"Hm. Maybe next week."
Zach Davis: What the hell was that!? That damn voice again...
New Confederacy Segment
The jumbotron displays an image of the locker room, where the New Confederacy are gathered. Dixie Pride and Doc’s wife, Mary, sit huddled on a bench, whispering to one another as they glance up from time to time; Don Jesus Luis de Guadalupe paces the floor off to one side, muttering to himself; and Johnny Reb and Doc Henry stand facing one another, already in the midst of a heated debate.
Johnny Reb: C’mon, Doc. Be reasonable…
Doc Henry: Reasonable?! You’re the one that let me get powerbombed off the top of the damn cage!
Reb sighs heavily.
Johnny Reb: I already told ya. I didn’t let nothin’ happen.
Doc Henry: You saw me goin’ up!
Johnny Reb: I didn’t know what –
Doc Henry: We coulda both been outta that cage an’ STILL be reignin’ tag team champions!
Johnny Reb: Yeah, but –
Doc Henry: But NOTHIN’! You just… stood there, like a goddamned moron! I swear, Johnny… you’re about as much use as a screen door on a submarine!
Reb just stands there for a moment, gazing at his partner with a hurt expression on his face. Henry ignores it, continuing his tirade.
Doc Henry: Now we ain’t got no titles, an’ it’s all YOUR fault!
Johnny Reb: So, we’ll just tell Lerch we want a rematch… We can win ‘em back…
Doc Henry: Can we? The last time this happened, you went an’ disappeared for two months!
Don Jesus stops pacing and decides to intervene.
Don Jesus: Bernardo, calm yourself. We must –
Henry slams a fist into the side of a locker in frustration, making the girls jump and leaving a sizeable dent in the metal.
Doc Henry: And you! You just keep your damn mouth shut, Chuy! If I was the least bit interested in your sorry brand of mysticism, I’d go to the damn flea market an’ get my cards read… maybe by somebody who wouldn’t call me “Bernardo” all the damn time!
Now it’s Chuy’s turn to look affronted. Johnny walks over and rests a hand on Doc’s shoulder.
Johnny Reb: It ain’t that big a deal… We’ll get the titles back, you’ll see…
Henry shrugs Reb’s hand off violently and turns to glower at his partner; and when he speaks, his voice is low and dangerous.
Doc Henry: It ain’t about that, Johnny. Not now. I don’t even know if I can work with you anymore…
With that, Doc Henry stalks out of the locker room, leaving Reb and Chuy to stare after him in disbelief.
Karl Voronov vs Doc Henry
Zach Davis: Now here is the first match of this evening. And it should be a very exciting one at that.
Shannan Lerch: Yes tonight starting of this edition of Slam is the powerhouse Karl Voronov and the Confederate Doc Henry. Speaking of those two men here comes one of them now!
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.
Zach Davis: There is the powerhouse Karl for you always showing his dominance in the ring by not just having his hand raised but also by his confidence. And here comes the Confederate!

Shannan Lerch: Now that our contestants are in the ring lets get this thing started.
The two men circle each other as the ring bell rings to start off the match. Karl gets the upper hand quickly as he pounds a combination of punches to the gut of Doc Henry. Doc holds his stomach in pain as Karl lays on the ropes in front of Doc waiting for him to stand straight up. Doc finally stands up and is met by a devastating big boot by Voronov. Voronov goes for the quick victory.
Shannan Lerch: This could be a very quick victory for Karl.
And a kickout!
Zach Davis: I knew that Doc couldn't go down that quickly.
Karl goes for another big boot but Doc is ready for it and ducks under the foot of Karl. Doc then swiftly turns and kicks Karl straight in his right legs hamstring, this kick sends Karl immediately to his knees. Doc then unloads a series of punches and kicks to the body of Voronov. Voronov fights the pain in his hamstring and gets buck to his feet once again. Doc then kicks him straight in his hamstring once again sending him to the ground. Doc then starts to cheer for himself before he is interrupted by the booing of the crowd.
Doc turns around and is hit by a hard clothesline by the arm of Voronov. He then picks up Doc and hits a powerful suplex. Doc screams in pain. Voronov picks up Doc by the head once again but hita a powerful powerbomb. He goes for the swift pin.
No, a kickout.
Shannan Lerch: How did Doc kick out of that powerbomb?
Zach Davis: Shannan, these men don't give up by just getting punched once or anything, these men put their careers on the line just to earn their daily pay.
As Shannan and Zach are talking to each other Karl chants to the crowd before going for the big boot on the staging Doc against the ropes. Doc moves to the side causing Karl's leg to get caught on the top rope. Doc then takes advantage of the situation and kicks the hamstring of Karls once again. And continues to punch his leg and his body, causing Karl to fall to the mat. Doc then picks up Karl and flexes his muscles before attempting a suplex on Karl. Doc yanks on Karl but he doesn't move an inch. Karl then returns the favor by attempting to suplex Doc Henry, but the injury on his hamstring causes him to drop Doc back on his feet. Doc then hits a DDT and goes for a pin.
but a kick out by Karl.
Doc then climbs the turnbuckle waiting for Karl to get up. Karl gets to his feet and is met with a diving spear. Karl hits the mat hard. Doc gets up and climbs the turnbuckle once again but this time to taunt Karl and to yell at the crowd. Karl gets up limping Doc jumps down from the turnbuckle and begins to run at Karl trying for a clothesline but Doc made a mistake and is hit with a clothesline by Karl.
Zach Davis: Karl is back in charge of this match.
Shannan Lerch: But Doc has impressed many of us here tonight.
Karl leans against the top rope on one side holding his hamstring from the brutal attacks from Foc earlier on in the match. Doc is struggling to get back up on the other side of the ring. The two men look at each other before doing anything other than trying to regain their footing... and the bell rings.
Zach Davis: What the?
"Time limit draw. Sorry fellows, neither of you could get the job done in a reasonable amount of time. This match has been absolute tripe. I may not have any kind of real authority but I'm declaring we transition to a commercial break at this point in time. Good day."
Creeping Death vs Malachi Wanderlust
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..
..but CD has a microphone.
Creeping Death: Alright. I know I'm supposed to be whipping Malachi's ass right now, but I have a proposition. Someone get Seth up on the screen.
The crowd is confused, but sure enough, the screen in the arena lights up with Seth Lerch.
Seth Lerch: What's up, Corey?
Creeping Death: Look, I kinda feel bad doing this, but I need this. Ten days ago was Friday the thirteenth. The way I see it, you owe me XIII (Thirteen).
Seth Lerch: Go on..
Creeping Death: This match with Malachi, I want it to be the main event.
Seth Lerch: I'm kind of drunk so whatever, sounds good to me.
Creeping Death: Not done. No DQ, please.
Seth Lerch: ... are you sure?
Creeping Death: Pfft, am I sure? Does a bear shit in the woods?
Seth Lerch: Alright sir, you've got it. Better not disappoint!
CD nods, and drops the microphone. The crowd is jacked up.
Zach Davis: XIII (Thirteen) is tonight! Blockbuster announcement!
Shannan Lerch: Hate.

"Hot Stuff" by Elize starts playing as "Hot Stuff" Micheal Nirvana walks out into the arena in a blue sports coat, white dress pants, black dress shirt, pink tie, and white dress shoes carrying a tennis racket with a black cover on it with BTJ written in yellow on it. He walks over to the announce set and takes a mic as he looks right at Shannon.
Micheal Nirvana: Well it seems as the first causaltie of the return of the greatest tag team ever in the World was that loud mouth Wunderlust of Influential Minds.
Micheal Nirvana: Thats right my boys are back together and are right now competeing against the best the World has to offer over in Japan in a yearly tournament going on in Tokyo as we speak. My boys are one win away from becomeing the very first two time winners of that tournament and when they return just like they did last year they plan on winning the WCF tag team titles. As far as we are concerned there are no champions right now since half of the chmapions ran off like the coward we knew he was. We are calling on Seth Lerch to declare the titles vacant and have a single elimination tournament starting at the very next SLAM with some of the WCF's best teams in it like my boys the Big Time Jerks, the New Confedercy, and hell why not the Cash Money Nightmares. Lets decide this once and for all who is WCF and who is just kidding themselves that they belong, Jason Kash. What you say WCF?

Creeping Death vs Malachi Wanderlust
Shannan Lerch: Our next match is a doozy. Bickering by both men backstage leads to this battle. Hall of Fame wrestler Creeping Death, king of the old WCF, taking on new Tag Team Champion Malachi Wanderlust.
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.
Zach Davis: This guy is huge and intimidating.
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. But CD has a microphone.
Creeping Death: Hello there, Malachi. Interesting name you have there. Might strike fear into other men, but me? I lived in Iowa for most of my life, surrounded by corn fields. Malachi is a bitch in those movies.
Zach Davis: He's obviously refering to 'Children of the Corn.'
Creeping Death: It's funny how things work around here.
CD is at the ring, and he slides in, standing up face to ... chest with Malachi.
Creeping Death: You're a pretty big dude. Almost a foot taller. Over a hundred pounds heavier. Thing is, you're Malachi Wanderlust, and I'm Creeping Dea-
WHAM CD nails Malachi in the top of the head with the microphoine, and the crowd errupts! The bell rings, and we are under way!
Zach Davis: Veteran trickery!
CD blasts Malachi in the head again, and again, the bell rings.
Shannan Lerch: HAHA he got disqualified!
The ref looks at CD, who raises the microphone to his mouth.
Creeping Death: Good try, Stanley. We both know this is under Rav- I mean CD's Rules.
WCF senior referee Stanley Moser nods, seemingly remembering the promo from earlier, and calls for the bell once again, this time to restart the match and call off the DQ!
Zach Davis: ... more veteran trickery!
Blam, blam, blam. CD begins wailing away on Malachi's head with the microphone. Malachi seems to be shaking it off, but still backing into a corner to try to avoid the annoyance of getting hit. In the corner, CD throws a big left knee into Malachi's abdomen, doubling him over. CD leaps up to the middle rope and comes backward with both knees into the back of Malachi's head!
Shannan Lerch: Goddamnit.
Malachi is out. CD stands over him, arms out, cheering with the crowd. Suddenly, someone pulls Malachi out of the ring.
Zach Davis: What...?
The dude is huge, and wearing a Michael Myers mask. This man stands Malachi up and points into the ring at CD.
Shannan Lerch: Is that one of the invaders? Malachi is working wi- oh.
The guy absolutely boots Malachi's head off with a big foot to the face!
Zach Davis: Jesus Christ! This guy is big enough to get his foot to Malachi's head!
On top of this new guy, here comes Jason Kash! Kash is wearing his WCF Tag Team Title. He slides into the ring and stands face to face with CD. CD backs away and focuses his attention on Malachi. He's in the ring now, having been thrown in by the big dude. The big guy walks around and grabs Malachi's Tag Belt... handing it up to Jason Kash. Kash and the Big Dude stand in the corner as CD looks down at Malachi, a beaten man.
Zach Davis: What in the hell is going on here?
CD drops to his knees and locks in a triangle hold on Malachi. Stanley Moser checks Malachi, and he's just done. The bell rings, signifying Creeping Death is the winner!
Shannan Lerch: I HATE CD SO GODDAMN MUCH!
CD stands quickly and readies himself against Kash and the Big Guy. Without warning, the masked invaders come running down the ramp!
Zach Davis: More?!
Six men are running down to the ring. CD has time to bail, but Jason Kash and the Big Dude are not so lucky. All six men begin kicking and punching at them, without mercy. One of the men lifts Kash up into a DVD, and another stands ready. Kash is thrown up and caught in the air with a piledriver, spiking him! The big guy is taken into the air by the biggest of the masked men, and dumped over the top rope directly on his back! He hits with a thud.
Shannan Lerch: More destruction by these men. Who will stand?
Creeping Death, having stood watch from the floor, slides in now that Kash and the Big Guy are taken out. CD steps right up to all six men, who fan out and circle CD.
Zach Davis: No way in hell CD is going to be able to do this.
All six dudes start slowly stepping in to fight, and CD stands tall...
Shannan Lerch: As much as I hate him, even I can't stand to watch this.
Shannan covers her eyes with both of her hands, refusing to watch.
Zach Davis: I thi..
The lights in the arena are cut out as everyone goes into panic mode, not in fear for CD's well being, but for fear of missing out on the beat down. Out of nowhere "4 Words To Choke Upon" hits the PA system and the crowd goes simply ballistic.
Zach Davis: OH FUCK!
The lights in the arena come back on and none other than Jay Price is standing at the top of the ramp in a pair of jeans and a white wife beater with a baseball bat in hand.
Shannan Lerch: JAY PRICE IS HERE!
Everyone in the ring turns to the ramp and stares at Price as he cracks his neck with his free hand....and then runs toward the ring at full speed. All six of the masked men bail out of the ring just as he slides under the bottom rope and begin to move toward the ramp. Price stands up and walks over to the ropes, inviting any of them to come back. They opt not to pursue anything and instead head up the ramp walking backwards as Price stares down all of them. Price then turns around only to come face to face with CD.
Zach Davis: This..is..epic. We all know about the history between these two, the hatred they have for one another.
A stare down ensues as Price lifts the bat up and places it on his shoulders as he looks into CD's eyes. The crowd is going crazy as they scream out for the battle that is surely going to happen. Flashes from thousands of cameras go off repeatedly as everyone tries to preserve the moment. Price takes a look around at the masses and then turns back to CD before simply nodding his head and turning to leave the ring. He climbs out through the ropes and heads up the ramp as the show fades out with a shot of CD standing alone in the ring.
