOSA!
(“Love SOSA” plays again through the speakers as SOSA Henderson drops the microphone while Serena Bennett claps as the pair pose once again for the crowd before the camera fades into a commercial)
(Commercial for tan couches featuring Xander Payne.)
(Camera opens to Gina Romano in the ring.)
Gina Romano: The following contest is a special no disqualification match, and it’s scheduled for ONE FALL!!!
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!
(‘Revolution’ by The Beatles with the beginning of the song having the usual electric guitar riff of “Revolution” bursts through the arena sound system signalling the presence of Jack Haze to the pop of the crowd. “You say you want a revolution”….echoes throughout the building. Jack comes through the curtain and quickly approaches the very top of the entrance ramp, energetic and smiling.)
Gina Romano: And introducing his opponent….He hails from Santa Monica, California….He weighs in at TWO HUNDRED AND ELEVEN POUNDS….HE’S ‘THE ENLIGHTENED’……JAAAACCCCKKKKK HAAAAZZZZEEEEE!!!
Deadprez: Fresh off his first appearance in Australia at the Grand Rampage, where he competed in the Grand Rampage match we have Jack Haze! Personally, I feel he could’ve done better. But as luck would have it he managed to come in at a time during the match where everyone he and many others ran into a complete juggernaut in Charlie Marr, who was in the midst of a record breaking night!
Eve: Indeed, DP! But it’s time to move on from the Grand Rampage to focus on tonight, a No Disqualification match against a guy like Damon Diesel is no joke! The guy keeps finding his way into these types of matches where he has gotten to dish out his fair share of beatings to opponents, and I’m sure tonight will be no exception. But we all know a guy like Jack Haze will be ready!
(He half-skips down the ramp while simultaneously tagging the hands of fans. When he gets to the end of the ramp, he slaps one last hand and then re-positions himself to be standing in the center of the outside ring area as he bounces up and down to warm up and then takes a deep breath (“But when you talk about destruction/Don’t you know that you can count me out?”). He then gets a running start and smoothly slides into the ring, all the way to the middle.)
(“You Only Live Once (Instrumental)” by Suicide Silence starts playing as the stage gets filled with smoke and the lights play around in synchron with the music. Slowly, Damon Diesel comes out making his way to the ring, as he climbs the steel stairs and rising his hands up causing the pyro to blast. )
Gina Romano: And introducing his opponent….He hails from Orlando, Florida….He weighs in at TWO HUNDRED AND FIFTEEN POUNDS….He’s known as THE UNCHAINED BEAST…..DAAAAAAMMMMOOONNNN DIEEEEESSSSSEEEELLLL!!
Deadprez: Damon Diesel on his way to the ring! A man who also shared the ring with the breakout man of that Grand Rampage in Charlie Marr, Damon Diesel! Damon had himself a nice showing at the Grand Rampage!
Eve: He came in the final ten men of the match after Diamond Cage made his emotional return much to everyone’s surprise! Damon even managed to get an elimination in the process, which I’m sure should do wonders for his confidence!
(In the ring Damon Diesel and Jack Haze are staring at each other from across the ring opposite of the other, not taking their eyes off the prize for a moment, and this time that’s for mere bragging rights. The referee signals for the bell.)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Deadprez: So much pride on the line here, no doubt. The animosity that these two have had on going since before Under Siege, you have to wonder if this is the kind of grudge match that can finally bring it all to an end! Both of these men are looking to tear the other apart to do so! It’s no disqualification, and each man will surely look to find the advantage they need to secure the victory! Both men are now walking up to each other toward center ring. Both seem to have a mouth full to say at the moment, can’t quite make any of it out from this position and neither can our cameras! But whatever is being was enough to start a shoving match in the center of the ring as each man just gave the other a nice good shove that sent the other’s momentum shifting backwards! Now Jack Haze and Damon Diesel begin trading rights back and forth! This onslaught from both hasn’t let up just yet, until….Jack Haze stumbles back a bit! Damon Diesel with a clothesline attempt that misses it’s mark! Jack Haze ducked the clothesline attempt! Jack Haze grabs Damon Diesel around the head and neck as he cradles him inward! He may be looking for a DDT attempt here! But No! Damon Diesel at the moment is able to withstand the strength of Jack Haze and powers him into the corner instead! Back elbow smash to the face by Damon Diesel to Jack Haze! And another! Damon Diesel now begins pounding away with rapid fire fists to the head of Jack Haze! BUT JACK HAZE…..HE’S HAD A ENOUGH! JACK REVERSES THE MOMENTUM! NOW IT’S DAMON DIESEL ON THE RECEIVING END IN THAT CORNER! RAPID FIRE CLOSED FISTS BY JACK HAZE! HIGH KICK THAT TAKES DAMON DIESEL OFF HIS FEET FOR A MOMENT! DAMON DIESEL COMES STUMBLING OUT OF THE CORNER JUST AS JACK HAZE WAS REBOUNDING OFF THE ROPES! ROLLING WHEEL KICK BY JACK! DOWN GOES DAMON DIESEL! DIESEL BACK UP! BUT JACK WAS READY! ANNNNNDDDD A ROLLING CRADLE BY JACK HAZE TO DAMON DIESEL! AND FINALLY A PIN!
Eve: And a kick out by Damon Diesel! Damon stumbles back to his feet and nearly falls forward and back down to the canvas but he manages to catch himself on the ropes instead before finally sliding out of the ring! He’s had enough! Damon Diesel now pulling up the apron, and remember folks, this is all perfectly legal! Anything goes in this match! You can brutalize your opponent by any means necessary! Jack Haze is now sliding out of the ring! Before Diesel can grab an item from under the ring Jack grabs him up! And now their slugging it out again! Now Jack spears Damon Diesel into the ring apron!

DIESEL GRABBING UP JACK HAZE BY HIS HAIR AND NOW HE WHIPS HIM WITH SUCH VELOCITY AND HE GOES FLYING INTO THE CORNER OF THE BARRICADE WHERE OUR TIME KEEPER’S AREA IS! JACK HAZE JUST LANDED HARD AGAIN! THANKFULLY OUR TIMEKEEPER WAS ABLE TO GET OUT OF DODGE BEFORE SUFFERING THE REPERCUSSIONS HAD HE NOT!
Deadprez: Now Damon Diesel goes back to reaching under that ring apron again! Jack Haze trying to regather himself, and Diesel has pulled out a pry bar! Oh my God. Diesel slams brings the pry bar down hard on the steel steps which makes a loud banging sound as this gets the crowd buzzing. Jack Haze is still trying to recover. Jack stumbles back to his feet! Jack turns around and here comes Damon Diesel! AND HE JUST USED THAT PRY BAR TO NAIL JACK HAZE SQUARE IN THE HEAD KNOCKING HIM FLAT ON HIS BACK! THE REFEREE ADMONISHES DAMON DIESEL, BUT DIESEL JUST SHOVES HIM TO THE SIDE WHERE HE FALLS DOWN TO A SEATED POSITION AS JACK HAZE HIS CRAWLING ON ALL FOURS! JACK IS NOW A BLOODY MESS! HIS FOREHEAD IS BUSTED OPEN! Diesel now drops the pry bar and reaches under the ring apron right in front of our announce table as Jack Haze is pulling himself up over on the left using the apron for leverage! Jack Haze is pulling himself up. Damon Diesel pulls out a trash can lid now! LOOK OUT!! SPRINGBOARD PLANCHA BY JACK HAZE OFF THE TOP TURNBUCKLE THAT JUST TOOK OUT DAMON DIESEL! WOW! WHERE DID JACK FIND THE BURST OF ENERGY SUDDENLY!!?? JACK IS TRYING TO GET BACK TO HIS FEET WITH EVERYTHING HE’S GOT AS IS DIESEL BUT JACK, HE JUST PICKED UP THAT TRASH CAN LID! AND WHAM!! JACK HAZE JUST CLOCKED DAMON DIESEL RIGHT UP SIDE THE HEAD WITH EVERYTHING HE HAD BEHIND THAT SWING AND DOWN GOES DAMON DIESEL!
Eve: This melee is regular round of the fisticuffs as these two are showing how much they absolutely despise the other! Jack Haze grabbing up Damon Diesel by his hair now! Dropkick by Jack sends Damon Diesel into steel steps! The crowd is into this one, DP! Jack Haze reaches under the ring apron now, he’s showing he’s willing to get his hands dirty too! What’s Jack got in store for Damon Diesel!!?? Oh…uh-oh. Jack Haze is pulling out a table! What could he possibly be thinking to do with a table? This doesn’t look to good as Jack Haze is now pulling the legs on that table out right out here in front of our announce table and now he’s propping it upright! Damon Diesel is trying to recover the best he can, but here comes Jack Haze! He grabs Damon Diesel by the hair again and then slams his face into the steel steps a few times! Man this Damon Diesel can sure take a hell of a beating! Now Jack Haze is bringing Damon Diesel right along with him toward that table! But now Damon Diesel is looking to fight his way out of the grasp of Jack Haze! He’s throwing those elbows to the midsection of Jack! Now he’s pummeling Jack with repeated closed fists to the face and head of Jack Haze! Now Damon Diesel has Jack Haze at his mercy! Oh no! Damon Diesel has Jack Haze! And he’s so close to that table!

DIVING ELBOW DROP FROM THE APRON DRILLED RIGHT INTO THE HEART OF DAMON DIESEL AND BOTH MEN GO THROUGH THE TABLE! THE CROWD VOLUME REALLY PICKED UP AFTER THAT! THEY’RE APPLAUDING BOTH OF THESE MEN FOR THEIR EFFORTS SO FAR!
Deadprez: Jack Haze rolls off of Damon Diesel as both men lay side by side. You get the feeling we ain’t going to see much action going on inside the actual ring. Eve! At the very drop of a no dq match these competitors salivate over it just as much as these rabid fans! It’s almost barbaric to think about, but then you have to remember what this place used to be. The home to extreme! Jack Haze is now on all fours as Diesel is trying to remove some of those thorns from his arm there! He’s got a bad looking gash near his elbow! Jack Haze is up now and he’s moving a bit gingerly around to the other side of the ring! Jack goes back to reaching under the ring curtain and now he’s pulling out a steel chair!

Eve: Well this isn’t the kind of match that’s meant for the weak of heart! Damon Diesel and Jack Haze are both making their way back up! Jack now comes after Diesel as Diesel is trying to escape into the ring! AND A LOW BLOW! DIESEL JUST REVERSE KICKED JACK DOWN THERE WHERE IT REALLY IT HURTS! Damon Diesel now shoves Jack Haze into the ring as Jack is proving to be in a great deal of pain in the fetal position as Damon Diesel rolls in now! Damon Diesel stomping away at Jack Haze! Now Damon grabs Jack by the leg and now cinches in ankle lock! Jack Haze is yelling out in pain! But Jack quickly twists his way around maneuvering to his front side where he kicks Damon Diesel back! Damon Diesel bounces off those ropes and now a drop toe hold by Jack Haze! Jack hurries to put himself in the right position! He applies pressure on the Camel Clutch! Damon Diesel is trapped in the Camel clutch and Jack has Diesel in perfect position to get the submission victory, but will he!!??
Deadprez: Jack is trying to torque back on the head of Diesel now! Similar to how Diesel had been with that equipment wire earlier in the match out on the floor! Diesel uses all his strength to shift the momentum BUT LOOK AT THIS! JACK STILL HAS IT ON! HE’S ACTUALLY SWITCHED INTO THE FOURTH DIMENSION! JACK HAZE JUST TRANSITIONED THE CAMEL CLUTCH INTO THE CHICKENWING OVER THE SHOULDER SUBMISSION! DIESEL IS STRUGGLING FOR AIR! HE’S THROWING HIS ARMS AND ARMS AROUND TRYING TO REACH FOR SOMETHING!

DIESEL JUST TAPPED OUT TO THE CHICKENWING SUBMISSION OF JACK HAZE AND THE CROWD ROARS THEIR APPROVAL!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(‘Revolution’ by The Beatles begins to play again as Jack Haze rolls the limp body of Damon Diesel off and he begins to sit up. The referee is there to help up the bloody Jack Haze, who stumbles for a moment before he gets his hand raised being awarded the victory.)
Gina Romano: Here is your winner, BY SUBMISSION……..JAAAAACCCCCKKKKKKKK HAAAAZZZZZEEEE!!!!
Eve: What a come from behind victory for Jack Haze here, DP! Damon Diesel came out on fire from the get-go, taking right to Jack Haze! But Jack Haze showed us tonight why he is slowly becoming one of the best rising young talents not only here on Showdown, but in all of Elite Answer’s Wrestling WAIT—
Deadprez: HAZE JUST GOT NAILED FROM BEHIND WITH A CHAIR! THAT— THATS CODY MARSHALL!!! I THOUGHT HE WAS OUT INJURED AFTER THOSE RUN INS WITH JUSTICIAR ERIC AND THE ROUND TABLE ALL IN ONE NIGHT!
Eve: ME TOO BUT IT LOOKS LIKE HES BACK TO FORM AND NOW HES DESTROYING JACK HAZE WITH THIS CHAIR JUST REPEATEDLY WITH THESE SHOTS!! Man this kinda thing happens to Jack a lot…
(Cody walks to the side and demands a microphone.)
Cody Marshall: Oh hey there, “Enlightened one”! Did you think we were done? Did you think that was all there was after you cost me my chance at a title shot at Under Siege? I was stuck in some low rent match while you got to be in the goddamn main event… AND YOU ONLY GOT THERE BECAUSE OF ME?!? Did you think I was gonna forget about that? Hell no. It’ll be a snowy day in Dallas before that happens.
(Cody kneels down and lifts up Jack’s head to look him in the eyes.)
Cody Marshall: You and I… are far from done.
(Cody drops Haze’s head and lets him fall to the mat as medics make their way in. Cody climbs out of the ring and makes his way up, a snarling expression on his face.)
Deadprez: Cody Marshall is back… and he’s back for blood!

(Camera opens to a panning shot of the crowd as “Pray For Em” by Meek Mill hits to a huge loud reaction as Malcolm Jones steps through the curtain sporting the newly won EAW Championship around his neck, he has an extra pep in his step and his confidence is through the roof as he makes his way down the ramp.)
Gina Romano: Ladies and gentlemen please welcome the NEW EAW Champion…… MALCOLMMMMMMMMMM JONEEEEESSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!
Deadprez: I think the reaction from the fans speak for itself Eve. Even though Malcolm can be an asshole who rubs everyone he comes in contact with the wrong way, you can’t help but give him the respect deserved as this was an earned hard fought win. Malcolm Jones fulfilled his destiny last week at Grand Rampage on his birthday of all days, defeating three other men to capture the EAW Championship. I must say, he put on the performance of a lifetime and silenced a lot of critics and now he can call himself the EAW Champion of the world.. Amazing.
Eve: It truly is amazing, I won’t lie and say I wasn’t sure about his chances, the deck was stacked against him and the match could have went any other way with how star studded it was but he prevailed and he dethroned Ahren Fouriner, but not only did he dethrone Ahren, he pinned the man whose Pain for Pride 11 victory has plagued him for the past year. Now that is what you call full circle!
(Malcolm steps in the middle of the ring and is handed a mic before beginning to speak)
Crowd: YOU DESERVE IT! YOU DESERVE IT! YOU DESERVE IT!
Malcolm Jones: Thank you, thank you all, truly. I stand here before you all humbled. It is truly an honor to currently be in this position that I’m in and I gracefully accept the role as the champion of the peo—- NAH FUCK OUTTA HERE I TOLD YOU WHAT WAS GONNA HAPPEN SUCK MY DICK.
(Malcolm Jones starts laughing as boos begin to pick up.)
Malcolm Jones: You really thought I was bout to sit here and pander to the same dickeaters who treated me like shit during last years road to Pain for Pride? Malcolm forgives but he doesn’t forget. I don’t need you to tell me what I deserve and what I don’t deserve. God tells me what I deserve by waking me up in the morning and that’s how I know I’ve been given another opportunity to reach my goal.. and y’all ain’t God. I know, I know, I saved everybody from the piece of shit reign Ahren was dragging Showdown with, you no longer have to see your favorite product get diluted by a skinny fat vanilla midget with a manbun and his annoying hypocritical plastic doll who has no business on this brand. You’re welcome I guess? I guess we can both see eye to eye when I say… ANYTHING would have been better than that.
(The crowd cheers again.)
Malcolm Jones: …..But that’s also where the disconnect lies. Because I didn’t bust my ass to win the King of Elite tournament and then bust my ass to successfully cash that thing in just to become someone looked at as “well we don’t like him but hey it beats Ahren amirite?”. Nah I’m gonna blow anything that ever came before me out of the water. I’m not a replacement or an alternative, I’m the motherfucking champion of the world and I’m gonna carry that belt like it. I’m gonna be the champion that Showdown hasn’t had in a very long time, no shortcuts, no weak competition, and no running when shit gets tough. I done been through the mud and back, I’ve had my name smeared all over the place the same way Kassidy smears– nevermind. But the fact is, I wasn’t always looked at as somebody who would be standing here as champ one day. I was always doubted, considered not worthy enough because I wasn’t like a lot of other people who walked around backstage. Yet I shined through despite it. When I went against the fan favorite Chris Elite last year at Pain for Pride it was “how dare you?” and “who do you think you are?”. I was told to stay in my place, that I didn’t deserve to be in a Pain for Pride main event, that I didn’t put the work in to be considered a believable star. (Malcolm holds his title high in the air) Well motherfucker is it enough now?! Do I deserve it now?! …..Save your breath because I never gave a fuck about opinions and I ain’t gonna start now.
(Malcolm straps the title back around his waist.)
Malcolm Jones: All the criticism in the world has flown my way over the past year and yet here I am for the second year in a row punching in my ticket to the road to Pain for Pride…. but this time as world champion. Whether anybody likes it or not. I’ll never have the hearts of fans like a TLA, or a Chris Elite or a Cage, and you know why? Cuz I ain’t ever lost in front of the fans on th level that they consistently had for some time. They love an underdog story and I get it, because I’ve been one myself… the only difference is my underdog story didn’t happen in front of the cameras after I made it to the big leagues… my shit happened when I was growing up in the hood and that’s why when I finally made it here I made sure I wasn’t gonna repeat the same mistakes that I did in my past life. I guess when you grow up in an actual struggle the mentality and approach is different. So I’ve seen myself go from the underdog in life to the winner in EAW. I’m gonna keep winning too, this title as good as it is, it’s only the start. The start of a Hall of Fame career, the start of my dominance on Showdown, and the start of me staking my claim to be the greatest of all time. There ain’t a soul on this earth that will be able to stop me. Anybody is welcomed to come and try too. I know Showdown has gotten an influx of returns and whatnot lately, I dare a motherfucker to step up just so they can get stepped over. Anybody can get it.
(Malcolm takes a deep breath before speaking again.)
Malcolm Jones: ….And I mean anybody. Call me Can-Man because anybody CAN get it. AfriCANS, MexiCANS, AmeriCANS, DominiCANS.. I don’t give a fuck Keisha! With Wrath of the Dragon coming up, I’m gonna be defending my EAW Championship, now who that’s against I really don’t care but I’m honestly just ready to bring this shit up to another level. I’m ready to take on whoever wants this smoke so they can choke on it. Whether it be Ahren trying to invoke a rematch clause, Diamo– oh excuse me, “cAgE” trying to invoke a rematch clause, Chris Elite spamming his contract for the 50th time this year.. or anybody else I don’t give a fuck, the nigga serving food at catering can get it, the nigga scanning your tickets at the front door can get it, the nigga selling them ugly ass Drake King “not ok” shirts at the merch booth can get it, Drake King himself can get it, him and those bitch ass flunkies, Damon Diesel can get it, Jack Haze can get it so I could knock that bozo upside the head so hard he’d think he’s having an acid trip, Cody Marshall can get it with the strength and precision of every ancestor of mine who had to deal with a cac like him to the point where he’ll vote against Trump next election, The Revenant can get it to the point where I’ll send his ass packing back to O– (the show temporarily mutes the airing so that the home audience can’t hear what’s said but as it cuts back on you can hear a reaction from the fans). Whoever wants it, come and get it.. I dare any of you motherfuckers to even try me. Because now that I’ve been rightfully crowned, I traded in my old crown for a new one.. I’ll be damned if I let any of you clowns even come close to fucking with me. It’s quiet for you niggas. I was the diamond in the dirt till I was finally found, I was the underground king… and now I’m finally crowned…. and I ain’t going nowhere.
(Malcolm lifts his title up in the air as “Pray for Em” picks back up and he continues to celebrate and taunt in the ring.)
Eve: Big words tonight from the newly crowned champion! He’s putting everyone on notice and letting them know that he is the man to beat!
Deadprez: The man is cocky and I love it! He’s earned every right! He won the match, a triple crown champion in the span of a year, 2019 King of Elite! Hey, talk ya shit, Malcolm!

(The camera cuts to Gina Romano in the middle of the ring)
Gina Romano: Ladies and gentlemen the following contest is scheduled for…
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(“Odee” by A Boogie plays to cheers from the crowd as Chris Elite comes out with Big Mike. He stands on the stage for a moment but before he continues “Odee” is quickly interrupted by “Ambitionz az a Ridah” by Tupac and TLA comes out. Chris Elite’s face says it all.)
Eve: I don’t think Elite expected TLA to walk out so soon. He’s already unhappy that TLA is his partner, and now he’s getting his entrance stepped on!
Gina Romano: Introducing first, accompanied by Big Mike! The team of GAWDS GIVEN GREATNESS, CHRIS ELITE, AND LA PANTERA SEXUAL, T…L…A!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Deadprez: Rough start for this pairing as TLA has taken the time to abruptly interrupt Chris Elite’s entrance.
Eve: But yeah enough of that, even though this is a bad start this doesn’t mean that they won’t win, these teams are going to give it their all in this match no matter if or if they are not on the same page.
(Chris Elite and TLA enter on opposite sides of the ring and meet up in the corner. “The Resistance” by Skillet plays to a outstanding amount of boos. Jax Walker and Drake King come out and stare down the ring they look at each other then start walking down the ramp. Drake wears the Interwire Championship around his waist)
Gina Romano: And their opponents, representing the ROUND TABLE, THE TEAM OF DRAKE KING, AND JAX WALKER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Deadprez: The dominant team of the Round Table seem to be 2 people short, as Jax Walker and Drake King come out alone you must wonder if the other two members, The Revolution will play a part in this match.
Eve: That’s certain DP and that might factor into the winner of this match, there’s a lot to expect.
(Drake King and Jax Walker enter the ring, they eye TLA and Chris Elite as they take off their entrance gear and Drake hands his belt to the referee.)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Deadprez: Here we go Jax Walker and TLA starting it off for their teams. They lock up, but Jax easily pushes TLA into the ropes, clean break- JAX WITH A UPPERCUT TO THE CHIN OF TLA!

TLA climbing up to the top rope! BURNOUT! JAX WALKER WAS STILL DOWN FROM THE MEXICAN DESTROYER AND NOW THE BURNOUT CONNECTS! TLA HOLDING JAX’S SHOULDERS DOWN AS CHRIS ELITE NOW CLIMBS TO THE TOP! YOU GOTTA LOVE IT! THE 630 SENTON RIGHT INTO THE CHEST OF JAX WALKER! CHRIS AND TLA BOTH MAKIN THE PIN AS TERRY ROLLS THE GROGGY REFEREE BACK IN!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Eve: THEY DID IT!
Gina Romano: Here are your winners… the team of TLA and CHRIS ELITE!!!!!!
(“Odee” hits again as both men stand and celebrate before glancing back at each other with just a brief nod of respect.)
Deadprez: That was completely illegal! Terry Chambers laid hands on the Interwire Champion!
Eve: THE REVOLUTION BEAT UP THE REFEREE!!!
Eve: Not even. But either way, a hard fought victory by these two long time rivals… there’s a reason why they are both here to this day.
(Chris and TLA celebrate a bit more inside the ring. The camera cuts to show the Revolution belong Jax out of the ring and Drake King seething on the outside as he looks up at Terry who is watching from the stage with a smirk on his face.)
(Camera then cuts backstage to find Ahren Fournier on his cell phone outside of Hurricane Hawk’s office.)
Ahren Fournier: Look. I don’t care that you’re at home on some personal time. I couldn’t give a damn. Let’s not forget that we are only in this mess because of YOU! This is YOUR FAULT!
Ahren Fournier: I don’t care, Kassidy. You are the one who distracted me during the match. I didn’t even get pinned. And now Malcolm Jones is running around with my title. But I have a way to fix everything.
Ahren Fournier: Of course I still don’t give a damn about this sport. It’s a sad and pathetic sect of what way too many people are willing to call athletes. And the fact that these slobs actually grew up wanting to do this? It’s just disgusting to think of being that desperate for actual meaning in life.
Ahren Fournier: I care about the title because it provided me larger paychecks, less worked dates, and more privileges. Why would anyone who knows me question why I want it back? It’s not my fault I’m the best to ever “do a wrestle” or whatever the proper wording should be.
Ahren Fournier: NEED I REMIND YOU THAT THIS IS YOUR FAULT?!? YOU DO NOT GET TO QUESTION ME! YOU ARE LUCKY I DIDN’T KICK YOU TO THE CURB AFTER THAT STUNT AT GRAND RAMPAGE!
(Just then Cori Simmons storms out of Hurricane Hawk’s office angry and in tears. Hawk steps out and watches her go while shaking his head before seeing Ahren there.)
Hurricane Hawk: Dear Gawd. What did I do to deserve this?
Ahren Fournier: *to the phone* I’ll call you back.
(Ahren hangs up the phone and slips it into the pocket of his suit jacket.)
Ahren Fournier: Hawk… if you have a moment… I have a proposal for you…
