Explosion Intro

The Broken by Coheed and Cambria hits and Explosion is on the air! The crowd in the Frank Erwin Center roars as the camera pans around, getting a shot of their signs and whatnot. We go to the announcers, Zach and Shannan.

Zach Davis: Welcome to Explosion! We're in the middle of this set of PPVs, and tonight promises to be a good one.

Shannan Lerch: Not since One have we had a match with as much "big match feel" as tonight's bout between Hector Rodriguez and Chad Evans, Zach. I get goosebumps just thinking about it.

Zach Davis: The drama between Hector Rodriguez and Chad Evans is palpable after Evans stole Hector's manager, JJ. Not only that, but Hector and MS-13 have been causing riots, and last week burned down Seth Lerch's house.

Shannan Lerch: Yeah. And he didn't have any insurance. To be honest, my brother is kind of an idiot with these things.

Zach Davis: Remember when he let Gravedigger take over his own company somehow? Good times.

Shannan Lerch: We also have three matches in the Trilogy Cup Tournament, and I hear we have an announcement on what the winner of the Trilogy Cup will receive! How exciting.

Zach Davis: Oblivion vs Jay Price, Johnny Reb vs Ace Garrison, and Fort Knox vs Steve Thunder. Very interesting matchups.

Shannan Lerch: Oblivion and Jay Price.. Jay Price values that Hardcore Title over everything, including his other two prestigious Titles, the Elite Title and the People's Title. He isn't going to want to lose it, but let's be honest. Oblivion is a MANIAC.

Zach Davis: Our Television Title match was set to be Johnny Reb up against Jake Keeton, but Keeton got injured during a tag match, teaming with Garrison. Garrison then attacked his teammate and friend and made the injury even worse. Which was to his benefit, because now that Keeton can't compete, Garrison got to take his spot. One of the more dickish moves I've seen in WCF lately, for sure!

Shannan Lerch: You say dickish, I say smart. Garrison could win the Television Title tonight!

Zach Davis: But so could Johnny Reb.

Shannan Lerch: And our US Title match between Knox and Thunder should be a good one. Thunder has been a good United States Champ so far, but Knox has been doing well lately also. He's embroiled in a feud with Oblivion, but tonight he could win some gold. And you know Fort Knox loves gold.

Zach Davis: And a big Tag Team Titles match between the Man Made Gods and the Big Time Jerks... tables match, nonetheless! I think the Jerks may have the Gods' numbers tonight, they've been putting those two through tables all month.

Shannan Lerch: As much as I hate them, remember, CD and Tort are both former World Champions... they aren't going to lose those belts easy.

Zach Davis: And two Triple Threat opening matches. We've got Doc Henry versus D-Day versus Bishop... very interesting. Henry and D-Day have been feuding recently, over the Television Title, but Bishop's involvement is a new development.

Shannan Lerch: And in our opener, Ittrock, Kris Chambers, and Mickey Page are gonna go at it! This should be a good one!

Ittrock vs Kris Chambers vs Mickey Page

Kevin Rudolf's "I Made It" starts to play as smoke rolls through the arena and flashbulbs begin to flash throughout the crowd. Ittrock walks out through the curtain and out onto the stage, stopping to take a moment at the top of the ramp to look out at the crowd.

Kyle Steel: From Miami, Florida, weighing in at two hundred and forty pounds....ITTROCK.

Ittrock then makes his way down the ramp and slides into the ring before heading for the corner and climbing up the to the second turnbuckle. He poses on the turnbuckle as more flashbulbs pop and then hops down as he waits for his opponents.

Zach Davis: It's been rough for Ittrock as of late. 2 weeks ago he teamed with Kris Chambers to take on Chad Evans in a handicap match and was unsuccessful. And then last week he took part in a 3 on 1 handicap match against Jay Price and was set on fire while trapped in Seth Lerch's car.

Shannan Lerch: Luckily medical personnel was nearby and was able to get him out of the car and put out the fire before any serious damage was done. Still, what a horrible sight to witness.

The lights in the arena fade to black. After a brief moment the lights start to flash slowly as Bullet For My Valentine's "Domination" blasts out of the PA System. Kris Chambers walks out onto the stage area and stops at the top of the ramp. Pyro shoots off up in the air with smoke rising all around him.

Kyle Steel: From Atlanta, Georgia, weighing in at two hundred and forty five pounds....KRIS CHAMBERS.

He then walks through the smoke and walks down the aisle to the ring. Kris climbs up the steps and enters the ring through the ropes.

Shannan Lerch: Not much has been heard from Chambers since his loss in that handicap match against the World Champion. Many had been wondering if he was even going to be here tonight.

Zach Davis: Well he is here tonight Shannan, and I'm sure he's looking to avenge that loss.

The lights in the arena black out. Pinhead Gunpowder "West Side Highway" hits. A strobe light type flash rapidly lights up the stage in flickers. Mickey Page walks out onto the stage and stops, looking around at the audience with an intense focused stare. He begins jogging in place, eyes still jumping around on the crowd. A mixture of boos and cheers fills inside for Mickey, who, turns his attention to the ring sprinting down to it.

Kyle Steel: And from Phoenix, Arizona, weighing in at one hundred and forty five pounds......MICKEY PAGE.

Page slides underneath the bottom rope and pops to his feet, ready to knock somebody's fucking teeth out.

Zach Davis: And finally the newcomer Mickey Page. Last week we thought we were going to see his debut match...but his opponent never showed up to the arena. So technically, tonight is going to be his official in-ring debut.

Shannan Lerch: I'm excited to see what he can bring to the table. I've heard nothing but good things about his wrestling skills.

The referee checks with all three wrestlers and signals for the bell.

Zach Davis: And this match is officially underway!

Chambers makes his way out of his corner and walks up to both Page and Ittrock, mocking them both. Ittrock and Page look at each other...and then knock him down with a double punch to the head.

Shannan Lerch: Page and Ittrock seem to have an alliance going on early on in the match.

Zach Davis: Seems more like they both just wanted to shut up Chambers.

Ittrock lifts Chambers up off of the mat and spins him around for Page who proceeds to deliver a stiff kick to the balls.

Shannan Lerch: He calls that move Dirty Sex.

Zach Davis: You know Shannan, from what I've heard you yourself know a little about Dirty Se..

Shannan Lerch: Zach, shut your mouth before I do it for you.

Chambers doubles over in pain as he holds his crotch. Ittrock grabs him by his head, pulls him in and lifts him up for a delayed suplex before slamming him down for the MC Knockdown. He quickly hooks the leg for the pin.

Referee: One!

Two!

Th....

And Page jumps on Ittrock with a double axe handle to the back to break up the pin attempt. Ittrock gets to his feet and angrily pushes Page away before stepping up to his face.

Shannan Lerch: It seems like the alliance has ended as quickly as it began.

The two begin to trade shots. A right punch from Page leads to a stiff chop to the chest from Ittrock. The larger Ittrock eventually gains control of the exchange and whips Page into the ropes. Page hits them and comes back as Ittrock bends over, telegraphing a back body drop. Page sees it coming and stops in time. He then reaches down and smacks Ittrock across the back of the head which causes him to stand back up. As soon as he does. Page hits him with Dirty Sex, doubling him right back over. He then runs to the ropes, hits them and comes back with the Running With Scissors. The crowd is going nuts as he gets back to his feet and looks back and forth between Ittrock and Chambers. He makes his choice and heads for the corner before hopping up to the turnbuckle. He takes one last look at the mat...and then leaps off with a 450 splash onto Chambers for the pin.

Referee: One!

Two!

Ittrock is crawling toward the two to break up the pin.

Three!

Ittrock lowers his head to the mat in defeat as Page hops up to his feet with his arms raised in the air.

Zach Davis: And Mickey Page has just won his debut match here in WCF. Congratulations to the newcomer.

Shannan Lerch: And for both Ittrock and Kris Chambers it's another heartbreaking loss. You have to wonder when these guys are going to finally catch a break.

Page rolls out of the ring and heads up the ramp backward as he watches Ittrock and Chambers still lying in the ring trying to recover.

Doc Henry vs Bishop vs D-Day

Dr. Feelgood by Motley Crue hits, and Doc Henry walks out from the back. The fans boo as he walks to the ring before rolling in and standing in his corner.

Zach Davis: Here comes Doc Henry! One half of the former Tag Team Champs.

"Run This Town" by Jay Z plays and out from the back walks Bishop. Bishop throws his arms up as he looks around at the crowd. He walks down the ramp and climbs into the ring.

Shannan Lerch: And Bishop, also one half of a former Champion team.

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: And lastly, D-Day! Former TV Champ who defeated Anastasia Petrova for the belt.

The bell sounds. All three men look around the ring, eyeing each other up. Bishop makes the first move, running at D-Day and Clotheslining him down. D-Day hits the mat and Henry runs up behind Bishop and rolls him in a small package!

One!

Two!

No! Bishop gets out of it.

Shannan Lerch: Sneaky move by Doc Henry!

Bishop gets up and runs at Doc, but Doc sidesteps away and then hits a Dropkick! Bishop stumbles back. D-Day is up and joins Doc, both kicking Bishop in the gut and then hitting a Double Suplex!

Zach Davis: Henry and D-Day teaming up is unlikely, but it makes sense, to take down the much bigger Bishop.

Shannan Lerch: That is an alliance that won't last long, however.

Henry and D-Day both stomp at Bishop for several moments before Henry gets to attack D-Day. D-Day blocks it, however, and hits Henry with a few lefts and rights. D-Day throws Henry to the ropes and then hits a Judo Hiptoss as he comes back. D-Day pins him!

One!

Two!

No, Doc kicks out. D-Day picks Doc up and runs to the ropes, runs back and goes for a Swinging Neckbreaker. Once he hits it, however, Bishop runs at him and hits a Big Boot!

Zach Davis: OOF!

D-Day flies out of the ring. Bishop climbs out after him.

Shannan Lerch: This is a dangerous place to be if you're D-Day.. this is where Bishop loves to fight.

Bishop picks D-Day up and throws him to the guardrails, which D-Day hits with a thud. Bishop swings with a huge punch.

Zach Davis: That would knock D-Day out!

But D-Day ducks and hits Bishop with a punch of his own! Bishop then blocks D-Day's next punch and uppercuts him. And again, and again, and again, and again!

Shannan Lerch: Five uppercuts in a row!

Bishop turns around to the ring and is met with a Springboard Spear from Doc Henry!!

Zach Davis: OH MY GOD!

The crowd pops huge for Henry's crazy move. Both Henry and Bishop hit the outside of the ring hard. D-Day stumbles up and looks to capitalize by picking up Bishop and rolling him back into the ring and pinning him.

One!

Two!

NO! Bishop gets the shoulder up!

Shannan Lerch: Wow! How'd he do that?!

Zach Davis: Bishop is a huge man, Shannan. Difficult to keep his shoulders pinned down!

D-Day curses to himself. He then starts climbing to the top rope.

Shannan Lerch: What is D-Day going for here?

Zach Davis: A high risk move, duh. Most likely a Frogsplash, seeing as its one of his moves listed on his wcfwrestling.com profile.

Shannan Lerch: ..shut up, Zach.

Indeed, D-Day flies off with a Frogsplash! But Bishop rolls away at the nick of time! Bishop quickly gets to his feet and as D-Day stumbles up and kicks him in the gut. Bishop hits D-Day with a huge Powerbomb!

Zach Davis: NICE!

Bishop picks D-Day up, going for another Powerbomb, but Henry spins him around out of nowhere and hits the Gambler's Hand!

Shannan Lerch: DOC HENRY OUT OF NOWHERE! Beautiful move!

Zach Davis: Henry could have it here!

Henry begins climbing up to the top rope.

Shannan Lerch: Doc wants to go All In!

Doc flies off and hits the move!

ONE!

TWO!

D-Day quickly kicks Doc in the head and throws him out of the ring! He grabs Bishop, picks him up and hits the Dead and Forgotten! Pin!

One!

Two!

Three!

Zach Davis: D-Day gets the win!

The bell sounds and D-Day stands up to get his arm raised. Henry looks on from the outside, angry at his misfortune.

Shannan Lerch: I don't think this rivalry is going to end any time soon, Zach.

Huge bursts of pyro go off as"Super Villian" by Powerman 5000 starts playing and out walks Austin Adams and Angus Killian in the smoked filled entranceway. The fans start chanting BTJ as the duio makes its way to the ring. They walk towards the ring with icey glares as the fans keep chanting BTJ. Adams slides in under the top rope as Angus slides in under the bottom rope and they stand in the middle of the ring and give the BTJ sign, only the last three fingers up in the air. as another huge burst of pyro goes off.

Creeping Death looks up at the ref whose in the ring.

Zach Davis: Was it official?

Ref shakes his head no and it's not a fall.

Shannan Lerch: Rules are Creeping Death or Torture have to offensively put their opponents through the table and vice versa. Creeping Death didn't put Killian through the table, Killian put himself through the table. Therefore, both teams still have two!

Zach Davis: Remember it's not elimination so you'll still have to deal with both men once one of them goes through a table but each person must go through a table for there to be a winner.

Creeping Death picks up Adams and throws him into the ring. Adams hits the ropes and runs back at Creeping Death and CD hits a spinebuster! The crowd boos as Creeping Death snaps back to his feet, hits the ropes and hits a snap leg drop. Creeping Death picks up Adams and hits a back breaker. Torture slides a chair into the ring.

Adams slides in another one and Killian sets up that table in the opposite corner!

Zach Davis: Wow! Looking to win this right now!

Shannan Lerch: Well the last two weeks they've known what to do with Tables!

Zach Davis: True dat girl!

Adams slides in one last table and puts it in the middle of the ring. Both Killian and Adams try to set it up when Torture gets into the ring and shoves Killian into Creeping Death! Adams goes for a clothesline but Torture ducks and when both men turn around Torture hits the classic Torture right hands! The long, drawn out punch lands on the forehead! One! Two! Three! Four punches send Adams back into the corner. Torture goes for a fifth but Adams lifts up Torture and throws him out of the ring!

The ref clears the broken table out of the ring as other officials move the trash to the back. Killian rolls into the ring and stomps on CD and high fives Adams! They notice Torture on the outside setting up a table. Angus points to the table in the corner and Adams shakes his head no and to leave it there. Killian and Adams slide out of the ring and stand behind Torture. Torture sets up the table and thinks he has it all in the bag. Torture turns around and goes face to face with Angus and Adams. Torture looks shocked. He turns to the ring and notices Creeping Death trying to get to his feet in the corner. The ref is fully aware of the three men on the outside of the ring.

Zach Davis: YES! YES! YES!

Zach Davis: What?! What is he doing here?!

Snad Styles crawls out from under the ring and grabs Torture by his feet and drags him a few feet away from the table wreckage. Snad drags the broken table under the ring. Snad then stands up and jumps over the gaurdrail and runs through the crowd! Security chases after him but Snad leaves the building!

Shannan Lerch: Kidding me?!

Zach Davis: What the hell is going on?!?

Angus and Adams turn the ref around and walk him over to the side of hte ring, the ref notices Torture crawling but there is no table wreckage. The ref shrugs his shoulders and the match is continuing!

Zach Davis: WHAT?!!?

Shannan Lerch: THIS CROWD AND I ARE NOT VERY HAPPY!

Creeping Death steps out of the corner and Angus Killian hits a dropkick! Killian begins to trash talk Creeping Death when Torture slides into the ring and grabs Adams from behind and hits a German Suplex into the table in the corner! The ref sees that happen and rings the bell! The crowd boos hard and Torture rolls out of the ring as Three Days Grace hits the sound speakers! Angus turns around and notices Adams through the table out cold. CD rolls out of the ring and the ref gives The Tag Team Titles to CD and then the other one to Torture. CD and Torture meet up at the bottom of the ramp and celebrate but obviously in pain. The crowd continues to boo as Angus hits his knees in the middle of the ring in disappointment.

Zach Davis: God damn it! God damn the Man Made Gods!

Shannan Lerch: Excuse me.. I know we're on pay per view but that was bull shit!

Zach Davis: You said it best, Shannan. I have no idea how they escaped with that one! We all saw it! Big Time Jerks won! They put Torture and Creeping Death through a table!

Shannan Lerch: The ref didn't see it, and because of that we still have Gods.. as Tag Team Champions.

Torture and CD smile and leave the stage area as Angus helps Adams up to his feet and the crowd begins a slow applause.

"BIG TIME JERKS! BIG TIME JERKS! BIG TIME JERKS! BIG TIME JERKS!"

Zach Davis: Pfft. That just blows my mind.

Shannan Lerch: Well lets continue on then..

Trilogy Cup Announcement

Master of Puppets hits.

Zach Davis: Guess we're ready for tonight's announcement about the Trilogy Cup!

Shannan Lerch: Our three Cup matches are coming up shortly, so makes sense.

Seth steps out, looking none to happy. He walks to the ring without his trademark cockiness or swagger.

Zach Davis: Still not happy about his entire life being destroyed by MS-13, I suppose.

Seth enters the ring and grabs a mic.

Seth Lerch: I should probably be trying my best to put on a happy face, hype all you guys up for the Trilogy Cup and get you all ordering PPVs, seeing as I JUST HAD MY HOUSE BURN DOWN AND NEED MONEY DESPERATELY, but.. its tough. You know. SINCE MY HOUSE JUST GOT BURNT DOWN.

Quiet audience.

Seth Lerch: Yeah, no, boo me! Please! Have a good time, tell your friends, get them to come to the shows! BECAUSE I'M DIRT POOR NOW SO PLEASE PLEASE I'M BEGGING YOU PLEASE.

Finally, people start booing. Seth smiles at first but then seems to get offended by it and pulls out a flask and takes a swig from it.

Shannan Lerch: Is Seth... is he drunk?

Zach Davis: I think so, Shannan. I think so.

Seth Lerch: SHUT UP! TOO MUCH BOOING! I ACTUALLY WANTED YOU TO FEEL BAD AND CHEER ABOUT ME YOU DICKS!

That just gets more booing.

Seth Lerch: ALRIGHT GODDAMNIT WHATEVER. I'll just make my Trilogy Cup announcement. Seeing as there is a possibility that that fuckin -----

What Seth is saying is bleeped out for several seconds.

Seth Lerch: ...Hector Rodriguez could be World Champion after tonight..

Zach Davis: Uhhh. Seth just said a crapload of racist stuff. Dear God I hope they bleeped that.

Shannan Lerch: ...he gets like that when he's drunk sometimes... remind me to tell you about the story about Buckrubs sometime, Zach.

Seth Lerch: ..seeing as Hector Rodriguez could be World Champion tonight... and seeing as the Trilogy Cup Finals match will be all three of our secondary Champions up against each other... the winner will receive a WORLD TITLE MATCH at Blast!

The crowd pops!

Zach Davis: WOW!

Shannan Lerch: Are you really surprised, Zach? Come on. That was kinda obvious.

Zach Davis: Whatever, Shannan, I'm trying to put this announcement over. God damnit.

Seth Lerch: That is in addition to receiving the Trilogy Cup Trophy, of course. But anyway-

The lights go out.

Shannan Lerch: What now?!

Every now and then a light flashes but we can't tell what's going on... after several moments the lights come back on and Seth Lerch on the mat, holding his head in pain.

Shannan Lerch: DAMNIT SABU!

Zach Davis: I don't think that was Sabu, Shannan.

Shannan Lerch: Sting?

Zach Davis: Probably not.

Seth rolls out, cursing and kicking the apron before wincing and holding his head again. As he's leaving, he notices something in the ring.

Shannan Lerch: Is that what I think it is?

Seth grabs the item from the ring... it is a hot dog. He looks angrily at it and throws it into the audience before storming up the entryway.

Fort Knox walks into the ring and holds up his ringed fingers to the camera and the fingers spell FORT KNOX. Knox hesitates and turns to the announcing team of Shannan Lerch and Zach Davis.

Zach Davis: Fort Knox is staring RIGHT at us, again. That's two weeks in a row.

The camera pans onto Shannan Lerch, who has a blank look, across her face. Fort Knox winks at Shannan.

Zach Davis: Did Fort Knox wink at you, again?

Shannan Lerch: It looks like he did, didn't he?

Zach Davis: That's been two weeks in a row, he has winked at you.

Get your shine on

Fort Knox poses, in the center of the ring, as golden fireworks shoot off from the ring post.

Get your shine on

Shannan Lerch: Hey, at least he has great taste!

Fort Knox, then hands his gold to the ringside person and tells him...

Fort Knox(talking to ringside attendee): You better NOT lose this gold. You know what could happen, if anything happens to the gold, right.

The ring side attendee shakes his head yes.

Knox walks away from the ropes. Knox puts on his gloves and gets ready to fight.

"Down with the Sickness" by Disturbed begins to play...

The Frank Irwin Center nearly explodes with mostly cheers, mixed in with a few boos.

Drowning deep in my sea of loathing
Broken your servant I kneel

As the music begins to play, after a few seconds, there is no Steve Thunder.

Zach Davis: There's the United States Champion"s entrance music, but where is the champion?

It seems what's left of my human side
Is slowly changing in me

Crowd: WE WANT THUNDER!!! <clap-clap> <clap-clap-clap>

Looking at my own reflection
When suddenly it changes
Violently it changes (oh no)

Shannan Lerch: You can sense, who the crowd will back, tonight.

There is no turning back now
You've woken up the demon in me

Crowd: WE WANT THUNDER!!! <clap-clap> <clap-clap-clap>

Get up, come on get down with the sickness

Crowd: WE WANT THUNDER!!! <clap-clap> <clap-clap-clap>

Get up, come on get down with the sickness

Most of the crowd, keeps looking around and stillthere are no signs of the United States Champion.

Get up, come on get down with the sickness

Crowd: THUNDER!! THUNDER!!! THUNDER!!! THUNDER!!!

Zach Davis: With no champion, will Fort Knox be declared the new US Champion?

Fort Knox walks away from the corner and is holding up his arms....

Shannan Lerch: apparently, Fort Knox thinks so.

Fort Knox: Where's the champ?! I knew it!! He's afraid of me!

Fort Knox, with a big smile, on his face, runs to a nearby corner and climbs up to the second turnbuckle. Knox holds out his arms and tilts his head to the left. The arena begins to fill up with anit-Fort Knox banter...

Crowd: BOO-OO-OO!!

Fort Knox yells back at the crowd.

Fort Knox: You boo me, because I am.... BETTER THAN YOU!!!

Crowd: YOU SUCK!!! YOU SUCK!!! YOU SUCK!!! YOU SUCK!!!

Zach Davis: I think Stanley Moser is going to do it.

Shannan Lerch: I think he HAS no choice. Look, Fort Knox knows it too.

Fort Knox is in the center, of the ring, raising his right arm and yelling something at the referee...

Fort Knox: Go ahead and do it Stanley Moser!! Raise my hand and call me the new United States Champion!!

Crowd: BOO-OO-OO-OO-OO!!!

Zach Davis: The crowd is NOT liking this one bit!!

Shannan Lerch: Not at all!! In fact, I think the crowd is about to let us know how they feel about it....

Crowd: BULLSH*T!! BULLSH*T!! BULLSH*T!! BULLSH*T!!

Then exactly at that very second. Stanley Moser is leaning through the ropes, talking with the ring announcer Kyle Steel....

Disturbed lead singer David Draiman: OU-U-U-U!! AH-AH-AH-AH-H-H-H!!!

The crowd explodes with cheers. As Fort Knox stands in the center of the ring, he quickly turns his head to the right, with a pissed look on his face. Knox looks down at the aisle, towards the entrance ramp.

Zach Davis: Now, here comes the US Champion!!

Drowning deep in my sea of loathing
Broken your servant I kneel

It seems what's left of my human side
Is slowly changing in me...

An enraged Fort Knox rushes over to the ropes. He grabs the top rope and begins to push down on the top rope, as he stare towards the direction, of the entrance ramp. Again no Steve Thunder. As Fort Knox and Stanley Moser keeps looking at the entrance ramp, the arena explodes with cheers. Steve Thunder crawls from under the ring, Steve Thunder is wearing a big t-shirt, that is cut up the sides.

Zach Davis: Steve Thunder!! Steve Thunder!! The United States Champion is here!!

The US Champion removes the t-shirt. Steve Thunder is wearing knee high shinguard boots with kneepads, 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. As Fort Knox is wondering why the crowd is cheering, backs away from the ropes that are close to the ring entrance with his arm extended...

Fort Knox: What kind of crap is this!?!? Moser, are you gonna declare me champion or what!?!?

At that point, Steve Thunder jumps up on the ring apron and waits...

Zach Davis: What is the champion waiting for?

Shannan Lerch: Watch...

As the challenger turns around and notices the champion. Knox rushes towards him. Thunder grabs the top rope, with both hands and jumps on top of the top rope and lunges Fort Knox with a flying clothesline, connecting and knocking down the challenger, in the process.

Shannan Lerch: Now!! The match can continue!!

Stanley Moser instructs the timekeeper to ring the bell...

DING DING DING!

The referee brings his two index fingers together....

Stanley Moser: Let's get this match started!!

The crowd reacts with extreme cheering!!

Crowd: Hell yeah!!! Hell yeah!! Hell yeah!! Hell yeah!!!

Fort Knox kicks the bottom rope out of frustration!!

Shannan Lerch: Looks like this match is a go.

The two combatants circle the ring, staring at one another.

Fort Knox: Why couldn't you stay away. I was champion!! I hate you!

Steve Thunder just grins as he grabs a hold the top rope, as he stomps down with his right boot. The crowd stomps and claps along. Thunder does it again, grabbing the top ringrope and stomping down onto the mat. The champion does it again, but faster, then again faster, then faster, until he has one steady tempo as he gets the crowd excited, as they continue to stomp and clap as Knox and Thunder circle each other as they lock up, in the center of the ring.

Zach Davis: Knox has a slight size difference on the champion, not by much.

Shannan Lerch: But, enough to push back the champion into a corner. Referee Stanley Moser separates the two.

Zach Davis: Oh, wow. clean break by the challenger.

Knox holds up his hands and arms, as he walks away. Steve Thunder has a confused look, on his face as they circle each other, once again. The impact they make, in the center of the ring, as they lock-up, almost knocks the Frank Irwin Center off it's foundation.

Shannan Lerch: A quick arm drag by the challenger.

Fort Knox gives a big smile towards the champion, as he rubs his palms down his legs, as he crouches to look at the champion.

Zach Davis: Knox quickly walks over to Thunder, but...

THUD!

The champion grabs the challenger's ankles and pulls tthe legs from under Knox, making him crash down to the mat. Thunder quickly gets to his feet.

Shannan Lerch: The champion begins to stomp a mudhole into Fort Knox.

The referee tell Thunder to get away from the ropes...

Stanley Moser: You have to the count of five to let go of the ropes.... ONE!! TWO!!

Steve Thunder continues to stomp down onto Fort Knox.

Stanley Moser: THREE!! FOUR!!!

The United States Champion finally let's go, of the ropes and turns to the center of the ring, as he throws his arms in the air. The crowd cheers...

Crowd: THUNDER!!! THUNDER!! THUNDER!! THUNDER!!

As Fort Knox is slowly standing, the champion is standing near the far corner, facing in the direction of the announcer's table, grabbing the top ring rope, stomping his right boot down onto the mat.

Shannan Lerch: It looks like it's time to control the climate, because it's Climate Control time!!

Steve Thunder is somewhat attempting the Climate Control, when Fort Knox sees it, before hand and ducks out of the ring and out of the ring. Knox's back is to the entrance ramp. Knox throws his arms towards the ring and at the champion.

Zach Davis: I think fort Knox has had enough!

Shannan Lerch: Already?!? The match has barely started and the challenger is bailing already?

The champion rushes towards the ring, as Fort Knox begins to walk back up the aisle, but looks back. Steve Thunder flies through the air with a springboard moonsault, crashing down hard onto Fort Knox, as both fall hard onto the ringside area.

Crowd: HOLY SH*T!!! HOLY SH*T!!! HOLY SH*T!!! HOLY SH*T!!!

Both men are slow to get up.

Zach Davis: Both men slowly get up, as Fort Knox throws a right fist, but is block by the United States Champion, Steve Thunder.

Thunder connects with a left fist, then another, then another left fist, then Thunder nails Knox with a dropkick to the jaw, knocking down the challenger.

Shannan Lerch: The champion walks over to the challenger....

CLANG!

Zach Davis: But, the challenger grabs the champion, by his tights and Steve Thunder crashing into the ringside barrier. The referee continues the count...

Stanley Moser: Two!!! Three!!

Fort Knox stomps down onto the champion

Stanley Moser: Six!! Seven!!

Fort Knox hears the ring count and runs towards the ring, but...

TRIP!

Shannan Lerch: The champion trips up Knox and he attempts to get back into the ring, but Knox prevents Thunder to get back in the ring

Stanley Moser: Eight!! Nine!!

By that time bother Knox and Thunder notice the ring count and hauls butt to the ring and slide under the ringropes. preventing the countout. The crowd sighs in relief.

Zach Davis: The two hook up, once again...

THUD!

Shannan Lerch: This time it's Steve Thunder with an arm drag onto Fort Knox.

Kneeling, near the center, of the ring, Fort Knox is yelling at the referee...

Fort Knox: C'mon referee. You better start calling a better match, he just pulled my damn hair!!

Stanley Moser takes offense to that and gets into Fort Knox's face.

Zach Davis: Oh my God!! Knox just shoved senior referee Stanley Moser, in the chest.

The referee just smiled and pushes Fort Knox. The challenger didn;t see Steve Thunder behind him, as the champion grabs ahold of the challenger;s midsection and picks him up and...

WHAM!

Fort Knox flies halfway across the ring, backwards, as Steve Thunder just executed a picture perfect release German suplex.

Zach Davis: Fort Knox is lying motionless, on the mat. Steve Thunder sees the perfect opportunity.

Shannan Lerch: The champion bounces off the ropes, in front of us, and flies across the ring and....

SWOOP! WHAM!

Shannan Lerch: Rolling Thunder!!

Zach Davis: Thunder goes in for a pin attempt!!!

Stanley Moser goes in for the count.

Crowd: On-

Shannan Lerch: Not even a one count.

With perfect instinct, Knox rolls out of the ring...

Zach Davis: That's not gonna stop Steve Thun-...

As Zach Davis was saying the exact remark, the champion races towards the ropes near the announce team and bounces, as races towards the ropes, that are facing the entrance ramp and flips over the top rope.

FLING! FLIP! WHAM!

Shannan Lerch: Steve Thunder just did a suicide dive over the top rope, attempting to land on Fort Knox.

Zach Davis: But, unfortunately, he missed and lands hard on the ringside area.

Fort Knox stands up and big to land some hard stomps onto the ribcage of the champion. Knox picks up Thunder and get him into a suplex position...

WHAM! WHAM! WHAM!

Shannan Lerch: Oh my God!! That was three quick rolling snap suplexes executed beautifully by Fort Knox.

Knox picks up Thunder over his head....

Zach Davis: Oh my God, what does Fort Knox have in mind, here?

Knox military presses Thunder...

WHAM!!!

Zach Davis: OH MY GOD!!!

Crowd: You killed Thunder!!! <clap-clap> <clap-clap-clap> You killed Thunder!!! <clap-clap> <clap-clap-clap> You killed Thunder!!! <clap-clap> <clap-clap-clap>

Knox slowly poses for the booing crowd.

Crowd: YOU SUCK!!! YOU SUCK!!! YOU SUCK!!! YOU SUCK!!!

Fort Knox climbs back into the ring and immediately runs towards the corner. Knox methodically waits, as the champion slowly stands up. Out of nowhere....

WHAM!!

Shannan Lerch: Missle dropkick, off the top rope. Nailing Steve Thunder in the face, in the process!!

Zach Davis: But, apparently that wasn't enough...

Fort Knox hobbles to back inside the ring and climbs back up the turnbuckle, to the top turnbuckle and again waits, methodically.

Shannan Lerch: Both men are tired and beat up, but at this moment it the United States Champion feeling the worst of it, right now.

Thunder stands up and Knox flies through the air and....

WHAM!!

Zach Davis: Holy Cow!!

Shannan Lerch: Holy cow?!?

Zach Davis: Yes!! Holy Cow!!! Fort Knox just nailed Thunder with a flying sunset flip off the top turnbuckle!!

Shannan Lerch: Both men, have put into the match 110% effort, tonight and the fans are noticing it...

Crowd: This match is awesome!! This match is awesome!! <clap-clap> <clap-clap-clap> This match is awesome!! <clap-clap> <clap-clap-clap> This match is awesome!! <clap-clap> <clap-clap-clap>

Both men are not moving. They are motionless, not moving one single finger.

Zach Davis: I think they finally did it!! They finally, totally knocked each other out!!

Shannan Lerch: Stanley Moser with the count...

Stanley Moser, near the ropes, start the count-out, as he indicates with his fingers...

Stanley Moser: ONE!!! TWO!!! THREE!!! FOUR!!!

Zach Davis: I think this match might end up, as a countout!

Shannan Lerch: I think you might be right, Zach!! They are not moving!

The crowd is in a hush, as the referee continues his count...

Stanley Moser: FIVE!!! SIX!!!

Both men start to move slowly. The crowd begins to stir. They see both men trying to get to their feet. The crowd begins to get louder, as Stanley Moser continues to count....

Stanley Moser: SEVEN!! EIGHT!!

Both men finally stand up and try to enter the ring. Steve Thunder gets to the ring apron, barely hanging onto the ringropes. Stanley Moser motions to Thunder to get back into the ring.

Shannan Lerch: The champion is completely tired, as the referee is telling him to get back into the ring, but the champion is not responding.

Zach Davis: The champion collapses and falls into the ring.

The referee tends to the champion. Fort Knox attempts to get onto the ring apron, when...

WHAM!!!

One of the Gathering just nailed fort Knox with a stop sign, causing Fort Knox to fall through the ring ropes and into the ring.

Shannan Lerch: The referee didn't see that creepy little clown thingy attack fort Knox with a stop sign.

Steve Thunder looks at a fallen Fort Knox and picks him up.

Zach Davis: Thunder grabs Fort Knox in a reverse DDT and quickly spins his body along with Fort Knox's body.

Shannan Lerch: The champion lands on his back, he plants Fort Knox's head with the same impact point as a DDT.

Zach Davis: STATIC SHOCK!! STATIC SHOCK!!

Steve Thunder goes in for the pin, as the referee Stanley moser goes in for the count...

Crowd: ONE!!

Crowd: TWO!!

Crowd: THREE-EE-EE!!!

DING-DING-DING!!

Zach Davis: That's it. Steve Thunder wins the match!!

Shannan Lerch: With an assist fromone of The Gathering!!!

The crowd explodes with cheers as Oblivion rolls in the ring and climbs up to the top turnbuckle and flies in the air and lands with a flying senton bomb!!!

Zach Davis: Where did Oblivion come from!!!

Oblivion grabs for a mic!!

Oblivion: You didn't think I forgot about you, huh?!?! Well, I haven't forgot about you!! I want my Cage Match against you!! Seth Lerch!! I demand a cage match against Fort Knox!! NOW-OW-OW!!

Oblivion licks Fort Knox, before he spits on Fort Knox as security comes, from the back. Oblivion smiles, as he leaves the ring. Oblivion jumps over the security railing, laughing!!


Johnny Reb vs Ace Garrison
Trilogy Cup Tournament Match

Shannan Lerch: Our next match was originally supposed to feature Jake Keeton, defending the Television Title against the Inveterate Confederate, Johnny Reb. Unfortunately for Keeton, he trusted the wrong man.

Zach Davis: That’s right, Shannan. After forming an alliance with the former TV Champ, Ace Garrison attacked and injured Keeton, securing himself a spot in the Trilogy Cup Tournament, as well as a shot at the TV Title.

Shannan Lerch: And there’s been no love lost between Reb and Garrison since then. Both these guys desperately want to advance in the Tournament. Garrison’s a hot commodity right now, but Johnny Reb has always been a solid competitor. It’s gonna come down to who wants it more.

Zach Davis: That may be, Shannan, but I think Reb has the edge when it comes to experience. He’s been equally successful in both tag and singles competition, and the guy’s not afraid to take risks.

Shannan Lerch: Yeah, but Ace Garrison’s just flat out mean, nasty, and underhanded.

Zach Davis: Sounds like your kinda guy.

Kyle Steel: The following is a Trilogy Cup Tournament match, for the WCF Television Title, scheduled for one fall! First to the ring, from Cincinnati, Ohio…. ACE GARRISON!!!

"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. 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: And his opponent… From Sweet Water, Alabama…. The Inveterate Confederate, JOHNNY REB!!!

The opening chords of "Bad Company" by Bad Company filter through the arena. The stage and the surrounding area go dark. As the actual lyrics begin, blue lights illuminate a figure dressed in a grey Confederate frock coat and an officer's slouch hat. He is accompanied by his manager, Don Jesus Luis de Guadalupe.

Company,
Always on the run.

He steps out onto the ramp and the stage lights return to normal.

Destiny,
Is the rising sun.

Johnny’s appearance draws a mixed reaction from the crowd, with more than half the fans solidly behind him.

I was born 6-gun in my hand,
Behind a gun, I make my final stand.

The Inveterate Confederate starts down the ramp, slowly, and pauses halfway down.

That's why they call me...

Suddenly, a fountain of pyros erupts behind him to coincide with the change in the song's tempo. Johnny raises his hands and lifts his head, making a beckoning motion, reveling in the crowd’s attentions.

Bad Company. And I can't deny,
Bad Company, til the day I die.

Reb lowers his arms and continues toward the ring.

Rebel souls.
Deserters we are called,
Chose a gun
And threw away the sun.

Now these towns,
They all know our name.
6-gun sound...
Is our claim to fame.

Johnny walks up the steel steps. He stalks to the far corner and climbs onto the second turnbuckle, posing for the crowd.

I can hear them say..
Bad Company, and I won’t deny.
Bad. Bad Company, til the day I die.

The music fades away as Johnny hops off the turnbuckle and removes the hat and coat, handing them off to his manager.

Shannan Lerch: And the crowd here in Austin loves Johnny Reb!

The bell rings. Both men circle the ring, sizing each other up. All of a sudden, Ace steps in and swings a vicious right hand. Johnny backs just out of his reach, grinning.

Zach Davis: Good thing Reb’s so quick. A shot like that this early in the match could spell doom for the Inveterate Confederate.

Garrison shoots Johnny a look of annoyance. Johnny looks out at the audience, shrugs, and leans in, pointing at his jaw as if offering Ace a free shot at him. Garrison, however, isn’t going to fall for it. He shakes his head and points at Johnny, telling him to “fight like a man.” Reb smiles, backing toward the ropes. Realizing his mistake, Ace is after him in an instant.

Shannan Lerch: That was almost disastrous for Ace Garrison…

But Johnny sees him coming and changes direction, running headlong at his opponent. Both men collide in the middle of the ring. Reb is back on his feet first. He looks down at Garrison, smiles, and gets one arm around each of his legs. Johnny falls straight back, catapulting Ace into the ropes.

Zach Davis: I think you spoke too soon, Shannan. Catapult from Reb, and now he’s running across the ring…what is he thinking?

Johnny bounces off the ropes on the opposite side from his opponent, hits the middle of the ring, and…

Shannan Lerch: Dropkick! Johnny Reb just sent Ace Garrison out of the ring. He is definitely in control here tonight!

Reb climbs the ropes, staring down at Ace Garrison. The audience knows what’s coming, cheering their encouragement. Johnny spreads his arms wide, as if absorbing all the attention for just a moment…then dives off the top rope, landing squarely on his opponent.

Zach Davis: Things are not looking good for Ace Garrison!

Outside the ring, Johnny hauls a dazed Garrison to his feet, while the referee yells at the competitors to get back into the ring. Reb complies, rolling Garrison in under the ropes. Then, he gets back onto the ring apron and starts climbing again.

Shannan Lerch: Oh my god…hasn’t Ace taken enough abuse…?

Apparently, he has. Garrison sees where Johnny is going, and grabs the ropes, shaking them. Reb falls, but his foot gets caught under the top rope, and he finds himself hanging upside down in the ring. An evil grin spreads across Garrison’s face. He immediately starts laying boots to Johnny.

Zach Davis: One risk too many for the Inveterate Confederate. Looks like he’s really in trouble now!

The ref backs Ace away from Reb, stopping the onslaught. Johnny tries desperately to get himself untangled. But before he can, Garrison is after him again, this time putting a boot right across his throat. Helpless, Reb grabs the ankle, trying to pry Ace off, as the ref starts counting. At four, Garrison backs away again, throwing his hands up and looking innocent. The ref kneels to check on Reb, but is forced to get out of the way quickly as Garrison comes running in and delivers a dropkick of his own.

Shannan Lerch: There’s a little payback for earlier.

Zach Davis: The only good thing about that is… it finally got Johnny loose from the ropes.

Indeed, Reb crashes to the mats on the outside, his chest heaving as he tries to catch his breath. As the referee begins another ten-count, Garrison leans over the ropes, taunting Johnny. Not content to let him be counted out, however, Ace slips out and rolls Johnny back into the ring.

Shannan Lerch: Looks like Ace isn’t done yet…

Garrison gets Reb to his feet, applies a facelock, and nails him with a picture-perfect DDT. Ace immediately picks Johnny up again, looking for another DDT. But with split-second timing, Reb slips out of the hold and, instead, rolls Garrison up in a small package. The ref counts.

One …

Tw – Kickout!

Zach Davis: Only a two-count for Reb, but it’s the first near fall of this match. Not bad, considering the beating he just took! And he’s going for the turnbuckle! I don’t believe it! It looks like… a diving fist drop!

Shannan Lerch: But Garrison sees it coming and gets out of the way.

Johnny tries to correct in mid-flight, and ends up landing awkwardly on his feet. Ace is there in an instant, trying to take advantage of the situation. He swings at Reb. Johnny blocks, and pretty soon, the two men are brawling in the middle of the ring. After several seconds, Reb gets the upper hand, his fist crashing into Garrison’s jaw, which sends Ace staggering back. Immediately, Johnny goes for the turnbuckle again.

Zach Davis: I think I know what’s coming, Shannan!

And so does the crowd, who are on their feet, cheering. Johnny dives off the top turnbuckle.

Shannan Lerch: Saturday Night Special! Ace Garrison is down, possibly for good. I always wondered, though, Zach… why does he call it that? Our shows are on Mondays.

Zach Davis: If I had to guess, I’d say there are two reasons, Shannan. “Saturday Night Special” is the name of a Lynyrd Skynyrd song. It’s also slang for a cheap handgun. And as you can see, it has a similar effect. There’s the cover…

One …

Two …

Thr – No! Garrison gets a shoulder up.

Ace shoves Johnny away from him and gets to his feet. Both men are looking far worse for the wear at this point. Garrison backs up a little more, then runs straight at Reb, bulldogging him down to the mat. With Reb down, Ace wraps an arm around Johnny’s neck, and applies a rear naked choke.

Shannan Lerch: This could be it, Zach! That’s the Final Clutch, Garrison’s finisher!

In the middle of the ring, far from the ropes, Johnny struggles against the hold. Outside, Don Jesus pounds on the mat, urging Johnny to get out of it.

Zach Davis: I think you’re right, Shannan. The more you resist a move like this, the more effective it becomes.

The ref kneels, asking Johnny if he’d like to tap. Johnny shakes his head, still straining. But before long, his efforts become weaker… and weaker still… until he finally goes completely limp. The referee checks on him again, then signals for the bell.

Shannan Lerch: That’s it! Ace Garrison advances in the Trilogy Cup Tournament and claims the Television Title!

Garrison lets go of the hold and stands up, grinning from ear to ear. He grabs the Television Title from the ref and raises it to a chorus of booing.

Zach Davis: Ace Garrison went from not having a match at Explosion to walking out of it with the Television Title... and all he had to do was turn his back on a friend and then severely injure him. Maybe nice guys DO finish last.

Garrison leaves the ring, clutching his belt, and heads to the back. Doc Henry is in the arena and he's trying to wake Reb up as we go to a video package.


Oblivion vs Jay Price
Trilogy Cup Tournament Match

Zach Davis: According to my trusty list here, We have the Hardcore Title Match! The Hardcore champ Jay Price takes on the monster that is Oblivion.

Shannan Lerch: Price is on a huge wave of success, as he is newest inductee into the WcF "Triple Champion" club.

Zach Davis: Mmmm, triple cannelloni club sandwich.

Shannan Lerch: What, are you some deviant cross between Homer Simpson and Garfield now?

Zach Davis: You're..the.. cross between..

The main lights in the arena go out as the stage, ramp and ring are lit up with an ominous red glow. The jumbo-tron flickers on and begins flashing the words "The Future" and "Is Now" in bold red letters.

Shannan Lerch: What were you going to say?

Zach Davis: Shhh. Shhh. Stuffs happening.

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 Death, 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 People's Championship and Elite Championship are connected together behind his neck as they drape over his shoulders, while the WCF Hardcore Championship 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, occasionally stopping to threaten a fan or to flip off small children as the spotlight follows him the entire way.

Shannan Lerch: Dang, look at all that gold! I bet Mr.T is spinning in his grave.

Zach Davis: Mr.T Died! Oh dear God. I.. you just shattered my whole life.

Finally Price 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 Hardcore Title from his waist and holds it high over his head with both hands, mocking the crowds chants as he shows off his gold. Then he sets the belt down on the top turnbuckle, hops down out of the corner, drapes the Elite and People's Titles over the top rope and then removes his sweatshirt before throwing it into the crowd. As they rip it to shreds, Price hands over all three titles to the referee who nearly falls over from the massive amount of weight. Price then stretches in the corner to warm up for the match as his music cuts and the lights come back to normal.

Shannan Lerch: So what do you think Jay needs to do to beat Oblivion here?

Zach Davis: Well, first of all, Jay needs to beat Oblivion up real good. Then, I'd go for the pin.

Shannan Lerch: Brilliant. Simply a stunning analysis.

Zach Davis: 40 years in the biz, babe.

Shannan Lerch: The biz, huh?

Zach Davis: Yep.

The lights go out, in the arena. In the name of God by Slayer begins to play. As the thunderous combination of the deafening and earsplitting guitars, bass, and drums explode through the arena's speakers, white strobe lights begin to flash, in the arena. Smoke fills the entrance stage and ramp. There is a mixture of cheers and boos, as the crowd stand on their feet. The crowd, near the entrance way, rush toward the security railings.

I want to
Invite you
Welcome you

Oblivion starts to slowly slink through the smoke. The Dark One is low to the ground, with his arms extended outward.

To my hate
To my scorn
To myself

As Oblivion continues to slink out to the entrance area, it's arms are extended, with it's index fingers pointing outward. A half dozen members of The Gathering, dressed in dark colored ICP inspired clown outfits, slink and swarm around Oblivion, as the strobe lights continue to flash along with the thrashing music...

Saturate you
Infest you
Betray you

The mixture of boos and more cheers, continue to echo throughout the arena. The Society follows behind Oblivion. All are wearing black.

Stimulate you
So eager for my lies
For my li-i-ies... Li-i-ies!!
Lies... in the name of Go-o-o-od!!!

The guitar solo begins. The strobe lights flash along with the guitar. Pyro sets off, along the length of the entrance ramp. The Society follows behind Oblivion. All are wearing black. Mini Ace begins to skip and slowly slink around and begins to slam dance. He thrashes around. Melissa continues to skip past the cameraman, but with a scowl, as she chews her gum and blows out a huge bubble, in front of the camera. Some, of the bubble landing on the camera. Through the bubble covered camera, you can see her walking away looking at the camera, still scowling.

Zach Davis: There is something sexy about that Melissa.

Shannan Lerch: Yeah, underneath all that scary exterior, I'm sure she's a freakin' blast!

Oblivion, slowly walks down the aisle. Oblivion, with it's arms extended outward, it spins around. The Gathering, in six strategically placed areas, around Oblivion, spin around, as well. Walking behind them is, The Dark Angel.

I take you
I play you
Invade you

Once they get to ringside, Mini Ace slides into the ring. He runs all over the ring, in his dark colored ring attire. Oblivion tilts his head to the right, popping his neck in the process, as he holds his arms outward. Red, black, and white pyro explodes all over the stage, ramp, and parts, of the arena.

Lacerate you
I scar your
Innocence

Melissa and Dark Angel walks around the right side, of the ring. Oblivion walks to the left. Oblivion slides under the ring ropes. Oblivion walks to the center, of the ring. The Dark Angel walks over to a corner. Melissa continues to skip around the ring, as she approaches a corner.

Masticate you
Ingest you
Become you

Mini Ace walks up to a corner and climbs up to the bottom turnbuckle. Everyone slaps, with both hands, two hard times on the turnbuckles. On the third double hand slap, on the turnbuckles, pyro shoots out from the tops, of the ring posts. Dark Angel, jumps down and walks over to Oblivion.

Defenseless
I fill your emptiness
With my lie-ie-ies... li-i-i-ies!!!

Lies in the name of God

Guitar solo...

Melissa continue to skip around. The Gathering runs around the ring. With Oblivion in the center, of the ring. Mini Ace begins to run with the chaotic Gathering....

In this world of shit I exist
Perfect world conforms I resist
Disconnect the nerves from the spine
Desecrate the walls of the mind

As The Gathering continues to race around the ring, the strobes and lasers continue to flash. Mini Ace is standing in front of him. The Dark Angel is standing on Oblivion's left side. Melissa is still skipping around. Several hundred cameras flash throughout the arena. Oblivion strikes a muscular pose.

Short guitar thrashing... As strobe, lasers, and pyro flash throughout the arena.

Through these eyes no love is alive
Through these eyes unrest never dies
Through these lies compassion is lost
Through these lies await the Ungod

Short guitar thrashing

Antichrist is the name of God!!!
Antichrist is the name of God!!!
Antichrist is the name of God!!!
Antichrist is the name of Go-o-od!!!

A thrashing guitar solo begins, as the explosions of pyro, flashes of strobe lights and streaks of lasers flash around the ring. Melissa, Dark Angel, The Gathering, and Mini Ace leave Oblivion's side. Through the strobe lights, you can see The Society, except for Oblivion, run around the ring, chaotically, as The Gathering throws each other in the air. Oblivion is still standing, in the center, of the ring. It has it's arms out with it's head tilted back and smoke begins to fill and surround the ring.

Lies in the name of God!!!!!

Shannan Lerch: Oh my God!!! I think I need a cigarette after an entrance like that!!

Zach Davis is sweating and breathing heavy, with a wild look in his eyes!

The Gathering slink and crawl out the ring. Mini Ace runs to a nearby corner and climbs up the turnbuckles. Mini Ace throws his arms in the air. Then, he takes off his shirt....

Zach Davis: Oh my God, Mini Ace is stripping!

Mini Ace displays a new Oblivion t-shirt. In red bold lettering, the words THE SOCIETY is below the neckline. A picture of the members of The Society is below the words THE SOCIETY. Below the picture, of The Society is the words in red lettering "You can choke on that!!" On the back of the shirt is the phrase in gold lettering... The Society are your Gods!!Zach Davis: Somewhere, hippies are weeping openly.

Shannan Lerch: Because of the Slayer?

Zach Davis: No, well, maybe that too, but I was just checking my twitter updates and Dirty_Hippy91's mom just passed away. He's torn up something fierce.

Shannan Lerch: Get you head in the game, Zach. This is a legendary match. Do what you're paid to do.

Zach Davis: Only if I can dedicate my commentative performance to the memory of Dirty_Hippy91's mom.

Shannan Lerch: Whatever you gotta do.

Jay Price and Oblivion approach the center of the ring.

Ding-Ding

Zach Davis: There's the bell. Lets see how fast this turns into a bloodbath.

Shannan Lerch: Yea, these two fighters are about to tear each other apart!

Jay Price breaks the stare down by viciously slapping Oblivion across the face. Oblivion head rocks, but he doesn't falter. Jay Price back-steps into the ropes and propels himself at Oblivion, connecting with a strong dropkick to Oblivions chest. Oblivion stumbles back as Price bounces back up to his feet. Price runs at the ropes to Oblivions left and springboards off the middle rope, sling-shotting a deadly accurate missile dropkick across the side of Oblivions knee. Oblivion crashes to one knee as Jay backward rolls to his feet and hops up to the top turnbuckle. He smirks at the crowd before he leaps into the air. Oblivion rolls out of the way just as Price's leg drop crashes down to the mat. Oblivion capitalizes by raining down a flurry of stomps onto the momentarily stunned Jay Price. Jay manages to block a few of the stomps and rolls under the ropes to the outside. Oblivion slides out right behind him. Price jams his thumb into Oblivions right eye.
Oblivion roars and covers it in pain. Jay drops to one knee and uppercuts Oblivion in the balls. Oblivion's roar escalates and he stumbles backward. Jay runs at Oblivion, but is hammered by a stiff clothesline from Oblivion.

Zach Davis: That clothesline almost turned Jay Price inside out!

Oblivion picks up the dazed Jay Price and Guerrilla Presses him before launching him over the guardrail and into the audience. Jay's body careens through a huge section of fans. Oblivion reaches under the ring apron and begins pulling metal trashcans out. He hoists one over his head and heaves it into the ring. The can tumbles and spills various tools and blunt objects including a wooden baseball bat. Price has picked himself up out of the crowd and is shoving his way back to the ring. Oblivion dumps the second can before launching it into the crowd at Price. Price ducks it, several children don't. Price gets a running start and leaps over the guardrail and dropkicks Oblivion, sending him backward into the ring post. Oblivion kicks the ring-steps loose and quickly raises them over his head. Price punches at Oblivion, but his strikes only connect against the metal steps. Price shakes the pain out of his fists. Oblivion shoves the ring-steps into Price's
face. Price's forehead explodes in bloody mess.

Shannan Lerch: Jay's busted open!

Jay Price back-peddles before sliding into the ring. Oblivion pulls himself up by the middle rope and steps through. Price DDTs Oblivion's head into a shiny reflective toaster. Oblivion's blood sprays out from under his mask. Price wrenches Oblivions neck back and applies a stout Dragon Sleeper. Oblivion's arms flail as he tries to break the hold. Price plants a series of unpleasant knees into Oblivions spine. Oblivion manages to slam the toaster into Prices head, breaking the hold. Price kneels and slips his fingers around the grip of the Louisville Slugger. Oblivion arms himself with the closest thing, which turns out to be a fairly large potted plant.

Zach Davis: Does Oblivion plan on hitting Price with that fern?

Shannan Lerch: That's no fern, Zach. That's a cactus!

Price takes a deadly cut at Oblivion, but Oblivion dodges it. Oblivion lashes Price with the fruitful cactus. Price's face is shredded by the viscous thorns. Blood drips down his face, muting his expression. Price spins and takes another mean cut at oblivion with the baseball bat. This time the bat connects with Oblivions front teeth. Oblivion folds to the pain. He vomits a mixture of blood and teeth directly onto the Wcf logo adorning the center of the ring. Price raises the bat slams it down onto to the top of Oblivion's head.

Zach Davis: Oh god. That sound... was sickening.

Oblivion's arms begin to tremble as he fights to keep himself from hitting the mat. Price laces the bat across Oblivions throat and begins to choke him with it. Oblivion manages to twist himself out of the choke and away from Price. Blood is pouring out of the bottom of Oblivions mask and onto his chest. Jay Price is taunting Oblivion and swinging the bat decidedly at head level. Oblivion rolls out of the ring and goes over to the fan lined guardrail. He yells something and he is presented with several chairs. He chooses one and turns back to Price. Price shrugs and taps on his wrist as if he's late for a luncheon. Oblivion starts back toward the ring. Price soccer kicks the toaster and it spirals across the ring, under the bottom rope and into Oblivions face. Oblivion shakes it off and slides into the ring. Price charges and swings for the fences. Oblivion blocks it with his chair, which causes a huge dent in it. Oblivion shoves the chair into Jay's
face, then hammers it down onto the top of Price's head. Price staggers then falls to one knee. Oblivion raises the chair and smashes it down onto Jay Price's head. Price folds to the mat. Oblivion jams the legs of the chair down onto Price's back. Price yells in anger/agony. Oblivion lifts Price and flips him into an unsavory tiltawhirl back breaker. Price bounces off Oblivions knee and onto a pile of scattered weapons.

Zach Davis: Looks like Price is fading.

Shannan Lerch: The human body can only take so much punishment.

Oblivion lifts Price out of the debris and belly to belly suplexs him across the ring. Price rolls under the ropes, away from the advancing Oblivion. Price leans back while holding onto the top rope, dodging Oblivions wild hay-makers. Price uses the ropes leverage to rocket a decimating head-butt into Oblivions face. Oblivion falters just long enough for Price to slingshot himself over the ropes and connect a stiff shoulder block. Oblivion stumbles backward as Price follows up with a flurry of combination strikes. Oblivion is rendered to one knee. Price finds his baseball bat and lines it up against the side of Oblivions head. Price calls his shot "Babe Ruth style" by pointing the end of the bat deep into the crowd. Price steps through his swing and Oblivions head rocks hard from the impact. Price stands over the unconscious monster. He takes one more decimating swing that slightly spins the motionless Oblivion.

Zach Davis: I think that's it for Oblivion.

Shannan Lerch: Price may have caved in his skull.

Price motions for the ref to check if Oblivion is still alive.

The ref squats over Oblivion and snakes his hand down to the monster's neck.

The ref signals that Oblivion isn't dead.

The ref begins a ten count.

One!

Two!

Jay Price leans against the turnbuckle with his Louisville Slugger propped atop his shoulder.

Three!

Four!

Five!

Zach Davis: Well, I don't think he's getting up.

Shannan Lerch: Guess we better call in the meat wagon.

Six!

Seven!

Without warning a glass bottle shatters against the ref's head. The ref collapses to the mat.

Zach Davis: Someone in the crowd just threw a bottle into the ring and brained our referee!

Shannan Lerch: Damnit! Freakin' rednecks! Only in Texas.

Jay Price is scanning the crowd and the air above the crowd for more flying debris. He begins pointing the bat at the crowd and screaming at them.

Zach Davis: So what now. Someone get another ref from the back. I'm pretty sure this one's done for the night.

Shannan Lerch: Why don't you slide in there and finish the count.

Zach Davis: I really do need the extra paycheck.

The crowd suddenly roars to life as someone hops the guardrail and slides into the ring behind a blood drenched Jay Price.

Shannan Lerch: Greenfever! Greenfever's in the ring!

Zach Davis: After the beating Price and Seth Lerch gave him last week I'm surprised he's out of the hospital!

Jay Price senses something askew. He quickly spins around and swings the bat. Greenfever ducks it then slaps the bat out of Price's hands. Price's eyes widen.

Zach Davis: I think he was expecting Oblivion.

Greenfever connects a series of elbows into Jay's chin. Price reels against the ropes. Greenfever grabs his legs and dumps him over and out of the ring. Greenfever kneels and picks up the jagged neck of the broken bottle before he slides out of the ring. Greenfever pulls Price up to his feet by a fist-full of hair. Price tries in vain to push Greenfever away.

Shannan Lerch: Price is just worn out.

Greenfever begins shoving the neck of the broken bottle into Jay's stomach. Blood pours out and onto the floor.

Zach Davis: He's gonna kill him! Somebody stop this!

Greenfever jams the jagged glass into Price one more time. This time letting it hang inside the destroyed flesh. Greenfever punts Price in the testicles, then whirls him around into the guardrail. Price collapses in the corner. Greenfever picks up the already dislodged ring steps and walks calmly toward him.

Greenfever hoists the heavy metal over his head, then spikes it down onto the disfigured Jay Price.

Shannan Lerch: I can't watch this anymore.

Greenfever kneels over the barely conscious Jay Price and pulls the bottle neck out of his stomach. Price struggles against him as he tries to jam the glass into Price's eye. The jagged glass looms inches from Price's face. Jay's arms begin to tremble as his energy wanes. Greenfever whips his head around just in time to see Oblivion take to the sky. Greenfever dives just as Oblivion crashes down from the top turnbuckle onto the body of Jay Price.

The crowd roars.

Zach Davis: Oblivion's alive!

Shannan Lerch: And here comes security, finally.

5 guys in WcF security shirts are bolting down the entrance ramp. Greenfever hops the guardrail and disappears into the mass.

Oblivion picks up Price and rolls him into the ring. Security drags out the unconscious ref as a fresh striped shirt slides in.

Zach Davis: Oblivion's got that crazy look in his eyes!

Shannan Lerch: He's always got a crazy look in his eyes.

Oblivion whips Price against the ropes.

Zach Davis: Check out time!

Oblivion's kick forces Price to do a ungraceful back-flip, landing limply near the ropes. Oblivion drags Price to the center of the ring, then points to the top turnbuckle.

The crowd roars.

Oblivion pulls himself up and throws his arms out to the side in a grand spectacle. Oblivion leaps. Camera flashes immortalize the moment. Oblivion crashes down onto the lifeless body of Jay Price. The ref slides into place next to them on the mat.

One!

Two!

Thre..KICKOUT!

Zach Davis: Price just doesn't quit.

Shannan Lerch: He's gotta be running on pure instinct now. His brain has been traumatized by all this pain.

Oblivion screams at the heavens out of frustration. Oblivion grudgingly lifts Price and slings him into the turnbuckle. Oblivion lifts Price up onto the top turnbuckle as he climbs up himself.

Zach Davis: This is bad.

Oblivion lifts Jay Price and leaps off the top turnbuckle. Another round of camera flashes ensue. Price's head is driven into the mat. The ref energetically slides into place and begins slapping the canvas.

Zach Davis: Shatter! Oblivion broke out Shatter on him!

Shanna Lerch: I heard Price's head shatter against the mat.

One!

Two!

KICKOUT!!!!

Zach Davis: Unbelievable. Honestly. I don't believe what I am seeing.

Oblivion gets up and begins screaming at the ref.

Shannan Lerch: Is Price... getting up?

Zach Davis: He is!

Price spins Oblivion and yanks him downward, spiking Oblivions face into his knees.

Shannan Lerch: Busted Grill!

One!

TWO!

THREE, NO! KICKOUT!!!

Shannan Lerch: Watching this match has shaven years off my life.

Oblivion makes it to his feet a microsecond before Price. Oblivion slings Price into the ropes. Price is folded over as Oblivion side kicks him in the face.

Zach Davis: Check Out TIIIIME!

The ref slides into place.

One!

TWO!!

NO! KICKOUT!

Shannan Lerch: WHAT!?

Oblivion still doesn't stomp. He kicks Price a few times and then slowly climbs to the ropes.. as fast as he can.. and flies off with the Bi-Polar! He pins Price, hooking the leg!

ONE!

TWO!

THREE.

Zach Davis: Oblivion does it! New WCF Hardcore Champion!

Shannan Lerch: Neither of them wanted to let it go and neither will ever be the same.

Oblivion's music hits and he rolls off of Price, exhausted. The ref places the belt on Oblivion's body, and Oblivion clutches it as he rolls out of the ring. He's joined by the Society, who help him up the ramp.

Zach Davis: Oblivion has advanced in the Trilogy Cup Tournament... we now know it is going to be Oblivion versus Steve Thunder versus Ace Garrison for the Cup and a chance at the World Title next month at Aftermath.

In the ring, Price is slowly getting up, realizing now what just happened. A look of panic crosses his face and he's clearly pissed. He slides out and grabs his Elite Title and People's Title.

Shannan Lerch: Well.. the story may have been different if Greenfever hadn't been involved!

Zach Davis: Indeed, Shannan. Indeed.

Slickie T Segment

The scene cuts to a suite high atop the The Frank Erwin Center where former WCF World Champion Allen Guiliano has been prepped for an interview and stands behind a spread of food, glancing down into the arena, watching closely as the ring is being prepared for the next match. The box that has been reserved for him is anything but empty as he has treated several members of his Las Vegas staff to a free trip and seats in his suite for Explosion. Despite his absence on the Explosion card, there are a plethora of fans sporting their Slickie T gear proudly, bringing a warm smile to Guiliano's face as he continue to look out over the throng of people that have gathered inside the arena.

The crowd emits a huge pop as the main cameras now focus on the window outside Guiliano's suite. The Italian notices that he is now the center of attention as he appears on the giant screen at one end of the arena, flashing an even bigger smile as Hank Brown approaches him from behind. The camera switches views and now shows the inside of the suit as the interviewer directs the opening question to Guiliano.

Hank Brown: Ladies and gentlemen I am joined here by former WCF World Champion Slickie T who is in the house this evening as a spectator instead of a competitor. I think we are all wondering what is on the mind of one of the most recognizable figures in this federation and I will do my best to get that information out of our former champ. First off, Slickie, how does it feel to be up here in your box as a fan rather than back there in your own dressing room as a competitor preparing for a match?

Allen Guiliano: Personally, I welcome the change of pace a little bit and although I would like nothing more than to be down there in the back and be preparing for a triple threat match for the WCF World Title against Chad Evans and Hector Rodriguez, it is nice to be able to fully experience what the WCF fan gets to witness week in and week out. Each match of this great event has lived up to the hype and I'm sure the rest will offer just as much and even more entertainment for not only me, but these fans as well.

Hank Brown: Speaking of Chad Evans and Hector Rodriguez, if you had a pick a winner of tonight's main event here in Austin, Texas, who would it be and why?

Allen Guiliano: I'm not about predicting winners for matches, but I have had the honor of facing each of these men inside the squared circle and I will be the first to tell you that they are both hard-nosed competitors that will give it their all in any match. I can only imagine what kind of match those two will put on when the World Title is on the line. There has been a lot of talk in the back about this match up and why Hector is the one in the ring tonight instead of me, but I think he deserves his shot despite his unfortunate personally turn over the last several weeks. I respect the in-ring abilities of both Hector and Chad, but that is as far as the respect goes.

Hank Brown: Chad Evans had some harsh words to say about not only you personally, but your wrestling abilities as well in a recent interview that he did with me on Slam. Do you have anything to say back to him regarding his comments?

Allen Guiliano: Hank, as I have said in the last few weeks about Mr. Evans, I am not about to exchange verbal attacks with him. We have faced each other inside the ring on two separate occasions now and I, through winning a battle royal, have earned my right to compete against him for a third time. He can try to convince you, Seth, and all these fans that he doesn't think I have what it takes to regain the WCF World Title, but he is simply lying to himself and trying to avoid another match. No offense to the rest of the roster, but I think it is clear that there are two men who have separated themselves from the rest of the field and have made it a two horse race each and every week for the WCF's top prize. Hector is a great competitor, but I have proven time and time again who the better man is, despite his new group that he has put together and aligned himself with.

Every one of those guys in the back strive to be at the top of this federation and have doubted my ability to regain the WCF World Title since my embarrassing defeat to Chad, well now Hector is getting a taste of just how tiring it is and how much is demanded of a man when it comes to being the best in this federation. I have been pushed to the brink of exhaustion several times since arriving here in the WCF and now it is nice to see someone other than myself being run through the gauntlet to simply get a chance at the belt. Hector will finally know how it feels to be in my shoes and maybe he will be a little slower to doubt my status as the #1 Contender to Chad's crown.

Hank Brown: You have talked about your personal issues over the last couple weeks and how you weren't your best at Timebomb when Chad defeated you for the title, but that you have resolved your issues. How long will it be before we start to see the Slickie T of old?

Allen Guiliano: I would like to think that I have returned to my very best and that I am better now than I was when I was the World Champion. Every issue that has been on my mind in the past is now resolved and I am ready to get back in the ring and compete at the highest level once again. Wrestling in a few undercard matches has eased me back into this business and after clearing my head, I have an announcement for you and the rest of the fans here in the WCF...

Hank Brown: I'm sure that everyone out there is wondering what that announcement could be. I know that I am and can't wait to hear what it is! When will you be making this announcement as I know the fans and everyone else in the wrestling world will want to be tuned in when you do in fact make it!

Allen Guiliano: Hank, I'm not the kind of guy to keep people waiting in suspense, I am going to make the announcement right here, right now and allow you to be the first to break the news. As everyone knows, I was the winner of that battle royal that allowed me to earn a World Title match. Usually I would simply wait until Seth booked me in that match, but this time I am taking things into my own hands. Hank, I've cleared my head and I'm ready to get that belt back around my waist as soon as possible. Chad, Hector, keep this in mind when wrestling for that title here tonight, I want to cash in my ticket and take my World Title match at Aftermath! I'm not waiting around, I don't need anymore tune up matches, listening to the two of you act like you are the only ones that matter in this federation has gotten on my last nerve and it is my time once again. I hope you enjoyed the World Championship picture without me in it because that is about to come to an end. Seth, I hope you are paying attention back there and if you weren't let me make this real clear. Slickie T. World Title shot. Aftermath. That's all anyone needs to know.

The crowd pops once again at the announcement and the chant of “Slick-ie T” breaks out in The Frank Erwin Center as Hank realizes what has just been said.

Hank Brown: Fans you heard it right here in Austin! Slickie T is demanding a World Title shot at Aftermath! He made his debut at Aftermath a year ago with a win against Chris Avery and Johnny Anthrax, this time around, he is trying to win the WCF World Championship for the second time. What a run it has been for Allen Guiliano and it shows no signs of slowing down. That's all the time we have, our next match is set to begin at any moment, back to you guys at ring side!


Hector Rodriguez vs Chad Evans

Zach Davis: It is time now for the main event of the evening as Chad Evans defends the WCF World Title against Hector Rodriguez!

Shannan Lerch: I pledge that I will be unbiased during the broadcast of this match because I am a professional. Having said that, I will be pulling for the champion in this match harder than I have ever pulled for any wrestler in my life.

Zach Davis: Oh really? What about Logan, Jay Price, Prince Jimmy—

Shannan Lerch: Zach, not another word! I am not in the mood!

"Hit 'Em Up" by Lil Wayne hits the speakers and out from the back walks Hector Rodriguez followed by Diagur who is wearing a white suit. Boos flood from the crowd as Hector stands on the top of the ramp. He grins through the mask at the sound of the boos. He leans forward and flexes his arms towards each other and roars out, his eyes on the ring. Hector finally starts walking down the ramp and keeps his focus soley on the ring as Diagur slowly follows him talking trash to the fans.

Kyle Steel: Ladies and gentlemen, the time has come for our main event of the evening! This match is scheduled for one fall and it is for the WCF WOOOOORRRLD CHAMPIONSHIP!!! Introducing first, the challenger…this man weighed in at two-hundred and sixty pounds this morning. He hails from Toluca, Mexico. He is a former WCF United States Champion. Here is THE MEXICAN MAAACHHHINNNNEEEEE HECTOOOOOOR ROOOOODDRIIIIIIGUUUEEZZZZ!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hector and Diagur finally reach ringside and Hector climbs the ring steps first. Hector walks to the middle and sits down on the middle rope, holding it open for Diagur who nods to Hector before stepping in. Hector steps through the middle and top rope and walks into the center of the ring. Diagur stands off to the side with a serious look on his face as Hector walks over to one of the turnbuckles.

He just stands there looking out at the crowd who start to boo him. He holds his hands up and makes the MS-13 gang sign with his hands which causes the boos to get even heavier in the arena.

Zach Davis: In all seriousness, Shannan, I think that we can all understand your disdain for MS-13 after what they’ve done to your brother and my boss Seth Lerch. First they beat up Seth outside of Taco Bell a few weeks ago. Then last week during Slam…they burned Seth’s house down!

Shannan Lerch: It was horrible, Zach. I traveled home with Seth after Slam last week. When we arrived the firefighters had finished extinguishing the flames, but the house was ruined. There was nothing left except for the charred remains of a once glorious suburban Pennsylvania estate. I confronted Hector and Diagur before the show tonight. They expressed absolutely no remorse. Diagur called me a “puta” and Hector just stood there scowling at me. I could tell that he was scowling even though he was wearing his mask.

Zach Davis: Hector does express himself very effectively even without speaking, but that is unfortunate, Shannan. I’m sorry for everything that your family has suffered through this past week. It’s unbelievable the lengths that some people will go to in order to receive a shot at the WCF World Title.

The arena lights suddenly go out and the crowd murmurs in anticipation. The opening riff of “Panic Switch” by Silversun Pickups hits the PA system, as a thousand points of light converge at the top of the entrance ramp. Chad Evans appears at the center of this beacon wearing his traditional wrestling attire and a black robe, with JJ and Bobby Cairo standing at his side. The crowd reaction to this intriguing trio is loud and mostly positive, with some boos from the diehard Slickie T supporters in attendance. Evans, JJ and Cairo pay no mind to the fans as they stride purposefully to the ring with focused looks on their faces, the white lights now flickering in unison with the music.

Kyle Steel: Introducing his opponent…this man weighed in at two-hundred and five pounds for tonight’s match. He comes to us from Hartford, Connecticut. This man is the reigning WCF WOOOOORRRLD CHAMPION!!! Here is THE ANARCHIST KILLING MACHINE CHAAAAAD DOOOOG EVVAAAANNNSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!

The camera pans and shows a glimpse of Chad from behind; on the back of his robe the words “Chad Dogg” are emblazoned in bold red font, below them is an image of Evans in a fight stance ready to strike. Chad jumps onto the ring apron and flips forward over the top rope into the ring, while Cairo slides under the ropes. Chad holds the ropes open for JJ to enter the ring. Evans then hands his robe to the ringside attendant, and does some last minute warm-ups while discussing strategy with Cairo and JJ.

Zach Davis: The World Champion looks focused and determined as always, Shannan. Things have gotten personal recently between Chad and Hector due to Chad’s courtship of Hector’s former manager JJ, who became Hector’s former manager when she sided with Chad last week on Slam.

Shannan Lerch: Chad is a fighter and a champion, but he’s also a romantic, Zach. I cannot blame JJ for falling head over heels for him.

Zach Davis: Nonetheless I have to believe that Hector would like to exact his revenge upon Chad for stealing his manager away from him, in addition to Hector’s main goal which is obviously capturing the WCF World Title.

Shannan Lerch: According to Hector’s new manager Diagur, Hector is as prepared for this match as he’s ever been for any match in his life, despite the shake-up in Hector’s management last week. Diagur said that tonight is Hector’s match. We shall see if those words prove to be prophetic.

Referee Kirk Kirkpatrick checks Hector and Chad for weapons before the match and instructs their respective managers to take their places outside of the ring. Kirkpatrick issues his final instructions to both men and orders them to their respective corners.

DING! DING! DING!

The match is underway with a cheer from the crowd. Hector tries to coax Chad into a collar-and-elbow lock-up, but Chad refuses. Chad circles the ring, looking for an opening. Hector is alert and quick on his feet in his own right. Hector suddenly lunges toward Chad. Chad sidesteps Hector and Hector eats the turnbuckles. Hector is angry now. Chad engages Hector with quick kicks and punches, moving quickly in and out of Hector’s striking range. The strikes do little damage to Hector but he’s clearly annoyed. Chad tries another kick, but Hector grabs Chad’s leg and yanks him to the ground before Chad can react. Hector drops down on Chad and unloads with power shots to the head.

Zach Davis: Hector is taking it to the World Champion with those heavy hands! We’ve got some ground and pound action going on, Shannan!

Shannan Lerch: It’s nothing technical or flashy, but it’s effective and Hector is a brawler at heart.

After administering a satisfactory amount of punishment to the World Champion, Hector gets to his feet. Hector whips Chad into the ropes and connects with a big boot to Chad’s face. Evans crumples to the mat and Hector makes the cover.

Kirk Kirkpatrick: ONE…

TWO…

NO!!!

Evans kicks out with authority. Hector pulls Chad up and sends him into the ropes. Hector gets a running start and drills Chad with a flying shoulder tackle. Hector makes another cover.

Kirk Kirkpatrick: ONE…

TWO…

NO!!!

Zach Davis: Evans kicks out! Hector is being very aggressive early in this match, Shannan. He’s taking the fight to the World Champion.

Shannan Lerch: Hector is the bigger and stronger man and he’s pretty damn agile for a man his size as well. He wants to wear down Chad as early as possible and continue to punish the champion. That’s the best way for Hector to negate Chad’s speed and explosiveness.

Hector pulls Chad to his feet and sets him up for a piledriver. Hector lifts Chad up and drills him into the mat with a devastating piledriver. Hector makes another cover.

Kirk Kirkpatrick: ONE…

TWO…

NO!!!

Zach Davis: Kickout by the champion! We haven’t seen Chad Evans handled like this in some time, Shannan, if ever.

Shannan Lerch: I think that Chad is having trouble adjusting to Hector’s power, to be quite honest. As you look at Bobby Cairo and JJ at ringside, you can see the looks of concern on their faces. Chad has to find an opening. He has to use his speed, agility and acceleration to get back into his match.

Zach Davis: When you say acceleration--oof! Hector just hit Chad with a nice belly-to-belly suplex and he makes the cover!

Kirk Kirkpatrick: ONE…

TWO…

NO!!!

Zach Davis: Kickout by Chad Evans! Chad is a hard man to put away, we know that, Shannan.

Hector works Chad over in the corner with clubbing forearms and knees to the midsection.

Shannan Lerch: We saw Chad’s resiliency in those two classic matches that he had against Slickie T, Zach. If it is possible to keep Chad’s shoulders pinned to the mat for three seconds, then I’m not sure exactly how one would go about doing so.

Hector measures Chad and hits a running Yakuza kick in the corner.

Zach Davis: I’m sure that JJ has some ideas about how to accomplish that feat, Shannan. Unfortunately for Hector, she’s working for Chad now.

Shannan Lerch: Another cheap sex joke, Zach?

Hector lifts Chad above his head and in an impressive show of strength Hector presses Chad repeatedly before violently dropping him to the mat.

Zach Davis: Huge military press slam by Hector Rodriguez and he makes the cover on Chad! New champion?

Kirk Kirkpatrick: ONE…

TWO…

THR—NO!!!

Chad gets his shoulder up before the three. Hector pounds the mat with his fist and yells at the referee, as does Diagur from ringside.

Zach Davis: I guess Hector and Diagur thought that was a slow count, but I think it was just pure guts and wherewithal on Chad’s part to kick out after that punishing gorilla press slam by Hector.

Shannan Lerch: In Hector’s case it’s really more of a guerilla press slam, Zach.

Hector mercilessly stomps away at Chad.

Zach Davis: That’s what I just said! A gorilla press slam!

Shannan Lerch: You’re saying gorilla as in the primate…

Hector waits for Chad to get up, measures Chad, and hits a stiff running knee lift that drops Chad to the mat. Diagur cackles at ringside while the fans boo.

Shannan Lerch: I’m saying guerilla as in a freedom fighter or revolutionary.

Hector drops down and makes the cover on Chad.

Kirk Kirkpatrick: ONE…

TWO…

THR—NO!!!

Zach Davis: Kick out at the last possible moment by Chad Evans and the World Champion is still alive in this match! So you’re saying guerilla as in “Guerilla Radio” by Rage Against the Machine?

Hector whips Chad into the ropes and connects with a vicious back elbow to the bridge of Chad’s nose. Blood immediately begins gushing from Chad’s nose as he drops to the mat in a heap.

Shannan Lerch: Precisely! I prefer System of a Down myself, but they’re both good.

Hector makes the cover.

Kirk Kirkpatrick: ONE…

TWO…

THR—NO!!!

Once again Chad kicks out after coming perilously close to being defeated. Diagur shouts instructions to Hector at ringside. Hector looks at Diagur and then looks toward the top rope. Hector walks over to the corner and begins climbing the ropes.

Zach Davis: Could this be it? Could Hector Rodriguez be on the verge of hitting his patented Toluca Drop and beating Chad Evans to become the new WCF World Champion?!

Hector stands perched on the top rope, staring at the prone World Champion in the middle of the ring. Hector suddenly springs from the turnbuckle and goes for his devastating flying elbow drop. He misses.

Zach Davis: Chad moved! Chad moved! Hector hit the mat hard!

Shannan Lerch: Chad Dogg has a second life! Can he do it, Zach? Can he get to his feet and take control of this match?

Zach Davis: I don’t know, Shannan! I’m usually the one asking those questions!

Diagur screams at Hector, who begins stirring on the mat. Bobby, JJ and the fans are all shouting encouragement to Chad, who looks dead on the mat. Suddenly, Chad begins moving and the cheers grow louder.

Zach Davis: Chad Evans is crawling toward the ropes! He’s at the ropes! Chad is pulling himself to his feet!

Shannan Lerch: Uh-oh, Hector is already on his feet!

Hector charges at Chad. Chad snaps into action with an Axe kick that drills Hector in his jaw. Hector remains standing but he is staggered backwards by the kick. Chad quickly seizes the opening and unleashes a torrent of lighting fast slaps about Hector’s head and body. The crowd jumps to its feet.

Zach Davis: Hundred hand slap! I never thought I would see this move in a WCF World Title match! God, this brings back memories of playing Street Fighter II when I was a kid!

Shannan Lerch: Nonsense, Zach. That was last weekend in your mother’s basement. Uh-oh…it looks like Chad’s slaps aren’t having much impact on Hector, Zach!

Hector scowls at Chad from behind his mask while absorbing Chad’s slaps with total impunity. Chad ceases his onslaught as he clearly senses that it is not having the desired impact. Hector backs up a couple of steps and then charges Chad.

Zach Davis: Clothesline from Hell!

Chad ducks Hector’s furious clothesline attempt.

Shannan Lerch: No, Chad ducks!

Hector turns around and Chad lets loose with punishing kicks to Hector’s body.

Shannan Lerch: Look at Chad go! He’s laying into Hector’s ribs with those devastating karate kicks! That’s the kind of striking that we’re used to seeing from Chad Dogg!

Chad punctuates his barrage of kicks with a powerful roundhouse kick to the face that finally drops Hector to the mat. The crowd reacts with a thunderous cheer. Chad motions to Hector to get up.

Zach Davis: What’s Chad doing?

Shannan Lerch: I don’t know, Zach, but I do know that Chad is explosive. That’s what I meant earlier when I was talking about his acceleration.

As Hector gets to a knee, Chad measures Hector, gets a running start and nails Hector with a stiff Shining Wizard. Chad finally takes a moment to wipe the blood from his nose.

Zach Davis: Ooh! Big move by Chad Evans with the Shining Wizard! Chad makes the cover!

Kirk Kirkpatrick: ONE…

TWO…

NO!!!

Hector kicks out. Chad wastes no time in whipping Hector into the ropes. Chad hits Hector with a rolling wheel kick. Hector is staggered but still standing. Chad quickly sets Hector up for the Implant DDT and then plants him into the mat.

Zach Davis: Evans Implant! Will that do it?

Chad makes the cover.

Kirk Kirkpatrick: ONE…

TWO…

THR—NO!!!

Zach Davis: Hector kicks out!

Shannan Lerch: That’s impressive, Zach. The Evans Implant has put away many of Chad’s opponents, but Hector is tougher than most.

Chad hops over the top rope and stands on the ring apron. Hector gets to his feet. Chad springboards off of the top rope and nails Hector in the chest with a dropkick. Hector crashes to the mat and Chad makes the cover.

Kirk Kirkpatrick: ONE…

TWO…

THR—NO!!!

Zach Davis: Hector kicks out! Chad is really cooking now, Shannan. When he gets into a groove, he’s a hard man to stop.

Shannan Lerch: Oh, no doubt. Chad is relentless, that’s why we call him Chad Dogg. He’s like a pit bull on a poodle when he’s beating down an opponent.

Hector bounces to his feet, clearly angered by Chad’s series of offensive maneuvers. Hector charges at Chad. Chad sidesteps Hector and dispatches of him with a judo throw.

Zach Davis: As an animal lover, I don’t know if I’m comfortable with that analogy, Shannan. It conjures images of the Michael Vick dog fighting fiasco.

Chad sets Hector up for a suplex. Chad hits a crisp snap suplex that sends Hector to the mat. Chad sprints to the corner and bounds to the top turnbuckle.

Shannan Lerch: I’m sorry, Zach. I didn’t mean anything by it. I have a couple of cats myself, so I’m sensitive to these issues.

Hector gets to his feet. Chad leaps from the top rope and connects with a beautiful missile dropkick to Hector’s chest. Hector falls to the mat and Chad quickly makes the cover.

Kirk Kirkpatrick: ONE…

TWO…

THR—NO!!!

Zach Davis: Another close call but Hector kicks out! This is shaping up to be another World Title classic, Shannan!

Chad jumps to his feet and goes ballistic on Hector with a series of soccer kicks and stomps to the fallen challenger.

Shannan Lerch: For all of the animosity between these two men, what it really comes down to is that they both want to be WCF World Champion and they’re willing to push themselves to the limit in order to make that happen.

Chad punctuates his onslaught with a double foot stomp to Hector’s chest. Chad quickly makes the cover.

Kirk Kirkpatrick: ONE…

TWO…

THR—NO!!!

Zach Davis: Chad cannot put the Mexican Machine away! What is it going to take?

Chad pounds the mat with his fists, frustrated by his inability to finish Hector. Bobby and JJ are shouting at Chad from ringside, but Chad pays them no mind as he leaps to the top rope. Hector gets to his feet. Chad leaps off of the ropes.

Zach Davis: Oh my! Hector Rodriguez just caught Chad Evans in mid-air! Hector has his hand wrapped around Chad’s throat!

Shannan Lerch: I don’t like the looks of this!

Hector lifts Chad high into the air and then slams him to the mat with thunderous force.

Zach Davis: Chokeslam! Can Hector make the cover?! Does he have enough energy left in him?!

Hector crawls over and drapes his arm across Chad’s chest.

Kirk Kirkpatrick: ONE…

TWO…

THRE—NO!!!

Zach Davis: Kick out! I don’t believe it! Chad kicked out after that devastating chokeslam!

Shannan Lerch: Chad has the heart of a champion, Zach. I’m beginning to think that the only way to pin him is to kill him.

Zach Davis: Don’t give MS-13 any ideas, Shannan. They might take you seriously!

Shannan Lerch: At least somebody would for a change.

Both men are slowly climbing to their feet. Hector is up first. Hector grabs hold of Chad and sets him up for the Respecto, his version of the Rock Bottom. Chad blocks the Respecto. Chad knees Hector in the midsection, spins Hector around and lifts him into position for the Burning Hammer.

Zach Davis: Chad’s got Hector up for the Brad Kane Killer! Can he hit it? Yes, Chad hits it! BK Killer! That has to do it!

Shannan Lerch: Chad looks like he’s a bit banged up himself, Zach. He’s not making a quick cover this time.

Zach Davis: Come on, Chad! Crawl if you have to!

Chad slowly crawls over to Hector and drapes an arm across the Mexican Machine’s chest.

Kirk Kirkpatrick: ONE…

TWO…

THREE—NO!!!

Zach Davis: Hector kicks out! Hector kicks out of the BK Killer! My god I don’t believe it!

Shannan audibly sighs in disappointment.

Shannan Lerch: Hector is tough, Zach. Tough and resilient.

Chad and Hector are both down on the mat. Diagur shouts encouragement at Hector, while almost everyone else in the arena is directing their support to Chad, most notably JJ and Bobby at ringside. Hector and Chad begin stirring on the mat and then slowly crawling toward the ropes.

Zach Davis: Who wants it more? Who wants it more!? Who can get to their feet first?

Shannan Lerch: Chad is up first, Zach! Chad is up!

Chad shakes the cobwebs loose and walks over to Hector, who’s still struggling to get to his feet. Chad drills Hector with a spinning back kick that doubles Hector over. Chad quickly grabs Hector and sticks Hector’s head between his legs.

Zach Davis: I think Chad is going for the Anarchist Uprising, Shannan!

Shannan Lerch: It looks like it, Zach!

Chad tries to lift Hector up for his crucifix powerbomb finisher, but Hector blocks it and counters into a back body drop.

Zach Davis: What a reversal! The Mexican Machine was too strong for Chad, even in his weakened state!

Hector takes a moment to compose himself as the crowd boos lustily. Hector walks over to Chad and pulls Chad up by his hair. Hector scoops Chad up and hoists Chad onto his shoulder. Hector gets a running start and then plants Chad with a powerslam.

Zach Davis: Toluca Slam perfectly executed by Hector Rodriguez! I think we have a new World Champion!

Kirk Kirkpatrick: ONE…

TWO…

THREE—NO!!!

Shannan Lerch: Chad got his foot on the ropes! This match isn’t over yet!

Hector screams at the referee in disgust, but Kirkpatrick doesn’t flinch. Diagur climbs onto the ring apron. Diagur is screaming at the referee now. Kirkpatrick admonishes Diagur and instructs him to get off of the apron, but Diagur refuses.

Zach Davis: What the hell is Diagur doing? He has no business getting involved in this match! The referee made the right call!

Bobby Cairo runs over to Diagur’s side of the ring. Bobby pulls Diagur down from the apron and gets in his face. The two men are jawing at each other until Diagur takes a swing at Bobby. Bobby dodges the punch and unloads with a combination of punches that throttle Diagur.

Zach Davis: I guess Bobby had enough of Diagur’s shenanigans!

Bobby and Diagur continue fighting at ringside, much to the delight of the fans. The referee is not nearly as amused. Kirkpatrick’s back is turned to the action in the ring as he tries to restore order at ringside.

Shannan Lerch: JJ just picked up a steel chair from ringside and now she’s headed into the ring with it!

JJ slides into the ring with a steel chair in hand. Hector and Chad are standing next to each other, observing the fight between Bobby and Diagur, oblivious to JJ’s presence. Chad and Hector then turn and look at each other, suddenly remembering that they’re still in a World Title match despite the carnage at ringside. Out of the corner of their eyes both men notice JJ. They turn toward her with surprised looks on their faces. JJ lets out a scream and then charges with the chair raised above her head.

Zach Davis: JJ just hit Chad with the chair! Hector moved out of the way and she hit Chad! I don’t know if it was intentional or not, but Chad is out cold on the mat!

Shannan Lerch: This is so sad, Zach! I was talking to Chad before the show tonight and he told me that JJ is just the type of woman that he could settle down and have kids with someday!

JJ stands over Chad’s fallen body with no expression on her face, no hint of emotion. The crowd is booing mercilessly. JJ looks up at Hector who is standing at a distance and staring at her. JJ turns away and climbs out of the ring. Hector taps the referee on the shoulder to get his attention and then makes the cover on Chad.

ONE!!!

TWO!!!

THREE!!!

Zach Davis: Match over! New champion! I don’t believe it! Just like that Hector Rodriguez has defeated Chad Evans to become the new WCF World Champion!

Shannan Lerch: What just happened, Zach? Was JJ trying to hit Chad, was she trying to hit Hector? I mean it looked like Hector moved out of the way at the last second, but then again he and Chad were standing right next to each other. And that look on JJ’s face after she hit Chad, there was no emotion. I don’t understand it. JJ has a lot of explaining to do as far as I’m concerned.

Zach Davis: Hopefully we will get the answers next week on Slam, Shannan.

Kyle Steel: Your winner and NEW WCF WOOOOORRRLD CHAMPION, HECTOOOOOOR ROOOOODDRIIIIIIGUUUEEZZZZ!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hector Rodriguez stands in the center of the ring, panting heavily, a huge grin on his face as the crowd showers him with boos. Bobby Cairo is checking on Chad Evans, making sure he's okay. Diagur slides into the ring with the world title belt. Diagur walks up and hands the title to Hector. JJ walks over and raises his hand as the crowd boos even more. "Hit 'Em Up" by Lil Wayne plays on the speakers in the arena.

Zach Davis: Well, dammit! I can't believe that Hector Rodriguez was able to overcome Chad Evans.

Shannan Lerch: Looks like we have another evil bastard on top here in WCF... wait, what are they doing?

JJ is leaning outside of the ring and is handed a microphone. She walks over and hands it to Diagur who turns to the entranceway. Hector's music fades out.

Diagur: Seth Lerch! Get out here right now! The world champion demands your presence in the ring!

Master of Puppets by Metallica hits and out from the back walks an angry and frustrated Seth Lerch. Seth walks down the ramp, up to the stairs and gets into the ring. He is handed a mic by JJ who walks across the ring with it. Seth turns to Diagur.

Seth Lerch: Who the hell do you think you are ordering me to the ring?

Diagur smiles.

Diagur: I'm the manager of YOUR world heavyweight champion, The Mexican Machine... Hector Rodriguez. We called you down here to do something for us.

Seth Lerch: What is that?

Diagur: We wanted you to be the one who officially straps the title belt around Hector's waist.

Hector hands the belt to JJ and turns around, putting his arms out.

Seth Lerch: You think for one second that I'm going to com-

From out of nowhere, "Change" by Deftones starts playing on the arena speakers.

Shannan Lerch: WHAT THE HELL?!

Zach Davis: This must be some kind of joke.

The lights go out as the music continues playing. A spotlight lights up the entranceway. A minute later Bishop and Priest walk out followed by Mike D. A couple of seconds later Jessie and Brian Borroughs walk out and finally from behind all of them walks Chester.

Shannan Lerch: HOLY SHIT! It's The Dark Side!!

Zach Davis: Where's Gravedigger??

In the ring, with Seth distracted, Hector Rodriguez grabs him from behind and picks him up on his shoulders, hitting a Death Valley Driver!

Shannan Lerch: Hector you prick!

Hector gets to his feet and then looks towards the entryway where the Dark Side is standing, awaiting the arrival of former Champion, Gravedigger. Until.. all of a sudden.. Hector starts unzipping his mask.

Zach Davis: What the-

Hector, shocking the audience, voluntarily removes his mask. Revealing..

Shannan Lerch: GRAVEDIGGER!?

The crowd has gone INSANE, half booing and half just being shocked. The Dark Side has begun walking towards the ring as Gravedigger can't help but have a bit of a grin on his face.

Zach Davis: WHAT IS GOING ON!? Gravedigger hasn't competed in WCF for MONTHS!

Shannan Lerch: Did he steal Hector's spot in this match? Or..

Zach Davis: Has... has Hector Rodriguez been Gravedigger all along!?

Gravedigger has a mic. He bends down to Seth, who is just conscious enough to hear what he has to say..

Gravedigger: Hello, Seth.

Gravedigger stands back up, laughing to himself. The crowd is still in shock. JJ is in the ring, and hands him the WCF World Title. Chester has a mic.

Chester: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN! I present to you the man formerly known as Hector Rodriguez.... YOUR WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION..... GRAAAAAAVEDIGGERRRRRRR!!

"Change" by Deftones plays one more time as Gravedigger walks to the nearby turnbuckle and holds the World Title belt up in the air by one of its straps with one hand. The copyright information and logo appear as the camera zooms in on Gravedigger's sadistic grin.
