World Title Match: Creeping Death vs Greenfever
Opposite of Adults by Chiddy Bang hits and Slam is on the air! The fans in Salem, Virginia hold up their signs and cheer as we go to our announcers.
Zach Davis: Zach Davis here, along with Shannan Lerch, and believe it or not... this is the 150th recorded Slam on record.
Shannan Lerch: We're actually pretty far above 150 since there were a whole bunch of Slams that we lost buutt.. whatever! Hooray!
Zach Davis: And to be honest, we have a stacked card. FOUR Title matches!
Shannan Lerch: With our main event being Creeping Death challenging for the World Title. Again. This guy must have the same infinite Title shot code that Batista has.
Zach Davis: Erm.. yeah. Anyway, it should be a GREAT match. Greenfever is obviously on top of his game, but Creeping Death has taken the World Title when no one suspected him to before. I think CD really will bring it tonight.
Shannan Lerch: Big Tag Team Titles rematch... the Cash Money Nightmares are taking on the Champs, the New Confederacy. It was the Nightmares that beat Torture and Creeping Death for those belts, so if they can manage to become two time Champions, you'd have to consider them one of the best teams in WCF history.
Zach Davis: Hardcore Title bout between Slickie T and Shaun Jackson. First one on one meeting between the two... and it promises to be hellacious. I get the feeling that Slickie T will take Jackson to hell and back to win back the Title.. and Jackson will do the same to retain it.
Shannan Lerch: And this isn't a Titles match but it is almost as important as one. KashVille will go two on two against Bishop and Priest. And if Bishop and Priest win... they're the new Tag Team Titles number one contenders.
Zach Davis: Big singles match between D-Day and Malachi Wanderlust. Wanderlust is stepping up in the world, getting some stiffer competition than the last two weeks. Lets see if he can handle it.
Shannan Lerch: Five wrestlers competing in our Television Title match.. Super Anime, Anastasia Petrova, Bobby Burn, Karl Voronov, and Ace Garrison. Can Garrison hold onto the belt with four other wrestlers involved!?
Zach Davis: We'll have to see, but the odds sure aren't in his favor.
Shannan Lerch: Well, actually, he has as much of a chance to end up with the belt as anyone else in the match, so-
Zach Davis: Anyway, our opener is Jaguar going one on one with Adam Young! Lets get to it!
Jaguar vs Adam Young
"Disposable Teens" by Marylyn Manson starts playing as the crowd jumps to its feet.
Fans: You are awesome!
Out steps Adam Young in a green Tapout t-shirt and jeans with Katie in a pink Tapout t-shirt and jeans.
Fans: You are awesome!
They start towards the ring followed by Austin Adams and Angus Killian with a man in a navy blue suit carrying paperwork in his hand. They all climb into the ring.
Fans: You are awesome!
Adam calls for a mic.
Adam Young: Brad Kane you and WCF have forced my hand. As of right now the WCF and Brad Kane are being sued by Adam Young and BTJ Incorporated. We gave you until the end of the show last Monday to strip the TV title from Ace Garrisson for not officially winning the championship by the rules stipulated by the WCF in my Dogpound match at Rebirth therefore there was no winner of the match between Ace, Doc and myself, but since Doc had been eliminated he has no claim on the championship at this time. My lawyer right here and Cole Young of the PAC have files suit on my behalf in the Pennsylvania Court system.
Lawyer: As of this moment a cease order has been issued and the WCF has been ordered to strip the TV title until a match up can be set up in the up coming weeks at WCF's next big show under rules the PAC see fit to inforce at that time. So by the end of the night Brad Kane you do need to accuire the TV title belt and hand it over to Seth Lerch who will secure that championship belt until said match takes place. If does not happen by the end of the show WCF and Brad Kane will then be ordered to pay Mr. Adam Young and BTJ Incorporated $4.5 million in compansastion for lost earnings.
Adam Young: Brad the balls in your court you sorry bastard and the whole future of WCF is on the line. As far as this so called match you have planned for tonight go screw yourself, I'm not wrestling nor are my boys going to wrestle until this match is signed or we get $4.5 million in cash. If I was you Kane I'd get that title right now from that wannabe chumpion and save the company and your job. I know Seth isn't going to be too happy with you right now kid. What the hell for our fans we'll destroy this pussy in the ring.
Austin and Angus jump on Jaguar. They nail the Snakecharmer on him almost knocking him out. Austin picks up Jaguar. The duo starts to nail a two man flapjack and Adam nails a Codebreaker as he is nearing the mat knocking Jaguar out cold.
Adam Young: Do something about!
The Big Time Jerks exit threw the crowd as WCF security attend to Jaguar as "Freebird" plays in the arena.
Super Anime vs Anastasia Petrova vs Bobby Burn vs Karl Voronov vs Ace Garrison
The Mortal Kombat theme begins to play while the crowd gets to their feet. Once "Fight" is said, Super Anime comes out from the back. She high fives most of the fans before heading into the ring. Super Anime then backs into a corner and waits.
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!
"Cudi Zone" by KiD CuDi begins, and the crowd all shift their collective heads in anticipation. As the lyrics begin, Bobby makes his way out from the back. Eyes bloodshot, head noddin, Bobby slaps hands with those in attendance. Before he gets to the ring, he blows smoke into a fans face. Bobby sings along with his entrance music and enters the ring, going to his corner to stretch before the match begins.
The Big Screen blares with a picture of a snowy forest as Karl walks to the stage cuing “Grace” - by Apocalyptica. With his approach to the ring, several large explosions occur on the stage. Once Karl has climbed into the ring he does his signature taunt which involves extending his arms and slowly clinching his fist all the while making a powerful expression. After he clinches his fist he roughly pounds the fist into his chest which accompanied by a large explosion above the ring.
"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, who are greeting him with boos! 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.
The match starts out with all out chaos, everyone brawling with everyone. Petrova and Anime are paired up, Burn and Voronov as well, and Garrison has backed off, watching the action.
Zach Davis: Ace Garrison isn't a stupid man. He's waiting to pick his spot.
Super Anime gets the advantage on Petrova, DDTing her to the mat! Right as Anime gets up is when Garrison springs into action, grabbing her from behind and hitting a Bulldog.
Shannan Lerch: Figures. He attacks a woman from behind. Great way to start the match, Ace.
Meanwhile, Voronov is beating on Burn. He hits him with a huge Belly to Belly, nearly sending him across the whole ring! Burn stumbles up and Voronov throws him to the ropes, executing a Powerslam as he comes back. Voronov then locks in an Armbar.
Zach Davis: Wearing down the competition, good strategy.
Ace is stomping away at Super Anime, but Petrova is up. She kicks Garrison square in the back of the head! Garrison stumbles back and Petrova grabs him from behind while Super Anime gets up... Anime starts kicking him while Petrova holds him!
Shannan Lerch: Looks like the ladies are teaming up! But probably not for long.
Petrova shoves Garrison away towards Anime, who hits him with a Neckbreaker. She drops down to pin him, but Petrova pulls her off immediately. Petrova then goes for an RKO but Super Anime shoves her away before hitting her with the Animeplex!
Zach Davis: We could have a new Television Champ!
But no! Voronov grabs Super Anime and hits her with a Belly to Belly too. He then beats on her for several more minutes while Garrison, Petrova and Burn are all recuperating outside. Burn gets up and slides in, Clotheslining both Voronov and Anime over the top.
Shannan Lerch: Burn alone in the ring now..
And Garrison gets back in as well... and locks Burn in the Final Clutch! Burn taps out immediately!
Zach Davis: Garrison retains!
Garrison clutches his Television Title and slides out of the ring, holding it closely to himself as he heads to the back.
Zach Davis: Well.. after what we saw with Adam Young, Garrison should definitely hold that Title close.. he COULD get stripped of it tonight!
D-Day vs Malachi Wanderlust
Give Me The Meltdown by Rob Thomas plays in the speakers. The lights are dim. The lights flash on to D-Day walking out to the top of the ramp and he 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. When D-Day get in the ring he raises his hands to his name on the screen.
The arena lights dim to black and then an intense white spotlight casts downward to the center of the ring, up the ramp to the center of the entrance stage as Broken, Beaten and Scarred by Metallica begins to play. About forty seconds into the song, with the first pause and drum transition, Wanderlust emerges from the backstage area dressed in all black gear, carrying a table alongside in one hand. His long black hair is slicked wet, and the music obviously pumps him up. At the top of the ramp, he stops for a moment and lets the music play while rousing up the fans in various unscripted ways: pumping his fist, banging his head, etc. At about the one minute mark, with the second drum transition, Wanderlust gives a cut-throat motion and spits a white cloud of mist upwards into the air, then there's a large burst of white pyro that signals him to head down the ramp towards the ring with the spotlight on him the whole way, sometimes slapping a few hands. As he's walking, the ring announcer performs his introduction. While outside the ring, Wanderlust kicks up the table and both of the legs fall out to the floor, an obvious sign that he’s done this before. Once more he makes the same cut-throat motion and then motions that he’s going to put his opponent through the table. When the lyrics begin at approximately a minute and fifteen seconds, he rocks his way between the top two ropes and heads directly towards one of the four corners to raise his fists into the air and pose for the audience to gawk or take pictures. At about two minutes and twenty seconds, Wanderlust stands ring-center and three bursts of white pyro spring from the ring-posts as the words "We die hard" ring out.
Kyle Steel: Standing to my left, he stands six feet, four inches tall and weighs in tonight at two-hundred and thirty pounds. This is D-Day! And standing to my right, he stands six feet and seven inches tall and weighs in tonight at three-hundred and thirteen pounds. This is “Murderer’s Row” Malachi Wanderlust!
Zach Davis: Interviews over. Introductions over. Let’s get this started. I’ve been waiting all week
Shannan Lerch: This should be the first real test for Wanderlust and a good opportunity for D-Day to tune up for his opportunity at the U.S. Title.
Wanderlust grins across the ring towards D-Day who sneers back and the two head right towards each other. D-Day takes advantage of Wanderlust trying to intimidate him by going for a test of strength and is able to land a stiff kick to Wanderlust’s gut, double him over, and wrap the big man up in a headlock.
Shannan Lerch: Wanderlust may be too much of a goon for his own good at times.
The headlock doesn’t last for long. Malachi shoves D-Day into the ropes and then meets him with a shoulder block that puts D-Day on the mat. Wanderlust stands there grinning, but pays the price when D-Day snaps off a kick to the back of Wanderlusts knee, spins around, takes a single-leg and brings Malachi down.
Zach Davis: Like you said, Shannan. D-Day is too good to mess around with.
D-Day is unable to follow up on the move due to his poor positioning and disadvantage in the strength department, but he did certainly prove the point that Malachi needs to stop messing around and posturing if he’s going to get a victory here. Both men get back to their feet and lock up. Wanderlust powers D-Day back into a corner and lays a loud chop across his chest, then backs away. The move seemingly pisses off the number one contender who bolts out of the corner and tackles Wanderlust taking him down again. D-Day swings wildly with both lefts and rights while Wanderlust covers up with his forearms.
Zach Davis: You called it, and now D-Day is making him pay.
Once again though, D-Day’s advantage is short-lived and Wanderlust uses his size and strength to roll on top of D-Day and start battering him with a few fists of his own. The referee comes and threatens a disqualification, which stops Wanderlust’s attack and brings both men to their feet again. This time, when the two lock up, Wanderlust takes control and whips D-Day into the ropes. D-Day ducks a lariat, then dives between Wanderlust’s legs. Finally, as the big man is turning around, D-Day kicks him square in the mush and Wanderlust falls to the canvas like a sack of potatoes.
Shannan Lerch: You think that got the point across?
Zach Davis: I hope so, because if it takes much more, Wanderlust is going to be missing teeth.
A big smile spreads across the lips of D-Day and he gives Wanderlust a tap on the toe to make sure the big man is sleeping like a baby. Rather than go for a cover, D-Day seems to catch sight of the table placed by Wanderlust outside the ring, hops out, and brings the table inside. D-Day goes to whip Wanderlust into the ropes, but Wanderlust reverses it and goes for a clothesline, which he then floats over the top of and DDTs Wanderlust through his own table.
Zach Davis: Wanderlust would be pissed if he were away. Here’s the count.
Shannan Lerch: No?
Zach Davis: No!
The crowd pops with excitement when the table snaps in half and lets out a collective “Oh!” when the count fails to reach three. A frustrated D-Day stares at the referee in shock while a dazed Wanderlust staggers up to his feet and backs into the corner for support. After a bit of a dispute with the official, D-Day comes gunning in for a spear, but Wanderlust catches him and spikes him down onto the mat with a spinebuster.
Zach Davis: What a turn of events! D-Day is down.
Wanderlust seems to get a second wind and motions that he is going to powerbomb D-Day, but before doing so, he steps out of the ring himself and finds a second table beneath the ring.
Shannan Lerch: Another one? Is this even wrestling?
Zach Davis: I believe this is what they refer to as hardcore. The fans love it though.
Once more, the crowd pops at the sight of a second table, which Wanderlust sets up outside of the ring, trying to get back inside quick before D-Day regains his full senses. He quickly slips under the bottom rope and then turns D-Day inside out with a lariat.
Shannan Lerch: This guy is vicious when he’s not thinking about tables.
Zach Davis: Every guy is focused on getting wood, Shannan. Some just more than others.
Before D-Day has time to recover, Wanderlust brings him back to his feet and places him, sitting, on the top turnbuckle. Wanderlust climbs up on top along with him and then the two wrestlers come crashing thunderously down to the canvas, a super sitout powerbomb. The referee starts the count.
Zach Davis: Holy… No?
Shannan Lerch: No!
Wanderlust gives the referee the exact same look that D-Day only minutes earlier before he takes D-Day by the hair and shoves him into the corner and starts to choke him out using a boot high up along the throat. The ref counts to four before Wanderlust releases the hold and D-Day collapses once again. From there, Wanderlust whips D-Day into the ropes, catches him as he returns, ducks D-Day’s head in position for the Lethal Injection, and lifts him up into the air and hits it!
Zach Davis: Is this it!?
Wanderlust pins D-Day, hooking the leg.
Shannan Lerch: Wanderlust wins!
Zach Davis: His biggest win in WCF to date!
After the bell has wrung, Wanderlust raises his fist up into the air proudly, but the physicality isn’t over yet. He motions to the crowd that he’s going to send D-Day over the top rope and through the table. Then, within a few moments, he’s lifting D-Day up, carried him to the ropes, and finally plunged him over the top and down through the wooden table below. D-Day lays there for some time, collecting his faculties while Wanderlust requests a microphone. Finally, referees escort D-Day to the back while Wanderlust begins a promo, breathing heavily.
Malachi Wanderlust: Did you see that? Number one contender to the U.S. title. Fort Knox! I know you can hear me. You didn’t say a word all week, Knox. You’re not ducking me, are you? I saw what you did to Cryboy McEmo last week, Knox. I hope you saw what I just did tonight, because I’m issuing you a challenge. Nobody comes out on television and upstages me. So, I’m going to make you pay for that. I don’t care if it’s at Ultimate Showdown or next week on Slam… or even six months from now. I’m challenging you to a special kind of match. Last man standing with tables legal. Then we’ll see if you’re brave enough to put anyone else through a table and upstage Murderer’s Row again.
Broken Beaten and Scarred cranks up and Wanderlust wipes some of the sweat off of his forehead with the tape around his wrist before tossing the microphone back outside of the ring. He steps between the ropes and heads back up the ramp to the locker rooms for a shower.
Seth Lerch/Brad Kane Segment
Seth is backstage, and there is a knock. Brad Kane comes in.
Seth Lerch: Yo.
Brad Kane: So.. this whole Television Title situation...
Seth Lerch: Yeah, I saw. The Big Time Jerks think they're going to force my hand and strip Ace of the Title? Not likely.
Brad Kane: So what're you gonna do? Fire them?
Seth Lerch: Nah. They're cocky little scamps, and I like their moxy.
Brad Kane: ...
Seth Lerch: So I'm going to compromise. I WILL give Adam Young a rematch for the Television Title at Ultimate Showdown. However, I'm ALSO going to put Jaguar into the match, after what happened earlier tonight. Adam Young, Jaguar, and Ace Garrison. Sounds good to me.
Brad Kane: What about the lawsuit?
Seth Lerch: Eh, we'll just see. They've got their match, so if they want to play hardball... I'll play just as hard as they do.
Brad giggles to himself after what Seth just said.
Seth Lerch: HEY! STOP THAT! GET OUT OF MY OFFICE!
Brad leaves, leaving Seth annoyed.
KashVille vs Bishop/Priest
Tag Team Titles Shot On The Line
"Influence" by: Trapt plays as Jason Kash and Tommy Knoxville appear from behind the Entrance curtain. The fans giving a mixed reaction get their attention as they throw up the Influential Minds handsign. They stroll down to the ring, Knoxville sliding into the ring as Kash jogs up the steel stairs. They taunt some more and prepare for battle.
"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: Whoever wins this match will face either the New Confederacy or the Cash Money Nightmares at Ultimate Showdown.. this could be interesting.
Bishop and Kash start the match. Kash goes for some strikes, but Bishop shrugs them off and pushes Kash away. Bishop then throws Kash to the ropes and hits a Powerslam!
Shannan Lerch: Bishop and Priest are HUGE men. Not easy to get the upper hand on them, that's for sure.
For the next several minutes, Bishop continues using his power to beat down Jason Kash. He hits him with a huge Big Boot. He then goes for a Powerbomb..
Zach Davis: Not looking good for Jason Kash!
But Knoxville gets into the ring and chop blocks Bishop's leg! Bishop's leg buckles and he isn't able to Powerbomb Kash. Kash and Knoxville hit him with the Up and Under!
Shannan Lerch: All of a sudden, KashVille is back in this match!
Kash pins Bishop!
No, Bishop kicks out. Knoxville has returned to his corner on the apron. Kash picks Bishop up but Bishop shoves him away again and tags in Priest. Kash tags in Knoxville.
Zach Davis: Well, back to square one for both teams, as fresh men are coming in.
Knoxville runs at Priest but Priest hits him with a Headbutt, sending him down. Knoxville gets up and Priest hits him with a European Uppercut before grabbing his throat and lifting him up for a Chokeslam!
Shannan Lerch: What power!
Priest pins Knoxville.
Kash breaks it up! Kash picks him up and he and Knoxville quickly hit the Up and Under once more!
Zach Davis: Nice double teaming!
Quickly, Knoxville jumps to the top rope... and flies down onto Priest with the Iron Curtain!
Shannan Lerch: Thats it! KashVille gets the win!
As the match comes to an end "Trapt" begins to play as KashVille raises the briefcase yet again, showing the world that they are still the #1 Contenders to the Tag Team Championships. Suddenly the music is cut off and "Renegade" by Styx begins to play over the PA system as Johnny Reb and Doc Henry step out onto the stage. Knoxville and Kash end their celebration in the ring and watch as Doc Henry holds a mic in one hand and the handle of a briefcase in his other. Johnny Reb stands next to him with one half of the WCF Tag Titles sitting over his shoulder.
Doc Henry: Congratulations on the win tonight guys!
The crowd cheers in agreement on the entertaining match. They quickly quiet down as Doc Henry puts the mic back to his mouth and continues to say what he came out to say.
Doc Henry: Knoxville. I didn't come out here to just congratulate you guys though. I came out here because I haven't heard from you all week. A man lays down an offer on the table that can clear up all of your debts in one shot plus more and you've yet to respond to that? So let me ask you one last time...This briefcase here has enough money to cover all of your debt owed to whatever Bookies and Loan Sharks you owe money too. It also holds about 260,000 dollars extra for your own use just as a gift from the Tag Team Champions! Now if you accept this case full of money you will not be allowed to compete in that ring or any WCF ring until the PPV when KashVille WILL lose to The New Confederancy! Do you accept my offer Knoxville?
The crowd chants "Accept It" partly wanting to see what hell Jason Kash would be put through during the time Knoxville would be away and partly because people or WCF fans generally dislike Kash and Knoxville but respect their talents. All of this makes for an entertaining night as the crowd grows into very loud chants for the upcoming PPV event. Knoxville grabs a microphone from the Announcer on the outside of the ring and steps up to the ropes where the Tag Champions are closet too.
Tommy Knoxville: After talking this over with Kash here I've decided to accept your offer. I would love to get rid of all my problems and being away from the ring gives me plenty of time to get my shit straight. Hey, Announcer guy! Go and get that shit from him now!
The announcer stumbles and begins jogging up the entrance ramp. He steps up to Doc Henry and he reluctantly hands the Announcer the briefcase of money. The Announcer turns around and runs back down the aisle way and slides into the ring with the suitcase. Knoxville picks it up and spins around, it lands in Kash's arms. Knoxville opens the suitcase and looks at the stacked 100 bills that fill the case. He shuts it and smiles, looking back towards Doc Henry and Johnny Reb.
Tommy Knoxville: Well I do appreciate this Doc! You see when I leave this ring tonight I will live by the rules and stay away from the ring. I won't compete in a single match until the PPV comes but remember this...I will put all my issues, all my troubles behind me with this money. I will come back at the PPV and I will be well prepared for that match. I will be in that match and for the first time in YEARS I will be focused on just the match. Nothing else will cloud my head, nothing will be sitting at the back of my mind. Those Titles will be my only concern when I pay off these debts so you prepare for that. Before you go though....I figured that by me taking this money that you'll have a world of fun picking Kash here apart with uneven odds wouldn't you?
The audience begins laughing, knowing that KashVille had fallen for the obvious plan. They shown their enjoyment in knowing Jason Kash will become an easier target now that his partner is going to be banned from the ring now.
Tommy Knoxville: The thing is...You made a mistake by giving me a handful of extra dough! Since Kash and I first got together and reformed the old friendship the name Influential Minds have been heard being discussed. For about 3 weeks we've been going over names, old faces and new ones in order to find someone who would fit perfectly with this right here (Points at Kash and then himself) and with this money that you've given me, we've decided to hand some of it over to someone who much like us has been dominating since his arrival. Someone who will no doubt become a Champion here in WCF and a dominating one at that! This man is a beast and he's proven that in the few short weeks he's been here. Most have watched him HOPING that your name wasn't the next one booked against him....Now, this man will become Influential....This man will become the 3rd Member of Influential Minds but while I'm gone, while I am "banned" from competition he will be the Insurance Policy that keeps my partner here with even odds in his corner. I can't let you guys tear him apart, without Kash there is no KashVille, there is no Influential Minds!! The wait is over people...Please welcome our Insurance Policy and the newest member of the Brotherhood we call Influential Minds....The 6 FOOT 7 INCHES, 3 HUNDRED AND 13 POUND...."Murderer's Row" Malachi Wanderlust!!!
"Broken, Beaten and Scarred" by Metallica begins to play as the crowd spreads open and Malachi steps over the Guard Railing. He jumps up onto the ringside apron and steps through the ropes. Kash meets with Malachi and they slap hands and give a tough man hug. Malachi does the same with Knoxville as Doc Henry and Johnny Reb stand at the entrance stage pissed off about their recent investment. The arena is on their feet cheering, screaming, and booing in a loud, very loud mixed reaction and surprise. Jason Kash now holding two briefcases tosses the one with money in it to Knoxville as all three men throw up 3 fingers in salute to Influential Minds, the new force that WCF will soon feel the full force of.
Slickie T vs Shaun Jackson
Zach Davis: Up next we have a rematch from Rebirth as Slickie T looks to reclaim the Hardcore Title from Shaun Jackson.
Shannan Lerch: Jackson pulled off the major upset but has yet to defend the title since. Let's see if he has what it takes to pull off another shocker or if Slickie T will show the rookie why he's one of the best in the business.
Psychosocial hits as Jackson walks out from behind the curtain to a sea of cheers from the crowd. He pauses for a second as he looks around at the crowd, and then he sets off down the ramp toward the ring, occasionally taking the time to slap a few hands. He then slides into the ring under the bottom rope and stand in the center as he takes off his beanie and t-shirt and throws them into the crowd before handing the Hardcore Title off to the referee.
Zach Davis: And here is the Hardcore Champion, and Shannan as of late it seems as though he's been troubled by an unknown person.
Shannan Lerch: Yes it seems as though someone is intent on making his life miserable, going as far as attacking him last week and costing his team a chance at a win. One has to wonder how he's doing coming into this contest, both physically and mentally.
"Gravesend (Lake of Fire)" plays over the speakers as Slickie makes his way through the black curtain, turning his back to the crowd and making his famous "T" symbol with outstretched arms. Once the words to the song begin, he quickly turns and looks over the crowd, giving a smirk before making his way down the ramp, extending his hand to those that are already outstretched. Once reaching the ring, he stands on the ring apron, using the top rope to vault himself into the center of the ring. He then climbs the turnbuckle and outstretches his arms to form a "T" once again before doing a back flip into the center of the ring as he waits for the opening bell.
Zach Davis: Well Shaun had better have his head in the right mindset or Slickie T will make him pay. The former Hardcore Champion has been looking for his chance to regain the belt and you can expect him to bring nothing short of his A-Game.
Shannan Lerch: Well enough of all this talking, let's get this match started!
As both wrestlers await the bell, the referee instead motions to the back. Several security guards come out from the back and surround the ring as well as block off the entrance ramp.
Zach Davis: Well it seems as though Seth wants to make sure that his wrestlers stay safe.
Shannan Lerch: But this is a Hardcore Match. There are no rules.
Zach Davis: Yes, but he wants to make sure they're safe from certain outsiders, not from each other.
Shannan Lerch: Still doesn't make sense to me, but oh well. Let's get this match underway.
Zach Davis: The referee signals for the bell as Slickie and Jackson circle each other in the ring. They both move in and tie up. Im surprised to see Slickie going right at Jackson like this with the size difference not in his favor.
Shannan Lerch: Slickie's a true competitor, you know as well as I do that he won't back down from anyone or anything.
Zach Davis: That's true. And Jackson now taking control as he twists Slickie's arm behind his back and puts pressure on the elbow. Slickie fights back with an elbow and then reverses the hold as he now has Jackson's arm behind him.
Shannan Lerch: But Jackson twists out of it and he whips Slickie into the ropes. Slickie comes back and Jackson goes for a lariat but Slickie ducks it. Now they're trading shots as Slickie holds his own against the big man.
Zach Davis: And you can see from the look on Jackson's face that he was not expecting this kind of offense from the normally high flying Slickie T.
Shannan Lerch: I don't think a lot of people expec..
A commotion from the crowd causes Shannan to stop mid sentence.
Shannan Lerch: Oh not this again!
The fan dressed in all black with a clown mask over his face is running through the crowd toward the barricade. All the security at ringside spots him early and they move in to cut him off. The fan doesn't slow down, hopping up onto the barricade and jumping off with a cross body block that knocks down several of the guards. The fan then gets up and runs toward the ramp, dodging several guards in the process. The fan disappears somewhere out of the cameras view as all of the security personnel follow him. Jackson and Slickie both look annoyed at the disruption as the referee shrugs his shoulders.
Zach Davis: That was..odd.
Jackson and Slickie resume the match, locking back up in the center of the ring. Neither notice as the ring apron is lifted up from underneath. Another person wearing a clown mask slips out from under the ring with a chair in hand and hides at ringside. The crowd is going nuts trying to let Jackson and Slickie know whats going on but neither notice as they are focused on the match. On the opposite side of the ring a third person wearing a clown mask slips out from under the ring with a chair in hand. The first of the stand up at ringside as Jackson and Slickie finally notice his presence. They release the tie up and move to ringside, both livid at the appearance of him. With their backs turned the other person slides into the ring behind them, chair in hand. They run up behind Jackson and swing the chair, connecting with his back. Jackson drops to the mat as Slickie turns around, only to be met with a chair shot to the head. The other person joins his accomplice in the ring and the pair begin to violently attack both wrestlers as the referee has no choice but to call for the bell. The two then take out the referee before going back to work on Jackson and Slickie.
Shannan Lerch: Where is security? We need help out here!
Zach Davis: Shannan we just saw security run after one of these clown masked men. There is no help.
Members of the production crew come running to the ring along with some of the other referees but the two keep them at bay with the chairs in their hands. Jackson tries to sit up, blood dripping from his head, but he's hit again in the head with a chair shot and knocked to the mat. The two masked men then throw their chairs at the crowd of officials and run from the ring and through the crowd as they make their escape. Rather than chase them the officials instead get in the ring to check on Slickie and Jackson.
The camera shot switches to backstage where WCF security is searching the parking lot for the first of the masked men. The two others come into view as they head for a black van. The back door is thrown open and they dive inside as the van screeches off, leaving the security in it's dust. The camera switches back into the arena where medical personnel is now attending to Jackson and Slickie.
Shannan Lerch: I don't know what to make of all this anymore. Someone is obviously trying to make a statement but the question is, why Jackson?
Zach Davis: I'm not sure Shannan, but this is getting out of hand. We can't keep having our wrestlers being attacked. Something needs done and soon.
Black Mask Segment
The show re-opens in what looks like the boiler room. Its almost pitch black, just 1 light seen in the distance.
Moving closer to the light we see a man, tied to a chair, a look a terror in his eyes and we can soon see why.
Infront of the man is a crucifix.. strapped to the crucifix is Steve Thunder. His body is weak, cuts and bruises all over, he is limp and motionless. The man in the chair is Hank Brown.
Hank Brown: STEVE!! WAKE UP!! COME ON!!
The screams of terror in Hanks voice do nothing to awaken the fallen champion. The two are surrounded by the Black Masks and the Hooded Man stands front and center.
Hank Brown: Who the hell are you people?! What do you want with us?!
No response. A moment later the Hooded Man gives a quick nod to one of the Black Masks and he steps from the crowd.
Black Mask: Is this what you would call a 'champion'? Is this the man from which you expect great thing? Is the broken body in front of you the same man that you expect a rescue?
Hank Brown lowers his head, perhaps saying a prayer in fear of what may come next.
Black Mask: This man has done nothing in aid of your cause, he has watched idly by as we have tormented the WCF and its stars..
Hank Brown: That man is helpless; helpless because of YOU!
A Black Mask steps from behind Hank and puts his hand over his mouth, silencing him.
Black Mask: He is not a hero; he is not a champion - he is a failure to his purpose. This man is the reason we are here, he is to blame for the devastation we have caused.. if not for his indiscretions then none of this would have happened.. You have your precious 'champion' to thank for all of this..
The Black Mask steps back into the crowd as a nod from the Hooded Man directs. Two Black Masks take a side each of the crucifix and drag it away from Hank with Thunder still strapped to it.
As they get far enough away the rest of the Black Masks follow, un-tying Hank they push him to the ground and leave him to find his way out.

El Angel Oscuro: Johnny Reb has mentioned that if we spent as much time scouting matches, as we ran our mouths, we would know how Johnny Reb takes high risks.

Shannan Lerch: That was sure.... entertaining.
The arena turns black. Gold dollar signs flash about the arena. There is a red glow, as red lights illuminate the arena. Aspyxiated by Crimson Thorn begin to echo throughout the arena. The slamming drums, throbbing bass, and the thrashing guitars take over all sound, within the arena. The Dark Angel and Fort Knox comes up from a hole in the stage, that is surrounded with golden fireworks. El Angel Oscuro and Fort Knox hold out their arms, with fists clinched. As red lazers flash with the slamming drums, two bright continuous white pyro explosions explode on both sides of Fort Knox and The Dark Angel. As gold sparkling pyro set off behind them, the two jump up and land with red pyro explosion. They begin to slowly walk down the aisle.

Johnny Reb and Doc Henry step out onto the stage. Images of past matches play on the Jumbo tron, while both men make 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.

Seth Lerch Segment
Shannan Lerch: I'm getting word from backstage that one of our cameramen is witnessing something rather odd going on. Let's take it to the back for a look of our own.
The camera feed switches to the backstage area where Seth Lerch's "office space" is set up. The cameraman gives the audience of a shot of a man dressed in all black with a hood pulled up over his head despite the unbearable heat in the building already.
Zach Davis: What exactly is so odd about all of this?
Shannan Lerch: Well according to the cameraman, this individual has been standing in that spot for the last twenty minutes as he repeatedly demanded for Seth Lerch to answer the door. But it seems that Seth isn't inside, and despite being told so, this person will not leave.
At that moment the cameraman steps forward and places a hand on the back of the individuals shoulder.
Cameraman: Excuse me, but Mr. Lerch still isn't in yet. I've already told you that he's taking care of other business at the mo...
The individual spins around and smashes the cameraman in the face with his elbow, knocking him and the camera to the ground. He then turns back to the door and runs at it, kicking it open in the process. The camera continues to roll, albeit it's odd angle from its side and on the ground. The individual walks into the room and, although the camera can't see everything that they are doing, sounds of objects breaking and glass shattering are heard. This goes on for several minutes until the individual emerges from the room, giving the camera and the audience only a brief view of the black ski mask that hides their face under the hood. Once he's out of sight the cameraman gets up from the ground and carries his camera into the "office". Seth's desk is overturned and papers are lying all over the floor. Several picture frames that were hanging on the walls are lying on the ground with the glass shattered. Various holes litter the drywall, some looking like they were done by hand and others by foot. Plants have been pulled up from the dirt and thrown from their pots, leaving leaves scattered about. Lastly, displayed on the wall behind where the desk once set, is a large, crudely drawn winking smiley face done in red paint which is still dripping.
The camera shot switches back to a view of Zach and Shannan at the announce table, both with looks of shock on their faces.
Shannan Lerch: What is this? Who was that?
Zach Davis: Apparently someone is not happy with Seth Lerch, but the problem is that the list of his enemies is as long as the list of wrestlers that you've slept with.
Shannan Lerch: Real classy, Zach. Real classy.
Zach Davis: Thanks, I thought the same thing. But yes this does raise the questions, who and why.
The camera shot once again switches backstage as Seth Lerch is seen walking up to his office door as the cameraman views his reaction.
Seth Lerch: ...What the hell is this!?
Seth walks into the office and surveys the damage, a look of disbelief on his face. He walks over to his cd player and opens up the top.
Seth Lerch: My Sugar Ray Greatest Hits CD!?!
At that moment Seth realizes that the cameraman is still rolling with the live feed.
Seth Lerch: ...sigh.
Creeping Death vs Greenfever
The crowd near the announcers desk begin to scream and point. Zach and Shannan do not see some Gathering member slither and sneak around them. The crowd begin to scream out loud and try to get the announce team their attention. Two Gathering members slither near Zach Davis.
Shannan Lerch: Zach?
Zach Davis: Yes?
Shannan Lerch: I don't want to startle you, but you have a couple of visitors.
Zach looks around. With each turn he just misses a Gathering member looking at him. But, he just turns at the right moment and comes nose to nose with an ugly and scary Gathering member.
Zach Davis: AHH-H-H-HH! WHAT THE F<bleep>K?!?!?
The Gathering members begin to pet on Zach, as they comb through his hair with their filthy fingers. Zach begins to scream out as he tries to leave his seat. The two Gathering member begin to hang on Zach, as they continue to lick him.
Zach Davis: Get them off!! Get them off!! Someone please, get them off!!
Zach Davis begins to flail his arms around, as the two Gathering members continue to hang on. Zach struggles to stand, as he falls down to one knee, as he continues to scream out. He stumbles up the ramp, with the Gathering member screeching and moaning at Zach Davis.
The lights in the venue suddenly cut to black as the familiar opening to "For Whom the Bell Tolls" plays. The crowd is jacked up and gets louder after every toll. After six tolls, there is silence. Then, the intro for "Blood and a Siren" by Index Case plays. After the little guitar intro, when the song gets intense, a spotlight hits the curtain and Creeping Death emerges, wearing a black hoodie with the hood up. He headbangs with the crowd as they throw up the devil horns, and he does the same back to them on his way to the ring. CD enters the ring by sliding in through the bottom rope. Inside, he walks to the far corner, leaps up and takes a seat on the top rope, awaiting the match to begin.
Shannan Lerch: Well here comes Creeping Death, the challenger. I do not like him.
The lights drop as "Run Rabbit Run" by Rob Zombie begins over the P.A. system. "Huntin' Humans? Ain't nuthin but nuthin'.They all run like scared little rabbits.Run rabbit run. RUN RABBIT RUN!" The aggressive drums kick in and Greenfever emerges from the darkness. His face and hands are smeared with blood. The crowd is incited into a screaming mob. The audience begins to throwing garbage down at him as he makes his way to the ring.
Shannan Lerch: And here... is Greenfever.
The bell sounds. Creeping Death runs at Greenfever, but Greenfever sidesteps him and tosses him out of the ring. Greenfever quickly slides out after him and rushes him, hitting knee after knee into Creeping Death's gut.
Shannan Lerch: Greenfever is vicious tonight.
Greenfever then throws Creeping Death into the ringsteps, and he hits with a THUD. Greenfever, without thinking twice, grabs a chair and simply throws it at CD, hitting him right in the head. The bell rings.
Shannan Lerch: What!? Greenfever has gotten DQed already!?
Greenfever picks the chair back up and whacks Creeping Death right in the face with it, sending CD flying back against the announcer's table. Greenfever climbs up onto the table with him.
Shannan Lerch: AHH! My poor Spanish compadres!
Spanish Announce Team: Ayyy dios mio, no me gusta!
Greenfever hits the Dislocated Piledriver on Creeping Death, sending him through the announcer's table! The fans boo Greenfever mercilessly as he stands up.
Shannan Lerch: What.. what was the POINT of that? What is Greenfever thinking?
Greenfever climbs into the ring, and grabs his World Title belt from the ref. He stands in the middle of the ring, holding it high in the air, smirking.
Shannan Lerch: What a disgusting display...
The crowd screams as Gathering member crawl from under the ring and stand on the ring apron. This pisses off both Creeping Death and Greenfever. They both charge at The Gathering, but the little creepy things jump down from the apron. With their backs turned, the crowd erupts with deafening cheers. Both Creeping Death and Greenfever don't see Oblivion enter the ring, with a chair in hand.
Shannan Lerch: Oh my God! Oblivion is here!! Zach should be here!!
At that point, Zach stumbles out with his shirt shredded and his face slightly lacerated. As he struggles to stagger down the ramp, The Gathering start to approach Zach Davis. Zach begins to scream, as the creepy things begin to chase Zach to the backstage. The cameras catch The Gathering chasing Zach Davis backstage and down the halls.
Shannan Lerch: Oh well, I guess Zach has his hands full.
Greenfever sees Oblivion and charges at him....
Oblivion clobbers Greenfever with a metal chair. Oblivion quickly picks up Greenfever and nails him with a quick ddt! Creeping Death turns and slowly approaches Oblivion. Creeping Death is very hesitant towards a chair wielding Oblivion. Greenfever begins to stand up, near Creeping Death. Greenfever begins to stand and Oblivion begins to swing the chair...
Oblivion: I'm sorry!! Nothing personal!! You're just in the way!!
Shannan Lerch: What?!?!?
Crowd: HOLY SH[bleep]T!!
Shannan Lerch: Oblivion just nailed Creeping Death with a chair!!
Oblivion runs over to Greenfever and begins to tie him up in the ropes. With Greenfever tied up in the top and middle ringrope, Oblivion begins to whack Greenfever with the chair.
Shannan Lerch: Oh my God!! Greenfever's face is covered in his own blood!
Oblivion grabs Greenfever's face with his right hand and begins to scream at Greenfever.
Oblivion: Do you get it, now?!?! Do you get it, now?!?! I told you a long time ago, I wasn't finished with you!! You have the World Heavyweight Championship. Call that a bonus!! I won't be happy until I put you in the hospital.... PERMANENTLY!!! You're a dead man!! You hear me, Greenfever?!?! A DEAD MAN!!!
Oblivion begins to clobber Greenfever with a closed right fist, several times to his bleeding head. Oblivion leaves the ring and begins to look under the ring. Oblivion smiles, as he finds a small loop of barbed wire. Oblivion takes the loop in the ring and he begins to rake the barbed wire across the forehead of Greenfever. Oblivion places the small loop of barbed wire around the head of Greenfever. Blood covers the head and face of Greenfever.
Shannan Lerch: This is totally shocking!!
The crowd screams as a bleeding Creeping Death begin to stumble at Oblivion with a chair, of his own, in his hands. Creeping Death swings the chair in vain, as it misses Oblivion by a mile. Oblivion just smiles at his handy work and leaves the ring. He walks up the entrance ramp, backwards as Paramedics begin to charge down the ramp with a couple of gurneys and medical equipment. In the name of God by Slayer begins to play. Most of the crowd is cheering for Oblivion, while the Oblivion haters are throwing empty cups and trash at Oblivion. At the entrance are, of the ramp, Oblivion holds up his arms as the rest of The Society come out and the pose of the flashing cameras. The Gathering finally slither out. As The ENTIRE Society poses, The Gathering slithers around...
