World Title Match: Slickie T vs Gravedigger
Between the Lines by Stone Temple Pilots hits, and Aftermath is live from the Bradley Center in Milwaukee, Wisconsin! The crowd roars as the pyro goes off and the music plays. We go to our announcers.
Zach Davis: Welcome to Aftermath! After our confusing week off, we're back!
Shannan Lerch: Besides Monday Night Man Made Gods, which didn't turn out all that well. But anyway, huge matches tonight!
Zach Davis: We've got a huge World Title match tonight. Slickie T is up against Gravedigger.
Shannan Lerch: Gravedigger won the belt last month, taking it from Chad Evans in quite the controversial decision. We haven't seen Chad since.
Zach Davis: And now Slickie has the chance to take the belt back. This was the culmination of a HUGE plan by Gravedigger, who was masquerading as Hector Rodriguez for months. Its STILL hard to believe.
Shannan Lerch: We also have an epic one on one encounter between Jay Price and Greenfever... this is going to be brutal. I'm not sure if I want to watch.
Zach Davis: I know I do. This has the potential to be the match of the year.
Shannan Lerch: It has the potential to kill one of these men!
Zach Davis: This is true, but it'll be fun to watch.
Shannan Lerch: ...
Zach Davis: We also have the finals of our Trilogy Cup Tournament. This tournament began back at Timebomb, and we're down to three individuals: Steve Thunder, Oblivion, and Ace Garrison.
Shannan Lerch: The United States, Hardcore, and Television Champions, respectively. The winner of this match will show that he has what it takes to take the next step... and he'll earn a shot at the World Title.
Zach Davis: We have a huge Tag Team Titles match. FOUR teams will participate in a First Blood match.. The Cash Money Nightmares, Bishop and Priest, The Big Time Jerks, and of course.. the Tag Team Champions.. the Man Made Gods.
Shannan Lerch: We've got one last singles match between Brad Kane and D-Day. So far, Kane has been unable to get the upper hand, but we'll see if this big PPV matchup changes things for him.
Zach Davis: We also have a tag team contest between The New Confederacy and Kido and Taguchi. Kido and Taguchi debuted last week and fought hard, but were unable to defeat the Cash Money Nightmares. Will they have better luck tonight?
Shannan Lerch: And in our opener, Logan fights newcomer Karl Voronov and Anastasia Petrova. Voronov and Petrova sound like they sure might have some things in common!
Zach Davis: And why is Logan in our opener in a match that he has no place being in? He's a competitor, and didn't have any other opponent... I think he just wanted to compete here tonight. And compete he shall.
Shannan Lerch: Wait, Zach. Before we start the show.. I'm receiving word that Bishop and Priest's plane has been delayed..
Zach Davis: What?
Shannan Lerch: They'll be unable to compete here tonight. The Tag Team Titles match will now be fought between THREE teams, not four.
Zach Davis: Why didn't anyone update ME?
Shannan Lerch: Because I'm the bosses sister, duh. I get all the updates first.
Logan vs Karl Voronov vs Anastasia Petrova
The beginning drum intro of "The Struggle Within" by Metallica plays loudly and rumbles the speakers. Fans all too familiar to the theme for this certain superstar cover their ears to shield them from the extremely loud drum roll. Despite the deafening noise, they cheer and chant a name. . .
LO - GAN! LO - GAN! LO - GAN!
After the climax of the epic drum intro the song breaks into rhythm and Logan appears at the top of the ramp to stand in place. He looks totally furious yet determined, narrowing his eyebrows and clamping his lips tight and taking deep breaths in through his nose while looking around at the screaming excited audience.
LO - GAN! LO - GAN! LO - GAN!
Despite the maddening expression, something about his presence gives off the idea that he's happy to be there. And so, Logan makes his descend down the ramp. He hits ringside and slides in underneath the bottom rope with a quickness. Logan climbs the nearest turnbuckle and fixates glaring eyes on the crowd. They cheer, anticipating an upcoming taunt they've learned to play along with. . . and BOOM! - Logan shoots both his arms straight up in the air like bottle rockets!
LO - GAN! LO - GAN! LO - GAN!
The audience duplicates the dramatic taunt, holding their arms in the air with Logan. The passion in his eyes never dies as he slumps his arms back down to his sides and hops off the turnbuckle. "The Struggle Within" fades out leaving Logan to pace the ring.
Zach Davis: Here is Logan! Truly Mr. WCF.
Na Rasputye by Kipelov plays and the lights turn red as Anastasia Petrova prances about the stage. She goes to the ring and says hi to the fans and blows them kisses while shaking her booty!
Shannan Lerch: And here is Anastasia Petrova, a slutty whore.
The Big Screen blares with a picture of a snowy forest as Karl walks to the stage cuing “Grace” - by Apocalyptica. With his approach to the ring, several large explosions occur on the stage. Once Karl has climbed into the ring he does his signature taunt which involves extending his arms and slowly clinching his fist all the while making a powerful expression. After he clinches his fist he roughly pounds the fist into his chest which accompanied by a large explosion above the ring.
Zach Davis: And newcomer Karl Voronov making his debut tonight!
Zach Davis: Logan, the WCF legend, fights off Voronov and Petrova early on, using his experience to his advantage. However, Voronov's youth and technical expertise soon overcomes the WCF legend.
Shannan Lerch: This allows Petrova to capitalize when Voronov isn't looking, hitting an RKO and getting a nearfall. This kicks Voronov into high gear, and after an offensive onslaught with a few high impact moves such as his Belly to Belly Suplex and his Powerslam, he hits her with the Lake City Slam! He pins her..
Zach Davis: But the pinfall is broken up by Logan! After having rested a bit, Logan once again calls on his experience, taking it to Voronov and working over his leg. After a Dragonscrew Legwhip, Logan locks Voronov in the Sharpshooter! However, Petrova kicks Logan off.
Shannan Lerch: After Petrova and Voronov fight for a bit, Voronov gets the upper hand. After knocking Logan out of the ring, he puts Petrova in the Grizzly's Grasp... and Petrova taps out!
Logan looks up in disgust as Voronov celebrates in the ring. Logan shakes his head, walking to the back, unhappy with the loss. Voronov continues celebrating his debut victory.
The New Confederacy vs Kido/Taguchi
There is no entrance music, rather total silence as Koji and Takashi make their way through the curtain and onto the stage, their heads bowed and their hands pressed together in front of their faces as they pray to their god. They maintain this the entire time they walk down the ramp until they reach the ring. Then they stop, finish what they have to say in their praying, and then slide into the ring simultaneously. They will then begin to stretch and warm-up in the ring until the match starts.
Shannan Lerch: First up, Kido and Taguchi, looking to make up for their loss in their debut match two weeks ago.
Zach Davis: They made a good showing then, Shannan, but couldn’t quite get the job done. I don’t think tonight’s match is gonna be any easier. Tonight Kido and Taguchi take on one of my favorite tag teams, The New Confederacy…
"Renegade" by Styx begins to play over the PA system as Johnny Reb and Doc Henry step out onto the stage. Images of past matches play on the Jumbotron, while both men make their way down the ramp, working the crowd at ringside. Doc mounts the ring steps in a dignified manner, while Johnny slips through the ropes. Both men take a moment to pose for the fans before going to their corner to await the bell.
Shannan Lerch: The New Confederacy’s had their ups and downs since losing the tag titles several months ago, but for the last few weeks, these guys have been on fire.
Zach Davis: Yes, they have, Shannan. And it looks like it’s Johnny Reb and Koji Taguchi starting things off for their respective teams!
Reb and Taguchi circle one another in the ring, sizing each other up. Reb puts out a hand in a gesture of sportsmanship; Taguchi looks at it for a moment, grasps it briefly, then lets go and levels a punch at Johnny. Reb ducks, grins, and comes back with a heavy right of his own, then nails Taguchi with a Facebreaker DDT.
Shannan Lerch: What a way to start this match! Now Reb’s going for the ropes… Confederate Cannonball!
Zach Davis: And Taguchi rolls out of the way!
Taguchi pulls Reb to his feet, and the two trade punches again. Johnny dodges and makes a run for the ropes. Taguchi is right behind him, and pulls on Reb’s leg, making him crotch himself on the top turnbuckle. Taguchi sets him up for a Frankensteiner, but Reb fights him off. Johnny gets back on top and leaps off with a diving fist drop.
Shannan Lerch: Haha! I hope Taguchi likes the taste of canvas!
Johnny Reb gets back on the turnbuckle yet again, waiting for his opponent to recover, gesturing at him to stand up. Taguchi rises to his feet slowly, takes a look at Reb perched on the ropes, and stalks toward him quickly. Johnny gets airborne again, this time with a diving hurricanrana.
Zach Davis: And here’s the first cover of the match! This could be over already!
Kido rushes in before the ref can slap the mat a third time, breaking up the pin. As the ref chases him back out of the ring, Johnny pulls Taguchi up once more. Reb runs to the ropes, and nails Taguchi with a springboard bulldog. He glances to his own corner, where Doc Henry has a hand out, gesturing impatiently at Johnny to let him into the match. Reb shrugs and walks over, tagging in his partner.
Shannan Lerch: Here comes Doc Henry, to finish the job!
Zach Davis: It certainly looks that way, Shannan. Henry on the ropes… he’s going for a spear!
Shannan Lerch: But Taguchi gets out of his way!
Doc manages, somehow, to right himself before he hits the mat and grabs Taguchi’s shoulder, spinning him around. Taguchi responds with a forearm strike to the face, then dives for his own corner.
Zach Davis: Now it’s Kido’s turn! But it looks like Henry’s ready for him!
Indeed, he seems to be. Doc catches Kido on the way in and applies a facelock. He’s about to go for a DDT, when Kido nails him with a series of strikes to the midsection and wiggles out of it. He backs up a couple of paces.
Shannan Lerch: Kido with a beautiful standing dropkick! And a cover!
Doc kicks out!
Zach Davis: Close, but no luck this time…
Kido assists Henry to his feet and looks to apply a facelock of his own, but Doc doubles him over with a kick to the gut and sets him up for a pedigree. In an unexpected display of strength, however, Kido gets his weight under Doc and rises up, flipping Henry over his back. The crowd cheers.
Doc gets up again quickly, and the two tie up. Another kick to the gut bends Kido over once more.
Shannan Lerch: Doc Henry, looking for the pedigree again!
This time, Kido manages to pull Henry’s legs out from under him.
Zach Davis: No such luck, Shannan. Tonight may not be Doc’s night!
Before Henry can recover himself, Kido grabs his wrist, pulls him to his feet, and whips him to the corner where Taguchi waits. Both of them immediately launch into a merciless assault. The ref warns Kido to get out of the corner. Instead, Kido tags in his partner, who climbs the turnbuckle right away. Kido nails Doc with a suplex and slips out of the ring as his partner dives off with a legdrop!
Shannan Lerch: Oooh! Nice move by the newcomers! Henry’s gonna be feeling that one for a while!
Taguchi locks in a Boston Crab.
Zach Davis: This is the kinda teamwork we like to see from tag partners, Shannan. And what’s interesting here is that both of these tag teams consist of men who have known each other longer than they’ve been in the business.
Doc struggles desperately against the hold.
Shannan Lerch: I guess we’ll see how well those respective friendships pay off, Zach! But right now, Doc Henry really needs to make a tag!
Slowly, Henry lifts himself up on his arms. Johnny stands on the outside, clapping his hands and shouting encouragement. Doc gets one hand out front and pulls himself forward. Reb turns now to the crowd, trying to get them behind his partner. Doc makes it another few inches, while Taguchi is doing everything in his power to keep the Boston Crab locked on. As the crowd begins to get behind Doc, Henry appears to recover his strength, bit by bit, dragging his opponent ever closer to his own corner.
Closer and closer, and Doc reaches out a hand, his fingers only inches away from Johnny’s. The crowd is really behind Henry now, clapping out a slow rhythm in unison. With a final, heroic effort, Doc lurches forward and slaps Reb’s waiting hand! Johnny climbs the ropes…
Zach Davis: It looks like Taguchi is unaware that a tag has been made! He better watch out…
Shannan Lerch: Too late! Reb with a diving crossbody! But he’s not done yet!
As Henry rolls out of the ring, Johnny goes to the ropes one more time, taking just a moment to pose for the crowd before launching himself into the air with a shooting star senton!
Zach Davis: And there’s the Southern Star! Johnny Reb makes the cover!
Thr – NO!
Taguchi gets his shoulder up. Wearily, he struggles to his feet. He ducks a clothesline from Reb, and dashes across the ring.
Shannan Lerch: Taguchi with a springboard dropkick! Reb is down! The tide may be turning. Taguchi makes a cover of his own!
And Reb kicks out forcefully, leaping to his feet. He wastes no time, running for the nearest turnbuckle, with Taguchi right behind him. Taguchi reaches up to pull him back down off the ropes, but Reb turns the tables and executes a sunset flip. He applies a cross kneelock.
Zach Davis: There’s the Southern Cross, and a great strategy by Reb here. He should know the best way to hamper a high flyer is to keep him grounded.
Taguchi struggles, to no avail. But the ropes are nearby, and with his partner shouting encouragement from the corner; Taguchi has just enough strength to reach out. His fingers brush the bottom rope. He tries again, gets a firm grip. The referee calls for a break, and Reb immediately lets go.
Shannan Lerch: A clean break from Johnny Reb. He’s really been careful about sticking to the rules lately.
Both men get back to their feet. Taguchi goes for a dropkick to Johnny’s knee, but Doc gets in the ring and pulls his partner out of the way.
Zach Davis: That’s true, Shannan. And it looks like his partner’s trying to take up the slack for it…
The referee warns Henry out of the ring as Johnny looks on, shaking his head at Doc’s antics. Reb doesn’t see Taguchi get up. He turns around and walks right into a standing moonsault!
Shannan Lerch: Perfectly executed moonsault by Taguchi! He follows up with a chinlock…
Zach Davis: But a little too close to the ropes, there, Shannan. Johnny has no trouble forcing a rope break himself this time. He looks a little bit worse for the wear, though.
Shannan Lerch: Reb would be wise to make a tag, and it looks like that’s what he’s going for now…
Johnny does, indeed, seem to be edging toward his corner, keeping a wary eye on his opponent. Taguchi stops his progress with a stiff right hand to the face. Reb shakes it off and comes back with a punch of his own. The two trade hands, until Taguchi gets in a shot that sends Johnny reeling. Taguchi capitalizes with a standing dropkick and goes for a pin!
Thr – NO! Kickout by Johnny Reb!
Zach Davis: How much more can either of these men take? Both of these guys desperately need to make a tag…
Taguchi pulls Reb to his feet once more and looks to whip him into the ropes. But Reb plants his feet and reverses, nailing Taguchi with a clothesline on the way back. Johnny doesn’t waste any time, rushing to his own corner to tag in his partner. Taguchi recovers quickly and runs for his own corner as Doc gets into the ring, making a hot tag to Kido.
Doc and Kido meet in the center of the ring. Doc goes for a rake to the eyes, but Kido ducks and applies an inverted facelock. Kido signals for his finisher.
Shannan Lerch: Looks like Kido has Zero Tolerance for Doc Henry!
Zach Davis: Ugh… no more puns, Shannan. Kido with the cover!
Shannan Lerch: But here comes Johnny Reb to break it up!
Tempers are flaring and Taguchi gets into the ring while the ref is backing Johnny off. A brawl breaks out. The ref tries to restore order. Reb and Doc stop the brawl by clotheslining their opponents out of the ring simultaneously. Reb climbs out to let Doc finish the match. Doc goes out to roll Kido back into the ring.
Zach Davis: Business is picking up now!
Henry is about to follow Kido into the ring, but Kido sends him back to the mats with a baseball slide! Kido suicide dives through the ropes as Doc gets to his feet again. The referee begins to count.
Kido pulls Henry to his feet.
Kido takes out his frustration on Doc, running him face first into the guardrail.
Kido goes for an Irish Whip into the ringpost, but Doc plants his feet and reverses!
Now in control, Doc rolls his opponent back into the ring, stopping the count, and climbs in after him. As Kido gets to his feet again, Doc Henry grabs him and whips him into the New Confederacy corner. He tags in Johnny, who sets Kido up for a powerbomb. Doc delivers a double-knee backbreaker as Reb slams Kido down with the powerbomb.
Shannan Lerch: Confederate Railroad! This match is over! Johnny Reb with the cover!
Zach Davis: And there you have it! The New Confederacy picks up another win!
“Renegade” hits the PA system again as the referee lifts Doc’s and Johnny’s arms into the air. The crowd cheers wildly for the performance while both men celebrate in the ring, and Kido and Taguchi make their way to the back.
D-Day vs Brad Kane
Give Me The Meltdown by Rob Thomas plays in the speakers. The lights are dim.The lights flash on to D-Day walking out to the top of the ramp with his belt and falls on his knees and throws his arms in the air, as soon as he throws them in the air fire works go off and surround him. The screen shows all of D-Day moments of his dead and forgotten special move. As also the screen shows a ring then the words in white and in cursive, the words D-Day. When D-Day get in the ring he raises his hands to his name on the screen.
Zach Davis: Here is D-Day! He's had the upper hand in most of this rivalry with Brad Kane, but that may change tonight.
Shannan Lerch: Brad Kane is no stranger to big match situations. This may not be a Title match, but ANOTHER loss to D-Day wouldn't look too good. He HAS to be in the zone tonight.
The house lights go out in the arena as the opening of "Rock The Casbah" by TRUSTcompany flares up. Strobe lights begin to go insane after a few moments as Brad Kane appears in the entry way with Megan at his side. The crowd cheers seeing them as Brad inhales before taking a few steps and throwing his arm up into the air, letting out a tribal war cry. He then makes his way down the ring with Megan following him. A few hands get slapped but not many as once Brad is at ringside, he hops up on the ring apron as Megan goes up the stairs. The lights are back to normal as they enter the ring as he heads to the nearest turnbuckle and goes up to the middle buckle, looking out into the crowd. Some take pictures as he steps down, inhaling once more as he does the same thing on the other side of the ring. He then backs into the corner as Megan gives him a kiss good luck before exiting the ring. Brad then waits for the match to begin as his entrance song fades off.
Zach Davis: And here he is, WCF commissioner, Brad Kane!
The bell sounds. D-Day runs at Brad Kane, but Kane hits him with a stiff kick right to the head.
Shannan Lerch: Kick to the head, right off the bat! Wow!
D-Day goes down and Kane quickly gets on top of him, pinning.
No, D-Day gets the shoulder up.
Zach Davis: Phew. I thought he may have been knocked out already.
D-Day stumbles up and Kane grabs him for a Uranage move, but Day elbows him in the head a few times. D-Day bounces off the ropes and hits Kane with a huge Lariat, turning him inside out. Kane stumbles up and D-Day hits him with a Dropkick, sending him back down. The fans are cheering as D-Day jumps to the top rope and flies off with a Frog Splash!
Shannan Lerch: High risk! And into the pin..
No! Kane kicks out!
Zach Davis: Not THAT easy to pin the former World Champ.
D-Day picks Kane up and takes him back down with a Backbreaker. Kane lands face down, and D-Day stomps his back repeatedly.
Shannan Lerch: Painful.
D-Day then puts Kane into the Camel Clutch! Kane yells in pain.
Zach Davis: Is he going to tap out?..
No. Kane refuses. His resolve is showing in his eyes. He fights all the way to his feet, as D-Day tries to hold on, and rams himself backwards, crushing D-Day between himself and the turnbuckle. D-Day falls to the mat and Kane holds his back in pain, trying to shake it off as he turns around to stomp D-Day a few times. He then picks D-Day up, D-Day swings wildly, Kane ducks it and hits a huge Dragon Suplex!
Shannan Lerch: DAMN! Brad Kane just spiked D-Day right on his head!
Kane pins D-Day, hooking the leg!
No! D-Day kicks out!
Zach Davis: Brad Kane isn't the only one with heart in this match!... D-Day doesn't want to miss this chance to pin a former World Champion on PPV!
Kane gets up and watches as D-Day gets to his feet.
Shannan Lerch: Brad Kane is getting ready for a big move here..
He goes for the BK Backfist but D-Day ducks it at the last second and hits Kane with a Superkick! Kane goes flying back and D-Day quickly drops on him and pins him, hooking the leg!
Zach Davis: No! Brad Kane has once again kicked out!
D-Day picks Kane up but Kane has had enough, and starts hitting D-Day with a few martial arts strikes. D-Day stumbles back and Kane hits the Impending Doom! He pins D-Day, hooking the leg!
Shannan Lerch: From out of nowhere, Brad Kane puts D-Day away!
Kane's music hits and he stands up, triumphant. He exits the ring and heads to the back.
The Cash Money Nightmares vs The Big Time Jerks vs The Man Made Gods
First Blood Match
The arena turns black. Gold dollar signs flash about the arena. There is a red glow, as red lights illuminate the arena. Aspyxiated by Crimson Thorn begin to echo throughout the arena. The slamming drums, throbbing bass, and the thrashing guitars take over all sound, within the arena. The Dark Angel and Fort Knox comes up from a hole in the stage, that is surrounded with golden fireworks. El Angel Oscuro and Fort Knox hold out their arms, with fists clinched. As red lazers flash with the slamming drums, two bright continuous white pyro explosions explode on both sides of Fort Knox and The Dark Angel. As gold sparkling pyro set off behind them, the two jump up and land with red pyro explosion. They begin to slowly walk down the aisle.
Kyle Steel: Weighing in at an combined weight of 510 pounds.... El Angel Oscuro and Fort Knox... THE CASH MONEY NIGHTMARES!!
There is a mixed reaction, from the crowd. The nightmares walk up to the ring and The Dark Angel drops to his knees to a prayer position, as Fort Knox holds out his arms. Dark Angel puts his hands together and acts if he is praying. Fort Knox shakes his head rapidly, as he talks smack. After a few seconds , El Angel Oscuro and Fort Knox look straight up and holds out their hands with the palms up. The Dark Angel hops up and they slide into the ring. The Express walks towards separate corners. They climb up to the second turnbuckles and hold up their arms out.... A red spotlight shines on The Cash Money Nightmares. The Dark Angel and Fort Knox drops down from the turnbuckles and they lean into their corners...
Zach Davis: The Cash Money Nightmares weren't even supposed to be in this match until they got lucky and Brad Kane added them. Which works out, because Bishop and Priest were unable to appear tonight.
The arena lights fade down.
Voice: Minneapolis are you ready?
Voice: Its time to Fight!
Huge burst of white pyro go off and the arena lights fade back in as "Hero" by Pop Evil starts up as the curtain goes up showing Pop Evil playing working the crowd. Richard Flierh, in a grey $5,000 suit, Adam Young, in a black Adam Young "I'm Your Personal Jesus" t-shirt and jeans, step out into the arena. Adam has a microphone.
Adam Young: Tonight you lucky fans here and the millions watching around the World get to witness the beginning of it all. Tonight the WCF changes forever. The fans of WCF have demanded that we recapture the tag team titles and that is what we shall do tonight. WCF I give to you the first three time WCF tag team champions.
"Super Villian" by Powerman 5000 starts playing as Austin Adams and Angus Killian come out wearing matching black trunks with BTJ written on the back in red letters and red BTJ "Crash'N'Burn t-shirts. The fans are defining as all four make their way to the ringside area. Huge bursts of red, white and blue pyro goes off behind them in the entranceway as the climb into the ring with their trademark icey glares. Adam shakes hands with the duo as he steps out of the ring to sit next to Shannon at the announce table for the match. Richard is giving last minute instructions before he takes his place at ringside as the manger as this will behis first time as a manger in the WCF. Austin and Angus throw their t-shirts into the crowd as they await the rest of the tag teams.
Shannan Lerch: Interesting words by Adam Young, he sure is confident!
Home by Three Days Grace hits, and the Tag Team Champions, the Man Made Gods, step through the curtain. Creeping Death and Torture, Titles on their shoulders, head to the ring. They look all business tonight.
Zach Davis: Here we go Shannan.
Shannan Lerch: First, Zach, explain the rules for me.
Zach Davis: If any member of a team starts bleeding, that team is eliminated. So one team will be eliminated first, and then another. Here we go!
Shannan Lerch: Creeping Death, Austin Adams, and Fort Knox start the match. Knox and Adams tentatively decide to team up, taking it to the Tag Team Champion. They hit a few double team moves and then start kicking him while he's down.
Zach Davis: Smart double teaming in a match like this where there aren't any pinfalls... neither man has any reason to turn on the other until the Gods are eliminated.
Shannan Lerch: After a little while longer of beatdowns, Creeping Death starts fighting back. He works his way up and hits a few kicks to both Knox and Adams! He hits Adams with the Black Fire Upon Us, then hits Knox with the Harley Quinn's Smile... and tags in Torture!
Zach Davis: The former World Champion comes into the match with a head of steam. Both Angus and Oscuro get in the ring, he Clotheslines and Lariats them down... but the numbers game catches up. Soon Knox and Adams are on top of him and beating him down. They throw him to the outside and keep working away at him, going to bust his face. He's in between them and they keep hitting him with punch after punch to his forehead.
Shannan Lerch: Austin Adams grabs Torture's face and slams it into the turnbuckle! And then slams it into the ring steps! He just broke Torture's nose, blood is gushing everywhere... do you know what that means? THE MAN MADE GODS HAVE BEEN ELIMINATED.
Zach Davis: New Tag Team Champions for sure!
Shannan Lerch: Creeping Death is incredulous, asking Torture what the hell happened. The two head to the back, and they seem to be arguing. In the ring, Oscuro and Angus are legal now. They trade blows, Angus gets the upper hand. Angus works over Oscuro for a while, using the Cobra Clutch, Christo, and Devil Stretch... until Oscuro tags in Fort Knox.
Zach Davis: Knox comes in and tears the house down! Flying Clothesline! Stinger Splash! A big German Suplex, and then stomping on Angus' face...
Shannan Lerch: Knox grabs Angus' face and slams it into the turnbuckle several times... thats it! Angus is busted open! New Tag Team Champions!
The Big Time Jerks leave as the Cash Money Nightmares celebrate in the ring. They're handed the Tag Team Titles.
Zach Davis: I don't believe it. Fort Knox and El Angel Oscuro as Tag Team Champions... wow.
Trilogy Cup Tournament Finals
Steve Thunder vs Oblivion vs Ace Garrison
A cameraman stands in front of the commentary desk, as Shannan Lerch and Zach Davis are sitting behind the desk. Shannan is sitting to Zach's right side. The fans behind them are screaming and trying to make face and holding up signs, for the camera.
Zach Davis: Our next match is about to start and Kyle Steel is the ring, for the match introductions.
Shannan Lerch: Take it away, Kyle Steel.
Kyle Steel: This match is The Finals of the Trilogy Cup Tournament. The winner receives a World Title opportunity, at the next pay per view... Blast.
"Control" by Puddle of Mudd hits the speaker system. The speaker brushes aside and Ace Garrison appears onto the stage. He stands there for a moment and looks amongst the fans, who are greeting him with boos! He smirks, before making his way down the ramp. Ace walks up the ring steps, wipes his feet on the mat, and enters through the middle rope. He quickly walks towards the farthest corner and climbs up it. Once again, he looks amongst the crowd, before smirking and jumping down.
Kyle Steel: Walking down the aisle, weighing in at 234 pounds, from Cincinnati, Ohio.... The WCF Television Champion.... Ace Gar-r-r-iso-o-on!!!
Shannan Lerch: This match features three of the champions, here at WCF.
Zach Davis: That's right. The US Champion, the Hardcore Champion, and the Television Champion are all featured in this match.
Disturbed lead singer David Draiman: OU-U-U-U!! AH-AH-AH-AH-H-H-H!!!
Kyle Steel: From Miami, Florida... Weighing in at 220 pounds. He is currently the WCF United States Champion.... Ste-e-eve Thu-u-under-er-er-r!!
"Down with the sickness: by disturbed begins to play. The crowd explodes with cheers. Ace Garrison is leaning against the turnbuckles, as he stands in a corner. He quickly turns his head to his right, as he looks down at the aisle, towards the entrance ramp.
Zach Davis: Now, here comes the US Champion!!
Steve Thunder is wearing a big t-shirt, that is cut up the sides. The US Champion removes the t-shirt. Steve Thunder is wearing knee high shinguard boots with knee pads, and tight pants with angel wings and the word THUNDER on them. Thunder stands in front of the ring apron, as he looks around at the mostly cheering crowd. Ace Garrison walks quickly towards the ring ropes, but backs away from the ropes, with his arm extended...
At that point, Steve Thunder jumps up on the ring apron, smirks, then enters the ring. Garrison acts if he was going to charge Thunder, but Stanley Moser prevented any pre-match confrontations.
Shannan Lerch: Now, both Thunder and garrison are looking down the aisle, waiting for the WCF Hardcore Champion.
The lights go out. In the name of God by Slayer begins to play, as the thunderous combination of the guitars, bass, and drums explode through the arena's speakers.
Kyle Steel: Weighing in at 295 pounds, from the deepest, darkest part of a sick man's psyche...... O-O-O-OBLI-I-IVI-I-I-I-O-O-O-O-NN-N-NN-N!!!
White strobe lights begin to flash, in the arena, as the song starts. Smoke fills the entrance stage and ramp. There are a mixture of cheers and boos, as the crowd stands on their feet and rush to the security railings. Oblivion slowly slinks through the smoke and is low to the ground, with it's arms extended outward. Oblivion has it's index fingers pointing outward. The guitar solo begins, as the strobe lights flash and pulse, along with the music. Pyro sets off, along the length of the entrance ramp. Oblivion, with it's arms extended outward, it spins around. As Oblivion gets to ringside, It pops his neck, as Oblivion holds it's arms outward. Red, black, and white pyro explodes all over the stage, ramp, and parts, of the arena.

Suddenly "Personal Jesus" by Marilyn Manson starts playing and the crowd start chanting BTJ as Adam Young and Richard Fleihr step out into the arena in matching grey suits. They walk towards the ring. As they get up close to the ring Adam takes of his wire frame Nike shades off and puts them in his inside suit pocket.

Jay Price vs Greenfever
No Disqualification, Falls Count Anywhere Match
Shannan Lerch: Ready for this, Zach?
Zach Davis: I'm not sure if any of us are, Shannan. Each man is risking his life here tonight.
The lights drop inside the arena as "Run Rabbit Run" by Rob Zombie begins over the P.A. system. "Huntin' Humans? Ain't nuthin but nuthin'.They all run like scared little rabbits.Run rabbit run. RUN RABBIT RUN!" The aggressive drums kick in and Greenfever emerges from the darkness. His face and hands are dripping fresh blood. The crowd is incited into a screaming mob. The audience begins to throwing garbage down at him as he makes his way to the ring.
Shannan Lerch: Throwing garbage at him is only going to make him more violent...
The main lights in the arena go out as the stage, ramp and ring are lit up with an ominous red glow. The jumbotron flickers on and begins flashing the words "The Future" and "Is Now" in bold red letters. The red glow around the arena goes out and 4 Words To Choke Upon by Bullet For My Valentine blasts out over the arena's PA System as the crowd jumps from out of their seats, booing at the thought of what is going to come. The big screen switches from the wording to showing various scenes of Price's career, including his pin fall victories over Logan and Creeping Deat, his TV Title and Hardcore Title wins, and the day Seth Lerch awarded him the Peoples Title and the Elite Title. A spotlight then comes on and focuses on the curtain that leads backstage. As the lead singer begins singing, Jay Price emerges through the curtain, his head and face covered by the hood of a black sweatshirt. The WCF Elite and WCF People's titles are thrown over each shoulder while the original WCF World Title, still dulled down, is wrapped around his waist. He steps out onto the stage and stops at the top of the ramp as he looks out at the crowd, smiling from beneath his hood as they unmercifully boo him. He then takes off down the ramp, occassionally stopping to threaten a fan or to flip off small children as the spotlight follows him the entire way. Finally he reaches the ring steps and takes his sweet time climbing them until he reaches the apron. He then climbs through the top and middle ropes, heads for the nearby corner and climbs up onto the second rope. He then unhooks the World Title from his waist and holds it high above his head as the flashes from the cameras reflect off the gold from all three title belts. He then hops down from the corner and hands off all three belts to the referee who nearly falls over from the massive weight. Finally his music fades out as the lights in the arena come back on.
Zach Davis: And here is Jay Price. This just might be his curtain call.
Shannan Lerch: As soon as the bell rings, Greenfever tackles Price, pummeling him with strike after strike after strike. Price is busted open early... this isn't going to be for the faint of heart. Greenfever lets Price stand... there is the Red Bile Mist Spray!
Zach Davis: No, Price ducks it! Price on the offensive now, thumb to the eye, Reverse STO.. and now a Guillotine Choke! If a man can't breathe, he can't fight.
Shannan Lerch: Greenfever may be a God, not a man, because he fights out of it. Greenfever on the offensive again... lots of brawling... Trapping Headbutts! Blood is gushing from Price's face... and the fight spills to the outside.
Zach Davis: Chair shot from Greenfever... he's just decimating Jay Price here. These men used to be partners... they were the LadyKillers!... this is just brutal. Price is sent into the guardrail.. and now both men are in the crowd!
Shannan Lerch: Brawling in the crowd, the fans get away from Greenfever... Price just grabbed a fan's beer bottle, took a drink and smashed it on Greenfever's head! Greenfever is bleeding now too... and uh oh. They've made their way up and Price is going to throw Greenfever off a balcony type area...
Zach Davis: Greenfever fights back though... GREENFEVER THROWS PRICE OFF THE BALCONY! Price lands on a bunch of vacated chairs where fans had moved away... damn.
Shannan Lerch: Greenfever picks him up and takes him backstage now. He slams Price into a vending machine, and the ref is fighting to keep up with them. Greenfever grabs him and hits the Dislocated Piledriver! He pins him in our first pin attempt of the match... one, two... no! Price kicks out! He has heart. Maybe not brains, but lots of heart.
Zach Davis: Greenfever picks Price up, Price is finally fighting back... Price hits the Busted Grill out of nowhere and falls on Greenfever.. no! Greenfever kicks out also!
Shannan Lerch: Price leads Greenfever into another room... oh no, its a parking garage. They brawl all the way to a car and they're still brawling.. Greenfever grabs Price's head and smashes it through the windshield! Oh God...
Zach Davis: Greenfever takes Price down now and locks in the Move That You Fear... this is it....
Shannan Lerch: Jay Price taps out! Its over!
Greenfever stands up, blood all over his body. His own, and Jay Price's. He looks down with contempt on Jay Price, a broken man. Greenfever leaves.
Slickie T vs Gravedigger
The arena fades to black as a red, white, and green spotlights begin to circle the crowd and a red glow appears on the left side of the stage, a white glow in the middle, and a green glow on the right, as “Gravesend (Lake of Fire)” by Lordz of Brooklyn begins to blast over the speakers and the three lights come together in the center of the stage where Slickie T stands with his back turned to the crowd, his arms extended to form the shape of a “T”. He watches as the screen shows a roulette wheel spinning as the pill comes to settle on the green 00 space and the camera zooms in on the pill until the screen becomes completely white and then “Slickie T the Ace of Hardcore” scrolls across the screen in black in front of a waving Italian flag. Slickie then quickly turns as the pill settles in the 00 space and red, white, and green pyros explode behind him as he slowly makes his way down the ramp, slapping hands with those who are reaching out to him. As he reaches the ring, he quickly climbs the ring stairs, looking out over the crowd before grabbing the top rope and vaulting over the top of it and into the middle of the ring. After glancing over the crowd with a thin smile on his face, he climbs a turnbuckle and throws his arms out once again to form a “T” before backflipping off the top turnbuckle and back into the middle of the ring as the lights come up once again.
Zach Davis: The challenger for the world heavyweight title, Slickie T. He never received his rematch from losing the belt and even won a shot at the belt after losing it and this is STILL his first shot at the belt.
The lights go out. They stay off for about 15 seconds or so before "Change" by Deftones starts playing throughout the arena. A spotlight hits the entranceway and out from the back walks Gravedigger's bodyguard, Mike D. A couple of seconds later, Gravedigger walks out from the back, belt around his waist, escorted out by Jessie and JJ...one on each arm.
The crowd boos heavily and the four stop on top of the ramp as Gravedigger looks around smiling. The four then walk down the ramp and over to the ring steps. Mike D jumps from the floor to the apron and climbs into the ring. Gravedigger climbs the steps first and turns to the girls, pulling up the middle rope and stepping down on the bottom one, as both women step through the gap into the ring.
Gravedigger steps through the top and middle rope and walks over to one of the turnbuckles and stands on the middle pad and holds the belt high over his head as the crowd rains boos down upon him.
Shannan Lerch: This guy here is the reason why Slickie never got his shot. Burning down my brother's house to gaurantee himself the shot that won him the strap he wears now.
Gravedigger takes the belt from around his waist and hands it to the referee who holds it up in the air. Gravedigger points to the belt and then to himself and the crowd starts booing. He grins at the boos. Jessie, JJ, and Mike D all three climb out of the ring as the referee checks to see if both men are ready. He stands in the center of the ring and signals for the bell. Slickie starts stepping toward the center of the ring but Gravedigger just leans against the turnbuckle in his corner, as if he's not even taking this seriously. Slickie stops and stares at Gravedigger as the crowd boos heavily.
Zach Davis: I've been excited for this match all month.. here we go.
Slickie T steps forward and Gravedigger steps forward and both men lock up in the center of the ring. Gravedigger shows off his power by shoving Slickie T across the ring. They lock up again and Gravedigger applies a headlock. Slickie backs them into the nearby ropes and shoves Gravedigger off. Digger bounces off the ropes and just plants his feet in the center of the ring, flooring Slickie T with a big shoulderblock. Slickie T stands back up and Gravedigger goes for a big boot but Slickie ducks and hits Gravedigger with a neckbreaker. Gravedigger is back up and is irish whipped across the ring and is floored by a dropkick. Digger is back up and Slickie floors him one more time with a dropkick and Gravedigger rolls to the side of the ring and is up on one knee on the ropes, grinning at Slickie.
Shannan Lerch: These men have completely different styles, but in my opinion they're both at the top of their game with their respective styles.. they're evenly matched.
Zach Davis: I'd agree with that.
Gravedigger stands up and approaches Slickie once more. Slickie irish whips Gravedigger but he reverses it and catches Slickie on the way back with a belly-to-belly suplex. Gravedigger capitalizes immediately by applying a headlock on the former champion. Gravedigger occasionally flexes one of his biceps causing Slickie to holler out as he lays slumped on his side, Gravedigger using his size and power to keep him grounded.
Shannan Lerch: Gravedigger showing off his ring smarts by keeping Slickie T grounded and from doing any of his high flyer moves.
The crowd starts rallying behind Slickie T as he begins to fight back. He's up on one knee and Gravedigger tries to wear him down but Slickie starts hitting him with rights and finally shoves him to the nearby ropes. Gravedigger comes running back and Slickie tries to duck but Digger catches him in a sleeper hold. Gravedigger lifts him up and slams him on his back instead of keeping the sleeperhold held in. Gravedigger starts stomping away at Slickie. The referee finally gets him to back off as Slickie gets to his feet. Gravedigger goes to grab Slickie T but Slickie ducks, runs to the nearby ropes and springboards off for a beautiful dropkick that nails Gravedigger right in the kisser. Digger is back up and is floored by a DDT. Digger gets back up and is irish whipped. Slickie leaps up on his way back and goes for a hurracanrana, but Digger catches him and shoves him backwards. Slickie lands on his feet and the crowd cheers but Digger figured on this and is already in the motions for a big clothesline from hell that takes the wind out of Slickie's sails as he lays on the ground. Gravedigger goes for the pin.
1...kick out by Slickie T.
Zach Davis: Going to take a lot more than that to put away a former world champion.
Shannan Lerch: This has been a pretty even contest until that move right there.
Zach Davis: A huge clothesline from a man like Gravedigger will slow anyone down.
Gravedigger picks Slickie up and irish whips him across the ring and floors him with a big boot. Gravedigger drops a big elbow across the chest of Slickie T and picks him up again. Big Russian legsweep by Gravedigger. Gravedigger is on top of Slickie hammering him with rights in the forehead. The referee pulls him off of him and convinces him to give Slickie some air. Slickie T starts getting up and Gravedigger is on top of him when Slickie punches him in the midsection. Another punch. A third punch, causing Gravedigger to take a couple of steps back. Slickie ducks a grab attempt by Gravedigger and bounces off the nearby ropes. Gravedigger quickly turns around, grabs Slickie and keep spinning and plants him in the center of the ring with a huge spinebuster.
Shannan Lerch: What power!
Gravedigger gets up to one knee and looks out at the crowd with a grin on his face. He picks up Slickie T and lifts him up onto his shoulders, going for the Embalmer. Slickie slides off his back somehow and quickly dropkicks Gravedigger in the back, causing him to fall onto the middle rope. Slickie runs across and leaps onto Gravedigger's back. Gravedigger bounces off onto the mat and barely has time to react as Slickie T bounces off the ropes for an asai moonsault and connects. He hooks the leg for a pin but Gravedigger has already kicked out before the referee can even realize what's going on. Gravedigger slides out of the ring and collects himself. A fan at ringside gets his attention and the two begin jawing away at each other.
Zach Davis: Gravedigger is making a mistake here..
Slickie T runs across the ring and dives between the top and middle ropes as Gravedigger turns around. Slickie's suicide connects and takes down the world champion. The referee walks over to the side and yells at Slickie before starting the ten count.
1...2...Gravedigger and Slickie start getting up.
3...4...Gravedigger grabs Slickie and goes to slam his face on the apron, but Slickie blocks.
5...6...Slickie elbows Gravedigger a couple of times and slams his face onto the apron instead.
7...Gravedigger's head bounces off the apron and he staggers back as Slickie slides into the ring.
8...Gravedigger climbs onto the apron and the referee stops the count.
Shannan Lerch: Thank God, no one wants the match to end like that.
Slickie is over at the side and grabs at Gravedigger but he grabs Slickie by the head and drops to the arena floor, yanking Slickie's throat over the top rope. The referee threatens to disqualify Gravedigger who looks up and says he doesn't give a shit. Gravedigger walks around ringside for a few seconds before climbing back into the ring as Slickie is coughing on the other side. Slickie starts getting up and Gravedigger leans back against the rope for momentum and runs across the ring getting ready for another clothesline when Slickie leaps forward and nearly takes Gravedigger's head off with an Omerta out of nowhere.
Zach Davis: THERE IT IS!
Gravedigger is laid out on his back in the ring, apparently unconscious. Slickie stands there for a second looking at him and then quickly covers him. The referee slides into position.
Shannan Lerch: NEW WORLD CHAMPION!
kick out by Gravedigger.
Zach Davis: Nope! Wow, that big kick to the chin nearly took Gravedigger out right then.
Gravedigger starts getting up a little groggy. Slickie takes advantage by running at him and hitting him with a springboard DDT. Gravedigger gets up again and is floored once more by a scissor kick. Slickie T runs to the nearby turnbuckle and leaps off hitting a shooting star press onto Gravedigger going for the cover once more.
1...kick out again by the world champion.
Shannan Lerch: Gravedigger is NOT an easy man to pin.
Slickie T gets up quickly and runs across the ring before Gravedigger can even react and flips into the air landing on Gravedigger. Slickie T is back up and picks Gravedigger up. Slickie goes to kick him but Gravedigger grabs his boot shaking his head. Slickie nods and leaps up, spins backwards and plants both feet in Gravedigger's chest sending him crashing to the mat. Gravedigger gets up pisssd off and charges at Slickie. Slickie slides under Gravedigger's feet and nails Gravedigger with a couple of kicks as he turns around and then staggers him back with a spin kick. Slickie charges at Gravedigger and clotheslines him but both men tumble to the outside.
Zach Davis: I'd say Gravedigger probably has the advantage out here, Slickie needs to get back in the ring.
After a few seconds, Slickie gets up and climbs onto the apron as Gravedigger gets up, too. Slickie runs across the apron and flips through the air and nails Gravedigger knocking him to the outside as the referee is counting.
1...2...3...both men get up and Slickie rolls into the ring.
4...5...Gravedigger is back up and rolls into the ring also.
Shannan Lerch: Back in the ring, here we go.
Slickie tries to keep the momentum going as he goes for another hurracanrana on Gravedigger, but Digger is ready for it and holds onto Slickie, takes a couple of steps forward and drops him in a powerbomb. Gravedigger is laying on the canvas, too, trying to catch his breath some. Slickie is a few feet away trying to recover. Both men start getting up and they go to the center and start trading blows. Gravedigger gets the upperhand due to being the more powerful of the two and pushes Slickie back into the ropes and irish whips him across the ring. Gravedigger jumps backwards, bounces off the ropes and spears Slickie in the center of the ring nearly cutting him in half.
Zach Davis: SPEAR! GORE! WHATEVER!
Gravedigger stands up, leans on the ropes and yells out at the crowd who start booing. Gravedigger rests as he watches Slickie T clutching his midsection. Slickie starts getting up and Gravedigger stalks him around the ring, kicking his arms out from under him each time he tries to get up. Gravedigger finally stops and lets Slickie get up off of the mat. Gravedigger irish whips Slickie across the ring and catches him and hits a huge slam in the middle of the ring. Gravedigger picks up Slickie T and has a satisified grin on his face.
Shannan Lerch: I don't like it when he gets that look on his face.
Gravedigger picks Slickie up and onto his shoulder, positioning him for the Toluca Slam. Gravedigger runs across the ring but Slickie manages to slide off and shoves Gravedigger in the process, causing him to crash into the opposite turnbuckle. Gravedigger stumbles back and Slickie grabs him from behind. The crowd pops as he starts twisting the both of them around for the T-Bone. He can't get it cinched in as Gravedigger starts yelling out. Gravedigger untwists the pair and powers out of it until Slickie is behind him again. Gravedigger holds onto Slickie and backs the both of them into a corner, impacting Slickie onto the turnbuckle. Slickie is out of it as Gravedigger turns around and grabs him, planting him on the mat with a Respecto. He covers Slickie.
Slickie manages to get his foot on the ropes.
Zach Davis: Great ring awareness by the former world champion.
Shannan Lerch: But will it be enough?
Gravedigger is frustrated and he grabs Slickie. He irish whips him and nails him with another spinebuster in the center of the ring. Gravedigger draws an invisible line across his throat and points to the nearby turnbuckle.
Shannan Lerch: What do we call this move? Death From Above or Toluca Drop?
Gravedigger scales the nearby turnbuckle and leaps off for a big elbow drop. Slickie T rolls out of the way causing Gravedigger to crash to the mat! The crowd gets to their feet as Gravedigger gets up a little shaken.
Slickie grabs Gravedigger from behind once more to go for the T-Bone, but Gravedigger notices the referee in the wrong angle and swings a leg backwards, hitting Slickie in the groin. The crowd boos as Slickie collapses to the mat. Gravedigger picks him up, places him on his shoulder. He takes a couple of steps around the ring before dropping down and nailing Slickie T with a Death Driver. He hooks the leg as the referee slides into position.
KICK OUT by Slickie T!
Zach Davis: CLOSE... can ANYTHING put Slickie T down?
Gravedigger can't believe it. The crowd cheers like crazy and starts rallying behind Slickie T. Slickie gets up and the two men start trading blows in the center of the ring. Slickie irish whips Gravedigger. Slickie goes for another Omerta, but Gravedigger ducks it! Gravedigger grabs Slickie from behind, powers him onto his shoulders and nails an Embalmer on the former world champion. Gravedigger falls onto Slickie and hooks the leg.
THREE! Gravedigger retains the world title!
Shannan Lerch: No.. damnit. Gravedigger retains.
Slickie T rolls out of the ring as Gravedigger stands up. The ref hands him the World Title.
Zach Davis: Slickie gave it his all, but tonight Gravedigger was the better man. It was a very even matchup, however.
Disappointed, Slickie heads to the back, though the fans give him a standing ovation as he leaves. In the ring, Gravedigger grabs a microphone.
Zach Davis: Hm? What does Gravedigger have to say?
Gravedigger: SETH.... LERCH.
The crowd oooh's, knowing something is up. Gravedigger has begun grinning.
Gravedigger: Get out here.. now. I have something to say, and you'll want to hear it.
Master of Puppets hits, and Seth steps out, a bit confused.
Shannan Lerch: I wish Jay Price was here to protect Seth, because this smells like a trap to me.
Seth walks to the ring and stops before getting inside.
Gravedigger: No, Seth. I'm not going to hurt you. At least not physically. I want you fully conscious for my big announcement. Get in here.
Seth shrugs and slides in, grabbing a mic of his own.
Seth Lerch: I've been through more beatdowns than I care to remember, so whatever. One more won't hurt. Yes, I know you're going to end up attacking me sooner or later before this is all over, I'm not stupid and I don't trust you for a second. But anyway, whats this big announcement, hm?
Gravedigger is grinning ear to ear now.
Gravedigger: I want to savor this moment, Seth. Please oblige me if I don't hurry up with it, I want this moment to last. Jayson, would you please come out here?
Jayson Stasiak, long time manager of the Dark Side, steps out from the back now. He's accompanied by a man in a business suit, carrying a briefcase.
Zach Davis: What is going on here?
Jayson and the man get into the ring. Seth is tapping his foot impatiently.
Seth Lerch: Come on, Gravedigger, I don't have all night. The PPV is almost over. Let's get this done with.
Gravedigger: Alright, Seth, you asked for it. It isn't a secret, ever since WCF reopened, it has been my mission to destroy it. From the early days with me as the owner to me decimating your roster and running Bobby Cairo and Chad Evans out of this place, everything I've done has been to make your life miserable and to destroy this company. And I LOVED it. I loved every second of it, Seth. But...
Gravedigger hesitates for a moment before continuing.
Gravedigger: ...but it isn't fun anymore. I've done everything there is to do. I've destroyed your top talent, nearly bankrupt the company, everything. I've spent well over a year dedicating myself to destroying this company and quite frankly, it isn't fun anymore. I'm done.
The crowd is buzzing.
Gravedigger: I'm done trying to destroy the WCF, Seth.
Seth Lerch: ...what? That's your big announcement, really?
Gravedigger: No, no. I'm getting there. You see, Seth, I'm done TRYING to close WCF.... here tonight... I'm actually going to DO it.
Seth's eyebrow raises.
Seth Lerch: Don't give me any Yoda "there is no try" bullshit, Gravedigger, what is this all about-
Jayson takes the mic now.
Jayson Stasiak: Let me explain, Seth. You see, thanks to your godawful legal knowledge and your idiotic tendency not to consult with lawyers, you never did notice a clause that remained in WCF's legal paperwork ever since Gravedigger took control. You see, Seth, Gravedigger retained the rights to completely liquify WCF's assets. This ring we're standing in, the ropes, the whole arena setups. The cameramen contracts, the announcer contracts, and of course, the talent contracts. Anything that the WCF corporation owns, Seth, Gravedigger has the right to sell to the highest bidder. And the proceeds go to Gravedigger himself, of course. To be honest, we don't really even care how much we sell this stuff for, because either way.... it isn't yours anymore.
Seth Lerch: No way, you can't be serious-
Jayson Stasiak: I brought this lawyer with for a reason, Seth, and we can discuss it after the show. But the truth is this: Aftermath is WCF's last ever PPV. This is the end, Seth. Its all over. Tonight, May 30th, WCF is closing its doors once more, NEVER to return.
Seth Lerch: NO. We're not going out like this. If we're closing, its going to be on MY terms-
Gravedigger: Look around, Seth. No one even CARES anymore. Jay Price isn't coming back. Torture is a shell of his former self. Chad Evans left. You should THANK me for pulling the trigger on this rotting corpse of a wrestling promotion so that you don't have to! But sadly, Seth, this PPV.. the final WCF PPV ever... is coming to an end. Goodnight, folks.
Seth is panicking. He quickly grabs the nearest camera.
Seth Lerch: NO. Don't listen to this man. WCF IS NOT CLOSING, we'll be back. TUNE IN NEXT MONDAY NI-
Aftermath fades to black.
