(“Glory” by The Score hits as the camera cuts to a jam packed arena as red pyro blasts from the stage and titantron before the camera immediately cuts to the ring.)

Stephie Love: The following is a Fatal Four Way match scheduled for one fall! And the winner will become the #1 Contender to the Answers World Championship!

(“Psyched Out” by The Supersuckers hits as Ryan Wilson steps from behind the curtain and makes his way to the ring)

Stephie Love: Approaching the ring first, from Montreal, Quebec, Canada… weighing in at 200 pounds… RYAAANNNN WIIILLLSSSSOOONNN!!

Stew: And what a way to start Revolution! Fatal Four Way matches are always special and so, so chaotic! And with stakes like this?! Oh it’s gonna be great!

(“Young and Bitter” by Hot Tag Media hits as Lucas Johnson makes his way to the ring)

Stephie Love: From Atlanta, Georgia… weighing in at 205 pounds… LUCCCASSSSS JOOOHHHNNNNSSSOOONN!!

Bari: And think about the four competitors in this match, they’ve never been world champion… quite frankly they’ve never even sniffed a world championship! This is SUCH a big moment for them!

(“DUST” by Tremonti hits as Kevin Hunter approaches the stage. He confidently makes his way down the ramp and towards the ring)

Stephie Love: From Brooklyn, New York… weighing in at 235 pounds… KEEVVVIINNNN HUUNNNTTEEERRR!!

Stew: Indeed Bari, there’s already enough pressure on these guys but this really could be a career making match! IT COULD ALL START RIGHT HERE AT REVOLUTION!!

(“Timebomb” by Blackfoot and Rancid hits as the lights dim and Shaker Jones strolls down to the ring with a grin on his face)

Stephie Love: And from Inglis, Manitoba, Canada… weighing in at 250 pounds… SHAKKKKERRRRRR JOOOONNNNNEEESSS!!

Bari: It’s such a diverse field, four different men, each with their own unique style… I can’t call it!

(DING! DING! DING!)

Stew: THE BELL SOUNDS AND HERE WE GO!! THE OPPORTUNITY OF A LIFETIME AWAITS ONE OF THESE FOUR MEN, AND THEY’RE NOT WASTING ANY TIME!! THEY SPLIT INTO PAIRS!! LUCAS JOHNSON AND RYAN WILSON BEGIN TRADING BLOWS IN ONE CORNER AS THE BIGGER MEN, KEVIN HUNTER AND SHAKER JONES MATCH UP IN ANOTHER!! JOHNSON HAS WILSON UP AGAINST THE TURNBUCKLE HE LOOKS BACK AT THE OPPOSITE CORNER WHERE HE MEETS EYES WITH KEVIN HUNTER, THEY BOTH GIVE A NOD… WHAT’S HAPPENING HERE?! OH! HUNTER WHIPS JONES… JOHNSON WHIPS WILSON… INTO THE MIDDLE OF THE RING WHERE THEY COLL– NO!! WILSON WITH A ROLL UP ON JONES!!

ONEEE!!… TWOOO!!… HUNTER AND JOHNSON LEAP ON TOP TO BREAK UP THE PIN FALL BUT JONES KICKS OUT ANYWAY!!

Bari: An impressive move that was by Ryan Wilson who gets back to his feet, a bit of a smirk on his face! All four men once again stand in the center of the ring, eyes darting… who’s gonna make the first move?! IT’S JONES!! FIRING A KICK INTO THE MID-SECTION OF WILSON… NOW GRABBING HIM BY THE BACK OF THE HEAD AND TOSSING HIM OUT OF THE RING!! Wilson hits the outside mat hard and at least for the moment, we’re down to three men inside the ring!

Stew: And this is the strategy you want to implore in a match like this! Narrow the field down when you can, anyway you can… the less people you have to deal with, the better! Shaker Jones continues on the offensive here, throwing a cheap right hand in the direction of Lucas Johnson that catches him in the jaw… Lucas Johnson fires back with one of his own, and the two men start to exchange blows as Kevin Hunter looks on! OH NO… I SPOKE TOO SOON, HERE COMES KEVIN HUNTER CHARGING… WITH A HIGH KNEE THAT CATCHES SHAKER JONES RIGHT IN THE BACK OF THE HEAD, LAYING HIM OUT!! MY GOD THE SAVAGERY!!

Bari: When you see an opportunity, you TAKE it! And now look Stew… one man out on the outside, one man down on the inside… it’s just Lucas Johnson and Kevin Hunter! Hunter with a considerable size advantage but Lucas Johnson hoping to thwart that with his speed! He slides around to the back of Hunter and kicks him STRAIGHT in the back of the knee to bring him down… AND NOW JOHNSON REBOUNDING OFF THE ROPES… RUSHING FORWARD WITH A BIG CLOTHESLINE, CLOCKING HUNTER!! Johnson’s own momentum took him off his feet… he gets back up and turns around… BUT THERE’S RYAN WILSON OFF THE TOP ROPE, LEAPING OFF WITH A CROSSBODY AND CONNECTING ONTO LUCAS JOHNSON!!

Stew: AND SUDDENLY RYAN WILSON FINDS HIMSELF AS THE ONLY MAN STANDING, AND HE’S LOOKING TO KEEP IT THAT WAY AS HE QUICKLY MAKES HIS WAY OVER TO SHAKER JONES… STOMPING HIM ACROSS THE BACK A FEW TIMES… NOW DOING THE SAME TO LUCAS JOHNSON WHO WAS ATTEMPTING TO MAKE IT BACK TO HIS FEET AFTER THE CROSSBODY… HE TURNS HIS ATTENTION TOWARDS KEVIN HUNTER AND DARTS TOWARDS HIM… BUT HE’S CAUGHT!! CAUGHT BY KEVIN HUNTER WHO SLAMS HIM DOWN INTO THE CANVAS WITH A SIDEWALK SLAM!! PUTTING AN END TO THE OFFENSIVE BURST BY RYAN WILSON!!

Bari: And I know we keep mentioning it Stew, but it’s for good reason! These four men are a pinfall or submission away from a one on one match for the Answers World Championship! And now we’re starting to see these gameplans being initiated, it’s all a matter of who can stay afloat and not crack under the pressure! Kevin Hunter begins pacing around the ring as Lucas Johnson gets to his feet. Hunter lifts his knee and sends it into the gut of Lucas Johnson… Johnson bends forward… HUNTER NOW GOING FOR A GUTWRENCH LIFT ON JOHNSON BUT JOHNSON SENDS A FEW ELBOWS INTO HUNTER’S OWN GUT… PRYING HIM AWAY!! OH BUT NOW LOOK OUT HERE… SHAKER JONES COMES CHARGING… WITH A BOOT RIGHT TO THE SIDE OF HUNTER’S FACE, TWIRLING AS HE COLLAPSES DOWN TO THE CANVAS!!

Stew: OH WHAT A BOOT THAT WAS BY SHAKER JONES… AND HE’S NOT FINISHED… MEASURING LUCAS JOHNSON UP… AND TAKING HIM DOWN AS WELL WITH A BIG BOOT!! AND NOW RYAN WILSON… ON THE FAR SIDE OF THE RING, SHAKER JONES GETS A SINISTER LOOK IN HIS FACE!!… AND NOW SPRINTING ACROSS THE RING… RIGHT TOWARDS RYAN WILSON… AND BAM!! CONNECTING!! Shaker Jones has taken control of this match but Kevin Hunter beginning to stir, beginning to make it back to a vertical base! Jones makes his way over towards him… BUT HUNTER!! KEVIN HUNTER FROM A THREE POINT STANCE BURSTS TOWARDS SHAKER JONES AND SPEARS HIM INTO THE CORNER!!

Bari: JONES HITS HARD SPINE FIRST!! AND KEVIN HUNTER FOLLOWS IT UP WITH A FEW SHOULDER THRUSTS!! And now Kevin Hunter… LOOKING FOR SOMETHING BIG HERE!! He digs his head underneath the arm of Shaker Jones and props him on the top turnbuckle… AND NOW BEGINS TO CLIMB HIMSELF!! LOOKING FOR A SUPERPLEX PERHAPS!! HE HOOKS SHAKER’S ARM OVER HIS HEAD… OH BUT LOOK OUT!! IT’S LUCAS JOHNSON!! LUCAS JOHNSON POSITIONING HIMSELF UNDER KEVIN HUNTER… IN A POWERBOMB CLUTCH!! BUT DOES LUCAS JOHNSON HAVE ENOUGH POWER AND STRENGTH IN HIM TO PULL THE TWO BIGGER MEN OFF THE TOP ROPE?!

Stew: MAYBE NOT ON HIS OWN BUT HERE COMES RYAN WILSON WITH THE ASSIST!! HE GRABS THE RIGHT LEG OF KEVIN HUNTER… AND BOTH MEN TOGETHER ARE ABLE TO PULL THEM DOWN!! A HUGE TOWER OF DOOM!! TAKING BOTH HUNTER AND JONES OUT!! OH BUT LOOK OUT!! LUCAS JOHNSON FROM BEHIND THROWING RYAN WILSON OUT OF THE RING… AND NOW HE THROWS HIMSELF ON TOP OF SHAKER JONES… LOOKING FOR THE VICTORY!!

ONEEE!!… TWOOO!!… BUT NO!! A KICK OUT FROM SHAKER JONES!!

BUT NOW HE’S GONNA TRY ON KEVIN HUNTER!!

ONEEE!!… TWOOO!!… NO!! HUNTER MANAGES TO KICK OUT AS WELL!!

Bari: Lucas Johnson sits up in frustration, pounding his fist into the canvas. He makes it back to his feet and it’s important that he not let his frustration get the best of him! He was unable to get the victory but he still finds himself in a prime spot, the only one from the field on his feet… he has the pick of the litter! He chooses Kevin Hunter… lifting him to his feet an unloading with a quick knife edge chop… a second, a third! Lightning quick, lighting up the chest of Hunter!… AND NOW A SLAP… A HARD FIVE STAR SLAP ACROSS THE RAW CHEST OF KEVIN HUNTER, HUNTER BENDS FORWARD, WAILING IN PAIN… MUCH TO THE DELIGHT OF LUCAS JOHNSON WHO FOLLOWS IT UP WITH AN UPPERCUT, FLUSH THAT TAKES KEVIN HUNTER DOWN!!

Stew: Lucas Johnson… pleased with himself…BUT FROM BEHIND… OR MAYBE A BETTER WORD WOULD BE, FROM ABOVE… RYAN WILSON TAKES OUT LUCAS JOHNSON WITH A TOP ROPE BULLDOG!! THAT’S THE SECOND TIME RYAN WILSON HAS RE-ENTERED THIS MATCH VIA HIGH RISK MANEUVER AND BOTH TIMES HAVE PAID OFF BUT YOU HAVE TO IMAGINE THAT HIS LUCK ON THAT FRONT IS RUNNING OUT!! And now Wilson finds himself in a similar situation to the one he was in earlier… SHAKER JONES IS TO HIS FEET BUT… HE DOESN’T STAY ON THEM FOR LONG AS WILSON TAKES HIM OUT… AND NOW… OH!! TRYING TO APPLY THE FOURTH WALL BREAK!! CAN WILSON MANAGE TO TURN JONES ONTO HIS STOMACH?! IF HE CAN, WE’RE GONNA BE IN BUSINESS HERE!!

Bari: JONES IS TRYING TO FIGHT… TRYING TO FIGHT IT… TRYING TO PUSH WILSON OFF OF HIM, BUT WILSON… HE CAN SEE THE OPPORTUNITY, HE CAN DAMN NEAR TASTE VICTORY… AND THROUGH THAT WILL HE’S ABLE TO TURN JONES ONTO HIS STOMACH… APPLYING THE FOURTH WALL BREAK!! BUT ONLY FOR A SECOND AS KEVIN WILSON COMES IN AND QUICKLY BREAKS IT UP!! And you can see there… the camera getting a GREAT shot of the agony on Ryan Wilson’s face, that’s why fatal four way matches are so cruel! BUT HE’S NOT GONNA HAVE MUCH TIME TO WALLOW IN HIS SORROWS AS KEVIN HUNTER QUICKLY GETS HIM BACK TO HIS FEET AND TOSSING HIM OVER HIS SHOULDERS!!

Stew: KEVIN HUNTER… GOING FOR THE KILLER EFFECT!! AND… THE FIRST PART CONNECTS!! DROPPING WILSON OVER HIS KNEE… NOW HOOKING HIM… AND YES!! IT CONNECTS!! KEVIN HUNTER WITH THE KILLER EFFECT!! HE ROLLS WILSON ONTO HIS BACK AND HOOKS THE LEG!!

ONEEE!!… TWOOO!!… NO!! OH!!

Bari: SHAKER JONES BREAKING THE PINFALL UP WITH GIVE EM THE BOOT!! STRAIGHT INTO THE FACE OF KEVIN HUNTER!! HE PULLS HUNTER INTO THE MIDDLE OF THE RING… HOOKING THE LEG!!

ONEEE!!… TWOOO!!… OH BUT LUCAS JOHNSON IS IN!!

Stew: APPLYING THE FULL NELSON ON SHAKER JONES… PULLING HIM UP TO HIS FEET… AND NOW BACK DOWN WITH THE SKULL CRUSHING FINALE!! INTO THE PIN!! HAS HE DONE IT?! IS LUCAS JOHNSON THE #1 CONTENDER TO THE ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP?!

ONEEEE!!… TWOOO!!… NO!! SHAKER JONES POWERS HIS SHOULDER UP!!

Bari: WOW WHAT A SEQUENCE!!

Stew: All four men are down, Lucas Johnson crawls himself into the corner, that’s twice in this match now where he thought he had the match won but it just wasn’t to be! We keep on fighting! Lucas Johnson is up… LOOKING TO TARGET SHAKER JONES AGAIN, STALKING HIM FROM THE CORNER AS JONES ATTEMPTS TO MAKE IT BACK TO HIS FEET… HE COMES CHARGING… LOOKING FOR A SHINING WIZARD… BUT IT’S SIDESTEPPED!! SHAKER JONES ABLE TO SIDESTEP THE ATTACK… BUT LUCAS JOHNSON CONNECTS WITH KEVIN HUNTER!! YET ANOTHER KICK DELIVERED STRAIGHT TO HIS FACE, I’D BE SURPRISED IF HE DIDN’T HAVE A BROKEN NOSE AT THIS POINT!!

Bari: BUT NOW SHAKER JONES FROM BEHIND… SPINNING LUCAS JOHNSON AROUND… LEAPING UP FOR THE ’87… BUT NO!! HE’S PUSHED OFF!! JONES STUMBLES BACK TO HIS FEET!! LUCAS JOHNSON LEAPS UP FOR A CUTTER OF HIS OWN… FEEL THE PAIN!! BUT NO!! JONES THIS TIME PUSHES JOHNSON OFF HIM!! BOTH MEN ARE TO THEIR FEET… A BIT OF A STANDOFF… AND HERE COMES RYAN WILSON NOW!! CHARGING TOWARDS BOTH MEN… BUT BOTH MEN SEEMING TO HAVE THE SAME IDEA HERE AS THEY DUCK THEIR HEADS AND SEND RYAN WILSON OVER WITH A BACK BODY DROP!!

Stew: WAIT NO!! OH MY!! RYAN WILSON LANDED ON THE TOP ROPE!! RYAN WILSON LANDED ON THE TOP ROPE AND NOW SPRINGBOARDS OFF IT WITH A MOONSAULT!!… HE GRABS THE HEADS OF BOTH MEN AND PLANTS THEM INTO THE CANVAS!! A MOONSAULT INTO A DOUBLE INVERTED DDT!! HOW IMPRESSIVE WAS THAT?! AND NOW RYAN WILSON LOOKS TO FOLLOW IT UP, COVERING ONE OF THE MEN… AND IT LOOKS LIKE HE’S CHOSEN LUCAS JOHNSON!!

ONEEE!!… TWOOO!!… A KICK OUT!! LUCAS JOHNSON GETS THE SHOULDER UP!!

Bari: OH MAN!! LUCAS JOHNSON WITH THE KICK OUT, RYAN WILSON THINKS ABOUT TRYING SHAKER JONES BUT INSTEAD BURIES HIS FACE INTO THE MAT… THIS HAS BEEN A HIGH OCTANE THRILL RIDE FROM THE JUMP BUT THE ACTION HAS REALLLLY PICKED UP IN THE PAST COUPLE OF MINUTES!! RYAN WILSON IS TO HIS FEET AND THE ONLY OTHER MAN SHOWING ANY SIGN OF LIFE AT THE MINUTE IS KEVIN HUNTER!! HUNTER IS USING THE ROPES TO PULL HIMSELF TO HIS FEET, BLOOD POURING OUT OF HIS NOSE!!… WILSON’S EYES LIGHT UP AT THE SIGHT… HE RUSHES FORWARD WITH A FOREARM… AND IT CONNECTS!! RIGHT TO THE NOSE!! KEVIN HUNTER FALLS BACK INTO THE CORNER… OH BUT FROM BEHIND RYAN WILSON!! SHAKER JONES!! HE RUNS FORWARD… LEAPING WITH THE ’87 AND THIS TIME IT CONNECTS!! IT CONNECTS ON RYAN WILSON!!

Stew: BUT BEFORE HE COULD CAPITALIZE… KEVIN HUNTER IS BACK IN THE MIX!! HE SPINS SHAKER JONES AROUND… BURIED ALIVE!! IT CONNECTS!! HE ROLLS JONES OVER, HOOKS BOTH LEGS!! RYAN WILSON IS DOWN!! LUCAS JOHNSON IS BEGINNING TO STIR… BUT WILL HE BE ABLE TO MAKE IT IN TIME?! THE REFEREE SLIDES INTO POSITION!!

ONEEE!!… TWOOO!!… LUCAS JOHNSON ISN’T GOING TO MAKE IT!! THREEEE!! KEVIN HUNTER IS THE #1 CONTENDER TO THE ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP!!

(DING! DING! DING!)

(“DUST” begins to play as Kevin Hunter rolls off of Shaker Jones and makes it to his feet. He doesn’t celebrate his victory much. Instead electing to roll out of the ring and looking at his fallen opponents in the ring. He wipes blood off his face and begins to head up the ramp)

Stephie Love: Your winner… KEEEVVVINNNN HUUNNNTTEEERRRR!!

Stew: WHAT A GREAT WAY TO START REVOLUTION… AND CONGRATULATIONS TO KEVIN HUNTER, THE NEW #1 CONTENDER!!

Bari: DON’T SELL THE MOMENT SO SHORT STEW… THIS IS HUGE FOR KEVIN HUNTER!! WE MADE SUCH A BIG DEAL OF IT AT THE START, THE OPPORTUNITY OF A LIFETIME!!

(The camera cuts back to the announcers table as Kevin Hunter continues to celebrate in the ring.)

Stew: What an incredible victory for Kevin Hunter, but at this time we would like to thank a THE SCORE for their single “Glory” which is our official theme tonight! Get their new album in stores!

(A video recap begins to play highlighting the short history between Andrei Sokolova and Theron Nikolas; it starts with Andrei’s beginning in REVOLT, showing a picture of him with his contract in hand as a picture is taken with Ronn Banks. The video highlights Andrei winning the REVOLT! Heavyweight Championship before cutting to Theron defeating Ronn at Pain for Pride with the help of Mr. DEDEDE. The video highlights Theron being interrupted by Andrei as he was about to announce his official cash in date for his King of Elite crown, Theron costing Andrei the chance to move onto the No. 1 contendership match, Starr Stan announcing Theron vs Andrei for Revolution and Theron promising that what will happen to Andrei at Revolution fall onto Starr’s shoulders, not his.)

Stephie Love: Ladies and Gentlemen, this next match is scheduled for ONE FALL!!…

(“Your Kingdom” by VITJA hits as the lights throughout the arena cut to black, only leaving a single spotlight shining down in the middle of the stage. Andrei Sokolova slowly walks out of the darkness and into the spotlight as the crowd ROARS with cheers.)

Stephie Love: Introducting first residing from Doncaster, England, weighing in tonight at TWO HUNDRED AND FORTY POUNDS!!!… HE IS THE “AGENT OF CHAOS!!!!!”… ANDREI!!!! SOOOKKKOOOLLOOVVVAAAA!!!!!

Stew: Oh, boy! If you’re looking for a match that may potentially go down as the best of the night – you may have just hit the jackpot!

Talib: Two performers that are looking to try to cement their place at the top of the others; you combine that with the pure hatred these two men have for each other and you have two combustible elements that are bound to explode!

(Andrei enters the ring as the crowd chant his name; he pays no attention to the reaction he’s receiving, instead sitting cross legged in the corner with the eyes staring up at the stage waiting for Theron to make his arrival. “Legendary” by Tupac hits as the thousands in attendance explode with a chorus of boos. Theron Nikolas makes his way slowly through the curtain with the King of Elite crown grasped tightly in his right hand. He pays no attention to the reaction he’s getting in the slightest as he makes his way down to the ring.)

Stephie Love: Introducing his opponent from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, weighing in tonight at TWO HUNDRED AND TEN POUNDS!!!.. HE IS THE 2018 KING OF ELITE!!!!! THERON!!!!! NIIIIIKKKOOLLLLAAASSS!!!!!!!

Stew: You have to wonder about how big tonight is for Theron Nikolas. We can only assume that Theron was moments away from announcing when he is going to cash in his King of Elite crown, only to be interrupted by Andrei Sokolova.

Talib: Tonight would be huge for the King of Elite. I would hate to imagine what would happen if Theron were to lose this week. Theron promised victory; he promised to hurt Andrei Sokolova. I don’t know how this one is going to go, but I can’t wait to find out.

(Theron enters the ring and hands his crown to Stephie Love who quickly leaves the ring. Andrei reaches up and grabs onto the top ropes, pulling himself up to his feet as the referee calls for the bell.)

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Stew: The bell rings and this contest between the King of Elite and the former REVOLT Heavyweight Champion; the FIRST and ONLY might I add, is officially underway! Both men standing in their respective corners; with everything that has happened between these two leading into this event has to reach its boiling point. These two are about to explode. Both men stepping forward and lock up with a collar and elbow tie up. Theron gaining control with a side headlock and quickly transitions behind Andrei locking the waist. Theron looking to take Andrei down to the canvas, but Andrei uses that power advantage to break the grip of Theron and complete the standing switch! Andrei driving Theron forward into the ropes, but Theron latches onto the top rope and the momentum sends Andrei rolling back – SUPERKICK! Theron firing with a superkick – but, Andrei catches the boot! Andrei fires with a kick to the hamstring, before swinging Theron around AND FIRES WITH A SPINNING BACK ELBOW THAT CONNECTS FLUSH TO THE SIDE OF THE HEAD! Theron is stunned and Andrei looks to maintain pressure. Theron stumbles back into the corner and Andrei fires with a STIFF chop to the chest! The sound of that chop echoing around the arena! Andrei fires with another one! Theron clutching at his chest as he walks forward; Andrei grabs him by the arm and sends him across the ring and crashing into the corner! RUNNING ELBOW! Andrei cracks him on the jaw again!

Talib: Andrei taken full control in the opening moments of this contest! Theron stumbling out of the corner and Andrei fires with a European Uppercut before powering Theron up onto his shoulders into a fireman’s carry position. Theron needs to start fighting out of this – and he does! Theron with an elbow! Theron fires with a second! Theron able to slide off the shoulders of Andrei and behind the former REVOLT Heavyweight Champion! Theron locks the waist – BUT ANDREI SHUTS HIM DOWN WITH A WICKED ELBOW OF HIS OWN! Theron drops down to a knee and Andrei shoots forward into the ropes AND REBOUNDS BACK – STRAIGHT INTO A STANDING BICYCLE KICK FROM THE KING OF ELITE! Andrei remains standing, but is dazed! Theron scoops him up onto his shoulders – USHIGOROSHI! ANDREI LANDS ON HIS FEET AND FIRES BACK WITH A WILD ROUNDHOUSE KICK! THERON DUCKS – BACKSTABBER! DOUBLE KNEES TO THE BACK OF ANDREI SOKOLOVA! Andrei’s spins jarring in pain as Theron gets back to his feet and begins to stalk like a shark that smells blood. Andrei grabbing at his back as he pushes his way up to his hands and knees – but Theron cuts him off with a knee to the side of the ribs! Theron forcing Andrei back down to the canvas and drives his knee into the side of the ribs of Andrei again! Theron driving all the air out of the lungs of the former REVOLT Heavyweight Champion! Theron getting back to his feet, but Andrei is already defiantly pushing himself back up. Theron pushing his boot into the side of the face of Andrei and pushes him back down!

Stew: Theron asserting his authority after shutting down that opening flurry of offense from Andrei Sokolova! Theron stands over the downed Andrei Sokolova and locks the waist! THERON LOOKING TO POWER ANDREI UP AND OVER WITH A DEADLIFT CANADIAN SUPLEX! THERON WHIPS HIM OVERHEAD – BUT WOW! ANDREI LANDS ON HIS FEET! Andrei stumbles back into the ropes and Theron shoots forward – BUT ANDREI SIDESTEPS AND SENDS THERON OVER THE TOP ROPE AND THE KING OF ELITE CRASHES TO THE OUTSIDE!! THERON HITS THE FLOOR, BUT HE SCRAMBLES BACK UP TO HIS FEET – LOOK OUT!!! ANDREI FLYING OVER THE TOP ROPE AND TAKES OUT THERON NIKOLAS WITH A TOPE CON HILO!!! THE TWO HUNDRED AND FORTY POUNDER SOARING THROUGH THE AIR LIKE A CRUISERWEIGHT!!! Andrei shooting up to his feet and he rolls Theron back into the ring; Andrei shoots back up onto the apron and back into the ring – SUPERKICK!!! THERON CATCHES HIM WITH A HUGE KICK TO THE SIDE OF THE HEAD!!! ANDREI FALLING BACK THROUGH THE ROPES AND DOWN TO THE CANVAS AS THERON SHOOTS INTO THE COVER!!!!

ONE!!!!… TWO!!!!… KICKOUT!!!!

Stew: ANDREI POWERS OUT AFTER TWO!!!

Talib: What a shot from the King of Elite! Theron pushes himself up, trying to shake out the cobwebs; he’s still feeling the effects of that tope con hilo! Theron calling Andrei back to his feet; he still has full intention of punishing the man! Andrei crawling across to the corner, dragging himself back to his feet – AND THERON MEETS HIM WITH A RUNNING DROPKICK!!! BOTH FEET DRIVEN INTO THE FACE OF ANDREI SOKOLOVA!!! ANDREI LATCHING ONTO THE TOP ROPE, POSSIBLY THE ONLY THING STOPPING HIM FROM DROPPING DOWN TO THE CANVAS!!! THERON DRAGS HIM OUT OF THE CORNER AND SCOOPS HIM UP AND OVER THE SHOULDER!!! AIR RAID CRASH NECKBREAKER!!! Theron getting back to his feet and calls for the end! Boy, this kid just gets better everytime we see him!

Talib: THERON KICKS OUT!!!

Stew: An absolutely brilliant move from Andrei Sokolova! Andrei pushing himself back to his feet as Theron gingerly pushes himself back up to his hand and knees.

Talib: BOTH MEN PULLING OUT ALL THE STOPS, BUT THAT LIGER BOMB IS NOT ENOUGH!!!

Stew: Andrei just laying back; both men are down. Exhaustion has to be beginning to set in; neither man has pulled any punches from the opening bell. These people are on their feet; they’re firmly behind the first and only REVOLT Heavyweight Champion! Both men pushing themselves back to their feet! Andrei looks to be about a step ahead of Theron!

(“Legendary” by Tupac blasts through the speakers as Theron Nikolas pushes himself back to his feet standing over the fallen Andrei Sokolova.)

Stephie Love: THE WINNER OF THIS MATCH… THERON NIIIIIKKKOOOLLLLLAAAASSSS!!!!

Talib: What a match, Stew! Two of Dynasty’s best pushing themselves to their absolute limit to prove who is better than the other, and Theron Nikolas proved exactly that! There was no controversy involved; the One Percent nowhere to be seen! If their success in this match is anything to go by, we may have a new Answers World Champion at the end of the night!

Stew: You can’t take anything away from either man, but credit to the King of Elite. I just wish that all of his matches went like this without either Ripley or DDD getting involved.

(Theron leaves the ring and makes his way to the bottom of the ramp before looking back over his shoulder. Theron turns back towards the ring and looks under the ring, pulling out a steel chair.)

Stew: The match is over, Theron!

(Theron slides back into the ring as Andrei pushes himself back up to his feet.)

Stew: ANDREI IS ALMOST DEFENSELESS – AND THERON SMASHES THAT STEEL CHAIR INTO THE SIDE OF THE LEG OF ANDREI SOKOLOVA!!! ANDREI DROPS CLUTCHES AT HIS LEG AND THERON FIRES WITH ANOTHER SHOT!!! ANOTHER!!! ANOTHER!!! THERON WILL NOT RELENT!!! ANDREI SCREAMING IN AGONY AS THERON OPENS UP THE AIR AND PLACES IT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING!!! THERON DRAGGING ANDREI BACK UP; ANDREI CAN’T PLACE ANY PRESSURE ON THAT LEG!!! THERON PULL HIM IN – AND DRIVES HIM HEAD FIRST THAT STEEL CHAIR WITH THAT CHAOS THEORY!!!

Talib: MESSAGE SENT!!! THERON HAS NOT ONLY BEATEN ANDREI SOKOLOVA, BUT HAS TAKEN THE MAN OUT!!! HE PROMISED THAT WHAT HE DOES AT REVOLUTION FALLS ONTO THE SHOULDERS OF THE DYNASTY GENERAL MANAGER, AND THERON HAS KEPT IT TO THE WORD!! THE KING OF ELITE REIGNS SUPREME!!!

(“Legendary” picks back up as Theron leaves the ring and makes his way up the ramp; medical staff rush down to the ring as Andrei lays unmoved. Theron stands on the stage and looks back at his fallen foe before the cit’s back to the announcers table.)

Stew: But, let’s not let things slow down in the slightest now because it’s time for us to move onto our next contest. The HARDCORE CHAMPIONSHIP will be on the line as Johnny Ventura defends against Mark Michaels!

(A video begins to play highlighting the last few weeks between Ventura and Michaels. Michaels becoming the No. 1 Contender to Ventura’s championship. Ventura dropping Michaels with the GANDIVA. The sitdown interview between the two men, and Michaels costing Ventura a match against Ryan Wilson.)

(The lights go dark as random mix of music begins to play. The crowd rises to their feet as the music finally settles on the current Billboard #1 hit. “In My Feelings” by Drake begins to play and camera flashes start going off. Mark Michaels, the number one contender to the EAW Hardcore Championship steps through the curtain. The smile etched across his face just oozes arrogance and crowd greets him with a chorus of jeers and “YOU SUCK” chants. Michaels soaks it all up as a single spotlight illuminated his path down to the ring and if he’s sweating his title opportunity tonight he’s not showing it. The only thing that leads a person to believe that he’s taking this seriously is the fact there’s no hint of his cellphone. There are no ring apron selfies. Mark Michaels is ready for this match. The sweet sounds of GODrake fade out and are replaced by the theme music of the Hardcore Champion. “Clocks” by Phillip Klein begins to play dramatically. The building is shook because after a few moments, Ventura comes strolling out in all his dazzling glory. He has his championship draped across his right shoulder and in his left hand he holds an hourglass. As the camera zooms in, its plain as day that this hourglass has been decorated specifically for this match – it’s wrapped in beautiful barbed wire ❤️. Ventura allows himself to bask in the glory of his own entrance for a few seconds before shouting at the crowd.)

Ventura: “WHO IS NEXT?!”

Crowd: “MICH-AELS!”

(This man takes his time, almost as if he’s taunting Michaels by forcing him to wait. All week Mark Michaels has declared victory and let the world know that this was going to be his moment. Well if that’s to be the case when all is said and done, Ventura is certainly going to draw it out for as long as humanly possible. Once Ventura reaches the steel ring steps he smiles serenely at his hourglass and turns it over, purposely waiting as the sand begins to trickle down. He just stands there and this pisses Mark Michaels right off. The crowd is eating up this waiting game; it’s fantastic. It serves no other purpose than to annoy Mark Michaels. A minute or so passes before the sand finishes slipping through the hourglass. Then and only then does Ventura decide to enter the ring. At this point, Mark Michaels is just ready to body Ventura, but the referee somehow manages to maintain order. Stephie Love smiles beautifully.)

Stephie Love: “The following match is scheduled for one fall!”

Crowd: “One fall!”

Stephie Love: “And it’s for the Elite Answers Wrestling Hardcore Championship!!!! Standing the ring to my left is our challenger! From Beverly Hills, California….. PICTURE PERFECT MAAAAAAAARKKKKKKKK MIIIIIIIIIIICHAAAAAELSSSSSSS!”

(The crowd does not react very well. Mark Michaels doesn’t care. His eyes are locked on Ventura’s.)

Stephie Love: “And his opponent…. from the Heavens Above, he is our Hardcore Champion, THE CASTER OF DREAMS….. JOOOOOOOHNNNNYYYYYY VEEEEENNNNTUUUUUURAAAAAA!”

(Children cry. People scream. Women start to ovulate. Ventura simply hands his championship over to to the referee, who holds it up in the air.)

(DING! DING! DING!)

Stew: “Well we are finally underway after a bit of mind games on Ventura’s part. Michaels has spent the whole week accusing Ventura of making him wait so why not just delay this whole match by a few more moments?”
Talib: “It’s smart strategy on Ventura’s part because clearly he wants to get underneath Mark Michaels’ skin. He wants to irk this man and get him in unfamiliar territory. That’s how the champ is going to gain the advantage in this match and that’s how he plans to retain his championship.”

Stew: “Well this match is starting with your standard back and forth wrestling. Both guys are locked up and each are jockeying for positioning. Ventura gains the early advantage and forces Michaels back against the ropes. This is a hardcore match so there are no breaks. Ventura drives his knee into Michaels’ gut multiple times before grabbing him by the back of neck and driving him face first into the mat. Ventura is back to his knees and has Michaels trapped in a headlock. Michaels reaches out and realizes there’s nothing to grab onto so he grabs at Ventura’s arms to try and get the break. Ventura hangs on so Michaels does the next logical thing and drives his elbow into Ventura’s chest.”

Talib: “Ventura is forced to break the hold but he still doesn’t allow Mark Michaels back to his feet. He drives his knee square in Michaels back and jerks the other man’s arms back.”

Stew: “Michaels flattens his feet and attempts to power himself up, but Ventura continues to drive his knee into that sweet spot right between the shoulder blades. Michaels is trying to wiggle free but OH! Ventura with the headbutt to the back of Michaels head!!!”

Talib: “Ventura finally lets go and jerks Michaels up to his feet by the hair. He turns Michaels around…”

Stew: “BUT Michaels with a decisive right hand to Ventura’s jaw. The champ falls back against the ropes. Michaels swings again. Ventura ducks! He kicks Michaels in the stomach and throws him into the corner! He levels Michaels with precise strikes and kicks! He grabs him by the arm and looks to throw him into the opposite corner. Michaels plants his feet and attempts to reverse the whip…”

Talib: “Ventura is to strong! He plants Michaels down into the mat with a clothesline. Ventura scoops up Michaels and whips him into the ropes. Michaels comes flying back at Ventura! Ventura with the standing dropkick right to the face!”

Stew: “Michaels rolls out of the ring and drops down to the mat. He probably didn’t expect to start the match out like this. Ventura is down after him but Michaels quickly slides back in. Ventura is not going to fall for that. He’s not going to follow Michaels back in. Instead he drops down to his knees and lifts up the ring skirt.”

Talib: “Ventura withdraws a kendo stick and climbs back up onto the apron. Michaels gets a running start and goes flying at Ventura!”

CRAAAAAAAAAAACKKKKKK!

Stew: “Ventura slams the stick into the face of Mark Michaels and we have blood! It didn’t even take five minutes and Mark Michaels’ nose is busted right open. Ventura climbs back into the ring and twirls the kendo stick, literally stalking around a downed Mark Michaels. He’s allowing Mark to sit up and as Mark does, Ventura swings again!”

Talib: “Michaels falls to the side and rolls out of the way as Ventura again tries to hit him with the kendo stick. Michaels jerks Ventura’s feet out from underneath of him and is now all over the champ. He is raining blow after blow down on Ventura’s face and head, and that kendo stick as fallen from Ventura hands. Michaels grabs for it and immediately slams it down onto Ventura’s throat! He’s choking the crap out of him but somehow Ventura is still able to muscle Michaels off of him!”

Stew: “Ventura looks a little salty that Michaels tried to choke out, and makes a beeline for the challenger. Michaels swings wildly with that kendo stick! Ventura evades it! He gets the boot up! It connects with Michaels’ face!”

Talib: “Ventura knocks the kendo stick out of the way and looks towards the steel ring steps. He has a better weapon in mind!”

Stew: “Ventura grabs his barbed wire wrapped hourglass and stalks towards Mark Michaels. Michaels attempts to crawl out of the ring, but Ventura grabs him by the back of the tights and jerks him back in. He takes the hourglass and rakes it down the back of Mark Michaels, causing the social media phenom to cry out in agony. He literally just cut into the man’s back and now the blood pouring from those wounds is matching the blood from Michaels’ busted nose!”

Talib: “Ventura flips Michaels over and goes to do the same thing to Michael’s chest, but Michaels gets his hands up and kicks at Ventura. His kick barely stuns Ventura, but it does allow Michaels to start kicking at Ventura’s hand! He drops the hourglass and Michaels grabs it. Ventura lunges for his opponent, but Michaels quickly gets to his feet!”

SMAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAASHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!

Stew: “He slams the hourglass right into Ventura’s face! Ventura is busted open but Mark Michaels is not done! Over and over he beats Ventura, literally trying to incapacitate the Hardcore Champion!”

Talib: “Look! Michaels is getting up and rushing towards the ring steps! He reaches out and shatters that hourglass right on the steps. A wide grin spreads across Mark Michaels’ face he lets the sand from that hourglass pour into his hand!”

Stew: “Ventura is making his way over to Michaels but Michaels was waiting! He flings the sand in Ventura’s eyes, blinding the Caster of Dreams! Ventura is blind! He can’t see! Michaels takes the broken hourglass and slams it into Ventura’s bloody forehead, sending the champ to the mat! Whatever sand is left in that thing, Michaels is emptying into his hand!”

Talib: “I guess sand is just as good as salt in this match because he is rubbing it into the exposed wound on Ventura’s forehead! The champ is really suffering right now and Mark Michaels is unwrapping that barbed wire from around the broken pieces of the hourglass.”
Stew: “Michaels frees the strand of barbed wire and wraps it around his own fist. He begins mercilessly pounding away on Ventura, making sure he opens up that wound even further. Mark Michaels is not holding back whatsoever tonight and I don’t blame him! He has been mocked, ridiculed, and told he could not achieve greatness here in EAW. Tonight is his opportunity to prove all his doubters wrong!”

Talib: “Michaels finally backs off Ventura for just a moment and takes the time to unwrap his fist. With nothing but pure hate in his eyes, he begins to wrap that barbed wire about the head of Johnny Ventura. He gives the Caster of Dreams an actual crown and makes sure to dig those barbs into Ventura’s tattered skin! Michaels returns to a standing position!”

Stew: “I am truly amazed by what I’m seeing. Ventura’s face is an actual crimson mask right now because Mark Michaels is stomping away on the champ’s face. That barbed wire Michaels wrapped around Ventura’s head is doing the damage he wanted!”

Talib: “But if that’s the case, then why is Ventura smiling?! How can he possibly be enjoying this???”
Stew: “Michaels’ looks down and sees this and honestly he looks stunned. He’s shaking his head in disbelief because he doesn’t understand how anyone can be smiling right now. He jerks Ventura up to his feet and slams his fist into his face! Ventura fires back with one of his own and Michaels staggers back! These two guys are just punching each other right in the face!!! Ventura catches Michaels with a stiff uppercut and Michaels now finds himself backed against the ropes, and that gives Ventura the chance to wrap his hands around the throat of Mark Michaels and choke him!”

Talib: “Oh he’s going to do more than just choke the social media guru! Look! Ventura is headbutting Michaels!!!”

Stew: “Good God! He’s using his own head and that barbed wire crown as a destructive weapon right now. This has certainly backfired big time on Mark Michaels! TWO…. THREE…. FOUR …. FIVE …. SIX TIMES VENTURA HAS SLAMMED HIS SKULL INTO MARK MICHAELS!!!”

Talib: “Jesus Christ. The fact Ventura is now resting his forehead against Mark’s is just twisted. He’s just staring into the eyes of his enemy, almost as if he’s trying to suck the soul right out of Mark’s body. If it weren’t for the fact both of them are covered in their own blood and are trying to commit a murder, you would almost think this one of those fan fic type of moments that wrestling fans just seem to lust after.”

Stew: “…..right.”

Talib: “Is Ventura…”

Stew: “VENTURA IS DRAGGING HIS OWN CROWN OF THORNS ACROSS MARK MICHAELS’ FOREHEAD! Michaels is pouring more blood now and finally Ventura lets go of his throat!! He’s laughing at all this carnage he has caused and wow, just wow. What the heck is he going to do now?!”

Talib: “HE’S UNWRAPPED THE BARBED WIRE CROWN FROM AROUND HIS HEAD AND IS PUTTING IT AROUND HIS SHOE!!!!”

Stew: “Every single person in this building is urging Ventura on. Listen at these sickos cheer for this madness! They must be the type of people who get off on Googling accident pictures and dead bodies! Ventura is just kicking the crap out of Mark Michaels with his barbed wire wrapped boot and at the moment, Mark Michaels is defenseless!”

Talib: “Ventura seems satisfied with the damage done for the time being and unwraps the barbed wire. He heads over to the turnbuckle and begins to unlace that protective padding. He’s already killed Mark Michaels’ selfie game for the foreseeable future by turning the man’s forehead into raw hamburger meat so I’m not sure what he’s trying to do now.”

Stew: “Well he’s coiling that stupid crap around the exposed steel of the turnbuckle so who knows at this point?!”

Talib: “Well by some stroke of whatever higher power there might be, Mark Michaels still has some life left in him. He’s valiantly trying to pull himself over to the corner! He’s so close to making it but Ventura has turned around! His eyes are narrowing like a psychopath and he’s quick to rush over! That kendo stick Mark just managed to grab just got kicked from his hands!”
Stew: “Ventura pulls Michaels up by his blood soaked hair and flings him across the ring! Michaels’ back connects with steel and barbed wire, and now he eats a big boot to the face! Michaels slumps to the ground and Ventura is not done yet! Again he pulls Michaels up to his feet and presses him back against the turnbuckle! I can’t be sure what Ventura is saying…”

Talib: “It’s probably something in tongues…”

Stew: “But he swipes his hand across his own bloody forehead and chops Mark Michaels!!!”

Talib: “Again!!!! Those bloody chops are echoing throughout this building!!”

CHOP!!!
CHOP!!!!
CHOP!!!!!
CHOP!!!!!!
CHOP!!!!!!!
CHOP!!!!!!!!

Stew: “Michaels faceplants right into the mat and Ventura pulls him to the center of the ring for a cover!!!”

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEE
TTTTTTTTTWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Talib: “KICKOUT!!!”

Stew: “Wow! We stan a man who likes abuse!”

Talib: “……..”

Stew: “Why Mark Michaels kicked out of that is beyond me. He’s been murked in this match and Ventura seems to be living his best life right now.”

Talib: “Well this is for the Hardcore Championship! To hold any championship in Elite Answers Wrestling is prestigious and it puts you a level above everyone else! Mark Michaels has been working tirelessly in the gym and with his status updates to prove he belongs at that next level! The (Self Proclaimed) Social Media Champion wants that championship validation!”

Stew: “Well Ventura is out of the ring now and seems to be in search for something. He drops down and takes a peek under the ring…”

Talib: “He’s got a table!”

Stew: “….. that’s not just a table.”

Talib: “….. oh my god.”

Stew: “Please tell me…”

Talib (almost whispering): “It’s wrapped in explosives…”

Stew: “…..!!!!!!!!! Ventura slides the table into the ring and pulls out a bag as well!”

Talib: “I can’t wait to find out what’s in that bag because apparently the fact this table is laced with explosives isn’t enough…”

Stew: “Oh I’m sure it’s exactly what you think it is. Ventura gets the table set up in the center of the ring, conveniently over the half-dead body of Mark Michaels.”

Talib: “THUMBTACKS!!!! THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS OF THUMBTACKS!!!! Dude Ventura is just staring at this mess like it’s the most beautiful thing he’s ever seen in his life.”

Stew: That dude is sick! And!! What actual hardware company sponsored this match?!”

Talib: “Ventura jerks Michaels out from underneath the table and pulls him to a standing position.”

Stew: “God bless Mark Michaels. He’s somehow fighting back. There’s still power behind those shots. And I just really freakin admire this man’s sheer will to dethrone Ventura. He came so close to getting that 24/7 Contract back at Pain for Pride and this is his chan-“

Talib: “LOW BLOW! LOW BLOW! Michaels with a move of sheer desperation and helping the world out by attempting to take away future baby dream casters! Ventura crumbles to the ground and Michaels falls down beside him.”

Stew: “Michaels gives himself a moment to recover and returns to a sitting position. He looks at Ventura and just spitefully punches him in the nuts one more time. I don’t even blame him to be frank, but Michaels needs to use this opportunity to do a little more damage than a nut punch.”

Talib: “I think he realizes that too because he has eyes his locked on that kendo stick that was kicked away from him earlier.”

Stew: “Michaels grabs the kendo stick and uses the ropes to haul himself back up to his feet. He staggers towards Ventura and takes a minute to wipe the blood away that has fallen into his eyes. Whether it’s his blood or Ventura’s, I don’t know! This is not exactly a sanitary situation….”

Talib: “Michaels is wielding that kendo stick and basically staggering towards Ventura. The actual look of rage in his eyes leads me to believe that he’s about to show Ventura just how badly he wants to be a champion here in EAW.”

Stew: “Michaels slams the kendo stick right across the back of the champ, and now he’s beating him senseless! Over and over Mark Michaels whips Ventura with that stick!!! Those welts look nasty!!!”

Talib: “He’s broken that kendo stick and is now looking at the half of it that’s left in his hands! He’s smiling! How do these two men keep smiling?? What’s enjoyable about this match, if you wanna call it that?!”

Stew: “They enjoy it because they both want to be champion! Because Mark Michaels wants validation here in EAW!! Because Ventura is weird AF!!! MARK MICHAELS IS USING THE BROKEN PIECE OF THE KENDO STICK TO STAB AT THOSE WOUNDS ALREADY OPEN ON VENTURA’S HEAD!!!!!!! SJSJSJDJDJSBSJEUNCJEIEIEJRBCMS!!!!!!!!”

Talib: “….Ventura is laughing.”

Stew: “Of course he is because being stabbed to death is hilarious.”

Talib: “The amount of punishment Ventura is able to absorb is ludicrous. Michaels now has him in a camel clutch position with that stick right across his throat! Ventura is trying to crawl his way to the ropes… I guess to pull himself out of the ring… but Mark lets go of the clutch to grab Ventura by the hair!!! He’s now bouncing Ventura’s bloody smirking face off the mat!!!”

Stew: “Over and over!!! Michaels is seriously possessed right now!!! If he’s ever going to win this match and put the Caster of Dreams away he has got to do it now. This is the biggest opportunity he’s had in this match to try and secure the win!”

Talib: “He’s got this camel clutch choke locked in again, but he is not focused on making Ventura go to sleep! Mark Michaels is eyeing that table and that leads me to believe he’s about to do something dumb.”

Stew: “Dumb? Nah brah, he’s gunna win this match! He lets go of Ventura and good gawd he’s not pinning him! WHY AREN’T YOU PINNING HIM MARK??? THINK OF THE SELFIES YOU CAN TAKE WITH YOUR NEW CHAMPIONSHIP!!!!! It makes no sense to get out of the ring now!!”

Talib: “One does not simply pin the Caster of Dreams. One must commit an actual murder in order to put this man away and seeing as how Mark Michaels suddenly thinks he’s the Zodiac Killer, I bet he’s digging under the ring for something to use for this grand finale!!!”

Stew (muffling his mic and swearing): “JESUS BLEEPING CHRIST. That’s the biggest BLEEPING pane of glass I have literally ever seen!!!!!

Talib: “WELP! He’s slid it into the ring…”

Stew: “This might end up being EAW’s first ever murder-suicide…”

Talib: “Michaels situates the glass on top of the thumbtacks Ventura spilled all over the table. He’s picking up his opponent now and placing him across the table.”

Stew: “I don’t know if Mark Michaels believes in Gawd but he’s looking to the Heavens right now. Is he seriously about to the climb the turnbuckles?!”

Talib: “WELP!!! He’s climbing. He’s literally going to win this match or kill himself. BLEEP knows how this is gonna.”

Stew: “I can’t watch…”

Talib: “Mark Michaels is standing on the top turnbuckle and looking out at the crowd. This diving legdrop he’s about to try is something he usually does only from the second rope but hey, I get it. It’s Revolution! He wants to prove a point! He’s got to be extra! I bet the 28282837292873374 people watching this will see the Insta pic about this and like it! These two men have literally gone to war and it’s time for Michaels to deliver the kill shot!! He might not be the most popular person in the back. He might not even be anyone’s favorite. But no one can ever question this man’s heart and dedication to trying to win this Hardcore Championship. He is without a shadow of a doubt one of the toughest people on Dynasty!!!”

Stew: “Our Father, who art in Heaven, something something about a name. Thy kingdom Kong, thy will be done, just please don’t let anyone die. Amen.”

Talib: “!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

(The entire crowd, Stew, and Talib fall silent as Mark Michaels grins maniacally and launches himself from the top rope! It’s almost as if the next few seconds play out in slow motion. There’s no doubt that the men and women who work for Elite Answers Wrestling are the cream of the crop. But they are not pampered athletes. Each and every one of them have a will to win like no other. It’s that instinct – that sheer will to win – that has sent Mark Michaels flying through the air. It’s that passion and that love of this sport that causes the Hardcore Champion to summon every single bit of strength he has left in his body to move at the last possible second. Mark Michaels goes crashing through the glass and the table and the thumbtacks and sends off an explosion that freaking rocks Laramie!)

Crowd: “HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT!”

Crowd: “REST IN PEACE! REST IN PEACE! REST IN PEACE!”

Talib: “There are no words….”

(There really aren’t. Both men are down and neither are moving. Mark Michaels is probably dead. Ventura has lost more blood than most of Laramie combined. The referee can’t exactly start a count because there are literally no rules.)

Stew: “Mark Michaels just sacrificed himself in an attempt to win the Hardcore Championship…”

Talib: “But at what cost?! He will never get up from that. All Ventura has to do now is recover enough to drape his arm over the fallen body of Mark Michaels…”

Stew: “That explosion covered Ventura in carnage too, though! He might not have taken the brunt of it, but he is buried broken bits of table and glass as well!”

(Several agonizing minutes pass and neither man moves. The fans are still losing their minds, and rightfully so. These two competitors came out tonight with one goal in mind and that was to make sure they left Laramie as the Hardcore Champion.)

Stew: “I THINK JOHNNY VENTURA IS MOVING!!!!”

Talib: “Yes! He is pushing the debris out of the way and slowing sitting up! The champion trying to collect his bearings and pushes himself to up to his knees. He looks over to his left and sees that Mark Michaels still has not moved since going through that table. Ventura can see that victory is near and gingerly falls across Mark Michaels! He is finally giving the referee purpose in this match!!!!!!!”

(The referee looks relieved that he is able to count now. He’s had a front row seat to this massacre and it’s written all over his face that he just wants it to be over.)

THHHHHHHHHHHHHHREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE…………………………………..

Stew: “HOW?! WHY?!”

Talib: “HOW IS MARK MICHAELS STILL ALIVE?! HOW DID HE KICK OUT?!”

Stew: “Jesus Focking Christ.”

Talib: “Despite the pain! Despite the torture! Mark Michaels still somehow got his shoulder up!”

Stew: “Ventura is shook right now. Somehow he’s getting his second… or third… or fourth wind right now and he has climbed to his feet. He is screamed at the referee that Mark Michaels is done for, and that the count was definitely a three, and all the while he is stomping a hole into Michaels! Ventura has lost it and is dragging Michaels out of the carnage by the leg. He drags him all the way over the to the turnbuckle and somehow he is finding the strength to pull himself to the top turnbuckle…”

Talib: “Yeah but he is hauling Michaels up with him and this just does settle well with me right now. Michaels is not even on this planet right now, and Ventura has gone to another place. He’s forcing Michaels into a position for a reverse suplex…”

Stew: “…. he’s about to try and hit ‘Gandiva’ from the top rope. He didn’t even have to signal for it this time. I think we all knew this was coming!!!!”

Talib: “VENTURA HOOKS THE ARMS!!!!!”

Stew: “GANDIVA! GANDIVA! GANDIVA!”

Talib: “That’s it! That has to be it!!!!”

Stew: “Ventura is momentarily stunned….”

Talib: “BUT NOW HE IS GOING FOR THE COVER!!!!!!”
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONNNNNNNNNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!

Crowd: “TTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTHHHHHHHHHHHHHHREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

(DING! DING! DING!)

Talib: “That’s it! The Caster of Dreams Johnny Ventura has retained his championship! My Gawd what a match!”
Stew: “My Gawd what heart from Mark Michaels!”

Stephie Love: “ANNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNND HEEEEEEEEEEEEEREEEEEE IS YOUR WINNER AND STILLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL EAW HARDCORE CHAMPIOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOON….. JOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOHNNY VEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEENTURA!!!!!”

(The referee drops down to raise Ventura’s hand, and drapes the Hardcore Championship across his chest. Ventura is spent. The crowd is going crazy, extremely appreciative of the heart and effort displayed by both men here tonight. Ventura was strong in his first title defense and Mark Michaels proved without a shadow of a doubt that he does have what it takes to be a future champion of Elite Answers Wrestling. The camera cuts to a shot of Cameron Ella Ava and Impact preparing backstage.)

Stew: It’s now time for a match that has been building since Pain for Pride! Cameron Ella Ava squaring off with Seven Reigns himself, Impact!

(A highlight video begins to play show Impact’s feud and subsequent victory over Jamie O’Hara at Pain for Pride before cutting to Cameron taking out Mr. DEDEDE with his own equaliser before show both competing in the same match to see who would advance to the contenders match to crown Darkane’s first challenger for the Answers World Championship with Cameron coming out victorious. The camera cuts to the next week showing Impact taking out Cameron and Jack Ripley making the cover and Cameron’s loss. The camera cuts between different shots of both before cutting back to the arena.)

Stephie Love: Ladies and Gentlemen, this next contest is SCHEDULED FOR ONE FALL!!!!

(“ULTRAnumb” (Exterminated Remix) by Blue Stahli starts playing throughout the arena, and Cameron Ella Ava makes her way out onto the stage to an eruption of cheers. She stops at the top with a stern look on her face, before starting the walk down the ramp)

Stephie Love: Introducing first, from Los Angeles, California, weighing in at 130 pounds… “The Goddess of Dynasty” … CAMERROOOONNN ELLLLAAAA AAAAVVVAAAAAA!!!

Stew: Cameron is a woman on a mission. She’s looking for retribution after Impact seemingly took away Cameron’s chance at becoming the Answers World Champion when he got himself involved in Camerons match against Jack Ripley to determine the number 1 contender for the Answers World Championship.

NTalib: No, all Cameron had to do was lay down, and let Impact have a paved road of gold to the Answers World Championship. Cameron didn’t want to play ball, and she suffered the consequences.

Stew: SHE WON A MATCH! THAT’S IT! If Impact can’t handle someone being better than them, maybe this business isn’t the right place for him.

Talib: Yeah, he’s just a Hall of Famer, with the most World Title reigns this place has ever seen.. Sure Stew. Sure.

(“Can I Live by Jay-Z cuts off Camerons music. White lights start to flicker on stage so bright that it temporarily blinds the audience. Impact emerges from the curtain, turns his back on the audience, and reaches his arms out wide, before turning back and making his way down the ramp.)

Stephie Love: And her opponent, From Seattle, Washington, weighing in at 240 pounds, “The Quintessential Champion.. Y2IIIIIMMMMPPAAAACCCCTTT

Stew: What a dick.

Talib: EXCUSE ME? YOU MEAN KING? LEGEND? GAWD?

Stew: That’s gimmick infringement.

Talib: Shut up Stew. You’re just mad because he’s the greatest Elitist to ever grace this place with their presence, and you’re…. Fat.

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Stew: Impact and Cam are just standing on opposite sides of the ring just glaring at each other, it’s an intense stand off. Both competitors feel like the other has wronged them. Both competitors feel as though the other has taken away the chance of becoming the Answers World Champion away from the other. This is bad blood at it’s finest! They start slowly approaching each other, this thing could explode at any moment. They’re just inches away from each others faces.

Impact: You stupid fucking bitch…

Cam: Suck my dick.

Stew: Impact just reaches back and slaps the taste out of Cameron! Cam looks back up, and without hesitation shoots the legs, and gets Impact on his back with a double leg takedown. She get’s on top resting all her weight on his chest and lays those punches right into his face, one after another. Impact turns the tides, and starts doing the same, one after another, fists to the face! But Cam is able to shove Impact off, and they both get back to their feet. Impact charges right back at Cam, but she sides steps him and throws him onto the ring apron. He lands on his feet though and attempts to get back into the ring. Cam kicks the ropes though as Impact is trying to get back and it sends the rope right into Impacts throat! Impact is gasping for air now, as he flops out of the ring! Cam makes her way to the top turnbuckle, looking to fly! Here she comes! Crossbody! From the top turnbuckle all the way to the floor! BUT IMPACT CATCHES HER! AND HE RUNS HER SPINE FIRST RIGHT INTO THE TURNBUCKLE. HE KEEPS A HOLD OF HER AND HE.. OH N-…

(Impact throws Cam over the announce table taking out the announcers. He makes his way around the table, and grabs her by the hair)

Impact: Do you know who I am you stupid bitch? I’m the greatest Elitist of all time! Most World Title reigns of all time! I own this company! You just occupy it because I allow you to!

(Impact starts dragging Cam by the hair over to the barricade, he slaps her in the face again. Cam is down on one knee. Impact walks backwards trying to make some distance between him and her)

Talib: I’m back folks! I didn’t die thankfully! But it seems as though Impact has something sinister in mind here! He starts charging at Cam who is up against that barricade wall! NO! CAM BACK BODY DROPS HIM INTO THE CROWD! THAT’S A LAWSUIT READY TO HAPPEN! THE CROWD DISPERSES AND JUST LETS IMPACTS BODY FALL RIGHT INTO THOSE CHAIRS! You could say he made full IMPACT with those chairs.. Get it?! Stew do y-? oh, you’re still unconscious, great. Well, unfortunately for Impact the crowd is not body surfing him, they just let drop, and get the full brunt of it. Cam jumps the barricade, and starts walking through the seats and fans to get to Impact. Security is moving these fans out of the way, it’s just too dangerous for them to be around with all this destruction going on. Cam gets up on the seats, AND RUNS THE ENTIRE ROW BEFORE LANDING A SENTON RIGHT ON IMPACT WHO’S RESTING ON ONE OF THE CHAIRS! Cam pop’s right back up, and starts dragging Impact by his hair now! She stands him up, and gives him a knife edge chop! And another! She seems to want to get him back in the ring here. Impact isn’t having any of it as he starts to fight back.. THUMB TO THE EYE! It has Cam blinded!
Stew: Ok.. Ok, I’m back.. Caught the sharp brunt part of the shoe to my head.

Talib: Stew no one was waiting for you weak ass to come back, you’re ruining the broadcast by talking over me. Impact takes a hold of Cam! He picks her up, and runs right to the barricade and power bombs her right on top of it! He picks her up again and power bombs her right not he concrete! A double power bomb in a painful place! Cam is screaming in pain, and grabbing for her lower back. Impact has found a way to get back into this. Cam now crawling on the ground, trying make her way back up to her feet. But Impact won’t let that happen, he delivers a swift kick to the mid section! Where’s Impact going? Seems like he’s giving back to the EAW community! He’s having a little chat with one of the EAW faithful! Wait, what’s this? The fan has given Impact his drink! What’s Impact doing here. Cam is trying to make it up to her feet. Impact is removing the lid of that drink bought at the concession stand.. With all your favorite EAW Elitists on it might I add.. only $9.99, get your own when coming to an EAW event.

Stew: ENOUGH PLUGGING THE CUP! Cam get’s back to her feet, and turns around to see Impact with the cup! IMPACT LOOKING TO THROW THE CONTENTS OF THAT CUP RIGHT INTO HER FAC! .. BUT CAM PUSHES IMPACTS HAND BACK AND IT GOES RIGHT INTO HIS.. WAIT… WHAT IS THAT?!! THAT’S NOT A DRINK! IT’S DIP! THAT IS ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTING! CHEWING TABACOO THAT A FAN HAS SPIT OUT IN A CUP IS NOW ALL OVER IMPACTS FACE, IN HIS EYES, IN HIS MOUTH.. HE IS ON THE FLOOR! I THINK HE’S GOING TO THROW UP! And Cam isn’t going to let this opportunity pass her by, as she runs right at Impact and delivers a shot gun drop kick sending Impact right into the arena walls! What is going on here? These two are going to kill each other tonight it seems.

Talib: That’s what happens when you take away the one thing that everyone in this business craves for. Cam now, grabs a hold of Impact and throws him on top of a table out there.. What’s she thinking? She’s looking up to one of the higher sections of seating.. Oh no! Cam is climbing up! To the high section.. impact is lying down on this table with disgusting chewing tobacco burning his eyes, and making him sick I’m sure.. And Cam is going to add injury to insult. Cam is perched on top of the guarding rail, looking down at Impact, and turns around! OH MY GOD! CAMERON WITH A MOONSAULT FROM ABOUT 20 FEET IN THE AIR! IMPACT MOVES!! HE ROLLED OFF THE TABLE, AND CAM CRASHES RIGHT THROUGH! SHE’S DEAD! RIP CAM YOU WERE A GOOD SOUL! Both of them are just laying there on the ground, one more motionless than the other. Impact is starting to make his way back to his feet. He grabs Cam, and slings her body up onto his shoulder. He’s walking her back to the ring..

Stew: Oh what is this? Impact now spanking Cam! He’s spanking her butt as he walks back to the ring with her.
Impact: Yeah! You like that Cam! Is that how Jamie does it?! Naw, Jamie’s dying in a hospital bed! He can’t do that! I’m your Daddy now! You like that bitch?!

Stew: How disrespectful! And he just tosses her body right. Impact stands up on the barricade, and starts posing! Oh sure there’s always time to pose in the middle of a match! YOU TWAT!

Talib: Stop Stew, what if he hears you! You’ll have to defend yourself, and that won’t go well!

Stew: I don’t care, I’d fight him if he wanted!

Talib: Dude, you were taken out just by Cam being thrown at you earlier in this match.. I don’t think you can take Impact. Oh, I get it, it was the first female contact you’ve had in years.. You had to.. Get yourself together.. Hmm???

Stew: BACK TO THE MATCH! IMPACT HAS A HOLD OF CAMS HAIR AGAIN.. And he throws her back into the ring. He picks her up again, and places her on the top turnbuckle. Cam is slouched over, and it doesn’t seem she’s very receptive to what’s going on here. Impact joins her on the top turnbuckle, and grabs her head… WHAT THE HELL! Impact now moving Cams head back and forth this his crotch region simulating oral sex! What is this dude 40? And he acts like this? Dude needs to get laid or something, this is pathetic.. CAM! CAM TOSSES HIM OVER THE TOP TURNBUCKLE AND DOWN TO THE FLOOR! IMPACT LANDED WRONG! Oh god.. CAM NOW TURNS AROUND, AND LEAPS! SHE HITS A DOUBLE FOOT STOMP FROM THE TOP TURNBUCKLE, FULLY ON THE CHEST OF IMPACT.. Cam is back up, it seems she caught a second wind! Maybe sexual assault is a way to fire someone up? I don’t know. Cam picks Impact up and tosses him face first into the turnbuckle. She picks him up again, and picks him up for a german suplex, and throws him with that German back first into the turnbuckle post again! His head whipped back into that metal post!
Talib: Cam now rolls Impact back into the ring, and goes for the pin!

Ref: One! Two!

Talib: No! Impact kicks out. Cam thought she had Impact there, but she’s wasting no time with arguing. She picks Impact back up, delivers a hard kick to the face. That rocked him, as he falls back to the ground. Cam isn’t done yet though, as she drops a knee over Imps throat, and just keeps it there letting Impact gasp for air. The ref is telling Cam that it’s a choke and she needs to let up off of Impacts throat, but she’s not listening..

Ref: One! Two! Three! Four!

Stew: Cam gets off of Impacts throat just in time so she doesn’t get DQ’d. Impact has been through a lot here tonight, but he still has the intestinal fortitude to keep pushing on. He’s trying to get back to his feet, but Cameron is right back on him. She SLAPS HIM right in the face, SOME PAYBACK! She’s slaps him again! And again! She’s going slaphappy! Impact is trying to defend himself but the slaps are just coming in too fast! Impact is backed up into the ropes by all the slapping, and the ref is trying to pry Cam off of Impact, and finally does. Cam is letting her emotions get the better of her here it seems. Cam going right back at Impact though.. EVISCERATION! Impact comes hits the Evisceration out of nowhere! But after that offensive onslaught he’s unable to capitalize on it! Both competitors are pretty spent after this match. Oh but Impact seems to be inching closer, he swings his arms across Cam for a pin!
Ref: One! Two!

Talib: No! Cam is able to kick out of that one! Impact seems flustered, He’s getting right in the refs face! He’s not paying attention to Cam who has gotten back to her feet. Impact notices now, and goes after her. GODDESS TOUCH!! THE RUNNING ENZIGURI CONNECTS!!! Now Cam goes for the cover!

Ref: One!

Two!

Thre—

Talib: NO! Impact was able to kick out of it! Cam is in shock, she seems to be going back and forth within her mind just trying to figure out what she can do to get Impact for the three count. Cam get’s up, and starts bringing Impact back up to her feet, but Impact back to a base, and delivers a Northern Light Suplex to Cam with a bridge…

Ref: One! Two!

Talib: NO, Cam kicked out, Impact and Cam both now back to a base, SMALL PACKAGE BY CAM ONTO IMPACT..

Ref: One! Two!

Talib: No! Impact kicked out.. Backslide onto Cam by Impact..

Ref: One! Two!
Talib: NO! Cam kicked out of it! Back and forth they’re just trying to get the pin now! Both hurry back to their feet, Impact tries to connect with a fist to the face, but Cam ducks under it, SCHOOL BOY PIN BY CAM ONTO IMPACT.

Ref: One! Two!

Talib: No! Impact kicks out again! I guess we’re getting an education on the different types of pins here tonight! Back roll back up to a base.. SUPERKICK! No! Impact moves out of the way, and pushes Cam into the referee! The referee is down! And IMPACT HITS A LOW BLOW ON CAM! Not sure it’s the same desired effect that he would get hitting in a Man in that area, but still somewhat effective. Impact now rolls out of the ring, what’s this all about? OH MAN! Impact has a chair! The referee was pushed outside the ring, and seems to be still down! Luckily for Impact the ref didn’t see who pushed him, and now Impact is going to take full advantage right now! Impact rolls back in the ring holding the chair, egging Cam to get back up.

Impact: Come on Cam! You stupid fucking whore! I’m gonna send you to $#% with all your little buddies.. GET UP!

Stew: Cam now stirring, she’s getting up! I don’t know if she sees that Impact has the chair though! Impact measuring it up, Cam up on her feet, she turns around ANNNDDD…. SHE GETS NAILED IN THE HEAD BY THAT STEEL CHAIR! DAMN IT IMPACT! YOU’RE BETTER THAN THIS! He tosses the chair out of the ring, and goes for the cover.. But there’s no ref to make the count! He threw him out of the ring by using these underhanded tactics. Impact is pissed. It looks like Impact is going to get the ref himself, and make sure he has this win on lock!

Impact: Get up! Get up you stupid idiot, I had the pin! Let’s go!

Stew: Impact throws the ref back into the ring, and covers Cam again. I can’t believe it’s going to end this way!

Ref: ONE!!
TWO!!!
THRE—

Talib: CAM KICKEDOUT! Impact is not please with the referee and how he’s conducted himself tonight! He gets right in his face, and it looks like he’s about to hit him! IMPACT NO! YOU’LL GET DISQUALIFIED! Impact looks at Cam, and see’s the she’s still in a prone position. Impact is running at the ropes, seems like he has his sights on something, FLIGHT SIGHTS!! BUT CAM IS UP ON HER FEET, IMPACT FLIPS THROUGH THE AIR.. SUPERKICK! RIGHT TO THE FACE OF IMPACT! HE LANDS ON HIS HEAD! NOT A PRETTY LANDING! Cam goes for the cover !

Ref: ONE! TWO!! THREE..

Talib: IMPACT KICKS OUT! I THOUGHT THAT WAS IT! BUT SOMEHOW IMPACT WAS ABLE TO FIND IT WITHIN HIMSELF TO GET OUT OF THE PIN! You can see the pain on both of these competitors faces. Cam thought she just ended it, but we’ve been wrong about that quite a few times tonight. They’re wearing their hearts on their sleeves, and it has been absolutely fantastic! Cam now starts bringing Impact back to his feet again, THUMB TO THE EYE AGAIN! AND A KNIFE EDGE CHOP! Impact is still in this somehow! Impact keeps delivering those knife edge chops to Cam, and caps it off with a brutal kick to the knee! Impact goes running off bouncing off the ropes, looks like he’s going for.. OH CAM OUT OF NOWHERE!! BREAKING BARRIERS! ARGENTINE BACKBREAKER CONNECTS! CAM CAUGHT IMPACT WHILE HE WAS RUNNING AT HER WITH THE BREAKING BARRIERS! IMPACTS SPINE JARRING IN PAIN, BUT HE ROLLS STRAIGHT OUT OF THE RING; YEARS OF EXPERIENCE AND INSTINCT COMING INTO PLAY AS IMPACT DROPS DOWN TO THE FLOOR!!! CAMERON TURNS AROUND, BUT IMPACT ISN’T THERE!!! LOOK AT IMPACT; IMPACT IS CRAWLING AWAY!!! I DON’T THINK IMPACT HAS ANY INTEREST IN GETTING BACK INTO THE RING!!! BUT, CAMERON!!! CAMERON ISN’T GOING TO LET IMPACT GET ANYWHERE FAST!!! CAMERON SHOOTS OUT OF THE RING AND GRABS IMPACT!!!

ONE!!!… TWO!!!… THREE!!!… FOUR!!!…

Stew: CAMERON LOOKING TO ROLL IMPACT BACK INTO THE RING, BUT IMPACT CHARGES FORWARD AND IS ABLE TO SEND CAMERON HEAD FIRST INTO THE RING POST!!! YOU COULD HEAR THE SOUND OF SKULL MEETING STEEL!!! CAMERON GOES DOWN AND IMPACT LIKE A SHARK THAT SMELLS BLOOD POUNCES!!! IMPACT WITH THOSE CLOSED FISTED SHOTS TO THE FACE OF CAMERON AS THE REFEREE RUSHES OUT OF THE RING!!! THE REFEREE TRYING TO STOP IMPACT, BUT IMP PUSHES HIM AWAY!!! IMPACT WILL NOT RELENT!!! THE REFEREE TRYING AGAIN; IMPACT IS RUNNING A FINE LINE!!! THE REFEREE CALLS FOR THE BELL!!! THE REFEREE HAS DISQUALIFIED Y2IMPACT!!!

(Impact gets back to his feet as a chorus of boos echo throughout the arena, which only seems to bring a vile smirk to the face of the Quintessential Champion.)

Talib: Impact doesn’t care in the slightest, Stew! Cameron is barely moving; he may have a concussion after hitting that steel ringpost, let alone the shots afterwards.

Stew: IMPACT IS NOT FINISHED, TALIB! IMPACT DRAGS CAMERON BACK UP AND ROLLS HER INTO THE RING!!!! CAMERON SOMEHOW PUSHING HER WAY BACK TO HER FEET – EVISCERATION!!!!! CAMERON DROPPED BY IMPACT!!!!

(Impact stands over Cameron as “Can I Live” blasts through the speakers as venom continues to reign down from those packed in the arena.)

Talib: Impact may have been disqualified, but I’m sure his mission has been accomplished! Impact has laid out Cameron Ella Ava!

(Impact places his foot on the chest of Cameron and raises his arms before beginning to make his leave. Cameron remains unmoved in the ring as Impact arrogantly makes his way up the ramp. Impact stands on the ramp soaking in everything as the camera cuts back to the announcers table.)

Stew: We’re moments away from our main event which will be contested for the Answers World Championship, but we’ve been given the chance to make a HISTORIC announcement. For the last few years Dynasty has presented a show that has been titled: House of Glass. It has been a PPV that has given Dynasty the opportunity to go back to the ways of old and go back to the measures that made this company so great. But, with that being said – I’m here to announce that House of Glass has been retired and from its ashes comes a brand new event, which will give this brand the true opportunity to go to whatever length they please. There will be more elements of pain that just using glass. This event will help put the EXTREME back in EAW. On the 20th of October, Dynasty will present to the world… Operation: Doomsday!

(The poster flashes on the screen as the thousands in attendance cheer in unison before the main event graphic flashes across the screen.)

Stew: It’s been a big night so far, but it’s time to cap things off with our main event! The 24/7 Contract holder will face Darkane, who is walking into his first championship defense!

(The camera cuts back to the ring as Stephie Love stands in the ring ready.)

Stephie Love: Ladies and Gentlemen, this next match is scheduled for ONE FALL!!!!

Crowd: ONE FALL!!!!

Stephie Love: AND IS FOR THE ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP!!!!!!

(“A Story To Tell” by Woe, Is Me hits as Jack Ripley confidently makes his way through the curtain; he stands on the stage, an arrogant smirk covering his face soaking in the pure venom begin spit from the crowd before making his way down to the ring.)

Stew: It is now time for the absolutely biggest match in this career of this man. He’s a man that will go down as one half of arguably the greatest tag team of all time as apart of the three time Unified Tag Team Champions, the High Rollerz. But, tonight isn’t about his shared success. Tonight is about Ripley walking out in front of the world and competing in his first singles championship match in his seasoned career here in EAW.

Talib: It’s an interesting match up, Stew. On paper – you see Darkane as the heavy favourite, but I don’t believe that things are so clear cut. There’s no doubt in my mind that this man is a better wrestler than the Answers World Champion, but Jack Ripley is going to have to make sure that he doesn’t lose control of this match. If he wants to become the Answers World Champion – he’s going to have to make sure that Darkane isn’t able to turn this match into what he wants it to be. A fight.

(“Born Too Late” by Saint Vitus hits as Darkane makes his way through the curtain to a THUNDEROUS mixed reaction from the thousands in attendance. He stands on the stage staring down at his challenger; the Answers World Championship resting comfortably around his waist.)

Stew: There may not be another man on this brand that is on a bigger role that the man that sits at the head of the table is on right now. His match with Scott Diamond at Pain for Pride was absolutely phenomenal; it was the night where he finally took hold of something he was moving towards for months, and now that he has it… I’m not too sure who’s going to be able to take it away from him.

Talib: I said it best when I said that Ripley can’t allow this man to allow things to break down. Darkane is going to want to turn this match into a brawl; take his opponent out of his element and slowly break him down. He’s going to want to make him hurt; make him want to quit. I don’t believe that this match is going to be pretty in the slightest, but I can’t pick who’s going to come out as the Answers World Champion. You just can’t count out the challenger.

Stew: It’s now time for the formal introductions.

(The camera cuts to shots of the champion and his challenger before cutting to Stephie Love.)

Stephie Love: Introducing first from Las Vegas, Nevada, weighing in tonight at TWO HUNDRED AND TWO POUNDS!!!!… HE IS THE HOLDER OF 24/7 CONTRACT!!!… JACK!!!! RIIIIIPPPLLLLEEEEYYYY!!!!

(The roar with boos as the arrogant smirk return to the face of a challenger.)

Stephie Love: Introducing next from New Orleans, Louisiana, weighing in tonight at TWO HUNDRED AND FORTY POUNDS!!!!! HE IS THE REIGNING ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION!!!!!! DAAAAAAAAAAARRRKKKKAAAAANNNNNEEEE!!!!!

(The crowd erupts with a mixed reaction as Darkane raises the Answers World Championship high into the air. His eyes locked on Jack Ripley who leans back in the corner, pushing himself up onto the top rope and kicking his feet up. The referee takes the Answers World Championship and raises it high into the air before handing it to the time keeper and calling for the bell.)

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Stew: The bell rings and our MAIN EVENT for the Answers World Championship is officially underway! Darkane immediately stepping forward as Ripley pops down to the canvas. Whoever takes control early in this main event is going to tell an extremely telling point for how this contest may go. The two slowly circling around the ring and eventually lock up! Darkane immediately takes control using his power advantage to trap Ripley in a side headlock. Ripley quickly pushing his boot into the back Darkane’s knee managing to create enough leverage to slip out – and he slaps Darkane in the back of the head! Darkane shoots to his feet and instantly rushes forward swinging for a wild clothesline! Ripley shoots forward and slides, grabbing Darkane by the legs and pulls them out from under the Champion. Darkane falls chest first on the canvas and Ripley quickly shoots over the top and locks in a front facelock! Ripley knows that he’s not going to back to stand against Darkane, but when things are down like this that he has all the control.

Talib: Ripley looking to get under the skin of the champion and it worked early. Darkane trying to fight back to his feet, but Ripley fires with a knee to the top of the head. Ripley fires with a second before transitioning onto the back of Darkane. I think he knows that he’s not going to be able to keep Darkane down this early into the contest. Ripley trying to lock his forearm under the jaw of the Answers World Champion who’s pushed his way up to a knee. Ripley uses his legs to lock the waist of Darkane; this is extremely smart from the challenger. This forces Darkane to burn energy by having to lift the weight of the challenger also. Darkane’s back to a knee before shooting back to his feet and rushes back, driving Ripley back into the corner! Ripley release AND DARKANE IMMEDIATELY FIRES WITH A VICIOUS RIGHT HOOK! That connected flush on the jaw! Ripley staggers forward and drops down to his hands and knees!

Stew: Darkane doesn’t give Ripley the chance to recover in the slightest! Darkane follows with a knee to the ribs! Darkane with another, forcing the air out of the lungs of the challenger! Darkane dragging Ripley back to his feet and sends him across the ring and crashing into the corner! STINGER SPLASH! Ripley crushed into the corner and staggers back forward – BUT STAGGERS STRAIGHT BACK INTO THE GRASP OF THE ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION WHO TURNS HIM BACK TOWARDS THE CORNER AND SENDS HIM FLYING BACK INTO THOSE TURNBUCKLES WITH AN EXPLODER SUPLEX! Ripley’s spine jarring in pain as Darkane sits there. This is exactly what Ripley needed to avoid, but Darkane has managed to take early control. A sick smile crossing the face of Darkane as he gets back to his feet – but, Ripley rolls out of the ring! Ripley deciding that he needs to gain some breathing room away from the Answers World Champion!

Talib: I don’t think that Darkane is willing to give it to him, Stew! Darkane rolls out of the ring behind the referee and charges around the ring – BUT RIPLEY TAKES OUT THE KNEE WITH A LOW DROPKICK! Darkane’s sent tumbling across the thin padding that covers the concrete flooring. Darkane trying to quickly push himself back to his feet, but Ripley’s there to roll him straight back into the ring! Ripley playing possum, luring Darkane in and takes full advantage! Darkane grabbing at that knee as he pushes himself back up. Ripley shooting onto the apron and stalks – RIPLEY SPRINGBOARDS OFF THE TOP ROPE!! SPRINGBOARD CLOTHESLINE!!! The Answers World Champion taken back down, but Ripley isn’t finished with just that! Ripley shoots back up and hits the ropes as Darkane quickly pushes himself back up to a knee! RIPLEY LEAPS OVER DARKANE AND TAKES HIM DOWN WITH A SOMERSAULT NECKBREAKER!!! Ripely taking a look back at Darkane who’s already trying to sit up! Ripley hits the ropes again! DAYLIGHT SLAYING TIME!!!! RUNNING KNEE TO THE ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION!!!! DARKANE IS DOWN AND RIPLEY SHOOTS INTO THE FIRST AND POSSIBLY ONLY PIN ATTEMPT OF THIS MAIN EVENT!!!

ONE!!!!.. TWO!!!!…

Stew: KICKOUT FROM THE CHAMPION!!!

Talib: Ripley may have not gotten the win with that move, but this has to give the challenger a lot of confidence. He has the Answers World Champion on the back foot. He found a way to stop his momentum in an instant and almost knock him out cold just a few moments later. Ripley is back to his feet and calls the champion back up. Darkane getting back up, but Ripley catches him with a HARD shoot kick to the chest the moment he makes it back to a knee – Standing Bicycle Kick follows the shoot kick – AND THEN A SIDE KICK TO THE JAW!!!! RIPLEY NOT TAKING ANY HALF MEASURES AS DARKANE REMAINS ON HIS KNEES… WAIT!! THE ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION IS LAUGHING!!! Ripley doesn’t know what to do. He just hit the Answers World Champion with three cracking shots and he’s laughing them off! Ripley first with another shoot kick to the chest! DARKANE CATCHES THE LEG!! DARKANE GETTING BACK TO HIS FEET!!!! ENZIGURI!!!! RIPLEY CONNECTS WITH A KICK TO THE SIDE OF THE HEAD!!!! DARKANE IS STUNNED, AND YOU CAN SEE THE URGENCY FROM THE CHALLENGER!!! DARKANE IS STILL ON HIS FEET!!! RIPLEY IS BACK TO HIS FEET AND CHARGES FORWARD – BUT RUNS STRAIGHT INTO THAT DOUBLE-A SPINEBUSTER!!!! Ripley driven spine first into the canvas, but look at Darkane! The Champion quickly moves into the mount and begins to fire away with those closed fisted shots!

Stew: Those are illegal strikes from the champion! The referee quickly dragging the champion off the challenger, but the damage may be done! Darkane is back to his feet and a dazed Jack Ripley isn’t too far behind him! Darkane has the challenger locked in his sight as Ripley gets back to his feet and stumbles back into the ropes! CACTUS CLOTHESLINE!!!! BOTH MEN CRASHING OVER THE TOP ROPE AND SPILL TO THE OUTSIDE!!! Ripley takes a bad fall, but the Answers World Champion is already back to his feet! Darkane may be intent on punishing Jack Ripley! Ripley pushes back onto his hands and knees, BUT DARKANE GRABS HIM BY HIS HAIR AND SENDS HIM CRASHING INTO THOSE UNFORGIVING STEEL STEPS!!!! THE STEPS EXPLODING APART, BUT DARKANE ALREADY HAS A HOLD OF HIM AGAIN – AND THIS TIME SENDS HIM INTO THE BARRICADE!!!

ONE!!… TWO!!… THREE!!… FOUR!!…

Stew: The referee beginning his count –

Talib: I don’t believe that Darkane cares about the count in the slightest! This may be about to turn into a long night for Jack Ripley! Ripley’s eyes are open, but there may be nobody home as Darkane grabs him! Darkane pulls Ripley in, who isn’t putting up any struggle and powers him up into the air BEFORE DROPPING HIM SPINE FIRST ACROSS THE BARRICADE WITH A VERTICAL SUPLEX!!

FIVE!!… SIX!!… SEVEN!!…

Stew: Ripley left laying on the top of that barricade as Darkane rolls back into the ring! I think the champion may be content with a countout victory! Darkane calling Ripley back to the ring, asking if he’s willing to put himself through more punishment! Ripley rolls off the barricade and drops back down to the floor!

EIGHT!!…

Stew: Ripley rolling towards the ring and uses the apron to pull himself back up! Ripley clutching at his spine; it has to be in pure agony!

NINE!!…

Talib: Ripley needs to find the strength to get back –

TE-

Stew: RIPLEY LEAPS BACK INTO THE RING AND MAKES IT BACK IN TIME!!!

Talib: BUT, LOOK AT DARKANE!!! RIPLEY MADE IT BACK INTO THE RING, BUT STRAIGHT BACK INTO THE GRASP OF DARKANE!!! THE ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION HAS HIM SET!!! GRAVE DIGGER!!!!!! REVERSE RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP!!! RIPLEY DRIVEN FACE FIRST INTO THE CANVAS!!!! DARKANE WITH THE COVER!!!!

ONE!!!!!… TWO!!!!!…

Talib: RIPLEY GETS THE SHOULDER UP!!!

Stew: We may learn a lot about Ripley tonight! We may get to see how deep he may be able to dig down in order to continue! Darkane pushing himself back to his feet… and he calls for the end! Darkane is ready to put this one to rest as he backs into the corner! Ripley is stirring, but I don’t know how much the man has left! Darkane stalking intently; it’s been a great effort, Jack! Jack is slowly pushing himself back to his feet! He’s about to understand the true meaning of Darkane Times! JACK IS BACK UP —- AND DARKANE ALMOST BREAKS HIM IN HALF WITH THAT DEVIL MAY CRY!!!!! NO, RIPLEY GETS OUT OF THE WAY AND DARKANE HITS THE MIDDLE TURNBUCKLE FACE FIRST!!! DARKANE IS ABSOLUTELY STUNNED!!!! RIPLEY TRYING TO SHAKE OUT THE COBWEBS!!!! DARKANE PUSHES HIMSELF OUT OF THE CORNER AND BACK – AND RIPLEY SCOOPS HIM UP ONTO HIS SHOULDER!!!! LAWN DART!!!!! DARKANE THROWN BACK FACE FIRST INTO THE CORNER!!!!! DARKANE STILL REFUSING TO GO DOWN – AND RIPLEY CRACKS HIM IN THE HEAD WITH A ROUNDHOUSE KICK!!!

Talib: This is what Jack Ripley needs to do, Stew! Darkane rolling out of the ring, but Ripley doesn’t slow down hitting the ropes and shooting back THROUGH THE ROPES WITH A TOPE – TORNADO DDT!!!!

ONE!!!!!!!!… TWO!!!!!!!!!… THREE

Stew: IT’S NOT ENOUGH!!!

Talib: Wow! You have to believe that the cover had to hurt Ripley there! Exhaustion setting in and all he did was fall back on Darkane! Ripley just sitting there looking at the referee; he needs to capitalise on this opportunity! He needs to put the champion away and make history! Jack Ripley pushing himself back to his feet; fire in his eyes like none that I’ve seen in the man before! He’s calling Darkane back to his feet; he wants to kick the man’s teeth down his throat! He wants his moment as Answers World Champion! Darkane slowly pushing himself back to his feet; he has no idea what’s waiting for him! DARKANE’S BACK UP!!!!! YOU’LL FLOAT TOO!!!!!!

(“Born Too Late” by Saint Vitus hits as Darkane rolls off Jack Ripley; the referee hands him the Answers World Championship which he immediately pulls to his chest and holds tightly.)

Stephie Love: THE WINNER OF THIS MATCH… AND STIIILLLL THE ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION!!!!!! DAAAAAARRRKKKAAANNNEEE!!!

Stew: Darkane does it! Darkane has retained the Answers World Championship against a valiant Jack Ripley!

Talib: What a great way to end tonight’s incredible show! There were moments where I thought that both men were walking out of tonight as the Answers World Champion, but Darkane just manages to hold onto the gold!

Stew: Jack Ripley gave an awesome fight against the champion; you can say he had this match won if Darkane didn’t fall out of the ring after that Superkick. We could be celebrating the crowning of a new champion. But tonight wasn’t his night.

(Darkane gets back to his feet and celebrates with his Answers World Championship as he makes his way to the ramp.)

Stew: Tonight has been an incredible show. The champion now looks towards his next championship defense against Kevin Hunter! This is Stew-O signing off with my broadcast colleague, Talib! Thank you for tuning in Ladies and Gentlemen – SEE YOU ALL NEXT WEEK FOR DYNASTY!

(Darkane stands on the ramp looking back at Jack Ripley who recover in the ring as the camera fades to black.)
