(EAW intro plays.)
(PREVIOUSLY RECORDED — LAST WEEK ON SHOWDOWN.)
(The scene fades into Cage in the trainer’s room as he suffered a defeat by the hands of Lucas Johnson. It’s safe to say that these past few weeks haven’t looked good for Cage. He loses cleanly to Dr. Bethany Blue on the Showdown before Midsummer Massacre. Then, he found himself being pinned by Lethal Consequences as he now has the opportunity to challenge for the Answers World Championship. What occurred tonight, may have been the one thing that crossed the line and that was losing to Lucas Johnson out of all people. He had no idea what was going on with him, but he needed to get his shit sorted out or he’s going to find himself in a hole that will be more than impossible to get out of. Cage is frustrated as a medical personnel hands him an ice pack to ice one of his shoulders. Kyra Phillips walks into the camera shot with a microphone in her hand, intending to get a few words from Cage.)
Kyra Phillips: Cage, I just wanted to get your word on —
(Cage cuts her off.)
Cage: On what happened out there? Are you blind, Kyra? I just lost to EAW’s resident fool and I’m not talking about Ronan Malosi. Are you telling me that LUCAS JOHNSON holds a victory over me? Is that supposed to be some determining factor that I ‘lost my touch’ or that I’m not the most intimidating motherfucker on this brand? Fuck no, I am still the most intimidating man on this brand and company. I had that whore Bethany back away from me when she made one wrong move on me at Midsummer Massacre. I had Jake Smith shitting his pants when he realized that pulling the referee out of the ring when I was just moments away from winning that fatal-4-way and going onto facing Jamie O’Hara for the Answers World Championship. Now, I gotta watch some bum from Dynasty take MY opportunity at the Answers World Championship? This is a fucking joke and you expect for me to smile, nod and pretend that I’m more than happy to be on this brand? I don’t come to Showdown to be another good solider, just hoping that I get my opportunity. No, I make my own opportunities. That loss last week was fucking insulting to the man who reigned as World Champion two years prior. Lucas Johnson got me in a bad day, but that’s the last time that Lucas Johnson is going to do anything notable in this company. Lucas can bask in his cute, little, victory over me. But, the next time that we cross paths? I am going to beat the shit out of this bitch, he won’t be able to move again.
???: That fire!
(Ryan Wilson walks into the trainer’s room with a huge grin on his face.)
Ryan Wilson: That is the fire that Team Wilson needs at Territorial Invasion. Cage, I need someone a little unpredictable and unhinged. I need someone who isn’t afraid to swing for the fences when it comes to beating the living hell of their opponents. That person is you, Cage. I respect the competitor you are. Side with me, help me defeat Team Malosi and I will make sure that you’re rewarded for your contribution to my team.
(Ryan Wilson pulls out a customary “Team Wilson” shirt in the Showdown font and logo from the back of his pocket and extends it to Cage. Cage takes the shirt from Ryan as he looks at it. Not a single word from him.)
Ryan Wilson: Just think about it. I hope to have an answer from you soon. You know where to find me.
(Ryan Wilson leaves the trainer’s room as the last shot is of Cage holding up the “Team Wilson” t-shirt, unclear on what he wants to do with the shirt.)
(RECAP: A small recap of last week’s Showdown plays. Highlights of Ryan Wilson announcing Xavier Williams as the War Games team captain for Team Showdown. Jack Ripley getting interviewed following his loss against Jamie O’Hara at Midsummer Massacre. Xavier approaches Jack and offers him a spot on Team Showdown, which he accepts. We see the Ronan Malosi segment with him celebrating his victory against Ryan Wilson at Midsummer Massacre. Ryan comes out and assures him that his issues with Ronan are far from over. The two men bicker and Ronan calms that he would be a better General Manager than Ryan. Ryan throws down the match with both men picking four other Elitists to be part of their teams. The winning team’s captain will be General Manager of Showdown.)
(‘Uncontainable’ by Set It Off plays, cueing the music for Saturday Night Showdown. The socially distanced crowd is heard cheering from the EAW Performance Center. It goes straight to Gina Romano in the middle of the ring.)
Gina Romano: The following contest is scheduled for ONE FALL!!!
(Mild pop from the socially distanced crowd.)
Gina Romano: Introducing first…from Jacksonville, Florida…weighing in at two-hundred and sixty pounds…HE IS…THE WOOOOOGIEEEEMAAAAAANNNN!!!
(Loud pop from the crowd as ‘If Ya Smell’ by Adam Massacre explodes through the arena.)
(The Woogieman steps out from the back and stops at the top of the entrance ramp, looking out onto the crowd.)
(The Woogieman stands still for a moment, before walking down to the ring. He walks up the steps, ducking through the second rope and quickly pops up onto the closest turnbuckle…looking out onto the crowd.)
(His music stops and he instantly glares at the entrance.)
Gina Romano: And his opponent…
(‘Young and Bitter’ by Hot Tag Media fills the arena.)
Gina Romano: …standing at one-hundred and ninety seven pounds…from Long Island, New York…being accompanied to the ring by his manager Albert Hitchman…THE BLUEPRINT…LUCAS JOOOOOOOOOOOHNNNNNNNNNSSSSSSOOOOOOONNNN!!!
Eve: Hello folks! Welcome to Saturday Night Showdown! I am Eve and right away, we’re opening with our first match of the night!!!
Gavin Kirkland: Lucas Johnson has been on a role! He won at Midsummer Massacre! He won against a former World Champion in Cage! Now, he takes on the Big Boogie Bhampion, The Woogieman! I think this is where Lucas’ winning streak may be in trouble. :lupe:
(Lucas steps out of the back, followed closely behind by Albert Hitchman. A fresh set of stitches can be seen in Albert’s forehead after Cage busted him open on last week’s Showdown.)
Deadprez: Albert still sporting some physical damage from last week’s Main Event. But in the end, Lucas pulled off the upset over the Hall of Famer Cage, earning himself on hell of a Showdown victory.
(Lucas has a new pair of headphones on, but his focus is directly on The Woogieman who is still standing on the turnbuckle.)
Gavin Kirkland: Both Lucas and Albert are slowly making their way down to the ring and The Woogieman looks ready for a fight as he is keeping his gaze locked on The Wrestling Machine.
(Lucas slides into the ring under the bottom rope, as The Woogieman turns and sits down on the top turnbuckle. Lucas up to his feet, quickly taking off his Beets by Dre headphones and tossing them over the ropes to Albert who cautiously waits on the outside.)
Eve: The ref is over talking to The Woogieman, who is shaking his head no about something. The ref seems to have given up and turns towards us…
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Deadprez: Lucas charges Woogieman, who is STILL sitting on that turnbuckle. He jumps up onto the ropes…JUMPS ONTO WOOGIE…NO! THE WOOGIEMAN GRABS LUCAS IN MID-AIR…JUMPS OFF THE SECOND ROPE…SPINS…SAMOAN DROP BY THE WOOGIEMAN!!! Woogie with the quick cover.
Gavin Kirkland: Lucas with the quick kick out! Did THe Woogieman really think he could end Lucas that quickly? The man withstood Cage last week…a samoan drop will NOT put this man down.
Eve: The Woogieman up to his feet…AND LUCAS FLIPS UP ONTO HIS! The Woogieman grabs Lucas, whips him towards the ropes…no! Lucas reverses it! The Woogieman bounces off the ropes and comes flying back with a clothesline…but Lucas ducks it! The former Big Boogie Bhampion bounces off the opposite ropes and comes flying back at Lucas. BUT THE FORMER YOUNG LIONS CUP WINNER HOPS ONTO THE ROPES…AND DOES A MOONSAULT OVER THE WOOGIEMAN…ONTO HIS FEET!!! The Woogieman turns around… Lucas runs to the side, jumps…propels himself backwards off the top rope…SHINING WIZARD TO THE FACE OF THE WOOGIEMAN!!!
Deadprez: Woogie stumbles back, dropping to one knee. Lucas quickly runs up to him…HUGE kick to the still bent knee of Woogieman and the Woog drops to both knees! Lucas backs up…charges The Woogieman…jumps…LEG DROP ONTO THE BACK OF WOOGIE’S NECK!!! Lucas Johnson quickly back to his feet and looks down at The Woogieman!
Gavin Kirkland: Lucas is measuring up The Woogieman. He runs to the ropes…bounces off of them…comes flying back…jumps up onto the second rope…MOONSAULT!!! BUT THE WOOGIEMAN JUMPS UP AND GRABS HIM IN MID-AIR…HUGE POWERSLAM IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING!!! Woogie’s got a little more than sixty pounds on Lucas here, so I’m sure the former New Breed Champion is feeling it.
Deadprez: THe Woogieman hooks the leg and is going for a pin again.
Eve: And kick out by Lucas Johnson! The Woogieman is showing off his legend status here and it sounds like the fans are loving it!
CROWD: WOO-GIE! WOO-GIE! WOO-GIE!
Gavin Kirkland: The Woogieman is up to his feet, basking in the cheers for himself. He has his hands in the air, motioning for them to keep cheering his name! Look at that smile on his face!
Albert Hitchman (Off mic): QUIT YOUR SHOWBOATING AND FOCUS ON THE MATCH, DIPSHIT!!!
Deadprez: The Woogieman drops his arms and turns his attention to Albert. He flinches at Albert…AND ALBERT DROPS TO THE GROUND, COVERING THE STITCHES IN HIS FOREHEAD!!! HA!!!
Eve: Seems he still has a little bit of PTSD after last week.
Gavin Kirkland: The Woogieman turns around…and Lucas is up on his feet…a look of anger on his face. The Woogieman charges him…Lucas side steps, but grabs him from behind…SKULL CRUSHING FINALE!!! Lucas up to his feet…GO FOR THE PIN!!!
Deadprez: Lucas slides to the outside…and helps Albert back up to his feet.
Lucas Johnson (Off mic): Are you okay?
Ref (Off mic): ONE!!!
Albert Hitchman (Off mic): Yes, get back in the ring!
Lucas Johnson (Off mic): You didn’t bust open your stitches, did you?
Eve: Lucas seems to be making sure his Manager is okay.
Albert Hitchman (Off mic): GET IN THE RING! NOW!
Eve: Lucas turns and runs back to the apron.
Eve: He slides in under the bottom rope and gets to his feet…just as The Woogieman gets up onto his own legs. The Woogieman charges Lucas…CLOTHESLINE!!! BUT LUCAS BENDS BACKWARDS…using The Woogieman’s extra five inch height advantage as his own. The Woogieman turns around…SUPERKICK BY LUCAS JOHNSON!!! The Woogieman stumbles back into the ropes…Lucas runs at Woogie, slides under his legs…and to the apron. Lucas quick to his feet….AND HE GRABS THE WOOGIEMAN FROM BEHIND…HOOKING HIS LEGS THROUGH THE ROPES AND LATCHING ON A REAR NAKED CHOKEHOLD!!!
Deadprez: The ref isn’t going to let this last long.
Gavin Kirkland: Lucas is wrenching back with his arms, bending The Woogieman over the top of the ropes!
Ref (Off mic): Come on, Lucas…let go!
Gavin Kirkland: Lucas FINALLY lets go with his legs, putting his feet down one by one on the apron. Lucas lets go of The Woogieman…who stumbles forward grabbing at his throat. Lucas Johnson grabs the rope, leans back…catapults himself onto the rope…HE JUMPS…LANDS ON WOOGIE’S SHOULDERS AND HITS HIM WITH A HUGE HURRICANRANA!!! Lucas with the quick hook of the leg!!!
Eve: NO! KICKOUT BY THE WOOGIEMAN!!! Lucas quick to his feet, rubbing his forehead in thought as he looks down at Woogieman who is still laying on his back. Lucas looks out to the crowd.
CROWD: WOO-GIE-MAN! WOO-GIE-MAN! WOO-GIE-MAN!
Lucas Johnson (Off mic): SHUT UP!!!
Deadprez: Lucas runs over to the corner and climbs up onto the second rope…looking out onto the crowd.
Albert Hitchmen (Off Mic): HIT IT AND GET THIS OVER WITH!!! IGNORE THEM!!!
CROWD: WOO-GIE-MAN! WOO-GIE-MAN! WOO-GIE-MAN!
Gavin Kirkland: Lucas positions himself up on the top rope…stands up straight…HA! He just flipped off all the fans cheering for The Woogieman! He jumps…RED ARROW!!! RED ARROW!!!
Gavin Kirkland: THE WOOGIEMAN MOVED AT THE LAST MOMENT AND LUCAS JOHNSON JUST SLAMMED FACE FIRST INTO THE CANVAS!!! LUCAS IS KICKING HIS FEET AND WRITHING IN PAIN!!!
Deadprez: The Woogieman up onto his knees, looking over at the perceived injured Lucas Johnson.
Albert Hitchman (Off mic): GET UP, LUCAS!!!
Deadprez: Albert is slapping the apron, trying to push Lucas to get up.
Eve: The Woogieman is up to one knee…now up to both knees…AND LUCAS JOHNSON FLIPS UP ONTO HIS FEET!!! He looks at The Woogieman who is not paying attention. He runs back, bounces off the ropes…comes flying back at The Woogieman…BUT THE WOOGIEMAN JUMPS UP AND HITS LUCAS JOHNSON WITH A HUGE SPINEBUSTER!!! OH MY GOD!!!
Gavin Kirkland: The Woogieman looks down at Lucas Johnson, then up to the crowd.
CROWD: WOO-GIE-MAN! WOO-GIE-MAN! WOO-GIE-MAN!
Gavin Kirkland: The Woogieman runs and bounces off one set of ropes…jumps over the downed Lucas Johnson…bounces off the other….NO! ALBERT HITCHMEN GRABBED ONE OF HIS LEGS, TRIPPING UP THE FORMER BBB BHAMPION!!! The Woogieman quickly turns over onto his back and sits up, looking at Albert Hitchman.
Eve: The ref is yelling at Hitchman! But it doesn’t seem to matter as The Woogieman wants his own payback as he slides out of the ring…AND IS SLOWLY STALKING ALBERT HITCHMAN…WHO IS BACKING AWAY FROM WOOGIE AROUND THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING! Albert’s not paying attention to where he’s going…HE TRIPS OVER THE STAIRS AND FALLS ONTO HIS BACK!!! The Woogieman stands above him…he bends over the stairs…locking eyes with Albert Hitchman.
GAVIN KIRKLAND: LUCAS JOHNSON COMES OUT OF NOWHERE!!! OFF THE APRON AND SLAMS WOOGIEMAN’S FACE INTO THE STAIRS WITH A DOUBLE FOOT STOMP!!! OH MY GOD!!! OH MY GOD!!!
Deadprez: Lucas is bending down, checking on Albert Hitchman. Meanwhile The Woogieman is motionless on his back!
Gavin Kirkland: Lucas helps Albert to his feet and Albert is motioning for Lucas to get back into the ring. But Lucas is shaking his head, checking on Albert’s stitches. It looks like Lucas is fine with Albert’s health though…as he turns toward the downed Woogieman.
CROWD: GET-UP-WOO-GIE! CLAP, CLAP, CLAP-CLAP-CLAP!!
Lucas Johnson (Off mic): SHUT UP!!! I’M THE ONE WHO JUST BEAT CAGE!!! I’M THE ONE WHO WON THE MAIN EVENT LAST WEEK!!!
CROWD: GET-UP-WOO-GIE! CLAP, CLAP, CLAP-CLAP-CLAP!!
Lucas Johnson (Off mic): You want him up? FINE!!!
Deadprez: Lucas Johnson grabs a groggy Woogieman and pulls him to his feet, pushing him up onto the apron…and rolling him into the ring. Lucas slides in aft-no…Lucas climbs up onto the apron…and climbs the ropes to the top of the turnbuckle. Lucas measures up the downed Woogieman…he jumps…RED ARROW!!! RED ARROW!!! RED ARROW!!!
Eve: But Lucas jumps to his feet, looking out onto the crowd.
CROWD: WOO-GIE-MAN! WOO-GIE-MAN! WOO-GIE-MAN!
Lucas Johnson (Off mic): Did you see what I just did? I JUST TOOK OUT YOUR WOOGIEMAN!!!
Deadprez: Well you better pin him there, Lucas.
Albert Hitchmen (Off mic): LUCAS!!! PIN HIM!!!
Eve: Lucas turns and drops down, nonchalantly hooking Woogieman’s leg.
Deadprez: NO!!! THE WOOGIEMAN KICKED OUT!!! LUCAS JOHNSON WAITED TOO LONG!!! THE WOOGIE WILL NOT DIE!!!
Eve: Lucas Johnson sits up and looks absolutely distraught and he is fuming, yelling at the ref! Lucas jumps to his feet and is getting in the refs face, yelling about a slow count.
Gavin Kirkland: Turn around, Lucas…TURN AROUND!!! THE WOOGIEMAN JUST SPRINGBOARDS UP ONTO HIS FEET AND IS STARING DOWN THE BACK OF LUCAS’ HEAD!!! Lucas Johnson turns around…AND THE WOOGIEMAN ROCKS HIM WITH A RIGHT UPPERCUT!!! Lucas stumbles back…The Woogieman lunges forward grabbing Lucas…BELLY TO BELLY SUPLEX!!! LUCAS AND WOOGIE BACK UP TO THEIR FEET! Lucas charges Woogieman…Woogieman sidesteps him…but spins and grabs him…SNAP SUPLEX ONTO LUCAS JOHNSON!!! The Woogieman is still holding on..but Lucas breaks free and spins around The Woogieman. Lucas grabs him around the waste and tries for his own suplex…BUT THE WOOGIEMAN STANDS HIS GROUND AND PLANTS A LEFT ELBOW INTO THE FACE OF LUCAS JOHNSON!!!
Deadprez: Lucas lets go of The Woogieman, stumbling back. The Woogieman turns and attempts to grab at Lucas…but he moves. The Woogieman turns…RIGHT HOOK BY LUCAS JOHNSON…BUT THE WOOGIEMAN DUCKS AND GRABS HIM…THE BOTTOM!!! THE BOTTO-NO!!! LUCAS JOHNSON READJUSTS AND HITS THE WOOGIEMAN WITH A HUGE DDT!!! Lucas Johnson pops back up to his feet as The Woogieman is slowly up to his knees.
Eve: Lucas takes a step back…runs at Woogie..AND PUNTS HIM TO THE SIDE-NO!!! THE WOOGIEMAN MOVES OUT OF THE WAY AND JUMPS UP TO HIS FEET!!! The Woogieman charges forward…grabs Lucas…SPINEBUSTER!!! SPINEBUSTER!!! Back up to his feet, The Woogieman points out onto the crowd…
CROWD: WOO-GIE-MAN! WOO-GIE-MAN! WOO-GIE-MAN!
Eve: He runs and bounces off one set up the ropes…comes flying back, hoping over Lucas…bounces off the other set of ropes…PEOPLE’S ELBOW!!! PEOPLE’S ELBOW ONTO LUCAS JOHNSON!!! THE WOOGIEMAN GOES FOR THE COVER!!!
Deadprez: NO!!! THE WOOGIEMAN JUMPS UP OFF OF LUCAS JOHNSON AS ALBERT HITCHMAN IS UP ON THE APRON!!! The Woogieman is up to his feet and is arguing with him!
Deadprez: THE WOOGIEMAN SWINGS AT ALBERT, BUT ALBERT HITCHMAN SLIDES OFF OF THE APRON AND BACKS AWAY FROM THE RING WITH HIS HANDS IN THE AIR!!!
Eve: I think he’s already did what he wanted to do.
Gavin Kirkland: The Woogieman turns around…CLAYMORE KICK FROM LU-NO! THE WOOGIEMAN MANAGED TO AVOID IT!!! He turns around…NECKBREAKER BY LUCAS JOHNSON AND THAT JUST SHOOK THE PLACE AS BOTH MAN LAY ON THE GROUND, TRYING TO CATCH THEIR BREATH!
Albert Hitchman (Off mic): OKAY, LUCAS!!! FINISH HIM!!!
Deadprez: Lucas Johnson takes a deep breath and lets it out…slowly getting up to his feet. Lucas stumbles over to the ropes, grabs the top rope…slingshots himself up to the middle rope…MOONSAULT onto The Woogieman! Lucas hooks the leg…
Eve: NO! THE WOOGIEMAN WITH THE ELEVENTH HOUR KICK OUT!!! Lucas is up on his knees, smacking the mat in frustration!
CROWD: GET-UP-WOO-GIE! CLAP, CLAP, CLAP-CLAP-CLAP!!
Deadprez: The crowd is trying to push The Woogieman to get up as Lucas Johnson is on his feet, staring angrily out onto the crowd. Lucas slowly walks over and sits on the mat in the farthest corner. Meanwhile The Woogieman has rolled over onto his stomach and is trying to push himself up.
Gavin Kirkland: Lucas uses the ropes to pull himself up to his feet as he keeps his eyes locked on The Woogieman. Woogie is finally up to his feet and he looks very out of it. He turns towards Lucas Johnson…WHO LUNGES FORWARD WITH A CLAYMORE KICK!!! HE CONNECTS! HE CONNECTS! THE WOOGIEMAN CRUMBLES TO THE GROUND!
Eve: Lucas looks to go for the cover…but stops. I think he knows that to keep the Woogieman down, he’s going to have to pull out all the stops! Lucas Johnson quickly climbs to the top rope…he jumps…RED ARROW!!! RED ARROW!!! LUCAS HOOKS THE LEG…
Deadprez: AND WOOGIEMAN GETS UP HIS SHOULDER!!!!!!!!!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Gavin Kirkland: BUT IT WASN”T IN TIME!!! LUCAS JOHNSON PUTS DOWN THE WOOGIEMAN!!!
(Lucas Johnson stands to his feet as Albert slides into the ring. Both he and the ref holdup Lucas’s arms)
Gina Romano: AND YOUR WINNER….LUCAS JOOOOOOOOOOOOOHNNNSSOOOOONNN!!!
Eve: I don’t think Lucas understood just what it takes to keep a Woogie down.
(The scene fades to Alexis Chambers sitting behind her desk in Dr. Bethany Blue’s office that Ryan Wilson had designed personally for the Doc. Alexis is wearing scrubs and a surgical face mask as she’s typing away on her computer. Meanwhile, she hears a door opening, in which a random patient walks out of Bethany’s office. Shortly after, Bethany walks out as she has her scrubs, lab coat and face mask on as she walks towards Alexis at the receptionist desk, handing her a file to put away.)
Dr. Bethany Blue: Happily, the tests came up negative for COVID-19. He almost scared me for a second, but he does have strep, so I gave him a prescription for antibiotics, but it’s better to be safe than sorry. We’re still in a middle of a pandemic and going into flu season, it’s best that we keep the Showdown roster as safe as possible.
Alexis Chambers: We gotta keep them safe going into Territorial Invasion. In a way, I can sense that you’re a bit afraid of it.
Dr. Bethany Blue: For health reasons, Lexi. Can you imagine all of these people from Dynasty and Voltage going into our show and getting their germs all over the place? It’s difficult to tolerate with the roster at the moment, but it did take some convincing for Ryan Wilson to switch the ring mats after every match. But, it’s the most important time of the year. Everyone’s excited to be a represent their brands. The Showdown loyalty is strong this year and want to be on the right side of things.
Alexis Chambers: Is Ryan Wilson still stopping by?
Dr. Bethany Blue: Of course, I had to cancel the rest of my appointment within the next hour because whatever Ryan Wilson has in mind, it has to be important. He personally contacted me, wanting to stop by and discuss a few matters.
Alexis Chambers: Bethany, you know about my issues with Ryan?
Dr. Bethany Blue: You haven’t moved on from it?
Alexis Chambers: He let you screw me out of a shot to face Darcy for the Specialists Championship. Instead, of doing something about you, he KISSED YOUR ASS —
Dr. Bethany Blue: Lexi, language.
Alexis Chambers: Bethany, you know that I’m not going to stop my cursing. :mjgrin:
Dr. Bethany Blue: Look, I understand that things were a little rough between you and Ryan last season, but you don’t know Ryan the way that I have been getting to know him. I believe in this man and his vision for the Showdown brand. In a way, it kinda correlates with my objective for Showdown and that’s to make sure that it’s in the best shape possible this season. This man wanted me on his brand. He believes in the message that I want to put across. At least, what I can do, is hear him out and what he has to say. Maybe, I’ll be extending my offices to Newark. :oh:
Alexis Chambers: What he has in mind, better be interesting, because he has shown that he is nothing more than a waste of my time. We may be friends and whatnot, but I have not forgotten about how difficult that he made things for me. How do you know what Ryan says is going to be anything good?
Dr. Bethany Blue: LEXI, JUST GIVE RYAN A DARN CHANCE!
(Alexis Chambers was taken off guard by Dr. Bethany Blue’s shouting. Bethany was a little taken away from her shouting, but goes back to her normal state.)
Dr. Bethany Blue: Sorry, but trust me, Lexi. I have good intentions and I believe that Ryan will say something that benefits us. He said that those that work the hardest will get what they deserve and we’re going to get what we deserve this season.
(A knock on the door is heard.)
Dr. Bethany Blue: The Doctor is in!
(A doorknob is heard turning as General Manager, Ryan Wilson, walks inside the office. Dr. Bethany Blue smiles as she steps forward to greet Ryan.)
Dr. Bethany Blue: We love a man who isn’t late for his appointments. Give me a second.
(Dr. Bethany Blue pulls out a forehead thermometer from her coat pocket before placing it close to Ryan’s head. It makes a beeping nose before she looks at the temperature, which is on the green side, which means that he’s good.)
Dr. Bethany Blue: 97.3°
(Dr. Bethany Blue puts the thermometer into her pocket again before giving Ryan Wilson her undivided attention.)
Dr. Bethany Blue: When we talked on the phone, you sounded quite excited to see me and Alexis. I’m sensing that it’s good news from you.
Ryan Wilson: It’s fantastic news for you (looks at Alexis from the receptionist desk) and Alexis, Bethany. As of last week, it was announced that Ronan Malosi and I will select four Showdown Elitists to represent us at Territorial Invasion. I’ve talked to Cage last week and offered him a spot on my team, but I’ve heard nothing from him yet. I’m hoping to get his answer by tonight, but we’ll see soon enough. I am still looking top to bottom on my roster, just looking for two people who I know represent my vision of Showdown. I wanted work horses. I wanted people who know a thing or two about hard work and pushing yourselves when things don’t go your way. So, I am going to throw the offer at the two of you to join Team Wilson at Territorial Invasion!
Alexis Chambers: That’s so not going to —
Dr. Bethany Blue: — That sounds great!
Alexis Chambers: :skip:
(Dr. Bethany Blue looks back at Alexis Chambers, who doesn’t seem to be on the same boat as she.)
Dr. Bethany Blue: Come on, Lexi. Let’s just hear Ryan out.
Alexis Chambers: You don’t think I forgot about what you did to me last season, Ryan?
Ryan Wilson: Now, Alexis, we’ve all done things in the past that we’ve regret. Do I look back at some of the things I did towards you and regret it? Yes, but you weren’t doing yourself favors by associating yourself with Jake Smith. Not going to lie, but I was #TeamBethany at Pain for Pride.
Dr. Bethany Blue: :mjgrin:
Ryan Wilson: Going into the new season, I don’t want any conflict with you. I want to make sure that I’m on good terms with everyone on the roster. Going into Territorial Invasion, I want for the Showdown roster to be as united as possible. My leadership is going to be on the spotlight and I can’t have you having any sort of resentment going against me. I think that you two joining Team Wilson will be beneficial to the both of you. For you, Bethany; you just want to be part of something that lets you be a Doctor. You want something that lets you live out your passion of being a wrestler and a doctor and I don’t think that Ronan Malosi understands that whatsoever. In fact, I heard he thinks the Doctor thing is weird about you.
Dr. Bethany Blue: Is that so?
Ryan Wilson: Ronan will not take you seriously as the competitor that you want to be seen as, Bethany. As for Alexis, Ronan doesn’t see you as someone who will be a future champion. Ronan looks at the women on this brand and deems them inferior to him. Meanwhile, I have tried to create any environment where people’s genders shouldn’t even be considered when giving them opportunities. It’s free opportunity for everyone and that’s what I’ve always believed in. I believe with the two of you on my team, we can make sure that Team Wilson takes the victory at Territorial Invasion. I am someone that you want on your side, ladies.
Alexis Chambers: What’s in it for us?
Ryan Wilson: I heard that Bethany would like to expand her practice throughout the United States. DEDEDE knows a few people that can get her business in other areas in Newark. What about an office in New York and California — two areas who are very much infected with COVID-19. Wouldn’t she like to be the reason why this COVID-19 ends? Wouldn’t you like to contribute to the end of that? Maybe, I can have DEDEDE use his connections and allow you to work alongside some of the best doctors in the United States as we work on a cure for COVID-19?
(Dr. Bethany Blue’s interest piques. She is liking what Ryan Wilson has to say.)
Ryan Wilson: As for wrestling wise, whenever an opportunity strikes, you will be the first name that I think of, Bethany. The same with you, Alexis; you have shown to be reliable. You have went toe-to-toe with some of the best on Showdown since your arrival, but you haven’t gotten the recognition that you deserve. Being a sole survivor with my team, could mean amazing things for you. It could lead you to getting a championship faster than your brother did in this company. Working alongside me will lead you to benefits. I am the type of person that you want on your side, Alexis.
(Alexis Chambers thinks about it, but it’s unclear whether she’s sold on the deal or not.)
Alexis Chambers: I’ll do what you want, Bethany. I trust you.
Dr. Bethany Blue: This will be amazing for us, Lexi. Having Ryan in your back pocket could be beneficial to you. Meanwhile, working alongside DEDEDE’s doctors and expanding my practice could lead me to that Noble Peace Prize! It’s monumental! We’re in, Ryan.
(Ryan Wilson has a smile on his face before he pulls out two “Team Wilson” t-shirts and passes them to Alexis Chambers and Dr. Bethany Blue.)
Ryan Wilson: Excellent choice, ladies. I can assure you that you’re on the right side of this war between me and Ronan.
(Commercial break. Rewatch Voltage’s Bloodsport on the EAW Network…NOW!)
(Showdown returns from commercial break with Gina Romano in the middle of the ring.)
Gina Romano: The following contest is scheduled for One Fall!!
Socially Distanced Crowd: ONE FALL!!
(‘War’ by Grandson plays through the Performance Center. The socially distanced crowd boos at the entrance music of Jake Smith. Jake walks out with confident swagger to himself as he is sided by Bronson Daniels on his way to the ring. )
Gina Romano: Introducing first! Accompanied to the ring by the New Breed Champion Bronson Daniels! From Venice, California! Weighing in at 210 pounds he is JAKE… SMIIIIIIITH!!
Gavin Kirkland: Quite an interesting season Jake has had so far! Can’t believe he allowed someone from another brand to become number one contender for Jamie O’Hara’s championship though!
Deadprez: I’m pretty sure Doctor Bethany remembers that well, we’ll have to see what happens!
( ‘Escape’ by Rupert Holmes hits the Performance Center’s PA system as the Doctor of Stawbanomics is casually making his way to the ring looking like he does not have a care in the world.)
Gina Romano: From the Strawberry Fields of Glasgow, England; STRAWBERRY… STEEEEEEEEVE!!
Gavin Kirkland: For a slouch, he sure is impressive!
Deadprez: He made short work of TnT last week. Let’s see how he goes against a much better opponent.
(Ding! Ding!! Ding!)
Eve: And this match is underway!! Both men are looking at each other in the center of the ring, Steve looks a bit bored while Jake looks about ready to tear him a new one with Bronson, the New Breed Champion, talking all sorts of trash at the Doctor of Strawbanomics who doesn’t seem to be bothered at all by this. Jake goes to clinch with Steve but the Scott is all soft and wobbly almost like Jake was handling a rag doll which gets him to have a look on his face before throwing Steve to the ropes in an Irish Whip with force but Steve no-sells it! He walks up to the ropes and instead of bouncing off it to rush towards Jake he turns and actually leans against them casually! Jake seems annoyed by this as he motions to Steve to get over where he was while the man from Glasgow yawns as a response. He covers his mouth partly then raises his shoulders.
Strawberr Steve (off-mic): Oh alright alright…
Eve: Steve moves forward and is looking at Smith who is waiting for him to make a move and the Strawberry man goes to throw a Deadly Punch but then he stops. He motions that he wants to engage in a clinch with one hand in the air waiting for Smith to grab hold but then as Jake goes to reach Steve backs off and gets both hands in the air before slowly lowering them in his pockets!!
Deadprez: The Career Ender!!
Gavin Kirkman: Boring! Fight Smith You Fucking Sloth!!
Eve: The former two-times Pure Champion groans and throws in a sudden and powerful looking superkick but Steve ducks to the side and applies the Soul-Crushing Splash to Smith!! He is Hugging Jake Smith! Bronson can’t believe this as he goes up the apron arguing yelling that this isn’t wrestling and the official goes to meet him ordering him to step d-OOOOOOOOH!!! A LOW BLOW BY JAKE SMITH FROM BEHIND ON STEVE WITH HIS FOOT!!!! The official didn’t notice the move, distracted by the New Breed Champion! Smith puts the hurting Steve in a headlock and lifts a leg forward before dropping a Headlock Driver!! Steve’s head driver right into the mat followed by a cover by Jake who yells at the official!
Referee: One! Two!!
Gavin Kirkland: He kicked out! Steve Kicked Out! Dammit I was hoping for a quick one!
Deadprez: Isn’t that what she said? Don’t answer that.
Eve: Jake continues on as he moves to set Steve up for a fisherman suplex perfectly executed and he goes for another pin attempt!
Deadprez: Steve kicks out early!
Eve: Seems like it will take more for Jake to get the win over Strawberry Steve tonight despite his lazy ways he is rather resilient! Jake moves Steve to a corner and begins to drill his shoulder into the stomach of the Glasgow native he is going hard at it before he climbs atop of the second turnbuckle and begins to unload fists on Steve’s face! The fans are booing, some are counting but in any event, Smith isn’t caring as he moves back to the center of the ring and charges towards Steve going from a dropkick in the corner BUT STEVE MOVES AWAY!! Smith gets stuck upside down with his leg stuck in the corner!! Now is a good time for Steve to get in some offense and he goes for a series of Deadly Kicks to the face of Jake Smith who is still struggling trying to get free! Wait what is Steve doing? He puts his hands down his pockets and…
Gavin Kirkland (sarcastically): The Career Endeeeeeerrr… err…
Deadprez: C’mon man!
Eve: Steve begins to jug making a circle around the ring but he runs quicker until he reaches Smith and DRILLS HIM WITH A RUNNING DROPKICK TO THE FACE WHILE HAVING HIS HANDS DOWN HIS POCKETS!! The impact frees Jake who crumbles to the ground as Steve gets up looking casual as always under the cheers of the socially distanced crowd!! He gives them a weak thumbs up before moving to look at Smith who just got to his knees. Steve stomps a foot lazily on the ground, then a second time, and a third is he going to go for the knee to the head? He does and It Connects!! Smith goes down and Steve follows with a running Senton before moving to hook the leg for a cover!!
Referee: One! Two!!
Deadprez: Smith kicks out!
Gavin Kirkland: Thank God! Would you imagine if he had lost to Steve??
Eve: He might if he doesn’t turn the tides as Steve seems to be gathering momentum on his side! He picks Smith up and throws him into the ropes only to clip him and send him down with a swingblade! Well executed by the Doctor of Strawbanomics! He gets Smith to a vertical base again and whips him into a corner there he goes again putting his hands in his pockets
Gavin Kirkland: I ain’t doing it this time!
Gavin Kirkland: Shut up.
Eve: Steve goes for a running headbutt to the stomach of Smith BUT JAKE MOVES AWAY AND STEVE’S HEAD ENDS UP AGAINST THE POST!! Smith doesn’t waste any time as he grabs Steve by the legs and WOAH!! WHEELBARROW SUPLEX!! Did you hear the sound coming out of Steve’s back smacking on the mat that sounded painful! Smith doesn’t let up he picks up Steve again and moves him to a Northern lights suplex executed superbly and then goes for a pin!
Referee: One! Two!!
Deadprez: Steve kicks out! He simply doesn’t want to let go!
Eve: Smith is starting to have enough of this now as he looks at Bronson who is cheering him on at ringside. Steve gets to his feet helped by Steve who slaps him in the face cussing at him before whipping him into the ropes. Smith tries for a clothesline but Steve goes under the arm! He tries for a spinning heel kick ducked again by Steve who then jumps on the middle rope and connects WITH JAKE WITH A DIVING DROPKICK!! Down goes Jake Smith as Steve is waiting for him to get up from a corner he is poised for a strike and RUNNING SUPERMAN PUNCH CONNECTS!! Smith goes down again and —
Eve: Wait a minute! Bronson Daniels is on the apron again and is getting Steve’s attention as well as the official who tells him to step off. Steve looks at Daniels as the New Breed Champion is foul mouthing him; but look behind Steve! Jake is getting up! He spins Steve around and kicks him in the oh! No it’s blocked by Steve but Jake goes for a thumb in the eye as the official is still dealing with Daniels! Kick to the gut from Jake and Steve bends forward! Uh Oh! Is he going for… YES! THE TIGER DRIVER 91!!! IT DRILLS STRAWBERRY STEVE’S HEAD AND BACK OF THE NECK TO THE MAT!! Jake leans down to go for a cover but waits until he is getting Steve back up! Steve is staggering clearly in another timezone right now as Jake sets him up for the Abysmal Ending! IT CONNECTS! THE ELEVATED BUTTERFLY DDT CONNECTS! Will that be enough to put Steve away this time?
Referee: One! Two!! THREE!!!
Eve: IT IS!!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
(‘War’ by Grandson plays through the Performance Center as the official raises Jake Smith’s arm declaring him the victor while Bronson Daniels slides into the ring to celebrate with his buddy. )
Gina Romano: The winner of this bout: JAAAAAAKE SMIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIITH!!!
Gavin Kirkland: Logic respected in this match! I didn’t see the fruit basket win to be honest.
Dradprez: Oh please the guy gave out a good show regardless!
(The scene pans to General Manager Ryan Wilson walking in the hallway and back to his office. He seems to be in a happy mood since he managed to get the Maidens of Malpractice — Dr. Bethany Blue and Alexis Chambers onto Team Wilson. He is still waiting a response from Cage, but he is loving how his team is shaping up to be. Ryan opens the door to his office before stepping in. He stops and stares before shaking his head.)
Ryan Wilson: Look, who the cat dragged in…
(The camera moves to Harlow Reichert, who is sitting on the couch. Miss No Fucks Given has her arms crossed as she lays back on the couch. She had been waiting for Ryan Wilson to appear for quite sometime. Harlow doesn’t seem happy to see Ryan, more like annoyed that she has too. If she could have gone on the rest of her season without seeing Ryan, it would make her happier than she must feel at the moment.)
Harlow Reichert: You’ve been trying to get a hold of me since Pain for Pride. It shouldn’t be that surprising. I threw my phone at the water after your tenth voicemail.
Ryan Wilson: I’ve heard rumors that you were in Mexico.
Harlow Reichert: Those rumors are true. I had a wonderful time in Cancún – relaxing on the beach, drinking mimosa and reading some books to pass up the time. It’s been peaceful to distance myself away from EAW after the events at Pain for Pride. After everything that occurred with me following the loss of the PURE Championship, you shouldn’t blame me for wanting to distance myself from everyone.
Ryan Wilson: You should have at least informed EAW about taking a break. You should have let me know at least what you were going to be doing after Pain for Pride.
Harlow Reichert: Honestly Ryan; you are one of the people that I wanted to distance myself from.
(Ryan Wilson looks at Harlow Reichert confused and taken off guard.)
Harlow Reichert: Don’t play dumb with me, Ryan. If it wasn’t for you, I would have never faced Xavier at Pain for Pride. I would have never found myself on the losing end of the match. If it wasn’t for you, I probably wouldn’t have scraped all of my goals that I had going for this season. 2020 was looking like a promising year and after Pain for Pride, I was left unclear with what I wanted to do. What is my purpose for being here, Ryan? Why did I even bother showing up to Showdown?
Ryan Wilson: I have a purpose for you being here, but did you watch Midsummer Massacre?
Harlow Reichert: Like I said, I tried to distance myself from EAW and all its programming.
Ryan Wilson: At that event, I made Consuela Rose Ava captain for the Brand Warfare match at Territorial Invasion and do you know who was the first person she wanted on her team? You, Harlow.
(Harlow Reichert raises a brow.)
Harlow Reichert: Me? Do you really expect me to be a team player going into Territorial Invasion? If anything, Showdown hasn’t been in my good side lately, so what makes you think that I am willing to be a good soldier and fall in line for you?
Ryan Wilson: Harlow, you’re an amazing competitor. It’s one of the reasons that I wanted you on my brand this season. You’re an amazing competitor and last season, everyone became aware of what a talent you are. If I were to advise you about something, I advise you not to be on the wrong side of this entire thing going into Territorial Invasion.
Harlow Reichert: Is that supposed to be some kind of warning?
Ryan Wilson: It’s just a piece of advice. Don’t decline the offer for Brand Warfare. Sit on the idea and I would like to hear a response next week.
Harlow Reichert: It’s pretty obvious where my head’s at, but I’ll sit on it.
(Harlow Reichert stands up from Ryan Wilson’s couch.)
Ryan Wilson: Think well, Harlow. Your involvement in Brand Warfare could shift the odds in our favor.
(Harlow Reichert is given that last sentence as a thought before leaving Ryan Wilson’s office. Still, the entire situation seems unclear, but we’ll see Harlow’s response next week.)
(The camera pans back to ringside.)
(‘Hey Superstar’ by Madina Lake booms through the speakers of the Performance Center as Sierra Bradford walks down the ramp to a roar from the fans in attendance. She looks around and nods her head with a smile before sliding into the ring and posing in the middle of it)
Gina Romano: MAKING THEIR WAY DOWN TO THE RING FIRST….FROM IN SAN JOSE, CALIFORNIA….WEIGHING IN AT 141 POUNDS…. ‘THE MULTIVERSAL CONSTANT’…… SIERRRRRAAAAAAAA BRADFORD!!!!
Eve: I’d say it’s safe to say Sierra’s been making waves recently! She couldn’t pick up the Interwire Championship at Midsummer Massacre but I don’t think that’ll stop her!
Deadprez: Yeah, I’d say the same. Sierra’s mentally strong. Although the loss may upset her, it won’t take a major toll on her!
(Jubilant cheers transition into jeers and boos as ‘The Only Thing They Fear Is You’ by Mick Gordon hits the speakers. Ryan Wilson makes his way down the ramps to a choir of boos. Ryan rolls into the ring with a look of determination as the music fades out.)
Gina Romano: AND HER OPPONENT…..FROM MONTREAL,QUEBEC, CANADA……WEIGHING IN AT 220 POUNDS…..HE IS THE SHOWDOWN GENERAL MANAGER… MISTERRRR WILLLSONNNN!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: Different week, same reaction from the people in the Performance Centre. They hate this man to bits and will do anything to see him get his comeuppance
Eve: I’m guessing a lot of people would pay money to see Ryan Wilson get his ass kicked. Who knows? Maybe we’ll see that happen tonight!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Eve: And this match is underway! Sierra and Ryan meet up in the middle of the ring. Ryan looks down at Sierra who has a smile on her face. Ryan shakes his head and laughs before lifting his hand up and telling Sierra to lock up with him. Sierra slowly and gradually stretches her arm out but Ryan pulls his arm out the way and lands a kick to the gut of Sierra
Deadprez: Ryan pulls her up and grabs a hold of her wrist. He goes to irish whip her into the ropes but Sierra uses all of her strength and reverses it, irish whipping Ryan into the ropes instead! Ryan rebounds off the ropes and comes dashing back at Sierra. She tries to take the GM down with a clothesline but Ryan ducks under and keeps on running. He rebounds off the ropes and dashes at Sierra once again but this time Sierra connects with an elbow strike. Ryan stays on his feet though
Gavin Kirkland: It’s Sierra’s turn to go for a run. Sierra rushes to the ropes but before she can rebound off them, Wilson follows her! Sierra rebounds off them and runs into nothing. SIERRA TURNS AROUND AND IS MET WITH A ROUNDHOUSE FROM RYAN!
Deadprez: NO! SIERRA DODGES THE KICK AND GOES FOR ONE OF HER OWN! BUT RYAN DODGES THAT TOO!
Gavin Kirkland: THE PAIR STARE INTO EACH OTHERS EYES BEFORE RUNNING TO THE ROPES, THEY REBOUND OFF THEM AND CHARGE AT EACH OTHER AND KNOCK EACH OTHER DOWN WITH A DOUBLE RUNNING CLOTHESLINE!
Deadprez: THAT’S NOT ALL THOUGH! THEY KIP UP BACK TO THEIR FEET IN SYNC! SIERRA GETS THE UPPERHAND THOUGH AND KNOCKS RYAN DOWN WITH A BIG ROUNDHOUSE!
Eve: The smile from the off stays on Sierra’s face as she looks down at Ryan. She turns her attention back to her opponent. Sierra drags Ryan up to his feet by his hair and pulls him into the corner. Sierra then unloads on Ryan with massive shoot kicks right into Ryan’s waist! She then switches it up and nails Ryan with knee strikes into his gut. She finally finishes off her assault and grabs a hold of Ryan by the wrist then throws him down out of the corner and onto the mat
Deadprez: Sierra wastes no time, she grabs Wilson by his foot and puts it onto the ropes. Sierra then charges at the ropes, rebounds off then and runs at Ryan, nailing him with a shotgun one legged dropkick right into his foot!
Gavin Kirkland: But no! Ryan manages to slide out of the way. Sierra aims to follow that up and land a fast penalty kick to Wilson but the Showdown General Manager thinks fast again and slides out of the way once again. Ryan manages to jump up to his feet whilst using the ropes for support and strength. Sierra on the other hand senses a potential opportunity to cause damage. Sierra paces it towards Ryan BUT RYAN LANDS A BIG SUPERKICK ON SIERRA!
Eve: She stays on her feet though! Ryan quickly rushes to the ropes and rebounds off them towards Sierra but she runs towards him! WILSON DIVES INTO THE AIR….SUPERRMANN PUNC-
Deadprez: NO! SIERRA DUCKS UNDERNEATH RYAN AND GRABS A HOLD OF HIS RIGHT ANKLE! SIERRA LOCKS RYAN IN AN ANKLE LOCK IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING! WILSON WAILS HIS ARMS IN THE AIR LOOKING FOR THE ROPES BUT SIERRA HAS IT LOCKED IN REAL GOOD! RYAN HAS NOWHERE TO GO!
Gavin Kirkland: WAIT! RYAN USES HIS BODY STRENGTH TO ROLL OVER ONTO HIS BACK AND DRAG SIERRA DOWN TO HER FEET USING HIS LEGS! RYAN GETS OUT OF THE HOLD
Eve: HE LOOKS TO APPLY A HOLD OF HIS OWN THOUGH AS HE LOCKS SIERRA IN A CROSSFACE! THE BLOODRUSH! THIS IS RIGHT OUT OF SIERRA BRADFORD’S ARSENAL! SIERRA’S GONNA HAVE TO TAP TO ONE OF HER SIGNATURE MOVES HERE!
Deadprez: LOOK AT SIERRA THOUGH! SIERRA MANAGES TO GET ONTO HER KNEES AS RYAN KEEPS THE SUBMISSION IN! SHE DRIVES AND DRIVES TOWARDS THAT BOTTOM ROPE BUT RYAN KEEPS ON PULLING BACK! SIERRA IS SO CLOSE, INCHES AWAY! SHE STRETCHES HER ARM OUT AGAIN..
Eve: RYAN RELEASES THE HOLD THOUGH! HE RELEASES IT BEFORE SIERRA CAN GET TO THE ROPES! RYAN QUICKLY SHOOTS UP BACK ONTO HIS FEET AND LOCKS HIS ARMS AROUND SIERRA’S WAIST! HE LIFTS HER ALL THE WAY UP INTO THE AIR AND LANDS A BRIDGING GERMAN SUPLEX! THE REFEREE COUNTS!
Referee: ONEEEEE! TWOOOOOO-
Gavin Kirkland: Sierra manages to kick out but Ryan is pissed off! He pulls himself up to his feet with help from the ropes and stares down at Sierra. He starts to circle around her, nailing her with stomps right into the back of her head too. Ryan turns Sierra over and grabs a hold of her two arms and unleashes on her! Ryan goes ham and nails her with massive stomps right into her face and upper body! Ryan is relentless! He aint slowing down! He lands stomp after stomp after stomp right into the skull!
Eve: After multiple stiff stomps, Ryan finally drops Sierra back onto the mat. That doesn’t mean his assault is finished though. Ryan grabs her by the hair and seats her up in the middle of the ring. Ryan lets go of her and runs to the ropes, he rebounds off them and charges at Sierra and nails her with a destructive penalty kick right into her chest!
Deadprez: A devious grin quickly grows onto Ryan’s face as he laughs at his fallen opponent. He nods his head at the fans in attendance who shower him with boos and tells them to sing louder
Eve: Eventually, Ryan turns his attention back to Sierra. Ryan waits for her to get back onto her feet as he stalks her down. Sierra finally manages to get up and Ryan charges at her….CHAOSSSS THEOR- SIERRA PUSHES RYAN OFF HER!
Gavin Kirkland: SIERRA GETS RYAN OFF HER AND PUSHES HIM TO THE GROUND! RYAN GETS BACK ONTO HIS FEET AND RUNS AT SIERRA BUT SHE CONNECTS WITH A BIG ENZIGURI! RYAN STAYS ON HIS FEET THOUGH! SIERRA THEN REBOUNDS OFF THE ROPES AND SPRINTS AT RYAN…
Gavin Kirkland: RYAN CONNECTS WITH A SUPERMAN PUNCH! HIS SIGNATURE MOVE! SIERRA COMES CRASHING DOWN ONTO THE MAT! RYAN CAN END IT ALL HERE
Eve: Ryan points at Sierra, shakes his head and shouts ‘NO!’ to the audience. RYAN DRAGS SIERRA TO HER FEE-
(‘2nd Sucks’ by A Day to Remember suddenly plays through the speakers as Ronan Malosi arrogantly strolls down the ramp with a massive grin on his face.)
Gavin Kirkland: This cannot be good! What’s Ronan doing out here man! We had a good match going on here but Ronan’s ass had to come out and mess up the whole damn flow!
Eve: Ryan drops Sierra down, leans over the ropes and turns his attention to Ronan. Things heat up as the two argue and go back and forth with each other. Ryan’s pissed off and confused as to why Ronan’s even out here. Ronan’s reasoning?
Ronan Malosi (off-mic): I’m just scouting the competition man, calm yourself down for a second buddy!
Deadprez: Ryan’s blood starts to boil BUT BEFORE HE CAN SAY ANYTHING ELSE! SIERRA TAKES HIM DOWN WITH A SEEKING MISSILE TO THE BACK! THE RUNNING KNEE! SIERRA THROWS RYAN INTO THE MIDDLE OF THE RING AND RUNS TO THE ROPES, SHE REBOUNDS OFF THEM AND CHARGES AT RYAN… ELECTRIC FEEEEELLLLL! THE SHINING WIZARD! SHE GOES FOR THE COVER!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOOOO! THREEEEEEEEE!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Gina Romano: HERE IS YOUR WINNER… SIERRRRAAAAAAAAAAAAA BRADDDDFORDDDDDD!
Gavin Kirkland: THIS IS ALL THAT FUC- THIS IS THAT RONAN MALOSI’S FAULT I SWEAR!
Eve: That exactly is the case. Ryan was in complete control of the match and was inches away from finishing things off but Ronan came out, he lost his focus and Sierra took advantage of Ryan’s misfortunes and she left tonight with a big victory against our General Manager!
(Kyra Phillips is shown backstage standing behind a blue Showdown backdrop.)
Kyra Phillips: Last week’s Operation: Doomsday, trended worldwide on Twitter and one of the talked about results of the entire night belonged to the Unified Tag Team Championship picture. We saw The Grand Athletes manage to take the titles away from Fire & Ice. Talking her first time since Operation: Doomsday, Raven Roberts!
(Raven Roberts walks into the camera shot with a serious look on her face. Operation: Doomsday did not fall into her favor. The loss stung her a bit as she was not expecting to lose those Unified Tag Team Championships anytime soon. That, plus, the loss against Xavier Williams at Midsummer Massacre, combining that from Pain for Pride, things are not looking good for ‘The Bird of Prey,’ but as she always does with setbacks, she will find a way to bounce back.)
Kyra Phillips: Raven, it’s been a tough few weeks for you —
Raven Roberts: — Is this the moment where people expect me to crumble underneath the pressure because I’ve experienced a couple of losses? Because that’s not what I am planning to do. There are people who believe that I should hold Rex accountable for losing those Unified Tag Team Championships, but I will never do that to him. I am not going to throw my husband underneath the bus and blame him for my shortcoming at Operation: Doomsday. At that event, it wasn’t just my shortcoming, but his as well. As of last night, it seems like he got back at Myles for what he did the week before. It’s what I expected for Rex to do. Now, I’m left without any gold wrapped around my waist. Will we get our rematch for the titles? With us being on two separate brands, those Unified Tag Team Championships were the titles that kept Fire & Ice as an active tag team. With Rex being on Voltage and me being on Showdown, do we see Fire & Ice working? Honestly, we’re both people who will continue to work at something unless, we are being pulled in two opposite directions.
Kyra Phillips: With Territorial Invasion around the corner and you being vocal about being on Showdown, where do you see yourself doing?
Raven Roberts: I was looking at Ryan Wilson trying to recruit Harlow Reichert for Brand Warfare and couldn’t stop laughing. It was so pathetic to see him, trying to get people to wave the Showdown banner so proudly. I don’t think that I’ve ever been loyal to a brand and I’m not looking to start now. Who could forget the whole “FUCK EMPIRE” thing? Last year, who could forget that Veena Adams signed me, Andrea Valentine and Ms. Extreme up for War Games with the intention to set us up to fail? As for this year, I really don’t care about what I’ll be doing. I’m not fighting for Brand supremacy. I’m fighting for myself. If that makes me an enemy on Showdown, then so be it. I could care less.
???: Raven, the person I wanted to talk too!
(Raven Roberts is cut off as Consuela Rose Ava, the Interwire Champion walks into the camera shot with a Showdown blue face mask on her face. Her title on her shoulder. Even though she’s wearing the mask, you can sense that she’s smiling through it. Meanwhile, Raven wasn’t expecting for Consuela to cut her interview short, but anything for a Beating Heart.)
Raven Roberts: Consuela, what’s up?
Consuela Rose Ava: I may or may not have been eavesdropping your interview, but I noticed that you didn’t know what you were doing for Territorial Invasion, so I thought I make things easier for you. Would you please fight alongside me in Brand Warfare? :lupe: !!!!!!
(Raven Roberts sighs.)
Raven Roberts: Did you not see me go into a small monologue about ‘not fighting for Brand supremacy?’
Consuela Rose Ava: Yeah, but look; try not to look at this as fighting for Showdown or Ryan Wilson, Raven. Fight alongside me and prove that we’re the best talents that Voltage or Dynasty cannot offer. 🥺
(Raven Roberts folds her arms across her chest. She doesn’t want to do this Brand Warfare, but Consuela Rose Ava is one of her friends here. She finds herself in a bit of a conflict.)
Raven Roberts: We don’t need this match to prove that we’re amazing competitors, but, let me think about it. Give me a week to make up my mind. I’ve been burnt out these past few weeks. This is one of the first weeks that I’ve had off since getting traded to Showdown, but I just want to be able to reflect, relax before I jump into something else. Can you at least give that to me?
Consuela Rose Ava: Okay. One week, Raven.
(Raven Roberts nods as Consuela Rose Ava walks away from the camera shot.)
Gina Romano: THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SCHEDULED FOR ONE FALL!
Social Distancing Crowd: ONE FALL!!!
(‘Snake Eyes of Madness’ hits as James Ranger walks down the ramp and enters the ring where he’s met with mixed reactions.)
Gina Romano: INTRODUCING FIRST, FROM LONDON ENGLAND, WEIGHING IN AT TWO HUNDRED AND FOURTY-THREE POUNDS…. HE IS THE BLACK MAMBA…. JAMESSSS RRRRAAAAANNNNNGGGGERRRR!!!
Eve: James Ranger is a young upstart trying to make a name for himself in EAW. Every week he comes out here and tries to put on the best match possible to prove that he belongs here fighting amongst the best of the best. Only time will tell where this young man ends up but the sky is the limit for him.
(‘2nd Sucks’ by A Day to Remember blasts throughout the Performance Center as Ronan Malosi confidently walks down the ramp and enters the ring as the crowd boos relentlessly.)
Gina Romano: AND HIS OPPONENT, FROM CAPETOWN, SOUTH AFRICA,
MR. MAIN EVENT’ RRRRRROOOOONNNNAAAANNNNNNN MAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALOOOOOOOOOOOOOSSSSIII!
Deadprez: Speaking of the sky being the limit, this man Ronan Malosi has had the deck stacked against him his whole career. Two weeks ago at Midsummer Massacre he finally pushed through and earned himself a contract to be on ShowDown and he’s not going to let that
(DING! DING! DING!)
Deadprez: Ranger and Malosi engage each other in a collar and elbow tie-up! Ranger is being brought down to a knee as he suffers at the pure power of the much bigger Ronan Malosi! Ronan is asserting more force on that tie-up.. and – NO Ranger counters it and now these two young elitists are locked together in a clinch- yet another test of strength… AND ONCE MORE THE MUCH BIGGER RONAN MALOSI IS OVERPOWERING JAMES RANGER WHO FALLS BACK DOWN ONTO ONE KNEE WHILE STILL TRYING TO KEEP UP WITH MALOSI!
Eve: There’s about a forty pound weight differential between Ronan Malosi and James Ranger- as Ronan Malosi continues upping the amount of pressure he applies on that clinch… James Ranger’s other leg is buckling… will it giv-
Gavin Kirkland: YES- it does… James Ranger is on both knees and Ronan Malosi is taking full advantage as he delivers a HUGE stomp into the unguarded midsection of James Ranger! And I think that stomp knocked the wind out of Ranger as he squirms around on the canvas! Ronan Malosi, isn’t done as he walks over and grabs the arms of James Ranger. What does Ronan Malosi have planned here?
Crowd: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FIVE! SIX! SEVEN!
Deadprez:… STOMPS! RONAN MALOSI IS STOMPING A HOLE THROUGH THE CHEST AND TORSO OF JAMES RANGER AND THE CROWD IS COUNTING ALONG WITH EACH STOMP.
CROWD: EIGHT! NINE! TEN!
Eve: TEN UNANSWERED STOMPS TO THE BODY OF JAMES RANGER WHO LOOKS LIKE HE’S IN TREMENDOUS PAIN- meanwhile Ronan Malosi looks like he’s having the time of his life. He’s smiling, he’s on cloud nine- he won his way onto a brand and now he’s showing the world why he’s here to stay.
Gavin Kirkland: Ronan Malosi picks James Ranger up and Irish whips him into the ropes before following suit- Ranger stops his own momentum and turns around… JUMPING CLOTHESLINE CONNECTS FROM RONAN MALOSI AND HE NEARLY TOOK JAMES RANGERS HEAD OFF WITH IT! Ronan crawls over for the pin!
Deadprez: NOPE. JAMES RANGER GETS THE SHOULDER UP AT TWO! Ronan Malosi is now realizing he hasn’t done nearly enough to put this match away. He picks James Ranger up and once again Irish whips him into the ropes and follows suit- Ranger turns around once more… JUMPING CLOTH- .. NO .. JAMES RANGER DUCKS THIS TIME AND RONAN MALOSI CRASHES AND BURNS ONTO THE CANVAS!
Eve: Ronan Malosi tries to go back to the well and fails miserably, but this could be the opportunity James Ranger needed. James Ranger mounts Ronan Malosi and unleashes fury or lefts and rights that Ronan Malosi seems to not be able to avoid in time.
Gavin Kirkland: James Ranger stands up and gets a little form of revenge as he connects with a swift soccer kick to the midsection of Ronan Malosi who instantly yells out in pain. Ranger isn’t nearly done with his onslaught though- The man from London England picks the two hundred and eighty pounder up and places him on his shoulders- this cannot bode well– Ranger has Malosi on his shoulders …
Eve: … OH MY GOD…JAMES RANGER JUST PLANTS RONAN MALOSI SQUARE ON THE CANVAS WITH… WELL WITH RONAN MALOSI’S OWN SIGNATURE MOVE. F-10!!!! THE F-10 CONNECTS ON RONAN MALOSI AND I THINK THAT MOVE TOOK JUST AS MUCH OUT OF RANGER AS IT DID MALOSI!
Gavin Kirkland: Well I mean it makes sense, Ronan has been attacking Rangers core all match- picking up two hundred-and eighty pounds and executing a move like that would take a lot out of any man. But nonetheless, both competitors are down and the referee has started his ten count!
ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FIVE! SIX!
Deadprez: We’re nearing the latter half of the count and still neither competitor has moved an inch! Ronan Malosi is face down on the canvas barely breathing and James Ranger is laying flat on his back trying to make it back to his feet!
Eve: James Ranger makes it back to his feet and stumbles trying to walk over to Malosi.. Ranger reaches down to pick Malosi up and he— LOWBLOW! LOWBLOW FROM MALOSI ONTO JAMES RANGER AND IT ALL HAPPENED SO FAST THE REFEREE DIDN’T EVEN SEE IT. RONAN MALOSI MAKES IT BACK TO HIS FEET AND PICKS UP THE WEAKENED JAMES RANGER… I THINK WE KNOW WHAT THIS IS… RONAN PULLS JAMES RANGER IN AND SPINS HIM AROUND… HOTTAKE HELLFIRE!!!! IT CONNECTS! RONAN DROPS DOWN FOR THE PIN!!!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: HOW DID JAMES RANGER KICK OUT OF THAT!!!!? Ronan Malosi is fuming. Ronan tries for the pin once again- I guess he feels the referee’s count was just too slow.
Eve: ANOTHER KICK OUT FROM JAMES RANGER AND RONAN MALOSI HAS HAD IT! RONAN PICKS RANGER UP… DEATH-RO!!!!! IT CONNECTS THE MODIFIED STO SLAM CONNECTS ON JAMES RANGER WHO JUST GOES COMPLETELY STIFF!
???: HOLD ON, HOLD ON, HOLD ON.
(Ronan Malosi turns his attention to the stage where we see Ryan Wilson with a microphone in hand)
Ryan Wilson: Hey Mr. Malosi, do you remember me? Your gracious GM. The Man who helped you get your job?
Ronan Malosi(off mic): Help me? You didn’t help me do anything. If anything, you made my life hell.
Ryan Wilson: Apples to Oranges, Mr. Malosi. Apples to Oranges. Nonetheless, I just wanted to say you’re welcome for the help. And Welcome to ShowDown.
Ronan Malosi(off mic): You didn’t help? :russwtf: What are you talking abo-
Deadprez: JAMES RANGER WITH THE SCHOOLBOY ROLLUP ON RONAN MALOSI!!!! HE HAS THE TIGHTS AS WELL!!!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Gina Romano: THE WINNER OF THIS MATCH…… JAAAAAAAAAAMMMMMEEEEESSSSSSS RRRRRRRRRRRAAAAAAAAANNNNNGGGGGGGEERRRRR!!!!!!
(‘Snake Eyes of Madness’ hits as James Ranger quickly rolls out of the ring and runs up the ramp to the back past Ryan Wilson who is still staring at Ronan Malosi and laughing.)
Deadprez: Ryan Wilson gets the last laugh here tonight at the expense of Ronan Malosi who’s now in the ring going LIVID! Ronan Malosi hasn’t taken his eyes off Ryan Wilson and Ryan Wilson hasn’t stopped laughing since the referee’s hand made the count of three!
Eve: Ronan Malosi stands up and it seems like he’s yelling obscurities towards our General Manager-
(A Masked Man slides in the ring unbeknownst to Ronan Malosi as the crowd cheers in anticipation.)
Gavin Kirkland: WAIT A MINUTE WHO THE HELL IS THAT! Ronan Malosi doesn’t even see him cause he’s too busy shouting back and forth with Ryan Wilson, and the crowd has gone wild. Ronan Malosi finally acknowledges the crowds cheering and turns around–
DeadPrez: RONAN MALOSI TURNS AROUND INTO A SUPERKICK FROM HELL!! THAT SUPERKICK NEARLY JUST KNOCKED RONAN MALOSI’S HEAD OFF AND RYAN WILSON LOOKS PLEASED! WHO IS THIS THUG!? RONAN MALOSI MUST BE OUT COLD BUT THIS MASKED INDIVIDUAL ISN’T FINISHED WITH HIM YET AND HE CONTINUES STOMPING AND KICKING AWAY AT THE NEWEST MEMBER OF THE SHOWDOWN ROSTER!
Eve: THIS HOODED MASKED INDIVIDUAL IS BEATING THE HOLY HELL OUT OF RONAN MALOSI AND SECURITY IS COMING TO STOP IT- NO RYAN WILSON WAVES THEM OFF AND TELLS THEM TO LET THIS PLAY OUT! THE MASKED MAN PICKS UP THE BARELY CONSCIOUS RONAN MALOSI ONCE MORE…..—- SUPERKICK ONCE MORE AND THAT ONE WAS EVEN HARDER THAN THE FIRST!
Gavin Kirkland: I SWEAR I JUST SAW RONAN MALOSI’S NECK WHIPLASH!! THAT YOUNG MAN IS NOT MOVING! THAT SUPERKICK JUST TOOK ALL THE LIFE OUT OF THIS PERFORMANCE CENTER! RONAN MALOSI IS IN A BAD WAY IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING AND THIS HOODED MASKED MAN IS SEEMING TO ENJOY HIMSELF.
Deadprez: I just want to know who this punk is.
(The masked man looks down at Ronan Malosi’s unconscious body before finally taking his hoodie off to reveal a Dynasty t-shirt as the crowd boos.)
Gavin Kirkland: Of course it’s one of those Dynasty punks! I knew it the whole time. Now we just need to find out which punk it is exactly!
(The masked man takes the blackened skull mask off his face to reveal himself as…)
Gavin Kirkland: What the hell… But why?
DeadPrez: It’s… IT’S CHRISTIAN DEMARCO! WHAT THE HELL IS HE DOING ON SHOWDOWN!?!?!
(Christian DeMarco rips off his Red Dynasty t-shirt to expose a brand new Blue Showdown T-shirt underneath as the crowd erupts.)
(Christian DeMarco digs in his pockets and pulls out a lighter begins stomping on the ripped up Dynasty T-shirt before finally setting fire to it as Ryan Wilson smiles and nods his head in approval)
Deadprez: Well that is certainly one way to make an entrance! Welcome to ShowDown Christian DeMarco!
Gavin Kirkland: I KNEW THAT SUPERKICK LOOKED FAMILIAR :skip:
Eve: .. Sure you did Gavin… anyway, what a way to debut on Showdown for Christian DeMarco! Hopefully we get more insight on this in the coming weeks!
(Commercial break promoting Territorial Invasion and the War Games Match!)
(‘If Ya Smell’ by Adam Massacre hits as Woogieman steps out of the entrance and looks out onto the cheering crowd}
Gavin Kirkland: What does this guy want?
(The Woogieman begins to walk down the ramp, entering the ring with the Big Boogie Bhampionship over his shoulder and sunglasses on his face as well as a microphone already in his hand.)
Deadprez: Well if you hush, I think he’s about to tell us.
The Woogieman: Cut my music. Cut my music. Cut it!
(His music stops ubruptly as Woogieman looks around at the socially distancing crowd in the performance center)
The Woogieman: Last week I faced Consuela Rose Ava in this very ring, and we tore the house down! And due to unfortunate circumstances- the Woog lost.
(The crowd boos loud enough to make it seem like the entire arena was packed full.)
The Woogieman: No. No. No. No. No. The Woog isn’t out here because he feels as if the match he lost was unjust- see after that bell rang and the match was over The Woog got up and walked to the back to see the whole thing play out from the beginning. And that’s when it hit me.
(The Woogieman pauses, looking around at the crowd who are waiting on his every word.)
Woogieman: THAT’S WHEN IT HIT ME! When I, The Woogieman, made my way to the ring, I wasn’t announced as…THEE BIG BOOGIE BHAMPION. No Ms. Romano…Gina…you made The Woog seem like I was no better than Ronan Malosi, our resident Applebees server! You made The Woog seem like he was just another Maxwell, trotting around in the back with no chance of Gold in his future, let alone already A CHAMPION!!! And while I’m sure that wasn’t your intention, sweetheart, I don’t blame you for the misunderstanding!
(Gina Romano smiles from her seat, slightly blushing that the Woogieman is talking straight to her.)
The Woogieman: You go on EAW’s Website and what do you see? You see the PURE Championship…you see the New Breed Championship. You see Bronson Daniels, Serena Bennett, Jamie O’Hara…
The Woogieman: What don’t you see? You don’t see The Woog’s face. You don’t even see his beautiful Big Boogie Bhampionship- and that…that just doesn’t sit right with me.
Crowd: Woo-gie! Woo-gie! Woo-gie!
The Woogieman: It doesn’t sit right with me that MY Big Boogie Bhampionship isn’t as respected as Consuela Rose Ava’s Interwire Championship or even Jamie O’Hara’s Answers World Championship! I REGAINED THIS BELT IN THE MOST EXCRUCIATING MATCH IN ALL THREE DAYS OF PAIN FOR PRIDE!
The Woogieman: And still…STILL… I HAVE YET TO GET THE PROPER RESPECT I DESERVE! THIS BHAMPIONSHIP HAS STILL YET TO RECEIVE THE PROPER RESPECT IT DESERVES! IT HAS YET TO BEEN LABELED WITH THE MAGNIFICANCE THAT IT UPHOLDS!!!
(The Woogieman lowers his sunglasses and raises his Big Boogie Bhampionship in the air for the audience and Elitist in the back to see)
The Woogieman: So I have a proposition for ANY Elitist in the back. Next Week, I’m issuing an open challenge to anyone who feels they are man enough…nay…Elite enough…to come take my Big Boogie Bhampionship from me. I’m a fighting champion and I want the entire world to see what I already know- that there is no one better in a big match setting, than the Woog.
(The Woogieman lowers the Big Boogie Bhampionship and places it back over his shoulder before completely taking off his sunglasses to continue speaking.)
The Woogieman: And to whoever decides to accept my open challenge for next week, please do realize- you are stepping in the ring with THE GREAT ONE!
(‘If Ya Smell’ by Adam Massare hits as Woogieman drops the mic as the crowd pops again. He slowly exits the ring and walks back up the ramp with his Big Boogie Bhampionship.)
Eve: Well…that was interesting.
( The camera’s following The Woogieman as he walks through the curtains, before cutting to commercial.)
(A commercial for Camp Showdown Lake Tours runs across the screen, highlighting the Lake…the Cabins…and even kids games.)
(We come back from the quick commercial and we find ourself in the back, looking at The Woogieman walking backstage where he’s met by Showdown General Manager, Ryan Wilson.)
The Woogieman: What in the blue hell do you want, Opie?
Ryan Wilson: I saw your little speech out there tonight, and I just want you to know I feel your disdain ONE HUNDRED percent! You are a champion…well… kind of… and you deserve to be treated as such. So, I’ve done you a favor. I’ve gone ahead and granted your request to issue an open challenge for your ‘Big Boogie Bhampionship’ next week.
(The Woogieman shifts the Big Boogie Bhampionship title on his shoulder and smirks.)
The Woogieman: It’s about damn time, Ron Weasly. You’ve done something good for this brand. for once.
Ryan Wilson: However…
(Ryan Wilson smirks his devilish little smirk.)
Ryan Wilson: While I have decided to grant your request for an open challenge to defend your “Bhampionship” for next weeks show…I think it best for you to know now, the match will be a hardcore match. Which MEANS anything goes… ‘Woog’. So…best of luck to you and whoever decides to challenge you.
(Ryan Wilson smacks the Big Boogie Bhampionship twice and then walks away laughing.)
The Woogieman: Did he just touch my Bhampionship?
(The Woogieman turns his head and watches Ryan walk away, in disgust.)
The Woogieman: What a tool.
(Camera cuts back to the ring with Gina Romano in the middle of the ring.)
Gina Romano: Our next match is for one fall and is the MAIN EVENT OF THE EVENING!!!
Gina Romano: Introducing first, on commentary, from Oakland, California…weighing in at two-hundred and thirty pounds…The Inevitable…LETHAL CONSEEEQUUEEEENCEEEESSSS!
(‘Tougher Colder Killer’ by El-P featuring Killer Mike & Despot begins to blare over the loudspeakers. Lethal Consequences steps out of the back and instantly just starts walking down the ramp, not even paying any attention to the rain of boos coming down onto him.)
Eve: This ought to be interesting.
(LC makes his way around the ringside area with a smirk on his face as walks over and grabs an empty chair and puts on a set of headphones as ‘Tougher Colder Killer’ fades out and LC joins commentary)
Gavin Kirkland: Welcome to our-
Lethal Consequences: Ye ok, I’m here I get it. Don’t need to shower me with praise. :dave:
Gina Romano: And our FIRST Elitist…hailing from Detroit, Michigan….weighing in at two-hundred and twenty-five pounds…The XTREME CLASSIC…JUSTINNNNN WIIIIIINNNNDDDDGAAAAAAATTTTTEEE!!!
(Fans pop loudly as ‘Smoke & Drive’ by Machine Gun Kelly pumps out of the speakers, filling the arena. Justin Windgate steps out of the back and looks out to the crowd with a smirk on his face)
Eve: And here comes the former New Breed Champion!
Lethal Consequences: Look at this absolute degenerate, someone who has downgraded himself to smoke the Devil’s Lettuce, could never be me.
(Justin Windgate walks down to the ring, up the stairs and enters the ring through the middle ropes. He stands in the middle of the ring and looks around at the decent size socially-distanced crowd. His music slowly fades out.)
Gina Romano: And his opponent…
Gavin Kirkland: Here we go!
Gina Romano: …from Los Angeles, California…weighing in at one-hundred and ninety pounds…he is the Ascended Master…and YOUR E-A-W WORLD ANSWER CHAMPION…JAMIEEE OOOOOOOOOOO’HARRRRRRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!
(Despite the low number of fans, the arena explodes in cheers as ‘Kashmir’ by Led Zeppelin begins to echo through the crowd. Jamie O’Hara steps out of the back as he looks around holding the Answers World Championship around his shoulder. He looks down at it before making his way down the ramp and to the ring)
Deadprez: Jamie O’Hara seems deadset on making a statement heading into Territorial Invasion especially making himself known to his opponent who is sitting right next to us.
Lethal Consequences: It’s Lethal Consequences to you, let it ring. Jamie got nothing on me, NOTHING! Nothing to fret whatsoever, win or lose, calm, clear, collective mindset.
(Jamie walks down to the ring and makes his way up the steel steps and into the ring as he climbs up to the top rope and looks around at the crowd for a moment, taking his title off his waist and jumping off the top rope as ‘Kashmir’ fades out and he makes his way to his corner before the Ref signals for the bell)
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Gavin Kirkland: Jamie and Justin both lunge forward and lock up quickly. Justin is trying to put as much of his height and weight advantage into this as he is trying to push down on the Champ. Jamie pushes back and it seems both men are battling on equal ground again. Justin lets go with his right hand…AND SLAPS JAMIE O’HARA!!! Jamie lets gof Justin’s left hand as his eyes seem to widen in disbelief.
Eve: He…just slapped the Champion? Really?
Lethal Consequences: What do you expect from some smoked-out loser?
Deadprez: Justin pulls back and swings, this time with a closed fist…BUT JAMIE DUCKS UNDERNEATH! Justin turns partially from his momentum…Jamie grabs him around the waist…SUPLEX! BUT NO, WINDGATE LANDS ON HIS FEET!!! Jamie turns around…DROPKICK by Windgate Four-Twenty! Jamie stumbles back into the ropes! Justin quickly gets to his feet, charges the Answers Champ…but Jamie ducks and back body drops Justin over the ropes. NO! Windgate lands on the apron. He grabs the ropes and springboards his way onto the top rope…he jumps…MOONSAULT BUT JAMIE GETS OUT OF THE WAY!!!
Eve: Windgate lands on his feet!!! Justin turns around and Jamie is staring daggers through him. Justin charges forward…SUPERKI-NO! JAMIE GRABBED JUSTIN’S LEG AND IS JUST HOLDING IT.
Lethal Consequences: Who the hell tries that baby shit move this early?
Deadprez: O’Hara grips onto Justin’s leg hard…DRAGON SCREW LEG WHIP! Jamie readjusts himself and grabs Justin’s legs…he’s going to try for a Texas Cloverleaf! But Justin manages to shimmy his way to the ropes and grabs onto them, causing the ref to force the Champ to let go.
Lethal Consequences: Piece of shit O’Hara gets to his feet and steps back from Cannibisseur Windgate…giving the poor boy some distance to get some fresh air into those lungs. Justin slowly rubs his left knee as he stands back up to his feet.
Eve: Jamie O’Hara walks over and grabs Justin by the back of the neck and the arm…he spins Justin around…and WHIPS him into the corner. Jamie charges at Justin…HIGH knee to the jaw of Justin. The Champion has WIndgate in the corner, his arms pushing Justin’s head down. Jamie attacks with a knee to the face…and another…and another…AND ANOTHER!!! O’Hara steps out of the corner and Windgate stumbles forward, falling onto his knees.
Deadprez: Jamie steps back and watches as Justin falls down into a sitting position. He runs and bounces off of the ropes, coming back at the fallen Windgate…PENALTY KICK!!! Jamie drops for the pin!
Gavin Kirkland: JUSTIN WITH THE KICKOUT!!!
Lethal Consequences: I’d like to see O’Hara think he could put me down with a little middle-school soccer shit kick like that. He should be embarrassed with himself.
Gavin Kirkland: Jamie climbs to his feet and then pulls Justin up to his own wobbly legs. He grips Justin by the arm…whips him into the ropes…but Justin grabs the ropes! Thinking on his toes! He turns around…
Eve: BUT THE ANSWERS CHAMP COMES FLYING FORWARD AND SLAMS INTO HIM WITH A SHOTGUN KICK, SENDING WINDGATE THROUGH THE ROPES TO THE OUTSIDE IN FRONT OF OUR TABLE!!!
Deadprez: Justin trying to recover quickly as he grabs the announcers desk and climbs up to his feet to try to gain some ground but it seems Jamie is already planning to make his next move!
Eve: Jamie bounces off the ropes in the ring…comes running towards us…RUNNING SENTON OVER THE ROPES…BUT JUSTIN WINDGATE CATCHES HIM…AND POWERBOMBS HIM ONTO THE OUTSIDE FLOOR!!! Justin climbs up onto the apron as the Champ lays motionless on the floor. Windgate looks down at him…takes a running start…jumps onto the 2nd turnbuckle from the outside…MOONSAULT TO THE OUTSIDE!!! HE JUST CRUSHED THE CHAMPION!!!
Gavin Kirkland: Justin crawls over to the ring and pulls himself up using the apron. He climbs up onto it and rolls in under the ropes.
Ref (Off mic): ONE!
Lethal Consequences: You hear that, Jamie? That’s the countdown on your Championship reign with me walking right behind you!
(LC kicks his feet up and tilts his head to watch Jamie struggle to get to his feet with a smirk.)
Lethal Consequences: What’s wrong buddy?
Lethal Consequences: Something got you down?
(Jamie manages to grab the announcers desk and pull himself up to his feet. He eyes LC for a moment momentarily as he gives a simple shake of his head in response to his antics)
Deadprez: Jamie pulls himself up and slides into the ring. Justin runs over and LAYS a boot to the back of Jamie’s head! Jamie grabs the back of his head, but is still trying to get up. Justin grabs the ropes above Jamie…slingshots himself onto the 2nd rope…bounces up…AND COMES DOWN WITH A KNEE TO THE MIDDLE OF Jamie’S BACK!!! THE CHAMP IS GRABBING AT HIS BACK, KICKING HIS LEGS IN PAIN!!!
Lethal Consequences: He better get used to pain. When I get my hands on his little bitch ass, I’m going to make him regret everything. He’s going to think beating Mr. DEDEDE was a fucking cake-walk.
Eve: Windgate pulls the Champ up to his feet while Jamie is still grabbing at his back. Justin grabs him around the head…runs over to a corner…up the turnbuckle…RUN IT UP!!! RUN IT UP!!! JUSTIN GRABS THE OUTSTRETCHED LEGS OF JAMIE O’HARA!!!
Deadprez: NO! JAMIE O’HARA WITH THE KICKOUT!!
Lethal Consequences: :dave:
Deadprez: Justin rolls off the Champ and stands to his feet. He grabs Jamie and pulls him to his feet. Justin grips onto his arm and WHIPS him into the corner! He walks over to O’Hara as he grimaces at his injured back. Windgate holds up his right hand, flattened out…AND SMACKS Jamie ACROSS THE CHEST!!! Justin pulls back…ANOTHER SLAP ACROSS THE CHEST!!! LOOK AT THE WELTS FORMING ON Jamie’S CHEST! Justin pulls back…BUT THEN HE EXTENDS AN ARM TO Jamie AND LETHAL CONSEQUENCES…FLIPPING THEM BOTH OFF!!!
Lethal Consequences: You’re lucky I have a bigger fish to fry, piss-ant!
Gavin Kirkland: AND JUSTIN SLAPS Jamie’S CHEST ONE MORE TIME!!! Justin backs away as the Champ stumbles forward and falls to the mat onto his back. His chest is RED with welts.
Eve: Justin runs to the opposite corner…turns…pretends to smoke two blunts…
Gavin Kirkland: No wonder he and Bronson got along so well at Camp Showdown!
Eve: …runs towards the fallen O’Hara…SMOKE BOMB!!! SMOKE BOMB ONTO JAMIE O’HARA!!!
Eve: Justin with the hook of the leg…
Gavin Kirkland: KICKOUT!!!
Lethal Consequences: Disappointing really.
Deadprez: Justin back up to his feet, his hands on his head. His mind is probably running on how to keep Jamie down. Justin turns around and looks down at O’Hara…and it looks like he…is starting to stalk him.
Gavin Kirkland: This could be it right here! Justin is watching as O’Hara is using the ropes to climb up to his feet. Justin crouches slightly, wiggling his fingers. The Answers World Champion gets up straight…he turns around…JUSTIN WINDGATE WITH A CLASSIC ENDING!!! NO!!! Jamie PUSHES JUSTIN AWAY BEFORE HE COULD LAND IT! Justin stumbles forward, but Jamie reaches out and grabs him around the waist…SUP-NO! VISUAL IDENTITY!!! VISUAL IDENTITY!!! Jamie grabs at his back in pain…
Eve: Jamie slowly reaches over and hooks Justin’s leg!
Eve: This match has been maxing out from the get-go! Both these men have started with all they have, but neither want to give up that easy win! It’s going to take a LOT for one of them to pull off the victory.
Lethal Consequences: A Lot this alot that, the only thing that matters is the result. Not just the result from tonight, but maybe the next full moon, which comes when I beat Jamie O’Hara, pretty simple right? Yeah, that’s the only thing that matters here bud…
Gavin Kirkland: Jamie up to his feet, followed quickly by Justin Windgate. Both men just standing there, breathing heavily, staring at each other.
Deadprez: Justin charges Jamie…BUT Jamie WITH A HUGE BOOT TO THE FACE!!! Justin stumbles back as Jamie runs and bounces off the ropes! Jamie comes back as Justin with a boot of his own…NO, JUSTIN FAKED Jamie OUT AND GOES FOR A LEG SWEEP BUT THE CHAMP DOES A FRONT FLIP OVER THE ATTEMPT! Jamie lands on his feet, turns to Justin…SUPERKICK! Justin stumbles back and bounces off the ropes…BUT COMES FLYING FORWARD AND ROCKS Jamie WITH A JUMPING CLOTHESLINE!!! Both men land on their knees…Justin up, grabs Jamie and picks him into the air for a vertical suplex…Jamie’s feet pointing at the ceiling…BUT THE CHAMP TWISTS AROUND AND HITS WINDGATE WITH A NECKBREAKER!!! Justin stumbles around aimlessly, while Jamie runs and jumps onto the second rope, jumping backwards…BUT JUSTIN WINDGATE JUMPS INTO THE AIR AND GRABS HIM!!! BOTH MEN LAND ON THE GROUND AND JUSTIN IS TRYING TO GET Jamie INTO A CHICKEN WING!!! Jamie manages to break his legs free and rolls backwards over Justin, getting himself out of the move. But Jamie wraps his arms around Justin’s neck and stands up, pulling him up to his feet and holding him around the neck with his body…his head facing the staring into the lights. Jamie uses all his might and flips Justin up for a piledriver…BUT JUSTIN USES THE MOMENTUM AND GOES OVER Jamie’S SHOULDER, PICKING THE CHAMPION UP FOR A PILEDRIVER!!!
Gavin Kirkland: THIS COULD BE IT!!!
Deadprez: Jamie pushes off of Justin’s legs…AND USES THE MOMENTUM TO HOOK HIS FEET AROUND JUSTIN’S HEAD AND FLIPS WINDGATE OVER WITH A HURRICANRANA!!! Both men quick up to their feet, Justin charging…LUNGING UPPERCUT SENDS O’HARA INTO A three-sixty spin onto his knees! Both men back up…AND Jamie WITH A SPINNING BACK HEEL KICK!!! BOTH MEN LAY ON THE MAT AFTER THAT AMAZING BACK AND FORTH!!!
CROWD: JA-MIE, JUS-TIN!!! CLAP, CLAP, CLAP-CLAP-CLAP!!! JA-MIE, JUS-TIN!!! CLAP, CLAP, CLAP-CLAP-CLAP!!!
Lethal Consequences: Are we really supposed to be impressed by this dog and pony show?
Eve: Are we supposed to be impressed by your short fuse and foul mouth?
Lethal Consequences: You keep talking girl, I’ll pass on the little petty arguments since that’s not my flow, not my cup of tea.
Eve: So be it.
Deadprez: Both men have slowly made it back to standing upright. Justin Windgate walks over and grabs Jamie by the arm, whipping him towards the ropes. Jamie hits the ropes, bounces off of them and comes charging back at Justin. Justin drops down for the back body drop, but Jamie stops…BICYCLE KNEE TO THE FACE OF WINDGATE!!! Justin falls to a knee. Jamie goes running back to the opposite ropes…he comes charging back, BASEMENT DROPKICK SENDING JUSTIN THROUGH THE ROPES TO THE OUTSIDE!!!
Eve: Jamie slides to the outside and picks Justin up to his feet…but he is just STARING at Lethal Consequences who is sitting here ringside with us.
Lethal Consequences: Make a move, bitch…I dare you.
Eve: Jamie grabs Justin’s arm and spins around behind him…GALACTIC BUSTER!!! JAMIE JUST KILLED JUSTIN ON THE OUTSIDE WITH THE GALACTIC BUSTER!!!
Lethal Consequences: You think you’re a bad man? Come and get some!
(Lethal stands to his feet, holding his arms out trying to get the attention of the Answers World Champion. Jamie turns his head to look at LC as he only just eyes him as the only thing he responds with to LC is a simple scoff)
Lethal Consequences: What’s wrong, boy? You scared of a REAL challenge?
Gavin Kirkland: Jamie shaking his head once more and turns back to Justin. He helps him back to his feet, pushing him towa-Windgate with an elbow to the gut of O’Hara! He grabs Jamie and WHIPS him into the ring post! Jamie O’Hara stumbles back…Justin grabs him around the head…takes a running start…RUNS UP THE PLEXIGLASS DIVIDERS SEPARATING US FROM THE CROWD…RUN IT UP!!! RUN IT UP!!! JUSTIN WINDGATE JUST HIT JAMIE O’HARA WITH ANOTHER RUN IT UP!!! IF THEY WERE IN THE RING THIS WOULD BE OVER!!!
Lethal Consequences: See…distractions, can’t let that shit get in your way.
(Lethal sits back down, but his eyes glance over at Gina Romano who is holding the EAW Answers World Championship belt.)
Eve: Both men are laying on the ground…injured to some degree. If Justin can win this, this could catapult him even higher into the Showdown standings…while Jamie O’Hara wants to put a little fear into the number one contender for his title.
Lethal Consequences: That ain’t gonna happen.
Gavin Kirkland: Justin is slowly pulling himself back up, grabbing at his back after that Galactic Buster a little bit ago. Jamie himself is starting to get up to his knees, surely feeling the effects of that Run It Up! Justin stumbles over to the apron and leans on it, while Jamie gets to his feet, but stumbles back until his back hits the plexiglass.
Eve: Justin pulls himself up onto the apon and steps halfway through the ropes, looking down at Jamie O’Hara. What is he doing?
Deadprez: Justin quickly ducks into the ring. He takes a few steps back, bounces off the ropes…runs over towards us…JUMPS UP ONTO THE ROPES…LAUNCHES TOWARDS JAMIE…DIVING CROSSBODY…BUT JAMIE O;HARA CATCHES HIM AND STUMBLES BACK INTO THE GLASS!!! He runs forward…AND SLAMS JUSTIN BACK FIRST INTO THE RING POST!!! Jamie steps forward and puts the injured Justin Windgate on the apron. Justin slowly sits up as Jamie climbs up onto the apron himself. O’Hara charges forward…PENALTY KICK AND JUSTIN WINDGATE FALLS DOWN TO THE OUTSIDE MATS!!!
Gavin Kirkland: The Champ enters in through the ropes and looks very winded as the ref begins the count on The Xtreme Classic.
Ref (Off mic): ONE!
Eve: Justin is slowly beginning to rise to his feet clearly that kick straight to his head took a hell of a lot out of him as he’s trying his best to recover as quickly as possible.
Eve: Windgate manages to grab the apron as he’s slowly beginning to drag himself up to his feet as the Ref continues to count, who knows where this might go!
Deadprez: BUT WINDGATE MANAGES TO ROLL BACK INTO THE RING AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE! WITH A BURST OF ENERGY BEFORE THE COUNTOUT, THE MATCH CONTINUES!
Lethal Consequences: Would’ve been a bit stupid if he didn’t make it if you get me.
Gavin Kirkland: Jamie grabs Justin by the arm and helps him up to his feet. Jamie with a QUICK kick to Justin’s midsection, causing him to double over. O’Hara goes running…climbs up the turnbuckle…turns…jumps…GENKI CANNON!!! GENKI CANNON!!! Jamie drops down and hooks Justin’s leg.
Lethal Consequences: KICK OUT by Justin Windgate! Man! What a GREATTTTT job by both of these competitors, hell let’s just give them a damn participation award, wooooo! Clap it up guys! Wooo!
Eve: The Genki Cannon has taken out plenty of people in the past, how did Justin Windgate fight on!
Deadprez: But this isn’t just anybody…it’s Justin Windgate.
Gavin Kirkland: Jamie is smirking as he sits up.
Eve: Justin rolls over onto his side as Jamie makes his way up to his feet, looking down at Windgate. These two are giving it all and leaving NOTHING on the table.
Lethal Consequences: Well it is the Main Event. We don’t have some low level bullshit garbage segment after this like Ronan Malosi sucking his own dick because he beat Ryan Wilson. It’s like Jesus H. Christ, who HASN’T beaten Ryan Wilson.
Gavin Kirkland: Justin Windgate climbing to his feet as Jamie O’Hara is still just watching him. I’m sure Jamie’s mind is going in circles right now. He’s hit Justin with the Galactic Buster AND the Genki Cannon…but the former New Breed Champion will not stay down.
Eve: In all fairness, Justin has hit Jamie with a Smoke Bomb and TWO…count that TWO, Run it Ups. And Jamie isn’t going down without a fight either.
Lethal Consequences: One good ole’ LCR and I’d have both of these boys in a hospital bed for a week.
Deadprez: Justin is up to his feet and both men are staring at each other. And now…Jamie points at Justin and is clapping for him?
Eve: Probably as a sign of honor. He’s looking at the crowd, having them clap as well. Both Windgate and O’Hara have been impressive tonight. Jamie turns his back to Justin…AND JUSTIN CHARGES FORWARD! Jamie turns at the last moment and Justin stops…grabbing him by the arm and WHIPPING him into the corner. Jamie lands chest first into the turnbuckle. Windgate comes charging again, but Jamie jumps up onto the top turnbuckle…BUT JUSTIN STOPS HIMSELF…grabs the ropes and slingshots himself up to the top rope. He jumps, lands on Jamie’s shoulders…REVERSE HURRICANRANA OFF THE TOP ROPE…BUT JAMIE LANDS ON HIS FEET!!! HE LANDS ON HIS FEET!!!
Deadprez: Jamie turns towards Justin who is using the ropes to pull himself up. Justin finally turns around…ENZIGURI!!! A wobbly Windgate leans against the ropes…and Jamie runs, using the ropes on the other side of the ring to give him momentum…BUT IS MET BY A SPINNING ENZIGURI BY THE XTREME CLASSIC!!! Jamie down to one knee as Justin jumps up and grabs Jamie around the neck, he lifts him into a vertical suplex, but Jamie grabs onto Justin’s leg, stopping him from lifting him up. Justin let’s go and so does Jamie…BUT JUSTIN CHANGES STRATEGY AND GRABS JAMIE BY THE SIDES OF THE HEADING AND PLANTS HIM INTO THE GROUND WITH A SITOUT FACEBUSTER!!! Justin flips the Champ over and covers him.
Gavin Kirkland: O’Hara with the kickout! Justin jumps to his feet as Jamie lay there. He hobbles over to the turnbuckle and climbs to the top rope. He is measuring up Jamie O’Hara…he jumps…X-FACTOR!!! X-FACTOR!!! X-FA-NO!!! JAMIE MOVED OUT OF THE WAY AND JUSTIN SLAMMED FACE FIRST INTO THE MAT!!! HE COULD HAVE BROKEN HIS NOSE! HE COULD HAVE BROKEN HIS TEETH! HE COULD HAVE BROKEN SOMETHING!!!
CROWD: JA-MIE, JUS-TIN!!! CLAP, CLAP, CLAP-CLAP-CLAP!!! JA-MIE, JUS-TIN!!! CLAP, CLAP, CLAP-CLAP-CLAP!!!
Deadprez: This crowd is really enjoying this match.
CROWD: JA-MIE, JUS-TIN!!! CLAP, CLAP, CLAP-CLAP-CLAP!!! JA-MIE, JUS-TIN!!! CLAP, CLAP, CLAP-CLAP-CLAP!!!
Eve: Both men are climbing back to their feet, using one hand to grab the ropes and using the other to grab their injured faces. Both men stumble into the middle of the ring. Justin with a left hook…Jamie with a right…Justin with a left…Jamie right a right. Justin throws another left, but Jamie blocks it and ROCKS HIM with an elbow to the side of the head. Justin stumbles and Jamie charges, pushing him into a corner. O’Hara pulls back…SLAP TO THE CHEST! AND ANOTHER! AND ANOTHER! AND THEN HE UNLEASHES WITH THE MACHINE GUN BACKHAND CHOPS!!! Justin drops to a sitting position, trying to use his arms to block the chops…but Jamie is GOING OFF!!!
Deadprez: Something seems to have awoken in the Champ.
Lethal Consequences: Took him long enough. He’s ‘The Champ’…he’s supposed to be able to breeze through this small time chumps.
Eve: Small time chumps? Justin Windgate is a former National Elite Champion…
Lethal Consequences: Don’t care. Can we hurry this match up? I’ve got shit to do.
Eve: Jamie walks over and grabs Justin, pulling him back up to his feet…BUT JUSTIN ROCKS HIM WITH A MASSIVE UPPERCUT THAT SENDS THE CHAMP REELING BACK!!! WIndgate advances onto Jamie, but Jamie sidesteps him…BUT WIndgate grabs him and hip tosses him to the side. The Champ is back up to his feet…CLASSIC ENDING!!! CLASSIC ENDING!!! NO!!! JAMIE SLIPS OUT AND PUSHES Windgate away. He runs up behind Justin, grabs around the waist…holding onto his wrists…lifts him up…STARDUST BREAKER!!! STARDUST BREAKER!!! THE CHAMP CONNECTS AND WINDGATE IS OUT COLD ON THE MAT!!! THIS IS IT FOLKS! IT HAS TO BE IT!!! Jamie drops for the cover and hooks Windgate’s leg…
Lethal Consequences: Tired of this shit I swear. :dave:
Deadprez: Lethal Consequences has thrown off his headset and slides into the ring with Gina Romano’s metal chair and the EAW Answers World Championship.
Deadprez: Lethal drops the title and pulls the chair back…
Deadprez: AND HE JUST BRANDED JAMIE O’HARA WITH THE METAL CHAIR!!!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Gavin Kirkland: Jamie rolls off of Windgate, grabbing at that already injured back. Lethal positions the chair…AND SPIKES IT INTO JAMIE’S FOREHEAD, BUSTING OPEN THE CHAMPION!!!
Gina Romano: And your winner by disqualification…JAMIE OOOOOOOOOOOOOO’HAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRAAAAAAAA!!!
Eve: The ref is yelling at Lethal Consequences, but the number one contender has the chair gripped tightly. He pulls it back…AND SLAMS IT INTO THE RIBS OF JAMIE O’HARA!!! HE IS DESTROYING THE CHAMP! SOMEONE COME STOP THIS!!!
Deadprez: Lethal Consequences drops the chair, but picks up the EAW Answers World Championship. He bends down at Jamie, holding it tightly to his face.
Lethal Consequences (Off mic): How come they always think it’s losers like you who bring asses to the seats and money to their pockets, when it’s people like me who people pay to see. IT’S PEOPLE LIKE ME THEY WANT TO CHEER FOR!!! IT’S PEOPLE LIKE ME THEY WANT AS THEIR CHAMPIONS!!! WHY DON’T YOU UNDERSTAND THAT? WHY CAN’T THEY UNDERSTAND THAT? TELL ME!!!
Deadprez: Lethal throws the belt over his shoulder and stands to his feet, picking Jamie up to his feet as well. He scoops him up onto his shoulders…GTJ!!! GTJ!!! JAMIE O’HARA IS BUSTED OPEN AND IS LAYING FACE DOWN IN A GROWING POOL OF HIS OWN BLOOD!!! ME NEED THE MEDICS! SOMEONE CALL THE MEDICS! Jamie looks really badly hurt and someone needs to come help him before Lethal Consequences tries anything else!
(The scene pulls away and shows the chaos in the ring, with Lethal Consequences looking down at Jamie. He turns his head to the crowd as the camera zooms in to just show him. He then proceeds to remove the EAW Answers World Championship from his shoulder, rub off a smug on the belt, and then hold it into the air.)
(The fans boo loudly as our last shot is of Lethal Consequences holding the title into the air with a smirk on his face.)
(EAW logo buzzes.)
