Kids by MGMT hits, and Slam is on the air!
Zach Davis: We're live from the Staples Center in Los Angeles! I'm Zach Davis, here with Shannan Lerch.
Chants of 'Mara' can be heard coming heavily from the crowd in attendance at the mention of Hector Rodriguez and his possible world title shot chance tonight.
Zach Davis: Yes, ladies and gentlemen watching us on TV, you are hearing this correctly. The crowd is indeed chanting Mara for Mara Salvatrucha, the gang that we are all too familiar with thanks to the former United States champion Hector Rodriguez.
Shannan Lerch: Tonight's crowd is heavily in the favor of the Latino population. For every Caucasian or African-American fan in the crowd, there are ten Latinos in the crowd cheering for MS-13 or Hector.
Zach Davis: Seth Lerch was informed of this possibility and security has been beefed up for tonight's event. Every fan in attendance was checked thoroughly for weapons. Security are also posted backstage right at the entrance in case the ones at ringside and the stage are not enough.
Shannan Lerch: Huge night tonight, Zach. In our main event, seven men compete to earn a Title shot in their division. One of these men may earn a shot at Chad Evans!
Zach Davis: We have Hector Rodriguez and Slickie T, the former Champion, representing the World Title division. We have Payne and D-Day from the TV Title division, Austin Adams from the Tag Division, Anastasia Petrova from the US Title division, and... Greenfever. From the Hardcore division.
Shannan Lerch: How Greenfever got back into WCF, I have NO idea. Something to do with Brad Kane, no doubt.
Zach Davis: Regardless, he's back, and he could earn his shot at Jay Price tonight.
Shannan Lerch: We have a tag team match featuring the New Confederacy, reunited at last!, teaming up against Jake Keeton and Ace Garrison. Keeton's Television Title is on the line; if he gets pinned, he loses the belt.
Zach Davis: Doc Henry and Johnny Reb have been teaming together longer than Keeton and Garrison, but Keeton and Garrison seem to have formed quite the alliance as of late. But on the other hand, we know Reb has what it takes to defeat Keeton, so.. who knows how this one will go!
Shannan Lerch: Not to mention, I'm sure Doc Henry wants revenge for Keeton taking the TV Title from him!
Zach Davis: Our World Champion is in action in a handicapped match against Ittrock and Kris Chambers, who is making his return here tonight. Can the World Champion handle two dudes at once?
Shannan Lerch: Umm..
Zach Davis: Not like THAT. Sheesh.
Shannan Lerch: Either way, we'll find out tonight.
Zach Davis: What do you mean "either way"? We'll find out if Chad Evans can sexually satisfy two men at once tonight, maybe?
Shannan Lerch: You will, Zach, I'm sure. Just report back to us next week on your findings. Anyway, we've got a Tag Team Titles rematch between Bishop and Priest and the Man Made Gods, Torture and Creeping Death.
Zach Davis: It kinda seems like they're steamrolling through the tag division... I'm anxious to see if anyone can actually stop them or not. I hope Bishop and Priest can.
Shannan Lerch: And in our opener, we have Fort Knox and Jay Price teaming up against Oblivion and Steve Thunder.
Zach Davis: Thunder is defending his United States Title at Explosion against Fort Knox, while Jay Price is facing Oblivion for the Hardcore Title. All part of the Trilogy Cup Tournament.
Shannan Lerch: We still don't know what exactly winning this tournament means, or what reward there'll be, but maybe we'll find out soon. Let's get to the show!
The lights in the arena shut out.
Zach Davis: Power failure?
"There's a million Jews in New York... AND I'm one of them!"
The song of Pinhead Gunpowder "Westside Highway" kicks in. The announcers, along with the audience, buzz amongst another.
Shannan Lerch: Not sure who this is..
Zach Davis: H'm.
The lights on the stage begin flickering rapidly. A figure appears. More notably... a man. He's wearing tight black pants, black shoes, and a black and white striped shirt. His jet black hair is reminiscent of 70's punk rocker Sid Vicious hair style, puffy and spiky. This mysterious person unknown to the world of WCF casually carries himself down the ramp like he was a familiar face to this crowd. Besides the flickering spotlight that follows him, everything surrounding him remains black. He lifts a can he was hiding at his side while walking, popping it open and taking a few gulps.
Shannan Lerch: You can't drink beer out here!
Zach Davis: Well.. it looks like Sparks. Half energy, half beer.
He stops just shy of the ring steps, turning back to the entrance ramp and giving the ones pulling the strings in the back a quick cut throat motion. The theme fades and the lights return. He remains by the steel steps, nursing his beer, lazily studying the buzzing audience. With a beer-free hand, he signals and instructs a nearby official to send him an microphone. The ring man obliges, chucking a microphone into his direction. He catches the microphone, takes a swig of Sparks, and quickly raises the microphone to his lips... the crowd quiets. His facial expression looks frozen and it doesn't appear if he'll say anything, then, he turns to a audience member in the crowd standing rail-side.
???: Hey man.
He holds the microphone out to the guy in the crowd he was talking to. The guy, excited to be on television and talking into a mic, screams with excitement.
Audience Member: HEEEY DUDE!
Retracting the microphone back to his mouth, he chuckles a bit, sipping his beer then continuing on.
???: What's your name mate?
Audience Member (soon known as Dave): DAVEEE!!
???: Cool. Want some beer, Dave?
Dave: Yeah? UH, YES!
He hands his beer over and Dave reaches out snatching it away like he just hooked a fish. The man in black turns away from Dave and slides under the bottom rope and into the ring. He gets to his feet, walking over to a corner and settling his back into it and propping his arms on the ropes.
???: Now that you know that guys name drinking all my booze, you should probably know my name. You should.. really. Ya' know, next week, I'll be running around this place kicking people in the mouth.. so, yeah, you'll probably be like, who's that guy tearing up all the asshole? I'll tell you who... it's Mickey fuckin' Page!
Page stomps out to the middle of the ring.
Mickey Page: Hear that? Mickey fuckin' Page! You dildos in the back hear that? Mickey fuckin' Page!
He turns his face directly into the lens of the camera man whose in the ring filming.
Mickey Page: Mickey.. fuckin'.. Page.
Zach Davis: Our censor machine in the back has to be steaming right now.
Shannan Lerch: It's a machine?
Mickey Page: Woooo!
Mickey Page drops the microphone and slinks his arms above his head. Half of the crowd buy into his style, woooing with him, while some can't really stand him too much. Pinhead Gunpowder "Westside Highway" rocks the arena and Page rolls back out of the ring and heads to the back.
Fort Knox/Jay Price Segment
Cameras catch up with Fort Knox backstage in the locker room getting himself ready for his tag team match later on. The door to the room opens up and Jay Price, already dressed in his wrestling gear with the WCF Hardcore Championship over his right shoulder, walks in. Knox and Price have a lengthy stare down before Knox finally decides to speak up.
Fort Knox: So…
Price holds his hand up, cutting off Knox mid-sentence.
Jay Price: I hope to god that you're ready for this match, because if I so much as have to pick up the slightest bit of slack because of you...
Fort Knox: Hold the fucking phone there Jay I always carry my share of the load and then some. So I suggest you back the fuck off before either one of else says something that leads to a fight. We need to be on the same page.
Jay Price: Agreed. We both have a common enemy in this match in Oblivion, and I know that you want him as badly as I do. But I need to know that you won't let your emotions cost us this match. I need to know that you are ready to go out there and get this win with me.
Fort Knox: You don't have to worry about me.
Jay Price: That's exactly what I wanted to hear.
Price turns to walk out of the door when Knox speaks up again.
Fort Knox: You used to date Shannan Lerch, right?
Jay Price: Yeah, we had a thing going on at one point.
Fort Knox: Tell me what she's like.
Jay Price: She's a bit of a stuck up prude until you get a few drinks in her. Then..well let's just say things get a lot more interesting.
Fort Knox: Really?
Jay Price: Yeah I remember this one time when…
Price remembers that the cameraman is present and looks over into the lens.
Jay Price:...lets you and me finish this conversation in private.
The feed backstage is cut as Price places his hand over the lens. Cameras cut back to a shot of Shannan Lerch and Zach Davis sitting at the announcers table.
Zach Davis: Well that was...interesting.
Shannan remains silent, although the look on her face suggests that she's about to be violently ill.
Fort Knox/Jay Price vs Oblivion/Steve Thunder
Zach Davis: Well, the big tag team match is about to.....wait, just one second. I'm being told that Hank Brown is backstage with something important.
Shannan Lerch: That's a surprise to me. Let's take it backstage to Hank Brown.
The cameraman backstage is having a hard time keeping track of all the madness. Mini Ace is running around looking under skirts and dresses. He is also kicking people in the shins if they don't give him any attention. Melissa is skipping around twirling her hair and chewing bubble gum. The camera pans from Hank Brown to Brown's left and the crowd cheers with a few scattered boos. Oblivion is standing there, with his arms crossed and staring down at Hank Brown.
Zach Davis: Oblivion is just staring down Hank Brown.
Shannan Lerch: And look...
Hank Brown slowly bows his head and gives the mic to Oblivion. Oblivion places his right hand on top of Hank Brown's head. The lights in the surrounding area grow brighter until they shatter.
Zach Davis: Holy Cow!
Zach Davis nearly falls out of his chair.
Oblivion: Hank Brown!
Shannan Lerch: Shh-h! Listen...
Zach Davis: I Am...
Shannan Lerch: Sh-h-h!
Oblivion: I see your pain. I feel your pain. Your addictions...
Zach Davis: Oh? This should be interesting.
Shannan Lerch: You know, Zach. YOU of all people should understand about addiction.
Zach Davis: Why?
Shannan Lerch: Your "special" collection of Dolls He-....
Zach Davis: Whoa!! Whoa!! What are you doing? <nervous laugh> I..er..don't have any...<cough> um...addictions.
Oblivion: I don't judge you Hank. I envy you. To be so imperfect. I don't understand the concept of a flaw. I..Oblivion..am perfect.
The crowd begins to boo...
Oblivion: Hank Brown, I can take away your addictions. I can take away all those that are holding you back. From now on, you can do anything. I just ask for one thing..
Hank Brown: What is that?
Oblivion: YOUR TOTAL DEVOTION...
Melissa walks up with an electric razor and The Dark Angel walks up with a chair. Hank Brown is asked to sit down on the chair. Hank resists but Oblivion places his right hand on Hank Brown's left shoulder and Hank sits. Melissa walks up behind Hank and begins to shave his head.
Oblivion: As the lovely Melissa is cleansing Hank Brown's soul, I don't know the meaning of the word, flaw. Look at my physique.
The camera pans from Oblivion's feet to his black mask. Some female fans squeal out with delight. Oblivion looks down at the freshly shaven Hank Brown.
Oblivion: Hallelujah! Hank Brown belongs to The Society, now!
Hank Brown touches the top of his bare head. He stands up and then drops to his knees. He then raises his hands to the ceiling.
Hank Brown: Thank you God!!! Thank you for sending Oblivion to find me! I am now found, I am no longer lost. Thank you, Oblivion! Glory be thy name!
Oblivion: Thank you, Hank Brown. Coming from you that means somewhat to me. Bu, I am perfection! That is why the WCF United States heavyweight Champion should be honored to be my partner. Tonight is a warm up Price. From now till Explosion, you will see me everywhere. I will haunt you Jay Price. I will hunt you down, Jay. That day, when you feel you're being watched... YOU WILL BE!! You're not the only one with "connections". What if Jay Price just "disappears" and is never heard from again. Glory to be!! That would be a righteous day!! No more Jay Price!! But, till that day, I will be everywhere Jay Price. And, by the way, Fort Knox...
Oblivion drops the mic and walks away.
Shannan Lerch: Oblivion has just disrespected Fort Knox!
Oblivion appears the lower right corner, of the screen...
Oblivion: Fort Knox?!?
Oblivion/Crowd: YOU... CAN... CHOKE... ON... THAT!!!!
Oblivion: Because, when the Gods strike down upon you with furious anger, you will truly know that...
Oblivion/Crowd: THE SOCIETY ARE... YOUR... GODS!!
Oblivion walks off from the camera.
The lights go out in the arena as white strobe lights begin to flash.
In the name of God by Slayer begins to play.
Shannan Lerch: Well, here comes Oblivion and his Society.
Smoke fills the entrance stage and ramp. An old 1960's style nuclear attack alarm keeps echoing through the arena. There is a mixture of cheers and boos as the crowd stands on their feet. The crowd near the entrance way rush toward the security railings. The alarm fades away.
Kyle Steel: From the darkest, deepest part of a sick man's psyche. Weighing in at almost 300 hundred pounds...
I want to
To my hate
Kyle Steel: OH-OH-BLI-V-IV-I-I-IO-ON-NN-N!
To my scorn
So eager for my lies
Oblivion starts to slowly slink through the smoke with his arms outward. Both of his index fingers are pointing outward. There is a mixture of boos and cheers. The Society follows behind Oblivion, all of them wearing black. Mini Ace begins to skip and slowly slink around before beginning to slam dance. He thrashes around. Melissa continues to skip, but with a scowl, as she chews her gum and blows out a huge bubble. Oblivion slowly walks down the aisle, occasionally spinning around. Walking behind them is The Dark Angel. Once they get to ringside Mini Ace slides into the ring and begins to run all over the place. Oblivion tilts his head to the right, popping his neck in the process, as he holds his arms outward.
For my lies... Lies
Lies in the name of God
I take you
I play you
I scar your
I fill your emptiness
Melissa and Dark Angel walks around the right side of the ring as Oblivion walks to the left. Oblivion slides under the ring ropes and walks to the center of the ring. The Dark Angel walks over to a corner of the ring. Melissa continues to skip around the ring as she approaches a corner.
Mini Ace walks up to a corner and climbs up to the bottom turnbuckle. Everyone slaps with both hands, two hard times on the turnbuckles. On the third double hand slap on the turnbuckles, pyro shoots out from the tops of the ring posts. Dark Angel, jumps down and walks over to Oblivion. Melissa continue to skip around. With Oblivion in the center of the ring, Mini Ace is standing in front of him. The Dark Angel is standing on Oblivion's left side. Melissa is still skipping around. Several hundred cameras flash throughout the arena. Oblivion strikes a muscular pose.
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
The Society leaves the ring as Oblivion waits for his tag team partner.
"Down with the Sickness" by Disturbed begins to play...
Drums to begin to roll.
Can you feel that?
Drowning deep in my sea of loathing
Broken your servant I kneel
Zach Davis: Um, where is Steve Thunder.
Oblivion throws his arms in the air.
Shannan Lerch: What is this?
Zach Davis: Oblivion is leaving the ring and walking back up the entrance ramp
(Will you give in to me?)
It seems what's left of my human side
Shannan Lerch: I wonder what's happening
Zach Davis: Steve Thunder hasn't been heard from in a week!!!
The crowd begins to cheer...
Shannan Lerch: Well, here comes Steve Thunder with Oblivion right behind him.
Thunder has the United States Championship over his right shoulder. The US champ keeps looking back at a completely irate Oblivion as he walks down the ramp.
Zach Davis: Oblivion does not look happy!
Is slowly changing in me
(Will you give in to me?)
Shannan Lerch: When Oblivion gets angry...
Looking at my own reflection
When suddenly it changes
Violently it changes (oh no)
There is no turning back now
You've woken up the demon in me
Zach Davis: People get hurt!!
Get up, come on get down with the sickness
Get up, come on get down with the sickness
Get up, come on get down with the sickness
Shannan Lerch: When people get hurt, they bleed!
Open up your hate, and let it flow into me
Get up, come on get down with the sickness
Both Oblivion and Steve Thunder enter the ring. Oblivion walks up to a nearby turnbuckle and climbs up to the second turnbuckle. He raises his arms to the crowd as Steve Thunder does the same at another corner....
The lights go out and gold dollar signs flash about as `Get your shine on' begins to blare throughout the arena. Some, of the crowd, begin to stand and bounce to the song...
We gon go old school

Kyle Steel: From Nashville, Tennessee, weighing 240 pounds..... FOR-OR-ORT KNO-O-O-OX!!!

Fort Knox comes up from a hole in the stage covered with golden fireworks. Very bright golden lights surround the hole that Cash came out from.
Zach Davis: Fort Knox is not short of confidence!
Shannan Lerch: He is pretty sure of himself.
Get your shine on
Get your shine on
Get your shine on
So nigga stop hatin'
Get your shine on
Get your shine on

Fort Knox comes out wearing black shades. Knox is wearing gold chains around his neck and is wearing a gold Rolex watch and bracelet.
Shannan Lerch: Fort Knox looks determined and ready for this match.
You know we gonna make it
Get your shine on
Get your shine on
Get your shine on
So nigga stop hatin'
He has a gold ring on each finger and when he holds to up to the camera they spell FORT KNOX.
Get your shine on
Get your shine on
Get your shine on
Zach Davis: You do have to admit, that Fort Knox does have a great ring entrance.
Shannan Lerch: Sure, but what counts is what happens inside the ring.
Zach Davis: You will have to agree Shannan that when Oblivion and Knox hook up the roof will blow off the Staples Center!!
You know we gonna make it
Shannan Lerch: There are deep rooted feelings of hatred between these two men. This rivalry has gone on far enough. Something would eventually happen when those emotions came up to the surface, and now someone's career could end.
Zach Davis: At the next Pay Per View. Oblivion faces off against Jay Price, in one of the three semi-final matches for the Trilogy Cup and it is also for the WCF Hardcore Championship and...
Shannan Lerch: Steve Thunder will be putting up his WCF United States championship against Fort Knox!! Oblivion is a former US champion
Zach Davis: As well as a former Hardcore Champion.
In one you trust, the neighborhood is us
And everything that I ride is 22s and up
And everytime that I slide, you know I'm platinum plus

So how ya love that people? Everybody on the grind
Fort Knox enters the ring and poses. Golden fireworks shoot off from the ring post.
And these projects cuts ya, ya hood rich livin lavish
Those 14s, you know we had to have it
Once upon a time it was nothing but magic
Hustling right in front of my mama, Ms. Gladys

Fast money, Cash Money, thats all I know One
Zach Davis: You do have to admit, that is pretty cool, to see
Get your shine on

Get your shine on
Knox hands his gold to the ringside person and tells them not to lose his gold.
Shannan Lerch: That's some expensive bling he's got there. The ringside attendee better keep track of that!
Fort Knox: You know not to lose this, right?! Or something bad will happen to ya, right?
The ringside personnel takes the golden jewelery ringside.
You know we gonna make it
Get your shine on
Get your shine on
Get your shine on
So nigga stop hatin'
He then puts on his gloves and gets ready to fight.
Get your shine on
Get your shine on
Get your shine on
You know we gonna make it
Music fades out...
The lights in the arena go out as the stage, ramp and ring are lit up with a red glow.
Shannan Lerch: Here comes the WCF Hardcore Champion, Jay Price!!
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 225 pounds....
As the lead singer begins singing, Jay Price emerges through the curtain, his head and face covered by the hood of a black sweatshirt.
Kyle Steel: JAY-AY-AY PRI-I-I-CE!!!
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 hopping out of the corner and turning his attention back to his opponent as his music cuts and the lights go back to normal.
Shannan Lerch: Alright, let's get this match underway.
Zach Davis: Stanley Moser is tonight's ring official.
Shannan Lerch: It looks like Oblivion will start off against Fort Knox.
There is a little excitement in the air of the Staples center.
Zach Davis: Now this is how to start this match. Let these two finally go out there and tear each other apart!!!
Shannan Lerch: Whoa, dude!! Lay off on the sugar!!!
Oblivion and Fort Knox hook up but...
The crowd begins to boo as Fort Knox tags in Jay Price. Oblivion smirks as both he and Jay Price circle the ring. They hook up and...
Zach Davis: Jay Price kicks Oblivion in the mid-section and puts him in a headlock.
Price is wrenching down hard on the head lock.
Shannan Lerch: Oblivion hits Price with a forearm to the ribs but Jay Price still has the headlock on tight.
Oblivion drops to one knee. Price smile then gloats...
Jay Price: I told you that Oblivion is...NOTHING!
Shannan Lerch: Oblivion wraps his massive arms around the waist of the Hardcore Champion.
Oblivion gets up to his feet and grabs onto Price's waist.....
Zach Davis: A beautiful belly to back suplex by Oblivion!!
Shannan Lerch: For all the weird things that Oblivion says and does you do have to admit...Oblivion can wrestle.
Zach Davis: That is actually true Shannan. Oblivion can absolutely wrestle. We saw it there with a perfectly executed belly to back suplex.
Shannan Lerch: But, hold on... What's this?
Zach Davis: Jay Price has still got the headlock fastened on the head of Oblivion.
Jay Price still wrenches on the head.
Zach Davis: Jay Price let's go of the headlock and approaches Oblivion,methodically and grabs him with a rear chin lock.
Shannan Lerch: Oblivion's feet are inches away from the ropes.
Jay Price: I told you all!
Zach Davis: What's Jay Price saying?!
Shannan Lerch: If you would shut up for a second you could hear him!
Jay Price: Oblivion ain't nothing!!! I got him!! I got him good!!!
Oblivion slowly gets up. Jay Price still has Oblivion in a rear chin lock.
Shannan Lerch: Price still has the rear chin lock on Oblivion but he's hanging off his back.
Oblivion, with Jay Price on his back and now being locked into a sleeper hold, is feeling the effect. The Dark One's knees begin to buckle.
Zach Davis: Oblivion stumbles backward and crashes hard into the corner.
Shannan Lerch: While squishing Jay Price in the process.
Jay Price slides down with his back to the turnbuckles. Oblivion begins to stomp down onto Price's face and chest.
Zach Davis: Massive kick to the Hardcore Champion's face.
Oblivion picks up Jay Price and puts him into a side headlock.
Shannan Lerch: Oblivion begins to run while still holding onto Jay Price.
Zach Davis: Bulldog! Bulldog!
Oblivion goes for the pin. The referee gets into position.
Zach Davis: Not even a one count.
Oblivion picks up Price and kicks him in the stomach. Jay Price slaps Oblivion. Oblivion hits Price with a right forearm. A left boot from Price followed by a right jab from Oblivion.
Zach Davis: Oblivion kicks Jay Price and follows it with a snap ddt!
Shannan Lerch: Jay Price didn't see that coming. And now it looks like Oblivion is going to fly.
Oblivion quickly climbs up the turnbuckles. He looks and points to the crowd. Oblivion leaps and...
Zach Davis: Price moves! Price moves!
Jay kicks at Oblivion and picks him up. Price points at something and the referee turns his head...
Crowd: Ohh! Boo!
Zach Davis: Low blow! Low Blow!
Oblivion drops to his knees as Jay Price approaches the kneeling Oblivion.
Shannan Lerch: DRAGON SLEEPER!
Jay Price is wrenching hard on the neck of Oblivion!! Steve Thunder tries to enter the ring when fort Knox comes charging. But Thunder steps aside and Fort Knox falls through the ring ropes and crashes down to the ring mats down below. Thunder comes into the ring and kicks at Jay Price.
Shannan Lerch: That kick nearly took Jay Price's head off!!
Steve Thunder grabs Oblivion and drags him to their corner.
Zach Davis: Steve Thunder tags himself in.
Thunder charges at Jay Price, who leaps into the air and goes for a tag.
Shannan Lerch: Jay Price looks surprised.
Jay Price: What the *bleep*?
Fort Knox is barely getting up, using the ring apron for his support. As Fort Knox was about to stand up....
Zach Davis: Oblivion just leaped from his corner and...
The video replay shows Oblivion as he leaps into the air and connects with a flying clothesline on Fort Knox.
Jay Price is at his corner looking for his tag team partner when Steve Thunder comes barreling through, but Price sees him and moves out of the way.
Shannan Lerch: Steve Thunder crashes hard into the ring corner.
Steve Thunder bounces off the the corner and...
Shannan Lerch: A very explosive belly to belly release suplex that causes the US Champion to bounce out of the ring.
Meanwhile, Oblivion is punching a fallen Fort Knox. Oblivion picks up Fort Knox and...
Zach Davis: Oh my God! I think Oblivion has finally done it! I cannot believe The Dark One has gone and finally done it!
Shannan Lerch: What did he just do?
Zach Davis: I think Oblivion just killed Fort Knox with a dragon suplex on the ringside mats!
Jay Price measures Steve Thunder as he charges him and kicks the ribs. Jay Price proceeds to slap the head of a crawling Steve Thunder. The United States Champion crawls to the commentary table.
Shannan Lerch: The Hardcore Champion is now just trying to humiliate the US Champion.
Oblivion has Fort Knox on his shoulders.
Zach Davis: It looks like Oblivion is going for a airplane spin.
Bu, Oblivion spins Fort Knox's leg behind him and grabs Knox's neck and back of his head, crashing Knox's face down to the ring mats.
Shannan Lerch: That devastating maneuver is called the 5150.
Zach Davis: Did you know Shannan, that 5150 is the police code for the criminally insane.
Jay Price grabs the back of the head of Steve Thunder and slams the US champions face into the ring side commentary table!
Shannan Lerch: This match could end up in a double count-out if nobody is careful.
Zach Davis: I knew this match would end up in a fight. With these 4 in the same arena, at the same time, you knew it was only a matter of time until the referee lost control.
Jay Price grabs Steve Thunder and tosses him into the ring. Oblivion tosses Fort Knox into the ring. With both men feeling like they had the holy hell beaten out of them, they raise their heads and look at each other.
Shannan Lerch: Both wrestlers noticing each other and are now desperately crawling toward the other.
Zach Davis: And both Oblivion and Jay Price are looking at their partners with disgust.
Jay Price and Oblivion rush into the ring...
Shannan Lerch: WHAT IN THE BLUE HELL?!?!
Jay Price grabs for Fort Knox while Oblivion grabs for Steve Thunder. And they both toss their partners outside of the ring....
The crowd: HOLY SH*T! HOLY SH*T! HOLY SH*T! HOLY SH*T!
Oblivion and Jay Price look at each other and begin to hit each other with everything they have.
Zach Davis: RIGHT PUNCH! LEFT KICK! RIGHT FOREARM! RIGHT KNEE TO THE STOMACH! A LEFT HAND SLAP!!!
Zach Davis: Jay Price just surprised Oblivion with a quick snap suplex.
Shannan Lerch: Jay Price has Oblivion in an scissored arm bar!
Zach Davis: I think Price has the hold on tight. I think this is it!
The referee taps Price on the shoulder.
Stanley Moser: That's it Price his foot under the rope. Release the hold now. ONE! TWO!
Zach Davis: Jay Price is not letting go of the hold!
Stanley Moser physically removed Jay Price away from Oblivion. Jay Price rolls out of the ring as does Oblivion.
Shannan Lerch: Jay Price is kneeling on the side of the ring.
Zach Davis: Oblivion is on the other side of the ring also on the outside.
Shannan Lerch: What's this!?!?
Zach Davis: Price has a chair.
Shannan Lerch: Here comes Oblivion and he too has a chair in hand!
Out from the other sid, Fort Knox stumbles around the ring corner and grabs the time keeper's chair.
Zach Davis: Here comes Steve Thunder!
With Oblivion and Jay Price in the ring with chairs in their hands, Steve Thunder charges at Fort Knox who also has a chair in hand.
The referee looks overwhelmed with the chaos going on around him.
Shannan Lerch: This match has gotten completely out of hand now.
With one big swoop Jay Price and Oblivion both swing their chairs, connecting in the process!!
Crowd: HOLY SH*T! HOLY SH*T! HOLY SH*T! HOLY SH*T!
Shannan Lerch: Both men are down! Jay Price and Oblivion just knocked each other out at the same time with simultaneous chair shots!
Zach Davis: Both men lay motionless with the chairs still in their hands
Fort Knox turns around and....
Zach Davis: Fort Knox just clobbered Steve Thunder with a nasty chair shot!
Shannan Lerch: And Thunder is bleeding badly from that chair shot!
Zach Davis: That's it!
Stanley Moser leaves the ring and walks over to Kyle Steel...
Kyle Steel: Stanley Moser has ruled this match a no-contest!
The jumbotron shows both Oblivion and Jay Price laying in the ring from the chair shots to their heads. Fort Knox is leaning over Steve Thunder with a mic in his hand....
Fort Knox: Boy! You better get ready because at Explosion...I'M TAKING YOUR US TITLE!
Knox drops the mic onto Steve Thunder.
Shannan Lerch: What is this?
Zach Davis: Oblivion is crawling to the corner.
Oblivion slowly climbs up the turnbuckles as the Hardcore Champion is not moving. Oblivion points to the cheering crowd and flies into the air....
Oblivion leaps off the top turnbuckle with a shooting star press and lands with a leg drop. The impact causes Jay Price's lower half of his body to slightly flop up. Oblivion rolls off of Jay Price and grabs for a mic!
Shannan Lerch: Let's hear what Oblivion has to say!
Oblivion: I don't care that there wasn't a winner tonight! Jay Price, come Explosion your WCF Hardcore Championship is coming back home to me.... YOUR GOD!!= AND JAY PRICE AND FORT KNOX YOU CAN....
Oblivion/Crowd: CHOKE ON THAT!!
Oblivion drops the mic and walks over to a corner and slowly climbs up the turnbuckles. Oblivion slowly raises up his arms to the half cheering crowd as the cameras pan over to the announce table.
Zach Davis: Strong words from Oblivion to Jay Price, his opponent at Explosion. And I have to say, if Oblivion can hit a big move like that on Price in two weeks...we may see a new WCF Hardcore Champion.
Chad Evans Interview
The camera pans backstage where Hank Brown is standing in front of a WCF backdrop, holding a microphone in hand. Hank’s trademark cheesy smile is plastered on his face. He straightens out the cheap tie on his cheap suit before beginning to speak.
Hank Brown: WCF fans, at this time I am joined by none other than reigning WCF World Champion Chad Evans and his manager former WCF World and Television Champion Bobby Cairo!
The camera zooms out revealing that Evans and Cairo are standing next to Hank. Chad is wearing his warm-up robe, wrestling trunks and boots. His bleached blond hair is spiked up and ready for action. Bobby is wearing a finely-tailored American suit. His coal black hair is slicked back like Pat Riley during the Lakers “Showtime” years. Neither man looks very happy to be there.
Chad Evans: It’s a pleasure to be here as always, Hank.
Hank Brown: Good, good, I’m glad that you’re in good spirits! You’re facing two opponents in a handicapped match tonight, Chad, though neither man has much experience in WCF. Ittrock is making his debut in this match and Kris Chambers only has one previous WCF bout under his belt, a battle royal that he participated in a few weeks ago here on this program. Tell me how do you feel about your match tonight?
Chad Evans: I am not very happy about being booked into this match. I have no problem with being booked in a handicapped match. In fact I think it’s a fine concept. I’ve clearly established that no one man or woman can defeat me inside of the squared circle. Why not send two men to do the job that one man cannot? My objection to this match is that I’m being booked against two opponents who have zero combined victories in their respective WCF careers. Let me ask you a question, Hank: Does that sound like it’s an adequate test of the World Champion’s abilities?
Hank Brown: It does seem lop-sided on paper, Chad, but we haven’t really seen what either of your opponents is capable of. They have the advantage of being unknown. You on the other hand, you’re everywhere. You’re the most visible wrestler in this company right now. I’m sure that Ittrock and Chambers have been scouting you for the last week, maybe longer, in preparation for this bout.
Chad Evans: That’s all very true, Hank, but if these guys were any good don’t you think the world would know about them? Take this guy Ittrock for example, he’s from Miami but he spent six years wrestling in Holland. What the hell is that all about? Who goes to Holland to wrestle? People go to Holland because marijuana and prostitution are legal there, not because the wrestling is any good. As far as Chambers is concerned…the guy is a jailbird.
Hank Brown: Now Chad, that’s not fair. Kris spent seven years in prison because he killed the man who murdered his girlfriend. That hardly makes him a bad person. He did what most of us would have done.
Chad Evans: That’s all well and good, Hank. I’m a vigilante. I know what street justice is all about. But you said it yourself, Hank. Chambers spent seven years in prison. I don’t care who you are, that type of experience changes a person. It warps the mind, turns even the most noble of men into primitive beasts. I’ve defeated ruffians like Chambers on countless occasions, both in and out of the ring, and tonight will be no different. Hell if Chambers pins me tonight, I’ll wrestle in a dress for the next year.
Hank Brown: Bold words, Chad. You’re not showing much respect for Mr. Chambers’ wrestling ability.
Chad Evans: I cannot show respect for Mr. Chambers’ wrestling ability because he has no wrestling ability. Besides he hasn’t shown me any respect. He diminished my World Title victory over Slickie T and he even bashed my rap performance on last week’s Slam. The crowd loved my performance and I know that you did too, Hank.
Hank Brown: Uh, sure. I thought it ranged from passable to adequate.
Chad Evans: Thank you! Perhaps you should tell that to Mr. Chambers. Look at me, Hank. Look at this body.
Chad opens his robe, exposing his lean physique and the WCF World Title that is strapped around his waist.
Chad Evans: I am a finely tuned athlete! Look at this World Title belt. I am the WCF World Champion and Kris Chambers is talking about my musical ability? I was having fun last week, man. I was doing that as a joke because I knew the fans would enjoy it. I could fart the National Anthem through a kazoo and the WCF fans would cheer for me and chant my name. I am the biggest star in professional wrestling right now. I am bigger than Torture, bigger than Slickie T, bigger than anyone else in the WCF locker room. The fans are literally drinking from my cock. Kris Chambers wouldn’t know anything about that. He’s not loved. He has to suffer to belong. He has no cock.
Hank Brown: Alright, let’s watch the salty language there, champ.
Chad Evans: What? Are we on TV or something?
Hank Brown: Yes, we’re broadcasting live to millions of viewers across the world.
Chad Evans: Oh that’s right. Anyway I’ve got some advice for you, Mr. Chambers, and your tag team partner. You would be well advised not to plan my funeral before the body dies. What do I mean by that? I mean work together as a team!
Chad slaps his hands together, frightening Hank with the sudden loud noise. Bobby remains stoic as always.
Chad Evans: If you are divided then you will not have so much as a snowball’s chance in hell against me tonight. Think about this: I’ve got Bobby Cairo in my corner as my reinforcement. Do you think he won’t insert himself in this match at a moment’s notice? This could very well become a tag team match. We could see the Leaders of the Free World versus Jailbird and Eurotrash, live tonight!
Hank Brown: Wait just a minute…surely you cannot be serious!
Chad Evans: Maybe I am serious and maybe I’m not, but don’t call me Shirley. Chambers, if you were cattle I would slaughter you as a means of gaining sustenance. However you are human and as such I shall spare your life. That is the only professional courtesy that I will show you tonight. Beyond that you are on your own. Tell me, did you once believe that you had a chance of defeating me, Chambers? Do you now realize that you were sorely mistaken? Of course you do. Now tuck your tale between your legs and scamper away before I get mad acha. Right now I have bigger fish to fry.
Hank Brown: I can only presume that you are referring to the battle royal that will take place in tonight’s main event, where six men and one woman will compete for the right to face the champion of their respective division?
Chad Evans: Ding! Ding! Ding! Score one for the Hankster!
Hank smiles excitedly until Chad nudges him in the ballsack with his knee. Hank does not appear to enjoy that.
Chad Evans: It seems to me that title belts get passed around in this company like collection plates at church on Sunday. I take pride in being the WCF World Champion. It stimulates me mentally, physically and sexually to know that every man and woman in this company is gunning for what I have around my waist. They also want what’s in my pants, but they’re gonna have to work long and hard before they can get a wad like mine. You can interpret that any way you like. As far as tonight’s battle royal is concerned, I am both intrigued and bored by the possibilities. Let’s go by the names, one by one. Sound ‘em off, Hank.
Hank Brown: The most intriguing name has to be former WCF World Champion “Slickie T” Allen Guiliano, the man whom you beat to win the title.
Chad shrugs his shoulders; clearly he’s less than impressed.
Chad Evans: So? You said it yourself, Hank. I’ve already defeated Allen, and quite frankly he’s been pretty damn quiet for the last two weeks. I know there was a new Slickie T promo that aired today, but I’ve been busy preparing for my match. I didn’t get a chance to watch it.
Hank Brown: There were two new Slickie T promos actually. I can fill you in—
Chad Evans: That’s quite alright, Hank. I can safely assume that Slickie T has sworn vengeance upon my cranium to all who will listen. To that I say, who cares? Slickie could not beat me when he was World Champion, and he certainly cannot beat me now that he’s the former World Champion. I broke his spirit when I pinned him that night in Dallas. He will never be the same, and even if he were the same it wouldn’t be enough to beat me, as I’ve proven on two occasions.
Hank Brown: If you’re not impressed by Slickie, which I really don’t understand after the two wars that you’ve had, then how about the returning Greenfever? You have to respect him, he’s a former WCF Hardcore Champion and quite frankly he’s one of the most frightening men in this business.
Chad Evans: First of all, Hank, I don’t HAVE to respect anybody except for this man standing to my left.
Chad gestures toward Bobby. Bobby nods his head approvingly.
Chad Evans: Second of all, being a former WCF Hardcore Champion doesn’t impress me. The only Hardcore Champions that I respect are Jack of Blades, Skyler Striker and the current champion Jay Price. The rest of them are garbage wrestlers, unskilled and short on brain cells and personal hygiene. Greenfever is a NOBODY. Do you understand what I am saying? You said that he’s frightening, Hank? Well who exactly does he frighten? Does he frighten children? Does he frighten you, Hank?
Hank quickly nods his head with a frightened look on his face.
Chad Evans: That’s great, Hank. You’re a real manly man. Greenfever is a piece of shhh, and I hope that he wins tonight so that I can expose him for the fraud that he is in front of the entire world. Now who is the next name in the battle royal, Hanky?
Hank Brown: I don’t think that you understand, Chad. The winner of the battle royal gets a shot at the champion in their division, so in Greenfever’s case he would get a shot at the Hardcore Title, not the World Title.
Chad Evans: Yeah right, Hank. That’s what the higher-ups want me to believe. Then at the last minute on the night of the match they pull the ol’ switcheroo, and I’m forced to defend my title on a moment’s notice against some lunatic who escaped from an asylum and went on a killing spree through the Midwest. Next name, Hank?
Hank Brown: There’s two-time former Television Champion and recent United States Title challenger Anastasia Petrova. She’s a fierce competitor who is known to rise to the occasion in big matches.
Chad Evans: Is she really, Hank? Is she known for that? I must have missed that while I was watching her lose every match that she’s participated in for the last month. I haven’t seen Anastasia win a match since she beat Trent Townsend to earn her US Title shot, and that was weeks ago. Listen, I like Anastasia for all of the same reasons that every straight and bisexual man in the world likes her, but I can guarantee you that her losing streak is not going to end tonight. Again, I will wrestle in a dress for the next year if Anastasia wins tonight. Next name?
Hank Brown: There’s another former Television Champion, D-Day. He’s never out of a match, truly one of the gutsiest performers in the business today.
Chad Evans: I guess he’s a notch above Anastasia considering that he beat her for the Television Title, but he also lost the title in his first defense against Doc Henry.
Chad and Bobby attempt to stifle their laughter, with neither man having much success.
Hank Brown: Doc Henry is a very accomplished wrestler and an all-around—
Chad Evans: I get it, Hank. Doc Henry is the greatest wrestler since Lou Thesz. He’s faster than a speeding bullet. He can run around the world and reverse time. I see where you’re going with this, so can we please move onto the next name?
Hank Brown: There’s the newcomer, Payne.
Chad Evans: I have no idea who that is.
Hank Brown: He’s a newcomer.
Chad Evans: I gathered that much, Hank. Next!
Hank Brown: There’s a man that I’m sure you’re much more familiar with, Austin Adams of the Big Time Jerks. He’s a two-time former Tag Team Champion. In fact—
Chad Evans: Don’t even go there, Hank. I know exactly what you’re going to say. Austin Adams is the scoundrel who pinned me after Slickie T assaulted me on a Monday night in that hellhole known as Des Moines, Iowa. Austin Adams took away the WCF Tag Team Titles from The Royal Family! He must pay for this act of heresy. I hope that he does win tonight because I want him. I want to face him one-on-one in the middle of the ring so that I may exact my vengeance upon his cranium! Next?
Hank Brown: There’s one more entrant, a man who you encountered last week on Slam, former United States Champion Hector Rodriguez.
Chad Evans: Is Hector going to have his goon squad with him tonight?
Hank Brown: Are you referring to the Mara Salvatrucha gang members who traditionally accompany him to ringside?
Chad Evans: Don’t play coy with me, you prick. I am in no such mood!
Hank Brown: Sorry?
Chad Evans: It’s ok. I can’t stay mad at you, Hank. Hector, I know that you are watching this broadcast right now. I want you to listen closely to the words that are spilling from my mouth like so much toxic waste. I want you to know that you are going to pay dearly for your actions last week at Slam. I have no problem with you challenging me to a World Title match. I think it’s great that we live in a country where any idiot who wants a World Title shot can walk down to the ring, interrupt the champion and demand things that he has not earned. My problem is that you destroyed the vase of roses and the stuffed teddy bear that I sent to your manager and my dream woman, the lovely Juanita Juarez.
Hank Brown: Don’t you think that you’re playing with fire, Chad, by trying to get with Hector’s manager?
Chad glares at Hank with an incensed expression on his face.
Hank Brown: I…I didn’t say anything.
Chad Evans: Hector, you will feel my wrath, you coward! You snake without a tongue! You know what, Hank? This interview is over! I’m out of here!
Chad storms out of the room, leaving Hank and Bobby behind. Hank glances awkwardly at Bobby. Bobby remains stoic as always.
Hank Brown: So Bobby…you’re returning to the ring! When can we expect to see you in action?
Bobby Cairo: Whenever I damn well feel like it, Hank Brown.
Hank Brown: Uh-huh.
Bobby glares at Hank for a moment before walking off in the same direction as Chad.
Hank Brown: That appears to be all for me. Back to you, Zach and Shannan!
Man Made Gods Segment
A camera catches up with Brad Kane nodding his head to some piss-ant assistant and he turns and stops in his tracks.
Torture and Creeping Death are smiling. Tag Team Titles around their waists. The crowd boos. Brad Kane gets serious.
Brad Kane: Yes?-
Creeping Death: We have sort of a proposition for you.
Torture: A business deal, if you shall call it that.
Crowd cheers for Torture. Los Angeles crowd and all.
Brad Kane: Another "business meeting" from you guys, huh? And what's with the weird English accents?
Creeping Death: Obviously, you're Doctor Serious right now. Ahem. In all seriousness, Torture and I are the Man Made Gods!
Creeping Death: And since we're the face of the Tag Team Division and we're crushing our opponents we want a little something from you.
Brad Kane: No. Not at all.
Torture: We can offer you, tonight only, a night out with Jennifer Love Hewitt.
Crowd cheers. Everyone knows Kane loves JLH.
Brad Kane: Oh, hmm. Continue talking..
Torture: I just made JLH the new spokesmodel for Cool Wear Inc., and tonight she's in my hotel suite and of course she's all yours my brother, all you have to do is grant us one little wish.
Brad Kane: And that is?
Creeping Death: Next week, instead of Monday Night Slam.. you'll change the name to Monday Night.. Man Made God's.. and we'll be featured in the main event..
Torture: Against opponents that we choose.
Brad Kane: Hmm. I love Jennifer.
Torture/Creeping Death: We know!
Crowd kind of laughs at the chemistry that CD and Torture seem to have.
Brad Kane: Hmm. Monday Night Man Made Gods?
Creeping Death: Yes.
Brad Kane: You guys in the main event next week?
Creeping Death: Yes.
Brad Kane: And Jennifer is waiting for me at the hotel right down the street?
Torture: Yes, and I get my World Title shot.
Brad Kane: You got a.. wait, what?
Brad Kane: No. You have a deal, but Torture won't get his World Title shot. You know the rules. Wait till July 7th, my friend.
Torture: I hate this company.
Brad Kane: You guys need to get ready, your match is about to begin.
Torture: You're the one.. who .. should.. just .. shut up.
Torture walks away with Creeping Death as Brad Kane hurries to the exit to get to the hotel suite. The cameras focus in on Shannan and Zach at ringside.
Zach Davis: So, Brad Kane is going to meet Jennifer Love Hewitt in Torture's hotel suite right down the street in exchange for changing Monday Night Slam's name to the Man Made Gods?
Shannan Lerch: Thank god it's only for next week, but Brad Kane is a married man!
Zach Davis: Well, he's just meeting her, Shannan. Get your mind out of the gutter. Not all men are pigs.
Shannan Lerch: Yeah, yeah whatever.
Bishop/Priest vs The Man Made Gods
"Set this stage on fire" by Lil Wayne is playing as Bishop and Priest walk out from the back. As they walk down the ramp, a line of fire lights up the stage and down the sides of the ramp, all the way to the ring. Bishop and Priest walk down it and climb in the ring and pose on different sides of the ring, looking out menacingly at the crowd.
Zach Davis: Crowd is certainly behind Bishop and Priest.
Shannan Lerch: Good reason too. Torture and Creeping Death are jerks.
Zach Davis: Fair enough.
Home by Three Days Grace hits and Torture and Creeping Death come out onto the stage. They walk down the ramp as the theatrical fireworks explode and the music fades out as they give the Tag Team Titles to the ref. Both teams take to their corners and the bell sounds.
Zach Davis: Not wasting any time!
Creeping Death and Bishop start out. Bishop has control and throws CD into the corner. Hits a few punches and throws him across the ring to the other corner. CD stumbles out and Bishop hits a back body drop! Bishop tags in Priest when Creeping Death tags in Torture. Tort comes in and ducks the clothesline attempt from Priest and hits a Russian leg sweep. Torture slides out of the ring and takes Bishop off the apron and clotheslines Bishop down and the ref gets distracted. Creeping Death slides into the ring and hits For Whom The Bells Toll! Creeping Death goes back to his corner and Torture slides in and pins Priest.
Zach Davis: What the?
Shannan Lerch: Well, Bishop and Priest are a good tag team but the cheating is bit out of hand.
Zach Davis: Torture and Creeping Death are an unstoppable tag team at this point, and I agree. They have done more than a fair share of cheating.
Torture and Creeping Death hold their tag titles high into the air in the middle of the ring. They knuckle bump and taunt one more time as Bishop and Priest make their way to the back. All of a sudden Three Days Grace's Home stops and Brad Kane appears on the stage with microphone in hand.
Brad Kane: Listen! I've had enough!
Crowd cheers for Brad, however, he seems pissed off. Torture and CD just hang out in the ring smiling.
Brad Kane: That wasn't Jennifer Love Hewitt! It was Ellis in a wig!
Most of the crowd laughs, even though it was a dick move by Tort and CD.
Brad Kane: I've had enough of your pranks and jokes, I've had enough of your cheating, and right now I'm making it official! At Explosion you'll be defending your Tag Team Titles!
Zach Davis: Whoa! Big news there!
Shannan Lerch: Against who?
Brad Kane: Gods? Psh. Meet your number one contenders..
The crowd stands as Torture and Creeping Death look at each other for a split second and then..
Zach Davis: HEY! BIG TIME JERKS!
Shannan Lerch: They're the Number One Contenders!
Angus Killian and Austin Adams slide into the ring and hit Torture and Creeping Death from behind! The crowd goes wild! Killian hits Torture with his own tag title and then hits Creeping Death in the face with the Tag Title as well!
Zach Davis: Finally, Torture and Creeping Death are getting what they deserve!
Shannan Lerch: A giant Texas beat down!
They throw Torture and Creeping Death through the ropes to the outside! Zach and Shannan stand up quickly as they bounce Torture and Creeps heads off the announcers table! Angus puts Tortures head into position for a powerbomb as does Adams with Creeping Death. They both get lifted and then powerbombed at the same time through the announcers table! The crowd pops! Angus and Adams slide into the ring and hoist the tag titles to another large pop!
Brad Kane: Oh yeah! Your match at Explosion.. IS A TABLES MATCH!
Zach Davis: Whoooa!
Shannan Lerch: Ohh yeah!
Zach Davis: Big Time Jerks have the advantage now!
Shannan Lerch: Man Made Gods.. Prepare.. to be dethroned!
We cut to a commercial break as we zoom in on Torture holding his ribs coughing, and Creeping Death hardly moving in pain.
Chad Evans Segment
The cameras cut backstage where Hector Rodriguez's manager, JJ, is shown standing in the hallway alone. The crowd pops at the site of JJ since we are in MS-13 country. JJ looks to the side with a weird look on her face.
JJ: What do you want, gringo?
The camera zooms out to show that Chad Evans is standing beside her. The crowd instantly starts booing Chad Evans since he's the world champion and Hector wants that title. Chad takes her hand and kisses it gently.
Chad Evans: To be given the chance to stare into those beautiful eyes for a night that will be never forgotten.
JJ gives him another weird look but slightly smiles. Chad Evans looks around for a second before turning back to JJ.
Chad Evans: So, where's Hector and the rest of the fellas?
JJ: Hector is in the dressing room getting ready and I'm still mad at him about last week.
Chad Evans: The flowers and the bear?
JJ looks at Chad and smiles.
JJ: I'm sorry about what Hector did.
Chad waves it away.
Chad Evans: No, forget about it. I could send you a truck full of them if I wanted to. What are you doing later after the show?
JJ's eyes light up slightly but the look on her face falls as she looks past Evans. Chad turns around and Bobby Cairo walks onscreen. He gestures towards Chad who is still holding JJ's hand. They let go and Chad steps back.
Bobby Cairo: What are you doing?
Chad turns to Bobby.
Chad Evans: Getting blocked apparently.
Bobby starts to respond but then stops as he looks down the hall. Adrian and Phobeya are standing down the hallway behind JJ.
Bobby Cairo: Uh oh, trouble.
Chad turns around as Phoebya and Adrian come running down the hall. Chad pushes JJ away so she doesn't get hurt as Bobby and Chad start brawling with Adrian and Phobeya in the middle of the hallway. They start getting the upperhand after a few seconds when suddenly a yell can be heard down the hall and Hector Rodriguez is seen jogging toward the action. Before he can get to the group, security bursts out of a side hallway and pin him against the wall while more security splits up the four men brawling in the hallway. Security eventually starts pushing Chad and Bobby past JJ and toward the corner. Just before they reach the corner, Chad leans over the security and blows a passionate kiss to JJ who stops and grins a little. She turns around and ends up face-to-face with Hector, whose face turns to anger at the smile on her face. JJ is bombarded by ten minutes worth of words in one look from Hector Rodriguez. Her smile drops as she realizes what he would have said if he would talk. He grabs her by the arm and starts dragging her up the hallway, with Adrian and Phobeya not far behind.
Ittrock/Kris Chambers vs Chad Evans
Zach Davis: It’s time now for our featured handicapped bout of the evening. Two young men are about to receive the opportunity of a lifetime in this match.
Shannan Lerch: That is correct, Zach. We are on the verge of witnessing—
Zach Davis: Excuse me, Shannan. I wasn’t finished.
Shannan Lerch: Alright, Vickie. Go ahead.
Zach Davis: Ittrock and Kris Chambers are set to join forces against the WCF World Champion Chad Evans. For the Miami native Ittrock this will be his first action in a WCF ring after seven years of competing professionally in Holland, where he was a heavyweight champion in his own right. We’ve seen Chambers before. He competed in an over-the-top battle royal a few weeks ago, ultimately finishing runner up in that match to Marisa.
Shannan Lerch: May I speak now?
Zach nods his head in the affirmative as Shannan rolls her eyes.
Shannan Lerch: It’s a good thing that Chambers didn’t win that battle royal because we all know what happened to Marisa. She was “rewarded” with a Hardcore Title shot against Jay Price, who proceeded to beat the living daylights out of her during their match. It was one of the worst beatings that we’ve ever witnessed in a WCF ring and no one has seen or heard from Marisa since.
Zach Davis: Actually, I made sure that she got home alright after the show that night.
Shannan Lerch: Home? The only place that she was going was the hospital…and why are you licking your lips, Zach?
Zach Davis: Oh no reason. I was just thinking about a nice pink meal that I ate this one time.
Shannan Lerch: Right.
Zach Davis: Anyway this handicapped exhibition that we are about to witness could have serious implications on the World Title picture. It’s a non-title bout of course, but can you imagine what would happen if Chambers and Ittrock were able to defeat the WCF World Champion Chad Evans?
Shannan Lerch: I cannot, Zach, but then I never imagined that I would still be sitting here next to you in the year 2010.
Smoke appears in the arena and music 'I made It', begins to play. Ittrock appears on the ramp and looks to the crowd.
Kyle Steel: ITTROCK!!!!
He's feeling fine and walks to the ring. He's letting everyone know he's has confidence in himself.
Zach Davis: This is an extremely confident looking young man, I tell you what.
Shannan Lerch: So was General Custer as he marched his forces to the Little Bighorn.
The Lights in the arena fade to black. After a brief moment the lights start flash slow as Bullet For My Valentine - Domination Blast out the PA System. Kris Chambers walks out onto the stage area and stops while he stand in the middle of the stage.
Kyle Steel: KRIS CHAMBERS!!!!
Pyro shoots off up in the air with smoke rising all around Chambers then he walks through the smoke and walks down the aisle to the ring. Kris climbs up the steps and goes in between the ropes entering the ring.
Zach Davis: Kris Chambers is an impressive young prospect. In fact I’ve been impressed with his candor over the past week, Shannan.
Shannan Lerch: Chambers had strong words for the World Champion, promising to take Chad Evans down a few notches in tonight’s match. I don’t know if that’s going to happen, Zach, but it’s nice to see that kind of passion from a young competitor.
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. The crowd reacts mostly with cheers, though there are some boos as Chad Evans appears at the center of the beacon wearing his traditional wrestling attire and a black robe, with Bobby Cairo standing at his side. Chad has the WCF World Title strapped around his waist.
Kyle Steel: WCF WORLD CHAMPION….CHAD EVANS!!!!
Evans and Cairo stride purposefully to the ring with focused looks on their faces, paying no mind to the fans, 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.
Zach Davis: The World Champion does not appear to be in a good mood, Shannan.
Shannan Lerch: Chad has a lot on his mind tonight, that’s for sure.
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 his World Title belt to the referee, and then he does some last minute warm-ups while discussing strategy with Cairo.
Zach Davis: Chad made allusions to the possibility that Bobby Cairo could intervene in this match if the situation dictated, Shannan.
Shannan Lerch: In Chad’s mind that is fair play since it would level the playing field, but I’m sure that referee Kirk Kirkpatrick will be keeping his eye on Mr. Cairo at ringside, to ensure that there’s no funny stuff.
Zach Davis: Speaking of funny stuff, have you seen this web series called Star-ving? It features the kid who played Bud Bundy as a broke ass former child actor who can’t get work so he spends his time drinking and attempting to kill himself. He also runs a porn stand with his loser buddy, played by the kid from Parker Lewis Can’t Lose.
Shannan Lerch: Oh my goodness, that sounds like a hilarious premise!
Zach Davis: It is hilarious. You can stream the episodes at http://www.crackle.com/c/Star-ving
Shannan Lerch: And now that we’ve paid the bills let’s get to the match!
DING! DING! DING!
Zach Davis: It looks like Ittrock and Kris Chambers are both trying to start this match for their team. Referee Kirkpatrick is explaining to them that only one man can be in the ring at a time.
Shannan Lerch: Chad is telling the ref to let them go, Zach. He’s not intimidated at all by his larger opponents. He’s ready to fight both men!
Chad charges Ittrock and Chambers, leaps into the air and buries a foot into the chest of each man. Ittrock and Chambers fly backwards a few feet before landing on the mat. Chad takes turns unloading on each man with stiff karate kicks that make their bodies reverberate like machine gun bullets.
Zach Davis: Chad Dogg is wasting no time going after these young hopefuls who have dared to oppose him!
Chad measures Ittrock’s cranium before unloading with a perfectly symmetrical roundhouse kick to Ittrock’s jaw. The impact sends several small white objects flying from Ittrock’s jaw into the audience.
Shannan Lerch: Oh my god! Chad just knocked some of Ittrock’s teeth loose with that kick! This is getting ugly quickly!
Chad whips Chambers into the ropes and hits him with a double-backhand thrust that knocks Chambers to the mat.
Zach Davis: Chad is dividing his attention between both of his opponents at the moment. Normally I wouldn’t say this in a two-on-one situation, but I think that it would behoove either Chambers or Ittrock to take their place on the apron and take some time to regroup.
Shannan Lerch: I think they should both take their place on the apron and leave Chad to perform a calisthenics routine inside of the ring.
Chad whips Ittrock hard into the corner of the ring. Chad bounds toward the corner, performs a handspring, and hits a picture perfect back elbow onto his opponent. Evans takes a moment to observe his opponent; Ittrock stumbles forward for a couple of steps before falling face first onto the mat. Chad turns his attention to Chambers. Evans points at Kris and mouths the words “I want you!”
Zach Davis: Evans is harkening to the old Uncle Sam recruitment poster!
Shannan Lerch: As they say, Zach, war is hell. That could also describe what Chambers and Ittrock are experiencing right now.
Evans and Chambers meet at the center of the ring. Chambers surprises the World Champion with a big combination of punches that seem to energize both the young challenger and the audience in the Staples Center.
Zach Davis: Kris Chambers is unloading on the World Champion Chad Evans! I don’t believe it! I never expected to see Chad Evans on the losing end of a stand-up battle in a WCF ring!
Shannan Lerch: Oof! Evans just socked Chambers in the kisser with a right cross! That ended the challenger’s flurry of offense in short order!
Chambers staggers back from the impact of Chad’s punch. Chad measures Kris and drills him with a vintage Evans Axe Kick that drops the challenger where he stands.
Zach Davis: Axe Kick! We’ve seen that move end matches for the Chad Dogg!
Shannan Lerch: It looks like Chambers is out cold, Zach! There’s the cover by Chad!
Kirk Kirkpatrick: ONE…
Zach Davis: Kickout by Chambers! He’s a tough young man, that’s for sure!
Shannan Lerch: Chambers has been through some rough times in his life, Zach. He’s developed what they call a “stiff upper lip”. That means that you can’t knock him out if you hit him in the lip…or something like that.
Evans whips his young opponent into the ropes, clearly disgusted by Chambers’ insistence on kicking out. Chad puts his head down, telegraphing a back body drop. Chambers sees the opening and gets a double-underhook on Chad’s arms before dropping him with a DDT. Chambers covers the World Champion.
Kirk Kirkpatrick: ONE…
Zach Davis: Kris Chambers got a two-count! Kris Chambers got a two-count! Kris Chambers almost beat the World Champion!
Shannan slaps Zach in his face.
Shannan Lerch: Get a hold of yourself!
Zach rubs his reddened cheek.
Zach Davis: Sorry. That was just a really exciting and unexpected moment in the match.
Chad scurries to his feet and tries to fend off Chambers, but the young challenger will not relent. Chambers unloads on Evans with punches before picking him up and hitting a vertical suplex. Chad gets to his feet, though he’s holding his back and grimacing. Kris measures the champion and hits a vicious running clothesline. Chambers screams at Chad and gestures with his hands. Kris is taunting Evans, daring him to get up.
Zach Davis: Kris Chambers is fired up now! He’s got the World Champion Chad Evans on the ropes!
Meanwhile, Ittrock finally begins stirring on the mat. He slowly gets to his feet
Shannan Lerch: It looks like this is about to become a two-on-one match once again and it couldn’t come at a worse time for the champion!
Chambers and Ittrock join forces by whipping Evans into the ropes and drilling him with a double clothesline. Ittrock makes the cover on the World Champion.
Kirk Kirkpatrick: ONE…
Zach Davis: Kickout by the champion, but we could be on the verge of a monumental upset if Chambers and Ittrock can continue to work together!
Steve Thunder, the United States Champion, has appeared on the entryway. He's watching the match carefully.
Shannan Lerch: What's he doing here, I wonder?
Ittrock and Chambers position Chad for a double suplex. They lift him into the air, hold him for several moments and then drop him onto the mat. Chambers makes the cover on Chad.
Kirk Kirkpatrick: ONE…
Zach Davis: Chad kicks out again, but he didn’t have as much oomph on that kick out!
Shannan Lerch: I think Chambers and Ittrock noticed that too, Zach. They just exchanged a glance…it looks like they’re ready to put this match away.
Chambers hoists Chad onto his shoulders in the electric chair position while Ittrock climbs to the top rope. Cairo pounds the mat at ringside, trying to encourage his protégé, but unable to intervene. Ittrock steadies himself on the top turnbuckle. Chambers positions his body so that he and Evans are facing Ittrock’s corner. Ittrock launches himself from the top rope and hits a stiff flying clothesline that sends Evans crashing to the mat.
Zach Davis: Doomsday Device on the World Champion! Could this be it?
Ittrock drapes his arm on Chad’s chest.
Kirk Kirkpatrick: ONE…
Zach Davis: Evans got his foot on the ropes to break up the pin!
Shannan Lerch: Chambers and Ittrock are celebrating, Zach! They think they’ve won this match!
Chad slowly gets to his feet as Ittrock and Chambers celebrate, their backs turned to him. The referee tries to explain that Chad got his foot on the ropes but they do not understand him. Chad sneaks up from behind and grabs hold of Ittrock before tossing him through the ropes. Ittrock lands at the feet of Bobby Cairo, who quickly helps Ittrock to his feet before planting him with the Security Breach on the floor, unbeknownst to the referee. Inside the ring Chad spins Chambers around, kicks him in the midsection and lifts Chambers onto his shoulders in position for a Burning Hammer.
Zach Davis: BK Killer coming up from Chad Evans!
Chad hits the BK Killer in the middle of the ring! But Steve Thunder has made his way down to ringside, and he's picked up the WCF World Heavyweight Title. Thunder is inspecting it. Evans looks at him for a brief moment, wondering what he's up to, before realizing the match at hand is more important. He makes the cover on Chambers.
Kirk Kirkpatrick: ONE…
Zach Davis: Chambers kicked out! I don’t believe it! We’ve never seen anyone kick out from the BK Killer before!
Chad is shocked; his eyes have grown wide and he’s practically pleading with the referee. Steve Thunder has put down the World Title and is leaving the ringside area.
Shannan Lerch: Chad is stunned, Zach! He cannot believe that this match isn’t over!
Zach Davis: And what was with Steve Thunder, checking out the World Title like that? Does he know something we don't?
Chad shakes his head and brushes his hair back with his hands, clearly trying to regroup. Meanwhile, Chambers is getting to his feet. Chad notices this development in the corner of his eye and quickly buries a double-axehandle into the back of his opponent. The blow seemingly has no effect on Chambers as he rises to his feet and stares Evans straight in the eyes.
Shannan Lerch: Chad looks like he’s seen a ghost!
In the blink of an eye Chambers wraps his arms around Evans and drills him with a belly-to-back suplex. Kris doesn’t go for a cover. Instead he waits for Evans to get to his feet. When Evans does get up Chambers lifts him onto his shoulders in the Death Valley Driver position. He hits the move in the middle of the ring.
Zach Davis: Hell's Demise by Kris Chambers! He makes the cover! Could this be it?!
Kirk Kirkpatrick: ONE…
Zach Davis: Evans kicks out! I thought for sure that Chambers had him!
Shannan Lerch: It was close, Zach! It was awfully close, but Chad had just enough to kick out before the three!
Chambers signals for his finish, drawing a decent pop from the crowd. He goes for a spinning Impaler, but Chad avoids it. Chad knees Chambers in the midsection and hits an Implant DDT of his own.
Zach Davis: Chambers went for his finisher, Deadly Intentions, but Chad countered with a nearly identical move! Now both men are down!
Shannan Lerch: It looks like Chad is getting up, Zach!
Chad gets to his feet and walks over to Chambers. He pulls Kris up to a kneeling position and then sticks Chambers’ head between his legs.
Zach Davis: This could be it, Shannan! I think Chad is setting up for the Anarchist Uprising!
Chad wraps his arms around Chambers’ waist and then lifts him into the air. Evans holds Chambers in the crucifix position, posing for the fans, before spinning and hitting a sitout powerbomb.
Zach Davis: There it is, Anarchist Uprising! Chad makes the cover!
Zach Davis: Chad Evans has defeated a very game Kris Chambers and his tag team partner Ittrock!
Shannan Lerch: Where is Ittrock anyway? Oh nevermind, he’s finally coming to on the floor outside of the ring.
“Panic Switch” hits the PA as Chad rises to his feet and gets his hand raised by the referee.
Kyle Steel: WINNER….CHAD EVANS!!!!
Cairo grabs the WCF World Title from ringside and slides into the ring with it. Bobby hands the title belt to his protégé, who quickly slings the belt over his shoulder. Chad looks down at Chambers and nods at the young challenger in a show of respect. Chad then turns his attention to his legions of adoring fans, and the many people who hate him, by climbing onto the turnbuckles and holding up the WCF World Title for all to see.
Big Time Jerks Segment
The arena lights fade down. A white spotlight flies around the arena looking for Superstars in the crowd. Jack Nicholson, Kobe Bryant, Brad Pitt and Randy Newman are spotted. Randy Newman stands up and motions to the entranceway.
"I Love L.A." starts playing as a huge burst of pyro blasts and out step the Big Time Jerks. Adam Young is wearinga Dodgers jersey with Gibson on the back, Angus Killian is wearing a Magic Johnson Lakers jersey and Austin Adams is wearing a LA Galaxy jersey with Beckham on the back. The fans are going crazy as they walk to the ring.
Adam Young: We love L.A.!
The BTJ's start throwing out BTJ wrist bands and frisbees as "California Love" by Tupac starts playing. The fans erupt.
Adam Young: There is no one group better for L.A. than the BTJ's. We in body everything L.A. is about, championships. And talking about championships we just might cash in on one tonight or not. Soon the BTJ's will be three time WCF World tag team champions.
Austin Adams: We're already fighting at Explosion but tonight I show that we earned another shot at those straps. L.A. get ready casue your favorite team is in Hollywood baby.
The Big Time Jerks leave the ring.
The New Confederacy vs Jake Keeton/Ace Garrison
Shannan Lerch: Now, before our main event, and a match I’m personally excited to see… The New Confederacy takes on Jake Keeton and Ace Garrison!
Kyle Steel: The following is a tag team match, for the WCF Television Title! First to the ring, weighing in at a combined 440 pounds…. The New Confederacy!
"Renegade" by Styx begins to play over the PA system as Johnny Reb and Doc Henry step out onto the stage, accompanied by Doc’s wife, Mary and Johnny’s trainer/manager Don Jesus. Images of past matches play on the Jumbotron, while the group makes their way down the ramp, working the crowd at ringside. Doc mounts the ring steps in a dignified manner, while Johnny slips through the ropes. Both men take a moment to pose for the fans before going to their corner to await the bell.
Zach Davis: Is there anything that doesn’t excite you, Shannan?
Shannan Lerch: Shut up, Zach.
Kyle Steel: And their opponents. First, from Cincinnati, Ohio… Ace Garrison!
"Control" by Puddle of Mudd hits the speaker system. The speaker brushes aside and Ace Garrison appears onto the stage. He stands there for a moment and looks amongst the fans. He smirks before making his way down the ramp. Ace walks up the ring steps, wipes his feet on the mat, and enters through the middle rope. He quickly walks towards the farthest corner and climbs up it. Once again, he looks amongst the crowd before smirking and jumping down.
Zach Davis: Now, Ace Garrison and Jake Keeton have formed some kind of alliance, but for the life of me, I can’t figure out why. Garrison’s record hasn’t been what I’d call spectacular, while Keeton has only lost one match so far.
Shannan Lerch: …to none other than the New Confederacy’s own Johnny Reb. This is gonna be a close one, Zach.
The lights dim, a hush fills the arena.
"Still Unbroken" by Lynyrd Skynyrd hits the PA. A mixed reaction, of mostly cheers, billows from the crowd.
Kyle Steel: Coming to the ring, the WCF Television Champion... Weighing in at 219 pounds, from Lexington, Kentucky...
Broken bones, broken hearts
Stripped down and torn apart
A little bit of rust - I'm still runnin'
Jake Keeton slowly emerges through the curtains
Shannan Lerch: Here comes the champion... The All-American Nightmare!
Countin' miles, countin' tears
Twisted roads, shiftin' gears
Year after year - it's all or nothin'
With his full attention focused on the upcoming match, the champion begins to walk down the ramp.
But I'm not home, I'm not lost
Still holdin' on to what I got
Ain't much left
No there's so much that's been stolen
I guess I've lost everything I've had
But I'm not dead, at least not yet
Still alone, still alive, Still UNBROKEN
I'm still alone, still alive,
I'M STILL UNBROKEN
Jake Keeton barely acknowledging the fans, as he steps into the ring and begins to stretch, as he keeps an eye on his challenger.
Zach Davis: There’s the bell! Keeton starting things off for his team, and it looks like he’ll be taking on Doc Henry.
Shannan Lerch: There’s already some bad blood between these two, ever since Jake Keeton teamed up with D-Day to eliminate Doc Henry in a TV Title match!
The two men circle warily in the ring, sizing each other up. Suddenly, Henry hauls back, and slaps Keeton right across the face.
Zach Davis: And there’s that bad blood you were talking about, Shannan. Doc Henry is definitely looking for a little payback this evening.
Keeton shakes it off and gives Doc a wicked grin. Henry levels a punch at Keeton; Keeton avoids it and comes back with one of his own. The two trade blows for a few seconds, before Henry delivers a hard kick to Keeton’s midsection, doubling him over. Doc hurries to take advantage of the situation.
Shannan Lerch: There it is! Pedigree from Doc Henry! Keeton is down! Henry with an early pin!
Zach Davis: Only a one-count. A little too early for a pinfall here.
Undeterred, Henry backs off to allow Keeton to get to his feet. They tie up, but Jake shoves Doc away, then hauls off and nails him with a discus punch that leaves Doc reeling. A follow-up punch drops Henry to the mat. Keeton runs up the nearest turnbuckle…
Shannan Lerch: Split-legged Moonsault!
Zach Davis: …you would know all about anything done split-legged…
Shannan Lerch: Shut up, Zach. Keeton goes for a pin!
Zach Davis: But Johnny Reb breaks it up! It looks like Reb is tired of waiting for his turn!
Indeed, Johnny is in Keeton’s face, steadily backing him away from Doc Henry. Ace Garrison climbs into the ring to even the odds, as the referee comes over and starts shoving the men apart. Reluctantly, Reb and Garrison go back to their respective corners, but only after being threatened with a disqualification.
Shannan Lerch: It looks like Johnny bought his partner some much-needed recuperation time, but will it be enough?
In the meantime, Doc Henry has climbed to the second rope. Keeton sees him and rushes over to pull him down. Just as the All American Nightmare reaches him, Doc launches himself from the ropes with a flying back elbow that sends Keeton staggering back.
Zach Davis: Apparently, it was, Shannan. And now Doc Henry makes the tag to Johnny Reb!
Johnny climbs the turnbuckle in his corner, while Doc runs to the next nearest, and also begins to climb. Jake Keeton seems to regain his balance, steadying himself at last in the middle of the ring. The referee starts yelling at Doc to get down, but Henry ignores him. Reb and Henry both leap from their respective turnbuckles simultaneously.
Shannan Lerch: Double missile dropkick! I don’t believe it! Johnny Reb makes the pin while his partner rolls out of the ring! This could be it!
Zach Davis: And there’s Ace Garrison, literally dragging Johnny away from Garrison’s partner! Reb doesn’t look too happy about it, getting in Garrison’s face now, and yelling at him.
Shannan Lerch: Turnabout is fair play, Zach. Reb broke up Keeton’s pinfall attempt on Henry, and Garrison’s just giving it back to him.
Zach Davis: And more! Ace Garrison just kicked Johnny Reb in the midsection! He’s got him in a facelock… Looks like he’s going for…
Shannan Lerch: He is! Ace Garrison just planted Johnny Reb with a DDT! And here comes Doc Henry!
In moments, an all-out brawl breaks out in the middle of the ring and brings the frenzied crowd to their feet, cheering wildly for the chaotic display. The ref stays well out of the way this time, urging them to break it up from a relatively safe distance. The battle surges back and forth for several seconds, until Johnny clotheslines Garrison over the ropes to the mats outside the ring and starts yelling at him again.
Johnny Reb: A fluke?! I’ll show ya a fluke, y’damn yankee sonofabitch!
Reb’s tirade is abruptly interrupted by a tap on the shoulder. Slowly, he turns around… and finds himself face-to-face with a smiling Jake Keeton, who shakes his head and wags a finger at him in warning. Johnny wastes no time, grabbing Keeton’s arm and Irish-whipping him across the ring. Reb leaps onto the middle rope and springboards off as Keeton comes back toward him, taking him down with an arm drag.
Zach Davis: Look at Johnny go! The Inveterate Confederate is fired up tonight!
Johnny pulls Keeton to his feet, then makes a run for the ropes and bounces off again, looking to take his opponent down with a bulldog. But Jake is ready for him, and neatly sidesteps, adding to Reb’s momentum with a hard shove that sends him through the ropes on the opposite side.
Shannan Lerch: And so is the Champ, Zach! Keeton finally makes a much-needed tag, and here comes Ace Garrison!
Zach Davis: Finally!
Johnny starts climbing into the ring once more, but Ace sends him to the floor again with a baseball slide. Ace slips under the ropes and helps Reb stand…only to whip him into the crowd barrier. The audience goes completely insane at this, some urging Reb to defend himself, some attempting to spur Garrison to greater heights, but most of them simply thrilled to be this close to the action. Ace grabs for Johnny’s arm and goes to whip him into the ring apron, but Reb plants his feet and reverses it, sending Garrison crashing into the edge of the ring instead. Reb lays into Garrison with a series of punches. The ref starts counting.
Shannan Lerch: Ohmygawd! I think Johnny is gonna kill Ace Garrison!
Zach Davis: He’s just proving a point, Shannan. Garrison had the audacity to come right out and say Johnny’s victory over Keeton last month was accidental…
Shannan Lerch: I guess…
With the referee’s count now up to six, Johnny rolls Garrison into the ring, then climbs in himself. Reb pulls Ace to his feet and goes for a facebreaker DDT, but Garrison slips out of it at the last possible second. With Johnny flat on his back, Ace grabs Reb’s legs and quickly applies a Boston Crab. Reb grits his teeth and immediately starts straining for the ropes.
Zach Davis: This is one of the most painful submissions in professional wrestling, Shannan. Reb’s only hope is to get to the ropes…
Shannan Lerch: Or his partner… Doc Henry has his hand out, and is urging Johnny toward him…
Johnny sees Doc’s outstretched hand in his peripheral vision, and, with a great effort, manages to turn himself to face his corner before collapsing to the mat. The ref comes over to check on him, asking if he wants to submit. Reb vehemently shakes his head, as Mary and Don Jesus start to pound on the mat, encouraging him to get up. Mary turns to the crowd, gesturing wildly until a slow, rhythmic clap starts up.
Zach Davis: The audience is starting to get behind Reb, but it may be too little, too late. Garrison has a distinct weight advantage, nearly 30 pounds, and all of it focused on Johnny’s lower back.
Even so, Johnny seems to gather strength from the encouragement of the crowd. He pushes himself up, reaches out… but he’s too far away to make the tag. His hand comes down on the mat, and he begins to pull himself forward, inch by excruciating inch. Finally, he’s just close enough to slap Doc’s hand.
Shannan Lerch: There’s the tag! And Doc Henry’s on the ropes! Ace Garrison doesn’t want to let go of his hold on Reb….
Henry dives off the ropes, right on top of Ace. It isn’t pretty, but it’s effective in dislodging the tenacious combatant from Henry’s partner. Johnny sort of just falls out of the ring, while Doc, sitting on top of Garrison, starts unleashing a series of punches on his opponent until the referee makes him quit. Quickly, Henry rolls Garrison over and covers.
Thr—NO! Garrison gets a shoulder up.
Zach Davis: I thought for sure Doc had him there!
Henry backs off, giving Garrison space to get up. But instead, Garrison rolls and tags in Keeton!
Shannan Lerch: Here comes the Great American Nightmare!
Reb tags himself in, wanting to get a piece of Keeton. Henry looks slightly annoyed but gets on the apron. Reb and Keeton tie up.
Zach Davis: Another taste of what we'll be getting at Explosion.
Reb throws Keeton to the ropes and kicks him in the gut, following up with a Facebreaker DDT! He then stomps a few times and climbs up to the top rope.
Shannan Lerch: This is where Reb is dangerous.. what is he going for?
Reb flies off the top with the Saturday Night Special!
Zach Davis: This is how Reb made it into the Trilogy Cup Tournament!
But Keeton rolls away! Not enough, though, because Reb lands right on Keeton's legs.
Shannan Lerch: DAMN! That looked painful. REALLY painful.
Keeton yells in pain. He tries to get up... but he slumps back down. His leg might be broken. He lunges and tags Garrison back into the match before rolling out.
Zach Davis: I hope Jake Keeton is okay but this doesn't look good.
As Garrison comes in, Doc Henry tags himself back in, much to Reb's surprise.
Shannan Lerch: Guess Henry didn't like Reb tagging himself in earlier!
Henry hits Garrison with a Clothesline, sending him down. Garrison gets back up, gets Clotheslined down once more, and Henry climbs to the top.
Zach Davis: What's he going for now?
Henry dives, going for the Confederate Rocket, but Garrison sidesteps him and gets out of the way. Henry stumbles to his feet and Garrison hits him with the Ace High!
Shannan Lerch: This could be it!
Garrison shoves Reb off the ropes before pinning Henry!
Zach Davis: That's it! Garrison and Keeton have defeated the former Tag Team Champions!
Henry slides out of the ring as Garrison stands up and celebrates. Keeton has finally gotten up to his feet.
Shannan Lerch: Maybe Keeton is okay after all. At any rate, he gets to celebrate his victory-
...but Ace Garrison Clotheslines him down.
Zach Davis: WHAT?
Garrison starts stomping at Jake Keeton, and the crowd is booing. Garrison is focusing on Keeton's already injured leg.
Shannan Lerch: What the hell is this?! I thought they were friends!?
Zach Davis: Guess not? I don't know!
Garrison kicks repeatedly at the leg before wrapping Keeton in a Figure Four Leglock! Keeton is yelling in pain and the crowd is continuing to boo. The bell is ringing, but obviously no one cares. Garrison stomps Keeton's leg a few more times after releasing the hold and then kicks him out of the ring.
Shannan Lerch: What was that all about?
Zach Davis: Maybe we'll find out.. he's getting a mic.
Garrison has grabbed the mic from Kyle Steel.
Ace Garrison: You're all wondering why I attacked Jake Keeton... but it should be obvious! On Slam, I earned the right to compete in the WCF Trilogy Cup tournament if any of the other competitors were unable to participate..
Garrison looks down at Keeton outside the ring, unable to stand, and a smile crosses his face. The audience suddenly understands as well, and boos him mercilessly.
Ace Garrison: ...And it looks like poor Jake Keeton is going to be unable to compete! So Johnny Reb... I'll see you at Explosion.
Garrison leaves the ring and heads to the back, smirking. Medics are attending to Jake Keeton, finally helping him up and helping him limp to the back.
Shannan Lerch: Well... it was smart of Garrison, at the very least!
Zach Davis: Smart? I guess so, but you have to draw the line SOMEWHERE, Shannan, that was downright wrong. Opportunistic, sadistic, and wrong.
Shannan Lerch: Maybe so.. but Ace Garrison is going to Explosion!
Title Contendership Battle Royal
Hector Rodriguez vs D-Day vs Anastasia Petrova vs Greenfever vs Payne vs Austin Adams vs Slickie T
Zach Davis: Well, this has certainly been a strange night tonight with the majority MS-13 members out in the crowd.
Shannan Lerch: Everything's turned upside down in terms of reactions, they're booing people they should cheer and vice versa. I can only imagine how bad it will be here in our main event tonight.
"Posession" by White Castle starts playing and out walks Payne from the back to a chorus of boos from the crowd. Being used to the boos, he shrugs them off. Payne walks down the ramp and climbs the steps before climing in the ring. He taunts the crowd in attendance and then turns to the entranceway.
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! Anastasia looks a little taken aback at the boos she receives also.
Shannan Lerch: This crowd is vicious, even a hot Russian woman can't get any love!
Zach Davis: Never fear, I'll give her some love.
Shannan Lerch: Zach!
"Sonne" by Rammstein plays as Austin Adams steps into the arena. Adams stands there on the ramp and throws his arms up expecting to hear the "BTJ" chants that normally accompany his walk down the ramp but he is also met with boos. This appears to bother him as he reaches the ring and slides in, opting to not do his normal somersault into the ring. He stands with some of the other competitors who are looking out at the crowd confused.
Give Me The Meltdown by Rob Thomas plays in the speakers and the boos start getting louder.
Shannan Lerch: Well, I can see why they'd boo him since he had a heated rivalry with Hector for a couple of weeks.
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. D-Day stands in the ring, still being booed, and he smirks out at the crowd, waving them away.
The lights drop inside the arena as "Run Rabbit Run" by Rob Zombie begins over the P.A. system.
Ain't nuthin but nuthin'.
They all run like scared little rabbits.
Run rabbit run.
RUN RABBIT RUN!"
As the aggressive drums kick in Greenfever emerges from the darkness. His face and hands are dripping fresh blood. Where the crowd normally would boo Greenfever, they actually cheer for him a little bit. Greenfever looks out at the crowd, and shakes his head as he walks down to the ring. He jumps onto the apron and climbs into the ring. He starts acting all crazy and causes the other wrestlers to clear the ring. He goes around to the turnbuckles and tries to intimidate the crowd but they keep cheering him. Then the lights go out.
"Hit 'Em Up" by Lil Wayne hits the speakers and out from the back walks Hector Rodriguez followed by his manager Juanita Juarez aka JJ. The crowd comes completely alive as the cheers get louder and louder until you can barely hear yourself. This pumps Hector and JJ up even more.
Shannan Lerch: These people are crazy! They're cheering one of the worst people in WCF today!
Zach Davis: Half these people run with him or wear the same colors as Hector and his friends.
Hector stands at the top of the ramp and holds his arms out, as if absorbing the cheers. He finally leans forward and flexes his arms towards each other and roars out, his eyes on the ring. Hector finally starts walking down the ramp and keeps his focus soley on the ring as JJ walks along the barricade, high-fiving crowd members. Adrian and Phobeya walk out from the back and begin high fiving crowd members on each side as the four MS-13 members walk slowly down the ramp, reveling in the positive reaction they get from the crowd.
"Mara" chants mixed in with "Hector" chants are heard all over the arena. Hector walks over to a group of fans who are comprised almost completely of MS-13 gang members and he leans against the barricade, everyone's hands reaching over to touch Hector, their true world champion. Finally Hector stands up and walks over to the ring steps. Hector holds the ropes open for JJ who steps inside. She walks across the ring and is handed a mic as Hector, Adrian and Phobeya step inside. Hector walks over to Greenfever who is still inside the ring. The two get face-to-face but Greenfever isn't backing down. Adrian and Phobeya walk over and stand on each side of Greenfever.
Greenfever finally realizes this is not the fight to pick and walks over to the ropes. He steps to the outside, onto the apron but doesn't jump to ringside with everyone else. JJ stands in the center of the ring as the lights come back on and the music fades out.
JJ: See, that is how the fans should be reacting each week!
The crowd pops huge and "Mara" chants break out again.
JJ: Those filthy gringos don't know what they're talking about when they boo Hector each week. Hector is going to win this battle royal tonight. He is going to represent Mara Salvatrucha and show the world what we are all about!
The cheers are heard again and it's once again hard to hear yourself over the chants and cheers. Hector, Adrian and Phobeya stand on turnbuckles, with their arms raised, making MS-13 gang signs.
JJ: And there's NOTHING that ANYONE can do about it!
That's when 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”. The boos coming from the crowd are almost louder than Hector's cheers.
Slickie 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, which is not that many. There are more fans trying to slap him than slap his hand. As he 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.
Slickie is instantly face-to-face with the three male members of MS-13 as JJ climbs out of the ring. D-Day slides into the ring and stands beside Slickie T.
"Master of Puppets" by Metallica hits the speakers and the crowd starts booing again.
Zach Davis: Oh what now?!
Shannan Lerch: Hey, that's my brother's music!
Zach Davis: Ow! Sorry, don't hit me!
Seth Lerch walks out from the back, microphone in hand. He stands there for a couple of minutes as the crowd continues to boo him. He just stands there smiling and laughing. Right as the crowd starts to calm down, Seth lifts the mic up.
Seth Lerch: Ok, so I came out here...
Seth is cut off as "puta" chants can be heard. Seth starts laughing again and once the chants die down, he speaks once more.
Seth Lerch: You know, I bet there's a huge shortage of workers at local taco stands right now.
The boos are deafening as Seth continues to incite the crowd. It takes a little longer to get some time to speak this time, but Seth's face gets serious.
Seth Lerch: I came out here for two reasons. One was to bring out the referees for tonight's battle royal and the other one was to bring out security to take care of a little problem...
Security walks out from the back and walks down to the ring. They climb inside and Slickie T and D-Day step off to the side as the security walks up to Adrian and Phobeya and grabs hold of them. Hector starts shoving them back.
Seth Lerch: Whoa whoa whoa. Hector, buddy, calm down or they'll be taking you to the back, too. That's right, Adrian and Phobeya are banned from ringside so that they don't affect the outcome of this match.
Boos are heard again throughout the arena as both members of MS-13 are taken to the back. A couple of seconds later, two referees walk out from the back and down the ramp.
Zach Davis: What the hell!?!? Isn't that Stanley Moser???
Shannan Lerch: That's the crooked referee my brother paid off months ago in a different match that was called bad.
The crowd and Hector and JJ all notice this and the boos are heard even louder. Hector is livid in the ring and JJ isn't too happy either. The referees walk around and convince everyone to get into the ring. Seth is still standing on top of the ramp.
Seth Lerch: Hector, my man, don't look so angry. You gotta keep your cool. You know the saying "what goes around, comes around"? Well, Stanley is for all the times you've screwed over your opponents by having your amigos interfere in your match. Start this match!
The bell rings and the crowd boos as Seth steps to the back. D-Day and Slickie T immediately jump Hector Rodriguez and start pounding away at him.
Zach Davis: Look out-
Payne is immediately thrown out by Greenfever, and Anastasia Petrova is immediately thrown out by Adams.
Shannan Lerch: That was fast!
D-Day runs at Austin Adams, Clotheslining him over the top rope as well!
Zach Davis: D-Day, looking strong-
...but Greenfever comes from behind and tosses D-Day over the top rope also!
Shannan Lerch: Four eliminations, VERY fast. This is crazy.
Zach Davis: And pure luck, honestly. D-Day deserved better than that.
Shannan Lerch: We're down to Hector and Greenfever and Slickie!
Zach Davis: No love lost between these three men, that's for sure.
Hector runs at the pair with a full head of steam. Slickie and Greenfever duck the clothesline attempt. Hector bounces off and is floored with a double arm drag and the crowd boos. Hector gets back up and is met with a pair of dropkicks from both men. Hector stumbles back and the crowd holds its breath, but luckily Hector falls through the top and middle rope, grabbing one of them and hoisting himself onto the apron. Slickie T leaps forward and hits an Omerta super kick and Hector is knocked off to the outside.
Zach Davis: Folks, note that this is NOT an elimination of Hector Rodriguez, he didn't initially go over the top rope.
Slickie T and Greenfever start brawling in the ring again as Stanley Moser walks over to Hector.
Shannan Lerch: Uh oh, we may have a confrontation here.
Hector stands up and starts to climb back in the ring again but Stanley Moser stops him and tells him to go to the back. The crowd immediately starts to boo as Stanley tells him he was thrown over the top rope and eliminated. Hector grabs Stanley by the shirt as JJ comes running around and starts arguing with Stanley.
Zach Davis: This is unfair even for Hector! He wasn't eliminated!
Shannan Lerch: Why does my brother hire this guy? He's more crooked than Hector and his friends!
Suddenly on the big screen, the moments where Hector fell through the top and middle ropes and then gets superkicked off are replaying on it over and over. JJ and Hector see this and try to get Stanley to turn around but he keeps saying no and points for Hector to leave. Finally the other referee starts walking over as the crowd is still booing like crazy. The referee also tries to get Stanley to look at the big screen. Finally, when he convinces him, Stanley turns around but it's just a big screen version of what's in the ring and he shrugs. The other referee tells him what happened, but Stanley says that's not what he saw.
There's a big crowd reaction and back in the ring Slickie is on the ropes, looking worn out when Greenfever runs across the ring at him. Slickie goes to the mat, pulling down the top rope. Greenfever can't get stopped in time and flips over the ropes to the outside. Stanley actually sees this and climbs into the ring and raises Slickie's hand as the bell rings. Hector is livid and the crowd grows restless. Hector climbs into the ring and starts arguing with Stanley again.
Kyle Steel: And the WINNER of this match....SLICKIE T!!!
Hector snaps and grabs Stanley Moser. Hector powerbombs him and jumps on him beating the hell out of him. Security comes running down to the ring, but they get quickly overwhelmed as some MS-13 members jump the railing and start brawling with them at ringside.
Shannan Lerch: Oh no! What are they doing??
Zach Davis: Slickie and Greenfever need to get out of there!
Slickie T and Greenfever see what's happening as more fans break through the barricades. The two men rush over to the ramp and barely escape to the back as more security and road agents come out from the back. The MS-13 members and other fans are trashing ringside. Fans who weren't even doing anything start getting attacked in the crowd. Some of the gang members make their way over to the announce booth.
Zach Davis: Oh shit, we need securi---hey get off me!
Shannan Lerch screams but security gets over there and starts brawling with the gang members long enough for Shannan and Zach Davis to get backstage. Ringside is completely filled up with people fighting at ringside. MS-13 members are fighting security, road agents, and other fans. A few people are rolled into the ring and soon the fighting has filled the ring, ringside area, out in the stands and slowly makes its way up the ramp.
Out from the back steps Seth Lerch with a few policemen dressed in riot gear. More and more riot squad members come out behind him and they form a wall on the ramp. Seth starts barking orders out and directing traffic, but he soon grows worried as there's thousands and thousands of MS-13 members in attendance. He turns to someone beside him and tells them to call for more help. Seth is looking around, surveying the carnage when he stops, looking at the ring.
Standing in the center of the ring, above everyone due to his height, unfazed by everything going on around him is Hector Rodriguez. Hector is staring directly at Seth Lerch. Both men lock onto each other. Hector just looks at Seth for a few seconds until a slightly sadistic grin moves across his face. Seth looks a little flustered as he finally looks away, sending out more orders to the policemen and security. Some of the road agents are being pulled in past the riot guards, bloody. The crowd starts to turn on the riot guard members and Seth takes a couple of steps back.
Seth looks back at the ring, where Hector still stands there, acting as if nothing is going on around him, still looking at Seth with a sadistic grin. The WCF logo appears as the screen splits in two: one half showing Hector's sadistic smile and the other showing Seth looking worried and sick at the same time. The show fades to black.
