(EAW intro plays.)
(RECAP: The recap begins by showing highlights of the triple threat match featuring three of Showdown’s rising talents, Viktor Stone, Lance Blackfyre and Santo Muerte. It concludes with Viktor connecting with The Branches of Sins on Santo and Lance trying to get to the ring, but it is too late. Viktor celebrates in the ring, but is attacked from behind by Dynasty’s Eric Havoc. Viktor gets nailed by the Chaos Impact. Santo comes to Viktor’s aid, but Eric connects with another Chaos Impact before proceeding to stomp the living hell out of Santo. Viktor comes to fight back, but Eric superkicks him. Eric is relishing in him beating up two of Showdowns’ talent, but when he turns around, he is met with Lance Blackfyre who gets his hand on Eric’s throat, looking for the Titanic Plunge, but gets taken down by two more of Dynasty’s talents, Mike Gamino and Ronan Malosi. The three Dynasty Elitists take down Lance, but Lance fights back as Eric exits the ring. Lance speaks Mike in half before picking up Ronan for Fears Origin, but Eric stops him with raming a sledgehammer onto his stomach before connecting with a Chaos Impact onto the sledgehammer. The scene ends with Eric, Mike and Ronan standing in the ring with Viktor, Santo and Lance scattered around.)
(It transitions to Showdown General Manager Jenny Punk on the phone as it looks like she is trying to get ahold of Dynasty General Manager StarrStan about why his talent has laid out members of her roster. Viktor comes into her office and demands to know what transpired in the. It was supposed to be his moment, but now, people are only going to talk about what Eric Havoc did. Jenny states that if Starr refuse to get back to her, she is going to take matters into her own hands. Viktor says whatever Jenny has planned, he wants part of it.)
(It goes forward to Harlow Reichert being interviewed backstage by Kyra Phillips. We are given insight about what Harlow is feeling going into her title match at Territorial Invasion. Harlow states that she’s not nervous about this match whatsoever. Mark’s attempts to rattle her haven’t been successful. She’s not going to fall apart because Mark has insulted her. Harlow questions if this is supposed to be our PURE Champion? Is Mark the champion that EAW can be proud to represent pure wrestling? Harlow claims that Mark can feel that his title reign is slipping away and at Territorial Invasion, she is going to prove that Mark isn’t worthy of being PURE Champion? Suddenly, it goes to a steel chair being thrown at her direction. It doesn’t hit Harlow or Kyra, but it is revealed that Mark Michaels threw the steel chair at her and said that he got something from her and that was a scared Harlow. Harlow claims that she was thrown off guard. Mark was hoping that Harlow would fight back and see that fire in her. He claims that he is going to take down another one of “their” heroes before allowing Harlow the opportunity to hit him. Harlow walks away from the scene.)
(It goes to The Visual Prophet who takes on one-half of the Unified Tag Team Champions, Constance Blevins. Highlights of the match are shown as Viz manages to get the victory at eleven minutes, eleven seconds. It transitions to Mr. DEDEDE in his trailer, who had just watched the match as he tries to get ahold of his wife, Kassidy Heart. He hears a knock and it happens to be his lovely wife with a pumpkin spice latte in her hands. DEDEDE states that he is going to need Kassidy in his corner for his match in case Constance Blevins does anything funny to help Minerva out. He also surprises Kassidy with a matte black laced mirkwood eye mask and after some convincing from DEDEDE, Kassidy agrees to wear it to the ring. Kassidy goes to use the bathroom where she is stopped by Cameron Ella Ava who asks if Kassidy is already. Kassidy responds that she is and if she wasn’t, it would be none of Cameron’s business. The two talk about Mr. DEDEDE and Cameron is seen giving her negative thoughts on her marriage. Cameron tries to relate with Kassidy with a previous relationship on her and believes that Kassidy is making a mistake. Kassidy doesn’t believe that she is making a mistake and tells Cameron to mind her own business. Cameron repeats that Kassidy is making a huge mistake and hopes that she can live with the mistake before leaving. )
(It goes forward to Jenny Cien going up against Felix Hartley. Highlights of their match are shown. We get the wonderful commentary from Kai Zolomon and Archimedes J. Manson and it shows Jenny closing in on a victory before “Hell on Heels” by The Pistol Annies playing through the speakers. This causes Jenny to get off the turnbuckle and wait for Kensingten Calhoun-Astor to come out, but Felix takes advantage of the distraction by delivering with #BadBitch and getting the victory. Quickly after, the three New Breed competitors begin clashing with one another. Kai knees Archimedes in the jaw before throwing him in the ring. Felix connects with Ass, Class & Sass on Kai before exiting the ring and raising the New Breed Championship high in the air. )
(Chris Elite and Ahren Fournier are seen in the ring. The two men talk about how people write them off after big losses. They talk about common talking points used against them. Chris’ World Heavyweight Championship reign and Ahren’s EAW Championship reign and needing Kassidy Heart to help him keep the title. They talk down on anyone who doubted that they would be able to last as long as they have as a team. They talk down on anyone that mocks them and don’t take them seriously. If it means to bring pride to Showdown and for them to stop writing them off as nothing, they enter themselves into the War Games Match at Territorial Invasion. Jamie O’Hara comes out questions why he would consider putting them in his team. Ahren and Chris plead their cases. Chris states that they’re both seeking for something. For Jamie, it’s redemption. For Ahren and Chris, it’s to stop being labeled as “choke artists.” Ahren states that Jamie must be like everyone else who believes that they aren’t worth to be standing in the same ring as him. What gives Jamie the right to judge? Ahren is the man that defeated Jamie on Voltage back in Season 11. Chris is the man that ended Jamie’s record-breaking World Championship reign. Jamie states that when he accepted the role as Team Showdown’s captain, he was going to look for a perfect team and prove that the talent on Showdown can’t be found on the other brands. He’s expecting pure excellence with whoever he puts on his team. He states that for the past few weeks, he has had his eye on the roster and every small detail about them. Jamie states that whenever Ahren and Chris want something, they are not afraid to do everything to attain it. He isn’t looking for lowly contenders to bring into the match. He wants the best. Chris claims he is the best and Ahren claims he’s The GOAT. Jamie states that War Games is no joke and he is looking for men who will be the presence of excellence and have his back before letting Chris and Ahren in the team. The three men shake hands to solidify their alliance.)
(It goes to the main event with Mr. DEDEDE and one-half of the Unified Tag Team Champions, Minerva. Highlights of the match are shown as the clock continues to go down and Minerva just doing whatever she can to stay alive. DEDEDE connects with a spear to Minerva as Constance gets on the apron, but Kassidy Heart yanks Constance off the apron before getting the official to count DEDEDE. The time is up before the three count is made as DEDEDE is pissed. “Another One Bites The Dust” by Queen plays as The Visual Prophet walks out with a huge shit eating grin on his face, thinking of the possibilities that can occur in this match. The recap fades to black.)
(“DNA” by Kendrick Lamar begins to play, cueing Saturday Night Showdown. After the introduction video plays, it pans to ringside as the song continues to play in the background. The fans cheering in the soldout The Verizon Arena in Little Rock, Arkansas hold their various signs up when the camera comes their way.)
(SCREEN BAR — LITTLE ROCK, ARKANSAS!)
(“DNA” continues to play before it pans to Deadprez and Gavin Kirkland in the commentary booth.)
Gavin Kirkland: We are really two weeks away from Territorial Invasion and we are telling the truth this week! Do you see how excited I am for Territorial Invasion? I just want it to be Territorial Invasion right now! For now, welcome to Saturday Night Showdown! I am “Your Girl’s Favorite Commentator”, Gavin Kirkland!
Deadprez: I am Deadprez and I’ve even checked! We are really two weeks from Territorial Invasion! Tonight, we continue to build the anticipation for the event! Our Answers World Championship, Universal Women’s Championship, PURE Championship matches are set in stone! As of last week, our Showdown War Games team is complete thanks to Ahren Fournier and Chris Elite! Speaking of War Games, we have a War Games Preview Match for our main event tonight! Team Showdown’s captain Jamie O’Hara takes on Dynasty’s TLA and Voltage’s Ms. Cash in the Vault, Raven Roberts!
Gavin Kirkland: It should be a fucking crime to have Jamie O’Hara bury the competition two weeks before Territorial Invasion, but who are we to stop him? But, Showdown has an Ace, GOAT and Gawd Given Greatness. What do the other brands have? What does Dynasty have? Serena Bennett? This bitch really? I am shaking right now. :mjlol: What does Voltage have?
Deadprez: Andrea Valentine, Ms. Extreme and Raven Roberts. :lupe:
Gavin Kirkland: Not as good as Jamie O’Hara, but they may be a strong second because of the beautiful and blonde Andrea Valentine!
Deadprez: We hope that Jamie makes Showdown proud tonight. Ahren Fournier wasn’t so lucky as he found himself being pinned by Voltage’s Ms. Extreme last night on Dynasty in the first War Games Preview Match of this weekend! We also hope amazing things from this woman who will be taking on Kassidy Heart for the Universal Women’s Championship! We open things with Cameron Ella Ava who requested some time!
(“ULTRAnumb” by Blue Stahli plays through the speakers as the crowd gives a standing ovation for Cameron Ella Ava. Cameron comes out in a royal blue tracksuit from Fashion Nova while wearing some fresh, white kicks. She smiles at the Showdown crowd who are giving her the wonderful ovation. She sticks her arms out and embraces the crowd.)
Gina Romano: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN…PLEASE WELCOME AT THIS TIME… “THE GODDESS”…CAAAAAMMMMMMEEEEERRRRROOOOOOOONNNNNNN EEEEEELLLLLLLLLLLAAAAAAAA AAAAAAVVVVVAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!
Gavin Kirkland: She looks so good tonight. Why does she gotta be married? :noah:
Deadprez: Cameron Ella Ava has an important match at Territorial Invasion against Kassidy Heart for the Universal Women’s Championship. Last week, we saw a bit of an interaction with them backstage. Cameron had some not so nice things to say about Kassidy and her marriage with the Chairman of the Board and Answers World Champion, Mr. DEDEDE!
Gavin Kirkland: Normally, I encourage people to do what they like, but I think that Cameron Ella Ava may be a little wrong for sticking her nose in Kassidy Heart’s business… I mean…marriage with Mr. DEDEDE! They seem like such an amazing couple! Mr. DEDEDE has been treating Kassidy like the queen she is. Giving her kisses before he goes to work, giving Pumpkin Spice Lattes from Starbucks and probably giving her the d. I mean, you gotta love our giving and supportive chairman. :wow:
Deadprez: You gotta see things from Cameron’s perspective, Gavin. The way that this marriage began isn’t normal at all. Maybe, Cameron sees a bit of herself and the decisions that Kassidy is making and trying to help her out any way possible. Cameron was in a high profile relationship with a former chairman of the board and she doesn’t want to see Kassidy falling down the same path that she did.
Gavin Kirkland: It seems like the more Cameron tries to poke the bear that is Kassidy, it’s going to hit her back. I just hope know Cameron knows what she is getting herself into? :lupe:
(By the time the camera pans to Cameron Ella Ava, she is already in the ring as she is hyping the crowd up. She gets a microphone in her possession as she stands in the middle of the ring. “ULTRAnumb” dies down as the crowd cheering is what is heard. Cameron gives a few moments to think about what she wants to say before speaking.)
Cameron Ella Ava: I’ve been around for a long time. I entered the company when I was twenty-one, and I’ve outlasted MANY men and women throughout my nine-year tenure in EAW. I grew up in the eyes of the business. I learned the ins and outs of this industry, and I became a student of the game. With the series of men and women joining the company and elevating the game, I have done everything in my abilities to make sure that I kept up with the new generation. People like to make bold claims and convince themselves that I can’t “hang” with the Elitists of the modern era. Do you know how many times I heard that statement? Thousands of times and yet, where are they? Not here. Many of the men and women began to gain these giant egos. At some point, they somehow believe that they are more significant than this company, and they can go anywhere else and replicate that success. The moment they heard about the merge happening with REVOLT! Pro Combat, they began to throw their fits. They claimed that people were gonna waltz in and take their “deserving pushes” away from them or that this company was going to sink, which sounded ridiculous then and it does now. However, I looked at this opportunity as a test for me to prove that I can hang with the new competition (if given that opportunity). I watched the first Shitpire (or two) after the merge and no one really stuck out for me. You had Sienna Jade, but people were expecting her to be a big deal. I was more surprised by the blonde next to her. I was having a conversation with a backstage producer, and they told me, “We found Aria Jaxon’s replacement,” and do you know what I said? I said, “No, we didn’t.”
(The crowd begins to boo.)
Cameron Ella Ava: Now hear me out. I didn’t look at Kassidy Heart and see “next Aria Jaxon” written all over her. I said that she was going to be better than what EAW hoped for Aria to become. As much as she may have an issue with me, I see a woman that they can build as the face of the company. I see the same vision that the producers had with me when I debuted on EAW television. They saw another pretty face that they can mold as the next big thing in wrestling. Just like with me, they saw Kassidy Heart as another pretty face. Also, like me, we were able to prove that we are so much more than looks. It didn’t matter how many women joined the company. It didn’t matter how many times I was tossed to the side for some shiny new toy, I was able to keep myself in the spotlight for nine years. I didn’t need to be in a championship match, and yet, people couldn’t stop talking about me. I see a lot of myself on Kassidy. From our ability to put others before ourselves to wearing our emotions on our sleeves to everything else in between, it’s difficult to watch someone make a mistake, and they don’t even see it for themselves. The world is already aware of who my ex-boyfriend is. As much as I try to wipe the stigma of being his ex-girlfriend, I can’t seem to get over what he did to me.
Cameron Ella Ava: Much like Kassidy, I was in a five-year relationship with a man who was once Chairman of the Board. I knew him before he was even trusted in that position, but he was someone I considered my best friend. We were in the independent wrestling scene together, we traveled together, and he became someone I relied on. When we began dating, and I thought it was so amazing to have someone I’ve known for so long, could open to about anything and be dating him. He treated me like a queen, and I thought everything was great. However, the more I dug deep into the relationship, I began to realize that this relationship was toxic. He was known for his mood swings and being mad at me for no reason at all, he would treat all of his friends, co-workers and fans like complete garbage when he had one of his episodes. He would start shit with everyone on sight. When he became Chairman, it became so much worse. He had all the power in the company at his disposal, and I feared that one wrong move, and he could have me blacklisted from the company and every major promotion in the United States. Everyone in the company hated his guts, and he was aware of that. It caused him to be more paranoid. He could drink as much as he wants and… he could fuck as many whores in our home as he wished (even though he still denies this shit even after the evidence began to pile up) because he knew that I wasn’t going to leave him. I had done so on many occasions, but I kept coming back because he had me convinced that no other guy wanted to put up with me. He tried to make it seem like I was the problem and I was being unreasonable. “But, but, but, you did this one small thing, so it cancels out me cheating on you!” ?
Cameron Ella Ava: He was a broken cause, and I kept telling myself that I could fix him. I wanted to believe that I could fix a man who didn’t want to be fixed. I thought him stepping down as Chairman was going to end the issues with us, but it got worse. He still did the same shit he vowed he was going to stop doing. He would claim that he would seek treatment, but never lived up to the expectation. He was a toxic piece of shit, and he was making me toxic as well. I became the one thing that I hated, and it was because I associate myself with someone who may have treated me nice for some time, but he hated everyone else around him. I was the only person he could rely on. It was me who carried on his burdens for years. I was supposed to keep him afloat when everything was falling apart. He made little to no effort to take steps to be a better version of himself. There came a point in 2016 where I was completely done with his bullshit. His true colors were revealed to me, and I didn’t want to associate myself with him any longer. The next time he was out of town for a couple days, I called Jamie, rented a mover, packed my belongings and got my shit out of the house and never looked back.
(Cameron Ella Ava stopped talking as she paused. It wasn’t the first time that she was open about her life, but this was one of the few times that we had gotten details about her ex-boyfriend without airing his dirty laundry out. Surprisingly enough, the crowd began to applaud Cameron after she completed her last sentence. Perhaps, it was because they knew that Cameron had enough with her ex’s bullshit and did something about it. It could have been because Cameron had gotten the strength to be her own woman. There was a sense in Cameron that felt empowered and could take on anything.)
Cameron Ella Ava: Okay, what was the point of coming out here? Oh yeah, in the five years that I dated my ex, not one person came to me and told me that it was a bad idea. No one gave me a warning that the man was a piece of shit. Everyone kept their mouth shut and I learned all of this mess too late. I’m not going to put Kassidy through the biggest mistake of her life. If I can talk some sense to her with what I have to show her, that will be great. If not, I don’t know what I’ll do, but Kassidy, if you can come out.
(Cameron Ella Ava waits for Kassidy Heart to come out. Nothing happens for a moment until “Put Em Up” by Lupe Fiasco plays through the speakers. The crowd gives a positive reaction as Kassidy Heart comes out in a silver, long sleeve sequin dress and nude heels. The Universal Women’s Championship is on her shoulder as she seems to have a serious look on her face. She doesn’t look like she’s more than willing to greet Cameron, but annoyed and who would blame her? Cameron has stuck in her business when it comes to her marriage. Kassidy gets in the ring as she has a microphone in her possession. “Put Em Up” dies down.)
Kassidy Heart: Cameron, what the hell is all of this?
Cameron Ella Ava: Kassidy, it doesn’t matter that we’re opponents, but I am trying to help you out. I thought by being open about my experiences that you could be more aware about the situation I was in. It may seem like lollipops and rainbows in front of these cameras, but I don’t buy the fact that your marriage is perfect. I mean for starters, you never had the decision to marry the man. He needed to drug you to marry you. Do you think that’s normal at all? You have all the power to decide to walk away from this marriage if you want to, Kassidy. But, you want to “work things out” for a man who is incapable of loving? You haven’t seen his worst side. You’ve only seen the side of him he wants you to see of him. It’s the same shit that he did with my mother last year. When he wants you to see that ugly side of him, he’ll let you see it. Right now, he’s trying to ease you in and prove that he can be whatever you want to be. He’ll take that away from you when you become an inconvenience for him. He may shower you with kisses before he goes to work, he may buy you all the Pumpkin Spice Lattes you desire, but just remember that I know what this man is capable of and I think you need a reminder. Roll the footage.
(It pans to the jumbotron where we see a series of clips of Mr. DEDEDE and his absolute worst. We see footage of the torment that DEDEDE put on Cameron Ella Ava and the rest of her family. From hitting Jamie O’Hara with The Equalizer to giving Ms. Extreme a concussion at Operation: Doomsday. We see Mr. DEDEDE vowing to “Death, Destruct and Rape” Cameron and Ms. Extreme. We see Mr. DEDEDE and his relationship with Cameron’s mom, Carmen and the ultimate breaking point with the Red Wedding where DEDEDE speared Cameron’s younger sister, Candice Blair and assaulted Carmen as security held Cameron and Consuela Rose Ava back while Ms. Extreme was being escorted out of the arena. The screams of agony and fear from the sisters are heard in the background as the clips end with the sadistic look on Mr. DEDEDE standing tall on a broken Carmen.)
(It pans to ringside as Kassidy Heart is frozen as she can’t take her eyes off the jumbotron, even after the footage is done airing. She turns around to look at Cameron Ella Ava is no longer in the ring. Cameron had left Kassidy alone to watch the footage by herself, believing that would be enough convincing. It’s not clear what Kassidy is thinking of the moment, but this was a lot to take in.)
Deadprez: Watching that footage back and I’m still pretty speechless, Gavin. I’m trying to imagine what Kassidy Heart is feeling at the moment.
Gavin Kirkland: I saw nothing. I don’t know what you’re even talking about. Mr. DEDEDE is a nice and wonderful man. His wife will not stand for this slander.

(Showdown returns from commercial break as “Jenny From The Block (Track Masters Remix)” by Jennifer Lopez, Jadakiss, and Styles P. Continues to play throughout the arena. Jenny Cien enters the ring as Frank Grayson is waiting at the corner.)
Gina Romano: INTRODUCING HIS OPPONENT…FROM PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA… SHE IS “THE BADDIE”…JEEEEEENNNNNNYYYYYYYYYYY CIEEEEEEENNNNNNNNNNNNNN!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: We head to our opening contest of the night as we watch “The Baddie” Jenny Cien take on a returning Frank Grayson! Jenny has had her issues with Kensingten Calhoun-Astor! Kensingten cost Jenny a victory over the New Breed Champion last week, so Jenny needs this victory to redeem herself!
Deadprez: Jenny Cien has been doing what she needs to do to get her rematch against Kensignten, but she hasn’t been given it yet. What is Jenny going to need to do to get her match? Hold that thought, let’s begin this match!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Gavin Kirkland: Let’s get this opening match underway! The two Elitists meet in the middle of the ring as each person looks for an opening in the match! Frank Grayson applies a waist lock on Jenny, but Jenny elbows Frank in the face a few times! This releases the waist lock on the shorter woman! Jenny gets Frank by his head and goes for a headlock, but Frank manages to push Jenny to her side while Jenny maintains the headlock! Frank has her to the ropes and we see a bit of a struggle on Jenny’s face as she releases the headlock! Frank backs away from the time being and gestures for Jenny to give it her best shot! Jenny straightens herself out as she looks for another opening to get back in this match!
Deadprez: Jenny Cien runs towards Frank Grayson with a clothesline, but Frank manages to get Jenny by her arm and connect with a hip toss, but Jenny manages to land on her feet! JENNY DELIVERS A BACK KICK TO FRANK BEFORE REBOUNDING FROM THE HORIZONTAL ROPES AND CONNECTING WITH A TILT-A-WHIRL DDT! FRANK IS PLANTED TO THE GROUND AS JENNY GETS TO HIS FEET AND BEGINS TO STOMP THE LIVING HELL OUT OF THE BIGGER MAN! JENNY IS GESTURING FOR FRANK TO GET TO HIS FEET AS HE DOES SO — ALMOST LIKE IT WAS IN COMMAND! BEFORE FRANK CAN GET TO A VERTICAL BASE, JENNY RUNS TOWARD FRANK WITH A LOU-THESZ PRESS ON HIM! JENNY BEGINS TO LAND A SERIES OF PUNCHES! THESE PUNCHES ARE GETTING RAPID AS THE OFFICIAL MAY FEEL LIKE HE NEEDS TO STEP IN THE WAY! JENNY CAN’T RISK TO GET DISQUALIFIED!

She gets Frank Grayson back to his feet before getting a good grasp of his arm before connecting with an Irish whip! Frank’s back collides with the corner! Jenny Cien runs as she connects with a hesitation dropkick to Frank at the corner! Frank stumbles forward as Jenny follows that up with drop toe hold!

JENNY ROLLS HIM TO HIS BACK AS SHE GOES FOR THE FIRST PIN FALL ATTEMPT IN THIS MATCH!
Referee: OOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWO—
Deadprez: Frank Grayson with a shoulder up! I don’t think Frank plans on giving up this match anytime soon! It would suck for him to return and lose so quickly! Jenny Cien connects with some nasty fists to Frank’s forehead before getting him down a headlock! A headlock takedown is applied on Frank as it seems like Jenny is going to ground her opponent for the time being! Anything to wear the bigger man down may be useful for her to do! But, it seems like Frank is not planning to back down! He is searching for a way to get to his feet! Frank manages to get himself to his knees, but that hasn’t stopped Jenny from releasing the headlock! Frank find some strength to get Jenny off her feet, but Jenny manages to get right back down! Frank goes to lift Jenny off her feet again and connects with a head and shoulder suplex! The Baddie is taken down for the first time in this match!
Gavin Kirkland: Come on, Jenny! Frank Grayson gets Jenny Cien, drapes her on the second rope and begins to choke her using the ropes! She’s a delicate little flower! Don’t kill her!
Referee: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FIVE! LET GO, FRANK!
Deadprez: I doubt that Jenny Cien is delicate, Gavin! For sure, she felt that as Frank Grayson shoves her back to the canvas! With Jenny laying on her back, Frank connects with a sharp elbow drop to Jenny’s chest! Jenny is clutching her chest in pain as Frank looks like he is not done with inflicting as much pain as possible! Frank gets Jenny by her leg before slamming it down against the mat! Jenny cries out in pain as Frank gets her leg again before looking at the crowd, who is not too crazy about Frank at the moment!
Gavin Kirkland: FRANK GRAYSON APPLIES A FIGURE FOUR LEG LOCK ON THE BADDIE! JENNY CIEN IS TRYING TO PREVENT FRANK FROM APPLYING THE MOVE, BUT FRANK IS SUCCESSFULLY IN APPLYING THE LEG LOCK ON THIS WOMAN! Jenny is trying to reach for those ropes, but they seem so far away from her! I cannot imagine the pain that she must be experiencing at the moment! I wouldn’t want to find himself in that figure four leg lock! If Jenny doesn’t find a way out of this predicament, it seems like Frank will be starting this EAW run with a victory!
Deadprez: Jenny Cien has a ton of fighting spirit in her! I don’t see her losing this match so quickly! She had a crushing loss against Felix Hartley last week! She would love nothing more than to bounce back from that! Jenny is trying to get her arms to reach as far as she can to that bottom rope! Frank Grayson needs to do everything in his power to make sure that she doesn’t get out of this move! Jenny is starting to show some signs of moving closer to the bottom rope! Frank is trying to keep her still, but Jenny is showing some signs of fighting through the pain as she clutches onto the bottom rope! Frank needs to release the hold!
Gavin Kirkland: Frank Grayson releases the hold! He didn’t put much of a fight! Jenny Cien is clutching onto that bottom rope as she ducks herself underneath the bottom rope as she rests against the ring apron! I wouldn’t be shocked if Jenny doesn’t have much feeling in her legs at the moment! Frank doesn’t seem to be too crazy about having his time wasted as he baseball slides towards Jenny and knocks her off the apron! Jenny is trying to get to her feet, but she seems wobbly as hell at the moment —
Deadprez: FRANK GRAYSON WITH A TOPE CON FUCK-YOU ON JENNY CIEN! SOMERSAULT SENTON DIVE THROUGH THE MIDDLE ROPE! FRANK TAKES JENNY DOWN TO HER BACK AS HE RISES TO HIS FEET!

Referee: OOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
Deadprez: Jenny Cien kicks out! Frank Grayson gets to his knees as he begins to strategize his next move! He gets a fistful of Jenny’s hair, picking her back to her feet! Frank connects with an Irish whip as Jenny’s back collides with the corner! Frank goes right after her with a clothesline —

Nothing more sexier than a blonde than a fiery Latina! Jenny is up to her feet as she demands for Frank to get to his feet! Before Frank can get to his feet, Jenny connects with back kick to Frank’s stomach! SHE FOLLOWS THAT UP WITH A SPINNING HEEL KICK, WHICH KNOCKS FRANK TO HIS SIDE! WITH FRANK ON HIS BACK, JENNY STANDS IN FRONT OF FRANK BEFORE TURNING BACK BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A STANDING MOONSAULT INTO A DOUBLE KNEE DROP! JENNY GOES FOR THE COVER! THIS COULD BE OVER!
Referee: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
Deadprez: Frank Grayson shoves Jenny Cien off of him! Frank gets back to a vertical base as Jenny does the same thing as well! Jenny runs towards him — Lou Thesz press on Frank! No! Frank manages to catch Jenny before she can connect with the press! She has Jenny up into a powerbomb position! His direction is faced towards the turnbuckle! Jenny connects with a series of punches onto the top of Frank’s head! Jenny’s punches are stopping Frank from moving anywhere! Jenny manages to get her body in an electric chair position! She rests on Frank’s shoulders! What does Jenny Cien have in store?
Gavin Kirkland: Frankensteiner on Frank Grayson! What an impressive move from The Baddie! She has Frank in the perfect place for a pin fall attempt! This is it, Deadprez!
Referee: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!
Deadprez: Frank Grayson manages to kick out! The official is holding two fingers up! He is letting Jenny Cien know that Frank kicked out just barely! Jenny is smacking her hands against the canvas! This should have been over for Jenny! Frank would love nothing more than to win her! Getting a victory over someone as talked about as Jenny Cien would be an amazing return match for him! JENNY IS BACK TO HER FEET AS SHE GETS FRANK IN POSITION! JENNY CUTTER — RUNNING CUTTER ON FRANK GRAYSON!
Gavin Kirkland: Not exactly, Deadprez! Frank Grayson manages to stop himself as he pushes Jenny Cien away from him! The Baddie collides onto the ropes as she stumbles back in reaction! PAYDAY — JUMPING FLATLINER ON JENNY! FRANK GOES FOR THE COVER!
Deadprez: Jenny Cien rolls herself out of the ring! This is smart of Jenny to do! If Frank Grayson would have gotten the cover there, it would have put Jenny away! The look of frustration on Frank’s face says it all! He was three seconds from an impressive victory! Jenny proving that she’s not just a fiery person, but she’s pretty smart as well! Frank rolls himself out of the ring to retrieve Jenny! Frank gets Jenny and throws her against the steel steps! Frank runs towards her before connecting with a dropkick to Jenny who falls back to those steel steps! Frank gets Jenny and rolls her back into the ring! Jenny is clutching her lower back in pain as Frank gets inside the ring! Jenny is up to her feet, but Frank nails her with a superkick!
Gavin Kirkland: Jenny Cien ducks the superkick! Jenny sweeps Frank Grayson’s legs from underneath him as he falls onto his back! Jenny begins to stomp on Frank’s stomach before delivering a knee drop! Jenny gets Frank in an all fours position before running towards the man — DAME MAS — SPIKE HURRICANRANA DRIVER! FRANK IS NAILED ON THE TOP OF HIS HEAD, BUT IT SEEMS LIKE JENNY IS GOING FOR THE ONE MOVE THAT SHE TRIED TO GIVE FELIX HARTLEY LAST WEEK! SHE’S GOING FOR THE TOP ROPE! LADIES AND GENTLEMEN AT HOME, YOU MAY WANT TO DVR THIS BECAUSE IT’S GOING TO BE GLORIOUS! JENNY POSES FOR THE CROWD BEFORE JUMPING OFF THE TOP ROPE!
Deadprez: 100% SPLASH — IMPLODING 450 SPLASH ON FRANK GRAYSON! YOU WERE RIGHT, GAVIN! THAT WAS GLORIOUS! JENNY HAS THE COVER ON FRANK!
Referee: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!
(“Jenny From The Block” plays once again as Jenny Cien smacks her hands in the canvas out of happiness. Jenny rises to her feet as the official raises her hand in victory.)
Gina Romano: THE WINNER OF THIS MATCH… JEEEEEENNNNNNNNYYYYYYYYYY CIIIIIEEEEEEENNNNNNNNNNN!!!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: What an excellent match to begin Showdown, Deadprez! Jenny Cien redeems herself from her loss last week! That is one of the many moves that Kensingten Calhoun-Astor will have to be on the lookout, if they clash again!
(The camera pans to Frank Grayson on the outside as he is shaking his head in frustration. Frank makes his way up the ramp as Jenny Cien continues to celebrate in the ring.)
Deadprez: I thought Frank Grayson looked fantastic in the match! I thought after he hit Payday, it was the end of the match. Jenny Cien better be thankful that she had thought about rolling herself out of the ring. If she didn’t, that match would have been Frank’s for the taking!
Gavin Kirkland: That could be argued, but Frank made an impression on Showdown for sure! He just needs to work on it and he’ll find his footing on this brand!
(Jenny Cien continues to celebrate in the ring before it transitions to backstage with Showdown General Manager Jenny Punk. The other Jenny had watched Jenny Cien’s match and nodded her head impressed.)
???: You’re impressed by that?
(Jenny Punk turns around to find Kensingten Calhoun-Astor staring back at her. The fans begin to boo at the sight of this classy woman. Jenny Cien celebrating is showing on the television screen behind them. Jenny Punk folds her arms against her chest.)
Kensingten Calhoun-Astor: I don’t get the hype of Jenny Cien. All that she has shown is that she’s nothing more than a yapping little chihuahua who doesn’t know her place on this brand. I knocked her down a peg back in August and since then, she’s had an obsession with me. She’s been demanding a rematch, hitting me with that hideous baseball bat of hers and interfering in my matches. I have done everything to move forward and begin building my resume on Showdown. I would have had Constance Blevins defeated if it wasn’t for her. Ms. Punk, I don’t understand why you haven’t punished her. She’s not only a danger to me and this locker room, but she is a danger to herself.
Jenny Punk: This is EAW, Kensingten; things are going to get out of hand every now and then, but that’s the beauty of this sport. The unpredictability is what keeps people watching every week and it’s what has made Showdown so amazing since the season began. What are you here about?
Kensingten Calhoun-Astor: I’m looking to build my resume. Showdown needs me at Territorial Invasion, Ms. Punk. They need a woman like me to bring pride to this brand. Voltage or Dynasty won’t be able to do that. I mean, do you see what women are representing their brand? Territorial Invasion needs Kensingten Calhoun-Astor. I am what this brand needs and I want in on the Divide and Conquer Match.
Jenny Punk: Compelling case, but I’m not handing opportunities on a silver platter. You haven’t done anything that proves that you deserve to be on the card. You’ve only been in two matches. You lost your last match. Meanwhile, someone like Jenny Cien has faced as much competition as she can. She’s put on an amazing performance against Felix Hartley and would have won if it wasn’t because of you, Kensingten.
Kensingten Calhon-Astor: Pointing your ugly, crooked finger at me and I wasn’t even in the arena last week? If you want to book me next week, do so, I’ll take on anyone on Showdown and earn my way in the Divide and Conquer Match.
Jenny Punk: Anyone? Alright, Kensingten. I’ll book you next week. If you win, you’re in the Divide and Conquer Match.
(Jenny Punk looks at the television as Jenny Cien is already on top of the ramp.)
Jenny Punk: But, I think it’s about time to give her what she wants.
Kensingten Calhoun-Astor: Thinking of the needy, aren’t we?
Jenny Punk: I am, actually. Next week, Kensingten Calhoun-Astor will be going one-on-one with Jenny Cien!
(The crowd explodes in cheers due to the announcement. Kensingten Calhoun-Astor’s smug look drops due to the announcement, but she does everything in her power to fake a smile.)
Kensingten Calhoun-Astor: You don’t know what you just did, Ms. Punk, but whatever happens to your precious taquito will be because you let it happen.
(With that Kensingten Calhoun-Astor leaves Jenny Punk’s office. Jenny chuckles and shakes her head before looking back at the television. The scene fades to commercial break.)
( Camera opens up backstage where Lucas Johnson and Viktor Stone are in the locker room, trading barbs, with Albert Hitchman standing nearby. )
Viktor Stone: Okay? One win. You got one meaningful win, with the help of some manchild from Quebec, and you’re talking shit.
Lucas Johnson: You’re the one making snide remarks, assclown. I heard your stupid comment beneath your breath.
Viktor Stone: All I’m saying is we should create an EAW Network exclusive for you, “0-5 Live”, it’d be a ratings hit!
Lucas Johnson: Mock my Pain for Pride record all you want, at least I’ve actually been to Pain for Pride. Just like I’m going to Territorial Invasion. I’ll be shocked if you’re even in the company by the time the next PFP rolls around.
Viktor Stone: I’ll be shocked if you aren’t suspeneded for another season for making another retarded comment. Yeah that’s right. I heard all about it, doofus. You flaunt your seniority around here when you’re still some goofy kid who got in through the doors out of pure luck. You never grew the hell up and your status around here really show–
( HELENA MERRIMAN RUSHES UP FROM BEHIND, FLOORING VIKTOR WITH A BLOW TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD. Helena and Justin Windgate rush in, double teaming Viktor while Lucas Johnson smiles and laughs. )
Lucas Johnson: Serves you right!
Albert Hitchman: LUCAS!!!
( Darcy May Morgan and Remi Skyfire storm into the scene, assault Lucas Johnson from out of nowhere, delivering clubbing blows to the body. They both grab Lucas and toss him head first into the lockers. Justin Windgate holds Viktor Stone’s head up, and Helena delivers a punt kick to the head, leaving Viktor laid out. The four Dynasty elitists continue their assault on Lucas and Viktor, until officials have to rush into the scene and jump in between the invading Dynasty Elitists and their assault victims. Viktor and Lucas are laid out, and Albert Hitchman is screaming for medical help as Lucas Johnson has a gash over his right eye. )
( Camera opens back up to the arena. )
Gavin Kirkland: WHERE IS OUR SECURITY?! WHERE IS OUR REINFORCEMENT?! THOSE BASTARDS OVER IN DYNASTY HAVE DONE TWO OF OUR ELITISTS IN YET AGAIN! :noah:
Deadprez: In all fairness Gavin, Viktor stuck his nose in Dynasty business last night interfering in that Divide & Conquer qualifying match.
Gavin Kirkland: DON’T TAKE UP FOR THEM DEADPREZ! THEY’RE THE ENEMY! SCUM! LITERAL REDCOATS! LIKE THE CONFEDERACY! OR THE NAZIS! ERIC HAVOC IS LITERALLY HITLER! I KNOW HE HAS SOMETHING TO DO WITH THIS ATTACK, HE MUST HAVE ORCHESTRATED IT DOWN TO A T, HE JUST HAD TO!
( “My Way” by Limp Bizkit hits, and Ryan Wilson makes his entrance flanked by Sylvain Primeau and Tony ‘Brujah’ St-Michel. )
( DING! DING! DING! )
Gina Romano: The following tag team contest is scheduled for ONE FALL!!! Introducing first, hailing from Montreal, Quebec, Canada weighing in at 212 POOOUNDS, RYYYYAANNN WILLSSOOOOOOOOON!!!!
Deadprez: Don’t get me wrong, I’m Team Showdown all the way. I think Ryan Wilson has proven with his overall consistency, and his performance last week, that he deserves to represent us in the Divide & Conquer match. But I can respect the mentality of an eye for an eye, and if anything Dynasty’s bold move earlier should embolden us to sack up and swing back ten times harder!
Gavin Kirkland: If there’s one thing that’s known to be true about Ryan Wilson, it’s that he’s as stubborn as the day is long. I trust Wilson to serve as an efficient agitator against the Dynasty and Voltage forces expected to be represented in the Divide & Conquer match.
( “I Love It Loud (Wolf Howl Intro)” by Kiss hits, and Shaker Jones makes his entrance dressed to compete with a wolf t-shirt. )
Gina Romano: His partner, from Inglis, Manitoba, Canada weighing in at 238 POOOUNNNDS, SHAAAKEEEEEEEEEEEEEER JOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONESSS!!!
Deadprez: This past weekend on my Youtube channel, DeadprezReprezent4Lyfe
Gavin Kirkland: :skip:
Deadprez: :whoa: Full disclosure I made the channel in ’07 that’s how we named everything back in those days. Anyways, last weekend I sat down with Shaker Jones on my Youtube exclusive interview and Shaker really vented his frustrations about his direction. He feels that he’s putting on his best work, putting in his greatest efforts, and hasn’t been able to gain any sort of momentum. I could really feel the hunger inside the kid, and you know what Gavin? Sometimes all it takes is one victory, and the closer we get to an event like Territorial Invasion, the more victories start to matter.
Gavin Kirkland: That’s true, we’ve seen guys remain stagnant for far longer and all of a sudden they’re off to the races following a big victory. It’s interesting that Shaker will be aligned tonight with a man he has quite a bit of history with Ryan Wilson. We’ll see if they’ll be able to put any differences they may have aside and get on the same page tonight for old times sakes.
( ‘War’ by Dance With The Dead hits and Santo Muerte makes his entrance, maintaining a cold glare in his eyes. )
Gina Romano: Their opponents, first from Death Valley, California weighing in at 200 POOOUNNDSS… SAANNNTOOOOOOOOOO MMUEERTEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!
Deadprez: You better believe this cat Santo Muerte is pissed the hell off after eating the loss in last week’s triple threat contest, especially to a guy who let himself get blindsided earlier tonight by Dynasty talent.
( “Old Town Road” by Lil Nas X ft. Billy Ray Cyrus plays, and Lance Blackfire stomps out to the stage winding up his arms, ready to compete. He receives a big ovation from the audience )
Gina Romano: And his partner, from Chicago, Illinois weighing in at 365 POOOOOUNNDSS.. LLLLLLLLAAAAAAAAAAAAANCE BLLLACCKFYYYYREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: I don’t even know if they’re cheering Lance or cheering his theme song -_-
Deadprez: Uh something tells me they’re cheering Lance. I can’t imagine jumping up to my feet for this played out song. But after some of the performances we’ve seen from this guy against the likes of Mr. DEDEDE and Jamie O’Hara, it’s not surprising that some members of the EAW Universe have started to invest in him. He is a beast, and I think even though he had the triple threat match from last week slip through his hands, he is still a force to be reckoned with.
( DING! DING! DING! )
Gavin Kirkland: Lance Blackfyre is in the ring with Ryan Wilson, and Blackfyre immediately bulldozes through him with a running shoulder block! Rushes to the apron where Shaker Jones is standing, BIG BOOT! Jones jumps down from the apron, and Blackfyre turns around to grab Wilson just as he’s back up to his feet and toss him into the corner. Comes after him looking for a RUNNING SPLASH! Wilson quickly jumps through the ropes, and delivers a roundhouse kick over the ropes! Sprints up to the top turnbuckle now, and delivers a DIVING TORNADO DDT OF DEATH ON LANCE BLACKFYRE!!!
Deadprez: BLACKFYRE HOLDS HIS GROUND! HE SUSPENDS WILSON UP IN THE AIR, AND COUNTERS WITH A MILITARY PRESS INTO A FLAPJACK! Wilson landing splat on the canvas hard, and Blackfyre comes right after him with a jumping leg drop! Massive leg, pause, dropped right across the throat of Wilson, hook of the leg.
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWO!
Gavin Kirkland: Kick out by Wilson. Wilson trying to crawl over to his partner, but Lance Blackfyre slowly follows him, right on his tail, and nonchalantly grabs him by the ankle to drag him across the ring to his own partner’s corner where Santo Muerte is standing. Blackfyre rips him up from the mat and tosses him right into that corner, and blasts him with an uppercut! Wilson ducks it, rips his arm away from Santo who tried to have him held in place, and his a flurry of kicks into the legs! Specifically targeting the hamstring! Blackfyre brought down to a knee, and Wilson teeing off with a flurry of punches to the temple! Blackfyre holding up his arms trying to protect himself, but Wilson is unleashing, fighting even harder with the massive size differential clearly in mind. Now Wilson takes Blackfyre by the wrist, and is attempting to send him into his own corner with the Irish whip –
Deadprez: LANCE BLACKFYRE SEVERELY OVERPOWERS HIM, COUNTERING WITH HIS OWN IRISH WHIP INTO HIS OWN TEAM CORNER! WILSON RUNS UP THE CORNER, AND BACKFLIPS OVER IT, AND OVER LANCE BLACKFY-
Gavin Kirkland: CAUGHT ON BLACKFYRES SHOULDER! BLACKFYRE TURNS DIRECTIONS, LOOKING FOR A RUNNING POWERSLAM!
Deadprez: But Wilson hammers off elbows across the temple! Slithering down Blackfyre’s back and attempting to counter with a sunset flip pin! But Blackfyre refuses to be taken off his feet! He reaches down, WRAPPING HIS HANDS AROUND WILSON’S NECK, WILSON’S EYES BUGGING OUT IN TERROR! BLACKFYRE RIPS WILSON UP THROUGH HIS LEGS AND OFF THE MAT, AND HOISTS HIM HIGH LOOKING FOR THE CHOKEBOMB! NO! THUMB TO THE EYE BY WILSON! That allows them to create space, and Wilson tags in Shaker Jones desperately, while Blackfyre stumbles into the corner and is blind tagged by Santo Muerte!
Gavin Kirkland: Jones blitzes across the ring, but Muerte delivers a rope aided step-up enzuigiri! He slides his body underneath the bottom rope, ohhh smooth transition into a KIP UP ‘RANA! The two recover, wild right by Jones is evaded by a combat roll from Muerte. And Muerte springs off the ropes into a SPRINGBOARD ARMDRAG TAKEDOWN! SENDING SHAKER CRASHING TO THE MAT AND ROLLING OUT OF THE RING! Shaker Jones favors the nape of his neck, and turns to our announce desk BANGING his fists in sheer frustration!
Deadprez: Muerte is ordering Shaker to get back in the ring, come on Shake you can’t let him get to you this quickly.
Gavin Kirkland: Shaker Jones slides back into the ring and comes after Muerte with another right hand, blocked by Muerte. Two consecutive forearms to the face by ‘The Saint of Death’, followed by some stiff shoot kicks! Leg trip attempt! But Shaker jumps over it and BLASTS HIM WITH A JUMPING KNEE RIGHT BETWEEN THE EYES!!! Muerte laid out flat on his back, and Jones tucks both legs under his arms and sends him right into his team corner with a slingshot! Santo Muerte lands face first into the middle turnbuckle, slumped over! Jones tags in Ryan Wilson, and Wilson springs up to the top turnbuckle before delivering a CURB STOMP INTO THE SPINE OF MUERTE! JONES FOLLOWS UP, BRINGING MUERTE UP OVER HIS SHOULDER AND WILSON CATCHES HIM COMING DOWN WITH A BACK SUPLEX (BY SHAKER) AND JUMPING NECKBREAKER (BY WILSON) COMBO! LANCE BLACKFYRE ATTEMPTING TO STEP THROUGH THE ROPES, BUT THE OFFICIAL HOLDS HIM BACK!
Deadprez: BLACKFYRE’S REAL HOT BY THAT, BUT IT’S FAIR GAME, TWO PARTNERS ARE ALLOWED TO COLLABORATE IN THE IMMEDIATE SECONDS OFF A FRESH TAG. The ref slides back to the mat as Wilson is calling for the ref to do so, with both of Muerte’s legs hooked.
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONEEEE!!! TWO!!!
Deadprez: Kick out by Muerte. Wilson snaps in a side headlock, and has some foul words for the official for taking too long to get down to the mat and pin. That’s not very fair though, not like the referee can be in two places at once. Wilson may not always be the most level headed person, but he’s definitely employing smart strategy by keeping a momentum clamp on a guy who I’d colloquially speaking consider to be a speed demon.
Gavin Kirkland: He’s as quick as he is demonic, and Muerte showing that he’s resourceful as well, slinging Wilson off of him with a side body roll to escape the headlock. Wilson charges back at Muerte. He leapfrogs over him! Wilson rebounds off of the ropes, blind tag by Shaker. PICTURE PERFECT DROPKICK FROM MUERTE ONTO WILSON! Wilson scrambles back up, well placed kick to the gut! Wilson catches the boot, WINDMILL KICK taking WIlson to the floor and has him rolling out of the ring! The legal man Shaker Jones rushes over to Muerte, kicks him in the midsection and attempts a running powerbomb! But Muerte counters with a HURRICANRANA, SENDING JONES THROUGH THE ROPES AND CRASHING INTO WILSON AT RINGSIDE, SENDING BOTH OF THEM TUMBLING DOWN!
Deadprez: A nasty collision down there. Wilson and Jones are getting an assist from Wilson’s managers, Sylvain Primeau and Tony ‘Brujah’ St-Michel!
Gavin Kirkland: Tag by Santo Muerte, turning Lance Blackfyre into the legal man, and Blackfyre is willing to collaborate with his partner similarly to the two ex-members of ‘The Score’. Muerte runs the ropes, while Blackfyre is on the apron standing above Jones and WIlson who are recovering behind him. AND MUERTE RUNS RIGHT TOWARDS BLACKFYRE, AND JUMPS BACKWARDS INTO BLACKFYRES ARMS! AND BLACKFYRE POPS SANTO MUERTE UP HIGH OVER HIS HEAD, OUT OF THE RING, HURLING HIM NEARLY 15 FEET IN THE AIR ABOVE RINGSIDE!!! MUERTO COMES CRASHING DOWN WITH A FREE FALL SPLASH!!!! JONES, WILSON, SYLVAIN PRIMEAU AND ‘BRUJAH’ ST-MICHEL COMPLETELY WIPED OUT!!!!
Deadprez: THAT ONE SET THE VERIZON ARENA ON FIRE! Lance Blackfyre drops down to ringside after that incredible hurl, and he riles up the fans at ringside who are loving what they just saw! Blackfyre really ceases to amaze me, and it’s no shock he’s becoming more and more popular when he does incredible shit like this on a weekly basis. Blackfyre pulls Shaker Jones up by the nape of the neck and sends him into the ring, and he’s about to follow him in – but Ryan Wilson is on the floor, clutching at one of Blackfyre’s ankles! Blackfyre clearly agitated by that, and he turns around, STOMPING ON THE HAND OF WILSON, AND PRESSING HIS BOOT AND ALL 350 POUNDS OF HIS BODY WEIGHT INTO RYAN WILSON’S HAND!!! USING THE RING ROPE FOR SUPPORT! The referee is counting Lance Blackfyre out, already at a “3”, and MEANWHILE SHAKER JONES BLASTS BLACKFYRE ACROSS THE HEAD WITH A BASEBALL SLIDE FROM THE RING! Blackfyre tumbling down after being kicked right in the jaw from out of nowhere!
Gavin Kirkland: Santo Muerte jumps onto the apron, and he’s immediately met by the official who wants him to get back into his corner. MUERTE SPRINGBOARDS THE ROPES, AND JUMPS OVER THE REFEREE, INTO A SPRINGBOARD FRANKENSTEINER!!!
Deadprez: SLEDGE-O-MATIC!!!! SHAKER CATCHING AN ONCOMING SANTO MUERTE AND FLATTENED HIM WITH A SITOUT POWERBOMB WITH AN ELBOW DROP TO THE GROIN COMING DOWN!!! Her twists Muerte by the legs sending him rolling out of the ring, and Lance Blackfyre storms into the ring like a house of fire! He shoves Shaker Jones into the turnbuckle with his massive hands, and goes to work with a flurry of closed fist punches into the torso! Battering repeatedly, rights and lefts, before delivering a humongous jumping back elbow across the cheek bone! That ain’t no luchador delivering such a back elbow, that’s a 350 pound giant! Blackyre takes Jones by the wrist and sends him across the ring, and STAMPEDES OVER TO HIM LIKE A BULL WITH A RUNNING GORE INTO THE RIBS!!!
Gavin Kirkland: SHAKER JONES SPINS OUT OF THE WAY! BLACKFYRE SMACKS INTO THE RINGPOST!!! HOLY HELL!!! THAT JUST SHORT CIRCUITED THE LED SURFACE OF THAT ENTIRE RING POST! THAT SOUNDED LIKE A TRUCK JUST CRASHED IN TO IT FOR FUCKS SAKES!
Deadprez: SUPERMAN PUNCH FROM RYAN WILSON!!!! WILSON CAUGHT BLACKFYRE WHILE IN THE CORNER WITH A DRIVE BY SUPERMAN PUNCH, AND SHAKER DESPERATELY DRAGS BLACKFYRE OUT OF THE CORNER! BLACKFYRE SOMEHOW STILL STANDING! AND JONES CATCHES BLACKFYRE WITH A SPRINGBOARD SUMMER!!! THE WILD RIDE, SENDING BLACKFYRE DOWN, COLLAPSES OVER HIM! SANTO MUERTE TRYING TO CLIMB BACK INTO THE RING, BUT FROM RINGSIDE SYLVAIN PRIMEAU AND BRUJAH ST-MICHEL ARE KEEPING MUERTE OUT OF RINGSIDE BY HIS LEGS!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!1 THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!
( DING! DING! DING! )
( “I Love It Loud (Wolf Howl Intro)” by Kiss plays, and Shaker Jones jumps off of Blackfyre to raise both fists to the audience. Ryan Wilson enters the ring next to Shaker Jones, and the referee holds up both of their arms. )
Gina Romano: Here are your winners, the team of RYAN WILSON and SHAKER JOOONESSS!!!
Gavin Kirkland: With a lot of heart and a little bit of outside assistance as well as good timing, Shaker Jones picks up a much needed win for himself, as well as for his team!
Deadprez: At the end of the day he wants this as bad as anything, Gavin. I ain’t here to cheerlead the guy but Shaker Jones is one of the hardest working people on the roster, as is Ryan Wilson.
Gavin Kirkland: They’re not friends, they damn sure aren’t comrades anymore on the level that they used to be back on Dynasty last season, but they were able to cooperate well enough to hold out a unified front against two terrifying opponents. We’ll see what tomorrow holds for Shaker, but it’s an important victory for Wilson too – well needed momentum before he enters the Divide & Conquer match .
(The scene fades into Kyra Phillips backstage with a smile on her face. In the background, there is a Showdown themed blue screen. Kyra looks a little irritated over her next guest, but she is trying to keep as professional as possible.)
Kyra Phillips: Ladies and gentlemen, last week I interviewed Harlow Reichert and got her thoughts going into her PURE Championship match at Territorial Invasion. Now, I have with me, the PURE Champion himself, Mark Michaels!
(The crowd in the arena begins to boo at the very sight of Mark Michaels. On his shoulder, rests the PURE Championship which is glistening underneath the lights. Mark has a giant smug on his face that could make someone like Chris Elite wanna knock the fuck out.)
Kyra Phillips: Mark, in two weeks, you will face Harlow Reichert for the PURE Championship? I’m going to ask you what I asked Harlow last week, do you have any thoughts or concerns going to this title defense?
Mark Michaels: No. The only thoughts and concerns are for Harlow Reichert. Poor girl has no idea what she is getting herself into. She has all the confidence in the world and believes that she will be able to take down the “big and bad” Mark Michaels, but I have put too much, blood, sweat, and tears to this championship to throw it all away. I have been the example of someone who has busted their ass for four years. I have put myself through hell. I was blown up at one point, but I still managed to rise above all of that and become better. It didn’t matter that this stupid company tried holding me back for almost half a decade, but I wasn’t going to back down anymore. I wasn’t going to let them silence me. There’s a reason that I love the sound of my own voice, Kyra. It’s because I know what I am saying are facts. They are nothing more than the truth. EAW knows that, and since I managed to win this championship at Pain for Pride, they have been looking for ways to take me down and make me look like a dumbass. They really believed that sending someone as hopeless as Ryan Wilson was going to be the answer? They think that Harlow Reichert is the answer to all of their prayers? It’s such a shame because Harlow should be standing alongside me. She is another example of how this company is holding back men and women from their full potential, and they’re playing Harlow like a fiddle. I can’t stand it.
Kyra Phillips: What do you mean that they’re playing her like a fiddle?
Mark Michaels: Well, Kyra; when have they ever given a flying fuck about Harlow? She was nothing more than an afterthought on Empire. If it weren’t for her victory at Midsummer Massacre, she would probably find herself in the lower card with the likes of Lance Blackfyre and Viktor Stone. Who knows? Perhaps, she and Io Ishimori would be having a battle over who is the most “underrated” on the roster? Now, after some dumb victory, they’re paying attention to her? It’s similar to my success at Pain for Pride and the assholes in suits beginning to take me a bit seriously after taking down one of their heroes. They should have taken me seriously when I returned back in January. Now, they’re scrambling to have this championship taken from me. They have done everything in their power to shift the attention away from the real problems. For those assholes in suits, the problem is me because I am the only one that has the balls to call them out on them. It must be why they resulted in having me become an afterthought by inserting me in the Xander Payne/Myles situation. It’s not working and I am going to make sure that all their pathetic attempts at making me and my reign forgettable fail. I know Ryan Adams, and the board of directors wants this championship taken away from me. It’s why they put someone like Ryan Wilson in the spotlight. Despite Ryan and his issues with DEDEDE, it seems like winning the title may get him to shut the fuck up. It’s why Harlow is being thrust with this tremendous opportunity. It’s going to be so easy to keep someone like Harlow inline versus me. I am not going to let that happen, Kyra. I can’t let them win. I need to take down Harlow like I took down Ryan Wilson and Ms. Extreme.
Kyra Phillips: For the past few weeks, we have been seeing you trying to bring that fire out from Harlow Reichert? What’s your motivation for doing all of that?
Mark Michaels: Isn’t it simple, Kyra? Camille Ava was the same way before I ended her record-breaking championship reign. She thought because she beat me on Ides of March, she didn’t need to take me seriously. There’s where I surprised her. I brought the fire out of Ms. Extreme and made sure that she gave me the fight of her career. There’s what I am trying to do with Harlow. Camille was more stubborn and easy to piss off, I don’t sense Harlow of being the same thing. There is something about Harlow that thinks before resorting to some sort of action. She has been telling me that there are a time and place for everything, but it’s getting too boring to wait. I want a fight. I want the fans to feel invested in this match between us. I want the fans to be invested in Harlow and feel heartbroken when I take her down at Territorial Invasion. I haven’t felt invested in this match. I know I am going to take down Harlow in a few weeks, but I want her to give the fight to remember. If Harlow wants this PURE Championship, she is going to pry it off my cold, dead hands. Next week, I’m going to invite Harlow to the ring. I’m aware that this is going to be my last shot at making this match worth something and whatever I plan to do is going to piss her off.
(Mark Michaels is done speaking as he has a huge, shit-eating grin on his face. He has something in the works, and it’s either going to be the best or worst thing for the fans to see. The scene fades to somewhere else.)
Voiceover: In the briminal justice system, dickeating based offenses are considered especially heinous in Elite Answers Wrestling, the dedicated detectives who investigate these vicious felonies are known as an elite squad known as the Bozo Victims Unit. These are their stories.
“I ALWAYS THOUGHT MY LAST BITCH WOULD BE MY LAST BITCH
TILL I FOUND OUT SHE WAS A SAVAGE”
( CAPTION: “Earlier today” )
( Scene opens to a packed in police car, where Ahren Fournier is in the passenger seat with Jennipurr on his lap and Detective SKabler is in the drivers’ seat wearing dark shades, driving unreasonably fast and drinking henny from out a paper bag. Packed in the back of the BVU cruiser are Detective Biggums, Assidy Hart, Ty the White Guy and Jamie O’Hara packed in the middle of them like sardines – looking uncomfortably out of place. The incredulous look on Jamie’s face tells the story, in his heart of hearts he has no earthly idea why he is where he is, until he’s reminded of Jenny Punk’s advice to engage in “team building” by entering Chris and Ahren’s world. )
Detective SKabler: I AINT HAVE SHIT BUT THAT WAS BACK THEN
NOW IM ESTABLISHED I GOT MAD DRIP
FUCK LOVE THAT SHIT DONT BELONG HERE
Detective Biggums: Yo cuz you been playing this shit a lot lately B you trying to tell us something?
Detective SKabler: Man what?
( SKabler turns down the volume a little. )
Detective Biggums: I said you sound like you hurt B, like you got some shit on your chest or something.
Assidy Hart: Awww, you having girl problems Bhrissy?
Detective SKabler: :skip: … (ponders) … I mean yeah you could say that.
Assidy Hart: Who broke your heart boo? Tell me so I can cut that bitch.
Detective SKabler: :skip: *takes a sip of Henny* It’s not even that deep. Besides, we all go through bitch problems right Jamie?
Jamie O’Hara: I suppose yeah.
Detective SKabler: I was too busy beefing with Ryan Adams so I wasn’t really checking back then, but I heard you and your girl was beefing around this time a couple years ago. So like, how’d you end up handling it?
Jamie O’Hara: Well… we ended up settling our differences at TI in a 35 minute World Heavyweight Championship slugfest.
Detective SKabler: Word. So you saying I should smack the shit out of that bitch.
Jamie O’Hara: I’m not saying that at all.
Ahren Fournier: The GOAT never has girl problems. Any time a bih acts up I just tell her to leave. Move on to the next bih. Only pussy I’m loyal too is my cute little Jennipurr, right baby?
( Jennipurr meows. )
Detective SKabler: Look Jamie I know you want to get up with the Bozo Victims Unit but can’t stunt, if you want to be a true “leader” of Team Showdown you got to know your teammates strengths and weaknesses. You got to know how we respond during good times and the bad times. And I feel like I know you well enough anyways to open up and let you into my heart. You see I know I may put on a tough front and talk a good game, with my Gawd contract; but the truth is I’m human just like the rest of you fam.
Assidy Hart: CHRIS WATCH IT!
( Detective SKabler abruptly stomps on the brakes as the BVU cruiser hits a red light, coming inches away from running over an elderly woman pushing a carriage. He turns on the police sirens and continues driving, blatantly ignoring the red light, and turns the sirens off shortly after. The background music on the radio switches to PTSD by Pop Smoke. )
Jamie O’Hara: Uhm, I don’t mean to divert subjects. Correct me if I’m wrong but, aren’t there laws in America about driving a police vehicle?
Ty the White Guy: Yeah and there are also laws about driving under the influence. Maybe you should let me take the wheel Chris.
Detective SKabler: Na Im good Im not even wavy like, I’m in full control. I promise.
Detective Biggums: Nah you straight cuz whatever you do don’t let him get control of the aux cord. Please, I’m begging you I’m not tryna hear him put on that wackass Joyner Lucas or Eminem or someshit.
Detective SKabler: Say word I might blow my brains out if that shit happens I’m already down in the dumps as it is. Anyways. Girl problems aside, I may put up a tough front but in reality it hurts my feelings when I open up my timeline and have to endure all the dickeating shit people have to say. Like imagine facing criticism 24/7 from neckbeards down talking my career from the comfort of their gaming chair.
Ahren Fournier: I hear that. You wouldn’t know anything about that Jamie, somehow you’re Mr. Popular.
Detective SKabler: Word, we get left off of lists while you on everybody’s top 5, they say we can’t call ourselves GOATs while you in everybody’s GOAT circle.
Ahren Fournier: Chris or I should have been shoo-ins to being the co-Team Captains of Showdown, but it doesn’t even shock me that they picked you. After all you’re embraced by the weebs, the old heads, the new regime, and everybody in between. For some reason everybody luhhs kissing that Australian ass.
Jamie O’Hara: Come on, now. Surely you aren’t insinuating that I’ve had it easy. Are you?
Ahren Fournier: Well now that’s relative isn’t it my dear Aussie? What we’re insinuating is so pitifully obvious. Your whole career you’ve had people riding your jock and you know it. Chris and I have had to fight for relevance from day one. We started out with no opportunities, your first Pain for Pride match was in the show stealing CITV briefcase match. So cool! Such amazing! Wanna know where my first Pain for Pride match took place? Hmm? In the pre-show. After beating that ugly bitch they had the nerve to call the face of the company on the very FPV before.
Detective SKabler: You won your first EAW Title when I was carrying Eclipse Kellys fat ass and that other dyke tranny in The Iconomy. Back when EAW was pumping them up before me. (Tires screech from Chris’ swerving) Then when I win my first World Title off of you all I hear is “Imp handed you that title” , like damn brodie the cock munching I have to sit through on a daily basis.
Ahren Fournier: How about my first World Title? That I “needed a woman” to hand me, according to that dumb skank bih Ms. Extreme. Since apparently that’s what she said about me last week on Voltage. I wouldn’t know for sure ’cause I don’t watch Voltage. Who gives a fuck about that shitty show? The only show that mattas is Showdown, because The GOAT is competing on it. But still, just amazing how delusional people can be. And then the masses soak it up. But you don’t have that problem don’t you Jamie?
Jamie O’Hara: Look I understand where you both are coming from. Truth of the matter is you both are arguably criminally underestimated. It certainly isn’t because you aren’t seen as top talent, nobody can deny your abilities. However I’m not going to pull punches with either of you, or appease your feelings when I say what I’m about to say…
( SKabler swerves, moving out of the opposite lane, and we can hear the irate horns of the automobile that just narrowly dodged a head-on collision with the BVU cruiser. )
Jamie O’Hara: (rattled) Fucks sake, are you alright mate???
Detective SKabler: “Mate” I’m good I’m gucci “mate”. Keep going I’m listening.
Jamie O’Hara: (sigh) Anyways, I’m only speaking genuinely when I say that you both ought to bear some responsibility for the negative perception that surrounds both of your names. It’s not as if you’re both viewed in a completely negative light, everybody understands how talented you are, but there are some valid criticisms for why you receive pushback from the public.
Ahren Fournier: Oh really? Hmmm. Enlighten us then, O’great one, O’Hara.
Jamie O’Hara: Okay. Well for starters, you’re both outrageous egomaniacs. Borderline narcissistic cunts sometimes. I’ve rivaled with you both, I know that as well as anybody.
Detective SKabler: :skip:
Ahren Fournier: Me? Ego? Noooo.
Detective SKabler: Sounds like cap to me Captain.
Ahren Fournier: Y u cappin cap’n.
Jamie O’Hara: Spare me with the sarcasm. If anything it leads to my next point, you two also suffer from a massive attitude problem. In your case Chris, you are hyper aware of your surroundings. Well except for right now, considering you’ve just missed three stop signs in a row. But in general I find that you’re overly reactive to everything everybody says, and what could have been a survival tactic instead is holding you back. And you Ahren, you live in a mental bubble. You’re some infallible king in your own mind, and sure, that mentality can be great when it’s needed. Until it’s taken completely out of control the way you have and it ends up completely backfiring on you because you’ve become out of touch.
Detective Biggums: Yo real quick ima let you finish but its cool if I light up in here?
Jamie O’Hara: … What?
( Detective Biggums pulls out a spliff saved in his coat pocket, and a lighter from his pants pockets. )
Jamie O’Hara: …. Mate at least save it for when we get to the arena yeah?
Detective Biggums: Just one hit for the road my g I promise.
( Detective Biggums lights up the spliff and takes one deep drag. )
Ty the White Guy: Yo shit I left my pen back at the hotel, let me bum real quick too?
Detective Biggums: Yea aight just don’t drool all over it again pause. You did that shit last time and I was heated, with your nasty crackhead lips.
( Detective Biggums reaches across Jamie and passes the weed to Ty, who takes a hit of it himself. Jamie O’Hara facepalms. )
Jamie O’Hara: I knew I should have asked for the window seat.
Detective SKabler: Yo Jamie that’s cool you got all these criticisms for us and whatnot it really makes us feel special. Thank you for saying the same thing the eaters say on the internet that just absolutely brightens my day. That was sarcasm in case you didn’t pick up on it bozo.
Ahren Fournier: Just face it Jamie deep down inside you’re threatened by the both of us. I know how it feels like having to scrap in a brand full of alpha dogs. Both Chris or I could become World Champion whenever we good and well please. And uhh yeah considering that horrible loss you took at Pain for Pride, wasting a Grand Rampage victory no less, safe to say you’re in the back of the line now aren’t ya mister.
Jamie O’Hara: That’s real cute mate. Would be even funnier if it weren’t for the fact that you just lost to DDD yourself. I suppose you must have been speared so hard you simply forgot.
Ahren Fournier: Yeah but between the three of us you know who hasn’t pinned Mr. DEDEDE? Ever? Oh yeah, that’s right, that would be you.
Detective SKabler: Facts I already beat DDD in the middle of the ring one-two-three. So did Ahren. Can’t say the same yourself.
Jamie O’Hara: Look I didn’t compare to engage in a verbal pissing race, we all know the three of us are World Championship calibre. But now’s the time to cop to our own flaws now while we still can, so that we can sharpen up our dull points and represent Showdown. And therefore, represent ourselves properly as the company leading talent we know we are. We all had rough nights at Pain for Pride, some were more rough than others. We’ve all been fighting to gain momentum as well, so it may fancy us to get on the same fucking page and quit bickering like ecocentric cunts, and maybe-
( A real police vehicle can be seen from the back window trailing the BVU cruiser. The hearts of every person in the car drops, including Big Mike who is taking his third hit of the weed. )
Detective SKabler: :krabs:
( TO BE CONTINUED… )
Gina Romano: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN…THE FOLLOWING SCHEDULE IS SET FOR ..ONE FALL!!
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!
(Xander Payne comes out to “It Follows” by Cane Hill as he quickly walks past the ring and demands a headset and takes a seat between Deadprez and Gavin Kirkland)
Gavin Kirkland: …..
(“Wolves of Siberia” by Behemoth hit as Shane Gates makes his way down the ramp, followed closely by his manager Angela Grant. The crowd shower them with boos as they make their way into the ring)
Gina Romano: Making his way to the ring, from Huntington Beach California…weighing in at 213 pounds…SHHHHAAAANEEE GAAAAAATES!!!!!!!
Deadprez: And here comes Shane Gates, tell me, does he really need his manager or is he just trying to show her off to the world? :lupe:
Gavin Kirkland: Why not both? Shane Gates is taking on Myles tonight here at Showdown and I can tell you, with our special guest commentator Xander here with us, it’s gonna be one awkward…I mean, awesome match.
Xander Payne: Damn, you two are pretty insufferable and the match hasn’t even started, why not shut that flap a bit?
(“Enemy Strike” by Yuki Hayashi blasts as Myles makes his way down to the ring, his eyes fixed on Shane Gates before giving a quick glance at Xander. The crowd is cheering as Myles makes sure to give a cocky smirk to Angela Grant as he enters the ring)
Gina Romano: …and his opponent, from Melbourne, Australia…weighing in at 208 pounds, THE SOLDIER!!!…..MYYYLLLESSS!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: Looks like Myles is fully focused on his opponent tonight. Xander, your thoughts?
Xander: How about your thoughts Gavin? Did I give you permission to ask me questions? No. Zip it.
Gavin: Well, Myles is a terrific wrestler, an elitist with relentless fighting spirit and a global icon here at Showdown, if not EAW!
Xander: You forgot to add “backstabber” to that list of accomplishments….
Deadprez: I’m sorry but can we just get this show started? Myles is many things, but he’s not an easy target and Shane Gates should not be expecting an easy victory here.
(DING! DING! DING!)
Deadprez: Gates takes the first step! Gates grabbing Myles by his waist…wait he’s going around from the back, waistlock! Gates has the lock applied perfectly, Myles struggling to get past it but Gates is really holding tightly as he continues to set the pace of the match! NO! Myles with a counter and flipping Shane on his back as now Myles on the offensive….series to punches to Shane, Shane is reeling here…..SHANE WITH A BACK KICK TO THE HEAD OF MYLES!
Xander Payne: Get him you sonofabitch! Kick him harder! Is that all you can do?!
Gavin Kirkland: Well your wish is coming true! Gates with a barrage of reverse kicks from overhead on to Myles’ head, Myles staggering back, Gates back up on his feet! Gates charging at Myles…but Myles quick to react! Myles with a lariat! NO! Gates ducks and comes back up with an explosive uppercut! ….HOLD ON! Myles grabs him mid-move and flings him around! ..SPINNING SITOUT POWERBOMB! THE POWER OF MYLES! A PIN!!
Deadprez: KICKOUT! Gates still hanging on but shocked that it could’ve all ended just as it started! Gates trying to get back up as Myles now grabbing him by the head and dragging him over to the ropes! Look he’s saying something to Xander now!
Myles (off-mic pointing at Xander): You know you don’t stand a chance!
Xander Payne: Oh yeah, first beat him then open your mouth you piece of shit! Go ahead! Don’t you point at me! I’ll break you!
Gavin Kirkland: Gates sees this as an opportunity!! Gates with elbows to Myles’ torso! Myles momentarily letting go of Gate’s head as Gates jumps up—-PELE KICK!! Myles on one knee!! Gates sees the opening! SHINING WIZARD!!—NO! Myles counters! Myles hoisting up Gates by his leg! ….Gates struggling…he breaks free!! Gates free again! GATES GRABBING MYLES’ ARMS NOW…EAT DEFEAT!! EAT DEFEAT TO MYLES AND THIS MAY BE OVER! Gates crawling over to quickly go for a pin!
Xander Payne: Fuck! A kickout. No doubt the only one who can put Myles down for good is me. Myles fears me and he knows that I’m the most dangerous man in this arena tonight, not his opponent. And he can’t even beat him!
Gavin Kirkland: Gates now picking up Myles back to his feet! Angela here at ringside telling Gates to bring him outside! Gates tossing Myles out of the ring -NO! Myles lands on the apron! Shane noticing this and charging at Myles, BUT MYLES WITH A TACKLE TO THE GUT OF SHANE!! Myles looking to pull something big—HEY WATCH OUT! ANGELA JUST PULLED DOWN MYLES AND HE HIT HIS FACE ON THE WAY DOWN OFF THE APRON! Angela scurrying back to her corner like nothing happened! I don’t think the ref saw it!
Xander Payne: Finally, the show is getting better!
Deadprez: Myles is still recovering from the impact, looks like Shane is back in the game as he slides out of the ring and looking to lay it into Myles! Shane measuring Myles up….SPINNING HEEL KICK!! – NO! Myles ducks under the kick! —MYLES GRABBING SHANE’S FACE! —KNEE STRIKES!! RELENTLESS KNEE STRIKES ONTO THE HEAD OF SHANE! – SHANE SHOVING AWAY MYLES!—JUMPING KNEE STRIKE!! Shane is down for the count, aptly because the ref is counting down now!
Gavin Kirkland: Myles back inside the ring as Angela is screaming at Gates to get back up! Shane looks like he’s out but…HEY WHERE YOU THINK YOU’RE GOING!?
(Xander leaves the booth and gets out near the ring and goes to pick up Shane but ref signals that’s it’s not going to happen!)
Xander Payne: Hey! Don’t tell me what to do! Watch Myles! Keep an eye on him! Do your job!
(ref turns to look at Myles and Angela quickly tries to slide Shane back into the ring, but the ref turns around just in the nick of time and witnesses it, signaling for Angela to exit the arena! The crowd erupts with cheers)
Deadprez: LOOKS LIKE ANGELA IS NO LONGER AT GATES’ CORNER!
Gavin Kirkland: If only Xander stayed put he-
Xander Payne: Keep your mouths shut and call the match, do your job morons!
Deadprez: The ref broke off the count, Shane is getting back on his feet but unaware of Myles perched up on top turnbuckle!! DIVING METEORA! —Shane sidesteps! Myles rolling back on the mat and back on his feet but GATES WITH A SUPERKICK!—GATES NOW GOING DIRECTLY INTO A HEADLOCK AS MYLES ABOUT TO FALL BACK!
Xander Payne: He should be looking to finish it! What’s taking Gates this long?
Gavin Kirkland: I mean, he was your tag partner, you know how tough Myles can be. A simple Superkick won’t put him out!
Deadprez: Myles elbowing Gates! Gates loosening his grip, GATES LETS GO! The strikes too much for Gates to bear—Myles with an irish whip! Gates is flung across the ring, into the ropes—Gates is rebounding!! Myles bends down but—GATES WITH A SUNSET FLIP ATTEMPT!! – NO! Myles rolls over and —a DROPKICK ON A SEATED GATES! PIN!
Gavin Kirkland KICKOUT!
Xander Payne: BOOOO!!
Deadprez: Gates barely hanging on here! –MYLES PICKING UP GATES BY HIS HEAD AND TOSSING HIM OUT OF THE RING! Myles now looking for something here! He’s looking at Gates outside the ring!…. Myles runs back, rebounding off the ropes — TOP CON HILO!!! –NO!!!! GATES MOVES OUT OF THE WAY AND MYLES GOES CRASHING INTO THE BARRICADES!! MYLES MIGHT BE OUT OF THIS! THIS LOOKS BAD FOR THE SOLDIER!
Gavin Kirkland: Xander, Shane told us earlier that he’s merely softening Myles up for you, what do you say about this?
Xander Payne: Good. It’s not like I needed Myles to be softened up or anything, hell, I can take on both of them right now if this was suddenly a triple threat….but I don’t waste time with losers. Certainly not Myles.
Deadprez: Myles seems to be recuperating as Shane now steps out of the ring and is looking to take the fight outside! Myles has no idea Shane is measuring him up from behind! –NO! MYLES QUICKLY TURNS AROUND AND….MYLES WITH A JUMPING DDT!! HE WAS PLAYING POSSUM! Shane now on the floor as Myles getting back up and taunting Xander!
Xander Payne: Yeah yeah whatever, WHY DON’T YOU COME OVER HERE AND LAY A FINGER ON ME?! HUH?!
Gavin Kirkland: Woah, Myles seems to be heading our way…no nevermind, I think he realized the ref is counting down and trying to put Shane back inside the ring! Shane groggy….Myles looking to end this! Myles taking Shane by the hair, looking at Xander as he does so! Xander you seeing this? Is this a messgage? Myles said he’d be your kryptonite!
Xander Payne: Oh please, when did Kryptonite ever put superman down for good? That’s right, never! Fuck Myles and his assumptions, I’m better than him. HEY MYLES FOCUS ON YOUR OPPONENT, NOT AT ME, I’M UNTOUCHABLE!!
Gavin Kirkland: Myles setting up Shane on the top rope in a seated position! Myles might be going for his signature here….NO! Shane Gates with a kick to the chest of Myles, Myles staggering back! ANOTHER kick!! And ANOTHER ONE TO THE FACE!! Myles….NO! MYLES WITH A BURST OF POWER AS HE JUMPS UP AND ….AN ATTEMPT AT A FRANKENSTEINER…BUT GATES GRABS A HOLD OF HIS LEGS!! …ACES HIGH!!! ACES HIGH FROM THE TOP ROPEEE!!!!!!!
Xander Payne: LOOK AT GATES GO WITH THOSE POWERBOMB COMBO!! I TOLD YOU…MYLES SHOULD’VE FOCUSED IN THE RING AND NOT AT ME! NOW IT COMES TO BITE HIM BACK IN THE ASS!
Deadprez: Gates with a pin!! This might be it!
Xander Payne: WTFF?!?! A KICKOUT! THIS MATCH IS RIGGED!
Deadprez: unbelievable, Myles reaching still persevering through this! Shane Gates cannot believe it! Gates pulling Myles back up and into powerbomb position!! This might be it!!– TUNBUCKLE POWERBOMB ONTO THE CORNER!!!! — MYLES WITH A VICIOUS THUD AS HIS SPINE CONTORTS AGAINST THE PADDING! –GATES REVS BACK….CURRRBSTOMMPPP!!!! RIPPCOOORRDDDD MANSLAUGHTER!!!!!!!
Gavin KIrkland: NO!!! Myles gets up right as the curbstomp connects..DE FACTOOO. DE FACTO! OUTTA NOWHERE AT THE RUNNING SHANE GATES!!!! SHANE JUST WALKED RIGHT INTO IT! A PIN BY MYLES!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“Enemy Strike” by Yuki Hayashi plays as Myles has his arms raised by the ref and looks at Xander with contempt in his eyes. Shane Gates rolls out of the ring holding the back of his head and glaring at Myles with killer eyes)
Gina Romano: AND HERE IS YOUR WINNER….THE SOLDIEERRRR…MYYYYLLESS!!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: And there you go folks, what a competitive match, but I cannot help but feel that Xander’s presence at ringside awoke something in Myles that made him keep going, I was sure Gates had him there in those last minutes of the match!
Deadprez: Absolutely, I’m sure Myles didn’t want to look bad in front of Xander, but let’s not forget that Shane literally had it in the bag, and this could’ve gone either way! Poor Angela was evicted out of the building too!
Xander Payne (glaring at Myles): Well, he just got lucky, anyone can beat Shane Gates, no one, and I mean NO ONE can touch me! Not anyone on Showdown and certainly not Myles. I’m the Paynekiller!
(Myles and Xander Payne look at each other as Showdown rolls to commercial)
(The scene returns from the commercial break as Shane Gates is walking backstage after losing his match against Myles. He is holding the back of his head as he seems frustrated about the loss. Suddenly, he stops when he sees something straight ahead of him.)
Shane Gates: What the hell are you doing here?
(The camera goes straight ahead until it stays on Shaker Jones. The crowd gives a positive reaction to Shaker. Shaker is still feeling happy about getting the victory for his team earlier in the night.)
Shaker Jones: Hey, I am minding my own business and basking in my victory earlier tonight. My first victory of Season 13 and it feels great. Despite having my issues with Ryan Wilson, I was able to get the win for the team and to prove that I wasn’t so useless at all.
Shane Gates: Oh, fantastic! I don’t give a fuck at all. I was able to defeat you a couple of weeks ago. Tonight may not have been my night, but I’ll always be better than you, Shaker. You may call yourself “The Canadian Wolf” or whatever the fuck, but it’s still going to be the same Shaker Jones. You’re going to continue falling down the same path before you get discouraged like a bitch and go: “Why aren’t I winning? I believe I’m putting the work and I’m not winning! ? ? ? ” Boo fucking hoo. Grow up, Shaker. We lose matches. Sometimes, people lose than others, and that’s most certainly you. Can you believe that I go from headlining War Games last year to not being on the card at all with the likes of you? Is this how Showdown treats The Fucking Dynasty himself?
Shaker Jones: You know what? I still have a bone to pick with you, Shane.
Shane Gates (sarcasm): Oooooh, you do (rolls his eyes)?
Shaker Jones: Let’s not forget that you cheated in our match a couple of weeks ago by poking me in the eye. I had that victory right there, and that’s not cool at all. But, I thank you at the same time. The loss provided me a time to reflect on where I wanted to take my career. It revealed what I needed to do to get some victories. The Punk Rock Country Boy was not going to work. It was still the same Shaker Jones from when I joined this company. I was stagnant and not making any improvements. I’m all about wanting to improve myself and prove to people that I can evolve and confirm that I am not the same man I once was. Shane, you wouldn’t be able to touch The Canadian Wolf in the ring. I wasn’t him when we faced the last time. I’m challenging you for a rematch next week. We’re both not on the Territorial Invasion card. We might as well make Jenny Punk and management regret not putting us on the show.
Shane Gates: Alright, I accept your challenge. It doesn’t matter what persona you bring to the ring next week; I’ll still drop you on your fucking head.
(Shane Gates leaves Shaker Jones as he continues to walk forward. Shaker Jones looks ahead to the direction Shane went at.)
Shaker Jones: We’ll see about that.
(The scene transitions to ringside.)
( Showdown cuts to the ring, where Gina is standing by in all of her Fashion Nova finery. She smiles brightly and raises the microphone to her perfectly glossed lips. )
Gina Romano: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SCHEDULED FOR…
Crowd: ONE FALL!
( ‘Confident’ by Demi Lovato begins to play across the PA system, and the crowd greets Io Ishimori with a nice reaction )
Gina Romano: INTRODUCING FIRST… FROM OSAKA, JAPAN… WEIGHING IN AT 114 POUNDS… PLEASE WELCOME IO ISHIMORI!!!
Gavin Kirkland: Where’s that dumb ass cat?
Gavin Kirkland: :mjgrin:
Deadprez: Last week, Io Ishimori expressed her annoyance over being left off the Showdown card, one week after taking the legendary Cameron Ella Ava to her limit! I can’t wait to see what Io has in store for Constance Blevins tonight.
Gavin Kirkland: Well if Io somehow manages to bring that energy to the ring tonight she brought against Cam, this could very well end up being a solid Match of the Week contender!
( Io slides into the ring and gets set, while her music fades out. It’s soon replaced by ‘No More’ by Disturbed. )
Gina Romano: AND HER OPPONENT BEING ACCOMPANIED TO THE RING BY MINERVA … FROM BALTIMORE, MARYLAND… WEIGHING IN AT 120 POUNDS… SHE IS ONE-HALF OF THE UNIFIED TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS… PLEASE WELCOME, MINERVA!!!
( Constance and Minerva walk onto the stage with their Unified Tag Team Championships held up in the air. They smirk at one another and begin making their way down the ramp. )
Gavin Kirkland: :blessed: Here comes double trouble! Last week, Constance and Minerva went one-on-one with The Visual Prophet and Mr. DEDEDE is separate matches as part of the beat the clock challenge centered around the Answers World Championship match at Territorial Invasion. Constance gave Viz everything she had, but the number one contender for the ACW ended up beating Constance in just over eleven minutes.
Deadprez: And somehow Minerva survived Mr. DEDEDE, and was able to keep the champ from having all the power going into the AWC match at TI. It was a smart and well done match for Minerva last week even if she didn’t get the win.
Gavin Kirkland: Heavenly Hell is definitely riding high this week and as we found out last night on Dynasty, they are going to be challenged at TI by Fatal Destiny! Heavenly Hell will defend their championships and that should definitely be an interesting match.
Gavin Kirkland: More like a mismatch, but I digress.
( Constance slides into the ring and sheds her jacket, getting set for the match. The referee checks with both women and calls for the bell. )
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Deadprez: Here we go! Both women are locking up and it’s one-half of the Unified Tag Team Champions that takes control! Constance definitely has the size and strength advantage over Io Ishimori and she bullies the smaller girl into the corner! Constance with a series of knee strikes that connect with Io’s stomach, which has Io doubled over! Constance nails her with a European uppercut, and brings Io down with a snapmare!
Gavin Kirkland: My little gothic queen is unleashing a series of kicks that are connecting right between Io’s shoulder blades, and Constance has gotten started quickly here tonight! She pulls Io up by the hair and tosses her into the corner, running forward, and nailing Io with a running knee to the face! Constance grabs Io… RUNNING BULLDOG INTO THE MAT! WE HAVE OUR FIRST COVER!
Deadprez: Io is able to get the shoulder up! Constance doesn’t let that deter her though! She stays on the attack and mounts Io, hammering away with those closed-fist punches! Io is trying to fend off Constance, but the champ is being overly aggressive here tonight! The referee is finally getting involved and telling Constance to back off, and the champion obliges by getting to her feet. Io rolls up to her knees, but here comes Constance again! She is stomping away on the lower back now of Io Ishimori! Io is trying to crawl towards the ropes, but Constance grabs her by the ankle and locks her in a modified version of an ankle lock!
Gavin Kirkland: Io is quick to reverse that though and she rolls towards the ropes! Io drops to the outside, and I’m not sure if that’s the best place for her. Minerva is licking her lips and sizing up Io Ishimori and that allows Constance to reach through the ropes and grab Io by the hair! Constance pulls Io back into the ring, but Io hits her with a forearm shot. Constance’s grip on Io is released, and Io quickly scrambles to her feet! Constance regains her composure and charges for Io, looking to hit her with a clothesline, but Io ducks! Io spins around, looking to connect with a kick, but Constance ducks, grabs that ankle again, and brings Io down to the mat! Constance bends Io’s leg back so that’s sandwiched between both of their bodies and she reaches around to grab Io by the neck!
Deadprez: Io immediately looks to break Constance’s grip, and she’s working those hands. Io is prying apart Constance’s fingers now and bending them back. Constance lets go of the submission, however she maintains control of the ankle! Io is fighting her though, and she manages to land a kick on Constance! Constance doesn’t release the ankle, but Io kicks her again, which causes Constance to stumble back, and that allows Io to get up and run the ropes!
Gavin Kirkland: Io hits the ropes and looks to take Constance down, but Constance with a big boot right to the face! Io hits the mat, and Constance quickly reaches down and scoops her up. She holds Io up in the air, allowing the blood to rush to Io’s head, before dropping her with a brainbuster! Constance with a cover!
Deadprez: Io gets the shoulder up!
Gavin Kirkland: Io showing a lot of resiliency in the early stages of this match, which is pretty much what we’ve come to expect from her. Constance, however, seems to have a point to prove tonight. Constance pulls Io up and whips her into the corner. Constance with a running corner clothesline! Io slumps to the mat. Constance is now stomping away at her! Constance jams her foot under Io’s chin, and starts choking her!
Referee: ONE… TWO… THREE… FOUR…
Deadprez: Constance breaks right before the referee hits five! Constance is right back to work though, and she’s pulling Io up. Constance with a chop to the chest of Io Ishimori! Constance with another one! And another! Constance is chopping the hell out of Io, and Io’s chest is turning bright red! Constance grabs Io and Irish whips her into the opposite corner! Constance lies in wait as Io slams into the corner, but she comes staggering back out! CONSTANCE TAKES OFF RUNNING AND LOOKS TO HIT IO WITH A SPEAR! SPEAR!
Gavin Kirkland: NO! IO MOVED OUT OF THE WAY AND CONSTANCE SLAMS SHOULDER FIRST INTO THE RING POST!
Deadprez: Constance rolls to the outside and Minerva rushes to her partner’s side, checking on her. The Unified Tag Team Champion seems to be in a tremendous amount of pain right now, and that is allowing Io Ishimori to regroup inside the ring. Minerva is whispering to Constance right now, and even though I can’t make out what’s being said between the champions, Constance is nodding and is back on her feet. She’s shaking out her shoulder and climbs back up on the apron. Io is back up and she rushes for the ropes, looking to knock Constance right back down to the ground, but Constance drops down! Io is able to stop her momentum right before she slams into the ropes and she shouts at Constance!
Io Ishimori (Off Mic): GET BACK IN THE RING!
Gavin Kirkland: :usure:
Deadprez: :lupe: It wasn’t really going that well for Io when Constance was in the ring…
Gavin Kirkland: Constance makes her way back up the steps, while Io scrambles up the top rope! Constance quickly takes the initiative and scrambles up to the top turnbuckle as well! Io tries to hit Constance with a stiff right hand, but Constance blocks the shot! She nails Io with a right of her own and follows it up with several stiff forearm shots to the jaw! Io has just not been able to get in any offense tonight and Constance is just hammering away on her right now! Io’s foot slips from the ropes, but Constance hangs on to her! Constance hooks Io by the tights… SUPERPLEX! SUPERPLEX! CONSTANCE JUST TOOK IO DOWN WITH A SUPERPLEX FROM THE TOP ROPE!
Deadprez: CONSTANCE TAKES A FEW SECONDS TO RECOVER AND NOW SHE CRAWLS ON TOP OF IO FOR THE COVER!
Gavin Kirkland: IO GOT HER SHOULDER UP!
Deadprez: To be honest, Constance looks a little surprised by that. She rolls off Io, and sits up, looking to the outside. Minerva slams her hands down on the apron and encourages her partner to stay on Io. Constance grabs Io by the waist and deadlifts her up… GERMAN SUPLEX!
Gavin Kirkland: However Constance keeps those arms hooked and she is lifting Io up… and she slams her down again! Constance is right back up, and she’s got Io! She’s got the trifecta now! CONSTANCE REFUSING TO LET GO! SHE PULLS IO UP ONE TIME AND THROWS HER BACK! RELEASE GERMAN SUPLEX INTO THE ROPES! CONSTANCE GRABS IO AND GOES FOR THE COVER!!!
Deadprez: IO GETS HER SHOULDER UP AGAIN!!
Gavin Kirkland: :lupe: But look at the look on Constance’s face, Deadprez. I think she’s tired of fucking around with Io Ishimori. Constance gets to her knees and she begins unloading those massive forearm shots to Io’s face! Io isn’t able to defend herself right now and Constance continues to unload on her! Over and over Constance slams her forearm into Io’s face and Io’s nose has been busted open! Constance takes Io by the hair and slams her face first into the mat!! Constance is just relentless right now! She continues to slam Io’s face into the mat and the referee is having to physically get involved now! Constance shoves the referee away from her and pulls up Io! CONSTANCE GETS IO IN POSITION FOR ‘LIONESS TOUCH’!!! SHE CONNECTS WITH THE CRADLE DDT!
Deadprez: BUT CONSTANCE ISN’T DONE! SHE’S GOT IO RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING AND HAS HER IN THE CLOVERLEAF!!!
Gavin Kirkland: Oh man. Io isn’t even going to try and get out of this! She is tapping and the referee calls for the bell!
( Ding! Ding! Ding! )
Gina Romano: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… HERE IS YOUR WINNER VIA SUBMISSION… CONSTANCE BLEVINS!!!
( ‘No More’ by Disturbed begins to play across the PA system, and the crowd reacts to Constance accordingly. Minerva grabs both tag team championships and slides in the ring, as the referee helps Io out. )
Deadprez: Pretty decisive victory from Constance Blevins tonight. She continued Heavenly Hell’s momentum from last week, while putting her own setback behind her. Now Constance and Minerva both can turn their attention towards Territorial Invasion and whatever kind of challenge Fatal Destiny might present to them!
Gavin Kirkland: Miho Li and Karina-Ann present absolutely no threat to Constance and Minerva. They could throw the whole damn state of Alabama at Heavenly Hell come TI, but it’s not going to be enough to knock off the tag team champions.
Deadprez: I don’t even disagree with you because Constance couldn’t be touched tonight. She gave Io absolutely NO openings tonight and just dominated the match from start to finish. Congratulations to Constance Blevins!
( Heavenly Hell celebrate Constance’s victory, while a disappointed Io Ishimori is helped to the back. The camera takes a final shot of Heavenly Hell posing with their championships before the scene fades. )
(The scene fades into Mr. DEDEDE in his ring gear. The Answers World Championship is standing in front of the coffee table. The fans instantly boo the champion as he seems to be warming up for his match against Felix Hartley.)
???: Mr. DEDEDE, can I have a moment of your time?
(Max A. Million enters the camera shot with a microphone in his possession. He holds the microphone close to the Chairman of the Board, almost feeling afraid for his well-being. Mr. DEDEDE has an annoyed expression on his face. He doesn’t appreciate being interrupted. He is trying to get in the match mojo at the moment, and Max could mess DEDEDE’s mindset up.)
Mr. DEDEDE: I don’t know. Can you? Do you believe that this is an appropriate time to interrupt me? I am trying to have a moment of zen before I go out and tear Felix Hartley a new asshole, but I get the feeling she’d like that because I know how whores operate. However, I am a married man now and I only got eyes for my wife. Someone like Felix should be alarming. On the one hand, I shouldn’t be intimidated by a woman. Women can’t defeat men like myself. I know, I can defeat Felix Hartley. I know I can beat her in my sleep like most of the pimps at the brothels she used to sell her musty ass pussy at. She might as well be the Savannah Sunshine to my Axl Willow because I will beat the living shit out of her and in front of whatever child is in this arena. That is not the point, Max; why the hell are you here, anyway? Do you know that you’re interrupting my moment of zen?
Max A. Million: I apologize, sir, but I wanted to get your thoughts on The Visual Prophet and how he has the opportunity to tip the scales in his favor at Territorial Invasion?
Mr. DEDEDE: You just need to remind me of last week. :unamused: Do you think I enjoy the thought of my wife wasting her precious time to watch me make a mockery of myself? I didn’t lose to Minerva and Minerva didn’t beat me. Minerva survived me. Just like every woman I have faced throughout my career. Including that scorned little cunt Cameron Ella Ava currently trying her best to ruin my marriage. She, like every other bitch to oppose me, could at best only survive me. The clock is the reason why The Visual Prophet has the opportunity to tip the scales into his favor. He has all the possibilities in the world to make this first opportunity at a World Championship mean something. He loses at Territorial Invasion, and his ass is in the back of the line. He has no excuse for when he loses this match. Viz is going to be desperate to display a level playing field when going up against The Gawd, but there’s no such thing as a level playing field with The Gawd. With the opportunity to shift this match to his favor, there is no level playing field. Viz will believe that whatever he does is going to tip the scales against me, but I’ve been in this game for a long time. I can handle whatever gets thrown at me. Viz needs to be concerned about the inevitable moment in the 11th hour, in the thick of the fog, when the dust is far from settled, and when he’s thrown everything at me, and it still isn’t enough. I’ve weathered every storm imaginable, every possible maelstrom, every fathomable hailstorms, to hellfire and brimstone. I’ve withstood what should have been total calamity. The question is, will he.
Max A. Million: That question may be answered come Territorial Invasion if you manage to overcome whatever odds Viz chooses to stack against you. The word on social media, as a matter of fact, is that you are the underdog going into this match —
Mr. DEDEDE: Me as the underdog? :mjlol: When have I been the underdog in anything? I’m no underdog. Viz may have the upper hand in this match, but I’m not helpless whatsoever. If I’m an underdog, it would mean that Viz having the upper hand is holding me back. It’s not holding me back. I don’t care what stipulation Viz picks for Territorial Invasion. I’m still walking out as Answers World Champion. Bottom fucking line. Now if you excuse me, I got someone’s undefeated streak to end.
(Mr. DEDEDE leaves Max A. Million and exits out the locker room.)
Gavin Kirkland: Mr. DEDEDE versus Felix Hartley! Champion versus Champion is next!
(Commercial break featuring Gawdzilla Pro© tracksuits with Mr. DEDEDE. It may cost you as much as your college tuition, but it’s worth it!)
(The Camera opens to a panning shot of the arena as we see Gina Romano in the ring.)
Gina Romano: Ladies and Gentlemen… the following match is scheduled for…
Crowd: ONE FALL!!
Gina Romano: AND IT IS A CHAMPION VERSUS CHAMPION MATCH!
(“Chun-Li” by Nicki Minaj hits as Felix Hartley walks out into the stage with the New Breed Championship around her waist. She sways her hips for the horny fans before walking down the ramp and putting a hand up to tell the pimple-faced virgins that she’s too good for them.)
Gina Romano: Introducing first, making her way to the ring from Las Vegas, Nevada, weighing in at 114 pounds… she is the EAW New Breed Champion… FEEEEEEELLLLLIIIIXXXXXXX HHHHHAAAARRRRTTTTTTLLLEEEEEYYYYYY!!!
Gavin Kirkland: GODDESS YES! FELIX IS HERE AND THE WHOLE WORLD IS SINGING TO ME RIGHT NOW! Why aren’t you celebrating with me, Prez? We are in the presence of the New Breed Champion! The Stallion herself!
Deadprez: Well I’m as happy to see Felix as anyone else but you take it to another level, Gavin. The New Breed Stallion is a confident woman but tonight she faces maybe the toughest singles challenge of her career and only just two weeks before she faces Archimedes J. Manson and Kai Zolomon in a triple threat for her title! A match that she doesn’t even have to be involved in the finish in order to lose!
Gavin Kirkland: You dare question the power of the Stallion? You dare disregard THE POWER OF TITTIES?!? She will destroy them in that shamefully sausage filled match before returning home right here to Showdown to continue her rule on top of the entire New Breed Division!
(Felix slings up the steps before slipping through the ropes, leaving one leg in the ropes briefly to give a flirty glance back at the camera. She holds her title high and poses in the ring before her music cuts and is replaced by “Let It Go” by A$AP Ferg as Mr. DEDEDE walks out onto the stage alongside Kassidy Heart. DEDEDE has the Answers World Championship around his waist and Kassidy has the Universal Women’s Championship over her shoulder. Kassidy looks at her husband briefly as if to ask if he’s certain about the match. DEDEDE looks back at her, placing his hands on her shoulders and simply nods his head before turning and beginning to make his way down the ramp with Kassidy following right behind.)
Gina Romano: And her opponent, making his way to the ring from the Ryan Adams estate of Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, weighing in at 227 pounds… accompanied by Kassidy Heart… he is the EAW Chairman and the reigning Answers World Champion… MIISSSSSTTEEERRR DEEEEEDEEEEEEDEEEEEEE!!!!!
Deadprez: The Chairman was not pleased with himself after last week, getting distracted and entertained by his opponent to the point that he missed the chance to win the Beat the Clock challenge! He even released a personal apology to his wife earlier this week regarding everything that happened. Tonight I expect to see a very focused Mr. DEDEDE!
Gavin Kirkland: Are you kidding me? Fuck that! He’s in the ring for some personal time with Felix Hartley! I love Minerva but goddamn this is a whole other level! I expect to see DEDEDE focused on something, but not what you’re thinking.
(DEDEDE looks back at Kassidy one more time before sliding into the ring, removing the Answers World Championship and holding it over his head before taking his place in the corner and handing the belt out to Kassidy. The referee retrieved Felix’s belt and hands it out to the time keeper before calling for the bell.)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Deadprez: We are underway with his much anticipated matchup! The Answers World Champion versus the New Breed Champion! DEDEDE looks like he’s got lasers coming out of his eyes as he stares at Felix! Felix steps out… What in the fuck is this?
Gavin Kirkland: HAHA! BRILLIANT! I LOVE IT! Felix is out here and she’s twirling for DEDEDE and swinging her hips for him! She saw Minerva last week and clearly knew she could have success with this strategy! Felix now turns and reaches over to touch her toes! Showing ALL that ass, class, and sass to the Chairman! Felix is a true goddess! Look at that body! Those breasts as she stands up to an erect position… not the only thing erect right now… she turns around and—
Deadprez: SPEAR!! SPEAR!! SPEAR!! DEDEDE JUST TORE FELIX IN HALF AND HE LOOKS LIKE A MAN POSSESSED! HE GRABS FELIX BY THE HAIR AND DRAGS HER LIFELESS BODY BACK TO THE CENTER OF THE RING! HE GRABS HER BY THE HEAD AND DEADLIFTS HER UP! MK DRIVER! THE DOUBLE UNDERHOOK BRAINBUSTER CONNECTS ON THE NEW BREED CHAMPION! FELIX IS OUT! DEDEDE MAKES THE COVER!
Ref: ONEEEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOO! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Gina Romano: Here is your winner… MR. DEDEDE!!!
(“Let It Go” picks back up but DEDEDE doesn’t seem to be done as he wraps a hand around Felix’s throat, smashing her head back against the ring mat.)
(DING! DING! DING! DING! DING! DING!)
Deadprez: DEDEDE WITH AN ABSOLUTE DISPLAY OF DOMINANCE! THE REFEREE NOW DIVING IN AND TRYING TO PULL THE CHAIRMAN OFF! DEDEDE SHOVES HIS EMPLOYEE AWAY AND STANDS TO HIS FEET, LOOKING DOWN AT THE BROKEN BODY OF FELIX HARTLEY!
Gavin Kirkland: :kellycry:
Deadprez: Let It be known, Mr. DEDEDE is done playing games. This is a man on a mission we’ve seen here tonight. Anyone who faces him will truly incur the wrath of Gawd!
(Kassidy rolls into the ring and hands DEDEDE the Answers World Championship as the referee now checks on Felix who was dropped right on her skull. DEDEDE and Kassidy hold their Championships high as the camera fades elsewhere.)
( Return to the Bozo Victims Unit cruiser scene from earlier in the day, where Jamie O’Hara finds himself in a perilous situation in the backseat with Detective Biggums, Assidy Hart and Ty the White Guy, as well as Ahren Fournier and Detective SKabler in the front. SKabler had too much to drink for his own good, and has been behind the wheel swerving in an unmarked fake police car for miles. Soon an actual police car lets off its sirens, and the BVU cruiser is followed by an actual squad car. )
Ahren Fournier: Uh oh.
Ty the White Guy: Shit! Fucking 5-0!
Jamie O’Hara: Fuck me. (facepalming)
Assidy Hart (to Detective Biggums): Mike put that shit out!
( Detective Biggums quickly brushes the lit end of the spliff against the back of the passenger seat. He tucks it into the back of the passenger seat. )
Detective SKabler: FUCK, Mike why the fuck you light that shit up in here man??
Detective Biggums: Fam you the one speeding in a residential area and shit! You the one who made it hot!
Detective SKabler: FUCK, no way I can’t believe this. No way I’m actually getting pulled over in Arkansas. Arkansas!
Ahren Fournier: Yeah, not gunna lie, this is pretty bad.
Jamie O’Hara: Dare I ask the significance of Arkansas…
Ahren Fournier: It’s no better than being in Kansas. Except with an AR in the beginning, which stands for “Asshole Rednecks”.
Detective SKabler: :noah: Should I pull over?
Ty the White Guy: NO!
Jamie O’Hara & Assidy Hart: YES!
Ty the White Guy: No no no guys y’all don’t understand, I already have a fucking record. We’re in fucking Asshole Redneck Kansas, there’s no way we’re not all getting fucked for this. Lose him Chris please!
Detective SKabler: FUCK!
( Chris slowly stops the vehicle to the side of the road. Time slightly elapses, and two police officers exit their undercover squad car sporting dark shades. One of the officers is sporting a porn stache and wears a badge reading “Deputy Mike T. Bhizzoop”, while the other officer is sporting a handlebar mustache, a confederate pin on his chest, and a badge reading “Sgt Terrance E. Bollea”. Sgt Bollea approaches the driver’s side of the car, and he knocks on the window. Meanwhile Assidy Hart is spraying her Bath & Body Works pumpkin apple fragrance all over the vehicle, and puts it back in her purse. )
Detective Biggums: Cmon Jamie do something! :damn:
Jamie O’Hara: What in God’s name could I possibly do???
Detective Biggums: I don’t know fam use your white privilege or something :krabs: You supposed to be the Team Captain don’t disappear on us now! I can’t go to jail, I wouldn’t survive in there.
Detective SKabler: Just shut the fuck up already let me do the talking.
( SKabler rolls the window down. )
Sergeant Bollea: How’s it going brother.
Detective SKabler: Hi how are ya :grinning:
Sergeant Bollea: How high am I? No brother. The real question is how high are you?
Detective SKabler: Excuse me officer
( SKabler lifts up his sunglasses, and squinting his bloodshot eyes to read Sgt Terrance E. Bollea’s name tag)
Detective SKabler: Officer Ebola, but what ever do you mean?
Sergeant Bollea: I think you know exactly what I mean pal. Do you have any idea how fast you were going jack?
Detective SKabler: Oh my! I’m sorry :grinning: Me and my best buds were just too excited, you see we’re sports entertainers, which means we put smiles on people’s faces! I apologize for my hasty driving, we were just on our way to do a charity event for some orphans. I suppose I let the excitement get the better of me. I just can’t wait to spread some positivity! 🙂
( Deputee Bhizzoop approaches the drivers side. )
Deputee Bhizzoop: Howdy ho! I’d compliment you on the wheels, but I can tell you’re not from around here. Come to think of it, it doesn’t seem like you’re actually an officer of the law. Let me ask you, my boy, do you know what the penalty is for impersonating an officer?
Detective SKabler: Excuse me but I’d prefer if you don’t refer to me as “boy”, that is racially insensitive you know 🙂
Sergeant Bollea: *sniff, sniff* Hmm it sure smells funky in that car of yours doesn’t it brother? Do me a favor, I’m going to grab the breathalyzer, and when I come back we’re going to just check and see if you haven’t had a little too much to drink. Then we’ll do the same for your friends. Does that sound good brother?
Detective SKabler: No sir actually it does not!
Sergeant Bollea: What if you were dragged out of your car by your neck and forced to take the test back at the station, would THAT sound good brother?
Detective SKabler: Well sir I’d love to see you try :grinning:
Deputee Bhizoop: Wait a second, (looking through the back window) is that Jamie O’Hara?
( Jamie asks Assidy Hart to roll the window down. Deputee Bhizoop gasps, and Jamie gives him an uncomfortable grin, a nod and a wave. )
Deputee Bhizoop: Holy shit! It is! The top ledge himself! Holy shit man holy shit me and my friends in our side servers love you! What are you doing down here in Little Rock? Aren’t you supposed to be wrestling full time in Japan now?
Jamie O’Hara: I’ve got a Showdown event to attend tonight. And no, I’m not supposed to be in Japan. What made you think that?
Deputee Bhizoop: :noah: Brian Meltzer lied to me again.
Sergeant Bollea: So we got a wrestling legend in the house huh? Say Mr. Jamie O’Hara, let me ask, what are you doing in the car with these ni- (clears throat) these nice citizens?
Jamie O’Hara: Uh, well.. This was supposed to be a team building exercise for the upcoming War Games match we’re all competing in. Suffice to say I’ve failed miserably.
Ahren Fournier: (under his breath) We’ll have plenty of time for team building when we’re behind bars.
Deputee Bhizoop: Behind bars? Nonsense! Don’t even worry about it. Jamie honest to goodness, you were my hero back in the indies. I’d still be watching your every move if you hadn’t gone mainstream, but I just can’t deal with the Extreme Assholes and Wiggers, if it ain’t in Japan or in a barn I ain’t buying it know what I mean?
( Bhizoop and Jamie share an awkward laugh while Sgt Bollea is listening to a radio transmission from elsewhere on his walkie talkie. )
Deputee Bhizoop: Good gobbledy gooker Jamie-san, you’re as cool in person as the dirtsheets say you are. Look I’ll talk to the old man for you and everything should be fine and dandy. He’s teetering on dementia anyway so I don’t think he’ll be too much of a bother.
( Deputee Bhizoop puts his arm around Sergeant Bollea and attempts to convince him to let them off free. The entire car is overhearing the conversation with collective trepidation, and we can overhear Sergeant Bollea pleading “can’t we at least arrest the black ones brother? :noah: ” After a slight elapse in time, Sergeant Bollea approaches the vehicle again. )
Sergeant Bollea: Alright jack this won’t take too long before you’re on your way. If you don’t mind can I please see your license and registration?
Detective SKabler: Yea no problem officer. But if you don’t mind can you please SUCK MY DICK
( Detective SKabler switches to drive and peels off, leaving Sergeant Bollea eating his dust. Detective Bhizzoop and Sergeant Bollea stand by, baffled by what just occurred, while the Bozo Victims Unit cruiser speeds off until it’s out of sight. )
( As the audience waits intently, Gina Romano can be seen standing front and center in the middle of the ring. )
( DING! DING! DING! )
Gina Romano: The following contest is a cross-promotional triple threat match, scheduled for ONE FALL!!! And it is our MAIN EVENT OF THE EVENING!!!!
( “Ultimate Battle” by ZENTA [EAW Edit] hits, and the audience gives a raucous ovation as Jamie O’Hara makes his usual confident stroll out to the ring dressed to compete, wearing a #ClubShowdown bandana over his face. )
Gina Romano: Introducing first, residing in Los Angeles, California by way of Melbourne, Australia, weighing in tonight at 195 POOOUNNNDSSS!!! HE IS THE SHOWDOWN TEAM CAPTAIN OF THE 2019 WAR GAMES MATCH, JJJAAAAMMIEEEEEE OOOOOO’HARRAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!
Gavin Kirkland: I don’t know about you Mr. Prez-who-is-dead, but I consider tonight to be a must win match for our Showdown Team Captain! Hell in my view, every match between now and Territorial Invasion is a must-win for Jamie! Let’s face it, last year it was one of our guys who took the pin fall in the War Games match. To top it off, we’ve been getting ransacked by other brands especially in our New Breed division. Then we have to suffer a travesty of a loss last night after The GOAT was robbed by that disgusting ginger wench, Ms. Extreme! Couldn’t Camille have at least cut us a break out of respect for her brother in law :mjcry:
Deadprez: It was a big win last night from Ms. Extreme in the main event of Dynasty when she defeated Showdown’s Ahren Fournier and Dynasty’s Serena Bennett. That’s going to do a world of momentum for Voltage, who are already known for having a tight knit locker room culture as it is. O’Hara on the other hand has got his hands full just with his partners alone, who aren’t exactly the easiest people to work with. I’m sure I speak for all of the Showdown faithful when I say we all want to see O’Hara lead by example and get the dub tonight.
Gavin Kirkland: Let’s face it, the people who watch Showdown are casual fans :mjcry: They just want to see invasions, the only Showdown faithful are YOU AND I DEADPREZ! YOU AND I!
( ‘Mark My Words’ by Doll Skin plays, and Raven Roberts walks out onto the stage dressed to compete and wearing a Voltage themed crop top. She is met with mixed reactions, mostly due to the brand loyalty from the fans in attendance. She looks around at the audience and grins before rolling her eyes, and continuing down the ramp with her CITV briefcase in tow. )
Gina Romano: His opponents… first, representing Voltage, from Las Vegas, Nevada, she is the 2019 CASH IN THE VAULT BRIEFCASE HOLDER!!! RRRRRRAVVEEEEEEEEEEEENNNNN RRROOOBEEEEEEEEEEEERTTSSS!!!
Deadprez: You might be wrong about that Gavin, it’s been a little while since Raven has heard this many boos from an audience, I think the Showdown faithful is in full force tonight and Raven understands that as popular as she is, she is in enemy territory tonight.
Gavin Kirkland: Having watched her for a full season back on Empire, I can tell you straight up that she likes it that way. She’s a hellcat, a firecracker, a long legged big breasted chaos receptacle at heart! No matter how much she tries to clean up her act! We saw Raven put people on the shelf left and right, and when she was New Breed Champion she routinely went to other brands to topple the challenges that were met there.
Deadprez: There could be a chance that the War Games turns into enemy territory depending on how the odds stack up, so I figure it’s a good thing she’s prepared.
Gavin Kirkland: Good for who?! Not us damn it!
Deadprez: You know what I mean.
( ‘Ambitionz az a Ridah’ by Tupac comes on, and the audience gives a thunderous ovation almost rivaling the reaction given for Jamie O’Hara. TLA rolls out to the stage sitting in a Dynasty-themed lowrider. He jumps out of the driver’s seat, and engages the audience before continuing to the ring. )
Gina Romano: And representing Dynasty, residing in The Poon Palace in Miami, Florida, weighing in at 210 POOOUNNDSSS.. TTTTTTTTTTTTT LLLLLLLLLLLLL AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!
Gavin Kirkland: YOU WERE SAYING DEADPREZ? WHAT’S WRONG WITH THESE PEOPLE! HE’S THE ENEMY!
Deadprez: TLA is one of EAW’s most beloved Elitists, probably in this company’s history when you think of sheer popularity! But to add on top of that, he has had several amazing runs here on the blue brand over the years, including just last season! Showdown fans haven’t forgotten about TLA, but I will give you this Gavin, at the end of the day he ain’t fighting for us anymore.
Gavin Kirkland: Exactly! As entertaining as he may be, he’s even that much more dangerous.
Deadprez: Who would ever forget about the 2015 War Games match, where TLA led Dynasty Wrestling into battle as the Team Captain against Team EAW led by the Chairman at the time, Zack Crash! It was because of TLA’s leadership and his teammates that Dynasty ended up beating the rest of Team EAW, and handed the Crash regime the first major blow that eventually caused all the other dominos to fall.
Gavin Kirkland: If TLA could do all that for Dynasty four years ago, imagine what he’ll be able to do in 2019 when he’s done nothing but improve by leaps and bounds. His teammates are better too :lupe:.
( DING! DING! DING! )
Deadprez: Ay don’t let him get into your head Gav! TLA’s a bonafide great and all that but he’s not The Ace! As Jamie O’Hara rushes right over to him and starts firing away with forearms! There’s a whole lot of history between O’Hara and TLA! These guys took each other to war over the World Heavyweight Championship over on Voltage back in Season 11! TLA fighting back with body blows, while O’Hara changes forearms to closed fists. He plants a big time knee, while TLA’s back is to the corner of the ring! Jamie lifting a left knee, followed by another right one! Simultaneous right hands from both TLA and Jamie! Raven turns Jamie around and rocks him with a European uppercut. The back of Jamie’s head cracks into TLA’s face! Both Jamie and TLA are leaned back against the turnbuckle, side by side, and Roberts fires off with a KNIFE EDGE CHOP TO JAMIE!
Gavin Kirkland: ONE TO TLA!
Gavin Kirkland: TLA! JAMIE! TLA! BACK! AND FORTH! Roberts sends TLA across the ring with an Irish whip, and O’Hara uses the opportunity to blast her with a shoot kick! Roberts right back with a forearm! Blocked by Jamie, another stinging kick to the thigh! Spin kick to the midsection, but Roberts catches the boot. TLA comes right back after her and Roberts spins O’Hara by the leg – into a discus backhand from TLA cracking across the jaw of O’Hara! Rapid fire multiple forearms, shoot kick to the ribs, and he blasts Raven across the face with a corkscrew back elbow! IN EXCELSIS FROM O’HARA!!!!!! SHOULDER ROLL EVASION FROM TLA DUCKS UNDER THE BICYCLE KNEE, CODEBREAKER FROM ROBERTS!!! TLA COUNTERS WITH A VERY MEXICAN UPPERCUT! POP UP EUROPEAN UPPERCUT SENDS ROBERTS FLOPPING OVER TO THE MIDDLE ROPE, CHEST FIRST! O’Hara comes after TLA from behind with the STRAIGHT JACKET CLUTCH! TLA spins quickly and drops to his back, propelling O’Hara up with his legs and sending him landing sternum first over the middle rope! TLA rebounding off the ropes following that leapfrog and is going for ‘305’!!!! TIGER FEINT KICK PLANTED ON ROBERTS AND O’HARA SIMULTANEOUSLY!!!
Deadprez: O’Hara and Roberts roll away, with Roberts ending up in the drop zone! TLA recognizes that and rushes up the corner to the top rope, not wasting a single second, and he’s looking to turn ‘305’ INTO ‘420’! SHOOTING STAR PRESS!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: ROBERTS ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY WITH A REVERSE SOMERSAULT! TLA BRILLIANTLY STICKS THE LANDING AND ROLLS THROUGH IT! BUT RUNS INTO THE SLINGBLADE BY O’HARA! JOHN WOO DROPKICK INTO RAVEN ROBERTS, SENDING ROBERTS CRASHING AGAINST ANOTHER TURNBUCKLE CORNER, AND AGAIN IN ANOTHER DROP ZONE! JAMIE O’HARA LOOKING AROUND NODDING HIS HEAD, BEFORE SPRINGING OVER THE ROPES AND DASHING UP THE TURNBUCKLE TO THE TOP ROPE HIMSELF! O’HARA WASTING LITTLE TIME GETTING UP THERE, AND HE STANDS OVER THE 2019 CITV WINNER WITH THE GENKI CANNON IN MIND!
Deadprez: AND TLA TROLLISHLY DRAGS RAVEN ROBERTS OUT OF THE DROP ZONE! O’Hara standing up there looking less than amused, while TLA wags his finger and gives the Team Showdown Captain a cheeky grin. Now he pulls Raven up from the floor and dumps her through the ropes to the outside, prompting Jamie to jump off the top rope and land on his feet before quickly approaching TLA. Blocked right hand by TLA! Forearm! Forearm! Shoot kick, jumping knee to the body, all delivered in lightning speed succession! He turns to run for the ropes, but O’Hara grabs him by the tights from behind. TLA counters into a front body-scissors wheelbarrow pin, but O’Hara stands his ground and counters with a JUMPING DOUBLE FOOT STOMP straight into TLA’s chest as he’s rolled forward to the floor! TLA sits up holding his chest, STINGING PUNT KICK STRAIGHT INTO THE SPINE!!! TLA holding the small of his back now, and O’Hara goes for a low superkick! Evaded by TLA who counters with a roll up, but O’Hara rolls through the rollup and transitions into a ROLLING GAMENGIRI!!! That caught La Pantera Sexual!
Gavin Kirkland: Speaking of which I’m missing the ladies from the Poon Palace tonight! TLA’s come to enemy territory alone, I want poons! :noah:
Deadprez: Raven Roberts rushes at O’Hara with a running boot! Leg caught by O’Hara under the arm, and countered into the DRAGON SCREW LEG WHIP!!! ROBERTS EVADES THAT WITH A CARTWHEEL EVASION, FREEING HER LEG, AND CLOCKS AN ONCOMING TLA ACROSS THE BRIDGE OF THE NOSE WITH ‘THE FACELIFT’!!!! BAM!!! STUNNING SPINNING HEEL KICK SHOT, FUCKING NAILED TLA!!! NOW SHE TURNS TO O’HARA, AND ATTEMPTS ANOTHER FACELIFT!!! Jamie ducks under that, sprints to the ropes, and Roberts is right on his tail! Just before O’Hara can rebound off the ropes, Roberts POUNCES on him with the guillotine choke, along with the body scissors applied! O’Hara damn sure didn’t see that coming! Roberts putting her all into it it looks like, really yanking back on that choke to put the lights out of our Team Captain if she can help it! O’Hara is attempting to batter punches into the body, which are ringing off, you can hear those blows loud and clear! Raven Roberts despite eating those gruesome shots, definitely doesn’t seem to be relenting just yet! O’Hara marches several paces forward, and MANAGES TO TRANSITION OUT OF THAT HOLD FROM ROBERTS WITH A NORTHERN LIGHTS SUPLEX BRIDGE!!!!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONEE!!!! TWWWWWWW-
Gavin Kirkland: O’HARA ROLLS THROUGH THE BRIDGE, AND IS GOING FOR A DEADLIFT MICHINOKU DRIVER!!! BUT HE BARELY GETS ROBERTS OFF THE GROUND, ROBERTS COUNTERS WITH A ROLLING BODY-SCISSORS TRANSITION, BRINGING JAMIE ROLLING FORWARD AND ONTO HIS BACK! Roberts quickly flips O’Hara onto his stomach and saddles over him with the body scissors followed by a flurry of right hands across the back of the skull! Jesus for a woman she sure as hell has no business being able to hit someone over the head so hard! Each of those rights just leaving sickening noises for each collision, and O’Hara despite it is trying to actually push himself up to a vertical base, bent over, with Roberts saddling him with a body scissors! She’s reaching forward, seemingly looking for a body scissors dragon sleeper, she really isn’t far off at all! She extends her arm as far forward as she possibly can, annnnddddd…
Deadprez: FINALLY, she has it locked in!
Gavin Kirkland: “Finally”?! What are you talking about? You know Prez I’ve been starting to side eye you as of late :mjpls: You’ve been making some questionable Freudian slips lately, I’m starting to question how down for the team you really are.
Deadprez: I am down for the team! :noah:
Gavin Kirkland: Prove it. :shaq:
Deadprez: HOLY HELL!!! TLA SPRINGBOARDS OFF THE ROPES, WHILE RAVEN ROBERTS HAS THE BODY-SCISSORS DRAGON SLEEPER APPLIED ON THE STANDING JAMIE O’HARA! AND TLA PLANTS ROBERTS WITH A SPRINGBOARD MOONSAULT INTO THE REVERSE DDT! JAMIE O’HARA SPIKED ONTO THE BACK OF HIS HEAD COURTESY OF ROBERTS AS WELL! Raven Roberts unintentionally ends up on the apron, and TLA crawls over to O’Hara to hook a leg after that hella dope two-for-one combo!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOONEEE!!! TWWWWWWWWWOOOO-
Gavin Kirkland: O’Hara with a kick out! Admittedly phenomenal timing and placement from TLA, while Roberts is recovering on the apron. TLA takes a slight glance at her, and reaches down to pull Jamie O’Hara up from the mat. O’Hara is definitely feeling the effects of the reverse DDT inadvertently delivered to him by Roberts, after Roberts herself was taken down by TLA. Now O’Hara attempts to counter out of TLA’s grasp with a hip toss! TLA not being moved, and instead he hammers down elbows into O’Hara’s collar bone! Particularly on the right side! ROLLING BACK LEFT ELBOW FROM O’HARA! Evaded by TLA! AND TLA SLAPS BACK WITH THE SWAG SHOT!!! STINGING BITCH SLAP ACROSS THE FACE OF THE ACE! OHHH BOY.
( Jamie O’Hara is turned away from TLA, and has a menacing look on his face. )
Deadprez: TLA calling him all types of “Puta madre” or whatever kind of rude shit he can think of in spanish. Adding insult to injury. And O’HARA CHARGES RIGHT BACK! UPPERCUT BY TLA! ANOTHER! ANOTHER! THIRD! FOURTH! Jamie sent stumbling back, and is doubled over near the ropes! TLA springs on and off Jamie O’Hara’s back to end up on the apron, and jogs towards Raven Roberts who’s recovering on the apron near the ringpost! HURRICANRANA OFF THE APRON BY TLA!!!! NO DICE!!! ROBERTS MANAGES TO CATCH HIM ON HER SHOULDERS, AND SENDS HIM POPPING UP AND LANDING RIBS FIRST AT THE VERY TOP OF THE METAL RING POST! ROUGH LANDING FOR TLA, BUT A SMART SAVE FOR ROBERTS! Roberts drops down to ringside shaking off some cobwebs, and BEFORE YOU KNOW IT JAMIE O’HARA DIVES THROUGH THE BOTTOM ROPES WITH A LOW-PE SUICIDA!!! ROBERTS CUTS HIM OFF WITH A MUAY THAI KICK ACROSS THE TEMPLE! LEAVING O’HARA DRAPED OUT OVER THE BOTTOM ROPE WITH MOST OF HIS TORSO HOVERING OVER RINGSIDE! O’Hara rolls over to his back, looking up at the lights while the top half of his body is protruding from the apron, and Roberts climbs up that same turnbuckle, next to the ringpost TLA is recovering on top of.
Gavin Kirkland: Roberts doesn’t take too long to reach the top, and once she’s there, she fires off with a series of clubbing crosses to the back and the upper neck area. TLA is seated on the top of the ringpost, high above ringside, and he’s actually trying to dangle his legs to drop on his feet below, but Roberts is holding him up from behind! AND ROBERTS HOOKS TLA’S HEAD UNDER HER ARM, HOISTING HIM UP WHILE HE’S FIGHTING! NOOOOOO WAYYYYYYY!!!
Deadprez: DRAGON SUPLEX FROM THE TOP ROPE, SENDING TLA CRASHING INTO JAMIE O’HARA ON THE APRON, AND BRINGING BOTH MEN TUMBLING DOWN AWKWARDLY TO THE RINGSIDE FLOOR!!!!! WHAT THEEE HEEEEEEEEELL!!!!
Crowd: HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT!
Gavin Kirkland: ONLY IN EAW! TLA JUST LANDED GUT FIRST, INTO JAMIE O’HARA’S STERNUM, AND THE BOTH OF THEM HAVE LANDED SPLAT AT RINGSIDE! Raven Roberts lays on the floor temporarily, before sitting up and admiring her handiwork behind her! Roberts understands well that the doors have pretty much been blown wide open for her to take control and maybe even bring the match to a close. Roberts goes after O’Hara, who you could argue took the brunt of that collision after having a human body sent smacking into his chest, with the full strength of another human being no less. O’Hara’s chest looks marked up, and Roberts takes him over to the steel steps, grabs him by the right arm and bashes his tricep right across the metal surface of the stairs! Roberts continues with multiple stomps into the midsection, before sending Jamie back into the ring by the nape of his neck.
Deadprez: TLA is on all fours recovering on the ramp, and Roberts follows him there, delivering brutal kicks straight to the face! TLA rolls away, and Roberts yanks him back up, with her sights set for the guard rails at the side of the ramp. TLA delivers a less impactful body shot, and Roberts responds with a crushing knee to the heart! And a headbutt, taking away TLA’s equilibrium. Roberts straightens him up and uses all of the strength within her, to toss TLA! Sending him CRASHING RIBS FIRST AGAINST THE RAMP SIDE METAL BARRIERS! TLA coughing up a storm down there, and a focused Raven Roberts quickly re-enters the ring to return her sights back to Jamie O’Hara.
Gavin Kirkland: O’Hara catches her this time successfully with a spin kick to the midsection! Roberts backpedals into the corner, and O’Hara loosens up some cobwebs in that right arm that just got slammed into the steel steps, before coming jogging after his opponent. BOOT TO THE FACE from Roberts! O’Hara stumbles away, and Roberts rushes him from behind! BEAK BREAKER!!!! TILT-A-WHIRL STUNNER!!!
Deadprez: O’HARA SUSPENDS ROBERTS’ WEIGHT UP BEFORE SHE CAN SUCCESSFULLY DROP THAT STUNNER, AND HE INSTEAD TOSSES HER INTO A STRADDLING POSITION OVER THE MIDDLE TURNBUCKLE! Now O’Hara loosens himself up just a little more while creating space, and he comes charging back at Roberts where she’s seated, and delivers a SLIDING GERMAN SUPLEX!!! ROLL THROUGH! INTO A DEADLIFT HIGH ANGLE GERMAN SUPLEX PIN!!!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO-
Gavin Kirkland: ROBERTS KICKS OUT! O’HARA MAINTAINS THE REAR WAISTLOCK, AND POWERS ROBERTS UP FROM THE CANVAS! STRAIGHT JACKET HOLD FROM BEHIND, STARDUST BREAKER TIME??? NOT SO FAST, ROBERTS COUNTERS WITH A KIMURA LOCK!!! GOD DAMN IT I HATE TO SAY IT BUT THAT WAS JUST A FANTASTIC TRANSITION! AND IT GETS EVEN MORE IMPRESSIVE, ROBERTS BARREL ROLLS HER BODY OVER ONTO JAMIE O’HARA’S BACK, GROUNDED STRAIGHT JACKET, FRONTWARD ROLL, AND RAVEN SNAPS IN THE AVIARY!!! CATTLE MUTILATION STYLE CROSSFACE CHICKENWING TO THE GROUNDED O’HARA! COME ON JAMIE, DON’T LET IT END NOW! YOU CAN’T ALLOW IT! PUSH THROUGH, WHATEVER IT TAKES! COME ONNNNNNN!!!!
( Jamie O’Hara reaches out his hand, mere seconds away from calling it quits. )
Deadprez: SPRINGBOARD FROG SPLASH FROM TLA, RIGHT INTO RAVEN’S MIDSECTION!
Gavin Kirkland: WHERE DID HE EVEN COME FROM?!
Deadprez: He got RIDICULOUS elevation on that, that looked like he fell out the blootclot sky! TLA dragging himself over to Roberts desperately, and he hooks a leg knowing good and well that he’s taken the wind out of her!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
Gavin Kirkland: Roberts kicks out! TLA turns his sights over to Jamie, who is doing his best to make his recovery. O’Hara and TLA and using each others bodies to climb up to their feet. And a stiff forearm to the face from TLA! Knife edge chop from O’Hara! Retaliatory right hand from TLA is blocked by O’Hara, and a stiff shoot kick from O’Hara precedes a thunderous forearm to the face! And a DIZZYING SPINNING BACKHAND! O’Hara standing over TLA who was brought down to a knee by that, making it clear that payback’s a bitch! O’Hara brings TLA back up by the head, and delivers a closed fist shot! TLA keeping his arms up, but he’s dazed! Another closed fist shot! TLA stumbling backwards, and another big time right, ducked by TLA, who stumbles backwards. O’Hara instinctively turns around! TALON!!!!! CLAYMORE KICK FLOORING O’HARA, AND TLA STUMBLES AND COLLAPSES THROUGH THE ROPES ON TO THE APRON! ROBERTS DRAGS O’HARA TO THE CENTER OF THE RING, AND DROPS RIGHT OVER HIS CHEST FOR THE COVER! REFEREE SLIDING TO THE FLOOR!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
Deadprez: BURNOUT!!!!!! TLA FROM THE TOP ROPE, WITH A CORKSCREW 360 SENTON!!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: ROBERTS EVADES IT! TLA ENDS UP CRASHING INTO JAMIE! AND ROBERTS USES THE OPPORTUNITY TO DUMP TLA OUT OF THE RING, SENDING HIM CRASHING DOWN TO RINGSIDE! Roberts jumps over O’Hara again!!!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
Deadprez: DEFIANT SHOULDER UP FROM THE ACE! EVEN AFTER TAKING ONE OF TLA’S BEST SHOTS, AND HER OWN! RAVEN ROBERTS SITS UP WITH HER MOUTH AGAPE –
Gavin Kirkland: KEEP THAT PRETTY MOUTH WIDE OPEN BABY! OPEN WIDE! REAL WIDE! YOU’RE IN THE RING WITH ONE OF THE GREATEST OF ALL TIME, YOU SHOULD KNOW BETTER BABY!
Deadprez: Roberts was caught up in the moment, but her change in expression is almost like one that says “why am I surprised?” She knows her opponents well, she knows the kind of heart it’s going to take to come away in the War Games, and she knows now is the time to seal the deal! Roberts hovers over O’Hara on one knee, and fires away with unprotected punches to the head! We have had to see a much more brutal version of Raven Roberts tonight, and War Games is going to REQUIRE that version of her if she hopes to bring a victory home for the gold brand —
Gavin Kirkland: JUST COME TO WORK IN A YELLOW SUIT NEXT WEEK DEADPREZ, MY GOD!!! WHERE’S THE LOYALTY?!
Deadprez: Just calling it like I see it breh! Roberts drags Jamie O’Hara’s limp body up to the ring ropes, tying up each of his arms using the ropes. Before slowly backing away….
Gavin Kirkland: NO NO NO NO NO NO NO! NOT THIS! ANYTHING BUT THIS! YOU’LL KILL HIM!
Deadprez: ROBERTS IS GOING TO DELIVER CONSECUTIVE ‘TALONS’, WITH O’HARA TIED UP IN THOSE ROPES! SHE’S CLEAR ACROSS THE RING, WATCHING JAMIE SLOWLY COME TO BEFORE SPRINTING FORWARD!!!! TALONS!!!!
Gavin KIrkland: BOX!!!!!!!!! OFFICE!!!!!!! SMASH!!!!!!!!!!! YYYYYYYYYYYYES!!!!
( Chris Elite takes Raven Roberts down from out of nowhere, sending the audience into a frenzy. Ahren Fournier slides into the ring as well, and the two of them are wearing #ClubShowdown merchandise. )
Deadprez: CHRIS ELITE! AHREN FOURNIER! THE REST OF TEAM SHOWDOWN IS HERE!
Gavin Kirkland: THANK GOD IN HEAVEN ABOVE! PRAISE THE LORD HALLOWED BY HIS NAME! THE GOATS ARE HERE! AND THEY AREN’T DONE! CHRIS ELITE DRILLS RAVEN ROBERTS WITH A GERMAN SUPLEX! ROLLS THROUGH, AND SCOOPS ROBERTS UP TO HIS SHOULDERS FOR THE ONE WINGED ANGEL POSITION! AHREN GEARING UP IN THE CORNER! WE’VE SEEN THIS BEFORE!
Deadprez: ELITE DROPS TO ONE KNEE WITH RAVEN ROBERTS SITTING ON HIS SHOULDERS! POWWWWW, PROTECT YA NECK!!!! CLOTHESLINE FROM HELL!!!!!!! ROBERTS DANGLING UPSIDE DOWN ON CHRIS’ SHOULDERS, AND CHRIS ELITE STANDS UP TO BOTH FEET BEFORE YANKING ROBERTS UP! LONG!!!!!!! KISS!!!!!!!!!!!! GOODNIGHT!!!!!!! ROBERTS DRILLED SKULL FIRST INTO THE CANVAS, MIGHT AS WELL BE THROUGH THE DAMN CANVAS IF YOU ASK ME! RAVEN ROBERTS IS COMPLETELY INCAPACITATED!
Gavin Kirkland: THE REFEREE MAY BE PISSED OFF, BUT WHO GIVES A DAMN WHAT THE REF THINKS! THE BVU CAME AT THE RIGHT PLACE AND THE RIGHT TIME!
( Chris Elite and Ahren Fournier free Jamie O’Hara from the ropes, and the irate official kicks Elite and Fournier out of the ring following their unwelcome interference. Jamie O’Hara, still very much dealing with his body being racked in pain, crawls on all fours until he can climb over Raven Roberts for the pin. )
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE-
Deadprez: AT 2 AND 7/8THS, TLA HOISTS JAMIE O’HARA OFF OF RAVEN ROBERTS, AND RIPS HIM CLOSER TO THE CENTER OF THE RING WHILE ROBERTS ROLLS OUT OF THE RING, CLEARLY FINISHED FOR THE EVENING. TLA LOOKING FOR THE MEXICAN DESTROYER!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: O’HARA FIGHTING IT, CLINGING TO TLA’S LEGS, REFUSING TO LET HIMSELF FALL PREY TO THAT DESTROYER! CHRIS ELITE AND AHREN FOURNIER CHEERING O’HARA OFF FROM RINGSIDE, AND NOW O’HARA COUNTERS WITH THE DOUBLE LEG SWEEP! O’Hara drags TLA near one of the turnbuckle corners! And sends him up and over with a SLINGSHOT!
Deadprez: TLA catches himself on the middle rope! And counters with a springboard armdrag! O’Hara hits the floor and rolls underneath the ropes, landing out of the ring! O’Hara looks winded, he’s taken a lot of punishment tonight, and the HITS KEEP ON COMING FROM TLA, WHO WIPES HIMSELF AND HIS OPPONENT OUT WITH A SUICIDE DIVE!!!! RIDICULOUS VELOCITY BEHIND THAT ONE, BOTH TLA AND JAMIE O’HARA COME CRASHING INTO THE BARRICADE!!!!
( Jamie O’Hara and TLA are laid out on top of one another for a brief moment, as we get some replay highlights from the double team attack Chris Elite and Ahren Fournier delivered on Raven Roberts, and the subsequent continuation of action between TLA and Jamie O’Hara. )
Gavin Kirkland: TLA brings Jamie O’Hara up from the floor eventually, and tosses him back into the ring before taking more of a breather for himself. A much needed breather at that, this has been one tumultuous battle and then some! Roberts is still all but motionless at ringside, being checked on by an official just to make sure she’s even alive. TLA re-enters the ring, and walks across over to the other apron, where O’Hara may have instinctively rolled to in order to create seperation. When you’re as experienced in competition as Jamie O’Hara is, surely stuff like that comes to you without even thinking. TLA steps out to the other apron now at the other side of the ring, and he pulls O’Hara up ….. AND YANKS HIM IN! MEXICAN DESTROYER!!!!!!! THIS TIME ON THE RING APRON!!!!!!! NO NO NO NO!!!! CHRIS! AHREN! HELP HIM! PLEASE!!!
Deadprez: O’HARA CLUTCHING TO THE ROPE WITH HIS LEFT HAND FOR DEAR LIFE, DOING ANYTHING IN HIS POWER TO STOP THIS! NOW O’HARA MANAGES TO SEND TLA UP AND OVER WITH A BACK BODY DROP! TLA LANDS ON HIS FEET BEHIND JAMIE! JAMIE QUICKLY RUSHES UP BEHIND HIM! STRAIGHT JACKET HOLD!!!! GOT HIM!!!!!!!! STARDUST BREAKER!!!!!!!! TLA NAILED WITH THE KNEE RIGHT TO THE SIDE OF HIS HEAD, AND HE UNCONSCIOUSLY COLLAPSES BACK INTO THE RING THROUGH THE ROPES! O’HARA HANGING ON ONE ROPE FOR DEAR LIFE, NEARLY FALLING OFF THE APRON DOWN TO RINGSIDE FOLLOWING THAT CLUTCH SHOT! O’HARA SLIDES HIMSELF BACK INTO THE RING, AND DESPERATELY LOOKS THE LEG! PRAYING FOR IT TO BE OVER!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!
( DING! DING! DING! )
( “Ultimate Battle” by ZENTA [EAW Edit] hits, and Jamie O’Hara sits up completely winded by this contest, before getting his arm raised by the referee. )
Gina Romano: Here is your winner…. JAAAAMMMMIEEEEEEEEEEEE OOOOOOOO’HHHAAAAAAARAAAAAAAAAA!!!
Gavin Kirkland: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: BRAVO! BRAVO! You sweet Aussie stud, you’ve done it again!
Deadprez: Through hell or high water, Jamie O’Hara defends the home turf in an outstanding triple threat showcase! The importance of this match was not lost on TLA, O’Hara or Raven Roberts, and it produced a hell of a performance from really all three of them. But before Gavin jumps down my throat about it, you damn right I’m proud of our brand for finishing strong in our own territory!
( Chris Elite, Ahren Fournier and Big Mike enter the ring applauding Jamie O’Hara for a job well done. Elite and Fournier take an exhausted O’Hara by the arm at both sides, and raise his hands, prompting a big ovation from the audience. )
Gavin Kirkland: We have run way over time thanks to this main event, but this is the scene I want, and I NEED to see take place in the War Games match! Team work made the dream work tonight, but there’ll be reinforcements for both Dynasty and Voltage come Territorial Invasion! We had better be on our fucking a-game, LIVES are at stake!!!
Deadprez: They are?
Gavin Kirkland: I may or may not have developed a gambling problem. :lupe: … FOR DEADPREZ, I’M GAVIN KIRKLAND, GOODNIGHT! FROM THE VERIZON CENTER!
( Team Showdown celebrates Jamie O’Hara’s victory before the sold out capacity audience until the closed caption appears on the screen and the camera fades to black. )
