(EAW Intro plays…)
(RECAP–Last week, Saturday Night Showdown took place from the Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The show starts off with Alex Myers coming to the ring and talking about the opportunity they have right now and this is their chance to right the wrongs they blame themselves for. That’s before Answers World Champion Jake Smith comes to the ring as he talks about how he feels about the match and says that he will be at ringside for Alex’s match later tonight. In the opening contest, Pandora Paisley defeats Lucas Johnson. After the match, Pandora talks about what Ms. Extreme has been doing and declares that no matter who you are, she is going to make her name off of you. The next match has Donovan Duke getting the submission victory over a game Drake Armstrong. )
(The recap plays on as Major Scotty Connor and Drake Armstrong find out what they have in their Unique Opportunity Briefcases. Scotty was the lucky recipient of the title opportunity while Drake had the unfortunate honor of becoming Kennedy Street’s servant for the next 30 days. The next match has Roberto De La Rosa defeating Lexi after Diego hit Lexi in the back of the head with brass knuckles. Then we have Mikaela Street interviewing Heidi Huxley about Kassidy Heart’s condition after Reasonable Doubt where she says that Kass will be on Showdown next week. We then see Hans Grayson defeating Harley Lewis in singles action.)
(The recap continues as Kennedy Street and Veena Adams are talking backstage before Jack Ripley interrupts and asks for another chance for some gold, but Kennedy pretty much tells Jack to go make his own opportunities because she wasn’t giving him one. The next match has Adam Lucas defeating Chris Elite by submission. After the match. Adam talks about how he really didn’t like the way he won the match knowing that Kass was attack beforehand before saying he is more than happy to help with the investigation. That leads to Impact coming out and talking down to Adam for what he just said before Adam issues a challenge for Grand Rampage. If Impact wins, he gets added to the Answers World Championship match at Pain for Pride. The main event of the night has Alex Myers defeating Amir Yusuf by disqualification after Pandora Paisley interfered. As they are attacking Alex, Ms. Extreme comes out and takes Pandora Paisley out of the equation. Jake Smith was on commentary before he hits the ring and causes Amir to escape. As he helps, Alex back to their feet, Jake takes them out with the Starmaker Cutter. The final shot shows Jake holding his title high as Alex is checked on by Willow, who jumped in the ring to help them, as the recap ends…)
(“Brick Wall” by A Day to Remember starts playing throughout the arena and the crowd immediately starts cheering wildly as they know that another exciting edition of Saturday Night Showdown. This week, Showdown is taking place from the amazing Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse in the city of Cleveland, Ohio! The camera scans across the raucous crowd who are holding all of their colorful, creative, and clever signs either supporting their favorites or making fun of the ones they hate. After about a minute of showing the crowd, their signs, and the merchandise they are wearing, the camera settles at the commentary table where Deadprez, Eve, and Gavin Kirkland are sitting and more than ready to call all of tonight’s Showdown action.)
Deadprez: WE ARE ON THE WAY TO THE GRAND RAMPAGE! Ladies and gentlemen, this is SATURDAY NIGHT SHOWDOWN! Tonight, Showdown is taking place from the Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse in Cleveland, Ohio. I am Deadprez and alongside Eve and Gavin Kirkland, we will be calling all of the amazing action that Showdown always brings. Are you two ready for tonight?
Eve: Absolutely! Of course tonight, we are going to be hearing many things that will involve the Grand Rampage. We will hear about the event throughout the night. Also tonight, we have Kassidy Heart in the arena. She is no doubt going to address many things including the attack she received at Reasonable Doubt. That will be tonight.
Gavin Kirkland: WOOOOOOOO! SHOWDOWN IS HERE ONCE AGAIN AND I AM EXCITED! We will also be hearing from Dominion. Ryan Joseph Myers and Xander Payne will be talking about what is next for them after their unsuccessful attempt at Operation: Doomsday to get the Unified Tag Titles.
Eve: We also have the debut of a new talk show here on Showdown. Ashlynn Quinn will be hosting the premier edition of “Boujee Bistro”. Her first guest tonight will be the National Elite Champion Veena Adams. Let’s see how that goes.
Deadprez: We have found out that the investigations to find out who Kassidy Heart’s attacker is will begin TONIGHT! We also heard that members of the Showdown roster will be interrogated. This is turning into a regular CSI episode. That will also be tonight.
Gavin Kirkland: IT’S MY FAVORITE TIME! IT’S TIME TO TALK ABOUT THE MATCHES! I LOVE IT!! Tonight we have Drake Armstrong taking on Hans Grayson. Two rising stars on Showdown going head to head. Who will come out on top? That will be tonight.
Eve: We also have the classic battle of Rookie versus Veteran as former Answers World Champion Jack Ripley takes on Major Scotty Connor. Will Jack get back on track or will the Major continue to build up momentum towards his title match?
Gavin Kirkland: We also have Lexi taking on Jon Kelton in singles action. Both competitors are coming off recent defeats and both are looking to get back on track with a win here tonight.
Eve: We also have a huge match on tap. Ms. Extreme is back in action as she takes on Holly Arrow. Where Camille is, you better believe that Pandora Paisley is going to not be far behind. Who knows what will happen in that match!
Deadprez: Those are all great matches indeed, but tonight’s main event is going to be explosive to say the least. Six-man tag team action on tap. One team has the Answers World Champion Jake Smith teaming with former Answers World Champion Impact and former Interwire Champion Amir Yusuf. The opposing team has the King of Elite Adam Lucas teaming with former National Elite Champion Donovan Duke and Number One Contender Alex Myers. We will also have Pandora Paisley and Willow Achara both at ringside. With all these elements, which team will come out with momentum heading to Grand Rampage. We will find out later tonight. Right now, let’s head to the ring where the lovely Gina Romano is ready to kick things off for Saturday Night Showdown!
(Partition by Beyonce plays throughout the arena as the crowd stands on their feet.)
Gina Romano: PLEASE INTRODUCE AT THIS TIME…. KASSIDY HEART!
(There is a lot of cheers and boos mixed into the reaction for the guts she showed at Reasonable Doubt and also the return to save her friend and partner, in Sienna Jade at Operation: Doomsday much to everyone’s surprise. She slowly walks out in black spanks, open toed see-through heels, and a white tight blouse. She is obviously still hurt after what happened with the attack and then the match and result with Adam Lucas. She slowly makes her way to the ring.)
Deadprez: We open up Showdown with none other than Kassidy Heart. The former Answers World Champion had a scary time a few weeks ago at Reasonable Doubt when someone attacked her, and it seemed like it was going to be a hospital stay at the hospital. She is still not medically cleared but Kassidy asked for this moment, tonight.
Eve: She should how tough this woman is, Adam Lucas didn’t know how to put her down but, in the end, the referee stopped the match to save Kassidy from herself. It will be interesting what she has to say about the attack and what we saw for Dynasty.
Gavin Kirkland: She still has a bandage on part of her head from the brick and who knows what else happened. It was a very scary situation to say the least.
(Kassidy gets in the ring, taking the mic from Gina Romano before she steps out and Kassidy paces a little before taking a deep breath, addressing the crowd.)
Kassidy Heart: I am a woman that never takes anything lying down. I also know that for the last few years I have had a target on my back because of how good I am. Now some of you might disagree but I don’t care. Longest reigning Answers World Champion, the ONLY woman to ever win King of Elite. I have been successful in the Elimination Chamber, any match that I have been put against, walking out the winner. When I challenged Adam Lucas, it was for the sole purpose to remind him who runs this show, who is the Apex Predator here, that is ME. But… at Reasonable Doubt, someone or someone’s decided to take me out while of all things were putting my wrestling boots on.
(Some of the crowd boo, the disgust in Kassidy’s face says it all as she takes a deep breath, still circling the ring becoming more agitated every passing second.)
Kassidy Heart: I felt a strike to the back of my head, falling forward I could barely grasp what had happened, then whoever the perpetrator was stomped my head into the rubble of the brick and the next thing I remember is waking up on a stretcher in an ambulance as it was ready too drive off. I had one boot on, one boot off, half my wrestling gear was covered in blood, no idea what had happened but…. I WOULD BE DAMNED IF I DIDN’T WRESTLE ADAM LUCAS!
(This actually gets a huge pop from the crowd as Kassidy is seething at this point, her blue eyes glaring right into the camera.)
Kassidy Heart: I know what Adam did after the match, I watched the replay, since I was basically unconscious, but I NEVER gave up, I wrestled that match like it was my last and I’m not going to say “Thank you” to Adam for being a compassionate bleeding heart because truth be told, I wouldn’t have done the same in return. Love me, hate me, I don’t care but you will damn well respect who I am in this business! That goes for anyone in the back and in this company, period! So, Adam… congratulations, I know that is not the way you wanted to win and that was not the way I ever expected to lose, but you finally got one over on Kassidy Heart and I know that isn’t good enough for you, so when this is all over, and it is taken care of, I know damn well that you will accept my challenge and do this again.
(The crowd erupts in cheers at the thought of another Adam Lucas and Kassidy Heart match. She though is far from done, as her temperament grows.)
Kassidy Heart: But now that this is out of the way, let me talk directly to the person or persons that attacked me at Reasonable Doubt. I don’t know why or how you were able to get the drop on me, but I am going to promise this. Whether it is now, tomorrow, next week, next month, next year, I don’t care! I’m going to find you, I will do everything in my power to find who did this to me and trust when I say that the Jaded Hearts is not going to deter or distract me from my ultimate goals in the EAW and especially the Showdown brand because I have one goal, to be a World Champion again. And if I have to go through every single member of this roster to do it, then I will. If I must search forever on who got the drop on me then I will…. Hell, if I have to go through the ENTIRE EAW in order to do so, then I WILL!
(She calms herself for a moment before turning to the camera, glaring right at it, raising the microphone to her lips.)
Kassidy Heart: And with that said, the ONLY way I’m going to accomplish this? Is by competing in one match I have never been a part of. So, I am throwing my name in the GRAND RAMPAGE!
(Kassidy throws the mic on the mats as Partition starts to play throughout the arena. She gets a huge ovation while mixed in with some boos as Kassidy just continues to stare at the camera.)
Deadprez: Wait… wait dawg…. Did she just throw herself into the Grand Rampage!?
Eve: She sure did, and this is the first time that Kassidy Heart has ever competed in the Grand Rampage, she is determined to become a World Champion again and to find the perpetrator that attacked her! She is on a mission and who is going to stop her!
Gavin Kirkland: I am in complete shock right now; this is how we open Showdown!? What is next! Kassidy Heart is in the Grand Rampage! :wow:
(Kassidy continues to stand there glaring at the camera as the scene fades to a commercial break)
( Saturday Night Showdown returns from a short commercial break as we see Gina Romano standing in the middle of the ring, preparing herself to announce the upcoming match. )
Gina Romano: THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SCHDULED FOR!…
Crowd: ONE FALL!
( ‘The Leaving Song Pt. II’ hits as Hans Grayson walks out and basks in the cheers from the crowd. He walks out with a confident smile on his face, nodding in approval for the crowd’s reaction before making his way towards the ring. )
Gina Romano: INTRODUCING FIRST!…. FROM VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA!… WEIGHING IN 216 POUNDS!…. ‘FIRE HEART’ !!!!!… HANSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!…. GRAYSONNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Eve: Here comes one of the rising stars all around EAW, Hans Grayson! He has been wandering Showdown for a while now, and he’s been beating a ton of opponents lately. He managed to beat Harley Lewis, but tonight, he’s going to take down another obstacle in front of him, such as Drake Armstrong.
( Hans enters the ring as he takes his entrance jacket off before ‘Pride and Arrogance’ by Takeru Kanazaki plays. Drake Armstrong makes his way down to the ring. He doesn’t seem to be happy because of what he received. Drake looks quite serious tonight and keeps his eyes on Hans while making his way down from the stage to enter the ring. )
Gina Romano: FROM SCARSDALE, NEW YORK!…. WEIGHING IN AT 260 POUNDS…… HE IS ‘THE FUTURE’ !…. DRAKEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!… ARMSTRONGGGGGGGGGGG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: LOOK, IT’S KENNIE’S LAPDOG!
Eve: Well, it’s quite unfortunate that Drake didn’t get the title shot and ended up being Kennie’s dog for thirty days. Maybe Drake could do something tonight to show that it doesn’t matter that he’s the dog, but he will make sure that he’s still capable enough to take out anybody who is going to block his path.
( DING DING DING! )
Gavin Kirkland: Drake and Hans waste no time with each other as both men meet in the middle of the ring and crash into each other, causing them to break apart. They quickly get back on their feet and Drake looks to throw a punch at Hans, but Hans ducks underneath, jumps up from behind, AND QUICKLY SPIKES DRAKE WITH A POISONRANA!
Eve: Hans wastes no time and takes Drake down with a huge blow right off the bat. He goes down to Drake and starts slowing him down with repeated right knee strikes to his gut, inflicting more and more damage. Hans makes sure that Drake isn’t going anywhere soon as he continues to rain down the punishing blows!
Deadprez: Drake is in serious trouble, but Hans wastes no time picking him up off the mat and getting him back to his feet. He tosses Drake onto the ropes and waits for his next move. Drake quickly jumps over the ropes and runs forward to the opposite side, sneaking up behind Hans. Hans turns around just as Drake MEETS HIM WITH A HIGH KNEE TO THE GUT! HANS STUMBLES TO HIS KNEES AND DRAKE CAPITALIZES ON THE OPPORTUNITY, KNOCKING HIM DOWN COMPLETELY WITH ANOTHER HIGH KNEE TO THE JAW!
Gavin Kirkland: Hans is down on the ground, holding his jaw and trying to get back to his feet, while Drake holds his gut and enjoys a moment of advantage. Drake steps in, picks up Hans, and locks him up with a front facelock. Drake quickly changes the game, going for a headlock takedown that sends Hans into a seated position with Drake in control!
Eve: Hans quickly reaches his right hand down to the bottom rope and doesn’t sit well with Drake. Drake wastes no time picking Hans up to a kneeling position and then STOMPS directly onto his right hand!
Deadprez: Drake goes for a left hand this time and picks him up, quickly hitting a Vertical Suplex and sending Hans crashing down to the ground!
Gavin Kirkland: Hans uses his right knee to pound at the top of Drake’s head, causing him to lose his balance and release his hold on Hans. Hans manages to land on both feet and attempts to push Drake forward, but his injured hand hinders him from doing much! He couldn’t do much to Drake!
( Drake turns back around and starts mocking him. )
Drake Armstrong: (Off-Mic) What’s wrong, hm? I don’t think EAW wants a weak elitist like this.
( SLAP! )
Drake Armstrong: (Off-Mic) THEY. DON’T. WANT. YOU-
Eve: A JUMPING KNEE STRIKE BY HANS GRAYSON KNOCKING DRAKE’S TEETH IN! Drake talks too much and Hans isn’t pleased with hearing it. Hans steps in as soon as possible and begins using his elbow, instead of his injured hand, to hit Drake repeatedly and tries to stun him!
Gavin Kirkland: Hans’ elbows are proving to be very effective as he continues to strike Drake with them relentlessly. He shows no signs of stopping anytime soon as he keeps hitting Drake with more and more elbows. Drake starts to fade and ends up dropping down to a kneeling position!
Deadprez: Hans looks down to Drake for one last time and makes his way down to the ropes… BOUNCES OFF AND LOOKS FOR A HANDSPRING ROUNDHOUSE KICK BUT DRAKE USES THE LAST SECOND WHERE HIS BOTH FEET TOUCHING THE RING’S GROUND TAKING HIM DOWN WITH A CHOP BLOCK!
Eve: Drake makes a smart move by taking out Hans’ calf with a chop block, but he still seems hurt and exhausted from the barrage of elbow shots from Hans. Hans holds onto his injured calf in pain, but he knows he needs to find a way to get back on both feet soon or risk losing the match.
Gavin Kirkland: Drake picks himself back up and walks towards Hans, who is still holding onto his injured calf while the referee checks on him. However, Drake pushes the referee aside and starts stomping on Hans’ calf repeatedly, showing no mercy. Drake seems to have lost all sense of sportsmanship and I hate it!
Deadprez: Drake grabs onto Hans’ injured calf and slams it down to the ground, causing Hans to scream out in agony and further worsening his condition. Drake seems to take pleasure in Hans’ pain, wearing a devilish smile on his face while the referee attempts to intervene and check on Hans.
( Drake leans against the corner and watches Hans struggle to recover from the injury inflicted on his calf. The crowd is audibly booing Drake, showing their disdain towards him, which only seems to make him even more satisfied. Drake takes pleasure in the negativity directed towards him and revels in the attention he is receiving from the crowd. )
Gavin Kirkland: God If I were in the ring right now, I would beat that man right off the bat. I would attempt to knock his teeth down his throat and show everyone the Gavin Kirkland that I am capable of being towards someone I hate so much!
Deadprez: Oh, the one with an actual girl that loves him? Nice!
Gavin Kirkland: https://tenor.com/view/clown-crying-sad-gif-17901663
Eve: Hans starts to recover back to his feet and Drake steps in to pick him up. Hans tries to fight back by punching at Drake before Drake stops him by driving his right knee into his gut, causing Hans to fall back. Drake turns Hans and looks for a German Suplex!
Deadprez: Hans uses his right elbow and smacks into the side of Drake’s head, causing him to release Hans and step back, creating some distance between them. Hans then goes behind Drake, grabs him, and looks for a Saito Suplex instead!
Gavin Kirkland: DRAKE FLIPS OUT AND LANDS ON BOTH FEET BEHIND HANS! Hans notices and tries to come back to his feet as soon as possible, but Drake takes him down with both legs and grabs his left one, attempting to twist it around in an Ankle Lock!
Eve: Hans uses his free leg to kick Drake away from him. Drake tries to resist, but the kicks are too much to handle, causing him to release Hans and step away. Hans quickly rolls back to his feet, and as Drake tries to throw a punch to catch him mid-run, Hans slides underneath his fist and pops back up, pushing Drake towards the ropes…. ‘FIRE PUNCH’ TO DRAKE! A SUPERMAN PUNCH CONNECTS!
Deadprez: NOT TOO SOON! DRAKE DUCKS UNNDER JUST IN TIME, HOOKING BOTH OF HANS’ ARMS AND GOING FOR A ROLL-UP INSTEAD!
Eve: DRAKE KICKS OUT! The match continues between these two men and they don’t waste any time with each other. Both men get back to their feet and go for a clothesline with the same idea! Both men crash into each other with a huge clothesline, but Drake comes back faster, looking to hit a mule kick this time at Hans!
Deadprez: Hans catches his leg, pulling him in and SPINNING MICHINOKU DRIVER II BY HANS TAKING OUT DRAKE! Hans is just about to go for a pinfall attempt, but Drake rolls away from him and ends up on the outside of the ring. Hans tries to reach him, but it’s too late; Drake is already on the outside of the ring.
Gavin Kirkland: Hans starts looking at the referee and he seems to be quite disappointed but well you can’t blame the referee, he’s the one going out himself. Hans shakes his head before starts rolling down to the outside to get Drake back into the ring. Hans picks Drake off the ground then throwing him back into the ring.
Eve: Hans slides back into the ring, and Drake tries to help himself back to his feet. Drake starts grabbing Hans’ legs, and Hans just looks down, watching him closely to see what Drake is trying to do here. Drake looks very hurt and in a lot of pain right now, and Hans is just standing there, watching him suffer.
Gavin Kirkland: LET HIM COOK, YEAH!
Deadprez: DRAKE WITH ANOTHER CHOP BLOCK TAKING HANS DOWN TO ONE KNEE! DRAKE TRICKS OUT HANS AND NOW…. COMING BACK TO HIS FEET WITH A MULE KICK THIS TIME! HANS IS DOWN!
Eve: Hans gets fooled by Drake, which makes Drake gain an upper hand in the situation. Now, Drake is going to use most of it to make his move in this match because Hans is now down on the ground, and it’s his good chance to do something about it. Drake pops back to his feet, and now he’s quickly picking Hans off the mat while Hans is still hurt from the chop block…. A SLEEPER SUPLEX DRIVES HANS TO THE GROUND!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: Hans looks absolutely terrible right now, but I’m sure he still has a chance to fight back anytime soon! Hans always has a plan for himself, and I know he’s going to come back from this. From now on, we have to watch Drake bullying this man because he seems like he’s coming for more of that. Drake keeps Hans in the hold of a Sleeper Suplex…. HITS HANS WITH ANOTHER ONE!
Deadprez: Hans is absolutely out, but this man doesn’t seem to be satisfied yet. Drake is still holding Hans down and making sure that this man is going to suffer more and more. Drake picks him off the mat once again, and this time, turns things around, putting Hans into A COMPLETE REAR NAKED CHOKE!
Eve: Hans is in deep, serious trouble here, and Drake isn’t done just yet. DRAKE IS NOW GETTING HANS DOWN INTO A SEATED POSITION, USING BOTH LEGS TO WRAP HANS AROUND HIS WAIST, AND NOW HANS IS COMPLETELY LOCKED UP BY THE REAR NAKED CHOKE! HANS IS GOING TO RUN OUT OF BREATH SOON, OR SOONER HERE! HE LOOKS ABSOLUTELY HELPLESS AND TRIES TO TAKE DRAKE’S ARMS OUT, BUT HE DOESN’T HAVE ENOUGH POWER TO DO SO!
Gavin Kirkland: THE CROWD IS CHEERING FOR HANS TO FIGHT BACK, AND IT SEEMS LIKE HE’S GOING TO GET SOME ENERGY OFF THE CROWD. DRAKE DOESN’T WANT IT TO FLOW THAT WAY AND KEEPS HIM LOCKED UP TIGHTLY, MAKING THIS A MUCH WORSE PREDICAMENT FOR HANS GRAYSON!
Deadprez: THE CROWD ENERGY ISN’T GOING TO WORK FOR HANS THERE! HE STARTS FADING! THIS IS VERY DANGEROUS FOR HANS BECAUSE HE’S ABOUT TO LOSE TO DRAKE! DRAKE KEEPS CHOKING HIM AND MAKING SURE THAT THINGS ARE GOING TO HAVE THEIR END RIGHT HERE! DRAKE IS LOOKING TO FINALLY SCORE HIS FIRST VICTORY SINCE REASONABLE DOUBT!
Eve: ….Hans is going to be choked out by Drake, and the referee starts checking on him! It’s going to be over here!… THE REFEREE CALLS FOR A BE-
( …. )
Gavin Kirkland: NO WAIT! HANS GRABS THE REFEREE’S HAND AND SHAKES HIS HEAD! HE’S STILL ALIVE! HANS STILL GOT IT! Drake is very angry and he is putting even more pressure into the move while still holding Hans in his grip! He is not giving up on the fight and is determined to ensure that this victory is his!
Deadprez: Hans starts coming back to his feet with Drake still locking up his neck with a rear naked choke! He starts carrying Drake with him on his feet. The power being shown by Hans right now is magnificent!
Eve: Hans runs backward and crashes Drake into the corner, releasing him! It works, Drake’s spine connects with the corner and causes him to let go of Hans. Hans walks away from Drake and starts leaning against the opposite corner to catch some breaths…..
Gavin Kirkland: Drake uses this moment to run out of the corner while Hans is taking a break. He takes advantage of the situation and looks to send Hans right back down to the ground with a lariat at the corner!
Eve: HANS POPS OUT OF THE CORNER AND BARELY HITS DRAKE WITH ‘FIRE PUNCH’ !!!!!!! A SUPERMAN PUNCH CONNECTS ON DRAKE!!!! DRAKE IS OUT AND HANS IMMEDIATLY DROPS INTO A PINFALL!
Gavin Kirkland: DRAKE WITH HIS SHOULDER OFF THE MAT AT THE LAST SECOND!
Deadprez: Hans barely takes down Drake with luck, and now Drake is still out from a devastating punch from Hans. Hans is having his moment right here, and maybe it’s time to end it all for him. He looks around, and the crowd is ready to see this. He starts holding down his neck and going over the ropes…. Drake starts coming back to his feet and still dazing from the punch…. ‘BURNING SHOT LARIAT’ !!!!!!!!! BUCKSHOT LARIAT CUTS DRAKE’S HEAD OFF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: DRAKE DUCKS UNDER THE ARM AND GOES BEHIND HANS… ‘NATURAL TALENT’ !!!!!!!!!!! A BRIDGING HALF-NELSON HALF-CHICKENWING SUPLEX TAKES OUT HANS!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Eve: DRAKE TAKES OUT HANS THIS TIME AND NOW HE STARTS HOOKING HANS’ LEG FOR A COVER! HANS IS IN TROUBLE RIGHT HERE, AND DRAKE MIGHT BE THE ONE TO MAKE IT! DRAKE MIGHT ACTUALLY WIN THIS!
Deadprez: HANS KICKS OUT! HANS KICKS OUT JUST IN TIME! HE IS STILL UP FOR THE MATCH! IT’S STILL GOING! DRAKE CAN’T BELIEVE IT, AND NOW HIS ANGER IS BECOMING MUCH BIGGER THAN EVER! HE IS VERY OUTRAGED RIGHT NOW THAT HANS STILL MANAGED TO KICK OUT! DRAKE DIDN’T EVEN EXPECT IT TO COME!
Drake Armstrong: (Off-Mic) WHY?! WHY?! WHY?! WHY?!
Gavin Kirkland: DO BETTER!
Eve: Drake isn’t very pleased with what just happened right there, but he doesn’t seem to give up anytime soon. He manages to take Hans down at least, but now he’s going to finish it off right here! Hans starts collecting himself and coming back to his feet, with Drake backing himself into the corner and waiting for the right moment to strike.
Drake Armstrong: (Off-Mic) GET THE (CENSORED) UP, YOU PIECE OF GARBAGE!
Gavin Kirkland: Don’t turn around Hans!… NO!!!!!!! DRAKE SPRINTS OUT OF THE CORNER AND ‘HALBERD FROM HELL’ BY DRAKE-
Deadprez: HANS WITH A JUMPING KNEE STOPS DRAKE JUST IN TIME!… AND NOW, A SAITO SUPLEX TAKES OUT DRAKE ARMSTRONG!
Eve: OH LOOK, DRAKE IS NOT OUT! DRAKE COMES BACK TO HIS FEET IMMEDIATELY WITH A BURST OF ENERGY! HE YELLS OUT LOUD AT HANS AND NOW RUNS AT FULL SPEED TO TAKE HIM OUT COMPLETELY!
Deadprez: ‘FIRE PUNCH’ !!!!!!!!!!! A SUPERMAN PUNCH FOR THE SECOND TIME, TAKING DRAKE OUT COMPLETELY!!!!!!!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: Hans looks around and falls back down to the corner. Drake is completely out right there and he doesn’t seem to move at all! The crowd is going off their seats and ready to witness this together! Hans makes his way all the way down to the apron while Drake is still down on the ground. He isn’t moving at all, and this might be a good chance for Hans to finish it off!
Eve: …. 450!!!!!!!!!!!! A SPRINGBOARD 450 SPLASH! ‘GRAYSON SPLASH’ HITS! HE DOES IT! DRAKE SHOULD BE DONE AND DUSTED RIGHT THERE! HANS IS GOING FOR A COVER!
( DING DING DING! )
Gina Romano: HERE IS YOUR WINNER!…. HANS GRAYSON!
Gavin Kirkland: HANS WITH ANOTHER WIN WIN WIN WIN! WINNER WINNER CHICKEN DINNER!
Deadprez: Please don’t say that, you sound like eight years old.
Gavin Kirkland: :comeagain:
Eve: HANS WITH ANOTHER VICTORY IN HIS HANDS! Hans manages to beat Drake in a great match here tonight between these two. All of this is still going to be preparation for his next match in the future. Who knows? He might be the one to join Grand Rampage! Let’s see what’s going to happen next between these two!
( ‘The Leaving Song Pt. II’ by AFI starts playing as Hans celebrates his victory over Drake, who gets carried out to the back with a bunch of referees. The final shot displays Hans with a huge smile on his face for another win to his record, and the scene fades to elsewhere. )
( Transitioning elsewhere, this episode of Saturday Night Showdown live from the Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse hums along with a backstage interview. Kyra Phillips, radiant as ever, is present on the screen. She wears a dazzling dress, the same colour as her pearly-white smile! Joining her at this time are none other than the duo of Ryan Joseph Wilson and Xander Payne— otherwise known as Dominion! Neither man is in competition tonight, so they’re dressed casually. Their appearance receives a mixed response from the attending Ohio faithful. The cameras zoom in a touch, without further ado Kyra brings the microphone up to her face. )
Kyra Phillips: Ryan, Xander, I really appreciate your time. I wanted to ask you about the intense match between yourselves and Soul Food Sunday that took place at Operation: Doomsday. Obviously, before last weekend the two of you were undefeated in tag team action. Approaching Operation: Doomsday, we heard the two of you express confidence in your skills, as well as your chances of leaving Chicago with the Unified Tag Team Championships. So I have to ask, given you ended up losing on the night, how are Dominion feeling in relation to the match?
Ryan Joseph Wilson: It’s a disappointing feeling, Kyra. We expressed confidence as you said and in that moment, we were confident. The two of us felt our skills and our synergy worked wonders together, and that in Chicago we’d have a good chance of winning the Unified Tag Team Championships. For what it’s worth, we came so close. We competed with the measuring stick, the top of the mountain, we went toe-to-toe with Soul Food Sunday and I mean this when I say it, on another night we would’ve walked out as champions. That’s taking nothing away from SOSA and Visual Prophet, they did what they needed to do and they showcased why they’re considered the best. I still think Dominion is better, even if the record books won’t show that.
Xander Payne: If we faced Soul Food Sunday again we’d run away with it. I genuinely feel we did the best we could do in Chicago, but we also learned so much from that experience. I’m sure that SOSA and Visual Prophet could say the same, that’s the nature of the beast. We put in a good shift for ourselves and showed why Dominion is a force to be reckoned with. Next time out we’ll do better. Keep this in mind, Kyra, we’re still growing as a team. While we did have an amazing performance at Operation: Doomsday, as we continue to bond and work together, we and our performances will only get better. But it’s in the past, right? Anybody would be saying what we’re saying, we know now the Unified Tag Team Championships are on the shelf so that means we need to do something here, on Showdown, so we don’t become stagnant.
Ryan Joseph Wilson: What’s important to establish is that Dominion is not a short-term thing. You’ll see people team-up all of the time, and after their first hurdle they call it quits. Even successful tag teams do this— The Prescription and The Haircare Kings come to mind, the latter competed against one another just two weeks ago in the main event of a premium event. When things get tough, they break apart and more often than not, usually end up fighting one another. If progress and success were a straight line, nothing would separate the worst and the best in this sport. Dominion is not going anywhere, we’re going to learn from our mistakes and bounce back, becoming stronger than we were before in the process.
Xander Payne: Soon the opportunity will present itself for Dominion to make its mark. If not in the tag team division then here, on Showdown. People should be worried, they’d be right to feel that way. Think about it, Kyra, by ourselves Ryan and I have accomplished so much. But together? We really have limitless potential. One thing about this business is that you can never write people off. Legends come back from year-long hiatus’ and win championships. The so-called best on the planet enter month-long slumps and never return to their peak. But this business always provides, and when an opportunity comes we’ll be there to strike. So everyone on Showdown should sleep with one eye open. Because we will make our mark.
( Listening to Dominion’s vague words, the audience is left in a confused state. Kyra herself is a little unsure of what to make of this. It’d seem that Ryan and Xander are potentially done with their Unified Tag Team Championships endeavors, but in spite of this, are more-than willing to continue working together. The professional interviewer decides to follow her gut instinct and enquire more pertaining to Dominion’s plans in the coming weeks. )
Kyra Phillips: Would you care to be a little more specific? Expand upon your plans? What do the two of you foresee happening for Dominion in the near future?
Xander Payne: Come on now, Kyra! Where would be the fun in that? You don’t buy a book and then skip to the endgame, do you? That’d be silly. Trust in Dominion, we have some surprises up our sleeve and when we’re done, the wrestling world won’t be able to stop talking about us. We’re going to make an impact, I know people will be quick to write us off. But given what we’ve accomplished that’d be silly to do so.
Ryan Joseph Wilson: What Xander says is the truth, Kyra, it’s gospel. You, as well as the rest of the Showdown roster, will just have to sit patiently, wait and see what we’re going to do. But rest assured, it’ll be big. We didn’t align to watch the world pass us by, now. We have big plans and it’s a matter of waiting, sitting in darkness, watching this business provide— and then striking while the iron is hot. The future of Dominion will be successful, we weren’t able to get things done when competing against Soul Food Sunday. But that was an anomaly, not the norm. Rest assured things will change. We’ll stop at nothing, we’ll get back up and we’ll do whatever we can in our power to ensure this partnership is memorable and a success.
( Satisfied with their answers, Dominion nods in Kyra’s direction and then walks off to the right. The camera pans to follow them, returning to the interviewer some time later. Kyra Phillips signs off and with this, we transition elsewhere. What’s clear is that Dominion aren’t demotivated with their loss at Operation: Doomsday, it is merely the beginning of a beautiful friendship! )
(The camera returns to the ring where Gina Romano is standing with a microphone ready to start the announcements for the next match.)
Gina Romano: Ladies and gentlemen, this next contest has a TWENTY MINUTE TIME LIMIT and is scheduled for… ONE FALL!
Crowd: ONE FALL!
(“Blue World” by Mac Miller starts playing and the sounds of resounding boos echo as Jack Ripley enters the arena. He really doesn’t care what the crowd thinks of him as he heads straight to the ring.)
Gina Romano: Introducing first and making his way to the ring. He is from Las Vegas, Nevada! Weighing in at 205 pounds. Here is “STRAIGHT SHOOTER” JACK RIPLEY!
Deadprez: Here comes Jack Ripley heading to the ring for singles action. He hasn’t had the best of luck in the last few weeks, but he is looking to change that around tonight with a victory.
Eve: At Reasonable Doubt, Jack was defeated by Ms. Extreme in a No Holds Barred match and just last week, Jack was looking for another opportunity from GM Kennedy Street, but she was hearing NONE of it.
Gavin Kirkland: If Jack is wanting another opportunity for Kennedy, he’s going to have to earn it and tonight could go a long way to getting him in line for an opportunity, but his opponent is here to make sure that Jack doesn’t get the job done.
(Jack enters the ring with a scowl on his face as he takes his corner and his entrance music fades off. Seconds later, “Sweet Emotion” by Aerosmith starts to play as Major Scotty Connor enters the arena to loud cheers from the crowd. Scotty soaks in the warm welcome as he heads to the ring.)
Gina Romano: Introducing his opponent! He is from London, Ohio. Weighing in at 210 pounds. Here is MAJOR MICHAEL SCOTT CONNOR! USMC!
Gavin Kirkland: Here comes the opposition. Scotty is on the opposite end of the spectrum that Jack is. Scotty got his first major victory at Reasonable Doubt, getting one of the briefcases.
Eve: On top of that, Scotty was the lucky recipient of the briefcase that entitles him to a title opportunity of Kennedy Street’s choosing. He has got to be feeling good with receiving his first title opportunity of his career.
Deadprez: He’s also on a mission to clean up the filth and garbage of Showdown and defeating a former World Champion in Jack Ripley would go a long way in furthering his cause. But Jack isn’t going to let anybody further a cause at his expense. Who will come out victorious tonight? The veteran experience of Ripley or the true military power of Connor? We are about to find out!
(Scotty enters the ring and takes his corner as his entrance music fades off. These two aren’t taking their eyes off each other as the referee checks both competitors before calling for the bell.)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Deadprez: Here we go! This contest is underway! Veteran versus Rookie right now with Jack Ripley taking on Scotty Connor. Both men meet in the center of the ring before they lockup. Scotty with a little more power gets the early advantage with a side headlock.
Gavin Kirkland: Even though Scotty has the early goings, outside of experience, these two are pretty much even in terms of size and strength. It will be interesting to see how this match goes.
Eve: The experience of Jack already paying dividends as he throws right hands into Scotty’s gut and gets him to let the headlock go. Jack shoves him forward and grabs him by the back of the head AND YANKS HIM DOWN TO THE MAT!
Gavin Kirkland: Jack takes advantage and is delivering boots after boots to Scotty and Scotty rolls out to the apron for a quick breather. I think he got taken a little off guard with Jack.
Deadprez: He’s staying out on the apron for a quick second to come up with a change of strategy. BUT JACK ISN’T GOING TO WAIT! HE GRABS THE BACK OF SCOTTY’S HEAD TO TRY TO BRING HIM BACK INTO THE RING THE HARD WAY–
Gavin Kirkland: SCOTTY WITH A RIGHT HAND STAGGERS RIPLEY! Scotty gets back into the ring and grabs Jack around the waist AND BRINGS HIM DOWN TO THE MAT! Scotty needs to keep up with that technical wrestling to counteract Ripley high flying moves.
Eve: Scotty grabs Jack’s head and has a chinlock applied AND FLIPS FORWARD WITH A BRIDGE AND ADDS EXTRA PRESSURE TO THE MOVE! Scotty keeps the pressure applied for a little bit longer before flipping back and letting the hold go.
Deadprez: The technical expertise on display from Scotty as he brings Jack back to his feet and whips him to the ropes. Jack comes back and COUNTERS WITH A HEADSCISSOR TAKEOVER THAT TAKES SCOTTY FOR THE RIDE!
Eve: Scotty comes back and goes for a clothesline, BUT HE HIS MET WITH A CHOP TO THE CHEST FROM RIPLEY! YOU COULD HEAR THAT ONE LOUD AND CLEAR! Ripley whips Scotty into the turnbuckle and he quickly follows.
Deadprez: RIPLEY WITH ANOTHER CHOP TO SCOTTY’S CHEST! ANOTHER AND ANOTHER LIGHTING UP SCOTTY’S CHEST AND IT’S ALREADY STARTING TO TURN RED FROM ALL THOSE CHOPS!
Gavin Kirkland: Ripley with those martial arts style kicks into Scotty’s midsection before Jack comes back and JUMPS ONTO SCOTTY’S LEGS AND TAKES HIM OVER WITH A MONKEY FLIP! YOU DON’T SEE THAT MOVE VERY OFTEN!
Eve: Scotty’s back takes some damage as Jack follows up WITH A STRAIGHT KICK TO THE SPINE! SCOTTY FELT ALL OF THAT ONE! Jack hits the ropes again AND CATCHES SCOTTY UNDER THE CHIN WITH A LOWBALL CLOTHESLINE! Scotty taken down and Jack goes for a quick cover!
Gavin Kirkland: THE MAJOR KICKS OUT AT ONE! But Jack is still on the attack as he brings Scotty back up and whips him to the ropes. Scotty comes back and Jack puts his head down BEFORE SCOTTY JUST CLOBBERS HIM IN THE BACK!
Deadprez: Scotty now with a front facelock and he SNAPS JACK OVER WITH A SNAP SUPLEX! SCOTTY FLOATS OVER AND STARTS THROWING FOREARMS IN JACK’S FACE! JACK TRYING TO BLOCK AS MANY SHOTS AS HE CAN AS HE BACKS UP TO THE ROPES!
Gavin Kirkland: Jack gets to the ropes and the referee forces a break. Scotty is back up to his feet AND HE GRABS JACK’S LEGS AND YANKS HIM AWAY FROM THE ROPES AND SENDS JACK CRASHING BACK TO THE MAT!
Eve: Jack planted on his spine as Scotty hits the ropes AND DROPS THE LEG ACROSS JACK’S CHEST! DIRECT IMPACT AS SCOTTY GOES FOR THE COVER!
Deadprez: RIPLEY KICKS OUT AT ONE! Scotty keeps on the attack and he has a hammerlock applied. Scotty keeps Jack grounded for the time being and Jack doesn’t like that one bit. Jack is trying to find a way to get free.
Eve: HE FOUND A WAY! Jack reaches back and grabs Scotty’s head and COUNTERS WITH A JAWBREAKER THAT GETS HIM FREE AND STAGGERS SCOTTY BACK! Jack is back up to his feet and he throws a forearm in Scotty’s face.
Deadprez: Scotty staggered back and Jack fires off a few more forearms that sends Scotty leaning into the ropes. Jack pulls Scotty off the ropes and whips him to the other. This time Scotty comes back AND JACK TAKES HIM DOWN WITH A BIG TIME BACK BODY DROP!
Gavin Kirkland: Scotty is holding his lower back in pain as Jack comes in and grabs Scotty’s head and TRIES TO PLANT HIM WITH A DDT, BUT SCOTTY IS BLOCKING IT! JACK TRIES AGAIN, BUT SCOTTY BLOCKS AGAIN!
Eve: JACK TRIES A THIRD TIME, BUT SCOTTY LIFTS HIM UP THIS TIME AND COUNTERS WITH A BEAUTIFUL NORTHERN LIKES SUPLEX! JACK IS DOWN AND SCOTTY BRIDGES UP! SHOULDERS ARE DOWN FOR THE COVER!
Gavin Kirkland: JACK KICKS OUT AT TWO! I don’t think Jack expected this from Scotty as he gets back to his feet. Scotty’s telling Jack to bring it on and Jack comes in at full speed, BUT SCOTTY DROPS DOWN AND CATCHES JACK WITH A DROP TOE HOLD!
Deadprez: JACK GOES THROAT FIRST INTO THE MIDDLE ROPE AND SCOTTY FOLLOWS UP WITH A KNEE ACROSS THE BACK OF THE NECK! NICE MOVE BY SCOTTY!
Gavin Kirkland: He knows that he’s going to have to stay on the attack against Jack Ripley because Jack knows the tricks of a veteran. Jack can turn the tides of this match in his favor at any second.
Eve: Scotty slides under the bottom rope and gets in Jack’s face AND FIRES A STRAIGHT RIGHT HAND IN JACK’S FACE AND HE FLIES BACKWARDS AS SCOTTY GETS BACK INTO THE RING AND STARTS KICKING JACK IN THE BACK!
Deadprez: Jack trying to roll into the ropes and he finally gets to the ropes. The referee forces a break, BUT SCOTTY SIDESTEPS THE REFEREE! Scotty heading straight for Jack–
Eve: JACK GRABS THE FRONT OF SCOTTY’S TIGHTS AND SENDS HIM FACE FIRST INTO THE TOP ROPE! SCOTTY BOUNCES HARD TO THE MAT! Just like that, Jack Ripley turns the match into his favor.
Deadprez: Jack has a handful of hair and drags Scotty back to the ropes AND JACK STARTS CHOKING SCOTTY ON THE SECOND ROPES! THE REFEREE IS ADMONISHING JACK TO GET SCOTTY OFF THE ROPES, BUT JACK ISN’T LISTENING!
Referee: (off-mic) Get him off the ropes, Jack. BREAK IT NOW! ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FI–
Gavin Kirkland: Jack breaks right before the five count so he doesn’t risk disqualification. But that doesn’t stop Jack from dragging Scotty back AND DOING IT ALL OVER AGAIN! THE REFEREE ONCE AGAIN ADMONISHES JACK!
Referee: (off-mic) COME ON JACK! BREAK IT! BREAK IT NOW! ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FI-!
Eve: Jack breaks the choke on four once again. Now Jack grabs the middle rope AND SNAPS IT BACK AND THAT WHIPS SCOTTY BACK AND CRACKING THE BACK OF HIS HEAD AGAINST THE MAT!
Gavin Kirkland: Jack is making two statements in this match. One for Scotty to show that someone he considers “a rookie”. The other is for Kennedy Street to show our General Manager that he is deserving of another opportunity.
Deadprez: Jake leans down and gets right in Scotty’s face before he reaches down AND JUST SLAPS SCOTTY RIGHT ACROSS THE FACE! HOW DISRESPECTFUL! But Jack doesn’t care. Jack gets back up AND BUTS HIS BOOT ACROSS SCOTTY’S THROAT!
Gavin Kirkland: JACK RIPLEY IS CHOKING SCOTTY ONCE AGAIN AND THE REFEREE IS GETTING ANNOYED WITH JACK AT THE MOMENT!
Referee: (off-mic) Get your boot off his throat! STOP THE CHOKING NOW! ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FIV–
Eve: Jack once again stops the choke on four. Right now the referee is letting Jack now that he is getting dangerously close to getting disqualified. I think that threat from the referee went through one ear and out the other.
Deadprez: Jack pulls Scotty back to his feet and doubles him over before applying a facelock AND SNAPPING SCOTTY OVER WITH THE SUPLEX! JACK FLOATS OVER AND STARTS THROWING LEFTS AND RIGHTS IN SCOTTY’S FACE!
Eve: No count started because Scotty just SHOVES Jack off him and he starts trying to get back to his feet. BUT HERE COMES JACK! HE JUMPS IN FOR ANOTHER ATTACK BUT SCOTTY CATCHES HIM!
Deadprez: SCOTTY IS BACK UP TO HIS FEET AS HE BACKS UP TO THE ROPES! SCOTTY JUST DROPS AND JACK GETS A HOT SHOT INTO THE TOP ROPE! JACK GOES THROAT FIRST INTO THAT TOP ROPE!
Gavin Kirkland: Jack stumbles back and gets caught in a facelock of his own. Scotty lifts him up and bounces Jack off the top rope BEFORE TAKING JACK DOWN WITH A SLINGSHOT SUPLEX!
Eve: The Major showing his technical skills in this match as he takes down a former Answers World Champion and right now has him on the ropes. Now he pulls Jack up enough AND APPLIED A FULL NELSON!
Gavin Kirkland: That’s something we haven’t seen from the Major. I don’t think that Scotty is looking to make Jack submit right now, but it certainly is an interesting way to wear down Jack Ripley.
Deadprez: Jack is still on his knees and trying to get himself back to his feet in the hopes of getting free from this full nelson. As soon as I say it, Jack gets back up to his feet AND HE JUMPS UP BEFORE FORCING HIMSELF FORWARD!
Gavin Kirkland: ROLLUP! THAT’S AN INTERESTING WAY TO COUNTER A FULL NELSON! MODIFIED VICTORY ROLL BY JACK RIPLEY AND THE MAJOR’S SHOULDERS ARE DOWN!
Eve: SCOTTY GETS THE SHOULDER UP AND IS FORCED TO RELEASE THE HOLD! Both men scramble to get back to their feet AND THEY BOTH MEET HEAD ON FOR CLOTHESLINE AND THEY BOTH CONNECT UNDER THE CHIN!
Deadprez: Both men are down at the moment, but they are slowly getting back to their feet so the referee is not going to start a count. Now they are both back up to their feet and Jack is first up with a forearm–
Eve: SCOTTY BLOCKS IT AND COUNTERS WITH A FOREARM OF HIS OWN! Jack tries again, BUT SCOTTY COUNTERS ONCE AGAIN WITH ANOTHER FOREARM! Jack backed up against the ropes and SCOTTY CLOTHESLINE JACK OVER THE TOP ROPE!
Deadprez: BUT HE HANGS ONTO THE TOP ROPE AND STAYS ON THE APRON. Scotty goes for another clothesline, BUT JACK DUCKS IT! Jack is back up AND HE CATCHES SCOTTY IN THE SIDE OF THE HEAD WITH A KICK!
Gavin Kirkland: Scotty dazed for a moment as Jack climbs up to the top rope as Scotty stumbles over to the corner. JACK JUMPS, BUT SCOTTY CAUGHT HIM! JACK IN THE BEAR HUG POSITION, BUT HE IS FIGHTING IT!
Eve: Jack fights it off enough that he slides off Scotty’s back AND TAKES HIM DOWN FOR A SUNSET FLIP, BUT SCOTTY IS KEEPING HIS BALANCE!
Gavin Kirkland: Not fully because Scotty is wavering! Scotty is close to falling AND HE FINALLY DOES! SCOTTY’S SHOULDERS ARE DOWN FOR THE SUNSET FLIP–
Deadprez: SCOTTY ROLLS THROUGH AND GETS BACK TO HIS FEET AND GOES FOR A DROPKICK, BUT JACK MOVES OUT OF THE WAY AND SCOTTY CRASHES AGAINST THE MAT!
Gavin Kirkland: Jack grabs Scotty’s legs and drags him towards the corner BEFORE FALLING BACK AND SLINGSHOTS SCOTTY TO THE CORNER AND SCOTTY CRASHES AGAINST THE TURNBUCKLES!
Eve: Scotty stumbles back and JACK ROLLS HIM UP WITH A SCHOOLBOY, BUT SCOTTY ROLLS THROUGH! Scotty gets back to his feet and ducks the Jack clothesline!
Deadprez: Scotty grabs a waistlock and hoists Jack in the air AND PLANTS HIM WITH A GERMAN SUPLEX! JACK’S HEAD CRASHES ON THE MAT AS SCOTTY BRIDGES UP FOR THE COVER!
Eve: JACK KICKS OUT AT TWO! You have to believe that Jack isn’t exactly happy about Major Scotty being able to get a two count on him. Scotty pulls Jack back up to his feet, BUT JACK WAS PLAYING POSSUM!
Deadprez: JACK GRABS SCOTTY AROUND THE WAIST AND PLANTS HIM WITH A BELLY TO BELLY SUPLEX! SCOTTY COMPLETELY CAUGHT OFF GUARD WITH THAT MOVE AS HE CRAWLS BACK TO HIS FEET!
Gavin Kirkland: Scotty comes running in AND JACK TAKES HIM DOWN WITH AN ARM DRAG! Scotty is back up and tries again BUT JACK CATCHES HIM WITH ANOTHER ARM DRAG! JACK IS WRENCHING ON SCOTTY’S ARM
Eve: Jack has a torque on Scotty’s arm as Jack is just torturing Scotty at the moment. Scotty is slowly getting back to his feet AND HE SWEEPS JACK’S FEET OUT FROM UNDER HIM AND JACK HITS THE MAT AND SCOTTY GETS FREE!
Gavin Kirkland: JACK WITH A KIP UP AND HE IS BACK TO HIS FEET! SCOTTY COMES AROUND AND JACK FIRES OFF A ROUNDHOUSE KICK THAT CATCHES SCOTTY IN THE BACK OF THE HEAD AND SCOTTY GOES DOWN!
Deadprez: Jack is waiting for Scotty to get into position as he gears up for a move that will hopefully put Scotty away. Scotty makes it to his knees AND HERE COMES JACK RIPLEY–
Gavin Kirkland: DAYLIGHT SLAYING TIME! JACK HIT THAT MOVE BEAUTIFULLY AND HIS KNEE WAS DRIVEN RIGHT INTO THE SIDE OF SCOTTY’S HEAD AND SCOTTY DROPS DOWN! SCOTTY ISN’T MOVING AS JACK ROLLS HIM INTO THE COVER!
Deadprez: SCOTTY GETS THE SHOULDER UP RIGHT BEFORE THREE! Give it up to Scotty for kicking out of that move but that isn’t going to stop Jack from beating the crap out of him to win the match.
Gavin Kirkland: Scotty hasn’t moved since he kicked out, so Jack grabs Scotty and drags him over to the corner and Jack decides to climb up to the top rope!
Eve: Jack heading up to the high rent district to hit another one of his high impact moves from his arsenal. Jack is on the top turnbuckle AS HE DECIDES TO JUMP! RIPLEY LOOKING FOR THE MOONSAULT–
Gavin Kirkland: KNEES UP! SCOTTY GOT THE KNEES UP AND RIPLEY CRASHES AND BURNS HARD! Jack is holding his stomach and ribs in pain after that miscue as Scotty slowly makes it back to his feet.
Deadprez: Scotty is locked on Jack as he pulls Jack up to his feet. Scotty locks both arms in the butterfly position. Scotty lets out a ‘SEMPER FI” BEFORE JUMPING UP AND PLANTING JACK WITH THE DOUBLE ARMED DDT!
Gavin Kirkland: SCOTTY CALLS THAT DDT “TAPS”! JACK WAS SPIKED RIGHT ON THE TOP OF HIS HEAD AND RIPLEY MIGHT BE KNOCKED OUT COLD AFTER THAT DDT! SCOTTY ROLLS JACK OVER AND HOOKS THE LEG! WILL SCOTTY PICK UP A HUGE VICTORY HERE?
Eve: OH THAT WAS SO CLOSE! SCOTTY WAS ON THE VERGE OF A HUGE VICTORY, BUT JACK BARELY GOT THE SHOULDER UP! WHAT A NEAR FALL BY THE MAJOR! The Major needs to go back to the drawing board if he wants to put Jack away.
Gavin Kirkland: He needs to stay on Jack and that’s exactly what he is going to do right now. Scotty now grabs the legs and head before driving his knees into Jack’s back. Scotty pulls back AND HE HAS “WELCOME TO BOOTCAMP” APPLIED! BOW AND ARROW HOLD BY THE MAJOR–
Eve: NOT FOR LONG! JACK BACKFLIPS FREE AND LANDS ON HIS FEET! SCOTTY IS STILL ON THE GROUND AND JACK JUST KICKS HIM RIGHT IN THE HEAD! SIMPLE, YET EFFECTIVE MOVE BY THE STRAIGHT SHOOTER!
Gavin Kirkland: Scotty is down, but Jack brings him right back up. Jack kicks him in the gut and pulls him backwards BEFORE JACK PLANTS HIM ON THE MAT WITH AN INVERTED DDT! SCOTTY DOWN AGAIN AS HE GETS DRUG OVER TO THE CORNER AGAIN!
Deadprez: Jack is back up to the top rope and he is going to give it another try AS HE JUMPS FROM THE TOP ONCE AGAIN AND THIS TIME IT WORKS AS JACK HITS THE KNEES TO THE FACE! WHAT A SHOT AS JACK GOES FOR THE COVER!
Gavin Kirkland: SCOTTY KICKS OUT AT TWO AND JACK IS QUICKLY BACK UP TO HIS FEET! NOW HE’S CALLING FOR SCOTTY TO GET BACK UP TO HIS FEET! JACK WANTS TO END THIS NOW!
Eve: SCOTTY IS BACK UP AND JACK WENT FOR THE DOUBLE KNEE BACKBREAKER, BUT SCOTTY HOLDS ONTO THE ROPES AND HITS THE CANVAS BEFORE HE QUICKLY SPRINGS BACK TO HIS FEET!
Gavin Kirkland: JACK WENT FOR A SAVATE KICK, BUT SCOTTY DUCKS IT AND GETS BEHIND JACK AND ROLLS HIM UP! SCHOOLBOY ROLLUP BY THE MAJOR! SHOULDERS ARE DOWN! WILL SCOTTY STEAL IT HERE!
Deadprez: JACK KICKS OUT AT TWO AND HE ALMOST GOT CAUGHT AS BOTH MEN ARE BACK TO THEIR FEET! SCOTTY TRIES TO FIRE OFF A CLOTHESLINE, BUT JACK DUCKS THE SHOT BEFORE QUICKLY GETTING SCOTTY ON HIS SHOULDER BEFORE RUNNING TOWARDS THE CORNER–
Eve: SCOTTY LAUNCHED OFF JACK SHOULDER AND THE LAWN DART SENDS SCOTTY FACE FIRST INTO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE! SCOTTY COMES TUMBLING OUT OF THE CORNER AND JACK GETS HOLD OF SCOTTY AND TURNS HIM AROUND!
Deadprez: JACK HAS HIS HEAD DOWN AND HE MUSCLES UP SCOTTY FOR THE RIPPLE EFFECT VERTEBREAKER, BUT SCOTTY IS TRYING TO KICK FREE AND GET MOMENTUM IN HIS FAVOR AND HE DOES! SCOTTY LANDS BEHIND JACK BEFORE JACK TURNS AROUND–
Eve: KICK TO THE GUT BY SCOTTY AND HE HOOKS BOTH OF JACK’S ARMS! SCOTTY LOOKING FOR ANOTHER TAPS DDT! SCOTTY JUMPS AND JACK LEANS BACK TO COUNTER LIKE A NORTHERN LIGHTS SUPLEX, BUT SCOTTY LANDS ON HIS FEET! SCOTTY TURNS AROUND–
Deadprez: RIGHT INTO YOU’LL FLOAT TOO BY JACK RIPLEY! THAT SUPERKICK CAUGHT SCOTTY RIGHT ON THE JAW! NO CHANCE TO BLOCK THAT SHOT AND SCOTTY’S LIGHTS HAVE TO GOT TO BE TURNED OUT AS JACK FALLS INTO THE COVER AND HOOKS THE LEG!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“Blue World” starts playing again as Jack starts to roll off of Scotty and the crowd immediately starts booing.)
Gina Romano: Here is your winner! JACK RIPLEY!
Deadprez: This was a great match between rookie and veteran. Both competitors fought hard, but it was the wrestling experience advantage of Jack Ripley that gave him the victory here tonight.
Eve: I know that people were probably expecting a one sided match between these two, but it’s easy to see that it wasn’t because both Jack and Scotty fought hard in this contest and provided a great match that the fans enjoyed.
(Jack is back to his feet and the referee raises his arm in victory before Jack snatches his arm away and glares at the referee before giving a disgusted look to the still down Scotty as leaves the ring and heads up the entrance ramp.)
Gavin Kirkland: As we mentioned earlier, he wants to get another opportunity and maybe this victory will be the restart he needs to help him convince Kennedy Street that he deserves one.
Eve: We also can discount the great work Scotty did. He is constantly proving that age is just a number. He was close to having the match won on a number of occasions, but unfortunately, it just wasn’t meant to be for the Major here tonight.
Gavin Kirkland: Even with the military background and power that Scotty brought, it just wasn’t enough this time around to defeat the cunning and skill of Jack Ripley. But Scotty shouldn’t feel too bad. He fought hard and remember that he still has a title opportunity coming his way, so he needs to keep focused on that future match.
Deadprez: There’s no doubt that with the work that Scotty has been putting in recently, he will be getting more opportunities like this in the future, but tonight belongs to the Straight Shooter. Congrats to Jack Ripley on the victory here tonight on Showdown!
(The final shot shows Jack giving one last quick glance down the entrance ramp before heading to the back as Scotty is sitting in the ring looking a little disappointed about the match result as the camera cuts elsewhere.)
(We cut to the back, where Kennedy Street stood talking to Roberto De La Rosa, La Familia with him. By her side is Drake Armstrong who looks a little worse for wear after his match with Hans Grayson, who stands patiently, waiting to be called upon. He seems almost in awe of her, and is obviously happy with his current duties, seeing it as an opportunity to get ahead in the company.)
Kennedy Street: I get what you are saying Honey, I really do.
Roberto De La Rosa: With respect, and I’m sure that you understand I do respect the job you are doing here…
Kennedy Street: That I do Honey
Roberto De La Rosa: I defeated Lexi with very little issue last week. I’m sure that you saw for yourself that I didn’t even have to bring my biggest of effort and got past her quite easily.
Kennedy Street: It was certainly an impressive victory.
Roberto De La Rosa: It was more than impressive; it was the kind of dominance that you asked for. You asked, and I delivered, that is what Roberto, and The Familia does. Not only that, I wasn’t the one who was pinned at Reasonable Doubt.
Kennedy Street: Again, I cannot deny that, but…
Roberto De La Rosa: Then surely, it stands to reason that I have earned myself another shot at the National Elite Championship?
(This time Kennedy doesn’t respond, and actually shows some annoyance at the interruption. Roberto doesn’t pick up on it though and continues.)
Roberto De La Rosa: I like to think you and I have an accord Ms. Street, let me do what is right for you and this company, and I promise you that unlike others, I will NOT let you down.
(Kennedy stands there for a few moments thinking about it. Unlike Abel Atami, Roberto had been at the very least, useful, and could be useful in the future. As Kennedy was a giving soul, and loved to give back to her roster, she comes up with a plan)
Kennedy Street: Why aim so low Honey, when you could look much higher than that? If there is one thing that upsets Kennie, it’s when my roster doesn’t try to reach beyond their potential.
Roberto De La Rosa: I’m listening
Kennedy Street: Well, it’s simple, isn’t it? You go to Grand Rampage, and you do what Impact did last year, and win the whole thing. You do that, and you get yourself a shot at being World Champion which is much better wouldn’t you agree? Please Roberto, don’t sell yourself short, Kennie has had her eye on you for a long time, and this could be the beginning of something special. Just imagine, doing what Impact did, and Showdown taking the honors for the second year in a row.
(Roberto thinks about it for a second, his ego going into overdrive. He believed that he could win Grand Rampage in a heartbeat, and then the sky would be the limit.)
Roberto De La Rosa: Yeah OK Ms. Street, I can do that. For you, and the Showdown brand, but mostly for myself.
(As he is speaking, Jack Ripley walks into the office, Kennedy immediately rolling her eyes and letting out a long sigh.)
Kennedy Street: Roberto… we’ll speak more later OK Honey. I just have to deal with this.
(Roberto nods and leaves with La Familia, happy with his opportunity. Jack doesn’t stand during the ceremony, and the minute Roberto has left, he speaks.)
Jack Ripley: I’m not happy.
Kennedy Street: I think Kennie has figured that out Honey.
Jack Ripley: I’m serious… you totally ignored me last week, and I want answers.
Kennedy Street: I was already talking with Veena; you were very rude and tried to interrupt.
Jack Ripley: What can I do when you won’t listen to a word I say.
Kennedy Street: Well maybe that’s because you don’t have anything interesting to say…Honey.
(Jack is furious but maintains his composure. He couldn’t believe that he was being treated like this. And as far as he was concerned, it had to stop.)
Jack Ripley: I have made it perfectly clear that I want to be World Champion again, and I will stop at nothing to achieve that.
Kennedy Street: That’s good, but there are many Elitists after the same thing.
Jack Ripley: Yes, but you and I know that I am much more capable than all of them. I deserve to be World Champion again, and main event Pain for Pride. My last run was disappointing, it was way too short. People are saying that I’ve had my time, but the fact is this is only the beginning of my rise to the top.
Kennedy Street: Well, length isn’t everything Honey
(The comment goes over Jack’s head, him being so focused on what he wants.)
Jack Ripley: So, what are you going to do about it? You’re the boss, allow me to achieve my goals.
(Kennedy stretches out her neck, holding it with her hand.)
Kennedy Street: Drake, Honey… he is really stressing me out, massage my shoulders, will you? Make Kennie better while I think
(Drake immediately does as he is told, and places his hands on her shoulders, looking far more aroused than he really should.)
Kennedy Street: That is nice Honey… keep doing that, right there.
(Jack’s eyes widened, like he had just walked into a porno movie.)
Kennedy Street: OK Jack, here’s what Kennie is going to do for you.
(Jack is all ears, ignoring the performance occurring in front of him.)
Kennedy Street: It’s simple, you are in the Grand Rampage.
(Jack just stares at her, almost nonplussed, and expecting more.)
Kennedy Street: Win… and you main event Pain for Pride.
(Jack stands there for a moment but doesn’t say a word. He then turns, and walks out, a smirk forming on Kennedy’s face.)
Kennedy Street: Yes, that’s right Honey, right there. Harder Honey… Harder.
(The camera focuses on Drake’s face, loving life, before it then cuts away to ringside.)
( ‘Heart-Shaped Box’ by Nirvana fills the arena, eliciting a mixed reaction from the crowd. Jon Kelton confidently makes his way to the ring, followed by his wife, warming up his hands and keeping his focus fixed on the ring. )
Gina Romano: The following contest is scheduled for ONE FALL!!
Crowd: ONE FALL!!
Gina Romano: With a twenty minute time limit! INTRODUCING FIRST! Accompanied to the ring by Londyn Zelaya. From Toronto, Ontario Canada! Weighing in at 204 pounds. He is The Chosen One: JONNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN KELTONNNNNNNNNNNN!!!!!!!!!!
Deadprez: Jon is on a mission to prove to the World that he will one day become a World Champion! He was part of the match to determine the next challenger to face Jake Smith and he got taken out by Donovan Duke but not without giving one hell of a fight.
Gavin Kirkland: In Kelton’s mind there is no way he deserves to be the top guy on Showdown and tonight I feel is a win he needs to get in order to stay in the fight to be next in line to face Jake. Lexi won’t be an easy task for sure, let’s see if Jon can get it done against an emerging star!
( “Mr. Brightside” by The Killers plays over the speakers of the place while the rebellious one makes her way to the ring with a look of confidence and she appears to be in a bad mood. )
Gina Romano: AAAAAAAND HIS OPPONENT!! From Detroit, Michigan! Weighing in at 117 pounds. She is The Motor City Machine Gun: LEXIIIIIII!!!
Deadprez: Here comes a proud competition looking to bounce back from a loss against La Familia last week. Lexi got screwed out of a win as Roberto was assisted by Diego and Javier and Lexi will be looking to get a win against an emerging Jon Kelton tonight.
Gavin Kirkland: A win against one such as Jon would do great for Lexi’s reputation and standing in the company. She spoke her mind this week and she’s determined to leave Cleveland with a much earned victory but to do won’t be an easy feat.
( Ding! Ding! Ding! )
Deadprez: AND HERE WE GO! This match is officially underway! Both opponents are staring at one another, both looking confident in their abilities to leave the match with the win and Kelton stays in his corner not looking to be in rush to be in this fight while Lexi hops on her feet looking antsy and very much ready to get it on.
Gavin Kirkland: Some words exchanged between husband and wife Londyn Zelaya at ringside and the official asks him to get this match started. The fans are booing him too as he points making a hold on sign. The balls on that man!
Eve: These two are trying to send a message to Lexi I think, that they aren’t going to do things at her pace. Kelton stretches a bit and then does a little jog around the ring before attempting a clinch on Lexi WHO TAKES HIM TO THE MAT INSTEAD WITH A JAPANESE ARMDRAG!
Deadprez: Kelton seems surprised as he gets up vertical quickly, he charges at her and she steps aside. To the ropes Kelton goes and Lexi hops over him. Kelton to the ropes, Lexi backflips anticipating Jon but he held onto the ropes but he then dashes her way!
Gavin Kirkland: She hits the deck, he goes over her and once more into the ropes. Lexi to the floor again and Kelton cartwheels himself past her! She goes to her feet AND GETS CLIPPED WITH A DROPKICK FROM KELTON!
Eve: First strike goes to The Chosen One tonight! Lexi’s holding her jaw and Kelton looks at his wife as if Lexi was nothing. He moves to her, to her feet goes Lexi before getting whipped into a corner. Jon goes to strike BUT LEXI BLOCKS AND SPINS KELTON IN THE CORNER! Knife edged chop to the chest!
Deadprez: And a third smack connects!
Deadprez: Kelton reverses and goes for strikes of his own but the crowd boos his effort to turn the table to his side. He strikes at her three times before moving away from the corner and whip her to the op-No she reverses! Kelton now to the corner AND LEXI SLAMS INTO HIM WITH JUMPING KNEES!!!
Gavin Kirkland: Lexi quickly tries to gain momentum as she moves to whip him again but Kelton reverses! She uses the ropes to hop over her opponent and rolls to the center of the ring. She dares him to come at her! He does and she backflips herself over him AND CLIPS HIM WITH A DROPKICK OF HER OWN!!
Eve: Lexi with a kip-up and raises her arms, the crowd loves it as she moves to Jon and kicks him in the ribs. He gets up, moving his arms to the ropes before smacking his chest again! Into the ropes he’s sent and he ducks under her clothesline! He turns and shoulder tackles her!
Deadprez: Opportunity for Kelton who goes for an Enziguri taking down Lexi! He quickly forces her up, scoops her in his arms and slams her down to perfection. Textbook move by Kelton who then quickly goes to the ropes before attempting a back senton but Lexi got her feet to his back preventing the move!
Gavin Kirkland: She shoves him to a corner, getting up fast and charging his way but it stopped by a boot to the midsection keeping her away. She stumbles away from Jon but he grabs her into a headlock! He walks to the ropes going springboard but he lands on his feet! Strange move there BUT LEXI THEN SWINGS HIM AGAINST THE TURNBUCKLES WITH A SUDDEN SNAP SUPLEX!!
Eve: Smart play by Lexi who quickly drags Jon closer to the ring and tries for a cover!
Eve: And Kelton with the shoulder up! This match will continue but Lexi sends a message with the first pin of the bout! Kelton looks a bit phased, meanwhile Lordyn is trying to get him to focus while Lexi plays with the crowd who reacts to her positively.
Deadprez: She takes to the ropes quickly trying to go for a bronco buster but Kelton moves out of the way, she had it figured out as she slips between the ropes and lands to the outside on her feet only to quickly get back inside the ring BUT KELTON DROPS AN ELBOW TO HER SPINE BEFORE SLAMMING HER HEAD TO THE MAT A FEW TIMES!!
Gavin Kirkland: Kelton is taking command of this match right now with this as he then picks up before whipping her to the ropes AND BRINGS HER DOWN WITH A MODIFIED SIDEWALK SLAM!! He then quickly picks her up, hoisting her to his shoulders from a corner AND START TO RUN INTO A POWERSLAM!!! He hooks the legs! This one could be over!!
Gavin Kirkland: Lexi with the kick out!! This match will continue!
Eve: Kelton got close with those last two moves but Lexi denied him and shows her resilience along with her desire to win. She’ll need to put some offense in however if she wants to have chance at victory against Kelton tonight.
Deadprez: Kelton seems to be waiting for Lexi to get to her feet before striking her with his next offensive attack which comes in the form of a springboard clothesline just when she gets to her feet! Lexi to her back she goes back vertical fairly quickly before she gets whipped into a corner. Kelton rushes to the opposite one before charging in WITH A CORNER METEORA!!
Eve: He strikes at her with fists followed then by some kicks she’s getting stomped pretty viciously and the crowd disapproved by booing en masse! He doesn’t care at all as he moves her to the center of the ring AND GOES FOR A SITOUT BRAINBUSTER!! DOWN LEXI GOES AND THAT ONE WILL HURT!!
Deadprez: Outside of the ring Lordyn seems pleased by the display of power her man is putting on inside the ring and he ain’t done as he grabs Lexi again AND SETS HER UP TO FOR THE CANADIAN DESTROYER AND SLIPS HER DOWN HARD!! COVER BY KELTON!!
Deadprez: Lexi lifts the shoulder up!!!
Gavin Kirkland: She’s got heart I’ll grant her that but what she needs is to get out of the situation she’s in now or she’ll end up losing the match rather quickly! He move Lexi to her feet, throws some elbows to her face, she’s staggering in the center of the ring! He goes to the ropes, bounces and rolls INTO A CUTT-NO!! LEXI TURNED IT INTO A NECKBREAKER!!! COULD SHE BE TURNING THE TIDES JUST NOW???
Eve: She’s striking at Jon now throwing fists left and right before going to the ropes she’s looking for a sh-KELTON JUST STRUCK HER IN THE GUT AND TOOK HER DOWN WITH A TWIST OF FATE!!! AND HE QUICKLY SPINS HER TO HER STOMACH AND GOES FOR A CROSSFACE!!! HE’S TRYING TO END IT RIGHT HERE WITH A SUBMISSION MANOEUVER AND LEXI’S STRUGGLING!!!
Deadprez: SHE’S FLAILING HER ARMS AROUND TRYING TO FEND OFF THE PAIN AND TRIES TO GET CLOSE TO THE ROPES BUT KELTON IS PULLING HARD!! YET LEXI’S FORTUNATE ENOUGH TO GET TO THE ROPES WITH A BOOT FORCING THE OFFICIAL TO ORDER KELTON TO STOP!!
Gavin Kirkland: If he had her locked in the center of the ring, Kelton surely would’ve won but he got her close to the ropes and Lexi was able to save herself. Jon isn’t happy about that as he let go of Lexi but then begins to drop at her back and ribs before the official gets between him and her.
Eve: He then quickly goes to the ropes AND SPRINBOARDS HIMSELF INTO A MOONSAULT!! IT LANDS PERFECTLY ACROSS LEXI’S BACK!! He moves back to his feet as Lexi is holding her spine trying to shake off the pain but he throws an elbow right there to add more pain. He goes to grab her by the waist AND DEADLIFTS HER INTO A GERMAN-RELEASE SUPLEX THAT SENDS HER ALMOST OUTSIDE OF THE RING!!
Deadprez: Lexi in trouble right now as Kelton goes to the ropes and BASEBALL SLIDES LEXI OUT OF THE RING! She lands to the hard floor under the boos of the crowd as Jon goes and follows suit. He stands behind her, clocking her behind the head with a double ax handle sending Lexi to her knees BEFORE GETTING A SPINNING HEEL KICK TO THE HEAD TAKING HER DOWN!!!
Gavin Kirkland: He grabs her by the hair, swinging her against the barricade before shoving her back in the ring he seems to be looking to end this as he goes to a corner and calls for Final Atonement! Are we going to see the spear end this match?
Eve: Lexi’s slowly getting up, she doesn’t seem to know what is about to happen as Jon charges at h-
Deadprez: LIGHTS OUT FROM LEXI!!! THE SUPER KICK SUDDENLY APPLIED TO JON WHO GOES DOWN LIKE A RAG DOLL!! LEXI ALMOST CRUMBLES DOWN ON KELTON THAT FEELS LIKE A LAST DITCH EFFORT FOR HER AS SHE TRIES A COVER!!
Deadprez: SO CLOSE!!! BUT KELTON LIFTS THE SHOULDER BEFORE THE THIRD SLAP ON THE MAN BY THE REFEREE!! I bet Jon didn’t see the kick coming at all he was charging head down that he will remember tomorrow morning and we’re at a stalemate between the two!!
Gavin Kirkland: Both opponents are slowly getting back to their feet. Kelton tries to strike first but Lexi blocks and throws a punch! Kelton tries again, Lexi throws another strike! And a third! She’s starting to unload into Jon before throwing her into the ropes AND NAIL HIM DOWN WITH THE LOU THESZ PRESS!! RIGHT HAND! RIGHT HAND! RIGHT HAND FOM LEXI WHO THEN GOES TO THE ROPES AND THEN NAILS DOWN AN ELBOW DROP BEFORE TRASH TALKING DOWN TO KELTON UNDER THE CHEERS OF THE CROWD!!!
Eve: Lexi has an incredible opportunity to turn the tides of the match in her favor now! Will she make the most of it and perhaps win?
Deadprez: We’re finding out right now as Lexi brings Jon to his feet but then throws a backspin kick his way forcing him down to a knee. She goes for a roundhouse kick but ah look at Jon rolling outside of the ring! The crowd boos heavy as he is getting comfort from Londyn BUT LEXI LANDS ON JON, ALMOST ON LONDYN WITH A SUICIDE DOWN TACKLING KELTON INTO THE BARRICADE BEHIND HIM!!
Gavin Kirkland: Lexi’s trying to bring it to Jon who seems to me looking for a break but the Detroit native ain’t going to give him any and that’s commendable! She picks him up and take him for a quick snap suplex on the outside floor before positioning herself on the apron waiting for him as he gets up AND SHE THROWS HERSELF LEGS FIRST INTO A HURRICANRANA!!!!
Eve: Down goes Jon who holds his back in pain AND GETS FLATTEN WITH A RUNNING DROPKICK FROM LEXI!!!! The official is yelling at them to get back in the ring and Lexi obliges BUT RAMS JON’S HEAD ON THE APRON FIRST for good measure!
Deadprez: She drives an elbow against the spine of Kelton, grinding it clearly she’s getting payback for him having done the same to her AND SHE GOES FOR A CROSSFACE OF HER OWN!!! SHE’S TRYING TO MAKE HIM TAP WHEN HE FAILED TO DO IT EARLIER But look at him he moves on his hands and knees and rolls like a crocodile that manages to get Lexi’s grip to loosen and he moves away from her.
Gavin Kirkland: SHOULDER TACKLE FROM LEXI SENDING JON TO A CORNER! She quickly starts to stomp at Jon before moving him up to his feet, he’s staggering and faces her as she hops on the second rope AND JUMPS ON HIS BACK MAKING HIM FLIP WITH A SUNSET FLIP POWERBOMB!!! SHE KEEPS HIS SHOULDERS DOWN WITH HER FEET!! COVER!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: Kelton kicks out and keeps this match alive a while longer!! Lexi looks at the official to make sure he did a two count, he confirms and moves back to her feet before kicking Jon in the shoulder and forcing him to his feet. Lexi is still in command of the match at this time as she quickly goes to the ropes AND TAKES JON DOWN WITH RUNNING KNEES!
Eve: He’s on his back and flips to his stomach moving to his hands and knees trying to shake the cob-LEXI JUST SMACKED HIS HEAD BACK TO THE MAT WITH A RUNNING BULLDOG!!! Lexi maintains the offensive as she then goes to the corner behind Jon standing on the top turnbuckle AND FLIES INTO HIM WITH A FLYING CROSSBODY!!
Deadprez: LOOK JON ATTEMPTS TO REVERSE AND DO A ROLLUP BUT LEXI ROLLS AS WELL AND PARTS WAYS WITH JON! Quick to her feet she slips behind him AND TAKES HIM DOWN WITH A BACKSTABBER!!
Gavin Kirkland: More punishment on the back of Jon as Lexi goes for more elbows to his face and then sends him running into the ropes. Boot to the midsection FOLLOWED WITH A QUICK DDT!! SHE THEN QUICKLY GOES TO THE CORNER AGAIN ARE WE GOING TO SEE THE HEART STOPPER?
Eve: She’s ready for her elevated moonsault from the top rope and she flies BUT JON ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY!! Lexi expected it so she parkour rolled on landing rather than crash on the mat!
Deadprez: Jon moves to his feet and throws a punch to Lexi who strikes back with one of her own and the two of them suddenly begins to exchange a flurry of blows with Lexi gaining the advantage before sending Jon into a corner with an Irish whip WITH ENOUGH FORCE THAT HE FLIPPED AND CRASHED UPSIDE DOWN!!
Gavin Kirkland: This is an opening for Lexi and she knows it as she calls for Lights Out! Stomping the floor with her feet as the superkick is coming! The crowd loves it! Lexi’s getting pumped she’s about to g-
Eve: Hey look from the outside of the ring Londyn just tripped Lexi! She almost fell flat on her face thanks to Jon’s girl and Lexi’s livid!! She was going for the Lights Out which might lead to Frick Outta Here now girls are arguing savagely right now.
Lexi’s not being kind at all towards Zelaya who holds her own verbally and Lexi had enough of her she’s goes back to J-
HAKAI FROM JON!!!!! THE FUTURE SHOCK DDT DRILLS LEXI’S HEAD TO THE MAN!!! SHE DIDN’T SEE THAT ONE COMING AFTER SHE GOT A QUICK BOOT TO THE GUT FROM KELTON WHO HOOKS THE LEGS!!
LEXI KICKS OUT AGAIN!! AND JON’S HAD ENOUGH! HE’S CALLING FOR LAST ATONEMENT ONCE AGAIN AND HE’S IN THE CORNER WAITING FOR LEXI!! THANKS TO LORDYN JON HAS A CHANCE TO PUT LEXI AWAY!!!
SPEAAAAAAAAAARRRRRR THE LAST ATONEMENT DOWNS LEXI!!!!! AND JON GOES FOR THE COVER!!!!
( DING! DING!! DING!!! )
( ‘”Paint it Black” by the Rolling Stones fills the arena once again, the crowd boos as Jon gets his lead arm raised by the official once he moves away from Lexi. Londyn meanwhile gets inside the ring to celebrate)
Gina Romano: Ladies and gentlemen the winner of this match: JON KELTOOOOOOOONNN!!!!!!!!!!!
Deadprez: Damn it this wasn’t the right way to end this match! We had a great competitive bout on our hands and there goes Londyn with her actions that ruined Lexi’s chances to win! I feel sorry for her because she delivered one hell of a fight against a tough opponent!
Gavin Kirkland: Yeah well like it or not if Jon manages to get away with this the win is legit because the official didn’t see it. Let’s give Kelton credit however he performed admirably tonight he wasn’t a slouch and he got what he wanted which is victory. Lexi will have another go soon enough.
( The final shot of this segment is of Jon and Londyn all smiling, making their way up the ramp while Lexi looks both disappointed and frustrated to have been screwed over twice in a row. Fading into a commercial break.)
(As it fades back from a commercial break, ‘Without You’ by Halsey ft. Juice Wrld plays throughout the arena as the ring is set up with pink mats, matching furniture, a mirror so that Ashlynn Quinn can look at herself, there is a vanity and of course pictures of Ashlynn herself. There is a small bar with a fresh juice maker and cappuccino machine. She is dressed in a cute baby blue dinner dress and glittery heels, her hair in a half ponytail while holding the mic.)
Ashlynn Quinn: OMG! OMG! CLEVELAND OHIO! ARE YOU SOOOOO READY FOR THE BOUJEE BISTRO! I would first like to thank the GREATEST General Manager in ALLLLLLLLL of professional wrestling, Kennedy Street for giving me this opportunity to have MY OWN talk show! Isn’t that like so fetch! Do they even say fetch anymore? Oh, who cares! You love me!
(The crowd apparently couldn’t give two turds about Ashlynn as they were booing this little princess out of the building.)
Ashlynn Quinn: Okay…. So, like…. I am super excited for my first guest. It’s like, she is the Queen of everything and like my idol! I can’t say greater things about her that I haven’t already…. So, OMG…. Let me introduce her at this time….. the EAW National Elite Champion…. VEENA ADAMS!
(The crowd erupts in boos as “7even Rings” by Arianna Grande plays. Veena Adams slowly walks out in silver pants, open toed heels, and a matching halter top, looking beautiful and sassy as ever. The National Elite Championship rests on her shoulder as she looks around with her nose in the air making her way to the ring.)
Ashlynn Quinn; CHEER THIS WOMAN! STAND UP ON YOUR FEET AND GIVE HER THE RESPECT SHE DESERVES!
(Veena continues to walk toward the ring looking sassy.)
Deadprez: Veena Adams with all of her glory and seriously though, what are we doing here, huh? The “Boujee Bistro”? Are you kidding me, dawg?
Gavin Kirkland: I personally love it, because I can look at two of the most beautiful women that Showdown and the EAW as a whole have to offer!
Eve: This is all Kennedy Street, enough said.
(Veena enters the ring, both women kiss on opposite cheeks then life their right leg backwards in synchrony. Ashlynn then hands Veena a pink mic as they both sit down.)
Ashlynn Quinn: OMG! I am sooooo excited that you are here Veena, I mean like I totally think you are the greatest woman wrestler of like all time and stuff! Do you like my little setup!?
Veena Adams: It is so cute, I’m impressed.
Ashlynn Quinn: OMG! This is like a TikTok moment! But I don’t have my iPhone…. Anyways, you had to be the first guest, like so totally needed top be so that we can like talk about makeup and… oh I totally love your mani/pedi!
Veena Adams: Thanks! It’s spring so have to go with all the right shades you know, and I love your make-up! That eye shadow is so amazing, brings out the color of your eyes! The outfit too, talk about sexy. You know what? We should definitely have a spa day!
(The excitement can be barely contained by Ashlynn as she is bouncing up and down on her seat.)
Ashlynn Quinn: OMG! Really! I would sooooo love that! We can like be besties!?
Veena Adams: Yes! I would love a bestie!
Ashlynn Quinn: KENNEDY STREET IS THE GREATEST! Bringing Veena and Ashlynn together!
(The crowd continues to boo as they two hug it out.)
Ashlynn Quinn: Okay…. Okay…. Serious question though. You are the National Elite Champion and like you will take on all challengers, and there are so many others that want a shot at the title, so like who do you want to face?
Veena Adams: That is a great question, well as you know, I defeated Hans Grayson and Roberto De La Rosa. Who can’t I defeat, Ashlynn? There isn’t a single person on this roster that…..
(Suddenly “Invincible” by Pop Smoke starts to play throughout the arena as the fans get up and roar in cheers. It is none other than Chris Elite. Veena Adams slowly lowers the mic and looks completely annoyed being interrupted. Ashlynn quickly stands as Veena follows suit.)
Deadprez: WAIT A SECOND! IT IS CHRIS ELITE! CHRIS ELITE IS COMING OUT HERE!
Eve: Is Chris Elite going to answer the challenge!? IS he the next to go after the National Elite Championship!?
Gavin Kirkland: How dare he interrupt this beautiful women’s bonding moment with these two beauties!?
(Chris Elite signals for his music to be cut as he slowly makes his way to the ring, he has a mic in hand, making it to the steps.)
Chris Elite: Listen here beloved, I think girl talk is over, so let Chris Elite here say a few things. You know Veena, I remember you back on Dynasty, always trying to screw people over, could never get a handle on things, used your clout of being the niece of Mr. DEDEDE to get you what? Nothing. Then you were dick-riding Charlie Marr for all those years…..
(Ashlynn quickly cuts him off…)
Ashlynn Quinn: STOP! Right there! Veena would never dick-ride anyone!
Veena Adams: Thank you.
Ashlynn Quinn: You’re welcome.
Chris Elite: Right, just like you are doing to me right now sweetheart, tell you what, why don’t you forget Ronan Malosi and go out with a real man. Then maybe….
(This time Veena cuts him off and stands right in front of Chris Elite separating him from Ashlynn.)
Veena Adams: … the maybe nothing. You have the audacity to interrupt our moment? No, it doesn’t work like that. You want to talk about me and my career? What about yours? Honey, it’s gone down faster than a $10 Dollar Whore so far as I’m concerned we have no business here so get stepping!
Chris Elite: Ha… that’s funny, because we do. See, I know that you have an open contract, and you need a challenger for the National Elite Championship and well…. Here I am.
Veena Adams: Cute…. But no.
Chris Elite: Afraid of me, beloved?
(Veena starts to giggle….)
Veena Adams: Afraid of you? Tell you what…..
(Suddenly Veena tries to hit Chris Elite with the National Elite Championship, but he ducks.)
Deadprez: VEENA TRIED TO WALLOP CHRIS ELITE WITH THE BELT BUT SHE MISSED! CHRIS ELITE STEPS BACK…. BOX OFFICE SMASH!
Eve: NOOOOO! ASHLYNN QUINN STEPPED IN FRONT OF VEENA AND TOOK THAT KICK TO THE FACE KNOCKING HER OUT COLD AND EVEN OUT OF HER OWN HEELS! SHE IS SPLATTERED AND SPRAWLED OUT ON THE MAT AS VEENA ROLLS OUT OF THE RING GRABBING HER TITLE!
(Chris Elite stands there motioning around his waste that he wants the championship but Veena is not having any of it, she grabs Ashlynn’s ankles and yanks her right out of the ring, hoisting the unconscious beauty on her shoulders and backing up with Ashlynn and the National Elite Championship in tow.)
Gavin Kirkland: CHRIS ELITE HAD TO RUIN EVERYTHING HERE TONIGHT!
(Invincible by Pop Smoke starts to play throughout the arena as Chris Elite just smiles at an irate Veena who continues backtracking to the back as the scene fades to a commercial break.)
(The camera would fade back down to the ringside area from the commercial break, as Gina Romano is seen standing in the middle of the ring with a Showdown branded microphone, ready to announce the next match. Pandora Paisley has joined the commentary team at the desk, as she puts her headset on.)
Gavin Kirkland: IT’S A PLEASURE TO HAVE YOU JOINING US HERE, PANDORA! HIIII!!!!
Pandora Paisley: You see Gavin, and with no disrespect to you, but if I said that it was a pleasure to be joining the commentary for this match here, I would be lying. Sorry about it, love, but you make it worth it.
Gavin Kirkland: It’s… okay… 😍😅😖
Gina Romano: The following contest is a singles match with a twenty minute time limit; AND IT IS SET FOR ONE FALL!!!!!
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!!!!!
(‘Backlight’ by AmaLee would begin to blast throughout the speakers of the arena to a loud and positive reaction from the crowd, pouring down with cheers, as Holly Arrow would step out onto the stage! She doesn’t look too happy, mostly due to the loss she suffered at Reasonable Doubt a few weeks back, but she is looking to bounce back and in a huge way with this match. She makes her way down the ramp, before entering into the ring and backing into her corner.)
Gina Romano: INTRODUCING FIRST! FROM AUCKLAND, NEW ZEALAND, WEIGHING IN AT 149 POUNDS, SHE IS THE ‘QUEEN OF HELL!!!!!!!!’ HOLLYYYYYYYYYY ARROWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: HOLLY ARROW!!!! MY GOAT!!!! MY QUEEN!!!!! POTARA FOR EVER FOR LIFE WOOO!!!!!!!!
Deadprez: Calm down, dawg.
Eve: Holly Arrow is heading into this match tonight looking to make a statement. After she had made it down to the final two at Reasonable Doubt within the elimination match to determine the number one contender to the Answers World Championship, just to fall to Alex Myers in the end, you can tell that she isn’t happy, but she is looking to learn from her mistakes and get right back on track. She even stepped up on Dynasty just last night alongside Harper and put their names in the hat for a shot at the Unified Tag Team Championships!
Pandora Paisley: Now you see, I could honestly care less about Holly Arrow and what she is trying to do. But, tonight she is facing Ms. Extreme. Who knows? Maybe if Holly can beat Camille in the middle of that ring, she could get some big benefits from our general manager; Kennedy Street!
Gavin Kirkland: Yeah. 🤤
(Holly would sit down in her corner, as her theme fades out from there. It is then replaced by ‘They Call Me a God’ by NEFFEX, the positive reactions only getting even louder, as Ms. Extreme steps out onto the stage! She does not look happy whatsoever tonight, after all the hell that she has been put through by Kennedy Street and now her goons, and she is looking to make a statement just as much as Holly. She makes her way down the ramp, entering into the ring as she backs into her corner.)
Gina Romano: AND HER OPPONENT!!! FROM CALABASAS, CALIFORNIA, WEIGHING IN AT 140 POUNDS, SHE IS THE ‘PROBLEM CHILD!!!!!!!!!’ MS. EXTRMEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: :patrickmad: HER. THAT INCEL! THE WOMAN WHO HAS BEEN TORTURING KENNEDY STREET! I CAN’T BELIEVE HER! SHE NEEDS TO BE PUT IN HER PLACE! 🥺
Pandora Paisley: Nono mates, he’s actually right. Camille *does* need to be put in her place, especially after everything that she has done to Kennedy Street since her return to EAW. Which is pretty ironic considering it was Kennedy who gave her the opportunity to even come back in the first place. I hope that this match puts her through all sorts of torture, and then down the line, I will make sure I put a personal end to her.
(Ms. Extreme would pace around back and forth in her corner, both her and Holly Arrow looks anxious to get this match started. Holly gets up to her feet, cracking her neck, as the referee calls for the bell to sound, and the match officially begins.)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Deadprez: AND HERE WE ARE LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THIS HIGHLY AWAITED MATCHUP BETWEEN THE 2023 EMPRESS OF ELITE TOURNAMENT FINALIST AND THE LONGEST REIGNING UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPION IS OFFICIALLY UNDERWAY NOW, AND IT DOESN’T EVEN TAKE A FEW SECONDS TO SEE BOTH HOLLY ARROW AND MS. EXTREME GOING AT IT! Camille has Holly in a headlock now, and I wonder how Holly Arrow could be feeling at the second; Ms. Extreme is NOT easy to overpower— BUT ARROW MANAGES TO OUTSMART HER; FLIPPING HER OVER HER SHOULDERS AS NOW HOLLY LOOKS TO GAIN CONTROL!
Eve: THAT’S OBVIOUS, AS HOLLY ARROW IS SEEN REBOUNDING OFF THE ROPES, AND RUNNING AT MS. EXTREME IN FULL SPEED- BUT SHE’S CAUGHT WITH THE DRAGON SCREW! THE DRAGON SCREW BY MS. EXTREME AS HOLLY ARROW FALLS ALL THE WAY DOWN ON THE CANVAS, WHAT A SMART CATCH BY THE FORMER UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPION! AND NOW CAMILLE GRABS HOLLY PICKING HER RIGHT BACK UP TO HER FEET, BEFORE DROPPING HER DOWN WITH THE SNAP SUPLEX! SNAP SUPLEX ON HOLLY ARROW CONNECTS AND DROPS HER DOWN THE RING MAT AND ARROW IS DOWN, BEFORE QUICKLY GOING FOR THE COVER! THE COVER BY MS. EXTREME!
Gavin Kirkland: BUT HOLLY ARROW INSTANTLY FORCES THE SHOULDER UP FROM THE MAT, BEFORE IMMEDIATELY TRANSITIONING THIS WHOLE POSITION INTO A SMALL PACKAGE PIN! SMALL PACKAGE PIN BY HOLLY ARROW! HOLLY ARROW WITH THE SMALL PACKAGE PIN ON CAMILLE! THE ROLL-UP BY HOLLY AND SHE MIGHT STEAL IT, FROM OUT OF NOWHERE! HOLLY HAS BOTH OF CAMILLE’S SHOULDERS DOWN AND SHE MIGHT JUST STEAL IT! THE COVER BY HOLLY ARROW! IS IT REALLY ABOUT TO END UP LIKE THAT?
Deadprez: NO, MS. EXTREME IS EASILY ABLE TO POWERFULLY PUSH HOLLY ARROW OFF OF HERSELF, CLEARLY NOT YET! THE KICK OUT BY MS. EXTREME IN SUCH POWERFUL FASHION AS BOTH INDIVIDUALS SHOOT BACK UP TO THEIR FEET AS CAMILLE RUNS AT HOLLY, WHO CATCHES HER IN MID RUN WITH THE CALF KICK! THE CALF KICK BY HOLLY ARROW SENDS MS. EXTREME RIGHT DOWN AS HOLLY THEN QUICKLY REBOUNDS OFF THE ROPES, BEFORE MEETING CAMILLE WHO’S ON HER FEET FROM THE IMPACT OF THE MOVE WITH THE RUNNING SHOOT KICK! RUNNING SHOOT KICK TO MS. EXTREME SENDS HER DOWN! AND NOW SHE’S JUST BARELY UP ON HER KNEES, BEFORE BEING MET WITH THE RUNNING BASEMENT DROPKICK! WHAT A ROW OF MOVES BY HOLLY ARROW! WHAT A ROW OF MOVES!
Eve: WHICH IS APPARENTLY FAR FROM DONE BY THIS POINT, HOLLY ARROW IS OBVIOUSLY FAR FROM DONE! HOLLY ARROW GRABS MS. EXTREME PICKING HER RIGHT BACK UP TO HER FEET, BEFORE NAILING HER WITH A HUGE FOREARM STRIKE! FOREARM STRIKE BY HOLLY ARROW, FOLLOWED UP BY A PALM STRIKE! MS. EXTREME WOULD STUMBLE BACKWARDS IN HER FOOTSTEPS IN IMBALANCE IF IT WASN’T FOR THE FACT THAT HER ARM IS HELD BY HOLLY ARROW, JUST TO NAIL HER WITH THE ROUNDHOUSE KICK! THE ROUNDHOUSE KICK BY HOLLY ARROW SENDS CAMILLE RIGHT DOWN FLIPPING INSIDE OUT, BEFORE GETTING BACK UP TO HER FEET FROM THE IMPACT OF THE MOVE NOT FULLY AWARE!
Gavin Kirkland: BUT HOLLY NONETHELESS LOOKS TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THAT ANYWAY, AS SHE IRISH WHIPS HER INTO THE ROPES FORCING HER TO REBOUND, BEFORE CATCHING HER WITH A HUGE KICK TO THE GUT KEEPING HER UNABLE TO REVERSE, NAILING HER WITH A POWERFUL HEADBUTT THAT TURNS HER AROUND, AND NAILING HER WITH A SINGLE-KNEE BACKSTABBER! SINGLE-KNEE BACKSTABBER!!! THAT IS ONE OF HOLLY’S WELL-KNOWN COMBINATIONS, AND IT MIGHT PAY OFF NICELY AT THIS POINT! WHAT A MANEUVER BY HOLLY ARROW! MS. EXTREME IS DOWN!
Pandora Paisley: Ms. Extreme is “down”? Only “down”? I’m sure it would have been better for her if that was the case, mate; but she’s been literally getting her arse kicked this whole matchup so far! :mjlol:
Deadprez: NOW HOLLY ARROW LOOKS TO CAPITALIZE ON THE DAMAGES SHE’S CAUSED TO CAMILLE AS SHE’S SEEN CLIMBING HER WAY UP TO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE, WHICH SHE REACHES, AND NOW SHE’S BALANCING HERSELF! MS. EXTREME IS STILL DOWN AS HOLLY ARROW IS READY TO FLY, HOLLY ARROW IS BALANCING HERSELF AND NOW SHE FINALLY TAKES HER SHOT LEAPING OFF THE TOP TURNBUCKLE, AND CONNECTING WITH THE FROG SPLASH!!! FROG SPLASH BY HOLLY ARROW!!! FROG SPLASH! FROG SPLASH TO MS. EXTREME!!! THE FROG SPLASH CONNECTS AND HOLLY ARROW HAS ALL OF IT-
Eve: YEAH, SHE HAS ALL OF THE KNEES! MS. EXTREME IS ABLE TO GET UP HER KNEES IN THE LAST FEW MOMENTS, WHICH HOLLY ARROW CRASHES RIGHT INTO! WHAT A REVERSAL BY MS.EXTREME! WHAT A COUNTER! HOLLY ARROW WAS GOING FOR THE DIVING FROG SPLASH ON MS. EXTREME BUT MS. EXTREME WAS ABLE TO COUNTER! NOW HOLLY ROLLS AROUND HOLDING HER RIBS AND ABDOMEN AREA IN AGONY, BUT THAT IS ALL FOR MS. EXTREME TO GET THE CHANCE TO STAND BACK UP ON HER FEET, BEFORE GRABBING HOLLY ARROW STILL A LITTLE HURT AND DROPPING HER DOWN WITH AUTHORITY WITH THE HAIR-PULL GORY SPECIAL! THE HAIR-PULL GORY SPECIAL TAKES DOWN HOLLY ARROW!
Gavin Kirkland: BUT SHE WASTES NO TIME FOLLOWING THAT HOWEVER AS SHE QUICKLY ROLLS OUT INTO THE RING APRON, BEFORE STARTING TO MAKE HER WAY UP TO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE, WHICH SHE REACHES, AND STARTING TO BALANCE HERSELF! HOLLY ARROW IS OBVIOUSLY STILL DOWN TRYING TO STIR, BUT MS. EXTREME HAS THE CHANCE TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF IT, WHICH SHE’S LOOKING TO EXACTLY DO! AND SHE TAKES HER SHOT— SHOOTNG STAR SENTON! SHOOTING STAR SENTON TO HOLLY ARROW! THE SHOOTING STAR SENTON BY MS. EXTREME!!! WHAT A MANEUVER!! WHAT A MANEUVER!!
Pandora Paisley: Oh, did she actually start dominating? That’s sad, love, we’re literally like ten minutes into the match, I almost fell asleep! Pathetic!
Deadprez: NOW CAMILLE ROLLS HOLLY ONTO HER BACK, AND HOOKS BOTH LEGS!! MS. EXTREME WITH THE COVER!! THE COVER ON HOLLY ARROW!!!
Eve: SHOULDER UP BY HOLLY ARROW, HOLLY ARROW IS ABLE TO SURVIVE AS SHE KICKS OUT AT TWO! MS. EXTREME DOES NOT LOOK SURPRISED IN THE SLIGHTEST HOWEVER AS SHE GRABS HOLLY ARROW PICKING HER BACK UP TO HER FEET, BEFORE TOSSING HER INTO THE CORNER, AND RUNNING AT HER CONNECTING WITH THE CORNER SPEAR! CORNER SPEAR TO HOLLY ARROW! HOLLY ARROW IS HURT, HOLLY ARROW IS IMBALANCED! CAMILLE HOWEVER DOESN’T STOP AS SHE DRAGS HER FROM THE CORNER PULLING HER UP, BEFORE LIFTING HER UP IMMEDIATELY, TURNING AROUND WHILE SHE DOES, AND NAILING HER WITH THE EXPLODER SUPLEX INTO THE TURNBUCKLES! EXPLODER SUPLEX INTO THE TURNBUCKLES BY MS. EXTREME!!! WOW!! WHAT A MANEUVER! WHAT A HUGE DISPLAY OF BRUTALITY RIGHT HERE!
Gavin Kirkland: AND NOW CAMILLE GRABS HOLLY AS SHE PICKS HER RIGHT BACK UP TO HER FEET– BUT HOLLY ARROW ALL OF A SUDDEN IS ABLE TO NAIL HER WITH THE JAWBREAKER! THE JAWBREAKER IMBALANCES MS. EXTREME AS HOLLY THEN WASTES ZERO TIME NAILING HER WITH A HUGE FOREARM SMASH THAT TURNS HER AROUND, APPLYING A WAIST LOCK! THE WAIST LOCK IS APPLIED IN ON MS. EXTREME AND NOW SHE’S HELPLESS! HOLLY THEN LIFTS HER UP, BEFORE IMMEDIATELY CONNECTING WITH THE GERMAN SUPLEX! THE GERMAN SUPLEX ON MS. EXTREME! WHAT A MANEUVER! WHAT A MANEUVER BY HOLLY ARROW, WHO THEN HOOKS THE LEG OF MS. EXTREME AND GOES FOR THE COVER! HOLLY ARROW MIGHT REBOUND IN THE BEST WAY POSSIBLE AND BEAT MS. EXTREME! THE COVER BY HOLLY!
Pandora Paisley: 🥱 It took her so long to kick out. What a weak (BLEEP) to be honest.
Deadprez: WELL ANYWAY, MS. EXTREME WAS JUST ABLE TO FORCE THE SHOULDER UP AND SURVIVE WHICH DOESN’T CATCH HOLLY ARROW BY MUCH SURPRISE HOWEVER AS SHE PICKS HER UP TO HER FEET, BEFORE TOSSING HER OUT OF THE RING! BUT MS. EXTREME REVERSES TOSSING HER OUT OF THE RING HERSELF– WAIT NO, HOLLY HANGS ON THE ROPES! BUT MS. EXTREME WASTES ZERO TIME RUNNING IT HER WITH THE LARIAT OFF THE APRON, BUT SHE’S CAUGHT WITH THE ENZUIGIRI BY HOLLY ARROW, WHO JUMPS BACK IN THE RING, BEFORE GRABBING CAMILLE, AND TOSSING HER OUT OF THE RING! MS. EXTREME GOES CRASHING INTO THE FLOOR AT RINGSIDE!
Eve: AND NOW HOLLY LOOKS TO CAPITALIZE AS SHE QUICKLY RUNS OFF THE ROPES TALKING ADVANTAGE, BEFORE CONNECTING WITH THE SUICIDE DIVE! SUICIDE DIVE! THE SUICIDE DIVE CONNECTS AS MS. EXTREME HITS THE BARRICADE! BOTH WOMEN ARE DOWN AFTER THAT SUICIDE DIVE BY HOLLY ARROW! BOTH WOMEN ARE DOWN!
Gavin Kirkland: HOWEVER THOUGH, HOLLY ARROW IS THE FIRST TO START RECOVERING, OBVIOUSLY NONETHELESS AS MOST OF THE DAMAGE WAS INFLICTED ON MS. EXTREME, AND NOW HOLLY ARROW IS BACK UP ON HER FEET AS SHE GRABS MS. EXTREME, BEFORE TOSSING HER INTO THE BARRICADE— NO, NEVERMIND, CAMILLE REVERSES, AS SHE TOSSES HOLLY INTO THE STEEL STEPS HERSELF! MS. EXTREME LOOKS BACK AT OUR ANNOUNCER’S TABLE, BEFORE TARGETING NONE OTHER THAN… YOU, PANDORA! WHAT IS GOING ON?
(Ms. Extreme walks down to the announcer’s table, clearly distracted by Pandora Paisley, who’s seen taunting her with an evil grin on her face. Ms. Extreme looks disgusted and offended, while Pandora however is taking advantage of that as she’s ensuring that she stays on her nerves…)
Pandora Paisley: What’s the matter, love? Are you really so distracted by my good looking that you’re in to screw up your own match? Tells a lot!
Ms. Extreme: (off-mic) …please shut the (BLEEP) u-
Deadprez: OH, HOLLY ARROW FROM BEHIND WITH THE LARIAT TAKING DOWN MS. EXTREME! APPARENTLY, SHE WENT OUT OF HER WAY TO GET HERSELF DISTRACTED, AND NOW SHE’S PAYING THE PRICE FOR IT! HOLLY ARROW IS SEEN BEATING THE HECK OUT OF MS. EXTREME WITH THE REPEATED RIGHTS AND LEFTS, BEFORE PICKING HER RIGHT BACK UP TO HER FEET, AND INSTANTLY LIFTING HER UP, DROPPING HER BACK DOWN WITH A HUGE SNAP SUPLEX! SNAP SUPLEX BY HOLLY ARROW ABSOLUTELY NAILS MS. EXTREME! WHAT A MANEUVER BY ARROW!
Eve: HOWEVER, NOT TOO LONG AFTER THAT HOLLY TAKES A FEW MOMENTS TO CATCH HER BREATH BEFORE PICKING CAMILLE RIGHT BACK UP TO HER FEET, ROLLING HER BACK INSIDE THE RING, AND ROLLING BACK IN HERSELF! HOLLY IS BACK UP ON HER FEET NOW AS SHE GRABS MS. EXTREME PICKING HER RIGHT BACK UP TO HER FEET, BEFORE LIFTING HER UP ON HER SHOULDERS, AND IMMEDIATELY PLANTING HER HEAD DOWN THE RING MAT WITH THE ‘SECTUMSEMPRA!!!!’ ‘SECTUMSEMPRA!!!’ THE ‘SECTUMSEMPRA’ BY HOLLY ARROW ABSOLUTELY NAILS MS. EXTREME, POSSIBLY EVEN OUT OF THIS MATCHUP!!! THE BURNING HAMMER CONNECTS AND ABSOLUTELY NAILS MS. EXTREME!!! AND NOW HOLLY GOES FOR THE COVER, DROPPING DOWN FOR IT AS SHE LAYS DOWN ON MS. EXTREME!!!! THE COVER!!! THE COVER BY HOLLY ARROW!!! SHOULDERS ARE DOWN!!!
Gavin Kirkland: KICK OUT!!! MS. EXTREME FORCES THE SHOULDER UP, CLEARLY STILL HAVING A LITTLE MORE IN HER TANK! HOLLY ARROW IS CAUGHT BY SURPRISE A LITTLE, BUT THAT DOESN’T FAZE HER HOWEVER! HOLLY STANDS BACK UP ON HER FEET AS SHE PULLS UP CAMILLE— WHO NAILS HER WITH A HUGE PUNCH TO THE ABDOMEN AREA! AND A RIGHT HOOK TO THE RIBS! MS. EXTREME IS NOW BACK UP ON HER FEET NAILING HER WITH THE RAPID RIGHTS AND LEFTS, BEFORE SUDDENLY KICKING HER IN THE GUT, AND….
Deadprez: BAM!! THAT MUST’VE HURT!!! ‘TWIST OF FATE!!!’ ‘TWIST OF FATE’ BY MS. EXTREME!!!! CAMILLE WITH THE ‘TWIST OF FATE!!!!’ THE ‘TWIST OF FATE’ TO HOLLY ARROW!!! THE SPINNING NECKBREAKER CONNECTS AND ABSOLUTELY NAILS HOLLY ARROW, AND THAT IS CLEAR AND EASY TO TELL BY THE SITUATION WE’RE WITNESSING RIGHT NOW!!! WHAT A MANEUVER BY MS. EXTREME!!! WHAT A MOVE!!!

EXTREME IS NOT HAPPY ABOUT IT!! HOLLY ARROW KICKS OUT AND SURVIVES, AND MS. EXTREME NOW KNOWS THAT MORE NEEDS TO BE DONE IF SHE WANTS TO LEAVE THIS MATCH WITH THE VICTORY!!
Pandora Paisley: She knows she needs to do more, but does she even think she *can* do more? I doubt it, love.
Gavin Kirkland: THAT’S RIGHT, PANDORA! THAT UNGRATEFUL SNAKE HAS TO DIE–
Deadprez: CHILL OUT, DAWG. ANYWAY, IN THE RING WE CAN SEE MS. EXTREME LOOKING TO END THIS MATCHUP AS SHE IS STANDING RIGHT ABOVE THE GROUNDED HOLLY ARROW, APPARENTLY LOOKING TO GO FOR HER WELL-KNOWN FINISHING MANEUVER– AND SHE DOES INDEED!!! SHE DOES INDEED!!! ‘HOLY GROUND!!!!’ ‘HOLY GROUND!!!’ ‘HOLY GROUND’ BY CAMILLE; THE ‘HOLY GROUND TO HOLLY ARROW!!! THE LEAPING DOUBLE FOOT STOMP CONNECTS AND THAT HAS TO BE ABSOLUTELY ALL THERE IS TO IT!!!! MS. EXTREME DROPS DOWN FOR THE COVER!!! THAT’S IT!!!
Eve: WHAT IN THE HECK?! WHAT JUST HAPPENED?!?!! HOW DID HOLLY ARROW JUST MANAGED TO STAY ALIVE AND FORCE THE SHOULDER UP?!?!?! THIS IS SURREAL, THIS IS INSANE! MS. EXTREME IS SHOCKED AS SHE HAS ALL THE RIGHTS IN THE WORLD TO BE, AND SO ARE ALL OF US! MS. EXTREME NOW GRABS HOLLY ARROW PICKING HER RIGHT BACK UP TO HER FEET AS SHE–
(Suddenly, in a swerve that nobody expected, Pandora Paisley is seen taking her headset off and throwing it away, before standing up, leaving commentary, and rolling inside the ring…)
Gavin Kirkland: YO, WHAT THE HELL?! PANDORA PAISLEY JUST LEFT US AS NOW SHE’S IN THE RING, AND SHE TAKES DOWN MS. EXTREME WITH A BIG BOOT! PANDORA’S BOX! MS. EXTREME FALLS DOWN AS THE REFEREE HAS CAUGHT ALL THAT, AND HE CALLS FOR THE BELL!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Gina Romano: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… HERE IS YOUR WINNER BY DISQUALIFICATION… MS. EXTREMEEEEEEEE!!!!!
(The crowd boos loudly in reaction to what just happened as Pandora keeps on beating up Camille and Holly with the repetitive continuous stomps.)
Deadprez: PANDORA PAISLEY JUST STUCK HER NOSE INTO THIS MATCHUP AS NOW SHE GRABS HOLLY ARROW, BEFORE TAKING HER DOWN WITH A HUGE LARIAT! HOLLY HOWEVER IS NOT AT ALL EVEN PANDORA’S FOCUS AS SHE SHIFTS HER ATTENTION BACK TO MS. EXTREME, WHO SHE PICKS BACK UP TO HER FEET, AND— OH, LITERALLY BREAKS THE SKIN OF WITH THE ‘CAT’S CLAWS!!!’ OUCH!!!! ‘CAT’S CLAWS!!!!’ THE EYE RAKE TO CAMILLE TAKES HER DOWN IN UNCONSCIOUSNESS, BLEEDING FROM THE EYE!!! WHAT A MANEUVER AND WHAT A MESSAGE BY PANDORA PAISLEY!!!! POINT MADE!!!
(Pandora Paisley places her foot right on top of Ms. Extreme’s neck, standing tall as she gets nothing in reaction but a rain of boos pouring down on her from the audience however. But by the look of things that means nothing to her as she just managed to do what she wants, and that was to take out Ms. Extreme and show her a preview of what she obviously is a firm believer that she will be about to bring her way…)
Eve: Statement made, point proven, message sent. What an unexpected end to a great match, and while what just transpired makes nobody happy, it makes Pandora Paisley happy and that is all that matters for her. Pandora was just able to get her message across and while the intrigue of what Ms. Extreme will do whenever she responds to what just happened causes nothing but excitement for all of us, tonight it’s Pandora Paisley who stands tall. We will see you after this short commercial break!
(The final shot is seen as Pandora Paisley is seen making her out to the exit, clearly happy with the chaos she just caused, as on the other hand it’s Ms. Extreme and Holly Arrow in the ring who are laying down in utter unconsciousness. From there, Saturday Night Showdown fades elsewhere.)
(We cut away from the normal programming, and to a darkened room, a single lamp not really illuminating the place. Sat in a chair, with his hands steepled is a man, apparently dressed in a long trench coat that looks like it is from the 1940’s. On the desk is a name plate, one that he bought for himself just for situations like this which reads Richard Tracie P.I. He reaches forwards, and lights a cigarette, taking a couple of drags from it and blowing the smoke into the air. He then places the cigarette in the ashtray, and leans forwards, almost threateningly, and he speaks.)
Richard Tracie P.I: So, where were you on the night of the Mur… assault?
(The camera spins around, and shows Kennedy Street, who is more concerned about the filter on the screen not doing her complexion any favors.)
Kennedy Street: No Honey, I am not one of the accused.
Richard Tracie P.I: Everyone is currently a suspect Ms. Street. So where were you at the time?
Kennedy Street: In my office
Richard Tracie P.I: And do you have anyone who can confirm that?
Kennedy Street: Only a fair few millions watching on free-per-view, plus my colleague Heidi Huxley.
Richard Tracie P.I: Oh… right.
Kennedy Street: Look Mr. Tracie, this is extremely embarrassing for us, and we have paid good money to get the best Private Investigator we can find. I trust you will get this investigation done as promptly as possible.
Richard Tracie P.I: I assure you Ms. Street, I will find the perpetrator.
Kennedy Street: Good, because this has made me extremely angry. Whoever did this WILL be made to pay.
(The scene cuts for a second, and then opens again, Richard Tracie P.I now stood in a locker room with a notebook in hand. He is looking around the locker room, more than likely for clue, as Lexi stands by wondering what the heck is going on. The detective flicks through a few pages, arriving at the part he wants.)
Richard Tracie P.I: So, you are Lexi, is that correct?
Lexi: That’s me
Richard Tracie P.I: I’d like to ask you a few questions if I may.
(He looks at her up and down, Lexi taking that as him checking her out.)
Lexi: Bro, take a photo it will last longer.
Richard Tracie P.I: I have heard that you have lost to her in the past, is that correct?
Richard Tracie P.I: Well, yes… that is what this is all about.
Lexi: You didn’t say.
Richard Tracie P.I: I assumed everyone knew about my investigation.
Lexi: Nah, no one cares too much about it really. I certainly don’t anyways. Got what was coming to her if you ask me the way she treats people.
Richard Tracie P.I: But losing to her gives you motive does it not?
Lexi: Dude, I used to lose a lot… I don’t go around assaulting everyone I’ve ever lost to.
Richard Tracie P.I: I see you also had an infatuation with Adam Lucas, over your ex-fiancé for a long time. Would you agree that you can be hot headed.?
(Lexi laughs, which annoys the Private Investigator.)
Lexi: Do you know my brother?
Richard Tracie P.I: I can’t say I do.
Lexi: Anyway, it wasn’t me.
Richard Tracie P.I: So, do you have an alibi?
Lexi: Sure… I was getting ready for my match. And anyway, if it was me who put Kassidy Heart on her back, I promise you that I’d want the world to know about it.
(Lexi shrugs her shoulders, the Detective stroking his chin thoughtfully.)
Richard Tracie P.I: Sleep soundly young lady, I don’t think it’s you.
(The camera cuts again, this time to the parking lot, Richard Tracie P.I stood next to a car, with none other than Lucas Johnson.)
Richard Tracie P.I: Mr. Johnson, I am investigating the assault on Kassidy Heart on behalf of the company.
Lucas Johnson: Please don’t call me Mr. Johnson… There are people here that would have a field day with that.
Richard Tracie P.I: As you wish. So, Ms. Street tells me that you are an ideal suspect.
Lucas Johnson: Really, how so?
Richard Tracie P.I: As part of my job, I compile a profile on everyone who could be responsible. As it happens, right now that is most of the roster.
Lucas Johnson: OK, so what does that got to do with me?
Richard Tracie P.I: Well, you certainly need the attention right now, so attacking someone like Kassidy Street would give you a huge boost would it not?
Lucas Johnson: First of all, I have all the attention I need. And secondly, I had just been in a ladder match and could barely stand, never mind sneak up on Kassidy Heart and take her out.
Richard Tracie P.I: Hmmm, I never said anyone ‘snuck’ up on her
Lucas Johnson: Believe me, Kassidy is not the kind of person you front up to. If I had tried to attack her in the state I was in, she would have kicked my ass… period. I’m not going to pretend I love her, but it wasn’t me who did this.
(Richard Tracie P.I once again strokes his chin, which will become his trademark during this investigation.)
Richard Tracie P.I: Thank you Mr. John… sorry, Lucas. You’ve been very helpful. I will eliminate you from my inquiries.
Lucas Johnson: Good, because I don’t need Kassidy getting ideas.
(The scene cuts again, and this time it is back in the office where we started, Richard Tracie P.I once again behind the desk, when a knock at the door is heard.)
Richard Tracie P.I: Enter suspect number zero zero three.
(The door opens and Komatsu Ogawa walks in, looking just as annoyed as he always does these days. The Private Investigator offers a seat, which Komatsu declines with a shake of the head.)
Richard Tracie P.I: So, Mr. Ogawa, where were you on the night of the assault, and do you have an alibi?
(Although it was straight to the point, Komatsu just stares at him, not saying a word.)
Richard Tracie P.I: Okayyyyyy… is it fair to say that you have a history of attacking people behind their backs?
(Komatsu again just remains emotionless and doesn’t say a word but does shrug his shoulders.)
Richard Tracie P.I: So, pleading the fifth huh and refusing to answer?
Komatsu Ogawa: It is my right.
(Richard Tracie P.I is surprised to actually hear Ogawa’s voice and presses forwards.)
Richard Tracie P.I: The others I have interrogated were more than willing, and thus were exonerated. But you Sir, your actions lead me to believe that you have guilty written all over you.
(Ogawa just grins, shaking his head.)
Komatsu Ogawa: Kassidy Heart is just way above my pay grade.
(Annoyed, the P.I screams at Komatsu.)
Richard Tracie P.I: GET OUT!!!
(Komatsu just laughs, and heads to the door.)
Richard Tracie P.I: I’ll find whoever it is, and if it’s you… justice will be served.
(The camera cuts away again, and once more it is just Richard Tracie P.I and Kennedy.)
Kennedy Street: So, did you find our assailant Honey?
Richard Tracie P.I: No, but I have eliminated some from my enquiries, I’ll find them Ms. Street you have my word.
Kennedy Street: Good, because when you do, I’m going to pull them into a million pieces, and then feed them to Kassidy…
Richard Tracie P.I: Those sound like the actions of a suspect to me
(He eyes her suspiciously, Kennedy for a moment looking flustered, with eyes on her.)
Richard Tracie P.I: Don’t worry, I know it wasn’t you. You seem like you care for your roster a lot, and would do nothing to hurt them
Kennedy Street: That’s right Honey… Kennie loves them all.
(The camera pans to under the desk, where Kennedy has her fingers crossed.)
Richard Tracie P.I: I’ll catch them out. From here on in… the Game is afoot.
(Kennedy scowls, having heard that somewhere before, before the scene fades to the last commercial break.)
( Saturday Night Showdown returns from a commercial break, and the crowd is ready for the final match of the night. Gina Romano stands in the middle of the ring and looks very excited to announce the upcoming main event. )
Gina Romano: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, YOUR MAIN EVENT OF THE EVENING IS A SIX PERSON TAG TEAM MATCH AND IT’S SCHEDULED FOR…
Crowd: ONE FALL!
( ‘You Know My Name’ by Chris Cornell hits the PA system as Adam Lucas makes his way out from behind the curtain up to the stage into a VERY HUGE cheer from the crowd. Adam looks confident as always before making his way down to the ring. )
Gina Romano: INTRODUCING FIRST!… FROM NEW YORK, WEIGHING IN AT 231 POUNDS… THE 2023 KING OF ELITE WINNER!… ‘THE NEXT LEVEL’ !!!!!!… ADAMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM!!!!!!!!!!!…. LUCASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: ALL HAILS… KING LUCAS! I love this man as always, and if I could sleep with him at night, I would. I will be there for him no matter what.
Eve: We don’t NEED to know THAT, alright?
Gavin Kirkland: Hey, I’m just sayin-
Gavin Kirkland: Oh come on! Alright fine! Earlier this year, Adam achieved a huge success in King of Elite by winning a deadly triple threat match against Bronson Daniels and Drake King, securing the King of Elite crown. Today, he has been crowned as the King of Elite and his next royal quest is to fight in a six-man tag team match alongside Alex Myers and Donovan Duke against Jake Smith, Amir Yusuf, and Impact tonight.
( As Adam walks down to the ring, ‘If You Want To’ by beabadoobee begins to play, and Alex Myers, with Willow Chara, follows him from behind, making their way down from the stage. Alex looks as serious as ever because their sights are now set on the Answers World Champion, and they know that things will be different. )
Gina Romano: HIS PARTNER!… ACCOMPANIED BY WILLOW ACHARA!… FROM AUCKLAND, NEW ZEALAND… WEIGHING IN AT 180 POUNDS… ‘THE GUARDIAN ANGEL’ … ALEXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX MYERSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: People love Alex Myers. Everybody loves Alex Myers because they are a great person. Alex Myers is loved by all because they are a friendly and relatable goat, yessir! That woman too!
Eve: Alex has previously defeated Holly Arrow, Jon Kelton, Donovan Duke, and Harley Lewis. Tonight, they face a new challenge, one of the biggest tasks of their career, which is to fight for the Answers World Champion title. Jake Smith currently holds the championship and this will be a difficult obstacle for Alex to overcome.
( Adam and Alex both arrive at the front of the ring before entering. As they make their way to the ring, ‘The Outsiders’ by Eric Church begins to play, replacing Alex’s theme, signaling the arrival of Donovan Duke. The cheers from the crowd continue as he quickly jogs down to join the other two elitists around the ring.)
Gina Romano: AT LAST… FROM STILLWATER, OKLAHOMA!… WEIGHING IN AT 212 POUNDS… HE IS ‘THE OKLAHOMA GENTLEMAN’… DONOVANNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN!!!!!… DUKEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: THIS TEAM IS GREAT! Do you think they are going to win tonight?!
Deadprez: I would say that the chances of them winning are still very tough because on the other hand, they are facing multiple-time champion Amir, the current Answers World Champion Jake Smith, and EAW legend Impact. However, it’s not impossible for the three of them to win. It will be a difficult task, but with hard work and determination, they could potentially pull off a victory.
Eve: I mean, Donovan is the longest-reigning National Elite champion in history, but I believe there is still a chance for him to come out victorious, just as there is for Adam and Alex. These three have the potential to work together and create something magical in the ring.
( All three elitists are currently in the ring, beginning to remove their entrance gear. ‘A Stranger I Remain’ by Free Dominguez hits, and the crowd responds with loud boos as Amir Yusuf enters, with Pandora Paisley following behind him, wearing an evil smirk on her face. Amir appears cocky and arrogant towards the crowd, as always, before striding confidently to the ring and entering. )
Gina Romano: THEIR OPPONENT!… ACCOMPANIED BY PANDORA PAISLEY!… FROM KUWAIT!… WEIGHING IN AT 182 POUNDS!… ‘THE IRREPLACEABLE’ !!!!!!… AMIRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!…. YUSUFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: Where is his Interwire title? Oh right HAHA!
Eve: Come on, that’s not very funny. Amir won the title with great pride and put everything he had into the match, but unfortunately, it was PJ’s luck that caused him to lose. Amir would have been a great Interwire champion, but luck was not on his side that day. Maybe he could do something great in this match and become a better and stronger talent, who knows?
( Amir enters the ring as ‘M3tamorphosis’ by Playboi Carti (ft. Kid Cudi) begins to play to be greeted by boos that grow louder by the moment. Impact makes his entrance, with the crowd showing their disdain for him. He appears cold and collected as he looks around at the crowd that despises him, shrugs, and then makes his way to the ring.)
Gina Romano: NEXT!… FROM SEATTLE, WASHINGTON!… WEIGHING IN AT 221 POUNDS!… THE EAW HALL OF FAMER!!!… IMPACTTTTTT!!!!!!!!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: The crowd has always hated Impact, but I have to respect what he has accomplished in this business and all the accolades he has earned. He is undoubtedly one of the greatest of all time in every aspect.
Eve: No doubt, Impact has made many great contributions to this business, despite his controversial personality. Although he suffered a loss against Jake Smith in the Hell in a Cell Armageddon match, perhaps this match will be the opportunity for him to bounce back from that defeat.
( Impact joins Amir in the ring, both of them fixing their gaze on the opposing team. Finally, ‘WAR’ by Grandson blasts through the arena, met with a loud cheer from the crowd as Jake Smith makes his entrance, looking cool with the Answers World Championship around his waist. He smiles as he makes his way down from the stage and enters the ring. )
Gina Romano: FINALLY!… FROM ATHERTON, CALIFORNIA!… WEIGHING IN AT 210 POUNDS… HE IS THE EAW ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION!… ‘THE PROCESS’ !!!!…. JAKEEEEEEEEE!!!!…. SMITHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!
Gavin Kirkland: And here he is! The current Answers World Champion, Jake Smith, is here, and he looks as happy as always to be the champion, and, of course, he is living with his beautiful girlfriend, Holly Arrow.
Eve: So you are happy for them?
Gavin Kirkland: https://youtu.be/dpKc8N3FJsQ
( DING DING DING! )
Gavin Kirkland: The Answers World Champion takes on his upcoming challenger as the opening of this match. Jake Smith and Alex Myers start off as legal competitors and ALEX IS WAITING FOR THIS MOMENT FOR SUCH A LONG TIME AS THEY RUSH OUT OF THE CORNER AND SEND OUR ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION RIGHT BACK INTO THE CORNER WITH A HUGE SHOTGUN DROPKICK!
Eve: Jake has nothing to take a defense and ends up getting his back crashing into the corner before rolling down to the outside of the ring. Jake holds onto his back and turns his attention back to Alex…. ALEX JUMPS OVER THE ROPES AND A TOPE CON HILO TAKES JAKE OUT RIGHT OFF THE BAT!
Deadprez: Alex starts coming back to their feet, and DONOVAN LOOKS TO HELP HIM OUT BUT AMIR RUNS FROM THE SIDE TO MEET DONOVAN, WHO IS RISING BACK TO HIS KNEES, AND PLANTS DONOVAN’S HEAD TO THE FLOOR THIS TIME WITH A HURRICANRANA ON THE OUTSIDE!…
Gavin Kirkland: IT’S ADAM’S TURN! ADAM POPS OFF THE APRON DOWN TO THE GROUND, LIFTS AMIR UP, AND SENDS HIS BACK CRASHING DOWN TO THE FLOOR WITH A HUGE SPINEBUSTER!…. ADAM RISES BACK TO HIS FEET INTO A MOONSAULT OFF THE APRON BY IMPACT!
Eve: Impact is the last one standing on the outside before picking up his recent rival Jake Smith and sending him underneath the bottom rope back inside the ring- ALEX LOOKS TO ATTACK FROM BEHIND BUT IMPACT DODGES AND LETS ALEX CRASHING THEMSELVES INTO THE RING’S APRON! Impact helps Alex up before throwing them back inside and jogs down to pop up to his team’s apron. Impact keeps his eyes on the match and makes sure that his team is doing well at the moment. Jake starts pulling himself off the mat back to his feet, and he makes it before Alex can. Alex is still struggling to get back to their feet, and Willow keeps her eyes filled with worry on them from the ringside area.
Deadprez: Jake picks Alex up and sends him down to the corner, running down and hitting them right on the mouth with a Shining Wizard!… pulling him out of the corner and getting them upon his shoulders…. USHIGOROSHI CONNECTS!
Gavin Kirkland: Alex is in a very bad spot right now, and they need to work their way out of there soon before Jake Smith gains more advantage in this match than ever. Jake doesn’t go for a pin before throwing Alex down to his team’s corner with Amir and Impact, who have just gotten back into the match….
( TAG! )
Eve: Jake makes a tag with Impact as he enters the ring and relentlessly stomps on Alex, who is still lying down on the ground. Impact adds more insult to injury from what he had done to Alex at No Regards last year, which I’m sure Alex still remembers. Impact picks Alex off the mat before throwing him down to the ropes. Alex bounces off the ropes, and Impact catches him before executing a Tilt-a-Whirl Backbreaker, breaking Alex’s spine in half! Impact picks Alex up again and crashes their back with the same old knee that he just did!
Deadprez: Alex is going through a lot of pain in most parts of their back right now, but Impact doesn’t seem to stop at all. Impact starts stepping on Alex before jumping off and using both feet to stomp on Alex’s back. He walks off Alex’s back before stiffly kicking them right in the side of his head, like taking a shot at the goal post!
Gavin Kirkland: Alex suddenly faints, and the referee slides in to check on Alex and make sure they’re okay. Alex holds their head in pain and tries to make a comeback by getting back up on their feet…. IMPACT TAKES THEM RIGHT DOWN TO THE GROUND WITH A SPINNING WHEEL KICK, NOT GIVING THEM A CHANCE TO STAND!
Eve: Alex is still in serious trouble right here, and Impact keeps making it much worse for them. Impact steps in and picks Alex back up to their feet. He then sends Alex down to the ropes and follows them up. But Alex bounces off the ropes and slides underneath Impact’s legs, popping back to their feet and quickly connecting Impact with a Superkick!…. TURNING IMPACT INSIDE OUT WITH A DISCUS CLOTHESLINE INTO A KNEELING POSITION!…. A SHINNING WIZARD ENDS THE COMBINATION!
Deadprez: Alex’s combo takes out the ten-time World Champion! Alex isn’t playing around in this match at all, despite it being some sort of “Can They Co-Exist?” case. Alex goes down to the corner, and Donovan reaches his hand out to make a tag with his partner….
Gavin Kirkland: HERE COMES JAKE SMITH, JUMPING OVER THE ROPES AND TAKING OUT HIS FORMER INSURGENCE PARTNER WITH A BICYCLE KICK! AMIR FOLLOWS JAKE UP FROM BEHIND AND SENDS ADAM OFF THE APRON WITH A SUPERKICK! Alex is now in the middle of the ring with three men surrounding them. Impact picks up Alex and delivers a right elbow smash, throwing a right to Jake and Amir INTO A DOUBLE SUPERKICK BY BOTH MEN!… TAKING THEM DOWN FROM BEHIND WITH IMPACT’S RUNNING BULLDOG IN PROCESS!
Eve: Adam and Donovan help each other to their feet. JAKE GOES FOR ADAM WITH A BASEBALL SLIDE RIGHT INTO HIS FACE ON THE OUTSIDE, AND AMIR JUMPS OVER THE ROPES, TAKING DONOVAN OUT AT THE SAME TIME. JAKE HANDLES ADAM WITH A SLINGSHOT FACEBUSTER, PLANTING DONOVAN’S FACE DOWN TO THE GROUND! Both men leave the job for Impact to go for a pin on Alex!
Deadprez: ALEX LIFTS THEIR SHOULDER OFF THE MAT! Impact isn’t very satisfied, but Amir quickly pops up to his apron, throws his hand down for Impact, and looks to make a turn for him this time against Alex Myers. Impact starts crawling down to his corner while Amir waits….
( TAG! )
Gavin Kirkland: A tag is made, and Amir is now a legal man of his team. Amir rushes out of the corner and quickly picks Alex back to their feet, sending them right into the corner and crashing Alex with a clothesline in the corner. Amir sends Alex rolling down to the ground.… A STANDING MOONSAULT BY AMIR YUSUF ON ALEX MYERS!
Eve: Alex is getting packed up right here by the opposite team, and none of them seem to slow down on him at all. Amir pushes himself off the mat back to both feet before charging at Alex and barraging him with a flurry of punches as the crowd starts booing. None of these people here in Cleveland like what he’s doing here at all!
( Amir lets Alex go and starts taunting the crowd, receiving more jeers and hatred for hurting their Guardian Angel. )
Amir Yusuf: (Off-Mic) Oh yeah, wanna cry, huh?!
( STOMP! )
Gavin Kirkland: Amir stomps and presses his right foot right on Alex’s gut, making it much worse for Alex who is already getting added insults to injuries. Don’t hurt Alex like that, you Neanderthal bum!
Deadprez: Amir stops playing around with Alex before grabbing them back to their feet and sending them straight down to the ropes… ALEX BOUNCES OFF AND TAKES AMIR OUT WITH A SPRINGBOARD VARIATION OF A DIVING CROSSBODY! AMIR IS DOWN!
Eve: IMPACT SLIDES BACK INTO THE RING AND FORCES ALEX TO STAY DOWN ON THE GROUND WITH ‘FLIGHT SIGHTS’!!! THE BEAUTIFUL LIONSAULT CAUSES ALEX TO CRUMBLE RIGHT BACK DOWN TO THE RING’S GROUND!!!
Gavin Kirkland: ADAM ROLLS UNDERNEATH THE BOTTOM ROPE BACK TO INSIDE OF THE RING AND GRABS IMPACT QUICKLY BY HIS ARM BACK TO HIS FEET, TOSSING HIM TO THE FRONT… AND A CRADLE PILEDRIVER PLANTS IMPACT’S HEAD TO THE GROUND! ‘HONOR BOMB’ TAKES OUT IMPACT!!!!
Deadprez: JAKE SMITH MAKES HIS WAY BACK TO THE INSIDE OF THE RING AND GOES FOR A SUPERKICK ON ADAM. ADAM ROLLS UNDERNEATH JAKE’S LEG BACK TO HIS FEET AND LOOKS TO TAKE JAKE DOWN INSTEAD WITH A DISCUS PUNCH… DUCKING UNDERNEATH AND CATCHES ADAM WITH A BACKSTABBER!… HANGING ON AND TAKING ADAM OUT COMPLETELY WITH ‘PROPHETIC’ !!!!!!! ROLLING CUTTER IN SHADES OF TYLER PARKER!!!!
Eve: NOW DONOVAN IS BACK INSIDE THE RING, AND HE COMES FOR THE ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION. HE GOES FOR A CLOTHESLINE, BUT JAKE DUCKS UNDERNEATH, CATCHING HIS ARM AND LOOKING FOR ANOTHER ‘PROPHETIC’ ON DONOVAN THIS TIME. DONOVAN TWISTS HIS ARM OUT, PULLING HIM IN AND KNOCKING HIM OUT WITH A DISCUS VARIATION OF ‘DEALER’S CHOICE’!!! A SPINNING BACK FIST TAKES OUT HIS FORMER INSURGENCE PARTNER!!!!!!…..
Eve: AMIR FROM THE TOP OUT OF NOWHERE WITH A DIVING HURRICANRANA SENDING DONOVAN DOWN TO THE OUTSIDE RIGHT AFTER TAKING OUT JAKE!!!!!!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: Wow. Everybody is out, and now it’s back to between Alex Myers and Amir Yusuf once again. Both competitors get back to their feet, and Amir starts running, looking to send Alex right back down to the ground with a running attac-
Gavin Kirkland: A SPANISH FLY CATCHES AMIR OFF GUARD! ALEX TAKES OUT AMIR ALL OF A SUDDEN ONCE AGAIN AND NOW THEY GO FOR A COVER!
Gavin Kirkland: AMIR YUSUF KICKS OUT!
Eve: Amir is still down from a sudden Spanish Fly by Alex Myers, but Alex is looking to end this match earlier! Alex heads all the way up to the top while everybody is trying to regroup on the outside of the ring. Jake goes to fight with Adam on the outside, and Donovan tries to help, but Impact stops him and starts a fight with Donovan down there instead!… Is this not what I think- :lupe:
Deadprez: OHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!! A ROTATING 360 FROG SPLASH TAKES EVERYBODY ON THE OUTSIDE TAKES EVERYBODY OUT! JAKE IS DOWN! ADAM IS DOWN! IMPACT IS DOWN! DONOVAN IS DOWN! EVERYONE IS DOWN, ALL THANKS TO ALEX MYERS!!!!!!!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: Alex is going crazy right now, and I’m sure it’s hard to stop them at this moment. They are on a roll, and nothing is going to get in their way right now!- LOOK OUT ALEX!!!
Eve: AMIR BLINDFOLDS ALEX WITH A KICK TO THE BACK OF THEIR HEAD! Amir takes a fired-up Alex Myers down quickly with a sneak attack, and now he’s picking him up before throwing him back inside the ring. Alex holds his head down and remains on the ground as Amir pops up to the apron and starts clutching the top rope.….
Gavin Kirkland: SPRINGBOARD 450 SPLASH LANDS ON ALEX’S BACK!
Deadprez: Alex moves out of their way just in time but is still having a difficult time regaining their footing because of the kick that just connected to the back of their head from Amir. Alex tries to reach both feet as soon as possible with Amir rolling back to their feet, charging at Alex before grabbing them, looking for ‘When Reality Hits’ right here in the Rolling Cutter position!
Eve: Alex tries to use their right knee to strike Amir’s face, which works before jumping over to be upon Amir’s right shoulder….. POPPING THEMSELVES OFF AMIR’S SHOULDER AND SPIKING HIM TO THE MAT WITH A JUMPING DDT! AMIR IS DOWN!
Gavin Kirkland: Jake Smith rolls back into the ring, being the first one to recover. He stands at the corner and waits for Alex to turn their attention back to him…. A SHINING WIZARD BY THE ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION!
Eve: ALEX CATCHES HIM AND POPS HIM UP ON THEIR SHOULDERS… DEATH VALLEY DRIVER TAKES OUT JAKE SMITH JUST IN TIME! HERE COMES IMPACT THIS TIME AND LOOKS TO BE THE ONE WHO MANAGES TO TAKE DOWN ALEX ON HIS OWN. ALEX TURNS TO IMPACT AND HE GOES FOR ‘EVISCERATION’, WHICH ISN’T LOOKING VERY GOOD FOR ALEX MYERS!
Deadprez: BOOM! ADAM FLIES OFF THE THIRD ROPE AND CONNECTS IMPACT WITH A SPRINGBOARD FOREARM SMASH, STOPPING HIM FROM THE ATTACK! Alex quickly signals for Adam to pick Impact back to his feet as soon as possible. Adam picks him up and quickly throws him to Alex….

BOUNCING OFF THE ROPES AND TAKING BOTH MEN DOWN IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING WITH A DOUBLE SPEAR!
Gavin Kirkland: Donovan is now all alone and he notices that Alex is still out cold from the double superkick. Donovan grabs Alex and pulls his teammate down to the corner of his team before going behind the ropes….
( TAG! )
Eve: The tag is made and Amir, who is still a legal man of the opposite team, is still trying to recover but Donovan is already miles ahead, taking him all the way up to the top corner…. A DIVING MOONSAULT FORCES AMIR TO STAY DOWN! AMIR IS KNOCKED OUT COLD BY A DIVING MOONSAULT AND NOW DONOVAN IS GOING FOR A COVER!

Deadprez:It’s not going to be too soon for Impact because Jake is back and now grabs Alex from behind, trying to take his future challenger at Grand Rampage this year down with a roll and holding him tightly…. INTO A WHEELBARROW GERMAN SUPLEX BY JAKE SMITH- WAIT THE MINUTE, ALEX LANDS ON THEIR FEET!
Eve: Jake doesn’t even have time to catch up and tries to get back to his feet as soon as possible. Jake reaches both feet and looks for a soccer kick to take down Alex this time… ALEX WITH A DROPKICK TAKING JAKE DOWN JUST IN TIME!

Gavin Kirkland: Impact is down and Adam takes a curious look at him for a little while. Impact starts rolling down to the outside of the ring, but I wonder what’s in Adam’s mind right here…. ADAM FOLLOWS DOWN TO THE OUTSIDE, NOW GRABBING IMPACT BEFORE SENDING HIM RIGHT INTO THE BARRICADE! I DON’T THINK ADAM WOULD LOVE TO LET IMPACT GET AWAY LIKE THAT!
Deadprez: IT SEEMS TO BE RIGHT BECAUSE NOW, ADAM IS OUTRAGED WITH IMPACT! IMPACT TRIES TO FIGHT BACK BEFORE PUSHING ADAM AWAY, CAUSING THE BACK OF HIS HEAD TO CRASH INTO THE RING POST RIGHT BEHIND HIM! IMPACT RUNS IN, BUT ADAM DUCKS UNDER, LETTING IMPACT DRIVE HIMSELF INTO THE POST INSTEAD! BOTH SIDES ARE GETTING HURT BY THE RING POST!

Amir quickly comes back to his feet, and now he starts picking up Donovan. Donovan isn’t even fully recovered, but Amir doesn’t seem to care, and he’s going to end it all right here!
Gavin Kirkland: Fights are still going on outside of the ring. Impact grabs Adam before slamming his face right into the commentary table. Jake and Alex are still fighting each other in the crowd’s area. Jake tries to toss the Guardian Angel into the crowd around here! Alex pulls a break and drives a right knee into the face of Jake Smith!
Deadprez: Jake falls back away from Alex, and Alex quickly runs up the stairs in the crowd area while Jake is trying to compose himself after taking a right knee…..
