I don't believe it, but Tik Tok by Ke$ha plays and EXPLOSION is on the air! The Chicago crowd roars (after the initial confusion as to why WCF is using a Ke$ha song) as we go to Zach and Shannan.
Zach Davis: Welcome.. to.. EXPLOSION! What a show we have for you tonight!
Crowd: TICK TOCK! TICK TOCK! TICK TOCK!
Shannan Lerch: That's right. The match that is MONTHS in the making is finally here: Sarah Twilight gets her WCF World Title shot against Eric Price.
Zach Davis: As far as I'm concerned, Sarah getting another World Title shot is almost a year in the making. She had a few shots against Jonny Fly quite a while ago, but ever since One, we've wanted to see her get a piece of Eric Price.
Shannan Lerch: And they've been bringing it to one another ever since. While Eric wasn't busy beating up you, anyway, Zach.
Zach Davis: ...
Shannan Lerch: But remember, if Eric gets himself DQed, he loses the World Title. He's kept that thing by hook or by crook for a while now...
Zach Davis: And Sarah Twilight is unpinned and unsubmitted. All in all, it's looking like a tough night for Mr. Price.
Shannan Lerch: We've finally, FINALLY got the one on one meeting between Nathan von Liebert and Waylon Cash. Nathan has been kidnapping and otherwise terrorizing women in WCF for MONTHS and months, and finally, finally.. tonight someone can shut him up for good.
Zach Davis: I'd like to see that, Shannan, but Waylon seems like he's been in a self destructive downward spiral as of late. And no one from the Polar Phantasm to FPV has been able to stop von Liebert yet.
Shannan Lerch: Interestingly enough, we learned recently that Nathan von Liebert was paid off by Scott Savage to do what he did to Roxxanne.
Zach Davis: Bad business decision by Scott Savage. I'm sure Nathan von Liebert would have done it for free.
Shannan Lerch: Either way, this is Hardcore Hell, and it's going to be a sight to witness.
Zach Davis: We've got a big one on one match between Steve Orbit and Jonny Fly. And if Orbit loses, Fly has said that he's going to FIRE him.
Shannan Lerch: Quite frankly, if Orbit beats him, Fly might be pissed enough to just fire him anyway.
Zach Davis: Fly sees Orbit as an underachiever, someone who hasn't lived up to his potential, and he's out to send a message. Interesting implications here. Jonny Fly is not only the CEO of the company but, truth be told, one of the greatest in ring competitors going today.. this is going to be a hell of a match.
Shannan Lerch: Speaking of "a hell of a match," we've got Tek facing Jay Price for the United States Title. In a TLC, mask versus Title match.
Zach Davis: SO MUCH is on the line on tonight's show! Tek may seem like the underdog here, but remember. When Tek fought Waylon Cash in a Mask vs Hair match, Tek was the underdog there too, and Tek WON. This is going to be interesting.
Shannan Lerch: Two big Trilogy Cup Tournament matches! We'll see Skyler Striker and Christopher Kane go at it, with the Television Title on the line, and Ana Valentine and Benjamin Atreyu.
Zach Davis: Speaking of Christopher Kane, he's one of the most talked about young men going today. He's the one that revealed Scott Savage's secret, and Oblivion is also seeking to take him under his wing.
Shannan Lerch: Davey Ortega challenged Steeltoe Joe for the People's Championship. A lot of people would say that America is going down if a man like Davey Ortega can hold a People's Championship.
Zach Davis: And SOME people have religious tolerance, Shannan! But yes, Davey Ortega is an atheist, and Joe is the People's Pastor, this is going to be quite a fight.
Shannan Lerch: Vengeance finally gets a shot at the Hardcore Title. This was going to be his first chance at WCF gold, but on a recent edition of WCF Wednesday Night, he captured the Internet Title. He may be able to become a double Champ tonight!
Zach Davis: Rebellion has quite a bit of opportunity tonight. They're also getting the chance at Tag Team Title contendership, as Morientes and John Gable face Al Envy and the debuting Tori Notorious, and The Order.
Shannan Lerch: We'll have to wait and see if Morientes and Gable can still get along.
Zach Davis: Rebellion's Blizzard gets a chance at US Title Contendership as he faces Genesis' FPV. FPV took Eric Price TO THE LIMIT last week, but Blizzard has been on a roll too.
Shannan Lerch: The Ninja, also from Rebellion, faces Magnus. The winner faces either Skyler Striker or Christopher Kane in the future for the TV Title!
Zach Davis: And in our opener, we've got Oblivion facing Jesse Styles. Let's start the show!
“You Know My Name” by Chris Cornell starts playing throughout the United Center as the crowd starts booing loudly.
Zach Davis: What is this guy doing now?
Shannan Lerch: He’s the World Champion, he can do what he wants.
Zach Davis: He’s the champion for now but I know Sarah Twilight will kick his ass.
Eric Price comes out wearing a black suit with a gold tie and shirt, a huge smile on his face, sunglasses on as he has the World Title draped over his shoulder.
Kyle Steel: Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome the WCF World Heavyweight Champion, Mr. Eric Price!
Crowd boos loudly.
Zach Davis: Well, Eric Price making his way down to the ring, the current World Champion but for what reason, it’s not time for the World Title match.
Shannan Lerch: Well, maybe if you pay attention and shut up, you’ll see what Eric has to say.
Eric steps into the ring and demands a microphone as he stands in the center of the ring, the crowd chanting.
Crowd: Tick tock! Tick tock! Tick tock!
The spotlight now only on Eric Price as he looks on at the crowd and simply grins at them
Eric Price: Go ahead, keep chanting whatever stupid nonsense you like because the fact is I am still better than you and much better than Sarah Twilight but more than that, I will walk out tonight still the WCF World Champion!
Zach Davis: Postulations by a delusional World Champion!
Shannan Lerch: Zach please, show our champion some respect!
Eric Price: I can 100% guarantee that, especially considering that tonight Sarah Twilight will not be competing and yours truly, the greatest WCF World Champion in history will be taking a well deserved night off!
Crowd boos even louder.
Zach Davis: What the hell? What’s he talking about night off?
Shannan Lerch: And he deserves it after defending his title so much this past month. You tell ‘em champ!
Zach Davis: Oh stop kissing his ass! He’s not going to give you any money!
Shannan Lerch: You don’t know that!
Eric Price: Now, many of you might be thinking “well gee, how can that be?” It’s simple, I said it last week and I will say it again, unless Sarah Twilight gets medically cleared, I cannot in good conscience compete against her because it would not be morally right. And I, being a man of great integrity cannot allow such a transgression to occur.
Crowd: Bullshit! Bullshit! Bullshit!
Zach Davis: This crowd hit the nail right on the head!
Shannan Lerch: Chicago has always been so disrespectful!
Eric Price: It is simple fact and I know that Sarah Twilight cannot possibly be medically cleared at this point therefore, tonight I’m taking the night off and she most likely will not even be here. I simply came out here to inform you and because I did not want to deprive you of seeing your World Champion here tonight. Enjoy the show and you all have a pleasant evening, I thank you very much!
Just as Eric is about to leave, the house lights come on and Hank Brown is shown on the titantron with Sarah Twilight coming into the arena as Eric watches on confused.
Hank Brown: Sarah Twilight, Sarah, quick question.
Sarah Twilight: Yeah?
Hank Brown: Eric Price just announced that he would be taking the night off and that you would not be competing as you were not medically cleared. Is that true?
Sarah Twilight: Haha, I knew Eric would try to pull some last minute stunt like this.
Sarah produces a few pieces of paper from her bag.
Sarah Twilight: I went in for a medical evaluation just in case he tried this and both the local Chicago ER and WCF officials have cleared me for competition so he’s just full of **it. Tonight, I will be beating Eric Price and the WCF World Title is coming home to where it belongs, to the first female World Champion ever, Sarah Twilight. Tick tock … asshole!
Crowd cheers loudly. Sarah Twilight walks off as Hank simply looks on and Eric is shown in the ring with a look of disbelief on his face.
Zach Davis: Well it seems the World Champion’s plan backfired tonight and he will be defending the title later on tonight in our Main Event. What a weasel and a coward!
Shannan Lerch: This is not right, Sarah Twilight was not even supposed to be here, Eric Price should have had the night off.
Zach Davis: I hope she beats his ass!
Eric Price: NO! NO! NO! This was supposed to be my night, this is my title! Fine, you people love that so much, I’ll tell you what you won’t love, when I end Sarah Twilight’s career tonight! Tick tock, tick tock you fucking assholes! Fuck each and every single one of you here tonight because despite all of you, I am still going to remain the WCF World Champion!
Eric flips off the crowd as “You Know My Name” starts playing over the speaker system and the fans really get on him.
Crowd: Nah nah nah nah, nah nah nah nah, hey hey, goodbye! Nah nah nah nah, nah nah nah nah, hey hey, goodbye!
Eric looks completely disgusted with the crowd as he continues to stomp off toward the backstage area.
Zach Davis: Eric Price really losing it here against the fans, his plan did not work and now he must defend the World Title whether he likes it or not and he knows he’s going to lose tonight. You can feel the desperation in his words!
Zach Davis: Well, once again welcome to Explosion.
Shannan Lerch: And our first match, of the evening, is about to start.
The lights dim and blue strobe lights hit the rampway. A song plays over the speakers.
"I hurt myself today.....too see if I still feel....I focus on the pain.....the only thing that's real.....the needle tears a hole.....the old familier sting.....try to kill it all away....but....I remember anyway....What have I become....My sweetest thing....Everyone I know goes away....In the end!....And, you could have it all my empire of dirt... I will let you down i will make you hurt."
"Hurt" by Johnny Cash continues to play over the speakers and out steps the Owner of New Edge Wrestling, Jesse Styles himself wearing black jeans, his black wife beater, black boots, and black sun glasses. He slowly walks down the ramp with a bit of that cold look across his face, just ignoring fans that are booing him loudly.
Shannan Lerch: It looks as if we have Hank Brown standing by backstage.
Zach Davis: Take it away, Hank.
The camera view changes from the front of the announce table to the backstage area, where Hank brown is standing alone.
Hank Brown: Thank you, Zach and Shannan. As you can see I am standing alone.
The backstage lighting begins to flicker.
Hank Brown: Um... I... I was scheduled to be interviewing "The Monster" Oblivion.
The lights flicker with brief moments of the lights being out for a second or two.
Hank Brown: But, as you can see no one is around.
The lights go out.
Zach Davis: Um, we seem to be having technical difficulties.
As the lights remain off, in the backstage area, Hank seems to be talking to someone. Small scattering feet is heard with female giggling.
Hank Brown: I mean c'mon. Didn't Fly pay the damn bills?! I mean c'mon where is the professionalism? And why did it get real cold, all of a sudden?! What just touched me? U mean it!! What the Hell?! There it is again!! Who is touching m.... OW!! What the Hel... OW !! STOP IT!! OW!! That hurts!! OW!!
The lights flicker. The crowd gasp of what they saw briefly.
Shannan Lerch: What the Hell was that?!
Zach Davis: Did we see that correctly?!
The flicker again and THAT time everyone paid attention. What looked like shadows on top of Hank's left shoulder...
Hank Brown: What the Hell is on my shoulder?! GET IT OFF!! GET IT OFF!! OW!! THAT HURT!!
Something IS on Hank Brown's left shoulder chomping down onto Hank, while something has clamped on his right leg, also chomping down. The flicker before coming back on. Hank Brown has several Gathering members surrounding him, as the three members that were biting him are now on the ground and joined their friends. A gathering member brought in, connected with chains, are two "creatures" dressed in penguins suits. One red and one black. Both penguin costumes looked sewn together. The black penguin looks evil, but the red penguin looks possessed. Both "penguins" continue to dig into their front pouches in their suits. It gets much cooler, backstage as The Vixens skip in. Melissa, the head Vixen, walks up to Hank and grab hum, by the back of his head pulling violent;y and proceeds to kiss him forcefully. Melissa backs off, as Oblivion walks in.
Shannan Lerch: What the Hell are we watching?!
Zach Davis: Chaos, mayhem and complete havoc!!
Oblivion slowly walks up to Hank Brown and just stares at him, while looking straight down at Hank Brown.
Hank Brown: Oblivion? Tonight, you have a match against the newcomer Jesse Styles. Any words? What should we expect tonight?
Oblivion just looks at the camera, right as IT speaks...
Oblivion: TORMENT!! AGONY!! TORTURE!!
Hank Brown: What about Jesse Styles?
Oblivion and his entourage walks away.
Hank Brown: Well, I guess that was it.
Oblivion quickly comes back and grabs the mic and quickly starts waving at the camera....
Oblivion: HI JAY!! HI-I-I-I JAY-AY-AY-AY!!
Zach Davis: JAY?
Shannan Lerch: Oh no!! You don't think The Monster means...
Oblivion: HI JAY!! HI JAY PRICE!!! JAY PRICE?! JAY PRICE... HI-I-I-I!
Oblivion is waving frantically, before leaving quickly.
Zach Davis: What the Hell was THAT about?
Shannan Lerch: I have NO-O-O-O idea, Zach!! No idea!
The camera view changes as The house lights go out, as lighter colored lights come on. The multiple cameras pan around a jam packed WCF Arena. The fans are holding up various signs. The atmosphere is explosive and some of the crowd is cheering. While, the rest, of the crowd are booing...
Kyle Steel: Weighing in at 305 pounds, from the deepest, darkest part of a sick man's psyche...... O-O-O-OBLI-I-IVI-I-I-I-O-O-O-O-NN-N-NN-N!!!
The house lights go out. The crowd begins to murmur. Strobe lights begin to flash, as bright white lazers begin to flash. Two bright spotlights hit the entrance stage.
Zach Davis: This always gives me heebie jeebies!!!
Shannan Lerch: After all these years, this monster... this beast still makes me feel uncomfortable!!
As the music continues....
Explosive fire pyro shoots straight up, on the stage and down the ramp.
Zach Davis: HOLY SH-...!! THAT SCARED THE HOLY HELL OUT OF ME!!!
Shannan Lerch: Speaking of "holy Hell" here comes Oblivion.
Then right about that time, Oblivion slowly slinks out, with the lovely Vixens skipping behind The Monster. The gathering are already scattered throughout the crowd. There are some scattered screams throughout the crowd. The music continues the blare out and rattled the arena.
I flew beyond the sun before it was time
Falling from grace cause I've been away too long
NOW I'M LOST IN OBLIVION!!!
Zach Davis: Look at Oblivion!
The cameraman gets real close, as Oblivion sneers at the camera, before thrusting out IT's massive right arm, pushing the cameraman several feet away.
Shannan Lerch: That was NOT necessary!! What did that cameraman do to Oblivion?!?!
Zach Davis: He got in The God of Insanity's way!!
Shannan Lerch: No excuse!!
Zach Davis: Now, that Oblivion has gone past through that whole religious phase, maybe now this Monster of a beast of a man can continue to tear into the competition!!
The Vixens continue to skip around the ring, as The Gathering slowly comes down to the ring, through the crowd. Strobe lights continue to flash.
Zach Davis: I STILL hope, Oblivion doesn't end up as a false prophet. Then the Arena slightly shakes, as the sound of thunder rumbles and as mock lightning flash. The majority, of the crowd, jump.
Shannan Lerch: Like No matter what anyone thinks or says about this... this... nasty nasty individual, Oblivion is STILL a major force to deal with here in the WCF!!
Zach Davis: I agree with you one hundred percent, Shannan!!
Lightning strike the corners corners, of the ring. The loud sounds makes everyone jump out of their seats, once again. Some, of the people are scared out of their minds. Shannan looks down and sees Zach hiding under the commentary table.
Shannan Lerch: for crying out loud. Quit being such a big baby, Zach!! Get up here and sit!! DO YOUR DAMN JOB!!
Zach Davis: Holy....
Shannan Lerch: Love or hate Oblivion, you DO have to give props to The Monster!!
Zach Davis: ....
The lights flicker then... POP!! The strobe lights go out!!
Shannan Lerch: NO!! NO!! NO-O-O-O!!
The lights flicker, then standing in the center of the ring, is Oblivion. the Gathering and The Vixens are kneeling down, with their torsos against the mat, with their arms extended outward, towards Oblivion. Helf the crowd is cheering, while the other half of the crowd is booing.
Zach Davis: The WCF Arena is defiantly divided tonight!
Shannnan Lerch: They sure are!!
The Gathering and The Vixens slowly leave the ring, as the music fades out. A screeching sound echoes throughout the arena, as four lightning bolts strike each corner.
Zach Davis: Ladies and gentleman.... The God of Insanity.... OBLIVION!!!
Jesse Styles was standing outside the ring, as Oblivion entered the squared circle.
Shannan Lerch: Okay people. It looks like Oblivion has the size difference.
Oblivion and Jesse Styles walk up to each other and stare into each others eyes. The crowd gets amped up and excited, as The United Center rattles with excitement.
Zach Davis: Both men lock up with a collar and elbow tie up. Oblivion pushed Styles back into a corner. The referee tries to get in between both monster of men.
Both men refuse to let go of each other, but rather continuing trash talking each other.
Shannan Lerch: WCF Senior Official finally gets both men separated, but it looks Styles just took a cheap shot by slapping Oblivion...
Zach Davis: But Oblivion didn't take that too kindly and proceeds to nail Jesse Styles with a massive shot to the jaw, knocking him down, in the process.
Oblivion grabs the top ring rope and begins to stomp down onto IT's opponent. Styles rolls out of the ring, from under the bottom ring rope.
Shannan Lerch: Apparently, this Jesse Styles didn't do his homework... THIS MONSTER LIKES TO FLY!!
Styles tries to wave off Oblivion and tries to slowly walk up the entrance ramp, but Oblivion quickly climbs up to the top turnbuckle and flies off and....
Zach Davis: A double fist to the top of the head of Jesse Styles!!!
Oblivion picks up Styles...
Shannan Lerch: Sty;es pops The Monster into the mid-section and proceeds to irish-whip Oblivion towards the ring post. Oblivion crashes into the ring post. Styles charges...
Zach Davis: Oblivion moves out of the way. Styles crashes hard into the ring post!
Styles stutters steps backwards, after hitting the post. Oblivion gets behind Styles and picks him up by the waist...
Shannan Lerch: This won't be good.
Zach Davis: OW!
Shannan Lerch: Belly to back suplex!!
Styles hits the ringside mats hard and immediately start to grab his own head in pain. Oblivion grabs Styles and rolls him into the ring.
Zach Davis: Oblivion goes straight into a pinning possibility.
The referee slides into position....
Crowd: On-.... NO-O-O-O!!
Shannan Lerch: Not even a one count!
Jesse Styles sits up shaking his head several times, with a slight painful look on his face. Oblivion grabs Styles.
Zach Davis: Oblivion tosses Jesse Styles into the ropes.
Styles bounces off the ropes...
Shannan Lerch: Oblivion with a boot to the mid-section of Jesse Styles.
Oblivion flies towards the ropes, as Styles remains bent over. The Monster comes screaming up...
Zach Davis: Spinning neck breaker!!
Shannan Lerch: Oblivion is once again going for a pin.
Crowd: Tw-..... NO-O-O-O-O-O!!
Zach Davis: A one and a half count.
Oblivion grabs Styles and throws him towards the ropes.
Shannan Lerch: Styles bounces off the ropes. Oblivion bounces off the ropes, at the other end of the ring.
Oblivion swings wildly with a clothesline attempt....
Zach Davis: Jesse Styles ducks.
Styles ducks the clothesline and bounces off the ropes....
Shannan Lerch: THAT clothesline from Jesse Styles didn't miss.
Zach Davis: Jesse Styles drops a knee across the face of The Monster Oblivion.
Shannan Lerch: Jesse Styles drops another knee across the face of Oblivion.
Zach Davis: Jesse Styles drops with three quick elbow drops, in succession.
Shannan Lerch: Now, he's going for the pin....
Zach Davis: Not even close to a one count. Oblivion immediately denies The Hype Jesse Styles.
Styles grabs Oblivion quickly and double under hooks his arms with the arms of The God of Insanity. The Hype smiles. The crowd boos, as Styles looks around with a wicked grin across his face...
Shannan Lerch: Double underhook suplex!
Oblivion hits the mat hard, but Styles quick runs over to Oblivion.
Zach Davis: Is Jesse Styles going for the pin?
Shannan Lerch: NO!! He's slowly picking up Oblivion...
Zach Davis: Side belly to back suplex!!
Shannan Lerch: WHOA!! That suplex nearly bent Oblivion in half!!
Zach Davis: Jesse Styles is going for the pin.
Stanley Moser slides in for the count....
Crowd: THR-.... NO-O-O-O-O!!
Half of the crowd cheers. Styles stomps down onto Oblivion, but The Monster slowly gets up, shaking IT's head violently.
Shannan Lerch: UH-OH!!
Oblivion begins to shake IT's arms and fists, with an extreme look of rage and anger across IT's face. Styles stomps the gut of Oblivion...
Zach Davis: Nothing.
Styles slaps the face, hits Oblivion with an side elbow and then quickly with an European uppercut....
Zach Davis: Still nothing.
Shannan Lerch: But, wait...
Oblivion proceeds to shake violently the top ring rope, as Styles nails the back of The God of Insanity. Oblivion quickly, very quickly turns around roars out as IT throws out their arms, flexing screaming at The Hype.
Zach Davis: Those screams put the fear on Jesse Styles face!!
Shannan Lerch: No kidding. It would scare me! It still does!!
Styles bounces off the ropes and charges at The Monster. Oblivion drops down onto the mat, as The Hype bounces over, but Oblivion quickly gets up and goes towards the perpendicular side of the ring ropes of which Jesse Styles was bouncing off of.
Zach Davis: They both seem to bouncing off the ropes the same time.
Oblivion gets to the center, of the ring, a micro-second before Styles does.
Shannan Lerch: Leapfrog from Oblivion?!
Styles bounces off the ropes and screams at Oblivion as he rushes towards him.
Zach Davis: The Monster just stands there waiting for The Hype.
Shannan Lerch: But, The Hype continues to rush towards Oblivion.
But, Styles quickly slides between the legs of Oblivion, then gets up fast and grabs the back of the head of The Monster...
Stlyes quickly stands up and approaches the ropes, grabbing the top rope...
Jesse Styles: YEAH!!! I got this!! The Monster is going down!!!
the crowd cheers, as some of the nearby fans tries to warn Styles.
A fan: Look behind you... you idiot!!
Oblivion was standing there, with a very angry look across IT's face. Immediately, Styles tries to grab...
Shannan Lerch: T-Boned?!?!
Oblivion nails Styles with a stiff elbow on the back of the head. Styles kicks the gut of Oblivion, but all that did was make The god of Insanity slap Jesse Styles on the side of the face before grabbing The Hype with a stalling gutwrench...
Zach Davis: I think it's time to call the doctor.
Oblivion continue IT's movement and hits Styles with a gutwrench powerbomb.
Shannan Lerch: FALLING DOCTOR!!
Oblivion attempts a pin attempt.
Zach Davis: this could be it!!
Shannan Lerch: You may be right.
The crowd watches as the referee's hand comes down, what seems like in slow motion....
Crowd: THREE-E-E-E-E.... NO-O-O-O-O!!!
Jesse Styles pushes off Oblivion. The Monster is frustrated. Oblivion proceeds to maniacally stomp down onto The Hype. Oblivion grabs Jesse Styles and tosses him into the ropes...
Zach Davis: Here comes Jesse Styles charging at Oblivion....
Shannan Lerch: TILT-A-WHIRL BACKBREAKER!!
Styles arches his back, screaming out in pain. Oblivion grabs the feet of Oblivion.
Zach Davis: The Monster IS known for some submissions. What does Oblivion have in mind?!
Oblivion looks around with an evil grin before IT begins to swing around Styles.
Shannan Lerch: Brilliant!! GIANT SWING!!
Oblivion bends down to grab for Jesse Styles, but...
Zach Davis: A quick roll up...
Crowd: THREE-E-E-E... NO-O-O-O-O!!
The crowd cheers. Styles quickly gets up, as does Oblivion. The Hype quickly goes behind Oblivion.
Shannan Lerch: FULL NELSON!!!
Styles looks around before....
Zach Davis: I don't think this won't be just a full nelson...
Styles stomps down both of his boots, before....
Shannan Lerch: DAMN!!! Butterfly suplex!!
Zach Davis/Shannan Lerch/ Crowd: WHAT?!?!
Oblivion quickly gets up. Jesse Styles charges...
Zach Davis: Quick back body drop!!
Styles quickly gets up and charges at Oblivion....
Shannan Lerch: A quick release belly to belly suplex!!
That move stuns Jesse Styles, but he had enough sense to slide backwards out of the ring. Oblivion quickly runs to the corner and climbs up to the top turnbuckle.
Zach Davis: The Hype doesn't see Oblivion perching, stalking him.
Styles turns around as Oblivion is flying through the air with a pescado.
Shannan Lerch: DAMN!!!

Shannan Lerch: NO-O-O-O-O-O!!
Zach Davis: T-BONED!!!

Shannan Lerch: Devastating move!!
Zach Davis: But, he cannot pin Oblivion outside of the ring!!
Shannan Lerch: True!! What the Hell?!?!
Melissa, the head Vixen, jumps onto the ring apron. Immediately, Stanley Moser admonishes Melissa. Jesse Styles grabs for a dead weight Oblivion. As soon as The monster was turned around....
Shannan Lerch: OH HELL!! Instant disqualification!!
Zach Davis: But, Melissa is trying to get into the ring, but the referee is stopping her.
Shannan Lerch: BITCH!!
Oblivion spewed out IT's Blue Haze Mist into the face/eyes of Jesse Styles. Oblivion takes advantage, as IT slowly stands up IT grabs for Styles and rams his head into the ring post. Styles collapses to one knee, grabbing for his head. Styles' head is exposed and a small trickle of blood is shown. Oblivion takes IT's filthy long dirty thumb nail and digs it into the laceration. Styles scream out....
Jesse Styles: NO-O-O-O!!!
Zach Davis: EW-W-W GROSS!!
Shannan Lerch: OH MY GOD!!
Oblivion proceeds to gnaw on the wound, chewing then eventually spitting out a chunk of Styles' forehead. Styles begins to roll around in pain, bleeding everywhere. Oblivion grabs the back of the head of Styles...
Oblivion: Did you think you could compete withe God of Insanity?!?!?
Oblivion throws Styles into the ring side barrier, in a heap.
Zach Davis: Did you just see that, Shannan?!?!
Shannan Lerch: Yea I did!! Jesse Styles' body was tossed hard into the barrier.
Oblivion pushes the face and head of Jesse Styles into the barrier. But...
With Stanley Moser being slighted distracted he didn't quite see Jesse Styles nailing Oblivion with a low blow. That stagger the big man back, as Styles pushes Oblivion back into the barrier...
Styles grabs Oblivion and whips him towards the ring...
Zach Davis: Oblivion's back hits the edge of the ring apron.
Oblivion slides walks away from the ring, Jesse Styles picks up Oblivion...
Shannan Lerch: UM....

Zach Davis: Jesse Styles needs to get Oblivion in the ring.
Styles grabs Oblivion and slides him into the ring.
Shannan Lerch: What is he doing?! He should be going for the pin!!

Zach Davis: Oblivion pushes Jesse Styles off.
Shannan Lerch: Styles bounces off the ropes...
Zach Davis: Big shoulder block from Styles.
Styles rushes towards the ring, as Oblivion begins to stand up...
Shannan Lerch: A knee to the head of Oblivion!! That looked like it knocked out Oblivion!!
Zach Davis: The Hype is going for the pin...
Crowd: THREE-E-E-E-E!! NOO-O-O-O-O-O!!
Shannan Lerch: Damn!! This match is getting good. Not bad for the opening match!!
Jesse Styles slowly picks up Oblivion!!
Jesse Styles: Now time to finish off The Monster!!
Styles gets Oblivion in a suplex position...
Shannan Lerch: It looks like it's time for The Styles Drop!!
Styles picks up Oblivion, but The Monster quickly wiggles around and escapes away from The Hype.
Zach Davis: Oblivion stomps the gut of Jesse Styles and gets him into a fireman's carry...
Shannan Lerch: AIRPLANE SPIN!! Old school!!
Oblivion spins Jesse Styles around before....
Zach Davis: POWERBOMB!!
Shannan Lerch: Oblivion is going for the pin!!
The crowd is absolutely going crazy!! Their deafening cheers is making the commentators to speak, even through their headsets.
Crowd: THREE-E-E-EE-E!! NO-O-O-O-O!! WHAT?!?!?
Oblivion is obviously getting frustrated. The Monster proceeds to stomp onto the body of Jesse Styles.
Crowd: S! T! O! M! P!
Oblivion grabs to pick up Styles....

Shannan Lerch: OH NO... HERE COMES OBLIVION!!!
Oblivion comes rushing into the corner...
Zach Davis: CORNER SPLASH!!
Shannan Lerch: Bulldog!!
Jesse Styles slowly gets up as oblivion waits, stalks for Jesse Styles. The Hype gets up and looks around....
Zach Davis: IT'S CHECK OUT TIME!!
Shannan Lerch: Super kick!!
Jesse Styles spins around. Oblivion grabs him and puts Styles in a fireman's carry. Oblivion sneers as a spins Styles' body around, by flipping his feet off IT's shoulders and nails Styles with a cutter.
Zach Davis: 5150!!
Shannan Lerch: This could be it!!
Zach Davis: Yep that IS it!!
Kyle Steel: The winner of the match... O-O-O-OBLI-I-IVI-I-IO-ON!!
Oblivion automatically leaves the ring and grabs the mic away from Kyle Steel.
Shannan Lerch: What the Hell is THIS all about?! He already defeated Jesse Styles!!
Oblivion grins an evil sneer, as IT waves...
Oblivion: HI JAY!! HI JAY PRICE!! HI JAY!! OBLIVION CAN SEE-E-E-E YOU-OU-OU-OU!!
The sound of the mic crashing down to the mat echoes throughout the arena. Oblivion just approaches the ropes and with IT's right boot braces against the middle rope, Oblivion just hugs the top rope and just smiles, as the camera gets real close.
Master of Puppets hits.
Zach Davis: HEY! This isn't our next match!
Seth Lerch, also known as Sethcretary thanks to the current WCF CEO, steps out from the back. The fans boo as the former owner of the company walks to the ring.
Shannan Lerch: Seth has been incredibly depressed since One, where Jonny Fly beat him for the ownership of the company.
Seth slides in and grabs a mic.
Seth Lerch: Well-
The booing is too loud. Seth glares at the fans as they start a SETH-CRE-TARY chant. In a mean way, of course. Eventually they quiet down a bit and he can talk.
Seth Lerch: Well it's been a few months now and I've been playing Jonny Fly's little game. I've been staying in the back, mostly keeping my mouth shut, rarely getting involved. But I'm sick of it.
Seth Lerch: Tonight, our esteemed CEO faces Steve Orbit in a match in which he's threatened to fire Orbit if he loses! What kind of CEO threatens to fire people for his personal amusement!?
Zach Davis: WHAT?! Seth used to set up "You're Fired" Battle Royals, where everyone eliminated got fired! He-
Shannan Lerch: Those were just cost cutting measures, Zach. Not personal.
Zach Davis: Oh come on..
Seth Lerch: The kind of CEO that does that? A RACIST CEO. Steve Orbit is pretty much the only African American on the roster, and Jonny Fly singles him out!? Clearly racist. But let's face facts. It's not just that. It isn't right that Fly and his buddies are running the show, and each and everyone one of you knows it.
Seth Lerch: NO! No. I'm not talking to you, fans. I'm talking to YOU, the boys in the back. And girls. I'm talking to you, Steve Orbit. FPV. Sarah Twilight. I'm talking to you, Rebellion. I'm talking to you, Oblivion. And you, Christopher Kane.
Mixed reaction from the crowd.
Seth Lerch: It's funny. Whenever I'm the owner, everyone was always gunning for me. But now that Jonny Fly and Pantheon are the owners, no one has bothered trying to overthrow him!? COME ON! Either way, the way I see it, I need to know who is with me. If any of you are going to do more than talk, and any of you are ACTUALLY interested in taking down Pantheon... let me know. Or just continue to let Pantheon dominate you. Either way.
Master of Puppets plays again as Seth exits the ring.
Shannan Lerch: Uh... I don't think Seth's boss is going to like THAT little speech.
Zach Davis: I'm sure he's not! We'll see how the rest of the roster reacts and if anyone steps up or not.
Shannan Lerch: Next up we have The Ninja versus Magnus!
Zach Davis: Ah, a battle of the Japanese versus the Russians!
Shannan Lerch: The Ninja’s are Japanese?
Zach Davis: You truly are dumb, Shannan.
The USSR flag proudly waves the screen WCF video as an octet of singers take the stage, four men and four women on the number of microphones, as the music starts, and they sing the Russian national anthem, as Magnus comes out from the back, proudly waving the flag of Russia, the crowd almost drowning him even louder chorus of boos and "Russia Sucks" chants. Magnus unphased by the
Shannan Lerch: I’m weirdly attracted to this man. I don’t think I’ve ever had a Russian before.
Zach Davis: You don’t think you have a Russian?
Shannan Lerch: Well, sometimes I black out. I don’t know probably 70% of the people I’ve had sex with. Sometimes I’m just walking down the street and someone comes up to me talking about the time we….
Zach Davis: ….AND enough of that. Here comes The The Ninja!
The arena lights go dark.
"Well I am The Ninja,
The song becomes slow to silence. Suddenly, Walls of Innocence by Egypt Central is blasted through the arena. Suddenly, pyro is blasted on stage. The The Ninja is standing on the titantron, hands on hips with a belt. The crowd starts to cheer. He glides down through the rafters. Nearby the ring, he lets go of the buckle and leaps down on the ring. He lands on his feet and gives the crowd an intense stare. He climbs up the turnbuckle and looks at the crowd. He raises his arm. He gets off and performs a kata. Then, he warms up.
Shannan Lerch: Looks like we’re about to get started.
Zach Davis: The winner of this matchup becomes the number one contender for the Television Title. Best of luck to both men.
Shannan Lerch: Go Magnus go!
Ding, Ding, Ding.
The bell rings and the match begins. Magnus and The Ninja lock up in the center of the ring with the bigger Magnus getting the early advantage. Magnus whips The Ninja into the ropes and as The Ninja bounces back Magnus takes him down with a huge clothesline.
Magnus reaches down with both hands and picks The Ninja up by the throat. Magnus positions himself behind The Ninja and then lifts him into the air locking in a bear hug. The Ninja screams out in pain and attempts to wiggle out of the hold. Magnus locks in the hold tighter, and The Ninja screams out in pain once again. Finally, The Ninja wiggles his arm out of the hold, and lands an elbow to Magnus’s skull. There blow does little damage, as Magnus simply picks The Ninja up and powerslams him into the mat.
Shannan Lerch: The Russian looks really impressive here in the early going. So strong, so powerful, so…
Zach Davis: Hold it together, Shannan.
Shannan Lerch: Is it hot in here? Would you mind if I take off my blouse?
Zach Davis: *almost throws up*
The Ninja gets back up to his feet and ties up again with Magnus. This time The Ninja super-stealthly gouges the eye of Magnus. The Ninja continues his assault with a headbutt knocking Magnus back against the turnbuckle. The Ninja walks over, straddles Magnus with his feet on the bottom rope and begins delivering a flurry of punches to Magnus’s head. After three…four…five punches, Magnus uses his strength to throw The Ninja off of him.
Zach Davis: Great show of strength by Magnus!
Shannan Lerch: MMMM. Yeah it was.
Inside the ring The Ninja gathers himself and Magnus rises out of the corner. For the third time in the match the two square up in center of the ring, and once again The Ninja gains an advantage with a side headlock and then takes him down to the mat with a headlock takedown. The Ninja quickly picks Magnus back up and whips him against the ropes. As Magnus bounces back The Ninja stops his momentum with a kick to the gut and then takes him back down with a swinging neckbreaker.
Shannan Lerch: Impressive series there by the Japanese covert agent!
Zach Davis: What?
Shannan Lerch: Ninja’s are covert Zach, how do you not know that?
Zach Davis: Yeah, but do we really know he’s like…a real ninja?
Shannan Lerch: Of course he’s a real ninja. He’s wearing all black and knows sweet karate moves.
The Ninja rises to his feet and stares down at Magnus behind his steel curtain of black ninja attire. Magnus gets back to his feet and The Ninja moves toward him as he approaches. Magnus reaches out and grabs him by the throat, picks him up, and slams him back to the mat. He goes for the first cover of the matchup.
Zach Davis: No! The Ninja kicks out.
Shannan Lerch: I didn’t see him kick out. He’s a ninja, how could you see him kick out?
Zach Davis: Because…he kicked out…and everyone saw it.
Shannan Lerch: So, maybe he’s not a real ninja?
Magnus grabs The Ninja and picks him back up to his feet. He whips him into the turnbuckle. Magnus runs toward The Ninja and jumps splashing his body and all two-hundred plus pounds of his weight into The Ninja, causing him to slump to the ground.
Zach Davis: CRRUNNCCH!
Shannan Lerch: Sexiest body splash ever, Zach. EVER.
Magnus grabs The Ninja and picks him up once again. He picks the smaller ninja up and begins spinning him in the air…
Zach Davis: Things aren’t looking good for The Ninja right now…
Magnus releases the spin, tossing The Ninja face first toward the mat..only, The Ninja is able to contort himself in time to land on his feet. BECAUSE HE’S A FUCKING NINJA. As Magnus turns around The Ninja lands a DDT taking Magnus down to the mat. The Ninja quickly springs to his feet and makes his way toward the closest turnbuckle. He climbs to the top, turns himself around, and flies off hitting Magnus with a moonsault from the top rope!
Shannan Lerch: WHOA. That was a big-time move.
Zach Davis: He’s a highly trained assassin Shannan, and he may have just killed your Russian boyfriend.
The Ninja goes for the cover.
Shannan Lerch: Kickout by Magnus! YES! HE’S SO TOUGH!
Zach Davis: That was close. Damn close.
The Ninja rolls off of Magnus and back to his feet. Magnus still lies motionless on the canvas. The Ninja turns and heads back to the turnbuckle, climbing once again to the top. He flies off, looking for the ‘Fist of Fury’….
Shannan Lerch: Magnus moved! He’s sexy, tough, and SMART!
Magnus rolls out of the way and The Ninja falls helplessly to the mat. Magnus quickly gets back to his feet ready to capitalize on the miss. He grabs The Ninja and picks him up to his feet. He lifts him into the air the air and sends him right back down with the ‘Lennon Bomb!’
Shannan Lerch: BOOM! Pin him!
Zach Davis: It looks like he has something else in mind.
Magnus again gets to his feet, bringing The Ninja up with him. He sends a right hand toward The Ninja’s face, knocking him back against the ropes. Magnus moves in, and swings him off the ropes. As The Ninja bounces back Magnus sends a big boot to his skull knocking him to the mat. Magnus reaches down and picks The Ninja up….and then destroys him with ‘The Apollo Killer!’
Shannan Lerch: THE APOLLO KILLER!
Zach Davis: Jackhammer right into the pin. Goodnight, Ninja.
Shannan Lerch: Magnus wins! He’s now the number one contender for the Television Title which means…we’ll get to see him on television a lot more! Whoo!
Zach Davis: In other words, congratulations to Magnus on his biggest win in his short career.
Magnus celebrates in the ring, to the disdain of the crowd, as we go to commercial.
The titantron flickers and and a small white light appears in the middle of it, as light widens a symbol appears with FEAR 284... as a sinister laugh fills the arena followed by he's here as the laugh continues fading out as quickly as it fades in.
The crowd begins to buzz, wondering what this means.
Zach Davis: Hmmm...
Zach Davis: The “Cold War” between the WCF stables continues in our next match, as Rebellion member Blizzard faces off against former World Champion Frank Patrick Venable of Genesis.
Shannan Lerch: There’s more on the line than just bragging rights though, since the winner will become Number One Contender to the United States Championship currently held by Pantheon’s own Jay Price!
”Unforgiven 2” by Metallica starts playing as the arena turns blue. White and blue pyros go off on the stage as low laying fog fills the entrance ramp. Blizzard comes down slapping the hands of fans as he enters the ring he stands on the second turn buckle pointing at the fans then raising his arms as lights come back on.
Zach Davis: The Juneauian Giant is a crowd favorite, and while he is a highly decorated journeyman wrestler, he has yet to win championship gold in the WCF.
Shannan Lerch: And since linking up with the upstart group Rebellion, he’s been on a dominant run, hence the chance at a title shot tonight.
The lights turn to a blood red as the crowd stands up on their feet, as "Ghosts 'n Stuff" hits the P.A and FPV, signature duster and Genesis T-Shirt, comes out the curtains. He plays to excited crowd like the circus ringmaster, fistbumping furiously along with the crowd and the music, and each fistbump triggers an explosion of black pyro from the stage. FPV takes the walk down the ramp, slapping fans hands before climbing the steps and on top of the turnbuckles, where he fistbumps one more time, sending one more explosion of pyro throughout the arena. He climbs into the ring and sits in a lotuc position in the corner, waiting for the match to start.
Shannan Lerch: Blizzard may be popular, but there is almost no one the WCF Faithful loves more than “The Boudle Slayer” FPV. A Grand Slam Champion, and former United States Champion, you know he still would love the chance to take the US Title away from Jay Price.
Zach Davis: You’re assuming Price will retain after his match with Tek tonight, Shannan, which is no sure thing.
FPV and Blizzard square off as the referee goes over instructions. Just before the ref motions for the bell FPV offers his opponent his hand. The pair shake, and the match begins. Blizzard goes to lock up, but Franky jukes out of the way and hits his shins with several shoot kicks. He then ducks away from a clubbing forearm and starts throwing knife edge chops at Blizzard’s chest.
Shannan Lerch: FPV trying to soften up the much bigger man with those strikes.
Zach Davis: He better be careful not to get too close. Blizzard is a powerhouse, and has nearly 150 pounds on him.
Blizzard takes a couple steps back because of the shots, but then lurches forward and connects with a shoulder block. FPV is staggered. Blizzard follows that up with a clothesline that knocks Franky to the mat. Pulling him up, Blizzard puts FPV in a standing side headlock and begins torqueing his neck.
Zach Davis: This is exactly the situation FPV does not want to be in. If Blizzard can keep him from sticking and moving, he will have a huge advantage in this contest.
After several seconds in the hold FPV is able to wriggle free. When Blizzard turns to face him Franky hits a standing dropkick that puts them both down. The former World champ gets to his feet first, and runs the ropes, coming back with a running clothesline that knocks Blizzard on his ass. He follows that up with multiple fist drops, and then hooks Blizzard’s leg for the cover. One! Blizzard throws him off with authority.
Shannan Lerch: I guess Blizzard doesn’t "liek fist drops".
FPV rolls away from Blizzard, who gets to his feet. Franky charges, but Blizzard stops him cold with an elbow smash. He whips him to the ropes and when FPV rebounds lifts him up for a sidewalk slam. Propping FPV up, he transitions into a reverse chinlock, grounding the smaller man.
Zach Davis: The Icy Assassin is once again targeting his opponent’s neck, no doubt trying to soften him up for his “Blizzard Warning” submission.
FPV grabs Blizzard’s hands and pries them away from his chin enough to duck under and out of the hold. He scrambles away, holding the back of his neck as he stands. Blizzard gets up and charges. Franky takes him down with an armdrag. Blizzard rises and runs at him again with a clothesline. FPV crouches and floats behind him, executing a crucifix pin attempt. One! Two! Kickout. Both men scramble to their feet, eyeing one another warily.
Shannan Lerch: Still a lot of fight left in Frank Venable.
Zach Davis: And he’s doing what he has to do to win this match: striking quickly and keeping Blizzard off balance.
FPV leaps at Blizzard and kicks him in the chest. He follows that up with several chops. Blizz hammers back with a haymaker but FPV keeps swinging. His foe hits him with another forearm shiv, and then clubs him on the back. Hoisting him up, Blizzard tosses Franky across the ring with a belly to belly suplex. Then he goes to make the cover. One! Two! FPV gets his arm up.
Zach Davis: Nice belly to belly suplex by the Rebellion member.
Blizzard drags Franky to his feet and whips him to the corner. He attempts to follow that up with a body avalanche, but FPV raises his leg up and kicks him square in the mush. As Blizzard staggers, FPV climbs to the top rope and leaps off to try a sunset slip, but Blizz recovers and catches him by the throat. Chokeslam. Cover. One! Two! Franky kicks out.
Shannan Lerch: Franky went high risk, and it almost cost him.
Blizzard gets up and shakes his head. He slams his forearm against FPV’s back, and then gets in position for a powerbomb.
Zach Davis: I think there’s a Perfect Storm brewing!
The big man lifts FPV up on his shoulders, but before he can throw him back down, Franky starts wildly punching at his head. Blizzard is stunned, allowing FPV to shift into an electric chair position, covering his opponent’s eyes. Stumbling towards the apron, Blizzard takes an awkward tumble outside the ring, smacking the back of his head against the ground, while Franky holds on to the top rope.
Shannan Lerch: Yeah, well, it looks to me like Franky’s Jockeying for Position!
As the crowd pops for the move, FPV stalks Blizzard from the apron. He waits for him to stand and turn before charging and jumping, driving his knee right into Blizzard’s face. Both crash to the mat outside, though it’s clear that Blizzard has taken the worst of the fall.
Zach Davis: Blizzard looks out of it!
Shannan Lerch: Did you see how he cracked his head on the floor? He might be concussed!
The ref begins to count both men out. One! Two! Three! FPV gets up. Four! He tugs at Blizzard, trying to get him to his feet.
Shannan Lerch: I don’t know why Franky is trying to get Blizzard back into the ring: a count out victory is just as good as a pinfall win in a Contender’s Match.
Zach Davis: That may be true, but pinning Blizzard will send a much more definitive message to Rebellion.
The count out continues. Five! Six! FPV finally is able to roll Blizzard back into the ring. He leans against the ropes, gesturing towards Blizzard, coaxing him to stand. The Face Painted Foeman of the Far North woozily rises, and Franky attacks with a superkick.
Crowd: Boom! Headshot!
FPV connects with the kick, and Blizzard goes down. Lateral Press cover. One! Two! Three! The ref calls for the bell, and Franky leaps to his feet, celebrating.
Kyle Steel: Here is your winner, and new Number One Contender for the United States Championship, Frank Patrick Venable!
The crowd cheers as FPV has his arm raised. Blizzard quietly exits the ring and heads to the back.
Zach Davis: It was a back and forth battle that either man could have won, but Frank Patrick Venable has come out on top.
Shannan Lerch: And now he has the chance to face either Jay Price or his Genesis stablemate Tek for the US Title. And while it’s likely he’s rooting for the Wildcard tonight to win, you have believe part of him wants to be the one to take the belt away from current champion Jay Price.
The scene ends with FPV climbing all four turnbuckles, leading the fans in a “Genesis!” chant.
The arena goes completely black, as the titontron snows in, jumping through many quick flash photos. one of a run down large old building, then a sequence of photos showing what looks to be an abandoned hospital along with some mid evil looking torture devices. As the picture focuses we see what appears to be a holding room, A bed with leather tie downs is along the side of the room as well as there are various papers and items scattered throughout the area as far as the camera can see. Everything is silent and still, as the camera pans around the room there is movement caught to the left of the screen. The camera jumps to the source of the movement to see a person sitting in the corner of the room wearing a black jump suit, legs pulled up close with their arms wrapped around their legs and head down.
Voice: No..You can't do that..We can't do that..They will punish us...
The person, now known to be a man from the voice, begins rocking back and forth.
Man: Your right..They are sheep, all sheep..We will do to them what they've done to us! We've been in the darkness too long, Soon they will know the wrath, soon they will feel all of the pain we have felt for so long!
The man lifts his head, He wears a mask. as his hair falls to the side it is a horrific site. The mask is stained with blood and depicts a very disfigured, almost demonic face. The titontron snaps to a black screen as a deafening primal scream is heard throughout the arena, it fades away as the lights come back up to normal..
Zach Davis: Time for our Tag Team Titles Contendership match! Three teams, but only one can get the shot.
The clashing of two swords fills the arena for a couple of seconds as the lights dim, before the sound of a shotgun goes off. "Back For More" by Five Finger Death Punch starts to play as Morientes comes out from the back, dressed in his usual fighting attire. Posing for the crowd for a few moments, the lights come back on as the first verse of the song is belted, and he makes his way to the ring while nodding at cheering fans.
Morientes slides into the ring and raise his arms into the air for fan reaction. He then sheds his leather jacket in the middle of the ring, and throws it to the crowd. Next, he climbs up the upper left turnbuckle, gesturing to the crowd. After that, Morientes jumps back to the mat and starts stretching, awaiting the referee to start the match.
"From Madrid, Spain, weighing in at two hundred and twenty two pounds, The Bull... MORIENTES!"
“Things That You Oughta Know” by Chronic Future blasts over the P.A. System. John Gable enters through the current wearing a baseball cap, sunglasses, a leather jacket acting as if he was trying not to be noticed. He looks out to the crowd while trying to hide his face. He steps down the ramp as Humphrey Craig followed with a sign reading “future Oscar recipient”. John Gable slides into the ring and rips off his 'disguise'.
Personal Jesus begins to play as the green flashing lights eliminate the arena. Al comes out to a huge ovation and slaps a few hands. He then springboards into the ring and climbs up to all four turnbuckles to acknowledge the crowd. He then hops down and starts to stretch waiting for his opponents.
Pink pyro showers from the top of the entrance way as Tori Notorious walks on to the ramp.
The arena goes dark and all of a sudden a large blue O appears on the WCFtron. "Crush'em" by Megadeath starts playing as the rest of the word "Order" appears on the WCftron. Two blue lights fall from the rafters and smoke billows from the entrance. Odin and Zeus step out into the arena. They walk slowly towards the ring as the lights fade back up. They reach the ring and climb up into the ring ready for battle.
Shannan Lerch: To go over the rules, WCF does three team tag matches like this: one man from each team in the ring at once, and he can only tag his partner. Different companies do it differently, but thats how we roll.
The bell sounds. Zeus, Al Envy, and John Gable decide to start the match for their teams. The three meet in the middle of the ring.
Zach Davis: Who is going to start the offensive here?
Gable nods to Envy, and the two of them grab Zeus and throw him out of the ring!
Shannan Lerch: Guess those two want the spotlight!
Gable and Envy then turn towards each other and tie up. Gable gets the early advantage, putting Envy in a headlock, but Envy shoves him off into the ropes. Gable comes back and Envy drops him with a Shoulder Block. Envy runs to the ropes, goes for an Elbow Drop, but Gable rolls away. Gable gets to his feet and Envy runs at him, Gable takes him to the mat with a Headlock Takedown. Envy uses his legs to scissor Gable's head, but after several moments Gable is able to grab Envy's legs and turns this into a pinning predicament!
No, Envy breaks out of it. Both men get to their feet and the crowd applauds them.
Zach Davis: Good back and forth there.
However, Zeus slides back into the ring, out of the eyesight of the other two competitors. He runs at them and hits a Double Lariat to the back of each of their heads!, and the crowd begins booing. Zeus quickly tags Odin and the two men begin stomping their competition!
Shannan Lerch: Oh come on!
Morientes and Notorious don't let this go on for long; they enter the ring and attack Zeus and Odin, brawling with them!
Zach Davis: All hell has broken loose.. already!
Morientes runs at Odin, Clotheslining him over the top rope and sending both men flying to the outside. Notorious hits Zeus with a Dropkick, sending him stumbling back; she runs at him but he hits a Back Bodydrop, sending her flying to the outside of the ring!
Shannan Lerch: Agh! Tori Notorious lands hard out there.
We're left with only the legal men in the ring. Zeus turns to Gable and Envy, who are to their feet. The two of them quick Zeus in the gut and then quickly hit him with a Double Suplex.
Zach Davis: Don't mistake this for any comradre between Envy and Gable; they just have a common dislike for Zeus, I think.
Following the Suplex, Gable quickly runs to the ropes, and hits Envy with a knee to the face before Envy knows what hit him. Gable quickly tags in Morientes.
Shannan Lerch: Here comes Morientes!
Morientes measures Envy as he starts to get to his feet, runs at him and hits a Step Up Enziguri!
Zach Davis: Another big strike to Al Envy's head! Rebellion may have given him a concussion!
Morientes quickly goes for a pin.
No!, Envy kicks out.
Shannan Lerch: Not quite yet! For a while Al Envy's brief WCF career was a joke among the boys, but Envy is really proving himself since returning.
Morientes stomps at Envy a few times before beginning to lift him up. As he does, though, Envy hits him with a variety of strikes to the midsection, breaking away; Envy then irish whips him to the ropes and hits a Belly to Belly Suplex!
Zach Davis: Big move by Envy!
Instead of going for a pin, however, Envy tags in Tori Notorious. Notorious watches as Morientes gets to his feet, and as he turns around she Springboards and hits a Diving Crossbody Block into a pin!
No!, Morientes gets out of it. Notorious stands but Zeus grabs her, turns her around, grabs her and hits a Running Powerslam into pin!
Shannan Lerch: Zeus out of nowhere, this could be it!
No! Notorious kicks out!
Zach Davis: Another nearfall, not quite!
Zeus tags in Odin. Odin comes in and picks Morientes up before Morientes can interfere and tosses him out of the ring. The crowd boos as Odin then picks up Tori Notorious and lifts her into the Powerbomb position.
Shannan Lerch: Uh oh.. here comes his finisher!
But no, while she's up there Notorious punches him in the head several times, causing him to fall back with her landing on top of him in a pin!
No! Odin kicks out!
Zach Davis: Zeus and Odin are huge men. Tori Notorious is going to have to give it her all if she intends to pin them. Size isn't EVERYTHING, but it's definitely something.
Tori runs to the ropes, but once she hits them Morientes trips her from the outside. She turns around and Morientes jumps onto the apron, grabbing her head and snapping it against the top rope. Morientes then slides back into the ring and grabs her, picks her up and hits a Fireman's Carry Gutbuster!
Shannan Lerch: OUCH! What a move!
Morientes pins Notorious.
NO!, Envy gets into the ring and breaks it up! Envy then waits for Morientes to get to his feet, runs at him....
Zach Davis: JAWBREAKER LARIAT! Showstealer indeed!
Envy quickly rolls out of the ring as Notorious pins Morientes.
NO! Odin breaks it up!
Shannan Lerch: Notorious and Envy almost picked up the win there!, had it not been for The Order!
Odin tags Zeus back in. Odin quickly decks Al Envy, sending him flying to the outside, as Zeus picks up Notorious. They then get her in position for a Powerbomb/Running Neckbreaker combo.
Zach Davis: They're going to finish her off... here comes The Promise!
But as they're doing so, Morientes tags in Gable. Zeus picks Tori up for a Powerbomb, but Morientes intercepts Odin, hitting him with a huge Roundhouse kick. Zeus Powerbombs Tori, but Gable then grabs Zeus, spins him around, and hits him with an Inverted Brainbuster..
Shannan Lerch: Uh oh, here comes City Lights!
..And he locks in the Dragon Sleeper! Zeus yells in pain for several moments before he's forced to tap out!
Zach Davis: MORIENTES AND GABLE WIN! REBELLION WINS IT!
The fans actually begin to cheer as Gable gets to his feet. The ref raises the arms of Morientes and Gable as Al Envy checks on Tori Notorious.
Shannan Lerch: Well, assuming Steve Orbit is still employed by WCF after tonight and Nathan von Liebert doesn't murder Waylon Cash, Morientes and Gable have earned themselves the right to challenge the Homegrown Players for the Tag Team Titles!
Zach Davis: I don't think we've seen the last from Envy and Notorious, however, that's for sure.
The cameras switch to the hallways backstage where a man is stood in a hallway in dark blue jeans which are faded on the front; he has a deep red shirt on and pumps to match as the camera pans up everybody can see that it is new comer Beholder! He has a look which tells a story of something is not going to plan. Beholder appears to be talking to somebody but doesn't have a phone in his hand, but as he turns his head to show a Bluetooth headset can be seen over his ear.
Beholder: Look I know that I didn't have a plan for the first week here, but that is only because I wanted to see what was going on and get a feel for how the land lies, I know you only want what is best but...
It looks like whoever Beholder is on the phone to, is trying to explain but gets interrupted.
Beholder: Stop right there, I never once planned to come here without my meds, I know that they make me a happier person and also keep the demons away… granted those demons have helped me win a title or two but before they were a part of me I managed to hold a belt or two. I just hope that people don’t expect too much from me, after all I am getting older I have a lot on my mind… I know that is why you thought I would come here with the chain unleashed but that is not the case I have ideas of my own that I want to try first.
Beholder begins to walk down the hallway with the camera following close behind just trying to find out as much information on Beholder as possible
Beholder: Yes I know it can backfire, yes I know the meds haven’t worked to well in the past but I really feel that this is the time and place where I can start to rebuild my life, the world has fallen around me and when I was wrestling it was a simpler time… granted not always that simple but I had to get away, it was killing me and I know what I have to do… as I said before this first week was just to get a feel for the land and make sure it was the right call.
Beholder seems to be getting frustrated about the cameraman listening in but restrains himself from doing anything
Beholder: I think that maybe you should come over and come out of retirement, I know that I can trust you most of the time… what do you mean that you want a new look, how is that even possible… … … I guess, but we shall work on that if you do decide to come here… oh and just you I don’t need the others for now… I know, I know… but as I keep saying I don’t know what is going to happen so we shall take it one day at a time… if you catch the next flight you will be here and ready to film and interview me once again like the old times, what do you say are you in?
Beholder fist pumps the air with joy but tries to remain cool and composed on the phone.
Beholder: Well cool, look forward to you coming over so we can really get this show on the road, now I need to get ready as I am going to go and watch the main event… who is in it, I don’t know but it is the main event hopefully somebody that is going to put up a challenge,... ok… yeah that sounds good, I will catch you later, bye.
Beholder turns to the camera and smiles.
Beholder: So it looks like you won’t be needed soon so make the most of catching your exclusives around me… now which way is it to the arena? A person can get easily lost around here.
The camera man must point which way to go as Beholder thanks him and walks off into the direction of the entrance.
So it seem that Beholder is determined to do this the old fashioned way by using his own mind and keep it simple, how long it lasts nobody can tell… until next time!
Shannan Lerch: I'm excited for what's next!
Zach Davis: The Hardcore title match? Is it because of the terror that Vengeance is on right now, having just won the Internet Championship and decimated Jesse Styles in a one week span?
Shannan Lerch: No.
Zach Davis: Perhaps for the awe of the great Doc Henry, the ravenous woman chaser who managed to pry the title from the soulless hands of the hardcore beast known as Nathan Von Liebert?
Shannan Lerch: No, I want to see that bastard BLEED! He puked all over my favorite panties, then SLAMMED a dent into the hood of my car, AND spilt his blood all over the inside of the door and floorboard!!
Kyle Steel: Ladies and Gentlemen, the following match is a no holds barred, anything goes contest for the Hardcore Championship! Coming to the ring first, standing at six feet six, weighing in at 325 lbs.. The “VIOOOOOLENT NIGHTMARE”, VENGEANCE!!!
“Nightmare” by Avenged Sevenfold begins to sneak into the ears of the crowd with its soft melodic opening. As the first bell tolls at the start of the song the lights go out in the arena and PAIN, SUFFERING, VIOLENCE appears on the titantron in blood red dripping letters. On the second bell pyros go off on the stage then fog fills the entrance ramp as red lights fill the arena the music starts as Vengeance slowly makes his way down to the ring. As he approaches the ring he stops and looks in the ring before making his way to the ring steps. Vengeance slowly climbs the ring steps entering the ring through the second rope he walks to the center of the ring. Vengeance stops in the center of the ring the arena lights go out as a single red light shines over Vengeance he slowly raises his arms as four individual bursts of fire come from each ring post one by one as arena lights slowly turn on.
Kyle Steel: And his opponent, the reigning Hardcore Champion, The Confederate Ambassador, The Mustache of the South, standing at six foot five and weighing in at 235 lbs., DOC. THE COCK. HENRYYYY!!!
Dr. Feelgood hits the speakers and as the main riff blasts through the arena, Doc, and Mary emerge on the stage. Looking around, he raises a fist in the air, the crowd cheering wildly as he then leads the way to the ring. About halfway down, however, the lights go completely out in the arena, and a bell begins to toll.
Zach Davis: What is going on?! A rolling blackout?
Shannan Lerch: Don't be so afraid of the dark, Davis.. Geez, do I need to get you a nightlight?
As the lights begin to return, Doc Henry stands halfway down the entrance without his wife Mary by his side, nowhere to be seen. Instead, there are three men surrounding him, cloaked in red robes.
Zach Davis: Look! On the ramp!
Doc Henry looks past the shadowy figures to see that three more men in white robes stand at the top of the ramp way, two holding Mary by her arms and the third behind her with a hand over her mouth while she tries to scream.
Shannan Lerch: The Sixx Demons of Hell! Vengeance's little minions have Mary! I don't like her douche of a husband, but things look bad right now for her.
Doc becomes furious and tries to run towards her, but the three robed men form a wall to prevent him. He wastes no time laying one out with a haymaker! As the other two try to grab him he sends a stiff elbow behind him that connects directly to the jaw of the Demon on his right. The last one takes a swing at him, which he ducks. Doc then kicks him in the gut doubling the Demon over..
Zach Davis: Gambler's Hand! He just knocked the crap out of that Demon, the robe almost flew off!
Shannan Lerch: Ew, good thing he didn't.
Zach Davis: Lookout from behind though! Vengeance was creeping behind Doc Henry and just BLASTED him in the back with a metal chair! Another shot to the head! And another! Doc is down on the ground... His minions were just a distraction so he could get the upper hand on Henry!
The three demons holding Mary push her to the ground and fade past the entrance into the backstage. Vengeance unfolds the chair and places it in a sitting position, then grabs Doc from behind, bringing him up to his knees as Vengeance sits on the chair and locks him in a chokehold. Mary gets to her feet and comes rushing down the ramp towards her man, who is flailing with his arms and starting to turn blue.
Zach Davis: Vengeance just let go of the hold as he saw Mary coming! He stands up and looks at her, grabbing Doc and trying to check on him.
Shannan Lerch: Dumb idea, she needs to RUN. Vengeance has his eyes locked on her now!
Zach Davis: Doc is saying something to Mary..
Shannan Lerch: Uh, yeah, he's telling her to get the heck OUT of there!
Zach Davis: It looks like she is listening, Mary begins to head back up the ramp as Doc Henry prepares to take control of this match.
Doc begins to stomp on the chest of Vengeance a few times for good measure, then he picks up the chair and wallops the big guy with it.
Shannan Lerch: It looks like all that did was just piss Vengeance off..
Vengeance gets up to one knee from the shot, and Doc proceeds to welcome him with another chair shot to the crown of his head.
Zach Davis: No-sell! Vengeance just showed no pain from that direct hit, he is getting up!
Vengeance gets up to both feet and Doc attempts to land another chair shot, but Vengeance catches the sides of the chair with both hands. So Doc improvises and nails a spinning heel kick that crushes the chair into the face of Vengeance and sends him reeling back into the guardrails to keep his balance.
Zach Davis: And Doc begins to work the body with hooks and jabs.
After several blows, Doc backs up a few steps and then launches forward with a powerful lariat sending Vengeance tumbling backwards over the rail and into the crowd. Doc then resets the chair up in front of the rail and begins to get a running start at it. He hops onto the top of the chair and then lands a picture perfect spear over the guardrails and into the just recovering Vengeance.
Shannan Lerch: Wow! Confederate Rocket into the crowd!
Zach Davis: Looks like you're warming up to Doc in this match.
Shannan Lerch: Hell no, but he is putting on a good showing so long as he stays the hell away from my stuff!
Both men are winded from the impact, which sent them crashing into the kneecaps of a crowd of fans standing in cheers. Doc is first to his feet however, and grabs Vengeance by his hair to force him up to his feet. Doc then begins dragging his face across the metal railing down the entrance way towards the ring, burning the man's skin as it's pressed across the steel. Vengeance stretches his hand out to grab the vertical railing hard enough to stop this, and then reaches his foot up with a kick to the chest, pushing Doc backwards. Doc begins to charge after regaining his balance but is instead met with a big boot. Vengeance then picks him up and gives him a double under hook, then lifts him up onto his shoulders for a power bomb..
Zach Davis: This is weird, Vengeance is running back down the entryway and carrying Doc Henry...
Shannan Lerch: LAST RIGHTS!!! He just sent Doc OVER the guardrails and THROUGH that set up chair!!! Vengeance completely mutilated that chair and in the process, Doc Henry's body.
Crowd: VENGEANCE! VENGEANCE! VENGEANCE!
Zach Davis: Amazing!!! He looks a little exhausted though, as he falls to his knees.. Running twenty feet while carrying 200+ lbs. can really take the wind out of your sails. He needs to get over the guardrail and make the pin.
Vengeance slowly pulls himself back to his feet, and crawls over the railing, falling back to the ground. After a long pause of huffing and puffing, he manages to inch his way closer to Doc and then reach out and finally lay an arm on top of him.
Ref: ONE! TWO! THR-
Zach Davis: Kickout!
Shannan Lerch: Wow, so I guess that means he's not dead. Hmph.
Vengeance slams his palm onto the concrete in frustration, and then gets back up to his feet and begins to drag Doc towards ringside by his leg.
Shannan Lerch: With that chair mutilated, Vengeance is going to need to find some new toys to play with in this match.
Vengeance gets by ringside and tosses Doc Henry under the ropes into the ring. He then lifts up the apron and reveals a bevy of hardcore items he had his minions stuff under there before the match. He pulls out a metal trashcan and throws it over the top rope into the ring, as the lid busts off upon impact plenty of goodies are revealed; barbed wire, a wooden baseball bat, brass knuckles, fluorescent light bulbs, and a staple gun. He then begins to slide back into the ring, but as he raises to his feet and lifts his head, he sees that Doc Henry is back on his feet and wielding the baseball bat.
Zach Davis: That doesn't look like what Vengeance was planning...
Vengeance scrambles and grabs the first thing he can, the trash can lid, and begins holding it like a shield as the two opponents circle each other. Doc has a smile of madness as he closes in on the man and swings his bat wildly..
Zach Davis: Blocked! Blocked again! And now Vengeance uses the lid to block a bat shot to the head!
Shannan Lerch: Go for the knees!
Doc Henry does just that, and as Vengeance is busy blocking up top, knocks him off his feet with a solid bat shot to the shin.
Shannan Lerch: Whoops..
Zach Davis: Henry now on the advantage, as Vengeance drops the lid to grab his knees and Doc delivers a shot with the butt of the bat to his forehead. Vengeance is down for the pin...
Shannan Lerch: Yes! Come on Vengeance, get up and rip his head off!!
Zach Davis: I thought you were over your hate of Doc?
Shannan Lerch: I just got texted back on my insurance claim, a $500 deductible for my hood! Bastard!
Zach Davis: Well Doc has control now, and he is hooking Vengeance into the turnbuckles, and tying his arms around the ropes with barbed wire!
Doc grabs the brass knuckles and climbs to the mid turnbuckle, grabs onto Vengeance's hair, and begins to wail away.
Crowd: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FIVE! SIX! SEVEN! EIGHT! NINE! TEN!!
Zach Davis: Oooh, he cracked Vengeance open, those knuckles are covered in blood..
Doc drops the knuckles and shows off his muscles to the crowd's roar. Vengeance sees the blood dripping down his eyes and begins to snap, pulling on the ropes. Doc slides out of the ring and begins to search under the apron for something.
Zach Davis: What could he be looking for? Are there not enough weapons in the ring?
Shannan Lerch: Hopefully he finds a six shooter and takes a bullet to the head!
Zach Davis: Jesus.. don't you think that's a bit much?
Shannan Lerch: Maybe, but five hundred dollars for a hood?? He gets what he deserves!
Instead of a six shooter, Doc finds a fifth of Jim Beam about halfway gone.
Zach Davis: He has a liquor stash down there!
Doc slides into the ring with the bottle and stands over the almost passed out Vengeance. He takes a huge swill of the bourbon, then takes a second chug filling up his cheeks and spits it out all over Vengeance's bloodied face.
Zach Davis: Ooh! That has to burn! Vengeance is still tied down to the ropes and he's struggling to pull out of it, but the wires are just cutting deeper into his wrists.
Shannan Lerch: Now Doc rams hm into the turnbuckle with a diving shoulder block! Vengeance just looks completely trapped.. Henry is just laughing at him, pointing, laughing and taking a hard swig of his bourbon.
Henry brings the bottle back over to Vengeance and pours a little more on top of the gashed wound on his forehead, leading Vengeance to scramble and writhe in pain. Doc puts the cap back on the bottle and smacks it over the top of his head.
Which drops Vengeance's head down, so Doc turns around and raises up his arms to the fans again. Meanwhile, one of the Sixx Demons of Hell dressed in a black robe has snuck out of the crowd with a pair of bolt cutters.
Zach Davis: Vengeance is about to be let loose, and Doc is not paying any attention!!
Shannan Lerch: Look though, they are having problems with the bolt cutters.. Vengeance has squirmed too much and the barbed wire is deep into his skin, too deep to cut it out!
Doc turns around and sees the robed figure, so he begins to drop his bottle and go for a strike. Simultaneously, the Demon panics and snips the top rope, loosening Vengeance's hand enough for him to grab Doc by the throat. Doc's eyes grow as big as baseballs while the robed figure snips the other side of the top rope and thus frees Vengeance from the turnbuckles.
Shannan Lerch: He is loose! The top rope has fallen from the ring and Vengeance has a piece of it lodged into each of his arms, wrapped in barbed wire, and he has Doc by the throat!
Zach Davis: Chokeslam! Vengeance goes for the pin.
Zach Davis: Vengeance seems a little slow to get up from the blood loss, I bet he is very woozy.
Doc tries to turn and crawl towards a weapon, but Vengeance reaches his arm out and sticks it to the right shoulder of Henry with the barbs, then begins striking jabs to the gut with his covered hands, making cuts and scratches into Doc's abs. He then grabs Doc and tries to Irish whip him into the ropes..
Shannan Lerch: No top rope over there! Doc tumbles out of the ring and falls hard!
Zach Davis: Vengeance is following him out, sliding under the ropes and throwing Doc headfirst into the ringpost!
Vengeance stays hot on Doc's heels, and climbs up the steps to the apron with Doc in a headlock. He then grabs Henry around the waist..
Shannan Lerch: Side walk slam!! Onto the apron!
Zach Davis: Vengeance has gotta be killing himself with that barbed wire just cutting deeper into his wrists over this time.. You wonder how much longer he can hold up.
Shannan Lerch: Well it looks like he is going to try and finish this sooner rather than later..
Vengeance sets the trashcan up in the middle of the ring, and then grabs Doc from the floor and sets him up on the apron again. He puts Doc in a face-to-face waist lock and sends him face first into the trashcan with a release Belly-to-Belly suplex over the two remaining ropes.
Crowd: HARD-CORE! HARD-CORE! HARD-CORE!
Zach Davis: Doc just crumpled that trashcan with his face! Vengeance goes for the pin..
Zach Davis: Somehow, someway, Doc manages to eek his shoulder up just in time!
Vengeance gathers frustration from not getting the pin, and lifts Doc up and tries an Irish whip into the turnbuckles. Doc crashes hard into them and Vengeance comes running to follow, but Doc lifts up a big boot intended for Vengeance's face.
Zach Davis: Big Boot, no, counter!
Shannan Lerch: Vengeance ducked the big boot and caught Doc's leg on his shoulder, and nails a Fisherman suplex!
Zach Davis: Now he keeps Doc locked up, going for the Death Lock! He has the move LOCKED IN!
Shannan Lerch: Ew, the barbed wire just busted a hole on the back of Doc's neck where he is applying pressure, and it's spewing from all the blood trying to squeeze out!!!
Zach Davis: Doc Henry is refusing to tap, but he is draining blood fast, he looks pale!
Shannan Lerch: He IS pale.. He looks knocked OUT.
The referee begins to lift Doc's hand up since he is getting no response.
The hand drops a third time and the ref jumps in to break up the hold, raising Vengeance's hand. Kyle Steel slips back into the ring with a mic and the Hardcore title.
Kyle Steel: Your winner, and NEW WCF HARDCORE CHAMPION, THE VIOLENT NIGHTMARE... VEEEEEEENGEEAAAAAANCE!!!!
Shannan Lerch: Yes! What a bloody mess, good to see Doc get his just dues for all the damage he caused me.
Zach Davis: A bloody mess indeed, they are gonna need some Shannan Lerch-sized tampons to clean this thing up!
Shannan Lerch: WHAT???!?!
Zach Davis: I said, the clean up crew is going to need to come and reinstall a top rope before our next match, so lets see what's going on backstage for now!
Doc Henry is about to walk out of the ring when "BTJ Villain" pops up on the WCFtron and the lights begin to flicker. Doc gets ready for the attack by stepping back into the middle of the ring.
Voice: We don't die we multiply!
"Sink Em" by Clutch starts playing as The Order step out into the entranceway. Doc is telling them to bring it on when he is cracked over the head with a Kendo Stick by Adam Young. Doc is knocked out by the shear force of the blow and Adam rolls him over and kneels down beside him with a mic in hand.
Adam Young: You will do what they told ya, you will fight me.
Adam grabs the hardcore championship and stands up laughing. He holds it high in the air with the Kendo stick and spits in Doc's face.
Adam Young: The era of the Villain has begun. I will take what I want from who I want when I want and there aint a damn thing you can do Doc. Long live Adam Young!
"The Villain" Adam Young appears in red on the WCFtron as "Sex Type Thing" by Stone Temple Pilots starts playing and Adam leaves with the Order with the WCF Hardcore Championship. The WCFtron then reads Adam Young vs Doc Henry vs Corey Black in a Triple Threat Last Man Standing match.
Zach Davis: And here comes the PEOPLES TITLE MATCH
Shannan Lerch: STJ vs Oretga
''Sympathy for the Devil'' by the Rolling Stones fills the arena as the boos follow. Davey Ortega emerges from the back with a smile on his face. he slowly walks down the ramp, slowly raising his arms up as more boos come, which fuels his smile. He uses the stairs to get on the apron, casually getting into the ring.
Zach Davis: Ortega is a real piece of work, Shannan. Hopefully STJ will shut him up.
Shannan Lerch: Hopefully he can finally shut up the ‘Peoples Pastor.’
Zach Davis: Speaking of…
The Arena Goes Dark, and then all simultaneously “Barton Hollow” By The Civil Wars begins to play through the audio systems. The Entrance Gate area and Stage begin to flicker with White lights and neon blue flashes mixed in the flickers. Fog fills the gate area as Steeltoe Joe comes walking out of the midst of the Fog. Joe Stands on stage and plays to the crowds who are cheering for him. Joe then walks down the ramp and gets to the ring steps where he stops, does a Catholic Crucifix motion and then walks up the steps and into the ring. He climbs up two turnbuckles and does the same crucifix motion and raises his arms and points towards Heaven
Zach Davis: The people are going crazy, hence why he should stay the ‘PEOPLES’ Champion.
Shannan Lerch: Well, I will admit he has had an impressive run, but I think the people are ready for a change.
Ortega wastes no time, as STJ is still getting ready for the match, he comes at him with a strong forearm to the back of STJ’s neck, knocking him a bit off kilter. The bell rings as Ortega continues his his assault, with left and rights as STJ has turned around. Ortega has him up against the ropes. The referee breaks it up, and Ortega hits the ropes, but STJ see’s whats happening and flips Ortega over his head, using his own momentum against him. However, Ortega lands on the apron, and now grabs STJ, choking him on the ropes. After a quick two count from the ref, Ortega tries to pick up STJ, trying to suplex him over the ropes and out of the ring. STJ catches his foot on the rope though, stopping the lift. AND STJ hits a suplex of his own, bring Ortega back in the ring. STJ gets up and leans up against the ropes for a moment.
Shannan Lerch: STJ is old, look at him. He executes one move and he has to take a breather.
Zach Davis: He was just assaulted, so yeah he is taking time to recompose himself.
Ortega gets up as STJ hits the ropes. Joe goes for a clothesline, but Davey ducks it. STJ comes back as Davey jumps over him, and this time, as STJ comes at him, Ortega jumps in the air, executing a beautiful standing dropkick, which floors STJ. Ortega, thinking fast, picks up STJ and hits a quick neckbreaker. And another. And another. He stands, smiling at the tidal wave of boo’s he has coming at him. He picks up and puts STJ into the corner. With left and rights to the body, he beings to wear STJ down, and for a moment, this seems like its going to be a short fight. Joe begins battling back though, with rights and lefts of his own, and just when it seems he is about to take some control, Ortega hits the ropes and hits the ‘peoples pastor’ with a devastating running neckbreaker. Joe goes down, hard. Quickly, he heads for the top rope, flying off hitting STJ with a HUGE top rope leg drop. He makes a cover.
Zach Davis: We may have a new champion!
Shannan Lerch: STJ gets a shoulder up, I have no idea how.
Ortega thought he had that one in the bag, as he slams his hand down on the mat before getting up. He has some choice words with the ref, which is always a bad move, because STJ is slowly getting to his feet. Ortega, however, notices, and hits the ropes, he runs at STJ, looking for The Setting Sun…BUT STJ DUCKS AND PULLS THE ROPE DOWN, ORTEGA FLIES OUT OF THE RING, SPEARING THE BARRICADE. Knowing he needs to make the most of this opportunity, STJ rolls out of the ring, and begins stomping Ortega on the outside.
STJ picks Ortega up, leaning him up against the barricade, chop after chop to the chest of Davey. Turning him around, he slams Ortega’s head into the barricade. Davey recoils, but STJ does it again, harder, and Ortega recoils once more. STJ uses his strength to pick Ortega up, over his head, and drops Ortega face first on the barricade. The crowd lets out a loud pop.
STJ picks Ortega up, and powerwhips him toward the steel steps, but Ortega jumps and gives STJ his own whip, sending Joe straight into the steps. The Champion goes flipping over them, sending the top step off kilter. Davey walks over to where Joe lay, picking him up, hitting a quick snap suplex to Joe, his back coming down onto the steps. Joe screams out in pain.
With a couple of shots to the head, Ortega picks STJ up, slamming him into the turnbuckle. Not once. Not twice, but THREE TIMES. STJ seems dazed, like he doesn’t know where he is. Ortega sets STJ up for another snap suplex on the steps, but he seems to be having trouble getting STJ up. That’s because STJ is powering through the pain. He reverses, picking Davey up, and slamming him face first onto the steel steps. Joe falls to the ground himself, one arm up on the apron.
STJ, using the ropes, pulls himself up onto his feet.
He rolls in the ring. Followed closely by Ortega, who seems to be cut open. A little blood running down his forehead from his impact with the stairs. He seems to be a bit dazed and confused still, and STJ takes advantage, running at Ortega, who manages to rake Joe’s eyes, sending him back. Ortega, is up on the ropes, quick….21! Joe goes down.
Zach Davis: CAN ORTEGA MAKE THE PIN?!?
Shannan Lerch: It looks like he can, Zach.
Zach Davis; JOE KICKS OUT!!
Ortega is pissed off at this point. He can't seem to keep Joe down. He sits in the corner, waiting for Joe to get up. The crowd is behind their Peoples Champion, though, and are shouting for Joe. Bringing himself up, he turns, Ortega runs, going for a Setting Sun......BUT JOE REVERSERSES IT!!! Out of desperation, he hits The Baptism.
Zach Davis: BOTH MEN ARE DOWN!
Shannan Lerch: The ref starts the count.
Both men are down, no movement.
They begin to stir, still down.
Ortega has rolled over...Joe is still on his back.
Ortega has a hand on the ropes....Joe is still down.
Ortega begins to pull himself up.
Ortega is on his knees....Joe still on his back.
Ortega ends the count as he gets to his feet. Seeing that STJ is still down, Ortega gets up on the top rope. He is looking to end this with a big move from the top. He jumps off, looking to land the Rated Five Stars!
Zach Davis: STJ ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY!
Shannan Lerch: Ortega hits nothing but mat. He is quickly on his feet though.
So is STJ, though, waiting for Ortega. Ortega spins.....THE BAPTISM!!!!
Shannan Lerch: THE BAPTISM!!!
Zach Davis: ITS OVER!!!
STJ drops for the pin.
Zach Davis: THE PEOPLES PASTOR IS STILL THE PEOPLES CHAMPION!!!
Shannan Lerch: Shoot.
STJ throws his arms up in the ring, as the ref hands him the belt. His music, drowned out by the crowd cheering Steeltoe Joe's name.
Ana walks down the ramp to pink pyro’s shooting off behind her. She pauses at the steps to the ring to blow kisses to the crowd. She then steps into the ring bending low to slip between the middle and bottom rope.Ana walks down the ramp to pink pyro’s shooting off behind her. She pauses at the steps to the ring to blow kisses to the crowd. She then steps into the ring bending low to slip between the middle and bottom rope.
“Capricco” by Krzysztof Penderecki hits the sound system with a loud hit of drums followed by a sharp harmony of horns and strings. Benjamin Atreyu casually steps out onto the entrance ramp, savoring the scowls of the audience. After breathing in their discontent he descends the ramp to the ring.
Kyle Steel: Hailing from Saint Paul, Minnesota and weighing in at two hundred and thirty one pounds, self-proclaimed "God Given Greatness" Benjamin Atreyu!
He slides into the ring and jumps to his feet. He walks to the center of the ring, raising his fist in the air, as if announcing his victory was assured before the match even began. The crowd erupts in boos he steps back into his corner.
Zach Davis: One of these two competitors will be moving on to the Trilogy Cup Finals next month at Aftermath. Who is it going to be!?
A fan yells "I love you Ana!," and as Ana turns around to acknowledge him, Atreyu runs at her and starts hitting her with shots to her head. The crowd boos as Ana gets her arms up to block, but Atreyu already got too many good shots in and gets the advantage. He throws her to the ropes and then hits her with a Big Boot as she comes back.
Shannan Lerch: I have a question. Why does Atreyu think he is a Good Guy Greg?
Zach Davis: I think his "GGG" stands for "God Given Greatness," Shanan.
Shannan Lerch: OOOHH YYEEAHHH.
Atreyu drops and puts Ana in a Chinlock. The fans quickly get behind her, clapping for her to get up. She's not too worn down yet and after several moments she begins fighting to her feet, and once she's to a vertical base she begins elbowing Atreyu in the stomach. She breaks free and as Atreyu spins to face her she hits him with a Dropkick, sending him stumbling backwards and out of the ring. Ana gets ready as Atreyu gets to his feet, the crowd gets on theirs too.... Ana flies between the ropes with a Suicide Dive!
Zach Davis: DAMN! Suicide Dive from Ana Valentine!
Shannan Lerch: This is one of the biggest matches of her career and she's going all out!
Ana gets back to her feet and the crowd cheers her yet again. She doesn't waste any time as she picks Atreyu up and rolls him into the ring, sliding in with him and covering him.
No! Atreyu kicks out.
Zach Davis: It is indeed going to take everything Ana has to pin this man. Atreyu is one of the top competitors in this company.
Ana begins climbing to the top rope now.
Shannan Lerch: Ana is going high risk once more!
She reaches the top as Atreyu gets to his feet. Atreyu turns around-
Zach Davis: Flying Clothesline!
But no!, Atreyu sidesteps her! She rolls through, gets back to her feet, and is met with a stiff kick to the gut from Atreyu followed by a Snap Suplex.
Shannan Lerch: Aw. Looks like Atreyu is back in control.
Valentine stumbles back to her feet but Atreyu catches her with an STO Backbreaker! She hits the mat hard and Atreyu quickly pins her.
No!, Ana kicks out now.
Zach Davis: Not quite yet!
Atreyu quickly grabs Ana's legs and wraps her into a Figure Four Leglock.
Shannan Lerch: How do guys wrestle women like this without getting boners all the time?
Zach Davis: When you're in the ring you're not thinking about sex, Shannan. Well, not most of them, anyway.
Ana Valentine yells out in pain as Atreyu maximizes the pressure put onto her. An "AN-A VALENTINE!" chant rings throughout the arena, and once again, the fans begin clapping, urging Ana on. She feeds on their energy and slowly but surely begins rolling over, much to Atreyu's chagrin.
Shannan Lerch: Although the Figure Four is one of the most effective submissions in wrestling, turning it over is actually one of the biggest weakpoints in submissions as well. And it is a weakpoint that Ana is about to capitalize on.
After several moments Ana is able to roll over, reversing the pressure of the move onto Atreyu instead! The fans cheer as Atreyu screams out in pain now before escaping the hold. He gets to his feet, as does Ana, though she's slow to get up, limping a bit and favoring her right leg.
Zach Davis: Uh oh. Ana didn't tap out but the damage may be done.
Atreyu notices the limp and grins to himself. He runs past Ana, hits the ropes, then Chop Blocks her from behind. She goes down, and he quickly grabs her leg again and drops an elbow onto it.
Shannan Lerch: Uh oh. Benjamin Atreyu smells blood.
Atreyu pulls Ana into the center of the ring and grabs her leg again, going for another Figure Four.
Zach Davis: If he gets this locked in again that could be it!
Ana is able to kick him away, however, and he stumbles back into the ropes, then bounces forward. As he does Ana grabs his right leg, trips him down, then locks in an Ankle Lock!
Shannan Lerch: ANKLE LOCK! ANA HAS IT APPLIED PERFECTLY!
Zach Davis: Ana has the submission move applied now, my how the tides have turned!
Atreyu yells in pain as Ana has the move locked in perfect, and the fans begin to chant "TAP! TAP! TAP!" Atreyu shakes his head vigorously, refusing to give up, crawling towards the ropes.
Shannan Lerch: Can he make it?
Indeed, Atreyu makes it! The fans boo as the ref forces Ana to release the hold. She does so, then approaches Atreyu... and he surprises her by rolling her up in a pin!
ATREYU'S FEET ARE ON THE ROPES!
NO! Ana kicks out!
Zach Davis: SO CLOSE! Atreyu almost stole it!
Both Valentine and Atreyu quickly get to their feet. They brawl with another momentarily before Atreyu throws a wild Clothesline, which Ana ducks. She then throws him to the ropes, and as he's coming back...
Shannan Lerch: CUPID'S BOW! SHE HITS IT!
Zach Davis: SHE PLANTS ATREYU TO THE MAT!, but wait... she's down too now, she's not moving. What the hell happened?
Indeed, both Ana Valentine and Benjamin Atreyu are laying motionless on the mat.
Shannan Lerch: Can we get an instant replay?
A slow motion replay comes onto the screen of Ana hitting the Spinebuster. And as she did, it looks like Atreyu was able to swing his body just right so that his elbow connected brutally with Ana's face.
Zach Davis: He hit his Black Eye Sonata mid-move! Holy crap!
The referee is currently counting, waiting for both participants to get up. Four, five....
Shannan Lerch: However, in hitting that move, he couldn't protect himself AT ALL from the Spinebuster. He took ALL of that move.
Zach Davis: Yes, as did Ana, as she wasn't suspecting that elbow at all. She's gotta be knocked out cold.
Shannan Lerch: This match is anyone's for the taking! All they need to do is stand up!
Zach Davis: What!? What now!?
Shannan Lerch: It's... it's a tie!
Kyle Steel: The referee's decision is that as a result of a double knockout, this match is a DRAW!
The fans begin to boo.
Kyle Steel: However, per the stipulations of the Trilogy Cup Tournament, this now means that BOTH Benjamin Atreyu and Ana Valentine will be moving on to face the winner of tonight's Television Title match!
Well, the fans still would've liked to see a real winner here, but they cheer regardless.
Zach Davis: Very interesting! The Trilogy Cup Tournament finals just because a Triple Threat! Makes sense, I guess. Three.
Shannan Lerch: Unless somehow Striker vs Kane ends in a draw too, for all we know we'll get a four way!
Zach Davis: You'd like that, wouldn't you, Shannan?
Shannan Lerch: Shut up.
Medics arrive on scene to check on Atreyu and Valentine.
Zach Davis: And now we have the other spot in the Trilogy Cup finals at stake as well as the Television Title. Hall of Famer and former World Champion Skyler Striker taking on the second generation budding superstar and TV Champion Christopher Kane.
Shannan Lerch: A lot on the line tonight for both men but Striker has been in positions like this before. This is all new to the young Kane. How will he be able to respond?
Lucious Jackson: I think he should do alright. The kid is confident and why shouldn't he be?
Zach Davis: Great point by Lucious? What is this? That is true. Chris is verbal about his confidence while Skyler is quiet about his. I cannot wait for this one.
“With our hands held high we're screaming..."
The crowd scream 'whoa-oh whoa-oh oh' and in doing so introduce Skyler Striker. Striker makes his way to the ring in his usual fashion, focused and determined. Once inside, he stands in the center of the ring and bows his head, his arms outstretched and fists clenched. He then opens his palms to the audience, causing white pyro to explode from the ring posts. Striker throws his effects out of the ring and prepares for the match.
Shannan Lerch: There is the former World Champion. I think he'd love to get back to that point again and winning tonight gets him a step closer to that goal.
Zach Davis: That great match he had with Davey Ortega got him here to this point.
The beginning of "The Air That I Breathe" by All That Remains begins to play as people rise to their feet. A few moments pass by as out steps "The Youngest Hero" Christopher Kane. He motions for people to get to their feet if they're not already. Christopher begins to walk to the ring, slapping hands with the many fans who have their hands out over the guard rails. The WCF fans are cheering loudly for Christopher Kane as he hops up onto the ring apron before going to the turnbuckle and heading up to the top buckle. He raises his arms into the air for more noise before jumping into the ring, making a roll and popping back up to his feet. "The Youngest Hero" backs off into a corner and waits for the match to begin.
Lucious Jackson: The youngest champion in WCF history, EVER!
Shannan Lerch: That he is and he's already been a duel champion. Won a very impressive match last month to get to this point.
The two stand in the middle of the ring as the bell the rings. Skyler and Chris lock up in the middle of the ring with the collar and elbow. Striker uses his muscle to push Chris into a corner where he breaks the lock up right away. The crowd is silent as he backs away. The two meet up again the middle of the ring and the same thing ensues. This time Chris slaps Skyler right in the face as the crowd can't believe the lack of respect that the teenager is showing to the hall of famer. Skyler looks a little shocked as Chris elbows him right in the face this time and keeps on the attack with a second elbow to the face.
Zach Davis: Wow. This is just, wow.
Shannan Lerch: No respect at all shown from the TV Champion.
Lucious Jackson: I personally like the bravado of the young man.
Chris fires off a hard kick to the chest as Striker as Striker takes a couple of steps back. Kane hits another as he feels fired up and grabs Striker trying to suplex him but Skyler is able reverse and lift the TV champion into the air before throwing him forward. Chris lands on his feet but Skyler knocks him down with a clothesline. Chris pops back up to his feet as Striker unleahes a hard chop to his chest. The crowd gasps for air as Skyler does it a second time that forces Chris to go into the corner. Skyler follows up with a running chop in the corner as the crowd claps.
Shannan Lerch: Skyler wasn't too happy with the comments that Chris made this week. I suppose he's showing that right now.
Lucious Jackson: Oh no doubt about it.
Zach Davis: But its all about how the TV Champion responds right now.
Skyler pulls Chris towards him and lifts him into the air for another suplex but Chris drops down behind the hall of famer. He grabs Skyler by the waist and rolls him up.
Skyler is able to kick out as Chris smirks. Striker heads back up to his feet as Chris rolls onto the apron and springboards in with a dropkick that takes Skyler off of his feet. The crowd cheers for Chris as he takes a moment to soak in taking Skyler down like that. This proves to be a mistake as Skyler grabs Chris by the legs and trips him down.
Lucious Jackson: Interesting move by Skyler there to take down Chris so easily.
Zach Davis: Anything to get the flyer off of his feet, I reckon.
However, Skyler is already pulling up Chris right after the TV Champion's face had hit the mat. He puhes him back into a corner again before taking a few steps back sprints in with a huge running chop to the chest. Chris drops down to the mat before rolling out of the ring as Skyler looks extremely pleased with himself right now. Chris hops back up onto the ring apron still holding his chest saying he didn't expect Skyler to hit this hard. Skyler allows Chris back into the ring as the two glare at one another.
Shannan Lerch: Emotions are running high in this one.
Lucious Jackson: I expect this to be a back and forth match until one of these crackas does something insane.
Zach Davis: You are a terrible person and should feel awful about yourself.
Chris takes his time approaching Skyler as the two circle around the other looking for another strike. Skyler makes the first move with kick to the ribs. Chris takes the damage before eating a second. Skyler goes for a third as Chris catches the left leg of the former World Champion. He spins Striker around in a circle before hitting a spin kick to the stomach. Skyler doubles over as Chris quickly moves in to lock a cravate. Knees to the face while the hold is applied as Skyler tries to get himself over to the ropes in order to stop the knees.
Lucious Jackson: What is it with the Kane family and knee strikes like that?
Zach Davis: Because it is rather effective?
Shannan Lerch: That pretty much. Still Skyler is a pro and will get out of this soon.
Indeed Skyler is super close as he reaches out and latches onto the middle one as Chris releases the hold right away. Skyler glares at Chris checking his nose to ensure its alright. Chris motions for Skyler to come at his already. Chris ducks under a clothesline before popping back up to his feet only to eat a huge dropkick to the face. The crowd claps Skyler's counter as he pulls up the TV champion and elbows his jaw. A second follows before a whip into the ropes. Chris bounces back at Skyler as the former World Champion hits a spinkick to the face of Chris. More applause from the crowd
Zach Davis: Ouch at that spin kick.
Shannan Lerch: That did look very, very brutal.
Lucious Jackson: A possible knock out shot!
Skyler drops down for a cover hooking a leg
Chris is able to pop his shoulder off of the mat. Skyler pulls up his foe right away, body slamming him right back down to the mat. Skyler looks confident as he runs off of the ropes and jumps into the air for a leg drop that misses! Chris rolled out of the way while he drags himself back up with the ring ropes. Skyler gets to a knee as Chris hits a kick to the Striker's temple. Skyler falls to the mat as Chris is quick to get his back up to his feet. A kick to the chest now as Chris spikes Skyler his head with a DDT.
Shannan Lerch: My goodness if either man sustained the advantage this might be more clear cut. As for now, this is fun.
Lucious Jackson: I don't know if people can actually hear how hard these two fools are hitting one another.
Zach Davis: Some children are cringing in the crowd.
Chris stands in the corner waiting for Skyler to get up. Skyler gets back up to his feet as Chris sprints towards Skyler full bore as he doesn't connect with a leg lariat. Skyler ducks out of the way as he pulls Chris right back and makes full use of his Ad Infinitum. Chris is getting the life choked out of him as he slowly makes his way to the ropes as Skyler is telling him to just give up already! Chris is fading and only has one shot to reach the ropes and he... does!
Lucious Jackson: I thought that was it y'all.
Zach Davis: It was super close. I thought he was fading away.
Shannan Lerch: Skyler has gotten closer then Chris has in this one, I think, to pull it out.
Skyler releases the hold before standing up and pulling Chris to his feet. He gets surprised when the TV Champion kicks him in the ribs before hitting a snap suplex! Chris takes a moment to recover from the hold he was just in before looking at the top turnbuckle. He makes the climb up to the top and inhales. He steadies himself for the Youngest Sault but Skyler has enough presence of mind to kick the ropes as Chris lands down horribly.
Zach Davis: Ouch!
Lucious Jackson: I can't feel too bad. Lil' dude gots a ho to rub them down.
Shannan Lerch: Did we really just hear that?
With Chris on the top rope, Skyler gets to his feet as he throws Chris off! Skyler goes to the top himself now as he waits for Chris to stand. Skyler leaps off the top and connects with leaping hurricanrana! Chris slides out of the ring as Skyler doesn't wait, flying out with an elbow suicida! Chris falls to the floor as Skyler gets back up to his feet and yells loudly as a war cry wanting to advance to get his title back.
Shannan Lerch: Striker is all sorts of fired up right now!
Zach Davis: Oh that he is. He knows what is at stake.
Lucious Jackson: Indeed.
Skyler lifts Chris up as he tries to bang Chris's head against the ring apron but Chris is able to apply the brakes and reverses as he bangs Skyler's head against the apron now instead! Chris rolls into the ring to break the count as Skyler is wandering holding his head. Chris smirks as he runs, leaps over the ropes and dropkicks Skyler! Both men are wiped out on the floor yet again as the crowd is rising to their feet clapping for both Chris and Skyler
Lucious Jackson: DAT HOLY SHIT!
Shannan Lerch: That is just... I don't know how he does it.
Zach Davis: Still all the flash in the world doesn't win the match. Striker just looks more calm.
Both men are slow to their feet as both get into the ring. Chris uses the ropes to get up again as does Skyler. They stagger into one anothis as Skyler chops the chest of Chris. Chris fires back with a kick to the chest. Chop by Skyler, kick to the chest by Chris. Chop, kick, chop, kick, chop, kick. Each of their strike hits harder then the last as Chris's chest is bleeding now while Skyler's chest is becoming red from the kicks. They keep exchanging them as the crowd gets on their feet as the two men are just pasting one another.
Zach Davis: The will to win is just insane sometimes.
Shannan Lerch: Today it certainly is. Both men are just, this is nuts.
Lucious Jackson: And this ain't even the finals. TV Title on the line!
Skyler's ending: Striker suddenly ducks down and sweeps the legs out from under Chris as he kips back up to his feet. Chris struggles to get up as in one swift motion, Skyler his the Starfall!
The bell rings as the crowd jumps up to their feet as the TV Title in handed into Skyler Striker. He takes the title and smiles before raising it high into the air and feels proud about moving on.
Shannan Lerch: Skyler is going to the finals!
Lucious Jackson: Indeed y'all!
Zach Davis: One step closer to getting back to the top.
Skyler goes to the top rope and raises the TV Title high into the air with a grin before hopping down and heading to the back.
Technicians begin setting up the cage walls on either side of the ring. The crowd goes silent.
Zach Davis: The crowd is dumbstruck with anticipation. No doubt many of them remembering the last hardcore hell match over six months ago between Waylon Cash and Gein Spector that ended in a victory for Cash. How do you see this match going?
Shannan Lerch: I have no idea. This one has been hotly anticipated, and for good reason. NvL and Waylon Cash are ready to literally kill each other. It all starts when NvL puts FPV in a coma. Waylon sought revenge for that, and saw his fiance kidnapped, and his house burned to the ground because of it.
Zach Davis: No matter the outcome, this match should be one the WCF fans remember for a long time.
The cage is erect now, and the cell slowly lowers over it, as techs climb into the ring with the nine different weapons. Once the cell this the floor, they begin hanging the weapons from the ceiling.
Shannan Lerch: I understand we have some changes to the nine weapons lining the cage.
Zach Davis: Right, the nine weapons are agreed upon by each contestant prior to the match starting. This time they include a stretch of logger's chain, a kendo stick, a crowbar, a steel chair, a bag of thumbtacks, a small bundle of loose razor wire, a sledgehammer, brass knuckles, and a staple gun.
Shannan Lerch: I'm not even sure I want to see what they plan on doing with some of those.
The weapons are affixed to the ceiling, and the technicians climb out, as the camera pans to the titantron, where an oak door comes into view. A thump is heard, and the door shakes on its hinges. Several more thumps occur, until the blade of an ax busts through the door. Smoke begins to from on the stage, as a dark figure steps out. Suddenly a woman voice yells out from the speaker.
"No, go away!
Leave me alone!"
Smoke billows down the aisle as the man walks down it to the ring, his identity shrouded in the smog. Meanwhile, on the titantron, the ax makes a large hole in the wood, and a hand reaches in for the door knob, the fingernails painted black. Again the frightened voice rings out as the mystery man slides into the ring.
"Don't you come in here!
I don't want you here.!"
The mystery man watches the titantron now, as the door opens, and the same man standing in the ring, steps into the house. A lightning bolt cracks behind him, equal in volume to the string of fireworks that fire up on the ramp. The man on the titantron rubs his thumb on the door, leaving a bloody smear on the polished oak. He lifts the ax with both hands, as the voice pleads.
"No, No, No, NO!!
The scream is cut off as the man swings the ax. Blood appears to splatter across the tron, and then the name "Nathan von Liebert" is written with a finger painted black. Nathan, who is in the ring, falls on his knees, never taking his eyes off the 'tron until it goes black. He then scans the members of the crowd that he could without contorting his torso, as Kyle Steel announces him.
Kyle Steel: This match is a Hardcore Hell match! The only way to win is by pinfall or submission. Introducing first, from the Nightmare Realm. He weighs in at two hundred and twenty-nine pounds, and stands five feet, ten inches tall. Ladies and gentlemen, Nathan von Liebert!!!
The crowd boos loudly, as NvL glares at the entrance ramp, waiting for his opponent.
Kyle Steel: And his opponent...
A cheer erupts from the crowd, as “White Trash Renegade” begins to play over the P.A. System. Waylon comes walking out onto the ramp alone, with hateful business on his mind.
Kyle Steel: From Macon, Georgia. He weighs in at two hundred thirty pounds, and stand six feet, five inches tall. Ladies and gentlemen, The Hellbilly, Waylon Cash!!!
The crowd screams again, but Waylon seems not to notice. His eyes are firmly locked on the hellish structure he will be doing battle in.
Shannan Lerch: I've noticed Waylon's fists are taped heavily for this match.
Zach Davis: From what I understand, during the last match Waylon's hand caught on the barbed wire, and he experienced some minor nerve damage because of it. No doubt he hopes to keep the same thing, or worse from happening tonight.
Waylon shakes the outer wall of the cell, before stepping through the door, and climbing into the cage. The two men stare each other down, as the outside ref closes the door and chains it shut. NvL clenches and loosens his fists as the ref stands between them, reminding them of the rules. Once he is finished, the bell rings, and a flurry of fists ensues. The fans scream for blood, as both men trade punches, struggling to get the upper hand. Eventually NvL gets pushed back against the ropes, and Waylon uses that as an opportunity to whip him across the ring. On the rebound, Cash hits him with a hard back elbow, knocking him to the ground. He wastes no time in diving on top of the man, and leveling several punches at his forehead.
Zach Davis: This match starting off quickly, and both of these men are out for blood.
NvL shoves Waylon back, and jumps to his feet, but Cash spears him backwards, ramming him up against the cage wall. He then whips NvL across the ring. He goes for a clothesline, but Nathan ducks it, bounces off the opposite ropes, and this Waylon with a lariat of his own, sending the Hellbilly to the ground. Nathan stomps on him, backing him up against the cage. Waylon can't find an opening to stand, so he lunges for NvL's legs, tackling him to the mat. He punches him in the head a few times, before standing up, and waiting for him to rise. Once NvL is to his knees, Waylon delivers a few kicks to the chest, and runs to bounces off of the ropes. When he comes back, NvL has gotten to a standing position, and flips Waylon upward, hitting a back body drop, and sending him crashing into the cage wall.
Shannan Lerch: The cage coming into play early, to the surprise of literally no one.
Zach Davis: We're only about a minute in, but I'm amazed all nine weapons are still tied to the ceiling. I fully expect to see these two men take horrific measures to do damage to each other.
Waylon lays in a crumpled heap, as NvL throws his hands up, gloating. He doesn't take long before dragging Waylon to his feet. He rests his opponent on the ropes, and hits him with a couple heavy forearms to the chest. He then tucks the man's head under his arm, and this him with a snap suplex. As Waylon lays in the middle of the ring, NvL climbs the ropes, and reaches up to grab the crowbar. He rips it from the ceiling, and drops down to his feet. Waylon is up when he hits the mat, and Nathan swings for the fences with the steel bar. Cash ducks it, and kicks him in the gut, causing him to drop the weapon. Waylon then this Nathan with a DDT, and smiles over at the crowbar.
Zach Davis: Waylon has an evil look in his eye.
Cash grabs the crowbar, and sits on Nathan's back, before pressing the bar across his throat, and pulling back. NvL gasps for air, as Waylon chokes him viciously.
Shannan Lerch: That bar is unforgiving, Nathan's airway has to be completely cut off here, and it's totally legal!
Nathan reaches back, and grabs Waylon's neck, hitting him with a desperate snapmare. He tries to catch his breath, as both men stand to their feet. Waylon runs at NvL, but he moves out of the way, causing Cash to smash face first into the cage. As he stumbles backwards, Nathan rolls him up for a pin.
Kick out! Both men stand to their feet, but NvL grabs the crowbar at the same time. Waylon attacks again, but catches the steel weapon in the gut, before NvL brings it down onto the middle of his spine. With a howl of pain, Waylon falls to the ground. Nathan laughs, and brings the bar up again, before smashing the back of Cash's knee with it.
Zach Davis: Good lord! Nathan is picking him apart piece by piece with that crowbar.
NvL brings it up again, and swings for Waylon's other leg, but the fallen man rolls out of the way, and swings around to kick NvL in the head once he misses his swing. NvL stumbles around for long enough for Waylon to stand up, and almost take his head off with a lariat. NvL lays on the mat, as Cash rises, and climbs the ropes to grab the steel chair from the ceiling.
Shannan Lerch: Waylon ready to do some damage with that chair!
Cash smacks it on the ground a few times, waiting for NvL to get up. When he does, Waylon swings for his head, but NvL ducks. Before he can take advantage of the miss, he is hit in the gut with the top edge of the chair. Waylon drops the chair to the ground, and brings NvL's head down onto it with a vicious snap DDT. Cash screams something inaudible in Nathan's face, before throwing his fists up to a loud chorus of cheering. He then spins around, and lifts up the chair, bringing it down onto NvL's back three times, yelling “How do you like that?!” after each shot. When he's done, he tosses the bent chair off to the side, before sitting on Nathan's back. He interlocks his finger's under his opponent's chin, locking him in a modified camel clutch.
Shannan Lerch: Waylon looks like he wants NvL to tap out.
Zach Davis: I've been here for a long time, and I can safely say I don't think that is going to happen. Waylon might be smarter taking a different route here.
Slowly, NvL gets some leverage, and stands with Waylon clinging to his back. Nathan hurls himself backward, sandwiching Cash between his girth, and the cage wall, before turning around, and falling backward, slamming Waylon to the mat. Both men sit on the ground for a few moments, Waylon gasping for air, NvL just trying to regain his bearings. Nathan stands the quickest, and uses his advantage to kick Waylon in the back of the head a few times.
Zach Davis: Now that's not necessary!
Nathan then climbs the ropes again, and rips the kendo stick down from the ceiling. With a sadistic smile, he waits for Waylon to stand, before nailing him in the back of the knee with the bamboo cane, sending him back to the mat. Waylon clutches his knee, but now NvL turns his attention to the man's back, hitting him with three solid shots, that echo through the arena. He then bar the kendo stick across Waylon's throat and begins to choke him while screaming “How do you like it?!” He lets go, and while Cash is finding his breath, he gets hit in the back of the head with the now splintered cane. NvL drops it, and goes for the pin.
… Kick out!
Zach Davis: Waylon wakes up just in time to kick out of that one. Things are not looking good for the Hellbilly.
With a look of disgust, NvL stands up, and stomps on Waylon's ribs a few times. He then ascends the ropes one more time, this time to pull down the tightly wound bundle of razor wire.
Zach Davis: And what the hell does he plan on doing with that?!
Shannan Lerch: Damage.
Nathan drops down, putting his knee into Cash's back, and presses the razor wire against his forehead. He pulls back, opening up deep gashes in his opponents head. Small trickles of crimson begins to roll down Waylon's face, as he screams out in pain. NvL eventually drops the bundle, and hits Cash with a few quick punches to the head, opening him up even more. He stands with a gloating smile, as Waylon lays on the ground, giving the camera a good shot of the blood running down his face.
Zach Davis: This is absolutely disgusting. How can these men subject themselves to something like this.
Shannan Lerch: Hate, pure hate drives these men, and I am loving it!
Waylon tries to get up, but Nathan gets impatient quickly, and drags him to his feet. He sets him against the cage, and backs his way across the ring, before sprinting forward. He dives, going for a spear, but Waylon moves at the last second. NvL, instead of hitting solid cage, this the door, which springs open. Nathan tumbles to the floor, hitting his head hard on the concrete.
Shannan Lerch: Things may have just turned sour for NvL!
Once Waylon realizes what is going on, his first instinct is to go out of the cage after his prone opponent. He stops himself, and turns toward the razor wire. He grabs it, and walks over to a corner. Slowly, Cash unspools the wire, and begins wrapping it around the ropes, forming a triangle with the angles of the turnbuckle. He goes up and down, forming a wall of razor wire in the corner, before dropping what's left of the spool, and turning toward the cage door. By this time, NvL has dragged himself back in under the bottom rope, and brought himself to his feet. Waylon acts quickly, whipping him towards the razor wire. NvL puts his hand out, and uses his hands to stop him inches from the dangerous wall. Unfortunately, Waylon though of that, and runs toward him, leaping into the air, and hitting Nathan with a double knee to the back, ramming his chest into the razors
Shannan Lerch: Unbelievable!
NvL stumbles backwards, and the sharp wire catches his shirt, shredding it. It also has opened a number of gashes in his torso. Red liquid runs down his chest, as Waylon hits him with a chop block, sending him to his back. Cash immediately stands, and begins climbing the ropes.
Zach Davis: Waylon has show no interest in pinning NvL.
Shannan Lerch: Why would he? He doesn't want the match to end. He want to punish NvL for everything he's done.
Waylon grabs the brass knuckles, and slides them over his fingers before dropping back to the mat. He turns to see that NvL has slid himself out of the cage door again. Cash gives chases, jumping out of the cage to the floor. He runs at NvL, but Nathan drops down, hitting Waylon with a drop toe hold, sending him face first into the cell wall. He quickly lifts Waylon up in a spinebuster position,slams him against the cage, and turns around to slam him into the cell wall, before finally hitting him with a spinebuster on the hard floor.
Zach Davis: A nasty assault from NvL, and once again things are not looking good for Waylon.
NvL slowly uses the cage to stand up. He glares down at Waylon, breathing heavily as he thinks over his next move. He suddenly spot the brass knuckles on Cash's hand, and takes them for himself. He slowly slides them down over his fingers, savoring the anticipation. As Waylon stands, he cocks back, and swings violently. Waylon manages to duck the punch, and kick Nathan in the gut, before hitting him with a suplex on the concrete. NvL's body makes a sickening slat as it hits the ground.
Zach Davis: The pace has slowed, but these two men are still fighting with everything they have.
Shannan Lerch: You start to wonder how much they could possibly have left. This has been simply brutal.
Waylon slowly rises to his feet, and brings Nathan with him. He goes to Irish whip the man, but Nathan reverses it, sending Waylon sprinting into the cell wall. He then picks up the set of stair by the side of the ring, and sets them against his shoulder. Once Waylon turns around, NvL runs at him, and hurls the stairs forward. Waylon dives out of the way, and the stairs go flying through the cell wall, sending the large section of steel mesh to the ground. While Waylon is distracted by that, NvL slams into him, pressing him into a still standing section of cell, before hitting him with a spinning belly to belly suplex, that ends with Waylon landing on the fallen section of cell. NvL gradually drags himself over his opponent for the cover.
… 3 no!
Waylon just manages to get the shoulder up.
Zach Davis: Absolutely unbelievable fortitude from both of these men. This has been an absolute war.
Shannan Lerch: The fans were expecting a violent, brutal encounter, and they have not been disappointed.
On his knees, NvL delivers punch after punch to the blood soaked face of Waylon Cash. After a while, he stands up, and reaches over the barrier, grabbing a chair from a fan at ringside. He looks as if he might hit Waylon with it, but he shakes his head, and tosses it on top of the cell. He begins to climb up to the top, and once there, he just sits on the edge, waiting for Waylon to stir. Cash drags himself over to the cell, and begins climbing. By the time he is halfway up, NvL is standing, chair in hand, waiting for his arrival. He allows Waylon to fully get on top of the cage, and rise to his feet, before he takes a swing. The steel connects with Waylon's head, sending him crumpling to the mesh steel beneath him.
Zach Davis: It seems as if Waylon has very little left.
NvL lifts Cash to his feet, and runs across the roof with him, trying to toss him over the edge. At the last second, Waylon drops down, and grabs the edge, barely keeping himself from a long fall. NvL grins down, as Waylon angles from the edge. Nathan crouches down, and Cash gouges his eyes in desperation. NvL stumbles backwards, allowing Waylon to climb back up. NvL is still partially blind, as Waylon lfits him up, and scoop slams him onto the steel roof. He then drops down,and wraps his hand around Nathan's throat.
Zach Davis: NvL is being choked now!
Shannan Lerch: The name of the game in this one is hurt your opponent, and Cash is doing everything he can to cause pain to NvL.
Cash grabs his opponent by the hair, and drags him over to the edge. He tries to shove him off, but NvL fights it. He hits Waylon with an elbow to the skull, sending him stumbling to the middle of the roof. Nathan stands up, btu with a primal scream, Waylon Cash spritns toward him, spearing him off the side of the cell. Both men go plummeting to the ground, crashing through the announce table, as the crowd screams “HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT!”
Zach Davis: Jesus Christ! Waylon just sacrificed himself entirely, to hurt NvL! This is the craziest thing I think I have ever seen!
Shannan Lerch: Both of these men are down, and they very well may never get up again.
Waylon and Natahan lay unconscious, among the wreckage of the table. Neither of them stirs even slightly, prompting the referee to check on them. Upon doing so, he signals to the back, bringing out a set of EMT's wheeling two stretchers down to ringside. The cell is slowly raised, giving the medical staff room to work. They rush to the brutal scene, and begin lifting the men onto the mobile beds.
Zach Davis: Well, it looks like this one will end in a no contest. Certainly not a disappointment by any means, but you have to wonder if these two will be okay.
Shannan Lerch: they gave everything they had to destroy each other tonight, and they may have gotten their wish.
Roxxanne Savage suddenly runs down the ram, followed closely by her very large brother, Scott. They both stand by Waylon's side, as the EMT's load him onto the stretcher, and begin wheeling him up the ramp. The team working on NvL finishes about the same time, and they wheel the two men toward the back, side by side.
Zach Davis: We can only wish the best for these two wrestlers. This has been absolutely insane, and I honestly hope I never see anything like it again.
Part way up the ramp, both men begin to move. NvL is the first to open his eyes, and when he realizes what is going on, he lunges for Waylon's gurney. Both men fall to the ramp, and NvL begins leveling punches at Cash's head. At first it looks like Waylon isn't going to defend himself, but soon the two men are laying on the ground, trading punches.
Zach Davis: Holy hell! It looks like this match may not be over!
Shannan Lerch: Nathan and Waylon refuse to stop fighting, and the bell never rang! This match is still on! We may see a winner yet!
Waylon and Nathan slowly stand up, throwing fists back and forth the whole time. Blood runs down Cash's face, as well as NvL's torso.
Zach Davis: These men are fighting purely on instinct and neural impulses now. They are dead on their feet, just trying to hurt each other.
Shannan Lerch: This goes beyond hurting each other. They want to end each other's careers!
Nathan hooks Waylon's head under his arm, and goes for a suplex, but Cash catches him with a knee to the skull, causing Nathan to drop him back to his feet. Waylon then goes for a superkick, but NvL ducks underneath it, and spins around, hitting Cash hard with a polish hammer. He falls down, and Nathan stands over him with a grimace of hate and pain on his face. He grabs Waylon, and drags him back toward the ring, tossing him carelessly through the cage door. He follows after, ans as soon as both men are back inside, the cell lowers back down over them.
Zach Davis: These two men should not be continuing this mach. This is insane.
NvL climbs the ropes, and pulls down the sledgehammer, stalking the fallen Waylon with it. Cash gets to his hadns and feet, just as NvL brigns the hammer straight up, and then down on his spine. Waylon falls to the ground, yelling loudly, as he clutches his back. He rolls over, and NvL brings the hammer high above himself, he brings it down hard, his target being Waylon's head. Cash moves just in time, and the force of the blow punches a small hole in the mat.
Zach Davis: My god, that might have killed the man!
NvL can't pull the hammer out of the mat, and Waylon isn't getting up, so he climbs the ropes again, and pulls down the staple gun. He pops a few staples out to make sure it's working, before walking back over to his opponent. He grabs Waylon's head, and lifts him up, slowly lowering the staple gun to his forehead. He squeezes the handle, and Cash cries out as the metal staple pierces his flesh.
Zach Davis: This is sadistic, I don't know why the ref is allowing this to continue.
Shannan Lerch: Because this is Hardcore Hell, bitch!
NvL lowers the staple gun again, and sends another piece of sharpened metal into Waylon's skin. Cash has had enough, he reaches forward, and pulls back with an elbow to NvL's groin. Nathan collapses to the ground, as Waylon slowly picks himself up. He grabs the staple gun, and this Nathan's forehead with three quick staples, before throwing it to the ground. As NvL is writhing on the ground in pain, Waylon climbs the ropes, and yanks down the length of logger's chain.
Zach Davis: what exactly is he planning to do with that?
His question is answered quickly, as Cash swings it high above his head, and brings it down across Nathan's back like a giant, steel whip. NvL this the ground, and Waylons swings the chain, connecting again with his opponent's back. He hits him a third time, before dropping the chain, and screaming “IT'S OVER!”
Zach Davis: Waylon looking to end it.
Cash climbs one more time, and grabs the final remaining weapon, a bag filled with thumbtacks. He dumps them on the canvas with a smile, before tossing the empty sack aside. He lifts NvL up, and underhooks both of his arms.
Shannan Lerch: He's going for the Killshot!
Cash lifts NvL up, and brings him down hard, head first, on the pile of thumbtack, before covering him up.
Waylon rolls off of NvL, as the ref tries to tell him he's won the match.
Kyle Steel: Your winner by way of pinfall, Waylon Cash!
The crowd erupts, as the referee lifts Waylon to his feet, and NvL rolls out of the cage. The ref lifts Waylon's hand in the air, and the crowd's reaction gets louder, as Steve Orbit comes running down to the ring, Tag Team titles in hand. He runs through the broken section of cell, and slides through the cage door. He hands Waylon his title, and then raises the bloodied man's hand high in the air.
Shannan Lerch: Steve Orbit has come down to celebrate this huge victory with his tag team partner.
Waylon celebrates, holding the title high, as Roxxanne applauds from the outside with tears in her eyes. Then, suddenly, Waylon turns, and clocks Orbit with the title belt.
Zach Davis: What the hell?!
Waylon drops the belt, and glares down at Steve. He lifts him up, and hits him with a killshot, leaving him laying in the middle of the ring.
Shannan Lerch: Waylon Cash has just turned on Steve Orbit! Are we seeing the end of the Homegrown Players?!
Zach Davis: That's what it looks like to me. Waylon Cash has a lot of explaining to do.
Cash picks up his title belt with an evil smirk, and slides out of the cage, as Roxxanne looks on, confused. He makes his way up the ramp, and as he does so, Scott Savage steps out onto the stage with a smile. Once Waylon hits the top of the ramp, they embrace, as the crowd boos madly. They throw trash, as Scott holds Waylon's hand high in the air, and they disappear behind the curtain together.
We come back from a promo for next months Aftermath PPV with a shot of the WCF United States Title hanging over the ring. As the camera pulls back the shot to bring into focus the crowd, ladders can be seen circling the ring. The shot is pulled back even farther and tables can be seen already set up, some with chairs laying on top of them.
Kyle Steel: The following is a Tables, Ladders and Chairs and it is for the WCF United States Title!
Big pop from the crowd.
Kyle Steel: The fast participant to retrieve the title belt will be declared the winner and the WCF United States Champion!
“Am I Psyscho” plays and the arena goes dark as red and white pyro goes off from the sides of the stage.
Kyle Steel: Introducing first the challenger, weighing in two hundred and twenty five pounds, he is The Wildcard.....Tek!
Huge pop from the crowd as the spotlights and the camera find Tek as he is making his way through the crowd, slapping and shaking hands as he heads for the barricade.
Zach Davis: And there's Tek making his usual entrance through the crowd, although it's interesting to note that Cherokee Winters isn't out here as she usually is. Perhaps Tek asked her to stay in the back due to the danger of this match?
Shannan Lerch: Seems logical. After the war of words between these two as of late, putting them into a match where weapons aren't only legal but encouraged just makes this a bomb waiting to go off.
Tek reaches the barricade and pulls off his hoodie and sweatshirt before tossing it into the crowd. Tek now hopping over the barricade before rolling into the ring and heading to the corner. He climbs up to the second turnbuckle and puts his gloves together and shows his name on the gloves.
Zach Davis: Tek seems as ready as ever for this match. We've heard him talk about how he believes Price to be no better than the champions he claims to be nothing like. Tek feels like he may be the underdog but now is his time to rise up and show the world just who he is, starting with winning the United States Title.
Shannan Lerch: He most certainly would get noticed if he can win tonight. But he's going to be facing one heck of a test.
Tek eyes up the US Title hanging above the ring as his music fades out.
Kyle Steel: And introducing his opponent...
"4 Words To Choke Upon" by Bullet For My Valentine hits the PA System as the lights in the arena drop. Strobe lights emanate from the stage area as Jay Price walks out from the back, sans his usual bag of popcorn.
Kyle Steel: From Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, weighing in tonight at two hundred and thirty nine pound, he is the WCF United States Champion....Jay Price!
A pop from the crowd as Price takes a minute to stare down his US Title as it hangs over the ring before he heads down the ramp toward the ring and rolls in under the bottom rope. The referee has to step in front of Tek to keep him back as Price looks over and gives him a smirk.
Zach Davis: And here is the United States Champion, Jay Price. This match is a result of Price taking offense with some things that Tek had to say about Price's reign as US Champion, mainly that it seemed like Price was ducking challenges.
Shannan Lerch: Well now that's not entirely fair. Price has faced every challenger that he's been put in front of without complaining. But when Tek came out of the blue with his challenge and Price shot him down for not earning his shot, suddenly Price is a coward.
Zach Davis: Are you actually defending Price?
Shannan Lerch: As crazy as it sounds, yes.
Zach Davis: Well no matter what you think of the situation, these two eventually decided to make this match happen and to settle their war of words once and for all. And I'm expecting this to be a violent affair.
Shannan Lerch: That we can agree on.
Kyle Steel exits the ring as both Tek and Price wait for the bell in their corners, both staring up at the US Title. Senior Referee Stanley Moser, from the safety of outside of the ring, calls for the bell to start this match.
[DING! DING! DING!]
Both Price and Tek come out of their corners and they circle each other a few times before they move in for a collar and elbow tie-up. They fight for control just briefly before Price shoves Tek off of him and into the ropes. Tek not to be deterred as he goes right back at Price for a tie-up. Again they fight for control and again Price ends up shoving him off, this time into the corner.
Zach Davis: Tek is going to have to be smarter here. Price might not have that much of a size advantage, but he knows how to use the little of one that he has to his benefit.
Tek now staying in the corner as it looks like he wants Price to bring the fight to him. Price obliges and tries to tie-up in the corner. Tek ducks it and gets behind Price, now firing off some quick kicks to the legs. Price is caught off guard as he gets himself turned around and now it's Tek with some quick forearm shots to the head and chest. Tek now going at Price like a rabid dog, throwing jabs, haymakers and every other kind of strike you can think of at Price as he tries to cover himself up. Tek finally gets Price down on the mat and he begins stomping down on him.
Shannan Lerch: I don't ever remember seeing Tek go off like he is now. He's like a man possessed.
Tek now pulling the obviously dazed Price up to his feet only to throw him out of the ring through the second rope. Price lands hard on the outside as Tek climbs out onto the apron and drops to the ground. Tek now heading for the nearby table and he grabs the chair that's laying on it. Tek now banging the chair on the ground, screaming for Price to get up. Price is up, slowly but surely as he's still trying to figure out what the hell happened after the bell rang, and Tek catches him in the gut with the chair. Price is double over and Tek smacks him over the back with the chair. Price drops to his knees and Tek hits him again, this time in the chest. Price drops to the ground, clutching at his chest as Tek drops the chair on top of him and walks away to grab a ladder. He grabs the first one that he comes to and slides it into the ring.
Zach Davis: And we're going to get to see a ladder introduced to this match early on.
Tek now sliding in and he gets to setting it up. Price is sitting up on the ground outside the ring after the chair shots. Tek finally gets the ladder set up and he starts climbing as Price pulls himself up to his feet and slides into the ring. Tek is halfway up the ladder and so focused on the title that he never sees Price run right at the ladder and drive his shoulder into one of the legs. Tek hits the mat and the ladder lands on top of him as Price drops to a knee, still feeling those chair shots. Tek pushes the ladder off of him and starts to get up but Price beat him to the punch and he tackles Tek right back to the mat. Price now the one throwing lefts and rights as Tek is forced to cover up his face.
Zach Davis: The brutality! My god listen to this crowd, it's like they're dying to see blood spilled.
Price now back up and he's dragging Tek up along with him. Price from out of nowhere grabs the head and tries for the Downfall but Tek pushes him off and into the ropes. Price hits them, comes back and Tek tries to go for something but Price is coming with too much momentum and hits him with a clothesline. Tek back up and Price goes right at him, backing him into the corner with lefts and rights. Tek is now the one slumped over in the corner as Price digs his boot into his chest. Price now pulling Tek up to his feet before throwing him over the top rope. Price turns his back to go for the ladder in the ring and never sees Tek as he lands on the apron and not the ground. Price now pulling the ladder back upright and with his back turned to Tek, Tek hops up onto the top rope and springboards into the ring with a clothesline that catches Price in the back of the head. Price falls forward along with the ladder and lands with a crash.
Shannan Lerch: My god did you see Price's face collide with the rungs on that ladder?
Tek now rolling Price off of the ladder as he tries to get it set back up. Once it's up he starts to climb when Price grabs hold of one of his feet. Tek now trying to shake Price off as he looks up at the US Title. Price now up to his feet but Tek shoves him off with his foot. Tek now trying to scurry up the ladder but Price grabs hold of his legs. Price now using his strength to pull Tek's feet off the rungs and then lets go, dropping Tek back to the mat. Price now with the atomic drop before grabbing hold of Tek, spinning him around and then sending him headfirst into the ladder.
Zach Davis: There' no way that this is going to end well.
Tek's head is between two rungs as the ladder falls forward onto the mat. Price now grabbing Tek's legs, lifting them into the air before slamming them back down onto the rungs of the ladder. He does it a second time. And a third.
Zach Davis: My god Price looks like he's trying to make it so Tek can never walk again.
Price now pulling Tek out of the ladder and he rolls him off to the side. He tries to pick up the ladder and set it up, only to find that all the action the ladder has gotten has left it with a broken leg and it promptly falls over. With a scream of rage Price pushes the ladder out of the ring with his foot and then rolls out of the ring to get another ladder. Tek meanwhile is on the opposite side of the ring crawling toward a chair. Price grabs hold of a ladder, this one slightly larger, and he slides it into the ring. Not caring where Tek is, Price slides into the ring and starts setting up the ladder. Tek gets himself up using the chair almost as a crutch and he sees Price has a new ladder set up. Price starts to climb as Tek slides himself into the ring and, using a burst of energy, connects with a chair shot to the back just as Price is halfway up the ladder. Price falls and crashes to the mat as Tek drops as well out of exhaustion.
Shannan Lerch: Both of these guys have been giving it there all since the bell rang and you can see the effects it's taken. We're just over ten minutes into this match and already both men look like they've been in a war.
Tek the first one back up to his feet as he uses the ladder to get up. Tek now putting his foot on the bottom rung as he starts to climb. Price stirring on the mat as he looks up and sees Tek climbing. Tek now halfway up and Price is on his feet. Tek now reaching, his fingertips just brushing the belt. Price isn't about to let him win this match as he begins to climb up the ladder on the same side as Tek. Price now wrapping his arms around Tek's bod almost as if he's going to try for a German Suplex.
Zach Davis: My god you have to be kidding me!
Price is trying with everything he has to pull this off but Tek grabs hold of the sides of the ladder for dear life. Price is putting all of his weight into it as Tek tries to kick him off with his legs. As all of this is going on the ladder starts to rock until finally it falls backward with both men still on it. Price hits the mat first with Tek landing on top of him and the ladder landing on Tek. We get a quick instant replay from an above the ring view as Price, Tek and the ladder all fall backward.
Shannan Lerch: OH MY GOD!
Price is able to roll Tek off of him as he rolls out of the ring, definitely showing that he got the worst of that crash as his nose has been busted open. Tek is still on the mat as he's trying to untangle one of his legs from the ladder. Price, seeing that Tek is having problems, spots the chair from earlier. Price grabbing the chair and he slides into the ring.
Zach Davis: I said it earlier, I'll say it again: there's no way this is going to end well.
Tek sees Price with the chair and tries to free himself but Price swings down with the chair and connects with the shin of Tek. Tek howling in pain as Price tosses the chair out of the ring, obviously happy with himself.
Shannan Lerch: That chair shot sounded just horrible. And I can only imagine how it must of felt.
Price now dropping to the mat as he rolls out of the ring. Price grabs hold of Tek's arm and begins yanking on it, trying to pull him free of the ladder and out of the ring. Tek finally comes loose and Price lets him drop to the ground. Tek immediately grabbing hold of his shin as Price looks around. He spots a table and decides to drag it over. As he's doing that, Tek is crawling to the apron and he ends up under the ring. Price gets the table set up where he wants and turns around to find Tek gone. Price now looking for Tek all around the ring but he's nowhere to be seen. Realizing that he's wasting a golden opportunity, Price slides back into the ring and tries to climb the ladder. Tek reappears from under the ring and using the apron he slides into the ring behind Price, a fire extinguisher in hand. Price is just inches from reaching the belt when Tek lets loose with the extinguisher, spraying Price in the face. Price is blinded but manages to stay up on the ladder.
Zach Davis: How in the hell is Price still upright on that ladder?
With it now empty Tek takes a more practical approach and throws it at Price, nailing him in the back. Price slumps over on the ladder and drops down a few rungs but is still somehow holding on. Tek goes around to the other side of the ladder and begins climbing. As he nears the top, Price comes to and quickly makes his way back up. Both men now trading shots atop a fifteen foot ladder. Tek gets the better of Price and Price again slips down a few rungs. Seeing Tek is almost there, Price begins rocking from side to side, trying to tip the ladder. It works as Tek is forced to quit reaching and hold onto the ladder to keep from falling off. Price now rocking harder and the ladder finally tips, sending Tek crashing into the top rope and over onto the apron as Price hits the mat and the ladder ends up sliding over the top rope.
Crowd: DUB SEE EFF! DUB SEE EFF! DUB SEE EFF!
Zach Davis: And this capacity crowd is on their feet as they know they are witnessing a battle for the ages.
Price is rolling around on the mat, trying to figure out where Tek and the ladder are. Seeing that the ladder is out of the ring and Tek has dropped to the ground, Price rolls out of the ring. Tek is trying to get back up to his feet as Price pulls him up and pushes up against the apron. Price now with a few chops to the chest before he picks Tek up and dumps him on the apron. Price now turning around and he finds himself a table. Price grabs hold of it and drags it a bit closer as Tek starts to sit up on the apron. Price turns around and Tek catches him with a boot to the chest. Price is pushed back against the table as Tek raises himself up to his feet and then leaps off the apron looking to hit an axe handle...BUT PRICE CATCHES HIM! Price catches Tek somehow and then lifts him up and over and through the table with a belly to belly suplex.
Crowd: HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT!
Replays galore are shown as the crowd goes nuts.
Zach Davis: How in the hell did Price pull that one off?
Shannan Lerch: I have no freaking clue!
Tek is writhing in pain as Price obviously exhausted himself with that move. He's now slowly making his way to the nearest ladder, trying to win this match. He finally gets his hands on it and slides it into the ring. Price now sliding in under the bottom rope as Tek has finally freed himself from the wreckage of the table. Price now trying to get the ladder upright as quick as he can as Tek begins to crawl to the apron. Price gets it up and starts to climb as Tek crawls in under the bottom rope. Price near the top as Tek somehow gets to his feet and grabs hold of Price's legs. Tek now pulling Price back down to the mat and he connects with an uppercut. Tek now with a knee to the midsection that doubles over Price and then a knee lift to the face that takes him to the mat. The trickle of blood that had been coming from Price's nose is now a steady stream. Tek, looking like a shark that just saw a wounded seal, begins stomping down on him. Tek now with the Flare Drop and the crowd is getting behind him.
Shannan Lerch: Listen to this crowd Zach. It's like they can feel the underdog is close to winning this match.
Price is trying to get himself back up as Tek positions himself for a superkick. He snaps it off...
Zach Davis: The Genocide!
...BUT PRICE DUCKS IT! Tek misses with The Genocide and stumbles as Price pops up to his feet behind him. Tek now spinning around and Price goes for the Downfall. But again Tek had it scouted and he pushes Price off toward the ladder. Price stops himself just short of it and spins around in time to see Tek coming at him. Price with the drop toe hold and Tek catches the bottom rung with his jaw.
Shannan Lerch: MOTHER OF GOD!
The bottom rung of the ladder is broken off as Tek slumps to the ground. Price goes around to the other side of the ladder and begins to make his way up.
Zach Davis: TEK IS STILL ALIVE?
Tek does indeed look alive as he begins to pull himself up his side of the ladder.
Shannan Lerch: How in the name of all that is holy is he still conscious?
Tek begins to claw his way up the ladder as quickly as he can as Price is just reaching the top. Price gets his fingertips on the belt just as Tek gets to his level. Tek with a jab to the gut. Price with a left. Tek with another shot. Price responds. They're trading shots fifteen feet above the ring once again as the crowd holds it's breath. Tek throws a wild punch and Price blocks it. Price with a punch to the face and then he rams Tek's face into the top of the ladder. Somehow Tek keeps his balance but Price grabs him by the head.
Zach Davis: No...no he can't be thinking about-
Price leaps off the ladder pulling Tek with him as he hits a Downfall from the top of the ladder.
Crowd: HOLY FUCK! HOLY FUCK! HOLY FUCK!
Shannan Lerch: I'm not even going to try and apologize for the crowd, that was just fucking awesome.
Tek is out cold as Price makes his way over to the ladder and slowly climbs it. He reaches the top, reaches up and unhooks the belt as the referee calls for the bell. "4 Words To Choke Upon" hits the speakers as Price celebrates atop the ladder.
Zach Davis: And Jay Price wins it! Jay Price is still the WCF United States Champion!
The referee enters the ring to check on Tek as Price looks down, a smile on his face. The music fades out as Price demands a microphone.
Jay Price: Tek. TEK! Can you hear me?
There's no response from Tek as Price's smile grows.
Jay Price: Tell you what Tek, since you're obviously not feeling the greatest, I'm going to let you keep that mask just one more week. But next week on Slam, you better be ready boy. Because you and I are going to stand right here, in my ring, and you're going to take that damn thing off. Price drops the microphone to the mat and then raises the US Title over his head as the camera zooms in on the belt.
Shannan Lerch: Well there you have it folks. Jay Price retains the United States Title over Tek in a TLC Match, and now next week Tek must unmask.
Price exits the ring and celebrates as he makes his way to the back. We go to another promo for the main event as Price disappears backstage.
The opening horns of "Flashlight" by Parliament Funkadelic play over the PA. As the first "YOW!" is heard and the song kicks in, a pink strobe light flashes throughout the arena. Small pink lights swirl around the crowd and the entire arena and eventually converge into one big pink spotlight as "The Mack" Steve Orbit appears at the top of the aisle. Steve takes his time, strutting down the ramp, talking to fans who mostly cheer him on-- however, he does occasionally offend a girl or two with his sometimes rude, sexual comments. At ringside he begins the process of taking off whatever pimp attire he is wearing that night, whether its a mink coat, designer suit, etc and always hands his gold chains and his hat to a ring hand. His in-ring attire consists of black spandex shorts with "Pimpin" on the back in pink, and pink boots. He has a body that resembles a model more than a wrestler, he is perfectly chiseled and cut, but he is not huge and muscular like some wrestlers. He continues to flirt with the girls in the crowd as he enters the ring, showing off his body and blowing kisses. The crowd goes bananas when he hits the ring, as OR-BIT chants are heard all over the arena.
Zach Davis: Well, the moment is upon us for Steve Orbit, his do or die moment.
Shannan Lerch: He should have just quit and left with his dignity intact. Jonny Fly is going to embarrass him.
Kyle Steel: The following contest is scheduled for one fall... if Steve Orbit loses this match, he WILL be fired by our CEO, Jonny Fly. Introducing first, from Oakland, California... weighing in at two hundred and thirty pounds... he is.. still.. one-half of the WCF World Tag Team champions... THE MACK... STEVE ORBIT!!!
The crowd pops huge for Orbit. The camera pans around the crowd, picking up on a lot of signs showing their support for him.
Zach Davis: It's pretty clear that the fans don't want to see the Mack go anywhere. He's one of our most beloved superstars, no doubt about it.
The lights in the arena fade out. After a few suspense filled seconds the words ‘The Dynasty’ appear in bold italic lettering on the jumbotron as the beginning of “300 Violin Orchestra” begins to play. A single spotlight turns on and illuminates the silhouette of a man standing on the stage. As the song begins to speed up, the lights come on revealing Jonny Fly.
Fly stands on the stage with his eyes directly fixed on the ring. The jumbotron changes to the words ‘This is the Era of Jonny Fly.’ The music slows down and a barrage of fireworks begins to go off behind Fly. His eyes remain fixed on his opponent throughout. Slowly and deliberately he begins to make his way toward the ring. The music picks up one last time and Fly stops at the bottom of the ramp with his eyes still directly fixed on the ring. He stops and takes a few moment to exchange a long stare with his opponent before finally sliding into the ring.
Kyle Steel: And his opponent... hailing from New York, New York... weighing in at two hundred and twenty-five pounds... he is the Chief Executive Officer of the Wrestling Championship Federation... THE DYNASTY... JONNY FLY!!!
Shannan Lerch: Wait... what?
Zach Davis: Is that Corey Black?!
Shannan Lerch: It's... that's Corey Black. That's not Jonny Fly. What the hell is going on?
Orbit and Black... er... Fly keep their eyes locked on each other. They meet in the center of the ring, with the ref standing between them. After some brief words from the ref, he calls for the bell.
DING DING DING
And we're off. Orbit tries talking to Black asking what's going on... but since he's Fly, he shoves Orbit. Orbit shoves back. Fly slaps Orbit in the face with an open palm, infuriating Orbit-- Orbit swings a big right hand, but Fly ducks out of the way, wrapping his arms around Orbit and punching him in the side. Fly pushes Orbit into the corner and keeps hitting him with lefts and rights to the gut. Finally, the ref breaks them apart, and Fly returns to the center of the ring. Orbit shakes off the assault and meets him there. This time they tie up immediately-- Orbit goes behind Fly with a hammerlock, but Fly reverses it into a waistlock. Orbit tries to elbow his way out, but Fly lifts him up and drops him on his knee with an atomic drop.
Zach Davis: Orbit can't seem to get going here.
Shannan Lerch: That's Corey Black alright, but he's wrestling exactly like Jonny Fly. Very weird. Could it be that Jonny Fly's mind is trapped inside the body of Corey Black?
Zach Davis: Come on Shannan, what are the chances of that? This is real life, not a movie, things like that don't happen.
Shannan Lerch: But, seriously, I'm pretty sure...oh whatever, who cares, Fly still looks hot.
Orbit stumbles forward, and when he turns around, Fly charges forward with a clothesline-- Orbit ducks it at the last possible second. Now Fly turns around and Orbit starts landing some stiff kicks to Fly's thigh and knee. Fly tries to avoid but Orbit follow close behind around the ring, kicking him. Finally, Fly is able to grab one of Orbit's legs and drop him with a single-leg takedown. He follows up with an elbowdrop to the inside of Orbit's leg. Fly takes a few steps around Orbit and lands another elbowdrop to his chest, before a series of stomps and kicks to the head.
Shannan Lerch: Well, Fly wanted to send a message-- I think he's sending it right now. Even if he's doing it through or with...or whatever, with Corey Black.
Zach Davis: I have to wonder if Steve Orbit is right about a few things-- even Corey Black mentioned to Fly, is this really good for morale? Should the owner of the company be doing things like this?
Shannan Lerch: Jonny Fly is a brilliant man. He should do whatever he wants, because he certainly knows what he's talking about. He knows how to get the job done.
Fly now has Orbit to his feet, Irish whipping him to the ropes-- and catching him in a backbreaker on the return. Fly drops down, covering Orbit.
Zach Davis: No, kickout before two.
Orbit pops up quickly after the pin attempt. Fly grabs him but Orbit turns it into a tie-up--- Fly throws Orbit to the mat with an armdrag. Orbit pops back up again, Fly grabs him and armdrags him to the mat, again. Orbit scrambles to get back up, this time he's met by a kick to the gut from Fly, followed by a snapping DDT. The momentum sends Orbit's head bouncing off the mat-- he sits up, and then falls back down. Fly goes to the ropes and comes back with a running kneedrop to Orbit's head. Fly covers Orbit again, hooking the leg.
Shannan Lerch: Another kickout before two. But I think we see where this match is heading.
Zach Davis: Corey... er... Jonny Fly, completely dominant thus far.
Fly kneels over Orbit who is still on the mat. He talks a little trash before grabbing him by the back of the head and hitting him with a flurry of right hands, until the ref pulls him off. Fly takes a moment to work the crowd, raising his arms in the air. The crowd gives a mixed reaction.
Zach Davis: As much as fans love Jonny Fly, I think a lot of them are upset that this match has been booked-- they're excited for the competition, but Steve Orbit is one of the most popular guys we have on the roster. I think a lot of fans don't think he deserves to be put in this situation.
Shannan Lerch: Wah, wah. They're all just jealous of Jonny Fly. Even if Jonny Fly is actually Corey Black.
As Orbit starts to get up, Fly approaches grabs him by the head-- Orbit sends a stiff shot to Fly's midsection. Fly is barely phased, but Orbit hits him with another punch, and another, breaking free from Fly's grasp. Orbit brings Fly to the mat with a snap mare-- and hits a quick standing dropkick, putting Fly on his back. Orbit leaps up in the air and hits an elbowdrop to Fly's chest-- he goes through the ropes to the apron, and slingshots in with a legdrop. Orbit rolls off of Fly and stays on his back for a moment, taking a breather.
Zach Davis: The Mack has taken a lot of punishment early on, but he needed to break Fly's momentum, and that's exactly what he did.
Fly and Orbit both begin to get back to their feet. Fly gets to a knee, and finally stands up, but Orbit leaps and bounces off the second rope--
Zach Davis: Disaster kick by Steve Orbit! Catches Fly, or Black, whoever...right in the side of the head.
Orbit covers Fly.
Shannan Lerch: Fly throws Orbit off before two.
The two men take their time getting back to their feet. Finally, they get up, meeting in the middle of the ring and locking up once again. Orbit gets Fly in a side headlock-- Fly pushes him off, but Orbit holds on to his arm and delivers a short-arm clothesline, sending Fly to the mat with force. Orbit rolls Fly over and climbs on his back, smashing his head into the mat a few times, getting a warning from the ref. Orbit stays on Fly's back and locks in a camel clutch.
Zach Davis: Submission hold is locked in! The Mack is back in this thing.
Orbit pulls as hard as he can, tightening the hold. Fly refuses to submit when the ref checks him. Fly tries to pry Orbit's hands off to no avail. After a few moments, Fly's face starts to turn red as he tries to fight out of the hold.
Shannan Lerch: Come on, Jonny!
Zach Davis: Way to be impartial, Shannan.
More time passes and Fly begins to push himself off the mat. He gets himself about an inch off the mat, before Orbit leaps up and uses his weight to force him back down. Orbit is visibly straining himself to keep the hold locked in as tight as possible. Despite that, Fly again tries to push himself off the mat-- finally, he comes close to getting to a vertical base. Orbit tries to switch into a sleeperhold, but Fly slips out, dropping down and rolling out of the ring.
Zach Davis: Fly's gotta be hurting now.
Orbit goes onto the apron and stalks Fly as he circles the ringside area. Fly watches Orbit, waiting for him to attack. Finally, Orbit drops down off the apron and runs after Fly. The ref starts the ten count.
Fly taunts Orbit, telling him to bring it on. Orbit charges forward, and the two men start trading right hands at ringside.
Orbit slams Fly's head into the apron.
Orbit goes to grab Fly to roll him back into the ring, but Fly escapes his grasp--
Zach Davis: Fly sends Orbit into the ringpost, face first!
Fly rolls back into the ring.
Orbit holds his jaw, looking for an opportunity to get back into the ring. Fly is waiting, moving in front of him.
Shannan Lerch: Orbit's gotta get back in or he's fired.
Orbit slides under the bottom rope, and Fly starts stomping him out immediately. Orbit uses the ropes to try to get back to his feet-- as he gets to a knee, Fly pulls him to his feet and starts hitting him with European uppercuts. He backs Orbit into a corner and begins hitting him with knee thrusts to the midsection. Fly whips Orbit-- Orbit reverses, whipping Fly to the opposite corner. Orbit charges forward, but Fly gets a leg up, hitting Orbit with a boot to the face. Orbit stumbles back, and Fly explodes out of the corner with a spear, landing on top of Orbit and hitting him with a series of mounted punches.
Zach Davis: Orbit just can't get ahead here. Fly is staying one step ahead.
Shannan Lerch: That's why he's a three-time World champion here in the WCF, Zach. That's why he's the best.
Fly pulls Orbit to his feet and hits a big spinebuster! Orbit snaps off the mat. Fly jumps to the second turnbuckle, springboarding off with a moonsault--
Zach Davis: Right into Orbit's knees! Orbit gets his knees up!
Now it's Orbit's turn to roll out of the ring and regain his composure. He leans against the guardrail, breathing heavily. Inside the ring, Fly is back to his feet, holding his midsection, but he's got his eyes on Orbit. Fly runs all the way across the ring and leaps through the ropes--
Zach Davis: SUICIDE DIVE-- RIGHT INTO THE GUARDRAIL!
Orbit ducks out of the way. The ref starts the ten count again.
Fly rolls around ringside, hurt. Orbit pulls him to his feet, cocks back his hand and--
Zach Davis: Pimp Slap! Orbit follows with a jawbreaker, and Fly is laid out once again.
Orbit slides into the ring.
Fly begins to get back up... but drops back down.
Fly gets up and slides back into the ring. As he gets back to his feet, Orbit catches him with a running high knee-- Fly stumbles foward, Orbit grabs him again and plants him with a legdrop bulldog!
Zach Davis: The crowd is actually getting behind the Mack!
Orbit drops down, pinning Fly.
Shannan Lerch: NO, kickout at two!
Orbit slowly gets back to his feet. He waits for Fly to get up--
Zach Davis: Orbit with a scissor kick-- Fly ducks it, using the momentum to throw Orbit on his shoulders! Samoan drop by Jonny Fly!
Shannan Lerch: Steve Orbit has taken a lot of punishment so far. I don't know how much he's got left in him.
Zach Davis: To be fair, Fly has taken his share too!
Fly grabs one of Orbit's arms and places him in an armbar.
Zach Davis: And now Fly is going for a submission maneuver.
Orbit yells out in pain as Fly pulls on the arm. A few moments pass with the pain very evident on Orbit's face. The ref checks Orbit, who refuses to submit.
Shannan Lerch: Just give up already.
Orbit starts to inch towards the ropes-- soon after, he reaches the bottom rope, and the ref instructs Fly to break the hold. Fly does not release the armbar until the ref is forced to start the five count, at which point he lets go. Now we are left with both men on the mat, breathing heavy. Fly starts to stir, slowly making his way to his feet. Orbit is on his side, holding his shoulder. Fly sends a kick to Orbit's back, causing him to arch in pain. Fly heads to the top turnbuckle...
Zach Davis: FROG SPLASH! Into a pin, hooking the leg!
Zach Davis: KICKOUT at two and a half!
Shannan Lerch: A classic Jonny Fly maneuver, but not enough to seal the victory.
Fly goes to grab Orbit, but he hits a low blow! Fly doubles over, holding his groin. The ref threatens disqualification, getting in Orbit's face.
Shannan Lerch: Disqualify him, ref!
Zach Davis: The Mack better be careful-- I know he wants to save his job, but getting disqualified will not accomplish that!
Orbit leaps up and hits Fly with a codebreaker! Fly falls backwards onto the mat. Orbit looks weary, but he smiles and lifts up one of his legs, moving his hands around like snakes before adopting the crane stance-- Fly gets up slowly--
Zach Davis: CRANE KICK BY THE MACK!
The crane gets a huge pop from the crowd. Orbit goes to the corner, climbing the turnbuckles. He leaps off with a somersault senton--
Shannan Lerch: OAKLAND SPLASH! NO!
Zach Davis: Orbit hooks the leg! Is it over?!
Shannan Lerch: NO! Fly puts his foot on the bottom rope!
Zach Davis: It's not over yet!
Orbit slams his hands on the mat in frustration. He pulls Fly off the mat and sets him up in a half-nelson--
Zach Davis: Here comes the Honey Dip-- Fly reverses it!
Fly puts Orbit in a half nelson, and then a full nelson. He plants Orbit with a full nelson slam. Fly pulls Orbit to his feet and whips him into the corner-- he follows with a corner splash! Orbit stumbles out of the corner--
Shannan Lerch: Discus Fly! Orbit is down!
Orbit is laid out. Fly stomps him a few times for good measure, before heading to the top turnbuckle--
Zach Davis: FLY SWATTER! Fly Swatter! Corey Black's body just performed a flawless Fly Swatter! It's over!
Shannan Lerch: WHAT!
Zach Davis: ORBIT KICKS OUT! This man wants to keep his job!
Fly sits up with a bewildered look on his face. He puts his boot across Orbit's throat and chokes him with his boot, until the ref threatens disqualification. Fly drops an elbow on Orbit, before pulling him to his feet. Fly puts Orbit in a headlock, and attempts to lift him for a suplex-- Orbit blocks it by putting his leg between Fly's legs. Fly attempts it again, Orbit blocks it again!
Zach Davis: Orbit headbutts his way out! He grabs Fly-- T-Bone suplex!
Shannan Lerch: Orbit jumps up and stomps Fly with both feet!
Zach Davis: He's heading back up top-- Fly is laid out--
Once again, Orbit leaps off the top with the somersault senton!
Zach Davis: OAKLAND SPLASH! SECOND OAKLAND SPLASH! He hooks the leg!
DING DING DING
"Flashlight" by Parliament Funkadelic plays over the PA.
Zach Davis: STEVE ORBIT WINS! STEVE ORBIT HAS DEFEATED JONNY FLY!
Shannan Lerch: So what now?! Is he still fired?! I guess we will have to wait and see.
Zach Davis: Either way, this is a huge victory for Orbit, perhaps the biggest of his career! What a night for the Mack!
Orbit sits in the corner, holding his side as the crowd pops huge. The smile on his face lets us know he is happy with his victory. Fly rolls out of the ring and heads up the ramp.
Jay Price is seen walking down the backstage area. He turns into a doorway and closes the door behind him, after looking in and out of the room he exits and closes the door behind him. Jay continues to walk down the stone backstage hallway. Many staff try and meet with him and talk, but he just ignores them, continuing on his way down the hallway. After moments of walking down the hallway out of no where, out of the janitors closet comes the same masked man.
Jay Price: What the fuck?!
He has a hammer in his hand as he hits Jay in the back with the hammer, causing Jay to hit the concrete ground hard.The masked man continues attacking Jay, kick by kick and knee by knee. He picks up Jay by the head and throws him into the concrete wall, injuring Jay's back even more. The masked man stops to enjoy the mayhem that he is causing to the Pantheon stable member. Jay sees the man taking his time and strikes, punching the masked man in the head multiple times, knocking him back more and more until his back reaches the janitor's closet once again. Jay then charges at the masked man, looking to slam him into the cleaning supplies that lie on the shelves in the closet.
Jay Price: You son of a bitch!
Jay runs, but the masked man side steps it and throws Jay towards the supplies. Jay is able to turn before impact, shielding him from hitting his head on the metal shelves. Slowly Jay slides to the floor in pain, holding his back with his left hand. The masked man grabs Jay by his hair and drags him out of the closet, as he does so he gets a sight of a huge and long table filled with different visual and audio equipment. He takes Jay and throws him on the table, causing Jay to slide on the equipment, eventually landing on the concrete hard and in pain. The masked mans looks at Jay for a moment before retreating back into the closet.
The masked man returns back in the hallway with a small bag in his hands. He opens it and pulls out black gloves, and he puts them on. They reaching into the bag once again to bring out a can of red spray paint. The masked man shakes the spray can before taking it and spraying on the concrete above the injured Jay Price. He sprays the words "Pantheon" in red, finishing off with a circle around it, and a slanted line going through the circle. He doesn't say a thing, as Jay is laying on the concrete, with his hand on his back in pain. A member of the medical staff hears Jay and races to the backstage to find the masked man. He medical staff member stops in his tracks while the masked man just stares upon the member's eyes.
Medical Staff: What are you doing here? Who are you?
Several moments continue to pass, as silence and tention fills the air. The medical member continues to stand, with fear filling his eyes. While the masked man's eyes stay completely black, as he looks on at the medical staff member. He tilts his head slightly, and that strikes fear into the medical staff member. He stands fearful, until he finally interupts the silence.
Medical Staff: Just wait until I tell Mr. Fly about this!
The masked man responds by taking the spray can and makes his way to the table. He then proceeds to spray on the table with the spray can. One simple word, four letters, seems to strike even more fear into the staff member. The masked man steps back from the table, and then looks at the words that he sprayed upon the table, the word "Haha" is seen in red. During this time Jay grabs the masked man's foot in rebellion against the attack. The masekd man slowly turns towards Jay and gives one single kick to the gut of Jay.
The kick sends both the medical staff and the masked man running, only in different directions. The masked man runs into the darkness of the hallway, near the parking lot. While the medical staff runs to Jay, laying on the cold concrete floor. The medical staff then calls for back up, yelling down the hallways hoping to get anyones attention.
Zach Davis: Folks, it is that time of the night and I for one cannot WAIT! Eric Price defends the WCF World Championship against Sarah Twilight! I think Eric will finally get the beating he deserves!
Shannan Lerch: I wouldn't be so sure of that. Eric Price has been ruthless, cunning and he truly is the greatest World Champion of all time. I think he will prove that again here tonight.
Zach Davis: Greatest World Champion? Are you blind? Eric Price has none nothing to deserve being called world champ!
Shannan Lerch: Do we have to start this now?
Zach Davis: Alright, fine. Folks, this one has been heating up for quite some time. It all started when Sarah Twilight made a HUGE return back in October to join Genesis in battling the now defunct Chrch of Dark Saints, as well as Pantheon..somewhat. She would go on to win that match along with Waylon Cash, despite Eric Price being a biased official for the match.
Shannan Lerch: Biased? Ha! Twilight forced his hand down for a three count. Since when is it alright to put your hands on an official?
Zach Davis: Whatever. Then came the WCF Classic, where Eric's grudge against Sarah continued. He even tried to cost her a match against Nathan von Liebert!
Shannan Lerch: Because she was CHEATING! If you're going to tell it, tell it right.
Zach Davis: Okay, Shannan. I distinctly remember Eric Price bringing a chair to the ring and sliding it to NvL. Like I said, he tried to cost her the match. But despite that fact, she would still go on to win the 2012 WCF Classic.
Shannan Lerch: Meanwhile, Eric was already moving UP in the world, having himself a World Championship match at One...which Twilight inserted herself into as the referee. UGH.
Zach Davis: As much as I would have loved to see Sarah stick it to him back then, she called that match completely down the middle. As we all know, unfortunately...Eric Price walked out of One as Champion.
Shannan Lerch: Thank God she was fair! Not that she is any other time.
Zach Davis: Riiiight Shannan, whatever you say. Anyhow, as Eric weaseled his way from his contract with the company in a very cowardly attempt to hang on to the World Championship without defending it...Sarah Twilight finally fought her way into being granted the World C ampionship match that she'd earned by winning the Classic.
Shannan Lerch: More like she bullied my brother into it!
Zach Davis: She earned it when she won that tournament and you damn well know it!
Shannan Lerch: Moving on! Eric was valiantly defending his World Championship in matches against Steeltoe Joe, FPV and he even took on ALL of Rebellion all by himself. What has Sarah done?
Zach Davis: Are you kidding me? Really? Eric cheated against Joe, CHEATED against Frank and that was NOT Rebellion that he 'dismantled' not by a long shot!
Shannan Lerch: You're just jealous cause he beat you too.
Zach Davis: UGH! Enough of this. Anyhow folks, Sarah Twilight was granted her championship match at any time of her choosing. She chose tonight and I for one think that she has Eric's number here tonight! This will definitely be one for the ages.
Shannan Lerch: HERE WE GO!
Kyle Steel: The following contest is scheduled for one fall...and it is for the WCF WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP!!!
The lights go out as a spotlight centers on stage. Piano chords begin a haunting melody, accompanied by heavy drum beats. The ROOF of the United Center comes OFF with MASSIVE CHEERS as the video wall displays the words THE ONLY ONE.
Zach Davis: HERE SHE COMES!
Pyros shoot up from the stage as our melody finally kicks into guitar. "The Only One" by Evanescence continues to play as Sarah finally walks out but this time, not onto the stage. Instead, she comes out from within the crowd and this causes them to go INSANE with cheers as she slaps hands with as many fans as possible on her way to the ring. She is greeted with DEAFENING cheers as she takes her time making it through the crowd and soaks them all in. Sarah spends a few long moments trying to get to as many people in the crowd as possible before finally making it to the barricade and hopping over. The vibrant redhead confidently swaggers towards the ring and steps inside. Pyros now shoot off from the ring posts and Sarah takes to each turnbuckle in succession, pointing out toward the crowd and smiling. The cheers become even LOUDER. As the music continues, Sarah rolls outside of the ring and finds a young fan sitting at ringside. She removes her signature "You Don't Matter" tee shirt that she wears over her wrestling attire and gives it to the young fan before returning to the ring as the music dies down. She stands in the ring confidently, waiting for her rival.
Zach Davis: Can you FEEL the intensity? The emotion? This is historic right here!
Shannan Lerch: Yeah, I guess.
Just then You Know My Name - by Chris Cornell hits. Gold lights start flashing as the music starts and as soon as Eric Price walks out, a gold spotlight shines on him as he makes his way to the ring with a slow and very hesitant walk. He takes his time...perhaps a bit too much as he creeps toward the ring, looking back toward the entrance ramp several times. He stops midway up the ramp, clutching the World Championship close to him. Sighing, he slowly continues his way into the ring. He immediately heads to his own corner and never stops clutching the World Championship.
Shannan Lerch: He is taking his time because he is afraid of what he might do to Sarah.
Zach Davis: Oh please! Gimmie a break! He is scared out of his mind of what SHE will do to him!
Kyle Steel: Ladies and Gentlemen this is our MAIN EVENT!
Kyle Steel: This contest may only be won via pinfall or submission, AND, if Eric Price intentionally gets himself counted out or disqualified or has anyone interfere in this matchup..he will LOSE the WCF World Championship!
Kyle Steel: At this time, I would like to introduce the official for the evening...Stanley Moser!
Zach Davis: Our senior referee overseeing things tonight.
Kyle Steel: And now...introducing first, the challenger...from Los Angeles, California...weighing in at one hundred and forty two pounds...she is "The Mistress of Mischief" SARAH TWILIGHT!!!
Sarah climbs the turnbuckle in her corner and the crowd once again comes UNGLUED for her. Cheering and chanting and hollering fills the United Center for almost a full five minutes. Eventually, they finally settle down.
Kyle Steel: And her opponent...from Pacific Palisades, California...weighing in at two hundred and fifty pound...he is the current reigning and defending WCF World Heavyweigt Champion....ERIC PRICE!!!
Eric holds the world championship, showing it off. The crowd 's boos drown out all other sound in the arena. He continues to taunt the crowd with the championship. Moser instructs him to turn in the championship so that the match can begin, but Eric just continues to taunt.
Zach Davis: Hold onto it while you can asshole!
Shannan Lerch: Still disrespecting, I see.
Zach Davis: You're damn right!
Sarah grows tired of Eric's stalling, She rushes him in the corner and NAILS him with lefts and rights before the bell can even be rung. The crowd is going INSANE. Eric tries to get away from the enraged challenger to collect himself but to no avail. Sarah sends a SHARP snap kick to Eric's face sending the current World Champion down. Eric scrambles on the ring, still dragging the World Title with him. Sarah continues to stalk him. Though suddenly, Eric jumps up and tries to hit her in the face with it, but she DUCKS! Sarah YANKS the WCF World Championship from Eric, and BLASTS Eric in the skull with it. She takes the championship in her hand and holds it skyward to a MASSIVE POP. The crowd continues to erupt and Sarah discards the World Title. Moser removes it from the ring, finally calling for the bell.
Shannan Lerch: Sarah already has Eric on injured with a CHEAP shot. The bell has JUST rung! The match hadn't even started and look at the damage that has been done!
Zach Davis: We all KNEW that Sarah would be pissed. We knew she was coming here to HURT Eric Price and we knew she was coming here with ONE thing in mind....capturing the WCF World Championship. Eric is in for the worst night of his life, and I love it!
Price scrambles to his feet but stumbles and falls back to the canvas after receiving the shot to the head from the World Title. Sarah continues her assault as she forces him back to his feet, sending him into the turnbuckle with a HARD Irish whip. The force of impact causes Eric to bounce off the turnbuckle and step a few steps forward clutching his back. Sarah is there to meet him as she delivers a devestating running plant clothesline. The back of Eric's head bounces off the mat with a sickening thud.
Zach Davis: This is nothing short of a beating, plain and simple. Eric Price is getting everything he desserves and then some! He is finding out the hard way what being in a FIGHT is all about.
Shannan Lerch: How can you condone this? She attacked him before the match even started!
Zach Davis: He was using stall tactics. She decided to get the match started and quite frankly, so what?
Sarah remains on the attack as she heads over to Eric once again, she hauls him up by the hair. She sends him barreling into the turnbuckle once again. She follows him in with a running knee to the midsection. Eric gasps out as the air is driven from him. But there is no repreive at all. She takes him to the opposite turnbukcle and REPEATS the process. Eric doubles over in pain as he clenches his abdomen. Though the small bit of relief he is afforded is short lived as Sarah DRIVES his head down into the canvas with a DDT. Sarah then drags him away from the corner and drops down for the cover. Moser checks the shouldders and gets into position.
Eric frantically shoots his left shoulder up.
Zach Davis: Sarah Twilight already getting into the head of Eric Price with an early pinfall attempt. Make no mistake about it, that wasn't expected to finish him off, that was simply to get to him.
Shannan Lerch: Don't be ridiculous. A DDT this early just wasn't enough to put him away. Twilight isn't as good as she thinks she is.
Sarah gets back to her feet and she smirks as Eric, kinda loopy after the shots turns and looks at Moser with a pale expression on his face. He has the senior official reasssure him that it was only two.
Zach Davis: You were saying, Shannan?
Shannan Lerch: Oh be quiet, he is just being sure!
Eric staggers to his feet after the reassurance that he was still in this and he stumbles right into a waiting, angry Sarah Twilight who sends him up and over with a T-Bone Suplex! Eric CRASHES into the mat and howls in agony, though he manages to roll himself to the outside. He clutches his back and looks in the ring at Twilight, shaking his head. He starts walking up the ramp.
Zach Davis: Where the hell does he think he's going? Hey stupid, you LOSE if you leave!
Shannan Lerch: He knows that, he's just taking a time out.
Zach Davis: There are no time outs!
Eric makes it about halfway up the ramp when he hears Moser begin his ten count. Eric stops and nervously looks back toward the timekeepers table where the world title sits. He looks back and forth between it and the exit, unable to ddecidde what he wants to do. However, the choice would be made for him as Sarah exits the ring and grabs hold of him, DRAGGING him back to the ring.
Zach Davis: There will be no easy way outs for Eric Price on this night! He is getting taken to the woodshed and I tell you, there couldn't be a grander sight in the entire worldd!
Sarah RUNS Eric into the ringpost before depositing him back into the ring. The crowd again ROARS MASSIVELY.
Shannan Lerch: And what the hell was that? Why isn't SHE being disqualified?
Zach Davis: Eric Price has gotten away with so much these past few months that it's about damn time that he was given a taste of his own medicine!
Eric is clearly dazed, but he tries his best to get up and manages to get to his hands and knees. He begins crawling away from Sarah, who methodically stalks him. Eric flails his arms at the ropes, trying to pull himself up and evntually he does. Though once he gets himself balanced, Sarah grabs hold of his waist from behind and takes him over for a HARD release German suplex. Eric again BOUNCES off the canvas and is OUT of it. Sarah crawls over for the cover, hooking the leg. Moser in position.
Eric drapes his leg over the bottom rope as he was close enough. This breaks the count, though Eric is pretty out of it.
Zach Davis: That was a close one! We just about had ourselves a new World Champion!
Shannan Lerch: No! Eric is fine, he just needs time to get prepared.
Zach Davis: He's had WEEKS to prepare!
Shannan Lerch: He needed more time!
Sarah moves in, hauling Eric up by the head once again, though this time, he shoots a well placed thumb to her eye, staggering the challenger back. Eric takes a moment to shake off the cobwebs and now he gains a sense of confidence as he grabs Sarah up for a scoop piledriver. He PLANTS her into the canvas and wastes NO time going for the cover. Moser checks her shoulders and starts his count.
Sarah shoots her shoulders off of the mat. The crowd roars as she kicks out.
Zach Davis: Eric mounting an offense now and he tries for the quick pinfall. Sarah with the kickout.
Shannan Lerch: That kinda looked like three to me.
Zach Davis: Get real!
Price now stomping away at Twilight enjoying every second of it, every single stomp meaning something to him as he looks to completely take the wind out of her! And oh my, now he starts elbowing her right in the chest, again! And again! And again!
Zach Davis: Price viciously attacking Twilight here.
Price now looks to the audience and raises his hand and grins at them celebrating his match as the crowd continues to boo him. Twilight down as Eric goes to the corner and gets up on the top rope.
Shannan Lerch: Oh my, this is high risk here, he shouldn’t do this. He goes for it.
Zach Davis: And he connects with the elbow drop right to Sarah Twilight! Cover!
And no, Sarah Twilight manages to kick out! Eric Price looks infuriated as he starts arguing with the official over the count of how this could be.
Shannan Lerch: And Eric Price is as shocked as anyone that Sarah Twilight was able to kick out of that, he does not understand nor does he know how she survived that.
Eric Price gets back on the offensive however as Twilight is down and he starts choking her out. The official admonishing him for that.
Zach Davis: And now Price showing his desperation here, choking Twilight out as the official quickly admonishes him for that.
Zach Davis: And finally Price lets go, he knows a disqualification would cost him the title so he is being careful. Personally, I wish he would have disqualified himself, no good bastard!
Shannan Lerch: Such bias, that’s horrible. Have some respect for our champion!
Price lets go but slaps Twilight in the face for good measure and now he grabs her legs and sets her up for a sharpshooter! Twilight is now in excruciating pain!
Zach Davis: And Price in control here as he has Twilight in a sharpshooter but she quickly reaches the ropes here and Price has to break the hold! Break it damn it! Ref get in there!
Shannan Lerch: Hey, he’s following the rules.
Zach Davis: And Price taking advantage of every rule possible as he feels his title slipping from his grasp.
Eric Price now drags Sarah Twilight to a corner by her legs and lifts her up right into the corner.
Shannan Lerch: Price now lifting Twilight up to the corner and oh my, she got a face full of turnbuckle and Price now seeing her stumble a bit grabs her by the neck and hits Reversal of Fortune!
Zach Davis: No, come on Sarah, come on!
Shannan Lerch: Cover!
Zach Davis: And thankfully a kick out!
Price now looks absolutely livid as he starts banging on the ring screaming “NO NO NO” not understanding what it will take to put Twilight away here tonight!
Shannan Lerch: And Eric Price absolutely losing his temper here, completely incredulous to Sarah Twilight kicking out despite all this punishment.
Zach Davis: She has something Price does not, she has heart!
Shannan Lerch: Oh quit sucking up.
Price completely losing it, he steps out of the ring and quickly grabs a steel chair from the outside.
Zach Davis: And oh my, looks like Price is going to disqualify himself here as he brings that steel chair into the ring. The ref trying to stop him. Price arguing with the ref however.
As Price argues with the ref, Davey Ortega comes from behind and as Sarah Twilight is getting up, he hits the Setting Sun on her. The crowd booing like crazy as this happens.
Shannan Lerch: Price still arguing with the official but wait, what’s this, that’s Davey Ortega, and Twilight getting up and oh my, the Setting Sun against her, an effective spear as she is down.
Zach Davis: And Ortega quickly running away to the back as the ref was completely distracted. Come on ref, do your damn job, god damn that Eric Price. Eric now letting go of the chair and throwing it to the outside as he gets into the ring, the ref completely unaware of what happened.
Crowd: Asshole! Asshole! Asshole!
Shannan Lerch: Smart man, smart man!
Zach Davis: And now a cover, it’s academic here!
Eric Price now confidently strutting into the ring as Twilight is done and he goes straight for the cover!
Zach Davis: And oh my God, Twilight still kicks out! Despite Price’s best efforts, he still can’t get the job done, even with help.
Eric Price: NO! Damn it you stupid bitch! Quit! Stay down!
Zach Davis: And Price losing his composure here because he knows he can’t beat Sarah Twilight, he cannot do it!
Shannan Lerch: Please, Price is just getting started against her.
Price goes to grab her but she gets a quick rollup against him.
Zach Davis: And Price barely manages to kick out of that one, we almost had a new World Champion!
Twilight getting up as Price is in disbelief about that quick rollup and he hits a clothesline against her and connects successfully as Twilight is down again!
Shannan Lerch: And Price now elbowing her knee, really viciously attacking her right knee here trying to cripple her tonight.
Price starts hitting his elbow against her knee, once, twice, three times, four times, five times and then decides to start stomping on it to inflict as much pain as possible. He then grabs Twilight who is still down and grabs her by the head. He lifts her and hits a suplex against her!
Zach Davis: Viciously attacking her right knee and now getting her up and a suplex from Price to Twilight! Pinfall attempt here!
Shannan Lerch: But yet again, Sarah Twilight kicks out!
Price in shock over the fact that Sarah Twilight is still in this match.
Zach Davis: And Price saying he’s had enough. Rolling out of the ring, what’s he doing here. He’s asking for his World Title. This is now the SECOND time that Eric Price has decided he doesn't want any part of Sarah Twilight tonight.
Shannan Lerch: And looks like he’s going attempt to take a walk here tonight as the crowd is not liking this one bit. Not that their opinion matters.
Zach Davis: But remember Shannan, if he walks out, he will be disqualified and still lose the WCF World Title here tonight.
Price slowly starts walking up the ramp as the referee is up to a count of four at this point. He realizes that if he’s disqualified, he will lose his title regardless. He quickly walks back and takes the title back to ringside and slides into the ring where Sarah Twilight is now slowly getting up.
Shannan Lerch: And I think Price just realized that yet AGAIN as he heads back into the ring here, Twilight recuperating as Price quickly acts to grab her by the neck and oh my, a DDT to Twilight here. He’s going to cover her!
Zach Davis: And Twilight kicks out yet again! Showing great heart and great resiliency, she’s taking everything the World Champion can muster and clearly, Price cannot beat her.
Shannan Lerch: Please, you don’t know that. Come on champ, calm down!
Price coming unhinged at this point not comprehending how Twilight is still in this match, he nearly starts pulling his hair out. He grabs a handful of Sarah's hair and pulls her to her feet only to be taken down by a perfect standing dropkick! Price tumbles down, shocked and he rolls himself back to his feet. He rushes at Sarah who takes him over with a powerslam. The crowd is on their feet yet AGAIN as they roar with excitement!
Zach Davis: This capacity crowd is firmly behind Sarah Twilight. They are here to witness history! They are here to see the first ever female World Champion crowned, and I think they just may get it!
Shannan Lerch: I...I just don't understand! She should be finished already! This is impossible!
Zach Davis: No Shannan, it is what everyone knew all along and that you and Eric are just finding out!
Sarah back to her feet and the crowd is going BONKERS. Price scrambles to get back to his feet, as he does, he receives a kick to the gut and Sarah hauls him up for a Sit down Tiger bomb. She stays with it for the cover.
Shannan Lerch: PHEW! Eric kicks out! That was close!
Zach Davis: Sarah Twilight is again taking it to the World Champion.
Eric rolls onto his stomach as he was a bit banged up and wanted to avoid another pinfall. A pinfall he avoids, however he does not avoid having his arms pulled back behind him and Sarah's boot planted on the back of his head.
Zach Davis: And a curbstomp! Smashing Eric's face into the canvas. Couldn't happen to a nicer guy.
Shannan Lerch: You are so hateful to our world champion.
Zach Davis: Well duh! And he isn't going to be champion much longer!
Shannan Lerch: Yes he will be!
Eric rolls himself near the corner, trying to get away. Sarah moves in after him again. Eric this time kicks away in desperation. Sarah is backed off for a moment and that is all that Eric needs, he pulls himself back up with the ropes and backs himself against the turnbuckle. Sarah rushes him immediately, but Eric pulls Stanly Moser in front of him and darts out of the way at the last second! Sarah tries to stop herself but she COLLIDES with the referee. Moser is down and out.
Zach Davis: Uh oh...this isn't good. I know how this goes.
Shannan Lerch: Eric has a chance here! Get her! Get her!
As Sarah turns around from the collision with the ref, Eric attempts the Reversal of Fortune! However, Sarah spins out of it and lands him with a flashback! Eric hits the canvas hard and sits up, moving his hands up to hold his head. Sarah drops down, wrapping her legs over his arms and pulling back and she presses her calves against the back of his neck.
Zach Davis: SPELLBOUND!
Shannan Lerch: NO! NO! NO!
Eric screams out in pain, struggling for a few moments. Sarah wrenches the hold, cinching it tighter. Eric screams and moans in pain, trying to continue fighting it but eventually he starts TAPPING! Eric Price is TAPPING OUT!
Zach Davis: Damn it there's no referee!
Shannan Lerch: Oh Thank God!
Sarah doesn't release the hold being as no one is there to signal the match having ended and she just continues to apply pressure to the hold. Eric is SCREAMING and the crowd is in a FRENZY.
Zach Davis: Eric Price damn near begging for his life and he will get NO REMORSE! There is no referee to stop it, there is no mercy. Eric Price getting EXACTLY what he deserves!
Shannan Lerch: He's already tapped, let him go! She can't win without a referee. Why do this? Because she is a cheater that's why!
Zach Davis: Nothing she is doing is against the rules! She is--hey wait a damn minute!
Shannan Lerch: Finally, justice!
The hold IS broken however as GRAVEDIGGER comes out of NOWHERE and KICKS Sarah in the head, causing her to release her grip. The crowd boos like MAD.
Zach Davis: AGAIN! AGAIN Eric's cohorts interfere! This is bullshit!
Shannan Lerch: All he's doing is stopping that ANIMAL from permanently injuring Eric!
Zach Davis: I have had enough of your nonsense! He's out here to cost her the match!
Gravedigger hauls Sarah to her feet and lifts her up...DEATH DRIVER into the canvas. The crowd is looking like they are ready to RIOT! Eric favors his shoulders a bit but manages to slide over into the cover while Digger heads over to the fallen Moser and shakes him almost violently to get him back to focus. Digger slides out from the ring as Moser adjusts his vision to see Eric covering Sarah.
Zach Davis: No, not like this again!
Shannan Lerch: What? He only did what was right for our world champion!
Sarah defiantly shoots a shoulder up! Eric turns PALE.
Zach Davis: YES! YES! She is still in this!
Shannan Lerch: WHAT?! HOW?! THIS IS UNREAL!
Zach Davis: Sarah Twilight will NOT stay down! THIS is why she is here competing in this match tonight! THIS is why this capacity crowd is rooting her on here tonight. THIS Shannan, is why Eric Price did NOT want ANY part of this match!!
Gravedigger climbs back into the ring behind Moser, who was still mostly out of it and couldn't tell everything that is going on and he STOMPS on him, putting him back out of commission. Digger hauls Sarah back to her feet and TOSSES her out to ringside. Eric is frantically trying to figure out what to do and Digger motions him to calm down as he slowly climbs outside to 'handle it.'
Shannan Lerch: What is he going to do?
Zach Davis: What else? Help Eric Price CHEAT!
Digger climbs out onto the apron and hops down from the ring. He has a smirk on his face as he slowly moves toward Sarah who is trying to make it back to her feet using the guardrail and time keeper's table. Digger approaches, and without warning, Sarah grabs hold of the ring bell and she CHUCKS IT AT HIM! It nails him RIGHT in the FACE and the hall of famer DROPS!
Crowd: HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT!
Zach Davis: DING! Haha! Lights out Gravedigger!
Shannan Lerch: That wasn't right! She hit him with a weapon!
Zach Davis: He shouldn't have been out here so all bets are OFF!
Eric is looking around in ALL directions in the ring, his jaw is agape as Sarah now turns her attention right back at him. Eric extends his arms out at his sides, looking back and forth for an escape route as Sarah slowly pulls herself up onto the apron, never once taking her eyes off of him. She steps into the ring, Eric makes a dash for it but he is GRABBED! The crowd is on their feet AGAIN!
Zach Davis: Nowhere to go!
Shannan Lerch: This isn't right! It just isn't right!
Sarah takes Eric by the back on the head and walks him to one of the turnbuckles as he continues to freak out. She SLAMS him FACE first into the turnbuckle pad as the crowd counts along in unison.
Crowd: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FIVE! SIX! SEVEN! EIGHT! NINE! ...
There is a pause as she pulls his head back farther and..
Zach Davis: And that was absolutely BEAUTIFUL!
Shannan Lerch: She could kill him and these idiots would enjoy it and cheer!
Zach Davis: Can you blame her? Look at the frame of mind she is in. This is when Sarah Twilight is the most dangerous. Eric Price COST her the Television Championship, and all of the heinous acts he has carried out? This is exactly what he needs!
Eric stumbles back from the turnbuckle and Sarah is there for a rebound suplex that dumps him on his head. However the crowd begins to boo yet AGAIN as Davey Ortega returns...this time with a referee's jersey on!
Zach Davis: What the hell is this?
Shannan Lerch: We needed a new official! He is doing a great service!
Zach Davis: Bullshit!
Davis rushes into the ring as Sarah garbs Eric to haul him to his feet again. Davey pulls Sarah away from him and she is ready to unload all the wrath and fury she can upon him but he pinches the jersey, exclaiming that he is the ref now. Sarah just ignores him and she goes back at Price...again Davey pulls her away. With the distraction, Eric has a small opening, despite being dazed himself and he starts hammering away at Sarah while Davey has her distracted. Of course, Ortega backs off once Eric is in control.
Zach Davis: OH COME ON!
Shannan Lerch: I think he is being very impartial.
Zach Davis: How the hell are they getting away with this crap?
Eric with some clubbing fists but then an elbow from Sarah, followed by a neckbreaker! Ortega is again in Sarah's face and this time sshe has had enough. She punches him right in the face! The crowd again roars as she sends him toppling oveer the ropes with a Royal Butterfly!
Zach Davis: And Ortega now taken out of the equation! Eric Price is all by himself!
Shannan Lerch: She can't place her hands on the official!
Zach Davis: Ortega is NOT the official!
Ortega is dumped over the top, but Eric sees his one opportunity and as Sarah turns back around he grabs her immediately...CA$HFLOW!!!! The crowd is BOOING like mad. Eric russhes to Stanley Moser and shakes him. The senior official is stirring and Eric drags him over near Sarah as he goes for the cover. Moser counts.
Zach Davis: DAMN IT HE STOLE ANOTHER ONE!
THE CROWD ERUPTS! Sarah AGAIN shoots her shoulders off the mat and Eric is damn near CRYING.
Shannan Lerch: WHAT?!! NO! NO WAY! NO!
Eric looks at Moser and places his hands together like he is praying.
Eric Price: No it has to be three! It has to be! PLEASE! IT HAS TO BE!
Zach Davis: Eric Price CANNOT put Sarah away. No matter what he has tried. She wants that World Championship THAT badly. She is not going to quit! Eric is BESIDE HIMSELF!
Shannan Lerch: I cannot...CANNOT BELIEVE what I am seeing!
Eric is pleading still, but Moser reaffirms his stance that it was only a two count. Eric loses it, he paces back and forth, looking down at Sarah.
Eric Price: WHY? WHY WON'T YOU STAY DOWN?!
He tugs at his hair and tries to think, think of anything he can do. Finally, an idea clicks. He walks over behind Stanley Moser and STOMPS the senior ref again. He looks around frantically and then...he sees Ortega coming to. He calls out to him with an insane urgency. Ortega slowly starts pulling himself up on the apron.
Zach Davis: Oh what the hell is this?
Shannan Lerch: It looks like Ortega's services are needed again. The ref got hurt.
Zach Davis: Eric knocked him out!
Eric Price turns Sarah over for a sharpshooter and doesn't even have the hold locked in yet before Davey Ortega is screaming at the timekeeper, demanding for the bell to be rung. The crowd is about to RIOT!
Zach Davis: No! What the hell kind of crap is he pulling? Davey Ortega is NOT the official for this match!
Shannan Lerch: He is right now.
The bell is rung.
Kyle Steel: (reluctantly) The winner of this match and STILL your WCF World Heavyweight Champion...ERIC PRICE!
Davey grabs the World Championship from the timekeeper and hands it to Eric as the two get the hell out of there FAST. Sarah sits up in the ring, GLARING at Kyle Steel as to what the hell just happened.
Zach Davis: Eric Price should be STRIPPED of that belt! Ortega was banned from being out here! This is bullshit! Sarah Twilight never gave up!
Shannan Lerch: You don't know, she might have?
Zach Davis: Wake up to reality, Shannan! No, just no! Eric Price with another screwjob. He knew he couldn't beat Sarah, so he has his cronies help him win yet AGAIN. I am sick! Sick to my stomach, we'll see you at Slam.
The crowd starts throwing garbage as a VERY PISSED OFF Sarah Twilight storms her way toward the back, looking for Price and Ortega. We fade out.
