The Three of Us by Streetlight Manifesto, the official Ultimate Showdown theme, plays as Ultimate Showdown goes live on the air!
Zach Davis: Welcome to one of the biggest shows on the WCF calendar, Ultimate Showdown!
Erin Robbins: I'm honored to be calling this show, I can tell you that. It'll be a big night for Bravado.
Zach Davis: That is yet to be seen. What WILL Bravado do if Eric Price wins the Ultimate Showdown match and Sarah Twilight retains the belt anyway, Erin?
Erin Robbins: That's up to them, Zach; personally I bet they'd give us another classic wrestling match, but that's just me.
Zach Davis: First, Sarah Twilight has to defend her Title. The first female World Champion puts the gold on the line against a former World Champion, Waylon Cash, and The Mack himself, Steve Orbit.
Erin Robbins: These three competitors are VERY familiar with each other. Waylon and Orbit used to be known as the Homegrown Players and have been fighting each other tooth and nail since the breakup.
Zach Davis: As for Twilight, her and Orbit had tension even before Twilight's defection from Genesis... and Waylon, he was the very first to leave that group. Long story short, we've been waiting to see these three go at it for a long time now, and tonight, at Ultimate Showdown, we finally do.
Erin Robbins: I can't think of any match more worthy of this pay per view than that, Zach.
Zach Davis: There is, of course, the Ultimate Showdown match itself. The match has undergone another transformation: tonight, the final prize will be a #1 contendership for the World Championship.
Erin Robbins: With Sarah as the Champion, that isn't much of a prize. She's unbeatable.
Zach Davis: Well, I'd say anyone that can win THIS match could give her a run for her money. Eight of WCF's best-
Erin Robbins: Correction: Seven of WCF's best, and The Rookie, Thomas Buckley.
Zach Davis: Hey, now, Seth put him there because of his performance in the Internet Title match. Anyway, Nathan von Liebert, the returning Odin Balfore, the aforementioned Thomas Buckley, the new Internet Champion Jay Price, the former People's Pastor Steeltoe Joe, the leader of Cryogenix, the Polar Phantasm, the US Champion and owner of EPPW, Eric Price, and the Hardcore Champion, Jeff Purse... these eight men will be competing in one of the most unpredictable matches in WCF history.
Erin Robbins: It really IS unpredictable. In addition to the winner's World Title shot, the runner up will receive the Hardcore Title. Second runner up, the US Title. Third, TV. Fourth, People's. And fifth, the Internet Champion.
Zach Davis: We should've put the Tag Team Champions in the match and had the first two eliminations take a forced reign as the Tag Team Champions, for Pete's sake. Maybe next year!
Erin Robbins: Eric Price doesn't give stupid ideas like that any thoughts, Zach.
Zach Davis: Anyway though, speaking of the Tag Team Titles, they're on the line as Oblivion and Night Rider, known as the Angels of Death, face S-PAC, Ana Valentine and John Gobble. You'll note that Valentine wasn't present when the belts were won, but they've been allowed to defend them under Freebird rules.
Erin Robbins: That's fair leadership.
Zach Davis: In the ongoing Bravado versus Cryogenix war, we'll see Jonathan Jakobs face Frank Patrick Venable.
Erin Robbins: Every match matters, Zach, and I look forward to this one. It's actually our only standard rules singles match on the card, believe it or not!
Zach Davis: Our other singles match is Tek versus Terry Roberts in a Fans Bring the Weapons match. Very interesting. Roberts returned a month ago and made the challenge for tonight's contest, which was answered by Tek.
Erin Robbins: Tek had an impressive victory against his former Genesis teammate FPV last week. Can he keep the momentum up and defeat Synn?
Zach Davis: The number one contender to the Television Title, Matthew Robinson, faces Justin Turner and John Barber. Turner is a WCF mainstay but Barber is an impressive newcomer... this match is anyone's guess.
Erin Robbins: And our opener? I don't believe Eric let Seth book this.
Zach Davis: Talk about an Ultimate Showdown... four big WCF teams are facing off in a match that can only be described as "crazy." Tyler Walker and Biohazard, Kira Sakazaki and Mariko, the Big Time Jerks, and Hugs & Stitches.
Erin Robbins: Can Hugs & Stitches really even be considered a tag team? Come on.
Zach Davis: We'll see, but it'll be a hell of a match. I can't wait... let's get to this show!
“The Touch” by Stan Bush starts playing over the speaker system of the LA Memorial Coliseum as the first lines of the song start “You’ve got the touch … you’ve got the power ….. yeah!”
Zach Davis: And yet another night where we kick off the show with Eric Price, what a shock.
Eric Price steps out from behind the curtain with a huge smile on his face, wearing a black suit with a black shirt and black tie, the US Title draped around his shoulder as he is grinning ear to ear as the crowd starts massively booing his presence.
Erin Robbins: And what’s wrong with that Zach? I don’t understand why you mind it so much considering he owns this damn place, if he wanted too he could be the entire damn show and it’s within his power to do so.
Zach Davis: Disgusting thought I must admit.
Erin Robbins: He wouldn’t do it because he has better business sense than that but he did promise a special announcement to kick off the Ultimate Showdown PPV!
Eric quickly grabs a microphone from the ring announcers’ area and steps into the ring gingerly as the crowd continues to boo him.
Eric Price: Welcome to the second pay per view under the EPPW Administration and banner, welcome to Ultimate Showdown!
Crowd gives a mixed reaction to the welcome.
Eric Price: Oh shut up! I’m here just to make a brief announcement, I know I promised a special announcement at the top of this show and I won’t take long here. First, good luck to all match participants tonight! Secondly, next week, regardless of the outcome of the PPV, it will be yours truly Mr. Eric Price in one on one action in a street fight against Ana Valentine!
Crowd cheers a bit at this match.
Zach Davis: Whoa, major announcement!
Erin Robbins: I’ll say, should be a great match next week!
Eric Price: And third and this is my actual announcement, I’d like to state that I have given some time to a great woman here tonight, I’ve decided to cede some air time to Ms. Emmaleigh Shae!
Crowd boos loudly
Eric Price: Ms. Shae is a great woman, a woman of class, of integrity, someone who exemplifies the values of Bravado and EPPW and I know that what she does, she does in the interest of fairness. She has a message she would like broadcast here and…
The crowd begins to cheer as Davey Ortega steps out from the back with a microphone in his hand. He looks sleep deprived, with a half deranged look in his eyes. Eyes that meet with Eric Price who is still in the ring. Davey walks down the aisle and up the steel stairs and into the ring.
Davey Ortega: It's been a rather rough week for me. I haven't been sleeping through the nights, and I have been trying to get a hold of you all week. I must of left a dozen messages but I guess you were just to busy to talk to me. That's fine Eric because at this point I don't want to talk. I don't care why you did it, just tell me where that crazy Irish bitch is. I don't think you understand how dangerous these people are, the lengths they are willing to go...
Static crosses the large screen above the stage area... background noise of shuffling and muttering can be heard, accompanying the static, but for a few moments no image comes through.... slowly the pixelation begins to take form and Emmaleigh Shae is staring straight down the lens of what is obviously quite an old handheld camera balanced on something.
The crowd begin to boo loudly, which ques a smile on her lips, as she realizes she is now connected, her response time makes it obvious that this is in-fact a live feed. Emmaleigh steps back just a little and drops to one knee, so that in the extreme close-up she is eye level with the camera. She pyramids her fingers under her chin and laughs slightly as she cocks her head to the side, regarding the two men stood in the ring.
Emmaleigh Shae: Feck me Ortega will yer just shut up already.... Who in the blue heel do yer think ye are?! Makin' demands and the like...
She starts to laugh as she watches him become frustrated, yelling at the screen with the mic away from his mouth. Eric looks between Ortega and the screen and sort of holds his hands up as if to say 'I'm out of this one'...
Emmaleigh Shae: Now, Eric... I seem to recall a conversation you and I had, where you assured me that so long as it did not affect the direct agenda of Bravado, whatever A felt the need to do in regard to this fuckin' eejit, was none of your business. So... Thank yer for the airtime, I look forward to returning to the WCF offices in due time, but may I suggest yer remove yerself from the situation.... I wouldn't want any.... blood on yer hands.
Ortega turns and stares Eric down for a moment, as if daring him to leave, but also daring him to stay. Eric again holds his hands up as a way to dismiss the situation and exits the ring, as he walks back up the ramp he glances up at the monitor and pauses for a moment. He and Emmaleigh lock eyes and she nods slowly in some sign of reassurance, at which point he walks the rest of the way up the ramp and into the back.
Emmaleigh Shae: Now... Ortega, I afforded you every fuckin' opportunity to make things right. Yer could have been a lamb of the lord, repentance was waiting for yer... but instead, you have sent yer only friend into the fiery pits of hades....
Emmaleigh slowly steps back, revealing a dark empty warehouse behind her. A solitary chair sits, lit up by a bare bulb in the darkness. Bound to the chair is Dr. James Preston, his face is barely recognizable through bruises and swelling, there is a gag tied to tightly around his mouth, that below the ripped and bloodied shirt, his chest heaves heavily, fighting for air. Emmaleigh chuckles again and walks slowly over to the chair.
As she approaches the chair, she lifts a small wine glass, the kind used to serve the blood of Christ to a congregation. The smashes the glass over Prestons head, but he is so dulled to pain by now he barely attempts to moan, but Shae is nowhere near done. She stoops down and picks up a long and sharp shard of glass. She slowly unties the gag from Preston's mouth and removes the tatters that remain of his shirt.
Emmaleigh grabs his hair with her left hand and yanks his head backwards with such a force Preston cannot help but yelp. Emmaleigh leans right in close to his skin and presses the glass shard against his neck.
Emmaleigh Shae: Did yer know Ortega, there is a way in which to slice the throat, so that the blood flow will be slow and controlled.... If yer keep the cuts shallow enough, the victim can be kept awake for over 12 hours, suffering the unbearable agony of slowly and painfully bleeding to death, or worse...
Davey Ortega raises the mic back up to his lips, his eyes look a little wild as he shakes his head.
Davey Ortega: You fucking bitch...
Emmaleigh Shae: Exactly as I thought, the ever unrepentant devil tongued Ortega.... Ye shall watch and ye shall cower before the retribution.
She laughs softly as she slowly begins to make an incision into Preston's neck, the glass breaks the skin, but not so deep as to tear muscle. Blood begins to bobble and cur to the surface, Prestonn tries to shake his head free from her grasp, biting down on his own lip in order to not give her any satisfaction. In one fluid moment, she drops his head, holding a lighter to the ring on her forefinger, she then presses the ring face to the incision, sealing it with a searing burn. Unable to contain himself, Preston begins to scream in pain.
Shae simply laughs and regains a grasp of his hair, snapping his head back, she stretches the freshly sealed wound so that the burn breaks and then rips at the skin, blood pouring through the wound. The flesh of Prestons neck looks almost like melted candle wax as parts remain sealed, other parts pulling apart at the incision. Shae then turns slightly, her back to the camera as she makes several small and quick incisions into Prestons neck, the prayer she recites as she perform these incisions is drowned out by the horrified screams of pure agony pouring from the good doctors lips.
After making five or six cuts, Shae drops the glass shard to the floor and looks back at the camera, her right hand is gloved with the blood of Preston and the smile on her lips spreads from ear to ear as she laughs that cold hollow laugh.
Emmaleigh Shae: I am the lamb, the retribution... Yer don't understand who it is yer be fuckin' with Ortega.... Ye think yer can make a fool of me family like that.... Well, now.... Imma make a fool of you and destroy everything you have ever loved.... Speakin of which....
Emmaleigh turns back to Preston, she raises her foot, we see she is wearing heavy black millitant boots, the type worn by the marching soldiers of the IRA. She stomps her foot down between Preston's legs. At the impact of the stomp, he begins to gag, but is unable to control himself and throws his head sideways, vomiting down himself and onto the floor, stretching apart every incision as Shae uses the foot to stand fully on the chair, her other foot, taking no weight balances on his left thigh as she practically stands directly between his legs.... forcing all her weight downwards. She jumps down and turns back to the camera with a small smirk.
As she glances over her shoulder, she sees Preston begin to slip out of consciousness, as unacceptable action at this point and she moves to his side, slapping him once hard. His eyes practically roll as he regains consciousness... barely able to speak, he moans and pleads, begging for mercy. Emmaleigh grabs the camera and shoves it into Preston's face... The doctor simply whimpers and cries, begging for it to stop in between points of complete loss of body control. the laughter of Emmaleigh Shae can be heard in the background.
She turns the camera around to face her, just as Preston finally slips out of consciousness.
Emmaleigh Shae: Ye know what I want.... Time's a wastin'!
Just as Shea smashes completes her demmands, the stage area starts to flicker in Neon Blue and white lights. “Radioactive” by Imagine Dragons starts to play through the P.A system and fog fills the entrance ramp.
Davey Ortega is confused as to why this is happening, so he looks onto the stage waiting for a particular person to come out, maybe to aid him, maybe just for kicks but as Ortega looks on at the stage area…
Zach Davis: Hey wait a minute!
Steeltoe Joe slides into the ring from the back side, grabs Davey Ortega’ arm and then lifts him up, just to smash him down into the ring mat below with a vicious “Baptism.”
Joe looks at Emmaleigh and then takes a courteous bow to her, he smiles but then spits on the lifeless body of Davey Ortega. Joe then heads back stage to get ready for his Ultimate Showdown match as Emmaleigh Shea laughs with a sadistic, wicked smile on her face.
Zach Davis: So wait a minute, STJ attacks Davey Ortega … for what reason?
Erin Robbins: I don’t know, they’re both members of Bravado, perhaps some dissention among the ranks. Eric Price certainly approves of Emmaleigh Shae but he may be stuck in the middle of this whole fiasco.
The screen cracks and then returns to static, making it obvious she has smashed the camera against the floor.
Zach Davis: Welcome everyone to The Ultimate Showdown, twenty thirteen! We have a spectacular show tonight and -
Erin Robbins: Thats right and tonight we start it off with some good old fashion tag team mayhem! A fatal four way tag team match.
All of the lights will drop at once, sending the crowd into a bit of a panic. "Bleed For Me" by the Black Label Society will then kick in as the lights remain off. They'll remain off for a few moments until finally they come back on, revealing Arkham sitting on the mat in one of the corners as he and Freddy are in deep discussion of their upcoming match.
Zach Davis: Arkham and Freddy, discussion battle tactics no dount.
"Broken out in love" by Mark Crozer and The Rels starts blasting as the WCFtron reads "Big Time Jerks" on it. Out walk Adam and Austin and the crowd erupts with chants of "BTJ". They walk towards the ring with icey glares on their faces. Stan Murdoch pulls out a mic.
Stan-People the days of watching overpaid idiots take you on trips into their own egos is gone. My boys right here are returning the WCF back into a family entertainment mecca. The days of the seven deadly words are gone. No longer will there be scantly clad females in front of you Godly people. This is a fight between good and evil. Southern morals shall rule over the WCF and bring back high family values. We are not the bad guys but the righteous who have come to repair your moral order.
Erin Robbins: Big Time Jerks are out and looking ready to pick up the win.
"I Like to Move It" by Reel 2 Reel plays over the sound system. Tyler Walker emerges from the back with white pyros at the entrance. He's wearing his black and gold letterman jacket with "TW" embroidered in the front, "TY WALKER" on the back. He's also wearing black shades, a white tank top and his black shorts with "TW" written around the belt line. Black boots and has his wrists taped. He slowly makes his way to the ring with a cocky smile on his face, bobbing his head to his music as he ignores the fans. When he hits the ring, he climbs on the apron, drops his jacket to ringside, and does a few body builder poses, as more white pyros blast off. He enters the ring through the ropes and removes his tank top and shades, throwing them to ringside before getting ready to fight.
Zach Davis: Tyler walkers in the ring, just gotta wait on Biohazard to come down and help his partner.
breakdown by biohazard plays and biohazard comes out and walks to the ring as yellow and purple lights flash
Erin Robbins: Theres something I just don't trust about that guy.
Beginner by VSK Hits the PA system as Kira and his fiance Mariko make their way to the ring, high fiving fans and waving. They make it to the ring as Kira sits on the middle rope for his fiance.
Zach Davis: Kiras, always the gentleman.
Erin Robinson: Its enough to make me sick.
Zach Davis: Funny, I could say the same about you.
All four teams take to a corner, one person from each team out in the ring. Marika,Freddy, Tyler, and Austin.
Tyler and Austin just look at each other and smile. Immediately going after Marika but she stands her ground for a moment. They come at her with right hands that rock her into her corner but she bravely fight back. Stiff elbows and kicks free her for a moment and send the men back a few steps. Marika swift tags in Kira who leap frogs onto the top turn buckle and cross bodies both Tyler and Austin.
Zach Davis: Now its a fair fight.
Erin Robbins:: Yah, Marika woulda killed them both. Damn shame too.
Kira is all energy tonight. He bounces off the ropes. Austin gets to his feet
Flying elbow smash!
Tyler gets up.
Spinning wheel kick!
Arkhams over in his corner, pleading with Freddy to be tagged in. He finnaly gets in the ring, picks up teddy and tags himself in.
Erin Robbins: Is that legal ?
Zach Davis: If not, it is now. The refs letting it go.
Arkham gets back in the ring, Kira charges.
Big boot, connects!
Austin and Tyler team up again on Arkham, the monster just refuses to budge.
Double head butt!
Zach Davis: Arkham just man handling his opponents.
Erin Robbins: That double headbutt sent both Austin and Tyler to their corners. Biohazard and Adam Young are in the ring.
Adam Young shows no fear, stepping in the ring and starts going blow for blow with Arkham.
Zach Davis: Not smart.
Erin Robbins: Who cares, it's Adam young.
Adam young ducks a wide punch and stays down for a moment.
Zach Davis: Biohazard coming off the ropes, springboarding off AY with that fantastic superman punch that send Arkham stumbling back and through the middle rope!
Erin Robbins: Just in time too, Kira finally shakes the cob webs from his newely rearranged face.
Crowd: BIO- BIO- BIO !
Adam Young grabs Biohazard from behind and nails a German suplex.
Zach Davis: Adam Young might be hated but he knows what do in the ring.
Young lifts up Biohazard again
Kira with a superkick, to tip over the suplex. Young goes to get to his feet but gets caught by a running enzugeri!
Erin Robbins:: Kira gets to his feet..
Zach Davis: Tyler Walker! Tyler Walker out of no where with a huge spear!
Erin Robbins:: Its a fatal four way, the refs gotta let it go.
Arkham gets back in the ring. He picks up Biohazard and and scoop slams him. Walker turns him around...
Erin Robbins: Tyler Walker just cleared the ring, pretty much.
Zach Davis: Too bad he's not the legal man.
Zach Davis: Marika out of no where with that scissor kick!
Erin Robbins: Revenge for Kira!
Adam young his back to his feet, he grabs Marika with a cobra clutch, lifting her into the air and throwing her down to the ground as hard as he can! Kira gets to his feet and sees his fiance being man handled by Adam Young. Fire errupts in his eyes...
On the other side of the ring, Arkham is brawling with Tyler, the matcvhis a donnybrooke. Its chaos but out of the chaos comes Kira!
Arkham and Tyler try to break away from each other to stop the pin.. Arkham throws Tyler out of the ring and breaks it up!
Zach Davis: So close!
Arkham kicks Young out of the ring and then turns to attack Kira, but Kira is already back up and Springboarding..
Erin Robbins: Another Heavy Rotation!
Kira pins Arkham!
Zach Davis: And there you have it! Kira fought through after everything and was able to get the win.
Erin Robbins: I don't anyone in this match is going to go quietly after this.
Kyle Steel: The following contest is a triple threat match and is scheduled for one fall.
The Lights in the arena go out then a few gun shots are heard over the P.A. We see the flashs of cameras before a camo background lights up as the words "The Freak" are posted on the tron. After a moment "The Gunslinger" by Shooter Jennings hits.
Stepped off of the train in this town
From the back comes out a confident Justin Turner with Jennifer Adams by his side. The fans raise to their feet and cheer as they make their way down the ramp.
Kyle Steel: From Crystal River, Florida, weighing in at one hundred and sixty five pounds, The High Flying Freak Justin Turner!
But don't call an outlaw no,
Justin rolls under the bottom rope before posing for the crowd.
Zach Davis: Last week on Slam we saw Turner team with Tyler Walker and Biohazard to make quick work of the Southern Mafia.
Erin Robbins: Quick work? If you blinked you missed it.
Zach Davis: And speaking of the Southern Mafia, have you taken notice to who is making their way down the ramp?
Adam Young has appeared on the ramp, heading down toward the ring. Turner looks like he's offering for Young to enter the ring but Young instead grabs a chair and takes a seat beside the announce table.
Erin Robbins: Well now this is interesting. Is Adam Young simply scouting the talent or is he trying to play mind games with Justin Turner over last week?
Zach Davis: I have no idea and it doesn't look like Adam is in the mood to talk with us.
The opening to 'One Finger And A Fist' by Drowning Pool plays through the PA system as the arena plunges into darkness. When the song fully kicks in, 'The Punisher' Matthew Robinson bursts out onto the stage sending the WCF fans into a frenzy. Robinson is visibly fired up and raring to go as he makes his way down the ramp slapping the fans hands on his way.
Kyle Steel: From Orlando, Florida by way of London, England, weighing in at two hundred and thirty five pounds, The Punisher Matthew Robinson!
Robinson heads around the ring slapping the fans hands on the way before rolling into the ring. He then climbs the turnbuckle and raises his arms high above his head before taking his shirt off, throwing it into the crowd and climbing back down as 'One Finger And A Fist' fades out.
Erin Robbins: At Slam we saw Robinson defeat Zero to become the new number one contender for the Television Title. Somewhere in the back you have to wonder if Polar Phantasm and the rest of the Ultimate Showdown participants are keeping an eye on this match.
Zach Davis: I'm sure they have bigger things on their minds but overlooking this guy could prove fatal. That Lock Of Punishment submission hold of his is absolutely brutal.
“The Fire” by Rev Theory starts playing on the speakers as John Barber walks out from the back. He stands on top of the ramp with a thumb hooked into his right pocket, looking out at the crowd around him. He starts walking down the ramp, slapping hands with the fans nearest to the barricade.
Kyle Steel: From Miami, Florida, weighing in at two hundred and twenty pounds, John Barber!
He jogs up the ring steps, quickly ducks between the top and middle ropes, and walks over to the nearest turnbuckle. He perches on the second turnbuckle and raises both arms, looking out at the crowd with a smirk on his face.
Zach Davis: And last week we saw the debut of John Barber as he went one on one with the big man Arkham and pulled off an impressive victory after a rather bizarre pin attempt.
Erin Robbins: Something tells me Arkham is still trying to figure out how that pin worked out.
Zach Davis: As crazy as that bastard is I wonder if he even know what the word pin means.
The referee calls for the bell.
[DING! DING! DING!]
Almost immediately all three men hit the center of the ring and begin exchanging punches. Lefts hands. Right hands. It's a whirlwind of fists as all three men are hitting anything that moves in front of them. The referee tries to get involved and warn about the closed fists but has to scatter back after he nearly walks into a right from Robinson.
Erin Robbins: This is out of hand already!
Turner eventually gets knocked to the mat as Robinson and Barber turn their attention to each other and tie-up. Back and forth action as both ring technicians try their damndest to get control and it's finally Barber who gets Robinson in a rear waist lock. Barber tries for a german suplex but Robinson blocks it with his leg. As Barber fights to try for the suplex again, Turner jumps up and connects with a standing dropkick to the chest of Robinson, knocking both men backward. Barber bounces off the ropes and releases Robinson, who stumbles forward into a drop toe hold by Turner. Turner hops up to his feet pumped.
Zach Davis: And look at this! Justin Turner is on fire!
But the celebration is short lived as Barber bounces off of the ropes and nails Turner with a clothesline. Down goes Turner as Barber turns his attention to the recovering Robinson. Barber now with forearms to the back as Robinson tries to get back up, forcing him right back down. Turner starts to get back up to his feet but Barber kicks him in the side, knocking him right back down.
Erin Robbins: And just like that you see why triple threats are so dangerous. You turn your back on a guy for a second and he makes you pay.
Barber now pulling Robinson back up to his feet and he quickly snaps off a suplex before hooking the leg for a pin attempt.
Robinson is quick to count at one as Barber gets back up to his feet. Robinson starts to push himself up when Barber grabs the arm and tries to lock in the Cracker. Robinson fighting him off as best he can when Turner comes from out of nowhere with a kick to the back of Barber's head. Robinson rolls away from Barber as it's now Turner with the offense, dropping an elbow across the face of Barber. Turner with the quick pin attempt.
Robinson dives on top of Turner and shoves him off of Barber. Robinson now with the pin attempt.
Now it's Turner's turn to break up the pin attempt. Both men back up to their feet as Barber rolls away from them to catch his breath. Robinson tries for a tie up but Turner ducks it and connects with a kick to the shins. Robinson is buckled just for a second but it's enough for Turner to connect with a standing dropkick to the back. Down goes Robinson as turner quickly makes his way to the corner. He hops up to the top rope and starts to leap off when Barber runs into the ropes, knocking Turner groin first onto the top turnbuckle.
Zach Davis: OOF!
Barber makes his way over to the corner and climbs up to the second rope. He fires off a few quick punches before grabbing the head of Turner and setting him up for a superplex. But then it's Robinson with a forearm to the back of Barber. Robinson now getting under Barber, setting him up onto his shoulders.
Erin Robbins: This is as dangerous as it gets.
The fans are all up on their feet as Robinson falls back with Barber on his shoulders at the same time Barber pulls Turner off the turnbuckle with the suplex. All three men hit the mat hard and are down as the crowd pops. The referee is looking back and forth at all three men before starting a ten count.
Zach Davis: If any of these three can find a way to make a pin or even just get to their feet they should be able to win this.
All three are still down on the mat, Turner looking like he may have gotten the worst of the impact.
Erin Robbins: Is it really going to end like this?
No, Robinson and Barber get to their feet. They brawl, and Barber takes Robinson down with a Short Arm Clothesline. Robinson rolls out. Barber turns to Turner...
Zach Davis: CRACKER! He locks in the Cracker!
Turner has no choice; he taps out!
Erin Robbins: John Barber picks up yet another victory!
The ref raises Barber's arm as Robinson regroups outside the ring and medics quickly check on Turner's arm.
Zach Davis: We have had an high paced actioned packed night, so far.
Erin Robbins: We come to the match that has been buzzing around on twitter and on the internet.... The fans bring the weapons match.
Zach Davis: The fans have brought anything and everything to The Izod Center....
A couple of cameras pan the arena, occasionally zooming on a few fans showing off their brought in weapons.
Erin Robbins: GOOD GOD!! Did that person have a brick?!
Zach Davis: Welcome to Jersey, Erin.
Erin Robbins: Frickin' idiots!! The match is about to start and Kyle Steel is in the ring, for the pre match introductions....
Kyle Steel: This match is a FANS BRING IN THE WEAPONS MATCH!! ANYTHING GOES!!
The crowd in the Izod center comes alive.
Zach Davis: Oh my God, i can barely hear myself think.
Erin Robbins: Thank God!! I can barely hear you speak!
Zach Davis: WHAT?!
Erin Robbins: Exactly.
When the house lights dim down, a new song plays in the place of "HellRaiser" from Motorhead. Fans of the television program "In Living Color" begin to cheer, hoot, and holler as they recognize the song, "Imposter" featuring Jim Carrey. The rest of the crowd gets into it. The cameras pan around the arena, as they show the crowd dancing side to side.
Zach Davis: HA!! Oh my God! Did Jim Carrey just start rapping as Popeye?!
The crowd goes absolutely crazy, cheering wildly, when Terry comes out on stage, dressed in a black hoodie, black Parachute pants, black fingerless gloves, and 1980's Aviator sunglasses. Roberts completes the ensemble with a replica Tek mask, but the mask has red lipstick and bright purple hooker eyeshadow.
Kyle Steel: From Birmingham, Alabama.... weighing in at 269 pounds. He is The Hellraiser... SYNN.... TER-ER-ERR-RY RO-O-OBER-ER-ERTSS-S!!
Zach Davis: OH my, oh my, oh my, Terry coming out with a mocking portrayal of Tek, I don't think Tek is going to like this one little bit.
Erin Robbins: I don't think Terry Roberts really cares what Tek thinks!!
Terry is quickly followed by a man dressed in a bright canary yellow three piece suit, wearing gaudy jewelry, his hair slicked all the way back into a ponytail, waving an equally gaudy bejeweled cross high in the air, with an open bible, held upside down, in his other hand.
Preacher: REPENT! REPENT! REPENT ALL YE SINNERS!!
Erin Robbins: And I would wager, THAT is supposed to be Steel Toe Joe?
Zach Davis: Wait, wait a second, Erin, is that?
Erin takes a closer look at the "preacher", as a cameraman does a "close up" on the "Preacher".
Erin Robbins: OH MY LORD THAT'S JOHN BARBER!!!
Terry "TEK" Roberts and John "Steel Toe Joe" Barber make their way down to the ring. Terry greets and hugs some of the fans, and then yelling profanities and snubbing others, as "Joe" starts "speaking in tongues" waving the upside down bible in the air along with the cross.
Zach Davis: I can't imagine Tek being too pleased with this.
Erin Robbins: Why not? Tek wanted the fans to love him, then turned on them, pretty accurate portrayal of Tek as a wishy washy ass kisser you ask me!!
Zach Davis: Tek is NOT wishy washy, nor is he an ass kisser.
As "TEK" and "STJ" get to ringside, Terry "Tek" does a quick spin, grabs his crotch and yells out to the crowd, as John "STJ" tries blessing fans at ringside, Terry "Tek" then throws off the hoodie, spinning around so the fans can see he is sporting a mock Prophecy t-shirt, the word "PROPHECY" is on the front, as Terry turns around, there is a picture of Steel Toe Joe with a masked man standing behind him. Written in bold white letters, around the picture, are "Steel Toe Joe" on top, and "THAT OTHER GUY" beneath it. The fans cheer in laughter at this. Terry "TEK" then kneels before John "STJ" in a catholic style blessing, before Terry climbs up the rings steps, going through the ropes and entering the ring.
Erin Robbins: Terry has a penchant for extravagant entrances at pay per views, this was definitely no exception.
Zach Davis: Terry and Tek both talked about this match being personal, I think Terry took it to a whole different level.
Erin Robbins: Let's see how Tek handles this.
The arena goes pitch black. “Anchor” plays and blue neon lights come on and point to the stage where Tek is at standing looking right at the ring. He makes is way down the ramp to the crowd booing him.
Kyle Steel: Coming down to the ring...
Zach Davis: These East Rutherford fans are sure giving Tek a piece of their mind.
Erin Robbins: Well, here in a few minutes, the fans will be giving him more than their piece of mind!!
Zach Davis: That so true Erin!! Things will be getting very interesting here in a few moments!!
Tek stops at the bottom of the ramp and looks around at the crowd, he walks to the ring and gets on the apron and sits on the ropes looking inside the ring.
Zach Davis: Both men are staring daggers at each other!!
Tek steps into the ring. Immediately, WCF Senior Referee Stanley Moser aks for the bell...
...Tek and Terry Roberts charge at each other.
Erin Robbins: YES!! FIRE!!
The Hellraiser starts the match off with tossing a fireball in the direction of The Coldblooded.
Zach Davis: DAMN!! Tek just ducked in time sliding through under Terry Roberts' legs and...
WHAM!! WHOO-OOSH-FWAPP!! THWACK!! BAMM!!
Tek quickly assaults his opponent with a quick jab, a spinning back chop, a shin kick, then finishing off with a front kick to the mid-section of Synn.
Erin Robbins: That mid section kick sends Roberts back a couple of feet.
The Hellraiser and Tek charge at each other....
Zach Davis: Terry Roberts just quickly stopped... for what reason?!
Tek continues charging at Roberts....
Erin Robbins: GREEN MIST!! GREEN MIST!! GREEN MIST TO THE EYES OF TEK!!
Zach Davis: Tek cannot see!!
Tek quickly drops to one knee, placing his palms to his eyes, trying to see. Roberts taunt Tek.
Terry Roberts: What Coldblooded can't see?!?
Tek responds back with two wild swings, missing twice.
Erin Robbins: A stick kick to the head of Tek by Terry Roberts!!
Tek is still rubbing his eyes, as Synn grabs him and....
Zach Davis: The Hellraiser just ceremoniously tossed Tek right out in front of us!!
Terry Roberts walks over to the fans, as they shake their weapons in the face of The Hellraiser.
Erin Robbins: This is where it's about to get fun!!!
Roberts walks over to a group of people.
Zach Davis: I see a crutch, a walker...
Erin Robbins: HOLY SHIT!!
Zach Davis: ERIN!!
Erin Robbins: I'm sorry that was funny!!
Terry Robbins grabbed a walker from an elderly lady...
Zach Davis: To be honest, I don't think was supposed to be a weapon, I think Synn scared her and she was trying to defend herself!!
...and clocked Tek over the head with it!! Tek spins around almost a full rotation, unaware in a comical fashion. Tek is about to fall face first....
Zach Davis: ALREADY AN A-BOMB!!
Terry Roberts had grabbed Tek right as he was falling and nailed him with a tilt-a-whirl into a faceplant powerbomb.
Crowd: THAT WAS SICK!! THAT WAS SICK!! THAT WAS SICK!!
Roberts goes back to the crowd and see a woman....
Zach Davis: RUN LADY RUN!!!
Erin Robbins: You're such an idiot!!
Synn grabs the woman's purse and snatches it away.
Erin Robbins: I didn't think that was meant to be used as a weapon!!
THWAPP!! THWAPP!! THWAPP!! THWAPP!!
Synn proceeds to slam the purse, by the straps and slams it across the back of Tek. The crowd laughs.
Crowd: SHIT WAS FUNNY!! SHIT WAS FUNNY!! SHIT WAS FUNNY!!
Zach Davis: What now?!?
Roberts proceeds to go into the purse....
Erin Robbins: He cannot do that?!?!
Woman in crowd: HEY THAT'S MY PURSE!!
Synn just smiles at the woman, as he goes through the purse and finds...
Zach Davis: NO-O-O.....
Erin Robbins: Gotta love it!!
Synn proceeds to drag the lipstick all over Tek's face.
Zach Davis: What's that psycho doing now?!?
Terry Roberts grabs...
Erin Robbins: PERFUME?!?
Zach Davis: Synn has something else in his hands...
The crowd cheers...
Erin Robbins: A lighter!?!?! What is he gonna use that for?!
The perfume is in a medium size glass container, with a spray top....
Tek: MY EYES!!!
Zach Davis: DDT!!!
Roberts walks over to the crowd again and tosses the woman back her purse...
The woman in crowd: ASSHOLE!!!
Synn grabs a cup from a nearby person...
A person: HEY!!
Roberts walks over to Tek and ceremoniously dumps the contents over the head of Tek. Synn grabs Tek....
Zach Davis: A quick upper cut finger thrust to the throat of Terry Roberts.
Synn hobbles back. Tek grabs the walker and swings it wildly....
Erin Robbins: Coldblooded just clocked The Hellraiser with a walker!!!
Tek walks over near the time keeper's area and reaches over the barrier, from a fan and grabs for a crutch.
Zach Davis: Tek has a crutch!!
Terry Roberts: AHH-H-H-H-H!!
Tek roars out...
Tek: IT'S PAYBACK TIME!!
Coldblooded walks over to the security railing, as Roberts slowly stands up, as he grabs....
Erin Robbins: WHAT... THE... HELL... IS THAT?!?
Zach Davis: An ironing board!?!?
WHAM!! WHAM!! WHAM!!
Tek proceeds to set up the ironing board...
Erin Robbins: WHAT NOW?!?!
Crowd: HOLY SHIT!! HOLY SHIT!! HOLY SHIT!!! HOLY SHIT!!
Zach Davis: OH-H-H-... MY-Y-Y-Y... GAW-AW-AWDD-D-D!! Tek just nailed Terry Roberts with a swinging neckbreaker onto the ironing board.
The ironing board is destroyed.
Erin Robbins: I think even Tek got hurt on that one.
No one is moving... The Izod center starts to erupt...
Tek slowly moves and proceeds to grab Synn...
Zach Davis: NO MAN'S LAND!!
Erin Robbins: Gogoplata submission!!
Tek: AH!! AH!! AHH-H-H-H-H!!
Terry Roberts: AHHH-H-H-H-H!!!
Tek digs his thumbs into the eyes of Synn and the hold is let go. Both men lay there, trying to catch their breath. Then...
Zach Davis: Both men quickly get up and charge for the fans.
Synn grabs for one thing as Tek grabs for another.
Erin Robbins: HOLY SHIT!!!
Zach Davis: ERIN!!
Erin Robbins: Look at what they have in their hands!!!
Roberts as a glass light tube wrapped in barbed wire, while Tek has a....
Zach Davis: WHA-A-A-AT?!?! I haven't seen on of those in a long time!!!
....A BARBED WIRED TEDDY RUXPIN!!
Erin Robbins: A mechanical, battery operated toy bear, that sings?!?!? GOOD GOD!!!
Tek grabs the toy bear wrapped in barbed wire and digs it into the head of Terry Roberts.
Roberts fights back the pain and....
A white smoke explodes everywhere as the light bulb is shattered over the back of Tek.
Crowd: THIS IS AWESOME!! <clap-clap!! clap-clap-clap!!> THIS IS AWESOME!! <clap-clap!! clap-clap-clap!!> THIS IS AWESOME!! <clap-clap!! clap-clap-clap!!>
Synn grabs Tek and throws him back into the ring, grabbing a chair in the process, taking it into the ring.
Zach Davis: What diabolical plan does Terry Roberts have with that chair?!
Erin Robbins: I guess we'll have to wait and see, won't we?
Roberts sets the chair up, in the center of the ring. Tek is still somewhat rolling around with little shards of glass in his skin. Synn grabs Tek and....
Zach Davis: Body slam by Terry Roberts!!
Synn picks up Tek...
Tek hits with a quick back fist to the midsection of Terry Roberts...
Erin Robbins: IMPLANT DDT!!
Tek leaves the ring...
Zach Davis: Where is he going?!
Tek goes outside of the ring and approaches some fans, who throw food and their drinks at him....
The fans: YOU SUCK!! YOU SUCK!! YOU SUCK!! YOU SUCK!!
Tek grabs for several things...
Erin Robbins: What does Tek have?!
Coldblooded has a small box with Hulk gloves wrapped in barbed wire and a plastic lightsaber wrapped in barbed wire.
Zach Davis: WHAT THE HELL?!?!
Tek drops those two items onto the mat and he proceeds to dump the contents of the box onto the mat, as well.
Erin Robbins: LEGO PIECES?!?!
Zach Davis: NO!! LEGO PIECES WRAPPED IN BARBED WIRE!!
Terry Roberts slowly stands up as Tek walks over to him...
Erin Robbins: Leg trap sunset flip powerbomb!!
Zach Davis: Apparently that powerbomb was on those barb wired lego pieces.
Tek is picked and lego pieces are stuck on Tek's back. Roberts grabs for the Hulk gloves wrapped in barbed wire, as Tek grabs for the light saber wrapped in barbed wire.
Terry Roberts: AHHHHHH-HH-H-HHH-HH!!
Erin Robbins: Synn ddt's Tek onto the mat!!
Zach Davis: Both men look spent, tired and beat up!!
Crowd: MATCH IS AWESOME!! <clap-clap!! clap-clap-clap!!> MATCH IS AWESOME!! <clap-clap!! clap-clap-clap!!> MATCH IS AWESOME!! <clap-clap!! clap-clap-clap!!>
Synn throws his arms into the air....
Terry Roberts: NOW IT'S TIME!!!
Synn grabs Tek and places him on Roberts' shoulders. The Hellraiser lifts Tek up. Synn throws his own legs out as Tek falls stomach first onto his shoulder. With the momentum from Tek falling onto the shoulder, Synn uses an Arn Anderson spine buster to finish off Tek.
Zach Davis: FREEFALL POWERBOMB!!
Roberts makes the cover, as Stanley Moser slides into position....
The Izod center erupts...
Kyle Steel: THE WINNER OF THE MATCH...."THE HE-ELLRAI-AISER" TER-ER-ERY-YY RO-O-OBER-ER-ERTS!!
Kyle Steel: The following contest is scheduled for one fall!
All of the lights in the arena dim simultaneously... Next, a massive pulsing light pierces through the vicinity as a barrage of pyrotechnics erupt. Smoke pours from the stage in the midst of various colors & hues. "Rich As Fuck" by Lil' Wayne featuring 2 Chainz pumps from the speakers as Jonathan Jakobs emerges from behind the curtains. He briefly stops and places his right fist in the air, the crowd boos in utter disgust. Jonathan strides down to the ring as he simply grins at a few of the fans in disdain as he makes his way toward the ring. He quickly steps in to wait for his opponent!
Zach Davis: And Jonathan Jakobs is set here tonight to take on one Frank Patrick Venable!
Kyle Steel: Introducing first, standing at 6’ 6” tall, weighing in at 235 lbs., from Houston, TX, please welcome Bravado member Jonathan Jakobs!
Erin Robbins: Yes and he has a point to prove here tonight, that he is to be taken seriously.
"Ghosts n' Stuff" by deadmau5 starts playing all through the Izod center as the lights turn to a blood red as the crowd stands up on their feet and FPV with his signature duster and t-shirt comes out through the curtains. He plays to excited crowd like the circus ringmaster, fistbumping furiously along with the crowd and the music, and each fistbump triggers an explosion of black pyro from the stage.
Zach Davis: And here comes Frank Patrick Venable all set to compete here tonight.
Kyle Steel: And his opponent, making his way to the ring, standing at 5’ 11”, weighing in at 205 lbs., from Atlanta, Georgia, he is Frank Patrick Venable, F.P.V.!
FPV takes the walk down the ramp, slapping fans hands before climbing the steps and on top of the turnbuckles, where he fistbumps one more time, sending one more explosion of pyro throughout the arena. He climbs into the ring and sits in a lotus position in the corner, waiting for the match to start.
Kyle Steel: Ladies and gentlemen, the following contest is scheduled for one fall and it is for the EPPW Television Championship! Introducing first, the challenger from Houston, TX, he stands at 6’ 6” tall and weighs in at 235 lbs., he is Bravado member Jonathan Jakobs!
Crowd boos loudly for this
Zach Davis: And here is a young man looking for gold although his associates are not of the best repute.
Kyle Steel: And his opponent, from Antarctica, Colorado, standing at 6’ 1”, weighing in at 249 lbs., he is the leader of Cryogenix, the EPPW Television Champion, Cryogenix Prime himself, The FPV!
Crowd cheers for FPV
Zach Davis: And this crowd solidly behind the FPV obviously as Bravado is not all that well liked.
Erin Robbins: Being liked means nothing if you’re not respected. Bravado is respected, I can’t say the same for FPV.
Zach Davis: Your opinion I suppose.
Erin Robbins: Yes it is my opinion, that’s why I’m out here, I get paid to voice my opinion, I am the color analyst!
The two men square off against each other in the ring, as the official signals for the bell, the lock up. FPV quickly takes the upper hand with a couple of knees to the gut of Jakobs, who inverts into his stomach in defense, dropping his arms and leaving susceptible to a couple of sharp lefts. FPV grabs Jakobs by the wrist and swings him into the ropes, using the force of the bounce, Jakobs turns on the ropes and nails FPV with a clothesline. FPV jumps straight up on impact and nails a hard shoulder to Jakobs gut. As Jakobs retracts from the force, FPV lands a couple more hard shoulders to the mid section, then pulls up from his knee into a standing position. As he pulls up, Jakobs kicks off the ropes and nails a bulldog! FPV is lying face down as Jakobs rolls him over for an early pin....
Erin Robbins: Not even close!
Zach Davis: Surely Jakobs wasn't expecting it to be this easy! Not even a one count!
Both men are back to their feet and they lock up once again, they start trading blow for blow, Jakobs lands a hard elbow to FPV's jaw, FPV returns the shot with a forearm to the cheekbone of Jakobs. The two break apart, as he steps back, FPV nails a kick to the temple of Jakobs, who stumbles slightly shaking his head to loosen up the cobwebs, capitalizing on the distraction, FPV pulls back against the ropes and uses the added momentum to hit a spear straight to Jakobs midsection, hitting him hard enough to propel them both through the middle ropes and onto the mats on the outside of the ring. FPV's shoulder has an unfortunate collision with the barrier as they land, which causes his to pull back, rolling it to loosen it.
Zach Davis: Ouch! Doesn't look like that was part of the plan....
Erin Robbins: Well, that's what he gets for trying to show off!
Not wanting to lose momentum, FPV begins stomping on Jakobs who is lying prone on the floor, he pulls his shoulder up and tries to roll out from under FPV's boot. FPV just stomps harder, nailing every hit on a different body part, ignoring the calls of the official.
FPV continues to pound on Jakobs, a small smile on his lips. Jakobs manages to grab the ankle of FPV as his foot comes down and pulls up, in a kind of makeshift leg sweep. FPV flies backward hitting those mats hard, not having enough time to trigger his hands to break the fall. Both men lie flat on the mat, catching their breath.
They both make a move to get up, Jakobs grabs the commentators desk and yanks himself up, thrusting himself under the bottom rope as he rolls back into the ring. FPV, who seems to be favoring that knocked shoulder, pulls into a standing position on the apron, he jumps over the top rope and nails both feet to the back of Jakobs, hitting the mat hard, his move has the desired effect as Jakobs lands face first, eating canvas hard. FPV starts to climb the turnbuckle as Jakobs rolls over, trying to regain enough composure to stand, FPV then leaps from the top of the turnbuckle.
Zach Davis: Senton Splash!!
Erin Robbins: And he's going for the pin!
3 …. NO
Jakobs just gets the shoulder up in time, FPV slaps the mat in frustration and jumps up, pulling Jakobs up to a standing position. FPV nails a few, almost casual shots around the head and upper body of Jakobs, who still appears stunned and twists his arm under a few times, stamping down onto the canvas to add pressure before whipping him against the ropes, moving back to back as a set up.
Zach Davis: And it looks like FPV is going to set him up here but wait, Jakobs is able to move slip away, counter as FPV eats the turnbuckle. FPV however quickly turns around as Jakobs is waiting and slaps him right across the face!
Erin Robbins: Jakobs asserting his dominance here showing him that FPV needs to respect Bravado!
Zach Davis: And FPV is not going to take that as he just shakes his head and meets Jakobs with a DDT instead! Cover!
Zach Davis: But a kickout from Jonathan Jakobs. Confidence can be good, arrogance can be damning.
As Jakobs is down from the DDT and looks almost out, FPV decides to go up to the top rope.
Zach Davis: And looks like FPV is going to up high here, taking a risk. I don’t know about this. The crowd completely behind him.
Crowd: FPV! FPV! FPV!
Erin Robbins: And he connects with Jakobs hitting him with a Butterfly Tornado DDT but can he take advantage. FPV rolls over and cover!
Zach Davis: And no, Jakobs kicks out. FPV looking to put Jakobs away again but Jakobs being resilient here tonight.
Jakobs slowly gets up and goes to the corner of the ring. Look of surprise on his face. He decides to step out of the ring to take a breather.
Erin Robbins: Get back in there and fight already!
Zach Davis: The ref starting his count.
Zach Davis: But I don’t think FPV is going to put up with any of Jakobs’ antics here tonight. After what happened last week, I think he knows better than that.
Erin Robbins: But FPV is now on the top turnbuckle, this is high risk here!
Zach Davis: Jakobs just turning around but too late as FPV nails another Butterfly Tornado DDT on Jakobs. Both men down now outside the ring as the referee is looking at the carnage right now and restarts his count.
Erin Robbins: FPV taking a high risk move but it could very well pay off. As FPV is starting to regroup here, he grabs Jakobs and throws him back in the ring. FPV slides back in and cover on Jakobs.
Zach Davis: And Jakobs barely kicks out of that one. FPV showing Jakobs here tonight but also Jakobs showing FPV that he is a serious contender here.
Erin Robbins: Oh absolutely, he is a member of Bravado after all.
Zach Davis: I suppose … regardless, Jakobs is still down right now as FPV is getting up, he’s grabbing Jakobs by the legs and oh no, the Nagata Lock!
Erin Robbins: And Jakobs is now in tremendous pain as this figure four variant is very difficult to escape.
Zach Davis: Lifting his arm and no, Jakobs is still in this! He’s hanging on here. He’s really trying to pull FPV closer to punch him but can’t reach. Jakobs dragging himself as fast as he can to the ropes for leverage.
Erin Robbins: And Jakobs is able to finally reach the ropes. FPV better break the hold otherwise he could lose this match!
Zach Davis: And the referee’s count only to two as FPV releases the hold. He goes after Jakobs but oh no, Jakobs lowers the ropes and FPV goes over. And now a smirk on the face of Jakobs.
Jakobs raises his hand with a smirk on his face here as FPV is down on the outside.
Crowd: You suck! You suck! You suck!
Zach Davis: Jakobs’ smirk remains despite the crowd being all over him.
Erin Robbins: As well it should, he needs to worry about what’s going on in the ring and take care of business. What they think is irrelevant!
Zach Davis: FPV regrouping and he’s back in the ring. Jakobs now stomping FPV in the gut over and over trying to wear him down as he has not been able to get any offense in until this point in the matchup. Jakobs really taking the wind out of FPV here and looks like he’s grabbing his legs and he wants to set him up for the sharpshooter, I guess an homage to his boss.
Erin Robbins: But FPV knows it’s coming, he’s fighting back and manages to kick Jakobs away toward the ropes. Jakobs coming back however and grabbing the legs again, Jakobs kicks FPV in the gut this time and turns him around and sharpshooter is now locked in on FPV.
Zach Davis: FPV in tremendous pain here but he manages to get to the bottom rope. Referee instructing Jakobs to break the hold here.
Referee: 1. 2. 3. 4.
Zach Davis: And Jakobs breaks the hold just barely before a count of 5, he needs to be careful to not disqualify himself here otherwise he loses this match.
Erin Robbins: Perhaps but he’s being crafty. Jakobs is looking for acceptance, for validation and he will not bend the rules more than he has to because he ultimately is here to win! That’s what gets you ahead in this business!
Zach Davis: FPV recovering here as the referee forces Jakobs to step back. FPV is getting up and Jakobs is trying to sneak by but FPV meets him first with a hit right to the face. Jakobs responds with another strike to FPV’s face. These men trading blows here, one after the other and it looks like FPV is getting the upper hand here. And Jakobs is now almost out of it. FPV grabs Jakobs and bam, DDT, nails another DDT on Jonathan Jakobs.
Erin Robbins: Cover!
Zach Davis: And Jonathan Jakobs barely managing to get his shoulder up. What a close combat this has been thus far, many near falls and both men really pushing themselves here.
Erin Robbins: Jakobs really being pushed to his limit and I think FPV is surprised that Jakobs has been taking it to him here.
Zach Davis: Yes, both have been putting on a great match thus far. And FPV is going to try and finish Jakobs off. Jakobs is down on the mat, FPV trying to bring Jakobs up and set him up for the Ice Cap but Jakobs ducks it and wow, out of nowhere, he kicks FPV down with “Blood Money”.
Erin Robbins: I think the FPV may be out cold! Cover!
Zach Davis: And Jonathan Jakobs pulls off a victory against FPV!
Crowd boos loudly
Kyle Steel: Ladies and gentlemen, your winner of this match, Bravado member Jonathan Jakobs!
Erin Robbins: Wow, what a matchup! And a deserved victory by a deserving individual. Congratulations to Jonathan Jakobs.
Zach Davis: Hard fought match this week, he earned the victory I have to admit. As much as it pains me that he is a member of Bravado but he did earn that victory here tonight and showed why he belongs here in EPPW!
Erin Robbins: Absolutely! No one can doubt the credentials of this man as he’s beaten some big names like FPV here!
Zach Davis: True but he has to capitalize but for now, Ultimate Showdown is a big win for Jonathan Jakobs!
The tron above the stage fizzes to life, and we see Denise D'evil on the screen. She smiles as the crowd cheers loudly, while a few boo. Behind her the Eiffel Tower glows brightly, and the traffic moves by quickly.
Erin Robbins: What in the hell is going on?
Zach Davis: I don't know but it looks like D'evil isn't with us here at the arena tonight.
Erin Robbins: I could have sworn I saw her earlier tonight.
Denise D'Evil: Hello to all of my fans in East Rutherford! I'm afraid I couldn't be there tonight. I had something come up, and it had to be done.
The crowd boos, as Denise just holds up a hand, and smiles.
Zach Davis: I'm sure that everyone here is very disappointed that she's not here tonight.
Erin Robbins: I know I'm glad she's not here.
Zach Davis: Why not? She's one of the best superstars we have here.
Erin Robbins: She lost her title to Purse and then from what I heard backed out of the match here tonight for a chance at any of the titles.
Denise D'Evil: I know a lot of you think I backed out of the main event tonight, but I didn't. But I do want to throw out a challenge to Purse and Price. I know you're there and you're listening, and what I say is this... Next week I want to face Purse and Price in a Tag team match. My partner will be...
The crowd cheers loudly, as she looks down at something in front of her, and then looks up with her eyes almost seem to be filled with rage and fire.
Denise D'Evil: My partner will be OBLIVION!!!
Zach Davis: OH MY GOD! OH MY GOD! She chose the beast for her partner next week! But will the management allow it?
Erin Robbins: I don't know but it's going to be some match! I didn't think D'evil would ever team up with the man that nearly broke her.
The crowd gos wild, as she smiles.
Denise D'Evil: I hope you two sleep well because after this match your life will be filled with nothing more than nightmares from the Angels of Death.
With that the screen goes to static once again, as the arena goes dark. As the lights come up in the middle of the ring is a symbol with black Angel wings with a scythe in the middle of it.
Zach Davis: How in the hell did that happen?
Erin Robbins: I don't know, but that was one hell of a challenge that she just threw out there. We'll be back after this.
Orion by Metallica begins to play. The drums begin to get louder and louder, right as the lead in guitar riff is about to start...
The lights in the arena dim as Pyrotechnics explode along the runway and from the four corner posts as Night Rider steps out from behind the curtain and stops, as the music begins to blend in with....
BREATHE WITH ME....
The crowd inside the Izod Center erupts in a chorus of boos. The house lights go out. The crowd begins to murmur. Strobe lights begin to flash, as bright white lasers begin to flash. Two bright spotlights hit the entrance stage. The music continues to thump with a remix of Orion with Breathe by The Prodigy. Some of the fans are thrashing and/or dancing a long with the music...
Kyle Steel: This match is for the EPPW Tag Team Championship. On their way to the ring now with a combined weight of 640 pounds... THEY ARE THE A.... O.... D..... THE ANGELS OF DEATH!!!
Night Rider and Oblivion walk down the entrance ramp to the ring. The Vixens follow them as the Gathering scatters throughout the crowd. The camera zooms in on both men inside the ring standing with a look of hatred burning in their eyes.
Erin Robbins: It may just be me but the two of them look even more focused than they were last week. We all know how crazy that was.
Zach Davis: They will need to be focused stepping into the ring against the Tag Team Champions.
Erin Robbins: Don't forget that both Night Rider and Oblivion are former Tag Team Champions. Night Rider with Jeff Purse and Oblivion with Greenfever. They know what it takes to win the titles.
“Chicken in Black” By Johnny Cash blasts over the PA system. John Gobble struts out from behind the curtain. His head wildly jerks around but slaps himself out of it.
Kyle Steel: Coming to the ring weighing in at 221 pounds. JOHN…Gobble…
He rushes down to the ring and struts up the steps. He grabs the ropes then hops over and walks to the turnbuckle. Jumping up, his head jerked around wildly, observing the crowd like a nervous bird.

Savage holds the belt high above his head, legs in an open stance as Ana Valentine steps out from behind the curtain, she leans a hand on Scott's shoulder for a moment before dropping down into a jazz split, then onto her knees she slips between Scott's legs, before running a hand up to his belt buckle, which she uses to pull herself up into a standing position, her body using his for balance.She turns on her heels and looks back over her shoulder to wink at Scott before they make their way down the ramp.
The crowd start to chant S-L-U-T! S-L-U-T!

Zach Davis: Wham, He hits it. Night Rider goes for the cover.
NO, Somehow Gobble is able to get his foot on the ropes. Night Rider slaps the mat three times quickly indicating a slow count. He stands and argues with the ref and begins pushing him backwards. Gobble takes the opportunity to roll to his corner and tag in Valentine. The ref doesn't see it and as valentine grabs Night Rider and flips him over her shoulder down hard onto the mat. The ref forces her out of the ring and makes Gobble come back in. Night Rider tags in Oblivion who rushes John Gobble and hits him with a Running Headbutt. Gobble drops to one knee and shakes his head trying to clear the cobwebs. He digs deep down inside and as Oblivion attempts to pick him up he catches him in a small cradle. The ref slides into position but Oblivion breaks the hold before he could begin to count. Gobble rolls and stretches out his hand. He is just about to tag in Valentine when.... Wham, Oblivion drops an elbow on his back. Oblivion picks up Gobble and connects with a fireman's carry into a piledriver and goes for the pin.
No, Gobble somehow gets the shoulder up. Oblivion picks up Gobble and tags in Night Rider once again. Oblivion slams Gobble down to the mat and moments later Night Rider hits him with a leg drop. Night Rider picks up Gobble and connects with a snap ddt. Night Rider climbs to the top rope. Night Rider leaps and his leg hits the mat just moments after Gobble slides out of the way. Gobble tags in Valentine as Night Rider sits writhing in pain. Valentine hits him with drop kick that bounces his head off of the mat. Valentine climbs to the top rope and connects with a frog splash. Valentine picks up Night Rider and connects with the Cupids Bow Spinebuster. Valentine goes for the pin.
Erin Robbins: Valentine with the pin and S-Pac retains the titles.
Zach Davis: Yes, But it wasn't easy. The AoD gave them one hell of a match. I have a feeling that this isn't over yet.
When the referee steps out to pick up the tag team titles, Scott Savage grabs a steel chair from ringside before he enters the ring .
Zach Davis: Oh boy, this does NOT look good, Savage just stepped into the ring with bad intentions written all over his face.
Erin Robbin: Looks like he plans on making a statement Zach.
Savage measures up Oblivion, winding back swinging the chair with all his might from behind with the chair, the force of the blow knocking Oblivion out on to the arena floor.
Zach Davis: OH, Oblivion blasted to the outside of the ring, that leaves Nightrider in the ring all by himself.
Erin Robbins: This doesn't look good for Nightrider, it's a three on one and Nightrider is on the wrong side of those numbers.
Savage turns to Night Rider, once again measuring up swinging back wide, smashing him over the head with the chair.
Zach Davis: What a hit, Nightrider is in a bad situation here
Erin Robbins: Got to give the guy points for toughness, taking a hit like that, he's dazed and glassy eyed, but refuses to go down.
Savage hands the chair to Valentine, as he and John Gobble each grab one arm, holding Nightrider steadfast in place, rendering him further defenseless, Ana then begins hitting Night Rider repeatedly, before Savage and Gobble release him. Blood pours from Night Riders head as he falls to the mat.
Zach Davis: This just uncalled for, can we get some help down here, for the love of god they made their point already
Erin Robbins: It appears they are using the Angels of Death to send a message to Bravado, and Eric Price.
Zach Davis: Good grief, point made already move on.
Erin Robbins: Not even close Zach, it looks like their about to put several exclamation points to this statement
Zach Davis: NO NO NO, come on where is security, don't let them get away with this!!!
Back in the ring, Valentine places Night Riders leg inside the chair smiling like the devil as she climbs to the top rope while Savage and Gobble hold the near unconscious Night Rider down.
Zach Davis: THEY'RE TRYING TO END HIS CAREER!!!
At that moment the fans start cheering as Denise D'Evil runs to the ring!
Erin Robbins: Uh, I thought she wasn't here!
Zach Davis: Maybe that was all part of their plan? Throw S-PAC off in case this kind of thing happened?
Ana points Savage and Gobble's attention to her, Savage jumps out, grabbing a second steel chair, walloping Oblivion in the back for good measure to keep him a non factor, before sliding back, handing the chair to Gobble, as Denise reaches ringside, the two stand next to the ropes, creating a blockade of sorts. Seeing she is outnumbered, and proverbially outgunned, Denis stops short of getting into the ring, she quickly takes stock of the situation, trying to formulate a game plane,
Zach Davis: Thank God, the Deathbringer coming to the rescue of her stablemates.
Erin Robbins: Don't count your eggs yet, Zach, Ana is still on the top turnbuckle, in two seconds she can destroy Nightriders knee.
Denise paces outside, desperately wanting to save her stable mate, she quickly goes to check on Oblivion, hoping to even the odds. Helping him up, they look at the situation together, it's not long before there is a commotion on the other side, fans there are cheering and hollering.
Zach Davis: I can't see who it is, but there seems to be someone coming through the fans to the ring.
This is just enough to divide the attention of S-Pac, the entire arena explodes when Terry Roberts emerges from the crowd quickly sliding into the ring
Zach Davis: THE HELLRAISER!! WHAT IS HE DOING HERE?!
Erin Robbins: Raising hell, of course, oh man this just got interesting, he has bad blood with Oblivion, could he be here to help S-PAC??
As if to answer that question, Terry unstraps the steel reinforced guitar from his back, swings it around three times before quickly sliding it under Scott Savage's feet, to the outside of the ring....
Zach Davis: RIGHT INTO OBLIVION'S HANDS!!! HOLY SHIT ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!
Oblivion, as if suddenly recharged, gets wide eyed with a maniacal smile on his face, he raises the guitar high into the air, as Scott Savage, John Gobble and Ana Valentine look on not liking the turn of events.
Erin Robbins: SHIT! TERRY JUST HANDED SHERRI RIGHT INTO THE HANDS OF OBLIVION!!
The crowd erupts once more as Roberts hits Savage with a clothesline sending him flying over the ropes. Oblivion takes the opportunity of Terry's distraction to slide into the ring, he swings the guitar wide and hard at Gobble, who deftly ducks it, high tailing it out of the ring, Deathbringer climbs up onto the ring apron and knocks Valentine off of the ropes. Valentine falls out onto Gobble as savage runs over to make sure she is okay. Roberts and Oblivion help Night Rider to his feet as the four of them stand with their arms raised in the air.
Zach Davis: HELLRAISER HAS JOINED A.O.D??
Erin Robbins: WHAT? Angels of Death has a new member, Shit just got crazy up in here!!
Zach Davis: And finally... time for the Ultimate Showdown match.
Erin Robbins: Literally everything is on the line here. The future of all the Titles, the World Title indirectly... rivalries such as Purse/Price and Phantasm/NvL... Odin and Bravado...
Zach Davis: The Rookie's surprise entry into this match... Joe's clutch of the People's Title... Jay Price's attempt to rise back to the top.... what's going to happen!?
Erin Robbins: Let's find out!
A soft, unnamed violin piece begins to play over the PA, calm and collected. Such an odd entrance for Nathan von Liebert who steps out onto the entrance ramp, wearing his street clothes with a straight jacket linking his arms. Walking almost as if drunk to the music, Nathan makes his way down the ramp. He shies away from the hands, shrugging off the boos as he makes his way to the ring. No steps for NvL, who practically dives beneath the bottom rope into the ring. Nathan rises his knees and begins to scan the arena around him. And then he begins to shake, to try and break free of his bindings. With each tremor, each contortion of his body, the violin piece picks up in volume. Almost to the point of eardrum shattering, Nathan's right arm is suddenly free of the straps, and a single red hand raises to the sky above.
"AHHHHHH, AHHHHHHHHH, AHHHHHHHHHHH"
Three blood-curdling screams sound off throughout the arena, all three recognizable by any hardcore WCF fan. The first had the lowest pitch, and it was of Johnny Nova. The second of Roxanne, Waylon's girl. The third and final scream was that of Nightmare, Polar Phantasm's wife. And with that, the arena fell deathly silent as NvL frees himself from the jacket, tossing out of the ring waiting for the match to begin.
Zach Davis: Nathan von Liebert has been involved in some of the sickest, most violent feuds this company has ever seen. Including what he's done to the Polar Phantasm's wife, Nightmare.
“ 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 insanely 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 stepping 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 triumph. Odin turns back to the ring as the fans finish their part.
Crowd: The battle is.. already won!
Odin stares down his opponents as he waits for the match to get underway.
Erin Robbins: Odin Balfore is only in this match because Seth fucks up sometimes, quite frankly. He got suspended... but now he's back.
4 Words To Choke Upon by Bullet for My Vallentine blasts through the speakers. Many people anticipate who it is. After the intro of the song, 'The Rookie' Thomas Buckley comes out from backstage and raises his arm to the crowd.
Kyle Steel: From Kansas, New Jersey...weighing 176 lbs...The Rookie...THOMAS BUCKLEEEEY!!!!
Thomas Buckley walks down the ramp with newfound confidence on his face. Reaching the ring, he climbs on the apron and goes through the ropes. He looks at his opponents and begins to warm up.
Zach Davis: Very modest entrance for this young man, confused about the song choice but hey. He looks up to many of the wrestlers in this match and apparently got into it because Seth was impressed by his performance last week.
Erin Robbins: Yeah, that, or he just wanted someone easy for Eric to beat up.
"The Number Six" by Lamb Of God hits as Jay Price strolls out from the back, his eyes hidden behind a pair of large aviator sunglasses. He'll lower the glasses a bit as he scans the crowd before pushing them back up and heading down the ramp. He'll then slide in under the bottom rope and pop up to his feet before walking over to the corner where he climbs up to the second rope. After scanning the crowd again he'll hop down to the mat and lean against the ropes as he waits for the match to start.
Zach Davis: And here is Jay Price. Jay has done it all in this company... well, almost all. He's never won an Ultimate Showdown match.
The Arena Goes Dark, and then all simultaneously "Radioactive" by the Imagine Dragons starts to play as blue and white neon lights flicker and pulse to the beat of the music. Fog fills up the entrance ramp as Steeltoe Joe comes walking out of the midst of the fog. Joe looks around at all the fans who once cheered him... Booing him as loud as they can. You can tell there is no longer any love for the "People's Pastor." Joe walks slow and meticulously down the ramp, he jumps up and down like he is loosening up for his match. He steps up the ring steps and then climbs the turnbuckle closest to him. Joe points to the sky and then raises his arms in victory. Joe then jumps down and poses his massive muscles to the camera as he pulls on the ring rope, stretching for his match.
Erin Robbins: Here is the greatest People's Champion of all time, Steeltoe Joe! No one has been able to take that People's Championship off of him. The only way he'll lose it tonight is if he trades up for a higher belt. It's kind of a shame for him to lose it that way, though. No one would have ever beaten him otherwise however, I guess.
The big screen flashes to a blank screen... with a cursor? Suddenly, text appears... "Iceberg-Seven online... accessing WCF big screen. Access granted... running program 'Polar Phantasm Entrance'." The cursor moves across the screen slowly, as if loading something... and then the screen clears itself once more. Then, two words appear: "CRYOGENIX PRIME". "Synchronicity (part 2)" by The Police begins playing over the loudspeakers as two white spotlights train on the entrance. The curtain parts... and out comes the Polar Phantasm. On the screen behind the Phantasm, we can see the words 'Polar Phantasm' have bled in slowly beneath 'Cryogenix Prime'... Polar slaps a few audience members' hands on his way through the arena, then slides beneath the bottom rope and into the ring. Polar takes a quick look around the crowd... and then stares down his opponents.
Zach Davis: And here is the leader of Cryogenix, the Television Champion, the Polar Phantasm! He'll stop at nothing to defeat Bravado.
Erin Robbins: Heh. Yeah, we'll see how that works out.
Gold lights will start flashing as You Know My Name 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. 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.
Zach Davis: Here's the United States Champion, Eric Price.
Erin Robbins: And more importantly, the CEO of the company! Long live EPPW!
Zach Davis: Yeah, we'll see just how long Bravado lasts if Price wins that World Title shot. See if Sarah likes that.
"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.
Erin Robbins: BOO.
Zach Davis: And lastly here is Jeff Purse! The Hardcore Champion, capturing that belt from Denise D'Evil, who was originally scheduled to be in this match.
The bell sounds... and the match is on! Naturally, everyone with an ally moves towards those allies. Purse, Phantasm and Jay all stand near one another, as Nathan, Eric and Joe do as well. This leaves The Rookie and Odin Balfore.
Erin Robbins: How is this situation going to play out? This isn't a tag match but it almost looks like one.
All of a sudden the members of Cryogenix rush the members of Bravado! The crowd cheers as those six men begin brawling. Purse and Eric brawl, Phantasm and von Liebert, and Jay and Joe. Buckley, very cautiosly, moves towards the corner and waits for the chaos to sort itself out.
Zach Davis: This is, naturally, madness. I pity the ref.
Phantasm has von Liebert on the ropes. He runs at him, going to Clothesline him over, but NvL bends down and hits a Back Bodydrop, sending Phantasm over and tumbling to the outside. Without missing a beat von Liebert turns around, backs up a few paces, then runs and connects with a Suicide Dive!
Erin Robbins: Nathan von Liebert, taking it to the Polar Phantasm!
Meanwhile, thanks to his enormous size, Joe took what Jay had and is still standing. Joe hits Price with a huge clubbing blow before throwing him to the ropes and then putting him into a Bear Hug.
Zach Davis: Joe has to be a favorite in this match. He's massive, has two allies, and has been on a hell of a winning streak for a long time.
However, Jay is soon able to lift his arms up and clap them against the big man's head. Jay breaks free of the Bear Hug and Dropkicks Joe, sending the big man flying backwards and out of the ring. Jay gets on the apron...
Erin Robbins: Is he going high risk?
Jay acts like he's going to do a Moonsault... and just jumps off instead, hitting an Axehandle Smash to Joe. The fans boo him briefly. Price ignores it and grabs the big man, throwing him into the ring steps!
Zach Davis: Smart move. If you're going to beat Joe, use whatever means you have available to you. Like big metal steps.
In the ring, Eric Price has gotten advantage over Jeff Purse, thanks to a well timed poke to the eyes. He hits a European Uppercut, sending Purse reeling... only to turn around into a Big Boot from Odin Balfore!
Erin Robbins: Oh shit!
Zach Davis: Odin Balfore finally inserts himself! He waited to pick his spot, and damn, he just about took Eric's head off!
Balfore quickly goes for a pin.
No, the former Champion kicks out. Balfore lifts him up and Headbutts him, sending him reeling. Eric flies towards Buckley, who quickly moves out of the way. Price is seen asking Buckley for help.
Erin Robbins: That's awfully big of Eric, enlisting Buckley as an ally of Bravado.
Zach Davis: I don't think that's it, Erin.
Buckley looks like he doesn't know what to do. Price is prone in the corner, Odin runs at him and goes for a Clothesline, but Price sidesteps it. He drops and low blows Odin before grabbing him and executing a Backbreaker. He then approaches Buckley and extends his hand.
Erin Robbins: See? He's going to shake Buckley's hand!
Zach Davis: Don't trust him, Rookie...
However, the Rookie is practically star struck. He accepts Price's hand, shaking it vigorously. The duo then starts kicking away at Odin Balfore.
Zach Davis: Let's be real. Eric is going to turn on Buckley the first chance it's convenient for him.
Erin Robbins: Have a little faith, Zach. Eric Price IS fair leadership.
Price lifts Odin up and holds him, instructing Buckley to give him some strikes. Slightly nervous, the Rookie obliges, hitting Odin with several shots to the face. This soon enrages the Maverick, however, who elbows Eric, breaking free. The Rookie goes wide eyed as Odin Clotheslines him down and locks him into a Triangle Choke!
Zach Davis: Maverick's Whim! He's got it locked in! This could be it for Thomas Buckley!
But Eric Price, surprisingly, makes the save, breaking up the move! Price kicks Odin viciously in the head before taking him back down with a Legsweep DDT.
Erin Robbins: Odin may be a beast but against the combined might of Eric Price and Thomas Buckley, no one is unstoppable.
On the outside, Nathan von Liebert and the Polar Phantasm's fight has spilled out into the crowd. They're brawling with one another wildly, and security guards surround them, trying to protect the fans. Nathan grabs a nearby chair and whacks Phantasm over the head with it. But he doesn't go down!, he simply is sent reeling. Nathan raises the chair for another strike but Phantasm sees it coming and jabs him in the gut. NvL doubles over and Phantasm yanks the chair from him and hits Nathan with it, straight to the head as well! Nathan won't go down either... that is, until Phantasm hits him with a huge elbow right to the face!
Zach Davis: Hey wait a minute... something looks off about that elbow pad. It was loaded!
Erin Robbins: What a cheater!
Zach Davis: That, or he's been taking elbowing lessons from Corey Black.
Nathan is only down for a second as the Phantasm picks him back up and throws him into a merchandise table. He grabs a Bravado t-shirt - without paying for it! - and wraps it around Nathan's throat, choking him.
Erin Robbins: Shouldn't there be disqualifications here? Come on! What dirty tactics.
Zach Davis: After everything Bravado has put Cryogenix through, and all of WCF, they deserve it! And hell, after what NvL himself has done...
Nathan's face starts to go blue and Phantasm releases the choke before he gets himself a murder charge. He turns, looking for another weapon, but this gives Nathan the chance to grab yet another chair. Phantasm turns, only to get jabbed in the stomach with it. Nathan then grabs Phantasm from behind... right at the merchandise table...
Erin Robbins: YES! YES! DO IT!
Nathan von Liebet hits a German Suplex, sending the Polar Phantasm crashing through the merchandise table! The nearby fans chant "holy shit! holy shit!"
Zach Davis: The Phantasm may have effectively been taken out of this match! He can't continue after that!
Outside the ring, Jay Price has been attempting to wear away at Steeltoe Joe, but to little avail. After any offense Jay gets in, Joe seems to absorb it and fire back with more shots of his own. Joe rolls Jay back into the ring, with his head hanging off the ring itself. Joe, from the outside, then runs at him and boots him right in the head!
Erin Robbins: DAMN! I felt that one from here. Go Joe!
Joe rolls into the ring and pins Jay.
No! Jay kicks out!
Zach Davis: All eight men in this match are incredibly motivated... defeat won't come easily.
Joe picks Price up and hits a Shoulder Thrust, but keeps holding onto Jay. He hits another one, picks Jay back up, hits another one. And another. After the next one Jay has had enough and reverses it into a Headlock Takedown. Joe gets back to his feet and runs at Price. Jay leapfrogs over him, Dropkicks him in the back. Joe bumps into the ropes, stumbles backwards, and Jay hits a Sleeper Slam!
Erin Robbins: Damn. Jay took Joe down with authority. Well, without authority, because he doesn't have any anymore, but y'know.
Jay pins Joe.
No!, Joe kicks out.
Zach Davis: A motivated Jay Price versus the longest reigning People's Champion... who is going to win this battle?
Buckley and Eric have had the better of Odin Balfore in this time period, using the numbers game to their advantage. Every time Odin seems about to strike Buckley, Price stops him.
Erin Robbins: I love the way Eric Price has gone out of his way in such a huge match to take Buckley under his wing. What a guy.
Zach Davis: Wait a minute. Seth puts Buckley in this match, Price allies with him... is Price just trying to get Buckley farther in this match so that he's an easy victory near the end?
Erin Robbins: Poppycock! That's ludicrious. No one from Bravado would ever take part in such a nefarious scheme, especially not a man of integrity like Eric Price.
Eric throws Odin to the ropes and as he's coming back, executes an amazing Olympic Slam! Odin hits the mat and Eric quickly goes for the pin.
No!, Odin powers out of it.
Erin Robbins: I'll give the devil his due: Odin is a big dumb animal and he's strong as hell.
Eric instructs The Rookie to go to the top rope and go for his finisher. The Rookie begins climbing.
Zach Davis: Here comes his Diving Elbow Drop.
Buckley flies off the top for it but Odin rolls away! Eric rushes him but Odin sidesteps him, hits another Big Boot. Buckley is up and Odin hits him with a knock out punch!
Erin Robbins: SURTR's REVENGE!
But Odin isn't done. He climbs to the top....
Zach Davis: What is he doing!? Odin doesn't go high risk like this!
Moving quickly, he breathes heavily before jumping off...
CORKSCREW SHOOTING STAR PRESS!
Erin Robbins: OH MY GOD! I've never seen him do something like this, I didn't know he could. What the hell!
Zach Davis: First elimination, and the Rookie's gone! Good effort by this young man but he allied with the wrong guy.
Eric runs at Odin and Chop Blocks him, taking the big man down from behind. Eric then turns angrily towards Buckley and starts stomping on him.
Erin Robbins: Thats what Buckley gets for failure!
Zach Davis: Come on, Eric, this isn't right! He's already eliminated!
Eric lifts Buckley to his feet, yelling at him, saying that he ruined his plan. He goes so far as to lift him up for a Ca$h Flow!
Zach Davis: NO! Come on!
But Buckley avoids it, slips away, and lifts Price up and hits a BRAINBUSTER!
Erin Robbins: GET OUT OF THERE YOU LITTLE PUNK YOU'RE ELIMINATED WHAT ARE YOU DOING!?
Finally, Buckley does roll out, barely believing that he's hit a Brainbuster on the CEO of the company. Jeff Purse is back in the ring, on the top rope...
Zach Davis: This doesn't look good for Eric.
Jeff flies off with THE DEFLATER!
Erin Robbins: PRICE ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY!
Indeed, Jeff missed it! Eric quickly takes this opportunity to roll up the Hardcore Champion!
NO! Purse kicks out!
Zach Davis: So close, but Price knows that pinning Jeff Purse isn't that easy!
Price lifts Purse up and Odin is about to attack but Nathan von Liebert is back in the ring. He grabs Odin from behind and spins him around, kicks him in the gut and takes him down with a Double Arm DDT.
Erin Robbins: Bravado is just plain unbeatable.
Eric lifts Purse to his feet, hitting him with several forearms to his head as he does. He sets him up...
Zach Davis: Here comes the Reversal of Fortune. Price has him!
But no!, Purse shoves Price away! Into the waiting grasp of Jay Price!
Erin Robbins: Where'd he come from!?
Jay hits THE DOWNFALL! As soon as Eric's body hits the mat Purse pins him, as Jay makes sure no one breaks it up.
Zach Davis: ERIC PRICE ELIMINATED!
Erin Robbins: NO! THIS ISN'T RIGHT FOR PRICE!
Zach Davis: Doesn't rhyme, not as catchy as "not fair to Flair," but yeah... Eric Price walks out of this match without getting anything!
Eric rolls out of the ring, too dazed to really comprehend what has happened. Inside the ring, Purse and Price turn their attention to Steeltoe Joe and Nathan von Liebert.
Erin Robbins: This is a travesty. There is no justice in the world.
Zach Davis: Think what you want, Erin. Here is where the match really gets interesting. We're going to decide our Champions, and our number one contender. The next person eliminated will pick up the Internet Championship.
Joe and NvL begin brawling with Purse and Price.
Erin Robbins: What an unholy alliance, Steeltoe Joe and Nathan von Liebert. Can you believe it?
Zach Davis: I can't, but they're a force to be reckoned with, that's for sure.
Joe hits Purse with a huge Belly to Belly, just as von Liebert takes Price down with a Snap DDT. Odin is about to get up but the two turn their attention on him next, hitting stiff kicks to his head before picking him up and hitting a Double Suplex. The fans boo.
Erin Robbins: These fans don't know greatness when they see it.
However, a small section of fans begins cheering....
Zach Davis: Look over there... HERE COMES THE POLAR PHANTASM!
Indeed, bruised and battered, the Polar Phantasm is conscious and marching through the crowd! The fans pat him on the back as he climbs over the guardrail and slides into the ring. Naturally, Joe and NvL go right on the attack, kicking at him repeatedly. But Phantasm's got heart, and he works his way to his feet regardless. He blocks one of Nathan's strikes and hits a quick Snapmare. He ducks a Clothesline attempt from Joe and kicks him in the gut before hitting him with a Snap Suplex. Nathan's up, Phantasm grabs him and hits a Snap Sitout Powerbomb!
Erin Robbins: Someone stop this guy!
Zach Davis: The Polar Phantasm is on fire! Not literally, not yet. With Nathan involved you never know.
Joe is up, Phantasm catches him...
Erin Robbins: THE ICE CAP! NO!
Phantasm pins the current People's Champ.
Zach Davis: STEELTOE JOE IS ELIMINATED! We're going to get a new People's Champion!
The crowd roars in disbelief. Phantasm rolls off him as Joe exits the ring.
Erin Robbins: We're down to... only one member of Bravado!? This isn't right. Did Cryogenix pay off that referee?
Somewhere along the way, Joe became busted open. Nathan, who was outside the ring, notices this.
Zach Davis: Uh oh. This isn't good.
Erin Robbins: Oh yes it is. Here comes the REAL Nathan von Liebert.
Nathan slides back into the ring, but he seems like a totally different man, full of rage and energy. He tackles down the Polar Phantasm and hits him with punch after punch after punch, busting him open as well.
Zach Davis: Something changes in Nathan von Liebert when he sees red, and now he's busted open the Phantasm as well... he's going to be tough to deal with if he isn't eliminated very quickly here.
Price and Purse try to pull Nathan off of him, and they do, but Nathan hits a Double Clothesline, taking them down too. He picks Price up and executes a Package Piledriver!
Erin Robbins: YES! Break his neck!
Zach Davis: Calm down, Erin. Geez. Maybe you have a little Vlad inside you?
Erin Robbins: Unlike your former commentating partner, Zach, I don't have strange men inside me, no.
Nathan hits Jeff Purse with a headbutt when Purse attacks him. Before Purse goes too far, Nathan grabs him again and lifts him...
Zach Davis: STRAIGHT. JACKET. DROP.
Erin Robbins: WAIT - NO!
Purse flipped over behind Nathan and slides under the ropes, onto the apron. He Springboards over as Nathan turns around...
Zach Davis: THE FUTURE! 720 DDT! HE HITS IT!
Purse drops and pins Nathan von Liebert, hooking the leg.
NO! Nathan kicks out!
Erin Robbins: YES! BRAVADO IS ALIVE!
Purse keeps on fighting. He grabs Nathan...
Zach Davis: He's going to lock in his Armbar submission hold!
Nathan knows that might mean certain doom and fights out of it. He grabs the ropes and uses them to pull himself up. Purse runs at him but Nathan hits him with a Lariat, taking the Hardcore Champ down. Nathan lifts Purse up but Purse reverses with a Jawbreaker. He runs towards the turnbuckle, jumps up...
Erin Robbins: Anndd Jeff Purse is Taking off the Training Wheels!
Which Nathan sidesteps, and as the groggy and disoriented Jeff turns...
Erin Robbins: STRAIGHTJACKET DROP! THERE IT IS!
Nathan quickly pins his old rival Jeff Purse.
Zach Davis: Whoa. Jeff Purse has been eliminated, and he's our new People's Champion!
Jay Price has gotten to his feet, and Nathan is still all rage. He runs at him, goes for a Hurricanrana...
Erin Robbins: REVERSAL! No!
Jay Price Powerbombs Nathan von Liebert straight into the mat! Price kips up as Nathan gets to his feet.
Zach Davis: Jay Price is looking for revenge for the fallen Jeff Purse... and here it comes!
Nathan is starting to get up and Price kicks him in the head, muay thai style. Over and over and over and over!
Zach Davis: That's his Six Shooter kicking combo, and now he's busted Nathan open. It's safe to say until he's eliminated, Nathan will be in full on Vlad mode.
Price then lifts Nathan up in a Vertical Suplex position..
Erin Robbins: I've seen a lot of Jay Price matches and I can tell from his body language he's not going for a Suplex, he's going for the Final Sunset, his Sheer Drop Brainbuster! This move is so dangerous, come on, Nathan!
Nathan shifts his weight and escapes it, landing behind Price. The crowd boos as Jay spins around and Nathan executes a British Suplex.
Zach Davis: Nathan von Liebert is back in control here.
Nathan backs up as Jay begins to get to his feet. He runs at him...
Erin Robbins: SHINING WIZARD!
No, Price sidesteps it-
Zach Davis: THE DOWNFALL!
NO!, Nathan shoves him away!, Price turns-
Erin Robbins: ANOTHER STRAIGHT JACKET DROP!
And another pin.
Zach Davis: Wow. Nathan von Liebert just took out two members of Cryogenix. He's just.. wow.
Erin Robbins: I love it. Finally, after the injustices suffered by Joe and Eric, Nathan has gotten retribution!
Zach Davis: And Jay Price is our new Television Champion. Two more belts to decide... and the winner of the match.
Nathan stands, turns, and goes face to face... with Odin Balfore.
Erin Robbins: Get 'em, Nathan!
Odin and Nathan begin brawling their hearts out! Lefts and rights, rights and lefts, neither man giving an inch. For all the sadistic rage inside Nathan, Odin has the size advantage. Eventually Odin gets the upper hand, sending Nathan reeling. All the meanwhile, on the outside, the Polar Phantasm has started looking under the ring...
Zach Davis: Here comes a table.
Erin Robbins: This isn't right, we should be enforcing the rules! I don't care if the Hardcore Championship is on the line!
Indeed, Phantasm pulls out a table and slides it into the ring. Finally, Odin has gotten the edge on Nathan, and reels back his fist...
Zach Davis: Here comes another Surtr's Revenge!
He swings but Nathan ducks it. He lifts Odin up-
Erin Robbins: Another Straight Jacket Drop!
But Odin shifts his weight and lands behind Nathan. He grapples him and hits a huge German Suplex into a bridge pin!
No! Nathan kicks out! Odin stands up, turns... WHACK!
Zach Davis: Chair shot from the Phantasm!
Indeed, in addition to the table in the ring, Phantasm has brought in a chair and hit Odin right in the face with it!
Erin Robbins: The Polar Phantasm should get a huge fine for what he's doing here.
Odin goes sprawling and Phantasm turns back towards Nathan. He hits him with the chair, but then throws it to the side and whips Nathan to the turnbuckle. Nathan hits it, and Phantasm then turns him upside down into the tree of woe position before placing a chair in front of his face.
Zach Davis: We've seen THIS before... things don't look good for Nathan!
Phantasm backs up and pounds his chest, yelling "G! E! W!" before running and hitting a Running Dropkick to Nathan's face!
Erin Robbins: No, nononono.
Nathan flails in pain before rolling out of the ring. Odin is stumbling up, but before he can get to his feet Phantasm sets up the table he brought into the ring.
Zach Davis: What does Phantasm have planned here?
He throws Odin to the corner now and then lifts him up on top of it. Phantasm starts climbing up with him; the table is perfectly placed.
Erin Robbins: Oh no... this is just... total fucking overkill.
Zach Davis: He... he's going for the Greetings From New Antarctica!
Indeed, Phantasm has Odin set up...
Erin Robbins: I don't care, go ahead, Phantasm, take Odin out. I hope you get sued.
Zach Davis: Is he gonna pull this off?
Phantasm gets him positioned for his Sitout Gutwrench Powerbomb, he's facing the table....
Erin Robbins: HERE HE GOES!
PHANTASM HITS IT!
Zach Davis: GREETINGS FROM NEW ANTARCTICA! PHANTASM SENDS ODIN THROUGH THE TABLE!
But before Phantasm can capitalize, Nathan is on him, grabbing him and lifting him up...
Erin Robbins: STRAIGHT JACKET DROP ONTO THE STEEL CHAIR!
Nathan von Liebert just hit a Straight Jacket Drop, dropping Phantasm straight onto the steel chair! Phantasm is laying, motionless.
Zach Davis: He may've broken his neck!! Who's getting sued now, Erin!?
Erin Robbins: He was just doing what he had to do to win this match! It's totally different.
Odin also lays motionless, amongst the rubble of the table. Nathan, exhausted, leans back into the turnbuckle.
Zach Davis: What's going to happen here? These men need medical help!
The ref has no choice.... he calls for the bell!
Erin Robbins: YES! NATHAN VON LIEBERT WINS!
Zach Davis: I don't believe this. What about the Hardcore and United States Championships!?
Erin Robbins: Who cares! Bravado is victorious!
Nathan gets his arm raised in the air by the referee. Before his music can play, Seth Lerch steps out onto the stage, mic in hand.
Seth Lerch: Congratulations to your new Ultimate Showdown survivor... NATHAN VOOONNN LIIEEBBEEERRRTTT!
The fans boo, but Nathan doesn't care, naturally. Neither does Seth.
Seth Lerch: However, the referee's decision, and Nathan's wonderfully sadistic move, have left me with a problem. You see, there were supposed to be two falls to decide the last two Champions, and that didn't happen. So... I've got a decision to make.
The fans murmur.
Zach Davis: What's Seth going to do here?
Erin Robbins: Whatever it is, I'm sure it'll be fair.
Seth Lerch: We said from the very beginning this match is the most unpredictable match in the WCF, and this is proving to be the case. The Polar Phantasm and Odin Balfore were both simultaneously the last two eliminations, and as such, they will both be recognized as Co-Hardcore Champions!
Mixed reaction from the crowd.
Zach Davis: How the hell is THAT going to work?
Seth Lerch: This decision has repercussions throughout the rest of the match, however, shifting who gets which belts. Jay Price will now be recognized as the winner of the United States Champion, and Jeff Purse will be recognized as the Television Champion, I regret to inform you all.
Cheering from the crowd for that one.
Erin Robbins: See? Fair leadership.
Zach Davis: He doesn't have a choice, Erin. He just retconned the entire match!
Erin Robbins: Retconned?
Zach Davis: Nevermind. Uh.. retroactively changed it.
Seth Lerch: Steeltoe Joe retains his People's Championship, and I'm happy to announce that Eric Price will become your new Internet Champion!
Booing for that one.
Seth Lerch: The Titles will officially be handed out at Slam in a Championship Ceremony for the ages. See you then, and once again, congratulations to our winner... NATHAN VON LIEBERT!
NvL has made it to the ramp now. Seth raises his arm high in the air as we go to a promo for next month's PPV.
Zach Davis: And now, it’s time for our main event! After that hellacious Ultimate Showdown match, you’d think there would be no room for more but we still have a highly anticipated contest between three of EPPW’s top competitors all looking for the richest prize in the industry.
Erin Robbins: That’s right, the EPPW World Heavyweight Championship is on the line in this upcoming match, a triple threat no less between competitors who all have bad blood between each other! Waylon Cash and Steve Orbit no doubt hate each other after many months ago, Steve Orbit decided to be selfish and focus on himself…
Zach Davis: Telling the story accurately, it was actually Waylon Cash who turned his on his long time best friend Steve Orbit many months ago ending the great tag team of the Homegrown Players he claimed because Steve Orbit cared about himself and no one else. These two men have had hellacious contests at prior PPVs nearly destroying each other in the process.
Erin Robbins: And then of course let’s not forget our World Champion Sarah Twilight, she stuck the knife right in the back of Genesis but Steve Orbit always claimed to know better about her and in essence, he was right.
Zach Davis: Yes, after turning her back on Genesis, on her friends and fans all over the world to align herself with the most evil bastard in this company Eric Price, she simply has been on an unstoppable mean streak and has taken out anyone and everyone in her path without exception. Will tonight be any different? Let’s find out as we head into the ring with Kyle Steel!
Kyle Steel: The following contest is scheduled for one fall and it is for the EPPW World Heavyweight Championship!
Crowd cheers loudly
“White Trash Renegade” by Big B begins to play over the PA system, and the arena fills with angry booing. Waylon slowly steps out onto the entrance ramp, with Scott Savage right behind him. Waylon doesn't acknowledge his introduction. He merely continues wandering down the ramp, his bloodshot eyes glaring at the bloodthirsty fans as he passes. He takes a walk around the ring simply looking at it with surprise as he slowly steps into the ring with the crowd still booing him.
Zach Davis: And here comes Waylon Cash of the S-PAC, he clearly is a man on a mission and he wants the World Title here tonight.
Erin Robbins: Absolutely and if he could bring it to his group, that would really stick it in the craw of Bravado, not a good outcome for many really.
Zach Davis: Oh and look at this, Waylon telling Scott Savage to go back to the dressing room. I think Scott acknowledging this well.
Erin Robbins: Well Waylon Cash’s title reign last year has been oft spoken of yet not highly regarded so I would think if he wins it, he would want to win this on his own one hundred percent without any controversy.
Zach Davis: Very true.
The opening synth of "Flash Light" by Parlaiment hits the speaker system of the Izod Center. The arena goes dark until the first "YOWWW" in the song, at which point a pink strobe light begins to flash throughout the arena. Small pink lights swirl around the crowd and the entire arena and eventually converge into one big pink spotlight as "The Mack" Steve Orbit appears at the top of the aisle.
Zach Davis: And here comes Steve Orbit!
Steve takes his time, strutting down the ramp, talking to fans who mostly cheer him on! At ringside he begins the process of taking off his designer suit and hands his gold chains and his hat to a ring hand. His in-ring attire consists of black spandex shorts with "Pimpin" on the back in pink, and pink boots. He has a body that resembles a model more than a wrestler, he is perfectly chiseled and cut, but he is not huge and muscular like some wrestlers.
Zach Davis: Steve Orbit as usual, flirtatious!
Erin Robbins: Perhaps but he’s a man on a mission as well, this is his first legitimate World Title match in this company in his time here and you know he has to be looking to make a statement here.
Zach Davis: Absolutely, both Waylon Cash and Sarah Twilight have betrayed this man and he has nothing but revenge on his mind and what better revenge than winning the World Title for the first time here tonight.
He continues to flirt with the girls in the crowd as he enters the ring, showing off his body and blowing kisses. The crowd goes bananas when he hits the ring, as OR-BIT chants are heard all over the arena. He also looks over at Waylon Cash with hatred as the hatred is reflected back to him as well.
Zach Davis: Two men with quite a history here and these are only two of the three competitors in this match.
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, the EPPW World Championship displayed prominently over her shoulder. 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, taking her time to flaunt the World Championship to ENRAGED fans before she reaches the ringsteps and steps inside.
Zach Davis: And here comes the EPPW World Heavyweight Champion herself, Sarah Twilight!
Erin Robbins: Yes, look at how great she looks this evening, she is just positively radiant!
Zach Davis: She is set to put that World Title on the line tonight in this triple threat match that is truly a meeting between three competitors who absolutely hate each other all for their own reasons and all representing their own agendas!
Pyros now shoot off from the ring posts and Sarah takes to each turnbuckle, holding the EPPW World Championship skyward in one hand, almost as if for her own amusement as the crowd's boos become even LOUDER.
Kyle Steel: The following contest is a triple threat match scheduled for one fall for the EPPW World Heavyweight Championship! This match can only be won by pinfall or submission and the first pinfall or submission will determine the winner! Introducing first, from Macon, Georgia, weighing in at two-hundred thirty pounds, standing 6’ 5” tall, he is S-PAC Member, The Hellbilly, Waylon Cash.
Crowd: You suck! You suck! You suck!
Kyle Steel: Next, standing at 6’ 2” tall, weighing in at 230 lbs., from Oakland, CA, he is “The Mack” Steve Orbit!
Crowd cheers: Orbit! Orbit! Orbit!
Zach Davis: Definitely a fan favorite here tonight!
Kyle Steel: And their opponent, she is the EPPW Executive Vice President of Human Resources and CEO and the EPPW World Heavyweight Champion, standing at 5’ 8” tall, weighing in at 142lbs, from Los Angeles, CA and a part of Bravado, she is ...."The Mistress of Mischief" SARAH TWILIGHT!
Zach Davis: And the referee holding up that very lucrative and much sought after EPPW World Title as all three competitors look at it, all three rearing to go as Kyle Steel removes himself from the ring.
Erin Robbins: Yes, there are a lot of scores to be settled tonight. A lot of words have been spoken, the factions have all had their say but now the time for talking is over, it’s time for action and this match starts right now!
Zach Davis: And here we go, all three competitors circle each other as the referee rings the bell.
Both Sarah Twilight and Waylon Cash immediately eye Steve Orbit in the corner as they both slowly go to approach him, Orbit already on the defensive. However, as both Cash and Twilight approach, getting closer, Twilight takes a turn and decides to start kicking away at Cash’s knees! She continues to kick as Cash backs away from her and these kicks as she continues to kick away at his right leg! She manages to get Cash backed into the corner and Twilight continues kicking away at his legs but Cash manages to grab her and push her away nearly to the middle of the ring with this strength. Twilight approaches Cash and attempts to kick him in the legs again as Cash is slowly getting up and he grabs Twilight by the hair and pushes her away nearly to the other corner.
Erin Robbins: Whoa, what a start to this match as Twilight and Cash seemed to be going after Orbit but instead she decided to go after Cash herself weakening him!
Zach Davis: Cash backed in the corner but not for long as he manages to push Twilight out of the way!
Erin Robbins: But here comes Steve Orbit!
Orbit rushes out from his corner and immediately starts punching away at Cash in the corner, the hatred obvious between the two men. He starts punching right at Cash’s face as Cash blocks him as best he can in the corner. He punches him at least a good 5 times as he lifts him up and he pulls him from the corner and is able to get Cash over to the opposite corner.
Zach Davis: And now Orbit getting in some punches to Waylon Cash and he is able to push him over to the opposite corner! And now looks like he’s getting ready to spear him!
Erin Robbins: And here we go! But oh no, Orbit eats the ring post as his shoulder hits that after Cash slides out of the way!
As Cash slides out of the way and Steve Orbit eats a corner full of ring post with his shoulder hitting it. Cash reacts quickly and grabs Orbit and goes for the cover.
Zach Davis: And no, Orbit manages to kick out here in the early going of this matchup! With the World Title on the line, there’s no doubt the participants will put up more of a fight than that!
Erin Robbins: There’s no doubt about that. And looks like Sarah Twilight is back in this match now and she jumps right on top of Cash here and oh no, looks like she’s putting a sleeper on him!
Sarah Twilight jumps on the back of Waylon Cash to apply the sleeper hold around his neck, Cash tries to fight it off but is unable to get her off as she forces in the hold even more! Cash appears to start fading as she continues to apply pressure on Cash as Orbit is still down on the canvas! The referee proceeds to check on Cash who appears to be slowly succumbing to the sleeper hold.
Zach Davis: And that sleeper hold is locked in tight, Cash now on one knee, he appears to be fading here … the referee’s going to check on him!
Erin Robbins: But wait a minute, looks like he’s powering himself back into this! Yes, he’s slowly coming back and that sleeper is becoming weaker and Cash now … oh my, that’s gotta hurt!
Zach Davis: Cash backing up into the corner crashing Twilight right into the corner turnbuckle here!
Erin Robbins: That’s gotta hurt, Twilight comes tumbling down into the corner as Cash now recuperates a bit from that sleeper.
Zach Davis: But I don’t think he’ll have much time to enjoy that as Orbit quickly meets him and wow, a spear right into the corner.
Erin Robbins: Cash now in the corner and Twilight slips right to the outside of the ring!
As Twilight is now on the outside of the ring and Cash has been speared into the corner, Orbit pulls Cash closer into the ring and covers him! The referee is in position and counts!
Zach Davis: But no, Cash with his leg on the rope at the last second, this match continues.
Erin Robbins: And a heated contest it has been so far!
Orbit realizes Cash got his foot on the rope and gets up and pulls Cash by that foot on the roop and quickly reverses him into an ankle lock!
Zach Davis: And here we go a submission hold, ankle lock locked in from Steve Orbit to Waylon Cash!
Erin Robbins: Waylon Cash in great pain here but he’s not giving up.
Waylon Cash is in great pain here with the ankle lock tightly locked in and he inches himself closer and closer to the bottom rope.
Zach Davis: And Cash getting closer to the bottom rope here, ever closer and he’s got it!
Erin Robbins: Yes, he has it but that’s not going to do him any good here. Remember, triple threat rules means there is no disqualification and that means that he can grab that rope all he wants.
Zach Davis: You’re absolutely right but looks like Cash has something else in mind here.
Cash grabs the rope and starts leveraging himself with it and slowly turns himself and starts trying to kick Orbit away. Orbit tries to maintain the grip but Cash uses his other leg to kick Orbit in the leg weakening his hold just enough for Cash to loosen himself from the submission hold. Cash uses the rope again for leverage to try and lift himself up as his right leg is still weak from all the damage it has suffered but as Orbit approaches Cash, Cash surprises Orbit with a DDT!
Erin Robbins: DDT to Orbit! Could this be it? Cover!
Zach Davis: And Sarah Twilight is now back in the ring and breaks up the three count saving her World Title reign!
Waylon Cash quickly rolls out of the way as Sarah Twilight sees Steve Orbit down on the canvas, vulnerable! She decides to start slapping Steve Orbit right in the head!
Zach Davis: And how disrespectful is this, Sarah Twilight slapping Steve Orbit in the head and talking trash here!
Sarah Twilight: I am the World Champion! I AM THE BEST!
Erin Robbins: And Sarah Twilight asserting herself with a few more slaps for good measure, the champ reminding Orbit who runs things around here. But wait, Orbit out of nowhere, rollup!
Zach Davis: Wow, a kickout right before 3! Orbit shocked Twilight with that rollup, that’s what she gets for her arrogance!
Erin Robbins: She had a moment of surprise but the champ is still in this!
Orbit gets up as Twilight is still surprised and quickly applies a side headlock to Twilight. She tries to escape the headlock but Orbit simply clenches it even tighter and then hits her in the back with his knee. He then immediately gets up and starts slapping her in the head lightly a few times, insultingly as she did to him.
Zach Davis: And now some retribution!
Erin Robbins: How dare he disrespect the champion like this, that is no way to treat her!
Zach Davis: What goes around comes around!
Twilight feels those slaps and immediately turns around with a look of flat out rage. She backs up a bit as Cash from out of nowhere clotheslines Orbit from behind. He turns Orbit around and goes for a cover!
Zach Davis: Orbit lifts the shoulder up! This match continues, as there have been many near falls thus far.
Twilight quickly rolls out of the ring and pushes the ring announcer out of his chair and grabs a steel chair. Cash notices this and quickly runs towards the ropes and runs out and jumps rights out of the ring knocking Twilight down with a clothesline!
Crowd cheers loudly!
Erin Robbins: Whoa, what a move, Twilight had malicious intentions with that chair and Cash takes a leap from in the ring and clotheslines her down, both Twilight and Cash strewn out here in front our desk.
Zach Davis: A leap of faith and Twilight was stopped, Orbit is still in the ring though.
As Orbit gets up, he notices Cash and Twilight both down on the outside and he looks at the top turnbuckle as both slowly are getting up. He gets up to the top turnbuckle.
Erin Robbins: Now this is rare, Orbit is no high flyer but I think he’s taking a risk here.
As both competitors are slowly getting up, Orbit quickly takes a leap of faith from the top turnbuckle and hands aerial clotheslines for both competitors, knocking them down while he himself lands on his feet!
Crowd: Orbit! Orbit! Orbit!
Zach Davis: And the high risk paid off as both Twilight and Cash are now down on the outside and Orbit stands tall!
Erin Robbins: Perhaps but this match can only be won by pinfall or submission INSIDE the ring! He needs to get one of these two inside the ring to win the title for himself.
Orbit realizing he has the chance, he grabs the steel chair and that Twilight dropped and proceeds to start hitting Cash and Twilight with a chair shot each! He then throws the chair away and drags Cash, who has become like dead weight as he drags him back to the ring and pushes him in there. Orbit then slides in and covers Cash!
Zach Davis: And this has got to be it and … NO! A kickout from Waylon Cash, after that chair shot, I really thought he had him right there!
Crowd: Let’s go Orbit! Let’s go Orbit! Let’s go Orbit!
Erin Robbins: Admittedly, I thought Orbit had him there too but it seems Waylon Cash is still in this match and it continues. Orbit grabs Cash here and I think he’s setting him up, yes submission maneuver!
Zach Davis: And the Boston Carb is firmly locked in on Cash here, and with Orbit facing the ropes, there’s nowhere for Cash to leverage himself here, he’s dead center in the ring!
As the submission maneuver is being held and Cash is almost looking to tap out, Twilight quickly scrambles under the ring and finds a kendo stick! She quickly grabs it and starts beating Orbit over the head with it!
Zach Davis: But Twilight now armed with a kendo stick starts hitting Orbit, forcing him to release that submission and saving herself from losing the title! She repeatedly hits him with the kendo stick and oh my, looks like Orbit’s busted open now!
Twilight quickly gets back in the ring as Orbit is dazed from those shots from the kendo stick. She then grabs Twilight and connects with a Twilight Zone!
Erin Robbins: Oh my God, Twilight Zone on Orbit! She has it, she’s retaining the title! Cover!
Zach Davis: But Waylon Cash breaks up the 3 count once again saving the matchup! Twilight is clearly out of it now!
Erin Robbins: But wait a minute, what’s happening here? Cash lifting Twilight up … now wait, don’t do this, please don’t do this!
Zach Davis: OH MY GOD!
Erin Robbins: A powerbomb from the ring all the way down to the outside and … I think Twilight is hurt bad on the outside here, she has got to be out!
Crowd: Holy shit! Holy shit! Holy shit!
Zach Davis: I don’t know what to make of this, this is certainly a violent turn, some might say she deserved it but that’s a bit much I must admit.
Waylon Cash now sees Steve Orbit vulnerable and he decides to grab Orbit by the head and starts punching away at him with a huge smile on his face as he’s enjoying inflicting pain on Orbit! Orbit however is able to manage to stop him once and quick rollup!
Zach Davis: And Cash barely kicks out of that small package, he almost had him there!
Erin Robbins: A microsecond away from winning the World Title right there! And Cash now getting up as Orbit is up and Cash going for a clothesline here but Orbit pulls down the rope and Cash goes flying to the outside here!
As both Twilight and Cash are on the outside, Orbit slides out of the ring to the outside. Twilight is slowly stirring making her way back up. As she stands up facing away from Orbit, Orbit grabs her by surprise and hits her with a double knee backbreaker on the outside!
Zach Davis: And a double knee backbreaker here from Orbit, I’d venture to say that after the powerbomb to the outside, that’s highly reminiscent of what was termed “The Chiropractic Bitch Slap” when Cash and Orbit were a team.
Erin Robbins: Perhaps but Twilight is hurt bad here, I don’t know if she can really continue in this match!
Twilight is writhing on the outside in pain as Cash is stirring up. Orbit sees Cash getting up and as he does however, Orbit will not take a chance and he drives Cash right through the barricade for the crowd, spearing him to hell and leaving him a jumbled heap there!
Zach Davis: Whoa, wait a second, Steve Orbit just speared Waylon Cash right through the barricade leaving him a jumbled heap in the crowd there. Twilight is out and … wow, he may have his shot here.
Erin Robbins: Come on champ, get up! GET UP!
Zach Davis: Orbit goes over to Twilight and grabs her and rolls her into the ring, he slides in and cover, this has to be it!
Erin Robbins: But no, Twilight still kicked out! What does it take to put her away?! Orbit is genuinely shocked here!
Zach Davis: But Orbit is not giving up, he’s going to the top rope and yes, YES, he’s calling for it! The Oakland Splash, will it connect?! He jumps and …
Erin Robbins: He connects … oh no, come on champ!
Zach Davis: He connects with the Oakland Splash and cover to Twilight!
Zach Davis: And YES, YES, we have a new champion here tonight!
Kyle Steel: Ladies and gentlemen, your winner and NEW EPPW World Heavyweight Champion, “The Mack” STEVE ORBIT!
Zach Davis: And folks you heard it right, there is a new champion here tonight, the nightmare reign of Sarah Twilight is over and Steve Orbit is the new World Champion here tonight.
Erin Robbins: As much as it pains me, he did earn his victory and tonight he enjoys the start of his first World Title reign in EPPW!
Zach Davis: Absolutely, a hellacious matchup, a lot of matches he’s had to compete in! He’s had to endure betrayals, beatings, hellacious contests but tonight, it all culminated in his triumphant victory with the richest prize in the industry now belonging to him.
Erin Robbins: Yes indeed, tonight is a great night for Steve Orbit! Congratulations are in order! Although I have no idea how Sarah Twilight will react after being dethroned.
Zach Davis: That’s not important right now. Folks, a new champion is crowned tonight! Folks, what will the fallout of the new champion be and what will the number one contender have to say about this? Tune into Slam next week. For Ultimate Showdown, live from the Izod Center, good night everyone, see you next week at Slam!
