WTF Is Going On Around Here? by Death By Stereo hits and the fans from Mexico city begin cheering as the first WCF show to take place outside of Pennsylvania in forever comes on the air! We go to Zach Davis and Shannan Lerch.
Zach Davis: WELCOME TO ASESINATO DE MAYO! A historic night tonight, to be sure.
Shannan Lerch: That's right! My former love Logan goes one on one with my current crush except that he put my brother in jail Jonny Fly, with the winner getting my hand in marriage.
Zach Davis: Um, no, this actually has nothing to do with you at all. It does, however, have everything to do with your brother, which you subtly alluded to. Jonny Fly is responsible for putting Seth Lerch, of the ToT, into jail. Although somehow Bobby Cairo became in charge of WCF in Seth's absence.
Shannan Lerch: How the hell did that happen, anyway? Seth promised he hired lawyers to make sure random crap like this didn't happen. I bet when Seth does get back here he'll have to fight for control of his company again. SIGH.
Zach Davis: Everyone knows Bobby Cairo does all the work around here, anyway. But getting back to the World Title, Seth reappeared just long enough to grant Logan a World Title shot. Logan is WCF's ultimate x factor-
Shannan Lerch: As well as X-Man-
Zach Davis: ...and Logan either brings it full force, or flakes out. We'll see what tonight brings. Logan is the most decorated superstar in WCF history, bar none. For all the Tortures, Gravediggers and Slickie Ts, all the Skyler Strikers and PC Cradles, the Johnny Rebs and Greenfevers... Logan has more accomplishments than any of them, and he's been here since the beginning. He is truly Mr. WCF.
Shannan Lerch: Of course, he's also suffered his share of defeats. Not so of Mr. Jonny Fly. He is virtually unbeatable, and while he may not quite have the pedigree of Logan... give him ten years, and he'll have Logan completely unclassed, while Logan will be merely a footnote in history. That is, unless Logan wins tonight, in which case I take it all back.
Zach Davis: Moving on, tonight has the long anticipated finals of the WCF Trios Cup Tournament. The tournament was announced months ago, and then finally kicked off. Two teams have made it to the finals. Better Than You, consisting of Gravedigger, Sarah Twilight, and Ayria Adams... and the Big Dick Superstars, Johnny Reb, Chad Evans, and Kira Sakazaki.
Shannan Lerch: Whoever makes the deciding pinfall or submission will receive a World Title shot, while the other members of the winning team are supposed to get Tag Titles shots. Which could get confusing if Better Than You wins, but we'll see, I suppose.
Zach Davis: This isn't just a tournament final match. This is deeply personal. Gravedigger, as Hector Rodriguez, defeated Chad Evans for the WCF World Title, injuring Evans and causing his departure from WCF. It is fitting that they'll meet in the ring tonight, all these months later. Evans will surely be out for blood.
Shannan Lerch: Before FPV's supposed death, he was being brutally attacked by IT, Oblivion. After that whole debacle, it was revealed that FPV secretly went to Dr. Heill to get his Super FPV persona taken care of. Well, those two events lead to tonight's match. In Dr. Heill's basement, FPV and the monster IT will go one on one.
Zach Davis: Quite frankly, we should probably nuke that whole area by orbit and take them all out, but yeah. We also have a Hardcore Hell match, though the Hardcore Title isn't on the line for some reason.
Shannan Lerch: The brutal feud between Waylon Cash and Gein Spector heats up. A feud that has been ongoing since both men entered this company. The Hardcore Hell match was Cash's idea, and well.. maybe we'll have a REAL death tonight. Cages, weapons, oh my.
Zach Davis: Cash is in a bizarre predicament. If he brutally puts an end to Spector, well good for him. But it almost proves Spector right, that Cash is a brutal psychopath that will attempt to kill.... we'll see how it goes.
Shannan Lerch: The Television Title reign of Nathan von Liebert came to an end as he was defeated by rookie upstart Steve Orbit. Well, tonight is NvL's chance to get back on the gold train-
Zach Davis: Gold train?
Shannan Lerch: ...to win back some gold, as he's facing Kid Phantasm for the People's Title. Phantasm, to his credit, defeated the seemingly unbeatable Switchfever for that belt. This should be a good one.
Zach Davis: We have a career versus career match, which has also become a lumberjack match. Tek attempts to end the legend of Steeltoe Joe. Joe was able to defeat Tek last month, but now both mens careers are on the line.
Shannan Lerch: We have a big Last Man Standing match between Eric Price and Nic Daniels. Price was able to screw Daniels out of the match last week by having the ref ring the bell and screw Daniels, but in a Last Man Standing match, there will be no screwing. One of these guys are gonna be knocked the F out.
Zach Davis: In honor of the Trios Cup, we have three triple threat Title matches. Benjamin Atreyu defends his US Title against Jeff Purse and Hunter Valentyne, Orbit defends the TV Title against Al Envy and Hank Lane, and Odin Balfore defends the Internet Title against Johnny Stylez and Zombie McMorris.
Shannan Lerch: Look at that! The Business has a chance to walk out of this PPV with THREE singles belts. That would put them on the map for sure. If they're still even speaking to each other, it seems like maybe they're not.
Zach Davis: Also, the Business' Ryan Elias has a chance to win a contendership to a Title, either the US, TV, Hardcore, Internet, or People's. He's in a Triple Threat with Doc Henry and Famine of the Vile.
Shannan Lerch: Famine's ongoing feud with Sarah Twilight has been put on hold as he's been banned from interfering with the Trios Cup. Though after tonight, that ban is off... dun dun dun.
Zach Davis: Adam Young, who has been feuding via a war of words with Corey Black, has a mystery opponent. By all accounts, it will NOT be Corey Black, as Black's request for a Loser Leaves WCF match has been denied. But you never know, I suppose.
Shannan Lerch: GOD, I hope not. If it IS Corey, I'll personally interfere to make sure he loses.
Zach Davis: Two men are debuting! Tommy Kain and Trystan Tyler. We'll see what they're made of.
Shannan Lerch: And lastly, especially for our Mexico audience, we have an International Title match. The belt has been retired for quite some time now, and hasn't been defended since it was renamed the Elite Title in 2004. Eight years later, the Title is back.
Zach Davis: Apathy, Kira Sakazaki, Joel Hall, Mickey Fandango, and Anibal all get a chance to win this prestigious match. Let's start the show!
Backstage, in the BDS locker room, Chad Evans, Johnny Reb, and Kira Sakazaki are deep in discussion. Kira’s sister, Haruna is also there, listening quietly; Haruna shoots Johnny a look filled with suspicion, but turns away before he notices.
Johnny Reb: Listen, Kira. You’re gonna be fine out there. Those guys ain’t competition – they’re a warm-up. Just save a little somethin’ for our match against Gravedigger, Twilight an’ Adams.
Sakazaki turns his head to one side, then the other; a resounding *pop* echoes through the locker room, and he smirks.
Kira Sakazaki: Don’t worry about me, Reb-sama. I can handle this. I’ve got this one – how do you say it? – under the bag?
Chad Evans: In the bag. And yes, you do. But don’t get cocky.
The Inveterate One is distracted by an urgent beep from his mobile phone, as Chad and Kira continue to discuss the International Title. He flips it open to reveal a text message that reads only “They’re coming.” Tucking the phone back in his pocket, he stands abruptly and heads for the door, drawing questioning stares from everyone else.
Johnny Reb: I, uh… left the oven on at home! Gonna go take care of that. I’ll be back before ya know it! Hey – what the hell?
Reb rises from his seat and rushes out of the locker room – or tries to, anyway.
Ryo Minegishi: hey, buddy. I came here to.... whoa, whoa, whoa.... where are you going, mister?
Minegishi appears and prevents Reb from leaving. Sakazaki watches him, a thoughtful expression on his face. He glances to his sister, who shakes her head, eyes wide. They exchange a series of looks, a silent conversation; it’s clear he wants her to do something, and she is unwilling, perhaps even a little fearful. Chad watches the interplay, puzzled, while Johnny seems annoyed at the delay.
Johnny Reb: Ain’t none of your business, Minegishi-kun!
Kira Sakazaki: umm.... please don't go, Reb-sama. There’s something strange about you.
Chad Evans: Wait. What’s going on?
Kira Sakazaki: Have you failed to notice that there is something …not quite right about Reb-sama?
Our beloved – if somewhat troubled – Chad Dogg frowns, starts to shake his head, and then stops, giving Johnny a speculative once-over. The Inveterate Confederate shifts uncomfortably under their collective scrutiny.
Chad Evans: Well, now that you mention it…
Johnny Reb: Oh, come on, y’all. It’s me. Same ol’ Johnny I always been.
Kira Sakazaki: Well, I actually think that you are not different. Sado just....
Chad Evans: No, Kira! Sado was right. I smell a rat here.
Johnny Reb: What are y’all talkin’ about?
Chad Evans: Maybe Kira's hot little sister can see inside your head. Let her take a look.
Johnny Reb: Take a look at what? My second most prodigious talent? She can look at that any time. All ya ever had to do was ask, honey.
He gives the young woman a halfhearted leer. Kira grits his teeth to restrain a sudden fury – he won’t waste that on Johnny, not with two matches scheduled. Exercising the sort of control only a young man with an unbelievably hot sister can manage, he chooses his next words carefully.
Kira Sakazaki: Ah, yes! Torigoya can read people’s minds. Their…essence. Let her see.
Johnny is hesitant, but it’s pretty obvious he’s not getting out of this. Everyone is gazing at him expectantly. He shrugs, as if unconcerned, though he knows his whole plan could go to hell if the truth of his identity is discovered.
Haruna Sakazaki: Aniki, Dame! Sado-san ga.... atta yo ne? (Brother, no! did Sado gives you permission?)
Kira Sakazaki: well, I hate to do this but this time we really need you. Your power will be used for a good sake. I’m sure you'll be fine if you use your power for a good thing. Please, Torigoya! Help us!
Haruna Sakazaki: Demo.... (but....)
She looks to her brother for help, but he may as well be carved from stone. His jaw is set, his gaze intent on Johnny Reb. Haruna sighs and relents.
Haruna Sakazaki: Wakarimasu yo ne, Aniki! anata no tame ni! (All right, brother. For you.)
Chad Evans: What did she say? Did she agree?
Kira Sakazaki: y-yes.... but I’m not sure Torigoya will be fine. Sado said that she doesn't use her power with any purpose.
Chad Evans: Your girlfriend is a Yankee Gang Leader. Maybe she said that to protect Haruna in case some rival gang tries to threaten her, or use her to their own advantage.
Kira Sakazaki: okay.... I give you a permission to do this. But if something happened to her, you should responsible for anything!
Chad Evans: All right. Fine.
Kira Sakazaki: Well, Torigoya! he's all yours!
The young woman stands and walks to Johnny, extending one hand as if to touch his head, though she never makes physical contact. Eyes closed in concentration, she reaches out with other senses, testing, probing. Seconds stretch into near infinity in the quiet room. Reb tries to back up, but he’s already pressed against the cold steel of the locker room door. All at once, the girl gives a startled gasp; her eyes fly open with a wild look, like a panicked deer.
Haruna Sakazaki: Mi..... Mieta! Mi....e....ta..... yo!! (S-Saw it! I... can.... saw.... it!!)
Kira Sakazaki: Torigoya!!!
She takes two paces backward and collapses into Kira’s arms. Ryo rushes to her side and try to help his best friend's sister, allowing the Inveterate One to finally make his escape. Evans watches him go, a deep frown creasing his brow.
Ryo Minegishi: Kira, what the hell happened here? could you please explain to me?
The haunting guitar riffs of Cold's Confession drift through the arena as the Femme ICON makes her way out onto the stage and down the ramp amidst the chorus of boos and jeers. She saunters her way down, slides into the ring and goes to the far corner, climbing the turn buckle, raising both arms into the air, egging the crowd on.
Zach Davis: This is the first chance tonight for The Business to make a splash; could Apathy bring the International Title to the stable?
Shannan Lerch: Maybe!
"In your position, SET!!!"
Beginner by VSK hits and BOOM!!! Pyro explodes....
Kyle Steel: Introducing from Akihabara, Japan accompanied by Haruna Sakazaki, weighing in at 199 lbs. Kira Sakazaki!!!
Kira comes to the arena and walking as usual. In the middle of ramp he do his signature greeting. Kira enters the ring. Kira climb 2nd TB and do the raise hand taunt.
Zach Davis: Here is Kira Sakazaki. Some have said it is Kira's destiny to win the International Title.
Shannan Lerch: Remember, this is only Kira's first match tonight... VERY important match for Sakazaki.
The arena goes dark. Suddenly, a voice can be heard.
"From the depths of hell, where the shadows lurk, we are the deceived. The place you have witnessed in is all a lie. World order by day has been taken over. Victims of corruption have overpowered the sunlight. But now as the moon rises, it will be our time to strike. Xtreme Fear will save us all. We will rule the night."
Silence for 10 seconds. Suddenly, We Will Rule The Night by Sonic Syndicate is played through the arena. The crowd cheers as the intro of the song is played.
Pyro is blasted on stage, which causes the lights to come back on. Out from backstage, Joel Hall comes out. He is wearing a black trenchcoat and a random hockey mask. He looks around the arena.
"My home is no longer a place where refuge can be found
Joel walks down the ramp and looks straight ahead at the ring. He stops and looks back at the stage.
"I'm far from all I know
Then, Joel jumps on the canvas and rolls over the ropes, entering the ring. He takes his mask off and throws it into the crowd. He goes onto each turnbuckle and looks at the crowd.
"Until the end of time we are slaves to the dark
At the final turnbuckle, after looking at the crowd, he raises his right arm with a devil horns sign. He gets off and takes his trenchcoat off. He does some stretches while he waits for his opponents.
Zach Davis: And here is Joel Hall, formerly known as El Mideo Extremo!
"Hello Hangover" by Jaya the Cat plays, and Mickey Fandango steps out from the back. He walks to the ring, all business tonight.
Shannan Lerch: Mickey Fandango hasn't had the luckiest stay here in WCF, but that could all change here tonight.
A generic rock instrumental with an aggressive drum beat and guitar rift hit the speakers as "La Máquina de Muerte" Aníbal walks out onto the stage, Felipe flanking close behind him with a cigar in his mouth. Aníbal measures up the crowd from the stage before heading down the ramp and climbing up onto the ring apron as Felipe takes a spot at ringside. He then steps over the top rope and walks out to the center of the ring where he waits for the match to start.
Zach Davis: The crowd is chanting "Anibal!," he's a fan favorite here in Mexico tonight.
The five competitors are in the ring, with Anibal in the center. Kyle Steel holds up the International Title. The bell sounds, and the four competitors in the corner all run towards Anibal and begin beating him down.
Shannan Lerch: So much for the hometown advantage...
Apathy hits him with a Yakuza Kick, sending him spinning into Joel Hall, who spits mist into his face! Rubbing at his eyes, Anibal stumbles into Mickey Fandango, who Dropkicks him. Anibal is sent sprawling back into Kira Sakazaki, who hits him with a Shining Wizard!
Zach Davis: .....oof.
Anibal rolls out of the ring, holding his head in pain. After that, chaos erupts as Apathy hits Hall with a Lariat, and Sakazaki hits Fandango with a Drilling Dropkick! Apathy stomps at Hall as Sakazaki stomps at Fandango.
Shannan Lerch: One of these competitors will win the International Title, newly restored, and non-Elite now.
After a few stomps, Apathy and Sakazaki meet face to face in the middle of the ring. Apathy hits Sakazaki with a stiff slap to the chest, and Sakazaki responds with a stiff kick to Apathy's leg. Apathy hits Sakazaki with another slap, Sakazaki responds with another kick. Apathy goes for another slap but Sakazaki sidesteps it and hits Apathy with a Handpalm Punch! Apathy stumbles away and Sakazaki follows up with a Judo Hipthrow! Kira pins Apathy.
No, Apathy powers out of it!
Zach Davis: Wow! Geez.
Hall is up, and he runs and hits both Sakazaki and Apathy with a Double Clothesline, sending them both down. Both of them stumble up and Hall grabs both their heads and DDTs them both at once!
Zach Davis: OOF!
Hall stands and turns, and is face to face with Mickey Fandango. They begin trading blows, lefts and rights flying everywhere. Hall gets the advantage after several moments and sends Fandango into the ropes. Hall throws him across the ring, Fandango bounces and comes back, ducking a Clothesline, then coming back and Bulldogging Hall to the mat!
Shannan Lerch: Mickey Fandango from England, now in the driver's seat!
Fandango stomps at all three competitors currently in the ring, but Apathy has worked her way up. She blocks a shot from him and lifts him up in a Vertical Suplex, but brings him down with a Falcon Arrow into pin!
Zach Davis: This could be it!
No! Fandango kicks out!
Shannan Lerch: So close!
Zach Davis: Just for history's sake, the International Title was last held by Jay Price, when it was the Elite Title. The International Title before the renaming was last held by Logan of all people, when he and the ToT basically stole it from Epic back in 2003, almost a decade ago. Other men to have held the belt are Mike D and Mike Kaos. Jason Tilley held the belt when it was the Elite Title.
Shannan Lerch: Wow, someone has done his research!
Apathy picks Fandango up and tosses him out of the ring. Sakazaki and Hall are up, the three competitors begin brawling with each other in the middle of the ring!
Zach Davis: We should have subtitled this match International Incident or something. Apathy hails from France, Sakazaki from Japan, and Hall from Malaysia.
Shannan Lerch: Joel Hall isn't from Malaysia!
Zach Davis: Oh...... yeah....... well...... shut up.......
Joel Hall is shoved into the referee, causing a ref bump.
Shannan Lerch: Well this isn't good.
Meanwhile, Sakazaki Clotheslines Apathy over the top rope, sending her to the outside. Hall runs at Sakazaki, but Kira kicks him, backs up, runs and hits a Russian Legsweep!
Zach Davis: Path of the Moon!
Kira pins Joel Hall!
But of course, ref bump, and all.
Shannan Lerch: Wake up, ref!
Kira gets up and tries to wake the ref up. But Apathy gets back in the ring, spins him around and hits a Death Valley Backbreaker!
Zach Davis: Dynasty Queen Driver!
Apathy pins Kira as the ref comes to.
NO! Kira kicks out!
Shannan Lerch: SO CLOSE! Wow!
Joel Hall grabs Apathy from behind and throws her to the ropes. He climbs up with her and hits an Underhook DDT from the top!
Zach Davis: Falling Star!
Hall throws his arm over Apathy.
Fandango is in the ring and kicks Hall off!
Shannan Lerch: What a match!
Fandango picks Hall up and hits him with a Sidewalk Slam into pin!
Anibal of all people kicks Fandango off!
Zach Davis: Oh yeah...
Anibal picks Fandango up and hits him with a Double Underhook Backbreaker! Fandango rolls out and Apathy grabs Anibal, hitting a Uranage Spinebomb!
Shannan Lerch: So many huge impactful moves, ouch.
Hall dives, Clotheslining Apathy out of the ring. Both of them go flying out. Anibal has stumbled up, and Kira Sakazaki runs at him.. and hits the GAKURAN PUNCH!
Zach Davis: Is this it!?
Shannan Lerch: And there you have it!
Kira's music plays as he's handed the International Title, his first taste of WCF gold.
Zach Davis: Could this be the first victory for Kira here tonight?
Haruna Sakazaki joins Kira in the ring, hugging him. Kira hugs her back. He raises the International Title high in the air ... until he's attacked from behind.
Shannan Lerch: What the-
Doc Henry is in the ring! He's just hit Kira Sakazaki in the back of his head with his Confederate Title.
Zach Davis: OH COME ON. We know Doc wanted in the match, as the Confederate Representative or some crap... why is he taking this beautiful moment away from Kira, though?
Kira goes down. Henry stomps him a few times before holding the Confederate Title up to a chorus of boos.
Shannan Lerch: Well, things were going good for Kira and the Big Dick Superstars up until now... hm.
Henry eventually leaves while medics check on Kira.
“Say It To My Face” by Downstait blares throughout the arena’s PA system. Smoke fills the stage as well as blue strobe lights flicker through the smoke. Then all of a sudden we see none other than “The Human Highlight” Trystan Tyler running out from underneath the titan-tron. The crowd’s boo’s are as almost as loud as the music. Trystan looks through the crowd shaking his head at them with a smirky little smile as he walks down the ramp. He makes his way to the ring and he jumps upon the apron and when he does, blue pyro shoots out of the turnbuckles. He then jumps over the top rope and he walks to the corner, hops up and spreads his arms out(Think AJ Styles).
"Still Counting" by Volbeat hits the PA. Tommy Kain makes his way down to the ring with a signature bottle of Evan Williams (Because Jack Daniels is for rednecks.) He gives the crowd a smirk that just screams, "Damn I know I'm better than you." Finally making his way to the ring, sliding under the bottom rope and sitting in one of the corners taking a drink or two from his pre-match bottle of booze.
Zach Davis: Tommy Kain is starting his WCF career off the right way, with a drink of smooth Kentucky bourbon.
Shannan Lerch: Both of these men would like to start off their careers with a big pay-per-view victory.
Zach Davis: What's this? Hey look up on the big screen. It's interim WCF president Bobby Cairo!
The Mexican crowd cheers Cairo's appearance on the screen. He's wearing a dapper-looking suit and appears to be backstage somewhere, perhaps in his office or perhaps in the women's locker room.
Bobby Cairo: Tommy Kain! Trystan Tyler! How are you guys doing?
Kain and Tyler both appear perplexed by this sudden intrusion.
Bobby Cairo: You guys are brand new to WCF. You got a lot at stake in your debut match. We're going to raise the stakes even higher and make things real interesting. I'm putting up fifteen-thousand dollars of my own money to the winner of tonight's match.
Zach Davis: Fifteen grand! Not bad for one night's work!
Shannan Lerch: Kain and Tyler certainly seem to like it, based on their smiles.
Bobby Cairo: That's not all though. The winner will also get a brand new Cadillac car! And if that weren't enough, the winner will get a harem of Mexican mamacitas from Bobby Cairo's personal stash!
The camera pans to show a dozen large-breasted Mexican women wearing very little clothing. The crowd pops like crazy for tits and ass.
Zach Davis: Wow! What an opportunity for these two debuting superstars! Holy crap, I have an erection!
Shannan Lerch: You back on the blue pill, Zachy?
Kain attacks Tyler from behind with clubbing blows to the back of the head, not even waiting for referee Zip Wingdinger to call for the bell. Zip tries to separate the two but Kain shoves him away and Irish whips Tyler into the ropes. Tyler ducks a clothesline by Kain and snaps off a dropkick to Kain's face. Finally the ref is able to intervene and get the two men separated long enough to call for the bell.
They lock up at mid-ring and Tyler gets the advantage into a headlock. Kain shoves him off into the ropes, drops to the mat and then takes Tyler down with a smooth drop-toe-hold. Kain quickly follows with elbows to the back of Tyler's head. Tyler protests to the referee, but to no avail. Tyler gets to his feet and Kain is on him like glue with hard punches to the body. Kain measures Tyler and tries for a spinning backfist, but Tyler ducks and hits a toe kick to the midsection. With Kain doubled over, Tyler plants him with a DDT. Kain is floored and Tyler keeps on him with hard stomps to the chest.
Zach Davis: Back and forth match so far. Kain had the edge, but now Tyler is getting in some shots.
Shannan Lerch: It's obvious that both men understand the importance of a quick start. You can't wait for the match to come to you, you have to be aggressive like with a woman.
Zach Davis: And we know that both men want those Mexican mamacitas. Hell, my dick is still hard.
Tyler whips Kain into the ropes and tries for a Frankensteiner, but Kain blocks it, flips Tyler onto his shoulders and lays him out with a Partycrasher (TKO). Kain goes for the cover, but Tyler is alert enough to roll out to the floor to regroup. Rather than follow Tyler, Kain shoots off the far ropes, builds up a head of steam and goes airborne with a suicide dive. Kain's impact drives both Tyler and himself into the security barrier at ringside, with Tyler taking the brunt of the blow.
Zach Davis: Great move by Kain! He took a big risk, but it paid off that time! Tyler looks to be favoring his ribs as he returns to his feet, and makes his way back to the ring!
Shannan Lerch: Not so fast, Zach. Kain just spun Tyler around--but, no! Tyler laid him out with a Tryst of Fate on the floor!
Zach Davis: Kain looks like he's out cold! He's dead weight as Tyler is trying to drag him back to the ring, and with sore ribs to boot!
Tyler barely beats the ref's count, getting both himself and his opponent into the ring. Once in the ring, Tyler makes the pin attempt.
Zip Wingdinger: ONE...
THR-NO!!! FOOT ON THE ROPE!!!
Zach Davis: That extra time that Kain had to recover made the difference there.
Shannan Lerch: You may be right, Zach. If Tyler had hit that move inside the ring, he might have had the three, but great veteran awareness by Kain to get his foot on the rope. He might be a newcomer to WCF, but he's no rookie to this sport.
Tyler pulls Kain up to his knees, but then Kain surprises him with a shove into the corner, Tyler landing with a face-first turnbuckle smash. Kain gets to his feet and hits some hard forearm smashes to the chest and face. Finally Kain lifts Tyler and drops him throat first across the top rope with a Tommy Gun.
Zach Davis: That type of move can break a man's neck!
Shannan Lerch: Or at least give him a nasty case of rope burn.
Zach Davis: You would know all about burning sensations, Shannan.
Kain shows off a ferocity rarely seen by man nor beast as he chokes Tyler in the ropes, drawing a warning from Wingdinger. Kain breaks the hold long enough to take another drink of Evan Williams and then returns to his assault with a Roaring Elbow that nearly decapitates Tyler. The impact leaves Tyler strung between the top and middle rope and Kain gets an idea. Kain climbs to the top rope and hits a guillotine legdrop that flips Tyler's body into the air before he lands on the ring apron with violent impact.
Zach Davis: Oh man, Tyler just got planted right on his head on the apron. He's gotta be in dreamland right about now.
Shannan Lerch: Creative offense by Kain and he's dragging Tyler into the middle of the ring to make the cover. He could have him!
Zip Wingdinger: ONE...
THR--NO!!! KICK OUT!!!
Kain waits for Tyler to get to his knees and then goes for a Shining Wizard, but Tyler ducks and rolls out of harm's way. This surprises Kain, who turns to face Tyler and gets cracked in the head with an enzuigiri. Tyler follows with a Snap Suplex, then another Snap Suplex, and another Snap Suplex.
Zach Davis: Tres Amigos by Trystan Tyler! Shades of the late, great Eddie G!
Shannan Lerch: Tyler looks like he's ready to end it! He's going high risk!
Tyler climbs to the top turnbuckle and flips off with a Shooting Star Press. Kain rolls out of the way, but Tyler shows deft agility by landing on his feet. Kain tries to punch Tyler, but Tyler catches the punch, counters with a stiff knee that lands just above the belt, and whips Kain into the ropes. Kain rebounds and Tyler hits a Frankensteiner into a pin.
Zip Wingdinger: ONE...
THRE--NO!!! KICK OUT!!!
Zach Davis: Impressive all-around athleticism by Trystan Tyler! He's like an acrobat in the ring, and he nearly scored the pin!
Shannan Lerch: He's nicknamed "The Human Highlight", Zach!
Zach Davis: And he's showing why!
Tyler grabs Kain by the legs and tries to turn him over into a Boston Crab, but Kain resists and blocks the move. Tyler reverses his leverage and flips Kain into the turnbuckles with a catapult. Kain stumbles out of the corner into the waiting arms of Tyler. Tyler flips Kain into the air with a release German suplex and Kain shows some impressive agility of his own by landing on his feet.
Zach Davis: Kain's no slouch in his own right! How many men could land on their feet after being thrown with a powerful suplex like that?
Shannan Lerch: Both of these guys are showing a lot of heart in their WCF debut. They realize what's at stake in this match.
Zach Davis: Yeah, fifteen grand, a new caddy, and a whole lotta Mexican vajayjay.
They square off at mid-ring where Tyler gets the advantage and goes for a Tryst of Fate. Kain slips out of Tyler's grip, spins him around and hits a Flip Piledriver.
Zach Davis: Hoosier Hangover by Tommy Kain!
Shannan Lerch: That's not all though--he's going for more!
Kain lifts Tyler up with a double underhook and then plows him into the mat with a devastating piledriver. Tyler's body goes limp on the mat as Kain makes the cover.
Zip Wingdinger: ONE...
Shannan Lerch: Kain wins it with the TommyDriver, and he's gonna get laid tonight!
Zach Davis: My, my, my, look at all those fine Mexican honeys shaking their asses on the way down to the ring!
The dozen booby bikini babes saunter into the ring and smother the victorious Tommy Kain with their sex vibes. Kain gets himself a couple handfuls of breasts for starters, and then motorboats a particularly well-endowed mamacita. Of course, that's not all that Kain has won for his efforts.
Zach Davis: Kain just reached into that woman's panties and pulled out a set of car keys and fifteen thou in greenbacks!
Shannan Lerch: And now he's fingering her! This guy is smooth! I like him!
Shannan removes her headset and joins the celebration already in progress inside of the ring.
Zach Davis: CAMERAMEN CUT THE FEED GO TO COMMERCIAL DO SOMETHING WE CAN'T SHOW THIS ON TV AAHHH-
We come back from a promo for the next series of WCF action figures set to come out with a shot of Zach Davis and Shannan Lerch at the announce table.
Zach Davis: What a night we've had so far Shannan, and the action is only going to get better.
Shannan Lerch: How right you are Zach. We still have some great matches left on the....hold on a second. What's that? Okay, Zach I'm being told now that we have something going on in the back that needs our immediate attention. Do we have a cameraman on the scene? We do? Okay let's take a look and see what's happening?
We switch to the backstage area where Jay Price has just arrived at Arena Mexico, not looking the least bit pleased, and there's a noticeable pop from the Mexican crowd at the sight of Price. Hank Brown is right behind Price.
Hank Brown: Jay I'm telling you that you can't be here tonight. Seth put it out to security and everyone else that you weren't allowed to set foot in the building and if you tried, we were to escort you out.
Jay Price: Can it Brown, I don't give a crap what Lerch said. He's off making license plates at the moment, so his authority around here is nill. And as for security or anyone else that want's to try and escort me from this building, I'm begging them to try.
Hank Brown: Come on Jay don't do this. Just turn around and go back out to your car.
Price spins around and grabs Hank by the collar before shoving him against the wall. Price lifts Hank up to his tip toes and moves until the two are nose to nose.
Jay Price: Hank, I strongly suggest you get the fuck out of my business and go back to doing your job.
Price lets go of Hank's collar and Hank drops to the floor. Price turns and continues walking the hallway. When he's far enough away, Hank pulls out his cell phone and punches in a few numbers.
Hank Brown: He's here.
The cameraman catches up with Price in a different hallway, just outside of the door that reads "Seth Lerch".
Jay Price: Well then, I guess I found my dressing room for the night.
Price opens the door and walks in, only to find WCF.com reporter Scoops Callahan in the middle of an interview with Seth Lerch. Or rather, Seth Lerch via Skype on a laptop set up on the desk in front of Scoops.
Seth Lerch: Price? What are you doing in my office? What are you doing in Mexico? I told you to stay away from here.
Jay Price: Yeah, did you really expect me not to show up to the land of Tequila and burritos?
A rather nervous Scoops Callahan gets up and tries to make his exit when Price grabs him by the shoulder and sets him back down in his chair. Price walks around to the opposite side of the desk and takes a seat in the chair.
Seth Lerch: What's he doing? Spin me around so I can see.
Scoops does just that and Seth and Price are now facing each other. Seth goes to start speaking when Price reaches forward and lowers the volume to 0.
Jay Price: Now, now Seth, let's not ruin things by having to hear you talk. So Scoops, how you been?
Scoops Callahan: Uh...good.
Jay Price: Good, good.
Seth is fuming on the laptop screen as Price continues to ignore him.
Jay Price: Haven't seen you around in a while, whatcha been up to?
Scoops Callahan: Nothing really, just some personal stuff.
Jay Price: Oh right, personal stuff, gotcha.
Seth is all but throwing a temper tantrum on screen and, with a sigh, Price finally turns the volume back up.
Jay Price: Everything all right Sethy?
Seth Lerch: Look here you son of a bitch, I want you out of my office and out of my arena in the next five seconds or you're going to regret it.
Jay Price: Oh really? And what are you going to do Seth? Send me a vanity license plate with a dirty word on it? You're locked up, you can't do a damn thing to me. If I want to come into your office, which by the way I think it's hilarious that they even set up an office for you, and fuck your shit up, I'm going to do just that. In fact...
Price stands up, sliding off his suit jacket in the process. He picks up the laptop and hands it off to Scoops.
Jay Price: Here you go Scoops, play the part of the cameraman for me so Seth can get a front row seat.
Seth Lerch: Price don't you dare. I'm warning you.
Price begins to rip down everything on the walls that he can find. Framed pictures, fan drawn art, even a signed copy of Metallica's "The Black Album". Seth can be heard yelling obscenities in the background as Price destroys Seth's office, leaving nothing untouched. Price comes across a photo of Seth and Price, with Price holding the original burnt WCF World Title.
Jay Price: You remember this night Seth? The week after Gravedigger destroyed this title, you handed it to me and told the world that I was the future of this company. And now look at us, you're in jail and still finding ways to fuck me over.
Price drops the photo to the ground and smashes it with his foot.
Jay Price: I don't care what your personal agenda is Lerch, but you will not keep me from WCF. I am the god damn face of this company, not some no name that you can leave off a major international PPV.
Seth Lerch: I can do whatever the hell I want Price, this is my company. Locked up or not, I still call the shots.
Jay Price: Think whatever you want Seth, but the way I see it, you stopped having a say in what goes on around here the minute those cell doors closed.
Seth Lerch: Oh really? Is that what you think?
Jay Price: Yeah, it is.
The sound of someone clearing their throat can be heard off screen. Price spins around to find Doc Henry and Brian Banks, the former Captain Punishment, standing behind him.
Seth Lerch: Well I think it's about time your perspective of what's going on was changed Jay.
Banks and Doc take a step toward Price, who in response rips off his tie and dress shirt. An all out brawl ensues as Doc and Banks both rush Price at the same time. Punches are thrown in every direction as Scoops drops to his hands and knees and crawls out of the office. Seth looks on from the laptop, shouting out encouragement to Doc and Banks. Price is handling his own for the most part as he shoves Doc out of the way and goes punch for punch with Banks. Doc, however, decides to turn things up a notch as he grabs a bottle of Southern Comfort off a nearby shelf and smashes it over the back of Price's head. Liquor and glass go flying everywhere as Price drops to his knees. Banks quickly grabs Price by the head and spikes him to the ground with a ddt as Seth can be heard yelling out "Yes!".
Seth Lerch: Bring him over to the desk. I want to look him in the eyes when I tell him this.
Doc and Banks drag Price over to the desk and prop him up on his knees in front of the laptop screen.
Seth Lerch: Jay, I've been wanting to say something to you for a while now, and now seems like the best ti...
Price comes alive, throwing elbows into the midsections of both Doc and Banks. With blood dripping down the back of his head, he gets to his feet and takes turns throwing punches at both. Suddenly, from out of nowhere, Logan appears in the office and things quickly turn into a 3 on 1 assault. Banks gets in a few shots before he pushes him to Doc, who hits the Gambler's Hand. Doc then pulls Price to his feet and then steps out of the way as Banks hits the Superkick.
Logan/Doc Henry/Seth Lerch: BOOM! HEADSHOT!
Brian Banks: What?
Logan/Doc Henry/Seth Lerch: Err...WRONG GUY!
Price is out on the floor as Logan directs traffic, yelling for Banks and Doc to clear off the desk. Once that's done, Doc grabs the laptop and holds it in place so Seth can watch as Logan pulls Price to his feet and applies the sleeper hold.
Seth Lerch: Uh oh, looks like somebody got a ticket.
Seth breaks out in laughter as Logan hits the Connector, leaving Price in a heap on the ground.
Seth Lerch: Still not good enough. Take him out.
Logan nods his head and pulls the unconscious Price to his feet. It takes the help of Banks to get Price's limp body onto the desk and then Logan climbs up with him. With Seth looking on approvingly, Logan pulls Price up and sets him up for an old school piledriver.
Seth Lerch: Do it.
Logan hits it, destroying the desk in the process. All three men gather around Price's lifeless body, crumpled amongst the rubble that was the desk.
Seth Lerch: All right, set me down and get out of here.
Doc does just that, setting the laptop down so Seth can look into the slightly open eyes of Price. The three men then all leave together, pulling the door shut behind them.
Seth Lerch: Jay I know you can hear me right now. I just want you to know that what happened that night, when I had Rage attack Shannan and kill your unborn child...I'd do it all over again. I love my sister, and it pained me to know she was hurt, but I would never be able to live with myself knowing that my first nephew was the spawn of your seed. So this little crusade you've been on, trying to punish me for what I did and make me apologize for it, it's never going to end the way you want it. You can do or say whatever you want Jay, but in the end I will never be sorry for what happened.
A sickening smile comes over Seth's face as Price's eyes shut. The PPV fades out to a promo for next month's WCF Blast PPV as the laptop Seth was on powers down.
Zach Davis: Time for a very intriguing matchup. Who is going to be Adam Young's opponent tonight?
The arena goes black.
Voice: The true Villain is back!
"Bottom" by TOOL starts playing as a single white light hits the entrance. Boss steps out into the arena in a black pinstripe suit laughing. Smoke starts the fill the entranceway as "The Villain" Adam Young steps into the smoke. Fans begin chants of "BTJ" as they walk towards the ring. Woman in the crowd are throwing panties at him and Adam just shrugs it off. Boss climbs up on the ring apron and holds the ropes open for Adam. Adam walks over to the middle of the ring and removes his t-shirt and throws it into the crowd.
Shannan Lerch: And here he is. Very controversial figure in WCF, but he's a wily veteran of the company.
Chants of "COREY BLACK!" fill the arena. Adam Young looks around, annoyed.
Zach Davis: Corey vowed not to have another match in WCF until One, is he planning on breaking that vow just for Adam Young?
Young looks towards the entryway, waiting for it... when Blood And A Siren by Index Case hits.
Shannan Lerch: FUUUU-
Zach Davis: THIS HAS TO BE IT! IT HAS TO BE COREY BLACK!
Young grins, waiting for Corey to hit the ring. He wants the fight. The huge chants have gotten louder, and finally, CREEPING DEATH STEPS OUT FROM THE BACK!
Shannan Lerch: NOOO!... wait...
...except that it isn't the man we've known as Creeping Death; after a moment it is obvious. It is Cryboy McEmo, wearing Creeping Death facepaint.
Zach Davis: Ugh.
But of course, Adam Young doesn't show any indication that this isn't the real Corey Black. Cryboy heads to the ring and slides in as the bell rings.
Shannan Lerch: Creeping Death is going to get his ass kicked!
Zach Davis: You DO know that is actually Cryboy McEmo, right?
Shannan Lerch: Nope. That is Corey Black, I'd know him anywhere.
Zach Davis: Oh for pete's sake...
As Cryboy slides in, Young goes right on the attack, stomping on him repeatedly. The fans are booing loudly. Young lets "Creeping Death" stand and then throws him to the ropes, kicks him in the gut and hits his version of the Last Rites.
Shannan Lerch: The End!
But he doesn't end the match yet. He jumps up and hits the Best Moonsault Ever.
Zach Davis: Yeah yeah.. and there's the Thriller..
And he still isn't done. Lastly, he lets Creepingdeath McEmo stand one more time, kicks him again and hits the Angel's Wings.
Shannan Lerch: DAMNATION!!!!
And lastly, Young puts McEmo into his Messiah submission hold. McEmo taps instantly.
Zach Davis: Mercifully, this farce is over.
Young stands up and gets his arm raised as if he's just won the World Title. He grabs a mic.
Adam Young: There you go, Creeping Death! I never want to see you in my ring EVER AGAIN!
Young picks poor Cryboy McEmo up and throws him out of the ring as Bottom plays and Young leaves the ring.
Shannan Lerch: ADAM YOUNG HAS DEFEATED CREEPING DEATH HERE TONIGHT!
Zach Davis: He's never going to shut up about this...
The arena plunges into darkness as the opening instrumental begins to play. At the 20 second mark, the arena turns blue as a pyro explodes on the stage, Ryan Elias emerging through the smoke of the pyro. Wearing a large smile, he makes his way to the ring, occasionally stopping to flirt with the women at ringside, all the while making sure to show off his well formed physique.
Sliding under the bottom rope, Elias moves for the far corner. Mounting the middle ropes he places both hands on the back of his head, showing off his abs for the crowd and the camera. Finally he drops down and moves to the opposite corner, again assuming his pose before dropping off the corner and awaiting the beginning of the match.
The End of Heartache by Killswitch Engage begins to play as the lights in the arena begin to strobe. The entrance ramp fills with smoke as Famine makes his way out from the back. He walks forward and stops for a moment before continuing to walk down to the ring as the music continues to play. The crowd boos in unison as the Demon King continues to walk until he gets to the steel steps.
He walks up and enters the ring over the top rope. Once inside he looks around at the crowd who is still booing as the music dies down and he waits for his opponent.
Dr. Feelgood hits the speakers and as the main riff blasts through the arena, Doc, and Mary emerge on the stage, the Confederate Title around his waist. Looking around, he raises a fist in the air, then leads the way to the ring. Climbing up the steps, he holds the Ropes for Mary, who slinks lithely through. Doc steps trough the rooes and grins proudly as he pops the crowd drawing more boos as Mary takes the belt. Mocking them, he sits on the turnbuckle and awaits his opponents...
Zach Davis: The Confederate Champion attacked the new International Champion earlier tonight, and now he has a chance at winning this Contendership match.
Shannan Lerch: And this is the first of the many opportunities The Business has tonight!
The bell sounds. Famine of the Vile, vicious as ever, runs and attacks Elias, tackling him down. Henry, as cunning as ever, rolls out of the ring and decides to watch them from the outside.
Shannan Lerch: Oh Doc Henry...
Famine stomps on Elias repeatedly before picking him up and throwing him to the ropes. Famine then runs and hits a Clothesline From Hell.
Zach Davis: Oof!
Famine pins Elias, but Elias manages to kick out. Famine backs up, waiting for Elias to stumble up... then runs at him and hits a huge Spear!
Shannan Lerch: Damn!
Famine stands up, clearly feeling "in the zone," but he's met with a Flying Spear as Doc Henry flies off the turnbuckle!
Zach Davis: Damn! Doc Henry out of nowhere!
Henry pins Famine!
...The ref notices that Henry is holding Famine's tights and stops the count.
Shannan Lerch: Hah. Nice try, Doc.
Famine gets up, pissed. He throws Henry to the ropes and hits him with a Big Boot; Henry immediately rolls back out of the ring. Next, from out of nowhere, Elias rolls Famine up from behind!
Famine kicks out of this one and stands up, enraged. Elias gets up as well and gets a kick to the gut followed by a Jacknife Powerbomb!
Zach Davis: Huge Powerbomb by Famine! This could be it!
Famine pins Elias, hooking the leg.
Henry puts Elias' foot on the ropes from the outside; the ref stops the count again. Famine stands up and starts stomping mercilessly at Elias. He picks him up and grabs him by the throat, hitting a Two Handed Chokeslam right in the middle of the ring, pinning him once more!
...Doc kicks him off!
Shannan Lerch: Lots of nearfalls in this contendership match!
Zach Davis: The winner gets his choice of Title shots, any singles Title besides the World Title... this is an important one.
Doc picks Famine up quickly, using the element of surprise to his advantage, and hits the Gambler's Hand! He pins Famine, hooking the leg!
No! Famine gets out of it! Both men get to their feet and Doc ducks a Clothesline attempt, grabs Famine and goes for a German Suplex; Famine lands on his feet however and grapples Doc from behind, presumably going for his own German. Henry elbows Famine a few times and breaks out of it, switching behind Famine once more and executing another German, hitting it this time, and bridging for the pin!
NO! Famine escapes once more!
Zach Davis: Very exciting matchup thus far, so many nearfalls!
Shannan Lerch: Maybe if Famine manages to win here he'll get his mind off continuously attacking Sarah Twilight.
Henry puts Famine into a Chinlock. However, Famine slowly works his way to his feet, elbowing Henry once he's up, and breaks out of it. He grabs Henry and picks him up for a Vertical Suplex, but stalls, leaving Henry hanging in the air.
Zach Davis: All the blood is rushing to Henry's head, Famine is keeping him up there for quite a while now.
Finally, Famine drops Henry to the mat. Ryan Elias comes from behind, however, and hits Famine with several forearm shots to the back.
Shannan Lerch: Wait, what is Henry doing?
Doc has grabbed his Confederate Title and he slides into the ring. He runs and hits Ryan Elias in the back of the head with it!, causing Elias to go down, holding his head in pain.
Zach Davis: Aanndd there's the DQ, the match has been thrown out.
Famine rolls out and heads to the back. Henry stomps Elias several times, and none of his Business members come to help him...
Shannan Lerch: BUT HERE COMES KIRA SAKAZAKI!
Kira runs full speed to the ring, slides in, hits Henry in the head with his International Title, then heads right back out, running up the ramp!
Zach Davis: Kira didn't want to let this injustice continue, but he also didn't want to risk getting hurt for his Trios Cup match later tonight.
Henry stands up, holding his head and looking angrily towards the ramp.
Zach Davis: Well this should be a great matchup, Shannan - three men fighting it out for the Internet Championship.
Shannan Lerch: Has anyone pointed out yet that Kim Kardashian has 14 million followers on Twitter? She should be honorary Internet Champion.
Zach Davis: Has anyone pointed out yet that you're a moron, Shannan?
Shannan Lerch: You're just jealous 'cause I still haven't accepted your friend request on MySpace.
~*~ 4:19 ~*~
Cold by Crossfade plays over the loud speaker as out struts the Paragona of Americana , LA Johnny Stylez. Stylez moves with the rhythm of the music while yelling at the crowd. Naturally Stylez is met with a course of boos so loud that it almost shakes the arena. Stylez is dressed in a pair of baggy cargo pants and he is wearing a P.o.P T-shirt Outsiders style. On the front of the shirt is P.o.P in white bold letters with (Players of Perfection) written in captions. Stylez is wearing a pair of silver oakleys and he has a cigarette hanging from his lips. After dancing to his music and taunting the fans, Stylez makes his way down the ramp.
-What I Really Meant To Say-
Stylez arrogantly struts to the ring, stopping to blow smoke in the face of a few fans sitting front row. Stylez then puts his cigarette out, and slides in the ring on his stomach. He then shoots up and immeadily begins talking trash to the fans, who are letting him have it. Stylez walks up to the ring announcer and playfully slaps them over the head a few times, before walking over to the turnbuckle and laying across it pretending to fall asleep as he awaits his opponents.
Kyle Steel: The following contest is for the WCF INTERNET CHAMPIONSHIP! First, making his way to the ring at this time... weighing in at 245 pounds and hailing from New Orleans, Louisiana... 'LA' JOHNNY STYLEZ!
Zach Davis: And here we see Johnny Stylez, one half of Domestik Disturbance... this might be our first time seeing him in singles action, I believe. What do you make of this guy, Shannan?
Shannan Lerch: He looks like he's got a few too many baby mamas for me... but that's never stopped me before.
" Never Gonna Stop" by Rob Zombie blasts through the PA as Zombie McMorris makes his way onto the stage all pumped up. Hopping on the balls of his toes and shaking his arms out, Zombie rushes the ring as the music kicks up. Sliding into the ring he makes it across the ring, stepping on the bottom rope and points to the crowd before making his way to the corner turn buckle and pointing to them again and beating his chest in excitement.
Kyle Steel: Making his way to the ring at this time...weighing in at 260 pounds and hailing from New Orleans, Louisiana... he is a former WCF Internet Champion... ZOMBIE MCMORRIS!
Zach Davis: Zombie McMorris is hungry to get that gold back, and...
Shannan Lerch: He's starting early! Honey badger don't give a shit about rules or anything!
Zach Davis: I figured things might be a little vague rules-wise this week, being in Mexico, but... Zombie McMorris just walked right over to the 'snoozing' Johnny Stylez and started slamming his head into the turnbuckle... and now he's curb-stomping him like an angry punk kid!
“ With Oden On Our Side” Hit’s the PA system. The arena grows dark as the fans get to their feet to catch a glimpse of the stage.The fans stand and cheer an once the vocals starts, the arena lights flash back on and there stands Odin Balfore, centre stage. Odin stares down at the ring with a sinister grin as the fans sing along with the chorus.
Crowd: Futile to resist! You know we have come! Futile to resist... the battle is.. already won!
Crowd: Futile to resist! You know we have come! Futile to resist... the battle is.. already won!
The fans pop insanly right after as Odin begins to walk down the ramp at a slow an methodical pace. Once he gets to the foot of the ring, he steps up on it and looks around the arena again before steping over the ropes..
Crowd: Futile to resist! You know we have come! Futile to resist...
Odin cuts off the fans as he raises his hand in triumpt. Odin turns back to the ring as the fans finish their part.
Crowd: The battle is.. already won!
Kyle Steel: Weighing in at 340 pounds and hailing from Houston, Texas... he is the WCF INTERNET CHAMPION... THE NORDIC TANK, ODIN BALFORE!
Zach Davis: And Zombie just nailed Johnny Stylez with the Axe Wound (gutwrench powerbomb)! Odin better get in there and defend that belt, 'cause the Honey Badger's all over it!
Shannan Lerch: I know what that's like... trust me. Once's he's drank enough he's all over me like I was... Johnny Stylez.
Odin sees the match has started without him, and runs down to the ring to join his opponents in the fracas.
Zach Davis: Your banter is terrible today.
Shannan Lerch: Are you just not supposed to *drink* the water? Cause I think I got Montezuma's Yeast Infection.
Zombie whips Johnny Stylez at Odin, who gives him a big boot to the head, knocking him to the mat. Odin does the 'lift' taunt to the Mexican crowd, and they go nuts.
Zach Davis: And it looks like the Mexican nation wants Johnny Stylez all to themselves...
Shannan Lerch: Yeah, he's losing a kidney tonight.
Odin Balfore throws Johnny Stylez into the Mexican crowd. Zombie takes Odin out with a chop block to the leg as soon as he's thrown Stylez into the waiting arms of Mexico, then smashes Odin on the side of the head with a haymaker. Zombie heads out and up the ramp...
Zach Davis: Already an auspicious start to this match - we've got one competitor who's being crowdsurfed around the arena, and now Zombie McMorris is... leaving?
Shannan Lerch: Maybe he had to make a quick trip to 'la farmacia'...?
Zombie comes back with a golf cart full of weapons. The crowd goes crazy as he honks the golf cart's horn and it plays "La Cucaracha". Odin greets Zombie on the ramp by flipping the golf cart over, then picking it up and dropping it on him.
Zach Davis: And Odin Balfore continues to just power his way through this match! He just dropped that golf cart on Zombie like it was a sack of potatoes.
Odin rolls Zombie back into the ring. The large man goes up to the top rope...
Zach Davis: ODINSAULT? NO!
Zombie takes a large snort from something in his pocket and gets right up, barely dodging Odin's amazing moonsault.
Shannan Lerch: Yeah, I see he's already hit the 'farmacia' today... damnit. I was gonna see if he wanted to split something.
Zombie starts bouncing off the ropes like crazy, eventually catching Odin in the jaw with a 'Boot Party' (running punt). He goes for a quick cover.
Zach Davis: First pinfall attempt of the match! 1....2...no! Odin kicks out with some authority there, throwing Zombie off of him like a cheap hooker!
Shannan Lerch: Boy, have I been there...
Zombie goes out and digs through rubble of golf cart, pulling out an unbroken pinata. He holds it up and the crowd cheers... then responds by spitting Johnny Stylez back up. Stylez punches Zombie in the face, but Zombie just gives him a crazy look and slams the pinata over his head.
Zach Davis: Welcome back to the match, Johnny Stylez!
Shannan Lerch: Zombie McMorris has odd taste in hats, doesn't he?
Zombie picks up a chair and smashes the pinata with Stylez' head in it. Candy flies everywhere. Stylez hits the floor, then begins throwing pieces of broken pinata and candy at Zombie. Odin comes around the ring and catches Zombie in the face with thrown ring steps.
Zach Davis: We've got candy and papier-mache and steel flying all over the place!
Shannan Lerch: You think those are steel? This is Mexico, Zach... those steps might be made out of scrap aluminum for all we know.
Stylez picks up the chair and charges Odin, smashing him in the back with a chair. Odin turns, kicks him in the gut and powerbombs him onto the ring steps.
Zach Davis: Holy crap! That would've bent aluminum... and broken a lesser man! Johnny Stylez just will not quit on this match, Shannan.
Shannan Lerch: I'm telling you, he can't quit. He's gotta have child support payments or something, Zach.
Zombie is in the audience having tequila poured down his throat. Odin approaches and has tequila spit in his eyes; Zombie grabs his head and slams it into the guardrail, then steps up to the guardrail and gives Odin a 'Zombiecanrana'.
Zach Davis: And Zombie McMorris gets into the Mexican spirit!
Shannan Lerch: Apparently Honey Badger don't give a shit about swallowing.
Zombie picks up a couple of cactuses from the golf cart mess and tosses them in the ring. Odin charges towards Zombie with a knockout punch, but Zombie ducks... then slams Odin's head into the ring post and rolls him inside. From out of nowhere, Johnny Stylez runs along the apron and tackles Zombie.
Zach Davis: JOHNNY STYLEZ! He's still not dead!
Shannan Lerch: Odin must be losing his touch!
Stylez climbs up top and hits a ridiculous frog splash.
Zach Davis: Johnny Stylez for the win! 1....Odin throws him off with furious anger!
Shannan Lerch: Or maybe he's just playing possum. Those tricky Norsemen...
Odin grabs Stylez and hits a huge headbutt. Odin then bounces off the ropes, hits a jumping knee drop on Stylez and goes for a cover.
Zach Davis: 1...2...Zombie breaks up the pin!
Shannan Lerch: Zombie doesn't look too good...
Odin puts Zombie in a bear hug, but Zombie vomits all over him. Odin lets go, Zombie dropkicks him in the knee.
Zach Davis: And a refund to the face for Odin Balfore!
Shannan Lerch: Oof. That's always embarrassing... and strangely kind of hot.
Odin tries to stand, gets another dropkick in the knee. Zombie grabs the larger cactus and begins slapping Odin in the face with it - Odin shouts loudly at him with stickers coming out of his face. Zombie kicks Odin in the jaw.
Zach Davis: Desert warfare has come to the ring here at Asesinato De Mayo...
Shannan Lerch: And look at lazy Stylez, sitting back and watching Odin and Zombie go at it... get a job!
Zombie goes to do another toot of whatever that is- Stylez charges in and hits him with the Dimebag Death Drop (snow plow). Odin grabs him by both sides of the head, but Stylez kicks Odin square in the... groin.
Zach Davis: I can't believe it! Try as he might, Odin Balfore just can't seem to put Johnny Stylez down! Stylez with an inside cradle!
3?! NEW CHAMPION!
Kyle Steel: Your winner of the match and the NEW WCF INTERNET CHAMPION... JOHNNY STYLEZ!
Zach Davis: Domestik Disturbance finally gets a taste of WCF gold thanks to Johnny Stylez surviving multiple Odin massacres... wow. What a show it's already been!
Shannan Lerch: Now his illegitimate children can say their bastard father is a champion. It warms the heart, doesn't it?
Zach Davis: Since when do you have one of those?
"Dance with the Devil" by Breaking Benjamin begins playing as Al Envy confidently walks down the ramp and before he enters ring climbs to second turnbuckle and stares into the crowd and towards the ramp awaiting his opponents. He then climbs down and springboards into the ring. He stands in a corner and watches as....
'Riding The Storm Out' by REO Speedwagon begins playing on the Jumbo-Tron as Hank 'Thunder' Lane makes his way towards the ring. He is wearing a long Satin robe with Thunder on the back of it in Diamonds. Hank pauses and points towards Al Envy and moves his thumb across his throat. 'Thunder' Grabs a mic from Shannan Lerch at ringside and winks at her as their hands lightly touch. She smiles as if she had just had a wish come true. 'Thunder' Climbs into the ring and doesn't even bother looking at Al Envy as he waits for the champion to make his entrance.
"Flashlight" by Parlaiment Funkadelic begins playing as 'The Mack' Steve Orbit walks ahead of Golden Joey, talking to girls who mostly give him disgusted looks, which he is oblivious to and continues blowing kisses and making 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 Golden Joey. He continues to "flirt" with the girls in the crowd as he enters the ring. He stares down 'Thunder' from a distance and turns towards Envy and gives him the finger.
Shannan Lerch: This should be one heck of a match right here.
Zach Davis: We all know who you will be pulling for don't we?
Shannan Lerch: And who would that be Zach?
Zach Davis: Only the one that just made you cream your jeans because his hand touched yours. Lets go to the ring announcer.
"Ladies and Gentlemen this match is for the WCF Television Championship. First, standing 6'3" and weighing247 pounds from Fort Worth, Texas. Al Envy!"
The crowd explodes with a mixture of cheers and boos as the announcer began to speak once again.
"Second, Standing 6'3" and weighing in at 250 pounds. He hails from the mean streets of Chicago, Illinois. Please welcome Hank 'Thunder' Lane!"
The crowd erupts again this time with quite a few more cheers than boos. Even a few signs with 'Thunder' on them filled the Mexico City Arena.
Zach Davis: Okay Shannan, You can stop drooling already. You'd think you were some kind of schoolgirl the way your acting.
Shannan Lerch: What's wrong, Zach? You just jealous because no one is interested in you?
Zach Davis: Like I would even go THERE!
Shannan Lerch: You sure tried last night didn't you! Too bad you didn't get anywhere!
"Now, Standing 6'2" and weighing in at 240lbs Hailing rom Oakland, California. He is YOUR WCF Television Champion! Please welcome Steve 'The Mack' Orbit!"
This time there is no doubt about it as a chorus of boo's echo's throuought the arena.
Zach Davis: They sure don't like the champion do they?
Shannan Lerch: Not exactly there Zach.
The bell rings and the three men collide in the middle of the ring with a flury of fists. Orbit takes an early advantage after whipping Al Envy into Hank 'Thunder' Lane and knocking Envy out onto the Arena floor. Orbit grabs lane and hits him with a forearm smash uppercut that sends him reeling. Orbit follows with a clothesline that sends lane to the mat. Orbit walks over and reaches down to pick up Lane when he is grabbed and placed in cradle pin attempt.
Zach Davis: Looks like 'Thunder' was playing a little Possom there with Mack. Almost scored the pin there.
Shannan Lerch: Be quiet, I'm watching the match. Look at that move by Envy!
While Orbit and lane continued to battle in one of the corners they didn't notice Al Envy climbing the ropes. Not until Orbit turns just in time to get a drop kick to the face. Orbit and Envy both go down. 'Thunder' takes the opportunity to grab Envy and hit him with a quick snap suplex on top of the fallen Orbit. Lane climbs up to the top rope and launches himself. A frog splash! Envy and Orbit both roll out of the way at the last second as Lane hits the canvas. Orbit rolls him over and hooks his leg. With his own feet on the ropes for leverage. The Ref begins to count.
Shannan Lerch: This could be it right here! Where is the referee?
Zack davis: There he is right there. 'Thunder' Lane pulled him outside of the ring.
Shannan Lerch: That's one way to break up the count. Don't even let it start.
As soon as the ref gets back in the ring Envy is all over him complaining about his being out of position. He doesn't even notice Orbit getting up behind him until... WHAM! Orbit hits him with a shortarm clothesline that send Envy reeling backwards. Lane holds down the top rope as Envy approaches it and he falls over to the arena floor. lane climbs down and grabs him, Hitting him with a DDT onto the concrete. Lane then climbs back into the ring. Only to be met by a now rested Orbit who connects with another clothesline that almost sends Lane reeling. Lane retaliates with a right cross to the jaw that makes Orbit back up a bit. The crowd is getting into it now as you can tell their indifference to the champion. Orbit hits Lane with a kick to the groin and a rake to the eyes that gives him the advantage. Orbit with repeated forearm smashes backs Lane into the corner. Orbot climbs to the second rope and begins pounding down on Lanes head as the crowd counts along.
Lane drops to the canvas, Orbit picks him up and hits him with a DDT. Orbit goes for the pin.
Zach Davis: I don't know where Lane got the energy to kick out of that!
Shannan Lerch: That just shows you how awesome he is! I mean, He's a great wrestler.
Zach Davis: Yea, And I bet you'd LOVE to wrestle him huh!
No, Orbit reverses the pin attempt and has Envy in a small package. The ref counts....
Shannan Lerch: Its over!
Zach Davis: Steve Orbit retains his title! What a match!
Shannan Lerch: Hank Lane and Al Envy were so great here tonight but its Orbit who picks up the win and retains his TV title.
Steve Orbit gets handed the Television Championship by the ref and starts to celebrate in the ring in honor of his first title defense. Steve Orbit holds the title up high and shows off for the crowd before getting on the turnbuckle as "Flashlight" by Parlaiment Funkadelic hit’s the PA.
Shannan Lerch: That TV title has catapulted a lot of great WCF up and commers to some great things. I see only great things for Steve Orbit.
Zach Davis: Exactly Shannan. The title run the past two champions have had, were insane. Steve Orbit did the unthinkable and beat NvL last week, defended it tonight in a triple threat. Steve Orbits gonna be the next big thing in WCF!
Suddenly “Flashlight” cuts off as Steve Orbit continues to celebrate in the ring.
Shannan Lerch: Great, My brother didn’t pay the bills again. But how could he from jail, I guess.
“ With Oden on Our Side.” hit’s the PA system.
Shannan Lerch: What the... Odin Balfore?
Zach Davis: What's the Nordic Tank doing here?
Odin Balfore makes his way towards the ring. Steve Orbit grabs a mic, and motions the crowd to be silent.
Steve Orbit: [a bit confused] Yo... Yo, hold up!
The crowd does not obey.
Steve Orbit: All a y'all shut the fuck up!
The crowd boos. Steve looks towards Odin Balfore as he approaches the ring.
Steve Orbit: What's up, big man? You got business out here?
Odin continues to walk towards the ring. He points at Steve and gives a thumbs up. Steve cautiously takes a few steps back in the ring, keeping his eyes on Odin.
Shannan Lerch: This is bizarre.
Odin climbs into the ring.
Steve Orbit: What you doin' out here, homie?
Odin Takes the mic from Steve.
Odin Balfore: Easy, easy. I just wanted to come out here and congratulate you on your win. Some might say that it's impressive.
Steve lets his guard down a little bit, as the two first shake hands, and then a quick hug.
Zach Davis: This is unbelievable! An alliance between these two? Who would have guessed it?
Shannan Lerch: It looks like Odin wants to take the new guy under his wing. I don't blame him, with all the promise that the Mack has been showing since his debut a month ago.
Odin raises Steve's hand in victory. The crowd goes wild with disbelief and excitement. Then all of a sudden...
Shannan Lerch: SHORT ARM CLOTHESLINE FROM ODIN BALFORE!
Zach Davis: I knew it was too good to be true.
Odin continues to stomp Steve. He raises Steve to his feet and throws him out of the ring, over the top rope.
Odin Balfore: But I'm not impressed! I wanted to congratulate you but I also wanted to come out here and tell you that I'm coming back around the mountain, now that I'm done being held back by the Internet Title. The Maverick Elite has returned!
Steve is laid out on the floor outside the ring, the Television belt beside him on the ground, as Odin makes his way through the ropes to the ringside floor. He picks Steve up and...
Zach Davis: MARK OF ODIN! Odin Balfore is launching an all-out assault on the Television champion. Somebody needs to stop this before he is seriously injured!
Odin picks up the Television belt.
Odin Balfore: And it doesnt matter what you think about it 'cuz there's nothing you can do to stop it and IT will be EPIC! See you next week champ!
Odin drops the belt on Steve's motionless body.
Shannan Lerch: I'm... this is shocking, Zach, I can't believe what we're seeing!
Zach Davis: Odin said "see you next week", does that mean there is a match in store for these two? Is Odin after the Television belt, or is this personal?
Shannan Lerch: Who knows, but I'm sure more will be revealed.
"Won't Back Down" by Eminem blares on the PA. On the right side of the stage there is a bike ramp that extends just about to the middle of the Titan Tron. Atop the bike ramp is Jeff Purse. He is sitting on his bike, looking out upon the audience. He throws one had in the air as the audience cheers.
"You can sound the alarm
At this he sets off down the ramp. Directly across is another ramp on the left side of the stage, which Purse heads for.
"Cadillac Sevilles, Coupe Devilles
Purse flies up the other ramp, launching off of it. He pulls off a small back flip, rides down the rest of the ramp, and comes to a screeching halt in the center of the stage. He gets off, kickstands it. He looks out, smiles, and throws his arms in the air. Red and Blue pyros explode behind him
"I cut my toes off and step on the receipt before I foot the bill
He starts off down the ramp as Kari joins him, slapping five with fans, walking very casually but at a quick pace. When he gets to the ring he jumps up on the apron and quickly makes his way in through the middle rope, while Kari walks around the outside, pumping up the crowd. Jeff stands in the center of the ring, "air guns" a corner, pyros shoot out of it. He subsequently does that for every other corner, pyros of red and white shooting out every time. He anxiously awaits his competition.
Zach Davis: Here is Jeff Purse! Former Tag Team Champion, but now he's on his own since Night Rider has left the company.
Shannan Lerch: He and Rider were never exactly the best of friends, anyway. And now he's got a shot at the US Title!
"Something in Your Mouth" by Nickleback plays over the loud speakers as Hunter makes his way down the ramp to a chorus of boos. He stops in the middle of the ramp as green and black pyros go off behind him.
Hunter slides in underneath the bottom rope as he puts his hands on the top rope and glares menacingly into the camera. He is cascaded by boos as the intensity in this face is shown to the world. Pyros go off in the background as his glare is never changing. The boos continues as the next opponent in introduced.
Zach Davis: And here is Hunter Valentyne, and he's surely looking for more success than his Business partners here tonight.
"Ecstasy of Gold" by Ennio Morricone plays on the sound system. The intricate melodies sweeping over the arena. Benjamin Atreyu pushes pass the curtains, Blake Updegraff IV following right behind him, stepping out onto the entrance ramp. Blake Updegraff points at Benjamin, presenting him to the booing crowd.
Kyle Steel: Accompanied to the ring by the C.E.O. of "Future Gods Incorporated" Blake Updegraff IV, weighing in at two hundred and thirty one pounds, self-proclaimed "God Given Greatness" Benjamin Atreyu!
He slides into the ring as his manager walks up the stairs taunting the crowd. Benjamin Atreyu jumps to his feet as Blake Updegraff slips in between the top and middle rope.
He walks to the center of the ring, his manager 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 and his manager slips back out of the ring.
Shannan Lerch: Benjamin Atreyu was destined for greatness since he entered the company; now that Future Gods Inc. are official, the sky is the limit.
All three are in their corners, and the bell sounds. Each of them circle around the others, taking it slow. Eventually, Atreyu takes a kick at Purse, which connects. Valentyne kicks Purse as well. Purse is sent into a corner, and Atreyu and Valentyne start kicking at his gut, until he slumps down, at which time they begin stomping mudholes.
Zach Davis: Ah, triple threats. Where alliances are formed, and surely broken in a few moments.
Atreyu picks Purse up and irish whips him to Valentyne, who hits him with a Big Boot, sending him down. Atreyu immediately double crosses Valentyne, going for a Clothesline, but Valentyne expected it and ducks it. Valentyne then hits Atreyu with a German Suplex!
Shannan Lerch: The US Champ hit with a big German!
Purse has stumbled up, and Valentyne runs at him and tackles him down, hitting him with punch after punch after punch! Eventually Valentyne stands up with both his competitors down on the mat; the crowd responds with a chorus of booing.
Zach Davis: Hunter Valentyne, standing tall!
He goes to pick Purse up, and Purse hits Valentyne with a stiff punch to the gut. He follows up with a Spinning Heel Kick, sending Valentyne stumbling backwards... when Atreyu rolls him up out of nowhere!
Purse kicks Atreyu off. Purse picks Atreyu up and goes for a Neckbreaker, but Atreyu shoves him away. Atreyu hits a stiff kick to Purse before executing a perfect Snap Suplex.
Shannan Lerch: Some quick offense by Jeff Purse, but it didn't last long. Atreyu is back in control.
Valentyne grabs Atreyu from behind, but Atreyu switches behind him quickly and kicks him in the back of the leg. Valentyne stumbles away before Atreyu knees him in the stomach, and then executes a Pump Handle Slam into pin!
Zach Davis: This could be it!
No, Valentyne kicks out.
Shannan Lerch: Hunter Valentyne has been the standout member of The Business; he won't be an easy man to defeat.
Atreyu stands and is met with an Enziguri from out of nowhere by Jeff Purse! The crowd cheers as Purse measures up Valentyne as Valentyne stands... Purse grabs him and hits a big Belly to Belly Suplex! Valentyne gets up again, holding his back in pain, Purse runs by him and up the turnbuckle, flies off...
Zach Davis: Taking Off The Training Wheels! This has to be it!
The fans are on their feet as the ref makes the count.
NO! Valentyne kicks out!
Shannan Lerch: Atreyu almost lost his US Title right there!
Purse begins climbing to the top once more, albeit a little slower than last time.
Zach Davis: Is he going for The Deflater?
Doesn't matter, because as soon as he's up, Atreyu runs, jumps to the top, grabs him and hits a huge Superplex!
Shannan Lerch: DAMN!
Atreyu throws his arm over Purse, pinning him.
NO! Purse kicks out!
Zach Davis: Damn! Jeff Purse, showing his heart here tonight.
Atreyu stumbles up and begins kicking at both Purse and Valentyne. Dividing his attention doesn't work forever, however; soon Valentyne has worked his way up, and blocks a strike from Atreyu. Valentyne takes him down with a Russian Legsweep, then picks Purse up and tosses him out of the ring. He turns back to Atreyu, hits him with a Gutwrench Suplex. Atreyu stumbles up... and Valentyne hits him with a Top Wristlock Legsweep!
Shannan Lerch: CONTROVERSY!
Valentyne pins Atreyu, hooking his leg.
Zach Davis: NEW US CHAMP!
NO! Atreyu kicked out at the last minute!
Shannan Lerch: Holy crap! So close!
Valentyne yells at the ref briefly before standing up and gets Atreyu in the underhook position...
Zach Davis: He's going for the Valentyme!
But Purse runs and hits him with a Lariat from behind! Purse throws Valentyne out of the ring before Atreyu stumbles up and runs at him. Purse hits him with a Back Bodydrop, sending Atreyu flying out of the ring and on top of Valentyne. The crowd is on their feet as Jeff backs up, runs, and hits a Suicide Plancha onto both men!
Crowd: Holy shit! Holy shit! Holy shit!
Shannan Lerch: Hot damn!
Purse stumbles to his feet and picks Hunter up, throwing him back into the ring. Purse slides in and pins Valentyne.
NO! HUNTER KICKS OUT!
Zach Davis: AGAIN, we almost had a new US Champ! Wow!
Purse rolls off, panting, knowing he was so close to gold. He backs up and begins stomping his foot.
Shannan Lerch: Jeff Purse is going for The Spoke!
As Valentyne stands, Purse hits it! Purse pins Valentyne once more!
Zach Davis: WHAT!
Shannan Lerch: New Champ! I don't believe it!
Purse's music hits as Atreyu and Blake look up from outside the ring, angrily.
Zach Davis: Atreyu just lost his US Title.. without being pinned. That's the worst position a Champ could be in.
Purse stands, grabs the US Title from the ref and climbs a turnbuckle, raising it in the air.
Shannan Lerch: For the second time in WCF, Jeff Purse has gold around his waist.
We see a backstage worker trying to lift up a box. Suddenly, he trips on something and the box falls on him. Because of his wimpiness, he's trapped.
Backstage Worker: HELP!!!
Suddenly, Kamen Rider Subarashi comes out.
Kamen Rider Subarashi: Did someone say help?
Subarashi uses his strength to pick it up and place it somewhere else.
Backstage Worker: Hey, thanks.
Kamen Rider Subarashi: No need to thank me. Just doing my job. Subarashi, out!
Subarashi runs away off-screen as the guy looks on.
We come back from a promo video for next month's Blast PPV with a sweeping shot of the crowd. The camera then comes to rest on the center of the ring where Kyle Steel is standing with a microphone.
Kyle Steel: Ladies and Gentlemen, the following contest is a Last Man Standing Match. The only way to win the match is to incapacitate your opponent to where he cannot answer the 10 count. Introducing first...
Gold lights will start flashing as AC/DC's "Back In Black" starts and as soon as Eric Price walks out, a gold spotlight will shine on him as he makes his way to the ring with a slow and determined walk with a smirk on his face as he walks down the entrance ramp and simply looks down on the audience.
Kyle Steel: From Pacific Palisades, California, weighing in at two hundred and fifty pounds...Eric Priiiice.
He steps in the ring using the steps and walks into the ring as he stands in the center of it looking around at the audience with disdain and a grin on his face.
Kyle Steel: And introducing his opponent...
The Lights Shut off and My Name By Eminem FT Xzibit Blasts Through the Speakers and Green smoke fills the entrance ramp as red and blue lights flash through out the crowd and Nic Daniels Walks Out With the Lovely Gina Caldwell.
Kyle Steel: Weighing in at two hundred and seventy pounds, from Detroit, Michigan..."The Truth" Nic Daaaaaaaniels.
As they both Walk through the smoke then look into the crowds for their reaction, He then looks at Gina Nods then Heads down to the ring as he poses into the ring as Gina Caldwell Claps at ring side as Nic waits in his corner.
Zach Davis: Oh Shannan am ever excited for this one. There's just something about the brutality of a Last Man Standing match that makes it fun to watch.
Shannan Lerch: I don't know if fun is the word I would use, but this should be a sight to see. These two do not like each other one bit and if all we see is a bit of blood we'll be lucky.
Both men step out of their respective corners and meet up in the center of the ring with referee Skip Johnson in the middle. A bit of jawjacking ensues before both men take a step back and yell for the referee to start the match. With a shrug of his shoulders, the referee does just that.
DING! DING! DING!
And immediately Daniels and Price rush forward and lock horns with each other. They fight for position, pushing and pulling each other all over the ring until Price ends up in the corner. Daniels lets go, cocks back his right arm and unloads with a big punch. Price responds with a right of his own. Price now with a chop to the chest, followed up by a second and now he's out of the corner. Price now grabbing Daniels and they trade spots as Price pushes him into the corner. Price now unloading on the chest of Daniels with a few rapid chops.
Shannan Lerch: Just listen to the sound of those chops Zach. You can hear the hate every time hand meets chest.
Price pauses long enough to grab Daniels by the arm and try to whip him across the ring to the opposite corner. Daniels counters and whips Price into the ropes. Price comes back and Daniels with the knee to the midsection. Price flips forward, hits the mat and is right back up to his feet. The two again lock up, this time with Daniels applying the hammerlock. He torques the arm a few times before Price begins to fight back, using his free arm to throw a few elbows back. Daniels is forced to release the hold and Price immediately takes him to the mat with an arm drag. Daniels hits the mat, gets right back up to his feet and Price takes him down with a second arm drag. Price does it again for a third time but this time holds on and applies the armbar.
Zach Davis: I have to question the reasoning for the arm bar here Shannan. Normally this could be a match ending move, but this match is all about the ten count, not tapping out.
Shannan Lerch: Look at it this way Zach, an injured arm is going to make it harder for Daniels to get in any offense. I actually think it's a sound strategy.
Daniels begins to thrash about with his free arm, searching for the ropes. He finally grabs the bottom one only to have the referee tell him that it won't break the hold. Price continues to apply pressure as Daniels tries to break free.
Zach Davis: I'm starting to see your point Shannan. If Price keeps adding pressure he could end up breaking that arm. And a broken arm would defiantly hamper Daniel's arsenal.
Daniels switches up his strategy and begins pulling himself along with Price on the mat toward the edge of the ring. With one final pull, Daniels falls to the arena floor with Price still hanging on tightly to his arm. As Price hits the floor the hold is broken and Daniels immediately clutches his arm in pain.
Shannan Lerch: The hold has been broken but the damage may have been done.
Price charges Daniels, but Daniels is ready for him and executes a drop toe hold, sending Price face first into the apron. Price drops to the mat clutching his nose as Daniels pulls himself to his feet. Daniels now stomping away at the midsection of Price as the referee looks on from the apron.
Zach Davis: You know I was just thinking, a match like this must be like a mini vacation for a referee. All they have to do is come out here and watch the action. It's like they're a fan, only with a much better seat.
Price grabs hold of Daniels' foot during an attempted stomp and is able to trip him up. As Daniels falls to the mat, Price gets up to his feet and grabs Daniels by the legs. He turns him over and tries to apply the sharpshooter.
Shannan Lerch: And again Price is going for a submission maneuver, this time targeting the legs. He's really trying to wear down Nic Daniels.
Price nearly gets the sharpshooter locked in before Daniels fights him off and uses his legs to send Price chest first into the ringside barricade. Daniels back to his feet and he spins Price around before shoving him back into the barricade. Daniels now cocking back his arm and delivering a huge chop across the chest of Price. And Daniels with a second. And a third. A fourth...fifth...sixth...and seventh chop. Price's chest now cherry red as he grimaces in pain. Daniels backs off, screams for the fans to move and then rushes Price, clotheslining him over the barricade and into the ringside seats.
Zach Davis: And Nic Daniels has come alive with a flurry of offense!
Rather than hop the barricade, Daniels turns around and lifts up the ring apron. He searches about and comes back out with a steel chair in his possession. Meanwhile Eric Price has shaken off the cobwebs and is standing by the barricade, clutching his beet red chest. He tries to climb back over the barricade, oblivious to the fact that Daniels is standing right in front of him, a chair above his head. Price is halfway over when Daniels unloads, connecting with a shot right across the back.
Shannan Lerch: Oh, what a chair shot!
Price is laid out, draped over the barricade. He begins to stir when Daniels lays into him with a second chair shot to the back. Price falls over and onto the arena floor as Daniels looks to the referee.
Referee Skip Johnson: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FIVE!
Price is up on his knees by the five count and using the barricade to pull himself up. He's up before the count reaches six and Daniels rewards him by tossing the chair to the side and unloading with a forearm shot to the back of the head. Price stumbles into the barricade and then responds by spinning around and catching Daniels with an elbow to the face from out of nowhere. Daniels grabs his face and Price buys himself a moment by delivering a swift kick straight to the bread basket. Daniels drops to his knees and then falls to the side as he holds himself in pain.
Zach Davis: Rules or no rules, that is always uncalled for in my opinion.
Price walks off in search of the chair that Daniels tossed away as Daniels begins to crawl toward the ring apron. He lifts it up and gingerly starts to go under the ring. Price finds the chair and picks it up before turning around to find Daniels halfway under the ring. He walks over and drops the chair to the ground before pulling Daniels out from under the ring. Daniels appears with a kendo stick in hand and before Price can react, Daniels connects with a shot to the side of the leg. Price drops Daniels' legs and Daniels sits up, delivering a second kendo stick shot in the process. Red welts are already starting to form on Price's legs as he backs off. Daniels now back up to his feet and he moves toward Price. Price quickly snatches up the chair from the arena and we have ourselves a mexican standoff as both men dare the other to make a move.
Shannan Lerch: Chair or kendo stick, which one is going to win here?
Zach Davis: The chair obviously Shannan. Really now, is that even a question?
Both men decide to make the first move at the same time and charge each other. Daniels swings his kendo stick at the same time Price swings his chair and they connect. The chair sends the kendo stick flying into the crowd, leaving a lucky fan with a souveneir. Daniels watches as Price raises the chair above his head again and decides to hop the barricade into the crowd. He gets over just in time, barely avoiding a chair shot that the barricade instead takes. A fan loses his seat as Daniels grabs one of the folding chairs from ringside. Price hops the barricade, chair still in hand, and once again we have a standoff, this time each with an equal weapon. Price takes the first swing, which Daniels ducks. Daniels now swinging and Price hops back, narrowly avoiding the chair. Now both men swing at the same and the chairs connect with each other. The resulting collision is enough to make both men drop their chairs as the vibration was too much to bare.
Zach Davis: I feel like we're watching an old timey sword fight instead of a wrestling match.
Shannan Lerch: You sound disappointed Zach. I thought you were a fan of sword fights.
Zach Davis: Oh I am. I love sword fighting, there's just something so manly about it.
Price and Daniels shake it off and immediately lock up once again. Daniels gets the advantage and applies the hammerlock before pushing Price up the stairs of the arena. The referee is forced to roll out of the ring and hop the barricade in pursuit of the two as they make their way through the crowd.
Shannan Lerch: Where are these two headed?
Zach Davis: Well there's no rule saying the ten count has to happen in the ring.
A cameraman just happens to be in the hallway as Price is thrown through a set of double doors and to the floor. Daniels follows through the doors with the referee in tow. Daniels pulls Price up to his feet and then shoves him up against the wall. With his left hand wrapped around Price's neck, Daniels unloads with a few rights to the face. Price responds with a rake of the eyes and Daniels is forced to let go. Price now quickly hits him with an inverted facelock neckbreaker and Daniels goes down. From out of nowhere Hank Brown appears with a cameraman of his own, a microphone in his hand as he's obviously on his way to do an interview. Price hits Hank with a punch to the face and then steals the microphone from his hand. Price now dropping to his knees beside Daniels and he unloads with a shot to the forehead.
Eric Price: What, you think you can beat me? You can't Daniels. You can't beat me. Not now, not ever.
Price then unloads with a furry of microphone shots to the forehead of Daniels until he's busted open. Price then tosses the microphone to the side and gets to his feet, signaling for the referee to start the count.
Referee Skip Johnson: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FIVE! SIX!
Upon six Daniels begins to stir, rolling onto his side and pushing himself up to a sitting position. Price rushes him and connects with a kick to the side of the head. The referee goes to begin the count again when Price instead pulls Daniels up to his feet and positions him for an olympic slam. Price gets him up but Daniels gets loose and lands behind him. Daniels now grabbing Price by the back of the head and driving him face first into the wall in front of them. Daniels now grabbing Price by the waist and pulling off a beautiful german suplex. Both men are down and the referee starts his count.
Referee Skip Johnson: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR!
Daniels is the first to his feet.
Referee Skip Johnson: FIVE! SIX!
Price is now up to his feet, a trickle of blood dripping from his nose.
Shannan Lerch: And now both of these men are bleeding, although Daniels defiantly looks worse. That cut on his forehead has seemingly gotten bigger.
Daniels wipes blood from his eyes and stares right into the eyes of Price. Neither man looks particularly fond of the idea of making the first move, but they eventually both move in and lock up. Price gets the advantage and pushes Daniels up against the wall before dragging him down the hall. He spots a semi-open door and throws Daniels into it, sending him flying into the room. Price and the referee follow and we find ourselves in the concession area. A group of fans that were in the process of buying snacks and memorabilia are treated to an up close look at the action as the two again lock up.
Shannan Lerch: Oh this should end well. I can already smell the lawsuit coming.
Price gets the advantage and shoves Daniels up against the counter of a concession stand. He takes a step back and then rushes Daniels, clotheslining him up and over the counter and onto the floor. Both of the employees that had been serving customers high tail it out of there as Price climbs over the counter and grabs one of the electrical cords plugged into the wall. He wraps it around the neck of Daniels and begins to choke the life out of him.
Zach Davis: Well there's one way to keep a guy down for 10 seconds.
Daniels is gasping for air as he flails his arms about, scratching at the face, arms and neck of Price. Price continues to choke the air out of Daniels as he screams at him to pass out. Daniels begins reaching out for anything he can find and comes up with a pocketbook. He swings it back a few times and finally connects with the face of Price, forcing him to break the hold. Daniels falls to his knees, gasping in full breaths of fresh air, as Price grabs his eye.
Shannan Lerch: It looks like part of the strap may have caught Price in the eye there.
Zach Davis: I've had that happen on more than one occasion. And let me tell you, it doesn't feel good?
Shannan Lerch: You've taken a lot of purse straps to the eye Zach?
Zach Davis: What can I say, not every lady is a fan of the Zach Attack.
Price's eye seems to be a bit better as he moves in and pulls Daniels up to his feet. Price now pulling Daniels in and he tries for a suplex. Daniels blocks it, hits a forearm to the face and now he's positioning himself so he's standing in front of a glass drink case. Daniels now setting up Price for a belly to belly suplex...AND HE HITS IT!
Shannan Lerch: OHMYGOD! Eric Price just got suplexed through the glass front of that display case.
Slow motion replays are shown and you can see Price's back exploding through the glass part of the case. Price is now laid out on the floor as Daniels leans against the counter, looking to the referee to start the count.
Referee Skip Johnson: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FIVE! SIX! SEVEN!
And Price is up before the referee can get to eight. Bits and pieces of glass are still stuck in his back and there's a drop of blood here and there. Daniels is right on him, throwing lefts and rights, and Price is staggering. Daniels now grabbing him by the head and leading him over to the counter. Daniels now smashing Price's face into the counter. And a second time. And a third. Daniels now rolling Price up onto the counter before climbing up himself.
Zach Davis: What could Nic Daniels have in mind here?
Shannan Lerch: Nothing good I bet.
Daniels pulls Price up to his feet and then lifts him up before delivering a huge spinebuster off of the counter and onto the floor. The referee moves in to start the count when Daniels waves him off. Daniels now spinning around and leaping off with a lionsault. He hits and rolls off cluthching his ribs as the referee starts the count again.
Referee Skip Johnson: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FIVE! SIX! SEVEN! EIGHT!
By eight Price is up to his knees and before the referee can get to nine he's up but he's seemingly out on his feet. Daniels moves in and sets him up for a russian leg sweep. From out of nowhere Price comes to life and counters with an elbow to the face. Daniels is caught off guard and Price takes advantage by hitting him with an olympic slam to the ground.
Zach Davis: What a move! And just like that Eric Price has regained control of this match.
The referee moves in and begins the ten count.
Referee Skip Johnson: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FIVE! SIX! SEVEN!
At seven Daniels has gotten himself to a sitting position, and rather than wait for him to get all the way up, Price rushes him and delivers a kick to the face. Daniels now trying to get to his hands and knees, but Price again with a kick to the head. Price stands back and waits to do it a third time as Daniels struggle to get up. Price rushes him, looking for another kick, but Daniels catches the foot, stopping Price in his tracks. Daniels standing up, Price's foot still in his grasps. He goes to pull him in for a capture suplex but Price quickly gets him with a rake of the eyes. With Daniels blinded, Price catches him with a low blow. Now blinded and holding himself, Daniels can't counter as Price lifts him up and drops him with the inverted death valley driver on the hard ground.
Shannan Lerch: CA$H FLOW!
The referee moves in for the ten count.
Referee Skip Johnson: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FIVE! SIX! SEVEN! EIGHT! NINE!
AND DANIELS IS UP!
Zach Davis: HOW THE HELL IS HE STILL ALIVE? That should have killed him, but Nic Daniels is up on his feet.
Daniels is indeed up, but he immediately falls back into the counter, having to use it to keep himself erect. Eric Price isn't the least bit pleased that Daniels found a way to get to his feet. He looks around and spots a kid with a WCF Souveneir T-Shirt in his hands. Price grabs it and then wraps it around the neck of Daniels as the kid begins to cry to his parents. Price now choking Daniels once again and Daniels falls to his knees, gasping for air.
Shannan Lerch: Price isn't just trying to win this match, it looks like he's trying to kill Nic Daniels.
Daniels claws at the face and neck of Price trying to get free but eventually his eyes go shut and he goes limp. Price unwraps the shirt from his neck and tosses the now bloodstained shirt at the kid as Daniels flops to the ground.
Referee Skip Johnson: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FIVE! SIX! SEVEN! EIGHT! NINE! TEN!
Zach Davis: And that is it! Eric Price has won the Last Man Standing Match!
Shannan Lerch: Congratulations to him. Now we need to get some medical attention for Nic Daniels.
Medical personnel apparently weren't too far away as they arrive to get oxygen to Nic Daniels. Price watches the scene for a moment and then walks off, a huge smile on his face. We fade away to another promo for WCF Blast with the last image of Nic Daniels being of him sitting up, an oxygen mask on his face.
After a quick advertisement of the next up and coming wrestler to come into WCF, the cameras pan several wrestlers walking down the aisle to the ring.
Zach Davis: Shannan Lerch. We are coming up to the career verses career match.
Shannan Lerch: As everyone can see, not only will there be 16 lumberjacks, but there are several ladders around the ring. Because way high above the ring...
The cameras show, above the ring, two contracts.
Shannan Lerch: Two contracts. Who ever can reach to those contracts and grab their opponent's contract, that person will be forced to leave WCF!!
Zach Davis: Not only, there are many more stipulations to this match. This is an hardcore style match, which means when a wrestler is climbing the ladder anyone could enter the ring and knock off the person, from the ladder.
Shannan Lerch: There's more!
Zach Davis: There's more?!
Shannan Lerch: Yes, there's more. If someone gets pinned or tap out. They are escorted out of the ring and placed in cage for one minute. In that minute, the wrestler has to go outside the ring and fight off the wrestlers to grab for a ladder and bring it into the ring. But, once that minute ends, that wrestler can re enter the ring and the fight will be back on. Whoever grabs their opponent's contract, the match will be over. sounds good to you, Zach?!
Zach Davis: Sounds great to me, Shannan!!
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 ram.
Kyle Steel: From Stockton, California... Weighing in at 272 pounds.... The Holy Flame... STEE-EELTOE-OE-OE JOE-OE-OE!!
Joe 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. Joe looks at all the lumberjacks and sees all the ladders. Joe looks up and see the contracts.
Zach Davis: It looks like Steeltoe Joe is ready. All we need now is Tek.
Shannan Lerch: These two former friends are now bitter enemies. Someone WILL be leaving WCF.... TONIGHT!!!
The arena lights go out and then on the screen, you see a hand that is holding five fingers up. Every second that goes past and finger goes down till one and the one second finger is the middle finger. Then Hollywood Undead's Tear It up plays and the camera goes to the stage there is a figure standing there. They put a spot light to the figure stands and it shows a man wearing long black basketball shorts, a black pair of DC shoes and a black and white LA Dodger hat with a water bottle in hand. This man comes walking down the ramp as he drinks from the water bottle and bopping his head to the song and in his other hand has a black baseball bat, and has he starts comes to the ring the screen goes from color to black and white and when tek gets in the ring the screen goes back to color and black smoke falls from the roof.
Zach Davis: This match is underway!!
The Arena is flooded with cheers and excitement as Steeltoe Joe gets the crowd riled up...
Crowd: LET'S GO STEELTOE LET'S GO!! <clap-clap> LET'S GO STEELTOE LET'S GO!! <clap-clap> LET'S GO STEELTOE LET'S GO!! <clap-clap>
Joe walks around the ring with long and strong strides as he chases Tek around the ring,who eventually dips his head through the ring ropes.
Shannan Lerch: Oh no he's too close to Yoo Dun Fukt Uhp!!
Yoo Dun Fukt Uhp: HIYAZ!!
That causes Tek to get startled and he stumbles backwards. Steeltoe Joe spins Tek around...
The Arena explodes with thunderous cheers!!
Zach Davis: BAPTISM!!
Shannan Lerch: A spinning Rock Bottom!!
Zach Davis: Joe is making a pin attempt!!
Shannan Lerch: If Joe pins Tek. Tek has one minute inside a cage up at the ring entrance stage area and Steeltoe Joe gets ONE minute to get a ladder, through a sea of other wrestlers and set up the ladder and climb up and get Tek's contract~
Stanley Moser slides in...
Zach Davis: Steeltoe Joe just pinned Tek. That means...
Stanley Moser helps stand up Tek and escorts him out of the ring. the crowd is screaming loud cheers!!
Crowd: JOE!! JOE!! JOE!! JOE!! JOE!! JOE!! JOE!!
Steeltoe Joe leaves the ring, as the referee is escorting Tek up the ramp to the small cage, for one minute.
Shannan Lerch: The ringside has gone in complete pandemonium!! Bodies are everywhere!!
Zach Davis: Googley Moogley is throwing gummy bears at Steeltoe!!
Zach Davis: Joe strikes Fuzzy Wuzzy!! Here comes Hardcore McMurderkill, Cryboy McEmo, and Dark Horse!!
Shannan Lerch: They are beating down on Steeltoe Joe!!
The crowd cheers!!
Zach Davis: Here comes The Law.
The Law flies over, then jumps on the steel steps and flies in the air.
Shannan Lerch: Air Law is flying!!
Hardcore McMurderkill Cryboy McEmo and Dark Horse collapse to the ground, as Steeltoe Joe grabs a ladder.
Zach Davis: Joe has a ladder!!
Steeltoe Joe slides the ladder in...
Shannan Lerch: HERE COMES ERIC PRICE!!
Eric Price just smashed a chair into the back of the head of Steeltoe Joe!!
Zach Davis: What the Hell?!?!
Shannan Lerch: This match has hardcore rules. Anything goes!!
Eric Price grabs Steeltoe Joe and hits the Olympic slam onto the ringside mats.
The overhead clock counts down....
Zach Davis: Here comes Tek!!
As Tek comes running down the aisle, Buzzsaw Bundy, Skittlez, Captain Jack Dancer, and El Taco de Genial are blocking Tek's way.
Shannan Lerch: WHAT THE HELL, ZACH?!
Zach Davis: I guess Tek will have to find another way to getting into that ring.
Tek backs up and rushes towards the ring. The four wrestlers stand their ground, but Tek jumps over them and dove in between the middle and top rope. A ladder was placed on the ring apron, across the ring. Steeltoe Joe is still down from being hit by Eric Price. Tek runs over and grabs the ladder and places it, in the center of the ring.
Shannan Lerch: Tek has the ladder set up. Tek is quickly climbing up the ladder, with a wicked grin on his face!! What the Hell!?!?
Liv3ratt, Cool James Cheney, and Rockajabroni bolt into the ring.
Shannan Lerch: NOO-O-O!!
All three pushes the ladder over. the ladder falls and crashes against the ropes, which cause Tek to fall onto the ropes, straddling them in the process.
Steeltoe Joe watches and quickly runs over to Tek, who is on the top rope, riding it like a horse. Joe looks around the crowd, who are cheering for Joe.
Crowd: DO IT!! DO IT!! DO IT!! DO IT!!
Shannan Lerch: NO, JOE!! DON'T DO IT!!
Joe smiles at Tek, who has a painful look across his face. Joe grabs the top rope, with both hands and proceeds to shake the top rope, which causes Tek to shake on the top rope. After five or six bounces, Tek falls off the top rope, while grabbing his groin. The crowd laughs. Steeltoe Joe grabs Tek and kicks him in the mid-section before bouncing off the ropes and....
Zach Davis: A vicious clothesline by Steeltoe Joe!!
Joe picks up Tek and slams him hard onto the mat....
Shannan Lerch: Joe drops three quick elbows onto Tek.
Joe drops down to grab Tek...
Zach Davis: Small package by Tek!!
Both men stand up quickly....
WHAM!! WHAM!! WHAM!! WHAM!! WHAM!! WHAM!!
Shannan Lerch: Both competitors are just throwing haymakers!!
Tek slams a knee into the gut of Steeltoe Joe!!
Zach Davis: BLOOD OUT!!
Tek nails Steeltoe Joe with a forward Russian Legsweep!!
Tek doesn't go for the pin.
Shannan Lerch: WHAT?!? Tek had Joe pinned!!
Tek decides to go for the ladder which is still leaning against the ropes. Tek walks over to Joe!!
Zach Davis: Tek slams the ladder against the exposed ribs of Steeltoe Joe!!
With ladder in hand, Tek runs towards the ropes and jumps onto the second rope...
The crowd/Shannan Lerch/Zach Davis/Lumberjacks: WHOA!!!!!
Tek jumped onto the second ring rope and nailed a quick twisting springboard 450 splash, with the ladder in between himself and Steeltoe Joe.
Crowd: HOLY SHIT!! THAT WAS AWESOME!! HOLY SHIT!! THAT WAS AWESOME!! HOLY SHIT!! THAT WAS AWESOME!!
Tek grabs his own ribs, screaming out in pain.
Shannan Lerch: I think Tek just hurt himself!!
Zach Davis: But, I think Tek is thinking more of ousting Steeltoe Joe from WCF!!
Tek slowly goes for the pin. Stanley Moser slides into position...
Shannan Lerch: That's it!! Steeltoe is being escorted to the top of the ramp, where he will be placed in a small cage for one minute!!
Tek begins to laugh, as he drags the ladder to the center, of the ring.
Tek: I GOT THIS!!
Zach Davis: Oh no he doesn't!!
Yoo dun fukt uhp, El Taco de Genial, and Skittlez enter the ring. they surround Tek. Tek goes into a fighting stance. Yoo Dun Fukt Uhp kicks, Tek catches his foot. tek laughs.
Shannan Lerch: HA!! Tek caught his foot!!
Fukt Uhp spins around and nails Tek with a double heel kick. That spins Tek around while Skittlez points his fingers like a pistol and places the "pistol" against Tek's head. He makes a "BOOM" sound with his mouth as he "pulls the trigger."
Zach Davis: Nothing happened!!
Shannan Lerch: But, Skittlez really believes he just shot Tek and expects him to drop to the mat!!
Zach Davis: What the Hell is Skittlez doing?!?
Skittlez looks around frantically and hightails it out of the ring and jumps over the security railing and "FLEES THE SCENE."
Shannan Lerch: What the.... HELL?!?! I swear this place is getting stranger and stranger!!
El Taco de Genial grabs Tek...
Zach Davis: What's this crazy taco going to do?
El Taco sprays hot sauce in Tek's eyes.
Shannan Lerch: HA!! Volcano Taco!!
Zach Davis: You're getting a kick out of this!!
Shannan Lerch: I sure am!! This has to be the best fun, I have ever had, in a match like this!! You're seeing everything!!
The overhead clock counts down....
Tek grabs his face and screams.
Tek runs off and runs into the ring ropes, face first.
He cannot see, so he stumbles back and...
El Taco kicks Tek square on the nuts!!
Zach Davis: *CRUNCH* Wrap Supreme!!!
The crowd cheers!!
Shannan Lerch: Here comes Steeltoe Joe!! I swear that was longer than one minute!!
Joe slides into the ring!! He points and laughs at Tek, who takes a few wild swings at Steeltoe Joe, while kneeling, on the mat, while grabbing a hold of his own nuts!!
Zach Davis: First Tek was hung on the ropes, straddling the ropes more like it!! Then that crazy taco kicks him in the nuts. Tek is NOT having a good night!!
Joe grabs the ladder and props it against a corner. He grabs Tek and irish whips him towards the propped up ladder.
Shannan Lerch: Tek reverses the Irish whip!!
Zach Davis: Steeltoe Joe reverses the Irish whip!!
Tek gets slam into the steel ladder. Tek bounces off the ladder and Joe picks up Tek for a slam.
Shannan Lerch: Tek wiggles free and....
Tek puts Steeltoe Joe onto his shoulders.
Zach Davis: You knwo what's coming up next?!?
Shannan Lerch: I sure do!!
Tek puts Joe in a backbreaker rack, then twists him around and powerbombs him!!
Zach Davis: RACK BOMB!!
That drops Steeltoe Joe to the mat!! Tek walks over to the ropes and asks Eric Price to look under the ring, which Eric does and he grabs for a chair. Eric Price tosses the chair into the ring. Tek catches the chair. Tek runs to a nearby corner and climbs up to the top turnbuckle. Meanwhile Joe stands up.
Shannan Lerch: What's Tek doing?!
Tek flies in the air, twisting in the process and....
Zach Davis: Holy shit!! Tek just kicked a chair into the face of Steeltoe Joe!!
Joe drops to both knees, grabbing his face. Tek stands up, grabbing the chair. Joe looks up....
Steeltoe Joe gets a chair slammed against his skull.
Shannan Lerch: ANOTHER CHAIR SHOT!!
Zach Davis: OH MY GOD!! ANOTHER CHAIR SHOT, TO THE HEAD!!
Steeltoe Joe is bleeding profusely!!
Shannan Lerch: Joe looks real bad!!
Joe tries to stand up, but can barely stand up.Joe staggers as Tek walks up behind him and grabs his arms and swings Joe around and.....
Zach Davis: STREET JUSTICE!!
Shannan Lerch: Tek is going for the pin!!
Stanley Moser slides into position...
Zach Davis: That's it!! Moser is escorting Steeltoe Joe up the ramp and into the cage!!
Joe enters the cage and slumps down and he isn't moving.
Shannan Lerch: Steeltoe Joe just collapsed inside the small holding cage.
Tek is looking down the ramp at Steeltoe Joe. Tek smiles, as he gets the ladder centered. Tek takes his time climbing up the ramp. The crowd begins to boo Tek.
Zach Davis: Here comes all of the lumberjacks!!
All of the lumberjacks enter the ring. Some go after Tek, but other wrestler bump into each other and a brawl starts, right in the ring!!
Shannan Lerch: All sixteen wrestlers are brawling, paying no mind to Tek, who is still climbing up the ladder.
Someone bumps into the ladder, making it fall, but...
Zach Davis: The ladder is falling!! Tek is almost there. But, the ladder is collapsing!! He's not gonna make it!!
The ladder tips over and Tek ends up falling down onto the mat!!
Shannan Lerch: Damn!!! That's a shame!!
The overhead clock counts down....
The explosive cheers rocks The Arena!! Stanley Moser unhinges the cage, but Joe is NOT moving.
Shannan Lerch: Steeltoe Joe is NOT moving!! Tek had the ladder fall from under him and he is face down on the mat...
Tek quickly gets up and.... HE IS HOLDING STEELTOE JOE'S CONTRACT!!
Zach Davis: HOLY MACKERAL!!! TEK HAS DONE IT!! TEK WON!!
Shannan Lerch: Which means Steeltoe Joe's contract...
Tek grabs Steeltoe Joe's contract and rips it up!!
Shannan Lerch: It means Joe is gone from WCF!!
Zach Davis: I don't think the crowd is pleased with the results!!
Crowd: BULLSHIT!! BULLSHIT!! BULLSHIT!! BULLSHIT!!
Shannan Lerch: Like it or not Steeltoe Joe is gone from WCF!!
Kyle Steele: The following contest is set for one fall and will be fought for the People's Championship. Introducing first, the challenger. . .
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 form 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 Steele announces him.
Kyle Steele: From the Nightmare Realm, he is Nathan von LIEBERT! And his opponent, the People Champion. . .
Clock" by Beck begins playing over the loudspeakers as the curtain parts... and out comes Kid Phantasm, his title resting on his shoulder. He slaps a few audience members' hands on his way through the arena, then slides beneath the bottom rope and into the ring. Kid Phantasm takes a quick look around the crowd... and then stares down his opponent.
Kyle Steele: From Antartica, Louisana, he stands at 6'1 and weighs 225 pounds. He is Kid PHANTASM!
The referee takes the title and holds it up to a rowdy crowd to see. But neither man notices anything but each other, their eyes locked in a staredown.
Zach Davis: Tension is just radiating off of both men. This match is going to be a crazy one.
Shannan Lerch: I wonder who is fighting in Nathan's corner. Himself or Vlad?
Zach Davis: I guess we'll find out soon enough. The title is being handed off as we speak.
Indeed the title has been handed to a stagehand, and the referee was going over the rules quickly. This takes only moments and then the bell is sounded.
DING DING DING
Neither leaps into action right off the back, instead circling each other judging each man. Phantasm notices his size advantage, so he reaches to try for a lockup, but NvL weasles out and attempts a sharp kick. But Phantasm was ready, his previous offense a feint. Phantasm catches Nathan's leg and pulls him close, straight into a forearm smash across Liebert's jaw. Dropping the leg, Phantasm runs forward for a clothesline, only to meet thin air. Kid halts in his tracks, and turns straight into an uppercut, followed by an attempted headlock take down. But Phantasm throws Nathan off.
Zach Davis: Neither man can take an advantage so far.
They circle each other, once more looking for one slip of weakness. Kid was ready to wait it out, but Nathan thought otherwise. A smirk crosses the man's face just before he spits at Kid's shoe. A normal man's reaction is to move his foot out of the way, and Kid does just that, allowing Nathan to charge forward with a chop block. Phantasm drops to his knee, and Nathan leaps up with a dropkick to the jaw to take the big man down. He leaps on him hoping for a quick victory.
Shannan Lerch: Pin attempt!
Zach Davis: The champion won't be finished from a simple dropkick.
Nathan knows this too, and he tries to wear the man down with stomps to the back of the head while he is trying to get up. Despite the barrage, Phantasm rises to his feet, and Nathan shoots the ropes, clothesline in mind. Instead he is caught in a powerslam that shakes the mat, which leads to a pin from the champion.
Zach Davis: Nathan is a fighter too.
Nathan does arch his back in pain though, but Phantasm doesn't allow him any rest. He pulls Nathan up to his feet, only to eat a forearm smash. Kid stumbles backwards, stunned, and Nathan levels him with a lariat. A pin attempt was surely possible, victory near, but Nathan is bloodthirsty. So instead of an pin he attempts a standing moonsault onto Phantasm. Instead he lands on the mat, Kid already rising to his feet after rolling out of the way.
Shannan Lerch: A pin attempt might've won the match, and yet he tried to showboat.
Zach Davis: No showboating with what Kid has planned. Just simple damage.
Phantasm pulls Nathan up by his hair, and lifts him straight up. Kid doesn't wait long before he drops, drilling Nathan's head into the mat with a brainbuster. Nathan flips onto his back, motionless, and Kid attempts the pin.
Shannan Lerch: The match continues even after that brutal brainbuster.
Kid shakes his head, but doesn't argue the count. Instead he pulls Nathan up, and puts him into an underhook with a piledriver in mind. But Nathan, with quick thinking, slams his head up north, right into the jewels of the champ. And the ref didn't see it; he only saw Nathan slipping out of a hold. Nathan pushes upward, taking Kid up and over with a back body drop, followed by an elbow drop to the throat of Kid. Instead of pulling Phantasm up, Nathan scales the top rope. Kid is on his hands and knees, trying to stand again, and Nathan launches off with a leg drop that catches Phantasm on the back of his head, driving his forehead into the mat.
Zach Davis: High flying move by Nathan might win the match.
Shannan Lerch: He is trying to win now with a pin.
Unlike Kid, Nathan questions the referee's count, getting in his face. A mistake as it allows Kid to rise to his feet. Kid taps Nathan on the shoulder, and the former champ turns straight into a kick in the gut. Kid lifts Nathan up, Ice Cap in mind, when suddenly he grunts and releases Nathan. Nathan lands on the mat and bumps into the referee, knocking him to the mat while Kid shakes his hand in pain.
Zach Davis: Referee is down on the mat.
Shannan Lerch: Look what else is on the mat. That truly is disgusting.
Shannan even pointed to what she had spotted; Rocky the rat.
Zach Davis: It seems all of Kid's hand-shaking came from a rat bite. Ouch.
Shannan Lerch: And now Kid has noticed Rocky, even though Nathan and the referee has not.
Kid stares at the rat, puzzlement on his face. How did a wrestler react when an animal found its way into the match? But it had bitten him and Kid didn't like that, so he did what any American would to a rat. He punt kicked onto the stage outside. . .
Zach Davis: What a kick! I wonder if he played soccer in high school too.
Shannan Lerch: Nathan is on his feet. I don't think he noticed what happened.
Nathan pulls the referee up, and thinks stalks behind Kid. Nathan leaps forward, putting him in an inverted facelock, but Kid slips out, and turns Nathan around. Shock is evident on Nathan's face as he is taken up into a fisherman buster. The impact is followed by a pin which Kid hoped would win him the match.
Zach Davis: Kid Phantasm retains the People's Title!
Shannan Lerch: I don't think NvL is going to be too happy once he finds out what Phantasm did to his rat...
The Lights go out in the WCF event arena in the City of Mexico. “Barton Hollow” By The Civil Wars begins to blast through the speakers as fog fills the entrance gate area which is also flickering with a neon blue to the pulse of the music. Out of the midst of the fog comes walking out, for the very last time a beat up, war torn Steeltoe Joe.
Joe Smiles to the crowd. Hes got stitches in his head and face along with medical tape everywhere you can imagine from his earlier battle with Tek. Joe seems to be keeping his word as he stays calm and keeps his composure. Joe is taking his loss as a man and walking while walking down the ramp into the ring area. Joe reaches the ring steps where he motions towards Heaven and then does a crucifix with his arms and hands. The crowd goes nuts for the beaten Steeltoe Joe. The end has finally come for the Hero of the wrestling industry, the man, the myth, the legend and Icon Steeltoe Joe.
Joe walks up the ring steps and then gingerly walks into the ring where he climbs the turnbuckle and poses one last time for the crowd. He then motions for a mic. He speaks:
Joe tries to get a word in but the fans are going crazy. There are some actually even crying as Steeltoe Joe holds the mic halfway to his mouth but then the fans start Chanting, “THANK YOU JOE! THANK YOU JOE! THANK YOU JOE!” Joe even starts to tear up a little bit but now the fans start Chanting, STJ ALL THE WAY!!! STJ ALL THE WAY!!! STJ ALL THE WAY!!! Joe finally gets a word in and says:
Steeltoe Joe: Thank you. To each and every one of you hear tonight and those watching around the world, THANK YOU.
The fans start to clap for Joe.
Steeltoe Joe: Yah know, 18 years ago when I started in this business the name Steeltoe Joe seemed laughable and nobody knew it. As I worked week in and week out, and spent years away from the family and friends I love, it was all of you who kept me company and it was all of you who made the name Steeltoe Joe a force to be reckoned with. It it wasn’t for every single one of you cheering, chanting and being here I would be just an everyday preacher named Joey doing the 9-5 or even 5-9 grind every day. Again Thank you.
You can tell Joe is trying to fight back the tears but some make their way through the pores of his eyes as he starts to speak again.
Steeltoe Joe: Yah know, if it weren’t for wrestling but mainly you, the fans of wrestling, I wouldn’t have been able to pay for the medical bills of my late wife (Joe motions and blows a kiss towards Heaven). I wouldn’t have had the courage to move on and keep pushing for better. If it wasn’t for you, then I wouldn’t my current wife and children wouldn’t have food on their table and if it weren’t for you my kids wouldn’t have even the cloths on their backs. I wouldn’t be living the American, well who am I kidding? I wouldn’t be able to live the dream of ANYBODY, even you here, the fans in MEXICO. Because of each one of you I am able to now have the home of my dreams, the truck of my dreams, the family of my dreams and now I go to the retirement of my dreams.
Joe takes off his sunglasses and throws them into the crowd.
Steeltoe Joe: We have been through one hell of an 18 year ride together, you the fans and me, Steeltoe Joe. The blood that pumped in my veins rushed because of the reaction you guys gave me. The sweat that I poured into my matches that made history was laid down because you guys gave me the determination and stamina to keep going until we picked up the one… two… three… We have been through it all. Most of the time it was a season of blessing but then sometimes we all got taken for a ride through Hell. Now because of you guys I can close this chapter of my life knowing I did it all and you helped me through it all. Now because of you Steeltoe Joe has gone from the young rookie who stumbled onto a world title, to a legend who made a mark in wrestling history, and now because of you I can go home and be happy enjoying all that you guys enabled me to be blessed with.
The fans are still in shock, some still not believing that Joe will be gone for good.
Steeltoe Joe: Be not weary in well doing, is the scripture that comes to mind right now. Because you will reap the benefits of the endurance of your labor, thank you everybody. Thank you WCF fans, Steeltoe Joe fanatics, WCF superstars in the back and thank you to all of you who are here tonight. Remember though, I never say GOODBYE, instead I like to say, “See you later.” The end of one chapter is always the beginning of another. But until we meet again I want to say, THANK YOU… COURTESY FROM, ME… STEELTOE JOE.
Joe is crying as he rolls out of the ring waving to the fans and slapping some hands. He stops for a few photo ops with some of the fans as they are all in shock and crying because Steeltoe Joe has finally left the building.
The camera pans around the Hardcore hell structure. A black cage of criss-crossed steel bars surround the ring. At the top of that cage is tied a steel chair, a kendo stick, a crutch, a pair of bolt cutters, A lead pipe, a trash can lid, a pair of brass knuckles, a long section of loggers chain, and a mysterious brown canvas bag. Above the weapons, running all around the top perimeter of the cage are coils of barbed wire. The cell looms ominously over it all, ready to welcome the two unlucky competitors into it's violent clutches.
Zach Davis: This match is a Hardcore Hell match. You'll notice the barbed wire around the top of the inner cage, that was a last minute change, requested independently by BOTH wrestlers. There is no doubt in my mind that Waylon Cash and Gein Spector want nothing more tonight than to end each other's careers, and they might both get their wish tonight.
Shannan Lerch: One thing I did want to clarify, all week long we have been calling this match an invention of Waylon Cash. He approached me today, and wanted me to make sure that the right man got the credit. This match is actually an old invention of Blake Updegraff III; Waylon's mentor, and father of Future Gods Incorporated C.E.O Blake Updegraff IV.
Zach Davis: Do you think that that may have been a dangerous strategy on Waylon's part? If B.U. 4's dad invented this match, don't you think he may have shared some secrets with Gein?
Shannan Lerch: Of course, but the man who invented this match, and knows all of it's secrets is the man who trained Waylon. I'd say they're coming in on about the same page.
Kyle Steel: This match is a Hardcore Hell Match!
The opening trumpet riff of “White Trash Renegade starts to play, and Waylon Cash steps out from behind the curtain to thunderous applause. Instead of his usual white tank top, Waylon is wearing a black “Boondox” t-shirt. Standing next to him is an attractive young woman in a black “Waylon Cahs” half shirt, and a pair of tight blue jeans. He throws a heavily taped fist in the air, and the crowd cheers louder.
Shannan Lerch: I am being told that the woman by his side is his new manager, and her name is Roxxane Savage.
Zach Davis: Whoever she is, I am already a big fan!
Kyle Steel: Now approaching the ring, being accompanied by Roxxane Savage, standing six feet, five inches tall, and weighing in at two hundred and thirty pounds, Waylon Cash!
Waylon slowly steps through the door of the cell, as Roxxy stays outside. The wrestle makes his way around the outside of the ring. Reaching up, Waylon shakes the bars, testing the cage.
Shannan Lerch: The name sure does fit this hellish structure.
Zach Davis: Indeed, ya gotta wonder if Waylon or Gein are having second thoughts.
Once Waylon makes his way around the ring, he climbs the steel steps, and enters the inner cage. He smiles as his eyes caress the barbed wire around the top of the enclosure. Suddenly his music stops.
Zach Davis: We've been told that those nine weapons are supposed to represent the nine circles of hell, as depicted in Dante's inferno.
Shannan Lerch: Yeah, but this match is going to be about one specific sin: Wrath!
“I Know” by David Lynch plays over the P.A. System. Gein Spector slowly walks out onto the entrance ramp. Loud booing spews from the crowd, as a small smirk appears on Spector's face. Instead of his usual ring gear, Gein is dressed in a pair of jeans, and a black, long sleeved t-shirt. His fists are also heavily taped up, and a pair of white sneakers adorns his feet.
Kyle Steel: And introducing his opponent, weighing in at two hundred and forty five pounds, standing six feet two inches tall, Gein Spector!
Zach Davis: Now Gein has a fifteen pound weight advantage here, but Cash has the obvious height and reach advantage.
Shannan Lerch: I would say we're in for one hell of a match-up Zach.
Gein's eyes never leave Waylon as he makes his way down to the ring. The ref does the best he can to keep the two wrestlers in opposite corners as Gein climbs into the cage. Once the ref signals for the bell, both men sprint to the center of the ring and start trading punches. Gein whips Waylon into the ropes, and goes for a lariat, but Waylon ducks it, bounces off the opposite ropes, and this Gein with a high cross body block. With both men on the ground, Waylon dives for Gein, and starts pummeling his face with right hands.
Zach Davis: Neither man bothering to start slow and measure their opponent, this is about inflicting pain.
Slowly Gein manages to wrestle himself away from Waylon's grasp, and jumps to his feet. Waylon does likewise, and the two men stare at each other for a moment.
Zach Davis: and now we have a stand off, neither men wanting to make a mistake and give up and advantage on their opponent.
Shannan Lerch: Because if they do that, they know they're as good as dead.
As if on cue, both men spin around, and run towards opposite walls of the cage. Waylon rips a steel chair down from it's spot, while Spector grabs the lead pipe. They sprint towards each other, and Gein goes for a big overhand blow with his weapon. Cash uses the chair to block a few shots from Gein, before kicking him in the gut. Spector drops the pipe, and Waylon comes down hard on his back with a chair shot. Gein stumbles, but does not drop. Waylon bounces off the ropes, and tries to hit Gein with a chair assisted Midwest Nail, but Gein spins out of the way, and hits Waylon with a neckbreaker. Quickly Gein gets to his feet, and begins to kick at Waylon's ribs.
Zach Davis: Waylon trying to send a message, trying to hit Gein with his own finisher early on, but Spector is making him pay for it.
Gein rolls Waylon over to the cage wall, and places the sole of his boot against the back of his opponent's neck. Grabbing the top rope, Gein smashes Waylon's face into the solid steel bars. With a smile on his face, Spector keep the pressure on for a little bit before Waylon squirms out enough to grab Gein's waistband, and yank him head first into the cage. Spector stumbles backwards, and Waylon wastes no time in diving on him. He tackles Gein to the ground, and drops a couple knees on his chest. Cash quickly lifts his opponent, and tosses him into one of the cage walls. The metal clatters, and the crowd cheers as Gein crumbles to the mat. Waylon picks him back up, and throws him into the opposite wall. Gein this the cage door, and tumbles down the steel steps to the concrete.
Zach Davis: The cage door has been opened for the first time in this match.
Shannan Lerch: And Gein took quite the spill. He's slow to get up.
While Gein is recovering, Waylon climbs the ropes, and pulls down the brass knuckles from their spot at the top of the cage. He stands in the center of the ring, and screams at Spector to get back inside as he slips the fingers of his right hand into the weapon. Gein slowly gets to his feet, and makes his way back into the ring. Once he is in, Gein runs at Waylon, and swings with a lariat. Cash ducks it, and both men spin around, but Waylon is faster, and this Gein with a few armored right hands.
Zach Davis: Cash laying into Gein's ribs with those brass knucks!
Shannan Lerch: He knows that that not only hurts, but if he can break a rib or two, it will make it difficult for Spector to breath.
Waylon bounces off the ropes, and gets hit with a kick to the gut. Gein follows up with a quick DDT. Spector pauses to catch his breath, as Waylon lays on the mat. Gettign to his feet, Gein grabs the kendo stick off of the mat, and swings it around in the air with a smile on his face. Waylon slowly tries to get up, but is met with a stiff cane shot to the back. Cash stumbles forward, and grabs onto the cage wall to keep himself upright. Gein reels back, and hits him with another nasty shot across the shoulder blades. Waylon screams in pain, but spins around and nails Gein with a nasty headbutt. Spector stumbles backwards, and gets hit with a big right hand from Cash. Gein shakes it off, and quickly brings the kendo stick down on top of Waylon's head.
Zach Davis: My god! A nasty shot from Gein sends Waylon to the ground!
Gein tosses the cane aside, and climbs the closest wall. Once he reaches the top, he rips down the long section of logger's chain. He drops to the mat, as Waylon stands up. Spector wastes no time in wrapping the chain round Waylon's throat, and wrenching back.
Shannan Lerch: He's trying to choke the life out of his opponent!
Zach Davis: And the referee can only look on.
Waylon's face begins to turn a deep red as he struggles to escape from the vicious choke. In desperation, Waylon kicks his leg forward, and quickly brings it back between Spector's legs. Gein's grip loosens, and Waylon is able to escape as his opponent falls to the ground.
Shannan Lerch: That's not something you see from Waylon very often.
Zach Davis: Desperate times call for desperate measures.
Shannan Lerch: Really? And when the going gets tough, do the tough get going? Any other ancient cliches you'd like to throw at us?
Waylon lifts Gein up, and throws him, face first, into one of the cage walls. When Spector comes back, a trickle of blood is flowing down his forehead. Waylon grabs him, and hits him with a reverse DDT onto the steel chair. With Gein on the ground, Waylon scrambles over to the door of the cage, and climbs down the steps. He rusn to the apron, and begins rummaging around underneath.
Zach Davis: What could he possibly want that isn't tied to the top of that cage?
Zach's question is answered when Waylon slides a tall, metal ladder out from under the ring. With a smile on his face, he forces it through the doorway, and climbs in behind it. Gein is still on the ground recovering, so Waylon lifts the ladder up, and brings it down horizontally onto his opponent. He does it again, but this time he leaves the ladder on top of Gein, and he climbs the nearest cage wall. Toward sht etop, Waylon grabs in between two strands of barbed wire, and jumps off with a moonsault. Gein manages to throw the ladder upward at the last second, sending it crashing into the face of Waylon Cash.
Zach Davis: My god! I think Waylon just had a tooth or two knocked out!
A close up reveals that Waylon is indeed missing a tooth. Blood begins to flow from his lip as he lays on the ground. Gein lays there for a moment too, but he is the first to rise. He slowly makes his way up on wall, and grabs the bolt cutters.
Shannan Lerch: What is he gonna do with those?
Zach Davis: why are they even there?
Gein reaches up with the bolt cutters, and snips loose a long section of barbed wire, tearing it down from the top of the cage.
Zach and Shannan: Oh.
He walks over to Waylon, and runs the barbed wire back and forth across his forehead, opening up a number of gashes. Blood drips down Waylons face as Gein wraps the barbed wire around his fist. He bring the fist down on Waylon's forehead a few times, opening him up even more. Spector screams in Cash's face, before throwing him to the mat.
Zach Davis: He just screamed “How do you like that, you murderer?”
Shannan Lerch: I have never seen either of these men more angry than they are right now.
Gein looks around for a minute, before grabbing the length of logger's chain. He swings it around, and brigns it down across Waylon's back. Waylon screams out in pain, and a smile creeps across Gein's face as he brings the chain down once again, like a whip. Spector suddenly look at the top of the cage, and drops the chain, before climbing up and grabbing the brown, canvas bag. He smiles wide as he takes a look at the contents, and dumps roughly two thousand thumb tacks onto the mat. Seeing this, Waylon scrambles for the door, and throws himself outside, to the ground. Gein takes chase, but Waylon reaches under the ring, and removes a small step ladder. He throws it at Gein, and nail him in the mouth, sending him staggering backwards.
Zach Davis: Waylon doing everything he can to avoid the offense of Gein Spector.
Waylon reaches under the ring again, and produces a second step ladder. This one, he uses to help himself up. Gein recovers from the first shot, and sprints at Waylon, who ducks down, and this him with a back body drop into the mesh cell wall. Gein falls to the concrete, and Waylon grabs the first step ladder, throwing both of them into the cage. Waylon reaches under the ring one more time, and searches for a few minutes. He gets frustrated, throwing anything he can out form under the ring. Finally, he finds what he si looking for. He produces a small bottle of lighter fluid, and slides into the ring, leaving Gein outside.
Zach Davis: Waylon has a plan here, I just have no clue what it is.
Waylon sets up one step ladder in the center of the ring, and sets the other one up about six feet away, as Gein begins to rise to his feet outside the cage. As Waylon lays the big ladder across the two smaller ones, Gein begins to climb the outside of the cage.
Zach Davis: Is he insane?
Shannan Lerch: He might be.
Waylon sees him climbing, and starts climbing the inside wall to meet him. They reach the top at the same time, and Waylon grabs Gein by the neck, dragging him over the top. Gein gets tangled in the barbed wire, which scrapes itself across his skin, shredding his shirt. Gein dangles upside down from the cage, the barbed wire tightening around his leg, and waist. Waylon drops down, and contemplates his next move.
Zach Davis: The blood is rushing to Gein's head now. This could get very dangerous, very quickly, Gein is dangling above the pile of thumbtacks he created.
Waylon suddenly thinks of something, and begisn to climb the cage. He does it slowly, his body fighting against him. Gein brings himself to a seated position, and tries, unsuccessfully, to untangle himself from the barbed wire. Waylon reaches the top, and grabs the top of the cell, trying to stabilize himself. He looks down for a second, before jumping off, and hitting Gein with a double stomp to the chest. This dislodges him,and they fall to the ground. Waylon lands feet first on Gein, who lands back first on the thumbtacks. Waylon crumbles to the ground, but avoids the tacks that are now pinning Gein's shredded shirt to his back.
Zach Davis: This is absolutely insane!
It takes a while, but Waylon stands up, and drags Gein over the the ladder contraption he set up earlier. He lays him on top of the big ladder, and turns around. He slowly climbs the turnbuckle, and the fans begin to shake the arena. Cash doesn't see, But Gein gingerly rolls off the ladder, and grabs the yellow bottle of lighter fluid. As Waylon climbs, Gein sprays down the top ladder as much as he can, and removes a lighter from his jeans.
Shannan Lerch: Good lord.
Sparkign the flame, Gein leans down, and sets the ladder ablaze. Flames shoot upward, completely unbeknownst to Waylon. Gein climbs the cage quickly, and grabs Waylon, setting him up for a super powerbomb. Waylon delivers a few punches to Geins head, and sits himself on Spector's shoulders before hitting him with a hurricarana. Gein flies off the top, and lands right on the flaming ladder, breaking it in half. It takes Waylon a minute, but he crawls over to Gein, and rolls him up.
He rolls off of Gein as EMTs rush in to spray both men, and the ladder down with fire extinguishers.
Kyle Steel: Your winner, Waylon Cash!
Roxxy runs in with tears in her eyes, and drops to her knees next to Waylon's body. She holds his head in her hands as he smiles at her. It takes a minute, but she helps Waylon to his feet. The two stand together, and she helps him climb out of the ring as the crowd applauds. Gein lays in the center of the ring, as Roxxy supports Waylon down the stairs, and out of the cell door. They begins their journey up the ramp, when suddenly, Blake Updegraff IV, and Benjamin Atreyu run run down to meet them. Blake grabs Roxxy, wrenching her away from Waylon, and holding her hands behind her back. Benjy grabs Waylon, and sets the man's head between his knees, before flipping him up onto his shoulders, and slamming him down onto the steel ramp with a vicious power bomb.
Zach Davis: Unbelievable! Benjamin Atreyu attacking an already injured Waylon Cash, and Blake is making Roxxy watch it! This is disgusting!
The entire security staff comes out, and drags Blake and Benjy away from Waylon. Tears stream down Roxxy's face as the EMTs evaluate him, and then slowly load him onto a stretcher. They wheel him to the back as Waylon's sobbing manager follows.
Shannan Lerch: For a brief moment I thought we saw Waylon Cash get his revenge, finally, here tonight. But that was short lived, to say the least... disgusting.
Zach Davis: Sweet Georgia-Brown! What a night, Shannan! It’s off the hizzle!
Shannan Lerch: For shizzle! I’m hype as a mofo!
Zach Davis: Next up on the card, we’ve got Oblivion versus FPV! In a Dr.Heill’s Basement Brawl Match! Oh! My! Gawd!
Shannan Lerch: Those two are crazy! They’ll fit right in with Dr.Heill’s inmates!
Zach Davis: Here comes the live feed from Heill’s institute!
The WCF-Tron flickers to the live feed. Dr. Heill is standing in the middle of a cramped, archaic laboratory. Steel operating tables and a plethora of scientific equipment riddle the room.
Dr.Heill: Are we live? Can you hear me, Wcf?
The crowd roars.
Zach Davis: We’re getting ya loud and clear, Heill!
Dr.Heill: Beautiful! Ha!
Dr,Heill motions to someone off camera and two darkened steel-cages are pushed into the frame. Heill produces a small hand-held radio and presses play. Ominous red light beams down onto the cage to his left.
"What's Up, People?" plays out of Heill’s shitty radio. The door of the cage zips open and FPV erupts out of it.
The crowd roars to life, back in the WcF arena. FPV screams maniacally into the camera lens.
Crowd: FPV! FPV! FPV!
Shannan Lerch: Damn, Zach! FPV looks like he’s out of his goddamned mind!
FPV leaps onto one of the steel tables and sits down into lotus position. He waits for the Oblivion to be released.
Dr.Heill nods to FPV and motions largely to the second darkened cage. He presses play on the small boombox.
The lights go out. Oblivion by Mastodon begins to play, as the thunderous combination of the guitars, bass, and drums eek out of the thin $20 speakers.
I flew beyond the sun before it was time
Falling from grace cause I've been away too long
Recorded 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 crowd, back in the WcF Arena lays out a mixture of cheers and boo, more cheers than boos. The crowd stands onto their feet and rush towards the security railings, reaching out to the WcF-Tron with eager hands.
The door of the cage zips open.
Oblivion slowly slinks out of it, low to the ground. The arena explodes with cheers and some boos. Oblivion has it's arms extended outward, with it's index fingers pointing out. Oblivion slowly stands up, with it's arms extended outward. IT pops IT's neck, Oblivion holds IT's arms outward. Oblivion growls into the lens of the camera.
Crowd: Oblivion! Oblivion! Oblivion!
Zach Davis: Oh shit! Oblivion is a damned monster, yo! Look at that beast!
Shannan Lerch: BEEEEAAAST!
Zach Davis: Damn, girl! You scary!
Oblivion pulls up his fighting stance and eyes FPV, who is still holding his position atop one of the steel operating tables.
Dr.Heill performs a quick series of arm thrusts.
Dr.Heill: Let’s get it on!
Oblivion rushes and kicks the shit out of the table that FPV is sitting on. Fpv is slung backward, but manages to rebound off a bank of security monitors and front-flip expertly to his feet.
Oblivion roars at FPV and FPV roars right back at him. Oblivion lurches at FPV with a heavy right cross, but FPV ducks it and socks Oblivion in the ribs with a quick combination of punches. Oblivion blasts FPV with a devastating backhand and delivers a kick directly into FPV’s chest. Frank is sent backward into the wall of monitors. Oblivion sprints and leaps at FPV, but FPV rolls out of the way, causing Oblivion to crash head first into the electronics. Sparks and shattering glass ensue.
Zach Davis: Holy smokes! They’re gonna kill themselves in there!
FPV grabs a steel tray off of a counter and slams it against the back of Oblivion. Oblivion rolls over, catching a second strike from the tray with his face. Oblivion fires a blind kick from the ground and it spikes the steel tray into FPV’s face.
Zach Davis: Oblivion is back to his feet!
Oblivion snatches one of the small televisions from the wall and hurls it. It crashes into Fpv’s chest. FPV stumbles backward from the impact and is careened across the head by a second hurdling television. FPV collapses to the concrete floor and blood pours out of a pretty severe gash above his hairline. Oblivion yanks another tv off the wall and walks over to the fallen FPV. Oblivion holds the monitor above his head as he stands above the fallen, seemingly passed out, FPV.
Shannan Lerch: No! Stop this Heill!
Zach Davis: Oblivion’s looking to finish this by smashing FPV’s head open!
Oblivion spikes the monitor down, but FPV rolls out of the way. The tv shatters on the floor and FPV pushes himself back to his feet. Frank tears into Oblivion with a flurry of strikes. FPV lands an uppercut that catches Oblivion fantastically. Oblivion grabs FPV and tries to DDT him, but FPV pounds a knee into Oblivions groin, stopping the grapple. FPV manages to lift Oblivion and FlapJack him down to the concrete. FPV guides Oblivion back to his feet and immediately spikes him down with a fresh DDT.
Zach Davis: DDT on bare concrete! Oblivion’s brain is fustigated!
Shannan Lerch: Not that it wasn’t in the first place!
Fpv pins Oblivion!
Dr.Heill kneels and counts the pin.
Zach Davis: Oblivion ain’t done!
Oblivion shoves FPV off himself and gets to his feet. FPV assaults Oblivion with another barrage of strikes, but Oblivion simply head-butts the hell out of him! FPV is sent stumbling backward and Oblivion follows it up with a devastating Clothesline! Oblivion lifts FPV and Belly-to-Belly Suplexes him onto a steel table. Oblivion climbs onto the table with FPV and lifts him to his feet.
Zach Davis: Oblivion has FPV up in a T-Bone Suplex!
Oblivion slings FPV down to the concrete floor below with a grotesque slam. The impact of flesh against concrete is sickening! Both Oblivion and FPV are motionless.
Dr.Heill checks their pulses and gives a quick thumbs up to the camera. Oblivion is the first to show signs of life and he muscles himself back to his feet. He pins FPV and Heill makes the count.
Zach Davis: FPV kicked out! From that! He’s a helluva man, Shannan!
Shannan Lerch: BEEEAAAST!
Oblivion lifts FPV, but FPV breaks away from him. FPV rocks Oblivion backward with a Spinning-Elbow and without missing a beat, snatches a glass beaker from the counter and swipes it across Oblivion’s masked face. The glass shatters gloriously.
Shannan Lerch: FPV shattered that glass right into Oblivion’s eyes! Blood is rippling out of Oblivion’s face! It’s disgusting!
Oblivion swings is fists blindly. FPV easily dodges the vicious strikes. FPV steps back and rockets a devastating Super-Kick right into Oblivions face.
Crowd: Boom! Headshot!
Oblivion is shot backward by the impact and crashes through a large plate-glass window and into another lab room. FPV steps through the busted window and lifts Oblivion up and out of the shards of glass. FPV begins to yank on Oblivion’s mask, ripping a wide portion down. A disgusting patch of infected flesh, that is Stephan Johnson’s Face, is revealed. Oblivion’s damaged right eye is filled with a milky white haze. A sea of scars, blood, sores and general disfigurement is radiated from under the torn mask. FPV’s reaction is acute disgust.
Zach Davis: I’m not sure FPV was ready to see that shit!
FPV is compelled backward by the immediate shock this visual revelation. Oblivion's eyes roll back into his head and he spews out a cloud of Blue Mist Haze. FPV drops to his knee and clutches his blue-stained face. Oblivion grabs FPV by pinching the eye-socket of his skull and lifts him to his feet. FPV spins his way out of it and reconnects another impactful Spinning Elbow.
FPV quickly muscles Oblivion into a PileDriver. FPV somehow leaps with Oblivion and spikes his head down into the pile of glass. Blood splatters like a cheap, over the top horror movie.
Zach Davis: Jumping Piledriver onto glass and concrete! This is over! That’s it!
FPV rolls Oblivion over and makes the pin. Dr.Heill kneels and counts it.
Shannan Lerch: Oblivion kicked out of that! I can’t believe it!
FPV shouts at Heill, slapping his hands together and complaining of a slow count. Heill makes a condescending crying motion to FPV. Oblivion pushes himself back to his feet. FPV spins a round house into Oblivion, but Oblivion catches him in mid-air and counters the kick with a lightning quick Capture-Suplex. Oblivion pulls some equipment off the wall. FPV makes it to his feet just in time to be blasted by the metal casing of a defibrillation unit. Oblivion smashes the device down onto FPV’s chest over and over. Oblivion drops the device and lifts FPV to his feet. Oblivion whips FPV around and lights him up with a Tilt-A-Whirl Backbreaker, then immediately locks FPV into an Indian-Deathlock. FPV yells in acute anger and pain. Oblivion wrenches the maneuver back, putting insurmountable pressure on FPV’s spine.
Shannan Lerch: He’s gonna break FPV’s back!
FPV reaches out in desperation and grabs the paddles of the defibrillator. The machine automatically kicks on and rev’s itself to full charge. FPV spins himself and punches the paddles into Oblivion’s back. The impact explodes a shower of sparks as Oblivion is lit up by the hundreds of volts. Both FPV and Oblivion absorb the bursts of electricity. The machine pulses three times and Oblivion is blown off FPV and slumps to the floor.
Zach Davis: Oh my Jesum!
Crowd: FPV! FPV! FPV!
Smoke ripples off Oblivion’s back as FPV makes it to his feet. FPV lifts Oblivion.
Zach Davis: FPV going for the Duster! No! Oblivion reverses! Dragon Suplex! Oblivion reversed the Duster into a Dragon Suplex! Oblivion makes the pin!
Shannan Lerch: Woo! FPV’s still in it!
Oblivion roars in anger and lifts FPV. He slings FPV onto a steel table and climbs up with him. Oblivion picks FPV up, but FPV laces into him with a striking combination!
Zach Davis: FPV is giving it all he’s got! Leaving nothing in the tank!
FPV lifts Oblivion into a Vertical-Suplex, leaps off the table and pounds it down with an expertly placed leg drop! Oblivion’s head shatters the concrete. The floor crumbles and gives way! Oblivion and FPV disappear as they fall through the substantial hole! The cameraman follows Dr.Heill as he jumps down into the hole. They find Oblivion and FPV lambasting each other with haymakers inside another laboratory. The corpses of Greenfever, Noir and Switches the Clown can be seen, floating in giant tubes near the back.
Zach Davis: These two absolutely hate each other! Neither wants to let this go!
Dr.Heill: No! Get the fuck out of here! Not in here!
Heill is screaming at the combatants, but they ignore him thoroughly by continuing their personal war.
Oblivion slings FPV face first against the translucent tombs, FPV’s face blood smearing against the rounded glass.
Dr.Heill: No! Get out! Get away from them.
Heill lurches out and grabs Oblivion’s shoulder. Oblivion turns and bitch slaps him hard. Heill is spun to the concrete by the impact.
Oblivion roars and sprints at the dazed FPV. He leaps into a spear and drills FPV against the glass. The glass encasing the corpse of Switches the Clown shatters, spilling gallons upon gallons of liquid onto the floor. Dr.Heill screams from his vantage point on the floor. The liquid washes up to him. Switches’ red clown-nose surfs into view on a tide of failure.
Oblivion yanks the decomposing corpse of the clown up and off of FPV. Oblivion uses the exploded clown’s corpse to bludgeon FPV. -Simply slamming the torso down onto him over and over. Oblivion finally slings Switches to the ground and lifts FPV.
Zach Davis: Oblivion lifts FPV for the 5150!
Oblivion knocks FPV’s legs off his shoulders to grind him down to a disgusting Stunner, but FPV leaps out of it, just in time! FPV rocks Oblivion across the jaw with a uppercut combination.
Zach Davis: FPV reversed Oblivion’s Soultaker!
FPV deftly hops backward and jettisons a sickening Superkick right between Oblivion’s eyes.
Crowd: Boom! Headshot!
Oblivion stumbles backward and into Greenfever’s glass casket.
FPV quickly lines up another and spikes a deadly HeadShot-Superkick into Oblivion’s face.
Crowd: Boom! Headshot!
Oblivion’s head rocks back and he crumples to the floor immediately. FPV pins Oblivion in front of the remaining tubes.
Zach Davis: I think Oblivion got knocked out! He’s not moving!
Dr.Heill scrambles across the floor and counts the pin by FPV, making sure to invoke the fast_count.exe function.
Zach Davis: Frank’s done it! FPV defeated Oblivion! Oh mah GAWD!
Dr.Heill raises FPV’s arm in victory.
Shannan Lerch: What a disgusting match, Zach! Dead clowns, Zach! Did you see that!?
Zach Davis: I sure did, Shanna Banana! These guys are Beasts!
Shannan Lerch: BEEEEEEAAASTS!
Once again, four individuals are gathered in the Big Dick Superstars’ locker room. Only Johnny Reb is absent – no one has seen him since Haruna passed out in an attempt to read his mind. Kira himself looks a little worse for the wear, following the match for the International Title, though his visage is all concern for his sister. Awake now, she accepts a cup of ice-cold water with trembling hands. On the bench, Chad Evans is lacing up his boots, clearly nonplussed with this whole situation.
Chad Evans: Ok, where the fuck is Reb? It’s not like him to just take off like that. And is somebody going to explain what all that mumbo-jumbo was about? Is this some weird ninja thing?
Sakazaki, once assured that the young woman is all right, shakes his head.
Kira Sakazaki: Not exactly. Maybe this would be simpler if I let her explain…
And she does, in rapid Japanese, uncomfortable with English in this particular instance. Some of the concepts are too complex to express in a language not her own. Sakazaki listens intently, and begins to translate for the Chad Dogg’s benefit.
Kira Sakazaki: She says she saw a…different world. Not this one, but like it. Removed from us in…time. A future world. That’s where – when – he comes from. This is not the only time period he has visited. He’s older than he should be. She saw him, in that car…
Chad Evans: That busted ass old Ranchero he’s always working on lately? What does that have to do with anything?
Kira Sakazaki: It is not what it seems. That car is the key. It’s how he gets from place to place, time to time… I don’t understand it, but it’s what Haruna saw. She also saw his plan. Not all of it, but enough. He’s the one who attacked the real Johnny Reb after the first Trios match. He took him away someplace, but she couldn’t see where.
Without warning, the locker room door bursts open and The Inveterate Confederate himself walks in.
Johnny Reb: See? I told y’all I’d be back…before… What?
Four pairs of eyes are turned toward him in identical accusatory stares.
Chad Evans: Is it true? Are you some kind of Terminator-Johnny Reb sent from the future?
Johnny’s face tries to assume a look of perplexity, but fails miserably and winds up looking furtive and guilty.
Johnny Reb: I, uh… ain’t got no idea what… Aw, hell. Look, I ain’t never been real good at lyin’. No, I’m not a killer robot, or a cyborg, or nothin’ like that. I’m me… just a few years ahead. I’ll explain later. We’re up soon.
In a flash, Chad Evans is up and across the room, one boot still half-laced; he gets in Reb’s face with a snarl.
Chad Evans: You’ll explain NOW. I’m not getting in that ring with someone I can’t trust.
Johnny Reb: Whoa, now… hold on. Ya trusted me this long, didn’t ya? We got this far together. I ain’t gonna let ya down now.
Chad Evans: Not the point, Reb. You’ve been pretending to be our teammate – our friend – these last three weeks…
Johnny Reb: An’ nothin’s changed. Except we’re in the Trios Final. After we show ol’ Gravedigger an’ them girls they AIN’T better’n us, we get a chance to change history. To make this a better world…later. To prevent the future that you, yourself, foresaw.
Chad Evans: Where’s the REAL Johnny Reb?
Johnny Reb: Safe enough for now. As soon as this is all over with, I’ll bring him back an’ leave y’all to your business. But not before.
Chad Evans: I don’t see that you’ve left us much of a choice.
There’s a hint of bitterness in Chad’s tone; he doesn’t like this one bit, being outmaneuvered. He is about to argue again, when someone knocks on the door, and a voice calls out “Big Dicks, you’re up next!” Chad glances to Kira, who gives him a shrug. His gaze locks onto Johnny’s. This time, Reb doesn’t turn away.
Chad Evans: This. Isn’t. Over.
Zach Davis: Well here we go Shannan! The final match up of the Trios Cup Tournament!
Shannan Lerch: Team Better then You verse The Dick Superstars.
Zach Davis: I’m sure you would be the Authority, wouldn’t you?
Shannan Lerch: Apparently not from what I’ve heard going around the locker room about you, Zach.
Zach Davis: Pain in my ass.
Shannan Lerch: You wish.
The opening strains of "Today I Woke To The Rain Of Blood" by Combichrist filter through the PA system. The standard arena lighting is replaced by a flickering strobe effect that fills the arena as the music picks up with a thumping bass beat. The entrance way is illuminated by a green neon glow and the first one out from the back is King Jimmy Dean! King Jimmy draws a loud cheer from the crowd as he holds his gold and diamond scepter high in the air, ready for action. The cheers grow louder as Johnny Reb, Chad Evans and Kira Sakazaki appear atop the ramp, taking their place next to Jimmy. The quartet of Big Dick Superstars triumphantly raise their arms into the air and then gesture thusly toward their crotches, sending the thousands of females in attendance into a collective squeal of orgasmic bliss that temporarily drowns out the music. Jimmy leads his troops down to the ring and walks up the ring steps to the apron. Jimmy smiles and waves out to the fans, while the Big Dicks hop onto the apron and flip over the top rope in unison. Jimmy climbs through the ropes and each man takes a corner of the ring, climbing onto the turnbuckles and signaling to the fans that it's time for some Big Dick Action!
Shannan Lerch: Chad Evens, Kira Sakazaki and Former World Champion, Johnny Reb! All of them in the ring and all of them ready for a fight!
The vocals of Ayria Adams's No Duh serenade over the P.A. system as The Awesomness herself makes her way out from behind the curtains. The moment she emerges, the crowd erupts in rage induced fury, throwing their perishables in her general direction. Security tries extra hard to hold back the crowd as some brave souls lean over the railing to give Ayria an earful. Adams spreads her arms spread eagle-like with a facial expression that oozes confidence and awesomeness as she says to the camera, "They love me, they really really love me."
Gingerly making her way down to the ring with her Alaskan swag, she takes time to talk trash with some of the occupants in the front row. A select few loyal fans pay credence to Ayria's Awesomness, but she ignores them all the same. As usual someone reaches out to touch her but she evades their glancing touch and stares them down before continuing her trot to the squared circle. Upon arrival she slides into the ring, prances around in her best Muhammad Ali impression before spinning around three times with her arms out stretched before dropping down to one knee and flexing.
The people detested her, the little kids booed at the to top of their tiny lungs. Adults threw up their middle fingers as the juvenile ones simply gave her a thumbs down.
As the music died down Ayria jumps up on the turnbuckles to face the crowd, taunting them to elevate their hate.
The lights go out as a spotlight centers on stage. Piano chords begin a haunting melody, accompanied by heavy drum beats. The crowd begins to boo MASSIVELY as the video wall displays the words THE ONLY ONE.
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 onto the stage. She is greeted with deafening boos and soaks them all in, as if she enjoyed the crowd's hatred. She arrogantly swaggers towards the ring and steps inside. Pyros now shoot off from the ring posts and Sarah stands in the center of the ring, posing, almost as if for her own amusement as the crowd's boos become even LOUDER
Zach Davis: here comes The second half of the WCF tag team champions!
Shannan Lerch: They are potentially looking at a very lethal combination in any one of the BDS, IF they happen to pick up the win here tonight.
Zach Davis: I’m sure that neither Adams or Twilight have any intention of that happening.
The lights go out. They stay off for about 15 seconds or so before "Change" by Deftones starts playing throughout the arena. A spotlight hits the entranceway and out from the back walks Gravedigger, escorted by Adrian and JJ.
The crowd boos heavily and the trio stops on top of the ramp as Gravedigger looks around smiling. They then walk down the ramp and over to the ring steps. Adrian walks over to the side of the ring, reaches up and pulls himself up onto the apron with one of the ropes and then climbs into the ring. Gravedigger climbs the steps first and turns to JJ, pulling up the middle rope and stepping down on the bottom one, as she steps through the gap into the ring.
Gravedigger steps through the top and middle rope and walks over to one of the turnbuckles and stands on the middle pad and holds the hardcore belt high over his head as the crowd rains boos down upon him.
Shannan Lerch: Gravedigger, the three time world champion, looking to make the pin fall I’m sure and win his way to yet another world title. Here it is, it all comes down to this!
The ref takes good care to gain official control in this match before it begins as he squares everyone away till Gravedigger and Johnny Reb are standing across the ring from one another.
Zach Davis: We have our opening opponents.
Gravedigger and Reb lock up as Reb gets the go behind into a school boy but gravedigger powers out of right away as Reb launches back at him with a superman punch.

Reb goes to take a swing but Adams hits him with a trio of Dragon screws which situates them in the middle of the ring. Adams goes for that rocket launcher kick but reb steps into it and spine busters Adams to the mat before making the tag to kira!
Adams gets up as she walks into a judo throw by Kira then a Enzuguri !He picks up adams and goes to whip her into the turnbuckle but its Reversed and Kiras in the turnbuckle, back behind enemy lines! Adams runs..
DOUBLE KNEE ATTACK !!
Kira falls to the ground as Adams puts him into a kemora arm lock. Evens and Reb argue with the ref about thte legitimacy of the hold as Twilight grabs Kira and wish bones him on the steel post. Gravedigger joines her as they each grab a leg and hyper extend each of them as Kira Screams in pain but his pride keeps him from tapping. Twilight and Gravedigger quickly get back to the apron as the ref turns around to call Kiras positioning a rope break and Adams breaks the hold at one.
Zach Davis: A little unfair play by Team Better Then You.
Shannan Lerch: They are displaying dominance, deal with it.
Adams drags Kira out of the corner and hits inverted leg stop, The Egg Scramber!

Shannan Lerch: Kira kicks out of that mugging!
Zach Davis: I’m not sure how much longer Chad an Reb can take it.

Shannan Lerch: Tag to Gravedigger!
Zach Davis: .. Great…
Gravedigger hit’s the ring and locks in a camel clutch to Kira as clips of Gravediggers accomplishments over the years begin to play on the big screen
Shannan Lerch: They really are Better then everyone else! Who else can torment their opponents with their accomplishments, the way that Gravedigger can?

Zach Davis: Things are looking good for team Better Than You-
Until all of a sudden, she's met with a kick to the back of her knee. She drops, and is then met with another stiff kick right to her face.
Shannan Lerch: Uh.
Zach Davis: GEKIDO!?
Quickly, while Sarah is holding her head in pain, GEKIDO stands tall. He pulls off his mask to reveal...
Shannan Lerch: JAY WILLIAMS!?
Zach Davis: JAY WILLIAMS IS BACK! AND HE JUST ATTACKED SARAH TWILIGHT!
"Know who I am now, bitch!?" mouths Jay Williams as he drops out of the ring and heads back through the crowd. Meanwhile, not even noticing what has happened, Evans pulls Twilight in and hits her with a Package Piledriver.
Shannan Lerch: Boudleberry Bounce!
Evans pins Twilight, hooking the leg!
Zach Davis: ITS OVER!
Shannan Lerch: THE BIG DICK SUPERSTARS HAVE WON THE TRIOS CUP TOURNAMENT!
As Sakazaki and Reb reenter the ring, the three are handed a gigantic gold trophy from the Mexican legend Machete, Danny Trejo, himself. They celebrate, holding it up high.
Zach Davis: Chad Evans will be granted a World Title shot, while Johnny Reb and Kira Sakazaki have earned the right to go for Tag Team gold!
Shannan Lerch: Things sure did just get interesting.
Gravedigger stands on the outside of the ring fuming over his team’s loss when “John” by Lil Wayne hits the speakers. Kira, Reb and Chad Dogg stop celebrating in the ring and everyone looks towards the entryway.
Zach Davis: What the?
Shannan Lerch: Whose music is that? I don’t even recognize it…NO WAY!!
After a few seconds, two large men walk out from the back, both standing at about 7 feet tall. They look exactly alike.
Zach Davis: Is that Bishop and Priest?!
Shannan Lerch: It is! Gravedigger’s longtime friends and members of The Dark Side are here!
Bishop and Priest slowly make their way down towards the ring. Johnny Reb, Chad Evans and Kira Sakazaki all stand in the ring ready for a fight. Gravedigger grins and glances up into the ring at the winners of the Trios Cup tournament.
Shannan Lerch: Uh oh, I don’t like that look. It looks like the Trios Cup winners might not be celebrating for long. Gravedigger, Adrian, Bishop and Priest aren’t going to allow it.
Sarah Twilight, still holding her head in pain, and Ayria Adams grab their tag titles and start walking around ringside. They head toward the ramp and as they reach Bishop and Priest, they go to step around them, but the twins step to the side and block them. Sarah and Ayria step the other way, but they are blocked from leaving again.
Zach Davis: What have we got going on here?
Ayria starts mouthing off at Bishop who palms her face and shoves her backwards, head over heels. Sarah gets pissed but is attacked from behind by Gravedigger! Adrian comes up and joins the other three as they start attacking and laying boots to both Sarah Twilight and Ayria Adams.
Shannan Lerch: What the hell?! Looks like Bishop and Priest didn’t like to see Gravedigger lose their match. Gravedigger and Adrian had no problem joining in.
JJ comes from ringside with a microphone and hands it to Gravedigger. Bishop stands on Ayria as Adrian mouths off to Sarah Twilight. Gravedigger lifts his microphone as he turns to the ring where Chad Evans, Johnny Reb and Kira Sakazaki stand in the ring, perplexed.
Gravedigger: You know, I was pretty pissed off about losing this match and I was just going to let the shit go, but as you can see my boys here Bishop and Priest couldn’t let that shit go. I busted my ass for the last several weeks and I’m pretty much the main reason we even got here tonight to the finals and it all falls apart because you two scum-sucking leeches couldn’t pull your weight. I saw potential in you two, but obviously I am wrong for the first time in my life.
When we leave, you two....Sarah and Ayria...can limp back to the back and get yourselves attended to, but I highly suggest that you don’t come looking for revenge, because I’ll break both of you. No, let me correct myself. The Dark Side and MS-13 will break your bones and end your careers if you come after us. As for you three in the ring, I wish you luck in getting the tag titles off of these two scum-sucking leeches and the world title off of Fly or Logan. Don’t get used to it though because we’re going to be taking both the tag titles and the world title soon. I can guarantee that. The Dark Side does not walk into WCF and not accomplish what it promises to do. Tonight’s loss was a mere setback. A setback that I will overcome when I soon become the world champion once again.
“Changes” by Deftones hits the speakers and Gravedigger throws his microphone down onto Sarah Twilight.
Zach Davis: IT’S TIME FOR THE MAIN EVENT! LOGAN VERSUS FLY! YES! FINALLY THESE TWO MEET!
Shannan Lerch: Spoiler alert: Fly wins at the end.
Zach Davis: I don’t think so, Logan is one of the toughest competitors in the history of this company, Fly hasn’t seen someone capable of what Logan can do.
Shannan Lerch: It’s certainly an important match for Fly for perception purposes. If you want to be a legend, you have to beat the legends. Logan is the definition of a WCF legend.
Zach Davis: What the fuck? Was that an actual rational thought from Shannan Lerch?
Shannan Lerch: Getting ready to watch my lover Jonny Fly wrestle brings a certain calmness to me, Zach.
Zach Davis: Well, we’re about ready to kick this one off!
The beginning drum intro of "The Struggle Within" by Metallica plays loudly and rumbles the speakers. Fans all too familiar to the theme for this certain superstar cover their ears to shield them from the extremely loud drum roll. After the climax of the epic drum intro the song breaks into rhythm we….get nothing. The song continues to play and nobody emerges from behind the curtain.
Shannan Lerch: Wait a second, where is Logan?
Zach Davis: Probably dancing in the rain somewhere or some shit.
The titantron springs to action and we see Logan behind the curtain. He’s about ready to step out when he’s interrupted by…..Jonny Fly!
Jonny Fly: Hey Logan!
While the scene takes place backstage, Shannan Lerch and Zach Davis continue commentating from ringside.
Zach Davis: Uh-oh. Fly and Logan are about 10 feet from one another backstage! This is never good to see before a match can begin.
Logan spins and sees Fly behind him.
Logan: SHUT UP!
Jonny Fly: Before we go out there Logan, I have a surprise for you.
Logan looks at Fly questioningly. Fly turns and points down the hallway where a large object is being rolled toward them.
Jonny Fly: Logan, that is the largest coffee cake ever. I’m serious; before I had it brought here the guy’s from Guinness World Records weighed it. Largest. Coffee. Cake. Ever.
Shannan Lerch: That coffee cake is as big as a sofa! Holy shit!
Logan’s eyes grow wide as the giant coffee cake, sitting on a pallet, is rolled toward him. He begins to lick his lips at the deliciousness in front of him.
Jonny Fly: Let’s eat this together, what do you say…buddy?
Logan: I say…LET’S EAT BOUDLE!
Zach Davis: What the hell is this!? Logan and Fly eating coffee cake before the match!? They’re supposed to be fighting right now!
Fly whips out two oversized forks and hands one to his World Title opponent and the two begin digging into the coffee cake. After a few bites the cake begins to rumble…
Logan: What the…?
Kid Phantasm and Nightmare, The Unstable Elements, emerge from the inside of the coffee cake! They jump Logan begin to beat him down.
Shannan Lerch: THE UNSTABLE ELEMENTS WERE HIDING IN THE COFFEE CAKE!
Fly joins in and the former Trios Cup team begins stomping away at Logan on the cement floor. Logan tries to deflect the blows with his hand, and is able to roll away. He quickly gets back to his feet and Fly, Phantasm, and Nightmare quickly surround him. Logan reaches back is able to find a folding chair. He quickly grabs it and runs at Nightmare, hitting her over the head and sending her to the ground. Logan turns to Phantasm and runs at him with the chair, but Kid hits a drop toe-hold and Logan goes face fist into the cement floor.
Phantasm and Fly reach down and pick up Logan, shoving him into the wall where they begin beating on him with right hands to the face. Just when it looks like his flowing red wig is about the fall off, someone comes running into the scene, tackling both Fly and Phantasm simultaneously to the ground.
Zach Davis: DOC HENRY! YES!
Shannan Lerch: This isn’t good for Fly and Phantasm!
Henry reaches down and goes to work on his hated enemy, Jonny Fly. Doc begins absolutely RIPPING into him with right hands. Fly is completely defenseless and curls into a call on the ground, soaking up the blows. Logan has come to and picks back up his chair and begins viciously swinging it at the head of Kid Phantasm connecting one…two…three times!
Zach Davis: I don’t think this is what Fly had planned at all!
Shannan Lerch: Damn that Logan! Damn that Doc Henry!
Zach Davis: Could you imagine if FPV was in the building right now?
Doc Henry lifts up Fly’s midsection and holds him down for Logan. Logan walks over with the chair still in hand and swings it over Fly’s head several times. Finally, Nightmare has risen back to her feet. Logan has his back turned to her, but Henry alertly pushes him out of the way as she charges causing her to run into Fly. She immediately spins back around and is destroyed by another chair shot from Logan. Fly, Phantasm, and Nightmare are all lying on the ground motionless when……
Zach Davis: WAIT, IS THAT WHO I THINK IT IS!?!
Doc Henry is taken down to the ground out of nowhere by a superkick!
Shannan Lerch: THE SPOKE! JEFF PURSE IS IN THE HOUSE!
Zach Davis: …and he’s coming to the aid of Fly and The Unstable Elements! What!?
Logan turns as Doc falls to the cement and is leveled by a superkick himself.
Shannan Lerch: Purse just took out Logan and Doc Henry by himself!
As the fight continues backstage, inside the arena we see Bobby Cairo briskly walking down the ramp toward the ring with a microphone in his hand. Cairo slides into the ring and looks back at the titantron where Purse is helping Fly to his feet as Kid Phantasm helps Nightmare back to her feet.
Shannan Lerch: With Seth still in prison…
Zach Davis: NO! He’s free! Didn’t you hear!?
Shannan Lerch: ….anyways, with Seth not here, Cairo is still in charge and he’s just watched his Main Event turn into a backstage brawl. He can’t be too happy with this.
Cairo raises the microphone to his lips to talk, but the pulls it back down and shakes his head. The crowd grows restless for some answers. Cairo paces around the ring before finally speaking.
Bobby Cairo: I know they can hear me backstage, I’d like for Jonny Fly, Kid Phantasm, Nightmare, and Jeff Purse to come to this ring RIGHT NOW!
Shannan Lerch: Uh oh, he doesn’t sound happy. This reminds me of those times I got called to the principal’s office back in high school.
Zach Davis: What did you have to go to the principal’s office for, Shannan?
Shannan Lerch: Giving blowjobs in the bathroom to my brother’s friends.
Zach Davis: Somehow, I knew that was going to be the answer.
Without any fanfare, not even so much as an entrance theme, Fly, Phantasm, Nightmare, and Purse make their way onto the stage. The four pause and stare down the ramp at Cairo before slowly walking toward ringside and entering the ring. Fly asks for a microphone and one is thrown into the ring for him. He brings the microphone up to talk but is cut-off by Cairo.
Bobby Cairo: No, I don’t want to hear it Fly. All I want from you….is to bring that damn coffee cake down here and let’s eat that motherfucker!
The crowd EXPLODES.
Shannan Lerch: YES!
Zach Davis: What the hell?
Bobby Cairo: While that baby is being rolled out here, I have something else to announce. Seth Lerch still isn’t here, and I’m calling the shots! My last order of business tonight is this; I want Doc Henry and Logan removed from the arena immediately!
On the titantron we can see Henry and Logan just start coming to backstage. They are met by nearly a dozen security guards who grab them and begin pulling them toward an exit.
Bobby Cairo: Someone make sure to tell Logan that he FORFEITS his World Title shot! Fly is World Champion, and Logan won’t have a chance to change that!
The crowd is going crazy right now. They are SCREAMING in excitement. Fly flashes his cocky grin and takes the microphone from Cairo.
Jonny Fly: I want everyone backstage to take note of what they see in the ring right now.
Fly points at The Unstable Elements.
Jonny Fly: The best fuckin’ tag-team in this company.
Fly points at Cairo.
Jonny Fly: The greatest wrestler in the history of this company. THE. GREATEST. EVER. Bobby Cairo.
Fly points at Jeff Purse.
Jonny Fly: The fuckin’ future of the WCF, and your NEW United States Champion, Jeff Purse.
Fly points at himself.
Jonny Fly: …and me, the World Champion. Jonny Fly. Did any of you really think Logan was going to get a shot to take this belt from me? LOGAN? Christ, you’re all dumb. Nobody wants to see Logan as World Champion….do we?
The crowd boos at Logan.
Jonny Fly: The five of us, you can refer to us as Pantheon. That Team of Treachery bullshit is over, we’ll be the guy’s running the show from here on out.
Fly drops the microphone to the ground and raises his World Title high in the air. Balloons and confetti drop from the rafters. From somewhere streamers go off and fly into the crowd who stands for an ovation. Finally, the coffee cake has made its way into the ring and Fly hands each person one of the forks. As Pantheon digs into the world’s largest coffee cake, the show fades to black.
