(EAW intro plays.)
(“Uncontainable” by Set It Off plays, cueing the new theme music of Saturday Night Showdown with a new introduction for Season 14. It plans to go to the EAW Performance Center in Newark, New Jersey with our socially distanced crowd.)
Eve: For the first time in Season 14, welcome to Saturday Night Showdown! I am your lead commentator, Eve! Next to me is the very insightful Deadprez and the other man to my right is the man with no filter, Gavin Kirkland! Pain for Pride is behind us. The Draft occurred last weekend and this season, we have plenty of new faces on this brand.
Deadprez: We say adios to our newly crowned PURE Champion, Xander Payne and our Universal Women’s Champion, Minerva, but hello to our current 24/7 contract holder, Jon Kelton and Interwire Champion, Consuela Rose Ava! The two of them will square off in our main event match tonight!
Gavin Kirkland: We’ll also be hearing from our newly crowned Answers World Champion and sexiest man alive, Jamie O’Hara later tonight as he lays down the law for the Showdown locker room!
Eve: We got a ton of new faces on this brand and faces that we haven’t seen in a while. Later tonight, we’ll be reintroducing the Showdown face to the main who carried this brand on his back in 2018, Cage as he takes on Shaker Jones later tonight. We will see two of EAW’s brightest talents in Justin Windgate and Sierra Bradford going one-on-one. Wow, such an amazing show, but we’re going to begin things with Ryan Wilson!
(“The Only Thing They Fear Is You” By Mike Gordon plays through the speakers as the socially distanced crowd in the Performance Center boos at the very presence of Ryan Wilson, who is still wearing the bruises and scars from his war against Ahren Fournier at Pain for Pride, but he is still standing and most importantly, he is still a part of Showdown. Ryan has a smug look on his face as he makes his way down the ramp.)
Gina Romano: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN…PLEASE WELCOME AT THIS TIME…YOUR RECENTLY PROMOTED GENERAL MANAGER OF SATURDAY NIGHT SHOWDOWN…RYAN WILSON!!!!!!!
Eve: Recently promoted? :skip:
Deadprez: This man can’t get a championship, but he got the second best thing and it’s a promotion. Let me remind everyone that Ryan Wilson was an INTERIM General Manager, but it wasn’t until last Pain for Pride, where we heard that Ryan had gotten a promotion to become the permanent General Manager on Showdown. Like him or hate him, but you must admire his effort on making Showdown the best show in EAW!
Gavin Kirkland: Ever since he got the promotion, he hasn’t been afraid to push his weight around, trying to turn matches into his favor, giving himself championship matches and doing what he can to assert his authority. You can like or hate him, but Ryan Wilson is here to stay as General Manager.
Eve: I’m curious to see his thoughts on his new roster. I’m aware that he’s more than thrilled by some of his trades, but he could have done with some of the other’s on Showdown. :yikes:
(Ryan Wilson is already seen inside the ring with a microphone in his hand. His entrance music dies down as Ryan smiles around the small crowd of the EAW Universe.)
Ryan Wilson: WELCOME TO SHOWDOWN!!!!!
(The crowd gives him a mixed reception. Some are thrilled over being part of the Showdown crowd. Others just hate Ryan Wilson’s guts.)
Ryan Wilson: I can hear the excitement in your voices, that’s the beauty of Showdown. I commend all of you being as vocal as possible. I hope that never changes, but it seems like our roster going into Season 14 has changed and it’s for the better. First off, good riddance to that Hall of Shame member, Ahren Fournier and I hope that he falls on his face on Voltage! Second of all, I am more than thrilled to have retained some of my talents from last season, we got a bright talent in Bronson Daniels as he managed to defeat three other men and become New Breed Championship. We have our wonderful Answers World Champion, Jamie O’Hara, who will be giving his speech later on this show. We also gained some exceptional talent, who I will be looking forward to talking to about making Showdown to MY vision. I’m excited to work with men and women like Cage, Raven Roberts and Dr. Bethany Blue. I’m looking to see men and women like Justin Windgate, Sierra Bradford, Maxwell and Jon Kelton grow and evolve on this brand. It’s what happened to quite a few talents last season and it’s the beauty of being part of Showdown. There’s also a part of me that hopes to see those like Jack Ripley and Cage get their well-deserved World Championship reigns, but they will get what they put in.
Ryan Wilson: As I said last season when I took over Showdown, I have a clear vision for the brand. Not many people watch Showdown nor understand what my vision for the brand is, so let me just inform everyone once again. My vision for Showdown is…HARDCORE. Now, I get it, there’s not a many men and women cough cough Harlow Reichert cough cough who are found of the hardcore life style, but this vision isn’t about hardcore matches and hitting each other with creative weapons. Yes, those matches are always glorious to see, but to me, being hardcore is constantly pushing yourself to the limit. It’s to always constantly push yourself. It doesn’t matter how much pain you are in, there is something about you that is always telling you not to stop. These are always the same people who always keep at it until they no longer can. They are normally the ones who are so stubborn, that they will never take no for an answer. There’s a ton of Elitists on the roster, who can fit the bill. I’ve seen their respective journeys last season and it’s just some of the reasons that made me want to have them on my brand. I don’t consider my brand to be holding anyone’s hands and protecting them from their own setbacks and failures. Showdown is going to be a true test to how great of a wrestler you are. We produce the best wrestling content in the world and the newcomers from Dynasty and Voltage are going to realize that from the very first match they compete in.
Ryan Wilson: I’m not here with my own vendettas. I don’t just push the people I want to push. I push the people who work the hardest. I push the people who are going to give it their all. I don’t do halfass efforts. That’s not going to be the type of work ethic that is going to make me want to give you these huge opportunities. If you put in everything that you have to offer in the ring, you will be rewarded greatly. If there are people that can’t handle that, then, they can sit in the back until Season 15 because I don’t feed into entitlement or egos. If you think that bitching and complaining is going to work with me, then, you are going to be in for a rude awakening. If there is anyone who has an issue with what I have to say, speak your mind, let’s have a civil conversation. We can converse in the ring, in the back or in my office, but I am someone who tends to be all ears.
(“2nd Sucks (instrumental)” by A Day to Remember unexpectedly blasts through the speakers as the crowd has a mixed ovation as the unsigned Elitist, Ronan Malosi comes out from the back. He wears a black “#SignRonanMalosi t-shirt that you can find on EAWShop.com. Ronan has a giant smirk on his face as he makes his trip down the ramp.)
Deadprez: Ronan Malosi? What in the world is he doing here?
Gavin Kirkland: What does it look like he’s doing, Deadprez? Ronan is blessing us with his presence. Do you think that he is going to do any “Hot Takes” tonight? :oh:
Eve: God, I hope not. His “Hot Takes” are complete garbage.
Gavin Kirkland: You don’t mean that, Eve.
Eve: I do, Gavin.
(Ronan Malosi is already in the middle of the ring as he stretches his arms out, embracing the hatred of the crowd. He gets a microphone from Gina Romano as he looks at Ryan Wilson, who is more than giving him the floor to speak. The two of them had small interactions on social media, but this is one of the first times that they have seen each other face-to-face. Ronan’s entrance music dies down before he begins.)
Ronan Malosi: For those that didn’t watch Dynasty last season or Pain for Pride, let me introduce myself. I am Ronan Malosi, “The Hot Takes King.” I am the reason why people gave a shit about the Dynasty brand last season. Do you think that was because of Drake King and The Visual Prophet? :mjlol: No, it was because of me and my “Hot Takes” segments, which are some of the highest rated segments of the entire season. “Crack Stories” with Bronson Daniels wishes that it had the same amount of success as I did. “Getting Candid” with Candice Blair wishes that it had the same traction as I did on Dynasty. Due to the success of the “Hot Takes” segment, it leaves me baffled on why the fuck no one would want me on their show? I should be the number one pick in the draft. I should be the Elitist that people are FIGHTING to have on their brand. I was so confident that I was going to get traded onto a brand. I waited the entire Draft Show for my name to show up on the screen. When I saw DRAKE KING as the first Draft pick, I knew that it had to be some sort of mistake. Perhaps, they didn’t have the right pictures to make the Draft pick, which is understandable because none of my previous pictures would have done me justice. You see, Drake King was only the first pick via default because my pictures couldn’t make it on time, but then, I thought, maybe, I could have been drafted over social media and I didn’t. They chose THE WOOGIEMAN???
(The crowd begins to cheer for The Woogieman. Despite not being here tonight, he is a strong presence. Ronan Malosi shakes his head.)
Ronan Malosi: OVER ME?!?!? Am I not as worthy as The Woogieman, Ryan?
Ryan Wilson: I had no say on the drafts on social media, Ronan. If I did, there’s no doubt that Shaker Jones wouldn’t have been on my brand.
Ronan Malosi: SHAKER JONES was another name that was traded over me. SHAKER JONES. This guy can’t bother to put in a decent effort on a basic episode of Showdown. Shaker Jones isn’t the star that I am, Ryan. Shaker Jones may be aligned with Chris Elite, but I never needed anyone to help me become the star I am. No, I got over it on my own, which is something that the basic Elitists know how to do these days. I am a star and you people can’t ignore that any longer. It’s probably another one of the million reasons why people didn’t want me on their brands. They are aware that the champions wouldn’t be safe when they’re in the ring with me. I dare you to put me up against Jamie O’Hara and I’ll body him on the mic and inside the ring.
Ryan Wilson: Ronan, I am not going to do that whatsoever.
Ronan Malosi: Oh, you’re afraid. You wanna protect your Answers World Champion? Understandable. But Ryan, I am here to give you an opportunity and that’s to have ME on your brand! Do you not realize that by having Ronan Malosi on your brand, your ratings go higher than it did with Jake Smith hijacking ⅔s of the show? Do you not realize that you will secure your job for Season 15, if you allow a man of my star power to be on your brand? Showdown is already the A-show, but it can be so much better with me on the roster. Jamie O’Hara doesn’t compare to my star power. Bronson Daniels doesn’t compare to the potential rise that I can have in this company. Jake Smith doesn’t get the same amount of gorgeous women to hate him as much as I do. It doesn’t matter what I do, but I am the most talked about star that this company has and you would be an idiot to turn me down.
Ryan Wilson: Is that so? Well, I’m not really seeing if you’re going to be a wonderful addition to MY vision of Showdown, but we’ll see with your match next week. If you’re so keen on competing. I will put you in the match and if you put on a good showing, I may consider giving you a Showdown contract. If not, then I don’t ever want to see you on my show again. Dress up to compete next week, Ronan. I don’t want to be disappointed.
(Ryan Wilson drops the microphone as “The Only Thing They Fear Is You” plays through the speakers again as Ronan Malosi nods at Ryan, who exits the ring.)
Eve: It seems like Ryan Wilson is going to throw a bone at Ronan Malosi and see what he can offer to Showdown.
Gavin Kirkland: It’s going to be interesting if Ronan Malosi will be able to get a Showdown contract. But, we’ll be right back with more Showdown! Stay tuned!
Gina Romano: Ladies and Gentlemen the following contest is scheduled for ONE FALL!!!
Crowd: ONE FALL!!
( “Young and Bitter” by Hot Tag Media plays over the PA system of the Performance Center as Lucas Johnson is making his way to the ring. He wears his Beats by DRE headphones that was given to him by his manager Albert Hitchman as he blasts music with an intense look on his face canceling the noise out from the fans that could give two shits less about him in the first place. When Lucas reaches the ring apron his manager Hitchman gives him one last prep talk as he gives the middle finger to his doubters as Hitchman takes off the headphones, Johnson heads into the ring for combat and has a new mindset of taking no prisoners and doing whatever it takes to win. )
Gina Romano: Introducing first! Accompanied to the ring by his manager Albert Hitchman! Weighing in at 197 pounds. He is the Blueprint; LUCAAAAS JOOOOOHN-SOOOOOOON!!!
Gavin Kirkland: Look at the man! All zeroed in on himself listening to music provided by them Beats By Dre’s.
Deadprez: Are you sponsored by them too?
Gavin Kirkland: I wish I was! Johnson looks ready to go though, that’s good.
Gina Romano: AAAAAAND HIS OPPONENT!
( “Man on Fire” by Oh The Larceny plays over the PA system now as the opening “whoa-oh-oh”s of the song play, the runner lights around the arena flash red and yellow in sync with the music. As the lyrics begin, the stage lights glow red and Raylan Brees makes his way out on the ramp. He is wearing his full-length wrestling tights and a red and black “Alpha Assassin T-shirt”, and pointing “trigger fingers” (ala The Bullet Club) at the ring/his opponent. Raylan wears a red athletic glove on his right hand and a black athletic glove on his left hand. When he puts his hands together in a diamond shape, the gloves form his double-A (Alpha Assassin) logo. Raylan walks to the ring quickly, with purpose, but will point and acknowledge the more vocal fans as he moves. Raylan Brees rolls underneath the ropes and immediately upon entering the ring, he begins climbing the turnbuckles. He makes sure to hit all four corners, working in unison with the musical cues. In sync with the lyrics “I’m a man on fire!”, Raylan raises his red-gloved right fist in the air at the top of each turnbuckle. )
Gina Romano: From Lexington, Kentucky! Weighing in at 230 pounds; He is The Alpha Assassin… RAYLAAAAAN BREEEEEEEEES!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: I always wondered if he had any relations with the Saints Quarterback.
Deadprez: Does it matter? He doesn’t look like he will allow Johnson to laissez les bon temps roulez tonight! He looks ready to go Big but not Easy!
Gavin Kirkland: What?
Deadprez: You mean Who Dat?
Official: Ring The Bell!!
( Ding Ding Ding!! )
Eve: Here we GO Folks! Brees versus Johnson is on! Both men are looking at one another with Raylan staring down at Hitchman with a look of YouMotherfuckerYouBetterNotTryAnythingStupidOrElse deathstare on his face which is ignored by Lucas’ Manager and Mentor!
Lucas Johnson (off-mic): Hey! Focus up here boy!
Raylan Brees (off-mic): The fuck you just called m- SMACK!!
Gavin Kirkland: BITCH SLAP! HAHA!!
Eve: JOHNSON JUST SLAPPED SOME SENSE INTO BREES WHO NOW LOOKS AT HIM WITH A GLARE THAT COULD ATOMIZE A MAN ON THE SPOT! Johnson on his end bears an arrogant smile on his face as then the two lock up in a clinch soon after controlled by Raylan who looks about ready to pop Lucas’ head clear off like a corkscrew! Moving forward with Lucas locked in he goes down with a Bulldog while keeping Johnson in a headlock Raylan on the early going has the advantage on the ground as he throws in a few punches across the face of his opponent under the watchful gaze of the official.
He goes on a mounted position MMA style and begins to throw down some elbows until he is rolled over by Lucas who goes on the offense with a series of closed fist punches followed by a headbutt that seems to put Raylan in a dazed state for a short second BUT he manages to reverse the move going back on a top guard position on Johnson WHO SUDDENLY GOES FOR THE KIMURA LOCK!! THE KIMURA LOCK IS APPLIED AND BREES IS IN TROUBLE! HE IS LOOKING TO END THIS EARLY!! However Raylan manages to free himself quickly as Lucas did not bring Brees’ arm to his chest fast enough for him to move it out of the way and free from the hold. Both men go back to a vertical base and into a clinch this time controlled by Johnson who Irish Whips Raylan to the ropes! RUNNING CLOTHESLINE! Raylan goes down but quickly gets back up! Another clothesline! And a third one Brees keeps getting up but suddenly GERMAN SUPLEX BY JOHNSON!! He Used Brees’ Momentum Against Him! Down goes the Kentucky native and Johnson attempts a quick cover!
Gavin Kirkland: Raylan kicks out!
Deadprez: Not even close!
Eve: Both men are going back to their feet, Raylan looks angry and Lucas looks smug both goes to meet each other but Raylan rakes Johson’s eyes which doesn’t please the official giving the big man a warning he doesn’t seem to have heard! He throws in a series of punches to Johnson some to he face some to the ribs as Lucas backs up into a corner! Raylan is going at it throwing in chops against the chest of Lucas while the crowd responds to it with…
Eve: Each time he strikes! Quickly Johnson’s chest is growing red and Raylan changes his strategy going from palms to fists striking hard he then begins to use his feet stomping the former New Breed Champion against the turnbuckle before getting grabbing him and WOAH!! EXPLODER SUPLEX FROM THE CORNER!! RYLAN WITH THE COVER!!
Referee: One! TWO!!
Gavin Kirkland: Lucas kicks out!! That Suplex came out of nowhere!
Deadprez: Surely it was in response to that German earlier! It had an impact for sure and now Raylan Brees has the upper hand!
Referee: One! TWO!!
Eve: Raylan with a rolling thunder followed with a fireman’s carry suplex onto a knee that has Lucas writhe in pain on the floor!! The momentum is truly on the side of The Alpha Assassin now! He helps Lucas up, throwing some punches before whipping him back into a corner. He backs up to the opposite one and charges in! He goes for the Stinger’s Splash BUT JOHNSON CAUGHT HIM! BLAM HE SLAMS HIM DOWN WITH A BELLY TO BELLY SUPLEX!! WHAT A COUNTER BY THE WRESTLING MACHINE!! He attempts a cover!!
Referee: One! TWO!!
Gavin Kirkland: Kick out by Raylan!!
Deadprez: Look at Johnson he quickly is moving for the kill again!!
Eve: Lucas quickly moved to set himself and Rylan in the Crippler Crossface!! He got it tightly locked in! Will Brees tap? Will he submit on his first showing on Showdown?? He tries to reach for the ropes! His strength allows him to get ever so closer with his hand raised up. It’s shaking he looks like he wants to tap out but he GRABS THE BOTTOM ROPE!! The official orders Lucas to let go of his opponent and does so reluctantly after a count of four to give a bit more pain to his opponent! Johnson picks up Brees, slaps his face a bit spewing some insults before throwing him to the ropes trying for a clothesline but Brees ducks under it! SUPERKICK BY RAYLAN FOLLOWED BY ONE GERMAN SUPLEX! THEN A SECOND AS HE PROPS LUCAS FOR IT! AND THEN A THIRD ONE! HE GOES FOR THE COVER WITH A BRIDGE SUPLEX PIN!
Referee: One! TWO!!
Gavin Kirkland: The sellout kicks out!
Deadprez: It will take more to take The Wrestling Machine out! Brees shrugs getting annoyed to not have been able to put Lucas away and get his first season win! He grabs Johnson by the shoulders lifting him up trying to go for a fireman’s carry again but Lucas wiggles off and lands on his feet! He has Brees’ head under the arm! A DDT BY LUCAS!!! Advantage Lucas once again as Brees is laid out! Johnson goes up top to a nearby corner and Shooting star Press from Lucas! It Connects! He hooks the legs!
Referee: One! TWO!!
Gavin Kirkland: BREES KICKS OUTTTTT!!!
Eve: Johnson is beginning to get frustrated it shows look at the expression on his face! He picks up Brees who blocks him! Kick to the mid section and WOAH! THE DOUBLE TAP IS APPLIED SUCCESSFULLY BY RAYLAN BREES! Two Successful Crossroads have laid out Lucas Johnson flat on his back! Brees feels the end is nigh he can go for the kill and bag his first win of the season! He picks up Johnson who is limp, hoists him on his shoulder for a fireman’s carry that he drills down INTO THE SICARIO CUTTER!!! The Diamond Cutter connects! Johnson is Down! Raylan goes for the pin!!
Referee: One! TWO!!
Gavin Kirkland: What the FUCK??
Eve: HITCHMAN GOT LUCAS’ FOOT ON THE BOTTOM ROPE!! HE JUST SAVED HIS CLIENT AND THE OFFICIAL DIDN’T SEE A THING AS HE CALLS IT A TWO COUNT! Brees is besides himself while Hitchman is laughing his old ass off! Raylan is angry as he curses at Albert but then goes to cuss a storm at the official for being a blind ba- CLAYMORE TO THE BACK OF RAYLAN!!! The official dodged but Brees got it all and he dropped down to the floor!! Lucas gets over him and hooks the leg!
Official: ONE! TWO!! THREE!!!
( Ding! Ding!! Ding!!! )
Gina Romano: The Winner Of This Bout… The Blueprint LUCAAAAS JOOOHN-SOOOOOOON!!!
Gavin Kirkland: The hell was that?? From the back? Dick move Lucas!!
Deadprez: With an assist from his manager this match is his but had it ended up clean surely The Alpha Assassin would’ve won!
(The scene fades into General Manager Ryan Wilson backstage. Like always, he seems to be on the phone with an important call. He is pacing slowly back-and-forth as he is on his call.)
Ryan Wilson (on the phone): I’m more than excited about the Midsummer Massacre this year. I do expect to have a fantastic card. I do plan to get some matches on the card within the next few weeks, but I’m expecting an action packed card. There’s plenty of members on Showdown, who are hungry to make some sort of impact and that puts a smile to my face.
(A door is heard opening, which gets the attention of the General Manager. Xavier Williams walks into the camera shot and it seems like he’s more than ready to compete in his match against Maxwell in a matter of moments. Ryan Wilson finally notices Xavier’s presence.)
Ryan Wilson (on the phone): I’ll make sure to call you back.
(Ryan Wilson hangs up the phone, providing Xavier Williams with his undivided attention.)
Xavier Williams: You wanted to see me?
Ryan Wilson: Yes. First off, congratulations on your victory at Pain for Pride. You and Harlow totally killed it out there and showed the world what a flawless pure wrestling match is all about.
Xavier Williams: Thank you. Harlow was tremendous at Pain for Pride. I know that she wanted nothing more than to end her season on a good note. After Under Siege, it seemed like things were going a bit downhill. Not being booked as frequent as she was as champion really bummed her out. It drove her crazy not knowing when it was going to be the next time that she was going to be booked and I’ve been on the same boat as her. She’s a hungry competitor and despite the loss, I think she proved to people how wonderful of a wrestler she is.
Ryan Wilson: I’ve heard the word backstage that Harlow’s loss at Pain for Pride stung her.
Xavier Williams: Can you blame her? She wanted nothing more than for the story of “the student defeating her teacher” to become a reality. For Harlow, it was an almost flawless match. She managed to deal with everything that I was able to throw at her. She really adapted to how the match was and I was proud of her performance at Pain for Pride. Yes, she fell short, but she was amazing out there. This isn’t a talent that you should be keeping on the sidelines, Ryan. She’s someone that you should be propelling to the top of the brand. I know what Harlow is capable of and I know that this loss is going to motivate her into making sure that she doesn’t face a tragic loss like this again.
Ryan Wilson: Harlow is one of the reasons that I invited you to my office to talk about. We’ve heard zero from her since Pain for Pride. The last post on social media was with her believing that she wasn’t the best pure wrestler in the world and that she was “beach bound.” I understand that she has an elbow injury to recover from, but do you think that it’s smart of her to be on a beach in the middle of a pandemic?
(Xavier Williams shrugs his shoulders.)
Xavier Williams: Your guess is as good as mine. I’ve been trying to get a hold of Harlow since Pain for Pride, but I keep getting her voicemail. I like to believe that she just wants to distance herself from everyone and it’s best to give her that space. She’s a big girl and whenever she’s ready, she’ll be back. I know that.
Ryan Wilson: It seems like she believed that no brand would want to invest in her due to her injury, but Harlow has proven time after time again that she’s worth the risk. Her reign as PURE Champion. Her hunger to prove that she’s this flawless athlete is one of the reasons that I wanted her on Showdown again. I want to see her on Showdown soon, so if you get any word from her, let me know as soon as possible.
Xavier Williams: Will do.
Ryan Wilson: Thank you. Your match is up next. It’s best that you head towards the ring. You’re free to go.
(Xavier Williams nods his head as he leaves Ryan Wilson’s office. The scene fades to black.)
(“Slide” by Calvin Harris ft. Frank Ocean, Migos hits, as Maxwell walks out on to the stage as he peers over the small crowd as he pumps himself up flashing his newly bought ice around his neck and on his fingers as he makes his way down the ramp. Maxwell then walks up the steps as he moves through the ropes as stops in the middle of the ring and poses with arms out wide as there is a mix reaction of boos and chants of “loser”.)
Eve: Maxwell was drafted from Voltage and he looks ready to make a name for himself here on Showdown and to continue the role he generated at the end of SZN13.
Gavin Kirkland: The way I see it you either have it or you don’t, and to be honest Maxwell has a lot to learn and to square off here tonight with a veteran like Xavier. He’ll learn a lot that can carry him far here in EAW.
Gina Romano: The following contest is set for one fall! Introducing first, from Las Vegas, Nevada!!! Weighing in at 250lbs!! PRINCE WEALTHY!!!! MMAXXXXWEELLLLLLL!!!!!!
(“Slide” fades out as “Break Free” by The New Low hits as Xavier Williams makes his way out onto the stage stopping at the top as he pumps himself up as the crowd erupts in cheers. )
Gina Romano: And his opponent!! He is from Pensacola, Florida!! Weighing in at 190lbs!! THE YOUNG WOOOOLFFF!! XXXXAVIIERRRR WILLLLLLLLIAMMSSSSSSS!!!
(Xavier makes his way down the ramp as he stops at the bottom of the ramp as he stares at Maxwell still holding that same pose. Xavier shakes his head as he hops to the apron with one knee and pulls himself up using the ropes. Xavier slides through the ropes as Maxwell breaks the pose and gives Xavier a little pump fake that kind of puts Xavier at a stand still mid ropes. Xavier then finishes hopping through the ropes as “Break Free” fades out.)
Deadprez: There’s no doubt that Xavier Williams wants to start this season off with a bang. He finally put a nail in the coffin picking up the win against Harlow Reichert at Pain for Pride, they put on a hell of a show and I don’t expect anything less tonight from Xavier.
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Eve: And this match is on it’s way! Xavier and Maxwell circle each other as they both go in for a caller-elbow lock up, both men fighting for the upper hand but it looks like Maxwell has the upper hand as he tries to push Xavier back against the ropes. Xavier suddenly starts pushing back, but Maxwell counters and begins pushing Xavier to the other side of the ring and now has Xavier pinned against the ropes as the ref steps in to break the hold.
Deadprez: Maxwell raises his hands showing he released the hold but quickly with a forearm to the side Xavier’s head. Maxwell attempts another but is blocked, Xavier goes for a kick to the mid section but Maxwell catches Xavier’s foot. Xavier steps over Maxwell’s leg and continues with a peel kick to the top of Maxwell’s head sending him stumbling back.
Gavin Kirkland: See the way Xavier pulled that move out, that is the technician of a veteran right there. Xavier quickly runs in for a clothesline but Maxwell see’s Xavier coming and the back body drops Xavier over the top rope but Maxwell didn’t see that he landed on the apron. Maxwell turns around and is met with a rope assisted Enziguri stumbling him back once again. Xavier quickly hops to the top rope and springs from the top rope…Ashes of the Phoenix connects. Xavier quickly goes for the pin hooking one leg.
Eve: Maxwell kicked out and rolled from the ring as Xavier begged him to come back in the ring. Maxwell makes an attempt to climb the apron but Xavier pumps fake him causing Maxwell to give up and retreating trying to shake the cobwebs. Xavier exits the ring from the other side and runs around the ring and Maxwell slides back in and so does Xavier but Maxwell is the first to his feet and Xavier is met with a few foot stomps before Maxwell circles the mat with his arms out and a smug look on his face.
Gavin Kirkland: What is wrong with this guy and not covering. If you’re that good why not just put this match away. Maxwell drags Xavier to his feet and sets him up for a pump-handle…Maxwell pulls him on to his shoulders looks like he might be going for the Samoan drop but Xavier delivers 3 hard elbows before sliding off and pushing Maxwell forward. Maxwell and Xavier both come off opposite ropes…Maxwell going for a lariat but no Xavier counters it…SPANISH FLY. Perfectly executed. Xavier goes for the pin as the small crowd cheers “THIS IS AWESOME”.
Deadprez: Xavier with that desperate counter may have just turned this match back into his favor, but I think he’ll need a little more than that to get that three count. Xavier took longer then needed to catch his breath. A man like Xavier who’s been to the top of EAW and his plans for this season is to be at the top once again. Xavier drags Maxwell to his knees but Maxwell lays in with a punch to the stomach but Xavier delivers a forearm back in return, Xavier attempts a superkick but Maxwell quickly avoids the kick and rolls under the ropes and out to the ground. Xavier goes but is stopped by the ref as he starts a count.
Eve: Xavier is down waiting and takes it in to his own hands as he looks back and then at Maxwell then turns and runs the ropes and Cartwheels Over the Top Rope with Suicide Moonsault…XAVIER JUST FLEW OVER THE TOP ROPE AND SMASHING ON TOP OF MAWELL….Xavier just hit that Sasuke Special. Xavier knows what it takes to get the job done, let’s just hope that move didn’t jeopardize him from furthering this match. Xavier slowly gets to his feet as he drags Maxwell to his feet. The crowd is livid right now. Xavier slides Maxwell on to the apron as he hops to the apron Maxwell rolls the rest of the way into the ring as Xavier makes his way up the corner to the top.
Gavin Kirkland: Xavier is perched on the top turnbuckle looks like he could be going for one of his variations of the 450 splash. Wait Maxwell see’s Xavier and quickly rolls to his knees and slams his body into the top rope causing Xavier to slip and fall to a seated position on top of the turnbuckle. Maxwell with a hard blow to the head of Xavier. Maxwell attempted to climb the turnbuckle as well.
Deadprez: This is definitely not going to end well. Xavier now with a hard elbow to the top of the dome of Maxwell, shaking him up a bit, as he continues up to the 2nd rope. Maxwell with a European uppercut almost sending Xavier backwards off the top turnbuckle as Maxwell is now standing on top of the corner balancing. Maxwell pulls Xavier up…He’s not going for The Power of Money is he. If he does this could be one of the most upsetting victories of the night and will get the attention of the locker room that Maxwell on Showdown will outshine his little run on Voltage last season.
Eve: Maxwell attempts to lift Xavier but it’s looking a bit difficult to get his footing…Xavier with a few punches to the side of Maxwell causing Maxwell to somewhat give up on lifting and focus’ more on defending the punches as he begins to lose his balance finally Xavier ceases the opportunity and kicks out one of Maxwell’s legs causing him to fall to the turnbuckle catching himself hanging by both hands Xavier quickly capitalizes and goes straight for the double stomp Tree of Woe smashing all through Maxwell’s chest sending him down to the mat as Xavier rolls out across the mat. Xavier charges in for a running Moonsault but no Maxwell manages to adjust himself and catches Xavier in a Heel Hook.
Gavin Kirkland: Xavier almost had that bottom rope but Maxwell’s instincts kicked in and was able to drag himself and Xavier away from that bottom rope. Xavier goes for another reach but Maxwell has turned it right into an ankle lock and drags Xavier to the middle of the ring…Xavier lifts up through the pain and rolls under grabbing Maxwell’s ankles and turning into a pinning combo.
Deadprez: NO!! Kick out by Maxwell sends the crowd into a sigh as Maxwell leaps to his feet before Xavier makes it to his. Maxwell rushes Xavier with a knee to the gut, Maxwell then irish whips Xavier across the ring as he runs the opposite ropes and comes in for a Forearm smash but Xavier ducks and comes off the ropes for a cross body but Maxwell catches Xavier in mid air and follows through with a Tilt-A-Whirl Powerslam smashing Xavier down to the mat, Maxwell going for a pin.
Eve: Kick out by Xavier! Not hooking that leg during the pin costed him the three count. Maxwell is out here proving he’s worthy but making some rookie mistakes. He could have easily picked up the victory over a Hall of Famer here tonight. You can see the frustration in Maxwell’s face that he is determined to finish this match. Maxwell drags Xavier to his feet and whips him across the ring and runs the ropes and goes for a forearm smash and connects across the skull of Xavier sending him to his back.
Gavin Kirkland: Maxwell quickly rolls Xavier over on to his stomach, locking one arm in his legs and applying the crossface. He has this crossface lock deep in the middle of the ring. Xavier makes little effort of making it to the ropes but not tapping. Xavier finally makes some movement reaching out for the ropes again as he slides a few inches closer but Maxwell wrenches back harder causing Xavier to stop reaching and focus more on breaking the hold. Maxwell finally let’s go of the crossface but still has one arm trapped as he starts slapping the back of Xavier’s head. Maxwell finally relieves the hold as he gets up and poses for the small crowd as they begin to boo. Xavier is still laying on the mat as Maxwell climbs to the second rope holding his hands high as if he already won the match.
Deadprez: It’s nice to be able to win over this small crowd but showboating when you need to be capitalizing on the pin is not the way to win this match. Maxwell hops down and meets Xavier who is up to one knee delivers a punch to the mid section stopping Maxwell in his tracks. Maxwell smashes an elbow to the top of Xavier’s head as Xavier strikes another as he moves to his feet. Maxwell with a forearm of his own…Now Xavier with a desperation kick to the stomach that backs Maxwell into the corner. Xavier comes in for a clothesline but no Maxwell catches Xavier and slams him to the mat with a desperate Urnage. Maxwell goes for the cover but the ref doesn’t see Maxwell has bridge out on to the rope. The small crowd starts booing as Maxwell goes for the cover.
Maxwell: What the…You only have one job, do it!
Ref: No pin, your feet were on the bottom rope Maxwell.
Eve: Maxwell digging deep to pull out a first victory starting off the fresh season cheating isn’t the way to go. Maxwell then drags Xavier to his feet but Xavier with a punch and another pressing Maxwell back, and fires another spinning back kick connects to the jaw of Maxwell knocking him back and down to the mat in the corner. Xavier seizing the opportunity and goes straight for the run SHOTGUN DROPKICK hits his mark, Xavier drags Maxwell to the center of the mat and goes for the pin hooking one leg.
Gavin Kirkland: Xavier needs just a little more to put Maxwell out. Xavier quickly bringing Maxwell to his feet, looks like he may be going for a suplex. If he manages to get him up Maxwell might as well kiss this fight good night. Xavier attempts to pull him up but no Maxwell hooks a leg, Xavier attempts to try again but no Maxwell punches Xavier in the side. Maxwell out muscles Xavier and pulls him up quickly dropping out into a Sit out Xplex…Maxwell just hit the Ferrari Overdrive, this could be over right here.
Deadprez: Maxwell isn’t going for the pin, it looks like he is going for the top rope. Taking a high flight risk has its advantages, I don’t think this will end well for Maxwell. If all goes well, this match will be in the books. Maxwell climbs the turnbuckle, stands up and finds his footing and goes for it, doesn’t even look, does it all blindly and connects. Maxwell just Landed the Private Jet blindly. Maxwell goes for the roll up.
Deadprez: Yes! Xavier gets his shoulders up just in time. Maxwell looks very pissed as he harasses the ref about the slow count. The ref assuring that his count was on point depicting his count in his hand. Maxwell has had a good run in this match but worries about the ref’s count and not focusing on finishing Xavier off and pulling out the victory.
Eve: Maxwell pulls Xavier up to his knees, it looks like Maxwell might be going for the Dragon Sleeper. Maxwell attempts to apply the hold as Xavier tries to fight it, finally Xavier frees himself as runs the ropes Maxwell charges in and but Xavier ducks both men off the ropes again as Xavier goes for a leap frog but Maxwell catches Xavier in mid air and smashes him down across his knee and holding him in a pendulum backbreaker pressing down with both hands making sure to dig it in deeper and deeper finally pushing him off to the mat. Maxwell picks Xavier up with a pump handle as he pulls him up Xavier fights and follows the motion and is able to slip over the top but locks his legs. Xavier just planted Maxwell with a spike frankenstiener.
Gavin Kirkland: This could be it, the turning point for Xavier. Xavier quickly to his feet as Maxwell makes it to his, Xavier with a hook kick as he runs the ropes big boot uncocking Maxwell to the corner Xavier runs the ropes to come in for a back elbow but Maxwell slips out of the way.
Eve: Looks like Maxwell is trying to put him up on the turnbuckle. Xavier is in the seated position as Maxwell climbs up to the second rope before Xavier starts in some vicious punches and finally pushes Maxwell off the ropes onto his back. Xavier standing up on the perch as Maxwell makes it to his feet as he turns around Xavier fires down with a mistletoe dropkick sending Maxwell rolling across the ring, Xavier quickly runs the ropes as Maxwell gets up in a daze as Xavier springboards off the second rope connecting with the Ashes of the Phoenix Xavier hooks a leg with one leg and the other with one arm as the ref starts the count.
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
(“Break Free” by The New Low hits as Xavier rolls off Maxwell as the ref holds Xavier’s hand up as he is still crouched over on the mat. Maxwell rolls out of the ring shook up by the loss as he walks up the ramp giving evil snares back to the ring.)
Eve: I wouldn’t have expected this to go any way else. There is a reason Xavier is a hall of famer and former Grand Slam Champion. Maxwell put up a hell of a good fight and I do expect some great things in the future for Maxwell on the blue brand.
Deadprez: No doubt Eve! Make no mistake about it, season 14 has kicked off great and can’t wait to see what’s in the future for both Maxwell and Xavier. Xavier being a former 2x World Champion, but I expect him to be adding even more gold to his resume this season!
Gavin Kirkland: That is right Prez. Both of these men showed great potential to be a future champion on Showdown!
(The camera pans backstage to see Alexis Chambers and new Showdown roster member, Dr. Bethany Blue walking down the hallway. The newly formed tag team are discussing Alexis’ match with Bronson Daniels coming up shortly.)
Alexis Chambers: Yeah, I’m ready Bethany. Thanks, but I don’t think I’ll need the help. If Jake interjects his slimy ass, you can help me out then.
Dr. Bethany Blue: Alright, anyways. I’m excited to be teaming up with you, we’re gonna create an amazing team! Did you settle in okay with your room by the way?
Alexis Chambers: I settled in fine, thanks. And yeah, it’s gonna be a roller coaster. I didn’t expect to make an ally with you, but seeing you crying at Pain for Pride got to me for some reason. I’m glad all of this stuff happened, we never would have joined forces.
Dr Bethany Blue: Answer me one question though Alexis….
Alexis Chambers: Umm alright.
Dr. Bethany Blue: Did you ever….you know…sleep with Jake or were you just teasing me on social media like you said you were?
(There is silence between the two of them. Alexis Chambers has a straight look on her face as she slowly shrugs her shoulders.)
Dr. Bethany Blue: Oh my gosh…..
Alexis Chambers: Believe me Doc, it’s something I’m ashamed of myself for now. Also it was NOT special in any way at all. I know why Jake calls himself the “Mightiest One”….fuckin one inch wonder.
Dr. Bethany Blue: I’m glad I’m not the only one with that opinion now. I looked past it though because I just felt like I had a connec–
Alexis Chambers: FUCK JAKE SMITH!
Dr. Bethany Blue: YES FUDGE HIM! But Alexis, if we’re gonna try having you on my staff, you need to work on the cussing. You can’t be talking with that potty mouth in front of patients.
Alexis Chambers(as she flips her hand): Pfft! Patients will love me no matter what because I’m so lovable and adorable like that. If not…they can fuck right off.
(Bethany Blue covers Alexis Chambers’ mouth.)
Dr. Bethany Blue: Goldstein has to adjust and so do you, you must watch the language Alexis! Gosh darn it!
(Alexis Chambers shrugs her shoulder with a smile.)
Alexis Chambers: I’ll try, is that better?
Dr. Bethany Blue: YES! Now are you ready to take Bronson out?
Alexis Chambers: You bet your ass, I said what I said all week about him being an overrated bum who lucked into the New Breed Championship. His sexist remarks pissed me off even more after the shit he pulled with us. I’m kinda glad he was dumb and talked about their bet out loud and in a public area because our alliance wouldn’t be possible without it and we’d still be simpin over that skinny fatass dude. I’m gonna show Bronson tonight why you don’t mess with us, and why you don’t mess with the Medical Maniacs in the future and show what happens when you think of us as part of some game rather than human beings.
Dr. Bethany Blue: Well said girl. We’re gonna teach them two guys a lesson in humility and make sure they learn their lesson. After that, we’re gonna go on and do great things together as a tag team. I know I’ve put your family through a lot, but deep down I respect your brother and I see you as a new friend. I’m very excited about this and I look forward to what we’re gonna do as allies rather than enemies. Jake Smi–
Alexis Chambers: Fuck Jake Smith!
Dr Bethany Blue: FUDGE JAKE SMITH!!
???: Frick Jake Smith!
(Alexis Chambers and Dr. Bethany Blue turn to see Sierra Bradford walking into the frame.Sierra could not help, but hear the conversation between Alexis and the Doc. She’s in her ring gear, ready for her match later tonight. Sierra smiles before walking out of the frame.)
(The camera backs away and Bethany and Alexis continue their conversation as the camera fades to black.)
(Showdown returns from commercial break with Gina Romano in the middle of the ring.)
Gina Romano: Ladies and Gentlemen…the following match is scheduled for ONE FALL!!!
Gavin Kirkland: Do you think we will be lucky enough to have Alexis and Bethany come out in bikinis again? Maybe kiss a little bit more, specifically right in front of me?
Gina Romano: Introducing first, from Cocoa, Florida…weighing in at two-hundred and ten pounds…being accompanied to the ring by the other half of the Four-Twenty’s, Jake Smith…HE IS THE NEW BREED CHAMPION….BRRRRRRRRROOOOOOOOONNNNNNSOOOOOOOOOOONNNNNNNNNN DAAAAAAAAANNNNNNIIEELLLLLLLLLLLLLLLSSS!!!
(‘Nightcrawler’ by Travis Scott ft. Swae Lee & Chief Keef pumps out of the speakers, filling the arena)
Deadprez: Bronson bringing that New Breed Title to Showdown!!!
Gavin Kirkland: But Alexis is bringing bikinis…and mud…
Eve: Don’t be acting like Persephone! Put your tongue back in your mouth.
(Bronson Daniels Brosal Shuffles out of the back, with the EAW New Breed Championship around his waist. He stops at the top of the top of the ramp and points to the small crowd, before letting out a large cloud of smoke from his lungs. Jake Smith slowly steps out from the back, walking behind him as they both make their way down to the ring}
(Bronson slides into the ring under the ropes as Jake stays on the outside, walking over to the opposite side of the ring. With the New Breed Championship held into the air, Bronson lightly nods his head to the beat, a large smile on his face}
Gina Romano: AND HIS OPPONENT…
Gavin Kirkland: Here we go!!!
(Bronson’s music ends)
Gina Romano: …FROM DETROIT MICHIGAN…WEIGHING IN AT ONE-HUNDRED AND SEVENTEEN POUNDS…BEING ACCOMPANIED TO THE RING BY THE HER MEDICAL MANIACS PARTNER, DR. BETHANY BLUE…
(‘Walking the Wire’ by Imagine Dragons begins to echo through the Performance Center)
Gavin Kirkland: Oh my god…oh my god…oh my god…
Gina Romano: ‘THE MOTOR CITY GODDESS’ AAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLLLLEEEEEEEEEEEEEXIIIIIIISSSSSSSSSSSSSSS CHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAMMMMMMMBBBBBBBBBBBEEEEEEEEEEEEERRRRRRRRRSSSSSSSS!!!!
(Alexis Chambers comes skipping out from the back and stopping at the entrance. She smiles to the fans as Dr. Bethany Blue walks out from the back and stands beside her…her gaze squarely on Jake Smith)
Deadprez: If I was Jake…I would be pissing myself right now.
Gavin Kirkland: Hey! Where’s the bikinis?
Eve: That was only or Pain for Pride.
Gavin Kirkland: I feel gipped!
(Alexis goes skipping down the walkway as Dr. Blue walks down behind her, making sure to stay away from the plexiglass keeping her from the fans. Alexis climbs the stairs as Dr. Bethany waits on the outside, sliding in between the ropes. Slowly skipping around the ring, Alexis circles around Bronson Daniels)
(The ref takes Bronson’s New Breed Championship and hands it off to someone on the outside)
Eve: Alexis has stopped skipping and she is just mad staring at Jake Smith.
(DING! DING! DING!)
Deadprez: Bronson is just watching Alexis stare down at Jake Smith.
Gavin Kirkland: RIP HER TOP OFF!!!
Eve: Calm yourself!
Deadprez: Bronson walks over to Alexis and taps her on the shoulder. Alexis turns and looks at him.
Bronson (off mic): I don’t have anything to do with you two…but we got a…
Eve: AND ALEXIS JUST UNLOADS ONTO BRONSON WITH A LEFT…THEN A RIGHT…THEN A LEFT. Alexis runs to the ropes, bounces off…BUT FALLS TO THE GROUND. JAKE SMITH TRIPPED HER!!!
(The ref goes over and begins to talk to Jake Smith)
Gavin Kirkland: Dr. Bethany Blue is slowly making her way around the ring, her eyes locked on Jake.
Deadprez: Meanwhile Alexis is back up to her feet, glaring down at Jake herself. It seems all eyes are on Jake right now.
Eve: Except for Bronson! Bronson Daniels runs and bounces off the ropes on the opposite side of the ring…MISSILE DROPKICK ONTO ALEXIS CHAMBERS…SENDING HER TO THE OUTSIDE AND RIGHT INTO JAKE SMITH! BOTH OF THEM CRASH TO THE GROUND! Dr. Bethany comes running over to help Alexis.
Gavin Kirkland: How could Jake be so damn lucky?
Deadprez: Bethany helps Alexis to her feet. Jake reaches out to her, trying to get a hand up…AND SHE JUST KICKED HIM IN THE BALLS!!! JAKE IS WRITHING AROUND IN PAIN!!!
Eve: Alexis slides back into the ring. Bronson quickly runs over to her, but she ducks the clothesline attempt…she quickly turns and grabs him around the neck…drops down…BACKSTABBER!!! Bronson is grabbing at his back in pain. Alexis quickly back up to her feet. She steps back and bounces off the ropes…hops over Bronson…grabs the ropes and ricochets herself onto the top rope. HEART STOPPER FROM ALEXIS!!!
Gavin Kirkland: NO!!! BRONSON DANIELS WAS UP AND CAUGHT HER IN MID-AIR!!! He’s trying to position her for the Last Smoke…but she wriggles free and quickly slides to the outside.
(Dr. Bethany Blue walks over to her and is talking to her as Alexis looks up into the ring)
Deadprez: For a moment there, Alexis was going to town. Now Bronson is inside the ring faking like he is smoking from a blunt and pretends to blow the smoke at Alexis and Dr. Blue!
Gavin Kirkland: The nerve of that man! How can you disrespect such beautiful women?!?!
Eve: Meanwhile Jake has found his way to the opposite side of the outside mat, still limping, but he is away from the two former ladies of his life.
Gavin Kirkland: I need him to teach me a few pointers.
Deadprez: Jake is up on the apron in the corner and calls Bronson over to him. Bronson goes over, turning his back to Alexis and Bethany.
Eve: That’s going to be a bad idea.
Gavin Kirkland: I would turn my back to them, and my front and my side…anything they want.
Deadprez: Alexis slides into the ring. She charges at Bronson. SHE JUMPS…BRONSON MOVES OUT OF THE WAY AND ALEXIS SLAMS INTO THE TURNBUCKLE BUT HITS JAKE SMITH! JAKE GOES FLYING OFF THE APRON AND SLAMS INTO THE DIVIDERS ON THE OUTSIDE.
Eve: This just isn’t his day, is it? Alexis is on her feet, smiling as she sees Jake grabbing at his ribs. Bronson grabs her around the waste…SNAP SUPLEX…BUT HE HOLDS ON…ANOTHER SNAP SUPLEX…Bronson quick to his feet. Alexis up to hers…and Bronson is…holding his hand-up for a high five?
Gavin Kirkland: How could he slap her like that? Alexis stumbles away, grabbing her left cheek. Bronson quickly rebounds off the ropes as Alexis turns to look at him…MONSTER CLOTHESLINE AND HE ALMOST TOOK ALEXIS’ HEAD CLEAN OFF. BRONSON WITH THE QUICK PIN.
Eve: And Alexis with the kickout, but she is grabbing her neck now. Obviously, that was heck of a brutal clothesline he just took her down with.
Gavin Kirkland: I could always message it for her.
Deadprez: The ref is bent over talking to Alexis…Dr. Blue is up on the apron and Bronson doesn’t see her. Bronson runs to bounce off the ropes…AND DR. BETHANY GRABS HIM FROM BEHIND…SHOVING HER BLACK GLOVE COVERED HAND INTO HIS MOUTH!!! SAY AHHHH!!!
Eve: Turn around ref!!!
Gavin Kirkland: Let the Doctor do her thing!
Deadprez: Jake is back on this side of the ring. He grabs Dr. Bethany’s leg, causing her to let go of Bronson. Dr. Blue turns around and is chewing out Jake.
Eve: Alexis is back up, but Bronson is watching Jake and Dr. Bethany. Alexis charges…BRONSON MOVES AND ALEXIS RUNS INTO DR. BETHANY!!! DR. BETHANY GOES FLYING OFF THE APRON AND SLAMS INTO THE ANNOUNCERS TABLE!!!
Gavin Kirkland: Jake is laughing his butt off! What is wrong with you, man?
Eve: Alexis is just standing there apologizing to Dr. Bethany. Bronson charges up from behind…BITCH I KNOCKED YOUR HEAD OFF!!! ALEXIS CRUMBLES TO THE MAT!!! SHE SLIDES OUT OF THE RING TO THE OUTSIDE MAT!!! The ref starts the count.
Jake (off mic): Not like this, bro!
Deadprez: Bronson is inside the ring doing the Brosal Shuffle as Jake…helps Alexis up to her feet?
Gavin Kirkland: Such a gentleman! Jake just pushed Alexis back into the ring!
Eve: Bronson drops down for the cover.
Bronson (Off mic): Come on!
Deadprez: Bronson quickly back to his feet and he is just standing there waiting for Alexis, who is using the ropes to climb to her own feet. Alexis turns and Bronson lands a foot square to her midsection. Bronson is quick to grab her…LIFTS HER UP FOR A POWERB- NO! ALEXIS GRABS BRONSON AND IS LAYING INTO THE TOP OF HIS HEAD. Bronson stumbles back…AND DROPS ALEXIS TO HER FEET! Alexis quickly runs and bounces off the ropes behind Bronson. She jumps HUGE BULLDOG ONTO BRONSON! Alexis quick to her feet and to the turnbuckle as Bronson rolls over onto his back. Alexis on the top rope…HEART STOPPER!!! HEART STOPPER ONTO BRONSON DANIELS!!! ALEXIS HOOKS THE LEG!!!
Eve: Kickout by Bronson! But that seemed like a half-hearted kickout. He is in pain! Alexis smacks the mat and yells at the ref.
Gavin Kirkland: She can yell at me anytime! Alexis back to her feet and she sees Jake Smith trying to talk to Dr. Bethany. She runs across the ring, slides to the outside…Jake turns around…LIGHTS OUT ON JAKE SMITH!!!
Ref (Off Mic): ONE!
Gavin Kirkland: Alexis back into the ring under the bottom rope. She pops up and Bronson is up too, he charges her, but she ducks under a clothesline attempt. Bronson turns and Alexis lands a boot to his stomach. She grabs him…and…is she going to attempt a powerbomb? NO! BRONSON REVERSES IT AND FLIPS HER OVER HIS BACK TO THE OUTSID-NO ALEXIS TURNS IN MID-AIR, GRABBING THE ROPE AND LANDING ON THE APRON. Alex pulls back on the rope and slingshots herself to the top rope…she jumps as Bronson turns around. She lands on his shoulders…oh my…
Eve: She spins for the Hurrican-BRONSON WITH THE STOP IN HER MOMENTUM AS HE REFUSES TO GO DOWN! He grabs her legs as she dangles upside down. Alexis is swinging her arms around wildly. Bronson…is doing a verified Brosal Shuffle?
Deadprez: Alexis manages to grab Bronson’s leg…AND SHE BITES HIM!!! Bronson lets her go and grabs at his leg. Alexis quickly back to her feet…she charges Bronson…BACKSPIN KICK AND IT SENDS BRONSON THROUGH THE ROPES TO THE OUTSIDE!!!
Gavin Kirkland: The New Breed Champion is in a daze on the outside.
Ref (Mic): ONE!
Gavin Kirkland: Bronson slowly and very wobbly back to his feet.
Gavin Kirkland: Bronson over to the apron.
Gavin Kirkland: He pulls himself up and rolls back into the ring.
Eve: It seems Jake Smith is up to. He is up on the apron and is trying to climb into the ring…but the ref stopped him.
Gavin Kirkland: Meanwhile, Bronson has managed to pull himself to his knees. AND ALEXIS CHAMBERS WITH THE FOH!!! FOH!!! FOH!!! BRONSON IS LAID OUT. Alexis hooks his leg for the cover.
Deadprez: But Jake has the ref’s attention! Dr. Bethany climbs up onto the opposite end of the same apron…she does a little side-shuffle…TJD ON JAKE SMITH!!! DR. BETHANY BLUE JUST HIT THE TDJ ON JAKE SMITH AND THE MAN FALLS HARD OFF THE APRON!!!
Eve: The ref turns around and still sees Alexis with the pin on Bronson. He runs over.
Gavin Kirkland: NOOOOOOOO! BRONSON WITH THE ELEVENTH HOUR KICKOUT!!! Alexis is up, grabbing the ropes and shaking them wildly in frustration! Hasn’t Jake already caused enough trouble?
Eve: Alexis looks pissed as she pulls Bronson to his feet. She hooks one leg over his head…LEXI LO-NO! BRONSON RUNS BACKWARDS AND SLAMS ALEXIS INTO THE CORNER!!! Alexis lets go and falls onto her feet. Bronson takes a few steps back and charges…he jumps as Alexis looks up…LEAPING DOUBLE FOOT STOMP AND HE JUST BURIED ALEXIS INTO THE MAT. BRONSON WITH THE QUICK HOOK AND COVER…
Deadprez: Dr. Bethany just grabbed Alexis’s foot and placed it on the ropes. The ref sees it and stops the count.
Gavin Kirkland: That’s called some good teamwork.
Eve: It’s cheating.
Gavin Kirkland: These two beauties would NEVER cheat. How DARE you! I think you’re just jealous.
Eve: And you are delusional.
Deadprez: Bronson is up and yelling at Dr. Bethany. AND ALEXIS WITH THE QUICK ROLL-UP!!!
Deadprez: NO! Bronson with another last second kickout! Alexis is back up to her feet…and so is Bronson. Alexis charges but Bronson jumps over her. She bounces off the ropes and charges him again…BUT HE JUMPS OVER HER AGAIN. She jumps before she hits the ropes…lands on the top rope…jumps…MOONSAULT ONTO BRONSON BUT HE CATCHES HER WITH HER LEGS AROUND HIS NECK!!!
Gavin Kirkland: LUCKY!
Deadprez: Alexis is wriggling around and manages to break loose from his hold…but she keeps one leg around his neck…LEXI LOCK!!! SHE HAS BRONSON IN THE LEXI LOCK!!! THIS COULD BE THE END FOR THE NEW BREED CHAMPION!!!
Eve: Bronson is fighting to reach out for the closest rope, fighting to stay on his feet. Alexis is writhing around, trying to force Bronson to his knees or even to get that right arm locked farther back. Bronson gets a step towards the ropes…then another…then…NO HE IS DOWN TO ONE KNEE AND ALEXIS IS PULLING BACK HARD ON THAT RIGHT ARM!!! Bronson reaches forward! HE IS SO CLOSE!!!
Gain Kirkland: Alexis is wrenching harder on that arm! Bronson looks like he is about to tap…he…is…going…to…tap…
Deadprez: NO! BRONSON JUST BARELY GRABS ONTO THE ROPE AND THE REF IS TELLING ALEXIS TO LET GO!
Gavin Kirkland: Alexis reluctantly let’s go and Bronson is grabbing at that right arm.
Dr. Bethany Blue (Off mic): I’ll check that later, Bronson!
Eve: Alexis is up again and she looks furious. She watches Bronson slowly gets to his feet…and she charges him. BUT BRONSON DROPS AND PULLS DOWN THE ROPE!!! ALEXIS GOES FLYING OVER THE PULLED DOWN ROPE AND CRASHES HARD ON THE MAT OUTSIDE!!! Bronson Daniels does his little Brosal Shuffle again…
Deadprez: …but he turns and runs, bouncing off the ropes…runs forward…SOMERSAULT SENTON OVER THE TOP ROPE ONTO ALEXIS CHAMBERS!!! I CAN’T BELIEVE I JUST SAW HIM DO THAT!!! I THINK HE JUST KILLED ALEXIS!!!
Gavin Kirkland: NO!!! I can nurse her back to health, I know I can!
Eve: Alexis isn’t moving…but Bronson is slowly rolling over in an attempt to get up. But here comes Dr. Bethany Blue. She is standing there, waiting for Bronson to get up. The ref seems to be yelling at her, not to do anything…but it looks like she is preparing another TJD!
Deadprez: BUT JAKE SMITH TURNS HER AROUND AND LANDS A BOOT TO HER MIDSECTION. He grabs her…BROKEN WINGS!!! BROKEN WINGS TO DR. BLUE AND THAT DOC IS OUT!!!
Eve: Bronson is back to his feet. He pulls a lethargic Alexis up to the apron and rolls her back into the ring. He climbs up onto the apron…then onto the ropes…to the top turnbuckle. Bronson Daniels…does a little shoulder dance while he is standing there…he jumps for the senton…BUT ALEXIS USES ALL HER STRENGTH TO GET TO HER FEET AND CONNECT WITH A FOH AS BRONSON COMES DOWN!!! SHE USED THE LAST BIT OF ENERGY SHE HAD TO HIT THAT! BRONSON IS DOWN!!! ALEXIS IS DOWN!!! WHO IS GOING TO GET THIS?
Jake (Off mic): BRONSON! GET UP!!
(Jake bangs on the apron)
Gavin Kirkland: What is Jake doing?
Deadprez: Jake Smith turns to the limited crowd and is…clapping in rhythm.
Jake (Off mic): BRO-GET-UP! BRO-GET-UP! BRO-GET-UP!
Crowd (Off mic): BRO-GET-UP! BRO-GET-UP! BRO-GET-UP!
Gavin Kirkland: Well good luck with that, people. We all just watched Bronson take an FOH in mid-air.
Jake (Off mic): BRO-GET-UP! BRO-GET-UP! BRO-GET-UP!
Crowd (Off mic): BRO-GET-UP! BRO-GET-UP! BRO-GET-UP!
Eve: Well open your eyes, Gavin! The New Breed Champion is stirring.
Crowd (Off mic): BRO-GET-UP! BRO-GET-UP! BRO-GET-UP!
Eve: The Champ is to his knees. He still looks like he is dazed though.
Crowd (Off mic): BRO-GET-UP! BRO-GET-UP! BRO-GET-UP!
Deadprez: New Breed Champ is on his feet!
Gavin Kirkland: And so is Alexis!
Deadprez: Alexis charges Bronson, but he counters with a hip toss! Alexis quickly gets to her feet, charges again…another hip toss! Alexis back up once more…she charges…and jumps…CROSSBOD- NO! BRONSON CATCHES HER IN MID-AIR!
Eve: Is he doing the Brosal Shuffle while holding Alexis like that?
Gavin Kirkland: The disrespect!
Deadprez: Bronson stops dancing…BACKBREAKER on Alexis and he drops her to the mat. Both of these competitors look very winded and both are obviously in pain.
Eve: They both have taken a beating and keep pushing forward.
Deadprez: Dr. Bethany Blue looks to be slowly getting up on the outside.
Gavin Kirkland: Well she is quickly getting me up, bending over like that.
Deadprez: She climbs up onto the apron…and Jake does the same on the other side of the ring. Dr. Blue climbs into the ring…SO DOES JAKE. BETHANY CHARGES BRONSON BUT JAKE STOPS HERE AND THEY ARE TRADING PUNCHES. THEY ARE GOING CRAZY ON EACH OTHER! THE REF HAS LOST CONTROL BUT IS STILL TRYING TO GET THOSE TWO OUT OF THE RING!
Eve: Bronson is just watching those two go at it and is…laughing?
Gavin Kirkland: Jake whips Dr. Bethany into the corner…he charges…BUT DR. BLUE MOVES AND JAKE SLAMS INTO THE TURNBUCKLE! He stumbles out of the corner…into the ropes….AND DR. BLUE CLOTHESLINES HIM OUT OF THE RING!!! SO MUCH BRAINS…SO MUCH BEAUTY!!!
Deadprez: The ref is now talking to Dr. Bethany, trying to get her out of the ring.
Eve: Uh-oh…Alexis is up onto her knees behind Bronson…LOW BLOW!!! SHE JUST ROCKED HIS WORLD WITH A LOW BLOW AND BRONSON DROPS TO THE GROUND GRABBING HIMSELF!!!
Gavin Kirkland: Taking the opportunity! Again…so much brains…so much beauty.
Eve: The ref turns around as Alexis hops onto the hurt Bronson…hooks the leg…
Deadprez: Bronson is starting to get a little animated…BUT ALEXIS PUTS HER LEGS ON THE ROPES!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Eve: And Alexis just stole a win from the New Breed Champion!
Gina Romano: And your winner….ALLLLLLLLEEEEXIIIIIIIIIIIIIISSSSSS CHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAMMMMMMMBBBEEEEEEEEEEEEEEERRRRRRRRRSSSSSSSSSS!!!
Deadprez: Alexis and Dr. Blue quickly slide out of the ring with their hands in the air. Meanwhile Jake has slid back into the ring and it looks like he and Bronson are arguing about what happened.
Gavin Kirkland: I’ll tell you what happened! Alexis beat the New Breed Champion. Those ladies were just too smart for the 420s tonight. I don’t know about you two, but I could really go for a cigarette after watching that match.
(The commentators talk amongst themselves for a moment.)
(The camera opens up to a panning shot around the socially distanced crowd enjoying the first episode of Showdown in season 14. The camera then centers on Gina Romano inside the ring.)
Gina Romano: Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome the newest addition to the Showdown roster… one half of the EAW Unified Tag Team Champions… RAVEN ROBERTS!!
(The crowd erupts in cheers as “Mark My Words” by Doll Skin hits and the stage is lit in all blue lighting. Raven then runs out onto the stage full of joy and energy with her Unified Tag Team Championship belt around her waist. She wears blue jeans over a pair of blue converse sneakers with a blue Showdown branded hoody. Her fingernails are painted a bright showdown blue and even her eye makeup has a blue hue to it. As she steps to the center stage she squats down bringing her arms together.)
(Raven leaps into the air and throws her arms out as confetti cannons go off and shoot blue confetti all over the arena. The Showdown fans obviously love all of this and cheer wildly for the new star on their favorite brand. Raven runs to each side of the stage, throwing her hands out towards the plexiglass walls and hyping the fans up more and more before beginning to make her way to the ring.)
Deadprez: Raven Roberts is part of the Showdown roster! We really won with this draft pick! Half of the tag champs, Pain for Pride main eventer, this is a woman who continues to exceed expectations in her career. I can expect she’s going to accomplish many great things here as a proud member of the blue brand!
Gavin Kirkland: I mean… she’s okay I guess. Not blonde. But she’s got boobs and a great ass!!
(Eve backhands Gavin.)
Gavin Kirkland: I said she’s a great asset to have on Showdown! I swear! Plus look at her all blue everything! Such Showdown pride! It brings a tear to my eye…
Eve: Raven has worked her entire life to become the woman she is today. She’s been one to define hard work even when things got rough. She’s still the longest reigning Universal Women’s Champion though that record is getting dangerously close to broken by the current champion, a former favorite from Showdown last year, Minerva.
(Raven climbs up and into the ring, stepping between the ropes. She moves to the center of the ring and throws her arms out once more as blue confetti now shoots out from the four ring posts. She unlatches her championship and places it over her shoulder and receives a microphone from Gina who leaves the ring. She speaks with an excited energy.)
Raven Roberts: Wow… I’m really here. An actual member of Showdown. Of the greatest show with the greatest fans!!
Raven Roberts: My goodness! The history! The glitz and the glamor! The lights and the stage! How wonderful! The show where EAW really built its identity! The first brand that existed! How truly amazing all of this is! And then there’s all of you out here in the crowd! It’s no secret that the Showdown stans are the greatest stans that ever stanned!
Raven Roberts: The same fans who urged my own husband on to his first world title win!
Raven Roberts: The same fans that erupted in celebration as Cameron Ella Ava became the first woman to win the Answers World Championship inside of the Extreme Elimination Chamber!
Raven Roberts: The same fans that made sure to let people like Ahren Fournier know that it didn’t matter if he was champion and thought he didn’t have to show up, you all deserved better!
Raven Roberts: The same crowd that believed so much in Jamie O’Hara that you saw him overcome the tyranny of Mr. DEDEDE and become a world champion once again!
Raven Roberts (in much sterner tone): The same fans that cheered on as they watched my life be torn to shreds in front of them…
(The crowd’s cheers fade to a stunned silence as the reality of what Raven just said settled in. Raven stands there, looking at all of the fans murmuring amongst themselves as the giddy smile she’d kept plastered on this whole time faded away and she look much more aggravated.)
Raven Roberts: Don’t just sit there wondering if you heard me right. You did. The showdown crowd, the ones who cheered to have me come out here. Who praised me being drafted to the blue brand. Who seem to love me now because I’m here… are the ones who watched my own medical issues, marital issues, and everything in between be dragged out here so that I could be humiliated with no recompense ever to come my way and they loved it. Cheered for it. Laughed about it. Ate it all up. And why? Simply because my opponent was from the very brand they all cling to. The showdown stans never bend, right? Loyal to the very end. So… why in gods name did anyone expect that I’d walk out here and suddenly just leap into your open arms all because Ryan Wilson made the first correct action in his career by drafting me? There are children here in the audience. So I have to assume the adults with them are their parents. Then let me pose a little question to you all while I have your stunned silence. If your children were dead, and I mocked you for it, would you ever forgive me?
(She puts her arm holding the microphone down and looks into the crowd as if she expects a response. She waits for just a few seconds before lifting the mic again to speak.)
Raven Roberts: No. You’d never let that go. So don’t expect otherwise outta me just because you skipped getting a COVID coated Big Mac a couple of times this week to buy a pair grease stained tickets from a scalper outside. But I’m not out here to mock the fans. No. I actually have standards and ultimately, I just no longer care. I saw how little anyone actually cared about what I’d fought through when I came to Showdown as well as at Pain for Pride during my match. I’m still the same woman. I’m still Raven Roberts. But I’m done being beholden to this idea that I have to somehow please everyone in the stands. Love me. Hate me. It doesn’t matter. By the end of this season, all of you and everyone in that locker room will have one common feeling about me. And it’s that all of you will fucking respect me.
(She sets her title down and grabs at the neck of her hoodie, pulling it off to show the simple black tank top underneath. She holds the blue Showdown hoodie up in the air.)
Raven Roberts: You see this right here? My flag to fly? My brand to represent? Fuck that. The color of the shirt I wear has nothing to do with my value as an athlete or a person. It’s doesn’t determine my journey or my life. It doesn’t decide who I am. All this blue shit, it only represents a decision made by an asshole who is vastly overpaid to do less work now than ever before. I say this as someone who was part of the winning collective inside of War Games last season, the greatest brand versus brand match we put on: brand loyalty is meaningless and the fools who buy into it year after year are nothing more than that. It’s an arbitrary loyalty that is betrayed every single year when the draft rolls around. And I’m not letting a fucking color pallette on a stage decide what I’m going to do with my life and career. I said a long time ago that I’m here to put my name amongst the legends of this industry, and unlike so many who were projected to do that but have come and gone and come and gone since I have arrived in EAW…. I’M. STILL. HERE. And it doesn’t matter if I’m on Voltage. Showdown. Dynasty. Empire. NEO. Turbo. Battleground. None of it makes a difference. I’m here to do one thing, the thing all of you paid to see me do, and that’s fight. I spent all of last year controlling my anger. Trying to “better my temperament” as management would put it backstage. No more. I’m not holding anything back. If I want it, I’m going to kick the ass of whoever has it and take it. Because I’ve still got so much left, still so much more to earn, to prove.
(She tosses the hoodie to the outside, leaving it where it lands. She picks up her title belt, placing it back over her shoulder.)
Raven Roberts: I’m already one half of the greatest tag team this company has to offer. A reigning tag team champion. But to quote the big vanilla championship dick I sleep with every night, that doesn’t stop my singles career. I’m the only woman left with a New Breed title reign. They tried so fucking hard to replicate what I did back in the day and yet here we are. I’m the only one still here. Meaning that I have a rather unique opportunity in front of me. Consuela and her Interwire Championship are all that stands between me and being the first woman to complete the Grand Slam in EAW history. Don’t think any of those details are lost on me. And Jamie O’Hara might be the Ace but I’ll gladly step to him for his title. I said in an interview last year that I’ve always felt something special about the Answers World Championship. Maybe that’s because one day I’m going to win it. And let’s not forget, the hot topic whore that holds the Universal Women’s Championship right now still has some payback coming her way. In the year of 2020, a year where if 2021 only comes with two major natural disasters and a Trump Re-election we might actually say “not bad,” Raven Roberts is going to make history once again. And god help anyone who stands in my way. All eyes on me.
(Raven drops the microphone and instead of her usual music, “In My Bones” by the Score comes over the loudspeakers. If it weren’t for the music, you could hear a pin drop inside the Performance Center. Raven takes her title and rolls out of the ring, making a point to step on the blue Showdown hoodie as she makes her way towards the ramp and back up through the curtain.)

Gina Romano: THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SCHEDULED FOR ONE FALL!
Small socially-distancing crowd in the Performance Center: One Fall!!!!!
Gina Romano: INTRODUCING FIRST… FROM SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA… ‘ THE MULTIVERSAL CONSTANT’ … SIERRAAAAAAAA BRADFORD!!!
( ‘Hey Superstar’ by Madina Lake blasts throughout the Performance Center as Sierra Bradford confidently walks down to the ring as the crowd cheers.)
Gavin Kirkland: Hot damn! We got her in the draft :uh: !?
Eve: Calm yourself Gavin..
Gavin: I’m calm. Just stunned at that fact that I’m so close to greatness! You know, Sierra Bradford was the Interim Specialist Champion for approximately 5 Minutes and 55 seconds!
Gina Romano: AND HER OPPONENT… FROM DETROIT, MICHIGAN… WEIGHING IN AT 220 POUNDS… HE IS ‘THE XTREME CLASSIC’… JUSTINNNNN WINDGATEEEEE!!!!!!
(‘Smoke & Drive’ by Machine Gun Kelly plays throughout the Performance Center as Justin Windgate takes a glance around and methodically walks to the ring where he is met with a clear mix of cheers and boos.)
Deadprez: Speaking of the Draft, this man right here was one of my favorite pick ups. He had a great Season 13 and I know he’s looking forward to making this Season just as- if not more amazing than the last.
Eve: Justin Windgate was mere moments away from leaving Pain For Pride 13 with the Cash in The Vault briefcase, before he was stopped by the eventual winner of the match in Darcy May Morgan.
Deadprez: With a loss like that, you’ve got to shake off the cobwebs and get back to work. If I’m Justin, tonight I try to forget about Pain For Pride and make strides to put myself ahead of the pack. It’s a new season, everyones hungry- you’ve got to make yourself standout!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Deadprez: And here we go! Windgate quickly charges at Bradford- but the smaller Bradford baseball slides between Windgates legs and gets back to her feet as Windgate turns around he is met with a swift standing missile dropkick to the face- knocking him down and nearly out of the ring!
Gavin Kirkland: But Windgate holds onto the second rope to avoid completely falling out of the ring!!! Sierra Bradford quickly realizes how groggy Justin Windgate is and she rushes him as he gets to his feet on the apron connecting with a HUGE SPEAR TO THE OUTSIDE!!!
Eve: NO- Justin Windgate SIDESTEPS THE SPEAR AT THE LAST SECOND AND USES BRADFORDS OWN MOMENTUM AGAINST HER AS SHE GOES CRASHING OUT OF THE RING ONTO THE FLOOR!
Deadprez: Windgates drops down from the apron to pick Bradford up off the floor and he SLAMS HER SPINE FIRST INTO THE APRON AND YOU CAN SEE THE PAIN ALL OVER SIERRA BRADFORDS FACE!!! Justin Windgate is not playing around tonight.
Gavin Kirkland: Justin Windgate rolls Sierra Bradford into the ring and begins climbing the turnbuckle! Are we going to see the X-Factor?!! SIERRA BRADFORD Is BASICALLY MOTIONLESS IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING! AND JUSTIN WINDGATE IS READY TO TAKE FLIGHT AND HE DOES!! X-FACTOR! X-FACTOR !!!!!!!!!!

Eve: That is twice now that Justin Windgate has used Sierra Bradfords own momentum against her and it’s working in his favor tonight. Justin goes for the pin
Deadprez: Kick out by Sierra Bradford! Justin Windgate drops down to pick Sierra up before he launches her over into the corner. Windgates going for something big here! He places her on the top turnbuckle but is quickly met with a left hook to the face as Sierra realizes what’s going on and attempts to fight out of it! WINDGATE IS NOT BACKING DOWN AS HE THROWS A RIGHT OF HIS OWN AND NOW A LEFT AND NOW BOTH BRADFORD AND WINDGATE ARE TRADING BLOWS BACK AND FORTH ON THE TOP ROPE AS BRADFORD NAILS WINDGATE WITH A LEFT THAT CAUSES HIM TO LOSES HIS FOOTING AND FALL DOWN TO THE SECOND ROPE!

AND THIS MATCH HAS TO BE OVER NOW AS BRADFORD ONCE AGAIN GOES FOR THE COVER!
Eve: SOMEHOW SOMEWAY JUSTIN WINDGATE MANAGES TO KICK OUT! AND THIS MATCH IS STILL GOING ON! AT EACH AND EVERY TURN THESE TWO HAVE COUNTERED AND REVERSED EACH OTHER! NO ONE WANTS TO LOSE THEIR FIRST MATCH OF THE SEASON BUT WE MUST HAVE A WINNER! AND NOW SIERRA IS BACK TO HER FEET!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Gina Romano: HERE IS YOUR WINNER, ‘THE XTREME CLASSIC’ … JUSTINNNNNNNNNNNN WINDGATEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!
( ‘Smoke & Drive’ by Machine Gun Kelly blasts throughout the Performance Center as Justin Windgate celebrates his hard-fought victory in the corner acknowledging his fans.)
Deadprez: What a match! I told you all from the get-go Justin Windgate was going to have to come out here and put the memories of last season aside so he could get the job done tonight- and that’s exactly what he did! The sky’s the limit for this young man!
Eve: These two amazing elitists went out there and put it all on the line but in the end it was Justin Windgate who walked away with the victory. I look forward to seeing what Season 14 has in store for him!
(Camera shows Justin Windgate celebrating in the ring one last time before cutting to elsewhere.)
(The scene fades into the locker room, where Cage is sitting on a bench as he’s applying white tape to his wrists. He stares off to the distance, clearly focused on destroying Shaker Jones in just a matter of moments.)
???: Cage, can I have a moment with you?
(Cage rolls his eyes, a little annoyed as he looks at Kyra Phillips, who was the one bugging him for an interview. Cage stands up from his feet.)
Cage: I think that I can spare you a moment. Shoot.
Kyra Phillips: At Pain for Pride, you were the one pinned by Chris Elite in the fatal-4-way match. I think that everyone wants to know what your mindset is going into this season?
Cage: I’ve never been the one to give a cookie-cutter response. I am going to tell you exactly how I felt about having my shoulders pinned at Pain for Pride. I am annoyed. I am annoyed with these people trying to make a name for themselves at the expense of me. It’s disrespectful, Kyra. That was the theme of all Season 13. “Let’s use Cage to make new stars!” and I spent the entire season on Dynasty having people put me down and disrespecting me like I wasn’t the same man who carried the Showdown brand on my back? Nah, suck my dick. I have some respect for Showdown and it’s where I gathered a lot of success as I elevated the EAW Championship to newer heights. Instead of being someone who StarrStan should have been more than fortunate to have on their brand, he and along with EAW management, placed me in opportunities to FAIL. Pain for Pride was a match that was set for me to fail. I’m aware of Dynasty’s favoritism towards Serena Bennett. I’m aware of this company bending over backwards to protect Chris Elite and that stupid Gawd Contract of his. I’m aware of Fatpact being friends with the right people behind the scenes and that’s the reason why he’s not put in positions to fail despite putting zero effort in the ring unless he’s some sort of champion. Do you want to know who has been giving it his all and getting jackshit?
(Cage points directly to himself.)
Cage: Me and that’s going to change here, Kyra. I stay hungry. It doesn’t matter how many times people try to push me down, but I won’t stay down. I will get right back up, dust myself off and create as much hell as possible. That’s something that our astound “General Manager” needs to take under consideration. If I were Ryan Wilson, I would do everything I can to not get on my bad side because he won’t like it when he’s on my bad side.
Kyra Phillips: With you getting placed on Showdown, what’s the plan for this season?
Cage: I reigned as EAW Champion for six months and I plan to do the same thing as Answers World Champion. I’m aware that Jamie O’Hara will be looking to send a message to the Showdown locker room and that’s something that I am going to be keeping a close eye on. I don’t think that EAW has witnessed Cage versus Jamie O’Hara, so that’s going to be a match that I am going to be more than thrilled to have this season. As of right now, I am going to let him have his little fun, but once he faces me in the ring, it’s game fucking over. I got nothing to lose, Kyra. That is something that gives me an edge towards the rest of the competition. It’s one of the things that makes me the most dangerous man in the world. Because of that, it should make me the most feared man in the locker room. Last season, I had to elevate your Drake Kings. I needed to elevate your Impacts. I needed to elevate all of these precious flavors of the month, but don’t be expecting that same energy going into this season. Showdown was the house that I built. Just because I was away from it, doesn’t mean it was no longer my house. It was my house then and it’s my house now. Anyone that stands across the ring with me is going to fall and that is something that my opponent, Shaker Jones, is going to need to be on a look out for. I’m done with talking. I gotta murder a dickeater.
(Cage escorts himself out of the interview, leaving Kyra Phillips as it fades into commercial break.)
(“I Love It Loud: by Kiss hits the speakers as Shaker Jones struts out onto the stage. Following behind him are Detective Biggums, Detective Asson, Detective Ty and Detective Mikayla, aka The Bozo Victims Unit. Biggums pats Shaker on the shoulders before Shaker nods his head and makes his way down the ramp towards the ring.)
Gina Romano: Making his way to the ring first, from Inglis, Manitoba, Canada! Weighing in at 238lbs! Being accompanied by the Bozo Victims Unit! THE CANADIAN WOLF…….SHAKERRRRRRRRRRRR JONESSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!
Deadprez: Shaker’s out here in search of a real good rebuttal after a disappointing loss. Y’all think he can bounce back?
Gavin Kirkland: If he takes advantage of those damn detectives then anything is possible
Eve: The BVU have essentially given Shaker a new career resurgence and he’s been very impressive in recent weeks – he has a tough opponent in the form of Cage though.
(Shaker slides into the ring and stands in the middle of it, nodding his head to his theme song. He takes off his leather jacket and hands it over to Biggums who stands outside of the ring alongside the rest of the Bozo Victims Unit. I Love It Loud gradually fades out.)
(“Smells Like Teen Spirit” By Nirvana hits, as Cage steps out onto the stage. With a look filled with fury and determination, Cage makes his way down the ramp and towards the ring.)
Gina Romano: And his opponent, from Edward, Alberta, Canada! Weighing in at 230 pounds! EXPLICIT CONTENT….. CAGEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: Similar to Shaker, Cage also suffered a disappointing loss at Pain for Pride in a fatal 4 way, at the hands of Chris Elite. So just like Shaker, Cage is out there to prove that he’s better than what he showed at Pain for Pride.
Deadprez: Cage is also here to make a statement and show every single one of us watching that Showdown’s bound to be HIS show!
Eve: He’s got a great opportunity to do so against one of the staples here on Showdown last season!
(DING!!!! DING!!!! DING!!!!)
(Shaker leans over the ropes to talk to the Bozo Victims Unit – they’re trying to get him pumped up and prepared for his Season 14 debut. On the other side of the ring is Cage. Like a silent monster, he stands in the middle of the ring and stares a hole through Shaker. After a long while, Shaker finally finishes talking to the BVU and starts circling around Cage, but Cage doesn’t let his eyes go off Shaker.)
Deadprez: Shaker starts to walk to the middle of the ring and suddenly gets in the face of Cage with a big smirk on his face.
Eve: CAGE AIN’T HAVING IT THOUGH! CAGE THROWS SHAKER INTO THE CORNER AND NAILS HIM WITH A BIG BOOT! Cage clearly ain’t here for any games! Cage drags Shaker up to his feet and leans him against the corner. He wastes no time and begins to unload on Shaker with a flurry of vicious stomps straight to the gut, eventually knocking Shaker down on his ass into a seated position! Cage then grabs a hold of both of Shaker’s arms and drags him up to his feet. He keeps a hold of Shaker’s right arm and irish whips him into the opposite corner. Cage sets his eyes on the prize and charges at Shaker with a Stinger Splas-
Deadprez: NO! SHAKER JONES SLITHERS OUT OF THE WAY AND CAGE GOES FLYING HEAD FIRST INTO THE TURNBUCKLE! BUT WAIT! SHAKER GETS DOWN AND ROLLS UP CAGE!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEE! TWOOOO-
Eve: Cage quickly escapes the roll up attempt. Both men immediately shoot up to their feet, Shaker gets up quicker though and takes the first shot at Cage, nailing him with a quick forearm smash. Cage retaliates though and nails Shaker with a piercing backhand slap across the chest! Shaker tries to get his revenge and goes for another one of those forearms..
Gavin Kirkland: But Cage fends off the attempt and nails Shaker with another one of those ear-splitting backhand slaps! He follows that up with another one! AND ANOTHER ONE! Cage has Shaker stunned in the middle of the ring. Cage charges at the ropes, he rebounds off them and runs at Shaker….AND CONNECTS WITH A MASSIVE DISCUS LARIAT! THE DIAMOND SAINT SPECIAL! Shaker comes crashing down on the canvas from the brutal impact of the lariat!
Eve: Shaker quickly tries to roll out of the ring into the safety and comfort of his Bozo Victims Unit…but before Shaker can get out of the ring, Cage grabs a hold of his hair and drags him back to the middle of the ring. He picks him up to his feet and hits him with a knife-like knee to the stomach! Cage follows that up with a hammer strike to the back, knocking Shaker down to his right knee only. Cage goes for another hammer strike but Shaker fights back. He hits Cage with a quick shot to the stomach, forcing Cage off him. Shaker quickly climbs back up to his feet and hits Cage with a quick clothesline..NO! CAGE DUCKS UNDER THE CLOTHESLINE ATTEMPT AND LOCKS HIS ARMS AROUND THE WAIST OF SHAKER JONES THEN LIFTS HIM UP AND HITS HIM WITH A BIG GERMAN SUPLEX! CAGE GETS DOWN AND HOOKS THE LEG..
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOOOOOO-
Deadprez: Shaker manages to kick out! Cage doesn’t waste any time at all, he brings Shaker Jones up to a seated position and strikes him with a stiff kick right into his back. Cage follows that up by marching to the ropes, he then rebounds off them and runs at Shaker Jones and clobbers him with a Penalty Kick straight to his chest! Cage runs to the ropes again and charges back at Shaker then punishes him with a diving knee drop!
Gavin Kirkland: Cage starts to gain up some momentum. Using Shaker’s hair, Cage pulls him up to his feet and stands him in the middle of the ring. Cage goes to run to the ropes once more; however, on the outside of the ring, Detective Mikayla and Detective Asson are screaming and shouting at Cage. ‘Explicit Content’ stops in his tracks and simply sighs at the Bozo Victims Unit’s attempts to distract him. He looks down to the mat and shakes his head in frustration…
Eve: BEFORE HE CAN GET HIS HEAD BACK IN THE GAME, SHAKER JONES TAKES HIM DOWN TO THE MAT WITH A HEADBUTT! Shaker could gain some control of this affair here! Shaker drags Cage up to his feet and absolutely throws him into the corner. Shaker then swiftly runs at Cage and clobbers him with a running clothesline! Shaker grabs a hold of Cage’s arm and irish whips him into the opposite corner. Shaker charges at Cage once more and hits him with another running clothesline! Shaker points to the outside of the ring and shouts at his Victims Unit to ‘shift out the way and make some room’. They follow his instructions and shift to the side. Shaker turns his attention back to his opponent and pulls him to the middle of the ring. He grabs a hold of him and throws him over the ropes!
Deadprez: BUT WAIT! Cage manages to keep a tight grip on the ropes and prevents himself from falling out the ring. Shaker has no idea! Cage holds onto the ropes and steadily pulls himself up onto the apron. After a while, Shaker turns around in pure shock, he notices that Cage didn’t go flying over the ropes like he thought he did. Shaker shakes his head at Cage and rushes towards him with a clothesline….but Cage gets out of the way and uses the ropes to hit Shaker with an enziguri! Cage then grabs a hold of Shaker by the head and pulls him over the ropes and onto the apron. He stands him up tall but then gets low and drives him spine first into the steel post!
Gavin Kirkland: BUT LOOK! The Bozo Victims are back! The dumbasses stand in front of the apron and try to investigate Cage!
Cage under his breath: For fucks sak-
Gavin Kirkland: BEFORE CAGE CAN FINISH HIS SENTENCE, SHAKER PUSHES CAGE OFF THE APRON TO THE BOZO VICTIMS UNIT! Shaker jumps off the apron and drags Cage up to his feet again…BUT LIKE A LOOSE ANIMAL, CAGE POUNCES ON SHAKER AND UNLEASHES HIS FURY ONTO HIM! SHAKER MANAGES TO CRAWL TO THE VICTIMS UNIT BUT CAGE WASTES NO TIME…..HE ROLLS BACK INTO THE RING AND CHARGES AT THE ROPES…HE REBOUNDS OFF THEM AND FLIES THROUGH THE ROPES AND NAILS SHAKER JONES AND ALL THE DETECTIVES WITH A SUICIDE DIVE! HE THROWS SHAKER BACK INTO THE RING AND COVERS HIM..
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOO-
Eve: Shaker manages to get the shoulders up again! Cage slams the mat in frustration. He sits up and just looks down at Shaker rolling in agony. Cage gets back up to his feet and pulls Shaker up with him. Cage looks down at the depleted Shaker and shakes his head. Cage could be looking to end it all here! HE KICKS SHAKER IN THE GUT AND HOOKS BOTH OF HIS ARMS! CAGE LIFTS SHAKER UP IN THE AIR….
Deadprez: NAH! SHAKER FIGHTS OUT OF IT AND STAYS ON HIS FEET! HE PUSHES CAGE OFF HIM AND NAILS HIM WITH A STRIKE TO THE HEAD, CAGE IS STUNNED! SHAKER CHARGES AT THE ROPES, HE REBOUNDS OFF THEM AND RUNS BACK AT CAGEE……WHIPPPSMASSS- NO! CAGE DUCKS UNDERNEATH THE WHIPSMASH AND SENDS SHAKER TO THE ROPES! BUT SHAKER REBOUNDS OFF THE ROPES AND RUNS BACK AT CAGE…..BUT CAGE CONNECTS WITH A SHATTERING HEADBUTT KNOCKING SHAKER DOWN TO THE MAT!!!
Eve: CAGE IS INFURIATED! HE GRABS A HOLD OF BOTH OF SHAKER’S ARMS AND UNLEASHES ON HIM WITH THE IDIOT STAMPEDE! HE POUNDS AND BASHES SHAKER’S SKULL WITH MULTIPLE INHUMAN AND REMORSELESS CURB STOMPS! SHAKER MIGHT BE OUT COLD FROM THE PURE IMPACT OF THOSE STOMPS!
Deadprez: CAGE CLEARLY AIN’T DONE YET THOUGH! CAGE DRAGS SHAKER UP TO HIS FEET! HE KICKS HIM IN THE GUT AND HOOKS BOTH OF HIS ARMS…..BUT NO! SHAKER GETS OUT ONCE MORE AND STRIKES CAGE ACROSS THE FACE WITH A MASSIVE PUNCH RIGHT INTO HIS JAW! SHAKER HAS THE EDGECRUSHER STUNNED! HE KICKS CAGE IN THE GUT AND GETS HIS HEAD BETWEEN HIS LEGS, SHAKER HOLDS ONTO CAGE’S WAIST AND LEANS FORWARD……CANADIAN DESTROY-
Gavin Kirkland: NO! CAGE FIGHTS OUT AND THROWS SHAKER OFF HIM AND KICKS HIM IN THE GUT! HE HOOKS THE ARMS ONCE MORE AND LIFTS SHAKER JONES INTO THE AIR……MERCY RULE! THE MERCY RULE CONNECTS! SHAKER JONES’ SKULL GOES STRAIGHT INTO THE CANVAS! CAGE DROPS DOWN AND HOOKS THE LEG FOR THE COVER
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOOOOO! THREEEEEEEEEEEE!
(DING!!!! DING!!!! DING!!!!)
(“Smells Like Teen Spirit” By Nirvana hits as Cage shoots up to his feet. The referee raises Cage’s hand and declares him as the victor of this match. The referee then lets go and Cage walks over to the side of the ring, drops down to the mat and slides out of the ring)
Gina Romano: HERE IS YOUR WINNEERRRRRR!! CAGE!!!!!
Eve: A domineering and menacing performance from Cage here in an excellent bout! Shaker Jones tried to use the Bozo Victims Unit to his advantage but his plans backfired and Cage stood tall
Deadprez: That was a statement, Eve. Cage just sent a statement to the rest of the Showdown locker room that this is his show!
(The scene transitions to backstage where Jon Kelton is stretching before his main event match against Consuela Rose Ava. Jon looks to be quite focused, staring off in the distance and going over on his mind on what he needs to do to win the match. Right behind him in a chair, rests his 24/7 contract — which is basically a black contract folder with “24/7” on it where a contract for a future championship match of his choosing.)
(Kathy Kush enters the camera shot with a microphone in her hand.)
Kathy Kush: Jon, I hate to bother you, but I was wondering if I can have a quick interview with you?
Jon Kelton: Sure, what you wanna know?
Kathy Kush: First of all, congratulations on winning the 24/7 Battle Royal at Pain for Pride! It was an amazing performance and now, you get to call yourself “Mr. 24/7!” Since you got the contract now, I think we gotta know what’s the plan that you have in store this season?
Jon Kelton: If there is something that the people on Showdown need to realize, it’s when I say I am going to do something, I am going to do it. One of the biggest examples was Pain for Pride. Another example will be when I cash in this contract and become a champion. Now, what championship am I going to be on a look out for? From the Showdown brand alone, there’s a ton of endless options. Jamie O’Hara is on top of the mountain as the Answers World Champion. We also got Bronson Daniels becoming a huge name as the New Breed Champion and he’s in the perfect position to become a perfect name. There’s even my opponent, Consuela Rose Ava, who has been killing it as the Interwire Championship. I’m keeping an eye on all of these championships. All the champions are going to be on watch because when I do decide to cash in this contract, I’m not going to blow the opportunity.
???: Wow, you’re not going to blow this opportunity. :wow:
(Justin Windgate walks over to the camera shot as Kathy Kush holds the microphone in front of him. Justin has a blunt with him and takes a rip of it before blowing the smoke out. Jon Kelton is trying to keep his composure, but he isn’t a fan of that smoke.)
Jon Kelton: That’s the goal, Justin.
(Justin Windgate looks over to the chair and gets Jon Kelton’s contract before looking at it.)
Justin Windgate: That’s a nice contract you got there. I had the opportunity to win a contract like this at Pain for Pride, but I felt too short of the prize.
Jon Kelton: I can’t relate to that. I see what I want and I do whatever I can to make sure that I get it. Unlike you, whenever I am in these situations, I refuse for my emotions to get the best of me, which happens to be the story of your career since your return. You let that little aggression get the best out of you, Justin and what did it get you? It didn’t get you Cash in the Vault, that’s what I know.
Justin Windgate: You feel like you’re untouchable, Jon. I was on the same boat when I returned to EAW. You think that there’s nothing that can take you down. There are no words that can make you change your mind. It’s a wonderful feeling, but it’s not a feeling that will stay with you forever. It took one huge loss for me to step away from the bright lights and fade into the darkness. Ever since losing the New Breed Championship, it’s been a downhill spiral for me. I wouldn’t have you be too confident, Jon because that is going to happen to you if you’re not careful at all. If you’re not careful, you are going to be left confused on whether you want to accomplish next. Don’t fall down that path, Jon. You fail that 24/7 cash in and you are going down that path.
Jon Kelton: I appreciate the advice, but I got this under control, Justin. I look at you and I see what I need to do to avoid going through that spiral that you’re going through at the moment. One of the biggest things that lead to your downhill spiral is you underestimating your opponents. Another thing would be your emotions and there’s one thing that I gotta ask you: do you have those feelings under control?
Justin Windgate: It seems like that aggression and is my new high, but you won’t know unless you figure it out.
(Justin Windgate takes a rip of his blunt before blowing it towards Jon Kelton’s face.)
Jon Kelton: Is that a challenge?
Justin Windgate: Maybe, maybe not. We’ll have to see.
(Justin Windgate shrugs his shoulders, casually before leaving the camera shot that Jon Kelton is in with him. Justin turns himself around, looking back at Jon.)
Justin Windgate: Oh yeah, good luck with your match against Consuela. If I know a thing or two about these Avas, they will give you hell in the ring.
(Justin Windgate turns away as Jon Kelton looks at the direction that Justin as the scene fades to black.)
( The performance center is filled with mixed reactions as “Last Strike” by Polo G begins to echo through the P.A System. Jon Kelton steps out to the beginning of the stage, housing the same, confident smirk as he moseys down the aisle and into the ring. )
Gina Romano: INTRODUCING FIRST! From Toronto, Ontario, Canada, weighing in at 210 pounds…. JOOONNNNNNNN KELLLTONNNN!!!
Deadprez: After being gone for years from the Elite Answers Wrestling scene, Jon Kelton has surely not lost a single touch or shown any sign of dust since his return. He’s shown that he’s used all that time to work on it and all of that blood, sweat, and tears he’s shed over the years was properly honoured when he won the 24/7 Battle Royale.
Eve: If you ask me, Jon Kelton’s stock is going to be onwards and upwards, and he has another great opportunity to prove himself against the EAW Interwire Champion.
( “We Appreciate Power” by Grimes blasts through the speakers to a thunderous pop and prompts Consuela Rose Ava to walk through the curtain and make her presence known on the entranceway. She holds her EAW Interwire Championship with pride and scans the atmosphere of the performance center before making her way down towards the squared circle. )
Gina Romano: AND HIS OPPONENT! From Frias, Spain, weighing in at 120 pounds…. SHE IS THE EAW INTERWIRE CHAMPION… “THE PERFECTIONIST”, CONNNSUEEEEEEELLLLLAA ROSSSEE AVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVAAAA
Gavin Kirkland: Oh dear… It’s getting hard…
Deadprez: Consuela Rose Ava is fresh off retaining the EAW Interwire Championship in what was her most formidable challenge yet, Terry Chambers, and not only did she walk out with the same championship, she walked out hand-in-hand with the man she defeated. Tonight, she walks into this match stronger and more confident than ever. This is yet another blockade for “The Perfectionist” to knock down and it shouldn’t be any problem for her whatsoever.
( DING! DING! DING! )
Deadprez: This match is officially underway as Jon Kelton and Consuella Rose Ava stand face-to-face in the middle ring. These two are hosting the first Showdown main event of Season 14, and I’m sure they’re looking to make a huge splash as it seems like Kelton is showing a sign of respect as he extends his arm for a handshake?
Eve: Interesting. Not the approach I was expecting from “The Chosen One”. However, it seems Consuela Rose Ava is proceeding and shaking the hand of Kelton? Ava wants the best competition to line up and battle her, and Kelton is the perfect challenge for her. But, these are two unusual approaches from both sides.
Gavin Kirkland: Jon Kelton and Consuela Rose Ava are shaking hands in the middle of the ring! Ava looks to release the shake and go to the corner of the ring, but Kelton refuses to relinquish his grip as Consuela stands still and looks down.
Eve: KELTON PULLS HER IN!! BUT AVA SAW IT COMING! AVA EXPECTED IT AND DUCKED THE CLOTHESLINE!!! “THE PERFECTIONIST” NOW GRABS HIS WRIST AND TWISTS HIM AROUND!! AND CLOCKS THE SIDE OF HIS FACE WITH A WELL-PLACED ROUNDHOUSE KICK!! KELTON’S GAMEPLAN GOT BAMBOOZLED AS HE NOW FALTERS BACKWARDS THROUGH THE ROPES AND OUT OF THE RING.
Deadprez: Jon Kelton intended on immediately putting out the EAW Intewire Champion out of the gates, but Consuela Rose Ava was one step ahead. KELTON HOPS ONTO THE APRON AND ATTEMPTS TO INSERT HIMSELF BACK INTO THE RING. AVA LEAPS INTO THE AIR AND SENDS HIM FLYING OFF THE APRON WITH A PICTURE-PERFECT DROPKICK!! WHAT A DROPKICK AS KELTON IS DOWN AND AVA IS QUICK ON HER FEET!
Eve: CONSUELA ROSE AVA SOARS LIKE A PHOENIX OVER THE TOP ROPE AND THROUGH THE SKIES!! AND PLUNGES ONTO THE BODY OF KELTON WITH A MARVELOUS TOPE CONSUELA HILO!! THAT TOPE CONSUELA HILO THAT’S HELPED CONSUELA STEER HER INTO VICTORY MANY TIMES IN THE PAST!!
Gavin Kirkland: CONSUELA ROSE AVA MAY BE ON THE CUSP OF WINNING THE FIRST EVER MAIN EVENT OF THIS SEASON AS HE SLIDES HIM BACK INTO THE RING!! Ava takes a second for a breather before quickly sliding in! SHE EMERGES TO HER FEET AND GRABS AHOLD OF “THE CHOSEN ONE”!!!
Deadprez: EGO TRIP!!!!! KELTON HOOKED THE ARMS AND DRILLED CONSUELA WITH THE EGO TRIP DDT OUT OF NOWHERE AS NOW HOOKS BOTH LEGS!! KELTON WAS PLAYING POSSUM!! OH MY!!
Eve: CONSUELA POWERS OUT AT TWO!! Jon Kelton almost secured this main event in the bag for himself and I am surefire that Consuela did not expect for Kelton to rise up and snap with the EGO TRIP ddt out of nowhere. Jon Kelton lured her in, but it isn’t enough as you can tell from the look on his face while he was making the cover, he thought it was game over for the EAW Interwire Champion, but it is not!
Deadprez: Jon Kelton must be fuming inside that Consuela was able to survive one of his patented finishing moves, but Kelton must keep moving on with full concentration as Consuela’s rapid-fire offense can take out someone in a heartbeat. Kelton looks for a second time, a charm as he locks both arms and pulls her up… A SECOND EGO TRIP!! NO!! CONSUELLA SNATCHES HIS LEGS, TOPPLES HIM AND FLIPS OVER WITH A BACK-TO-BELLY PIN!
Gavin Kirkland: Damn, imagine Consuela in that position…
Eve: Kelton escapes the pinning predicament as both competitors rise up to their feet. CONSUELA CONNECTS FIRST WITH A FLUSH YAKUZA KICK! Kelton is faltering and Consuela reels into the ropes. KELTON RETALIATES AND CHARGES BACK IN!! CONSUELA USES THE ROPES AS LEVERAGE AND DECKS “THE CHOSEN ONE” WITH A ROPE-ASSISTED ENZIGURI!!
Deadprez: Kelton has fallen down to one knee as it seems like Consuela has regained control of this main event match! SHE BOUNCES OFF THE ROPES AND DASHES INTO JON KELTON!! BUT KELTON EXPLODES OFF THE CANVAS AND ELEVATES CONSUELA HIGH UP INTO THE AIR!! WHAT HEIGHT!! BACK BODY DROP ON CONSUELA!!
Eve: NO!! CONSUELA MANAGES TO FLIP FORWARD ONTO HER FEET AS KELTON CLUELESSLY TURNS AROUND.. CONSUELA LEAPS UP AND CONNECTS WITH A DROPKICK ACROSS THE JAW!! KELTON SCRAMBLES TO THE CORNER AS CONSUELA QUICKLY PUTS MORE GAS ON THE PEDAL AND ADVANCES FAST INTO KELTON!
Gavin Kirkland: NO!! KELTON BLASTS THE BLADE OF HIS ELBOW INTO HER FACE! Evil Kelton is catching a breather as CONSUELA RECOVERS AND CHARGES BACK IN! JONATHAN LEANS DOWN AND LIFTS HER UP!! CONSUELA HOLDS ONTO THE TURNBUCKLES AS KELTON WALKS FORWARD!
Eve: WHAT THE? CONSUELA IS ABLE TO SNATCH HIS HEAD WITH A HEADSCISSORS AS HE PROCEEDS TO SPINS AROUND…. AND TWIST HIM RIGHT INTO A SPIKING FLIP PILEDRIVER!! WHAT A FLIP PILEDRIVER AS CONSUELA NOW REBOUNDS OFF THE ROPES AND GROUNDS HIM OFF HIS KNEES WITH A DEVASTATING PENALTY KICK!! SIDEPRESS COVER!!
Deadprez: KELTON KICKS OUT!! Consuela continues the pace as he floors him with a spinning solebutt kick. Kelton is down-and-out and Ava now steps through the ropes and begins to ascend the turnbuckles. Jon Kelton is about to be on the receiving end of a huge aerial maneuver if he doesn’t roll out of the way!
Eve: KELTON SHOOTS OFF THE GROUND AND DRILLS AVA ON THE TOP TURNBUCKLE WITH A JUMPING FOREARM SMASH! Ava is losing balance on the top turnbuckle! Kelton is back in this match as he climbs the buckles and grabs a handful of “The Perfectionist”. “The Chosen One” now hooking her tights, possible for a brutal superplex?
Gavin Kirklland: KELTON LOSES HIS FOOTING AND IS NOW SUSPENDED FROM THE TURNBUCKLE!!
Deadprez: These competitors are working with limited space when it comes to the turnbuckles and Jon Kelton now knows that first-hand! Kelton is dangling from the top turnbuckle as Ava recalibrates herself! IF AVA IS ABLE TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THIS PRECARIOUS POSITION, THAT COULD BE BALL GAME FOR JON KELTON!!
Eve: BUT KELTON WITH HIS CORE STRENGTH, LIFTS HIMSELF UP AND GRABS HIS HEAD!! AND AVA GOES FLYING FORWARD AND DRIVING INTO THE CANVAS WITH AN OVERHEAD SUPLEX!! KELTON NOW GETS OUT OF THE HUNG POSITION AND BEGINS TO MAKE HIS WAY TO THE TIPPY TOP OF THE TURNBUCKLES!! “THE CHOSEN ONE” IS PERCHED!!
Gavin Kirkland: MOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONNNNSAULLLLLLLL- KELTON SPLASHES RIGHT ONTO HIS CHEST!! AND NOW CONSUELA!! RUNNING KNEE STRIKE… RIGHT ACROSS THE JAW!! HERE WE GO!! LATERAL PRESS!!
Eve: KICK-OUT!! Kelton is able to hoist his shoulder up at two as Consuela now pulls him up to his feet. CONSUELA WITH A SPINNING HEEL KICK TO THE MIDSECTION!! That drives the wind out of Kelton as CONSUELA NOW DASHES TOWARDS THE CORNER AND LEAPS UP THE TURNBUCKLES!!
Deadprez: WAIT!! KELTON FOLLOWS BEHIND AND DETACHES HER OFF THE TURNBUCKLES INTO A CRUCIFIX!!! CONSUELA BEING HOISTED AS SHE’S ABOUT TO BE CRUCIFIED AS KELTON NOW CARRIES HER ACROSS THE RING! “THE CHOSEN ONE” NOW HOISTS HER UP INTO A POWERBOMB-
Gavin Kirkland: CONSUELA ROSE AVA COUNTERS IT INTO A HURRICANRANA! KELTON IS DOWN AS CONSUELA QUICKLY GETS UP TO HER FEET AND VAULTS ONTO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE!! SHE BACKFLIPS AND DESCENDS DOWN FOR A MOONSAULT!!
Eve: KELTON CATCHES CONSUELA IN MID-AIR!! HE HOLDS HER ON HIS SHOULDERS BEFORE SWINGING AVA AROUND!! AVA SNATCHES HIS HEAD AND DRILLS HIM WITH A TORNADO DDT!! HE GOT SPIKED!! SHOULDERS ARE DOWN!!
Deadprez: KELTON POPS HIS SHOULDER UP! Consuela Rose Ava has him in the perfect position as she’s perched on the top turnbuckle! Kelton emerges up to his feet and looks up to the sight of AIR AVA!!! DIVING CROSSBODY!!! NO!! KELTON CATCHES HER AND ROLLS BACKWARDS ONTO HIS FEET!! THE STRENGTH OF “THE CHOSEN ONE” ON DISPLAY HERE AS KELTON HAS HER TRAPPED!
Gavin Kirkland: DAMN!! KELTON HAS A HANDFUL OF HER ASS!! I’M DEFINITELY SCREENSHOTTING THIS ON THE EAW NETWORK LATER.
Eve: KELTON LIFTS HER UP INTO A FIREMAN’S CARRY!! AND HOISTS HER UP!! CONSUELA FLIPS OVER HIS SHOULDERS AND DRILLS HIM WITH THE FLIPPING DOUBLE KNEE BACKBREAKER!! WHAT A COUNTER AS CONSUELA QUICKLY HOVERS OVER FOR THE COVER!!
Deadprez: KICK-OUT!! Consuela began to show signs of frustration as she got up to her feet in the corner. Jon Kelton was devastated by that counter and CONSUELA LOOKS TO END IT!! CONSUELA GOES FOR THE KNEE OF DEATH!! BUT KELTON SIDESTEPS AND SHOVES HER THROUGH THE ROPES!!
Eve: Kelton was able to evade what would’ve been catastrophic to his winning chances as Consuela climbs onto the apron. KELTON CHARGES AND RUNS THROUGH THE ROPES. HE CIRCLES AROUND THE WAIST OF CONSUELA! AND LOOKS FOR A GERMAN SUPLEX OFF THE HARDEST PART OF THE RING!! KELTON LOOKING FOR A RELEASE GERMAN SUPLEX OFF THE APRON, BUT “THE PERFECTIONIST” IS HOLDING ONTO THE ROPES FOR DEAR LIFE!
Gavin Kirkland: KELTON RELEASES THE WAIST HOLD AND GRABS HER HAD INSTEAD!! UH OH!!! ROLLING CUTTER OFF THE APRON AND ONTO THE RINGSIDE FLOOR! BOTH ELITISTS GO CRASHING DOWN ONTO THE RINGSIDE FLOOR!!
Eve: Kelton with a high-risk maneuver that was successful as he brings Consuela back into the ring. Consuela is out cold like a light. Kelton slides into the ring and leaps onto the second rope… HE LEAPS BACKWARDS AND BLASTS DOWN ONTO CONSUELA ROSE AVA WITH A SECOND-ROPE MOONSAULT!! THIS HAS TO BE IT!! BOTH LEGS ARE HOOKED!!
Deadprez: AVA KICKS OUT! Kelton quickly picks her up now and twists her around! KELTON IS ADVANCING FOR A VERTEBREAKER!! HE HOISTS HER UP INTO THE AIR!! NO!! AVA ESCAPES THE VERTEBREAKER HOlD AND DROPS HIM HARD ONTO HIS HEAD WITH A RELEASE GERMAN SUPLEX!!
Gavin Kirkland: THE POWER!!! :heart_eyes:
Eve: KELTON REELS TO THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING AND IT GIVES THE OPPORTUNITY FOR AVA TO RUN THE ROPES!! AND SOAR OVER THE TOP ROPE WITH A TOPE CONSUELLA HILO!! NO!!! KELTON CATCHES HER IN MID AIR!! HOLDS HER UP ONTO HER SHOULDERS!! AND DISPATCHES HER INTO THE PLEXIGLASS WALL WITH A POWERBOMB!!
Gavin Kirkland: KELTON WITH A GAME CHANGING COUNTER AS HE NOW GETS HER BACK INTO THE RING!! HE STEPS THROUGH THE ROPES AND GOES OVER FOR THE BACKPRESS COVER!!! SHOULDERS ARE DOWN!!
Gavin Kirkland: KICK-OUT!! Kelton can’t believe it! “The Chosen One” is shocked and so am I! He grabs Ava’s wrist and pulls her up. HE HOOKS THE ARM AND STANDS TALL!! HE’S LOOKING FOR THE STANDING SPANISH FLY! HE JUMPS AND FLIPS BACKWARDS!
Eve: KELTON FLIPPED BUT AVA GOT OUT AT THE LAST SECOND!! KELTON IS ABLE TO LAND SAFELY ONTO HIS FEET, BUT AVA EXPLODES OUT OF THE CANVAS AND TURNS HIM INSIDE OUT WITH A DISCUS LARIAT!! KELTON WAS FOLDED LIKE AN ACCORDIAN!! CONSUELA NOW REBOUNDS OFF THE ROPES AND HOLDS HIM FROM BEHIND!!
Deadprez: “THE PERFECTIONIST” NOW ELEVATES HIM INTO AN ELECTRIC CHAIR POSITION! THE LEMON PLEDGE!! NO!! KELTON DROPS DOWN AND GRABS THE HEAD!! THE ROLLING CUTTER AGAIN!! NO!! CONSUELA SHRUGS HIM OFF AND EVADES IT!! KELTON BOOMERANGS AND CONSUMES A ROUNDHOUSE KICK TO THE MUSHER!!
Eve: KELTON IS STAGGERED!! HE’S TOTTERING!! CONSUELA NOW QUICKLY RUNS AND REBOUNDS OFF THE CORNER TURNBUCKLES!! HE SPRINTS INTO KELTON!! LA RODILLA DE LA MUERTEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! KELTON DROPS DOWN, GRABS HIS TIGHTS AND PULLS HIM DOWN!! KELTON WITH A SCHOOL-BOY!!
Gavin Kirkand: KICK-OUT!! KELTON SHOWING OFF THAT BUBBLE BUTT OF CONSUELA AS BOTH INDIVIDUALS GET UP TO THEIR FEET!! KELTON ADVANCES FOR A FOREARM SMASH!! CONSUELA BLOCKS THE ATTEMPT AND NAILS KELTON WITH A JUMPING BICYCLE KICK!! RIGHT ON THE BULLSEYE THE BICYCLE KICK WENT AS CONSUELA SCREAMS AND CHARGES BACK INTO THE CORNER TURNBUCKLES!!
Eve: BUT KELTON RUSHES IN FROM BEHIND AS SHE TURNS AROUND!! DROPKICK INTO THE CORNER!! CONSUELA IS COMPRESSED INTO THE CORNER WITH A DROPKICK BY “THE CHOSEN ONE”. KELTON WITH A DEVASTATING DROPKICK AS HE NOW RUNS INTO THE ROPES!!
Deadprez: CONSUELA COMES OUT OF THE CORNER AND INTERCEPTS KELTON’S SPRINT!! AND FLIPS HIM OVER WITH A SPANISH FLY!! WHAT A RUNNING STANDING SPANISH FLY COUNTER AS CONSUELA QUICKLY GOES FOR THE LATERAL PRESS!! THIS COULD BE IT!!
Eve: KICK-OUT!!! KELTON POWERS OUT AT THE LAST NANO SECOND AS CONSUELA IS IN THE FACE OF THE REFEREE! Consuela Rose Ava can’t believe the experienced Jon Kelton was able to survive that withering spanish fly counter and she’s checking with the referee for reassurance! Consuela needs to keep her head in the game!
Gavin Kirkand: More like she needs to get down on her knees and give me hea-
Deadprez: FOREARM SMASH FROM KELTON!! Ava helped Kelton up, which might’ve been a bad decision as Kelton somehow still possesses the strength to defend himself! Ava is slightly affected by the forearm as she goes in! KELTON WITH ANOTHER FOREARM SMASH!! AND THIS TIME IT STAGGERS THE EAW INTERWIRE CHAMPION!!
Eve: AVA COMES OFF THE ROPES!! KELTON JUMPS UP AND CONNECTS WITH A JUMPING FOREARM SMASH!! THAT GROUNDS AVA AS I DON’T KNOW WHERE THE HELL “THE CHOSEN ONE” IS FINDING THIS ENERGY!?!? KELTON QUICKLY GETS AHOLD OF HER AND GRABS BOTH WRISTS… HE TWISTS THE INTERWIRE CHAMP AROUND….
Gavin Kirkland: POETIC JUSTICE?!??!
Deadprez: NO!! AVA EVADES THE VERTEBREAKER ONCE AGAIN AND LEAPS ONTO THE BACK OF KELTON’S NECK!! AND SPIKES THE BACK OF HIS HEAD WITH AN INVERTED FRANKENSTEINER!! ABSOLUTELY DEVASTATING!! BUT LOOK!! KELTON REBOUNDS OFF THE ROPES AND WALKS INTO AVA FROM BEHIND!!
Eve: SPOIIIILLLERRR ALLERRTTT! THE FULL NELSON LEGSWEEP FACEBUSTER CONNECTS AS KELTON ISN’T MOVING!! KELTON WAS ABLE TO GET THE SPOILER ALERT IN BY INSTINCT RIGHT AFTER THAT BRUTALIZING INVERTED FRANKENSTEINER!! HOW HE WAS ABLE TO DO THAT IS BEYOND ME!!
Gavin Kirkland: Damn, this guy is legit. Might have to invest in more dark chocolate men.
Deadprez: But, he’s not cashing in when it matters most! Kelton has not moved after connecting with Spoiler Alert and it was clearly a last ditch maneuver! Consuela Rose Ava has rolled to the other side of the ring, probably clueless on what just transpired. Both individuals are on the cusp of collapsing, but they must continue until the end!
Eve: AVA CHARGES IN FIRST!! FLUSH SUPERKICK!! NO!! KELTON GRABS HER FOOT AND SPINS HER AROUND!! HE SHOOTS THE HALF AND LOCKS BOTH OF THE ARMS!! OH NO!! THE EGO TRIP!! NO!! AVA ESCAPES OUT OF THE DOUBLE UNDERHOOK AND HOISTS HIM UP INTO A FIREMAN’S CARRY!!
Deadprez: KELTON ESCAPES OUT OF THE FIREMAN’S CARRY! KELTON SWINGS FORWARD FOR A CLOTHESLINE!! AVA DUCKS THE CLOTHESLINE AND COMES OFF THE ROPES!! KELTON CATCHES HER AS SHE WHIRLS AROUND!! AND DRILLS HIM WITH A TILT-A-WHIRL BACKSTABBER!! WHAT A BACKSTABBER!!!
Eve: WHAT A BACKSTABBER INDEED!! KELTON IS DONE FOR AS CONSUELA LOOKS TO PUT THE FINISHING TOUCHES ON THIS MAIN EVENT!! KELTON IS JUST BARELLY ABLE TO STAND UP AS CONSUELA CHARGES IN FROM THE CORNER!! LA RODILLLAA DE LA MUERTTEEE!!! KELTON GETS DEMOLISHED BY THE KNEE OF DEATH AS CONSUELA CRAWLS OVER FOR THE WIN!! THE CHAMPION WINS!!
Deadprez: KELTON GETS HIS LEFT FOOT UP ON THE BOTTOM ROPE!! CONSUELA CAN’T BELIEVE IT!! CONSUELA IS APOPLECTIC AS SHE QUICKLY GRABS A HOLD OF KELTON! KELTON PUSHES HER AWAy AND KICKS THE MIDSECTION!! OH NO!! HE HOOKS BOTH ARMS! HE GOES FOR THE EGO TRIP!!
Eve: NO!! CONSUELA PUSHES HIM INTO THE CORNER!! CONSUELA THRUSTS KELTON INTO THE CORNER, BUT KELTON REMAINS TO HAVE THE DOUBLE UNDERHOOK LOCKED IN!! KELTON NOW STEPS OFF THE MIDDLE TURNBUCKLE WHAT THE…
Gavin Kirkland: OH MY!!
Deadprez: TORNADO EGO TRIP!! A TORNADO VARIATION OF THE DOUBLE UNDERHOOK DDT CONNECTS!! CONSUELA OUT!!! COUNT TO ONE THOUSAND!!! COVER!!

Gavin Kirkland: BUT HE MANAGES TO ESCAPE OUT OF THE LOCK!! CONSUELA’S HOLD WAS TOO WEAK AS KELTON WIGGLED OUT OF IT AND COMES OFF THE ROPES!! AND CLOCKS HER CLEAN WITH A SUPERKICK!! A SUPERKICK OUT OF THIN AIR AS CONSUELA FALTERS iNTO THE ROPES!!
Eve: KELTON RUNS INTO HER!! CONSUELA LIFTS HER UP!! SHE TURNS AROUND AND GETS MET WITH A ROPE-ASSISTED ENZIGURI!! SHE BACKS OFF INTO THE CORNER AS CONSUELA IS COMPLETELY TIRED!! SHE GINGERLY GETS UP TO HER FEET AS KELTON LEAPS ONTO THE TOP ROPE!! AND SPRINGS OFF!!! WITH A SPRINGBOARD CLOTHESLINE!!
Deadprez: CONSUELA GRABS HIS ARM IN MID-AIR AND CATCHES HIM INTO THE SUELA LOCK!! THE SUELA LOCK IS APPLIED! KELTON IS STUCK IN THE CENTER OF THE RING!! KELTON WAS ABLE TO ESCAPE EASILY OUT OF THE SUELA LOCK A FEW MOMENTS AGO, BUT CONSUELA LEARNED FROM IT AND HAS IT LOCKED IN ASTRONOMICALLY TIGHTER!!
Gavin Kirkland: KELTON IS DIGGING HER NAILS INTO HER THIGHS!! KELTON IS TRYING TO BOTH RELIEVE THE PAIN AND SOFTEN IT AT THE SAME TIME, BUT I DONT THINK AVA WILL GIVE UP THIS TIME AROUND!
Eve: Jon Kelton has sustained extreme amounts of damage throughout this match and this Suela Lock is adding insult to injury to all of it! KELTON NOW IS MAKING HIS WAY THROUGH THE CANVAS AND TOWARDS THE BOTTOM ROPE!! “THE CHOSEN ONE” IS LOOKING TO DEPEND ON THE ROPE BREAK TWICE IN THIS MATCH AS CONSUELA CONTINUES TO TIGHTEN THIS!!
Deadprez: KELTON IS FINGERTIPS AWAY FROM THE ROPES!! SUELA IS SHOWING NO CONCERN AS KELTON IS SO CLOSE!! HE IS ON THE CUSP OF GETTING OUT, BUT HE IS ALSO ON THE BRINK OF SUBMITTING!! KELTON DOES ONE BIG DIG THROUGH THE CANVAS TO GET HIMSELF CLOSER!!
Eve: BUT KELTON RANDOMLY STOPS MOVING!! “THE CHOSEN ONE” IS DOWN-AND-OUT AS CONSUELA CONTINUES TO CINCH IN THE SUELA LOCK!! KELTON NEEDS TO WAKE BACK UP NOW OR HE’S DONE!! THIS IS NOT LOOKING GOOD FOR HIM AS THIS IS A VERY IMPORTANT MATCH!! WHOEVER WALKS OUT OF TONIGHT IS THE WINNER OF THE FIRST EVER SHOWDOWN MAIN EVENT OF THIS SEASON!! AND THAT’S INCREDIBLE BRAGGING RIGHTS FOR WHOEVER WALKS OUT WITH THE MONIKER!!
Gavin Kirkland: This is the battle of the 24/7 Battle Royale crown holder and the reigning EAW Intewire Queen! No way Kelton can continue now!!
Deadprez: KELTON LIFTS HIS OWN ARM UP AND THROWS IT INTO THE ROPE!! BUT IT ISN’T ENOUGH!! KELTON IS LITERALLY A FINGERNAIL AWAY FROM THE ROPE, BUT I DON’T THINK HE POSSESSES THE CURRENT ENERGY TO MUSTER HIMSELF TO THE BOTTOM ROPE….. “THE CHOSEN ONE” DIGS THROUGH THE SURFACE ONCE AGAIN!! AND THROWS HIS ARM INTO THE ROPES!! HERE HE GO!
Eve: HIS ARMS DROPS AND KELTON STOPS MOVING!! OH NO!!
( The referee moves over to lift his arm up. He lifts it up and drops it. He doesn’t keep it up. )
Deadprez: “THE CHOSEN ONE”, JON KELTON UNRESPONSIVE ON THE FIRST TEST!!
Gavin Kirkland: The official is attempting the second test!
( The referee grapples his wrist and lifts it up once again for the second time. He drops it. )
Deadprez: WILL HE KEEP IT UP??
( DING! DING! DING! )
( “We Appreciate Power” by Grimes blasts through to the speakers to an earth-shattering pop. Consuela Rose Ava immediately lets go of Jon Kelton and is handed her EAW Interwire Championship as she gingerly rolls over to the bottom rope. )
Gina Romano: HERE IS YOUR WINNER…. BY SUBMISSION! CONSUELA ROSE…. AVAAA!!!!!
Deadprez: Our EAW Interwire Champion walked out of tonight with a victory over Jon Kelton, and the first ever main event victor of Season 14. Consuela Rose Ava has effortlessly proven that she is a mainstay competitor here in Elite Answers Wrestling, and that EAW Interwire Championship is a token of that.
Eve: Jon Kelton still has a lot of stuff to prove here in this competitive climate, but he proved how much of a formidable force he is against anyone and everyone who steps in his way. Jon Kelton is a person to pay attention to and if you’re a champion, you better have your eyes glued on him.
(One final commercial break.)
(‘Kashmir’ by Led Zeppelin [Paratus Intro] hits as the fans erupt in applause. After a brief moment, Jamie O’Hara slowly emerges onto the stage with the Answers World Championship draped over his shoulder. A wide grin on his face impossible to wipe off beams brightly as he pauses at the top of the stage for a moment before making his way to the ring.)
Giana Romano: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN PLEASE WELCOME…THE NEEEEEWWWWW ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION!!! THE ACE OF ELITE ANSWERS WRESTLING!!!! JAMIE!! OOOOOOOOOOO’HAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!
Deadprez: It was–
Gavin Kirkland: THE ACE IS STILL HERE ON SHOWDOWN THANK THE HEAVENS! I CAN’T CONTAIN MYSELF, I DON’T KNOW WHAT I WOULD HAVE DONE IF I DIDN’T HAVE MY WEEKLY DOSE OF JAMIE O’HARA AND HIS ABS ON THIS SHOW. ACE FOREVER, SHOWDOWN FOREVER, VOLTAGE AND DYNASTY NEVER. HE’S NEVER GOING TO LEAVE US!
Deadprez: As I was saying, It was a war to end all wars at Pain For Pride; one of the most highly anticipated matches of not just of the last six years but ever. Two years, two very long years of pain and suffering, two years of victory and defeat, personal battle lines crossed and lives changed perhaps forever, but it was Jamie O’Hara – as perhaps it could have only ever been – who stood tall at the end of the most remarkable and memorable Pain For Pride events that I can remember.
Eve: And then he backed it up with winning the Champions Showcase last week at the draft! Establishing himself or even reaffirming himself as the best there is in Elite Answers Wrestling today. That war you mentioned was one that I don’t think any of us will forget, Deadprez. For all the harrowing moments we witnessed it was beautiful conclusion where there wasn’t a dry eye in the stadium at all.
(As Jamie settles in the middle of the ring, he pulls the Answers World Championship from his shoulder and hoists it into the air. In an instant, an explosion of streamers fly over the ring covering him from head to toe and stretching into the crowd who erupt in cheers once more. After a moment, ring crew pull most of the streamers away as “Kashmir” dies down)
Jamie O’Hara: Calling the last two years of my life – inside and outside this ring – a rollercoaster would be understatement. At times I’ve been riding highs that I had never thought were possible even with the success I’ve had in my careers and in equal parts, I’ve sunken to lows that I thought were unfathomable; I fought for my family and I fought against my family. I would be lying if I said I didn’t want to quit, I’d be lying if I said I didn’t think about giving up at any point, that some of those setbacks were the toughest to overcome. The last some six weeks have been the culmination of everything. Two years of pain and suffering, two years of heartache. I invested everything I had and everything that I had been, the totality of my career and my being, into winning that one match. Not just for my own sake, but so that the struggles of my family wouldn’t have been for nothing, nor my wife’s own pain. I’ve never felt more drained emotionally and physically as I have been feeling this last week and even now I still feel a long way off that best…but DAMN does it feel fucking great to be the World Champion once again!
(The crowd erupts in applause)
Jamie O’Hara: I walked into Pain For Pride willing to risk everything and I walked out of Philadelphia WITH EVERYTHING IN MY HANDS! I didn’t just simply beat Mr. DEDEDE, I bludgeoned him into defeat. Every drop of blood, every bitter tear, every salty bead of sweat throughout all of this was justified the moment that bell rang. I won the fucking war and I stand here now as not just the Answers World Champion, but the Ace of this company – it’s crown jewel, the absolute BEST there is today; unrivalled and unmeasured. There’s a real mythological story about the Ace, isn’t there? Three hundred plus days as Champion, defeating each and every legitimate challenger to the title with ease, not losing in close to a whole year. A lot of people doubted whether or not Jamie O’Hara was ever the Ace to begin with, let alone rising to that tale, rising to the apparent standard that existed last time. Doubt no more and doubt nothing as standing here on top, after what I just did not just two weeks ago, but last week in defeating two brilliant World Champions in their own right. This is a new season though. A new season where people find new homes, new challengers emerge and old ones try to reignite themselves so I guess the message might just get a little lost somewhere along the way; allow me to make it clear. If you want to remain doubtful, then stand up and test yourself.
(Jamie pauses for a moment, a grin cracking on his face)
Jamie O’Hara: Stand up and try to prove me wrong. Stand up and try to beat me. Because this title…this title will be no different to the last time. This title will remain around my waist longer than you could ever imagine. The Ace has returned to the pedestal he once stood on, the Ace has returned and so too has everything that you came to loathe. I don’t care if you’re a name of old, I don’t care if you’re a rising star. I don’t care if you’re a veteran, I don’t care if you’re bound for greatness. Man, woman, DDD’s whore, none of it matters because this Championship? This Championship remains around my waist, over my shoulder, in the palm of my hands defense after defense after defense and I will remind you all just where you each and every one of you stand in my world; BENEATH ME–
(“BxMxC” by BABYMETAL airs over the performance center as the crowd rises to their feet. Jamie drops the microphone by his side with a smile, nodding his head as Jack Ripley walks onto the stage with a confident smile on his face. Jack pauses for a moment, playing up to the fans in the venue before making his way down to the ring)
(Once Jack enters the ring, he stands across from Jamie, looking him up and down before his eyes rolling over to the Answers World Championship before shakes his head)
Jack Ripley: Beneath you, huh? You know what, that may be the case. You’re Jamie O’Hara after all, the man who defeated Mr. DEDEDE at Pain For Pride of all places and now the Answers World Champion! Of course everyone is beneath you, that’s the way it works isn’t it?
Jamie O’Hara: You got a point, Jack?
Jack Ripley: Yeah, I do actually. No matter how great you may think you are or how great you may actually be, you can and will be defeated. I don’t doubt whether or not you’re the Ace and I don’t doubt whether or not you’re going to remain on top for a long time, but I do doubt that you can’t be beaten. And ever since I came back to this company I’ve been winning match after match after match and I defeated Charlie Marr in one of the most intense matches of my career. I might have come up just short at Pain For Pride in the Cash In The Vault match but I know without any doubt that there is no reason to not believe that I can take the next step forward and become the Answers World Champion! I’m glad though that I ended up here on Showdown, there’s simply nobody else that I want to prove that point against than you, the best there is.
(Jack takes a step closer as the crowd roars with approval over the idea of Jamie O’Hara vs Jack Ripley. Greatly impressed by Jack, Jamie applauses him before motioning him to continue)
Jamie O’Hara (no mic): Oh go on then.
Jack Ripley: I don’t know who I have to beat next, this is Season 14 of Showdown after all with new challengers just as hungry as I am to face you but I WILL be your first challenger and I will be your LAST challenger. Because the last thing that I doubt is myself. The last thing that I doubt in any way is my own potential. You may look down on everyone because they’re not as accomplished as you are, or that they haven’t had the big moments, the big victories like you have or some other unreasonable expectation, but I promise it will be the biggest mistake of your career if you don’t think I can snatch that title away from you in an instant. Whether it’s next week, the following week, or hell, at Midsummer Massacre even, I will make it clear that this season and until the very end that Jack Ripley deserves to stand toe to toe with the very best at the top of any roster. This is my time to shine and I won’t be denied.
Jamie O’Hara: I admire the tenacity and the boldness to be the first person to come out here and make a challenge. But like I said Jack, stand up and try to prove me wrong. Fight through whatever opponent you have to fight through in order to get to me, stand across from me whenever you can and I’ll make you a prime example of what this season will be like for everyone who wishes to follow your path. I don’t think there’s any reason to think of you as anything less than a viable, legitimate contender to this title, even if you missed your opportunity to win the Cash In The Vault match at Pain For Pride and all but guarantee beating me. Understand this though, I’m not Charlie Marr. Understand that I’m not like anyone you faced leading into and at Pain For Pride. Ever since you’ve returned, you have been on a grand roll…but understand that many men have had momentum on their side only for it all to be crushed beneath my boot. You will be no different.
(Jamie takes a few steps forward and stands just off to Jack’s right, his eyes looking away as Jack stares back at Jamie with intent)
Jamie O’Hara: And understand, that when you finally manage to come at the Ace, let me make this very, very clear: you best not miss.
(“Kashmir” by Led Zeppelin hits as Jamie O’Hara brushes past Jack Ripley and enters the ring. With his back remaining turned, Jamie makes his way up the ramp as Jack looks back eager to someday challenge Jamie for the title.)
Eve: The Straight Shooter has his sight set and barrel pointed in the direction of the Answers World Champion and Jamie O’Hara is more than ready, more than willing to take the best shot that Jack Ripley has to give.
Deadprez: I’ve got no doubt that before we see it, Jack Ripley is going to have to overcome some considerable competition. Showdown left the 2020 Draft last week with an amazing roster full of contenders to face Jamie O’Hara; Jack might have been the first out here to make his intentions known, but I have zero doubt we have a locker room in the back there filled with Elitists who are just as eager for their chance.
Gavin Kirkland: AND NONE OF THEM ARE GOING TO TAKE THE TITLE AWAY FROM THOSE BEAUTIFUL GOLDEN ABS :drool: NOT JACK, NOT ANYONE ELSE!
(Jamie turns back and raises the title in the air at Jack, who remains standing in the ring with a cocked grin on his face before the camera fades to black.)
