World Title Match: Fort Knox vs Slickie T
Meet Me In St. Louis by Judy Garland plays as Slam is being broadcasted live from the Scottrade Center in St. Louis, Missouri! Pyro blasts and fans roar and we go to the announcers.
Zach Davis: Welcome to Slam!
Shannan Lerch: Big matches tonight! In fact, Slam is headlined by a World Title match between Fort Knox and Slickie T!
Zach Davis: Indeed, Shannan! Fort Knox won a match last week, but I've heard rumors that Knox paid off WCF officials to get a shot at Slickie's World Title. Between him and the Man Made Gods, everyone is throwing around money trying to get that belt.
Shannan Lerch: Well the World Title isn't something you can just get with money, Zach, and Knox is still going to have to battle Slickie for it and win the match. Which, as we've seen, isn't exactly an easy thing to do.
Zach Davis: Indeed! Last week we learned that Evans would be getting a rematch at Timebomb for that very belt. Tonight, Evans is teaming with Jay Price to take on Creeping Death and Conviction.
Shannan Lerch: Very interesting matchup... Price certainly hates CD and Conviction, and Evans is no fan of Creeping Death, but I just don't see those two working together. I guess we'll see.
Zach Davis: Speaking of tag matches, we've got Ace Garrison and Anastasia Petrova teaming up to face Steve Thunder and Adam Young. Garrison and Thunder debuted last week with a GREAT match. Thunder was able to get the victory there, so you know Garrison is going to be out to get revenge for that.
Shannan Lerch: And Anastasia Petrova is a few short weeks away from a shot at Hector Rodriguez and the United States Title.
Zach Davis: This is the first time we're booking Ace Slaughter not as Ace Slaughter, but as Oblivion. Oblivion has completely taken over Slaughter's mind and body... he's teaming with the man formerly known as Keith, now known as El Angel Oscuro, to take on the HellRaisers. The HellRaisers are currently undefeated in WCF, by the way.
Shannan Lerch: We have a Television Title match, between Doc Henry and D-Day. D-Day is set to face Jake Keeton at Timebomb for that belt, provided he retains it until then.
Zach Davis: And in our opener we've got Mike Bowen and Bishop competing with Marisa and Kris Chambers, two newcomers, in a four way matchup. Should be a good one!
Shannan Lerch: Also tonight, we've heard that Seth Lerch is set to make some kind of special announcement. And we'll learn more about Chris Avery's quest to find out who has been supplying Tank Reaper with drugs and hookers and whatnot.
Zach Davis: I can't wait!
Seth Lerch's Announcement
The video cuts in to show a big white limo. In the corner of the screen it reads "Earlier Today". The camera pans around to show a man standing a couple of feet away from it in front of a local Taco Bell. The front door to the fast food place opens up and out walks none other than WCF owner, Seth Lerch, himself. Seth stands there and pats his stomach while sighing.
Seth Lerch: Man that hit the spot. Good old volcano tacos..
Seth walks up to the limo and stops. He waits for a few seconds and then glances over at the limo driver who just stands there. The guy just looks back at him. Seth looks at him for a few seconds and then gestures to the car door.
Seth Lerch: WELL?! Are you gonna open it?!
The limo driver shakes his head no.
Seth Lerch: Seriously?! Open the door.
Limo Driver: I don't think you should get in there.
Seth Lerch: Open the door.
Limo Driver: But sir, you really shoul--
Seth Lerch: Open the door.
Limo Driver: But there's som--
Seth Lerch: OPEN THE DAMN DOOR!!
The limo driver jumps at his outburst and shrugs. He walks over and opens the door. Seth Lerch steps in and a couple of seconds later says something from inside.
Seth Lerch: What the hell are you doing?!
Seth Lerch quickly steps back out of the limo and a couple of seconds later, a masked man steps out behind him, grinning. He's a smaller man, but has gang tattoos on his body...MS-13 tattoos. Seth notices this.
Seth Lerch: MS-13?! What the heck is this? What were you doing in my limo?
The masked man's grin fades as he responds.
Masked Man: Stalling for time.
Seth Lerch: Time for what?
Seth Lerch's question gets answered when out of nowhere a large masked man bearing similar tattoos runs at Seth and flattens him agains the side of the limo. Two more masked men also with MS-13 tattoos come running up. The four men begin kicking and stomping all over Seth Lerch. The limo driver runs away down the street. The four MS-13 members keep stomping away at Seth. Finally the big man pulls out a chain, wraps it around his hand, grabs Seth Lerch by the hair and starts pounding away at his forehead, cutting him open. Blood begins pouring down Seth's face as the man continues to hit him.. A few seconds later, sirens can be heard getting closer. The man stops hitting Seth.
Masked Man: Hey gringo, this is a warning. Stop screwing with Hector and stay out of MS-13's business. He can be friends with whoever he wants to white boy. Got it?
Seth doesn't respond and just yells out in pain.
Masked Man: I said you got it?
The man goes to hit Seth again but he finally nods. The big man stands up and kicks him firmly in the ribs one last time as the four men go running off behind Taco Bell. A few seconds later as the police pull up, several motorcycles can be heard coming to life in the distance. The policemen come up to check on Seth. The video fades to black as Seth begins vomiting up his lunch on the sidewalk, mixing it in with his blood.
Shannan Lerch: ...oh my God! My brother... what the hell!
Zach Davis: I have no idea what Seth's announcement was going to be, but obviously he won't be making it tonight. He isn't even here.
Shannan Lerch: I hope he's okay.. damn MS-13!
Mike Bowen vs Marisa vs Kris Chambers vs Bishop
From Out of Nowhere by Faith No More hits. Mike Bowen steps out from the back and heads to the ring.
Zach Davis: Here is Mike Bowen, the unluckiest man in WCF.
Rock You You Like Hurricane intro Strobe Light going back and fourth Smoke Machine Going Off as The Song start Alexis Apears on the ramp hands going up leg kick back as her hand gose up in the air fire work go off as walk down dancing down to the ring.

Shannan Lerch: New girl! Marisa. Hopefully she's better than that damn Anastasia Petrova.
The lights in the arena fade to black with "Shoots and Ladders" By : KoRn blasted out the sound system. Green and black fog mixed with red fog rise up from the ground as Kris Chambers makes his way out of the back, wearing all black, including a long black trengecoat, down the ramp heading into the ring. As Kris gets into the ring, everything turns to normal.
Zach Davis: Here is Kris Chambers, one of the most promising men in WCF today.
"Run This Town" by Jay Z plays and out from the back walks Bishop. Bishop throws his arms up as he looks around at the crowd. He walks down the ramp and climbs into the ring.
Shannan Lerch: And a WCF legend.. Bishop!
The bell is about to ring.. until Totalimmortal by AFI hits.
Zach Davis: Here comes Brad Kane. What does he have to say?
Brad Kane steps out, mic in hand.
Brad Kane: Hey. After what we just saw with Seth Lerch, I really have to say.. HA-HA!
The crowd laughs as well.
Shannan Lerch: HEY! Not cool.
Brad Kane: Also, I've decided to turn this match into an over the top battle royal. Just for shits and giggles. Have fun everybody!
Brad Kane leaves as fast as he entered.
Zach Davis: What the hell?
Mike Bowen runs at Marisa, but Marisa sees him coming and hits a Back Bodydrop, sending him flying over the top and to the outside!
Shannan Lerch: Bowen's unlucky streak continues. Poor guy.
Bishop tries Marisa next. He goes for a Clothesline, she ducks it and hits a Bitch Kick, which sends Bishop flying over the top rope and to the outside!
Zach Davis: Oh my God, what the hell!? Marisa just eliminated two men right away! Wow!
Chambers looks at Marisa, and she tells him to bring it on. He shrugs and jumps out of the ring on his own.
Shannan Lerch: Kris Chambers didn't even want a piece of her!
Zach Davis: I've heard he has business to attend to outside of WCF, he may not be back for a while. Anyway, Marisa wins!
The bell rings. Marisa smiles widely as the ref raises her hand.
Shannan Lerch: What a debut!
Marisa celebrates in the ring as we go to commercial.
Doc Henry Segment
Dr. Feelgood hits the speakers and Doc, and Mary emerge on the stage. Looking around, he raises a fist in the air, then leads the way to the ring. Climbing up the steps, he holds the Ropes for Mary, who slinks lithely through. Grabbing a mic from one of the stagehands, he stands in the ring...
Doc Henry: Hello St. Louis!
As the crowd pops in return, Doc smiles, his arm around Mary.
Doc Henry: Tonight a new era begins. The TV Title will be mine.
Smiling out at the crowd, he continues..
Doc Henry: That being said, there is one matter I'd like to address.
Doc takes his sunglasses off, and places them in the collar of his T-shirt.
Doc Henry: At Ten, the New Confederacy lost the Tag Titles. Now we would still be the champs had Johnny not gone all noble. Seems something in his wiring was shot. That not withstanding, I forged on, beating the crap out of those teams in the tournament, then moving on. At Til Death, I took Price to his limit, then beat Adam Young last week. After laying him out in the ring, what do I see, Johnny Reb standing at the top of the ramp. Well, Johnny, I wanna know where the hell you been.
Turning, Doc walks to the ropes facing the back, and leans on them.
Doc Henry: Haul your ass out here now... Brother... I demand to know where you were!!
There is a momentary silence before “Bad Company” hits the speakers. Doc Henry watches the stage expectantly. The audience waits as the seconds tick by, until, at last, Johnny Reb emerges from the back to a loud pop from the crowd. Reb stalks toward the ring, accompanied by a wizened Hispanic man.
Shannan Lerch: Maybe now we’ll get some answers from the Inveterate Confederate.
Zach Davis: Yeah, like where he’s been for the last month...and why he left in the first place...
Reb hops up onto the ring apron and holds the ropes open for the aging Mexican, then accepts a microphone from the ring attendant. He gazes out over the audience for a moment more, as the music fades away and the cheers die down. He lifts the microphone to his lips and arches an eyebrow.
Johnny Reb: FINALLY.... Johnny Reb has come BACK....to the WCF!!!
This statement elicits an appreciative pop from the audience. Doc and Mary exchange glances. Reb turns his attention to Doc with a roguish grin.
Doc Henry: It's about time you showed up. I know Evans messed with your head, but damn, bro... You really hung me out to dry...
Still grinning, Johnny shakes his head slowly.
Johnny Reb: Looks like you been doin’ all right for y’self. Got ya a TV Title shot tonight, ya beat Adam Young last week. Hell, son... you’re on a roll!
Henry eyes Reb, not looking overly amused.
Doc Henry: Yeah, no thanks to you... I hope you dug your head outta your arse... We have a rematch left for the titles, and I think you’re familiar with the current holders, cause I sure can't carry you over them. I need you at your best.
Reb starts to wave one hand dismissively at the mention of the current tag team champs, but stops at the rest of Henry’s statement.
Johnny Reb: Now wait just a damn minute, there, Doc. What’s this about you... carryin’ me...?
With a derisive chuckle, Doc glances toward the audience, then looks back at Johnny.
Doc Henry: Let’s face it, Reb... since you lost the World Title, you ain’t been the same. Somethin’s been...off. You completely stalled out, and had I not been there – like a good friend is supposed to – who knows where you’d be now? Hell, that’s the whole damn reason we lost them Tag Titles in the first place.
Reb scowls at that, and opens his mouth to argue. A glance at the Mexican still standing beside him changes his mind.
Johnny Reb: Y’know, Doc... opinions are like assholes: everybody’s got one, an’ most of ‘em stink. But you’re entitled to yours. Now, I believe I owe you – an’ all these nice folks here tonight – an explanation....
He pauses to gather his thoughts. Doc and Mary look at him expectantly.
Johnny Reb: I been through the desert...
Shannan Lerch: On a horse with no name? It felt good to be out of the rain?
Zach Davis: What?
Shannan Lerch: Nevermind.
Johnny Reb: ...I walked in the wilderness. Alone an’ unaided, I faced the things that were botherin’ me. Now I’m back...an’ better’n ever.
Henry looks mildly puzzled at this elucidation, having expected something a little more direct. After a few seconds, he realizes that nothing else is forthcoming.
Doc Henry: Good. I’m glad you found whatever the hell it was you went lookin’ for. Now, tonight... I’m gonna take that TV Title off D-Day’s waist. After that... you an’ me are goin’ for them tag titles again. But I ain’t gonna carry you no more, an’ I ain’t gonna put up with you flakin’ out again. Think you can handle that?
Reb smirks at the challenge in Henry’s tone, hesitating for a moment before he replies.
Johnny Reb: What you gotta remember, Doc, is that I am a little more... accustomed than you are to havin’ gold. I was getting title shots when you were still on the undercard. My star is still risin’, Doc. I ain’t done...not by a longshot. We’ll go after them tag titles, all right... an’ when the dust settles, we’ll see who was carryin’ whom. But for now... let’s let bygones be bygones...
Johnny lowers the microphone and extends his right hand to Doc. Henry looks at him for a minute before grasping it firmly. The crowd pops; both men smile broadly.
Zach Davis: I think it’s official, folks! The New Confederacy has returned!
Johnny Reb: Now Doc, I'm gonna let you have your spotlight, you beat D-Day and you win the Television Title tonight!
With that, Reb exits the ring and heads to the back. Henry looks towards the entryway, awaiting his opponent.
Doc Henry vs D-Day
Give Me The Meltdown by Rob Thomas plays in the speakers. The lights are dim.The lights flash on to D-Day walking out to the top of the ramp with his belt and falls on his knees and throws his arms in the air, as soon as he throws them in the air fire works go off and surround him. The screen shows all of D-Day moments of his dead and forgotten special move. As also the screen shows a ring then the words in white and in cursive, the words D-Day.

Shannan Lerch: He's a Champion for a reason! He knows the ins and outs of that ring!
Doc slides into the ring but rolls back out when Day comes near. Day is confused.

Shannan Lerch: Confederate Rocket!
Doc pins D-Day!
Zach Davis: Doc has done it!
Shannan Lerch: WOW! I don't believe it!
The bell sounds! Doc Henry stands up and the ref raises his arm high in the air... but Jake Keeton arrives out of nowhere.
Zach Davis: Where'd Keeton come from?
Keeton grabs the Television Title from ringside and slides in the ring. He looks at Henry and shoves the belt into his chest, telling Henry to enjoy it while he can.
Shannan Lerch: Well, Keeton still has his shot at the Television Title at Timebomb.. Guess he'll be facing Doc, not D-Day.
Keeton leaves the ring and heads to the back while Henry celebrates.
Oblivion/El Angel Oscuro vs The HellRaisers
The lights go out, in the arena. White strobe lights begin to flash, in the arena...
In the name of God by Slayer begins to play. Smoke fills the entrance stage and ramp. The crowd begins to cheer and boo. But, the crowd, near the entrance way stand up and rush the security railings.
I want to
To my hate
To my scorn
So eager for my lies
Oblivion starts to walk through the smoke. There is a mixture of boos and cheers. the Society follow behind. Mini Ace and Gerard begin to skip around and slam dance. They begin to thrash around. Melissa continues to skip, but with a scowl, as she chews her gum. Abril is holding onto Oblivion's right arm. Walking behind them is, The Dark Angel. Once they got to ringside, Mini Ace and Gerard slide into the ring. They run all over the ring.
For my lies... Lies
Lies in the name of God
I take you
I play you
I scar your
I fill your emptiness

With Oblivion in the center, of the ring, Abril on his right side. Mini Ace and Gerard are standing in front of them. The Dark Angel is standing on Oblivion's left side. Melissa is still skipping around.
With my lies... Lies
Lies in the name of God
In this world of shit I exist
Perfect world conforms I resist
Disconnect the nerves from the spine
Desecrate the walls of the mind
Through these eyes no love is alive
Through these eyes unrest never dies
Through these lies compassion is lost
Through these lies await the Ungod
Antichrist is the name of God
Zach Davis: Here is Oblivion aka Ace Slaughter and his Society. This is El Angel Oscuro's debut match.
Lords of Destruction by Black Label Society blasts thru the arena. No special lights, no pyro. Both men walk slowly to the ring, step over the top rope and are ready for the match.
Shannan Lerch: A no frills entrance for the HellRaisers.. they aren't a complicated team, they're just straight up ass kickers.
El Angel Oscuro starts the match, as does Jason Hodge. They're about to tie up until there is a commotion at ringside...
Zach Davis: FORT KNOX!?
Fort Knox has just attacked Melissa! He hits her with the Knox Out on the outside!
Shannan Lerch: What the hell is he doing here!? This had nothing to do with him!
Oblivion is furious. He chases after Knox, who quickly jumps through the crowd and runs through them.
Zach Davis: Fort Knox sure doesn't want to let Oblivion get his hands on him before his big World Title match later tonight!
El Angel Oscuro chases after Oblivion, and the entire Society follows him. This leaves the HellRaisers in the ring, pissed off.
Shannan Lerch: The HellRaisers didn't even get to fight!
They grumble amongst themselves and exit the ring, heading to the back.
Zach Davis: I've received word from Brad Kane that this match has been thrown out and we'll have a rematch next week!
Ace Garrison/Anastasia Petrova vs Steve Thunder/Adam Young
"Control" by Puddle of Mudd hits the speaker system. The speaker brushes aside and Ace Garrison appears onto the stage. He stands there for a moment and looks amongst the fans. He smirks before making his way down the ramp. Ace walks up the ring steps, wipes his feet on the mat, and enters through the middle rope. He quickly walks towards the farthest corner and climbs up it. Once again, he looks amongst the crowd before smirking and jumping down.
Zach Davis: Here is Ace Garrison. Debuted against Steve Thunder last week, didn't go the way he wanted it to, but he has a second chance tonight.
Na Rasputye by Kipelov plays and the lights turn red as Anastasia Petrova prances about the stage. She goes to the ring and says hi to the fans and blows them kisses while shaking her booty!
Shannan Lerch: And here is Anastasia Petrova! Former Television Champion, she has a shot at the US Title at Timebomb.
"Down with the Sickness" by Disturbed hits, and out comes Steve Thunder! He heads to the ring.
Zach Davis: Steve Thunder, he WAS succesful in his debut last week, defeating Ace Garrison. It really was a a great match.
"The Final Countdown" by Europe starts playing as smoke fills the entrance way as the jumbotron shows a video package. Out steps Adam Young in a long black leather trench coat with a Texas Flag on the back. The fans erupt chanting BTJ as he starts towards the ring. He stops halfway and throws his arms out in a Raven pose as red, white and blue pyro goes off behind him. He once again starts towards the ring alone with his trademark icey glare. He climbs up onto the ring apron and slides in under the top rope. He climbs up onto the second turnbuckle and the fans roar with chants of BTJ again. Adam drops down and slings his coat off ready for battle.
Shannan Lerch: Adam Young.. former two time Tag Team Champion. Somehow the fans are on his side now.. guess his BTJ antics turned out to be entertaining!
Zach Davis: Looks like Petrova and Young are gonna start the match.. wait? What's this?
The lights dim, a hush fills the arena and a mixed reaction of mostly cheers billows from the crowd as "Still Unbroken" by Lynyrd Skynyrd hits the PA. Jake Keeton slowly emerges through the curtains with his full attention focused on the competitors in the ring. He walks down the ramp barely acknowledging the fans and stands at the edge of the ramp, watching.
Shannan Lerch: I guess Jake Keeton is scouting some possible competition? I don't really know what he's doing here!
Regardless, the match has begun. Young hits Petrova with a Standing Dropkick. Petrova staggers back and Young throws her to the ropes before hitting a Drop Toehold. He then puts her into a Boston Crab.
Zach Davis: Adam Young is quite the submission specialist.. I wouldn't want to be Petrova right now!
But Petrova is eventually able to reach the ropes, and the ref forces Young to break the hold. Young picks Petrova up but as he does she hits him with a low blow!
Shannan Lerch: She's lucky the ref didn't see that!
Young stumbles away before turning back to Petrova but she hits him with the Rasputin!
Zach Davis: Out of nowhere!
Both competitors lay on the mat for several seconds. Jake Keeton, outside the ring, is still watching. Both Young and Petrova crawl to their respective corners... and tag in Garrison and Thunder!
Shannan Lerch: Here they come!
The crowd pops as both men enter the ring, and Keeton seems to be paying even closer attention now. Garrison and Thunder trade blows in the middle of the ring, each man hitting the other with rights and lefts. Garrison gets the advantage, throwing Thunder to the ropes and then snapping off a Superkick!
Zach Davis: Wow!
Garrison quickly pins Thunder, hooking the leg!
No! Thunder kicks out.
Shannan Lerch: I think Ace Garrison may feel like he has something to prove here, he's gotta be super motivated tonight.
Garrison picks Thunder up and takes him back down with a Snapmare before kicking him stiffly in the spine. The crowd oooh's. Garrison then stomps on Thunder repeatedly. He picks him up again, but Thunder knows he needs to regain control. Thunder shoves Garrison away. Garrison runs at him but Thunder catches him and lifts him up for a huge Death Valley Driver!
Zach Davis: Wow! Great counter!
Both men lay on the mat for several seconds, and once Thunder catches his breath he throws his arm over Garrison.
Garrison kicks out.
Shannan Lerch: Not quite!
Garrison crawls towards Petrova to tag her in, but Thunder grabs him before he can. Thunder picks him up and goes for a DDT, but Garrison reveres it into a Northern Lights Suplex Bridge Pin!
NO! Thunder gets out of it! Both men work to their feet and Garrison goes for a Clothesline but Thunder ducks it and executes a Release German Suplex!
Zach Davis: Lots of big impact moves from these two! Damn!
Thunder tags Young back into the match. Young gets in and climbs to the top..
Shannan Lerch: He's going for the Jerkasault! This could end it!
Young flies off the top but Garrison rolls away in the nick of time! Both men get to their feet and Garrison hits Young with an Ace Crusher!
Zach Davis: ACE HIGH! THIS IS IT!
Garrison falls on top of Young!
NO! Thunder dives into the ring and breaks it up!
Shannan Lerch: That WOULD have been it, anyway, Zach! But not quite!
Thunder quickly exits the ring. Garrison works his way up, turns and decks Thunder, sending him flying off the apron! By now Young is back up as well and Garrison locks him in the Final Clutch!
Zach Davis: Can Adam Young get out of this!?
Luckily for Young, Garrison's positioning wasn't perfect and Young is able to grab onto the ropes after a second or two! Jake Keeton is still outside the ring, watching with much interest. Garrison picks Young up and brings him to the center of the ring. He's going to go for the Final Clutch again, but Young elbows him a few times and breaks away. Young then dives and tags Thunder back in. Petrova yells for a tag, but Garrison refuses.
Shannan Lerch: What? Garrison won't take her in?
Zach Davis: He wants the ring to himself!
Shannan Lerch: Smart move, knowing Petrova, but still..
Garrison and Thunder meet in the middle of the ring and Thunder kicks him stiff in the gut before hitting a Swinging DDT!
Zach Davis: Wonder if Garrison regrets not tagging Petrova in now?
Thunder then runs to the ropes and executes the Rolling Thunder! The crowd is on their feet as he pins Garrison!
Shannan Lerch: Garrison kicks out once more!
Thunder picks Garrison up but he shoves him away and quickly tags Petrova back in, knowing it was his only chance.
Zach Davis: Good call, looks like he managed to put his ego aside.. this time.
Shannan Lerch: Here comes the former TV Champ!
Petrova runs at Thunder but he hits her with the Climate Control out of nowhere!
Zach Davis: WOW! What the hell!?
Shannan Lerch: Haha! Sucks for her!
Thunder pins Anastasia!
NO! She manages to kick out! The crowd pops.
Zach Davis: That was DAMN close!
Thunder picks Anastasia up but she Headbutts him, causing him to stumble back. She runs at him but he sidesteps and hits the Static Shock!
Shannan Lerch: This is it!
Thunder pins Petrova!
Young has pulled Garrison off the apron!
Zach Davis: Steve Thunder has just pinned the number one contender for the United States Title!
Keeton nods his head and walks to the back, satisfied with what he's seen. The ref raises Thunder's hand high in the air. Petrova is just starting to get up and Garrison is berating her, asking her what the hell happened.
Shannan Lerch: Garrison sure isn't happy.
Zach Davis: I think he's saying that if he'd been in there they wouldn't have lost the match, he blames it all on her!
Garrison leaves, angrily. Suddenly Hector runs out from the back, slides in and walks up to Anastasia Petrova.
Shannan Lerch: Now what is THAT sone of a bitch doing here?!
She turns around and jumps when she sees the US champion in her face. Before she can react, he grabs her and hits her with a Respecto in the center of the ring!
Zach Davis: NO!
Hector stands above her, and unstraps his US title, and then holds it above her looking down at her. Outside the ring JJ is standing at ringside. Steve Thunder starts walking away backwards watching Hector as he goes towards the ramp. Steve turns around and accidentally runs into JJ. JJ gets pissed off and slaps him. Hector turns as he hears the commotion. JJ goes to slap him again but Steve grabs her arm and shakes his head no.
Zach Davis: What the hell is going on here!?
Hector slides out of the ring opposite them and grabs a chair. He walks around the ring. Steve turns around into a vicious chair shot from Hector. Hector looks down with a sadistic grin at Thunder as he rolls around on the mat. Hector pulls back and swings again, hitting Steve in the side. Steve Thunder yells out in pain. Hector tosses the chair down and walks back up the ramp with JJ, pulling on her as she yells at Steve Thunder.
Creeping Death/Conviction vs Jay Price/Chad Evans
Zach Davis: Up next we have ourselves a tag team match that should be rather.....entertaining.
Shannan Lerch: That's one way of putting it. Everybody in this match seems to have a grudge against somebody in the match. You've got Chad Evans who has never been a Creeping Death fan. Then you have Jay Price who wants to rip off Creeping Death's head for his behind the back attacks in recent weeks.
Zach Davis: Of course on the other side of the ring you have Creeping Death and Conviction who both seem hell bent on taking out Jay Price tonight. Honestly I think the only people that can stand each other are Conviction and Creeping Death, and lucky for them, they are a team.
Shannan Lerch: You think Price and Evans don't like each other?
Zach Davis: I'm not sure about Evans, but as we've all seen recently, Jay Price doesn't like anyone not named Jay Price.
Shannan Lerch: Well I guess we're just going to have to see how all of this plays out. Let's send it in the ring to Kyle Steel.
Kyle Steel: The following is a tag team match and it is scheduled for one fall.
The arena goes dark as red lights move throughout the arena as the Ruff Ryders Anthem by DMX hits. Conviction walks out and stands on the stage looking over the crowd. He raises his hands as red fireworks explode along the stage.
Kyle Steel: Introducing first from Philadelphia Pennsylvania, weighing in at two hundred and sixty pounds...Conviction.
The lights go on as he makes his way to the ring.
Kyle Steel: And introducing his tag team partner...
The lights in the arena go out as the crowd begins booing. "Home" by Three Days Grace blasts over the speakers. Blue and white lights begin circling the arena. When the lyrics begin, 24 seconds into the song, blue lights hit the stage, and Creeping Death walks out from the backstage area.
Kyle Steel: Currently residing in Minneapolis Minnesota, weighing in at two hundred and two pounds, he is one half of the WCF Tag Team Champions....Creeping Death.
He begins to walk down the ramp, headbanging and throwing up devil horns along the way. When he reaches the ring he slides in under the bottom rope and perches himself on a nearby turnbuckle as he waits for the match to begin.
Kyle Steel: And introducing their opponents...
The lights in the arena go out as the stage, ramp and ring are lit up with a red glow. The big screen is black and is flashing the words "The Future" and "Is Now" in bold red letters. 4 Words To Choke Upon by Bullet For My Valentine hits the arena's PA System as the crowd gets out of their seats with mixed reactions. The big screen switches from the wording to showing various scenes of Price's career, including his TV Title win and the victory over Logan at One.
Kyle Steel: From Philadelphia Pennsylvania, weighing in at two hundred and twenty five pounds, the WCF Hardcore Champion....Jay Price.
As the lead singer begins singing, Jay Price emerges through the curtain, his head and face covered by the hood of a black sweatshirt. He walks out onto the stage and stops as he looks around at the crowd from under his hood. He then takes off down the ramp toward the ring, not stopping to slap any hands or sign any autographs, choosing to remain 100% focused on the task at hand. When he reaches the ring steps he climbs them and steps through the ropes. He takes a hard look at the opponent in the ring and then turns to the corner, climbing up to the second rope. He takes a last look around at the crowd before flipping the hood back and revealing his trademark grinning face. He then pulls off the sweatshirt and throws it into the crowd before he hops out of the corner and leans against the ropes nonchalantly.
Kyle Steel: And introducing his tag team partner...
The arena lights suddenly go out and the crowd murmurs in anticipation. The opening riff of “Panic Switch” by Silversun Pickups hits the PA system, as a thousand points of light converge at the top of the entrance ramp. Chad Evans appears at the center of this beacon wearing his traditional wrestling attire and a black robe, with Bobby Cairo standing at his side. The crowd reaction to this intriguing duo is mixed yet loud, with more cheers than boos. Evans and Cairo pay no mind to the fans as they stride purposefully to the ring with focused looks on their faces, the white lights now flickering in unison with the music. The camera pans and shows a glimpse of Chad from behind; on the back of his robe the words “Chad Dogg” are emblazoned in bold red font, below them is an image of Evans in a fight stance ready to strike. Chad jumps onto the ring apron and flips forward over the top rope into the ring, while Cairo slides under the ropes. Evans hands his robe to the ringside attendant, and then he does some last minute warm-ups while discussing strategy with Cairo.
Zach Davis: And there's the bell and this match is underway. I wonder who's going to start off this match.
CD shrugs his shoulders and climbs out of the ring leaving Conviction to start for his team. On the other side of the ring Evans is telling Price to get out of the ring because he's starting things off. Price shrugs his shoulder as if to say whatever and climbs out onto the apron. Conviction and Evans begin to circle each other with Evans maintaining his distance from the bigger Conviction. Conviction eventually makes his move and attempts to tie up with Evans, but Chad smartly avoids the tie up by ducking under Convictions arms and coming out behind him. Evans goes on the offensive with a big forearm shot to the back. Conviction turns back around and Evans goes at him with a big right but Conviction blocks it and hits him with a right of his own. And then another right. Conviction then grabs hold of Evans and pulls him in.
Zach Davis: This is where Evans doesn't want to be. The difference in height may not be much, but Conviction has over fifty pounds on Evans and as you can tell that fifty pounds is not in fat.
Shannan Lerch: Checking out the guys now are we Zach?
Zach Davis: Err..umm no.
Conviction pulls Evans in and lifts him up for a suplex but Chad uses his athleticism to get loose and drop down behind him. As soon as Evans hits the ground he goes on the offensive, firing off lightning fast kick after kick to the back of Conviction's legs that eventually bring him down to one knee. Evans runs at the ropes and hits them, coming back and hitting Conviction with a springboard dropkick to the head.
Shannan Lerch: And Evans goes for the cover!
Zach Davis: And Conviction kicks out before the two count.
Evans rolls off of Conviction and looks over at Price who shrugs his shoulders and sticks out his hand for the tag. Chad complies and tags in Price.
Shannan Lerch: And in comes Jay Price who has quite a history with Conviction.
Zach Davis: You can say that again. Price tried to set Conviction on fire in the middle of the ring just a few weeks ago.
Conviction is slowly getting back to his feet as Price climbs through the ropes and enters the ring. Price grabs hold of him by the back of the head and delievers a forearm shot across the shoulders. Conviction drops back to one knee as Price slaps him across the back of the head.
Zach Davis: And there you see it. The cockiness and arrogance that makes Price so damn hated in this company.
Price pulls Conviction back up to his feet by his arm and whips him into the corner. Price backs up to about the middle of the ring and looks over at Creeping Death. He points at him and then points to Conviction in the corner.
Shannan Lerch: Looks like Price wants CD to watch this closely.
Price runs at Conviction looking for the Price Check..but Conviction drops to the mat and rolls out of the way as Price's knees crash into the top turnbuckle and he lands in a crumpled heap in the corner.
Zach Davis: Once again Price screws himself by trying to showboat.
Price is holding his left knee in obvious pain as Conviction rolls on top of him for the pin attempt.
Zach Davis: And Price gets the shoulder up but you can see that some serious damage has been done to that knee.
Conviction gets up and pulls Price to his feet before pushing him into the corner. Conviction begins to work over Price's bad leg, kicking at it with shot after shot as the referee tries to get in between the two. Conviction finally lets up only to grab Price by the arm and whip him into the opposite corner where CD is standing. Price crashes into the corner as Conviction distracts the referee, complaining of an eye injury. With the referee's back to him, CD grabs hold of Price from behind and begins choking him until he falls to the mat. CD then drops to the floor and grabs Price's injured leg, dragging it to the ring post. He holds it out and then pulls the knee directly into the steel. Chad sees this and tries to enter the ring but the referee leaves Conviction and stops Evans from entering. As Chad and the referee argue, Conviction runs over to the corner to join CD in attacking the weak limb of Price. The two finally stop and Conviction drags Price by the legs to the center of the ring and applies a boston crab.
Shannan Lerch: I hate their methods but this is smart strategy by the team of Conviction and Creeping Death. They saw an injury and they capitalized and now Price may have to submit.
Evans sees Price in the hold and he pushes past the referee, diving onto Conviction and Price to break up the hold. Conviction gets to his feet and Evans unloads with a flurry of punches and kicks that ends with a roundhouse kick to the head that drops Conviction to the mat. Evans then grabs hold of Price's arm and drags him to their side of the ring before climbing back out onto the apron and sticking his arm over the rope.
Zach Davis: Chad Evans, taking matters into his own hands.
Price looks up and sees Evans hand and he reaches up, tagging him in before rolling under the rope and onto the floor. Evans gets in the ring just as Conviction is tagging in Creeping Death.
Shannan Lerch: Here we go, Chad Evans and Creeping Death. This is one that people have been wanting to see all night.
Evans and CD run at each other, each exploding with punch after punch with neither man gaining any sort of advantage. The two eventually end up by the ropes and CD grabs hold of the top rope prompting the referee to break the two up. Evans backs away until CD lets go of the ropes and then he rushes at him. CD counters with a back body drop up and over the ropes but Chad lands on the apron. Evans then jumps up on the ropes and goes for a springboard dropkick which connects with CD's back. CD goes rolling across the ring and he quickly gets back to his feet. The two tie up again and Evans goes for a judo throw but CD blocks it and counters with an armdrag. He then hits Evans with a beautiful standing moonsault splash for the quick pin attempt.
Shannan Lerch: And Evans kicks out before the two count.
CD rolls off of Chad and gets back to his feet. Evans too gets back to his feet and both men stare each down, almost as if waiting for the other to make the next move. CD flips Chad off and tags in Conviction.
Zach Davis: Guess CD has had enough of Bobby Cairo's protege.
Conviction runs into the ring with a head full of steam. He goes for a Clothesline and Evans ducks it, and hits a Dragon Suplex!.. and then into the Dragon Sleeper!
Shannan Lerch: Way of the Dragon! It didn't look like Evans was even trying!
Creeping Death is already heading up the ramp, mouthing "fuck it" into the camera. Conviction taps nearly immediately.
Zach Davis: The team of Chad Evans and Jay Price get the win!
Price has already started following Creeping Death up the ramp, apparently still wanting a piece of him. Creeping Death flips him off too and goes through the entryway, disappearing. Price follows. Evans stands tall in the middle of the ring as Bobby Cairo raises his arm in victory.
Shannan Lerch: Chad Evans seems to be an unstoppable force, Zach. Once he hits the Way of the Dragon... there is nothing you can do. You're done.
Zach Davis: You may be right, Shannan. You just may be right.
Chris Avery Segment
Kevin Rudolf's Let It Rock blasts through the speakers and Chris Avery comes out with no fireworks, no hip hop moves, not anything. Serious. He comes out wearing jeans and a t-shirt and walks right down the ramp and rolls into the ring.
Zach Davis: Chris Avery doesn't look to thrilled..
Shannan Lerch: No, he doesn't. Perhaps he's coming out here to tell us whose behind it all.
Zach Davis: If there is someone behind it. Who the hell knows now a days.
The lights darken and a single spotlight shines on Chris Avery from high above. He grabs a microphone from one of the officials and wipes his brow.
Chris Avery: I have lost my best friend. I knew it was off when Tank had a sudden change of heart and it was exaggerated to the extreme at One when he came out and slammed me through this mat. I questioned where our friendship went, I was confused about why he would think I never visited him. Considering he's my best friend and all. I visited him almost every day when he was in the hospital rehabbing, and every time I was there he was passed out. The nurses said a doctor from out of town came and worked on him at his request but when I searched into that it was just dead end roads.
Zach Davis: Wow.
Shannan Lerch: So someone was behind it?
Chris Avery: Nurses never heard anything about this, nor have they heard anything about this Doctor since. Then, I knew something was up when Tank said he was getting these drugs from someone else and told me he had a mission. That mission was to destroy me. I figured hey, I've had my enemies before so it's nothing new, but Tank said it with conviction. With the belief that if he destroyed me, he would be getting a huge bonus for it. So then I started to question everything. I actually questioned Tank right here in this ring and what you.. and I saw.. was a seven foot monster who didn't believe in hurting me.. but that it was perhaps the drugs talking. So last week.. I decided to find out what was really going on. I figured someone was behind it.. someone was.. putting Tank through this test. My suspicions were correct. Someone is behind it and Tank doesn't even know who it is.
Zach Davis: *Gasp*. What?
Shannan Lerch: Now the story is deep!
Chris Avery: Tank was given a mission to destroy me and was given a package of drugs from..
The crowd stands to their feet as a shadow figure slides into the ring with a black sweatshirt on and a steel chair.
Zach Davis: HEY! LOOK OUT!
Avery is nailed in the back of the head with the chair! Chris goes down face first! The shadow figure picks up the chair and slams it down on the back of Avery one more time!
Shannan Lerch: What the hell?!
Zach Davis: Who is that?
The lights come on and the arena is bright. The crowd is on their feet wondering who it is. The man in the ring flips his hood back on his sweatshirt. The crowd starts to boo. Torture smiles in the ring.
Zach Davis: GOD DAMN IT! GOD DAMN HIM!
Shannan Lerch: HE'S A REAL SON OF A BITCH!
Zach Davis: GOD... DAMN.. TORTURE!
Torture bends down and picks up the microphone slowly..
Torture: It was me.
The crowd boos even more. Trash begins to be thrown at Torture. He doesn't flinch. His cocky sadistic smirk still on his face. Torture drops the microphone and picks up the chair again. He kicks Avery over to his back. Torture puts the chair in Avery's throat and begins to choke him out. Medical personnel run down the ramp and slide in and get Torture off of Avery.
Zach Davis: DAMN IT!! GET HIM OUTTA HERE!
Shannan Lerch: I hope Torture meets his hero in Hell! I hope he meets.. his hero.. in Hell!
Torture slides out of the ring and walks up the ramp as medical personnel assist to Chris Avery. The fans boo as we just dramatically cut to a commercial.
Fort Knox vs Slickie T
Zach Davis: It’s time for our main event, Shannan! “Slickie T” Allen Guiliano is set to defend his WCF World Title against the challenge...uh, yes, the challenge of Fort Knox.
Shannan Lerch: That’s a bit of an underwhelming statement, isn’t it?
Zach Davis: Well, it’s not a knock against Fort Knox. He’s a promising young talent, but I have to wonder, based on his record, how did he get this World Title match against Slickie?
Shannan Lerch: My brother has a very complex selection process for title matches, Zach. He evaluates each member of the roster, looks at their past accomplishments and their potential for future success, and ranks each wrestler accordingly.
Zach Davis: And when all else fails, he takes a bribe?
Shannan Lerch: Exactly. Wait...what? How dare you accuse my brother of such under-handed misdeeds, Zach Davis! And how dare you assail the credentials and the character of this young WCF star, Fort Knox! He would never throw his money around in such a garish and irresponsible manner!
Zach Davis: Fair enough, Shannan. Without further adieu, ladies and gentlemen, please join me in welcoming the special ring announcer for tonight’s main event, Mr. Michael Buffer! How did your brother get Michael Buffer for this match, Shannan?
Shannan Lerch: Actually, he didn’t. Fort Knox paid for it.
Michael Buffer: Tonight we are going to witness a most anticipated match for the WCF World Heavyweight Championship!
The crowd cheers.
Michael Buffer: Are you ready?!
The crowd cheers even louder.
Michael Buffer: WCF fans, are you reeeeeeaaaaddddddyyyyyyyy???!!!!!!!
The crowd cheers louder still.
Michael Buffer: For the thousands in attendance and the millions watching around the world... from the Gateway to the West, St. Louis, Missouri... ladies and gentlemen... Let’s Get Ready To Ruuuuummmmmbbbbbbbblllllleeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!
The crowd goes ape-shit bonkers.
The lights go out and gold dollar signs flash about as Birdman ft Lil Wayne - Get your shine on plays and Fort Knox comes up from a hole in the stage covered with golden fireworks. (IE like the Brood's entrance from back in the day). Fort Knox comes out wearing black shades. Knox is wearing gold chains around his neck and is wearing a gold Rolex watch and bracelet. He has a gold ring on each finger and when he holds to up to the camera they spell FORT KNOX.
Michael Buffer: Introducing first, this man is trained in the arts of high flying and technical wrestling, he weighed in at two-hundred and forty pounds this morning, hailing from Music City USA, Nashville, Tennessee, here is the challenger, FORT KNOX!!!!!!!!!
Knox then goes into the ring and poses as golden fireworks shoot off from the ring post. He then hands his gold to the ringside person and tells them not to lose his gold. He then puts on his gloves and gets ready to fight.
Zach Davis: Fort Knox looks ready, but is he truly ready for the challenge that awaits him in the form of the WCF World Champion?
Shannan Lerch: It will be a tall order for Fort Knox tonight, Zach, to say the least.
The arena fades to black as a red, white, and green spotlights begin to circle the crowd and a red glow appears on the left side of the stage, a white glow in the middle, and a green glow on the right, as “Gravesend (Lake of Fire)” by Lordz of Brooklyn begins to blast over the speakers and the three lights come together in the center of the stage where Slickie T stands with his back turned to the crowd, his arms extended to form the shape of a “T”. He watches as the screen shows a roulette wheel spinning as the pill comes to settle on the green 00 space and the camera zooms in on the pill until the screen becomes completely white and then “Slickie T the Ace of Hardcore” scrolls across the screen in black in front of a waving Italian flag. Slickie then quickly turns as the pill settles in the 00 space and red, white, and green pyros explode behind him as he slowly makes his way down the ramp, slapping hands with those who are reaching out to him.
Michael Buffer: And introducing his opponent, this man is trained in the arts of high flying and hardcore wrestling, he weighed in at two-hundred and fifteen pounds for tonight’s main event, hailing from the island of Sicily, Italy, he is the reigning WCF World Champion, here is “SLICKIE T” ALLEN GUILIANO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
As Slickie reaches the ring, he quickly climbs the ring stairs, looking out over the crowd before grabbing the top rope and vaulting over the top of it and into the middle of the ring. After glancing over the crowd with a thin smile on his face, he climbs a turnbuckle and throws his arms out once again to form a “T” before backflipping off the top turnbuckle and back into the middle of the ring as the lights come up once again.
Zach Davis: The fans in St. Louis certainly love—
Michael Buffer: The referee for this bout is Stanley Moser!
Zach Davis: Yes, thank you, Mr. Buffer. You can collect your check and leave now. As I was saying, the fans in St. Louis certainly love Slickie T.
Shannan Lerch: Slickie is an exceedingly popular World Champion, Zach. His war with Chad Evans at Till Death Do Us Part has only added to his standing as a hero in the eyes of these fans.
DING DING DING!!!
There’s the bell and the match is underway. Slickie and Knox circle the ring before locking up. Knox gains the advantage with a knee to the midsection. He sneers as he traps Slickie in a headlock. Slickie grabs Knox by the head and whips him down to the mat with force. Slickie shoots a glare at Knox while Knox complains to the referee.
Zach Davis: A bit of gamesmanship early by the challenger, but the champion quickly responds.
Shannan Lerch: Fort Knox is not going to be able to one-up Slickie T. Few people in this sport are as smooth inside of the ring as our World Champion.
After a boot to the gut, Slickie hits Knox with a crisp snap suplex. Knox rolls into the corner. Slickie charges with a running knee that finds its mark in Knox’s face.
Zach Davis: Oof! Stiff knee by the champion! What’s he doing now?
Shannan Lerch: Looks like he’s setting Knox up for a hurricanrana...and he hits it! Nicely done by the champ. Here’s the cover!
Stanley Moser: ONE...
Zach Davis: Fort Knox kicks out! Knox fancies himself a high flyer, but Slickie is arguably the finest aerial performer in this company today.
Shannan Lerch: That’s a dilemma for Knox. His biggest assets are his speed and agility, but Slickie arguably has him beat in both of those categories. Although you never know, Knox could surprise us.
Zach Davis: Slickie with an Irish whip...nope, it’s reversed by Knox. Nice dropkick by the challenger! He gets the opportunity to launch some offense now.
Knox hits Slickie with a German suplex. He doesn’t release the hold; instead he gets back to his feet and switches positions, this time planting Slickie with a Northern Lights suplex into a bridge.
Shannan Lerch: Knox drills Slickie with a beautiful pair of suplexes and now he’s going for the pin!
Stanley Moser: ONE...
Zach Davis: The champion kicks out! That was a nice move, or pair of moves, by Fort Knox, but it takes a lot to put away Slickie T.
Shannan Lerch: We saw that at Till Death Do Us Part. The Chad Dogg hit Slickie with every move that he could conjure, but he was unable to finish the champion. Although it’s worth noting that the same was also true in reverse.
Zach Davis: That’s why Guiliano and Evans will do it again in two weeks time in Dallas, Texas at Timebomb, but not if Fort Knox has his way...Knox just manhandled the champion with a huge military press slam!
Shannan Lerch: What a display of strength by the challenger, Fort Knox! He makes the cover!
Stanley Moser: ONE...
Zach Davis: Nooooo! Slickie T kicks out!
Shannan Lerch: I like the elongated no, Zach. It reminds me of Darth Vader.
Zach Davis: Thank you, Shannan. I’ve been working on it.
Shannan Lerch: Fort Knox is working on Slickie T right now with the rolling snap suplexes, three of them by my count. I guess he’s trying to get Slickie back for earlier in the match. Here’s the cover by Knox!
Stanley Moser: ONE...
Zach Davis: Slickie kicks out again, but he has to be frustrated by this young challenger, Fort Knox. Slickie was supposed to come in here, blow Knox’s doors off, and walk out of here with the World Title firmly in tow.
Shannan Lerch: I think that Slickie is feeling the pressure, Zach. Even he alluded to it in his promo this week: He has yet to successfully defend the WCF World Title since winning it at Ten. Technically he did retain it against Evans, but he was not able to win that match, Slickie wants to get that eight-hundred pound elephant off his back and I think that he’s pressing right now. He needs to calm down and get back to the aggressive mindset and indefatigable work ethic that made him a champion, THE champion in fact.
Zach Davis: As we say that Knox hits Slickie with his version of the Steiner Screwdriver—
Shannan Lerch: Which is not in fact vodka and orange juice mixed with a shot of steroids.
Zach Davis: And now Knox is climbing to the top rope. What does the challenger have in mind?
Shannan Lerch: Senton bomb! Knox hits it and he’s got Slickie’s leg hooked!
Stanley Moser: ONE...
After Slickie kicks out, Knox whips him into the corner of the ring. Knox charges in and leaps into the air for a Stinger Splash, but Slickie moves out of the way.
Zach Davis: Nobody was home that time for Fort Knox! Quick wits and fleet feet by the World Champion, and Slickie T is back into this match now!
Slickie staggers Knox into the corner with a dropkick. Slickie wraps his arm around Knox’s head and grips him in a firm headlock. Slickie charges and plants Knox in the middle of the ring with a bulldog. Slickie makes the cover and hooks the leg.
Stanley Moser: ONE...
Zach Davis: Kickout by the challenger! When Slickie T gets on a roll he’s a very hard man to stop. Slickie is positioned on the ring apron now. He’s waiting for Knox to get up...springboard dropkick by the champion!
Shannan Lerch: He’s not finished yet...Slickie hits Knox with a Fisherman’s brainbuster! Sick, sick move! The champion makes the cover!
Stanley Moser: ONE...
Zach Davis: Knox kicks out, but his equilibrium has to be shaken right now.
Shannan Lerch: We can only hope that it’s shaken not stirred, because then Knox would REALLY have some problems.
Slickie drops Knox with a Russian legsweep and then climbs to the top rope, as the fans cheer him on. Slickie connects with a beautiful four-fifty splash onto his fallen challenger. Slickie hooks the leg.
Stanley Moser: ONE...
Zach Davis: Fort Knox shows some guts now with the kickout after the great display of athleticism by Slickie T!
Shannan Lerch: This is the Slickie that we were waiting for, Zach. Knox is trying his best to hang in there, but it seems like it’s only a matter of time before the cream rises to the top.
Zach Davis: Low blow by Fort Knox! Knox spins Slickie around and drops him with a reverse DDT!
Shannan Lerch: Senior referee Stanley Moser is admonishing Knox for the low blow, but Knox didn’t have a choice. He had to do something to halt Slickie’s momentum.
Zach Davis: Well, how about outwrestling the man instead of using illegal tactics, Shannan?
Shannan Lerch: How many people in the world can outwrestle Slickie T, Zach? That’s like trying to outshred Joe Satriani: It might be possible for some advanced extraterrestrial lifeform on a distant planet, but it’s not likely to happen for any man who walks this earth.
Zach Davis: Knox is setting Slickie up in the corner now...oh my, he’s not going for—Diamond Dust! Knox hit the Diamond Dust!
Shannan Lerch: And he makes the cover! New champ! New champ!
Stanley Moser: ONE...
The fans roar as Slickie T kicks out.
Zach Davis: Slickie does it again! Who can keep this man down, and how?
Shannan Lerch: The expression on Fort Knox’s face says it all. He looks like he’s just seen a ghost!
Zach Davis: I think that Knox is at a loss right now. He doesn’t know how to put Slickie away and he’s not sure what to try next.
Knox’s eyes suddenly light up and a wicked smile comes across his face. Knox pulls Slickie to his feet and puts Slickie’s head between his legs. Knox picks Slickie up and hits a brutal powerbomb. Instead of releasing the hold Knox picks Slickie up and hits another stiff-looking powerbomb. Knox still refuses to break his grip. He picks Slickie up once again, but instead of a powerbomb Knox lifts Slickie onto his shoulders and hits a sick Death Valley Driver. The fans groan as Knox confidently crawls on top of Slickie and hooks his leg.
Stanley Moser: ONE...
Zach Davis: Oh my freaking goodness! How did Slickie kick out after that devastating series of maneuvers by Fort Knox?! Unbelievable display of fortitude by the World Champion!
Shannan Lerch: Some men just want it more, Zach. Their bodies don’t know how to quit until one day when they’re sixty and they’re strolling across the lobby at a five-star hotel in Miami with a bikini babe on each arm and all of a sudden they have a heart attack and die.
Zach Davis: I don’t think that’s likely to happen during the course of this match, Shannan, but thank you for the vivid imagery. Fort Knox is throwing a tantrum on the mat. He’s kicking and screaming like a baby on the mat after that last kickout by Slickie. This is sad.
Shannan Lerch: I think that Knox has finally snapped. He’s done everything that he can to put the champion away. This isn’t like the boxing match last night where Clottey spent the better part of the match covering up and trying to block Pacquiao’s punches. Knox is taking it to the champion and he has to be frustrated by his inability to put Slickie away. I can’t blame Foxy Knoxy for freaking out, but he has to pull himself together and remember that he’s still in control of this match.
Zach Davis: “Foxy Knoxy”?
Shannan Lerch: Yeah... what do you think; Kelly Sutton is the only woman who finds Fort Knox attractive?
Zach Davis: I have no idea. I’m just a wrestling announcer, Shannan. Knox finally looks to be composed now. He shoots off the ropes...Rolling Thunder! No! Slickie rolls out of the way!
Shannan Lerch: I think Slickie was playing possum that time, Zach. You cannot, and I’m going to repeat this, YOU CANNOT allow Slickie T that kind of time to recover.
Slickie and Knox are both up now. Knox goes for a kick, but Slickie catches his leg and drops him to the mat with a Dragon Screw. Knox quickly gets up. Slickie hits him with a boot to the midsection and drops him with a DDT.
Zach Davis: Slickie is standing in the corner now, waiting for Knox to get up. Slickie looks like he’s poised to strike.
Knox gets to his feet, turns around and walks into a super kick from Slickie T.
Shannan Lerch: And Slickie does strike with the Omerta! There’s the cover, that has to do it!
Stanley Moser: ONE...
Zach Davis: Foot on the rope! Knox got his foot on the rope!
Slickie pounds the mat in frustration.
Shannan Lerch: Slickie could taste the victory, Zach. It tasted like sweet cherries jubilee, but then it was suddenly ripped away from him.
The crowd roars as Slickie goes for the T-Bone, his version of the Unprettier. Knox manages to slip out of it. Knox grabs hold of Slickie’s arm and goes for a short-arm clothesline. Slickie ducks under the clothesline. When Knox turns around Slickie drills him with a Rolling Elbow.
Zach Davis: Roaring Elbow from out of nowhere by Slickie T!
Shannan Lerch: And he follows with a standing Shooting Star! Slickie hooks the leg!
Stanley Moser: ONE...
Zach Davis: Knox kicks out! I don’t believe it! Slickie is wasting no time; he’s going up top now. What’s he got in mind this time? It looks like Slickie is waiting for Knox to get up. Could he be going for...Ace of Spades! No, Knox moves out of the way, but Slickie lands on his feet!
Shannan Lerch: Knox hits Slickie with a leaping reverse STO! I didn’t even see Knox coming that time! How did he pull that off?!
Knox seizes the opening. He sets Slickie up for a piledriver.
Zach Davis: Could this be the Knox Out, Knox’s patented front flipping piledriver?
But no! All of a sudden, Oblivion pulls the ref out of the ring!
Shannan Lerch: What th- oh, I'm not even going to act surprised. Of course Oblivion wants revenge after Knox interfered earlier tonight!
Knox looks towards Oblivion, who has just punched the referee. Oblivion rolls into the ring and ducks a strike attempt from Knox and throws him to the ropes... Oblivion hits the Black Hole!
Zach Davis: Damn! Hit it perfectly!
Oblivion stomps on Knox for several moments before rolling out of the ring and going up through the crowd. A new referee has entered the ring.
Shannan Lerch: This World Title match is still going!
Knox staggers to his feet. He stumbles backward and bumps into Slickie. This is all the opening that Slickie needs. He sets Knox up and plants him in the middle of the ring with the T-Bone. Slickie makes the cover and hooks the leg.
Zach Davis: Slickie T wins! The WCF World Champion makes a successful title defense!
Shannan Lerch: It wasn’t easy, Zach, but Slickie proved that his resolve cannot be broken. Let us take a moment to congratulate the challenger, Fort Knox, on a tenacious effort. He proved that he’s a star in the making and he silenced the critics who questioned his worthiness of challenging for the title.
Zach Davis: If it wasn't for Oblivion, maybe things would've gone different.. Having said that, it is once again Slickie T’s time to shine!
“Gravesend (Lake of Fire)” blares over the PA system as the ref hands the WCF World Title to Slickie T.
Michael Buffer: Your winner and STILL WCF World Champion, “SLICKIE T” ALLEN GUILIANO!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Zach Davis: There is a certain irony to Fort Knox’s hand-picked announcer announcing Slickie T as the winner.
Shannan Lerch: I think that’s the least of Knox’s concerns right now, Zach.
The crowd roars its approval as the ref raises Slickie’s hand in victory, the World Title draped over Slickie’s shoulder. But Gravesend is replaced by Totalimmortal.
Zach Davis: What does Brad Kane want?
Brad Kane waltzes out onto the stage, mic in hand.
Brad Kane: Congrats, Slickie, on a succesful Title defense. Speaking of Title defenses.. you're a few short weeks away from your rematch against Chad Evans. Right now, for all I know, and for all the WCF fans know... we're going to get another no contest. Maybe you two will beat the shit out of each other and no one will be able to answer a ten count. And I don't want the World Title rematch I booked to have that ending... so I'm announcing that Slickie, in your rematch against Chad Evans.. there MUST be a winner!
The crowd cheers.
Brad Kane: What does that mean? No disqualifications, first of all. No one is going to win or lose because of a DQ. Secondly, there will be no ten count... the match MUST end via pinfall or submission. If you both get knocked out, we'll wait for someone to wake the hell up, no matter HOW long it takes. This is going to be an incredible match, and personally, I can't wait to watch. See you then, Slickie.
Totalimmortal plays again as Brad Kane leaves. Slickie seems unphased by the announcement and continues celebrating.
Zach Davis: GREAT call by Brad Kane... this takes the Chad Evans versus Slickie T match to a whole new level!
Shannan Lerch: Can't wait!
Zach Davis: See you next week fans, goodnight!
Slam fades to black.
